I was interviewed this morning by the delightful Adrienne Barker about my books and writing. Interviewers, note! If you want your guest to shine, you must shine! Adrienne is a wonderful example of this. She is so enthusiastic that you just feel like smiling!
Adrienne’s background is in marketing and product promotion, but she just decided to start up a radio show/podcast ‘because’! This link to listen to our conversation!
When Blair Beattie was a child his favourite pastime was playing in the local nature reserve. As an adult, he followed his heart in and out of restaurants, photography, travel and fashion, until he found himself creating medicinal and market gardens, and learning from mentors like soil and compost guru, Paul Taylor. And then he came across Farmer’s Footprint, an organisation dedicated to restoring regenerative farming practices, and he became so inspired that he decided to join their team.
Blair is one of the most relaxed, confident, optimistic and warm-hearted people I have met! We were both rolling our eyes over some of the craziness this past year has produced but his sense of humour prevailed. If you’ve been finding the year stressful, you’ll enjoy just basking in his energy during the 30 minutes or so of our conversation.
I wanted to interview Blair because I’ve decided to donate 20% of the profits of my latest novel, Power of the Light, to Farmer’s Footprint. Farmer’s Footprint was created by Dr Zach Bush, who felt that he could make greater inroads into his patients’ health by helping to eliminate pesticides such as glyphosate (Roundup) from our soils and encouraging a return to healthy farming practices.

We’re all doing a wild ride this year and I am loving where it is taking us! We can now see, more clearly than ever, who has been ‘driving the world’, what their true agendas are, and how we can take back the reins of our lives!
From childhood Jasna Kasovac had recurring back aches and eye infections to the point of losing her sight for periods of time. Finally a practitioner identified the cause: the auto-immune disease spondylitis. The solution offered was a lifetime on medication. Jasna decided not to travel that path.

I’ve been asked to share my perspective on the state of the world from a ‘Law of Attraction’ point of view:
How would you respond if you’d lived a healthy, active life and were then suddenly given a terminal breast cancer diagnosis?
Janette Murray-Wakelin was told she had six months to live. While she wasn’t drawn to any of the ‘cut, burn or poison’ options, she agreed to surgery because of the pressure exerted on her. Not only was this surgery scheduled to fit in with the surgeon’s golfing calendar (such a cliché!), but it created complications of its own. (Look up ‘iatrogenic disease’.)
Having been vegetarian for years, Janette became a raw vegan, and today mostly eats fruit. She has been cancer-free for 20 years. In 2016 she and her husband

I finished writing Power of the Light in 2014 and it sat in my filing cabinet until now, when the perfect storm hit: illness, fear, government control, etc. This new book tackles all of those issues, so I decided to launch in the midst of the coronavirus.
As I went down the rabbit hole on many aspects of what is behind today’s virus and lockdown, I discovered Zach Bush MD. (Bio below.)
If you haven’t yet heard this doctor speak, or, better still, watched him on video, I highly recommend that you do. Dr Bush is possibly the most humble and thoughtful and inspiring doctor I have ever encountered. Each interview I have watched touches me at a deep level. Here are a few snippets:
Yvonne Chamberlain said, ‘No way!’ and she headed in the opposite direction – to Mexico.
Yvonne shares exactly what she was advised to do at the clinic in Mexico and then at the Gerson Institute where she signed up for a health program and then studied with them. There might be a few gory details but you can deal with them!
I'm sure you will enjoy and appreciate Yvonne's story in this 35-minute conversation. I was touched by Yvonne’s honesty as she shared her journey, which including facing some home truths about her attitude to life and her husband.
Stand by for more inspiring interviews as I interview people who have used natural means to recover from cancer as part of my campaign to launch my new novel, Power of the Light, which is about a boy whose father has cancer.
This is the third blog in a series asking if Critical Thinking has been removed from the English school curriculum. It certainly seems to be missing in the community, although I am heartened to see a number of independent media outlets now publishing excellent articles that question the covid narrative. More and more mainstream players are also emerging, such as Economist Gigi Foster, who is questioning whether the relatively few covid deaths justify lockdowns in the context of the vast number of deaths from suicide, abuse, depression, delayed operations and other health care, etc. Yay re the voice of Reason and Common Sense!!!!
If governments truly had our best at heart, we would be given:
- the truth about the virus being no threat to the average healthy individual
- the truth that the public health crisis caused by the fear and lockdown is occurring in numbers far greater than the number of covid cases, and has long-term implications
- the truth that the economic crisis caused by the fear and lockdown is far worse than the impact of the coronavirus
Our ideas and beliefs are all formed in response to the information we absorb. We are overwhelmed with information these days, and very often the source of that information is suspect. How do we evaluate our sources of information? One key tool that every human being has access to is Common Sense.
There are so many violations of common sense in the way the current ‘pandemic’ is being managed that I am truly gobsmacked. (Eg. Why does the virus only attack people shopping in small ‘non-essential’ businesses, while it stays out of the superstores like Coles, Woolworths, Bunnings, etc.? Why are masks, which don't prevent the transmission of viruses but do pose dangers to our health, being widely mandated?)
Perhaps the most stunning loss of Common Sense is reflected in the facts about how viruses occur and how we develop strong immune systems that
It certainly looks like it’s been absent for years! The dearth of Critical Thinking in the community right now is alarming.
And has Common Sense died alongside it?
I still remember the impact of a critical thinking class I attended as a secondary school student in which I was startled to learn that a statistic doubling might be as little as one more – i.e. if the original number is one, you only have to add one to double the amount. We think of doubling as being likely to result in a large number but it’s not always the case. As I was taught in a personal development course years ago: ‘ASSUME makes an ASS out of U and ME’.
Most of us have heard statements like, ‘You can use statistics / the Bible /
To mask, or not to mask: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the home to suffer
The rules and directives of the powers that be
Or to take arms against a sea of contradictions,
And by opposing end them? To succumb: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That a citizen is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d.
You are probably aware that the actual statistics for the Covid19 event we are experiencing fall way short of the extreme 'plague-like' numbers that were initially touted. 2017 and 2018 are still considered to have been much more serious flu seasons than the current one, but there was no lockdown back then; it was just dealt with in the normal fashion.
The current extreme measures of house arrests, behavioural control and a vaccine that is being rushed through without any safety tests is suspicious, to say the least. But the immediate troubling fallout of global lockdown is the economic hardship and stress being experienced around the world. That's not to say that
