Believe Magazine was created to inspire, educate and share real stories about what is possible. I know in my own life, it’s been a mixed bag of extraordinary belief in what is possible and it’s nemesis – doubt. There have been so many times when I have created, and drowned in the micro management with so much effort and striving and other times, delivery of my deepest desires from a heartfelt zone, presented to me with ease. The creation of Believe Magazine and my humanitarian work are a couple of those examples. I know that you know that there is another way and by tapping into your soul space and listening to the quiet directives and feelings resonating within, you can also create with flow Believe Magazine has two core messages…..Believe to Receive and From Force to Flow. It’s something I have spent years “learning” and if I can help you to shortcut that time, I will have accomplished my purpose 

Hungry for more crazy

good vegan food BY ANTHEA AMORE

Sesame tempeh, blue mash & greens

T

here are plenty of beautiful varieties of potatoes (and sweet potatoes) around these days, and I encourage you to try them all. I couldn’t resist this beautiful midnight blue variety in my local health-food store. They are visually striking and pair well with anything green or orange. You can use purple sweet potato mash or any other potato or sweet potato variety you have to hand. The sauerkraut in this dish really brings it alive. The tangy ’kraut adds an amazing texture and flavour to everything else on the plate. To take this dish to the next level, add my quick peanut satay or a dollop of my lemon tahini cream. Makes: 4 serves Preparation time: 15-20 minutes Cooking time: 20-25 minutes Ingredients Blue mash 1kg midnight blue potatoes*, diced 300ml filtered water ¾ cup coconut milk, or milk of your choice 1 teaspoon quality salt ¼ cup cold-pressed olive oil or coconut oil

½ teaspoon cracked black pepper 1 small garlic clove, finely minced Sesame Tempeh 1-2 tablespoons olive oil 2 x 250g blocks unpasteurised tempeh*, each cut into 12 x 7mm-thick long strips ¼ cup tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) ¼ cup toasted sesame oil 2 tablespoons black (or white) sesame seeds, plus extra, for garnishing 2 generous handfuls green beans, trimmed 20-25 snow peas, trimmed 1 small jar sauerkraut, to serve 1 lime, quartered, to serve Cold pressed olive oil & quality salt, to serve 1-2 finger limes (optional)* ¼ cup mint leaves, to serve * You’ll find these ingredients at your local health-food store or online. Directions Blue mash Place the potatoes and filtered water in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, then

simmer for 10-15 minutes or until soft. Drain. Add remaining blue mash ingredients and mash with a potato masher until smooth. Cover and set aside until ready to serve. Sesame Tempeh Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan and add half the tempeh strips to the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden on both sides. Add half of the tamari, sesame oil and sesame seeds to the pan. Simmer and turn so both sides are coated in the oil and tamari, then set aside and repeat the process with the remaining tempeh strips and the remaining ingredients. At the last minute, steam the green beans and snow peas for 1-2 minutes in a medium saucepan until bright green and crunchy. To assemble Spoon a generous serve of mash on each plate, then top with


steamed greens, tempeh and a generous clump of sauerkraut – keep the jar close by! Squeeze a twist of lime, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt to taste on top of the greens and scatter with mint leaves, extra sesame seeds and a squeeze of finger lime, if you wish.

Thai tofu cakes with pineapple, lime & green chilli salsa

I

have never tried a fish cake. It wasn’t something my mum made for us kids, and becoming vegetarian at 14 didn’t give me much time for adventure. So I don’t know if these tofu cakes are remotely like fish cakes and they certainly aren’t fishy in flavour – but they are super-tasty! These Thai cakes are a great way to introduce tofu to someone who only knows it as bland and tasteless. I would never eat plain tofu on its own and with no flavourings. Tofu is a great sponge for soaking up other flavours, a blank canvas ready to take on everything you throw at it. And then it’s all about the texture. These little shallow-fried, crumbed cakes really do hit the spot! More-ish and delectable, with a taste explosion from all the usual fresh Thai suspects – coriander, lime juice, pineapple, fresh ginger and spring onions. It brings the tropical to the table in just one bite! Makes: 24 cakes Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 20 minutes Ingredients 1 small garlic clove ½ cup coriander leaves 2 teaspoons quality salt, or to taste if you like less salt

Place patties in the fridge to chill before frying. Meanwhile, make the salsa.

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 30g piece fresh or frozen ginger, finely grated 2 tablespoons lime juice 2 spring onions, white part only (save the green part for the pineapple salsa) 500g firm non-GMO organic tofu, roughly chopped ¼ cup besan (chickpea) flour 1 cup rice crumbs Coconut oil, for frying 24 Thai basil leaves, to serve (optional) Pineapple, lime & green chilli salsa 1½ cups finely chopped pineapple 1 medium green chilli 1 tablespoon lime juice ¼ cup finely diced red onion ½ teaspoon quality salt 1 tablespoon shredded coriander leaves 1 tablespoon very finely sliced spring onions, green part only Directions Place garlic, coriander, salt, sesame oil, ginger, lime juice and white part of spring onions in a food processor and blend until combined. Add the tofu and blend until just combined. You don’t want the mixture too smooth and paste-like. Scrape down the sides as necessary, then add the besan flour and ½ cup of the rice crumbs and pulse until it’s all mixed in thoroughly. Scrape the mixture into a bowl. Shape mixture into approximately 24 round, flat cakes, then roll cakes in the remaining rice crumbs to coat and place on a plate lined with baking paper.

Heat a frying pan with a little coconut oil (½ tablespoon works well) until medium to hot, then add the little cakes. Fry until golden on each side. Sometimes the crumb coating can get a little thirsty on the second side, so add a little more oil if you wish. Keep cooked cakes warm in the oven until they all are done. Serve warm Thai tofu cakes on a Thai basil leaf (if using) with salsa on the side or spooned on top of the cakes. Fantastic! Pineapple, lime & green chilli salsa To make the salsa, combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Transfer to a little dish.

The top 6

limiting beliefs

keeping female entrepreneurs

stuck


D

o you feel like there’s an invisible tug holding you back from reaching your full potential as an entrepreneur? Most of the time, the only obstacles that stand in the way between female entrepreneurs and success are their self-limiting beliefs.

In a nutshell, limiting beliefs are perceptions that we have about ourselves and the world around us that limit us in some way. They can be a product of an experience in the past, and accepted it as truth, coloring our perception and attracting more of the same. To overcome your limiting beliefs, you need to identify what they are, accept them without judgement and choose new beliefs with actions to enforce and anchor. Take a look at the top 6 limiting beliefs keeping female entrepreneurs stuck and see if any of them sound familiar.

1

I’ll have to sacrifice my personal life

One of the biggest limiting beliefs of female entrepreneurs is that they will have to sacrifice their personal life to follow their entrepreneurial spirit. Add a marriage, children and a pet or two into the equation and you’ve got yourself a ticking time bomb. Will your personal and work life be able to coexist in harmony or is it doomed from the very start? While this is a scary thought you need to take it as it is – just a possibility, not a guaranteed outcome. You’re the one in control of your life and you choose how you will live it.

2

What if it’s not perfect?

Let’s be honest – there’s no such thing as perfection. What might seem ‘perfect’ to you today might seem terrible to you tomorrow. You will always be evolving, professionally and personally, and so will your perception of things. So rather than racking your brain to get it right tomorrow, make it happen today. Don’t use perfectionism as an excuse to procrastinate. Setting high expectations for yourself is great, but it should not come at a price of doing nothing.

3

Others can do it better than me

While you should look to other entrepreneurs for inspiration, you should not compare your potential with theirs. Every entrepreneur has something different to offer the world. Wondering why you haven’t reached the same success as others will only lead you to chase other people’s dreams instead of pursuing your own. Learn to embrace your uniqueness and use it to help others.

4

Is this really what I want?

When self-doubt kicks in, it can be difficult to think with a clear head. Questions like – “why I am I doing this?”, “what are my motives?” and “do I have the experience and skills to see this through?” can be enough to drive most female entrepreneurs to inactivity. But what if hope is replaced with and intuitive knowing, self-doubt morphs into self-acceptance? Well, in that case, what was once limiting, becomes limitless.

5

I don’t deserve to be successful

This limiting belief makes you feel like you don’t deserve recognition for your contribution to the world. However, this is anything but true. Anything that is a result of innovation, zeal and hard work deserves to be recognised. Don’t underestimate what you can do, and the gifts and abilities you possess. As soon as you acknowledge your self-worth, so will others.

6

Nobody cares about what I have to say

Do you feel like you have a wealth of knowledge to share, but fear it’s not enough? Learning is perpetual. And your knowledge might be what someone needs to put two and two together. So don’t doubt yourself for a second. Be heard right now and be an inspiration to those hungry for knowledge – knowledge only you can provide. The good news is that you can overcome these limiting beliefs. The first step is self-acceptance. Accept that you’re not perfect, embrace your flaws and seize life’s opportunity. Believe in yourself and you will see others believe in you. After all, being an entrepreneur is fundamentally a journey of self-belief and assisting others on theirs.


When Your Intuition Leads You to

Creating Videos That Change the World! I believe that there are so many stories out in the world that need to see the light of day and one of the best ways you can share these stories is using video. You can quickly create stunning videos today using your smartphone, and it is so exciting to see how far the video has come from the days when I used to lug around heavy gear to create the same content. I wanted to share this story because I see so many people who have incredible video ideas but they

question their idea and end up not doing anything about it. They end up thinking it is too hard and then let it go. Those ideas. The ones that seem impossible or weird. They are the gold you are searching for.

I kept asking this very question every day for two weeks. Sure enough one morning in the shower a clear image popped into my mind of an elephant taking photographs with a camera.

In 2011 after working for 15 years in Television, directing celebrities and some of the biggest musicians in Australia. I had had enough. I lost my way and was so tired of the ego-driven world I seemed to be surrounded by. This was when I started to do some soulsearching and I knew something had to change. I kept asking myself every day this question:

This image in my mind was as clear as anything. I had just started to learn about animal communication from a well know animal communicator in Australia and began to understand that some of the ideas you receive may not even be your own. (now that’s another story.) I came out of the shower and spoke to my partner Michael. I told him about my crazy idea. To my surprise, he said wow go for it.

“What would it take for something to show up that would make a difference in the world and use my video skills?”

My idea initially was to go to Thailand and find the elephant that may have telepathically communicated with me


an image of learning the camera. I had no idea where this clear image came from because up until now I knew nothing about elephants and didn’t have a mad passion for them. I love all animals and knew nothing about them. So I did what most people would do, I packed my bags armed with my camera and no knowledge about elephants and set off to try and find this elephant that may have communicated with me. I know it sounds crazy right! I thought it was too, but something inside me was compelled me to follow it through. This idea was the very thing I was looking for to spark my creativity, enthusiasm and my love for video again. I have always had a special connection to animals, but somehow this idea drove me to do things that I have never acted upon before. It was surreal. I sold my car and went to Thailand for three months. What started as a quest to find one elephant ended up being so much more. I quickly realized how easy it would be to teach an elephant how to use a camera and didn’t want to open up a way for them to be exploited, so I knew that my mission was more about elephant consciousness as a whole, not just about one elephant. As it turns out the very first elephant I happen to meet had just finished

filming a Samsung phone advert where the elephant had taken photos. I had no idea about this until I got to Thailand. Things like this kept happening the whole way through making this documentary. I also had to deal with my doubt and skepticism along the way which had me question the project and stop on more than one occasion. When you set out on an idea like this, you think it is taking you in one direction, but you realise that it so much more. I am so happy I followed my intuition because I learned so much about myself, my business and about the world through this process. As well as helping an endangered species share a different type of story. This quest helped me to find myself; it helped me to build confidence in front of the camera. It gave me a cause to fight for. It also taught me that if I can go overseas on my own to do a documentary, then I can teach others to do the same. (which we now do) The story has turned into more than I could ever imagine. There is so much to learn about elephants. For example, elephants have long been known to mourn their dead. They are known as the sharmans of the Savanna and a healing ability that many are unaware of. There is so much magic that these magnificent animals have that it is important to share before it is

too late and we have no more left. They also have a well-developed system of communication that makes use of all of their senses - hearing, smell, vision, and touch - including an exceptional ability to detect vibrations through the ground and predict extreme weather events. We humans all use WiFi signals every single day, and yet we don’t see them. Is it possible there is an unseen communication that we are just starting to understand? More importantly, are elephants trying to communicate with us? These are all questions that I explore in the documentary. If you are reading this right now and you are lost or looking for an idea to change the world. You need to start asking the question “What will it take for ---- to show up” as I did above. Don’t underestimate what one flash of an image in your mind can do for you if you follow it through. The answer does come. If you find you get these weird and wonderful ideas about things you don’t even know anything about. Follow it as I did. You just never know where and how it is going to change the world.

When Life Is Full of Force and You Need More Flow From a young age we are led to believe that our actions determine the course of our lives. We admire people who work hard, find motivation in rags to riches stories and love go-getters. Why? Well, because action seems to be a better solution than inaction. When we face a problem, we are encouraged to do something about it rather than accept it without a fight. We are instilled with the belief that it takes a lot of hard work, determination and effort to achieve our goals in life. Inaction, or cruising through life, on the other hand, is seen as a sign of privilege and laziness – or so it seems


It’s important to differentiate between a forced life and a flowing life. A forced life has the elements of resistance, anxiety, confusion and MAKING things happen, while a natural flow is when things line up, it feels effortless and synchronistic events fall into our lives in accordance for our highest good. It’s what feels right to you - to swimming with the flow of the current, not against it.

Seize Unlikely Opportunities – It’s neither good nor bad. You’ve probably heard of the saying sometimes the best things in life will come knocking on your door when you least expect them. Whoever said this sure knew what they were talking about. And just think about it. How many times has a ‘negative’ experience turned out to be just what you need? Perhaps you were fired from a job that led you to start your own successful business. Or you ended a relationship you felt obligated to stay in, and then met the love of your life. Although an experience may seem hard or devastating, it may be the opportunity needed. Everything happens for a reason so let life flow. It might be a scary thought to just let things be, but after all, you have created this opportunity for a positive outcome…which may not yet be revealed.

Find Strength in Failure What devastates us most in life is failure – failure to satiate our ego or

live up to other people’s expectations of us. This fear of failure leads us to be confined by the invisible shackles of “what if”. What if I don’t succeed? What if I’m wrong? What if I disappoint those closest to me? These doubts can push us to take forced road, deterring us from our desires and set up the very thing we are trying to avoid. In every failure is in fact, a tiny success. Every time you fail at something, you come out of the situation wiser, stronger and more mature. Moving from force to flow is about listening to your inner guidance – your feelings and taking inspired action to lead you to exactly where you need to be…. And this could include being led to what is perceived as a failure. Look at failures as essential building blocks towards personal growth and success. It’ll make your journey through life much more gratifying and objective.

Plan Less, Live More It’s easy to get stuck in a cycle of habit and routine. We get so used to life going in a certain direction that we are sometimes afraid of drifting off course. As a result we end up planning every aspect of lives: creating a controlled existence. But where does this leave the joy of spontaneity? As much as you want to be able to control and influence an outcome, you are not almighty. Stop looking at life like another page out of your daily planner that you can cross out as complete. Instead of fearing the unknown, learn to embrace it. Step outside your comfort zone and live in the present, not tomorrow. As John Lennon once said “Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.” Trust in your instincts and believe that things will fall into place on their own accord. Sometimes the best thing you can

do is surrender to the flow of life. Rather than make things happen, let life happen instead and let go. Move from force to flow. Take pleasure in the unknown and find peace in the unexpected. Only then will you learn to appreciate life working for you and all its fluidity, leading you down a path towards what you really need to experience.


They get the answers they came for and then they go back to the party, quickly forgetting what Reader A told them. Nothing in their life changes and they go back to life as if nothing had happened. If this seems like you as a reader right now, this could be a problem because… You’re not taken seriously as

a Tarot Reader

You have little or no impact

on the person you’re reading for

They’re rarely going to take

action on what you say.

Is that enough for you? If it is, that’s your choice… but I believe Tarot can be so much more powerful than just a party-trick. If your instinct are telling you that there’s something more to Tarot- that it can really make a difference in those whom you read for- I’m here to validate that intuitive hunch for you. It’s possible to have a Tarot practice that’s taken seriously, one that can make a difference in people’s lives; a practice like ‘Reader B’s:’ She’s studied the Tarot cards meanings and learned all she could about reading Tarot for others… but she didn’t stop there. She has learned to connect intuitively with the Tarot and create memorable experiences for the people she does


readings for. Her clients are more than willing to pay $100s for a reading with her. More importantly, they feel like they got their money’s worth and then some because their reading powerfully changed the course of their lives. Instead of quickly forgetting what was told to them, they use the information provided to make better decisions, live inspired lives, and manifest their goals. ‘Reader B’ has helped her clients do amazing things such as: Leave a career of 20 years to pursue the dream of

being an energy healer

Turn life around and finally attract an ideal partner

… results that didn’t go away after the client left. This reader’s advice helps create changes that last years– it’s literally life-changing for her clients. Which reader would you love to be? Being a Trusted Tarot Advisor like ‘Reader B’ also means that: You help your clients create lives they love You help people make decisions they may have

been putting off

You help them see the possibility of a new path–

one that is in alignment with who they really are and what they want to manifest most in this lifetime.

When someone asks you for a reading, their lives are going along a certain path. And for most of them, they’re living by default. If they keep on that path, it’s going to stay the same for the rest of their lives. Unless something changes for them, they’re going to be following the same path, with the same habits and choices, five, ten, fifteen years from now. But as a Trusted Advisor, when you lay out the cards, you’re able to show them what different paths are available to them and what they might have as an experience along each of those different paths. Then they can make conscious choices about which path to choose instead of just being led by habits and past programming. But that level of conversation between you and someone you read for can only happen if they take it seriously. And that can only happen if YOU take it seriously. So how can you take your Tarot readings more seriously and therefore be taken more seriously whenever you do a reading for someone? The first thing you can do to take your Tarot readings more seriously is to practice – with people other than your family and friends. Practicing with the people you are in close relationships with is great, but they might not provide you with quality, unbiased feedback on

your readings. It’s important to find people who are open to providing you feedback that will help you improve your readings for the future. Offering readings at no cost with the clear expectation of the client providing feedback is a great way to get started with this.

When that happens, you’ll be taken seriously by others, as well. Your readings will have a meaningful impact on the people you read for- not just advice they’ll find entertaining and then forget after they leave, and you’ll go from a Party-Trick to a Trusted Advisor when it comes to Tarot.


5 steps to find the

clarity within the

S o u n d S

confusion l i k e

That’s the nature of confusion and within it, lies the answer to your dilemma. But before you open the door to calling clarity in, have you been experiencing this? Start – stop Yes – no Good – bad I don’t know, can’t cope, maybe I’ll do nothing. What’s that? Feeling relief…..oh, I’m asleep.

a

c o n t r a d i c t i o n ?

Confusion is code for; I want it but I can’t have it, over and over again - a contradiction in your beliefs creating conflict and confusion. Confusion results because a new way of being, or situation is calling you to move beyond the old way of thinking and feeling.

Imagine sitting on your nice comfy couch and you hear a voice calling you from the front of the house and at the same time you are hearing a voice call you from the back. If Welcome to the battle of competing you go out the front, you will be polarised thoughts, packaged into exposed to the neighbourhood (you specific beliefs with emotional aren’t wearing much) and if you go engines attached. out the back, well it’s protected,

fenced and contained....nowhere to go. yes, even you balcony people are fenced in! The dilemma and confusion builds momentum....you need to make a choice, where you will go - but you can only be in one place at the same time. Have you tried splitting yourself in two lately? Did it work for you? So then what? Ask a friend, your family, or write a list of pro’s and con’s? This can help but it also adds more


layers of choice. It moves you away from your feelings, your inner compass pointing the way out. Why? Other people will often give advice based on their own experiences and at best encourage you to take a leap of faith or at worst discourage you from embracing the new. What you are really listening for is something they are saying to resonate with you deep down. Writing pros and cons may give you an analytical snap shot, but is it just words and an exercise in risk management you are debating? Beliefs that feel good are hindered by beliefs that feel bad. Let’s take some examples of big decisions that can leave you sitting

on the proverbial confusion fence. #1 You have emotionally left the relationship, spend limited time with your partner but still remain confused about how you feel and what to do next. #2 You want to leave your job and start your own business but you can’t seem to motivate yourself to plan a course of action. Let’s first work with #1 The impulse to leave your unfulfilling relationship has been chipping away for a while and the momentum has been building to such an extent that you are now feeling uncomfortable, frustrated, heavy and confused. How do you bring yourself into alignment with your desires to bring a new lease on life and a good dose of happiness.

Begin by dissecting the beliefs holding you in the relationship and link your emotions with this belief examples of old beliefs I’ll be lonely and won’t find anyone else – lost, sad It’s hard to meet new people – sad, lonely I could stay with my partner, it won’t be so bad if make an effort to be nice – compromised, trapped I will be financially unstable if I leave the relationship – afraid, powerless My kids will suffer if we split up - guilty examples of new beliefs..... My friends have been through this and they are happier than ever with new partners hope, excitement


Are You Suffering The Effects Of Being A High Performing

Woman?

What is the soul secret of being a high performing woman, being true to herself whilst nourishing her wellbeing?    By Mardi Keyes     www.mardikeyes.com

The high performing woman is easy to identify in today’s society. They are distinctively graceful and present skillfully balanced in their professional role. These women have maximum impact with their actions, achieve their desire d results without using force and they stand in their authentic power by having the motive of “we” not “me”. They aim for harmony as an outcome in any professional opportunity to in some way better the world, its people and the environment. I have been very fortunate in my professional career to witness the fast and wonderful evolution of the professional woman. To observe the great heights we are

achieving and the successes we are embracing globally has been gratifying. How time has truly changed our role, our significance and our opportunities in literally just a few decades. We are privileged that our lives now provide diverse prospects allowing for creativity with the removal of previous professional female generational boundaries and beliefs.

“However, as quick as the great rise of the professional woman has transpired and is still occurring, one of which I am actively participating in, I have also witnessed the negative physical, emotional and mental health affects on the high performing woman”

“However, as quick as the great rise of the professional woman has transpired and is still occurring, one of which I am actively participating in, I have also witnessed the negative physical, emotional and mental health affects on the high performing woman” However, as quick as the great rise of the professional woman has

transpired and is still occurring, one of which I am actively participating in, I have also witnessed the negative physical, emotional and mental he alth affects on the high performing woman. I have watched women start to deflate and struggle to achieve their success. I see women move away from their true self and behave in ways that do not align with their values or beliefs. Their actions to solve challenges and engage in new opportunities results in undesired outcomes that leaves them exhausted and ma ny asking themselves the question “to reach my success do I need to be someone other than myself”? As the professional evolution for high performing women opened the door for opportunity it has also delivered us with new challenges, new parameters and new directives to navigate our way in this business landscape. As we enter this new terrain, it is crucial that we must also focus on our internal self to be the truest form of our professional self. That will allow us to be the most impactful and influential leader and change agent, pioneering in our chosen fields. How do we achieve this? What is the soul secret of being a high performing woman,


being true to herself whilst nourishing her wellbeing? There are three vital self-elements that these women display and embrace on an internal level and clarity is the key to all three. This clarity allows for a unique equality of balance and development that aids in aligning to our true professional self. 1. Spirit: simply put this is the non-physical part of a person, which is the seat of emotions and character or as we better know it, our soul. A high performing woman is in total sync with her souls emotions, she taps into her highly defined intuition, which provides her with unique guidance. Her intuition accompanied with her wisdom, knowledge and understanding opens opportunity to bring forth her artistic performances in her professional role, which delivers the desired results for a deeper impact. 2. Identity: relates to our characteristics that determine what and who we are. The high performing woman intricately understands her reference points that provide the framework to her identity. The balance in her identity is derived from the internal masculine and feminine traits, which we all have within us. The high performing woman knows which traits compliment each other and when to engage in them to get the best results, they may engage in the feminine trait of creativity however accompany this with the male trait of goal-directed to get the desired outcome. 3. Significance: this is your internal self meaning as to why you have chosen to engage in a certain professional function, position or interest, in this particular moment. The high performing woman understands intricately her essence in the role she is undertaking with a view that her work will be sustainable and enhances the business world and its contents in some form. As a high performing woman, it is important that we keep an internal awareness regarding these vital internal elements. As professional change and experiences enter into our lives, it can push us into a flux state and our checks will be pivotal in bringing ourselves back into a balance so we are in true alignment to our professional self, our beliefs and values. Take some time to think, observe and feel about those internal self-elements that contrib ute to you being your true professional self and a well-balanced woman in today’s fanatical business world. Keep nurturing your goals, use your intuition, engage in both the masculine and feminine traits that compliment each other to achieve your desired results and know your essence to be an impactful and influential high performing woman all whilst nourishing your wellbeing. Above all remember this “authentic participation is the most gracious power a high performing woman can hold in today’s progressive business world”.

You will never find yourself in a point in time when the subject of relationships is not an active part of your now experience, for everything you perceive or notice or know is because of your relationship with something else. Without a comparative experience, you would be unable to perceive or focus any kind of understanding within yourself. Therefore, it is accurate to say that without relationships you could not exist at all. It is our desire that an even g reater awareness of whoyou-arewill awaken within you by reading this book, as you begin to explore the variety of relationships that you are already living. It is our desire that you experience an enhanced appreciation of your planet; your body; your family; your friends; your enemies; your gover nment; your systems; your food; your finances; your animals; your work; your play; your pur pose; your Source; your Soul; your past, your future, and your present. . . .

E ver y Rel ati o ns hi p I s E ter na l Excerpted from book, “The Vor tex, Where Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships” http://www.abrahamhickslawofattraction.com/ lawofattractionstore/product/SBVor tex.html

It is our desire that you come to remember that e v er y relationship is Eter nal and that once it has been established, it is a part of your Vibrational mak eup fore v er more, and that, in your po werful no w— where all that you hav e become conv er ges with all that you are no w b e c omi n g—y o u hold the po wer to create. A jo yful life is not about gaining control of the factors that sur round you. A joyful life is about coming into alignment with whoyou-are. Joy is not about controlling other peopl e or circumstances. Joy is about controlling your own Vibrational relationship between the physical you and the Non- Physical You. It is alignment with Source that is joy or love or success or satisfaction.


Must “Family Har mony” Inhibit Per sonal Freedom? A person who is consistentl y inside his o wn Vorte x will find har mony with other people e v en when the y are not finding har mony with him. Ever ything that ever yone desires— whether it is a material object, a physical condition, a financial situation, or a har monious relationship—is wanted for only one reason: T hey believe they will feel better in having it. Once you show your self— through practicing increasing ly better-feeling thoughts, through making lists of positive aspects, by indulging in Rampages of A ppreciation—that you can maintain your alignment with your own Inner Being and predominantly stay inside your Vortex of Creation, you will find har mony in the world around you, also.

A ppreciation, Yo u r Key to the Vortex People often have a dif ficult time conce ptualizing a creator, or a force, or the process through which something as amazing as your planet, spinning in its orbit in perfect proximity to other planets, could have come to be. And yet, even thou gh you do not under stand it, and cannot begin to explain it, you are—ever y one of you—continuing to add to the expansion of all of that through your living of life and the launching of rockets into the Vibrational Reality that will someday be fully realized by physical inhabitants. We have written this book because we want to call your attention to the Vibrational Reality that you are in the process of creating. We want you to be aware of your Vortex of Creation; and most important of all, we want you to find a way, by the deliberate directing of your own conscious thought, to become a Vibrational Match to the contents of your swirling Vibrational Vortex of Creation, because ever y desire that has been bor n within you thus far exists there, just as you have dreamed it to be, waiting for your alignment.

Ever ything that you see that is now physical, tangible, visible, audible reality was previously swirling in a Vibrational Vortex of Creation; for fir st there is thought, then thought-for m, thenreality as you know it in your physical world. Your dreams and desires and ideas of improvement have been received by the Broader part o f you; and as that older, larger, wiser part of you focuses purely upon your requests, holding no resistance whatsoever, the powerful La w of Attraction responds. And then, all cooperative components (all components with same Vibrational frequency) are drawn into this swirling Vibrational Reality, this precur sor to the physical reality that is now available to you. Only one thing is necessar y for this Vibrational Reality to become real in a physical sense, manifested into things and experiences that you can see and hear and smell and taste and touch: You hav e to go into the Vorte x! T he k e y to getting inside your Vibrational Vorte x of Creation; of e xperiencing the absolute absence of resistance; of achie ving complete alignment with all that you hav e become and all that you desire, and of bringing to your physical e xperience e v er ything that you desire—is being in the state of a ppreciation. And there is no more important object of attention to which you must flo w your a ppreciation than that of self. T he habit of thought, or belief, that holds most people outside of their Vorte x of Creation, more than all other thoughts put together, is the lack of a ppreciation of self.

Wh at I f We’re Feari n g a Wo rl d w i de F i n an c i a l C r i s i s ? Ev er y emotion that you feel, good or bad, is about the relationship between your cur rent thought and the understanding of the Source within you on the same topic. Some people are feeling acute fear or anxiety because they are per sonally, right now, without work or income. But the fear that most people are feeling today is because of their neg ative speculation about how bad conditions may yet become and the neg ative

impact that those future, unwanted conditions may have on their per sonal lives. As more people obser v e hardship and strik e a tense, resistant pose—and therefore disallo w their o wn WellBeing—others use them as their reason to do the same. And, in a v er y short time, a v er y ne gativ e patter n of resistance can s wee p through your population. T he good ne ws in this scenario is that, in e v er y moment that e v er y person is feeling ne gativ e emotion about the economic state, Vibrational requests for more abundance are launched—and those requests are heard clearl y, and responded to immediatel y, by Source. And a Non-Physical, Vibrational Vorte x of Creation be gins to s wirl in po werful response to that po werful asking—and all compatible components are dra wn into the Vorte x for the discov er y and relief of those who allo w themselv es to be dra wn inside. It is natural that you thriv e, and the resources are there for all to thriv e. But chronic thoughts of shorta ge, or chronic thoughts of pushing a gainst those who are thriving, hold you in contradiction to your o wn desires and, more important, to what you hav e put into your Vorte x of Creation for yourself. If you seek financial well-being for yourself—you must praise it where v er you see it. If you would lik e more abundance for yourself, personall y, or for o thers you care about—you must not criticize those who are e xperiencing abundance. W hen you criticize or condemn or push a gainst anything, you activate an opposing Vibration to what you seek. Ev er y time. No e xce ptions.

Sel fi s hnes s, A nd th e L aw o f A ttr a c ti o n? Some of fer criticism because we place such emphasis on the value of your feeling good, accusing us of teaching selfishness. And we acknowledge that true selfishness is at the ver y core of our teaching because if you are not selfish enough, if you do not care how you feel, if you are not willing to continual-ly redirect your thoughts in the direction of feeling good, you cannot come into


alignment with the Source within you. And unless you are in alignment with the Source within you, you have nothing to give another. Alignment with Source—being inside your Vortex of Creation, becoming one with the true expanded ver sion of you—is the ultimate selfishness. And yes, in that state of alignment, all good things must come to you. Ever y rocket of des ire that you have launched will be fulfilled. Tr ue success is not the attainment of things, or the achie v ement of tasks, or the achie v ement of financial abundance. Tr ue success is the coming into alignment with You. Yes, selfishl y aligning with your desires, your clarity, your confidence, your kno wledge, your lov e—with Yourself !

Con tra st Really Isn’t a bout Somethin g Goin g Wrong We want you to reach the place where you are willing . . . not just willing, deter mined . . . not just deter mined, ea ger . . . to let go of the need of control of things that are uncontrollable—lik e what anybody else is doing—and giv e your undivided attention to the onl y thing you can control, which is ho w you feel in any giv en circumstance. Nothing ever goes wrong, because ever y piece of contrast, no matter how wrong it seems to be, is always helping you to clarify what it is you do want. And that’s the thing that we want you to remember most of all: T he contrast, no matter ho w it looks in any moment, is contributing mightil y to your e xpansion. And the thing that you call “things going wrong” in your life e xperience are actuall y onl y the distance between the things that are so right and your cur rent perspectiv e about it. Life is supposed to be good for you. You live, whether you know it or not . . . you live as the full recipients of a hur ricane of g race that is f lowing toward you, at all times, in answer to all that you have been asking for, and the

best way to get a whif f of it is to stand right where you are, right now, and do your best to find the best of the positive aspects that sur round you. Look for things to appreciate, even if there aren’t that many. Look for things to feel good about, even if there are more things to feel bad about. Give your attention, as best you can, to the best things that are going on in your experience, with the deter mination to train yourself into the best-feeling Vibration that you can find right here and now. Today, no matter where I’m going, no matter what I’m doing, no matter who I’m doing it with, it is m y dominant intent to look for and find things that feel good when I see them; when I hear them; when I smell them; when I taste them, when I touch them. It is m y dominant intent to solicit, e xperience, and e xa g gerate and talk about and re v el in, the best of what I see around me here and no w. As that is your mantra, you will tune yourself to the best Vibration that you can reach for, and then the best, and then the best, and then the best— and then the best. And then, before you know it, you will be vibrating in the vicinity of what’s going on in your Vibrational Escrow, in your Vibrational Reality.

A re Yo u Rea dy To Meet Yo ur Vo r t ex ? T his Vibrational Reality is spinning and becoming, and if you are in anger or fear or despair, you’re nowhere near it. When you get in the vicinity of hope, when you start feeling hopeful, you’re within range. When you feel hopeful, it’s drawing you in; it’s drawing you in. And once you begin to believe or expect good things to come—you’re in the Vortex. And once you get in there, you’re no longer the only uncooperative component. Now you are a cooperative component. Now you get to rendezvous with your money. You get to rendezvous with your vitality.

You get to rendezvous wi th your clarity. You get to rendezvous with your lover, with your loving neighbor, with the things of your environment that you’ve been wishing for. You get to rendezv ous with all of the good stuf f that you’ v e put there once you be gin to get in the vicinity of what feels good. And you can train yourself there—you can do it in a day. You hav e control of e v er ything that rendezv ous with you when yo u get control of the Vibration that you of fer, and you get control of the Vibration that you of fer when you care about ho w you feel. It really is more ir relevant than you think what the other people in your life want, but what is relevant is what you think they want. So, if you could just eternally look toward what you want and disreg ard ever ything else, the Univer se would have to give you what you want, and i n so many more cases than you would believe, from where you cur rently stand. Often, you can get e xactl y what you want from the components that are already present in your life. You don’ t hav e to go to a whole ne w place; you just hav e to chronicall y define a whole ne w Vibration. T he relationship between your e xpectation and what you’ re seeing is the only thing that you ever have the ability to feel around. We all mak e too much of all of this. It is simpler than we all mak e it out to be. Be easy about it. Be kind to yourself. Do things that feel fun. Look for things that bring you relief, and just easil y mov e into that place (your Vorte x) where all things that you want hav e already been lined up for you. T here is g reat love here for you. And, as always, we remain blissfully and Eter nally incomplete.

Nothing Happens by

Chance

Meet Kitty Thomas Sharing Her Story About Her Life Journey and a chance meeting with Symmone Gordon – Business Intuitive

I

n my early 20’s (I am now 43), I had what I affectionally refer to as an entrepreneurial seizure! I created an opportunity and turned a working wharf into a venue. I went on to host some of the biggest and best events Australia has ever seen including launching Virgin Atlantic into Australia with Sir Richard Branson, hosting the largest off premise fashion week event ever held in Australia, Dance parties for 8,000+ people and many other awesome events. One of the hosted events was run by a promoter, who undersold the event. I was forced to make the tough decision to close the event 3 days before it was meant to happen so I didn’t lose any more money than I had too. I lost around $150k that day. I had no idea how to recover from such a loss and proceeded to stick my head in the sand. That’s where it remained for the next 5 years, pretending all was ok in my world, when it was so far from OK it wasn’t funny. When I finally decided it was time to deal with “things”, I began to negotiate my way out of the situation. Through hard work and persistence

I managed to save myself thousands of dollars, my credit rating and most importantly my sanity. After I got myself out of debt, I began to help my family and friends do the same thing… people often suggested I start a business helping other people get their lives back on track by getting them out of debt. I was always hesitant as I had been in the conversation of “Debt” for so long that I didn’t want to stay in the heaviness of the conversation any longer, I was just happy helping my friends break free. Years on and a now a sole parent of two, I was busy living life and suddenly suffered a massive health scare that literally stopped me in my tracks. I ruptured a disc in my neck. I needed emergency surgery to get me out of the excruciating pain I was in. I took months off work and life to recover and I realized that there was no more time to waste, that it was time to live my purpose. And so, Debt Angels was born. In short, Debt Angel Solutions is all about taking the pressure, significance and heaviness off people who are in debt distress. Holding their creditors away from them by either

reducing or freezing the interest/ payments, fees and charges along with negotiating reduced settlements. We work with our clients to find alternate solutions and empower them to break free from debt, take back control and reset their lives. I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason and I was lucky enough to end up at an event in Noosa in late 2017. It was a true alignment of the planets if you know what I mean. At the event, which consisted of 4 different sub events over 3 days, I kept ending up opposite this lady Symmone, literally! We spoke about many things over the course of these few days and I felt as the time and coincidences went on that she was very insightful and exactly the type of person I was looking to attract into my life at the time. I was stuck in my life and my business. I needed clarity to move forward. I only had a small window of time before I headed back to Sydney after the event, so I called Symmone to see if she had time for a chat. I went and met with her and after speaking with her again I knew she was the right guide and coach for me. The light Symmone has shone ne me is not only “how” and “where”


but also “why” I struggle from time to time with things like taking the business where it needs to go and why I had been sabotaging myself. I am very clear that my business is my calling and purpose, and that it is so much bigger than me. However, I have been a little confronted about who I need to be to take this remarkable opportunity to the next level, so as many as possible can have access to this wonderful life changing solution, that truly allows people to get out of debt, reset their lives and begin to authentically live their true purpose. I shared with Symmone my commitment to grow and become the leader I need to be. As such, she is unwilling to put up with my BS and excuses and only listens to me from a place of love and greatness. She leaves me no room but to be the person I need to be to bring this alternate strategy to the masses. #thereisanotherway

Honoring myself is also becoming front and center – even though, if I am honest, I still resist it. I have started to own my role in this extraordinary company and I am beginning to get comfortable with the lingering question I still have, “why me?” Symmone had me realize that “it just is what it is”, and there is no point resisting it. Best to embrace it and pull up my big girl pants and be who I need to be for all the people who will benefit from the remarkable service we offer…. There is too much goodness that comes as a result of what we do, for me to waste time doubting myself. We are creating a ripple effect of people realizing their own purpose – through shedding the burden of debt – in turn allowing them to shine. Symmone helped me realize, indulging in questions that won’t change even if there was an answer, make’s no sense. If you can see you are blocked and not able to move forward due to your

own fear and you are ready to have someone be brutally honest with you, and more importantly you are ready to listen and act, then you will really benefit from time with an intuitive coach. If you are lucky enough to cross paths with the wonderful Symmone, then I invite you to reach out to her with both hands and hang on for the ride. Her coaching is impacting me at a level that resonates deeper than I realize most of the time. I am dealing with my demons and powering forward with the love and support of this remarkable lady. In short Symmone is helping me (the identity) get out of the way so I can fulfil on my purpose. I really don’t mean to sound egotistical, that is the last thing I want to portray, I merely think that there is an awakening of consciousness happening here, and we can choose to either let our identity rule the show or our purpose.

As confronting as it is, I choose my purpose and I feel the road is a little less scary walking hand in hand with the wonderful Symmone.

ife is filled with new dreams, hopes, desires and intentions. I’d like to share with you a very special meditation, something magical and powerful to assist you to come into full alignment. This meditation, Kirtan Kriya, was one of the first meditations that Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga, ever taught. The meditation has many benefits and is a catalyst for positive change as it’s a very powerful spiritual cleanser. Physically this meditation stimulates the pituitary and

pineal glands, bringing total mental balance and harmony to the individual psyche. It also helps you focus and centre yourself. I personally love Kirtan Kriya because it magically works on whatever you need and in the order you need it. For example, if you are ready to let go of something in your life but just can’t seem to move on, this meditation will gracefully carry you through the change and deliver you to a new way of being.

In fact, it ALL begins in our minds and dependent on our previous experiences will provide the filtering system to determine our overall outlook on life, namely, whether we are happy or sad, optimistic or pessimistic. Our thoughts and emotions create our manifested reality. We then make decisions based on what we believe and how we imagine we will feel once those desires land in our lap. Our reality becomes the sum of our beliefs.

If we believe life happens FOR us (taking conscious responsibility for what we think), then no matter what happens, we cultivate a positive or accepting outlook, in turn this attracts more of the same, lessening fear and improving confidence. Similarly, if we believe life happens TO us (taking no responsibility for our thoughts) we are fearful and disempowered of what life will throw at us next…negative thoughts and emotions remain and we see more of the same, creating stagnancy and fear, impeding the clarity to make decisions. Don’t let your thoughts stop you from being the best version of yourself. Follow these 7 steps to change your mind and choose your thoughts and emotions.

1. Identify Your Self-Limiting Beliefs Look within to identify any beliefs that are holding you back. An easy way to do this is by evaluating yourself through your emotions.

First, write down your top 5 desires. Project yourself into the future, how would it make you feel if you had what you wanted? Relief, happy, satisfied, safe? Now, go into your present moment, close your eyes and breathe deeply. Imagine your desires again. What’s the emotion or thought that comes up? Uncertainty, doubt, fear, worthiness….go deeper, why are they there? Where did this come from? Once you can identify the thoughts, the memory, the time and who or when these self-limiting beliefs entrenched themselves, it’s easier to shift and transform them.

2. Turn Negativity into Positive Action Every time we are in the thick a negative situation, our minds go into fight, flight or freeze. In other words, attack – blame the other person, avoidance, denial or people please to avoid confrontation. All behaviours are in place with the same outcome; to remain emotionally safe. But rather than play the role of a victim or aggressor, understand the trigger within you and take control and transform it into a learning experience to change the outcome into a positive action. To do this, focus less on what you don’t want, to change your internal landscape and enforce it all.

3. Ask for an Objective Opinion Seek out someone who is inspiring and who’s story you resonate with. What challenges did they face? How did they change? It’s looking at adversity and looking at it objectively that can divert your focus from negativity to bring you back into alignment through somebody’s else’s challenges, journey and opinion. Your inner


voice and intuitive radar will ring with knowingness when you hear and feel the words needed for change. Take heed of their advice and personalize their approach to fit your needs.

4. Immerse Yourself into Your Dream Vision Do you spend a chunk of time brooding over the obstacles that separate you from turning your dreams into reality? Instead of focusing on the road blocks, immerse yourself in your vision. How will reaching your dream make you feel? How do you imagine you will change for the better? How will it improve your quality of life? Direct your thoughts and feelings on appreciation and knowingness and it won’t be long before you begin to see the signs of it manifesting breeding more belief and confidence.

5. Appreciate Yourself and Choose Vibrant Emotions A key step to changing your mind is having the courage to do so. Appreciate yourself and what you have accomplished and experienced so far in your life. Focusing on how you want to feel and seeing life with eyes of non-judgement will continue to elevate you. Break your vision into smaller milestones and work towards them. Be appreciative of every accomplishment, it’s self-love delivered in a consistent dose. It’s a far more proactive approach

to bringing in what you desire.

6. Make a Decision to Commit To bring about change, you need to be decisive. Change requires full commitment. Hoping your mind and way of thinking will change overnight is like driving with your eyes closed! You need to understand why and identify where you are now and where you want to be. You need to put in the effort consistently in your pursuit for change and only then will you reap the rewards you desire.

7. Be Accountable and Responsible Finally, accept responsibility and be accountable for your thoughts. This will empower you to steer you back with clear intent to change your mind. After all, they are your thoughts and you are in the driver’s seat. It’s up to you to decide how you wish to direct them. However, be careful not to judge yourself if you aren’t there YET. Your path to change may not be an easy one. It requires courage and determination. However, once you do change your mind, you’ll feel different and lighter. There isn’t a timeframe and you don’t have to rush your journey to change your mind. Take one step at a time and remember to find the silver lining in every thought – and importantly, don’t resist the dark clouds when they gather, they will pass as you re orientate your focus.


5 Big Reasons Why You’ll Never Live Your Dream Life & What You Can Do To Change It Well guess what? You’re not alone in thinking thoughts of selfdoubt or feeling frustrated because of how your life is currently and in fact you can probably put it down to either one, more, or even all of the 5 Big Reasons below

Have you ever wondered why you’re life isn’t going the way you thought it would be by now? Are you frustrated, and even a bit peeved off that others around you seem to have it all while you spin your wheels going nowhere fast? And do you lay awake at night dreaming of a life you perhaps dreamed of long ago, but don’t know how to get it, where to start or might even be a little bit afraid of the unknown?

Ask yourself do you…

Lack of Definite Purpose…You Have All The Gear and No Idea

It’s true. If you don’t have a cr ystal clear vision of what you want exactly; have a burning desire to get it and a workable plan of committed action, then it’s highly unlikely that your dreams will ever become your reality. In fact, I’d say it’d be almost impossible. Truth is, most people simply float through life believing that life happens to them and they have no control over their circumstances. People don’t understand that life is simply a sum of your thoughts, your feelings and your actions. Good, bad or other wise, depending on how you view the world. The great news is…you can have a life you love, once you get clear on what you want and you have a burning desire to go out and get it! Oh yeah, and of course you must take massive action as meditating, praying and complaining alone just won’t cut it!

The Masses Mindset V’S The Masters Mindset…Do you have a winner mindset or a loser mindset?

This is where most people fall down…maybe even you? Through habit of thought and action, you fall victim to mass thinking mentality. In other words, the masses, which are 98% of the population, must see results or evidence of an outcome before they can believe it. The ‘Masters’ however, which are only 2% of the population, actually ‘believe’ the result has already taken place in their mind before any action is taken.


Now, before you make judgment, think about this for a moment. If you do not currently have your dream life, whatever that is, then why not? Do you believe you can or ever will have it? Chances are, if you don’t have it, limiting beliefs; habits and thinking, are keeping you from having it. It’s time to break free of the old way of thinking that’s not ser ving you. You can be, do, or have anything your heart desires…but first you must truly believe it is possible before the evidence appears ;)

You Let Your Past Stories Hold You Back Instead Of Just Kicking Them In The Ass And Moving On…

This is the most common problem of all! I mean…who hasn’t got a ‘whoa is me” stor y right? The stor y horse is dead darling….stop dragging it around, it’s way too heavy! If you want something you don’t have, then you’ll need to do things you haven’t done before to have things you’ve never had. By this I mean letting go of old stories, reasons why, excuses and all the BS that’s keeping you trapped in your unhappy life. My advice is simple. Get help, get a coach, a mentor, read a book, enroll in a course, buy a DVD. Find role models who have what it is that you want and model them. And most importantly…work on yourself harder than you do your job or your business. The payoff is much higher and your life will continually improve as a result I promise you!

You Lack The Courage to Go Out & Get The Life You’d Love To Live & Here’s Why.

They won’t give you permission any time soon, so you may as well go for it. And if you still need permission to shine…then I’m giving it to you right now. It’s been my experience that if you sit and wait for the blessing and encouragement of the world, and all those around you, you’re going to be ver y, ver y disappointed. Just grow some nuts and go get the life you want right now… with the real support of those who truly believe in you!

You’ve forgotten What It’s Like To Dream & Act Big!

Sad, but true. If you’re living a life without happiness, joy, growth and abundance, then you really have forgotten why you’re in this life! You were not meant to live a life of mediocrity. You were born to live a life you truly love… whatever this looks like for you. However, getting and actually living the life you love does take action, commitment, discipline and an attitude to match. The great thing is, you can start from where you are right now by taking massive action in the right direction. Before long, you will notice your life begin to transform into what you give your focus to instead of Start today by writing in extreme detail what your perfect day looks like and what your big juicy reason WHY is. By focusing on your ‘big reason why’ or you’re ‘Chief Aim’, you’ll be in a far greater position to succeed because the reasons you’re putting the effort in for, will be well worth the rewards! Enjoy your journey to living a life you love… on your own terms and I look for ward to seeing you here in the next issue of ‘B elieve.’ With Love, & Gratitude,

Most of you are too worried what ‘others’ might say if you step up and go for your dreams. You know who I’m talking about…the well-meaning friends, family and associates who pretend to have our best interests at heart. Yeah right. Here’s the scoop gorgeous….stuff them all I say. It’s not up to them to give you permission to go chase your dreams….they don’t understand your dreams, nor should they!
