professionally. On another personal note, I was involved with a fantastic team of people who put together Santa Shoe Boxes for a non-profit organisation ICORP. These will be distributed in two villages in Mozambique to children who have so very little and will be overjoyed to receive gifts donated by various companies and individuals. In closing I would like to wish all who celebrate Christmas Blessings and also to those who do not. We all can benefit from receiving blessings from one another. Stay safe wherever you may go and have a truly wonderful month of December.

Hello and welcome to reading the December Issue, the last one for the year. It seems nearly impossible to believe that we have a mere 30 days to go and we will be heralding in 2017.

Blessings

It would be most interesting to hear from you how you have found 2016 on a personal as well as professional level and what you are hoping will 2017 will bring into your life. So please do drop us an email at letters@aneisdevida.co.za and give us your thoughts and perspectives.

A beautiful photograph by the artist

— Roger Casteleyn as to remind us of the beauty out in nature which we need to preserve at all costs. View full photograph on page 30.

For many of you, you will be looking forward to a well deserved break, and please do make sure to make the most of it and get some ‘’me’’ time into those days off.

In this months issue there is quite a mix of information coming your way, and always a good idea to read everything with an open mind and take from it that which serves you.

You will have noticed that the logo of Aneis de Vida has changed. This beautiful creation was done by Lucia Smith. The reason for the change, it just looks so much better which is obvious but each one of us continues to evolve daily and so to everything else. Life is not stagnant and change should be welcomed (always with the thought of what next can we learn and improve on), and as such the changes in the logo too. November was a very busy month and one of the events I was asked to be a part of was a breakfast in Johannesburg hosted by Cindy Kruger from Healing with Angels. As is the case when being on ‘’stage’’ with Cindy it brings so much personally as well as Aneis de Vida

Y

ou think you are doing good by working to put food on the table, you think those you serve will give to you what you give to them. You think that life is relatively fair and just. You think your life is of value. You think ….

to standard, however, please take note that they are made with a small cell phone camera) The question that you must have in your mind right now is ‘’what is he in jail for’’? Basically, it boils down to a trumped-up charge against him, the reason being he came too close for comfort to those who command high ranking positions, are corrupt and involved with drugs and other illegal activities.

Did you take a good look at the photograph with the majestic view, overlooking the wonderful, peace filled courtyard of the prison? Before you continue reading this article which is one in a series of updates to come, go back and take another look.

This article is from a humanitarian perspective, information to date has been supplied by Gareth Rutherford. The British Embassy in Kuwait are unwilling to give information thus far, should they give their side of the story it will be added in the next article. Up until now the Mail and Guardian, Sun, BBC, Cape Times and several other journalists and media houses have been perhaps too afraid to tackle this story for whatever reason, and of course it could be a very valid reason as it is a toxic story on many levels. However, it is a story which needs to be read and told, once all the information, even if only one sided at this point in time is perused by you, you need to decide whether this which is happening is fair and just or despicable behaviour by governments and corrupt human beings being unable to live a life of peace and justness.

That view is the one that Gareth Rutherford has stared out to for the past 8 years of his life. A Kuwaiti jail filled with many violent and on many levels, reprehensible human beings. However, there have also been and still are good and kind inmates that in many instances like Gareth himself, should not be inhabiting a space within these confines.

In 2003 Gareth began working at a company by the name of Inchcape Shipping Services in Kuwait as an Operations Maintenance Manager for Military Logistics. By 2005 cross border travel became more difficult and could only be done with military escort, after 2006 cross border travel was only done via air travel. It was growing more difficult from a security perspective and many of his work colleagues opted to withdraw their services which resulted in Gareth obtaining a more senior position overseeing a complete project.

His new position required him to fly into Kuwait to drop off large sums of money for the shipping services the company required. Flights were all authorised by the British Ministry of Defence and the Attaché at the Kuwait Embassy. These authorisations are on file at Inchcape Shipping Services in Kuwait.

months he had no thought that there could be something sinister in the call and request. On his arrival, the Kuwaiti CID (central intelligence department) drug squad were waiting for him. Making it seem, as though he were the drug supplier, driving from Iraq with the drugs stashed in the speer wheel. Now keep in mind that there was no travelling from Iraq to Kuwait by road, only via air and he had just come off a military plane with several British citizens in tow. It meant he had clearance to be in Kuwait and the British Embassy had given the ‘’nod’’ for him to be on board that flight.

Due to his position as a supplier of labour, materials and machines to various subcontractors he knew many local suppliers, civil people as well as military personal in Iraq.

Gareth was officially arrested on the afternoon of 18 September 2008, accused of having stashed in the region of 49 kg’s of white drugs neatly sealed in packets, also found were many bottles of whisky and loads of cash. To this day he is unclear as to what drug could truly have been. His return flight home was to be the 19th September, and as you well guessed, not a flight he boarded. The CID police confiscated his money and documentation was thrown on the ground. He was interrogated for many days, and it took several days before a police investigator telephoned the British Embassy.

On the night of 17 September 2008, Gareth together with British Embassy staff landed at the military airport base in Kuwait. After clearing customs Gareth went to his hotel and then drove with the company vehicle to his office to check on a few things for the coming weeks. On route to the office Gareth got a phone call requesting him to collect tools for one of the contractors on site. As is he was late to deliver the gifts bought for his bosses, but did as they asked. He loaded up a wheelbarrow, toolbox, spades and a spare wheel and left to the location they asked him to go to. In retrospect on could say – why be a part of such an unusual request, but it is always easy to have the answers in retrospect. Having dealt with these people over several Aneis de Vida

A question that comes up is why did the company not contact the embassy to find out if they knew the whereabouts of Gareth. This is but one of many questions which do not add up in the whole sad story of the arrest of a man who is incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. And worse still, they all know this but stand back because one man’s life is not worth anything. One could venture as far as saying we are all walking this planet and are literally puppets on a string. Our lives mean nothing supposedly in the broader scheme of the political world. 18

This operation was planned and executed with a military precision. The interesting and extremely sad fact is that the 4 drug lords are free and carrying on with their lives as if nothing wrong has happened. Someone high up in the governmental offices pulled the strings and in theory the most Gareth was to have gotten was a reprimand. During his court case, there was no interpretation, and there was no one from the British embassy who said this was not legal either, the excuse – it would harm relationships between the two countries. So again, it comes to the point of one man’s life is not worth anything to a government organisation even if he was serving and doing a job for the government.

that her son was imprisoned for a deed he had not committed. Gareth feels in his heart her passing was more from a broken heart and the shame that was brought upon the family name than anything else. And with this he carries the burden of guilt.

Her father predominately taught her the practical aspect of the Craft whilst with her mother and her side of the family, the esoteric. Tudorbeth’s great grandmother read tea leaves in Ireland whilst her Welsh great grandmother knew every herb, plant, and flora to live on, survive on, to use as a cure and remedy.

witch, as she says that is not something she or those who practice the craft ever were. It is the witch hunters that call her and people like her that. Tudorbeth and those who practice the craft call themselves healers, wise ones, shaman, medicine woman and men, and these are the terms she prefers. She does teach the craft to others and will one day have an online course whereby she will be able to share all her knowledge of the plants, herbs, folklore, spells, magical correspondences to people who generally want to learn. She says that there are some traditions who would term her a High Priestess, and she often tells people that a witch is not just for Halloween, it is a way of life, and in some cases lives. As once a witch always a witch.

In the beginning although fascinated by witches and their lives and the things they endured she didn't openly admit that she was one until in her 40’s and even now she is very quiet about it. People at work for example do not know who she is. As in the past she was bullied into leaving places due to what she is, when being open and telling people of her craft. Prejudice for the unknown is still there and Tudorbeth thinks for witches it will always be - unfortunately.

Tudorbeth lives a normal life but always at the whim of the universe and she does not try to fight against its will so much these days. Magic and Tudorbeth have grown together and she tries to encompass it into everything she does, especially with goodness and love in her heart.

Personally, she does not like using the term

Christmas Eve Rituals Many of our rituals for this time of year stem from our ancestors who celebrated Yule, which is the Winter Solstice and occurs on the 21st December. The sun begins to return and the days do start to get that bit longer. Christmas Eve rituals are ones of light, magic, love and peace

1) Christmas Eve Wish Upon the Light Traditionally there are candles on Christmas Eve. The candles of Yule are lit, one green and one white candle. Imagine the light circling the room from the candle. Make a Christmas wish upon the candle light and watch the glow of the flickering lightdance round the room filling every corner with your wish. Then open a window and watch the light dance its way out into the universe.

2) Prepare the House for Magic Visitors We welcome the magic of Christmas Eve into our homes and especially that jolly old elf, Santa Claus, who for us is the embodiment of the Green Man or nature. Therefore, we welcome nature into our homes by having a Christmas tree. We Aneis de Vida

What were your motivative factors to get involved with volunteering?

could lose these animals completely in less than 10 years from now... which is detrimental not only for the animals but the whole ecosystem we live in.

My drive to become a volunteer began at a young age, when I became interested in watching David Attenborough documentaries about African wildlife.

Where did you go and volunteer and for how long?

I felt deeply connected about the complex world of nature and how all animals work harmoniously with each other despite their differences. I felt at that point that, this was what humans where missing. I then shortly after discovered many disturbing things about the threats these animals where facing caused by human interference.

My journey began on the 2nd of October 2016, I was heading to Southern Africa to a place called Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape to a place called The Crags Elephant sanctuary. My flight was leaving from Johannesburg airport to George airport where I was meeting the volunteer manager Wayne Johnson and the other volunteer I was going to be staying with for two weeks, when arriving at the sanctuary I met all the lovely and welcoming staff members and handlers of the elephants. I was then taken to my room that was nice and spacious with my own bath room. I was introduced to all the rescued elephants from the sanctuary and what the program entailed for the two week duration. At that point I was very excited to learn a complex break

This then lead me to take action and learn more about the ways I could help and bring awareness to people to come together and bring change to save African wildlife.

What have you learnt about these majestic animals that you would like readers to know? When I think of an African elephant I think of how graceful, and one with nature they are. How silent they are when walking, even though they carry a weight of about 2.5 to 7 tons, they have gelatine like cartilage in their feet which enable them to tread so softly. But most of all African elephants work well in herds as a community which I believe really represent the similarities they have to people, when a calf is born the mother and other female members of the herd gather together and protect the calf until it reaches a point of maturity and can fend for itself, the females are either an older daughter from the mother or as we would call it a cousin or Aunt. So, when witnessing that we form a better understanding and begin to feel a deeper connection. But elephants carry something that has become of value to human profit, ivory which is wiping out this specie to extinction and if humans don’t act now it has been said that we Aneis de Vida

down of the behaviour of the elephants the anatomy and physiology which I had not learnt before on other volunteer programs. After the first few days everything started to fall in to place with identification of individual elephants to social behaviours in breeding herds which when then practiced at a Nature reserve on wild elephant breeding herds.

these species I have become a volunteer in my home country Australia after returning from my last trip in 2015 I wanted to do more once I had returned home. Which lead me to become part of a not for profit charity organisation called International Coalition Of Rhino Protection based in Southern Africa that are helping support African elephants and rhinos from illegal ivory trade and poaching. This organisation helps support anti poaching rangers and their communities that are protecting these animals in the field, by doing so the organisation run volunteer programs where volunteers can learn more about these animals and the threats they are facing and what they can do to help.

What are you presently working on towards helping these majestic animals? With my contribution to sustain the survival of Feeding Time

What would you like readers to specifically know about them to make readers understand them better? African elephants are the largest herbivores in the world, the role they play in the ecosystem is vital. They are bulk feeders and other African animals thrive off their way of living. Elephants create water holes for many animals and tribes, by digging up dried up river beds with their powerful trunks which they use as a tool for many things. There dung is used as a fertilizer and other animals feed off the seeds they ingest to help germinate plant species. They maintain structure and balance for many other living creatures on earth. Which is why its something that needs to be spoken about – it’s not just an elephant it’s part of our existence if we Aneis de Vida

he Summer brings a rainbow of opportunities when it comes to the variety of fruit and vegetables available. The inner artist can be inspired by the expansive options of colour, taste and texture. There is no end to the options that a few simple ingredients can bring. Holidays brings us back home, to our kitchen, as we begin planning all the celebration meals we will share with loved ones.

DID YOU KNOW: Pulses have a long, rich history. The first evidence of pulses comes from 11,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent, a region in the Middle East which was home to some of the earliest human civilizations.

Being creative with salad options is one way that we can merge taste, colour, fragrance and textures together. All of our senses are touched by the sheer abundance of the rainbow spectrum that is afforded to us. Having a salad as a meal sounds wonderfully healthy but that is not going to help if you feel ravenously hungry a short time after the meal. Some of my favourite additions to the salad is to include either a rice, a grain, a legume or even some pasta. In this article, I would like to focus on the benefits of legumes and pulses but more precisely, how to cook them. I am often surprised that not many people know how to prepare them. I imagine that being able to purchase tinned foods is possibly one reason for this. My opinion is that tinned foods should be the exception rather than the norm. They are loaded with hidden sugars, salts and preservatives. The holidays are no reason to drop all the healthy changes you have made through the year.

Question : What are the nutritional benefits? Beans are a good source of folate, dietary fiber, manganese, protein, magnesium, vitamin B1 (thiamin) as well as all the bitamin B’s, calcium, zinc, phosphorus, and iron. They're loaded with antioxidants and may help lower your risk of heart attacks while stabilizing blood sugar.

Question: Why do legumes and pulses give me flatulence, bloated, indigestion? Firstly; the underlying cause lies in your inner ecosystem. Is your eco-system healthy or not? What is living in your gut? Secondly; how have the legumes, grains and pulses been prepared? This is our focus in this article. Thirdly; is what you are purchasing been subjected to chemicals, genetically altered or organic? The source of your ingredients plays a significant role in how your body is able to digest them, or not. However, since many of us have weak digestive systems, it's important to know how to properly prepare them before cooking them.

Question; What are legumes, pulses and beans? Legumes- a class of vegetables that includes beans, peas and lentils Pulses- are the edible seeds of plants in the legume family. Pulses grow in pods and come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors.: dry beans, dry broad beans, dry peas, chickpeas, cow peas, pigeon peas, lentils, Bambara beans, vetches, lupins and pulses.

All grains, nuts, beans, and seeds have an enzyme inhibitor called phytic acid in them. Phytic acid neutralizes your body's digestive enzymes, making it very difficult to assimilate these foods. Also, phytic acid binds to minerals, proteins, and starches so that you won't be able to benefit from these important nutrients. In large amounts, phytic acid blocks the uptake of calcium, magnesium, copper, and

Beans- The difference between a legume and a bean is that a legume is a class of vegetables that includes beans. Although beans are always legumes, not all legumes are beans.

iron. Modern-day food processing and preparation methods have ignored this important fact, which is another reason why digestive disorders and mineral and nutrient deficiencies have become rampant in our society. Our ancestors knew very well that they had to soak, sprout, or use only fermented grains before they could be eaten, as each of these processes removes the phytic acid from nuts, seeds, beans, and grains.

they are ready to prepare. Salad Preparation When preparing your salads, have a beautiful, large bowl or platter that you can showcase your creation. You can use the different kitchen utensils to get a variety of shapes; example- a spiralizer, grating on the small grate for a juicier texture, a large grate for flecks of colour, small blocks, large blocks, slivers of veggies, chopped, sliced shredded. Add fruit into the salad to bring a slightly sweeter flavour.

If you want the wonderful benefits of these grains while encouraging the reestablishment of your inner ecosystem, do not eat them without soaking them in water for at least 8 hours, preferably 24 hours, before rinsing and cooking. You can lower the oxalate content in grains by boiling them in water and just before they are completely cooked, drain the water and then refill the pot with fresh water to finish cooking.

Red- beetroot, radish and tomatoes, red onions, strawberries, berries Orange- carrots, oranges, pineapple, nectarines

Preparing Dried Legumes

Yellow- peppers, sweet corn, peaches, sweet potatoes, lemons

Tip: One (1) cup of dried beans or peas usually makes about two to three (2 – 3) cups cooked.

Green- all your salad leaves, herbs, broccoli, cucumber, peas, beans, avo, kiwi fruit, lime

Basic Preparation: Pick out any stones, sticks or blemished beans. Rinse them well before soaking them. Dried beans should soak in water overnight to soften before cooking.

tive body. I use all my senses and abilities, which most people have without them knowing it or consciously working with it. I sense my room and if it feels right/light and conducive to healing. There are times when I feel the need to move crystals, declutter or reorganise things to shift the energies. At times, I may smudge my room to clear out unwanted energies left as a residual. Then I will mediate centring myself and asking my lover mind and ego to step aside, and I state that I choose to connect to my higher self. I choose to think, feel, act, express and experience my higher self, invoking my angels, archangels, healer, and light being guides to work with me and through me. Through this process, once I have rapid eye movement, I know that I am then connected. When a client enters my space, I connect with their energy and sense how they are feeling, where their emotional blockages are and am guided to ask specific questions. Once we have established the root cause of the issue, there is a rush of energy and I have goose bumps running up and down my spine. If I am unsure I sit in short meditation and ask and then follow the instructions I am given to help this given client. Each client is different, and get different information to work with. After the session, I will disconnect from the client’s energy.

Somewhere along the line a child grows up its imagination stops, because too often the child hears, ‘’that’s just your imagination, you’re such a dreamer, wake up to the real world, stop day dreaming and come back to reality’’. What a pity… but part of the journey… I have found that the most gifted people have found their imagination to be of use to them. Where is the spot within ourselves that the imagination takes place? Within the 3rd eye, the all-seeing and inner eye. Veils of illusion block it, but there are ways to open it up. Psychics use this to see into the different timelines and read auras. Would you believe me if I told you that you were psychic? Do you trust the images that come up during your day? For example, you are looking for your car keys. In your mind’s eye, you see them on the kitchen counter, do you ignore your ‘’thought’’ and check whether they are hanging on the key holder just to check if you did not hang them there? Or do you go straight through to the kitchen? What makes you choose whichever option? The interference of the logic mind, gets in the way of your images coming to the fore. When you are in your intuitive state following your intuitive promptings, you receive the answers you seek and you follow the correct steps. The intuitive ‘’mind’’ is the closest connection to our soul and soul consciousness where our mind is attached to the 3D matrix and reality. The mind complicates matters and brings us into a form of an obstacle course, but the soul simplifies everything.

So, in and during a consultation session I would be shown certain pictures to describe to me how the client is feeling. As such, my guides will show me, that they are floating in the deep ocean but they are panicking and fearful and the more they fight the more they drown, they have these attachments around their ankles and in order to save themselves these are the things they need to let go of, cut ties with, release. And after we’ve done it, it feels like the client is coming up for air and breathing deeply for the first time in ages. Whatever the pictures have been when describing them to the clients they nod their heads as if to say “I am so glad someone finally understands what I feel and what I have gone through.

You may ask, how do I operate from my intuitive body? Easy, through intent. Setting your intent, you shift the operating functions. A personal example is, when I enter my healing room I set the intent to operate from my intuiAneis de Vida

These examples are not just my imagination as some would call it, it’s actually intuitive guidance.

quette

It says Imagination/Inner child (key words Nocturnal Dreams/Daydreaming/Reverence/ Fantasy) “Come play with me” and Invention/ Creativity Guides (key works Adaptation/ Adjustment/Transformation/Challenge) “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”

Where else can you use it, where else can you apply it? Here is another example. You get to a cross roads in your life and you are unsure which road to take. What I suggest to my clients is close your eyes and see yourself going down road A, how does it feel within your body following this path. Then see yourself going down road B, how does it feel within your body following this path. The right path with feel lighter and brighter and right within your body, the less appropriate path will feel obstructed and heavy within your body. My advice is take the path that “feels” right not the one that your mind “thinks” is right. Too many people follow the mind and get so frustrated and irritated in dead-end jobs because logic says it’s the right thing to do, yet you can do something different that you get a tremendous amount to joy out of and brings in money what a bonus. The unfortunate thing is that not everyone knows that is available for them. You don’t have to conform, use your imagination, what would you love doing? Then ask the Universe “What would it take for me to be able to do this”? “Show me how to earn money from it”. I did and created my own job, one that I don’t have to wear shoes in, - I love walking barefoot, it grounds and connects me, one that I can burn incense to clear the air in, one that I can play music in to shift vibrations and create an atmosphere of healing and peace, one that I love to do, one that rewards me not only with soul satisfaction but that is financially rewarding as well, one that I can take afternoon naps to recharge myself in, guilt free, because when I work I work hard and give 110%, one that I work in a beautiful environment with lovely energies that each one who enters can feel, I can go on and on… The key here is INFINITE possibilities are open and available to you. Imagine it and then follow the intuitive promptings you get.

The message being that we should always create balance within our life and there is a time and place for everything. Use your creativity in whatever way, shape or form to create a beautiful life for yourself. I would like to remind you of the words from JOHN LENNON LYRICS "Imagine" Imagine there's no heaven It's easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today... Aha-ah... Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for

But what makes it so special? Basic principles and techniques for the beauty therapist: Ann Gallant (pages 224-226) The heat from the steamer opens the pores so that they can be deeply cleansed and it also allows for increased product absorption. It also improves blood circulation to the skin thereby increasing nourishment and skin functions (regeneration and excretion). The moisture from the steamer softens dead skin cells and aids in their removal. It temporarily softens superficial lines (plumps up the skin) and hydrates superficial layers of the skin. Do NOT steam if: Your skin is extremely vascular (red), sunburnt or rosacea is present. Take caution if: Your skin is hypersensitive, very dry, has acne or cuts. Also avoid steaming if you are claustrophobic, have asthma or telangiectasia. Steaming at home is very simple and there are a few simple methods. Showering or bathing in steaming water is the easiest, but if that isn’t possible you can try a steam room (similar to a sauna, but uses steam). You can also place boiling water in a basin and put a towel over your head and hang your head just above the basin.

There are a few reasons why you could develop a stomach ulcer such as an infection, using anti-inflammatory medication, excessive alcohol consumption, some medical treatments such as radiation or certain acidic foods eaten daily over a prolonged period of time. Some of the symptoms associated with a stomach ulcer are: burning sensation, pain, poor appetite, bloating, indigestion, nausea, vomiting and wind.

removes the acidity from the gastric juices within the stomach.

Here a few natural remedies to aid in the cure or prevention of stomach ulcers.

Oats

Coconut Excellent for anyone suffering from an ulcer due to its antibacterial qualities, therefore killing off the bacteria which cause the ulcer in the first place. Whether you eat it raw or drink the milk or water, you will not go wrong in consuming coconut in any form. This is one that is not well known, but works like a charm even though it may seem tiresome. You will need to consume oats for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a minimum of 7 days, preferably 10. Cook oats, and add either butter or coconut oil. It covers and heals the ulcer in the stomach area.

Cabbage Either by eating cabbage or drinking the juice you will find that cabbage assists in the production of amino acids which help with the blood flow throughout the stomach. Either boil the cabbage and drink the juice or you can add it to a blender and extract the juice that way. Bananas

Please remember should issues continue for more than a few days to consult with your medical practitioner.

In any form, bananas are good but for an ulcer they remove the acidity from the gastric juice within the stomach. Cayenne Pepper A natural anti-inflammatory and like banana Aneis de Vida

ou want to know your essence.

instance, will then be born under that sign. Being born into this world is a traumatic energetic process - a baptism of fire - which is instantly forgotten at the first breath. The gentle vibrations transmitted by the stars are a soft reassurance to the reborn soul that it is in the right place at the right time. They help to integrate the soul into this planet from birth until death, so that even though it is a stranger in a foreign land, it has the reassurance that its purpose is being fulfilled.

You need some guidance because, in this world, there are so many conflicting ideas, opinions and points of view that it is impossible to correctly judge the soundness of every perspective. In a way you know who you are. You know what you think about yourself, and you see yourself in a certain mould and framework.

Knowing this, it can now be understood why certain groups of people exhibit some startling resemblances in the way they think and act. We have all undergone millions of lives and experiences. Now on this earth, certain debts have to be paid and unresolved issues settled. Therefore having the right characteristics will result in the prompting of actions that lead to the clearing of these burdens. It is a very subtle and clever design which, while directing our every step, gives the illusion of control and independence.

You know also that there is more to you than meets your own eye but, because of the bias of the outside world, when looking in towards yourself with an eye corrupted by others' opinions you know it is going to be impossible to see the truth clearly. Through the ages, men have sought guidance from external phenomena.

Knowing the energetic attributes of your star sign is a great help in discovering your soul purpose and the reasons for why you act the way you do. It is a valuable tool to help deal with the vagaries of life and it allows a certain amount of self-forgiveness. When you feel your own stupidity has sabotaged your life it is not entirely unjustified to blame the stars!

Observing closely the movements of the natural world, they have attempted to correlate those repetitive occurrences with the events in their lives. It has been a natural progression to link the moment of birth to a position of a formation of stars. It is true but not generally known that these different star formations give rise to particular, unique vibrations. The arrival of a baby is a preset matter, and its matching celestial vibration welcomes the soul into the world reassuring it that it has arrived at the right time and in the right place.

[Star signs help us navigate our way through the incomprehensibility of our fortunes. For good or ill, we can see how our inherent nature governs our choices. As they say, “knowledge is power� and armed with the conscious understanding of our innate tendencies helps immensely in the struggle to live a worthwhile and purposed life.]

The karmic history of each soul, dictates its earthly disposition. Each disposition can be broadly classified into twelve distinct categories. Thus a soul with a karmic load that dominantly results in the disposition of a Leo, for Aneis de Vida

For Beryl Broekman life really began on 16 March 2012. For it was then that, while doing a thetahealing course, she realized her soul purpose was to be an energy healer. Embracing her new found gift, she developed her own healing modality, Powatheta, and formed her own company in the same name. Rooted firmly in the 'real' world she goes to great lengths to demystify intuition, distance healing and the angelic realm and encourages businesses to embrace this untapped source of wisdom to maximize profits. It was not long before Beryl started writing down the insights from other worlds and her blog serie (www.mysticstoryteller.com) took shape.

https://www.amazon.com/Poetry-Archangels-Mystic-Storyteller-Book-ebook/dp/B00NAIWZZM/ ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1469896901&sr=8-1&keywords=poetry+of+the+archangels#navbar

Beryl has an exceptionally close relationship with the beings of the angelic realm. The ten archangels trusted her to write down their poems which they wanted to express to us and these can be found in her book 'Poetry of the Archangels'. Through her, they also have their own Facebook page -Angel wisdom for modern times (https:// www.facebook.com/cosmicguidance/-) where anyone can ask them a question and get an answer specifically for them. Beryl is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. As well as consulting and spending her time writing the mystic storyteller books she develops property, travels to India every year, spends time with family and goes scuba diving.

any inner psychic experiences relate to the ability to translate impressions, sensations and feelings into colours, forms and images in our minds. This is not supernatural, or the stuff of fairytales. Look up ‘synesthesia’ in any good encyclopedia and you will see that this skill exists, although it is usually not wellknown outside of metaphysical circles. Due to the electro-chemical nature of our nervous system, our bodies are surrounded by an envelope which is extremely sensitive, much like the electromagnetic atmosphere of the Earth. As we know, disturbances in this atmosphere, such as that caused by sun-spots, can affect the conditions on the planet. In a like manner, subtle outside influences are able to bring about sensations, sense-impressions and ‘feelings’ in our bodies, which, by means of synesthesia, can be translated into images. I am sure that many of you have experienced a sense of danger or discomfort in the past. Imagine this feeling giving rise to impressions of ‘spikiness’, or the colour red, or a vision of thorns flashing briefly in your mind. Similarly, consider the sensation of comfort or safety spontaneously producing a Aneis de Vida

brief image of a ‘safe’ colour such as blue, or even objects such as ‘bubbles’ or ‘cotton puffs’. You will see that these images can all be symbolically associated with their particular feelings, and have simply been generated by your subconscious mind in response to your experience.

As mentioned before, the actual images you see in response to the feelings are personal, shaped by your own background, beliefs and views of the world. For example, if you were bitten by a dog as a child, you may associate danger with a nastylooking dog, and this image could flash into your mind if you experience a sensation or feeling of danger.

Understanding that energies outside of ourselves can produce these sensations and feelings, and that these can be translated into images, explains the psychic visions that are often seen during meditations.

Jimmy Henderson is a cognitive scientist and metaphysician. His books are available on Amazon.com (Jimmy Henderson) or via his website:

Obviously being able to automatically translate impressions and feelings into images requires some training and your mind will have to be in a very relaxed state and sensitized to pick up the subtle cues, but it is possible during meditation or other altered states.

www.discoveringyourself.co.za

With practice, this skill can be further developed to the point where sensations and feelings can produce images in your minds which superimpose themselves on your normal consciousness (something like a daydream), and become even more complex, resembling humanlike figures. 59

God Sings About You

The Story of the Lost Coin

Have you ever considered the topic - God Sings About You? Or, even with reading the statement, you may ask – what makes God sing about me? Can I even influence such a possibility and what could be the possible value thereof?

“Or imagine a woman who has ten coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and scout the house, looking in every nook and cranny until she finds it? And when she finds it you can be sure she’ll call her friends and neighbours: ‘Celebrate with me! I found my lost coin!’ Count on it – that’s the kind of party God’s angels throw every time one lost soul turns to God.’

I am an enthusiastic singer and love listening to great music. Enthusiasm means ‘inspired by God’. I find singing uplifting – we know that singing increase the amount of oxygen in bodies, but singing also increases the spiritual oxygen in the soul.

I want you to imagine a valuable gold Kruger rand that this woman had lost, say to the value of R100 000 – this may put this story in a better perspective, not the R1 or ten cent coin which we scoff at. It may even get the least domesticated person broom focused.

Our emotions inspire us to sing, whether we are ecstatic, sad, grieved or in awe of something... To date, the topic most sung about is love. Now, love is a beautiful word but rather limited and abused so sometimes we have to consider the different meanings of love.

Now, take it one step further. You are all familiar with the concept that a complete collection has far greater value than one coin. So, let’s say the value of this collection of coins escalates to R15m as a set...

In this instance our focus will be on agape (God’s intense love for us). This said, we find an exceeding and increasing number of songs about hate, pain, destruction and perversion, not the type of topics that I would wish to feed my soul on. I sometimes get lured by the catch phrase or chorus of a song until my children bring my attention to the fact that they may be destructive words – have you ever experienced that?

Perhaps now the maths and value of this intervention becomes more apparent in our frame of reference. Now, imagine the relief this woman would have and how elated she would be with a great need to dance, celebrate and sing with joy... The second part of this parable reminds us that the angels have a party every time a sinner or a back slider comes home. Imagine the joy and jubilation at that party...the dancing the singing...clapping of hands, waving of arms...

But, within the confines of this book, I want to share this new excitement in my life that God, through the working of the Holy Spirit, has conjured up in my spirit: 1)

2)

What makes God sing about you and me?

Attempt to imagine this party – would you like an invitation?

and

The second part of my message builds even further on this joyful note of celebration – let’s read from

What is the impact of God singing about you and me?

Zephaniah 3:14-17: “Sing, o Daughter of Zion; shout O Israel! Rejoice, be in high spirits and glory with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem [in that day].

I wish to invite you to meditate on mainly two passages from the Bible, one in Luke, Chapter 15:10 from The Message® and the other in Zephaniah, Chapter 3, verse 13 to 17 from the Amplified®.

[For then it will be that] the Lord has taken away the judgment against you; He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, even the

For your own sake - always meditate prayerfully on the Word of God. Aneis de Vida

61

December 2016


Lord [Himself], is in the midst of you; [and after He has come to you] you shall not experience or fear evil any more.

Remember the universe was created by the Word of God – he spoke, it happened. Ask yourself today how joyful singing from God will impact your life, your existence today. He releases these creative Words in your favour. Just imagine the blessings unleashed, it is so potent.

In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear not, O Zion. Let not your hand sink down or be slow and listless. 17 The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves!]. He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love, He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing. [underlining emphasis by author]

Imagine this God singing - Imagine an opera wherein God sings the other part in declaring His love for us... These are great foundations for building a relationship aren’t they? From a human perspective we love to be serenaded by another human, but by God – that is intense… Now, refer back to the reading from Zephaniah and notice all the wonderful promises that will be unleashed.

Every sentence in this passage deserves our in-depth attention. This is part of where we need to meditate (think and reflect deeply and make it your own) on the Word of God. The word Zephaniah means “hidden by God”; I trust that you will be discovering new joy today.

You see, God desires an intimate relationship with each one of us. A relationship based on complete trust. And if you have not reached that intimacy with God yet, I am going to invite you to make a change today.

For many years I sang the song: The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, is mighty. He will joy over thee with singing... (derived from Zephaniah 3:17)

If the Holy Spirit has convinced you to make a stronger public declaration regarding your relationship with God, if it is time to make your engagement with God public, then I will invite you to reach out and touch this God that is composing a love song just for you today.

And yet, the penny never dropped until I prepared for a baptism festival wherein the Holy Spirit led me to Zephaniah to emphasize that God sings about you and me... Imagine that – this mighty God, our Creator the God that breathes out solar systems and universes sings about me...

The fact that you picked up this booklet today emphasizes that you were destined to do so today. You may never have heard of God, or you may have become a backslider. You may even be in a great relationship with God – then I implore you to rejoice!

You may think that this passage was meant for Israel, which is right because God had a corporate approach to Israel in the Old Testament, which meant that God dealt with priests, prophets and kings and not the individuals. However, this passage was written when the Israelites returned to God. Today, our covenant with God is a personal one – when a sinner or backslider comes home. God sings about that person...is that exciting or what? Just pause and read that again – God exults over you with singing. He has great pleasure in singing about you!

Aneis de Vida

Perhaps it is time to take this relationship with God to another level – all you have to do is accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, confess your sins and repent. Accept the joy of the Lord. We considered the joy of a woman when she found her lost coin – can you imagine God in such a joyful mood that he sings about you? In this personal relationship God wants to fill you with His Holy Spirit – another marvelous gift that you can have today. 62

Summary

ou are a pure energy vibration. At this moment on planet Earth you are termed an Energetic Frequency, vibrating at a slower rate enabling you to be a part of the ‘’dense’’ world we live in. It may seem as if the body houses the spirit, but the spirit holds the body together. The moment the spirit leaves the body, the body no longer can function, there is no longer life in the body.

In this dense environment, you cannot see who you really are, but the Higher Inner Self just knows who you are and can see the bigger picture. The higher Inner Self does not interfere, because it is your experience. Your Guides and Source Energy only act when asked to help. You have free will. You are also a Multi-Dimensional making all things possible. All possibilities in life exist for you to experience ……what do you choose? No choice is wrong or right, it is only an experience. It is only us who feel some experience as being better or worse, but all experiences are lessons along the path. Due to that, the Higher Inner Self and Source Energy do not interfere with your free will.

Source Energy, God, IS THE ALL THAT IS.

Experiencing ‘’itself’’ through each of us. Jesus said: “I and the Father are one.” John 10: verse 30…… And “the works that I do, he will also do and greater works than these he will do “John 14: verse 12

We are blind to what is out there. We can only see what is part of the spectrum of light. Anything else we cannot see with our eyes, but the third eye can see it because the third eye is part of the Spirit Energy that you are. As soon as we learn to open the third eye, our lives change. Now we see who we really are, and start to believe what the Higher Inner Self has always known. We are Pure Energy Vibration, being part of Source Energy, being part of all that is.

We come to Mother Earth to experience and to remember who we are, and we come whenever we are ready for the next step to be taken in our growth process. We have had many Earthly experiences. There is no concept of time, all is happening now-it only depends on where you, as the observer, are observing from. We perceive time to be linear, starting at birth and ending with death. We have a start and a finish, but all is stacked up, on top of each other like a note pad. All time is happening now. It is happening in the same space but at different Frequency vibrations.

We are not separate, we have never been separate and we will never be separate. We are all ONE. What I do to you, will always affect me, in all ways. Multi-Dimensional being.

Coming from an awareness of yourself as Spirit, you know all time is now. You decide where you want to start and prepare what you want to experience, and with whom, and at what time. Then you are born, and come through the birth canal, and ‘’human’’ time starts. Before you were born you could see all existence. You could choose your experience and what you wanted to learn. You could see it play out. The observer is looking in from the outside…..all is happening at once. Being born the observer becomes the observed and becomes part of the game, and being part of the game you are moving from point a to b to c and so on…. Aneis de Vida

are part of the whole, the good and the bad influences around them, stagnation will again occur. Hatred is as much part of the call to wake up as love. . . Each 'side' has their own agenda and love it. The more that gather the more the influence they have over others. but each side is loving or hating in unison. Trying desperately to make their voices heard. BUT All they are doing is crying out the same old song that spread hurt, distrust, lack of ..... they divide, they move one step forward, and once more stagnate in their frustration. The only thing that counts is the lone voice in the wilderness, the one that sings, I believe, all is good, i see myself in you all and I understand. come walk beside me and let me show you the beauty in all.

Messages from the Master, are channelled conversations with Atenar, a Master Healer, Spirit Guide, my personal Gate Keeper, Soul Mate, Best Friend and Advisor

Let me show you the love within the hate, the beauty hidden in the ugliness, the joy hidden under the sadness. Let me open your eyes to the oneness of all .... the magnificence of the souls within the human form that are tired and are giving up, who are stagnating and rotting where they stand.

DECEMBER 2016

Those that stand alone and see the world for what it is, and not through the eyes of others are the beacons, follow their light if you must follow .....

The world is changing, change is required, stagnation, being in the rut never is good. Being content to stay the same is never good. Lack of growth is never good. To enable change, souls must wake up, learn to think for themselves, find like-minded souls who share their vision. Good or bad .... the collective WILL turn to each other, it is the way of human nature, a feeling of safety and security that they are not alone.

Standing with you always and in all ways

In love and light Atenar

*1. THEME FOR THE MONTH* Do not go the month ahead alone. Look toward your support structure for the guidance needed to understand how important your presence is. You may think that you are not important, but you are not alone. You are well supported, both physically and spiritually. Accept this and don't be afraid to embrace life with wild abandon. *2. NEW MOON - SEED PLANTED*

Rune Reading By

Confront your fears and stop comparing yourself to others. Within society we are conditioned to follow hierarchical structures. But within these structures, we are left feeling unworthy or less than. Stop looking at yourself as less than someone else. Energetically we are all equal and are all equally able to do as the next person can. While it is good to look for an example from others, also seek out your own way of doing things. Claim your identity in society by being the best YOU there can be.

Amethyst Moon Dancer )O(

*3. WAXING MOON - WHAT GROWS*

Do not become inactive as the month progresses. The moment you stop, everything will become blocked and stagnate. Keep moving and trust in your ability to know the right thing to do with each step of the way. Believe in yourself and know your inner guidance will not lead you astray. *4. FULL MOON - WHAT MANIFESTS* Taking pride in your uniqueness is coming more naturally now. But still take care not to fall back on old ways of thinking. You see the power in thinking for yourself and doing things your way. So, remain steadfast in Aneis de Vida

manifesting the wholeness of your soul. Energetically you will be burning brighter than ever, so keep going and continue to find new ways of expressing your true self.

*5. WANING MOON - WHAT TO RELEASE* Completely and absolutely release your fears unto the universe, so that you can totally claim your rightful place in this world. Follow your instincts and grow fully into yourself. Be brave and take powerful strides towards being true to yourself. There is nothing to fear, but fear itself. ~Amethyst Moon Dancer )O(

December 3 Card Reading 1—10 December There is no need for you to feel alone. You have amazing people who surround you and who give you strength and support. If you should be feeling alone, make sure to seek out like minded people who share your vision and beliefs. It is a time where you may well begin to question the meaning of life, and for answers be around wise teachers and friends..

11— 20 December A time where you need to embrace your inner child. Often neglected in fear of what others may think. This is a time not to fear others but to allow your true self to shine through. You will find this is a time where new friendships are formed and a feeling of having known them forever is very present. It could also be that you again have contact with those where the contact was broken.

21— 31 December As you questioned your life and its meaning at the beginning of the month, now you may find you have answers and it is a time where bold and ambitious choices can and should be made. There are important relationships formed during this time with those who share your vision.

You have needlessly been worrying. It is important to remember that worrying and rehashing your worry is in a form a prayer. And in this what you pray for comes to be. Everything is so much better than what you thought. Let go of your fear and replace it with pure and honest belief.. You are safe and your ‘’worry’’ is in perfect control of Divine providence and universal order. All is well and as it should be in your world. The Fairies Oracle Cards Doreen Virtue Aneis de Vida

M

pumalanga, arguably one of the most diverse and beautiful regions of the world. Formally known as the Eastern Transvaal, the name change took place in 1995. The meaning apt, Mpumalanga in the Swazi, Ndebele, Xhosa and Zulu languages means East or literally translated ‘’The place where the sun rises’’. A province which borders Swaziland as well as Mozambique, and its capital

being Nelspruit.

In South Africa, this region is referred to as the Lowveld, which is subtropical in climate. Hot days and warm nights during the summer months, warm to hot days and cold nights during winter. The rich and diverse flora and fauna of this province are to be seen displayed in all its glory, and amongst the world-renowned Kruger National Park.

Mpumalanga is not only known for its wild-life, flora and fauna but also it is an area which has extensive mining. Some of the minerals which are found here are gold, platimum, chormite, zinc, cobalt, copper, iron, coal and many others. Over 70% of coal is mined in the Mpumalanga area alone, and gold was discovered in 1883 by Auguste Roberts in the mountains surrounding the Barberton area.

Standing at one of the look-out point aptly named Gods Window, you can truly feel yourself connect with nature at its best. Literally bringing you back down to earth, realising how small you are in the vastness of what lies infront of you. Well worth a visit for anyone who just wants to experience the peace and tranquillity of nature.
