Aloha greetings and blessings, dear friends,
May this be your best year ever in consciousness and spiritual growth and may you in all ways find yourself well and joyous!
As always and once again Spirit has guided our big moves, this time to spending more time in NZ than expected. My news is of getting grounded here in Auckland (on the ocean in Red Beach ) in the following ways:
Getting a NZ phone number 09 947 0404, and cell 021 055 1120
Being full-time caregiver to my 90 year old mother, and getting a course –fascinating – in end of life issues, death and dying in our society
Starting up yoga classes in several centers, Orewa and Albany
Continuing healing sessions in person and by phone
Being an actress again, landing a role in “Bird”, a short movie; more information below.
Enjoying Hawaii being part of a Hula Halau
Going Salsa dancing
Loving growing a little vege garden
Writing and completing a book proposal
Getting messages from the birds and the trees
And as always and most important, enjoying the ongoing inner emotional healing work (using and developing Antion’s healing worksheet system) along with a sustainable lifestyle of simplicity loving living with less!
Hawaii , oh my! it was hard to leave, we clung to Hawaii ! We had been uprooted from our beloved Kauai already, now it was a challenge to extricate ourselves from beloved Maui . Was it my deceased father who kept turning on overhead lights and lamps in the middle of the night, to get our attention to boot us on? And I was afraid Mum was dying before I could get there.
She needs me – what a trip learning about this age of a 90 year old getting ready-or not- for her transition. So we are learning to accept and enjoy being in Aotearoa (it’s been a long hard, hard and cold cold winter) and to just love from afar the homes and friends everywhere else that I miss.
In our hearts we live simultaneously in two places, and at the moment our plan is to be in Hawaii, Seattle, Canada, Santa Cruz etc next summer May-August of 2010.
It has been at first a lonely effort to get grounded here in NZ, and now we are meeting lots of interesting people. Antion enjoys giving music and chant to the wonderful Hula Halau, they are performing at festivals, he put up video and photos on YouTube and facebook. (Facebook is an amazing way to share Aloha energy when there is not enough time to connect personally or even to write newsletters as I used to.)
We have been welcomed in several “spiritual homes” to teach Yoga, present music and sound healing. At Yoga Orewa, (our closest little seaside town) and at the amazing 19 acre retreat center nearby, Kawai Purapura, owned by Wellpark Natural Therapies College, home to a community of 90 people, and a huge wonderful space to enjoy Yoga and devotional music.
Antion (known as Vikram Singh amongst the Indian community) also regularly gives voice to this side of his musical passion and expertise in the Gurdwara temples which number six in the area.
To my great amazement I am back in showbiz ! After putting up my profile on www.Starnow.com/elandrakirstenmeredith within a month I landed a role in a beautiful poignant short film by Great Southern TV and Film called “Bird”. The producer is best producer of the year; the award winning directors are a couple, sensitive lovely people. The filming is highest quality real film rather than digital, shot at a yoga center, ready by midyear.
