2015 Year of Gathering

2015 Year of Gathering

Intro – My story / pop Astrology / Astrology for Healing/Growth 

I found Astrology to be a guiding light at a time in my life when many things were topsy turvy. Astrology helped me recognise that I was  in the midst of my first Saturn Return (28 to 30 years of age) AND there was light at the end of the tunnel PLUS a purpose for the ‘crazy’ situations I found myself in.

I wanted a deeper understanding of the mysteries of life and my role in the whole picture – Astrology seemed to help bring clarity and common sense into the various struggles I found myself in. Although the ‘pop’ Astrology of magazines and newspapers were often a bit of fun – I sensed there was much more to this ancient craft/wisdom/language. Pop Astrology does have its basis in the positions & relationships of the planets to each other AND to the general energy of our Sun Sign – MOST people know what their Sun Sign is (the part of the Zodiac the Sun was in on the day we were born). YET if we want to work more constructively with ASTROLOGY we need to have a more refined tool = the Birth Chart. Read the rest of this entry »

The intention & experience (for many) is to harmonise within so that the body can return to optimum health & well-being. This gentle nurturing therapy is one simple way to access deeper states of relaxation & healing.

The client relaxes in a comfortable position & continues to relax deeper & deeper as the harmonic chimes are activated & placed around the body. As the chimes continue to be played intuitively by the practitioner; the body is bathed in a warm cocoon of sound resonance/vibration which assists the client to enjoy subtle shifts & releases of energy blockages. The physical & light bodies are re-aligned with the Universal Resonance, while the brain waves slow down to give deeper states of relaxation as everyday problems/worry/anxiety are left behind.

Many of my regular  Therapeutic Health  Massage clients are now enjoying an extra half-hour of Harmonic Healing on top of their massage. Most have enjoyed the extra healing dimension immensely. Others are finding that just one half-hour Energy Balance/Harmonic Healing brings delicious respite from stress = be it ill-health, over-worked or while facing major life challenges. When performed in a quiet supportive environment this simple, enjoyable & delightful natural healing method works very quickly to bring about deep feelings of relaxation & well-being.

April 2014 Guidance in the Stars

April 2014 Guidance in the Stars

As April 2014 approaches – this can be an excellent time to prepare ourselves for the impact of all the challenging energies ahead. Astrological information abounds about just what we can look forward to …I will be using links to give you speedy access to the best data available at this time of writing BUT am sure lots of other wonderful guidance will be available in the coming weeks.

Earlier this year I noticed a rare Astrological Event destined to happen on 29.4.14 called Annular Eclipse Anon-C = a rare Annular eclipse where the central line does not touch the Earths surface. Watch out for that one!

Earlier in April – 15.4.14 we have a Total Lunar Eclipse which will be experienced mostly across North & South America Here is one link on this energy & others. And another link where the information covers a lot of 2014 and seems most helpful.

Other suggested sights (LINKS 1,2 & 3) have been recommended to my current Astrology Students as being places to gain more insight into the coming events. I encourage you to get into a bit of personal research – NOW could be the perfect time to follow-up on an interest in some personal healing therapy?

FEAR=False Evidence Appearing Real

FEAR=False Evidence Appearing Real

The idea both frightened & fascinated me – it was 1988 when I first heard about it – I was speaking to someone who had done it easily & effortlessly. It was something I had to do! But, I had sat by a campfire many times & felt the heat…I had burnt my hands taking a cake or casserole out of the oven – I was not sure – to walk on FIRE – could it be done? It was August 1988. I was amongst a group of people who were warm, friendly, loving & aware of their potential on this planet. I felt great appreciation for their gentle but firm belief in themselves – I knew I would need to have the same belief in myself to accomplish this fearful task. Read the rest of this entry »

Sunrise over Pacific Ocean - Palm Beach QLD

Sunrise over Pacific Ocean – Palm Beach QLD

On Easter Saturday  morning while sitting with the sunrise over Palm Beach QLD, it occurred to me that somewhere on Earth, at every moment there was a sunrise. And at the exact same time, a sunset also. Just because I am fixed into one place and fail to encounter the perpetual sunrise, doesn’t negate its’ existence.

This thought led me to acknowledge how it is in the ‘random-ness’ of our 24hour gap before next sunrise (which we encounter in other parts of the world by travel) that we celebrate uniqueness and project a specialness onto this daily event.

I remember sitting with a delightful sunrise over the Swan River in Perth WA February 2008. And another special sunrise over Darwin NT October 2010 shared with my son and his lady.

Sitting on Palm Beach 30-3-13 I watched the other people on the beach out for a morning walk or jog, some with a pet dog, others setting up to do some early morning fishing; but most failed to stop and just BE with the emerging Sun on the horizon. Seagulls and other birds celebrated the imminent emergence of our star,  while most were caught up in their own early morning ritual.

Once the golden orb was fully above the horizon and daylight bathed the land, it was time to return home feeling invigorated and grateful for a new day dawning.

Eclipse astrology Charts 14.11.12 & 29.4.14
Eclipse Links Visible

Flipping through my ephemeris this week I discovered a rare Eclipse called ‘A non C’ – it was a term that I had never heard mentioned before and led me on a journey of research and discovery…. this is what I found…

In Life & Astrology amongst the ‘cycles within cycles’ lots of exciting events occur. When it comes to the Eclipse Cycle (often called the Saros Cycle), it has been found that an Eclipse will return to the same sign and house every 18years and the opposite sign and house every 9years. Therefore when we are seeking to understand the significances of an Eclipse in our own Life – look back 18 years or 9 years and check for a link to current circumstances.

 Eclipses are linked to the position North and South Nodes which are known by Astrologers to be symbolic of our Soul’s Destiny – the journey from the ‘comfortable’ & familiar past towards the often unknown future.  It is wise to consult a Professional Astrologer if you wish to discover the relevance of any planetary events to your own Life Path/Birth Chart. There is also LOTS of links between Religion & Eclipses.

This writing is about two upcoming Eclipses important in Australia. The first is a Total Solar Eclipse (a New Moon – Sun conjunct Moon, when the Moon will pass between the Earth & Sun causing darkness) on this Wednesday 14.11.12 at 8.10am- visible in North Queensland Australia and parts of the Pacific. The second is the rare ‘A non C’ event on Tuesday 29.4.14 at 4.14pm (a New Moon – Sun conjunct Moon; Annular, central line does not touch Earth surface) also visible in a wide area of Australia. When investigating these two events I found some intriguing links between the two. Read the rest of this entry »

In order to enjoy Regular Remedial Health Massage (RRHM) it is MOST essential to find a Qualified Experienced Natural Health Practitioner with whom you feel totally comfortable & supported.

I recommend you use the following criteria in your search

  • QUALIFICATIONS
  • EXPERIENCE
  • ENVIRONMENT
  • ACCESSIBLE
  • HOLISTIC
  • AFFORDABLE

QUALIFICATIONS = ESSENTIAL!!

Door displays the many Diplomas & Certificates

Ask to see relevant Qualifications

Ask to see credentials – although not always an indicator of a sensitive supportive personality, it is essential that your Therapist has a firm grasp of Basic Anatomy (the location and dynamics of bones/muscles/blood vessels/tendons/nerves etc). In order to gain a recognised qualification a Practitioner must demonstrate a certain level of proficiency in various techniques. Qualifications will often afford them membership to associations such as AMA – a wonderful place to start your search. Yet, some highly Professional Qualified and Experienced Practitioners (myself included) may also operate independently. During a 23 year career since my first Swedish & Sports Massage Diploma (1989); although I was accepted into SNTR, it has not been necessary for me to continue membership.

EXPERIENCE = HIGHLY  DESIRABLE!!

A Practitioner may hold certain level of qualification – BUT it is ONLY by experience that skills develop and continue to grow. During the periods when I have operated a Natural Healing Centre or been involved with Naturopathic Clinic, it was often the case that a qualified person would apply for a job yet was found to be unsuitable due to lack of experience.

I remember my own situation – it was at least 3 months of consistent weekly ‘hands on’ practice in a clinic environment before ‘the flow’ came into my sequence. Over the 23+ years I still continue to improve, adjust and develop my flowing sequence of Deep Tissue Movements.

Extra training and qualifications also help to improve the overall value your Therapist can bring to the Healing Treatment – Reflexology is one additive I believe essential to include in every hour of Remedial Health Massage.

ENVIRONMENT = RELAXING~PRIVATE~ SUPPORTIVE

                Many Natural Healing Centres are often located away from the hustle bustle of shopping centres or busy highways for a VERY good reason. The ideal environment for Improving Health & Healing needs to feel like a Sanctuary – a place removed from stressful sounds and energies such as artificial lightning/air conditioning/traffic noise & pollution. Naturally, sometimes it is necessary and possible to create a peaceful place amongst these dynamics.

Yet, it is desirable and highly recommended that you seek out a Practitioner operating away from such environments. Many people find a Mobile Massage Therapist who is willing to come to their home – as long as you set the room up away from phone/bright light/noise/distractions this can work well. Ideally, you will benefit from visiting a Healing Space already established for that purpose. A welcoming  place where you can enjoy relaxing sounds of nature or healing music, where you feel warm and comfortable and safe; and where you are not rushed/hurried.

ACCESSIBLITY = KEEP IT LOCAL!!

                It is wise to avoid unnecessary travel when accessing your RRHM – a maximum of 25/30min depending on location. Check around your local area (Public Noticeboards/Yellow Pages/Internet/Gumtree) to find the Perfect Remedial Health Practitioner for you. The MOST successful way I have found my clients is by recommendation – ask your friends and family. Ask other people who they know in your area – ask your neighbour, your work colleagues or other participants in your Yoga Class/Gym/Sport.

Once you have located your Ideal Therapist – KEEP Booking Ahead! By making another booking at your current appointment (every 2weeks ideal at first, then every 3 or 4) you are applying action to your intent  of RRHM and well on your way to developing your new Health Habit – your Life will improve & your body will thank you!

HOLISTIC = METAPHYSICAL

Your body is a reflection of your mind ~ Thought Patterns and Unresolved Emotional Energy stuck in the body brings tension/pain/disease. A truly Holistic Natural Health Practitioner will understand and respect the Inner Intelligence that permeates every cell/atom/molecule of your being. Working with you in this way assists your understanding and interpretation of your bodies’ messages, allowing a deeper connection to the Healing Force available to you.

A client and I will often consult with the  suggested Thought Patterns and Affirmations found in the helpful book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ by Louise Hay. At other times it maybe recommended that the client begin a regular practice such as Yoga to aid health/wellbeing; or consider Breathwork/Rebirthing for deeper unresolved issues. Regular Remedial Health Massage continues to be an integral part of EVERY Healing Outcome.

AFFORDABLE = INCENTITIVES??

Regular Remedial Health Massage promotes Rejuvenation & Relaxation

Many times I hear people say “my job is killing me” or “my back is killing me” and similar statements that suggest their stress levels are extremely high. Many are experiencing pain as a result of over-work or a job related injury (such as RSI, strains & sprains, anxiety and depression).

My suggestion of – reducing the workload in some way, is often met with the following replies “cost of living too high”; “mortgage/credit card has to be paid”; “love my work, would be lost without it”; “can’t afford to stop”; “no one to replace me” …and the list goes on.

Unfortunately, we often work week after week forgetting  the need to balance our activity with healthy rest/relaxation. Although “a few beers in front of the telly” constitutes rest to many a hard worker; there are also some simple healthy alternatives that could compliment any current lifestyle.

YOGA is one practice that is gentle, yet powerful for boosting the whole body/mind/spirit. Yoga is ALL about balance ~ a weekly session aids relaxation, flexibility, self-awareness and brings peace. Balance between work and rest/relaxation is often the key to surviving our work commitments, and avoiding illness/injury.

Regular Remedial Health Massage is another wonderful way to bring balance to the whole system – mind/body/spirit. In the past many have held the misconception that Remedial or Therapeutic Massage is mainly to aid recovery from injury – this is a bit like putting the ‘cart before the horse’. Many people (myself included) are committed to regular Massages (every 2 weeks for me, while for others 3/or 4weeks).

 Regular Remedial Health Massage brings a multitude of benefits. Tune into  my Facebook page (hit the LIKE button) to be connected with the many advantages posted each day throughout this month. Or visit my website and leave a contact email address to gain more information. Here is what other people have to say about the many gains to be enjoyed.

A Grand 40day Experience

A chance to raise your vibration with Love

Here we are … in the 2nd quarter of what has been described as a “40day grand experience 15th July to 22 August 2012” …a time to “root out old emotional trash that no longer serves us” and to “Raise your vibration with love“.

What exactly is this ‘grand experience’ all about? As an Astrologer, I decided to investigate.

What I found is … YES we are definitely in a VERY dynamic period. A time of cycles within cycles synchronised amongst the many greater cycles of Life forever unfolding.

…15 July to 22 August is a retrograde period for the planet Mercury. It began at 12 degree Leo and will regress through the sign of Leo till 8.8.12 – where at 1 degree Leo, Mercury then goes direct. On August 22 Mercury will again be at 12 degree Leo, completing the cycle. During this time July 29th is another significant date – when the Sun and Mercury are conjunct (6degree Leo) within the retro cycle.

What many non Astrologers may not realise is …that the true Mercury Retrograde Cycle began way back on 28th May 2012 when the Sun and Mercury (then a direct motion through the zodiac) were conjunct at 7 degree Gemini (the first sign ruled by Mercury). The next Sun/Mercury conjunction happens on 10th September 2012 at 17 degree Virgo (the 2nd sign ruled by Mercury). We average at least 3 Mercury Retrograde cycles each year.

What it means to you and me

 …Astrologically, the planet Mercury represents – my attitude – my thinking – my communication – my voice – my memory – my beliefs = learned behaviour helpful/or hindrance; useful/or out-dated; love/or fear = who’s’ voice are you repeating? = are you repeating someone else’s thought patterns? – your name/how you are Read the rest of this entry »

My first encounter with Amma happened Saturday 17th April 2004. At the time I described it in my diary like this …” at 1.02am after lining up on my knees & waiting at least 4hours (got to venue at 6pm aprox & waited ages to get into hall – then heard a taped speech by Amma on the need for the feminine to reclaim her power as healer & nurturer of all – men, children & planet as her-self).

As I approached Amma I noticed so many others looking adoringly at her as if drugged or ‘high’. . . Then I knelt before her and she clasped my head & drew me to her left breast – it felt so soft. I breathed & relaxed a bit when I realised I was holding back a bit. I felt a lightness like I was resting into a soft cloud; Read the rest of this entry »
