Week 16: True Health

Although ‘True Health’ officially is not one of my PPNs, health IS a big theme in my life and it runs through my whole DMP for several reasons.

One of them, obviously is that without it, I would not be able to perform as an artist the way I want to. I need my body for my creative expression. And I need it to perform amazingly, on several levels.

And being challenged in that area for a while was a major reason for me to enter the MasterKey program.

Another reason is that, independently of that (well, it’s not, really, but I mean even if I would not need my body to be able to perform at the level that I want it to), I have always been fascinated in the for me obvious link between the psyche and the body and the illnesses that the latter mirrors, and have therefor been interested for the biggest part of my life in what one can do to be, stay, or become healthy (yes, you could say that in a way it is kind of an obsession.)

And especially last week, when getting deeper into my issue about ‘gentleness towards myself’, I started to notice the link between the inner world and the body even stronger. Finally…. Or actually, I FINALLY found the courage to APPLY, to the core. To really take care of myself.

Although I knew and felt and observed already before that the true source of health is our mind, strangely enough I did not really-really-REALLY get to the bottom of this knowledge, and in my impatience and eagerness to get results (and lack of self-confidence) slipped away from my innate wisdom about this theme and treated my body as ‘body’, as ‘something else than me’ — ‘me’ being my mind, or my soul.

So I went at it — getting healthy — from the outside, mainly. Which helped, of course, but can only help to a certain extend, to a certain level, and always holds the ‘menace’ of re-lapsing in a less healthy state.

But last week as I was exercising my sweet gentle persistence, and also because thanks to the weeks of ‘sits’ and observations I was getting lots of insights on the energetic levels and about how my mind functions, and about the kind and quality of thoughts that I apparently entertain(ed) as well as more information about how and where (very old) emotions ‘settle’ at certain places in my body and how the body changes once those emotions get released, I started to not just realize how far I had gotten away from my original intuition in my ACTIONS, but also found the determination and strength to really go for that ‘True Health’ which actually originates in our Thoughts, and DO what I knew I had to do.

I also started to see a link with my ‘official’ PPNs (relief … 🙂 …): Autonomy and Recognition for Creative Expression:

my body is the creative expression of my thoughts and emotions.

I actually ‘saw’ that during a sit: at the moment my neck is an issue, and I really saw the vertebra being made of lots of ‘brabbling’ and tense thoughts, contradictions, fighting thoughts, and so on, all written on top of each other, annulling each-other partly, …. I realized that no building could be made solidly and ‘performing’ when built out of this kind of material…. and so on….

So, recognizing that gives me the key to change the parts that have started expressing scattered thoughts, and disruptive emotions.

And since that’s where it originates, that’s where we can restore it.

From the INSIDE outward.

So in my sit I started erasing what was written there, to make a clean ‘sheet’, ready to write some nice and good and functional stuff on it so to speak. And when I stumble on any tension or pain, I make it my task to figure out what thought or emotion this is the creative expression of. How? I tune into it, and let that part ‘speak’ to me, I let it express it’s story, I take the time to really listen. As you would do with a dear friend or child.

SymbolMy energy-work helps a lot with that, but also my music: while focussing on thinking and feeling ‘profound well-being’and visualising ‘my emblem'(which contains every single one of my desires in life, ‘My House in the Mountains’ 😉 )) I take my viola, and voice,separate or combined, and search for the specific note (frequency) that resonates into the tense area or pain, and I keep playing that until I feel that the spot ‘has been fed’, and things start to move inside, my body repositions itself, sometimes there is a real emotional release (sometimes with a bit of delay).

Digging deep. AND: manifesting a BIG chunk of my DMP: being a Healing Artist.
Beginning with myself.The rest will follow.

As the days go by, I feel that a much more intimate connection is installing between ‘me’ and ‘my body’, I start to really merge, with ‘me’. I start to feel almost constantly that ‘I am my essence’, I am incarnating and integrating structurally my full potential, gradually, by THINKING that potential consciously and FOCUSSING on it. From the inside. CREATING it from the inside outward, using the frequencies of my mind. And not, as I used to think, from somewhere outside trying to slip in that body that was supposed to be ‘mine’.

Another thing that ‘hit my mind’: I used to think in terms of ‘once this functions again as before/is healed, I will be able to do this and this as I used to.’ But wait a minute: I am not into this to GO BACK to what was before and functioning as I did before, because that was how I was when I was made out of those scattered thoughts….. kadzzziiinnnngggg……

No, of course, I will be different, so I — my body — will be functioning DIFFERENTLY, with another quality of gestures and so on….!!! oh how exciting!!! 🙂 🙂 …. yep, that’s FuturMe …. not the same as OldMe … 🙂 ….

I have some disciplining to do, KINDLY 😉 , feed my body only with good mental and emotional stuff that I choose consciously.

True Health is the effect, caused and created by the Profound WellBeing of a Truly Healthy Mind.

And: that way, I also work my way towards True Autonomy. Patiently. (pun intended 😉 ).

Week 17a: Well, organized? - hearzmasterkey

[…] this is mirrored in some slight mis-alignments in my body, so that links my search to the ‘true health-theme‘…)Not really completely false, but just enough to be annoyingly ‘out of […]

What an amazing person you are. So in tune with your body and mind. I am going to read your blog posts that I have missed. I can learn a lot. Thank You!


What a gentle, powerful and beautiful process you describe of connecting with your body and releasing tension and pain… issues in your tissues. I too am very interested in the powerful healing effects of music and sound… and hey it was great to hear you on this week’s Webinar. Sounds like you are powering sista… wonderful… 🙂

    Dominica Eyckmans

    issues in my tissues, hey that’s really well found 🙂 🙂
    and ah, my ‘appearance in the webby’ well that was VERY unexpected, and it was even more unexpected how that turned out, but truly a fantastic result of the work I have been doing, really, subby finding inexplicable ways to meet my needs….. waw. this WORKS 🙂

Eleanor Norton

Awesome insight. Very powerful post. Thank you for sharing

Dave Bernstrom

Truly a deep, thought inspiring creation, which is breathing truth of the connection to vitality, fully alive, from the inside out. A beautiful post my friend 🙂 thank you……..


Gorgeous. So cool to have such crisp connections and awareness’s to what’s linking within. Awesome!

Don Grantham

Bravo Dominica, I am starting to see myself where all the PPN’s overlap each other making us whole in the process. You helped make it even more clear to me with your most excellent post.

    Dominica Eyckmans

    oh thank you so much dear Don! it IS a fascinating process isn’t it… and glad to have been able to be of any help! 🙂


As Marj says, you express yourself beautifully. I know your blog will grow and thrive beyond Master Keys. You have so much wisdom to share. The only negative (not really a negative) in reading your blog posts, is that they require 2 or 3 reads to digest it all. You are an artist is many ways. THANKS

    Dominica Eyckmans

    oh hi dear friend!
    yes I somehow can imagine that it’s not always easy to ‘get’, in my mind of course it seems all evident, but I realize that that might not be the case for my readers…. the thing is my mind functions in ‘images-mode’, or ‘concepts’ actually, ‘the whole package’ of an ‘idea’ is there as kind of an entity. And to ‘unravel’ this into words and sentences while trying to keep ALL the information in those sentences, is quite tricky at times. And there is SO MUCH information also, since it is al so incredibly inter-linked…. and I DO want to write blogs that are still ‘short’ enough …. 😀 ….so I have to try to find and sometimes create expressions that are multi-layered enough…. and then of course every reader will ‘get’ the layers that are ‘suitable’ for him or her at the specific time of their life when they read it. But hey THANK YOU SO MUCH for actually reading them those 2 or 3 times!!!!!! I am extremely grateful for that!!!!!


    You write so honetsly about this. Thanks for sharing!

Charlotte Rønne Dam

Amazing ?

Marj Bernstrom

lovely, again, Dominica. You express yourself in a way I wish I could! I also felt the true relief that my PPN’s are true. “phew” <3 and congratulations on your new blogsite! Exciting!!

    Dominica Eyckmans

    thanks a lot Marj, yes those PPNs, they have kept me ‘going’ for quite a while,even if they were picked very quickly and are correct, but the True Health one, well, it’s a very important 3rd….. all good things come in threes 😀
    and my site is still ‘under construction’, I have to personalize all the plug ins and stuff, but one thing at a time. I’ll get there, that is not really priority number one right now 😉

Dominica Eyckmans

thank you so much for such a lovely reply, Jeanne!

Jeanne Dow

Your insight is so beautifully crafted as the artist you are. Thank you for allowing me to connect to your inner world and what you are discovering. You truly are reinventing yourself now, and now, and now!!!
