I Live, Love, Hawkesbury and can’t wait to get into today’s episode.
I’m Rachael Goldsworthy and welcome to the drive home to Hawkesbury, where I believe every home has a story and I love sharing those stories on real estate in the Hawkesbury with you. Here we share the best ways to add value to your property, how to avoid the common mistakes people make when buying and selling property, and how to get the maximum return on your investment with a focus on supporting local business. I live love Hawkesbury and can’t wait to get into today’s episode. Let’s get started.
Good morning, good afternoon or good evening depending on what time you’re watching this broadcast. I Rachael Goldsworthy and I’m on the drive home to Hawkesbury and today I’m super excited because I’m joined by Melissa falling turn. How are you, Melissa? How are you? Yeah, really good. I’m. I’m super excited because we’ve got. We’ve had you on the show before and you gave us so much information about holistic living and being a little bit more spiritual and grounded and and to that aim with the segway through to the holistic wellness and spiritual expo that you’ve got coming up this weekend. Tell me about that.
Oh, it’s so exciting. It’s going to be amazing. Um, I’ve came together with one of my good friends who is the events manager at North Richmond Panthers and um, put together this wonderful event to really connect people with the holistic wellness lifestyle, um, and connects the industries, you know, the businesses in that industry as well. So it was kind of like a networking bit of education and inspiration for people. So it’s going to be fantastic.
That’s awesome. And I can hear kids in the background and I think that we can bring the kids on Sunday with this as well, can’t we?
Absolutely. It’s open for everybody. Men, women, children alike. Um, there’ll be a little bit of something there for everyone. So it’s not targeted to anyone. I’m just like group or anything like that. So there’ll be something there for everyone is going to be amazing.
No, that’s terrific. So can you give people a little bit of a secret, a little, a little bit of a letter of what’s actually gonna Happen? Who’s gonna be there? What are we going to learn?
We have so many. Well, we’ve got a very wide variety of vendors coming along, so apart from myself with the essential oils, um, I’m also going to be running a women’s circle table as well, so educating people a little bit more about connecting women, um, and yeah, just honoring that ancient tradition, that sacred tradition. Um, and then there is obviously going to be yourself. You’ve got you have a little next to me right next to you because I think that that’s where the jams going to be tomorrow and Sunday night. So hopefully we’ll have some really cool musicians playing and there’s going to be an opportunity for all the vendors to present if they feel like they’d like to do that. Um, we’re going to have some great talks, educational talks about the industry. We’ve got some kinesiologists, lots of crystal is massage. Um, we’ve got a show manic kind of native American stalls happening. So Tarot, reading, all that sort of spiritual staff, that’s going to be amazing.
It’s going to be awesome. The energy in that room. I can almost feel it already. I’ll just read it.
It’s amazing. I’m going to go in there and stage it all before we start, so it’s all good,
clear and it’s so important to clear that space and even with real estate in some of the homes that we look at, you know, selling for people or managing and the changeover of the energy from one to another. People don’t realize, and you will probably be able to tell people more so about this, but they don’t realize that everything’s energy. You know, your furniture’s energy, your energy, your house energy, what’s in your house is energy. So if you’ve got good vibes into the property or you’ve got a clean slate, when you go into it, you just feel great walking around and enjoying that space. Whereas if you’ve got yucky stuck, negative, awful energy, it can be a, you know, not the best art. So it’s always good as you say, decide the house before you get started. And I’m so pleased to hear that you’re going to be staging the stage and also the expo area so that everybody could have some awesome energy and really pick up on that, on the die. So that’s terrific. And um, tell me what, what is your, I mean your, your women’s circle, we’ve spoken about this before, you do this quite often and it’s such a great thing and I’ve heard some terrific feedback from the people that attend them. Tell the people listening that you know, may not know about what a women’s circle is and what’s the principle behind it and what can people expect to get out of attending a women’s circle.
Okay. So everyone will take something different depending on what they’re looking for and what they’re needing. I’m basically a women’s circle is a very lost ancient, sacred tradition where women come together and they do a number of things, you know, I mean ancient times, villages were run by women coming together and discussing all sorts of things happening with the village. Healings would take place. It’s a safe space to share and to celebrate milestones in life and to support each other through everything that happens in life. And so that’s what we try to, to put together in our women’s circles today, which just about connecting and I’m like, it feels like home to me, you know, facilitating this and holding space for women to come and shed the layers, shared this in and really live in their true authentic selves. Um, yeah, it’s a beautiful process.
Were you, like I said, you shared what you don’t need anymore and that leaves room to take on more positive aspects of life. Um, and so yeah, everyone gets something different out of it and each circle will be themed differently depending on what the moon’s doing or what I feel drawn to some. I’m putting together some at the moment working with crystals and the archangels, which is going to be beautiful. Um, but yeah, that’s that. It’s such a broad scope. I also do baby blessing way, so that’s kind of like rather than having a baby shower, it’s kind of like honoring the mother and that whole process that our bodies go through. It’s so beautiful. And you know, self matrimony and bridal circles and it. Yeah, the list is endless. You can do so much with it and it’s such a spiritually uplifting beautiful thing to do.
Yeah, no, I think that’s great. And I was watching the balloon go behind you with the kids up and down and and I think that that’s kind of like the energy with all of us at different times throughout their life. It can go up and down, but by having a women’s circle and coming to that women’s circle, I’m sure as you said, you can see those ways. You can talk about things. You can get it out there and then just new slate. Let’s go from this, let’s make things happen and I think people underestimate what you can achieve together as opposed to I’m going to do this myself and I’m just going to do this all align as opposed to somebody who wants to go on that same journey with you. Even though there might be on a different path, they still want to achieve the different things in their life, whatever that might be in it might just be sitting quietly with yourself over a nighttime for 10 minutes and being okay with it.
Absolutely, and that’s what society is like these days, you know, we’re so go, go, go, go, go all the time. And we are, we kind of are segregated from people in our village like in it used to take a village to raise a child and now we’re just doing it all by ourselves. So as women we tend to take on all these labels like mother wife, you know, boss corporate later or whatever, you know, whatever the labels are and said that by coming together in circle we get the opportunity to shed those labels and just be a woman and be in that divine feminine and it’s such a beautiful experience. You know, we have the meditation and the creating side of it and just being and finding, tapping into what really, what, who you are and what you want and when you actually stop and think about those questions, they’re quite profound and they’re quite triggering. But taking that time for yourself and you know, attending a weekly or fortnightly or monthly circle. So fulfilling, so fulfilling.
And if somebody wanted to get involved with the circles that you do, what would they expect? Would it be like an hour at a time or would it be a couple of hours or does it depend on, on the, you mentioned sort of weekly or monthly or quarterly, whatever, to tell us a little bit about that.
Okay. So generally my, my circles tend to run between 90 minutes and two hours depending on the theme and the content. Um, but every circle that you attend will be different. Obviously everyone brings different energy. All of my circles that I’ve run have all been completely different in the energy and everything, but it’s, you know, it’s, it’s very diverse. So if, if it was to say be a weekly thing, you know, you could probably the benefit of doing it weekly is it you really get to know and connect with the group that you’re doing it. So it’s not just like a one off where you might meet some amazing people and then that’s it. It’s kind of really it. It deepens that connection and that process. It’s really quite nice
and I guess trust increases as time goes by. It’s like any relationship, you, you spend that time into the emotional deposit bank and, and the more time that you spend with somebody, the more time you want to spend with them because you share things that maybe nobody else knows or are you, they’ve earned the right to know what you don’t know necessarily shared with everybody and it would just be a safe place to do that, which is terrific.
Yeah. It really is to become a container for whatever you know, you need to put into it. Really. Um, and yeah, it’s, it’s just, it’s something that you really need to experience. It’s such a beautiful thing and I’m so honored that I am able to, to bring this to women and to share this with women. You know, it was something that I was, I was looking for, but there was, I couldn’t find anything in my local area. So I thought, well, I’m going to do this. And I did my um, women circle facilitator course with image and Bailey and I was amazing. She’s a fantastic facilitator and leader and she’s an amazing woman. And honoring heart is her, um, her company there and she just does wonderful things with and for women. So if anyone’s interested in, in doing that, then I highly recommend it.
Big shout out to image and as she’s watching, um, and also I believe Sandra’s watching. Hi Sandra. She says hi mill and Rachel sees Sunday she’s coming along to the expo, which is, I go, no, it’s really exciting to have Sandra on. And also the other people that are here. Hi Barbara big hello to you. It’s kind of like romper room isn’t it to use and we’ll see you in the surf, but um, it’s a bit of fun and it’s a bit of, you know, um, I think it’s just sisterhood and as you said, miles aren’t excluded from it as well. I mean I’m sure it’s different places that we can all catch up and certainly the expo is all inclusive. So anybody that wants to come along on Sunday, I’ll be there on Sunday as well with mill hot seat right next to the mill and her crew and on bringing along with them.
And Michelle Segar, she’s also an expert in bowel biology. Her and her husband live in Castle Hill and she specializes in funkshway and also bound biology, which is all about the study of the home and that the healthy home and making sure that, you know, if you have mold issues, how that affects that child or that person in the house, the sickness that you find, um, you know, people think I, Carol moved into this house and I just can’t get rid of this cold or I’ve got this cough for hit eight that I just can’t move. And then when you start to analyze and you get somebody in like Michelle to have a look at the actual house, he goes, oh, there’s water coming through this wall or there’s a private sleeping or there’s some sort of mold in the area or you might be exposed to electromagnetic fields, which is causing you those headaches. And you wouldn’t even realize that if you weren’t told about those sorts of things. So it’s going to be fascinating having Michelle there. Um, I’ll, I’ll also be helping out with the funkshway and all things healthy homes. And, and happy homes as well because it’s all about making that environment really happy and you know, it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to make it your own home and make it. That’s it, you know?
All about the energy. And also, um, you know, also about your oils even. I mean, I know in my office I’ve got a distressed oil that I use, I’ve got, you know, an uplifting oil. I’ve got to thinking oil, you know, and, and I should really talk to you about that more because I’d love to get you in to consult on what oils we should be using specifically because you’re the expert in that regard. And I think it makes a big difference. But when clients walk in Nice little site, the first thing they say, oh gosh, this place smells beautiful. What, what’s around here, what’s going on? And, and um, you know, you’re probably the best to speak to in that regards, but if somebody wanted to lift the energy of the price was sort of oil, would you suggest that they would use as a, you know, every day and maybe a special one for once a month or once every couple of weeks.
So all of our citrus oils are really, really uplifting. We have some beautiful blend in our range so you can just do the basics like wild orange or lemon or Bergamot. Bergamot is a beautiful, subtle but powerful oil. Um, and that also helps with, you know, self esteem and everything really making you, I’m very comfortable with who you are. So it’s uplifting, but it’s really relaxing at the same time. It’s kind of, it’s kind of like an earl grey tea. That’s exactly what it is, you know, it’s like the Burger Ma, it’s like uplifting but soothing. Um, and yeah, and then we’ve got some beautiful blends which is all of our psychiatrists who say elevation is one of my favorites and it’s called our joyful blend and it’s just, it’s literally joy, but always in a bottle. It’s a beautiful, um, but even like you pick them up so you minty scent and everything, they really uplifting thing. Everything pepe. Um, and again we’ve got some beautiful blends, but wild orange is actually been proven to boost sales and real estate agents. So there you go. Having wild orange in there in the foyer going on earlier, it’s been actually been scientifically proven. I can get your paperwork on it that it boosts sales. So
there must be something in that because when I went to the states everything was pretty much that and the biggest sales push that I’ve ever met, you know, they, they know how to sell things, they know how to market things and um, you know, obviously we get a spin off from that, but that’s really good advice. And maybe while I’m, while I’m always attracted to that orange scent because it’s a really special st and I think it’s, I love peeling an orange, always remember as a kid, and I don’t know about you, but my dad used to teach my sister and my brother and we all used to sit, stand at the kitchen sink and we all were given an orange and a knife and you know, we’re meant to create a toilet seat. I don’t know whether you had the same thing but you feel this way, but it is just try and peel the outside of the orange off and then we slowly got, you know, ripping bits of flesh off and everything along it.
Right. And you said, okay, the final piece is you’ve got to slice the top and then make a toilet seat. So that’s our mind. Okay. We’re making a toilet seat, so make a toilet seat. Yep. Perfect. Okay. Perfect. And I get the same from that is just boys love your lines or any urop. It’s kind of like even um, yellow writing peds. It’s for the creative in a yellow color that your habits for the brain, it makes you think creatively and get through into things. Same thing with citrus, obviously with the lemons and so I’m going to be fascinated with everybody that’s going to be out there on Sundance. Super excited because it starts at 11:00 is 11, 24 and we’re the pan.
Yeah. Yeah. We still have some spots available. If there’s anyone out there who has anything in the holistic wellness and spiritual, um, kind of industry that you’d like to showcase. Just I’m just trying to think how to do this. Probably best to jump onto seven, 10 essentials purely by nature and send me a private message and I can give you all the details. We actually really, really looking for a musician. Someone to come and play the guitar. Yeah. Just someone to come and um, promote themselves, you know, it’s a, um, it’s not a paid Gig, but it’s a really good chance at getting networking out there and getting future future bookings and stuff like that. And just to bring a really nice, cool rely of vibe. Yeah. Really Mellow, kind of poke and validated, so if there’s anyone listening out there, if you know anyone who’s good with a guitar and got a get a good set of pipes and then the my way or we’ll make it happen.
Exactly. Fair. And maybe your kids. I’m not too sure. Any of those people listening online that have a musician or a budding musician that wants to get out there and be part of the community for a very special day for the wellness expo. That would be awesome. Melissa, would love to hear from you. If people wanted to get in touch with you before the expo or after the expo. Melissa, how can they find you? What’s your website address?
Okay, so it’s probably best off instantaneous response through facebook worldwide,
like minutes, literally minutes if you
follow seven, 10 essentials, purity by nature. I’m anyone interested in the women’s circles side of it. It’s called white light to women’s circles and you can find us on there and um, give us a lock and a following. Send me a private message and I’ll get back to you pretty much straight away.

So that should be really good. Janine such done such a wonderful job in getting everybody together and all of the people that are going to be speaking, there’s going to be a talk on, um, I think by tyler he’s actually talking about real estate and dragon veins.
