THE WORK OF BYRON KATIE
WHO WOULD YOU BE WITHOUT YOUR STORY ?
The Work is an astonishing simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches us to identify and question thoughts that cause all suffering in the world. It’s a way to understand what is hurting you, and to address your problems with clarity.
Through this process anyone can trace unhappiness to its source and eliminate it there. Byron Katie not only shows us that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and to set ourselves free.
Stress is an alarm signal which tells you you have been attached to something that is not true for you. - Byron Katie

I'm a lover of what is. Not because I'm spiritual, but just because it hurts when I resist reality. - Byron Katie
Annemiek herself participated in the School (9 days) in Germany and different events in the Netherlands with Byron Katie herself. Later on she also staffed the School (9 days) in LA.
To her The Work is the most straight forward way to get to joy, love, freedom, clarity and peace.
She experienced, doing inquiry on her stressful thoughts, ALWAYS brings her back home; loving what is.
Getting to know The Work made a huge impact on her. Never in her live she experienced so much love (for all) joy and clarity. In this state of clarity life on earth seemed to be heaven.
She realized she still had (after so many other awareness trainings) believes, stressful thoughts, about her partner, her son, her ex partner and herself being the strong and helpful person to others.
How different does the world and the people around her look when she’s not a believer! The world is just a perception. We hear and see everything through the filter of our own story. To realize that nothing stressful she believes is true gives her the experience of pure joy and freedom.
The Work, to her, always shows who you are and it always brings you back on your personal path by giving you the answers that lies within you. The answers of love (instead of fear). The answers that shows you that the Universe is friendly. We all have the power to choose now to live in hell or in heaven; to live with stress or to LOVE WHAT IS.
Knowing to have this choice has been the most powerful and amazing gift of awareness to her.
You can only see what you belive, that is the only possibility. - Byron Katie
It is Annemiek’s passion to share this kind of awareness with as many people possible. She wants people to know about this easy excess to heaven so they have their own power to enjoy reality instead of suffering their own story.
The reality is so much friendlier than the story we tell. - Byron Katie
