Have you ever wondered why things can seem to get so damned 'complicated' and entangled? Why things LOOK like they are falling apart and nothing SEEMS to be going right?

Life can APPEAR to become an entanglement of situations, events and those things that are described as 'problems'.

It's those times when things just don't SEEM to be going your way and hidden agendas just raise their head to throw you off track. But WHAT IF those situations are not problems but awarenesses; attention getting messages that once you pay attention you may just discover what is being presented to you from a much clearer viewpoint.

Like the intricacy of a spider's web. So much work goes into it's creation and what do you think goes through the spider when it's creation gets damaged or destroyed? You really wouldn't anticipate that the reaction would be - "well that's it..... it's over......I'm tired of having my creation destroyed..... I never seem to get anywhere even after all of my effort.....I will never build another!"

Nope, that spider is not deterred by what has occurred. It just goes about building yet another intricate creation, but perhaps in a different location where it won't be damaged. After all, it's web is its mainstay in its ability to acquire its nourishment, therefore is a priority in sustaining its life. Choices are made on a daily basis that affect life on many levels and sometimes it just needs for us to have greater awareness paid to those choices. The old saying is "if you see something as a problem, it becomes a problem". That's because we place so much energy (thought and emotion) on that specific subject that it cannot but help with its development.

However, you CAN make the choice on how you RECEIVE.

You can perceive something as being debilitating, painful, hurtful, confronting - all of those descriptive words that are viewed through our survival mechanism that tell us to BEWARE - danger lurks!!! OR, you can make the decision to look beyond a fear reaction and receive from the perspective of something being an invitation or opportunity to expand beyond your normal confines.

That is, take that all important step outside of your normal square of existence and test the 'waters' of an adventure experience that may just lead you beyond the 'normal' limitations of reaction.

Stop; take a moment; breathe and ask yourself : -

What is being conveyed to you in this situation?

Is it indeed a problem or is it a valuable message that you need to pay attention to so that you can address it with confidence and a lightness of heart? Is it a fear that has been triggered and is ready to be healed? Is it an old conditioning pattern that has raised your awareness to the factor that perhaps you weren't aware that you had? Instead of viewing something as an immediate detrimental issue or position, perhaps shift your attention and perspective to a slightly more elevated view and look at it as a conversation that the Universe is trying to have with you so that you can continue to learn, expand and grow, and BECOME who you are meant to be! Survival is reactory. We have all been raised to react then think! When we think of danger or fear we react - it is nature and is our survival response.

However, it it isn't dangerous or danger is not imminent, then taking a moment to gather all of the factors before reaction, can basically bring us back to a position of grounding and stability. Thoughts and emotions are then brought back into alignment and the web of life becomes whole and complete, ready to respond by catching what is necessary for sustenance and well being.

Choice is a response not a reaction.

It does takes a decisive moment and inner action to bring thought and emotion together in a responsive and not sabotaging way, and it does takes practice. We do indeed have the power to make a choice in everything we say, think, feel and do! In fact, we have the power to actually change our minds if needed. NOTHING in life is 'set in concrete' and change is an energy that is always abundant, whether we like it or not.

Each day begins as new and there can be so much beauty in what is being presented to us if only viewed from that different perspective.


My name is Virginia Ede and over the years, since I began my Natural Therapies business back in 2005, my dedication 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 has become so much more than the physical and with this in mind, Maggie's Farm was created specifically to provide a safe healing haven for all.

All of my individual personal connections, workshops, courses, and retreats continue to revolve around healing, well being and most of all creating a life that is a much better experience, so Please join me to make for an unforgettable personal encounter!
