Grazia Martienssen, shares her memories as a child and her personal journey with us as she develops awareness
Vanessa Anderson has always loved words but like many artists, the vision and the results can clash, recently she has learnt to forgive those indiscretions and just write - because hiding in the message may be a reader desperate for just those words. Sometimes the writer is the paintbrush, not the artist.

My 10 Second Rule
by Franky Van Den Berg
We often lose focus on what truly matters in this life. The fast pace of life, along with an increasing need for everything to be rushed and to be constantly improved. This can place tremendous pressure on one and we are often entirely focused on the task and requirements at hand and in the process we place our well-being, opinions and health at the end of our list of priorities. I too was trapped by this unhealthy way of living until my health caved and forced me to reconsider my ways. Since my wake-up call I have had .... Read more
Ada Den Hollander
The ego likes drama, being dissatisfied, feeling unhappy, blaming others and complaining. If we let ourselves be guided by our ego, we live in the illusion of the past (everything was better yesterday) or the future (where is this going?). The past nor the future have anything to do with reality (I will write more about that sometime), with the now, the present. When we live in the now, our ego ..... Read more

Speaking a Truth that Hurts
by Karin Kelly Lawrenz
We are humans who depend on relationships to survive. As adults, we rarely choose to deliberately do something that will hurt people we know. We especially avoid sharing a truth face-to-face that could embarrass, offend or wound someone we like. The next time you are anxious about sharing an observation that could hurt, first ask .... read more

Dad was a hairdresser and a barber by trade, he was also a Jack of all trades. People would call him to fix their appliances, for which he refused to take money. He made beautiful chandeliers for the house and many other things. He also had “out the box” ideas for recycling things e.g. a curtain rail became the top of a railway type gate for our driveway. He always wanted to learn .... read more
Coping With Mental Illness
by Deborah Jordaan
What I'm questioning these days is - Am I responsible for relationships going wrong or do people just not know how to support me? I really try my best to have a relationship with a partner but it gets to a stage where I become withdrawn and think that it's him not understanding me - so I go quiet. Is it me rejecting people because I'm antisocial or is my tolerance level reaching boiling point? I know in my logical mind that it could be me rejecting them because of things happening in the relationship. My mind tells me .... Read more
Age of Aquarius (Part 2)
by Elsabe Smith
If you are familiar with crop circles, you will know how these crop circle patterns have told a story over the last two decades that have become more complex and more fascinating every year. And if you thought that crop circles only occur in European countries, think again. There have been crop circles in parts of Kwa Zulu Natal ..... Read more
Finding Voices in Sunlight
By Vanessa Anderson
When I was a child I spent a great deal of time alone, thinking, it was definitely a time when I was more mindful, less rushed by the expectations of life and the noise around me. It was certainly a different time, things appeared more black and white, complex issues seemed more easily digestible, those that weren’t were not a problem because I had more time to apply my mind to it. Then we went into lock down and the hustle and bustle of normal life ground to a halt, suddenly ..... Read more
Welcome to the Age of Aquarius (Part 1)
by Elsabe Smit
Guess what? We are right inside the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. But what does it mean? The constellations change to a new zodiac sign roughly every 2 150 years. The dawning of the Age of Aquarius indicates that we have been coming out of the Age of Pisces, and we are now entering the new Age of Aquarius. Did this happen in March 2020? Or before that? Or even in the previous century? Apparently, astrologers ….. (Read more)
The Meaning of Life
Franky Van Den Berg
I'm known by many names: Franky, animal activist, microbiologist, the forever student, personal trainer, aspiring power-builder, vegan, spiritualist, pagan (wrongfully named by ignorant beings not knowing of better) or witch, cancer survivor, motivational speaker (although I still stand by that I'm only pointing out the facts), miracle...and all are true. I was an average human being, a personal trainer and student who enjoyed the typical things in life: spending time .... Read more
The Gift of Fear
Karin Kelly Lawrenz
Fear, after all, has allowed humans and the rest of our mammalian family to survive eons, to survive unspeakable dangers. At its core, fear protects life. It fights for life. Many think it is a life-stopping emotion, but think of the many times fear has kept you or those you love safe. Think of the times it has .... read more
It's a subject very few people talk about. What I'm going to write about is based on experience from friends and family members and of my times as a carer. The way children treat their parents.
A parent works for something their whole life and their children want without any idea of what their parent went through to get what they have. They forget it took the parent years to get the business to success.... read more
