Mirror of Self Reflection

 

Picture Age creeps up on us all slowly stripping away our youth then one day we look into the mirror and the body does not seem to match the sparkle in the eyes anymore. Then we begin to look over our shoulder at our past and think I wonder what would have happened or what if I had taken this path?

The concept of there only being one life and a limited amount of time to live it is to most people like someone saying there is no Santa Claus. We simply want to believe in forever just like we wanted to believe in happily ever after as children.You may think I am advocating quitting your job and going trekking in Africa but no that is not where this is going. Living is an art in itself it is not about time management or fit as much in as I can. It is about passion, depth, vision, love and much more.I wish I could remember the taste of a meal long after I have eaten it, I wish I could see my partners face long after they have left, I wish I could feel my friends hug as she embraced me long after she had let go, I wish I could picture the one time my Mother said I love you long after she is gone, I wish I was so in tune with life, so aware, so enlightened that every moment was my greatest and I could feel it, taste it, and truly live it.I do not want to wait until someone tells me there are no more moments left I do not want to feel cheated because a Higher Power took my moments away. I want to be grateful a Higher Power gave me the moment to begin with.

As youth slips away and it will slowly I want to be able to look in the mirror and see the happiness of a life lived with depth and passion etched in my face. I want to be able to feel the touch of my lovers hand as it brushed away my tears not just remember it. But unless I am truly aware truly in the moment at the time allowing myself to feel, letting go of expectations, letting go of the need to hold something back, unless that happens all I will have is a vague memory. I want more I want an imprint so strong I can carry it with me and feel it when the moments are at an end.

My wish for you is that you may look in the mirror of self reflection long before youth has disappeared. I hope you will realize life doesn’t need to be filled up with things rather it needs to be soaked up for all it has to offer right now at this very moment. My wish for you is that you may experienced even for a second a state of total being when everything falls away and time stands still and you can taste the air you breath, feel the earth pulsate beneath your feet and hear the whisper of the Angels.

Little Angel

Barefoot and dirty, the girl just sat and watched the people go by. She never tried to speak, she never said a word. Many people passed, but never did one person stop.

Just so happens the next day I decided to go back to the park, curious if the little girl would still be there.

Right in the very spot as she was yesterday she sat perched on high, with the saddest look in her eyes. Today I was to make my own move and walk over to the little girl. As we all know a park full of strange people is not a place for young children to play.

As I began walking towards her I could see the back of the little girl’s dress indicated a deformity. I figured that was the reason the people just passed by and made no effort to help. As I got closer, the little girl slightly lowered her eyes to avoid my intent stare. I could see the shape of her back more clearly. It was grotesquely shaped in a humped over form. I smiled to let her know it was ok, I was there to help, to talk.

I sat down beside her and opened with a simple Hello. The little girl acted shocked and stammered a hi after a long stare into my eyes. I smiled and she shyly smiled back. We talked ’til darkness fell and the park was completely empty. Everyone was gone and we were alone. I asked the girl why she was so sad. The little girl looked at me and with a sad face said “Because I’m different.”

I immediately said “that you are!” and smiled. The little girl acted even sadder, she said, “I know.” “Little girl,” I said, “you remind me of an angel”. She stood to her feet, and said, “Really?”

“Yes, ma’am, you’re like a little guardian angel sent to watch over all those people walking by.” She nodded her head yes and smiled, and with that she spread her wings and said with a twinkle in her eye, “I am.” I was speechless, sure I was seeing things. She said, “And since you thought of someone other than yourself, my job here is done.”

Immediately I stood to my feet and said, “Wait, so why did no one stop to help an angel?” She looked at me and smiled, “You’re the only one who could see me, and you believe it in your heart.” And She was gone. And with that my life was changed dramatically.

So, when you think you’re all you have, remember, there is an angel always watching over you.

Everyone of your friends is an angel in their own.

Readers

I am often asked:  What exactly is a Psychic? or a Clairvoyant?  What does channeling mean?

I myself was not too sure what exactly they all meant; though knew they had something to do with Readers.  So decided to do some research and this is what I found

Psychic Medium – someone who serves as an intermediary between the living and the dead

Clairvoyant –  a person who is able to detect things that aren’t normally recognized by the senses

Channeling –  a person who conveys thoughts or energy from a source believed to be outside the person’s body or conscious mind; specifically : one who speaks for nonphysical beings or spirits

Armed with this knowledge, it should now make it easier to visit Readers.  Depending on what you feel comfortable with.

Yes, there are a lot of Readers out there, all professing to give you accurate answers.  How do you know they are ‘good’?  Or do they try to manipulate  your life?  Are  you depend on a Reader?

Entertainment, curiosity or a need to get another opinion on a complicated life issue are a few of the many reasons for consulting  Readers.

Readers often specialize in a particular field, and some are also trained as therapists or counselors with a Master of Divinity degree or a diploma in clinical social work.

  1. Think about your reasons for using a Reader. Different issues require different types of Readers.
  2. Decide what specialty you’d like your Reader to have. Specialties include palm or tarot card reading, angel readings, crossing over, intuitive readings, numerology, astrology and tea leaves.  There is a wide field here – search until you find one that resonates with you
  3. You should feel comfortable with the person you are asking to read for you.
  4. Ask friends or family for recommendations. Often the best Readers don’t advertise; instead, they obtain clients by word-of-mouth.
  5. Visit the Holistic Fayre in Bothasig, walk round and see which Reader you would resonate with.  Chat or have a short session with him/her.  If you resonate well, then make a proper booking at his/her house.

When interviewing a Reader, listen to your gut feelings. Avoid working with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable or vulnerable or tells you anything that frightens you.

Similarly, avoid a Reader who makes outrageous claims that raise skepticism.

A good Reader is a professional with whom you should feel comfortable and safe.

Tips and Warning

  • If you leave a Reader feeling scared, frightened or depressed, never go back to this person and erase from your memory all that you were told by them!
  • If a Reader insists that they know better than you what is right for you, never go back!
  • If a Reader wants to sell you candles or prayers to improve your lot in life, to take away an evil curse, to bring you money or to find the perfect mate, never go back.
  • If a Reader insists that you should come back on a regular basis so that they can help you through a difficult time, be very careful.
  • If you feel the Reader doesn’t genuinely care about you, never go back!
  • Avoid any Reader who asks for money in exchange for removing a curse or a threat to your life or that of a loved one. This is a common scam used by unscrupulous con artists to intimidate people and gain wealth.
  • Finally, if you leave a reading without feeling empowered or without having gained a new perspective on your life and your choices, you might want to shop for a new Reader.

Most reputable Readers charge a flat rate per session or on an hourly basis

If you find yourself consulting a Reader more often than you’d like, consider if you’re addicted to the excitement and attention involved in a reading. Also consider if you’re avoiding something in your life. Readers are not a quick fix: What may be needed is a deeper exploration of the issues involved that only a trained therapist or counselor can provide.

How the Angels Guided me

We all sometimes procrastinate and we all at some stage of our lives receive urgent bills that require your immediate attention.

Well, that is where I found myself in April 2006.  Remember, I was guided  by the Angels to start an Holistic Fayre in the Northern Suburbs, but so far I had done nothing.

Then I received an account that required my attention, and I knew I had to do something urgently.

I decided that the quickest way was to sell some of my crystal jewellery to office staff.  So, I packed my car with stock with the intention of going to Montague Garden, but the Angels had other plans.

As my petrol gauge started flashing, I noticed I was on the back road to Durbanville.  Why did I not go to Montague Gardens or Kilarney?  I wondered!  Still no idea as to why I was being lead to an area I did not know at all.

Upon arriving in Durbanville, I remembered someone once said to me:  “If you looking for a venue for the market, ask Estate Agents.”  Would you believe it – right there in front of me was an Estate Agent Office.

Directed to various schools in the area, I did my rounds.  Somehow the venues did not seem correct – parking, hall etc.  Nothing felt right.

Lastly, I walked into the Community Hall through the side door  (which is always locked, but on this occasion it was open).

As I walked in, I just knew, this is it!  This is the venue.  Wow!  I was thrilled!

I quickly went to see the municipality, and booked September, October and November months.  December was not available, neither were dates before.

I came home quite proud of myself, and started putting things into action.
As excited as I was, there were a few friends that questioned my dreams and inspiration.  They suggested all sorts of things about my proposed new scheme, and I was starting to doubt myself.

In May month I connected once again with my Angels, and asked them for help and a sign.  I asked that the sign be a date for July month.  If I could get a date for July, I knew I would be blessed and that I was guided and not my imagination.

Next morning, bright and early, saw me at the Municipality once again.  I confirmed all the dates and asked if it were possible if they had a date available for July month.

Would you believe it – they had just had a cancellation.  This confirmation was more than I needed at the time.  No, there was no date available for August month, remember, I did not ask for one.  Now I knew that the Fayre would be blessed.

On a beautiful warm winter’s day in July month we opened our doors. I was more than nervous and insecure. I am human!  I knew the Angels were with us and we were blessed.

By the time we got to October month, again, friends were telling me what to do and not do.  Some even advised to close down the Fayre.  So once again, I approached the Angels.  And asked them, if I am the right person to do this
Fayre, that if I must continue to give me a date for December.

So bright and early in October 2006, I walk into the municipality office in Durbanville.  I confirm all the dates for 2007 and then the lady asks me:  “I see you do not have a date for December, would you like one?”  I reply:  “if one is available.  Why not?”

She paged through the diary, and says “How about 9 December, would that suit you?”

The hairs on my back stood on end.  Why do I doubt the Angels?  Why do I question their guidance?  Who am I to question them?

Not only did they give me a date in December! They gave me my birthday!  The date for the December Fayre was my birthday.

Since then, I never looked back, nor doubted the Angel’s guidance and advice.  I follow their advice always.
This month we celebrate our 5th Birthday Bash.  Guided by Angel Wings we are growing stronger and strong.

Welcome! It’s our Birthday Bash.

History of About Holistic

How time flies!

It feels like just yesterday when we opened our doors for the first time in the Northern Suburbs.

In February 2006, I was guided to start the Holistic Fayre in the Northern Suburbs.  This made me very nervous indeed, but guided by the Angels, I found the perfect venue.  July 2006 saw us in Durbanville.  I knew this venue was only temporary to help me build confidence and find the right Exhibitors.

February 2008, we moved to our current premises in Bothasig. The Bothasig hall always called me, and I felt right at home and comfortable.  The hall is spacious, has a wonderful courtyard, large foyer, enormous stage with a minor hall and extensive main hall.  The sky- light brought in the much required sun light.  The hall proved to be spacious and quickly filled up with our energy.

Alas, 6 months later, due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to move temporarily   to Edgemead Hall, where we celebrated our 3rd birthday. But we were back in time for Christmas in our favourite hall in Bothasig.

Our 4th Birthday was celebrated with World Cup Soccer, and today, we are proud to announce our 5th Birthday Celebrations.

We have now become a regular feature in the Northern Suburbs. Our website is filled to the brim with news and events happening in the area, plus interesting reads, information, and inspirational stories to inspire you.

I have learnt so much from you, our Visitors – our website is very popular indeed, our weekly gazette well read.  Caring and devoted Exhibitors, interesting talks and workshops plus now also our new blog.

I am proud to say, that our mailing list has grown over the years to more than I expected:  all email addresses obtained directly from people who are interested.  Our website is receiving over 600 visits per day.  Somehow I feel the Angels are smiling upon us all, there is even one over your shoulder now, smiling as you read.

Welcome! It’s Our Birthday Bash
