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…. most of my art is on the ‘gallery page’
TREE CHANGE > THE SEARCH FOR GOOD SOIL >PERMACULTURE.
Fitzroy was my beloved home, 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 .
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. At 14 I was training at the NATIONAL THEATRE with KATHLEEN GORUM… she beleived I had promise so she pushed me ..alas i pushed pushed too far … I sustained a terrible injury . My right hip was damaged from being forced to over extend. In fact i beleive it was dislocated.
We had no idea what was to come . The Injury shaped my entire life to this day and is of course why I chose to become a yogi
THE SPINAL INJURY TIMELINE.
>>ACUTE PELVIC TRAUMA . 1974. 14 years old . National Theatre Stkilda .
>>L4 L5 HERNATION #1 1981. 21 years old. Ballet then hairdressing compounded the pelvic injury. At 21 my spine collapsed . I became familiar with serious pain relief drugs. The addict is born .
>>L4 L5 HERNIATION #2 1990. 30 years old. Whilst Performing a difficult ballet routine for Melbourne Uni Guild Dance Theater my spine popped again.
>>L4 L5 HERNIATION #3 2010 I was teaching makeup for photography at tafe, when one day my spine just gave up.
The government gave me a disability pension in 2011, It was a god send…
What followed was a huge desire to heal my self
I detoxed from pain relief in 2013…was not easy
I knew that no disease can exist in an alkali solution. so i figured the only way to heal my spine was to be alklai
I WAS CORRECT
I then began the very long exciting and grueling journey of changing my body acid alkali balance .
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 more 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 /VEGO/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.
BY 2014 The sciatic nerve had been crushed for approx 3 years now, leading to peripheral nuropathy.~~ MY NEW NIGHTMARE.
PERIPHERAL Nuropathy is very common. Unfortunately most folk accept that its a permanent problem that cannot be reversed. we must RESEARCH …we must ask how did i get hear ? the clues to healing exist in observing our long term daily habits .
There are 2 kinds of Nuropathy…
Acquired Nuropathy – the nerves were crushed in an injury/ accident>THAT’S ME..or DIABETIC nuropathy – long term poor life style choices have created chronic nerve inflammation .
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.
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.
2019 … ill be 60 next year. pain comes and goes. I use alot of amazing remedies . I meditate and sunbake before 10 am daily when possible. My food intake is mostly organic vegan and rarely drink, and of course i do yoga pilates and breath work EVERY DAY.
HOWEVER ….MIND OVER MATTER
Eating and exercising well etc is not enough though. We must exist in a some what euphoric state ~ in the firm and often unusual belief that we are ALREADY HEALING !
Blissing out is” MY WORK ”..I avoid booze meat and angry folk
GRATEFUL > full of greatness
My healing journey lasted 10 years, during which time i have a 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 to soak my beloved temple in warm ocean .
MY ILLNESS IS MY NEW FRIEND
The injury or illness is my greatest alli. My life has changed in ways I could never have imagined .
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 .
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.
THANK YOU BLESS YOU
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.
