AOL Bulletin – 8th July 2015 – Rewire Your Brain Through Happiness

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind us to think happy thoughts.

FYI – You Can Do It – It is Easy


Spirit Science ThoughtsHow you can empower yourself to live in the moment by controlling your thoughts and emotions, and guiding yourself the way that you want to be guided, rather than allowing modern society to tell you how to feel and what to think.
(This is a wonderful, short enlightening 12 minute video).

At the end there is a brief comment on the work of researcher Masaru Emoto, an amazing being who has been diving deep into what it means to understand Water.

Just as you create your own reality, we are also co-creating our realities together. We are a collective! As a community, a city, a country, and a species, we decide where we want to go and how we want to flow. It is up to us to decide what happens next in the epic tale that is the human race, but change has to start from an individual level.  Click here to view


This is what  happens to our brain when we experience happiness. 

by Dr. Marianne Pochelli ND – Guest Writer for Wake Up World. 

Marianna PochelliToo much research has been devoted to the science of stress, depression and the connection to disease and not enough to the biology of joy.  If a greater emphasis was placed on why we don’t go to doctors when we are feeling optimistic, happy and joyful, there would be less value and importance placed on the emotional states that coincidentally generate more money for those manufacturing medication.  There are many ways to experience pleasure in our brains and happiness might be the one emotion that prevents and reverses the cascade of cellular events that lead to disease.  To read more click here.

 LET GO:  A Short Guided Meditation by Lori Granger

Guided MeditationAs it is impossible to experience happiness while we hang onto our thoughts and stories; stories of past hurts, resentments and anger and frustration, we have chosen this 14 minutes meditation that will really help you not only to relax but to let go of these thoughts.  You will feel them drift away as you listen.    Make a decision to do this each day and see the difference in your energy, your body and mind.

Find Your Path – Find Your Purpose

Kathleen Goodwin  KATHLEEN GOODWIN

 What is my Life’s Path? What is my purpose? Why am I here?

 These are the questions that we all ask ourselves.

 Know that your life’s plan is birthed in love and founded on wisdom.
In the planning room you set your Life’s Mission, decide on your Life’s Gifts to achieve your major and minor goals in this life.

As part of your Life’s plan to complete your life’s mission, other souls volunteer to participate in your life, assisting you on your life’s path.

Therefore you have other souls coming into your life playing out a plethora of roles, be it your family members, close friends, acquaintances, work colleagues, enemies. They have all volunteered to help you learn lessons to achieve the best outcomes for you this life.

In return you have agreed to help these same souls with their journey in varying degrees.

In the soul planning room, souls seal their devotion of their promises to each other by melding at the 3rd eye.

What is your Life’s Contract?
There are many experiences we have agreed to. Some examples are …

LOVE – such as loss, broken heart, betrayal, etc.
COMPASSION – for yourself, friends, family, animals, mother earth, etc.
COURAGE – to survive in very difficult situations.

These are but a few so come along to find out more about what you are here for. Kathleen will also help you to realise just how much you have achieved to this point in your life.

With Rosemary Butterworth

You know the old saying….’want to make God laugh just tell Him your plans‘.  Well, it was Monday morning and we were all set for Gerry Crow’s presentation when Gerry rang in to say she was too ill to come.  We sent Gerry some healing energy and then had to organise a talk for that night.  Another saying goes something like…don’t panic unless it is organised.  So I resorted to breathing.  Taking long deep breaths and then calling Warren and Peggy to come over so we could meditate and ask the Universe/Angels/Ascended Masters what would be for the highest good of everyone there, to present.

Being clairaudient, I put forward what I was told which was to present another ‘section’ of the Bridge across to the 5th dimension.  The Masters reminded me that we only move forward when we are present.  So Warren came up with  5 THINGS TO HELP YOU STAY PRESENT

1. NOTICE – Feelings and Thoughts

2. BREATHE – Consciously, long deep breaths into the abdomen.  For energy = short,hard exhals ‘HA’  at least 6 times.  Relax = long, soft exhale ‘AH’.

3. THOUGHTS – Stay present, focused with what you are doing.  Practice being present as a musician does with his instrument or an athelete, his sport.

4.  MEDITATION – Get into the zone.  Just keep your focus on one thing when the mind wanders, bring it back.

5.  VIBRATIONAL SUPPORT – Julia from Inner Tranquillity on the night used Soul Colour and sprayed people with Gold and also found what individual colour would support them during the week.  Blessed  Shungite crystals raised the water vibration incredibly.  Remembering that our bodies are approximately 70% water you can imagine how helpful it is to drink water that has been infused by a Shungite crystal.  If our vibration is high, our thoughts will be positive.  We have a list going for all those who would like a Shungite crystal – they range from $8 – $10 dollars.  If you would like one – send us an email.

And so the evening began.  I took them to the 5th dimension in a meditation and they shared their wonderful experiences.

It was very fascinating for me to walk amongst everyone.   Being clairvoyant I enjoy using my third eye and could offer help where an energy adjustment was needed such as opening the chakras and getting their energy to flow through their body.  I saw Judith’s third eye, just beginning to open.  It looked like a rose bud and I could tell that it was only a matter of time and it would be in full bloom.  When I told her what I could see, it was validation for what she had been told and what was taking place in her life.  Behind Jenny I saw a beautiful angel and was able to remind her to work daily with her angels and ask for their assistance, actually it was a prompting for everyone because we don’t have to ‘do anything’.  We are at a stage where actions can be performed ‘through’ us – not by us.  It is a very relaxing way to live.  This is being in the zone.  This is walking the bridge to the 5th dimension.

On the 20th July I will be back presenting another section of the Bridge to the 5th Dimension with the help of Warren, Peggy and Julia.

Next Monday Night, following Kathleen wonderful presentation on What Is Your Life’s Purpose, Why Are You Here, Julia will be there again to  find the Soul Colour Vibration that will help you.

A plug for my book which I assure you I didn’t write “How to Move Forward; Leave Your Thoughts Behind”. The credit must go to Sai Baba. The Masters have called it ‘a Manual for Being Present’.  To be read daily. On the 20th July it will be available at a special price of $15 or if you have a kindle you can purchase it from Amazon for $9.95.


Thought Of The Week

CofL Full MoonIt is not about getting from here to there, it is about getting from here to here. (A reminder – have you practised today being present) …Lama Surya Das. Words of Wisdom.

Affirmation – say daily, feel it, believe it…

Freedom“I use my life as a chance to learn.  I dance through life lightly and joyfully.”  ..Kalina Raphael Rose.


Hummingbird-CakeHere is a feel good cake – just to put a smile on your lips.  It is Teresa Cutter’s version of a Hummingbird Cake and it is healthy.


Here is my healthy version of a Humming bird cake that’s bursting with real fruit goodness !  It’s loaded with fresh chunks of sunny pineapple and banana and scented with orange, honey and vanilla bean, capturing the magical essence of a tropical paradise by the ocean.  It’s vitally important you use ripe banana and sweet, fresh pineapples when making this cake to achieve the best results and produce a glorious cake. Take your time and make the cake the night before you need to serve it, as this will give the cake time to settle and cool properly in the refrigerator. Make the frosting on the day of serving and be generous when spreading over the cake. For those who prefer a dairy free frosting, you can use fresh whipped coconut cream or a lush coconut yoghurt.

Past student testimonial:

Dreaming the tarot was by far the most memorable course I have ever had the privilege of experiencing. This course worked on levels that far surpassed any form of expectation. To Dream the Tarot was like meeting each of the Major Arcana in person and finding where they sat within me –it awakened the memory of pure soul connection. I was able to feel, see and breathe the Tarot. With deep gratitude’ Crystal Isaac
