I’ve always had pets and I couldn’t imagine life without them. To date I’ve shared my life with dogs,cats,rats,birds,fish,chickens,a ferret,a lizard,a Joey and for a while I also had pet ants and a couple of big bull ants,Larry and Carrie.
Animals have an amazing intuition and are capable of seeing and hearing things which elude me. Often when I’ve come out of meditation Zac my white fluffy Schnoodle, will intently get up and suddenly follow someone or something.At other times, he sitswhile his fixated eyes dart around my body.His head moves up and down following what I cant see.
Initially curious I decided to take photos and sure enough there they were! Orbs orbs and more orbs! The more pics I took the more I understood that these orbs had been travelling around me. Wow! Not only did Zac’s eyes intently follow “them’ round the room but Zac was also engaging in comunication.He”d let out a llittle sigh or bark as he playfully ran playing with an invisible someone or something. Suddenly Zac would lower his back legs and was ready for a ball throw. At these times its not been unusual to watch him lick the “ air” for many minutes at a time as though he’s licking someone’s hand!
Pets carry with them a lot of positive energy and are always up for some fun and games. If your household energy is a bit stagnant or ungrounded, a pet may well be the answer but remember, pets deserve to always be appreciated and treated with the utmost respect, after all,they are our Spirit Guides and Teachers.
Below is a list of some of
the life lessons pets and animals teach us:
5.importance of regular exercise
6.Accepting yourself as you are
7.Importance of sleep
8.Importance of play
10.importance of Loyalty & trust
Having had pets my entire life I can say with absolute confidence that animals and pets are gifts sent from the heavens.They are here to share,bless and embellish our journeys.As our Guides and Teachers they are on earth to teach us how to become better human beings.
Much love love love to all the pets and animals!

Sharing the Journey
I beseech you, I call upon you to send me clarity, to help me understand the ways of the world via the heart. I say via the heart because I know that my thoughts get in the way. I know that these thoughts are contaminated by beliefs wishes and other forms of indoctrination which I have learnt.
I ask to feel the love which I know exists all around me. If my heart was more open to receiving this love , I would be able to access it and thereby fill the void. I know that LOVE is sustaining and enables me to grow and flourish.
I pray that anxiety and stress does not control me and that my emotion is predominantly one of peace and love. For I know that anxiety and stress is an unnecessary block and a heavy weight. It not only negatively impacts on my perceptions and behaviours but also manifests as dis -ease and pain within my physical body.
I pray that I maintain focus on what is important and that this focus will assist me to reach my highest potential here on planet Earth..
I pray that my spiritual work raises my vibrational frequency and attracts to me “like minded” souls. Souls that are nourishing and healing beings of light so that together we become a huge beacon Light. Together we are able to illuminate and support each other while assisting and illuminating all those with whom we come into contact.
Please inform me when to expand and to contract. When I contract I do so because I am needing spiritual maintenance and only after working on myself am I able to step forth and expand, offering myself as a conduit for the healing of others.
May I be conscious of inhaling and exhaling the breath of the Divine. Let me be reminded that we are constantly supported on our light journey because we alike you are light.
Much love to the spirits and beings who presented themselves for this prayer manifestation.
So here we are on planet Earth . We are all on different journeys, we are all unique.We have our own experiences,thoughts,beliefs and ways of seeing. We are also at different stages on our life path and yet,we are all here together and we are all learning. At this point in time, some of us are learning patience, other’s kindness, some of us are learning to be more compassionate while others are gaining insight. Perhaps you’re learning discipline or self love.At this moment what are you learning? What obstacles are you experiencing or do you see?
We need obstacles.Obstacles are vehicles for learning and present us with the gift of Spiritual evolution. Our Spiritual evolution provides our way forward and prepares us for our future. Every obstacle and all difficulty therefore is an opportunity to empower us. If however we do not comprehend this opportunity or if we do not learn from this experience, the universe will ensure that our learning experience is repeated.
Model yourself on those you admire. Their success exists because it can be achieved. Who do you admire? How does this person inspire you? What beliefs do you think they have about themselves and about the world ? What sort of hopes might they have and what sort of actions do they undertake?
You are a being of endless possibilities and potentials. Self reflect, learn meditate,help and love yourself, help and love others,try to be understanding. By doing so, you will discover your infinite potential and possibilities.
As you travel along the road of life,different life experiences will offer discoveries and each discovery offers you a life purpose . You too can live in hope and joy and make the world a better place.Remember, as long as you do your spiritual work, you will always evolve and know you are never alone.
So your life purpose? Your life purpose is to Love yourself, Love others and leave the world in a better shape than the way you found it. This can be achieved by Spiritual development.
Now, go, enjoy the journey :-))

I love being a tourist at home. I don’t have to pack my bags, I don’t have to think about the exchange rate ,I don’t have to grapple with any taxi drivers or foreign tongues.I can be totally independent and drive myself anywhere or catch any form of public transport all without a hitch.
As a local tourist its wonderful to aimlessly walk-around baggage free and its always so exciting discovering new coffee shops. Unlike holidays away from home,I can be accompanied by my trusty companion Zac ! See image below 🙂
Ahhh! The bliss of chilling out while reading and being entertained. Nature walks, caves to explore, rocks to climb and platforms to view out standings scenery’s. Or perhaps it’s a day to hang out by the beach and listen to the waves crash on the shore while contemplating life. This scenario can quite easily be followed by a relaxing massage. Why not complete the evening with fish and chips? No one wants to cook dinner when their on holidays.
On the Central Coast we really and truly are spoilt for choice and everything is so close! One moment we’re’ on a country drive looking at scarecrows, the next we stand by a lake. Back in the car and 20 minutes on wards we’re watching a movie! After the movie we decide a little walk by the waterfall would be a perfect ending to a lovely day!
Like all tourists ,if you haven’t done any prior research and you”re stuck on what to do, you can always consult a tourist information Centre !
Tourist Centres have a comprehensive list of the latest “what’s on” and happenings in the local and extended environs. From markets, shopping villages, art Galleries, Live entertainment, scenic drives, hotels,mountains,Beaches, Lakes, bushwalks, theatre, places to eat and Gardens to visit. “But wait there’s more…..
Your guide to the central coast, formally the Central Coast imag is edited by the fabulous Klara Kaye. Packed with up-to-date events and deals.Your Guide Central Coast showcases some of the gems accessible to us “tourists” Whether it be hot shopping locations,Wednesdays Ladies night with free wines or free crafted beer tastings, birthday sales or restaurant reviews. If you’re serious about a good holiday, this little mag is a must have!
Ahhhh I’m tuckered ! After seeing an exhibition at the local library, and going for a drive up north, checking some cute seaside villages and driving through some amazing national parks Id have to sayI’ve had a very very enjoyable holiday today.
Life is for living and every day is a holiday. Keep your airfare farein your pockets and simply pack the right attitude. It’s fail safe!
Enjoy, I know you will.

Gratitude enables us to focus on the positive and in return the positives around us are magnified. The more grateful we are the more things we find to be grateful about. But what if I’m going through a hard time, does that mean I’m further drawing negatives towards myself?
How does one maintain and optimistic outlook and one of gratitude when things just don’t seem to be going right? In the midst of a heartbreak, illness or disaster we can be very reluctant to say “ oh yes, thank you for this serious illness” or Thank you for my broken leg, or the loss of my job, or a car breakdown or a broken friendship….
In times of difficulty it can be very hard and some may say impossible to see the value of the our circumstances and situation. It is through retrospect, that we look back and able to see the value of what it is that we had experienced . Perhaps an accident or illness created an enforced period which offered us time to self reflect so we could create a new life direction. It may have been that the circumstances were such that involved a family get together, creating a possibility for re unification. Or that your broken heart from a broken relationship lead you to your soul mate.
In times of need, distress, discomfort, confusion, pain, loss of clarity, unhappiness, broken heartedness, uneasiness or any other disturbance, we need to make a conscious decision to move away from our current state and decide that the time has arrived for us to get rid of our fears and troubles and to move towards the future.We need to reach out and ask for help . By doing so we move towards healing and speeding up our evolution.
Transformation is the outcome of gratefully accepting life’s curveballs.In times of difficulty when we are unlikely to be feeling grateful, it’s very important to be aware of our thoughts. It’s important to ensure that we are perceiving life from a positive view point. In situations which are beyond our control,try to see the lesson in what is occurring. A handy strategy is to place yourself in a future situation where you are looking back to the present day. Ask yourself – “What am I learning and what is the value of this experience to my life.?
As humans we experience high times and low times. At all times try and remain cool. Dont say “ this shouldn’t be happening to me “ but rather Know that everything that occurs is for your highest good. Be spiritually receptive. Don’t say “no”.Say okay let’s go!!
Remember it is via your meditation,prayer and your gratitude which leads to you living your highest life.
I love you and am on earth for you

There are many sacred places on planet earth. Some with biblical significance such as Jerusalem or Lourdes in France. Saudi Arabia has Mecca, while The Ganges river and the Mahabodhi Temple are Sacred in India. Australia has The Rock – Uluru in Kata Tjuta National Park and Egypt has Mt Sinai. This list, alike the list of miracles which occur in Brazil,are endless.
In a little village called Abadiânia in Brazil resides what some call the largest healing centre on planet Earth. Here the celebrated healing medium, John of God, has dedicated his life.
As a healing medium, John Of God offers his body as a conduit for healing and miracles. Does this mean that everybody who comes to Abadiania heals? No, it does however mean that many of those who come to heal although perhaps not cured, say they experience an overwhelming sense of inner peace and self -acceptance. These seekers say these characteristics were absent prior to coming to Abadiânia, to the Casa de Dom Inacio de Loyola.
Alicia Lyford is one of those seekers. Alicia was cured of stage four ovarian cancer. As such she has now become an Abadiania guide. Alicia shares some of her experiences, and miracles.
“Three weeks before I arrived here, there was a lady who needed an urgent liver transplant, that liver transplant was clearly needed a lot more urgently than anticipated. Now this beautiful lady goes to bed and wakes in the morning to find her shirt has a lot of blood on it 😱
She lifts up her shirt and underneath there is scarring, it is very clear an operation has occurred. She then is confused and goes to the entity to ask what has happened.
The entity proceeds to tell this lady that her liver transplant was needed straight away. He then tells her the name and age of her nephew who had recently passed away. He explained that her nephew had donated his liver, from the spirit world.
Yes you did read that correctly…..a liver transplant from the other side.
This beautiful woman is now completely healed 🙏
How is this possible and how can something like this occur in your room as you’re sleeping? I can’t answer that, all I can say is that it can and how incredible is that!!!
I have been speaking to some of my beautiful friends who are Casa guides, they speak of healings that have occurred to people in their groups.
One lady woke up frantic as she thought her contacts had gone behind her eyes. Medical assistance was sought, however, there were no contacts behind her eyes and without her contacts she could barely see……and now? Yes you guessed it, she can see completely fine 😇
Another lady in my dear friends group had breast cancer that she was unaware of!!! She woke one morning to find scars around her breast and her breast was very inflamed. She was taken to the entity to ask what had happened. He explained she had breast cancer and that it had now been removed. A medical examination showed that an operation had been performed. Her life was saved without her even realising she was sick 🙏
Casa is so incredible that no words will ever truly be able to describe this phenomenal and powerful healing sanctuary.
May these stories help you and others you may know, to trust, to have faith and to realise there is something so much greater than us and that miracles do truly occur. So no matter what you are going through, when you are feeling lost, alone or desperately needing help, read this again and remember to always remain in faith, love and gratitude. Remember you are never alone and the spirit world is always there to support you 🙏🙏”
I’m writing to you here from Abadiânia in Brazil. I’ve just returned from the sacred waterfall. I’m feeling Light and overflowing with peace and Life Purpose.
My first visit to Abadiania was 8 years ago. It was then that Spirit instructed me to refocus my attention from Teaching and Counselling and to redirect my energies into working as a Healing Medium. Consequently I founded The House of Light, a Spiritual and Healing Centre in Sydney. 2 years ago after another visit to Abadiania and more profound Spiritual evolution, I once again followed thru with the Spirits and Entities of Lights directive. I was instructed to go to the Central Coast, to Wyoming and open a Retreat. I have done so. The outcome is Green Leaves Retreat, the Centre for Personal and Spiritual Change.
Since my first visit to Abadiania, the good Spirits, beings of Light, Entities, Energies, Angels and Saints have accompanied me on my life journey. They are constantly with me. They are always present and ready to assist all who seek. I am humbled and honoured to be of service.
Give yourself a chance! Come nourish your Spirit, your Soul. Gain clarity, peace, joy, abundance and life purpose. At Green Leaves Retreat we understand the journey and welcome you with open arms!
I love you and look forward to being of service…
Much love, gratitude and light, from me who’s back in Wyoming!

We all have thoughts and wise use of our thoughst can mean the difference between a happy or bad day.In fact, our thoughts are so powerful that they dictate whether or not we lead a fulfilled and content life!
Ourselves and everything around us is made of energy and, although many things appear solid, at a deeper level all things are made of minute particles which when broken down are just pure energy. Ourselves and all within and around us form part of this greater energyfield.
All energy vibrates at different speeds with different qualities anddensities.For example thought is a relatively fine light form of energy and is easy and quick to change whereas matter is relatively dense compact energy and therefore slower to move and change.
To create, we first have the thought then we have it’s manifestation. For example , when you want a vegemite sandwich you have the image and then off you go to create the sandwich. It is the creation of the thought which magnetises and guides your physical energy to manifest your desire on the physical plane.
Simply maintaining a thought in your mind will attract and create on the physical plane. This is a universal law and principal best explained as “as you sow, so you shall reap” This means that our energy flows towards what we think about and whatever your energy flows towards that’s what grows.
Healthy or unhealthy, whether your energy is flowing towards what’s good or bad for you, your energy does not discriminate -your energy simply follows the law of creating -that is the image which is created by you -and held in your mind.
With the knowledge that our thoughts magnetise particular outcomes it is therefore imperative to assess and re-evaluate our thoughts regularly. Are my thoughts positive? Do I have a healthy belief system? Are the perceptions I have of myself useful to me in my daily life?
To have a profound understanding of this energetic law is akin to holding the golden key to a life of liberation and manifestation. You have it! You have the power. Use it wisely!
We are living in exciting times, in a time where we together make up the New Age.
We are on adventure of personal and Spiritual learning and discovery. Every day on planet Earth ourselves and others are awakening. Everyday we gain more knowledge, understanding realisations and experiences.
Together and one by one we are realising that there is more to life than we can see, there is more to life than the third dimension.
Now we are comprehending that we are no longer limited by what we think but rather that it is via our feelings that joy, harmony and progress become possible. We are also beginning to see that it is through the raising of our vibrations which leads to our improved lives and positively impacts upon the lives of others.
Regardless of whether we use candles, incense, meditation, body work, drums, pendulums, essential oils, sound, tarot, or any other tools, what matters is that we are achieving higher understanding and wisdom. What matters is that we are transcending our limitations and not only improving our lives but contributing towards the greater whole on planet earth and beyond.
There are many ways of raising our vibration or energy frequency.
Be aware of your thoughts ( focus on the positive)
Eat whole foods
Love yourself and others
By walking together and helping one another, we raise the universal vibration and amplify our light. Enjoy!
There is no relationship greater than the relationship you have with yourself and with spirit.
When we come to recognise we are spirit we commence our alignment. When we are aligned, our relationships change.Everything improves. Our relationship with ourselves,our bodies
money, partner, family friends , people we work with, our interactions in the world transform.
As we’ve been so concerned about pleasing others and what they think, we have come to believe that to adopt our own thoughts and feelings is selfish.
Often we have lost sight of our way,our own guidance and with misery in our hearts we realise we have finally lost ourselves.Why? Because we have become further and further separated from who we truely are.
Great!! So now what?
Firstly we need to become aware that controlling of others or of external conditions is not the key to feeling better.Inevitably trying to change others instead of controlling our thoughts creates confusion, distortion and unnecessary suffering.This premise for change is fundamentally flawed.
Stick with me :-)) It’s not about changing circumstances so that your observation of them would make you feel good but rather, to self control the direction of your perception and thoughts. So, what exactly does that mean? It means changing ourselves.
When we change ourselves everything changes with us. This is the law of the universe.
Improving ourselves is intricately intwined with self love. To many of us,the theory of Self Love sounds right and perfect however how do we go about putting self-love into practice? Self Love is more than having the occasional manicure and pedicure, self-love is directly connected with nourishing and nurturing our soul..
Here at Green Leaves Retreat, we specialise in nourishing and nurturing souls.How? We guide towards self-love. In so doing, we contribute towards positive changes not only for the individuals but towards lighting up the greater whole.
I suppose there’s not that many hints given that winter is well and truely here but, it’s these sunny days which keep me feeling that we haven’t quiet arrived.
I’m loving the crisp air and that need to bring my shoulders in closer as my hands plunge deeper into my pockets.
Inhaling the cool air there’s that tingling chill which makes my eyes water and when I exhale, I love looking at my misty breath. As a child, with each “out breath”, Id make believe I was an adult smoking a cigarette. At other times I’d play chasing with my brother and sister and we’d take turns at being the fire breathing dragon.Today, watching the exhaled condensation Is a simple thrill, and one which reminds me that I’m well and truely alive !
I come up to this mountain to forest bathe. This intimate communion with nature always rebalances and recharges me. It’s a reminder that all’s well in my world.
As I continue to Inhale and exhale I notice the warm sun rays kissing my back and highlighting the lush green surrounds.This is accompanied by a freshness .Im transfixed as a watch the slow rolling mist blanketing everything. I now stand in a dreamy and surreal landscape.
The rain hasent quiet settled in and it’s almost like weve been given little reminders that all of nature is slowing down, slowly coming to a halt cocooning itself ready to snuggle up to nurture and replenish.
A chorus of kookaburras start laughing and the plants seem happy and content as they bob up and down in the slight breeze.
With the change of season so comes the need for wardrobe re arrangement. All the summer clothing which is easily accessible on the bottom of the wardrobe has to be moved up to make room for the winter clothes.
With this re arranging I’m already anticipating what I’m going to find! I know I’m going to discover “ lots of clothing. Oh I forgot about this ! , “oh what was I thinking when I brought that? Oh look this dress still has its labels! I don’t think I’ll ever wear this one ! Wow this was such a bargain, how could I have resisted? “ Why did I buy this, its huge or why did I buy this one, it’s far too small?”
Preparing for winter means there are many jobs. I’ll need a number of boxes to get the clothes organised then, Ill have to buy supplies of fire wood for the furnace oh wait, oh no! I’ll also need to replace the broken glass in the furnace door! Guess I’ll need to research where I can buy that!
In one of the healing sessions, we were deep in meditation when suddenly there was a sharp crunch followed by a whipping sound. When the client left I discovered a huge crack across the furnace door. Yes, releasing of energy can do this . It was reminencent of a session I had in Sydney where I was left with billions and billions of tiny shards of glass from a once present glass table. Well at least this time I wont have to literally clean it up in shovel fulls !!
Ok so, back to the wardrobe re arrangement. Nows the time to make some resolutions .
I promise to buy only clothes that fit and I promise I will wear them within the first few months of purchase.
And Im going to make a super dupper special note to myself that once that new glass door goes into the furnace I will encircle the furnace with an invisible shatter proof ring of protection.
Now I’m off to organise and donate those beautiful new clothes which Ive packed away in those boxes . I always feel so good when I give to Charity. Dont you?
Book a visit so we can indulge in a big steamy mug of coco and watch the logs burn!
