How to balance your mind, body and soul with ayurveda

Ayurveda Healthy Living


After experiencing a 21-day Panchakarma Healing, I am not an expert like Dr Sujatha or Dr Remil at the Amtra Siddhi Ayurveda healing centre. All I can tell you is I highly recommend you finding out what your body type is and following a diet plan.

The three body types are:

Vata = Air and Space
Pitta = Fire and Water
Kapha = Earth and Water

Each of us has a very different body composition and digestive needs…

How to be a pearl fisher

While the spiritual journey I write about in this book started in 2000, I had my first taste of it back in 1989. My partner at that time worked for Shell International and every recruit at Shell had to attend a Time Manager International Course. My partner went on the course and returned so enthused, he exclaimed, “Dawn, you need to go on this course”.

The aim of the course was to help you get the most out of your life. It showed you how to set life goals and plan how you were going to achieve them. It also taught many life skills to bring health and happiness into your life.

The two skills I remember..

How to calm your mind with mantras

The Magic of Mantras

In 2012, Lionel and I went on a course run by the Bright Path Ishayas called the Ishaya Ascension 3-day course. It impacted us tremendously, in particular at finding inner peace. I highly recommend the introductory course as it is so simple.

You are taught how to develop a unique mind mantra which you repeat over and over again in your mind.
On the course, we enjoyed this for hours and hours. It removes all the mind’s chatter, distractions, worries and thoughts…

How to connect with nature

We cannot emphasise enough the importance of you spending time in nature, consciously connecting. Go for walks, notice the seasons, what is happening all around you.

Notice the activity in nature, the circles of life, the abundance of life, the natural flow of life.

I believe it is important to find your nature, your soul’s nature as this will be one of five elements in your soul and this will determine what makes your soul sing. What element in nature really nourishes and nurtures your soul?

How to discover inner happiness with chanting

Another one of my favourite mantras is also a favourite of the Dalai Lama’s. It’s called ‘Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu’ and it translates to:

“May all beings be happy. May my thoughts, words and actions in some way contribute to the happiness of all beings.”

Feel it, feel the feeling that everyone will benefit from our lives. It’s so wonderful to know that we can make everyone around us happy…..

How to divine with cards

I would say that this is one of my favourite pastimes and the inspiration for my life’s direction. I am specifically talking about Divination Cards sometimes referred to as Oracle Cards. They are a pack of cards with deep inspirational messages on. I think the first Divining Cards I ever purchased were Animal Spirit cards. Wow, did I get a lot of use out of these cards, they helped me make so many decisions in my life…

How to divine with your body

I first learned the art of body divining with my amazing Feng Shui teacher Robert Gray. With body divining you tap into the universal intelligence or divine source of all information, instead of using your logical mind, to acquire your ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers.

 You can use this for so much. To assess your authenticity, to assess your current vibration on the Vibe Scale…

How to nurture your spirit

This is a big one, you need to think back to when you were a child, what did you love to do? So many times, as we grow, we disconnect from that childlike spirit inside us that wants to be nurtured.

Write down your memories of any of the wonderful creative things you did as a child. Was it drawing, painting, making things, cooking with Mum, woodwork with Dad, walking in nature, going for wild swims, paddling in rivers, making sandcastles or burying each other in the sand, cycling, skipping, dancing, singing or sewing perhaps….

How to transform darkness into light

Expose your inner darkness, accept it and forgive it.

I am writing this part of the book whilst on a flight back to Manchester having been away on my own. I had reached the point of exhaustion at home; I was the heaviest weight I’d ever been, and my happiness factor was low. I was lethargic and completely out of balance. I knew what I needed to do, yeah you know it too. Retreat.

My soulmate, Lionel, took charge of all my caring duties and the causes of my stress (mostly regarding my mother) back home….

How to use a divining rod

Dowsing and divining have been a part of the skills I have acquired on my journey over the past twenty-five years. Using them is a matter of understanding their value and the energy they carry.

What is Divining? Divining, also called dowsing or radiesthesia, can be used for finding things and answering questions. Everyone can divine. It is a skill that can be honed and perfected. Divining with parallel metal rods (L-rods) uses the movement of the rods to divine an answer..
