elcome to March…the start of Autumn and our body awareness edition! So if your body can communicate, what is it trying to say? When we are busy it’s easy to forget to tune in to the body…so then it finds a way to get our attention…sometimes in the form of pain, discomfort or even disease!! It’s interesting that some spiritual traditions deny or ignore the body, although many of us know that the body is a great receiver of information and when we are in tune – it’s a real gift. Our contributors share their inspirational words this month and discuss how important the body is in letting us know about what is working in our lives and what isn’t. If we really listen, and stay open to the wisdom of the body, we can build trust and transform our lives. What if your body became your lifelong friend and can support you every step of the way? *Special mention goes to Sue Joseph

Go in the draw to win one of 5 amazing Rejuvenation CDs by Matt and Lauren James. Entries close 31st March and winners will be notified on the 2nd April. Email: competition@holisticblissmagazine.com Who’s on the cover? It’s gorgeous Jules O’Neill! This month Jules shares her story with us and explains how she developed a life changing system of working with energy and awareness (p14-15) – please read and share.

Amazing

Marjoram By Vicki Taylor, Queen of Spice

M

arjoram is a hardy perennial bush and is one of the most widely used herbs in Europe yet Oregano is used more throughout the rest of the world. Although very similar to Oregano, Marjoram isn’t as strong in both smell and taste, but still has a distinctive flavour. You may also be familiar with names like Sweet Marjoram or Knotted Marjoram. It was known to the Greeks as a sign of happiness. It matches very well with chicken and meats, especially veal and pork. And goes well with all vegetables, especially tomatoes. Try adding it to any dish that contains cheese - it just lifts it completely. Adding it to the end of the cooking process will ensure the delicate flavour won’t be destroyed. And remember, if you use dried herbs in lieu of fresh herbs, you only need a third of the amount. www.redhotchillipepper.com.au

Almonds

By Sarah Clarke

A

lmonds and a healthy heart… Time to give you a little low down on the Power of almonds! Research tells us that almonds are a healthy choice. Almonds contain “good” monounsaturated fat – also found in olive oil and avocados. Studies show that diets which replace saturated fat with monounsaturated fat, are beneficial for heart health. Almonds also contain phytosterols, which are plant compounds that help support heart health. A 30g serve of natural or unsalted almonds are Heart Foundation Tick approved. Nutritional Benefits: Almonds are a rich source of good oil, with a study suggesting that almonds contain 44% oils, of which 62% is monounsaturated oleic acid (an Omega 9 fatty acid), 29% is linoleic (an poly-unsaturated omega 6 EFA and 9% is a saturated fatty acid. They are extremely high in Vitamin E. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, this means that it protects our cells from damage, helping to maintain a healthy heart and blood vessels. Vitamin E also works best in foods that contain some good dietary fat, like almonds, to help its absorption. Just a small handful of almonds (30g) provides over half your daily vitamin E requirements. Almonds really are a natural Vitamin E powerhouse! Almonds are also low in sugar, gluten free and are a low GI food. Eating low GI foods provides sustained energy. www.naturalearthhealthproducts.com.au

This month Holistic Bliss talks to Sarah Clarke, the owner and managing dir ector of local business, N atural Earth Health Pr oducts. In just two years she has completely transformed an existing health food business that she bought that had been operating previously for twenty-f ve years. Sarah shares her passions and her tips for good health:

Q: What do you love about your work? A: I have always had a passion for holistic health. We are blessed with an amazing machine and we need to look after it really well. Respecting that your health is your greatest asset is so important. We need to invest time and energy into ensuring that what we put in our mouths, on our body and the things we surround ourselves with is in our best interest. You can help your body repair by giving it the right fuel to get the job done. Too many people keep their immune systems super busy by loading themselves with processed, nutrient poor foods and are not careful about what they put in and on their bodies. Our Earth has so many naturally sourced, life giving foods, that are raw and whole and alive that are complete and wonderful sources of fuel and remedies. I love finding out what each food can provide nutritionally and how foods can work in symmetry to create the composition for what our bodies need. I love helping others to find a way through the minefield of information.

Owning a business that manufactures and provides products that are made from wholefood/raw and organic foods for people who are either wanting to improve their health, need support through a time of illness or for people who already get the importance of good nutrition is really cool. I love it. Q: What can we do to be more aware of what our bodies require? A: Today it’s harder than ever to get all the nutrients you need from your diet. With fast-paced lifestyles and the ever-increasing abundance of processed foods, it is crucial to empower yourself with information. The knowledge to transform the long term health of you and your loved ones and avoid becoming a customer of the sickness industry is in your own hands. It is so important to eliminate foods from your diet that may cause health issues. With three children of my own, I know that setting a good example and creating good habits early in life for the kids is really important. The more they know about what’s good for them and what isn’t and why, the better choices they can make for themselves.

Many common ailments begin as a result of eating highly processed foods, which have low nutritional value, are high in bad fats and low in soluble fibre. A healthy digestive system is crucial for your overall health as it is the mechanism which converts food into fuel and supplies the energy to power our body and resist disease. If our body is unable to process food properly, essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals will just simply pass through our system undigested. Q: What are your top 6 tips for maintaining good health? A: 1. Water is your friend. Drinking lots of pure, filtered water is essential. 2. Look at the labels – check the ingredient list. Note the sugar content. Become aware and educate yourself of what the numbers and big words mean on labels, before you put things in and on your body. If you can, invest in a guide: I stock one called ‘The Chemical Maze – Shopping Companion’. It covers ingredients used in both food and cosmetics. It’s easy to use and understand. When you begin to get a fair idea of what’s what – you will find you put a lot of things back on the shelf. It’s

FOOD FOR THE SOUL funny I often have people stop and ask me ‘Why did you choose that over the other?’ When they see me making label comparisons in the supermarket. 3. Exercise your amazing machine‌ get it moving! It makes all your systems work better! 4. Sleep. Switch off the mind so the body can get busy doing some cool processes ie; detox while you dream! 5. Eat detox promoting foods. You are what you eat – but more importantly, you are what you absorb! The toilet is something you need to be visiting every day‌ if you’re not – sort it out without delay! 6. Try to buy organic produce or food that comes from local smaller farms. Too much of our commercial farming land today has been used for decades at an intensive farming level and has depleted levels of trace elements in the soil, ie; selenium. We are really lucky on the Sunshine Coast that so much is available, at a good price. Why not explore the choices and live a long, healthy life!

Cleansing with Coconut Oil properties. Other than coconut oil, these MCFAs can only be naturally found in mother’s breast milk. This is what gives coconut oil its reputation as ‘The breast milk of Mother Nature’.

By Jenni Madison

C

leansing or detoxing the body has been understood as a way to stay healthy and ward off ailments from as far back as Ancient Health Tradition findings. The health benefits from cleansing the body continue to be well documented today. The benefits of cleansing with coconut oil, in particular organic virgin coconut oil, have recently been recognised as taking the detoxification process of the body to a whole other level. Coconut oil is a saturated fat that consists primarily of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). The MCFAs in coconut oil possess incredible health-giving

In his books Coconut Cures and The Coconut Miracle, Dr Bruce Fife relates that the MCFA’s in coconut oil kill disease causing bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. These microorganisms not only cause infection but also often produce toxic by-products that are carcinogenic. So imagine what organic virgin coconut oil could do for your health and beauty when it is used to cleanse the body, both inside and out! Dr Fife’s research has also revealed that the MCFA’s in coconut oil are used by the body as a source of fuel to stimulate metabolism. As metabolism increases so does the body’s natural mechanisms of detoxification, repair, and growth – even the immune system is shifted to a higher level of efficiency. Coconut oil is also chemically stable, so it functions as an antioxidant protecting against destructive free radicals that are often generated by toxins. Including organic virgin coconut oil in your next liver cleanse regime will definitely reap results.

Internal Cleansing The antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties of coconut oil are a first rate cleanser for the digestive system, as it assists liver function. A simple internal cleanse regime could consist of ingesting warm water and lemon juice first thing in the morning, with one tablespoon of Coconut Magic. Or to make a super smoothie, simply add one tablespoon of Coconut Magic. External Cleansing When applied topically, coconut oil neutralises all of the micro fungi and bacteria on the skin while offering a deep cleanse. Coconut oil contains the same ingredients as our natural skin oil, sebum, and therefore nourishes and hydrates in a way that boosts our skins natural immune system. A simple skin cleanse is to add some fine sea salt to coconut oil for a healthy body scrub. For extra smooth and supple skin apply after bathing and pat dry with a fresh towel. To cleanse the face massage gently with water, then wipe clean with a damp face cloth.

Burmese Golden Semolina Pudding FOOD FOR THE SOUL

M

y cousin Teresa would make this for us whenever she visited and it was one of my favourites especially cold, with a cup of tea. Generally Burmese meals do not include sweets. Fresh tropical fruits in season are usually served after the meal to cool and cleanse the palette. Like most other neighbouring countries in the region, sweets are eaten in between meals as a snack, although, unlike India and Thailand the sweets of Burma are only mildly sweet. The recipe I have shown below is quite easy to make but perhaps you may need another pair of hands on standby to assist with the stirring as once the semolina begins to thicken it can be quite a task. MY main tip here is to KEEP STIRRING until the mixture begins to pull away cleanly from the sides of the pan. It is traditionally served on its own but I like to serve it with whole fresh berries and a mix of rose water. Fragrant and exotic; it really gives the dish a modern twist and for those who like to indulge, a sweet coconut and cardamom cream wouldn’t hurt.

SHWEGYI SANWIN MAKIN – Burmese Golden Semolina Pudding Pronounced “Sinnamikin” Recipe by Trish Davison Ingredients: 1 cup course semolina 1 cup coconut milk 2 cups coconut cream 1 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt 125g ghee (butter or peanut oil can be substituted but ghee has a particular flavour that I personally adore in this recipe Pinch of cardamom powder 2 large eggs beaten 2 tbsp slivered almonds Small handful of raisins 1 tbsp white and black poppy seeds Method: Put the semolina into a LARGE heavy based pan and on mid heat, stir till it begins to slightly change colour and you get a fragrant roasted smell. Be careful NOT TO BURN IT. Add in the coconut milk and cream and stir making sure to remove all lumps. Add the sugar and bring to a slow boil – Continue stirring all the time. Add Ghee and continue cooking and stirring until the

mixture is beginning to thicken and at the first sign of bubbles turn down the heat and add the remaining ingredients except the poppy and sesame seeds. Allow to simmer gently for about 8-10 minutes and the mixture begins to pull away cleanly from the pan. Pour into a large baking dish or cake pan that has been greased or lined with baking paper. Sprinkle the poppy seeds and toasted sesame seeds at the very end and bake in an oven that has been preheated to 160 degrees for 40 minutes. Grill the top to make it crispy, golden brown and crunchy. Serve warm or at room temp with the berries and sweet cardamom cream. Burma In Ya Belly HEAT and EAT prepared meals are now available at RED HOT CHILLI PEPPER, Bulcock Street Caloundra. Why not throw together a dinner party or luncheon and pick up some curries. Then add chilli condiments, rice, salad and some crispy wok tossed greens, plus bake this cake above and you could have an exotic meal that transports you and your guests to Mandalay in no time at all.

The joy of eating LIVE food! FOOD FOR THE SOUL

By Scott Mathias

I

have seen them all, the diets that is and most do not work and aren’t worth the money or the pain. There is one simple option which is guaranteed to shed kilograms of weight and at the same time allow your body to drop into a state of balance where all appropriate food is broken down and assimilated perfectly. It’s called the Eating for Health Diet. It doesn’t come with flashy ads on the TV with even flashier

testimonials from well known TV stars. The Eating for Health Diet is one you manage yourself on a daily basis. In simple terms I began by removing all dairy, wheat, processed food and sugar from my diet. Oh I had already changed the relationship I had with meat. Not needed at all. The funny thing is you don’t die if you stop eating all these ‘old world’ proteins and nutritionally compromised foods.

Would you like

Freedom from Pain?

Pain is such a debilitating condition. Every day I come across people who suffer physical pain and are sick of treatments and pills that don’t give lasting relief. In many cases pain stops people from living a normal life,” says Gary Little, author of the book: “Shattering The Pain Myth”. The biggest problem is, he continues, that the majority of people believe that their chronic pain cannot be resolved and they have to put up with it for the rest of their life. “I totally disagree with it, and have seen many cases where people were in chronic pain for years and now are able to live normal, pain free lives.” Gary Little for 20 years had been working as a sports and injury specialist travelling with elite athletes around the world. Treating the reoccurring symptoms wasn’t good enough for him so he started asking the big question WHY? Why are those super fit athletes in pain, why is the pain coming back, again and again? What Gary discovered in his

research is that in order to treat physical pain, we have to look into the mindbody connection. One of his discoveries is that stress and negative emotions reduce blood flow supply throughout the body by contracting the veins and arteries making the muscles shortened and create those painful knots. Oxygen is essential for the proper function of the muscles. By relaxing the body and getting rid of the stress (by using very profound relaxation methods), we can relax the muscles and improve blood flow and as a result, dissolve the pain. Gary has worked on his ‘Empowered From Pain’ (EFP) Program for an extensive amount of time, testing a large number of different methods, and is happy to announce that the EFP Program he offers is holistic and non invasive, and what’s most important, is it’s dealing with the underlying issues to solve the pain for good. Gary is so confident with the positive results that he gives 100% money back guarantee for everyone who tries and is not happy with it.

The EFP Program is for people who’ve tried ‘everything’, and are still in pain. It is also for those who are not in constant pain but rely on the therapist or treatments to keep them functional but they haven’t resolved their underlying problem, which is a build-up of stress. Gary offers two options, one is a 6-week EFP workshop and the other is an online course which people can download in the comfort of their own home (which has been attracting international interest and participation). The EFP Program can help people to overcome conditions such as chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, neck and shoulder pain, muscle pain and tenderness, chronic stress related problems like insomnia, migraine or tension headaches. It is also highly beneficial for people who wish to improve their physical performance to keep them in their best shape.

met Jules O’Neill for the first time this month and experienced her enigmatic, joyful, warm energy. Not only is she the mother of three beautiful children, she is a pioneer in the field of energy healing in Queensland and will soon be releasing her powerful new book, ‘Wake up and Live’. Through realising her special healing gifts she has gone on to help thousands of people heal their lives with energy and awareness. So it’s a delight to share Jules’ transformational journey! From an early age Jules had a keen sense of adventure and was open to life’s possibilities even though she felt quite ‘different’ at times from others. Jules grew up in Sydney and was raised by her family who were of Polish decent (second generation from the war) and Catholics. She said her family would often deal with stress by yelling, eating rich foods, drinking alcohol, and being workaholics, and her formative years were characterised by high emotional turmoil. “As a teenager, I couldn’t control my anxieties and stresses and I used to keep them hidden so on the outside you probably couldn’t tell but at home I would explode and be uncontrollable and so I used alcohol and marijuana to try to calm me down but it never worked,” she explained. Then in her early twenties she had an awakening and commenced her healing journey. The catalyst came when her boyfriend consulted a chiropractor for a sports injury. The chiropractor also practised (NET) Neuro Emotional Technique and talked about how feelings from the past can get locked in our

bodies. When Jules heard her boyfriend talk about the idea of cellular healing, she felt an energetic calling to have a session with the same chiropractor and went on to have a treatment with him every week for about five years. “I saw these sessions as my uni degree. I healed myself intensively and in the process I opened up to a lot of my gifts that I didn’t know were there,” said Jules. She was eventually able to see and sense energy around people as well as perceive what was blocked or not flowing in their bodies and body systems and realised she could use this understanding to help others heal. How did the Body Consciousness system develop? After she had healed herself quite deeply, she thought about becoming a practitioner (her childhood dream was to become a doctor) and decided to begin healing and facilitating bodies. Although, she says her big training and realisations came when she started having babies. So she began to create a healing system sixteen years ago after healing and facilitating her first born baby girl. Jules used a combination of awareness, muscle testing and imaging. “My daughter would get a rash and I’d heal it with awareness and then when she woke up at night I’d muscle test my body to see if I needed to get up and feed her or change her nappy and so I started to see that my body would guide me as to what was needed. I didn’t tell anyone because I couldn’t explain it or understand it,” she said. Jules also admitted that when her baby had a rash and she couldn’t heal it, she realised the rash was connected with an issue she had at the time and when she healed that issue in herself, her baby’s rash disappeared. So she started to see how we can pick up other people’s ‘stuff ’ and this understanding grew as she had two more children. “My children have been my greatest teachers,” she said. But her biggest breakthrough was at mother’s club. “I used to hear all the other mother’s being upset about not sleeping

of

and their babies being sick and also being stressed about their husbands, so I started to share the tools I was using and asked if I could help them. That’s when I started healing other people confidently,” Jules said. After her third baby, it was a natural progression for Jules to develop a workshop for women called ‘Women’s Wisdom’- teaching women how to do this for themselves and in their own families. The system grew and expanded and in order to teach all the energy techniques, tools and concepts she developed ‘Body Consciousness.’ Her main focus now is training healers and watching more people benefit from the tools. Because Jules hasn’t been influenced by a teaching or a specific path, she is a leader in her field and her personal practice (based at Circle Wellness Clinic on the Sunshine Coast) is booked out a year in advance. The world of energy is the same magic that operates around us and through our planet, we can’t see or define it but we know the tide comes in and out and the flowers open and close. That’s the same energy Jules is able to share through Body Consciousness so we can know how to use awareness and energy. Where our bodies have been shut down, the awareness opens up channels to let energy come in and heal our emotional and physical issues. The energy first heals our body systems and keeps us growing and then once we are healthy, we can use energy to create whatever we desire. “Once you become aware of what’s going on behind the scenes, that awareness unlocks something amazing in your body”. Jules believes it’s also important to have a balance between our neurology and the environment. For example, if we plant a mango tree in the snow it will struggle but if we grow it in south east Qld it will flourish. She said conditioned patterns and programs also play an important part. “For example, the energy behind the conditioned patterns and

programs of me being reactive, insecure, neurotic and explosive, is the ability to be psychic, telepathic, aware and accurate in reading energy well.” The energy behind all programs can be transformed from a negative reaction to a positive action. A great question to ask your body is, ‘how else can I use the energy of those ‘insecurities’?’ Jules believes it’s about tuning in and “trusting your whole body, not just your thinking, so that eventually your life will be full of warmth and what you didn’t like about yourself will become valuable.” She says body awareness is also about looking after the physical body without creating too many rigid regimes. “I don’t have a judgement if I drink a glass of champagne for breakfast or a green smoothie. I use energy and awareness to maintain my health.” I tune into my body and follow what it needs in that moment. Although when she is in creating mode, she is quite strict with her health routine to support her body and facilitate her creativity. “I do Ashtanga yoga on most days but if I didn’t do it or took a month off it wouldn’t bother me. I don’t judge myself or others anymore about anything,” she said. “It is important to follow your own flow, what feels right via your heart in the moment. That’s where all the magic is.” Jules sees how everyone and everything is related. “Everyone under their reactive behaviours is an amazing soul. I’ve treated many people in many different situations, some even extreme, and regardless of the story, underneath is a soul saying ‘help me’ and show me who I am. I have also seen so many miracles; I’ve seen big things shift when using the combination of awareness and energy. Things like chronic fatigue, long-term illnesses, depressions, financial struggles, relationship issues, anxieties, addictions.. I believe that there’s nothing you can’t move through with awareness and energy.” www.bodyconsciousness.com.au Holistic Bliss, March 2013

By Jean Sheehan, Principal – Millennium Education

The human body is a blueprint for your most dominant thoughts. It is a print out of the internal vibration. Our bodies hold on to our experiences, thoughts and belief systems. The body is a reflection of our truth and shows our unconscious secrets. You are the author of your life. Your biography becomes your biology in your body.” Jean Sheehan So what is your biography you are writing and creating as your biology? The best way to describe this was with an example. What is the consciousness or meaning of the breast what is the story leading to breast cancer? The consciousness of the breast includes respect, nourishment, nurturing, acceptance, sensuality and sexuality. The nipple chakra relates to neediness and resentment. Janet never felt she was given special consideration or given attention and felt totally unacceptable. She had created breast cancer. Janet continually attracted

men that treated her with disrespect and disregard as though she was nothing and not acceptable. She treated herself that way too. Janet never put herself first and never gave herself attention. She never acknowledged her success or achievements. Janet did not see she made a difference to people’s lives and once she accepted that and acknowledged herself her cancer healed. Hannah craved nourishment and nurturing. As a mum she continually gave this to everyone else but not herself. Since staying at home she felt like she lost her sensuality and sexuality and was seen as ‘just a mum’. It was the cancer that gave Hannah the ‘permission’ to nurture and nourish herself on all levels including change of diet, daily regime, life style and putting herself as number one. Her hunger was now to live an empowered life and attracted everything to her that was encouraging. She regained her identity as a sensual and sexual woman.

Each body part is programmed to hold particular emotions and we subconsciously create disease to fulfil that emotion. Neediness is one of these diseases locked in to the breast chakra. The neediness comes from feeling alone. They do not realise their own potential and what they can achieve as an interdependent person. They can create breast cancer as a way of feeling loved and their partner not leaving them. That is what happened to Bridget. She stated “Now my partner will stay with me and I won’t be alone.” She went to many practitioners and health professionals. There were signs of co dependency. This had stemmed from her father leaving home when she was 9 years old and she never felt safe which also created resentment. This build up of feelings was then taken in to her current relationship. Once aware she was able to clear her cancer. What is your body saying? www.AbsoluteEmpowerment.com

Our Body As A

I

nformation overload and overwhelm can create much confusion in this technological revolution, as we try to keep up with all the data, and resources that are ours at the flick of a button. The technology collates, computes, files and sorts things for us and creates an avenue of clarity and the answers and messages we are looking for, become apparent. All we have to do is choose which information is aligning with who we are and what we inherently believe. The technology delivers the message clearly. Our physical bodies have an incredible capacity to receive information and communicate it to us as well. Sight, hearing, taste, touch, our feelings, intuition and instincts, and our energy bodies are absorbing and taking in so much information from our environment and processing it at lightning speed. The awareness our bodies have is so high, however many of us have not got a clue how to interpret, decipher or even listen to the messages we receive constantly. This is where we end up in health crisis and chaos.

Our body is an incredible gauge for the information being fed to us constantly from our environment and how this works with us and through us. The clearer we are in ourselves, the easier it is to understand what our body is telling us BEFORE it becomes a major health issue, perhaps an injury, or disease. The world of metaphysics, the emotional or energetic cause of illness, is becoming more accepted and advanced as quantum science supports what the ancients have held true through time. We as physical beings are a product of our environment, energetic conduits that give and receive messages through vibration and frequency. These messages are defined by the individual filters they have to travel through, for us to perceive them into a level of personal understanding. The physical body is the LAST layer, or level, that will show us when something is not aligned. The misalignment has already travelled through our spirit, energy bodies and

emotions to finally land in the physical. Subtle messages from your inner awareness speaking to your body. These can be feelings of being off, down or icky. Ignore these subtle messages, then the symptoms become more painful and debilitating. That is ALWAYS when we will do something. Funnily enough, this is the hardest one to shift. Once the messages have become dense in physical form, it takes patience and commitment of lifestyle changes to get back on track. Choosing to live with greater body awareness is a simple act of selfknowledge and responsibility. Listen to your body, ask what it requires, meditate, walk, spend time in nature, look at how you feed your body, and how you feed your thoughts, do some energy clearing, and simply ask your body...How are you feeling, what do you need? Then ACT with wisdom. Namaste

HELP FOR SICK CHILDREN We are a group of natural health practitioners who specialise in tuning in to your problem and bringing you back to health. We assess the cause, and address it with diet, bodywork and natural protocols to restore healthy function.

Lynn Jannides is a gifted Healer and Medical Intuitive, blessed with healing hands since childhood. “It is my life purpose to use this gift to help people who are not responding to medical treatments, especially children. Being sensitive, their bodies can’t cope with toxins, presenting health conditions not seen in the past. I have assisted sick children with low immunity, fatigue, hyperactivity, sleeping problems, nightmares, injuries and painful conditions. And of course adults and animals can be helped as well.” Lynn scans the body to pick up blockages and imbalances and releases them using White Light surgery, Medical intuition, and Reiki. This allows the body to start healing itself. Usually only one to three gentle healings are needed.

Temple of the

Soul

By Soraya Saraswati

O

ur body is both the temple and the barometer of our soul. It is therefore important to ground and balance the life-force and thus maintain a healthy productive body temple in order to best house such a treasure. In this way we can achieve our earthy goals and ambitions with grace and ease. I often see clients who are wonderful people, with high ambitions, or dedicated to their spiritual growth however their body is not a reflection of their aims or goals. Their body is sick, tired or out of balance. This in turn plays havoc with their emotional balance, feeding negative and self defeating thought patterns. Without healthy energy levels, we will fail to achieve our outcomes. The body is the most incredible gift, with its inbuilt intelligence that links us directly to a ‘Divine Intelligence’ so perfect that we can achieve Heaven on earth. Our body has an innate ability to

tell us very clearly what is healthy and supportive of a Vibrant Happy Life and what is blocking this achievement and pushing us into struggle mode. One way of tapping into this intelligence is during a daily meditation or by doing nothing, allowing the mind to be quiet away from any distractions and sensing and feeling the intelligence and messages from your higher self. Foster a deep committed and honourable relationship with yourself. Living within a healthy body in connection to the oneness of this divine essence, we can be contributors to a higher planetary consciousness. If we are tired, exhausted, stressed, depressed or sick we will struggle finding it impossible to become both positive and powerful contributors to either our families or communities. Be aware of the choices you are making in every moment. Every thought, action and reaction you feed will influence the health and vibrancy of your body and the quality of your divine energy.

Yes, we are ‘Souls having a Human Experience” however to do this well we need to remember the Human Experience is made more productive and joyful if we honour and listen to our body, the Temple of your Soul in this life. Tend to your temple with love and gratitude, ‘En Joy’ the blessing of life on earth. Our body is constantly sending us messages, however we are often so caught up in our heads and in ‘Doing Mode’ that we either do not hear these important messages or if we do we fail to heed them. If we develop a sensitivity to our body and its divine messages, enhance our intuition and learn simple processes to confirm what will support a vibrant, intelligent, healthy body and then act accordingly we can become wonderful contributors to our families, communities and to global consciousness as a whole. www.sorayasaraswati.com

Body Aware

or Body Judge and Juror?

By Donnielle Carter

H

ave you judged that you and your body are in a relationship of pain, suffering and gore? And then sentenced yourself to a lifetime of misery? How often do we become ‘aware’ of our bodies by judging them? Please, look at this. When you wake up in the morning do you say hello to your body with gratitude and kindness or do you start to judge it? “I’m too fat. I look tired. Why can’t my body change?” What do you say to your body throughout the day? Any kindness? Any gratitude? Or is it judgment after judgment? What if it’s not your fault? We’ve been taught in this reality to judge – to find what’s wrong so we can fix it. With that as the standard operating

procedure, where are the possibilities of fun and joy with our body? What? Fun and joy with your body? I know this sounds like a foreign concept but if your body got you to read this then is it likely that somewhere you must know that this is possible? Think about somebody who you adore. Got that person? Now imagine a time when they were grateful for you and treated you with kindness. How would that feel? Expanded or contracted? Now imagine that this person judged you cruelly? How would you feel? Expanded or contracted? Which way would you prefer being thought of and treated by a person you adore? Connect with your body right now. Does it adore you? So is it possible that it’s hurt by the judgments you heap upon it? Just like you would be if the person you adored judged you? What if the pain and disease in your body is actually caused by the contraction that

your body goes into when you judge it? What if there was a different possibility? What if you were to use the awareness that your body has of what is going on for it to create a new reality of body awareness? A communion between the body and the being that creates oneness, health and happiness instead of pain, suffering and disease. How would that be possible? What if being grateful and kind to your body are the keys?! When you find yourself being aware of your body by judging it, I suggest stop and find something to express gratitude to your body about. It could be as simple as, “Thank you body for being able to feel the sun on my face.” Try it, I dare you. What body awareness would that create?

WHO TAKES CARE OF THE HEALERS? By Sarah McCrum

H

ealing is a tough profession. Working all day long, often alone, with people who are sick or in crisis. The people who are attracted to healing are often very caring and give everything they’ve got to their clients – and therein lies the problem. When they give their all, day after day, they run the long-term risk of becoming exhausted, drained of energy and eventually sick – to the surprise of everyone around. How can a healer get sick? Experienced healers know that health is very dynamic and needs constant maintenance. Our body is like an instrument through which we express and experience life and if it is out of tune in any way this will compromise our quality of life. There are warning signs for all of us, and some special ones that apply to healers more than others. Negative emotions are the number one sign of things getting out of balance. Ideally we would all work on

self-healing the moment we start to experience any negativity, but in reality most people just try to push through the emotions and survive, forcing the negativity a little deeper. Feeling exhausted or drained after a day’s work is a big danger sign. Your energy has become significantly out of balance and you would be wise to look for better ways of working. You may be taking on the negative energy of your clients, which is highly risky, and healing that leaves you exhausted is lacking true power. Another sign to watch out for is if you feel you are leading your clients to make positive changes you know you are not really doing yourself. Are you walking your talk? If not, this can leave you feeling extremely uncomfortable at first, and eventually leads to feelings of fraudulence, and is very challenging to your emotional and physical health. If you are a healer it is wise to have a mentor who can support you and help

you to raise your energy, as well as help you to develop your spirituality and connection. Your biggest contribution, as a healer, is the work you do on yourself, which then radiates from you to all people you contact, whether professionally or elsewhere. To sacrifice yourself for the sake of your clients (or your family or anyone else) is to turn your back on the essence of the healing process. We are living in an age when many people are becoming interested in healing. Some suddenly discover they have a gift. Others become inspired to help others because of the healing they have received themselves. Developing excellence in healing takes dedication and time, as with any profession. And the first priority in healing work is health – your own!. Sarah McCrum runs the Heart of Healing mentorship for emerging and evolving healers. www.alkimea.co/heart-of-healing

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

Unlocking the Wisdom

of Your Body

By Fiona Hardy

T

uning in and trusting the awareness of our bodies is something I am incredibly passionate about. By having an understanding of how energy works and by gaining awareness from my own body, this has created so many shifts within me and in my life, I am truly grateful for all the insight I have gained and continue to gain through my body. The Body Consciousness system has been instrumental for me in gaining the awareness needed for my own growth and expansion. The more we can as conscious, infinite beings tap into the awareness of our own bodies, we unlock the innate wisdom our bodies love to share with us and we create the shifts we desire. This then has a flow on effect to those around us and close to us, consequently we then have the ability to really start to create our realities to be a reflection of what we desire and value. More freedom, harmony and lightness at home, at work, with friendships and relationships, money and finances, sex and intimacy, heaps of different areas can and will shift by choosing and being willing to look at behind the scenes of what is really going on. Different aspects of our lives that may not be working for us, or feel we may be self sabotaging are usually patterns / programs and stories that no longer serve us.

24

24.indd 1

The more we know ourselves and understand our neurology, become aware of when we are falling into the stories and/or patterns and programs that are not helpful or that are not our truth, that is when we can really make leaps and bounds in our growth and expansion. By gaining awareness of who we are and coming to a place within ourselves of love and acceptance of all our colours, not only do we benefit hugely, this is also healing for Earth. I believe there is so much value not only for ourselves, but also the planet in tuning into our body’s own awareness. I love to assist people with the Body Consciousness System to clear physical, emotional, chemical and energetic issues that may be causing stress/drama and holding people back from realising their full potential in creating a life they would love living. In a Body Consciousness session we look at all aspects of the body, and gain awareness from the energetic field around our body, the organs and glands, the chakras and more‌Body Consciousness also offers amazing tools and concepts that can help you to feel lighter, gain clarity and move forward. Fi is available at Circle Wellness Clinic for one on one awareness sessions in person or phone/Skype sessions.

Quit Cigarettes Forever By Heidi Edwards

A

re you sick of the never-ending spiral of being a smoker? As an ex-smoker I know it can SEEM hard to quit. The constant mind chatter of: “I want a cigarette”, “I don’t want a cigarette”, “I want to quit”, “I NEED a smoke”, feeling like you are no longer in control. I know it can SEEM difficult, and sometimes even completely useless. But having been a smoker for 15 years and now a non-smoker of seven years, I’m telling you… YOU CAN DO IT… EASILY!!! I was smoking 50, 16mg cigarettes a day! And yes I have been a non-smoker for over seven years and haven’t looked back. I can now smell the flowers and taste my food again. The most important thing to me was the smell of

my newborn son. People delight over the smell of newborn babies, but I never smelt it. When my son was born I was already a non-smoker. I could smell him!! It was so amazing!! Especially after being told that I couldn’t have children, and then having this amazing bundle of smelly baby boy in my arms!!! OMG!!! How could I ever turn back now after the quality of my life has improved so dynamically? I can help you to give up cigarettes once and for all. In 60 minutes you could be cigarette free, and it is backed by a lifetime guarantee. I BELIEVE in this program! It makes it easier for you to be a nonsmoker… for life. That is why I became a specialist, to help others quit. One

client I saw with emphysema, could breathe more easily for the first time in years after the session. Obviously it did not cure her disease, but it gave her longer life and the satisfying ability to breathe without wheezing. Another client walked out of the office saying, “what is that beautiful smell?” We discovered it was the flowers of the wisteria in the neighbouring garden. The client realised she hadn’t smelt flowers in years. If you want to smell the roses again, get your life back and have longer to enjoy it, then contact me now to find out how!

Are you feeling Stressed, Tired and Run Down? Are you wishing there was something you could do to get more energy; cope better with the many demands of your time? Or, would you just love to be a lot less stressed?

SUPPORT THE ‘MAN OF THE HOUSE’!

Meditation…

By Jeannine Stephens

By Theresa Pedersen

A

s in compass school Feng Shui, the South West of a home relates to the ‘Mother’, the North West relates to the Father. The Qi balance between these sectors is vital. Is the ‘Patriarch/Father’ of the home tired, lacking motivation, not prospering or feeling overburdened with his responsibilities? The North West (NW) sector relates to helpful people, mentors and support in your life conveying collaboration and encouragement from family, friends, work colleagues and the community, which can activate motivation to propel the man of the house forwards. If the rooms in the NW are kept attractive, clutter free and frequently used, the Qi will be supported and may bring forth inspiration for the ‘Father’, whilst receiving help when he needs it. If the NW rooms of your home are ‘missing’, contain a bathroom or bedroom, the NW ‘helpful people’ Qi is reduced and thus the Father may feel alone in life, feeling unsupported. Remedies using the elements Metal and Earth in the forms of ceramics, bronze, silver or golden metallic objects can be located in the garden in that sector. Images symbolic of the patriarch’s goals can be placed in a room in this sector. www.fengshuipower.com.au Sunshine Coast 1 & 2 day Workshops; personal & online home audits: Mobile: 0488 665 822 Email: jeannine@iinet.net.au

Who Needs It?

W

ell the answer to that is simple! Everyone! Meditation is a wonderful tool that we can incorporate very easily into our daily lives. Meditation happens consciously and unconsciously – consciously is done so with the intention of sitting quietly, breathing and relaxing; unconscious meditation occurs when we do something on ‘auto pilot’ and can’t remember doing it, for example, driving a car for many kilometres and arriving safely at your destination and not remembering or realising how you got there. Apart from the many health benefits of meditation such as lowered blood pressure, decreased stress levels and better breathing, it also allows you the opportunity to become aware of your body and your being. Becoming aware of your inner surroundings allows you to notice where you hold tension, where you have any aches or pains, whether you are shallow breathing, and where any unresolved emotions have been ‘stored’. This last point is of particular importance as unresolved ‘stored’ emotions are the cause for much disease within the mind and body. By regularly paying attention to your body and how it feels, by slowing down to notice it, you will find illness is kept at bay, unresolved issues will be released, and your health and vitality will improve, and ultimately leading to inner peace – something we all really need and want. www.mysticalessence.com.au

Is Food Your

H

Medicine?

ippocrates said “let food be thy medicine” and when we health care workers, naturopaths or whatever we are these days, ask sick people to change their diet, we get “Oh I can’t do that” or “You want me to drink water? Ha ha”. Australians are living the “party life” plain and simple. Party foods are not nourishing foods. If people needing help went on a raw vegan diet, they will see exactly what Hippocrates was talking about. After all, isn’t Hippocrates the father of medicine? I don’t think he meant bacon, cheese and donuts. The reason food is medicine is that the human body (or actually any animal body) will detoxify and repair all on its own, all it needs is for us to stop harming it with “food”. That’s why an alkalising nutritious raw vegan diet is the fastest way to health. But wait…There’s more… Something is missing…and that is Vitamin C. Of course if our bodies had the

By Ray Vozzo

missing fourth enzyme L-Gulonolactone Oxidise, we would make all the vitamin C that we’d need. Vitamin C is important while doing an alkalising raw vegan cleanse because your body will release toxins and they need to be eliminated. There is no better way to do this than with vitamin C. The best form is sodium ascorbate powder mixed in water or your favourite juice. After a while you will feel energised and will want to be more physical. You can choose whichever way you want to use this new “life”. Weight should stabilise. Overweight people will lose and underweight people should gain. For people who are overweight, food being your medicine works because it removes acidity and toxins from the body. Excess water in the tissues would no longer be needed and the cells can start producing energy again. In the underweight it works because you are putting life giving nutrients back into your body, and the

cells, muscles and organs come back to life. As we have been told a good diet requires good water. Tap water is not good water. How much is enough? As long as your urine is clear you are getting enough, that could be eight glasses more or less. Someone who eats a lot of fruit, no animals, little cooked food, might have clear urine with less glasses than someone who eats bacon, eggs, chocolate etc. This person will need more glasses than eight. So just use the colour of your urine as a guide to how much water you need. Clear is good. Yellow means more. So by letting food be your medicine, you could be soon seeing a healthier you. Oh and don’t forget to use as much organic produce as possible. Ray is a naturopath at Healthy Life in Noosa Civic Shopping Centre. Phone (07) 5473 0306.

LEUKEMIA and ME! By Lis Blake

H

ow often do we sit down and ask our bodies – ‘how do you feel?’ With our busy life-styles, we often ignore the one thing that is definitely the most important possession we own! I know I used to! Some 25 years ago, when I first started taking an interest into ‘why’ certain things occurred in my life, I was blessed to have some amazing teachers ‘fall into my lap!’ One of them was Dr. John Harrison who wrote ‘Love Your Disease It’s Keeping You Healthy’ and I was even more blessed to have the opportunity to work with him. At that time, I had managed ‘to develop’ Leukemia and I was looking for answers as to why this had happened. I can remember him saying ‘that “it” will go away when you don’t need it anymore!’ When he said that, it made no sense to me at all! Now I can happily say that with awareness and yes – much introspection – I have no symptoms and this I accomplished with no help from the medical profession. (I must add here in my work with clients, I always suggest that they seek medical advice.) I learnt pretty early on during ‘my inward journey’ that I had as a child, developed a habit of ‘getting sick’ to get my needs met and/or to ‘get out of ’ doing things I didn’t want to do. During my life, this has lead to many

uncomfortable situations regarding my body!! Since working with John, I have continued my path of discovery and have been for many years, using what I have learnt to help others overcome the ‘challenges’ that they have in their lives – mainly helping them deal with depression, anxiety, relationship problems to do with loss. Now that earth’s energies are rapidly rising with our shift into higher dimensions, many people are finding that the issues they haven’t dealt with are coming to the surface in the form of illnesses. These in some cases could be called ‘Ascension Symptoms!’ The energies now are triggering anything that still needs to be cleared on a thought/emotional/behavioural basis and our bodies are our amazing messengers and teachers! They always have been, but now, more so than ever! We are being forced to take notice of them! We can connect to them in many ways – spend time in nature, meditate, get in the ocean – which is my favourite! Learn to talk your body and listen to it asking you for help! Lis Blake is the owner of ‘Skills For Living For Life’ and has worked for 25 years as a Counsellor on the Sunshine Coast. She is holding workshops helping people through Earth’s energy shift – www.skillsforlivingforlife.com.au

Transforming Sex into Love

O

ur deepest yearning as human beings (beyond basic needs of food, safety and shelter) is to love and be loved. And yet for many couples, after a time, sex and love can become strangers to each other, to the point where they often may not even co-exist. Where does the Love go? We often look to our intimate partner to provide that ultimate fulfillment of deep physical love. However, having to rely or depend on another to fulfil us sexually, to bring us to a place of connection, of feeling whole again, will always leave us with an element of neediness. This neediness means that we are always seeking outside ourselves. Instead of coming from a sense of presence, wholeness and trust, we develop unconscious strategies in the hope to secure love or affection. This can also make us ungrounded in our body and our being. You can feel it when

By Janet McGeever

someone is pulling at you energetically and the first thing you naturally do is you want to pull away. Whereas if the other person is present within themselves, connected to their own being and heart, then you will naturally want to move towards them. So how do you stop coming from neediness in a sexual relationship and start coming from a place of love and wholeness? The answer lies in taking the focus off your partner and back onto you and being so at home within your own body, so connected to you and your own heart first, before you even begin to make love. There are two main keys to truly being more at home in your body – Movement and Stillness. Moving your body through slow movement practices such as yoga and chi gung and more vigorous movement like walking, running, dancing or shaking. Slower practices help you enter

the body more consciously and the more vigorous movement, can help you release stored emotions that can be like an armour over the body – not nice for making love! It’s not like you do this every time before you make love, but if one or more of these are part of your daily routine, you will find it easier and more natural to bring the focus back to yourself and to feel at home in your body. Finally, when you do come together to make love, sit quietly with yourself, close you eyes, relax your body. Simply be still. Bring your awareness to your breath, your heart, your desire to share love. Then you are more likely to discover the love and innocence that lies within yourself and your own body. Love becomes a free gift without conditions or neediness. And in this way, you can transform sex into love. www.theconsciousheart.com www.makingloveretreat.com.au

The Life of a

Portrait and Landscape Artist By Carolyne Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy

A

rt has always been my devoted passion alongside my love of horses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is probably how it all started (when I was little, I was always drawing horses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; today I have four!) And my love of my art has led me to becoming a professional portrait artist and more recently I have been asked to do a wall mural for the popular Daisyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Place Restaurant. I remember in the early days, the great feeling of contentment when I was outside drawing something of interest or throwing the watercolours onto the special Archerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper and letting the colours glide together. One day I put on a show at the markets and released a drawing of one of my sons (when he was small) - I immediately got a couple of orders from people wanting the same for their children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it was the beginning

of a great career of being a professional portrait artist. Then I had my own gallery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fig Tree Art Gallery at Old Petrie Town under the massive fig trees and I also taught a large number of students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while displaying and selling my portraits at shopping centres and the weekend markets. Incredibly, word of mouth became so strong that my portraits went all around the world to Germany, Russia, America, New Zealand, and Canada and of course all around Australia. Like everything that reaches a peak it has to eventually taper off and it was time for a break. But in retrospect I regret taking a break from my art. I moved further out of town and got into sales work for several years before the desire to paint really came back and I then moved onto painting on large canvases with oil

What the Body Can Teach us in Business By Angelle Laurence

H

aving coached hundreds of highly successful people, I can tell you the secrets of those who develop a mastery of body awareness, and the significant difference this makes. Body awareness provides an extraordinary amount of information, insight and understanding of yourself and others. It can lead to astounding self-growth, contribution to others and with that, business success. Authors such as Louise Hay and Catherine Ponder have provided excellent information and concepts about developing our body awareness and its direct relationship to healing. Adapting this information for our approach to business takes our personal empowerment to a whole new paradigm. The first secret is body awareness goes way beyond clichĂŠ body language techniques and gimmicky, insincere tricks to beguile others. It begins with

34

34.indd 1

an awareness of what your own body is telling you about a person or situation and what that means for you. It begins with developing your powers of selfobservation, and observation of others. Start developing your body awareness by noticing how you are feeling and reacting as you go about your day. Simply stop at random times during your day and notice your body, your emotions and your thoughts. Take down a few notes to review after a week. Where do you feel your reactions in your body? Is it one part of your body or a few favorites? Notice both the tense and uncomfortable body feelings along with the vital and energized. What are you doing or who are you with in relation to these feelings you are experiencing? Notice the emotions you experience in relation to the reaction in your body and name them. Is there a pattern? Is there a constant theme? Do you mainly move between two or three key emotions? Do you like the results? What do you need to acknowledge

about yourself and the situation to improve or enhance it? The second secret now you are aware of this deep and seemingly automatic connection between your emotions, body and thoughts, is to observe how it impacts others and your business success. Take time to stop and ask yourself what am I feeling; what thoughts am I thinking; and therefore what messages both consciously and unconsciously am I sending? The third secret is you can change this by understanding and resolving the information your body gives you and what that means to you and this business situation. Our bodies provide a wealth of untapped information about what we truly believe and want from a business situation, uncensored by our logic. The art of success lies in blending both this form of body intuition we can develop with our logic and business knowhow to create a sense of vitality and alignment for our business. www.peoplefuturist.com

air Trade is not a new concept. In fact it is the way that business was done long before there was a discount store on every corner. Companies that adhere to a fair trade approach provide a fair price for goods and services, safe working conditions for employees and a commitment to environmentally sustainable production. “Many people don’t realise that unless your fashion is Fair Trade or Made In Australia, chances are it has not been manufactured ethically. In its most basic form, Fair Trade amounts to what we would call ‘Occupational Health & Safety’ and ‘Fair work for fair pay,” says Alice Jones, co-founder of Sunshine Coast ethical fashion label Sinerji. Going beyond the basics of buying and selling, fair trade practice provides a holistic approach to empowering

disadvantaged communities by supporting welfare programs, healthcare, education and training. While it’s quite easy to find fair trade coffee and chocolate these days, it’s a little more difficult to find fair trade fashion. Below are some of my favourite places to find fair trade fashion and products. One Colour An Australian ethical fashion label, One Colour has been working with a small community in Kenya since the brand’s inception. The connections between maker and designer are built on respect and a desire to establish long-term employment in Africa. “With on-going employment people can make plans for tomorrow rather than just have enough to live on for today,” says One Colour founder, Di Stitt.

Vegan? Wear it too!

or many giving up meat can be more than the average chore, but for a large portion of Australians not consuming any animal produce is not just a plan but a Joy! Veganism has grown over the years and is encouraging more of us to think twice about the way we live. Founder of 100% Vegan, Ray Pastoors promotes this concept and gives others the opportunity to experience veganism

for themselves and at their own pace. Ray brings the vegan community closer with vegan gear in the form of footwear, green toys, thongs and clothing. The vegan range is sourced from “specific suppliers that meet ethical practices set forth by 100% Vegan”. The Business is mainly known for the 100% vegan sneaker made with no animal glues or fats. Unlike most shoes, Ray explains that

being vegan is one thing but “wearing and making it part of your lifestyle is a major part of it too,” he says. The trend for the vegan lifestyle is ever growing and to continue the trend, Ray and his team are encouraging nonvegans, vegetarians and even omnivores to also give up animal produce in the name of charity. As a passionate activist for animal welfare Ray explains that the charity chosen is Orangutan Project. Ray says, “they do great work and adopting orangutan Wigly last year inspired me to do a lot more”. Ray is now leading the way along with his Sydney friend Krystle to actively encourage others to become vegan. (To find out more visit www. orangeforvegans.com.au and register for this 30 day challenge). Veganism is one step further to reality once you put the action in place. Whether it is for a healthy lifestyle or your compassion for the environment or animals – regardless of the reason, now is the time to go vegan in 2013. www.vegansneaker.com

Two rescue dogs inspire online pet supply business! everywhere she goes. She has a very happy personality and loves pats. Minnie was adopted in 2012 and enjoys her regular adventures living life with Max. Max was adopted from the RSPCA as a puppy. Max has very loyal characteristics and thrives on close human contact. Max loves the water, enjoys the beach and loves his car rides. Most pet foods on the market have a very direct and obvious effect on the condition and wellbeing of many dogs and cats. Australian-made Black Hawk Super Premium Holistic Pet Food is scientifically developed and formulated from an holistic approach incorporating only the very best natural ingredients of human grade quality for the health and wellbeing of your dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Many pet foods claim to be complete, balanced, premium and nutritious. All it takes is a quick glance at the ingredient list to know this may not be the case, and many of the benefits claimed on the pack, may not match the main ingredients listed. The Australian manufacturers of Black Hawk take their ingredients very

seriously and ensure all their pet foods are not only complete and balanced, but highly nutritious. Minnie and Max also are stockists of the Australian handmade organic treat range from Waggy Dog Bakehouse. Your dog’s tail will be wagging for more when they taste these freshly baked organic low allergen treats. Using free range eggs these treats are grain, gluten, corn, soyfree and dairy free and contain no added sugar, preservatives or artificial colours. If you’re looking for a natural alternative in grooming products then you just can’t go past the divine smell and calming qualities of Bone & Soul. The organic spa range of shampoos and conditioners is completely Australian made using traditional aromatherapy. Targeting various conditions and needs in dogs naturally, the products are very popular for dogs that have sensitive skin and can be flea and tick repelling when used. Bone & Soul products are free from any toxic chemicals or insecticides and are cruelty-free, vegan friendly with no added GMO ingredients. All containers

are enviro-friendly, biodegradable and recyclable. Being involved in the rescue and rehoming of companion animals is something Minnie and Max prides itself on. Responsible pet ownership and education is very much key to the everyday operations of the brand. Over the past few months the business has given back to the animal community through various donations which have helped support the work of rescue organisations throughout South East Queensland. Some of these organisations are Pets without Partners, Fresh Start Rescue Incorporated, Australian Working Dog Rescue and Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge. Minnie and Max will soon be releasing an eco-friendly range of toys and accessories manufactured from natural fibres such as hemp and organic cotton. www.minnieandmax.com.au or email sales@minnieandmax.com.au for more information.

Simple Stretches By Mary-Lou Stephens

I

t started with three simple stretches. Actually, let me back up a little. It started at A Chorus Line. As I watched the dancers on stage I was struck by the thought, “I’d like to have what they have. I’d like to be that lithe, that flexible.” Flexibility has never been my strong point, either physically or emotionally. A sports doctor once told me that my flexibility was the worst he’d ever encountered in a woman. He said it was bad even for a bloke! I’ve tried to do something about it in the past and ended up in tears, feeling like a two-year-old in a world she doesn’t understand. Some days after A Chorus Line, when walking the dog, I saw a sign outside a house. A sign I had never seen before. It was for something called physio yoga. I wrote down the number and made an appointment. This is where the three simple stretches come in. At the appointment I told Sarah, the physiotherapist, that I would like my body to be more flexible, that I would love to become more aware of my body and I really wasn’t sure how. I also warned her that when I’d seen physios in the past, after I’d injured my knee and when I had a frozen shoulder, they just loaded me up with exercises that I’d resent having to do and would stop doing at the earliest opportunity. She suggested three simple stretches I could do every day and that I come along to one of her physio yoga classes and see if it suited me. Easy. I could do

that. And I did. Three simple stretches every day. And everyday my awareness of my body increased. I went to one of her classes and instead of feeling like a clumsy fat dolt as I had in past yoga classes, I felt looked after. She was a physio, I was her client, I didn’t have to prove anything to anyone. I could relax. She has a Pilates reformer bed and I asked if I could have some sessions. She guided me through and I started being able to use it on my own. My body loves it; stretching, sliding, pressing and all with an incredible sense of support. I have struggled with my weight from the age of eight. Sometimes fat, sometimes slim but always battling my own body. Through these three simple stretches and the things they have led to, I’ve realised that I’m like a child when it comes to my body. I need to be helped, guided, given gentle encouragement. Instead I have been a tyrant, abusive and cruel. Never aware. Just bossy and thoughtless. It was a revelation to me that I could have a greater connection with my body, not through food and diets, this fad or another, but through movement. Through gentle, supported, nourishing movement. Through three simple stretches. Mary-Lou’s meditation memoir will be released in April by Pan Macmillan. Find out more at www.maryloustephens.com.au

Year of The Water Snake: Transforming Yourself By Ri Richard chard h dG Giles, iles, As Astrologer stro t loge er a and nd F Feng en ng Sh Shu S Shui ui P Practitioner r ctit rac tittione tition iion io one on err

W

elcome to the Chinese New Year of 2013. It began on Sunday 10th February at the New Moon. The New Year begins with the slippery and philosophical Snake. Chinese tradition employs both Solar and Lunar calendars and the New Moon day of the 10th begins all the official Lunar New Year celebrations and parties. Those born in the Snake year are considered intelligent and philosophical people who give out a calm and peaceful demeanour and love stability. When motivated they will move heaven and earth to achieve what they are after. SNAKE QUALITIES and MYTHOLOGY The Snake, the Chinese say, is one of the great animals of the planet and is the sign of creation, dreams and magic. The Snake is the companion of sorcerers and seers and its symbol is the circle, and thus it pertains to the infinite and to all esoteric knowledge. In the eastern cultures the Snake represents Kudalini energy which is the subtle energy that

circulates from the base of the spine to the top of the skull connecting all the vital centres in the body. The awakening of Kundalini energy is one of the decisive steps in spiritual unfolding, arousing your subtle powers and developing ESPs such as clairvoyance and telepathy. It offers you the insight necessary to understand the world from a greater level. People born in the year of the Snake are often very sophisticated and cultured in their choices for the home. They are elegant and graceful and place emphasis on their comfort when deciding what to decorate with. They are materialistic and often need to have as many of everything as possible. Their years are – 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025. Snakes are generally people of refinement who adore ancient objects, inlaid furniture and delicately coloured Persian carpets, preferably just a little worn. Their taste is faultless, they understand the harmony of colour and shape. Wherever they go they must

redecorate to suit tastes. This is why it is difficult to live with a Snake because they have trouble adapting to tastes that are not their own. Snakes get on well with Oxen, Monkeys, Goats, Dragons, Rabbits, and Roosters. They are reasonable with Rats, Dogs and Horses. They have trouble with other Snakes (they can’t live together), Tigers and Pigs. The worst relationship problems are often with Tigers and other Snakes. On the economy, the Snake Fire element is a driving force behind the stock market. Each of the Five Chinese Elements affects people’s moods. Fire is joy, Water is fear, Earth is meditation and nurturance, Metal is sadness and Wood is anger. A Fire year then generates optimism and helps drive up the stock market. Since 2008 there has not been any real economic recovery as Fire has been absent. However, the Fire Snake arriving in 2013, can bring genuine substantial improvement in our economic situation. www.richardgiles.info
