Empower yourself by claiming your place

Do you recognise that wonderful feeling of being empowered as an individual and being able to resolutely claim your place? Or is your life being lived for and do you regularly encounter the same patterns in both your personal and professional life? Stubborn patterns in your life can often be traced back to your family system; the inseverable connection with your family members. 
Using the fountain as metaphor for the family system, this practical book provides insight into numerous human themes, including feeling guilty (of innocent), taking on too much responsability, maintaining realionships and letting go. 

Find your rightful place using the fountain and allow your life to go better than ever before.

Els van Steijn (1969) has her own coaching practice and is specialised in the systemic perspective. She has been able to guide hundreds of clients in their personal and professional growth. For her clients, the fountain is an eye-opener and the missing piece of the puzzle needed to effectively take the next step. 

In what place are you?

How do you look at your mother? How does she look at you?
How do you look at your father? And how does he look at you?

How do you look at your partner? And how do they look at you?
How do you look at your childeren? How do they look at you?

With your father and mother in your heart, you can’t freeze. You take your place in the fountain. From there, you can use your individuality and flair to achieve and chase goals valuable to you. With the invisible support and strength of the fountain, you have vitality and enjoy relationships that enrich both you and the other person. Your receive what is there. Receive plenty and you’ll have lots to give. 
Thanks to your inner attitude, you can ‘descend’ to your place in the fountain if needed. You allow the systemic principles to work for you, automatically pulling you into a positive spiral. Creating, as I see it conditions for a good life.

As a coach for teams, individuals and organizations I have experienced the power of the fountain. This concept clarifies what happens in the subconscience of a family, a team or an organization. It provides a bright insight in the ‘why’ of behavior. In her book Els van Steijn makes it easy to understand the complexity and dynamics of any family relationship or any relationship in a working environment. I am certainly looking forward to her next book.
