The luxury of having world class nature around the corner

The luxury of having world class nature around the corner
I feel so blessed to live in a very special part of the world and today I had a good reminder of this as I spent part of the day on the beach and in the bush.

I live in Torquay which is on the Surfcoast in Victoria - about 95 km south of Melbourne. I drove towards Lorne today on the Great Ocean Road and stopped a little past Lorne near the St George River. 

I found a walking track which to my surprise I had not explored before. It was so beautiful! 
I just felt instantly connected and relaxed. The further in on the path I was, the further away I found myself from the outside world and the stress and worries melted away. 

The nature and the trees speak to me. We are dependent on each other. The love is there, so deep. It makes we ask myself "who am I", "what role do I play in this todays world" and then the overwhelming feeling of peace washes over me. A humble feeling of "just be", "just be you".

I feel so much love for this paradise we live in and this place we put under so much pressure. Mother Earth sure is showing us that things gotta change at the moment. I feel that the humans are part of this gigantic flora which are made of "good" and "bad" bacteria. At the moment there is too much of the "bad" and Mother Earth is feeling it and showing us.

I had the urge of just embracing this tree and feel the love and connection. It's an amazing feeling! I believe it can restore our health and reduce inflammation - as much as walking barefoot on the earth can.

Some of the trees are hollow, but it does not mean there is life. 

Amazing mushrooms and flower.

I started feeling more and more alive.

After visiting that amazing bush I walked towards the beach which was just a km away.

The most stunning beach! On the highest point of the busy area is Teddy's Look out. 

The water was refreshingly cold as it is down here on the Surfcoast, but the water is probably the clearest you find in the world. The colour is my favourite; blue, aqua and white.

This is definitely one of my favourite spots on the Surfcoast.

My heart is filled again with gratitude and love.

Remember to connect with nature. Remember to take care of Mother Earth. 

Much Love, Karin xx

I am in love with the new Lustre Diffuser

I am in love with the new Lustre Diffuser

I am over the moon with the wonderful product I received from Young Living this month. And the best thing was I got it for free. This gift certainly exceeded my expectations. It was their new Lustre Artisan Glass diffuser. Check out the amazing box it came in. It has my favourite pink roses on it and it came with 2 bottles of essential oil as well - Citrus Fresh and Peppermint!! It was also much bigger than I thought it was. 💕💕💕

I know have it in my office/treatment/coaching room and it looks so good. I must admit, I now have 4 diffusers in my office but I am only using 1 or two at the same time. I just love the look of them and the incredible mood they set with the magic oils I put in them. 

Here's my favourite diffuser recipes at the moment:

Happy Days
  • 3 drops of Grapefruit Young Living Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Orange Young Living Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Peppermint Young Living Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Lavender Young Living Essential oils
  • 3 drops of Rosemary Young Living Essential Oils
  • 2 drops of Sage Young Living Essential Oils
  • 2 drops of Lemon Young Living Essential Oils
  • 2 drops of Lime Young Living Essential Oils
Ground Yourself
  • 3 drops of Grounding Essential Oil blend from Young Living
  • 2 drops of Orange Young Living Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Sage Young Living Essential Oils
Evening Romance
  • 3 drops of Ylang Ylang Young Living Essential Oils
  • 3 drops of Northern Lights Black Spruce Young Living Essential oil
  • 3 drops of Lavender Young Living Essential Oils
  • 1 drops of Cypress Young Living Essential Oil
My diffuser Tips for you is to start with a few drops and then work your way up. You may notice you can't smell the oils after 15 - 30 minutes. This is normal, but you can keep diffusing! You are still getting the benefits. 
Don't be afraid to blend oils and try different recipe!

What do you dream about?

What do you dream about?
Do you have dreams of what you want to accomplish in life? Is there anything stopping you from going for them? Perhaps work, family, financial pressures, and the hectic pace of our daily lives gets in the way? Perhaps you deep down don't believe you deserve or can't ever make your dreams come true.

When we are kids we dream big. I can remember dreaming about becoming an astronaut when I was a kid. Some days I wanted to become a dentist 😁😂 At some point I was going to be a super star - a performer.

When we then grow up, we sometimes forget how it is to dream big. Sometimes we forget to passionately pursue something we really want to do.

Do you ever wish you had a friend or a mentor who thinks like you and who can inspire you to achieve big goals?

If you need someone who can guide you to the people, strategies and resources you’re looking for… then
The Oola Coaching Program is for you!

I am a Certified Oola Life Coach, and when you work with me privately weekly as your private advisor, I will help you turn your dreams into achievable goals – then I support you in pursuing those goals with enthusiasm.

Together with me, you’ll focus on ways to reach your career ambitions, personal goals and lifestyle objectives. 
I  will share ideas, unlock new paths, and celebrate your wins. But most importantly, I will hold you accountable for making progress in every area of your life.

My Values & Beliefs
You are worth it!
You deserve to live the life you dream about. Regardless of your past and regardless of what other people have ever told you - You are so worth it! I am here to empower you to walk confidently in your worth, and the freedom that comes from loving yourself.
You were created for greatness & are here to fulfill your soul purpose
There is no one like you. You are perfect the way you are, and you are loved the way you are. You were sent here to find your greatness and to become brave enough to follow the path towards a soul filled purpose.
Self-awareness, self-love and honesty towards self are the secret keys
Once you learn to identify why you are doing the things you do (behaviours), why you do the things you do (actions) and you start to take full responsibility for it – you become and empowered being and can achieve anything you want. If you love yourself enough to be honest towards yourself through self-awareness, life will never be the same again.
You can find that “warrior” within and achieve your dreams
I have been at rock bottom and can tell you with confidence and love that you are fully able to change, to grow and to transform. You can transform your life; transform your wellness and you can live the life of your dreams!
What you currently lack is a system and a plan and a “warrior” (me) beside you to unlock that greatness inside of you and accelerate your life!

My tasks as a Coach is to keep inspiring you to keep going.

So what is Oola Life Coaching? What does Oola stand for?
Oola is short for Ooh-la-la: it’s what life feels like when you’re happy, growing, and looking forward to what the world has in store for you. It’s the feeling you get when you’ve landed that better job, grown a bigger business, or watched your kids succeed at something they’re passionate about.
It’s what you tell yourself when you’ve bought that dream house, saved your first $10,000, or paid off the last of your debts. It’s the confidence you feel being fit and date-night ready for the first time in years—or the sense of wonder and enchantment you feel on your first trip to your favourite dream destination.
Whatever rocks it for you, Oola means living life firing on all cylinders—joyful, wholehearted, and ready to take advantage whenever good times and opportunity appear.

Oola is also the proven formula for getting back on track, and finding balance in our unbalanced world.
More than 20 years ago, two holistic physicians—Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl—created Oola to help people establish new habits, practice new ways of living, and take those daily actions that are key to bringing life into balance, then keeping it that way on an ongoing basis. Today, “The OolaGuys” are international bestselling authors, social media influencers, personal growth experts, and founders of Oola Coaching with countless successful clients around the world.
Since the first copy of their blockbuster book, Oola, rolled off the presses years ago, the Oola lifestyle has become a phenomenon with over a million readers seeking the balanced OolaLife. In cities across America, Dr. Dave and Dr. Troy arrive in their 1970 VW Surf Bus—inviting fans to write their biggest dreams on multicolored stickers, then slap the colorful circles on the sides of the OolaBus. Twenty-five layers of stickers later, their city tours are major events, their OolaPalooza live training routinely sells out, and more than a million fans on social media have brought Oola to every major city in the world.
Countless success stories of real people around the globe confirm that the simple, practical, easy-to-implement Oola formula works to help people get healthy, eliminate debt, build wealth, move into their dream career, have more fun, create a better circle of friends, resolve lifelong family conflict, find their ultimate life purpose . . . and so much more.
Now, through a unique alliance of professionally trained Oola coaches (yes, that is me)—and weekly delivery of dynamic lessons from Dr. Dave and Dr. Troy—you, too, can experience what others are already living: the OolaLife.
If you took inventory of your life today, you’d discover that every circumstance, challenge, opportunity and achievement you experience fits into 7 major categories:
The 7 F's of Oola:
FITNESS: Everything health and wellness in your life. Primarily referring to how you use your body and what you put in your body.
FINANCE: All things personal finance.
FAMILY: Single, committed, married, divorced, children, step-children, extended family… all belong here.
FIELD: Your career and your profession. Stay-at-home parents and students, this includes you.
FAITH: Based on gratitude, humility, and an understanding of our greater purpose in the world.
FRIENDS: Everything social. Includes two categories: friends and acquaintances
FUN: Explores your personal passions in life.
We call these “The 7 F’s of Oola,” and focusing on improving in each of these areas will get you to the OolaLife faster than almost any other way. 
Oola is not about achieving an important goal in a single area. It’s not just about making more money or losing weight or meeting your soulmate. It’s also about tackling the tough stuff, cleaning up relationships, setting boundaries, and eliminating stress—all while dreaming big dreams again and putting together a plan to get the complete life you want . . . the OolaLife.
Now, through the unique Oola Coaching Program, Dr. Dave and Dr. Troy will help you stay focused on The 7 F’s, while you work personally—week after week—with a Certified Oola Life Coach (me) who will keep you accountable to creating lasting change.
Are you ready to get your OolaLife?
The Oola Coaching Program is the most effective—and yet the simplest—life-changing program available today. To create this ground-breaking experience, The OolaGuys have drawn from more than 30 years of experience in discovering, implementing, and verifying what makes people’s lives balanced, growing and happy.
Along with that knowledge, they’ve added their own personal experience as strategic advisors to many of the most successful people alive today. It’s this wisdom and experience that enlightens the comprehensive materials, training and exercises you’ll receive.
In fact, together with your Coach, Dr. Dave and Dr. Troy will join you on your journey, delivering learning tools and videos to your email inbox each week. In between these video lessons, your Coach will work with you via private one-on-one sessions (by phone or online) to create a plan for tackling what YOU need to work on. Me as your Coach will also keep you accountable to focusing on goals (and doing “the tough stuff”) as you bring your life into balance.
Your Oola Coaching Program starts with a Confidential Coaching Questionnaire, designed to familiarize your private coach with your greatest opportunities and challenges—before the two of you ever meet by phone or online. Imagine being guided by someone who understands your situation thoroughly from the very first day of your Program. But don’t worry: there’s no “big reveal” or scary questions in there. Just a thoughtful look at your current life circumstances.
Then, every week you’ll receive a video-learning module via email so you can begin applying what you learn and be ready to check in with your personal Oola Coach. Each video lesson arrives with a printable PDF workbook to teach you more and give you suggested action steps for the week.
In-between the weekly modules, I will schedule 30-minute private coaching sessions to help you get results from the strategies you’ll be learning. Typically scheduled on the same day and time, you can always book these sessions to fit around your work life, home life, travel plans and other activities. During each coaching session, you’ll work on establishing new and important habits and behaviors to reinforce your success.  Not only that, but you’ll also work with myself as your Coach to plan those tasks needed to move forward on your goals. Plus, I will guide you, keep you on track, and help you get “unstuck” as you’re making important changes in your life.
I can as your Oola Coach help you:
  • Develop a plan to “reinvent” yourself, looking at the most important categories in your life—from your finances to your health to your career and more.
  • Shift your focus from “busy-ness” to taking action.
  • Build a support team of smart, reliable people who can advise and help you as you grow.
  • Set goals that can be broken down into achievable steps, including setting one big, audacious goal that will uplevel and amplify the way you live, who you know, what you do with your day, and how you pursue your life purpose.
It’s a well known fact that, of all the things successful people do to accelerate their path to success, working with me as your professional coach is at the top of the list. In fact, private coaching is so impactful that major companies are now assigning personal coaches to high-profile executives and up-and-coming “stars” they’ve identified for future leadership positions. But coaching is not just for business people today. Professional athletes, college students, retiring Baby Boomers, stay-at-home moms starting a side hustle—plus millions more people from all walks of life—are working with coaches like myself to create the life they want.
I will help you clarify your vision and goals, talk you through your fears, confront your unconscious behaviors and old patterns, expect you to do your best, help you live by your values, show you how to earn more while working less, and keep you focused on what will bring about the change you want. 
I will also help you:
  • Determine specific action steps to help you achieve your goals
  • Help you sort through opportunities that arise from your forward momentum
  • Keep you focused on your top priorities while fitting in daily tasks
  • Achieve balance in your life while still accomplishing your lifestyle or career goals

Over 10 intensive weeks (or 3 weeks if you choose the Oola Quick-Start Program), you could begin to work on achieving outcomes like these:
  • Eliminate the crushing weight of debt
  • Change careers and begin living your right livelihood
  • Resolve toxic family situations
  • Uplevel your circle of friends and enjoy quality time
  • Add fun to your life with “bucket list” adventures
  • Retire early and pursue an “encore” vocation you love
  • Get healthy, lose excess weight & focus on self-care
  • Start a charity or help causes you believe in
  • Create the income to stay at home with your kids
  • Grow spiritually and discover your faith walk again
All it takes to create amazing outcomes like these are two things: 
(1) the desire for change, and 
(2) the support of a professional coach like myself who is dedicated to helping you make it happen. 
I will be there—week after week—to keep you moving forward toward your goals, yet surprisingly, the cost of working with them throughout the Oola Coaching Program is less than you might imagine.
For less than a weekend getaway or a shopping spree. you could be working privately with me as own personal Coach during the 10-week Oola Coaching Program. (The 3-week Oola Quick-Start Program costs even less.)
To get started on your journey to the OolaLife, click on the coaching program below that suits you best. While the 3-Week Quick-Start Program will help with planning and making a start, most people choose the 10-week program to work on bigger life changes they know can only happen over time. Plus, importantly, the 10-week program steps you through a “deep dive” of all 7 F’s of Oola, helping you make changes in every area of life.
Through the Oola Coaching Program, you’ll discover that successful people have a bias for action. Instead of getting stuck in analysis and research, they move forward. They take action. And, in the process of being in action, almost like magic, new opportunities appear to help them move forward even faster—opportunities they never would have known about if they’d stayed on the sidelines.
Getting to your OolaLife is no different. In fact, one of the most important skills you’ll learn in the Oola Coaching Program is taking small steps every day that are the milestones toward achieving big goals.
Whether you want to improve your career, build a business, move across country, start a charity, or simply achieve a more tranquil and balanced lifestyle, the Oola Coaching Program will help you make plans—then take action—over the next 10 weeks. Whether your goals are to “double my income” or “build schools in Africa” or “meet my soulmate” – you’ll define what’s included in your perfect life and create a complete picture so that you and your Oola Coach can go to work creating it.
But you have to take action FIRST and register for the Oola Coaching Program that suits you best.
What’s the extraordinary thing you’re supposed to do in life? 
Get started with Oola Coaching and see what happens.
  • Transform your health, fitness, mental well-being and energy levels so you have the stamina and clarity to achieve your biggest goals.

End of Aspire Wellbeing Centre/Shop in Torquay - New Beginnings

It was 4 years ago I started Torquay's first Body, Mind and Spirit Wellbeing Centre/Shop in Torquay - Aspire Wellbeing.
It's been an amazing journey! 

I'd like to firstly give a big thanks to you who have followed and supported me during these years. 

Another empty shop in Torquay as Aspire Wellbeing's Soul lives on - in different shape and form.

Here is the new beautiful Coaching & Treatments room and film studio 
for all the upcoming classes, courses and programs.

It has been a fun journey but also a "full-on" one. Huge learnings, challenges and growth, loads of connections with wonderful people and a massive amount of treatments, workshops, classes, courses and retreats. I could possible not keep count on all the things that has taken place there. During this time I have also furthered my own skills with various courses and personal development.

Aspire Wellbeing in Torquay was a dream of mine and was on my vision board years earlier. It was a  project that was on my "bucket list" and it's now been ticked off.

The last few months have been month's of Transformation, adaption and growth. It's very much been a personal growth journey - an inwards journey. My soul told me right from the start of this "situation" we are in, that it was time to go inwards. I actually made a video of this back in March. But it was month's  before March I knew something was coming - just did not know what it was. Well, now we know...

I have realised that Freedom is my highest value and has always been. I have always been a critical thinker, an action taker and a light warrior. I sure have had to utilise those skills now and I have had to "free" myself from many things, not just the Aspire Wellbeing as it's been the last 4 years.

My commitment to myself is to live a balanced life and a life with passion - where I get to have a soulful purpose. I have realised that it's time for change, for growth, for expansion and it's time to serve in a bigger and better way. 

I purchased this Wolkswagen Van a little while ago. I have always wanted one. Now it's mine...until I manifest the larger one. One that I can fit all my essential oils, crystals and the people I love in it. 😁😂👍
This van is now in my office and represents Balance and Freedom to me. It's the van that will take me to my dream places and get me to experience life the way I choose to.

I'm ready to hop in the driver's seat. Are you ready to come with me? Are you ready to create balance in all the 7 key areas of your life so you can have an aspiring OOLA life as well...

Let the journey new and better, transformational ways.

Love and Light,

Karin xx

Benefits from drinking water

Benefits from drinking water

Did you know that adult humans are around 60- 75 percent water and our blood is about 90 percent water? And did you know that around 70 percent of the planet’s surface is covered by water? Amazing!

Water is essential for our bodies to function properly. Water carries nutrients to all cells in our body and oxygen to our brain. Water allows the body to absorb and assimilate minerals, vitamins, amino acids, glucose and other substances. Water flushes out toxins and waste. Water helps to regulate body temperature.
Water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions. When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.

Water helps lubricates the joints. Cartilage, found in joints and the disks of the spine, contains around 80 percent water. Long-term dehydration can reduce the joints’ shock-absorbing ability, leading to joint pain.
Water forms saliva and mucus. Saliva helps us digest our food and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. This prevents friction and damage. Drinking water also keeps the mouth clean. Water delivers oxygen throughout the body. Water cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues.

Water regulates body temperature. Water that is stored in the middle layers of the skin comes to the skin’s surface as sweat when the body heats up. As it evaporates, it cools the body. 
Did you know that dehydration can affect brain structure and function. It is also involved in the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. Prolonged dehydration can lead to problems with thinking and reasoning.

The bowel needs water to work properly. Dehydration can lead to digestive problems, constipation, and an overly acidic stomach. This increases the risk of heartburn and stomach ulcers. Water flushes body waste.
Water helps maintain blood pressure. A lack of water can cause blood to become thicker, increasing blood pressure.
 Our airways need water. When dehydrated, airways are restricted by the body in an effort to minimize water loss. This can make asthma and allergies worse.

Water boosts performance during exercise and water may also help with weight loss.
Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day.

I love drinking water and especially Alkaline water - this is has a pH level of over 7.4 to match my body's natural alkalinity. I bought a Zazen water filter a couple of years back and have found this amazing. This water can help transform your wellness. My clients also get to enjoy this wonderful water.

I am happy to share some interesting information on these filters - Just CLICK HERE
