How to create anything you want in life – Kate’s Top Ten Lessons

Have you ever felt like sometimes in life you just can’t go on anymore, you’ve got nothing left to give?. I know I have at times.
Have you ever experiences that feeling of being able to create anything you want in life? I know that feeling too.
The highs and lows of life is what I call this sometimes too.

However, thankfully to the power of some incredible personal development teachers I learnt so much about myself over a period of time and I continue to do so on a daily basis when things and situations show up for me to experience.

Along the way, I crossed paths, online, with Kate Marie O’Brien and I have to say her work is incredible. She’s been through soooo much and she openly and willingly shares her stories AND she is so talented too as she creates the most empowering, touching, raw, authentic and powerful messages via videos. I love her videos and love to share the messages she puts out there with others.

So here’s another one from Kate Marie O’Brien – enjoy and leave a comment of how you enjoyed and subscribe to her You Tube channel to see all the other videos and the up and coming ones too.

HOW to be unstoppable and shift through ANYTHING that can come up in your life.
This is the MANUAL of ‘HOW TO’ that we should’ve been born with…

I learnt these TOP TEN lessons, through trial and error. Going from anorexia, drug addiction, bulimia and depression, where I almost lost everything. To slowly building my life back up. Relearning how to be in the world, Regathering my strength… through to now, where I have a team of 10 full time employees, live where I want to in the world, and have the life I envisioned. PLEASE dont hear ‘perfect life’.. we all have our human experiences, ME INCLUDED! but in all honesty, its pretty damn far from what I had experienced. It feels like what happened to me, happened to someone else…

Recently someone reached out (again), and asked “do you have a video where you condense how you did it, and what you’ve learnt…”

I know they’re referring to how I turned my life around.
And I know that sounds a little wanky, and even boring
As soon many people talk about ‘I did this, and you can too’

So let’s just be clear
THIS, is NOT that.

What it IS, is THIS…

Ive taken my learnings from the last 15 years with everything Ive gone through
Put them in a pot
Boiled off all the water
And gotten it down to 10 remaining nuggets sitting in the bottom of the pot

… these are the TEN biggest things that I learnt through trial and error
And Ill be zero’ing in on the HOW

HOW I moved through my rock bottoms
HOW I managed to build up a team of 10 full time employees
HOW I’ve been able to be able to continue in the face of anything that’s arisen from me
HOW I’ve been able to not be stopped

… AND these ‘hows’ are universal.
Meaning, they’ll cross credit into YOUR life
Regardless of what you’re currently experiencing

The Ancient Tibetan Practice for Health and Vitality (via UPLIFT)

The Ancient Tibetan practice for Health and Vitality

By Azriel ReShel on Sunday March 27th, 2016

How Ten minutes a Day can change your Life

Some years ago I attended a yoga class where my flamboyant artist friend and yoga teacher shared an interesting sequence called The Five Tibetans. I immediately fell in love with this simple, short and totally useable sequence and it became a great resource that I turn to and use for a quick yoga pick me up. For some time it was a daily sequence, but it’s always been one I return to, and a sequence that I teach my students as a self empowering, simple yoga ritual they can do on their own at home.

So what are the Five Tibetans?

The Five Tibetans or the Five Rites of Rejuvenation, is a system of five, believed to be Tibetan, Yogic exercises said to be over 2500 years old. You flow through the five exercises almost in a meditative dance. Each exercise stimulates a particular chakra or hormonal system and revitalises certain organs, so that the five rites together form a complete workout for the body as a whole.

This series of movements also known as “The fountain of youth” are credited with the ability to heal the body, balance the chakras and reverse the ageing process in just ten minutes a day.

The movements are also known as
The movements are also known as “The Fountain of Youth”

According to legend, a British explorer learned the rites in a Himalayan Monastery from Tibetan monks who had excellent health despite their advanced age. Some skeptics cast doubt upon the origins of the practice, but no matter the exact source, there is no uncertainty about the great health benefits of the practice. Peter Kelder first publicised the Tibetan Rites in 1939 in a publication, The Eye of Revelation. The sequence was later popularised through a book, The Five Tibetans, written by yoga teacher Chris Kilham, who says we will never know their true origins:

“Perhaps they come from Nepal or Northern India…As the story has it, they were shared by Tibetan lamas; beyond that I know nothing of their history. Personally, I think these exercises are most likely Tibetan in origin. The issue at hand, though, is not the lineage of the Five Tibetans. The point is [their] immense potential value for those who will clear 10 minutes a day to practice.” – Chris Kilham

Yoga teachers are in agreement, the sequence is a simple yet incredibly, even deceptively powerful one that creates a dynamic energetic effect in the body increasing the flow of prana or chi up the spine and through the chakras, energising every cell in your body.

Turning back the clock

According to the Tibetan lamas, the only difference between youth and old age is the spin rate of the chakras (the body’s seven major energy centres).This specific routine is said by lamas to stimulate all seven chakras to spin rapidly at the same rate. They believe that if any one of the chakras is blocked and its natural spin rate slowed, then vital life energy will be unable to circulate and so ageing and illness will set in. The Five Tibetans are called the rites of rejuvenation because the lamas say the ageing process is stopped by the unblocking and activation of the spinning of the chakras due to this sequence. Recent medical research has uncovered convincing evidence that the ageing process is hormone-regulated.The sequence also normalises hormonal imbalances in the body which also hold the key to lasting youth, vitality and wellbeing.

As simple as the Five Tibetans may seem, they have a profound effect on the energy and chakra system of the body, stimulating the electrical energy of the chakras in the same way as switching on a light switch sets off a flow of electrical energy.

“The Five Tibetans is simple, practical, effective and certainly mind/body altering. If you would love to become rejuvenated, remain calm, feel more vitality, be more flexible and simply look your absolute best, then now there is a new way to experience a greater state of wellbeing that takes just minutes a day, but lasts a lifetime.” … Dr. John F. Demartini

How to practice the Five Tibetans

The Five Tibetans have similarities to some traditional yoga practices: Tibetan 1 is basically Sufi whirling. Tibetan 3 is essentially the camel pose. Tibetan 4 is like an upward table, and Tibetan 5 is a smooth flow of up dog and down dog

First Tibetan

Stand erect with arms strong, outstretched and horizontal with the shoulders. Now spin around in a clockwise direction until you become slightly dizzy. You can employ a ballet-like technique of keeping your eyes on one spot and then returning to that spot when you turn your head in a full revolution.There is only one caution: you must turn from left to right.

Breathing: Inhale and exhale deeply as you do the spins.

First Tibetan
First Tibetan

Second Tibetan

Lie down full length on the floor or bed. Place the hands flat down alongside of the hips. Fingers should be kept close together with the finger-tips of each hand turned slightly toward one another. Raise the feet until the legs are straight up. If possible, let the feet extend back a bit over the body toward the head, but do not let the knees bend. Hold this position for a moment or two and then slowly lower the feet to the floor, and for the next several moments allow all of the muscles in the entire body to relax completely. Then perform the Rite all over again. For greater core strength activation you can lower the legs without touching the floor and then using your belly and your in breath, raise the legs up, in a continuous cycle. Be sure to breath out as you lower the legs. An easier version is to have your hands underneath the buttocks and a more challenging version is to have the arms stretched above the head as you raise your legs.

Breathing: Breathe in deeply as you lift your head and legs and exhale as you lower your head and legs.

Second Tibetan

Third Tibetan

Kneel on the floor with the body erect. The hands should be placed on the backs of your thigh muscles. Incline the head and neck forward, tucking your chin in against your chest. Then fold the the head and neck backward, arching the spine. Your toes should be curled under through this exercise. As you arch, you will brace your arms and hands against the thighs for support. After the arching return your body to an erect position and begin the rite all over again.

Breathing: Inhale as you arch the spine and exhale as you return to an erect position.

Third Tibetan
Third Tibetan

Fourth Tibetan

Sit erect on the floor with your feet stretched out in front of you. The legs must be perfectly straight, with the backs of the knees well down or close to the floor. Place the hands flat on the rug, fingers together, and the hands pointing outward slightly. Chin should be on chest and the head forward. Now gently raise the body on an in breath, using your core strength of your belly to lift the pelvis, and at the same time bend the knees so that the legs from the knees down are practically straight up and down like an upward table. The arms, too, will also be vertical while the body from shoulders to knees will be horizontal. As the body is raised upward allow the head gently to fall backward so that the head hangs backward as far as possible when the body is fully horizontal. Hold this position for a few moments, return to first position on the out breath, and relax for a few moments before performing the Rite again. When the body is pressed up to complete horizontal position, you can tense every muscle in the body.

Breathing: Breathe in as you raise up, hold your breath as you tense the muscles, and breathe out fully as you come down.

Fourth Tibetan

Fifth Tibetan

Place the hands on the floor about two feet apart. Then, with the legs stretched out to the rear with the feet also about two feet apart in a downward dog, push the body, and especially the hips, up as far as possible, rising on the toes and hands. At the same time the head should be brought so far down that the chin comes up against the chest. Next, allow the body to come slowly down to a ‘sagging’ position in an upward dog, with only the toes on the floor. Bring the head up, causing it to be drawn as far back as possible. The muscles should be tensed for a moment when the body is at the highest point, and again at the lowest point.”Be sure not to strain the lower back, by bringing strong flowing movement to the upper shoulders. Those with lower back injuries can bend the legs as they go into upward dog.

Breathing: Breathe in deeply as you raise the body, and exhale fully as you lower the body.

Gain a more focused and purposeful mind

As with all yoga practice, it is important to synchronise your breath with the movement. It’s best to do the exercises in the morning because they get your energy going. But it’s highly likely you will fall in love with the sequence and want to repeat it during the day. To begin with it is best to complete five to seven repetitions of each rite every day and to work up to 21 repetitions of each of the exercises. Usually this takes about 10 – 12 weeks. A lot of people are keen to reach 21 repetitions quickly, but it is best to gradually increase the repetitions. The recommended slow build up process allows your body to develop a strong foundation upon which to improve your flexibility. And it also is important due to the effects of the Rites themselves.  They can initiate many changes in your bodies energy and balance systems. Although this varies from person to person, it is generally best to allow your body time to adjust.

It’s important to ay attention to what your body is telling you and not to strain or force any position that causes pain. There is also a simple and adapted version of the Five Tibetans for those who have injuries or cannot perform the sequence.

When you make this sequence part of your daily practice, you can experience an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing and perhaps the most important benefit, is a dramatic increase in your levels of energy. Other great benefits are a greater resilience to stress and the ability to stay centred. As with all yoga practice greater flexibility in body and mind are usual. Most people report a more focused and purposeful mind and greater awareness, which then creates a happier and more fulfilling life. This sequence really improves the quality of your life.

Experience an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing

A complete and balanced practice

One of the great things about the Five Tibetans, is it is a quick and simple practice that can be done by anyone, regardless of age or fitness levels. It is an incredibly simple ten minute routine that can easily be slotted into your daily life, yet will have major spin offs in all areas. Its free, and its yours. A self empowering practice you can do on your own anywhere and at any time! The Five Tibetans strengthens and stretches all the main muscles in the body. Just as Sun Salutations make up a complete sequence, the Five Rites are a complete and balanced practice.


In just ten minutes a day you can:

  • Reduce stress
  • Feel younger and more powerful
  • Slow down the aging process
  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Enhance vitality
  • Calm the mind
  • Create greater mental clarity and focus

What is Sanakey?

NS Health has introduced the hand-held Sanakey pain-relief device for self-treatment to the Australian public. The Sanakey even has an App for smartphone or tablet and provides the user with detailed information how to use the Sanakey personal pain-relief device and clear treatment directions for common painful complaints.

The impact of pain on health and how the sanakey can help you and your family!

A study in 2012 put the cost in Australia at $A55 billion. The clear majority of these cases were represented by muscular skeletal pain. So the impact of chronic pain at a national level is easy to recognise and put a figure on. With an aging population and the growing increase in metabolic diseases, including diabetes adding to reported pain levels in society, we can only expect a dramatic increase in these costs.

Currently society relies heavily on pharmaceuticals to deal with this issue but from clinical experience we know that this approach doesn’t work in all cases.

On an individual level the impact of Pain on Health isn’t easy to quantify.

Pain is shown to affect sleep, mood and appetite and put an enormous strain on personal relationships. The chronic stress induced at a metabolic level causes a release of both inflammatory and stress chemicals into the body that are linked to wide ranging potential life-threatening conditions from obesity to cancer. Research now shows that the brain responds to chronic pain by forming new networks to reinforce that pain this teaches other parts of the brain to experience more pain.

Often when we see patients at our clinic they are caught in a vicious cycle of pain. They no longer sleep well, there is inevitable weight gain linked to reduced mobility and in some cases patients will report a low mood as well as the pain.

This all makes a clear case as to the devastating impact of pain on our general health as well as society as a whole.

So how can we address pain at an individual level in order to see the positive onflow effect in society?

Most of chronic pain patients we see our Clinic have attempted to address these issues in a number of ways; medication, rest and other therapies. Unfortunately, by the time we see them the issues have been a part of their life for many years.

The use of the sanakey personal pain relief device either as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with pharmaceutical and/or other manual therapies can be the start of breaking these pain cycles.

By treating the pain at an electrical level as well as a physical and chemical level means we see a more sustained effect in the underlying condition that has led to this point.

It’s no surprise to us when someone begins using sanakey, having suffered pain from an injury sustained some 20 years ago reports having “best sleep I’ve had in years” after using the device a few times.

Of course we don’t claim that the sanakey improves sleep, or that it leads to weight-loss but once you remove the chemical and electrical reinforcement of pain within the body it will naturally move away from these states of dis-ease!

So how can the sanakey help you and your family?

Once you begin using your sanakey you’ll find it an indispensable tool for all types of pain:

  • In little ones the sanakey comes in handy anywhere you see pain from colic in little bubs, to the unavoidable bumps, insect bites and bruises as they grow, progressing to sports injuries.
  • For Mum and Dads, the sanakey can address the general aches and pains of growing older: neck and back pain, arthritis from old injuries as well as nerve pain.

When you add up the cost of medications for common ailments over the years and compare to the years of 100% drug-free treatment we would expect you to get from the sanakey – it’s really a great investment for any family.

Ambassador Testimonial, Layne Beachley

“As a professional athlete, I placed an enormous amount of pressure and expectation on my body, mind and overall health for over 20 years.
In 2005 I pushed my body to the limit, suffering a severe disk herniation in the C5/6 region of my neck and as a result I was given two alternatives; surgery or retirement.
After trying almost every alternative medicine and complementary therapy, I elected to give NS Health Australia a go.
With consistent treatment and maintenance, I was able to avoid surgery and retirement and return to competitive surfing without pain and go on to win my 7th ASP Women’s World Championship.
Now that I’m happily retired from competition, NS Health continues to assist me in a multitude of ways.
No matter what the challenge, I encourage everyone to put NS Health Australia to the test!” – Layne Beachley

Tolman Self Care: 6 Pure Essential Oils to Support Gut Health (via tolmanselfcare.com)

When it comes to your wellbeing and longevity, ‘gut health’ is EVERYTHING!

This was a brilliant ancient wisdom that is thankfully coming back to today’s health-conscious world.

So besides a clean, plant-based diet that includes fermented foods, what else can you do to support a healthy gut?

Well, in this article I share with you 6 pure essential oils that do just that.

No. They’re not a substitute for a healthy, plant-based, wholefood rich diet, but they definitely should be a part of your regular self care routine.

First, a quick recap…

It was Hippocrates (the famous ancient Greek physician) who first recognised the importance of gut health by teaching and proclaiming that, ‘ALL dis-ease begins in the gut’.

But sadly today, most people (and their Doctors) fail to relate sickness and/or diseases to what’s happening internally inside the digestive tract.

It’s such a simple principle and yet it’s hardly spoken about in the medical world in favour of symptom-suppressing potions and drugs!

A journey, not a destination

Maintaining gut health is about embracing an ongoing lifestyle where you pay attention to your daily habits, rather than rely on a magic pill when you get sick.

If you simply wait for something to go wrong, you run the risk of causing any number of ailments and even serious diseases down the road within your body.

Signs that you have chaos occurring in your gut are symptoms like these:

  • Digestive problems
  • Brain fog
  • Fatigue
  • Problems sleeping
  • Skin conditions such as itching, rashes and nail fungus
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

All of these are typically caused by constant stress on the digestive tract as a result of eating too much meat, processed foods, refined sugar and alcohol.

So how can plant essential oils help?

Essential oils are highly concentrated, pure extracts from plants that are 50-70 times more potent than herbs.

They are a safe, natural, alternative to synthetic medicine and a powerful defence mechanism for your cells. In the gut they work by killing bad bacteria and healing and protecting the stomach wall, so I recommend that you incorporate one or two of these pure oils into your daily health routine:

1. Lemon Oil

Lemon oil is one of the most versatile and readily available essential oils. It is naturally fragrant, purifying and anti-bacterial, making it effective for soothing and restoring the digestive system.

2. Cardamom Oil

Cardamom is a soothing oil that originates from the seeds of spices related to the ginger family offers fantastic gastrointestinal protection as a result of its anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties.In addition to its ability to prevent bacteria from growing it is also effective at preventing stomach ulcers.

3. Peppermint Oil

Peppermint is a sweet strong-smelling oil that is a great all-rounder in terms of both respiratory and digestive health and wellness. In regards to gut health, it can assist with indigestion as well as stimulate digestion processes.

4. Clove Oil

Clove oil from the buds of the … plant is widely known for its oral health and hygiene properties and is a great remedy for toothache and bad breath.By the same token its powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-parasitic characteristics are powerful for the gut as well, additionally its known to reduce intestinal tract inflammation, relieve stomach upsets and contains the compound ‘eugenol’ to fight yeast infections like candida!

5. Fennel Oil

With its strong liquorice flavour, Fennel is a potent root plant essential oil that is a wonder for maintaining and supporting optimal gut health. Full of antioxidants and antimicrobial agents it also prevents spasms, relieves gas and constipation and treats digestive issues like IBS. As an added bonus, it can also boost your metabolism and assist with losing weight!

6. Oregano Oil

Oregano oil from this popular cooking herb is also one of the most powerful in terms of killing off any unwanted bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites that may be living in your gut!

It’s especially effective in times of digestive stress when you really need to get your digestion back to a normal healthy level of homeostasis.

A Blend of the Best

If you’re looking for a kind of ‘all-in-one’ blend that contains a combination of the best essential oils for supporting gut health, the dōTERRA DigestZen Digestive Blend is a an ideal product, or simply experiment with one or a few of the oils from my top 6 list.

How do you take essential oils internally?

If you are going to use any of the essential oils listed above to support your gut health, it’s essential that you ONLY ingest food-grade pure essential oils that have been produced using natural methods without chemicals or additives.

We use and recommend dōTERRA because of the purity, potency and efficacy associated with these oils.

The oils are each harvested in their own natural habitat and extracted using a distillation process to produce a finished product that is Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade – which basically means the highest quality essential oils available and verified safe for all ages and uses.

Always remember that with essential oils a little goes a long way.

When ingesting, use only a drop or two and dilute with a cup of water and/or a teaspoon of raw honey (which is also great for promoting healthy bacteria in the gut). For milder oils like Lemon Oil, you can place a drop underneath your tongue and swallow for quick access to your blood stream.

Whatever you do, be sure to make pure essential oils a part of your everyday self care, not only for a healthy gut but also for your overall wellbeing and as protection for your long term health.

Tolman Self Care: Big questions about cancer by Don Tolman (via tolmanselfcare.com)

In the years that I’ve monitored the results of the “Cancer industry” – a crusade that I began after witnessing dozens of unnecessary deaths from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation – I have been shocked by the unnecessary over use of weapons of mass destruction. The problem with “Cancer” is that if they were to actually ever really solve the mystery, they’d solve the billions of dollars that this industry generates each year (i.e. millions of Doctors worldwide would need to retrain and ‘the business’ of Cancer would go bankrupt). And despite the immense money raised through countless charities each year and spent on so called research to find a cure, it’s never going to happen.I don’t mean to sound harsh, but through all my years of observational experience, personal research and in having being sent countless people who’ve been told to go home and get their affairs in order because they have incurable cancer, I’ve developed the firm belief that this industry is one of most ruthless and dangerous industries that has ever been deployed on the masses.The war on Cancer is a myth.  It’s not a war we should even be fighting.And if people would only dig in and do a little homework for themselves, they’d realise that there are certain serious questions that need to be asked of any ‘Cancer’ Doctor to be clear on the possible outcome, before undergoing any treatment.

So here are some of those BIG QUESTIONS:

Doctor, if I undergo this treatment will it actually cure my cancer or am I likely to require further treatment down the road?

Doctor, what are my chances of survival if I undergo this treatment?

Doctor, is the treatment you’re proposing one that you’d be comfortable prescribing to any family member of yours that had the same condition?

Doctor, is there any non-invasive alternative at all to the treatment that you’re proposing?

Doctor, what are the known side-effects I can expect should I proceed with this treatment?

Doctor, have you ever seen this treatment fail? If so, in what percentage of cases and are these cases documented?

Doctor, how much is your office going to make from administering the treatment that you’re proposing that I have?

Doctor, can you provide me with the names and contact details of any other patients of yours who’ve undergone similar treatment so that I can feel comfortable about proceeding with it.

These are completely reasonable questions that no one seems to ask because they place complete trust in their Doctor, because he/she is “an expert”.What we have is a system of “allopathic reductionism”. What this means is that Cancer industry success is based on a 5 year survival rate. In other words, if the cancer treatment i.e. the management of the disease, helps you to survive another 5 years, then the treatment was a success.  It’s crazy stuff!What if we walked away from “the war” altogether and started embracing “principles of health” instead, so that we can actually address what leads to Cancer in the first place?

To this day we have cultures – without a single medical degree amongst them – who have no trace of cancer in their communities. But why is this being completely ignored?Why is it that the work of such thoughtful practitioners like Sir Robert McCarrison, Dr Weston Price, Dr Robert Mendelsohn were a total embarrassment to medical science?  Go read up on what they’ve said about Cancer and Disease and ask yourself if their perspective makes sense.There is an old proverb: Fools ask questions wise men cannot answer. In the meantime, “fools” keep disobeying their medical masters by embracing ‘alternative’ treatments for cancer and those pesky testimonials keep coming in that are being hidden from broad public view.I honestly believe that many within the medical industry really do want to help people.

Most truly believe that they are doing the best that can be done to treat cancer and other diseases.  The problem is that ‘the system’ they’re a part of has evolved into an industry that is doing more harm than good. And the tragedy is that most people will not do themselves the service of asking the tough questions of their Doctor before going in for these treatments. They simply hand themselves over and blindly accept whatever the medical world throws at them because they trust it completely – all the while, there are no cures, no one is addressing the ’cause’ and the Cancer industry continues to grow.  Maybe, just maybe, it’s time we stopped ‘fighting this war’ and that we began to simply walk away and embrace a more common-sense path of achieving divine health and longevity.

Wouldn’t this make more sense?

I felt inspired to write this article as a member of the Australian Business Online Directory.

I hope that it INSPIRES people to THINK about and BELIEVE in themselves in a way that is uplifting and loving most of the time.

It’s OK to accept both the light and dark, positive and negative of all the sides of us as one without the other could not exist.

For you to know light you must experience darkness.

For you to know positive you must experience negative.

Enjoy the article and let me know what are your thoughts.

Health Wealth and Abundance to YOU always

YOU Are What YOU Think, Believe and Eat?

Do you really believe that to be so?

Are YOU what you think YOU are?
Are YOU what you believe YOU are?
Are YOU what YOU eat?

I believe that we are all these things and so much more….sooooo much more. We are pure potentiality and yet so many don’t even scratch the surface of DOING anything with their life and I say Doing because I dislike the word “try” infact I tend to never use it in my vocabulary – only when wanting to make a point, lol and I do that often!

You see in life you can go around trying things and yet already just in writing this and possibly in you reading this, the word try just feels like a half ass effort doesn’t it. If you truly want to be successful and I say this to myself as much as anyone who has chosen to take the time to read this, you just gotta give things a go. Afterall you don’t try and breathe do you? You just breathe or you don’t and if you don’t you’re probably dead.
Do It or Do not there is no Try.
I think my friend YODA said it so well when he penned that phrase and it’s become something I live by.

So back to my question are YOU what YOU think you are?

If you’re creating every thought that enters your mind then would it not stand to reason that you are your thoughts. Some thoughts could be polar opposites of each other. I won’t say right or wrong, good or bad, they’re just thoughts that might be opposite ends of the spectrum – interesting concept huh.

So if you think thoughts, are you still those thoughts? What about only if you really believe those thoughts?

It might go for the same concept when somebody tells you something – do you always believe them, is it true right or real? Only if you believe it to be so? So if you have control over your thoughts and also your beliefs would it be fair to say that perhaps YOU are what you think you are and what YOU believe you are. YOU are NOT what other people believe you are after all. It doesn’t matter what other people think of you, it only matters what YOU think of YOU.

Perhaps the difference here would be to concentrate on those things that lift you up, vibrate well with you, excite your soul and allow you to feel good and excited and motivated to go out and really inspire others and succeed in life.  I’m not saying that you can’t feel the sad emotions, the angry emotions or even the hurt emotions however understand that staying in those emotions for too long may not serve you well or lift your spirits or propel you further and further forward.

I have found that when my spirits are high and I feel good, is when I get my best work done.

In saying that, it leads me to the third question… Are YOU what YOU eat?

Well I think that really is a no brainer. For many years I enjoyed junkie type food and things that perhaps weren’t the best for me and noticed that as the years when on I got a few more kgs heavier and feeling more sluggish. Now I’m not saying that I was eating all bad stuff, probably I could have been eating way better. Actually no probably about it, I could have been eating a whole lot better and if I was I would have felt better and then achieved so much more and perhaps a little more exercise thrown in would have helped also. I tend to do that in spurts.

I really noticed this when I got really really sick Christmas of 2010 and i think that might have been the sickest I’ve ever been. It was horrible. I suffered for months later. Everything around me suffered. I become more depressed and didn’t want to get out of bed. I had no energy no spirit no drive to push anything along. Things started to suffer. My staff left. My business suffered. My health suffered. My heart and soul died inside. Everything I had worked so hard for, for so many years was crumbling down around me. I was running a successful six figure business year after year and it felt good, most of the time. I wanted more and yet just didn’t have the drive nor the motivation to push harder or perhaps I should be saying smarter and soon the finances started being affected and its been a long climb back up the mountain. At times it feels like I am still at base camp and yet when I look back on all that I have achieved since then, I think I’m a lot further on than base camp although no where near the summit yet…although I’m working towards that one..

So I started with ME. I started with looking after what I needed. I needed to REST. I needed good quality SLEEP. I needed to be hydrated – I mean really HYDRATED daily with good clean water. I need to start eating better foods and cut out some that weren’t the best. Now I’m not saying that I went completely the opposite – I didn’t and still don’t. I still enjoy my chocolates and coffee and the occassional iced coffee too (you know the sweet ones) and chips however the food that I choose to eat now most of the time is way more healthier and I’m more conscious of it. I”m learning about what products to put on and in my body – the surest way to know, is that if you can’t put it in your mouth don’t put it on your body!

At the start of 2017 I did a 21 day detox program and cleaned out my gut – afterall our health starts with our gut. As a result I lost 4kg. In February I did a 30 day water challenge. Along with eating healthier I consumed 3.5 litres of clean Healthier Water a day and gave back to charity for every day I achieved this (of course I did it! I was determined to succeed) and as a result lost another 2kg. Then my partner and I did a 90 day Wildfit challenge and this was tougher than I imagined. I slipped up occassionally however I still lost another 4kg as a result and I felt great.  For most of the year I mainted the lower weight and yet slowly I’ve put on a couple of kgs again. Now I’m not really overweight for my height however when I feel great I look great and I feel more energetic, so at the start of 2018 it’s time for another detox. Always a great way to start the year ahead. Start how you plan to finish!

The learning curve is incredible and I’m changing things little bit by little bit – it’s much easier that way than over whelming ones self with a complete 360 flip. One product at a time change. What I have learnt over my journey so far, is that without my health I have NOTHING! You can have all the money in the world, yet without your health you have nothing. You can have the best business in the world yet without your health you have NOTHING. You can have a loving family and yet without your health what can you really enjoy.

Look at your health as your number one investment in yourself and everything starts to change from there. That includes looking after your mental health, your physical health and your spiritual health. When you’re in flow everything flows. Be kind to yourself along the way. Change can be challenging at times and when you attempt to do too much all at once you may find you STOP and do nothing. Remember baby steps as long as your moving and moving forward.

YOU are what YOU think
YOU are what YOU believe
YOU are what YOU eat.

Invest in YOU and invest in YOUR success.

Success is in all of us we just gotta take the necessary steps to DO it.

Failure is not the opposite of success its just the polarity of it. Without success there is no failure. Without failure there is no success otherwise you would have nothing to measure this against. If you fall down, make sure you get back up again and again and again…that is the way and the path to success.

With love, health, wealth and abundance to YOU always

Cayenne and Capsaicin, Natures Miracle Medicine (via Organic Lifestyle Magazine)

An article from Organiclifestylemagazine

In other parts of the world, and increasingly in the states, the medicinal benefits of cayenne are well known. In fact, there are over three thousand studies on the health benefits of capsaicin (cayenne’s active ingredient) and cayenne pepper, according to Dr. Patrick Quillin.

It regulates blood pressure, strengthens the pulse, feeds the heart, lowers cholesterol, thins the blood, cleans the circulatory system, heals ulcers, slows hemorrhaging, speeds healing of wounds, rebuilds damaged tissue, eases congestion, aids digestion, regulates elimination, relieves arthritis and rheumatism, prevents the spread of infection, numbs pain, and more.


If I were allowed only one emergency herbal medicine, it would be cayenne tincture because it stimulates circulation throughout the entire body. Cayenne helps the capillaries, veins, and arteries regain their elasticity of youth. Moreover, when the venous structure becomes filled with mucus, the blood “thickens” and has a harder time circulating. Cayenne moves blood like no other herb. Cayenne tincture should be in everyone’s medicine cabinet. In fact, any holistic health advisor or practicing naturopath should have cayenne as a major component in many of their healing protocols.

While cayenne is amazing by itself, when it is combined with another herb, the results are worth more than the sum of its parts. Capsaicin helps every other herb function better because it stimulates the circulation of blood, which helps get the beneficial bio-chemicals and nutrition to the cells.

Cayenne is an extremely effective treatment for heart and blood circulation problems, palpitations, and cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beat). It’s a miracle for congestive heart failure and is beneficial for someone who has any type of circulatory problems, such as high or low blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, high triglycerides, and even varicose veins.

Two teaspoons of cayenne pepper, ground or dried, has 11 calories, an almost none-existent glycemic index, 8.3% of your USRDA of highly bio-available vitamin A. You also get 7.1% of the USRDA of vitamin E, 5.2% of Vitamin B-6, 3.9% of fiber, 3.6% of vitamin C, 3.5% of manganese, and 3.2% of vitamin K.

Daily Cayenne for Prevention and Maintenance

A daily maintenance dosage is 3 teaspoons of cayenne tincture (one teaspoon three times a day). The best benefits of cayenne are realized when taken straight in a liquid form or eating a whole pepper, but for obvious reasons most people will need to build up to this over time. Other alternatives include mixing the powder into food as a seasoning, and drinking cayenne teas. You can also take cayenne capsules.

Recipes for Cayenne Use

Obviously you can put cayenne into any food that calls for hot spice, but there are many other ways to realize the health benefits of cayenne.

Super Vitality Morning Juice Drink

Juice ¼ a cup of ginger, and ¼ a cup of lemon.  Add ¼ a cup of pure cranberry and ¾ a cup of spring water or distilled water. Add cayenne to taste. Drink up!

You can also sweeten it up with stevia.

Lemon, Ginger, Cayenne Tea

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and add 3 tablespoons of ginger (grated, or  finely chopped, and you can also use a garlic press) and ¼ a cup of lemon juice and boil for 30 seconds. Then add the cayenne. Let it steep for five to ten minutes until the ginger is strong and aromatic.

Topical Cayenne Cream

This is amazing for pain relief such as sprains, arthritis, tendonitis, etc. It is also a very effective hair regrowth balm.

In 3 cups of olive oil, mix together 4 tablespoons of ground cayenne, 4 tablespoons of turmeric, and 4 tablespoons of ground ginger.  Stir until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and then cook over low heat (or use a double broiler with medium heat) for approximately 10 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of beeswax and stir until the beeswax has melted. Remove from heat as soon as the ingredients are blended well (Optional, but highly recommended: add 4 ounces of DMSO). You may also use coconut oil instead of beeswax.  Chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes and then whisk the concoction thoroughly, Finally, refrigerate for another 20 minutes. If not already in glass, transfer cream to a glass jar with a sealed lid and store in the refrigerator. The cream stays potent for about 3 weeks. Apply as needed for pain, but with this cream, rub in as much as you can and then let it dry before rinsing off. Warning: The turmeric stains badly! You can make this recipe without the turmeric and it still works very well (it’s just more powerful with turmeric).


This recipe is one part cayenne to two parts alcohol. The stronger the alcohol is the better it is for the tincture. Vodka works, but Everclear is better. Add ingredients to a jar with a lid and place in a dark place. Shake or stir every other day. The tincture will be ready in four weeks. Once your tincture is ready, strain through cheesecloth (a coffee filter works, too) into a dark colored jar. If you do not have a dark jar, store in a dark place.

Deep Tissue Repair Oil

This formula offers pain relief and speeds up the healing process for muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It is very beneficial, too, for arthritis patients, torn ligaments, pulled muscles, headaches, sore muscles, and maladjusted vertebrae. It works better than anything I’ve ever used as a massage oil; it completely relaxes the body and has a wonderful compounding effect with a good massage. It will often get rid of, or at least reduce, a headache almost instantly if you put a drop on both of your temples and rub it in (or if the headache is near the back, rub into the upper trapezoid close to the base of your skull). Used in conjunction with the Bone, Flesh, and Cartilage Formula for serious injuries and the healing benefits are remarkable. Mix ingredients together in dark colored glass jar:

  • 8 oz. Wintergreen Oil
  • 4 oz. Cold Pressed Organic Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 oz. Menthol Crystals
  • 2 oz. DMSO
  • 1/2 cup Arnica Flowers (Dry)
  • 1/2 cup Calendula (Marigold Flowers)
  • 1/4 cup Ginger Root
  • 4 tablespoons of Cayenne (or even better, the hottest you can find)

Leave for three weeks and then strain with a cheesecloth and store in a dark colored bottle. To use, apply directly to skin. It doesn’t typically take much; this recipe is potent.

Shillington’s Herbal Snuff

For sinus infections, toothaches, gum disease, and migraines, this recipe works wonders. All ingredients should be ground and dried. Mix seven parts goldenseal root powder with seven parts bayberry bark powder, one part cayenne pepper powder, and one part garlic powder. Apply directly to infected tooth, gum infection, or sniff hard for sinus infections, deep infections within the jaw, or migraines. Now hold on for dear life.

Mix equal parts cayenne pepper (powder), mullein leaves, and slippery elm powder. Add apple cider vinegar to dampen the mixture.

Capsules, Liquid, or Powder

It depends on the application. Powdered cayenne pepper is simple to use and has a great amount of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Liquid cayenne can have increased potency due to the nature of tinctures, and in emergency situations liquid cayenne can be much easier to administer. Capsules are great for getting many of the benefits of cayenne without the taste, but do be careful. Too many capsules of cayenne on an empty stomach can cause nausea just like taking it in another form. The only difference is a ten minute delay.

What Type of Cayenne To Use

The spiciness of peppers is measured in Scoville Heat Units (S.H.U). While this article mentions cayenne almost every time it refers to the spicy peppers, any hot pepper with a high Scoville heat unit has the awesome health benefits we’re discussing within the article.

Most cayenne sold in stores is about 35,000 S.H.U. This is not strong enough to get the best results for injury applications, pain relief, or heart and stroke conditions. But it’s fine for daily use to help prevent health issues and promote vitality.

For amazing results using cayenne, or for emergency treatments, or injury pain relief and healing, go with 100,000 S.H.U. or more. Habanero peppers that you can find in most grocery stores are about 350,000 S.H.U. And tinctures sold on Green Lifestyle Market are over 100,000 SHU.

The more potent your cayenne tincture, the less you will need to use. This is important because it may not be possible to get a person in the middle of a stroke or a heart attack to drink a full cup of cayenne tea.

Natural Remedies with Cayenne

The list of ailments cayenne can help with are staggering, but there are caveats to be aware of, aside from the burn. Be sure to check out the warnings at the end of the article.


For relief from shingles, cayenne may be ingested and applied as a cream. Capsaicin compounds block pain signals from nerves just under the skin. Apply to blisters several times a day. We advise you first test the cream on a small area of skin to insure there is no adverse reaction.


Diabetes wreaks havoc on the circulatory system. Neuropathy and tissue death of the extremities may result. Current research suggests capsaicin encourages regeneration of damaged nerves and improves circulation, which helps prevent infections such as foot ulcers that may lead to complications and subsequent amputations.

Animal trials of capsaicin injections (for animals with Type 1 diabetes) show decreases in blood sugar levels, restoration of normal insulin, and when neuropeptides are added, an elimination of symptoms for several months.

Metabolism/ Weight Loss/Fat Oxidation

Cayenne pepper is an appetite suppressant that also boosts metabolism.

In a 3-month study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 2003, participants who were given 135 grams of capsaicin a day burned more body fat than those participants who were given a placebo.

While it can be taken in capsule form, other research has shown that eating it with food–actually tasting it, is most beneficial for weight loss.  Tasting it also resulted in fewer food cravings.

It is important to note that long term use may decrease cayenne’s effectiveness in weight loss, as the study conducted showed that the greatest benefit was seen in those who did not regularly eat spicy foods.


Capsaicin helps relieve the pain and itching of psoriasis by blocking the communication system of sensory nerves. Studies have also shown that capsaicin cream, used for a week or more, can result in healing the skin–no more psoriasis plaques. Be sure to avoid mucous membranes and the eyes.

Colds and Allergies

Cayenne pepper has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in quercetin, a bioflavonoid that prevents the release of histamines and other inflammatory chemicals that cause allergy symptoms. It also helps break up and loosen mucous, eases the pain of a sore throat, clears sinuses, and helps kill infection including viruses.

High Cholesterol

According to an Australian research team published in the British Journal of Nutrition, cayenne pepper dilates blood vessels and can lower cholesterol. Capsaicin causes LDL to resist oxidation for a longer period, which reduces the risks of heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke. Capsaicin also cleans the arteries, helping to flush excess LDL cholesterol and fatty triglycerides.

Blood Pressure

Cayenne is a popular home treatment for mild high blood pressure. Due to its ability to improve circulation and dilate blood vessels, cayenne works very quickly to bring down blood pressure in people who are not using drugs (like smoking tobacco) that raise the blood pressure. For the same reason, ingesting cayenne can help those who suffer from cold hands and feet.


Ointments applied topically offer temporary relief and some long-term benefits for those suffering from the pain of arthritis. Taking it internally offers benefits as well and is better for long-term results, but the effects are not as noticeable or as fast.  Capsaicin triggers the release of endorphins in the brain, which has a pain relieving effect similar to that of morphine. Check out the cayenne cream recipe above for immediate arthritis relief or try the Deep Tissue Repair Oil.


Multiple clinical studies in conducted in Japan, England, and the United States has shown capsaicin forces cancer cells to self-terminate. Ingest regularly and also, for skin cancer, apply topically. Along with a detox, a healthy diet full of fresh organic raw produce and a few other natural cancer cures, cancer is rarely something that anyone need fear. Check out our issue that we dedicated to natural cancer remedies for more information.

Ulcers and Digestive Issues

Due to the fact that cayenne pepper is spicy, many people were under the impression that it causes ulcers. This was due to the fact that most people who eat conventionally get their spicy food in the form of junk food that causes ulcerities. Avoiding junk food is imperative to anyone who wants to heal their digestive system, and capsaicin actually heals stomach and intestinal ulcers. Capsaicin improves digestion by stimulating the peristaltic movement of the intestines, helps to regulate stomach secretions, works as a pain reliever to relieve ulcer caused pains, and can reduce the amount of acid your stomach produces. Capsaicin also kills the bacteria that cause ulcers including H. pylori.  More than just a treatment for ulcers, it treats health issues such as abdominal cramps, acidity, gas and bloating. It also helps with urine elimination and bowel evacuation.


The spice can relieve heartburn and indigestion, but apple cider vinegar works faster and is much easier to take. For a serious case of indigestion, try 4 ounces of apple cider vinegar with a pinch of cayenne.

Headaches & Migraines

Cayenne tea in the morning (or cayenne in any food) can prevent headaches, including migraines. But if you need to get rid of an existing migraine, or you need to stop one that is just getting started, snorting cayenne, while “hardcore” and not for the faint of heart, is one of the few migraines remedies that has been shown to provide immediate relief for most people.

Hemorrhaging, and Open Wounds, Cuts

During the civil war, where shrapnel injuries were common, amputations were performed regularly. Some of the doctors would apply ground cayenne to the open wounds gushing with blood. But do not ingest cayenne when bleeding badly, as this is not the best time to utilize its blood thinning properties. But when used externally, cayenne pepper is a vasoconstrictor, which means it tightens the blood vessels.

On an open wound, slap copious amounts of cayenne pepper and hold it down with pressure for one minute. Within the first 10 seconds, the smaller veins and arteries will stop bleeding, and in about 60 seconds, larger arteries will slow or stop bleeding as well.

With cases of severe menstrual issues or post childbirth, women can develop uncontrolled bleeding. An old remedy was to mix one cup of warm water with 6 tablespoons of cayenne pepper. Use a turkey baster to inject the cayenne mixture into the vagina hold it in for as long as the person can stand it.

Capsaicin has other healing properties as well,and should be used to speed the healing. It reduces the likelihood of infection in small cuts. Again, it’s a great topical pain reliever.


When a person is feeling faint, light headed, and about to pass out, or just need a wake-me-up, taking cayenne orally in liquid or powdered form will snap the person to attention, and can even revive one who has completely fainted and is unconscious.

Circulation – Cardiovascular

Cayenne helps arteries, veins, and capillaries regain elasticity. It also helps regulate the flow of blood in the whole body from head to feet. Cayenne strengthens the pulse and boosts the overall health of the entire cardiovascular system. For increased energy, better detoxification, reduction of cold hands and feet, and to promote overall healing, better blood circulation is a requirement.

Heart Attack & Stroke

A heaping tablespoon of cayenne tincture (or extract) in a glass of warm water, or 10 dropperfuls (half oz.)is the treatment/dosage needed for someone having a heart attack or a stroke. If drinking a glass of fluid is not possible, apply cayenne drops directly into the mouth. This is where a more powerful extract like habanero could come in handy. The higher Scoville units of around 100,000 to 400,000 are ideal.

It’s best to know if the person suffering is on blood thinning medications before using cayenne, but with a very serious stroke or a heart attack, it really is worth the risk. See below for precautions to be aware of.

For anyone with heart conditions or at risk for a stroke, we recommend you always have Shillington’s Heart Formula. Keep it with you at all times in case of an emergency, and take two dropperfuls three times a day

Hair Regrowth

The most common cause of alopecia is poor blood circulation. Cayenne pepper, when applied topically, increases blood circulation. Start with ¼ a cup of fresh onion juice, ¼ a cup of fresh ginger juice, and 1/4 a cup of olive oil or coconut oil (may need to melt at a low heat in order to mix). Add two tablespoons of cayenne powder or a liquid cayenne. Mix well, and apply directly to scalp. If hair is long, take the time to message into scalp. This remedy works amazingly well, but it takes a few months to see the results. It’s also really good for your hair! Refrigerate when not in use, but try to use it all up within a day, as the fresher the juice, the more potent the formula.

Skin Conditions

Cayenne prevents and treats acne by increasing blood flow to the skin and by killing pimple causing fungi and bacteria. Cayenne pepper is rich in vitamin C, vitamin Em and several anti-oxidants that help to heal the epidermis. Apply topically, and ingest as well, because ingesting cayenne pepper has shown to result in a considerable decrease in acne on the skin.


Hemorrhoids are inflammation of the veins in the anus and rectum. Cayenne pepper is a powerful anti-inflammatory. You can apply directly to the affected area for best results. This will burn. It will itch. It is not pleasant. But it works faster than ingesting cayenne. We recommend doing both if you can handle it (and if possible).

Sinus Infection

Cayenne pepper is an excellent home remedy for a sinus infection. It helps to break and flush out mucus. Take a few pinches of cayenne pepper powder and dab inside your infected nostril. It’s better if you apply this remedy at night just before going to the bed.

For a serious and/or chronic sinus infection, try Shillington’s Herbal Snuff. With goldenseal root powder, bayberry bark powder, cayenne pepper powder, and garlic powder, it’s going to burn like holy hell, but it clears the sinuses and kills the infection. You can make your own (see recipe above) or purchase Shillington’s Herbal Snuff here.

Sore Throat

A very effective remedy for sore throats is to gargle with apple cider vinegar, a pinch of unrefined sea salt, and cayenne. This will not only help kill the bacteria, fungi, or virus causing the sore throat, but it will also attract blood to the tonsils to help healing.


Toothaches are caused by an infection. Kill the infection and attract blood flow to the area with a remedy that is pretty tough to take, but it works amazingly well! Take a pinch of cayenne, a few drops of clove oil, a crushed clove of garlic, and some oil of oregano, and mush and mix it all together. Apply directly to the pain, and smear around it as well. Breathe through your mouth and hold it as long as you can, but no more than 5 minutes. It’s painful, but not nearly as painful as a bad toothache, and it will provide immediate relief. Do this three times a day and your toothache will be a thing of the past.

Side Effects and Warnings

You need to stop taking cayenne (and garlic, and any other foods that thin the blood) 7 days before surgery due to the blood thinning properties.

If you are allergic to latex, bananas, kiwi, chestnuts, or avocados, you may also be allergic to cayenne.

Anyone taking blood thinner medications should avoid cayenne and other peppers with high levels of capsicum due to increased the risk of blood vessels rupturing, which may lead to uncontrolled hemorrhaging.

If large amounts of cayenne are ingested after a heart attack or stroke, there is the possibility of an increased risk of an injury known as reperfusion. When blood supply is cut off from tissues long enough, tissue death can occur due to lack of oxygen. When the blood supply is then restored, this leads to inflammation and tissue destruction in part from oxidative damage from the increase of blood and oxygen back to the tissues. It has not been proven, but in theory one could increase the damage from reperfusion injuries by increasing blood flow to the dead tissues. In our opinion the risks are worth the benefits, but the theory is sound and we would be remiss if we didn’t mention it.

The Best Herbs and Spices

I have four herbs and spices I consume regularly: Garlic, turmeric, cayenne, and ground papaya seed. Cloves and cinnamon are two more spices that I plan to do a better job of incorporating. I eat papaya seeds raw, never cooked, as the benefit is the enzymes which are killed by heat. I eat many of the other seasonings raw, too. For instance, I cook rice and beans with many seasonings and then add more after the beans are done cooking and have cooled off so I can get the raw-food health benefits. Find a good, high quality source for these herbs and spices and get them into your diet as much and as often as you can, and your health will improve dramatically.
