How water increases your productivity and memory

July 18, 2022

We're having a few extremely hot days here in The Netherlands (and in many other places as well) so that reminded me of some research I quoted in my book Radiant. You probably know staying hydrated is important, but did you know this: "A mere 2 percent drop in body water can trigger fuzzy, short term-memory trouble…

How I finally became whole

July 13, 2022

Coming out of the spiritual closet allowed me to let all of myself be present. For most of my life I had only focused on my rational side. That’s how I was successful in life—I have a good brain and I’m very practical. Then I opened what felt like this door to the entire right side of the building that was …

Coming out of the spiritual closet

July 6, 2022

Once I learned I was more intuitive and sensitive than I thought, I dove into learning all about my sensitivity and intuition. I went to various workshops to educate myself. One of those was a combination of the creative work and the more intuitive work I was moving towards. It was at the Creative Problem Solving In…

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

We've all been there, I know I have. Something happens and it triggers an (often emotional) response within you. It's easy to blame the person doing the thing that triggered you for how you're feeling. But the truth is that their action (or lack thereof) only pushed an already existing button. So what does it mea…

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 …
