If Sal were still with us we'd be celebrating her 40th birthday today - and how!!! We'd already begun making plans in 2016 for four days and nights of festivities at home, karaoke and entertainment at the local hall and with adventures planned to explore our favourite Dorrigo rainforests, rivers and waterfalls.
I was privileged to call Sal my friend for ten years from when we first connected on good old Facebook and then in person in Melbourne on 11:11:11 and both being Pisces people we had many fabulous birthdays within the same week together. What made our friendship so close was an ancient cosmic connection and an intense interest in what made the other tick. We held the space for each other's growth and had one very long continuous conversation for ten years and beyond.
I believe all people experience a unique version of another determined by their level of interest, presence, projections and engagement with them so by extrapolation there were thousands of Sallys. The Sally I knew was exceptionally courageous, creative, kind, generous, wise, empathic, funny, joyful, exuberant, forgiving, visionary, and she was an incredibly gifted healer. She was in her final studies at Endeavour College, and as a trained naturopath, massage therapist and herbalist had plans to establish a new and entirely original Wellness Centre employing all manner of modalities.
Please enjoy the slideshow below. I had beautiful memories creating it to honour Sally's 40th and to give you a glimpse of the Sally I knew.

Here are a few snippets from Sally's Facebook Timeline
I invite you to scroll down her wall for a glimpse of this remarkable woman who crafted a full and active life in her short 38 years on Earth. Sal began posting on Facebook in 2008, so there are hundreds of posts and numerous photos for you to explore if you wish.
21.6.2016 Sal wrote 'To be wild is to live in full expression of the Self... the 'I' ... to live Innately, Intuitively, Instinctively, Imaginatively, Inherently, Intrinsically, and Indigenously ~.'
30.6.2016 'There's no place like home.'
20.12.2016 'Today is a *Distinctive* day :) I just received my grades for last semester -I am so happy and grateful that I have completed another year... 3.5 down, 1 to go! Congratulations to my colleagues receiving their results today, we made it.'
3.2.2017 'So far the synchronicities have been profound this new year. Yesterday I heard black cockatoos and thought how I'd never seen a black cockatoo feather and how amazing it would be to find one. Well, one found me this morning right on my very path on my way to our Hut! ...the power of thoughts. High magic!'
I want to take this opportunity to tell you that this may be the last public post I'll make of my continuing communications with Sal in Spirit. We gave ourselves a year to be public, and I have posted a great deal to honour her life and to assist in our grieving.
I've also shared many of my methods of connecting with Sal in The Afterlife in the hope that my techniques may have comforted and assisted with your connections with loved ones who have passed. Although now going private, I'll always continue to welcome your photos and stories of Our Sally Sunflower because I love receiving them. Thank you Sal, it was a sensational journey and we brought out the best in each other.
It's time for me to gently let go and enable Sal to fully explore the multi-verses and her Unlimited
I AM. 'Learning from the best!' she says.
I'm in the process of taking my life on an entirely new trajectory which I'll happily reveal when I have defined the changes more thoroughly and fully absorbed the exciting new possibilities taking shape.
Sal's final message to us is a question:
‘What are you doing with the supreme gift of having a physical body and human life?’
