From the Creator of HBM...


e have a ‘self-care and creativity’ feature for this month’s edition and what a joy it was to create this with an inspiring group of contributors and our amazing team (not to mention having Kim Morrison, ‘Queen of Self-Care’ on our cover). I love how we create our lives in every moment, and it doesn’t have to be with a paint brush or microphone in our hand, it can be with the seeds of inspiration and imagination that we take our next step. Self-care can mean different things to different people. It’s funny sometimes when I get a renewed sense of enthusiasm and remember the original reasons I created this magazine from scratch, it takes me on a journey where amazing things show up, that I wasn’t expecting! It’s a joy! Sometimes people ask me, are you going to take it easy and slow down a bit at the

end of the year? And yes I will definitely have some navel gazing time during November and the festive season, in fact, I love jumping in the ocean and having a go at some stand up paddle boarding in a leisurely way. At the same time, creating, exploring and experiencing is part of what makes me feel alive. This is a generative experience, it is not a ‘slugging away behind a desk for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week’ and feeling stressed, sick and run down. So I would encourage you to ask yourself, what makes you feel alive? What other ways do you nurture yourself? What is fun for you? And what if your creativity with your self-care, is a giant gift to you, your loved ones and the planet?

his coleslaw is packed full of nutritious veggies. The dressing is light and full of flavour and the coleslaw was the perfect side dish at Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s Sunday gatherings. You do not have to use all the veggies listed in the recipe and I’ve suggested amounts as a guideline only. Use your favourite combinations and come up with your own super-duper signature coleslaw. You can grate or julienne the veggies and cut the cabbage a fine as you like. NOTE: I usually make the salad a few hours in advance so the flavours can mingle. If you have any leftovers it’s great to add to wraps and sandwiches, or serve it with some cooked chicken or seafood for a healthy lunch or dinner choice. TIP: Try adding finely chopped red bell pepper (capsicum), a little ginger, sesame seeds and a touch of roasted sesame oil to the recipe for variety. The dressing gives a great tangy flavour to this dish and you can also use it for other salads or on steamed veggies and fish.

Serves 6-8. Makes approx. 6-8 cups. Prep time 25-30 minutes. Ingredients: 2 cups finely shredded green and/or purple cabbage 1 cup peeled and grated carrot ½ cup grated zucchini ½ cup peeled and grated broccoli stems 1 apple (1 cup) grated 1 medium spring (green) onion, chopped 3 tbsp finely chopped parsley or cilantro (coriander) ¼ cup each sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds (optional) COCONUT CITRUS DRESSING: ½ cup coconut milk ½ cup fresh orange or tangerine juice 2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice 2 tsp maple syrup or honey (to taste) 1 tbsp coconut aminos (optional) ½ tsp sea salt (to taste) Freshly ground pepper (to taste) 1-2 drops Young Living Culinary lemon, lime, orange, tangerine and/or lemongrass oil

Gluten Free Health Cafe & Bakery

Method: 1. Mix all the salad dressing ingredients together in a small bowl or blender and set aside or chill until needed. 2. Place all veggies, herbs and seeds in a large mixing bowl. Pour dressing over and gently mix to combine. Check for seasoning and add more salt, pepper and citrus juice if desired. Serve immediately or chill for a couple of hours to let the flavours combine, or for up to 2 days.

product review



attended one of Don Tolman’s free talks about nine years ago and brought most of my family along with me, which was inspiring and a revelation. We were fascinated with Don’s wisdom, passion and his self-care journey to find the keys to great health, longevity and happiness. Don’s search took him all around the globe to eventually find and create the sacred food from ancient times called ‘Pulse’. Pulse is a complete whole food meal, handcrafted from a delicious mix of dried fruits, nuts, seeds and grains, made to an exact recipe that Don discovered on an ancient scroll after his 17-year search. Made in Australia, 100% plantbased and suitable for vegan, raw food and gluten-free diets, graze on Pulse as a nourishing snack, meal replacement or as part of a detox cleanse.

Some of the most brilliant minds in history ate Pulse on a daily basis for supreme health and vitality, including Pythagoras and Leonardo Da Vinci. This month I ‘road tested’ the tropical and the cherry coco natural flavoured Pulse and found them both to be very moreish. In fact, there are seven different flavours to choose from (my favourite was the tropical mix) and one bag of Pulse Raw Food can last you one full day with no extra food required, or you can use it as a snack between meals for a few days. I believe eating the pulse as a snack regularly over two weeks was a contribution to my digestion and it’s left me with a ‘satisfied’ feeling with a reduced appetite. THE DIVINE FACE AND BODY CREAM When I initially read the ingredients on the jar, I thought to myself, this is going to be too rich for my skin, I hope I don’t break out. What I discovered

was that the skin on my face and body absorbed it quickly and I have been using it for two weeks with no breakouts and it has been nourishing for my face, and the skin on my arms and legs feels so much smoother and hydrated. I love that it has a non-greasy formula and made with organic ingredients. The lemon fragrance is soothing and refreshing and the whipped consistency feels like a very decadent and luxurious way of treating your whole body to bliss. Don says this all over body skin food is a non-toxic, pre-tanning agent; it feeds and repairs blemished skin; and makes a soothing after-shave balm. And you know it’s good for you when you can even spread it on your toast and eat it! Out of all the face/body creams I’ve tried, this cream has really impressed me.

s an holistic doctor, I look at every aspect in life to maintain health. Self-care is essential to keep ourselves sane. But what does selfcare really mean? In health care, self-care is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated. Some put self-care on a continuum with health care providers at the opposite end to self-care. In modern medicine, preventive medicine aligns most closely with self-care. My medical practice involves guiding my patients to make the necessary changes to their lifestyles to prevent illness. Unfortunately, a lot of people come when they are already sick, making things much more difficult to restore their body functions. This is exactly what we want to prevent. People have different preferences in life, running around with a busy schedule without realising that time flies and getting into an unhealthy routine, creates the environment to get sick. It is extremely important to have time

out and disconnect from the rat race. I personally find it essential to reconnect with nature, as this is where we come from. Recently I went on a trip to the Simpson Desert and when I told a few people, some looked at me with disbelief. Going to a really remote area is an amazing experience where there is nothingness, just sky and dirt, to recharge the batteries and get away from the monotonous daily routine. And camping by an open fire, being able to watch the stars while you are curled up in your sleeping bag, makes the trip worthwhile. MY PERSONAL SELF-CARE TIPS: • Start with clean water and real food to nourish your body and mind. Select organic, unprocessed foods; nothing in a packet or that has lots of numbers and names that you can’t pronounce. Check out one of my favourite recipes, ‘Sausages with onion gravy’ p232 from the ‘The Complete Gut Health Cookbook’ by Pete Evans and Helen Padarin. • Get in contact with nature where

you are surrounded with nothing ‘material’. Explore different areas where you have never been before, awakening the curiosity of the mind in the search of new experiences. • Take time out of your daily routine and grant yourself a holiday; it does not have to be expensive! The simpler, the more enjoyable. Cycling and hiking are my favourites! • I recently started challenging myself with new movement exercises where the co-ordination of body and mind have to engage as one to get the right results. Things like slack lining, hand stands, back bends, juggling, to name a few, turn on different areas in your brain that might not have been developing in the past. I train with Leigh Stalker at Noosa Strength Centre. • Spend time with your loved ones, family, friends and don’t forget about your best friend, ‘the dog’. My Chihuahua ‘Lupita’ always makes me smile after a long, busy day. www.ibukihealth.com.au

This is why your GUT


are not your fault

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


aintaining proper balance of healthy gut flora is a crucial yet widely misunderstood component of human health. I’m all for personal accountability when it comes to health, but sometimes things happen outside of our control that have longterm consequences on our body. Here’s a few reasons why you’re not to blame for your tummy troubles. IT ALL STARTS AT CHILDBIRTH Your immune system undergoes major development during infancy, and two of the biggest factors influencing your microbiome are delivery and feeding methods. During natural delivery, direct contact with the mother’s vaginal and intestinal flora can help build a colony of beneficial bacteria in the gut of the newborn. Because babies delivered by C-section don’t have this direct contact, bacteria colonies instead reflect strains that can be found on the skin or in hospitals. Considering the propensity to develop certain diseases can be influenced by your immune system, the makeup of a newborn’s gut

microbiome may be more important than we realise. YOU ARE WHAT YOU DRINK Just as adults who eat probioticrich fermented foods generally have a microbiome with a wider variety of beneficial bacteria, infants that are breast-fed have a distinctly different gut flora to those that are bottle-fed. Breast milk contains a type of prebiotic that facilitates the growth of bacteria such as Bifidobacterium, which is likely why breast-fed infants have a higher level of this bacteria in their gut. Interestingly, babies who are fed a combination of breast and bottle are more likely to have a gut bacteria composition that resembles exclusively bottle-fed rather than exclusively breast-fed. THESE GENES DON’T FIT If your biological family have eaten a low-fibre diet over several generations, this can lead to the extinction of certain strains of bacteria in YOUR gut? This indicates that health problems could compound with each new generation, as this generational loss of bacterial diversity cannot be rectified with a

yummy goodness... we create yummy...

short-term recalibration to a high-fibre diet. This is why it’s important to eat a healthy, nutritious diet that includes a wide variety of prebiotics and probiotics – not only for your own health, but also for the impact it may have on the gut bacteria profile of your children and grandchildren in the future. SIDE-EFFECT BLUES Our overuse and abuse of antibiotics may be causing serious long-term consequences that we are only now becoming more aware of. When you take a course of antibiotics, it does not just seek out the problem bacteria in your body and attack those; many of your beneficial strains of bacteria are destroyed when you take this medication too. This is why it is imperative to be taking a probiotic supplement during this time to give your gut microbiome the best support and chance at rebuilding once you complete your antibiotics. Remember, even a single course of antibiotics can permanently alter your gut flora. www.sunshinecolonics.com.au

f I was asked to think of an individual who personifies the concept of selfcare and creativity, Kim Morrison would fit the bill. Kim is the founder of Twenty8, a natural range of skincare and organic essential oils, passionate educator and advocate for self-care, and author who has published five books and is working on her sixth, in addition to launching a unique set of inspirational aromatherapy cards this month. Kim has 12

dedicated her life to sharing the concept of self-care as a daily ritual and act of self-love. Kim embraced an holistic approach to health as a teenager. She was a competitive athlete, representing Australia in ultra-marathon running, and has always strived to be the best she could possibly be. It was during these early years of training and enduring gruelling marathons, that she would observe her thoughts were not always kind during challenging times. These have been some of her greatest teachers

and she encourages others to discover the gifts in challenges. “I’m yet to meet a person, who has not had struggles or challenges, or believed they were not good enough or worthy enough. My question is, if that is part of being human, why is it that we struggle with the struggle so much? We all know when we are in those challenging hard times, that once we can come out of the vortex, that many times we actually find the greatest lessons, even gifts.” Kim’s fascination with human

c th fi e c w w a




behaviour, coupled with her passion for plants, herbs and oils, has enabled her to make a difference in the lives of others, as well as leaving a lasting legacy for her family and loved ones. Kim has been an aromatherapist for 26 years, but this interest began at a very young age. “My love of plants has been there since I was a young girl. It began with my grandmothers actually, one was a gardener, and had green fingers. And my other grandmother was a baker and a lover of food. I was very lucky to have grandparents that taught me the power of food and the power of nature.” Armed with this knowledge, and inspired every day by the people around her, as well as her own family, Kim writes, speaks and teaches the art of selflove. “We are all told that in order to love others, we must first love ourselves. But no one seems to give us the magic formula on how to do that. And whilst it is easy when life is going great, it seems particularly difficult to love yourself when you are going through a challenging time. In fact, it is usually during these times, we tend to fall completely out of love with ourselves. “What I’ve found is that it is all about the ebb and flow. Trusting it is all a process, one moment, one breath, one day at a time.” On investigating the ‘how’ Kim has found the first step back to self-love, back to that core, is actually awareness of being in that self-sabotaging space, or that we are in that place of darkness, whatever that dark space looks like. This can be grief, loss, guilt, or it can be detrimental bad words about ourselves, shame, hurt, anger, resentment or fear. When you are aware that you are in that space, what you can focus on is self-care, which can be in any form. It can be a two second ritual, like spritzing with an essential oil spray; it can be putting bare feet on the sand or the grass; it can be reading an affirmation; and it doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money. It is being mindful of doing something nice. Kim believes that given the right circumstances, anything is possible for the human spirit, and it’s not about quick fixes or New Year promises that are easily broken. “I think it’s more about a continual evolvement and a realisation we are all trying to do the best we can, we just need some tools to support us and help keep us on the self-love track.” Kim has found that through writing

books, and creating new ways of sharing her message of self-care, it allows her to practise what she preaches on a daily basis. “I’m very open with my team, my family and my friends. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. I realise sometimes I get it completely right and sometimes I can get it quite wrong. There are times I’m on a pedestal for many and for some there are times I completely fall off. There are moments when I feel like the ocean and there are moments when I feel more like I’m drowning in it. Some days I look out and wonder why I do what I do and there are days I receive a message and know exactly why I do what I do. Some days I love myself to bits, and some days I wonder if I’ll ever be enough. “I often work really hard and then wonder though if it’s really smart. Sometimes there are mistakes and wrong choices, but thankfully there are times of joy and no looking back. I have come to understand some will talk about me in ways that do not serve me, and I have to appreciate those that do, have not walked in my shoes or carry what I do. Sadly, even unknowingly, there is criticism and judgment, and when I hear it I am shocked and feel so much hurt and go into that dark place. I have to take care of myself and remember that thankfully there are sweet surprises, kind hearts and unbelievable love and loyalty too. “I realise some see me as a fearless leader and others see flaws and fears. Some will say I’m too open and share way too much, others see those sharings and as open-hearted vulnerabilities and strengths. I angst at all the suffering in the world and I marvel in all the magic it possesses too. I have come to learn that even though my number one driver may be kindness and care, some people will never share that same drive and neither will they care. “As an entrepreneur, I may feel I have the best products, the most amazing education and beautiful business in the world yet no matter what I have, how much I give and all that I share, many will never see it in the same light, or fully appreciate how much it means to be supported when you’re a small business. “There are days that as a woman I feel beautiful, sexy, intelligent, aware, spiritual and on fire, and then suddenly there are moments I am reduced to the likeliness of a red-faced toddler throwing a tantrum. As a mum, I can feel incredible and love it with my absolute


heart, life and soul and yet within seconds, I can feel a complete failure and the most useless mother and human being on the planet. “As I navigate my path in this thing called life with a desire to give as much as I can and with an intent to give it my best, I realise that for some, it will never be enough. And there are some days I wonder if it is just me? Or do others happen to feel this way too? I am learning the importance of celebrating the wins, the milestones, the fun. I am also learning in times of challenge and struggle to not ask, ‘What have I done wrong?’ But instead ask, ‘What is the learning, what is the lesson here?’” Wouldn’t it be grand if we could just be, do and give our best, take a breath and be proud of who we are in the moment? Kim often believes it is important to celebrate the perfect imperfections. Maybe learn to trust it is all as it should be. Kim’s sixth book is due for release in 2018, and launched this month are her unique set of inspirational Aroma Cards which are about blending ancient plant wisdom, modern science and intuition, and have been designed to support you through the highs and certainly the lows of life. Kim believes that ultimately selfcare and being kind is one of the most important aspects of self-love. Daily selfcare rituals will help us to continue to move toward a goal or desire, despite the challenges we face along the way. “These cards are an act of self-care. Along with pure essential oils they can help override any obstacle and help lead you back to being in love with you,” she says. www.twenty8.com www.kimmorrison.com Holistic Bliss | NOVEMBER 2017 |

Tuning into what


WORDS JEAN SHEEHAN, Principal – Millennium Education

Do as I do, not as I say’! When it comes to self-care these should be the words adults practise in their life when looking after and empowering children. Children learn best and accurately when they watch their parents, teachers and carers. They mimic our actions. Between the ages of 0-7 years is imprint age, which means children will have our imprint of how we behave and look after ourselves. Between 7-14 years children will mimic us in self-care. Ages 14-21 children may do everything that is socially unacceptable in self-care but that is part of their lessons in becoming themselves. And for the rest of their lives they have an abundance of opportunities to learn what self-care is to them. As this journey is so individualised. My profound learning of self-care was how to NOT care for myself. Having grown up in a mentally, emotionally, verbally and physically abusive environment, I learnt how to suppress emotions, how to not speak up, how to eat bad foods, how to not look after my body. I felt worthless and thought selfcare was about survival of the fittest. The

memory that sticks in my mind is how my Mum died at 43 years old, as she did not care for herself. This was a harsh lesson at age 16 for me to experience. This became my foundation until my mid-twenties, where I became suicidal and was blessed to be gifted the awareness of self-development books, courses, and caring people. I unlearnt what I ‘knew’ and tried many systems, techniques and ‘things’ for self-care. Some worked, some didn’t. I needed to know what self-care was for me – how did it feel, what did it look like, what were the outcomes, was it okay to do this. I have learnt self-care is of the mind, body and spirit. It is boundary setting, it is saying YES to all opportunities and deciding later if I want to pursue it. It is being able to say no without feeling guilty. It’s allowing myself to STOP and do nothing. It’s goal setting. It’s listening to my intuition. It’s nurturing my body with great food. It’s exercising – that makes me feel fabulous. It’s walks along the beach with my dog, Zac. It is having fun. It’s giving no reasons, excuses,

explanations to anyone. It’s loving me… the whole of me, no matter what. Today I ask you to be the example of what is possible for your children that are in your life. You are worth it. The children are worth it. If you don’t care for you, who will?!

Does your body like its




ctually, it does! And flossed! It’s part of how bodies enjoy being nurtured! So what about seeing the dentist? Actually, your body enjoys getting a good clean and polish up! Provided, that is, you have a dentist you like and feel comfortable with! That’s an essential part of selfnurture – finding people your body feels nurtured by to assist you to care for it. Our bodies know they like touching us – and the mouth is a very intimate and sensitive area. It’s not surprising that many people don’t enjoy or look forward to going to the dentist. It’s in the Top 10 Fears list along with death, flying and public speaking! A lot of people associate going to the dentist with pain, discomfort and expense. And yet, a healthy mouth free of decay is a key to not just health, but longevity and is about so much more than appearances!

Up to 80% of disorders in the body can be traced to the health, or lack thereof, in the mouth. The whole mouth, or periodontal cavity, can also be a rich ground for limitations, fears, judgments, and self-esteem issues. Add to this all the lifetimes we may have endured accidents, gum disease, rotting teeth, and tooth extraction without anaesthesia. For many people just the smell of the dentist’s office and the sound of the drill is enough to induce anxiety and stress! About three years ago, in the midst of some painful teeth problems, I discovered the work of American dentist Dr Tom Kolso who, realising something else must be possible for teeth and gums, began developing Happy Mouth™ Generative Energetic Dentistry about 20 years ago. It’s not a substitute for going to the dentist, or for brushing or flossing daily. The system acknowledges that

your body has inherent systems for regeneration of gum, bone and even teeth that have become dormant or shut down. With Happy Mouth hands-on sessions, these systems can be activated and restored to full functioning. I had no idea that anything other than “drill, fill or extract” was possible for my teeth. I assumed decay, worndown teeth, receding gums and eventual loss of teeth was inevitable as you aged. It simply isn’t true! I personally have had and seen amazing results from having the Happy Mouth hands-on sessions to activate the dormant systems which repair teeth, receded gums and much more. This system is actually as much about self-care and longevity as it is about getting out of pain and discomfort in the mouth and jaw. Now the Happy Mouth World Wide Coordinator – you can find SHAUNA at www.yourhappymouth.com with classes in Australia and the world.


Generative Energetic Dentistry

NO MORE PAIN, DECAY OR GUM DISEASE Is it possible to regrow teeth, gums and bone? Modern dentistry says this is not possible. Is that true or a big fat lie? Your mouth is the gateway to the health of your body. Dentist Dr Tom Kolso’s Happy Mouth includes 16 head points which activate dormant systems in the body related not only to the mouth but the youth, vitality and longevity of the body.

Four ways to access Happy Mouth: 1. Private hands-on sessions with a Happy Mouth Practitioner 2. Attend the next live class with Dr Tom – Atlanta USA November 3. Buy the recordings of a live class with Dr Tom 4. Attend a Happy Mouth Hands-On Intro with Shauna Teaken and learn 5 of the points to start taking care of Tooth Decay and Gum Health NOW – Brisbane, Rio De Janeiro, Noosa and Tokyo

The Systems and Points include:

• Dontal Generative System – for the health of the whole mouth • Bone Restorative System – regenerating and strengthening bone • TMJ Restorative & Generative Systems – bruxism, grinding, jaw pain • Tooth Bud Activation – re-growing teeth • Lymphatic Restorative System • Gingival Restorative & Generative Systems – gum recession and health • Salivary Glands Restorative System • Hair Regeneration Point • Tooth Structural Integrity for chipped, cracked, damaged teeth • Youthening Point – activating anti-ageing systems • Awareness Point • Insight Point • Balance & Smart Points CONTACT: Shauna Teaken, World Wide Coordinator for Happy Mouth

The road to being




ully honouring the path of the soul takes faith! Trusting the universe is a challenge, there are no guarantees, you’ve heard all the cliches, said them, and probably repeated them as affirmations but have you stopped, truly stopped all the internal and external noise, doubts and fears to feel it? I’m not talking about for a few seconds or minutes or a fleeting thought through your mind as something unattainable but acknowledging and creating your path is having the faith to live it. If this is difficult, know you are not alone, the planet is full of people existing in fear, going through the motions every day, not so blissfully unaware. Healing is continual, you may have big a-ha moments and lots of little ones in between. I have had enormous amounts of pain balance in a treatment but the one thing that changed so much for me was trusting myself. From childhood, I have been a healer, however, my self-esteem wasn’t


16.indd 1

so great. All the times I had been right about people, events and situations, still wasn’t enough confirmation for me; in treatments I still held back information channelled to me, for fear of being wrong. Yes that’s right, I was making it about me not the client. From the moment I chose to trust myself and to trust the universe was not having a laugh, everything changed. I now express every word, image, taste, smell or feeling I am given. I am fulfilling my purpose of healing, supporting and assisting others and there is a sense of balance I had not felt before. Finding your path is not hard, you are already on it! If you are discontented with the direction, reflect on the weave of your life, you will see your purpose; like the sun reflecting on the water it will catch your attention. Work towards bringing more of that balance into your life, slowly is good! If you can’t chuck in your current job, honour it as providing, while you make changes. Weed out the people you need

to and if they’re family, remember we learn the most from them. All experiences you have are part of your learning, nothing is wasted. In times of challenge and difficulty, you learn to discover and live who you are not and who you have been told you are by family or society. Knowing what you don’t want, can produce an epiphany or slowly bring soul awareness. Be gentle with yourself, treat yourself with the kindness you would give to those closest to you. Follow yourself, not a guru, listen to what resonates, bring it into your life, value yourself and others for where they are. You, my friend are loved and supported by the universe. I would like to express my deepest respect for anyone reading this that has experienced and is still living with deep trauma; healing is a process that needs to be acknowledged as individual, not as a quick fix, nor judged by others. www.amandamackay.com.au

The #1 thing that STOPS CREATIVITY (and everything) in its tracks! WORDS RIKKA ZIMMERMAN


n spring of 2008, I had the worst case of writer’s block. All my creative juices had run dry. My mind felt like a desert without a speck of fertile soil. “That’s no good! Who’s going to like that?” With each word, another piece of my creativity spontaneously combusted. Despite the desolation I felt, I reached into my heart and discovered another seed of inspiration. Scared of what my mind might do with this beautiful youngling, I reluctantly planted it and started fleshing it out. As I began working with lyric and melody, a nagging voice built to a deafening scream, “You’re in way over your head! Who do you think you are, signing a record deal?! You’re a fraud! Everyone is going to know that you are not good enough!” Surrounded by mocking evidence in the form of mountains of crumpled papers with inadequate lyrics strewn across my office floor, I faced the facts: “I am not good enough to be a successful recording artist.” I felt

discouraged and frustrated. I had been defeated by my own mind. At this rate, it would be impossible to submit my songs to the record label that had just signed me. It was over. My dream had died. Until… I inquired within, “Wait, if I’m the one who just stopped my creative process dead in its tracks, then I’m also the one who can get this train moving again! How did this happen? I was moving right along in my brilliant creative process, then got hit by the train I was conducting!” I realised… The #1 killer of creativity is judgment! I created this process for myself that now allows me to get out of my own way and flow with endless creativity. HOW TO GET OUT OF JUDGMENT AND UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVITY IN 3 EASY STEPS: Step #1: Make a commitment to keep judgment away from you and your creations. Step #2: Any time you feel yourself

tempted to judge, picture a stop sign and choose to engage in a loving conversation instead. Step #3: If judgment persists, stop the creative process and do something else. Take a walk, read a book, take a bath, do anything but continue destroying your creation. You see, each aspect of your life is a creative process and you are the creator. Your beliefs are the brushstrokes that paint your experience alive with vivid colour or lifeless with judgment. What would your life feel like if you learned how to get out of judgment and instead ignited your life with the infinite energy of love? I can show you how… RIKKA ZIMMERMAN is a global leader in consciousness who facilitates countless transformations across the world.

is caring for self



ow can we prevent the storm before the disaster arises? Without even realising, we can have the tendency to treat our material possessions with more care than our own body. We book our car in for regular services to prevent damage, we set up smoke alarms to warn us of any potential danger, but yet we ignore internal pain; the body’s smoke alarm, alerting us that our own physical shell, our body, is in fact, in danger. How different could our body feel if we had strategies in place to regularly care for it and prevent potential damage? So, how can we service our body? I am sure you all know the basics: regular exercise aims to assist joint mobility; increase oxygen to the tissues; decrease tension and so forth. It’s a must. Regular daily movement-based exercise should be an absolute priority. Additionally, adequate hydration, a wholesome diet, regular stretches and

a meditation practice, are all amazing for the body. But I believe there is one key aspect that is often missed or overlooked. I have countless initial consultations with patients who are in severe, acute pain, that are generally otherwise seemingly healthy patients. They eat well, exercise 3-4 times a week, have healthy relationships and yet they still end up injured or sick. Why? Because, they didn’t book in for a 10,000km service on the most important vehicle of all: their body. Booking in for a regular check-up with an osteopath or your health care practitioner could resolve dysfunction before it even makes itself known to you. Yes, the car may sound okay, it might even feel smooth to drive, but we still take it for a service to have an expert opinion every 10,000km or every 6 months or so. So why do we not do the same for our own body?

The human body has an innate intelligence. Your body will strive to prevent pain as much as it can. Often your body will give you little ‘warning signs’ when it is reaching its limit. Perhaps you wake up with a morning niggle or a twinge here or there and then suddenly a few days later, you bend over to pick up a pen and cannot get back up. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, this is seen very frequently in practice. Things like the niggles, morning stiffness, the end of the day backache; these are the warning signs. This is the beeping of the smoke alarm, reminding you to check in with your health practitioner. More often than not, these issues can be addressed, ‘re-aligned’ per se, quite easily with a ‘10,000km check-up’, and the potential future crisis can be averted, before it even began. www.circlewellness.com.au


Do you suffer from allergies? Using a simple, non-invasive, natural method, say good-bye to them! Underlying allergies are the cause of most major health disorders. There is hardly any human disease where allergic factors are not involved. Treating: Eczema and all skin diseases, autism/ADHD, depression, arthritis, hayfever, chronic fatigue, herpes, insomnia, hot flushes, migraines, gluten, egg, dust, pollen, peanuts, etc and many more – just ask.

epression. Anxiety. Suicide. Open the newspaper, look online, talk to the people you know. These things are on the rise. You don’t have to go far to find someone who struggles with thoughts and feelings of despair, overwhelm and exhaustion. Or maybe you are one of them? I know. I was one of them. For a long time, every day I woke up with so much sadness and depression that I didn’t know how to make it through the day. Seventeen years ago it was so severe that I wanted to kill myself. I even set the day. Today, here I am, with a love and lust for living. I wake up every morning so grateful to be alive. My life is an adventure and every day keeps getting even better. Here are three things I started to do that changed everything: 1. START EVERY DAY WITH ASKING QUESTIONS The next time you wake up with thoughts of depression, rather than spiralling down into those all-toofamiliar feelings, ask a question. Asking

questions can empower you to change anything. Here are some questions you can ask: • Universe, will you please show me something beautiful today? • What else is possible here that I’ve never considered? One of the problems with depression and sadness is that we don’t see any other options. When you ask a question, you open the door to new possibilities opening up that you couldn’t see before. 2. STOP TRYING TO FIX YOU When you feel down, when you can’t seem to find that happy feeling no matter how hard you try, often times you decide that there is something wrong with you and you start desperately seeking to fix it. What if there’s nothing wrong with you? We spend so much time judging ourselves and our bodies and we are so used to believing that we are wrong! Would you be willing to let that go? Would you be willing to consider that you’re not nearly as messed up as

you’ve decided you are? Try asking this question every day, “What’s right about me that I’m not getting?” I wonder how much lighter you would feel if you weren’t in constant judgment of you? 3. DON’T TAKE ON OTHER PEOPLE’S STUFF The thing that changed my life dramatically from wanting to die to living happily is a little question I heard, “Who does this belong to?” We are all very aware of the people around us. If we have people around us that are depressed, we often feel depressed and think that we are, when we are just aware of others. Please know, regardless of how difficult things seem, something else is possible. You can beat the blues. You can wake up in the morning happy. DR DAIN HEER will be on the Sunshine Coast for his signature class based on his best selling book called “A Taste of Being” on 25th November at Peppers, Noosa. Visit: www.drdainheer.com or email: lauren@accessconsciousness.com

FREE YOURSELF FROM THE TOXIC EFFECTS OF DENTISTRY Mercury not only fuels the flames of inflammation, it also hampers your body’s ability to detoxify itself, which makes you even sicker. Silver fillings can also hide decays and are a factor in teeth cracking. The primary aim of Dr Kluge is dentistry to resolve your dental problems while working in harmony with the rest of your body. We are well aware of the dangers involved with toxic materials such as mercury fillings. We provide the correct way for the removal and replacement of fillings with a non-toxic material. Options will consider individual needs and will be given after a full assessment.

What has TRUST got to do with SELF-CARE? WORDS KATE M FOSTER


’ve spent the past month travelling the USA and Canada with my family, promoting my new book and learning from remarkable teachers including: Brene Brown, Pema Chodron and Adyashanti. Fierce and unwavering dedication to learning, healing and growth is required to serve others, and while I teach, any mastery I embody is that of a willing student. I have a commitment to not shy away from my fears or medicate myself with falsities, well aware that a fabricated sense of ‘knowing’ can close my heart and limit my ability to bless others. For a decade I’ve dreamt of attending teachings with one of the most influential women in my world, Pema Chodron. Now in her 81st year, she devotes her time to silence, retreating for 12 months at a time, emerging to briefly

teach before retreating once again. Receiving last minute places in her USA retreat (after waitlisting three years in a row) was a miracle to me. Meeting her and introducing her to my family was a blessing beyond comprehension. In sharing with this remarkable woman, what impacted me most was her humanness. While listening, I realised she had not blessed millions of humans by being fancy or ‘shiny spiritual’, but rather by showing up real, being kind (to herself and others) and sincerely telling the truth. This, married with her fierce commitment to learning, changes lives. (And truthfully is within reach for each of us.) Being in Brene’s presence was much the same. I got a palpable sense that she was simply another human like you and I, showing up brave, real and strong in service of others. She

asks hard questions and waits for life to answer them. What stands out is that these two women share a strong approach to self-care. How could they ever truly serve the world if they didn’t? I used to believe self-care could begin when I finally completed all the tasks on my spiritual, emotional and physical to do list. That a time would come when life would finally be on track and I could prioritise me. Now, what I clearly understand is this moment is all I have. Trusting life and this beautiful mess, my only option. And how I treat myself when I am alone, that’s the true measure of my success. How might life be different if you listened, cared for or trusted yourself more? Take care dear hearts, all love, KMF xo www.katemfoster.com

Remembering the



ovember is usually a month of tying up loose ends, completing unfinished things as we head towards the end of the year. We have been called to be courageous in 2017, to recognise who we are NOT, so we can move confidently towards who we are becoming. In the remembering process, emotions can be at surface level, thinking can be scattered, and thoughts can include: What is the point? Am I really wanting to keep doing/living this way of life? What else is there for me? What is the purpose of all of this? Am I really on track? These are all questions that signal an internal message of change or growth. Things become a bit uncomfortable as what needs to be cleared to grow, will come bubbling to the surface. Most of us will deal with what arises in the way we have always dealt with issues: we can worry, overthink, start to ‘sink’ or feel like we

are drowning… we may come to an abrupt stop and then stagnation sets in. We will turn to self-care to nurture ourselves through these ‘growing pains’, and yes we have loads of choices at our disposal to achieve this. There is another skill that is deeply supportive and it requires you to trust in yourself and another person. It is the powerful action of ‘holding space’. Support is also an act of self-care. Many of us have conditions around being supported. Perhaps we can support others easily, yet, are resistant to receiving support when we need it most. This is where holding space becomes a tool, a gift, an act of love. Having a person you discern to be strong enough to hold you in a place of truth, honesty, non-judgment, acceptance, while you ‘spill’ everything out around an issue that is needing a loving resolution, is not only profound, it is necessary. When we speak things out loud, the thread of what is on the surface

unravels, bringing up from the depths of your inner world, the triggers, the scenarios, the patterns and finally the answer, which has always been there. Relief embraces you as you feel yourself bring the truth, which has been buried, into this moment of awareness, and you know what to do with certainty to move forward, to change the situation within self. Everything we need to know, we already have within. Holding space for others and being held, is sitting in reverence with sacred connection, hearts pulsing, with a common understanding that you are more than what is happening in your life right now. You have the answer for your own soul growth. The opportunity to speak, without interruptions, without anyone wanting to ‘fix/heal/repair’ you, the power of recognising your vulnerabilities, while another soul bears witness, is a great gift of self-care and a connection of hearts, souls and humanness as support. www.raelenebyrne.com

Interview with Kate Reardon

Multi-level HEALING and ADVENTURES IN BALI Vanessa: What originally inspired you to want to facilitate other people’s healing journeys and can you share a bit about your own healing; the challenges and what has assisted you? Kate: My personal healing journey began when I was 15 years old. I was diagnosed with aggressive glandular fever, Ross River fever (a nasty virus

caught by pesky little mosquitoes) and had my appendix rupture as they were taking it out of me during surgery. My immune system was completely shattered, I was experiencing an extreme amount of pain and completely exhausted. This was the first time in my life that modern medicine could not help me. There was absolutely nothing any

of the doctors could do to help me get ‘well’. They told my parents to take me home, let me rest, give me strong pain medication and feed me ice-cream and then eventually I would come around to my usual self. In hindsight, ice-cream was the worst thing I could have possibly had at the time thanks to an already existent dairy allergy and the fact that its high sugar content would contribute to the depletion of my already compromised immune system. After two months in bed, I had made very little improvement. I still didn’t have enough energy to stand up in the shower, go back to school or stay awake for more than a couple of hours at a time. These were not fun times in my teenage years, I can guarantee you that! Mum was desperate to get me well and healthy again and decided to take me to see a homeopath. This was my first experience with alternative and holistic health care and actually now looking back, a hugely pivotal point in my life. I liked this woman instantly. She was asking me questions that I actually had to think about. She wanted to know all about me, who I was, beyond my signs and symptoms of my body, by delving deeply

into the cause of why I ended up getting so sick in the first place. She explained ‘life force’ and told me that this inner vital energy was low within me and I needed to help it thrive by exploring the emotional and spiritual sides of myself. I was 15 and ‘self discovery’ of this depth was not on my radar at all. Yet amongst this overloaded influx of new words, concepts and ideas she presented, I knew she was right. Something deep inside of me awakened and I knew what she was telling me was going to help me get healthy again. After I had integrated the advice of this homeopath and connected back into my heart through meditation and inner self-exploration, I discovered something very powerful within myself that would change the course of my life forever. I discovered my sixth sense was very strong, my intuition crystal clear, and I could see, feel and know things that no one else could. I had opened up a part of myself that needed revealing and through that, enormous healing occurred for me on many levels. My physical body recovered quickly, my energy started to increase and I felt stronger than I ever had before. I discovered that I had the power to change the state of my mind and body and that my ‘life force’ was a precious presence within me that I must nourish and nurture always.

This seed was planted within me and I knew it was my life’s purpose to help facilitate healing, transformation and change within other people. So with extensive tertiary studies in both complementary and mind body medicine, I set out on a global search of finding the most dynamic way of helping people achieve radical healing and transformation. This adventure took me all over the world and eventually to Bali where I co-founded Natural Instinct Healing with my husband Pat. Vanessa: What called you to Bali and what has this experience been like over the last seven years? Kate: I don’t really know what called me to Bali other than the absolute knowing that I was meant to be there. It was not a specific thing per se that I was attracted to, it was more a feeling within my heart and a ‘calling’ to take on a huge adventure both personally and professionally. I had no idea what I was doing initially but our dream was to always have a healing space where people from all over the world could come together and rest, restore and realign their bodies, minds and spirits. My intention and vision was crystal clear and out-weighed any fear or resistance I had in making it happen. And because it was a co-creation project with my husband Pat, we jumped in head first and gave it a red hot go and then all

the magic unfolded from there. It is a constant challenge working in Bali and running an international ‘heart-based’ business, but the most thrilling adventure I have ever been on. The level of growth I have undergone since coming to Bali is enormous and our retreat programs have served over a thousand people now from all walks of life. I could never in a million years imagine we would be where we are, it has been a tsunami of blood, sweat and tears, but knowing that you are helping support people in their own healing and transforming journeys, well, there is no greater honour! It definitely keeps us motivated and inspired to do what we do when we witness miracles happen within people’s lives. Vanessa: What are your top 2 selfcare tips? Kate: A. Be gentle, specific and aware of who you give your energy too. Your own energy system, your life force or prana is your most precious commodity; use it wisely! If you are already feeling depleted don’t go and ‘spend’ more of your energy on things that don’t really matter. Listen to your body and keep your heart open to what it is that will truly serve you in every moment. B. Ask yourself the question “What would someone that truly loved themselves do?” this is a game changer! www.katereardon.com.au

used to feel annoyed when people would say, “Oh, your creative energy is connected to your sexual energy.” It’s just that your second chakra is stuck – oh please! Until… I experienced it for myself. See, I am a bit of a sceptic. Until I experience something for myself, I don’t really believe. However – energy is energy – there’s no one separate energy for this and one energy for that – it’s all one. Creativity comes through in all ways – being pregnant is a creative process, mothering, fathering, working, cooking a beautiful meal can be creative, arranging some flowers in your house, designing a building or a garden is creative. What I have experienced though, is a direct connection between how I made love to how creative I became in my life. Making love, where the energy is always expressed outwards, has a very different effect on the psyche

and body than if you, through your awareness; retain that energy – at least for some time. That’s where slow conscious sex comes to the fore. The chemicals associated with sex actually begin in the brain, in the pineal and pituitary glands. In conventional sex, the energy is raised and then released out of the body. What we teach at ‘The Making Love Retreat’ is how to create the environment to effortlessly allow the energy to recirculate back through the body and return to its source, the brain. But this is not done through some mystical technique. The body has an inherent and natural ability to regenerate and recirculate this energy all on its own, flooding the body in soothing chemicals that bathe and saturate the glands to a state of deep relaxation; and it is from this state of deep relaxation that the creativity is sparked. If you feel stuck emotionally,


or stressed, then you can feel stuck creatively. But it’s good to remember that the body and psyche respond very quickly to its environment. Blocked creativity today, does not mean it’s long lasting – it can change in the blink of an eye. And usually it has to do with being in the body and not in the mind. As soon as the flow comes back into your body, things start to shift. So whether you are single or partnered, the secret lies in allowing stagnant energy to move, through gentle physical activity, slow lovemaking if possible, or a combination of both movement and being in stillness – embodied meditation. Then creative expression will arise naturally. JANET is a speaker, author and mentor, who supports women and couples to deepen in their intimate relationship.

1. TAKE TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY When something does find you, it is from a past choice of ‘yours’, conscious or unconscious. It is not the outside experience causing the conundrum, it is the outside experience giving you an opportunity to make a different choice. In these times, usually we avoid the actual different choices that are available to us – the ones that will set us free, grow us, move us forward well and give different results. Because at the time, they seem hard, impossible, and take us way out of our comfort zones. 2. CONNECT WITH YOUR BODY’S CONSCIOUSNESS It will connect you to your subconscious, higher self, future self, the entire universe etc. Say out loud something like this, “Body, show me today clearly what my lightest choice forward is here.” 3. ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALL CHOICES WILL WORK OUT FOR YOU AND ARE VALID This step is very, very important.

When you do this, you invite all possibilities in. You override your ‘ego’ that will do its best to keep you ‘safe’, in blame and a victim. It will try and tell you one choice is better than the other; keep reminding you bad things will happen if you choose what your intuition may be saying, or something different or new. Your emotional body will become more intense and your mind will start to go to extremes with negative stories the further you step out of your comfort zone. Your ego will keep you in what is ‘known’ and what you have done before – regardless of outcome! Different and new choices will create different and new results. 4. PAY ATTENTION TO THE ‘SIGNS’ Not the signs from your emotional body or negative stories. These signs are in your environment – in many places. When you come from a space of “all choices will work out for me”, your body’s consciousness will give you many, many signs throughout your day for a choice that will ‘feel light’. It will

float to the top of all the choices and you will be able to ‘perceive’ it. Pay attention to everything that shows up this day. 5. TRUST YOURSELF AND WHAT YOUR BODY’S CONSCIOUSNESS SHOWED YOU This is the easy part – ‘seeing’ your choice in your environment. We are so supported, only always in all ways. If you are willing, brave and open, you will see it clearly. It’s our wobbly emotional bodies and negative stories that can take over this natural process of feeling and trusting your gut. A knowing will drop in when you see the ‘signs’ that are your direction. This knowing will fuel your momentum to take action. The bigger the conundrum, the more ‘unsafe’ your choice’s outcome may feel. However, unless we choose something different, the same situation will find us again. We may see it differently but it will emotionally feel the same. bodyconsciousness.com.au

the treadmill of life



et’s face it, life is busy and when you are not busy, it’s probably an 8 out of 10 (ok 9.95 out of 10) chance that your mind is busy. ‌kids, food shopping, study, Aunt Jane, someone needs new socks, rain is coming, walls need painting, an earthquake in New Zealand, season finals, pretty flowers, oh look shiny thing, GOAT!!! It’s common to keep so busy, so that you avoid one of the most crucial aspects in your life‌YOU!!! Then it starts‌ realisations of life – your life, and then there’s that abominable thought. “How did I get here?â€? The moment that creates deafening silence. Followed by, “What about me? It isn’t fair‌â€? As sad as it seems, most of us have been there at some point or another. So as it goes, we pull up our big girl panties (or pull on those man boots) and declare that “things have got to

change, and they are changing NOW!â€? Which sounds really great, feeling empowered, you go book yourself in for that massage you have wanted for weeks (ok months‌ hmm righto years) and then try that new restaurant everyone has been raving about and then you realise you are wearing the same outfit you were wearing in 1998‌ time for a new one. Discovering new aspects of yourself you feel relaxed and joyful. Then on the way home you encounter those old thoughts, feelings and beliefs‌ “Sammy needs new runnersâ€?, “we actually could have put that money towards car payments or at least into savings for a family holidayâ€?‌ “who am I to take from my family?â€?‌ Oh the guilt!!! A lot of those situations stem from historical beliefs. Beliefs which are deep in your subconscious of not being good enough nor worthy, obligations to put everyone else first; not knowing how to live without being deprived‌ etc.

This in no way means that you have to resort to missing out, it is actually a wonderful opportunity to grow from. And to initiate a deeper level of self-care and understanding. As you begin to understand yourself on deeper levels, you can upgrade your belief systems from what is no longer working for you and transform your life and yourself into that which you desire. You are important, you have value, you are here for great reasons. So that call you made that things are to change now‌ make it a real one. Invest in yourself in a way which is going to keep on giving to you, that will become expansive. It may take some dedication to yourself in time and money. But the improved outcome you experience, which on-flows to your family, is beyond worth it. Your last holiday may have been 10 years ago – but that doesn’t mean you can’t have 20 in the next 10 years!! www.evolvewitheta.com

he four nations have been separated too long. The four tribes that birthed us all, are now too often divided and harming each other. Why? By our judgment: colour, religion, gender, income, appearance, locality, horoscope and many more… all are aspects of life that are truly external to our spirit. We share the same emotions, love, hatred and anger. We all cry and have sadness. We are all the same physical bodies, we all have the same coloured blood, we all originate from the same energy source. We are all on the same planet. Initially classified by where we are born and to which family, from there the judgments flow as we learn what is deemed appropriate in our personal environment. Our inner self, our spirit, does not acknowledge this divided imposed realm.

What is the solution? When all the externals are set aside, spirit can choose wisely. And spirit knows truth. Each judgment is a key to greater connection, rather than division. All aspects of an individual’s chosen human experience are important to that spirit’s journey. When you release yourself from the restrictions that have been placed and programmed into your conscious mind, you are free to choose how and where you should live, who should be your friends and partner in life, how you should work and provide for yourself, and much more. Those who cannot shift, will still place judgment upon you. If you have broken free you won’t react… you’ll be free from judgment. Free to be yourself. Many of us have chosen to be born into a country and time where we have a life that gives us freedoms only dreamt of in other lands. I believe that this also places a responsibility firmly on our



shoulders… While so many others are fighting for survival on a daily basis, we have time to think and play. We also have the time and tools to focus on what each of us as individuals can do to further heal our planet and her residents. And to do it. We are all familiar with the truism that some come into our life for a reason, some a season, some a lifetime. We can navigate that well when we heed our spirit’s guidance. Living actively with our spirit will keep us true to our path. More compassion, even where understanding is not present, will help many. Gaia shifts, we shift and learn… who knows where her current shifts will take us, as she does her best to realign. What we do know, is that we are a universal family, here to help each other. Four nations, sharing, helping each other to grow together. www.facebook.com/3CrowsShaman/

n average, we spend 90% of our time indoors, which includes homes, offices, restaurants and vehicles. The evolution of our modern world has insulated us from outdoor environmental stimuli and regular contact with nature. What is the impact of spending only 10% of our lives outside? When we are bombarded with information, we often find ourselves needing a walk outdoors to ‘clear our head’. Scientists have established that being in nature has a profound impact on our brains and our behaviour. It helps us to reduce anxiety and stress, and increases our attention span, creativity and our ability to connect with other people. It can even make us more caring and generous. Studies identified that those more immersed in natural settings are more generous, whereas those immersed in non-natural settings are less giving. Participants exposed to nature, value intrinsic goals more and extrinsic goals less than they had before exposure.

The condition termed ‘Nature Deficit Disorder’ by Richard Louv, author of ‘The Nature Principle’, confirms time spent in nature, causes your stress hormones to go down, your blood pressure to go down, your resting heart rate to go down, and overall you feel better. These are immediate effects and even just 15 minutes outside will bring you some major health benefits. Are we utilising the untapped resource nature provides? When we don’t all have a national park in our backyard, how else can we connect with nature and reap the benefits? Creating a garden is your answer and you can do that anywhere: a window, balcony, patio, deck, sidewalks, on your wall, between your pavers, on your city roof, potted plants, a patch of dirt, your neighborhood’s community garden or a formally designed veggie patch. Whatever form it takes, get gardening and get dirty; play with your plants! Of course, whether it is a flower or veggie garden, it’s important to grow

organic, without the use of synthetic fertilisers, toxic pesticides and weed killers. Use that 15 minutes pulling weeds to reconnect with Mother Nature. If we are constantly indoors, on a device or in front of a screen, we’re missing out on something that’s pretty spectacular! Have concerns about your organic gardening skills? Don’t fret; there are many businesses and organisations willing to help. If you are: • A ‘Teach me’ gardener – attend a permaculture/biodynamic course or drop into your local community garden. • An ‘Ikea flat pack’ gardener – order complete small herb starter kits with seeds/soil/container posted anywhere in Australia or organise for the complete organic veggie garden kits to be delivered to your door.

n April this year, ministers responsible for food regulation considered Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ)’s approval of a proposal to permit the sale of low-THC hemp seed foods. This means the Food Standards Code has been amended to permit the sale of low THC hemp seed foods. However the changes will not come into effect until November 12th, 2017. Hemp or industrial hemp is a cannabis plant species (Cannabis sativa). Historically, hemp has been used as a source of fibre and oil. Hemp seeds and oil are used in other countries, including in Europe, Canada and the United States of America, in a range of foods. Hemp seeds contain protein, vitamins, minerals and polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp is different to other varieties of C. sativa which

are commonly referred to as marijuana as it contains no, or very low levels of THC (delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid associated with the psychoactive properties of marijuana. Hemp is cultivated worldwide, including in Australia and New Zealand (under strict licensing arrangements) and is currently used in Australia and New Zealand as a source of fibre for clothing and building products. A special message from The Hempothecary, Montville, Queensland… get ready to have a very Hempy November 12th, 2017! And to celebrate, the Hempothecary at Shop 1/171 Main Street, Montville, Qld will be giving away samples of hemp seed, hemp protein powder, hemp tea taste testing and other hempy goodies for all to try.

“I don’t have to




ould it be this simple to heal your body? I believe we carry invisible triggers in our body as cellular memory and they create blockages / pain / discomfort / disease. A massage I had in 2010 showed me a new way to heal. I had been on a boat in rough seas and fallen on my hip against the hand rail whilst taking a photo. My legs were very sore and the masseuse could feel the knots. She said “So what does that mean, Julie?” I have meanings for different parts of the body. “Being on the right side means I am afraid to step into my purpose and something that has happened in the past two years is holding me back.” As she massaged my right leg, I filtered through my mind and remembered what it was. “You know what – I don’t have to do that anymore.” Snap – the knot went soft. She moved up my leg and asked, “What’s that?” touching my knee.

“What I am seeing is a right angle turn. The knee is about hinges. It’s about flexibility. Instead of a fork in the road, I see a right angle turn.” She said, “What did you do?” “I went on the right angle road.” She said, “It released (snap) just like that.” “I don’t have to do that pathway anymore.” We went right through my body and I identified with all the things I was doing which were related to the invisible triggers. I simply said, “I don’t need to do that anymore”, and they dissolved. This was extraordinary! It was really deep work and the therapist didn’t have to know the content – I knew – and all I had to say was, “I don’t need to do that anymore”. Sometime later while attending a pilates class, I felt as though I had been badly punched in the back. I checked in with self and asked – what does the back represent? The weight of the

world! I thought, “What have I done?” I had written an email to my clients advising meditation classes next week, but I hadn’t sent it. During pilates I realised I had accepted responsibility for the weight of all their stuff. Once I recognised this – I said, “I don’t have to do that,” and the pain released. Then my spine hurt and I asked, “What else have I accepted?” I had accepted responsibility for the structure of their lives! I said, “That’s not mine either – I won’t do that anymore.” In 30 seconds, I got it, released it and my back was fine. Isn’t that extraordinary! You can do this, too.

SELF-CARE is a MINDSET WORDS DR SALLY JAMES, Clinical Psychologist and Mind Body Wellness Coach


s a Clinical Psychologist, I am privileged to work with some of the most beautiful, loving, caring, generous and giving individuals you will ever meet, yet all present with a combination of anxiety, depression, stress, burnout with health issues. Caring for others is a selfless act of loving-kindness and most of my clients are caring experts, they care for others brilliantly, automatically, often without expectation, appreciation or reciprocation. It is ‘over caring for others’, entwined with the belief that pleasing or meeting the needs of others is more important than one’s own needs, that is the reason why many kind, loving individuals end up in my office, usually totally overwhelmed with a psychological diagnosis. Many Holistic Bliss readers will resonate greatly with the attributes of a ‘caring’ personality. Nurturing others is a natural and deeply ingrained part of the maternal role. Pleasing and giving to others is not only an internally rewarding act of loving kindness, but also a highly esteemed personal attribute, offering external rewards and social recognition. When you love someone very much, it is all too easy to care and give too much, a habit that eventually affects our mental and physical health. Self-sacrifice and

subjugation of our own emotional needs tops the list of cognitive beliefs of those suffering from chronic burnout. It feels good to help others, but as the demands of living in this modern world have multiplied, it is essential that we also nurture, care and help ourselves. It is the art of balancing giving to others with caring for ourselves, that is key to staying healthy. This can be a challenging task. Most caring individuals are highly compassionate, sensitive, intuitive and empathic. Many can sense the emotions of others, even feel the distress of others in their own body and for such individuals they are highly susceptible to psychological, emotional and physiological burnout and illness. The science examining the mindbody connection is indisputable, caring for others without adequately caring for ourselves, is causal in chronic illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, cancer and other lifestyle diseases. Selfcare is non-negotiable, if we want to feel good, be the best parent, partner, employee, employer, live well and avoid being struck down by a nasty disease; we simply have to do the work. We have to take good care of ourselves; our own ‘temple’ that is our mind, body and soul. Self-care is a reflection of self-respect and it is the best life insurance policy we

can ever invest in. Yet putting ‘the self first’ does not come easily or naturally to many of us. In Western society, putting our own needs first, is often frowned upon and many of us have a fear of being seen as selfish. Putting our ‘self first’ is not an act of selfishness; on the contrary, it is an intelligent conscientious decision to love and respect the greatest asset we will ever have – our body! Self-care is a ‘mindset’, a way of thinking and doing that requires conscious intention, commitment, rehearsal and practise. We owe it to ourselves, to our mind, body and soul, to put our ‘self first’, to take time to nurture ourselves, to develop a daily practice of meditation, activity, reflection, healthy eating and quality sleep. It takes three months to build a new mindset and a new set of habits. It might not be easy… but it will be worth it.

o you ever hear the whispering of your own soul calling to you, but feel unable to access that greatness? Do you ever feel blocked in some way, angry, anxious or depressed? It may be as simple as feeling there must be something more to life, or as complex as feeling a complete failure or developing a serious illness. Yet, no matter how deep your issue is, no matter how much you have struggled with it, the possibility exists for you to become absolutely free, whole and healed. Everyone would agree we all sense that there is greatness inside. Most of us have glimpsed this potential, yet something prevents us from accessing it and experiencing it daily. It took a tumour the size of a basketball to catapult me on a remarkable, soul-searching and ultimately freeing healing journey in which I uncovered a means to get direct access to the boundless healing


CHANGE is possible

potential inside all of us. Only 6½ weeks later I was pronounced tumour free, no drugs – no surgery! The extraordinary gift of my own healing journey, was to pioneer a simple, yet powerful step-by-step means to tap into the body’s infinite wisdom, elicit its unlimited healing power, uncovering specific cell memories, and clearing out any emotional, spiritual or physical block stored on a cellular level. Renowned cellular biologist, Dr Candace Pert has established that when we have repressed emotions, it releases a chemistry into the blood stream that blocks certain cell receptors. When we uncover this repressed trauma, resolve and clear it, our body and our being goes about the process of healing quite naturally on its own. Across the globe, hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life use ‘The Journey method’ to discover real freedom in their lives. They are uncovering their own answers, their deepest truth, experiencing

profound emotional and physical healing at a cellular level. People who have experienced ‘The Journey’ have found that anxiety, depression and sexual blocks disappear; self-esteem, grief, and anger issues dissolve; addictions fall away and illnesses can resolve and heal. I believe that everyone longs to live their life as an expression of this huge potential, experiencing the boundless joy and love within. But it is not enough to know about it, you need to directly experience it to facilitate true healing on all levels. Suzy Greaves, journalist for the Sunday Times UK, after participating in my seminar, commented: “My heart felt healed, whole. I felt as if I’d been washed from the inside out, as if someone had just wiped me clean. I wanted to dance, sing, celebrate. I finally felt free!” BRANDON BAYS is one of the most dynamic teachers of our time. Visit: www.thejourney.com

Are you creating your own illness? WORDS JANE TREDREA


here is nothing outside of yourself. Every time you feel happy it is coming from you. Every time you feel sad, it is coming from you. Nothing exists outside of yourself. Everything that comes into your existence you are creating. You create everything that happens to you… from the grumpy checkout girl, to winning first division in Lotto, to creating your illness. Did I just say you create your own illness? Yes. And as easily as you created it, you can ‘uncreate’ it. I have been clearing people’s allergies/illnesses for 10 years now and have seen people who clear very easily and have seen people who have been to so many different healers, naturopaths, doctors, and can get no relief from their illness. Why is that? One reason is subconsciously their illness is serving them in some way. Usually they do not know how it could possibly be serving them. But here is an example of how an illness can serve you. This may be expressed as, wanting love or attention but not receiving it. So your subconscious knows it cannot change anyone else, all it has to work with is you. So if you create an illness and someone has to look after you, all of a sudden you are getting what you want. Just recognising that you are getting benefits from having this illness is the first step in your healing. www.allergyandhealthclinic.weebly.com

Ask Linda Willow

Q: I am often told I am sensitive, can you please suggest ways I can clear and protect my energy? – Jill, Kawana, Qld. Linda: Hi Jill, being sensitive is a wonderful thing. That means you’re connected to all that there is. Working with spirit regarding protection is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it gets. So start with asking spirit to surround you with white light everyday. At the end of a conversation say, “I give back to you Jill that is yours with love and light, and I take back from you that is mine with love and light.” So we make sure the energy is back where it belongs. Visualise roots coming up through the earth wrapping themselves around your feet and anchoring you to mother earth. The more you work with spirit/source, the stronger the connection is. Practising the on/off button helps. Open to spirit – have boundaries when working spiritually, then have a closing ritual. It’s about balancing mind, body and soul. Bring your energy back to you instead of having your expanded, evolved vibration out in other people’s energies. There are many different ways to look after yourself as a sensitive person. The positive step you have taken is to ask a question that is about looking after you! The mind is a very powerful tool, so the best way to look after you, is to say what you want as well. I am safe. My energy is always replenished.

Your Inner Terrain


The demands and pressures of this busy life can cause us to feel overwhelmed, overloaded, stressed, worried, anxious, and alone. Conducted over two sessions, The Reconnection is an activation process that reconnects and energises the soul lines of the body. In the weeks after their sessions, people commonly report: • feeling revitalised, activated, grounded; more able to manifest what they need most. • a strong sense of clarity, a rise in drive, motivation and direction. • a level of healing they struggled to achieve previously. • a significant acceleration in spiritual growth, moving them into a deeper connection with their intuitive self. For more on this and the science behind it, please visit the website or call.

What do you mean




t’s strange how we refer to people as the creative arty type and we often don’t consider that we all have a creative core. My belief about myself used to be, “I am not creative!” Until I realised combining my love for flowers and plants and the old art of

Hawaiian lei making was right up my alley! No one can ever make an ugly lei! They are incredible! Grab a blanket, a bunch of cushions and throw a bunch of greenery and flowers in the middle. Nothing is so therapeutic as making a beautiful head crown. I recently booked my friend Leiona for my daughter’s birthday party to come and teach the girls the art of lei making. They are all still talking about it months later. Leiona is a human that feels like sunshine. You know one of those people that instantly make you happy on sight. She is from the island of Ohau Hawaii and has started workshops, hens’ parties, baby showers and any gatho, she brings a piece of Hawaii to everyone she meets. She always has a flower in her hair. Leiona believes that lei making is

meditative, relaxing and mindless. “The people that take my classes become consumed by the peace and happiness it brings to their busy minds. It is a true communion of beauty and friendship. Lei making consumes me,” Leiona says. So, if you are like me and can’t draw or paint (and I seriously doubted I had received any creative fibre in my body), lei making might be for you! My style is gathering a group of friends, putting on Fleetwood Mac, sitting on a throw with gorgeous flowers thrown in the middle. A jug of Mai Tais is mandatory! To me it is self-care, an expression of self-love and pure bliss. I walk around for days with my Lei on. You can find or book @Leilunaleis through Instagram.

id you know Manuka honey is made from the specific trees that are found in both Australia and New Zealand? The by-product of the honey bee selecting this delicate flower from these specific shrubs results in an outstanding medical grade product which is known as Manuka honey. This special ingredient is graded by the honey industry which follows stringent testing and rules. Each is given a rating which is commonly referred to as UMF or ‘Unique Manuka Factor’. The most common ratings can range from 10+ to 50+. The plus sign is used because, with storage, the antibacterial components can actually rise. The UMF is the most common and well-known rating system. THE 5 SECRET SUPER ‘POUT’ POWERS OF MANUKA HONEY 1. Acts as mild exfoliant 2. 20+ UMF is considered to be medical grade 3. Helps draw out impurities DAY 1 4. Helps rehydrate your lips

of Manuka honey

5. Anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory You may like to know that Manuka honey is considered to be ‘humectant’ which means it has the ability to draw moisture from the air and lock it in to your lips. This is a key ingredient in helping your lips stay hydrated and keeps them looking healthy. CUSTOMER STORY Meet Bob (actually he’s my dad) – one day he had an accident with the gas bottle and couldn’t turn it off; consequently there was a fire and dad got burnt. He had 2nd degree burns to his face, lips, nose and hair. His skin was a bit of a mess and he was in a great deal of pain.



After going to the doctor who suggested a lot chemical and synthetic creams that may help his skin, I suggested that he try my lip balm because I knew it would help his skin heal quickly. Twice a day he applied the balm and within five days his skin was healed. I share this story with you to demonstrate the level of potency the Organic Lip Balm Company’s lip care ingredients have in them. I know it’s super important to apply your balms regularly to help assist in creating your healthy perfect pout. Manuka honey is one of the key active botanicals that is used in our formulations to help repair cellular damage, minimise fine lines and is great for cold sores as well.

truly believe there are no accidents. I remember walking into a natural therapies college in Melbourne, in 1987. Greeted by a beautiful aroma that instantly caught my attention, I walked out not only enrolling in my first aromatherapy course but with a few essential oils and a vaporiser under my arms too. I was hooked. Three and a half years later, focusing predominantly on studying the healing power of plants, chemicalfree beauty, essential oils, kinesiology and reflexology, I graduated with my Diploma in Holistic Aromatherapy on Valentine’s Day in 1991. Over the past three decades, I have researched and studied essential oils with a growing and deeper love and respect for them. There is no doubt essential oil popularity has sky rocketed in the past few years and whilst that has brought incredible awareness to this ancient modality, I have become increasingly aware of the conflicting, sometimes confusing, information that is shared too. Education is paramount.

for essential oil enthusiasts

It does not matter which brand of oils you love to use, or how qualified or new to aromatherapy you are, these cards have been designed to cut through the hype and confusion and give you comprehensive, downto-earth, scientifically validated information on how to use essential oils safely and effectively. I have chosen 50 of the most popular essential oils. These cards cover everyday ailments and include the physical and emotional qualities they possess, as well as how to use them and how to make your own personal blends with care. As you shuffle your deck of aroma cards, you can ask for guidance or for an answer. You can do a one-card, or four-card reading. That means you can choose one card to help choose an essential oil to use for that moment, or indeed for that day. Or, you can choose four cards. And place them down 1-23-4. Number 1 card is based on your past, Number 2 is your present, Number

3 is your future and Number 4 is your overview card. These four oils could be used in a massage blend, a bath, a spritzer, your diffuser or a vaporizer. Their aroma will help anchor in the guidance and answers you are seeking. Each card also contains a special intuitive message, inspired by the characteristics and life force of the plant. The bonus wooden stand means you can place your chosen one card, or overview card, next to your bed, next to your computer or somewhere in your work-space or home, so you can refer to its inspirational message throughout your day. For the essential oil enthusiast, the aroma cards are beautiful, insightful, helpful and educational. Like you, I am in absolute awe of what Mother Nature has gifted us in the form of pure essential oils and I sincerely hope you enjoy using these precious cards as much as I have loved creating them. www.kimmorrison.com

magine if a pharmaceutical company discovered a drug that could treat hypertension, eradicate type-2 diabetes, dramatically improve or even cure autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, eliminate migraine headaches, and improve depression symptoms better than anti-depressants. Imagine if this drug could also increase your lifespan, renew your immune system, reduce all symptoms of inflammation, and help you recover from a cold or the flu better than any other home or pharmaceutical remedy. Now imagine, on top of that, if taking this drug could also lead to a profound sense of mental clarity. And best of all: what if there were no adverse long-term side effects to this drug? I’m pretty sure it would be classified as a ‘miracle drug’, wouldn’t you agree? WHAT IS FASTING? Fasting, the ancient practice of abstaining from all food and drink except water, is thought to be as old

as mankind. For millennia, whether a hunter or a gatherer, man always experienced periods of feasting and scarcity in the natural biological cycle. It is the modern 24/7 access to foods that is unnatural, and our bodies are now paying the price. Our genes haven’t had time to adapt to the embarrassing overabundance of food that we have today. Our body still craves the natural cycles of abundance and scarcity of calories that it evolved to expect. Taking a break from food allows your mind and body to rest and recuperate and initiates the body’s own healing mechanisms. The goal of fasting is not to ‘fix’ something that’s wrong with our bodies, it is to get out of the way of its natural tendency toward health! FASTING: • Rests the digestive system • Allows for cleansing and detoxification of the body • Interrupts habitual eating patterns, shining a spotlight on them • Promotes greater mental clarity

• Leads to a feeling of physical lightness, increasing energy level WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FASTING? Improved heart health, increased brain function, prevention of chronic diseases, increased life span, and loss of weight, are just some of the benefits of fasting. Fasting also relieves you of the worry about thinking about what to eat! And a short break from your habitual eating habits will help shed light on why you were eating that way. Fasting is a ‘reset’ button for your sense of taste; the body and palette get cleansed of chemicals and impurities, giving you a keener ability to fully taste foods and more fully enjoy the true flavours of simple foods. Fasting also gives you more energy. After you’ve passed through the initial detox symptoms, a fast will have you feeling lighter, more energetic, more enthusiastic, and requiring less sleep. www.miessence.com

What is your




t some point in your life, you may ask questions like, “Why am I here?” or “What’s my soul’s purpose?” Often we get lost and weighed down in the 3D reality. Retrieving your Akashic record is about helping you to understand the grand scheme of things. These things include: why you’re experiencing physical or emotional pain, how it’s connected to your mental beliefs, what your higher consciousness is really telling you, how to find your jigsaw puzzle in life, review your past lives, realise your gifts or challenges, understand your various relationships, where did you originally come from in the cosmos, what are your attributes that you’ve brought through, how that’s affecting you physically now, or even what star system relates to your life. Understanding the master plan, may enable you to relate to your current circumstances better. Your personal Akashic record is like a giant library containing every detail from all your life

times, which is readily available to you so that it may assist you now. The Akashic field surrounds you everywhere, waiting for you to tap into it, to retrieve information which you have accumulated over lifetimes for your own learning. The difference between having your Akashic record read and a psychic reading, is that psychic readings may give predictions, thereby influencing your free will to make life decisions. Akashic record readings teach you about who you really are, your potential and to allow you to understand circumstances in order to make informed choices in your life. The Akashic records operate at the soul level and all information retrieved is for the purpose of your soul evolution as well as expanding your consciousness to assist your ascension into ‘All That Is’.

hen we think of the word ‘history’ we think of what happened in the past, and what that can teach us. Hopefully we can learn from that lesson to experience a better future, by not making the same mistakes over and over again! Indeed the ears and their ‘aural history’ represent a ‘past life’, and by carefully examining their texture and consistency, they can inform us of what has happened in the body recently. The epidermis and dermis acts as a physical map and a GPS to the gut; digestion and absorption, exposure to toxins and therefore predisposition to allergies via a ‘leaky gut’ system. An inflamed ear is a picture of an underlying pathology. Blending the methodology of eastern medicine with western medicine, we can review the ear and analyse its appearance. Using the systematic approach of Chinese medicine, various organ systems are linked to a meridian pathway. These paths are named after the organ they originate in. There are several meridians that are said to open in or near the ear. These are the gall bladder,

small intestine, and triple heater or San Jiao (which is a hormone regulating meridian). The stomach meridian runs just anterior, or in front of the external ear. In TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) terms, the inner ear and hearing is a physical manifestation of kidney function. Tinnitus, or the sensation of ringing of the ear and

hearing loss is a decrease in kidney strength. Sometimes the pinnae of the ear may seem hotter than the rest of the head and this is referred to as ‘empty heat’, or heat rising. The theory is that the kidneys ‘grab’ the mist from the head and bring that energy down, thus representing the kidneys as the cooling system or airconditioner.

ABOUT THE INTERNAL? Women in menopause often have hot flashes/flushes which can be interpreted as kidney yin deficiency, or that their ‘airconditioner is broken’. The epidermis may be inflamed from allergic internal (food intolerances) causes, atopy – contact or skin allergies, and from hormonal imbalances such as progesterone deficiency and hyperadrenocorticism. FOOD THERAPY To strengthen the kidneys, we can eat dark-coloured foods such as blueberries, blackberries and black fungus. As for herbal medicine, a specific herb called GeJe Kidney Nourishing is appropriate for kidney yin conditions such as tinnitus, urinary infection and warm limbs. For kidney yang conditions such as fatigue, urinary incontinence and cold, sweating limbs, the herb Liu Wei Di Huang balances the flow of kidney energy. According to Chinese medical theory eczema is influenced by three essential factors: wind, heat and dampness. These influences may be external, as evidenced by the fact that many patients feel their condition worsens during damp weather. Or, the influence may be inside the body,

emanating from the spleen, the stomach, or the lungs. This is why some patients also have digestive and/or breathing problems. See more at: www.vitalitymagazine.com/article/tcmfor-eczema/#sthash.1Ujjf5BH.dpuf I always examine the pinnae and particularly the inner surface of the aural canal looking for a smooth consistency. Teeth, mouths, eyes, ears and bums are essentially surfaces that are windows to the inside of a patient – the can tell a lot about the internal milleau of the organism if you learn to study their ‘language’. Food sensitivities or allergies are identified as a common reason for children to be prone to ear infections. The most likely food sensitivities are to milk and wheat. Try avoiding one at a time for at least 10 days. If you’re on the right track, the congestion and pain will reduce and the shiner will lighten. If this happens, see a naturopath or dietitian. Garlic is an ideal remedy for OM, as it is antibacterial and a mucolytic (it clears and dissolves mucus). You can also boost the immune system with vitamin C, zinc and

Examine the inside of your pet’s ears at least weekly – let their texture be an antennae towards fixing the future!

Medical Intuitive Cards

Sensory Body Art Reading

AUTHOR Jean Sheehan

AUTHOR Marc Bright

Welcome to the world’s first Medical Intuitive Cards, by internationally recognised and award-winning medical intuitive and author, Jean Sheehan. Each card has been specifically designed and created for metaphysical healing and insights to what your body is saying. The accuracy of these cards has been accepted and used by natural health professionals and medical doctors. Every pack of cards has a pocket book that gives you truthful messages. They are used for readings, sessions, or your own daily guidance and inspiration. Each set of 72 cards and book has a sacred ceremony to offer the divine guidance. Time to heal yourself.

“Great ancient traditional cultures and their shaman artists (from all 4 rainbow colours of human skins i.e. red, white, brown, yellow often referred to as the original ‘root races’) have applied natural pastes or paints on their skin as symbolic messages in their sacred ceremonies and community celebrations since the beginning of time.” Using the inspiration of the ancient shaman, artist Marc Bright has combined the powerfully transformative and enlightening qualities of the original ceremonies into a ‘modern day modality’ called Sensory Body Art Reading. Marc has been inspired to write this book based on the work with this amazing modality.

RRP: $66. To purchase go to: www.millenniumeducation.com/ store/Medical-Intuitive-Cards-p90534740
