About me

My love for writing commenced during the turmoil years of my teens when I kept a diary to pen down my thoughts and feelings about this delicate period of change towards adulthood. Years later, when living abroad, I continued to make notes of my new life experiences and wrote many long letters to my family and friends back home. Gradually, I stopped writing on a regular base, seemingly too busy to give form to the unfolding of my life.

Throughout adulthood, I began to develop a chronic ailment, which slowly took away a big part of my energy, joy, and vitality. By the time I had reached 40, the wind of change had blown my life entirely upside down. Left with barely enough energy to move around in my small apartment and nowhere to go, the only place left for answers was within.

In the process of finding meaning behind this lingering situation, I discovered how embedded patterns with unresolved pain and grief had affected my life in profound ways, limiting me from embodying my fullest potential. This was the beginning of an unraveling journey that brought me to the essence of my being.

Evntually, I discovered the joy of writing again, which appeared to be the perfect way to bring my thoughts, feelings, and inspired ideas into perspective.Β In the middle of this all, I found my partner Ramona, the most wonderful companion I could wish for and a life savior.

Thanks to the introduction of social media, I connected with people from all corners of the world, likeminded, and from different walks of life. Hence, I became part of a inspirational community that enriched my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined.

Even though my energy level never fully returned, I learned to accept life as it is, eventually embracing my flaws. More importantly, to love and forgive myself for all that hadn’t worked out the way I had wished for. As a result, I experience more joy, inner peace, and freedom.

During this process, I felt an inner longing to create an online community, as a means to inspire others to become aware of the human potential to raise awareness to a higher level of existing, enabling us to create more joy, meaning and abundance in our lives.

Today, I feel enormous gratitude for all the lessons and blessings I have received. Every step of my life’s journey contributed to where I am today. Vigorously, wiser, and with an increased love and compassion towards myself and others.Β With new challenges every day, this journey is a never-ending process in the unfolding of a beautiful and harmonious way of being.

Thank you for connecting!

With Love,
Monique ツ
