AOL Bulletin – 17th February, 2016 – Relationships

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind us about our thoughts and relationships


Moojiji“When you’re with someone and you can feel a pressure in yourself to be a certain way or be something, that is not true, that is not good. You just have to be the Self and let it navigate its way, because there’s more richness in that, there’s more space in it, there’s much more love in it. If you do what’s right by your own heart, it cannot turn out to be wrong for somebody else.”
An extremely helpful and inciteful 10 minute video.   He makes wonderful sense when he says “no history in the Moment” as he refers to the past which is in our head and he adds “when you are really lost you are open”.

MeditationA 16 minute meditation by Debra Berndt
This is not a hypnosis meditation that “re-programs” your mind, but advanced form of visualization to open up your higher mind to oneness.

Wayne Dyer“As you think so shall you be! Since you cannot physically experience another person, you can only experience them in your mind.
Conclusion: All of the other people in your life are simply thoughts in your mind. Not physical beings to you, but thoughts. Your relationships are all in how you think about the other people of your life. Your experience of all those people is only in your mind. Your feelings about your lovers come from your thoughts.
For example, they may in fact behave in ways that you find offensive. However, your relationship to them when they behave offensively is not determined by their behavior, it is determined only by how you choose to relate to that behavior. Their actions are theirs, you cannot own them, you cannot be them, you can only process them in your mind.”
— Wayne Dyer

Our guests tonight are:

An Evening of SoundAn Evening Of Sound

Come along, turn up to sit or lie down in the wonderful sacred geometry of the Grand Hall to surrender, bliss out and receive sound vibrations THAT MAY TAKE YOU OUT OF BODY! While John and Marc bathe you in extraordinary sound through Marc’s virtuoso didgeridoo, and John’s gongs, Tibetan bowls & bells, chimes, rainstick and ocean drum plus the voices of Joe and Ellie Vandermeer,  plus a wonderful surprise,  DANIEL COATES WILL BE JOINING THE TEAM TONIGHT
A special chant will be introduced tonight. The chant ‘Men-Ha-Ada-Mah’ is from the Keys of Enoch which means “blood transposed into the next level of creation.” It represents the transformation of the blood’s crystals and freeing of the human chemistry from the earthbound dimension so that the blood circulatory system can exist in the next step function of Universal Intelligence, man is then able to exist in the next orbital level of the Universal Mind. Also we will chant ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ PLUS the Gayatri Mantra.
By surrendering, with a quiet mind, to the sound of the giant gongs, didgeridoo and other musical instruments, the natural intelligence of our body can entrain back to a state of wellbeing. It is then up to you to maintain that state by modifying what you think and consume. Everything in creation has its own natural rate of vibration which can be accelerated or decreased by other sources of vibration by the scientific law of sympathetic resonance or entrainment.
Bring a rug/blanket and pillow to lie down or sit as you allow your body to be immersed in these wonderful therapeutic and consciousness-expanding sound waves.
The cells of our bodies tune into these beautiful sounds whether from dig, gongs, drums, bowls, bells, voice and release toxins embedded thought patterns that no longer serve us and the result is that we feel rested relaxed, CLEANSED and REJUVENATED.
Just as a piano tuner is called in to tune up a Steinway to keep it playing in tune with creation so our bodies need to be ”tuned up” so that each organ of our body knows it is supported and loved, knows it’s place in the scheme of things and is in oneness with all creation.

Please email you questions to us or come ten minutes early if that is possible and let Peggy know that you have a question and what it relates to (just write it down on a piece of paper and hand it over) so we are not doubling up on the same question.

 In and Around the Academy
Academy of Light LogoWith Rosemary Butterworth

A wonderful spiritual teacher, Shivallah Dharma, popped into our lives last weekend on his way from Mt. Warning to a festival called “I Am Woman” in Victoria in which he was presenting a Sonic Satsang,  As he was passing through Sydney I asked him to stay on Monday Night and come to the Academy Meeting which he kindly did.  I asked him if he would lead the meditation but in keeping with the magical night that was following, he  played his Peruvian Flute and his Medicine Drum.  Both of which left us in a silent, sacred space.  

We forget sometimes the other kingdoms that are parallel to our own.  The kingdom of Pan and his Earth Elementals, Fairies and Devas.  The kingdom of Nature.  But on Monday Night Adrian (Anteros) of Pure Heart Mysts and Jax (Goldhawk) brought them visibily to us through sound and smell.  As Jax commented, Adrian is probably 97% plant.  To me, he is an elemental in human guise.
It was a night of magic.  We were mesmorised and felt transported, drinking from the Akashic Well of Wisdom, refining our sacred heart and cosmic nature, emerging into coherence with Planetary Shifts whilst the fragrance of his Peruvian – Relationships Myst Spray aligned with the wisdom of tribal science, centering one-self in purpose and moving fluidly through life’s mystery.
The evening was enchanced by the sounds of the didjeridoo, drums, Tibetan and white crystal bowl.  Jax had filled the crystal bowl with water which absorbed the sounds and then gave everyone a small cup of it to toast Nature and themselves.
Many thanks to Adrian (Anteros) and Jax (Goldhawk) for a night of no resistance, just joy and de-light.

HEALTH TIP –  Peanut Butter Test

The Easiest Way to Detect Early Alzheimer’s.

Peanut Butter TestGAINESVILLE, Fla. — A dollop of peanut butter and a ruler can be used to confirm a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer’s disease, University of Florida Health researchers have found. Jennifer Stamps, a graduate student in the UF McKnight Brain Institute Center for Smell and Taste, and her colleagues reported the findings of a small pilot study in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences.   To watch the video and read more click here.

Community Announcement

The ‘Ascension Wave’.
Very soon, the ‘energy activations’ for the ‘Shift’ will begin, but TWO axis lines within this planet will activate.
It is like a Kundalini Awakening for the planet & people, but this planet has two axis lines (‘spines’) both activating at the same time, going in different directions and to different sources.
One of these goes into the ‘Ascension‘.
Academie Therapeutae has compiled several web pages of a FREE detailed tutorial to present this final pre-event knowledge. 
This work came from the  lineage of Teachers which inhabited the Aegean and Black Sea regions. The Records  then passed to the Persian  Mystics. The lineage went eastwards from Turkey to Persia and onwards to the Himalaya.
