Dear Reader, Hallo and a warm welcome to our first issue of MY Health and Beauty Mini-mag. This has been an inspiring adventure for me bringing out this first issue. It has been an honour meeting wonderful people on the way and finding so much in the world of beauty and spirit right here at home. I hope that this magazine fills a space that is well needed for filling and that all our readers get the most out of its benefits. As it grows so the mini-mag will cram up with more and more interesting pages. We will have give-aways & competitions, and an experts corner. Our directory will increase, our distribution will widen and our range of products and services will become more diverse. We explore three sections inside the mag; The INNER You, The OUTER You and The EXTERNAL You. The Inner You will deal with aspects of the heart, mind and spiritual self, the Outer You will lend to aspects of the physical body, and the External You will include elements of the outer world be that in your home or in business. All these areas will be explored and expressed via articles, interviews and information. As a community, how marvellous it would be to support each other in business. In this mag we provide you with products and services available right here on the South Coast where there is so much available that there is no need to go wondering. The idea is to bring all that is of interest to woman into one accessible place, a place where we can utilize, enjoy and celebrate the gifts we have to share. Now that the holiday season is upon us and as a welcoming community we invite our holiday makers to visit our shops and businesses and hope that you are met with an array of choices to go by. On that note please let our advertisers know where you found them. I wish you all a pleasurable and memorable holiday season! Enjoy a taste of what is to come.

TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL No house should be without this essential oil, as it is one of the most powerful immune system stimulants and sorts out most viral, bacterial and fungal infections in a snap, while it is great to clean wounds and also relieves muscle aches and pains. Tea tree oil is one of the most powerful immune stimulant oils and helps fight infections of all kinds and helps clear the skin.

SUFFERING IS OPTIONAL How I learned to stop arguing with reality and leave my children's socks on the floor. words: byron katie ©

Before I woke up to reality, I had a symbol for all my frustration: my children's socks. Every morning they would be on the floor, and every morning I would think, “My children should pick up their socks.” It was my religion. You could say my world was accelerating out of control—in my mind, there were socks everywhere. And I would be filled with rage and depression because I believed these socks didn't belong on the floor, even though, morning after morning, that's where they were. I believed it was my children's job to pick them up, even though, morning after morning, they didn't. I use the image of children and socks, but you might find that for you the same thoughts apply to the environment or politics or money. We think these things should be different than they are right now, and we suffer because we believe these thoughts.

At 43, after 10 years of deep depression and despair, my real life began. What I came to see was that my suffering wasn't a result of not having control; it was a result of arguing with reality. I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn't believe them, I didn't suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause the suffering. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always. When you question your mind for the love of truth, your life always becomes happier and kinder. Inquiry helps the suffering mind move out of its arguments with reality. It helps us move into alignment with constant change. After all, the change is happening anyway, whether we like it

or not, in the dreamed world. Everything changes, it seems. But when we're attached to our thoughts about how that change should look, being out of control feels uncomfortable. Through inquiry, we enter the area where we do have control: our thinking. We question our thoughts about the ways in which the world seems to have gone crazy, for example. And we come to see that the craziness was never in the world, but in us. When we understand our thinking, we understand the world, and we come to love it. In that, there's peace. Who would I be without the thought that the world needs improving? Happy where I am right now: the woman sitting on a chair and until that changes, and until that changes... Pretty simple. The apparent craziness of the world, like everything else, is a gift we can use

to set our minds free. Any stressful thought you have about the planet, for example, or about life and death, shows you where you're stuck, where your energy is being exhausted as a result of not fully meeting life as it is, without conditions. You can't free yourself by finding a so-called “enlightened” state outside your own mind. When you question what you believe, you eventually come to see you're the enlightenment you've been seeking. Until you can love what is—everything, including the apparent violence and craziness—you're separate from the world, and you'll see it as dangerous and frightening. I invite everyone to put their fearful thoughts on paper, to do The Work-- question their stressful, fearful thoughts, and set themselves free. When the mind is not at war with itself, it is free, free to love, free to serve others and free to create what is beautiful.

Byron Katie is the founder of the life-changing process of inquiry called “The Work” and the bestselling author of Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, A Thousand Names for Joy, and Question Your Thinking, Change the World. Her newest book, Who Would You Be Without Your Story? was released in October 2008. On her website,, you will find information about her life-shifting nine-day School for The Work, her 28-day residential Turnaround House program, a list of upcoming events, a network of facilitators, a free hotline, a link to subscribe to her monthly newsletter, archived radio programs including Katie's recent interviews with Oprah, audio and video clips, articles, and basic information about Katie and The Work, including free materials to download, as well as a Store, complete with all of Byron Katie's books, cds, dvds, and more.
