You are a professional and you do your job well. But one day the universe starts to shake your shoulder, gently at first, but then more urgent. It wants you to wake up, find a meaning and a purpose in your life, and to take action.
Maybe you are already saying yes to this call. That’s awesome, because I know that it is far from easy to go through these transformations. But humans, animals, burning woods, the whole planet – they all need you to step into your leadership sooner rather than later.
You can always ignore these nudges from the universe, but then you will become bored, restless, or stuck, or even sick. You can only ask the question ‘now what?’ so many times without wanting to know the answer.
So it is better to go on this inner journey to find your soul mission. But now I can hear you thinking. “Where do I start this journey, and is there a finish line somewhere? Does this mean I will have to face all the old skeletons and dragons that are hidden in these depths as well?” Well, yes, it does.
Dragons are good news. They are the green light.
Your dragons point the way. Because where there is a dragon, there is also a castle, and that is where your soul mission lives. If you avoid the dragons, you will never find the treasure. When you have the courage to look at your dragons, when you stop hiding behind the distractions (lots of work, your phone, Netflix etc) you will find it.
The other good news? Your soul mission is not a big and hairy mission on a horizon far far away. You can follow it every day, but you need to be reminded, because your soul speaks so softly and the voices that want to distract you are so loud.
I want to support you with these reminders, using the concept of the hero’s journey, creativity, nature, journaling, humor, storytelling, the support of a community and other useful resources.
My name is Ellen de Dreu, and am a certified trainer and coach. Since my solo journey in an old campervan, I have become an expert in dragons, inner journeys and creating a meaningful business and life based on your soul mission.
I believe that this world will be a better place if we all start following the whispers of our souls. We will all have more confidence, more connection and more freedom. We will also have less need to look for outside validation, and can create a more simple and joyful life.
I offer you 3 programs in which I can help you to find your treasure behind the dragons and create a meaningful life for yourself and the world around you. You can do one of these programs, or all of them.
- Zakenreis van de Held (only in Dutch): an online and 1-on-1 coaching program if you want to start a business based on your soul mission, so you can earn money with what you want to do most and enjoy the freedom to express your inner self.
- The Camino del Soul: an individual retreat and coaching program if you are a professional with years of experience and you want to share your knowledge, express your true purpose, and/or lead a movement based on your soul mission (Dutch and English)
- The SoulDragonflies Inner Circle mastermind groups with exercises using creativity, nature, journaling, the concept of the hero’s journey, humor and storytelling, to support you on your journey to live your soul mission every day.

PS In the meantime I am working on an exciting new project: the Souldragonflies Tour! It involves a new journey with a bus and a purple loveseat and a dog and co-working in nature and lots of events (the so-called Tertulia’s) to connect to yourself and to others and to nature. If you want to hear more, subscribe to my blogs and I will let you know soon.
