A Compassionate World Starts With You

Have you heard about this?  Deepak Chopra and friends are joining together again to increase the compassion on this earth.

We are all touched when someone shows compassion.  The value of love and compassion cannot be underestimated.  The world has the potential to completely change if these values dominate.  Join together online on Saturday, July 11th, with one common intention – to turn around the rising tide of disconnection in the world and, through renewed empathy and love, reconnect to what truly matters. 

We have been advised that 9am PT equates in Sydney is 2am on Sunday.  So good luck!  If you can’t make that then what about getting a group together on our Saturday at 9am and set the same intention.  Set the foundation for the main event!

Find Your Path – Find Your Purpose


What is my Life’s Path? What is my purpose? Why am I here?

These are the questions that we all ask ourselves.

Know that your life’s plan is birthed in love and founded on wisdom.
In the planning room you set your Life’s Mission, decide on your Life’s Gifts to achieve your major and minor goals in this life.

As part of your Life’s plan to complete your life’s mission, other souls volunteer to participate in your life, assisting you on your life’s path.

Therefore you have other souls coming into your life playing out a plethora of roles, be it your family members, close friends, acquaintances, work colleagues, enemies. They have all volunteered to help you learn lessons to achieve the best outcomes for you this life.

In return you have agreed to help these same souls with their journey in varying degrees. 

In the soul planning room, souls seal their devotion of their promises to each other by melding at the 3rd eye.

What is your Life’s Contract?
There are many experiences we have agreed to. Some examples are …

LOVE – such as loss, broken heart, betrayal, etc.
COMPASSION – for yourself, friends, family, animals, mother earth, etc.
COURAGE – to survive in very difficult situations.

These are but a few so come along to find out more about what you are here for. Kathleen will also help you to realise just how much you have achieved to this point in your life.

With Rosemary Butterworth

Have you ever woken up and feel Blessed, warm and fuzzy inside.  That is how I woke up this morning after spending a delightful couple of hours with Master Robyn and she chanted and continually covered us with Blessings.

I had taken some Shungite Crystals because it had come into my consciousness that I had lapsed in my use of them.  When you put a Shungite crystal into your drinking water it enriches it with fullerenes which then get into our own body.  They then behave as a powerful and longest-acting antioxidant – a means to fight free radicals, – oxygen atoms, which lack a single electron.  Fullerenes are able to normalize cellular metabolism, increase enzyme activity, normalize the nerve processes, improving the work capacity of man and his resistance to stress.  They have clearly expressed anti-inflammatory and antihistamine effect, thus relieving pain.  (And I had stopped puting it in my drinking water!!!)  So before the evening began I demonstrated the use and showed, by dowsing the water before I had put the Shungite in and how improved the vibration was after.  We were all impressed.  (I use David Hawkins Scale from his book Power Versus Force and Sydney Tap water measured 180 before adding the crystal, 200 being survival level,  and afterwards, 350 being Transendence).  We have a couple of Shungite left so if you would like one email us and we can set it aside for you to pick up from the next Academy meeting.

Master Robyn watched my ‘experiment’ with interest and then asked for a crystal so we passed her one.  She took the Shungite and Blessed in with Divine Love then popped it into the glass.  The water’s measurement more than quadrupled.  So as our bodies are made of about 70% water – what happens to us when she blesses us.  No wonder I awoke feeling so loved and I hope everyone else who was there last night did too.  I am definitely going to see and hear Dr. and Master Sha when he is in Sydney from the 7th to the 16th July.  See dates and places below.

Master Robyn left us with this reminder:-

Make sure your thoughts are filled with Divine Love

Make sure your words are filled with Divine Love

Make sure your actions are filled with Divine Love

What a wonderful place we will make the world.

Health -Endorphins

Endorphins are chemicals that are able to cross through the gaps between neurons in order to pass along a message from one to the next.  There are many different kinds and much remains to be learned about their different purposes and functions, but endorphins can be released with many different types of activities.

10-top-tips-to-rewire-your-brain-for-optimum-happinessEndorphins act as both painkiller and as the pay-off for your body’s reward system.  When you hurt yourself (or eat a hot chili pepper), you may get a big dose of endorphins to ease the pain.  You may also get an endorphin blast from talking to a stranger, eating a satisfying meal or being exposed to ultraviolet light.  (The pay-off in the form of your body tapping into its own stash of “opiates” is to let you know you’ve had enough – and convince you to do it again sometime soon.

Overall, the net benefit of cells undergoing all the above changes leads to:
*   Stimulating the growth of nerve connections.
*   Improving cognition by increasing mental productivity
*   Improving our ability to analze and think
*   Enchancing our view of our surroundings
*   Increasing attentiveness
*   Even more happy thoughts

Past student testimonial:

Dreaming the tarot was by far the most memorable course I have ever had the privilege of experiencing. This course worked on levels that far surpassed any form of expectation. To Dream the Tarot was like meeting each of the Major Arcana in person and finding where they sat within me –it awakened the memory of pure soul connection. I was able to feel, see and breathe the Tarot. With deep gratitude’ Crystal Isaac
