Aloha, my beautiful friend,
Thank you! Your email is beautiful. You are so special, words can’t even describe the how’s or whys but just that you are here with such purpose…and your sharing on so many levels in so many dimensions is wonderful.
I have been to Whittlesea (thanks for text and email you sent out to the ohana) a few times now, and have been working with the group that your chiro knew about. It has been wonderful. I have been at the CFA staging Arena, and have been working different shifts massaging the emergency crew, ie SES, CFA and Army guys. What an amazing and inspiring world that is. These people have given up their time, their comforts like beds and homes and are doing such an amazing job in clearing and cleaning the fire affected areas.. So many stories, I have been fortunate enough to work on many of the guys (back massages with the lomi intent and style) and it has been such a special environment. The minute you hop into the tent – the energy comes alive…all the therapist are so happy to be there and helping out…it is truly an amazing experience.
Next to our tent there is the Wild life Rescue team….they have also been working around the clock, helping the wildlife, they sleep the night there and watch, and assist the animals in their care or those brought in by the emergency crews. Many are burnt, Others are homeless and tiered..that has been heartbreaking, ….so I have been thinking of you, and want to send you aloha and blessing, for you and your ways makes the journey clearer and easier for these beautiful souls .
So I too am looking forward to hugging you next Sunday…What a special day that will be!

Aloha nani wahine,
Even the fist line of your email has made me tear up (again!!)
I guess part of the ‘how am I’ can best be answered by this copy and paste from an email I sent to an ‘ohana in Hawaii today – I’m looking forward to a long walk and afternoon at the beach today. It’s been a full on three weeks of teaching and clients ( some of whom have been involved in the fires here), and particularly this week. The healing needed here with the fires on all levels has been intense and even for the most skilled shaman, pretty full on.
Helping both human and animal souls walk the rainbow in my nocturnal hours also (along with the help of my trusty ilio Murphy!) , along with the ‘physical’ healings has certainly meant a pi kai cleanse at the ocean today is much needed. So any extra ‘waves’ you can send my way will be received with much aloha
Your beautiful energy is radiating to all those in need, even simply by you thinking of them. Ask for guidance from ‘above’ to lead you to the right people regarding how you can help. When you make the connections let me know and I can email what’s happening when something is organised to the ‘ohana for you.
Even if full lomi isn’t appropriate, even a back massage would be very much valued. Go with your guidance and be flexible with whatever will work and is appropriate in the situation.
I was going to call Adeline, my chiro anyway tomorrow to make an appt for me and Murph and I know she was one of the chiro’s who went up on Friday, so I can ask her.
Remember that the energies will be incredibly intense there, so whoever goes will need to be energetically prepared. Also remember all you can do is be there, listen, give hugs and massage. Their pain and grief is very intense and we cannot have any words to even begin to ease that. Just allow aloha to shine from your soul, heart and eyes and they will ‘get it’.
So, let me know what unfolds.
Have penciled you in for 01 march and I for 1 will be looking forward to a big aloha hug from you
Aloha hugs to you, Tracey ( oh, and aloha licks from Murph)

Aloha, my beautiful friend
How are you? Hoping that all is well. You probably have had lots of emails within the ohana expressing sadness and shock with all the devastation of the fires. I have wondered what could we do to help…what would the shamans do…..??? I feel so overwhelmed with sadness and the reality that this is so HUGE…but still wonder collectively what can we do to change this? ( I am hoping my wonderful teacher (you) has some advise)
Secondly i am trying to work out how some of us could get together and give lomi and the aloha spirit to those affected. I not sure how yet, or where, but I visualise being set up with a couple of tables and providing free massages. I contacted our local CFA, and they weren’t quite sure how to go about it. I have also tried calling the Whittlesea rec centre for advise…as yet no response….I have contacted another massage therapist who is also trying to do the same and mentioned I was happy to help coordinate it. However I am wondering if you are already aware of this happening ( I know the chiropractic association has set one up) or do you have any suggestions on how we can go about it?
I have been thinking of you a lot in the last couple of weeks, so I hope you are well!?? Tania and I worked together on the weekend and did 2 doubles, and it felt so amazing, truly a beautiful gift to give. I am so grateful to you for sharing your gift, your love and your time. I feel really blessed to have you part of my life and for introducing Joey and Tania to.
If there is still room available I would like to tentatively book the advanced training day on the 1st March. I will confirm early next week.
May you keep safe,
