When Zig becomes Zag

    By the time you read this, I will be gone. Gone where? No, not from this Planet, although maybe just for a bit. Don’t panic. I’m not committing suicide. But I’ll be gone on a journey into another dimension…and I will return. But I guess like any journey, we’re never the same at the end as we are at the beginning. If this is sounding a bit too esoteric for you, let me explain. One of the principles I live my life by is “Zig Zag”. My beautiful mentor has instilled into me the importance of living life as a zig zag, not as a straight line. When we head in a straight line, we’re way too predictable....

Lessons from The Great Sea of Life

It has often occured to me that the events of our lives are similar to the changing of the tide, or the shifting of the wind.We can view difficult times as mistakes or miscalculations. Or we can accept that they are simply the course of our days, the pattern of our years and the flow of the life that was given to us...Today's affirmations come from the charming memoirs of sailor Richard Bode from his book: 'First You Have to Row a Little Boat'. Written by a grown man looking back on his childhood, his book reflects on what learning to sail taught him about life, ie. making choices, adapting to change, and becoming his own person. Are you ready to discover which statement has chosen...

If I could save Thyme in a bottle

I’ve always loved using my intuition to guide me to the right oil or oil blend for any situation. After more than 23 years of working with the Young Living essential oils, I have a great knowledge of the actions of these essential oils, and of which oils work with which parts of our body. Yet it’s when I use my intuition that the magic happens. That’s when I discover new uses for essential oils – ones I’d never thought to use in a particular situation, or combinations I’d never imagined would work well together. I’ve often felt that many of these insights are indeed ancient knowings about herbs and oils from lives gone by, which are re-emerging into my...

The Pointing of the Bone

  In our last 2 blogs, Journey into the Dreaming, and When Feather Foot comes calling, I’ve explored the Australian Aboriginal shamans and their ability to focus the power of their mind to harm and to heal those around them. Our mind is immensely powerful, and it certainly has the capacity to make our body sick. Yet in many ways this is an oversimplification. It’s missing one vital part of the picture. It’s not just our mind or words that poison our body, it’s the energy behind them. In fact, it’s the energy behind these thoughts that is the REAL weapon. That’s the weapon the Kurdaitcha wield. In fact, they are masters in this Art. It’s also the weapon behind...

When Feather Foot Comes Calling

  In the Indigenous Australian culture (ie. the Aboriginal culture), just as in most indigenous cultures, there exist powerful medicine men and women who are the healers and the spiritual “law enforcers” of the community. These Spiritual Masters are commonly referred to as Shamans, however the different tribes also have their own names for these people. For example, the Western Desert shaman or “Clever Man” is known as Mapantjara (or Mapan for short). He is said to not only be able to cure illness through his mystical powers and his great knowledge of magic, he also can direct his powers to cause sickness and death. The same is true for the Kurdaitcha, the Shamans of the Arrernte people of Central...
