AOL Bulletin – 20th August 2014 – Let the Sun In

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to tell someone you love them.

FYI – Waves of Sound and Gratitude

Have You Told Someone How Much They Mean To You?

Lesson in GratitudeThis video on SoulSpot is only small, just over 7 minutes, but it has a big impact!  It shows people being surveyed and asked who they really are grateful for in their lives.  They are asked to write a letter about all the things they appreciate in that person and then read it out to the surveyor.  At this point they think the survey is done – watch and see what they are asked to do next.  Amazing to see how positive the effects of this process where for all who participated.

In our busy world we don’t often stop and tell people how much they mean to us, listing their qualities and how they have been so appreciated.  It’s worth taking the time.

 A Gift of Sound

GongHere is a podcast taken from our Sound Night on the 28th July with Marc Kundalini, John Butterworth and Joe Vandermeer.  You can use it as a meditation or simply sit back with a cup of tea and relax.  Many thanks to Marc for making this available to us.  Click to listen.

Pray For Peace

Here is an amazing clip from Reba McEntire singing  “Pray For Peace”.  It gave us goosebumps!  Plus it’s a very catchy song.  Wouldn’t it be great to get the world to sing it!  Click here.
Here’s what Reba said about “Pray For Peace” on Facebook:

The idea to write the song “Pray For Peace” came to me last year as I was walking on our place in Gallatin, Tn. For days I’d sing, “Pray for Peace”, over and over. It wasn’t until several months later did the other parts start to fall inplace. Some, not until we got into the studio to record it.
I feel this song is a gift from God. I have never worked on a song as long as this one. It went from a bass drum, fiddle and singers to guest artist singing with me, adding more instruments and even a choir and a bagpipe!
It’s an act of perseverance, prayer, hope, fellowship and mostly love.

Thanks Aoife for sending this in to us!  Magic!!!

Don’t forget!  Peace Day is Coming up 21st September. To find out about the Sydney Peace Day Festival click hereSydney Peace Day

Thought Of The Day

In the heart we feel – in the mind we seek. In the cells we sit to do whatever these two wonders ask of us. Ask, feel and do is simply a balanced agreement between timing and creating.

Affirmation – breathe deeply and say daily.

I feel the warmth of the Sun.
It lights up my heart and makes me smile.
I allow the warmth to Radiate out.”

With Rosemary Butterworth

The Power is Within You turned out to be a real fun night.  Tracie Allen helped me give messages.  Russel Byron also came forward and did mediumship while I really enjoyed myself bringing through Angel Messages and acknowledging the gifts that you have brought to the world.   Tracie teaches Mediumship and together with Russel  has offered to step into the space left by Gerry Crowe on the 1st September.  They are  calling their night Explore Your Psychic Power.  It should be very interesting and lots of fun too.

What thrills me is the response we are getting from our circle, how relaxed everyone is.  Peggy gave everyone a name label so we all knew each other’s names and by the end of the night, we were indeed a united family.  We are learning more and more about each other and enjoy the exchanges  during the night.   A cup of tea was welcome at the end  and particularly the home-made rocky road brought by Tracie.

Don’t forget this weekends event The Festival of Dreams in Sydney!  Lots of the Academy favourites are going to be there.  See the ‘Events’ area below for more information.

Health – INCREASE YOUR HAPPINESS – put some sun-Light in your day.

Serotonin constantly fluctuates along with melatonin in the body according to Dr Libby Weaver, author of Accidentally Overweight.

Serotonin is our happy, calm and content hormone.  It makes us very content with our lot in life.  (Melatonin helps us to sleep)

Humans instinctively know that carbohydrate rich food promote serotonin production, which is partly why, when the “I want something” syndrome hits we head for the pantry. 

Pond ReflectionA much healthier way to improve the quality of our day is to do a combination of the following:

–  Go out in the sun.  Expose your eyes to sunlight.
–  Move. Tom Paladino,, says “If you can force yourself to start, 15 to 20 minutes of dancing to the radio or fast walking can reduce a sweet tooth and improve mood.”
–  Eat wisely.  Balance your intake.  Eat the rainbow.  Reduce caffeine and sugar.
–  Commit to doing this for four weeks, every day, and observe if your evening carbohydrate levels settle.  Your serotonin will love you for it.

(Rosemary’s tip:  Accidentally Overweight is a must have in your Home!)
