hat is true wealth? Is it about grabbing as much money as you can, buying houses, cars and ‘things’? Does that make you ‘superior’ or ‘successful’? We have so many ideas about what being wealthy and successful means and what if it’s a very personal experience and journey? Growing up I remember my Dad being preoccupied with making millions and being successful and I saw him struggle with money for most of his life and so I remember as a kid thinking, “Well, I’m going to make sure money doesn’t make me miserable.” I removed money desires from my thoughts and focussed on helping and counselling people, at times taking fairly low paying jobs and I even counselled people for free. At one point, I also gave away everything I owned and meditated full-time for three months. I thought being truly free and without

material desires would be the key to it all. I look back now and am so grateful for everything I experienced and at the same time, I realise, I was exploring one side of the ‘money polarity’. Somewhere I thought I was more spiritual and closer to ‘freedom’ if I was living minimalistically. There is no right and wrong in terms of how much money you have and at the same time I have realised that allowing myself to receive different experiences (including having money) is a place of freedom and choice. When I am being ME, I feel like the wealthiest person in the world, change is possible and money flows more easily too. The connection with my Dad helped me to realise money doesn’t have the power to make me miserable, only my thoughts and beliefs can do that. What if money was energy and could create and generate a different reality and transform lives?

um and I had worked up a serious appetite after spending the morning shopping and taking advantage of the sales. We often spend Fridays together and usually support the local cafés in our area; both of us had been interested in investigating the Paleo Café to discover exactly what this latest trend in clean eating was all about. Paleo comes from the word Palaeolithic and is based on the idea of getting back to basics and adopting the simplicity of the food habits of our caveman ancestors. This means avoiding foods such as grains, sugars, dairy and highly processed foods that can be hard to digest. The paleo diet philosophy has been flooding my social network site lately with loads of recipes, for example, raw chocolate fudge and cauliflower rice with pork belly, plus health magazines

are writing about the advantages of the diet for weight loss. So you can understand why we were curious to see if the paleo food measured up in taste and flavour. We arrived at our local Paleo Café around one o’clock – friendly staff and the aroma of coffee greeted us as we walked into a very modern and brightly coloured café. Once we were seated, the lovely staff promptly took our order for lunch including our drink requests. You will find the menu caters for breakfast through to dinner plus they have a dessert cabinet at the counter filled with yummy healthy choices. Our lunch was delicious! The cob salad with chicken was fresh and full of flavour and a generous portion size for the price. The combination of sweet potato, roast pumpkin and sunflower seeds worked really well together with the succulent chicken. I felt satisfied

without the need for a bowl of rice or bread roll with the meal but they do offer sides such as sweet potato chips with lemon aioli. I really enjoyed the full flavoured coffee and you can choose from a variety of options for milk including coconut, almond, lactose free, full cream and skim milk. Interestingly, the café sells pre-made meals for you to buy which can ease the stress of cooking at home and offers a healthier alternative to fast food takeout. Whether you desire a quick coffee with a guilt-free dessert or a hearty lunch/dinner, the Paleo Café offers fresh and tasty food in a friendly atmosphere. They also have a comprehensive retail health food and skincare section. There are twelve Paleo Cafés around Australia and growing fast, with over six cafés based in Qld. For more information visit:

Spiced Salmon Tagine with Garlic and Honey RECIPE VICKI TAYLOR, Queen of Spice

Saffron Saffron, aka “Red Gold” is the most expensive spice in the world by weight and at the same time, the most sought after spice. The saffron crocus flower is purple in colour and produces one three-pronged stigma. It’s unclear where it originated from but research suggests it was either Greece or somewhere in south-west Asia. The aroma and taste of saffron is hard to describe but I think it smells like hay and the taste is a bit woody-floral like… (if that makes sense!) A-grade saffron mainly comes from Iran and Kashmir. Beware of cheap saffron – if the price is too good to be true then it probably is! Corn husks are commonly died red and sold as saffron and don’t smell or taste of anything. Use saffron in paellas, bouillabaisses, tagines or even sweet dishes like custards and cakes. Dissolve the threads in warm water and let them infuse for about 20 minutes before using. The longer you leave, the richer the colour. A ‘pinch’ of saffron will go a long way and will serve four to six people.

Serves 4 Ingredients: 4 salmon fillets, skin removed (approx 14cm x 8cm each) 2 cloves of garlic, finely diced 1 tbsp runny honey 4 kaffir lime leaves 1 tsp RHCP Ras el Hanout spice blend 1 pinch of saffron (approx 10-12 threads) Salt and pepper for seasoning Method: 1. Turn on your BBQ (one with a lid is best or you can use an oven at 220°C). 2. Mix the saffron threads in 20ml of hot water (but not boiling) and let it infuse for 10 minutes. 3. Cut the salmon fillets into cubes, approx 3cm each.

4. Mix honey, garlic, Ras el Hanout and saffron water in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Add the salmon cubes and gently mix. Leave to marinade for about half an hour. 5. Place a kaffir lime leaf in the bottom of each individual tagine and divide equal amounts of the cubed salmon on top. Only use some of the liquid in each, not all as the tagine will produce more moisture anyway. 6. Place tagines into BBQ or oven and cook for 7 mins or until cooked. Don’t overcook as you don’t want the salmon to dry out. 7. Serve immediately with some spiced Moroccan condiments. YUM!

At Paleo Café we are proud to be different. We adopt the Paleo philosophy which is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. The Paleo lifestyle is about eating and living as Mother Nature intended. That means eating a good variety of lean meat, seafood, eggs, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and berries. Avoid eating dairy, grains, sugars and preservatives which our bodies were not designed to digest. Make sure you get enough sleep, exercise, play time and laughter!

Paleo is 100% gluten free and it has been around for 2.5 million years so it is not a fad!

The Happy Berry... for you to get more out of life WORDS WARREN STEWART, PhD, Research Nutritionist


icknamed the “happy berry”, or goji, consumers find that when they consume them they feel a sense of wellbeing. This makes you smile right? While it is the case that goji berries are indeed a superfood providing a huge array of essential nutrients, they do indeed contain one of the highest densities of antioxidants. Antioxidants are the key nutrients that protect your cells from damaging particles, called free radicals. And, it is free radicals that are in the air we breathe, food we eat and metabolise – that break off the vital cell control molecules, the chromosomes, leaching to cell dysfunction, including cancer. Free radicals upset cell membrane function, so your cells don’t “absorb and excrete correctly”. Now the truth is that we need about 9000 ORAC units of antioxidants per day, to not suffer such cell damage or


8.indd 1

alternatively to get this we need to eat 15 carrots. Unreal eh! But, only a mere 10 grams of dried goji berries gives you over twice the ORAC units you need. Just to be clear on how powerful this is, a serve of fresh strawberries is about 5% of this. So how do you feel – smiling now, knowing full well that goji berries can provide powerful nutritional benefits to protect essential life cell processes, so you can get more out of life and be happy? But there is way more – after merely taking gojis the function of your blood radically changes over just seven days. Typically red blood cells clump together but after just seven days on gojis they are seen to separate. This means they can carry more oxygen, and that means more energy. Also, uric acid crystals disappear. White blood cells are seen to become active and like “pacmen” – they are seen to now “gobble up” bad bacteria/moulds – go to (refer June 2013) and see, this is powerful stuff.

So why would goji berries be so powerful nutritionally?…Yes, they certainly contain lots of Beta Carotene for “the eyes”, many minerals, essential amino acids…But they also contain 31% by weight of long chain molecules called polysaccharides. These actually change the gut function – they are digestible by some bacteria, they bind to bile acids and…once fermented in the colon produce essential fatty acids… so your gut function is enhanced – with better absorption. So why wouldn’t you want to add goji berries to your diet? Morlife make it easy by including them in their muesli… so this ensures you get a good “whack” of antioxidants. They are also coated in dark chocolate, chocolate coated gojis so this becomes a very functional and good snack. The proof of course is in the eating – challenge yourself for say, 30 days and prove you can have the “happy” from the berry.

The New Kid on the Block Q: Why did you decide that the time had come to open The Greenhouse Café? A: Since moving to the southern end of the coast I noticed a real need for a café that served healthy, organic and clean food. I struggled to find places to eat in the area myself so thought, hey! Why not open my own! And so the Greenhouse Café was born! Q: Did you do any research before opening The Greenhouse Café? A: 17 years’ experience in the industry was research enough! You soon learn to know what people want in a dining experience. For the last couple of years I’ve also been studying naturopathy and nutrition. I’m currently half way through and I really am loving it. I use my knowledge when making

choices for the café menu. The health movement at the moment led me to believe there would be people who would want to dine in a healthy, organic and ethical café. I make ethical choices from the food I serve, from the coffee I order, from cleaning products I use, even the waste (the neighbours’ chickens get all waste produce) and the takeaway containers I use (all plant-based biodegradable), also no bpa or microwaving etc… Q: What kind of response have you received since opening? A: Overwhelming to be completely honest! We just made it through opening weekend and people flocked. We had people waiting patiently for free tables so they could dine with us and experience the Greenhouse Café.

Q: Who did you open the café with? A: Just me! The chef, Amy Fulton, is one of my closest friends and she helped a lot in the set-up. I couldn’t have done it without her. She’s an exceptional human being who is appreciated beyond belief. Q: And finally, what has been the most popular dish? A: So far, the Sweet Corn Fritters for breakfast and the Veggie Burger for lunch. The Harissa Baked Beans with Harissa Yoghurt and the Mediterranean Vegetables on Turkish are also extremely popular. And for dessert? You cannot go past the Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie. It’s a sell-out every day! Instagram – greenhouse_cafe

FOOD FOR THE SOUL • Due to the Maca roots’ high mineral content, it has been known to help remineralise the body. Maca is grown at over 4000 metres above sea level in rich mineral soils and an uncontaminated environment. Maca is a great addition to smoothies and breads. • Manganese and zinc, the predominant minerals in maple syrup, support immune system function by contributing to cell growth and maintaining healthy levels of white blood cells. • Our range also includes hemp seeds, protein and oil! Hemp seeds contain all 20 amino acids and are a rich source of phyto-nutrients. Hemp seed oil is extremely moisturising and studies have shown it may help with eczema. Our ‘flower of life’ symbolism embodies our knowledge that we are all connected on this planet as one. We are one ‘family of life’. We know that sharing and spreading the powerful ancient superfoods to the people of earth, will awaken the consciousness to a new age of health, vitality and universal love for one another.

Got the

Sniffles or the Flu?



ertainly none of us enjoy feeling run down and unwell and it can be especially difficult to see our little ones this way. But we need to remember that occasional colds and flu actually help to build our children’s immunity. Advertising has given us the perception that the natural thing to do when our child is ill is to give them medication, creating powerful images that associate medication use with compassion for our children. However, it is important to understand that whilst uncomfortable, fever actually plays an important healing role. A good fever will help our children burn the infection more effectively. A proactive approach to fevers, coughs and colds is to focus on comforting our child rather than directly trying to reduce their symptoms or their temperature. This includes making sure our children consistently eat a range of the high quality foods, they get ample sleep, filtered water, sweaty exercise and a loving home environment. What people often neglect in proactive care is the state of their nervous system. A fully functioning nervous system is required in order to govern optimum immune function and digestive strength. Chiropractic and the Flu Chiropractic has never stated that it can “cure” anything, moreover it CAN NOT prevent us from catching the cold or flu bugs. However, research HAS shown

though, that regular chiropractic care can increase the body’s natural immune defenses and increase our body’s ability of dealing with any bacteria or virus in a more efficient manner. One of the most important studies showing the positive effect chiropractic care can have on the immune system and general health was performed by Ronald Pero, PhD, chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University. In his initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more, the chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer and other serious diseases. The immune system superiority of those under chiropractic care did not diminish with age. Dr Pero stated: “When applied in a clinical framework, I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group to experience a 200% increase in immune system function over the normal patients. This is why it is so dramatically important. We have never seen such a positive improvement in a group…” For more information or to schedule a spinal health check contact DR AMANDA FRACHE at Wellsure, Caloundra. Visit:

message Sandy has for us – prosperity and abundance is available for all of us. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, where you come from, how much money your parents had or how little you’ve had in the past. If you would like riches and an abundant life, you can manifest it through utilising and applying the Universal Law of Attraction. And Sandy is living proof. Dropping out of High School in year 11 and eventually marrying her high school sweetheart, she fumbled her way through an array of career choices from working in a library, spray tanning at Mooloolaba beach, to being an aerobics instructor. With her love for sewing, she started her swim and gym wear business. Not long after, she was divorced with two infant children. The swimwear business that she had begun as a hobby suddenly had to become her primary income source and having absolutely no experience in business, Sandy found herself $100,000 in debt and earning just $15,000 a year on welfare. Feeling that she had no control over her life and no idea of where she was headed, Sandy experienced one failed business venture after another before she finally realised that there was one key element that was missing in the manifesting of a prosperous life. Somewhere deep inside, she didn’t believe she was worthy. She didn’t consider herself to be a business person and she believed that she was no good with numbers, hated networking and was just too disorganised to be successful in business. Not one to be defeated, she decided that no matter what it took, she was going to be a successful person and that money would flow to her. She kept going, changing her beliefs and affirming herself as a winner of business awards. She discovered the world of personal development and has never looked back, becoming the best-selling author of the book, How to be Wildly Wealthy Fast, and now has a multitude of international awards to her name. Sandy has also raised the bar with global contribution through her connections with world-wide

Manifesting our lives is more about remembering than it is about learning techniques or tools. We are all co-creators, the Universal Law of Attraction exists just like gravity does, always there, doing what it does. The choice we have is whether or not we desire to be conscious co-creators.

transformational leaders. You see, there’s a movement that’s occurring on the planet and as co-creators we can all contribute. When there are enough people choosing to co-create with the universe and dynamically create prosperity on the planet, the whole world will rise in consciousness. You might think that you’re not making a difference, however if enough people raise their awareness and consciousness, we can literally transform the world. Now, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past eight years or so, you would most likely be familiar with ‘The Secret’ and more precisely, the Universal Law of Attraction. And here’s a tip – whether you are consciously aware of it or not, you are already using the Law of Attraction, you are already manifesting the current life you have. Sandy’s question to you is – if the Law of Attraction is already in effect, then why not use it to your advantage and create the life you truly desire? “But I’ve done affirmations; I’ve done the hours and hours of visualising. I’ve done vision boards and mediations and I still haven’t created the life that I desire!” Does that sound familiar? In her book, Sandy describes how we all have our very own universal warehouse, where everything we could possibly imagine or desire is stored, just waiting for us to choose it. And when we ask for it, the universe conspires to bring it to us. Then in a split second, we cancel the order with any number of limiting beliefs, such as “It will never happen for me” or “I’m just not smart enough to pull that off” or “I just don’t have the time”. The order is cancelled and returned to the warehouse. Fourteen years ago, Sandy was $100,000 in debt and on welfare. Today she is a millionaire, meeting with global

transformational leaders, travelling the world and teaching others how to do the same through her Inspired Spirit Coaching Academy. Creating her prosperous life has given Sandy so much more than money. “Yes I’ve made a lot of money but for me it’s all about the freedom. I’ve taken my kids overseas and we’ve trekked the Inca trail in Peru. We’ve watched wildebeest migrate across the Serengeti, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro and swum in the Sacred Caves of Mexico. I’ve even taken my daughter on a shopping spree in New York! It’s about the freedom to be able to do the things you really want to do.” True wealth is absolute joy and freedom of living the life you desire. Sandy’s message is strong and clear – “I’m no different to the next person. If I can do it, anyone can.” Manifesting our lives is more about remembering than it is about learning techniques or tools. We are all cocreators, the Universal Law of Attraction exists just like gravity does, always there, doing what it does. The choice we have is whether or not we desire to be conscious co-creators. Do we want to take the steering wheel of our lives? Are we willing to ask for what we truly desire and are we willing to receive what we have asked for? Sandy shared with me one of her favourite quotes from Wallace Wattle: “By thought, the thing you desire is brought to you, by action you receive it.” Are you ready and willing to do whatever it takes to create AND receive the life you truly desire?

Your Body is your Wealth

WORDS JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education


hat do you mean my bank account is a reflection of what is happening inside my prostate, kidney and my mind? I am wealthy when my bank account has lots of money in it. There is nothing left and therefore I am poor!” These words are uttered by many of my corporate clients, especially men. Your bank account will reflect your body and thoughts. Body consciousness of the uterus and prostrate are connected with creativity, productivity and housing. It’s like your own personal factory and whatever you think you can create more of there. This affects the lumbar spine (not feeling supported). This is seen as gynaecological and prostrate problems. The investment is in the negative and therefore you get a negative return. By changing your perception of you and invest in you with positive thoughts, actions and words said, your bank

account will grow in monetary wealth. Your kidneys will be affected as this organ is about relationships, paranoia and coping. When you have a great relationship with yourself, the kidneys are happy and healthy. If you ‘put yourself down’ then your kidney will go into fear, paranoia and a feeling of not coping. The healthy kidney relationship is knowing you can trust yourself to always create a source of money somehow. You will know when you are not investing in you, as words will be expressed like ‘owe, debt, broke, ripped off, can’t afford, cheat and not enough’. Related to your body, the words have this meaning… OWE – you owe yourself to see how great you are, BROKE – the perception of ‘seeing you as enough’ is broken. CHEAT and ROB means you are cheating and robbing yourself of seeing your own brilliance. We can afford everything we choose not to buy, which

is a totally different energy, science and way of being. Time to make a financial investment in you! It is as simple as making a decision and saying ‘that is what I want’. You were born ‘enough’ and you will die enough. That is a fact. The more you appreciate – you appreciate – or grow in value. To appreciate means ‘welcome’ and ‘pleased about’ YOU! Next is gratitude – the act and art of gratitude is the act and art of loving. This is in all my teachings of Medical Intuition, on my website front page and my favorite affirmation for me. It is an art to learn to love yourself. The more you practise the art of investing in you with your mind and see the best in you, the more it becomes a wealth changing habit. You are already rich just in different stages of remembering.

Wealth & Riches

– What’s Possible For You?



was born in a small Scottish mining town, the odd child out, always knowing that I didn’t fit. I chose to create a life that was different than everything around me. Being very poor did not work for me. Walking to school in the snow with holes in my shoes I was forced to ask questions and demand more. I got exactly what I asked for: a rich man to rescue, protect and take care of me. Having multiple millions of British pounds, I didn’t get why I was suffering and felt like dying – why my reality felt less, even though I had more money than I imagined possible. Isn’t money supposed to make us happy? Riches is all about money. It is all about what you buy, where you go, who you hang out with and, for most people, proves they are successful in this reality. It’s not wrong… it’s just different to wealth! Riches make my life

easier and give me more choice – and are not enough for me! Wealth is an energy of creation. Having riches without wealth is like having petrol without a car. Wealth is the ability to create from where we are. Receiving creates wealth. Science has shown that we function using only 10% of our brains. We are capable of receiving thousands of bits of information every second and the average person receives around 6 or 7. Are we stopping ourselves from receiving the wealth we could have? We use way more energy to cut off our awareness and limit ourselves than we do to create the different reality that would work for us. How? We have been conditioned to live in conclusion. We have been conditioned to ‘know’ how everything is, without questioning anything. Our brains are antennae – big receivers that enable us to ask questions

and get awareness instead of ready answers. Einstein was a creator who didn’t get his awareness from people or books. If he hadn’t put his questions out into the universe, we wouldn’t have the gifts of his life’s work. Every choice we make is a creation. Every decision we make is a creation. Every judgment we make is a creation. Consciousness is living life with the moment-by-moment possibility that there is way more for us to be, receive and create. If you are aware an energy exists you can use it to bring something into physical actualisation, or combine it with other energies and create the energy you would like you and your living to be. That’s the creation of true wealth! What if being wealthy would bring way more riches into your life? Is it maybe this you have been asking for?

Is your

Glass Half Full

or forever evaporating? WORDS DR LORRAINE O’NEILL


s we know one of the major measures of being successful is often connected with how much money you have.

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with making money – but sometimes making money is simply a distraction from what being successful

really means… and how happy you are. Let’s put money making aside for one moment and look at one of the major key components for personal success – flexibility and adaptability, or in other words – the ability to change. Think about it, if you could change one area in your life, and that change helps you define your success and helps attract more income, would you do it? Everyone reading this who is a glasshalf-full person is saying yes… to the others all I’ll say is top up your glass and read on! There are many things around you that might need changing. It could be where you live, your job or even who you socialise with, but one of the main areas that hold individuals back from moving forward is… ATTITUDE. Attitude drives the way you think and how others think of you. Your attitude can make or break you, and everyone has an attitude towards money. So let’s look at your attitude towards money and in turn, your happiness. If you can change a part of your life to either enhance your success with money or enhance your lifestyle, look at your attitude towards money first. Are you a person who has said or thought any of the following phrases? 1. The Poor Me Syndrome – “I never have enough money”

2. The I Don’t Care Syndrome – “I don’t care about money” (but deep down you do) 3. The Monk Syndrome – “I’m not comfortable talking, thinking or dealing with money” 4. The Money Is Evil Syndrome – “it’s not nice to think about or talk about money to others” or “money is the root of all evil” 5. The Knocker Syndrome – “why do you charge for what you do, you should be doing this for free – if you care that much!” 6. The Worrier Syndrome – “I need the money to pay my debts” 7. The Worker Syndrome – “The only time you make money is by working hard” If you are – STOP IT! Remember it is difficult to attract money if there is a negative attitude towards it. So how do you change your attitude towards money? You could say a few positive affirmations about money every morning; however, I personally know you need to do more than a little chanting… If you grew up in an environment, which undermined self-esteem, and lacked motivation or ambition, if you learnt to believe that you don’t deserve to be wealthy or think that money is evil, you will find it hard to simply chant to

Attitude drives the way you think and how others think of you. Your attitude can make or break you, and everyone has an attitude towards money. make more money. What you need to do is look at yourself and your lifestyle and take one step towards changing a small part of your life that you know is stopping you from going forward. A recent UK study of 90,000 people has found that people with a sunnier disposition were more likely to get a degree, get a job and get promoted… all of which relates to money. It’s basic really, apparently, optimistic, positive, life-enhancing, happy people are nicer to be around, so they receive more attention and are more likely to be selected for everything compared to their pessimistic, negative, life-sapping, miserable peers. That is why they are hired and promoted: all that “can do”, “will-have-a-go”, “sure, it’s a pleasure” that you get from the sunny worker. It goes without saying that happy people have better moods, which means they make better decisions and feel able to rise to greater challenges. Bad moods or general moodiness can easily affect clear thinking and decision-making. Happy people are mentally and

physically fitter… they are less prone to anxiety, depression, moodiness and psychosomatic disorders. This means they don’t go absent much and don’t miss out on things. They pitch up and pitch in more often and with more enthusiasm. Happy people have better relationships: they are more attractive and have more friends who can be useful for a whole range of activities. We all need social support at times and happy people have greater access to it. It is hard to be happy all the time, in fact I think it is humanely impossible for a person to be 100% happy all the time – we are human after all, but at those times where you can see an opportunity, take it. At those times where you find yourself thinking or talking negatively about money, stop it and rethink your words.

hat does it mean to be a transformational presence? In my life, I have recognised that when I am aligned with my Higher Self, I not only feel centred and empowered, I also affect situations around me. Things start to flow and answers to things that seem unsolvable occur without effort. Problems solve, creativity flows and my circle of friends grows in both their consciousness and inner strength. The more that we focus on empowering ourselves from a loving space within ourselves, the more we connect to our Higher Self. We are able to let go of fear and control. We find ourselves in a place of peace and non-attachment to outcomes. This level of surrender is so powerful and yet it provides us with a sense of lightness. We are able to play more easily and be spontaneous. Perhaps intermittent belly laughs become the norm in our everyday life! How does this affect those around

us? Well, in a number of ways. At first, others may feel uncomfortable. Perhaps they think we are on something. They may even ask, “what are you on?” They may want what we’ve got so much that they feel jealous. Perhaps they try to ridicule us or bring us down. It doesn’t really matter because when we are truly empowered, we see that all parts of another’s journey are important. We stay centred and we see how we are already a transformational presence. In their reactions they are ‘coming to’, waking up and noticing a difference. It’s working. Eventually they’ll become sick and tired of being sick and tired! But that is their choice and free will. When we allow ourselves to connect to this Higher Self, we transform into the Everyday Lightworker that we are born to be. Everyone can do this and I believe we are all evolving towards this vibration every day. The more we connect to our Higher Selves, the more we focus on the solution, the more we create infinite opportunities to transform our everyday lives. We don’t have to

Did you know that the first cervical vertebra, the atlas, is out of alignment in most people? This circumstance leads to a variety of physical and psychological ailments and illnesses. Atlasprofilax is a neuromuscular technique that liberates the Atlas with only one application accurately, safely and permanently. This powerful relocation immediately activates a self-healing and harmonising process. It is holistic in nature, promoting wellness and rejuvenation on all levels, mind, body and spirit. This method is nonmedical, non-chiropratic.

One Treatment Can Be Life Changing The Atlas supports your head and governs structural alignment. A misaligned Atlas causes restriction of the brain stem, spinal cord, cranial nerves and arteries. This limits our potential for wellbeing and creates tension, restricting the free flow of energy. When the Atlas is installed correctly, the body begins an unwinding process, releasing holding patterns and enabling the body to heal and regenerate.

wait for a crisis, or a problem to live in the solution. Allowing ourselves to be this infinite transformational presence creates abundance, manifests unlimited creativity and assists us to ground our projects and ideas. We are the change that we want to see. As an ultimate result of infinite transformation, we change everything and everyone by our very presence. If you are already living this vibration, congratulations! Welcome to the future! If not, welcome to your present. Welcome the opportunity to allow yourself to tap into your infinite potential of the Everyday Lightworker. Just say to yourself “I am willing to be the REAL me”. This will unlock the padlock of resistance to stepping into your higher vibrations. Then see what opportunities come a-knocking at your door to assist and support you in this new way of being. Take notice for signs, people and opportunities who are part of this new chapter of your life.

Are we creating from WORDS SARAH BE



Survival or Thrival?

hen creating our financial realities, are we creating from the concepts of survival, or the possibilities of abundance and thrival? What if it is our words, our thoughts, and our energies that we are being, that create our financial realities? Are we all aware that we have created everything around us; including the bits we would now like to change!! Did you know that the universe is infinitely gifting to us all, at all times? Here’s an interesting fact! To create survival, you actually have to destroy or exclude all of the connecting universal energies to you first, in order to create the lack and shortage you desire, to create the concept of survival in the first place!! We would choose this for what reason??!! When creating from thrival, abundance, and wealth, we are inclusive of every energy already being present in our worlds, and we co-create with the universe and everyone in it. These are the synchronistic flows we often experience. There is also a knowing within us that if we desire or require

something else in our lives, we can create it by asking for it to show up and then following the energetic awareness of what to do next in order to have it. Which concept would you like to function from? Firstly did you know…

It’s just a choice! Choose Survival or Choose Thrival!! It’s up to you!

SURVIVAL THRIVAL I don’t have any money for this.  What would it take for the money to show up for this? I never have money left for me.  Put 10% away of everything you earn and don’t touch it. Pay me first as an honouring of me for I always pay myself last.  everything I do! I’m not interested in money. Educate yourself in an aspect of money that may be fun for you. I budget so I can make ends meet. I know my expenditure and I would like to increase this! I am willing to go out and earn more. I cut back wherever I can. I desire more life! I don’t like my work.  What would be fun for me that I can earn an abundance of money from? Questions you can ask to change the energy of your money flows? 1. What can I create and generate today that would bring me money right away? 2. W  hat would it take for more money and wealth to show up in my life right now? 3. W  hat energies can I be that would create my life and my business abundantly for me?

What is

Benevolent Capitalism?



ver the past ten years, there’s been an explosion of interest in sustainability. There is growing recognition of the significant effect the activities of businesses have on the environment and on the society in which they operate. The nature of business practices are under immense scrutiny. For decades, most successful organisations have been creating their business with a single-minded effort on maximising profit without taking into account the social and environmental impact of corporate activity when making decisions. Normal business practices based on traditional capitalism models are not working anymore. The old way of measuring value is becoming irrelevant. When we ask business leaders, “Are you aware that how you respond to the challenge of sustainability will profoundly impact the planet, as well as affect the success and perhaps even the survival of your organisation?”, most reply ‘yes’ to the question. Many, however, have no idea what it means to respond to the


22.indd 1

challenge of sustainability. Capitalism is now at a turning point. Economies have entered a new era. We live in a time of accelerating change in the global landscape. To prosper and thrive in the decades ahead, leaders have to think differently about the way they operate their business. Yet most leaders and managers do everything they can to keep their timeworn conventional business models in place. Too much of what’s been done here is capitalism based on “I have to get my share” and not caring if anyone else does. Unless businesses function from benevolent capitalism and from what it would take to create more in the world for everybody, not just themselves, eventually we are going to use up the planet’s resources. We are not going to create a sustainable reality, nor a sustainable planet, unless things begin to change. By sustainable, we’re not just talking “survive”, we’re talking about where there is actual growth and where reality and planet become something even greater. Benevolent capitalism is not about

philanthropy or simply a matter of good corporate citizenship. The precept of benevolent capitalism goes beyond being “ethical”, or social and moral responsibilities. Benevolent capitalism is a form of capitalism that is driven by businesses that not only think about the short-term financial benefits, but also about building longer-term sustainable businesses that create economic, environmental and social value, that have a positive impact on society. It creates an entirely new superstructure for business and its reasons for existing. Benevolent corporations shift from capitalism based on “I have to get my share” and using and abusing to get what they want; to instead embracing a benevolent way of being, which looks at the different futures that can be created. Benevolent is not about doing kindness to others, it’s about doing no damage and creating a sustainable future for our society. In our view corporations can go beyond being responsible, ethical or accountable, and accomplish so much more if they used their core business

strengths to address significant societal and environmental needs through their products and services. This is true innovation. And it starts with you. The thing is, there is nothing wrong with capitalism and the willingness to make money. Capitalism, in and of itself, is value neutral. It is neither good nor bad. Capitalism has been the greatest creator of value in the world. It has steered the world economy to remarkable prosperity in the past two hundred years. It has lifted millions out of poverty and created innovations that have made society what it is. Yet it has also proved dysfunctional in substantial ways. At the moment, too much capitalism tends to be about enriching the few at the expense of the many. Enriching the few is not so much the problem, it is more the “at the expense of the many”. Business today needs a new paradigm along the lines of benevolent capitalism, because it is apparent that conventional business practices are out of balance – and we need to address this

imbalance now. When businesses choose to govern more strategically with a conscious benevolent approach, they will transform into being more responsible, transparent, and benevolent entities. They will enrich society and maximise possibilities for the people and the planet as a result of their operations, products and services. If businesses continue to function from using and abusing to get what they want, the end result is going to be a world that’s not liveable. Benevolent capitalism is meant to create an entirely new system for businesses whose approach and strategy can be based upon the following: functioning from generating a sustainable future, doing NO damage, maximising the possibilities instead of just maximising revenue, and conscious benevolent leadership. It must be ingrained into business strategy and practices. Businesses can choose to exist at an anti-conscious level, consuming all they can, taking as much as possible from the earth and giving little back. Or they can transform themselves into

‘Benevolent Capitalists’ who create value for others and operate in a way that causes no damage and that does not use up, but rather restores and enhances, the environment. It’s just choice. STEVEN and CHUTISA BOWMAN are internationally recognised leaders on strategic awareness, innovation, prosperity consciousness and conscious leadership development. Leading proponents of Generative Innovation and Conscious Leadership for over two decades, the Bowmans have also gained recognition as thought-leaders on the unconventional perspective of benevolent capitalism.

Journey with Money




o matter what circumstances may be happening around me, there is a glow of wealth I feel from within. Yet I have struggled financially many times in my life. I decide to go on a journey within myself to invite abundance to manifest monetarily. The Journey is recognised worldwide as a powerful healing modality. By being present, the SOURCE of who you are is naturally experienced. From this boundless peace you access your infinite body wisdom, and together with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), beliefs and memories can be reprogrammed to reflect health and empowerment. In a quiet place I sit, close my eyes and give permission to my body to just relax. The journey has begun! Immediately I feel overwhelming sadness in my heart. As I feel this sadness, tears flow. And still I welcome it. Soon I feel this sadness dissipate,

only to now feel tension. I welcome this too until eventually it also dissipates. Pain is now felt. Emotional layers to do with money come and go. Then suddenly there is calmness, followed by a feeling of deep peace. Inside and out this felt peace expands infinitely in every direction. This peace is the SOURCE of who I am. I rest here. In my mind’s eye I see a campfire. The nature of this campfire is unconditional love, peace and freedom. I see the present day me, and wisdom has brought a younger thirteen-year-old me. A memory instantly comes to mind at this age. I am in a situation where I feel very alone, not good enough and sad. Essentially, I feel shut down. I ask this thirteen-year-old, “what inner qualities do you need, which you do not presently have?” “A feeling of love,” he replies, “courage, acceptance, laughter and knowing everything will be okay”. One at a time the thirteen-year-

old me receives and breathes in each of these inner qualities. The change in how he feels is very noticeable. Replaying the memory, the thirteenyear-old is now open and confident. “It’s time to let life and abundance in,” he reflects. Next, the thirteen-year-old identifies old, unhealthy beliefs and removing them from his body, throws them into the campfire. New and empowering beliefs including, “It is safe to have an abundance of money” are created, felt and cellularly installed. “I’m so sorry, please forgive me” are the words the thirteen-year-old and the present day me exchange. The Journey ends. Opening my eyes, my body literally feels “reprogrammed”. These new empowering beliefs now feel like my natural way of being with money.

The World Health Organization defines true health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Here at Premier Chiropractic, we honour this definition. Chiropractic is founded on simple principles: Your body is controlled by your brain and nervous system, which is protected by the spinal column. Spinal bones move out of alignment, due to traumas, poor nutrition and mental stressors. This disruption of normal nerve flow is known as vertebral subluxation. It is essential to know that subluxations can be silent; causing problems long before symptoms occur. Chiropractors find subluxations, and by performing a spinal adjustment, facilitate a return of normal nerve supply. Normal nerve supply results in a greater expression of LIFE for you! We know that everyone was designed to live a healthy life free of sickness, disease and pain. We know that the best doctor lives inside of you and that true health comes from within. We know that everyone has the ability to live a long abundant life so long as the body is free of interference. It is our mission to help the community understand and implement these simple principles through education, state-of-the-art equipment and guidance by a highly trained, passionate team, in order to live a vibrant healthy life!

Is Money a Necessity? WORDS SIMONE MILASAS


ecessity is described as an essential requirement, an indispensable item or something you must have or do. How much of what you choose in your life is based on necessity? Does that sound like an oxymoron? How is choosing for your life based on what you have decided is absolutely required, in any way a choice? Sounds more like no choice! Every time we function from necessity, from “I have to” or “I must” obligation is created. And obligation eventually leads to resentment. Take money for example. Have you made money a necessity? Is money an essential requirement? Is it something you must have? You might be saying, “Of course! How else do you have the things that are required to live?” While it is true, this reality functions with money, as long as money is viewed as a necessity, you will be obligated to make, have and keep it. Which means eventually you will resent money because rather than being fun and something to play with, it becomes a relentless task master. I invite you to take a moment to look


26.indd 1

at how you currently be with money. Do you have a sense of ease and peace with money? Or is agitation and desperation more of an accurate description? Do you worry about not having enough? Is having money a burden? Is NOT having money a burden? Do you invite money in or do you have disdain for it? Money is actually energy. The energies that you project at money dictate how you interact with it. In other words, the energies that you project at money create your experience with it. When your interaction with money is heaviness, agitation, desperation, worry and disdain, what do you think money does? Does it come running to play with you? Or does it say, “I’m out of here! This person actually hates me. I’m going to go where there’s fun, joy and play!” If you are currently functioning in agitation and desperation with money, what would it take to change that interaction so that something else can show up? What would it take to come out of the conclusions about money and about the necessity of money and into an ease and spaciousness?

It begins with changing the energy. Changing the energy begins with a choice. Money as a Choice What if you looked at money as a choice? Would it change the energy you have around it? And, if money was just a choice, what would you choose? Recently, I was asking for more money to show up in my life and I received an email that afternoon from someone I did a telesummit with and they said “Oh! We forgot to send you money for the last few months, so here’s a bonus.” Just like that. Choose to have money. Be willing to receive. Money shows up!

Staying in Our Comfort Zone


Often, we decide what’s comfortable for us and we gravitate to that based on its familiarity. Even if we would like to have something different, the allure of comfort can keep us from going beyond our current situation.

Tools for Changing the Energy with Money As an example, when I finally came out of debt, within two weeks I found myself back in debt. I then realised that I was more comfortable being in debt than I was actually having money. Luckily I had Access Consciousness® tools and was willing to ask questions. When creating change with regards to money, many times people conclude that they need to cut down on expenses. Tighten up. Spend less. Simplify. What if you knew the energy of what you’d like your life to be and asked for that, and then were willing to receive that energy when it shows up and use it to create more? So what choices could you make today that could take you out of your comfort zone and would match the energy of having a lot more future possibilities?

be willing to change the way you look at money. Get rid of all of your judgments. Have FUN with money!!

1. Judgment What judgments do you have of money? Do you have more judgment of you not having money or having money? If you are functioning from secret and hidden agendas with money you will also be hiding money from you. You have to

If you live your life from necessity, you limit what can show up. If you live your life from choice you open up the infinite possibilities.

2. “I have to work hard for money” point of view Lots of people have work as a necessity. If you are working from necessity, what choices have you made around work that is creating the lack of money showing up in your life? What if you were willing to create a business or get a job that you absolutely love? What if there was another way to make money? What revenue streams would like to contribute to you? What if beginning now with everything you are doing, ask, “Is this a choice or a necessity?” If you get it is necessity ask, “What would I have to change in order for this to be a choice?”

How does it get any easier than this?!

• Gratitude – What if you were grateful for what you do have and what you can make? Gratitude and judgment cannot co-exist and being grateful changes the energy. • Put away 10% of every dollar that you receive as a way of honoring you. This choice communicates to the Universe that you are willing to HAVE money; not just spend it. This changes the way you are with money. It creates peace and ease. • Money follows joy, joy doesn’t follow money. Recognise what it is that brings you joy with money. Is it seeing $500 in your wallet? Is it wearing jewellery, or carrying gold coins? Watching your 10% grow? Having cash around? What’s the energy for you that creates the sense of having money and creates ease and peace? What is the energy that brings joy for you to have money in your life?

ithout any doubt some of the most remarkable times I have spent horizontal on a bed have been with my clothes on… receiving a Body Harmony treatment. There is something decidedly enchanting for the soul that is taking place in those moments. My problems seem to become relegated to minutia as I begin to recognise the signs of liberation. A transformative relief pleasantly overcomes me and I sigh. Oh what a relief it is to have my body be received by a conscious and inquisitive set of hands. What is this disarmingly welcomed experience that gently overtakes my standard modus operandi, opening my heart and mind to a universe of liberating internal movement? This gentle movement is like warm water nourishing the landscape of my neglected self. My sore spots ease, my breathing opens and the destination is quite literally holistic bliss. Bliss however, while very welcome was not my primary purpose in seeking out such a treatment. Self transformation was at the top of my agenda. Was posture really a determinant of the

way a person behaved? And given the right circumstances could a body surrender to a new way of being if it was one that was sourced from within, free from the erroneous investments that others might introject into the process? I quickly realised that the posturing my body oriented to, very often without my awareness, communicated more than my words in any conversation. The power to positively effect this dynamic became readily and reliably available to me, and this body work is the educational process that set the stage for the kind of liberating learning that I would not find in a text book. On the Sunshine Coast in October there exists a rare opportunity to learn Body Harmony with its founder, Dr Don McFarland. He will be supported by three of the most experienced teachers in the world: Linda McFarland, Gina Carruthers and DUNCAN HOGG. Learning options take the form of seminars conducted as part of a one-month Body Harmony Retreat ranging from two days to a whole month. The classes will be held in the Noosa Hinterland at the stunning Alaya Verde Retreat. To find out more you can visit: or

Emotional Reality versus Spirituality WORDS TONI REILLY


t concerns me how out of touch we seem to be with allowing our emotions to hold a place in our lives. They along with touch and taste are a privilege that we experience as we navigate through life. There is so much out there about how negative certain emotions are, backed up with a forceful expectation that being positive and happy all the time is the way to be. Pretending to feel happy when we don’t is showing a mask to the world, and covering up how we really feel, and it is exhausting to try to uphold the farce. Being honest with ourselves first and foremost, and then developing the courage to show emotional vulnerability is what some of us are here to learn. Ultimately we need to open up and show our true selves without a care about what anyone else thinks. Being vulnerable enough to reveal our flaws, our feelings and the depth that we experience, is paramount to our personal growth, and this means being

responsible for our feelings, and the actions we partake in to hide or to express them. Anger is an emotion that cops a bad wrap. There are times in all of our lives when we will feel angry, frustrated or short tempered and it really is okay. The background is almost always that we are angry at ourselves. When we lash out at someone with the wrath of our fury, then we are tested on whether we have the strength to own our behavior or not. Anger is sometimes a driving force that some need to learn in order to stand up for themselves rather than passively allowing others to take advantage of them. Unconditional love is the energy where our soul lives, the home that we are all from and we will all return to that bliss when our incarnation is done. We are busily trying to emanate unconditional love here on earth; realistically this is unlikely to happen because earth is the school of emotion. Let’s instead be realistic

and embrace our emotions instead of beating ourselves up for having them. Let go of unrealistic expectations and replace them with awareness, this assists you to understand how, and what makes you feel the way that you do. All emotions are valid and it is unreasonable to expect anyone to be in one constant state. Variables are the very nature of being human. Enjoy the journey without pressuring yourself to feel the way society or anyone else expects you to. Express your feelings instead of suppressing them and bask in the immense relief of self-acceptance. TONI REILLY is an internationally recognised regression facilitator and professional trainer who devised her own unique techniques. As the founder of Toni Reilly Institute she developed the Diploma of SoulLife™ Psychology, a professional qualification for intuitive practitioners.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy


estore and regenerate healthy tissue like never before with hyperbaric oxygen therapy now available at Ibuki Health & Wellness. Aids in the treatment of chronic disease and helps to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the level of oxygen (O2) in the cells and has been proven to regenerate and restore healthy tissue. The elevated oxygen levels help athletes increase performance and recover more quickly after a work-out and now you can benefit from it too! A course of therapy can strengthen the heart and lungs, improve skin conditions, boost the immune system, reduce fatigue and more. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe, drug-free therapy that can be used regularly without any danger of oxygen toxicity. Thousands of people have had dramatic, and in many instances, life-changing improvements in their conditions as a result of using mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Our state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber is spacious enough to accommodate an adult and child, offering a comfortable environment that you can listen to your favourite music, read a book, use your laptop or simply relax and… breathe in the benefits.

What is



owen technique (sometimes called the homeopathy of bodywork) is a gentle, fast, effective treatment in which very subtle moves performed over the muscles and connective tissue send messages deep into the body, retrieving cellular memory of our body’s preferred, relaxed, balanced way of wellbeing (everybody has an original blueprint within them for wellbeing). These messages empower the body to heal itself. A treatment will address the whole body, not only the symptoms and has consistently shown to have profound and permanent healing and pain relief outcomes. Bowen is unique in that it balances the physical, physiological and emotional planes of the body making it beneficial for such a wide range of ailments. People come to see me for back or neck/shoulder pain, stress, migraines, chronic fatigue, amongst other things. Maintenance is essential for good health. Learning to respect and nurture your body along with good eating and exercise is a great way to start. Bowen is the perfect way to keep your body in balance, preventing pain and suffering rather than waiting until the body is broken down.

Conscious Community

Question: What is the fastest way to Enlightenment? Buddha: Good Company.


he Very Good Company was formed for the purpose of creating conscious community. As a part of that they run The Joining, a 3-day annual event which focuses on the relationship of the Masculine and Feminine, internally and externally. When I stepped up to hold the basket as a symbol of the feminine energy of The Joining for a whole year, I admittedly had no idea what it would bring to me. All I could feel was an irresistible pull towards this beautifully adorned symbol of the feminine energy for a whole community. This is a community that has become my family away from home and has held me through many challenges on the way to becoming an Australian resident. Having had the honour of being part of this community in the last eleven years,

all the positive qualities I associate with the word “family” apply to the people who are willing to show up in life and do whatever it takes to become more whole and integrated. With the committee (and Elders and Directors and community building circles) I have been doing the inner work needed all year to help create a container of love, power and acceptance that people can step into the moment they arrive. It has been such a journey for the last nine months, centred around this year’s theme of Inner Balance, Mature Relating and Divine Expression. Consequently, we have come to stand in a calmer, centred and steady place within ourselves and more fully present in our community. We’ve been learning to offer our uniqueness and our passions to others, like the ripe fruit on our Joining tree. Mature literally means ready and ripe. So it is our task to move from the essence of who we are as men and women, so that we can grow

Millennium Children Q: ‘Don’t my children realise what I do for them? They are so ungrateful. One child screams at me and no one else. And yet you say I am rich by this, TELL ME HOW?! A: Are you rich or poor as a parent? Perception is our reality. The biggest gift you can be given is the gift of looking after another human being, no matter what age. It is like a reward from the universe to say how valuable you are. Many parents do not realise that children express their love, gratitude and wealth in the most subtle ways to parents (and teachers) such as getting the ‘grumpies’ and expressing it, crying in front of the parent and expressing their true vulnerable self. As leaders, adults have the opportunity to teach a love language to the children to show them what is considered wealth, value and acceptance in our culture. Sarah’s Medical Intuitive session revealed she was feeling low self-worth as a Mum, as her 11-year-old son only

yelled at her. She kept asking ‘why me’? Simple – she was rich and wealthy in love for her son Brad. If he was upset, Brad knew his Mum would always be there and support him. The reaction of yelling was an opportunity for Sarah to see he was gifting her wealth and that he felt so safe with her. This was and is true wealth known as unconditional love. Sarah had the opportunity to teach Brad social behaviours of what is acceptable to her, society, school, etc and to prepare him for adulthood. She had a choice to see the value of what was happening in their relationship or choose to see it as ‘horrible’ as she stated.

As leaders, adults have the opportunity to teach a love language to the children to show them what is considered wealth, value and acceptance in our culture.


Magicality is 10 years old, in Mary Street and is an amazing business. Very affordable and great potential to expand.

Brad was a quiet child who did not express himself with anyone but his mum. I pointed out to Sarah that ‘yes Brad does realise what you do for him and that is why he does what he does’. He shows his gratitude by asking for help, for cuddling, for drawing you a picture and for calling out in the middle of the night when he feels scared. These actions are valuable and rich. Once Sarah heard this, she gasped and said ‘I’ve got it!’ Since then Brad’s behavior has been excellent with no yelling. Remember you are rich and that is why children ask parents to buy more toys, gadgets, electronics, etc as they sense the potentiality within each parent. The healing aspect is parents seeing the richness within themselves and be the example of what is possible. Do you have a question for Jean about your child or teenager? Email:

How Chiropractic Creates Change WORDS DR ERIC and ANGELA SLEAD


orking closely side-by-side everyday to bring the chiropractic message to the community, we are grateful to say we work in an area of healthcare that is

going to revolutionise health and the way we view health, it’s incredible! You’re thinking… how so? Well, chiropractors locate and correct subluxations – but chances are you’ve never heard of this

before. It’s so amazing that something so destructive to health and the cause of so many health problems is almost unknown to the community! In 1895, D D Palmer delivered the first chiropractic adjustment to a janitor named Harvey Lillard who had been partially deaf for 17 years. A few days later, the janitor reported that his hearing seemed significantly better. This pivotal discovery took place in Davenport Iowa – our dear hometown, immersed with chiropractic history, where we both grew up and eventually met each other. When you think about what happened, it’s simple to connect the adjustment to the restoration of Lillard’s hearing, starting with the big picture of health and what true health really means. The founder of Chiropractic went on to write, “I feel it my bounden duty to not only replace displaced bones, but also teach others, so that the physical and spiritual may enjoy health, happiness and the full fruition of our earthly lives.” The term “health” is used so much these days that the true meaning of the word is easy to lose sight of. To fully experience true health, we need 100% function and healing in our bodies. True health is not only the absence of disease, but when the parts of us (physical, spiritual, social) are all well. After the results of Harvey Lillard’s

adjustment, D D Palmer also coined the term “Innate Intelligence”, and it’s this concept that chiropractors honour and work with everyday. Dr Richard Cabot with Harvard Medical School has said, “The wisdom of the body is responsible for 90% of the hope of patients to recover. The body has a super wisdom that is in favour of life, rather than death. This is the power that we depend on for life. All doctors are responsible for letting their patients know of this great force working within them.” Innate Intelligence is responsible for the organisation, maintenance and healing of the body and it is embodied within our brain and spinal cord. In order for our brains to communicate with our organ systems and cells, messages from the brain travel down through the brain stem, spinal cord and eventually to the nerves that control each particular organ. This amazing powerhouse is housed within our spines, a perfectly designed structure made up of bony vertebrae. The design of the spine is to protect this delicate innate intelligence motorway. Unfortunately, our lifestyles allow for thoughts, traumas and toxins to misalign our spines – or simply, move the bones out of proper alignment putting pressure on nerves. When the bones put pressure on these nerves, we now have a decreased flow of nerve supply and

To fully experience true health, we need 100% function and healing in our bodies. True health is not only the absence of disease, but when the parts of us (physical, spiritual, social) are all well.

the brain cannot fully communicate with the body diminishing innate intelligence and your body’s ability to heal. This is what we call subluxation. The damaging effects that subluxation has on the body can present itself in many ways, such as in the form of common symptoms like pain or chronic disease – but sometimes, you may not feel it at all! Just because symptoms are common, it doesn’t make them normal. When the body expresses symptoms, it is a warning signal to us that there may be something wrong with function in the body. We must remember that we are all designed to be extraordinary. At Premier Chiropractic, we have a large vision – to change the way the Sunshine Coast view and manage their health through chiropractic principles. Chiropractic adjustments are not crude, but extremely specific. But what can chiropractors cure? The answer is NO Chiropractor can cure anything. Whenever health is restored, it is due to the human body, not by doctors. It seems society as a whole always wants to treat the symptoms and

not the cause. Life heals, not doctors. All the scientists put together couldn’t heal a blade of grass, yet your body is making living human flesh and blood out of the breakfast you had this morning. We want to give you some faith through understanding. We want to give you confidence through knowledge of this great fantastic body of yours. It’s so very simple – the delivery of the adjustment moves the bone into proper alignment, taking pressure off the nerves, allowing the brain to communicate with the body and thus, allowing Innate Intelligence to fully express. To make chiropractic a part of your healthy lifestyle, it’s as easy as arranging a spine and nerve exam with x-rays first and foremost, to discover how well your spine is protecting your powerful nervous system. Because only when we can appreciate and facilitate full function of this beautiful life force, we can experience the vibrant life that we were intended to live!

How can

Reconnective Healing

assist you and your body?



study by researchers at The University of Arizona found that people with range of motion limitations – inability to move without restriction – may find a considerable source of relief in Reconnective Healing. In a paper published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, scientists determined that a 10-minute session of Reconnective Healing is “significantly more effective than physical therapy.” Reconnective Healing practitioners, “work with their hands to sense, without touching the body… the bio fields, which are the energy fields that surround living beings”. The study was conducted by researchers Ann Linda Baldwin, PhD, Kristin Fullmer, PhD and Gary Schwartz, PhD at The University of Arizona’s Laboratory for the Advances in Consciousness and

Health, Department of Psychology and Department of Physiology, College of Medicine. The scientists set out to determine if one 10-minute Reconnective Healing session could increase the range of motion and arm elevation of those people with medically-diagnosed shoulder restriction or other rangelimiting conditions. Oftentimes such restrictions are a result of injuries, mastectomies, other surgeries, arthritis, and/or other joint dysfunction. This session with Reconnective Healing was measured against a control group and physical therapy, as well as other modalities. The subjects’ range of motion was documented before and after each treatment session. The results were definitive: Reconnective Healing yielded more than double the results of physical therapy. Reconnective Healing

Crystals and Healing

significantly improved range of motion by an average of 26-degrees in people with restricted shoulder mobility. Physical therapy averaged only a 12-degree improvement. The findings led the researchers to observe, “The results suggest that it would be beneficial for physical therapists to be trained in Reconnective Healing… as well as PT so that they could reduce the need for manual work on patients, at least in cases of shoulder limitations”. Reconnective Healing was discovered by ERIC PEARL, DC, a doctor who has worked with scientists associated with such prestigious institutions as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford, to quantify and understand the dynamics of what Stanford Professor Emeritus and researcher Dr William Tiller has termed the “cutting-edge of information medicine”.

Guided meditation is my personal favourite as this wonderful technique helps you release all the stress and pent-up tension in your mind and body. Guided meditation is crucial in my work, which requires clients to become relaxed rapidly, so healing on a deep cellular level can then take place more easily. While in this peaceful state, the messages from your inner awareness and cells within your body are easier to detect. All cells in the body contain memory from your past, and an ideal time to release any negative

During guided meditation it is recommended that you sit comfortably, where your guide will take you through a range of deep breathing exercises. This is typically complemented with a series of relaxing visualisations and peaceful music. As you delve into relaxation, stress fades away and your mind opens. You may be taken on an inner journey that is designed to improve an aspect of your life, perhaps tailored towards personal empowerment, healing or spiritual development.

10 Tips for Meditation WORDS CAMERON AGGS







The key task in meditation is to get to know your mind as it is. Regardless of whether it is disturbed or tranquil, our job is to learn how to observe it without reacting and with kindness. When you feel lost return your attention to the breath and start again. As much as possible meditate at the same time each day. Experiment with what works for you. Once you find a groove, find a way to slot meditation into your daily or weekly routine. Guard your practise like a small plant – know that it can easily be uprooted by the busyness of your life. When you notice that the winds of the daily chores have laid waste to your practise, pick it up again. There is no end point with this. A quiet place where you will not be disturbed is best for meditation. It is also good if the place that you use for meditation is not used for any purpose other than meditation. This will help build an atmosphere for practise. Any posture that keeps the back straight, the belly open, and the shoulders relaxed is suitable for meditation. Ideally the knees will be in line with or lower than the hips. Getting distracted in your meditation is perfectly okay. The willingness to notice this and to start again is the important point.

Meditation is about cultivating a kind and friendly relationship with ourselves. In an often turbulent world, it is a process of creating a ‘safe-place’ within. Watch with humour and patience as the mind runs into the past, present and future. With kindness and firmness bring it back. Use your breath as an anchor and start again. Perhaps look at maintaining your practise in two-week time slots. If you take a break, try noticing what it feels like when you haven’t practised in a few days/week/month. Does it make a difference? Meditation is a delivery device for entering into mindful states of consciousness. You don’t need to be sitting on your cushion to do this. You can become mindful right now. Try this, bring your attention to the feelings of your feet on the floor, your bottom in the chair and the next in-breath. Do this for three more deep and long breaths. Good isn’t it?! Enjoying the benefits from meditation is like eating fruit from your favourite tree. Before going to harvest, you must first till the soil, plant the tree, and nourish it until it blooms. Have patience with your practise. The fruits are close by.

Meditation versus Talking Therapy WORDS MARY-LOU STEPHENS


here’s an old saying, “Least said, soonest mended.” It’s no longer heard very often. The expression, “The least said the better” is still used but in a very different context to the one that was originally meant. There was a time when people agreed that talking about things did not make them better. That indeed discussion about a disagreement or problem would only make it worse. The belief was that a bad situation could be more quickly forgotten if people stopped talking about it. These are no longer popular notions. Monstrous abuses have been kept secret by victims too afraid to speak out. Some secrets are toxic. Talking in these cases is imperative. But what about in our everyday lives, with our day-to-day neuroses and insecurities? Everyone wants to talk about their problems. There are talk shows devoted to it. Does it help? Not always. Endlessly talking about our feelings can sometimes keep us stuck in the very feelings we’re trying to process and move on from. In my own experience I have been to too many counsellors and therapists

and spent years in Twelve Step programs. They’ve all been helpful to a point. I was shocked to discover though, at my first silent meditation retreat, that events that I had talked through with these therapists and situations I thought I’d recovered from had not been healed at all. In deep meditation I realised they were still there. Not gone, just buried. Meditation breaks down the wall between the conscious mind, the mind we think is in control, and the unconscious mind that really is driving everything we do and think. Our conscious mind keeps us busy and distracted with beliefs, justifications, blame and solutions. It works things out, it comes up with answers and then we think we’re done and move on. Not so. It’s a shock to realise how little power our thinking minds have. The power lies beneath. If we are willing to stick with it then meditation can show us how unconscious conflicts are processed and recreated in the mind on a moment-to-moment basis. I’ve had realisations when I’ve been meditating that I never would have had from a life-

time of talking. With further meditation, I have been able to process them and finally let them go. It’s surprising then that Jungian critics claim that meditation is regressive, fosters dissociation and neglects the unconscious. This is countered by other theorists who contend meditation may help us access previously unconscious material and gain transformative insight into emotional conflicts. A recent study has shown that meditation rivals other specific therapies such as talk therapy. The study focussed on mindfulness meditation practised for 30 minutes a day. This type of meditation emphasises acceptance of feelings and thoughts without judgment. What to believe then in a world of contradictory thoughts and theories? Perhaps it is time to go beyond thought, beyond theory and into the world of the experiential. Perhaps it is time to give meditation a try.

Imagine your house and all the cables in it (phone, internet, electricity), and what would happen if all of these services were not available when you needed them, how would you feel? Chances are you might feel disconnected at not being able to communicate when you needed to. Therefore the more balanced your hormones are, the better everything connects and communicates. STRESS produces acid, depleting your body of oxygen. A lack of oxygen produces lower energy and causes your entire system to slow and shut down. Stress can leave you feeling tired, disconnected and can lead to making poor decisions, overeating, binging on unhealthy fast foods and alcohol.

As a result you lack energy and generally feel unwell. To effectively lose weight the body needs energy to remove these toxins from the liver, digestive system, kidneys, lymph glands and other elimination organs.

Amalgams: to remove

or not to remove?



hat are the advantages of having amalgam fillings? Are there any at all? Have you ever thought about the concerns of having amalgam in your teeth longterm? What would be your options? Amalgam restoration can cause cracks on your tooth and expose you to unnecessary mercury vapour which is a toxic element. Some dentists may abide by your decision to remove your amalgam fillings but lack the necessary equipment and experience to remove them in the safest way possible. If unsafely removed, amalgam fillings release huge amounts of poisonous mercury vapour and negatively affect everyone. There is a significant difference between being mercury free and mercury safe. A practise that abides by a safe protocol is looking to minimise exposure from toxic mercury vapour for the safety of the dentist, staff,

patient and environment. That includes isolation of the affected tooth with a rubber dam, avoiding excess heating and cutting in chunks during removal, air filtration, high suction, immediate disposal of debris of amalgam properly and then a cleanse done by the patient. We recommend patient detoxification protocols to assist with body cleansing to improve general health. Options for replacement will depend on the size of the restorations. We offer composite to porcelain restorations including CAD/CAM (Computer Aided and manufacturing restorations).

– The Best

Anti-Ageing Product for your Skin

s we age, our skin begins to produce less oil, becoming drier and loose (think of a dry prune). This causes us to not only look old, but feel old too. There are ways to get tighter and younger looking skin without drastic cosmetic surgery. Anti-ageing focusses on the whole aspect of ageing, as opposed to a wrinkle cream which only focusses on one thing; wrinkles. Remember ageing isn’t just the appearance of wrinkles; it’s the sagging skin, uneven skin tone and dark spots. Oil treatments can include skin firming ingredients which help to hydrate, firm, tighten and lift the skin. In winter being in heated rooms, using hot showers, our skin becomes especially dry. Oil is the BEST way to keep our skin moist and firm. Oils can be used as a serum morning and night, on their own or under your normal moisturiser. They

Sunshine Dental Care

can also be used under your sunscreen as added protection. If you are looking to have healthier, younger-looking skin without exposure to chemicals, toxins or harsh treatments, consider adding face oils to your skincare routine. Yes, it turns out the skincare ingredient we’ve feared most of our lives can actually transform our skin. Just as oils rich in essential fatty acids are required in our daily diet to keep our bodies healthy, the right skincare oils are also necessary to keep our skin healthy too. Essential oils like rosehip, argan, chia, pomegranate, immortelle and camellia are all loaded with vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids; squalene, Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9. The active ingredients in these oils can help to revive, nourish, hydrate and regenerate skin cells, boost collagen, minimise fine lines and wrinkles. When oils are applied to the skin, they are absorbed directly into the top

layers of the epidermis, where they instantly go to work to improve the lipid barrier function. More often than not you’ll see immediate results from the first application. Face Oils versus Creams Creams are mostly waxes and water, with a few oils thrown in. Waxes form an occlusive layer on the skin, which helps to hold moisture in. There are two downsides to waxes: wax buildup may lead to clogged pores and the wax barrier may prevent the oil component of the cream (the part of the product that actually benefits skin) from penetrating. This is likely the reason why creams typically deliver a higher level of diminishing results over time. They will work, at first, because they help to initially hold in moisture, but as time goes on the wax barricade may prevent oils from delivering nutrients, like essential fatty acids, to the skin.

This is the ultimate guide to living Paleo. After the birth of her dairy-intolerant son Troy, Marlies Hobbs had a new outlook on life and a sincere appreciation for the effects of food on our physical (and mental) health. Her husband, Jai, first discovered the Paleo concept through CrossFit training, and after only a short time eating Paleo meals, the Hobbs family experienced remarkable improvements to their health and wellbeing. The Paleo Café concept was born when former environmental lawyer, Marlies realised that it wasn’t social or convenient to maintain this lifestyle. The first Paleo Café opened in Cairns on 3rd October 2012, launching as a franchise business in March 2013 and has since expanded Australia wide. Marlies’ passion for offering guidance to others when making the change to the Paleo lifestyle, together with the amazing recipes developed with the input of experienced chefs in the Paleo Café kitchen, led to the creation of her cookbook. It provides practical information and advice on living Paleo along with 130 world-class Paleo recipes, all tried and tested in the Paleo Café kitchen.

Our Unforgettable Experience WORDS JULIE and DAVID COLEMAN


og agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Recently we attended the National Agility Titles 2014 held at Dogs Queensland, Durack; we were a major sponsor of this event. It was one of the first times we have left our business premises to attend an unforgettable and very educational experience. As manufacturers we don’t get out much but this was the perfect avenue to showcase our high performance treats direct to the perfect candidates, highly trained agility dogs. From the moment we set up, we could see owners struggling to keep their dogs walking in a straight line past our marquee. The smell of our treats was just too much for many of our targeted audience. We were in doggy heaven, we had many samples set up for tastings, and we can genuinely say we did not have one failure in three days. Owners were left

red-faced and many times we heard, “oh my dog does not eat treats, but they just ate yours”! We saw a lot of highly trained dogs being very disobedient around our treats, they just could not get enough, it was so funny, and they were standing up on their hind legs at our tables, grabbing bags out of boxes, sticking their mouths in the sample bowls to gobble what they could, we genuinely made so many new four-legged friends which gave us many unforgettable memories. LOYALTY is the ONLY pet treat brand in the Australian market for which each and every product: • Is 100% Australian made • Made from 100% ‘free range’ sourced feedstock • Made from 100% pure meat, NO additives • Made using our patented Nutrieseal™ process, we are the only manufacturers in the world with this low temperature dehydration process within a sealed, sanitised environment and then pasteurised, not cooked or otherwise processed

• Is not irradiated • Made at our factory with a HACCP programme and which is certified and annually audited to Food Safe Australia (Qld) standards • Has composition and nutrient values tested by independent NATA laboratories We have a new website not far off, but if you want the very best in a pet treat we welcome you to visit us at our manufacturing facility 3/20 Enterprise Street, Caloundra (off Industrial Avenue, back building behind Emro) Mon-Fri, 7.00am to 2.00pm. or purchase online at

Painting a Picture for Animal Rights WORDS TANITA CREE


rt can comfort people or sometimes take them out of their comfort zones. That’s what comes to mind when you look upon works by artist and animal rights activist, Jo Frederiks. Within each piece of her artwork she demonstrates not only her love for animals, but her conviction that they deserve treatment so much better than what mankind currently offers. Jo, a 48-year-old artist living in the picturesque town of Murwillumbah, realised at a young age animals were suffering needlessly at the hands of mankind. Growing up on a million acre cattle station in Central Queensland, she was able to see firsthand just how cruelly humans treat other species, and it was this that inspired her to become a vegan. After a career as a model and cover girl, Jo studied at The Arts Academy in Brisbane, graduating with Honours. Since then, she has had many solo and joint exhibitions, including recent shows in the Ukraine and Germany, and an appearance on the popular art television series, ‘Put Some Colour In Your Life’. Jo’s love of animals is never more apparent than when she holds a pencil

When looking at the facts and figures, one cannot help but realise that animal rights is now the greatest social injustice since the abolition of slavery. or a paintbrush. Though she works in varying mediums, Jo favours graphite and oil paint, utilising these to bring her images to life on paper or canvas. Each drawing is sensitive, exquisite, and beautifully detailed, offering a rare glimpse at the depth and character to each individual animal. Though her artwork has always been predominantly animal based, it is only in the last few years that Jo has begun to utilise her works to raise awareness for animal cruelty. It is her next major exhibition, ‘The Animal Holocaust’, that promises to expose the well-hidden plight of helpless animals, and force those ‘comfortable’ in their ignorance to sit up and pay attention. When asked about the significance of using the term ‘holocaust’, Jo very calmly explained her reasoning:

“The definition of holocaust is, ‘great or total destruction of life’. Well, the fact that we needlessly torture and kill two billion innocent, sentient animals each week is a holocaust of mind-blowing proportions. That’s not counting the one billion sea creatures we butcher every three hours on average. It’s utterly barbaric, and completely unsustainable.” As it was Jewish survivors, such as Nobel Prize Laureate’s Issac Bashevis Singer and J.M. Coetzee, that first made the comparison, Jo has no problem utilising the analogy between the Jewish holocaust and the modern day animal holocaust. Factually correct and well documented by acclaimed historian Charles Patterson in ‘Eternal Treblinka’, the same justification for killing has been used in both cases: the other is a lesser being. When looking at the facts and figures, one cannot help but realise that animal rights is now the greatest social injustice since the abolition of slavery. In this modern day and age of technology and freedom of information, ignorance is no longer an excuse for abuse or suffering. Jo realises that her confronting art

Humanitarian of the Year, Victorian of the Year, and Medal of Order of Australia winner, Phillip Wollan, Jo hopes to thrust her message into the public sphere. It was Dr Helmut Kaplan that made the definitive statement: “Our

Are you stressed, fatigued and unmotivated? Could your digestive system be making you unhappy? Could you solve your happiness puzzle with these missing puzzle pieces? Could it be bacteria? Researchers at McMaster University have supportive evidence that bacteria residing in the gut influence brain chemistry and behaviour. When there was a change in the gut flora of the test subjects increased anxiety and behaviour change was noted. For years these bacterias have been seen to be harmless, but the negative impact of specific strains of bacteria on the brain are documented. Pathogenic bacteria have the potential to cause havoc on your digestive system and indirectly may cause Serotonin to drop. Serotonin is your happy, relaxing neurotransmitter. Not many people are aware that it is predominantly made in the gut. Functional bacteria (the good guys) are often overlooked, they assist in breaking down your food and keeping your gut healthy.

What about heavy metals? Do you have amalgam dental fillings? Have you worked in the mines? Or in close contact with metals such as an electrician using copper wiring? Do you use copper cookware? Or drink from copper pipes? Heavy metals are linked to depression, fatigue, erratic moods, digestive problems and many other neurologic issues. HRT and use of the pill can cause copper to increase – this is because of the high levels of oestrogen, the likely symptoms could be unexplained headaches, PMS, depression and mood swings. Heavy metals should always be tested.

Do I have the condition pyroluria? A very strange word, I know, maybe that is why so many people haven’t heard of it? Pyroluria is a genetically determined metabolic condition. If you have this condition your demand for certain nutrients (particularly B6 and zinc) is high. These two nutrients are essential for neurotransmitter production, such as serotonin and dopamine. Pyrolurics are more likely to suffer with depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, autism, alcoholism, strong fatigue, temper outbursts, IBS, joint pain, memory loss, or low stress tolerance.

What about your nutrient absorption? Most people who come to the clinic eat a fairly good diet, some exceptional! But they still feel unhealthy. Many triggers such as stress, food intolerances, bacterial overgrowth and hormone imbalance may result in poor nutrient absorption, so no matter how clean your diet is you may not be getting the full reward until it is corrected. Clinically there is testing to determine the extent of damage to the gut lining.
