www.treeoflifemagazine.co.uk Dear Friends, We trust you have been gracefully yet fully discovering yourself in slow motion in the beginning of the Year 2014. Happy New You, Newly & Happily Yourself! Wishing you much love, joy and healthy wellbeing. May you be in the flow with all the opportunities to practice self-love, kindness, inner peace, resilience, abundance and interconnectedness. And may everything that comes your way be there for you in the divine timing and space to blossom, awaken and be blessed by the PRESENCE OF being YOU in every moment. We have been resting, reflecting and nurturing our outer & inner being over the festive and January time. We see many people have been also in slowing down energy and ‘waiting’ patiently for the ‘coming’ to arrive. The Tree of Life has gone through a gentle pruning to keep the roots strong yet flexible and allow some time for it to grow in between the subtle deep breaths. It’s already shown us some beautiful, delicate and powerful buds worth exploring. A number of changes have been made to the Tree of Life programme this season and we are awaiting more progress throughout the year, for the better of all. There will be fewer Friday evening speaker events and new more

local/community events will be added on Friday and/or Saturday nights (see below). On Friday 21st March there will be the launch of the Tree of Light Spiritual Community sacred evenings where we all, regardless of what religion or background we follow or came from, can gather and embrace each other’s differences and love unconditionally, co-create together and experience the ONEness. Where we beautiful spiritual beings in our grounded human bodies can celebrate the space between us and become the family where creativity, friendliness and passion is the instrument from which we manifest the magnificent highest self just by being inspiring, sharing ourselves and opening to love. In this season we are honoured to welcome back our dearest speakers Lorna Byrne, Gordon Smith, Barefoot Doctor, Moira Bush, Sandy Newbigging & Dr David Hamilton. It’s a powerful line-up covering important subjects on self-love, money, meditation and angelic presence giving us all faith & hope. The spring Tree of Life Festival will be a flowering celebration of mind, body & spirit wisdom and empowerment. We are deeply touched how all of you are supporting the Tree of Life and we wish that each of you will share your beautiful presence and co-create a wonderful year with us again! Much Love, Light & Prosperity

Launch of the Tree of Light Spiritual Community The higher our vibrations raise, the more we seek out the company of other kindred spirits – it’s a necessity as we realize that our continued growth can’t happen in isolation.

If this vision resonates with you then we would love you to join us in making this spiritual community a reality.

Top 10 Spiritual Tips for Life! by Joginder Singh Bola

Joginder is a Director of Tree of Life and CoEditor of Tree of Life Magazine. He gives talks and runs workshops on self-empowerment and holistic business success. Hear him speak at the Tree of Life Festival on 12 April 2014 (see p19 & backcover). “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them” - Albert Einstein I’ve realised that even in doing the work I love, I was still working too hard and burning myself out, like I would in a corporate job. I had to break this old pattern of behaviour, and so the last two months of taking time off have been truly transformational and healing. I learned so much during this period. Here’s my top 10 insights for a more balanced, fulfilled and happier life! 1. Exercise Everyday – Me and my partner Markéta joined a health club and started exercising regularly everyday – yoga classes, weight-lifting and keep-fit sessions! This one change has made the biggest improvement in the quality of our lives. The yoga classes help with flexibility. The weight-lifting is strengthening the body and mind. All the keep-fit exercises are helping us stay focused and young. I’m much more energized, fresher and alive after going to the gym than ever before – and this vitality then flows into my work, relationships and life generally. This experience is reminding me of one of my favourite sayings ‘The Universe applauds actions not words’. We are ‘mind body & spirit’ and so taking care of the body is nurturing the important ground from which our mind & spirit can soar. 2. Regular Saunas – The native Americans and many other peoples have used sweat lodges and sweating together as a method of spiritual practice for thousands of years. The sweating helps you to release the toxins from your body and purify your system. And that purification goes on to purify your energy and aura and so you emerge feeling re-born and lighter. 3. Cold Dips – After the heat of a sauna or strong exercise to spend some time in cold water or under a cold shower is just exhilarating. It wakesup your whole body and brings you right into the ‘now’ moment like nothing else can. It’s a real awakening experience! 4. Spend Time in Water – Whether it’s having a bath, shower or swimming – spending time in water really helps to refresh your whole being and shift your e-motions. It’s like your aura and energy field is being cleansed by the water and so you step out a freer person.

5. Have more fun & jacuzzis! – Even when you’re doing the work you love, you got to have fun playtime or else your inner child just gets really mad and starts to cause trouble. We love treating ourselves to a nice warm bubbly jacuzzi in the gym after a good work-out! 6. Less is More - Because we were going to the gym everyday we ended up spending less hours at work. But in those less hours we achieved a lot more than we did in the longer hours we were working before. We had new ideas and intuitions come to us because we were in a better space and alignment. Synchronicity and flow started to appear more in our day and the work became much more easier, fun and creative! 7. Take time off to refresh – we took the last half of December & January off from running events so that we had more space for ourselves. In this resting time we were able to have good quality time together, just slow down and really enjoy each other’s company. Also spending more time seeing our family and friends. This quiet period created a gap in which new ideas and ways of doing things could come to us – ideas which won’t have occurred if we just kept carrying on with the old patterns. 8. De-cluttering – You need to let go of the old for the new to come in. We have been doing a process of de-cluttering (and do it regularly) releasing physical clutter from our living environment. As the house becomes less cluttered so do our minds too – old habits start falling away and new pathways can be created. 9. Ask for Guidance – I will often ask for guidance each morning. There is a beautiful pray from A Course in Miracles which I love “What would You have me do? Where would You have me go? What would You have me say, and to whom?”. I’ve often had truly amazing ideas come through from this openness. I asked for guidance in putting this new Tree of Life Magazine & talks programme together – what speakers should I book, what talks & workshops should we have. I even asked for inspiration for writing this article and now it’s flowing! It’s like you become a channel for something greater to come through you and express itself – to guide your daily actions. 10. Meditate regularly – I’ve noticed that the days which start with a short 20 minute period of meditation just flow better than the days where I don’t do this. You eventually realise that you can’t afford to skip meditation – the 20 minutes you save is nothing compared to how much you loose in your clarity and alignment for the day. We have started running weekly free silent meditation sessions every Wednesday lunchtime 12.30 – 1pm and Sunday morning 8am – 9am (see page opposite), please do come and join us. Meditating in a group is an even more powerful experience. Holistic Business Success Coaching with Joginder: One-to-one individual coaching sessions that will empower you to take your holistic business to a new level of success (or help you start your own holistic business if don’t have one yet) - £97 per hour.

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself. - Jean Anouilh


‘Markéta is the Jamie Oliver of raw food.’ Lynne McTaggart, international bestselling author of ‘The Field’ and editorial director of ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’ – one of the world’s most highly praised health newsletters.

The Sexy Raw Food Goddess The Sexy Raw Food Goddess‘ vision is to empower people to nurture, nourish and celebrate all their senses Living by the speed of Light by Markéta Bola Markéta, The Sexy Raw Food Goddess, is a natural nutritionist and raw living food chef of the Tree of Life Cosmic Café who runs raw food classes, workshops and dining experiences in the UK. She is also a certified Hippocrates Health Educator. I have been trying to encourage my parents to eat more green leafy vegetables for decades. My dad has been joking with me whenever a side dish of vegetables appears on his table. He eats it with huge resistance and funny faces to tease me and keeps asking me if his eyes are changing colour to green and if he is turning into a rabbit. I laugh a lot but sometimes I pause and think what happened to us, human beings, that we tend to refuse the most natural and nutritional offerings. On the other hand, I quite understand when we feel healthy and active and we just want to follow the mainstream, so called ‘normal’ and acceptable that is easily available. And it also grounds us in the environment we want to fit in. But did you realize who is responsible for the media and choices of your daily life? Are they the people who studied nutrition and then created products or are they the people who own the dairy, meat, sugar or fish industries? Are you honestly ‘in the flow’ with what is offered to you or are you concerned that it might not work for you for rest of your life? I think that incurable ‘diseases’ of this generation speak for themselves. And there is no doubt that it is reflecting the wholeness of our body-mind-spirit awareness. Do you have wishes of being, feeling, looking, having or doing it your way ‘one day’? But then you’ll have to make a commitment and start changing it all over.

the advertising screen in front of me. After a while I just managed to withdraw myself from it and made an intention to look at something more real. There it was - actually two things hit my attention. Firstly, because it was dark, I spotted the bright illumination of the streetlights everywhere around me. It was delightful to see each light doing its extraordinary work for us to see and be seen. I felt safe. And secondly, as we were moving very slowly, every green light on the traffic lights was like a huge inhale from the bottom of my lungs with such a sparkle in my eyes. It made me alive & grateful. And then I got it. Here, there it is, a message that appears absolutely everywhere. The universal law of life presented by itself. We all need light. We live by the speed of light. Especially when we are stuck. The whole world would not be spinning around. Nature would not been green without light. Without the shining sun we would all disappear and there would not be a shining bright soul that lives and experiences the lows and highs of this planet. There would not be photosynthesis happening without the light that turns all plants and vegetation green, the chlorophyll rich source for us to take in, breathe and thrive everyday. Do we really see the signs that show us playfully, deep understandings of how connected we all are. Most of us are looking forward to Spring which is just around the corner. Well, we don’t really know when it’s coming exactly as the whole planet is changing with global warming. After all, in tuning into what we’re going through recently faster than ever, it all seems like the Universe creates many new awakening circumstances in the world for us to think, act and be compelled to radically change our consciousness.

One evening when driving to see our friends, we got stuck in heavy traffic in the middle of the city Hear Markéta speak at the Tree of Life Festival on centre. I suddenly realized how much I’m pulled into Sat 12 April 2014 (see page 19 & back cover).

Love from Heaven BY LORNA BYRNE

and you have the choice to release it. You can choose to allow yourself to feel it. Doing so will help you to stop destroying yourself and others. It will make your life happier and more fulfilled. If you can love yourself more, you will be able to love others more and you will be more truly yourself.

Sunday Times #1 bestselling author Lorna Byrne has been seeing angels since she was a baby. She speaks at sell out events throughout the world. This is an extract from her new book ‘Love from Heaven’ We are all pure love. But most of us have locked away this love within ourselves and don’t let it out. This love remains there, though. We can lock love away but we cannot destroy it, and we always have the potential to release it. We release it by learning to love ourselves again first. If we are unable to love ourselves, we are unable to love another. Love is the most powerful force in the world; it comes from heaven, from our soul. It’s love that brings all the joy and happiness into our lives; it’s love that helps to steer us in the right direction and drives us forward, regardless of what is going on in our lives; it’s love that makes living worthwhile. Ever since I was a young child, the angels have been teaching me about love and helping me to see the force of love physically. I see angels all the time. I cannot remember any time when I have not seen them. From the very moment I opened my eyes after I was born they were there – even though I did not know they were angels. I still see them as clearly as I see my daughter sitting across the dinner table from me. There has never been a day when I haven’t seen angels. I also see the force of love physically, but this is the first time I have written about it.

Your guardian angel can help you to become more aware of the love you have shut away. Your guardian angel loves you unconditionally. It never judges you, and sees you as perfect in every way. Ask it to help you to see yourself the way it sees you. Ask it to keep reminding you particularly when you start to judge or find fault with yourself. So many of us are good at thinking negative thoughts about ourselves, and think few loving thoughts. If anyone has ever told you that you shouldn’t love or value yourself, you should discard this thought and throw it away. When we think loving thoughts about ourselves, we release more love that showers us and makes us more happy and confident; when we think negative or critical thoughts, we do exactly the opposite. I remember a girl who came to see me many years ago. She was very unhappy and didn’t love herself at all. She told me that she felt ugly and hated her appearance. Her guardian angel stood beside her and just said to me, ‘Tell her what you see, Lorna.’ I did; I told her what beautiful eyes she had, and what a beautiful smile. I told her how pretty she was – and she was. I knew, though, that she was having great difficulty in believing me. Her guardian angel told me to ask her whether she liked flowers. She told me she loved them, and that daffodils were her favourite. Her guardian angel then told me to tell her that she should look at herself in the same way as she looked at a daffodil. I did as I was told.

All new born babies are pure love. They feel complete love for themselves and know they are perfect, lovable and unique. Yet from the first months of a baby’s life I see this glow of love fade, and from the age of ten most people - and I mean more than nine out of ten - have locked away a significant proportion of their love from themselves and others.

About a year later she came to see me and I could instantly see that she had changed. I could see the force of love wafting from her, and turning and coming back, gently showering her with the love that was coming from within. She was much more happy and confident in herself. She told me that each time she thought of her looks in a negative way she would think of the beauty and perfection of a daffodil. She told me that she had put a picture of a daffodil in the corner of her mirror to help her remember. She was so grateful, saying that she didn’t think she would be still here without me. I told her it wasn’t me – it was that she had listened to her guardian angel and had taken the steps she needed to learn to love herself again.

God does not allow us to destroy, lose or diminish love. But we can lock much of it away, as if we have put it in a cage and thrown away the key. This love never disappears, though

The angels have told me that we can all learn to love ourselves more and if we do so there will be more love in our world. This is why I have written this book.

Love from Heaven An evening with Lorna Byrne ‘Love is the most powerful force in the world. It’s love that brings all the joy and happiness into our lives and drives us forward. The angels have told me it’s love that makes living worthwhile.’ Lorna Byrne Lorna Byrne has been seeing angels since she was a baby. Very unusually, she sees angels physically with as much clarity as the rest of us see people and she sees them every day. This diminutive, softspoken, uneducated Irish woman who did not talk about what she was seeing until seven years ago, says she has no idea why God has allowed her to see angels when others can’t, adding that she is just an ordinary person. The response of her more than a million readers all around the world (Her books Angels in my Hair, Stairways to Heaven and A Message of Hope from the Angels are published in more than 50 countries and translated into 27 languages) is that knowing that Lorna sees a guardian angel with everyone – of all faiths and none – has given them confidence that they have a guardian angel. Lorna doesn’t just see angels. She also sees love as a physical force, something which she has never talked about before the publication of Love From Heaven. This allows her a unique insight into the importance of love, its origin and the different ways we can love. She explains how we are all pure love, but so many of us have locked away this love within ourselves and are unable to fully love ourselves or others. Love From Heaven will transform the way you think about love; it will stir up the love that is within you, helping you to love yourself more, making you more compassionate, happier and helping to change your life and the lives of the people around you. Her message is one of love - join us for this special evening with Lorna. The format of the evening is interview style with a local journalist interviewing Lorna. There will be an opportunity to ask Lorna questions from the audience. And Lorna will individually bless anyone who wishes it afterwards.

Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much. - Erich Fromm


God and Money BY MOIRA BUSH

cash flow, if anything starting a new project, we all know it would need more cash. Also, I am not that kind of healer, I don’t do touchy-feely therapy work, preferring to work energetically with clients. This simply did not make sense.

Colour Mirrors Teacher & Spiritual Entrepreneur. Her talks and courses inspire you to step up and be the difference, be on purpose and serve from the heart. At the age when fighting the grey hairs has become routine, I came to the realisation that I know absolutely nothing about money. Operating a business for 10 years in overdraft and £30 000 of credit card debt by 2009, I was in serious denial. No surprise though, given that the only financial observations I had from my parents was mother struggling to feed her family, always in poverty. Mom was religious, she read her bible every night and prayed for the miracle of financial freedom that never came. Even though I had years of exposure to metaphysical subjects, exploring the teachings that included the Law of Attraction and The Secret, I was still stuck and unable to change my finances around so that I did not repeat my parent’s patterns around money. Something was missing and I had no idea what it was.

I had however made a commitment to the archangels that whatever I am instructed or guided on to change my finances, I would say yes. Staying in faith and trusting the process the most bizarre futuristic healing system arrived through my body on the planet to help humanity download a new spiritual blueprint. This new system also had two very specific spheres; one is called the Health Sphere and the other the Wealth Sphere. Slowly it dawned on me that not just myself, but everyone I would share this energy system with, will have the opportunity to not only heal their physical selves and raise spiritual awareness – we will all get to learn about wealth creation through the Wealth Sphere! Within months I was out of overdraft and never returned. And as I became more aware of my poverty mind-set habits, I felt guided to bring together a programme that would focus on sharing the abundance education the Archangels were giving me, and a 2-day programme called God and Money was launched through the Spiritual Entrepreneurs Academy. God and Money is a spiritual boot camp and one of the toughest I have presented, simply because all the experiences of several years working with the light and the shadow are compacted into 2 days learning followed by monthly support group meetings. The Wealth Sphere also teaches us that abundance is not just about financial stability, it is also about being in joy and in love, the three elements that makes up the Wheel of Fortune. Study your poverty mind-set, embrace prosperity consciousness and set your wheel in motion so you too may create a financial foundation to help you get your message of love and joy out into the world.

Help arrived when I made a statement in a colour therapy bath to the Archangel Metatron, ‘I am tired of being poor’. And I meant it. I also gave permission for the Archangels to show me what I needed to study or practice to change my finances. Insights arrived about vows of poverty Hear Moira speak about ‘Spiritual made in other lifetimes; judgements around Entrepreneurs’ at the Tree of Life Festival being spiritual and being paid for healing on Saturday 12 April 2014 (see p19 & services; and judgements on those in authority backcover) who abuses financial power. As I worked through these issues using colour therapy, I started to feel hopeful A new methodology of healing again. Although I felt better, no more money Round spheres containing Sacred was coming in. So again Geometric shapes and Colours, travel I asked, ‘Metatron, what through light rays and deliver healing and else can I be doing, transformation for the body, mind, heart and soul. show me please?’ During December 2012 he instructed me very clearly with visions to establish a new healing system. Now that was funny. Not the answer one would expect when looking at increasing

GOD AND MONEY An evening talk with Moira Bush The relationship between our spiritual self that wants to serve humanity and the part of us that handles our money and ensures we survive, is out of balance. How do we live and work doing what we love and at the same time earn the income that is needed to meet all our bills? What if we desire more than ‘just’ enough’ to pay the bills? How can we shift from constantly creating poverty and living in debt, to creating financial freedom? Moira has been running her business in overdraft for 10 years, at one point, £30 000 in debt with credit cards. During this talk Moira will share some of the steps she took using spiritual principles to let go of a poverty mind-set and claim our God-given gift - prosperity consciousness. Friday 7 March 2014, 7.30pm – 9.30pm (doors open 7pm) Tickets: £10 Early Bird if booked by 28 February (£15 thereafter) Venue: Birmingham (see website)

GOD AND MONEY 2-day Spiritual Boot Camp with Moira Bush There are 8 specific steps that we explore to identify and release poverty mind-set patterns. Of these, 4 steps are related to issues around the past. The other 4 steps focus on our shadow side and include exploring the energies of the wounded child and victimhood. On this course we access aspects of ourselves that specifically deny us experiencing the abundance that has been promised to us by the Angels. This programme is intense and from experience we know your shadow aspect that needs you to stay in poverty and struggle, may try to sabotage you from even arriving on the course. Be alert and keep breathing white light into the fear, it is just the last bit of resistance. Because the poverty mind-set is deeply embedded in our cellular memory, monthly support group meetings are held as part of the programme. The meetings help to raise self-awareness and build on your new abilities to only create from prosperity consciousness. Fee £180 - Includes Manual and Certificate from the Spiritual Entrepreneurs Academy Times 9:00 registration, 9:30 start. End at 17:00 Date: Sat 15 & Sun 16 March 2014 Venue: Birmingham (see website)

Kaitlyn G. Lyndon Gain clarity, insight, clear and release ‘stuck’ energies I connect to the energy consciousness of who and what we truly are to help others do the same. This energy connection helps people come more into alignment with their true authentic self/ soul energy. It can present in a number of ways, including the Angelic realms. Each session is totally unique, using a combination of energy guidance, colour, meditation, hypnotherapy and Silver Spheres energy healing system, depending on what I am guided to work with. The more in alignment we are, the greater the potential for miracles in our lives (K.G.L). Ultimately, I work with the Universal collective love energy consciousness of who and what we truly are, so all of my work is heart centred and directed by that energy. My work helps people with a broad range of issues to become more in alignment with their true authentic selves. If you are feeling `stuck` in any area of your life, I maybe able to help.

Everywhere, while going shopping, attending a V-cycle class, singing ‘The Story of My Life’ or watching a squirrel spinning around in the garden: ‘The secret of attraction is loving yourself!’ And loving yourself means loving every single (even wobbly) bit of the self in the mirror and in the reflection of the others - ouch! In fact it’s yummy when we come to a point where it all emerges into one beautiful transcendent experience. Sweet sleep is wonderful until Awakening comes and opens your eyes wide and kisses you eternally. God has no meaning in a mean, self-centred, story-oriented world. Where is meditation there is compassion. Where is compassion there is love. Where is love there is inspired life. Where is inspired life there is awakening. Where is awakening there is a soulful purposeful living merging into oneness.

“Overcome your limits to love & live passionately and reveal your purposeful life through a gentle authentic awakening.” The Simple Spiritual Trinity Awareness assignments covered on the weekend: • Deep & divine diving in and within Silent and Active Meditations • Gentle Yoga practice to improve movement and memory functions • Who would you be now in the presence? • Welcome your calling wounds to love them into strengths • Delightful plant based nourishment for longevity and vitality • Conversations on richer relationships • You as a Sacred & Nurturing De-cluttered Temple
