One day a father and son go camping. They set up their camp, pitch their tent and get out their sleeping bags. During the night the young boy wakes up and he looks up to the sky and sees all the stars. He wakes his dad up. He says, "Dad, dad, look! what can you see?" And the dad says, "Oh, wow son, yes. I can see Taurus and Sagittarius and Scorpio. Amazing, isn't it? What do you see, son?" The son says, "Well, someone’s bloody-well stolen our tent, Dad.”

So this story, funny or not, is representative of many of us in life today. Some people are very, very interested in the cosmic counterparts. The planets, the stars and possibly even what influence they have on our life; for others, not so much. In our scientific age, particularly in recent times, we have distanced ourselves from the ancient understanding that the planets, in particular, have a significant influence on our life. Or at least that is the theory.

So the question is, would you like to know in advance that at some point in your life you're going to have certain health challenges; prostate, bones, blood, energy levels, fatigue? Would you like to know in advance that maybe finances are going to be very tough? Or certain other times in your life where it's going to be great to start new relationships, or get married? Or start a new business or start a family? So that you get more support of nature? So things flow better in your life and you don't have so many obstacles or delays or barriers? These questions are pertinent because this is really what the science of astrology is all about.

Vedic Astrology - Jyotish

In ancient times, in Vedic tradition, it was called Jyotish; Jyotish or Vedic Astrology. Astrology in that part of the world was understood from the word, Jyoti, which means light. So the idea is the knowledge of the cosmos, the cosmic counterparts; the planets and how they influence our mind, body emotions our whole life - is in a sense, lighting up the path of our evolution. Imagine you're in darkness: you're walking around in the middle of the night, bumping into things. You're hitting your knee, you’re swearing, you're falling down pits, you're walking in water, and all kinds of problems. If you had a light, if you had a lamp that you are walking with in front of you; then it lights up the path. So you can see the rocks, or the indentations, or the ravines, or whatever problems can come your way. You can also see which path might be easier to walk on, that's smoother and well trodden.

Ding, ding, ding. Welcome to the Battle Royale of the Year 2020! In fact, maybe the battle of the decade, possibly even the century!

In the blue corner: The Heavyweight Champion of the World over the last hundred-plus years and backed by the meat industry; it is the carnivores - the meat-eaters! Let’s hear a round of applause.

In the red corner: An Up-and-Comer, growing in stature over the last few years, backed by Gwyneth Paltrow (I’m not sure that’s a good thing) Arnold Schwarzenegger and many other celebrities around the world; drum roll please – vegan.

That’s right, we are on the doorstep of a huge battle. Many debates are raging around the world between meat eaters, vegans and vegetarians. Well, the question of course, is who is correct? Should we eat meat? Shouldn’t we eat meat? Should we eat dairy? Shouldn’t we eat dairy?

Positive psychology says we need more good news in our world. We've all heard how important it is to be in a positive frame of mind. Of course, this same sentiment has been around for thousands of years in the ancient cultures.

Good in theory, not always so easy in practice. So what can we do to help our mental health and hopefully reduce things like anxiety and depression?

Ancient Wisdom

The ancient wisdom has always been that we put our attention where we can on what is positive, what's uplifting, what is sweet, what is beautiful in our world. Why? Because as the ancient Vedic aphorism suggests, "What we see, we become."

As the ancient Hawaiians also said, "Where attention goes, energy flows."

Simply put, what we put our attention on grows stronger in our lives. In the ancient Ayurvedic understanding and current day Maharishi Ayurveda for example, the understanding is that we metabolize not just the food we eat, but everything we experience.

Digestion … of experience

The term metabolize is often used in connection with food. We eat food. We need to process that food. We need to digest it, and then metabolize it so that we get the benefits of its nutrients, but as mentioned, it's not just food that we have to metabolize.

The ancients understood that all our sensory perceptions, what we see, what we taste, what we smell, what we touch also must be metabolized or processed on a deep level.

Most important today is what we hear. Do we hear good news or stories about war, crime and all the bad things that abound in our western media?

We have to process those things and it has a physiological effect. It can dampen our immune system, raise our stress hormones and negatively impact our mental health.

December 15, 2019 Melbourne, Australia.

I’ve just finished watching heartbreaking story after heartbreaking story of farmers and rural communities throughout Australia devastated by the ongoing drought. Daily stories are now also being told of our national bushfire disasters. Everyday, homes lives and livestock are being lost, suicides are at all-time highs …and there seems no end in sight. 

Like nearly every Australian, troubled by the incredibly despairing stories, I ask on a daily basis, “What can we do?”

The amazing benefits for our mental health, physical health, happiness & more.

 

The best healing sanctuary in the world is all about forest bathing.

Mother nature at her best, is what we're talking about today.

Science is now backing up the ancient wisdom of Ayurvedic medicine, about the importance of human beings being connected to Mother Nature. 

Would you like to know some ‘natural’ remedies to counteract the negative effects of some of the things you might be inclined to overindulge in over the coming ‘Indulgence Season‘ – extra drinking…chocolate… sun etc?

While obviously it’s ideal not to overindulge too much too often, we also know that it’s good to ‘let our hair down’ (for those who still have some!) every now & then. Below I’ve listed some powerful, ‘natural’ little ANTIDOTES, that you can use to offset some of the ‘not so healthy’ effects of certain things over the coming weeks.

Do you sun gaze or at least connect to the early morning sun as a daily practice? Are you aware of the incredible mental, physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of such a daily ritual?

While many of us know about high-performers morning habits such as making their bed, planning their day and exercising, connecting with early morning sunlight is not so well know.

As understood by most ancient cultures, the master regulator of all our internal health and performance cycles is the cycle of the sun. Most advanced traditional cultures throughout time have started their day greeting the sun through an ancient ritual called ‘sun gazing’. (Others, as in India along the Ganges river, do things like Yoga 'sun salutes' while facing East as the sun rises).

Did you scrape your tongue this morning?

Good news. Another ancient health practice has recently been accepted and promoted by modern experts

Have you been to buy a toothbrush lately, and noticed many companies marketing a tongue cleaner on the back of their brushes? Promoted as a way to rid yourself of bacteria that accumulates on the surface of your tongue, they actually have a lot of merit.
