The healing garden

spring 2 @ mUMS

About six weeks ago Hully my husband who has been doing a Horticulture Course chose as his landscape design Mum’s garden in New Zealand.

Mum has had two beautiful gardens both quite different. The first one was 6 acres and her last one was a much smaller space for her but this was the one we all loved.

We never lived there but it was home. It was where we went to stay for Christmas, and any other time we went home. We looked forward to it, as we knew we were going to see family cousins, aunties, uncles and friends. But it was a place to heal, where stress disappeared, calmness descended and for the time you were in the garden you felt totally at peace.

It also gave us a chance to help Mum do the bigger jobs in the garden.For me it was a time to reconnect with the mountains and the beauty of the place.

So getting back to the job in hand. Hully drew his plan to scale and my job was to look at photos and work out what the names of the plants were and the botanical names so they could be added to the design. She had a lot of plants in her garden but I have learnt the names and cried a lot…

It was such a joy but for me so emotional because I know we will never go there again, to sit on the veranda and look out over the lawn and at the garden, that we will not look out the window and see her practicing her golf putting on the lawn. That we won’t see her out in the rose garden that she loved so much. I loved being there and I miss her and her beautiful healing garden.

For those of you who have lost loved ones we will always hold them in our hearts but there is no time on when you stop grieving. I am glad Hully did this design Mum would have been so proud of him.

But we are thankful that she had the ability to create such a beautiful space that we as a family all loved.

My Life as a Clairvoyant

New-Zealand-Itineraries-South-Island-69

But you look normal !!!!

When are you going to get a real job?

You must be working for the devil

Tell me some numbers in lotto

These are pretty tame but all the same they are things that I would get thrown at me when I first started doing Intuitive Readings. I was born clairvoyant not that I had any idea what that was, as if you would growing up on a farm in the South Island of New Zealand in the 1950- 60’s. That seems like a lifetime ago.

Being born a clairvoyant medium has over the years been both a burden and a blessing. I struggled with coming to terms with these gifts as it is still difficult to try and explain why you are feeling so awful when you are with a lot of people for example in shopping centres, in the city, that’s why I need my own space.

This last year with all the energy shifts has been exceptional draining but when we are through it I’m hoping I can fly, well teleport maybe?????

As a child growing up in a very quiet beautiful part of New Zealand, I realized that other people didn’t see the world quite the same way as I did. My world was crammed full of spirits that no one else could see and I learned the hard way, when giggling at the spirit children playing in my classroom, that life can be more challenging when you are born “gifted”.

I was able to see colour around living things, and felt people’s feelings, which is what emphatics do. I just assumed that every one could do this. As a result of my naivety, I spent a good part of my last two years of primary school, outside in the corridor! My Dad, who also had my abilities to some degree, said just be careful who you talked to about what you see, as not everyone understands. Living on the farm taught me about sustainability, looking after the land we lived on. The peace, the love of animals and the solitude it brought. When at age 13 my parents sold the farm, I was devastated. I told them I was staying and felt lost and betrayed. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was suffering from depression. I was just so sad. But I always knew that God was with me, no matter what, and that always pulled me through, it gave me hope.

I spent most of my younger years trying to fit in, conform, not to be seen as different. I think I did quite a good job, but I was so unhappy. It wasn’t until I met my husband, that I finally had someone who understood me. Living with me would have been a challenge, for I knew when things were right or not, my intuition was very strong and spirit was always in my ear. I knew when it was time to move or that I needed to do something.  Not that I always followed my knowing. For someone who takes that for granted and just flows with it, it’s normal. No proof needed. But when you live in the logical world, it can be hard to cope with. It wasn’t until circumstances had us moving to Wanganui, in the North Island of New Zealand and I started attending a Spiritualist Centre, that I finally truly felt I belonged. They told me they had been waiting for me. That made me think!

When I was younger we used to go to church. The only reason I went was because I loved the singing and the beautiful stained glass windows. When I got to about 12 I wouldn’t go anymore because I knew I could talk to God where I was, he wasn’t always in church. I also knew he had work for me to do, but I didn’t know what that was either.

At the Spiritualist Centre I began my training and it felt like I was just re learning to ride a bike. I learnt to manage my gifts, and to work responsibly with them, which made life a little easier. I knew our move to the North Island was in preparation for our shift to Australia, which when it came, happened quickly! How do you explain to parents this is what spirit wanted us to do? It did sound crazy.

On a spiritual level I never looked back, but on an emotional level I had some very big lessons to learn that nearly pulled me under.

My guide told me at the beginning of this year that in order to help and empower woman I need to have understood their pain, sorrow and struggles. I could have really done with out them, but I do understand what they were saying!

My husband’s serious illness at the beginning of 2000 changed our lives again. There was talk of him being put on the heart transplant list, but fortunately that wasn’t required. Financially we struggled, but always managed. There we a lot of people who helped us and to them, I am eternally grateful.

Through the next five years of many hospital visits to Doctors it was becoming clear that I was being guided to study nursing. At 58 years of age, I got a degree in Nursing, specializing in Mental Health. I realized I loved learning, it’s something you never stop doing! One of the things that I came to really understand over the years and is a big part of my teaching, is that unresolved

Emotional / mental issues can create physical illness.

When working in mental health I was bullied by some staff members, something that should never have happened, but it lead me to move on and get a diploma in Transpersonal Counselling, which was as close to Spiritual Psychology as I could get and I love it..

I got back into running classes, started writing and have now come full circle. ‘Achievable Enlightenment’ is published and another one waiting to be published.

Over the next few months I will be getting back into my Clairvoyant Readings, on Skype and email. Working on developing new e-courses and workshops that will empower and inspire women to take back control of their lives and retreats. I am so excited about all of this. It is like letting me loose in the gardening centre and telling me I can have whatever I want that would be scary.

My purpose is to help you achieve a sustainably happy healthy life and show you how you can do this.

Through Intuitive Readings, Meditation and Intuitive Development Classes.

Until I see you again be happy

You too often, take the negative approach to problems, the glass half empty. Things needed to change but you don’t know how.

Life feels like it’s out of control, your anxious, stressed and at your wits end. Some times you feel very insecure, unhappy. You have always been spiritual, a believer one could say; but never really knowing where you fitted in; a lost soul. Life and your business are no longer making you happy.

 By creating CLARITY Spiritual Mentoring helps to bring empowerment into your life 

  • Finding a more positive way to look at life makes such a difference, a glass half full not a glass half empty.
  • Taking responsibility for your own life and behaviour rather than blaming others for what has happened.
  • Asking yourself what you have learnt from the situation and looking at how much you have grown.
  • Being kind to yourself.
  • Embracing change not fearing.
  • Waking up each morning and being thankful for what you have, not what you don’t.
  • Understanding why it was important for you to experience certain satiations.
  • Empowering yourself and others.

We all have a purpose to fulfil, understanding what that purpose is, can help us to make the most of the lessons we are here to learn and to love and care about our own life .

My book ‘Achievable Enlightenment’ http://www.judithtehuia.com/#!achievable-enlightenment/cz0s   gives answers to many questions you may have about your spiritual journey

5 Tips on Creating a Healthy Work/ Life Balance

original

“Our lives are full of stress: transitions, growing responsibility, our goals, and our work. We may encounter more stressful situations at different times and in various stages as we transverse through our life journey even coping with happy situations can sometimes be stressful.”

  1. Recognising symptoms of stress

We have all experienced stress and no doubt you have a pretty good idea what generates it in your life, and the havoc it can wreak. Most of us would like to have less stress but, it can be difficult to eliminate it entirely as we work, have families.

Stress symptoms can include:

  • Reflux
  • Irritable bowel
  • Ulcers
  • Indigestion
  • Diarrhoea, constipation
  • Heart disease
  • Asthma
  • Immune system related disease
  • Cancer
  • Muscles spasm
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Alcohol and drug misuse and dependence

Understanding the symptoms of stress, can help us understand if we maybe suffering from any one of them. We realize that there is help out there and we must not be afraid to ask for it. Taking care of ourselves is necessary and we must not feel guilty about it.

  1. Making time for yourself

Are you are in a position where another person’s wellbeing depends upon you? This might be your children, your spouse, your work or even just caring for your family.

Making sure that you have me time is vitally important for your own mental, emotional spiritual and physical wellness. Your family and loved ones will benefit from you being well and happy. We can often be so caught up in making sure everyone else is looked after that we forget about the most important person. You. Here are a few quick suggestions for enhancing your mental and emotional wellness by doing every day ordinary things.

  • Walking, jogging and running really help with mental wellness
  • Use relaxation techniques
  • Lessen the amount of caffeine taken daily
  • Do something just for you
  • Soak in the bath
  • Read a book
  • Do yoga or Tai Chi
  • Ask a friend to look after your children
  • Talk to someone about how you are feeling, don’t bottle it up
  • Meeting up with friends is vital
  • Keep up your interests to whatever extent you can
  1. Learning relaxation techniques

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools we have in our modern world. The benefits of meditation are many; it is a naturally relaxing and healing process, which focuses on calming the mind and relaxing the physical body.

Relaxation meditation is based on focusing attention on consecutive areas of the body and relaxing the muscles by tensing and releasing, until the process is completed throughout the whole body. It allows the mind to be eased of the

physical state of consciousness and enjoy a heightened sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

There are free meditations available for download on my webpage judithtehuia.com

  1. Having enough sleep

Sleep is just as important as food and water in order for our body to function efficiently. The problem is that a lot of us don’t get the amount of sleep our bodies really require. Sleep deprivation can lead to learning difficulties, lack of concentration, fatigue and often-impaired judgement which inturn can lead to accidents happening. Most adults require around seven to eight hours of sleep per night, so what happens if they only get six? This two-hour loss of sleep can have a major impact on how they function during their day.

Here is a list of tips and tools see which ones work for you:

  • Waking at the same time every day, and going to bed at the same time each night. Setting a routine really helps.
  • Try not to have alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine before bed, as they can make it harder to get to sleep, and cause your sleep to be unsettled.
  • Try reducing your TV or computer time in the evenings. Take TV’s out of your bedroom.
  • Try not to nap during the day, as this’ll make it harder to sleep in the evening, in saying that if your body requires a nana nap then have a short one, 10 minutes can make all the difference.
  • Exercise first thing in the morning, or on your lunch break, getting outdoors in the fresh air can do wonders. Raise a slight sweat when doing it. By exercising we release tension Sunlight can help reset your body clock.
  • Learnrelaxation and meditation techniques to help you switch you mind off in the evenings.
  1. Eating Well

You have heard it before, ‘Eating well is really good for you’. The reason you have heard it is because it is true.

Denise Linn, in her book the Mystic Cookbook said; “food is so much more than food, your approach to it, can open up pathways to spiritual renewal”.

Whenever you are preparing food, or about to eat it, treat the food with the respect it deserves. Make this time a joyful time not just a chore. Give thanks for it and eat with the intention that the food will heal and strengthen your body.

We need food to fuel our body but it is what we eat that makes the difference.

When you eat a well-balanced diet:

  • You will have a lot more energy
  • You will feel good and look healthier
  • Your immune system will function as it should
  • Your thoughts will be clear and you will find that you handle stress better
  • The likelihood of you getting diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease will decrease.

Having the right attitude goes a long way if you seriously want to change your eating habits. Work on changing your attitude and giving thanks. Using positive affirmations. Asking for help when you need it.

Here are a few tips that can help:

  • Take baby steps, just trying one thing at a time. Making too many changes at once can lead to disaster. Or no change at all.
  • Start with something easy, a piece of fruit or a salad or both if you want, on the first day. Just work your way gradually into what you want to achieve.
  • If you struggle with three meals a day break them up into 6 smaller meals.
  • Experiment with various foods and see which you like.
  • Try not to skip meals.
  • Don’t cut everything out completely just, decrease the amount. You are more likely to stick with eating well if you let yourself eat less healthy foods once in a while.
  • If you don’t like a lot of veggies juice them, this is healthy and you are still get your required amount of healthy food.

Learn to meditate in my FREE  meditation e-course will help reduce the symptoms of stress, getting enough sleep and with your general wellbeing.

Never Ever Give Up

Slide1

How many times have you just wanted to give up? Walk away and not look back. Some times it becomes all too hard and you ask your self why you are doing it?

There are other times when you probably need to go but you can’t, you want to but circumstances stop you.

I sit in front of the computer finishing the last chapter to my second book. I’m doing the homework that I need to do for the course I am taking. I set my self tasks to do each day so that I can get things done, and then out of the blue this voice comes into my head saying” what are you doing this for? No one is going to come to your classes, they won’t want to see you as a client”.

I have had times when I just want to give up, when nothing is happening and I think why am I doing all this work? I am tired; I have nothing to show for it. I read blogs where people are successful and they are getting a head and making a career out of their work. What am I doing?

Sound familiar, I’m sure it does to some of you.

It’s about this time that I think, “it’s time to go for a walk” which is where my crew in spirit decides to tell me what’s what. This is what they had to say.

“At one time those people who are successful will have been at this point that you are, don’t ever give up. People need to hear what you have to offer and if you give up what is that saying to them?”

I keep remembering what one of Reid Tracy’s the (CEO of Hay House) favourite sayings is “It takes 10 years to become an over night success” for some it maybe 5 years for others they may need to identify what being successful really means to them.

There will be times when you feel like this, but take sometime out to go and have a break. Catch up with a friend, have a chat on the phone to someone, or Skype, I do with my lovely online business manager Erin who listens to my verbal diarrhea and then does her best to get me back on track. Whatever you need to do, do it. As this time will pass.

¨    Tell that negative voice in your head to take a hike they don’t have a place in your life.

¨    Be mindful.

¨    Take time out to meditate it helps get things in perspective.

¨    Go for a walk.

¨    Have a chat to someone.

¨    If need be have a rest.

¨    In all cases take care of yourself.

One of the things that I find that works is find a quite place; do some breathing exercises. Concentrate on your breathing for a minute or two, and then ask. “What is it that I need to do in this situation?”

Your intuition will know, learn to trust it and use it often.

 Life is about creating your own backdrop

Mine at the moment is watching the blossom coming out on the pear tree.

Be strong, be true and never give up.

A Guided Relaxation Meditation By Judith Te Huia

Butterfly

How many of you meditate?

Have started and then stopped because it doesn’t work.

Have thought about it but find your too busy

Meditation doesn’t have to be long just learning to concentrate on you breathing helps to relax the body and mind. You don’t have to sit cross- legged on the floor. Just sitting comfortable on a chair is good. If you lie on the floor, you’re more likely to go to sleep, which defeats the purpose.

I can still hear, “but yeah I don’t have time for that”

Don’t you?

Have you ever stopped to think about what it can do for you?

Or what can happen to your body when under stress?

The Impact of Modern Living

“Our lives are full of stress: transitions, growing responsibility, our goals, our work. We hear about it in the media constantly. It’s almost become such a common topic that our eyes will pass right over it. We stop thinking about it and stop worrying about it. Or we stress about being stressed!  We read article upon article, piling on the stress while trying to relieve it.

It has been documented that most people will face a flight or fight decision at least 12 times a day. The flight or fight response is a response to acute stress that can adversely affect heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, and the general effectiveness of the immune system. Having the ability to focus on goals and clarity as to the successful out come of the goals can be achieved through inner calm and peace, a by product of meditation.

The Benefits of Meditation on our health

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools we have in our modern world. The benefits of meditation are many.

  • It is a naturally relaxing and healing process, which focuses on calming the mind and relaxing the physical body.
  • Many cultures have preserved some practice of this ritualistic technique whether it’s in the form of prayer, reflection, or moving meditation such as Tai Chi or Yoga. These practices promote advances from the normal levels of perception that may result in a feeling of union and greater wellbeing to the world around you.

There has been much research to find out how much of an impact meditation has in our everyday lives and health matters. It’s been found to hold such a wide range of helpful and healing benefits across a broad spectrum that it is now included in medical mainstream practice as a great way to avoid general stress.

  • In some cases, it has helped people to reduce their medications, in addition to pain management.
  • Reduces anxiety.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Increased Immunity.
  • Emotional Balance.
  • Increases Fertility.
  • Relieves Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Helps with the immune system.

Learning meditation was a lifesaver for me and I could not imagine my life with out it now. It does not have to be difficult.

The Forest Meditation

  • Close your eyes and ask for protection. (Creating a sacred space). Take a big deep breath; hold it to the count of six, release it slowly, repeat this up to six times.
  • Breathe in through your mouth and out through your nose, allowing your body to relax.
  • Now imagine you are on a path, it is leading through a forest, it can be any sort of forest that you like, because remember, it is your forest. It is a beautiful warm autumn day, the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour, you can hear them crunch under your feet as you walk on them, you stop and take a deep breath, you are breathing in all the smells of the forest.

 

  • You become aware of the trees and how beautiful they are, how majestic they are as they tower above you, walk towards one of the trees, put your arms around the tree, feeling the texture and the bark, feel the wonderful energy that comes from all living things in nature, step back from the tree and notice all the other plants that live in your forest, you are aware of the animals, they don’t seem to be afraid of you, you feel that you are becoming a part of your forest.

 

  • Sit down with your back to a tree if you wish, close your eyes, breathe in all the smells, allow yourself to relax, feeling peaceful and calm, you open your eyes and observe all life in your forest, feeling relaxed as you do, in no rush when you are ready, standing up slowly and as you do you can see a beautiful lily pond on the other side of bridge, you make your way towards the bridge and cross over.

 

  • Standing on the bank you admire the different colours, you seem to be drawn to one in particular. Go and sit on the bank near the water lily that you are drawn to, imagine that you are breathing in the colour; it fills you with peace and contentment. When it is time to leave the lily pond you realize that you are wearing a scarf of the same colour it brings you the same feeling of peace and contentment.

 

  • Walking slowly back over the bridge and along the path, you feel different, floaty and really relaxed. When you reach the edge of your forest at point you entered, slowly come back into your awareness; back into the room, and when you are ready open your eyes.

 

Sit quietly for a few moments, to allow yourself to become present in your mind and body. When we are doing any form of relaxation or meditation we go into an altered state of awareness so sitting for a moment allows us to come back into our conscious waking state.
