F.E.A.R. and LIFE

Gidday! I must say.....There is SOOO much going on around us, good and not so good, and many are feeling the effects! It is difficult not to and there are those of us who can be suffering physically, mentally and emotionally, especially when it comes to the escalating fear that encapsulates and drives thought processes and reactions. Fear has many connotations - F.E.A.R. - FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL is an obvious one. Fear is also important as it alerts us to danger but Amazingly enough, fear holds another meaning and is about paying attention! Fear - pay close attention and don't dismiss until you become aware of what is being presented to you!!!!

It is a natural emotion that is hardwired into our brains for our survival and activates many responses within our body.

Unfortunately for us humans, we tend to hold on to and do not release our building survival emotions (which most of the animal kingdom has the capacity to do) and it ends up affecting us on many levels - mentally, emotionally resulting in very uncomfortable and often distressing physical issues. Trauma can be one of those issues and it is amazing just how many individuals experience such sometimes long term concerns not knowing how to deal with them let alone know how to heal them!

Not a pleasant nor comfortable experience at all BUT if we learn to work with and through this emotion then we have the greater capacity to learn to become more expansive, compassionate and better individuals.

As a natural therapies practitioner, I have learned through many of my own experiences that NOTHING is set in concrete and that reality can be a mere illusion...... so by focusing upon what I truly want to create (and NOT what I don't) as well as holding as strong as possible in positive and optimistic intention, then what I call miracles happen and often! Loving natural remedies and approaches as I do, I trained in Bowen Therapy for humans and animals (Equine, Cat & Canine Muscle Release Therapy), Reiki, Australian Bush Flower Essences, Empowerment Coaching and now Trauma Release therapy.

These innovations have given me the most amazing invitations into healing, restoration and recuperation which then led me to my next most amazing adventure - the creation of my healing and educational sanctuary Maggies Farm, which not only provides a home for a variety of adopted rescued animals - horses, goats, dogs, cats and chickens - but is also a haven for animals AND humans alike and is affectionately called "Home for the Expendables".

There are empowerment and healing courses being designed; books, inspiration cards and meditation cd's to create; closer connection and interaction with animals to expand upon and an amazing healing property to move to!

What has any of this got to do with FEAR?

Well......FEAR, anxiety, dread, trepidation and panic are so much in evidence in our current environment that it seems that this is all there is! With survival being so instinctive it can bring you to a grinding halt where you might just find it extremely difficult to become mobile again!

This is a way too normal reactive result and all of us have experienced it at some stage.

FEAR could and would have stopped me at any given time..... however, like any good puzzle, with attention, persistence and perhaps a dogged determination, fear can also become a huge catalyst to propel you forward into areas and prospects that you may not have normally encountered or braved.

FEAR is not to be feared but given attention to like any emotion - ENERGY IN MOTION!

Pay attention, allow yourself to experience the emotion (but not get bogged down in it) and then decide what the message is that your emotion is presenting you. And when the answer comes, give yourself permission to take action in the most positive and beneficial way that you can.

All emotions are to be experienced for one reason or another.  Just because it may give some discomfort does not make it a bad experience...... just an experience that has present itself to you!


Introducing myself - My name is Virginia Ede and over the years, since I began my Natural Therapies business back in 2005, my passion has always been focused upon assisting in the discovery of a gentle release from pain, stress, anxiety and other such physical issues through the means of non invasive modalities such as Bowen Therapy, Reiki and Australian Bush Flowers.

As is in most cases, things shift, change and grow and the journey that I now share with others has transcended beyond being just about addressing the physical pains and discomforts that we all experience at times.

It now includes the reconnecting to the simplicity of our true authentic being, initiating those marvelous healing processes that are much more achievable as well as sustainable.

I created Maggie's Farm to be a safe haven that encourages the processes of all manners of healing and the transformation that follows. ​

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a deep and loving connection with animals and it is now that I am more able to combine my specialised practitioner skills with the intuitive and instinctive healing expertise of my animal family.

Please join me for an unforgettable personal experience!
