Episode #8: Ana Tabain: Daring to be different led me to living my life of purpose.

Ana Tabain always knew she wanted to be a teacher.  She dared to move to a city on the other side of her home country, then to the UK, and to the Netherlands following her heart for a better way of living.  Against all evidence of having a life that most wanted, she and her partner constantly question the status quo.  Living life with purpose includes being daring and finding what works well for them in the time and place they are living.

“I’m not going to wait for things to manifest in my life.  I’m going to get them.”

Ana’s life is a marvel of adventure based on her willing to ask and daring to be different from what she was raised to be.  Listen to her amazing story of how she is continuously guided.

Episode #7: Sundae Schneider-Bean: Taking a LEAP without a net!

There is no place in Sundae’s life that she doesn’t follow her heart.  She truly lives by it and you will experience this when you listen to this podcast.  I have to admit there were so many good points she made in this interview that I had a difficult time writing a post for it.  Here are the highlights:

Sundae talks about how following your heart happens in the small moments not always in the big LEAP moments.  As Sundae calls it, it’s in the micro-moments.  When I asked her how she found her way to discovering these moments and tapping into her heart she tells a very open and honest story where she lost touch with her body.  This was her wake-up call to look within and do things like, self-care, ask for help, and being a good coach to herself.

 “I had to get a place of suffering before I discovered these strategies.”

She realized that the job she was in was going against her integrity.  She wasn’t directly impacted but she could see that this wasn’t in alignment with who she is.  She made the decision to leave and followed her heart to new opportunities.

It was at this time that she decided to follow a new career path that had no career opportunities in Switzerland for this field. But she went for it and later her dream job found her because of the very education she obtained!   AND BONUS she was also able to ask for what she needed so she could still be with her brand new baby.

“I said YES to my heart and allowed myself to trust that I would find a way.”

Later she tells this story about her Dad.  He said to her once, “Sundae, I really don’t know, if you are really stupid, really smart, or god-damn lucky.” Using her Dad’s logic, she submits…

“It is really a dumb idea.

  • To get a degree in something that does not exist
  • To marry guy from around the world.
  • To quit a lifelong career at the 2nd largest company in Switzerland to pursue a new career and become an entrepreneur. “

This is not to say any of this was easy for Sundae.  She reminds us that it is HARD EARNED for a reason.

Sundae says quite powerfully:

“One of the things that I am so passionate about is about living my life with purpose and with meaning not with what other people think I should do and what I could do.”

She gives a lovely example of how you get to this place of living a purposeful and meaningful life.  It is the difference between feeling pushed versus feeling pulled.  She used this lovely metaphor, “It feels like a cord coming from my heart into the world pulling me towards it.”  A quote she uses as a mantra to guide her: If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.

One thing is for sure, and as you can see in this post, Sundae is truly inspirational because she lives bravely, passionately and by her HEART allowing it to guide her way.

Episode #5: When intuition saved a life! with Elisabeth van den Berkmortel -Vrouwengeneeskunde

This is an interview with Elisabeth van den Berkmortel of Vrouwengeneeskunde, www.vrouwengeneeskunde.nl

Elisabeth knew she was pregnant but the tests and doctors said she wasn’t. Listen to how the journey to Elisabeth’s pregnancy and “keeping” that pregnancy shows how powerful it is to TRUST and FOLLOW your intuition.

More about Elisabeth

Elisabeth started her career as an in-house lawyer working for big financials, but could not find fulfillment in that area of work. After she became a mother of 3 she decided to follow her heart, and change her career completely.

She became a reiki master, brought HypnoBirthing to the Netherlands, became a doula, yoga teacher and also completed her studies as acupuncturist, orthomolecular therapist, hypnotherapist & Mercier massage therapist. She even studied midwifery for 2 years, but since she had no intention of becoming a midwife she decided not to pursue that study.

The connecting factor in all her follow-up studies is the health and welfare of women.

By combining her vast knowledge and skills with her strong intuition, she knows how to tune into her client and to treat multiple levels simultaneously. As a result, the self-restoring ability of the body is reactivated and the client gets awareness and guidance so that she can also make the desired changes in her daily life.

Episode #4: Guided towards a “chance” encounter with Nathasja Gootjes

I had the pleasure of interviewing my friend Nathasja Gootjes of Helderheid coaching, www.helderheid-coaching.nl. In our talk, she detailed out an event of guided intuition that when she got past her doubts and trusted her intuition it led her to a friend, a workshop, a new method she created and ultimately a business that aligns with her gift and the way she wanted to serve people.

Please come listen and find out what Nathasja has learned by listening and following her heart.

As mentioned in this episode, Nathasja has followed her heart and intuition by holding a women’s retreat this coming June!!  She has named this special retreat, the Sisterhood of LOVE 2018 retreat in the Netherlands! For those in the local area, this is an opportunity to experience Nathasja’s special method, workshops, connection and much more.

Guided the podcast #3: Interview with Saskia Baardman

Today I had the honor and privilege to interview Saskia Baardman of the I-Opener, www.i-opener.com. She is also now a teacher at Intuitieve Opleidingen in Utrecht. So, she knows her STUFF!

We met a few years ago at a networking event for This Woman’s Work (formerly WE Club Utrecht). We have been friends since that first event. In that time, I’ve come to know her gifts and talent for helping others with her intuitive readings. It was so wonderful to dive in further with her about how this journey unfolded into her career. She actually makes a distinction between intuition, following your heart and the third eye in the podcast. Grab a cup of tea, open up the podcast and listen to what Saskia has to share. If you like what you hear let us know. We sure had a GREAT time making this one!
