Welcome to the Spring edition of Innerself. Every issue of this paper takes on a distinct tone and flavour of its own, often with our writers tapping into and synchronistically discussing similar topics. We as editors don’t consciously set a theme but enjoy watching it organically reveal itself to us each issue. And it’s always such a joy watching it naturally unfold. With this issue, the collective consciousness has chosen to explore Freedom, in all its myriad form and formlessness … The need to be free is really the ego feeling its own self-made entrapment. In truth, Freedom is. Freedom is our own true nature. As Unconditioned Awareness, there is no movement into or away from This, this that we always are and always will be. The only movement “towards” or “away” from This, takes place in our minds. Our thoughts, our feelings, our emotions, our sensations … all simply happen, yet the pull “for” or “against” them is what creates and perpetuates the semblance of separation, the split that is the need to go towards or away from something else, something other than what is, ultimately the movement away from This … and that’s why we suffer. Freedom is. These two words speak volumes about truth, reality and suffering. As soon as our attention falls into identification with our thoughts, we lose ourselves yet again in the egoic trance that holds 99% of humanity captive. It’s subtle … yet, it’s also very simple: Freedom is. It’s not a constructed or created form of freedom but the actual Free Beingness that allows for all of life to continue to live and evolve. This innate freedom is the very fabric of life itself, it’s the backdrop of life and it’s also the foreground. It’s all this very same one Freedom, breathing Itself into each moment, being each
moment … allowing all of creation to pulsate, expand, contract and express and be. Yet, something so constant, so present and so readily available is so very easily overlooked. Why and how? Our inability to recognise what’s actually happening keeps us captive and spellbound in our heads. The truth is, free we are … vast, eternal, pure, clear, loving and so very real ... just as we are. This … This … This … This one 4 letter word points to This that is. If we let go, stop trying to hold It, stop trying to find It, stop trying to know It … This reveals Itself. Freedom is … simply drop back in … not in movement, but in that simple allowing that calls us back to the Heart. Here, all is clear. The Heart is the Infinite Eternal Spacious Beingness that simply is and simply allows … see This … Know This … Be This ... Freedom is in This. In the Flow … Enza Vita & Leo Drioli

Does Egypt Call Out to You?
There are moments in our lives when the mysteries of the universe call us on a journey, no place holds these mysteries like Egypt. I invite you to join me on a journey of a lifetime and discover and reconnect with ancient Egypt. If you feel a spiritual connection or attraction to the land of Egypt, to the Gods, and myths of the ancient land then this journey is for you. By joining me on this adventure in May 2014 you will have an opportunity to meet and discuss your beliefs and experiences with others on a similar path. We will be accompanied by an Egyptian Egyptologist who will offer insights and knowledge into ancient Egyptian history and culture, as well as modern day Egypt.
JOIN ME ON MY NEXT VISIT TO EGYPT IN MAY 2014 “A modern day pilgrimage” is how Mark Anns, a psychologist with an interest in transpersonal psychology, described the tours he accompanies to Egypt. Mark was trained by Mary Shaw (Consciousgateways), and in May 2014 he will accompany a small group of participants, who will explore their own connection to the ancient land of Egypt. When asked why Egypt, Mark stated Egypt has a fascination for many, and there are those who feel a calling to journey to the ancient sites. The tour offers the opportunity to immerse yourself and experience this connection. www.spiritualtoursegypt.com.au
The Way of Liberation An Interview with Adyashanti
BY LEO DRIOLI & ENZA VITA Adyashanti is an American-born spiritual teacher devoted to serving the awakening of all beings. He is the author of The Way of Liberation, Falling into Grace, True Meditation, and The End of Your World. His teachings are an open invitation to stop, inquire, and recognize what is true and liberating at the core of all existence. Asked to teach in 1996 by his Zen teacher of 14 years, Adyashanti offers teachings that are free of any tradition or ideology. “The Truth I point to is not confined within any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine, but is open to all and found within all.” Adyashanti will be holding a 7 day silent retreat in Mangrove, NSW in October 2013. For more details on his events, books and teachings visit www. adyashanti.org LEO: You came from a Zen background but you don’t actually teach Zen Buddhism, why?
ADYASHANTI: There’s not really a specific reason. When I started to teach I taught it pretty much the same manner that my teacher did. I had meditation cushions and mats … I’d set them up and everybody would face the wall and meditate just like we’d done with my teacher. We did some chanting and I did a short 15 minute talk. It was all modeled on what I’d done with my teacher who I’d studied with for 14 years. And then one day I started to entertain a few questions after my short little talk and I was really moved by how sometimes in just a few moments of dialogue I could help someone see through something that they might have been meditating on for years. Occasionally I would save people a lot of time just by doing it in a public forum … Because in Zen Buddhism most of the questioning is done in private between a teacher and student in what they call Dokasan. Anyway I just saw that this more public question and answer thing had the power to it so I started to extend the time that I’d be engaged with people in discussion and just slowly it took on the form that it has today. It just really naturally evolved. When I was doing it I had never heard of things like Satsang or any of these kind of words. It just evolved that way and it also goes back to my original intention. I was really interested when I started … I just had to find out what enlightenment was. Every time I read the word I just had to know what it was. Even though I became an official Buddhist, my intention wasn’t to become anything other than what I already am. I really just wanted to know what this enlightenment thing was all about. So that kind of naturally started to manifest itself when I taught and I was more than happy to use Buddhist teachings that would help, or Christian teachings or anything that I thought would help me communicate better. That was really my interest. Leo: I was listening to an interview you did a few years back and the interviewer asked you what your teaching was. He said he listened to you speak but he couldn’t pick up what the actual teaching was and you said, Well that it’s probably because you address each individual’s needs … so you kind of said, I struggle to find what my teaching is too but I’ve come to your “Way of Liberation” book and teachings lately and I realise that you’ve actually done that now, you’ve formulated the teaching, is that right?
ADYASHANTI: Yeah, that’s the reason I put out that book. I wanted to come up with a really condensed form of what my teaching is. All of those elements that are in that book can be found in my teaching over the last 15 years but I never really presented in that format. So I was always clear on what the aim of my teaching is but I started to realise that for people listening, they weren’t always exactly clear on just what the teaching is. That was one of the motivations to write it down in a really direct and simplified version. LEO: It’s actually fantastic. I must say I’ve read it and it’s really really powerful, being that condensed it captures everything so succinctly.
ADYASHANTI: I’m delighted it feels that way for you.
LEO: At the end of your book “The Way of Liberation”you describe a sort of imaginary journey that you put together about what happens in awakening … was this based on your own journey?
ADYASHANTI: It wasn’t strictly. It’s a sort of fictionalized account of my own experience. I wouldn’t say it’s exactly as it happened to me but it was certainly pretty much the elements of what happened to me as a different story. So it was a way to give in a story format what I saw is some of the really important elements of awakening. I think sometimes stories contain or express something that you can’t do just in straight conceptional language. Immortality is something you can kind of get a sense of it more than getting the teaching. LEO: I must say I enjoyed it being at the end; it really brought everything together beautifully. In the new book you really explain it as a stripped down practical guide to spiritual liberation and enlightenment. Can I ask you how many of your students have actually achieved this?
ADYASHANTI: Well I couldn’t tell you numbers coz I don’t keep track of numbers. If you ask me has anybody I’d taught come to it? I would say yeah, quite a few, but I wouldn’t really know how many. I mean it’s one of the things about awakening, enlightenment, liberation, as I see they’re much more fluid concepts than people think they are. In other words, not all awakenings are the same. Even in a legitimate awakening it can be a vast array of how deep it goes, how thorough it is, how much it is embodied into one’s life. You know all those elements can vary greatly from one individual to the other. When I started to teach 15 years ago if I could just get one person in my lifetime to really realize the truth really clearly and be able to live it, I would be thrilled. If I had a goal, that is my goal. I’ve been really pleasantly surprised over the years that it’s been many, many, many, years that first person has really woken up and lived it to a great degree, so there have been many others since. Beyond that I couldn’t possibly it’s been 50 or a 100 or … It’s a good question. To me, the bottom line of any spiritual teaching, the only thing that’s important is: Does it work? It’s not really how eloquent it is or how subtle it is or refined … but at the end of the day what’s really important is, Does it really work? So I think your question really comes out of that and is an expression of a very important question … does it work? And anybody, no matter what spiritual teaching they may be utilizing … that’s a really important question for them individually which is Does this seem to be working for me? And if it isn’t, you’ve got to review how you interacting with the teaching, or you might need to move on and find something that really works for you. ENZA: What is this Enlightenment that you speak of, because the word is used out there in all the different spiritual teachings and everybody’s got a slightly different definition of it? Just wondering what your definition of enlightenment is?
ADYASHANTI: Well you know, like most things in life, you can’t define it (Laughter) but it doesn’t mean that I’m not going to give it a try. (Laughter) ENZA: I thought you’d say that. (Laughter)
ADYASHANTI: Like anything, the definition isn’t really much like the real thing at all, so I think we should all hold the definitions very, very lightly instead of very tightly. I mean I think there are few basic elements that have to be considered when we talk about enlightenment. One of them would be something that’s really fundamental. By fundamental I mean something that is not just transitory or passing but the real seeing of ourselves not in some way separate, to see ourselves as whole, by whatever means you want to express that. To see our essential nature is that which is the whole, whether we want to call that Buddhanature or the Divine or just the One. I think that’s the key element. If that’s not there, we really can’t be talking “Enlightenment” … Enlightenment is really to be waking up to the whole, to the oneness of all existence. Although to me that’s the first step. You can realise that and still have a lot of egoic content going on, and a
ADYASHANTI lot of inner contradiction happening. To me part of this trajectory from awakening to liberation would be the capacity to, number one: To be able to live what you realise, so you’re expressing it in the way you move into the world of time and space. So it’s not just a private inner realisation or inner experience but it literally becomes who you are through your humanity, to be the much more mature expression of enlightenment. And also what I would include to be a really mature expression of enlightenment would be the experience of non-division, not in the metaphysical sense like I just mentioned before but non-division in the psychological sense. Where we do not internally have divisive psychological forces creating friction. I think that those elements are indispensible if we’re going to talk about enlightenment about liberation. ENZA: What is the greatest barrier to awakening and what is the most valuable thing that we can do in our daily life to wake up?
ADYASHANTI: Oh … you guys are so full of good questions aren’t you? (Laughter) They sound so harmless. (Laughter) Oh gosh, I’m just playing with you … that’s a great question but the reason why I think it is not simple to answer, is because I’m really hesitant to give pat answers to questions like that. In “The Way of Liberation” it’s what I call the False Self. The False Self that sees itself as separate is probably our greatest barrier to awakening. In the metaphysical sense it’s very true that it is a barrier but when we get down to a specific person, what they are actually dealing with … what their particular barrier is can be very different from person to person. Their particular type of separateness … the way they feel and create separateness ... that can vary so much. So that’s why I’m kind of a little hesitant to give you one answer. Because I know over all these years working with people that it’s very unique from person to person and it always has something to do with the way we see ourselves as separate from the whole. ENZA: So this brings us to the role of the Teacher and their importance in guiding us. Is it absolutely necessary to have a Teacher to awaken?
ADYASHANTI: No, it’s not. It all also comes down to an individual person. For one person the answer may be absolutely yes but for another person the answer may be no. It’s very individual; some people really, really need a teacher. Their chances of finding their own way out of their confusion are very, very slim if left on their own. And there are other people - you know Ramana Maharshi didn’t have a teacher - you know there are other examples of people who have awakened but didn’t have a teacher at all. It’s so individual, some people do and some people don’t. ENZA: So what is the role of the Teacher in your teachings?
ADYASHANTI: Well I think the first role of a teacher is to Continued to page 6

THE PRACTICE OF PRESENCE
Allowing Natural Meditation to Happen BY ENZA VITA In our day to day life, we are always habitually involved with thoughts and projections, constantly trying to manipulate whatever comes up in our life experiences by either moving toward the ones we like or moving away from the ones we don’t . But the thoughts themselves are not the problem. The problem is that we are constantly reacting to them and so every thought that arises in the mind continually distracts us, “seemingly” obscuring our true nature - natural awareness. By natural awareness here I refer to our true naked nature, stripped bare of these movements of the mind. Since the mind depends on this constant movement for its continued existence, abiding in natural awareness, what I call The Practice of Presence, is to be internally still and undistracted. This actually means to leave everything that arises in our experience (thoughts, sights, sounds and sensations) as it is, without manipulations or strategies. We simply relax in the naked ordinary awareness that is seeing through our eyes, hearing through our ears and feeling through our hearts right now, without trying to correct or replace anything, This is not a passive surrender but a letting go to being totally present and totally relaxed at the same time, without any artificiality or manipulation. Instead of our usual habit of grasping and making the moment solid, we open, dissolve and ‘let everything be’. This is essentially the complete practice. There is nothing else that we are doing. Through this natural meditation, we begin to clearly see the difference between the state of habitual reaction to life and the simple effortless non distracted space of our natural nature. Once the habitual grasping has been disabled by “wearing out” the mind habit of accepting and rejecting, then thoughts, emotions and sensations continue to arise but they are not fixated upon and solidified by the mind.
We discover, as each thought arises, that it does so in the very same space in which the last thought and the thought before that arose and that all experiences, including the body-mind we believe to be, happen in THAT. We realize that we aren’t a distinct someone inhabiting the body that we are looking out of. We realize that we and everything emerging out of present moment awareness are identical. At this point, whether there are thoughts or not, natural awareness is no longer obscured.
Q & A about the “practice” Q: Can you explain how The Practice of Presence is done?
A: The Practice of Presence is simply to remain undistracted from present wakefulness, to relax and open in all directions, without spacing out and losing our alertness. To be as open and relaxed as possible while being present and lucid with all our senses wide open. The words “remain undistracted” seem to point to a mind-made effort, but what I’m talking about is to leave the mind as it is and rest in the cognizing intelligence that is aware of reading these words right now . We don’t strive to reach some “amazing goal” or some “advanced state.” Nor do we use the practice to “go deep into ourselves” or to withdraw from the world. Instead, we just trust, connect, and realize what is already here. If “interesting” experiences happen, don’t give too much attention to them. Spiritual experiences and lights shooting out of our third eye have nothing to do with awakening. They are just spiritual entertainment, coming and going in the impersonal awareness that we are. While all forms that appear are vibrant with uniqueness and meaning, don’t cling to these forms and let them go the moment after they present themselves and return to pure unfabricated awareness. At first we may only be able to rest in this aware
presence for a few seconds before we are distracted by thoughts. When thoughts arise, what has happened? Has awareness gone anywhere? Have we gone anywhere? No, our attention has just gotten caught in a thought. When this happens, refrain from judging your practice or your progress. Everything that arises is simply the play of awareness and everything is naturally perfect just as it is. Every time you get distracted, just simply bring the attention back toward awareness itself. Relax into this aware presence many times throughout the day. At first, if we try to sustain this for long stretches, it can become a goal-oriented mental practice. So it’s better to spend time as often as you can during the day just being still within this “objectless,” timeless, eternal, and enduring space. When you are able to truly penetrate this practice, what you thought you were dissolves into a space that is free of any concepts of self. At the same time you also experience a sharp lucidity without thought. These two aspects together are what is called presence or awareness, your natural original nature. Then you see nakedly, clearly and you realize that you have always been THIS. Q: During the Practice of Presence , I have been experiencing the truth of my being as an infinite spaciousness.
A: Now let that spaciousness go. Why? Because it is still a mind state. Our original nature is open, spacious, lucid awareness, but not as an egoic experience—“Ahh, I am so open, so vast, so spacious that “I” encompass the universe of universes!” We may feel amazingly open and spacious, but the “I” is still there. This is still a dualistic mind state and not our real nature at all. Who we truly are is not an object that can be held in the mind. As soon as the notion of spaciousness arises, the ego has turned it into an object.
As we familiarize once again with our natural nature, it is common to experience a sense of unconfined spaciousness giving rise to bliss, peace, clarity. This is a wonderful state and yes, there can be a huge sense of freedom in it, but “you” are still there holding and perceiving the spaciousness. So now you need to let the spaciousness go. At some point you may begin to notice that you are “staying within the spaciousness.” So you let the “staying” go too. And then you may notice that there is still a very slight desire of wanting the spaciousness again. So you let that go as well, and as you let go more and more of any state where an I or me is present, no matter how subtle, you become the spaciousness itself, awareness itself.

what is enlightenment and what does it matter anyway? Whatever experience is occurring right now, cosmic or ordinary, supersedes every other one because it is the one happening in this present moment. Every moment is in fact a perfect mirror of the divine impulse to manifest into the world. Life’s mystery and its mundaneness are equally divine. This brilliant contribution to our modern understanding of authentic identity and Presence brings us to a new awareness of ourselves and our innate wholeness and completeness. Enza’s personal awakening story, in the first few pages, is worth the price of admission. Enlightened wisdom is like an endangered natural resource today, which we overlook at our peril; let’s join in exploring and developing our own innate transformational resources for a change. — Lama Surya Das, international bestselling author of Awakening the Buddha Within This is an outstanding offering to our appreciation of the genuine voice of Pure Presence. It brings us to a deep awareness of what it truly means to study and realize the self and our intrinsic true nature as that which is already perfect, whole and complete. A book absolutely worthy of your time and attention. — Genpo Roshi, international bestselling author of Big Mind, Big Heart

A Very Human, Deeply Spiritual Need pects of our humanness makes us potentially destructive – or deeply empathic and connected.The work of artist Marina Abramovic is a particularly telling demonstration of our potential natures. She performed two significant pieces of ‘live’ art. In the first she wanted to test the limits of human relationships. Marina placed upon a table 72 objects that people were allowed to use (a sign informed them) in any way that they chose. Some of these were objects that could give pleasure, while others could be wielded to inflict pain, or to harm her. Among them were a rose, a feather, honey, a whip, scissors, a scalpel, a gun and a single bullet. For six hours she remained passive – and un-engaged (not making eye contact) – allowing the audience to do as they chose. Initially, members of the audience reacted with caution and modesty, but as time passed (and the artist remained passive) people began to act more aggressively – ultimately reaching its breaking point with someone pointing the gun at her head. This became a famous example of relevance to psychological research – revealing the strong inclination for humans to digress to destructive behaviour when personal and engaging connection is absent. The same thing happens with mob mentality. In stark contrast, Abramovic performed another live piece (over 736 hours), called ‘The ar tist is Present’, in which she invited spectators to sit and gaze into her eyes. The dynamic was so overwhelming – bringing tears to many peoples eyes –it sparked the need for support groups to be established. The most commonly repor ted feeling was one of a deep, unexplainable soul connection. Interestingly, Facebook sits on

the edge of both personalised connection (sharing private moments and details with large groups of people) and the impersonal (lack of direct living interaction), reflecting the diverse range of our human behaviours. Its enormous success proves that our need to connect is very real. It is our awareness of this need that paves the way for us to enter into a more meaningful life. Our ability to connect – and the depth to which we connect – is dependant on the way we connect. When we are deeply present, centred in our self, centred in the moment, we are most capable of being deeply centred – and deeply connected – with another and with life as it truly is. The encounter is one that is unifying, uplifting and enriching. It is also the only way in which we feel a power that is greater than our individual sense of self (between ‘our self’ and ‘other’) – but rather the sense of a unified soul. When we are connected in this way only love flows – it is impossible for feelings or acts of violence to arise. Our ability to foster more deeply connecting encounters with each other could be the very thing that steers us towards a world of greater peace and wellbeing. And our ability to foster a more deeply connected state within our self will inevitably re-awaken us to the Truth that we really are ONE life. Self-awareness without connectedness with the whole can be quite unfulfilling. However, self-awareness combined with communion provides the foundation for real hope – it gives us a glimpse of the potential we really have… to live a love-filled life. Perhaps this is why the Buddhist faith espouses the virtues of sangha (living spiritual community) as the highestprinciple for human development. And, whether we are spiritual or not, it is evident that the more connected we are – in our self and with each other – the happier we are. Perhaps then it is time to replace our virtual connections with real life
happy, secure, loved or at peace. This sor t of change is really only temporary, because it is still associated with a conditioned identity that will continue to create problems and suffering in more subtle and creative ways. www.innerself.com.au What I am pointing to here is a greater power, a deeper solution that frees us from the whole conditioned identity. Whether we know it yet or not, this is what we are seeking. What we truly want is freedom from the condition that creates our suffering in the first place. When you use the mind or ego, it is like rearranging furniture in a prison cell in order to make it more comfortable. When you enter awareness – pure consciousness – you leave the prison cell altogether. In fact, you see that there never was a prison to start with! The prison was just a projection of the mind. It is the liberating power of awareness that can offer the greatest help during these times of trauma or unease. Not only can it aid you at a ‘personal’ level to regain a sense of peace and trust in life, but it can be extended to others, enabling a greater solidarity and capacity for us to unite in the aftermath of tragedy. As you awaken more to your own essence, you become a field of peace and love – you shine as this peace and love. You also become a presence of true compassion, capable of extending this deeper awareness into other people’s lives. You become the presence of a deeper vibration that affects the whole at the unseen level, but at a very real level – the level in which we truly are all ONE and in which true peace is known.

RadiantMIND DO YOU LIVE IN THE WORLD OR DOES WITH PETER FENNER, PHD
In Radiant Mind and other courses I offer I prefer to talk about “intimacy” rather than “love.” This gives us a fresh opportunity to invent what we mean by the word “ love.” Rather than saying a lot about “love” and potentially debase with word, the idea of “intimacy” can be approached more openly. I feel that the word intimacy works better than the word compassion, because compassion is often understood in a dualistic and hierarchal way. We can give something to someone, something that they need. Compassion can be expressed by seeing what another needs and working to fulfill that need. Intimacy isn’t like that. Intimacy gives us the opportunity to totally enter a situation openly in whatever shape it takes. It allows us to be aware and completely engaged with others no matter what is happening. When we abide in unconditioned awareness we take care of others in the same way we take care of ourselves because there is no difference between ourselves and others. While we don’t feel people’s pain and suffering, or joy and elation in exactly the same way that they do, we deeply par ticipate in their feelings, because we come together in the field of undivided awareness. Other peoples’ thoughts and feelings aren’t arising with the immediacy and with the clarity with which we experience our own thoughts and feelings. It’s more like a shadowing, more opaque, yet whatever is happening for others is effectively part of our own experience. Even though we don’t know what other people are thinking, and while physical pain is very personal, when we rest in nondual awareness, we somehow sense the general structure of people’s throughts—their confusion, worry or clarity. And we relate to their pain as though it was our own. From within undivided awareness we are just a clearing—a centerless space—through which a universe moves. I am me, not because there is a unique me somewhere in here, but because the space I am reveals a unique and distinctive universe. Even though it seems I’m at the center of this, I’m not in here, and there is no center. This means that everyone who enters into the clearing that I am is as intimately related to me as my thoughts and bodily feelings. There’s no difference. In the nondual state there is no inside or outside. There is no me in here who exists separate from everything else. It’s impossible to locate where I stop and you begin. There is no point where I stop and you begin. There’s just this, which is everything. This is real intimacy. From within the nondual experience we don’t invite into, or exclude, anything. There’s no one home who is capable of doing this! Everything is already here. We don’t push anything away, and we don’t hold onto anything. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the structure of our relationships takes the same form with everyone. The
people with whom we live, work and practice have a central role in our lives. Nonetheless, there is nothing artificial or contrived about our relationships. In the nondual realm, intimacy isn’t a par ticular set of feelings, such as feeling really close or connected to someone, or feeling deeply committed or concerned about someone else’s wellbeing. Nondual intimacy doesn’t carve out a particular relationship with one, or a few other people. Nondual intimacy is all encompassing and all embracing. Nothing is excluded. Everything in our known universe is touched with equal sensitivity and compassion. It’s the experience of total interpenetration of our being to the point where the no one who we are expands to include everything. I invite you to explore the idea of being a “centerless clearing.” I find that it’s an extremely powerful way of being in the world.

THE WORLD LIVE IN YOU?
SKY SHAYNE INNES
In my last article, I asked the question, “What kind of world do you live in?”. Since then, this question has been brought into even sharper focus through a dear friend, Jodie, who left this earthly dimension and crossed to the other side. Over the last six months I have learnt much from this momentous transition we call death. My mother, my grandmother and my aunt have all crossed along with three other people I know and love well. Sitting here quietly, looking out at the garden in its wintery apparel, I think of Jodie (or perhaps it is more I feel her) and marvel at her determination, courage and astonishing vitality in the face of her cancer. It was often easy to forget that she was ill, so filled with enthusiasm was she. But when I looked into her eyes, I also saw the hur t and bewilderment and fear. I saw her looking after other people more that she did herself. We explored the nature of her low self-esteem - such a paltry description of something so subtly destructive; that we get used to and own as our real nature. We talked about what it means to be true to oneself rather than other people’s expectations; or fulfilling those hidden internal demands that we put on ourselves to qualify for love and worth. She was so talented, in particular, with helping people to get a handle on things. She was so accepting of people and their foibles but not of her own; she was extraordinary and so wonderfully ordinary, as we all are. In my last newsletter, I wrote these words: “A wonderful woman, working in cancer care, told me that every one who comes to the centre is asked if they know why they have cancer? I often tell this to those people who still err towards a medical model
of disease, and doubt the role the emotional body plays in the manifestation of disease from dis-ease.” Amongst many appreciative replies, I received one from a friend which reflects a view of the world that many of us grapple with daily, in one way or another. I feel his words are so significant that I have copied a slightly edited version of them here: “I hate this ‘why have I given myself cancer’ thing. Some years ago a friend of mine had a brain tumour and knew he was dying, leaving two young kids and wife. At his fund raiser he gave a talk about how he was finally understanding how he was responsible for his tumour. I found this really distressing. Not only was he having to face leaving his family in a difficult situation he was blaming himself for doing it to them/ himself. Yes, there is a place for visualisations and internal house cleaning but genes are genes. Chemicals in the environment or food kill good people as much as nazis. A woman gets raped just as savagely if she meditates or is an alcoholic. Or both. So I find asking people why they have cancer is like asking Jews why they were gonna be gassed. Particularly in this day and age of understanding the role of genes. Of environmental triggers etc. And yes maybe some part is psychological. This I accept sometimes but not always. To me this kind of thinking relates to our need to feel in control of our lives. And of course we aren’t. The world is not merely a reflection of us and what we think or feel but it actually exists outside of us. So it actually has a real presence. Not just maya. Which is maybe about thoughts
etc but even they are real. So yep. I have charge around that.” First, I want to say that I include his words with deep appreciation for his expression of what so many of us feel in so many ways. Of course, we understand these words with our minds and our emotions. For me, the importance of these words are as they reflect the quintessential debate, the great shift of this time. Do we live in the world or does the world live in us? This is the paradigm shift centred around consciousness and materiality, energy and physicality, little i and big I. This is the question asked by mystic and scientist alike, “what is the true nature of reality?” and, “what kind of world do we live in?” Psychologically, egoically, there is no doubt that we live in the world and we suffer it in ways described above. And there is no doubt, it is very convincing. This is how we have had the human experience for millennia, struggling to survive, often feeling helpless, hopeless or powerless and doing whatever it takes to feel in control, safe and protected. What happens when we actually put down this conviction of material reality? Science has helped to change our cosmology and our world view. According to quantum physics, there is no ultimate physical reality. Everything we know as real arises out of consciousness. So, according to science, the world only exists outside of us as a projection, a hologram. The mystics have said this for aeons. I was taught that DNA is fixed, immutable. Now science teaches that it changes according to what we feel. It talks of the brain that changes itself, and so much more. Nonetheless, most of us are still utterly convinced by genes, cancers and perpetrators as real. How can
we shift this conviction? How can we dream differently? Just for a moment, stop identifying with what you think, feel and believe is going on. Stop giving reality to the current dream. Drop into the silence of your heart. Feel what is really real. Feel the ecstasy. Dream from here. Have your human experience from here. Through your heart’s intelligence, you learn to see beyond dis-ease and other faces of fear. This is where the world lives in you. This is where the inner has a chance of transforming the outer. Through your hear t, your dream aligns with the universal dream, and it is found to be wondrous. Sky is an inspiring spiritual teacher who helps you evolve a cosmology for transformation and growth.

SELFRemembering WITH STEPHEN DENHAM
Threading the Path to Enlightenment in the Age of Information “Content” is very much the buzzword in today’s age of information. It refers to everything from a news bulletin to cancer research; video games downloaded to your mobile phone, laptop or tablet; online dating channels or the latest Scorsese film. The way we take it for granted certainly gives no hint of user-related problems, and the dis-content it may cause the human nervous system. Yes we may know content as enter tainment, education or just information, but it also impacts on the inner realm of human life experience. And in today’s fast-paced, time-poor lifestyle, practices for working on one’s self, both ancient and modern, assume a whole new significance - par ticularly as the effects of information overload and addiction become better known. In fact, some interesting alternatives for tackling these modern day issues emerge when you consult the wisdom of the past, including spiritual traditions some of which go back hundreds of years. Philosophers such as Descartes, Hume and Berkeley all investigated the inner sanctum of human perception, exploring questions of reality and what constitutes true knowledge. When it comes to human nature, traditional philosophical enquiry seeks to answer questions about the nature of existence as it is. For spirituality, on the other hand, the age-old question concerns our human potential, and what we might become. Here perception has the potential to evolve, to become finer and more receptive through disciplines such as meditation, breath awareness and the practice of cultivating stillness. For Armenian mystic George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff (1866-1949), the human being is a processing plant for “food”, of which there are different types – dietary, air and impressions. Our level of consciousness plays a key role in how we assimilate this food we need for our proper functioning. If we fail to rise above what Gurdjieff called the “law of accident”, it really only sustains
the basic physical level of existence. But with the effor ts necessary to remember oneself and awaken, to bring the intellectual, emotional and physical centres into balance; it is possible for men and women to attain higher levels of consciousness and realise their God-like potential. In the Gurdjieffian system, content as we know it today can be viewed as par t of the food of incoming impressions. Depending on the level of one’s inner development, this information can either be received haphazardly and so maintain one’s subservience to the law of accident - or used creatively as the raw material of transformation. It depends on the extent of our “waking sleep” as Gurdjieff called it, or conversely, our capacity for self-remembering. It is primarily a question of being, of who we are. In this age of information, we may think of content as an absolute necessity for the modern lifestyle. Can you imagine not being able to shop, buy or sell, book or search online, or instantly access news, email or social media? It makes no sense at all not to take advantage of quick, easy to access information that enhances our quality of life. The key question is about managing the process. How can we manage content, so that we get the benefit without compromising our mental health in the process? There are cer tainly ways and means available for each of us to put our lives in order, both inside and outside, even in the midst of the proliferation of content that constantly demands and distracts our attention. Feng shui, for example, is an ancient oriental system, which recognises the interplay between the external environment and the inner world of the human senses; it is based on principles designed to maximise the flow of energy or “qi”. Author of Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui Karen Kingston refers to the Balinese culture as an example of an entire society using feng shui to promote happiness and abundance. Perhaps today we need to space-
clear our minds as much as our environment. Much is already known about the negative consequences of clutter in our homes and workplaces - but what about our inner space? We need to find ways to practice feng shui on the inside too, among our thoughts and feelings. And, in relation to the tsunami of information that presses upon us daily, perhaps we need a kind of vir tual feng shui. What we don’t need is more congestion to add to the oversupply. We should take every step possible to ensure we are not swallowed up by information that only perpetuates dis-content – leaving us starved of knowledge that nurtures our soul and sets us on the path to becoming creators in our own right. Even the most brilliant content curation tool cannot answer one big question for us: what information do we really need? Time is life. If we are addicted to content that serves no creative purpose, even the most efficient management strategy becomes a waste of our most precious asset. It is time to consult the wisdom of our forefathers, seek out true knowledge and time-honoured ways of being – and see clearly for ourselves the path that leads to enlightenment for us and future generations.

SPRING TIME - A TIME FOR RENEWAL?
BY JAYNIE MORRIS
As the Sun star ts setting later in the evening and rising to bring its rays of life to our world much earlier each morning, we start to feel a sense of ‘renewal’ and awakening in our lives. For many of us, the coming of Spring signals a time for the cleaning out of the old, and spring cleaning commences on many levels. As a child I have fond memories of my Mother heralding in the Spring with the announcement that the curtains in all the rooms were coming down for a wash…that the windows and the skir ting boards were all getting a good clean… and that it was time for our ritual 1st Sunday in Spring – taking out all of our clothes in the wardrobes and doing a genuine ‘culling’. We would go through everything and anything that hadn’t been worn for a couple of years went into the ‘one more year and you are gone pile’ (yes my Mother was a little bit of a ‘hoarder’ ) and others were put into the bag for the Salvos. We would then put all of the remaining Winter clothes in suitcases to be stored for another year. Then the suitcases with Summer clothes would come out and what a fun time that always was…it was like an early Christmas with gasps of ‘Oh I forgot I had that! I can’t wait to wear it again!’ and ‘Thank goodness I didn’t throw that out... it’s back in fashion’. These days, although my Mother is long gone to a better place, every change of season I still do this ritual and this Spring is no exception. The difference is that this year something has happened in the Winter months, something that has really shifted in my mindset. In talking with many of my friends and clients I’m surprised to discover it is not only me. Many of them have indicated that over the Autumn/Winter period of 2013 world events and local issues have been looked upon by each and every one of them with a more enquiring mind. The direction of our global economy has been playing havoc with all of us. Whilst some governments have chosen to ‘move funds around’ in order to protect the community from the full force of the global financial crisis, others have chosen to face it head on and take the fall now rather than delay the consequences. In discussing these
strategies, most of us have agreed that when there is a serious issue that is faced, the bravest move is to face it ‘head on’. By doing that, we are able to see the consequences, plan for the ‘hit’, investigate options of resolvement and learn from the lessons. And in most cases… come out the other side in much better shape along with increased wisdom and gratitude. Trying to ‘soften the blow’ artificially as some governments have done, by attempting to ‘stimulate’ the economy with cash giveaways and raiding the government savings accounts to ‘cotton wool’ the financial crisis is a short term solution which in the long term, still has to be paid and…invariably, just delays the ‘hit’ that others take straight up. When we have an issue in our lives, be it personally, emotionally, financially or in business, finding ways to ‘delay the inevitable’ and still have the issue is not the answer to strength and peace within. These issues with our various governments have been the topic of discussion and have created an increased awareness of how impor-
tant it is to be grateful for what we have. To be grateful for what we are able to create on every level in our lives, for that is what each and every one of us is…a creator. If we want abundance on any level in our lives, we can have it…we simply have the ability to create it if we truly desire. The opposite can be said as well, it lies simply within us all. This increased awareness and gratitude has permeated many, so as we enter the Spring of 2013, as we ‘cull’ our wardrobes we aren’t putting so much into the suitcases for next year…we are placing the items in bags for the Salvo’s now. As we spring clean our homes and make decisions on what we really do need, we don’t put them in ‘storage’ we pass them on to others. This creates an amazing ‘flow’ in life and as we increase that ‘flow’ our abundance increases. In business, ‘spring cleaning’ is essential. Working through our clients and their needs and whether we continue to be the right fit or whether we need to change strategies, is all part of growing, developing and increasing abundance. We
REMEMBER ‘Everything is Possible’ Have you ever wondered how the intangible becomes tangible or how a miracle occur s? Or at what point does the impossible become possible; whether it be material, physical or spiritual? People are doing the impossible all the time; rising from the depths of despair to great heights of personal success. Others manage to heal themselves, but how does this happen? Something within us must take place or change. A ne w book Remember, ‘Everything is Possible’ written by
Michelle M. Wright explains what does happen within us and how a miracle occurs. She explores and explains concepts such as what a thought is and how it becomes a manifestation.

WITH DR ANDREW POWELL
Creating Wealth is a Process of Shedding… Sounds kinda backwards, right? After all, isn’t creating wealth all about acquiring stuff? More money, more assets, more knowledge, more toys… you get the picture. That’s certainly the story that our consumer-driven society wants us to believe. Basically more stuff equals more success. But is it really true? And what is it doing to us, this constant drive for the next thing, for bigger and better stuff? What it actually does is it keeps us in a constant state of wanting. We are perpetually unsatisfied. In fact there is a multi-billion dollar industry focused on telling us that we are not enough, just to keep us in that constant state of desire. After all, that’s what keeps our economy ticking over- you and I buying stuff that we think we need to improve our lives in some way. Yet on the other hand the “Law Of Attraction” tells us that like attracts like. What that means is we must become a vibrational match for what we want to manifest before it can appear for us. We actually have to become like the things we want in order to attract them. Hence the truism- if you want more love,
be more loving. The more you love others (and of course yourself), the faster more love will show up in your life. If you want more money, be more generous (on all levels… even if you don’t have any money you can give more of your time, your energy etc.) The more you focus on abundance and act as it is already part of your life (because it is), the more quickly abundance will flow to you. Do you see the conflict here? To become more abundant we need to think, feel and act more abundantly, yet how can we ever do this if we are in a constant state of wanting… in other words a constant state of not enough, of lack? Our whole society and economic structure is based around keeping us focused on what we don’t have. This is happening on so many levels- often it’s quite blatant, but it’s also going on at more subtle levels as well. Think about it- let’s say you set a goal to double your income. Sounds like a good thing to do right? But what are you really putting out there? What you are actually saying is that “right now I only have half of what I need”. It seems like you are focused on creating
Health, Wealth & Happiness…. just launched in Singapore & Malaysia! We are expanding! Now available in Singapore & Malaysia and China opening Soon!
more abundance, but your current focus is actually one of lack and not enough! So the paradox is that we will never achieve more wealth (or anything else) by wanting more. It’s impossible- it simply doesn’t work that way. Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t want things… after all, if that was the case you’d never change, never learn, never grow, never stretch the boundaries of your self. So by all means, decide what you want to achieve. Set your intention. Make it big and bold… but then let it go! This is absolutely key, and it’s the par t most people trip up on. The secret is not to chase after the thing you want, but instead to focus on becoming the person who can have more of that thing! To manifest more wealth, think, act and feel more like someone wealthy. It’s actually easy- just focus on the abundance that you already have. Work on gratitude. The more you do, the more you will realise you already have… and the more that will be attracted to you! Just stay in the flow. And so we come back to the point- success is actually a process of shedding, of letting go. Shedding your old beliefs, habits and patterns
of thought- you know the ones I’m talking about. The ones that keep you broke, dissatisfied and unhappy (for instance “life wasn’t meant to be easy” or “you need money to make money”). These are actually the things that keep you stuck in the state of wanting, focused on lack, rather than the state of having, where you experience true abundance. So how do you do that? If it was really that easy we’d all have already done it by now, right? The thing that usually sabotages people is the difference between conscious and unconscious beliefs. Conscious beliefs are the things you are actually aware of- they are like the leaves and branches of a tree. The underlying subconscious beliefs are like the roots. These are what really need to change. After all, how effective is it to try to weed your garden just by focussing on the leaves you can see? You must get to the roots if you want real change to occur! Let me give you an example. You might have the conscious belief “I don’t have the time to create wealth”. Yet the underlying subconscious belief is actually “There’s not enough”. If you had to compete in any way for love and attention as a
child (eg. with your siblings, or with Mum or Dad’s work or other priorities) then it’s extremely likely that you have this unconscious belief operating at some level in your life. No matter how much you focus on trying to find more time for creating wealth (the leaves), nothing will really change until you shed the underlying subconscious belief (the roots). Make sense? So the mor e you chase the “stuff” of creating wealth, the more you affirm your current lack… and the more frustration you are likely to experience. By contrast, the more you focus on shedding your limiting money beliefs, the faster wealth and abundance will be attracted to you.

PsychicREALMS WITH ELISABETH JENSEN
HUNGRY GHOSTS AND HAPPY SPIRITS
During one of a my early teaching visits to Singapore, at a healing centre in the centre of Chinatown, I was wondering what was causing all the noise in the street outside - singing and music including the loud banging of cymbals, then when I went outside there were little bonfires and makeshift altars with food on them everywhere as well. It was “Hungry Ghost Month” in Singapore and the Chinese Opera singers were entertaining the dead, plus feeding them as well. That visit I was focussing on teaching about Angels and Mediumship – well the Angel Classes went very well but the Mediumship Classes were very difficult! So many Spirits everywhere but not related to or known by any of the students… I vowed never to return and teach Mediumship during Hungry Ghost Month again! For traditional Chinese this month is devoted to honouring ancestors and feeding and enter taining the Spirits who have been let out of “Hell” during this time. As a medium it’s quite unsettling for me to feel their presence as even all the singing and dancing and food offerings don’t seem to satisfy the Spirits and if I try to talk with them they seem quite lost. The same unsettled feeling oc-
curs for me at some Psychic Expos and large Mediumship events and of course in hospitals. I feel all the calling in and simply talking to the spirits during Mediumship Readings and Events is not always enough – you need to ensure they progress fur ther and have healing in The Light or Heaven. IS MY LOVED ONE HAPPY IN SPIRIT? This is a common question put to a medium during a reading and mostly people in the Spirit World are delighted to be pain and debt free and experiencing an exciting new life. Sometimes I know the loved one is not so happy so after the reading I advise my client I need to send them off to The Light for Healing. This is a simple enough process for a psychic medium to do by simply asking the Angels, especially Archangel Michael, to guide the person towards The Light, then right into The Light. HOW DO I KNOW IF MY LOVED ONE IS UNHAPPY? Yes, it’s good to learn the signs you have an unhappy Spirit with you. Not much point just entertaining them really – it’s better to find out the cause of the problem then release them to The Light – knowing they
CAN STILL RETURN but after the healing time they will feel so happy. If you feel a presence with you then a feeling of sadness and confusion comes over you – that’s a Lost Soul! They don’t know they are physically dead and are trying to talk with you usually and frustrated you can’t see or communicate with them. If you feel a presence then an unexpected pain or ongoing sadness and even later experience depression and low energy levels, again it could be a Lost or Confused Soul with you. Again the solution is simple – you need to ask the Angels to take them to The Light or get an experienced Psychic Healer to assist you there.
The Light for a short while for some healing and rest. They then return to be with their loved ones till their full transition into the Light where they stay for about a month or often much longer before being ready to return as Happy Spirits i.e. aware their physical body is dead but are emotionally healed and very peaceful about being in the Spirit World. If these processes don’t occur then you mind find your house feels haunted – either by your loved ones who never could leave you long enough for their own healing or by somebody who died there or once lived there long ago. The solution is the same - to release them to the Light but first it’s usually necessary
to find out why they are still there and talk to them for a while. There are much darker spirits of course and you may feel very fearful and panicky in their presence or really strange events star t to happen. You need somebody more experienced to deal with them in this case as they need much more help than simply being shown the way to The Light. HAPPY SPIRITS Helpful and healed they can guide and watch over us. I have LOTS of Happy Spirits with me and they entertain and inspire me constantly – much lower maintenance than most of my earthly friends!
So do take the time to consider that often our emotions are influenced by the Spirit World so please do ensure those around you are all Happy Spirits. ELISABETH JENSEN is a psychic medium and was Voted Australian Psychic of The Year 2010. She is also Vice President of The Australian Psychics Association and trains many professional psychics and healers in Australia and Asia.

MY HOUSE FEELS HAUNTED! It probably is then! Strange happenings like doorbells ringing when nobody is there, lights going on and off by themselves and things being lost then found again all indicate spirits trying to get your attention. For about a week or two after death most spirits stay around their loved ones – at least till after their own funeral. At the moment of death, all going well, as the Soul is released from the body they should go to

Discover your Psychic in VIC Dr Jason Betts
I have been psychic since my deathaccident in 1998 when I saw my body on the operating table. When I awoke I had full-on visions with my eyes open of future events. Reiki is my major method of connecting and healing, of focussing my attention and carrying intentions. My speciality is using the para-electrical properties of Reiki to connect with the nervous system of people, allowing me to experience their mind-pictures and sense their body as they do - plus, of course - their future. The Australian Psychics Association awarded me 2008 Australian Psychic of the Year and my state award in 2010. A year later I became the national manager for Australia’s busiest psychic line, thecircle.com, and I am totally loving it. I get to work with our country’s best phone psychics, swapping tips and talents, sharing gifts and wisdom with those that really need our help. It’s just great. Between Reiki classes (I’ve been healing since 1991 and teaching since 1997) and managing thecircle.com I organise the Tasmanian Psychic Expos. Better than ever, they are still growing as we give six shows per year around the state, every year, since 1995. We are very well known and trusted and are the only new-age event in Tasmania.

I’m very fortunate to be able to communicate with people’s loved ones who have passed over. What makes me different from many other mediums is that I also have the gift of connection to animals – passed over or living.

The satisfaction of reuniting an owner with their beloved pet or

As a platfor m psychic medium, I do readings, stage shows, c hur c hes, fairs, parties, radio, charity events & Psychic TV. I am an author, of my self- published book “My Passion, My Life (A Woman / Medium’s Journey.)” I run development classes, beginners and advanced. Personal losses have given me greater understanding with people who are grieving. Connections give me immense joy to bring validation and survival evidence. I work with integrity and precision, making people happy, feeling better as they leave, then when they arrived. Bringing a man through one hour after he passed, gave me comfort to know that our loved ones are instantly safe on the other side, after passing from this world. I have brought through people who have been murdered or committed murders, suicides, miscarriages, terminations, animals including dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses and snakes. My aim is to be the best medium that I can possibly be and to reach as many people as I can and to go to absolute heights in my chosen profession. To date I have read over 7000 people and have huge waiting lists. My greatest asset is, I never get tired or run out of energy when doing readings.

MOON CALENDAR AUGUST
1 MC Be prepared to keep your options open. 2 3 MD Hunches and intuition have a role to play. 4 5 6 ME Enjoy the attention but do not be seduced by it. 7 ] New Moon E The New Moon brings increased energy and also restlessness. A good time to take the initiative and act on matters which have been left either unfinished or unresolved. For some there may be a need to be proactive and get things moving as inertia can be the biggest hurdle. 8 MF Take the time to get the details right. 9 10 MG Be prepared to back your judgment even if it is not popular. 11 12 13 MH Emotions run deep and may catch some by surprise. 14 ‡ 1st Quarter Moon H Do not act simply on emotion as hasty action or pre-empting others may result in difficulties as there is much at stake. Be prepared to take things one step at a time and much more will be achieved. 15 MI A need to look beyond the immediate and broaden horizons. 16 17 MJ Take responsibility for what arises as this builds credibility. 18 19 MK An objective and impartial view may lead to unexpected insights. 20 21 … Full Moon K M enters L The Full Moon provides both a realisation as well as a revelation of the matter at hand. The consequences of past actions must be dealt with and processes and structures put in place for the future. For some, this may mean having to take on added responsibility. As the Moon changes sign, take the opportunity to examine emotions which come to the forefront at this time. 22 23 M A Sun enters F There is great energy for the initiation of new projects. Diligent, Precise and Organised are characteristics of Virgo. 24 25 M B A practical approach will ensure that things are achieved systematically. 26 27 28 M C ƒ 3rd Quarter Moon C Be prepared to find the information you require in order to continue and complete what has been started. Take the time to ensure that all is present and correct. Where possible, tie up as many loose ends but do not do so at the expense of spontaneity or flexibility. 29 30 M D There is a need to nurture and protect what you have created. 31
1 2 ME Relish the attention when it is earned. 3 4 M F Refrain from being critical if you cannot offer alternatives. 5 ] New Moon F The New Moon this month brings opportunities to those that can be organised and focused on due process. There may be a temptation to be critical of others’ efforts but instead put the energy into ensuring that plans have the best chance of realisation. 6 7 MG Cooperation and conciliation are called for but not at the expense of individuality. 8 9 MH Intense emotions may cause overreactions. 10 11 MI Enthusiasm and inspiration will help spur things along. 12 13 ‡ 1st Quarter Moon I M enters J Keeping your options open will increase chances of success but do not confuse flexibility with procrastination.

LUNAR PHASES AND PERSONALITY TYPES Lunar phases occur as a result of the relationship between the Sun and the Moon. This cyclic relationship produces the lunar cycle and everyone is born at a particular point in this cycle. A birth can be labelled as a “first quarter” “full moon” or “balsamic”. The lunar phase a person is born in refers to the relationship between the person’s Sun (the sense of self) with their Moon (their emotional expression and security). Therefore, the lunar phase that a person is born in can reflect how that person deals with life the nature of the energy and their attitude to life and how they deal with it. The lunation cycle is a visible symbol of our place in the larger cycle of life. Without a calendar, we cannot accurately pinpoint our day of birth, however, we can easily discern our “Moon”
birthday simply by looking at the phase of the Moon. Every month, each and every one of us resonates to that aspect of the Sun-Moon relationship that is imprinted in our psyches. This describes the basic capacity of the person to relate to life generally. In order to find the lunation phase you are born under, you can consult an almanac for the year and find out what the Moon phase nearest to when you were born. Dane Rudhyar, a famous astrologer developed the theory of phases and used it to develop the eight lunation types of personality which we will be discussed in a series of short articles over the coming issues. A NEW MOON occurs when the Moon is less than 45 degrees ahead of the Sun. For a period of three and
a half days every month, there is a New Moon and all births during this period will have a New Moon in their chart.

Hello my name is Sue Bunnett and I have my own healing practice, Isis Blessings in Crystal Brook, gateway to the Flinders Ranges in the Mid North of South Australia. I am an Isis Mystery School Certified Practitioner and Authorised Teacher, Intuitive healer, and Remedial Massage Therapist. Having had a life-long passion and fascination with Egypt that goes back to my early childhood,I first experienced this magical and mystical country in 2007 when I accompanied Elisabeth Jensen, Principal
of Isis Mystery School, in Adelaide South Australia, on my first trip to Egypt. If I was asked to choose my best experience I would find it extremely difficult because there were so many. From the bustling and vibrant Khanel-Khalili markets to the stillness at the break of dawn, standing in the semi darkness amid the paws of the majestic Sphinx, watching the sun rise in the sky and its rays cascade down over the Great Pyramid. Or the tranquil waters of the Nile with its picturesque lush green
banks or wandering the dusty tracks amongst the many tombs in the Valley of the Kings, it’s hard to choose. Being immersed in the history and culture of this incredible country of the great pharaohs and visiting the monumental Temples, another. Imagine for a moment walking in the footsteps of the priests and priestesses, entering into the Temple of the Goddess Isis on the Island of Philae and walking into the place of daily worship; the Holy of Holies, to quietly go within and contemplate what has gone before. Whatever your belief, the energy you feel in Egypt changes you, so
much that I have been back a total of three times. Isis Blessings in conjunction with Abba Travel are excited to bring you a wonderful, enriching opportunity to experience Egypt for yourself. Visit www.isisblessings.com for details

Tarot, Psychometr y, Mediumship & Holistic Counselling are tools I use to assist people on their life jour ney. Spiritual and meaningful messages from those in the Spirit Realm open people’s awareness to make informed choices about their life; receive confirmation of their thoughts & feelings and to find peace. Many unusual psychic experiences during my lifetime eventually led me to look into my ancestry. Mediumship is a great way to connect to those in the Spirit Realm who have passed. Messages from loved ones in Spirit can ease people’s grief and give hope of the continuance of life after death. “I received a flower reading and a tarot card reading from Kim and I found it to be a lovely experience. Kim was very calm and respectful. She knew personal experiences about me and was very accurate. I am looking forward to my next reading with Kim and another enlightening experience.” – Becky

WITH AMANDA DE WARREN
HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED A RESCUE PET INSTEAD? Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of connecting to many wonderful rescue pets that through no fault of their own end up homeless and in need of love and care. Most of the amazing rescue pets just want to put the past behind them and get on with their new lives. It is such a pleasure to make a connection to these beautiful creatures, some of which have had a really bad beginning. I know that having a rescue pet is just so rewarding as I have one of my own. He had a bad start and I can tell you now
that because I travel a lot, I was not intending to get another dog. I’m so glad he’s come into my life, and my other dog Kelli and he just love each other. He has done so well and come a long way from his sad beginnings. Other pets generally adjust quickly to the new pet and many of them seem to already know that this new kid on the block has not had a good start. Other pets are always at the ready to guide this new one – however old and whatever they’ve been through – to the ways of the household and the behaviour ex-
pected of them. I’ve seen pets that have been rehoused go from being a nervous wreck to a well-balanced member of the family and quickly adjusting to their new life. There are some wonderful rescue groups that have had some of these pets for a while and have already started the recovery process. Generally when you get a rescue dog, they have already had vet treatment and been de-sexed and the volunteers that have looked after them know them very well, so they are generally on their way to closure on their past. As much as I love puppies I think I would still always go for the rescue dog, as over the years I’ve had the pleasure of connecting to many of these awesome pets, including cats, dogs and horses. It’s not for everyone but it’s something to consider and it makes you feel good inside to know you have now helped one of our four legged friends to have a ‘forever home’.

How do I have a great relationship with my pet?
Whether it’s a rescue animal or one you’ve had since babyhood, this is a question asked by so many pet owners. For so long we underestimated the intelligence of our much loved pets but now we’ve realised they are probably more intelligent than we are. Animals go by energy more than verbal, as they always have done, and this has evolved over a very long time. If we are feeling sad or upset, we don’t even need to say anything to our pets as they just know we’re not feeling our best and are always the first to give us an unconditional cuddle to make us feel better. Our pets always need to see us as the leader and if they don’t, then that’s when the problems can start as they may want to try and become that leader. If this is the case, you need to change your energy and the whole household needs to be on the same page. We need to show them love and affection and leadership qualities for them to respect us and this makes them happy with their relationship with us. I have two very large dogs that are very different from each other, but I treat them the same and show them the same respect. You often see cats that are the leader of the household when it comes to the pack. In fact I know of one cat that lives with seven dogs of all different shapes and sizes and she is definitely the leader. This leadership energy needs to be consistent and shown with love and
awakening one community at a time . . . affection from us to them. I often suggest that you go and sit with your pet with no distractions and a clear mind and see what they have to say. I think you’ll be surprised at what comes through to you as they are always happy to have a chat. We need to remember that every pet is different with its own special personality – just like us – and what works for one pet may not work for the other. Horses are another animal that are very sensitive to energy. I’ve had many years of communicating with one Olympic champion, and if the energy of the rider is not what he likes, he’ll just play up constantly. He just knows when there is an inexperienced rider on him. Leadership is so impor tant for them as they need to see us as their leader, but in a loving way. As a professional medium & animal communicator, about 95% of my clients are female. With this issue’s theme being ‘Women Making a Difference’, it’s timely to talk about the power of women’s intuition. Many of my female clients have found that turning to their intuition and spiritualism for guidance has given them peace with their inner self. I’ve helped facilitate this by connecting them to their passed over loved ones or pets (dead or living). The results have been so rewarding, with many women’s lives really starting to fall into place. Men see this and think, ‘I want what she’s got’. Well, why wait?

TOOLS FOR HEALTHY LIVING
WITH ROBERT REEVES
Naturopath, Herbalist, Nutritionist
How Judgements Affect Your Health Your sensitive body is receptive to the many thoughts and feelings that you have. As you hold onto lower, negative energies your health begins to shift. The more negativity you accumulate the more difficult it becomes for your body to function. Judgements are a low vibration and serve you no good. Most of us would never call ourselves judgemental people. Yet, there may be hidden traps that you fall into. Judgements come in all shapes and sizes and whether or not you voice them the low energy is still present. Judgements come from the ego. They try to separate us from other people. They can make you think you are better, or worse than another. This can be in terms of success, wealth, physical appearance, dress sense, intellect, spirituality, and the list goes on. When you listen to judgements (from your own mind, or the words of friends) you are listen-
ing to the ego. The ego brings with it pain, tension, confusion, negativity, and eventual ill health. In spiritual truth we are all Divinely perfect. We have a fully functioning, healthy body with a bright, beautiful soul. The ego tries to make us think otherwise. You forget about your inner spirit and connect with pain, and dis-ease. Yes, of course there are health concerns that we cannot ignore. But you have the choice to view them as a weakness, or find the strength to conquer them. Holding on to judgements only anchors your energy to ill health. Choose to let go of this right now and replace judgemental thoughts with opportunities for growth. Choose to voice every word with the energy of love. Come from a hear t centred place that brings you, and others, joy and upliftment. Practise taking a moment to think before you speak. This sounds like common sense but no doubt you
have let things out that you’ve later regretted. Think carefully about the sentence you are about to say and ask yourself, “Is this the highest energy way to say this?” For example, you might find yourself waiting in a queue. You could say, “Today I was stuck in this line forever, AND the woman in front of me was so silly she didn’t even know what she wanted!” Alternatively you can add a sprinkling of love and make this statement far more beneficial to say and hear, “Today I had the chance to stop for a moment while waiting in line. It was so good to rest and plan ahead for my other activities. The shop assistant was wonderfully patient as the lady in front of me needed some help.” Read both of the above statements back to yourself. Notice how you feel and the subtle changes that occur in your body with each one. This is happening on a constant basis but you haven’t been aware of it until now. Sur round your self with like-
minded individuals that also choose high energy words. Like osmosis you absorb the energy of the words you hear. Make sure your friends and family use loving words. You will inspire others to choose peaceful, non-judgemental words too. They’ll see your vitality and the glow your aura beams with. Snapdragons are excellent flowers to clear judgements from your vocabulary. Bring fresh snapdragons into the home, or plant them in your garden. You can take a single flower and gently press the sides. The flower will open like a dragon’s mouth. Write down any judgements, negative thoughts, or anger that you’ve experienced on a tiny piece of paper. Fold it up nice and small and pop it inside the dragon’s mouth. Take it out into the garden, take a deep breath in and as you exhale toss the flower away. As you let the flower go you also release all negative words. Alternatively print off a picture of snapdragons and write your thoughts on the back. Scrunch the page up, tear it to shreds, or burn it to release the low vibrations. Korean Ginseng is a herb that uplifts your thoughts. It brings you energy, vitality, and motivation. It urges you forward so there’s no opportunity to stop and judge. Take six drops three times a day of the liquid extract and watch your thoughts change. SAMe is a potent supplement that’s like a light switch. It shines light within your mind to clear away negativity and dar kness. Take 400mcg once or twice a day to reset your thinking. Call on Archangel Jophiel to bring beauty to your thoughts. She will help you communicate with love and compassion, deleting judgemental words from your mind. By cleaning up the thoughts you have, the words you speak, and the people you surround yourself with, your health and soul will thank you. Enjoy taking your vibration to the next level by viewing the world and its inhabitants with love. All of the preceding information is meant as a guide only and is not meant to replace proper medical care. Please speak with your health care professional before under taking any of the above mentioned advice. Follow your guidance and get proper assistance too.

ance between their points becomes greater and their argument becomes more polarised. It could be said that their points of view have obviously become very different; like black and white with no grey area. I gave this example to illustrate the effect that stronger energy can have on us. Things become more obvious; like black and white. These incoming energies have the ability to polarise people with different beliefs into opposing forces. The polarities of these opposing forces are either positive or negative, however; both of the opposing sides usually believe that they are the positive ones and therefore they are right and the other is wrong. There is something else going on in the world during this time. This energy shift that is taking place brings with it a period of chaos. Why? When there is a transition from one structure to another; there is a period when neither has the major influence or control. This period is without structure and it is therefore chaotic. The transition can take a shor t time or a long time depending on what influences the change. This is a natural phenomenon of how energy works.

www.innerself.com.au What does this mean to the human race? It has been predicted or prophesized by many people that we are highly likely to be going through such a change at this time. The old paradigm of fear based control, hatred and violence is predicted to be replaced with a more loving, harmonious and tolerant paradigm. Life on earth may get a lot harder for the bulk of the human race as we pass through the change. First; we can expect the polarisation of the positive and negative energies to get stronger. The fear based controllers of the world will try to hang onto their control as the inevitable change into a higher and more positive reality runs its course. We can expect life to get increasingly more difficult for those living in the old fear based paradigm and we can expect them to react with blame and anger as they fight for their survival. Second; the positive effect of this polarisation is that we will not be able to deny any negative belief systems that we may have; even if they are hidden in our subconscious. They will come to the surface for us to heal. These inflowing stronger energies will have not only effect humans, they will affect all life which includes the environment, climate and weather patterns. It is a time of change on a big scale. We can also expect it to be a very rewarding time for those expressing positive energies because the polarisation will be making these energies stronger as well. What a wonderful opportunity for us to spiritually evolve because it will be much easier for us to see how positive or negative all our thought patterns are. The duration of this change is not certain however; there is a reasonable amount of information that suggests that it will finish at the end of 2016 which will make it a four year cycle.

The Risk of Being a Rescuer
BY RACHELLE TERRY
“You are the most selfish woman I have ever met!” He slammed the door. “Woohoo!” Kaye metaphorically high-fived herself. She was finally setting boundaries within a relationship, which had led to a dire deficiency in her physical, financial and emotional resources. What a breakthrough for a woman who had always been the rescuer. A woman who felt guilty if she wasn’t there as a safety net to save her partner from his self-inflicted problems. To no longer allow herself to be manipulated through guilt or made to feel unworthy if she said no. Kay’s situation is by no means unusual. The world is full of rescuer/ victim contracts. You may have a contract yourself. And it shows. In your health, your life and the people you attract. I have observed the following in the energy field of rescuers. You may relate to some of these feelings. 1. A tightness and constriction in the back of the neck and shoulders. This is due to a heavy, dark energy in the upper body and a feeling of burden. 2. Lower back and/or knee problems. This is the result of feeling unsupported, where the energy falls away from the lower body. 3. Fatigue. Most commonly, I see a physical manifestation of fatigue in the chronic rescuer. It is a product of the energy body shouting “ENOUGH!”. While it may not be a conscious feeling (as it is usually suppressed) anger and resentment often accompany the habit of self-sacrifice and these negative emotions are inevitably stored in the meridians, particularly the gall bladder and liver meridians. This creates a “blah”, toxic feeling within the body. How did you become trapped in this rescuer mode? 1. Did you know the difference between being loved and being needed? One client had an energetic cord which connected her heart (love/relationships centre) to her solar plexus (Identity centre). When I asked her this question, she be-

came tearful. Her relationships had always been based on being needed and always left her feeling empty. 2. Do you feel that the person will not survive without your help? Are you sure this is true? My best friend finally left an abusive relationship when I moved overseas because, he said, “you were no longer there as a shoulder to cry on”. Are we being a rescuer or accomplice to negative behaviour? 3. Do you think you have no choice? If so, what are your prison walls made out of ? Guilt? Fear? Obligation? 4. Are you waiting to be rescued? I hope you have a good book to read. You could be waiting a while. You will know when you are empowered and fulfilling your true purpose or “dharma”, when the energy in the solar plexus and between the heart and throat is activated (some people even feel the subtle sense of being propelled forward). You will feel energized from and passionate about what you are doing. Your energy body appears golden, glowing, radiant and could light up a room (or at least, the energy realm!). You are on this planet to be of service NOT a servant. You are the best help to others when you are the strongest version of yourself.

Everyone knows that self-love is vital to building self-esteem and self-confidence, for setting healthy boundaries and feeling good about yourself. Problem is, if you don’t feel good about yourself to start with, if you don’t like yourself much and you’re feeling pretty depressed and miserable, then trying to love yourself is like holding onto a helium-filled birthday balloon and expecting it can fly you to Mars. Mission Impossible! So what do you do when your sense of self is hanging by a thread, but you just can’t make that mental leap from loathing to loving? When loving yourself and feeling good about yourself seems impossible, then what you need to do is parent yourself. That’s where you do the things you know you need to do, even when you don’t want to, can’t be bothered, or feel that you don’t deserve to treat yourself well. Good parents create environments where we can grow, be safe, and learn to get to know ourselves and the world around us. They support us, love us and guide us until we move to a place of maturity where we can do these things for ourselves. Even when you find it hard to love yourself, there is a wise part of your soul that intuitively knows what you need to get back to a place of balance. Your job is to let that parent part of you - the Wise Soul - make the choices for the part of you that is struggling to get on your feet and feel good again. Here are five simple things you can do to make a start towards healing your relationship with yourself: 1. Decide to accept yourself right now, as you are and where you are in life. Too often we tell ourselves that we’ll like ourselves better when we’ve lost weight, found a job, left a bad relationship, found a good relationship, stopped smoking, gotten fit, or won lotto. When we put conditions on loving ourselves, self acceptance will always be that mysterious justaround-the-corner place that is forever up ahead and out of our reach. Be honest with yourself. If life is painful, admit that. Don’t numb yourself with alcohol, drugs, food or overwork. Reach out for help if you’re having trouble coping, or need some new skills and strategies to make tomorrow look different to today. 2. Create a safe space. Everyone needs a place to call home, where they can relax, be themselves, and surround themselves with things that reflect their sense of self. Music, plants, posters or paintings, colours and fragrances - all of these things can help ground you and give you a sense of belonging and security. It’s not about the objects as much as the energy they create. Start by making sure your space is clean. Dirt, mess and clutter drain you and create stagnant energy. Clear the clutter, and then begin to make your space somewhere that is inviting, uplifting and positive. 3. Practice respect. Respect yourself enough to avoid, minimise your exposure to or end toxic relationships and to stop toxic behavours. Respect your body by eating well, and by exercising daily - even when it’s hard. Especially when it’s hard and you don’t want to. That’s what parents do. They make sure we drink enough water, eat our greens, get enough sleep, and get out of bed in the morning. In everything that you do, ask yourself “Does this action or choice honour me?” When we suffer from a lack of self-love it’s easy to make choices that don’t do the best by us. In some cases we even choose things that sabotage our well-being. Once again, if you’re really struggling here, ask for help, whether it’s a counsellor, personal trainer, rehab facility or a good friend who has your back. 4. Find something to look forward to and work towards it, or include it in your life. Whether it’s an overseas holiday, salsa dancing lessons, art classes or writing a bestseller, everyone needs to have a sense of purpose, and that purpose doesn’t have to be career related. Don’t be afraid to dream big, even if you have to start small. 5. Spend some time in nature each day. Fresh air and sunshine has been used as a remedy for depression and to heal all manner of ills for centuries. Watching animals in nature has been proven to lower blood pressure, increase endorphins and relax tension in our muscles. Having contact with pets also helps us heal and feel better about ourselves, and teaches us responsibility for others. Don’t give up. Be the parent you need for yourself. There is strength and wisdom within you. Trust! Love and Light, Nicole ♥ xx Nicole Cody is a channel, metaphysical teacher and Soul Guide.

Eye on the Sky WITH CLAIRE HENNEKAM
August-October 2013 This quarter starts a couple of days after an “almost” formation, being a grand sextile - or “Star of David” formation -that didn’t quite align on 30th July. The energy of this close call can still be quite powerful, but might literally carry with it the feeling of something not quite being fulfilled. Of course, for those who have planets in their birth chart that can fill in the blanks, this time could be quite intense and potentially very powerful – literally, the stars aligning for them. Anyone with meaningful planet placements both in early Scorpio (eg 6-8 degrees) and early Capricorn (eg. 5-7 degrees) would win the celestial lottery going into this quarter. But everyone’s a winner in August in particular, with several patterns forming in the sky, albeit not on the scale of a grand sextile. Half of that formation is the grand water trine, which continues into the first half of August, keeping tempers somewhat muted, although with emotions running higher than usual. That dissolves as Jupiter marches on - it’s a big couple of months for our solar system’s biggest planet, which usually bodes well for lots of oppor tunities for those willing to navigate the potential pitfalls.
Jupiter – the celestial linchpin
After being a key element of the grand water trine, Jupiter takes a few gravitational steps before anchoring in a grand cardinal square in the last week of August with Uranus, Pluto and Venus. There is potentially a lot of power in this sort of alignment, which in this case is connected to leadership and drive, but the square is traditionally a challenging aspect, which can put stress on all of the plants in the formation. In the meantime, Jupiter also forms a more harmonious trine with healing Chiron, meaning that, although the square might throw out some issues to be resolved, the support will be there to do exactly that, hopefully clearing the way for you to continue on with some big plans.
Uranus – agent of change
Another key player this quar ter is Uranus. Another corner of the grand square, Uranus also makes its fourth exact alignment with Pluto just as we head into November. They remain technically squared right through the year (and beyond), however, and the potency of that square is amplified by their placement within the grand square with Jupiter and Venus in late August. That said, Venus and Jupiter are easily the most benevolent planets in the mix, so there is potential for them to behave a little differently in this formation and provide some balance to the somewhat fiery mix of the two transpersonal giants (in
power, if not in size) that are likely to be responsible for more unrest and upheaval globally and possibly also personally. By September 21st, Pluto goes direct, however, after months of being in retrograde motion, meaning that any conflict stirred up by its square with Uranus is likely to result in progress, whereas their last clash seemed to have us going over old ground (further unrest in Egypt as an example).
Dates to watch this quarter
8th August – As Jupiter opposes Pluto, it may manifest in one of several ways. You might feel that your plans are being hampered or put under tight scrutiny, or that you’re trying especially hard to get your own way (one may of course precede the other). Practicing restraint, inner reflection and honesty (most especially with yourself) is the most effective way of navigating through this potentially powerful transit. 21st August – This is a complex day in the sky, with Jupiter both squaring Uranus and trining Chiron, amongst other things. You may find yourself feeling frustrated, wanting to rebel against restrictions, both real and perceived (possibly based on the past), but this is also giving you the opportunity to heal the very issues that may be keeping you prisoner in your heart or mind. Take oppor tunities to throw off those self-imposed shackles and use any rebellious energy to propel yourself forward. 14th September – On a day when romantic Venus forms a harmonious trine with idealistic Neptune, remember the value of kindness and the power of even the smallest gesture of love. 21st September – As Pluto goes direct after a few months in retrograde motion, expect more revelations, particularly in the areas of big business and politics, as well as within whatever those archetypes represent within your own life. 21st October – Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio, which could leave to you saying what needs to be said, whether it is welcome or not. It’s a good time for reflection and contemplation, but the usual drill applies - give yourself plenty of space around appointments and be patient with potentially ‘glitchy’ electronics.

Walking With Spirit by Joy Brisbane
This is a book that is gathering momentum. Walking with Spirit has been selected by its publisher, iUniverse, to be taken to the Frankfurt Book Festival later this year. It has also been selected by a partner of iUniverse, Berrett-Koehler, to be placed on a listing of 500 other publishers with rights to be published in other languages. In Walking with Spirit, Joy draws on her experiences as a psychic medium, counsellor, trained nurse and energy healer to share ways in which we can step out of our negative thoughts and feelings and reclaim happiness in our lives. Walking with Spirit is not a text book but rather it is an easy read, written simply, small in size and yet packed full of helpful guidelines for people to use in their day to day lives. To quote one reader, Steven, “Very inspirational, there were a few bits that also made me cry so, like a great song, it stirred up the emotions. It has inspired me to keep asking those deeper questions and to practice more living in spirit rather than just reading about it. I think you are not only walking in spirit but living in spirit”. The message communicated in Walking with Spirit seeks to touch the lives of others and help them to find joy and peace. It asks you to open your mind and heart to the possibility of healing yourself. Joy writes, “When we step into our divine heritage of living a joyful life – when we find the courage and strength to be who we truly are – then we enter into the experience of discovering inner freedom. We find our divine essence.” Author of When Do The Tears Stop? Joy facilitates workshops in psychic ability, dream interpretation, past life regression and moving through grief. However, it is through her books Joy believes she can reach out and touch the lives of many, helping them to move through depression, grief and disillusions to step back into a healthy and happy life. Joy has recently completed writing her third book, As It Is In Heaven, and will be seeking publication of that book before the end of 2013. Copies of Walking with Spirit can be obtained through www.iUniverse.com or through Joy’s own website www.joybrisbane.com

Claudio Silvano comments on his Destiny of Fire trilogy.
Destiny of Fire is much more than just another fantasy trilogy. It is actually a journey into the mythical and spiritual dimensions of the human spirit, of the soul. By writing this trilogy I have set out to explore what it is that we humans truly are. Despite thousands of years of growth, development and more recently, unprecedented achievements in the realms of science and technology, we still find ourselves where we have always been: at the beginning, unable to answer the most simple and fundamental questions about our existence. Who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning of this life? Is there more to this than meets the eye? In the beautiful land of Theregon things are not as they seem, for deep beneath a calm and peaceful exterior, the cogs of fate rumble perilously towards disaster. Seven Chosen are summoned to Kuon, to help unravel the dark mysteries that plague the city and to embark on a race against time to save the entire land from falling into a second Devastation. These seven Chosen, unremarkable men and women who seem to share nothing in common, having been summoned by power, magic and prophecy, embark on a journey they hope will deliver their world from darkness. Meet Illiom, one of the Chosen and the heroine of this tale, who lives alone in self-imposed exile in the beautiful but unforgiving Sevrock Mountains. It is her fourth year of solitude, but now finally the world is about to draw her out and away from her sanctuary. Someone is coming to bring her back into the world that she has shunned and to face, willing or not, her deepest fear: her own dormant power. Meet Tarmel, Rider of Queen Eranel’s elite Black Ward and the one tasked to bring Illiom back to Kuon. Loyal, dedicated and skilled in the art of death, he finds himself challenged and out of his depth with Illiom. How will he deal with this young woman who brims with mystery and potential for power and yet seems hopelessly lost in her fear-filled inner world. All reviews from amazon.com:

Martin Quinlan • A mix of fantasy, metaphysics, a high stakes thriller, and with rich characters placed in an imagined world of rare colour and beauty. Phil Auckland • Finally a fantasy that has more depth to it than simply a rocking good story. Martial Depczynski • Highly recommend reading this if you enjoy having a story impacting long after you have put it down.

Frequencies do affect our DNA!
BY ANTHONY CRAIG
There is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes. (Michael Forrester, 2012) Researchers are finding that not only is DNA responsible for the building blocks of our being but is also used as data storage and communication. The 97% of our human DNA that was referred to as junk is now being seen as having a higher purpose and the millions of gene switches found within to have importance in controlling what a cell becomes, e.g. skin, liver, brain etc., and also how they behave. As we begin to reconnect back to the higher dimensional frequencies currently available to us through new forms of healing and new levels of understanding we are seeing healings, consciousness shifts and awakening previously unheard of. Through the use of light, sound and vibration our DNA, including genetic defects, is being repaired. Our DNA is being freed from the old patterns as we move forward into the multidimensional and interdimensional aspects of ourselves. We are reconnecting back to whom and what we are. The major medical and scientific breakthrough of approximately 4 million gene switches within our junk DNA that control complex diseases has enormous implications for our future health and consciousness. Western science has been applying a cut and paste process to their research but other European research, especially in Russia, takes a holistic approach to affecting cellular metabolism through light, sound and vibration with very positive results. Working with the vibrational aspects of light and sound they have shown that DNA can be modified and/or repaired. Scientists, including Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues, have been able to modulate frequency patterns influencing the DNA frequency and genetic information. Russian linguists have also determined that DNA follows principles of all languages, through syntax, semantics and basic rules of grammar. The alkalines within our
DNA follow a regular grammar. Since DNA structure and language follow the same rules no DNA recoding is necessary and this begins to explain why the use of language in affirmations, intentions, hypnosis and the like have such a profound effect on us, both mentally and physically. These discoveries also lead us to the importance of sound and light frequencies and vibrations on the origin of human life, the possibility that we were created by waves of consciousness and that, at a fundamental level, man is pure energy. In the science of Wave Genetics, the junk DNA operates on a rich infrastructure level of super codes and wave communication, apparent in material form as crystalline structures, suggesting that the human gene is part of a multiverse or larger holograms of wave information allowing for hyper-communication, previously described as psychic forms of communication. “The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch” by Dr J. J. Hur tak (1973) also brings forth these concepts and the effect of sound and vibration on the chemical and mathematical coding of our DNA allowing healing to take place in previously unrecognised ways. The links between science and spiritually that seemed to have been lost particularly in the middle ages and the separation of the sacred and secular through the rise of hegemonic male dominated churches are now coming together again through collaborations between the different branches of science, archaeology, anthropology and music. Consequently scientific research is beginning to suppor t and underlie concepts previously advocated through the core unadulterated aspects of ancient traditions, spirituality and religion. Key 3:17 in ‘The Keys Of Enoch’ discusses how information coming through axiatonal lines can effect healing and consciousness shifts on all levels allowing us to come back to our multidimensional perfect image. Through this arrangement ‘both acoustical vibrations of spiritual Light and sustaining Love are conveyed to the human system….’ And ‘axiatonal lines are connected with a whole series of universal
fossil records and described as ‘punctuated equilibrium’ by biologists. We know that we are now in a cycle of planetary movements and positions that occurs only occasionally. It is then we see great advances in new levels and forms of healing, consciousness and awakening. At this time we must take the opportunities to embrace new healing that works on all levels and that moves beyond just energy healing

Group energy is a huge advantage when one decides to grow. The shared journey brings many aspects of the consciousness to all
who partake. It also creates bonds and the group that last as long as the energy is needed. Many are felt, only those that are beneficial will remain. What can it do for me? Increase awareness, meditation will increase awareness in a group it not only increases our awareness but we have the benefit of learning from others. The group energy is also linked directly to the consciousness grids and make the knowledge and awareness available on a planetary basis. Add into the mix one of the purest most potent portals in the Southern Hemisphere and an inflowing stream of amazing energies for the spring equinox under the guidance of an elated Quan Yin and you have a perfect recipe for growth. Can I connect online? Yes group energies formed by online groups can be just as powerful as those made in person but need everyone to be true to themselves. We get that question all the time, as it’s not always possible to travel to high energy points for every equinox, solstice and full moon. That’s the primary reason we have monthly online healing meditations. Yet there is no real substitute for spending hours or overnight at such high energy sites as the Vortex Healing Centre to reboost and rekindle all that you are. Come and join us as the vortex and experience the energies for yourself.

T he Sacr ed Symbols of the Stars … It was after a trip to Egypt in 2007 that I began channelling sacred geometry artworks I called Alien Art. I had an overwhelming urge to draw - shapes upon shapes and when I stopped to look at what I had drawn I was amazed. I began drawing the
symbol in pencil, then colours would come through, finishing with the holographic top layer of gold and silver pen. My style has changed and evolved over the past few years and I now draw what I refer to as Universal Symbols, as everyone has the ability to connect to them. On 11/11/2011 I received information that it was time for a new card deck, and at the beginning of 2012 they came flooding through. First I received the name and then saw symbol and drew it. Next came roughly a month of integrating the huge energy and discovering the magic behind the symbol. My life has completely changed since working with these amazing frequencies of light! Their galactic sacred geometry is channelled straight from Source and heals like nothing I have experienced before. The transformations I have witnessed in my husband, myself and my many students has been nothing short of miraculous! The Galactic Goddess Starina. Phone 0411 399 777. www. thegalacticgoddess.com.au
Modern Day Pilgrimage to Egypt
“A modern day pilgrimage” is how Mark Anns, a psychologist with an interest in transpersonal psychology, described the tours he accompanies to Egypt. Mark was trained by Mary Shaw (Consciousgateways), and in May 2014 he will accompany a small group of participants, who will explore their own connection to the ancient land of Egypt.When asked why Egypt, Mark stated Egypt has a fascination for many, and there are those who feel a calling to journey to the ancient sites. The tour offers the opportunity to immerse yourself and experience this connection.

Sophia Think Tank
Life throws so many questions our way we often flounder in knowing the answers and the direction
ahead. It can become really confusing and we look around for signposts and manuals and gurus, but often carry on feeling alone and disappointed. But there is some great wisdom out there and it does us good to be reminded of it along the way. Such wisdom for life comes from many diverse sources, sometimes from people who are well known in the world of ideas. At other times it comes from people who have lived full lives and offer their experience to us and sometimes it is to be found in the words of a child speaking knowingly into a situation. That’s why we have put together a low key, laid back monthly event we call Cafe Conversations: We invite you to be a part of these conversations so we can seek wisdom together that can be applied for personal and social wellbeing. Sophia is a Greek word meaning ‘wisdom’ and we spend a lot of time looking at the issues of today and seeking wisdom to apply to everyday lives. Check out the details on our website WWW.ST2.COM.AU

Transform weight loss drudgery into creative healthy weight
Over the years I obser ved a repeated trend; skimpy starvation diets, lots of time consuming exercises, lose a few kilos then reach a hard to shift plateau. Just a few off track moments, indulging old habits and more kilos gained then lost. Neuro- science and mind power. Did you know that
95% of our responses to life are unconscious habits, while only 5% is the creative conscious response? Proven research showed that it is possible to anchor exercise to music so that the body reaps the benefits every time that piece of music is heard. Have you noticed that as soon as you think of dieting you feel hungrier, even though the focus is losing weight? Dieting kicks in the survival fear, the subconscious sends aler t messages, looks for ways to protect the body from starvation, hangs on to access weight and finds the lost weight again. A conscious 5% focus on weight loss will always trigger a powerful 95% unconscious search for lost weight, resulting more easily in weight gain. Thetahealingc immediately converts new conscious programs relating to healthy weight into subconscious beliefs. When there is no inner conflict between the conscious and subconscious mind, successful teamwork begins. Access weight drops off, healthy weight is restored and maintained with ease and grace.

The Way of Liberation An Interview
deeper the paradox can get. Well the first thing that has to happen is that you have to star t to get real. You have to be willing to encounter your experience as it actually is, and stop pretending that it’s different than it is. Especially when someone has had a really deep insight, it can be really humbling to see that there’s still a lot of confusion here, there’s still a lot of division. To just to kind of humble yourself to acknowledge what your experience is and just to get really real on a human level. In the way that I teach, it’s a combination of questioning and meditation. I think in one sense meditation is
really more useful after awakening, when you combine deep meditation with deep enquiry in a very precise way … that’s really difficult to explain in a short amount of time because it’s unique for each person. But for most people it’s a real journey from their awakening to liberation. It varies from person to person, but for those who don’t have tremendously overwhelming psychological division, that don’t have some horrendous absolutely traumatic background, like so many people do unfor tunately, but for somebody who’s relatively psychologically coherent, between their
awakening one community at a time . . .
awakening and settling into their real enlightenment and liberation, if everything goes right it’s probably in 5 to 15 years. Every once in a while you have someone who just takes that leap and it just happens but that’s a few times in a generation.

And then people have to start to be able to stay awake. The question becomes “How is it that I ‘un-enlighten’ myself?” … To investigate exactly how your own conditioning holds you out of that consciousness. How does it do whatever things you haven’t dealt with? What are things that your psychology is trying to avoid? You know, there’s a whole array of issues that could come up and do come up for people. And that’s a really big part of having a cer tain amount psychological coherence. It’s not necessary in order to awaken but it’s absolutely necessary in order to have it become an effor tless expression of who you are in your being. So initially it has to deal with the psychology and that’s different person to person and there’s a lot more than that. Beyond that then you get into much more of, I guess you’d say the esoteric realms of awakening. For instance, when people awaken they all have this experience or insight that there is no separate self … or there is no self. And then later of course that self that didn’t seem to exist comes back. (Laughter) Even though they know that the self is not there, that it doesn’t have any existence, it can still create a lot of problems. And so one of the things that are mistaken in a lot of modern spiritual circles is that there is a spot that if they have seen or have had an insight that there is no self, that that is the same as the actual experience of having no self. And the two are very very different. You can have an insight that there is no essential separate self but to actually experience the absence of that separate self is completely different than the insight of it. And a lot of times people equate the two as the same thing. They’re not the same thing and to go from the insight of no self to actually living it, that’s where the self has to be, I guess you could say, emptied out. Even if you see that it doesn’t have any inherent or fundamental reality, it doesn’t mean that the movement of it, that the psychology doesn’t have any impact. ENZA: And how do you empty out this self that doesn’t want to go away or this self doesn’t exist? (Laughter)

BY LEO DRIOLI
Leo Drioli has been a pioneering leader and spiritual teacher in the consciousness movement for over 25 years as past editor of Golden Age magazine, author of national bestseller Every Moment’s a Miracle and co-editor of InnerSelf, a national newspaper for the last 11 years.
