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.

Energy of Number 6

Image

The number 6 vibrates to the energies of ownership, possessions and material wealth, love of home and family, care of others and nurturing, empathy and sympathy, responsibility and selflessness, provision and providing for the self and others. Number 6 signifies the need for stability in all aspects of your life.

The message of Number 6 is to keep a balance between your material goals and aspirations, and your spiritual, inner-self. Be grateful for what you have already, as an ‘attitude of gratitude’ encourages further positive abundance.

Number 6 encourages you to be loving, caring and nurturing of yourself and others.

ImageSpirit of Six: Self-harmony; compassion; love; service; social responsibility; beauty, the Arts; generous; concerned; caring; children; balance; community service.

Influence of Six: Six is a center for harmony and balance, an excellent place for a family, especially with children. Six can contribute to feelings of wanting to help others and community service. Six is also excellent for those wanting to develop their artistic abilities or for nurturing and caring, such as a counselor or medical professional. In a Six it is easy to get to the heart of matters in a caring and compassionate way. Close loving relationships with your partner, roommates, friends and family come to life in a Six. Beautifying a Six as well as the surrounding area will drive those under this influence.

Challenges of a Six: Six is so geared toward giving there may be a tendency to give too much — seek a balance between giving to others and taking care of your own needs. The comfort in a Six may make one reclusive — push yourself out into the wide world!

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
