Listen to a heart felt story of connection with water and its sacredness.Hear his greetings of goodwill and tears, how indigenous peoples respond to water that nourishes – our living planet PapaTuanuku our sustainer.Though the Earth is in trouble, it is we humans who need healing. Our planet, though continually abused, sings us awake every morning by birdsong, and flowers opening.We are the water carriers, water vessels shaped as clay, and as man and woman, we need to come back together to coalesce in aroha.Mike has a local river called Tara ariki, passing by his house, this is his connection. Where once gold and silver miners polluted these arteries, Mike has been the river's advocate -- one man's journey to stand for the creeks, rivers and streams for 25 years, to clean up what are sacred waters.
As an avid clay worker, he uses this medium to express his connection with Mother Earth and the beings that share this world.A passionate man calls to reconnect with the water and the song in our being -- and the water outside our being -- and become one with the great cycle of existence with family and community.
What makes a young New Zealander want to have his own radio show that after less than a year is on 24 radio stations, 23 of them outside of New Zealand?How is it that other non mainstream media is making inroads towards the populace who are fed up with mainstream media, because of the lack of real news, depth and background information and that there are fewer and fewer NZ journalists and actual news services in this country?To have a revolution in ‘consciousness’ within society, you first have to have a revolution in media to facilitate the revolution in the mind that translates to the revolution on the street – that is the goal of Vinny Eastwood of the Vinny Eastwood show.com - NZ’s leader at the forefront of Guerilla media – leading people with insightful news and comedy at the cutting edge of what’s happening here in NZ and exploring the underbelly of NZ politics, media, justice, corporate fraud and take over and anything else that links into the shadow and helps us to see the lighter side of genocide!Why is it that a growing number of global citizens are wanting to know more about grass root situations, localized community and self sufficiency and in particular at the other and of the spectrum, what the New World Order really means? And that as things get better and better, things actually get worse and worse! Why are solutions not being actively sought from the community, or supported by mainstream media, with more positive feedback, yet bills are now being rushed and rammed through Parliament under urgency? Why the urgency?
With talk of Corporate takeover from the forced amalgamation of Auckland as a super city, to the mining of giant deposits of a massive lignite coal field in Southland, to oil and gas exploration off the East Coast of NZ, the continued sneaking in of genetic engineered organisms into NZ, and the recently passed Copyright Bill, with a Security and Intelligence Bill hovering over us, the ordinary NZer feels that we as a small country are under assault from the machinations of big business and offshore manipulation of our Sovereignty.Hence the rise of guerilla media and alternative news to say that there is another way at perceiving what is maybe … or actually - really going on.http://www.thevinnyeastwoodshow.comhttp://www.guerillamedia.co.nz
Imagine New Zealanders being able to have easy access to a huge nationwide network of every health and healing modality available.From Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Osteopathy, and Naturopathy, plus Massage, Aromatherapy, Iridology and Chiropractic. Today we have Alexander Technique, Bowen Therapy, Hellerwork and Rolfing plus Feldenkrais as well as the tried and true herbal elixirs, potions and tonics and many methods to detox us and eliminate poisons from our body.Going further, we also have vibrational healing, like Bach flowers, and plant and crystal essences, and even colour therapy, plus medical intuitives and many variations of hands-on spiritual healing.Why have so many methods of healing? Because the current allopathic medical model is failing us due to it’s near total emphasis on selling us drugs and pharmaceuticals and treating our body as a machine with no soul.
With 9,000 certified holistic health practitioners and healers in NZ, listen to how they are organising themselves into a vast community network to be able to efficiently and effectively play a critical if not a pivotal role in keeping us healthy and focusing on preventative methods and thus being at the ‘top of the cliff' and not the 'ambulance at the bottom of the cliff’.This is where personal responsibility for ‘one’s health of one’s temple’ is taking us during these times of awakening to our body, mind and spirit.GreenplanetFM 104.6 Thurs 8-9am 14th AprilJonathan Callinan The Wellness DirectoryExpert Practitioners @ Your Fingertipshttp://www.thewellnessdirectory.co.nz
Do you receive signals from the Earth to be aware of future events?Is the food you eat abundantly nutritious?Our planetary biosphere is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest possibility - an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy, now and for the future.The desire to generate a balance of living has motivated Tim to change his life and speak out about the lack of balance on Earth today. Covering the Earth's cycles, natural farming to restoring the acoustical vibration of nature.
What would it take for farmers to be in communion with the rhythms of the earth and nature?From 3am to 3pm the earth is exhaling (outward energy). This energy has an effect on every thing on this planet. From 3pm to 3am the earth is inhaling (inward energy).For example; have you ever noticed a stream or a creek running in the morning when it is pouring down rain, will run extra fast and higher and it can still be pouring down rain in the afternoon but the creek has gone down and is not as high. This is because the earth has an outward energy in the morning, so the water runs off the earth quicker and in the afternoon the earth has an inward energy so it is pulling the water down soaking it into the earth.What is the significance of these two forces?WE HAVE CHOICE. We can maintain the consumption of life or we can be the Celebration of Living! Which one will you choose?EventAustralian Access Consciousness Facilitator & Sustainable Farming expert ~ Tim Bothams will facilitate an evening of gifting you tools and questions that can be applied immediately to have you access a greater sense of peace amongst the chaos that is currently occurring.When: One night only!

This morning we continue last weeks forthright discussion with Dr Bruce Lipton, Norma Tarango and myself weaving a raft of subject matter that looks at emergent humanity within the cultural creative movement - that includes the holistic, green, social justice, metaphysical, potentials, spirituality, peace movement and more.Covering Gaia, sacred connection, planetary restoration, indigenous understanding, humanity, quantum consciousness, conscious parenting, personal responsibility and community empowerment.The urgency being - we need to do this daily by thinking it, talking to our family, engaging our neighbours and connecting with our community.
The new evolution is that each human being, individually is an entity unto themselves – and now science is recognizing some thing called a super organism - where each human is a cell in the body of a much larger organism called Humanity – and now humanity is set to evolve to a different level and this is in regard to relationship and family and each other - to unity and community.
From the local to the global - it is Conscious Evolution and an Awakening Earth!
