Thinking outside the box
THE PHILOSOPHER |TEACHER | STUDENT OF LIFE:
This is me: I am extremely passionate creative person intent on making this world a better place. I once heard the statement. " If you want to find your purpose in life - find your wound - for that is your purpose." I guess I must have taken that statement very seriously because that is where my own journey and healing began. Today my life is about facilitating positive change through Belief Change Management. Belief Change Management is using specific tools I have developed to access the subconscious mind in order to change patterns of behaviour in a way which empowers individuals to step out of self destructive paterns. I have a profound love of peace, synergy and beauty but mostly I live my life with solid values of honesty, integrity, compassion, empathy and service to others.
I love to make things beautiful, and that passion for creativity flows through my veins in ways which result in tools for positive growth such as TRUITY. I also write, I am a successful artist, I cook but my son will tell you I never use a recipe! I love anything which gets my mind thinking outside of the square and I love challenges.
When I am working on a project regardless of what it is, my mind takes in all the relevant information and within moments I just see the solution it in my head. With focus that concept pours out in ways to promote and uplift those around me. If you have not been able to find the solutions, you are looking for in life and business give me a call +61417722693. TRUITY the tool for getting to the bottom of problems - Belief Change Management. Currently I am working on adapting my product TRUITY to be used in Youth Suicide Prevention.
Heart and Soul: “Live your life from your heart, share from your heart and your story will touch and heal people’s souls.” Quote - Melody Beattie
I am a social creature and love facilitating change. To give you an understanding of why an ordinary woman has taken up the challenge of helping others I have written a brief overview of my life in a nutshell: When people ask me about my life what I do my answer is always, “it’s complicated.” I have had a big life, and it has come full circle. My family emigrated form UK at 3 years old. I was incredibly painfully shy child, and had difficulties reading and writing. I began painting at the age of 8, to this day I am passionately in love with colour and paint. My life has not been what people could call a bed of roses, but then maybe it was, just the roses were full of thorns. With a burning desire to fix my own life, and find some answers I began my quest to understand life, love and everything else in between. I married and became a mother at the age of 16. I am a survivor, cancer, domestic violence, depression and more these events turned my direction to becoming a Qualifed Remedial Massage Therapist. Still I had a quest to fulfil I wanted to do more, I wanted to stop the emotional suffering in people all over the world so I signed up for University but most of my knowledge came from the University of Life... When you yourself have suffered so much tragedy and sadness it can either make you synical and hard or it can create enormous empathy with others, its always our choice. My passion and sense of purpose inspired me to travel the world speaking with experts in their fields of spirituality and personal development. Against the odds I managed to secure an angel investor who granted the $1.M to develop the concept, and fund trials of a product. Which in 1994 had been nicknamed TRUITY between 1996 and 2003 the actual idea became a full blown project. You can find out more about all of that here.
Where Have I been? You might find yourself asking well what happend where did you dissapear too? I developed Cancer a few years back and so naturally my health came first. I stepped back to focus on family and health until in 2014, when I was ready to move forward again however fate had other plans, an unforseen accident stopped me in my tracks breaking my back and leaving me once again contemplating why life had handed me such a hard curved ball. Life will never be the same - I am a very different person as a result of what I have endured. The body may suffer but the spirit is stronger than ever and more determined to achieve what I set out to do. Today, I am back I still know my physical limits, however my inventive mind is stronger and better than ever, ready for new challenges. Sometimes getting on with life is the best medicine anyone can have, so my philosophy is somewhat like Branson - Screw it lets do it!
THE ARTIST IN ME: "Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one” Quote ― Stella Adler
Life has been an incredible, unbelievable journey, one which has encouraged and supported me to find my centre and in doing so my strength which has brought healing to my life. Life is not boring that is for sure, it has been a journey of multilevel understanding, wrapped in colour and texture spurred on by the fire in my belly to help others and defy the status quo.A couple of years ago I was involved in an accident resulting in a broken back. And for a few weeks I screamed at God, "why me?" Then I got on with life, realisind that the accident was Gods way of bringing me back to basics, and to slow me down and make me review my busy life style. At that time I made a conscious choice to return to my Art - the place where my journey began so many years ago. I thank God I did make that decision it was the most healing and profound conscious choice I could have ever made. My depression lifted, my heart began to sing and my health improved, leading me to understand this is what I should have been doing all along. Art is now my life – I teach Art classes also, and love this part of my life equally. Being able to share my passion with amazing people, creates a journey into magic. The magic of colour, the magic of letting go and the magic of finding peace inside. Every day wonderful people come to my workshops, and most become good friends. Paint has a way of healing everything, calming the soul, restoring peace and its magical formula of creating a network of beautiful people. My paintings range from Fluid Organic Abstractions in Acrylic, to Impressionistic Oils and highly textured Landscapes. Our home is filled with beautiful works, and I do sell my works to people all over the world.
Why I paint: "The purpose of art is washing the dust of our daily lives and souls." Pablo Picasso
I began painting as a child of 8 years, and my passion for textured oil landscapes always helped me find my way. I have lost count of the hundreds of paintings I have sold over my lifetime, and my work has travelled to all parts of the globe. In times of change I always returned to my art work, and photography to help me clear and process the emotions and gain clarity. After a bout of Breast Cancer and then the bizarre accident of slipping and breaking my back my life was very restricted. I needed a new challenge, so I set about exploring acrylic paint and the magic which could be created with mediums and simply mixing and pouring paint. The result has been spectacular landscapes and fluid abstractions all inspired by my ever growing love of colour and the magic of pouring paint. Currently when I am inspired or have the time I conduct Art classes from my home, the most popular is my unique, one day intensive workshop:
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.” ― Arthur Conan Doyle
Today I live in South Brisbane Qld, with my partner Murray and my son John, oh not to forget my beloved GS Cleo and 4 moggies - Taffy Cat, Sooty, Mr Smiggles and of course Pink Floyd. I do have 4 other children and 7 grandchildren. My life has been guided every step, everything happens for a reason although often in the process of the experience we cannot see why challenges come our way. Life is about finding clarity, finding a means to express your uniqueness and inner beauty. It’s all about the purpose the passion and being of service.
