Welcome to my home, House of Joy, built with New Energy (Energy and Consciousness), where I tell stories and talk to you, because it is my passion to inspire you on your path of self-discovery, self-reflection and transformation. It is the place where I introduce to you The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes and other stories. Get comfortable!


On November 14, 2023, in a one-on-one session with Sarah and Kuthumi, Sarah said: 'Kuthumi said: “she is writing a book, let us support that.” He is really excited about this.' A little later: 'Kuthumi says, “sit down and get your books out, and everything starts flowing again.”

I stopped lazing around and looking for distractions and got back to work.


On November 30, after 16 years of writing, I had no choice but to conclude that everything that wanted to be written had been written.


The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes is completed!


On to the next phase! ​




A story only comes to life if there are readers. Your presence and your attention are very important! ​


To bring The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes into the world, financial resources are needed and that means that there must be a CROWDFUNDING campaign. 


Whoa! What is The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes actually about?

It is a report in the form of a memoir and tells about a changing life in a rapidly changing world. Life questions such as: Who am I? What is the meaning of my life? Where did I come from and is there anything after death? If so, what then? These types of questions are answered in The Story. It also tells about love, relationships, children, illness, work, and money. When one by one past lifetimes pass by, they add their story and their wisdom.


All this in an unusual story. Pleasant to read, fascinating, light-heartedly written with humor, informative, and inspiring according to readers of the previously published parts of this story (The Return of the Healers, Taming the Elephant, The Coming of the Dragon) which are all taken out of publication.


Twee covers. Meer

Heb je een idee, laat het weten!




If you are awakened, started the journey of self-discovery and are wondering what on earth you've gotten yourself into, The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes can help you immensely.


How? First of all, it is a source of inspiration and information. It will also occasionally put a smile on your face and make you cry out in recognition, after which you will breathe a sigh of relief because you are not crazy and not alone. ​


On this page you will find reviews and two old videos in which I was interviewed. Most of it is in Dutch. Except from this short review:

I want to start by thanking you for sharing your story and your ideas with us- this is a lovely submission set against a fascinating spiritual backdrop. Eva is a great heroine, and you combine the spiritual elements with an engrossing narrative with skill.

Together with about thirty people I participate in a medicine ceremony somewhere in the middle of nowhere in England. Everyone has settled comfortably on sleeping mats with a sleeping bag and the necessary pillows. We have just taken our first glass of medicine and the musicians have started playing, soft sounds begin to fill the room. I look around at all those people who, like me, are trying to understand more about themselves and life, who want to break free from conditioning that does not serve them, to break out of the much too narrow straitjacket. This is not the first time I have participated and I know that the medicine can be brutally honest...



My name is Aowa Joy, previously known as Joy Ligteringen. You can call me Joy. You can get to know me best by reading The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes.

To tell you something in advance: as a child I already had the feeling that something was wrong, my inner world was nothing like what I saw in the outside world. I didn't fit into this thing called life. Because I wanted to participate in normal life, I tried for a long time to make myself fit. Ultimately, that led to two divorces and two burnouts. While I was still going on, my soul intervened and a car crashed into mine, causing a radical change of course. That change landed me on The Road, a road that looked more like an endless mountain landscape than a beaten path, more like a wild ocean where there was no hold on anything, I had to make do and got used to it. A magical period followed where I would occasionally set up camp for a while because I wanted a break and enjoy where I was.

At a certain point I reached realization, also called enlightenment, which also turned out not to be an end point, but the first step towards becoming one of the Magi.

I did report on all this in The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes. A story that I have written as light-heartedly as possible, with the necessary humor and self-mockery, and filled with information that can help you on your path of self-discovery.


A crowdfunding campaign will soon start to cover the costs of bringing The Story of a Thousand Lifetimes into the world
