My 10 Year Challenge 2009/2019

2009/2019 ♥️ 

In 2009 I was one year into my fulltime coaching practice. During fall that year I got pregnant and @arnoldbalde got into a burnout. We were together for 2 years and after two years of mourning about my father and grandfather we found ourselves in another huge challenge. 

We took the challenge. It has been hard, but the unconditional love we feel for each other has gotten us through these years. However it’s almost unimaginable, but we did laugh a lot. We cried and laughed a lot. 

We have received two beautiful human beings in our lives. (2010 & 2016) We are surrounded by beautiful people. We are greatful. The spiritual and emotional growth continues… 

Now, from the perspective of unconditional love we have reached the highest of high. Letting go of all pain: sadness, anger and fear that was in between us. The path continues. We strive for a loving life in which we both are given the freedom to grow into the souls we are. 

I thank you @arnoldbalde for the woman I am today. From now onwards I ask for what I need to continue growing into the person I am.

Opening up for a love relationship

img_9153

Today I had a client in who shared: “My manager and many colleagues have noticed that I have changed drastically within a year. All good and positive. I am confident. I know what I want and I definitely know what I don’t want. Moreover, I communicate this.

Furthermore I am looking out for a new job in the same company. One with less work pressure and responsibility so I can focus on my studies. I am creating space for myself. I feel an abundance of freedom, space and happiness in myself. This also has to do with breaking up with friendships/ people who asked too much of me. Now I am focusing on the people who give me energy, who make me laugh.”

Yeah!! I am so happy for her. We have been working on balancing the male and female energy within her. All her decisions will help her to live more from her female energy. She came in with a personal love goal: opening up for a love relationship.

The sessions were focused on communicating bounderies, processing sadness, anger and fear rooted in the relationship with her parents and sister and work related issues. Now the time has finally come to focus on her initial personal goal ♥️

I am looking forward to work with her. Letting love in!

She destroys everything good

img_9172

Many, many heartwarming stories come my way. For instance this story about a young lady in her thirties who came in for the first time. Sharing with me that awful things keep happening to her.

And now her heart was fallen apart again, because she destroys everyting good. She wasn’t able to keep a good man. She was afraid and unconsciously she was pushing him away. From the moment he confronted her with her behaviour she woke up and regretted her closed of attitude.

She definitely liked him. They shared laughs, good conversations and much more. Why was she pushing him away? During this session lots came to the surface. There was a strong self-destructive mechanism within her system fueled by low self-esteem and self-value.

Even though she repeated that it was over with this man she opened herself for my feedback. What I perceived was his loving behaviour, it was a time-out, it wasn’t a strong “no-don’t-want-to-be-with-you-ever-again”. They were both in pain.

After the session she gave back to me that they had good conversations, that she felt it wasn’t over yet and that she shared my summary of the session and they talked about the content. Fantastic. I felt so proud of her. She turned around her “faith”.

A brand New Year. I’m excited!! I’m looking forward to feel connected whatever I do and where ever I go.

My life consists of guiding people to be the best version of themselves by coaching and rebirthing, parenting our kids together with @arnoldbalde and unwind and recharge myself for everyday life.

The unwinding and recharging part is done by journal writing, meditation, yoga, chakra healing, taiko, dance & sleep :))

I’ve put my pen to digital paper and created and sharpened my focus on the following:

💞 Creative goals

💞 Work/ life balance

💞 Workload: new clients p/m

What get’s you excited?

If I know what love is it is because of you

“This is the man I would do anything for: move to a deserted place, quit my job and start a new job and most of all express my love for him and don’t make him do anything he isn’t ready for.” ~ shared by a client of mine.

She asked for my guidance because she wants to embrace love relationships. She has been single for years. Every now and then she goes on a date via Tinder, but these first encounters are more tiring then uplifting to her. She wants to have a relationship with someone who can deal with his emotions, who asks about her life, who listens, who takes, even the heavier storms in life, lightly. Someone who has been positively shaped by his experiences. While she wanted all these she also had to acknowledge her own fears and they way she was holding back during these encounters. She wanted to move forward, show herself more, her real self.

She was definitely ready for a huge positive change. 

Our first meeting was a coaching session and during our second meeting I guided her through her first rebirthing session. At first she was sceptic. “How does this work? I feel happy and I am content with my working and social life. How will rebirthing sessions open me up for love relationships?”

Rebirthing sessions or conscious connected breathing sessions will help you process hidden fear, anger and sadness in the physical and energetic body in order to clear the mind from limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are fed by these destructive emotions. You will process and go through these emotions via movements of the body, showing emotions and letting your voice be heard. With every breathing session you will notice small (and bigger and bigger) changes in your body, mind and soul. The limiting beliefs and physical aches are being replaced by loving positive beliefs about yourself and the world.

After her first rebirthing session she enthusiastically told me that lots of men noticed her and gave her attention. Something within her had shifted and this was the first change she had experienced towards opening herself up for a love relationship. Fantastic!

And there was something about her which made me think of other clients I guide. Every time I have multiple experiences of people sharing the same thoughts, feelings and experiences I feel a strong urge to share it with you, dear reader.

This time I would like to describe a type of client who come to me for guidance:

  • Believing strongly in that everything is temporary which makes throwing away things easy and getting rid of old photos
  • Believing in that everything has a reason
  • Knowing that you can only love with all your heart receiving every person who is related to the man or woman you love with open arms
  • Strongwilled and strong opinions and views on life to live by
  • Thinking limits the whole spectrum of feeling and acting upon what you feel
  • Accepting and/or dealing with loved ones who have strong negative energy

Tell your story, share the love

20181124_163056

On the 23nd and 24th of November I participated in a beginners storytelling course by Michael and Terra of www.discstorytelling.com in The Hague. We had a blast!! We did lots of exercises to be able to tell the story we were working on. I believe many of the participants, including myself, surprised themselves by having had the storyteller in them unlocked. 

I met an interesting bunch of internationally orientated people. One guy from Slovenia who is working for the TU Delft where he is guiding students with their start-up ideas and pitches. He thought of using storytelling techniques to enrich the pitches. There was an Indonesian lady who works as a coach & spiritual healer who challenged herself to take a course in English. One lady from Australia with Spanish roots works as a filmer and photographer and wanted to get a boost to promote her work in talks with potential project partners. And so many more…

Their stories enriched my world. 

This year has been the year that I started to get out of the mommy bubble by taking courses. I went to Madrid two weekends in a row to participate in el curso Zen by Suzanne Powell which has definitely put me onto a higher level of consciousness and sharing love. And now I can include a very rich storytelling two-days which has fueled me with fun excercises to develop this skill more and more. 

I must say I feel energized and inspired by the developments I’ve been through. 

For me to take these steps was strongly related to my youngest who will turn three in a couple of months. He is starting to feel more independent and is taking into practise what he has learned under our close parenting views and presence. For him to feel safe and apart from me has been liberating to me. I am happy for him, for myself and for our family and friends. My partner and I have mentioned to each other many times that our boy ignites smiles in the world. He shouldn’t be only smiling to us, but to everyone on his path. Same goes of course for our daughter. 

Let’s do this. Focus on fun, fun, fun and sharing the love we feel. 

Lastly, I definitely recommend Michael and Terra of DISC international storytelling if you want to spicen up the presentation of strategy documents you’re working, sharing your stories related to the product or service you offer or simply because you feel the need to tell a good story amongst family, friends and colleagues. Go get your story out there! ♥️

The healer you have been looking for is your own courage

Whenever I guide sessions I witness so much emotional growth in people. I feel energized and excited to work on next steps in all I do and share on social media.

Let’s share our sensitivity, our vulnerability, because it’s a gift and our strength.

Today a client of mine thanked me for having written a piece on her emotional development. She saw it passing by on the facebook page high sensitivity and intuition. While she was reading it she was struck by recognition: it was about her development! And then the amazing thing happened. She felt empowered.

Shortly after having read the blog they had their neighbours over for a visit and she talked about her emotional growth and mentioned my name and work. She wouldn’t have done that normally as the introverted person she is, but she felt so happy and strong.

The next courageous thing she did was tell her mom about the blog. Her mom wanted to read it and while doing so my client was doing all kinds of stuff to calm her nerves. She was afraid for her mom’s reaction. Her mom was impressed and happy for her. What a relief! For years she has battled her fears, but now she finally surrendered and is working through the fears. My client was so happy with my blog, because for once she didn’t have to explain what she was going through.

She had also passed on the good news about her mental health to her general practitioner who once had to hold her in his arms, because she came over with a panic attack. The general practitioner asked for my name and work. How awesome is that!!

This is one of the aims I’m working on. I want to share my work with mental and physical practitioners working in health care. Slowly but steadily I’m working in growing my network in order to get everyone BREATHING.

And thanks to my lovely and very much appreciated clients I feel the flow of life, my mission and vision getting carried out in an effortless way. Yeah!
