Hot Summer Months

Many people leave Hong Kong at this time of year to escape the heat, relax and unwind on vacation or just to escape.  This gives everyone the chance to reflect on whether they are truly doing what really fulfills them.  Is this really the path you want to tread.  Recently I have been meeting quite a few people that are ready to change career and lifestyle to achieve a more fulfilling life, to connect more fully to living a spiritual life, right here and now.  If this is your desire then try applying the Law of Attraction:

There are just a few basic steps.
1. Get very clear on what you want

2. Visualize and raise your vibration about it

3. Allow It

4. Take inspired action


You must be very clear on exactly what your desire is. Focus on it.  Give it all your positive energy. Feel good! A major factor behind this Universal Law is the energy and vibrations of our emotions and feelings. Any thought you may have, when combined with emotion, vibrates out from you to the universe and will attract back what you want.


The Secret
I really must tell you about this great film.


The Secret is released to the world! This ground-breaking feature length movie presentation reveals The Great Secret of the universe.


In this astonishing program are ALL the resources you will ever need to understand and live The Secret. For the first time in history, the world's leading scientists, authors, and philosophers will reveal The Secret that utterly transformed the lives of every person who ever knew it... Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Einstein.


The Secret reveals amazing real life stories and testimonials of regular people who have changed their lives in profound ways. By applying The Secret they present instances of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

The Secret reveals how to apply this powerful knowledge to your life in every area from health to wealth, to success and relationships.


I highly recommend this video it is all about the Law of attraction.  A trailer may be watched for free or you can download the whole video by going to


Ikaika - I stand in my power

I stand in my power today as a Aloha Mana Teacher.  I have now completed teacher training in Hawaiian Bodywork which includes the traditional Lomi Lomi Massage. I have even conducted my first Hawaiian Shamanic Bodywork Course.  We all had a great time and I was truly blessed with lovely students who fully embraced the idea of Aloha.  Perhaps I may share one of the students comments:


Mahalo Valerie for such an awesome 4 days! Iíve had Lomilomi performed on me before but most certainly not in the manner that you so beautifully and inspiringly taught. It was an amazing adventure of Lomi love, light and learning. I had been wondering before the course what the spiritual energy aspect of it was. When it came, it simply tingled down. And I can still picture the amazement shown in my Lomi partnerís eyes as she too sensed the energy as I completed the blessing for our client at the start of the Kahi Loa Sequence practicum. The forehand strokes that followed were eye-openers and once grasped they become, as you had explained, natural flowing movements that went automatically with the flow and intuition. My own hamstrings are now much less tense and taunt for which I must thank you for showing us the joint rotation techniques. I look forward to Hawaiian Shamanic Bodywork, Lomilomi II. Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo


Pets got the ITCH?

Animal Aromatherapy or Essential Oil therapy is the use of essential oils to help enhance physical and emotional well-being. It is believed that we all know on an instinctive, perhaps even cellular level just what it is that we need for our physical and emotional health and our animals are probably even better at this that we are. This is demonstrated so well when you offer an essential oil to a horse. Usually it will sniff it intently, first with one nostril and then, if interested, with the other.

The right side of the brain is connected to the left nostril and is responsible for "feel" and more emotional responses while the left side of the brain is connected to the right nostril and deals with "rational thought" and all things "cerebral". The sense of smell is linked directly to the Limbic system, which acts as a message relay to many of the body's vital systems, and so any information carried from the nose is passed on, processed and acted upon.

Essential Oil Therapy for animals is normally given either by inhalation of the oils, or by topical application.  Whatever method is used, the most important thing is that the animal has the choice to either accept or reject the oils and they should only be administered in the correct dilution and with care, respect and knowledge.
