Hi, I’m Gaby!
For as long as I could remember I was giving away my power. To other people, to society. Always choosing the things I thought I was expected to, rather than the things I truly needed or wanted. Most of these decisions were based on fear. Fear of judgment, of not being good enough, fear of being labeled “weird” or even “crazy”. Always making the sensible choice, choosing the safe path. I was living so far out of alignment that I didn’t even know who I was anymore.
Until, a few years ago, my soul and the universe quite literally brought me to my knees and said, “no more”. One day while getting up to go to work, my legs just wouldn’t support me anymore. I couldn’t do anything. One of the scariest things I’ve ever experienced! Not knowing what was going on, being completely dependent on others for everything. A period of uncertainty followed while I tried to figure out what was happening. Which turned out to be quite a challenge… physically it seemed like I was fine. Initially doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with me. But clearly something was going on! It wasn’t until I was brutally honest with myself, and took the steps to see if my suspicions were correct, that I finally got my answer. Complete and total burn-out.
The road to recovery has been long and difficult, but getting that burn-out was the best thing that ever happened to me. It forced me to go within. To look at myself and be honest about what I wanted and needed. To start living my life instead of the life others thought I should live. Along the way I had my spiritual awakening and that is when things really kicked off. I learned so many things, about this world we live in, the universe we’re in. But most importantly, I learned about myself. A huge breakthrough for me was realizing that I had taken on the role of victim in my own life. I was always blaming other people and circumstances for what happened to me, but never took responsibility for my part in all this. The moment I did that, took control of my energy, my thoughts, my feelings and actions, things shifted.
I took back my power. I freed myself from everything that wasn’t me and started living my own life. And now I want to help you do the same. So you can become your greatest version and live your best life. Are you ready?
“sfaelin” is based on one of Tolkien’s elven languages, Quenya. Tolkien’s elves represent my vision for humanity – how they live and think, the way they work with nature, their use of magic. I always knew I wanted to incorporate that in my name. sfaelin is a combination of the words for soul/spirit, universe, daughter, freedom, star and moon. Things that represent who I am, what I stand for, where I’m going. It is very important to me to make my contribtution to a better world. The more I raise my awareness and consciousness, the more important it is to me to make sure my actions are in alignment with my values. And this will of course also be reflected in my business and the work I do!
My soul loves that place where science meets spirituality. Where the intellectual and the divine come together. Learning about and sharing the secrets of the universe.
My human loves YA novels, long walks on the beach with my feet in the water, dancing, animals, nature, exploring the wonders of this world, movies and vegan pizza.
