Hi Everyone

We certainly got to the end of year in a flash! I’m sure just like yourself, I’m really looking forward to some downtime with my beautiful family. It is time to flick that switch to ‘rest and relaxation’, and build up some new vibrant energy to take on 2017 with passion and excitement.

A big welcome to our newest practitioners that have recently completed their training on the Gold Coast and joined our dynamic Australian team! Please be sure to make them welcome when they jump out on the FB group, and please take the time to support them as they find their feet. Now that new practitioners are required to complete a case study (running the course with 1 couple), it takes a little longer to certify, so we won’t see the Gold Coast group certified until January at least.

“Like birds flying in a V, when we feel the presence of others moving along side of us, there is little we cannot accomplish.

This is the quote I chose for the end of this year, and as we prepare for the year ahead. We can relate this to the support in birth, family and our amazing team!

As they swoop, drift, and glide, inscribing magnificent patterns across the sky, birds are serene displays of grace and beauty. Long a source of inspiration, birds can be messengers from the spirit realm, or a symbol of the human soul, as they cast off their earthly mooring and soar heavenward. An upturned wing, a graceful flutter, all so effortless and free… More magnificent still is the inspiring sight of birds migrating, progressing steadily across the horizon in a solid V formation that is a singular pattern too unique to be mere chance.

Pushing steadily forward, this aerodynamic V reduces air resistance for the whole flock. With wings moving in harmony, the feathered group continues its course across the sky, covering more ground together in community than as individuals. When the bird at the front gets tired, she will move to the rear of the formation where the wind drag is lowest, and a more rested bird can take her place.

By learning from the example of our winged guides, all of us can feel empowered to take on daring challenges as we chart adventurous courses in our private and business lives. Feel the strength of others moving alongside you, as their presence lends power to your wings during this journey across the sky of life. When buffeted by unexpected gusts, we can choose to find refuge in the loving shelter of friends and family. We may even marvel as an otherwise difficult day passes by like a swift wind, as a kindred spirit charts a way for us through the clouds and rain ahead. If your wings begin to ache on your journey, look around for somebody else to fly at the front for a while. All of us move faster when we move together. Let your ego drop earthwards as we all soar ever higher!

Let’s soar higher together in 2017!

Thanks for a great year! I feel really honoured to work and support such an amazing group. On behalf of the Australian Steering Committee, I wish you and your family a magical and safe christmas. Let’s make 2017 a phenomenal year for HypnoBirthing in Australia!

I’m taking a break with the family, and won’t be back on deck until 23 January. I will be checking emails intermittently, but the best place to ask questions in the meantime is on our fabulous fb group.
