FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS by Xavia Hendriksz

CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY by Carol Potter

LIFE COACHING by Dr. Dianne Visser

Have you ever considered that much of our “dis – ease” in this world has a direct link to our family trees? In working with families for over 50 years, Bert Helliger, the founder of Family Constellations, discovered that traumatic events, such as the premature death of a family member, early abandonment and/or crime and suicide in one generation can exert a powerful force on later generations. Entangled, at an energetic level, with the unhappiness of the past, family members often continue patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, fear, chronic illnesses and unfulfilled relationships. Bonded by a deep love that flows through the family system, someone in a future generation will often blindly sacrifice his or her own interests in an effort to ease the suffering or complete the unfinished business of another family member. This is a largely unconscious connection, with the “symptoms” of entanglement revealing themselves through the individual's current social, emotional, physical and/or economic difficulties.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the system in which the brain and spinal cord function. Imbalance in this system can cause sensory, motor or neurological disabilities. These may include chronic pain, motor co-ordination and learning disabilities as well as other physical and psychological problems.

Have a life question that you need help with? Unsure about your relationship, confused by your career, need a kick start to your self-esteem, or a vote of confidence on the next move to make in your Life? If you were nodding your head to those questions, a life coach can help you to find the path to a more balanced life. Together you can discover the way for you to be more effective at work and at home by uncovering what it is that you desire most in life. If you are willing to discover your life purpose by increasing your awareness of what you are not doing and begin to make conscious choices then you will be amazed to discover what you can achieve through Life Coaching. A Life Coach's job is to help you identify and then reach your goals, giving you a sense of purpose and enabling you to lead a satisfying and fulfilling life. Life Coaching also includes business coaching, personal coaching, health coaching and relationship (conflict in relationships) coaching. Coaches are trained to guide and offer positive support for people toward achieving their goals.

Xavia Hendriksz, the facilitator, has worked as a counseling psychologist and ecotherapist for the past 12 years.

Dr. Dianne Visser is an Holistic Life Coach and Metaphysical Practitioner. Qualified Hypnotherapist, Aromatherapist, Reflexologist. Reiki Master and Counsellor, She is a member of EPASA (Ethnomedicine) and HEPASA (Hypnotherapy, Ethno Psychology and Life Coaching).

Family Constellations take place in a group setting. Every person in the group benefits in some way from being part of a constellation. Each constellation unfolds in its own way. Some deep-rooted problems can be resolved in a single constellation, while others, like the layers of an onion, require several constellations to reach resolution.

For more information about this therapy, please contact Carol on 039 682 3000.

Family Constellations facilitate the disentanglement from these unconscious loyalties, and offer an opportunity for personal and inter-generational healing. The process brings about new perspectives on our families and our lives, and enables reclamation of our personal destiny. At an energetic level, this healing affects the entire family, past, present and future.

The Cranio-Sacral system has its own unique rhythm that can be felt throughout the body, which moves freely in optimal health. Injuries and disease, muscular strain and stress can disrupt it both locally and throughout the body. Using touch, a skilled practitioner monitors this rhythm to locate the source of obstruction or stress. They can then assist the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body to self-correct.

COLON HYDROTHERAPY by Petro Cosh

BODY TALK by Glynnis Steyn

“Death lurks in the colon!” This statement is popping up all over and maybe we should take it seriously. Do any of these sound familiar to you? - You used to be able to eat anything you wanted - but now you can't. - You often feel bloated after you eat. - You avoid certain types of food. - You often experience intestinal gas. - You have irregular bowels, constipation and pain. - You have food cravings, especially sweet ones. If you can relate to any of these symptoms, please take a few minutes to read the following: Every organ, gland and cell is in our bodies are affected by the condition and maintenance of our colon and liver and about 80% of our immune system lives in our gut. As you read this there is an excellent chance that you have between three and fifteen pounds of undigested faecal matter stuck in your colon." Our bodies are not built to continually eliminate ever-increasing amounts of toxins. If they were, we'd all be disease free and energetic! For most people, the signs of a colon dysfunction are so much a part of their everyday living experience that they don't even suspect their health is in danger. Colon Hydrotherapy is one of the fastest and most effective forms of detoxifying your colon and your entire body. One of the most sought after and surprise benefits of internal cleansing is weight loss. Colon cleansing helps remove impacted waste, parasites, and toxins from your digestive system, and you can increase nutrient absorption, build a stronger immune system, boost your metabolism, and reduce fatigue, bloating, gas, indigestion, and constipation...and a host of other unpleasant maladies. Our Colon cleansing programs are safe and natural, situated in a relaxed and private environment with constant monitoring and support.

Just as 90% of what makes up an iceberg lies unseen beneath the ocean, so too, do all concepts , emotions, habits and unconscious beliefs that create the story that is you lie hidden beneath the surface. Symptoms represent the 'tip” of the iceberg. Modern science recognizes that the body is composed of different forms of energy that operate at different frequencies. Each body system, each cell and each atom is in constant communication with every other part of the body. All the time! As we are exposed to the stresses of day-to-day life; such as exams, traffic,worrying and pollution; these lines of communication become disrupted. When healthy lines of communication become compromised in this way, it can often lead to a decline in physical, emotional and mental health. Just as the body heals a cut with a particular sequencing of physiological responses so the body prefers addressing healing in a certain order. BodyTalk seeks to resolve health issues without making diagnosis of the symptoms. The list of health challenges addressed by BodyTalk is limitless. The practitioner consults internal wisdom of the body to locate the weak energy circuits by using a gentle muscle testing technique

called Neuromuscular Biofeedback. Hand placements are used to highlight the malfunctioning energy circuits, either held by the client, the practitioner or both. The practitioner then lightly taps the client on the top of the head, which stimulates the brain centres and causes the brain to re-evaluate the state of the body's health and restore the necessary balance. Stimulating the heart by tapping the sternum, encourages the heart to store the newly balanced energy patterns in the body's cellular memory. This means that the body will remember these changes, resulting in long-lasting improvements in health and creating vibrant well being. Glynnis Steyn can be contacted on: 072 607 8789.

THE INNERYOU :: COMPLIMENTARY & ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

An Introduction to

Natural Medicine by Dr. Catherine Knight (Formerly Dr. Morris)

When asked what I believe when raising my kids, I believe in lots of love, laughter, fun and silliness, clean teeth and good food. Lots of running around, mud fights, dogs, bunnies and budgies, helping Mom with the chores!, and medicine that is a Natural choice, when we love someone so much... A medicine that only helps their body fight better and get stronger, not chemically control or suppress natural body functions in an attempt to take the symptoms away only to make them feel better in the moment. A medicine given to us by the creator, found freely all over the earth. I believe in true healing and giving my children the gift of longevity. In this short life, this is invaluable. I realise that the choice to begin using Natural Medicine is a difficult one, especially when one has grown up in a strictly conventional environment, scary too, what if it doesn't work? Well, I swear that it does! Myself, my husband, my children and my patients prove it to be so, and I promise to provide you with an understanding of the body and natural medicine's ability to heal, so that it becomes the easy and first choice when managing your child's health, and hopefully yours and hubby's too. If you have an open mind, you'll be amazed at what truths you will find! Look around you, ask your friends, ask yourself, how many people really feel healthy? Energetic, vibrant, happy, sleep soundly, have perfect pain-free regular menstrual cycles, perfect morning bowel, balanced weight and healthy diet. Health is not the absence of disease, but rather the abundance of well being, and Natural Medicine provides this, in abundance! When this most remarkable world was created we were given all our medicines, we just had to find them.

“Although very unpleasant, the vomiting or diarrhoea is not the disease, but rather the healing response i.e. what the body needs to do in order to get back into balance, to be healed.” (30min-4 hrs depending on the toxin) our system literally throws it out (or up depending on which end it's closest to!). This is our body's immediate attempt at getting rid of the toxins so that they do not penetrate deeper into the body. Although very unpleasant, the vomiting or diarrhoea is not the disease, but rather the healing response i.e. what the body needs to do in order to get back into balance, to be healed. The same is true for most other instinctual symptoms, snotty noses, sneezing, fevers etc. Drugs affect only the symptom; stop the diarrhoea, dry up the runny nose; which in effect disables the body from bringing about total healing, weakens the system and often creates deeper imbalance and further disease or complications. In future issues I will delve deeper into all these symptoms. This is important to understand because when one takes natural medicine the symptoms often get worse first - this is because the medicine works with the body to heighten the healing response (ie the fever, snotty nose or diarrhoea). After this, rapid resolution follows, health returns and the symptoms go away. The more the immune system is allowed to follow through with these processes, the more equipped it is to fight off the next invader and the recurrence, frequency and intensity of illness decreases. Natural medicine is usually condemned for taking too long – but can often act in only a day or so in a vibrant person or

But a brief explanation and an understanding of what we are trying to achieve with true healing allows you to "grin & bear" it for a while until the symptoms resolve, then you know that true health is restored. Children respond particularly well and rapidly to homoeopathic medicines due to their pure & uncluttered systems, making it the FIRST choice for any paediatric condition as it is completely safe & free of any side effects. What could be better than knowing that you are giving your child

very seldom now and for about 2-3 days at the most, I am so grateful for what I know, that I am able to look after my children like I can and give them the best gift I could give them - health & longevity. My aim: to help you give your kids this same gift with knowledge and understanding that allows you to make an informed choice when it comes to you and your family's healthcare. ©All rights reserved, copyright Dr. Catherine Knight, Author

Q. My son is 18 months old and has been on antibiotics twice in the last two months due to an ear infection. The ear infection began with teething which lead to a cold and cough. The ear infection was caused by mucous pushing up against his sinuses. The antibiotics cleared the ear infection but then my baby got genital thrush and the mucous came back. I am concerned that he will get another ear infection and I want to avoid antibiotics as it seems to do more harm than good at the end of the day. He is at creche as well which adds to the problem because he picks up whatever the other kids have. His immune system has been highly compromised and this vicious cycle doesn't seem to end. Please can you offer any suggestions? Desperate Mom, Margate A. This is such a common occurrence so I'm very glad to be able to help many “Desperate Mom's”. The first thing that must be done is put your baby onto a month's course of probiotics – the good bacteria we need in our gut. These are not only very important in digestion but also for the immune system and will drastically improve his overall immunity. There is often an actual fungal infection after a bacterial one, as the antibiotics wipe out all the good bacteria leaving the environment free for the fungi to colonise. The 2nd ear infection may well have actually been a fungal infection, but because every ear infection seems to be treated with an antibiotic, they often get worse. To treat the thrush, make a solution of about 10% bicarb & water and wash the area thoroughly once a day until cleared (it would be good to remember this treatment for any candida/thrush problem in any person). The mucus is not really the problem, this is the way that the body gets rid of the junk that the immune system is dumping, we need to help it clear. Its only when the mucus sits in the sinuses or chest that it may become infected, as this is a nice moist place for it to grow. Use methods to help clear and expel the mucus when it's there, make him sneeze, cough, use saline drops etc to help get it out and keep it clearing from the body, but don't give things to stop the mucus, as this contains all the debris and germs within the system that lead to the infections. Also put your baby onto some Olive Leaf extract, 8 drops 3-4 times a day to help clear the infection (the most brilliant natural antibiotic/antiviral and immune friendly herb). Keep him on 2 doses a day even when well at crèche so as to help his immune system stay on top of things. He will get illness from time to time as he is exposed to more viruses, this is life and is a part of the development of the immune system and unfortunately is a phase that he and every other child will and must go through. There are also great over the counter homeopathic remedies that will help his system fight these illnesses quickly, if all else fails, go and see a qualified Homeopath to make sure he is getting the right stuff.

Q. I am a 44 year old woman living on the South Coast. My life feels like too much too handle and I am going out of my mind feeling out of control. I have a steady job for the last 6 years but I am bored there and want to do something else with my life. I think it might be too late to change careers because of my age. I have two children in high school and I am worried that leaving my job will upset my finances which aren't that great anyways. My life feels like groundhog day. Too much to get done, nothing excites me anymore and the same old hum drum every day. Could you please offer me some peace of mind, are there ANY options for me? Out of sorts, Ramsgate A. Dear Out Of Sorts. You seem very stressed and anxious. 44 years old is not too old to implement changes in your life, but perhaps most importantly, have you considered what it is that you would enjoy doing? Is it possible for you to advance in your present work situation, by doing a course, which would enhance your skills? If not, would part time study be an option? Do you have any hobbies, or stimulation outside of work? This is important to create a balance in your life. When nothing excites us anymore, it could be a sign of depression. Consider seeing a professional if you feel that depression might be the case. Exercise is very important, and if finances are limited, simply put on a good pair of walking shoes, take the children and go for a walk every afternoon. It is possible to create change!

Q. I am 38 years of age and seem to have the same problem as my teenage daughter!! Acne, I thought I might have grown out of this. Why am I still getting breakout at my age!! Please help.

A. Dear Concerned. Your question is indeed of value and it is good that you show concern but no need to panic, simply ask yourself the following questions and if you have answered yes to any of them, please have yourself tested. Are you at a vulnerable age, over 35? ? Do you have a family history of diabetes? ? Are you overweight or obese? ? Have you gained or lost extreme weight lately? ? Do you lead a lifestyle lacking in exercise? ? Do you eat a diet rich in refined sugars and carbohydrates? ? Do you have blood pressure and/or cholesterol problems? ? Do you suffer from unusual thirst and/or frequent urination? ? Do you suffer from blurred vision? ? Do you have recurring infections? ? Are you noticing cuts and bruises that won’t heal? ? Are you always tired? ? Most people these days could probably answer yes to most of these questions and simply right it off to lifestyle without considering that they may be suffering from diabetes. This is exactly why diabetes is severely on the increase and it has severe complications if you are not checked in time. Please see your GP, nurse or pharmacist for testing.

A: Thank you that is a very good question. In teenagers our hormones is a big part of an acne problem for acne is caused by dead skin, oil and bacteria on the skin. Now in adults our daily routine of stress, not enough sleep and eating habits can contribute to Adult acne. It is unfortunate that is becoming a very common ailment amongst adults. What can we do to prevent or cure adult acne is firstly water your skin alone needs 800ml of water a day to flush out toxin from the skin. Then eating habits; if you are filling you body with junk and oily foods there will be too much of this in the body to handle and because your skin is the biggest organ the other smaller eliminatory organs troughs their waist on to the skin. And then stress and sleeplessness. There are 2 very important components in regulation sebum (oil) on your skin; if you are over stressed and tired your hormones which controls the oil on your skin becomes over active and creates a oily environment for bacteria to breed and cause a pimple. So my best advice would be drink at least 2liters of water a day, find a way for you to relive your stress a facial once a month and a low oil diet will bring great improvement to your skin.

FOCUS ON :: THE INNERYOU

FOCUS ON ROENEL EVANS

ROENEL EVANS is a Master Psychic Reader, Medium, Healer and Advisor.

Roenel shares

Positive Thought

We've all heard about the importance of thinking positively. We've all tried - with varying success - to do it but it's an uphill battle when you feeling the bottom just feel out of your world. Roenel Evans of Holistic Angel healing has had enough misfortune in her life to be forgiven for feeling negative about things, but that isn't the case. In fact, she is so positive that she can take on other people's troubles; lift there burdens and cure their illnesses. This isn't about faith-healing. It isn't about mysticism and forces contrary to accepted religion. This is about a powerful mind that is prepared to take on – conquer a mountain of negative energy that is causing other people to suffer. "It's the question of mindset" says Roenel. "When you hold on to negative energy, it can make you throw away the negativity of the past - I take it on myself, so that they are free to have only positive energy. With positive energy, the body will heal. I use my hands to transmit the energy, but it's not only my hands that heal, only the positive mindset that I share with my client." The power of positive thinking, deepdown, most of us believe in it, perhaps as a corollary to our religion, but it takes a strong mind to practice it and extraordinary level of empathy to pass it on to others. Roenel has both and therein lays the secret of her healing hands.

THE SACRED FEMININE Eostre is the Goddess of fertility and new beginnings, we take this opportunity to embrace Eostre's passion for new life and let our own lives take the new direction we have wanted for so long. Eostre (pron East-ra) was the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the dawn, from whom "East" (where the sun rises) and "Easter" got its Issue No.2 . Mar/Apr 2010 . THE NEW BEGINNINGS ISSUE

Roenel has been gifted with the power of Psychic Reading and she is able to read on a number of levels such as, clairsentience (picking up on feelings), clairaudience (psychic hearing) and clairvoyance (seeing pictures or images). In addition, her abilities allow her to pick up information on those of your loved ones or others (living, or on the other side) around you in your life. She would love to have the opportunity to help you by passing on their messages and Guidance for you. In her healing practice she consults daily with many people who are desperate for advice and remedies regarding the problems and ‘dis-eases’ manifesting themselves in their life that just seem to defy solutions in any ordinary manner. Other than her healing Psychic Readings she also offers hands on healing as she has extended her abilities and is qualified and certificated in the following: Karuna Reiki Master, Atlantean Reiki Master, Lightarian Reiki Master, Angel Healing Therapist, Angel Reader, Crystal and Energy Healer, Psycho-Therapist. Roenel Evans is internationally registered. She went to the U.K in 2008 to heal and teach. In 2009 she was invited by a psychic in South Africa, Sylvia Katz to do a live show in Cape Town which was a great success and so will be doing more of those in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg this year. Roenel also works with companies to help get them off the ground as she has insight and information which is channeled, She has a client base all over the world. Roenel Evans can be contacted on 039 312 0531 or 082 452 3004. E-mail: roenel.reiki@webmail.co.za

By honouring the Feminine Divine, we reconnect with our inner goddess. This issue we celebrate the goddess Eostre. name - as the fertility goddess of the Northern European peoples, her legend was manipulated by the invading Romans - newly Christianised, they merged Eostre's spring legend to coincide with the time of Christ's resurrection. The Rabbits and painted eggs are both potent symbols of fertility, reflecting the nature of

this spring Goddess. These ancient symbols are still found in our Easter celebrations today when the Easter bunny hides chocolate eggs for the children to find. She is a warm, dynamic and compassionate Goddess whose archetype reminds you to look after the magical child that lies within us all.

HAIR & MAKE-UP :: THE OUTERYOU

CHOOSE YOUR STYLE What tips do you have for me if I have a heart shaped face. ? Decrease volume in the crown and at the side, ear areas. Adding curl and fullness to the chin area can help round out the look. Wisps on the jaw area or a fringe can help give a wider rounder appearance. Avoid styles that mirror the heart shape.

The shape of your face matters when a choosing a hair style. Here are some tips...

Keeping hair off the face at the cheek area is also recommended.

What tips do you have for me if I have a diamond shaped face? Decrease volume in the crown and at the side, ear areas. Adding curl and fullness to the chin area and just above the temples can help round out the look. Avoid styles that mirror the diamond shape.

What tips do you have for me if I have a square shaped face? Styles that round out your hair can decrease the appearance of a square face shape. Adding curl, angled or wispy fringe, and a few wisps on the cheek area will all help. A cut that allows for some height is also a good idea. Wear a side part as opposed to a center part. Avoid a straight fringe and hanging hair.

What tips do you have for me if I have a round face? Decrease the volume at the sides and ear area. Increase height and length should be beyond the chin or just above it. A side part works well.

How can I tell what shape my face is? Pull your hair back off your face and tie it in a pony tail

HOW TO GET SMOKEY EYES Step 1 – Get Your Eyes Ready Begin by applying a light shade of concealer to the under eye area, and all over the top lid. It prepares your eyes for the eyeshadow that you are going to apply. Step 2 – Use the Liner First, line both the top and bottom rims with an eye pencil, paying close attention to going into the lash line itself. If you have small eyes apply liner starting from the middle of the under eye to the outside of the eye. If your eyes are large feel free to line from corner to corner. Step 3 – Add the Shadow

Just follow these 5 steps and get that smokey look for Autumn.

With a small eye shadow brush or an earbud, soften the edges of the eye pencil line. Apply a dark shadow using a spongetip applicator, smudge brush or earbud directly over the penciled area and smudge. The shadow helps to set and soften the look. Step 4 - The Final Touch Next apply a lighter shadow in a neutral tone with a larger eye shadow brush. Encircling the entire eye area, be sure to soften and graduate outward for that perfect blended look. Add Mascara! Hint: If you want your eyes to look A Safety First Salon!

Issue No.2 . Mar/Apr 2010 . THE NEW BEGINNINGS ISSUE

if possible or if it is short slick it back with water. Look straight into the mirror and trace the shape with a bar of soap onto the mirror. Make sure to only trace your face following the hairline around your temples and forehead. Is it Oval, Round, Square, Diamond, or Heart shaped?

larger – Pull your liner upward when lining your bottom lashes instead of out from the top liner! This will make your eyes look larger and rounder! Step 5 – Finish up with Lips If you want to go for a classic smoky eye look, lightly line lips with a natural color and add some sheer color in peach, caramel, or barely there pink.

After a year of hard work, blood sweat and tears, it all came together perfectly for designer Felicia Berning with her new fashion line Bohdi. The show was an enormous success thanks to the valued support of those who attended! Without support, such an event would have been in vain! In spite of the sweltering heat, the guests remained ultra cool in attitude! The models were professional and approached everything with having a great time in mind. There was excitement and team spirit going on behind the scenes that would make all Zululanders proud! Lights camera and action, and one would have been easily mistaken to be watching Fashion week in THE FACE OF BOHDI Paris! Felicia Berning also ELOISE BRIEL chose the “face” of her new line, which will represent Bohdi for the year 2010. She is Eloise Briel, a local beauty who was very captivating on stage as she strutted her stuff in Bohdi dresses. Now it's on to bigger pastures as we plan our next show for this fall/winter season! “Felicia will be planning another show on the South Coast in the near future, MY Health and Beauty Minizine will keep you posted.” E-mail: felicia.berning@telkomsa.net

THE OUTERYOU :: ESSENTIAL OILS

ESSENTIAL OILS

Over the next few issues we will be introducing essential oils to readers, we will discuss each oil, it’s properties and uses ... BUT FIRSTLY...

Essential Oils by Trish Moonsamy

It's important to be aware of safety guidelines when using essential olis. Essential oils are concentrated natural plant chemicals and it's imperative to know as much about essential oils as you can, before using them. Safety and Caution when using Aromatherapy oils Always be aware of the following factors when using essential oils. ? Essential oils are very powerful

and should be used in small quantities and properly diluted in base oil. ? Never to be used near the eyes ? Never to be taken internally, some oils are toxic. ? Keep out of children and pets reach ? If taken internally seek medical attention immediately ? Use recommended dosages only. ? Only use pure essential oils (you can identify them by their Latin names). There is always a risk of skin irritation, try doing a patch test if you are not sure about the oil you are using.

Photo toxicity ? The following oils are photoxic,

which simply put is that they can cause discoloration of the skin if the skin is exposed to the sun or ultraviolet light. ? Bergamot ? Cumin ? Lemon ? Lemon verbena ? Lime ? Orange When to use caution or avoid using oils ? During pregnancy ? Epilepsy ? High blood pressure ? Low blood pressure Pregnancy: Some oils promote menstruation or have high toxicity levels and are therefore not suitable for pregnant women. If there is a history of miscarriage avoid using essential oils.

The following oils must be avoided during pregnancy. Angelica, basil, carrot seed, cedarwood, clary sage, clove bud, cinnamon leaf, citronella, cypress, fennel, hyssop, jasmine, juniper, lovage, majopram, mellissa, myrrh, origanum, parsley, peppermint, rose, rosemary, sage, tarragon, thyme Epilepsy: Avoid fennel, hyssop and sage.

Many people think that yoga is just stretching. But while stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement or more slowly to increase stamina and perfect the alignment of the pose. In addition to practicing the poses, yoga classes also include instruction on breathing, self reflection, meditation and an inspirational reading by the teacher. The true meaning of Yoga is union. The true purpose of Yoga is to bring one to a state of Total Living. We think of the

union occurring between the mind, body and spirit. The physical side of yoga keeps us fit but the fountain of youth has to do with the spirit as we begin to listen internally to ourselves. We become more focused and patient and learn to respect the body, to become more mindful and to remain present in the moment. Through doing Yoga over a period of time we learn to dispel tension and fatigue, become more flexible, build strength, tone the muscles of the body, create body awareness, self confidence a n d i m p rove p o st u re t h ro u g h alignment, create mental calmness,

better breathing, stress reduction and simply learn to relax. Yoga is a never ending learning process for both the teacher and the pupil. It's never too late to begin a yoga practice. Born and raised on the South Coast Tanya Hielckert has been pursuing her passion for the past 10 years. She is affiliated and trained through the YYI (Young Yoga Institute) as well as a member of the Yoga Teachers Fellowship and has gained a lot of knowledge through the Ishta school.

FENG SHUI :: THE EXTERNALYOU

An Introduction to

Feng Shui

by Debbie Fox

The art of creating an harmonious environment that will nurture and sustain you. We all wish to live in peace, harmony and have good fortune and abundance in our lives. We all feel that these attributes are a basic need for living; to have some sort of balance, to be able to live from the centre of our souls and to be able to create what we were meant to create in our life journey.

The words Feng Shui loosely translated mean, wind and water which mean that it covers everything in life. Wind being the oxygen we breathe or the Chi that enhances our lives and water without which we would also not exist. Both elements make up the planet Earth and create the environment that we are living in. Both are vital and influence our lives at every turn.

Simple practical remedies create a world of difference in our lives. The practice of Feng Shui is the judicious balancing and enhancing of the directional negative or beneficial flow of earth and heavenly Chi which is vital if we are to create harmony health and good fortune in our lives. Feng Shui is practiced in most Asian countries and is said to be over three thousand years old. Practiced by the old Feng Shui Masters who were affiliated to the courts. These Masters ensured the victories of the Emperors and thus were deemed very powerful. Due to this power they lost their heads a good deal of the time. In modern times it is the modern Emperor, the business man, who now employees the Feng Shui Master to ensure that his business prospers more than his competitors. They don't seem to kill them these days. Not quite done. Most buildings in Hong Kong, Singapore and many other large Asian cities will not have inhabitants unless the building has been Feng Shuied. And that is why these countries are dominant in the world of today in business. In our own homes and businesses it is possible to employ these very same simple principles to ensure that we too can benefit from these ancient practices. The introduction of simple

Issue No.2 . Mar/Apr 2010 . THE NEW BEGINNINGS ISSUE

Feng Shui enhancements into a failing business has turned the business around, or improved the home environment to bring in health, harmony and prosperity. The practice of Feng Shui, employs simple adjustments, such as the art of placement, sound, light, movement, water, colour and the absence of clutter, use of open space, clean air, good plants and views. Simple practical remedies create a world of difference in our lives. The world of Feng Shui is how we enhance our living spaces and lives. It is a most fascinating subject and can enhance one's life tremendously.

The world of Feng Shui is how we enhance our living spaces and lives. We can equate life to the following; We have Heaven luck (the talents and karma we get from God), man luck (what we do with those talents and karma) and Earth luck, which is Feng Shui. Good Feng Shui ensures that if good luck comes to us we can enhance it with good Feng Shui, and if bad luck comes to us, as it does to all of us, we can mitigate it with Feng Shui. Debbie Fox has practiced as a Feng Shui Consultant for the past fourteen years, in South Africa and overseas. She work predominantly in Durban and Johannesburg and does a fair amount over the internet. Her clients are varied and include homes, businesses, farms, stables, shops such as restaurants and health shops. Within shopping centres she assists clients with the placement and design of new buildings. In addition to the Feng Shui she is also involved in checking the geopathic stress of the building. Geopathic stress is made up of Ley Lines, electromagnetic smog and other energies that don't belong in the building which have a detrimental effect on our lives. Blocking these energies brings good health. Debbie can be contacted on: 082 678 0976 E-mail: debbiefox@telkomsa.net

CALCITE is one of the most widely distributed minerals found on Earth. This gemstone can be found in almost any colour: black, white, red, yellow, orange, green, blue, clear and brown. It is found either as a transparent or opaque gemstone. Stalactites and stalagmites found in caves are Calcite. Aragonite has the same chemical composition as Calcite but has a different crystal structure. This is an extremely gentle gemstone. It works with such love and kindness, yet at the same time has a cleansing and refreshing energy. Because Calcites are such gentle and loving gemstones, they in return ask that we treat them in the same manner. Calcite must not be

IN THE GARDEN

In March we're planting parsley and thyme. Not only do they enhance the flavor of our cooking, they also have great medicinal value too. Plant thyme in well drained soil in a sunny position. It's great in rockeries and does well in containers. It's extremely low maintenance as it requires very little water and thrives in dry, inhospitable areas of the garden. As we approach winter, add thyme to soups and stews. It's a warming herb and an excellent immune booster that helps fight colds, flu and sore throats. Just add a teaspoon of crushed leaves

RECONNECTIVE HEALING A New Paradigm in Healing. Everyone's experience with Reconnective healing is unique. Often healings are reported in an instant, and sometimes it takes a bit longer. If you're lucky, your healing will come in the form you anticipated and if you're really lucky it will be the one that the Universe has in mind especially for you. Distant healing, in my and Eric Pearl's experience can be as powerful and sometimes more powerful than hands on healing. I would be delighted to share some testimonials in this regards.

ABOUT US MY HEALTH & BEAUTY is an holistic lifestyle and feminine care Minizine that incorporates Body, Mind and Spirit as a whole. It connects and recognises the modern woman's needs giving encouragement, inspiration and joy to her life's journey in all its many facets. The minizine covers all that which is of interest to women across all cultures at home and in business. It explores the diversity among women in our community and facilitates, through articles and information, a better consideration of our different interests as we educate and support one another emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. As home-makers and business women, we are always striving to create a more beautiful space in which to live and share with our loved ones. We have been given the gift of creation – the ability to manifest something FROM ourselves. By invoking and sharing our talents with others we find our authenticity and self worth. MY Health & Beauty offers you a space to let others know what that wonderful gift of yours is and where they can find it.
