About the Author
Kitty calls herself a humble messenger of the light whose calling is to write the book being called forth by humanity for humanity.
She is a gifted storyteller who grew up in Italy, France, U.S.A and Australia. She has been teaching health and wellbeing for over 30 years in schools and communities in Australia, United Kingdom and Nepal. She also lectured at the University of Sydney in the Faculty of Education for 6 years. Kitty’s life-long mission is to discover what she is at her core and live aligned to that. This yearning led her on a path of self-discovery. When she realised her impact could reach further she left teaching to translate decades of personal development insights into engaging, empowering and easy to read stories.
She inspires anyone longing to create a life aligned to their highest potential. This book is full of her awakening stories. These created the necessary catalysts to live evolved. She hopes that by sharing her experiences readers might deep dive into their unique catalyst stories to uncover their true essence. At first deliberate choices are made to live aligned to this essence but eventually new habits are formed and life spontaneously flows through an evolved way of being.
For 40 years she has journeyed to remember what she is at her core. During her quest, she explored the formal corridors of the academic world of The University of Sydney where she studied for four years and later lectured for six years in the Faculty of Education. At the same time, she was exploring the informal corridors of her mind and heart to discover her true essence.
Kitty has wanted to write a book since 2010 when the ending came to her. In 2020 she was compelled to leave her job and dedicate herself to birthing her creative process.
Kitty has been in a loving partnership with her husband for over 25 years and they have raised three happy daughters.
Kitty’s parents met in London, United Kingdom. Dad, an American in pharmaceuticals and mum, a country girl from Central West NSW, Australia who went to boarding school in Sydney. They married there and her dad’s promotion (in charge of Italy and Middle East operations) moved them to Rome, Italy where Kitty and her brother Patrick were born.
The house was often full with her father’s three children: Janet 19, Judy 17 and Bill 11. It was also full of partygoers enjoying the ‘expat’ life. When Kitty was two they moved to Paris (her dad’s company put him in charge of Europe).
When Kitty was four her dad was sent to head office in Indianapolis, Indiana as Vice-President in charge of Central and South America. She frequently visited her older sister in Canada. The first time she flew there Kitty was only eight years old and she and her sister and young baby encountered a horrific mid-air disaster, caused by failed landing gear that led to an emergency landing! The worst part was Kitty had to fly back to the US alone.
In 1981 her dad took early retirement after 32 years with the company. They boarded the Sea Princess and set sail across the South Pacific ocean. Stopping in American Samoa, Vanuatu and Fiji, finishing up in Sydney, Australia. They resided in the Eastern Suburbs but made regular trips back to America and Canada to see relatives and friends.
In 1988 on a family trip through China, Kitty witnessed her father’s joy at visiting the Entombed Warriors, now called the Terracotta Army in Xian just after they were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. He had dreamed of that moment his whole life.
At university the family did a Kakadu safari to explore Aboriginal rock carvings and the natural wonders of the top end of Australia.
Kitty travelled to Bali in Indonesia twice and when she graduated she and a friend backpacked through England, France, Spain and Portugal. After three years teaching in Sydney, Kitty spent seven months backpacking and teaching in India and Nepal before teaching in London and visiting friends in Paris.
Kitty’s mum and dad met her in London. Her parents had planned a trip to the Czech Republic and a boat trip through Russia but her dad got sick. He asked Kitty to take the trip for him. When she returned home to Australia she drove around Australia with her partner of two years.
After six months they stopped and worked in Kalgoorlie, a gold mining town in the Western Australian desert. After two and a half years they decided to backpack around the world for a year.
They spent five months travelling from south India to north India and into Nepal to meet Kitty’s Nepalese family whom she had lived with when she taught there four years earlier. They went to London where they had both previously lived and back to Paris.
Kitty’s partner of 7 years had planned to propose on the top of the Eiffel Tower but they loved Varanasi in India so much that he proposed on a rowboat on the holy River Ganges instead.
After Europe, Kitty and her fiance backpacked around Brazil for four months. After they returned to Australia they ‘settled down’, got married, bought a house in Newtown, Sydney and had two of their three daughters, they took them to Africa for a month via South Africa. They went on safari in Manna Manna Pools in Zimbabwe, went to Victoria Falls and to Zambia.
After Kitty’s dad died her mum kept up the tradition of taking her children’s families on a cruise every 5 years. The first one went around New Zealand. The next one went from Hong Kong to Taiwan to Vietnam to Thailand and finished in Singapore. The last one went to Vanuatu, New Caledonia, New Zealand and back to Sydney.
Travelling has opened the world up to Kitty and motivated her to make the most of her privileges by writing a book that allows others to experience her travels through her stories.
Kitty also made four trips to Seattle, Washington in two years to support her brother and sister-in-law to assist their teenage son to transition.
In 2017, Kitty and her husband spent two weeks in New York to celebrate their anniversary.
Living and working for a year in India/Nepal led her to Buddhism, meditation and yoga. Then a lifestyle ‘tree change’ from Sydney to rural Australia led her to an apprenticeship in Hawaiian and Native American Shamanism. Visits to the southeastern coast of Australia led her to a group of lightworkers with a vision for a new Earth. This inspired her to prepare for this shift by making further life changes. Psychology, philosophy, theology, metaphysics, Reiki, Aboriginal Dreaming all contributed to her transformation which she shares throughout this book.

The Unseen World
As a child, she was connected to the unseen spirit world and sensed she possessed untapped knowledge. From the age of four living in Paris she had an ‘imaginary friend’ that told her things she could not have otherwise known. Growing up in Indianapolis and Sydney she was regularly visited by spirits.
