Embrace Your Gift
You’ve got what it takes to shine, but something is holding you back.
You love understanding yourself and working on yourself, but it’s also time to graduate, implement it all and actually move forward
You want to do something meaningful with your life but you seem to have conflicting priorities
You want to know what’s pulling you off-track whenever you make headway
If any of that’s you, then you’ve come to the right place!!!
Welcome to Embrace Your Gift!
Hi! I’m Danielle Brouwer and I’m so glad you’re here!
I’d love to know your unique challenge: what would you like to express into the world? And what’s been holding you back?
Go ahead, answer the questions! It’s anonymous – unless you choose to leave your email.
Answering the questions gives you the opportunity to really feel into things and your answers will help me tune in on what you really need! Win-win!
You can use the arrows to move back and forth between the questions. The ‘submit’ button will appear when you’re ready.
By the time we’re seven we are more or less fully shaped in terms of how we respond, how we interpret things, what meaning we assign to the events in our lives.
We receive very clear messages from the people around us about what’s acceptable and what isn’t. And the more sensitive and empathetic you are, the deeper the message is ingrained.
By the time you’re seven, you know exactly what you have to do to get what you need in your specific situation. And if that situation isn’t as safe as you need it to be, you know how to adjust to make it as safe as possible. And if that blows up in your face, you try harder the next time.
Over the years you have committed to your ‘safety tools’ because they worked. When you were seven…
If right now, as an adult, you feel you’re stuck, and no matter what you do you can’t seem to truly move forward, understand that – even though you’re no longer that 7-year old girl – you’re still committed to your ‘safety behaviour’.
But… that behaviour was never meant to let you move forward! It was meant to get you to adapt and adjust!

The Obstacle Series
Do you ever feel you’re spending your life flying under the radar, or holding back your gifts and talents, when what you really want is to step into the light and shine?
I’ve recently come to understand why I have spent my life holding back – and I now see the many ways in which I (constantly!) throw obstacles in my own path.
The thing is, when I look around me, I see the women in my tribe do the exact same thing!
The dream you’re trying to accomplish may be different from mine, but I think the way in which we conjure up obstacles may well be very similar.
Which is why I’ve created the Obstacle Series, a series of posts in which I shed light on the various techniques (oh yes!) that we use to hold ourselves back.
So if you want to know what’s keeping you from actual success when you know you’ve got what it takes to shine, head on over to the blog!
One Foot On The Gas, The Other On The Brakes: Opposing Commitments
Embracing Your Gift is all about coming to terms with your hidden commitments, because hidden commitments let you sabotage yourself in plain sight. Here's one such example. After publishing my blog and then my website, I fell into a void.Thanks to my Challenge Log...
Are you familiar with that analogy of the person spending her time pulling bodies out of the river? Well, this time we’re going to the point where they’re being thrown in.
Embrace Your Gift parts from an entirely different premise than my previous programmes.
Even though it’s still about alignment and meeting your goals, it is based on the idea that some -maybe even most- of our patterns have been created at a time when they served to protect us – and that we’re still committed to those habits even though they now actually hinder us and hold us back. read more…
Maybe I Should Call This The Fake Obstacle Series!
The other day I wrote a post about fake obstacles. I meant to publish the first post of this series and for some reason the digital end of things...
