My name is pronouned (and means) ‘Rose’. I’m Dutch. I was a very sensitive and artistic child. I knew what was up emotionally when people weren’t in tune with themselves, but my sensitivity didn’t get the space it needed. As an empath Crystal child, I developed chronic eczema. I turned inward. I became a silent child and found my refuge in reading fantasy books, drawing and writing. This is what my soul could express itself in. After high school I tried out different directions that ultimately fit together like pieces of a puzzle.
Firstly I tried Psychobiology at the university to understand the relationship between mind and body, but the academical world didn’t give me answers about the spiritual side of life. I couldn’t function in a regular study and found out I was highly sensitive. Quickly I moved in back home. Many puzzle pieces fell into place! And I took my first steps in a direction that really made me passionate: self expression. I went to art academy to develop my creative side. But I got stuck with recurring eczema at my throat. My body let me know that I wasn’t really expressing myself. This was mindboggling to me, because I thought this was the perfect place to express myself. But I wasn’t aware of how much I had learnt to bulldoze my sensitivity. I had suppressed my emotions deeply (especially my anger) and tried to be extraverted, image driven and living in the fast lane. I couldn’t protect my vulnerability and didn’t have a brake on what to express or not. I had turned into my own worst enemy.
I completely exhausted myself and quit art school in 2012, the year of collective awakening. I ran into the Human Design system and learnt I shouldn’t manifest so hard, but allow life to come to me instead. Time for a big change. I started traveling to ecovillages. In the quiet, pure lifestyle in connection to nature I found paradise. Soon this started showing cracks, because when I wanted to express myself it wasn’t freely allowed and my health issues were still present. I arrived at no mans’ land and had to find my paradise within.
This was my dark night of the soul. I decided to pursue the spiritual path and started an almost 5-year long schooling to become a Healer. It reminded me of my spiritual gifts, healed the trauma around my sensitivity and awakened me to being the healer that I had always been. I wanted to cure the cause of my eczema now. I had understood that I first had to heal myself to truly express myself.
For four years, I mapped out my energy system and grounded and opened more and more. I found the answers that I had wanted to find in my study Psychobiology in the world of alternative healing. For the first time, I set real boundaries, like eating vegan and gluten free at family dinners (causing some resistance), ending friendships from the past where I wasn’t myself, find a balance between my inner world and outside stimulation, making time for meditation and gathering inspiration etc.
I healed the loneliness of my sensitivity by connecting to like-minded people. I started hosting spiritual gatherings and led guided meditations in groups of other young highly sensitives. My symptoms healed, now that I no longer antagonized myself, but chose the things that felt good. I started creating again, in a way I hadn’t dared to before in art school: with spiritual dimensions! I could express myself online. I found out I was a Crystal Child: deeply sensitive and creative, with a natural gift for healing and channeling. I tapped into this by opening an Instagram account for channeling, light language, photos of my healing altars, deep articles and my own illustrations and paintings where I showed energy. I started my business as a Healer and chose an introverted, pure lifestyle connected to nature and lots of time to create and recharge. Eventually my physical symptoms dissapeared. They were there to show me the right direction: living naturally, healing and creativity.
I deeply desire to share this acceptance of sensitivity with my healing creations, also through the darker phases of your life. I love connecting sensitives to their own inner guidance system and intuition that has often been buried beneath layers of judgment. With my insight in the human energy system I want to help other deep souls to reopen their hearts. I have found out that the sensitivity I was so ashamed of, is in fact my biggest gift!
My method of healing is practical, nuanced and sensitive. It’s based on my own experiences as an empath, my incredible base of schooling as an intuitive at Mens & Intuitie and lots of hours of selfstudy. Clients often say about me that I have a quiet but powerful presence.
