WELCOME... to the November/December 2013 issue of An Alternative Voice How important is inspiration in our lives? This question came to me after I attended a weekend conference with a number of speakers. All expressing their wide range of knowledge and expertise. The conference ended with a wonderful young man who spoke of his journey to find purpose in his life. He had compiled a list of every experience he wants to achieve. Somewhat like a ‘bucket list’!

DESIGN & LAYOUT

This young man is well on the way to achieving what he has set out to do … and more. Along his life journey he is now helping others to achieve their dreams and generously raising money to help charities. His humour and honesty and the stories he told had the crowd entertained, laughing and crying, and at the end of his talk we were all inspired.

How many times in our own lives have we heard others’ stories which have uplifted our spirit and helped us to motivate ourselves? Inspiration is the feeling of possibility. The feeling that we too can achieve the same success and experiences or utilize the same values in our own lives.

For me, being inspired is a state of being, one which can give us the confidence to try something new. It can give us hope that we too can inspire others … and what a wonderful feeling that is! Having people we aspire to emulate keeps our own hope and dreams alive. Some of those who have inspired me personally include Mahatma Ghandi, the Dalia Lama, Muhammad Ali, Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King. They are people who have inspired others by their achievements and values and still continue to be quoted in inspirational or motivational speeches. We have all experienced inspiration from hearing someone else’s story. Often those who have overcome extreme adversity in their lives will open the hearts of others. People think that if someone can go through such an event and still remain positive then we can still hope. Their values and their attitudes to life can inspire us. Children especially need to be inspired and encouraged to keep focusing on their dreams. Following a conversation we had on the importance of being inspired, and what was it about the people who inspired us personally, my daughter asked me, “What sort of person do you choose”?

My answer to her was, “Someone who speaks to my heart, who resonates with what I believe in”. I then asked her what kind of person inspired her and she replied that it what she found inspiring was someone’s persona, how relaxed in their life they were, how calm they appeared, and how confident they were. What type of person would inspire you? Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them”. Every day I read inspirational quotes like this. They are like little reminders for me, each one containing powerful words of wisdom that give me the inspiration to move into action. And, like everyone, I find that I resonate to certain ones at different points in time. Sometimes we grow up and forget about our dreams and aspirations. So, as this year draws to an end, think about the people, the places, the books you have read and what you see in nature which inspire you. Let yourself be open to be inspired and think about what you may like to achieve in 2014. Start making your own bucket list and, in the words of one inspirational speaker, just do it! This being the last issue for 2013, together with all the Alternative Voice team, I wish everyone a very peaceful and happy festive season and look forward to the New Year!

FESTIVAL IN THE BEAUTIFUL YARRA VALLEY The idea to host this family focused festival was born out of an idea Scott Alexander King and I had when we visited the grounds of the beautiful Deloraine Homestead tucked away in the hills of Victoria’s Yarra Valley. While enjoying the delights of afternoon tea in the stunning gardens we looked around us and decided that this would be an ideal place to have a family festival. Deloraine Homestead is set on 42 glorious acres in what can arguably be called the best part of the Yarra Valley with its commanding position ensuring magnificent views. Scott and I had a vision for a festival which would bring together a host of different exhibitors and practitioners over two weekend days. And so the idea was born! Further planning and discussion resulted in the idea of a weekend with a theme dedicated to fun, freedom and nurturing the soul.

Scott Alexander King

After a healing, a reading or enjoying a demonstration you can take the time to relax on the veranda, have a coffee, and take in the wonderful views. The experience of Delaraine Homestead and the festival starts when you arrive at the front gates and you may even be privileged to see the resident eagles and kangaroos. We will also be showcasing old crafts, felting, spinning, weaving, needle felting, silk painting, shamanic tools and dream catcher making. Goods for sale include beautiful yarns and fibres, dream catcher’s, incense, mandala’s, Wise Old Seeds, Spirited Indulgence products, essences, Young Living Oils, aromatherapy candles, crystal jewellery, hand crafted fairies and goblins, crystals, fresh flowers, books and music and many forms of art and photography. By Roz Tilley.

Scott will be travelling down from his home in New South Wales to attend and will be one of the special guest speakers.

Roz is a self trained tarot reader and channel medium. She currently specializes in geomancy, multi dimensional healing, her Tree of Life readings and art therapy.

There will be live performances, demonstrations and talks all weekend featuring dancing, drumming, meditation, mediumship and music. Healing will be available in specialised forms such as kinesiology, life alignment, energy healing, cranio sacral, hypnotherapy, reiki, bowen for horse and rider and holistic counselling.

WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS TO HAPPINESS? BY GREG RILEY Greg can be contacted through his website www.gregriley.com.au

I’ve previously spoken about being a hero in our lives? But now let’s discuss just what is it that we are all seeking? What is it really? Is it happiness, fulfilment, love, passion or enlightenment? Well it can actually be whatever you want it to be. And these are just different labels for similar things or feelings. Maybe it’s finding our place in life and feeling that when we leave this world we have left a legacy behind us. Or maybe it’s having a strong, loving family and great friends. The real key is, what are the choices you intend to make in your life to achieve the goal of happiness. People often search for things outside themselves to make them happy. Perhaps they think if they buy a certain car or I date a certain person? Or maybe it is thinking that they will achieve spiritual enlightenment if they go to certain spiritual places? This is something that I find quite intriguing. Do you know that you can achieve the same spiritual enlightenment and happiness in your own backyard as you can in the Sedona desert. While it’s great to visit spiritual sites, in reality you don’t actually need to go anywhere. These places can only enhance what is already within you and we can be just as happy at home. Happiness comes from within you, not from the outside.

The human race is a funny species. We say we want to be happy but then explain that we can’t at the moment because this person did this, or my job is like that etc, etc! But what is really going on? These are just situations which are happening and we actually have a choice as to how we will react to them. And it is this choice which results in us being happy or not being happy. This is really what is meant by spirituality. Of course it is usually a little more complicated than this because, as human beings, we must learn to deal with our emotions, but the choice is ours. How do we want to react to this situation? Do we let it control us or do we make the choice to react a certain way about it? This is what it means to be your own hero. What are you doing each day to achieve your own happiness? What do you think it is? How can you achieve this? There is a place within each one of us that holds the answers to our own happiness. And we actually don’t need to go anywhere to find it. Happiness is within reach of all of us if we just stop looking outside ourselves to find it.

HOME THERAPY - ABSORB THE COLOUR OF LIFE BY NARELLE HAW FROM HEALTHY HOMES EXCEPTIONAL LIVING Narelle is a Building Biologist, Feng Shui practitioner and interior stylist

Colour is such a subtle gentle force. A single hue is able to speak to us on many levels, evoking deep emotions and changing the way we think, act and feel. Colour has been used as the basis of holistic healing for thousands of years, to treat physical and emotional imbalances, enhance wellbeing and create real personal change. So why is it that the majority of homes are still bathed in the cool neutral tones of brown and white on white?

It is believed that the person who chooses this colour is granted the ability to comprehend better. This is a great colour for use in an office or study. Orange is associated with creativity. It is a warm, stimulating, fun, and sociable colour which can be employed to help with depression. It is believed to ward off negative influences and attract positive energy. Use small doses of orange in any room to bring joy, lightness and relief.

Your home is sacred spaces – a place to relax, wind down and rejuvenate. Discover how you can change your life with colour. Once you have tapped into its power you will find yourself feeling healthier, stronger, more balanced and empowered.

Red is an energizing colour and represents self-confidence and stamina. Red keeps us awake, stirs our passions, and stimulates us to feel bold, spontaneous and energised.

Purple/violet stimulates intuition and imagination. It is a dignified colour, divine and decadent. Purple heightens our spiritual awareness and sense of purpose. Use shades of purple and violet in areas where you want your creative and artistic qualities to flourish.

Brown is a grounding colour. It is the colour of soil and it’s no coincidence that it is a representation of fertility. Brown is stabilizing and thus enhances foundation. To inspire a resourceful and dependable nature, brown is the colour of choice.

Blue/indigo increases feelings of calmness and peace. It encourages love, honesty, kindness and truth. Blue eases tension and encourages communication. Use shades of blue in areas where you want to be expressive.

Black is the colour of power and authority. It provides protection by inducing a neutral, yet, determined feeling.

Green is a healing colour and represents life and prosperity. It supports balance, harmony and love and aids personal growth. Surround yourself with green to cultivate energy in any area of your life.

White is representative of harmony and idealism. It portrays innocence and positivity. To recover a fresh, clear, mind and balance, surround yourself with white. To find out more about colour therapy and its use within your home contact me on 0408 113 986 or visit www.atharmony.com.au

Yellow is the colour of intellect and happiness. It increases fun, humour, lightness and a feeling of personal power.

THE PURPOSE OF DREAMS Dreams are a gateway to understanding yourself at a deeper, more personal level. Socrates famously said, “A life unexamined is a life not worth living”. Dreams give us the opportunity to do just this, thus gaining insights which cannot be accessed in our conscious lives. Once we gain an understanding of what is happening in our subconscious mind we can then see what issues need to be dealt with in our life. That’s the whole purpose of dreaming – to be able to link our conscious and unconscious mind and freeing ourselves of our preconceived ideas about whom we are. And isn’t that what we all want?

BY ROSE INSERRA

People say to me, “But I don’t dream”. This is not true. We all dream. Even animals experience dreams in the sleep cycle called REM (Rapid Eye Movement). This is the ‘dreaming sleep’. It is when you are in your deepest sleep and it’s almost impossible to wake up from this state. The body is paralysed even though you are mentally active. REM sleep occurs in stages, lasting from ten minutes to one hour, so there may be five cycles of this type of sleep during one night. This is when you dream. The longest uninterrupted REM sleep occurs early in the morning. And dreams during this time are the ones you are most likely to remember. What do dreams mean? There is no definitive answer. Each person’s dream has a personal meaning to them. However there are common dream symbols, and sequences of dreaming events, which we all share. In my Dream Reading Cards, I’ve outlined 22 universal dreams with a list of questions for the reader to answer or ponder.

AN ALTERNATIVE VOICE ~ NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

Many of these common dreams occur during changes in your life. Transitional, or even traumatic events, can bring up volatile emotions which have long lain dormant within you. Stress can release all types of weird, vivid dreams, as can some medications. The most common dream of all is water. Water represents your emotional, creative and spiritual life. If you are swimming, is it in a peaceful sea or a lake? Are you trapped in rapids or in ocean waves? How you cope in these situations will reflect your emotional dramas in real life. But is it any wonder that we dream of water when our emotions are usually held in check in our waking lives. My aim in creating the Dream Reading Cards was that they be both intuitive and insightful. I came up with the design of having a deck split into 22 theme cards and 30 oracle (reading) cards as I wanted to give people the tools which would help them make changes in their lives. Understanding dreams is empowering. Once you learn to interpret the secret messages from your subconscious mind, you will gain valuable insight into your personal life and make the changes you need for the best life you can have.


THE ART & CRAFT OF SPELLCRAFTING The art and craft of spellcasting is an ancient one, with roots which go back for millennia. There are records of spells recorded in the “Egyptian Book of the Dead”, and in today’s modern world, spellcasting is experiencing a revival. I believe the art of spellcasting is manifesting taken to a very high, yet very real and grounded place, where the likelihood of success is greatly amplified because of its holistic approach. A good spell will engage you on every level – physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually, and demands your commitment and participation.

BY LUCY CAVENDISH Australia’s most loved and respected white witch, Lucy (pictured), works magic every single day of her life. Her latest book ‘Spellbound’ is available at selected bookstores and online at www.rockpoolpublishing.com.au

When we truly commit to spellcasting, we are already setting into motion the kind of belief that ensures results. When we work with wisely crafted spells the results are not only swift, tangible and lasting. Some folks feel mistrustful of spells and the craft generally. Understandable, given the propensity of Hollywood to portray spellcasters as reactive, selfish and often filled with malintent. True spellcasters are careful, and very conscious of the work they do. The fear around spellcasting and crafting is extremely limiting. When we work with natural forces in order to change our lives for the better, which is what I know a spell to be, the danger of anything going “wrong” is very small.

We can make mistakes but, if our intent is good, we are protected. The worst that will happen is that it will not work. Spells cast with malintent and coming from an emotionally negative place may have unpleasant results. This is because they are breaking some of the laws of spellcasting. These include the law of the threefold return which reminds us to consider that the energy we send out will be returned to us threefold. Another unbreakable law is that of consent. True spellcasters never cast against the wishes of another person. Love spells, therefore, while popular, are very carefully constructed so as not to harm or influence the free will of another person. True spellcraft and casting is about working deeply with natural forces and laws. Spells are like prayers in action. When spellcasting, we work with the elements – air, fire, water, earth and of course the binding element – spirit. These make our spells powerful, and able to manifest completely into the “real” world. Each element has these multiple aspects, and we work with each of them, according to needs, and according to what we most wish to create. It is this healthy and holistic approach which endows spells with the power to break through the world of the imagined and thought to the world of action, touch, feeling and reality. So the art of casting will, in many ways, be an education in Magick which is grounded in the earth, the Universe, the natural cycles, and this amazing blue and green planet. Our home, which I love!

CYCLING THE CAMINO The Camino de Santiago, known more simply as, The Way, is one of the world’s greatest walking and cycling routes. The 800km journey follows the Camino path of millions of pilgrims. There is a palpable sense of history on the journey and some of Europe’s most magnificent and ornate cathedrals such as the Santiago de Compostela were built along the Camino. There are no shortage of ways to enjoy the Camino. Choosing a mixed walking and cycling trip is to experience the full French Way in a shorter time frame and provides variety to your experience. The walking trails of The Way are also open to cyclists and it is quite an accepted way to experience the pilgrimage. At least 12% of people who complete the Camino de Santiago do so by bike and as the numbers of people increase so do the percentage of cyclists. We believe this is because the Camino de Santiago is one of the world’s most magical rides for its history, variety and spiritual elements. In fact some consider it one of the best long bike routes in the world. Cycling the Camino is not only appealing to people who already enjoy getting out on two wheels - but for those who want to try something new. While a cycling trip can be organised independently, because there are bikes involved, this is not as straight forward as organizing your own walk. There are advantages to cycling rather than walking the Camino and if time is a factor for you then cycling is a great way to reduce the time and cost that walking the Camino requires. Not to mention

AN ALTERNATIVE VOICE An Alternative Voice has a number of free tickets to Melbourne’s Mind Body Spirit Festival to give away.

Even more so than walkers, cyclists should consider planning their trips around the weather and the crowds to avoid Camino chaos. Anytime around a festivity such as Easter and the summer months, the busiest sections on the Camino are Sarria to Santiago. For this reason it makes a lot more sense to plan a cycling trip in May and September to October when there is milder weather and reduced numbers. If you are prepared to cycle around 40-60km per day, you could cover the route from Pamplona to Santiago comfortably in 20 days. And if you are an experienced cyclist looking for a challenge you could happily cycle the full 800km length of the Camino from St Jean over the Pyrenees to Ronvevalle and all the way to Santiago. Local Australian tour operator, Raw Travel in Mornington, provide friendly, personal and expert advice on walking or cycling the Camino. To meet their Camino experts join Raw Travel at their information night on November 12th. You will hear the most up to date information and accurate advice on all aspects of travelling the Camino including the best trails to suit all fitness levels. But bookings are essential so contact them on: 1300 208 245. For more information visit: www.rawtravel.com or their dedicated Camino website www.caminodesantiago.com.au An Alternative Voice

POSSIBILITY, HOPE & PASSION When I focus my attention on life in general, my life in particular and what I want to be doing with this current life right now I know exactly why I am here. It feels truly amazing. Do you know where you are going and why? Knowing the purpose that resonates within your heart and soul is critical to being happy and fulfilled.

There is a wonderful quote which refers to “sliding sideways into home base”. When I am aligned with my passion and purpose, life is joyful and feels just like the thrill of “sliding sideways into home base”. Whilst I am here in this lifetime I intend to be the best that I can. And to help others reach their full potential and take responsibility for their lives. There is an inner satisfaction and contentment in knowing your purpose and taking action towards your goals. This is available to anyone willing to explore and commit to doing what it takes to achieve it. My journey through life and the lessons presented have created a rich tapestry. My choices, both the wise and the disastrous, have brought challenging, rewarding and adventurous times. I searched for years to make sense of it all before realising that the buck stopped right here with me. I had looked for the answers outside of myself. The notion that someone else was at least partially responsible was strongly held.

This belief created much suffering, grief and heartache. Slipping into it was like stepping into quick sand of blame and angst that morphed into rapid set cement. I thought I was right and not responsible for my feelings. As a teenager, despite the hardship stories I told myself, I decided and was determined to create a successful life for myself. I continue to count my blessings for the years spent in a rewarding career where I know I made a difference in the lives of many. Stretching and meeting challenging times has all been a part of this life. And there are more to come. I welcome them and know that without change there is no growth. “Hope is an attitude that things will get better. It is an expectation of success. It is a motivation to keep going. It is an opportunity. It is a candle that will burn long enough for you to make it to the next candle, but if you don’t move, it will burn out and leave you in darkness. The best way for you to renew your hope of things getting better is to make a little progress in that direction. Hope has a short life span if you only hope. What do you dare hope for?” From: The Avatar Path 2: Private Lessons by Harry Palmer. I invite you to take the next step in your life. Call me for a free information hour.

THE JOY OF RESTFUL SLEEP Any mother of a new baby knows the symptoms of being sleep deprived, including fuzzy thinking, an assortment of bruises from walking into door handles and daydreaming about strong coffee. Other life events can also interrupt positive sleep patterns. An extended period of stress at work, ongoing financial issues or a deep loss can also leave a person unable to switch off after a busy day. Soon the new sleep patterns can include waking every two hours, taking up to an hour to fall asleep or feeling hyper vigilant and easily disturbed when sleeping. If you’ve improved your bed, replaced the pillows and linens, had a test for sleep apnoea and still sleep poorly, it may be time to consciously set up more positive sleeping patterns. Establishing new sleep patterns takes time, but the rewards include clearer thinking, better decision making and a more positive attitude to the challenges of the day ahead.

Hypnosis is an effective way to relax the conscious mind and retrain the subconscious. © 2013 Paul Fenton-Smith. Paul has a diploma in clinical hypnotherapy and runs a private practice in Sydney.

Deep, restful sleep does more than give the physical body a chance to heal after a stressful day. It offers the spirit an opportunity to be free of the constraints of the physical world. When the physical body is sleeping, the spirit body can travel off in search of friends, knowledge or spiritual nourishment.

Each time the physical body awakens it summons the spirit body back, sometimes interrupting opportunities for spiritual growth or exploration. Hypnosis is an effective way to relax the conscious mind and retrain the subconscious towards more peaceful, restful sleep. Gradually, as new sleep patterns become positive habits, you can reap the physical and spiritual benefits. When Erica’s cold turned into something more serious, she was hospitalised. Caring for her ageing mother at home for nearly three years had weakened her. The ongoing stress of being half-awake each night to respond immediately to her mother meant Erica had barely slept for years. These poor sleeping patterns had become entrenched so when Erica was finally free to sleep at will, she still woke every hour. After several hypnosis sessions, Erica proudly declared that she had slept through the night every night for almost a week, something she couldn’t remember last doing. Gradually the colour returned to her face, and she no longer worried whether she’d sleep through the night. I began to notice that many of my clients over 50 didn’t expect to sleep through the night. Eventually this became the case for many clients over 40, as the stress of raising a family, managing a career and juggling finances took their toll. It was only as I approached 50 that I knew what they were experiencing. I reset my sleeping patterns and the result was deep, relaxing sleep each night.

20 March – 19 April

22 December – 19 January

The pressure to react to authority figures and maybe to make some changes in your working life is heightened. It will work out in your favor but take care not to overreact and spoil it. You will be increasingly ‘on the move’ and need all your physical or emotional energy.

Your loved ones are under tension and not being recognized for what they do. They will soon receive the help they need. There are plans you will eventually change, but not just at the moment, so stay flexible. Open yourself to different information about any health issues or healthy lifestyle choices.

Your loved ones will be restless and need some freedom from home and family concerns. Help them to make changes. You, on the other hand, will find solace and peace at home. Money issues will bite. In December Mars will enter Libra and push you into action. So have a plan.

Your loved ones are either being kept in the dark, changing their mind, or keeping news to themselves. Sometimes delays are for the better - for them as well as you. Then in December it is a perfect time to let go and release what you don’t need. Holding on achieves nothing.

You may be still reeling from money issues or an unexpected, or rash, expense. But there will be time to set it right. People in the workplace will make different assumptions than you. In December be prepared to make snap decisions - and be creative and daring!

A significant shift happens as Mercury, the planet of communication, turns and goes forward in your sign. Any decisions made while it was backwards will need to be revised. People will look to you for guidance. In December adjust your long term plans to be in line with your new goals.

You will soon know what is going on. Speak slowly or write things down, as you will be easily misunderstood. You may be called to defend your position so have your point of view carefully prepared. In December you will have a spirit of adventure and a desire for something new.

Tried to do something and it didn’t work out? Now it will. When you apply yourself to dedicated work you will gain success. Get a system in place. In December there is a renewed energy in connecting to others and taking responsibility for your health.

If you are still smarting from a misunderstanding I suggest a tonic called, ‘get over it’! Communication will soon improve. Have the last word and say sorry. Let a pleasant event clear the air. Delay making decisions. And later in the season allow yourself to have some rest time!

Will the money spread wide enough? You want the good things of life. But while ‘lady luck’ may smile I would not rely on her. But perhaps you deserve a little indulgence. In December allow the grey matter in your head to work hard! And remember the old saying ‘knowledge is power’.

There is likely to be tensions with extended various family members. And group events may prove demanding. But Venus, the harmonious lady of love, is in your sign. She will help you to pass easily through any hassles. In December you may want to challenge authority figures. But they will push back!

AN ALTERNATIVE VOICE ~ NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

An escape is needed. Where can you go? Take some time off or at least have a weekend doing something different to what you have always done. There is a new development at work, so ask questions. Later in the season impulse buying can be bigger than you expect.


LOVING & APPROVING OF MYSELF I am a blessed individual who is grateful to be living my career dream of being a motivational speaker, an actress and a creative business woman. My lifestyle can get very busy and at times I do feel under pressure. The demand of being in the public eye, performing at my best, running my company properly and having a balanced life in general is sometimes difficult.

I spend half an hour every day doing an activity I enjoy and that is positive for my mind and body.

BY ALIVIA AUSTIN Alivia is a professional actress, motivational speaker and creative entrepreneur. Visit: www.aleadingproduction.com

I want to share with you how I stay centred and full of positive energy in the hopes that one or all of these exercises will assist you in your day to day life. I look in the mirror every morning and I say out loud, “I embrace, approve and love myself

completely”. This helps me feel happy, confident and ready to take on the day ahead. I spend half an hour every day doing an activity I enjoy and that is positive for my mind and body. Some of these are dancing, being creative, treating myself to an organic face mask, reading positive affirmations/quotes and doing pilates. If an event or situation is bringing stress into my life I will usually step away for a few moments and take four long deep breaths. In this time I encourage myself to feel grateful for what I have in my life and it brings a big smile to my face. I am a great believer in staying organized. I feel creating “to do” lists, updating my schedule often and keeping my home and office tidy helps me to stay prepared, keep focused and feel secure. As a young woman I understand that every person who is striving to achieve their very best will discover learning experiences which will take time to process. Please stay optimistic through these lessons. Love and believe in yourself and trust in your talents, your kindness and your strength to keep you positive and active in life.
