Weekly musings from Hoi by the Sea / January Week 1


Imagine your own version of a perfect future. See yourself in that future, feel and sense all your desires fulfilled.

Now bring that memory into the present and let it influence your behaviour from now on.

Shed the burden of the past and let the future vision guide you.

That is living backward in time.

Let the future create the present. Live the highest ideal now.


Waking up in the morning, before thinking sets in, you are just yourself, in a state of awareness.

You are NOT what you are thinking. Your thoughts don’t belong to you, they belong to the many roles you play.

Pay attention to the silent observer behind your senses.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
