Hi, nice to meet you.

I’m Verena Spilker & I’m here to support you to become your most loving, kind, powerful, authentic, happy, successful, trusting & relaxed self — yet.

I’m a spiritual teacher, self-actualization coach, writer, speaker, explorer, artist, house renovator, dog and plant mum, friend, cook and many other things.

I’ve recently created the Sustainable Business Directory to support female*, non-binary and ally-run businesses worldwide and make all of our lives easier.

I’ve built this website (myself, I used to be a web designer) to connect with you.

I’m a healer at heart, and I practice my gift in the traditional way, which is to help you discover your own healing powers, to meet yourself, to learn to trust yourself completely – so that you don’t have to depend on me or anyone else, but can freely choose who you’d like to collaborate with and how.

To support you on your journey to discovering your true authentic and incredibly powerful self, I offer a great tool, called the Wheel of Colours, which can give you unique insights into how you work and what you need to fully flourish.

And to deepen your understanding of yourself and to practice what it takes to become your true self, I’ve founded the CREATRIX School.

In the CREATRIX School we bring clarity, confidence and connection into all areas of your life – and you can either join as a member or buy the 13 different courses individually.

I’m also always happy to hear from you if you’d like to interview me or have a request about working together and supporting each other. ✹

🌈 You have the power to create your reality.

Start creating the changes you seek.

Confidence Coaching, Success Coaching, Happiness Coaching, Self-Actualization Coaching – I’m here to help you to discover all your superpowers – and if you don’t know if you have any, I’d be happy to show you that you do.

Because we can only create a better world if we believe that we can.

And for that, we have to (re)build the trust in ourselves.

The more you begin to trust yourself, the more your life & the world around you will begin to change for the better.

If you’d like to work with me, you can order your personal Wheel of Colours, book an individual coaching appointment or join the CREATRIX School.

What does Self-Actualization look like in practice?

N

Being able to tap into genius or flow, a state of true knowing, connectedness and creativity, easily.

N

To experience freedom, purpose and joy in every aspect of your life.

N

Being open and able to give and receive unconditional love.

N

To be free of prejudice and judgement, and to forgive easily.

N

To live centred in yourself and in your connection to the universe/god/source/life energy.

N

Knowing and understanding yourself and being able to communicate your needs, desires and boundaries easily.

N

Processing and feeling your feelings so that you have the clarity and the freedom to react to a situation and not to your past.

We are all able to live this way. In fact, this is our most natural state of being.
But through cultural and personal conditioning, trauma, learned limitations and behaviours, we have removed ourselves from this state. Yet, we can come back and fully regain all our powers through deep-inquiry, and living a life true to ourselves – and I’d love to show you how.

Who is Verena Spilker?

If you tell me I can’t do something – I’ll prove you wrong.

– I guess, this is the essence of my life and being in this world.

My entering into this world wasn’t easy. In fact, I died and came back to life, and my understanding is, that this somehow enabled me to be a bit in-between the worlds.

I always understood universal (spiritual) laws, talked to my guides, passed relatives and just couldn’t figure out why the people around me didn’t live a life that would make sense or why they made their lives so complicated.

But as it is when we grow up around people who suppressed their own magic, especially when they believe that suppressing it is the safest way to be, they urge you to suppress it too.

Whenever I said something true, I was told that that’s not how the world works.

Even though it is.

And so, like many, I went on my hero’s journey to find out who I was and why I’m here, and it took me 40 years to make sense of it all.

The moment I could write, I found a pen-friend in a different part of Germany. I even went to visit her on my own was I was eleven or twelve to go to school with her, and it fascinated me to see how school and life worked somewhere else.

The second I learned English, I started writing to people all over the world, we exchanged music (recorded cassette tapes which we mailed around the world) and cut out pages from magazines to learn about each other’s lives and cultures.

I had friends in Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Lithuania, Yemen, France, Ireland, Korea and so many more places – with some I’m still in touch.

One disappeared when the political system changed in her country, and I still sometimes wonder what might have happened to her.

Then I went to the US as an exchange student to go to High School in San Diego when I was 17.

I learned about life on a different continent, in a different family, in a different school.

As a teenager, I had been diagnosed with Epilepsy after some personal tragedies in my family, so I was only allowed to stay there for 6 months because my parents were worried about me and my safety.

But I had this longing to find out who I was in a different setting, and somehow I had picked it up somewhere, that in order to really arrive and integrate somewhere else, you had to stay for at least a year.

And so, after finishing High School, I applied to every organization I could find to go abroad for a full year without having to pay for it.

I ended up in Ukraine – something that changed my life forever.

Now, as life so kindly always had my best interested in mind, I did not get what I wanted, but what I needed.

My idea of leaving was all about being fully independent and free, I was 19 after all.

And, I’m laughing as I’m writing this because, 19-year-old Verena, brought up in the German suburbs, with food from the supermarket, a warm home and running water every day of her life – ends up in a village, with a few hours of electricity a day, an outhouse, an oven and no one near who speaks any of the languages she knew (and I knew three).

At the time, the unemployment rate in Ukraine in that area was 80% and people lived from what they grew in their gardens – so instead of celebrating my freedom and living my independence, I had to find out how to eat and be warm in a place where nothing I knew was relevant in any way.

And what’s even funnier is that, people in Germany were so impressed that I went out there to help these poor people, while ‘these poor people’ in Ukraine thought that I was the poor one because I clearly didn’t have a family who loved me enough to keep me safe and who was careless enough to allow me to go to strange lands without any survival skills.

So they took me in, and I owe a lot of my life to them because I had the privilege to learn about unconditional love and family and community and being there for each other in joy and pain like I could have never learned in the west.

I’m still friends with many, and saw a whole village grow up over the last twenty years, I have four god children from there and a part of my heart will always be in that village in Ukraine, where I first earned about unconditional love.

(I also wrote something about my life there at the beginning of the war, if you’re interested, you can read about that here.)

So, while I had found a major piece of what I was looking for in life in that village, I also knew that it wasn’t all I was looking for, and so I ventured on to go to University in Germany, first in Göttingen and then in Leipzig, to study Cultural Anthropology, Political Sciences and Russian.

University taught me a lot about how to really dive deep into a topic and explore it fully, but most of the important things I find, were again learned in community.

I started a radio show with a friend which I moderated for more than 15 years while living in different cities and hosted it with different friends over the years, I started djing, worked at a record shop and organized parties and events – mostly queer and d.i.y.

I even started my own NGO and cultural platform, which I ran for some years and which again taught me a lot, but being idealistic as I was, I never did this for money and at some point it good too big to be a side project, so I decided to give it up.

After graduating from University, I started working for an NGO, or two really, and in-between I worked for two NGOs in Ukraine as well (I went back for another year before graduating from University and wrote my master thesis there, while volunteering for Roma NGOs there as well) – but what I saw everywhere were burned out people lacking the funds to actually do the work they could and would love to do.

And I, at that point, had no idea what to do about that or how to even begin to change that.

Now, I am someone who is born with special gifts, but I didn’t know that then.

I know many things about people, I can feel their whole life stories around them and why they act how they act and are how they are, and working in an office surrounded by conflicts that were swirling all around was nothing I could do.

So I put two and two together – my web design skills that I had picked up along the way – and my deep wish to help create a more just world, and started freelancing as a web designer for NGOs, organizations and artists.

But the same problems that I noticed when I was working in the NGOs reappeared in my new line of work.

People didn’t believe in themselves or their power to actually create the change they wanted to see.

Everyone was over worked and underpaid – and so was I and everyone else I knew.

We coped and got by. There was work and then there was night-life.

There were our ideals, but no idea how to live up to them.

And at some point I just had enough of that. I didn’t quit everything in a day. At first, I quit alcohol and cigarettes and late nights, then I quit the city and then my job.

I needed a break because I could also see where my life was headed, and it was nowhere nice.

I wasn’t even 40, and I had lost so many friends to suicide or drug related health issues, or cancer, and those who were still alive, and that includes me, were either functioning well and arranged themselves with what was or depressed or both.

No one I knew was happy. And I realized that I had not even ever a met a happy person or someone who was confident and excited about what they did in a believable way.

And while I was studying human behaviour in all its forms all my life, I intensified my research.

At that time, audible thought I was a man in my midlife crises, and started offering me books on how to pick up girls.

Fortunately, I never needed that 😉

But I’m an incredibly good researcher and very stubborn, and I have the strongest will of anyone I’ve ever met.

So I learned all there is to learn about life and how to live it well, because I knew I could do it and as a revolutionizer at heart, I was going to find out and live as the first happy person I knew.

And it was a fascinating journey to go through several moments of enlightenment, to experience the orgasm like full-body joy of it, and to find inner peace.

But I never just did it for myself.

I did it to show that it’s possible for someone who comes from the most normal of all normal places (which basically just means that no one trusts themselves or anyone and everything happens behind closed doors to keep up the pretty picture) to find out what else is possible.

What it feels like to be alive and to create your own life.

To really make up your life from scratch, to discover who you really are and to stray far, far away from the trodden path and the expectations others had for you.

And now I’m here to show you how you can make anything you want in your life possible.

Because once you know who you are and what your true superpowers are, it’s not even that hard.

And it’s even less hard when you have someone who’s already turned everything around to make life work for them by your side.

I’d be thrilled to be that someone for you.

But I have to admit that, like most people, I have a reason for why I do what I do.

I can see people suffering. I can feel it, and I can’t ignore it. And not just people, animals, plants and our planet.

But I can also talk to them and to people’s spirits, so that’s a lot of fun as well.

And in about 30 years of thinking about how to reduce the suffering in this world effectively, I did find an answer.

That answer is as simple as it was difficult to find: The happier each individual person is, the more peaceful our world becomes.

And if you don’t like the term happy, it could also be content, empowered, thriving, feeling grounded and centred, being at peace with who you are in this world and knowing what you need to feel like your best, true and authentic self.

People exploit other people, animals, this earth because they don’t think there’s enough, essentially because they don’t think they are enough.

So, if we begin to find out who we are and what we are here for, we become more and more content and begin to trust ourselves more and more as well.

I don’t offer quick fixes, I invite you to do the deep real, transformative work that lasts and can bring light into all your shadows.

Though often people have incredible breakthroughs, ahas and realizations right away.

And while this work can occasionally be hard, every time we cross a valley we find the most incredible flowers on the other side, that we wouldn’t have dared to even imagine before we started to (re-)discover ourselves.

You have no idea how often I thought it cannot possibly get better than this – it always does.

Looking back at 43 years of life, I’m amazed to see all the things I’ve done, and I’ve learned – while struggling to see the point of my life, battling depression and drinking way too much – since then I’ve cured my epilepsy, my anger, my disappointment and I can’t wait for what’s to come.

The future will bring many changes, we’ve already seen this in the last few years, but the better we know who we are, the more confident we are, the stronger we stand – the easier it will be to make the best out of the change that we are going to see.

Today, I do my work knowing that, not only, can, what I teach and share, transform your life, it will enable you to inspire transformation in many other people as well – because the new you will shine so bright that other people will want to know what you did to become so confident, radiant and wonderfully weird.

 

I offer two things that will help you to get to know yourself better and become more you and with that, more confident, happy and really, whatever you wish to be.

One is the Wheel of Colours, which comes as a 46-page PDF and is something I make individually for each person. It basically translates your subconscious make-up into something that you can use to understand what your gifts and talents, or life lessons are and what you personally need to learn best, to be creative, to collaborate and so on.

The other thing is the CREATRIX School, which helps you bring clarity, confidence and connection into every area of your life. It’s fun, it’s challenging and rewarding 🙂

You can join as a member for a year and get access to all thirteen chapters, or buy and work through each chapter individually.

Surprise yourself. It will be worth it.

🌈 You have the power to create your reality.

Clarity - Confidence - Connection

In the CREATRIX School we bring clarity, confidence and connection into every area of our lives - and we look at a different topic each month.

This month is all about self-actualization, making sure we have no regrets in life, and discovering all we could possibly be and want in life.

It's fun, it's exciting, and it is surely also challenging, as we have to become honest about our wants, needs and desires.

What are yours?

„I had a virtual meeting with Verena, and I felt really safe and comfortable opening up about my struggles with Verena.
She is such a good listener and she shared with me a list of practical and efficient tools/solutions to change my mindset and the way I talk to myself. It was eye-opening. I totally recommend talking to her - her expertise can be a precious resource for everyone!“ - Francesco

"I am at a stage in my life where I can (and want to) make a shift, but struggle envisioning the right direction to take and the action needed. Verena helped me to focus on my desires and what is keeping me stuck. Her approach is sympathetic, calm and down-to earth. It felt like she truly wanted to work with me towards my goals and my wellbeing, through small, concrete steps and kindness. She made me feel more confident, and now the change seems more approachable." – Elena

Verena holds compassion for herself and for me, listens and allows space and treats me as an equal.
She shows up with curiosity & presence, reminds me to listen to what's important to me, suggests simple, manageable practices, giving me concrete things to work with, all in one 60-minute call. Thank you again for this gift! – em

I always admired Verena's ability to bring together people of very diverse backgrounds and give others the space and the freedom to be who they are and to express themselves. It was amazing to watch her transform her life and herself and become much happier in the process. – Corinna

I’m so thankful for the email you sent yesterday about being a conscious digital citizen. 🙂 It really sparked my day and I must have agreed with every word you said [
] maybe even more as I am opening up to start presenting my thoughts and work online to wider audiences, it is so important to be concise about adequate behaviour in the digital world and lead by example 😉 Thank you for reminding me of that! 🙂 😉 – Luisa
