Dream Your Life…The Key to Your Future!

From ancient times dreams have been recognised as putting us in touch with the wider universe – both without and within ourselves.  Empires and battles have been won or lost because of the belief in the power of dreams.Dreams come from the deepest part of ourselves – the part that is connected to what is called the “collective unconscious” or “universal mind” that exists in all of us.

We simply cannot process all of the billions of messages we receive from everything and everyone around us – our conscious minds cannot multi-task to that extent!  However, the unconscious mind can perceive all that is happening….and store the information, in case you may have need of it.

Living Your Dream(s)

If you think dreams are just a result of a dodgy dinner, you could be right!

However, if you look at your dreams as a way of the wider world helping you to focus on on the matters that are most beneficial to you (or conversely, avoid those things, people and places that are not good for you!), you’re missing out on a great opportunity to actually live the life that is best suited for who you are!

But I Don’t/Can’t Remember My Dreams

This short video will provide some useful information about a simple system that helps you to harness the power of your dreams.

Aromatherapy: Not Just “Nice Smells”

Aromatherapy is not just about “nice smells” and relaxing in the tub — though both are nice!  Aromatherapy is recognised around the world as a means to support health and wellbeing – from Lavender essential oil pumped through Japanese hospitals for pain relief to oils being used to work with wounded animals in the African bush.

I had the privilege of working with a client in her last days – and the following video talks about the experience of how aromatherapy helped ease her last days of life.

Spice Up Your Health: Treasure in Your Kitchen Cupboard

Good Health is at Hand…In Your Kitchen

turmeric-on-wooden-spoon-and-in-jarIt was Hippocrates – considered the father of modern medicine – who said,

“let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food”

More and more, research on nutrition validate this ancient truth – that we are what we eat, and good health begins at the end of our forks.

The “Hot” Ticket to Good Health: Turmeric

Every day we’re told about some new miracle or power food that we must have for good health, with all kinds of claims made as to their effectiveness.

One of these new “super foods” is actually one that has been used for health enhancing properties for millenia in India as part of Ayurvedic medicine – turmeric.  Even today, newborn babies are annointed with turmeric as a way of keeping them healthy and strong.

Turmeric, or curcuma longa in Latin, is made from the woody roots, or rhizomes of the plant, which has a pretty spiky flower – but she’s not just a pretty face!

Turmeric isn’t just about giving greater colour, depth and subtle aroma to your curry, delicious though it is; it has a proven track record for a number of health benefits, including:

  • Anti-tumoral properties:  I can attest to this; I have used Turmeric essential oil with cancer patients over the years as a good way to support their immune systems with aromatherapy;
  • Improves memory: it may be helpful improve the memories of people in the early stages of diabetes; recent research even suggests that it may help Alzheimer’s patients by arresting the aging of brain cells.
  • Anti-aging properties:  Studies indicate that turmeric helps with premature aging by encouraging the regeneration of the skin.
  • Reduce cholesterol: With so many people on statins these days, why not practice a little preventative medicine and keep your cholesterol low naturally?

Thse are just some of the amazing benefits of that spice sitting on your shelf – isn’t it about time you got to know turmeric a bit better?

Turmeric on the Go

Simply_CurcuminFor those that are not inclined to cooking or perhaps dislike curries — there’s still a way to incorporate turmeric into your diet — simply and naturally.  There are many products on the market, all touting the benefits of turmeric; however, it’s important to know the exact source of anything you buy, particularly if you’re going to be ingesting it.

Friends and clients of mine have reported excellent results with the turmeric capsules they are taking — if you’d like to find out more, contact me for a FREE 15-MINUTE MINI-CONSULTATION, just click here

Working Your Last Nerve: Workplace Stress Series Part 3

Rockin’ Your World:  Crystals and Stress Management

In this third and final part of the Workplace Stress series, a look is being taken at the role of crystals play in maintaining our health and wellbeing.

Crystals have been used for thousands of years for both ornamentation and healing; worn or even ground up for medicinal purposes, various stones were credited with various properties that could impact our health and moods.

We are still calling on the properties of crystals and stones today, though many people may not realise it:  we take magnesium for upset stomachs, doctors use lithium to control  bipolar disorder, we take calcium supplements for our bones — all of them minerals — so we are, quite literally, rocking our world!

Crystal(s) Clear and Calm

Workplace stress has become more and more prevalent as tight budgets and political uncertainty make people even more fearful for their jobs and future.  The emotional weight of worrying about finances and a lack of job security is causing some people to crack under the pressure.

While crystals don’t always work swiftly (depending on the user and circumstances, as well as the crystal itself), they work naturally and in harmony with the body.  Crystals emit their energy gently for the most part; it is therefore recommended that they be worn/held on the body if at all possible, or if too fragile, placed where it can be viewed regularly.  Below are some suggested crystals that can help with reducing some of the stressful feelings experienced in the workplace:

Working Your Last Nerve: Workplace Stress Series Part 2

The Essence(s) of Calm

In this second part of the Workplace Stress series, flower and vibratonal essences are examined for the different ways in which they can help reduce workplace stress.

Essences are a wonderful stress-busting aid as they do not interfere with any treatment or medication being received and can be used by everyone – children, adults, pets and even plants!

(I’m Getting Some) Good Vibrations

Essences – made from flowers, trees, animals, etc. – can be considered as “emotional tuning forks”. What does that mean?

woman-with-hands-on-head-and-covering-eyesIf you look at it from the point of quantum science (which is catching up to ancient wisdom!) – everything in the universe vibrates, meaning that we, too vibrate at a particular signal.  When the inner orchestra that makes up each one of us is playing smoothly, we call it health; if, however, one of the “instruments” in the orchestra goes “out of tune”, we show signs of what we call ill health.  In the case of essences, the instrument in question is our emotional state.

Essences are the energetic signature of the flower, tree, crystal, etc. they were made from; they carry a “true note” and issue a corrective signal that helps bring the out of tune emotion back into balance.

The “good vibrations” of the essences help the discordant emotion to get back on song.

Below are some suggested essences to help address some of the emotional issues you may experience in the workplace:
