Bartercard - a world of business opportunities Regardless of what country, culture of currency, money makes the world go round, but today it’s not just cash fuelling commerce world-wide. In 2016 Bartercard is celebrating 25 years of trading, and the Gold Coast-born company has grown to operate the world’s largest trade exchange achieving $4.4 billion in cash savings for Australian businesses, equating to 21.9 million currency alternative transactions. Bartercard Australia CEO Clive van Deventer said although Bartercard has expanded into a multi-million dollar industry which stacks up approximately $600 million in transactions each year across eight countries, its vision remains unchanged. “Barter has evolved and come a long way from the days of swapping a cow for a goat, but the basic principle of assisting small businesses to attract customers, conserve cash and increase profits in almost every industry has stayed the same,” he said. “Our vision is to make businesses successful by being the leading global business marketplace where members connect and barter.” Van Deventer said that Bartercard is a tool to supplement the cash market, filling downtime, idle capacity and selling slow-moving stock as an additional sales and marketing distributuion channel, but has turned into a viable economic alternative. “Last year businesses saved over $130 million in cash through the indirect exchange of products and services,” he said. “Today’s modern approach to barter steps away from a direct swap and instead uses trade dollars, recognised by the ATO as the equivalent to a dollar, transacted in a closed business network.”

Back to basics Bartercard works actively with Australian businesses to facilitate cashless transactions and above all, the system is about going back to basics. “Bartercard started in 1991 when Australia was experiencing one of the worst recessions in history and businesses were looking for solutions to cash shortages,” said Clive. “It was created out of the idea that going back to basics and using a closed group of businesses to conduct cashless transactions would rebuild small to medium-sized businesses in Australia.” Van Deventer added that despite starting up in adversity, the company found a gap in the market to launch just at the right time. “Twenty-five years down the track we’ve grown into a global brand under which thousands of members continue to remedy setbacks for SMEs, including competition from large enterprises, through technology platforms that support their vision.”

Saving $200,000 in business Mornington Peninsula-based business owner and Bartercard member Suzanne Johnson has saved $200,000 in her hair and beauty salon, Peaches & Cream, by earning the currency alternative and using it to make business purchases in place of cash. This included a $40,000 saving on a recent salon relocation. Suzanne said she used Bartercard to offset the cash cost of the architectural plans, installing new fitout, painting, flooring, new signage, plumbing, advertising and more, all paid using trade dollars instead of cash. “Conserving $200,000 in cash has let me invest in new services like laser tattoo removal to stay competitive in the market,” she said. “There’s nowhere else in business where you have the ability to offset cash flow like you can with Bartercard.” Van Deventer said the biggest areas where members trade are advertising, core business products and services, lifestyle, and real estate, albeit the exchange has businesses across almost every industry. He also added that Bartercard takes a holistic approach to business and lifestyle. “We believe that every business owner should enjoy the fruits of their labour whilst not impacting the business or the family cash budget,” said Clive. “Business owners use their Bartercard trade dollars to pay for accommodation, take their families on holidays, renovate their homes and pay for a range of other lifestyle expenses.” “What started off as a small group of businesses trading has turned into a collaborative economy of scale which supplements approximately 24,000 businesses in eight countries.” He added that twenty-five years down the track, Bartercard has come a long way evolving with the technology and the times, but its goal of growing businesses remains the same. “We’ll continue to stick with our members through thick and thin to drive business through trading.”

Spirit/energy in business FEATURE

e have some great articles this month on spirit/energy in business and many variations on this theme! When I first started the magazine just over seven years ago many people used to say to me that spirit in business is an oxymoron. Over the last few years, things have changed and ‘lightened’ up, and ‘consciousness’ is simplifying and becoming more practical. Even science is substantiating what the ancient mystics knew and mythology revealed all those centuries ago.

it just a ‘hip’ thing to do? Who is after real and lasting change? When we look at some of the environmental issues facing our planet, I don’t think we really have time to be complacent anymore, it’s time to express who we are, live it, be it and facilitate others if they are choosing to do the same. We are fortunate to have so many people contributing to this magazine whom are doing just that in their own way and we are in the process of reaching more people each month in more far and wide places. Even if spirit and energy in business doesn’t resonate with you, I’m wondering if this edition can assist you with creating more of a ‘spirited business and life’… On the cover this month: Was lovely to have some time with inspiring Raelene Byrne recently and great to express her current insights on page 12-13. Travelling with gratitude! J

I have been contacted by many more corporate and business people than ever before and the world seems to be continuing to go through some big shifts. Maybe the gap between the ‘alternative’ world and the mainstream business world is closing? As Huffington Post said late last year, “consciousness is the new black”. This is exciting and at the same time, is consciousness the next fad for some? Or is

hen one is allergic to sugar, one craves it. We all know how sugar can take over our lives if it is not kept in check. There has been many things written about sugar and how it is like a poison to our body. That was what it was like for Mae. Mae came to see me with terrible sinus pressure and a sinus infection. Under her current problems she had listed chronic hay fever, fatigue, salicylate intolerance and sugar addiction. On testing, I found her to be highly allergic to sugar. And that was her priority treatment along with sinus and lymph glands. So on the first visit we did a combination of Sugar + Sinus + Lymph. As Mae sat up, immediately the pressure started releasing from her sinuses. She couldn’t believe how quickly it had started working. These are Energy Balancing Techniques

sugar?

based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. She needed no antibiotics or supplements. When she came back one week later her sinus infection had cleared and the remarkable thing was she had decreased the desire for sugar. She had only had sugar twice that week! She no longer craved it. Of course there was more work to be done. Mae went on to clear all her allergies as she wanted to get her health back on track. She had a total of 28 treatments, out of which eight were severe allergies. After about the fifth treatment her energy returned and she started exercising again. On her 12th treatment she cleared her salicylate allergy. These results are typical – when we find imbalances in the body and treat them, your body heals itself. janetredrea.weebly.com

immune busters

WORDS SARAH KOTTMANN

W

inter is that time of year when illness seems to be inevitable, however by using some techniques to boost the immune system and fight infection you can have better recovery and hopefully less illness. Young children are at greater risk as their immune system isn’t fully developed until the age of six. This is why children below the age of six tend to develop more colds, ear infections and chest infections, so helping support the immune system is even more important in this age group. A large part of the immune system; almost 80% in fact, is found in the digestive system. When an imbalance occurs in the digestive system due to: food intolerances, use of medication such as antibiotics, stress and nutritional deficiencies, it affects your immune system making it more easily affected by pathogens. Keeping the gut healthy is one of the most important aspects of having a healthy immune system. Depending on what is going on with the digestive system it is important to use the right method of keeping it healthy;

this could include eliminating food intolerances to reduce inflammation, including probiotics and prebiotics in your daily routine. Healing the gut may also involve things like aloe and glutamine. VITAMIN D Studies have shown a link between low Vitamin D levels and being prone to getting respiratory infections. Most Australians have a Vitamin D deficiency, which is why especially for children giving natural Vitamin D from cod liver oil can be very beneficial for maintaining immune system health and fighting infection. VITAMIN C With thousands of studies spanning many years, Vitamin C is an old favourite and still very beneficial in fighting infection and improving immune health. When you are stressed and have infection, supplementing with Vitamin C can be very beneficial. ZINC With a similar history as Vitamin C and used well in combination with Vitamin C, zinc can be very beneficial

in fighting infection and improving immune health. A deficiency in zinc can cause immune system dysfunction. ECHINACEA Echinacea is a herb that has been around for many years as an immune system builder and infection fighter, it works best as a liquid extract. HOMOEOPATHY Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been around for over 200 years and there are a group of remedies used often in acute circumstances such as respiratory infection and colds. ESSENTIAL OILS Certain essential oils can be very helpful in fighting infection. Always read instructions and ask a professional for contraindications. Essential oil with eucalyptus and peppermint can also be used in diffusers to help clear the air of bacteria. Always consult your health care professional. natureshappiness.com.au myhomeopathiclife.com

HOW TO STAY

healthy

WHILE

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

TRAVELLING

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

W

hen travelling abroad, the last thing you expect is to get sick. But when you’re out of your usual surroundings, things can sometimes go wrong despite your best intentions. Here’s a few tips to keep your health in top shape when travelling. BEFORE YOU TRAVEL It’s important to build your immune system prior to travel so that you don’t spend your entire holiday sick in bed. Your immune system is your first defence against all the foreign germs and bugs, and strong immunity can’t be built overnight. In the weeks leading up to your getaway, it’s imperative to stay well hydrated, eat a healthy high-fibre wholefoods diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise, take a multi-strain probiotic and minimise stress. And don’t be too quick to grab antibiotics if you feel unwell – they wipe out a heap of your good gut bacteria and your immune system can suffer. A pre-holiday colonic is always a great idea to flush out any disease-causing

toxins so you can start your travels as healthy as possible! DURING YOUR FLIGHT I always take my own food and an empty stainless steel drink bottle with me when flying. Instead of eating the rubbish they serve on the plane, I get to enjoy a fresh quinoa salad with plenty of leafy greens – just steer clear from things like onion, garlic and legumes that can often cause bloating which is exacerbated sky-high. Ask for your water bottle to be filled up, then add a drop or two of peppermint oil to ease your digestion. WHEN YOU ARRIVE Jetlag isn’t the only thing that wreaks havoc on your health – you really want to start detoxing from the radiation from your flight as quickly as possible. Be sure to take some chlorella tablets with you every day for the next week to protect against harmful radiation. You can also seek out a far-infrared sauna to sweat out a whole heap of toxins from your flight. Additionally, soak in an Epsom salt bath when you reach your hotel room.

Different cuisines and food preparation standards overseas are known to given many of us what’s affectionately known as ‘Bali belly’ – essentially a grumbling belly and an urgency to go to the toilet! The best way to avoid this is to stick to busy food outlets, only drink bottled water, and when in doubt, eating the vegetarian option is invariably safer when it comes to food hygiene. UPON YOUR RETURN It’s recommended to get back into your old routine as quickly as possible when you arrive home, so that your body can go back to functioning at its optimum level. Resist the temptation to eat convenience food, you’re better off nourishing your body with some seasonal organic produce to help your body reacclimatise. It’s also a great idea to pop in for another colonic to rid your body of any holiday over-indulgences or gastrointestinal bugs you may have picked up. sunshinecolonics.com.au

his is the drink for bones and joints. Golden Milk is perfect for anyone who has pain, arthritis, joint pain and for those who do a lot of exercise. It’s perfect for yogis, sports people pregnant ladies, elderly people who have pain and children going through growth spurts. This a beautiful recovery drink when you have a low appetite and need some good bone food. Also just to add another benefit of Golden Milk, it’s perfect on hot summer days, and cold winter days when there is either joint pain, inflammation or a feeling of too much fluid in the body. This is Magical Food as Medicine. It’s made with fresh turmeric root and works well for you when you want a natural and nutritious anti-inflammatory drink. I have added some ginger root into this recipe. But, do as you want. We also added almond milk to this recipe, however you can use cows’, rice, oat or goats’ as you prefer. You can also use dried root instead of fresh. I always use one-third dry to what I would use fresh in weight. So, you will need to experiment with quantities yourself and add more or less of any of the herbs, salt and honey to your taste. Remember the stronger it is with the herbs the more medicinal it becomes.

GOLDEN MILK

This recipe makes about 1.2 litres and you can drink it warm or pop in fridge for a cool summer treat. Ingredients: 2 big knobs of turmeric root and ginger root 1 pinch sea salt 1 big blob honey (to taste) 1 litre almond milk 3 litres water Method: 1. Cut the turmeric and ginger into small pieces. 2. Add the turmeric root, ginger, salt, water and honey into a saucepan and pop on the stove top and bring to the boil. Let it reduce the liquid by half so that you end up with 1.5 litres of very yellow herby liquid. 3. Now, pour in the almond milk and stir well. Let it get really hot, but not boil. Then strain the liquid away from the herbs, then serve. medicineroom.net

other, grandmother, wife, friend, international energy healer, speaker, writer, spiritual mentor, retreat facilitator… these are just a few ways to describe who Raelene Byrne is in the world. But spend even ten minutes with her and you will discover she doesn’t let titles define or limit her. With a determined benevolentwarrior spirit, she shows up as herself each and every time and inspires other souls to do the same.

12

12.indd 1

Raelene’s words of truth in the verbal and written form are shared with such ease and grace as it’s not from a place of knowledge, it’s from a deeper wisdom. When we recently connected, I discovered new things about her and once again was reminded: when we move out of the head and into the heart, life flows and there is an authenticity with living. Raelene is one of those amazing beings who has always followed her heart even if it meant being seen as ‘different’. She was encouraged to

attend University from a young age and even though she was accepted into a tertiary course, she decided to travel the world and experience life after leaving school. This was the start of her spiritual adventure, she went against the ‘cultural grain’ and family expectations and followed her own knowing. Maybe this is partly why highly intellectual people, corporates and mainstream business people seek her out and want to ‘have what she’s having’. Perhaps they wish to be free and experience the richness of their own inner world, taking off all the ‘suits and ties of restriction’. Raelene said, “I don’t care what people do, what their job or identity is, I am far more stimulated and interested in their soul journey and guiding those who are ready to connect with that. I feel that is one of the reasons I can stand in front of corporate beings, new agers, and everyone in between, as it isn’t about the identities, it is about what is beneath and I direct what I do towards that…” Raelene has a gift for being able to talk to a wide range of people (particularly in the business world) about all things spiritual. She has developed a ‘language’ where they can receive her and her facilitation and she makes it practical, straight forward and simple. I asked her how she manages to speak at business events and know what each audience can hear? She said, “all I do is trust myself and my intuition all the time”. Raelene is a great catalyst and inspiration for what’s possible. She said it’s not about trying to get people to change or fix them. She creates a space through which people can choose to let go, and know who they are on a soul level which is transformational. And she said our planet is going through rapid change, we have actually gone beyond ‘thinking about having a leap of faith’ to just jumping NOW and trusting! It’s time! She explained, we are moving from the 3rd dimension which was very masculine, head-based and judgemental and moving into the 5th dimension, where we are guided by our hearts; we speak the language of energy and it’s all about wisdom. We are literally lightening up, even our houses now seem to be made with more glass and receive more natural light; it’s a reflection of what is happening in the collective consciousness. Raelene believes it’s easy enough to

get in touch with our truths but we also need to ask what we are hiding from ourselves. She said it’s not about telling people to love themselves more or saying lots of affirmations. She feels it’s more about making a declaration of what we are going to set out to do and commit to it and take action. The Universe then conspires with us. One of the gifts from interviewing Raelene, reflected back to me, was really stepping into full trust of myself more than ever before. This came about not from her directly speaking to me about this but from being in her presence and writing this story. It’s time for us to explore our full potential and then I wonder what we can facilitate in the world from this space? WHAT THINGS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD OF BUSINESS ABOUT SPIRIT/ENERGY? You are spirit, you are energy, just as everything around you is. Being in denial or resistance to a greater intelligence that we are connected to doesn’t make it go away, it just makes the lessons of awakening louder and sometimes more uncomfortable. And they do arrive in life whether in physicality, emotionally, or mentally. Get to know who YOU are. Spirituality or the world of spirit is not isolated from anything else, it exists within and around each of us. Perhaps see spirituality as the journey to know who you are. Be responsible for your decisions, actions, thoughts, words… let the blame go, it is so ‘old world’. When you step into self-responsibility, you find the creative energy for your life amplifies. Have awareness of your ‘fears’ or lack… see it as resistance, then you will know what the next step is. Know and be true to your values, principles, be ready to evolve as you discover more about you and life. Place some energy towards your contribution to the planet, to your own legacy. Engage in mindfulness, or meditation every day, it will reduce stress, help with sleep, energy and focus, and will allow you to be with you… this is the start of your self-knowledge adventure. Be honest with yourself… some days ask these questions and see how your spirit, and body respond: Does your lifestyle fill you? Do you go to work with a sense of dread or a sense of excitement? What is your true ideal vision of your life? ALWAYS listen to your gut feeling. If something feels off, it IS, if something feels right it is. Never doubt your

own inner GPS system, it is your best navigation in life. That inner feeling, inner voice, is your higher-self talking to you, it’s a moment of connecting to something that is intangible but definitely real. WHAT THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH SEEKERS ABOUT BUSINESS? Remember you started a journey to offer your services from an intention, a desire from your heart… keep that alive as this is a huge reference point. When things become chaotic, you can go back to that, feel it, reignite the passion, then clear all the unnecessary things that creep in. Seek help when you need to. The business world is a mine field of technical things, rules and regulations. Being in denial of the ‘structures’ doesn’t keep you safe, it becomes messy, unorganised and in the effort to stay ‘separate from the business side of things’, you will tend to play small, keep yourself held back and stop growing. If you believe in what you are creating, then BE LIVING IT. Value yourself and all that you are and all that you are creating. You will never get the external validation to fill any lack you have going on. Remember your point of difference is YOU, that “YOUNIQUE” essence that is not found anywhere else and how you deliver that to this life. This in itself is the biggest asset for any business you will run. Ask for help with things you are uncertain of, and if possible, get others who LOVE the stuff you don’t, to do it for you. If

ENGAGE IN MINDFULNESS, OR MEDITATION EVERY DAY, IT WILL REDUCE STRESS, HELP WITH SLEEP, ENERGY AND FOCUS, AND WILL ALLOW YOU TO BE WITH YOU… THIS IS THE START OF YOUR SELFKNOWLEDGE ADVENTURE.

you do seek assistance, find someone who can understand you. Your unique offering no matter what, is not so much about what you are doing, but more about your energy and how that affects others. Abundance is a dance of giving and receiving. Offering your services in exchange for money is what this world is about. Being spiritual or seeking that way of living is great, but you still have to pay bills, feed yourself, and exist in a world that is all about energy exchanges. If you think, ‘I can’t charge for what I do, as it is a gift’, then get over it… FAST! Or you will end up resentful and depleted. Everybody has gifts and skills and to be able to do what you love and create a life you want from that, then you will have to find ways to make it a business that aligns with your values, principles and visions. HOW CAN WE BRING THE TWO WORLDS TOGETHER? The bridge between worlds is being built right now, more corporate people are softening towards meditation, mindfulness practices, and asking questions, due to stress. Stress is the disease of a busy world, and it is the key to change priorities, lifestyles and ways of being. On the other hand, more of the spiritual seekers with businesses are having to become more aligned with the world of commerce and technical leaps, in order to be heard on a larger scale and to reach those in the business world. The New Age, or KNEW AGE as I call it, is nothing new and has as many resistances, restrictions and judgements as the business corporate world. When each of us individually can find the place of acceptance and peace within, this will add to the collective consciousness. When what you do in life depletes you, when you are not filling your own cup, life falls apart; the only place to start is with the self. If we can drop the labels, ‘alternative’, ‘mainstream’, ‘spiritual’, ‘corporate’, and create new understandings of wellness through being whole. When we look at a road map we see many roads into a city, some are direct, some are scenic. Maybe that is a way of addressing business and spirituality in life. Some people want a direct fast track way, others are happy to take the scenery; to enjoy the journey. Doesn’t mean one is right or wrong, the destination is the same. raelenebyrne.com Holistic Bliss | JULY 2016 |

SPIRIT/ENERGY IN BUSINESS

BUSINESS IS

energy

WORDS JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education

A

ny business is a powerful tool for change. Express your truth and you cannot fail in business. It is about creating value for others. And businesses are about being of service to others. Sales in the business is connecting on a heart level to people to give them what they want. I worked in nursing, pathology and autopsies and then went in to business. I loved the metaphysical world and the results from Medical Intuition. It filled my heart so much, I knew I wanted to share this with everyone. But there were important factors with the energy of business and I want to share tips I use to receive the brilliant results with my courses and sessions: 1. Prepare yourself before going to work. This could consist of visualising your day, exercising or even deep breathing. It is important to be mentally, physically and emotionally ready. 2. Learning is critical to your end result for anything in life. It is important to up-skill and learn more so that you keep your energy moving forward and fluid. New ideas will come and you

THE

MAKING LOVE RETREAT

will be in touch with the creator part of yourself. 3. Inspirational people focus on POSSIBILITIES and SOLUTIONS – Stuck people focus on PEOPLE and PROBLEMS. 4. Whatever you focus on, you will attract (law of attraction). So if you are focusing on insight and the empowerment of yourself and others, the results can only be success. Then action these. 5. Focus on possibilities, your dreams, and results, as they are your key indicators of how well you are doing. 6. Be willing to do what people are not willing to do. 7. Get up early and look at your goals each morning. 8. Business is about relationships so connect with people on a heart level. 9. Be inspired by change NOT threatened by change. 10. Sometimes growth can be messy and uncomfortable. But know after the confusion comes clarity just like after an ascension.

11. In a healing business you are using your talent, not having a job. 12. Work is an opportunity to develop your talents and use your full expression. 13. The purpose of business is to change the world and make a difference in someone’s life. 14. Having a list of things brings motivation, confidence, and release of energy to do more. 15. Be obsessed with GIVING and GRATITUDE. 16. Ask yourself ‘Who can I help?’ Not what can I get. 17. Business is about producing unusual value for as many people as possible. Have fun and know that what you give you will receive. For Medical Intuitive courses or to learn about empowering your child contact JEAN SHEEHAN AbsoluteEmpowerment.com

SPIRIT/ENERGY IN BUSINESS

business

It’s called a because it WORDS SARAH YIP

A

s an ex-fundraiser, I know that raising money is all about your vibration. Now that I’m a psychic, people think they come for a numerology reading, but that’s just how Spirit gets them in the door. What they’re really looking for, is a reminder that anything is possible. They’re seeking someone with ‘Higher Self’-confidence and integrity. A long time ago, I realised that I’d never sell my intuition for all the wealth in the world. That would be like trading an eternal pack of Tim Tams for a halfeaten donut. When you have infinite trust in the Universe, no one can sway you. People sense this strength, and will turn up in droves, if you use it wisely. As I explain to my students, being psychic is not the same as being spiritually mature. The former is a skill you can re-learn, whereas the latter comes from life experience, character, and practising compassion.

KEEPS YOU BUSY!

You have incarnated with a specific lifepath, or spiritual job description, revealed by your date of birth (see my website). This shows which chakra/s you’re healing this time around. Running a business isn’t for everyone – it can be hectic, hence the term ‘busy-ness’. It requires you to say ‘no’ a lot, whether that’s to marketers, or clients wanting to call at 2am. You need a strong Solar Plexus (gut) chakra to stay focused. This centre thrives when you exercise your power physically (through core strength work and a good diet), and metaphysically (by being careful who you believe). After all, to be in the top 1% of any industry, you need to do what 99% of others won’t. As confronting as it’s been, I’ve increased my prices many times, in order to create the space to recover from Orthorexia and to fall pregnant. Luckily, it’s always worked out. This is a kind Universe. A wish from your heart is 60x more

powerful than a wish from your head. No matter what business you’re in, make sure you love it, otherwise you’ll keep attracting conflicted clients. If I can go from being a total sceptic and scientist, to a spiritual coach, then so can you. I love working with people who see 11:11, 111, 333 and other number sequences, because they’re often about to make major changes within 5 to 10 years. Nothing’s more exciting than supporting others to take a leap of faith. 11:11 is all about collaboration for group evolution. It even looks like people standing up for, and with, each other. As in Pacman, if you don’t eat your fears for breakfast, they will devour you for dinner. If you want a high vibration business and lifestyle, keep asking yourself ‘what fear will I conquer today?” sarahyip.com

Love AND light AT

WORDS LYNETTE KING

M

any years ago after attending a personal development course called Insight Seminars in Sydney, I made up my mind that one day I was going to give back some of what Insight had given to me. You see, I was going through some of the most difficult times in my life and I was searching for a better way to deal with it. Through a lady that I barely knew from Facebook, I found Insight Seminars and attended Insight 1, The Awakening Heart Seminar. This profoundly changed my direction and me as a person. I went on to attend two more Insight Seminars and I look back now at the person that I was and she is barely recognisable. This profound change in me, has been the catalyst to realising my vision. I attended a small group of talks at a coffee shop in Caloundra every Thursday evening and was inspired to

INSIGHT NIGHTS

keep the group running once the owner had sold and moved to Bali. This was the opportunity I needed to fulfil my vision to bring Insight to the Sunshine Coast. Insight Seminars’ philosophy is to change the world one person at a time through loving. This is also the vision that I decided to adopt when I began Insight Nights in Caloundra. I have a dream and desire to own an internationally recognised Insight building with accommodation, a vegan cafe and a centre for holistic practitioners in Caloundra. Currently we hold weekly meetings on health and wellness for anyone looking to improve their life. Over the past six months we have had a variety of awesome guest speakers covering many topics from Past Life Regression Therapy to the environment. The talks are designed to be as interactive as

possible so we all leave feeling fantastic. Recently we had a Kundalini yoga presentation where we learnt the history of yoga and practised techniques to lessen stress. As we evolve the experiences and speakers continue to get better and better. Coming up in the near future we are excited to welcome vegan cooking classes, chakra spiritual dance, an animal whisperer and sacred drumming as just some of the many activities. We currently have a beautiful unique group of regulars that attend Insight Nights and we welcome with open arms newcomers looking to enjoy and benefit from these talks. Insight Nights is held every Thursday evening at 6pm at the CCSA Hall in Nutley Street, Caloundra, opposite The Events Centre. We are a non-profit organisation and it’s a $5 entry fee.

THE

feminine force

WORDS JANET McGEEVER

I

t was 6.30am mid-week of teaching The Making Love Retreat. I leaned forward to pick something up and my body fell to the floor, unable to move my legs. I remained there still, horrified at what just happened. I dragged myself, ambush style, a few metres and called out to my partner for help. He pulled me up onto the bed and we got cold and hot packs. I lay there looking at the ceiling wondering if I’d broken my back or if this is just acute back pain. And… by the way, how am I going to teach today? I got a sudden lightning bolt of appreciation for my body and how it normally functions without my conscious thought. My mind worked out that I would probably have been screaming in pain if I’d broken my back. It became clear I had just put my back out and somehow, I walked half bent over, with assistance out of the house, to the car and to the venue. I taught the rest of the week in

this state. Life was imitating art, as I learnt a deep and powerful lesson, the lesson of conservation. One of the premises of our teaching is conserving sexual energy, to allow it to naturally recycle through the body, without force, excitement or stimulation. Humbly, I realised that my default in business was to force beyond my physical capability, feed off the excitement and get over-stimulated, thus draining my energy and body to the point of exhaustion at times. I had to DO EVERYTHING MYSELF, overextend, and make it all so perfect. This time, I had to surrender to assistance, to conserve my energy, and just receive. Strangely, there was something so relaxing about it. Just how lovemaking can be without forcing an agenda. I started to see how much emotional, mental and physical energy is expended needlessly, how much is

‘going out’ without much ‘going in’. I began to understand why my energy was drained a lot, and why many women get caught in this trap. Our deepest feminine gifts of intuition, sensitivity, compassion and creativity become blocked if we do not contain our life force more, replenish when needed and deeply listen to the body and its messages. Conserving our precious energy through not only mindful practices, but through consideration of every action and choice we make, as to whether it will energise or drain us, is true empowerment for women. Then we can become a powerful feminine force of nature in business. So where are you over-extending? Where might you be able to conserve, contain and regenerate so that there is more life force for you, your business, and your life? makingloveretreat.com.au

CONNECT with the

spirit

of your business

WORDS ANNE ALECKSON

W

hat do you do with those first few minutes on entering your office in the morning? Do you check your email and messages and settle in to respond to overnight enquiries? Perhaps you head straight to the kitchen to put the kettle on and catch up with other staff members over the latest television goings on. There are things to do; some even left on the ‘to do’ list from yesterday or last week and not a moment to lose in getting busy. If this is how you start your workday you are missing a wonderful opportunity to connect into the soul of your business and therefore increase productivity, income and the level of joy you get from doing the work that you do. Everything is energy and all energy has a consciousness, which also means that the business that you have created and that is connected to your own energy field has its own spirit or soul. If your business is not yet where

and how you want it to be then it might be time to start treating it as if it does indeed have it’s own spirit and energy. By starting your day a little differently you could change your entire day. Start by greeting the soul of your business as you walk in the door. Try saying, “Good morning business, what adventures / fun / abundance can we create today?” Ask the soul of your business what it requires from you today or how you can serve it and therefore serve your purpose to your customers. If you want more customers ask for guidance on how to receive them. Ask how to improve or change your business in order to attract more customers. If you want to increase your bottom line and attract more abundance ask the soul of your business what you need to do and become in order to create that experience. Use open-ended questions such as, “How may I serve my purpose today?”

Raelene Byrne

and “What will it take for me to be in service today?” Then allow the spirit of your business to talk to you through your intuition and through following the energy wherever it flows. If you get a feeling to call a particular client for an update then do so and you’ll be surprised at what else transpires. Pay attention throughout the day for meaningful coincidences or synchronicities and know that your business is whispering its guidance to you. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for more obvious signs that are answers to your questions. They may show up in a conversation with a client who asks you for a service or product you don’t yet supply or feedback posted on your Facebook wall.

Maintaining energyIN BUSINESS WORDS DONNA McLAURIN-SMITH, The Green Nutritionist

A

re you ‘living the dream’, running your own business, but finding it’s not always as easy as it appears? Or are you working for someone else and find it hard to be inspired to give your very best, day in day out? How do you stay motivated, creative and energised in business especially in this industry where many of us are devoted to helping and energising others? A lot of it comes down to your selfbelief, self-care and self-motivation… that’s a lot of selfishness you might say, but to maintain the energy and drive to run your own business, or indeed to be productive when working for someone else, you need to put yourself first! Here are 5 easy ways to keep energised and enthusiastic in business every day: 1. GET ENOUGH DOWN-TIME – If you run your own business or work from home, it’s often hard to clock-off. Make sure you give yourself a few hours to wind-down after a productive day.

Close down the computer, switch the phone to silent and log-off social media. Have a warm bath, read your favourite book or magazine and generally recharge before getting a full night’s sleep – it’s the best recipe for an energised start the next day! 2. KEEP YOUR BODY HYDRATED – Start the day with a glass of filtered water with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to cleanse and rehydrate your body – then keep a glass bottle of water nearby or take with you to sip on as you work. 3. PUT NUTRITION FIRST – We all know how important food choices are, so choose wisely. Add lots of fresh vegetables, fruit, clean wholefood protein sources and superfoods to your daily routine – your body and energy levels will thank you for it! When that 3pm slump comes, blend up a green smoothie instead of reaching for the caffeine or chocolate! 4. MOVE YOUR BODY – It’s easy to get ‘stuck at your desk’ so plan to get up at least every hour. Walk around,

stretch your legs, even take a phone call outside in the sun (helps top up your vitamin D levels too). Make time for your favourite regular exercise, whether that be a weekly game of golf or a yoga class, it will help energise your body and re-charge your mind. 5. STAY CONNECTED – Keep in touch with like-minded individuals, business friends and others that you admire. These inspirational people will help keep you creative and motivated. Sometimes business can become all-consuming leaving little time for anything or anyone else, it’s important to keep connected to friends and family too, putting them first when need be! 6. LEARN TO DELEGATE – As your business grows, try to delegate or outsource some of the work to others. Know what you are best at and leave what you are not so good at to someone else, giving you back some valuable time and energy! greennutritionals.com.au

Private 1:1 Sessions with Jules O’Neill Change Your Beliefs, Change Your World There are times when we all require another set of eyes to gain clarity and assistance. If there is something that you are truly ready to look at and change – YOU can create it! Body Consciousness (BC) is a healing modality which connects into the Higher (Innate) Consciousness of the body. Tuning into the Innate with BC allows you to target, become accurately aware of and change subconscious core beliefs and perceptions that no longer serve you.

Energy IS EXTRA POTENT WORDS TONI REILLY

T

here is a strong universal pull creating an influx of people drawn to help others. No matter what age, previous experience or career background, they are choosing to follow the calling often beginning by completing a course or three. Massage is common, Reiki, tarot cards or crystals, moving on to coaching, NLP, counselling, hypnotherapy, regression and other holistic and mainstream modalities available to study. All this is terrific, except when the studies are finished, sometimes the only recipients of shiny skills are the lucky friends or family who volunteer to be test cases. If this was only ever your intention then, fine, however, those who intend to make a living doing this stuff often stop here. When you are the product, word of mouth is the most effective business card. While a marketing degree is not necessary; it is crucial to let people

when YOU are the product

know you exist. A web presence is essential to highlight WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THEM. Choose a theme and specialise. A list of what you studied is confusing and misses the opportunity to highlight the reason they will benefit from seeing you. It is important to manage your energies when you are the product. • Build rapport by being genuine, not stuffy, a warm open heart will shine through. • Focus your full attention on the client during a session. If anything comes up after, they will make another appointment. • Avoid confusing friendship with clients, friendship is balanced, give and take. • Keep boundaries strong. Being an on-call counsellor is draining and enabling. • Set work days and hours and keep to them. Just because you have a

mobile phone does not mean you are available to work 24/7. • Value yourself, set a fair fee and charge it. The human psyche perceives value when we pay. • Avoid party tricks. You are not there to provide insight or counselling in a social situation. How do you manage this? Kindly direct them to make an appointment. • Following up after a session or fishing for feedback is fuelled by a need for affirmation of a job well done, it is actually undermining. Detach from the outcome, and allow your client the space to integrate and grow responsibly. Persevere; building a reputation and practice takes time, years even. While you grow your business be professional and speak confidently of what you do. Kindness is the best medicine. For more information about SoulLife Psychology visit: tonireilly.com.au

THE AKASHIC RECORDS: your secret insight into business

success

WORDS JULIE JENKINS

P

ersonal and spiritual development are the hype words of the 21st Century in business. Selfimprovement has never been bigger business and finding and developing our spiritual path to help us align with our divine nature the same. The pressure is on to succeed in business, to be the best we can be. In an attempt to succeed in business as humans we launch into selfimprovement courses and try out new personal development techniques in order to “improve” ourselves. However, what most people fail to realise is that “they are perfect already”. What personal/spiritual development is really about is the uncovering of our true identity – our unlimited potential. However how can we be our best and truly improve our success if in fact we are working against our divine nature? So how do we find out who we really are at soul (spiritual) level? Having our Akashic Records read and doing some realignment work is a

journey that looks at all the choices we have made during our life time (past or present). Finding out how we can align ourselves in this human experience with our true divinity, which then with knowledge comes the power that allows us to create the abundance that is ours to have – whether that be abundance in business, life, money, love etc. Our lives are about a series of choices and consequences, when we can look at those choices we’ve made and see the misalignments we’ve created, then we can move forward to remove those and make better choices. When we truly understand that we are the creators of our own circumstances we can create the circumstances within any area of our lives that we want. In our business lives the main aim of personal development and spiritual selfimprovement is to remove our own selfimposed limitations and to take us to the realisation that we are the creators of our own experience and to achieve a deeper connection and understanding

of who we are, so we are working in a way that aligns us to our true divinity – how else can success really evolve? To become aware of our own self-imposed limitations we set goals. When we set goals we are immediately confronted with the misalignments that we’ve created which can then be removed for us to achieve success. It is our limitations, which only exist in our minds, that hold us back from knowing our Soul’s true nature (and therefore success at any level) and what energies it is designed to work with in particular and what gifts we have that we can work with to create our abundance and achieve our success in business. You owe it to yourself to align with your divinity and create your success!!

Holistic Business Profile:

MARIE TURTON – creator of Actual

Abundance at Eumundi

Holistic Bliss: How would you describe the way you work with people? Marie: I see people face-to-face and have ‘phone creative conversations’ when they say they are drawn and guided to what I ‘do’. They are however unsure what exactly that is. “My awareness guided me here,” they say. I opened my first shop in Montville years ago for people to come and be aware of the ‘being’ part of themselves guiding their lives. It assists them with all aspects of their living; showing them the way. It’s not about others; just for them. The spirit part has all their answers and is always with them showing them their journey and the choices available. Some know that something and someone is there but may not know who.

I am now working in Eumundi assisting people to work as a human being aware of their potential, choosing for themselves, being fully responsible for being here. Also showing them that the brain is repetitive and how to free themselves from this and create peace every day. Their lives become abundant, peaceful and yet powerful. They are no longer limited, they are always fresh and creating simple effective ways to be aware of life around them. There are no limits! Holistic Bliss: What does bliss mean for you? Marie: Bliss for me is being still and watching life evolve around me. Peaceful and yet so creative with life

every day. It’s freedom to choose and watch that blend with the flow of the day. Being in that ‘place’. Holistic Bliss: What inspires you? Marie: Life inspires me. Watching others choose themselves to be themselves. People’s potential that is really unlimited. Children who inspire their parents to live simply. Living with trees and forest all around with creatures who treat me as one of their own. The beauty that trees and flowers inspire in me. Watching the sea move inspires me. Me choosing me with peace, joy and abundance.

CRYSTALS, LAW

AND MY OWN

spirituality

WORDS KATHERINE McCALLUM

I

have a reasonably interesting past and the best way for me to write is to share my experience with you. Spirituality to me means many things, but at the very essence I equate spirituality with my personal authenticity, drive and passion. One’s connection to one’s ‘spirituality’ may not be readily accessible depending upon your personal circumstances. I say this on reflection of my own experience. I am approaching a fourth year anniversary of becoming a paraplegic following a fall from height. It is not a milestone that is expected to be celebrated, but I have had to observe and integrate the experience and the mental, emotional and physical consequences into my life, to make any sense of it. I have had a prolonged period to consider the meaning of my spirituality, amongst many other things when physically recovering from painful and extensive spinal damage. From this position I started a fresh contemplation of my existence and my experience of being human.

I equate ‘spirituality’ to personal energetic frequency. How much you choose to avail yourself of that frequency is a matter for you. Irrespective of how my spiritual awakening has manifested, I claim all the experience as my own, unwanted, painful or not. As a career-focused specialist litigation lawyer at the time of becoming paraplegic, I have changed. I have changed a lot. I was always a part-time artist with an interest in crystals. The inception of my business ‘Sweetness Skulls and Light (SS&L)’ was a spiritual progression that arose from a bedridden state and my desire to immerse myself in something I was passionate about without any other concern. SS&L is a retail business focused on crystal skulls and skull-based artwork, amongst other things. I am often asked, ‘why skulls?’ Really, ‘why not skulls?’ Having previously travelled to the historical ruins of the Mayans in Mexico as my background, I also see skulls as much of a symbol of rebirth as death. We all will pass. Ignoring or avoiding the fact to

me is shortsighted and detracts from the experience of being human. Strangely I feel I have been liberated to some degree. I now quite openly follow my spiritual energetic frequency to create without too much consideration as to any other factors. And consequently my business ventures have flourished. I still practise law but now with greater insight and a freedom I have not experienced before. And SS&L is a direct manifestation of my spirituality in a business form. The business will morph and mirror my own spiritual journey yet not ever feel like ‘work’ as such, as my drive and passion flow. I feel like there is so much more to engage and evolve from, and I am grateful for my experiences to date. I have plans to expand SS&L into both online and physical crystal skull workshops and retreats. I am in the flow with the glow of infinite possibilities just over the horizon. And I think that is pretty exciting. sweetnessskullsandlight.com

6 TIPS FOR KEEPING THE energy WORDS COLIN COOPER

FLOWING WITH YOUR TEAM

I

f you are an employer and your business is within the holistic modalities the chances are your employees or fellow therapists are very conscious of the energy surrounding them within your business. Having coached many businesses within the holistic industry we see employers often having a struggle between the energies of running a business for profit and helping individuals with their healing – your employees and fellow therapists have the same struggles. If you would like your business to employ highly motivated and highenergy level employees, then investing in the workplace atmosphere and facilities will help. The list below is designed for all work places however it’s a must within the holistic industries to bring in the right energy balance and create a sanctuary within your premises that aligns to your specific modality. These suggestions will not only support your employees but also support the clients visiting your practice. Create the right working conditions for our practitioners by:

1. Provide an attractive and comfortable work environment whenever possible. Pleasant surroundings can do more for a person’s attitude then we often realise. Create a less formal atmosphere by adding plants, candles, salt lamps etc. to improve decoration, and add ambience and light all five senses for practitioners and clients. 2. Supply a quiet room for your therapists to take their breaks in. Not a canteen or games room, this room should be separate from the normal “hustle and bustle” of the work-place. It will give your employees an opportunity of a quick 10-minute break from work and any work-related stress that they may be experiencing. 3. Instead of giving orders 100% of the time try to create opportunities for therapists to make decisions that will directly affect their performance within their modalities. This gives them a sense of personal power and less stress because they feel they have some control. Remember that their clients align with their energy and are drawn to

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!

individual therapists – we cannot adopt a production line modality. 4. Thank your therapists for work accomplished and recognise them for exemplary performance. Be genuine and authentic with them. In practices with many therapists be sure to thank for cross referrals to encourage a team environment. 5. Always choose ergonomically sound equipment, tools, and furniture. These will make work easier for your therapist, reduce workplace injuries and discomfort is not good for long sessions with clients. 6. Go out of your way to create opportunities for the employees to meet, socialise and build relationships away from work. Make sure debriefing opportunities for your therapists are available and encourage self-care. From time to time check in with them all to ensure their wellbeing.

SPIRIT/ENERGY IN BUSINESS

Are great leaders and strategists our

modern day Shamans?

WORDS SHARON BRESLIN

A

shaman is ‘one who sees in the dark’ and can sit in the “still moments”, tune into their soul, their higher self and bring forth vital information from the other side. They say, this is where the “genius” resides. Many a successful business or business idea has been born this way. In ancient times the shamans in the community, known as the seers and visionaries, were held in great respect. The whole community would rely on them for a problem to be solved, a person to be healed or a ceremony to be performed to protect either their people or the land. They were the wisdom keepers, the teachers, the healers, the community leaders and storytellers. GREAT leaders or strategists in today’s business jungle have exactly the same role to play. They make their mark, are one step ahead of the competition and earn the respect of the wider community as they utilise their intuition and connect with their “inner shaman” on a daily basis. Understanding the “way of the

shaman” can really heighten their ability to perform miracles in this dynamic business world we live in. Shamans developed an acute awareness of themselves, their people and their environment. They were able to read the blueprint of an individual and a space. Most importantly they knew how to harness their OWN POWER. Not only, how to harness it but in what direction to focus and direct it. Power is potential. Great leaders do this naturally and have a special way of empowering and teaching people. Leaders/strategists are often asked to predict an outcome in business – just like the shamans were asked to peer into the future and predict an outcome. To do this they would enter an altered state and commune with the spirit world. In today’s world many of our top leaders and strategists practise the art of meditation as the first steps towards the same results. This allows them to see clearly, access their inner strength, guidance and creativity. Regular meditation equips them with the tools to organically restore, invent or reinvent

a business or an aspect of a business. Some of the top leaders and strategists credit meditation in taking them from ordinary to extraordinary. Shamans are renowned for their “soul retrieval” work. They are able to read the “soul” and determine what part of the soul is missing due to the trauma experienced. If an individual has a soul and a business has a soul then understanding how to “mend the fragmented self or organisation” is a skill that our modern day shamans implement so very well as great leaders or strategists. Shamanic power is to enter the deep levels of awareness, to perceive secrets, remove obstacles and make a difference according to will and intent. Ultimately to “shape shift” – to transmute and transfigure something into a whole new form. I absolutely believe many of our great leaders and strategists are modern day shamans. They however, may not realise the extent of the depth or the origins of their own knowing. sharonbreslin.com

“The room reminded me of a luxurious Roman bath house and it was quite warm which was great given the cooler weather has arrived. After being shown in to the dark room, I was left alone, naked and I stepped into the warm water and started to float easily in the Epsom salts. I was aware of all my thoughts initially then I had very few, then no thoughts at all. I was weightless! My body felt deeply relaxed and there was a stillness that permeated the room.”

From the moment we’re conceived, we’re in survival mode. We have incredible survival mechanisms in place to ensure our time on the planet is as long as possible. Isn’t that the sweetest? Food is a necessary part of this survival, and any threat to its supply makes for one displeased carcass. In a very basic (low fat) nutshell, diets physiologically and psychologically catapult the body into this highly evolved survival mode. Extreme hunger, cravings, metabolic slowdown, low energy, waning willpower, apathy… These aren’t unique to dieters only. They’re unique to the survival of the species. A sense of failure and self-loathing however, is the dieters’ exclusive prize. Most diets require extreme (and

It would entail endless hours of hunger, willpower, disappointment, self-loathing and possible resentment, with zero guarantees. I would imagine I’d be more despised than Hitler! Except this isn’t the case. There’s a multi-billion dollar diet industry that continues to promise unrealistic claims and thrive on the vulnerability of people in desperation. We all know there’s an obesity epidemic. That’s old news. Yawn. There also appears to be as many diets as there are people.

Even the most disciplined among us can find ourselves face-planted in a bucket of fried chicken after a self-imposed bout of deprivation. This desperate and seemingly bizarre behaviour is not only expected, it’s actually inevitable. If you’ve ever held your breath under water for an extended period of time, you’ll notice how much extra oxygen your body will then attempt to suck in, to compensate when you surface back up for air. The body’s ability to keep everything consistent and well-regulated is one of its very endearing features. ‘Failing’ yet another diet means your body is doing its job. You get to live another day. Slap on a gold star – you’ve earned it!

UNCONDITIONAL WORDS JULES O’NEILL

F

love

SPIRIT/ENERGY IN BUSINESS

– CAN YOU GIVE IT?

or many years I have watched gorgeous souls attempt to love unconditionally. We all desire it, however not many of us are prepared for the intense uncomfortable emotional spaces that the concept needs to take you into and through to get there. Why do we want it? FREEDOM! It is the freedom we all look for. We are conditioned to believe that freedom comes from having money, lots of time, holidays, great jobs or relationships etc… Freedom really comes from the willingness to know who you are. All of YOU! To live via the integrity of your heart, not what society says or by the rules that are everywhere restricting us from doing this. These rules and restrictions have their place however they are really there to stop us leaning into deep uncomfortable emotional spaces. Because up until now, ‘mass consciously’ we avoid these at all costs. Why? They can get dramatic and cause stress. Not many of us handle them well. We fall into fear, projection and blame. We lose ourselves in them. Or

the parts we discover while in them – we don’t like in ourselves. Most of all leaning into uncomfortable emotional spaces knocks on the door of an innate fear in us all – When I give myself freedom and live via my own heart’s integrity, somewhere in that journey I find a belief that says – “if I love myself and others with an unconditional heart I will experience loss”. This is not true! So what can you do to give yourself true freedom and unconditional love? Let your heart rule your journey, with patient brave steps. There are no rules in this journey. Only your own discernment on what is light (not right) for YOU to discover and BE more of you. Experiences are needed to pursue this journey. The experience has the value! Many mistakes will be made. It is in the experience you discover more of YOU and can own who you are. By owning who you are you can change and evolve – FREEDOM! There is nothing to clear or get rid

of. It’s all YOU! Keep what feels light and let the natural process of life take the rest away. Awareness heals! Get confident and aware in uncomfortable emotional spaces. What’s really going on for you behind the fears? Your emotions are the fuel to lift you into LOVE! What’s the why? Magic, enchantment and wonder! It exists in these realms. On this journey of being led by your heart, your life will unfold around you. All possibilities exist and when you learn to embrace this, become friends with fear and get brave in opening up – it is a desirable expansive journey to be on. julesoneill.com

Being a drug addict from a young age and walking a different path, which led to a life of crime and mixing with some of the world’s most dangerous criminals, Jerry broke free from this life after a number of life altering events. A near fatal car crash, a trip to Alpha Centauri in a space craft, an encounter with an Angel and time spent in Egyptian Mystery Schools underneath the Great Pyramids, led to many insights and precious information. This enabled him to access and harness super-transformative healing energy which he now shares with the world through live events, shows, meditation workshops, training experiences, frequency encoded meditations, private and group healing sessions and the awesome team of Star Magic Facilitators.

re you hearing a call from within you to do something – to be “someone” – to play an important part in re-shaping this world? Yet, you seem to be “blocked” – paralysed to some degree by forces you can’t quite understand. These blockages are what I have termed “Love Blocks”, and they are evidence of old, lower world energy that you have survived, over lifetimes, that you are still working out how to escape. I see so many souls are in deep grief, because they have locked themselves away and are not living their life shining like a star – living with love, passion and joy, in their career and their love life. As much as they hope for it, on some level they believe it will only ever be a fantasy. Many people feel like it is their relationship, or lack of relationship, that is the cause for their unfulfilment. This is true for some relationships,

who do need to call it quits! However, for many couples I see the source of their issues are really stemming from the individual/s not being fulfilled personally and spiritually, by living a life on purpose. Their relationship is merely suffering due to the individual’s need to express their truth and be on purpose, not so much the relationship. Your love life and life purpose are intricately connected. In my upcoming on-line program and workshop on the Sunshine Coast, I am going to show you that when you unlock the doors that are holding your true-self and spiritual gifts behind them, that not only are you releasing limiting energetic, emotional, and mental blocks, you are also activating the most highest vibrating version of yourself; your Divine Self – whose each breath is purpose and love. The Divine Self is completely guided by, and serves through her spiritual

gifts in many creative ways (whether that is guidance to create a business, or take her gifts somewhere into the mainstream, your spiritual gifts, mixed with your divine essence and your particular life experiences all combine to make up your divine life purpose, no matter how or where you choose to express it). Every area of your life will be on purpose, not repeating negative karmic patterns of lessons in life and love. Here, your relationship is divinely on purpose – you may serve together in business, or be in different industries, where you can provide each other’s purpose with different levels of skills or knowledge that may be required. The union not only dynamically supports and encourages you both, but serves humanity, earth and spirit.

7 KEYS for better

IN BUSINESS

WORDS DR AMANDA WAALDYK, founder of Angea Acupuncture and Yoga (Angea) Clinic

R

unning a business can be demanding particularly if you are small business. It’s hustle and bustle from the time you wake till you hit the pillow. You may find yourself caught up in the day-to-day running of your business, which can be stressful at times. How do you reduce stress levels and create space and energy for a better business practice? We share with you seven ways you can embrace each day to reduce stress in your life and business: 1. GRATITUDE Practising gratitude allows you to shift your attention from what isn’t working in your life to what is. Be grateful for your health, a delicious meal, or the sun shining. Create a sense of gratitude in your heart and experience how your energy shifts. At the end of each day find three things you are grateful for and write them down. Take a moment to reflect on them. Observe how feeling gratitude can fill your heart and create a sense of contentment. 2. MEDITATION Meditation is the key to a healthy mind. Spend time allowing your mind

and body to switch off from your stressful, busy day. By giving yourself just 10 minutes will help reduce stress and improve your overall health and well-being. Meditation will help to ease your worries and bring you into the present moment. 3. YOGA Modern research has proven yoga reduces the stress hormone cortisol. Having a regular yoga practice helps to reduce stress by making you aware of the ways in which you store, create and perpetuate stress and tension in your physical body. 4. SHIFT YOUR PERSPECTIVE Life is full of ebbs and flows and some experiences can be harder than others. Having an awareness is the key to shifting and changing your perspective. The moment you become aware, the change has already begun. Begin by identifying the positive in each experience. 5. SLEEP In Chinese Medicine the best sleep is before 10pm. Sleep a minimum of at least 8 hours. Sleep helps restore

your body back to its natural state of wellness, balance your hormones, and most importantly regulates your circadian rhythm. 6. BREATHE The breath plays an important role and has a powerful influence over your physiological and psychological wellbeing. Breathing is something you don’t pay a great deal of attention too. In fact, it’s an unconscious response you do naturally. Different types of breathing patterns have distinct physiological effects. When you connect to conscious breath, it triggers the physiological response of rest and digest. 7. GO FOR A WALK Walking or any physical exercise helps to reduce stress. When you exercise, your body releases potent brain chemicals (endorphins) that relieve pain and initiate the relaxation response. Feeding your body with the release of endorphins creates a sense of calm and well-being. Stroll towards relaxation! angea.com.au

Once in a blue moon

– WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

WORDS RICHARD GILES

T

he phrase ‘Once in a Blue Moon’ is often related to two full moons in one calendar month. This is not the origin of the term ‘Blue Moon’ however, it’s much older as I’ll explain here. A real Blue Moon is when two Full Moons occur in the same astrological sign. The second one is called the Blue Moon. It derives from the Hindu tradition, the Indian Vedic culture, and is a very old celebration revered by Hindus relating to the god Krishna, whose skin colour was blue. The calendar concept of a Blue Moon is 19th century American derived. The modern Gregorian calendar is an artificial construct from our Christian Popes (derived from the Julian calendar). It does not relate adequately to natural cycles, whereas the astrological position of the Moon is far more important in terms of lunar cycles and the energy signature of each Moon phase. Before Pope Gregory, time was measured according to Moon cycles, change of seasons and the period between equinoxes and solstices.

The church came up with the idea of standardising the calendar with various 28 to 31 day months (the word ‘month’ is from Moon). When a Full Moon occurred at the first degree of a sign and then a Full Moon came in at the 29th degree of the sign, this second Full Moon was considered a very holy and auspicious day and spiritually significant for prayer and meditation. The blue Lord Krishna is revered as the divine flute player so the energy of the second Moon was considered ‘blue’ or divine by Indian holy men. Blue relates to one-to-one communication, and especially speaking the truth. The colour blue is idealistic, enhances self-expression and our ability to communicate our needs and wants. Blue’s wisdom comes from its higher level of spiritual intelligence. Blue is the colour of the spirit, devotion and religious study. It enhances contemplation and prayer. Blue Moons seem to occur every three years or so. This most recent one had two Full Moons in the Sagittarius/

Gemini axis on the 22nd May and 20th June. Because the Indian astrological tradition is a little different from the western tradition and they use a sidereal system based on where the constellations actually sit in the heavens, you may find dates will vary slightly. BLUE MOON Table – That second Full Moon in a zodiac sign is always the Blue Moon and the more powerful of the two. Each Blue Moon is a time for great ceremony, meditation and a new way of looking at the world. Time for us to appreciate that material wealth and bountifulness from the exploitation of natural resources will not solve all our problems. MAY/ JUNE 2016: Full Moon in Sagittarius at 1 degrees, 22nd May and a Full Moon in Sagittarius at 29 deg, on 20th June. MARCH/ APRIL 2019: Full Moon in Libra at 0 deg, 21st March and a Full Moon in Libra at 29 deg, 19th April. The next is July/August 2021. RICHARD GILES is an astrologer and Feng Shui practitioner.

DIMENSIONALLY DIVINE offers you the

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.

et’s take a little look into Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMF). Energy is electromagnetic in nature. All atoms, chemicals and cells produce electromagnetic fields. Every organ in the body produces its own bio electromagnetic field. Science has proven that our bodies actually project their own magnetic fields and all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange. When the electromagnetic activity of the body ceases, life ceases. Now keeping this in mind, it’s now easy to understand that many illnesses may be the result of the same basic dysfunction. Every illness is a bio-energetic (electrical) breakdown of the organism. It is a sign that the cells have been deprived of energy and the defense mechanism weakened.

is energy

It is then the task of Electromagnetic Therapy to remove the blockages that get in the way. Increased circulation is one of the most basic functions of PEMF. When a cell (such as a red blood cell) is injured or ill, it does not hold its ideal charge. This causes red cells to “stick” together, making circulation slow. When PEMF passes through the red cell, the membrane becomes properly charged, allowing the cell to repel itself and keep itself separate from other red cells, thereby increasing circulation. Poor circulation makes tissues unhealthy and prone to disease and breakdown. Improved circulation helps tissues get the nutrition and oxygen they need. Good circulation helps with tissue healing and regeneration. Other general health benefits of Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMF) include:

• Positive effects on pain reduction – arthritis, back pain, bursitis, muscle stress, etc • Strengthens the immune system • Speeds recovery from physical exertion, strenuous activities and workouts • Balances the body’s acupuncture meridians in just a few minutes • Improves wound healing – postoperative wound healing, better scar healing from injuries Application of electromagnetic energy will pass right through the body, penetrating every cell, tissue, organ and even bone. Having healthy cells is not a passive process. Active, regular tuning-up of our cells is not only feasible, but also necessary to slow ageing and reduce the risk of cell dysfunction. We are, after all, only as healthy as our cells. healingatlavender.com.au

A change model for the FUTURE: What is an WORDS HELEN DOWNS

Enterprise Eco-Village?

M

ost people are aware of the ecological rape and destruction of our beautiful Mother Gaia, but how do we move from the current paradigm and start to create a new way of living and being – in practical terms? A bold model that has now been activated is the Enterprise Eco-Village, which gets to the heart of matters and solves what may be the most pressing problem of our time – the need for sustainable solutions. ‘The Evolutionary Living Project’ was launched on the Sunshine Coast at the Time-Warp Festival, Palmwoods on the 7th May, 2016. Its founder, Simon Richard Bull, says the Enterprise Eco-Village model provides a living solution to the destruction of our planet and solves the paradox of the false choice between jobs or environment, by combining jobs AND environment… and a whole lot more, as it turns out!

The project is the next step in Simon’s 25-year journey so far, towards contributing to a sustainable planet. As an environmentally-aware marketing manager for the ‘Earth Repair Foundation’ in the 1990s, the threat of species extinction across the planet caused him deep soul searching and led to his quest for a global solution that could also work locally. As Simon explains, “The primary goal of The Project is to create 144,000 Enterprise Eco-Villages on the Planet by 2050. This turns the great challenge of sustainability and the false dichotomy of environment versus jobs into a marvellous and magnificent opportunity. Through the project we are invited to live with Gaia in a sacred partnership.” Some may say that the goal is too good to be true, but Simon believes that it’s good enough to be true. “The truth is we can have it all: jobs, enterprise,

development, environment, arts and culture, but we must be prepared to connect with a heart-centred focus and conscious awareness in partnership with Gaia to achieve it. The result can be a life of abundance if we but choose.” ‘The Evolutionary Living Project’ is a not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to providing the learning, the opportunities and the achievement of the goal. Simon describes that a classic ‘Aha!’ moment led to him being invited to undertake a Masters by research at the University of Technology Sydney. The resulting theory combines the fashionably nerdy with the ridiculously deep. “People’s eyes glaze over when I start explaining it in terms of Quantum Theory and System Theory. But when it’s framed as The Project to create 144,000 Enterprise Eco-Villages by 2050, people just love it,” he says. evolutionarylivingproject.net

J

ack is a young enthusiastic social entrepreneur, ploughing ahead, and as we discussed in the last edition he was naïve to the ‘physical IR’ required to keep his body functional. During these periods Jack would outsource team training to public relations firm Paris Ceetamol, to keep him from being distracted by the constant attention he needed to give those, “complainers”, and most times it worked. Morale went back to normal and Jack could power on again. He imagined that his passion would see him through, and all he had to take care of was the ending, to lap up the glory. The Trapezius Union on the other hand had more sinister plans. The neglect and lack of variety in its daily activity, including its ADHD tendencies, meant that it really only had a window of 30-45 minutes, where it was able to keep any meaningful KPIs maintained, before a change of task was needed. Recently its remuneration package had been dwindling ever so gradually, as the bank of life had eroded total

borrowings, and made some margin calls. Due to this, the whole spinal structure was beginning to see the impact fracturing of its recent EBA. Out of desperation, Jack started to employ the services of a management adjustment company, headed up by CEO Ibu Profen. Again this strategy worked, but not for long. They could never provide the resources that were required for long term team harmony, more likely it robbed the department and led to physical budget cuts, reducing the clean-up possible, because of reduced staffing levels. Jack’s frustration was building. He felt like the glory was slipping away. The dissention in his upper shoulders was all consuming; it was keeping him up at night, sapping the spark he started off with. The Trapezius Union, tired of the constant over-exertion, organised a complete stop-work meeting and Jack’s whole shoulders became the site of a huge picket line. No movement was going to happen until negotiations were

concluded. Jack thought a hard-hitting approach would help and enlisted the services of the picket line breaking team, Mercenary Cyndol. But in the aftermath it created more problems; trouble would just turn up in other areas. He felt this new solution had the greatest impact on his mental clarity to date and his productivity had ground to a total halt. Jack decided that he wasn’t getting the right advice and threw his hands up in despair. “I’m clever enough to figure this out,” he told himself! But there was so much information, and it was all in terms that were so alien to him. The nature of it was like drowning in the cumbersome contract law he had to get a grip on, to protect the IP contained within his fantastic idea. There must be something or someone that could help him? GREG BEERLING is an Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist with 17 years of experience dealing with musculo-skeletal pain and injury.

Each pose is designed to help you feel calmer, more flexible and less stressed.

WITH SARAH-ROSE SELLARS

SUP YOGA – what is it? Yoga on the water opens your mind, breaks down the walls and allows you to just go with the flow. It gives you a sense of freedom and has a lighthearted approach. Sup Yoga is a way of life; a lifestyle for those who love the water and being outdoors. Water is a natural healer and cleanser, this is why you are getting double the benefits when doing yoga on top of the water. Sup Yoga is extremely good for your core and teaches you better alignment in your everyday yoga class. Sup Yoga is not as hard as it looks; it brings more focus to your practice and allows you to become more mindful in everyday life. 1ST POSE HALF LOTUS Sanskrit name is Ardha Padmasana This is a great way to meditate on top of the water. Half lotus pose is an easy pose with your legs in a comfortable position. Sup Yoga is the only meditation where you don’t have to try, it comes naturally and you can feel at peace quite quickly as the water gives you a sense of deep calm and happiness. I honestly could sit and meditate here for hours; it’s easy to lose track of time passing as it’s so calming. Half lotus on a stand-up paddle board is a great way to clear your head and relieve stress. Sit in a comfortable position, lengthen your spine, find a quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on your breath and your surroundings.

grasps the intricacies of homĹ“opathic treatment. Often, when treating a patient homĹ“opathically, we find strange phenomenon of healing where the simillimum seems to stop working for the patient or the patient starts to relapse with old symptoms. A person without sufficient understanding of the specific nature of homĹ“opathic treatment and remedies can become quite disillusioned and perplexed with this seemingly frustrating event. In fact, it is this phenomenon that led many to totally disregard homĹ“opathy as a healing modality. It is only by the in-depth study of the writings of Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homĹ“opathy, that we can understand why this occurs and how it can be overcome. It was in Germany in 1828 that Samuel Hahnemann first made public his theory of ‘miasms’. Throughout the first thirty years of successful homĹ“opathic treatment, Hahnemann was noticing more and more patients either relapsing into old illnesses or that homĹ“opathic treatment seemed to be stalling in some of his patients. Hahnemann stated that this phenomenon was brought on by hereditary dispositions to certain diseases. He named three such diseases that in his opinion were the root cause of all illness. These being:

1. Psora or chronic itching of the skin. Hahnemann believed that this was the first such disease and in fact the very root of all disease. Hahnemann stated that the generational desire to suppress the symptoms of itch on the skin using topical medications that led to all chronic illness. By suppressing these symptoms and the body’s ability to use the skin as a means to cleanse the body, the body was forced to create new illnesses and find more complex diseases to express disunity in the body and attempt selfcure. 2. Sycotic or diseases of overgrowth or excess. Symptoms of this disease tended to centre around diseases around the urinary tract but also included asthma, tumours and genital herpes and tended to be permanent and never fully disappear using conventional medication. These diseases were a result of suppression of psoric disease. 3. Syphilitic or destruction, which prior to the ‘antibiotic age’ inexorably was a death sentence for the patient. These diseases were utterly destructive both physically and mentally and included cardiac disease, aortic disease, aneurysms and drug and alcohol addiction. Again, these afflictions were a further result of suppression of both psoric and sycotic conditions. Hahnemann stated that these dispositions to diseases could be and

in fact were passed on to subsequent generations and would indeed continue to progress in severity unless removed. Perhaps this is why, some two hundred years later, we see so many diseases that are utterly destructive in their nature and are at epidemic levels throughout the world and are now even affecting the very young?? Using specific homœopathic techniques devised by Hahnemann throughout the latter stages of his life, Hahnemann stated that these miasms could be successfully removed from an individual and ensure that the tendency for chronic illness was lifted not just in their lifetime but in fact for subsequent generations. It is only a fully registered and licensed homœopath (visit aroh.com.au) that is familiar with specific miasmatic theory and technique. These homœopaths have dedicated many years to learning their craft and are adept and dedicated to homœopathic principle and subsequent treatment. We must remember that Samuel Hahnemann hypothesised miasmatic theory prior to any knowledge of DNA or genetic makeup. It seems modern medicine is just catching up with his revolutionary thinking. organon.net.au

Is child rearing

LIKE RUNNING A BUSINESS?

WITH JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education

W

hen you have a family it is like running a business! What energy you put in to the children and family brings specific results. Best to understand through a child example. Jason was real with his family. At school he was the perfect student. He was academic, excelled at school and followed all the instructions. He was the ideal student. At home he was the same except for one thing; his attitude about life, the universe and people. He liked to think deeply and profoundly. He could access consciousness, universal laws, past lives and the spiritual side with ease. Jason is now 18 years old but I can recall when his parents brought him to me and thought that he had imaginary friends and was making it up. Jason was being himself by stating what ‘the blue men’ said. Jason connected with Pleiades and the wisdom of those times and would say profound wisdom that no five-year-old would know. He knew when there would be an earthquake and the dynamics of mathematical formulas. His wisdom and insight were

not of this world. His sharing would scare his parents. Jason talked of aliens and intergalactic wars. He did not hide this side of himself. During the primary sessions it was important for Jason’s parents to understand him and learn what will best empower and support him. The energy they invested in him with their thoughts, actions and perceptions could make or break him. His Dad said is it like having a business? My answer was yes. When we have children, like a business, we need to plan, project the future and review what is a good or bad investment. I needed to explain to the Dad how children and child rearing was energy but he needed to understand a left brain logical way such as business, as that was his background. Whereas Jason’s Mum totally understood energy. Children thrive on positive thoughts, messages, encouragement and the opportunity to learn through mistakes which really are learning lessons. They have the innate ability to tune in to the subtle energies and they learn from watching you.

Millennium Children The home environment, if filled with supportive and encouraging actions, will filter in to the child sublimely and allow them to know what is a ‘normal’ energy and that will assist them to grow in all areas in a healthy and happy way. Just like a business, create a team environment, share goals and insights, mention success and see all ‘mistakes’ as learning lessons. So for you and your children, what energy will you put in? What energy will you give it? Enjoy the journey. For Medical Intuitive courses or to learn about empowering your child contact JEAN SHEEHAN AbsoluteEmpowerment.com

AUTHOR Wendy Dumaresq This is a mother’s story of anguish, grief, and gratitude; a parent’s rite of passage through the traumas of suicide, secrets, and spirituality. The story is interwoven with an emerging wisdom of acceptance and forgiveness including mindful presence, meditation, and surrendering to the flow of life ‘as it is’.

“This book is a priceless gift from a courageous, beautiful soul and a shining beacon for our troubled modern world. If you have ever tried to find comfort and healing through spiritual paths when in deep pain and grief, then here is a guide who can assist you out of the darkness into a new dawn of forgiveness and freedom.” – Sally Oldfield (Singer Songwriter).

RRP: $24.99 To purchase the book go to: www.sorayasaraswati.com

WHY ARE WE SO

Different?

Wendy owned the ‘Rad Pads’ business for ten years and she is also an holistic coach and author with decades of experience in the natural holistic field. Her new book is a practical and empowering read which allows women at different stages of their journey (through menstruation, menopause and beyond) to feel understood and nurtured by the information in this book. Becoming ‘boss of self’ means taking 100% responsibility for the life you create. The book is not about fixing women from a place of being ‘broken’, it’s a reminder that we instead can remember who we really are.

WHAT IS A

Phyto Treatment?

W

hether it’s the early onset of wrinkles and pigmentation, or the pesky problem of breakouts and skin sensitivity, skin care experts agree on one thing: a gentle treatment with natural herbs and enzymes is the secret to reviving skin. “In our youth, healthy skin has the remarkable ability to regenerate by frequently turning over skin cells, and our complexion looks its most radiant as a result,” explains Dr Spiller Skin Care Expert, Sue Dann. “But as we age, our skin cell turnover slows down and we start to experience dullness, loss of elasticity and age spots. Unless, of course, we encourage the skin’s natural regeneration process to function at its healthy best using natural herbs to stimulate the skin.” The results of a Phyto Treatment are similar to a strong micro-dermabrasion

procedure but with one key difference: no harmful micro-injuries are inflicted on the skin’s delicate acid mantle, so the complexion won’t suffer from redness, irritation or sensitivity as a result. “Instead of causing injury by blasting the top layers of skin off, as is done with micro-dermabrasion, the Phyto Treatment involves massaging active herbs into the skin and allowing them to slowly release their phytoactive vitamins, minerals and vital trace elements over 24 hours,” explains Sue. “In fact, the Phyto Treatment is so gentle that it’s safe for pregnant women or those with sensitive skin and can be repeated every fortnight. It’s the ultimate quick fix skin treatment to achieve a smoother, plumper complexion.” Formulated in Germany, decades of research has gone into creating this safe and effective herbal formula. With no

visible peeling or downtime, the Phyto Treatment is the perfect way to refresh ageing, tired or problem skin in your lunch hour. “Clients are always amazed that such a gentle treatment can produce such incredible results,” says Sue. “It’s the ideal solution to revive a dull complexion for a special occasion, to settle problem skin during pregnancy or to help calm sensitivity. “You’ll see results with just one Phyto Treatment because the combination of lymphatic massage and active herbs boosts the skin’s microcirculation. However, a course of 4-6 treatments will help you achieve visible improvements to the skin’s structure and appearance,” says Sue. “It’s a relaxing treat for tired or stressed skin that can deliver real results.” For more information contact Anne or Bronwyn at Ibuki Health. ibukihealth.com

Eco Tan was founded on the principles of serving others and I’ve always said that we were born with two arms; one to help ourselves and one to help others. In the five years since its conception, Eco Tan has always been out in the community, helping other small businesses grow in the same way. My core beliefs rely on the foundation of serving others so I am extremely passionate about helping other women in business which is why I started the Eco Community Mentoring program. It gives me the chance to connect with incredible women and offer mentoring advice to other businesses. There are

so many talented women who have the most innovative ideas but just need some assistance in making it commercial or even just having the confidence to back themselves and pursue their dreams. I am so grateful for what I have and am grateful for the opportunity to give back and share my blessings with others. I believe that we should help each other and lift each other up – there is room for us all to create and achieve amazing things! I also strongly believe that ‘the energy of your business’ is reflected in the way you operate your workplace, the way you treat your employees and thus the environment and culture you create.

PROFILE OF AN ESSENTIAL OIL:

Grapefruit

WORDS KIM MORRISON

I

f you ever feel like you need an energy boost or that you want to rediscover your zest for life then grapefruit might just be the ‘pep’ you are after! Using this exquisite oil in your vaporizer, diffuser, or in a spritzer bottle is probably the quickest and most effective way to embrace its virtues. Grapefruit is a cold-pressed oil extracted from the rind of the fruit. It is not only used in aromatherapy but also as a flavouring agent in softdrinks and as a fragrance component in soaps, detergents and personal care products. This light, citrus oil has very uplifting effects. It is refreshing and revitalising and has wonderful detoxifying qualities – both mentally and emotionally. This can be particularly beneficial in the work place where deadlines can be pressing and demands may be high. It is the oil to help focus on life’s positives and is one of the best oils to help nourish the soul and inspire the heart. Combined with exercise and a clean

diet you can have remarkable results using grapefruit in a body blend with oils like juniper, cypress and rosemary. This beautiful combination can be helpful for cellulite, weight-loss and fluid retention. Just make sure you massage onto the effected areas with care and gently show your body how much you appreciate – not loathe – it. This valuable oil is ideal for treating stress, anxiety and nervous exhaustion and is perfect for people who feel wrung out, disappointed, maybe even depressed. A great winter oil – especially when energy levels may be low – you can add one drop onto a tissue with one drop of frankincense for an instant lift. Simply tuck this tissue into your shirt pocket or bra and enjoy its aroma throughout the day. From a skincare point of view grapefruit is particularly beneficial in helping treat conditions like acne and oily skin. Fill your bathroom sink or a small bowl with warm to tepid water,

add 2 drops grapefruit, 1 drop tea tree and 1 drop lavender. Agitate the water and immerse a cotton face cloth. Gently wring out the cloth and compress onto a clean face, pressing into the skin with love and care. Repeat 3-4 times before using a natural, deeply replenishing serum or moisturiser. The important thing to remember is when you have skin conditions or health concerns, it is the body’s way of communicating with you that something is not quite right. By honoring these conditions and treating them with care and high quality oils – especially beautiful grapefruit oil – you are giving the body the best chance to restore and repair. From an emotional and mental point of view grapefruit can help to release feelings of self-doubt and frustration and it is one of the best oils to help instigate playfulness, fun and child-like wonder back into your world. twenty8.com

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

What is an holistic vet? WORDS DR RENEE O’DUHRING

H

olistic is quite a buzzword these days, along with wellness and anything to do with alternative health and healing. But what exactly does it mean to be an holistic vet? The conventional medical approach to disease is to try to work out what label to apply and then what treatments are relevant. For example, a lump = cancer = chemotherapy. Skin itching = allergies = cortisone + flea chemicals + medicated washes + antibiotics. As a graduate vet many years ago, I very quickly became frustrated by this approach. Why had I studied for five years to become a dispensary? It seemed like it didn’t matter what walked through the door, almost everything ended up being treated with antibiotics and either anti-inflammatories or cortisone. And the patient, instead of being cured, would return a few weeks or months later (depending on the strength of the individual) with the same problem, or something even worse. As someone who had always looked deeper for the cause when it came to my own health, it made sense to me that the same philosophy could apply equally to animals. And so my holistic veterinary

journey started. I studied veterinary homoeopathy, Chinese veterinary herbal medicine, acupuncture and natural nutrition. And in the course of my studies, I discovered a way of treating animals that made perfect sense to me, an approach that looked more deeply at each presenting problem to determine why it was there in the first place. Our aim as holistic vets is the pursuit of health and healing for your pet, rather than the suppression of symptoms with drugs that provide only short-term relief. We strive to uncover the root causes of disease, and treat these to bring about a cure. This involves taking an extensive history, examining the animal’s current and past health complaints, discussing diet and lifestyle, looking for patterns, determining whether vaccines have played a role in the disease, minimising drugs, chemicals and unnecessary interventions, and instead working to strengthen the body using gentle but powerful tools that give the power back to the body, stimulating it to heal from within. For me, my passion is diet. If you get the diet right by feeding an animal what they are anatomically and physiologically

Scientific Trials have confirmed effective use of One Needle Acupuncture resolving allergies in 42.8% of cases in a single treatment. Same treatment in the use of controlling Cancer with a single treatment. Is it not time to try some very special medicine to help your pets?

designed to eat, then the animal will be naturally stronger and healthier with a clean internal system, well-oxygenated blood, and a functioning immune system that is able to naturally withstand disease. Of course diet is not the only factor. Adequate sunshine, fresh air, time spent in nature, companionship, healthy socialisation opportunities and rest are all equally important and also need to be attended to for an animal (or a human) to be healthy. But without feeding a natural, wholefoods, balanced diet, lasting health and vitality will be difficult to sustain. Food is medicine, in its most powerful form. Holistic veterinary medicine provides the knowledge and tools to delve deeper into illness, aiming always to provide long-lasting results. It is certainly rewarding and empowering, for us and the animals we treat. thenaturalvets.com.au

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

The spirit of leadership through the way of the horse WORDS ALANE MILLIONS

H

ow can understanding and partnering with horses support us to be better leaders in business and in our personal lives? Horses are social herd animals that are in attunement with a hierarchy. The herd has a social order that has leaders and followers, much like humans. Often a well-defined pecking order is established with rules to be enforced. If rules are broken, the offender could find themselves outcast from the herd and thus vulnerable to predators. Behaviours are carefully followed and any punishments are swift, usually with just movement of the head, ears laid back or if need be a nip or kick just to get the point across. Most often the Alpha Horse will be a lead mare who provides leadership and security within the herd. The complex social dynamic supports each horse to know their place and utilise their strengths. Through her high level of attunement with the environment and heightened intuitive skills, she has developed a high tolerance for vulnerability and leads with subtleness and understanding of how to conserve energy for true emergencies. If one is

experiencing stress all the time, how can you have the energy and strength to be a good leader, to assess information quickly and with discernment? Horses teach us to strengthen our emotional intelligence skills and face adversity with bravery and nonpredatory power. Leadership skills can be learned from horses through trust building, co-operation and personal empowerment processes. When we are working with horses, we must master the skills of implementing boundaries, wielding power appropriately and increasing communication and trust. Fortunately horses do not care where

we come from, how much money we make or what car we drive. They do not judge us for our past indiscretions, so when we are in the presence of a horse they are assessing us through non-verbal communication of “who we are on the day� and whether or not we have taken the time to build a rapport with them. This will discern how the interaction with them will go. If any steps in this nonverbal communication are missed, trust is not created and the foundations for a good relationship are impaired. The unique blend of kindness, authenticity and vision that horses offer are exactly what we need to be amazing leaders for ourselves and others. We must bring our predatory nature back into balance, understanding that in order to maximise success we must master our dominant nature. Working as a herd, together and cohesive, you share the same vision, build on personal strengths and provide a balance of stability. When facing unfamiliar situations the powerful presence of the horse strengthens the spirit of leadership. leadingthewayinternational.com
