Chances to change

How can the ChancesToChange board game be of service to you?

We are listening to your unique experience and how you give meaning to what is happening. We are shapeshifting a field of fear into a flow of joy, ease and love.

These are special times. What is your current story? What is underneath the Coronavirus outbreak? What might really be happening? What is the essence of the Corona outbreak? Maybe it is the choice either to go for fear or to go for joy, ease and love; the choice to stay in survival mode or to go for new opportunities. 

Fear brings more fear and limitations on all levels of our being. Joy, ease and love create health and the possibility of new beginnings. 

What if we experience the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow where we can choose which forms with their related functions we create.

What will we cover in this article:

  • Experiencing the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow
  • The major players of the board game
  • What gives you strength and power in these times
  • The dance between our small self and our true self

Experiencing the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow

Flow, form and function is the movement in all of existence. If we are willing to consider the possibility that the Coronavirus outbreak is a flow of life force we open up to many possible choices with regard to the forms and functions that are able to unfold. We give our self the possibility to be responsive to what happens in our life and to live with ease and joy.

Yes there is the fear and yes there is the reality of people dying. It is important that we don’t underestimate the fear in the collective field, it is dense and sticky. It is invisible and contagious. Our small selves are very susceptible to fear. Each of us has his or her unique way in which our small self processes fear. Some of us experience panic attacks, some of us try to control, others stay calm and try to fix, analyse, rationalise. Some will become angry or blame. These are all survival modes related to, and triggered by, the field of fear.

There are a lot of ramifications caused by a collective field paralysed by fear or being governed by fear.  Fear has no power in itself, but when so many people, organisations and systems invest in fear, it becomes overwhelming. We are allowing fear to have authority over us, creating a loop of fear.

The only solution is to move our attention from fear-based choices towards our true self, aligning us to what really matters to us.

What is the underlying message of the outbreak, what is it bringing us? If we consider this outbreak as a flow of life force, we are able to see it as part of the intelligent design of the earth and all life on it and as part of our evolution. This is the very big picture and how does that look in our everyday life? What possibilities open up for us?

How can we with the ChancesToChange board game be of service?

The ChancesToChange board game creates a field where you are a long-awaited guest. We invite you to visit and play with us. We will completely welcome you.

Let’s start by looking at the major players in the board game and how they speak to you.

The major players in the board game

Let’s have a look at all the major players: 

Our body provides us, as a human being, with processes and symptoms related to our experience of what is happening to us and around us. This is absolutely true in this moment. Our hospitals and intensive care units are overloaded with patients needing assistance in their journey with the Coronavirus.

Stress has a negative effect on our immune system and fear is a huge stress factor. Joy on the other hand allows our body to access its inner healing capacity.

Our body is our most intimate partner in this adventure of being human. Our body partners with our soul. How do you listen to your body?

Our soul converts all our experiences into consciousness and is the bridge between us as spiritual beings and us as human beings. This bridge is our inner channel. Our soul has a script of those experiences it wants to have in this lifetime. You might consider the Coronavirus outbreak part of your soul’s script! 

Our experiences in life happen in the collective field, another major player.

The collective field is our playground and the memory of mankind. The imprints of fear in the field can cause us to endlessly repeat our old stories. At the same time we can experience the vastness and wholeness of the collective essence in the flow of the Coronavirus and allow this to support a unique new story for us as individuals and for the earth in general. How are you affected by this library of humanity?

The next player is our mind which arises through an interaction between the energy of the collective field, our body and our soul. In the board game there is no specific card for the mind and at the same time the mind is always present in the background as our mind processes all the information and energy that comes to us. Our mind is an amazing processor and if disconnected from our body and soul it can become quite a challenge to live our life to the fullest and cope with what is happening to us and around us. Especially in these times, we become a playball in the collective field, because our mind informs our personality. 

Our personality (= small self) is made up of aspects and facets which are constantly changing through experiencing. The Coronavirus outbreak and more precisely the fear-based choices affect the roles, titles and identifications our personality has gathered throughout our lives. The yellow card in the picture below shows us how our personality thinks, feels and acts.

How do you weave a colourful tapestry with these three facets in your life? Are thinking, feeling and doing supporting each other?

The game adds another major player to our life: silence. Silence is a place of rest and a moment of connection with our inner self. Each time we listen in the game we bring our awareness to our centre. We listen from within to source, our body and the collective field. The Coronavirus outbreak brings a great deal of silence back into our lives. 

We have described the six major players. This picture gives them all a place – our body (1), our soul and inner channel (2), our mind (3), the collective field (4), our personality (5) and silence (6) – and shows the interaction and ongoing exchange between all of them.

We return to the silence and we invite you to connect to your own inner being and gently ask yourself: “What gives me strength and power in these times?”

What gives you strength and power in these times? 

When we connect to our inner being, we automatically land in our inner channel. This channel grounds our soul into the earth and keeps our soul connected to the spiritual world to carry forth its purpose. This inner channel is also our intention. What is intention?

Intention is how we embrace the fullness of the offerings, tasks and challenges of our life as a human being. This also includes the challenges and offerings of the Coronavirus outbreak. Practically this unfolds through the fact that each facet of our personality has its own unique intention and there is a weaving between all these different intentions. Intention is how we bring the deepest truth of who and what we are and who and what we become into the world. 

Intention is an immeasurable and indescribable force that connects everything in the universe. The earth and all life on earth, every spiritual being and all our creations have an intention. How can you find your intention?

Each intention gives birth to a toroidal field (donut shaped) which holds our highest possible potential. As the picture shows, this toroidal field encompasses all the main players of this game: body, soul, collective field, mind, personality and silence. You can see visually how all that is related to your so-called human self – your body, mind, the collective field, your personality (=small self) – are held in this toroidal field. Your soul is the bridge between your human self and a much bigger part of the totality of your self.

The true self and the small self

The card of self refers to my true spiritual being and is the totality of who I am and who I become. My true self enables me to pioneer, to refresh and renew who I am in the world, what I do and how I think, feel and sense. It is my true self that can choose to turn my attention away from the field of fear. My personality is a smaller part of my true self and much more easily triggered through this field of fear. My personality is the part of me that will choose more easily for the role of victim.  


We always have the choice to align with our inner being and to move with grace and determination with whatever happens in our life or we can be governed by our small self’s programmes of fear and act upon those. It is a fine balance and all is welcome. We can have any experience we wish to have and afterwards return to what really matters to us.

We welcome all the major players in this board game which are also the major players in our day-to-day life. We know that our true self radiates light and love no matter what happens to us or around us; no matter which choices we make or do not make; regardless of where we bring our attention and regardless of how we are affected by the collective field or affect the collective field in turn. Our true self is always a continuously changing expression of our essence.

Please join us in our Awareness Marathon! We gently and lovingly share awareness and allow more perspectives and more choices.

An Awareness Marathon is where we invite each of us to breath and to connect with what really matters, with the truth of who we are and how we want to serve in this changing world! It is free and it is global!  It is joyful and it is contagious! We are ten facilitators ready to meet you in breakout rooms! Be welcome!

Aspects of life

Corona Virus a Threat or a Treat? Part One.

Shapeshift a prominent story through accessing the wisdom of your body and your inner knowing. Apply ChancesToChange as a way of living.

The Corona virus is our prominent story at this moment. It affects all of us locally and globally, it also affects our sourcing gathering here in the South of France with the ChancesToChange community. ChancesToChange is a wildly original board game and exists since December 2016. The board game serves as a doorway to wake up and live your life to the fullest. Since its creation we play everything with regard to our organisation into existence.

In this article we first have a look at the prominent story of the Corona virus. Afterwards we take  you on a journey while we play the ChancesToChange board game. You receive insights in what happens when a player throws a red dot and when a player throws a blue dot.

What is the prominent story of the Corona virus?

The prominent story of the Corona virus is that it is a threat for individuals, communities, countries and the economy. The information we daily receive is about the numbers of people affected in each country, about the speed of the spreading of the infection and how it affects us globally. The Corona virus does not seem to make any difference between good or bad, colour, race, beliefs, ethnicity, wealth.

Our collective answer is a combination of actions in an attempt to try treating the symptoms of the outbreak on an individual and global level.

We try to find a vaccin against the virus or find all kind of alternative procedures to strengthen our immune system.

We try to prevent the spreading of the virus by locking down villages and cities, even locking down countries.

We fight, we protect, we separate, we are afraid.

The most important ingredient of the prominent story is fear. Fear to become ill, fear to die. Fear that our economy will suffer, fear that are lives will be disrupted.

Fear unites us globally these days and is the reason we exclude and separate our self and others to a fascinating extend. 

Playing the ChancesToChange board game and meeting the corona virus

Whatever happens to and around us always affects the game. So does the story of the Corona virus.

This article shares some of the extraordinary insights and fascinating possibilities we receive as we play. We are all somewhere on the board and we play at this moment using both dice, a numbered one and a coloured one. The numbered one allows us to move on the board and the coloured one adds specific instructions depending on the colour we throw.

A player throws a red dot

The image shows you the instructions we follow.

We go into silence and we connect with our body. We sense and we listen. Our body is wise and so much more conscious than our everyday mind. There is a sharing circle were all the players share their insights to the player who threw the red dot.

One of the reflections is: “I see how the corona virus is a guest in my house, my house being my body.  What if I welcome this guest as in Rumi’s poem the Guest House with an open heart and mind?”

Another player shares: “I see DNA and something happening inside the DNA, as if there is a bridging, I see gates.”

A player throws a blue dot

In another turn one of us throws a blue dot and is invited to choose a blue card. The card “Unity consciousness” comes to her.

She reads the card and realises how everything in the universe, all life on earth and all of us are forms of consciousness. What if the corona virus is as an aspect of consciousness and part of unity consciousness?


Where are you? How does this land in you?

Already a lot to sit with!

Viruses have the ability, always have been the ability to exchange their genetic material with us humans. Sequences of viral DNA incorporated in our DNA during our evolution and serve our functions. So maybe what one of the players saw when listening to her body is actually true and is what is happening. What if the Corona virus outbreak serves our evolutionary purpose?

The card of unity consciousness reminds us of our inner knowing. A knowing that all forms of consciousness in the universe may coexist, also the Corona virus and are in turn influenced by the feelings, emotions, thoughts and actions of every human being.

What if our fear ignites more fear?

We will continue to play with the ChancesToChange board game.  In the second article of this series we listen to the collective field and meet the Corona virus there.

The collective field is a rich library of humanity and very intriguing, in this field we also find all the imprints of past pandemics. Do you want to be a play ball in the collective field or a co-creator of new stories?

The ChancesToChange board game offers you insight and new perspectives on whatever happens to and around you in your life.

I would love your insights and comments on this article.

Kind regards, Veerle

7 Lessons to Approach the Untamed Mysterious Force of Love

Love is not ruled by your will or what you do, maybe you often fear what love may say to you! Remember that “you” always have an intimate partner at your side!

love the untamed force

Love is like water; stored in clouds it has a huge overview, a perspective where it can see everything from a distance. When the cloud empties itself on the fields, the water deeply engages with nature. The water becomes a physical sensation, water can be a powerful cleansing and very nourishing, and it can be a destroying force. Water always somewhere somehow returns to its perspective high up in the sky.

Love is such an amazing fascinating creative force in our lives, are you ready to be surprised?

  1. Love is not the opposite of fear.
  2. Love seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.
  3. Love embraces contradictions and thrives through conflicts.
  4. Love is always different
  5. Love is a natural human need
  6. Love is an act of faith and there is no guarantee for exchange.
  7. Love is ongoing expressed from Nature towards us.

1. Love is not the opposite of fear.

Fear can cause us to withdraw from love and it is an error to say that we can choose between love and fear. Voices of fear block your capacity to trust and your ability to heal. We can dance with love and experience fear at the same time. Fear is part of your personality. Love is a cosmic creative force.

2. Love cannot be seduced

We often try to seduce love by submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears or smiles. You cannot seduce love. True love seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced. True love seduces through its magnificence and high vibration, you fall in love with love!

3. Love embraces contradictions and conflicts

Love grows with contradictions and thrives through conflicts. Love transforms and heals and can end up destroying you, because your personality experiences love as a destructive force.

4. Love is always different

Each meeting with love is different. You always start anew. The people who left you do not take the sun with them although that is often how it feels. With every person leaving you, comes a hidden hope for a new possibility to express love.

5. Love is a natural human need

You love because you need to love. Needs are normal and part of your human condition. You can play with the strategies you apply to get this need for love met.

6. Love is an act of faith

Opening the door for love is an act of faith and there is no guarantee for exchange.

You don’t know how long love will stay or if your love will be returned.

 7. Love is expressed through Nature

Nature is a manifestation of the Love of Source or God or whatever name you wish to give that which is bigger than you are. Nature continues to love you, no matter how you treat Nature.





Love creates and destroys, cleanses and drowns you. Love is a word that only gets meaning when somebody arrives to give it meaning. Love is only a word until you let yourself be possessed by its untamed mysterious force.

The invitation is to keep your heart wide open. When you go home, you find out that someone has been waiting for you, looking for the same thing you were looking for and experiencing the same anxieties and longings.

The one who has been waiting for you is your physical body. This amazing fascinating partner accompanies you in your exquisite experience of life on Earth.

The most important fact is that your physical body is part of nature and by this loves you unconditionally, pure and with great force.


I received my inspiration for this article through reading a chapter in Paulo Coelho’s book Manuscript found in Accra.


You can read more of this exquisite relationship between you and your physical body in my book Becoming What is Changing: Exposition.
