T

he first edition of Holistic Bliss was birthed ten years ago and even though those first few editions weren’t fancy, it was conceived from a spark of inspiration and so this edition we are celebrating all the people who have contributed (and are still contributing) to the magazine over this time. What a great joy to have met you all and be part of the change process on the planet together! So how do you keep creating a business long-term? Regularly ask yourself if it is still fun! And it takes you on an inner journey of discovering more of yourself. You have to be prepared to let go, delegate, trust, keep the ideas rolling (and implementing systems) and that means being present and being able to receive in all directions, yes, even on those uncomfortable days. What a rich tapestry of experiences!

‘FOLLOW YOUR BLISS’

Creativity, consciousness, expression, healing, the joy of being… these are all aspects of what makes Holistic Bliss what it is and we have included so many inspiring stories and new information over ten years and at the same time… we’ve only just begun… and what next? This month, it was blissful to meet international cosmic guide and Hay House author, Elizabeth Peru (our cover girl) and great to share her story for this special edition, on pages 20-21. And remember to enter our Living Valley Springs 7-night healthy holiday giveaway (see page 50) and this is the third holiday giveaway we have offered leading up to our 10th Birthday, to say thank-you to You, for reading and being part of our bliss!!

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Retreat Review:

Magic in the mountains REVIEW BY VANESSA FINNIGAN

W

hile there weren’t any broomsticks and cauldrons, our two-night stay at Witches Falls Cottages was magic, and we were there during a great time of change with the super blood moon total lunar eclipse! Our hosts, David and Daniela, warmly welcomed Rod and myself. We were impressed with the collaborative and progressive way they work in with other local businesses by designing creative workshops and inviting a range of people from the community to be involved. We recommend checking out their book of suggested travel trails, as they have gone to a lot of effort to create something special for people visiting the area. We were thoroughly spoilt during our mini holiday and their comfortable cottages had everything – a king size bed, luxury double spa bath nestled in nature, TV/video with a truck load of videos to watch, and a little bottle of local port and decadent chocolates waiting for us on arrival. Waking up in the morning to the

sounds of nature was such a treat, as was the gourmet breakfast hamper delivered each morning to our cottage door. You can select from either a cold or cooked hamper, and the freshly made hot bread was ample to eat for the entire day. We had our breakfast in the courtyard and rose garden, which was a great way to start the day before venturing out into one of the many walking trails in the area. Did you know Tamborine Mountain is the third oldest National Park in the world? Just a quick walk across the road from the cottages and you are right in the thick of lush rainforest, where you can be surrounded by negative ions to help relax and unwind. Speaking of relaxation, the following day we had two talented massage therapists come to our cottage from Ripple Massage for a sublime 90-minute treatment, which included a relaxing foot soak and facial at the end of the deeply relaxing therapeutic massage. Because I was reviewing the area, our hosts were keen for us to experience

the local fare and were kind enough to shout us our first dinner at Hickory restaurant. I had one of the best vegetarian platters I have ever eaten called the Vegesaurus Trencher, which included homemade falafel, pumpkin hummus, quinoa, beet and red onion feta, toasted macadamia nut salad and more, while my partner had the ribs platter, so there was something for everyone. Another friendly, local business putting love into everything they create. I could easily write another page about this beautiful experience. Needless to say, it was a little hard to leave after all that pampering but it’s a spot we are sure to regularly visit, now we know what a special gem it is. Witches Falls Cottages in Tamborine Mountain is just an hour’s drive south of Brisbane and only 30 minutes inland from the Gold Coast. www.witchesfallscottages.com.au www.ripplemassage.com.au www.hickoryslow.com.au

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Is yeast overgrowth

ruining your health?

WORDS JOEL GRACE, Owner, Sunshine Colonics Health & Wellness Centre

W

hen it comes to your digestive system, there are lots of nasties that can take hold. But it’s not only nasties like parasites and bad bacteria that can cause health problems. Yeast overgrowth is emerging as a big culprit in a variety of gastrointestinal issues. But in examining the detrimental effects of yeast strains like Candida albicans, we also need to ask: Can yeast actually be good for you too? I’ve heard of candida, but what is it exactly? Candida is a fungus that takes the form of yeast and naturally populates our mouth and digestive system in small quantities. “How can something natural be bad for you?” I hear you ask. Well, quite simply, it’s not! Candida’s primary role is to aid in digestion and nutrient absorption, but too much of a good thing can become a very bad thing. Which leads us to why candida has such a bad rap: overgrowth. When the conditions in your body allow candida colonies to overgrow,

it breaks down your intestinal lining and penetrates the bloodstream, which releases toxins into your body and causes leaky gut syndrome. Signs you might have a yeast overgrowth include brain fog, nail infections, skin issues, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, mood disorders and seasonal allergies. In a well-functioning colon, your beneficial bacteria will keep candida in check, preventing overgrowth. But an out-of-balance digestive system can easily allow candida to take over and cause damage. Factors that contribute to a rise in candida levels include a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugars, excessive alcohol consumption, high stress levels and pharmaceuticals. Is yeast in your gut always a bad thing? It’s quite unfortunate that candida has given all digestive system yeasts a bad name, because there’s actually some benefit to having specific types of beneficial yeast strains populate your gut. Probiotic yeasts can be a safe and natural way for people to maintain

or restore a balanced gastrointestinal flora for optimal gut comfort. When the yeast strain Saccharomyces boulardii populates your colon, it has been shown to boost protective antibodies while successfully crowding out ‘bad’ yeast like candida. It is also shown to reduce abdominal discomfort in people with IBS. Similarly, nutritional yeast has been used around the world for many years as a way to support overall wellbeing, along with nail, skin and hair care. It is also often fortified with B12, making it an excellent addition to your meals when following a plant-based diet. Yeast fractions, extracted from cell walls containing beta-glucans, are another friendly form of activated yeast that have proven in studies to contribute to the proper functioning of your immune system. So you can see there’s nothing to fear about all yeasts, as some can be very useful for optimal health and wellbeing. www.sunshinecolonics.com.au

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

The magic of a

Stuffed Pumpkin

WORDS DOMINIQUE LIV KAMAL

T

he inspiration of food often comes through joy and friendship! I hadn’t made stuffed pumpkin for years… and then my lovely friend invited me over for lunch! She made a gorgeous stuffed pumpkin with avocado sauce. Her husband gave me a fresh pumpkin from the garden and I spent my journey home thinking of ways to stuff pumpkins. The next night we all enjoyed this delicious meal thanks to my friend’s inspiration!

What you need: 1 large pumpkin that has been deseeded. The inside needs to be scooped out enough to fill the pumpkin with your choices. The lid needs to be kept. To scoop out the pumpkin, slice around the top of the whole pumpkin with a sharp knife and scoop off the lid. Then take out the seeds with a large spoon and scoop with the spoon into the flesh of the pumpkin until you only have about 1.5 inches of outer flesh and skin as a case for your stuffing.

Your stuffing for the pumpkin: Pre-cook brown rice and mix with fresh raw vegetables cut in small pieces. Mix them all together and add your spices. Add meat of your choice. This can be done with 1kg of fresh local meat chopped finely and cooked with onion, garlic and spices. My filling choice is freshly chopped up vegetables, garden herbs, mixed with ricotta cheese so that you have a big cheesy ball. Make sure you add your favourite flavouring spices to this mix. Examples are: garlic, herbs, stock powder for extra flavour, peanut butter, some honey, a little salt, chilli, curry powder. Make sure your filling is dense without much liquid and pop the top on your pumpkin before cooking. How to cook: 1. Stuff the pumpkin with the mix you made. 2. Turn the oven on to 150 degrees slow

oven for this one and if you have the option to turn off the fan, then turn it off. 3. Place the pumpkin in a baking dish and coat with some good quality olive oil and rub lightly with some sea salt. 4. Bake in the oven for three to four hours with the oven slow and low. This enables the pumpkin to cook right through and the flavours to mature nicely. You can also place the pumpkin in a deep casserole dish in the oven too with a lid on. The choice is yours. Either way, you want to give this dish time to cook so that the end result is a soft and flavour-filled meal. We served ours with some coconut, raisin and pine nut rice, honeyed carrots and butter beans.

Salt Caves Review:

Salt cave bliss REVIEW BY KRISHNA EVERSON

T

he tranquil ambiance was palpable the moment I stepped into the foyer. I was there to experience three hours of relaxation bliss, including a far infrared sauna, magnesium massage, and signature salt cave therapy experience. The salt cave is at the heart of their establishment located in central Mooloolaba. I was warmly greeted by manager Lizy who made me feel immediately at home. She carefully explained what I could expect and led me into the private sauna room. After 30 minutes basking in the relaxing infrared rays, I emerged perspiring yet content, ready to hydrate and enjoy the hot towels provided. After stepping into my robe, I was escorted into the massage room by Karina. I was surprised to find that not only was the salt cave itself constructed using blocks of Himalayan salt, but also the therapy rooms. By midway through my delicious magnesium massage, I

12

| APRIL 2019 | Holistic Bliss

was well and truly in a blissful state, it was almost an out-of-body experience, I’m not kidding! I felt truly pampered by the use of Karina’s relaxation and Kahuna techniques. I have had my fair share of massages over the years, and I am a huge fan of magnesium, but this combination was a real treat, and right up there with the best of them. I was really excited (relaxingly so) for the final part of my experience. I had seen photos and heard about the salt therapy cave, but didn’t really know what to expect. No mobile devices are permitted, and a locker is provided for any belongings. The cave is experienced fully clothed. Clients enter the cave wearing booties provided, and nestle into the reclining chairs as music is piped into the cave. The Himalayan salt brick walls generate a gentle glow (similar to a salt lamp) and the floor is covered in a deep layer of the healing salt. A microniser is used to

pump minute particles of the salt into the air which is inhaled deeply into the respiratory tract. I had absolutely no awareness of this whatsoever, I was completely comfortable and relaxed, and even fell asleep! The salt is reputed as being effective for respiratory and skin conditions, without unpleasant side effects. At the end of my session I felt totally relaxed and at ease, and a free salt cave therapy session is offered for the second visit! What struck me about the experience overall, was the attention to detail. It felt like stepping into another time and place. I would not hesitate in buying this for a friend, and would definitely recommend it on your Mooloolaba day trip itinerary. Lizy promised I would leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and centred, and I was not disappointed! www.saltcaves.com.au

Children are our future WORDS JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education

E

ach child comes into the world with a gift. Part of their journey in life is to learn about themselves, what they like and dislike, what they are good at, and what they enjoy. It’s an exciting time for children because they are eager to discover things about themselves. As adults, sometimes we push our beliefs and ideas onto a child, which can squash their ability or interest. By allowing children to explore all possibilities in a safe and encouraging way, they will naturally gravitate to what they will excel at. There are three key tips to encouraging children to shine their brilliance and know they are inspirational: 1. LISTEN A child needs to be listened to and allowed to express their creativity. Listening can be through the auditory channel and with words, but also through art, play and sport. To listen means not telling a child how things are, but seeing the child’s point of view and accepting their visions. To actively listen

is to accept and be in a calm place and space for the child to feel loved. 2. HAVE AN OPEN MIND Children feel safe and secure when they know they have guardians who are open minded. This allows them to express themselves creatively, knowing no judgment will be made. They can let their creative brain flow, discover their gifts and fulfil their purpose. To have an open mind means a parent, teacher or guardian of a child is open to all possibilities. As we all know, children can have ‘adventurous and wild’ thoughts and imaginations. Their minds are like a sponge, open to all possibilities and they innately know that anything is possible. Ask them what they want to be when they grow up and the wildest and most fabulous answers surface. The key is not to squash their ideas, as they may become the scientist who cures cancer or the leader who achieves world peace. 3. SEE THE GIFT IN EVERYTHING The last and most important tip is that everything in life that involves children is a gift to us as adults. Children

teach us unconditional love, from birth until we die. When a child yells, has a temper tantrum or says they hate you, see the gift in that, as they know you love them and they feel safe with you. When children come into our life, they are the original gift of unconditional love and inspiration. Children are my inspiration. Are they for you?

Dental care for your total wellbeing! We are holistic dentists because we recommend the treatment that will be right for your body. It means that in everything we do we consider the impact of it on your body and use only materials and procedures accordingly. For example, when we are removing amalgam we use a rubber dam, high speed suction and an IQair air purifier so you don’t swallow any of the material or breathe in any of the mercury vapour. It’s the dentistry for you if you care about your total wellbeing.

Radical radionics WORDS HEINZ GUGGER

A

lbert Einstein said, “Everything is energy, and that’s all there is. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.” The concept of radionics is not new. Dr Albert Abrams, a medical professor at Stanford University, is credited with its development in the early 1900s. Electrical engineer Dr T Galen Hieronymus (1895-1988) received a US patent for an instrument he designed to detect and measure ‘emanations from material’. It was quite common during this time to use radionics in agriculture, human and animal health, and was accepted as a tool in the medical establishment. As the American Medical Association grew in strength and the allopathic medical model pushed ahead, alternative health and agricultural innovators were persecuted for practising radionics. The past few years have seen

renewed interest in radionics, with its effects recognised and utilised more widely across a range of disciplines. Whether farmers or alternative practitioners, businesses or individuals, are all now interested in enhancing their products, creating the energy and life they want, and building an environment that flourishes. Radionics is controversial because it is a metaphysical science – for now. It is a means of focusing and amplifying your intention to interact with subtle energies. Once we understand that everything in our universe gives off its own characteristic radiating pattern, frequency or wave form, it is easier to understand why radionics works. A radionics instrument is a tool used to detect, measure, analyse, evaluate and quantify these frequencies. With a radionics instrument, you can then tap into these frequencies, alter and transform them to achieve equilibrium. At the very heart of radionics is the focused intent of the trained operator.

The instrument can then bring desirable changes in the subtle field. It is the mind of the operator that serves as a focusing lens for the limitless symphony of vibration energy that defines and illuminates our physical reality. The radionic instrument merely serves as a mind matter interface, allowing the operator to recognise points of harmonic resonance. A trained operator can use an instrument for analysis by scanning different rates (frequencies), finding which points/energies are out of alignment, and then use rates, reagents and physical inputs to reset and physically change the entire system. There are a few misconceptions about the use of radionics and what it is/is not, but when tangible results are seen (which can happen quickly and over a long-term period) it will be a valuable tool for future farmers, health practitioners and businesses. www.universalenergyclearing.com

I was lost! WORDS LINDA WILLOW ROBERTS

I

had tried to make my little family work, it was in my conditioning to make it work, mum was encouraging me to try harder, to cook and clean and look after my partner. What worked for that generation wasn’t necessarily going to work for me. I was in an abusive, volatile relationship. I had a beautiful little daughter and desperately wanted a better life for her and me. She was my inspiration even back then when I had my darkest moments and wanted to give up and not be here, I could never do that to her, she was my reason for living. Isn’t it amazing when you bring someone new into this world, the selfishness leaves and you’re totally living and striving forward because of the unconditional love you have for your child. I had struggled with self-sabotaging and addictions, I was truly lost before she was born. I was psychic from an early age and always felt like I didn’t

belong until I brought my ray of sunshine into this world, then I had purpose. So my thought process started with, “the buck stops with me,” if I don’t change and alter my life cycle or patterns, it would repeat and I didn’t want her to have the life experiences I was having. Although, I am thankful now for the lessons and I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t had those experiences. So that was the driving force behind me evolving and growing spiritually, I took it very seriously and removed layer after layer of pain, blocks and patterns in past lives and in this life. I read anything I could get my hands on about releasing and forgiveness, doing course after course, learning new modalities. I partnered with spirit (although years prior when I was in despair, I had called upon them to help me). I was starting to feel their presence

more and more and trust in their guidance. I still doubted myself, and fear reared its head, but the void inside started to disappear. My daughter is now a grown woman, and again, many years later she said something else to me that triggered another light bulb moment. “How are you mum?” she said. “Good, thank you” I replied. Silent for a moment, “I don’t want you to be just okay! I want you to be great,” she said. For the first time ever, I contemplated how much she thinks about me or worries about me, I didn’t want her to be concerned for me, it wasn’t her job. I had left that victim way of thinking behind me many years ago. I still ponder that question every couple of weeks myself, because it’s up to me what I experience and my daughter taught me that, she is my inspiration to be great. www.lindawillowroberts.com

INSPIRATION

It didn’t start with you WORDS ROB FOSTER

W

e all have access to an inner inspiration and purpose, it is available to every human being on this planet. Every man, woman and child has the same potential to be fully inspired and free. Yet to be inspired in our lives, we must be aware of and connected to our highest values. These are slightly different for everyone, they may include peace, kindness, truth, honesty, learning and love. They are like a compass guiding us towards an outstanding, uplifting and fulfilling life. On the other hand, not having a life dedicated to honouring our innermost values, is a bit like boarding a ship that leaves port without a compass or any bearing. No matter how sturdy its construction, or competent its crew, it will flounder around in mid ocean, never fulfilling its journey.

We are the same. We must be honest with ourselves and admit that when we value chaos, confusion and anger, we suffer. Yet with values like self-kindness and compassion, life’s ship sails in a new direction. Take an honesty inventory of your life. Are your values bringing happiness to the world, your relationships and ultimately your own life? If not, then it is time to inspire a new way of being and develop a practice of introspection and mindfulness. Begin here: Make a list of your highest values, this list should be deeply meaningful to you. Reflect and redesign your orienting values, reflect on how they make you feel and how they guide your actions. You must become your own detective. Each day re-read them, make a

commitment and do your best to live by these values and forgive yourself when you forget. If you are continually drawn in to old patterns, access Family Constellations and Non Violent Communication as tools to learn and grow beyond limiting inherited beliefs. It is time to make a pledge to yourself to let go of your old stories and dis-ease. This is the only way to true lasting happiness. Choosing what you are dedicated to is a choice that every adult must make in their own individual lives. Ask yourself: Am I self-responsible for my actions and choices? Am I willing to lead the most fulfilling and inspired life on offer to me? Or do I succumb to the forces of my previous habits and inherited trauma? www.discoveringinsight.com.au

INSPIRATION

Inspired frequency WORDS TATIANA SAVERY

W

hat does it mean to be inspired? Inspiration is a treasured state for myself and a word that always reminds me of who we truly are. True inspiration means to be in spirit. Where did such a word arrive from but to describe the state of being in-spirit. Latin etymology traces this word back to inspirare – to breathe into. When we are feeling the effects of inspiration, our communion with our spirit is breathing into our mind. We listen and feel the love within. We allow the love to pour through us and embrace everyone. Then we look through the eyes of love and not judgment, the world we see is always an outside picture of an inward condition. Judgment reinforces that we are all different, when in truth we are all the same. We are all one spirit from source. We all share the same aspirations to return home to peace. Inspiration, in-spirit, is a symbol of

our right-minded thought – the thought of peace. The way to hear the voice of inspiration is to change our perception and practise the art of forgiveness. Every instant we choose peace over suffering, we create a communion with our true spirit. When living from in-spirit, we receive the idea to take certain actions, or those who appear to be separated from us take action on an inspired thought; which creates more peace for everyone. Inspiration can take many forms; however, the outcome and opportunity are always the same – to wake us all up. We all share the same need to awaken from this dream of guilt. Attack always comes from guilt. Attack is a call for love. Inspiration can stop people from doing something dangerous. This stops the perception of being hurt and the perpetrator from doing something that will then cause guilt. To hear the call of spirit, is to help us remember who we truly are. This

symbol of inspiration was put in place to always be there while we dream of being separate, it is our own voice of right-mindedness to wake us up. Eventually there will be no separation from our true spirit, as we become our right-mind thoughts; which are the thoughts of peace. Inspiration does not change the world. It changes how we see the world. It gives us back the power of our mind, to be the dreamer and not the character in the dream. The only purpose of us here, is to be always vigilant to choose love over duality. Heaven is the awareness of perfect oneness and that there is nothing else. When functioning from in-spirit, we know that to forgive someone in a world of oneness is to forgive oneself. Inspiration is when our true identity is restored to us – we remember who we are. www.powertube.com.au

genetic potential

WORDS MARY MARTIN and CASSANDRA COOK, Naturopaths at Integrated Wellness Clinic

M

ost people understand that our genes support our uniqueness – they influence everything from the colour of our eyes and our height, to the predisposition to chronic disease. However, science now confirms that our genes interact with our lifestyle choices, such as nutrition, exercise and environmental exposures. To understand more about our genes, it is important to know that our unique genetic make-up, which is what we are born with, is like our hard drive – and represents our health potential for life. To function optimally in our environment, our genes have ‘epigenomes’, which are parts of our genes that interact with the environment and cause our genes to be ‘triggered’ – otherwise known as ‘epigenetics’ or our software. Therefore, the expression of our DNA is actually controlled by signals from outside each cell – which primarily come from our diet, lifestyle and environmental exposures. This is empowering! Our genes may load the ‘gun’, but it is our diet, lifestyle, stress and other

environmental exposures that pull the ‘trigger’ that causes disease and premature ageing. By matching our diet and lifestyle to our unique genetic make-up, we can optimise our body to age well and prevent/reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Put simply – our genes, our environment and our lifestyle are the essential components of a healthy life, and we now know that just because we might have a genetic tendency to something – it does not have to mean that those genes will be switched on, once we know how to manage our individual genetic make-up. Gene variations and diet-regulated genes, can modify the onset and severity of disease. When our bodies are healthy, with access to all the nutrients they genetically need, we typically can slow down the rate of ageing and achieve a higher quality of life and vitality. Genetic testing helps to give us the control of our genes and our current and future health.

So you may be asking what will genetic DNA testing do for me? You will know where your potential genetic weaknesses are, so you can put preventative strategies into place. It will enable your practitioner to advise you on specific preventative health strategies to improve your long term health. What gene testing will not do: It will not predict the risk of diseases such as cancer, plus it will not identify disease causing changes in genes. By doing a simple once-only noninvasive test, you can discover your DNA blueprint and learn how well your genes are matched to your present diet and lifestyle, as well as how you can unlock the full potential of your current and future health and wellness. As practitioners we can assess your genetic profile and teach you how to optimise your diet and modify your lifestyle to ‘turn off’ or down-regulate genes that have the potential to cause harm, and ‘turn on’ or up-regulate the genes that help to prevent disease. www.integratedwellnessclinic.com.au

A Unique Cosmic Connection WORDS VANESSA FINNIGAN

H

ave you felt strange and out of sorts over the last 18 months? The good news, according to Elizabeth Peru, internationally renowned cosmic guide and author, is that there may be more to the picture than just what’s happening in your life. Whether it’s planets in retrograde, solar flares, super moons or the collective consciousness being cleansed or ramped up, Elizabeth has her intuitive finger 20

on the pulse. In fact, since 2001 she has been regularly sharing her accurate insights, creating an explosion of interest in her work. “My Tip-Off Global Energy Forecasts help people work with the energies, so they realise that it’s not them, there is a bigger energy at play,” she shared. Elizabeth has a beautiful, kind, gentle energy and at the same time, a regal confidence and a universal knowing. However, she was quick to share she leads a normal life in Adelaide and

enjoys connecting with people (rather than being a spiritual hermit). And when it comes to self-care, Elizabeth mentioned it’s things like dancing, gardening and daily physical movement that assist her the most. “Every day I speak to my angelic guides on my walks and you have to have a strong body to manage this energy,” she said. And 20 years ago she started to eat mostly vegetarian food which helped to raise her vibration and over the last few years, she has transitioned to a vegan diet. www.holisticblissmagazine.com

I HAVE ALWAYS WRITTEN FOR EVERYONE AND I INTUIT IT, IT’S NOT LIKE ASTROLOGY WHERE THEY LOOK AT ALIGNMENTS OF PLANETS. I FEEL THE ENERGY AND RELAY IT TO EVERYONE.

h t e b a z Eli Peru I asked her how she came to be an international cosmic guide… As a child, Elizabeth was always very aware (she was conscious of her own birth) and thought something big would come about in her life. She would often blurt out what people were thinking (as a child you have no filter), much to the surprise of the adults around her. “I always had an innate knowing I could read energy really easily, which is good and it also can be confusing at times. So you feel the energy coming off someone but they may deny it and then you question yourself. So it takes time to trust yourself and use discernment about what to say, to whom and when,” she shared. In the late 1990s, Elizabeth

commenced her spiritual journey and enthusiastically attended workshops and meditation groups every week. “I used to love following the patterns of the stars and would read astrology forecasts (even though I have never studied astrology people often think I am an astrologer but I’m not). And I would always look to my own life to see how that would play out. The people in the small meditation groups I attended would talk about their week and I would think to myself, “I know why that’s occurring, it’s due to a Mercury Retrograde. Should I say something? But I didn’t. Then a few weeks later, everyone was commenting on the emotional stuff going on in their lives, so I finally shared my insights with them.” And the general consensus was that Elizabeth was spot-on with her insights and the group members encouraged her to share her wisdom far and wide and with more people. So she began sending out a group email in 2001 to colleagues and they really resonated with the timely information she shared and at the same time Elizabeth was offering workshops and mentoring sessions and had a column in a national magazine. Then by 2003, she was fully devoted to sending out a newsletter where she talked about the energies and shared what was happening globally and that’s when she birthed ‘The Tip-Off Global Energy Forecasts’ through social media and via her blog. By 2014, Elizabeth couldn’t keep up with the demand from the public feedback and requests. And that’s when it developed into a paid subscription

format and that helped to expand things further and replaced the other work she was involved with. “Soul kept saying to me – ‘you’ve got to get your work out to more people’ and with the advent of social media this is when the global work came in and that was always part of my vision. One of my pet peeves when I was a student, was I could never find an energy forecast for the southern hemisphere, it was always written for the US and the UK. I have always written for everyone and I intuit it, it’s not like astrology where they look at alignments of planets. I feel the energy and relay it to everyone. It’s worked from day one and I love being able to reach people all over the planet. My vision is one world, one forecast.” November marks the 16th anniversary of publishing these TipOffs that provide clarity, reassurance and support to so many people around Australia and overseas. “The fact I can have the interaction every week with my audience is important for soul growth and the consciousness on the planet. They can use this information in their lives to their advantage, rather than feeling squashed by it. And it helps people feel a part of everything and that they are not alone which is important at this time on our planet,” said Elizabeth. It’s easy to see why ‘Hay House’ asked to publish her book (Cosmic Messengers) which was released last year. And her book launch has invited more travel over the last year, which has allowed her to be in London for the ‘I Can Do It’ event and ‘Mind Body Spirit’ festival as well as the ‘Conscious Life Expo’ in LA, USA. So what are Elizabeth’s energetic predictions for the rest of this year? She said, “There is a period of unrest this year and we’re wrapping up heavy old Earthly energy and patterns that we’ve been dealing with for decades and/or centuries. We’re experiencing accelerated, almost ‘unprecedented’ personal growth ready for the lightness and optimism of the Age of Aquarius in 2020. 2019 is a year where soul will be leading you.” An inspiring conversation, with an inspired being! www.elizabethperu.com Holistic Bliss | APRIL 2019 |

Change the world WORDS ANNE ALECKSON

I

n this age of great change, when many of us walk this Earth with a hungering to make the world a better place, the most important thing you can do, as an awakening human, is to become the change you want to see. There are so many things that appear to be going wrong in the world today and nobody expects you to fix them all but you can change yourself in relation to one or all of those ‘wrong’ things that are outside of your control. If you want peace, you must release any and all hatred and judgment within you. If you want a better financial system, you must work on your internal relationship with money and worthiness. If you want an end to big Pharma and its control on the medical system, you must remember and practise your own self-healing abilities. If you want a return to loving thy neighbor, you must first love thyself.

If you want an end to world hunger, share what you have. Now you might say “but how will that change the world?” and you might argue for taking action against the machine. But what will that do, except create more disagreement, fighting and stubbornness. We all know that you attract more flies with sugar or in this case, you attract more fight with disagreement. As energy beings, vibrating to your own beat, you’ll have more success changing the world by becoming the vibration of what you desire. You must raise your vibration or energy frequency to the vibration of the world as it will be, when we all know peace and unconditional love, to a time when all human beings and their basic physical and emotional needs are met. Now, what is it that you would change in this current world? Is it an end to the war machine, the ending of humanity’s disregard for

Because YOUR Health is important... we make it easy to manage

the planet, putting a stop to the animal abuse of factory farming, the end of a medical system that keeps us sick and dying, an end to hunger? So many things to change and you cannot do it all. All you can do today is tap into that hunger for change, recognise where you hold that unwanted vibration within you and make the necessary inner change. Become the embodiment of what you desire for the world. Be the change you desire. Stand strong in the vibration of that and proudly emit your uplifting vibration to raise those around you to your vision. You must BE THE CHANGE to see the change. You must embody what you desire in order to create it. ANNE ALECKSON is a speaker, author and channel creating transformation through the vibrational frequency of the spoken and written word.

How your body can WORDS GAYLYN AITKEN

F

rom the moment the single cell is fertilised, our body and nervous system grows and develops towards ideal functioning as a selfhealing and self-righting entity moving in harmony and balance with gravity and Earth rebound. Our body takes in nourishment – oxygen, water and food where it’s converted into energy generated primarily by muscular movements. The energy is then stored throughout the body and used to maintain life. Our muscles act like pumps to move blood and lymph and are a conduit for electrical impulses. When our skeleton is aligned from the feet up and rests within the axis of gravity, our muscles are at the ideal length to use the least amount of effort (energy) for the greatest amount of force. When the skeleton is out of alignment, it becomes subject to the relentless downward pressure of gravity and the muscles contract in an effort to

fulfil your dreams

keep the structure upright and moving, the muscular tension inhibiting flow. The restricted flow of blood, lymph and electrical voltage slows cellular renewal, accelerating the ageing process. From this functional perspective osteoporosis, heart disease, arthritis, nervous system imbalance, learning difficulties, depression, anxiety, digestive and elimination dysfunctions, immunity disorder… can then be approached from a more responsible position without the use of heavy medication and feeling helpless. To fully recover our alignment and reconnect neural pathways to underused muscles and to sustain that recovery, we need to get back into our body, find out what it needs for optimal functioning and provide it with what’s needed. The big picture is a being existing in imbalance and disharmony physically, emotionally and spiritually. The three states are one existing together within

the physical, therefore the simplest and quickest way to recover selfresponsibility is through the vehicle of navigation; our body. The lowest common denominator for being well and keeping well is motion. A body moving in harmony with the rhythm of breath adjusts effortlessly and smoothly to situational changes. Awareness of one’s inner life both physical and psychological, becomes more coherent as the sensory organs return to their original refined precision with free flowing input and appropriate response. We are the creator of our universe, we alone are responsible for our situation… here lies the power and the inspiration for change. Understanding how we function as a human being is just the beginning, putting it into motion is the journey towards fulfilling your potential and living your dreams – your life. www.kahunamist.com

INSPIRATION

Be your

own inspiration

WORDS SPIRI BUHAGIAR

W

ho is it you admire? Who is your inspiration? Throughout our lives many people inspire us. Some inspire us to do better at school, be a better person, follow our passion, be the best we can be. Others inspire us through their personal and professional achievements. There have been many people who have inspired me along my journey and taught me to understand what is valuable in life. I name Martin Luther King as one of them. No matter what he endured, he had a passion that could not be thwarted, he inspired people to believe in themselves, to know that by working together, so much could be achieved. We can be inspired by individuals or the sheer beauty of the sunshine, the laughter of a child, poetry, the

love between two people, the waves breaking on the shore or perhaps being in a forest where there is so much to inspire us when we open our eyes and take a look around. Life itself is an inspiration; to live life, to enjoy life, to be happy, to be healthy. If you want to live a life well lived, if you want to be happy and inspired but cannot find your mojo or inspiration, then Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) may be the answer for you. Over the past 18 months, I have worked with many individuals. Some want inspiration to move forward in their lives, others need inspiration to achieve what their limiting beliefs tell them is not possible. Some cannot understand why they procrastinate, and others just want to find their mojo and

motivation so they could inspire others to be their best. So, if you’re a sales manager or manager and want to inspire your team to be the very best they can be, yet find there’s one ingredient missing, RTT can help uncover how, why, where and when you may have taken on a limited belief that is stopping you from being inspirational! If you’re curious about this, please give me a quick call for a free consultation. I’m even happy to pop in and see you at your office if you live on the Sunshine Coast, or have a Skype consultation with you should you live elsewhere. www.rapidmindtherapies.com.au Email: spiri@rapidmindtherapies.com.au Phone: 0418 775 849

Inspiration, intention and intuition:

3 magical phases of creation

WORDS RAELENE BYRNE

T

hese three intangible forces when worked with together, offer a powerful way to become an alchemist, or magician, or creator. We often separate these three aspects, making one more important than another. For true change, expansion and evolution of self, your life, your business, your world, bringing these three together to weave potent new ways in life, is what many of us are remembering or working with in 2019. The frequency and intelligence of inspiration is available to us constantly. It circumnavigates our awareness, gently offering the opportunity to see or hear the potential, or perhaps a possibility that is available for us to bring to life. The moment of illumination, the bright spark idea, generates a level of excitement, as we are shown something new, or an answer to an issue, or possibly a whole different scenario to

where we are. Inspirations speak to each of us, it is a whisper to our soul. If we are tuned in, we can allow that flow to reveal itself, if we are blocked, busy, or disconnected, we spend time looking for that way to find this seemingly elusive inspiration that people talk about. The best way to allow inspiration to speak directly, to merge with our consciousness, is to be in places of spaciousness. Hanging out in nature, the wilderness, places where the purity of life is a constant, no matter where you look, what you hear, or what you feel. We hear so much about taking yourself into nature these days, and one of the profound benefits is having space for inspiration to land, to be heard, to be acknowledged. So often we have quick glimpses, but we are so consumed with our daily obligations, the moment

passes as just another thought. When we choose to sit in space, in nature, we are quiet, we are still, we have the chance to absorb, refuel and align with the motivation of inspired energy. Once we have the intuitive feeling on an inspired idea, the next step is to bring it to life. This is where the power of intention fits in. We set a clear and purposeful intention for something to be made real, aligned with, birthed to physicality; whether a new idea, piece of art, new book, creative idea to grow a business, perhaps a new way of being or contributing to the life you are living. Once we create the intention, we set in motion conscious actions to align with what we have allowed inspiration to show us, and our intuition to give us the go ahead. www.raelenebyrne.com

What are you

thinking?

WORDS KATH ORMAN

Excerpt from the soon to be released book, ‘Attitude, Abundance & Action’

W

e all have little voices in our head constantly chattering away, usually with any number of opposing points of view. I often imagine a little angel sitting on one shoulder and a little devil on the other. Of course, the angel is positive and uplifting, and the devil is full of doom and gloom and negativity. It is so easy to allow the force of negative vibes to overpower the positive. Most of the time, we are blissfully unaware this is happening. Even when I decided to write this book, there was quite a dialogue going on in my mind. “What makes you think you can write a book?” said the little devil. “Of course you can write a book,” said the angel, “it is all inside you waiting to be shared. You KNOW you can do it!”

Now, I want you to pause and consider what you have been thinking and telling yourself today? Did you bounce out of bed and automatically say, “Wow! This is a wonderful day and magic will happen”? I’m guessing you probably didn’t! It is more likely that as soon as you woke up, your mind went straight to the list of all the things that have to be done today – make the school lunches, iron clothes, make the bed, put on the washing, pay the bills, blah, blah, blah. Am I correct? One of my many favourite sayings is, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”. It is powerful to realise you cannot change what happened yesterday? You may keep hoping for a better past, but it is not going to happen. You only have power over whether you let something impact your day or let it go and face the new day with strength, courage and a sense of expectation that wonderful things will

happen. While you plan and dream about tomorrow, today is the only day you have to be part of NOW. As I’m sure you’re aware, the precious moments of today are a gift and they can be taken away at any time. As I write these words, I pause and look out to witness the most beautiful sunset. Nature’s magnificence. A moment ago it was noon and now the sun is going down. How did I spend those hours? I was immersed in writing, allowing my words to fill the pages, in the hope that if at least one person receives the message they need right now, I will have made a difference.

Discovering the

I

Bosnian pyramids and further scientific investigation was needed. Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids has become the most active archaeological site in the world and attracts tens of thousands of tourists every year in Visoko, Bosnia-Herzegovina. There are hundreds of testimonies about the beneficial effects of visiting the prehistoric Underground Labyrinth Ravne, which have been carefully recorded and documented by the ‘Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun’ Foundation. Some fragments are published on the official website of the Foundation: www.bosnianpyramid.org. The expert teams on the energy phenomena (physicists, electrical and communication engineers, sound engineers) have confirmed that the pyramid is, in fact, a giant energy amplifier (intensifier) producing various types of energy. The revolutionary conclusion of the exploration of the pyramids in Visoko, is that the purpose of the pyramids is not to represent the tomb for a dead human body, king or pharaoh, in fact, they

t has been a controversial topic, but did you know the most active pyramid site in the world is not in Egypt, like previously thought, it is in Bosnia-Herzegovina? Dr Sam Osmanagich is a businessman and social scientist who discovered the Bosnian pyramids and has been in charge of the project since 2005. Having won several awards for his research, he is now travelling the world sharing his knowledge about ‘pyramid energy’. Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids represents the biggest complex of pyramidal structures in the world. It consists of Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (with its height of over 220 metres is bigger than Cheops Pyramid), Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon (190 metres), Pyramid of Bosnian Dragon (90 metres), Temple of Mother Earth and Pyramid of Love. Fifty-five leading scientists from 13 countries concluded, during the ‘First International Scientific Conference’ on Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids in August 2008, that the Bosnian pyramids are an archaeological phenomenon

were built for the communities of living people, intended to last for thousands of years. The Underground Labyrinth Ravne was constructed 30,000 years ago as an integral part of the pyramid complex in Visoko. The high presence of the ‘pyramid energy’ is recorded inside the tunnels, as well as the high concentration of negative ions which has a beneficial effect on health because the ions clean the atmosphere from dust, raise the oxygen levels in our blood and lower the number of viruses and bacteria. The negative ion concentration is 100 times higher than in the cities, and 10 times higher than, for example, in the forest of the Igman Mountain near Sarajevo, which is usually referenced as a healthy environment. The Underground Labyrinth Ravne and the archaeological sites at the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun are open for the public all year.

What is

Soul Life Recall Regression?

WORDS TONI REILLY

S

oulLife Recall Regression is a noninvasive, gentle healing technique which accesses the sub-conscious through a relaxed meditative state which emphasises self-awareness as a means to powerful and lasting recovery. When I began regressing my clients 12 years ago, I always centred around past life exploration. Over the years it all shifted organically to include other variations as well. Those variations included: • a passed-over loved one appearing to communicate; • glimpses into the future; • recall to earlier times in current life; • a visit to the between life phase where we prepare for incarnation; • or a visit home, the most powerful space of all, producing a powerful and potent natural medicine elicited from pure energy. These variations are why I call my hybrid version of past life regression, SoulLife Recall Regression. This completely natural process facilitates communication with our soul. Our soul has the answers

to every question we are curious about. SRR facilitates discovery of information needed to free ourselves from emotional, physical and mental symptoms. The individual’s soul reveals what they need to become aware of, to invoke the precise prescription of knowledge and understanding required to answer their questions or relieve them of symptoms. Recalling memories is not about dredging up the past, they actually hold profound knowledge of core experiences. This sets the starting point to unravel what we do and why, in relation to behaviours, fears, phobias, even patterns in relationships that can plague our lives. Discovering that we chose to come and incarnate on earth, brings relief and helps to identify as being a volunteer, willingly participating, rather than a helpless victim. Catharsis reveals the purpose of pain and trauma at the core and healing occurs when that knowledge comes into conscious awareness.

Regression is never to berate anyone for acts from previous incarnations. By acquiring insight of who we have been and what we have experienced in the past, empowers us to use that knowledge and comprehend aspects of the person we are today. This therapy transforms ideals, establishing a new upgraded perspective on personal values and beliefs, by highlighting self-awareness, as people step up and take responsibility for themselves through investigation of their circumstances. Like: • why they ended up with these parents or • this health issue or • why they were abused or • why they attract the same types in relationships. SRR invokes personal evolution resulting in a confident, content individual who feels in charge of their life.

Earthing: The answer to a great night’s sleep WORDS LAURA GRAHAM

F

rom relieving night-time pains and niggles, helping to stop snoring and calming an anxious mind, Earthing is the answer to a great night’s sleep. Earthing – or grounding as it is often called – simply means having direct skin contact with the Earth and the discovery that doing so brings many health benefits, including a great night’s sleep! Most of us carry a positive charge in our body thanks to a build-up of free radicals. Free radicals are important in the fight against disease and the healing process but once their job is done, the positively-charged free radicals need to be neutralised by negatively-charged electrons. If they are left to build up, due to a lack of freely available negative electrons in our body, they ‘steal’ electrons from healthy tissue. This process causes inflammation in the body which can lead to pain, discomfort, serious health issues and sleep problems.

30

30.indd 1

| APRIL 2019 | Holistic Bliss

The most effective way of delivering electrons into the body is connecting to the negatively-charged Earth. However, in modern life, most of us are disconnected from the Earth. Our bodies are starved of electrons and inflammation builds up. One of the major benefits of Earthing is improved sleep. If you have any kind of pain or niggle; if you snore or have breathing issues at night; or find yourself waking up several times a night to use the bathroom, the chances are these symptoms may be caused by inflammation somewhere in your body. Earthing regularly or sleeping earthed on an Earthing sheet, significantly reduces the inflammation, allowing your body the full night’s sleep it requires to rejuvenate, replenish and prepare for the day ahead. Many people find it takes them a long time to fall asleep, their mind whirring with to-do lists and what-ifs. This is often caused by a high level of the stress hormone cortisol which

affects the body’s circadian rhythm and makes it difficult to fall asleep. Studies have shown that sleeping earthed can stabilise the release of cortisol and increase the release of melatonin, an important hormone that regulates sleep. Earthing is as easy as stepping outside, kicking off your shoes and having direct skin contact with the ground. Grass and sand are ideal – the damper the better! If you can do this every day, even for a short time, your body will thank you for it! There is also a range of indoor earthing products which allow you to Earth while you work, exercise, relax and while you sleep. LAURA GRAHAM is the owner of Sydneybased company Earthing Oz and spends her days sharing the wonderful health benefits of Earthing as well as educating on the health dangers of electromagnetic radiation. Earthing Oz distributes a range of indoor Earthing products and radiation protection products. www.earthingoz.com.au

ur brain communicates with Universal threads of intelligence to ultimately evolve from the duality model of ‘monkey-mind’ into whole-brain. ‘Holistequine’ books and programs teach us how to balance these presently fragmented brain hemispheres. By using the left intellectual brain as an

information gathering centre while simultaneously deferring to the higher mind, we then make balanced decisions using logic AND wisdom. We were meant to live life in balance with nature. As cavemen, if we survived the hunt, we would return home and enjoy life in the natural world of alpha.

Over time, however, this changed with the agricultural and industrial revolution, where to compete, we began to function primarily using the fight/flight frequency of beta. We lost the art of trusting our instincts and we ‘disconnected’. We offer practical tools, insights and philosophies to understand the science of interspecies healing in order to reconnect. Our survival will not just depend on how fast we can run or our ‘cunningness’, we will also need honed emotional and mental reflexes. How we do it The two sides of our brain vibrate at different wave lengths representing our journey through opposites yin/yang etc. However with an understanding of epigenetics we can now bridge the gap.

The Metazone, Holistequine’s term for a state above duality, is a frequency corresponding to a third level of consciousness… i.e. the observer (natural to our horses)… The Law of Entrainment states that ‘a higher frequency will prevail’ or that the lower frequency is synchronised into the higher one. ‘Holistequine’ has understood this phenomenon further to include horses. Meaning that when we entrain the lower frequency (of the human ego) into a higher one (the higher frequency of nature/‘Holistequine’ horses) the ‘problems’, disease states etc that previously sat within the lower frequency (of the ego) will also ‘entrain’ or dissipate. When scientists/doctors don’t understand something they call it ‘symptoms of a disorder’, label it a ‘problem’, claim it as their own and prescribe medication. But what if ‘disorders’ such as autism, Aspergers, ADHD, bi-polar etc are simply indicators of evolutionary changes in human consciousness and the result of emerging neurological changes that affect us all? Our research into vibrational medicine and animal communication over the past 28 years suggests, YES! ‘Spectrums’ will soon ideally be understood as creative opportunities.

WE WERE MEANT TO LIVE LIFE IN BALANCE WITH NATURE. AS CAVEMEN, IF WE SURVIVED THE HUNT, WE WOULD RETURN HOME AND ENJOY LIFE IN THE NATURAL WORLD OF ALPHA.

In children’s programs especially, we have seen how easily our horse aligns with the higher vibration of ‘service’, thus revealing the DNA of a person’s potential. For the future, we now need to be training people with a passion for animals, energy medicine and interspecies healing. Practitioner Training 5-Day Intensive, 10-14 May 2019, Cooroy, Qld.

Miracle healing (not really), just common sense! WORDS WARREN ROSE

P

eople often ask me, how does a cellular chemistry analysis reveal so much? It seems miraculous and too good to be true! People are often perplexed because they are surprised to learn of the many hidden imbalances located on their test results. They are even more surprised to learn that all their symptoms and medical labels are nothing more than an energy loss occurring in their body. The chemistry analysis pinpoints where the loss is and why. The chemistry analysis has two distinct parts. The first part locates the source of any illness with surprising accuracy, which is my job, as the practitioner. The second part of the equation is the restoration program that corrects the cellular chemistry and restores the lost energy. This is the client’s job, with my support. By testing and measuring the human saliva and urine, we see what has altered or imbalanced the cellular

chemistry, and then we know how to correct it. Measuring the cellular chemistry is so convenient because it takes the guesswork out of locating the source of any imbalance or illness. When the cellular chemistry is tested, it creates a seven-number mathematical equation that forms a multidimensional ‘picture’ of the health of the client. When we take remedies or medication without knowing our chemistry state, we can force our chemistry into an alternative range and often symptoms seem to disappear. However, if we stop taking the remedy, the previous symptoms often return, usually with more force. This is because the source of the problem has not been addressed, which is a nutritional deficiency from poor digestive assimilation that creates an energy loss in the body. When I see the chemistry numbers from the analysis, I know exactly what foods and food supplements are needed

and what to avoid in order to ‘tune’ the body into a correct healing range for that person’s unique cellular chemistry. This means the body can now pick up the nutrients from the food eaten and this creates a gain in energy. It is the energy that does the healing in the body, not a remedy, nor me as the practitioner. There is nothing wrong with healthy remedies, but first we need to know what they will do to the existing cellular chemistry, so that we know what direction our energy levels are going. We need to know if the body is gaining in energy or losing energy through what we put in our mouths. Illness, fatigue and disease relate to a deficiency in the body’s energy supply. Failure to address this principle, is the primary reason why so many people do not fully recover from illness or go on to develop serious health conditions. www.naturetherapyclinic.net

Creating change as a GP WORDS DR CARLOS SANCHEZ

S

ince childhood, I have been inspired by people close to me, from my father, to the friends that I have met along the way, who have helped me to steer my life in the right direction. I think it is essential to surround yourself with people who have different views, are lateral thinkers, and question the status quo. If this can happen in each field, including medicine, humanity can evolve. I try to practise what I preach; maintaining a healthy diet, adopting a regular exercise program, looking at stress in a different way, being kind, connecting with others and comforting someone in distress… This is what the role of a GP should be. As a doctor, I try not only to heal my patients, but influence those who

know me to live in a simple way, being a caring and compassionate person, looking after the environment and creating a better world around us. My partner and I have visitors regularly, and I have to say, I feel very proud of having motivated a lot of them, giving them ideas, in the same way others have done for me. I think in my profession, I have the opportunity to inspire people to do the right thing. I really love what I do, and never thought that I would be living the way I am. When I was little, I wanted to be an artist (a painter), so how did I end up being a medical doctor?

Thinking of my different mentors throughout my life, I can say they always have been a ‘little different’ and perhaps that is what has inspired me to try to improve myself, and reflect on things and decisions that I have made along the way. I say, go with the flow and choose what feels the right path for you, as long as you have good intentions and don’t cause problems to others. Life has ups and downs; that is the way it is, but take the challenges and learn from them. Then look back and laugh about it. Enjoy the ride and I hope I motivated and inspired you in a positive way.

Magnesium:

are you getting

enough?

WORDS SABINE SCHROEDER, Formulator at Spajar Skincare

Nurturing yourself is not selfish. It is essential. Magnesium is a natural powerhouse. It is considered one of the four most important minerals to keep us fit. Found in our tissue and bones, magnesium helps to regulate over 700 bio-chemical processes in the body, every single day! From generating energy in every single cell, to supporting a steady heart rhythm, maintaining your heart health, your insulin production and the absorption of calcium, it also supports your adrenal system: your body manages anxiety and stress by releasing magnesium to naturally suppress the effects of the stress hormone cortisol. Magnesium even increases your capacity to make serotonin and dopamine; neuro-transmitters that we tend to lack when suffering from anxiety and depression. As a relaxant, magnesium eases not just mental, but also physical tension and stiff muscles. It is an important electrolyte – the more active you are, the more you need to fight lactic acid buildup; the cause for your muscles being

tight and sore. It naturally improves sleep patterns by promoting your production of melatonin. Supporting recovery even right on the level of DNA repair, magnesium also gives you more access to the all-important antioxidant and smart-ager glutathione. Without the amazing mineral, our skin would be subject to more free radical damage and inflammation, which ultimately lead to wrinkling and skin damage. By now you get the picture – we use a lot of it! But here’s the catch: we do not store much. How does our body get magnesium? Previously this wasn’t something we needed to think about – there was enough magnesium in the wholegrains, leafy greens, beans, peas and nuts we consumed. However, this essential element is only found in these foods if it is available in the soil in the first place. Due to mass-farming and overharvesting, our soil is now mineral deficient. This greatly reduces the overall magnesium content of our food. We can’t rely on our food anymore as the main source of our daily

magnesium, no matter how healthy you eat. We must supplement daily. Be aware that not everyone experiences noticeable deficiency symptoms like cramping, restless legs or involuntary twitches. It is estimated that at least 80% of today’s western population is magnesium deficient. Daily supplementation The gentlest, fastest and most efficient way to get enough magnesium daily is to bypass your digestive system. Use your biggest organ, your skin instead to absorb it topically within minutes, without discomfort or stinging. Oral modes of supplementation can result in a laxative effect because of the sheer amount of stomach acid needed to ‘get to the goods’. Even worse, you may also lose up to two-thirds of bio-available magnesium during the digestive process. Instead apply magnesium on your skin in the morning to deliciously kick-start your day. Reapply for additional support during high activity or high stress periods. www.spajar.com.au

Living free WORDS REBECCA LEE

sit here completely inspired after a deep seven days of intensive family constellation training. It’s the first time I have deep dived into more constellation training in a number of years. Family constellation offers the opportunity to explore the burdens that we unintentionally take on from an early age from members of previous generations in our families. Bert Hellinger’s work is nothing short of inspiring. From the moment I came into contact with this modality, I knew I had discovered ‘truth’. It beautifully brings together all the fields I have been drawn to in my career – mediumship, shamanic healing, energy healing – and lets them magically dance, play and sing together to bring about profound healings. This week I was fortunate enough to do some of my own work and I came to realise two things: 1. That my own blocks around money, business, and feeling unworthy go deep back into my ancestry with the deportation of ancestors to Australia

in honour of my ancestors from Britain, for crimes – due to starvation – that led to desperation to steal to feed their families. These people were punished with consequences completely disproportionate to their crime. They were pulled away from their families, who were left starving, and taken to another land across the other side of the world. The pain, anger and grief from this ripples down the generations and manifests in many ways. I have felt this in my bones, and discovered that my deep sense of not knowing where I belong and who I am is a consequence of this in my family history, as well as struggles with taking money, due to feeling bad for my ancestors who were left starving. 2. My bouts of depression stem from my father’s and grandfathers’ experience in the war. Not only do I feel, on a soul level, a deep sadness for them, but also for all the victims of the wars in which they were involved.

This is deep soul work. I have done a lot of work but these things have not come up before. What is ready will reveal itself. I feel free on a level not felt before, to live in wellness and abundance in their honour. If you would like to discover the underlying soul entanglements you may have that are manifesting in your life, blocking the flow of love, money or wellness, please come along and explore in my next ‘Healing with the Ancestors’ workshop, where you can learn how to free yourself through family constellation and shamanic ritual. REBECCA LEE is a Family Constellation Practitioner and has explored this field of work for almost a decade. She assists people to heal with their ancestors through constellation and shamanic ritual. She is an intuitive coach on the Sunshine Coast and encourages people to unlock their blocks to love.

My trip to

Antarctica

put it all in

WORDS KATHERINE CHRISTIE

I

have recently returned from a journey by boat to Antarctica. I was asked by interested parties, why there, why Antarctica? The short answer was “I don’t know”. Well I didn’t, I didn’t know at first. As it turns out, the entire threeweek journey was worth the one glorious day in Paradise Bay, Antarctica. I had a vague notion of what I thought I would see, but nothing in comparison to the reality that awaited me. The magnificent brilliant, bright sunlight was shining upon a glittering magical white, and all the shades of blue, other-worldly landscape. It was simply breathtaking. And there was an abundance of dolphins and whales to be seen, along with the characteristic bob of groups of penguins moving past the ship. Paradise Bay was so inspiring, yet inspiring in the simplest way. The way that makes you feel grateful to be alive. To live and breathe and be able to enjoy a place as magnificent as Antarctica.

Glorious nature is a common component of the most moving memories I have. And nature exists irrespective of whether I am there to see it or not. I love the connection nature can bring, to make you feel that you are a part of something greater and more powerful, while at the same time you are separate and small. I find inspiration everywhere, from the sound of the birds overhead to examining roses in my front lawn that need pruning. Anything is possible at any time. You just need to step forward with intention, and the world of opportunity awaits. I feel I live a magical life. I challenge myself most days to do something I love, create something, start something; do some good in this world. I draw inspiration and just sit in that moment with loving acceptance and thanks. When you approach life in this manner, it is much easier to take

perspective!

setbacks and disappointments directly (and more gracefully as well). Someone, something or an event will upset, disappoint or hurt you at some point. I will wonder how I can turn the issue around, whilst simultaneously understanding that a magical solution I have not thought of, lies waiting to appear. ‘Inspiration’ is like a resource we can draw upon to help us navigate life. Sometimes this isn’t easy. We all struggle at times with our human experience. But I challenge you to approach your problems head on (one at a time is best), yet be open and flexible to a different, better, outcome. Be inspired to do something differently, approach a problem in a completely new way, step outside of your usual habits, be daring, be bold! You will be surprised to see where this approach can take you. And go to Antarctica, you really need to see it. www.sweetnessskullsandlight.com

WORDS CAROL VINCENT and TANYA MAUDSLEY

W

e are a mother and daughter team, guided to connect all souls back to Mother Earth in a space completely free of responsibilities and distractions of modern life. Together we facilitate retreats in a sacred space, Zamia Wilderness Camp. We acknowledge and respect the custodians of this land, the Bidjara people; their stories, living culture and Elders. ‘Imba Na’ means ‘listen now’ in Bidjara language. A vast tangle of sandstone cliffs, gorges and springs, Zamia Wilderness Camp is nestled in 20,000 acres of unique wilderness forming one side of the iconic Carnarvon Gorge. A wildlife lovers’ paradise, this untouched ecosystem is a refuge for an incredible variety of wildlife, including many rare, endangered species. During your stay, you can participate in guided bushwalks or solo adventures.

The facilities are completely offgrid and carbon-positive, minimising the environmental impact of your stay. With no phone or internet service, you will experience a digital detox, freeing you from constant connectivity and electromagnetic radiation. After spending time immersed in nature, becoming aware of every action’s ripple-on effect, you are able to bring through a new level of mindfulness to everyday life. You can appreciate simplicity and evaluate your attachment to material possessions, as well as mental and emotional clutter. You are supported at every stage of your inner journey, learning techniques and using tools for personal empowerment. It is a time to honour yourself with the transformative experience of restful contemplation in a harmonious environment with profound peace and silence.

Nurturing is the essence to everything on offer here, especially the food. We use the very best organic and biodynamic produce paired with the unique flavours of native bush foods. You will have the opportunity to connect deeply with Mother Earth, grounding and earthing, in this unique, private wilderness location where retreat participants will see no other people during their stay. This is the real jewel at the heart of the retreat! When you are free from distractions, you are able to remove the masks you wear and explore your innermost thoughts and feelings. You are then held in a safe space of love and nurturing, curating your days to meet your needs. We would love to share our special space with you!

How can WORDS MARITA MASON

O

ne in five Australians have arthritis. The supplements commonly used for arthritis merely act as band-aids and don’t get to the root of the problem. So what’s the solution? Research now shows that the body heals itself via the migration of stem cells from the bone marrow. Damaged cells release a compound that calls stem cells to the damage. In arthritis, stem cells can become new cartilage and bone cells. The rate of natural decline of stem cells in our bloodstream as we age is 45% by the age of 35, 50% by the age of 50, and 90% by the age of 65, which is why the signs of ageing increase so dramatically from that age.

adult stem cells

help arthritis?

How can we activate our stem cells naturally? One of the most efficient ways of releasing more stem cells into our circulation is to take stem cell nutrition, a nutritional food that supports the release and activity of our own stem cells. Scientists have discovered that an aqua botanical from Lake Klamath, Oregon, known as AFA, is the most potent form of stem cell nutrition. This is now available as a supplement and one dose can release 5-9 million (34%) of your own stem cells. Not only can these stem cells become cartilage and muscle cells, but also brain, kidney, liver, skin, heart, bone, pancreas, thyroid or eye cells – whatever the body needs to repair and regenerate.

My own experience: After arthroscopic surgery on my knee, my surgeon told me I could end up in a wheelchair if I continued playing tennis. I’m now 68 and have no pain in my knees after taking stem cell nutrition, no sign of arthritis and I play tennis four times a week! Adult stem cells are the only known source for rebuilding the body Stem cell nutrition is a new frontier in nutritional medicine and unprecedented in its ability to maximise health and wellness. It allows the body to maintain superior function, helps build the immune system and systematically fights chronic conditions. Email: marita@maritamason.com

T

he strangest thing has awakened me this week. I watched my friend dance on a reality TV show called Dancing With The Stars. Sounds normal enough until you watch the stars dance and hear their story. The vulnerability and fragility was not what I was expecting. I’m not a crier however I found myself crying and I felt the pride and fear of a parent watching their child in a school concert. Dancing does evoke fear and embarrassment for most of us… I wonder why that is? Is it that it exposes the soul? Your inner song? I found myself so deeply inspired by the bravery of the contestants. Drawing inspiration from the bravery of their actions that comes with

having to stand up and expose parts of themselves that usually is kept to their circle. Being vulnerable. Allowing themselves to be truly seen by others. They have to face the fear of rejection, the fear of not being voted for, the fear of failing and going home, remembering the steps, fear of being ridiculed and bullied online and the repetitive rigours of daily practice and not feeling worthy to be on the show. This is inspiring to watch. So, for me inspiration comes not from the great but from those who feel the insecurities and vulnerability and still stand with shaking knees. Your dance is the music of the soul and I don’t think I’m that brave. You’re my inspiration. www.ecotan.com.au

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

Flower essences with animals - done different! WORDS CLAIRE OATS

T

he healing properties of plants and flowers are renowned, and in particular, the use of flower essences in animal healing is rising in popularity. Flower essences are a natural and effective way to deal with an animal’s emotional stress. The main symptom of emotional stress in an animal is changes in behaviour, and this is the first sign that something needs to be addressed with your animal at either a physical or emotional level. Each flower essence has a different property that addresses a different issue, but the main problem when working with animals, especially rescue animals, is that you have to be able to identify the emotion that is causing the problem, in order to select the appropriate essence. Are you an animal behaviour expert? Can you confidently diagnose the issue? This is the main reason the use of flower essences often doesn’t have the desired effect, simply because you haven’t been able to match the correct flower essence to the issue on a vibrational level. Here is an example. Fear is a common issue affecting animals, and

it causes a wide range of symptoms and reactions. Knowing the origin of the fear is key to being able to treat it properly. Is it a fear of being vulnerable? A fear of getting it wrong? A fear of losing control? A fear of not being safe? Each of these are very different aspects of fear. A dog who is scared of fireworks could either have a fear of being vulnerable or a fear of losing control over its environment. Both are very different issues that just happen to be showing the same symptom i.e. shaking and cowering, but the flower essence used to treat the issue would be different in each case. If you mis-diagnose the core problem, the result is greatly reduced. At Animal Energy Therapies we use kinesiology muscle testing to determine which two meridians are compromised by the emotional stress. The relationship between these two meridians pin-points the exact issue. Meridian stress, emotions and the

associated flower essences have been mapped by Richard Utt, a kinesiologist who pioneered the field, and using this method to fine tune the use of flower essences with animals, improves the results by providing a more targeted, natural solution. We have developed a brand new online course to help pet owners and animal practitioners integrate clear stressful emotions whilst gaining a better understanding of the issue.

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

Stress-free social walks WORDS DR RENEE O’DUHRING

A

s animal lovers, we hope our dogs will get along with other dogs. Unfortunately, this is not the reality for many. Doggy confrontation can make the walking experience far from stress-free! So how can we make walkies peaceful and easy? I have three strategies you can implement for a stress-free walking experience, whether there are reactive dogs around you or you have one yourself. But first, let me share an interesting story. I was walking my very social dog Shanti through a night market. Shanti’s purpose in life is to meet and greet everyone, whether human, canine, feline, avian, reptilian or other. So when out and about, I remain vigilant in case her amorous ways are not appreciated. Shanti encountered a few dogs at the market. All were in uncomfortable equipment, on tight leads, sitting at their owners’ feet while their distracted humans talked to stall holders. All three growled and snapped as Shanti went to say hello. Because I was watching closely, I had her long leash reeled in short enough to prevent contact with the other dogs. What I found curious was the

dog owners turned to me AFTER their dog had responded in this way and said, “Sorry, my dog doesn’t like other dogs”. Now Shanti is a very peaceable girl and this kind of behaviour doesn’t really faze her. She just retreats and moves off quietly, hoping to find another friendlier dog further ahead. But not every dog would respond in such a peaceful manner. So, what can you do if you have a reactive dog or encounter reactive dogs that make your walking experience stressful? Like everything with dogs, it is important to understand them and set them up for success. Did you notice any mistakes the dog guardians I encountered made? I identified three straight away: 1. Using uncomfortable walking equipment 2. Choosing to take their reactive dog to a busy, highly trafficked environment 3. Not paying attention to their reactive dog! These are the three things you can control when out walking your dog and will help you both have a more peaceful walking experience.

Every dog owner should invest in comfortable walking equipment so their dog can feel at ease when out and about. Choose quiet, low traffic areas to walk, where there are lots of great smells to explore. If you can get your dog’s nose on the ground, they quickly become calm and at ease. Finally, be a good pack leader. Observe your dog and surroundings. Screen for potential danger. And if a perceived ‘threat’ is encountered, respond proactively by moving your dog away at a safe distance. This method of walking is a ‘mindfulness-based stress reduction’ for us, and our dogs. If you make these changes, the walking experience should quickly become peaceful and easy for you both.
