How exciting! I have been invited to exhibit at Enlighten Adelaide. Another stallholder thought I would be a good fit for this ‘feel good’ festival and the Event Director agreed. Wow! It is wonderful to feel so welcome. Click here for more information and a chance to WIN a weekend pass.

There is a FREE raffle – a door prize with lots of goodies. I have donated a FREE Past-life Regression Therapy session as prize, and I can’t wait to see who wins it.

… and how’s this? Children under 15 are FREE! How seriously cool is that?

I have been learning so much in the past few months… and now it’s time to get my head around creating marketing ads and setting up a great exhibition stall. I’m going to have fun and cook up something a bit off-beat. I am also thinking about putting aside 10 minute appointments so people can have a one-to-one chat with me, or a Reiki attunement.

What do you think?

You are not the same person as you were yesterday…

This is my gift to everyone who is struggling with a transition to a new state of mind or a new stage of life.

Anne Marie’s ‘Meditation for Change’.

“… and as you continue to relax, so calm, so comfortable, I am going to present some ideas to your subconscious mind… suggestions for you to consider, try on and adapt to find your perfect solution to your current issue. There is no right way or wrong way. There is just what works for you. You are a unique and gentle person with a limitless capacity to find creative solutions that work. Allow yourself to discover the solution that is best for you.

You find yourself standing beside a beautiful still pond surrounded by gentle trees. The waters are quiet and calm. There is a hushed stillness in the air. Just being beside this lake is peaceful and calming. Near where you are standing, there is a rock. It is large and smooth and just the right height for you to sit on. When you do, you find that you can see down into the depths of the water. The water is cool and calm, quiet and peaceful. A dragonfly hums past you. You enjoy breathing the clear air, and while the pond is peaceful, the air is fresh and invigorating. Every breathe makes you feels energized and alive.

And as you look into the pond, you realize that there is a seed in the mud at the bottom. You may not be able to see it but you can feel it lying in the soft squishy mud. It’s like it is sleeping… waiting…

And as you watch, it sprouts. A fine white tendril opens from the seed and secures it into the mud. Another tendril unfolds and seeks the light far above. The seed grows. As you watch the tendrils become stronger, connecting it to the earth below, and helping it find the light above. It grows stronger and stronger until finally the tendril, which is now a stem, breaks the surface of the water.

The plant rests, absorbing the rays from the sun above, becoming stronger and stronger. Leaves grow… beautiful big green circles that absorb more and more of the life-giving rays of the sun and returning this energy to the roots far below in the soft squishy mud. Tightly formed buds appear and then begin to flower. This is your flower. It can be any colour or type of flower you choose. This is the flowering of your consciousness… of your life. Feel each petal unfurl and as it does the air is filled with the most glorious fragrance. There is something so amazing and joyful about this smell. It is calming and clarifying. It makes you sure of who you are, what you want and how to go about it.

Sit with your flower for a few minutes and absorb the lessons it has for your life. Make whatever connections you need to with your current experiences. Make sense of the need for life’s changes and natural transitions. Know that you can come back to your flower and this pond whenever you want to distill the lessons about change that are flowering in your life.”

“Every day, I am a new person… Each day your thoughts, intentions, and awareness stir you to change and evolve. See yourself and your loved ones as you are now, not as you were before.”  Brian Weiss MD

Go back to the moment the problem first began… part 2

“Go back to the moment the problem first began.” I knew the story so well. The story of the night I was raped. How many years had it taken me to call it rape? To acknowledge the truth? It ran like a movie in my head. I could see the flames of my rage and I wanted to burn it all down, burn the house down, and hear him scream as the flames took him too. I was scared to go there again. Scared of what I was capable of, even in my own head. I drew myself back from the destructive edge of hatred and the burning rage that was burning me too. I knew how to ignore it but I didn’t know how to heal it.

“Look further” the psychologist said… and so I looked further… further back… to the point at which it began… to the point at which I began.

I was confused. I couldn’t make sense of what I was seeing. I knew I had just been born, I could see me as a baby… but I could also see me on the other side of a veil.

“What is this? Where am I? Am I meant to be here?”

“What do you see?” she asked.

“There is a veil. There is a little girl. She is seven. She is pale with blue eyes and white blonde hair. She looks like me. She looks like I looked when I was seven. Is this me?”

“What is she doing?”

“She is reaching through the veil to me. I am holding her hand. I want to hold her and not let her go, but the veil separates us. She is me… and yet, she is herself too.” Tears fell. I felt a deep connection and recognition. I felt deeply protective of her. I knew somehow, she was me.

I reached the limits of the psychologist’s bravado. There was no more hypnosis for me and for many years, I was left to wonder. Did I really meet myself in a past life? Was it just wishful thinking and vivid imagination? Or was I just as odd and beyond the pale as everyone seemed to believe? I did not meet myself again until 2014.
