A year ago, I took a leap of faith

‍

πŸ€ A year ago, I took a leap of faith πŸ€


πŸ”₯ After completely changing our lives around, moving to Mexico and birthing a beautiful daughter, it was time to transform the way I was creating value in the world.


πŸ‰ You see- I had always attracted jobs that were fun. That offered opportunities for growth. That took me to beautiful new places in the world- like Bonaire, Dubai and Silicon Valley. Jobs that paid well. And I'm very grateful for those opportunities. But there was always a part of me that ached. A part of me that could not be fully expressed.


🦜 A year ago I found myself working a freelance job that was taking up a lot of headspace. It wasn't the job itself- no, it was my mind that was continuously obsessing over whether I was doing the job well enough. I felt split between the job I felt I *had* to do in order to create stability in my crazy new life and a financial baseline, and the things that were stirring inside me that I was really longing for: expanding on my energy healing talents, diving deep into the mysteries of the Universe, and spending more time with my fresh little family.


πŸ¦„ One day -a year ago- I got terrifyingly real with myself. And I realized that by working that freelance job and worrying about money, I was actually distracting myself from discovering and living the life I truly desired. A long hard look at my financial situation showed me that I was fortunate enough to sustain myself for about a year.


🌝 So I took the plunge and gave myself a year 'off'. A year to explore my unique gifts. To prioritize rest & restoration to integrate big life changes. A year to find out what truly makes my heart sing. To study & expand. A year to discover the ways I want to bring value to the world. A year in which I promised myself to not have to worry where the money was going to come from.


😱 That year has been transformative and expansive in many, many ways- and has not always been easy. I have come to a completely new understanding of Life and our role in it. This understanding came with some serious health challenges. I was quite literally shedding my skin in a long eczema outbreak. Simultaneously, Michael and I navigated some deep parenthood & relationship trials. All the while working on birthing my soul-aligned business Elsenzo. On very very little sleep ;)


πŸ‘‰ And I'm SO happy and grateful for all of it. Because after all these trials and tribulations, I now feel grounded and on course. I know who I am and what I'm here to do.


🌈 I have come to the deep, embodied realization that I am a unique expression of God, and I'm here to remind you that you are, too! As such, we get to create our own reality.


πŸ‘Ή However, we have to do the work of excavating and de-conditioning our essence, first. Face our demons and transform them. Take responsibility for our dark patches. Own it all. And move forward from there.


πŸ’— I am so grateful to the Els-one-year-ago for taking this leap. It has given me much more than I could have ever imagined.


⏳ I am very well aware that not everybody is in the position to give themselves a year 'off' like I did to explore their calling. Luckily, It's not always necessary- everybody has their own unique path.


⚑️What matters is TAKING THE DECISION, not how much money you have in the bank. I have experienced over and over again that when one takes a bold decision, Life organizes itself around it.


πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ And the beautiful thing is- we don't have to do it all alone. I'm so grateful for allowing myself to reach out for support. Walking this path together with like-minded sisters and coaches has kept me on course when times got tough. You know who you are. ✨Thank you✨.


❀️ I now feel more at home in my life than I ever have. When I look at all the beauty that we have consciously (co-)created, my heart fills with so much joy. I feel immense gratitude to my human partner-in-creation Michael, who does not shy away from doing the deep and confronting inner work together.


✨ I'm so excited to see what the next year will bring. And of course, there is always more work to do and this is just the beginning.


🍾 If you feel that you're ready to take the leap and discover what you're here to do - Congratulations!
