  • This is nature… resilient.

    This is regeneration - life continues. However, we seem to forget that things don’t all just happen over night. It took thousands and millions of years for whole habitats to evolve. And here in Australia we have lost entire habitats to the fires to date and the fires are still raging. Many species are now considered extinct or threatened with extinction. We have lost more than 7 million hectares, with nearly 500 million animals killed,…

  • I have suffered violence first hand, more than once.

    I have suffered violence first hand, more than once. I was raped and nearly murdered. I am just one of a multitude of women around the world. It is estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner (not including sexual harassment) at some point in their lives. However, some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women…

  • Our leaders need to know that deflection and avoidance will not work anymore.

    Our leaders need to know that deflection and avoidance will not work anymore. Our leaders need to know that our eyes are OPEN. We are awake to what is happening. We SEE them. We SEE what they are doing, what is happening, what is being done and what is not. And we are saying - WE ARE NOT LOOKING AWAY. We are saying to our leaders, to those in power, you must open your eyes,…

  • Australia is facing an extreme crisis of catastrophic proportions

    We are in the midst of a crisis of unprecedented levels. The fires here in Australia are so extensive and like “nothing we have ever seen before.” More than 100 fires are burning across the eastern coast. NSW has declared a state of emergency for seven days. 600 schools have been closed. So far 3 human lives have been lost, countless creatures and wildlife has been devastated and more than 200 homes destroyed. And to…

  • Water is life.

    The level of complacency in big business and government around our water resources seems incomprehensible. Here in Australia, we are in an extended severe drought. Entire towns have run out of water or are just about to, and yet as a nation we have not given this the attention it needs or deserves. This is not just ignorance, it is negligence. The sad truth is - most of us know this but feel helpless. We…

  • To free yourself from anxiety, you must restore trust in your self

    Anxiety and depression are on the rise. The early years of the 21st century have witnessed a worldwide epidemic of poor mental health and related illnesses. But while depression is the condition most will associate with mental health issues, anxiety disorders tip the scales. Globally an estimated 284 million people experience anxiety, making it the most prevalent mental health or neurodevelopmental disorder. Around 62% of those suffering from anxiety are female. Amongst the various forms…

  • Today is a significant day

    Today is a significant day. Today, the sacred rock - Uluru - was reinstated as the sacred place it is: as a place of ancient, historical and current relevance. She is truly a center: of power, of ancient lore, creation laws, a universe of past present and future dreaming. She is the sacred ground of our First Nation people, of our ancestors, past, present and future. She is the creation field, a source of anchored…

  • The disturbance of the world is a cry for inner connection.

    We have been so deeply conditioned to focus on external events that most people don’t realise all the problems we are facing are the result of a deeper underlying cause.  The environmental crisis, political instability, mental health epidemic, systemic corruption... every crisis we are faced with is a symptom of profound disconnection. Disconnection from our true self. Disconnection from nature. Disconnection from each other. Disconnection from creation/ creator.  If we go to the root of…

  • Day Zero. The dates rivers and dams that supply water are expected to run out

    Meanwhile, in Australia - the driest continent in the world (aside from Antarctica) - we are experiencing an extreme and prolonged drought - one of the worst in decades. That last line in the above image says: major rural towns run completely dry.  That’s not just oh, there’s not much water. Read it again.... COMPLETELY DRY. And our government is considering extending expansive coal mining rights into 2048 - to mines directly responsible for depleting…

  • That is not a life. This is

    What a dilemma we are in. We all recognise the destructiveness of our lifestyle - yet most struggle to break free of the consumer cycle. Humans are addicts. Self destructing ones. The irony is we know it, but we still deny it, ignore it or blatantly continue it.  WHY?? Because we have emotional attachment to whatever is familiar. Why do you think advertising agencies bombard us from every direction with emotional campaigns that convince you…

  • This is us… our world. All in the name of convenience.

    We are literally swimming in the toxic soup of our own shortsighted, irresponsible, filthy greed. But the greatest tragedy is not just that we are doing this to ourselves, but that we are doing it to ALL life on earth. We have been sold the story (and all it’s products) of convenience. But why has this been such a vigorous, successful sweep across the world? Why are we so attached to ‘convenience’? And why are…

  • This is our home. Our world is burning.

    This is not just OUR home. Millions of lives are being killed. Our world is in peril. This is our wake up call, not for our own spiritual awards, but for the sake of all life on Earth. THIS IS GOING TO BLOW YOUR MIND!! The Amazon blaze in Brazil is actually only third in the world in wildfires over the last 48 hours. READ THAT AGAIN… 3rd!! According to NASA MODIS satellite, the data…

  • This is a tragedy. The Amazon rainforest is burning at an unprecedented rate, and is directly related to deforestation

    This is a tragedy. The Amazon rainforest is burning at an unprecedented rate, and is directly related to deforestation. The fires are lit to clear land for cattle ranching - responsible for as much as 80% of the ongoing deforestation. FACTS: the Amazon is the world’s largest tropical rainforest - about half the size of the U.S. and responsible for more than 20% of the worlds oxygen - this is our planet's living lungs! In…

  • Violence is escalating throughout the world, particularly at a societal level.

    Violence is escalating throughout the world, particularly at a societal level. Take the record of mass murders in the U.S. As of July 31, 2019, 248 mass shootings have occurred in 2019 (alone). This averages out to 1.2 shootings per day. In these shootings, 979 people were injured and 246 died (for a total of 1,325 victims). There have been more than 110 mass shootings in the US since 1982, according to investigative magazine Mother…

  • Earth does not belong to us. We belong to her

    Today is Reconciliation Day in Australia. ‘Sorry’ day. This day is full of so many mixed emotions, thoughts, narratives. I am Ngamalaja Ngankari, Yarre Wayame- a Woman of earth, of Indigenous heritage, of mixed heritage. I am consciousness, soul, eternal life. And in my heart I know the trauma and pain of my ancestors, and I know that these pains are not separate from any other human - for we are not separate beings -…

  • My secret to good health

    People have always been curious about my diet and lifestyle. I get a lot of comments about the health and glow of my skin, but even more so when people find out how old I am (I’m 52 today and couldn’t be happier or healthier!).  My age usually sparks even greater curiosity: wow, how do you do it?... what's your secret?? And actually, the truth is really - it’s no secret. What we put in…
