Jump into your inner-self with a Self-Box

Breaking Old Habits and Starting Fresh Workshop

Monday January 27th, 2014 @ Blackwood

$90.00 per person

RSVP by: January 20th

It’s a new year, start  fresh, give yourself the best chance of being who your really are and achieving what you really want.  As the venue is at my wonderful healing space at Blackwood spaces will be limited.

To make a Self-Box you take a simple box with a lid, it can be any box a shoe box or something bigger or smaller. The box you choose is part of the process. Then you decorate the edges of the box inside and out. Each edge represents a different part of your consciousness. There are no right or wrong ways to decorate your box, it is completely up to you. The main thing to remember is that it is an intuitive and interactive process between you and your inner-self. Some would say that it is a meditative process. Your box can be decorated with paper, feathers, glitter, pictures, paint whatever takes your fancy. It is a simply and fun process but at the same time profoundly moving.

I still have the Self-Box I made during my Art Therapy training, it is a very personal keepsake that is a precious record of where I was at, at the time. I discovered a lot about myself whilst making my Self-Box as will you no matter your creative talent or perceived lack thereof.

Take the Leap and Jump into a new year and a new you!


May 2011 Newsletter

Hi, everyone.  I think I have already missed two months of newsletters, but I am back on track.  To make up for the missing newsletters this one will be longer and jammed pack with some useful information to help you keep on the wellness track!

Some of you may be aware that I visited Bali again in March, mainly to secure wholesalers for Soul Alchemy, but also to experience healing Bali style.  I experienced the healing energies of three different healers, all with very different styles.  One was very connected to animal energies and hence used this in his healing practices.  We had an interesting time of sharing knowledge afterwards as there were things I knew that he didn’t and vice versa.

The second healer was a women who in her own words specialized in “Black Magic” which meant the removal of negativity within an individual.  This woman brought new meaning to the concept of no pain no gain.  From her I learnt that in Bali there are many healers and psychics and they all have their own specialty.  Almost like in the medical world if you have a broken bone there’s no point in going to the skin specialist.

The third healer was my favourite and was most willing to share and was equally open to my innate wisdom as well.  I intend to go back to spend some time with him at a later date.  Jero had sufficient command of his consciousness that he could run a knife over his arm and not cut it.  He demonstrated the technique on me with a needle! It is really disconcerting watching something like that when part of you knows it is possible and another part doesn’t believe that it is.

I have also started my training to be an Art Therapist a couple of weeks ago.  Part of my homework is to practice via facilitation for others what I have learnt.  So I am running a day seminar in a few weeks time.  Please see the detail further on in the newsletter.

The other exciting thing that has happened that some of your already know is that after 15 years of practice I have finally repainted and re-decorated my treatment room.  It has completely changed the feel of the room and in my opinion it is simply stunning.  So far most of you agree!

 Magnetic Fields

In my February newsletter I briefly mentioned the electro-magnetic detox I had been through after I started sleeping on a Nikken Sleep System.  I highly recommend that everyone invest in one of these especially if you, like most people, spend most of your time surrounded by the electromagnetic fields of modern technology.

I thought I would give you some of the “science” behind magnetic therapy and how it can be of benefit to you.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted by M.I Weintraub and others demonstrated that over a 6 months period pain relief was achieved with those individuals suffering from Symptomatic Diabetic Neuropathy (nerve pain). The magnetic product used for this study was produced by Nikken.

The Earth has power and has its own unique frequency.  It isn’t some sort of new age or spiritual lingo, but a scientific fact. The Earth vibrates at 7.83 hertz or cycles per second, or should I say the Earth’s atmosphere, between its crust and the ionsphere, has a basic frequency of 7.83 hertz.  The Schumann Resonance is the name of the resonance frequency between the Earth’s crust and the ionosphere.  There is a direct correlation between our mental, emotional and physical health and the Schumann Resonance.  Scientist discovered all of these correlations by sending living creatures, including humans, into space.  The Nikken Sleep System is designed to mimic the earth energy field and thereby counteract exposure to the dangerous electromagnetic fields we are exposed to from all of our modern technology.

Magnetic therapy is not a new phenomena, thousands of studies have shown the effectiveness and safety of magnetics, however there is no clear cut understanding how they work so no medical claim can be made.  However, what can be said is that even though it is not know how exactly they work, it is know that they put the body in an environment which catalyses the body’s own natural healing mechanisms.

The Nikken Sleep system which consists of a mattress topper, a Far Infrared fiber with magnetics quilt to optimize body temperature and a pillow which also contains magnets.  Sleeping within a Nikken sleep system is like stepping into a rejuvenating, safe and relaxing cocoon.  I have a demo model which some of you have already tried.  Everyone feels the effect straight away and are usually reluctant to leave.  The Nikken Sleep System will put you in longer periods of REM sleep.  Many people have found that they finally get a good night rest and their ongoing problems with irritability and fatigue are resolved in a remarkable short time.

REM sleep renews the mind.  REM sleep plays a key role in learning and memory. During REM sleep, your brain consolidates and processes the information you’ve learned during the day, forms neural connections that strengthen memory, and replenishes its supply of neurotransmitters, including feel-good chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine that boost your mood during the day.

The effects of sleep deprivation and chronic lack of sleep and/or poor quality sleep

  • Fatigue, lethargy, and lack of motivation
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Reduced creativity and problem-solving skills
  • Inability to cope with stress
  • Reduced immunity; frequent colds and infections
  • Concentration and memory problems
  • Weight gain
  • Impaired motor skills and increased risk of accidents
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems

 If you would like to experience the Nikken Sleep System please let me know and we can organize a time at either Blackwood or Gawler.   If you have you  able you can  also call into Optimum Health at Payneham this Saturday at 2.00 pm and you will be able to trial the sleep system there also.  Please let me know if you wish to attend as space is limited at this venue.

Anyone who would like further information and/or is interested in purchasing a Nikken Sleep System please phone.  The sleep system is a very positive and non-invasive and non time consuming thing you can do to significantly improve your health!

Discovering  Yourself Through Art

 Please come and join me in a day of fun!  The purpose of this day seminar is to create a Self Box, which is a representation of the many facets of yourself.  You do not need to have any artistic skills. As long as you can use scissors, glue and paint you can attend and will get benefit out of the seminar.  This is one of the processes I was taught at my first training and it is a fun and enlightening way of viewing and discovering yourself.

What you will need to bring are: pictures from magazines, ribbons, wrapping paper, wool, foil, decals, buttons, material, beads etc  that you are drawn to over the weeks leading up to the seminar.  You do not have to bring all of these things, but if you like them and are drawn to them bring them.  You will also need a shoe box or a box of a similar size. It doesn’t have to be a rectangle.  Please also bring a lunch platter to share.  If you have spare magazines that can be cut up also bring them along.  Morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

Date & Time:  Sunday 29th of May,  at 9.30am to 5.00pm

Venue:  Blackwood, Shamarie’s Place

Cost: $50

There are only 5 spaces available so if you want to attend let me know as soon as possible.  If it happens to turn out that Saturday suits better for the majority I can change the day to the 28th.  For those of you in the Gawler area who would like to attend you are most welcome.  I hope to be able to offer the same seminar  at Gawler as soon as I find a venue.

Up and coming Possibilities in the next little while, call for expression of interest!

  Thought for the Month…..

Do you know what your core inner truths and beliefs are?  All of our reality animates from our core.  It is our core that dictates what is true for us and what it not, what we experience in our lives and what possibilities are open to us.

Our core does not just consist of truths from this life time, it also includes soul or spiritual beliefs that we hold dear and sacred.  But consider for a moment how do these same spiritual truths about god, the universe and existence limit you expansion and potential?
