giant petrelVisiting Hagley Park this week for a catch-up girly lunch, bought back a wonderful memory involving a Southern Giant Petrel.

Now this all happened 10 years ago, I had taken Poppy into the city during the weekend. And we had parked at Hagley Park, walked through the grounds to the museum, and then visited the Art Gallery. We came back via the Arts Centre hoping to get something yummy to drink and eat as we were feeling pretty hungry by this time, everything was shut. And at Hagley Park the cafes were also shut.

We stopped at the pond and there was a large bird hanging around the pond with an unusual looking beak, and I asked the bird

‘What’s up with your beak?’

and the bird replied back ‘I am a Petrel, and my beak is supposed to look like this’

‘Oh, okay, never seen a bird like you before. Where are you from?’

‘Antarctic, I have flown a long way, and resting. I need some food. Go get me some food’

‘We tried to get some food for ourselves and everything close by that sells food  is shut. We will have to go for a drive to get you some food and we might be awhile. Don’t leave we will be back’

‘You don’t have to go far if you walk down that path, it will lead you to a large tree by the glasshouses, and there is food waiting in the tree for me, go fetch it.’

‘Why don’t you go get the food yourself?’

‘Don’t want to, too many people to encounter and I am quite comfortable resting by the pond.’

‘There are a lot of trees in the park.’

‘You will know what tree it is, it is quite distinctive looking, and children like climbing the tree, it has quite a distinctive fork in the branches, and the food has been left in the fork’.

Mmm maybe we would be going on a wild goose chase to try and find the tree, We meandered off down the path and lol and behold yip there was the tree, and yip someone had left their lunch in the fork in the tree. We went back to the pond…

‘Are you allowed to eat this sort of food?’

‘Can do on occasions, the food won’t harm me,  the food will fuel me and that’s what I need at the moment and then I can get on my way, I’ve got lots to do, and it has been nice to meet you, I just stopped by to say hello to you, and thought you could do me a favour also’.

22nd January saw me heading towards Tauranga, catching an early morning flight to Auckland – I was born and raised in Auckland and always great to fly into ‘my old hometown’, and then another flight onto Tauranga. Window seats on both flights, and capturing the spectacular aerial scenery all the way.

Christine & Di were hosting the Tauranga Workshops.

Workshops were held at Christine’s amazing country home, and I stayed with Di and family. Christine & Di are amazing hostesses – Christine provided the workshop attendees with yummy homebaking throughout the workshops, and Di opened up her home to me in a very special way.

Feet now on Tauranga soil. Di picked me up from the airport and we had couple of quick stops for morning tea &  supermarket shopping for goodies for the workshops. The quick stop at Countdown seemed to take twice as long to navigate around a ‘different supermarket’. Evening time Di taxied me off to Tai Chi, and it was brilliant, somehow I managed to tangle up my arms/hands & legs/feet in all the incorrect positions. We arrived back from Tai Chi to greet Andrea, Fergus & Phoebe who had came to spend the next 4 days with us also – bliss!!!

Saturday Animal Communication & Energy Healing Workshop. With all attendee’s eyes on me, I introduced some of the attendees to their first sessions of communicating with animals, some of the attendees had attended previous workshops with me, and some attendees were implementing animal communication in their professional life in working with animals…. the morning went really fast.

After lunch, we spent some quiet down time time being creative and creating Crystal Essences Vibrational Blends. And then more animal communication sessions, with people either communicating with animals OR some attendees I gave direction to on how to assess the animal’s Akashic Records or even looking at their own Akashic Records and their beloved animal companion’s Akashic Records to see why their journey together.  Then a bit of wind down time after the communication sessions, and creating of energy pendulums that would be used during Sunday. Also plenty of sharing happening, insights shared, and questions asked. After closing Saturday’s workshop Jilly & Amy gave us a demonstration on Kangan Water. Christine had invited all of us  (& families) to come for a BBQ dinner at her home, so it was a great way to finish a special day.

Sunday morning, dogs and humans gathered outside on Christine’s covered balcony & Lawn, and we discussed energy fields, chakras, energy blockages & communicating in person with an animal – Saturday’s workshop we had communicated we had mainly communicated remotely except with some of the dogs that had come along for the day, and a herd of cows. For the dogs that were keeping us company on Sunday there was hands on healing sessions and communication sessions, whatever was appropriate for the animals and the communicator/healer, sometimes both healing and communicating at the same time.

To finish off the morning session as a group we went to hang out with Wizard horse, and plenty of magic happened. I haven’t quite got words to explain it all. Wizard is HUGE in size, in heart, and in giving. The first time I met Wizard in person was Nov 2014, and he shared back then that he was a healing horse, since my first encounter with Wizard people have been turning up for healings with Wizard and many miracles have taken place, also animals have come to meet Wizard for healings, and even a child who is highly allergic to horses didn’t have a physical reaction to him.

Wizard gently walked amongst us humans, and he would stop at an individual person, pause touch the person’s body and nuzzle away or lick away, Wizard was constantly sharing healing energy where it was needed to go. At times  he would energetically direct the energy deeper and other times the energy would be circulating around the human energy field’s (aura) in a very special way. Places he would rest at were where the attendees mentioned they had been having trouble with their own body – incredibly special moments were shared, very surreal, very peaceful and incredibly magical. When Wizard came to Di there was no touching and they both lowered their heads, and were caught in the NOW of just being in each other’s company and healing exchanged between both of them. After our time with Wizard, some people refused to join us for lunch at Nourish Café as they just wanted to be sitting quietly with Wizard chatting to him, and enjoying his fine company, they had no need to be anywhere other than were they were, caught in the moment of NOW,

After lunch we did some journey work for the attendees (journey work is relating to messages for ourselves, or being aware of who we are or meeting spiritual guidance team; we also had sessions for this during Saturday’s workshop). Then it was time for more  animal communication sessions, and at the end of the day we bottled up the Crystal Vibrational Essences. Workshops are a gathering of souls to spend quality time together, to be part of each other’s journey, and  I am so thankful for the animals that were our teachers & the attendees for coming together, and for all being in their heart.  I spent a bit of time after we were packed up with one of the attendee’s cats for a communication session relating to the animal’s health & well-being but also reason for being.

Monday was rest day. Di, Andrea & myself went for a lovely walk around the lake. Then Hannelore came for morning tea with us. The rest of day was hanging out with Baxter dog, Fergus & Phoebe. Also Di gave me a Bodytalk session, and it was amazing the informaiton that came up, and the clearings that happened. We (Di, Andrea, Faye) had good intention to work on our Shining Year Life & Business 2016 journals, and yes we did some work. After dinner I had a walk around Di’s neighbourhood.

Tuesday Sacred Christed Energies Workshop. I took the group through  their own personal soul attunement with the Sacred Christed Energies, and then we spend time going through the notes on what each symbol was representative of and how to use. Before we knew it, it was lunchtime, and a quick walk down to a Cafe Paradiso, and Greg came to have lunch with us, as he had driven Victoria up from Wellington region for this workshop.  After lunch we went over a few more notes, and then everyone paired up for healings. The exchanges that were happening during the healings was mind-boggling – info coming forward – healings given but also we hadn’t touched on some of the symbols or  looked at what they represented them but they were coming forward for the attendees, which was huge validation for them, due to the attunement that happened in the morning.  After the first healing session, we looked at the rest of the workshop notes, and these were then implemented in the next pairing up for healings.  A stunningly beautiful day. And to wind up the day I supped at Christine & Graham’s home along with Andrea and Di.

Wednesday, bags all packed up – suitcase so much lighter. Mid afternoon we went via breathtaking Mount Maunganui then onto airport, where Christine caught up with us, and Christine gave me a surprise, so unexpected and there was plenty of room in my bags for handmade chocolates.  Flight back to Christchurch took longer then usual due to a very considerate pilot who went a different route to avoid turbulence. Feet were now back on Christchurch soil, and the sky is dark & raining.  XXXX

My first blog post on website. I have been blogging for a few years on facebook & sharing snippets of info, pouring my heart out, also protesting & rejecting what doesn’t hold true for me. 

When I started to think about having a regular blog page on website, it felt kind of mammoth ‘BIG’ of where to start, & then the word INSPIRATION popped in.

Inspiration is a pretty big word! Without inspiration we find it difficult to do, when we are inspired we do with more ease.

Take a minute and mind-map what Inspiration means to you – what inspires you, what makes your heart sing.  

Maybe you are not aware that you are inspiring others and this can be from something you have said or done.  

How has your presence or what you have said inspired another? Sit with that thought form for a minute and think about HOW YOU HAVE INSPIRED OTHERS JUST FROM BEING YOUR OWN UNIQUE INSPIRING SELF – I think you will be quite surprised at what you will discover!!!
