My Origin Story

A Symphony of Contrasts, Dreams, and Uncharted Joy

Welcome, dear souls, to the intricate tapestry of my life's journey, an odyssey marked by the harmonious interplay of paradoxes, the ethereal allure of dreams, the enchantment of music, and the relentless pursuit of unbridled joy. ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ’ซ

Conceived under the Southern Cross, in the heart of Canberra, Australia, I emerged into a world where contrasts danced like poetic verses. My parents, young, starry-eyed and free-spirited, hailed from distant realms - my mother, a Lapland priestess, and my father, a wild-child of the Australian sun. Yin and yang, hot and cold, a harmonious discord of characteristics and cultures, all intertwined in my very being. ๐ŸŒ…โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

From a tender age, I became a dreamweaver, exploring other worlds in the realm of slumber. With curious fingers, I wove tapestries of thought and imagination, shaping alternate realities in my mind's eye. ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ’ญ

In the vibrant tapestry of my youth, I revelled in the joys of soccer and BMX, the graceful art of gymnastics, and the rhythmic cadence of roller-skating - the emotional roller-coaster of the '80s infused my days with a good measure of challenge and vivacity. ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธโšฝ๐ŸŽต

An empath by nature, I carried the world's sorrows as my own, seeking solace in lending a compassionate hand. My path unfurled as a beacon of kindness, propelling me to the roles of school captain and high school president. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–

The enchanting notes of music whispered sweet secrets in my ears from the age of six. The Canberra School of Music became my sanctuary, nurturing the seeds of melodic passion that blossomed into soul-stirring compositions. ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŒบ

A pivotal chapter led me to the rugged embrace of the bush on the NSW South Coast, where I nurtured an intimate bond with nature's simplicity. A needed healer and guide for me at a time with increased challenges to navigate. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒ„

Universities beckoned, Central Queensland Conservatorium and Southern Cross University, to be precise, where I embarked on a voyage of musical exploration. With a good dose of university shenanigans coupled with focus and dedication, I claimed a diploma and a bachelor's degree, and was graced with the university's composition award for two consecutive years. ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŒŸ

Yet, within the echoes of academic pursuit, I discovered my heart's boundless empathy, absorbing the world's emotions as my own. Thus, my odyssey into self-discovery began, fuelled by reflection, the dance of journaling, and the eternal melody of song writing. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ“

The European horizon called, and I, like a wandering minstrel, journeyed to chase the dream of becoming a touring musician. What was intended as a mere six-month sojourn evolved into 14 transformative years across Europe, with home bases in Germany and the UK. ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŽธ

With my soul as my compass, I serenaded thousands under the stage lights - a soloist, a duo, a trio, and even as the lead singer of Dissidenten, a renowned world music ensemble. I won an EMI song writing competition in Berlin, while music bridged language barriers, touching hearts far and wide while enabling me to have an outlet for my heartโ€™s joys and pains. ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽตโœจ

Amidst the rhythm of my musical life, a yearning emerged to craft a tale that would inspire others to follow their heart's joy. From the heart of a centuries-old cottage in Forest Row, Sussex, "November Fox - Following Joy" was born, a tale of a vegan empath orphaned rockstar, embarking on a celestial odyssey. ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒŸ

Five years of tireless devotion in my pink dressing gown ensued, a true labour of love. In the midst of my creative voyage, I bestowed the gift of music education upon eager learners, teaching the art of guitar to sustain my own artistic pilgrimage. ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ“š

The magnetic pull of Australia's homeland tugged at my soul, and I answered with grace, taking on the mantle of Chief Marketing Officer for Mini Maestros, a bastion of musical enlightenment for the youngest of hearts. ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ’•

In the fertile gardens of creativity, I sowed the seeds of conscious fiction, birthing my own publishing venture, "Conscious Fiction," where stories bloom as keys to awaken young minds and hearts. ๐Ÿ“–๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŸ

My quest for nurturing kindred spirits led me to establish "IN VEGANS WE TRUST," a testament to shared values, only to re-evaluate and close the chapter when I sensed my energy spreading too thin. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ™

With an unwavering focus, I turned my attention to fellow empaths, their needs close to my heart. Out of this empathy, "The 123 Theory" was born, a guiding light for those who feel deeply, an instrument to protect their energy, define boundaries, and uphold wellbeing. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐ŸŒŸ

The tale of "The 123 Theory" began in my youth, a powerful tool I honed to transform my life. It revolves around three sacred tenets: self-wellbeing, harmonious relationships, and sharing our unique gifts with the world. In this, I unearthed the power to heal, attract the positive, and fulfill my life's purpose. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’–

I unveiled these soul-nurturing truths through TikTok, and my "Empath Unplugged" podcast, and the pages of my book, "The 123 Theory." Their echoes resonate with fellow empaths discovering their path to a life of holistic well-being. ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ

And now, I invite you to explore the sanctum of the "Empath Emporium," a repository of high-vibe furnishings and home decor, curated to elevate your space and infuse it with positivity and serenity. ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿก

As I reside on a semi-tropical isle in Queensland, the whispers of a secret project stir in the wind. A haven for naughty pixies and kindred spirits, a place for healthy hedonists to reflect, grow, and rejoice, unfolds on the horizon. โœจ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿคซ

In this moment, my heart brims with gratitude. My life now sings with vibrant health and boundless joy, weaving a tapestry of mutuality, positivity, and inspiration. I share these sacred lessons and raise vibrations, for following joy has become my sacred anthem. ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŒ 

In the tapestry of my life, "The 123 Theory" guides my steps, warding off the shadows of those with excessive narcissism, weaving strong boundaries, and lighting the way to our highest potential. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ“œ๐ŸŒŸ

Step into my garden of creativity, where each day, I plant seeds of positivity, weed out negativity, and follow the tune of joy. Join me, and together, we'll make the world more radiant and beautiful for all. ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’–

This is my origin tale so far - an opus of love and contradictions.

The 123 Theory.

An Empath's Guide to Thrive in Life, Love & Work

Empaths are people who can feel and understand the emotions of others. They have a gift of compassion and empathy, but they also face many challenges in life.

One of them is how to balance their own needs and energy with those of others.

That's why I created "The 123 Theory", a blueprint for empaths who want to tap into their wellspring of love and energy and live a sustainable and fulfilling life. The 123 Theory is based on three simple steps:

1. Put yourself first.

This means taking care of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It also means setting healthy boundaries and saying no to energy vampires, narcissists and people who drain you. You are not selfish for doing this. You are honouring your worth and your purpose.

2. Connect with others who support you.

This means finding your tribe of like-minded empaths who understand you and appreciate you. It also means having relationships that are mutually beneficial and respectful. You are not alone in this journey. You are part of a community of superheroes.

3. Share your gifts with the world.

This means using your empathy and compassion to make a positive difference in the lives of others. It also means expressing your creativity and passion in whatever way you choose. You are not limited by your sensitivity. You are empowered by it.ย 

I know this works because I have used it in my own life. I used to be a struggling empath who felt exhausted, used and burned out by giving too much to others and not enough to myself.

But after applying the 123 Theory, I transformed my life and became an amazon best seller, children's book author, empath coach, podcaster, musician and wellbeing event space owner.

Now I help other empaths to do the same.

If you want to use the blueprint to thrive as an empath, I invite you to read or listen to The 123 Theory, and book in a 121 coaching session with me where I will teach you everything you need to know about the 123 Theory and how to apply it in your life.

You deserve to live a life of joy, abundance and purpose.

You are a super empath.ย 

And the world needs you to thrive.
