December is well and truly here and I wanted to share with you my Top 3 tips for managing the Festive Season in regards to Food (which as you know is one of the aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing - the others being Sleep, Movement, Surroundings and Being). Don’t worry I’m not going to be a total scrooge about it all! The festive season is actually meant to be at least a little bit of fun, and if that can’t include a touch of overindulgence and treating yourself then there would be something wrong!

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
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
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

October's Full Moon (on the Thursday 25th in Australia) is in the sign of Taurus which gives it a bit of a different flavour to the general full moon energy that supports us to finish, close off and let go of things that no longer serve us.

Many very common symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, respiratory congestion and brain fog can be caused by a silent and often-undiagnosed household toxin - mould! This video discusses how and when to look into whether mould may be causing your wellbeing issues and what to do about it. If you would prefer to read my Blog on the topic, it was published by the Wellness Universe. This topic falls into one of the aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing - Surroundings. I also cover some simple steps to take to reduce the risk of mould becoming a problem in your home: Open up: open doors and windows as often as possible, fresh moving air is the enemy of mould! Clean regularly: vacuum and dust, change linens Dehumidify: if you live in a humid climate, or your home has been diagnosed as damp, a dehumidifier will help to reduce the moisture build up that mould loves Indoor plants: plants naturally remove toxins from the air, and of course they also produce oxygen so they will make a big improvement on the quality of the air in your home (or workplace) Use essential oils: NB. definitely do not use artificial air fresheners – they are literally adding toxins into your surroundings by masking unpleasant smells with chemicals. Tea tree oil is anti-fungal and has a beautiful fresh aroma, it is literally
In September, we are so lucky today to be able to celebrate both the Spring Equinox, which occurs on Saturday 22nd, and the September full moon, which occurs on Monday 24th, and sits in the sign of Aries. Spring Equinox We have two points in the year where the length of the day and the night are equal – one in autumn and one in spring. This is because at these points Mother Earth lies flat in her orbit of the sun, so neither the north, nor the south pole are tilted away from the sun, allowing access to equal amounts of life giving solar energy everywhere on our planet. From this point forward, here in the southern hemisphere, we gradually get more and more daylight until summer solstice, in the second half of December. From an energetic point of view, this position in the astrological calendar is a very important celebration of the return of the force of life itself, after the cold, dark, dormant winter period. It is at this point that light overpowers dark – which is a forceful archetypal concept in most cultures, and definitely in ours. We need light to survive! Spring brings with it is the opportunity for new beginnings. New Beginnings This year we have also had heavy astrological energy over winter with 3 eclipses and multiple retrogrades – meaning that planets and
Our sense of smell is an amazing thing because aromas can have such an effect on our emotions. A smell can remind you of something and put you in a good or a bad mood as a result. An aroma can help you to relax, can wake you up or put a smile on your face. Sensing a smell results from chemicals in the air around you stimulating your nervous system. Therefore, we are talking here about Surroundings which is one of the aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing. The human smelling sense can detect more than 10K different aromas! Fragrance, Health & Wellbeing Fragrances are a very important sensory stimulant, which can affect our wellbeing on all levels – spiritual, emotional, mental and also physical (remember the last time an unpleasant smell made you feel physically sick?) As a Wellbeing Practitioner who works with Essential Oils every day I rely on the effect of aroma to help improve outcomes for my clients both in their sessions with me and when they go back to their everyday lives. Indeed it is the appeal of a fragrance being impactful on our environment and our wellbeing that has created a multi-billion dollar global candle industry. With all the retailers reminding us that Christmas is just around the corner I thought it was a good time to talk about the potential hazards of fragranced candles and what
