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!

With globolization, our cultural boundaries have broadened. We”ve gained insight, become more conscious of global unity, and we are generally more accepting and better able to communicate with one another. But, sometimes communication can be fickle. Just when you think you’ve gotten your point across, sitting before you is a steak instead of a herbal camomile infusion! How could the message have been so lost in translation?
We often hear espoused “we are one” but is this simply a nice concept or are we really making advances in becoming a one world nation , a “ we are one world”?
The universal language of Esperanto, a universal language is testimony to our desire to unite via communication. It seemed like a brilliant idea.After its inception in the late 1800s we then saw a Esperanto resurge in the 70s and 80s. Today however, besides the die hard “Esperanties” who attend yearly gatherings,the universal language of Esperanto doesn’t really appear to have taken off.
Then we had the introduction of the Euro currency. Besides what was perceived as the economic benefits, the Euro is once again our testimony to our desire and attempts at being and feeling connected and unified.
While technology continues to be at the forefront of bringing us together-(think sype , video chats, sms, emails, Instagram Snap Chat etcetera…) we have been introduced to a “ technological currency,” the Bitcoin. This is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system which was created to assist us in our individual and global purchase transactions. It is our digital currency designed to accompany us into the cyber world! So, is Bitcoin providing us with that sense of being closer together? Have we achieved the “ we are one “ catch cry?
Besides technology , Bitcoin, Esperanto, The Euro ,what the majority of us humans have in common is the awareness that we live in a world with war, violence, famine and the knowing that we need to perform a 360 turn to avoid spiralling down and imploding.This raised consciousness has created a steady move towards self elevation -ourselves and our worlds .
We are one ! Why ? Because we are all Spirits inhabiting a human body form.And although there have been great advances for global unification via currency, language and technology, the biggest advances have come with our raised consciousness.
The more we get in touch with our spirits the more we recognise the spirit in others. It is then we experience that there is no gender, race,class or any other human made divisions. We begin to focus on similarities not differences. At this point in the journey, our spiritual work elevates us and in turn, we elevate and illuminate others and the world around us. We are one! Getting there is the journey!

So how do we learn from our mistakes? Firstly, we have to accept that we make mistakes and that we’ll make future mistakes.
Our depth and wisdom is a direct consequence of our past mistakes and our learnings. Without mistakes there is no learning and without learning there will be no progress.
Without mistakes there is no learning and without learning there will be no progress.
Often we’ve been knocked to the ground, suffered deeply, had our hearts broken, experienced great disappointment or simply just not arrived to where we wanted to go but hellooooo its precisely those mistakes, failings, and events, that we hadn’t planned for, those mistakes or failings which we had never anticipated which created the person we are today!
Flexibility is important. If we expect that life’s experiences and events should conform strictly to plan we are setting ourselves up for hardships.
Having short-term as well as long-term goals that are flexible enables us to go with the flow, roll with the punches so we may recover quickly with “wow!! what did I learn from that?” This attitude allows us to move towards evolution and the next non-scripted life event. Remember, an attitude of learning keeps us in good stead with life.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move ahead and look towards a future where mistakes or misfortunes are seen for what they are – learnings. Living with this attitude frees us up for a joyful life!
As I sit here chilling out and sipping on my extra hot aromatic tea, I look out at the lush greenery. The Rosellas are playing in the trees and the cockatoos are squawking and fluttering. I take a deep s-l-o-w breath and realise how lucky I am.
Both my parents are alive and although my mum is considerably younger than my dad, today my dad is turning 94! Yes seriously!
So what’s the secret to longevity? I’ve conducted research on centenarians and although my dad is not quite a centenarian, 94 is pretty well up there!
Not only is dad fortunate to have mum by his side but he’s also lucky that his social circle is predominantly made up of his siblings. His sisters and brothers range in age from their early eighties to early 90s! They have wonderful get-togethers with much laughter and storytelling of days gone by!
So what are some of the common denominators between those who live to a ripe old age?
Research highlights the following:
Have good friends
Be active both physically and mentally
Be aware of what you consume and the amount you consume. Do not eat fatty, sugared or processed foods.
Know what you are exposing yourself to – television, music, people, newspapers and so on have a positive or negative effect on you.
Maintain Self-discipline to implement and reinforce the points above
Have a life purpose
Older people recognise the importance of going with the flow and not engaging in negativity. It’s about enjoyment, in short, it’s about LOVE.
To love life, love your network of family and friends, love your work, love being active, love,love, love…..when you truly love you gain happiness, meaning, joy, abundance and nourishment.
And so now that we have the secret recipe for a long and happy life let’s get to it!
Meanwhile, Green Leaves Retreat is here for you so that you too may lead a long, loving and happy life. Find your passion, find your life purpose, your balance, clarity, gain nourishment, and be re-energised! Now is the time to check out our Services page!
