his has been a particularly heartfelt and memorable edition to create with a dynamic group of people sharing their unique wisdom. Every person has added to the collective energy of this month’s magazine and together we have created something special that has a vibration of its own. I find it amazing that each word, each image, each article, has an energy and a potential to be a catalyst for change, particularly if the reader is open and at a point of readiness to take the next step and implement changes in their lives. Our feature topic this month ‘science meets consciousness’ has allowed me to reflect on many things including my own professional background as a writer, editor, publisher and psychologist (there is a ‘science’ and an intuition to writing or editing an article, facilitating others and running a magazine). The sciencebased way of working; the pragmatic can complement and validate the intuitive, spiritual, heart wisdom, which can create

shifts in consciousness for the facilitator and the one asking for facilitation. In fact, thanks to the new world scientists, more of the ‘unknown’ can be known and many more people can be part of the global conscious change process. I feel very fortunate to be living in a time when these seemingly disparate worlds can see eye to eye and we can share our wisdom together and create a new way forward and a new way of being. From the bottom of my heart (words really don’t fully express my appreciation and joy), thank-you to Raelene Byrne, for her outstanding commitment and contribution to this field for decades and for her account of her life-changing experiences with world leader Gregg Braden in New Mexico recently. Holistic Bliss is very blessed to have the opportunity to share her amazing insights and impressions of Gregg and share his profound, heart-based and scientific body of work (see pages 20-21).

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Raw Banana and Guava Pie RECIPE MARIE ANITA JAMES

• Dairy free, grain free and vegan • Use organic and local ingredients whenever possible

I

recently went out to my friend’s organic farm out behind Mullumbimby, northern New South Wales, with the intention to pick some fresh produce so I could create some delicious food. The farm is home to a variety of bush tucker, exotic food and other beautiful fruit and vegetables and it just so happens one of my favourite fruit is in season: guava. Such an underrated, juicy and tangy fruit that needed to be celebrated and a pie was completely necessary! If guavas are not in season or unavailable to you, you can easily supplement any type of berry that will work a treat! Ingredients: BASE 1 cup dates, dried 1 cup coconut, desiccated ½ cup hemp seeds ½ cup buckwheat kernels

1½ cups raisins 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted Pinch of salt Knob of ginger, grated (optional) FILLING 1 medium banana ¼ cup cacao butter, melted ¾ cup coconut oil, melted 1/3 cup pure maple syrup 1 cup cashews, soaked 3 medium guavas Method: 1. Line a pie dish with greaseproof paper ensuring you have enough excess paper to use to leverage the pie out of the dish. 2. Combine the coconut, hemp seeds and buckwheat kernels in a processor and pulse until the buckwheat becomes a coarse crumb 3. Add the remaining ingredients to the

Gluten Free Health Cafe & Bakery

processor and process until a sticky dough forms. 4. Press the dough into the pie dish evenly across the bottom and sides and set aside. 5. Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a blender and blend until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. 6. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and refrigerate overnight to set. 7. Once set, garnish the pie with fresh fruit, flowers and seeds. www.marieanitas.com

Product Review

It’s

worth a shot!

WORDS VANESSA FINNIGAN

W

hen the mail arrived today, it felt a bit like Christmas, unwrapping a mysterious box to find a bottle of Joule’ of Thor. What a gift! This drink is heralded as an ancient healing elixir created by the ‘Indiana Jones of Wholefoods’, Don Tolman. So after giving the bottle a shake (watching the gold leaf flakes float around in the bottle) I grabbed my shot glass and the tangy liquid went ‘down the hatch’ very nicely. This product came at just the right time, as I was on deadline producing this edition and so about an hour after I had the shot, I noticed myself feeling ‘clearer in the head’ and more energised. Don Tolman’s Joule’ of Thor is

a natural drink you can take in the morning to target and elevate the functional health of the brain, skin, digestive system and the miles of nerves that run through your body. Joule’ of Thor combines the healing powers of 24ct medicinal gold (edible gold flakes) carried by aloe vera, a plant anciently referred to as ‘The Potted Physician’ and the ‘Plant of Immortality’, and organic cinnamon oil. The mixture is thought to boost immunity, heal digestive problems, muscular aches and pains, skin ailments, protect the cells from freeradical damage and enhance emotional and mental balance. Gold infuses the entire brain and nervous system with increased electric spark for your cells to access their highest functional capacities, whilst aloe

vera is a renowned powerful medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years to provide the body with numerous benefits including hydration, digestion and strengthened immunity. Don says the Joule’ of Thor has assisted at least a dozen people with mobility issues by incorporating this wholefood drink and ‘Pulse’ into their daily regimes. Directions: Shake well and drink a ‘shot’ of 30ml once daily, first thing in the morning. Joule’ of Thor is also safe for children. Higher doses may cause diarrhoea, cramping and loss of electrolytes. Not recommended during pregnancy in case cramping is experienced. www.tolmanselfcare.com

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Are you living a sweet

life?

WORDS DR CARLOS SANCHEZ

I

was only 12 months old when ‘Pure, White and Deadly: How sugar is killing us and what we can do to stop it’ was written by British physiologist and nutritionist John Yudkin. Not a lot has changed with regards to what we should be eating for the last 40-something years. I remember growing up in Spain when new and fancy foods started to pop up in the 80s which were promoted as healthy and thought to prevent heart attacks! Look how the health stats have worsened since then! The numbers for chronic degenerative diseases have skyrocketed. Two-thirds of the Australian population is obese or overweight. Diabetes is becoming normal, even with the change of reference range of fasting glucose in the pathology tests.

Well, I can tell from my clinical experience that this is not genetic. Genes don’t change in just a few decades. Indigenous people of Australia did not suffer with this terrible disease before Europeans arrived. It’s ludicrous how the sugar industry has appeared recently on ‘Four Corners’ on the ABC and is still trying to justify the obesity problem as people not exercising, not burning enough calories, saying that sugar in moderation is okay. But this is happening all over the world including in my country of origin. In the short period of almost 25 years since I left Spain, I have seen the difference in people’s body shape. A recent study done in Scotland demonstrated that 90 percent of people

with Type II diabetics who were put on a supervised calorie restricted diet and lost 15 kilos in weight, reversed their diabetes. In this trial they stopped their diabetes medication and antihypertensives from day one. Things are starting to change! Only a couple of years ago, an English GP, Dr David Unwin was awarded ‘Innovator of the Year’ for being a low carb advocate by the UK Royal College of General Practitioners. Thanks to social media, journalists and the community asking questions, this is helping doctors to change their views about certain doctrines that have been questionable all along. www.ibukihealth.com

Why does

emotional stress

affect your physical

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

H

ave you ever experienced the phenomenon of the ‘nervous poop’ and wondered what’s going on? You know the feeling: you’ve got an exam to take, an important work meeting or a big game to play, and all of a sudden you have an urgent need for a bowel movement. You might write it off as nerves but it’s not all in your head, there’s actually some pretty specific science behind this physiological reaction. Let’s examine why stressful situations often send us running for the loo. It’s not just nerves… it’s your nervous system! You have an autonomic nervous system, which controls and influences the way your internal organs function. This is further broken down into your sympathetic nervous system (which controls the fight or flight response) and the parasympathetic nervous system (which controls your more tranquil rest and digest response). When we are faced with situations where we

may need to get ready for a physical challenge (the ‘fight’ response) or retreat from a challenge (the ‘flight’ response), your sympathetic nervous system takes over and involuntarily controls the reflexive responses of your colon in order to ‘protect’ you from harm. So why does stress make you want to poop? Well, the human body uses up to 70% of its energy on the sole task of digesting food. When faced with stressful situations like an exam or a game, your sympathetic nervous system interprets this demanding scenario as a fight or flight response. Back in the cavemen days it would have been a life or death situation. Such events require a lot of energy to either stay and battle or run away at speed. Therefore, your body says “right now is not the time to be wasting 70% of my energy digesting food, I’m going to dump as much waste as possible so I have maximum energy to fight or flee”. Hence, the urge to evacuate your bowels when you’re

stressed – your body is trying to look after you by retaining as much energy as possible! Modern day applications We can use what we’ve learnt about how the body reprioritises energy and apply this principle to help heal ourselves through fasting. The philosophy behind water or juice fasting involves giving your digestive system a break, so that your body can redirect the energy that would previously be used digesting food, toward other healing tasks such as autophagy and cell regeneration. We witness this practice in nature too – if an animal gets sick or injured, it can’t very well go to the hospital, so it will often rest and fast to conserve energy, permitting its body to focus on the sole task of healing and renewing. So next time nerves or stress sends you to the toilet, thank your body for trying to look after you! www.sunshinecolonics.com.au

Happy Mouth – a ‘youthening’ system WORDS SHAUNA TEAKEN

Y

our mouth is actually a gateway to the health of your body. Research has shown that at least 80% of all disease in the body has at least a partial connection to the mouth. When you get clear with your mouth, the rest of the body benefits greatly. The mouth is a place where literally millions of energies can get stuck lifetime after lifetime. And, if you think about it, the mouth is a part of so many different survival aspects of the body. We communicate with the mouth, we get nourishment with the mouth, you have sex with the mouth, and you can breathe through the mouth. The two major dental issues – tooth decay and gum disease Receding gums has to do with the time/space continuum with regards to ageing – a program which says that as you get older, the gums must recede and the teeth fall out as a function of

10

10.indd 1

| JUNE 2018 | Holistic Bliss

age. Receding gums are a result of buying into that program – they are the manifestation of ageing embodiment. Is that actually necessary? Or is something else possible for our bodies? A lot of people have plaque, which is that pithy white film on the teeth that hardens up and when you go to the dentist, has to be scraped off. Surprisingly, our bodies have within them a particular micro-organism whose job it is to actually take care of and dissipate the plaque in our mouth. These are very minute organisms and they literally cannot be found under a microscope – they could be found under an atomic microscope but there is no dental researcher that has actually looked for them. Why? Because they do not have the point of view that there is actually an organism that is beneficial to taking care of plaque and calculus. They assume that plaque must always be removed!

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, has to do with plaque and calculus build-up, and gum disease can be reduced by the removal of plaque and calculus. With Happy Mouth, we have a process to re-activate these little organisms that handle plaque. Some of the other dormant generative systems we can activate are where you can generate healthy tooth structure if you have wear or decay on a tooth, regenerate bone, ways to have a new tooth show up if you are missing a tooth, and also a youthening system for the whole body. The Happy Mouth system is offered around the world as trainings conducted by Dr Tom Kolso. Happy Mouth Facilitator & Coordinator SHAUNA TEAKEN is based in Brisbane, Australia and conducts Happy Mouth Basics classes. You can find her at: www.shaunasisland.com

Frequency technologies,

WORDS TATIANA SAVERY

B

io-individuality, a revolution for your health… A young woman slumps into her bed exhausted after another long day, research, meetings, the never-ending string of medical appointments, blood tests, biopsies and trial medications or herbs, allopathic or naturopathic… How does the suffering end? When does it finish? And the real question, when does a life of ease begin? There is a revolution! Health, your way… every one of us is a completely unique bio-individual complex field of frequencies. Everything in our universe has a frequency. What if we take a completely new perspective? What if we can find the cause of suffering through our frequency? Yes, the key to your reality is in your frequency. The current world population as of May 2018 is 7.6 billion, this means we have 7.6 billion people with completely unique frequencies. Every one of us is complex, so is there one way that can bring health and joy to reduce suffering?

There are as many ways as there are frequencies. Frequency technologies are bridging science with natural laws creating a new perspective, one where suffering, disease and complex emotional blockages can be eliminated with ease. Every disease, emotion, spoken word, healing modality whether allopathic, integrative or alternative has a frequency. What is your frequency? What frequency is stored within your body? New technologies available from leading scientists worldwide are here now to support and assist. Russian technology developed by the Russian Space program, German, Swiss and Japanese technologies are leading the way to allow each one of us to walk our way to a joy-filled life. Technology has been abused, in many ways now causing a new discord within our bodies, and our society. However there is also a new field of science bridging the gap and understanding who we really are;

connecting us back with our true infinite self. The self, connected to the whole, yet biologically individual, with its own frequency. Bio quantum medicine is a new perspective, where technologies are able to source a frequency that may be causing suffering and pain (whether generations back or a recent cause of stress), and harmonise the cells. This can eliminate a held frequency, changing habits and creating a life filled with more ease. To create connection with each other, with our earth and our true unique gifts, it is paramount we engage to shift our frequency. TATIANA SAVERY has over 30 years’ experience in the health industry. Aware of a missing link between what causes illness to treating illness, she began working with leading edge scientists to bring frequency technologies in line with natural laws to the public. The Powertube is available in Australia and will be launched in Wellington, New Zealand July 29th & 30th. Email: tatiana@frequencyacademy.com.au

Shine bright WORDS CHRISTINA DIVINE

A diamond is just a chunk of coal that did really well under pressure.  – Henry Kissinger

I

’ve been listening to a really cool song lately, ‘Whatever It Takes’, by Imagine Dragons, I love the line “Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains”, it kind of sums up how I live my life. I’m not willing to be chained by others’ ideas, or perceptions of me; and believe me I used to. Sometimes experiences happen that turn us inside out and upside down, it’s more the Universe stretching us, and do we really need them? I guess it depends how much we’re willing to stretch. When my friend was murdered a few years back, it was an experience that took me beyond what we normally experience on planet earth and the fragility of life, the gift of it, the realisation of how precious our lives are,

like a diamond

hit home! A few months later a friend of mine suicided. It was a wake-up call on so many levels and yet now when I look back at who I’ve become, I’m happier than most people. During this time I became extremely present, raw, and a fearlessness emerged that I’d not known before. Little things like getting to the shops to buy food became a daily act of courage, actually just getting out of bed was. I went from burying a friend of mine who had suicided, to an audition the next day. It was as if the acting roles I was playing not only gave me a place to escape, but allowed me to step into another character and become more of me. I now believe that no matter what has occurred in our lives, we can rise above to become who we were truly meant to be. Over the last few years I’ve been travelling between New Zealand and

Australia, writing my sci-fi film – the catalyst my friend’s murder. I’ve found myself on set shows like ‘800 words’, watching, as an idea once conceived comes to life. Since returning to New Zealand last year it’s like I’ve actually come home – the very place I ran from was the place I ran to, and in the process I came home to me. With the lush green landscape, the welcoming sound of the Tui bird, how could this not be paradise? CHRISTINA DIVINE is a Transformation Coach who epitomises the idea that we are greater than we know. Christina is a beautiful invitation to awaken you to your dreams and expand personal magic in your life. www.accessconsciousness.com/ christinadivine www.itunes.apple.com/us/album/trilogysingle/1060328168

horopito

5 things to love

A

fter working several years in hospitality in London and Sydney, I moved to New Zealand to balance my lifestyle. Living at the foothills of Mount Ruapehu, I was presented with the horopito herb by the locals, packed with anti-oxidants, polygodial with strong anti-fungal properties and tasted great as an herb. I am now the largest culinary supplier. Horopito has survived over 65 million years through the ages due to its antifungal properties and this was used traditionally by the Maori and early European settlers as a food/medicine for Candida and fungal problems. My company ‘Rhayne’ promotes the use of horopito and kawakawa to be used in everyday cooking at home, however it’s mainly found at high-end restaurants and adventurous home kitchens. Working hard to promote horopito and kawakawa as a food has been no easy feat and we have worked hard to get approval from Foodstuffs and will soon be rolling out into selected New World and Pak n Save throughout NZ.

about New Zealand

WORDS KIM MORRISON

The scenery – you can’t beat the number of walks, trails and hikes you can do on the North and South Island. One of my favorites is the Queen Charlotte Track at the top of the South Island. Over five days, you get to walk around 70km and stay at beautiful lodges with great meals. Your bags are carried to each destination point, so it is all rather civilised and enjoyable. The scenery is breathtaking at every turn. The people – seriously!! Kiwis are friendly, laid-back types and incredibly helpful and welcoming. We know we have to travel and explore the big wide world, which teaches us the value of being hospitable. The wildlife – Bush walking is pleasurable. There are no snakes, crocs, scorpions or deadly critters to look out for. The white tail and katipo spiders are apparently the worst, but I’ve not yet been up close and personal with these. The Kiwi is the national bird and it does not have wings because it never had any natural predators. The wine and food – you do not have to drive too far to get to a picturesque and exquisite winery. Award winning Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are most revered down under and there are plenty of clean, green organic wines to choose from too. Local produce is savoured. Local markets are often frequented and eating SLOW (seasonal, local, organic and whole) is a priority. Organic boutique businesses – New Zealand has a large number of entrepreneurs, committed to creating ethical, dynamic and organic businesses. ‘Twenty8 Essentials’ is a 100% pure organic essential oil and chemical free skincare company that focuses their whole ethos on selfcare and self-love.

his is a story about a man who came from a tiny group of islands called Hawai’i on the edge of a vast ocean we call the Pacific. His people lived in harmony with nature for thousands of years and like every other nature-based culture, had a deep familial connection to this planet. They moved in harmony with its cycles, husbanding the wealth of ocean

and land for the sustenance of future generations. Their relationship with nature was as a family member. It grew and evolved from awareness of its cycles, respect for its power to grow and destroy life and was the key to understanding their humanity. They personalised and deified nature with God names to better

understand and communicate with the forces that shaped and sustained their lives, extending even to the organs and internal motions of the body. Like nature, they had no religion, no concept of spirituality, right or wrong, good or bad, sin or redemption. Universal principles guided them – ‘if it contributes to our wellbeing, use it: if it doesn’t, change it.’

Like other nature-based cultures, there were those within the community who had a deeper than ordinary awareness of physical and metaphysical dimensions. With specialised training in innate awareness, they became experts of different professions by interpreting the voices of nature, the words of the Gods. In this culture of it was the Kahuna who interpreted these messages. My teacher Kahu Abraham Kawai’i was born into a family of Kahuna at a time of great change in the Hawai’ian islands. He was discouraged from associating with his Kahuna grandmother but after he returned from the Korean War, was influenced by a hunting experience to put down his gun and take up the cloak of his Kahuna ancestors and begin his training in innate awareness. He would tell the story of his several Kahuna teachers but it was his last who was most influential in guiding and encouraging him to develop and fulfil his natural understanding of the human body. In the 1960s he began to develop a style of bodywork we now call Kahuna Bodywork. It was a way of working with the body that brought breath back into its stagnant parts. He found pieces of forgotten ancient chants about temples that did a type of bodywork that brought a person

close to death to move them beyond what had been, into a higher sphere of understanding themselves as a human being… “From a girl to a woman, from a boy to a man, from one profession or rank to another.” It was a portal for evolution. This was the start of his life’s work. He became curious as to why white people couldn’t heal themselves, why they couldn’t move themselves beyond concepts that bound and restricted them by fear, so he travelled to the US mainland and spent the next 10 years trying to figure why and how he could translate his Kahuna training into a noncultural language so all could benefit. He called it Kahuna Sciences. His workshops were always about the individual, how to move beyond concepts – ‘take a breath and step across the line’. At the heart of his lessons was the principle of family. He started with the body, awakening awareness through motion. My personal experience with the time I spent with Kahu was developing awareness of how I moved and adjusting my motion to effortless ease, then sinking deeper into myself until I learnt the lesson of minding my own business, the business of my body. This gave me space emotionally, psychologically and physically and an

understanding that all of me, the good, bad and ugly is family, energetic wealth to be called upon at the appropriate time. Bodywork then was not something I did, but a performance of what was presented to me in the body on the table. Knowing what is mine and what is theirs, took me beyond intention into the impersonal realm of nature. For me, Kahuna Bodywork – Romi Kaparere and Romi ‘Oluli are portals for feeling, for remembering what it is to be human, a member of nature’s family, subject to its cycles and to align myself to the forces that shape my existence here on this planet. By riding upon the shoulders of his ancient Hawai’ian culture, Kahu showed us a way to find where we belong within our culture, continent, planet, solar system and universe. Sadly, Kahu passed out of this earthly life in 2004, but not before he left his mark. Kahuna Bodywork is well known all over the world. Many people teach a form of it according to their understanding, many massage colleges offer it as part of their curriculum and many people have had their lives changed from this one man and his life’s work. www.kahunamist.com

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Medical intuition:

Where two worlds meet

WORDS JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education

I

t’s funny you know, as a child I did not see a competition between science and spirituality, I just saw it all as one. It wasn’t until I was in secondary school and listened to adults, that I discovered there was a ‘battle’ between science and spirituality. As a nurse and having worked in pathology and autopsies, I quickly learnt the segregation between these two worlds. Something did not sit quite right in my heart. Today when I lecture about ‘body talks’ and Medical Intuition to universities, business groups and on cruise ships, I use the word METAPHYSICAL. Why? This brings the marriage of science and spirituality together. Meta – unseen, and physical – seen. They are one! Spirituality is everything and nothing. Everything is having a spiritual experience and in physical form. Calling us HU-MAN is the marriage of the two concepts as HU means light, and MAN in the physical form. Whilst in the pathology labs, I loved speaking with the scientists and getting their perspective on life and the universe. It was all based on FACT! But what is a

fact? A fact is an idea or awareness, then searching for answers and proof of that idea and then presenting the information over and over to show others ‘proof’. Do we call this science? Or is this life and perception? The meaning of science is, ‘a discipline, knowledge, skill and art of a particular subject’. In that case, everything is science and not science, as everything and all of life is an artform. From a child’s perspective, it is much simpler. Children know it is all art, and life is a game. They know they will learn knowledge and a skill and if they are interested in the subject, they can make it a career or hobby. The STAR child scientists may ‘study a discipline of computer gaming’ or what about the CRYSTAL child who ‘studies the discipline of dancing’ and what about the AQUA child who ‘studies a discipline of being a humanitarian’? Are they separate from their spiritual side? What if children knew in their hearts that all of science and spirituality are the same thing and life is about playing in love and blossoming and learning about themselves? What if there were schools

and hospitals that offered not only science and facts to people and children for their growth and well-being, but also anything and everything metaphysical. This may include: children counting with crystals or nurses offering crystal healing post operatively? That is my dream and the magic I love to teach and share in my current work as a Medical Intuitive lecturer. Science and spirituality are already here – we are just remembering this.

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Disarm your inner attacker WORDS RIKKA ZIMMERMAN

H

ave you ever been driving in your car with the radio turned up, joyfully singing at the top of your lungs, to suddenly have someone cut you off; then in that moment you went from pure joy to a reaction of anger and frustration? Or worse off, you love your partner, but hate when he asks you what time you’re going to be home. You might think, “Why, why does this bother me so much?! All he is doing is asking me when I’m going to be home and now I don’t want to come home at all!” Why did this instant reaction happen? Did you choose your reaction in that moment? Did you think, “Let’s see, out of all the choices I could make, I know, I would like to feel angry and frustrated in this moment.” Of course not. Then we must ask the question, “What is this energy that is running my life and seeming to be choosing for me?”

(and defender)

In Bruce Lipton’s book ‘The Biology of Belief’ he states… “The character of our lives is determined not by our genes, but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life. When our uniquely human minds get involved, we can choose to perceive the environment in different ways. Our choices are based on our beliefs.” Dr Lipton states, “I was exhilarated by the new realisation that I could change the character of my life by changing my beliefs… there was a science-based path that would take me from my job as perennial ‘victim’ to my new job as ‘co-creator’ of my destiny.” – p17, Lipton, B. (2005), The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles. Santa Rosa, CA: Elite Books. What if, what is happening, is that you are unconsciously programing your future moments of reactions based on how you have unsuccessfully processed the past and your current present

moment? The truth is, you have the ability to have no pre-programmed reaction to your environment. This means you get to choose how you would like to respond instead! The energetic wisdom of releasing your past so that you can fully live in the present moment, has been passed down throughout the ages. Of course, I would need more time with you for you to fully accomplish this in your life. However, this tool will get you started: Next time you automatically react, ask yourself, “Did I choose this automatic reaction? No!” Then inquire, “If I could choose anything here, what would I choose from my heart?” And make that choice. Just this one simple exercise will begin reprogramming your present and future out of automatic reaction and into what you choose from your heart. www.RikkaInAustralia.com

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Physics meeting metaphysics WORDS MICHAEL ROADS

O

ver my last 50 years I have spent a considerable amount of time travelling a metaphysical multiverse. I have long awaited the time when science and physics will converge with metaphysics. This is finally getting closer. I have had many metaphysical encounters with the torus of plants and animals. When I saw a three-dimensional model of a torus on the ‘Thrive’ documentary movie, I was excited. Physics had moved a step closer… for me, anyway! Many readers of this magazine will be aware of the Masters of the Seven Rays. I learned long ago that my spiritual mentor was Hilarion – Master of the Fifth Ray. This was the ray of the intellect, science, and physics. I resisted, for I was not an intellectual and I knew nothing of physics or science. The time came, however, when the energy of ‘all’ the rays changed. Whether this was generally known, I

have no idea. But the change was a revelation for me. Hilarion was now the Master of intelligence, meta-science and metaphysics. When he told me about this, I stopped resisting. I love conscious intelligence. There is no subconscious variety! I was also thrilled by the implications of meta-science, and of course, metaphysics was my big love in life. A higher consciousness is the key for those scientists who step from stagnant knowledge into the rare atmosphere of direct knowing. George Washington Carver had this unique quality. At the end of a long and highly distinguished career as a botanist, scientist and teacher, his students took it upon themselves to care for this great man. One afternoon, Carver had spent hours sitting in a chair staring intently at a certain flower. Eventually his current student carer came to him saying, “Sir, it is getting cold and you could catch a

chill. You should come indoors now, sir.” The old man nodded absently, and the student withdrew. An hour later the student returned. “Sir, I must insist that you now come in from the cold.” He paused. “Sir, you have spent all afternoon staring at a flower. How can you do this for so long without getting bored?” From his chair, George Washington Carver smiled up at the student. “Well son, the difference is that you see a flower. I see the universe.” This is where science meets metaphysics. It was many years before I, too, found the universe in a flower. I can only hope that this consciousness is now entering the energy of all humanity. As Einstein’s famous quote states, “All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.” This defines conscious living within the natural laws of the universe. www.michaelroads.com.au

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Leading the way in

clinical aromatherapy...

WORDS DEBY ATTERBY

U

nderstanding clinical aromatherapy is the missing link of the Australian Natural Therapies health industry. It it is not just about the nice aroma of an essential oil in a local market place, it is about the amazing qualities and abilities for maintaining health care. Today, sadly, many of our pharmaceutical drugs are unable to combat micro-organisms that mutate within seconds of a breath. Clinical aromatherapy is about the use of essential oils and how they can fight micro-organism growth, bringing with it, a healthier way of caring for clients and families in your practice or home environment. Aromatic medicine, also known as scientific aromatherapy, medical aromatherapy or aromatology, refers primarily to the use of essential oils administered via a range of clinical applications. These may include topical and oral ingestion, with high grade and specific essential oils being used by highly-qualified practitioners.

It is from this medical application of essential oils that the term ‘aromatic medicine’ was derived. This medical model includes internal applications, by ingestion, topically (undiluted), rectally and vaginally. Much of Western Europe incorporates aromatherapy into mainstream medicine as an antiseptic, antiviral, antifungal and/ or antibacterial agent, more than other parts of the world, yet Aminya studies can allow you to reach that level of expertise. I continue to travel overseas to investigate the latest modalities of aromatic medicine and bring it back to Australia to maintain the highest level of training possible. Completing a clinical aromatherapy course, prepares the student to identify essential oil therapeutic uses and potential essential oil-drug interactions. Introducing aromatherapy principles to pharmacology will harness a new generation of healthcare professionals in the role of alternative complementary medicines. At this stage, Aminya Natural Therapies Academy is the only Government Registered Training Organisation in Australia, that offers

and delivers Diploma of Clinical Aromatherapy, and Skillset in Aromatic Medicine, alongside other popular natural therapy modalities. Our trainers are of the highest standard with many years’ experience. Most students commencing the Diploma of Clinical Aromatherapy course, are unaware of the many benefits that essential oils provide. Some have had experience and want to know more, others are just starting on their journey with no idea what to expect. After working through the basics, history, and then finally learning about the plants themselves, students learn blending, product making, and practical application through many hours of practice, including clinic orientation and dispensary. Students are full of elation and excitement, eager to attend classes, delving deeper into the fascinating field of clinical aromatherapy. It is such an exciting period of growth for aromatic medicine in Australia. www.aminyaacademy.com.au

COVER STORY

Science and Spirituality Co-operating for our New World WORDS RAELENE BYRNE

W

hat would it take, for a person with an influential safe career in the lucrative field of science and the corporate world, to choose to walk away from a solid career path, to choose a new frontier of spirituality, to follow their own inner soul compass? Once the question, based on an old paradigm, “What can I get from the world?”, changes to “what can I contribute or share in the world?” enters into your awareness, there is only one option, CHANGE of life. It takes an enormous mission of desiring betterment for our planet and humanity. It takes a conviction arising from compassion, to bring awareness, information, research, scientific data and new discoveries to the seekers of change around the world. It takes courage, transparency, wisdom, enthusiasm, and a constant thirst for wanting to share all the scientific data that has been hidden from the masses. Meet Gregg Braden, a man with generosity of spirit, a scientist travelling, teaching and sharing with the world, information to bridge the polarity between spirituality and science-based evidence and protocols. Gregg is the celebrated author of 12 books which are in 40 languages, five are on the New York Times bestseller list. Gregg’s career before his choice to do something else, had him working for Fortune 500 companies, as a problem solver during times of crisis, which he still offers today through weaving science and spiritual-based teachings together. He is a 2018 nominee for the prestigious Templeton Award, to honour ‘outstanding individuals who have devoted their talents to expanding our vision of human purpose and ultimate reality’. The United Kingdom’s Watkins Journal lists Gregg among the top 100 of ‘the world’s most spiritually influential living people’ for the fifth consecutive year.

There is a wealth of knowledge, connections, wisdom, and experiences that Gregg offers with fabulous stories, humour, scientific evidence and up to date research, which leaves you wanting more. You are swept into a vortex of deep knowing when he speaks. When asked if science and spirituality can hold hands in these current times, Gregg answered, “science is the contemporary language of spirituality”. What does this mean? Science hasn’t related to the language of spirituality in the past. However, when you start speaking about energy, quantum fields, physics, electrical fields, cells interacting with the field, NOW you have the attention from the science world, now you are speaking a language that can be understood. The language of science has no religious charge to it, so mainstream populations are more accepting of the concepts and evidence to support spiritual teachings and ancient wisdoms. Over the last few years, thanks to scientists like Gregg Braden, spiritual language has been expanding to use terminologies of vibration, frequency and energy fields which make the ideas of change easier to accept in the mainstream population. Gregg explains even though science and spirituality seem mutually exclusive, the principles that science is now discovering with advancing technology, are paralleling ancient traditions, knowledge, and wisdom. Gregg states, “This is where the path of change will be”. As Gregg said, we have a small window of time where change can be received and accepted, and we are in that space right now. As a convergence of extreme conditions is upon us, the breakdown in economies and debt, climate change, religious issues, political upheavals, population growth, we are required to develop a personal heart resilience to move through these unprecedented changes so we can flourish and thrive. The world witnessed the ‘attack’ on the World Trade Centre in New

York on September 11, 2001. It was a global ‘wake up’, and signal for massive change; the end of the old and the transformation into a new way of being on all levels. For a couple of generations, that event was the closest experience to a war-like scenario. I asked Gregg about the world events over the last century that seem to take us away from any spiritual progress, or collective awareness, the way humanity repeats the patterns of struggle, conflict, even war, where we often want to give up, and wonder if anything really does or can change. Gregg spoke of the tremendous spiritual revolution that was sweeping the earth in the late 1800s where science was moving towards an understanding of the deep connectivity of all of life, a path of spirituality. People and science were beginning to think in a united and co-operative way until World War I happened, closely followed by WWII, then the longest undeclared war that lasted 44 years, known as the Cold War. The ‘connected’ way of thinking gave way to a war-like mentality. As we were emerging from that, 9/11 occurred and the beginning of the ‘war on terrorism’, another polarity of us against them. You need to ask… what if these ‘obstacles’ were indeed parts of the spiritual pathway, what if these events are pushing humanity to see the futility of what is happening and start to take responsibility in our personal lives for change to happen. The technology and scientific advancements that were birthed during the cold war have given rise to where we are now in our spiritual and evolutionary pathway. Humanity, is being forced onto a path, that challenges the old ideas, as they no longer serve us. The events of the world are pushing us to think of ourselves and the relationship to the world differently. Climate, economy, conflict and disease are changing… how we previously solved these issues is NOT working so what if all of these are pushing humankind towards new ways www.holisticblissmagazine.com

of thinking and perceiving our world… that is the evolutionary process. Gregg shared this powerful wisdom, “the great challenges of life appear to us when, and only when, we have everything we need to survive and heal from the experience”. Such an empowering statement. And worth embodying. Recently I attended ‘The Cell to Soul’ retreat in Gregg’s home state of New Mexico. It was four days of WOW. Science, spirituality, experiences that opened you up, the depth of heart connection through some of the processes, and the understandings of our true human potential. When Gregg shares his personal stories, and experiences at his events, you feel his genuine warmth, humour, enthusiasm for life, respect and gratitude for all he has lived through. You feel like you are cared for as a member of his family. I attended a conference on 9/11 to hear Gregg Braden speak, unsure if he would show up, given the tragic events in his country that day. It was the first time I felt the collective energy of compassion and respect directed towards one person. A whole room of strangers held a powerful space for Gregg, and we palpably felt the energy of that intention. This collective feeling is part of the process Gregg offers through many of his books, retreats, conferences, courses, and journeys to sacred places. The ‘heart brain coherence’ process allows each person the ability to shift their energetic field towards more care, appreciation, gratitude, and compassion with a deep connection to your heart. Without knowing it at the time, that is what we all experienced on that 9/11 evening. This simple heart brain process allows us to access deep intuition, to shift our energy, to gain an answer from our heart, something that science and technology can now monitor, even with an app!!! (that cracks me up), but for eons, the ancients have known about it and called us to that simple practice. Science has proven there are 40,000 neurons, brain-like cells, in our heart organ, giving us access to another level of intelligence within. This is what we are called to connect with. Gregg has a long affiliation and relationship with ‘The HeartMath

21.indd 1

Institute’ and offers their technology for all to experience. Accessing the heartbrain coherence, a spiritual practice, but measured with science-based technology, is such a fabulous way to actively create a better way of being. Science and spirituality holding hands!!! Gregg so eloquently stated, the better we know ourselves the less fear we have in the world, the less fear we have with others, the less fear we have about ourselves. People tend to have preconceived ideas of spirituality and its pathway which fall apart when issues, challenges, obstacles keep showing up. What if that is the spiritual path, being able to learn, deal, cope, change what we are experiencing, by knowing the self. Knowing ourselves is a keystone in life, not just from a spiritual perspective, but science is trying to understand who we are, where we have come from, and our origins. While technology advances to find these answers, and more questions arise, we are met with evidence that is NOT supporting the theories we have been fed, in fact, it is time for new stories which is the underlying theme of Gregg’s new book, ‘Human by Design’. The spiritual path, is deep, intimate, where we access personal responsibility and sometimes it’s a difficult one to walk, but what if that is the spiritual growth we need. So how is the world doing now? Gregg is encouraged by what he sees happening on a global scale. We have chosen a

difficult path to get to the end, but what is happening behind the scenes, and the information that is not public yet, offers hope and the timing is perfect. We are being forced onto a path of thinking that challenges the old ideas. Fifty years ago, there was no openness for new ideas, as we were still based in conflict struggle, competition and scarcity. These current times we have a willingness and receptivity for new ideas as we move closer to connectivity, co-operation, sharing and what biologists call ‘mutual-aid’. Transformation is change by choice and action… welcome the new human potential. www.greggbraden.com

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Breast care:

Tools to empower!

WORDS REVIVAL CLINIC

I

t’s sad to say, but we all know someone who is going through or has gone through the fear and challenging journey of breast disease. It’s been over 30 years since going through my own health challenges. Back then I was offered only bandaid solutions, some of which, when I think about it now, were unbelievably insane. To have any chance of getting better, I realised I had to become more proactive with my health. It was a long but positive journey that changed my life and ultimately led to my partner and I setting up our own wellness clinic in Sydney. After moving our clinic to Noosa in 2003, I began thinking more and more about breast health and what options were out there to help monitor change. I knew that inflammation was a precursor to pretty much all chronic degenerative diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, but the question was, how do we know if we have this inflammation and how can we measure it?

Then bingo… my prayers were answered! A Sydney colleague contacted me about a new technology she was using in her clinic called Thermography. She said it specifically measured inflammation in the body by taking non-invasive heat sensitive photographs. I felt so empowered from my very first scan! A doctor analyses your images and sends back a full report including your unique temperature data. I could now watch for stability and symmetry over time and be alerted to any physiological changes. I was so passionate about giving others the opportunity that I had, that in 2006 we invested in the technology for our clients. As well as focusing on the breast, we also do full body scans for men and women of all ages. I have since learned a great deal about how we can improve our breast health, including simple things like avoiding aluminium deodorants and underwire bras. How about your diet – are you eating too much sugar? Are you getting enough Vitamin D and taking

good antioxidants? Are you adrenally exhausted? Do you have dense breast tissue or sore or lumpy breasts? Are your hormones out of kilter? We live in a beautiful environment, yet we are still being bombarded by toxins like pesticides, herbicides and plastics which hugely impact our livers and hormones. Regular detoxification is extremely important! Our clients enjoy time out in our far infrared detox sauna – it’s also a great place to de-stress. It is so rewarding working with clients who are taking responsibility for their own health rather than have a ‘wait and see’ attitude. Their annual scan sometimes gives them a bit of a wake-up call to get their health back on track. I know it does for me! Email: debc@revival.net.au www.revivalclinic.com.au

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Sex and consciousness WORDS JANET McGEEVER

I

n the 80s, if you were in business, you just had faxes and landline phones. That was it! We didn’t have emails, internet, mobile phones, Facebook, Instagram and the rest. Having all these amazing avenues of communication have added to our ease of life in one sense but has actually added to the never-ending stress of life in another. They have been absorbed into our modern-day psyche often without us even questioning their effect on our nervous system. We become mechanical, automatic and disconnected. And super stressed. And taking us more and more away from the one thing that sustains our hearts – conscious loving relationships. Love grows through sensitivity, awareness, clarity and insight. When we are mechanical in life, we lose this awareness and sensitivity and it’s so easy to become unconscious of ourselves and of others. The same can be true for making love. When we become mechanical and relatively unconscious in the very

act of making love, we lose sensitivity to ourselves, to another, to our very bodies, and our hearts. It becomes an obligatory, finite act. The more conscious we are in every aspect of life, including lovemaking, the more likely we are to be more in touch with ourselves and therefore our own love. Making love in awareness means letting go of the conventional style of mechanical sex and bringing attention to the moment-by-moment experience. As your level of consciousness in lovemaking grows, you transform the basic sex energy into its higher vibration of love. But this transformation can only happen through direct experience. All movements become slower, more sensitive. You are naturally engaged in the unfolding present, creating the opportunity to feel and follow the wisdom and intelligence that naturally resides in your body. Any movement, any nuance, done consciously means you continually feel yourself more and more – it changes

the quality of loving dramatically. Let there be flow, without forcing anything – allow ease, innocence, playfulness and a spontaneous unfolding. Be alert, in awareness, as you approach each other, as you embrace, as you kiss and move or change position. You are not slowing down as a rule – it is simply an outcome of being conscious. And with the epidemic of stress in our lives these days, conscious lovemaking leading to slow and sensitive, means you are engaging the parasympathetic nervous system – the rest and digest response. This means that the bio-magnetic energy within the body can recirculate, having a stilling, peaceful regenerative effect on our systems. The perfect antidote to the distractions of modern day life.

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

How can WORDS SPIRI BUHAGIAR

T

here can be many interpretations on the subject of science meets consciousness. For me, as a Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) practitioner and a hypnotherapist, my understanding is based on the work of one of the new world scientists and creator of neuro-science, Bruce Lipton. Science in consciousness is an explanation of how the mind works and differentiates between the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. Neuro-science, neuro plasticity and epigenetics are now the leading sciences in ‘The Mind’. Philosophers of the past understood that there were two entities that made up the mind of humans and which separated us from other animals on the planet and that was our conscious mind and our unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is the

Rapid Transformational Therapy assist you? keeper of your emotions and memories and is also the part of you that keeps your body functioning. Science believes that we operate through our unconscious mind 95% of our time. Dr Bruce Lipton who was a teacher of medical students states that “your thoughts and your perception have a direct and overwhelmingly significant effect on your cells of which there are 50 trillion in your body!” What this means is that your mind will adjust the body’s biology and behaviour to fit with your beliefs. Many of us hold limiting beliefs that we are not even consciously aware of. These limiting beliefs can keep weight on our body, keep us in depression and much more. Beliefs become habits and then habits become you! Dr Lipton believes the key to good

health, both physically and mentally, comes down to the sub-conscious mind which contains our deepest beliefs. This means if you want to change habits, which become beliefs, you need to access your subconscious mind to re-wire it with new beneficial beliefs that serve your best interests. The good news is the RTT uses the best of neuro-science, neuro-plasticity and hypnotherapy to re-wire your brain to new beneficial beliefs. If you are suffering from an emotion issue, have a habit you want to change or want to re-wire your mind for success, please contact me – I can help you when you are ready to commit to being the best version of you.

When the heart, body and mind are aligned

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

WORDS GENE THOMPSON

I

t was about 25 years ago when I was with a Qigong Master that I began taking meditation seriously. I would sit in meditation for three hours at a time. The effects were quite profound. I managed my business with less stress and my chronic fatigue became nonexistent. When strong emotional situations arose in my life, I would bring those experiences to my meditation and watch the intensity of the emotional pain gradually drop away. It was like I had been given a miracle that slowly and consistently transformed my life. In 2002 due to my fascination for biofeedback, I discovered the Institute of ‘HeartMath’ and their biofeedback program now known as emWave Pro, and the book, ‘The HeartMath Solution’ by Doc Childre. Yes, I had received a miracle, and now I have the scientific research of ‘HeartMath’ to explain the source of the miracle. The miracle is the heart, and the love and wisdom accessed in and through the heart. To quote from the ‘The HeartMath Solution’: “The heart has a significant

influence on the function of the brain, and all our bodily systems, and it sends more information to the brain, than the brain sends to the heart. “When the brainwaves entrain with the heart rhythms, we experience a heightened intuitive clarity and a greater sense of well-being. This state of head/ heart entrainment occurs precisely when the heart rhythms complete one cycle every 10 seconds, 1hz.” Breathing naturally – in for five seconds – out for five seconds, invites and supports brain and heart entrainment, leading to a state of coherence, where every system in the body is aligned. Coherent people thrive mentally, emotionally, and physically. They have the power to adapt, to innovate. As a result, they experience little stress, meaning they spend less energy maintaining good health. Stress is the enemy creating an incoherent internal state, pitting the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems against each other, which affects how we think and feel.

Consequently, incoherence diminishes our capacity to perform, and to live a quality life, and it impacts our health negatively. Learning the value of coherence is crucial because it provides sound reasoning for living a life directed by the heart. What has been shown conclusively by ‘HeartMath’ research is that several people in a state of coherence will positively affect the mental and emotional well-being of others involved in an area of similar interest. As the owner of an engineering manufacturing company with 250 employees I have seen clear evidence of this phenomenon. Sitting for three hours meditating has provided some of the most profound experiences of my life. And, it is good to know that I can access the healing power and the wisdom of the heart within minutes.

What is the

Labyrinth of Light?

WORDS RAELENE BYRNE

I

t is a deeply magical experience that takes you into your centre of wisdom, awareness and the unique vibration that you are; the part of you that is not replicated anywhere else in the universe. The inspiration has come from my love of labyrinths, candles, fire and transformational processes. People are often confused about what differentiates a labyrinth and a maze. Mazes have high walls, dead ends, and engage you in a thinking process to find your way to the centre point, and then you navigate your way out. It can be exhausting! Labyrinths are low to the ground, with a pathway that keeps you moving forward, towards the centre, which you can observe at all times, no backtracking, no second-guessing, a flow of movement which can be meditative. It represents the way of life. We have our steady, still centre, yet we can ‘seem’ to lose our way, finding ourselves off course from where our true self exists. This happens in the labyrinth

experience, you can be a long way from the centre, but you know the path will take you back to centre, returning you to the place to remember, and reignite your connection to you. When we have experiences these days, we create new reference points, we feel things, make choices, perhaps are inspired, we get closer to opening more into our true selves. ‘Labyrinth of Light’ was created to be a celebration, ceremony, ritual, meditation and healing, woven together to offer a new ‘reference point of self’ for each person who walks it. Utilising the fire element, which purifies, clears and releases, we also recognise the flame within each of our own souls; the very essence of who and why we are here. Each of the 400 candles has an intention, prayer and blessing which grows with added intention and presence. I have created a special heartshaped ‘Labyrinth of Light’ for smaller

gatherings which guide each person into their heart, to listen, to remember. Stepping over the threshold of the ‘Labyrinth of Light’ walk takes courage. You are consciously leaving aspects not serving or supporting you behind, as you walk towards your truth, your essence. Once in the heart of the labyrinth, there is a moment of ‘remembering’ which is profound for most people. A place to set your intention, open to deep gratitude, align with your new frequency and receive the next level of you in this world. You FEEL it deeply within. As you walk away from the centre towards the still, following the path that keeps you moving forward, there is a lightness, a renewed sense of purpose, a willingness to be more of self, as well as the contribution to the greater community. Next ‘Labyrinth of Light’ is 11.11.2018 in Maroochydore, Queensland, Australia! www.raelenebyrne.com

“If it’s meant to be,

it’s up to me”

WORDS KIRA STEINHAUS

T

here is something truly amazing about each and every personality. They can be so varied, however, all framed up, very much the same. It all comes down to what someone is consciously focussing their mind on. Being in the industry of personal development, I read, watch and hear so many versions of this same principle day in, day out. What you think about, you bring about. And I credit so many amazing leaders in this beautiful world we live in, who have taught me this amazing way of thinking. It really does create one’s physical reality. I am blessed for so many reasons, at the top of the list would of course be, the blessing of motherhood. For me, this started three years ago, with the birth of my first little boy. He completely changed my perspective on life and

then my second little boy came a year and a half later! What a whirlwind, juggling parenthood and business, however state of mind is what has gotten me continually breaking through barriers. There is no limit to what someone can achieve. “The only limits are those we impose upon ourselves.” – Bob Proctor. I am so forever grateful to have found such a positive influence and a business with founders who are dedicating their lives to providing a platform for others to succeed – one which provides the constant support in uplifting ways and reminding each person involved in their own capabilities and power. In today’s society, we have almost too many options and ways to succeed. So, why are there so many people yet to achieve what they set out to do? It all

comes down to their level of conscious awareness. Things that have assisted me in this area are listening to podcasts and audio books, these are great to listen to on the road or even at the park, watching the kids play. Make time for yourself to incorporate your new best friend – ‘personal development’! It continues to improve my life, my state of mind and reminds me of how great I really am. I want to share a particular podcast to help you see how you ‘frame up’ this thing called life. Is your life working for you?

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Cannabis science

meets plant consciousness

WORDS MELANIE LEONTINE

I

often have people ask me if marijuana is the same as cannabis? No matter what you call it: marijuana, hemp, cannabis, dagga, ganja, weed, pot… you are talking about the same plant species, cannabis. I prefer to use the term cannabis as it is the correct name for the plant. Here is another question I am asked often: “Is the cannabis plant spiritual or does the spiritual aspect only come from smoking the plant?” Without a doubt the cannabis plant has its own consciousness as do all living things on Mother Earth. Most cannabis growers dispose of the male plants as the female cannabis plants grow the higher THC healing medicinal flowers people desire. However, many intuitive cannabis growers have come to realise how the conscious relationship between the male and female cannabis plants are important and even essential for the females’ growth and general health. Botanical flirtation is most apparent with the female cannabis plant, as she will grow bigger, more

luscious flowers when she has her male counterpart nearby. She has a will to display all her feminine divinity to her green man and show just how gorgeous, alive, developed and fertile she is. Her dance is one of pure natural beauty. Conscious cannabis growers now keep the male plants nearby, trimmed back neat and tidy with just stalks and leaves present and witness the female flourish like never seen before, with ‘conventional’ growing methods. The cannabis leaf displays seven leaflets which is also the sacred number of the Bible. In 1616 a book was published called the ‘The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreuz’ – the writings describe a romance story divided into seven days, or seven journeys, like Genesis, and recounts how Christian Rosenkreuz was invited to go to a wonderful castle full of miracles, in order to assist the Chymical Wedding of the King and the Queen. The Alchemical union of the husband and bride – the sacred marriage, is just like the sacred plant.

In so many ways, the cannabis plant is steeped in history, mystery and spirituality, but most of all, it is the greatest healing plant on the planet! “Dagga has great potential not only for industrial applications, but within the right cultural context and when approached with a constructive mind set, it can also provide a doorway to one’s own mental and spiritual development.” – Jeremy Acton See your country’s legal policies for more information.

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

The universal: Transcending

the human body and mind

WORDS DOUGLAS COLSTON

T

he message that all of us have an innate capacity to tap into consciousness beyond the bounds of the physical human body and mind has appeared repeatedly in key philosophical and theological texts throughout recorded history. The concept is also being explored and supported by advanced research involving quantum physics. So too, it is reported by those who have survived Near Death Experiences (NDEs). One of the most thought-provoking reports of transcendent consciousness reported in the NDE literature, is that of a woman who experienced a medical emergency in a hospital during which she experienced an NDE. Upon being resuscitated, the woman reported that she had felt her consciousness separate from her body and ‘float’ near the ceiling of the room where staff were working to revive her. From the vantage point, she reported that she ‘saw’ what was going on. She was able to accurately describe procedures that had been performed on her, staff that had been present, and even saw the

treating doctor have a pen drop from his pocket, which was later picked up by a nurse and put in a drawer in the cabinet adjacent to the hospital bed. These events are remarkable, in and of themselves, but what makes the report more remarkable is that this woman had been blind from birth! The ‘universal field’ of consciousness that seems to be available to us, too, involves both unified and individuated features. Many who have explored deep meditative states report a visceral sensation of individual consciousness separating from the body, and connecting with an expansive, timeless unified field of thought. Some psychics, of course, claim to be able to connect with the individuated consciousness of those who have left the physical bodies. Some people, too, report similar personal experiences happening in moments of altered mental states – including severe grief. Sessions involving Past and Between Life Regression also provide the opportunity to explore consciousness

in a variety of ways. Clients typically experience transcendent recall from their own lives (for example, connection with memories from the womb and the capacity to perceive the thoughts of their mother), recall of other physical lives (including emotions, images and conversations), the release and survival of the individuated soul following the death of the physical body, reconnection and unification with a form of source energy and existence in an astral, spirit or heavenly realm. This process allows the first-hand experience of a shift in consciousness, which is far more convincing and potent than merely reading about some other person’s experience. It also results in a transformative connection with ‘higher’ aspects of the self that can be helpful in the resolution of recurring current life issues and weathering the ebb and flow of everyday life.

Why transform your

unconsciousness into consciousness?

WORDS JULES O’NEILL

W

e all know that our unconscious represents much more of us than our conscious; that the consciouffs is just the tip of the being we truly are. My point of view is that we are much more than we know – a Star Being in a human body within a 3D reality. We have a ‘higher self’ way in the background that could potentially run

the show, if we truly listen, directing us to shine a gentle light on the unconscious. When we shine the gentle light of awareness into the unconscious, we begin to see that ‘life’ drives us to spiritually expand into our Star Being body. Why? I believe our Star Being body naturally feels fun, love, warmth, lightness, gratitude, excited and creative. We know that spontaneity, adventures

Depression, Trauma and Stress can end today!

and possibilities are available, so we continually enjoy being alive in a body on a magical planet. We can manifest whatever we choose with ease and joy. Connections with other star beings are everywhere and show up just when we need them. There is no ‘wanting’ and a natural feeling of fulfilment – from the inside. We default to ‘love’ no matter what is happening and

know things are working out for us, as well as for the others we love. We discover that we are directed to repeatedly break out of our negative stories, our societal conditioning, our limiting beliefs, etc. We learn our emotions are an internal GPS letting us know if we are following the journey of heart versus conditioned programs. Emotional stress is when our hearts are saying go in this direction, and our limiting beliefs and conditionings are saying the opposite. This creates an internal conundrum. It cannot be ignored, it is never anyone else’s fault, and it doesn’t need ‘fixing’. It needs you to become aware of what is going on in your unconscious. Then, from that point, you can make new choices and create new results. You grow stronger, learn not to be a slave to your emotions, and follow the breadcrumb journey of the heart. If you don’t let judgements, rules, other people or fears stop you, it’s fun to do this. Even when it’s uncomfortable, it can be fun from a different point of view. Each step of the way you are transforming into your Star Being YOU! There are many ways to understand your unconscious and shine a soft light on it. One of the fastest ways is right in front of you – all the time! Your birth family, present family and the people you love. Each one of these

people, at different times, represents a part of your unconscious. A different part of you, a different self. It could be your physical self, your financial self, your home self, your past self, your future self, etc. All these parts of you are attempting to come together, to create the wholeness of you and the oneness of all. From this point of view, home, family, and friends offer so much more. More than you can imagine! They are the best souls to move you into the Star Being you. What do I mean? Let’s start exploring your birth family, etc, and the stories you have about them. This technique will work whether they are alive or have passed. Let’s imagine you have continual health issues. You have tried many things to fix that shoulder, lose that weight, stop that headache, adjust that hip or ease your gut. You know deep down that any physical issue is an unresolved emotional issue. You also know that the accurate awareness can entirely shift anything and it not be a problem anymore. A Star Being knows this, a Human Being may doubt this. Consider asking this question or selfmuscle test, “Which family member can assist me with my physical self?” If your mum comes up, what story do you still say about her? It could be one of these; my mum always complains, my mum

never listens, my mum always criticises, etc. Most likely, you have said it all your life, and it feels normal and familiar. When you find the story, change the word mum to physical-self and change the story. In this example, your mum represents a part of your unconscious – your physical-self part. When you change the story, you will change your unconscious story about your physicalself. What about if you have always struggled with money. Never enough, still spending more than you earn, thinking you are always struggling financially, etc. Ask the same question or self-muscle test, “Which family member or friend can assist me with my financial self?” Say if your sibling (a sister) comes up. What ‘life’ story do you have about her? It could be that she is unstable, never asks for help, is rude, etc. Change the word ‘sister’ to your financial self, and change the story. For example, my sister (financial-self) is stable. My sister (financial-self) asks for help. My sister (financial-self) is friendly. Don’t worry about the outcome. Trust in the process.

ne of my greatest passions is working with the ancestors. Over the years connecting with, understanding and healing with my own ancestors, has brought about the biggest transformations in myself and my life. Time and time again in my intuitive sessions and workshops, the client’s loved ones would come through, not to

just bring messages of their survival after death, but to encourage them to heal negative family patterns that they were carrying. The study of epigenetics is starting to prove what shamans and energy healers have known for a long time – that we can inherit the emotional characteristics, traumas, emotions and the behavioural

DNA, we also can inherit the emotions – pain and trauma of our ancestors. These emotions, coping mechanisms, thoughts, feelings, beliefs and fears, can be coded in our DNA – recycling through many generations in our bloodline. This formally known ‘junk DNA’ is now known as the study of epigenetics. Who are your ancestors? We all come from a long line of people who came before us – ancestors that you may know and many that you don’t know or haven’t even heard of. They lived on this earth just like you – although in a different time and often place – but experienced the pains and joys of living in this reality. If you track back through certain lineages you will see that you have the same propensity to deal with, react and manage challenges just like they did. In my work helping others in Healing with the Ancestors®, I often find the ancestors guiding me back through many generations through my client’s lineage to the root cause or disruption to love – back to the start of where and why the pattern started and what trauma that was connected to. War has had one of the deepest impacts on many families, along with the early death of parents, losing a child, having to leave homelands, poverty and starvation, to losing love, being cheated on, or terrible illness and other traumatic experiences. This then

affects the ability of love to be freely given from one generation to the next, as the trauma begins to take effect in the family. It then falls like dominos, moving down the line from one generation to the next, and now, it sits with you. The benefits of ancestral healing Most of the time we tend to repeat patterns and compulsive behaviours, without full awareness. If you have done a lot of personal work through therapy, healers, coaches etc, and still find that you have blocks or repeating patterns, I would thoroughly recommend you do work with your ancestors. For many people this is the missing key in their healing work. Working with your ancestors helps both you, your ancestors and future generations by helping you to recover your personal power and increase your vital energy. It allows you all to transcend through guilt, pain and fear and heal addictions, traumas, old agreements/ contracts/vows and promises. The beauty behind an ancestral clearing is that once these energies, contracts, fears, phobias etc are confronted, validated, cleared and healed, you are not only doing this healing for yourself – but for seven generations behind you (and sometimes beyond) and seven generations in front of you. This healing is multi-directional and nonlinear – meaning that it will help

not only the one that is conducting the clearing, but all the souls that have been involved through generational time to this chain of emotions and beliefs. The healing will travel mainly through the roots and body of the ‘family tree’ but will also eventually reach the branches and young fruits of the tree, involving and including brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles and aunts along with future generations. You are their legacy and they want the best for you, despite what they may have been like in their physical earth form. Their evolution continues on the other side and is reliant on us, as much as our evolution on earth is reliant on their healing too. We are all very much connected and through various spiritual practices and awareness, you can work on this with them together, transcending family karmic patterns.

Practical magic – a people-first

approach to pathology

WORDS ANDREA HOLLAND, Speech Pathologist and Orofacial Myology Specialist

T

he allied health industry teaches evidence-based research and scientific understanding of how human beings develop. It is enlightening, useful and constantly evolving. As a speech pathologist in private practice and a caseload of more than 80% children, I also recognise that science will only get you so far in the clinic room! There is an essential practical element of working with people beyond the mechanics of treatment. In the old days of my profession it was called ‘building rapport’. Rapport is the magic connection you establish when you are willing to see another person for who they are, beyond labels, diagnosis or prejudice. It is more than making a client like you enough to do what you want. When authentically undertaken, rapport allows you to learn from others in ways that influence and guide your pathology (the science of cause and effect of a disorder) for the greater. Building rapport is actually a

universally applicable skill. Here are four easy ways to build rapport with clients (or in any kind of relationship!): 1. Trust you first and foremost. You may have expectations of how you should be as a representative of your profession. Allow your professional knowledge to inform and support you, but trust you, and be yourself! 2. Give space and a fresh start. No client has ever come into my clinic with the same mood, level of energy, capability or focus as they did previously. My approach is: “Hello! What’s up today and what can we have fun with?” This opens the door for creating a connection, no matter what is going on for them or me. 3. Be interested and curious. Ask your clients questions and create situations to discover what they know, what they enjoy, and what unique capacities they have. Your professional skills are tools. How you apply them must fit their personality and demonstrate your interest in their way of seeing the world. Your active curiosity

about them will give you invaluable information. 4. Don’t fixate on results. Embrace unpredictability. If you don’t judge what should show up and when, you will be constantly surprised and have much more fun! I have many clients who do not demonstrate a skill I am trying to get them to develop in a session, but a few days later at home, the skill starts being used. What you input will bear fruit, but it rarely shows up in a scientifically predictable way. You, in concert with your client, lead the change, with your knowledge and expertise as your toolkit. There truly is no such thing as a ‘text-book’ case or one-size-fits-all way to apply what you know – and that is often the most exciting part of the job!

She specialises in individualised treatment of speech, language, communication and learning development disorders. www.andreaspeechpathology.com email: AndreaSpeech@bigpond.com

SCIENCE MEETS CONSCIOUSNESS

Our relationships WORDS AMANDA MACKAY

contain healing gems

T

here were so many ideas going through my head for this article, I’ve had some lovely, deep, honest communications lately with dear friends. The common theme was how our healing shows up in life, interactions, conversations and encounters with others light the path in different ways, and if we keep ignoring it, the hints can become louder and unavoidable. Often people don’t consciously move away from healing, the subconscious does it for us, we get caught up in being busy, involved in others’ dramas, watching TV and finding dozens of distractions. It’s especially challenging knowing you need to step back and allow a near loved one to face themselves in a demanding or testing situation, without disappearing or withdrawing love and support but giving them the space to create change, growth, independence and clear conscious decision making.

We risk a lot in that don’t we? What if we’re punished? They may disengage, say unflattering remarks about us, yell, vow never to speak to us again and yet they may slowly realise the gift, after the pain, anger, indignity, resentment and outraged emotions subside. If you have or are now in a situation similar to this, remember it’s your healing, spiritual development and expansion that is occurring now too. Breaking relationship patterns may be painful, demanding, confusing and upsetting, usually they have been playing out in some form or another our whole lives, learnt as young ones at home, which sometimes makes them awkward to spot, they are as natural as breathing. I’ve seen relationships transform through balancing inherited emotions, pain from generations ago stay in our biofield (aura), which is why you may react to a situation or person in a way that seems incongruent to your nature

– they’re passed down, it’s not your emotion! Sadness, grief, loss and abandonment are the common emotions sitting with us that cause resistance to change along with the fear of retribution for speaking up, humans need contact, connection and community. Start small, say no thank you in situations where you may usually say yes out of habit with people you probably will never see again. When I was younger, much shyer, my selfesteem was not so flash to practise this. I always said no to free sample giveaways, it was a safe space to gain a sense of empowerment. Now I’m quite comfortable in voicing my opinion so much so that I don’t always feel the need, knowing who I am feels good, so does being open to more healing and lightness. www.amandamackay.com.au

How I found my WORDS KATE M FOSTER

F

amily constellations and systemic work saved my life. As a survivor of sexual abuse and a human whose lineage is paved with deep family trauma, I’ve devoted the last two decades of my life to healing and discovery. By diligently studying as many diverse modalities as I could, learning became my path to peace. From psychology and sociology at university to Reiki, meditation, massage and more, I am a devoted student, tirelessly willing to live the questions and explore the unchartered terrain of my heart. During my first constellations session, I experienced immense embodied healing where I could literally see the tangled dynamics that had been hidden within my family system for countless generations unravel. For the first time ever, from this new place of genuinely seeing, I could stand and know that my existence matters, that I truly belong and I could wholeheartedly reconnect with the love and support of all who had come before

true place of belonging me. Experiencing lasting healing and sustained shifts as a client, inspired me to become a constellations therapist and share this gift with others. I am so thankful that this powerful alternative to traditional counselling was developed by Bert Hellinger; it’s application is as vast and unique as each individual therapist. Each of us carry consciously and unconsciously, the DNA, life experiences and memories of our ancestors. Ultimately this information exists to strengthen, guide and bless us. However, when life’s natural order is interrupted through events such as the early loss of a parent, miscarriage, abortion, war, migration, suicide or other circumstances, our life force becomes entangled and trauma often arises. Constellations work allows us to heal and let go of these entanglements, yet retain the love. These shifts send ripples through up to seven generations of our lineage. As a mother and therapist, I

courageously do my own work so my children do not need to carry forward unresolved trauma. Freedom is available to each of us. With willingness and courage, we can come to understand that maybe even trauma exists to call us back to wholeness once again. Constellation work is at the cutting edge, widely used across Europe, its benefits in health, business and relationships, undisputed. While relatively new in Australia, in time I have no doubt we will embrace its vast potentiality. Are YOU ready for real lasting change? I invite you to explore constellations.

What is

hypnobirthing?

WORDS KYLIE GILLESPIE

H

ypnobirthing has had quite some media attention lately, with Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, appearing glowing just seven hours after birthing Prince Louis. Kate is reported to have hypnobirthed for all her births. So what is hypnobirthing? First, it is not swinging pendulums or spinning spirals to induce altered consciousness! Imagine meeting your newborn baby for the first time, in an environment where you are able to create a cocoon of such calm and focus and total relaxation around you, that there is no fear or self-doubt and you feel deeply fulfilled and satisfied. That’s what hypnobirthing can provide. Hypnobirthing classes are about educating, eliminating fear, and equipping mother and birth partner with specific physical and mental skills and tools to practise and take into birth with confidence. This allows the mind and body to work together powerfully to allow the birth process forwards

naturally and effectively, and also to deal positively with whatever turn labour may take. The benefits of hypnobirthing for both mother and baby are enormous; what every mother wishes for herself and her baby! Importantly, women who hypnobirth most often see their birth as a positive experience and there is less chance of post-natal depression! Hypnobirthing mums are induced less often; they have more chance of going into spontaneous labour! Studies show that hypnobirthing effectively reduces fear, anxiety and pain in labour. It reduces labour length and also shortens hospital stays. Furthermore, with hypnobirthing, there are also fewer complications and interventions in labour – less pain medication, fewer epidurals and fewer C-sections. With mind and body working together, the body’s powerful labour surges can work really effectively to move your baby through and out into your arms! Sound good? Even when labour takes a necessary, unforeseen turn, the outcome and

perception are still more positive after hypnobirthing! But wait, that’s not all! As well as calm and satisfying birth for the mother, baby shares the care and benefits too. Significantly, hypnobirthing babies generally have higher APGAR scores (the newborn vital signs scale of how baby tolerated the birth and how healthy it appears). Wow! Clearly the state of the mother impacts the baby, and hypnobirth is a gentle, more positive experience for your baby too. The best possible start in life! KYLIE GILLESPIE from Hypnobirthing Sunshine Coast offers group and private hypnobirthing courses. She has created a website about hypnobirthing and so much more, that is a resource for the Sunshine Coast. It has loads of information around pregnancy and birthing, from local maternity services and baby car seat installers, to belly henna artists and photographers. You’ll also find the scientific research that supports hypnobirthing. www.hypnobirthingsunshinecoast.care

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

T

and personal

he birth of my son was the catalyst to what has become more than 20 years of selfdevelopment and evolution. At an early age he was diagnosed with hyperactivity, so I commenced study to learn more about this condition and also to discover more about natural health. I began training in a variety of modalities including: vitamins, cell salts, nutritional therapy, raw food nutrition, diet management, Bach flower remedies, which all made a difference in his life. When I delved further into the world of natural health, I found lots of people struggling with weight issues. This eventually led to opening a nutrition and weight loss clinic based on my learning and education. I purchased Transion-N, slimming and muscle toning aesthetic equipment from Italy, and later added the diagnostic health and vitamin scanner to my clinic. By this time, I had also trained as an image consultant in colour, style and wardrobe planning, having previously

evolution

done personal grooming, deportment and modelling courses. This meant I could help people wanting to make weight/image changes. So once their diet/weight issues were under control, I taught them how to dress wearing their best colours and styles to suit their body shape, plus planning a basic capsule wardrobe using 15 items of clothing to give 45 different styles. Energy wellness equipment based on the Rife frequencies was the next therapy I began to promote in my clinic. I began helping people with muscular and joint issues with conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and also worked on the RSI in my elbow. Great results kept occurring and I went on to buy another two machines (this allows family members to be treated at the same time and it’s ideal for group bookings). Over time, my nutrition and weight loss clinic grew into a complete holistic health clinic incorporating Cerule stem cell nutritional products. Then I came across Dr Oxygen, a portable oxygen

generator in 2015 and I noticed my sleep improved, as I had previously been someone with a busy mind, sometimes experiencing broken sleep. I was so impressed with the results, I wondered if oxygen could be the missing key to many health issues! Then I found out the business was for sale, so I bought it and began assisting people to improve their health. It was also a priority for me to help people on a preventive level. And this therapy provides a variety of benefits allowing for good detoxification. Disease cannot live in active oxygen. As we age, there is often less oxygen being transported in the body, Vitamin C is not absorbed, plus there is a breakdown in collagen. Oxygen therapy slows down the ageing process by keeping our cells clean, so they only wear out very slowly. Oxygen is critical – your body and brain depend on this.

cheaper natural products...

T

here is always pressure to come out with cheaper, natural products. It’s not my passion! Organics is. Certified organic is the benchmark and Australia has some of the highest standards in the world! I’m very proud of that. Money doesn’t drive me. Helping the poor, the animals, making a difference and being the best I can be to this planet, and other people is what motivates me. Even though I love people, there is a part of me that doesn’t trust. Humans are known to justify their actions and be changeable. Especially when it comes to money. How many family and friends do we know that don’t speak over money issues. My family

fight with me about money all the time, however it goes like this… I say, “STOP help everyone you see! No, I’m not accepting that or this…” I have always been the same. Rich or poor. Now, I’m not giving Ferraris a bad rap, don’t get me wrong. I might pay for Netflix for an elderly parent or a homeless person’s rent. I have really gone off track with this topic, sorry my mind wanders and in this safe place, I will go with it. So, I personally support and travel the world holding the flag for the Australian certified organics industry. It’s a transparency that speaks volumes! I know the cost, strict and lengthy process needed to pass the Australian Government’s organic and bio dynamic standards. It is one of the strictest regulations in the world!

They take your products to a lab and have them analysed. They come into your warehouse and go through everything from packaging, invoices, mops and brooms. Every ingredient must be traced back to the seed. The soil composite and herbicides, pesticides, GMOs, animal derivatives are all a NO GO. So if you are Certified Organic, you have been through the wringer; guaranteed. I like certifications as a whole. We have many. This is peace of mind for our customers and takes the guesswork out. That’s why it’s worth the effort to go down the hard road of certification. I truly believe certified organic is superior and speaks volumes about a company. “The truth is always visible.” www.ecotan.com.au

The power of your

intentional beauty regime

WORDS JANINE HALL

W

hen we apply any beauty product we often think of topical application only, however with more individuals becoming aware and being emotionally accountable, it’s time to take a much closer look at your make-up routine. What if you could change your day with the power of your make-up; is it possible? The answer is absolutely, and over the next 12 months or so you will see this trend pop up in your spa treatments, where your therapist will ask you what is your intention for this treatment? As the common saying goes we are what we eat, likewise this should be said about your beauty regime. For a long time now I have known and believe that when applying any product to your skin, it has the ability to change your mood and emotional wellbeing. Which is why it’s so important to know your product inside out. Ingredients found in your beauty regime play a major role in how you feel throughout your day, so the next

time you are applying any product ask yourself how this helps your well-being. This is why I created the Intentional Beauty Balms which are designed to inspire your day through using your focused intent awareness and any situation that requires an emotional connection and support. It’s a simple tool to help you feel more confident, relaxed and happy; and formulated from the pure synergy where science, nature, beauty, and well-being synchronise. AN INTENTIONAL BEAUTY BALM BLIND DATE SUCCESS! A friend who had recently used the Intentional Beauty Balms reported back to me after going on a date with a complete stranger, that she had the best date of her life, now that’s saying something! First of all, it took a lot for her to go out on what was virtually a blind date, and after recently ending things with her former partner, she was scared to trust and didn’t think she could be bothered as things where just too fresh in her

mind. Luckily for her she had a change of heart. As she was getting ready she applied some balms and said the attached mantra which goes with each product. She couldn’t believe how fantastic the date went and strongly believed that her magic little lip balm played a big part in the success of the night. And now whenever she wants to enhance her wellbeing and change her thoughts, she simply applies the Intentional Beauty Balm which helps her ease through her day. She has now been in this relationship for over nine months, and can’t believe how lucky she is, in fact my friend shared with me how she helped her partner overcome a difficult challenge by getting him to apply his own balm.

Profile of an essential oil:

Lavender

WORDS KIM MORRISON

C

onsidered the most popular and well known of all essential oils, Lavender also claims status as the most versatile. The lavandula genus has over 30 species grown around the world with the four main ones being: L. augustifolia – true lavender L. latifolia – spike lavender L. x intermedia – lavandin L. stoechas – maritime lavender Lavender is predominantly found throughout the mountainous areas of the Mediterranean countries with the two main large producers being France and Bulgaria. Smaller producers include Hungary, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, India, Russia, Yugoslavia, Italy and England. True lavender is known as the ultimate for its therapeutic properties whereas lavandin, which is a hybrid of true lavender and spike lavender, is used more extensively in the perfume, personal care and cosmetic industries. Lavandin yields twice as much oil as true lavender, making it ideal for commercialisation. Lavender is documented throughout

history as one of the most reputable healers. Known as the ‘mother’ of all oils, lavender is incredibly soothing and calming. It has been known to help revive the spirit and quiet the mind. It really is like having your dream mum in a bottle. When it comes to nervous conditions, lavender is your go-to. Whilst it is incredibly calming, sedating and comforting for mental and emotional conditions it is also uplifting and energising to someone who is feeling down, depressed or depleted. It is especially helpful for those suffering sleep issues or insomnia. Simply setting the room up with a diffuser or vaporiser with 4-6 drops of lavender, chamomile and orange can be a beautiful evening ritual. A couple of drops on a pillow is also a beautiful anchoring for quality sleep. Not to mention a lovely ritual for everyone in the home including guests. Lavender is highly beneficial for muscular aches and pains. Adding a few drops to a massage blend or to a

magnesium bath can do wonders for recuperation and rest. Adding lavender with eucalyptus, lemon, pine and tea tree can help support the respiratory system. A good old-fashioned inhalation, by placing one drop of each in a bowl of hot water with a towel over the head, can do wonders for a cough, cold, headache or flu. When it comes to the skin, lavender is said to be the most cytophylactic, in other words it helps stimulate the generation of new cells, which aids in the overall health of the skin. It is particularly great in the treatment of burns, bites and stings and is one of the very few oils that can be used in small areas neat, directly on the affected area. A beautiful treat for the skin, particularly if sun or wind burnt is to have a lavender and peppermint bath. The soothing essence of lavender will calm the skin whilst the peppermint will cool it. Lavender would have to be one of the most ‘essential’ essential oils of all. www.twenty8.com

Do you know what hand sanitisers and shopping receipts are doing? WORDS JILL EXTON

H

ow many receipts do you handle every day? The kickstarter coffee; servo refill; kale and quinoa salad for lunch; the essentials pick-up on the way home, bottle of wine, dinner and movie. The transactions are endless and they all seem to gather in your wallet, bag or centre console of your car. The Ecology Centre study found 93 percent of receipts tested positive for BPA or BPS, chemicals that are correlated with negative effects on hormones, metabolism, fertility, autism, obesity, developmental abnormalities, and other bodily functions. These chemicals are quickly and efficiently absorbed into your bloodstream through your skin every time you touch them. Many will be familiar with BPA because it’s been commonly used commercially in plastics since 1957 and in food packaging such as the lining of food and beverage containers amongst many other uses. In 2010, the Australian Government announced a voluntary phase out of BPA use in polycarbonate baby bottles and packaging. By 2012,

the USA and other countries had banned BPA from products. Some researches believe the primary exposure to BPA to be through food. Others found the amount of BPA found in our bodies is actually much higher than what’s in food cans and therefore question where the BPA is coming from? One thought is the ubiquitous register receipts that we all handle whenever we make a purchase. If you think the ink is the culprit, think again. Thermal receipt paper contains a colourless, BPA-containing powder on one side. When heat from the printer strikes the paper, it turns the substance into ink that we can see. So beware the paper! An Environmental Working Group report found that some receipts harbor BPA levels up to 1000 times higher than BPA detected in the linings of metal cans. Now add to the mix conventional hand sanitisers and skin care products that contain toxic chemicals that can increase skin absorption of compounds such as BPA by up to 100 times.

One study found that when thermal receipt paper was held immediately after using a conventional hand sanitiser, significant BPA was transferred to their hands and then to the French fries that were eaten. This BPA absorption led to a rapid and dramatic increase in BPA within 90 minutes. HERE’S A FEW HANDY TIPS: 1. Say no to receipts 2. Use e-receipts/paperless receipts if available 3. If you need the receipt, carry an envelope and have the cashier drop it directly inside 4. Use non-toxic skincare and hand sanitisers, NOT conventional toxic products 5. Never give a child a receipt to hold or play with 6. After handling a receipt, wash hands before preparing and eating food 7. Do not recycle receipts and other thermal paper. BPA residues from receipts will contaminate recycled paper. www.chemfreecom.com

Sow the seeds of a WORDS GUY FINLEY

I

f we are ever to realise the integrity and consistent kindness of our true nature, if we long to know something of Heaven while we live on earth, then we must sow the seeds that bring that higher life into fruition. One cannot expect to reap what one does not sow; and merely hoping for a higher life is not sowing true spiritual seeds, any more than climbing an imagined mountain is the same as reaching its top. To sow spiritual seeds means that we do spiritual work. Spiritual work is always interior work first, even if, as a matter of course, this work becomes manifest through exterior action. What is this interior work by which we sow the seeds of the celestial within us? 1. We must work to not burden others or ourselves with past regrets, disappointments, or fearful future visions, even as we learn to ask truth for more insight into those unseen aspects of our present nature that are reaping

higher and happier life their regrets even as they sow more of the same dark seeds. 2. We must learn to sit quietly with ourselves and wait patiently for the light of peace to replace those dark, noisy thoughts and feelings telling us that we have too much old baggage to finish our spiritual journey. Each time we sow these seeds through some quiet meditation, we reap the strength that comes from realising that this silence that comes to us is our true home. 3. We must deliberately remember our intention to start our whole life over, every moment we awaken to find ourselves reliving some past conflict. To cultivate this refreshed outlook, born of remembering that our true life is always new in the now, is to let go of who we have been and to begin reaping a life free of anger and fear. 4. We must learn to look our fears, weariness, and anxiety directly in the eye, and instead of seeing what is impossible according to their view

of life, sow the seeds of a new self by daring to doubt their dark view of things. Our refusal to identify with selflimiting negative states, reaps us the reward of rising above their inherent limitations. If we wish a life that is whole and loving, one that is filled with new light, then we must sow these eternal seeds within ourselves; that is our work. Make your own list of ways to work at sowing the seeds of the higher life. Set yourself to the task of being an inwardly awake person and watch how you begin to reap the awareness that makes all things possible.

Dominion

AUTHOR Natasha Scripture

WRITER/DIRECTOR Chris Delforce

Discover Natasha Scripture’s smart, funny and soulsearching memoir which takes readers with her, deep into the wilderness: from meditating in an Ayurvedic ashram in southern India, to toiling on a vineyard on Mount Etna, to going on a solosafari in southern Tanzania (where she also marries herself). In stepping away from the demands of modern life and societal pressure to couple up, Natasha finds a space where she allows herself to become fully present and awake: to her emotions, to her physical well-being and to love as a mystical, ever-present force.

Dominion is our heart-stopping moral obligation, to bear witness to Australia’s vile, wicked abomination. Our farms and slaughterhouses hide a sick, secret conspiracy. Innocent eyes, terrified and voiceless victims, beg us to end this bloodthirsty barbarity. Chris Delforce’s documentary is a ground-breaking, heroic masterpiece of Australian cinema. Moreover, it’s a spiritual calling. For a planetary uprising of peace, love and awakening that can’t come soon enough! Many tears will be shed. Yet all our tears won’t return the billions of stolen lives, nor wash away oceans of spilt blood. Bravo, Mr Delforce. The switch is flicked. Now, we will rise together.  – Review by Andrew Dudek

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

What is animal kinesiology? INTERVIEW WITH CLAIRE OATES

A

nimal kinesiology is a natural therapy that combines the science of energetic balancing with the western medicine knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Animal kinesiology not only addresses imbalances within the animal’s body, but also considers how the owners’ energy is affecting their animal. Q: How did you begin using kinesiology with animals? A: For many years I was an animal behaviourist and trainer. During this time, I began to notice the correlation between animal behaviour and the emotional balance of the owners. It was apparent that the animals were mirroring the owners’ emotions. For example, I noticed that the owners of nervous dogs were often very anxious people, and even the physical ailments of animals and owners often matched up. I knew I could have a bigger impact on the animal’s problem behaviours if I could work on the owner as well. This led me to study kinesiology as a way of re-balancing the owner and animal together.

Q: What type of problems can animal kinesiology help with? A: I use neurological techniques to work on behavioural problems, where I balance the limbic system to move the animal out of a state of fight/flight. This calms the nervous system and greatly reduces the intensity of aggression and anxiety. Kinesiology is extremely beneficial for animals with allergies and other autoimmune conditions as it rebalances the immune system holistically. Q: What is involved in an animal kinesiology session? A: I begin by identifying the core reason for the problem. This is often stress that is held within the body that is creating an energetic disturbance either on a physical, emotional or energetic level. The stress may be located in a muscle, organ, meridian, chakra or acupressure point. I then integrate the owner into the session and begin identifying what particular emotion or stress is affecting their animal. We can learn so much about ourselves through the behaviour of our animals. Finally, I remove the core stress and re-balance

both animal and owner using a range of natural therapy techniques. Q: What do you enjoy most about your work? A: I love to explore the connection people have with their animals and decipher how their stress or unprocessed emotions are affecting their animals. Being able to explain the reason for the problem, remove the stress and core issue whilst strengthening the connection between owner and animal is an absolute privilege. My clients love going on a journey of self-discovery with their animals! www.animalenergytherapies.com

NATURAL ANIMAL CARE

What can we learn from our animal friends about communication? WORDS DAVINA O’BRIEN

T

o say or not to say? In my life that is a question I often ask. I have a great respect for the power of the spoken word. Possibly too much, since I am often reluctant to speak out loud what is in my head. If I say what I am thinking it makes me vulnerable. I worry that people to whom I am talking will reject me. Even worse is the possibility that what I say will wound people beyond repair. When you are relating to someone to whom you are close, you often know (consciously or unconsciously) what ‘buttons’ to push. So when you get emotional about an issue, it is easy to start pushing those buttons. I recently went into silent mode with my family for a couple of days. My words were rolling around inside of me. I was afraid that if I spoke out loud that what would come out would be corrosive and damaging to others. Then I realised that by not speaking, I was damaging myself and giving off weird vibes. So, I talked to a friend of mine – someone not invested in the situation. She asked me what outcome I was wishing to achieve. This was an awesome reframe as it allowed me to take the emotion out of what was

going on for me. By only looking inward and not speaking to the others involved in the situation, I had a one dimensional view of what was happening. Of course once I started speaking to my family about what was upsetting me, the conversation didn’t go according to script that I had pre-written when I had rehearsed it in my own mind. As humans we are taught as children that if we wish to be a good girl or boy, then we need to be polite. This can lead to us being unauthentic and not speaking up about matters that are important to us. If we look at the animal world, they don’t do polite. They are who they are.

If someone is offended, then they tell the other party. It is resolved instantly and they move on. There is a lot to be learnt from our animal friends. What works for me is combining the wisdom of my human friend, with that of my horse friends. I can start speaking up when things trouble and upset me. That way they don’t have to become big issues. However if there is an issue that I perceive to be a ‘big’ issue, if I can reflect about what I am wishing to achieve by speaking up, I am more likely to be less emotional. They say practice makes perfect. So I am off to practise speaking up with an authentic voice. www.thepetenergytherapy.com

Animal communication and the Map of Consciousness WORDS VIVIENNE PASTARS, Zen Dog Massage

W

hile studying with the Inspired Spirit Coaching Academy in 2013, I was introduced to the Map of Consciousness, a fascinating exploration into vibrational energy. Sir David R Hawkins, MD, PhD, is an internationally renowned psychiatrist, consciousness researcher, spiritual lecturer, and mystic who combined the discovery that, all atoms and sub atoms are energy, with leading research on human awareness. The results scientifically validate and prove ALL objects possess energy – and this energy vibrates on what is known as the Map of Consciousness. Below is a very brief snapshot: The Map of Consciousness ranges from 1-1000. The lowest end of the spectrum is someone in complete survival mode, the highest end being an enlightened master – e.g. Jesus and Buddha. If you are functioning above level 200, you will have more positive traits relating to higher consciousness and will operate from a level of truth. Traits like: neutrality (250), willingness (310), acceptance (350), reason (400), love

(500), joy (540), peace (600) and enlightenment (700-1000). If you are functioning below level 200, you will have more negative traits and be operating from a level of survival and falsehood. Traits like: shame (1-20), guilt (30), apathy (50), grief (75), fear (100), desire (craving and addiction 125), anger (150), pride (materialistic 175), courage (200). Approximately 85% of the human race calibrates below the critical level of 200. Luckily, the power of individuals calibrating way above 200, counterbalances the weakness of the masses. Dr Hawkins also discovered that your energy affects those around you. One person operating at a level of love (500) can lift 750,000 other individuals to above 200. So how do you raise your level of consciousness? I recently raised my vibrations of guilt (30) and grief (75) to acceptance (350) by working with animal communicator Jane Gorton of Mrs Doolittle’s Pawfect Harmony. For six years I had been grieving the loss of my heart dog Sandy. Emotions were raw, tears flowed and I felt emotionally ‘stuck’. Jane intuitively

connected with Sandy using a modality called Theta Resonance, At All Levels, a holistic and spiritual method of healing developed by Australian, Katherine Bright ND. With Jane’s compassionate communication and Dr Hawkins explanation, I can now appreciate my connection beyond the physical with my unlimited, joyous companion Sandy. Animals bring their own unconditional love to a relationship, instantly raising our vibration. With a deeper level of connection made possible through animal communication, a good vibration of love (500) for all sentient beings can radiate. www.zen-dogmassage.com Mrs Doolittle’s Pawfect Harmony – www.mrsdoolittlespawfectharmony.com

From

Illusion to Enlightenment The Intensives are designed as a transformational process to raise your consciousness through a natural synthesis of simplicity, clarity, wisdom and Truth.

I have navigated the murky waters of metaphysics and spirituality for over five decades and landed on the elusive shore of Enlightenment over 30 years ago. This makes me a more than qualified tour guide in helping others pierce the veil of illusion and discover their Truth, so you too, can reach that seemingly ‘distant shore.’ Actually, it’s closer than your breath. So . . . please join us!
