"I help women around the globe get their lives and businesses on Purpose through embodying Purpose, Presence and Profit"
—Luanne Mareen, Global Goddess Gatherer, Divine Business Mentor & Goddess on Purpose
Let me take you back a decade or so…
I was 27 and was working at one of my many jobs (variety is the spice of life so they say).
I was on the path of preparing for the soon to be married life, when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. That was a major wake-up call that lead me in my path of why do I have this, what’s really important, why am I here, what’s my purpose.
Then the miracles began…
My first miracle was that I survived a catastrophic multi car crash, almost being rolled over by a truck because the anti-tumour medication made my so groggy—my body couldn’t handle it. The car was a total wreck. I opened the door and got out without a single scratch. That’s when I realized that there was a higher calling for me. I needed to trust it and take my life into my hands.
My second miracle was my son. After the radio therapy I discovered I was pregnant at 12 weeks. I was facing two risks: one the health of my baby and the other my going blind. I had to make a decision. And that was to pursuit my highest life expression, no matter what. I also decided that I wanted to do whatever I could heal the root cause of the tumor.
The third miracle was that I totally recovered and never looked back. In fact, my health and vibrancy blossomed and I was graced with yet another child—my beautiful baby girl.
There was only one problem…
I was trapped on the treadmill of raising a family and making a living. Being a busy mom of two, I was working very hard growing our family business together with my ex-husband. In fact, I went right back two days after I gave birth to my daughter, feeling guilty if I wasn’t showing in the business helping there and feeling guilty spending time with children.
All of what was important and fulfilling, yet I knew none of it was fulfilling my higher purpose. I was trapped. Whatever spare time I had, I dabbled with various personal growth modalities, seeking for answers, seeking for breakthroughs, something would free me to have it all.
Fast forward to today…
Today I live the life of the Goddess. I giggle a little bit as I write this as she has a funny sense of humor but it is the truth. I had to confront after 13 years of marriage that I had to leave and be really true to who I was. Everybody has their own identity and purpose. After successfully growing and selling our family business I was ready ready to totally immerse myself in a transformational businesses which was so rewarding and exciting.
I have in the last few of years ignited a global Goddess movement that has freed the lives of thousands of women from the shackles of the illusion to pursue their utmost desires and dreams. I have transformed in front of my own eyes from a shy, disempowered wallflower who’s watched other people’s success and happiness from afar, to a feminine juicy leader who inspires even other paradigm shifters, side by side.
After attempting to move to Los Angeles I was called back to Australia in the most “interesting” way – more of that later. I thought I was moving there on a journey of helping even more women re-awaken their Goddess Essence and light up again, in the world.
Then I returned to Melbourne to totally surrender to what the Universe had in mind for me. Did I like it at first ? Did I fight to keep it all together – Yes I did. And then even more changes happened. After successfully running 3 years in a row the Goddess on Purpose yearly events – where hundreds of women (and some intrepid men) joined in for life changing event, I stepped back – guided by all my skills learnt previously and what was the next adventure.
And now the hiatus is over and I declared 2017 the year of Inspiration.
I get to teach, speak, mentor, coach & inspire from this space, while all the time supporting people to truly follow their Life Purpose.
The most important thing in my life are my children. Living by example from a life that was once so busy and go go go – missing important moments, to one now of living fully in the present, creating a lifestyle that I love and where connection, community, love, balance and Purpose is always in my heart.
Always remembering it’s not what you are DOING it’s who you are BEING
