Why We Believe In Supporting EVERYONE! ONENESS: THE STATE OF COMPASSIONATE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT ARISES FROM THE REALIZATION THAT WE ARE ALL TRAVELING DIFFERENT PATHS THAT LEAD TO THE SAmE DESTINATION... In the past few months it has been brought to our attention that there have been a few individuals and organizations have inferred that our event is not “legitimate” using phrases like “out there” or “full of flakes”, followed by the suggest that if they wanted (their business, spa, clinic, practice) to be taken seriously, they should do their event. In addition to this, there is much reason to believe that they have been calling from a list that they generated by harvesting emails and phone number from the archived exhibitor lists on our site. The past few years we’ve seen a rise in the number of shows that are becoming even more focused on one particular aspect of holistic living... Health Shows, fitness expos, green expos, women’s health, new consciousness expos, success expos, the law of attraction expo, and the list goes on! We first saw this possibility early in the development of our events over 10 years ago! While our intention was to create an event that provide an environment where people can learn of all the wonderful options that exist in their quest for a more rich and fulfilling life, we also have also seen how the quest for growth and wellbeing has become “big business”! We don’t believe that there is anything wrong this sudden increase in public interest – we actually think it’s wonderful – and are in the front of the cheering squad of those who find success in doing what they love, but with the rise in public interest comes those who would exploit this “emerging market” for no other reason but profit, or getting their piece of the pie! Our vision has always been to create an event would provide a more inclusive look at everything that celebrates life, and encourages a happier, healthier, more conscious and successful life, and bring everyone together for an event that embraced all that this entails - not break it down into smaller and smaller segments! We are a proponent of oneness, and believe that our events and the community it serves are as well. When we started the Body Soul & Spirit Expo 15 years ago, we started with a carefully researched comprehensive list of EVERYTHING people want to see in a show of this type, from healing arts, alternative therapy providers, new and cutting edge products, life coaches, moOver

tivational speakers, intuitive consultants, spiritual advisers, spiritual groups, schools, organizations, resources and more. Nothing makes us feel better, or provide more joy and fuel to continue in this work then when we hear from people whose lives have been profoundly and positively affected through their interaction with something or someone that they discovered at our event!  I can also attest that equal shares of these stories come from so called “qualified”, legitimate:” or “certified” products, organizations or individuals, as much as from those who may be considered “flakes” such as psychics, clairvoyants, numerologists, astrologers, energetic healers, shamanic healers, and many more of the long list of those that make up the diversity our event represents. We choose to stand firm by our decision to provide an open and non-judgmental environment of freedom and dignity for all. We believe strongly that those who come to their show have both the intelligence as well as enough of a connection with their inner guidance to find what is right for their life. To our detractors: we extend our compassion, and forgive any ill will intentional or otherwise, and honor your right to your option as well! We honor and respect you ALL!

Who would have thought that a whole year has gone by since the inception of the Body Soul & Spirit Magazine – it seems more like a few months ago! We feel we’ve made great strides in fulfilling our mandate to create a publication that will provide the best possible promotional value possible to you, our community as well as the many clients we have worked with over the past 15 years. It’s amazing our desires and intentions have resulted in situations and circumstances that have caused us to refocus and refine our concept to improve upon what we’ve already created. Here is a quick summary of the improvements we will begin implementing in the magazine! A more details overview follow this summary list: • Our New Format will offer twice the value or the same promotion for half the price. w

A Dramatic increase in circulations and launch of our Eastern Canada Addition to become the most widely circulating holistic, new thought, green living and natural health publication in Canada.

The Integration of the Magazine with our Online Directory, Events and Article Listings

Our New Format – A More Affordable & Effective Promotional Solution The New Format will be a Magazine Resource Directory and Expo Guide Our 4th Issue, was the last “between expos” edition, as we transition to a Bi-Annual Spring/Summer

and Fall/Winter Format. Publication Dates will be March 1 and September 1 of each year to correspond with the start of the expo seasons! New Toronto Expo will signal the Launch of the Eastern Canada Edition of our Magazine. Many of you know that the Body Soul & Spirit Expo has had a long history in Ontario! We took a break about 5 years ago when we decide that there simply too many events, fairs and expos vying for the same market! Since then the entire landscape has changed! In the past 6 months we’ve been receiving calls, emails and messages from people urging us to come back. As a result, we will be launching the First Annual Body Soul & Spirit Magazine – Eastern Edition at the Body Soul & Spirit Expo which will be a regular part of our tour Toronto. Those who want to advertising in the Eastern and Western Editions may do so at the same annual price as the just one edition. • Less deadlines to worry about. • Features for some of the most notable authors in our genre, • Local News from the communities we distribute in, • Articles and editorial from our exhibitors and presenters, • Profiles and information about the many exhibitors, workshops and individuals that will be a part of the Body Soul & Spirit Expos during the upcoming show seasons. • We also will be turning the expo section into an insert to accommodate all the last minute lectures, workshops and exhibits so those attending the show will receive the most up to date information about the event they are attending.


We will continue to distribute in all our locations and thereby provide continued exposure for all our advertisers throughout the year. The Integration of the Magazine with our Online Directory, Events, Article Listings, and Social Network. We’ve been working with our web development team for several months to create the most effective and beneficial online solution that will support or expos and magazine as well as provide an effective added value promotion for those who advertise in our magazine. Addition Social Networking Features The Body Soul & Spirit Expo currently has over 87,000 individuals that have subscribed to our expo anointments, news and updates over the 15 years we have been hosting events. In addition our own social network - which will soon be integrated with our new site which at last count has almost 1000 active members and is growing every day. So What does this all mean to you–our readers? It means that we will be giving you more relevant and timely information not only our expos, but in culling articles from those who are presenting themselves at our shows–the many professionals who are working hard at giving you the information and services you go looking for–you will be able to read information about those people in the booths that you passed by, but perhaps had some interest in. You also will be able to glean some information from the presenters that may have been too busy during your visit. We are working hard to bring you, the reader, information that you want. We welcome your comments and even your criticisms, so that we can make this the kind of magazine that you want to read with the type of information you want to read about. Perhaps even the surprise of finding that hidden nugget of information that you didn’t know about. Ultimately, this magazine is about you, and we want you to be involved in it’s creation and evolution.

Why is it that some people suffer from stress disorders when all of us are surrounded by similar stressors in our lives? This is because people react to their perception of stressful situations, rather than the stressful situation itself. The same event can lead to very different reactions in different people. You are the one who dictates not only how you perceive your environment but also how your body reacts to the situation. There is no such thing as an idle or neutral thought, which should act as a huge motivation to practice positive thoughts. You are 100 percent in control of your perception of your environment. This consequently influences your internal biochemistry and your health. You can directly control how your cells react to any given environment. The future in medicine is harnessing self-empowerment through your own focused thoughts and intentions. Often when discussing energy healing with intentions, the question of belief is mentioned.

Leading the Way to Elite Health Kai Hicks, Intuitive Path SuperFoods

I

have always wanted the work I did to reflect the life I led. I chose to create the company “Intuitive Path SuperFoods” after much contemplation and risk. Knowing that “anything is

possible” is not creating anything at all: only action creates. And therefore I chose to move away from the career I was pursuing to do something I loved. I have become my own health expert and my passion is to help others do the same. Intuitive Path SuperFoods’ mission is to create a healthier way of life, not through expensive supplementation or harmful dieting, but through whole foods that behave more like medicines, nourishing our bodies with essential vitamins, minerals and unique properties. In the process of creating this company I have found a synergistic connection between three products: Hemp Seed, Cacao Powder and Yerba Mate. Individually these foods improve clarity, vitality and physical energy. Although each of these foods has significant properties of their own, when combined clients report reduced addictive behaviours.

HEMP SEED Hemp seed helps curb appetite. They are packed with at least 35% of the easiest to digest protein. Hemp seed contains all 10 of 10 essential amino acids (EAAs). It is rich in a multitude of minerals including, potassium, magnesium,

calcium, silicone, platinum, boron, lithium and many others. It is the perfect balance of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. They help us burn excess fat by delivering readily available energy that helps remove and carry toxins from our organs. Because hemp seeds are a fast digesting protein, not only do we gain more energy, but we gain energy for longer periods of time. They also improve the immune system, physical strength, flexibility, agility, complexion, hair luster, speed of healing, and the functionality of the liver and pancreas. “Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life.” David Wolfe:  Superfoods – Medicine of the Future

CACAO More than appetite suppressing, cacao is the highest antioxidant food in the world – the next 4 antioxidant-rich foods in the world combined do not equal cacao. Cacao contains the highest levels of iron, magnesium and serotonin of any food source in the world. Not only does it contain serotonin it also helps your body produce its own. (Magnesium is reported to be the most deficient mineral in North Americans.) Cacao is also rich in calcium, zinc, copper, manganese and potassium and a good source of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and

8 • www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com spring/SUMMER 2010

E. Cacao stimulates the secretion of endorphins, producing a pleasurable sensation similar to the “runner’s high” a jogger feels after running several miles. Cacao acts as an anti-depressant, promoting a sense of well-being. Roasting and cooking cacao reduces antioxidant levels, destroys serotonin and magnesium so eating it raw is best. Intuitive Path SuperFoods offers classes in raw chocolate making and superfood integration into your every day diet.

YERBA MATE T he highly recognized Pasteur Institute states, “Yerba Mate has most all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life.” Although Yerba Mate is similar to Green Tea, it is much higher in nutritional value and does not contain caffeine. It has a terrific array of minerals, trace minerals, and vitamins as well as the stimulant mateine. It curbs the appetite by providing what the body needs, increases energy, helps regulate sleep cycles, detoxifies the blood, relieves fatigue, and boosts the immune system. These are three of the many Superfoods that Intuitive Path provides to optimize your health. With sugar and carbohydrate reliance at an all-time high, diabetes affecting more people many of us are searching for another way. The truth is the answer is right in front of us. And it’s simple. Eat raw whole Superfoods for at least one meal a day.b


Your Child’s Imaginary Friends By Michelle L. Gruendel AEP (in training)

A

s you may remember as a young child, you had imaginary friends. Sadly, society discourages children from talking to imaginary friends, we tell our children to grow up, stop playing these games, and get into the reality that we know. We think this is going to help with their day to day lives, make it easier on them to copy with society and the rules. What we don’t realize is, staying connected with those imaginary “friends” actually can help your child trust their intuition about people, situations, and to know right from wrong.

‘crystals’ I knew he was seeing something beyond what we’d talked about in day to day conversations.

in tune with his past lives, his angels and his true life’s purpose, but when we force them to stop daydreaming, stop believing in things they cannot ‘see’ we can take away that delightful connection, or suppress it. You may recall time, yourself, when you had an imaginary friend; chances are that you even remember the name of this guide, but something or someone along the way, created fear in you to pursue the relationship. You want to prevent this from happening to your lovely children, and keep them open to using the gifts they brought with them from God.

When children cannot sleep, walk them through a guided meditation, and encourage them to take themselves thru that meditation to ease the day’s burdens. Help them to create a special place in their mind’s eye that they can go to, a place that brings them peace, and you will find that they are better at soothing themselves to sleep.

resulted for those who adopted the institute’s extraordinary methods. He will afford time in all of his presentations to answer questions from attendees. Many people from Western Canada have attended HHI and brought about their own recoveries from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and an endless list of other maladies. Dr. Clement’s lectures emphasize that it is time for people to awaken and take total responsibility for their lives. Humanity has been lulled and seduced into believing that society is protected by government and corporate interests. On the contrary, these organizations are more focused on profit than on people and their health. Recent fraudulent activity by the pharmaceutical establishment and elected officials is highlighted by the swine epidemic. Collusive schemes like these underline the lengths the powers that be are willing to go to for greater profits. After hearing Dr. Clement, there are reports from around the world stating that attendees will never be the same and, more importantly, that they are willing and ready to become part of the ever-growing shift in consciousness being brought about by health-minded people. This shift will reclaim humanity—and our planet. It is time to stop worrying and act in an affirmative way. There are no insurmountable problems, only self-doubt.

Priscilla is a certified teacher and practitioner offering a variety of complementary non-invasive modalities, including: Serenity Vibration Healing®, Enlightenment Technique, BodyTalk, German New Medicine, The Reconnection® and others. These techniques work at transcendent levels to synchronize energies within the bodies of people and living things. Courses and Sessions in person or by phone: Priscilla Petersen, Healing Energies 403-362-4475 ppetersen@shaw.ca www.SVHenergies.com


Serenity Vibration Healing® and Enlightenment Technique (SVH) THE PREMIER TOOL FOR MASTERING THE MIND.  SVH is the safest, most effective means of reformatting genetic and current life imbalances, as well as restoring harmony to the physical body and quieting the mind. It is a personal empowerment tool that works at transcendent levels to reform foundations of limiting beliefs that can stop you from reaching your highest ideal. SVH empowers your highest source  (Creator, Universe, God, Jesus, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, or the host of Angels) to energetically release your limiting beliefs and perceptions, while reformatting genetic predispositions and non-serving life patterns. SVH assists in understanding universal laws so that you can tap into your infinite potential. Use it for your own healing and evolution, or assist your fellow man, animals, and Mother Earth. You have found what you need to gracefully assist you in achieving a joyful, abundant and harmonious life!

HOW IS SVH DIFFERENT? The founder, Jill Marie, is gifted to work with the Creator and great Masters of Light to develop the SVH mastery tools.  These have been organized in such a way that a simple thought activates the mechanisms learned in the courses to utilize the tools, literally in seconds under any circumstance.  Open up a thought or concept and SVH focuses a huge data base of information directed toward your intent.  Your conscious free-will choice to deal with an issue activates shifting in an instant. Utilizing the SVH tools brings you back to peace and tranquility, raising your vibration and the vibration around you. 

QUANTUM LEVEL REPROGRamMING (QLR) – THE FOUNDATION OF SVH. We are born with programs which came from our ancestors. We receive further programming from our parents, teachers, friends, spouse, employers, doctors, clergy and information held in

collective consciousness.  Further to this, life events such as birth, divorce, accidents, failures, and death can reinforce fear and feelings of low vibration. All human experience, as well as the history of the cosmos, is recorded somewhere in various levels of consciousness. If we are not discerning information for ourselves, limiting aspects will hitch onto the ego; either we think for ourselves or we allow external forces to determine our reality. QLR works to quiet the limiting voice of ego that is triggered by current stimulus. Quieting the ego allows us to create with focused clarity to support rapid and sometimes instant manifestation. Imagine being able to focus your mind, utilizing many levels of consciousness, to create the reality you desire. Anything is possible when mind chatter is quieted.

SOVEREIGNTY AND AUTOMOMY. With the use of SVH tools, you will experience the freedom of living your life without attracting or allowing drama, trauma and limiting experiences. You will have the ability to release and remove blocks to a smooth, graceful, expedient evolution to higher consciousness. How do you know if something is truly meant to be, or if events have manifested into your reality as a result of random sequences that you inadvertently fueled into formation?  SVH assists you in formulating choices with confidence and provides the tools to fix problems. If the creation energy that fueled those realities was not in sync with your ideal, you experience disharmony.  When you design and define an outcome, creation energy automatically fuels it.  To be sovereign and autonomous is to step into your mastery and choose your ideal reality.

DELEGATE YOUR HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS TO CARRY THE DIRECTIVES OF YOUR CHOICES TO THE CREATOR.  Ancient

traditions

and

quantum physics has shown that we have the ability to commune with the forces of the cosmos to choose our reality (Prayer). Prayer is a measureable thought-form, directing our intentions to the forces of creation. It is an act of redefining limitations in our reality. This ability may be one of the most sophisticated and empowering forces to grace our time. SVH is an active form of prayer. It can be utilized with all belief systems. Every mechanism is implemented by the Creator and every element of the modality is aligned with the highest principles of divine truth. It is perfected and calibrated ideally to suit you and implemented in divine timing and divine alignment with the ideal reality you are meant to achieve.

LEARN THE MECHANISMS OF MASTER EXPANSION. Heal yourself or enhance your practice by becoming an SVH Practitioner.  Assist loved ones and others in ways you have never imagined.  Learn how to have the Natural Laws of the Universe work for you. Courses and Sessions are offered in person or over the phone. SVH is a system that can be blended with your existing tools, or called upon as a stand-alone modality to effect the changes you are choosing.

Saving You Time and Money You don’t need to change your life to change your body It’s no secret that people are busier these days than they have ever been. Fighting through a struggling economy where layoffs are commonplace, we’re often forced to do more work with fewer resources just to keep afloat. With all that, who

has the money to shop for fresh ingredients to create complete, healthy meals for their families? Or the time to sweat out a 90-minute boot camp style workout every day? Monthly budgets are tight, and the first things to go are often those nice dinners out, that gym membership, or that overpriced diet plan that just isn’t working. It’s time to find better value while still improving your health. The Body by Vi™ Challenge is the answer. With healthy meals for just dollars a day, save money on many of the groceries or take-out meals you might be spending money on now.

W

e are living in a very exciting and powerful time, a moment in history that reflects a radical spiritual transformation at the deepest levels of our consciousness. All of us, whether we recognize it or not, are being challenged to let go of our present form of life and create an entirely new one. This rebirthing that is occurring is allowing us to open to an expanded level of spiritual awareness. As a consequence, we are manifesting a greater amount of creative energy. As we come to recognize that our reality is ours to create, and we are committed to take on the responsibility of this gift, the planet and our existence will evolve.

control for no concrete reason, are just a sample of some of the symptoms that are arising. As we take on more light it is important to remember that we are always being confronted with the opposite amount of darkness and we must not shy away from integrating or transmuting this as well. Love and gratitude for yourself and life in all its expression is essential to move with grace through our transformation.

My clinical practice and the personal growth classes that I offer primarily focus on supporting individuals through the rapid evolutionary changes that are happening in our bodies and our consciousness. My goal is to assist the earth and its people manifest a united body-mind, heartsoul multi-dimensional light body. Some of the therapies and practices I recommend and utilize in my practice are; soul retrieval, shadow work, cellular memory therapy, energy medicine, sound therapy, cleansing, bodywork, body chemistry and hormone balancing, and most importantly one’s own spiritual practice.

Dr. Susan Janssens, a licensed naturopathic doctor for over ten years, completed her doctorate in medicine at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Phoenix, Arizona. Through her career, Dr. Janssens has traveled to many countries broadening her understanding of healthcare by engaging in other cultures healing and spiritual practices. She helped found the Integrative Medicine Institute in Calgary, whereby she received a significant grant to research chronic disease, specifically cancer.

Dr. Janssens’ journey led her to medical clinics in Russia, Germany, Ireland, Mexico and the USA, where she observed some of the world’s leading doctors pioneer cutting edge methods and technologies. She now has established the Maya Health Centre and most recently Integrative Health care online. Here, she addresses patient’s health in its entirety, looking for the root cause of illness and administering the most beneficial treatment plan.

Living from the heart, deepening with one’s self and remembering one’s “Soul” purpose are important steps to becoming an integrated and whole multidimensional being.

Body Management Asking the Body What It Needs for Optimal Health

I

have been working in alternative medicine since 1995.

I learned to talk to the body from Al Berry, a renowned healer who lived in B.C. He perfected a way of healing called ‘Body Management’ wherein one could ask the body questions and receive answers. Over the years I have expanded what Mr. Berry taught, asking many more in depth questions that cover all possible illnesses, diseases, and imbalances. I came to realize that the amount of questions and how they are asked is unlimited and totally safe. Your body would never let me hurt it. With an increased number of questions, I am able to fine tune the body and discover any point of distress or imbalance and measure it. I use a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best. Your body wants to be at its healthiest, to have its organs in the proper position and avoid exposure to anything that would harm it by ingestion or application. Testimonies tell the journey of my healing career and why you would want to make an appointment to see me. Headaches: One of my favorite miracles is a lady who woke every morning with a headache. The MD’s prescribed pain killers,

but it didn’t stop the headaches. I quickly discovered by asking the body what caused the headaches: it was her clock radio sitting beside her on the night table. Immediately after removing the clock her headaches disappeared. Kidney Failure: A lady came to me with only 15% kidney function. By talking to her body I quickly found the cause. Every night she craved a favorite lemon drink she thought was good for her. Although the drink tasted good, it was actually poisoning her. She called back three days later and said she no longer had back pain and felt so much better. The MDs confirmed that the kidneys were functioning 100% normally again. Lungs: A cattle farmer was seeing lung specialists because he couldn’t breathe properly. After asking the body, I quickly discovered he had a problem with his tractor. He admitted he needed to fix the muffler. A doctor couldn’t have found the cause but would treat the symptoms only, leading to potentially even more damage (such as lung cancer) further down the road. When I am finished the first session with you, you will know exactly where your weak areas are, how weak they are, and what you need to bring them back into balance. My testing is very gentle and non-invasive, and will not

hurt you in any way. After my testing you will understand your body better than you ever did before, and this knowledge gives you a sense of control and confidence in your body’s ability to heal. People have faith in me because I don’t sell products. I simply ask the body what is needs. Often it is food, a tea or drink, or supplements that are readily available at your local health food store. Thank you for reading this article. If you come to me, you will discover things out about your body that may surprise you. You will certainly learn where your weakness and strengths are, and what your body wants you to do to bring yourself back to optimum health. Until we meet, give your body exercise, drink good water, eat good food, talk to God, and strive to be happy. b Certified Practitioner Delphine Saxinger is a medical intuitive and credits her abilities as a gift from God. “I can talk to your body, get information on health issues, and determine what is needed to support the body to heal itself.” She has helped people with many illness and diseases- everything from cancer to arthritis to chronic stomach condition and countless other ailments.

What is Shamanism? Shamanism is the study of energy and its use. In a shamanic world-view, everything is energy. Illness, disease, mental and emotional disorders are seen as manifestations of imbalances in energy. Change and healing occurs in our lives when we learn to align ourselves with the world of Grandmother Earth (mineral, plants, animals) and with the energies that make up the Universe. The Institute for Contemporary Shamanic Studies (ICSS), is committed to providing the Shamanic teachings and ceremonies of the Sweet Medicine

Leave them behind on the trail and find your natural way of walking. This is you with nature, different from how you are with people, Pay attention to the shift. Where is the energy coming from now?

A shamanic approach to walking Stress out of your life

We know that stress, for example, can be a killer. It can kill our physical body, but also our hope, our creativity and our resilience in life. Stress makes us lose the ability to hear our inner Silence and to communicate with ourselves, spirit and the world around us. When we experience inner Silence, we know we are part of something greater and that we belong. Letting go of stress lets you discover your inner self, unpolluted by inner dialogue, and allows you to become natural in your world. Even in a city, we can find a park, a garden or a path along a river to connect to the world. But how often do we allow our agendas and expectations to cramp our naturalness and easiness in life? Make sure you walk with no destination or purpose other than to ‘be’. Silence the inner dialogue that tells you small, unhappy, negative, fearful

begin to become aware of your natural self. You may find you are walking with more power. You feel natural and relaxed.

Now walk this back into your life and repeat it as often as you can. Be hungry to know your place in the natural world. Soon you will be able to connect to the Silence anytime, by stepping outside the door and taking a breath, gazing at a tree through the window, for you belong to this world. Grandmother Earth feeds every one of her children’s physical body for all the days of their lives. We are her children, we belong, and we can find her in the Silence. Join us for a workshop on how to address and eliminate stress in your life (see the ad on this page for workshop details and our information). Presented by Janneke Laughing Willow who has worked in personal growth counseling for 28 years and is a respected teacher of the medicine in Sweet Medicine Sundance Path.
