I was a lucid dreamer from when I was a child. I could control my dreams and explore different realities. I also loved playing soccer, riding my BMX, doing gymnastics, listening to music and roller-skating - it was the 80's after all! I also loved caring for animals. I became vegetarian at 10 and vegan at 21. I haven't eaten animal friends for 35 years.
I was an empath and sensitive person from day one. I could feel what others felt and wanted to help them. I became the school captain of primary then president of high school, I think due to my empathy and kindness towards fellow humans.
I studied music for an hour a day from the age of 6 with the Canberra school of music and turned to song writing as a way to express my emotions at 13. Music was and has always been my passion and my outlet.
I moved to live in the bush with my father for high school on the south coast of NSW. There I learned to appreciate nature and simplicity. I went to two universities: Central Queensland Conservatorium and Southern Cross University to study music composition. I achieved a diploma and a bachelor of arts and won the university award for composition two years in a row.
At university, I realised I lacked boundaries and took on other people's emotions as my own. I started a self-development quest to understand myself and my place within the universe. I read books, meditated, journaled and continued song writing.
I moved to Europe to follow my dream of being a touring musician playing original songs about love and life. I planned to stay 6 months and stayed 14 years in Germany and the UK and toured extensively all over Europe. With my solo, duo, and trio projects and as the lead singer of Dissidenten, a famous world music band. I won an EMI songwriting contest in Berlin. It was an amazing experience playing in front of thousands of people in venues and festivals large and small and on TV and radio. I learned how music is a thread that traverses all cultures and speaks to the heart, even when the language isn't understood.
I've always felt a strong connection to music and creativity, and a desire to help others through my gifts. That's why after moving to the UK and inro a 500 year old heritage cottage covered in vines in Forest Row in Sussex, I decided to write a novel that would inspire people to follow their joy and explore the dimensions of consciousness. My novel, "November Fox - Following Joy", is about a vegan empath orphaned rockstar who finds a mysterious teleporting cube on her doorstep and embarks on an interdimensional adventure.
Writing a novel was not easy. It took me five years of dedication and passion, while I also taught guitar to support myself. I had lived in Europe for 14 years, but I felt the call to return to my homeland of Australia. There, I became the Chief Marketing Officer for Mini Maestros, Australia's longest running provider of music lessons for babies to 5 year olds. I still love this role, as it allows me to share my love of music with the next generation.
I also started writing children's books and founded my own publishing house, "Conscious Fiction". I wanted to create stories that would awaken the imagination and the intuition of young readers. I also launched a company called "IN VEGANS WE TRUST", but I had to close it after two years when I realised I was spreading myself too thin.
I decided to focus my time and energy on supporting empaths like me. Empaths are people who feel deeply and can sense the emotions and energies of others. This can be a blessing, but also a challenge. Empaths need to learn how to protect their energy, set boundaries, and balance their wellbeing. That's why I created the 123 Theory, a simple method that helped me transform my life.
I developed the 123 Theory back in my 20s, when I was struggling with relationships, health, and happiness. The 123 Theory is based on three principles: 1) Your own wellbeing, 2) mutually beneficial relationships, and 3) Positively contributing your skills and passions with the world. By applying these principles to every aspect of my life, I was able to heal myself, attract positive people and opportunities, and fulfil my purpose.
I started sharing the 123 Theory with others through my TikTok channel, my podcast "Empath Unplugged", and my book The 123 Theory. The response has been amazing. I love hearing from fellow empaths who tell me how the 123 Theory has helped them improve their lives and raise their vibrations.
My most recent project is my high-vibe furniture and home décor store for sensitive souls, "Empath Emporium". I believe that our environment affects our energy, and that we can create spaces that support our wellbeing and happiness. Empath Emporium offers products that are hand-picked by me to help elevate your home sanctuary.
I have moved to a semi-tropical island in Queensland, Australia, where I'm building my forever home and an event space next door. I can't reveal too much about it yet, as it's a secret project. But I can tell you that it will be a place where empaths, vegans and kind people can come together, learn, grow, and have fun.
I'm so grateful for the life I have now. I feel holistically healthy and happy, I have mutually beneficial relationships, and I spend my time positively contributing to others. I raise my own vibrations on a daily basis and help others do the same. This is what following joy means to me.
I have my 123 Theory that guides me in life, love and work. It helps me avoid relationships with narcissists, maintain healthy boundaries and pursue my goals. I want to share this theory with other empaths who struggle to thrive in a chaotic world. I want them to raise their vibration and inspire others to do the same. I believe that our subconscious mind is like a neutral soil that grows whatever we plant in it. That's why I try to plant positive seeds every day, weed out the negative ones and follow my joy. I invite you to explore my creative life garden on my website, where you can find various expressions of my intention to help others shine brighter from within. I hope you will discover something that resonates with your own joy and makes the world more radiant for all.
That's my origin story so far. It's a story of contrasts, dreams, music and following joy.
