My story

Living in the Netherlands; born in Czechoslovakia, behind the Iron Curtain, while developing into a free spirit and thinker. My main and most important inspiration was my grandmother. From her, I learned respect for nature and all living things. From her, I learned that every person has the right to their own way of life, faith and development. She was a very compassionate, intelligent woman. With her, I experienced unconditional love. Both my parents are and were free spirits and despite the political curcumstances then, they followed their path with their head high.

When I grew up and was able to stand on my own feet, I mostly experienced a conditional love. And it always amazed me and made me doubt: were other people not capable of love? Were all people living behind a mask? It was a strange and a clear image at the same time. I was on my own and I was getting used to it.

Until some years ago... it changed. Through an unexpected encounter, through a synchronicity, it can happen that we come across someone who shakes us completely, who wakes us up. It was a kind of slumbering existence I was leading. Productive, yet loveless. Not counting the conditional love you get if you meet other people's expectations.

This beautiful encounter had changed my life forever. And for that I am grateful.

My professional life is dedicated to helping exceptionally gifted children and adults to be and stay themselves. There’s still far too little of the right attention being paid to the diversity among people. The result is that many highly gifted children are wrongly assessed and end up in the wrong place. All people need skills to live their lives as they want to and to be who they want to be.

It was never the intention that I should change the world all on my own. It’s my intention to help the world change by helping exceptionally gifted people to be themselves. That way, we can have an impact on the whole together and make our planet a better place for everyone.

When I look back on how my life has gone up till now, being able to be my authentic self seems to be a common thread. It’s expressed in my work, in which I always try to be progressive and innovative and it’s expressed in my private life as well as in my writings and art. I want to inspire people to dare to be themselves, to rediscover their inner child and to live according to their authenticity.

The most satisfying experience is being yourself and creating while free from the societal limitations and judgements of others. And I wish everyone to be able to do just that!

Experiencing the reality

The poetry and photography book was born quite spontaneously, it erupted from the innermost corners of my soul. It is a document of my personal development over the past few years. It is a development from a free mind to an even freer mind, to an infinite experience of the world.

How is that possible? By finding yourself, by seeing yourself through the eyes of your beloved, by realizing that you are totally perfect exactly as you have always been. You only have to scrape off the layers of your conditioning, of your beliefs, seeped into your core by the centuries of unconscious habits and opinions of others.

I realized then that the life I was living was not yet quite as free as I thought. The unconscious opinions of others were pressed on me and influenced my behavior and actions. You have to become conscious of it, someone has to nudge you or you have to realize it on your own, mostly through an intense event, like an illness or death of someone you love.

My poems and thoughts are based on love and freedom. It is my voice you hear and it is the voice of the universe as well. You can hear the voice of the universe, of the divine, yourself. When you still your mind, when you use your intelligence as it should be used - for your own sake, to feel yourself, to find yourself and to become yourself. Again.

Where the Eagles Fly

by Renata Hamsikova

I met him totally unprepared.
My eagle.
Felt familiar the very first moment.
Felt familiar the second moment.
Has felt familiar ever since.
Saw him while flying on my own route.
Another Eagle? This high? This very high?
Couldn't believe it at first.
As long as I have lived, I assumed that I was the only one, the only eagle flying through this life.
The surprise to see him, another eagle, the same kind, the same spirit, the same class... Not extinct..
This disclosure took my breath away.
I could have never imagined we would be flying together, next to each other.
But we do.
Two souls in love.
