2019 has been a big year for me, I quit law for good and I now call myself a lawyer turned healer & teacher. In my project days in the law firm, it is traditional to make a tombstone to honour the completion of a project. So following that tradition, I made myself an “end of life” tombstone to mark the end to a new Dawn. I am grateful to my 20+ years in the corporate world. In short, my corporate experience provided me with lead to be transformed into gold. I may have ‘left’ the corporate world, but I have not abandoned it. One of my missions is to serve my comrades in the corporate world with my healing and heart-centered practices.
From a young age, I have always wondered on the meaning of life. I would say my committed inner work, meditation, yoga etc “officially” started in 2000, after the sudden death of my mother and a deep relationship which utterly broke me to pieces. The fast pace high stress corporate life does not make things easier.
In my inner journey, I went to happy + scary places. I suffered physical, mental and emotional dis-ease + trauma – depression, anxiety attacks, eating disorder, frozen shoulder.
Looking back now, I am so thankful I persevered on my spiritual quest to find relief + balance; and to feel whole, free + at peace. Because it’s true there is light at the end of the tunnel.
20 years or so later, on one fine winter afternoon by the waterfall, I experienced a profound awakening. No words can fully describe my experience. It was as though a floodgate had opened and for the first time in my life, I arrived ‘Home’. My body became my temple. I reconnected with the ceaseless fountain of Great Love and Wisdom within. The blue sky never looked so blue, and the trees never looked so green, it is as though as I see things with new eyes : clear and vivid like never before.
This deep spiritual shift inspired me, despite fear, resistance and inner struggle, to transition from Chief Legal Counsel to my true calling. This year, after a few years of transition in progress, I am ALL IN! I still struggle at times as the universe continues to tease + challenge me – I had recently turned down 3 job offers – I am biting the bullet & staying on course to my true north.
There is no greater bliss when your true calling = your career = your job. If you are feeling the call to live your true purpose, know that you are not alone! Don’t rush, be patient, and act only on inspired & ripened actions not forced actions. And rest when you feel tired/drained but never give up! And trust- there is a force greater than you and my multiplied working beneath what is visible to the naked eyes!
