Welcome to the world of infinite brainpower!
My name is Ingrid, originally from the gloomy country of Holland but now residing in sunny Florida, and I’m zealously passionate about sharing how my personal experiences have led to the understanding of how our subconscious mind is involved in shaping everything regarding our health and behavior, and more importantly – how incredibly easy it is to create positive changes that are permanent and genuine.
When I was 23 years old I owned a successful hair salon back in the Netherlands for 10 years. My clients felt like my dearest friends, my family. Many of them shared with me their life experiences – anywhere from happy and enjoyable events to the struggles they were dealing with, and misfortunes they were overcoming. Matter of fact, I noticed that many of them just needed someone to listen with an open mind and a kind heart, without judgment or fear of being misunderstood. It was through those years that I solidified my capacity for helping others.
I had always been very caring from an early age for everyone in my surroundings. The circumstances in my childhood were far from ideal (to say the least). I closely experienced all types of injustice and was constantly focused on ‘soothing the situation’ and consoling others. And although the start to my life was far from pleasant, I never gave up on my personal pursuit – I always deeply felt there was a way out. I intensely believed there were possibilities to improve my life, and now I’ve come out the other side knowing that we possess the hidden key to all of our questions.
I authentically understood my friends, relatives and clients’ experiences. I was, in part, successful by superficial standards. I seemed healthy, appeared happy, and lived my life like everybody else. But the truth is that I was far from healthy. Having tried out many different types of therapies, for years, I was constantly searching for answers. An answer to why I felt the way I did, why I thought the way I did, why I behaved the way I did.
I am much more relaxed now, more alert, better aware of what’s going on, healthier and much more successful in business.
There is more terrain to explore and Ingrid will definitely be my coach. If you have a chance, meet her and your life will definitely change for the better..
Being yourself …
If you’d have asked me this a year ago, I would have said: “That’s not possible for anyone, not even for myself” … or is it: Especially not for myself…?
Being able to feel free in a way that I can even show the tiniest and most vulnerable piece of me: that’s what Ingrid has given me. She uses the Progressive Mental Alignment technique, of course, to create that level of freedom, which she does in a very experienced, respectful and open manner. But especially by showing her own openness and vulnerability, which allows you the freedom to be who you are: yourself..
Ingrid has given me the confidence that I can go as deep and as far as I want to go. Without judgment, but with lot of empathy she has accompanied me through a lot of my inner search journeys already.
In short, Progressive Mental Alignment and Ingrid have helped me discover what I always already had in me.
From my teen years on, I stumbled upon one health problem to another and in 1996, a client referred me to a Holistic Health specialist named Jacob Korthuis. Supposedly he was one of the best Chiropractors and Holistic specialists in Holland and had developed a new self-help/coaching technique based on years of scientific research about the brain that was gaining popularity. I desperately wanted to feel better, and I just knew that somewhere there had to be an answer, so I went.
He had a little red flyer sitting on a table in his office that explained how his technique worked, and I immediately knew this was the answer I had been looking for. After so many years of confusion, pain, and unhappiness – I finally felt there was someone out there who understood me. His explanation of how the brain worked and why we make ourselves unnecessarily ill, getting in the way of our own success, seemed so logical, so simple. I started visiting Jacob regularly for sessions and training classes and it changed my life in indescribable ways. The sessions taught me that you can reverse the process and change direction for the better. There is a solution to every single problem you have, large or small. And if you allow yourself to think without boundaries, there are solutions everywhere; they may not be the solutions you expect, but they are out there. So in 2002 I made a drastic move and joined Jacob’s team as a Progressive Mental Alignment coach in the United States. It’s been over 17 years since beginning my journey, and my love for helping others has led me to creating this website – so I can share my insights with you, and let you know that there are always answers to what you’re looking for.
My goal is to share the knowledge I’ve gained so women can harness their true confidence, not one that is based on fear or superficial attributes. I want you to become aware that your mind is capable of so many wonderful things – all you have to do is give yourself the permission to allow it to do its job. I want to prove to you that you are smart enough to make your own decisions, you do have value, and if you’re brave enough think without boundaries, you can learn to accept yourself for who you really are. There is no must, only possibilities. Progressive Mental Alignment is the method that changed my life all those years ago, and the one I continue to incorporate into my daily life and those of my friends, family and clients’ lives. I proudly proclaim that I am PMA minded, and I would love to accompany you in your journey to become PMA minded, too.
