Eclectic Soul Expressions

My Story

Hello beautiful soul! My name is Sylvia de Boer and I am the founder of Eclectic Soul Expressions. This little online temple is an expression of my creative being combined with my lifelong passion for holistic living, spirituality and love for the extraordinary beauty found in cultures around the world.

To be honest, I find it very challenging to write about myself because when I look back at my life, I sometimes think that I have lived 10 lives in 1. My journey is a fusion of many creative interests and outlets, spirituality and an unending cycle of transformation.

Early Years and Dance: Growing up in a Dutch-Asian household, I had the best of both worlds. My mother's Thai Theravada Buddhism introduced me to spirituality, while my father's open-minded and scientific perspective shaped my curiosity and objectivity. This upbringing made me open-minded, accepting, and spiritually aware.

From the moment I could walk, I started dancing and this became a lifelong passion. By the time I turned 17, I worked as a part-time professional HipHop New Style dancer, teacher, and choreographer alongside my studies in Multimedia, Audiovisual Specialist (Video Editing), and Image & Media Technology (Utrecht School of the Arts). Additionally, I dabbled in sound engineering, drumming, and web design during my teenage years.

Career and Burnout: In 2010, during my studies I started my own company, Nova Visuals, a venture that would sustain me until December 2022. Back then my dreams were taking shape, especially my ambition to become a music video director, which led me to London twice. However, life had other plans the second time I moved to London in 2012. A severe burnout at the age of 25 served as a profound wake-up call. It was a week-long hospital stay that forced me to reassess my life's priorities. Despite my dedication to dance, studies, and career, I had neglected my spiritual well-being for too long.

Spiritual Awakening: With newfound awareness, I immersed myself in health, self-development, healing, and spirituality. Even though my spiritual journey had already started from the age of 15 due to my upbringing and documentaries such as 'What The Bleep Do We Know', 'The Secret' and my fascination with the Tarot in the years leading up to my burnout, I deepened my spiritual understanding and continued to transform as a person.

Nova Visuals: Between 2010 – 2022 I worked for the biggest companies in The Netherlands such as Foot Locker, ING, ABN AMRO, and DeOnlineDrogist as a visual designer, content creator, and photographer. I also did voice-over work for small businesses and was nominated as Freelancer of the year in 2016.

Life Alignment: In 2016, a significant turning point occurred when I met my 'twin flame'. This encounter initiated a profound spiritual awakening, marked by intense visions, dreams, signs, and synchronicities. My energy shifted dramatically, and I began to experience intense purging, clearing, and healing processes. My spiritual gifts and psychic abilities developed further during this time and I decided to study to become a Life Alignment practitioner. I did all the modules but never did the final exam because life was already guiding me towards other things. I have done countless healings on myself and use Life Alignment to energetically support animals and help friends and family. After this I also did a course in animal communication.

Gemstones & Nova Minerals: During my journey of Spiritual Awakening I started to recognise the power and beauty of gemstones and decided to start a small webshop alongside Nova Visuals called Nova Minerals. This webshop only lasted approx. 1,5 years due to my fear of investing too much. I didn’t invest enough time, money and energy in this webshop so of course it failed. But I never regretted it because this was all experience for me.

Guiding Others: Friends and those around me noticed my growth and began seeking my guidance. Little did I know at the time that I was walking a 33 life path. Life path 33 is the path of 'The Master Teacher'/'The Influencer'. People born with a 33 life path are here to influence, teach and guide others. At the time I started offering tarot & oracle readings every now and then, initially feeling uncomfortable with the idea. While the readings were accurate and helpful, I realised that my true calling is to inspire and empower others. I started writing articles and Nova Light Warrior was born to provide knowledge, information, and tools that would enable individuals to become the best versions of themselves. Eventually the website became more of a small blog because my main priority lied with my company Nova Visuals.

Nova: You may have been thinking, "why did you name all your businesses 'Nova ...'?". Well, one day I experienced something quite strange. I was in a state between sleep and wakefulness while lying in my bed when suddenly, I heard a gentle whisper in my ear—a woman's voice softly whispering, "Nova" in mij ear. I almost became obsessed with trying to find the meaning behind this soft whisper. Then it struck me that I had been searching for a new business name for a while. It was in that moment that I came up with the name 'Nova Visuals,' and naturally, my other ventures sprouted from there.

Political Freedom Party: Due to my freedom loving spirit I became very vocal from 2020 onwards. This led me to connect to a lot of likeminded freedom-loving individuals. When the local elections were announced in my city, I got together with several others and we started our own libertarian-minded political freedom party. For 2,5 months I worked tirelessly to create all the visuals, content and website for the upcoming elections. It took everything out of me but we made it! During the elections we managed to get a seat within the city council and I was appointed as an extraordinary fraction member. Never in my life would I have thought to enter politics. There was “No way in hell!” I said to myself. But I did it. For 10 months I was debating with politicians and visiting local events. In December 2022 I decided to quit because I am an introvert, and this job meant that I had to do a lot of socialising. So I stepped down but am still supporting the party behind the scenes.

Ecstatic Dance: In 2019 I started dancing again, I decided to take salsa classes to get more in touch with my feminine side. After a year the 'pandemic' started and partner dance wasn't allowed anymore so I did Afro House until all dance classes were cancelled. This is when I discovered Ecstatic Dance and I started dancing in my living room every day. Early 2022 I joined Ecstatic Dance Amersfoort as a volunteer and space holder and received training to become an Ecstatic Dance Facilitator. I've now hosted a couple of evenings and i'm planning to keep growing within the world of Ecstatic Dance. Once a dancer... always a dancer.

Embodiment: In December 2022 I quit my business. For the past years my business was struggling and I didn’t understand why because people loved my work. I started noticing that my body was rejecting computerwork. My body just said no and all I wanted to do was to close my laptop. My business was built around the computer. If I didn’t sit behind the computer, I wasn’t able to make money. So I decided to make some drastic changes. I started learning how to sew, crafting, learning astrology and herbalism and thought about opening an Etsy store. For the first 8 months of 2023 I was still struggling with finding a new form. It was a very long birthing process. Eventually I started building the company you see before you now.

Present & Future: I'm currently facilitating more ecstatic dance events, studying to become a herbalist and i've also been studying mystic astrology, vedic astrology and looking into medical astrology. Eclectic Soul Expressions is a culmination of my entire life’s journey. It's my spiritual side combined with my creative side, it’s my digital work combined with physical items. It is the ultimate creative expression of my being and is therefore a truly unique one-of-a-kind business. I’ve created this business so that it can evolve with me as I continue to transform. I therefore invite you to join me on this transformative voyage of self-discovery, creativity, and holistic living.

With Love, Sylvia
