Berry Springs

The photo that I've used as my profile pic on this blog is taken at Berry Springs, which is 40 minutes drive from Darwin in the Northern Territory

I have tried to find further information about the history and significance of the site, but so far have only seen the "european" version about it being a camp for soldiers during the war

Never-the-less it is a feel-good place and we all know about the healing properties of springs all over the world.

Berry Springs isn't a really hot spring which I had expected, but definitely not cold water either - just right : )

Theres not that many swimming places around Darwin that are safe from crocs, and Berry Springs has croc traps so, aside from being a beautiful oasis hangout, it usually comes with peace of mind.

Recently it was closed down due to bacteria and while visiting, it had crossed my mind to jump the fence and have a swim anyway.... I'm relieved that I didn't because a few days later a huge croc was found in a trap there!

  1. Remember the movie Avatar?

    Where all those blue people were connected by an

    Well, that is not just a fantasy.

    It turns out that kind of “energy” is real.

    Deepak Chopra wrote about a study, where scientists
    saw monkeys dipping potatoes in saltwater before
    eating it.

    Then they saw the rest of the tribe doing it.

    Pretty logical so far right?

    But get this: Monkeys in different parts of the WORLD
    started dipping potatoes in salt water.

    There was no way they could have communicated
    with each other.

    The only explanation was that they communicated
    through an invisible, “intelligent energy.”

    The Japanese call this energy “Ki”.

    It stands for “Life Force”

    In fact, a man named Mikao Usui developed a
    SYSTEM of healing called Reiki.

    And this system of healing uses this intelligent energy
    to heal people.

    It is one of the most ancient, profound and
    POWERFUL healing arts in the world.

    Reiki masters can HEAL just by touching someone
    with their hands.

    They can also heal people REMOTELY using their

    It’s amazing.

    It USED to take YEARS and THOUSANDS of dollars
    to become a Reiki master.

    But this guy named Owen Coleman discovered how
    to attain these healing powers rapidly.

    Even in as little as 48 hours.

    According to him he already had this power, but
    don’t realize it. And that’s we don’t have to spend too
    much time learning it.

    We just need to recognize it and release it.

    Alright, till next time.

    P.S. - Owen is offering a special training that
    won't be around forever.

    He's planning on releasing his training methods on
    a large scale.

    But for now, it is invitation only.

    So, if I were you, I'd take advantage of that as well.

    Look forward to hearing from you!
