Name:  Chrissy
DOB:  31/10/78 (turned 38yrs old in 2016)
Location:  North Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia.

I grew up on yachts (which my father built) and thus at 13+14yrs old sailed from Brisbane (Australia) to London (England) - living in/travelling through a total of 14 countries.  It was the perfect age and I am worldly and wise as a result.  My teens + early 20's were all about finding the boundaries in life - and I found that they are set by myself!!  I learnt so much.  My late 20's + early 30's were all about educating myself.  I happily found my brain was quite maleable and achieved high marks at Lab Tech (TAFE) then Env Sci (Natural Resources + Pollution) at uni.  I worked as an environmental scientist for a while before leaving to attend honours + PhD.  I soon found it hard to "lock" myself into the one honours topic I had chosen (arsenic in acid-sulfate soil) and subsequently ceased that journey.  Searching for direction, I found myself returning to a permaculture community at Noosa (Australia) I had WWOOFed at some years earlier.  Here, a young WWOOFing couple needed to find a way home (back to USA) and decided to teach the standard PDC (Permaculture Design Certificate) to raise funds to do so.  I attended this course and quickly saw my new path - teaching permaculture.  This fit perfectly with my experience and knowledge as an environmental scientist.  I have been teaching the PDC ever since - it has been 1.5yrs.  I recently started a small business in the field and plan to expand out to teaching in the cities (South-East QLD, Australia) with a focus on assisting folks build a lifetstyle (including finances) around permaculture.  I see this as what the earth + human inhabitants need right now = new, environmentally friendly lifestyle (including finances) directions for the health of ourselves + our planet.

I found I have had to leave the relationship I was in as it no longer fit my values and beliefs....they have changed so much after my environmental pursuits!!  I can no longer be with someone who eats meat from factory farming, or accepts damaging chemicals as fertilizers.  I am now looking for either a man or possibly a couple (male + female).

I am searching for someone to share my journey with.  Living a permaculture/environmentally conscious lifestyle.  I love the outdoors & am spiritually inclined towards the natural elements.  I am creative and inspired.  I am working hard and changing that which I no longer wish to hold in my life - some of these are strongly ingrained (but I am achieving change everyday)!!  I envision teaching my children (which are not yet born) as I believe I could do better than the standard education system - although am aware that children also need social interaction.  Whether or not finances and lifestyle would allow me to home school I don't know - but it would be my utopia to do so (one I am working on bringing into existence).  I love to create utopia - this is what I do when I teach permaculture and when I live my life daily.  I believe in everything.  And can see if I need help there are always entheogens to help me connect (although as of yet I have not had the opportunity to seek such knowledge).  I am open to everything.  I am intelligent, a thinker, a doer.  I would love to be the other half, the support rock, the loving face & caring soul to love you deeply and meaningfully.  I am also experienced in love and know how to not just keep the spark alive - but to grow it as time moves us along.  Talking of time I believe it does not have to exist and lived many years this way - thus I feel I have not aged. 

My photos are a few years ago - however, I have not changed!!!  If this bothers you, please ask me to send an updated photo - I have a great one of the last PDC I taught.

I look forward to any queries and to get to know you. 

2 x photos of me at a Turkish restaurant (Brisbane, Australia).
1 x aura photo (download from end of message) taken in 2010.  This shows the angelic realm above me (identifiable as they permeate each layer of the aura - as opposed to individuals who have passed which do not, and hover in one layer only).

Hi Lyndell,

Are you interested in me personally?  If yes, I would like to get to know you more.  Yes, I would be willing to move for love.  However, I have a criminal history here in Australia which means they will not provide me a VISA to enter USA.  I have actually tried to fly to South America before with a plane change-over at LA airport.  Even though I was not entering USA, they still consider touching down at the airport to require a VISA...which I applied for and was denied.  This is the result of being truely free and when I was young, not being afraid to voice my beliefs.  For example, I was at the front of the "Legalize Marijuana" events...which we know now cures cancer (by going into each cell and turning the cells which are supposed to be off, or the cancer cells - OFF - stopping and curing cancer in it's tracks).  Anyway, so when I was young I did not understand the damage authority could do if they saw a person as a "trouble maker"....ie. someone who has a different view and is prepared to let those who need to know, know the view.  Thus, I used to get in a lot of trouble standing up for what I believed in.  I am proud to say I made a difference.  However have official scars to proove it - a criminal history.  I do not believe it is natural to border organisms, as they naturally move around the planet.  SO I don't believe in borders and separation of people and other organisms.  It is unnatural and wrong to get in nature's way.  We are only one species on the planet, and one fraction of the whole - and sadly a small number of "us" (ie. the human species) controls not only us, but all species and life on earth.  To do so stops the natural flow of life around Earth.  It is wrong.  We could meet in another place.  I have lived in 15 countries worldwide and know there are better places than the ones which are controlled so strongly.  Places more free and more abundant and more loving than both Australia or USA.  I would love to visit or move to one of these places.  Or of course we could meet in Australia.  If a person is personally responsible and have a self esteem that allows information and communication to flow in and out of the person's life - then it is quite safe to travel wherever you wish in the world.  Once a person enters a different culture, they can assess how to communicate and what is needed there.  It is quite easy and comes naturally once you are there.  If you would like to discuss more with me in private, you can email me on:   c.laurikainen@live.com.au

Namaste.
