Compassion Required Australia

What are we doing Australia? Really, I mean it.  What the hell have we come to? What are we allowing to happen in this country?Mojgan Shamsalipoor4

Hon Peter Dutton, Minister for Immigration and Border Protection enforcing laws that do not see anyone as an individual. That separate a wedded couple and force a young woman to complete her schooling being driven from detention with an armed guard, after being originally released on a bridging visa.  Does anyone in Government care that this 22 year old woman studying at a school who was a prized pupil?  A woman who wanted/wants to become a midwife?

Men in high places, wearing suits, passing down their verdicts, will never know what it is like to be a woman, raped and torn apart by a step-father in Iran. Will never know or understand how it feels when  other males abuse and rape you again when in confinement.

Mojgan Shamsalipoor3Mojgan Shamsalipoor, my heart and many other Australian hearts cry out in despair as you remain separated from your husband Milad Jafari and in detention.  I am so sorry this government has no compassion. So, so sorry.

What I don’t understand is, what purpose does destroying two people’s lives, both of whom are not a threat to any living person in this country serve?  Can anyone tell me?

It is sickening, outrageous even, this continual, ongoing bias we have from and about each other as human beings. What is illegal about running away from tyranny, from dictatorship AND especially if you are female running away from beatings, abuse, rape and torture?

What I clearly do not understand is this.  If you have already proved your willingness to get ahead, educated yourself,  have set your sights on becoming a midwife, have blended into society, fallen in love and got married, then what the hell is this all about?  Does it really matter that this woman came here by boat?  That, in itself, would have been a terrifying journey.  It shows her stamina, her inner resolve, her respect for herself and the fact she was even born, to reach out and seek the best she can give herself in this life.Mojgan Shamsalipoor2

She arrives on Christmas Island.  She is released on a bridging visa. The bridging visa expires and the best we can do after she sets a life up for herself, is to tear her away from her husband and schooling and put her back in detention?  Come on!  Then to top it off, take her from Brisbane (where her husband could at least visit her) and fly her to the Northern Territory.  What is the sense in all of this? She is a human being!

When will we as a people have a government that shows compassion?  A government prepared to build bridges instead of lumping all immigrants (legal or so called ‘illegal’) together as terrorists because of how they came to this country.  The people at the top are so fear driven, their mindset so far removed from any sense of humility and understanding. Totally disconnected from what it is like to be human with any compassion whatsoever. Such arrogance!

I want those in high places to recognise all humans as sentient beings.  Hell, even New Zealand recognises animals as sentient beings.  This country is falling so far behind the rest of the world in so many ways, it is an embarrassment to us all.

Now about those young human beings being detained in the Northern Territory and sprayed with tear gas!   Bloody hell, time to build an ark and make our escape!

Confessions of an Oil Addict!

Wild Orange

Wild Orange

Five years has passed since a bottle of dōTERRA’s Wild Orange CPTG Essential Oil was thrust under my nose and I took a whiff.  Oh boy!   The smell! The fragrance!  The heady scent from that bottle I was now holding in my hands. No words can describe adequately what happened to the olfactory bulb in my brain. My emotions, my feelings were all on super alert. I was feeling high!!  I wanted to drown myself in the aroma. I was smitten.  Wow!

My addiction started there and then!  In all the years I had been using essential oils in my part time massage practice, I had never, ever smelt anything so pure!

dōTERRA oils are CPTG oils meaning they are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Oils. This is important as it is what separates this particular brand from all others. It means the plants from which the oils are extracted have been properly harvested and processed and are free of contaminants.

If you absolutely knew that natural plant based products, such as dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils helped, without doubt, contribute to your health and all over well being would you use them?  You see, we are so western medicine orientated and have been brought up to believe that that if you feel “off” then take a pill or see the Doctor.  Don’t get me wrong Western Medicine is great and it is necessary.  I do think the Pharmaceutical Companies that push drugs (prescriptive or otherwise) onto us have a lot to answer for.

We could, if we chose, consistently contribute to our well being by using Mother Nature’s options first in the form of these essential oils.  Then if that doesn’t work, take the next responsible step and visit your Doctor.

Essential oils are not absolute, (nothing is), however, they are an affordable, natural option which with consistent use are likely to be a worthwhile preventative against succumbing to every ill and virus that surrounds us in daily life.

Toxic overload these days is common.  So is extreme stress.  Whether we are a parent, an accountant, a corporate leader or a truck driver, we all experience stress levels that are not healthy, and let’s not forget students, especially around exam time. So, become addicted.

Petal Diffuser 2Essential Oils are used in three ways.

Try inhaling by placing a drop on the palms of your hands, rubbing them together and inhaling the aroma, repeatedly.

Or topically by massaging oils into areas of the body that are tired, tight, aching, and need tension release.

Finally diffuse oils in any room that you work, reside or sleep in.

I extend a dōTERRA CPTG Essential oil diffusing challenge to you reader.

Diffuse in your lounge room, work office, bedroom every day (or night) for 30 days and I am sure you would notice a difference in your mood and overall wellbeing.

Try stimulating oils for work such as 4 drops Lavender and 2 drops Rosemary.

To Lift your spirits try 2 drops Peppermint, 2drops Wild Orange and 2 drops Lime

Need fresh air? Try 2 drops Tea Tree, 2 drops Lemon, 2 drops Lime

For relief from hay fever or sinus try 3 drops peppermint, 1 drop lavender, 1 drop Eucalyptus and 1 drop of Orange

Need to feel energised? 2 drops Rosemary, 2 drops peppermint and 2 drops lemon

Finally here is a good footbath remedy after a long day.foot reflex doterra

Place the following drops of dōTERRA  oil on ½-1 cup of Epsom salts so they can be absorbed, BEFORE putting hot water into the foot bath.

Use 2 drops of dōTERRA Tea tree essential oil which has natural deodorizing and anti-fungal properties, 2 drops Lavender is known for its wound healing properties. Then 2 drops of Eucalyptus which is a very powerful anti-bacterial oil with anti-viral properties. Eucalyptus is an excellent immune-stimulant and is good for feet that are tired, aching and sore

Have fun with this.  Become an oil addict too!

Mollycoddling – What’s at stake?


Being a parent is a really tough job. There is no right or wrong way.  There simply is no training in book form or in the upbringing that one self has, that prepares you for the day you too, become a parent. I feel my daughter is a much better mother than I was. Even […]

I am not an avid news reader or watcher, however, no matter who your friends, workmates or acquaintances are, most are ready to say “ Did you hear about…..?” Usually, these people are referring to […]

child refugee

Let’s review the refugee crisis. A few months ago pictures of dead children on a beach galvanised the planet into outrage and a show of compassion that was loud and vocal.  Then for a moment, just a moment, the leaders on the planet came together and looked at how they could play their part in […]

What does 11:11 mean to you?

How Death Can Be


Even though there is no such thing AS WE KNOW IT as Death… I had to post this tribute of Wayne Dyer’s daughter Saje.  If only, daughters, loved ones, EVERY son and daughter (in general) were brought up to KNOW from through their parents and through their inner self, that when a parent makes their […]
