hat is holistic beauty you may ask? For a fashion model, beauty may be related to physical attributes that are part of establishing a career and part of their trademark. And for others it’s about striving to attain that ‘fashionable look’ that is deemed by society as ‘ideal beauty’. The beauty industry is what it is. When we look at beauty more holistically and more dynamically in our lives, beauty can be seen everywhere if we take the time to look and make a point of noticing it in ourselves and others. It’s the ultimate in being present and from noticing beauty within and also around us, we become more grateful. And why not take up the challenge this month by emailing us your words, photos of beauty you have captured in your travels, it might be your own thoughts, quotes, photos of

you and others, places, events and spots in nature… All and all, it’s about being kind to ourselves when we see our so-called ‘flaws’ and also allowing ourselves to choose what feels expansive and ‘beautiful’ for us (very individual and subjective). The type of holistic beauty that doesn’t fade over time is the energy that shines from within and creates a connection with others and the earth wherever we travel. And what’s wrong with wanting to look our best, age gracefully and look after our skin, hair and body? We cover a range of perspectives on this very big topic this month and it was so lovely to find some time with Sam Sargent recently and share her wisdom and way of being on page 1213! Enjoy!

Healthy Mars Bar Cheesecake RECIPE THE MERRYMAKER SISTERS – EMMA AND CARLA

CARAMEL FILLING 1½ cup dates (soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes then drained) ¼ cup coconut milk (canned) ¼ cup coconut oil CHOC TOPPING ½ cup coconut oil ½ cup raw cacao 2 tbsp nut butter or tahini 1 tbsp natural sweetener Pinch of salt Method: Line a 24cm (10 inch) springform cake tin with baking paper. BASE Place all the base ingredients into a food processor or blender. Whiz until well combined, it will become almost a smooth butter. Yum! Spread the mix in to the prepared tin, ensure it is even. Place the tin into the freezer.

Serves: 20 Prep time: 3 hours Ingredients: BASE 1 cup walnuts 1 cup shredded coconut ½ cup cashews 2 tbsp coconut oil 2 tbsp cacao ½ tbsp natural sweetener Pinch of salt NOUGAT FILLING 1 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight) 1 cup coconut milk (canned) 1 / 3 cup coconut oil 3 tbsp natural sweetener 2 tsp 100% vanilla extract

NOUGAT FILLING Using the food processor (don’t worry about washing it!) place all the filling ingredients and whiz until completely smooth (it will take around 5 minutes). Pour this delicious mixture over the top of the base and return to the freezer for about 20 minutes. CARAMEL FILLING Using the food processor (again, don’t worry about washing it) add all the

ingredients and whiz until completely thick and smooth. Carefully spread the caramel filling over the nougat filling. Place into the freezer for 2 hours until completely set. CHOC TOPPING Using the food processor (again, don’t worry about washing it) add all the choc topping ingredients and whiz until completely smooth. The friction from the blending will melt the ingredients together nicely. Take the cake out of the freezer and release the spring form. Then place the cake onto a stand or plate, then drizzle the choc topping over the cake until you have your desired look. We did a whole heap of squiggly lines! Because the cake is so cold, it should freeze like magic! Yay! Slice and enjoy! NOM! Merrymaker Tip: This is TOTALLY a treat. Like it’s a healthy treat but it’s still a treat and we don’t eat this kinda thing every day. We’d enjoy this once a week tops! That’s us, so figure out what works for YOU and what makes your head and body feel good! themerrymakersisters.com

CREATE YOUR WINTER WORDS SUZI LE FANUE and ELLEN TATTAM

I

mmune support is very important all year round but especially during winter. An understanding of the impact of stress, gastrointestinal health and a well-balanced diet including the following nutrients, will aid success in staying healthy this cold season. There are a few areas that should be looked into and they are: gut health, nutrient deficiencies and stress. Gut function: The gut is so important for immune function as it is home to trillions of bacteria that support our immune system, not to mention the fact that the gut is also home to a large portion of our immune system, between 70-80%! A great way to incorporate gut healing foods into your diet is to increase fermented foods such as sauerkraut and kombucha as they are loaded with good bacteria that support immunity. You can also have bone broth daily in soups and casseroles or look into making gelatin (grass fed form) based treats. The vital link between diet, gut bacteria and the immune system is important to understand as the types of food you eat will directly determine the levels of certain bacteria in your gut – in other words, a diet full of

whole, unprocessed foods, will help to repopulate the gut with good bacteria to support immune function. KEY NUTRIENTS FOR IMMUNE SUPPORT INCLUDE – Vitamin A: Enhances white blood cell function, resistance to infection and helps maintain skin and mucous membrane integrity. Vitamin A is also important to the optimal functioning of immune cells including natural killer cells, macrophages and neutrophils. Eat sweet potato, carrots, green leafy vegetables and butternut pumpkin. Vitamin C: White blood cells use vitamin C to fight infections, and in the situation of inflammation or microbial infection, levels of vitamin C are depleted. Vitamin C is found high in yellow capsicum, green leafy vegetables, papaya, kiwi fruit, broccoli, strawberries and oranges. Vitamin D: Studies have shown that the active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, modulates both innate and adaptive immune responses. During winter, levels usually drop and so increase in colds/flus and winter blues is seen frequently. Sources are high in cod liver oil,

salmon, portobello mushrooms, and SUNSHINE. Zinc: As zinc is not stored in the body, dietary intake is essential for critical development and function of cells that mediate both innate and adaptive immunity to support function of natural killer cells and phagocytic activity of neutrophils and macrophages. Zinc is found high in pumpkin seeds, seafood (oysters), wheatgerm, spinach, lentils, sesame seeds, cashews and quinoa. Stress impacts the immune system directly as this stress results in high levels of cortisol. Cortisol and corticosteroids may suppress lymphocyte production and function, which are a major component of the immune system used to help defend against and kill invading organisms in the body. As Naturopaths we recommend that you assess the nutrient density of the diet, your nutrient storage in the body, gut health and stress. Using simple strategies you can work on supporting your immune system on a daily basis.

COLONIC FAQs YOU’RE TOO EMBARRASSED TO ASK WORDS JOEL GRACE, Owner, Sunshine Colonics Health & Wellness Centre

S

o you’re out to lunch with a friend and they tell you they’ve been having colonics. You’re intrigued and interested to find out more, but there’s just some questions you’re too shy to ask, right? Never fear, I’ve put together the answers to all the tricky questions you want to know. How big is the tube? And how far ‘in’ does it go? There’s nothing to worry about! The tubes we use are pencil-thin, and they’re only inserted about an inch inside your bottom. In all honesty most people say it feels like the tube isn’t in far enough or they don’t feel it at all! Am I going to make a mess everywhere? Nope – no mess, no odour! The colonic bed is perfectly contoured to take care of everything for a surprisingly clean and comfortable treatment experience.

I have my period. Can I still do a colonic? Of course! Colonic Hydrotherapy can actually be very good during this time as it may help decrease the cramps and bloating often associated with menstruation. I’ve even had a number of clients report they’ve regained their regular period after not having one for years, just from cleansing with a series of colonics. When will I have my next bowel movement? Everyone’s different – some people will go the next day, whereas for others it’s completely normal NOT to have a bowel movement for a few days after a colonic. You’ve just expelled a large amount of waste, and it can take time before the colon muscles are strengthened enough to properly move digested food through your system.

What if I make ‘noises’ during my colonic? Got this one covered too. All the treatment room walls are sound proofed, so you can toot to your heart’s content and nobody will ever hear you! Do I have to look at what comes out? Well you don’t have to look at what comes out, but for most people that’s the most exciting part! There’s a viewing tube attached to the colonic unit so you can analyse all the interesting bits and pieces coming out of your gut – from old waste to gallstones to parasites and more! But for those more interested in watching something else, we can always put a relaxing DVD on instead for your viewing pleasure. If you’ve got any other questions you’re too embarrassed to ask your friends, feel free to call or email us! sunshinecolonics.com.au

T

hey say ‘change is as good as a holiday!’ And change seems to be my middle name at the moment with the magazine growing and we have also just finished building our house from scratch and have recently moved in. But even the excitement of ‘big change’ can have some effects on the body at times, otherwise known as eustress from positive life events. I must admit, I have not been one to take a lot of supplements in my life but recently I felt my body was calling out for some extra support due to these life transitions. I recalled a conversation with the owner of Green Nutritionals MicrOrganics about his products and was impressed with the research and ethics behind the brand. He explained how packed full of extra potency the organic products are due to the way they are sourced and bottled using glass jars.

I felt (intuitively) to boost my iron levels and provide some extra support to my immune system during winter… not that I usually get sick! I didn’t really have time to buy boxes of spinach, kale and citrus fruit, and my body wasn’t actually asking for those things at the time. I kept thinking about and imagining barley greens and chlorella in my mind’s eye, so thought it was time I stocked up my shelves and sent Green Nutritionals a message and order for the first time! I have taken the ‘Green Super Foods’ (which include the world’s five most nutrient-rich superfoods: Hawaiian spirulina, Yaeyama chlorella, organic barley grass and alfalfa plus organic marine plant minerals) for about three weeks and I have noticed my skin and hair are noticeably softer. It only took a few days to find the

right amount for my body and I am now taking about three capsules a day. The product is so nutrient dense, I don’t feel as hungry and my concentration and productivity levels have been boosted. These greens are unique because they contain marine plant minerals – a phytomineral complex containing 74 essential minerals and trace elements. The addition of these plant-sourced minerals multiplies calcium levels for example by a factor of 8! Thank-you to the Green Nutritionals MicrOrganics team, and the gorgeous glass straws with the little green glass frogs are so adorable and great for drinking green smoothies with ease and fun!!!

Beauty inside and out WORDS VANESSA FINNIGAN

I

wonder what it would take for all of us to be truly okay with what we look like and who we are? Sam Sargent is one woman leading the way with her insights into holistic beauty and she is a beautiful picture of health with an inner beauty that speaks volumes. Sam doesn’t just care about others, she is a great role model for what it means to ‘look after yourself’. What a great contribution to Mother Earth… and to Bangalow, NSW where she lives with her husband whom she adores. They regularly travel the world together, have lots of interests in common which include working in the healing fields, 12

12.indd 1

empowering others and sharing a love of vegan and vegetarian foods. Winding back the clock, Sam created her first business ‘Be Genki’ ten years ago, offering organic essential oils, stunning candles and uniquely crafted teas online. This heartfelt business was born from her desire to assist people and to find organic, ethically sourced products that work! She was also fascinated by the transformational stories she witnessed whilst completing her final placement as a nutritionist student at the ‘Jocelyn Centre’ in Sydney. Clients with anxiety were offered an holistic service featuring herbs and essential oils. At the same

time, she had a friend who was experiencing anxiety and taking some heavy pharmaceutical medication. Sam offered to make her friend a blend of essential oils and invited her to create a sacred space to nurture herself and use the oils in a bath. Sam also shared some information about whole foods and tips for creating an holistic lifestyle. About six weeks later, her friend called to say thank-you, and mentioned she was no longer taking medication. That was the beginning… and Sam’s supportive Mum and Dad encouraged her to create a business in order to reach out and assist more people. And so the ‘Be Genki’ range was brought to fruition.

Sam’s creativity and healing capacities continued to unfold… And she experienced an epiphany while at a Vipassana silent retreat and the four pillars of ‘Be Genki’ came to her: ‘Be Tranquil’, ‘Be Vibrant’, ‘Be Sensual’ and ‘Be Serene’. There is a different oil, candle and tea for each pillar with different healing affects. “If I have those four areas of my life balanced, I’m happy within myself and I find others are too,” said Sam. After she launched the range, the healing stories from mothers and children with sleeping problems who improved after using the ‘Be Tranquil’ products, brought tears to her eyes. And men were drawn to the ‘Be Vibrant’ range to assist with muscle fatigue and as a ‘pick me up’ to wake up in the morning. After the ease and success of ‘Be Genki’, Sam went on to create her second business, ‘Be Naturally You’ four years later. She was inspired by her own interest to find her favourite organic hair products, skin and body care items, makeup and perfumes as well as providing tips, recipes and education. Because Sam is so interested in research and sourcing quality, ethical products for the mind, body and spirit, it’s a relief to know you can rely on her site to provide a range of chemical free, effective products. It takes the guesswork out and makes it a breeze to find these alternatives from one site. And what a joy to look and feel good and ‘be you’ naturally! “If my husband Shaun and I can look at ourselves in the mirror at the end of the night and say we are happy with ourselves and what we are doing and haven’t compromised on who we are, then that’s really cool. We want to love what we do and be in integrity with who we are.”

Vanessa: What messages have you received about beauty in your life? Sam: I find it interesting these days that young kids are becoming aware of appearances at a really young age. I didn’t really start to think about it or start wearing makeup until I started hanging out with boys around thirteen years of age but it seems to be the trend these days for it to start much earlier. Throughout my life I’ve always struggled with the notion of ‘beauty’ and what it is. Growing up from a teenager to my late twenties I received so many messages about who or what is beautiful, and for me it was mixed messages. In other people’s eyes I was too thin, too fat, or my hair was too thin. And through my eyes I thought my lips were too big so I used to hide them with concealer. I thought my butt was too big, as it wasn’t flat like other people’s. It’s hilariously funny for me to look back on this, as none of those judgments concern me at all anymore, and they were once so significant to me. It wasn’t until I said to myself, “I can’t do this anymore. To hell with what other people think and what society thinks. I can’t live like that, I have to find a way to be at peace with me.” If we can get back to being kind and caring to ourselves, then we are naturally radiating beauty. At the same time I don’t think we can dismiss our physical

SAM’S TOP HOLISTIC BEAUTY TIPS FOR WINTER

1 2 3

Put on a jumper, make hot cocoa and allow yourself some sleep-ins.

Dry body brushing is a good daily practice and then use an organic plant-based body oil afterwards. Eat good wholefoods, drink purified water and herbal teas.

4 5 6

Remember to increase good fats: avocados, nuts, drizzle olive oil over foods. Enjoy a little bit of sunshine – but don’t bake for hours, wear a hat!!

Have a nice warm shower to soothe and nurture yourself.

appearance. I want to look my best, age gracefully, make an effort and turn up as me. It’s an honouring of me to be the best version of me but I have no desire to force myself to look like someone else. Vanessa: What advice would you give to women who don’t like the way they look or don’t enjoy their lives? Sam: I would encourage someone to ‘flip it’ if you don’t like your life. I have been there before. When I was twentyone years old I had no idea how I was going to get through life. It was all too challenging for me with the expectations and judgments I was placing on myself. If you don’t like your life I’d encourage you to let go of the expectations and judgments you’ve placed upon yourself. And little by little start taking action by doing things that you love to do. Find whatever it is that you like doing for fun and keep doing it. It could be the simplest thing like going for a walk in the park. Take time to genuinely care for yourself. Start by making an effort to get up and get dressed and slowly start showing up in your life. One day you will wake up and say ‘Wow, I had a really nice day,’ because of these incremental stages. When I moved to the United States for a couple of years I barely knew anyone and it was lonely at times. After months of me feeling sorry for myself I thought, “I have to change this.” So I went to yoga classes and gave a wellbeing talk at a local health food store and that’s when I ended up making a beautiful friend. The only one who can change your life is you. It’s as simple as taking small baby steps in the direction of what you genuinely enjoy. If you don’t like the way you look, find the one thing that you do like about your appearance and focus on that. Then after a few weeks, add another attribute that you like about yourself, and on and on. Remember to look through kind eyes, and be patient with yourself as you’re learning these new ways of thinking, doing and being. Sam said with the advent of social media and selfies, you can ask yourself if you are trying to portray yourself in a certain way: Are you really happy with what you see in the mirror? What would it take to be happy in your own skin? SAM is a Certified Nutritionist, Aura-Soma Consultant and Access Consciousness Bars® Facilitator, to name just a few of her speciality areas. benaturallyou.com Holistic Bliss | AUGUST 2016 |

We forget that we are souls having a human experience and that we may became ‘fixated’ and ‘zoned’ in to one particular thing and we learn by addiction. When we understand this, there is no good or bad to that ‘addiction’ and our beauty of our self blossoms. The holistic beauty is connected to seeing the best in ourself on all levels. An addiction is part of our inner holistic beauty if we understand the body and what is happening. Addictions are held in three areas of the body and these can easily be assisted once you know and understand why you have the addiction. This will also assist the holistic beauty of the mind, body, and spirit. The first area is the liver which is about organising and planning. When you enjoy something the liver says ‘OK – all body parts plan everything based around feeling good with this substance or activity’ and the liver organises the body parts to be aligned with that ‘good

feeling’. The next body part is the large bowel which is about obsessiveness and possessiveness. Related to an addiction of feeling good, the large bowel will hold on to this concept and become obsessive and possessive with this substance/ action. Have you ever seen what a drug user will do to get his/her next drug fix and how they obsess on how to get it? I have when I was nursing and the large bowel goes crazy with spasms and conditions like colitis, constipation, Chrohn’s disease. And lastly the adrenal glands are based on motivation and if they are addicted to a substance or activity emotionally they will be driven to have ‘it’. Holistic beauty within the body is looking at all aspects of care: emotional, physical, spiritual, mental and chemical. It is looking at the person as a whole. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So today review your life, see your brilliance, know that whatever is happening ‘it is OK’. Say to yourself ‘I do not know how, but it always works out’. This simple affirmation will help

HOLISTIC BEAUTY

What is INNER-

beauty?

WORDS JULIE JENKINS

T

he first thing we may think about is how we think and feel about issues within our life. If we do not think nice thoughts, we do not shine on the inside, therefore our external bodies do not emit good energy and it becomes a chain reaction!! Now whilst this is all well and good, it leaves a lot left out. Remember that we are PERFECT just the way we are, our choices, thoughts and feelings are PERFECT for us at that time – that does not mean that they reflect our soul’s divine nature, they are just our choices; whether we choose the negative choice for ourselves or the positive, it is simply nothing more than OUR CHOICE. So getting back to inner beauty – when we live embracing our divine gifts (which are those gifts that our soul has from its origin – we all have them) in a productive and constructive way, we emanate this gift and this is our inner beauty – we may see them as “characteristics” and not “gifts” but they are in fact divine gifts.

Let’s look at what these are: Divine Compassion: This is the energy of nature and compassion. Souls who are centred in this energy are highly compassionate, tolerant and understanding. Divine Creation: This is the energy of manifesting and building at the level of the physical, material plane. Divine Order: Souls centred in this energy bring in the energies of balance, harmony, beauty, art, law, order, perfection and peace. Divine Love: This is the energy of love and healing. Souls centred in this energy are innate experts at being in relationship with others and are natural healers. Divine Self Expression: This is the energy that is centred in communication, authenticity; the spiritual teacher. Divine Truth: Souls centred in this energy help us live and take a stand for our personal, unique truth and help us see ourselves for who we truly are. Divine Power: Souls centred in this

energy help show us how powerful we are as the creators of our own experience. These souls know the difference between power with and power over!! Divine Wisdom: Souls centred in this energy bring the inherent wisdom of the universe into the physical world. Each soul possesses each of these gifts but in different percentages. So for those of us whose divine gift is compassion, then if we foster and nourish this gift within ourselves, our inner beauty will indeed be seen and felt by others. As we nourish our divine gifts, we are able to manifest and live the life here on earth that we wish to, through aligning ourselves with our true nature. So look to aligning with your divine gift to really shine!! If you are not sure what that is for you, at Natura we offer Soul Profiling within the Akashic Records and help you to reconnect to your own divinity. naturahlc.com.au

Beauty WORDS ANNE ALECKSON

B

eauty is in the eye of the beholder is a popular expression and it’s served us well over the years but I’d like to suggest that it’s time to take on another belief; one that takes into account our evolution into the new human that is currently occurring on this planet. “Beauty is in the soul laid bare.” – Anne Aleckson So, how do you lay bare your soul when you are living a human life and all that that life entails – the busyness, the rush to get everything done, the race to be the richest, strongest and most successful, or indeed the desire to keep up with the Joneses? It starts with clearing out the clutter of your unconscious mind so that your conscious mind and your super-conscious mind can have a level of communication that allows you such clarity of purpose that you are able to confidently travel through your life following your intuition or your soul’s voice at every turn. In the Mind Your Own Vibration

STRIPPED BARE

philosophy, there are three levels of the mind. 1. CONSCIOUS MIND 2. UNCONSCIOUS MIND 3. SUPER-CONSCIOUS MIND Working daily with these three levels of mind it becomes clearer and clearer to me that when we delve deep into the unconscious mind and un-attach the core wounding as well as exposing and healing the limiting belief system and fear system we become closer to our soul self or higher self. In other words as we clear out the mind clutter we clean out the filter by which all communication from your super-conscious mind through to your conscious mind passes through. Thus allowing clearer inspiration and a level of knowing that is far beyond intuition, to become part of our lives. Let me explain what I know the super-conscious mind to be so that you can easily interpret that expression and put your own name to it.

The super-conscious mind is the gateway or channel to all other time, dimension and aspects of self (past and future lives etc) and the non-physical energy that exists within the entire Universe and of which we each are part of and connected to. We can spend our entire lives disconnected or pinched off from our connection to that larger part of our selves or we can choose to open that channel and become conscious again of our true beauty… the beauty of a soul laid bare, no limiting beliefs and wounding, just pure source living a life as the new human. The journey back to your superconscious mind begins with getting in touch with your Soul Vibration. What is your Soul Vibration? Take the quiz and find out how to connect with it daily and you’ll receive an exclusive invitation to a free Soul Activation Session. AnneAleckson.com

hat if is it possible to re-grow teeth? Have sparkly white teeth and pink healthy gums

at any age? What if your body had a natural system to deal with tooth decay? What if you could re-grow gum tissue and regenerate bone? A happy, healthy mouth is a key to longevity and is about so much more than appearances! Recent studies have shown that up to 80% of disease in the body can be linked to issues in the mouth. Whether that’s bacteria from decay, stress from grinding and clenching or inefficient digestion of food from poor saliva and pH in the mouth – the health of the mouth is essential to the health of the whole body. The mouth has to do with eating and survival – if you can’t chew your food and ingest it, survival is very much an issue; communication – expressing yourself; pleasure – the hedonism of enjoying every mouthful of food and

teeth and body

drink; sex – the mouth as an erogenous zone; and status – even, white teeth are today’s standard measure of beauty and success. Afraid of the dentist? The whole mouth can be a rich ground for limitations, fears, judgments, and self-esteem issues. Add to this all the lifetimes we may have endured accidents, gum disease, rotting teeth, and tooth extraction without anaesthesia. For many people the smell of the dentist’s office and the sound of the drill is enough to induce anxiety and stress! So what else is possible? A totally natural system that uses your body’s own capacities. Dr Tom Kolso has been a practising dentist in the US for over twenty years. He became aware that while modern dentistry has come a long way in the last 100 or so years, it is still very much about amputating parts of gum, tooth or bone and filling the gap with a foreign substance. He thought more must be

possible, and over the last 18 years, he has developed a system of activating the body’s own capacities to restore and balance itself, combined with the tools of Access Consciousness® including the verbal processes and clearings. It’s called Happy Mouth™. Happy Mouth is not a replacement for seeing the dentist – and we still need to brush and floss! The system includes touching points on the head which activate different systems relating to gums, teeth, the TMJ joint, lymph, bone restoration, and more; then there are verbal clearings to dissipate past trauma, conditioning and judgments. At present the system is available only as online trainings in the form of a telecall series (starting this August). The calls are information packed and you can email in your questions. A practitioner training is planned for Australia early in 2017. yourhappymouth.com

Is it time to WORDS SARAH YIP

W

hen I was in my 20s, I used to have severe period pain. In an effort to avoid painkillers, I signed up for a bellydancing course. I’d read that moving your hips could help with hormonal issues. Wow. What a great decision. Not only did I get super fit (my teacher was an ex-aerobics guru with class names like ‘Death by Shimmy’), my monthly cramping stopped completely. I also fell in love with my body. I realised that my period pain came from hating my feminine softness. Back then, I couldn’t see the plus side of being so sensitive. Now, I make a living from this as a psychic reader and counsellor. Amusingly, my teacher’s mantra was ‘embrace your wobble’. What a wise owl she was. Isn’t it true, that holistic beauty is an attitude, not a look? Have you ever met someone who was obsessed with keeping their clothes/ house/children clean? I’m not talking about being organised – I’m referring to people who think that any kind of mess

embrace your WOBBLE?

(including crying) is some kind of moral failure. What a shame they haven’t yet learned to declutter their thinking. If only they’d take a leaf out of nature’s books, they’d understand that diversity and chaos is natural. A rainforest isn’t beautiful because all the trees are the same height, colour and shape. It’s just the opposite – the healthiest ecosystems have plants of all shapes and sizes. The weirder, the better. They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I prefer to say, beauty is in the Third Eye of the beholder. Your Third Eye chakra (or sixth sense) is located above your eyebrows, and includes your mind and eyes. It’s the site of your inner vision (clairvoyance) and compassion. At any time, chakras can be underactive, overactive or balanced. Someone with an underactive Third Eye appears sceptical, tired and moody. They don’t just look a gift horse in the mouth, they take it to the dentist.

Someone with an overactive Third Eye appears over-analytical, anxious, and overwhelmed by psychic input (leading to insomnia, sinus issues and headaches). When your Third Eye is balanced, you think for yourself, see beauty easily, and don’t criticise, because you know that ‘you become what you judge’. Your logic and intuition are friends, not enemies. This quality makes you attractive, because people feel loved around you. The Third Eye correlates to the number 6 in numerology, so 666 is about releasing judgments. In China, it’s actually a lucky number! How can you balance your Third Eye? By eating foods that nourish your brain, meditating, drinking spring water and working with blue crystals. Also, gazing at the stars, sunrise, or sunset to remind yourself of the big picture. Gratitude is beautiful… so is your wobble. sarahyip.com

GRATITUDE and BEAUTY – the

innocence of BEING

WORDS SORAYA SARASWATI

T

here is a simple truth that has proven itself over and over again to me; that gratitude and beauty are the intertwined lovers that allow joy to flow into being. I recently completed writing a memoir about a challenging time of grief following the loss of my son to suicide. In the book I share how important the gift of gratitude was in helping me to come shining through this painful period of bereavement. Beauty was hidden behind a veil of painful emotions for a time but it was gratitude for the small daily things that became my lifeline back to walking in beauty. A deep sense of gratitude continues to live in my heart, reminding me daily of the beauty that is always there to see if my eyes are open. With gratitude in my heart, beauty smiles at me from the faces of strangers

and friends, she comes dancing into view as a ray of sunshine, a flower, a bird, a sunset, or the sound of children playing. Beauty surrounds us and if we allow ourselves to truly embrace its gifts, joy will bubble up and fill our heart. Beauty has also become a lucrative business, but it has come at a terrible cost. Purely cosmetic beauty is only skin deep, and as we strive to find beauty outside ourselves or in the masks we wear, we lose touch with the true beauty within. We also lose touch with gratitude for our own true nature and the gifts hidden within our unique person. As we lose touch with gratitude, joy becomes as illusive as the beauty we chase. We begin to perceive ourselves as wrong; feeling too fat, too thin, too tall and basically not good enough. We have missed the point, for personal beauty is truly in the eye of the

beholder and it shines from within. The wizened face of a beloved elder can be as beautiful as the innocent face of a child or the beauty of youth. Innocence offers great beauty and this is why it is easier for us to recognise beauty in nature, small children or flowers. Innocent beauty arises when there is simply being with no attempt to force or deny what is. A flower is not trying to be beautiful it is simply allowing its true nature to be expressed. In the same way we need not to try to change ourselves, but instead if we allow gratitude and the innocence of being to arise, true beauty will shine in every corner of our world. I leave you with this quote by Steve Maraboli: “Your ability to see beauty and possibility is proportionate to the level at which you embrace gratitude.” sorayasaraswati.com

awareness IN

WORDS JULES O’NEILL and FI HARDY

A good friend knows all your best stories; a best friend has lived them with you. See the difference?” – Anonymous In today’s world, friendship can be equal to the best love affair you can experience. You need to be willing to open up, show all your colours and share who you are to receive the results we are talking about. The results of an intimate aware friendship – a soul friendship – can be profoundly magical. If you are reading this now you are most likely a person who loves to grow and personally develop. Even though we can give a lot of this to ourselves, our egos can also prevent a lot of who we are from being discovered and loved.

FRIENDSHIP

Greater self depths are found in intimate soul friendships. So many times we can unconsciously fall into negative patterns and programs. None of us want to do this and many of us go to workshops, read books, see awesome practitioners to help free ourselves from these and give ourselves a better life. Opening up authentically to a conscious friend can give you this and so much more. An aware friend, who loves you and wants you to be the best you can be, can be another set of eyes for you when you fall into these negative patterns and programs. She/he can sometimes point out things in a warmer and softer way then our partners can sometimes. All of us have dreams and goals we desire to achieve. We talk about them and sometimes even write them down. Sharing them within an aware committed friendship and asking to be kept accountable, is a sure way we can achieve these dreams and goals. In the

times we get stuck, lose our confidence, wander from our path or procrastinate, we can vulnerably open up and look at what is really behind it. This is so valuable in keeping to our authentic journey. Sometimes we need that kick up the behind and sometimes we need conscious redirection – this type of friendship offers both. As Fi and I write this, we are coming from a place where we share this type of friendship. We could not be the people we are today without it. We have been able to discover more of who we are and get to great vulnerable depths within ourselves. We are both clearer on our individual paths and walking them. It has made the up times so much more fun and the down times so much more soothing. The intention of this article is to inspire you to let this level of soul friendship in. If you would like to know more about how we live with using awareness in our friendship daily – have a look at the website: julesoneill.com

ALL

WORDS MARC DE BRUIN

A

s I am writing this article an interesting process is going on inside me. I am convinced we all possess a “dark side”: beliefs, ideas, opinions and other thoughts that are not working for us and are creating ripples on the water surface. Sometimes tidal waves! One of those waves has hit me recently and to stay with the metaphor – it has me frantically coming up for air. It feels like drowning, without actually physically dying. Recognise the feeling? The law of polarity states that everything has an equal and exact opposite. Dark vs light; wanted vs unwanted. That law is applicable to us as people as well. We have our light and bright side versus our dark and dim side. If there is one thing I learned along the mindfulness and self-discovery journey, it is that trying to avoid the unwanted “dark” sides of ourselves is useless. They always have a way of

catching up with us. Striving for only the wanted ‘light” sides is equally useless; they never stay with us. Finding the balance in the middle or, more clearly, accepting both sides of ourselves is what mindfulness is all about. One of my teachers once told me: “serenity is not seeking shelter from the storm; it’s finding peace within it”. That statement always stuck with me. I also found that actually doing the work (finding peace within) can be tricky. I was discussing this with my mentor Jean Sheehan and my dear friend and teacher Michael Roads. Both said, and I know it to be true, that we can only find serenity if we are willing to allow and feel both our polar opposites in our lives as “part of us”. We ARE both opposites, and everything in between. We ARE wanted and unwanted. We ARE light and dark. Trying to avoid one side and/ or crave the other side makes us deny

half of ourselves; half of the whole. Obviously that is often easier said than done, and that was my initial reaction to both my mentors as well. Especially when we are going through a rough patch with seriously negative emotions, we don’t believe we can find peace and totally accept ourselves. I KNOW they are right, though. Inner beauty to me is the realisation that even our darkest emotions are “us”, and are deserving of our love and attention. Mindfulness and self-compassion (or loving kindness) is the application of this truth. A moment to moment feelingawareness of what IS, no matter how light or dark, with no attachments to either. The whole of us is worthy of love and appreciation. Serenity is a state we can all achieve. Perhaps not easily; but the effort it requires is definitely worth it. simplifyinglife.com.au

Being YOU… IN AUSTRALIA WORDS DR DAIN HEER, international author, speaker and facilitator of change

T

here is so much I love about Australia – and it’s not just the space, beautiful oceans, beaches, nature and amazing wildlife. One of the wonderful things I have noticed about Australia is that there is more of a willingness to talk about anything; there is a tendency to not make people wrong for expressing themselves in whatever way they need to. There is an adventurous spirit in the people of Australia that contributes greatly to the sense of wonder and curiosity available in the world. It is a big part of why Australia is one of my favourite places to visit. See, I have this weird point of view that what if the journey to re-discovering and creating the phenomenal being called you, is the greatest adventure you will ever go on in life? I feel very lucky whenever I come to Australia to meet so many people who are willing to leap into that adventure head-on and become the

inspiration for a different possibility for so many others. I am grateful for every person who is willing to recognise the gift they are in the world, and invite others to see themselves as a gift also. Fifteen years ago, when I was deeply depressed and unhappy and I was not living the life I wanted to live, I didn’t see myself as a gift, but I knew things had to change. I made a demand to go on a different kind of journey, one where I was creating my life – where I got to be the one who chose what my life would be like. I was really making a demand to become fully alive. I desired to truly make a difference in the world, to be able to be happy, and to have the world become a happier place because I was in it. What I discovered was the more space I gave myself to be me, the more I gave up judgment of me. When I gave up the judgment, I was able to be

more present, vulnerable and willing to embrace what was strong about me. From there, I saw my entire world change. What if you, being you, is all it takes to change everything in your life; everyone around you, the world? And… what if you already know what you truly desire, you just haven’t given yourself the permission, or come across the tools that allow you to access that more easily? For over 15 years, Dain has been inviting people to embrace their true greatness – people from every culture, country, age and social strata of society. He has a completely different approach to healing by facilitating people to tap into and recognise their own abilities and knowing. Join DR DAIN HEER for a ‘Being You, Changing the World, the Beginning’ class, 18th November 2016 from 7pm live in Noosa, Australia or via live stream worldwide. drdainheer.com/noosa2016

Beauty SHINES

Y

ou have heard the old saying, ‘true beauty comes from within’ so why is it that some people seem to shine from every pore of their being; radiating a warmth of love that pulsates so brightly that you actually feel their presence, and others do not? These radiant ones have a light pouring from their face, through their eyes, heart and soul. They have a spiritual poise, an inner strength and wisdom that are tangible. So what is the difference between a person who shines and one who doesn’t? It is the light of their spirit that is shining within them. These shiny ones are living and working from their spirit! Not just their minds, not just their souls, emotions or thoughts but from the spark of divinity within. They know how to breathe, amplify and call on the ‘life force’ from behind the Sun/Son. They dedicate their life to the service of others and choose to be the purest channels that they can be. They flow in harmony with life,

nature, planetary influences and the universal law of love. They not only ‘know’ these spiritual truths that have been handed down through the ages, but they share them, for they know it is in giving, you also receive. They keep on keeping on when life gets tricky and rarely fall into poor me. They hold fast to the truth that they are the creator of their life and the ‘light within’ is king. They go within rather than blame someone else when tested. They consciously build their bodies of light, aligning physical, mental, emotional, etheric and astral bodies so that spirit, soul, mind and emotions and are balanced and holistically beautiful. They do not fear their shadow, but accept it as a part of their journey of self-discovery. So what can you do to amplify the light within you? 1. Daily connect to your spirit, breathe, go within. Open your heart,

4 steps to effectively deal with burn-out, depression, anxiety and lack of self-esteem and increase overall happiness and satisfaction in life. Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behaviour (MiCBT) is an evidence based modality – with scientific backing – which will allow you to successfully deal with a broad range of life situations. To be Mindful means to be aware of what is happening to you, without being caught up in any of it.

ou only have to get a waft of patchouli to sense its exotic and trademark sensual aroma. Like sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver and frankincense, it is a renowned fixative in the perfume world. With a deep, musky, base scent, you do not need many drops for its ability to hold top and middle notes for longer. Patchouli is also well revered in the beauty industry and added to many skincare formulas for its incredible antiageing properties. It blends beautifully with oils like frankincense, lavender, geranium and palmarosa and one drop can be added to your moisturiser to give it an extra boost. Patchouli has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and is beneficial for helping to heal acneprone or inflamed red skin. Lavender, tea tree and chamomile are wonderful oils to blend with patchouli for these conditions. You can also add this regenerating oil to a carrier-oil like rosehip or jojoba

Patchouli

as it makes a wonderful stretchmark and scar repairer. In particular, it has the ability to soothe and restore, so would be ideal during times like pregnancy and weight loss. Extracted from the leaves and twigs, this aromatic herbaceous shrub has been used throughout history to help relieve symptoms of coughs, colds, headaches, nausea and vomiting. Its calming, healing qualities bring gentle reassurance when unwell. One drop of patchouli blended with one drop of peppermint and rubbed onto the base of the skull, can do wonders for a headache. Along with magnesium, a blend of patchouli, black pepper, lemongrass and rosemary, would make an excellent sports rub to help relieve aching muscles and spasms. This blend could also be used in an Epsom salts bath. If you are looking for an oil to help relieve stress, anxiety and depression, this is the one to call on.

helpful to vaporise during times of convalescence and when getting back on your feet. A combination of lavender, patchouli and chamomile would make an excellent stress relieving and insomnia blend, especially when rubbed into the soles of the feet before you retire for sleep. For many when they inhale patchouli they will instantly be transported back to the 1960s where freedom, love and a total ‘burn the bra’ energy was embraced. If you would like to create a free, magical space and warm inviting aroma for your home, then add patchouli to ylang ylang, bergamot and lavender. And of course, with its remarkable aphrodisiac qualities (and perhaps this should come with a warning!) you can combine it in a massage blend or spritzer with ylang ylang, orange and rose for the ultimate romance experience! twenty8.com

BEAUTY OF BUSINESS

BUSINESS and politics DON’T MIX WORDS ROD DRAPER

I

t’s a strange thing that when an election is announced whether federal or state, the local economies seem to come to a screeching halt! It seems that this phenomenon is well documented and not just part of our collective antipolitician angst. Economies really do experience slowdowns during the election process leading up to, and for a little while following, a major election. A local business owner told me last week that she looked back through her books and found a definitive reduction in turnover in the weeks and months directly preceding an election. In economic terms, this is due to the movement in expectations, that is, when consumers know what to expect they are more happy to spend their money, but when some uncertainty comes into the equation, the same consumers keep their money close at hand presumably in case the country is propelled into a fiscal chasm by an inept government-

elect. Of course in Australia this is highly likely as our political processes are, by international standards, quite mundane. That is until recently; I’m sure some of us agree that some independents and micro-parties are about to have a loooong six-year party at our expense; so nail your shoes to the floor and hold on. In psychological terms this harks back to a primitive fear of the unknown. We are happy to spend money and have fun while we can be comfortable that we pretty much know what is happening in the near future even if that future is not to our liking or presents challenges we would rather not face. It is when we don’t know what the future holds, through fear of the unknown, or fear of what might happen, that we stop making decisions including purchasing decisions. So what can we as business people do to counter this negative political force impinging on our commerce? Well, it’s

human nature to fear the unknown and it’s equally human nature for our politicians to embellish this fear to try to win through a “whatever it takes” mentality. We can, however, reduce the effects that these phenomena have on us and our businesses, staff, families and communities by reducing the element of uncertainty. We know when an election is about to happen, so to a certain extent we can plan for these economic downturns, i.e. reduce stock heading into an election and arrange staff vacations at these times. Also we can encourage fixed terms at all levels of government so we, as the engine room of the economy can plan our next holiday! The other part is when we change our ‘gloom and doom’ points of view and keep creating and focussing also on what we are enthusiastic about, then we create outside ‘the status quo’ and then magic can often show up.

WELFARE to business millionaire;

discover this simple but powerful secret

WORDS SANDY FORSTER

H

aving your own business can be exciting! It can give you freedom, create abundance and allow you to make a difference doing what you love. However, it can also be stressful with long hours, money challenges and a continual cash flow crisis. I know – I’ve been there, done that. Because of my stupid decisions and having no real idea how to run a business, I’ve been chased by collection agencies and close to bankruptcy. I was $100,000 in debt and on welfare, however I’m blessed to have turned it all around and now I’m a spiritual millionaire who’s won multiple international business awards and I love showing others how they can do the same. I discovered secrets that worked in my own business and thousands of women entrepreneurs I support. These secrets when applied can make all the difference between a successful business and a complete failure – and let me tell you, I’ve had my share of those in the past! When running a business, it’s easy to get lost in the ‘doing-ness’ of it all.

The emails, phone calls, marketing, paperwork… all the ‘stuff’ which we often don’t enjoy but has to be done. Business becomes boring and our energy (and money flow) can stagnate. It’s not surprising that when we’re supported, everything can change. And I don’t mean hiring new staff members or putting on another sales person. I’m talking about asking the universe for support. You’ll be amazed how quickly you can inject energy, enthusiasm, passion and profits back into your business by tapping into the power of the universe. I’m a huge believer in combining proven practical business steps with metaphysical processes because the two together create magic. In my bestseller, ‘How to Be Wildly Wealthy FAST’, I share dozens of techniques which helped to turn my life around and one of my favourites is visualisation. I’ve seen how quickly my clients transform their business by using this simple but powerful secret. Taking the time to see your desired outcome, connect with your future

success and become at one with creating the income you desire, will bring it to you far quicker than all the ‘doing’ in the world. When you slow down your busy self, close your eyes and see your ideal future in your mind’s eye, you begin to unleash a force that is beyond anything you could imagine. When you combine forces with the universe, the results you create from your marketing, networking, advertising and other business activities, are far more powerful than you’d experience on your own. You’re guided to take inspired action. People, opportunities and circumstances appear before you as if my magic. You get into the flow, feel optimistic and excited about the possibilities. You become empowered, courageous and take actions you may not have otherwise. All this is possible with the universe on your side, orchestrating things behind the scenes.

SARAH SHEEHY: Healing trauma, abuse, anxiety and depression SARAH SHEEHY IS A POWERFUL HEALER AND HAS TRAINED FOR OVER 23 YEARS WITH DOREEN VIRTUE, UNITY COLLEGE OF HEALING, ANGEL ALCHEMY AND NATIONAL HEALING ROOMS OF AUSTRALIA. SHE IS ALSO A NATUROPATH/HOMOEOPATH.

S

arah understands what it feels like to be trapped and imprisoned by fear – how crippling it can be and how it can sabotage your life. She has experienced life-threatening illness and the trauma of emergency surgery and then subsequent anxiety and depression. She grew up with domestic violence and abuse and was bullied until she realised how to escape from the fears, pain and suffering that was holding her prisoner. Through this journey she is now in a place of peace, forgiveness and love and it is that joy that she chooses to share with her clients. It’s not always easy to step out of the pain of the past that we often become accustomed to, but the freedom and joy on the other side makes the effort so worthwhile that there is no comparison. What would your life be like with no resentment or fear? No pain? No sadness?

Through Angel Intuitive Healing, Sarah channels information from the Angels which relates directly to where you are in your journey and how to make the changes you want to in your life. The Theta Healing clears the old habitual subconscious beliefs allowing new positive beliefs to be formed – this powerful combination of healing creates change on a deep level. We don’t need to be living with emotional wounds that are still impacting us and the energy you feel once you are free is empowering. Sarah’s great joy and passion is to witness the profound changes in her clients as they are able to release old pain, suffering and trauma to become the person they choose to be. It is then that we can learn to trust in ourselves and the intuitive guidance we receive. Clients undergo transformations as they

are able to release that which has been holding them back and sabotaging their lives, enabling and empowering them to create the life they choose. Relationships shift and change as the relationship within changes. Clients say: “Sarah used Theta Healing to clear resentment and I was able to forgive my parents, I feel so much lighter and happier and the experience was amazing. For the first time in over a year I didn’t cry myself to sleep. I could feel the energy flowing through her and she is really here to help people – it is her calling in life. I cannot praise Sarah enough and wish I had met her years ago.” K., Brisbane For appointments on Skype or in person please email sarah.e.sheehy@hotmail.com

Raising the

vibration of EARTH

WORDS MAGGIE LANDMAN

B

y raising our own vibration, we bring ourselves into healing. By healing the Earth we raise her vibration. Higher vibrations bring in more light and transform us and the Earth into a new way of being. Each day we are given opportunities to notice or feel the energies of the Earth. The Earth IS speaking to us. Are YOU listening? “We take from her, we strip her bare, our needs never satisfied and the gentle Mother watches us learn to respect where we reside.” – excerpt from a poem channelled by Maggie Landman. Most areas of humanity live through the energy of “taking” from the Earth, rather than “giving” or living in harmony with the Earth. This imbalance is changing – thanks to those of us who are walking the Earth consciously, aware and awake, we are all part of the change towards harmony. We ALL have the ability to tune into the Earth and heal her. As an Earth Whisperer, I have been

able to share with others the energies that are coming to light to be healed. Some of Earth’s naturally occurring and man-made energies open to healing and harmonising are: ley lines, underground water, electrical magnetic fields (EMF) and energy of past traumatic events (murders, fighting, tribal war, burial grounds, to name a few). Some simple ways to help yourself and Mother Earth: • Certain crystals buried in the earth can be used to heal these distorted energies of the Earth. To heal EMF energy, bury a green moss agate or green tree agate on your property between the EMF source and your home. The Earth and your health will love you for it; • Enjoy the following Meditation daily to heal the Earth – Sit on the Earth (or imagine yourself sitting on the Earth), close your eyes and take 5 deep, slow breaths. Imagine our Earth, it may show up for you as

Heal the Earth Foundation

the planet we see from space or maybe a ball of light. Activate the energy of love in your heart by thinking of someone or something you love. See this energy of love stream out from your heart to your image of Earth, embracing it in love. Keep streaming love around the Earth for a few minutes then when you feel it is complete draw this planet into your heart. Feel the love for the Earth as you hold it in your heart. When you are ready, open your eyes, still aware of the love and connection you now have in your heart for the Earth. If each one of us has a shift in consciousness to take care of our Earth, our evolution to the new Earth and our ability to live in a new way of being, will be accelerated. MAGGIE LANDMAN is an Earth Whisperer, seeing disharmony on the Earth and correcting it to create peace. She can be contacted via email maggie@maggielandman.com or viewed at maggielandman.com

DIMENSIONALLY DIVINE offers you the

opportunity to experience the incredible WORDS VICKI BRYCE

Tesla’s Starhenge

What is Tesla’s Starhenge?’ For centuries people have travelled to the Great Pyramids to tap into the mystical energy that resides within the King’s Chamber. People have also travelled to Stonehenge in search of ancient knowledge within its boundaries. You can now experience this energy at Dimensionally Divine through the new Tesla’s Starhenge. ‘What does the Tesla’s Starhenge do?’ It provides an incredible experience of energy supporting you on all levels. This in turn can help you to remove the energy blockages that’s holding you back in many areas of your life. The beauty of the Tesla’s Starhenge is that it is non-invasive. It can be used to complement other forms of therapy, helping form a complete system of healing in its own right. The Tesla’s Starhenge seems to know what level to work with you on a physical, emotional or spiritual level. The aim of Tesla’s Starhenge is to isolate the factors preventing your

energy balance, prioritise them to assist with rebalancing you with the needed frequencies. You may find this helpful with balancing your energy and thought patterns that may be holding you back. When using the Tesla’s Starhenge there is no need for the input of a therapist or practitioner telling you what to do or how to work. This makes Tesla’s Starhenge very unique in the alternative healing world. For thousands of years the Chinese, Indians, Egyptians and many other cultures have talked about an energy system that exists within all of us. They also make references to a source of energy that exists external to us. These internal systems are often referred to as the Meridians, Chakras, Chi, etc… Today there is so much information to prove that we are made up of atoms and atoms are energy. The Tesla’s Starhenge works at a deep spiritual level by tapping into dimensions that are beyond the physical plane. You can find out how your energy

levels are throughout your body by having a Heart Quest reading. It measures your body’s energy levels before and after your time in the Tesla’s Starhenge. Dimensionally Divine has found five sessions over three weeks is the optimal time but not everyone can do this and that’s OK as remote sessions are possible as well. Dimensionally Divine also uses Young Living Essential Oils to enhance your experience in the Tesla’s Starhenge. Relax as you sit inside the Tesla’s Starhenge in a peaceful private garden located in Beerwah, Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Find out more online at dimensionallydivine.com or dimensionallydivine.com.au or on Facebook under Dimensionally Divine, or ring VICKI on 0409 488 742.

t seems just in the last few years Light Language and its use has been on the increase. So what is light language, why does it seem to be mentioned more frequently and how can it assist us today, in our ever-changing world? Light language is very simply frequency or energy and it can be written down or sounded, just as our own languages are. It can be expressed in sacred geometry or images, through art, song or even through sacred dance. It comes from many Galactic Nations, from the Angels, Archangels and the Beings of the highest dimensions. It allows us to connect with Source and our Higher Self without interference from our minds or the outside world. It awakens, activates, and stimulates, allowing us to remember who we are and where we have come from. It opens us up and allows energy or frequency to move through us, as packages of encodement healing frequency.

LANGUAGE of light?

For some people light language can hugely activate, opening chakras and their energy bodies; for others the energy can be quite gentle or subtle so you may not “feel” very much at all. Light Language even has the ability to reprogram our thoughts, emotions, to clear blockages, to activate our energy bodies and expand our being. Light Language is also the language of love and light from the Beings of the Galactic Nations. Just as there are many vernacular languages on the earth, so there are many light languages across all star systems. Each has a common thread that is able to be understood by all beings of the light. But each can be very different, in its use of sounds and frequency. Spoken Light language can be offered as blessings to another being or to the earth, it can be used to activate earth portals and vortexes, to open crystals and sacred sites, it can be used

to speak to the Ancient Guardians, the inner earth elementals, including the fairies, elves and the earth’s devas. Light Language can feel very familiar, that is because as Divine Beings of the light, we have known and used light language in other lifetimes and places. It is our way of communicating multidimensionally, with ourselves and others as it opens telepathic channels and creates a deep and loving connection with other light beings. Light language is becoming more familiar as we are moving through many cosmic doorways or gateways, it is here to assist us with our ascension. It is a very powerful catalyst for moving humanity forward on its spiritual evolution at this amazing time in our earth’s history. Light Language is truly an amazing gift to humanity. codesoftransition.com

was fortunate to pick up the phone a few weeks ago and have some time talking with Sharon Breslin who is an Interior Alignment Feng Shui Master Teacher and Practitioner, Intuitive Healer and Spiritual Tour guide. Sharon is an award-winning travel agent with over 30 years’ experience in the industry, owning and operating a franchise within the House of Travel Group. She has combined her executive experience, intuitive gifts and love of travel to create tours and mentoring services for the avid seeker. Sharon is currently based in Melbourne where she offers mentoring services specifically tailored to the individual’s requirements, whether it be for a start-up or established business or for personal life path questions. The rest of her time is spent creating

transformational journeys to countries like Bhutan, Egypt, Sedona and Peru. During our phone conversation we talked about her magical tours and upcoming Brisbane Feng Shui workshop and it was clear she had wisdom on many levels and in many areas. During our conversation she also very kindly commented, “looks like the magazine is going through a growth spurt and you could move in a lot of different directions. What do you really want to do next?” I shared with Sharon that part of the joy of creating the magazine was sharing my enthusiasm in meeting so many fascinating people who were doing interesting things in the areas of healing, creativity and business. So I thought about creating a new Melbourne feature in the magazine

each month and create pages for other locations as well. This would include exploring places I’ve never seen, meeting new people, creating reviews and writing mini interviews. I have reviewed some amazing modalities and businesses over the last seven years and at the same time to visit new places and paint a picture of the experience in this special feature, sang to my being! Sharon is an expert in mentoring and rather than telling you what to do, she inspires you to think about things in a new way and then take action. She has diverse experience in the spiritual and business worlds and has a great desire to empower other people to create a life of joy and adventure.

elbourne has this magical element which infiltrates your soul, an energy that gets into your awareness, tantalises all the senses and it offers surprises in delightful ways. It is like stepping into a floating soap bubble with every colour available. Wander through a mall between two main streets and you find a luxurious high tea cafĂŠ, a witchy-poo shop with all sorts of mysterious things, a vegan restaurant, a yoga school and a coffee shop that makes almond milk lattes. Melbourne is unique, and now offers so many ways for people to express their own unique individualised selves. I feel more at home now when I visit than when I lived there. The biggest surprise is the flourishing world of healing and spirituality that now proudly showcases itself from main streets and billboards. When I left Melbourne a couple of decades ago, the world of spirituality was hidden, like a secret society and those who stood up and claimed it was their journey were judged as left-of-centre, weirdos, hippies and a source of amusement.

MELBOURNE, PEOPLE AND PLACES

MELBOURNE

Melbourne holds a significant moment that changed my life. It was the birth place of my commitment to spiritual awakening. All it took was ten simple truth-filled words, “everything you need to know, you already have within you�, and my life took off in a direction that opened me to a world of healing, consciousness, meditation, energy medicine, seeking truth and remembering who I am. Now I return regularly to guide others on their own pathway to uniqueness of self. The opportunities to explore all these concepts in a bustling city was difficult. Melbourne at that time, was a city where careers, achievements and outcome-based living was paramount. What you ‘did’ for work was more important than discovering why you were doing it and the word ‘soul’ was describing a style of music! Fast forward two decades and now, when I visit for work, I see more healing centres, yoga schools, hear conversations about: being a better aspect of self, healing, bringing meditation into life, finding balance,

and even the number of raw and vegan cafes is astonishing. I am often asked if the needs of clients in Melbourne are different from others I work with? Not really. Weaving through Melbourne in to the rest of the world, is the yearning for simplicity, connection and the internal call for self-love and self-acceptance. We are all experiencing a shift in consciousness, our inner world, the unique self is calling to be seen, heard and lived. Each human has similar things to heal, we tend to label them differently. One thing that people will always talk about is Melbourne’s unpredictable weather. Take a moment, isn’t the journey of our lives unpredictable. If you know that Melbourne has four seasons in a day, you are prepared, if you know you can navigate your life with connected awareness, your journey is simple, and you are prepared. What if all you have to do each day is BE YOU, does that excite a calling within? raelenebyrne.com

Magnesium

N

– the life giving

obody likes feeling constantly anxious, and no-one likes not being able to experience a restful, deep sleep regularly. These are very common issues that many people suffer on a daily basis – both of which can be linked to one underlying factor, magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is currently dominating the health space and with good reason too. Magnesium is a truly wonderful mineral that is vitally important on so many levels for every individual. According to Dr Carolyn Dean, “Magnesium is to plant chlorophyll as iron is to haemoglobin. In our body, chlorophyll, with its gift of magnesium, supplies the means to create life-giving energy in our cells.” Pretty powerful statement, don’t you think? Dr Dean goes on to say that magnesium is a mineral that prevents and treats sleeplessness, anxiety, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines, osteoporosis and many other serious conditions. Sadly, there are many people, if not most, who are depleted in

magnesium and this can be attributed to environmental, diet and stress trends. The good news is that magnesium deficiency can be rectified, by taking magnesium supplements orally or by applying it to your body (transdermally). We need magnesium in fairly large quantities, so applying it to the body is a great way to help boost your levels and avoid side effects like diarrhoea, which affect some people when taking oral supplements. MiSMo has developed an innovative body gel, Magnesium Gel Forte, that is fortified with MSM (Organic Sulphur) which will assist with many health conditions including restless legs, cramps, pain from arthritis or joint pain, headaches, sore and achy muscles (from exercise) and sleeplessness just to list a few. MiSMo founder Irene McDonald said, “It was a real challenge for our formulating chemist, as we had two main outcomes we wanted to achieve with the Magnesium Gel. One, that it was a potent lotion that provided

Weight loss is science. Not diet gimmickry. Diets have a 5% success rate yet continue in popularity. Insanity? Learn how to take control of your own weight without another unsuccessful diet. Your body will love you for it!

ENERGY MINERAL effective pain relief. And two, creating a lotion that glided on the skin without leaving a sticky residue, which was MiSMo’s point of difference to other magnesium products on the market. We were able to achieve this and I am proud to say that the Magnesium Gel Forte is a unique and innovative magnesium body lotion that crosses the beauty threshold.” There are many types of magnesium in powder form including oxide, sulfate, citrate, lactate and chloride. MiSMo chooses to use magnesium chloride as it absorbs through the skin very easily bypassing the digestive system. Magnesium Gel Forte is designed as a body lotion while delivering health benefits. One teaspoon (5g) contains 1.2g of magnesium chloride, (an excellent boost for your body). MSM has strong anti-inflammatory benefits which is even a bigger help with pain control. Hyaluronic acid, organic aloe vera and rice bran oil provide hydration and moisturising properties. mismo.com.au

MOVE YOUR BODY

MOVEMENT

through

WORDS DR CARMEN ATKINSON

O

ur bodies thrive with movement. As adults when we think of moving our bodies it’s often considered monotonous and repetitive, some may even consider it boring and uninspiring. We may choose to ‘train’ our bodies to keep fit, improve strength and power, reduce blood pressure, lose weight, maintain muscle mass, prevent osteoporosis, or for stress relief, but ultimately do you enjoy it? We all understand the importance and benefits of moving our bodies both physically and mentally, but not everyone loves pounding the pavement, hitting the gym or sweating it out in a hot Bikram Yoga class. What if we found a way to move our body that we enjoyed? When was the last time you did something you used to do as a child, but haven’t done for decades? In general we are becoming more and more sedentary. We sit for hours on end at work, in traffic, on computers

play

and with our smart gadgets. We are also experiencing chronic levels of high stress – from meeting work deadlines, financial stressors, relationship challenges, family demands, social expectations and many are battling their own personal journeys of hardship. It’s easy to understand that amongst that, we may have forgotten the simple joy of PLAY. When was the last time you jumped on a trampoline, threw a Frisbee, ran barefoot in long grass, climbed a mountain, jumped with a skipping rope, played hopscotch or simply danced. When was the last time you learnt a new physical skill? Or started a new team sport just for fun? I was recently reminded of this when I relocated to the Sunshine Coast from Melbourne. I knew very few people and thought a great way to meet new friends was through sport, but I wanted it to be FUN. I wanted to reconnect with that part of myself that just loves to PLAY.

I wanted to move my body and have an outlet from the demands of work. So I took up Ultimate Beach Frisbee. Each Sunday I get to run barefoot on the sand, moving my body in new ways, learning new skills and with great people. As a chiropractor I see the disastrous toll a lack of movement can have on people. It can cause poor posture, chronic injuries and degenerative change, and may even accelerate ageing. I observe the impact of chronic physical and mental stress not only on spinal health but also on global health and wellbeing. Perhaps a great place to start is to simply PLAY. Find something you love to do, reconnect with your inner child, with people you love to do it with and move your body through the art of play. The benefits may surprise you. hendreychiropractic.com.au

o you feel a calling to a larger purpose in life? The infinite Rose is a metaphor for the struggles and triumphs of people the world over and through time. The Rose signals an alternative life. It brings recipients in touch with their unique life purpose. In this changing age many are searching for more meaning. This path is not just different – it is defiant. It is a Rose Revolution. Our digital world often neglects the inner life, indeed may be disparaging of it. The inner life illuminated by the sacred symbol of the Rose takes us on a passage through a gentle landscape that is not easy yet offers great rewards. All of us can feel the power of the Rose every day. As we do this a special link begins to change our lives for the better. As we commune with the Rose we may take the link further by learning Rose Alchemy, by receiving a Rose Reading, by reading a Rose Poem or by exploring the Rose Legends. Perhaps the gentle path of the Rose is for you. Should you decide to choose the Rose Adventure please contact CRIS HENDERSON, Rose Alchemist.

THE CRYSTAL WORDS RICHARD GILES

H

ave you had contact with one of the Crystal Skulls of renown? If so, you may have been impressed by the detailed carving that’s been done by someone, somewhere producing them from hard crystal. The specific hardness of quartz means that a lot of muscle, pressure, sweat and time would have gone into carving that piece with their mirror smooth finishes. Many skulls are either in private collections or in museums. A few are estimated to have been carved perhaps over 1000 years ago. We did not have the tools and technology to do the sorts of work that produced some of them as we have today. A skull that illustrates this is known as the Mitchell-Hedges skull, probably found in Belize in central America in 1923 at a Mayan excavation site in Lubaantun by the adventurer Mike Mitchell-Hedges and daughter Anna Mitchell-Hedges. It was said she located it first. You will find lots of scientific ‘proof’ that this skull and others mentioned here are not older than a few hundred years, but tests done on the

skulls OF

OLD

Mitchell-Hedges skull by Hewlett Packard crystal laboratories in California in the 1970s showed the technology needed to produce it had not yet been developed. The legend and prophecy are crosscultural legends shared by the Mayans, the Aztecs, Native Americans and other indigenous peoples regarding these skulls handed down from generation to generation. One legend is of the thirteen crystal skulls. Cherokee Medicine Man, Harley Swift-Deer Reagan once said: “These skulls were kept inside a pyramid in a formation of tremendous power known as the Ark. The Ark had twelve skulls kept in a circle with the largest and thirteenth skull placed in the centre. This skull represents the collective consciousness of all the worlds. At a pivotal time in humanity’s history, the 13 crystal skulls will be reunited again to awaken a new era – transforming the old into a new world.” In 2008 Bill Homman, current guardian of the Mitchell-Hedges Skull (Anna having passed), was on the Sunshine Coast for the Nexus Conference. I had the chance to be

with that skull several times. Once was at a Maleny talk and second, at a private meditation with the skull. Each experience with the skull was different. At the public talk, the skull session took me off into a galaxy with my vision hugely enlarged. The second time was an insight around the role of women and my partner Susie. A friend who shared that meditation said she saw the skull’s original guardians; Mayan women, who had hidden it back then, intending it to be found again this century.

for

WORDS TIM ROBERTS

I

t’s that time of year where sickness tends to strike, and it tends not to discriminate. As adults, we tend to grin and bear it, but it is difficult when we see our children suffering with acute ailments. As classical homoeopaths, we believe that a single remedy given at regular intervals can aid the recovery from acute ailments, however, at times it is difficult to find a homoeopath on call to help, so it is useful to have some knowledge on different remedies and how they can help us overcome acute illness. Below I have listed some remedies and how they can help, however, at this point please bear in mind that these are very rough guidelines only. Homoeopathic remedies are very powerful and over-use of these medicines can lead to aggravated symptoms. For this reason we thoroughly recommend seeking medical assistance to aid recovery. INFLUENZA – NB: If flu symptoms do not respond to the chosen remedy,

or if they are accompanied by high fever, skin rash, severe headache or sudden listlessness, seek professional help immediately. Bryonia: Characteristics – influenza which comes on slowly with severe aching of entire body. Patient is worse with at least jarring or motion and better by rest and pressure. Dryness of the skin with thirst for large quantities of cold water. Mentally irritable and doesn’t like to be disturbed. Wants to be left alone. Rhus Tox: Characteristics – fever, which comes on after being exposed to damp chilly weather or physical over-exertion. Lameness and stiffness with pain on beginning to move after prolonged rest. Better from continuous motion and tosses in bed for relief. Tongue may have a characteristic fiery red triangular tip. Gelsemium: Characteristics – influenza with overpowering weakness and trembling of the entire body. Entire muscular system feels heavy, tired and achy; can hardly lift head from below. Eyes are droopy. Drowsy, dull and listless; mentally exhausted even by

thinking of own complaints. Minimal thirst. COMMON COLD Aconite: Characteristics – The first stage of a cold or cough that comes on suddenly and violently. These colds and coughs come on after exposure to cold, dry wind or from fright. Hot watery nasal discharge; nostrils are hot and burning. The person may have anxiety and restlessness, intense burning and thirst for cold drinks. Allium Cepa: Characteristics – Profuse watery nasal discharge that drips like a tap. Nasal discharge burns and irritates the nose and lip. Eyes run, and the discharge is non-irritating. The person feels better outdoors. Pulsatilla: Characteristics – For a cold with thick, bland, yellow or green nasal discharge. Nose is blocked with loss of smell; the person feels better outdoors. Child is weeping, whiny, clingy and has to be carried. For more information and to make an appointment with TIM ROBERTS visit: myhealthnow.com.au

ADDICTIONS

WITH JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education

Millennium Children

F

iona is a 15-year-old girl who excels at softball and is requested to play in many teams within Australia as the key pitcher. She commenced her career when she was seven years old at a small softball club. She was addicted to playing so much, that she went to school three days a week, did not have to do homework so she could train, and all she could talk about was softball. She seemed really happy and successful. But there was something not quite right. You see her identity and ‘beauty’ was based on external aspects rather than holistic beauty. Fiona’s mum presented her for a

medical intuitive session as Fiona kept having back pain near her kidneys and her elbow kept swelling. She also had typical softball injuries such as muscle tension and tightness near her shoulder from throwing and tight calf muscles from her pitching. The doctors could not explain what was happening to the body and were not able to assist her. Emotionally Fiona was addicted to the attention and popularity and limelight of being the key player. This was her external beauty. When she commenced softball she hated it and was pushed by her Mum to play. Every game would have Fiona crying and complaining of back pain. Mum would constantly push Fiona to play. Fiona’s back was expressing she did not feel ‘backed up, supported’ with having to play softball. But when she heard her Mum say she was proud of her being the best player, Fiona felt obligated to play and learnt from age seven years to be addicted to the praise and glory and that is how ‘mummy loves you’. She did not understand the concept of holistic beauty.

Back to the body and Fiona’s kidneys were saying ‘paranoia and fear’ and that was linked to the idea that if she was not noticed, she was a no one. She is so addicted to the attention that she craves it all the time and will obsess to get it by playing softball all the time. Emotionally her elbow was saying ‘show you are strong but you are feeling weak’. Her body was communicating she needed to recover from this addiction of ‘fame and glory as signs of being loveable and beautiful’. Fiona was given easy life strategies to learn that she could be loved and beautiful in all sorts of ways. Addictions are emotionally based which cause a chemical reaction and will effect and affect the beauty of someone internally and externally. To empower children allow them to communicate with you and if having difficulties search for someone to support you and the child.

any children have crooked teeth. Is it just a teeth problem you may ask? Is it just a cosmetic problem you may wonder? If you have been following me on Facebook (Wattle Street Dental) and watched my tips on how to straighten teeth and be healthy, you probably already know the answer. When children grow crooked teeth, it’s because their cranium hasn’t developed properly. The jaw bone didn’t grow wide enough for all the teeth to fit. If you remove those healthy teeth to straighten teeth, you might have straight teeth, but the jaw never grows to its full epigenetic potential. It can also come with many health problems like: poor performance at school, headaches, back pain, poor immune system, poor posture, high risk for sleep apnoea, anxiety, depression, cardio vascular disease, cancer, diabetes in the future.

If we start early with facial growth guidance or orthotropics, many of the health problems can be prevented. The good thing about growing kids is they are growing. So if we can give them some help to guide the jaw growth in the right direction, they might not need to take out perfectly healthy teeth and have braces for years, or surgeries to reset the jaws. The age we are talking about is 6-9 years old. When children have lost all their baby teeth, they are around 12-13 years of age. Their jaw development is very limited after that. That’s why many children need to have teeth removed to have braces. Many studies have shown that the way the face grows can be affected by postural changes – for example: by holding the mouth open to breathe, having an incorrect sleep posture, or an abnormal swallow pattern. As the face can change for the worse with improper

braces?

posture, orthotropic treatment is an early prevention, interceptive, nonextraction, and non-surgical orthodontic treatment dealing with correct growth of the face and jaws. It is an alternative holistic approach to improve health, straighten teeth and achieve facial beauty. There are many reasons for the mouth posture to have been altered from the ideal, and it can often happen very early on in life. Breastfeeding, diet, nutrition, allergies, tongue tie and sleep posture are all factors that can influence oral posture. Good news is we can use many different tools (biobloc, myobrace, myofunctional exercise, mini-braces) to help children to catch up to their normal growth and minimise the deviation from the normal growth.

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

Joy tips for animals and owners WORDS DR ELAINE CEBULIAK

I

’ve thought about why and how some businesses seem to thrive while others struggle. It seems to me that it is about energy. I came up with this equation: Energy = Joy + enthusiasm + activity If there is much joy doing what you do, you are bound to be “successful” – whatever that term implies; and since we all seek joy and happiness, this is good enough for me. We should take note of how our pets thrive and express themselves. Dogs show us what success is – they smile and show their enthusiasm in multiple ways. Increasing their range of motion (ROM) and therefore ease of movement will add to their energy and activity levels. This is why we teach an animal massage course once or twice a year to clients, vet students, veterinarians, breeders and pet owners in general. My patients have taught me how to smile and wiggle my tail; that is if I had one. We get a big kick out of watching them improve in mobility, especially with the rehabilitation side of our practice.

medicine intervenes with patients that are carried in paralysed and walk out after one session. Acupuncture, essential oils, remedial massage, laser, herbal remedies, diet changes, orthomolecular supplements and homoeopathy are often more powerful and longer lasting than the NSAID (aspirin type) drugs. Energy balancing and structural work boosts all of our joy, both patients, owners and staff reverberate in a life of increased movement. Watching our patients improve is helped immensely by owners participating in their rehabilitation. Some simple measures for dogs to

Animal health is related to the consciousness of the animal owner

Acacia Animal Care Holistic Veterinary Medicine Australia

In fact approximately 80% of animal illness is related to the consciousness of the owner. ALL illnesses are due to levels of consciousness below the 200 level Arthritis: Fear Level 100 Allergies: Grief Level 75 Cancer: Grief Level 75 Parasites: Guilt Level 30 Fractal acupuncture, sound files and the TC device can change levels of consciousness. To experience these changes of consciousness –

employ therapeutic exercises include the following: • HILL WORK – have your dog walk up an inclined surface to strengthen the hind limbs, especially quadriceps, semitendinosus, gluteus maximus extension. Walk down the hill for increasing the triceps, and flexion of the stifles, hock and hip. • SIT TO STANDS – using a liver treat (very small taste!) make your dog sit then stand (“come”) and walk one step towards you then sit again repeatedly to strengthen the quads and hamstrings. • CAVALETTIS – these are long sticks such as bamboo poles, elevated by placing them on both sides off the ground e.g. on a compressed empty soft drink can. Place them about two dog lengths apart (so this depends on the size of your dog) and use about 6-8 poles and walk your dog over them. This has multiple benefits, such as promoting extension and flexion of most joints, helping weight shift and conscious proprioception. • WOBBLE BOARDS – an upturned old fashioned garbage can lid with a flat board and non-slip two dollar mat on

top works well for this. Place the dog on the centre and then offer small amounts of meaty treats to the left and then right – this is a bit like the core strengthening exercises found performing while rowing on a stand-up paddle board. Of course you could take your dog SUPing too! (my Border Collie loves this). • WEAVING – place cones or chairs in a regular pattern and get your dog to walk around and alternate through these. This improves lexion of the spine and increases trunk stability with weight shifting. Sort of like doggy yoga. • TREADMILLS AND WALKING THROUGH WATER – underwater treadmills are great but not many people

e

have access to one. You can give your dog the same benefits by walking them in knee deep water at the beach and by taking them swimming. If you have a thick coated dog, be sure to make them extra buoyant by providing them with a flotation jacket. These come with a handle on the top so you can help get them in and out of water. • SHAKE IT OFF – by placing a hair scrunchy (not too tightly) on one distal limb, the dog will balance on the other three limbs in a different fashion. Take them for a walk and change the limbs the band is on every few minutes. This brings proprioception awareness to the brain. • GENTLE PRESSURE TOUCHES – by pressing gently on the abdomen you can remind your dog that core strength can be improved. Be sure to use lots of praise, pats and healthy reward treats to make these rehab lessons joyful. Dogs are our best friends. I mean really whose husband or wife ever greet them with such joyful enthusiasm – like they haven’t seen them for years, simply if they leave the room for a few minutes?

The connection we have with most of our four-legged friends gives us, and them, the energy to keep going even in tough times. Have a look at some of our friends with pets in the park charity. www.petsinthepark.org.au/mobile/ Giving back to these type of charities will increase your joy and hence your energy. Don’t forget to hug your pet, and maybe your vet too ;-) animalwellness.com.au
