AOL Bulletin – 2nd July 2014 – Happiness Always

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to connect with your happy place.

FYI – Connect & Spread Happiness

What is Happiness? Learn How to Be Happy In Life

Spread happiness This 3.5 minute video is exactly what we need to be aware of.  Hardwork and success do not lead to happiness, happiness leads to success.  We are hard wired to perform at our best when we are happy.  The video focuses on American data but it is relevant for people everywhere.  Be the ripple of happiness and change the world.  View the YouTube here.

Pull down your fences and connect

Gardening Australia-Growing a village  We wanted to share a 5 minute video from Gardening Australia about a Melbourne womens group called RAW (Resilient Aspiring Women).  They have created a community garden which has become a hub/haven.  A point of connection and upliftment.  They set intentions for everything even when planting an individual tree.  One was for abundance and 5 months later (even when it wasn’t supposed to) it bore fruit!

We would like to say to you by pulling down your fences, physically or energetically, and letting others in it will change your life and the life of all those around you.  It is so much harder when we are separated why not make life easier and more joyful.  Identify the fence you have up today and start to break it down.

Human Body Clip art by Phillip MartinTrain Your Mind Meditation … Be Happy
Here is a wonderful test for all those people that regularly repeat “I have to……(do this or that).  The ‘doers’  of this world.  This is wonderful short mindfulness meditation that will help you train your unruly mind. It will teach you to just ‘be’ and enjoy each day as it comes.  It should be said that we did not find this easy!  Click here to listen.

With Terri Hills

“Now I Understand!”  That is one of the comments that has come back to me since KAren Swain ( joined us at the Academy on Monday night.  KAren guided us through an amazing meditation to find our joyful and or loving memory.  Some had an occasion, others a loved one and still others a feeling.  Whatever it was she asked us to be in that space as much as possible.  To know that that energy would naturally draw good things to us.  It’s not about when this happens you’ll be happy it’s about being happy and everything else falls into place.

Next week is a full mediation evening so don’t miss it!

We are noticing that more and more groups are starting up.  (I go to about three or four including the Academy Community gathering on Monday nights!) Working together to increase support systems and raise the individual and group energy.  We encourage you to start a group of like minded friends if you are not already in one because the growth the individiuals are experiencing out of these groups is worth the effort of coming together.  Groups can be for meditation, ceremony or healing.  It doesn’t matter.  Whatever fills the need.  Attend regularly.  The energy will increase.  Just do it and see what difference it makes.

Health -Nutritional Cleansing

Help your body and do a cellular cleanse.  The image below says it all.  It makes so much sense.  How can our bodies be healthy when we don’t clean out the toxins?!  We thank Sandra Venables (Nutritional Cleansing Coach, Classical Homœopath & Clinical Aromatherapist) for the image and for more about this go to:

OPENING OUR HEART through Meditation

“Since your body was born into this world, many things have changed. Your body has changed, your voice has changed, your abilities have changed, your thoughts have changed, your interests or opinions about certain things may have changed, your emotions have changed, your possessions have changed.

Amongst all of these things that have changed, the witness has not changed. You are the eternal witness.

Divine Mothers Blessing by TJHLove is in the air…….. Love is the answer to your questions. Feeling loved is everyone’s true desire. Everything begins and ends with the heart. We will build a Web of Light together knowing that each matters. We will send Love to Mother Earth and the whole world, surrounding our current situation and relationships. When we pray for love to heal our situation, God sends angels to our side.

Feel your vibration being lifted in this space and take this energy with you out into your daily life for the week. Whenever you are feeling low through the week ahead take your mind back to this meditation space and feel your body respond to the higher vibration of the night.

“REINCARNATION”  Walking Through Time and History …

“Two Soulmates” is a chronicle of the spiritual and physical events and experiences of Valerie and John Barrow, and their many lifetimes together.

Come along to hear about Val and John as they share and uplift us with some of their unusual experiences over lifetimes.

Past lives still influence us in this lifetime – not always in a negative way.
How regression and past-life therapy can heal your soul and body.

Over the last thirty or more years, this journey has bonded their minds, bodies and souls to an astonishingly profound degree. Valerie, as an experienced medium and an advanced meditation teacher, has developed an understanding of how regression and past-life therapy can heal our soul and body.
Valerie shares her guidance by her Mentor, their travels to sacred places around the world and the unearthing of the hidden aspects of the story of Magdalene and Jesus, the ghost of Jehanne d’Arc, the ghost of Charles Dickens, Dr. Annie Besant and Rev. Charles Leadbeater, the Pyramids, Uluru, the Sacred Alcheringa Stone and its role in the story of the first humans, with the aid of the star people.

 “Two Soulmates”
“Loved this book, couldn’t stop reading it! Val Barrow is so gentle in expressing the way her journey has unfolded. From the beginning of life on earth, to the present, Val’s mediumship, and her mentors and guides offer wisdom, insight and historical information that gave me a new vision of our existence on this wonderful planet Earth”
