As you know, I am finally attempting to write that book, titled
“the Right Brain for the Right Time” – You don’t have to be Dyslexic, but it Helps
(or another version of a subtitle: Unlock the Dyslexic Potential and turn frustrated readers into inspiring leaders)…what’s better?
The cover that came back (an X-ray skull on green background) just didn’t do it for me, so I have asked some of my artist friends to send their art and input. I really love this one by my Austrian Artist friend Thomas Girbl…but not sure if it relates to the story.Stacey O’Neil
the second graphic version came from Wellington, NZ, my lovely artist friend Stacey sent it and I love it! Again, I think it won’t give the message I try to give – but what do you think?
This actually does give an interesting message, in relation to the story, with the tree and its branches symbolising the brain, growth, potential, and creativity in its shape. It comes from Google images and therefore lacks the personal touch, though.
After all that, I guess it’s time to actually start writing…Hoi by the Sea is the PERFECT place for it, I found. Total peace and serenity, unless you don’t like the sound of the ocean.
from Juicing to Souping:
Due to the cold, we have switched week one of The Month of Transformation (July) from juicing to souping. Making our own healthy stock, it’s just as beneficial to cleanse, de-tox and feel fantastic.
The body will shrink, the mind will clear and sharpen, every organ will breathe a sigh of relief. It will be the perfect pre-cursor to the Family Constellation work the week after, followed by Access Consciousness Healing. Check it out on http://www.hoibythesea.com
What an inspirational lady, born in Zimbabwe, out of Auckland/NZ, to help a group of us ‘hopeful authors’ to put our thoughts, ideas and creative inspirations into a book, helping us to write, create and market it within the next 3 months. So finally, the book in my head, will hopefully become a reality. Will keep you updated! Wish me good luck.
P.S. I will use my month of Transformation in July – at the Entrance – to write as much as I can. If anyone feels they need the inspiration of the sea, the tranquility of the environment there and my limited ability to help in the process, please let me know. You are most welcome!
Picture Thinkers (Dyslexics)
As you may know, correcting Dyslexia while people are on holidays for a week, has been the starting point for Hoi by the Sea. Now this special place has grown to become a hub for healers, thinkers, artists, coaches and other changing agents.
For all my Dyslexic Clients, their parents, teachers or adults on the Right Side of the Brain:
I have started an additional blog, which you can find at:
I am posting the content mainly in short videos (YouTube clips) to address different aspects, answer questions about Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, Asperger, Autism… – add humor and lightness around the subject, as well as basic grammar lessons, especially from the point of view of Dyslexia.
Please subscribe to the blog, if you wish to receive these free weekly snippets.

Place the following ingredients into a Thermamix or other strong blender:
500 g pitted prunes
150 g cashew nuts (or macadamia nuts)
juice of 1 lemon
80 g pitted dates (or 1/2 tsp stevia/natural sweetener)
After mixing it into a paste, spread it over a sheet of baking paper, stick 150 – 200 g walnuts on top (press into paste) and roll the paper
into a roll, which ends up looking like a ‘salami sized’ roll of about 5 – 8 cm diameter.
Place in fridge and cut into slices of your preferred thickness. Yummy and makes sure that your digestions works like clockwork. Much healthier than biscuits!

Family Constellation method
When someone brings a difficulty for family constellations, it is heard by
a group of people sitting in a circle. That person is then invited to set up
a constellation as they see it, asking people from the group to represent
members of their family. The facilitator then asks the representatives to
comment on their experiences and manoeuvres the constellation, releasing
information from the “collective consciousness” of the actual family group.
With stunning accuracy the constellation reveals its long held beliefs, hurts
and patterns of behaviour of the family system. This just is. There is no
judgement. The system also indicates what needs to happen for it to return it
to harmony and balance.
This may sound like magic; however, we have all had experiences like this.
We may sometimes feel ourselves in ‘somebody else’s shoes’. At times we
feel strongly connected with others, perhaps when involved in team sports,
or during family gatherings, or when we feel deep love. We have all had
experiences of synchronicity and déjà vue. However, it is much stronger
during Family Constellation, when the “morphogenetic field” (a.k.a. ‘the
knowing field’) is entered and representatives for family members access
feelings, emotions, very often the characteristic behaviour of people they have
never met or never heard of before.
The method of work is deeply humbling and unique in the way it demonstrates
that we are all truly one. While representatives may think they are helping a
particular person and family, shifts happen in their own lives for the better. At
one level we all share the same stories and we are all connected. The key is
the restoration of love
