Oz’s Freshwater Beach 

All around the world, Australia is renowned for its beaches, and it isn’t €™hard to see why. With some of the longest stretches of sand-covered coastline in the world, Oz’s €™beaches are not only plentiful but also of an almost universally high quality. Aussies take care of and take pride in their beaches, keeping them generally clean and pollution-free, but with so many to choose from, how can you determine which beaches are a cut above the rest? We love all of them!

David Wilcock: THE ASCENSION PROPHECIES

THE ASCENSION PROPHECIESMultiple ancient cultures around the world have very elaborate prophecies of a “solar flash” – an epic release of conscious, living energy from the Sun. 

David communicates with detailed quotes from sources including Zoroastrian, Hindu, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Stoic, Sybilline, Jewish, Christian and Muslim. 

What we see is a remarkable through-line of connections that have seemingly never been made up until now. Each of these cultures was greatly anticipating a future event where human life as we know it would undergo a spontaneous evolution.
Many of these cultures predict the arrival of a Messianic figure arriving along with an entourage of messengers, such as  “angels,” with what the Hindus called the “Eight Super-Human Faculties.” Very clear predictions are made of an event where the sun gives off a brilliant flash of white light that will be visible regardless of where you are on Earth. The prophecies tell us that those who are ready will be brought into an immediate Ascension experience with the help of these angelic visitors who ride in on what the Bible and other sources call “clouds.”

Never before has David unified so many concrete sources of prophecy together in one talk and a stunning back- story of who was responsible for writing these prophecies in the first place and how they returned in the 20th century. The true depth of the information is far greater than even the skeptics could refute and is truly a stunning moment to hear these wonderful intuitive channelings.

An Interview With Vinie Kaur: Founder Of Yogi Bath & Beauty Collection 

We were very lucky to speak to Vinie Kaur, founder and CEO of Yogi Bath and Beauty Collection by Vinies Ayurveda™ . 

Yogi caters to people with a busy lifestyle by offering time-efficient and natural beauty products that will keep you feeling uplifted and beautiful. Yogi offers innovative formulations which contain over 30 potent, and effective, hand-picked herbs and plant extracts chosen for their potency. Every step in the preparation of their products is done with appreciation for the enlightening properties that transform your hair and skin.
Vinie Kaur was born to a traditional family in India immersed in ancient wisdom and healing technology. Her parents, Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. and Bibiji Inderjit Kaur, Ph.D., raised Vinie in a home that integrated ancient Ayurvedic principles into nearly every aspect of their lives. Vinie learned from a young age the inherent healing and therapeutic benefits that are in natural herbs, aromas, and essential oils. Over her lifetime, Vinie has absorbed herself in the study of Ayurveda; she worked mindfully with her father and gained infinite knowledge of the secrets of Ayurveda. In her own journey Vinie believes that “What You Put On is What You Put Within.™”

Your dad was a big influence in your life. Can you tell us about one of your favorite memories?

One of my favorite memories is of my dad cooking. My dad LOVED herbs and spices and actually both of my parents were great cooks. My mom was a world renowned cook. They both looked at food as a healing supplement. When we were in Espanola, New Mexico, my dad would go into the kitchen, where there were hundreds of spices, to create an Ayurvedic meal. My dad opened this, then opened that, threw this in and threw that in, like the wit, wisdom and sorcery of a wizard. Food was always created in no less than an hour. We always had about 50 people around the house and they always knew when my dad was cooking, as it was always a feast! Everything was SPICY, we would all be sweating, we couldn’t breathe, and my dad would say “Good for you! See, this is how it is supposed to be!” 
The aroma, the kitchen, the prana, its aliveness, the energy of happiness, and the healing always created a therapeutic meal. When my dad was cooking everyone would go into the kitchen and say, “Wow this is Yummy Food Time!” These were my favorite meals, such majestic moments. It brings tears to my eyes… such a beautiful time.
What was it that inspired you to create the Yogi Bath and Beauty Collection?

It was through my daily practice that I learned how herbs and oils possess inherent healing and many benefits. When I began to experience the pains of Fibromyalgia, and I turned to Ayurvedic compounds, healing herbs and essential oils for remedies and used them in my daily ritual. I soon began to discover the miraculous healing ways of these elements that are held in the wisdom of the plant kingdom. As I began to heal, I noticed that not only did the herbal medicines and oil applications relieve the pain associated with the illness, but my hair and skin also regained its healthy vibrancy.
As I regained my vitality, I began exploring the vast fountain of health and beauty secrets contained within these ancient, potent compounds of Ayurveda and I started to dive deeper into the knowledge of these healing herbs and oils. I started small by preparing formulations for myself and my family. I was developing a depth of knowledge and there was so much passion in my heart to share this wisdom.

Tell us about the Bhajan Body and Face Oil you created?
Bhajan Body and Face Oil was created from my desire to make one simple product with all of the herbs. Every product I make, I want it to be perfect. Coming up with names for our products is very important to me, we see it as once the name is given, the product has a destiny to be shared with the world. I named this body and face oil “Bhajan” because people who knew my father, can tell that this product has the same smell as him. Every time I see the bottle, I see love, and the aroma is so much like him. I had no intention to create it like that but it evolved by itself that way.
It contains both the vital energy of the plants and the positive energy from which it is created. The carefully selected plants are harvested at different times of the year to maximize their healing effects. The method of preparation combines dedication, love, and integrity with the purity of nature. The unique process of blending and brewing contributes to how well this oil delivers its therapeutic benefits.
How is the Bhajan Body Face and Oil created?
Firstly, premium quality plants are sourced and selected. In Ayurveda, a plant is regarded as containing five sections, each with medicinal value. Depending on the formula, between 1-5 parts of the plant are used, such as root, stem, leaf, flower and seeds. Then the plant is brewed for a number of hours. Over time moisture evaporates as the consistency of the plant changes, revealing the characteristic features of our oil and the radiant beauty that has been contained within it. Then it is bottled for your benefit.
The powerful Raja Restorative Hair Oil nourishes the scalp. Can you tell us how this deep scalp follicle hair treatment came into fruition?
Our products are for humankind and I saw a need for re-growing hair. Raja Restorative became the answer and acts as a scalp rejuvenator.
I find it fascinating that it takes many days to create the Raja Restorative, can you tell us a little bit more about the creation of this product?
It features bhringraj, known in India as the “King of Hair,” and it is also known for its miraculous effects. It helps with common concerns like receding hairline, baldness, dryness, and dandruff. It improves blood circulation in the scalp which helps revitalize hair follicles and promotes accelerated hair growth.

It is made by blending extracts of the bhringraj plant in an oil, similar to coconut oil. And again, as with all of my products, follow the Ayurveda way, where combinations of oils are infused with a combination of herbs. It is placed in a gigantic (heat-resistant) copper pot, as pots made from copper are ideal heat conductors. All of the ingredients are added and then they are slow-cooked for days and periodically stirred with a copper utensil. This slow process assures that the benefit of each ingredient gets infused properly.
Do you have a favorite herb, spice or aroma? If yes, why is it your favorite?

I do not just have one favorite, I have many. I love mixing smells, four or five scents at a time. Triphala, this might be my favorite actually because it is one of the most potent herbal remedies, with amazing healing powers. I also love turmeric. This golden wonder is a favorite because of its wide spectrum of medicinal qualities. It is so powerful. And then there is jasmine, I love jasmine!
