In 2008, I was very ill and extremely overweight, I was depressed. In the same year my partner, Christel, gave birth to our first child and I realised that I needed to get my body healthy. At the time I was managing a youth accommodation agency and working long hours. My diet was very unhealthy and couple with the stress from work and being a new parent, I crumbled into serious digestive illness with constant acid reflux. We spent hundreds of dollars working on healing me, but nothing seemed to work. However, everything changed when I was introduced to raw living foods and cultured foods. My health improved within weeks and I experienced such high levels of energy that I began to run three times a week and move my body regularly throughout the day.
Within six months of living this healthy lifestyle, my body was at its correct weight and I felt light, fit and healthy with no acid reflux. I studied everything I could on living and cultured foods, devouring every book I could find on the subject. Christel and I attended seminars, webinars health conferences on line. I completed various online training courses on raw nutrition and health practices and I was so enthusiastic about sharing the knowledge I gained with others. We created a business called Living Raw Lifestyle and began to facilitate workshops in living food nutrition and Earth Wisdom.
In Christel and I felt we needed to change the name of the business as we no longer eat raw food only diet and the business was morphing to include a more Shamanic and Vedic perspective. While I studied both these traditions and both inform my life and that of my family, I trained in various Shamanic or indigenous spiritual and healing practices. I spent years in training and still consider myself a student who is forever learning and awakening to greater depths of knowledge and wisdom the Earth and creation has to offer. I knew that Mother Earth was opening us to something big and this something big, is exactly why Christel and I and our children came to this planet.
So, I asked Gaia what is the nature of our business, knowing that we would be working in collaborating with her. She explained to me that the whole purpose of the business is to bring people into their divine heart coherence and from there we would further assist them to connect with the heart of the Earth. Gaia explained to me that we will be assisting people to be in divine heart to heart coherence with Mother Earth or the spirit of the Earth we know as Gaia. We are here to assist people to connect with the Mother Kingdoms; to resume their sacred stewardship over the Mother Kingdoms and assist in the expansion of creation upon this planet.
She also explained to me that humanity is of Gaia, the spirit of the Earth and therefore we are Gaian, or Earthling. Given the nature of our service to humanity, the Earth and life, Gaia suggested we could call ourselves: Gaian Heart Wisdom. We loved it and took it on.
