The #1 thing I learned about being in the flow

July 1, 2022

A very exciting part of my education, that became the gateway to discovering so many more of my abilities as an intuitive mentor, was when I trained to be a facilitator for brainstorming sessions. I learned a lot of skills and techniques that have served me well over the years. But most importantly, I learned how to po…

What does being triggered tell you?

June 15, 2022

A trigger tells you that something in you is being provoked. That whatever was said or happened, triggered a response in you that feels unpleasant (to say the least). Chances are your reaction to what happened is out of proportion. You are either very angry, hurt, frustrated, annoyed or sad. These emotions are …

I was dying inside

June 1, 2022

I did all the things that I thought were supposed to make me happy… but I wasn’t. I got the corporate job, the brand-new house, the handsome husband. I was working in corporate marketing and even though I enjoyed my job, I was exhausted and drained. Then I was offered an opportunity to run a local boutique I …

How do you get burned out?

May 25, 2022

You get burned out by doing a little too much, too often—for too long. Thinking you can manage. Because that’s how it happens. Nobody gets burned out on purpose. We suffer from burnout because we think we’re different. We think we are stronger or have more energy. Or we think we don’t have a choice. Bu…

The thing that changed everything when it came to my energy levels

May 20, 2022

For more than eight years I had vague complaints of fatigue. Complaints that preceded my burnout and never went quite away afterwards. From time to time I went to see a doctor and they would check my blood and other stats. Every single time they concluded that I was totally fine. Except I didn’t feel it. Until …

At first, I hated being highly sensitive

May 11, 2022

I’m a sensitive soul. But it took me until my late twenties to discover I’m a highly sensitive person. I used to feel weak because I had to say “no” to certain things. I was often drained and exhausted and I felt different. When I was on vacation or on a trip there would be those key moments where I said …

Is being a highly sensitive person bad?

May 9, 2022

I guess that depends on who you ask—and at which stage in their personal development ;) If you had asked me twenty years ago—I would have told you that being a highly sensitive person (HSP) is awful. That being a sensitive soul (as I prefer to call HSP’s) is exhausting and frustrating. That it limits what you …

You can stop pretending.

April 29, 2022

Last week one of the participants in my Carriers of Light Mastermind asked why she felt resistance to this new phase in her journey. The inspired message we received was so powerful that I felt I had to share it with you, too. Because I feel the world needs us to show up fully—not just with the parts that feel acc…

Your body speaks. Are you listening?

April 15, 2022

Our body speaks to us all the time. The question is: “Are you listening?” Our physical body tries to get our attention by sending us constant signals. These signals start off subtle: a feeling of discomfort, loss in energy or simply a sense that something is off. When we ignore these first warning signs, our …

What are the first signs of burnout?

March 15, 2022

I was suffering from burnout at the age of twenty-four. Looking back, it wasn’t a matter of if I would run into that brick wall, but when. My father-in-law had passed away a few months earlier and his loss had hit us all hard. Being the only in-law made me feel not just responsible for the well-being of my boyf…
