Hi, I’m Juvie, a corporate jungle survivor. In my last gig, I went from non-management to heading global communications for a multinational company with 55,000 employees—within one and a half years. As a result, I mentored many individuals who wanted to do the same. Despite all the “success,” though, I was becoming increasingly happy. It sucked. I wasn’t where I thought I wanted to be and I wanted out. I was successful yet unhappy, in power yet powerless, lost in a world where I didn’t feel I belonged, where I didn’t feel I mattered, and where I had lost myself completely.
The statement, “Everything happens for a reason,” proved to be exactly right in this case. The seemingly devastating events in my life around that time turned out to be the push in the right direction that I needed. I was given the opportunity to go back to who I truly am—the one before I was molded into what I had become.
After I was “divinely removed” from that job, I knew that life as I knew it was over. Something inside me was telling me I was never going back to that world. Still, I tried. I really tried. But apparently, the cosmos had other plans. Literally, I was “asleep” and all of the sudden, I was shaken up, feeling that something was very wrong with my life and I was being pushed to find out what it was. Breadcrumbs of signs after signs led me to a fast-track awakening "adventure." Within a year, reality as I knew it took a 180-degree turn. The undoing of my false self had begun.
It was a journey that re-acquainted me with who I truly am, the way I was born—the one that was buried because of the way I was raised and molded by the physical world; the one who believed what others said about who I was and lived a life chasing a dream that wasn’t my own.
My awakening explained to me perfectly aspects of me that I struggled to understand since childhood and had suppressed my whole life. It led me to accept, embrace and love myself the way I was born into this world--an intuitive being who is meant to help others awaken and reconnect with their true self and their reason for being.
Since you're here, ask yourself why. Perhaps you were led here so you'd tread that path of inner discovery. The question is, are you willing to take on the challenge?
