Hi, I’m Karen and I’m so glad that you are here.
My story is probably very similar to your own. A life of ups and downs, trials and tribulations, highs and lows… None of us are exempt from the challenges of life, and yet it’s what we do with them that counts. I am here to remind you that YOU hold the power within your own life, and whatever you desire is yours for the creation or receiving.
My own story is absolutely a testimony to that.
Since a very young age I have always felt that I was here to make a difference in the world. In fact, when I was just 8 years old, I locked myself in my grandmother’s bathroom and prayed to God, “I give my life back to you, do with it what you will” – so it’s fair to say that I woke up pretty young!
Although I had no clue what my ‘mission’ would be, and no-one around me seemed to think like me, my belief held fast throughout my younger years, got somewhat lost during my teens, and then resurfaced with a vengeance during my dark night of the soul in my early 20’s. It was only through having a nervous breakdown at the age of 23 that it became clear to me that it was my time, I was being called, and I simply couldn’t wait a moment longer.
It literally was the breakdown before the breakthrough that so many High Vibrational Women experience in order to wake them up and get them moving.
It was then that everything changed. It was then that I finally surrendered and committed to my soul. If I hadn’t done this, I honestly don’t know where my life would have gone, because I was feeling so lost, alone and directionless, that I had almost lost the will to live.
Yes, it was that serious.
I see now that when we feel this low and this lost, this is when we literally need to reconnect with our soul in a way that we have likely never done before. It literally is a wake-up call, and the stronger the feeling – be it positive or negative – the more important it is that we listen.
Making this pact with myself literally changed everything. I had woken up, I knew that my life really could mean something – not just to me and for me, but for the world at large – and I was ready.
Within a year I had left London and my high-flying career in children’s book publishing, I was living back in the countryside within the beautiful cathedral city of Ely, and I was working in the most perfect place for me at that stage – a really incredible and ahead-of-its-time meditation centre.
This was 1998, one of the most eventful years of my life, and the same year that I took over the running of the UK’s first raw food organisation – The Fresh Network – which I went on to run and expand significantly over the next 8.5 years. This was something that I had dreamed of since 1993, but I never knew how it would ever get to happen.
It still amazes me what that 25 year old me accomplished during that time, including becoming a published author, speaking on huge stages (when public speaking used to literally terrify me!), and creating the UK’s first ever raw food festival.
It was during this time that I truly learned how to follow the guidance of my soul, how to turn my calling into my vocation, and for many years there was literally nowhere else on earth that I would rather be.
Fast-forward to late 2005 and I realised that as amazing as the work we were doing was, there were now plenty of others who were doing it too, and who wanted to do it, and my energy was no longer required to run events, publish magazines, ship mail order products and all the things that I’d been doing since I was 25.
Now I was being called to go solo… (Eeek!)
And so, in September 2006 The Raw Food Coach was born. I launched with just a simple raw food recipe eBook, created my first ever online group program 30 Days to Raw, and within a year I had already trained two groups of men and women from all around the world how to be a raw food coach and how to teach raw food classes.
Of course, so much more happened during this time, but suffice to say, once again I learned that whatever I desired to do, I could make happen…. And yes, even as a single mother.
As long as I listened to the call of my soul, it would not lead me astray. In fact it literally led me to the life of my dreams.
What better guidance system could we ever hope for?
Although raw food seemed to be my biggest calling for many years, it was while coaching people around raw food that I realised that helping people to live their highest possible life got me the most excited of all. After all, what is the point of eating healthily and raising your energy (vibration) if you do nothing with all of that amazing clarity, energy and joie de vivre?
As fabulous as it was, I knew I could help people in so many more ways than simply helping them to go raw, or to create an amazing raw food business of their own.
As a result of this, for years my business mentors encouraged me to go broader than ‘just’ raw food, and to share more of my all-round life and business knowledge via a bigger message, but I simply didn’t know what on earth I would call it!
Finally, in the winter of 2013 I knew it was coming… That familiar sense of something big on the horizon – not yet visible – and an accompanying desire to make a huge amount of space for whatever it might be.
And then in April 2014 The High Vibrational Woman was born, and finally I knew that I had found my place.
And this is the story of how we came to meet here on this delicious, serendipitous day!
And I know that for both of us, the best is yet to come!
