AOL Bulletin – 17th May 2017 – Connection

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you that YOU make a difference


The Connected Universe

The Connected UniverseSome of the most beautiful filming you will ever see is in the first couple of minutes.  The subject must interest us all as connection not separation is really where all of us need to be focussed at this time.
In this short teaser made in  2014, crowd funding is mentioned and it was obviously a success because the film was launched last September in LA.  It explores the connection of all things in the Universe. The film is narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart and explores the mechanism of connection of all things in the Universe.   The film can be rented out or purchased.  If you would enjoy seeing the film, let us know and the Academy  will get a copy and we can watch it one Monday Night.

From Solara Zwaneveld

Imagine a large container of your own choosing and colour in front of you. This container is filled with liquid love which could look like sparkling golden light or whatever colour/s you feel you’d like to envision. The colours may change from day to day – just allow whatever is given. There is a large ladle with this container. Now dip your ladle into this liquid love and pour it over yourself, seeing it fill your body and aura and envision it changing your vibration back to love.With each ladle of liquid love that you pour over yourself say the words “I love myself”, and “I love who I am”.

FEEL the love vibrating through you and SMILE as you re-connect with the energies of it.

Michelle LingAkashic Records are a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. Every thought, word, emotion, action generated by soul experience is recorded since its origin and translates into past, present and future possibilities.
Accessing these records helps us solve the mystery around patterns, issues, situations, relationships that we face in day to day life.
For centuries, the Akashic Records were the exclusive domain of mystics, saints, and scholars—and rightly so. Infinite power and wisdom are available in the Records, and they have been entrusted to those who are well prepared for the responsibility of deep knowing.
Times have changed, however. Humanity has reached from the age of dependence to spiritual independence and responsibility and we now can directly access our Akashic records. It only takes us a conscious commitment to seeking and spreading Divine Light and it helps us solve the mystery around patterns, issues, situations, relationships that we face in day to day life.
About Michelle Ling: Michelle is a Certified Akashic Record Practitioner, a Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling, Facilitation Programmes by The Radiant Group on Addictions and Co-dependant Relationships, Waldolf Steiner Early Childhood Journey Course and ‘Brain Gym’ Instructor on Educational Kinesiology (an effective way to treat children with Learning Difficulties, etc.) as well as Reiki Training. Also Michelle has been passionate in working on the ‘Unconscious’ based on Dr. Carl Jung’s theory with Dream Analysis since 1995, and is fortunate to further her innerwork on shadow projection, and the Unconscious with Dr. W. Brugh Joy.

Courses she currently teaches in HK :

  • Conscious Parenting
  • Sexuality and Intimacy
  • Emotional Clearing and Repatterning with essential oils

Michelle also offers personal readings on Akashic Records in Sydney and internationally.

Academy of Light LogoIn and Around the Academy with Ari Porter

Last week Gabriel introduced us to Psychic Development and this week following up with Mediumship Development. He helped clear up the difference between a Psychic and a Medium. A Psychic senses thru the use of their additional sense / intuition  and a Medium uses this sense to communicate with the spirit of someone who has passed over. So all Mediums are Psychic, but not all Psychics are Mediums.
Communication can come in different forms, and sometimes as effects in our physical world, such as lights flickering or blowing, butterflies or other symbols appearing repeatedly, and even scrabble blocks spelling out words.
By way of reinforcement, when Rosemary was using the microphone it started making a sound like a heartbeat. We have all heard the high pitched squeal of feedback on a microphone, but I had never heard a heartbeat before !
As the psychic sense is used for mediumship, we had a warm-up using the psychometry exercise we did last week.  I was encouraged that the results had improved over the previous week. Then onto the new stuff, as Gabriel guided us through a non-threatening process, easier for beginners with eyes closed :
– Open with the Intention of Love, Healing and Connection
– Invite a contact for the person
– Sense them standing behind
– Look down to see their shoes, take notes to describe
Gradually work way up, noting clothes and face
– Ask for any messages
– Say thankyou, they have feelings too

And thank you to Gabriel and Michelle for the great introductions !
Gabriel is offering 6 week courses starting on either Tue 6 June or Thur 8 June.

Don’t forget next week Michelle with be presenting ‘Discovering Akashic Records’ at the Academy.  Please see above for more details.
