Greetings from Robbi

Dear Blossoming Hearted Ones,

This year seems to be sweeping along like a torrent and I thank all of you who continue to support my work of the heart and for your kind thoughts and words.

I believe that the current goal for us all could be to focus on how we can thrive and move beyond our limiting beliefs. When we are clear and connected to our spirit and passion we open ourselves to the potential around us.

Daily spiritual practice of some kind is essential to keep those energy fields humming along lightly and brightly. Essential oils of course have the capacity to do this in quite subtle ways and combined with consciously choosing to step up in the world and make a difference, your heart light will shine brightly.

The Blossoming Heart in China

Robbi Zeck ND in China - March 2009In March I visited southern China to run a Blossoming Heart Workshop and also to present a 2 hour presentation on my work to an audience of 500 people.

The lecture was based on my work from The Blossoming Heart and covered the power of thought, creating harmonious internal flow and using essential oils to enhance emotional balance.

It was an amazing experience to be in front of this large group which also included, journalists from national magazines and television, government officials and wellbeing representatives from across China.

A short while ago, I developed a series of Love, Grace and Gratitude movements that I am now teaching in workshops and to clients.

It was wonderful to be sharing this Love, Grace and Gratitude sequence with 500 people. It was an incredible sight and a powerfully moving experience indeed!

The Blossoming Heart Workshop that followed was a great success and I am very much looking forward to returning to China in December to continue expanding my work there.

Our host Xin-Yan is a remarkable woman, who several year's ago read the Mandarin version of The Blossoming Heart and as a result of her connection with my work and her desire to share it with others, was inspired to invite us to come to China. Jim and I felt honoured by the care and attention that we received and we were thrilled by the enthusiastic response.

Essential Oil Reflection - Lemon Myrtle

From the second edition of The Blossoming Heart comes the Essential Oil Reflection for Lemon Myrtle.

When you desire to explore leadership issues Lemon Myrtle offers strength, vision and perspective. Often we turn to others for mentoring and coaching. There comes a time in life though when we need to call on our own inner resources and be our own leaders. Imagine being your own CEO. What directives would you give yourself? Lemon Myrtle assists in moving you away from self-doubt and draws upon the resources you already have to access your own leadership resonance. Inner leadership supports you in living an authentic life.

The word doubt creates a provocative acronym:-

Driving Ourselves Unconscious By Thinking

Resourcefulness and certainty are important aspects of life. Interestingly, most people are really certain of their doubts. Do not let self-doubt impede your movement through life, for when your thoughts get in the way you can become bogged down, crippled by your own negative self-talk. This has a draining affect on the kidney energy. Be rigorously committed to monitoring your self-talk.

Let Lemon Myrtle lift your mood and create an intention to be your own positive influence. As you discover and express your own voice this will enable you to teach others to find their voice. Leadership always begins within. To inspire means to be in spirit, literally to breathe life into another. Be the inspiration you want to see in the world and remember to always keep the music alive in you.

The second edition of The Blossoming Heart continues to be very popular and if you would like to have your own autographed copy they are available via our Blossoming Heart Order Page

Aromatic Kinesiology Workshops in USA in 2009

Robbi Zeck ND in San Francisco - February 2009

We are thrilled to announce that we have now finished preparing for my workshop series to be held in the USA at the end of this year.

After speaking at the PIA conference in San Francisco in February, all of our plans came together and we are so excited to finally be sharing the power and simplicity of The Blossoming Heart with our friends in the USA once again.

Embedded in this work, through understanding the power of fragrance, is the gift of love and beauty. By activating your own heart light you can change and flow through life differently. The Blossoming Heart moves you away from pain, stress and fear while utilising essential oils to focus on your inner light and capacity for greater love. Every person can shine their own bright light out into the world.

Live By Your Own Design

This one day, small group workshop is for those who desire to create a vision for Success Full Living, incorporating clear strategies for designing a life focus and how to keep yourself on track.

By defining your life vision clearly and with intention, you will inspire the sprit, look and feel of your life - a life that genuinely shines. We then look at ways to support the seeding, flowering and fruiting of your vision.

How would you live, if you knew that your life was an unfinished work of art or piece of music? Live By Your Own Design offers a discerning journey within, looks closely at what is important in your life through a process of contemplation, inquiry and gentle, purposeful intent. The powerful effect of simply recognising your uniqueness can be pivotal in directing the flow of your life.

We held the first Live By Your Own Design workshop in Ballarat in January as an inspiring beginning to the year ahead. May Chang was our essential oil of choice on the day to enhance the learning environment and anchor us all to a feeling of success. The Blossoming Heart Affirmation for May Chang is "I am the light of my own success."

The next Live By Your Own Design workshop will be held in Adelaide  on Friday 9 October just prior to the IFA Australia Conference.

Bali Women's Retreat

The 2009 Bali Women's Retreat was booked out by early February and so we have now opened bookings for 2010.

Due to our busy teaching schedule we can only offer one retreat this year and it is most likely to be the same situation in 2010.

Many of you know that Bali is a place of beauty very close to my heart. Every year I am so grateful to be in Bali and recharge my own inner batteries in this lush green paradise. To share this special time with other women is always a highlight of my year.

Participant Comments:

"With heartfelt thanks for creating and sustaining such a wonderfully, nurturing, nourishing experience....seemingly seamless, giving loving attention to our inner and outer being, full of grace and allowing me release from responsibility to rediscover me!" ~ Jill Australia

"This was my third Bali women's retreat...and I thought the others were spectacular too! This is always the most rejuvenating, spiritually healing experience surrounded by the beauty of Bali and in the company of wonderful women. Thank you Sal and Robbi for sharing so much." ~ Rowena Australia

There are also some lovely new Photos of Bali on our Aroma Tours site for you to enjoy.

Aromatic Kinesiology - Ireland February 2010

Robbi Zeck ND in Ireland

I am looking forward to returning to Ireland in 2010 and continuing the journey with many of you who have attended AK 1 or AK 2 in the past.

My new AK 3 workshop will be completed later this year and will be taught for the very first time in Dublin.

AK 3 will cover many aspects of depression, how the subconscious mind affects the ability of the body, mind and spirit to open to all of its potential and thrive, the importance of self-love as an act of owning your power and of course I will be presenting some new essential oil reflections.

Further applications of the 5 Element theory of change and emotional flow, combined with using kinesiology as a way of hearing the body's subconscious voice, will make this another powerful and loving Aromatic Kinesiology program.

AK 1 is the pre-requisite for AK 2 and AK 3. The workshops can be attended out of sequence once the first workshop has been attended.
