AOL Bulletin – 21st May 2014 – The M Factor

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to be magical!

FYI – The Power of a Sound – MMM

 2014 – THE MAGIC OF M!

At the beginning of the year, Barry Eaton, author of No Goodbyes, said that he meditated deeply on what 2014 would bring.  He was given a strong message that the year would include many themes beginning with the letter M.  AND THE FUNNY THING IS THAT THE ACADEMY WAS GIVEN THE SAME MESSAGE.  This is how we came to the themes of Magic, Miracles and Manifesting
So in conjunction with the themes of M, on Monday Night, Tricia Durr took us on a wonderful journey with the Mayan Calender. (See Around the Academy)
As I realised that it was no accident that both Barry and the Academy were given the same strong message, I thought of the most wonderful word that begins with the letter M and of course it is Mother.  Do you realise just how many differnt languages have a word for Mother that begins with M or has Ma in it.  Ma or Ammah, who nurtures and loves us.  Yogananda says “Divine Mother knows our needs”.  It is good to remember this and ask Her for help when we need it.

Morphing into the New You!

Over the past six months there have been some interesting planetary changes and we at the Academy have been aware of the effects of these happenings on peoples physical, mental & emotional bodies.  So when Elizabeth Peru posted on her Facebook page the following we thought it imporant to share it with you.

Elizabeth PeruMARS MOVES DIRECT : Let’s go…In just on 2 hours (from the time of this post) Mars makes it’s forward motion relevant to Earth, after a long retrograde (since late February 2014). We have been building up to this all week and in the past 24 hours you may have felt antsy, somewhat irritated and like you want to throw off an old pair of boots that no longer fit or suit you. Yes? It’s like we are re-emerging into a new day after discovering what no longer serves us. You have been planning your transformation and now you get to action it…
What to expect – globally
Over the past five months your energy has shifted. The old patterns you repeated have changed. You’ve learned. You’re wiser. It’s like you have sung a new song through your energy field and it has literally re-drawn what you look like energetically. Now your body and physical life has to change to fit this new energy pattern. So be patient. It won’t happen overnight. You need to be in this shift for the long haul.
Over the coming days we can expect that:
~ people will move away if they no longer fit your new field.
~ new people who do fit your field will come in.
~ we will be extra focused and creative. Act on your plans.
~ we may need to be in our own space working on what is important.
~ the world around you may go quiet. You need space to re-craft.
You get the picture yeh? And keep in mind that in 3 days we begin the shadow of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde (start June 6/7). So over the next 2 1/2 weeks each day is ultra important and full of messages. Use this period wisely and dedicate to living your life with personal excellence.
Now is a grand time for self-healing and empowerment.  Let’s go and expand.

We hope this helps and to see more about Elizabeth go to

With Rosemary Butterworth

After listening and enjoying so much to Tricia Durr as she explained the Mayan Calendar and how it can given you daily direction in your life, I realised that I had learnt more about it in 1 hour than I had in the last 15 years or so.  It was such a fun night as she used a couple of us as examples of how the 20 gliffs and 13 sounds worked.  So if you want a treat, have a session with Tricia.


Bundjalung Elder, Aboriginal Teacher, Healer Gerry Bostok, passed away early Friday morning. Gerry was a valued friend of John and Rosemary Butterworth and members of The Academy of Light. In the late 90’s The Academy hosted many of Gerry’s workshops where he shared his incredible knowledge of crystals, energy and the land. He will be sadly missed.  Blessings be to you Gerry, for all that you gave us.

THIS WEEKEND – Dont forget May 23 – 25, 2014 at Conscious Living New Earth Festival to be held at Rosehill Gardens Event Centre, JR Fleming Stand Level 2, James Ruse Drive, Rosehill. GREAT VALUE FOR THE OPENING DAY – MAY 23RD CLICK HERE AND RECEIVE A FREE TICKET VOUCHER!  See you there!

Health – Are You Supporting YourSELF?

Pay close attention to what your body needs.  Are your bodies requirements changing?  As your frequency changes so does the need for a remodelling of your environment.  What used to sustain you may no longer do so.  We can resist change but it is inevitable.  Let’s face it what’s the point otherwise!

Does your diet need to change?  Does your home need to be decluttered – made beautiful?  Do your friends sustain you?  Do the places you go make you joyful?

Ask yourself these questions and more.  Find out what the ‘YOU’ right now needs to be at it’s full potential.  You might be surprised at the answer.  …..Terri  Leafy Heart

power of the gong - John ButterworthTHE HEALING POWER OF SOUND – Monthly Sound Night

With John Butterworth, Marc Cottee and (potentially) Michael Williamson

This night is a gift for you to surrender, bliss out and receive while John Butterworth, Marc Cottee and Michael Williamson bathe you in extraordinary sound – Michael with his amazing healing voice in the Tuvan tradition weaving through Marc’s virtuoso didgeridoo, and John’s gongs, Tibetan bowls & bells, chimes, rainstick and ocean drum.

Everything in creation has its own natural rate of vibration which can be accelerated/decreased by other sources of vibration by the scientific law of sympathetic resonance or entrainment.  By surrendering, with a quiet mind, to the sound of the giant gongs, voice, didgeridoo and other musical instruments, the natural intelligence of our body can entrain back to a state of wellbeing.  It is then up to you to thereafter maintain that state by modifying what you think and consume.

Bring a rug/blanket and pillow to lie down as you allow your body to be immersed in these wonderful therapeutic and consciousness-expanding sound waves.

Join us in the Great Hall!

Spirituality for 2014 with ROBYN COLLINS

The tools of integration are between humankind and the Earth, Creation, Soul and how to live in harmony and oneness with one another and our environment.
You will be empowered to know yourSELF as an awakened spirit with all the grace of conscious awareness in your very own heart and soul.

Robyn embodies the wisdom of spiritual consciousness and holds no ‘specialness’ and encourages the message of equality amongst ALL Beings.

Robyn works by merging with pure consciousness, connecting with the participant’s energy field and energetically directing all energetic and Soul imprints into the field of Eternal Love, Freedom and our True Nature of Being.

Robyn says:  “In our lives every activity, event, birth, life and death that occurs in a particular place leaves behind a vibrational residue which is imprinted into the subconscious and cellular memory of every human being. This imprinted memory is responsible for everything we veil and interpret our life through the natural world. These imprints are stored in the physical, emotional, mental and energetic bodies.

Return to Soul by Robyn CollinsRobyn Collins is a spiritual teacher committed to serving the awakening of humanity.  Her teachings invite seekers to learn how to stop, inquire, and identify the simple & true nature that is at the core of all existence … Silent Conscious Awareness … through Meditative practices and theory,  expand your practice to reach deeper levels of conscious awakening, inner peace and freedom.  Author of: “The Soul Code – Book 1”, “The Soul Code – Book 2” and recent book “Return to Soul” “The Soul Code – Guidance Oracle” and “The Soul Code Meditation Cd’s”
