My name is Eline
I’m a soul, human being, woman, daughter, sister, partner, mother, dancer, teacher, and leader. I’m living in Driebergen-Rijsenburg, a beautiful green village in Utrecht with my great loves Bob and Ben since April 2021.
Bob would describe me as active, kind-hearted, compassionate, and crazy (the good kind). And I totally agree with him on that.
Deeply convinced that our bodies carry a lot of wisdom, more than we can comprehend with our heads, I feel a great mission in this life to bring people in contact with their own bodies. It takes courage and practice to listen to our own bodies, especially in a world where the focus is mainly on our minds and thoughts. I’ve struggled with this since I was a kid. My body has always spoken to me very clearly, unconditionally, and pure. But it often told me very different things than my environment seemed to find ‘normal’. I ignored my inner voice for a long time and I developed an eating disorder in my early teens. I was hard on myself and created an unhealthy relationship with my body. I wanted to physically make myself smaller and actually wanted to disappear from this earthly world where I felt I didn’t belong.
“I’m in contact with my body now”
Years are long past and now I’m grateful every day for my powerful, beautiful, strong body.
I gave natural birth to my son and nourished him and my own body at the same time. Every day I make contact with my body. I am proud of my deep strong sexual energy and the courage to express her. I am able to let my feelings flow and to free myself from patterns that no longer suit me. It is an ongoing, challenging quest to becoming the purest version of myself. My dream is to be able to take others with me on this journey and to guide them when they feel the call.
I’ve always supported Bob
In addition to my mission, I am of course full of admiration of Bob and love to follow and encourage him in his entrepreneurship as the owner of Dem Good Chai. I was there when he started creating his first classic chai. It was my mini kitchen in a small house in Utrecht that was suddenly full of chai spices when Bob received his first orders. Now I wave him goodbye in the morning with Ben when he goes to his office to work on his full-time business. It’s such a special journey and we learn more about it together every day.
Real, Raw, and Vulnerable
For Dem Good Chai I occasionally write blogs about our life together as a young family. We like to be grounded and loving in a very hectic world. And that brings a lot of challenges, vulnerability, moments of happiness, and life lessons. I’ll share with love how we deal with our health, peace, space, freedom, and intimacy. How do we relate to each other and the world around us?
Comments are always welcome and I look forward to exchanging experiences.
