The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to see the box and step outside.

FYI – Being Whole Brained

The Brain – Different Sides of the Story

Jill Bolte TaylorOur theme today is the benefits of being whole brained.  As we grow we get different perspectives.  Mostly in the past we have been dominated by the left hemisphere of the brain and in order to expand our consciousness it is necessary to become wholebrained.  This video, Jill Bolte Taylor – My Stroke of Insight, is both entertaining and enlightening and is a wonderful precurser to the following FYI clip.  You may well have seen it (over 15 million people have) but watch it again from your new perspective and see how you experience it this time.  Click here.

Whole Brain Thinking

Whole Brain ThinkingWe found Kathy McKenzie fascinating and informative.  We (Rosemary and Terri) learnt a lot about ourselves.  Kathy talks about four quadrants in the brain and describes them like this:  Right Upper-risk taker and like change (and have a wallet full of old receipts), Right Lower-Feeling Dominated, Left Upper-Wants facts, data, detail, the bottom line, Left Lower-control, safety and doesn’t like change.  You may find that when watching this you can relate to more then one area.  Rosemary for instance was Right Upper and Lower Left and Terri Upper Left and Right Lower.  Together when working in the office we are whole brained!  The trick will be to get the balance individually between all four quadrants!  Click here to view YouTube.

Love Your Life Project

Love Your Life ProjectCongratulations to Anne Hartley, accomplished Life Coach and a friend of the Academy’s for many years.   Anne has just launched the Love Your Life Project, a non-profit organisation, which has been a long time dream of hers.

Anne points out “It’s easy to be happy when everything in your life is running smoothly, it takes skill to be happy when you feel upset, frustrated, hurt or discouraged. The purpose of the Love Your Life Project is to teach positive life skills to empower individuals to be optimistic, resilient and caring. We envision the Love Your Life Project to be a movement that extends beyond Australia to the far corners of the globe. Our aim is to educate, motivate and inspire adults and teens.”

In particluar, one of the things she hopes to do with this project is to support teens and reduce teen suicide.  We find the timing of this very interesting because we have had a three queries this week alone asking how we can help our teens.  We wish the project much success Anne!

So take a few minutes out in your busy day and go to her website, and you will be so glad you did.

With Rosemary Butterworth

As more and more people realise that sound is a wonderful healer,  our sound evenings are growing in number. People arrived on Monday Night with blankets, rugs and pillows, and stretched out on the floor, and let the beautiful sounds from Goldhawk and Suntara (Daniel Cootes,  Luke Brooks), drift across their bodies.  Their music weaved its magic and people spent a wonderful hour, blissed out and relaxed.  After a hard day’s work, it just felt so good.

How did you go with practicing your posture?  Did you notice a change in your thoughts when you stood straight, shoulders back and perhaps even looked at the sky?  Did you have a chance to notice your thoughts when you were walking head down and looking at the ground?  If not, why not try it.  On a ratio of 1 to 10, 1 being not so good and 10 being great, give yourself a score when you catch yourself, lost in thought.  Are you looking down or up.  One lady told us that it was impossible to be stressed when looking at the sky.

We were very pleased to be told that a person had come because someone had forwarded them our Newsletter.  So if you have enjoyed it – why not forward it to a friend.  Help grow our community and the Light.

Health – Cleansing & Activating the Chakras

Chakra Meditation - Emmanuel DagherHere’s a wonderful meditation process from Emmanuel Dagher (  

Emmanuel says “This is a special high vibe process that will bring instant vitality to your body, mind & emotions. By cleansing & activating our Chakra systems on a consistent basis, we create a foundation for the natural well-being within us to emerge as part of our 3rd dimensional experience.”

Miracle Process:
1. Focus your awareness on the root Chakra (base of the spine/rectum area) & simply affirm “I Am” for 30 seconds.
2. Focus your awareness on the sacral Chakra (the middle point between the stomach & the base of the spine/rectum area) & simply affirm “I feel” for 30 second.
3. Focus your awareness on the solar plexis Chakra (just slightly above the belly button) & simply affirm “I do” for 30 seconds.
4. Focus your awareness on the heart Chakra & simply affirm “I love” for 30 seconds.
5. Focus your awareness on the throat Chakra & simply affirm “I speak” for 30 seconds.
6. Focus your awareness on the 3rd eye Chakra (the space in between the eyebrows slightly above eyebrow level) & simply affirm “I see” for 30 seconds.
7. Focus your awareness on the Crown Chakra (the top of the head) & simply affirm “I understand” for 30 seconds.

Emmanuel recommends you try this out a few times a week & watch how good you start to feel over time. Share your experiences with Emmanuel and AOL.

Steven Murphy

Steven Murphy

We have enticed Steven Murphy back – much to everyone’s delight!

Steven will give us a fascinating presentation on the “World of Astrology” through his eyes. This will showcase the 12 Sign’s and the 12 Houses of Astrology we commonly hear referred to as the Horoscope.

September 29 is when Venus enters Libra, a date synonymous with the romance of it all.

Ultimately this talk cast’s a wide spot light on “predictive analysis” through the energy of the planets in our universe and places the audience in the big picture.

We have asked Steven to focus on Sydney, Australia and tell us what he sees the ‘stars’ say for the future. Steven will also offer some individual readings at the end of the presentation.

Steve Murphy presented his very popular “New Age – Numerology – Astrology” radio show here in Sydney for more than 11 years from 1998 until 2009.
