Change Yourself - Change the World

An Interview with Don Miguel Ruiz The author of The Four Agreements reflects on what it takes to change the world―and yourself. Q: So, how do we change the world?

A: Changing the world is not about changing the secondary characters of your story. If you want to change the world, the way you do it is by changing the main character of your story. Then, just like magic, all the secondary characters will start changing. Your children will change because the message that you deliver to them will change. The message that you deliver to your wife, to your husband, will change. Your relationship with your friends will change. Perhaps more importantly, your relationship with yourself will change. When you change the message you deliver to yourself, you are happier― and just by being happier, the people who live around you also benefit. Your effort is really for everyone because your joy is contagious. When you are happy, the people around you are happy, too, and it inspires them to change their own world.

Q: So is that our big responsibility? Just to be happy?

A: You just exist, and you are here to enjoy life, and whatever you do, you are doing it because this is what you love to do, and that makes a big difference. We all come here with the same mission, and it is to be happy, to enjoy life. How we do it is seven billion different ways. One for

every single human. Only you know what is going to make you happy and what won’t make you happy. Respect is part of what makes you happy. I am speaking for all humans. Our legacy is love, is joy, is happiness. Let’s enjoy this world. Let’s enjoy one another. We are meant to love one another, not to hate one another. Let’s stop believing that our differences make us superior or inferior to one another. Q: And how do we get more and more people to be part of the solution?

A: Awareness. We need to be aware.

Q: From The Fifth Agreement: “Once you recover awareness, you become completely responsible for your own evolution, for every choice you make in life.” So it’s the essence of your teachings that awareness makes us ultimately responsible for everything in our lives.

A: Well, the truth is that everybody’s really responsible [for themselves] even if they don’t want to be responsible. We can try to avoid responsibility, but there is no way. Only you can live your life. Nobody else can live your life. Sometimes we want to be responsible for somebody else and make decisions for them, but that is not our responsibility.

Q: So someone having trouble

Know Thyself as Soul

You are a soul of a permanent unchangeable nature, and if you would live as a soul, you would never be affected or changed by outer changes. -Sant Baljit Singh

. . . How do they reach that awareness, to be able to say, “Let’s surrender”?

Nurture your spiritual life through meditation on the inner Light and Sound and realise your true self. All events are free.

A: OK, they have to understand that it is practice that makes them master.

For further information:

1800 462 193

Q: Aren’t our habits, when we are not being aware, a kind of practice, too?

A: Yes―because, as you practice hate, as you practice anger, as you practice jealousy, that becomes automatic. But when you have awareness and practice being impeccable with your word―using the power of your words for love or truth― perhaps you don’t like to feel hate anymore, you don’t want to feel jealous anymore. You start changing it. And an easy way is by using these agreements.

Q: We often say we’re interested in transformation but we don’t want to transform―we want everybody to transform around us.

A: It will happen with or without us. Everything is changing all the time. Many times we are not aware of our own transformation because our attention is focused on the outside and we can see how everything around us is being transformed. But if we focus on ourselves, we can see our own transformation.

Q: You think we don’t notice this because . . .

A: Because we are living it. Because we are changing with all the changes. With awareness,

DON MIGUEL RUIZ we can facilitate and change as fast as everything changing. This is the main problem of humanity―that we resist the transformation. We don’t want to let go. We carry our past with us, and it is very heavy―like carrying a corpse. Like my son Jose says, “When the snake sheds his skin, he just lets go.” That’s what we should do with our past. You don’t want to let go of the great moments of your life. But soon or later, they will go, and it will be fine. Don Miguel Ruiz is a renowned spiritual teacher and internationally bestselling author of the “Toltec Wisdom Series,” including “The Four Agreements,” “The Mastery of Love,” “The Voice of Knowledge,” “The Four Agreements Companion Book,” “The Circle of Fire,” and “The Fifth Agreement.” The Toltec Wisdom books have sold over 10 million copies in the United States, and have been published in 40 languages worldwide.

InnerSelf

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.

EXPLORING INNER SPACE

Going within is a wonderful and exciting journey. It’s thrilling, ecstatic, blissful and can at times be as turbulent as white water rafting and at others as deeply peaceful as floating in a clear, still ocean. This is the world I’ve explored for over thirty years or so. Like my friend who is an astronomer at a major Australian observatory, and has spent all his life exploring outer space, I find exploring the infinite richness of inner space absolutely fascinating.

The deepening levels Your inner world is as vast as the universe. As you go within you will find deeper and deeper levels of experience which open up the world of inner space and consciousness. The meditation tradition has explored this inner world in the same way that our culture has explored the outer world. It has produced detailed maps of this world and a description of exactly how many levels of deeper experience there are and what happens when you reach them. There are eight distinct levels of inner experience and we shall explore the first four. Meditation itself is the tool for going within. It provides a way of reaching these inner levels of experience and of knowing exactly where you are and what is happening. What makes meditation unique when you learn to use it well is that you are always conscious of what you are doing. Even though you go deeper and deeper into your inner world you are in control and can choose how far to go at any particular time. Your best thinking One of the main misunderstandings about meditation is the belief that you shouldn’t be thinking when you are meditating. However, at the first level you are thinking. This means that you can be in touch with your inner

world and the outer world at the same time. Whenever you are concentrating this is where you ‘enter the zone’ and your work flows effortlessly. This level can be integrated easily into your everyday life, and it provides the optimal conditions for achieving your best work and your best and most creative thinking. Here is the place where you can see options and possibilities which would never usually occur to you, and change the habits and states of mind which tend to bog you down. This is the level at which I work with my clients, teaching them how to use spot meditations which they can apply immediately at work, home or wherever they want. You touch base and can balance yourself whenever you want. It’s where you feel you have “come home” because it puts you in touch with your senses and your body. Dreams and symbols The second level is where you go beyond thinking. Your thinking stops and the whole world of colours, images, symbols and sounds – that rich, inner world of the subconscious life and the dream life – opens up. This is the world in which artists and musicians live. It’s the world which the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called “the collective subconscious” because it is shared by every human being, no matter what race or culture they come from. At this level you can open up to that wonderful feeling of union with your inner being and with the world around you. It can lead to a feeling of joy and even ecstasy as you enter, fully conscious, the world you normally only inhabit when you are dreaming. Resting in the senses At the third level your body is so relaxed that it has virtually gone to sleep, but your mind is

still awake. There is no mental activity at all and all you are aware of is your sense experience. This is an extraordinarily strange experience at first because you have no sense of the boundaries of your body – it can feel as though it has disappeared – and you cannot move. Your body can feel so heavy that it feels glued to the chair or the floor. Complete stillness At the fourth level you experience the deepest sense of stillness it is possible to experience. It’s the point of deep inner peace – utterly and completely still, mentally, emotionally and physically. It is a place where the mind and body are freed from all input and so can take the opportunity to heal themselves. And this is just the beginning. In a sense, compared with astronomy, these are the levels equivalent to exploring home base, our planet earth. Beyond them you move into the equivalent of deep space – the cosmos beyond our own planet and galaxy. The universe of inner space and the experience of consciousness itself, beyond your normal sensory experience, opens up step by step as you move through the other levels. It’s a journey available to everyone, once you have received the guidance to master the skill of meditation and have got to know the territory. 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 lifeflow.com.au

The courage to be what we are Like looking for the glasses perched on top of our head or the car keys in our pockets, we have a hard time discovering our true self because it’s hiding inside us. It is us. Our brain is like a telephone switchboard with every wire plugged into a set of beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. If we are a spiritual seeker, one of those wires goes straight into a bundle called “spiritual enlightenment” along with things like “fireworks” “ eternal bliss” etc. In our journey to spiritual enlightenment, as we re-examine our thoughts, beliefs and expectations, we may start to question

the usefulness of some of these connections and we may start pulling out a plug here and there (or we jerk a bunch of them with wild abandon) and try to re-plug them somewhere else. But we need to pull the plug and resist the temptation to replug it with what we’d rather believe in. Unplugging all the wires, is what getting ready to cross the Gateless Gate is all about. Without wire support, concepts, beliefs and illusions quietly turn to dust and what they previously hid is then revealed. Who Am I? Contemplate the thought, “Who am I?” and really examine what that “I” is referring to. Who is that “I”? We live our whole life focusing on all the stuff happening to the entity we believe ourselves to be without ever stopping to ask the obvious questions, “Is that me? Is that entity who I truly am?” By the word “me” I am not referring to your thought/feelings but to the deep beingness that has been with us since we were children, that has never left us, no matter what has happened on the surface of our life. When we ask ourselves the question “Who am I?” we immediately notice a vast space of not knowing. Stop there. Go no further. Allow the answer to reveal itself. If we just continue to pursue the question rather than paying attention to what is actually there, thoughts and ideas will continue to flood in to try to fill that unknowingness. The mind seeks always to fill in the space with ideas, concepts,

US TO A NEW AWARENESS OF OURSELVES.”

Lama Surya Das, Author of Awakening the Buddha Within This practical guide to accessing an awakened state in everyday life draws on Enza Vita's own profound encounter with enlightenment. Written for anyone who has ever set out on a spiritual path, it reveals the astounding truth about awakening: what we are looking for is here now and has always been. She explains the meaning of real meditation, which lies in letting go of control rather than in seeking to control the experience, and offers Presence Pause exercises as well as many hints and tips for letting your thoughts be and accessing true awareness. This book shows that it really is possible to escape from the suffering created by our thoughts and emotions, and that enlightenment is not an unreachable ideal but attainable in our ordinary lives.

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 Vita is the publisher and editor of InnerSelf newspaper and website, and the founder and director of the MahaShanti Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to spiritual awakening. She has distilled over 40 years of spiritual exploration into a modern, practical and authentic spirituality that engages with the universal teaching underlying all religions. www.enzavita.com

and imaginings but we can never find the answer in the realm of the mind because our true self is not a concept but that which contains all concepts. As we gain experience with this, we stop rushing to fill the gap. We will no longer try to fill the space and the mind becomes clearer, and like a still lake allowing the reflection of the moon to be seen, it allows us to actually directly realize the presence/ awareness that is the ground of our being, the place where happiness, fulfilment, and meaning are found. We then realize by direct experience, not intellectual knowing, that it’s not really about a separate entity becoming enlightened; it’s about rediscovering our already enlightened presence right here and now. All we are looking for is awareness, and we are already that. It is awareness that is reading these words. Pure presence/ awareness is shining through our eyes right now and hearing through our ears right now. Realization is not about you, the wave, realizing it is the ocean. The ocean realizes itself in you and reveals itself to have never been just a wave. Nothing changes except the falling away of a false belief.

Some people feel that they have to have a big bang enlightenment for it to be real; one second you are normal, and then suddenly it is like we walk through a gate and are awakened never to walk back through that gate again. These people are always looking for that door and are obsessed with gurus and holy men past and present who claim to have found the door and crossed through it. We want to know their story, how they did it, and what we have to do for this same wonderful thing to happen to us. Thinking that something has to happen for us to become enlightened keeps our mind on the lookout for that one more lifechanging experience or event, one more confirmation, one more reason to stay in the drama of a limited, separate, un-enlightened self that needs to get something in order to be whole once again.

The Inner Journey of Transformation on the Spiritual Path

By Enzo Fardone , author As with most of us I have been on the spiritual path for many years, even if at times the sense

of direction is lost . It is then that the personal ego tries to divert your attention . Spirituality means above all else to be altruistic and idealistic. It is always a struggle to attain to such high ideals, therefore, spiritual practices become necessary, otherwise we will continue to remain attached to our weaknesses: egoism, anger, greed, selfishness, jealously, craving and so on. The Path leads to enlightenment, peace, freedom, and universal empathy with all humanity. If we make a mistake on the way all we can do is correct it, put it behind us and continue on the way. We are answerable only to ourselves for our spiritual progress. I will be speaking on the Western Mystery(esoteric) Tradition from the Egyptian, Greek and Gnostic mystery schools and Eastern spirituality; answers to “Who am I?” “Why am here?” “Where am I going?”. The Higher Self contains within the many personalities from the past. This is the Soul´s Journey through many lifetimes to gain experiences. Ultimately Truth can only be discovered within oneself. “Not I , nor anybody else can travel that road for you. You must travel it yourself.”- Walt Whitman The Inner Journey of Transformation Talks 20 AUGUST: Ultimate Reality in the Light of Science and Spirituality 10 SEPTEMBER Worlds Within Worlds: Multidimensional Consciousness : 24 SEPTEMBER Spiritual Path to Enlightenment 1 OCTOBER Astral Projection- the Out of Body Experience 29 OCTOBER Cosmic Consciousness and Mysticism 5 NOVEMBER The Seven Revelations of the Holy Graill 26 NOVEMBER The Ancient and Modern Mysteries of Initiation 10 DECEMBER The Soul’s Journey in Myth, Literature and Shakespeare All talks will be held at the Meeting Hall at 393 Payneham Road, Marden on Sundays from 2pm to 4pm. Entry by donation. A complimentary book of the author “The Poussin Enigma” will be given to all attendees.

PSYCH-K® is such a simple way to get your life travelling in the direction you want it to! It’s used as a key for you to unlock the subconsciously held beliefs that you’ve accumulated from birth to now. Some of these beliefs are good…Great even! And some may have served their purpose and are now limiting you in some areas of your life. The easiest way of seeing if you are subconsciously limiting yourself is to look at all the areas of your life. Are you satisfied with how things are going? Or are there stressful or frustrating areas that you’d like to change

as easily and effectively as possible? Once you’ve identified areas you’d like to improve, or goals you’d like to reach in as enjoyable way as possible, you can use PSYCH-K® to align your beliefs to the direction you are wanting to be heading in. It really is as simple as that. Become a Facilitator for yourself and others!

Transmission Meditation Workshop

PSYCHIC MEDIUM FRAN TOMLIN

Transmission Meditation is a form of group meditation for the purpose of 'stepping down' (transforming) spiritual energies which thus become accessible and useful to the general public. It is the creation, in co-operation with the Hierarchy of Masters, of a vortex or pool of higher energy for the benefit of humanity. This is a form of service which is simple to do and is at the same time a powerful means of personal growth. It is safe, scientific, non-denominational, and extremely potent and will not interfere with any other religious or spiritual practice. Video presentation, Q & A, plus Meditation Venue: Adelaide Theosophical Society Hall Date: 29th October 2017 Time: 2.00pm-4.30pm Admission: Free For more information please contact Antonio Mobile: 0428592209 Email: info@shareinternational.org.au

CRYSTAL HEALING AT THE WHOLE LIFE EXPO 2017 Stone-Cold Facts about Gemstone Treatments Crystal healing is based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of life-energy (chi or qi) and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras, which are vortices of this life-energy, said to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body. The history of this practice is ancient, dating back at least 6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Ancient Egyptians are also referenced on such sites as being among the first people to have adorned themselves with crystals — including lapis lazuli, carnelian and turquoise — to ward off illness and negative energy. Crystal healing also involves the use of crystals and stones worn on the body or placed under pillows to ward off sickness, shed negative energy or absorb positive energy. At the WHOLE LIFE EXPO this year you will be able to try Crystal healiing and also buy from crystal companies that sell such crystals, sometimes referred to as “talismans” or “amulets.”

Come enjoy Ester Zazzaro’s FREE workshop for women, “The Heart of Woman’s Womb” and discover the truths of tantra at this year’s WHOLE LIFE EXPO!… Ester can help you to deepen the connection between you and your loved one, facilitate enhanced relaxation in many areas, and offer self-awareness of your body through massage and meditation.

Presented by Adishakti, the only practitioner of Donna Eden Energy Medicine & Breathwalk in SA, Energy Medicine is a truly powerful approach that puts your health, vitality and wellbeing literally in your own hands. Drawing from nine primary and interrelated energy systems— Meridians, Chakras, Aura, Radiant Circuits, Triple Warmer, Celtic Weave, Five Rhythms, Electrics and Basic Grid—Donna Eden, the most respected energy medicine teacher on the planet, developed a wide variety of daily techniques and protocols that can rebalance your energies, improve inner and outer harmony, help cure ‘dis-ease’ and bring more joy into your life. It is based on the understanding that any physical, mental or behavioural problem has a counterpart in the body’s energies and can be treated at that level. The beauty of Energy Medicine is that it can complement Western medical therapies. Every conceivable health problem, psychological challenge or dysfunctional habit can be improved, if not overcome, by intelligently shifting the energies in the body that are maintaining that condition.

EEM is an integrated approach that builds upon insights from acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, therapeutic tai chi, yoga and other alternative healing modalities to: •Lessen aches, pains, illness and disease •Create deeper happiness, satisfaction and contentment •Increase focus, clarity and productivity •Renew balance, harmony and wellbeing •Improve overall health and longevity

This empowers, activates and awakens the cellular memory of the person, raising them back to higher consciousness and an awakened state of being.

YOUR SPIRIT GUIDES How to Find & Connect with Them

Spirit guides are incorporeal beings that are assigned to us before we are born that help nudge and guide us through life. They’re responsible for helping us fulfill the spiritual contract we make with ourselves before we incarnate. HOW DO YOU CONNECT WITH YOUR GUIDES DIRECTLY? Wouldn’t it be great if your guides could just call you on the phone and tell you what’s coming in your future, or tell you to look out for a guy named Joe, or that your child needs you and you should get to them right away? For some people that’s quite nearly how it works. It just takes time and practice to be able to hear, see, or feel your guides. Matthew Greenwood is a Shaman, Spiritual Counsellour and Energy Healer who can help you connect with your Spirit Guides. As well as being able to see spiritual guides who are here for our highest growth, Matthew also has the ability to see negative entities that sometimes link in with fears and anxieties within us, hampering our growth. Not only does he help to clear those negative energies, but he teaches practitioners and those who are interested how to do the same.

UNCLE MOOGY, a Ngarrindjeri Elder and Medicine Man, will take us on a Journey of Ceremony, Stories Dance and Song and discuss the Traditional Ways of the Ngarrindjeri People and the importance of our connection to the land. In 2010 Australia was facing the worst drought in recorded history. At the end of the river in the Coorong, Ngarrindjeri Elder Uncle Moogy grew tired of watching his ancestral home die, and so united a group of different Aboriginal River Nations in a 2300-kilometre pilgrimage to dance the spirit back into the river and into themselves. By the time they had finished the drought had broken and what followed was the wettest season in living memory with floods throughout the basin. Although his work in this field has been given little recognition in Australia, Uncle Moogy has earned great respect from other martial arts masters from around the world a as the Grand Master of Traditional Australian Native Martial Arts. ANGELENA KAURNA NGADJURI HARRADINE, an Aboriginal Elder of the Kaurna people. In Aboriginal culture the women are powerful with the knowledge they hold within the Aboriginal society. Angelena will present a special WOMEN SPIRITUALITY Workshop (open to women only) and a TRADITIONAL WAYS OF THE ABORIGINES workshop (open to men & women) exploring spirituality, healing methods, bush tucker and much more.

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

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.

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.

Hormonal Flux – Coping with Peri-Menopause

Peri-menopause is the timeframe leading up to cessation of the menstrual cycle or menopause. It is a time of hormonal fluctuation that can lead to a whole array of distressing symptoms including erratic and often heavy if not flooding periods. Emotionally peri-menopause can feel like “PMT all month” due to the changing hormonal milieu. The key phrase is erratic – cycles, hormones, emotions and physical symptoms including breast tenderness and pelvic congestion. And to make matters worse peri-menopause can last up to ten years before actual menopause arrives! The underlying mechanism for many of these symptoms is irregular ovulation due to ageing unresponsive ovaries. The failure to ovulate regularly leads to imbalance in the estrogen/ progesterone ratios – a term we call “estrogen dominance”. If the eggs are unresponsive or the body fails to produce adequate progesterone after ovulation then

there is relatively high estrogen to progesterone. This leads to a thickening endometrial lining (estrogen effect) that is not adequately stabilised (lack of progesterone effect). This unstable uterine lining eventually comes away in an uncoordinated fashion leading to flooding, clots and just plain misery. Periods may be much heavier than usual and often frequent as well leading to iron deficiency anemia and exhaustion. As sex hormones interplay with our brain neurotransmitters moods can be all over the place as a result of hormone imbalances. Other symptoms that are associated include breast tenderness, headaches & migraines & sleep disturbances. Women may feel anything from very emotionally vulnerable to downright aggressive – and the emotional state can bounce around. One may wonder “who is this person” when looking in the mirror!! Furthermore as the situation continues the stress coping capacity

is challenged. With instability in the sex hormones the adrenals (the organs that make stress coping hormones) are heavily relied upon. Ones tolerance to stress weakens further compounding the systemic imbalance. In order to support the perimenopause it is important to try to balance the hormonal milieu. As it is fundamentally an “estrogen dominant” situation we try to achieve 2 major goals: clear estrogens and raise progesterone. Estrogen clearance is particularly important because not only do we make estrogen in our body we are also living in an estrogenic soup. Household chemicals, additives, preservatives, garden sprays, plastics, cosmetics, and many other chemicals are estrogen mimickers. Limiting our exposure to these is essential to diminish our estrogen load. In addition we need to specifically support our estrogen clearance organs: our liver and gut.

Dietary approaches promote optimal estrogen clearance by the liver include a diet high in cruciferous vegies such as broccoli, cabbages, kale and Brussels sprouts. The active nutrients (Indole – 3- carbinol for example) in these foods are often recommended in supplement form. Citrus contain a substance called d-limonene which promotes detoxification of estrogen. Additional nutrients that can help are EPA fish oils, B vitamins (especially B6, B12 and folic acid), Vitamin E and magnesium. Many herbs support liver detoxification pathways including Rosemary, Turmeric, Andrographis and St Mary’s Thistle. Estrogen can be “bound” by something called sex hormone binding globulin. This essentially takes it “out of action”. Increasing fibre in the diet, specifically fibre containing something called lignans increases the binding. Flaxseed meal is one of the best sources of these lignans, but must be freshly ground as it goes

rancid very, very quickly. Flaxseed oil is not as useful for this purpose. It is crucial to clear estrogen not only from the liver effectively but also from the bowel. Maximising your gut health through herbal medicines, probiotics and prebiotics and other treatments can help lower the numbers of “bad bugs” involved in estrogen reabsorption. Foods to include in your diet include fermented foods such as kefir for naturally occurring probiotics and high glucarate foods including apples, broccoli, spinach and Brussel sprouts. Also increase your intake of insoluble fibre such as whole grains (oatmeal, brown rice, barley), oat bran, nuts & seeds (including quinoa), peas, beans, lentils, and berries. These fibres help bind estrogen and aid its removal from the gut. Finally it is necessary to try to raise progesterone. I am not an advocate of using synthetic progesterone (even Bio-identical is synthetic) however; there are herbal approaches that are very useful. The traditional Western herb used is Chaste Tree. It works in the brain to raise LH – the hormone that induces ovulation. This herb on its own can reduce many symptoms related to peri-menopause. However there are many other progestagenic herbs that can be used – examples would be Cramp Bark and Pasque Flower. General sex hormone balancers such as Ladies Mantle or Shatavari are also useful. The idea is to induce a robust ovulation so the body naturally produces adequate pro-

gesterone to balance estrogen.

InnerSelf anxious until we gobble a square of dark chocolate or a T-bone steak. Fortunately, we can begin to take control by feeding our microbiome the right foods. “I tell my patients, ‘The bacteria follow the food,’” says gastroenterologist Robynne Chutkan, MD, and author of Gutbliss. “What we eat dictates the kind of bacteria we grow in our gut garden.” This is big news: There are trillions of microbes in your belly that will—if you feed them well— help you fight flab and win.

Your Gut - The Secret to Health & Weight Loss

Looking to lose some extra kilos? Here’s a hint: Work those good bacteria.

BY PAT AVIVA Consider this: Right now, as you’re sitting there, there’s a battle raging in your belly. Some 1,000 species of bacteria are duking it out, trying to establish dominance. Why should you care? Because whether the good bacteria in your gut or the bad triumph doesn’t just decide how well you digest your dinner, respond to allergens and fend off diseases - it also helps determine how much weight you’re likely to gain. Or lose. “Simply put, if you get the microbiome - that collection of bacteria inside you - healthy, you will

lose weight,” says Raphael Kellman, MD, author of The Microbiome Diet. “It’s less about eating a certain percentage of carbohydrates, protein and fat than about correcting the overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria, which is making you crave the wrong foods, triggering inflammation.” A flurry of ground-breaking findings are helping to connect the dots about how our gut bacteria may shape our, well, shape. In a study in the British Journal of Nutrition, obese women who took a probiotic supplement (of the bacteria Lactobacillus rham-

nosus) lost twice as much weight and fat over about six months - and were better at keeping it off - as those who took a placebo. Probiotics may have helped by controlling the women’s appetites, which seem to have waned as their microbiomes changed. Unhealthy gut bacteria also produce food cravings: A study published in BioEssays suggests that some microbes may drive us to eat doughnuts or another tempting treat. These gut bugs send chemical messages to the brain that sway our appetite and mood - perhaps making us feel

GUT CHECK #1: GET YOUR TWO P’S Basically, it all begins with probiotics and prebiotics, components of food believed to play an important role in improving gut health. Probiotics are a type of good bacteria, similar to the ones that already reside in your gut. Ingesting these organisms aids digestion and helps change and repopulate intestinal bacteria to balance what doctors refer to as “gut flora.” Prebiotics are plant-fiber compounds, also found in food, that pass undigested through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and help stimulate the growth of good bacteria. When pre- and probiotics are combined, they become an intestinal power couple (or, in blunter terms, they kick nutritional butt). GUT CHECK #2: GO LIVE Fermented foods deliver pro-

biotics directly to the gut. A cup of yogurt a day? It’s a nice start. Look for products that say “live and active cultures” on the label, and be careful when it comes to fruit-infused flavours: Some are loaded with sugar, which can feed bad bugs, so be sure to check the ingredients and aim for fewer than 15 grams per serving. For even more probiotics, try Greek yogurt or kefir, a tangy dairy drink that’s packed with good bugs. GUT CHECK #3: DOWN SOME FIBRE It does more than fill you up: Research shows that foods that are high in fibre help promote the growth of friendly bacteria. Several studies have shown that, people who ate high-fibre snack bars experienced a growth of anti-inflammatory bacteria in their bellies. GUT CHECK #4: MIX UP YOUR MENU Eat an assortment of foods to encourage a more varied metropolis in your belly. Recent studies suggest that the intestines of lean people look more like bustling cities than sleepy towns. (Translation: They’re densely populated and diverse.) One study showed that individuals who had a healthy weight, body mass index, waist circumference and blood sugar level were more apt to have high levels of three different types of bacteria—Firmicutes, Bifidobacteria and Clostridium

leptum. What’s more, in a pair of French studies, people with diverse gut microbiomes were less likely to be obese or at risk of diabetes. Plus, their intestinal ecosystems were home to fewer pro-inflammatory bacteria. It’s easy to change up your meals: If you had salad with grilled chicken yesterday, for example, go with fish or a tofu stir-fry today. GUT CHECK #5: SKIP BAD-NEWS FOODS What you don’t eat is every bit as crucial as what you do add to your diet. Keep your gut flora fit by cutting back on these offenders. REFINED CARBS Fatty and sugary foods not only tend to lack fiber—which is ideal food for the microbiome— but can also cause bad bacteria to thrive. And let’s face it: If you’re eating that bag of potato chips, chances are you’re not munching on celery sticks, blueberries and other gut-friendly eats. ANIMAL PROTEIN A diet heavy in fat and protein (such as meat and cheese) feeds a type of bacteria, Bilophilia, that has been linked to inflammation. Lawrence David, PhD, professor at Duke University’s Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy, saw the levels of this bacteria shoot up in study participants eating red meat, but not in those eating squash and lentils. Dr. Kellman suggests limiting red meat to once a week. It’s smart for your heart—and hips!

THE ALCHEMY OF MIND BODY AND SOUND MIRANDA MUNRO

“Everything in life is vibration” - Einstein

Are You Eating the Right Sorts of Fibre? JESSICA MAYLAND Six out of ten Australians don’t eat enough fibre, and even more don’t get the right combination of fibres. Eating dietary fibre - food components (mostly derived from plants) that resist human digestive enzymes - is associated with improved digestive health. High fibre intakes have also been linked to reduced risk of several serious chronic diseases, including bowel cancer. In Australia, we have a fibre paradox: even though our average fibre consumption has increased over the last 20 years and is much higher than in the United States and the United Kingdom, our bowel cancer rates haven’t dropped. This is probably because we’re eating a lot of insoluble fibre (also known as roughage) rather than a combination of fibres that includes fermentable fibres, which are important for gut health. awakening

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FIBRE Eating a combination of different fibres addresses different health needs. The NHMRC recommends adults eat between 25 and 30 grams of dietary fibre each day. For convenience, dietary fibre can be broadly divided into types: • Insoluble fibres or roughage promote regular bowel movements. Sources of insoluble fibre include wheat bran and highfibre cereals, brown rice, and wholemeal breads. • Soluble fibres slow digestion, lower plasma cholesterol levels, and even out glucose uptake to the blood. Sources of soluble fibre include oats, barley, fruits, and vegetables. • Resistant starches contribute community to health by feeding one at a good time

bacteria in the large bowel, which improves its function and reduces risk of disease. Sources of resistant starch include legumes (lentils and beans), cold cooked potatoes or pasta, firm bananas, and whole grains.

.

INCLUDE A VARIETY OF FIBRES IN YOUR DIET Getting enough fibre is important, but getting a combination of fibre is imperative for good digestive health. Most people know that eating insoluble fibre improves regular bowel movements, but the benefits of soluble fibre in slowing glucose release and resistant starch in promoting beneficial bacteria are less well known. Including a variety of fibres in your diet will ensure you get the health .benefits . of all of them.

You finally make it home frazzled, tired and in a state sensory overload, perhaps without even recognising it. Your day has been an onslaught of clatter and chatter, bathing you in a constant soup of noise, a barrage of vibrations. Then the drive home is accompanied by a cacophony of beeping and belching traffic, periodically broken by the knife of a siren slicing through the air. The assault of unhealthy vibrations probably doesn't let up until you are peacefully tucked up in bed. Before which there is the TV, the phone, the screaming kids and the neighbour’s dog. We live in an ocean of vibration whether it is harmful or good for us, it exists none the less. Einstein was quoted as stating “everything in life is vibration” Considering this we can hardly escape it. Moving to the quiet of isolation surrounded by the peace of nature is not a practical option for most of us, nor are there many places that are free from this sonic pollution. Understanding the nature of vibration is a good starting place. Quantum physics states that everything in the universe is energy, and on the sub atomic level there is no matter, just pure energy. Nothing rests; everything is in a constant state of movement and vibration. Although something looks and feels solid to us it is in fact millions of subatomic particles rapidly moving. How does this have any bearing on our daily lives? The answer is in a quantum degree!

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 3. It feeds the friendly bacteria in the intestine, which turn it into short-chain fatty acids like butyrate, shown to protect against fat gain in some animal studies. Feeding the friendly gut bacteria may also have other benefits, and some studies have shown a correlation between altered gut bacteria and body weight. 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

* Three human studies showed that glucomannan, combined with a healthy diet, can help people lose 8-10 pounds (3.6-4.5 kg) of weight in 5 weeks. (For more info on this study visit www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15614200 )

Q & A WITH CINZIA VUAT

WITH ELISABETH JENSEN

Hi Cinzia, Please can you see if my job will change for me. I'm worried as there is lots changing at work. Thank you. Glenys ADELAIDE. Hi Glenys, My guides pass on that management is making quite a lot of changes at your workplace but that these workplace changes are necessary and will cause improvements for everyone concerned. Please do not stress or worry about your job. This is a good thing and everyone will benefit from it and there's going to be work related training coming up for you. My love and best wishes, Cinzia.

Dip Hypnosis & NLP & Triple Award Winning Psychic

DECIDE YOUR OWN DESTINY WITH HOLISTIC HYPNOTHERAPY Many clients coming for a psychic reading simply ask me for “Just a General Reading Please”. I am still waiting to discover how psychic generalisations about how a persons future will be can really be of great benefit to a person when I myself don’t believe we have to have a fixed future unless we choose to never change our usual actions, thoughts, beliefs, and most importantly. our unconscious minds. So I gently suggest looking at best possible paths clients can follow or the best options they can take to improve their lives or what negative past life or present life influences they can release would be far more beneficial. Many clients agree rather dubiously to this as they feel an award-winning psychic like myself should be simply predicting their future and by knowing their future all problems can be resolved! Again I simply say that fortunately on an individual level their future is not fixed so let’s look at what they would like to focus on the most and ask for Divine Guidance and Insights on how best to achieve success in their lives. REPROGRAMMING YOUR UNCONSCIOUS MIND & KARMIC RECORDS This has always been my approach to readings because as a former Registered Nurse and now a Medical Intuitive a diagnosis and recovery plan makes more sense to me than simply a difficult diagnosis without any further action – and believe me

most clients come to me at a time of crisis not when all is well in their lives. So the more I studied Hypnosis & Regression Therapy plus Hypnoanalysis the more I realised that all that has happened even before birth. plus during our time in the womb, then as a small child, affects our Unconscious Mind. Our Unconscious Mind decides our physical and emotional health and can easily be reprogrammed towards joy and good health. My focus now is on Holistic and Spiritual plus Regression Hypnosis to earlier this life plus Past Lives and Life in the Light as I believe our Higher Self and Soul are always also waiting with wise guidance about our Soul Plan for this incarnation. So is my client seeking just a smooth life or to live their Soul Path which is often harder work but far more satisfying spiritually? What difficult lessons have they chosen before birth to clear Karma in this life and can they let it go now as being sick and in pain and poverty means clients might find it hard to fulfil their true destiny. So as both a Hypnotherapist and Psychic I truly find Psychic Coaching far more satisfying to both me and my client. Words chosen with care can help the depressed client see there can be Light at the end of the Tunnel if they choose the correct path – negative statements and words chosen just to prove how accurate a psychic is might become correct if the client absolutely believes a certain statement even if its themselves CREATING that reality for themselves.

CLIENTS IN A PSYCHIC TRANCE At any psychic expo it’s easy to see many people have several readings with different psychics in the hope they will hear what they want to hear about their future. They sit there in a trance like state with the psychics words going directly into their Unconscious Minds – or Bypassing the Critical Faculty of the Conscious Mind it’s called in Hypnosis- and so these predictions become their reality. If it’s an ethical and caring psychic reading that’s fine but if it’s given with little thought to the effect a negative prediction will have on the Unconscious Mind of an unsuspecting client it can cause harm and fear that that lasts for years or even creates the negative prediction. MEDICAL SPELLBINDING Imagine if you go to your local MD and he suddenly. and with the best of intentions. gently says “You have six months to live – best prepare yourself to die” Most clients receiving a diagnosis like that go into a shocked and trance like state and accept it as their reality. Often it becomes

their reality then as the Unconscious Mind accepts this belief. It takes a determined person to seek out an alternative reality for themselves through processes such as Hypnotherapy to clear that belief from the Unconscious Mind and to resolve with their Higher Self and Soul if this really needs to be their Soul Plan at this stage of their life. So your Destiny can be yours to decide. Changing the destiny of those around us and of World Events is tougher but is not impossible. Choose your friends and Professional Guidance wisely and generally your future will be full of successes and very bright.

Please Cinzia can you tell me about my relationship. I'm divorced three years and I've met someone a year ago and while we don't live together I feel unhappy and controlled in this relationship. I am unhappy but I feel stuck can you shed some light please? Mark (Address withheld by request). Yes Mark! I feel that you are both struggling with this relationship, but I'm told you are both growing from it also and this is probably why you both seem to be hanging in there. I can hear you both talking about going away overseas on a trip and I see you going on this overseas trip, so I know that you are hanging in there together! I believe you both are learning to stand in your own power and find your loving voice and speak your truth without arguing. You guys are going to make it!. Your guide suggest getting some counselling help with things. My love and best wishes, Cinzia. Dear Cinzia Hi Cinzia, I'm in the middle of exams and very hard at work at the moment juggling it all.

Can you see me passing well and being able to meet all these commitments at the same time. Please, thank you. Sandra. (Address withheld by request)

FEEDBACK

Dear Cinzia I rang you up desperate because I had left my work and lost my work utility keys somewhere – and my work needed them the very next day. I had looked everywhere, retraced my steps, gone to every business that I stopped off at, I had looked everywhere and I was tearing my hair out. It was a weird idea to ring you but I just had no idea what else I could do and I was worried about what would happen with my job. When you told me that the keys had not even left my work and was sitting on a box in or near a factory I didn't believe it, you told me to recheck with the factory and that someone would be ringing me about it very soon and at the time I thought I had wasted my call because I absolutely knew I had left my work with them. I nonetheless rang and asked them to search but figured there was no point hoping. At least that's what I thought! Less then 15 minutes after hanging up the phone I got a phone call back from night shift, the keys had been left on a box in the storeroom next to our main workplace! I couldn't believe it. I had totally forgotten going there just before leaving to go on rounds. Thanks!

Ever In God’s Hands BY LEO DRIOLI

“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 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.

One breath and you're Here. This is the natural state. This is the place where we cease diminishing who we are by thinking we are something else ... smaller, bigger, stronger, better, more loving, more pure. This that we are in this breath is always already awake, pure, whole and eternally free. When the mind takes hold, This takes a quiet back seat, simply allowing and observing ... no rush, no desire ... simply being and lovingly allowing. It's funny how we can lose ourselves in those thoughts and feelings about ourselves, about our lives, about others. It's funny how we continue to fall back in to attached forgetfulness even once we've seen the truth of our essential eternal beingness. Our innate freedom lovingly allows even this. How compassionate This is to allow it... infinitely patient and compassionate with ourselves. God loves us so completely. We can be whoever we dream ourselves to be. We can stay away from the Truth for as long as we choose to. But eventually we come Home. That soft burning love in the Heart ... steers the ship anyway. No matter what we do, where we go, Love will always win out. One breath and you're Here. Do you know this? This is all it really takes. You're breathing anyway, why not make good use of it? When we remember to come back in, all is clear ... immediately clear, pure, true and transparent. We can hang on at the edge forever, wondering when God will raise us up ... we will be waiting forever. The edge asks us to let go and drop back in. “Be here," it whispers. "Be here and drop in..." There's no other way back. It takes all you've got. It takes more than courage. It takes the letting go of the "little me" view of things. Love calls each day, each moment in fact... and your suffering is the measure of resistance and denial within you. This is what holds you captive yet, it can also can become your compass. See this, and you're in God's hands ... and suffering ends. One breath in and you're Here.

It's not a big ask ... really. Simply give all you've got ... all of it! Simply be who you are. This is the ultimate maxim: Be who you are. Could it be any simpler than this? Strip back to the bare aliveness within you. Don't stop with any thought. No thought will ever measure up. Be willing to simply fall back in. And This is here, forever here ... simply waiting for your return. One breath and you're Here. Ever-patient ... ever-compassionate ... ever-present. Ever-in God's hands. Leo Drioli is co-ditor of Innerself Newspaper, author of “Every Moment’s a Miracle” and as a singer/songwriter has recorded his collection of original Heart-Songs CD “Let Your Spirit Sing”.

After falling asleep in the Australian outback, Virginia finds herself in another realm – way beyond what we would normally call a dream, where in full consciousness, she meets with the beautiful ethereal Being “Mother Earth”, who takes her on a glorious guided journey into the “Spheres of Light”. 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 reader in direct contact with this same placeless place of peace and harmony within themselves.

“THIS BRILLIANT CONTRIBUTION TO OUR MODERN

MY INTUITION LED ME TO LOVE - A MEMOIR By Brigitte Malisa This inspiring book of Affirmation leads the reader through a love story with a powerful message of hope, healing and spiritual transformation. At the tender age of 22, the author awakens to her innate gifts as an intuitive reader and healer. With her ever present guidance

www.sacredwishes.com.au

EARTH WARRIOR By Paul Williamson In this story, a working group of souls train in the Spirit world to incarnate on Earth and help transform the planet and all life forms upon it. As the group face their challenges as “Earth Warriors”, they passionately apply themselves to their mission to help humanity discover its spiritual heart and to actually finally live from it. The author is a Past life Therapist who is deeply concerned about our planet’s destiny, pouring his many years work as a regression therapist into this powerful message of hope and redemption. www.soulhypnothherapy.com

THE PLACES THAT SCARE YOU By Pema Chodron This direct approach to spirituality is influenced greatly

by Pema Chodron’s teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and similar to Chogyam Trungpa, Pema also teachers in a firm yet very compassionate manner. In “The Places That Scare You” , Chodron teaches that we already have the wisdom inherently in us to face life’s difficulties but that we usually block it with patterns rooted in fear. This book’s intention is to help people become more accepting of life as it is, both the good and bad times, while doing their best to find the beauty in it all.

US TO A NEW AWARENESS OF OURSELVES.”

Lama Surya Das, Author of Awakening the Buddha Within This practical guide to accessing an awakened state in everyday life draws on Enza Vita's own profound encounter with enlightenment. Written for anyone who has ever set out on a spiritual path, it reveals the astounding truth about awakening: what we are looking for is here now and has always been. She explains the meaning of real meditation, which lies in letting go of control rather than in seeking to control the experience, and offers Presence Pause exercises as well as many hints and tips for letting your thoughts be and accessing true awareness. This book shows that it really is possible to escape from the suffering created by our thoughts and emotions, and that enlightenment is not an unreachable ideal but attainable in our ordinary lives.

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 Vita is the publisher and editor of InnerSelf newspaper and website, and the founder and director of the MahaShanti Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to spiritual awakening. She has distilled over 40 years of spiritual exploration into a modern, practical and authentic spirituality that engages with the universal teaching underlying all religions. www.enzavita.com

HARLEQUIN & THE MOTHER EARTH By Virginia Lee This deeply inspiring and eloquently told tale of spiritual inquiry, challenge, manifestation and authentic realization sits comfortably alongside some of the greatest works of “Heroic Journey” writers through the centuries including Dante’s allegorical “The Divine Comedy” , John Bunyan’s “The Pilgrim’s Progress”, Herman Hesse’s “Siddhartha” and Paulo Coelho’s “The Alchemist” .

Seeing Joy on our way through our life’s journey. BY SUSANNE MARIE At the moment I am in Queensland. When I am other than in the Adelaide Hills it gives me the change to step back and assess what is important and what is not. A couple of years ago I wrote about the changing seasons and how it parallels to the changes that occur in our lives. I am here because I have the honour and privilege of teaching one of the most amazing spiritual and life changing courses that I think there is available. Thetahealing® offers many wonderful courses but the three week Intuitive Anatomy course facilitates much change in our lives. It is reminiscent of a microcosm of our life. In three short weeks we can face and clear so much that has built up during our lifetime. For me it is one of the ways to bring much joy into my life. For any who are following a spiritual path there are always joys and there are always challenges. How we handle those challenges in life ultimately can lead us towards joy or otherwise. Looking at the things that are important to us can help in that process. There is the importance of being in communication with our loved ones. Sometimes we can feel much joy by being in the presence of those we love. I think back to many wonderful family occasions when there is a gathering of members of my family. Weddings are one that bring many of us together, sometimes for the first time in years. There is the joy of conversations with those whom we spent much

time when we were younger. It is sometimes good to see the ease with which we can make up for many intervening years. By the same token, funerals can be a gathering of the clan, of family and of friends. Even though the occasion can have sadness there can also be joy in renewed connections. I have a number of friends who have families who came to Australia from many places around the world. I have seen the joy and at the same time trepidation when a long-awaited return to that country for a visit is considered, planned and finally after months of preparation is executed. What mixed feelings to be dealt with? Will old wounds be remembered or will they be forgotten in the joyous moment of meeting again? I like to think and hope that the latter, joy, is of prime importance to them. Certainly, in many I have witnessed, this has been the case. Friendships are also of great importance and in the choices we make in those friends we can bring much joy in to our lives or on occasion the opposite. If there are some friendships that change and we feel ready to move on we can consider that if nothing else that person presented us with lessons we needed to learn. Therefore, on their moving out of our lives we can look back with gratitude for lessons learned and just send love as they move on. Friendships can also be utterly delightful and we can remember wonderful shared moments of laughter, support, wisdom and

joy. With some of those friends, the joyous moments can last a lifetime. It is wonderful to be able to reminisce on fun things. I have shared road trips in amazing places with two or three different wonderful friends. To remember highlights, even some of which may have seemed like lowlights at the time, are often the fun things to remember. I have chuckled with friends over some of those moments in time. Teaching and learning also bring much joy in all that I do. Every class that I teach is a huge learning experience as well. Every time I explain something to a grandchild and hold conversations with them, I also earn something new. The wisdom of a child whether they be two years old, four, five or seven is always refreshing if we stop to listen and take on board the world through their perspective. I believe that learning is a constant, whether it be wisdom in a poem or a quote we have read, or whether it be in tackling a new skill no matter what our age. I have found at times that the electronic age has presented me with some interesting challenges that I never thought were possible. With every new learning there also can be a sense of joy of achievement. The tougher the challenge the greater the reward when it is ultimately grasped. This is but a few of the ways we can bring joy in to our lives. Be vigilant and aware when opportunities to receive and accept joy arrive. Grasp them with both hands!

Be Healthy, Happy and in Harmony

CLEARING & RE-ADJUSTMENTS BY FRAN TOMLIN This brings up an old theme of mine which is “As you say it, so it is”. It can, to my mind, never be stated enough. Its all about your belief systems. In fact, your life is all about your belief systems. What are beliefs? They are simply thoughts you think over & over again ad infinitum. And you can change your thoughts ... you can change your mind. So it applies therefore that you can change your beliefs . Yes ? Yes. BUT - the trick is that you need to change them thoroughly andminutely to the extent that you can literally feeel the change physically, deep within in your cells; with absolute conviction – so that it’s almost a palpable thing. And therein is the crux. That’s the work. Hard work. It demands consistency of practice, determination, vigilance over one’s thoughts, dedication and constant practice, practice, practice. It’s high maintenance work. However, once you are in the swing of it , it automatically takes you to a place of surrender into Higher Power, because simply in the practising of it, a) your vibration/frequency rises

automatically, and b) you begin to literally see the manifestation happening in your life. Literally. So, in relief, and therefore “elaxing” you again, automatically, begin to flow with what is... which in itself then becomes a state of Surrender. And thats when all you ever wanted starts to flow effortlessly into your life. SO – here’s how to do it. It’s a proven fact that everything in the Universe is energy... right? So, if you do buy into the belief that “your thoughts create your world” (and how could you not?) then it stands to reason that since your thoughts and words are energy themselves, those very thoughts, words and the feeeelings they engender are the key elements in creating your world. The ripple effects of your thoughts, words and feelings (and therefore of course your actions – and/or re-actions) cannot in any manner be underestimated, nor the fact overstressed, in terms of their infinite importance. In other words - “As you say it, so it is”. Better then to be very careful

as to what you say, think or feel, as that energy will always, at some stage, return threefold unto from whence it came (and timewise, that’s almost immediately these days) thus becoming the living Law of Attraction at work in your life. You attract to you, what you put out there. In the same way that if you focus upon something, anything – it becomes very much a “larger” issue to you. Sometimes in the negative it becomes almost out of proportion; draining you of energy and assuming a life of its own causing havoc. This applies just the same to the positive as well. If you focus upon and nurture a goal it grows ever more abundant. Simply put, what you focus upon becomes a reality. So, it’s ultra important to check up on your belief systems. Why? Because you are continually thinking, feeling and speaking from them all the time. And so perfect is the Universe, that here it is – giving you back precisely what it is that you “ordered” energetically i.e all that you have talked about, felt about and thought about – all originating from the frequency you are vibrating at. (Hence the need to check your belief systems as to whether they resonate at a more negative or positive vibration because that directly affects/ dictates the frequencies that you are putting “out there” into the Cosmos). The Universe is a perfect mirror, a perfect reflection to us all – and so individually (and wholistically) it serves to give you energetically “what you ask for”. You can see then, that it’s extremely important to be Mindful of your thoughts, feelings and the words you speak in the true creation of your life and all its manifestations thereof. As the Buddhists say “Right thought, Right Speech = Right Action.” I myself however, would add as well “Right Feeling”. So, maybe it’s time for a good clearing out of the old, and an adjustment into the NEW? Namaste.
