In 1917 Dr Edward Bach collapsed during his rounds on the ward where he cared for injured soldiers. He was rushed into surgery, a large tumour was removed from his bowel but he was told that he had, at most, 3 months to live. He returned to work, and later in life he always maintained, that it was his sense of purpose and his belief in alternative remedies, the healing power of the natural world, that saved his life. His research into homeopathic remedies eventually brought him to understand that it wasn’t only the physical properties of plants that healed, but also the more ephemeral parts – what the great shamans in the indigenous tribes across the world already knew – the essence and the spirit. Of Welsh descent, he returned to his heritage of healer, and reclaimed the knowledge of his land. In his first remedies he used only flowers, as he felt they were the highest expression of the plant. The most important ingredient though and one of his original 12 healers, was pure spring water, or as he called it: rock water.
Rock Water is part of the designated cures for Overcare for Welfare of Others. In our lives we all have people who need us. It is a wonderful thing to be present for others, as healers we know this calling to our compassion. It is a noble and kind gift to the world. Yet, when we become dependent on that feeling of being needed, when our ego drives us to ‘be strong’ and ‘please others’, even to our own health’s detriment, then we have to listen to our bodies, and our souls, telling us to be kind to ourselves. If we are constantly exhausted and tired, we are no good to anyone, and in dire danger of falling ill ourselves. Rock water was recommended by Dr. Bach when we “deny” ourselves “many of the joys and pleasures of life” because we may be afraid that it interferes with our work. I use Rock Water from the White Spring myself, charged up with the required hours of bright sunlight, to recharge my batteries and plan a more ‘conducive to health’ workload. Rock Water gives us clarity of mind, it allows us to see when we fall into unhelpful and unhealthy patterns.
Use the remedy whenever you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed by the sheer amount of tasks waiting before you, but also take time to find a brook, a well, a spring and sit by it, taking time to watch the water babble over the stones at the bottom, and throw in your feelings of inadequacy, of not being enough, of needing to be needed, in order to count in the greater scheme of things. We all know about the cleansing properties of water here in the Goddess community, but this knowledge is by no means ours alone. Dr. Bach’s recommendations, and his use of spring water in every remedy, shows us that this is one of the most important carriers of healing in this world of ours.
Dip your hands into the cool water, let it rinse over your palm (healing chakra) and over your wrist pulse, letting all that does not nourish you flow into the water. Allow it to show you how truly amazing, capable and wonderful you really are.
Bee – Bach Flower Practitioner at Goddess House
What is Lomi Lomi Massage? It is a style of massage that originated many generations ago in Hawaii and practised in families long before the missionaries came. They said it was sinful, all that touching on naked flesh, and banned it. But like other Polynesian traditions, such as the beautiful Hula dancing, it did not die out because of European decrees, but held securely in the hearts of the people until it was safe again to bring it back into the world. As with all things indigenous, there is a danger that the secret arts will be stolen, bit by bit, until they become the property of others, so for a time there was a reluctance to share with westerners. The men and women specialists in lomi lomi and spiritual keepers of sacred traditions held various lineage styles, handed down to new initiates in a complete form so the traditions would not be lost or watered down. Bit by bit they began to train western therapists in their art, rooted in Hawaiian philosophy of Aloha or Love. In many schools the initiate must keep to the traditional style, but this is hard for a flowing healer to resist creative improvisation as this too emanates from the heart. Styles then are ever evolving as each initiate grows in their art. Lomi Lomi means massage, to rub, to squeeze, to stroke and smooth, to claw like a cat on a blanket. It is a dance incorporating the movements and breath of the giver to keep the energy flowing and responding. It is a meditation, deeply connecting soul to soul as the giver moves over the receiver’s body. Lomi Lomi moves energy through the body, it moves the fluids of the body – blood and lymph- restoring their natural flow where they have become stagnant and blocked. It works deeply on the muscles, gently pressing, stretching and pulling so that the fibres and tendons relax and become supple once more.
Imagine you are by a sea, listening to the waves as they fall against the shore, maybe lying on the beach and feeling the water ebb and flow over your body. That is the rhythm of the lomi lomi massage, ebbing and flowing as hands and arms glide back and forth at a pace and pressure that is hypnotic and soothing. When the receiver surrenders into the flow, the experience is deeply nurturing and emotionally nourishing. This is a massage that is truly in the domain of Domnu, mother of the oceans, mother of the waters, the moon and the tides. Lomi Lomi offers her gift of cleansing, balancing, releasing, renewing through this queen of all massage styles.

What it is?
This is an electronic device based upon quantum medicine, that measures the frequencies of electromagnetic waves signals sent by your body.
A healthy liver will emit a very particular electromagnetic frequency, which is the ‘normal’. An unhealthy liver will emit a different frequency and the device will recognize and record this difference.
The analysis gives the results as an indication of abnormality in your body cells frequency.
How it works?
It considers that the electromagnetic wave signals emitted by the human body represent the specific state of the human body.
These signals are different under the different conditions of the human body, such as health disease, etc.
If we can determine these specific electromagnetic wave signals, we can determine the status of the body’s life.
The most fundamental reason of falling sick is that the spin of electrons outside the atomic nucleus and the orbit change. Explanation:
The analysis gives the results as an indication of abnormality in the cells frequency, being the actual deviation from the normal/healthy electromagnetic radiation.
How you can benefit from it? – It will show within 2 minutes:
- Deficiency of the basic bio-minerals, vitamins, co-enzymes your body needs
- Blockages in the body’s main organs and systems
- Breakdowns of energy flow in meridians
- Level of toxicity and heavy metals
- Plus health care suggestions can be given for necessary treatment

A healthy balance of Fire within each one of us at this time of year translates in playful and joyous interaction, a dynamic force that is met with optimism and excitement. The Heart is home to our Shen, our spirit. A strong spirit shows in our whole presence, the way we act and conduct our lives. Life becomes more sensual at this time, and the increasing warmth brings us new vigour and zest for life. Warmth comes not only from physical heat, but also through the interaction of friendships and relationships. We come together to celebrate and share the emerging fire within us. Summer time moves us into the wider world as we find our place within it, letting our Fire become an act of communication and communion. The Heart, our own sun within us, sings with joy, yet dark shadows may loom as this sun is hidden and our Heart becomes oppressed. Just as there is an expectation of the sun’s presence at this time of year, it is a disappointment when it fails to appear. This can be noticeable within us as well.
Are you feeling the free flow and abundant expansiveness of your life force, or are there still some cobwebs to clear? Through acupuncture and Tui Na massage, Ann can assist you in unblocking stuck energy, so you can feel the fullness of your being. By inserting hair-thin needles into specific points on the body, acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and connective tissue, activating the body’s natural ability to come to balance. Acupuncture also greatly helps with keeping seasonal allergies at bay. Tui Na massage or Chinese massage uses a wide range of techniques, with the aim of removing blockages, releasing stagnation, improving blood flow, losing tension and easing the mind. Tui Na is also very effective in treating acute or chronic pain in muscles and joints, wear and tear and is excellent for stress relief. These modalities leave you feeling your life’s flow more freely, more abundantly, a return of vitality and passion for summer.

Our bodies hold electromagnetic energy that circulates along energetic pathways. Many different factors (life!) can cause these pathways to become blocked. By inserting hair-thin needles into specific points on the body, acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and connective tissue, activating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. During treatment, you commonly experience a pleasant feeling of relaxation. Acupuncture is most effective when applied as a course of treatments, and we explore the condition of your entire being during the first appointment, so we can reach beyond symptom management and address the root of any health issue.
