After working in the hospitality and retail industry for years, in December 2015 Christine Farnham decided it was time to enjoy a Christmas on the other side of the counter. Little did she know by February 2016 she'd have started her own energetic healing business, Eternal Lotus, helping others to take their power back, recognise toxic patterns in their lives and empower them to heal themselves.
"I'd always enjoyed helping people and have always been intuitive," Christine said. In November 2015 she completed a Reiki 1 course for her own spiritual development. "The Reiki master said to me, "...when you go on to teach..." and I remember laughing and thinking there's no way I'm going to be teaching," she said.
Yet mere months later things snowballed and the business took off. Through Eternal Lotus Christine aims to show others how to help heal themselves, by identifying where they are struggling with stress, anxiety and overwhelm and how to bring about peace, clarity and change into their everyday life. "How to have that inner spark that gives them joy and genuinely comes from within," she said.
An intuitive energetic healer, Christine does this via a number of techniques including ThetaHealing® Technique, a modality which puts the client into a theta brain wave state to allow a stronger connection to give intuitive readings and identify physical issues and their underlying causes.

She is also a Reiki master and practitioner, so she teaches this practice and incorporates it into her offerings. Additionally Christine conducts meditations and uses doTERRA essential oils to help people heal naturally through the gifts of the earth. She runs regular inspirational workshops and said she loves "planting seeds and watching them grow".
From February 15-22, 2020, Christine and around 30 other facilitators will be part of a special retreat, the Ultimate Girls Week Away, on Plantation Island, Fiji. "It's for women who are in need of and want to give themselves the ultimate treat, for inspiration, connection and the chance to meet like-minded people and make new friendships." Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Pray, Love fame is among the expert facilitators holding workshops, healing hubs and events throughout the week.
The Ultimate Girls Week Away will host 300 women who have answered their own calling and said 'yes' to themselves. Christine is offering a chance to go into a draw to win a 60 minute energetic session over the phone or in person with her worth $220. All you need to do is fill out the application form and state her name in the section which asks 'how did you find out about the retreat?'
Eternal Lotus has developed significantly over the past four years. "I started out offering relaxing massage and as I have grown and evolved so has the business," Christine said. "I'm so excited for moving forward into the future. As I continue to grow and expand I get to help and inspire more people along the way."
