Being AdaptableI was walking off stage after busting out some reluctant Karaoke…

It was a Robbie Williams Kylie Minogue duet I was singing with a girl I had just met while flicking through the song lists. 

My male friend who had been watching from the back of the room shook his head as I approached.

“Damn I hate you. You are good at everything you do,” he said.

You What Now!? (I was expecting a high-five).

Although he had said it with a half-smile, I could tell it was more than a passing comment. It was obviously something he had given previous consideration, and I quickly figured a large part of him was hoping that I had failed at my karaoke attempt.

It took me some time to realize the meaning behind his words… 

Life JourneyAs a child I use to read a series of choose your own adventure books. For those that aren’t familiar with them, basically it was a children’s story that allowed the reader to choose what the character experienced.

Similar to life, in the book, you could make choices based on free will.

There were usually three different endings in these books. Some of the consequences the character in the book experienced could be considered good, bad and ugly. It was a novel idea; as just in life, we are all living our own choose your own adventure story.

MindfulnessIn today’s post, I am asking you to consider the absence of stimulus.

The reason being is that I am attempting to live without television for one month.

Why? Because they were digging a new drain several blocks from my house, the cable got cut, and the suburb was without TV for about 24 hours.

Now, my place is quite small – so I usually have the TV on a music channel for background noise. But when I picked up the remote and clicked the button, it was an eerie feeling to see a blue screen with the ‘No Signal’ message.

It was like an old friend didn’t like me anymore.

Destiny or FateIs our Destiny pre-planned or do we have choice?

Human destiny is an interesting topic to explore, as many people in their lives will wonder what the future has in store for them.

Generally there are two schools of thought on this subject.

One belief is that we create our own destiny with our thoughts, words and actions, moment by moment, each day.

The other school of thought is that our destiny is already pre-planned; we created it before we were born.

Develop your Spiritual PowerMay The Force Be With You!

Whether you love or hate Star Wars, it is fair to say that it has greatly influenced pop-culture and the society of today.

Me? I like it. I’m not fanatical, don’t get dressed up, play with figurines or hang out in chat rooms. I’ve just a really fond memory of going to the cinema as a small child to see the first Star Wars on the big screen.

At the time, everything about it was Amazing! And not just the Visual FX of the light saber or those X-Wing fighters trying to blow up the Death-Star.

What grabbed my attention most was the fight between Good and Evil. The white energy of Luke Skywalker or the Dark energy of Darth Vader…

And the fact that there was an entity called THE FORCE.

Spiritual GrowthMountains are symbolic in life of overcoming one’s challenges – and rising to the top and succeeding.

We all have different challenges in life to overcome that we have chosen from a spiritual level. As we overcome a challenge, we don’t have to address it again, and we can move onto bigger and better things.

This is also the nature of ascension.

Like a mountain, the journey becomes steeper and more challenging the higher you climb; but the rewards are also greater.

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!

Spiritual PathWas there a point in your life where you made the conscious decision to be more spiritual, or were you wandering aimlessly, only to look up and realize that you were on a spiritual path?

Me? I just took one step at a time and ended up right where I am now. There was no singular life-changing awakening or majestic realization heralded by Angels.

ReincarnationWhen writing of spiritual development, it helps to find simple analogies to give perspective to deeper esoteric principals. With that in mind, I ask you to please consider the humble light bulb.

In essence there are two forms working together.

The physical structure that gives it a real-world presence and the energetic component of light.

An outer shell – and an inner life force. Sound familiar?

Exercises for your BrainThe brain is the organ in our body which allows us to think and interact with the environment; through perception and cognition.

Our brain constantly builds neurons while learning from the new challenges we face each day.

Just like the physical body, our brain also needs to be exercised, if it is to perform at its best.

It is very important to perform tasks that challenge your brain. This helps in building intellect, co-ordination, physical agility, enhanced memory and advanced cognitive behaviors.

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.

MeditationJust the other day I got in a Fight!

I was out near my Worm Farm, transplanting a few cherry tomato seedlings when it all began.

I had a bag of potting mix between my knees, both hands full of dirt and BAMMO!

One of the neighbor’s bees lined me up and took me down with one hit (but not before I squealed hysterically, ran in circles and threw dirt everywhere).

I was stung on the top of my cheek, just below my right eye. I was home alone and a little worried about the effects, as I had been stung on my foot a few years previous and my whole leg swelled. Luckily, this time, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation saved a disaster. My face did swell a little – but only enough to cut some vision and make me look a little chubby. But the worst thing of all – It hurt when I smiled.

ReincarnateWhen we reach the end of our life it is said that we get to review our life. For me this rings true.

Our spirit guides are there with us and we review our life, from start to finish, kind of like on a big cinema screen.

We see and feel how we have influenced others in positive and negative ways throughout our lives and we see the lessons we learnt or didn’t learn.

We see things from a higher perspective, how spirit views things.

Making ChoicesIn this post I would like to talk to you about choice.

One of the greatest gifts we have been given is the gift to make choices about everything in every moment.

What will I eat?  When will I go to sleep? When will I wake up? What will I do today? What will I think today? How will I react today?

We make choices constantly all day long which create and affect our life today and also create and affect our future moments.

The series of choices we make today affect our future, not some predestined writings.

learning lifes lessonsHeaven and Hell; they both live within us.

This may be a challenging thought but I really believe we create our heaven or our hell based on our perception.

We will all have difficult times to face on our journey.

I believe the trick is not to dwell there any longer than we have to. We need to just stay in the light with our thoughts and try to move forward.

The problem often is that people look for success in the wrong places and then get disgruntled when they don’t find what they are looking for.

During the hard or painful times in my life, were the times where I learnt the most about myself and what I needed to change to move forward.

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.

Your Beliefs and BehaviorI saw this quote and it really made me think…

“Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does.”

So your beliefs do not define who you are – your actions do.

But how often do we hold up our beliefs or hide behind them?

Our beliefs are really just meant to be a heading on who we are and how we act.

What is the point of having beliefs if they don’t manifest in our day to day lives and define who we are?

Body Mind Spirit HealingA guest post by Brad Austen.

We are multidimensional beings and it is commonly known we comprise of three parts; a mind, body and spirit.

It is also known that energetically we have a physical body, an emotional body, a mental body and a spiritual body.

The human body is made of light that has slowed to a point that it has become dense matter. Part of the journey humanity is on at this time, is to ascend and grow spiritually. Everyone needs healing on some level. For those on the path, the physical body is beginning to change and become less dense.

The energy in our auras is also changing and beginning to vibrate quicker. Our cells are changing to hold more light, so we can hold more of our spirit in human form.  This is a gradual process that occurs over many years.
