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.

How not feel drained between clients

wallpaper-830417_1280

This is a problem that seems to be becoming more talked about especially for Healers, Empathetic Counsellors, Mentors, Intuitive readers and so on.

So what is happening?

Sensitive’s, emphatics and those who are intuitive are starting to feel things more deeply, sense things that they weren’t open to before and much, much more aware.

 How can we look after ourselves?

We probably all have some ritual that we do or protection that we use, but we are finding that they no longer work. Just as we need to up grade our virus protector on our computers, the same thing applies to our use of energy protection.

We need to change what is not working and be mindful of what our body is telling us.

  • If we need to have more time between clients then do so.
  • If our body says rest then rest, even a 10-minute rest, no reading, just closing your eyes and resting is good.
  • Make sure that you are doing some form of energy protection it is vital to protect your energy from others.
  • You may find you need more alone time.

Here is what I do.

and I also go into more depth in my free e-book ‘Taking Back Control’

I do need more alone time, a lot more. This year for me has been huge even though I have known what has been happening, it still hadn’t prepared me for how it impacted on my emotions and body.

  • I meditate daily.
  • I use the Golden Rose energy for protection, which I use in conjunction with clearing and grounding and they work. It’s quick and simple.
  • We have tested this little ritual, so you give it ago for a couple of days and then stop and see what happens.

I have included a link above to a video that explains all about how to do it and why it works. If you require more protection, as sometimes you will, I also cut cords at night before going to sleep.

  • Imagine that with a knife, you are cutting the cords that are attached to your chakra centres that are not yours. Making sure you do the back and the front of the chakra centres.
  • Then imagine they are going back to where they belong.
  • Send them back with love.
  • You can also imagine that mirrors all facing outwards are surrounding you. You can use what works for you or the lot. But they need to be done frequently.

See how you go and please pass this on if it helps.

 

“Meditation just isn’t for me” and other excuses that may be holding you back from an amazing mediative experience.

I can’t sit still! My brain doesn’t stop!

I just can’t meditate.

I have started and then stopped because it doesn’t work.

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?

There are different types of meditation

Moving Meditation

We may also like to try some form of moving meditation such as doing Yoga or Tai Chi. In moving meditation you learn breathing techniques, the importance of posture, movement, flow, balance, and being centred. The art of visualisation and imagery is also practised.

Relaxation

Relaxation meditation is based on focusing attention on consecutive areas of the body and relaxing the muscles by tensing and relaxing, until the process is completed throughout the whole body. It allows the mind to be eased of the physical state of consciousness, and enjoy the heightened sense of relaxation and wellbeing

  Visualization

This is a guided visual experience that involves creating a virtual reality scene within the imagination. This may be something like peacefully swimming with the dolphins or walking in a beautiful garden. It is a good place to start when trying to quieten your mind.

Just to name a few.

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
  • Anti- Inflammatory
  • Calmness

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.

T otal holistic approach

Y ou’re going to love it!!

You have no idea where you’re going in your life. You’re feeling frustrated, unappreciated and unsupported at home and at work. You are starting to feel like you have lost the connection with yourself and your life, which is so important to you.

You keep thinking there needs to be more and something needs to change but what? What can I change if anything? Should I just put up with it? What do I really want to do? What do I want to get out of life? How do I get there?

Above one of my clients wrote what they get out of a Clarity Session with me.

My approach is Holistic and Individual, as no two people are alike

No session is the same, as your needs are different from anyone else. But you will feel at ease and have a much clearer perspective at the end of the session.

We’ll spend 60 minutes together, by phone or Skype or in person. This time is yours where I will guide you through a set of exercises and questions designed to bring clarity to your jumbled thoughts and ideas. With both of us working together your direction perspective and balance will be come clear. Wow the relief.

This is all done with compassion and sensitivity and you will find it is never too painful.

Will you require more than one session?

That will be determined during your session.

Why work with me?

Hi, I’m Judith Te Huia, a Registered Nurse specializing in Mental Health, Transpersonal Counselor, Author, Clairvoyant and Medium and have the ability to get to the heart of the matter allowing people to gain clarity and direction. My mission is to help you find perspective again, it just got lost for a moment. Everything re-aligns, and you back in the driving seat again. We need you back in charge of your life, and directing the passion you have for your business, your family, your journey.

Clarity Sessions are currently available on Wednesday mornings, Australian time. If you know you’ll need a different time, please contact us before booking to check availability.

Investment: $100 AUS. Book here judithtehuia.com

By phone or in person

Clarity Sessions are valid for six months from the point of purchase.

I’m confident you’ll be delighted with our work together. You can’t, of course, know that for sure until you’ve actually experienced the session and I want to make sure you have nothing to worry about – which is why I offer an Investment Guarantee. If you fully participate (i.e. email the preparatory information in advance, attend for the full 60-minute Clarity Sessions, and engage whole-heartedly with the exercises and the process) and you’re not completely satisfied, email me within 48 hours of our session to request a full refund (minus PayPal fees if applicable).

What Happens Next?

You’ll be taken to my online calendar to book a Wednesday morning slot that suits. If our time zones are different we will work out the best time for us both.

Once your session is confirmed, you’ll receive an email asking for some preliminary information; this will help me to fully prepare for our time together.

Then, get ready for clarity purpose and direction.

The Top Three Stressors that almost everyone can get rid of

Our lives can be challenging and busy so anything that can reduce stress is beneficial to our healthy and wellbeing. I have included a few that I know have worked for me.

Morning routine

  • Set your clothes out the night before and make sure everything is set up for you to get ready in the morning. Prepare your breakfast if you can and don’t skip it, it really is the most important meal of the day.
  • Make the lunches for school or work the night before get your family to help.
  • A five- minute relaxation (breathing exercises sets you up for the day). Download my Free Meditation e-course com

Meals

Some tips on planning meals for the week and reducing stress

  1. Try and plan your weekly meals, as this also allows for a weekly shop and as you know what you’re having for each day there is then less stress.
  2. On Sunday nights or morning if you’re working nights spend some time working out the menu for the week.
  3. Place the menu on the fridge so you and the others in your house know what you’re having.
  4. Delegate some of the jobs. Peeling potatoes extra.
  5. Prepare ahead if you can. I know that there will be times when you are just too tired, but planning is the key to succeeding with being able to enjoy some healthy meals.
  6. Make lunch to take to work, it costs less and can be a lot healthier.

Work practice

  • My work practice is:
  • Meditation as it brings me into balance and I can focus on my important tasks.
  • I have a sheet of paper where I write down my three most important tasks the things I need to get done that day.
  • I also use Todoist, which helps keep things on track.
  • Emails, respond to email immediately, when responding keep to five sentences or less. Delete those you don’t need and categorise the others to keep your inbox tidy.
  • I spend sometime in the morning checking social media then check later in the afternoon. I found I needed to be really disciplined in this otherwise I could have spent half the day on there.
  • Take your breaks, you do not do yourself any favours by not.
