Participation in InFo Day to promote health

Sunday 27 January 2019 from 11 a.m. until 4 pm I will be participating in the InFo Day to promote health in ‘t Sjtaater Hoes Partycentrum in Kerkrade. A wonderful initiative of Lieky van der Velden, who manages several support groups, to exchange information and personal experiences, thus stimulating people to take charge of their own health!

As a writer, speaker and experience expert in the field of mind power, the mind-body connection and self healing, I will be present with information about my lectures and workshops that show you how to use your mind as a tool to steer your health in the most positive direction. You’ll also be able to buy a (signed) copy of my book ‘The Year of the Owl’ which describes my transformational journey from the head to the heart  due to an intense spiritual experience after my father’s passing. It eventually even led to my decision to quit my job as a public prosecutor in order to become a writer.

‘The Year of the Owl’ is an empowering book that is full of hope, love and strength. It shows that people are more resilient than they think and gives new insights into the incredible power of the human mind.

This InFo Day is for everyone who (pro)actively wants to boost their health. So come to Kerkrade on Sunday 27 th of January and be surprised by all that is offered to you!


Participation in ‘De Droommachine’ (‘The Dreammachine’)

On December 12th 2018 Pascale, together with vitality expert Anita Verstappen of ‘Preventivio’ and ‘Puur en Balans’, will participate in ‘De Droommachine’. The Dream Machine asks the question: ‘For whom would you want to make a dream come true and why?’

Today Pascale will, together with other entrepreneurs, help realize other people’s dreams. As you may already know, this is one of the things that make her really happy:-). Creative thinking, inspiring each other, linking networks…everything in order to reach the best results!

Pascale is looking forward to this magical day!

Check out my new website!

The last couple of weeks I have spent a lot of time reorganizing my website so that you, my dear reader, can find your way around even better than before. You’ll see that I’ve removed a lot of content and have added some new features. One of these new items is my blog that I’ll start soon. This blog has two different theme’s: the first theme is ‘well being’ and the second is ‘From desire to reality’, how to make your dreams come true.

My blogs on well being will share all my knowledge and experience about how to thrive, physically as well as mentally. In these blogs I’ll write about new and interesting scientific insights about health, longevity, dynamic aging and how to use your consciousness to steer your life and health in the most positive direction.

In my blogs ‘From desire to reality’ I’ll pass on my own experiences with the Law of Attraction. What is this exactly? What are the reasons why this law sometimes doesn’t (seem to) work? Here you can learn how to overcome your fears in order to finally take concrete steps in the direction of your dream, like I have done.

Hope you’ll enjoy them!

Keep sparkling!

Heroine’s Journey

On September 18, 2018, a personal portrait of me has been published in ‘Heroine’s Journey’, a beautiful and inspiring initiative to bring an homage to women who have chosen to do what they love best. Big thanks to Peter de Kuster who has approached me for this!

NB: Picture had to be a selfie, in case you’re wondering  why there is such strange light .


Feel like reading?

Do you feel like reading a non-fiction book?

‘Mijn eerste lijk is gelukkig vers’ (‘Fortunately, my first corpse is fresh’) is a book about my adventures as a public prosecutor. Do you want to know how it really works in the DA’s office? What it’s like to be present at an autopsy? What it feels like to be at a bloody crime scene? This book describes murder and manslaughter cases, vice cases and how the police go under cover to solve a gruesome murdercase. But it is also a book about the doubts and dilemmas of this hectic job, about funny and sometimes even hilarious moments in court and about heartwrenching events in and outside of the courtroom. A very personal look into a world that normally remains closed. On Bol.com, the Dutch Amazon, the book gets more than 4 stars (4,2).

In ‘Het jaar van de uil’, ‘The year of the owl’, you can read about a series of miraculous events that happened to me after my father died. It’s a book about an unbreakable father-daughter bond, about resilience after having hit rock bottom and about a personal transformation process that eventually leads to my decision to leave my job as a DA in order to follow my writer’s heart. On bol.com the book gets almost the maximum amount of five stars (4,8).

According to the appreciation of readers, both books are a good choice.

Maybe you like them too! Also available as e-book (‘Mijn eerste lijk is gelukkig vers’ € 13,99, ‘Het jaar van de uil’€ 9,99).
