Head, neck and shoulder massage anyone?
Spending time cleaning out and re arranging and look who has snuck in for a massage!
This is my 16 year old boy, he’s not allowed in the Awen room at all normally. I’m showing a bit of compassion today as he just seems so happy by my side.
Sometimes all you need is a different point of view. 💚🍃

I spent time in my garden today. The sun softly kissing my cheeks, the chickens clucking gently, it was a divine moment where everything felt perfect.
Staying present carries many blessings.
No matter where you are sitting in the grand scheme of things , know that love is the glue that keeps us together.

To support all that I am that doing in the Awen room to prevent contamination. There is nothing I care about more then the health an wellbeing of my family, friends and clients. 💙🙏🏻
Playing the role of happy home maker is such a joy for me. I love cooking when I can take my time and enjoy the process. Here we have a test run of vegan pot pies for a meditation retreat I am running. They smell delicious 😋
Taking time to breathe 🌞📿💙🌀
🍂🍁AUTUMN OFFER!🍂🍁 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
All set up for this evening’s Journey of Discovery class.
This is beautiful mercury. ✨
This gorgeous looking planet is now in retrograde. This means that from the earth it appears to be traveling backwards.
If you follow astrology, you may have heard that this can cause all sorts of hiccups. Mercury rules communication, so when it is retrograde, we seem to experience all sorts of interference in this area. Emails can go missing, the written and spoken word can be misinterpreted, computers and phones can play up, apps can go missing on your phone. It is also know to impact travel, causing interruptions, and electrical items have a habit of breaking down.
Many people have a little freak out whenever mercury is in retro, but here is another point of view.
When a planet is in retrograde, it’s traits present themselves to you at an internal level. To get the most out of mercury in retrograde, look at your internal communication. Have a conversation with yourself before making decisions, listen to that beautiful inner dialogue that we all have and really hear what it is saying.
This can be a good time to journal, and insight might shine through in doing so.
Double check all of your travel plans, as well as any documents that you sign, or other communication, particularly the written word or anything you put up on line.
You might like to take note of the way this planet effects you so that you are aware of your reaction next time round. If you are wondering how long this will last? Retrograde will end on 18 March, but there will be a period of transition before you feel everything is right again.
Of all the planets, we often feel the impact of Mercury’s retrograde most, it will happen 4 times this year so use it to your advantage.
Have a gorgeous day everyone!
How Are You Feeing?
More often than not we say good thanks, before reflecting back to the person asking the question.
I want you to sit and seriously ask the question……. How often do you really tell anyone how you are feeling, honestly?
Perhaps you may like to take time today to ask you self,” How am I feeling right now?” Can you even answer this question honestly when you ask yourself? Or, are you programmed to just push any uncomfortable thoughts and feelings to the side get on with the daily grind, no matter what?
Taking time to check in with how you are feeling, physically, emotionally and spiritually is the first step to taking care of yourself. You might like to schedule time to do this once per week, to really stay on top of your well-being.
Often my clients book in for a massage or a student may come to class as way of dealing with stress, anxiety, depression which is defiantly a good idea. However, often they wait until crisis point, before seeking support.
I can tell you from personal experience as well as from a professional perspective, ongoing maintaince of all aspects of our wellbeing can prevent crisis point being reached. Enabling us to feel well most, if not all of the time.
I am always happy to chat with people who would like ideas about self care. My personal routine consists of the following:
My main goal is to live a long, happy life in a natural holistic way. A secondary goal I have is to share the ways I do this with anyone who will listen. I am a person who in the past, has been very, very unwell. Health, physical, mental and spiritual is an asset, one that we must look after with tender love and care. A gift bestowed upon each of us, the day we were born. My father used to say that every second that goes by, is a part of life that you never get back. Live well. Say happy.
So, how are you really feeling?
The difference between a flower and a weed is judgment
One of my favorite rituals on a day in the Awen room is to take care of the small details within the space.
I love setting up, my treatment room to insure my clients receive an experience that stimulates all of the senses.
Creating and then holding a space for my clients and students to let go of their every day life and surrender to a deeper connective experience is my aim with every every single appointment. 💙🙏🏻 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
First day back for 2020.
I’m so grateful to be here in this space.

How is your skin feeling after being subjected to all of the smoky air of late? Mine has been dry, flaky and my pores are clogged and mucky. My moisturiser seems to sit on top of my skin, instead of soaking in like it normally would. It’s time to up the anti and change my skin care routine a little to combat the pollution and its effect on us.
Today I’m treating myself to a deep cleansing facial, and really focusing on hydrating my body with cleansing water and coconut water. Then I will increase regular exfoliation over the next few weeks and change my mask to a weekly hydration mask to help retain moisture.
Exfoliating helps slough those dead skin cells away leaving skin clean and fresh, enabling it to readily absorb any serums or moisturisers that you use.
If you are not exfoliating already. Try adding this to your cleansing routine once a week to begin with. If you need any further advice, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Awen is closed u til 7 January, but I am always available for personal care tips and advice.
Have a gorgeous day! Celebrate for a moment as word on the street is that the Grose Vally Fire is currently contained. Keep an eye on it though.
Love to all of you
Lots of love to you all over the holiday period!

Lavender is just such a beautiful flower, It reminds me to love freely and my grandmother did, to leave behind an unconditional essence of care and kindness, to trust my inner goddess as she always guides me in the perfect direction and to take time to be still without distraction.

Last night we worked with the Throat Chakra, such a challenge for so many. Sharing your truth through communication is a gift, not only for others but also for your beautiful self 💙💙
What a beautiful gift from a lovey client. Sometimes feeling appreciated is the wonderful medicine, even when you don’t realise that you need a boost. 💕 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
A GIFT FOR THE MUMMAS!💕
I’ve been on the road for a few days checking out University and accommodation in Melbourne with my daughter (Helena). Why my husband has been a open days with our my son (Trev) in Sydney. With both of our children possibly starting adult education next year changes are certainly on the horizon.
I am also a student so I understand the excitement and nerves they will face. I am thankful for my meditation and ritual practices which are keeping my feet in the ground during this transformational time of motherhood.
Cautious to help, guide and love, but not take over, I schedule time for study, Awen, admin and last but by far, not least time for myself. This time for us is uncertain. With babes possibly flying the nest, I am prompted to consider my role as a parent, when to set free and and when to hold close these precious young adults.
I’m looking forward to arriving home, having a warm ritual shower, smudging my home and self, and taking some time to breathe.
These are the moments that are impossible to imagine when you first hold your tiny baby in your arms. Motherhood is indeed a magical experience, I am grateful every single day.
💕So all you mums, let’s celebrate ourselves this week, and the awesome way we keep it together! Mention ‘mother1’ in the notes section of your booking and receive a $10 voucher rouse at your next treatment.💕
✨✨✨BOOK 6 MASSAGES, GET THE 7th FREE✨✨✨
Regular massage is great way to keep those happy hormones circulating through your system, as well as keeping muscles supple easing tension.
Rather then waiting until you feel run down, exhausted or stressed to the max I recommend fortnightly or at least monthly treatments to enhance your wellbeing.
Once upon a time I thought of massage as a luxury, perhaps getting a treatment a few times a year. It wasn’t until a long period of grief and illness, that I decided to try massage as a way to relax and nurture my body, mind and spirit on a regular basis. I started weekly, then moved to fortnightly.
My mood gently began to lift, I could think more clearly, the grief and tension I carried in my shoulders eased and then went away totally. My headaches stopped, my minds chatter slowed down, I felt I had something to look forward to and my depression lifted.
Along with movement, meditation, and healthy eating, massage is a staple in my routine to this day. It made such a difference to my life that I made a totally career change so that I could share the benefits with others that I found myself.
Don’t wait until you are sore, tense depressed, anxious. Get regular treatments and notice the difference.
To get you started, I have a special offer for you. Book 6 Massages over a 6 month period and receive the 7th FREE!
Pay as you go or pay up front, it’s up to you!

Feel like a massage or a facial?
A 12:30 pm space has just opened for Wednesday!
Be quick! 💙
Human touch, it’s magic. It gets feel good endorphins flowing and is scientifically proven to relieve, stress, depression, anxiety and grief.
When is the last time you allowed yourself to surrender to the power of human touch? Surrendering is the key here. Letting go and just allowing a cuddle, massage, or touch of another human can be difficult and often counterproductive without giving yourself permission to let go and get out of your head.
Once you master it, it will change your life. 💙🙏🏻
Find someone to have a cuddle with or get a massage from today! 🥰 🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰🤗🥰 (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
It feel like magic here today! ❄️❄️❄️ (at Awen Natural Therapies Leura)
A sneak peek into my lounge room, and I see 2 well loved doggies living the life. They really know how to relax. Perhaps the universe is telling me that I should take a note from their books. 🙏🏻😊💕
