April 2015 – Manifesting Category

Welcome to the April 2015 issue of Parvati Magazine! “We create our reality” is a popular phrase in today’s New Age thinking. The implication that “we” are the doers may bolster our sense of being powerfully in charge.

I am all for the power of choice. But the choice we have I feel is different, and far more powerful than this. This kind of willfulness will ultimately create suffering for those who attempt to live by it. The idea that we control circumstances is the other side of the coin of feeling like life’s victim. In both, we perceiveRead More
This month, Parvati Magazine interviewed Kerry Rowett, an energy kinesiologist in Australia who works with entrepreneurs. Parvati Magazine: What is Kinesiology? Kerry Rowett: Kinesiology is a form of natural therapy. Your Kinesiologist uses muscle testing (on you when the session is in person, or on themselves if the session is via distance) to tap into your body, subconscious mind and higher self to identify and clear imbalances on various levels including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Kinesiology can be particularly powerful at helping you identify and understand the root causesRead More

Parvati Magazine: What inspired you to start teaching and coaching? Caroline Jordan: Fitness has always been a part of my life. My mother is a family practice nurse, who taught group fitness for fun throughout my childhood. Movement is rooted in my mind, body, and spirit.

I recently went to see Disney’s new live-actor movie Cinderella starring Lily James and Richard Madden. The costumes are beautiful and the sets sublime. The actors soon had me immersed in the story and I found myself identifying with the lovely Cinderella. I started wondering why I love this story so much!

When we are born we have this wide-eyed enjoymentRead More

The United Kingdom accounts for 0.16% of global land mass, but when it comes to water, it is definitely punching above its weight. It just announced the largest single marine protected area in the world, increasing the total number of fully protected marine areas in the world by a quarter. 30% of the waters in which the UK has jurisdiction are now protected. This news arrives in the wake of a concerted push in February by celebrities, scientists and environmental leaders calling on the UK government to protect the watersRead More

Since the body does not know how to get rid of many of the unnatural toxins we ingest daily, such as chemicals, preservatives and additives, many toxic substances end up stored in the liver. Once overloaded, the liver begins to have trouble digesting and eliminating wastes from the body. This can then lead to a buildup of toxins in other organs and tissues. Illness can manifest as a result. Diet and exercise are essential for a healthyRead More
