November Update: Sold up and Moving on

November 2015, kids biking down front drive

We are excited to share with you that Kyabra Station is officially sold as of yesterday afternoon!

We have been really busy the last few months and it looks like we will continue to be so as we begin to plan and organise aspects of our future, as well as, pack up and sort out all the residue that is part of finalising the property sale, closing accounts and shutting down twenty years of business.

Pete and I are learning that doing things in harmony with Principles of God’s Truth, Love and God’s Laws makes life smoother and more simple. Dealing with past actions that we have taken and ‘tidying’ up family matters and company dealings that originated out of addictions and unloving desires has at times, been confronting, emotionally and physically painful and time consuming.

It is great to be getting everything sorted out, and beginning to find the causes for the issues being there in the first place. I feel this is very important for future business dealings. So though we have found aspects of this process challenging, there are many lessons of love to learn*, if we are open and willing to feel them.

Where to now?

For Eloisa and Peter:

For the next few weeks we will be staying on to help out with the transition of the property to the new owners, this also allows the kids time to finish up their school year neatly. This is a gift to all of us as it means we don’t have to rush to pack up and leave immediately and gives us the opportunity to fully sort out a few issues that still need to be tidied up about the place. It also gives the new people coming in a bit of extra time to find a new manager.

Once we leave we are looking forward to having a rest and beginning/furthering plans for some exciting future projects (more to come on this at http://discoverylearningcentre.org )

It will be the first time in our life that there is not ‘something to do’ ALL the time and we look forward to creating a lifestyle that gives ourselves an environment that totally supports us feeling and growing our relationship with God and our own soul. I feel pretty in awe that this opportunity is being presented to us. A year ago I didn’t even realise this was a possibility. How cool is GOD!!!

  • We are noticing that in times of stress, reminding ourselves of God’s Truth* on any given matter is super helpful and that when we keep feeling, that things are much smoother and feel better, even when initially they may have felt like a catastrophe. When we are resistant and don’t feel, the issues seem to get even bigger.

October Update

Discovery Learning Centre

Discovery Learning Centre

Our life has been pretty busy over the last few months.

The main reason for this post is to let those of you who are interested know that due to changes in our life, that this website will not be in use for much longer and that Kyabra Station will soon belong to new people and so we will not be using this blog site anymore, and the Kentucky Learning Centre will no longer be in existence.

We are planning to still run a Learning Centre, it will just be in a different location with a different name. Our intentions and desires to have a place to demonstrate Principles of God’s Truth in action on Earth still remain the same!

We have another blog set up with all the information that is currently on this one, plus more. The Discovery Learning Centre Blog will be our site until we set up a website sometime in the future to cover all our planned endeavors.

Our new blog is:

http://discoverylearningcentre.org

and Peter and I are contactable on the following email address from now on:

consult@godswayoflove.org

I will put up a last post when the sale of Kyabra officially goes through, until then we wait, pack, plan and get ready for a whole new phase of our lives!

We are excited!! smile.

A little update of what has been going on over the last few months(there is more detailed information on the Discovery Learning Centre site):

Pete has been negotiating the sale of Kyabra Station and we are now awaiting approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board. If this goes through we are planning to leave Kentucky sometime in November and move to Wilkesdale, Queensland. The exact date will depend on how much consultation  with the new owners is needed in order to make the transition smooth.

We are packing up all our ‘stuff’ and by golly does there seem to be a lot. So now is a process of thinning out and giving away all the things we have no longer, need, want or have not used for years and packing and storing all the things that may be useful for our future endeavors.

We have been traveling between Queensland and NSW every few weeks for various planning meetings and have had the wonderful opportunity to learn more about God, God’s Truth, and God’s Love, and personal truth about ourselves, from our beautiful friends Jesus and Mary – we are so grateful for your advice and guidance – in all areas!

I am observing more and more God wanting to teach us all sorts of Truth’s and expose all manner of areas where we are out of harmony with love through the Law of Attraction, in every moment of our day. I am beginning to become more aware of this, particularly as we plan and engage changes in our lives.

The Law of Attraction is very precise and very clear, we are just not always accurately interpreting what God is trying to tell us due to our emotional injuries and sometimes just down right arrogance or desire to avoid listening because we don’t want to know for some reason. We are noticing when we react or act in the latter unloving ways, that things do not go smoothly or well for us. So Thanks God for continuously giving us the opportunity to change and for loving us enough to actually give us feedback and the opportunity to change constantly!! Life has the possibility to be truly incredible – ALL THE TIME! How exciting!

So on that note, have a wonderful week and for further information on our plans, future ideas and any future posts please visit our new site (link above).

What Is Divine Truth?.

(Click on link above.)

I discovered this on my lovely friend Mary’s blog, ‘Notes Along The Way’ today and feel it is a clear, concise and well articulated overview of what Divine Truth is and is not. It has heaps of great information.

A great source for anyone who has never heard of Divine Truth and is interested in an overview of Divine Truth; great for checking out if what you thought Divine Truth was is what it really is; and great for getting excited about God, everything about God’s creations and awesomeness, your own soul, Love, God’s Laws, and heaps of other clarifying information.

Thanks Jesus and Mary for sharing so openly and for being really clear! Love it!

Everyone enjoy!

Changes

There is a lot going on in our lives at the moment, including some potentially wonderful changes and I though I would send out an update with where we are all at.

Some of you may have heard that we have the property ‘Kyabra Station’ in Kentucky (aka The Kentucky Learning Centre) on the market to sell. This is true and the four of us (Peter, Susan, Michael and I) are hoping to sell as soon as possible.

When Kyabra Station sells our intentions are as follows:

Peter and I  (Eloisa) have purchased a small property in Wilkesdale, Queensland, which will be a base where we can keep our personal belongings, conduct experiments and come back to after periods of traveling, exploring and discovering. We would love to do projects in harmony with Principles of God’s Truth around Australia and overseas.

We will still be running a Learning Centre, it will just be in a different form than it is now.

What we learn, trial & discover we will share with others and this can be done wherever we are and whatever we are doing. We feel we kind of are the learning centre, smile, and so wherever we are we will continue to experiment, explore, discover and share our findings.

We will continue doing projects including environmental experiments and education programs in the future. We feel that we would like to be in more of a consulting role and travel more widely, sharing what we learn and any discoveries we make. We feel that we can only share what we have actually experienced and we feel that will grow with time and as we learn and discover more along the way.

Pete and I have a growing desire to begin to right the wrongs we have contributed to in the world due to the way we have chosen to live our lives so far. Particularly at this time in regards to what we have done to the children in our care, the environment and animals.

We would like to share our experiences of where we have come from, where we are right now and what we discover in the future in the hope that others may benefit from our experiences. We desire to share the up’s, downs, transitions, exciting things, challenges and resistance’s so that you may learn from our mistakes, if you desire to, and hopefully to demonstrate that real, lasting soul change is the most powerful change and is totally possible. We will include our personal discoveries of ‘how to’ in making those changes on our blogs and websites as we find out, ‘how to do it’ ourselves, smile.

We have begun a new Blog site that by the end of the year will become our main sharing medium for the future. You can check it out here, its called – Discovery Learning Centre:

www.discoverylearningcentre.org

It has everything from the ‘Kentucky Learning Centre’ on it and will have much more in the future from different places and spaces.

Our YouTube Channel is still the same:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc3HpSoS743CoZ0WcS67IHw

And from now on we are contactable via:

consult@godswayoflove.org

Peter and Eloisa’s personal blog remains the same:

The Black Sheep of the Family

20150223 Blackie Ram
20150223 Blackie the Ram with the black tongue. The reason his wools looks a bit brown/black is from sun damage and weathering (UV rays) on the wool which causes discolouration on the tip of the wool. Blackie, blackie Jnr have the badger gene which is why they have the white on their forehead’s and tails.

We thought it would be a really fun project to select a superfine black merino flock – specifically for growing black superfine merino wool as a luxury commodity.

In the superfine wool industry and wool producing merino sheep world, black sheep are ostracized. They must be shorn separately as if there wool gets mixed in with the white wool it ‘contaminates’ it and makes it ‘unsalable’. Black sheep are usually the first to be culled (killed) and have little to no value in the wool industry.

So we decided that we would attempt to change this and open the world to the possibility of change. Pete wanted to genetically select sheep for a blue black fleece. There are a range of colours in merino sheep including white white, yellow white, brown, badger – a combo of black, spots, brown and white, brown-black, black-black, and the possibility of blue-black, and many other colour combinations.

When Pete discovered a ram lamb with a black tongue he felt he was onto something and indeed he was (the black tongue is important as it is more likely that the animal carries dominant black wool genes). Any ewe with traces of black wool or the potential of carrying the black wool gene were also selected. This included small black spots on the face, badger or spotted sheep or any who had produced black lambs in the past.

Jim Watts who developed SRS sheep (more information can be found on Jim’s website: http://www.srsmerino.com ) has classed sheep with Pete for the last 20 years was keen on the project also. He said that the likelihood of a black wool progeny on the first cross was pretty much zero, so how excited were we when a little black wool ewe popped out. And then a little ram lamb in the second cross.

20150225 Blackie Jnr the sheep. The reason his wools looks a bit brown/black is from sun damage and weathering (UV rays) on the wool which causes discolouration on the tip of the wool. Blackie, blackie Jnr have the badger gene which is why they have the white on their forehead's and tails.

The little flock was growing.

So when we decided to disperse the flock we were concerned for the future of the selected black wool sheep as their future did not look very bright. But thank’s to Jim we were introduced to another couple of graziers who had had a similar idea to ourselves.

They own a small spinning mill and spin their own fibre and plan to spin black wool into yarn and cloth. They brought some of the black wool flock and so the project will continue.

We feel it is exciting that there are people with the desire to do things differently in the world and challenge the status quo. We are also excited that Blackie and his family will live out their lives in luxury and care with people who like sheep (we heard that one particular sheep where Blackie has moved to eats the occasional Jatz cracker for morning tea*, and turns it’s nose up at any other brand).

If you are interested in finding out more about the black wool sheep Hansie and Gary Armour are contactable at: http://www.milkymerino.com or at the following email address: hansie47@hotmail.com (They also spin milk into fibre, and Alpaca fibre as well as merino wool/wool at their mill).

Our Experience With Sheep, Lice & God

A Law of Attraction in Action Post

20150505 Lice sheep & shedding
20150505 Sheep with lice coming into the yards to be sorted

We have had some pretty cool Law of Attraction events happen lately.One in particular stands out.

Lice in sheep is not something that is openly mentioned in the grazing industry. Usually people would rather get rid of it and not mention that it exists in their flocks than be honest about it.
When I first arrived at Kyabra Station, Pete prided himself on having no lice in the sheep and being a ‘closed flock’ who didn’t get lice. He had a lot invested in this and if we did have lice or problems with the animals they were kept quiet and not openly mentioned. I have noticed there is a lot of shame in having ‘problems’ with livestock and so it often goes unmentioned.
How things have changed, smile. We are in the midst of working through a lot of ethical issues to do with keeping animals for financial gain and we are in the process of selling the entire flock of sheep as we cannot continue to justify what we are doing.
So when Pete discovered that we had a mob of lousy sheep  (Sheep with lice) he was not impressed. There is an emotional reason why we attracted this event and interestingly enough it coincided with some people wanting to buy some of the sheep also.
20150505 Lice sheep
20150505 Sheep showing signs of lice

So Pete had a couple of choices: he could say nothing and say he had no sheep to sell. Or he could tell the truth. Pete told the Truth.

He called our livestock agent and said, ‘We have discovered signs of lice in the sheep. We are happy to sell them, but we want anyone desiring to purchase them, to know that they have lice and be open & upfront about it’.
We had fear that no one would buy them along with various other emotions. We felt some of this and low and behold people still wanted to buy the sheep, even with lice.
I feel the Law of Attraction is awesome, I reckon it was a way of showing Pete that when he is Truthful, has integrity and is ethical he is harmony with God’s Laws and so wonderful ‘surprises’ can happen, which in the past we never thought possible.
Over the last couple of months over three thousand commercial ewes (sheep) with lice have been sold (to graziers who were okay about purchasing sheep with possible lice. Most of the sheep do not have lice.) We have never experienced this before.
20150505 Lice in sheep wool, close up

Lice is just like head lice in humans, except it is a sheep specific breed. It is curable by shearing and dipping or back lining the sheep in/with a chemical solution, just like you would treat lice in humans.

It causes sheep to feel itchy and irritated which then causes them to bite, chew and rub their wool in an attempt to ease the itching. This causes mass cotting of the wool in extreme cases.
20150505 Lice sheep biting

We found out some previously sold sheep had also showed up with lice so we have paid for the treatment of those sheep, as we were not aware at the time of sale that they had lice.

20150505 Lice in sheep wool, pulled wool from biting. The first signs of cotting
20150505 Lice in sheep wool, pulled wool from biting. The first signs of cotting

Then the coolest part of this story happened. We were contacted by an animal research centre who wanted 120 sheep who were ‘as lice-y as possible’ to try out a new drench on. (I am not sure how I feel about them being tested with chemicals) But the fact that we were being asked for lice-y sheep was pretty cool.

We got a call a few days later saying that 20 were not lice-y enough and could they come and get some more as we were the only lice-y sheep in the district. This of course is not true but due to the fact that pretty much everyone is not truthful or downplay’s any disease or imperfection in animals no lice-y sheep could be found.
So really I feel that the moral to the story is to honour Truth, Love, be Humble, Ethical and upfront always and feel the fears within yourself, then God’s Laws can work with you rather than against you and amazing possibilities become realities.
I feel delighted in being given the gift of seeing the positive results of being Truthful,and living in harmony with God’s Laws, when you do good things always happen.
