Our Vision: A New Way to Co-Create with our Community


ur first Issue’s editorial introduction “New Hopes – New Beginnings” shared some insights of one of the many new facets of the great adventure we call the Body Soul & Spirit – this publication. In this issue, we’d like to share more of our vision and mission in creating the Body Soul & Spirit Magazine. In addition to very affordable advertising rates, we offer our resource directory and event calendar listings section for a nominal fee that covers the printing and production, and thereby, provide a opportunity to share what you offer at a rate we hope is affordable for EVERYONE! We also offer “content for cost”! Although this generated some initial criticism, many are starting to understand how this both gives them a new opportunity to let people know more about their particular expertise by sharing it with others, and gain exposure in a way that advertisements cannot. We offer our editorial partners complete creative license to co-create your place in our publication with us – From starting your own health cooking feature, a section on yoga, conscious relationships, parenting indigo children, developing your intuition, energetic healing – we invite you to share your passions with our readers. Finally, we encourage EVERYONE to subscribe for FREE, just cover the cost of printing and handling (about $2.00 per issue). This allows us to continuously increase how many copies we print and distribute without increase the cost to our advertisers and content providers! In addition, with our new member loyalty reward card (to be issued in the September 1, expo edition) we will also pass on many times the value of subscribing by offering instant discounts for admission and special discounts from participating exhibitors at our all our future expos. These concepts, although simple - we believe will allow us to all co-create something wonderful. We invite YOU to share in the adventure and vision of building a national publication, directory and resource with us! As always we are appreciative and grateful, and invite you to join us in co-creating something wonderful. You are a big part of what makes this adventure possible. Your support, feedback, and participation is the fuel that feeds and propels this wonderful adventure we share together. — Chandler Stephon Armstrong, editor Body Soul & Spirit Magazine

tween Africa, Greece, Australia and the Himalayas, that I visited every country on the planet that I had ever dreamed of visiting. And I’ll never forget the morning, having breakfast in the Regent Hotel in Kowloon, Hong Kong, when I looked up from over my coffee, through the two story plate glass windows that surrounded me, and saw the exact same view of Hong Kong Island that I had cut and pasted into my little scrapbook just two years earlier. Of course, I could share a lot of other stories like that one, as well as a few sad ones, all illustrating how my thoughts have unfailingly become the things and events of my life, but you know who else could do that, right? You. Because it is an immutable law that governs all of our lives, whether we know about it or not. To illustrate: What happens when someone throws a ball into the air? Right! It comes back down. Why? Because it has to, it’s the law! Now, in order for that ball to come back down to earth, does it matter who threw it? How old they think they are, or how young they really are? Where or if they went to college? How popular or good looking they are? No. Nothing matters once they throw that ball, because as it leaves their finger tips, the Universe and its principles take over. And that’s exactly what happens once you choose your thoughts, so choose them wisely. Thoughts become things! Whether you’re visualizing, or just day dreaming; thinking the good thoughts, or worrying on your way to work. Recognize this principle. Understand its existence in your life. Then you can begin using it, deliberately turning your wishes into reality and living the life of your dreams. Because whatever it is that you most want, truly, it lies only a thought away. ◆

Chakra’s relate to energy points and the physical being


here are seven main chakras in our body. These energy centers are aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakras associated with a certain color, function and distinguishing characteristic. Chakras are analyzed based on the individual shape and vibrancy. Round, circular chakras denote a balanced energy system, while non circular or blurred chakras show an imbalance in your aura centers. The seven chakras aligned in our bodies, provide insight on the following areas of our lives: First Chakra: Root-Red This chakra is the energy of the physical plane and material reality. It is the centre of manifestation and the place from which passion flows: the source of power and ego development Second Chakra: Navel-Orange The colour of this chakra reflects creativity, sociability, emotional life and sexuality.

Life Activation & Empower Thyself A Journey to Self Empowerment

By Dietmar Dombkowski


here do I begin? Who I am? That was a point in my life where I was at a standstill, emotionally, mentally and especially spiritually. Until then, life was good in every way, I thought. There was a hunger, a craving for more, but in a different way. For the most part of my life I have studied shamanism, was attracted to the North American Native traditions, mythology and healing arts. I worked and studied with several medicine people and healers throughout the continent. In the meantime the “perfect life” around me crumbled like a card house. Why was this happening to me? What did I do to deserve this? And more of these kinds of questions popped up. At the same time the cravings for the unknown intensified. A profound feeling of emptiness surrounded my being. I had no sense of life purpose, just an endless feeling of void. In my search for fulfillment I stumbled upon a phrase: Where do I begin? Within a couple of days I had consumed all information available about the Modern Mystery School which stated this phrase on their compelling website.

Several weeks later after intense research, I contacted the Modern Mystery School (MMS) and two days later I was sitting in a chair having a Life Activation (formerly DNA Activation) facilitated by an certified practitioner of the Modern Mystery School. I never heard about this modality before, but it made sense to have it done after I had been informed by the practitioner and had read the flyer. For me, the Life Activation was transformative. This process provided me with new energy, hope and a new sense of connection I needed. The Life Activation gave me the grounding and provided me with the tools I needed in order to manifest happiness and personal growth in my life. Through this process, I was able to reconnect with my authentic self. I felt I was renewed, energized and instilled with both hope and direction. “What is the next step?” I asked the practitioner. My hunger for more knowledge was still present in my soul. “The next step would be to become an Adept and be initiated into the Great Brother and Sisterhood of Light”, the person replied. I decided to invest into myself and signed up for the Empower Thyself Workshop.

Canada’s Holistic Wellness

Well, as a light worker it “blew my socks off” energetically and it wasn’t because of the information provided in this two-day workshop, it was because of the new and profound connection to my heart and the energy flow out to my fellow man and women. I felt as though I was empowered in my ability to make positive life decisions, I began to move with intention, and the tools soon began to fall into place to ensure success and happiness. The MMS has developed a wonderful curriculum and provides Academies for every kind of seeker. It allows people from all walks of life to come in and learn ancient teachings that can be applied in these modern and changing times. I feel I was given a big shake and it has ignited that spark of life I was looking for. It changed my life and I was able to step into my Power again. ◆ Dietmar Dombkowski is a certified Teacher and Guide with the Modern Mystery School as well as Reiki Master-Teacher offering Reiki, Life Activations and Energy Balancing,etc..

he first attempt in the world to use Scared Scalar Energy to raise the vibration of the entire show, was a success… Of the 424 entries for the free Protection Cube, 379 said the energy was Uplifting, an amazing success. Congratulations to Deanna of Calgary, the Winner of the Protection Cube in this spring’s trade shows. For those who dropped by our booth, a deep loving heartfelt Thank You for making the introduction of this new technology a success. Transformation in action “At the Calgary Body, Soul, Spirit Expo. I had the privilege and opportunity to be introduced to a New technology on the planet. The Rejuvenation VAHS is far beyond any experience I have had in regards to accessing a deep inner

connection to the truth of mine own being. When the session was completed (all told 45 about min.) I had and have a much deeper connection with my self. Something deep inside settled and softened, allowing me to feel a deep sense of completion and peace. The Heavens opened up and graced me with a new life. I am now optimistic about the future of Man. We just have a knowing that something isn’t quite right, but to figure it all out, ahhh.. Where does one start? And once one does start, when does it end? It seems to me this technology addresses this conundrum in a beautiful fashion. RELEASE THE STRESSES THAT ARE AFFECTING US (Body, Mind and Spirit.) WHEN OUR STRESSES ARE ADDRESSED, WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RELAX, TO BE NATURAL AND TRUE, AND TO SIMPLY BE

OURSELVES. I tell you the Gates of Grace are open for Mankind. The key to accessing this Grace is willingness. May you listen to your Heart and be open to the gentle, easy path. ‘Blessings for One... Blessings for All’. May you be Free to be That which you are in Truth.” — Susan Collip, Olds, Alberta The experience was so deep and profound that Susan volunteered to work the Grande Prairie show 5 days later. (Wow).

Facing Your Soul… in the Mirror By Carole Friesen

Before and After

The Magic of Body Mind Communication


ive me 5 minutes with anyone and I can tell you more about their character than a 10-page résumé. I have “read” thousands of people who tell me I know more about them in a few minutes than their spouse, family or friends ever have. Anyone can do what I do by simply learning the Art of Face Reading. I have trained hundred’s of people in a oneday workshop, the step-by-step process of learning this wisdom. Have you ever had a gut feeling about someone? Have you ever asked yourself what is this person truly like? Well, we all read people at some level. Unconsciously, we all read faces. How would you like to read faces consciously? The Art of Reading Faces gives you the tangible tools to recognize a person’s true character. Face reading, like body language, gives you a leading edge in unspoken communication. This is one of the most powerful ways of getting to know yourself and others in all your relationships. The first thing I do in Face Reading is ‘cut’ the persons head off and set it on a table. Don’t take me literally!!! Does the head stand square and steadfast or does it roll around like a ball? The first impression you get of a person is the most important. What is the overall structure and the most prominent feature that jumps out at you? For example, the face shape may be square and practical, the oval maybe sensitive and flexible, the rectangular maybe steadfast and ambitious, or the round face maybe easygoing and willing to please. A person’s most prominent feature may be their warm, large brown eyes, a prominent nose that may be a bit ‘nosey’, or thin, tight lips may find life ‘tastes some what bitter’. At this point, start to notice the left and right sides of the face. Are they in balance? How is the left masculine analytical mind working with the right feminine creative mind? Most people have an imbalance which shows me that there is inner conflict that needs to be resolved. The nose ‘knows’! The nose knows it all! It shows how they have learned to

project their personal identity. Are they stable and steadfast, sharp and exacting, or prominent and outgoing? The nose points to honesty, dependability, self-confidence or strength. Wow, now the lips! Do they have full ‘Hot Lips’ like Marilyn Monroe or are they pursed and tight showing a holding back of their sensual expression. The degree of creativity, intuition and sexual appeal is shown in the top lip and the vocal expression is shown in the bottom lip. You will be amazed at the accuracy of Face Reading. Face Reading is our original form of communication. As babies, we do it instinctually, as adults we need to get out of our intellectual minds and learn it all over again.

Discovering your Power Animals and having fun learning about them By Richard Sykes


o many people ask what is a power animal and how do you find out which one is yours and is there just one or many? These are very good questions. Answers: A power animal is an animal that you keep seeing like a hawk or a raven, even a as something like a lady bug. We all need to be aware of what we see and what keeps showing up in our lives and dreams on a repetitive basis. You see each animal has a different kind of meaning and if you don’t know what that animal means there are a few books out there to help you to find the meaning of each animal or mammal and insect. There are books by Ted Andrews I would like to recommend to you, these are very informative books to help and guide you along your journey on many different levels from the physical to the spiritual . All animals used to speak just like us,

without the improper use of language, something we all can learn from, and they still speak in what we call the Shamanic world. The animals will come and visit you in a dream and may even talk to you and give you a message or the answer you have been searching for. Please do your best to listen when they do show themselves and talk to you, because it is very important. There is always some kind of message. Do your best to read between the lines of what they are saying to you. When an animal or animals shows themselves repetitively find out represents and means to you. Most certainly there is a power animal for you and will stay with

you for life, connecting with it always, and calling on its energy or to help you in a particular situation. The next excerpt I will talk about how some animals react to things like the weather for example. ◆ Richard Sykes - Native name Buffalo Heart Metis Nation Pipe carrier

A love story with Tarot Cards By Norma Cowie


began a journey 45 years ago, November 6 1964. I began my love affair with my Tarot Cards. Little did I know by going to this Tarot Card Reading class how my life would change. How over the years I would come to understand human nature and the spiritual pathway of life and most of all what a great friend my 78 Tarot Cards would become. I did not dream that I was going to be finding a companion to walk the pathway of life. That I would be on radio, a regular on a T.V. show, host my own cable T.V. show, write three books on the subject, create a DVD, and travel speaking at Tarot Conferences. No, I had no idea; I was just going to learn about Tarot Cards. At the time I began studying I had no idea what Tarot Cards were, but I had heard Mr. Wm. Balderstone speaking about them and I decided to go and learn more. I studied for three years. Mr. Balderstone said he had a new way of reading Tarot and he did. Years later when I went to have my first book published, no one would publish it because “it was not like any other book”. Therefore, I self published Tarot for Successful Living and have continued to do so for all my other books. I learned how to read Tarot Cards not by memorizing them, but learning how to ‘read’ them to follow where your eye goes and most importantly how to link one symbol to another to make a story. I also learned two major differences from the traditional way of reading. First was not to use reversals and the second was that court cards were attitudes not people. By not using reversals I learned to listen to what the symbol was telling me I would ‘read’ the card. I have found the card tells me what I need to know. I do not have to remember what a specific card means. No one would think when you first look at a deck of Tarot Cards how one could become attached to these 78 paper cards. As you first look through them, all you see is different pictures, but as you study them and especially when you learn to read them for yourself, a whole world opens up. It is no wonder these 78 Tarot Cards have been called the “unbound book of wisdom”. Tarot breaks the 78 symbols into two sections, the 22 Higher Arcana (Arcana meaning secret) and 56 Lower Arcana. The 22 Higher Arcana symbols are more complex in their symbology and speak to the spiritual steps we make in life. The 56 Lower Arcana 16 • sUMMER/FALL 2010

are more simple pictures and break down into four suits. The Wands represent your thinking, Cups your feelings, Swords the problems and challenges and Pentacles the day to day routine of your life. Each suit goes from number one through ten, with a page, knight, queen and king (the court cards). Sixteen cards per suit. I have great admiration for the creators of the deck I have used since the beginning 45 years ago. Arthur Edward Waite and Pamela Coleman Smith created the deck over 100 years ago. They were both members of the Order of the Golden Dawn, a mystery school in London. The artist Pamela Coleman Smith has historically been overlooked until recent years. She died penniless, but her artwork has continued on. Today the deck is known as the Rider Waite Deck. The Universal Deck and the Radiant Rider Waite Deck also use the same symbology as the two originals created. But there are now hundreds of different Tarot Card decks out there with all manner of symbology within them. Before Waite/Coleman Smith created their deck you would have to use your memory because the Lower Arcana was represented as one Wand, or three cups or five swords or ten pentacles on a page. They drew the 56 Lower Arcana Cards in picture form. Each card told a story and you did not have to memorize it. Now there were pictures, and pictures tell stories, and it was the stories that these 78 picture cards told, that I fell in love with. Whether reading Tarot Cards for myself or others there were countless stories to be told. The journey of life unfolded before me whenever I put the cards out. When I look back over these last 45 years and think of the journey they and I have done as I learned many other metaphysical topics, they have been my companion. I would learn something new, come back and look and there it was before me. Yes, Arthur Edward Waite and Pamela Coleman Smith knew over 100 years ago what made mankind tick, how we as humans respond and what life is made of. I love what I have learned. My love of these 78 Tarot Cards continues and may it continue for another 45 years. ◆ Norma Cowie is a Psychic Life Consultant who has studied metaphysics for 45 years.

Magdalena’s Message Ascension to Live By Virgina Ellen


scension is the process of living fully. You cannot ascend a dying body. The question is how do you live fully? I say to you, call home life to be lived. Call home all of the moments you denied yourself life. If you had lived each lifetime fully you would not be on the karmic wheel. Ascension comes through the willingness to live. One reason that you are dying off is because you have been shut off from your own life force energies. When you begin to deeply feel you begin to live and ascend. Call home all of the past moments that you did not feel, the moments you denied yourself life. When you begin to feel these moments, you begin to live and the cells awaken to new life. They will awaken to receive life force energies. This is how the body rejuvenates. Calling Home the Past Moments Close your eyes and come within. Speak from your emotions to the Mother Energy.

Beloved Mother I call home my fear of not being able to make it. I call home my fear of not being able to do what I want to do with my life. I call home my fear of never getting to really live and have what I want. I give these fears to you my Beloved Mother to be transformed by your love. Sound the sound mystical sound of transformation. – Amenyn

As you activate each of your Great Sacred Seals, it will send juices of electrical currents of energy to every cell. Each Sacred Seal has many electrical currents and secretions of passion, life energy, sensual energy, divine power, will, desire, security, trust, acceptance, love, joy, sexual energy and many more. These energies will be released from the Sacred Seals and sent throughout the body. The body will be ascending its vibration and it will be illuminated with Sacred Energy and Christ Consciousness. Blessings on your Ascension, Magdalena ◆ Channeled by Virginia Ellen •

Video). We created a “Business Revitalization Zone” (BRZ) and named the district “The Marda Loop” so that we could create a “small town” atmosphere in the larger city. As founder and Chairman, I set out to attract small business and shops and pubs that I hoped would move in, creating a much more vibrant shopping district. A community “living room” where people could get out of their houses and mix and mingle and meet at night - a community, where people could get to know your name. Few people believed me when I said it was possible at the beginning…but our “guineapig” BRZ, along with others that sprang up later, started making a lot of headway. It soon became clear that the BRZ models we were pioneering were working - revitalizing small communities right across the Province. As “Mayor of Marda Loop”, I was pushed into politics, where I continued promoting what I thought was common sense but turned out to be leading-edge ideas on all kinds of fronts. My track record ( is filled with

initiatives that achieved international awards and successes that I am very proud of. I am running for Mayor of Calgary now. Among other things I want to step up our initiatives to continue to create better, healthier, friendlier, safer, more inclusive and vibrant communities, right across this whole City. I want this whole City to become a CRZ (Community Revitalization Zone). I want to roll out the successful models that I helped pioneer in Marda Loop, Victoria Park and elsewhere, to create the kind of close-kit, caring communities that I know can be created and that I know work much better for the people who live in them. First we build our City’s – and then, they build us, indeed. We have built this City so far, mostly just to make money….based on Albertans fears of financial insecurity. In chasing money all the time though, I wonder if we have forgotten how to build true wealth? When it comes to building Calgary, I say we must always remember who we are building this City for, and why. It’s just good common sense to say…People first. ◆

AstroVolution - Awakening through Astrology by Chandler Armstrong

“It is when astrology permits us to provide a glimpse of who we are beyond the world of form that we began to find its true value as a tool for awakening. The universe is always “perfect”, and both chaos and coincidence are only illusions created out of our limited perspectives! The “label” I given to this use of astrology as a tool of awakening to the one life is “Astrovolution”. In the following column you will find a practical interpretation for each sign, but also a brief hint as to what may be unfolding on your inner journey when you use it as tool for contemplation. I’ve also started posting this column as well as more astrological insight at◆

June 15 to September 1, 2010 ✪ Aries (March 21- April 19)

Aries, this is a time of transformation, planning of further activity and re-thinking of your material values. You may also find yourself resuming old relations and striking up new business acquaintances. It may be unwise to take risks and get involved in risky ventures, no matter how tempting and profitable they look, avoid getting ahead of your self. You are correct if you are sensing an impending major new cycle of expansion and growth, but rushing in before you’re ready can diminish the success that will come from waiting for the right time. Going inward and learning to be content and thankful for each moment and trusting that all will unfold as it should, can be a profound spiritual practice right now.

✪ Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you may find it necessary to restore the relations, reconcile those who had quarreled. Some estrangement in family and strained relations with parents are possible, especially in mid-summer. An opportunity to join new groups or get involved with a cause or work within an organization toward the common good is also a possibility right now. Learning to serve others without needing outer validation can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall. ✪ Gemini (May 21 - June 20) Gemini, you may find yourself in situations where you have to choose between accepting more responsibility and setting new boundaries. It’s also possible that this may involve work or helping those younger or less experienced. Learning to express yourself and your creativity can also get you noticed over the next few months, and you will find that you have more discipline and focus than usual. Learning to trust your inner knowing, and allow your authentic creative self flow and unfold without allowing others expectations or opinions to limit your self-expression can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall. ✪ Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Cancer, this is in a new phase in the unfoldment of your authentic self and you may find yourself beginning to feel restless and dissatisfied with any routine or "status quo" connected to the current expression of self. Your consciousness regarding these parts of yourselves and your lives is accelerated to the point that others might consider your actions (and reactions) hasty or rebellious. This may bring some career changes or aspirations that you have not explored to the surface. Learning to surrender and find balance between your inner purposes with your outer purpose can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall.

✪ Leo (July 23 - August 23) Leo, you may feel a tremendous need for freedom and the expansion of self which may manifest in travel, new areas of study, and cultivating greater awareness. However, you must also temper this with duties, responsibilities and common sense in regards to the financial implications of acting on such impulses. Cultivating a deep inner contentment with who you are and a knowing that your true freedom comes from within can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall.

the past. It's a time of more spontaneous expression. This is a playful, somewhat eccentric, period. Casual relationships that have grown stale may be left behind now as you grow impatient with those who don’t share your sense of adventure. You may also attract unusual new friends, romances or romantic partners into your life during this cycle. Learning to live each moment as if it has never been experienced before allows you to experience new possibilities in all areas of your life and can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall.

✪ Virgo (August 24 - September 22) Virgo, you may find that your heavy workload will cause family arguments, no matter how hard you try to prove that you work to provide for your family, your reasons will likely do little to help the situation. In the second half of the 2010 year some difficulties, connected with education and upbringing of children, may occur. Learning to see the impermanence of your outer situation allows you to see the larger picture and sort out what is truly important and can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall.

✪ Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) Capricorn, finding a balance between security and impulse for growth may find the need to look for a new job and search for new sources of income during the summer. You also may have a greater than normal urge to waste money - but do not indulge in it! Reasonable cost saving and thorough planning will guarantee your success. Learning to let go of unrealistic expectations for yourself and focusing on what is truly important can be an important part of your spiritual growth this summer and fall.

✪ Libra (September 23-October 22) Libra, you may notice that close relationships are an area of attention. Some relationships may end, because they demand more than they are worth. Even strong relationships are likely to be redefined. Remembering that you choose every relationship as well as how they affect you is important right now! Cultivating an objective awareness to how you perceive and react to others in your life helps you to understand parts of yourself you may not be willing to own. Often it’s not others, but ourselves that we may not be happy with. Learning to recognize the oneness and divinity of everyone in your life and how we are ultimately all on the same journey can be a profound spiritual practice this summer and fall. ✪ Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio, you may find yourself in a tug of war between a tremendous desire to move forward, asserting yourself in the quest of what you desire, while at the same time being held back by the past. Learning that there is no such thing as failure, simply people, places and things that are placed in our paths to help us understand our true nature may be the spiritual lesson you learn this summer and fall. ✪ Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) Sagittarius, this is a time when you can free yourself of personal inhibitions that may have been part of your life in

✪ Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) Aquarius, you may find this a time of changes in your value system and a period where many of your past attitudes are discarded in favor of those that are conducive to growth. Part of this lesson may involve encountering unexpected circumstances that bring about a fluctuating or uncertain income. Learning to be comfortable and event excited about not knowing what the future holds, or what your “meant to do” brings back your love of life as an adventure and can be a part of your spiritual journey this summer and fall. ✪ Pisces (February 19 – March 20) Pisces you can expect monumental changes to your outlook on life and the way in which you project yourself to others. Many may already be see the start of the new you emerging. Freedom of expression is deeply important now. It is a time of making breaks from the past that have limited your freedom or that kept you from expressing your individuality. This is a time when you are willing to take personal risks. Consciousness is awakening in areas of your life that it touches in surprising ways. As such, there may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations or past conditioning patterns. Realizing that you are not your past is a key to awakening your true self and part of your spiritual journey this summer and fall.
