Can a kiss from Mother Nature make us feel immortal? One day you will kiss someone you can't breathe without and find out that breath is of little consequence.
It’s hard to overstate how intense it feels to be kissed after so many years in a loveless relationship.......When you have a great kiss it is like an ACLS algorithm that uses paddle shocks. Sometimes they bring us back to life after our heart has stopped. There was a part of me I assumed was dead and suddenly there it was, alive and kicking. Going outside and being kissed by the AM light awoken me to what I was missing. With a kiss, she was oxygen and I was dying to breathe.
Marriage is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and a dollar for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer and held out for the dollar by connecting with nature once again

Up for learning more about the science of (sun)light?Are you awake yet?

The cure is in nature! 42% of SUNLIGHT is a RED light. RED LIGHT = LLLT or PBM.
There are so many truth bombs in this article, so many gold nuggets...Rick wanted to break it down for the lazy people who don't like to read real data:
Do you need to wear sunscreen? NOPE. Not if you spend enough time exposing your skin to the sun's rays in the early AM and late afternoon before sundown.
Because UV rays are low during that time, but IR (Infrared) light is strong during those times of the day DIURNALLY.
Why does that matter?
Read this paper in its entirety and be ready for your jaw to drop several times. IR light is beneficial to us in many ways. Aside from powering our mitochondria to produce more ATP, it also prepares our skin for the coming UV radiation around solar noon. IR light IS THE SUNSCREEN WE NEED to protect us from the deleterious effects of UV radiation.
In the late afternoon, IR light also acts to help repair damage to skin that has been overexposed to UV rays at solar noon.
In order to understand the significance of this, you have to think about how humans evolved. We ate the whole animal, not just the muscle meat. And we spent most of our days outdoors in the sun, hunting-gathering, or playing. As a result of our natural way of life, we were protected from UV rays, because we spent hours outside in the morning and in the evening, which prepared our skin for UV exposure and then helped it repair.
The takeaway? If you are going to the beach this summer, get there EARLY, stay LATE, and make sure your skin is exposed to lots of early mornings and late afternoon sunshine! During solar noon, get enough sun so that your skin gets flush but does not burn. Then wear clothing and hats to block the sun's rays until late afternoon and then...get naked again! The more exposure you give your skin to early morning sunlight, the more resilient it will be to the UV rays midday. ;).
"Yet, it has been shown that at realistic irradiances/doses, IR-A radiation has beneficial effects on collagen metabolism and upcoming UVR damage. Similar to PBM parameters, daily IR-A sun exposure delivers a much lower irradiance and fluence (dose) than powerful artificial sources (760-1450 nm).
One could, therefore, assume that early morning “sun salutation” (Surya Namaskar) and late afternoon procrastination on the beach are actually natural PBM treatments to prevent and repair, respectively. Consequently, if your shadow is taller than you are (in the early morning and late afternoon) you're taking advantage of the beneficial effects of IR-A while avoiding peak (Zenithal) harmful UVR [60, 61]. Ultimately, it is another way of being sun smart." www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4745411/

Change Happens when we Connect

Through science, community and consciousness, we can make a critical shift on this planet – one that empowers us to create a harmonious, coherent relationship with the natural world, with our inner selves, and with each other. One of the things that has always...

Do you have the courage to be real?

We live in a world that lets us believe that we’re somebody else. I don’t say that there’s something wrong with this world – we have however, collectively bought into concepts and beliefs that do not reflect the truth of who we really are. So we go through life...

True Transformation happens when you Feel the Truth

I see the shoulders of the woman in the middle of the circle drop. Resistance visibly leaves her body, and tears roll down her face. It’s so beautiful to watch, that it makes me feel humble to even witness this. If you don’t have an idea what is going on here, you...

Human by Design – Interview with Gregg Braden

Gregg Braden is a five-time New York Times best-selling author, and is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science, spirituality and human potential! A while ago, I met with Gregg and we spoke for about 45 minutes, about his latest book "Human by Design"...


My name is Dirk Terpstra. I am an Intuitive Speaker – Inspirator – Coach and HeartMath® Certified Trainer, and my passion (and mission) is to inspire you to become more deeply connected to who you truly are so that you can become the most beautiful version of yourself. Isn’t that an incredible gift that you can offer yourself and those around you?

We are part of a society that teaches us the principle of ’cause and effect’ so well that most people have learned to mainly react to the circumstances in their life, while everyone has the opportunity and the capacity to create their own, amazing and more fulfilling life – just by being who you truly are. In quantum physics this is called ‘causing an effect’.

Personally, I believe that the secret lies in hitting the brakes, really slowing down and learning to understand ourselves better. You can only be at peace, feel fulfilled and be valuable to others, when you are honest with yourself and start closing the gap between who you appear to be and who you really are. You will then discover that you are beautiful and that all the answers already lie inside of you.


As a HeartMath® Certified Trainer, I help individuals and organizations connect with the heart – who we truly are – which enables them to live healthier, more productive, happier and more fulfilling lives while building a brighter future. Simple, yet powerful tools developed by the Institute of HeartMath® enable us to gain more coherence and resiliency – on the go! – in your daily life. More information about the trainings here.
Since 1991, the Institute of HeartMath® has been conducting scientific research into the effects of the electromagnetic heart field on the brain and body. Their research has found that a ‘coherent’ heart rhythm has many benefits for the body and mind, including more energy, ease, ability to think more clearly, and increased communication skills.
As a result, the Institute developed a set of tools and techniques clinically proven to create coherence, ease, and inner balance and measurably reduce stress hormones such as cortisol. The more you practice them, the greater the cumulative effect.

I apply this expertise in my private trainings and public events, but I also work as a HeartMath® specialist for the Operational Stress Recovery Program in the Okanagan Valley. This program is endorsed by the Canadian Veterans Advocacy.


Through my training The Neurobiology of Trauma with Bessel van der Kolk MD, I learned applying the latest strategies to speed healing and I help reduce symptoms for even the most traumatized clients. Bessel van der Kolk is a highly-respected neuroscientist and Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He is also the Medical Director of the Trauma Center.


In 2018, I initiated coherencehotspot.com – a global platform to help create a higher level of consciousness in humans through building more coherent communities.

We apply the science based tools and techniques to create a coherent, social environment – There’s scientific evidence that heart-based human connections, will lead to intuitive solutions for global challenges and transformation of our world and our consciousness. Our global platform is endorsed and supported by HeartMath®.

Today, after attending the ‘Coherence of the Heart’ retreat with Dirk Terpstra, I feel very grateful because I was able to consciously create coherence in my heart for the first time. It was very emotional. The fear disappeared completely and an incredible strength emerged.

This feeling has now become a memory, and I know I can access it whenever I choose to. Communication with my family has improved, but also in interpersonal relationships in general. I am communicating from another place, more connected to my heart – It’s a wonderful gift! I know I have to keep practicing the heart coherence so that it becomes my natural way of being and acting. A close hug from the heart to you!

Secret to Life

I believe that the secret to life lies in hitting the brakes, really slowing down and learning to understand ourselves better. You can only be at peace and feel fulfilled, when you are honest with yourself and start closing the gap between who you appear to be and who you really are. You will then discover that you are beautiful.
