Understanding is Power

Sometimes, the world revealed to us through the filter of main stream media can appear to be filled with nothing but tragedy, pain and heartache. Under persistent bombardment of these vibrations it can be easy to ask yourself “what’s the point?….what’s the point of even trying to change things when all the odds seem so hugely stacked against us?“. If you’ve felt or are feeling this way then you’re not alone and moments of despair and hopelessness are very much a part of the human condition, BUT if you find yourself feeling this way, it’s worth considering this: what is reported on main stream media is not a true reflection of all that is happening in our world.  Knowledge is power and understanding how dramatic (particularly negative) events wield the power to ensnare our brains is something that we personally feel we should all be aware of. There’s a reason that tragedy and negative news sells papers, because to a large extent evolution has wired our brains to pay more attention to dramatic, often negative news than the alternative …

Soul food with Adele from Vegiehead 

Anna: I woke up this morning and made homemade muesli for myself and what’s more, I thoroughly enjoyed the process! Anyone that knows me knows that isn’t something I’d normally do and yet here I found myself making this nutritious food for myself and it put a spring in my step, so what has happened!?!? LJ: Earlier this week, as a birthday gift to myself, we had an amazing three hours with the gorgeous soul that is Vegiehead Adele. Not only is Adele an accomplished cook, teacher and business woman but she’s also incredibly intuitive, warm, humble and inspiring. For us, the ‘kitchen and pantry overhaul‘ experience was not only about learning to cook nutritious plant based meals but a much deeper internal shift. The process: Adele literally just opened the pantry, asked us what we usually eat or if there was anything that we hadn’t used or knew what to do with (hello cans of organic Adzuki beans sitting there forever and random bag of dry cannellini beans) and showed us step by step how to whip …

Reflecting on my Year of 35

Yesterday I turned 36! We refer to birthdays as ‘Upgrades’ in our house (my awesome brother in law Menno’s idea) so it’s my 3.6 upgrade and I really love how that feels and sounds! My year of 35 has been full of growth, change and lessons in letting go of old beliefs I had about myself, my life and my relationships and in turn embracing a new way of life and being blessed with new friendships and connections with like minded souls. 2016 was our first full year of living at our new property ‘Mayberry‘ in the Macedon Ranges, which we are setting up as a permaculture/eco property. So, much of the past year has been about reconnecting to Mother Nature and I realise now that it is perhaps the first time I have properly felt connected to her.   My word for 2016 was ‘Shine’ and to embrace that vibration I made the decision last year to finally stop hiding and dulling my light in order to remain invisible. It was time for me to …

When you heal, we all feel it!

Are you finding that your usual ‘go to’ list of self care/self soothing things just isn’t cutting it? Perhaps you’re experiencing health issues (either new or old) bubbling up or childhood wounds and issues from the past are being triggered? If you’ve been experiencing some pretty dense heavy energy of late or any/all of the above, then please know that you aren’t alone! There are a couple of things that we have been feeling into that have been working in tandem creating a sort of *double whammy* energy effect on many of us. Firstly, the dense energy that many of us are feeling is the fear, uncertainty, hatred and negativity which has been dislodged from the riverbed of the collective consciousness and is now floating on the surface in full glaring view. This dredge (that was conveniently settled on the bottom of the riverbed out of view for many years before) has risen to the surface in every area of human life and, as a result, can no longer be ignored which, despite being a good thing in our view …
