Where it all started ...

If you would really know me...

If you would really know me, you would know that I am Lynn Walsemann, an almost 27-year old Dutch woman, who recently graduated from medical school and am now finally ready to call myself a doctor for real. But …. if you would really, really know me, you would know that this is just the tip of my story’s iceberg floating in the sea of life. My upbringing was rough and from an early age on, I decided to take on life myself, leaving the people with few life tools behind. I left home early and focused completely on high school and university. However, being perfectionistic and dealing with the things from the past by getting the best school results possible led to a burn-out. While fighting to get by and finishing university the best way possible, a unique possibility came onto my life path.

On television I saw the ‘If you really knew me’ show, a follow-up on the show ‘Cross the line, that showed that we have more in common than we think by making a deep connection. Doing more research on the company behind this work, I found the website of Be The Change Netherlands, a subsidiary of the American company Challenge Day. Be The Change Netherlands hosted the Be The Change workshop in Holland and I felt so excited immediately. It felt like something strong in me was pulled forward, like something was ignited within me. As Neale Donald Walsh once said: ‘Life begins at the end of your comfort zone’. It was the time for me to step out of my comfort zone, look my past right in the eye and take back the control of my life focusing fully on my goals and dreams. And so I did. I joined the Be The Change workshop given by founders of Challenge Day in the United States of America, Rich & Yvonne Dutra – St. John.

It was an amazing eye-opener for me. I was able to let go of a lot of things of the past and learned a lot of new life tools and skills. I was able to focus completely on myself, my pitfalls, the things I wanted to let go of and learning to stand in my own power. It even felt so good that I decided that this was what life really had in mind for me, this was my true life purpose. After this workshop, I decided to take a break from medical school, going to the United States of America for a couple of months, joining Rich & Yvonne Dutra – St. John in their life work. That’s when I knew it for sure! This is why I came to earth. I just knew that this was meant to be.

In the following years I participated in many more workshops from Rich & Yvonne and travelled to the United States of America a lot. In the summer of 2018 I produced my first Why Have You Come to Earth (WHYCTE) workshop together with them in California. It was amazing, and in 2019 we decided to produce the first WHYCTE workshop in Holland! With an amazing group of people we had a magical week focusing on our true life passion, after which we started a project of a couple months in line with our true life purpose. My project was starting my own company called Awacon (short for Awakening Consciousness), building my own website and being the official producer of all Rich & Yvonne’s workshops in Holland from that moment on. Besides, I kept on producing the WHYCTE workshop in the United States of America as well. Even though this was and is my true life passion, I decided to finish medical school to be able to use my medical experiences into this personal growth work, awakening the world to consciousness with workshops in which one feels safe, loved and celebrated. My dream came true because I dared to step out of my comfort zone, looked myself right in the eye and let go of my past. Something that anyone can do. Are you ready to be the change you wish to see in the world and find your true life passion? The time is now!
