Munay-Ki RitesI’m a nature lover. For me it’s the canvas on which Mother Earth expresses her beauty – and to connect with that natural energy both purifies and energizes me. It’s my happy place. When connected to nature – I am free to be my spiritual-self.

So whenever I hear of the opportunity to deepen my spiritual connection with the divine, feminine, nurturing energy she provides my ears prick up and my interest is held captive.

Healing with CrystalsCrystal Healing is a very ancient form of therapy and at this moment it is experiencing a new enthusiasm.

Crystal Healing uses the innate and natural ability of Crystals to induce healing, by focusing and balancing our bodies, amplifying our minds and thoughts, and raising our vibration.

I know what some of you may be thinking… Seriously, does Crystal Healing work???

Yes, yes, and YES, it definitely does!

Path to EnlightenmentThe path to enlightenment is often called a path because it is a journey through time and space … You don’t simply wake up one day enlightened.

It takes time and dedication to the spiritual path over many years and lifetimes. Everyone is at different stages of enlightenment on the planet. Some are more advanced in areas and some are still in infancy in areas.

Life on earth supports enlightenment through the challenges, tests and trials we are faced with throughout our life.

Spirits on EarthI would like to talk to you about earthbound spirits and why they are different to spirits that cross over. Fortunately there are not as many as most people think as the majority of spirits do cross over.

I think it is a shame that in most cultures there are misconceptions and fear surrounding death. Sadly, most people are not comfortable discussing this subject. I have found that although all spirits are given the choice of crossing over some decide not to.

Meditation Spirit of GaiaThe Spirit of Gaia is the sacred consciousness of the planet, also referred to in some indigenous cultures as Mother Earth.

It is a belief that there is spirit in everything; in each blade of grass, in each petal of a flower…

There is energy and consciousness in each drop of water and each grain of sand.

Gaia is evolving as humanity is evolving. It is an interlinked partnership. As humanity shifts to a higher vibration and changes, so does the planet.

There is a lot of physical earth movement and changes occurring at the moment, as Gaia is shifting and aligning her energy to hold and support this higher vibration.

Living With AbundanceI would like to share with you my thoughts on gratitude and how powerful this can be in your life.

Gratitude is a key factor in attracting abundance and happiness into your life.

When we come from a place of sincere gratitude our energy is one of acceptance and harmony.

This energy attracts positive additional energies to us.

Mates with SoulI am often asked by people, “Will I meet my soul mate?” … and my answer to that is, “You already have”.

So many people spend their life craving the perfect romantic partner to suit the ideal their ego has made for them when in reality; I believe we have many soul mates or soul connections, as I prefer to call them.

I believe we come here with lessons that we need to learn and there are many souls that have agreed to be part of our life here to help us with those lessons.

Energy VibrationIf we strip everything back to the basics, everything is energy. Everyone has a unique energy vibration that is constantly changing with our mood and the food we eat. What is quite interesting is that we actually eat food on a subconscious level that matches our vibration at the time.

EmpathyA guest post by Karen Ellyard.
It has been a sad time for me with the passing of our beloved dog, Charley.

It is times like this when being an Empath is really difficult and I have really struggled with this gift (or at times I think not a gift).

When Empaths have a connection we feel what the other soul is feeling. As Charley became ill I could feel her deteriorating which was far from pleasant.

At this time I want to honor our beloved Charley who brought us many years of absolute joy and all of you Empaths out there that struggle with balancing the emotions and feelings they absorb.

Becoming CrystallineHumanity is gradually becoming crystalline, or more crystal-like in vibration.

This is a process that is gradual and happens over many years. Those at the forefront of spiritual evolution are leading the way to hold a higher vibration in human form.

One of the easiest ways to become more crystalline is to wear and work with crystals.

Ask to make a connection with your body elemental to assist in healing your physical body.

Your body elemental is the consciousness of your body and is always trying to maintain balance. It communicates with you through feeling and intuition. Often we say, “I have a gut feeling”.

This is your body elemental trying to communicate with you.

NumerologyI get the relationship between astrology and astronomy.

As the planets move to different positions they affect our energy and behavior. (It’s so easy to see with the tides and the phase of the moon)(And the moods of my ex-girlfriend! ha).
But when numerology was first explained to me I thought the people that believed it were gullible and desperate for insight.

To define it, Numerology is the method of creating a relationship between numbers and living things.

I.e. Each letter of the alphabet has been given a numeric value. A=1, B=2, etc. If you write your name down and allocate the values to each letter, you can add up those values in different ways to tell you divined secrets about your personality and destiny.

Meditation in MountainsI recently had the opportunity to ‘get away’. Some people think I’m crazy when I tell them, but yes, I went camping by myself.

No I didn’t get bored, I wasn’t scared and I wasn’t worried about the many things that could have gone wrong. It was 4 days and three nights of bliss.

I love my computer and the many wonderful things it can do, but no achievement by man has come close to the efforts of Mother Nature. She combines a million factors in balance and no where is the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth more apparent.

For some of you the perfect holiday may be sitting beside a pool on a deck chair ordering a few fancy drinks. And don’t get me wrong – that would be lovely too, but let me tell you quickly about the Bunya Mountains.

Power of Saying NoI’m not sure when you will be reading this, but I’m writing it not long after the start of a new calendar year. No this isn’t a post about the importance of setting New Year resolutions – I’ve never really gone for that.

I like to think that I have the ability to make important decisions for my well-being at any time of the year!

The reason this has come up for me now is that I went camping over New Years and really got back to basics. As I strolled knee deep in the crystal clear waters of Station Creek, with is golden sandy bottom and a gentle ocean tide making it perfect to lay back and float down, I re-realized how much I enjoy getting away from it all.

The computer, work, deadlines, expectations, commitments, the phone, the TV … all of it. It’s not that any of those things are bad by themselves, but for me, when they are a constant pressure for too long I get blinded from my life’s true joys.

So the solution would appear to be easy – Take more holidays and find my happy place.

But there is one major hurdle. I’m too busy.

Clearing Subtle BodyMeditation is the basic practice to attain balance within our physical, mental and emotional bodies.

Meditation enables us to live with greater happiness in today’s stressful atmosphere.

Keeping yourself in balance should be a priority, but it can be a very tough task without Meditation.

Meditation provides the opportunity for everyone to receive joy and happiness in all aspects of their lives.

Creating new Neural PathwaysWherever you are in the world, and at whatever time and day you are reading this…
I welcome you to Backwards Week!

Your next 7 days can be transformational if you wish.

If you accept the challenge below, (it’s easy and fun), you will be testing yourself and only you will be holding yourself accountable.

There is no pass or fail, but merely the opportunity to take a short journey of exploration into yourself.

Being PresentI often hear people say, “If only I had time to do what I need to do to grow spiritually.”

I have come to understand that people tend to compartmentalize who they are by ‘where they are and what they are doing’.

Who hasn’t tried to improve themselves by saying, “I will try to put aside some time every day to be present.”

Having been thinking on this I think, ‘Wow! What a way to load more pressure on yourself in a life that is often too busy – where time just seems to move faster and faster.’

I really believe that walking with spirit is the essence of who we are and not meant to be turned on at times.

How to Automatic WritingI’ve always enjoyed writing. It’s one way in which I can express myself creatively.

I like to capture the essence of a thought or concept and get it on the page so that others have the opportunity to see its beauty.

It’s a thrill to have a blank piece of paper in front of me and an hour to spare!

I’ve written poetry, stories, commercials, film scripts, sales copy and blog articles. They are all very different beasts – even though they are all crafted from the same 26 letters and a few bits of punctuation.

Something I’ve never had to deal with is writers block. (I actually have trouble getting the words down fast enough!) I would feel myself enter a creative zone – and the rest of the world would fall away. It was just me and the page … Or so I thought…

Life LessonsYou may have heard the saying that ‘life is a game’ – and come to realize that everyone plays a different role in the drama of life.

While we are in the game, it feels very real and sometimes hard to detach ourselves from it emotionally.

Throughout our sojourns as a spirit pretending to be human, we experience many roles. We do this to expand our awareness and experience as a spirit and to evolve.

Meditation can be a great tool to learn to silence one’s mind to hear the soft whispers of spirit. Spirit is always there to help guide us in our life, but it is often subtle and easy to ignore.

Learning from ChildrenHaving just had some time looking after my grandchildren I am again humbled by how pure and innocent they are and how much they teach me if I stop to listen.

I have three grandchildren under 5 and have just had them to look after for the week.

They remind me to be present, not just be present but delight in the present of every moment of every day.

They teach me joy as I look into their delighted faces, delighted over the seemingly small things which are so important if we stop to look.

Children see magic in everything because they look for it.

KarmaA guest post by Karen Ellyard.

I would like to share this story with you – Author unknown.

One day a man saw an old lady stranded on the side of the road. Even in the fading light of the day, he could see she needed help. He pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.

Even with a smile on his face, she was worried as he approached. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry.

He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you.

He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.”
