Be gentle with others and yourself.

Cherish the ones you love the most and never use anyone just to vent.

Connect from heart to heart, from Soul to Soul and experience who you really are.

Smile to strangers.

Look into the eyes of others with your heart wide open. When you hug, do it with your whole Being.

Look with loving eyes.

Talk to people instead of about them.

Be positive or be silent.

Be generous with compliments and scant on criticism.

Be honest, yet choose your words carefully and with compassion.

Speak your own truth and allow others to have a truth of their own. It is combined truth that creates the world in which we live.

Judgements mirror a lack of inner peace. If you judge someone, say, “I’m sorry” (even to yourself), and send some love to that person (as well as yourself) to heal the pain.

All that is pure, is pure for everyone involved. So attune to your Soul and follow the guidance of that Divine Light — that inner GPS — within you. When we are attuned, we know what’s best for ourselves.

Love and let go of expectations – even if you aren’t loved “back”. You cannot negotiate love. Love simply because you love someone.

Open your heart to all creatures you encounter, no matter what their origin or species. Connect to All.

Let others walk at their own pace.

Focus on the things we have in common for the similarities connect us all. The differences only express each individual’s uniqueness.

Completely accept who you are and where you stand in life, but always leave room for improvement.

Be responsible and take care of your own problems, while helping others to solve theirs.

Be grateful for all you have, all you have had and all that will be.

Do your best and be content with the results. There’s no superlative to best, so no matter what the outcome is, there’s nothing more you can ask of yourself.

Do not try to keep your balance or avoid the things that might lead you to stumble. The more you practise finding your way back, the more you’ll learn to trust your ability to bounce back after a fall.

You can overcome whatever you encounter, because you’ve created it yourself on a Soul level.

Don’t fight the darkness for that will only make it grow. Just bring Light into it.

Thoughts create; so please expect miracles.

You are never alone. We’re all connected and there’s always help from above.

Inner peace is the key to world peace; if you want to change the world, start by solving your own issues.

Share your Inner Light and spread it throughout the world. Someone out there may need your spark to re-illuminate his.

Light is contagious. So is Love.

ANNEMIEK DOUW, MSc is a management coach, energetic therapist, light-worker, medium, trainer and author of the book 21 Layers of the Soul: Healing the Karmic Ties with Friends, Lovers, Family and Enemies, which was launched in December 2013. You can find out more about the book and receive a free downloadable poster of the 21 aura layers when you buy your copy at

Coming from an unlikely background in engineering, Annemiek has always been interested in how people think and grow at a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Her quest first took her into the exploration of bioenergetics and other alternative therapies, and eventually leading her to complete a 3-year course at the Natural Medicine Academy South-Netherlands to become a paranormal therapist. In 1998 she dedicated herself to this work full-time. She later fell ill herself for an extended period of time, which allowed her to gain first-hand insight into the human experience of illness, and to learn how the soul is an internal compass that continuously guides.

Probing more deeply into how this compass works, Annemiek discovered 40 layers of the aura that influence our ability to grow and to heal in our bodies, minds and relationships. This discovery became the foundation of her unique healing style, and today Annemiek helps clients heal at many levels, and teaches them how to read this compass for themselves.

Wanting to share this unprecedented work with a wider audience, she published the Dutch language book De ziel in het licht van haar hogere auralagen in 2011, which is now available in English under the title 21 Layers of the Soul: Healing the Karmic Ties with Friends, Lovers, Family and Enemies. In this book she describes the first 21 layers.  She hopes to publish the sequel 40 lagen van de ziel ontsluierd (2015) in English 40 Layers of the Soul revealed in 2020.

In 2019 she translated the information from the 40 Layers of the Soul into an instrument that helps Management Teams and other leaders make well-aligned choices on a Soul Level. This method is called The Common Senses®. It was rolled out in Dutch in September 2019. The English version will follow shortly.

  2. Wat bijzonder Annemiek. Het klopt helemaal wat je schrijft. Al jaren kom in met een bepaalde regelmaat bij je voor ondersteuning. Het is voor mij steeds weer een wonder hoe door jou oude vastzittende energieën geneutraliseerd en opgelost worden. Veel dank voor je altijd behulpzame zijn. Van harte wens ik je en heel veel mensen toe, dat ze door jou geholpen mogen worden om weer in hun eigen heelheid BRON terug mogen keren. Hartegroet Willeke Hendrikx

    And for all the readers who are doubting to buy Annemieks book: it is worth it! It is really complementary to all what is out there!

  5. The method Annemiek employs has proven life changing for me. In my private life: my family has had to face many challenges and was torn apart as a result. She cleared my 12th aura layer which impacts family karma and the most amazing transformations have been taking place during this process. My family is healing, at last. She helped my eldest son get back on track so that he has now enrolled in college and seems to be following his soul path (something which was unimaginable a year ago). I can say this, because he is happier, stronger and more self-assured after a few sessions with Annemiek and approaches challenges in a new way. My other son was in danger in South Africa. She helped me get him back, by knowing what to do at each given moment so that it felt like a natural process (right time, right place, each moment), but if I think about it rationally, the manner in which it succeeded was quite amazing and almost inexplicable. She has the innate gift to see/know whether you are following the life path you are meant to be on (the path in which you fulfill your life purpose) or not. And if not, her unique method, puts you back on track. Years before, in my career, I was on the wrong path in a job that I hated and was very unhappy in. After her guidance I naturally transitioned (I say this because it felt effortless. Even though, if I think about it rationally, it’s amazing how it happened) into a wonderful job in which I am free (and even encouraged) to do what I love: helping people uncover their talent. Through all these processes, two things remain apparent: Annemiek knows the true meaning of unconditional love and her work changes lives for the better.
