Energise yourself at Mind Body and Soul Festival at Imbil this weekend
WHEN you decide to drive out to Imbil for the Mind Body and Soul Festival on Sunday EDS May 18, give yourself the time to visit more than one of the alternative practitioners who will be there on the day.
It will be a chance for you to "take stock" and assess your life on many levels, and you might be surprised at what it does for you.
Organisers include Reg Forbes, who is among the people offering services on the day at the Imbil RSL Hall, from 9am to 4pm.
He can demonstrate how soul numerology can "steer your boat on the sea of emotions" and as one of the "lightworkers" in Imbil, he is excited at the energy in the valley town.
Lightworkers, he says, are people who are led by "the spirit" and they are helping many people in the Mary Valley to cope with the fallout of the Government proposal to dam the Mary River.
"We can give you simple tools to deal with the big things in life," he said.
"No-one else steers your boat but you.
"We want to help people cope better with their health problems, especially emotional issues associated with the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam.
"Many are not coping with what's going on, and their health is suffering."
Reg left a 30-year career in nursing to research alternative therapies which, he is adamant, have the answers that the modern health industry cannot find.
"We can help people feel better and learn how to take control of their lives so they are not overwhelmed by what is happening to the valley," he said.
He said alternative therapies worked because they dealt with the "whole" person - their body, mind and their true selves, their soul.
"When we allow our fears to rule, we get sick very quickly, but when we let our hearts rule, we can see that many of our problems are self-created.
"Fears lead to negative emotions and set in process an incidious destructive process."
Fellow lightworker Cathy McVeigh also left nursing after becoming disillusioned with the culture of the industry.
She is pursuing her interest in meditation and is looking forward to welcoming more people into the fold at the Imbil festival. Her special gift is connecting with people who have passed over to the other side.
Janet Ronke began seeing spirits when she was a child and has learned to use her unique abilities to help people to help themselves.
She can help decipher dreams and channel energies.
If you spend a few minutes in conversation with these people, you can feel the energy they say is fuelled by pure unconditional love - the most powerful force in the universe.
Other services available at the festival include massage, relaxation techniques, reflexology, psychic art and animal readings and healings.
It is a good idea to arrive early in the day for the festival, so you can book in for the half-hour sessions, and in between visits you can check out the Imbil markets and the country atmosphere of the picturesque village.
The May 18 event is a precursor to a larger event planned for spring, when the local network will invite a special guest along.
