Hi, I grew up in the jungle of the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea, observing every day how people had to survive by using their senses. As a child I had to be ‘awake in my own senses’ to the dangers of crocodiles in the river, snakes in the grass, suddenly flooding rivers, or being bitten by a dangerous insect. I was also awake to my senses with the wonderful sounds of rain on the roof, local people dancing and singing at night, smells of the tropical rain and frangipani, exotic tastes of the local fruit and vegetables, the softness of fur on a flying fox and the sight of rainbows and rainforests and brightly coloured butterflies.
Everything changed when my family came to live in New Zealand. The separation from PNG when I left aged 18, and came to a new culture, evolved in me a new understanding of myself. That there was a connection between our senses and identity. This began a journey of discovery that was the genesis of Life Code Matrix.
As a Counsellor and a Life Coach, and through many of the management positions I held in my career, I gained an appreciation of a gap that can exist between who a person is and what they want to achieve. I realised this is connected to our identity. The gap does not become a challenge if we have a strong sense of our own unique identity.
The reason Life Code Matrix was created was my desire to find a way to fill that gap. To build a bridge so people could discover for themselves a true strong sense of identity. Since 2005 I have been privileged to learn and discover alongside thousands of people how our senses tell the incredible story of the very best of who we are. Our senses are the best way to attain and retain a positive strong identity.
