Safety Stop

Safety Stop - het Boek 


Ik ben een boek aan het schrijven wat ´Safety Stop´ heet voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in een waargebeurd verhaal met themas als reizen, duiken, avontuur, drama en spiritualiteit. Ik deel vrolijke tijden wanneer ik als een duikinstructrice over de wereld reis, maar ook verdrietige tijden wanneer ik mijn beide ouders te vroeg aan kanker verlies. Ik zal je meenemen op een reis naar verschillende landen over de hele wereld, waar ik werk, woon en reis, zoekend naar het doel van het leven en mijn eigen lot. Mijn verhaal bevat ook romantiek, blunders, het waarmaken van dromen, waardes in het leven, het volgen van passies en hoe ik mijn eigen weg vind in een soms verwarrende wereld. Spirituele thema´s die aan bod komen bestaan uit de wet van aantrekking, mysterieuze toevalligheden, het maken van beslissingen en het realiseren waarom alles in het leven voor een reden gebeurt.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

I describe my inner journeys as I reflect in sometimes a spiritual and psychological way to all things that happened so far in my life. It might also get a bit anxious when I explain in detail my thoughts during a paranoia, which starts in a mysterious way but which I miraculously survive. Things can get confusing but pretty clarifying in the end. I realise that in most of my story I can find true examples of the teachings of Wayne Dyer, who has helped me seeing most of the things in life in a different perspective, with all his books and audios  during my ´Safety Stop´ in life. Throughout my story, I use many of his quotes, confirming real-life situations of his profound teachings.

The tittle - Safety Stop

Safety Stop, the tittle of this book, is symbolic and realistic at the same time.

As a diving instructor, I make many concrete ´safety stops´ in my life. As a recreational diver you always stop at the end of your dive for 3 minutes at 5 metres to release the nitrogen from your system, which has build up during your dive. When I´m working on the Maldives, I start to learn and practise meditation. In my safety stops, I start to use this time to become fully aware of the now, instead of just waiting these boring minutes to pass by.

Later in my story, I take a ´safety stop´ in life. Up until now I never stood still in life; I always worked a lot, many times doing double jobs, in order to go to the next place.  At some point I realised that I was trying to find happiness outside of myself, either in a new job, place or relationship, and I was never going to find it there. After many events happening in my life, I was stuck with many questions I could no longer run away from. I realised that my own life has pushed me to stand still for a short while to find the answers inside myself.


With my book I hope to be able to inspire others and encourage everybody to follow their own passions. I feel compelled to bring Wayne Dyer´s teachings available again and in a new way, specifically to my generation, since I believe it´s hardly needed in this time. I hope to help by sharing my story of loosing my parents and turning negative events in life into something positive, but also how we can make our dreams come true by believing in ourselves. I share how I become aware of the fact that there´s much more than we can experience with our physical senses and how I realise that what I considered selfish before is not what I thought it was, when I change my perspective on many things. You might gain some spiritual insights by reading my story, you might change your job and find your own passion, go travelling yourself or do nothing with it but just enjoy my story in which I take you travelling all over the world but also reflect to my inner world while I´m looking for the truth of life.
