I remember for so many years not feeling I belonged anywhere, not finding a place where I could be. Only my personality was alive, my soul had no home. Despite loving parents and pretty strong prosperity.
I searched for more than 40 years for a sense of belonging. Seeking a place where I could feel earthed. Traveling the world, trying to find my place. Seeking in all kinds of wisdom traditions.
Now I feel so much stronger that my place is the result of a sense of belonging. A state that I myself create withint the soul. And with this the suffering and longing drop off.
My journey is first of all about bringing myself and people home, feeling a sense of alignment and belonging.
I am Jaco. I was born and raised in a small village located in the southern part of the Netherlands, I lived in an environment with strong social pressures - an environment that suppressed uniqueness, liveliness, creativity, vividness and spontaneity.
This environment suffocated my soul yet formed by practical personality in the early years. I studied satellite communications engineering and worked with major corporations in Dubai and throughout the Middle East, worked in the IT sector as a systems engineer and an IT expert. All that for a deeply spiritual, intuitive empath.
Of course, by 28 I finally had enough. I experienced my first burnout and began the true search for meaning. In the seeking years, I felt lost, hopeless and without a purpose, but I also noticed that I could feel, sense and see the energy of people. This was at first very hard to handle and I crashed psychologically and physically. Why? Feeling is healthy, freeing!
Not when you are not grounded, aligned and in resonance with your Highest Self - in connection with the Source.
Medicine did not help, therapy did not help, classic coaching did not help. I needed to find a much deeper and experiential way to the Soul. I began to align and reconnect to my highest self actively.
With time and effort I started improving, I learned how to coach and work with visionary people in a corporate environment, and I was slowly exploring my purpose by interacting with energies of people and organizations. I was doing very well, my business experienced massive growth and in the second year of my coaching business I made a turnover of 1 million €. But there was still a certain dark cloud in my life and I found that I was living two lives; two identities trying to survive in two different environments. Where did I belong truly.
Then the second burnout happened. My business went down. I was 100K € in debt. I had no energy and started suffering from anxiety. I did not know how to proceed, in short I lost hope and sadly I did know how to be a father anymore.
I was no longer committed, courageous and connected.
During that depressing time my soul asked me to get time alone, I ventured into the Pyrenees mountain range on a vision quest. There I realized that I had in fact hit rock bottom.
But after some intense days of soul searching I found clarity of my essence, a new grounding, an independent belonging. I felt a NEW EARTH opening up. I began to connect the dots and see the patterns appear.
This is what I am now fully committed into the World
To Guide my fellow Global Colleagues and Clients to aligning and embodying their Highest Multi-Dimensional Self.
