Your Personal Tuning Fork – The Endocrine System
Live in rooms full of light
Avoid heavy food
Be moderate in the drinking of wine
Take massage, baths, exercise, and gymnastics
Fight insomnia with gentle rocking or the sound of running water
Change surroundings and take long journeys
Strictly avoid frightening ideas
Indulge in cheerful conversation and amusements
Listen to music.

The journey associated with the launch of my book Your Personal Tuning Fork –
my book launch Q1 7th July 2012
(The following is my speech at the launch of my book…designed to inspire anyone with a dream.)
The launch of my book – Your Personal Tuning Fork is more than just a celebration of a book… it is a celebration of a journey.
Indeed, I believe, those things we are passionate about, those things we aspire towards, those things navigated by our heart and soul… amount to a journey of sorts. And I believe, the journey needs to be celebrated as much as the end result.
Tonight I celebrate with you not just my book but my journey, my journey in getting here, this venue, Q1 for my book launch. The Q1 as the southern hemispheres tallest residential building symbolizes reaching the top and is symbolic of my journey upwards and how sweet the view is when we pursue that which our heart desires aligned to our personal truth and dreams.
My dream was to write…and write…and be published. And I am. And IT has been an upward climb, and the view is indeed sweet. I have fought just as hard to follow my dream as I have, the doubts that besieged me along the way, but I remained true to the integrity of my dream … I honoured it … pushed on, and I made it.
This book’s journey began as a bona fide course of direction as opposed to a wish 3 years ago. June 2009 I was sent a curve ball which altered the course of my life 360 degrees. The position I held for 7 years as a community/youth worker was made redundant due to lack of federal funding. That was the June, in the July I was informed I needed to find a new residence – that meant leaving the place I had made a home for 10 years. There were a couple of other endings during that time; it seemed the way in which I had lived was saying…no more. One morning in the August of 2009 I awoke and it seemed I no longer recognized the life I had lived.
SO I made a decision – to go for what I wanted. I chose to live the life I had dreamt about, hungered for and desired for many years… I wanted to be a full-time writer. It seems I have always written, as far back as I can remember, and I had consistently affirmed that I was a writer… but at that moment in time I wanted to step out of being a writer and step into being an author. So I grabbed the 3 completed manuscripts I had sitting in my home-office. I took a leap of faith – a huge leap of faith and stepped into making it happen. Trust me; I have become adept at leaps of faith …not only was I jobless, but homeless! The thing is, I believed in my ability to create the life I wanted and I believed in faith…my faith.
During this time I had struck up an online friendship with 2 international authors:
Jules Watson (author of the Dalriada Trilogy, The Raven Queen and the Swan Maiden) — “Deborah, be bold! You will only regret not being bold.”
Paulo Coelho (most widely read and one of the most influential authors of today, best known for the Alchemist) — “Deborah, nothing is impossible as long as you wish it with all your heart, your heart is the surest guide.”
SO I grabbed my 3 manuscripts and sent them to a couple of publishers. Your Personal Tuning Fork was picked up immediately. That was my sign. I knew I had chosen the right path and I wasted no time setting about to pro-actively walk on that path.
I took an enormous leap of faith – I didn’t go splat. Manifesting dreams or creating the life you want to live is not just about having a wish or dream, it starts with getting clear about that which you desire, then choosing to go for it and pro-actively doing something about it. Throw in huge handfuls of faith, remain focused on the dream, listen to your heart and persistently, consistently, vigilantly walk towards it.
“Affirm what you know to be true in your heart and you will create that reality.
Manifesting dreams or creating the life you want to live is not just about having a wish or dream,
it starts with getting clear about that which you desire, then choosing to go for it pro-actively –
it’s about taking your dream off the wish list and making it happen.
Remember to throw in huge handfuls of faith,
remain focused on the dream,
listen to your heart and persistently, consistently, vigilantly walk towards it,
I did – if I did – anyone can do it.”
Deborah K Bates
“Your Personal Tuning Fork: The Endocrine System is an enlightening, unique approach to the root causes of some of our most common health issues. Endocrine problems are often treated purely on a physical and medical level, but many people like myself find that it is not the magic solution they hoped for. In a clear, practical style, Bates shows us how to regain the power to nurture our own bodies by connecting the physical with the vast potential of the emotional and energetic realms. Truly fascinating and empowering!”
Jules Watson, international author of The Raven Queen

Thank you Deborah for writing such an informative and useful book and I am sure it will bring much health and happiness to many.”
Author Joylina Goodlings
I found Deborah’s book, Your Personal Tuning Fork – The Endocrine System easy to read and full of solutions to everyday symptoms. I recommend it as ready reference and daily tuning guide towards greater well-being. As a professional, I use and share techniques from this book with clients towards becoming their own health-master.

Health in a human being,
is the perfection of bodily organization,
and moral power.
the fullest expression of all the faculties and passions of man,
acting together in perfect harmony.
entire freedom from pain of body and
discordance of mind.
that condition in which,
man is the highest known expression of power and
goodness of his Maker.
When a man is perfect in his own nature,
body and soul,
perfect in their harmonious adoptions and action,
and living in perfect harmony with nature,
with his fellow man,
and with his God,
he may be said to be in a state of health.
