Republished from a few years ago due to a problem with the web-site admin:
I wrote this piece on Saturday, August 10th, when I was on the plane en-route to Harbour Island in the Bahamas where my journey of transformation first began March of 1999. Something spiritual, other worldly, possibly Godly, drew me to the island, as though the island was somehow a part of my life path or Akashic record. I traveled there over three dozen times from March of 1999 through June of 2015, until heading to the sister island of Eleuthera where I went into a cocoon, finally emerging as the butterfly late July of 2019.
Initially, I went to Harbour Island in search of something or someone, as I felt as though a part of me was gravely missing. I felt incomplete, not whole, like I was suffocating inside an invisible box that society, family, friends, enemies, you name it, had crafted and shaped for me. I had felt this incompleteness for many years, even decades, but this was the first time in my life when I really became aware of how it was adversely affecting my well-being and stifling the growth of my soul.
Karis Decides to Take a Huge Leap of Faith, Leaving Her Former Law Partnership
During my March 1999 trip, I made the fated decision to leave my law partnership, a very male-dominated, patriarchal type firm, where I felt as though I was stagnating, both personally and professionally. While I had become the first female partner in the firm’s history, I felt I needed to venture off and grow, to find my wings and fly.
The second day I was on Harbour Island I met a man from Europe who encouraged me to venture into my practice for myself. He was an orphan who was a self-made millionaire, so I trusted that he was guiding me in the right direction. He and I kept contact for several months, but eventually lost contact. Through a miraculous twist of fate, though, I saw him again seventeen years later when I traveled abroad to rescue one of my dogs. You will read about this amazing tale of synchronicity in my upcoming book, GODdogs – The Awakening.
In any event, upon my return home in March of 1999, I finally gathered the courage to leave my former partnership. For the first seven years of my practice, I worked like a mad woman, climbing an illusory pillar, heading toward the top of something, although being uncertain of exactly where I was headed to. My practice literally exploded over night, and I was quickly sitting at the top of my profession with 400-plus cases handled all on my own and six office locations.
