ABOUT SG (English)

I am Merel van Haastert, energy & lifecycle support guide.

It is important that you know the following:  I do not follow a method and do not have THE answers. As a guide I am not goal-oriented that way. As a Wise , Crone and Keeper I provide support and overview. When invited I listen, focus, translate, make visible, zone in and hold space. I challenge individual and overriding conditionings and patterns. I am unconventional, bold, unapologetic, sovereign, autonomous and honest

Aside from being a support guide, I share my insights and knowledge through my newsletter 'Plant your feet on SOLID GROUND'. I also do social projects like 'Let's sit and talk' and provide workshops on dream analysis and language.

I have a background in the creative. I was once trained as a professional ballet dancer. I have experience in the areas of art, development coorporation, Human Resources, styling and interior design and IT. I worked as a Project and Office Manager.

I feel humble to be able to have my work as a Wise Woman registered as an official business. Something to acknowledge because for centuries this has not been possible. I stand on the shoulders of many great great women, most of them forgotten, unmentioned, written out of history


What is Radical Selflove and -care through SOLID GROUND?

It is a practice where by making yourself top priority in your life and taking care of yourself first. I believe life is given for us to learn to live. I believe life is meant to be full of love and enjoyment. Pleasure is the measure of a soul being emotionally and spiritually fully stocked. I believe you and I are always supported and encouraged. I live and breathe this practice. It is the basis on which I create my life and work.

I make things visible, my presence brings forth what needs or is wanting to surface. Through this natural ability of my soul I am capable to see masks or masking, layers, conditioning for what it is, behind it, above, below, beyond. I see or things are revealed to me, and it feeds my appetite for understanding people, earth, processes. Someone who just met me said what I hear a lot: "You have that vibe that anyone can talk to you about anything. I feel comfortable telling you stuff and not judged." There is not much that shocks me (anymore), I can hold space and listen to just about anything, and I have. I am constantly in awe about the depth of our human experience, and I mean in all its complexity, shadow-sides and the downright ugly too. It doesn't mean there aren't any personal reactions or judgements, I practice healthy boundaries and Radical Selflove and -care. I have learned that me keeping my space gives everyone else space too, room to breath, to just be. And through that practice I can hear and leave responsibility with the other person. That's how I learn everyday, see beauty, love, abundance, suffering, heartache, loneliness, miscommunication, violence, abuse, innocence, manifestation. I have no desire for all of us to be the same. You can be opposite of me in what you believe, or what I would tolerate in my life, I will still see human and listen.
