Awakening

awakening banner

Hello everyone. Thank you for allowing me to write about my on-going adventure called awakening.

I’ve recently been experiencing smells. No matter where I go I’m always smelling perfumes and men’s fragrances and it happens randomly in people’s houses.

So besides the fact that I feel the pain and struggles going on in people’s lives I’m now smelling the people that are roaming around in their spaces from another realm.

Its been a hectic few months. I’ve had friends becoming ill and obviously carrying their feelings and melancholy. I’m also going through some health issueawakenings but it gets me wondering if my friends’ illnesses haven’t just attached itself to me.

I’m having back pains- is it a spirit attached to me or just a health issue?

I’m going for a mammogram soon- is that just me feeling my friends pain and its causing me chest pain as its near my heart and I love them so much. They are like my sisters.

Family of mine is going through cancer and chemo so is it my imagination that my breasts are painful and I’m just feeling their pain or is my pain valid and it might be something bad I really can’t- say but my journey being an empath is teaching me so many things, that every day is a new experience.

That’s it for now. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my journey into the unknown world of the supernatural.

Shining Light on What is Dark

light banner

Everyone speaks about the light, giving little reference to darkness – or that which haunts you. It comes as a gift to us, beautifully packaged but unopened. What deters us is the fear of the contents, also known as TRAUMA.

To identify Trauma, you have to peel away layers and layers of addiction, fear, abuse, neglect, vanity, competition, inadequacy, lack of grieving/excessive grieving, violation of self and others, worry and not speaking your TRUTH.

Everyone develops ways to cope and accept a life that is half lived. We set a goal for ourselves and we give it time, multiplied by effort and then we expect an outcome. What we fail to admit to ourselves is what we’re trying to hide when – We know that the goal we set is not what we want and it’s not who we are OR the level ofsunshining the light the goal is mediocre. A pattern of Trauma is then activated: shame, denial, deceit, neglect. These are the pillars of Trauma.

Remember the diet that you attempted every Monday morning? Or the intention of completing that which you’ve postponed over and over? Or what about the last cigarette that you’ve lit, 30 cigarettes ago? The list becomes endless. And so each time we berate ourselves for not being strong enough, bold enough, weak, powerless, cowardice and fearful. At the end of the last cigarette, of ‘the last time and this is final,’ we are so traumatised that of course we deserve one more for the road. How do we make it out alive? We don’t. We barely function. We pretend.

Facing what haunts you is gruelling stuff. But we cannot journey forward if we don’t get that monkey off our backs.

World of Crystals

world of crystals

Crystals are very close to my heart, and I work with them regularly. Work? OK, Play, does that sound better? My friends often ask me if I am ‘crystaling’.

I see my crystals as friends. They help me with my garden, home, work and Fayre. They also keep me company when I sleep and bathe.

008Each crystal has its own ‘personality’ and ‘character’. Each crystal is different as it is made from different minerals, thus portraying its own colours, plus each has its own unique inclusions. Just like human beings, no 2 crystals are the same.
Crystals are conscious that they are housed in a crystalline body, just as we are conscious that we are housed in a physical body. We are only guardian or keepers of crystals.
Crystals are not our slaves. So we have to ask them to do things for us or where they want to be placed in the home, car, work, garden etc.
If the crystal does not feel happy, it will either shut down and not work, or move. Yes, crystals do move!

Crystals gather, hold, amplify and release energy.

My crystal series is going to concentrate on a specific crystal, giving you ideas on how to clean and work with them. You will also get a good idea on what to do with the crystal once you have chosen it.

031Beauty truly is a need. Even if you are only attracted to crystals for their beauty, allow their sparkling energy to get inside of you and uplift you.

You might even be pleasantly surprised as they stimulate some aspect of yourself, like your imagination, your ideas, or your sense of dreaming. Take it one step further and imagine going inside one of them.

You might receive messages or symbols. Whilst ‘crystaling’ you might even feel healing.
The energy of the crystal has the essence and the beauty if you will tune into them.
Enjoy ‘crystaling’

7 years and still going strong

Image7 years ago, I followed a dream and was guided to start an Holistic Fayre in the Northern Suburbs. Little did I know where I would be guided and the events that would follow.

In July 2007 we opened our doors for the first time in Durbanville. Exciting times lay ahead. Twenty Exhibitors signed up, and by 4pm we had over 200 visitors stream through our doors. Wow! What an achievement! We even had room for a drumming circle and Free Talks!

In July 2008 we celebrated our first birthday in Durbanville. By this stage, we were so busy, and we outgrew the hall, there no room for new Exhibitors and the public found the venue very cramped. So: by the end of 2008, we moved to our new and improved hall, in Bothasig.

Within a few month of transferring the Fayre to Bothasig, due to unforeseen circumstance, The Northern Suburbs Holistic Fayre together with 40 Exhibitors, moved temporarily to the little community hall in Edgemead for 6 months, and celebrated our 3rd birthday there. By Christmas 2009, we were back at our favourite hall, Bothasig.

Our 4th Birthday in 2010 saw the World Cup Soccer played in South Africa, and we celebrated it under the first rain that the Northern Suburbs Holistic Fayre ever experienced. The rain washed away all our old problems and gave birth to new ventures and experiences.

2011 saw the first of our now popular shows: Belly Dancing, Hula Hoop, Bollywood Dancing, Fire Dancing, Drumming Circle to mention but a few.

In 2012 the 20minute Free Talks were re-introduced at the Holistic Fayre. These talks have proved to be extremely popular and well attended.

Today , 2013, we celebrate our 7th Birthday – we have reached our 7th Heaven. Thanks to our hard work, we are proud to announce that 3 other new Holistic Fayres have opened in The Northern Suburbs, thus forcing us to change our name from Northern Suburbs Holistic Fayre to The Holistic Fayre, Bothasig. We are proud to be the catalyst in this new trend. We are proud to be the leaders and pioneers in breaking new ground in the Northern Suburbs by introducing wholesome living. We take this opportunity to wish the other Holistic Fayres everything of the best.

Long may we all prosper together. Together we can spread Love, Light, Harmony and Friendship.

Cleaning your Crystals

Cleanse new crystals straightaway, particularly if you intend to use them for healing. Cleansing is not a physical process – rather it is a spiritual ritual. In esoteric terms, crystals absorb and retransmit all energies with which they come into contact. In healing, crystals become receptive to emotional energies.

Cleansing your crystal back to a neutral state ensures that accumulated negative energies are not passed on. This process also re-energises the crystal and ensures that it functions at its highest level.


Let your intuition be your guided: keep the intention in mind that you are clearing away all inappropriate energies and that you are working with purity of purpose.

The following are some different ways to cleanse, purify, re-energise and tune your crystals. Please note that as some crystals are sensitive to heat, light and/or water, not all methods will be suitable for all crystals.

Cleansing with Water – Cleanse your crystals by holding them under cool running water, such as an ordinary bathroom tap for several minutes. As you do so, think about a beautiful waterfall you have seen of visited. Or imagine the waves lapping over your crystal on a tropical beach.
Note: Do not do this ritual with Halite, Selenite, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite or Turquoise as these crystals are sensitive to water.

Stone Clearing and Crystal Clusters– Some stones will clear the negative or unwanted energies from other stones. The best all round crystal for this is Clear Quartz. Place the stone to be cleared on a the “clearing” stone, and leave for 24 hours. Amethyst Bed can also be used- use a large piece, or bed, of Amethyst to cleanse several crystals at once. Amethyst is said to transmute lower energies into the higher frequencies of both the spiritual and ethereal worlds, thereby transforming whatever is placed on it. Leave your crystals on the Amethyst Bed for 24 hours.

Earth Burial – Crystal have come form the Earth. You can bury your crystals in the ground (do remember to mark where you have buried them!). The Earth has a natural magnetic quality which will draw off negativity. Leave your crystals in the Earth for 24 hours.

Resonating Sound – The vibrations of pure sound can quickly cleanse crystals. Purify your crystals with the resonating sound of a bell you love. You can cleanse and purify a roomful of crystals by ringing the bell above them, but the best way is to purify crystals one at a time. Perform this ritual for a few minutes. Another very effective and quick way to cleanse your crystals is by using a singing bowl.

Smudging – Smudge your crystals by burning a wedge of dried herbs and waving the smoke over and through them – proprietary “Smudge Sticks” are perfect for this ritual. You can use smudging to purify a roomful of crystals. Perform this ritual for a 5 minutes. incense can also be used.

Sunlight and Moonlight – Light is the essential currency of crystal healing so re-energise your water-cleansed crystals in sunlight and moonlight for 24 hours – the time of the Full Moon is perfect for this. Your crystals need a day of sunlight and a night of moonlight to re-energise.

It is important to tune your crystals directly after cleansing, purifying and dedicating. Remain in a relaxed alert state. Hold your crystal in one hand and place your other hand over it. Visualise an energy connection between you and the crystal (for example, a ray of white light). Decide on the crystal’s purpose and then say out loud “I intend this crystal to be an effective tool for … (e.g. healing, mediation, dream interpretation
