3 Things You MUST Know Before You Do An Enema | Tyler Tolman

Have you ever considered doing an Enema?  I have and that’s as far as I got, well OK not exactly, I got brave enough to go to the pharmacy to get the douche kit and then did nothing with it. It’s still sitting brand new in it’s box.

I came across Tyler Tolman’s video today as I get his emails and it reminded me that I had it and had done nothing with it and I’m thinking that 2017 hasn’t exactly been the greatest of years for me so perhaps its time to clean out the shit so to speak and start a fresh. No I mean literally clean out the shit!  A spring clean after Christmas along with a 21 day detox like I did last year and felt amazing. Then of course like any good detox or cleanse make sure you drink plenty of Healthier Water.

Tyler Tolman takes you through the 3 things you MUST know before doing an enema at home: Why you need them, how to use them and how to do them safely.

Will you be brave enough, like me and give your body the cleanse that it deserves once – at least once in this lifetime if not more!

Enjoy the article and let us know what you think.

Saving the Bee’s

Sunday 17 December 2017

Today I witnessed the most magnificent process of the removal of thousands and thousands of bees from my water meter.

Before I begin let me take you back to February 2017 when unbeknown to me I had a swarm of bees living in my water meter. Now this is on the far side of my property which I don’t regularly go to or check up on, so I had no idea they had nested in there. One day the Water Corporation visited my home to take a reading and obviously couldn’t get near the meter, so instead of informing me or knocking on my door that day (which I was home) they continued to destroy and murder ALL the bees and destroy their hive with chemicals!

ALL dead and semi cleaned out of the water meter and dumped on a piece of cardboard in the hot sun, honey dripping all over the drive way.

Much to my horror, I discovered this when my partner came over that night and asked why I had honey sitting on my bins?? WTF!

To say I was angry was an understatement. I spent weeks chasing up and writing to the Water Corporation to rectify this problem and demanding answers as to why they had killed all my bees with chemicals without notifying me.

So…some 9 months later and I discovered that my colony of bees have been hard at it again. Not wanting for them to be destroyed again by the over zealous and destructive Water Corporation Company I rang a local bee removalist who kindly came around and carefully and calmly removed the complete hive and rehoused nearly all of it into a bee box, along with all the bees.

Standing and watching this process was fascinating however first off, a little note – do not stand around watching with short sleeves and hair down.  They could smell my freshly washed hair and continued to fly around my head which sent me into a state of “arrg its a bee” no matter how calm I attempted to remain I just did not want to get bitten and they just kept annoying me.

Then I got stung on my cheek – ow – and subsequently dropped my phone on the pavement out of reaction to attempting to get the bee off me. I immediately dowsed it with Apple Cider Vinegar. Determined not to miss out on any of this process and the opportunity to grab some magnificent pics, I covered my complete head with a bandanna and went back out. Again they came to attack me…ugh  what now!

I ran inside, after fighting of the one or two pescky bee’s determined to hang off me and quickly looked up natural bee repellents.  I proceeded to cover my arms and face with coconut oil with cinnamon essential oils in it and again ventured back outside.  Again, they started to come near me.  UGH..I was getting quite frustrated when I could actually see the bee removalist Ash very calmly working away already, bare hands and all doing his thing.  I went back into the garage and found a reasonable size piece of flyscreen that I popped over my head and pegged together with clothes pegs. I must have looked a site however I didn’t care. I was now protected from swarming bees and I could get close enough and watch the whole process unfold at last.

Some 3 hours later and the whole hives were successfully and carefully removed from the meter and most of it was rehoused into a new box and their new home.  Ash was really excited as he was hoping to find the Queen Bee. He said, she’s really smart and mostly hides and keeps finding her way to the bottom.  Given that their were thousands and thousands of bees in the box, he thought maybe she might already have been transferred into his box.  He said, I’ve got a feeling she’s hiding in that corner and indicated to me which corner. I ducked inside for a quick moment only to miss the moment Ash found the Queen Bee and managed to capture her. She will go into the new box now for a couple days and then be released.

The little smoking pot drawing the bees away from the meter box and into their new home and away from the cones so Ash could get to them was a fascinating process to see.  If anyone had to have a hive removed I would certainly recommend Ash and I hope to hear one day soon that he has turned it into a flourishing business because what he does is absolutely invaluable and is certainly my preferred option in the future rather than have the Water Corporation destroy hives and murder bees the way they do!.

Thanks Ash. I will be forever grateful for what you have done today. It’s made my weekend and the honey tastes incredible.

HOW TO DEAL WITH BURNOUT – Take these steps immediately

I love these videos by Kate Maree O’Brien because she’s often spot on the money with what she shares and because she’s genuinely experienced it herself.
I can relate to this!
When I started working for myself some 13 years ago I went hell for leather for probably the first 7 years and wondered why by 2010 I became very sick and run down, often tired and wanting to just sleep, sleep, sleep.  Anxiety and stress was obviously getting to me although I would never readily admit that. I was fine. I was a machine. I could just keep going. I often said, “Sleep is over rated” and “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”. Little did I know that sleep was one of the most important things for my healing and recovery. Now sleep to me is very important. I often have no problems sleeping, however sometimes its the quality of my sleep that counts.

FEELING BURNTOUT? WATCH THIS VIDEO! This is the exact steps to take immediately if you’re feeling overwhelmed or burnt out and your system system is on overdrive. When you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and you’ve been running for so long, your system starts to go into a survival-type mode, and the first priority is to unwind that. To allow your system to unwind, so that you can breathe. And from there make better decisions for yourself. Healing burnout, starts with self care. Burnout comes about when we take on TOO much. So dealing with burnout requires us to be able to step back and make new decisions. To be a powerful no and a powerful yes. To eliminate things out of our lives. BUT it’s hard to do that when we are burntout, so the FIRST thing. The MOST urgent thing with burnout is (drum roll please).. Taking time for yourself to unwind your system. This is more important than anything else, and becomes your highest priority. In this video I discuss what I mean by ‘The Power of Attorney’, and going into ‘ICU’. Ive put myself in ICU, so many times, and I have a really low tolerance to putting myself in there too!
