AOL Bulletin – 3rd May 2017 – Bless the Day

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to bless each day you are alive.



Caroline Myss

Published on Apr 3, 2017

Caroline MyssCaroline doesn’t hold back, she states it as she sees it, she says if you think negatively in any way, such as ‘poor me’ or blame another, she says your vibrations or thoughts are toxic and even affirmations won’t work. Telling lies and expecting to be healed won’t work either.  Then she finishes with the most positive thought, so do listen.   In her unique style, she talks about 3 key choices people can make to change their life.  True wisdom, with humour, makes this a compelling talk.

Power Of Ritualby Azriel Re’Shel, Yoga Teacher, Writer and Healing Facilitator.
Starting your day with a simple five minute ritual can change the way you experience life over time.
Rituals put us in contact with the forces moving the universe, that energy that is within all life. We are said to have about 25,000 mornings as an adult. How will you start your day?  Will you start with sacredness, with a ritual that sets your day as an amazing opportunity to be alive and connect with other people and animals, an opportunity to express your creativity and enjoy this beautiful planet, or will you drag yourself out of bed going: “Oh God, another day of work!”
In essence a ritual is about bringing sacredness into your life, and about honouring something greater than you and I. It is about honouring the mystery, and the bringer of life in all things, from the flowers, to the trees, to the birds, the tiny caterpillar glistening on a fresh leaf, or the waking sun, and the moonlight. There is a divine force that moves through all things, like a river, enlivening all of life. It is the same force that moves the plant to flower, the wolf to howl, or lights up a baby’s face.
 “Ritual is the passageway of the soul into the Infinite”  – Algernon Blackwood.

One visionary female artist may have the answer …

Homeless ShelterInspired by the plight of Syrian refugees unfolding on her doorstep in the Middle East, Abeer Seikaly set to work to find a way of helping.
The Jordanian architect, artist and designer created a beautiful and supremely practical housing solution, came up with a design prototype and won the international Lexus Design award.  Abeer Seikaly has been working on developing a prototype for four years. At this stage, she’s done a mock-up tent and is working right now on the second mock-up, which should be developed by next year. It will hopefully be a fully functioning prototype, which she plans to test on an expedition to the Mount Everest summit in 2018. To read more click here

The Academy of Light presents something New!!

A Practical Workshop on Psychic Development and Mediumship over an unprecedented 2 weeks

Gabriel Marks WebsiteWEEK ONE: Activation of Your Psychic Faculties.

You were born with a temporary inherent intuitive and Psychic ability. I say ‘temporary’ because for most of us, through various childhood experiences, we were taught to shut this side of us down. We were taught that to be successful we had to use the logical and analytical side of the brain. We were taught that thinking rather than feeling was the way forward. But despite these old patterns there is a building desire in each of us to reawaken our intuition and reclaim our Psychic abilities.
Please bring a pen and paper or notebook for this practical workshop.

“If the idea of being able to receive extraordinary insights about others through the activation of your Psychic faculties excites you then this is a night you won’t want to miss.”
Eventbrite - A Practical Workshop on Psychic Development over 2 weeks by GABRIEL MARKS.

*Please note our door ticket prices for general admission is $20.
All general bookings via Eventbrite remain at $15 plus booking fees. Concession prices will remain the same – $10. Ticket prices include light refreshments.
**We look forward to seeing you at our event but if something comes up refunds will be given with 24 hours notice prior to the event.

Monday 15th May 2017

WEEK TWO: Mediumship Development.

When most people think of the dead they think of haunted houses or cemeteries.
But in reality Patrick Swayze summed it up quite well in the movie Ghost. Discarnate people are very much alive and well, albeit living in a non-physical dimension. And there is an amazing eagerness that emanates from them whereby they wish to continue to interact with family and friends ‘left behind’. And fortunately with us humans there is a growing desire to learn how to connect and communicate with our passed over loved ones.
There is nothing more thrilling as a Medium than making a connection to the other side and having your evidence and information validated by your client. So, in this practical workshop Gabriel will be presenting exercises for you to tap into your Psychic and Mediumistic abilities. It will be thought provoking and interactive, as we further delve into your sixth sense.
Please bring a pen and paper or notebook for this practical workshop.

“There is nothing more thrilling as a Medium than making a connection to the other side.”

Gabriel has been studying and developing as a Psychic Medium for almost a decade. Learning about the mechanics of Psychic Mediumship, spiritual development and the afterlife has been a passion that continues to take him to new levels of spiritual awareness with each passing day.

Note: The Academy wishes to thank Gabriel for his time and generosity.

Academy of Light LogoIn and Around the Academy with Ari Porter

Before we started the sound journey Rosemary reminded us that the quality of our thoughts had a major impact on the quality of our life. Even our positive affirmations will be overwhelmed if we lapse back into negative thoughts the rest of the time. I love it when synchronicities happen to reinforce a message that has been bought to our attention. And that days message from Abraham Hicks was :

“You’re picky about the car you drive. You’re picky about what you wear. You’re picky about what you put in your
mouth. We want you to be pickier about what you think”

The sound can help clear our cells, so we have a clean page to start with. It is up to us to what we write on it.
Then the beautiful journey began, the sound of each artist flowing like waves over our consciousness
John started with the gentle hum of a Tibetan bell.
Ellie gave a beautiful personalised version of the mantra “Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu”.
Paulien followed with her monochord and chants, which bring a Native American connection to me.
Jewels with her crystal bowls, each one tuned to the vibration of a chakra.
Ellie returning with “Om Mani padmi Hum” accompanied by Joe with the deeper masculine tones
Chimes over our heads like drops of musical light
Paulien’s Tibetan bowls and tones leading us to another level
John’s signature Tibetan Gongs, waxing and waning, to the end of the Journey

Each night has its own feel and for me tonight had a gentle, caressing touch that left us feeling so loved.

Evidently it wasn’t just us that appreciated the night, as a clairvoyant friend who had come for the first time remarked on how many other extra dimensional visitors had been attracted to join us.
Many thanks to all those who contributed and if you would like to contact them to experience more of their gifts, see their contact details below.
