Interview with Vanessa
about her personal painting
NAME: Vanessa Lardenoit
ACTIVITIES: myself – nature – spirituality
BIGGEST DREAM: to become a spiritual counselor for the dying and their loved ones
What inspired you to receive a personal painting?
It has been clear to me, for a long time now, that we are all unique in our own special way. Of all the billions of people walking on this planet, there are no two people on Earth exactly the same. When I came into contact with Steffi and she told me about this personal painting I was very intrigued, because – as I read on her website – she is able to make a unique painting, which is completely tailored to the person for whom she paints it. I didn't waver for a second :-).
Did you have certain experiences/thoughts/feelings during the period in which your painting was created, that you would like to share?
When Steffi was creating the painting, I was very curious about how she was doing it. Occasionally, I felt her subtly tuning into me personally and to my energy. I did have a few preferences for my personal painting, like no colours that were too bright and the painting still had to have a feel to it, that it vibrated with angelic energy. So, a lot of information to deal with for Steffi. That is why I ended up choosing a painting that is created in flow, and I gave Steffi carte blanche on its creation.
What was it like for you to see your painting for the first time?
Seeing the painting for the first time really touched me. I felt, when looking at it, that I was looking at myself, standing there with all my emotions, my entire being. The painting was like a wholesome and vivid part of me.
What connection do your experience between your painting and your inner world?
Steffi finished the painting in bright colours and moving shapes, just as I am: light and energetic. When I look at the painting, for me, it is like looking in the mirror and seeing myself completely, my outer as well as my inner self.
How does the painting contribute to your daily life?
In fact as it is now, my personal painting is displayed between my plants in my so-called 'garden room' where it can take root and flourish just like I do, when I look at it.
Unbeknown to Steffi at the time and to her credit, she sensed that the painting isn’t complete without hints of green shadings painted into it.
In the end it is fitting and very appropriate.
Is there a connection between your personal painting and your dream?
Yes, it helps me to keep seeing, feeling & experiencing the divine and the higher realms, every single day again. Just what I need to be able to become a spiritual counselor.
Was your personal painting worth the investment?
It was totally worth it, thank you Steffi. On moments when I feel down or when I have an off-day, it helps me boost my energy and remember who I really am.
What would you like to say to others about receiving a personal painting?
Go for it, take a leap. As in life, dare to live authentically. Surrender to Steffi’s gift and intuition. Open up your intuitive channel. Be receptive to her energy and your energy flowing to her and then…. let yourself be surprised, again and again!
