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 …

Vibrational Support – Crystals

So many of us love crystals, we are drawn to them for their beauty, but how do they support us beyond being aesthetically pleasing? Crystals are often millennia old, having been formed via the slow cooling of liquid rock (magma) in Earth’s formative years . As a result, crystals are one of the most harmoniously structured materials in nature, because they have the lowest amount of structural disorder (entropy). For this reason crystals are widely used in watches and electronic devices, as the crystal lattice structure provides stability and regularity of flow of electromagnetic energy moving through it. The consistent lattice structure of crystals also mean that the vibrational frequencies they emit are very stable/consistent and any dissonant (inharmonious) energy interacting with these vibrational frequencies are transformed back in to harmonious vibrations. Different crystals emit different vibrational frequencies, each of which is inherently harmonious and balanced. We can therefore think of Crystals as a sort of library of vibrational records which can assist our own multi-layered human bodies (crystalline bodies) to come back into vibrational balance. What do we mean by crystalline bodies? “The human body, …

Friendship

Friend comes from the old English word “freond” meaning *to love*. Similarly the German word “Freundin”, the Dutch word “Vriend”, the French word “Ami”, the Spanish word “Amigo” and Italian word “Amico”, all mean *to love*, so that little word “friend” is synonymous with love. We often think of our relationship with others when we think of *friendship* (I know we do) but can forget that the most intimate relationship we are in is with ourselves. It’s so easy to have one rule for how we treat our friends/loved ones and another for how we treat ourselves. How often do we treat ourselves in ways we would never dream of treating someone we love? Maybe we can re-frame/re-label that concept of “I/me” as *my best friend*, shifting our perspective of ourselves towards that of someone to love, someone deserving of love just as we would our dearest of friends? “You are reminded to treat yourself with compassion, kindness, love and respect, as you would your dearest of friends. You are supported to be mindful of how you speak of and to …
