My name is Karen and I am a ZEALOUS kind of girl, one whose heart radiates full of colour, like sunshine pulsating in one’s heart and soul when they are excited eating ice cream on a summer’s day.
I am also a self-confessed Lover of Life and it’s time to Shine my Colours and tell my story because I am here to help Empower you, to connect back to yourself.
My journey has not always seen colour.
My Awakening came from both my life experiences and utilising the energies of many trusted practices & modalities that I offer today.
From the ages of 23-36 I lived with an undiagnosed and unmanaged debilitating rare connective tissue disorder (the glue that holds our organs, tissues and other parts of our bodies together) While my peers were pursuing careers, having babies and thriving. I was basically just surviving. I wasn’t even able to leave my home for a part of that time, most days that passed I was in debilitating pain. I often say it was a bit like what it would feel like if you were to slide down a cheese grater.
I frequently use the analogy that it was like living in a haunted house during that time. Each room was a journey in itself that I had to travel down. As I went down the roads of uncertainty, journeyed on the highways of deep darkness and wandered through the lanes of loneliness and other emotions. I learnt that I had to go in and restore that house and clear out all of the ‘haunted’ vibes.
At times it was a physical & emotional prison. As I went through each room, I realised that they were very important lessons in my life. Without them I would not be who I am today.
Today that old haunted house is my mansion that I now lovingly maintain.
A New Lease on Life
Out of the Darkness came Colour. A new world where my soul & soles were like a jigsaw puzzle, piece by piece I was beginning to feel fully connected.
In hindsight each life event was a special learning curve so that my Journey could fully begin and I could teach, love more and live more
In 2010, I was given a new lease of life after making one of the biggest decisions in life which was to have my bowel rewired with a permanent colostomy, without that operation I can honestly say, that I do not know what would have happened to me. Slowly I have re built my life; re built the foundations of Karen. Over the years I begun to see what lay within, the pillars were there but the modalities taught me how to utilise and learn to reach inwards for strength and everything else that was needed at the given time.
Today I am digesting life again and my soul and heart are so humbly grateful for being able to place my soles on the bitumen every day and feel the sun on my body and for being alive and having a life once again. My life may not be perfect in the eyes of some, but I thank the universe for all that I have and all that I have become because of my Journey.
My Life Mantra is
"Out of Darkness comes Colour"
We can change, we can move through anything! No matter how much darkness you have seen, know that there is colour beyond the darkness!
My Life Mantra is “Out of Darkness comes Colour”.
My Resilient New road
My new road is about resiliently moving forward, helping others using both my life experience
and qualifications in many fields to humbly serve others.
Thank you for being a part of my life.
Together we can walk to a place where you will re-connect back to yourself despite what has happened to you and "Colour Your Life"!
