AOL Bulletin – 26th November 2014 – Transformation

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to take action.

FYI – Take Action & Be Transformed

Transforming the World With Colour

How painting can transform communitiesJodie Williams, Nobel Laureate, quoted the Dalai Lama who said “Change only takes place through action, not through meditation and prayer alone.”  This TED talk is action in full flight.  Titled Haas&Hahn: How painting can transform communities shows artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn creating community art by painting entire neighborhoods, and involving those who live there — from the favelas of Rio to the streets of North Philadelphia. Their idea organically grew and became crowd funded and the neighborhood barbecue was at the centre of it all.  The poorest communities are being transformed and therefore by default so are the people.  Wonderful.  Funny.  Heartening.  Click here to see the 11.23minute transformation.


You Can Transform Now!

Debbie Ford people vs State of IllusionDebbie Ford in the movie People v. The State of Illusion says transformation can occcur in literally seconds.  She reminds us that it doesn’t necessarily take 10 years of therapy or self discovery to remove the past to transform.  Do you believe what your mind is telling you?  Are you buying into this illusion?  By not buying into it you get the opportunity to transform.  The movies great we recommend it and we also recommend Rosemary Butterworth’s book How to Move Forward, Leave Your Thoughts Behind which you can buy through the Academy On-line ShopWatch the clip of Debbie here.

Academy of Light LogoIn and Around the Academy

Although I wasn’t there on Monday Night (still recovering from John of God’s Spiritual Intervention), I heard on the grape vine that the music was soul renewing and nurturing as Suntara’s (Daniel Coates and Luke Brooks) music usually is.  It was a wonderful night.

For those, like me, that were unable to attend on that night I would like to put here a quote from an email that we received this week.

“I love seeing the Academy’s newsletter pop-up in my Inbox.  I find the Academy’s to be personal, inclusive and supportive, no matter what stage of my journey I am on. On the occasions I have been unable to attend the weekly gathering, the newsletter has been a saviour, topping me up energetically, emotionally and spiritually for the week.  I genuinely feel the energy of the group as I read the activities taking place, news of the previous week’s gathering and the soundbites of helpful suggestions. What I also love is that the newsletters aren’t about the latest fads and trends, the content is timeless and conveys wisdom, rather than simply information and knowledge.

For me, to call this a “newsletter” simply does not do it justice – it’s so much more – I think of it as a weekly “soul-letter”.   This, and the intimate community of likeminded people involved in the Academy, support me like a mother ship towing a submarine.

When we were checking the statistics for the Newsletter we found that 13% of the readers lived in the UK and 12% lived in the USA.  It is wonderful to think of the Newsletter going globally.  So to our international readers, I say, if you know or hear of something you would like to share with the world, do write and tell us.  info@aol.org.au 

I look forward to being with you all again next Monday Night as we celebrate with the Angels, an evening led by Tracie Allan and Russell……..  see MONDAY NIGHTS below.


Thought Of The Week

Affirmation –

Breathe deeply and say daily:-

“I Embrace the Golden Light of Love.  I Radiate That Love.”

Health – Clear the past from your home and all of your bodies

Elizabeth GilbertWe wanted to share Elizabeth Gilbert’s article with you this week as the health tip.  It really reasonates with us.  she speaks about a friend who was sharing her joy in transformation.  Here is an excerpt:

“But she had thrown away several giant black garbage bags of it, she said. Because many of those letters and photos and journals, it emerged in the conversation, were relics of her sad old failed relationships, or documents of bad times. She had been holding onto them the way we often do — as some sort of dutiful recording of her complete emotional history — but then she said, “I don’t want my house to be a museum to grief.”

Wow!  Who hasn’t got a host of boxes full of old photos, letters and journals.  Sometimes pased down through the generations.  Are they weighing us down.  Stopping us being who we truly need to be for our Soul’s evolution.  Please read the whole article.  It’s short, funny and insightful.  Click here to read.

SACRED CEREMONY OF THE FULL MOON – FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Circle of LightThe Circle of Light

This year the Sacred Ceremony meditation and ritual evenings presented by Circle of Light have been a great success and are getting more popular due to the beautiful healing energy that is invited into the meditation space as you simply relax, unwind and get in touch with your inner guidance. 

During the full moon, we celebrate and give thanks, as we are empowered by higher spiritual energy to take control and make the changes we need for a more fulfilling life. It is the perfect time to release and breakthrough any limitations and fears that hold you back, creating the space and freedom to step into your power and purpose. 

We also take this time to send healing light and gratitude to mother earth and all beings in the universe.

People have been most grateful for these evenings and report that they feel the powerful healing energies and it leaves them feeling more balanced, peaceful, uplifted, energized and extra clarity. Some people have also reported that they have felt their lives shift very quickly and noticed positive transformations manifesting even after just one evening.

This December Full Moon brings with it the opportunity to Change, Change, Change and as Albert Einstein once said, ‘the solution to a problem cannot be solved at the level of the problem’ we invite you to come and participate in higher energy and pure light that allows all of us to evolve in new and enlightening ways. We have found that higher energies assists with stress, depression, anxiety, fatigue, worry, confusion, relationship issues and so much more.

Together we can make a difference – when we come together in Sacred Ceremony the energy created carries everyone to greater heights than can be achieved alone.

You are welcome to bring a crystal on the night and have it charged with the higher energies, to be used over the holiday period to support and empower you. The colours for the evening will be Blue – pure Spiritual Power. Pink – Divine love in action. Gold – manifestation with ease and grace.
