Another BIG Month?!

Can you believe it’s only four weeks till Christmas??!!

Wow….the year just keeps rolling away.

Over the last month I squeezed in one last October Business Month Mad Hatter’s High Tea in Katherine, which was attended by some lovely local women…whom I hope to cross paths again in the future.

Connie (Naturopathic student) assisted me for the month…gaining knowledge & confidence, plus getting an insight into everyday life as a Naturopath. I thank her & wish her well for her future.

My Certified Organic Herbal Teas are jumping onto…& off the shelves sooo quickly! You can now find them for a cuppa in-store or take home packs at Kings Wholefood Artisan  at CDU Palmerston & Chantilly Kitchen Tearoom in Nightcliff; Bits4Bub store has those specific for mums & bubs, while Harvest Press have a variety ready to go for the those wanting to support everyday health & wellbeing – both at Coolalinga Central. Plus…Cafe Eco in the city have them ready to  go on their shelves for opening day!!

The GK Vitality Ladies Pamper Lunch last weekend was a great opportunity for women to come together with friends….to enjoy a light lunch & glass of wine….whilst experiencing some amazing products on display by some beautiful local business ladies. If you missed out….don’t worry it will be back early next year bigger & better!!

Next week….Friday 1st December, I will be at the Woodroffe Primary Christmas Market from 5:30-8:30pm…..with a special visit from Santa at 7pm!! There will be food trucks, raffles, live music & heaps of Christmas gift ideas….all for a gold coin donation for entry. Love to see you there!!

New Clients Needed….Katherine??!!

As you all probably know….I’ve been travelling to Katherine once a month for well over 18mths now. I started doing this as I had several locals had tried my certified organic herbal teas at Malak Marketplace & asked if I could come to town to support their health.

I truly love going down there each month to assist this beautiful community….but it needs to be sustainable for me to continue. Yes…I’ve helped many people, hence why they no longer need my help!! From stress, gut concerns, persistent colds/flu’s, hormone balancing, pain relief, children’s health & emotional support. This is an amazing feeling & this is why I do what I do…to see positive results after people taking control of the lives & health again. I definitely plan to be finishing out the year in Katherine…..but will need to see how things go in the New Year.

So if you know anyone who is open to natural therapies in Katherine & who would benefit from herbal & nutritional support or Flower Essences for their health & wellbeing, please pass on my details.

Thank You for Your Support…..Love & Light, Kristy x

Feeling Vulnerable….or Avoiding Reality

Wattle

Sometimes we may feel vulnerable….our focus scattered & lacking awareness of what’s really going on in ‘our’ world. Wattle Flower Essence can help to support a more mature & alert approach to circumstances – so we avoid unnecessary dangers.

It helps to steady the mind & face up to the consequences of our behaviour. To have a wise view of Life. The yellow colour brings joy & positivity to the circumstances. I found wattle in bloom everywhere on my recent trip to Perth.

Today I know but little

tomorrow I will know more.

Each step will bring me closer

to understanding

what lies beneath so many veils & layers,

which keys fit in which doors.

 

If you’d like to experience how Flower Essences may support you during emotional or challenging times….book an appointment with me today. For $125 for an initial consult (private health fund rebates available), you will get a personalised bottle of Flower Essences to support you along with the meditation poems to further enhance them into your life.

Life…

How is it our lives get soo busy….

Catching up with family & friends over the last 2 weeks back in Perth, has allowed me to reflect on how our lives sometimes move forward slowly & at other times…life seems to jump ahead. It seems some people are at that ‘constant stage’ – daily routine, lots of running around for kids, work…with a little bit thrown in for them. Others have something new happening every other month. We all move at different paces…at different stages of our life. Hence…when we compare ourselves to another we can sometimes feel we ‘have been left behind’. Please remember – we really can’t compare…we just are where we ‘are’ at this point in time.

My main focus of my trip was to spend time with my grandparents – my Nan is in a home as she has dementia. Unfortunately she has regressed quickly within a year ago from when I last saw her…though she seems to recognise my voice?! LOL! Norma introduced me to natural health when I was a little girl – we’d make pot pourri, soaps, & ‘smelly’ gifts with her essential oils. On my last visit with my dad & grandpa I took along a small heart shaped pouch filled with her pot pourri she’d made probably 30 years ago. I encouraged her to smell it…hoping her memories would come flooding back to her. I can only hope she sensed the familiarity….

My Grandpa is a lovely old man…yes he’s lost a lot of weight & is frail, but he is still sharp as a tack with a great sense of humour & much to my amazement doesn’t even have a carer looking after him at his own home. My aspiration is to live as long as his active life. Yes he’s on some medications…but who isn’t at nearly 94 years old. He still takes his fish oil, magnesium etc …& a glass of wine at dinner. He’s recently been put on oxygen overnight & when needed – but he’s still very independent, & texts me often. He has nature at his doorstep with birds visiting each day & he loves his beautiful garden.  He says he feels his time is done…now is his time to share stories of his life – with so many tales to tell.

Life…it goes round in circles. Changing from one stage, to the next. Life to me is for living a full & happy life – not just existing day to day.

Yes….we all choose our own paths, now…make the most of each beautiful step you take.

Lets Talk About Sex Baby….

Ever since 1990 when Salt ‘n’ Pepa brought this song out, it seems it’s been a little easier to talk about sex – whether with our friends, siblings or partners.

Who went to the “I Love the 90’s” concert???!!

Check out the video below…..

Lets Talk About Sex Video (‘old school’)

Whilst I see many fertility couples…where sometimes intimacy can become just about ‘timing to make a baby’…it’s also a healthy part of your relationship.

It seems from recent research in the ‘Journal of Personality & Social Psychology’ there are generally two types of couples when it comes to intimacy satisfaction.

There are those who believe in ‘sexual destiny’ where once they find their soulmate, sexual satisfaction will just happen. Then there are those that believe in ‘sexual growth’ & work on their mutual satisfaction.

Both heterosexual & same-sex couples were interviewed, & it seems there’s a common 2-3 year ‘honeymoon’ phase where both ‘destiny’ & ‘growth’ believers have high sexual satisfaction.

However, as the relationship begins to ebb & flow, it seems the ‘growth’ couples have happier times. They are less stagnant in their relationship & talk about what they really like with each other.

So it seems…just like any type of relationship…we really just need to be honest with what we’re feeling to get the most out of it.   😉
