By listening to my inner wisdom, I started to awaken to my Soul. Yoga found me, meditation found me, and then crystals started to trickle into my home and the stacks of spiritual self-help books started to grow. I started to see that there was a whole other realm to lean into when it comes to live – a realm that was supportive, expansive, creative and inherently feminine. Piece by piece, my Self started to come home to it all.
Intuitive living is a true commitment to the reclamation of what it means to be a human being in this world. Speaking from my own experience, it continues to be a rebuilding of a lot of what I was taught and shown about what it means to be a woman in this society.
I now live in the south of the Netherlands (born and raised!) with my cat Nala, writing this heartfelt note on my journey to you on the laptop from which I build on this business called the Spiritual Feminist. It’s pretty wild – exactly how my soul would like to see it!
To tell you the truth, living intuitively is simple. It’s simple because it’s about including your body and soul into the conversation. It’s simple because it’s a grounded, expansive way of living, rather than a reason-driven state of mind, which will always find reasons to not be or feel enough.
But just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy.
It takes tremendous courage to take the intuitive leap.
It takes continuous effort to pick apart conditioning and live close to your inner Truth.
It takes energy, commitment and awareness to move away from the expected path and choose to flow with your inner river.
And yet here I am. Living and thriving and happier than ever, because I live in alignment with my soul. I honour my body and use my mind to connect, create and write. I understand my inner world more than ever before and still maintain a curious attitude to all the lessons yet to come.
Does any of this resonate with you, spark something in you, trigger you, and/or inspire you?
I would love to hear from you, sister. We may be all walking our own, unique, individual paths, but I trust that these paths run parallel to each other – and that they all lead to the same river. And from that abundant well, we can all drink. We can all swim, bathe and flow. Together. That is my vision and mission, from which the Spiritual Feminist has been born.
My own life’s experiences and my love for spirituality combined is what makes the Spiritual Feminist the container it is today.
From my heart to yours.
