I have helped 1000’s of women find an outfit which celebrates what they have! Every shape, size and age you can imagine. The biggest hurdle they ALL had to overcome was being able to see they have gorgeous features.

It is my personal mission to help you discover your very own unique feminine style, so you not only look amazing but feel truly gorgeous about who you are.

I need help, I don’t know HOW to sort out my wardrobe! I’m unsure what is good and what isn’t. I am unsure on what suits me and my wardrobe is chaos. I constantly feel like I have nothing to wear!!

The truth is I don’t need to live in your wardrobe. You just need strategies to understand HOW to get your wardrobe, style and shopping sorted once and for all!! When you understand how to identify styles which suit you will have the confidence to build a versatile wardrobe full of value.

I want to teach you what I know, I want to support you and help you to see that you are gorgeous! I want you to get dressed in the morning and LOVE what you see.

The Art of Healing

      Comments Off on The Art of Healing

By Rob Gray MAPS, Director, Centre for Educational and Clinical Art Therapy
Read the full article at www.psychology.org.au

download-6Picture a patient sitting across from a therapist, unable to voice her innermost thoughts; unable to vocalise her hidden shame; unwilling, even in this safe haven, to speak aloud the fears that have plagued her since childhood.

Now imagine the same patient given a blank sheet of paper, a bottle of glue and a stack of pictures – pictures of people, pictures that express emotion, pictures of nature, and pictures that appear as one thing to one person and something else to another.

Given the freedom to express herself with art rather than words, the client opens up. She remembers her earliest days, when pencils and crayons gave her the freedom to express herself without the complication of words. Encouraged to create, both then and now, she subconsciously lets her guard down, and with it, allows her emotions to stream forward like a raging river. This is psychology and creativity melded together in a counselling context. This is art therapy.

The unique relationship between art and psychology, which both have potential for conflict and healing, can make defining art therapy difficult. Consequently, some art therapists practice primarily according to the principle that the process itself is the main healing effect (‘art as therapy’), whereas others focus on the unconscious material and the exploration of the deeper meaning of the artwork (‘art in therapy’).

In ‘art as therapy’ approaches, drawing is the main focus. Something emerges that can be experienced rationally, emotionally, spiritually or physically. The therapist also can ask clients how they felt while drawing and how this relates to their life. The emphasis is about the process, not the content of the artwork.

In ‘art in therapy’ approaches, the client explores the deeper meaning of the picture by describing what she actually sees in the picture and not what she thinks about the picture. This is often the part of art therapy when the unconscious becomes conscious, and clients realise just how connected everything in their lives is.

A great inspiration for many art therapists is Freud’s frustration with words. He noted: “We experienced it [a dream] predominantly in visual images…part of the difficulty of giving an account of dreams is due to our having to translate these images into words. ‘I could draw it,’ a dreamer often says to us, ‘but I don’t know how to say it.’” (Freud, 1916-1917; p. 90). Some ideas are difficult or impossible to put into words. Clients who can externalise their trauma, for example by drawing it on paper, can experience relief.

Images represent an alternative medium for expression and communication. Once experiences are externalised as images, it is easier to talk about them by describing the artwork or talking about the art-making process. For some people, however, producing images can be embarrassing or a destructive experience, and clients may try to avoid or resist it regardless of its beneficial potential. Despite this reluctance, the concept behind art therapy is that sharing the meaning of images may lead to a better understanding of the client’s presenting problem and create change.

As a psychologist and art therapist, I often find that clients open up vocally after drawing. I would like to use the well-known metaphor of an iceberg to describe the two major aspects of human personality. The tip of the iceberg that extends above the water represents the conscious mind. Beneath the water is the much larger bulk of the iceberg, which represents the unconscious. Words come easier to clients’ minds and unconscious material pours quickly to the surface once they start describing their images.

Surprisingly, most current art therapists challenge Freud’s view of symbols which frequently occur in images as products of repressed unconscious conflicts. Symbols relate to transforming and integrating personal experiences, both pathological and healthy, and should not be seen in isolation, but connected to the client’s individual experiences.

A highly regarded art therapy lecturer from Germany, Robert Gray has degrees in art therapy, psychology and theology. As a psychologist, he is able to present art therapy practices in an evidence-based context which further facilitates a well-founded and comprehensible training program. He leads the field in art therapy with his unique integration of psychological techniques and spiritual practices. Robert is the founder and director of the College for Educational and Clinical Art Therapy.

Rob is a speaker at the ABNLP 2017 Australian NLP Conference taking place in Sydney, 25-26 February.


How can I be on a spiritual path in this material world?

      Comments Off on How can I be on a spiritual path in this material world?

By Laureli Blyth

1a7b6fc5d169109e93601a583ced07e9Why is it so tempting to see the world, and everything in it, as only material substance, with no deeper qualities?  Perhaps it is because we have created a habit of seeing ourselves as purely material. You may be aware of or know that you have a spirit a soul, but your general way of understanding yourself may be limited to a mostly material definition of reality.

When you become aware of your spiritual essence within yourself, it becomes easier to also recognize this spiritual essence in the world around you. It reminds me of the movie Avatar. How the natives were so connected to themselves, each other, the land the plants the animals.  How amazing that seemed and also so right. I think we started out this way eons ago, but got distracted.

When we are distracted we have a limited perspective. This then blocks awareness of the living divine essence that vibrates within everything in this world.

To practice this awareness takes conscious direction from yourself. To allow yourself to behold the divinity in self, others and all things. Even things that you are not attracted to. Learning how to see the spark of divinity, even within those who seem to be negative. Perhaps they are disconnected from their own inner divine spark, but it does not mean it does not exist.

Spiritual consciousness is your essence — it exists at the deepest core of your being. Whether you acknowledge it or not, your essence is within you, quietly awaiting your discovery.

So what gets in the way of our knowing who we really are? What keeps us from our truly infinite and spiritual nature?

I think one thing that makes us forget our true nature as spiritual beings is our own inner thoughts. From the time we are very young, we devote most of our life’s energy and attention to our thoughts. Because thoughts are so automatic and in our awareness, we assume that we must pay attention to and believe them.  We are conditioned to believe that we are our thoughts. But this is a false assumption. Thoughts appear and we can choose to believe them—or not.

What if you believed you were the witness of your thoughts? Most people use their thoughts to rationalize, fix, analyse, and contemplate and often over think. The truth is you never solve a problem by thinking about it. Thinking is way over-rated. With our attention focused on the stream of thoughts we are always hearing, we become disconnected from our senses. This is important because it is the senses that are the portal to our own presence, our basic being, our spirit. We can’t know our true and infinite nature through thought. In fact, our fixation with thoughts obscures us from this knowing, this timeless wisdom.

Solutions come when you stop thinking. The flash of inspiration, intuition, knowing how to do,  come when you ‘let it go’. When you are day dreaming, meditating, dreaming, and when this happens we become connected.

As someone wise once said: knowledge speaks and wisdom listens. Where is your wisdom? It’s in that inner voice that waits patiently for you to listen, it the spiritual core of you. Come learn more with me in February at the 2017 NLP Conference in Sydney!

A Spiritual Journey

      Comments Off on A Spiritual Journey

By Laureli Blyth

fca005b2362f2c105fc1c49950c6bb31Have you ever had an experience when you knew there was more to life and the world than you were living? Do you remember when you were first curious, open, interested in the unknown world? Sometimes there is something that triggers this desire to know or learn, either way an unfolding happens.

My earliest years were with adults in a sheltered, conservative, strong Christian family. Very isolated on a farm in the middle of the plains of Colorado. I had to rely upon myself for entertainment. Nothing like the world we live in today. I had a friend who would come be with me who was a woman that called herself Sheba. (no one else could see her, but they would watch me talk to her.) She would tell stories of the yonder world and of places to visit when I got big. She also led me to ‘see and know things that were to come.’ Sheba would give me information when the family needed warnings. There were many times when I didn’t realize the impact of her messages until I witnessed the reactions from the adults. As I got older I knew she was an angelic guide that helped to prepare me for my life. I am forever grateful for being allowed that beginning and to remember the connection the stories and the great platform it gave me.

I always knew that life was grander than the small worlds people lived in. I knew if I had a need or wanted guidance I could rely on the messages from within. I had to figure out a way of turning off my ‘sensitive awareness,’ so I could function without picking up other peoples’ energies. I found a way to be what I call ‘neutral’, so I was not off nor on and yet I could shift to either easily. I also knew that there was a greater me overseeing my life.

They say energy flows where attention goes and I think this accounts for the many occurrences I have experienced.

One of my most vivid was when I was about 12. My science teacher came in with some stories about a lady who was hypnotised at the university hospital. The teacher had a colleague who lent him a tape of some of the hypnotic sessions. I can still remember how exciting this was for me. This was in the 60’s when the tapes were as big as dinner plates and the equipment to run it had two huge reel to reel tracks. The psychiatrist preformed a ‘new’ type of therapy –hypnosis. The session went back to when the lady was a baby in a crib then – bang, she was speaking in a Irish brogue and talking about a complete different existence. Later I found out this was the famous ‘Bridie Murphy’ tapes. Who knows, we may have even been listening to the originals. My point is this opened another avenue of possibilities to contemplate. Was there an after-life, a past life, and future life. It is uncanny that this event even took place in such a small, conservative town and yet it was a pivotal point of my pathway.

Being curious lead me to search and research many various avenues of what I’d call the ‘spirit’ world. Numerology has been an amazing set of understanding, exploring past lives, understanding chakras, meditation, breath work, using 6th sense, ancient shamanic practices, energy work, healing, dreams, NLP, and a huge variety of esoteric studies.

My spiritual journey has been a place of expansive calm, peace an all-ness. It was never of ghosts, or scary things, it was the light, bright flow of consciousness. I am excited that there are possibilities and even more to learn, be curious about and to share.  I hope to meet you in February at the 2017 NLP Conference in Sydney!
