Elements and Tools for Spiritual Growth

Different Types of Meditation & Daily Practice

Energy Awareness Exercise

  • Relax in a quiet environment away from distractions and the pressures of time.
  • Rub your hands together briskly for a few minutes.
  • Hold your outstretched hands approximately 60cm apart.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Very slowly bring your hands closer and closer together.
  • When you feel something, stop and open your eyes.  How far apart are your hands?  What can you sense?  Is it heat? Energy? Tingling?  What are you feeling?  This feeling is called ‘clairsentience’ which means ‘clear presence’.
  • Try playing around with the energy, moving your hands around and see if you can ‘grow’ the energy by concentrating upon it.
  • Make a ball of energy between your hands.
  • Send the ball of energy with love and light to someone you know who is having a difficult time at the moment.  

You are now becoming aware of subtle energetic forces in the hand chakras which are located in the middle of the palms. These chakras are often used for hands on healing.

Some of the resources attached suggest scientific studies which you may find hard going if you're not really into science.  Other resources are much lighter.  Take your pick as to what you read.  Try to analyse the information logically and think critically about whether you accept the points of view presented.  In the end, it's up to you what you choose to believe.  I seek only to provide a snapshot of current ideas around these issues.

What are Spiritual Gifts? Where do they come from?

Setting your intention is very important. In this lecture, there are two invocations given to assist you in setting an intention:

1.  I am the Soul given in the Soul Connection video.  The diamonds or round energy centres in the body are actually 'Diamond Lights' otherwise known as chakras.

2.  The Great Invocation in the downloadable material.

You could set an intention to develop your Spiritual gifts as we will be covering some of these in the next few lectures.

Chakras & Invocation of the Soul

Various modalities can be used to pick up energies from the past, present or future.

Spiritualist,Psychic,Double Reiki Master, MBA, BA, Lic.Pilot

I have a host of experience in the spiritual and education industries, commencing in the 1980's teaching "Job Club" in a small outback town in rural Australia. Since then I have been an avid student and teacher of many disciplines throughout my entire adult life.

In the 1980's I returned to school to complete my BA majoring in Psychology and later commenced a Diploma in Counselling through Charles Sturt University by distance education. The 1990's brought Teacher Accreditation with Louise Hay Love Yourself workshops and I conducted various energy healing workshops throughout Australia, New Zealand and the US. I also studied EFT and took many courses in the USA with Dr Carol Look and Jacqui Crooks in the UK, to name just a couple of EFT Masters. 

I completed my Masters in Usui and Karuna Reiki, Diplomas of Swedish and Remedial Massage (DRM) as well as my Pilots License RPPL. I'm also a long time member of ATMS (Australian Traditional Medicine Society) and IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapies). 

In 2000 after having a reoccurring dream for months, I started Absolute Soul Secrets, a psychic network with integrity and genuine psychics.  

In 2016 I completed my MBA in Innovation and Leadership through Ducere Global Business School and the University of Canberra. I also own and operate a successful telecommunications company and I'm involved in various real estate ventures as well as The Spiritual Institute.

I have an unusual mix of spiritual and business energy and I have managed to combine these into successful businesses. I believe everyone has hidden spiritual gifts and I strive to empower people to discover these so they may fulfill their unique mission in the world. 

I regularly appear in various media including television, radio, online and in print. Recent media includes interviews for The Daily Mail, Yahoo Lifestyle, Cosmopolitan and Harpers Bazaar to name just a few. I am also available to speak at public events. You can contact me through Absolute Soul Secrets if you have a media enquiry.

I am also currently setting up a global charity.

Please peruse my courses and I hope you find something that both intrigues and excites you :)  It would be my very great honour to be your instructor and contribute to your far reaching future success.
