    BOOK SALE TO HELP AUSTRALIA

    BOOK SALE TO HELP AUSTRALIA

     

    Here are Lake and Banks enjoying a dairy free ice cream in Santa Barbara just weeks ago:

     

     

    I’ve had a fascination with SB ever since my childhood in Russia because of a famous soap opera of the same name. 

    But this post isn’t about any of that. 

    It’s about Australia. 

    As we were driving to SB, we witnessed a tiny snippet of the aftermath of the Californian bushfires. 

    It was so heartbreaking, so depressing. 

    My whole heart hurt for anyone that was part of the devastation. 

    And then Australia. OMG. 

    We have so many friends that live there. My sister in law lives there. Elliot and I lived there for almost a year ourselves! 

     

     

    Our kiwi friends are now posting pictures of what their skies look like in NZ because of the blaze in the atmosphere. 

    The smoke is so thick, it can be seen from space! 

    25 people already lost their lives. 

    An estimated 1 BILLION animals - gone! 

    2000 homes - destroyed! 

    The 2019 Californian wildfires were severe and vicious, but the size of Australian land burned is now over 80 times that. EIGHTY!!!! 

    There are 2,700 firefighters battling this war and many are volunteers. 

    And, worst of all is that the fire season in Australia is far from over with an estimated 8 weeks still ahead. 

    And, maybe worse still is that I feel so powerless and whatever I’ve recently donated feels so silly. 

    Then I asked the question on social media regarding how we can best help from afar and one comment remained with me ever since:

     

    “Thank you for sharing our situation, please do not forget us in the months and years ahead as that is when we will need your support the most.”

     

    I’m now reading updates about how recent rainfall gave relief to some areas but all I hear is the sad reality of the comment above.

    And I really really want to do more!

     

    Tanya Maher The Uncook Book Hay House

     

    So, until this Saturday 25th January, I’m holding a sale on all of my ebooks and physical book (The Uncook Book, which I will sign and send to anywhere in the world) and sending all proceeds to animal rescues that are working tirelessly to save the most helpless creatures. 

    My heart is broken. 

    I’m still undecided as to which animal rescue, so if you know of a small one that’s calling out for support, please let me know below in the comments section of this post.

    Hopefully, together we can raise enough cash to send money to several. 

    Please please please donate! 

    Buy a book for yourself and your health! 

    Buy multiple books as gorgeous gifts! 

    Every penny of profits in this sale will go to Australia 💔

    STEPS TO MAKING A WISH THAT COMES TRUE

    Tanya Maher _ Lake Maher _ Banks Maher

    Happy new year/ new decade/ new everything, my friends!

    We just returned from an amazing Christmas and NYE in California and I'm here to remind you that if you haven't written out your wishes for 2020 yet (or if you have and just want to make sure that you're all set up for manifestation success) - you are not too late :)

    I like to call these grand desires for the new year 'wishes' instead of 'goals', because that's one word that doesn't seem to cause anxiety or pressure, it feels light, inspiring and positive. Plus, I don't know about you, but when I make 'wishes', I tend to smile widely, dream freely and breathe beautifully, which is not always the experience with 'goal' setting.


    I've already written several times about the magic of sending out wishes to the universe, but today I have a new fun one to share. And, I'll recap your top favourites for the highest success rate also...


    1. GRATITUDE LIST.



    Take some time in late December or beginning of January (now is the perfect time:)) to write out all the big, small and tiny accomplishments of the previous 12 months. There is nothing as thrilling, motivating, inspirational, fun, eye opening, gratifying, healing and self-appreciating all at the same time. The state of gratitude you create within your being will send signals to the universe that you're ready for more! 

    Read more detail on this method here:  tanyasliving.com/blogs/tanyas-blog/the-most-important-thing-i-do-all-year


    2. WISH LIST ON FIRE. 



    Write down your greatest wishes and desires for the new year. Read them over, breathe them in and imagine as though everything on that paper is already yours right now. Fold it up and set fire to it. You've just released all attachment to the outcome and gave your creator the nod that you're trusting Him to guide you there.

    Read more detail on this method and how I knew a little girl was coming before I was even pregnant, here: tanyasliving.com/blogs/tanyas-blog/how-i-knew-a-little-girl-was-coming-before-i-was-even-pregnant

     


    3. VISION BOARD.

     

    Cut out images and words in magazines and print-outs, which inspire you and represent all the things, feelings, desires, goals and wishes which you truly dream of. Place the cut-outs on a large clipboard and arrange them until the complete picture feels right, then glue them in place. Now that your vision board is ready, place or hang it where it can’t be ignored. Take it all in, see it as a whole, see it as individual parts and then breathe as though they have already happened. Give it a little attention daily and celebrate with deep gratitude each desire that is coming true for you. Remember that you’ve done your job, so become an observer, let go of any attachments to it and let the universe do its job.


    See what I ticked off my vision board and read what got me into starting this annual ritual, here:  tanyasliving.com/blogs/tanyas-blog/revealing-my-personal-vision-board-for-the-very-first-time-steps-to-create-your-own


    4. BALLOON RELEASE.


    This is a brand new edition to my wishing ritual since my mum posted the steps to this practice recently, so I'm simply translating it for you from Russian...

     

    During the New Year transition period, it is customary to make new plans and dream of a beautiful future. And everyone really wants these dreams to come true. I can share with you one practice that will help.

     

    Make a wish and release your balloon..

    a. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath, exhale. Send a smile to the whole world. Make a wish. Now imagine the wish as it if is already realised - in your mind's eye picture your exact surrounds in as much detail as possible, include the scent, what you might hear, how you might be breathing and how you might be feeling.

    b. Open your eyes and without hesitation, select a balloon in the picture. Remember that the first choice comes from your Higher Self, and the second and subsequent ones are a derivative of logical thinking. So, looking at your magic balloon, mentally infuse it with your desire and its complete picture you've just created. When you are ready to let the balloon go, say to yourself: “I am sending my important balloon to the Creator for consideration and to fulfil my wish!”

    c. Blow this balloon from the picture, clap your hands joyfully and do not look at it anymore so as not to delay its flight.

    You can make three wishes daily, especially around the New Year and your birthday. Just don’t tell anyone about them. Let your desires gain strength and reach the divine miracle makers.

    Know that if you infuse your balloon with a desire to get revenge on someone or to do a nasty deed, then that balloon will burst before it reaches the sky and the contents of it will land all over YOU. I did not make this up, they are basic cosmic laws for us Earthlings. Therefore, my advice to this scenario would look something like this: if you have enemies, then mentally create and send a wish into the balloon in which your ill-wishers will live long and happy lives.

    Wish, wish, wish away and everything will return to you :) 

     

    BIG LOVE,

    xTanya

    P.S. I'd love to know if you've tried any of the above or whether you have a wishing tip of your own. Please share with all of us in the comments below...

     

    Final Afternoon Tea for this decade!

    Tanya Maher Chris Bowen

    2019 has been a big year for us and our famous half raw / half baked vegan afternoon teas!

     

    We were the first ever plant-based tea in history to make it all the way to the finals of Afternoon Tea Of The Year 2019.

     

    I published our recipes, shopping list and a whole hour-by-hour schedule of how to recreate this very same experience, in an ebook, which is now owned by over 500 people worldwide: tanyasliving.com/collections/tanyas-ebooks/products/in-the-wild-afternoon-tea-recipes

     

    Quotes like this are received after every single event:

    “Tanya has taken vegan desserts to a completely new level. The chocolate peanut butter mousse, blueberry & lemon ‘cheesecake’, doughnuts, scones, truffles, sandwiches! Just wow. 10 STARS! Talking with my better half, he too agreed it was the best Afternoon Tea we’ve been to."  - @theturbanedchef (Cee), London

     

    And this entire experience is single-handedly organised, prepared and brought to our amazing diners by just Chris and I. Chris Bowen is our F&B manager, who also happens to bake the vegan scones fresh every morning of the event :)

     

    Saturday 14th December  +  Tuesday 31st December  =  Just 2 more Afternoon Teas before the end of the year! Before 2020! Before a brand new decade!!

     

    We only have the smallest handful of spaces left for both dates and if that's not enough to make you hurry to us, I'll just leave these customer posts from last week's tea, right here for ya...

    Mango Chai & Gingerbread Lime Cheezecake (nut free, dairy free, gluten free, raw)

    Tanya Maher Mango Chai & Gingerbread Lime Cheezecake

    I don’t know about you but for some reason I’m enjoying the festive season even more than ever this year.

     

    Maybe it’s got something to do with this Xmas being the last one of this decade!

     

    Tanya Maher family Christmas

     

    Maybe it’s got something to do with having little children (that help you to become aware and be in awe of every little thing).

     

    Maybe it’s because I don’t have a giant 8.5 month preggie belly like I did last year and in 2015 (so I can do cool and ‘dangerous’ things like ice skating!)

     

    Tanya Maher pregnant Christmas

     

    Maybe it’s the giddy thought of our forthcoming flight to California and spending Christmas Day the American way with my best friend, aka Lake’s Godmama.

     

    Maybe it’s the ecstatic feeling of making New Year’s Eve plans with my sister and the thought of seeing more of her in 2020. (A very Russian belief says that the people you’re welcoming in the new year with are the people you’ll be spending a lot of time with over that new year. It may be superstitious but I’ve always enjoyed choosing my NYE crew thoughtfully- you’re guaranteed a great party if nothing else).

     

    Tanya Maher Amy Clinckard ice skating national history museum

     

    Maybe it’s because I finally feel like I got my health back and I’ve lots of energy and extra hours in my day to enjoy being alive! (Thanks to LMS Wellness for all the advice and to my fellow Hay House author, Medical Medium for all the info on celery juice, which I’m now drinking for the forth week in a row).

     

    Or maybe it’s all because of our Christmas tree in The Living Room

     

    Or the fact that this is the only month of the year, that we're holding not one, not two, but three Festive In The Wild Afternoon Teas.

     

    Or maybe it's the fact that I had a stall at my first ever (which also happens to be my favourite ever!) Christmas Market this year. Walton Street Market was seriously the best! Reindeer, camels, owls, jazz, traditional organ grinder, the Xmas carols quire, hot kombucha, my cheezecakes not melting, festive vibes for dayzzzz!

     

    Tanya's Deli Walton Street Christmas Market

     

    Or maybe it's because 1st of December landed on a Sunday this year and we kicked off the 2019 festivities at a Christmas lunch with special friends.

    I made this nut-free Mango Chai & Lime Cheezecake on a Gingerbread Base and it was a hit and a half! Now you too can make it...

    HOW CUTTING YOUR HAIR CAN TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE (AND HEAL SOMEONE ELSE'S)

    HOW CUTTING YOUR HAIR CAN TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE (AND HEAL SOMEONE ELSE'S)

    Did you know that hair (like everything) is energy?

    Therefore it receives information and holds on to memories, events and experiences of whatever you’ve been going through.

    There are even intuitive hairdressers and psychics out there who can read your hair and suggest what length you need to cut off as that period of your life no longer serves you and may have been about trauma or heartache which you are still walking around with.

    If you consider the fact that cats receive information via their whiskers and a whole lot can be revealed about a person’s DNA when studying a single strand of their hair, it doesn’t seem so wacky or wild )

    I find it mega fascinating. Don’t you?

    I also love loooooove getting hair cuts.

    It’s incredibly freeing and feels so good to ‘let go’ and ‘release’.

    Over the years of my journey as a wellness coach, I’ve learned loads about attachment, so it feels extra good to free myself off of it whenever my hair is chopped off!

    Soooo, on Monday I got 12 inches taken off the length of my locks and not a single regret.

    I did actually estimate that the hair which is now gone was from a period of my life when I became a mama for the first time and fell pregnant for the second time.

    That’s a lot of joyful memories in there.

     

    tanya maher hair cut for little princess trust wig

    Also during that time, I experienced breastfeeding trauma, the difficult period of letting go of my restaurant (and all my staff) and the exciting redevelopment of it into a deli, followed by a lot of criticism.

    There’s also been a few dark days dealing with family stuff, my mum’s horrific accident and many many tears.

    Although the joy of those years outweigh the negativity, I still didn’t want to pass on any of my ‘stuff’ onto another going through their own journey, especially another undergoing a healing course...

    I energetically detached myself from the hair and filled it with love, vibrancy and a speedy recovery for brave amazing mini people and sent it off to Little Princess Trust again (below is a pic of me doing this in 2014) to be made into a wig for sick children that have lost their hair.

     

    tanya maher hair cut for little princess trust wig

     

    If you’re interested in the technique I used to transform the energy of my hair, it’s below...

    💚

    Affirmation I said out loud when holding the hair in my hands:

    “May the unwelcome energy and information contained within this hair dissolve and transform into Divine Healing Light.

    “May every memory of low frequency, dark and negative events contained within dissolve and replenish with Divine Healing Light.

    “May the frequency of every cell and emotional structure in every strand of this hair re-calibrate and rise to high frequency of Divine Powers and Miracles.

    “May each strand act like a magic wand that shines pure Divine Healing Light which touches and heals its new owner.

    “Thank you, so it is. Thank you, so it is. Thank you, so it is”

    💚
