Hi there, so a little bit about me and my story; my name is Karen Rowe, I am a mother of two grown up children in their early 30’s and now grandma to my 3 year old grandson. I live near Cannes in the South of France, self employed as a Health Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist and also a Usui and Angelic Reiki Master.
Now it all may seem very glamorous, living in one of the wealthiest parts of the world and it sure comes at a price, especially being on your own. I don’t know how I do it at times! This is my second time round being in this lovely part of the world.
Back in the 80’s my then boyfriend and I left the UK with nothing but my favourite bean bag, (I must have really loved that bean bag), to start a new life in Antibes, South of France, amongst the yachting industry. We saw a niche for carpet and upholstery cleaning and with my brother who was already living there, we set up, what became a very successful business. It was very difficult and stressful, with French laws, taxes, and the language barrier, but we ploughed through.
My 2 children were born and raised here and despite financial struggle, they had a fabulous upbringing, always outside playing, swimming in the lake or sea.
Then in 2000, due to my marriage break up and personal circumstances, I needed to return to the UK with my children who were then 13 and 10, not a good age to integrate them into a completely different culture, yet they’ve turned out fine. I always knew and prepared myself for the day they finished their education in England that they would return to France and they did.
I was quite happy in the UK in my comfort zone, yet heavily scarred by the events that had taken place, I didn’t see the point anymore of trying to succeed at anything as my deep belief was that it would be snatched out of my hands at the last moment.
Having had our own business, I found it very hard to be employed by anyone else, although I did take the odd job to feel secure with a regular income. I also dabbled in MLM/Direct Sales businesses – yet never had much passion for the cold calling and trying to sell products to family and friends.
Then in 2010 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I somehow knew I would be fine, nevertheless, it was a massive wake up call and to cut a long story short, I decided to return to France at 51 years old and make a final go, be near my children and do what I loved the most which was help other people, especially women get through what I had been through using the holistic therapies I had learnt to heal myself.
I’ve now been back in France 6 years, used up all my resources to be here. I’ve lived on the edge financially, earning just enough to get by each month. I have considered working for another company here but I would be earning less and working more hours. I value my freedom too much – so I put out to the universe, “Show me another way I can earn another income in my free time, create wealth for my future, something I would love and be as passionate about as I am with my therapy work”.
Ask, Believe, Receive: The Universe always delivers!
I was introduced to an amazing opportunity, that allowed me to save and secure my future.
This company also allows you to set up beneficiaries, leaving your gold to your loved ones, I even save gold for my grandson.
It is important that I do something in line with my spiritual self, helping more people globally, yet never in a million years did I envisage having ownership of gold, ‘God’s Money’. You can set up a Free Savings Account or share this opportunity with others, I decided to do the latter as this is allowing me to reach out and help more people than I could ever do 1 – 1 and I still have my time freedom.
Life is good and I am living life with purpose, creating my own reality as we can, once we surrender the belief that we can’t. Being open to all possibilities. I’ve manifested so much good for myself recently, it’s easy to do now I can compare knowing that in the past I was manifesting what I didn’t want, because that was where my focused fearful attention was.
I’ve invested in myself and I work hard and when you love what you do, it no longer becomes work.
