The Law of Attraction!

Some more positives we should look at:

Attitude is one.

Your Attitude determines your Altitude! .. Anon.

This quote is anonymous, but I have heard it so often from one man I truly admire, Mr Val Fittler, that I always attribute this saying to him.

Mr Fittler, 25 years ago began a family business in Australia based on the philosophy:

“We believe in people and their dreams, and in their unlimited potential to achieve them” and also: “To uplift, inspire and encourage people from all walks of life, to lead more worthwhile and meaningful lives”

Could there ever be a better business (and life!) philosophy?

Mr Fittler’s attitude to his business, his work and his personal life are quite inspiring to me. Over the many years I have been associated with him and have attended many trainings with him, I feel I have gotten to know him and his lovely family quite well. He has often been head of the DSA (Direct Selling Association) of Australia and is a renowned public speaker.

“Your Attitude determines Your Altitude” is a favourite quote, and one he really aspires to.

For a long time, I didnt understand this quote .. then, surprisingly, as my attitude became more positive, it really began to make clear sense to me.

I truly believe, that when you are ready to take a step on whichever road you are travelling, the teacher will always appear.

So, practically then, you must decide and begin your journey yourself .. then so much information (which you may have been quite *blind* to) will suddenly *appear* on your radar. The law of attraction is at it again!

You will attract into your life, that which you think about.

Your mental and emotional health is also dependent upon your attitude.

“A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.”

Take Charge of your Health!

I lost a lovely friend this week .. She was an interesting, funny, intelligent, big hearted clever lady who was always there to listen, whether you were just chatting or having a whinge (it made no difference to her) She was there for you.

I miss Avie already. When my own Mum died 4 years ago, Avril kinda took her place in my heart .. now there is just a big empty space.

Avril was a smoker .. had been since she was a teenager during the war. She thought, much like my Mum did, that although smoking was bad for them  “I know that” – they’d both admit, but because they hadn”t had any ill effects up to now they thought probably they weren’t going to  ..

Avril had a bad heart attack 4 years ago .. and seemed to have “recovered” .. she gave up smoking, for a while. But I think she started again once she thought the immediate danger was over.

She died from Cancer of the lungs which spread horrifyingly quickly. She had no chance to do anything once it was discovered. She was just 69, with many plans and hopes and dreams unfulfilled.

Mum had PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) which mainly affected her liver. Mum hardly ever drank water. “I get plenty of water with my tea” she’d say. Even when we came to Australia, she wouldnt change her ways, though I would often encourage her to do so.

Mums PKD got worse as she hit her late 60’s. She’d had several “attacks” down in Pemberton .. where she recovered by herself, drinking only lemon juice and.. you guessed it, water! As soon as she felt well enough, she’d be back onto her never ending cup of tea. She also continued to smoke.

She thought because she could still go for a decent walk and do a days work, that she was fine .. Why didnt she just continue on with the lemon juice and the water? Such a simple thing to incorporate into her daily life .. She could have also given up smoking then .. It would have made such a difference. She did eventually give up smoking (but too late) yet did nothing pro-active to try and improve her health.

Once, when she was in hospital she said to me “I should have listened to you Lizzy – and drank more water” .. it made me sad to hear her say it .. I should have been more forceful, more persuasive.

PKD is a genetic disease, however, we now know that genes can be switched off and on by certain things ..

Smoking detroys the body’s innate health and its ability to take care of itself, and would have most certainly contributed to her decline. Drinking more water would probably have given her a longer healthier life. We all know that Water is the “River of Life”

She also died with unfulfilled ambition, hopes and dreams.

Such a waste of two wonderful people ..

You are responsible for your Health .. not the Drs, or your mother, or your wives or partners .. You! .. and you will wear the consequences, good or bad!

At the very least, there are two things you can do –

Walk Daily

Drink Water, Lots of it! (Adding fresh lemon juice is great too!)

One thing you shouldnt do, Do Not Smoke!

What else can you do to improve your health?

Inner Leaf Aloe Vera juice & a high quality Vit C are two supplements you can take that can assist your body to “re-balance and to normalize”  itself. If you take nothing else, these give you an wonderful, easy to digest, nutritional boost and will help enormously, no matter what your problem is.

If you live in Australia, you can get them here http://skincare-dynamics.promastore.com.au/aloejuice

(If you live elsewhere, send a comment and I will tell you where you can find Pure Inner Leaf Aloe Vera Juice and High Quality Vitamin C in your country)

If you already have disease, they will support your body and help it to heal itself and they will also lessen the pain and symptoms. It doesnt matter what your problem is – They work .. they just do. They are both natural anti-inflamatories and will not cause further problems by taking them. By all means, check with your Dr, but do something Pro-Active for yourself, now!

My Journey to Health

This is an exciting time for me .. I have begun a journey I think I was always destined to take .. since I was old enough to realise that I was different to my siblings in so many ways, but particularly my health .. I have struggled thru pain all my life ..sometimes indeterminate, seemingly indiscriminate and variously situated .. but almost constant pain somewhere, which I wont elaborate on here, but will put it in a side post, just as a reference. Also to document where I am coming from and what makes me tick.- and what has now improved and is healing for me.

I knew if I was ever going to be well, it would be up to me to make it happen, therefore, I have always been interested in what makes the human body tick.

How does it work? What do we need to do to get it and keep it running well? .. this goes with this, goes with this, goes with that .. Looking at the body as a whole and trying to work with it .. What has become a lifelong passion of mine, to study the basic mechanics of the body, was fanned to a flame by a wonderful High School Biology teacher, who also had a passion for her topic.

Later I learned all I could about foods and good nutrition  (I know that our Creator or Higher Being would not put us on the earth without everything we need and the means to stay well – After all, we are such beautifully made creatures, what would be the point otherwise?)

I truly believe that there is a food or a fruit or a vegetable or a herb somewhere, which will help to heal and repair any ailment or accident – we just need to find and learn from, those with the knowledge, which is often *old* knowledge, passed down thru the ages.

I have a girlfriend called Zophia, from Slovenia, whose mother was a renowned herbalist. Zophia has learned much from her, some of which I am fortunate enough that she has passed on to me. Some traditional and ancient remedies .. not found in books or writings, but passed down thru experience and oral history.

I have collected some old *medical* and text books which have some interesting remedies for *what ails you* .. usually beginning either with an Emetic (to make you vomit) or with an Enema or a Sitz bath, to stimulate the digestion, the colon and the bowel .. Now we know that many dis-eases begin in the digestive tract, so they were right on the money!

Another old book, *Back to Eden*, a large paperback, which I referred to and used often when my children were young, seems to have disappeared somewhere and is very sorely missed.

The journey I have now come to  is a more systematic approach to wellness – a study of wholefood medicine and traditional remedies, re-discovered and dusted off from ancient writings and studied over many years by a man called Don Tolman, affectionately known as *The Wholefood Medicine Man*

Given access to ancient papyrus scrolls, traditional and revered tribal writings and much knowledge and wisdom from many and varied cultures, Don Tolman has learned and is now teaching, Self Care and Self Education as the keys to happier lives and vibrant health. Looking after our bodies as a temple and being responsible for our own well-being is Don’s Message .. and its spreading like wildfire.

This is day one of my journey .. I hope you will share it with me ..
