Justin Moikeha Asar grew up in the magical Pacific islands of Vanuatu. He views each day as a lifetime, seeing physicality as our ultimate gift and he encourages the embrace of Truth, Unity and Oneness through the natural cycles.Teaching spirituality throughout Australia and around the world, Justin’s firm physical grounding in Naturopathy, High Magic, the Druid principles, and Hawaiian, Egyptian and Atlantian spirituality is a balanced dance with his intimate embrace of the higher celestial realms as a keeper of the Pleiadian Liquid Light Technologies and an aspect of the Brotherhood of Light on Earth. Recently, Justin stepped into his known birth purpose as the seeding member of the Atlantian Hierarchy in preparation for its externalization to the world. Over the past 15 years, through the teachings of the ‘Spirit of Geburah,’ a master Ruby gifted from a Tibetan monastery, Justin has re-birthed the Liquid Crystals into the world, as an Atlantian Crystal Healing modality.So far, Justin has become fluent in the Atlantian language both spoken and written, he has re-united the mineral kingdom, restoring its ancient sacred order. His work has led to the true recognition of the Master Crystal Devas by name and symbol and revealed the 11 ancient Atlantian cities. It has also assigned the Gods, Goddesses, Angels, Ascended Masters, Tarot, Tree of Life, Animals, Oils, Plants, and even the Stars back to the Crystals of Earth. The Liquid Crystals has quickly become the most advanced and holistic crystalline modality on Earth, offering the true Atlantian Way of Oneness. Realized and guided from birth, Justin has deliberately withheld much of his work to avoid the inevitable classifications offered by the masses that would block his personal growth. However, he is now opening the doors and the Atlantian Way will become more available so we may live in harmony on our new Planet.More information on Justin’s work, meditations, courses and activations is available through the Liquid Crystals website: www.theliquidcrystals.com, or by visiting ‘The Liquid Crystals’ Facebook page where many crystalline souls gather.

Cordelia Francesca Brabbs is a Magical Mentor for conscious and creative people who want to see what’s really possible when they unlock their gifts and live from their magic.
Cordelia works mainly with the Diamond Light, pure Source energy that helps people release core wounds, patterns and energetic contracts that limit them. During these sessions she helps people get rewired and recoded on a cellular, DNA and genetic level to fulfil their divine potential and realign to their true state of abundance and joy.
For as long as she can remember, Cordelia has believed in the magical realms and felt a close connection with the unicorns, fairies, mermaids and dragons. She grew up in the countryside in the North of England, and would often be found reading Enid Blyton’s magical books, perched in the branches of an apple tree, dreaming of adventures to magical lands.
After going through a dark night of the soul in her late teens and early twenties, Cordelia’s spiritual awakening in 2001 led her to train in various healing, manifesting and coaching modalities (including Unicorn Light healing). She discovered her natural gift for working with energy, holding space for vibrational upgrades, receiving intuitive insights, and seeing people’s soul essence.
She soon became the author of "Goddess Power Pack", and spent nine months living in Avalon, serving as a Melissa in the Glastonbury Goddess Temple, and holding retreats for women and teens. In 2010 Cordelia’s love of whales and dolphins led her to co-found Women for Whales, a conscious collective designed to peacefully raise awareness for cetacean protection. Since 2011 she has run her online classes and client retreats from beautiful locations around the world, travelling to wherever her soul calls her to be. Her recent destinations include Hawaii, French Polynesia, France, Italy and Avalon.

Normally her paintings are based in either watercolour or acrylics on paper, to which she also adds inks, pencil, pastels, and even digital elements to create whatever effect she desires.“As an artist, I paint because of a true, driving need to create beauty and magic. It is an inner need which I fulfill by putting brush to paper. But there is no magic there until it is shared, no joy to be found in the forms and colours until it is seen by another. So I want to thank you, for looking upon my artwork and allowing its magic to become real, for making the image I have captured in paint and pencil come to life in your eyes and mind. I hope that my artwork can be an inspiration to you”.Selina’s artwork is featured in the Lucy Cavendish sets 'Oracle of the Mermaids', 'Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle' and 'Oracle of the Dragonfae'.www.selinafenech.com

Rassouli is known in the art world for his stunning and insightful artworks. He is an artist of life, one who lives and expresses whatever he does from his heart. He describes himself as an ogler and a libertine, as one who sees beneath the surface, one who is free to express what he sees and feels and imagines! Whoever you thought he was yesterday, you can be sure he will bring something fresh and new to today, and he will surely come up with something fun for tomorrow.
Rassouli has inspired, invited, and encouraged creativity around the world through a process he calls Fusionart, which activates the creative power of the heart, expressing the wonder and the sensual beauty of the soul. He speaks about creativity in person, in his retreats, through articles and books and talks to groups, on the radio, in videos, and in films, and nowhere does he do it more magically than through his paintings.
Rassouli throws rules to the wind and dives into the moment and savors it, and his excitement for the process affects and stimulates everyone around him to do the same! He paints with rags, with his hands, and uses his favorite brushes when he feels moved to enhance what is happening on the canvas. He usually begins with a canvas primed with black paint and brings the light of vision to it, developing a relationship with the emerging image as he progresses.
Rassouli is presently living in Southern California to paint beauty, create inventive and original architectural designs, write books and articles and offer retreats to develop creativityin people of all ages and abilities around the world. Rassouli is dedicated to this vision and greatly excited about the value of creativity in changing lives. He is always searching for new ways to express this and invite every heart to discover their own unique ways of sharing.

Yuehui has a strong emotional connection to his works and describes how he allows the idea or concept to flow from his mind when he is most inspired, often coming back to a work at different stages before completion. He attaches a great deal of importance to the details in his paintings as he feels that an accurate depiction of seemingly trivial details is what gives life and a sense of ‘reality’ to his paintings.
