Life Transitions

Life Transitions 6 April 2022 life transitions   I have been thinking a lot lately about life transitions. More specifically about navigating through life transitions. Those times in your life where your foundation is swept away. The major upheavals in life, where everything feels uncertain and change and uncertainty are the only constants in your daily life.  Life transitions like a new job, stepping into a serious relationship, being confronted with death, divorce or break up or a move to […]

The Pains and Powers of baby loss

The Pains and Powers of baby loss 30 November 2021 the pains and powers of baby loss   When I was asked to write something for the fertility clinic in Cape Town about losing our baby Jade I felt an instant yes, and also an insecurity and vulnerability rising up. The journey of healing through stillbirth, as I like to call the journey, is not an easy one, and there are so many layers, so where do I start? The […]

Cherish Stone

Cherish Stone 13 October 2021 A bronze Cherish Stone with Jade’s ashes I feel so lucky to have met so many amazing women in my life. I am going to be honest, it took a while to open myself fully up to intimate relationships with women. I have had my struggles and somehow I often just thought friendships with boys/men were easier. I guess because they seem less complicated and in my experience had less expectations ;). I know now […]

Why not me?

Why not me? 12 October 2021 Why not me? One of the articles I came across that gave me some great insights was one written by Lucy Hone on resilient grieving. She basically says that if you are alive you will probably have to deal with some tough times in your life. Tragedy and sorrow will happen.  She wanted to be an active participant in her grieving process, and with all the tools and research she knew, find her way. […]

I allow myself to be held

I allow myself to be held 10 October 2021 Allowing myself to be held In these four months I haven’t read a lot about grieving, mainly because I feel and I have felt that it takes me away from my own experience. Every now and then I came across some inspiring articles or posts that somehow have a different and inspiring view. The same with people. It has been so refreshing to for example meet our new GP that just […]

Expanding Awareness

Normally I am not so much into weeks and days like this, because there are so many that I just can’t keep up. Somehow this one feels different at this moment. I feel that I would like to write something every day, something I want to share on my journey of losing my baby. I had something in mind to write about, but like everything else […]

A deep surrender into life

A deep surrender into life 22 September 2021 And here I am.  Dave and I call it the 3rd phase of our healing through stillbirth journey. Back in Cape Town after an important and long time in the Netherlands. Back to my roots. To the safety of my roots, and the healing of being in that safe womb-like space of my parents. The soil where I was born and raised. My home land.   Whilst writing this newsletter I am […]

An unexpected awakening

An unexpected awakening 5 August 2021 An unexpected awakening from one of my clients, Mirjam Leslie, who took part in my Free your Feminine 7-week program: What my daughter already knows… …and I hope she does NOT unlearn as she matures. Not often do we tend to take the advice from a 5-year-old. Quite the contrary in fact. But there’s an innate wisdom in my daughter. Full disclosure: she’s not exceptionally bright or intellectually gifted. But when I look at […]

Feminine Embodiment

Feminine Embodiment 7 June 2021 Empowered Feminine Embodiment  Female or Feminine embodiment. You might have come across this term before. It depicts the very essence of the work I do: Guiding courageous women to embody their Feminine. But what does it REALLY mean and why is it important? Simply put it means that body and mind are connected. Intertwined.   Without a body, there is no sense of self.  The Oxford English Dictionary defines embodiment as “a tangible or visible form […]

Feminine Economy

Feminine Economy 9 May 2021 Dreaming of a Feminine Economy One of my biggest questions in my journey of choosing to become a mom or not has been, can I still run my own business and live my passion, and be a magical mom who is present with her children and family? Without too much stress and pressure (and preferably no stress and pressure :)) In the end my choice was merely made by this soul who really wanted to […]

Birthed into Motherhood

Birthed into Motherhood 27 April 2021 Being birthed into motherhood, a rite of passage Last week was a lot of ‘last times’, when it came to my work. I finished  my last coaching package, and with that a beautiful journey with a woman into realizing that all she had been searching for outside of her, is actually inside: “It was me I was looking for”. The last sister circle for a while, with such a nourishing soft sensual energy. The […]

The Cyclic Feminine

The Cyclic Feminine 12 April 2021 Today I would love to share a bit more on honoring the cyclic Feminine. Since I am heading more and more towards giving birth to our beautiful and sacred son, and seeing and feeling the current state of our world, the Feminine and her cyclic nature is asking for attention.  She Blooms.  She was born about 6 years ago. Out of an extensive and in-depth research for my thesis on young adolescents and sexuality […]
