Insights into your Wellbeing

We are so distracted these days that it can be extremely difficult to tap into what is often our greatest source of information and guidance - ourselves! Using our insight, intuition and intellect all fall under the energy centre of the 6th Chakra, otherwise known as the 3rd eye. You may have one or more of the following physical conditions if your 3rd Eye is out of balance - either over or under active: Attention deficit disorders, including ADHD Insomnia Sleeping very lightly or not enough Sleeping too much Mood swings Very good or very poor memory Fast/ sharp mind or slow/ dull mind Eye sight problems Eye infections Headache and/ or migraine Cognitive decline or dementia In this video on the 3rd Eye I discuss how you can tell if perhaps you have an imbalance in this energy centre, and need to see it a bit more clearly! Even more importantly, I give you lots of tips on how you can bring balance back to your 6th Chakra using the Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing approach.  If you prefer to read all about it, the Blog was published by Sivana East. In the Surroundings aspect of 5 Star Wellbeing I mention that there are crystals and essential oils that you can use to balance your 3rd Eye, these are the ones that I recommend: Crystals Amethyst – mind balancing, addictions,

Tell the Truth for the sake of your Wellbeing

How often do you show and tell your authentic self to the world? So often in this modern world of social media we only share the good stuff, which is really not a true depiction of our whole selves and what we think and feel and have to say. My prediction is that there will be ever-increasing numbers of people with emotional, mental and physical issues that stem from imbalance in the Throat chakra, which is the energy centre associated with Truth - being authentic, being open and making decisions. The Throat is the 5th Chakra out of 7 – the 7 main energy centres that we all have, and where our bodies (on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) are especially open to receiving energy. The areas of the physical body where throat chakra imbalances manifest are: Throat and thyroid conditions Thyroid conditions Fast or slow metabolism and weight management issues Very large or very small appetite Very large or very small mouth Regular indigestion and/ or bad breath Super fast or super slow eating style Ear and nose problems Heightened or reduced senses of taste, smell, or hearing Problems with teeth or jaw (including TMJ pain) Neck pain Dry, chapped lips In the video I discuss other personality, mental and emotional signs of throat chakra imbalance, as well as ways that you can bring balance back

Setting Intentions for 2019 with the January New Moon

I much prefer to talk about intentions for the new year, rather than resolutions!  The word 'intention' to me has a much deeper, internal, more feminine energy than 'resolution', which sounds so external and hard! The best time for writing intentions for the new year is arguably with the first new moon of the year - as this energy always supports us to the sow the seeds of what we want to reap in the future. I recommend a 3 list approach to writing your intentions for the new year, I discuss this approach in this video and also the full Blog, which was published by Sivana East. I also suggest taking a very holistic approach of looking at your life with regards to what intentions you want to set.  To make this easier you might like to consider the Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing aspects of Food, Movement, Sleep, Surroundings and Being. Our first Yin Yoga, Meditation and Reiki Circle of 2019 will give you the opportunity to truly release what is no longer serving you, providing the space to bring in what you want to bring in for the year. May 2019 bring you Peace & Freedom, Love & Happiness and Health & Wellbeing!

Festive Summer Solstice & Full Moon

This time of year, especially in Australia where we tend to run things on the calendar year, we really feel like everything is coming to an end and hopefully most of us also feel like we have the chance of fresh new beginnings with the upcoming new year.  Summer feels like it starts in January and any hot weather at the end of the previous year is just warming us up!  Many people go like crazy to get everything done ‘before Christmas’ because we really have this sense of an ending. Summer Solstice This weekend we have the Summer Solstice on Saturday and the Full Moon on Sunday (its exact time of fullness is early in the morning on Sunday so you could think of it as Saturday night).  And then it’s Christmas Day on Tuesday.  So, we are really being supported by the universe in this sense of things coming to a close over the next week.  This gives you a great opportunity to work out exactly what it is that you want to let go of from 2018 and plan what exactly it is that you want to bring into your life in 2019. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year – the day that we have the most hours of daylight – and spiritually is a day to really step outside of yourself.  Express yourself in the external world, even

Love your Wellbeing? Love Yourself!

We're up to the Heart in my series of Blogs about balancing your Chakras - the 7 main energy centres that we all have, and where our bodies (on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) are especially open to receiving energy. We must first love ourselves before we can love others in any sustainable way but if we are constantly giving our love away to others we often don’t have enough left for ourselves.  This is why balance in the heart chakra is essential.  The heart chakra is the air element energy centre and develops during the fourth decade of life, the 30s – when it is common for people to partner up, settle down and start their own families. The areas of the physical body where heart chakra imbalances manifest are: heart conditions, including abnormal heart rate asthma, and other respiratory conditions generalised anxiety sleep apnea lung conditions poor circulation hot or cold hands blood pressure issues breast problems, including lumps and cancers and conditions affecting the arms and hands. In the video I discuss other personality, mental and emotional signs of heart chakra imbalance, as well as ways that you can bring balance back again.  If you prefer to read the full Blog, it was featured by Sivana East. The essential oils that I mention are: For overactivity Melissa – will help to promote gratitude instead

Communication is Key! Gemini Full Moon November 2018

This month’s Full Moon is on Friday 23rdNovember at 5.07pm, in Melbourne.  Its energy is always felt for a few days either side.  The full moon this month lands in the sign of Gemini – the dualistic twins.  This is a very energising sign – the whole ‘2 is better than 1’ phenomenon!  The Gemini moon also occurs in the Sagittarius sun sign period.  Gemini is an air sign and Sagittarius is a fire sign, and we all know what happens when you give air to a fire – fierce burning, perhaps a lot of smoke, and then potentially a rapid burnout! As always we want to strive for balance and resist letting our own energies becoming too overactive with this universal energy.  Gemini all about extremes rather than balance so beware! Prelude to the December Full Moon The Full Moon in December will also still remain in Gemini but the sun sign will have just flipped over to Capricorn so the energy will be somewhat different.  However, you will have the opportunity with the November full moon to uncover a truth – and I’m about to talk all about communication here! – and for the December full moon to really bring that truth home to roost. Communication, Communication, Communication Gemini is very communication focused but as we have just had Mercury (planet of communication) go into retrograde this could

Fire Up your Wellbeing

This is the third of my Blogs focusing on the holistic health view Chakras and this one is all about the 3rd Chakra - the solar plexus energy centre - which governs our overall sense of Power, Energy and Balance.💥💛🍋🌞 If you would prefer to read the full piece instead of, or as well as, watching the video, it was published by Sivana East. We have 7 main energy centres in the body.  These energy centres operate on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Different systems call the energy centres different names, but almost all traditional systems of medicine recognise these energy centres as well as other minor energy centres, and energy pathways. In my practice I refer to the energy centres as the Chakras – which comes from the Indian tradition.  Many energy healers work with the Chakras. Chakras are areas where the body is very open to receiving energy, from all sources. When it becomes imbalanced the flow of energy into the chakra is depleted or even prevented.   Each chakra governs and works with specific areas of physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.  To get your FREE copy of my Chakra Balancing Ebook click here. Balance in any of the Chakras works on a spectrum, so if you can relate to extremes in any of these areas you may have an imbalanced 3rd Chakra: how energetic you feel in
