"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver
Enough confusion, frustration and half-living… it’s time to feel clear, inspired, focused and fulfilled! Find out what it’s like to come alive, to feel confident, powerful and energized. Learn how to move forward with clarity, confidence and joyful determination.
Do you feel as though something is missing, as though there must be more to life? Do you crave to bring your unique gifts and talents into the world in a way that has a positive impact, that feels deeply fulfilling and that feels like an expression of your unique, authentic self? Do you long to connect with others, to make a difference and to be appreciated through bringing your whole self and being into your career and workplace?
Imagine how it might feel to be connected and completely in tune with your heart, to feel authentic, alive, fulfilled and satisfied, doing work that you love, contributing to others in a way that feels meaningful and positive. Imagine looking forward to each day, jumping out of bed to get started on your work, feeling as though your whole being has come alive, that your unique gifts and talents are being expressed in the fullest way possible.
Imagine feeling your energy and inspiration levels soar and the sense of relief that comes when you finally find your calling. You feel balanced, inspired, appreciated for the unique being you are, fulfilled and free. You have space in your life for yourself and all the things that are important to you. You can enjoy simply being and revel in all the gifts in your life, rather than just constantly running. You’re connected with your true essence and soul; this is the true gift of life.
We need to listen to our hearts. Stop, slow down, take time out, get quiet and listen. The whispers are there in our heart, waiting to be heard. We need to ask ourselves, what do I love doing? What kind of person do I love being? Within those things we love doing lie hidden the treasures of our own specific, unique gifts that we have to bless the world.Katie De Jong
Coaching gives you clarity and insight into your passion, your dreams and aspirations. It can help you understand what drives you and motivates you, what your most treasured values are, and what you yearn to experience and manifest in this lifetime. It helps you access your own answers that lie within. It is a process of getting to know yourself deeply, so that you can create your most positive and happy life.
I’m ready to work with you if you know there’s a bigger calling for you, that there is a legacy you’re meant to leave, and it’s time to step into your life work. You might not know what that bigger calling is exactly, or you might have an idea about what it might be, but you don’t know how you could possibly make that transition from what you’ve built so far in life, into what you’re being called to do.
My role is to help you get very clear on how you can follow your heart, make the transition and thrive in a career centered around your unique gifts and talents. My work with you transforms you from feeling depleted, unfulfilled and overwhelmed, to feeling inspired, connected, authentic, alive, fulfilled, confident and powerful.
I hold a vision of a world in which each and every one of us is expressing and contributing our unique gifts in a way that feels deeply satisfying and rewarding, in service to something larger than ourselves. This focus on serving the greater good while bringing our full, authentic selves into our work creates a world in which everyone feels connected and valued and is expressing their full potential, while contributing to the flourishing of life.
I imagine a world in which education connects children to their hearts, to their own specific ‘natural genius’, to their inner wisdom and their soul gifts. Schools teach emotional mastery, heart connection and life skills, alongside the academic subjects for whom those are suited. Everyone is able to express their unique genius and creativity, building a thriving and highly functioning society that combines beauty, social artistry and sustainable technology. The different kinds of intelligence that each child has is nurtured, embraced and given the right conditions to flourish. We live in harmony with nature; the world is lusciously green and everything and everyone in it is vibrant and thriving.
I believe this vision is possible, if we all make the commitment to connect to our hearts to find our unique calling; that special calling that each of us is designed for, and get our unique gifts into the world in a way that feels true to our heart. As the late Wayne Dyer famously said ‘Don’t die with your music still inside you’. You have special, valuable gifts to contribute and the world needs your gifts now more than ever. My mission is to empower you to find and live your unique calling, while thriving financially and experiencing abundance in every facet of life. I want to help you replace struggle, confusion and frustration with clarity, focus, meaning, purpose, joy, abundance, ease and flow. You can make a meaningful difference in the world, while being true to your heart, doing work you love.
"When we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same." - Nelson Mandela
My life journey so far has led me to believe that positive change in the world starts with ourselves. When we feel balanced, peaceful, joyful, connected, nourished, fulfilled and inspired, our positive energy flows out to those around us like ripples in a pond, having a positive effect on everything and everyone around us. It’s possible to get to a place where we feel whole, balanced and happy when we commit to our own healing, personal growth and evolution. Through this commitment, we can move through our own inner barriers of limiting beliefs and self-sabotage and start to open up to a world of emotional harmony, endless possibility and abundance. Life begins to flourish in ways we can’t imagine. And when we feel fulfilled and balanced, we’re better able to care for the planet, the animal kingdom and all the people in our lives. Our joy, love, creativity and compassion becomes the medicine that heals the world.
I aspire to prioritise love, healing and health in my life and in the lives of others. I value truth, honesty and integrity. I am inspired by people who have the courage to be real and authentically themselves – with all their imperfections. I am inspired by those who keep an open heart and allow themselves to be vulnerable and seen, even when there is a risk of being judged, criticised or hurt.
I am inspired by those who fearlessly follow their passion and light the way for the rest of us, showing us how it looks to dedicate your life to the thing you care most deeply about or that brings you most joy, while being in service to others.
We’re all complex human beings, with different ideas about what it means to live a joyful and fulfilled life. There are so many facets to the human experience and no one single thing is the silver bullet that guarantees personal happiness and freedom.
Through my own journey and witnessing the life journeys of others, I’ve come to believe that the keys to a joyful, fulfilled and balanced life are as follows:
Engaging in work that lights you up and allows you to apply your unique gifts and strengths.
Contributing to something larger than yourself and that somehow makes the world a better place.
Being unapologetically and authentically yourself.
Cultivating self-understanding and awareness; knowing your deepest motivations, fears and desires, your strengths, your weaknesses, your patterns and triggers; overcoming your inner barriers and cultivating inner peace and freedom.
Having a good relationship with yourself first and foremost; making peace with your past, working through unhealed emotional pain and engaging in radical self-care.
The willingness to love and be loved by a circle of people close to you.
Working through issues in relationships by cultivating empathy and compassion; having the courage to work through painful situations in order to move to forgiveness and acceptance of yourself and the other person.
Exercising and moving your body in ways that feel joyful and satisfying and keep your body agile and strong.
Engaging in work or activities that allow your creativity to flow freely.
Nourishing your body with whole foods, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, superfoods, vitamins and antioxidant-filled teas.
Living and working in physical environments that lift your energy.
Feeling financial freedom that allows you to enjoy the things that are most joyful and important to you in life.
Feeling connected to and supported by something larger than yourself. Many studies show that people who feel a spiritual connection and engage in some kind of spiritual practice live longer and feel happier than those who do not.
When you’re able to know and trust in your bones that “the Universe has your back and is conspiring around your success” (Claire Zammit, Feminine Power), you begin to see the perfection in everything in your life, even in your hardest and darkest times.
