FROM THE FOUNDER Welcome to our Autumn edition of Lightworker Advocate magazine. Well, the winds of change have once again swept through our wonderful magazine! Iâ€™ve recently embarked on applying my Lightworking talents to the recruitment industry and have a bit less energy to spend on the magazine. However, this was a fabulous opportunity to invite new energy into our magazine. We now have a content co-ordinator and Carolyn King has joined us to help the magazine continue to thrive. When I read this edition, I can honestly say that my soul sang. With every word and story, I felt myself lift and then lift some more. I am so proud to have the help that I have to continue this magazine to be a great lifter of your Spirits.

FROM THE EDITOR
As I write this it is the day of the Autumn Equinox and a super full moon! Amazing how the cycles can play a big part in our lives. Just like the cycles of this magazine! Every edition I have worked on has helped me heal an aspect of my own life and more often then not I am in need of each article that comes my way. The principles have an energy of their own and the Lightworker Advocate feels to me like its own being, helping to bring light to the collective consciousness and the cycle we are currently in, regardless of month, season or timezone. Each magazine also brings it's own vibe, it's own theme and some amazing new content each time. I always feel humbled by what I read as I carefully add each article to the Lightworker Advocate. Each one gives me a different feel, love, experience and a a somewhat connection to the writer and what may have been feeling as they wrote their piece. I applaud them all for sharing their honesty, their integrity and their wisdom with myself and all who read them. Thank you! I wonder what the next cycle will bring! Until then, enjoy this Autumn April Edition! You will not be disappointed!

LIGHTWORKER PRINCIPLES #1 HONESTY Without it, we live a lie. With it, we can begin to live the truth of why we are here.
#2 OPEN MINDEDNESS Without it, we live in fierce judgement and narrow-mindedness. With it we are open and accepting of all the resources we need to contribute towards our enlightenment and the growing consciousness of a better world.
Wthout it, we are resistant. With a bit of a sprinkle of willingness we can move mountains. We invite Spirit into the very nature and fabric around our every decision.
Without it, we stay stuck in toxic recycled garbage, our hearts clamouring to be let out of their prison. With it, we are free to move on, let go of the past and to love with an open heart.
Without it we feel alone, separate, abandoned & narcissistic. With it we allow ourselves to connect with the infiniteness inside everyone & together we can co-create with harmony. Competition dissolves. Cross pollination emerges.
Without it we are easily distracted and led astray. With it we are able to listen to our guidance and follow the next step we are guided to do - even if that is all we know to be true.
Without it we don't trust and we are cynical. With it, we are able to take big leaps knowing that we are always safe 100% of the time in the truest sense of the word. Spirit always has our back, even when we feel we have been let down, with faith we are able to see all experiences are in our highest good.
Without it, we blame and obsess about what others have done to us or others. With it we can stop playing the victim card, pick ourselves up and start to create the life we really want to live, free from oppression and start to role model the change we want to see.
Without it, we fear and we hate. With it, we are able to see the cry for love in any given situation and it melts our cold hearts. We are able to love ourselves enough to stand up for what we know we deserve.
Without it we feel broken. With it we feel that anything we perceive is a lack, really holds an unforeseen gift. We are able to practise self-love, self-protection, self-care, self-awareness and self-moderation.
Without it it we feel depressed and take life too seriously. With it we find meaning in our life purpose and have a lightfilled view of every situation.
Without it we feel unrest, anxiety, we fear boredom and we thrive on drama. With it we know that every decision that comes from a place of peace creates more peace. We become a profound transformational presence of peace.
GETTING HONEST WITH MONEY MASTERY COVER STORY CHRIS CHILDS / PRINCIPLE HONESTY / WORDS BY MICHELLE LIGHTWORKER You don’t know what you don’t know. You can’t change what you can’t see. So let’s get honest about our finances! The state of our finances are a reality, whether we want to face them or not. You may read this and think the worst. However, what if it was the other way round? What if you could accomplish more than you could ever imagine RIGHT NOW with your finances to set you up for life? Impossible? Just ask Chris Childs. This money maker magician has the ability to see way beyond what your current consciousness may see. There are so many legitimate choices that you have right now that you may not even be aware of that will not only save your financial skin, but will excite you. I met Chris late last August, just before embarking on a 5 week European vacation. I had no idea what the potentiality was of my financial situation until I met her and listened. The only thing going for me that I can remotely say was on the positive side with regards to money was my ‘No fear’ approach to life. As many of you know, I live by faith (one of the 12 principles) not fear. I do the actions of turning up to life and then I let go of the rest. Well, this attitude was aligned to what Chris calls her ‘Money Mindset Mastery’. So, little did I know that I had attracted a money magician into my life because I was well and truly ready. 6 months and 3 property purchases later, I realised just how much the lack of knowledge I had prior had been my only stumbling block to financial freedom on the long term. That was it! I had all the spiritual tools to move forward and make fearless decisions that I knew with évery cell of my body’ were right. I had developed my intuition. I had developed a money mastery mindset, just hadn’t had the actual step by step knowledge to implement it. The day after I met Chris, I was dreaming about being helped by her and her husband Jack who operates the property arm of Think Money. I awoke with an incredible surge of activation in my Third Eye. I saw geometrical shapes hurtling at me. Having never experienced this intense visual before, I questioned what it was about rather than just passively accept it. The answer? I was reactivating things that I had done hundreds of times before in previous lives. The message? Everyone needs a home. From the beginning of time, this is the truth. You’ve helped people over and over again to have a home. This is an activation of what you already know. The action? Step up and say yes. Trust I had attracted the right advice at the right time. There are parts of Chris’ story that I resonated so greatly with. For one, she retired in 2000 and after 6 weeks, she swiftly decided that retirement was not for her. I often think to myself, when reflecting on retirement, ”Retire from what exactly?” For us philanthropic types, we can’t just retire from wanting to help the human race. And that is what Chris thrives on. I love that about her and want to sing her praises and celebrate her pure 26humanitarian heart.
The other part of Chris’ story that grabbed me was the passing of her son to suicide. For me, I understand first hand the powerlessness we can feel with suicide as it happened in my own family. But I also get the profound influence it has on us as to what really matters in life. At the end of the day, money doesn’t solve everything. And this is definitely a deep learning that I feel Chris had when her son decided to end his life. The grit and determination that Chris felt in response to her son deciding to exit this world was second to none. Many people around her already decided that it was all but over for Chris and her life. But instead, Chris decided that life was to be lived and celebrated more than ever and she pressed forward to create a wonderful business that has loyal members attending wealth retreats several times a year. The final thing that I resonate with is the ongoing commitment that Chris has with her health and weight. She realised that the kinds of principles she was applying to money management and manifestation were also possible for her health. She has let go of a huge amount of weight and this is another reflection of her commitment to wanting to be here, truly celebrate life and enjoy every second. What I have learned from Chris is that you don’t hide in the closet with your passion. You can’t hide the reality of the relationship you have to money. It is what it is without our knowledge! So we might as well fess up, get real and then be open to the magic that the Universe really wants to reveal to us about the infinite possibilities that money can assist us with in this very human material world. If not us, then who? - Michelle Lightworker
CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT WHAT IS POSSIBLE WORDS BY AMANDA CAMPBELL PRINCIPLE - OPEN MINDEDNESS Paralysed at age 29, I was faced with a permanent disability and my worst fears were in fact realised. I was not looking after myself emotionally and the stress of deeply believing that I was not ok, caught up with me. My body started to mirror how emotionally paralysed I felt and it literally went so numb that my body stopped working and I lost complete mobility on the left hand side of my body. I could not wash, walk or feed myself and I could not get dressed without help. I was forced to completely stop and reset. The doctors said that they could not guarantee I would ever recover, it was now simply a waiting game to see if I would respond to treatment. That was the hardest darkest time of my life. But the best thing that could have happened. It’s like lighting a candle in a well-lit room; you don’t really notice the light. It’s when everything becomes dark, that’s a time when you find your light and what you are truly capable of. When I was young, I was a happy, motivated girl. But the trouble was, the confidence I expressed externally didn’t always match what I actually believed about myself. Manifesting as feelings of anxiety and confusion, I did not understand that this feeling was a symptom reflecting beliefs such as I was not good enough or capable. What you deeply believe is a mirror of your health and how you perceive your environment. It’s more common than you realise, we can truly want to feel loved, successful or enough but the brain, perhaps from prior trauma and past experiences actually believes that this is not possible, or you may feel you do not deserve it. I truly believe that this lack of alignment of my ‘conscious desires’ that were conflicting with my ‘deepest ingrained beliefs’ and therefore programs (subconsciously) led to inflammation and stress in my body. It can make you feel empty, vacant and sad. When I found myself functioning from this very alarmed state, I inevitably focused on what I didn’t want and what I was scared of that could happen - exacerbating the problem. Essentially creating a sabotage cycle - sound familiar?
We love this interview with Dr Joe Dispenza talking about how he healed himself - watch it here!
There was a pivotal moment where everything changed for me. About 5 or 6 weeks in living in rehabilitation at hospital, my toe finally moved for the first time. It was in that moment I found hope. From that moment on, I started to channel my energy differently. I focused on what I wanted instead of what I didn’t want. The impact that made on my recovery was beyond my wildest dreams. There was an obvious physical difference for me, when my mindset shifted so did my body and my mobility started to change. I went from being in a wheelchair, to learning how to use a foot brace, to having just my knee taped up…. to walking on my own. Those first few steps walking again were indescribable. I will never forget them. I walked and ran the oval within 6 weeks. Achieving this recovery when I really wasn’t ‘supposed to’ created a shift within me what was enormous. It was the evidence I needed to feel hope again, as I was told I may never recover and that my disability may be permanent. It allowed me to change my mind about what was possible: For my health and mobility The course of my disease and therefore my future And later into other areas of my life (love and career) I took a balanced approach in my health program and thank the doctor’s, physio’s and kinesiologists, a whole integrated team that helped me. I had people stand with me when I couldn’t stand. After my recovery I was inspired to be there for others going through similar extremely difficult times in their lives. I have now dedicated my life paying it forward to help others to optimise their health through times of setbacks.
To change your mind about what is possible you must be ready to have an open mind, see the world with new eyes, shift your perspective, let go of the old and welcome the new to transform your health and life. - Amanda Campbell
WILLINGNESS TO THE INFINITE INTELLIGENCE WORDS BY KAMALA DEVI
PRINCIPLE - WILLINGNESS
In recent days there have been quite a lot of information, ideas, tools and awareness that exists to manifest abundance or what's known as the Law of Attraction. There are numerous laws of nature like, Law of Action, Substitution, Rhythm, Vibration, Polarity and so on. Irrespective of caste, creed, continent, colour, gender or occupation, each and every human being has the divine right to live a life of abundance. When there is a law it needs to be addressed, and if, as human beings, we have an establishment and rules to follow in this lower dense three dimensional world, we could imagine how significant it is to abide by the Divine Law in order to achieve things. Interestingly there are many successful people in history acting as a living proof, even today in our lifetime, manifesting abundance. As per the divine design, every one of them have achieved the state of bliss and fulfilled their divine contract.
If we look into the life and teachings of ascended masters and greatest people, we could possibly find out their willingness to be divinely driven by the infinite intelligence of the super conscious mind. We are aware about the power of the subconscious mind, reprogramming the unwanted beliefs and thought patterns that do not serve for our highest good, affirmations, power of words, visualisation and realisation etc. Of course willing to learn is a very good start but willingness is not just a word or something temporary. It is a consistency, determination, an ongoing process with every single moment beyond time and space living in perfect harmony with the highest self. So that we need not say," Why couldn't I attract this thing" or " It's not working for me'' or "I have everything in my life but still find no peace and complete satisfaction". Therefore let's ask ourselves first: Does my willingness to attain or achieve certain things come from the heart space/intuition In the process of manifestation am I willing to be truly aligned with the highest good of all Am I willing to be 100% faithful with the divine plan even before it manifests in reality Even if God has an alternative plan or unexpected events in my life am I willing to surrender to the divine guidance at anytime?
- Kamala Devi
Once we are ready to take action to lose the attributes of egoistic mind like resentment, fear, anger, grief, doubt, time, space etc and be willing to tap in to the love based beliefs, intuition, faith in ideas of the superconscious mind and thereby impress the subconscious to re-programme. Then we are no longer the warriors of manifestation but become the masters of ascension by raising our vibration!

ARE YOU TRAVELLING ON THE KARMA TRAIN OF UNFORGIVENESS? WORDS BY CAROLYN KING PRINCIPLE - FORGIVENESS How do you process the hurts from the past? Do you forgive immediately? Do you need time to process the event? Or do you wait for the Karma Train to hit? How many times has someone hurt you and then something bad happens to them and you immediately think, “Well that’s their Karma?”
Forgiveness can be difficult and sometimes we convince ourselves we have forgiven someone, but still wait for Karma to balance out the scales. In this space we are sitting in a space of unforgiveness. Not forgiving someone, holding on to the hurt, on any level, is like continually ingesting poison. When we hold onto things from the past, it sits in our mind, in our body, in our life and quite often doesn’t affect the person we haven’t forgiven. Forgiveness can sometimes be difficult, especially when we feel hurt on a deep level. And when we believe that forgiving someone is a sign of accepting their behaviour, that on some level we condone what they have done, it can make forgiveness even more difficult. We can also be holding to fear, afraid that if we forgive the other person we may be hurt again. But forgiveness is not about the other person. First and foremost, forgiveness allows us to return to peace. When we are holding on to unforgiveness there is an uneasiness within us that we carry.
Forgiveness is important for your own peace of mind, for your own feelings of peace within your body and for your own sense of peace in your life. Remember that forgiveness does not mean you must forget what happened, nor does it mean that you need to let them back into your life. Forgiveness is a personal journey to return to peace within you that you deserve.
Here is a process I guide my clients through when they need assistance forgiving. 1. Write down what the hurt was. Exactly as it happened. 2. Look at the situation and honestly evaluate what part you played in the situation. 3. Try to understand why the other person reacted that way. Does this offer you some insight into the situation? Did what they say have some truth in it? Did it hit a nerve within you? If so, is there something within you that needs to be released or healed? 4. Remember what others say to us is not absolute truth. We have a choice to reject or take on what they say. 5. Ask yourself why you can’t forgive them? Are you worried about being hurt again? Is there a way to forgive them but also protect yourself from further hurts? 6. Look at what your life would be like if you NEVER forgave them? Would you regret it later down the track? 7. Look at what your life would be like if you DID forgive them. Would you regret that later down the track? 8. Choose if you can for forgive them and find peace and closure in the situation.

HOW TO FEEL LESS ALONE AS A LIGHTWORKER WORDS BY TAHLEE ROUILLON PRINCIPLE - UNITY Growing up as a Highly Sensitive Empath was hard. As a child I was called melodramatic. As a teenager, I was told I needed to stop “flying off the handle”. My emotions were a rollercoaster, even as an adult. Similarly, the highs were just as potent. Music gave me goosebumps and often moved me to tears. I would get lost in long books and wild poetry. I felt feelings I couldn’t even name when a crisp autumn breeze caressed my face. Needless to say, I often felt very alone. Which was so frustrating because all I wanted was to be accepted, understood, and feel like I belonged. I craved union. Perhaps you can relate? Sensitive souls like empaths and lightworkers are often some of the most misunderstood people on the planet. We notice things and we ‘know’ things and it confuses and baffles people. Our experiences are dismissed and diluted. People often say ‘it can’t be that bad’, but it is. It really is!
"...We notice things and we 'know'things..." Disconnection kicks in and you start to believe that maybe no-one else feels the same way. Maybe you really are broken, malfunctioning and weird?! You hide your sensitivity, you shut down vulnerability and shame takes over. But here’s the thing. You’re not alone. Not even close. Highly sensitive people make up around 20% of the population, across all genders. It’s very likely that someone else you know is highly sensitive, an empath or a lightworker. Watch about Unity here
So, if you’re looking for unity and community, here are 3 ways to feel less alone as a lightworker: 1. Let go of shame When you’re judged by others for being “too sensitive” it’s easy to start judging yourself too. But the thing is, you can’t be judged for something you accept about yourself. You can never be rejected if you don't reject yourself. The instant you recognise, accept and love your sensitivity for the superpower it is - you instantly drop the need for anyone else's approval. And when that happens you step into your power, you know your worth and you claim your radiance. You unite with yourself. 2. Let go of specialness One of the tricks the ego plays on us is believing that no-one could possibly ever understand us because we’re so unique and one-of-a-kind. But the more you dissolve the idea of your specialness, you start to see our shared humanity. Connect with people from different walks of life and deepen intimacy with those you love with an open and curious mind. You’ll begin to see that we all share a yearning for belonging, love, peace and acceptance. 3. Let go of isolation Gone are the days of staying underground and working in isolation. The internet is a veritable playground of online communities! There are forums, magazines, blogs, Facebook groups, podcasts, even Instagram profiles filled with people just like you. Join memberships, comment on blogs and photos, research hashtags and reach out to others. You’ll be surprised and delighted by just how many people share your struggles and triumphs as a lightworker. - Tahlee Roullion www.sonesence.com

WORDS BY FIONA BROWN
Discipline is about the decisions you make every day in every way because they relate directly to what you want and who you are in your essence. There are also places where you make decisions that are not putting you first. My guides tell me that when we put others before ourselves, we are stepping out of flow and integrity and making decision based on someone else’s needs and so are not being honest with ourselves. We are outside the discipline of the self and the guidance informing us of what is for our highest good. Consider for a moment your morning routine, you may indicate that you are very disciplined and follow your rituals and routine to the letter every day. Is this repetitive? Are you surrendering to guidance and discipline of the self? Do you ask for guidance about what your human body wants to eat today, what it would like to wear, what time it would like to leave, what music it would like to listen to or are you doggedly sticking to a pattern of behaviour? The guides share - to truly be in discipline with the self is to be in harmony with the Soul and your purpose in every moment. I hear them saying the “SOUL PURPOSE” for our human existence is to be with ourselves as a human entity and experience this with JOY and LOVE. What you do each day and to what degree is part of our free will and our ability to manifest our earthly experiences. I am aware there is a lot of language around manifesting, having the best life ever, you can be who you want to be and yet this is also about surrendering the Ego and being disciplined and connected to the guidance offered within our own ‘live stream’ with the Divine/Universe/God/Channel of Love/ Buddha. As an Empath, I feel the difference of being guided and me being stubborn. One is where the world expands and my interactions, conversations and experiences are aligned, amazing, strong, heart driven and honest. I do not have an investment in the outcome – simply the experience. Sometimes this energy leads to new guidance and experiences that I understand are for my highest good.
PRINCIPLE - DISCIPLINE
The second response of stubbornness reflects my resistance, fear or ignorance where I am driven by my thinking desires or emotional triggers. That’s when I use a “practice/tool/process” to uncover my internal barrier – this too is part of my discipline to myself. To consistently open up and explore my own triggers and barriers (now that’s the real experience) I am however very gentle with myself these days when I see the resistance and I forgive myself instantly and shift towards the flow of love. My guides make the following suggestions to us all: Be kind to yourself – everything within this experience of being human is fluid Judge not the Self or the Other – it wastes time and we are all ONE. However, if you catch yourself judging the other – also judge this part of you. Once noticed, love this part of you and then you will also Love the Other. “Guidance” (whatever this means to you) is always listening. Just ASK……then allow yourself to receive also. Deep Awareness of your human existence/human body is advisable – know it deeply and listen to the language it speaks. It will always tell you what it needs and how you can care better for it. Evolution is inevitable as the star of Earth was created for us all to practice – your practice does count for your own evolution and transformation. If we are all ONE, evolution is inevitable. There is no qualification of good or bad. It simply IS. Watch - 7 Things your Higherself Wants You to Know

KNOW YOUR WORTH WRITTEN BY MICHELLE POTTER PRINCIPLE - FAITH Where can I feel validated, support my growth and help contribute to the family income? I am not sure how I ever thought I could become abundantly successful in a career where I have no tertiary qualifications, no mentor and no accounting software! I live and breathe to create. I love to help others and I know that art has been the catalyst for my own healing, so why not combine my passion for healing and art into a business? The gruelling task of updating my CV seems to be an annual event. After years of developing my skills I felt it was time to analyse where I could expand my network and re-examine my reluctance in going back to working for someone else. My first stop was an employment app and I typed ‘creative arts’ in search the category. A few positions came up and I started to view the job descriptions: Gallery Curator, Art Teacher, Arts Administrators, Government opportunities, all of which required qualifications I didn’t have. I decided to downgrade my search to part time. If I couldn’t find something in my field of experience, then I needed to make room for it in my life. The more I searched the more my self-worth was getting hammered and the realities of my situation started to come into the light. In the last 15 years of raising children, a life changing cancer diagnosis and years of building up an art business from home I have somehow stepped out of the business sector and have been left with two options – further education or group interviews with people younger than me fighting for retail positions for which I felt I am both over qualified and too old for. While I was wrapped up in my little cocoon evolving myself with pastel pencils and acrylic paints the world seems to have passed me by. Back when I received a weekly pay packet the average petrol price in Australia was 85c a litre. I had finished work to go on maternity leave and somehow my brain froze in 2003. ‘Lightbulb moment’, no wonder I undercharge. This exercise was important because I realised that living in lack hasn’t been due to my ability to access the abundance, it has been my inability to charge appropriately in the present. So, I asked myself the question again ‘Where can I feel validated, support my growth and help contribute the family income?’ and the answer came quickly ‘Exactly where I am, doing exactly what I’m doing but charging my worth’. When you live and breathe your purpose one of the lessons, I am learning is to know my worth. I cannot imagine working in an environment where my creative centre is not fully active. What was initially just an employment search turned out to be a valuable lesson about myself. By listening and trusting Spirit I know that the Universe has my back and I am exactly where I need to be. Michelle Potter www.michellepotter.com.au

LITTLE MISS COMFORT ZONE
The secret to success is mindset. Simple, right? But it really is just a simple shift in your thinking. Nothing shifted in my outer world until there was a shift in my inner world. THEN the universe manifested my reality. So I’ve learned that happiness really IS an inside job! A few years ago I was little Miss Comfort Zone! My multiple fears paralysed me from moving forward in my life, plus it was easier and felt safer to play small and be the victim of circumstances, rather than take any responsibility for my life. For nearly ten years I stayed in a soul-destroying job, my health was the worst it had ever been and I had a serious car accident, but I went straight back to work – because it was ‘safe’. My personal self-development journey really began when Oprah came to Australia in December 2015. Oprah quoted William Ernest Henley who said; “I am the Master of my fate. I am the Captain of my soul.” Hearing Oprah speak those words struck me like a bolt of lightning - I realised I needed to have a conversation with myself around accountability. I had been playing the victim my whole life, blaming others and circumstances for why I wasn’t happy with my life. I finally realised no-one can change my life circumstances but me. What were my deepest emotions and feelings around change? Was I really willing to step up and change my life? Was I ready to own my own mistakes? I really questioned what were my core beliefs about myself and who was I really? I AM JUST ME! There is power in that statement because I realised I am perfect just the way I am. It was time for me to just own it! In order to create my ideal life I first had to learn what that actually means to me as an individual which took a lot of internal work. I joined a meditation group, read self development books, watched webinars and enrolled in courses.
WRITTEN BY NATASHA ZERVAAS PRINCIPLE - RESPONSIBILITY
I learned that manifesting your ideal life begins with knowing exactly what you want and truly believing you can achieve this. There is no room for self-doubt, because your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between reality and your imagination. Then take intentional steps towards your ideal life. Your thoughts become your reality, so really, truly believe in yourself and the rest will follow. When you start taking responsibility for your own life and begin acting with thoughtful intention, you also begin taking fate into your own hands. I now start each morning and set my intention for the day with a short visualisation meditation. I created a beautiful gold vision board that included all my big goals and dreams and focus daily on that also. Once my inner world changed, my outer world followed. With the use of nutrition and herbal medicines, I slowly recovered from long-term adrenal fatigue, thyroid and hormonal disorders. I also changed my diet completely and finally shed the many kilos of excess weight I was hiding under. I left my old ‘comfort zone’ job, established my own business and now spend my days working with men and women, helping them be their best selves. I just love my life now and feel like my soul is lit up inside. Only in hindsight can I see how good things happened when I got out of my own way, stepped out of my comfort zone and let my light shine. It was scary but worth the journey.

LOVE.... WRITTEN BY CHRISTIN EWALD IS MAGENTA GODDESS
PRINCIPLE - LOVE
We are all chasing it. We are all wanting it. Love. To be loved. Being love. Finding love. Falling in love. Eat love... Eat love? That’s right! Now you can literally eat love. Through chocolate. Oh my gosh! I KNOW! How awesome and exciting is this? Eat love through chocolate! How guilty do you feel when you eat chocolate? Do you regret it afterwards or do you indulge in it guilt-free, knowing this is good for you? Some chocolate actually IS good for you. Some of the ingredients I use in my chocolate are GOOD for you! Cacao enhances the mood. Maple syrup has plenty of health benefits especially when it comes to your liver. There are so many benefits to your organs. Cacao butter and coconut oil are the same. And we all know that Himalayan Salt is vital for us, but I am not here to list all the health benefits of the ingredients. Some chocolate left me breaking out with eczema. I felt it in my body straight away if I ate too much. I knew I needed to create my own. Of course fasting helps strengthen the body. Yet, I believe if you eat food that you know and feel serves your body, mind and soul why would you eat something else? All the time! Anyway, this is about creating healthy options. I love food. I am passionate about food and more than anything chocolate is my favourite. Most days anyway. When I was younger I used to steal my sister’s chocolate sandwich and switch it for the salami one. Maybe I used to be more addicted than passionate. I can remember sitting on the toilet calling my dad telling him that I needed to poop but I couldn’t. He said straight away: “Stop eating so much chocolate!” I asked: “How do you know I ate too much chocolate?” He would say: “You are my daughter.” Well, lots of lovely memories around chocolate. In fact, I believe that I have my weakness for chocolate from my dad. Or is it as my friend said: “Don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like chocolate.” Is there truly such a thing? Do I really want to know? Anyway, I invented together with the beautiful Amy J. Young, Lightfilled Food - an outlet to create new lightfilled recipes so we don'’t have to evolve into living off carbon monoxide or chemicals. An option to indulge into chocolates knowing it serves your body is a wellness treat for the heart and the soul. Who doesn’t love that?
Please watch the video for the how to’s and how the love gets into the chocolate. I hope you love it and my love for what I do vibrates to you. If you would like to order your favourite flavour or order chocolates I make for you, please message me on Facebook on Lightfilled Food or via Magenta Goddess. Taste tests available.

FINDING LOVE IN BEING WHOLE
BY AMY J YOUNG PRINCIPLE - WHOLENESS
I love how there is a self-love topic on the forefront of many magazines, social media posts and online articles. I love that it is finally becoming the topic of a number of conversations between so many. However I have to be honest, I have never quite understood what self-love means. Sure I have had thoughts about what it is and can only assume what I think it is, but as I sit down to write this I find myself scratching my head as to what it really means to love myself? So I will start here. There are days when I look in the mirror and I think, hmmm, ok, I look nice today and there are days when I cannot stand to even look at myself. So is this self-love? Being ok with what is reflecting back in the mirror? Maybe, but surely it's more than that? What if we go deeper? What is behind the clothes, the hair, the make up? A human body. Do I love this body? Hmm it's ok i guess, but If I loved it more would this be self-love? Maybe. What is behind the body? Organs, muscles, tissues, blood. Do I love this part of my body? Sure. I'm thankful, it works in a way I don't quite understand and the design of how it all works together is nothing short of mind blowing. If I love this more is it self-love? It could be. And behind this? Emotions, feelings, senses, thoughts. An incredible vast network of these unseen "things" that run deeply through my body. Carrying every single thought, action and memory and delivering it with lightening speed along carefully grown networks of energy within my body. Can I love this? Would this be self-love? Can I go deeper? What ever could be beyond this beautiful design? Atoms, neutrons and a vibrating energy that may not be seen by the naked eye or even a microscope. I can't see it but can I feel it. Yes. If I love this would this be self-love? It feels good, surely. Hmmm, maybe? Could I try to go deeper then this? What is it? I can feel it, it's like an infinite open expansiveness that feels a bit like space. But it's peaceful and it feels like, well it feels like, peace. I think it feels like love. I don't know how to explain as I cannot see it with my eyes but I can feel it. I can feel it with everything that I am. It feels like love but more then just that. Can all this be within the person that I am? All of this? If I can love all of this, every particle, every network, every blood cell, every organ, every skin cell and every single part of my expansive connected energy. Is this self-love? Loving every single part of myself? From every thought, to every action to every moment, movement and sense. If I can truly understand that my self as a whole is made of love, I can love and be loved. When I drop back to the surface, my body, my clothes my hair, how can I not be in awe and in love with all of this? A whole universe inside of myself that I never knew existed but shows up as this being reflected back to me in the mirror. Wow. Why wouldn't I want to take care of this amazing temple that houses this incredible expansiveness! This amazing well of infinite energy that feels incredible. How can I not stand here and be moved by this? So I want to leave you dear reader with this. It has been famously said.....'And in the end, the love you get is equal to the love you give,'...think about that for a moment. Not my quote but a famous one from a very well known song. I may not have understood it until now. But now I think I understand self-love and how wholeness relates to this and what it means to me. So from my heart space to yours...you will be loved. Completely! In Wholeness.
We love this TED Talk

ETERNAL JOY BY KAMALA DEVI PRINCIPLE - JOY When people say my heart is in joy, are they truly joyful? If it is so, then why do they feel sad or disappointed the very next moment? Is that because joy is unable to fulfill them completely? or it is something that is not constant and has different faces? Of course everything in a materialistic view is incomplete and can feel unfulfilled. In this 3D world, some may feel 99% of one's happiness depends upon others or something from an external source. Human beings are continuously being bombarded and influenced by their environment to maintain the status quo! Hence most of our decisions to keep ourselves in a state of joy is dependent on how others react or respond to us. This is a sad truth that exists in the current world and it's no wonder that social media can be superficial. It can play a huge role in deteriorating the true joyous nature of our divine being. Obviously everyone's perspective on joy differs. People can tend to put their belief in a third-party, either it may be a person, thing, money situation or something else. It is necessary for us to eat, drink, sleep, work, get-together etc. But this life is not meant for just surviving but to live genuinely divine! Here comes the tricky part, it's not bad to be abundant, but perhaps in the intention behind achieving abundance in all aspects of life for all concerned equates to true joy. Everything is vibrating at a different frequency, therefore the highest form of joy is nothing but the highest good of all. In the Map of Consciousness Energy Levels originally by David.R.Hawkins on his book, Power Vs Force, a scale of consciousness level from 0 to the highest end of 1000 points was calibrated which includes 17 different levels of consciousness from fear (100) to joy (540) and finally enlightenment at 1000 being the highest attainable level. Here are the words by Celestina Chua from Conscious Living, "Joy (540): The dominant emotion is serenity and compassion. This is the inner joy that arises from every moment of existence rather than from an external source. This is the level where saints, advanced spiritual students and healers dwell. At this level, one is characterised by enormous patience and an unwavering positive attitude in the face of harsh adversities. The world is seen as one of perfection and beauty. Individuals are motivated to dedicate themselves to the benefit of life rather than for specific individuals. Here, transfiguration occurs, where there is an inner serenity and emanating of radiance and compassion for others. The life view is completeness (of the world). Near-death experiences have the effect of temporarily bumping people into this level." Eternal joy is the responsibility to remember the real you. It is the willingness of the soul to live it's divine authentic self, even in this earthly realm. Being honest in walking the path less travelled by others. Dare enough to dwell in discipline in the path of light. Joy is certainly the spiritually open-minded person rather than simply religious and takes the time to inquire and understand the universe beyond his own perspective. To see the world in the eyes of God she wears the armour of love for everyone. In every up and down using forgiveness as a catalyst for spiritual growth, the purest form of joy makes oneself faithful in unifying the diversified world. Thus with these peaceful foundations one progresses into the non dual awareness, the oneness or wholeness within self and others which is an eternal JOY. - Kamala Devi

INNER PEACE IS CONTAGIOUS WORDS BY JOY FAIRHALL
PRINCIPLE - PEACE
Inner peace isn’t it as easy as placing some Buddhas around, burning incense, wearing a caftan and a crystal or two? If only it was that easy! Peace is seen as the ultimate goal to achieve in life today, it’s the one trophy we strive for, to hold proudly above our heads wearing a beautiful serene smile to share with everyone exactly how peaceful we are. Peace is a great prize however; your peace prize shouldn’t be sought for display it’s something that should be obtained just for you. What is peace, why is it so highly sought after, and can it really help you? Peace simply means that in the midst of the many of the challenges life throws your way. Peace gives you the ability to deal with and recover from stressful situations. Learning how to find inner peace is one of life’s most important lessons. Have you ever been around someone who no matter what is occurring around them stays, what many calls, Zen? A person who radiates serenity, inner peace and calm? A person who brings peace to the whole room without even opening their mouth, this is your ultimate goal and how you get there will vary for everyone. From here on I share some tips and information designed for you to start your pathway to inner peace:
Meditation - Research continuously shows that meditation benefits us by allowing us to better cope with stress. Mindfulness - Mindfulness is one of the assets to assist with inner peace. Acknowledging your emotions as they arise, looking at them without judgement and then letting them go, allows the mind to refocus and bring back calmness and control. Let go the past - Everyone has regrets about the past you need to accept you can’t change the past, to let it go and choose to change your future to peace right now, peace cannot begin if there is inner turmoil. Nature - Nature, even in your own backyard will ground you and help calm your mind down, bring peace back into your heart. Help others - Helping others and knowing you’ve made a difference, no matter how small, in someone’s life quickly promotes the feelings of inner peace. Ignore people’s talk - What other people say about your life is their opinion not yours don’t allow their judgement to affect you and impact your life. Your goal, your ultimate prize is to be so peaceful that life is a blissful state of being, a state of total control, gratitude, stillness, happiness and love, This is true inner peace. How amazing would it be to bring peace to the world by being so blissfully peaceful yourself that you radiate peace and bring peace to others by being you? - Joy Fairhall

Lightworker Practitioner Training Praise for LPT
WRITTEN BY LPT STUDENT CRYSTAL JOE DICKANT
”WOW! There is so much to say! Where do I start? October 18, 2018, I stumbled upon your course while searching for an answer to why I had been seeing the numbers 911 in every which way shape and form for over 5 years. I knew it meant something. But what? I knew I had a gift. But what? I knew I could see colors around people. But what does that mean? I wasn’t spiritual. But I knew there was more to life. I wasn’t lost. But I wasn’t whole. “Could you be a lightworker?”, are the words I read. I thought to myself, "Could I be?"Not knowing what a lightworker was, I felt encouraged to continue reading. The more I read, it was as if I already knew what I was reading. As if I read it all before. Still puzzled but having a feeling like I was on to something I continued to research Lightworkers. After reading the introduction and scrolling through the list of levels I was right where I needed to be. It wasn’t long at all I was creating a user name and password for the Master Lightworker Practitioner certification. It happened literally that fast. Unsure of what was to come or change in my life, I had no hesitations as I normally would. It was an “all in” “head first” moment which for me at the time was unheard of. The fog cleared, and I could see the light. The information made so much sense. The guidance was so effortless. The empowerment was enlightening. Moving through each lesson the light got brighter. Any questions I had going into a lesson was answered completely as if they knew I asked the question. I would go into a lesson thinking of a part of my life that I could heal from just reading the topic of that lesson and sure enough I could heal that part once the lesson was complete. My confidence grew, my self-awareness was triggered, I trusted what I now know as my higher self. I began living! Decisions became easier, I created boundaries to protect my etheric vibrations from toxic energy, I spoke the truth with integrity and people were starting to notice! Still living in the spiritual closet at the time I acknowledged those who said, “There is something different about you,” but I didn’t quite tell them what they were witnessing. Looking back, I know my spirit guide, higher resources, and higher self knew the next step. The next lesson was how to feel safe when coming out of the spiritual closet. Michelle Lightworker guided, encouraged, and walked me away from the fear associated with being who we are meant to be. I have had so many jaw dropping moments since October 18th, moments that just make me smile because I just know I was being guided. Not just the principles but the way Michelle guides her students through the depth of the true meaning allowing us to really feel the empowerment is beyond words. I have sense healed my thoughts about money. I have healed those nagging insecurities. I have faced my darkest of shadow parts. I take responsibility for my actions. I do not victimize myself. I am aware of how my vibrations affect others. I love it for 10 minutes and it works! I have no fear. I have no fear! Wow, that felt so good to type that I had to type it twice. Simply amazing! I have no attachments, I can process the grieving cycle and the addictions cycle! Having experienced it first-hand I’m guiding others to do the same. Did I mention I had never meditated until this course? I love meditating! I don’t know how I lived without it! Okay, moving on…….. So, it’s no secret who the new Crystal is. I’m certain everyone is pleased. Well, those who stuck around. Just like one of the last lessons guides us to keep moving forward. I took the gift from that friendship and kept keeping on! So, what are my plans? I’m excited to tell you! I have had so many random people ask me, “how are you so positive, how are you keeping it all together, are you ever in a bad mood?” The questions keep coming….. So, I am doing my first guided group session this spring and I am calling it, “Spring Into Your Higher Self!” The idea behind it is to do personal invites to answer their questions, share my story, and have faith that I will be guided completely. I have an easel and notepad that I am working on now creating an outline of sorts to keep me on track. I want to gear it towards loving ourselves and all our imperfections, everything in moderation! I am super excited to tell you that in appreciation to Michelle and her course the funds collected will be donated to the Lightworker Foundation. I have faith that this session will kick start many one on one sessions and my business that I plan to get up and running shortly! Thank you, thank you!!!! Much love and respect, Crystal”

BOOK REVIEW / BOOK REVIEW / BOOK REVIEW THE THREE ROOMS: WHICH ROOM ARE YOU IN Book Author Kevin Murphy "Remember, happiness doesn't depend on who you are or what you have, it depends solely on what you think." Although the Buddha is often credited with that quote, its origin doesn't really matter. Few people would dispute its message. So if most people would agree that our thoughts determine how we feel, then why are we not very good at monitoring our thoughts? The analogy of The Three Rooms can help. From The Three Rooms perspective, our thoughts can only be in one of three places: they can be in the past (the Past Room); the future, (the Future Room); or the present (the Present Room); and whichever room our thoughts are in determines our experience of life in that moment. Since our thoughts can move back-and-forth in the linear concept of time, it is imperative that we observe our thoughts. It is that act of observation that separates our awareness from our thoughts so we are no longer at the effect of them. This awareness, or consciousness, is what all the spiritual masters have urged us to connect with. In order to access this Divine Consciousness, we need to know where our thoughts are. That's why the fundamental question that we need to ask ourselves is "Where am I?" In other words, "Where are my thoughts?" If you can ask and answer that simple question, then you have already separated your awareness from your thoughts. Unlike the physical body, our thoughts can be in one of three places, and each place leads to a different experience of life. The Past Room: When our thoughts are in the Past Room, we continuously think of events that have caused us to feel negative emotions based on what we perceive others to have said or done to us...or us to them. We tend to dwell on those thoughts which further perpetuates the negative emotions they generate. Resentment, guilt, anger and shame are a few of the emotions we feel when our thoughts are in the Past Room. The Future Room: This is when we think about all the things that can go wrong and we focus on the worst-case scenarios. We look around at what is, and we project the image of what we don't have into the future. The feeling of stress and anxiety that this creates is what actually pushes away the very things we desire. When our thoughts are stuck in the Past or Future Room, we are constantly seeing the world as separate from us, so we feel the separation from our own Higher Self. That is the singular cause of the negative emotions we feel in the Past and Future Rooms. The Present Room: Instead of looking at what is, this is when we focus on what can be. There is an absence of negative thought, so there is nothing preventing us from feeling our connection to our Source. The love that we feel when we are in communion with our Higher Self is the feeling that allows us to attract into our lives that which we desire. If we are going to observe which room our thoughts are in, we need to better understand the thoughts that we are observing: A thought is a vibration that is stored as energy in a Field of Potential Probabilities, waiting to manifest. This field of energy has had many names. Sometimes it is called Divine consciousness, prana, or the Akashic field. Other times it is called the quantum vacuum, ether, or the zero-point field. No matter what name you apply to it, it is the Source energy that makes up all there is.
All of the inspired ideas we receive, as well as the negative thoughts we produce, are stored in the same Field of Potential Probabilities. It is up to us to determine which ones we access based on the vibrations we are producing in any moment. When our emotions resonate with the same vibrational frequency as our Higher Self, we are able to interpret those vibrations in the form of inspired ideas. This is what happens when our thoughts are in the Present Room. When our emotions are not in alignment with our Higher Self, we are interpreting vibrations based on what we see and hear in the form of resistant thoughts. This is what happens when our thoughts are in the Past and Future Room. In the movie The Greatest Showman, P.T. Barnum, played by Hugh Jackman, makes a birthday present for his daughter. He tells her, "This is a wishing machine. You tell it your wishes and it keeps them safe until they come true. Even if you forget them, they are always there." Wouldn't that be amazing if there was a real wishing machine? Well, there is. It is the same Field of Potential Probabilities (FoPP). Your wishes are just thoughts from your imagination. They are stored in the FoPP until your vibrational frequency lines up with them, even if you forget them. If you feel negative emotions about something you are wishing for, the manifestation of that wish will sit patiently in the FoPP waiting for you to align with the feeling of the wish being fulfilled. Since your wish is just a thought, it will manifest if you will align with it. The only way to be in alignment with your wish is to feel as if it has already come true. The feeling is everything. When your thoughts are stuck in the Past or Future Room, you cannot align vibrationally with your wish because your thoughts are in a room that doesn't bring you joy. There is always a gap between when we make a wish and when it manifests. You must enjoy the gap, otherwise the manifestation won't come. The doubt caused by our own negative emotions is the very substance that prevents our wishes from being fulfilled. The irony is that if you don't feel the joy as if your desire is already fulfilled, then it can't come to pass. But if you feel the joy of it manifesting before you can see it, then you will feel the joy again once it does manifest. That is what is meant by "twice-felt." In the Past and Future Rooms, you don't feel the joy and your wish never comes true. In the Present Room, you get to feel it twice and it does come true. It's your choice. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Kevin Murphy is a former Wall Street managing director, high school and collegiate wrestling champion, community activist, speaker, coach, and author.
