Once upon a time, as all stories start I came into the world. Then one day as a young adult I had the great good fortune to get *a job*, WORKING  for the former British Crown Colony HONG KONG. I began on the 1st of May, 1972 and I left those beautiful offices on 31st October, 1988.

Today, fast forward I am a resident of TURKEY, I live in the southern part of this beautiful country and life is really g.o.o.d. Lots and lots of fresh, clean air, organically grown veggies, fruit, similar eggs, and an extremely PRIVATE comfortable place to enjoy, day in day out.

Yesterday I talked to an old business friend of mine and because of it, my memories returned to what I used to do with so much love and passion: working for HONG KONG, which always was easier to explain than telling others what my job really entailed. You see, saying: I am The Representative BENELUX for The Hong Kong Trade Development Council always drew blanks.

People had no idea what that meant nor what I was busy doing. That quasi-governmental organization (HKTDC) which opened its doors – in Hong Kong –  in 1966 had the commitment to *put Hong Kong* at everyone’s door. Imports-Exports and above all promoting FREE TRADE between the former British Crown Colony and every country on the globe.

The Amsterdam Office was one of the first HKTDC offices opening that door on the 1st of May, 1972, after offices in the first chosen MAJOR countries such as Great Britain, the USA, Germany. Great! I was there from the start. I knew exactly what I was supposed to do and back then: yes –  we hired some premises, we registered with the Amsterdam Chamber of Commerce, got ourselves some desks and chairs, a telephone, a typewriter, a COFFEE machine and: we were ready for business, doors open  Monday to Friday 09.00-1700.

Today this sounds very peculiar, but in 1972 no faxes, printers, PC’s, photocopiers, not even a secretary we started out with. But I was HAPPY simply because I *was working for HONG KONG*, a place that had always been a MAGICAL one for me. Yes. Ever since I was in my early 20-ies, as a Stewardess (now called Flight/Cabin attendant) HONG KONG had been a place of magic.

Also today I decided to check online if I -at last- could find something about my former boss LEN DUNNING. He had the creative mind and foresight to convince the Hong Government that such an organization was NEEDED. With *carte blanche*, an open ticket around the world he visited countries where similar bodies already existed, and with that personal in-depth, he founded the HKTDC (1966).

LEN DUNNING – *In Memoriam*  12th March,1930 to 6th July,2011 and an excellent Obituary. He did become 81, yet I was *shocked*. Not because I thought *far too young to die*, but just shocked that Len is no longer alive and of course that because of circumstances, preventing  I had never seen or talked to him again. It was not that I ever was close to him, but he was my *ultimate* superior for many many years. Boy, do I hate it, does such make me sad…now I can never tell him just how much I respected him for CREATING such a fantastic organization, that Hong Kong Trade Development Council. The ideas that were born in his head and also realized were so unbelievably great. Spectacular shows, real fireworks, always and exclusively to attract the attention of foreign officials and public.

For me personally, as just one of those Overseas Reps. i.e. Willy Holmes from The Amsterdam Office, thank you Len Dunning, thank you. Without you I would never have had the opportunity to have such a great career as The BENELUX Representative HKTDC. Also, I would never have met such a melange of interesting people: from pauper to king. Always with only one mission and that was, still is:  to get them GO –  visit HONG KONG.

One day in our lives full of joy and happiness + good company/food.

One day in our lives full of joy and happiness + good company/food.

Sometimes a picture tells you more than just 1000 words. Here: quite a story, my own, with 22 years of living experience in this beautiful country in the mysterious Occident, and now: my 2 eldest lovely granddaughters SHARING their Gran’s life for a brief moment in time. But: we did not have 1 spare minute with still many many things to discover. Next time, probably earlier on in the season.

For My Much Loved Grandchildren

8 05 2013

Today, feeling *in the Spirit* of AMBER I must write a few words.

Yes: they make me a happy grandmother. Why? Well they send me sweet messages. I live in far away Turkey, they are busy with their young lives in my home town Amsterdam, The Netherlands, so I cannot just pop around or ask them to come over for some nice home-cooked food.

Today: I also talked to one of my oldest (male) friends – Skype – of course, and also that was a nice small moment, making today a good one too.

Yesterday, oh boy: did I have fun going into Fethiye to do a bit of shopping, withdraw some CASH from the BEST bank ever: HSBC (good old Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation) They have 2 ATM’s, typical I suddenly noticed, although I know they do have 2, yes a typical HONG KONG minded practical business approach. One was empty €, oh dear, another bank, but oh no, lets try #2 and that produced the much desired money.

It made me happy, I love it when everything goes smoothly and according to what is best for me (and WHO does not, eh?) Sometimes though everything seems to NOT go like that and then I get really irritable even to the point of feeling worn out i.e. start developing some sort of depressed feeling.

But: I fight with every inch of my being to NOT let any nasty vibe get at me to ruin my own good *I*. To spoil my happy frame of mind actually is strictly forbidden you see.

I knew several persons in the past, who always were out to do that.

Such so-called *friends*: who needs enemies with friends like that we used to say when I was surrounded by folks from Amsterdam, in Amsterdam with *the same sense of humour*. Yes having a good sense of humour next to a lot of practical common sense: I get along with people like that famously.

Such people create in me: zest for life, laughter, smiles, create *I feel  good* (brain/train) motions. Yes. It is far better than listening to a whining voice, with under- and overtones of whatever they have NOT *going* in their lives.

I mean: such people are great to have as clients of course, but not when I am out and about in my own free time.

Which makes me *jump* to this:

LOVE = NEVER ENOUGH, a great book by one of the best 20th Century psychiatrists on the planet Dr. Aaron Beck (named in one breath with Freud and Jung). In 2010 I ordered it and the fact that the book actually arrived where I live these days was already such a happy moment that I put it away on my Bookshelf without going through all his patient case-studies.

However, as a trained Methaphysician having a book like that in my house is already enough to *work* with, although working with such subtle vibrations does take some time to take effect. and often evoke months and months of plain hard labour working with one of my favourite (magic) squares, the Venus Square, and on paper (ruitjes-papier) i.e paper with little squares (grids).

NOTE: anyone WHO happens to stumble upon this article may think ??? what was I trying to read, what was I searching for in the GOOGLE searchengine ?? Sorry about that, and please forgive me, but please do remember: this article is basically about me – i.e. WillySaysSo and for my own grandchildren.

I am doing this in a nice, yet sneaky, round about way, because when I *tell* them something, well every adult, parent or university lecturer knows it: often students nod off a bit, do they not?

But: what I do write, because I do know a few things: well: if others can use it too: I am happy. After all: you the reader may not yet have heard about this, that, and what I have discovered, worked out (on paper). Not that many online *marketeers* have the time to begin a METAPHYSICAL research and discovery project such as I started doing from 1991.

Yes, I am happy, not only for the above listed reasons only, but especially because MY LOVELY GRANDCHILDREN *love* me.

Wow, if that is not the greatest compliment a grizzly old gran can get. Honestly, I am serious.

My grandchildren through some terrible sadness of mine = losing one of my 2 children through a terminal brain tumor last year, 30th January, 2012 have become more precious and valuable to me, than I could ever have believed possible – should a fortune teller have forcasted that to me, for instance.

I know it is amazing, they are amazing, and because I have become a trained and practizing professional Methaphysician – amazing things are happening now, but only I know that.

Always, really, I never think beforehand in a calculating way, I mean, I never lay Tarod Cards, I never consult *The I Ching Book*, I just go about things as if I am just an ordinary person (which I am of course), Yes. And then sometimes but not always something happens that I have to work out for myself! = Some MAGIC is knocking on my (metaphysical) door and I am not yet hearing it, i.e. still too ignorant to know what it could possibly be.

Once I am in Essential Oil *Heaven* such things did happen before and also right now: I am *on to something*

So for instance, yesterday when I walked through the beautiful Fethiye marketplace (Gün Pazar) open Daily that is: I stopped by to say hello to my friends at *Sister’s Place. These nice helpfull people sell herbs, spices and above all: very good *ESSENTIALS OILS*.

Where have you been they asked. Oh well I might as well come in then, sit down, have a look around and then. after buying some very ordinary stuff such as garlic powder, turmeric and flaming hot red chili pepper flakes: WOW.

What did I see there: I screamed with delight – Tarik, come back, he tried to escape you see: Tarik HELP please: those oils…I trembled with excitement, because I did not have those in my own collection of over about 120 different ones.

And I ordered, 50 ml. bottles of Peony, Bluebell, *RÜHEL MISK*, the most intriguing AMBER musk, Safflower (blossom), my very *beloved* WHITE ROSE and some more of the more common/known ones, such as: Basilicum, Turkish T.Tree.

As if MONEY is growing on trees, eh? Well it is not where I live of course, however – why not spend a bit of (my) money on myself, I reasoned.

Anyway, I sighed, because before I start working with unknown to me essential oils, such as Peony, Bluebell I do have to check online and read what the healing/medicinal properties are, to give my brain (through my eyes) a whiff of what is coming (ha,ha).

It was ok, not that much to check. Happy!! Done!!

Now around 19.30 pm my time in Turkey: I just have to end this or else I get behind doing the stuff I do evenings.

Meanwhile wishing to post this article: the KEYWORDS eh!!

Those magical keywords that the Google searchengine actually likes, respects and gets your article *published* there: pff but I shall put a few down.

With much gratitude that I am an online person, and so much more that I like to write about: until quite soon i.e. there is a lot, a lot more *in me* and best is it not, for me that is, that I get it out and rolling.

THE WORD, and reading out loud – WOW-ee

25 03 2013

Do you like to listen to someone reading? Yes of course you do. It is so soothing specially when you are about to be tucked in, and the voice you listen to slowly makes you drift of into the wonderful land of NOD.

I feel most honored as one of only over one hundred invitees to listen to a LIVE read by my dear friend Rebecca A Messenger from  her new book. WOW-ee. Her email arrived in my box, I always open hers, honestly, clicked through, got onto her Google plus page and YES of course YES, I want to be there together with some guests, gathered around me to be part of this very special momentum.

YES. And when I read the question whether Jezus had had past lives, I really became so excited that I wanted to shout out loud. I grinned too. Of course Jezus had past lives, of course. Also I once questioned that, or it sort of drifted my way whilst walking around in the Mystical Valley of Kaya Koyu when I first arrived here in 1992. I am still living in that valley by the way.

So much has happened since then, too much that actually had to do with Jezus and his dear mother Mary, and I am not even religious nor a Catholic. Jeez I kept saying to myself, what does all that have to do with me, with me just minding my own business. Go away, I said, just get out of my valley, my life, I am NOT interested.

But – it did not. It just kept going on and on. And long before I was working with a PC, had a mobile telephone, tablet, ebook-reader, had found the www.emofree.com website, and subscribed to many many great EFT-ers, offering some of the most interesting stuff, from early 2006 until now. Rebecca then Marina I found, and at once, she is an interesting woman, always coming up with things that made me curious.

www,emofree.com – the site once owned by the founder of EFT, Gary Craig, well he has moved on, his first EFT masters have moved on, and also Rebecca went from strength to strength with next Saturday 30th March, 2013 reading a chapter from her new book. I am so curious. And of course I hope that the book shall become an overnight best-seller, on the New York list of best selling books, that Rebecca shall go and travel the world.

I said to Rebecca on several occasions – you should come and visit me here, where all this stuff really took place, where Jezus walked, where his mother Mary-s grave really exists in Ephysis, where GOD thundered and cracked the planet, where most of the Archangels continue to influence our lives. As a mystic, a psychic, a see-er, here is the place to collect all data – aka – THE VIBES to proceed with all that someone gifted with multi-sensoric abilities would want to add to his or her own valuable awareness-es.

Note, once I was at last able to be online, 2-2006, I checked out just about everything and everyone, who formerly I had been in touch with, whilst a health practitioner with a clinic in my own home city, lovely Amsterdam, and as a metaphysical student. Quotes from these, such as Deepak Chopra, Carolyn Myss, Chris Griscom, Louisa Hay – I would not ever want to use. I met them – as a keen student, they already well known and visiting Amsterdam presenting themselves through a purchased seminar ticket.

Wow, was I happy to check all of them out, look at their websites, see what they had been up to since I dropped of the map, moving to this part of the world. I did conclude though, and I apologize that I am writing this down – nothing really nothing NEW I found on their websites. About Carolyn Myss – she went to a lot of countries, but not to where the real mystical stuff exists, right where I have now lived for nearly 20 years. I found that disappointing, also rather strange.

Louisa Hay I have always liked, I still use her list of modalities A – Z illnesses and what can be said to do something yourself to improve your own well being. Hay House Radio became something I listened to with pleasure for a while, then once I had investigated that and some of the star speakers – OKAY – done. Nice but my life needs new fresh different impulses.

Chris Griscom, that really beautiful etherical creature, drifting in her snowwhite robes – wow what an interesting experience that became, still the same, still writing her books, however due to my domestic set-up with 8 cats, not a viable option for me at the moment to go and experience again.

And about the most knowledgeable Deepak Chopra, the book he wrote and I once bought and read – Quantum Healing, very very interesting, but a bit complicated unless you are a physicist, Einsteinian. However, it served its purpose, I found what I needed to become aware of – quarks and anti-quarks, and thoughts, and how that works, 1991, since then he has become rather well-known as a very spiritual person, however never underestimate his extensive MEDICAL knowledge together with the oldest healing medicine on the planet AYURVEDA.

Their quotes, as Rebecca mentioned – these are NOT yours, not mine either. The only quotes I really like or find impressive are those of PLATO and of Oscar Wilde, the latter-s actually are hilariously funny. So funny that I read them from time to time in order to remind myself of just how special the English, English language can be used.

I need funny ha-ha stuff in my life simply because that is what I love best. Stuff that makes you smile with love and pleasure, or remembering occasions, incidents. 

NOW, whilst I end this little piece of mine – all I have left of my day until I hit the sack – i.e. go to sleep on this Monday 25th March is only 2 hours, until midnight. And you know what – am I stupid – I just remembered that it is also someone-s birthday. The man who was born on that day in 1961 in Izmir Turkey, well would anyone believe me when I tell them – that ladies and gentlemen was JEZUS, alive and kicking once until he died in 2003 or was it 2004, I forget.

Of course I do not have any proof, do I? However I just knew, although it took me years to get to the bottom of all that, through vibrations. Once through all those years that I had the mis-fortune to know him, he made me laugh, that my dear Lord Jezus.  As I said, no proof, no proof at all, however I took it seriously just in case and did I learn something? Yes, oh yes, but only as the tip of the proverbial iceberg . There was much more to unravel, so I plodded on to once again get to the bottom of yet something else – mystical.

Some persons on our planet appear to have some karmic job to accomplish. Whatever it was that I had to do – I did it, and Jezus and many more interesting entities I encountered were only items on the Universe-s calendar or so it turned out for me.

Strange? Yes very peculiar. It leaves me now with only – ordinary daily chores and events to master and keep under control. Not at all boring or dreary, but once I have accomplished – enough is enough, I have become so finely tuned now that my entity then tells me – stop – enough. STRESS you see is the undoing of mankind and STRESS, once just a full page in my medical books, is my only illness to stop getting the better of me.

Now I am saying bye bye, also to my beloved grandchildren. It is their time on the planet now and that of all youngsters. They have to carry the flame, get into their own, create the best lives they can create.

And Rebecca, I just love to see and listen to how she shall present that chapter from her new book. All in a day-s work, metaphysical people are busy people, writing, talking, listening, on the phone, washing the dishes, cleaning the house, DIGESTING all these vibes, assimilating and getting rid of the waste.
