I recently had a Miracle with a capital M.   A few months ago I bought a book by Gabby Bernstein and started working through it – I went straight to the section focussing on healing our finances – since I had been asking for a miracle in this department!

I was willing, ready and able to go really deeply into what might subconsciously be blocking me from being financially free – and in particular, from living free of the pressures of a large mortgage (a pattern which had run through my whole life – however hard I tried).  Almost immediately I recognised a belief that I had never seen before …. despite many years of inner work.  There was that hit of truth when I uncovered it – that AhHa that is unmistakable when you hit the truth!  After a week of inner work guided by the text …. and a growing trust in miracles, …I got a call from the bank about my mortgage.

Now what you need to understand… is that a couple of years ago, the bank gave me a few months interest free to help me along.  Only they forgot to re-instate the interest.  Of course I knew I would have to pay the back interest but at least in the meantime I had a roof over my head. 

After the inner work, I had decided to come clean and ring the bank and tell them of their mistake.  On the day I was going to ring, the bank rang me!!  They were deeply apologetic (!) informing me that they had made a mistake, that they had re-instated my interest and telling me the monthly interest charge.  They were very sorry and hoped I was OK with that.  I explained that I understood and had in fact been intending to ring them that very day to confess.

With a gulp, I asked how much the back interest was going to be (I estimated it as somewhere around $25.000).  Oh no – said the miracle worker from the bank …. it was our mistake so we are waiving the back interest! – (this is the BANK we are talking about! – $25.000.00!)

A couple of days later, I got an offer of fabulously paid work which would also put a hole in that mortgage…. (are you getting the idea?)

Well, I was so excited that I started telling people, who then asked that I create a group and support them to work through the book …. and that group finishes this week.

Here’s what a couple of them have said along the way:
“I have been surprised by this group – the daily practices focusing on letting go of fear really build on themselves and life really starts synchronising with abundance.  I have experienced some real miracles like getting a new job and I believe this is because I am witnessing my ego and turning to love many times a day.  I feel loved up and excited!  Grace is an insightful and compassionate facilitator and also manages to bring delightful humour into the group process .  thank you and see you Wednesday Lovely Grace! and yes I have had another major miracle this week!” CH

“I feel I have softened and my heart has opened in ways I didn’t realise I could, if that makes sense. The focus of the book and the support of being in the group has suffused my life with a warmth and inner glow. I am loving it and will keep going beyond the 42 days. I highly recommend this for everyone.” CS

So – as this group finishes, I have been asked to lead another – We start on Wed Oct 2nd, when another 7 week journey begins.  Here are the details.

Working Miracles                 

A 42 day journey to a whole new way of life!

 By using Gabby Bernstein’s book as the text and working through simple daily enquiries and meditations, we make profound changes in our thinking and actions to transform fear into abundant love …

You’ll be surprised at how simple changes can lead to the miraculous in all aspects of our daily lives –  leading to inner and outer abundance, healing our finances, our relationships with ourselves and others, our bodies, self image and self worth – and eventually to miracle mindedness.

The course is fun and achievable. We use Gabby Bernstein’s book as the text.  In it she offers the compelling message that anything is indeed possible with a few simple shifts that almost all of us can make.

  • 7 wk program Weds 7-9 pm start 2nd  Oct
  • Fees $230: E.Bird $195 by 20th Sep -a copy of Gabby’s book is included in your fee.

The group will be a max of 8 and has 3 people already signed up, so if this calls to you, jump in by using the “contacts” page on this website  http://www.thealchemyoftheheart.com or email me at grace@thealchemyoftheheart.com and I will send you a registration form. You can register with a $50 deposit.

Blessings and Miracles to you all – I hope to journey with you

with love

Hello Lovelies – As many of you know, for a long time, I have been interested in the connection between our body and mind …. noticing how my own body is very clear about what it wants and doesn’t and what happens when I deviate from that – which recently was pretty full on.  I have also been watching my friends struggle with weight loss and the stress and pain of feeling deprived and not ever getting to their ideal, healthy weight.. I have noticed that if I want to lose weight, (for example, when I go back to UK to visit my slender sister! ) – if I diet, I always end up weighing more than I did before I started!

So it has become pretty clear to me that dieting is not the answer to losing weight and keeping it off.  I see friends dieting with enormous willpower, effort, struggle, anxiety, feeling deprived, counting kilojoules or points and Yo-Yo-ing the weight back on …… and yet I know that  our bodies are designed to know just what to do to return to health, vitality and our perfect weight.

So why do we sabotage ourselves, tempted by “forbidden treats” – dieting and then binging …..  what is it that is sabotaging and why?

I notice that there are times when I “feel like a little something” – This is usually the signal for me that there is something I am feeling, but trying to avoid ….. or maybe I am “bored” (usually because there is something I am not willing to feel!!) – or because I have forgotten to be amazed by life …… – there are many reasons for so-called “comfort eating” – My old friend Wendy used to call it “looking for love in the fridge”!

Since I know that the subconscious mind is driven by emotion, not rational thinking, I know that using willpower to “control” any kind of addiction is a slow and painful and ultimately mostly unsuccessful way of going about it.

The easiest way I know to get the subconscious mind on track, supporting our weight loss goals and not sabotaging them, is through hypnosis. So I set about creating a  program which  identifies and makes friends with our subconscious emotional resistance.  I then use advanced hypnotherapy techniques and language to release that resistance, aligning the conscious and  subconscious intent.  In this way as your subconscious re-programs, it naturally brings your body to its healthy, slim body weight without effort and starts to drop excess fat almost straight away. At the same time eating patterns change, as your subconscious directs you to foods and activities that feel good without a struggle.  Your body has its own wisdom and knows just what to do to achieve your perfect weight and health, easily and effortlessly.

The process

Is a mixture of self-enquiry, discussion and hypnotherapy.  The program is gentle, easy and profound.  The hypnotherapy sessions are very enjoyable.  In a light, delightful trance state, you will be comfortably relaxed but awake and able to remember everything that happens.  The whole process is deeply relaxing and at the end you can expect to feel empowered, enthusiastic and excited about your weight loss.

The program includes 3 hypnotherapy sessions and a CD to take home.

When:  Saturday 9th March 10 am – 3.30pm and Sunday 10th March 2.30pm to 4pm.

Where:  Ocean Shores South

Cost:  $195 – includes CD

Small group format – Numbers are limited to max 8 people.

Bookings are now open – you can book via the contacts page

This program can also be taken as 3 individual, personal sessions and can be held in person or by skype.

I look forward to a healthier, happier you.

wishing you love and welbeing
