I Live My Life On Purpose: A Personal Manifesto
Last week I wrote a post on Facebook where I shared openly about my journey — from a past where I had to deal with detachment and abuse, which led to chronic illness, addiction, depression and anxiety throughout my childhood and adolescence.
I got so many lovely comments on that post, and it inspired me to share my personal manifesto with you, which is something I've been into since the beginning of 2018.
I first learnt about manifestation and affirmations from Alyse Brautigam from Raw Alignment, who publishes inspiring videos about veganism, manifestation and living a positive life. When she put up The Ultimate Guide to Manifestation, I was inspired to write my own personal manifesto.
I wrote down a list of goals & positive affirmations, ie. things I’d like to feel, achieve, and embody in the next couple of months, and I wrote them in the present tense, as if I’ve already achieved them in the future. When you repeat your manifesto to yourself every day, your mind will start to make new connections and look out for ways to achieve your goals, and you will naturally adjust your habits accordingly! Just this practice has helped me achieve almost any goal I set for myself:
- Clear up my eczema
- Recover from Epstein-Barr
- Heal from chronic headaches, nosebleeds, depression, anxiety, panic attacks
- Sleep through the night and wake up early with great energy
- Have steady energy throughout the day
- Align my actions with my intentions
- Create loving and compassionate relationships
- Be more confident & let go of fear of failure
- Protect my energy in stressful situations
It is truly powerful.
Every couple of months I revise and rewrite my manifesto so that it keeps inspiring me to take the next step.

Much love & good vibes your way,
I Live My Life On Purpose
I’m grateful for being well-rested and energized, so I can do what I love and be the best version of myself. I’m grateful for having a strong and healthy skin, and for having a strong immune system that is constantly working for me. I’m grateful for being able to eat an abundance of fresh, raw, ripe, organic fruits and vegetables that truly nourish me, and for being able to leave the toxic sugar and processed foods aside. I’m grateful for having a strong core, which gives me an open, upright, grounded and centered posture. Having a strong core makes me feel strong both physically and mentally. I’m grateful for feeling open and grounded even in stressful situations, because I always have a space of inner peace and strength inside of me that I can go back to when I need guidance.
I’m grateful for connecting with Nature and Sunshine every day, because this makes me feel present, connected, balanced, energized and in alignment both within myself and with my environment. I’m grateful for an abundant life intimately connected to Earth, and for living in an environment where I feel balanced, in alignment with myself, my purpose and my rhythm. I’m surrounded and infused with warmth, Sunshine, fresh air, clean water, and lots of beautiful plants which deeply heal me and provide me with all the nourishment and energy I need to be strong, healthy and outright *thriving*, so I have the consistent energy to give more and be of service with all my heart.
I’m grateful to be a conscious creator and holistic health coach, and for having a thriving online business and earning an income by doing what I love every day. My business generates multiple income streams, which allows me to buy organic whole foods in abundance, provide for myself and my family in the best way possible, travel when I want to travel, and support other conscious creators that I feel connected to.
I have forgiven my family for hurting me in the past and I fully love and accept them for who they are today. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I’m so grateful for being with Jeroen and for the unconditional love that we exchange. We always hold space for each other. I always do my best to understand him, and to express my own needs and considerations too, so we can grow and evolve together.
Jeroen and I live a life of abundance. By December 2019, we will have found our new home, a place filled with warmth, sunshine, fresh air, clean water, surrounded by Nature, lots of green plants, flowers, a forest. Our home is entirely made of natural materials — stone, wood, glass, earth — and lets in lots of natural light so that we feel connected to our environment all the time.
Our home is entirely eco-friendly and built in tune with Nature. The environment is clean, the air is clear. It’s a place where we can rejuvenate and recharge. It’s such an inspiring place, it truly feels like home.
My Values & Intentions
I appreciate and love myself so dearly. I always do my best and I have the best intentions with anything I undertake. I have the courage and confidence to put my own needs first. I highly value my Self, my physical and mental wellbeing, and so I make time every day to rest, relax and recharge, to breathe and meditate, to dance and stretch, to get into my body and strengthen my muscles, to eat nourishing plant foods, to spend time in Nature and with positive, uplifting people who inspire and motivate me to be my best Self.
I’m so excited to be attracting more like-minded people into my life — people who are inspired through plant-based healing to live a life of positivity and abundance.
I am a strong, compassionate, intelligent, beautiful Being with a unique gift and it would be of disservice to hold myself back from sharing my gift with others.
I’m confident to share my valuable thoughts, insights and creations on social media, my blog, and through coaching, because I know it will inspire others on their unique journeys, too.
I am worthy of living in abundance.
And so are you.
