Landing In Lockdown Then Quarantine!

Landing In Lockdown Then Quarantine!

I found myself in a precarious position, I was forced into ‘lockdown’ in Victoria while visiting my father.  Along with all other Victorians I was sharing their plight in the cold of winter.

I have been known to say to my family, ‘no one is to die in Winter, get married, or have any celebration that requires my presence because it’s just too cold and I won’t be there for that.’

Indeed my trip to Melbourne was to only be for four days.  “Life Is What Happens When You Are Busy Making Other Plans, as John Lennon’s words ring out to me!”   I busied myself sorting out dads’ place by going through various cupboards, draws, storage areas, and more.  Preparing meals for dad, that were healthy and wholesome and enjoying his beautiful company while forced into a Melbourne Lockdown that came out of nowhere but, then when I think about it now, was highly likely to happen!

The Art Of Service

The Art Of Service

Where has the art of service gone these days? 

Recently I called into a well known ‘sports shoe store‘, for some runners, well that was the plan, only to walk into the store, not receive eye contact from the salesperson, in fact, he just turned his back to both myself and my husband, so we decided not to bother, and no runners were purchased that day.

‘Attitude of Gratitude’

‘Attitude of Gratitude’

Waking up ‘grateful’ is the best tonic for ‘life’, but it doesn’t just happen, you put steps in place so that all of that gratitude just rolls in, and this is how I do it…

I start with exercise, yes even when I don’t feel very energetic, I make an effort because movement + mindset = positive feelings.  That equation has been revolutionary for me, and I wanted to share that idea with you. (more…)

Don’t Wait For The Diagnosis!

Don’t Wait For The Diagnosis!

You know every day is an opportunity to create a mini health retreat experience, however, some people need the diagnosis to jolt them into action!

One of my clients came to me with a folder full of X-rays, doctor reports, Medication details and appointments for the proposed surgery date. They were now faced with the prospect of their mortality and realized that everything they had been doing up until that present day, had been creating their disease, and they were abruptly brought into the zone, where the focus was now on the new lifestyle habits and choices, and the new emphasis on living, but now with URGENCY!

This person was in some mental turmoil, to say the least, but now completely motivated to make some changes.  My role in all this was to help my client identify how creative they were in their design and the ingredients they were using for their ‘lifestyle disease cake’.  I wanted to help this person identify what brought the condition to them in the first place.

I ask this question, ‘What is the recipe for disease?’  You see, it’s one thing to remove the cyst or lump; it’s common to have the surgery, have the offending ‘end result’ removed, but who’s looking at what created the problem in the first place.  Removal means the issue is visibly dealt with, however, there is every chance it will come back.  You have to evaluate the past to prevent the reoccurrence, and you need to look at your role in all of this, your creative role! 

My client can now see that there was a very detailed ‘recipe’ for the condition created, and although it may appear that the ‘disease cake’ is cooking away in the oven on high temp, there is now an awareness.

The recipe for any ‘disease cake’ usually has one dominating ingredient!  This one dominating ingredient is ‘STRESS’.

If you were baking a real traditional type cake, you would add an egg or two, right?  With the ‘disease cake’ I look for the traumatic time in your history or ‘herstory’, the stressful situation that manifested perhaps months or years back.  Your recipe for your disease cake is always going to be unique because you are unique, but the binding ingredient for your ‘disease cake’ will always be stress, or should I say your perception of what is going on around you.

Your real cake recipe would have flour and liquid of some sort, in the disease cake the liquid part is the ‘meaning, the emphasis’ you place on things that happen to ‘you’ or that ‘you’ are going through.

I see people connect the dots when I ask them about a traumatic situation or a stressful time that they went through and I find out how they handled it.  After all that evaluation, I’m happy to say there is some good news.  One can always lay new foundations for a whole new healthy ‘you’.  This is why I have created specific retreats, like the ‘Lifestyle Reset Retreat’, more on that in a moment!

‘The good news’, I reminded my client, ‘is one can lay the foundations for Model and Make ‘YOU’ 12 months from the existing date – therefore stripping back the diseased tissue with good nutrition, juices and other lifestyle alterations that will not only bring one into alignment with vitality but empower one to take charge of their own health.  You get a clearer head, and with clarity, everything looks better; you are stronger and more able to resist the destructive ingredients that otherwise would have been very easily invited back into your life!

You have the power to create ‘magnificent health’, and turn your disease into ‘liv-ease’  – living with ease and grace.

Observing nature in all her forms, following natural hygiene principals, cleaning out the colon, eating more life-giving foods, and really thinking about what you are thinking about!

Fact: Essential oils are a great Ali for helping the body and mind to calm down, to regenerate and to shift state.  This is also why we in our social and essential oils group love the benefits of the ‘Nature’s Solutions Enrolment kit’, which helps one to facilitate ‘change’ in everything from transforming a home renovation, cleaning a room or two, decluttering and discarding unwanted items, which ends up with psychological benefits for all.  See my article on ‘decluttering’.
