Sally Gibb-Cumming

Here is a new, unique process that can connect you to your subconscious and reveal the amazing being that you are. It’s fun, it’s enlightening. DON’T MISS THIS.
The magic lies in your own hands …
Through a guided I AM meditation with higher power working through you, Sally will lead you to these stepping stones for you to head off in a direction that your intuitive self is guided to create. The subconscious will bypass the Ego. The direction it takes you is a unique process called “The Stepping Stones to Self Mastery.”
This process will empower your insights and expand your magnificence. Through this you will explore new paradigms of understanding and lay your foundation stones for even greater achievement.

The process is about the possibilities that lie within the amazing realms of the deeper self that have not been accessed in the ordinary way. You will be amazed at how brilliant you are. Please bring your journal if you have one, your favourite pen and an open mind.
Sally says, “Let us dissolve into the vast infinity of possibilities and become the enlightened, insightful beings who make a difference to the world through bringing about unity consciousness via the portal of innovative tools”.

The Atomic Light BodyThe Atomic Light Body


The Academy has invited Kathleen back for the 3rd time as she always leaves us ‘wanting more’! Kathleen last brought us the Crystalline Light Body, now she takes us that one step further, into the next light body.

The Atomic Light Body is the 2nd in the series, and just like the Crystalline Light Body Kathleen was given the inner workings of this wondrous Vehicle over a 2 year period.
A Divine Blue print.

Kathleen takes you on a journey step by step to build this vehicle incorporating how the yin & yang symbol takes you on that first step, she was shown how to build a galaxy from scratch, how to actually make the 90 degree angle in consciousness and how it relates to the Light Body, the inclusion of the Eye Of God, how to split the Atom into 3, and much more. Kathleen has been downloading and experiencing this for the past 9 years.

Just like The Crystalline Light Body showed the connection to the Earth within ourselves, the Atomic Light Body shows the connection to the Universe within.

In and Around the Academy
Academy of Light LogoWith Rosemary Butterworth

Our Q & A Spiritual Forum went delightfully well.  It was a productive, informative and inspiring evening.  The panel consisting of – Rebecca Brown, Julia Smith Warren Mitchell and John Butterworth – answered questions on different levels from different perspectives.  There was something for everyone.  The blend of 2 women and 2 men in the panel perfectly demonstrated the coming together of the Divine Masculine and Divine Femine to create unity.

To finish they were asked “What is one thing that you have learnt that has made a difference?

Warren said that everything is connected – nothing is separate. every thought every action, nothing happens in isoloation.  …….It is all about unity.

Rebecca said “There is no ‘right’ way, no ‘wrong’ – so if you are asking yourself if you are on the right path, am I doing enough, don’t worry.  Everything is love”.

Julia said believe in your Self, your Essence, we all have something to offer.  We are part of the symphony, the unique sound we bring makes a difference.  “I ask myself can I answer from love.  Can I rise above this situation?”  “It is what it is when it is”, quoting her husband.

John said we must be aware of the intention (thoughts and emotions) when using sound it is vital. 

He also said wanted us to be aware we are not essential to the ecology of the earth.  The earth is essential for our existence.  Tread lightly on the earth.

HEALTH TIP – Deepak Chopra’s Tumeric Lentil Soup

tumeric lentil soupTurmeric Lentil Soup

High in fiber, lentils help regulate blood sugar which in turn helps to protect the heart from inflammation. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and has been shown to lower cholesterol, while tomatoes are high in lycopene, an antioxidant that has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attacks. 
  • 1½ cups lentils, rinsed and soaked for 2 hours
  • 2 tablespoons organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, finely grated
  • 1-inch piece of turmeric, finely grated (or 1 tablespoon ground turmeric)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 box crushed tomatoes
  • 2½ cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
Rinse and soak lentils for 2 hours, drain.
Heat the olive oil and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until soft.
Add all herbs and spices except the parsley, and sauté.
Add the lentils and sauté a few minutes, until coated with the herb mixture.
Add the vegetable broth and tomatoes, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley.
Makes 4 servings
Your heart will thank you for this cardiovascular-boosting day of breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
