From Kidney Transplant to Sensuality via Antarctica

Posted on 24/04/2012

I used to be full of energy and had an appetite for life in my teens and early twenties. Then gradually through my late twenties, my health started to deteriorate because of a kidney condition. It was a long and slow downhill process that ended up with me needing a kidney transplant to survive. It felt like I had lost all my sparkle.

Luckily for me, my wonderful brother Jonas donated one of his kidney and it completely changed my life, to the extent that I and my husband could go on a trip to Antarctica, something which would have been unthinkable a few years earlier, when every day was a struggle emotionally and physically.

Sparkle found and lost again

After the transplant it was amazing to be and feel alive every day. I was riding on the wave of feeling sensuality and passion. I had so much energy and women began to ask where it came from.

The trip to Antarctica put me even deeper into feeling passionate and inspired about myself and life. But when we came back home I felt low and I lost hope for keeping that sparkle alive. I was wondering if I needed to go on another similar trip or go through a new health scare to be able to experience feeling the lust for life again. I thought there must be an easier way.

My curiosity took over and I started to research, read about, and interview women about what they want in life, what's missing, and what they want more or less of. I found out many women missed sensuality and energy in their lives.

Claiming back the lost world of sensuality

Eventually I discovered when I didnt have Sparkle I was lacking in energy and sensuality. I was living my life from my head, busy with my mind full of negative thoughts cut off from the world of senses in my body.

I learned how to re-connect to that sensuality and energy on a daily basis, and decided to share this with other women. Re-Discover Your Sparkle was born.

Today I teach women how to claim back their right to a world of sensuality through mindful exercise such as Nia dance movement, stillness and breathing, and to see life through a more humorous filter. It gives you the energy to cope with the world and gives a boost to your more intimate relationships. And you dont have to go to the ends of the earth to get it.
