    The Beauty of Music – Healing Sounds

    Music heals! Did you know this? Listening to music can give us energy, calmness, peace, and joy, but it can also make us aggressive. It depends on the frequencies of the tones. Music is also used to connect us with our spirituality, with God. Many indigenous populations use specific instruments to balance the body, mind, and spirit. The sounds enter the body and bring the body’s cells in a certain harmony that heals. Some people use flutes or drums or singing bowls for meditation. It is the same with natural, high-quality food with high electricity that heals the body. Music as a Tool to Detox Body and Mind Music can…

    Inspired by the Style of Spring- Classy and Sustainable

    Spring has arrived, and we are longing for the warmth of the sun. Our heart will get rid of the heavy winter clothing and, inspired by the style of spring, walk around in pretty dresses, trousers, and blouses, accompanied by beautiful sandals, handbags, and accessories showing it is spring. Every season, an inner force leads us to study catalogs, search fashion shops, and find a suitable outfit. All women and men love to do that; maybe men are less tempted. I love fashion, but I do not depend on the seasonal fashion code dictated by designers. I have found my style and going for the timeless, classy, and sportive design;…

    The Magic of Spring – Welcome Queen Bumble Bee

    Finally, there is the most favored season of the year, spring. The magic of spring lies in the higher temperatures, the life that is awakening everywhere around us. The sun is shining, temperatures are rising, flowers come up about, and you hear the insects flying, especially the beautiful sound of the bumblebees. The birds are singing; the hedgehogs are waking up. Everything looks bright, waking up from the cold wintertime. I love the spring; I love the warm temperatures, warming me up, the smell of the flowers, and the cute bumblebee queens, which are flying around to get the first nectar and polls for their breed. My little fairy garden…

    The Beauty of the Busy Bee in My Garden?

    How to attract bees to my garden is a question I ask myself very often because I noticed that even I have a paradise for the little friends, they have decreased in numbers over the last years, which makes me very sad. The beauty of the busy bee in my garden is something I will not miss, and I do everything for them to love my garden. Her decreased numbers show that many neighbors are still using pesticides and herbicides in their gardens or even have no real flowers for the bees. In the garden shops, you can purchase many different flowers, mostly cultivated, so that many bees and bumblebees…

    How to Reduce Carbon- A Deeper Life

    At the moment, the new word that seems to have an exclusive meaning is “Sustainability.” Everything has to be sustainable and “Green” because armies of industries and stakeholders try to establish a new market. First, they and we have exploited the planet. Now they try to make huge profits by leading us in a for them unique market opportunity, ‘ green and sustainable, not that I am against sustainability, you know I am fighting for the Earth. However, they change the market goal and still exploit the planet and us! The industry has been the leading polluter for decades, yes, by now, centuries. And now they want still follow their…

    Living Two Worlds- Combine the Modern and the Old Way

    This article is updated! Originally published in June 2021. Why should we want to stop and rethink our lifestyle? Living two worlds, combining the modern and the old-fashioned worlds, is for many people necessary. I know people who can’t find their way in this modern world with all the greediness, the destruction, the noise, the flood of impressions, the consumption, the exploitation of our world. They feel that they can’t escape a world that makes them ill anymore. If you love to live quietly and live in a growing city, you can’t flee the noise. Maybe you think these people are mostly older folks who lived in the older norm.…

    Summer in the City- Use Your Bicycle!-Update!

    Do you love summer? I know many people who actually don’t like the summer, because it is too hot, or they have pollen allergies what I think is really very uncomfortable, to say at least. Summer here in the Netherlands is beautiful but short, so I try to enjoy it very much. If you live in the city, you experience summer differently as someone who lives in the countryside, or close to the sea. Summer in the city, you might get your bicycle out, but maybe you experience problems with breathing? Here in the Netherlands, people cycle very much. The country is mostly flat, not in the south or east,…

    What are the Benefits of Shopping Local?

    Because of the Corona restrictions, many small businesses are nearly bankrupt. They are in lockdown and not allowed to open their shops. The big supermarkets and chains are still available for the people. It is ridiculous because it is so crowded that people cannot keep their distance when you go to a supermarket. You need to know the reason for this political decision. It is desired! You need to know what is going on to understand that there is an elite, only some thousand people, who try to control the world. The stakeholders behind these huge chains are the investors who own the food supply and make huge profits, a…
