about me

I’m compassionate, curious, and creative, 

a down-to-earth, high-flying, heart-&-soul woman, mother, human, spiritual being with flesh and bones, a visionary and ordinary personal growth seeker and coach, emotional believer, and practical skeptic. I’m a beginner and expert, artist and manager, teacher and student balancing freedom and commitment.

On my journey, I’ve paid my dues, taken my share of formal education, completed studies and training, gained several degrees, took expected and unexpected career paths and personal life experiences in different political systems and countries. I’ve lived in a country that doesn’t exist anymore and draw from this as much as from living abroad in the Netherlands, the US, and Ecuador. I’ve worked for huge and small companies, owned my own concept store and café, and became a coach and designer on my terms.

I survived heart surgery, puberty, and divorce, embarrassments, rejections, and goodbyes. I quit jobs, relationships, and smoking once I chose for my health on all levels.

I’ve created my own traps and broken my chains over and over again with a new devil on each level, generating a miles-long track record of new beginnings, small and huge failures as well as wonderful successes in my businesses and my private life.

I strive to feel deep joy and gratitude every day,

I thrive in stillness and burst with excitement to help women spread their wings too.
I am inspired to my bones by what can be done when you follow your heart.

Gisela Christine Backe

Because when it comes down to it all, it’s about being alive. It’s about being a deliberate designer of your life. It’s about fulfilling your dreams and making miracles happen. Even the impossible ones.

That’s what I teach.
With curiosity, creativity, and compassion.

” Figure out who you are and then do it on purpose.”

Dolly Parton

It’s not about the grandness of your vision or the spectacular quality of your dream.
It’s about your heart, your soul and your spirit that calls for it.

If you feel there is more to life, more to give and more to live then you’re right.
Life is so much more than fulfilling your duties and checking off boxes.

If you want to find out what it could mean for you and where to start I’m here to help.

With fire & silver, words and visions. 

My creativity finds its way into custom jewelry designs and paintings for my clients.
