Gratitude in Difficult Times

Green Leaves Retreat

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

Sacred Places in Sacred Spaces

Green Leaves Retreat - Sacred Places in Sacred Spaces

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.

Main Street in Abadiania

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 🙏🙏”

Flower on the path to the sacred waterfall

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!

Hints of Winter

Hints of Winter
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!
Love You
