About Me: 

Namaste beautiful people,

I am very excited that I have joined this community!

I have always dreamed of making a difference to this world...standing up for justice...peace...human rights...which is why I studied law...

However my journey has not turned out to be very straight forward. Years later and despite holding a few law degrees I have found myself off track - working as contracts manager with a focus on Intellectual Property. Missing the flow..the spark..the joy!
Why did I manouvre myself into a cul-de-sac? To the point where I came to regret that I ever studied law...thinking that there are so many more "exciting" things I could do in life. Asking myself why I never ended up focusing on human rights law...or environmental law despite the fact that my soul was crying out about violence against it?? Well, I eventually realised that my conditioned Ego kept firing self-defeating messages..."how would I be able to make a difference in this world"..."I am just such a small drop in the ocean"... "You have to focus on making money"..."what would you father think about you standing up for issues he does not believe in"...etc!!!

Then the universe decided I was ready to embark on my spiritual path. It has taken me through intense journeys within myself...facing my shadow...trauma...low self-esteem...and being blessed with waves of consciousness...the feeling of deep connection...of the love and light within myself.

I have set in transformational circles with inspirational women who taught me how to empower myself...how to believe in myself and find my soul's purpose. I connected deeply with my soul and asked what it is that brings me joy and what it is that breaks my heart. I have realised that I am passionate about wanting to make a difference for sentient beings on this planet. It breaks my heart to see violence against children and women, torture & exploitation, families that do not live in a safe environment and have to constantly fear for their lives (be it because of violence or lack of food).

So, I finally decided that I will no longer just passively watch this happening, but that I will alter the course of my career and study again. I will be doing a Master in human rights law starting in March next year. I have to stand up. I have to join the community of inspirational people whose voices are heard and who do manifest change.

I want to get involved. I want to do good. I want to get engaged with other inspirational people. I want to hear their stories, channel, integrate and manifest them as best as I can.
