those who are prepared to give something back to the
community in which they live.
is an authority on life balance, relationships and
all things spiritual.
is our pleasure to bring this interview to the Media
Man Australia audience.
a Speaker, Presenter, Trainer and Author specializing
in Life Balance and Relationships and have spent 25
years studying Mind Body Spirit areas of life and
Universal Laws. Also I have had considerable experience
in the beauty arena, in the corporate industry and
as a professional make up artist.
love working in a team to bring a project to fruition
and also love to be paid well for my efforts. I am
a professional with a strong business background and
need to be challenged with something new. I then give
it my all and do the best I can with it.
does your spiritual side come from?
the years I have had a natural learning towards developing
myself and becoming a better more balanced person.
The more we accept and love ourselves, the more balanced
and integrated we become as people. I believe in a
power or intelligence greater then us but don't know
what this is.
does your creative side come from?
naturally intuitive and also a logical well organized
person means that I need to put time aside to reflect
on things to allow my creative side to bring through
my inspiration. I like to spend time by myself tuning
out. Also I get a lot of good ideas just before I
go to sleep and they seem to clarify in finer details
when I wake up.
did you get involved in Channel 31?
was invited to Channel 31, Joys World program to do
an interview on Flirtation; it was called Flirting
Around The World. From there I met Joy Hruby and started
my own segment on her show, Joys World, called 'Dear
Angel' where I interview a guest and have a relationship
Q&A section at the end of my segment.
does a good relationship entail?
are about Compatibility and compromise. You need a
good dose of compatibility, at least 75%, ideally
more like 85 to 90, if you don't have that then you
don't have much. Then you need to throw in a dash
of compromise because that's what life is all about,
learning to get along with others. An intimate romantic
relationship will stretch your 'getting along with
others' skills to the hilt. A good relationship consists
of support and challenge, not all support as most
people want or believe they can have. This is a total
myth and an unrealistic expectation. A true committed
relationship is about learning and loving the good
bits as well as the icky bits and being able to work
through the challenging parts that are inevitable
with relationships. After all who wants to be with
someone who walks out when the going gets tough, its
about give and take, love and acceptance.
does one keep a relationship "fresh"?
is the best ingredient to keep love fresh. Doing all
those little things that you used to do when you first
got together. Buying little cards, sending flowers,
a romantic dinner for two, surprise presents. Many
couples start to take each other for granted after
a while and don't give each other the simple considerations
they did in the beginning. Even things like not assuming
you know what their answer is going to be or what
they want to do. Don't mould together so close that
you lose your individuality. Stay interesting to each
other by keeping a part of your life separate and
remember to love, respect and be considerate of each
other, all basic good manners.
are relationships "hard work"?
relationships seem to be hard work because they challenge
us to be better people. Even close friends, family
and work associates can stay on a somewhat superficial
level but a romantic intimate relationship goes the
whole way. Especially if you live together or are
married, after a short period of time, usually 3 months
of being in close proximity of each other, your guard
drops and you get to show the other person the real
you. This is where the compromise part comes in. There
is no better way to develop your inner personal self
then to get involved in a close or committed relationship.
Then comes the challenging part, coming to terms with
who you are, because you learn all sorts of things
not only about your partner but about yourself too.
is fun important?
keeps the lightness in a relationship, it allows us
to let loose and bring the child out in us. Life can
become ever so serious with careers, financial commitments
and children to bring up and support that without
any fun it can become dull boring and a drudge. Fun
is a natural part of our being and if it is lacking
in a relationship this is when a partner can unconsciously
look for it elsewhere and start to enjoy the company
of others who provide this part of life for them.
audience is interested to know your relationship status?
am very much in love with an American man called Terry,
who lives in Orlando, Florida. We travel back and
forth to see each other and I totally him. A decision
has not been made as yet to make a further commitment,
and for now we enjoy speaking on the phone daily and
communicating by email in-between our visits. Terry
is a great communicator and we talk about anything
and everything. With this type of relationship, because
you don't have the face-to-face contact, you build
a very strong friendship, which is an essential ingredient
for a happy and lasting relationship.
a typical day for you?
like to go to bed late because I seem to get a burst
of energy around 5.00pm, which keeps me on the computer
working till about 8.00 or 9.00pm. Then by this time
my boyfriend in America is up because its 6.00 or
7.00am in the morning over there so we talk on the
phone, generally for about an hour or so, then I like
to watch TV. First I check out Fox News and Sky News
to see what's happening locally and internationally
on the news front. Then I switch to something light
like Sienfield so I can chill out and clear my mind
of the daily 'stuff' before I go to sleep. Then just
before I go to sleep I think about any opportunity
or issue that I need some guidance on and let that
permeate whilst I am sleeping. Then when I wake up
I find I have much more clarity and the answers are
there or at least clearer. I love to sleep in but
force myself to get out of bed around 5.30ish, make
a cup of green tea, check my emails, get back into
bed so I can slumber for 30 minutes whilst watching
the news again and then off to the gym for the 7.30
torture class or a bike ride on my push bike, depending
on the weather. After that each day is different.
I could be writing my book, column or newsletters,
or out on a presenting job or just doing general office
admin stuff. And occasionally I will treat myself
and catch up with a girlie friend for some well overdue
gossip and lunch. At the moment I'm doing acting classes
and studying applied psychology. Next year I'm planning
to learn Japanese, mainly so I can talk to the people
in my favorite Japanese restaurant which I go to about
twice a week and Terry my American man also speaks
some Japanese. So life is busy and when life is full
and busy its important to priorities your day's activities
and the people you spend your time with. There are
some people who I love to see and are a priority,
and others who I find negative or less then pleasant
to be around so I limit time with them. It's important
to stay positive and optimistic about life and invite
people into your life who have the same values.
books have you authored?
first book I wrote was on angels and how to develop
your intuitive instincts by getting in touch with
your inner angel titled Send Me An Angel. I have also
written 2 books on relationships, one on Dating and
the other on Flirtation, both to be published in 2004.
I am now writing a book on divorce and how to find
love after divorce, which I am interviewing people
on to be able to show a variety of situations.
do you consider to be your career highlights?
my books has certainly been highlights for me and
also I had a stage show designed around my Angel book
called Send Me An Angel, which was fun. I also had
my own talk back radio show, which I loved but speaking
and particularly TV presenting is the thing I love
the most. I have a good connection with the camera
and it allows me to communicate with a large number
of people all at once.
goals are you working towards?
have developed a show, which is multicultural based
and different to anything on TV at the moment. My
mission in life is to help people have better relationships
and to bring people together of all cultures and this
show would bring this dream true for me. Other than
that, I love any TV work and intend to write many
more books and columns sharing my advice to many worldwide.
do you give back to the community?
like to do something on a community bases. At the
moment I am working on community TV, Joys World and
I do the production co-ordination for this show as
well. Previously I have spent time on committees of
non-profit business organizations such as SWAP bringing
educational networking experiences to small business
people within the local market. I am presently looking
for a charity to support that I can also be a figurehead
does technology help and hinder you?
love my computer and being up to day with technology.
There are so many things you can do now to communicate
with the world. Audio, video and written, it appeals
to everyone on one level or another. But I hate it
when something goes wrong. I am learning to be more
computer literate but most things I just do not know
how to fix, so I have a great computer guy who helps
me get going again. I love my email and can't stand
it if it's not working, I feel like my lifeline has
persistent; commitment and being positive wins in
do you do to relax?
meditate when I want to get inspiration or back in
balance. I have a Rapid Relaxation process, which,
I designed, and teach to busy people who don't have
time to relax. But what I really like to do to relax
is to be by myself and just be quiet, either watching
TV, or just sitting and reflecting on things. Watching
TV is great for me, movies take my mind totally off
everything and give me a break. I love movies, on
the TV or at the cinema, girlie ones, teary ones and
action movies. Actually I am not keen on the real
die-hard thrillers and I don't like horror. Other
than that, walks with my gorgeous man and dining out,
mainly at Japanese restaurants are all part of my
note: a fascinating, deep and spiritual interview
