RiekieV, a passionate Energy Healer, Reiki Master and Course Creator, is on a quest to teach women how to quickly feel more confident in who they are. Unapologetic for what they want from life. And proud of their body and knowledge.
For more than 20 years I have been in victim mode. I let things happen to me and even to my children which I should have stopped. I thought, especially in the beginning years, that if I love my partner enough, he will have to love me back. I willingly gave away my body, my heart and my soul to be trampled. It was only after I removed myself from the toxic relationship and the toxic people in my life that I realized I always had a choice and that I did choose. But that I chose to not act and not stand up for myself. I want other women to know that they don’t have to wait for years and years to make the choice to love themselves first by taking action and responsibility for what is going on in their lives. I want them to know that if I could do this, they can too. – Riekie Opperman

I am the survivor of a toxic, dysfunctional relationship of 20+ years. Although I was a happy and confident young woman, I chose to stay in a relationship of emotional and physical abuse, even though I saw a lot of warning signs from the very beginning. Why? The answer is complex and every now and then another aha moment jumps out at me through my work with women in similar circumstances. The main reasons for me was my religious upbringing and what I thought was right and what was a sin. Also, the belief that if I love someone enough, they will have to love me back, a people-pleasing mentality and a total lack of healthy boundaries.
From this relationship, three beautiful children were born and for many years my excuse/reason for staying was, that it was the best thing I could do for my children. Today I know better.
Then, 13 years ago, there came a moment that I knew I had to let go. It was a critical moment, after a violent episode where I literally thought I was going to die. Once I decided, it took me a few hours to get everything ready to leave as I was living in a very remote area of Namibia and I needed to organize a lift to take me to our nearest airport which was in Livingstone, Zambia. I walked out with a suitcase in one hand and my daughter holding the other. It was the hardest thing I ever did and truth be told, I almost turned around at the airport.
I was broke and broken. I hated my life, my body and my Self.
Yet, it was also the biggest turning point in my life. After a few months, I realized I needed help and I started seeing a psychiatrist and slowly the light started to shine in through the broken places. As the saying goes, “When the student is ready, the master will appear”, and that is exactly what started to happen. I met people who were on alternative healing paths and my life and knowledge expanded. A steep path of spiritual growth started. I qualified as a Reiki Master, learned the art of Qigong healing, and started studying everything I could lay my hands on in the field of Energy Healing. I am a forever student and during the restricted covid time, I studied and qualified as an ICF professional Life Coach. At the moment I am climbing a new learning curve as I decided to shift my focus from working physically 1 on 1 with my clients, to starting an online business in order to reach more clients
