Looking out of the window there is a brilliant blue sky meeting the tree line which is still vibrant green. My immediate thought was Father Sky meets Mother Earth in total harmony. Inspiration is drawn from Jamie Sams and David Carson's Medicine Cards with the Turtle - in Native American teachings, Turtle is the oldest symbol for planet Earth. It is the personification of goddess energy, and we are asked to be mindful of the cycle of give and take, to give back to the Mother as she has given to us. Honour the creative source within you, be grounded to the Earth and observe your situation with motherly compassion.

Colour Esogetics
Esogetic colourpuncture is a complete system of aculight therapy developed over the past 25 years by German naturopath and acupuncturist Peter Mandel. It combines concepts of acupuncture with the latest research on the way light functions in the body coming from the field of modern biophysics. Like acupuncture, colourpuncture presupposes that the balanced flow of energy through the meridian system will support good health. However, colourpuncture achieves this by introducing vibrational information into the body in the form of different coloured light frequencies via the meridian system.   

What you've always wanted to know about Ayurveda
Ayurveda is a qualitative system based on the inherent and perceivable qualities in nature. It observes the temperature, fluidity, density, mobility of all the foods, herbs and environments we live in to understand their inherent nature. Rather than just measure ‘how much’ of ‘x’ nutrient is in a food it looks at the quality of the food; cheese is damp, heavy and cold, whereas dry Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is warm, dry, light and penetrating. Ayurveda is a sense based system that uses the experiences of sound, touch, sight, taste and aroma to diagnose the state of health. The study and observation of nature is at the heart of Ayurveda so that the sounds, sensations, colours, shapes, contours, tastes and smells of our bodies, herbs, foods and climates are the patterns by which we can understand how to be in a permanent state of moving towards balance; i.e. if you often feel cold, live in a cold country don’t eat lots of cold raw food.

The magic of Geometry
Bio-Geometry is a science that deals with the effect of geometrical shapes on life functions and the design of shapes that interact with earth's energy fields, to produce special pre-calculated effects on biological systems. It was developed by Dr lbraham F. Karim D.Sc. in Cairo, Egypt, who has been conducting research in these disciplines since 1968. The tools necessary for the measurement of the energy of geometrical shapes are based on the science of Microvibrational Physics, or Physical Radiesthesia, as it was named by the French radiesthesists, Chaumery and De Belizal around the years 1930-1940, (and later developed by Dr. Karim. Research in Bio-Geometry was, and still is, mainly dedicated to the development of a new form of architecture that would enhance the human biological system and give a new meaning to the concept of Home.

The Sacred Space Within
Shirlie Roden says " The Swiss scientist Hans Jenny discovered that when the sound aum or ohm was sung into an electronic transmitter the sound waves create an intricate star-like pattern, virtually identical to a yantra used for centuries in the East to represent the aum. If we break down the sounds of aum we have ah for the grounding, earthing, anchoring of creation, u or o (because u turns into o as it leads into the m) for the vibration of eternity, and mmmm for the movement of sound. This is why aum is called the mantra of mantras, the sound of the beating of God's heart, in perfect equilibrium: because it contains everything there is.  

Self Healing
In David Hoffmann's Holistic Herbal he tells us, "The word healing has it roots in the Greek word 'holos', the same word that has given us 'whole' and 'holistic'. Healing is the expression of wholeness, health is wholeness. The experience and expression of this quality can only come from within the individual, it never comes from an outer source such as a therapist or teacher. Just as all paths of spiritual development tell us to look within so for our healing we must look to our inner selves.  Health is also the expression of integrated being that a person embodies. The emotions, thought-life and spiritual flow are as important to health as is the state of organs and tissues within the body

Physical Healing with Gold
According to Lilian Verner-Bonds there are no parts of the body connected to gold, which is an offshoot of yellow, but it can be seen in some auras. Gold energy soothes the nerves, and bestows an overall feeling of well-being. Gold means "I am" - it helps me to come to terms with what is. Thus it is good for depression, during menopause, which is based on a reluctance to let go of the menstrual pattern, and a feeling of being worthless as a female. Physically, the colour gold is good for digestive irregularities, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatics, and underactive thyroids. It is also beneficial for rashes and skin irritations.
