Hey, there! I am Jolanda, a Metaphysical Transformation Mentor. I work with people who are in the messy middle between their desire and manifested result, help them find their divine direction in life and get through the blocks and resistances they find along the way.
I am a life coach and business coach with twenty-five years of experience with tarot and the akashic records. I am also the author of the Tarot Guide for Beginners.
I am all about transformational processes. I help people who are ready for transformation understand their reason for being here, understand and why it is so hard to make to move from knowing who you are at origination, to actually living that. I want to be an example for them and share my experiences.
How I Got Started
I was born in the Netherlands in 1967. Looking back, writing has always had a strong attraction. I was six when I “wrote” my first “book” (four pages with drawings and my first awkward sentences of encouragement for a niece who was in the hospital).
I have also been mesmerized by the metaphysical world. At 11 years old, I used to listen to this radio program about haunted houses, divination, and all that – feeling very intrigued but also a bit spooked out. Don’t ask me to watch a horror movie now, I’m way too sensitive for that 😕
These aspects were no coincidence. When I learned to read the Akashic Records according to the Soul Realignment method I learned that my gifts and talents are writing and teaching in combination with my psychic abilities to transform your life. I’m here (I always find that a bit awkward to write down) to bring consciousness to the world and to deliver knowledge about who people really are.
Pulling that insight out of my Soul Blueprint helped me to come to terms with being called “too sensitive” as a child. Imagining the secret worlds and writing about them helped me to recover from intense situations early on. They were the first steps on the path as an author.
Still, it took me thirty years to buy my first tarot deck, but the rest is history. I’ve never put down my cards after that. I started reading tarot cards in 1997 and started my first reading business in 1999. I was successful with it until I got stuck in the messy middle of limiting beliefs and high expectations I thought I had to fulfill as an “adult”. You can’t earn money with spiritual stuff, right? I went off on a tangent, circling trying to find the exit toward that dream life.
Living My Soul Purpose
As my life was pretty sucky at the time I read my Akashic Record for the first time, I decided to experiment as I had nothing to lose. I decided to follow the aspects in my Soul Blueprint and if that would improve things.
I quickly noticed that while my brain screamed murder when I tried to take action, it didn’t stop me as it would in the past. I noticed how much more in the flow I got and how quickly my life improved. I made big decisions with my Soul Blueprint as my North Star. I became courageous and energized.
One significant action I took was translating and rewriting my Dutch tarot book and republishing it as the Tarot Guide for Beginners in 2022 and translating it back to Dutch in 2023. It was as if I took the lid off an energy source because I have written so much content after that, it still makes my head buzz when I think of it. Spiritual content to teach has been constantly flowing out of me with an ease I could not have imagined earlier. Within a year, I changed my business model and went back to what I love most: tarot for self-development and growth, channeling, mentoring, writing, and all things spiritual.
I firmly believe that dreaming your dream and taking small steps toward it is instrumental in getting there.
My Metaphysical Philosophy
Only listening to me reading your cards or your Soul Blueprint is useless. What you learn about yourself needs to be followed by action. Otherwise, you will not manifest anything of value, but end up overwhelmed and frustrated. That is why I combine my readings with time to talk about how you can implement what I channel. With a lot of humor and my matter-of-fact Dutch attitude, I mentor you to take feasible, simple steps adjusted to your courage.
