This week we're chatting with Neel Van Lierop, spiritual motivator and entrepreneur of Inner Compass Cards. It's no secret that we're obsessed with her beautiful card readings, but we're also pretty inspired by her gypsette Amsterdam/LA lifestyle. So dreamy! Read on to find out how she created the concept for ICC and how reconnecting to herself shifted her approach to health.
(ON HER JOURNEY)
After years of struggling, searching and analyzing, I found that I had managed to live through some life lessons and truly understand their deeper meaning. Now, I follow my own path, which has led me to a surprisingly free existence and a deep sense of inner peace, but it has also given me the experience of the 49 life themes that have become the foundation of the Inner Compass deck. The Inner Compass cards are the fundamental basis of my work, whilst coaching, workshops and talks allow me to bring as many people as possible towards living their fullest potential.
(ON THE CARDS)
The Inner Compass deck point to a new way of self-reflection and personal growth. The cards ask you questions and give you insights. They wake you up to the many opportunities that you have been missing out on while you were sleepwalking through life. The deck can guide you on a daily basis, or whenever you need answers to specific situations or questions. And anyone can use them; easily, effortlessly and playfully. The Inner Compass cards play a huge role in my life. They keep me on track, on my unique path. They help me to stay focused, and above all to believe in myself.
(ON HOW SELF-CONNECTION HAS SHIFTED HER APPROACH TO HEALTH)
I actually struggled with health for many years and restricted myself a lot. I was consuming healthy products, for both internal and external reward, but at the end of the day I realised I wasn't feeling any better. Since then I’ve been working on self-worthiness and I’ve managed to develop a much healthier relationship with my body. I realised that I was subconsciously telling myself ‘You’re not good enough’ everyday. Now I consciously choose to thank my body, and honour it with the food and products I consume. At the end of the day, love is the most healing vibration!
(ON HER LIFE & PASSION)
I try to live the life that I deeply desire, and am strongly guided by my intuition. I would say I am a messenger of universal wisdom, which is I believe is available for everyone. I simply opened myself up, and have found that in doing so this inspires others to do so too. Guiding people to regain their own personal power has become my life passion.
(ON HER NOMADIC EXPERIMENT)
I lived in the US – mainly California – for six months. This journey kind of ‘happened to me’. I heard a very clear voice in my head telling me to go to Venice Beach. I hardly even knew where is was, but I felt that I had to listen and booked a plane ticket. It's been such an important chapter of my life. I used to get so homesick and had a clear attachment, but now I feel at home wherever I am. I guess in the process, I have really come home to myself.
(ON DEFINING A SUPER-HIGH VIBE LIFE)
To me, a super-high vibe life is based on the frequencies of light and love. The word vibe must come from vibration, so yeah, high vibration = love and light!
