“Every single fiber of truth and wisdom can be found in ourselves”

When I look back, it’s astounding to see how many times I looked for answers, love and truth outside of myself.

Cultish spiritual groups, hyped-up business coaches and guru-like boyfriends gave me the illusion of security and confidence.

Human Design changed that big time, but it didn’t happen overnight.

I met Human Design in 2017 and adored it.
I drank in the knowledge with insatiably big gulps.
Learning HD came easy to me, but living it was hard.

As someone with a defined emotional center, I started by allowing myself to be slow in a fast world.

As a Manifesting Generator, I started listening to my gut. I let go of some of the mental pushing, the ‘shoulds’ and my ideas about what a perfect life had to look like. It was hard. It was challenging to realize how much of my life was reigned by my mind  – even though I thought I was a fairly free being.

The deconditioning happened in layers, and one of the hardest places to decondition was in my business.

My social media feed was bursting with people who were ready to tell me how I should do my business, and many of those ideas had nestled themselves in my undefined Head.

Also, I unconsciously thought that business success could salvage my low self-worth. Oh la la, the pains of the undefined Heart…

But the tide has turned. Over the past 6 years of experimenting with my human design, almost all of my ideas about what a business (and marketing!) should look like have collapsed.

And the result is much more beautiful than my mind could have ever thought.

The pushing has gone. I’m relaxed in my business (and life)

I don’t have big plans or strategies anymore, neither do I have any to-do lists.

I’ve turned from a “helicopter business parent” into someone who is simply curious what will happen next, and what I will respond to.

It’s definitely scary for the mind, but oh so freeing!

What this looks like? 

⚘ I only appear on social media when there’s an organic movement to do so.

I don’t feel the need to hype myself – and my business – up anymore because I know that who I am is enough.

⚘ The projects I respond to are very different from what my mind had envisioned. And I’m actually enjoying the surprise : )

Because I’m deeply enjoying my business + life journey, there’s no attachment to the outcome. And to me, that’s the most beautiful place to be.
