Hey, there! I am Jolanda, a Metaphysical Mentor for the Messy Middle. It means that I guide you on your path to fully becoming yourself on a soul level. I am a life coach and business coach with twenty-five years of experience with tarot and the akashic records. I am a life coach, business coach, and author of the Tarot Guide for Beginners.
I am passionate about embracing your soul purpose by living it. I want to be an example and share my experiences with others.
How I Got Started
I was born in the Netherlands in 1967. Looking back, I’ve always written, and I’ve always been mesmerized by the metaphysical world. But this was a coincidence – I found these links in my Akashic Record when I finally learned to read them.
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 a reading business and was very successful with it. A few years later, after writing down everything I knew about tarot, a friend suggested I’d publish it as a book. After only a few rejections, a well-known publishing house in the Netherlands published it.
My Metaphysical Philosophy
I firmly believe that only listening to me reading your cards or your Akashic Record is useless. What you learn about yourself needs to be turned into action. Otherwise, you will not manifest anything of value. That is why I combine my readings with time to talk about how you will implement what you’ve just heard. With a lot of humor and my matter-of-fact Dutch attitude, I mentor you to take feasible, easy steps. These steps may be a bit scary but know that you are much more courageous when you need to take action from your soul purpose.
My Divine Soul Gifts
My soul purpose entails two significant gifts: communication and power. It didn’t surprise me that my connection with words (writing, speaking, and teaching) was part of it, but connecting with power caused a lot of resistance, as well as finding out that I need to step forward into the light with both my gifts. I struggled with disempowerment all my life, and being in the center of attention was not my forte.
Over the years, I got sidetracked from these activities because I thought I “should” do something else with my life (a.k.a. something accepted like taking on a management job). It quickly got me in trouble. It sucked all my energy, and I had a massive burnout. It took years to recover from it. After that, I tried several businesses, but they all failed because they were not aligned with who I am.
After losing myself (again) in one of those businesses, I decided that life should be joyful instead of struggling with being overwhelmed all the time. From that moment on, I asked myself for everything I did if the activity was joyful or fun. Quickly I found out that the majority of things I did were no fun at all. I quit doing them and replaced them with new things that seemed more fun.
A week later, I stumbled over a course that taught me how to read the Akashic Records.
A couple of months after learning to read akashic records, I noticed I knew a lot about my Akashic Record but hadn’t embodied it. Since I wanted more out of life, I decided to live my soul purpose and take action. I quickly noticed that while my brain screamed murder when I tried to take new action, it didn’t stop me as it would in the past. In short: embracing my soul purpose made me more 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. I also redesigned my business in alignment with my soul purpose and became a metaphysical mentor. If I wanted to be an example for my clients, I at least had to live my soul purpose.
