Celebrating and.....preparing for a new start....

We celebrated the end of our renovation.
We did this with all the people who helped us.
Some by working on it,
others by giving idea's,
others by being there for us when we needed them.
I am sure some didn't even know
how important they were for us….
A beautiful gift and good reminder:
a good home must be made, not bought....

 A good home starts with ourselves...
Today we have a new moon and it is also the start
of the 3 months before Saturn and Pluto come together.
Both planets ask us to take responsibility
and let go of what is outdated and not necessary anymore.
-For people who did Astrology:
look in your chart were 23 degrees of Capricorn is.
That house, planets on these degrees will be involved-

I am sure most of you felt this big change already the last months.
It is not always an easy time AND...
if you realize you don't have to go through it alone,
it makes it easier….

do you feel safe enough to share your emotions
or do you feel:
'you shouldn't,
because it makes you look weak, not powerful etc etc'
If you feel like this,
you are dealing with
a Saturn that is not healed yet...
It only asks you to take responsibility for yourself!
you can be there for others,
but can not DO it for others...
Your 'job' is to look inside of you
and find out what YOU need.

Most of the time it has to do with your inner child:
your parents did the best they could,
however….you didn't come with a manuel...
-Astrology helps ;-)-

Does this mean you should be selfish?
No, it doesn't…..
Sometimes you made choices earlier in your life
and they come with consequences….

If you choose to be a parent,
the consequences are
that you have to be there for them
till they can take care of themselves.
You have to take care of you
make sure you take care of them….
This is not always easy
if you are an only parent,
or just going through a divorce.
Remember: you CAN do both!

If you choose to buy an expensive house
and you don't like your job anymore,
you have to find a solution,
take responsibility and make some changes.
Changes that makes you happy again.
It can take time....don't hurry,
Saturn is patient :-)

How is it with your home,
your first home....
your body?
Do you take good care of it
or does that needs 'renovation' as well?
Do you give it good food,
enough rest,
and are you grateful for it sighs?
Are you trusting its self healing capacity?
For me it is still challenging sometimes….
I realise that
-even though it is years ago-
the period I had cancer
still has some issues,
emotional issues..
A nice small waterfall in the autumn forest
reminded me that it is ok to feel
and ok to let go.

The coming month 
Mercury will go Retrograde:
how do YOU talk to yourself?
If it is not loving all the time,
than this is the time to change it.

Don't blame situations,
let go of conflicts
and take time to look in yourself.
So you create space,
space for the things you want,
space, so you can attract what you want.
Responsibility and transformation,
Saturn and Pluto.

I hope you find the time to write down
what makes you grateful
and also what you like to attract more
and be prepared to get it!

I am looking forward to it,
We are looking forward to it.

….as a reminder to trust,
I planted bulb's,
=also a present we got-
They gave us the bulb's,
like the Comos gives us opportunity's
It is on us to plant them, 
give them what they need and then…..
trust that we have beautiful flowers the next year...
I will let you know :-)

Celebrate life....

This pictures was made on Thanksgiving.
A picture that shows one way of grieving...

It is a picture of people celebrating life, having fun.
People who had just heard that a loved one died,
for most of them very sudden….
The people on this picture are
heart broken AND celebrate life...

They came together,
watch video's of years ago,
cried, laughed, 
shared stories.

Thanksgiving day.

When I looked closer at the angel in the picture
I shared in my last blog I saw this
the gratitude sign on the wings….

The morning after I wrote the blog,
I woke up with a song and an image.
The image was a grandfather 
welcoming his granddaughter
with a 'bear hug'....
And then, 
when leaving the room

another 'message from heaven'.
I hope and wish all her loved ones
will see the signs she will sure send them.

The stone

I have shifted a stone
in a river on earth
The water flows different
then it did before.

You can't stop the flow of a river,
water always finds a way around.
Maybe once filled by snow and rain
the river takes my pebble with it.
It takes it, 
to make it smooth and round
to let it rest in the calm of the sea.

I moved a stone in a river on earth
Now I know I will never be forgotten.
I proved my existence
because by moving that one stone
the flow will never go the same way again.

-free translation of poem Bram Vermeulen-

You really made a difference to a lot of people Julie!
You will never be forgotten.

I am sure you all have a 'Julie'....

Make sure to call there name-s-,
share memories,
laugh, cry
and …..
keep doing that,
because it is as the same person -Bram Vermeulen- wrote:

'And if I die, don't be sad,
I am not really dead, you know,
It is just the body that I left,
I only die 
if I am forgotten.'
talk about your loved ones,
they are special.

I am so grateful, 
I was there when all this happend.
I believe we are always there where we should be.

I am also human:
if someone I love has to go to the other side,
I miss talking to them,
hugging them,
and I am sad......

On the other hand:
I am also grateful they where in my life,
they changed my life,
and I Know
they are still there for me,
in an other way.

Transformation, renovation, dead.....
a way of growing,
We are in an energy of big change.
Make sure you take time for YOU,
Know, you are not alone,
Ask help if you need to
accept and be grateful...

Celebrate life!

Life happens, when you make other plans.....

When I saw all these white feathers,
I knew something would happen.
that a lot of angels would be there for help....

It is not always easy to accept life.
We like it to be how we want it to be
sometimes that is not what is best for us
if we look at the big picture.....
It is not easy,
because we don't know the big picture....
We have to trust, accept
after letting go,
start living again….

How do you do that?!?
Can you see the rainbow 
if you lose someone you love?
Do you have to see the rainbow,
or is it ok to know there is one,
and take time to grieve...

I think it is the last one….
You should take time to grieve,
to let go,
to forgive,

and Know,
when you have to let go of a loved one,
that there is an angel on the other side,
who will be there for you….always….

This week we went to visit family
and they had to let go of a loved one,
in 2 days…..
How do you do that?!?...
One day at the time....

A young mother,
not only for her son,
but for  all the children she met.
A warm, loving, vibrant woman
full of life,
had to let go...

She has a great mom,
who is also a mother for a lot of people.
She takes care of everyone around her,
and now….
she has to let go....
How can she do that?!?

One day at the time....
Taking time for herself,
accept help,
and accept lots of hugs.

She has also a grandmother,
who has lots of grandchildren
but this girls was special...
She lived close by,
visited often.
How can she let go.....
Does she think:
'why her and not me,
she is still so young!'

A lot of questions and no answers….

Trusting that there is a reason,
even if we don't know why.
Trusting that she is met by loved ones
on 'the other side'

And that she will be there to help her son
her husband, her mom
and everyone who needs it.
Not here on earth
but 'on the other side'.....

A lot of people are in a period of change,
it is like this 'whirlpool':
you need to find a new way,
and this doesn't go quietly….
Like this water: 
it needs to find a new way
and that makes a lot of noise,
a lot of turmoil..
it doesn't go quietly...
It is like emotions…
transformation, change
is not a smooth proces…..
it is a 'fork in the road',
we have to find a new way....

I hope everyone who feels like being in a 'whirlpool'
has people around them
to hug,
people who will let them be,
AND will be there for them:
they need it.

Reach out,
if you feel you need help
and look for signs….
they are always there!

This evening I found this on my bed...

A rose,
for everyone who needs it.
A rose for the 'rose family'
A rose to let you know
you are loved unconditionally.

Enjoy life,
and make new memory's everyday!
