About Maria Tiffin
Who am I?
I'm a spiritual being having a physical experience. I'm also a widow, mother, grandmother... retired accountant, teacher, healer... and author of "The Guide to SMART Thinking", subtitled "How to Develop the Mindset and Skills for Everyday Problem Solving".
This transformational ebook is available on this website at the introductory price of only $7.70. Get your copy today - or if you prefer to try before you buy, you may download Chapter 1 for free.
Here's a short extract from the book, relevant to this 'About me' section:
"I've always been interested in early education, influenced no doubt by my own positive experiences. This is partly as a result of a love of reading nurtured and encouraged by my mom Vicencia, a prolific reader. From my dad Basilio I inherited the enjoyment of puzzles, games and Portuguese history (including the intricacies of our family tree - I'm my own second cousin once removed, and I have a computer printout to prove it!). Finally, my passion for teaching and bringing about informed enlightenment I learnt from my husband Ted."
My life purpose? To use my curiosity, sense of fun and adventurous spirit to help and motivate others to reach their potential and be joyful.
For me it's all about energy...
I make water fountains because I love playing with water but also because the flowing water releases negative ions and creates a positive energy flow.
I'm a Jikiden Reiki practitioner who used EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) as a healing tool to unblock areas of entrapped negative emotions and restore balance to the subtle energy system. Recently, though, my focus changed to the Domancic Method of bioenergy healing. Please refer to my healing page on this website for more information.
And now I surround myself with orgonite, that magickal substance that transmutes energy and enables life to thrive as it was intended.
How I found orgonite... or did orgonite find me?
A few years back I was a consultant for an international company, a distributor of various excellent products that counteract the energy-depleting effects of electromagnetic radiation. I kept up to date with the findings of research scientists (those who were not beholden to the wireless industry, that is) and was focused on spreading the word about how to mitigate the health hazards of electropollution. Unfortunately the company pulled out of South Africa.
And so I Googled for an alternative and found... ta da... orgonite!
It is said that when one door closes, another opens. Orgonite is the door that opened. A door that has led to a whole new world for me of making and gifting orgonite.
I think I've become addicted to orgonite. I love working on the pieces, being surrounded by the stuff, planning new items. I also love talking to people about its awesome properties.
And it's humbling yet gratifying that my orgonite creations have gone to so many parts of the world - the States, Japan, Bahrain, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Barbados, Portugal, Australia, Mexico, Britain, Turkey, Switzerland, Germany, Ireland, Thailand, Singapore, the Isle of Man, Romania, Hungary, Uganda and of course, South Africa - and are working continuously to restore energetic balance and bring about healing.

I regularly post comments, pics and links on my orgonite page on Facebook. Have a look-see and please like my page if you find it interesting.
Angels are special
Each angel contains a copper-wrapped quartz crystal plus chips of rose quartz, chrysoprase and amethyst. Available in a wide range of muted colours, the angels are about 7.5cm high and 9cm wide.
Price: R140 each
Bodyguard Buttons are electromagnetic radiation shields that may be used not only on cell phones but also on any devices that emit EMF and EMR such as cordless phones, hairdryers, vacuum cleaners and game consoles.
The buttons contain fine aluminium shavings, bronze and copper powder, powdered kyanite, pyrite and unakite, and chips of quartz crystal, rose quartz, chrysoprase, amethyst and black tourmaline.
The price of the buttons is R65 each.
I also offer an orgonite Cell Charm that may be looped onto a cell phone, bag, keyring, rearview mirror, belt etc. The materials used in these charms are identical to those in the Bodyguard Buttons.
The Cell Charms are available at R75 each.
I discount field orgonite (TowerBusters) for quantity. TBs are rough-and-ready pieces mostly used outside the home, although they are very effective inside but not attractive enough to be put on display!
My new standard pieces, made in black or white, now contain unakite, a stone with properties very like orgonite!  Unakite is a balancing and grounding stone that promotes a calming energy, lifts depression, relieves stress and insomnia, protects against electromagnetic radiation and boosts healthy plant growth.
In addition, unakite is recommended for use by pregnant women, helps to release emotional blockages and may trigger psychic vision.

TBs are very versatile orgonite items. Originally designed to clear the electromagnetic radiation emitting from cell phone towers, TBs are also perfect for promoting plant growth, creating a protective ring around your home and shielding you from EMF in your home (one per average sized room). Place one in your fridge, one close to your electrical distribution board and one at the water inlet to your home, as well.
I shall not be trading at markets for the foreseeable future.
