When life gives you lemons, MAKE ORANGE JUICE!!!

The Short Story

There’s one thing in life I have always been sure about: I’m not going to make lemonade out of the lemons life threw at me. I was left an orphan and had to live by myself from the age of eleven. My father was killed by The FARC (a guerilla organization) in Colombia, my mother died from cancer, and my stepfather was an alcoholic. I’ve been beaten, abused, deceived, abandoned, burned out and as a result, I have CPTSD. I was determined to make something else for myself other than lemonade! I pursued a career that wasn’t in alignment with who I truly was.

Yes, i had everything I ever dreamed of, but my Soul was dying!

My life changed drastically once I stopped with what felt like an internal war between my spirituality and rationality. I stopped choosing between my rational side and my spiritual side and decided to embrace both. I became a ‘Sex-and-the-city Hippie’ and manifested finding and fulfilling my purpose. 

I started helping high-achieving souls understand and connect to their inner world in order to manifest their hearts’ true desires and live a purposeful life.

Long story short

When life gives you lemons, make orange juice!

There’s one thing in life I have always been sure about: I’m not going to make lemonade out of the lemons life threw at me.  I was left an orphan and had to live by myself from the age of eleven. A guerilla organization killed my father, my mother died from cancer, and my stepfather was an alcoholic. I’ve been beaten, abused, deceived, abandoned, burned out and as a result, I have CPTSD. 

These are not the lemons I want for my lemonade, so I was determined to make something better than lemonade. I created my ideal life! 

From Colombian farmer to….

I was born in Colombia in the mountains of Medellin. To get there, you would have to go by horse. My father was a farmer, and my mother was a city girl from Medellin. They fell deeply in love, and my mother decided to move from the city to the country to have a life together. They were living a happy and tranquil life until adversity struck them hard.   

My father was shot three times by the FARC; he died instantly. And I? I was only three months old at the time. As you might know, 30 years ago, the FARC was doing some gruesome activities.

MY FATHER WAS SHOT THREE TIMES BY THE FARC

Back then, if you didn’t cooperate,
you were an obstacle for them. My
family fled that area because they
feared that the FARC would come back for the rest of the family.

So our whole family left that village. My mother moved back to Medellin with a broken heart and her three kids (my brother, sister, and me).  I miss my father, but I feel like I know  him; although I can’t remember him I know he has always been with me. I also got my fabulous curls and skin color from him.

I can only imagine what it would have been like for my mother when she lost the love of her life in such a traumatic way. We can assume that she was heartbroken, but she reacted quickly and worked hard to give us a better world. She didn’t let this adversity drag her down. Soon after, she moved to Aruba in search of new opportunities.

Unfortunately, my mother passed away from cancer when I was eleven years old. I had to work every day after school because my whole family had abandoned me. They never called to wish me happy birthday or merry Christmas. My brother and sister had their own things to deal with. So I bounced around from house to house, never feeling like I belonged anywhere.

I HAD TO WORK EVERY DAY AFTER SCHOOL

My parallel life:
I was manifesting from a young age!

Despite my humble beginnings and all the bad things, I wanted to create a better life for myself. So I started to put in the hard work and was already unconsciously manifesting my ideal life by the age of 13.  I set a clear goal and worked on a positive mindset from a very young age. I felt strong and  determined. 

The high achiever in me did what she needed to do to survive, and it worked. 

I participated in pageants, theatre,
presented TV shows and was part of a
well-known dance group in Aruba.
I also manifested so many other amazing
things in those early days. How? The thought “it’s not possible” NEVER ever crossed my mind! I manifested it all!

When I was 23, I got my Bachelor in Social Work in the Netherlands and was a freelance educator working as a trainer and educator. After a while, I decided to return to school and do my Master’s degree in International Public Management and Policy.

In my first job for the Dutch government, I found out that this thing that I had worked so hard for, wasn’t ‘it’ either. 

Whatever I did, whatever box in life I ticked off – it didn’t feel right, I didn’t feel complete, I wasn’t truly happy.  Even though I had it all, my soul was dying! I realized I wanted to help people, and the way I was doing it at that moment wasn’t the right way for me.

EVEN THOUGH I HAD IT ALL, MY SOUL WAS DYING

Whatever I did, whatever box in life I ticked off – it didn’t feel right, I didn’t feel complete, I wasn’t truly happy.  Even though I had it all, my soul was dying! I realized I wanted to help people, and the way I was doing it at that moment wasn’t the right way for me.

EVEN THOUGH I HAD IT ALL, MY SOUL WAS DYING

Embrace the darkness,
and you will see the light

As you can read, through working with the Universe, I manifested finding and fulfilling my purpose. I think it’s the best thing I’ve manifested for myself: feeling what my true passion is and learning what my purpose is in this life.

I WANT TO HELP OTHER HIGH-ACHIEVING SOULS

I want to help other high-achieving souls understand and connect to their inner world in order to manifest their hearts’ true desires and live a purposeful life. 

One of the most important lessons in this Head to Heart journey is that, just like you never have to choose between being spiritual and rational, you never have to choose light over darkness. We should embrace both sides in ourselves. 

By learning alignment skills, you won’t get overwhelmed but will understand your inner world. You will have the knowledge and confidence to stay in alignment while embracing your darkness. The result? You will see your true light. 

I COMBINE SPIRITUALITY WITH RATIONALITY, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT A PART OF US WANTS TO UNDERSTAND HOW THINGS WORK

I COMBINE SPIRITUALITY WITH RATIONALITY, BECAUSE I KNOW THAT A PART OF US WANTS TO UNDERSTAND HOW THINGS WORK

I will teach you the tools you need to break yourself free!

My job is to give you the tools to see your own inner light! I will give you the tools I used for myself and all the things I learned along the way in my programs. You will learn to embody your true self, embrace both the light and the darkness within and enjoy your life in complete alignment.

 

I combine spirituality with rationality because I know that a part of us wants to understand how things work. I will be the co-pilot in your head-to-heart journey. I will show you how to return to a head-to-heart flow and from your Ego to your Soul so you can live as your authentic and aligned self. This way, you can be happy, and in a dull world, be the one who gives it color. You were meant to stand out!

 

AND IN A DULL WORLD, BE THE ONE WHO GIVES IT COLOR, YOU WERE MEANT TO STAND OUT!

ALL MY LIFE, I FELT LIKE I HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN MY SPIRITUAL SIDE AND THE POWERFUL WOMAN THAT I KNOW THAT I AM

ALL MY LIFE, I FELT LIKE I HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN MY SPIRITUAL SIDE AND THE POWERFUL WOMAN THAT I KNOW THAT I AM

Sex and the city Hippie?
“just another label”

All my life, I felt like I had to choose between my spiritual side and the powerful woman that I know that I am. I later realized that I don’t want to choose.  I learned that as humans, we need to learn to bring  harmony between our rational and our spiritual side. I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to make a choice! You don’t have to let one thing that you’re passionate about define who you are!

BY FINDING THIS HARMONY, I ALSO FOUND MY VOICE.

I didn’t want to choose, so instead of choosing, I became a ‘Sex-and-the-city Hippie’. On the one hand, I’m the woman that loves all things spiritual and manifests amazing experiences in her life, and lives in sync with the moon. 

On the other hand, I’m a fashionable and abundance loving woman that is not afraid to speak up. I learned to fully embrace both! By finding this harmony, I also found my voice.

Listen to your souls’ desires. The Universe put them there for a reason. No one’s path is the same, so there is no point in comparing yourself to another soul. It will only lead you astray from your path! Don’t be afraid to do things your way.

I see a world in which people act from their hearts instead of their heads.

I see a world where the highest achievers become the biggest manifestors. You can tick all the boxes in life, but you never forget to tick the most important ones: Happiness, Purpose and Fulfillment. I believe that when we are truly happy, we can create more impact in this world because we can finally do what we came here to do! 

I’m building an army of powerful souls that understand their inner world and are connected to their hearts, from which they learn to manifest a purposeful life full of exhilarating experiences.

HAPPINESS, PURPOSE AND FULFILMENT

The moment my work is finished and my purpose fulfilled, is not when I’ve answered all of your questions. It’s the moment my clients answer the questions they ask me, themselves. Before I can even try and answer, they say: I know what you’re going to tell me. I know the answer already. That’s when I know, my work here is done.

Everything I do I do it to restore balance in the world..

My mission is to assist, inspire and guide people in their journey from the OUTSIDE to the INSIDE, from their EGO to their SOUL and from their HEAD to their HEART. 

It is my mission to be your co-pilot wherever you are in your journey of self-discovery. In the journey to live and manifest, that comes from your heart and not your head. 

By finding our hearts, we can restore the balance of our feminine and masculine side. By restoring the balance within ourselves, we can manifest from our hearts and restore the balance in this patriarchal world. 

As I continue my personal development, I take my clients with me in that growth

As I continue my personal development, I take my clients with me in that growth

It was time to do what I came to this earth to do and become a coach..

At the age of seventeen, I enrolled on my very first personal development intense course. It was a summer school (which I manifested!) and was 10 day all paid expenses trip! I went to the Youth leadership summit of The United World Colleges. 

During this summit at the age of 17 I immediately knew: my purpose was to help other souls in their journey. 

DURING THIS SUMMIT AT THE AGE OF 17 I IMMEDIATELY KNEW: MY PURPOSE WAS TO HELP OTHER SOULS IN THEIR JOURNEY

During my Bachelor of Social Work, I did a minor to be a trainer and develop programs that catalyst change. When I graduated in 2013 I took the Neurolinguistic Programming course, which taught me how to reprogram my brain. I wasn’t ready to help people 1:1 yet because I knew I had many things I needed to heal first. I worked as a freelance trainer and a museum educator for sometime before becoming a government official. I worked for two years as a strategic policy advisor for the Dutch government. However, my soul died. 

I got a burn-out, and many of my traumas decided it was time for me to heal. When I started my own healing journey, I also embraced and finally got the courage to listen to my path and ultimately become a coach.

I enrolled in a European coaching certification and did a year program with Mastin Kipp to resurface all that information. As I continue my personal development, I take my clients with me in that growth. I could sum up all the techniques I use during my coaching sessions like; regression therapy, IFS, Voice dialogue, Hypnotherapy etc. But I don’t want to give you a list of my toolbox. I want you to learn how to feel if working with me is the right choice. Listen to your intuition because it’s never wrong. 

“The biggest transformation doesn’t only happen because of what I teach in my programs or trajectories. The biggest transformation happens the moment that you choose to commit to your own growth!”.
