ABOUT ME ~HER -STORY. Im in love with life to day, but I cant promise you how I’ll feel tomorrow. After 30 odd years of reading absorbing and working with what I believe to be some of the best books ever written by some of the most ingenious men and women of our time, I must conclude, Life is still a mystery to me.In fact the further down the rabbit hole I go the less I know. So I surrender I relax and commit to staying well so that I may enjoy this strange phenomena called life.
I LOVE ART. I deem my art therapy better than any counselor.

all of this food is from my yard -summer 2017, the raspberries have an important job..they take the place of vaccines..in others words they inoculate me.. im Never ill and I NEVER VACCINATE .
TREE CHANGE > the search for good soil >PERMACULTURE
I’m a city girl . Fitzroy was my beloved home and the closet thing to New York City in Australia to me at least but its no place to raise a child. The pollution alone was bad, the soil was full of lead. I knew if I couldn’t feed my child home grown organic food there , I would find a place where I could. I began looking for towns with good soil. It was a simple as that. A few yrs later, I was care taking -renting a permaculture property in Narbethong. Narby is a tiny town between Healesville and Marysville. we lived there for 2 yrs. Realizing it was bit too far out I moved in the township of healesville and bought this home, with the intent to create a food garden, a yoga school. a paradise really. I was successful .My daughter and I thrived . Permaculture doesn’t mean your garden will look like an instragram garden. My garden is messy. Its full of flowers for the bees with a few crops scattered and big old trees . I will not break my back. Instead if I need organic food I go to the local market or to the health food store . I have been very successful with summer/autumn foods. I have massive fig, a massive fuzzy peach, which I leave for the birds, a massive crop of raspberries, toms, spuds and herbs and that’s enough. I don’t garden over winter I allow the soil to rest. I throw food on it.I allow it to become feral .This way its full of microbes so that when we plant out in the late spring when the ground has thawed the soil is rich in nutrients and ready to go
organic vegan pizza. most of the ingredients are from my yard. i buy onions i buy bread- always organic .
TEACHER ARCHETYPE I began teaching when I was a kid, it came naturally . At 12 yrs of age I was teaching ballet to tiny totts, then later in my 20’s I taught at John Morrey School of Hairdressing as a hair color technician .
NEW YORK It was my hairdressing world that led me to a very exciting 2 yr chapter in New York. Below is a Polaroid of a job as a makeup artist when i was at FORDS. This a favorite because the Twin Towers were alive with color in the background.The pick was taken beneath the Brooklyn Bridge
1986..i lived and worked in NEW YORK ..at FORDS.. as a makeup artist. this is a Polaroid of one of my jobs…I LOVE IT because of the TWIN TOWERS IN THE BACK GROUND.
I worked at FORDS modelling agency as a make up artist from 1986 -87. The obvious beauty myth scenario got under my skin, I truly couldn’t stomach it. I found my self a great part time job in a super funky hair salon in spring street Soho called SO HAIR.
That was then. It was a crazy time, I enjoyed a life style that might kill me now. It almost did me in then. I’m grateful I survived. Ironically whilst I was at my most NIHILISTIC I discovered Yoga. I WAS SAVED.
I’ve mellowed now, 30 yrs of meditation ~ contemplation and yoga will change anyone, if that is what they truly desire .
BALLET> MANGLED PELVIS My first love was ballet. I began at 5 yrs of age. by the time I was 12 I was being groomed for the ozzie ballet school . During that time I sustained an injury that would last a life time . My right hip was damaged from being forced to over extend. we had no idea what was to come .
HERNATION #1 1981 21 yrs Ballet then hairdressing compounded the pelvic injury. At 21 I was a mess. my spine collapsed . I had traction with big leather straps in hospital . Very old school but I wish they ‘d bring it back. It was amazing. the pain set in it was during these years i became familiar with serious pain relief drugs. The addict is ENCOURAGED over and over by the doctors.
HERNIATION #2 1990 30 yrs MELBOURNE UNI- GUILD DANCE THEATRE dance at melbourne uni – to be completed . CODINNE ADDICTION
HERNIATION #3 2010 > ~ Of the 3 L4 L5 herniation’s the last was in 2010. I was teaching makeup for photography at tafe, when one day my spine just gave up. I had been in pain for months but I was a single mum with a 16 yr old teen in high school, it was a very expensive time. I had to work full time to put food on the table so I took pain relief. The disk eventually herniated to the point of no return. Surgery became the doctors MANTRA
I DON’T DO THE KNIFE, I’m a self healer..so I set out to heal my spine and I did .
2 yrs later 2012 The long term use of pannadinne forte turned me into an ANGRY JUNKIE. IT WAS A LIVING HELL.
I WAS DISGUSTED with my self
CHANGE WAS essential
Shortly after I discovered that no dis~ease can exist in an alkali solution. I then began the very long exciting and grueling journey of changing my body acid alkali balance . I KNEW ALL OF THE DOCS THE DRUGS WOULD PREVENT HEALING. i had to detox
I also learned via DR BRUCE LIPTON that our belief systems literally trump all science. Another inconvenient truth. This belief meant I WAS IN CONTROL It was the GOLDEN TICKET.
2013 Even though I was in acute leg and foot nerve pain I decided to DETOX from All pharmacology in the pursuit to BECOME MORE ALKALI . I knew this was the best path in every cell of my being- it was a mighty task.
In order to heal my spine and nerves I had to be 100% committed for at least 3 years-7 years. I HAD my work cut out for me
SEE DEEPAK CHOPRA on CELL DIVISION
We have trillions of cells… HEALING my cellular body was the path so I researched . The outcome > I gained a new understanding of all disease. I simply needed to be alkali in order to heal. Becoming alkali was like having a NEW ART CANVAS..it made sense… once I was alkali I WOULD HEAL NATURALLY was my belief < I became an ORGANIC VEGAN , I listened to PRAYER and MEDITATION all day and every night and slept with 528 HERZ & 936 HERZ aka solfeggio frequencies .
SOUND HEALING aka HEALING HERZ Solfeggio Frequencies – were gifted to us by ST JOHN. this is worthy of researching.
2014 The sciatic nerve had been crushed for approx 3 years now, leading to peripheral nuropathy.~~ MY NEW NIGHTMARE.
PERIPHERAL NUROPATHY aka MANGLED AGONIZING NERVES is VERY common. Unfortunately most folk accept the diagnosis , they DONT RESEARCH how they got to this point. they blindly trust trust their doctor and end up in a chair , not me.
There are 2 kinds of NUROPTHAY- Acquired Nuropathy – the nerves were crushed in an accident>THAT’S ME..or DIABETIC nuropathy – long term poor life style choices have created chronic nerve inflammation > NOT ME
2014 ~ BIG TIME HEALING > I eliminated WiFi from my home – got rid of my iphone to minimize harmful EM RADIATION – became organic vegan.
the out come > lost lots of NASTY BODY FAT — including the fat round my heart muscle and liver…REDUCED all inflammation — eventually healed.
2018 Now at 58 I’ve beaten IT ALL… BRAVO ME. While I was healing my legs and spine I incidentally healed my osteo~arthritis in my spine and neck, long term high blood pressure, long term depression, long term lower back pain and lastly long term insomnia.
The point is~when we are more alkali than acid we will eventually heal. AND When we begin a NEW CONVERSATION with ourselves we will CEMENT this healing . eg: a good conversation might be… ”’IF I stay on track 100% and completely trust my process with out ever doubting it I know I will have 100% success” This belief is totally opposed to the current popular belief that only the DOCTOR can heal you. Even tho our gps and nurses are truly innocent, in truth the doctor and big pharma are part of a massive MULTI BILLION DOLLAR PER ANNUN scam..”keep em sick”” keep them dependent” that is the main reason cannabis is still illegal .
JUST DOING the” work”, eating appropriately, etc isn’t enough, we must exist in a some what euphoric state ~ in the firm and often unusual belief that we are ALREADY HEALING ! All we need is time and a fixed awareness, a fixed routine and TIME
Blissing out is” MY WORK ”..I avoid booze meat and angry folk
2017 THE BUTTERFLY emerges … in brief~~after 7 long years on the floor~ living as a recluse ~ I have healed my spine and my legs but cannot feel my feet… Yet.
LATE 2017 fell on a clean slippery floor and broke my left upper fema..aka my hip, tore right shoulder cough. that was 4 months ago no . its all healed very nicely.
SPRING 2018 I’m pretty much fully recovered from all ills and am focusing on private classes .LIFE IS GOOD.
GRATEFUL My healing journey lasted 7 years, during which time my my agenda altered dramatically HEALING was all that mattered…. the yoga school partially closed I only taught 3 or 4 Classes a week~ I visited Magnetic Island off the coast of Townsville many times ~~as part of my healing process.
LOVE BUT DON’T OWN THE ILLNESS. ” THE” injury not” MY” INJURY was my greatest alli. My life has changed in ways I could never have imagined . Now I’m committed to NEVER allowing any pain of any kind to persist. I now know the injury occurred only because I ignored the pain. To make life tolerable I took pain relief everyday. I became an addict . The legal drugs destroyed my bone density . By the time I was 50 , my old injured spine just crumbled.
NOW MY DAY consists of zero stress, eating really well, not working for more than 3 hrs a day. I garden , I dance and stretch every day. I walk everywhere , I have no mobile phone~I use a camera and a landline.
MY OLD OFFICE….the yoga room….due to 3 massive floods late 2017 it closed.. I am now living in it and i LOVE IT
In 2001 I studied permaculture ~ organic sustainable farming in 2001, with local permaculture guru , Graeme George. Now i grow organic herbs for all of my medicinal needs .
1987-Whilst living in Washington DC, my hubbies home town, I began an on line Naturopathy course of which I completed herbalism and Iridology, but it was cut short abruptly when I decided to leave my hubby and come home. So even though I did not get a diploma I know alot and apply it all daily. I hope I can be of use to you. I do know this , if we are to rely on our doctors to usher us to into old age we may be very disappointed.
If you managed to read all of this ~ thank you. MY intent is to be of use to you , to build you up , to make you realize that you are amazing and that you can heal your own body .The only thing that is missing is information. Once the body becomes more alkali than acidic we begin to think differently, we become smarter ! or a better way to say that is~ when we r alkali , we are simply the best version of ourselves.
