On her ‘re-birthday’, Nienke started the Phoenix Frequencies podcast series to give a spark of inspiration to the people who face shifts in life. A celebrational start on October 12th 2023: Her second re-birthday.
We all have a choice about how we design our lives. Living our past or creating, based on what we learned from the past, our future.
Like the Japanese art of Kintsugi, healing with gold the beauty of your scars.
Phoenix rises: It isn’t the ash that IS your life; it is the rising from the ash that makes life fertile.
In this podcast, I share how I relearned to live based on the present.
Every week, I give short episodes with food for thought.
Or I interview another phoenix who faced obstacles and moved beyond them. The real thing is that we learn more from what and how we learn than from the pretended positivity.
As a HeartBraincoach and HeartAmbassador, I love to explore with curiosity the unexpected perspectives in redesigning your life as a phoenix.
Being the eye of storms in life, Nienke saw that as a strength for a long time…. After the first Phoenix Frequencies went live, Nienke got many requests to share her background and the drive behind this podcast. From a very young age, Nienke learned it was rewarding to look after others. No wonder she became a nurse. The quality of listening to others, empathy and staying calm became attractive to others. Supporting others became a pattern in Nienke’s life. Until a benign brain tumour showed her a different path. Only a full stop made a transformation possible. The ashes. Based on four questions and rising awareness around Matyrhood, Nienke found her way up. Use it if it helps you, share it if it can help others. Dare to rise.
It is time to rise. The Phoenix frequency podcast series has started. Where life seems to have burned you down, the Phoenix frequencies might be a resource for you. It is time to rise with the frequency that fits you in your life’s purpose.

We are all responsible for how we show up in the world, to others, ánd to ourselves. With Phoenix Frequencies, Nienke van Bezooijen shines her light on what we can do to be the best versions of ourselves based on how we show up and what we are willing to learn. It isn’t about showing the way with pretended positivity, it is the heart-based vulnerability-sharing options. It takes courage to rise. See what is for you. Or share with others. Perfect doesn’t exist; curiosity can be the stepping stone to broaden your perspectives. If you want to be interviewed as a phoenix, write to heartbraincoachnienke @gmail.com
How we perceive our quality of life can be very different. It goes beyond the popular term mindset. No matter how small it seems to others, we can all add life to our days rather than adding days to our lives. Nienke’s gran Emma became nearly 99 years old. Till the day she died, at least she tried to add value for herself and others by adding lifequalities to her days. She had a healthy and empathic style of interest. Although her self-esteem wasn’t high based on her own opinion, she shared: with a child’s hand to guide where they don’t dare, I can move mountains and rise above myself: being at service. Sincere listening to each other fueled her well-being. How do you live your days? If there comes a phoenix moment in your lifetime, it can be a start to redefining the qualities of your new lifedesign. The other option is adding day by day till your last day. What is your legacy, then? In the rat race of working life, we often forget we truly have a choice in how we design our days. If you come from a place where you don’t listen to what you need to keep up your energy to sustain, you are just a concatenation of your days. If you take a pause and listen, what do you, really, want and what do you let be in the way to reach that? These are just some questions to contemplate.
Special thanks for the inspiration to Dr. Sander de Hosson, who is a real advocate for the quality of life of his patients even if there is no longer a cure possible. Care is what we all can add till the last breath. You can read Nienke’s book, My Life with Emma, Moving Mountains in Silence to read more about Emma. Kindle $1 on Amazon
