THE YEAR THAT WAS
This year we have lost a great pool of talent ranging from the incredible Prince, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, Jon English, Leonard Cohen, Natalie Cole, Gene Wilder, Nancy Reagan and very recently George Michael. As I contemplated the many people who have passed, I realised that I am also mourning my own father who is still with us but in many ways, as ill health ravages his body and dementia slowly but surely eats away at what made my father the person I love, I can’t help but feel that he too is gone.
EIGHT LIFE LESSONS LEARNED FROM DR WAYNE DYER
It is hard to believe that already a year has passed since the divine Dr Wayne Dyer left his earthly vessel on the 30th August, 2015.
I had only seen Wayne just over a week prior to his passing and was fortunate enough to have met him a number of times over the years. Wayne was my mentor and my spiritual teacher and he had a profound influence in my life. Before the teachings of Dr Wayne Dyer came into my life, I lived a life where I was constantly rushing and trying to cram so much into each day. I would sink into bed at night-time, exhausted but sleep would allude me as my mind went over the events of the day and anticipated the problems that might eventuate the next day (and of course with an attitude like that, these problems always showed up!!)
WHY MY DAD’S STORY LED ME ON A CRUSADE TO HELP PEOPLE REVERSE THEIR TYPE 2 DIABETES
I got into health and nutrition after treating my own serious illnesses through changes in my nutrition. Though I had always followed a healthy diet, there were certain foods that I was eating that were causing major health problems and when I eliminated those foods, my long-term illnesses such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and asthma went away.
WHAT REALLY KILLED PRINCE
No doubt, you were saddened to read of the passing of Prince at such a young age. For many of us, certain songs of his have served as a pivotal anchor in our own lives. I know that I grew up with a lot of Prince’s music and when I first heard about his death I didn’t believe it. I mean, how could he be dead as he was only 57?
