Usually people start their About Me by stating where they've come from, well I want to tell you where I'm going. Everything I do, all my intentions and all my work are about creating the circumstances to have a healing centre where I help people die.
I think the inspiration came from when I first read the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. I had bought a copy for my 35th birthday and I was pretty blown away by it. Some day, I decided, I would read its introduction to people who were dying. As a general background to me, it's probably important for you to know that I am not Buddhist and I do not follow any religion.
The science nerd
I was never big on ideas of destiny or fate, and a lot of what I hear is a bit of a leap for me. My college buddies will remember me, not always fondly, as the science nerd. Or at least the one with all the questions. You know the joke about the mature age student who never shuts up? Yup, that was me.
To this day I've never read Louise Hay (although I am told her book You Can Heal your Life was 'guided'). I still have to find out who Wayne Dyer is because people who used to follow me on Instagram like to quote him a lot. In fact I own up to being fairly pathetic at this mystical stuff.
I fell into writing about Feng Shui. I trained with a great Master in Melbourne and then became aware that I could hear aspects of the Li tradition. It's a bit like falling in love. It just happened and there's no going back.
So apologies to Mr Dyer if you're reading this (20 years in Australia has not eradicated the Irish wit) and I hope you now know a little more about me. In short: I'm a writer and I'm not starting a religion. Feng Shui is important to me but the end game looks a whole lot different.
All About You
This blog contains general information about the spiritual journey. Whilst it started out being just about Feng Shui and flower essences, I have now switched focus and write only about the love that exists beyond time. Since this is a ‘whole of life’ approach I look for as many ways as possible to explain the bigger picture. This includes interviewing people whose lives inspire others to action.
Wishing you Health and Happiness,
Why do I do what I do? When I was at the David Hockney exhibition I asked myself why, if you had all this talent, would you do this? And now it occurs to me that people ask the same of me. So I thought would write about why I do what I do. read...
Yes, I find it challenging it too. I am not actually supposed to be doing this at all – I am supposed to be a successful acupuncturist with a busy Melbourne city practice. Twelve months ago I had a lease on a clinic, a business plan and I was all ready to go. What...
Melbourne Museum features high on our list of things to do in the city and recently I was drawn to the Koorie Voices exhibition in the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre. I’ve been to Bunjilaka before but on previous visits I had missed out on meeting Archie Roach....
I think this may have been Siôn Hughes’ first interview, which is good because it was my first one too. It went pretty well, I think, but mostly because interviewing someone who is intelligent, articulate and obviously good at what they do is not exactly hard work....
