Discover how a doctor, on the verge of retirement, is leveraging on the internet and the law of attraction to create a thriving business and live a life that she loves.
My name is Angelina Dawa and I consider myself a spiritual being having a physical experience as a 58 year young woman, born, bred and living in Kenya.
I am the second born of a family of 4 biological siblings, and have many aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters.
I have been married for 10 years, separated for another 10, divorced for 5 and widowed for almost 5 years now. All to the same man.
I have three lovely daughters who are now young adults living in three different continents in this global village called planet earth.
Professionally, I am a trained medical doctor, a public health specialist and a family physician. Currently, I am nurturing my very exciting digital business, as I prepare to retire from an active clinical practice in the accident and emergency unit of our national referral hospital in Nairobi.
Spiritually, I consider myself a seeker and over the years, I have sought knowledge, skills and meaning of my life experiences, through books…. and now, the internet.
Some of my favorite books include: “The Power of Now” by Erchart Tolle; “Retire Young, Retire Rich” by Robert Kiyosaki; “The Road Less Travelled” by Scott Peck; “Dreams from my Father” by Barack Obama; “Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou; “One day my Soul just Opened up” by Iyanla Vanzart; “Daring Greatly” by Brene Brown; and “Becoming Supernatural” by Dr, Joe Dispenza; among others.
I listen to many audio books and watch various You-tube channels. Abraham Hicks Workshops and Oprah Winfrey Network rank highly in this list.
On Sundays, together with going for Mass and serving as an Extra-Ordinary Eucharistic Minister, I regularly listen to Joel Osten and Bobby Shuller in the Hour of Power.
A favorite quote of mine is: “You are here to enable the Divine Purpose of the Universe to unfold, that’s how important you are” by Erchart Tolle
More About Me:
One of my greatest fears is to come to the end of my physical life having not truly lived. I am thus courageously, authentically and vulnerably so, stepping out to transform the way I live, love, heal, parent and lead.
One evening, when I was about five years old, my mother and I were cooking on a charcoal stove, outside our house. As the meal got ready, she sent me into the house to fetch the serving plate. With a spring in my step and humming a song that we had been singing together, I quickly did as she had asked ….but…. as I turned to come back, a loud angry voice, followed by my mother’s screams, froze me on my tracks. My father had arrived. Later, as I tried to rectify the toppled stove, restore the burning charcoal and pick the spilled meal off the floor, I made a commitment to myself, “I will protect my mum from my dad”.
From that time onward, I tried to always be around when my father came home, in the hope that, my presence would deter him from any violent act. I also tried to ensure that we did not take too long to open the door, and that the food was just as he liked it… among other attempt to avoid tipping him off. Nothing worked. I often found myself physically restraining him as he lashed out. At some point, I decided that I would be a good girl, at home, at school and in church. This, I thought, would make him happy and encourage him to be good to my mum.
Fast forward several years later, I have graduated as a doctor after years of an almost impeccable school and church behavior. I am married (to a man that I thought my dad would approve of) and have two children of my own. One morning, as I prepare to go to work, I receive the information that my mother has died. My worst nightmare has come to pass. She has been killed by my father.
The days that follow this news are a blur. However, as we bury my mum, on the 8th of June 1997, I make another resolution – “I must break the silence of domestic violence”. At the end of my speech at the funeral, I declare the formation of Margaret Wanzuu Foundation, an organization that would give tribute to my mum and that would help me carry out my resolution. In hindsight, this saved my sanity and to a certain extent, helped restore some meaning to my life and that of my siblings.
Having done my master’s degree in public health, I had the tools to nurture the organization in its initial stages. Later, still working in the area of gender and the social-economic-political dynamics of life, I ventured out to work with other organizations too. This I did for a long time, but as fate would have it, after almost 25 years of being away, in December 2013,at the age of 52, I decided to go back to clinical medicine.
I love working with patients, and actually believe that I am a healer. As I get older however, I am more and more convinced that my life has been stunted at a certain trajectory and would like to give myself a chance to transcend this.
I believe that we create our own reality and leveraging on the law of attraction, I want to attract a life that I love – including streams of resources that are not pegged on my day to day interventions. The internet is one such resource and hence my online business.
