I didn’t know I was highly sensitive until in my late twenties—and only because someone told me. I had no clue my lack of energy was connected to being sensitive. I’d had physical challenges for years so I had simply assumed my exhaustion and fatigue were due to various illnesses.
That same person told me I was highly intuitive as well.
Hint: these two often go hand-in-hand
Now at that time I didn’t see myself as someone who was especially perceptive. I was more rationally oriented and interested. I enjoyed getting my MBA.
But after that three-hour conversation a lot of things suddenly made sense, like how I got drained around a large number of people, or why I often felt weak and tired. I wanted to do so much more in life but I kept hitting a wall. There was something wrong with me, but I couldn’t get a grip on what that might be. All I knew was I just didn’t have enough energy.
Fast forward to today.
I run a successful international business. I’ve created a line of unique essential oil essences, enjoy giving workshops & retreats from NYC to Ireland and Italy and back home in The Netherlands, and I’m writing my first novel. I have that much energy.
I learned how to take care of myself. How to embrace my sensitivity and turn it from a curse into a gift. A gift that allows me to support clients with deep, intuitive insights.
That strategy is precisely what I now call SWEET POWER™: an all-new intuitive approach to personal and career development, growth, and self-care designed for those who have big things to do in this world, but who often feel drained by the demand required for showing up big.
