AOL Bulletin : 17th October 2018 – Being Connected

In and Around the Academy

Tom Ledder AcademyTom Ledder gave us a unique hands-on opportunity to experience the light healing codes of the Selenite Swords of Light.
The evening began with a crystal bowl cleansing by sound healer Cynthia Kendall, followed by the powerful light language of Maryke del Castillo.
We were then each given a selenite sword to work with for the evening and learned how to use them to clear our chakras. We also received a light body activation as we connected to the sacred feminine.  After the activation and chakra clearing, I felt lighter, peaceful and more connected to source.
Tom Ledder began his personal journey into energy healing when he witnessed the healing powers of selenite at a festival 11 years ago. He was so captivated that he decided to leave the corporate world to create his own selenite swords.
As a master craftsman, Tom creates each sword as a labour of love. Each sword is a unique piece of artwork, sourced from top quality selenite from Morocco. The handles are imbedded with high frequency materials, which are magnified by the selenite.
“The swords can be used to activate, clear and balance the chakras and energy meridians in the body. They can also activate earth grids to bring healing to the planet. “ explains Tom Ledder.
Tom’s impressive collection of swords were for sale on the evening and so was a beautiful collection of vibrant scarves, personally activated by Maryke, which could be used for altars or personal wear.
Tom Ledder comes every year to Australia to run light worker training programs – teaching participants the different ways to use his selenite swords. Tom will be running his workshops throughout Australia.  Visit for more information.

Ocha Sheehan

Ocha has a deep understanding of the Earth’s energy system through all of her worlds and portals, and how this is interconnected with humanity. She will be talking at the Academy about this connection in relation to the portals of Sydney and how they can assist you in your spiritual development.
She will also lead you into a short meditation journey into to a light temple within the Blue Mountains through the Inner Earth.
With a previous background as an ecologist, she now assists others to connect to their true essence and find their place of belonging through her courses, Opening to Earth and Opening the Worlds of the Earth.
Her new course, the Sydney Portals Program, focuses entirely on the portals of the local area and their connection to the Blue Mountains. This is an amazing opportunity to experience the healing power of Earth ceremony and working with the guardian keepers and nature spirits of this land that opens you to your own unique essence and Earth connection.

A Heart Shaman’s Initiation to the Fifth Dimension

Simon Hollington

Simon Hollington is a heart shaman, yogi and meditation teacher on the Maitreya  lineage. Simon will be demonstrating heart-based consciousness, whereby the heart becomes the master of the brain.
It is a physical process to move the locus of consciousness from your head into your heart. It is only your consciousness that matters, nobody else’s. You are the universe, and you need to create New Earth from within your heart.
He will discuss 5th dimensional life and the aboriginal perspective on the harmonic system, interactive with the Song Lines.
The brain looks for problems to solve and, in the process, creates problems. It all begins with self love, simple but often missed in the various teachings available today.
Simon has worked with different indigenous cultures and had several initiation experiences on the vortex energy centers. He teaches a heart-based meditation system which activates your Merkabah, introduced to the west by the Columbian, Mayan, Kahuna, Druid, and other Pan Shamanic Cultures.
Meditating on the vortex energy centers and clearing out blockages from traumatic life events will help us achieve higher consciousness more easily as we move into the fifth dimension.
The message from the world’s indigenous people is to live in unity consciousness from the heart.
Removing blockages to self love is critical. Blocks such as unworthiness, can be cleared in a one -to -one session, on the Song Line Confluence, which I conduct near Manly, one of the most powerful sites in New South Wales. If you begin now, with Angelic Violet Flame Assistance, in six-month’s time you will be in tune with Ascension.
On the night Simon will guide us in a meditation to move from our head into our heart dissolving all issues of lack, separation, fear, and endless wants.

 A Beautiful Mantra by the Dalai Lama

Dalai LamaThe mantra Om Mani Pädme Hum is easy to say yet quite powerful, because it contains the essence of the entire teaching. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics, and Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. Pä, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance, Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration, and the final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom. So in this way recitation of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these six perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?
