Hello and welcome!
My name is Vaike Alexandra Koiv.
I was a visual artist most of my life. I moved from painting to sculpting, to creating memorial art for people who have lost their pets. As I transitioned from art to personal coaching, tarot showed up. Tarot perfectly bridges art and creativity with the creation of a fabulous life that coaching gives you. I love being able to help people create a life they love, but doing it in a way that is still includes art. It’s an awesome way to be in service!
I live a life I love. Finally. I live with my SO nomadically in the sweetest, darlingest motor home that we are redoing as a Moroccan/gypsy/fantasy vardo wagon. We travel the country as we work. I have created my life in a way that brings me joy. As I write this from a horse ranch where I am spending the summer, I am watching the most extraordinarily beautiful horses roll in the mud, with the setting sun in the background lighting the grasses of 40 acres (yes, muddy horses are beautiful). I never imagined that this was even an option for my life. Once the idea took hold, people started asking me if I was scared, if it felt risky leaving everything and giving up a permanent address. Yes, I felt scared on occasion. But what does that have to do with ANYTHING? When you find your life, when you know what you want, honestly, yes, fear might be there, but it just doesn’t matter. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” becomes something that makes easy sense.
