Soul

Stories of my soul searching and personal growth experiences (the beautiful, the transcendent and the gruesome).

The significance of Mary Magdalene being the first person – and the only one –  to see the risen Christ holds immense symbolism in a world that, two millennia later, still views women as not as valuable as men. I’m not religious, but learning about Mary Magdalene  has helped me connect not just with Christ, but with the feminine face of God, one that I can more intimately relate to, one that empowers and elevates me.

My soul-based Guiding Principles keep me on track to live in empowerment, authenticity, and balance. In this post, I draw upon Joseph Campbell’s hero journey and Maureen Murdock’s heroine’s journey to explain how I arrived at the creation of these principles. There’s a bonus: a magical encounter with a hawk at my window.

November is the one-year anniversary of GlobalJuliana.com. My blog embodies three passions – travel, writing, and spirituality – and is a testament to the transformative 15 months of my mid-life career break. As this blog was born to channel my evolving self-expression, to be featured in “Taking a Career Break for Dummies” feels like the manifestation of a deliberate reconnection with my soul’s desire to be self-expressed and leave a positive legacy for humankind.

Around the 11th month of my intentionally planned career break, I decided to rejoin the workforce. Fueled by confidence in my qualifications and professional networks, I anticipated securing the right job within a conservative three-month timeframe – a miscalculation, as events would prove. The landscape of discouraging job-hunt experiences accumulated, gradually eroding the spirited and empowered self I had forged during my enriching sabbatical. It was my dedication to spiritual and mindfulness practices that shattered the veil of scarcity thinking and negative self-talk. Through them, the tides shifted, and I found work that felt aligned.
