Teal Scott – How to Make a Difference in the World

Teal ScottThis is a 7 minute clip from Teal Scott in which she discusses how to deal with the suffering of the world.  Teal Says “When we look at something across the world that causes suffering or when we look at something in someone else’s life that causes them to suffer, we feel powerless. Being empathetic, we want desperately to do something to improve the situation. But we don’t know how. The most crucial thing for us to understand is that we will never feel good about the world we live in, or about ourselves until we stop addressing suffering in terms of specific, isolated incidents. We will only reduce suffering if we treat suffering on this planet as a whole.  When you look at suffering as a whole, you will soon realize that your suffering is a part of that collective suffering. It will then become apparent that the most important thing we could do to reduce suffering in the world is to reduce our own suffering as individuals. You are contributing to world suffering when you suffer as a result of focusing on the suffering of others. Because of this, it can easily be said that the single most important thing you will ever do for world suffering, is to do whatever it takes to enable yourself to be happy.” Please click here to watch this video.

At the Academy, we really recommend practising Ho’oponopono.  It will clear the emotion/suffering within you and therefore, as a bonus, the collective universal suffering.  If you would like to find out more information on practicing Ho’oponopono – please click here.

Also, just another quick note, check out the last clip below.  What a great way to contribute to reducing the collective suffering.  Thank you and lots of love.


The end of the Ego; The Awakening by Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart TolleIn this 5 minute video  Eckhart Tolle discusses how there is no ego apart from our thoughts – the identification with thoughts is the ego (which simply means we believe in every thought that arises).  The thoughts that go through our minds are linked to the collective mind of the culture in which we live in, they are not our thoughts as such but we pick them up from the collective.  As Rosemary has often said before, thought forms are energy, which become an entity.  Thoughts about who we are that we may have picked up from others in our childhood can still be carried around as an entity.  Because of this, many people are suffering with this pain and attacking themselves or others.  Eckhart says “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”  Please watch this clip, it sums up so clearly what happens in the world.  Click here.


Elderly Woman Waves at Students Every Day. Then She Got a HUGE Surprise.

Elderly LadyTinney is an elderly lady who waves at high school students walking by every day on their way to school.  It fills her with joy to bring a smile to their faces.  However, she never expected THEM to give her such a surprise.  This is a 2 minute video that will warm your heart.  You can see from the students reaction this lifts them up as they walk pass their home.  They look forward to seeing her smile, her wave.  Dont forgot, you can have that effect on someone just as easily..  Click here.



“The most crucial thing you can ever do is to reduce your own suffering,
which will lead to reducing the collective suffering of the world.”

Inspired by Teal Scott (refer to FYI above)



“I am now able to fully embrace all the wonderful experiences my life has to offer,
with joy, ease and love.”

Academy of Light - Supporting Your Souls Journey

With Terri

I love it when I learn something new every time I allow myself to be present! Monday night saw Anjel OBryant and Greg Degenhardt present at Mosman for our Academy weekly gathering. Both Greg and Anjel are big Young Living Oil fans. Anjel always adds spice to an evening with her colour expertise. I use Young Living Oils, and have done so for quite some time so I obviously have my own thoughts and understandings of how to use the oils. I could of had the thought “I know all about that. I don’t want to hear that again.” but I didn’t. I showed up, not just because I helped set up and people were relying on me, but because I knew that there was always more. I know that I can only get so much information at one sitting – I won’t remember it all. What I needed to hear/know showed up for me at that time.

Thank you Greg and Anjel! And thanks to Peggy Stephens who puts so much effort into organising the speakers on Monday nights too! Great meditation on Monday night Peggy and wonderful job all round!

Our monthly sound night is on next Monday in the Great Hall at Mosman Arts and Community Centre so don’t miss it! (To find out more look at Monday Nights program in this newsletter.) Oh, and don’t forget to bring something to lie on if you want to bliss out completely!


HEALTH – The Healing Power of Cat Purrs

Article by Micaela Lucy (Daily Infographic):

Jack the Cat“Those crazy cat ladies might be onto something. According to today’s infographic, our feline friends provide us with more than just emotional support. House cats may actually be contributing to our physical well-being. When a cat purrs within a range of 20-140 Hertz, nearby humans may be therapeutically benefiting from these vibrations. Purring has been linked to lowering stress, decreasing symptoms of Dyspnoea, lessening the chances of having a heart attack, and even strengthening bones.

Pet therapy is apparently gaining momentum in many medical communities, and according to Animal Planet’s website, there is scientific research that suggests pet owners live longer than those without pets.

It seems that our own animals have the ability to relieve us of our troubles, or at least make our worries seem less important. The bond between pets and their owners may never be fully understood (cats in particular have always struck me as magical and mysterious–and now they have healing powers?!) but it’s nice to know having a furry confidant around can add years to our lives.

Please go to for full article and to take a look at an amazing graph outlining a selection of health benefits.

Isn’t it interesting that the purring hertz is lower then the colour red (430-480THz) in our spectrum. We know everything has a frequency. Look at the tools you have available to you. Soul Colour Sprays, crystals, music – Alpha Music by John Levine. What’s the right healing frequency for you now? ….Terri

GERRY TAYLOR-WOODVibrational Healing 2

“Vibrational Healing – The Magical Worlds of Earth and Sky”

Gerry will take you on a wondrous journey of discovery from the archetype of raw nature – the God Pan and his Elementals – to the Light Kingdom.

“As Above, So Below” was the Alchemists dictate and we shall see the myriad ways that earth energies and heavenly energies culminate to bring health, healing and spiritual advancement to humanity.

Gerry will illustrate how vibrational medication is the healing of the future and is all around us to use in our daily lives. From nature’s healing plants given to us as energetic flower essences, to the archetypes of archangels at sacred sites and holy cities.

Gerry Taylor-Wood has been a student of the esoteric for over thirty years. She and her husband Richard De Welles are the Guardians of Grail Haven in Queensland and Grail Haven en France in the South of France where they teach subjects for spiritual advancement. Photos of the flower essences from the gardens of Mt Tamborine to sacred places – from majestic Gothic cathedrals to mystical holy wells of Britian and Europe will also be presented.
