15 Soul to Soul with Cinzia Vuat 19 Astrology: May July 2017 by Gerry Crow

Every moment carries within it a distinct vibration. No moment ever totally matches another, yet, life flows in distinct cycles and if we take the time to investigate closely, patterns emerge. Mastering life requires a clear perception of these patterns or life cycles and our place in them, which go far to revealing just where we are right now, how the past has helped shape the present and what the future might hold. The purpose of this newspaper has always been to inspire and uplift, and in so doing help in this endeavour – to bring one closer to the Innerself by shining the light of Presence through the insight and learning that each writer offers. This issue begins with Dr. Graham Williams’ exploration into the power of sound. Music, he reminds us, is one of the most profound forms of meditation. Drawing on his 30 plus years as a teacher of mindfulness, coupled with his own musical mastery, he clearly reveals the immense benefits of working deeply with music and mantra. Next, Enza Vita offers her insights on living in Presence through her Q & A column, in this issue’s article “Discovering That in You which Never Goes”. Followed by Leo Drioli’s heart offering “Be as the Quail in the Freedom Fields of Spring”, a reminder of the importance of caring and connection along the path to awakening. In the centre pages the Moon Calendar by Mari Garcia will help you navi-

gate the next quarter’s waters. Our Healthy Living pages begin with Om Swami’s look at how to elevate our moods and boost our energy this winter by simply adjusting the foods that we eat. This follows with Belle McCaleb, our resident naturopath’s advice on how to live with herpes. Are Past Lives real? Two articles exploring evidence of reincarnation, the first by Ervin Laszo & Ashley Peake, present three stories that go a long way to proving that past lives are in fact a a reality. And second, a way to access and directly work with our own past lives written by Theta Healer Susanne Marie. Next, we move into Fran Tomlin’s dedication to much loved Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron in “The Wisdom of No Escape”, followed by Adelaide psychic Cinzia Vuat’s answers to your questions in her regular “Soul to Soul” column. This issue’s special feature showcases 17 “Women Making a difference” in their community around Australia. And we close with the May –July 2017 astrological forecast by Gerry Crow – “Eye on the Sky”. May this moment and each one that follows bring you deeper into clarity, longer in peace and happier and more fulfilled in Presence. In loving service to the Flow, Enza Vita and Leo Drioli

InnerSelf and personal transformation for people around the globe. Primal Spirituality courses teach the enlightened principles of emotional and spiritual intelligence. Utilizing these principles, the courses are designed to guide participants through 7 stages of personal transformation. PS#1 will be presented for the first time in Australia at Riverdell Spiritual Centre this June and will focus on the first two stages of the transformation process Blessing and Understanding. Throughout the course participants will learn: • That blessing dispels internal discord, disillusionment and low self-esteem. Learning to recognise it leads to peace, confidence and joy. • That blessing connects people together in a harmonious and fulfilling way resulting in universal love for ourselves and each other. • That blessing has the capacity to nurture true inner wisdom. Learning to trust it leads to profound changes in every level of your life. • To understand your emotional vulnerabilities and see them as gifts of expression. • Through understanding, you see what most people can’t – the inner landscape of human experience • That understanding brings spiritual intelligence – which is the awareness of the powerful creative forces that drive the human experience. The Riverdell Spiritual Centre is located just outside of Gawler. South Australia and has been a spiritually focused teaching and learning site for 37 years. We are delighted to be hosting

the upcoming Primal Spirituality event and to be introducing our International presenters Ruth Buckingham and Phil Richardson, in conjunction with Dr Andrew Horwood the Regional Director of the Australian Emissaries and experienced holistic Medical practitioner. Phil Richardson is an international speaker, teacher and mentor who invites people to reconnect with their already-present deeper innate spirituality and to bring that awareness in simple and relevant ways through every aspect of their living. His more than 40 years of commitment to his spiritual path and the training he has undergone in spiritual education, Attunement and emotional work has equipped him well as a mentor, facilitator and teacher. Ruth Buckingham is a teacher, facilitator and speaker. Her practical approach encourages people to discover the truth of themselves and bring the expression of that into their daily lives. Ruth travels extensively with her husband, Phil Richardson, facilitating workshops and giving talks in Australia, South Africa, Singapore, Norway, The Netherlands, UK and the USA. D r.

Damanhur - a Spiritual Community by Dino Dalbello Damanhur is a Federation of spiritual communities, with its own Constitution, culture, art, music, currency, schools and uses of science and technology. Its citizens are open to sharing their knowledge and research with other groups and cultures of the world, with anyone who is interested in exploring these themes. Damanhur holds events at numerous centres, organizations and points of outreach in many cities around the world, and also hosts thousands of visitors each year who participate in tours, seminars, retreats and courses through Damanhur University. The community has attracted interest from scholars, educators and researchers in the fields of art, social sciences, spirituality, medicine and alternative health, economics and environmental sustainability. We are working to create a similar community in Australia at this time.

When it was founded

Damanhur was founded in 1975 from the inspiration of Falco Tarassaco, nĂŠ Oberto Airaudi

(1950-2013). His enlightened and pragmatic vision created a fertile reality based on solidarity, sharing, love and respect for the environment. As a result, Damanhur has slowly expanded into a United Nations award-winning sustainable eco-community. Staying true to Falco's original vision of a community based upon ethical and spiritual values, Damanhur has captivated attention around the world as a laboratory for experimenting with sustainable ways of living, in harmony with nature and its elements and forces. Damanhur is perhaps best known for its extraordinary subterranean work of art and architecture, a cathedral known as the Temples of Humankind. It has been profiled on international television as perhaps being the "Eighth Wonder of The World." This complex was entirely dug by hand into the heart of the mountain. Decorated with mosaics, stained glass, sculptures, wall paintings and other works of art, it is dedicated to the awakening the divine spark present in every

human being.

Where con te (Namaste) is a way of life

This spark is evident on the faces and in the daily actions of those who live at Damanhur. It is where namaste...or as we say here, con te (or, "I am with you")...comes to life, where every encounter is an opportunity to remember our shared essential divine nature. Our citizens reside in 25 distinct "nucleo communities," inspired by Falco's original tenets of self-refinement through positive thinking, promoting diversity, embracing change and pursuing one's dreams with a sense of humour and adventure. Every day, Damanhurians experience these philosophies by taking action in every area...from art, culture, family life, labour and politics to research on the subtle energies that comprise the universe. In fact, to emphasize the importance of change, humour and a respect for life, many Damanhur citizens choose to adopt an animal and plant name, which

they use every day. While the pursuit of one's individual talents and "ways of service" are always encouraged, Damanhur residents agree that the community as a whole is equally important. The individual is both "I" and "we." As one community, Damanhurians (and any others who wish to join in) recognize themselves as a Popolo Spirituale (Spiritual People). DAMANHURtube/videos Damanhur, the spiritual path... which we call the School of Meditation...leads every citizen through a lifelong process of selfexploration and search for the meaning of existence. This is facilitated through the study of ancient magical traditions and the celebration of the rhythms of nature. On this path, everyone learns to develop their talents and overcome their weak points (and helping others do the same). Damanhur has created its own written Constitution, which contains the principles which are the basis for the social and spiritual experience.

A sustainable community in constant experimentation

In 2005, Damanhur received recognition from the United Nation's Global Forum on Human Settlements as a model for a sustainable society. It was the result of Damanhur's deep respect for the environment as a conscious, sensitive entity and our citizens' commitment to coexisting with the plant and animal worlds (as well as intelligences that inhabit this universe) in a reverent and nurturing way. One expression of this philosophy is Music of the Plants, in which communication with the plant world inspires concerts where the musicians are trees, and plants play music. pUTjCPiCTw0?t=111 Damanhur citizens cultivate organic food and livestock, and restructure and build according to green building principles. Some citizens have created companies in the fields of renewable energy, eco-clothing, food production, and much more. Damanhurians prefer natural healing methods and a holistic view of wellness, but not to the exclusion of science and medicine. The goal is to appreciate life in all its forms, while leaving the lowest possible impact on the environment.

Where appropriate, leadingedge technologies are employed as a valuable ally in the defence of health and nature. As you can see, what sets Damanhur apart from other Intentional Communities is that it actively utilizes the practical application of science, research and a spiritual philosophy in harmony with the planet. Google Damanhur and click on Images or Video tab to see the beauty that has been created there.

in the flow with Dr Graham Williams

Director of The Lifeflow Meditation Centre and an adjunct lecturer in the School of Medicine at Flinders University.


Music is the great mantra tradition of our own culture and I’m including in this all the different kinds of music we hear each day – popular, jazz, rock, classical, dance, rap, military and film music. The word music is derived from the word muse which means “to meditate on something”. So music is a form of meditation. Mantra is a Sanskrit word that comes from mano meaning mind, and tra meaning tool. Mantra, then, is a tool for focussing the mind through meditating on sound. This is also what you are doing when you are listening to music.

What is mantra?

With mantra you are using a sound, or a series of sounds, or a series of words, as a focus for your mind. Repeating a sound over and over holds your focus and allows you to let go of the constant undercurrent of thought that generally runs our lives. Mantras open your mind beyond its immediate concerns so that you are able to feel yourself as an integral part of humanity and life. Mantras also speak directly to your body and your emotions and so can be used to get to know all the different qualities and aspects of your mind on a level which is normally impossible. For example, I had no idea that the image and idea of compassion which I had learned was so syrupy and so inappropriate to reality until I used a mantra of compassion as part of my own practice.

Music as mantra

In our music tradition we express and explore in sound all the different kinds of emotions which we experience. Even though you are not immediately aware of it, every sound you hear vibrates in your body and so your body

responds and resonates directly with all the sounds of music. If you have ever been close to a horse when there is a sudden sound you can see a shiver go right across its body. Our bodies do exactly the same thing. If there is a sudden, loud noise your whole body will jump. But at a more subtle level you can become aware of your body resonating to the sounds around you; for example, to the sound of the sea. As you open to this you can feel the sound of a breaking wave go right through your whole body – it’s an incredibly blissful feeling. This is one of the things which makes listening to music such a powerful experience. Music is doing exactly what mantra is designed to do – creating sounds which resonate directly in specific parts of your body. It makes a fascinating exercise to explore this as you listen to music. There is music which comes straight from the earth and resonates directly in your gut, like the sound of the didgeridoo. One of the things people love about pop music is the pounding rhythm. You can literally feel your groin and your belly responding. The pure energy of music which dances and is joyful also resonates directly in your belly. We all love music of the heart, all the different expressions of the emotions we feel in our hearts. So music can be tender, wistful, yearning, melancholic or passionate and, as you listen, you can feel your heart and your body responding to the point where it can bring you to tears. For example, everyone has their favourite song which is associated with when they fell in love for the first time. Music can catch you in the throat and as its energy rises through your body it can find its

release in your throat like a shout of joy or a cry of anguish. And then there is music of the head, music which is clear and cool, working its way through exquisitely intricate patterns. Finally, music can move through your whole body, rising in a powerful surge from your gut right through to an ecstatic explosion at the crown of your head.

Embracing our emotions

In a sense learning mantra is exactly like learning how to write for all the different instruments of music with all their different qualities and colours – except you are learning to do this with your own mind, emotions and body. Every possible emotion can be learned through both music and mantra – joy, wild energy, determination, power, love, ecstasy, and deep peace, to name just a few. Great music is great, not only because it expresses all these emotions, but also because it holds opposite emotions together at the same time, so that joy is infused with sadness, melancholy with bliss. You can also learn how to take a potentially destructive emotion like anger and by using it creatively, completely transform it into crystal clarity, for you learn that every destructive emotion has its complementary creative form. Through the power of sound it is possible to know and to express the entire range of human emotional experience. Dr. Graham Williams has over thirty years’ experience teaching both meditation and mindfulness, is the Director of The Lifeflow Meditation Centre and an adjunct lecturer in the School of Medicine at Flinders University. He has written two books, Insight and Love which is in its third edition and Life in Balance. They are both available online. The Lifeflow Centre provides regular meditation courses in their city studio and retreats at their retreat centre in a beautiful, relaxing hills setting. P 8379 9001 W

Discovering That in You which Never Goes Q & A with Enza Vita

Please email your questions to Q: Sometimes there is clarity and a knowing of what I am. At other times I lose that clarity and I become completely involved in “me.”

A: Final reality can be defined as that which is eternal, changeless, and enduring. It is always here. Who we really are, awareness, isn’t here one minute and gone the next. It is changeless. It is timeless. Yes, the content of awareness changes, things come and go, and experiences don’t last forever, but the good news is that in essence the content is absolutely not who we are. Whatever you can possess and then lose is the content of awareness and not awareness itself. And because it is constantly fluctuating and changing, the best thing you can do is to view it as nothing more than an experience and then release it. Even the incredible bliss of a heightened spiritual experience will not last forever. The bliss is simply more content, but who you are is the presence/awareness that is aware of the bliss. Consequently, when the experience of bliss ends, can it be said that you have lost awareness? No, absolutely not. The experience of bliss may be gone, but the awareness within which it occurred remains. It is impossible to possess awareness, because you can never be separate from it, and because awareness is not a thing, be that a spiritual state, a thought, or an experience. Awareness, always present in each moment, is not an experience that one “enters into,”

A: The true guru is actually you made manifest, not as you think you are but the real you, presence/awareness itself. Since who you truly are is the totality of being, you are capable of generating many forms, both human and non-human, to bring the focus of the illusory seeker back to itself. “Guru” is really another word for awareness. In regard to the human teacher, if one day you meet someone in whose company you find you can be yourself, and if you feel clear, peaceful, happy, and your mind becomes calm for no apparent reason, you may like to keep his or her company from time to time. Jean Klein, a well-known speaker and author on the subject of non-duality, said, “You will know a true teacher because you will feel yourself, in your autonomy, in his or her presence.” With the true teacher you are free to be yourself rather than bound by rules and agendas. The true teacher doesn’t take the identity and role of the teacher

seriously and has no need for his/ her students to feel complete. The greatness of a teacher is not in psychic powers, lineages, or credentials, in the numbers of followers or eloquence or intellect or charisma. Greatness is in the extent to which the vehicle has been taken over by the realization. In reality there is no difference between you and the guru, as there is no difference between the space in this cup and the space in that cup. The cup cannot limit the all-pervasive space. Ultimately, there are no teachers or teachings because there aren’t any students. There is only ever unconditional presence— Oneness meeting Itself as That.

“If a book had a soul, then this book would be brimming with Spirit. Leo has a unique way of conveying deep truths using simple, yet beautiful language. His words follow a direct route from the mind to the heart, and can touch anyone, no matter where they are on their spiritual path. ”

“Leo Drioli’s sound is similar to that of Cat Stevens and John Lennon – ruminations that are of an inspirational, motivational and expressive nature.” — Kyle Jarminer, The Examiner “I was on my way to work and just felt like I needed to listen to your EP again. ‘Let Your Spirit Sing’ is such a beautiful song. When I heard the words ‘Open Up My Heart, Show Me How To Love’... I just started welting in tears, seriously … I was trying to be conscious of other drivers not seeing me cry (ha ha). I played that about 3 times in the car this morning and just started singing to it.” — Elio, Composer of The Healing Codes Leo Drioli is the Editor and Publisher of Innerself Newspaper, the author of “Every Moment’s a Miracle” and as a singer/songwriter he has released his CD “Let Your Spirit Sing”. The process of awakening is at the heart of all of Leo’s work. Leo Drioli’s words and music, dig deep into our collective search and yearning for what is true, real and lasting in this world and beyond it. All his songs stem from that innate urge to connect to the depth of things and to realize our own true nature as Presence.

Be as the Quail in the Free Fields of Spring

Books • CDs • DVDs niscent of Rumi’s odes to his Beloved Shams, this collection will steal the heart of any reader yearning for liberation.

By Leo Drioli You came to me the other night to remind me of the importance of caring and connection. You sat quietly in that precious space of pure being … interbeing. And I sat quietly with you, mostly in silence and stillness. You gently reminded me that one of the primary awakenings on the path was to the Self. “When this Self is realised,” you whispered, “vast, eternal surrounds reveal themselves as our ground of being. And in this, as this, from this … immense love always dwells and flows. “And from its outpouring we awaken to our own innate and ever abiding freedom …. The spiritual liberation of the Self, the Soul, the Jivan Mukta.” As we sat together in the vast, gentle and sweet silence, I was reminded that on entering this life, we come in with a vision, a mission and a plan. Our days are truly numbered, yet, each one a stepping stone deeper, closer, clearer … moving us back into that which we have now realised ourselves to be. And from this, looking out into the world and trusting that all we really came to do was to love. Sitting together, in this new way, I feel deeply loved, deeply protected and cared for and deeply connected to the God that creates and dis-creates all things. Sitting here, you have reminded me that yes, I am eternal, but my days in this life are truly numbered. A sobering reminder to be with each day, as they will quickly pass. I take a deep breath in and allow my heart to listen for the whispers and in the silence, three instructions arrive: 1. Be “with” each moment. Sit in “my” presence, know that I am here with you always, and be “in” each moment, allowing it to reveal the purity of being that it always contains. 2. Share the gifts you receive. Your life is yours to live as you choose and in it, infinite opportunities will arise to share the Presence that is the only constancy. Open up to the truth that no matter where you are or what you do – love dwells here. 3. Live as the Self. Liberation asks only one thing of us – to live authentically, with courage to be who we really are, to live as THIS. And to remember, that every breath is another doorway in and out. Always come back to THIS and freedom is always yours. Rumi reminds us: “Come and be Love’s willing slave, for Love’s slavery will save you. Forsake the slavery of this world and take up Love’s sweet service. “The free, the world enslaves, but to slaves Love grants freedom. I crave release from this world like a bird from its egg; free me from this shell that clings. As from the grave, grant me new life.

Override-My Quest to go Beyond Brain Training


ODYSSEY Poems of Spiritual Transformation By Virginia Lee

The world today desperately needs clear voices of inspiration, peace, clarity and hope to remind us all of our own divine purpose here. Virginia’s words offer exactly this. In the time honoured tradition of the classic mystic/poets such as Kahlil Gibran, William Blake and Rumi, Virginia Lee offers up her work in joyful service to that profound one that sits within us all. LEO DRIOLI — Co-Editor of InnerSelf Newspaper and author of Every Moment’s a Miracle Virginia Lee entered into embodiment this lifetime with full memory of what we call Heaven, that placeless place that in truth surrounds us always, yet isn’t usually evident until we move beyond embodiment into the inner worlds between incarnation. This realm of peace and harmony inspires and informs all of Virginia’s work to this day, bringing the listener or reader of her poetry in direct contact with this same placeless place of peace and harmony within themselves.

Delving into the latest studies on brain plasticity, which indicate that brain games don’t actually do much to make you smarter, she tries to square her findings with the reality of brain plasticity – which the brain adapts physically as we learn something new. An entertaining, smart self-help book for people who don’t normally go much for self-help books. If your mind has a mind of its own, this book will teach you how to stop it wandering off.

GLUCOMANNAN A Natural Weight Loss Supplement That Works

GLUCOMANNAN is a natural, water-soluble dietary fibre extracted from the roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac. It has recently gained considerable attention as an effective weight loss supplement. GLUCOMANNAN absorbs water and becomes gel-like. It “sits” in your gut and promotes a feeling of fullness, helping you eat fewer calories.

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

For weight loss, take a dosage of 1 gram (1/4 tsp) in a glass of water 15-20 minutes before your meals up to 3 times per day.

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. Mari Garcia is a professional consulting astrologer.

Boost Mood and Energy With These Foods

tolerant then milk and other dairy products also help in balancing neurotransmitter production.


BY OM SWAMI How you feel mentally affects your body and the balance of your neurotransmitters in the brain and your physical health influences your emotional and mental health. You can eat all the right foods and exercise well, but if your mind is not supporting your body with positive thoughts and attitudes, such measures show no improvement in your physical health. It is one of the primary reasons, I observed, that why a majority of people are unable to lose weight even though they stick to a strict diet and exercise routine— because what’s in your mind matters as much as what’s in your stomach. If you are seeking to balance neurotransmitters in the brain naturally, you need to consider not only the foods you eat and the lifestyle you live, but the thoughts you think as well!

Foods For Balancing Brain Neurochemicals

Ayurveda believes that the same food can have different impact on different individuals based on their constitution (prakriti). The assessment is based on three humors of wind (vata), bile (pitta) and phlegm (kapha). Further, it states that beyond just being heavy or light on digestion, or being acidic (ushna or amala) or alkaline (sheeta or snigdha), foods can be full of goodness (sattvic), passion (rajasic) and ignorance (tamasic). It means that certain foods can have balancing effects on neurotransmitters in your brain that make you feel calm and composed, while some others can infuse passion in you and make you agitated and some can flare you up in other ways.


are excellent for increasing and balancing neurotransmitter production in the brain, especially GABA. GABA is the most powerfully calming and relaxing neurotransmitter the brain produces. Oranges are also good in GABA production and regulation.


Protein, B Vitamins, Vitamin C and minerals (calcium, magnesium, selenium, etc.) are needed to produce serotonin and increase neurotransmitters in the brain in general. Green leafy vegetables (especially spinach), brown rice, tofu, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds are full of ingredients required for the production of serotonin, which is an important neurotransmitter for positive mood. Walnuts, flaxseeds, hemp and chia seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids that are excellent for raising serotonin levels and balancing neurotransmitters naturally. While eggs and fish are also good for serotonin production, yogic scriptures classify all meat and poultry as tamasic food. Tamasic foods are acidic and promote aggression in the body and so should be limited in the frequency they are eaten.



Almonds, lentils, brown rice, beans, melons, cantaloupes are one community a time sattvic and alkalineat foods that


Ripe bananas are an excellent source of dopamine and work to powerfully increase neurotransmitter levels in the brain naturally. Free radicals deplete dopamine levels. So, if you eat food rich in antioxidants, they protect your dopamine stores. Dopamine is important for feelings of pleasure and happiness as well as generally supporting healthy mood and energy levels. Most citrus fruits and berries are packed with antioxidants. Besides, the vitamins these fruits contain combine with the amino acids to produce and balance neurotransmitters naturally. Sesame seeds also help in dopamine production. Coffee, alcohol and sugary drinks have a. .negative impact on dopamine levels. If you are not lactose in-

Wheat germs are rich in nutrients that raise acetylcholine levels in the brain, which is another important neurotransmitter that affects mood, memory, anxiety and more. Eggs are also good for acetylcholine. Yogurt aids in production and balance of neurotransmitters but according to Ayurveda it has a negative impact on the cellular excretory system. Ayurveda states that each cell in the body has an inlet and an outlet and that yogurt blocks the outlet of the cells creating a breeding ground for numerous ailments. Yogurt is also acidic in nature. But if you feel good after eating yogurt, you should feel free to eat it to help increase neurotransmitters in your brain. In any case, it’s not good to eat it after sunset (or before going to bed) as it vitiates the three humors of wind, bile and phlegm.

Lifestyle Changes You Can Make to Increase Neurotransmitter Levels in the Brain

Ideally, no more than twenty percent of your diet should be acidic. Most of your diet should consist of vegetarian food items because they are living foods that help to naturally increase and balance neurotransmitters. Here are some golden pointers for you to combat depression and maintain high levels of neurotransmitters in the brain at all times: 1. Try to eat vegetarian, organic and whole foods whenever you can. 2. Avoid processed, canned, acidic and starchy foods. 3. Eating strictly at the same time every day has a remarkable effect on the body. Above all, it keeps the metabolic processes in check including acid production in the body. It has a direct and instant effect on your health and increases neurotransmitter levels naturally.

4. Avoid large gaps between your meals because, among other perils, this ultimately results in raised insulin level. Eating wholesome foods at the same time every day and avoiding large gaps between your meals can also help you overcome bingeeating and bulimia and maintain high levels of neurotransmitters in the brain throughout the day. 5. Go to bed at about the same time every day. Even if you have insomnia or you can’t go to sleep for any other reason, don’t be stressed about it. Just take shower, freshen up, and lie down in your bed. Don’t worry about being unable to fall asleep. Just take deep breaths. It is best to sleep to your right as this will start the left nostril which is the lunar channel. Resting and sleeping have powerful effects on brain neurotransmitter levels as well. 6. Breathing through the left nostril has a cooling and a calming effect on the body and mind and breathing can absolutely affect and increase neurotransmitter levels. 7. No matter what, don’t replace your sleeping time with screen time. So, if you can’t go to bed, don’t get up and either start watching TV or go online and surf the net. Trust me on this one (or validate it for yourself). You can put some light music or best is just listen to your breath. If you get disturbing thoughts, pay no attention as a matter of principle and resolution and simply listen to your own breath. Staring at synthetic blue lights from screens can reduce neurotransmitter levels, melatonin levels and make it harder to sleep. 8. Make sure that you eat around four hours prior to going to bed. This is absolutely critical for a sound, rejuvenating and nourishing sleep and balanced neurotransmitter levels in the


brain. If you find it hard to go to bed empty stomach, you can have a wholesome light snack (like a fruit or a piece or two of whole-wheat bread with a slice of cucumber or so — without cheese) an hour before you go to bed. 9. The most important principle of diet is: don’t be obsessed. Listen to your body and eat in moderation. 10. Light to moderate exercise and movement are integral to increasing neurotransmitter levels in the brain naturally. Walking, yoga and low-impact sports are ideal. If you worked out physically during the day, and you ate the right diet, no matter what your state of mind, you will have a sound sleep and have done most everything in your power to balance your brains neurotransmitters naturally.

Glucomannan Fibre - a Weight loss Supplement that Works lose up to 8-10 pounds(3.6-4.5 kg) of weight in 5 weeks* Glucomannan is a natural, water-soluble dietary fibre extracted from the roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac. It has recently gained considerable attention as an effective weight loss supplement. Glucomannan absorbs water and becomes gel-like. It “sits” in your gut and promotes a feeling of fullness, helping you eat fewer calories. It absorbs so much liquid that if you place 1/4 teaspoon into a bowl of water, the entire content turns into a gel. These unique properties are believed to mediate its effects on weight loss. Glucomannan is believed to promote weight loss via several mechanisms: 1. It takes up space in the stomach and promotes a feeling of fullness (satiety), thereby reducing food intake at a

subsequent meal. 2. Like other soluble fibre, it delays emptying of the stomach, contributing to increased satiety and it reduces the absorption of fat

Feeding the friendly gut bacteria may also have other benefits, and some studies have shown a correlation between altered gut bacteria and body weight.

Living with Herpes

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a very common recurrent viral infection that lays dormant for various periods in the nervous system with no symptoms. When it reactivates blisters (medically termed vesicles) appear in the affected area – the classic “cold sore”. There are two main types – HSV 1 is most common with blisters usually appearing around the mouth, and HSV 2 that most commonly affects the genital region. Both types are spread by contact with someone who is shedding the virus at the time even though no lesions may be apparent. This virus is commonly passed from people who are unaware they are carriers as they have never had any symptoms. It is estimated that 1 in 8 Australians have it and that around 85% of people carry HSV type 1 and 20% carry HSV type 2. It is twice as common in adult women as it is in adult men and is most prevalent in women aged 35-44 years ( There is no cure for HSV however natural medicine can offer several strategies to minimise outbreaks. Firstly, these generally occur when people are run down – stress, fatigue, poor diet and poor general health all compromise the immune function increasing the risk of an outbreak. So the first port of call is healthy immune function through a healthy diet, good sleep hygiene, adequate exercise and stress management strategies. Secondly HSV replication can be influenced by very specific dietary approaches. Thirdly, specific anti-viral, immune and adrenal boosting herbal and nutritional medicines can reduce the incidence, severity and duration of out breaks. Several herbs used topically can speed healing and reduce the discomfort associated with active lesions. General dietary approaches include increasing the intake of

antioxidants with antiviral / immune boosting activity – particularly Vitamin C, bioflavonoids and Zinc. High vitamin C/bioflavenoid foods include the citrus family, kiwi and ripe tomatoes. Supplementation with a buffered Vitamin C formula can also help – the usual dose recommended for adults is about 3,000 mg a day. High zinc foods include whole grains, beans, and poultry. Zinc supplementation can also help although it is possible to overdose on zinc so professional advice is recommended – generally around 25 mg of zinc daily is considered safe. It is important to assess your diet for foods that may be stressful to your gut, liver and immunity. These may include specific food intolerances, such as dairy or gluten, or general stressors such as high sugars, processed foods and bad fats. Specific food intolerance testing is available though qualified naturopathic practitioners in Australia. It may be useful to undergo a gut and liver “Detox” program that can help rebalance gut flora and reduce liver and immune stress. Professional advice is recommended for optimal outcomes but even a good multi-strain probiotic or high probiotic foods such as Kefir or Kombuchu is a start. A very specific dietary approach to HSV management involves something called the lysine/arginine ratio in foods. Lysine and arginine are amino acids (bits of proteins) found in all sorts of foods. Lysine inhibits while arginine promotes HSV activity. Choosing foods with a high lysine to arginine ratio and limiting those with the reverse helps to decrease outbreaks. As many “healthy” foods are relatively high in arginine it is reasonable to include them but be sure to include enough high lysine foods to balance out the arginine. So for example many grains includ-

ing wheat, corn, rice are relatively high in arginine but fish and chicken are relatively high in lysine. Therefore combining grains with fish or chicken balances out the problem. This is just one example – it is best to obtain an arginine to lysine ratio chart (off the internet is fine) and become familiar with it. Of course you can also supplement L-Lysine in tablet form. The usual recommended adult dose is about 3000 mg daily. Herbal medicines are another potent approach to minimising HSV outbreaks. There are a number of anti-viral/immune boosting herbs available from a qualified herbalist. My favourites include Andrographis, Echinacea, Astragalus, Cats Claw, Coriolus versicolor, Calendula and Ganoderma lucidum. Topical application antivirals, astringents and wound healers speeds recovery. My favourites include Aloe vera, Calendula, Licorice and Sage. Paying attention to stress management through specific life style approaches such as yoga, Tai Chi or Meditation as well as specific herbals to support the adrenals can foster good general health, immunity and viral resistance. Many of the adrenal herbs (called Adaptogens) are also potent immune boosters with antiviral activity. Andrographis, Astragalus, Echinancea are three such multifunctional herbs. Others at the top of my adrenal/ immune support list are Rhodiola, Withania, and Siberian Ginseng. Unfortunately if you have HSV there is currently no medical cure. However, you can influence the incidence, severity and duration of HSV out breaks through natural medicine and lifestyle approaches. These approaches foster good health, resilience and resistant to viral out break.

The Evidence for Reincarnation Three Scientifically Documented True Stories That Prove Past Lives Are Real

BY ERVIN LASZLO & ANTHONY PEAKE Stories suggestive of reincarnation are not limited, whether geographically or culturally. They occur in all corners of the planet and among people of all cultures. The Reincarnation-Type Experiences The pioneering research on recent reincarnation stories is the work of Ian Stevenson, a Canadian-American psychiatrist who worked at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. During more than four decades, Stevenson investigated the reincarnation-type experiences of thousands of children, both in the West and in the East. Some of the past life memories recounted by the children have been verified as the experience of a person who had lived previously, and whose death matched the impressions reported by the child. Sometimes the child carried a birthmark associated with the death of the person with whom he or she identified, such as an indentation or discoloration on the part of the body where a fatal bullet entered, or a malformation on a hand or the foot the deceased had lost.

The Case of the Paddy Fields Tragedy

A case reported by Stevenson involved a Sri Lankan girl who remembered a past life in which she had drowned in a flooded paddy field. She described that a bus had driven past and splashed her with water just before she died. Subsequent research searching for the proof of this reincarnation found that a girl in a nearby village had drowned after she had stepped back to avoid a passing bus while walking on a narrow road above flooded paddy fields. She fell backward into deep water and died. The girl who manifested this experience had, from a very early age, shown an irrational fear of buses; she would also get hysterical if taken near deep water. She had a fondness for bread and had a liking for sweet food. This was unusual, in that her family did not like either. However, the previous personality was noted for both of these preferences.

The Case of Swarnlata Mishra

Another typical Stevenson case was that of Swarnlata Mishra, born in a small village in Madhya Pradesh in 1948. When she was three years old she began having spontaneous past-life memories of being a girl called Biya Pathak, who lived in a village more than a hundred miles away. She described that the house Biya lived in had four rooms and was painted white. She began to sing songs that she claimed she used to know, together with complex dance routines that were unknown to her present family and friends. Six


years later she recognized some people who had been her friends in the past life. This stimulated her father to start writing down what she said and searching for proof of her reincarnation. Her case generated interest outside of the village. One investigator who visited the city discovered that a woman who matched the description given by Swarnlata had died nine years previously. Investigations subsequently confirmed that a young girl called Biya had lived in just such a house in that town. Swarnlata’s father decided to take his daughter to the town and to have her introduced to members of Biya’s family. As a test to see if she indeed was a reincarnated personality, the family introduced people who were not related to the child. Swarnlata immediately identified these individuals as being imposters. Indeed some details of her past life memories were so precise that all were amazed.

Ancestral Memories of Sam Taylor

Another case offering substantial proof of reincarnation involved an eighteen-month-old boy called Sam Taylor. As his diaper was being changed he looked up at his father and said, “When I was your age I used to change your diapers.” Later Sam disclosed details about his grandfather’s life that were completely accurate. He said that his grandfather’s sister had been murdered and that his grandmother had made milkshakes for his grandfather using a food processor. Sam’s parents were adamant that none of these subjects had been discussed in his presence. When he was four years old, Sam was shown a group of old family pictures spread out on a table. Sam happily identified his grandfather every time with the announcement, “That’s me!” In an attempt to test him, his mother selected an old school class photograph showing the grandfather as a young boy. There were sixteen other boys in the photograph. Sam immediately pointed

to one of them, once again announcing that that was him. He was right.

What the Evidence Tells Us

Reincarnation-type experiences can be vivid and convincing to the extent that they appear to be testimony and evidence that a previously living personality has been incarnated in the subject. This belief is strengthened by the observation that birthmarks on the body of the subject correspond to the bodily features of the person whom he or she seems to incarnate. This is most strikingly the case when the past life personality suffered bodily injury. The corresponding marks or deformations sometimes reappear in the subject, seeming to offer proof that reincarnation is indeed occurring. Many observers of this phenomenon, including Stevenson himself, held that matching birthmarks are significant evidence for reincarnation. However, the coincidence of birthmarks and other bodily features in a child with the fate of a previously existing person is not necessarily assurance that that person is reincarnated in the child. It could also be that the brain and body of the child with the given birthmarks and bodily features are especially adapted to recall the experience of a personality with analogous birthmarks and deformities.

WHY DO I LOVE WORKING WITH PAST LIVES? by Susanne Marie When I was much younger ‘past lives’ and what they meant was out of my range of knowledge at least in this lifetime! Although I had heard people talk about them it was not until it was thrust dramatically into my life that I really looked at what it meant to me. Within weeks of meeting my second husband over twenty years ago, I started having flash backs to past lives. First just me and later my then husband became part of those very real and often scary spontaneous flashbacks. This was well documented many years ago in two different publications, including Innerself. It led me on a journey of exploration and study over many years. I read many books, talked to many people and did courses and regressions. It was comforting to know why I had instant strong positive or negative feelings towards certain people. It also helped me to understand why so much of this life I had been searching for something indefinable. It also prompted me to start being true to myself and those around me. After some time it also brought me to discover and learn massage therapies and many alternative therapies including reiki, Thetahealing® and other energy based modalities and to be able to put past lives in that context has been a wonderful adventure. The motivation of those seeking a past life journey is vastly varied. It is sometimes to discover more about what makes them tick, to find out why they have recurring dreams or ‘memories’ , why they have a particularly strong like or dislike towards certain people or maybe to discover answers for why they have been held back or are constantly ill or injured. Some want to decide where they might travel that would be particularly meaningful for them. All of the above can be addressed and the intention set at the beginning of the session. One recent client had a strong urge to find out why she had experienced many challenges in her life, including a bad marriage, a messy divorce and young chil-

dren to raise alone, no job and generally feeling dissatisfied and completely alone, unloved and unloveable in the world. Her childhood in this life was happy with little trauma and the events that led to her recent challenges was puzzling to her. She had felt a lingering undercurrent of something indefinable from an early age. It was becoming more urgent for her to resolve in recent months. We visited two lives from her past. In the first, she had lived a very tough life and died at an early age. This helped her to see where many of her puzzling feelings had come from, especially when she discovered she was approaching the age at which her former self had died. The second that we witnessed was a life where things had begun successfully, but changed at a later time so that some of those same feelings from this life arose. She was a successful author in the 18th century when women rarely were successful in that art. At the height of her considerable success she had a choice to meet and be with a wonderful man but in her arrogance at the time chose to ignore him and to continue to be alone... Much later in that life, she realised she could have combined being with someone and being materially and artistically successful, thus being balanced in the way she is now seeking. She realised that the choices she made then led her to those same feelings she has been lately experiencing. Both of these journeys instantly helped her to see how to change her ideas and attitude and move forward. The session concluded with her having the choice to visit and speak with an angel, an ascended master or a deceased relative. As she moved forward to see who was there, her loved grandfather (now deceased) quickly spoke to her and assured her she is truly well loved and asked her to feel the love that surrounded her. His wife and a number of others all came in to completely surround her with love.

She wept with delight as she experienced this love and was able to feel reassured that she is always loved and always will be. They told her to go forward and follow her passion with confidence and joy. She left determined to do just that with many other insights as well. This is one example of many that I have witnessed. With my clients we have seen many great lives and many challenging lives. I facilitate healing and belief work as we go and it has helped to change the course of many lives in many positive ways.

Q & A with cinzia vuat

by fran tomlin If you haven’t heard of, or read, Pema Chodron then I encourage you to do so. Her teachings are easily understood, basic, simple and profound. They get to grips with the real issues that we, as individuals, and as a species deal with in seemingly never ending cycles. For example, take this paragraph, from her book “The WIisdom of No Escape�.

“ There’s a common misunderstanding among all the human beings who have ever been born on the earth that the best way to live is to try to avoid pain and just try to get comfortable. You can see this even in insects, animals and birds. All of us are the same. A much more interesting, kind, adventurous and joyful approach to life is to begin to develop our curiosity, not caring whether the object of our inquisitiveness is bitter or sweet. To lead a life that goes beyond pettiness and prejudice and always wanting to make sure that everything turns out on our own terms. To lead a

more passionate, full and delightful life than that, we must realize that we can endure a lot of pain and pleasure for the sake of finding out who we are and what this world is, how we tick and how the world ticks, how the whole thing just is. If we are committed to comfort at any cost, as soon as we come up against the least edge of pain – we’re going to run: we’ll never know what’s beyond that particular barrier or wall or fearful thing.� In other words, turn to face your fears squarely, experience all that’s good, bad and indifferent and in so doing, those fears will no longer hold you back from experiencing your life to the fullest. Remember when you incarnated onto this planet, when you came to Earth , you came with a passport to pain; It’s the only explicit way we truly learn and gain insight. And yes, one can also learn through Joy and appreciation. The main thing is to experience.� And further on in another chapter, she says ;

“ Being satisfied with what we already have is a magical golden key to being alive in a full, unrestricted and inspired way. One of the major obstacles to what is traditionally called enlightenment is resentment, feeling cheated, holding a grudge about who you are, what you are. This is why we talk so much about making friends with ourselves, because, for some reason or other, we don’t feeel that kind of satisfaction in a full and complete way. Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have. Our wisdom is all mixed up with what we call our neurosis. Our brilliance, our juiciness, our spiciness, is all mixed up with our craziness and confusion and therefore it doesn’t do any good to try to get rid of our ‘negative’ aspects, because in the process we also get rid of our basic wonderfulness. We can lead our lives so as to become more

awake as to who we are and what we’re doing rather than try to improve, change or get rid of who we are and what we’re doing. The Key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive andcurious about ourselves. “ Personally, I couldn’t have said any of what Pema Chodron has expressed better. The wisdom of no escape is to face head on who, how and what we are, what we have; our circumstances that we in the BIG picture created – and embrace that. To work with it, with ourselves, and in that full on embrace we come into personal enlightenment; to knowing that instead of separation, we are indeed all ONE. And that realization empowers the whole earth, raises the vibration and frequency of earth’s energies and in this way, as a species we can bring the earth into its Golden Age.

Hi Tom, you have been playing it safe with your career for a long time now, you do have the ability to go it alone and run your own business The guides say for the offer which has been made to you has come from someone who has started their own business and is expanding rapidly. This person needs help and you are his number one choice for the job The guides advise to take this opportunity as in the near future you and this man become partners, and you will buy into this expanding business. Good luck Tom. My love, Cinzia đ&#x;’• Hi Cinzia, can you help me with my life everything seems stuck at the moment. Thank you. -Melanie Maylands

Dear Melanie, life seems to have stopped for you due to the passing of a loved one in your family. Could be a spouse, I feel you looked after this person.

It looks so promising and your hubby is really happy for you, truly feels fantastic money ... getting better ... things are looking up, life is looking up. My love, Cinzia đ&#x;’• Hi Cinzia can you tell me if my finances are going to improve this year? - Ramsey Brighton

Dear Ramsey, I do have a very strong feeling that finances will start improving after the middle of this year. I can see you in a business which is about to be sold, it’s a food related business, possibly a cafe. It does need to go as

you have another important job... your dear father who has passed away is talking to me and tells me life will improve but that past losses have got you down. He says what you need to do is get into action now - sell the business. He also tells me you will shift home and move near to water .You also will be looking at purchasing another small business nearer your new home . Yes dear Ramsey, finances are definitely picking up this year, also your positive energy. My love ,Cinzia đ&#x;’• Thank you Cinzia. You told me not to worry about my husband’s work as he had lost his job and was struggling and you told me to stop panicking and that very soon within a month or so he will be made an offer here in Adelaide which would mean we would not have to move from Adelaide and that I could keep my job and that my children could stay in school here. Thank you so much, my husband and I decided not to shift back to our country but to stay here and wait out your timeline and oh my god my husband has received this amazing offer - he has just started this AMAZING position that he is so qualified for with great pay!! We can’t believe how it has just worked out “word for wordâ€? as you have described. I thank you with all my heart and my husband thanks you. - Anna Beverley

Thank you dear Anna. I’m so happy for you guys. God bless you and your beautiful family. Love you, Cnzia đ&#x;‘źâ?¤ď¸?

Are You Resisting Your Radiant Heart? by Tanya Allison Have you been feeling very ‘weepy’ of late, unsure why you are feeling this gentle cleansing moving through your spirit? There is a very powerful surge of sacred Mother energy awakening and arising within us – all the cells in your body are bringing this nurture, this warmth,

this sensitivity, this sacred surge into existence…into your heart space; allowing this vulnerable vibration to permeate through every empowering pore of your sacred skin to slowly release the resistance to this love that longs to bring balance into your Being. For too long we have,

both male and female archetypes, moved with the masculine energy strong in our warrior spirits. This has served to save us from merely existing! It has enabled strong sun energy to guide us and support us through some very tough times….times that have called us to stand in our sovereign power and make new choices and creative decisions and perhaps to close many doors, to allow our direction to be more focused and hold more clarity and confirmation. This has aligned with the adrenalin needed to get you to this moment in time right now – knowing you have walked with wisdom and responsibility and empowered self-expression.

Nurture Your Radiant Heart

Now the nurture needs to reach your radiant heart; don’t resist the softening of your spirit, value your vulnerability at this time through your emotions… you are connected to the waters of the world; your prayers for peace, can charge and change the very planet that enables your platform for deep grace and gratitude, for the riches and abundance that settle into your space of sanctuary

now. The feminine energy feels like a flow, like a river of renewal that remembers you are whole and healed…that remembers you came with the wisdom within you to purposefully walk your wonderful, however that feels for you… that remembers you have an infinite capacity for care and compassion… Right now in your radiant heart you are growing and knowing that you are enough! That you have always been enough, that you have always felt connected to the Earth, to the soils, to the oceans and the winds of change….you are feeling your way into a new frequency – a flow that grows with grace on the inside….where happiness just happens. May all Soul Travellers surrender to this beautiful blessing… Tanya Allison is a guided meditation teacher, editor of the “Sage Magazine” and founding partner of “Soul Traveller R a d i o ” .

Dian Booth

Dian is a highly sought after international healer and author. In her recently published book “Healing through Sound, Colour and Movement – The ‘Anami’ Way” Dian discusses the history and philosophy of the vital importance of the three aspects of Creation, how these were used for healing at many levels in Ancient Cultures, and how widely they can be used in this present time.

(See In Brief Review this issue) Dian also offers workshops for healing at whatever level is required, in Melbourne and Alice Springs.

Together they create an important energetic healing triangle around the Earth. “Dian is not just working with Sound, she is weaving the living Sound of Creation into her work” – Tareth, Glastonbury UK. “A divine talent, in which she combines knowledge of the Earth, the human body and the subconscious mind’s ability to heal.

Through her determination, willingness to listen and respect for others; she creates new concepts, ideas and programs. “Starting a not-for-profit organisation from scratch may seem mad to some people; others say why would you do something that crazy; to me it is making a difference, as I see the rewards and impacts for community and our world when a young person sees their potential.” “Everyone has a unique code and the opportunity to tap into their potential. The more young people who find their code, it creates opportunities for those around them.” Can you imagine a world that fully supports this? Geraldine does. To find out more visit:

Sarah Watkins

Sarah is the owner/editor of Spiritual Events & Directory. “I’d like to share with you why I am so passionate about the spiritual industry. A few years ago, I went through a tough personal time separating from my partner. With two young children to care for, I yearned to have an online business, so I could combine work with being a single mum. I wanted some happiness, stability and financial independence. I came across Anthony Robbins, ‘Unleash the Power Within’ and listened on a regular basis. He inspired me to look further, so I went in search of other positive and spiritual websites. I attended a spiritualist church and loved it. This is where I embraced all things metaphysical. My aim, with the Directory, is to widely promote events, products and services of the best spiritual, transformational and selfhelp leaders from around the world, using a variety of online platforms and print media. In a short time, the Directory has grown to over 80,000 followers. I hope my journey inspires you to follow your own path.

Bernice Smith

I became interested in Access Consciousness®

when a friend ran my Bars® during a healing session. I no longer had head chatter, was more peaceful and calm and a lot lighter. I had never had a result like that after any other healing sessions so I registered for an Access Bars® class. My life before learning Access Bars® was one of perfectionism, stress, living my life from other people’s points of view, depression and a lot of unhappiness. Life just was not working for me. Access Bars® has changed my life. I have learnt to like myself, to be more of who I really am, to trust me more and to trust what I know to be right for me. My confidence has grown, and I actually laugh a lot more. I now have my own Bars® business. Clients are able to come to my home for a private Bars session, I go to fairs, markets and expos running Bars sessions and I am an Access Bars® Facilitator teaching the Bars® process. It is so rewarding for me to be living this change and to be to an invitation for others who are seeking change also. To book an Access Bars® session or to learn the Bars® process contact me at:

Anne-Louise is a Access Consciousness® Practitioner & Facilitator. When she first came across Access Consciousness® she knew this process would be life changing. “4 years ago, when I came across it again for the third time, I chose to learn and use the Access

tools for myself with no idea that I would be working with people, ‘Empowering them to know what they know!’ providing them with ways to become totally aware and begin to function as the conscious being they truly are. “Access Consciousness® is a different point of view about life. I invite you to come and learn how to change anything you cannot change and create everything you desire in a different and easier way with fun and laughter, where everything exists and nothing is judged. Are you ready to expand the level of choices and possibilities that are available to you? Life becomes an adventure of what would I like to choose? What would I like to create? How much fun can I have being alive? In my personal experience, no matter what your previous history, it is possible to change. Surprises are in store for you!” Anne-Louise offers one on one Access Bars®, Access Energetic Facelift® and Access Body Process sessions and Run Access Bars® and Access Energetic Facelift® Classes.

Brigid Neylan

Brigid discovered Access Consciousness early 2012

after seeing Dr Dain Heer on local television. She knew instantly that this was for her and did the basic classes within a few weeks. “My life changed. I had suffered depression and anxiety since I was in my teens. After using the tools, I was able to stop taking anti-anxiety and depression medication and have not required it since. I started taking back my life. One of the joys I discovered was that life is about possibilities and creation not limitation and contraction.” The true potency of using the access tools and body processes has been in allowing one to let go of points of view that have been limiting themselves and their body, preventing people to live the life they desire. “It has been a surprising, scary and heartening ride to start to know – really know – that I am the creator of my life and living. This change means I can now choose for me and not out of my history, fears - the ‘shoulds’, you must or survival patterns. I now actively choose for ease, joy and glory. I ask ‘will this bring me joy and ease’.” Brigid has offered a range of modalities since 1998 and is available for sessions both in person and online, introductory talks and offers several classes in Access Consciousness and Kinesiology.

Eye on the Sky with Gerry Crow

Astrologer, Clairvoyant Medium, Healer and Teacher

Astrology May - July 2017

In the first week of May, Mercury goes direct in Aries offering us clearer outward thinking, however being accompanied by Uranus civil debates could excalate into sudden rage and intense argument. Therefore be mindful of your emotional levels in order to prevent a lot of huff and puff that could be hurtful to self and others, especially if you are a fire sign in late degrees, or Sun in Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, as this transit could have you on edge. To avoid these hot spots be very clear positively on your intentions and mind sets. The Full Moon rises in Scorpio (20 degrees) on the 11th May at 7.45am Sydney time. This mystical Full Moon brings in the opportunity for you to connect very deeply with your psychic levels and spiritual guidance and can enable any meditation practice to expand beyond your usual parameters. If you celebrate the lunar cycles the Scorpio Full Moon is a powerful time to focus on psychological, past lives and soul healing. As well our beloved Venus has begun to move swiftly through the sign of Aries, boosting your self-confidence, courage and reigniting your passion for your path ahead. She connects on the 19th May with Jupiter in opposition, expanding your desire to indulge and treat yourself; do allow yourself to receive and be nourished. You may also have a calling to visit loved ones, friends and kick up your heels a bit, whatever you do still keep you eyes on the budget as there is no point in having a delightful time, to find later in the month you actually extended your credit card debt too much. Venus transits (7/6) into her ruling sign Taurus ushering us to 'bungalow' down as winter approaches. She encourages nurturing with hot chocolate, walks in the winter sun and getting out the stock pot for nourishing soups and stews to be made. On the same day Mercury has moved into Gemini, giving permission to enjoy light entertainment, with movies, whether at the cinema or on Netflix, the internet or even get out our old favourite books, you know reading and turning the pages! The June (9/6 11.09pm SYD) Full Moon is in Sagittarius (18

degrees). Under this fire lunation, you may feel influenced to have a mid year party, or find yourself interested in a new path of learning. Then again you may feel a strong pull to book yourself a holiday and fly off to a warmer, more exotic place than you have travelled to before. In addition Jupiter the ruler of Sagittarius goes direct on the 10/6, expanding your horizons in your personal relationships, extended family, community and globally. Having you question what is your part within world change and bringing in Global justice and peace. The Wheel of the Year turns on the 21st June, reining in the Winter Solstice, the longest night, and allows the spark of your internal consciousness to return. Celebrate all that you have changed, healed and transformed. Let go of all that has died, release it to the Great spirit, God/Goddess, the Universe, simply be and step forward and be in your new light. The Capricorn Full Moon brings in further enlightenment as she ascends, conjunct Pluto and square Jupiter, into the sky on July the 9th, (SYD 2.08pm). Illuminating, deepening and expanding your visions, emotions and dreams. While this moon will feel very intense you can also harness and integrate the energy to take your power, connect with the celestial beings and vision to manifest your true path forward. Therefore be sure to take some time on this day to meditate, and practise your way in sacred ceremony. During July we deal with several planets being retrograde. When planets are seemingly going backwards in the skies, you are required to be introspective. To work positively with Saturn being retrograde a good protocol to follow is to examine your personal set of rules, look at what motivates you emotionally especially in the areas of control and fear. You could explore your ‘failures’, where you feel disappointment and learn how you can behave differently. Then apply this knowledge into your new life. Neptune retrograde is more reflective of your sensitivity to the energies from others, and all that is unseen in the world. If you are naturally very psychic, sensitive or know you are an

InnerSelf empath then extra care in the psychic, spiritual, psychological and emotional boundaries are a must. The practice of being clear, grounded and knowing your limitations is essential for you to survive Neptune retrograde and allow your gifts to flow in a centred way. For others who are not so sensitive, Neptune retrograde could possibly have you experience the more mystical, spiritual side of life and open your mind to different paths. Still caution and protection is needed. Others may experience their addictive patterns coming to the fore and be encouraged to face these patterns for a more fulfilling and conscious life. Pluto has been on its current retrograde path since April 21st, and will go direct on September 29. Pluto is the one planet (yes I know he’s been demoted, however the energy in my experience is still there alive and well!) that people get uncomfortable about, however you need not be. Pluto brings to your attention what it is, you need to face about your shadow behaviours, in order for you to be truly empowered and successful in all areas of your life. Begin by being watchful within any authoritative situations: do you feel controlled or do you do the controlling? Look to your anger; can you express it healthily or do you play victim or persecutor? Pluto rules sexuality are you being fulfilled in this area of your life? Pluto also rules other people's money, and we all know that in our western society money is a controlling force from the boardroom to the bedroom. How do you operate within these levels of power and control? Wherever you find the shadows lurking within, bring them to awareness, and love and accept them, yes love and acceptance are the first steps towards taking responsibility and to change unsavoury behaviour patterns into a healthy patterns, where you will then find yourself in a more positive flow of life. Taking the above mentioned actions while planets are retrograde, will have you prepared for your change and transformation, at the time the planets move direct. This will mean that you will no longer be tripping over the past, instead you will be totally aware in the present living your life to the fullest.
