Did you know that you are holding beliefs that are
holding you back from having a better life? Learn how
to replace these with beliefs that empower you. Your
life will never be the same!
WHERE DO LIMITING BELIEFS COME FROM?
From the moment of your first breath, you are
interacting with your environment and learning
from your surroundings. In the early years, most
of what you learn will have been taught to you
from your parents and absorbed from the
people you interacted with most, as well as from
your own learning experiences. It’s in these initial
years that form most of our conditioning, or the
patterns of our thought. We know that what we
take in helps to shape us, and enables us to
learn, develop and grow, but what if some of
this information isn’t true? Or perhaps what we
learned has served its purposes to us as a child,
but now does not help us to move forward as an
The sources of our limiting beliefs come from
several places, can occur consciously or subconsciously,
1. Your Family. Many of us learn most of our
knowledge and beliefs from family members.
This is usually done in the best of intentions and
your parents want to teach you about life. But
everyone’s perceptions on life and experiences
are different, and so they will teach you
according to their own belief systems. Often,
this is done out of love and care, but unintentionally
it may hinder you from believing you can achieve
An example may be an over-critical and scolding
parent who constantly tells you that you are not
good enough. Although this may not be intended
to harm you, it could lead to you believing this,
resulting in low self-esteem issues in later life. The
parent may not necessarily be aware that they
could be causing a problem as they, too, may
have had a similar upbringing and are only
teaching you based on what they have
2. Your Friends. Like family, your friends are also
individuals who perceive and interpret life from their
own experiences and personalities. But also, there
may even be the added factor of competitiveness
or jealousy where things can be said for their
purposes, more than they are a benefit to yours.
“Beliefs have the power to create
and the power to destroy.
Human beings have the awesome ability
to take any experiences for their lives

love and guidance to provide us with the very
best outcomes. But sometimes they, too, are full
of their own limiting beliefs that end up being
passed onto us.
The only thing limiting us in life
is our belief that there are limits.
4. Our own interpretation of events. Many times,
it’s the way we interpret what is said to us that is
what really holds us back. Our emotions can get
in the way of clear communication and
accurate understanding of what is actually
being said. If you are already lacking
confidence and are feeling upset, a simple
comment that isn’t loaded with negative intent
may be perceived to you as harsh criticism.
5. Everything else – internet, media, movies,
books and more.
Everything that we watch and read is
information that gets loaded into our brains.
Although we may not think that something is
relevant, we are constantly using all of this data
to shape our thoughts and opinions about the
It’s important to look at the areas in your life
where you are less than satisfied, and this is
where you will find that there is probably a
limiting belief that’s preventing you from
moving forward. If you’re struggling with
romance, perhaps you were hurt in the past
and don’t believe yourself to be worthy of
being in a happy and fulfilling relationship. Or if
you struggle with finances, it may be that you
hold the belief that if you become wealthy,
you’ll lose your real friends. However silly as it
may sound, these are the sources of what can
hold us back in life. And when you learn to let
go of these limiting beliefs, you’ll find that you’ll
begin to open up new possibilities into your life
that you’ve only ever dreamed were possible.

POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS – DO THEY WORK?
Think about the child who is constantly scolded
and told that they are useless. The child will start
to believe these words are true and may start to
say things like “I’m never good enough” or “Why
can’t I do anything right?”. Eventually this will
lead them to adopting behaviours that are
consistent to this belief, and they may not be
motivated to try hard in anything they do, as they
We’ve all heard of positive affirmations but what
are they all about? It may seem a bit bizarre
that just telling yourself something repeatedly
can change things, but there is a science
behind this madness of simplicity.
Positive affirmations can be used to help us with
motivation, self-esteem, make positive changes
to thinking patterns, or even to our lives. If you
get caught with negative clutter and
sabotaging self-talk, these simple and easy
statements can help you to re-program your
negative mindset to one that will serve you in a
more positive way.
Scientific studies have even shown the benefits
to the brain by positive self-affirming regularly.
There is MRI evidence that suggests the increase
of activity in certain neural pathways,
specifically the prefrontal cortex, when we
practice positive affirmations. There have been
further studies that have shown improvements in
reducing stress, increasing healthy living and
activity, and has even been linked to show
improved academic achievement.
already know they are doomed to failure.
When you think about it, everything starts with a
thought. When you think something, you will tend
to use words to communicate your thoughts, and
then your actions will follow to demonstrate this
belief. So, the logical thing to do is to change
your thoughts, which we all know is not a simple
thing to do – especially if you’ve had a lifetime of
experiences that further reinforce your thinking
and behaviours. So why not start with your words,
and with repetition you can start to fill your mind
with positive thoughts that will lead to more
positive words and actions. Sounds too simple to
be true, right? Why not try this for yourself!

Bhakti [b-Huhk-tee] - Yoga cultivates the expression and love of the Divine through devotional rituals.

YOGA FOR STRESS RELIEF
Read Christina’s journey into yoga and how this helped her to
significantly reduce her levels of stress and anxiety. She’s now trained in
children’s yoga, chair yoga and Yin yoga to help others to experience
the benefits for better health and happiness.
Why did you start doing yoga?
I started my yoga journey just over six years ago
when I was experiencing anxiety. At that time, I
noticed a difference in my posture as a result of
not breathing correctly. This contributed to the
hunching of my shoulders forward and my
breathing became very shallow due to the
anxiety I was experiencing. It was a vicious cycle
until I decided to motivate myself and attend my
first ever yoga class.
What benefits did you notice?
I started mainly doing yoga as a form of exercise
but noticed how the classes incorporated lots of
to do my study with Calm for Kids in London. This
way I could put my yoga and teaching training
into what I love to do most. I work with small
groups of children under eleven years old. My
classes incorporate stories which include simple
yoga postures. As well as the physical benefits,
my teaching involves mindfulness and breath
work. This helps children to have better focus,
and to be aware of their breath so that they can
deal with their emotions more efficiently. Parents
have told me that their children are less stressed
afterwards. Most importantly the classes are fun
mental focus and the postures were done whilst
concentrating on the breath. After about three
months I found my anxiety was lessening and I
noticed how by practicing the correct breathing
techniques, I was straightening up my shoulders
and I even managed to halve the dosage of my
asthma inhaler. My asthma was late onset and
came on mainly due to the stress I was
experiencing. By practicing yoga, I found that I
could manage my stress more efficiently.
How did you start teaching yoga?
Two and a half years ago I wanted to teach
again. I wanted to work with children and
incorporate yoga into schools, and so I decided
9 • AWAKEN YOUR SOUL TO CONSCIOUS LIVING www.purenergylife.com
PŪR ENERGY LIFE
What type(s) of yoga do you teach?
I started to teach Yin yoga after I became
interested in how it works with the Chinese
meridian lines within the body. In Yin, movements
are slow and are held between 3 and 5 minutes
and we use props to help us into and stay in poses.
Yin yoga not only incorporates relaxation
techniques; it also enables the body to go into the
posture more and works deep into the facia (this
is the connective tissue that wraps around every
organ and muscle of the body). In Yin we work
deeper, working together with the five elements.
A Yin practice can also be tailor made for you to
deal with any health issues you may be having.
I have also recently started to teach chair yoga,
and I wanted to do this so that yoga could be
assessable for all. Chair yoga is suitable for all
abilities and I can design a lesson plan tailored to
your needs, taking into consideration of any
health issues or limitations you may have. It can be
done staying seated or you can sit as well as stand
and use the chair for support whilst practicing your
postures. Chair yoga is a very important class for
the elderly, people convalescing from illness or
injury and is also beneficial for people who want
a less strenuous practice.
Christina’s yoga classes are available in the Surrey
& Berkshire areas, and also online via Zoom.

martial arts, such as Aikido and
Kobujitso, along with many other
forms of karate including Goju Ryu.
I have travelled to many parts of
the world studying martial arts with
some of my time spent in Japan

numerous national tournaments in
kata and kumite, I subsequently
opened a Dojo on Bondi Beach

awarded the title of Sensei (teacher) and the grade of 5 th dan from
Sumi Sensei in Japan.

We all have the potential to lead a long, healthy, energetic life full of
vitality: 70% of your health is in your own hands - genetics only
contributes to 30%.
There are 5 key areas in our lives where we can make some small
changes, and with the right knowledge, this will have a huge impact
on our health and vitality by helping us to age slower and stay
energetic for longer.
The centre of our digestive system is our gut and its diverse microbiome (gut bacteria). 70% of your
immune system is in your gut and around 90% of your serotonin (happiness chemical) is produced in your
gut. This is why the food we eat has a direct impact on our mood. Microbiome cells outnumber human
cells by about 10 to 1 and microbiome DNA outnumbers our human DNA 100 to 1. What does this mean
for us? If you want good health, you must have good gut health! Most brain dysfunction conditions like
anxiety, depression, brain fog, Alzheimer’s and many more are caused by inflammation in the brain. This
means that if we have a leaky, inflamed gut, we have a leaky, inflamed brain.
How do we prevent inflammation in the gut and brain? We rebuild a healthy gut. We can do this by
avoiding inflammation-causing foods like sugar, refined flour, dairy and gluten. We must also avoid things
that kill our good bacteria like antibiotics. Medical anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen, pesticides and
herbicides are used in the production of non-organic crops. Try and buy organic whenever you can.
Great health is not
the absence of disease.
Sometimes you don’t have anything wrong
with you diagnosed by a professional,
but you just don’t feel great and
are lacking energy and vitality.
With modern medicine, doctors are very
good at diagnosing and treating conditions,
but very little thought goes into
why we have the problems and what we
can do to prevent them in the first place.
If we had more knowledge on
good nutrition and lifestyle habits,
we could prevent having to go
to the doctor in the first place.
By taking care of these FIVE areas in my life, I
am giving myself the best chance to live a
healthy, vital life with abundant energy to
cope with the demands of being a wife, a
mother of three boys and entrepreneur.

to do is relax and listen to a soothing voice. Mindful

If we lived in a pollution and toxin-free environment and ate perfectly, we would not need supplements.
Pollution and toxins in your food and products oxidise your cells which basically rusts them from the inside.
Most people in the UK are vitamin D deficient from around November to May. The best vitamin D supplements
are in a spray form mixed in oil as it is a fat-soluble vitamin. You can have a quick spray under your tongue in the
morning with your breakfast. To help with good health and immune function, it’s good to take vitamin C, natural
anti-inflammatories, and antioxidants as well. There are some good daily multi-vitamin supplements on the
market that incorporate everything you need to get through the day and have a restful and regenerative night.

Dana suffered for years from extreme PMS symptoms that were
debilitating and severely impacting the quality of her life.
Learn how she managed to transform her “pain into purpose”
and now it is her passion to work with women (and even men and
children!) to understand and embrace the cyclic wave.
The Painful Past
I once was an ambitious young woman working in an academic environment, inflicted by a ‘little’
problem every month: PMS. Although I was using contraceptives to regulate my menstrual cycle and
reduce the symptoms, once a month for a few days, I was totally useless. I was feeling as if I had
barbed wire in my underbelly and my brain refused to work (which totally blocked me in my work, be
it preparing courses for my students, teaching, translating or writing articles). There was nothing I could
do apart from waiting for the moment that blood started to flow and the spasms subside.
On one occasion, it went so far that I almost fainted while waiting at an office.
But from a medical viewpoint, I was absolutely fine. The only solution was to take
painkillers to help with the debilitating pain.
I believe in synchronicities, and the turning point for
my suffering was when a friend of mine brought me
a film called Moon Inside You by a Slovakian
director, Diana Fabiánová. The film opened up a
new and unknown area to me – it showed me that
the menstrual cycle is something different than only
a few annoying days of pain. It showed me that the
menstrual cycle has another, more profound
meaning, which we were never told about.
Pain-Free and Full of Passion
The breakthrough for me was the moment I realised that pain and suffering was only an option – but it
was the only option I thought I had at the time. I stopped focusing on the negative symptoms and I even
stopped dreading the days that my menstrual phase would arrive.
And my pain didn’t reduce; it disappeared altogether!
I decided to learn more about the menstrual cycle and I came across books by Miranda Gray: Red
Moon and The Optimized Woman. And this is where my journey started, as I was inspired to share this
with other women and teach them how to start enjoying life with all the gifts that our cycle brings to us.

And this is how I discovered the magic of all the
four phases of the menstrual cycle and fell in love
with my cyclicity. I diligently observed what my
phases brought to me each month and every day.
I observed my feelings toward myself, my son, my
partner, and all of those around me. I observed
what was easy for me to do and what felt terribly
difficult. I observed when it was the best time to
write, to communicate with people, to be active
in the outside world or to be alone to relax.
It’s All About the Phases
I started to observe myself – how I changed every
day of the month. And instead of being upset that
I wasn’t always the same, that I wasn’t always
efficient, emotionally stable, beautiful and
radiating, I started enjoying it immensely that I was
ever-changing and different every day of the
The least favourite phase for me, as it is for most
women, was the pre-menstrual phase, due to the
premenstrual syndrome (although this has
completely disappeared for me and hasn’t been
back since!). But when I started to work with my
cycle, I became fascinated by the creative skills
and strong intuition brought about by this phase.
Also, I fell in love with the archetype of
Enchantress, which is associated with this phase.
Who would not want to be the charming,
seemingly unpredictable, charismatic
enchantress who ‘knows’ and who can
communicate with the world outside our usual
perceiving abilities and bring all these incredible
ideas, insights and advice into our own lives and
the lives of others? Who would not want to ride on
the wave of creative skills, when creativity is
literally gushing out of you and ideas are not
possible to stop…?
I started to observe my cyclic changes in my
business as well. How to deal with clients and
customers. How to communicate with my
colleagues. What I loved to do and when – and
what I hated to do and when. I tried to find out
how to tune it up in order to be efficient and feel
happy and relaxed at the same time.
Learn to ride the wave of
incredible creativity present in the
I discovered that the key was to do the right things
in the right phase. It was really fascinating and
helping me to live a happy and fulfilling life – and
this is why I share this knowledge worldwide.

How I Share My Passion
I am now an author, publisher and translator, and
I share my passion with others through courses,
workshops, seminars and I have one-to-one clients
around the world.
My greatest passion is writing, and I’ve written
three books on feminine cyclicity: The Balinese
Diary of a Cyclic Woman, my travel diary written
at an entrepreneurial study course in Bali,
organized by Roger Hamilton, the author of
Wealth Dynamics. Then a book for women about
how to fully apply their cyclic knowledge in
business and in life, entitled 7 Habits of the Efficient
Cyclic Woman. The last book I co-wrote with Erik
Hutter – and it is a book for men teaching them
how they can understand all the women around
them, A Manual to Women: Guiding the Modern
Man in the Unpredictable World of Women.
At the moment, these books are in Czech, but
translations are in place, so stay tuned…
Transforming Pain into Passion with Purpose
Looking back, I see that the same thing that
brought to me great discomfort and trouble in my
past, then became an impulse for me to find my
true-life passion and my mission. And this passion
and mission has been growing ever since and I
have been doing more and more of what I truly
love – and I can see this work of mine brings a lot
to other people as well.
If you would like to learn more about what I do,
and how you can ride the cyclic wave, please get

DO YOU HAVE AN INSPIRING STORY TO TELL?
I’m looking for people who have transformed their own lives, from pain to a passion with purpose. We all
have unique gifts and it’s time to help others to shine through so that they, too, can be inspired to live a
happier and more conscious and fulfilling life.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Did you know that the UK generates 11 billion pieces of single-use plastic
CauliBox is on a mission to reduce this number by offering takeout food in
sustainable packaging. The company makes reusable lunch boxes that are
affordable and also has a positive impact on the environment.
What if you can have the convenience of
takeaway without the environmental impact of
single-use containers? Our boxes can be reused
more than 500 times - according to the
Sustainability at Work research, 2014. "Reusable
dishware will use far less energy and resources over
its lifetime than its disposable counterparts. Even
with the energy and water needed to wash items,
the overall environmental impact is substantially
less than single-use, throw-away items.
And did you know that 11 billion takeaway
containers end up in the landfill every year?
(@hellohubbub, 2019) and that only 1/3 of
recyclable containers are actually recycled?
The waste produced chokes the air, pollutes the
ocean, and poisons the Earth - there has got to be
a better way. Our Caulibox scheme provides a
hassle-free system that eliminates single-use
packaging through a reusable lunchbox scheme.
What is CauliBox?
A lover of London street food, Jo co-founded
Caulibox because of the crazy amount of
waste she was seeing generated in her office
each week from takeaway boxes. And so, she
created Caulibox – London’s First Reusable
Caulibox is a digitally enabled, reusable lunch
box scheme which rewards people for being
sustainable. Hoping to create takeaway
without the throwaway, Jo’s mission is to make
sustainability more convenient and accessible
to everyone. Specifically, she’s aiming to save
15,000,000 single-use takeaway containers
every year, by making sustainability the
convenient choice. Just find one of their partner
street food vendors, scan their Caulibox QR
code when you collect your food and drop off
your box once you’ve enjoyed your meal.

What are the benefits to joining the scheme?
Unlike other schemes, CauliBox gives members
boxes to use and then drop off at a collection
point, where the boxes are washed in a
commercial kitchen, and energy saving
alternative to bring your own boxes. The scheme
also offers members incentives for usage with a
points system, rather than a discount, where you
earn points each time you use the service. The
points can add up to rewards such as Tate Modern
What are the environmental benefits?
What has been your biggest achievement so far?
A widely recognized food waste and sustainability
campaigner and entrepreneur, Jo has worked
with corporations such as Unilever and Sainsbury’s,
local authorities such as Camden Council, as well
as numerous food enterprises throughout London
to cut food waste and advise on sustainable
business practices. And more recently, Jo ran a
successful trial with the City of Westminster, signing
up over 200 people to the CauliBox membership
club, and saving more than 2,000 single-use
containers from landfill in just a few months.
We are also pleased to announce that Caulibox
was awarded two Innovate UK grants in 2020, with
plans to launch a delivery platform next year.
CauliBoxes are fully recyclable at the end of their
life cycle. Resilient to heat, leak-proof and odorproof,
the tried-and-tested CauliBox can be used
over 400 times before being fully recycled. This
eliminates the emissions and waste from over 400
Reusing containers minimises the need for
conventional recycling, which generates as much
as 67% of the emissions of virgin-materials through
processing and re-manufacturing. They are
collected and washed in batches in a commercial
dishwasher, which saves resources such as water
How can I help?
At the moment, CauliBoxes are only available in
London, but we are looking to expand into other
food markets and areas. You can sign up for our
waiting list at www.wearecauli.com! Or if you want
to recommend a business or a restaurant that may
be interested in joining the CauliBox scheme,
please do get in touch!

An Extraordinary Man
Les Flitcroft is a gifted
and practitioner of
Pranic Healing. He
has dedicated his life
to teaching and
spreading this work to
help as many people
as possible. As well as being a busy lecturer and fulltime
Pranic Healing Instructor, Les has a thriving
healing practice and has healed thousands of
people with a multitude of ailments.
He now spreads the teachings throughout the UK,

Healing to thousands of people, helping them to

MCKS Charitable Foundation
As a former Aerospace engineer, he was a natural
skeptic when it came to things like “energy healing”
but now teaches those in the medical profession,
psychologists, acupuncturists, massage therapists,
business professionals and parents.
Having met Les myself, I can honestly say that I’ve
never met a man who is so dedicated to selflessly
helping others and so full of heart. He has helped
me, personally, to transform in a way I once thought
unimaginable. Now I am inspired to follow in his
footsteps to also help others to my greatest
capacity. There is no doubt in my mind that he is an
extraordinary soul that is here to not only help others,
but also to spread a wider message to humanity to
what is actually possible in this amazing world of
energy. And take this from a converted skeptic –
once you learn it, your life will never be the same!
