Since the moment I discovered the impact of my voice on others and myself,
I dreamt of a life of sharing my voice with the whole world.
Musical theatre came on my path and the picture I painted for myself brought me all over the world.
Literally all over the world, with cruiseships.
Caribbean, Asia, all parts of Europe, Russia. I've seen a lot ;)
I lived in London for about 4 years trying to get my musical career of the ground.
And I moved to Bali for 7 months to find myself when everything came crashing down.
I am so grateful for that period cause I would not have wanted to miss all those incredible journeys and people.
But up until 2 years ago I was still chasing after some kind of dream. A perfect picture I imagined for myself.
Having a desire isn't wrong, and chasing your dreams can bring you to the most amazing places. But I am re-membering now more and more that,
the more I let go of how my life should look like,
the more life surprises me with things I could have never imagined.
More than one being that crossed my path have said: 'what you're gonna do in this life, is something that doesn't exist yet'
Ofcourse I don't know if that's true, but it seems to happen right now.
All those things I thought were IT were only a direction to a new way that I could not have imagined with my brain. It came close cause if it doesn't exist, your mind will show you images of things that you do know.
And it's a very scary thing to just sit behind the wheel and start driving into a white canvas. But funny enough, the colours and pictures start to appear the moment I start doing things just because it feels good. Without wanting a certain outcome.
Trust me this took me a lot of years to realise so don't think it happened overnight.
So what do I do? It feels like a download that is still happening to be honest.
I've started coaching with the voice as a tool.
There was something about vocal coaching that intrigued me, but I knew I didn't want to become a vocal coach. I started 2 years ago with vocal coaching and soon I realised that I had something else to offer then teaching people how to sing.
It wasn't about the voice. Something happend every time someone came for a class. On a much deeper level.
I know that I am here to support others on their journey of transformation and inner work. That's why I call it The Inner Voice Coaching.
Our voice comes natural to us. Not everyone is a singer, thank god, other wise there wouldn't be enough jobs in the artistic world ;)
But we all are design with a voice that can produce song.
Your voice is the closest thing (in my experience) to your soul. It's like there is nothing in between. It's like your voice is the sound of your soul.
So imagine for a second what happens when, as a young child, someone says to you; ulgh stop singing! you can not sing!
It's like someone telling you; your soul shouldn't be exposed like that!
On so many levels you feel like it's not okay for you to express yourself.
But when you do anything to express yourself from your heart, from your soul it's a very vulnerable but beautiful thing. It actually shouldn't be a vulnerable thing. It's the most natural thing in the world, to live from your heart. But many years of oppression have made us believe differently.
So how are we gonna wake eachother up from this dimension that no longer works. In order for all of us to evolve into the next phase of human consciousness, we need people that support that awakening.
I don't want to label what I do as a certain profession, cause it's a never ending expansion, but I feel I am here to do just that.
Wake up the world with my voice.
So just like any other tool (meditation, yoga, tantra, dancing, plant medicine, books, therapy) the voice can be used as a guide to remember who/what you truly are.
With one on one sessions, workshops, Kirtan, sound healing, mantra circles and concerts with my own music.
My first acoustic album will be released in August 2020!
