I travelled to Indonesia with my first husband, and established a spiritual centre, where I offered private sessions and classes, and had teachers presenting on yoga, meditation and healing. During that time I wrote my first book, Dreams: Signs of Things to Come (co-authored with Quentin Watts).
On returning to Australia in late 1994, my spiritual path continued to call me. By this stage I was well known for my work as a clairvoyant and psychic, and was offering private sessions, psychic development courses and spirit guide art to clients around Australia. Out of the wisdom I was gaining through my sessions and classes, I wrote my second book, Earth Song, then went on to create four guided meditation CDs. I became a columnist for Nature & Health magazine, had my own radio show, and appeared as a special guest on various other radio programs.
I have always been on the lookout for the best products to help myself and my clients to transform. In 1998, I was at a women’s networking meeting, and a woman was offering free cassettes on essential oils. On it, Gary Young (the founder of Young Living) was talking about the power of therapeutic-grade essential oils. I still remember how inspired I was by his message. I’d had no idea essential oils could do so much, or that there was so much “hard science” around their many benefits. Naturally, I wanted to try them.
And this is where a magic door opened in my life. I’d used many top brands of essential oil in the past, but I’d never experienced anything like the Young Living oils. From the very first time I used them, I was blown away by their potency, their effectiveness and their transformative power. They were light years ahead of other brands of essential oil, and I soon realised I’d found the missing link in my life.
