Bliss Encounter: Deva Premal and Miten by Vanessa Finnigan

“Be a light unto yourself, be a light unto yourself....inescapable love....” These were some of the empowering words from Miten’s most recent album “Inescapable Love” running through my head for days before interviewing the globally adored couple, Deva Premal and Miten. Not only have they been world music and new age chart toppers, if you have had a massage or gone to yoga over the last two decades, they ha ...

So Many Great Teachers! by Vanessa Finnigan

Since my mid 20’s I have met so many amazing people teaching in the areas of: natural medicine, herbal detox, spirituality, energy work, body work, emotional healing, food, art and so many more who have been such an inspiration to me! Each one seemed to come along at the perfect time, with an inspiring message. I am still fascinated by the different people I meet and continue to receive so much from these c ...

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 ...

Seekers Unite! by Vanessa Finnigan

A Day with Marianne Williamson She had us at hello! Actually I felt I was being ‘worked on’ before I arrived for the one day experience, as I didn’t sleep well the night before (which is unusual for me) and didn’t eat much breakfast in the morning (also a rare thing). However, when my partner and I arrived at the Brisbane Convention Centre and found our seats, I felt a serene energy permeating the room whic ...

A Moment with Dr Patch Adams

I was invited to Uplift festival as a media partner in Dec 2014. As a group of media people, we had the opportunity to have 5 mins each with Dr Patch Adams. Dr Adams is a clown, doctor, political activist and teacher. I was inspired by his level of dedication and integrity in assisting the planet. He has devoted 40 years of his life to changing America’s healthcare system and believes that laughter, joy and ...

What Sings to Your Being in 2015?

This year we celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve and it had a totally different energy to it. We had a beautiful dinner, remembered loved ones who had passed and also appreciated each other more than ever before. It didn’t have the same pressured feeling about it like previous years. We also had lunch on Boxing Day with my step son this year as he chose to work on Xmas day to support a disadvantaged famil ...

Reflecting on Creating Something from Nothing

It’s that time of the year when there are of course lots of festive gatherings and ‘things’ to do and for me, it’s also a time to reflect on the year and think about what I’m grateful for. Holistic Bliss has grown this year (we also celebrated our 5th Birthday at Daisy’s Place!!) and we have been able to reach more readers than ever before. This wouldn’t have been possible without a great team, brilliant wr ...

Remembering Dad

It’s been nearly a year since Dad passed and I am in a space I didn’t think I’d be in. I actually feel a sense of connectedness to my Dad that is difficult to explain. I know I have cried a lot over the last year when I miss him being physically in the world and in my life. At the same time I recently celebrated my 40th Birthday and I felt his presence with me and a sense of lightness. I really thought I’d ...

What is Being?

About eleven years ago I meditated in New Zealand for three months full-time....it was an amazing experience but I realised I couldn’t continue to stay there. It was very peaceful but I was avoiding living and creating my life in the world. Back then I thought ‘being’ was all about stillness. These days I know being is many, many more experiences than just stillness. Being for me, is about choosing in each ...

What is My Body Telling Me?

I’ve had some really interesting things happening with my body over the last few weeks and I’d like to share a little bit with you to show how clever our bodies are in giving us information. When the body has some kind of pain or intensity it is trying to tell us something, usually we haven’t heard or received the message earlier and so now the body ramps it up so we can’t ignore it anymore....our bodies ha ...
