Lover of Nature
Recently, Jeroen and I had a conversation in the car. I asked him, 'Imagine if you find out you have only a year to live or a few months to live, what would you do with your life?'
I met death of loved ones, friends, elderly I ministered to... already as a little girl at age 11. The very first person who left the Earth is my 7 year old brother to brain tumour. I was shocked. I didn't know how to process my grief. My parents were too much in pain themselves to notice we, children, were also in a state of grief. I carried my grief for many many years until I became a therapist and learnt about the stages of grief and grieved.
Death is not something I avoid however often process it when it arises. Last year, I lost my mother-in-law, an aunt to illnesses, and now my father-in-law is also ill. Each time, I am awakened deeply within especially in most recent years when I dived deeply into silence and contemplation. I asked myself again the question above - what then will I do?
Life can be short, can be long. We never know.
What then do I want to do with my life if I really only have a year to live. Even my life is long.
I am going to live life, love life, be life, and doing what I truly find love and joy in.
What makes my heart sings. What makes my soul glee.
I love gardening. I love Nature, Forest, Mother Earth.
I love silence. I love creative arts.
I love retreats. I love contemplation.
What has helped me to return to wholeness.
What has helped me to come home.
I am now offering it to those who are open and ready to want to come home to wholeness, to Home within, with Nature after a long period of discernment.
Nita and I also offer retreats, online and face to face.
If my post touches and helps you, support our ministry in ways you want to support Nita and I.

Here is my gift to you today.
Gift of Pine Corns I found in the Forest Walk yesterday.
Gift of Pine Corns from Forest.
Day for Contemplation.
'Life is short.
Take a break.
Take a walk in the forest & smell the wild air.'
May you take a moment, take a pause, slow down, breathe, as you contemplate on the words or the photo of the pine corns (Above).
Let what draws you in this moment.
Take 15 min, sit in silence, in a quiet spot at home, in a nature area or a park you can find.
Imagine yourself taking a walk in the forest, smelling the pine trees in the wild air.
After 15 min, write down in a journal a poem, a prose, or draw what inspires you, let the gift unfold for you.
You can always extend it to 30 min, max of an hour.
Enjoy the Forest in the You Tube 'Take a walk in the trees & smell the wild air.'
Shalom! Blessings! Love To you!
