General History
The Master was born in the south of Peninsular Malaysia. Her father was an English lecturer while her mother was teaching Home Science. She began attending nursery school at the age of 2 and few years later when her family moved up north, the Master was enrolled in an all-girls Convent school.

After completing her Year 6 (aged 12) education there, she left Malaysia to join her father in Brunei Darussalam. The Master continued her studies in a local government school located in the outskirts of the city for awhile before she was enrolled in an international school later.

The Master had a strong affinity for Music and the Performing Arts, but her interest in them was not deemed "realistic" and was therefore not encouraged to pursue her studies in those fields. Possessing a strong character of righteousness since childhood, the Master subsequently chose to read Law. She returned to Malaysia for her A-Levels and later on, went abroad to the United Kingdom to complete her Law degree in the University of Hull. A strong proponent for natural living, the Master subsequently continued her postgraduate studies in Alternative Medicines in India and began to serve the poor in the rural villages that have little to no access to medicine and education by providing free treatment and education.

Early Spiritual Life
The Master's father, who has great interest in spirituality, was actively involved in meditation practices even before she was born. Observing her father meditating, the young Master often asked if she could join him, a request that was always declined with the excuse that she was far too young. The little girl often locked herself in the room and meditated on her own without her parents' knowledge. Even without being taught how to meditate, the young Master was guided from within to be one with the breath.

At school, she used to describe to her classmates her visions and out-of-body experiences. She spoke to them about the philosophy of spirituality, beings from other dimensions, the fourth-dimensional plane, past lives, reincarnation and more. Some received the revelations well while some did not. A few even thought that the Master was out of her mind to utter such "nonsense".

One of the most interesting stories that the Master has shared with her śiṣyas is about her telling her young classmates regarding the cycle of birth and death. A young girl in the Master's class could not understand the idea and so, the Master simply told her that "we have all died before and we are born again into these bodies." Unable to comprehend the authenticity of the young Master's statement, the girl complained to the teacher and the young Master got into trouble for it.

There were some however, who really believed in the young Master's words. She could correctly tell them the examination rankings that they were going to get in class even before results came out. The things she has said about their future paths were also proven to be true many years later.

However, the Master's spiritual experiences were not always well-received by others. They simply could not understand the words of the young Master. After moving to Brunei, the young girl learned to keep her experiences to herself. Later, she moved to a rural village, surrounded by nature, in Brunei Darussalam. The Master always reminds śiṣyas that the plan of the Great White Spirit is always perfect. The environment in Brunei was ideal for the young Genevieve, allowing her to be one with nature so that she delves deeply within to prepare herself for the Mission.

Since a tender age, the Master has always known that she has a Mission that awaits her; a Mission to uplift humanity.

The Beginning as a Spiritual Guide
The Master's role as a spiritual guide began during her varsity days. She became more open about sharing her spiritual wisdom with others at the age of 18. The Master taught youths meditation and Mental Science. She also shared with those who were ready to learn her interpretation of various religious scriptures, including the Bible, Bhagavad Gita, Vedas and Buddhist Sutras. The Master has never stopped ever since.

Serving Humanity
The Master has been providing free voluntary alternative healthcare services (medicinal herbalism, Vibropathy & acupuncture) and free education in the rural villages of India.

She has also spearheaded various humanity service programmes such as the free Chitta Vajra Programme for Kids, which is designed to instill moral education into young children so that they may grow up to serve others and contribute back to society in a positive way. Other programmes include the Women Life Force in Action (WLFiA) programme that helps and support women in the local Malaysian community to stand up for themselves against abuse of any kind. She also founded the PawPrints programme that rescues strays inflicted with diseases to treat them based on the principles of alternative medicines such as acupuncture, medicinal herbalism, homoeopathy etc.
