AOL Bulletin – 26th October 2017

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to think about what you choose

FYI – Fear and Imagination

Karen Thompson WalkerImagine you’re a shipwrecked sailor adrift in the enormous Pacific. You can choose one of three directions and save yourself and your shipmates — but each choice comes with a fearful consequence too. How do you choose? In telling the story of the whaleship Essex, novelist Karen Thompson Walker shows how fear propels imagination, as it forces us to imagine the possible futures and how to cope with them.

The cells of your body will be saturated with these healing frequencies and will activate the innate healing intelligence of your body helping you into a state of wellbeing.

In and Around the Academy with Debbie S & Jax

Shelly and Jason created such a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere for all of us on Monday night. We were all so blessed to receive mini healings from both of them as they worked together sharing with us the magic of their healing energy.

With the combination of crystals, sound, oils and hands on healing, I personally had profound shifts throughout my body.  I could feel my chakras opening and heat travelling through my body clearing blockages.  I am so grateful to have experienced Shelly and Jason’s healing technique and look forward to experiencing a session very soon. A truly unique experience that I highly recommend.

Jason Engelbrecht emphasised how powerful Shungite is in removing negative energies –  a few articles relating to how effective it is in purifying drinking water as well.
Below are some interesting articles and links.

Love & light,

Grail Have SymbolGrail Haven bottled water has changed. It is no longer available in its present form. Should you want this unique and precious water there are two ways to obtain it. One is to make a pilgrimage to Mt Tamborine and collect the water. The other is to courier or post bottles to us to fill and we send them back to you. For instance, Ian White of the Australian Bush Flower Essences couriers amber glass bottles, we hand fill them and they are couriered back to him. This way you have the water straight from the springs as ‘raw’. For this we ask for a donation to the Grail Haven Not for Profit Fellowship. This money assists in maintaining Grail Haven as a place of beauty, peace, retreat and healing. Please contact us to order the water, the website no longer takes orders.
