Is it time for a Conscious Soul Evolution? by Raelene Byrne

Whenever I hear people say to anyone, “Oh, you just need to love yourself more”...I want to scream!!! What does that REALLY mean? Where do you begin? Through early developmental years when our mind is adjusting to human ways, our experience of love; the giving and receiving of it, is subjective. None of us has the same observations or experiences of love, which makes this whole ‘self-love’ gig an interestin ...

How to Feng Shui your lipstick at different ages By Janine Hall

Have you ever wondered what the essence of colour means to your lips? If so you’re not alone; it’s an ancient tradition dating back centuries.

Too Big for Your Boots Column

Create, succeed...And don’t expect others to be happy for you! In Australia, we don’t often like to talk about our creations. “Talking yourself up”, “being full of yourself” or “being up yourself” are the ways people will often describe us if we do start to declare any personal successes, unless of course you’re a sporting legend or rock star :) There is a big difference though between narcissism (which is ...

Love, Truth and Conscious Coupling by Raelene Byrne

Over the last few years the words of consciousness, awareness, presence and ‘beingness’ have crept into conversations and life choices in all walks of life. The collective energy field is pulsing and offering a new way of living to all who hear the call. One of the areas where change is rapidly required is in relationships.

Seeing the Beauty of Each Other and Ourselves by Vanessa Finnigan

What does disability mean to you? Some might say it’s about being unable to do a range of things that many people take for granted. For others, it may be communicating, behaving and looking a certain way that is considered different or outside the ‘norm’. If we could see each other through the eyes of gratitude, I wonder what that would create? It was a windy summer’s day last December when I met Glen Shepp ...

Integrative Medical Review: Skin Sensation by Vanessa Finnigan

I have had a few facials in my time and many beauticians telling me what was wrong with my skin and the long list of products I needed. Recently I had an experience at Ibuki health which was a breath of fresh air. From the moment I walked through the doors, the team were so warm and friendly with helpful information to share. The team invited me to experience a phyto treatment which involved massaging activ ...

Super Green Power: Review by Vanessa Finnigan

They say ‘change is as good as a holiday!’ And change seems to be my middle name at the moment with the magazine growing and we have also just finished building our house from scratch and have recently moved in. But even the excitement of ‘big change’ can have some effects on the body at times, otherwise known as eustress from positive life events. I must admit, I have not been one to take a lot of suppleme ...

Diary of a Seeker by Vanessa Finnigan

“Enjoying Life as a Discovery....We Are What We Are Looking For, We Are What We Are Seeking” I would like to share some of my bliss, this time from my very own veggie patch at home. The whole process, right from the moment of selecting the organic seeds from the pretty coloured packets and then watching veggies grow in the rich organic soil is magic to me. I love the energising, interactive way of being in ...
