WHY MEDITATE? - by Rev. Nicole Moronval

a meditation practice with the best of intentions, only to stop before we can really reap any of the benefits. In the beginning of our practice, we must discipline ourselves, even if for just five minutes a day, for at least 21 days, before the discipline becomes a habit. Despite our busy schedules, there is always time during the day to snatch a few minutes of quiet time. Five minutes of deep breathing in the bathroom, in the shower, while washing dishes, while going for a walk, of being fully present in the moment is just the beginning stages of transformation. Just before going to sleep, focus on your gratitude as you mentally go over every good thing that happened to you during the day. These are all small tools that you can easily incorporate into

he practice of meditation has so many known benefits that it is surprising more people don’t indulge in it more often. Meditation affects every aspect of our being in positive ways. Physically, meditation does more than simply help us to relax. Science has shown that it boosts our immune system, reduces our blood pressure, lowers our cholesterol and even slows down the aging process. It improves our sleep, teaches us breath control and improves our concentration and focus. People who meditate regularly look younger and feel better. Emotionally, the practice of meditation teaches us to live in the present moment and brings us a sense of serenity and peace. It alleviates depression and anxiety and fills us with a sense of well-being. It is unsurpassable in its ability to help us break through our addictions and release our emotional baggage and insecurities. Mentally, the power of creative visualization allows us to work with Law of Attraction to visualize what we desire, clarify our intentions, spend time in joyful moments, and enable those desires to manifest. your busy day.

Change Is Hard - How to Take the Leap

I

’m sure that you have heard the saying “change is hard.” You may also have heard the saying that “change is inevitable.” In fact, there are a great many quotes about change because it is a constant and sometimes terrifying aspect of human life. Even when you’re the one who is initiating the change, it can still be difficult. When you decide that you want to live well and simplify your life at the same time, it’s a positive change - but that still doesn’t make it any easier. 1. Understand That Change Can be Tough There are several reasons why we struggle with change. One of the most compelling reasons is that it usually means letting go. For example, if you decide to simplify your life, that decision may come with a realization that you need to downsize your home or move to a less expensive community. You have to let go of the home that you have now. Letting go is difficult for many people. It’s easy to become attached to a current situation even when you know you’re moving to something more positive. That’s another reason why change is so difficult; there is the element of the unknown. You may feel anxious about a new situation not working out the way you’d hoped or planned. There’s risk with change. For example, even if your long list of positives outweighs the potential negatives of moving to a smaller home, the unknown elements can be pretty scary.

The risks and the need to let go can prevent you from making change - from living a life that may be more rewarding, fulfilling, and happier. So what do you need to do to take the leap? 2. Have a Vision One of the most important elements of success is a vision of what you want your future to look like. Take time to visualize what living well means to you. Evaluate what you currently have that supports your vision and get rid of the rest. Eliminate anything that doesn’t fit into your idea of living well. Document that vision. Write it down and keep it handy. If you are a visual person, you might consider creating a vision board so you can see your future and embrace it every day.

3. Live Like It Is Already True Start acting as if you’ve already made the changes and are living your envisioned life. This changes your mindset and makes it much easier to take positive steps. You’ll feel so much more confident Summer Intensive Yoga Teacher Training

Happy Baby Pose (Ānanda Balāsana) Story

By Rupa efore dawn, it is the darkest night. Before being delivered, the baby needs to go through the narrow dark birth canal to come to this world.

B

The story of Happy Baby relates to Mukunda, the Supreme God. Once the best of the learned sages, Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi is meditating at the bank of a river. A strong fast wind suddenly arises. The wind creates a terrible sound and black clouds obstruct the sun and hurls lightning in every direction. Rains are pouring down, the world is all covered by water. This is the final dissolution of the world. Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi sees all the inhabitants of the universe, including himself, submerged in water of inundation. As the whole world is flooded, he becomes fearful and loses consciousness. He experiences lamentation, bewilderment, misery and pain. He feels himself dying. He is left wondering like this for countless years. Suddenly, amongst all the confusion, Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi notices a banyan leaf floating on the water, tossed by the waves. On this unlikely raft lies a beautiful and adorable child suckling his right toe, unperturbed by the calamity that has befallen the world. It is Mukunda who can award liberation.

The infant’s heavenly smile negates the brutality of the cosmic deluge. His compassionate glance reassures Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi that this is not the end of the world but beginning of a new life. Self-inquiry from the story: Can we endure the pain of destruction before attaining the ultimate bliss? We all look for happiness. We should know that happiness is a feeling, a feeling opposite of sorrow. Without the experience of sorrow we cannot experience happiness. Sorrow comes after happiness; happiness comes after sorrow. No one can avoid this paradox. Like day comes after night, night comes after day. Death comes after birth, birth comes after death. This is the law of material nature. Only when we are able to accept things as they are, by not pursuing happiness, then we can attain eternal bliss. Welcome to Rupa’s Yoga and Meditation classes at Wishingtree Yoga. Rupa Manjari Devi Das (Ivy) has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom; her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat! For more information, visit www.wishingtreeyoga.ca

Please Eat The Hydrosols

H

ydrosols are also known as floral waters although that not all floral waters are hydrosols, and not all hydrosols are floral! True hydrosols are a by- product of the distillation process of essential oils. Unlike essential oils, which are highly concentrated, hydrosols are mostly water. To follow up on last month’s article about the hazards of ingesting essential oils, hydrosols provide an alternative! I often recommend neroli or rose for a facial toner or cleanser that is suitable for all skin types and mature skin. These hydrosols may be more commonly recognized in Middle Eastern delicacies such as baklava, where the sweet scent is delicately infused into the pastry. This leads me to another point: hydrosols are extremely versatile. They can be added to cooking (depending on the plant), to bathing, to humidifiers and so on. With 3 teens in the house, I am challenged to find skin care help that doesn’t come off the drug store shelf. Commercial products can contain many ingredients that you would not

want on your skin, including alcohol and preservatives to prolong their shelf life. We have found that rosemary, peppermint or witch hazel hydrosols provide an astringent cleanser that keeps pores tightened. I recently starting experimenting with ravensara hydrosol which has immune enhancing properties, a wonderful addition to a soothing bath, or in a steam inhalation. I recently tried sage hydrosol in the diffuser for my son’s congestion-not only did his room smell wonderful, it seemed to do the trick in calming his cough and fever. These are but a few of the hydrosols and their uses;: the best way to get to know them is to experience them firsthand. At Planet Botanix, we have a variety of natural ingredients and workshops to allow you to create your own fabulous, fresh bodycare! ©2016 Heather Garrod is a certified aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix Wellness Shop and Clinic, 301 Bank St., 613.567.4444 www.planetbotanix.com

Embracing satisfying communications “Availability in communication immediately creates intimacy.” Thomas Hübl

I

lived 15 years in India studying ancient Sanskrit texts and exploring a remarkably pure wisdom; so pure and essential that it is still applicable today. Within those gems of wisdoms we find the value of sharing, bonding and uniting with our fellow human beings. The value of intimacy was appreciated then as it still is today. Many of my clients mention feeling isolated, that the business of life makes it so that they feel a sense of solitude, a sense of loneliness in a crowd. Many contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and researchers believe that a healthy social life is essential to health and longevity. Taking the time to be social is a necessary component of our general health. However, how available and present are we when we are interacting socially? To truly communicate is to be one with the person(s) with whom we communicate with. But how do we really achieve this objective? Simply by learning the art of gently looking, sensing and listening. This can be more easily done if we understand that fundamentally we are one with the person(s) with whom we are talking with. In our very essence, we can find that we are united with everyone and everything. The illusion that we are separate is the root cause of our problems. I was recently asked how to hold a conversation without disconnecting, either drifting in thought, daydreaming, or feeling so disconnected with the situation that we end up being unmindful and talking too much. I believe that shifting our attention from

10

being separate to being one with is one of the ways to achieve real satisfying communication. It takes practice, and the gentle deepening achieved in hypnosis helps transcend the rigidity of the mind to reach a deep open heart, and our potential to live a life that is so much more rewarding. We adapt each session to help you take steps in your own pace. But what is striking to me is that the progress is rapid and lasting. I will email you a recording of the sessions, to listen to them at home. They are positive and so deeply relaxing. We do have a great potential, and it is up to us to step towards it. And if you wish to explore enhanced communication skills, join us in Rockland on May 29th for a half day workshop to help with communication and embracing a balanced life-style.

H4 is in basophils, spleen, thymus and bone marrow … the seat of the immune system. Healthy individuals produce two enzymes that break down histamine so that levels don’t rise uncontrollably high. Allergy, infection, cuts/surgery cause histamine levels to rise. Allergy is a mistake of the immune system. Whereas viruses and bacteria are made of proteins, so too are milk, pollens, etc. The immune system scavenges for protein-infectants. In allergy, it interprets food and environmental proteins as threats but they are not threatening germs. Allergy taxes the immune system. In addition to allergy and infection raising histamine level, some people produce too little of one or both of the histamine digesting enzymes which leads to ‘Histamine Intolerance’. If you are intolerant of gluten, lactose or casein or have food and/or environmental allergies, you should avoid them in order to reduce your histamine levels. Where avoidance is impractical, consider Nambudripad Allergy Elimination techniques (NAET) to treat allergy. A ‘DAO’ enzyme that destroys histamine is recently available through the internet. It has brought relief to many

Feeling Unsafe to Move Forward - a case study

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. e are evolving beings: Like many clients who find me when they are opening to deeper levels of multi-dimensional awareness, Wanda felt she had reached a plateau in her healing work and was “missing a piece”. Our higher direction was to support her monadic embodiment with the AoA Hieros Gamos System. As chakras 7-9 were now anchoring more permanently, it required clearing unhealed ego structures, and upgrading her lightbody. The body reveals the pain: Following the session, Wanda experienced persistent pain in her upper arms, weakness, and numbness in her ring and middle fingers. Our arms represent how we relate to others, and our hands are the tools of our profession. They were having a sympathetic response to the changes taking place. Her fingers also corresponded to the axiatonal lines and the dimensional spheres of her 12-dimensional blueprint surrounding her higher heart/chakra 8. Feeling unsafe: Our subsequent session revealed the primary issue to be her subconscious resistance sourcing from memories in other timelines. Persecution for her power had always resulted in death, and she had a long-standing history of feeling unsafe on Earth. So while she had agreed to come here, she resisted moving forward in her mission. A very similar inner conflict often

surfaces for many awakening clients that are anchoring the next purposeful stage of their spiritual ascension. Like many empaths and loving journeyers, she felt the pain of the cruelty here on Earth, and it was disheartening. She coped by becoming more detached in her relating. She subconsciously believed her mission was pointless. She was powerless. She didn’t have enough love and failed. Healing: Relief was immediate by raising consciousness. Allowing emotional catharsis, releasing pressure in her higher heart with the sound vibration of my voice, and adjusting her lightbody configuration released 90% of the pain.

The Language of the Unconscious (Lecture #124)

A

t the next in the monthly series of Pathwork Open Lectures on Wednesday, April 13th, we will continue to explore this season’s theme of creativity, looking this time at our unconscious NO to creating the life we yearn for, its origins in childhood experiences, its subtle manifestations in our present daily lives. It is a paradox in our human existence that the thing we most want to happen in our lives seems to be the very thing that eludes us. We may long for harmonious loving relationship, meaningful work, more healthy behaviours, a deeper spiritual life….yet find these longings repeatedly frustrated. The more urgently we seek our goals, the more difficult it seems to be to reach them. Our temptation is to blame circumstances or other people, or to sabotage ourselves with lack of ‘will power,’ fatigue, laziness, confusion. When we look into our behaviour patterns, however, we find ourselves going back to our early childhood where we discover hurts that led us to form faulty beliefs about the world, ourselves and others. We find that we have set up our defenses based on these early misconceptions. With such exploration, we make significant inroads into understanding our reactions and our interactions with the world. Yet, even armed with these discoveries, the life we say ‘yes’ to, the goals we fantasize about and long for may still elude us. If we take the time to look more deeply, with patience and perseverance, we will find that alongside our conscious ‘YES’ to our fulfillment there smolders a half-conscious or unconscious ‘NO.’ We carry an inner subtle negativity that is a deeper aspect of our defense structure.

5 PROVEN Tips To Help You Wipe Out Your Depression So You Can Live A Happy Life By Dr Luke Howard Clinical Hypnotist

A

re you lonely? Did you know that being lonely is a normal part of our everyday lives. Lets face it, we've all been there. We get depressed when we fail in our exams, when we're rejected by the person we love, or when someone very close to us passes away. That's just part of life. But, depression, however, can be more fatal than just plain loneliness. It could render Life-Long consequences that could ruin your Self-Esteem, Health, and WellBeing in the process. Well today is your lucky day because I'm going to share with you some great tips to help you conquer the 'Melancholy Mood' so you can get the MOST bliss out of your daily activities. So, with that said, lets go to Tip #1. Tip #1. Do you get enough Light and Sunshine? Did you know that lack of exposure to sunlight is responsible for the secretion of the hormone called Melatonin, which could trigger a dispirited mood and/ or a lethargic condition. Melatonin is only produced in the dark. What it does is it lowers the body temperature and makes you feel sluggish. So, if you are always cooped up in your room (with the curtains closed), it would be difficult to restrain yourself from staying in bed.

This is the reason why many people suffer from depression much more often in winter than in the other seasons. It's simply because the nights are longer. If you can't afford to get some sunshine, you can always lighten up your room with brighter lights to help offset the darkness. Or you could go have lunch outside the office for a change and take frequent walks in the early afternoon instead of driving your car over short distances. The choices are endless. It's really up to you. Tip #2. Keep Busy and Get Inspired. You'll be more likely to overcome any feeling of depression if you keep your mind busy doing the activities you like doing the most. Do the things you love. If you're a little short on cash, you could engage in simple stuff like taking a leisurely stroll in the park, playing sports, reading books, or engaging in any activity that you have passion for and would love to pursue. Also, set a Goal. No matter how difficult or discouraging life can be, remain firm and have an unshakable belief that you are capable of doing anything you desire. With this kind of positive attitude, you will attain a cheerful disposition to beat the blues. Tip #3. Take a Break. Sit back and Relax. I mean it. Listen to some soothing music you like. Soak in a nice warm bath. Simply take a break from your stressful workload and spend the day just goofing around doing the things you love. In other words, go have fun. Life's to short as it is.

You Can Lose Weight Without Painful Surgery Are you having trouble Losing Weight, Keeping it off & Killing Evil Cravings? Then Dr. Luke Michael Howard can help you even when nothing else has worked. With he's specialist brand of Gastric Band Weight Loss Hypnosis all the way from the UK. Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis, is a Hypnosis Weight Loss Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 17 years now and has trained all over the world. After over a decade, Dr. Luke is still the youngest person certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. Dr. Luke has been featured in all forms of media such as Tone Magazine, CTV Morning Live, and CBC Radio. He has developed an advanced hypnotherapy technique that turns weak willed over eaters into empowered, slim & in control people in just 5 sessions. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 80% success rate. This is incredible when you think that Weight Watchers are only about 30% successful at best. This Powerful Non-surgical procedure has been well documented or FOX,CBS & ABC News as well as the Dr Oz Show.

Dr. Luke explains, “This powerful breakthrough technique combines the latest discoveries in hypnosis and the new science of personal achievement known as Neuro Linguistic Programming. This takes the power of hypnosis to a new level in helping people take back control of their lives.” Many local doctors are so impressed by the power of hypnosis that they are now referring many of their patients to Dr. Luke for his Accelerated Change Hypnoband Programme. Dr. Luke says, “I am currently building a Doctors Referral Network to keep local GP’s informed of my developments and to keep them informed of their patients’ progress.

“I walked out 25lbs Lighter!” Kate had been over weight for the majority of her life- nearly 27 YEARS! She had tried every type of Weight Loss Gimmick, Diets, Supplements, Gym Memberships even Personal Trainers but nothing worked, until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promised I would do a testimonial for you. Here it is: The hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I lost 25lbs I have not eaten at timmies...I have had NO DESIRE TOO!!! It really has changed my life!” Check out more testimonials at: www.lukenosis.com you can contact Dr. Luke at 613-878-5874 to arrange an appointment.


Tip #4. Maintain a healthy diet and Stay Fit. Avoid foods with lots of Sugar, Caffeine or Alcohol. Sugar and caffeine may give you a brief moment of energy; but they will later bring about Anxiety, Tension and Internal problems. Alcohol on the other hand is a depressant. Many people would drink alcohol to simply "forget their problems." All they're doing is aggravating their conditions in the process. Also, did you know that exercising regularly is a vital depression buster. Why you ask? Simply because it allows your body to produce more Endorphins than usual. Endorphins are sometimes called "the happy chemicals" because of their Stress-Reducing and Happiness-Inducing properties. Tip #5. Get a Social Life outside of work. No man is an island. Your inner circle of friends are there to give you moral support. Spending time and engaging in worthwhile activities with them could give you a very satisfying feeling. And we all now... nothing feels better than having group support. And... never underestimate the power of Touch. What I mean is... doesn't it feel so good when someone pats you on the back and gives you words of encouragement during your most challenging times? Hug or embrace someone today. Get intimate. Establish close ties with your family and friends. The love and care expressed by others could tremendously boost your immune system and fend off illnesses. Best of all, you'll live a more secured and happy life. Now go give those 5 Tips a try and see how they pan out for you.

Hormonal Imbalance and Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac

A

hormonal imbalance occurs when there is too much estrogen relative to progesterone in a woman’s body, also referred to as estrogen dominance. In a normal cycle, estrogen and progesterone hormones work together to maintain a woman’s menstrual cycle, each playing an important role. When a hormone balance occurs and estrogen levels are too high, it can lead to many problems with a woman’s reproductive cycle, from PMS symptoms to menstrual problems or irregular periods, to mood swings, abdominal weight gain, increased levels of stress hormones, uterine fibroids, and an increased risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and breast cancer. The causes for an estrogen-progesterone hormone imbalance include aging, stress, birth control pills, and lifestyle factors like diet and weight. A hormone imbalance can lead to a drastic decrease in quality of life and cause very real difficulties in a woman’s daily life, from mood problems to sleep problems, to menstrual cycle problems. It can be a complex problem to treat, and many women are dissatisfied with medications or hormone replacement as a solution.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine offer an effective and safe option for managing and resolving a hormone imbalance. Acupuncture has a regulating effect on the body and can help to promote normal functioning of various systems, from hormone levels to sleep cycle, energy levels, moods, and digestion. By looking at the various symptoms that are presenting, we can determine the areas of the body that are not functioning properly and treat the root cause of the problem. As the body regains healthy equilibrium and these causes are treated, the hormones begin to normalize and the symptoms will begin to lessen. Over time and with continued treatments, the body’s imbalance should resolve. Often lifestyle factors play an important role in successfully managing and resolving them. This includes managing stress levels and emotional stress, getting regular exercise, maintaining a regular sleep-wake schedule, staying hydrated, and a healthy diet. While these seem like common sense strategies, they are indeed pillars of good health and help us to maintain good health throughout the many changes we face in life.

SECRETS

Written by Alexis Nicol Do you hang on to a secret? Have you asked yourself why? Is it worth your health to keep hiding it? Secrets eat away at our lives. They predominately serve our egos. Not only do they aim at controlling but they manage to hurt the one we should love the most – OURSELF! When we keep a secret(s) we are inadvertently blocking energy from flowing freely through us. We are creating a barrier that we hope others can’t see through. Our energy is being depleted as it tries to find alternate ways in order to avoid our secret being exposed. Eventually it can affect/infect the areas that are inevitably connected to a part, gland and/or organ of our body. We may experience dis-ease because there is a lack of healthy energy flowing unobstructed to these parts.

Secrets can also affect us mentally, emotionally and spiritually, not just physically. If you are hiding behind a secret or an old wound, I would encourage you to find a safe way to unburden and replace them with unconditional love and forgiveness. There are many ways for you to do this affectively. One method is by writing yourself a letter with the intention of releasing any fear, guilt, shame, and the scary emotions associated with it and then burn it. Another technique you could use would be by sharing with someone that you Everyone deserves a calm, peaceful, side-effect free life. trust and will not judge you, someone that will encourage you on your journey.

Vision of the Geeta

By Swami Tejomayananda hagavad Geeta is the Divine Song sung by Lord Krishna in the battlefield for removing Pandava Prince Arjuna’s confusion. Sri Krishna needed to teach Arjuna about his duty and also show him the true way of life. He wanted to prove to him that the war he was fighting was a war for justice and righteousness. It was not a war for territory, money or property, but was one to uphold the principles of Dharma. If Arjuna did not fight the war, it would send wrong messages to posterity. The first message: Arjuna the great warrior became a coward and quit the war right at the last moment when he saw that the opposing army was stronger and bigger than his. The second message: Evil triumphs over good. If Arjuna did not fight, the Kauravas would win and continue to rule the kingdom. Further, even though war is evil and results in death, sometimes it is necessary. Arjuna had several other doubts and questions and the discussion in the Bhagavad Geeta then turns not only towards his duty but towards other aspects of life ,like how one should live in this world, other paths of worship etc. A detailed description of the Lord Himself and His qualities are found in the Geeta. The path of Selfrealization is also expounded. The Geeta is really the most important text in Hindu religion since it teaches us how to live in this world, how to become better person and how to obtain a higher status not only in a secular way but also in a spiritual way. Ultimately the Geeta also shows us the path to Self realization or Realization of the Supreme. In the Bhagavad Geeta, Lord Krishna has simplified these subtle concepts and made it easier for us to understand. In this world, we always face choices to make regarding what is right and what is wrong, pleasant and unpleasant, simple and hard and so on. Our problem is that we suffer throughout our life since we do not make the right choice at the right time. If we have our goal clear and our motives good, then our thoughts and our actions will naturally be good. They will lead us in the right direction. This is the central message of the Bhagavad Geeta.

The Illusion of Spirituality

by Wendy Lavigne iriam-Webster’s simple definition of Spirit is “the force within a person that is believed to give the body life, energy and power; the inner quality or nature of a person”. If the word spirit is the root of the word (spirit)uality then one could understand that any practice you choose that supports giving the body life, energy and power can be believed to be accepted as spirituality. This gives great ponder and observation of spirituality as it is often reflected in the dogmas of society. Perhaps if I do all the “right” things then I will achieve enlightenment or manifest all that I desire in life, as though it is a reward for good behaviour. As many of us are on this journey home to ourselves, often we trade in one mask we have created to survive our pain or experiences for another. Like a bandage of sorts. While it buys us time, it does not address our issues. This is where the illusion comes in.

M

We are all unique expressions of our divine spirit. It would only make sense that how my spirit speaks to me may not be what speaks to yours. So I ask you if there have been any times in your life where you have looked upon the practices of another and stood in a place of righteousness? If only “they” would “get it”. I know I have and it is something that I pay attention to about myself everyday. Judging another for their choices of being or where they are currently at in their life speaks more about me than them. How deeply do you embrace who you are without the “doing” in your life? We are constantly on a journey of learning who we truly are so anything that supports you celebrating you is being spiritual. Why would you trade you in for doing the “right” thing in hopes of fitting in? Perhaps the only place you have ever wanted to fit in is where your own heart lives. As you embrace you, it becomes easier to be less attached to the choices of you and others. In fact, you may just come to honour the divine in them as you honour the divine in you. What do you want to create?

Laura’s Numerology News For April 2016

How to calculate your personal monthly number for April Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth and then add the number 4 to this number. You always add double digits together in numerology to reduce to a single number. (Example - birthday of Jan. 5) Jan. (1 month) 5 (day) added together = 6 then add this month’s number which is 4. Then add 6+4=1. You would read point number 1 if this was your birthday. If you still have trouble, email me at Lbaird@istar.ca 1. What is going on with your domestic situation? Are you moving into a new home or renovate your current one. Many new relationships are formed now and some can also end. Family and home issues are highlighted, now. 2. Are you a nerve ending with legs? Do you feel like you are about to lose it and burst into tears at any moment? It’s normal. I see more clients in this influence than any other time. You should use April and in fact the whole year to reevaluate your life and take serious care of yourself. 3. Your skills and talents will create a glow about you and people will notice. Get new business ideas or seeds in the ground and water the heck out of them, now. Selling and communications are highlighted. 4. Do not even think of taking on anything new, yet. It is all about cleaning and elimination of any poop that is on your path. Do this now and you will suck up a new powerful energy that is moving towards you in May. Get ready! 5. Do you want your life to change, big time? Change is in the air, now. You have to accept that they might not be the changes that you thought that you wanted, though. April could be big and memorable. 6. You may be pulled in many, many directions, and all of these extra demands might have you spinning in circles. Relationships and domestic concerns are the focus. Find Zen early and hang on to it. 7. Try to spend more time alone this month, if you can. You will need to regenerate and refuel a bit. You will be really busy in May so pay attention and juice up and get ready, now. 8. You have major decisions to make, and they need to be made now. Make up your mind and get off the fence, immediately. New business opportunities are knocking on your door. OPEN THE DOOR. April is huge for business.

9. You are eager to start new things and put the past behind you, but there is junk on your path and it must be clear off, first. Get down and dirty and ditch. There are new beginnings for you in May. Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist/life coach. Full sessions are available in-person to clients in Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Non-Resistance Is Fertile

By Rev. Roxanne Buckle, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa f resistance is futile, how do we get to a state of NON-RESISTANCE? Non-resistance is one of the most misunderstood spiritual concepts. At the same time, resistance is one of the biggest lessons and growth opportunities. Resistance happens when we want something to be different than what is: “I wish it wasn’t raining,” “She should show her appreciation”, “I shouldn’t be sick.” “This traffic is making me so angry”. These thoughts are ways of wanting reality to be different. The resulting tension and stress is caused by arguing with what is. In the book “Loving What Is” author and teacher Byron Katie says “I am a lover of what is, not because I’m a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality.” She further asserts that “We can know that reality is good just as it is, because when we argue with it we experience tension and frustration… When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.” The big myth and misconception that we hold about non-resistance is that I will become passive and lose the desire to act. But ask yourself which is more empowering: I wish it wasn’t raining right now because I want to go for a walk OR It is raining; what solutions can I find right now to enable me to walk. No one wants their children to get sick, no one wants to be in a car accident; but when things like this happen, how can it be helpful to mentally argue with them? We know better than to do that, yet we do it, so how do we stop? The 4R’s to getting to Non-Resistance are: Recognize, Release, Redirect, and Repeat. When we resist life—all of it—-just like resistance impedes the flow of current to a power source, resistance impedes the flow of presence into the situation, leaving us closed to ideas and possibilities. Through the practice of non-resistance, positive and negative events simply

I

pass. We know that our life experiences are drawn to us to help us grow. When we are nonresistant we allow infinite possibilities of our divine nature to flow through us in the situation. To learn how to use non-resistance in your own life, register for “Loving What is - The Work” a deeply transformative workshop that is for everyone on the path to self realization. Join us on Saturday April 30, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Good Companions Centre for a day with Martha Creek, a renowned and highly popular spiritual teacher, trained and authorized facilitator for Byron Katie’s The Work.

CHOICES

Eroca Zeviar Looking for a solution to a particular health concern? Not interested in having to go the prescription drug route to feel better?  Well there is a program in Ottawa and the National Capital Region that involves an extensive blood report  and the results from such a report do not lie when interpreted by some health care professionals.   The program is called B.A.B.Y. which stands for Build A Better You. Specialists who have practiced natural health for thirty and even forty years have lifelong dedicated clinical experience  and understand how to use natural products in place of many drugs. One such professional, Ellie Cullen, has even written a book called Normal Blood Test Scores Aren’t Good Enough!   This method of returning to full health or even optimal health is quite common but the methods of managing this procedure are not so common. The body can heal itself when given the right circumstances and more often than not can rebuild health naturally when provided with assistance from extra nutrition in the form of detox systems, specialty diets, exercise, stress management and natural supplementation.  Most general practitioners, medical doctors perform blood tests and state that normal levels are all right because they are the norm.   But the norm is not the level desired when one tries to eliminate health concerns and improve health.   Doctors are restricted as to how many blood panels can be done in requisitions for most blood reports. With reports from B.A.B.Y., the number of panels are extensive and some panels are not even available in Canada.   Although these tests are regularly done in labs in the U.S.A., they can be ordered from right here in Ottawa.  One does not have to leave the city or the country to have such a report done via the B.A.B.Y process.  I know for sure because I have already have had it done myself.  For more information contact: Eroca Zeviar 613-233-8787 eroca.lifestar@gmail.com

Nature Cure for Kids!

This July we are offering one of our favourite programs, a holistic day camp for children aged 6-12. We will range over 190 acres of woods and wetlands on the Carp Ridge in search of wild food, herbs, beautiful rocks and rare species of plants and animals. A campfire will be made to cook our findings followed by quiet time for napping, reading, making nature crafts and music. Once refreshed, we play cooperative games and get wet to cool off the summer heat. By 4pm, we will have had our afternoon snack and be working on the final presentation for the parents. We close as we begin each day, with a calming meditation. Last year, by the end of the week, we were bonded with the spectacular nature here and each other. We shared our crafts and edible products with the parents and promised ourselves to meet again. Months later we heard that children were still identifying local plants, remembering what they are good for and how to make them into a safe, effective remedy. Much of the camp is child-centred. The campers will be given plenty of opportunity to make choices and show leadership. Counsellors are trained to be sensitive to each child’s needs. The pace is relaxed. Food is supplied from local and organic sources, avoiding white sugar, chemicals, bad fats and factory meat. Allergies can be creatively accommodated and recipes, product names and sources are shared. Before and after care is available and site visits are encouraged—bring your questions! For information and great photos, go to www.ecowellness.com/events. To register by the May 31st deadline, call Lori at 613-8391198. Katherine Willow N.D. directs Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre and enjoys developing programs for health, healing and sustainability for all ages. Sign up for our newsletter at www.ecowellness.com

Suzanne Powell – Spiritual speaker and author – makes debut in Canada

H

ave you heard the one about the Northern Irish woman whose presence guarantees thousands of people at her conferences across Spain and Latin America, but is barely known in the English speaking world? Okay, so there’s no comedy punchline, but Author and Zen Touch educator Suzanne Powell, has steadily become a spiritual phenomenon across the Spanish speaking world with 70,000 followers on Facebook and 8 million visits to her blog suzannepowell.blogspot.com.es. In June this year she will be making her first appearance in Canada at the Bronson Centre in Ottawa. Her course in Zen, not to be confused with the Buddhist tradition, is a healing system focused on controlling the nervous system through a technique called ‘Conscious breathing’, meditation and a simple practice called ‘Zen Touch’ in which energetic points or chakras are stimulated in order to eliminate blocks. This allows energy to flow freely once more, returning the body to a state of equilibrium. Suzanne’s life passion is to spread this technique throughout the world through her foundation La Fundación Zen, Servicio con Amor, which she does at no cost to the courses’ participants. The only thing she asks is that they must attend every session over two weekends, in order to be able to safely and effectively practice the technique.   In Spain her work is garnering interest within the medical profession at large, with her audience often numbering doctors and nurses, as well as people from every other walk of life. Doctor Socorro Navarrete, Doctor in Sports Medicine in Granada has herself completed the Zen Course and uses it in her clinical practice.

‘After learning the Zen Touch technique, I’ve had the opportunity to put it into practice with various pathologies in my daily work, being able to see at first hand the rapid results. These benefits have inspired me to start a medical research project in Granada studying the physiological changes brought about by this amazing technique.’ The course in June is the first to be imparted in the English speaking world and is expected to attract participants from across the globe. It will also be translated into Spanish. ‘I’m really excited to be coming to Canada’ says Suzanne. ‘The only other time I gave the course in English was in Barcelona and people came from as far away as Australia. Right now there’s a huge interest in this work and the hope it can give to those that haven’t found answers in mainstream medical treatment’. Suzanne has also written six books from subjects as diverse as conscious eating to a practical guide to cancer, based on her own experience of overcoming cancer as a young woman. Right now only ‘Dare to be your master’, inspired by her mother, has been translated into English.

Written and Performed by Mark Finnan - a one-man play, in which the aged Apostle John the Beloved meets with a group of early Christians on a hillside above Ephesus.

The ABCD‘s of Dentistry

AIRWAYS A good dental bite make a BETTER airways AND MUCH LESS SNORING. Our new role in dental diagnosis is to find airway problems early. Our lives are framed between our first breath and our last breath. The more forward your jaws grow and the wider your jaws the better you will breathe. Oxygen is good! ARCHES Your child’s UPPER ARCH OR palate should be encouraged to grow (BOTH naturally and orthodontically) to be as broad and as wide as possible. Remember the roof of your mouth is also the base of the nose and palatal arch growth encourages better nose and airway function. Arches used to grow to about 40mm wide yet now I measure arches that are 36mm, 34mm, 32mm, 30mm and 28mm wide and smaller. ALLERGIES can cause growth to diminish or distort in the jaws or facial area. The big 3 factors in allergies are Diet, Dust and Dander! Dietary allergies are well covered by Dr. Michel Lyons and Dr. Christine Laurel and we will give you a summary of their “Dietary Do’s and Don’ts”. Just contact our office for a copy. Dust is about environmental allergies. Dander is about pet dander causing allergic responses in children and adults.

Question: How can we make ourselves truly happy? SRI CHINMOY: If we want to make ourselves truly happy, perfectly happy, unimaginably happy, then we must develop the power of forgiveness. Forgiveness is a powerful divine force. Not only do we have to apply this forgiveness to people who have done wrong things to us, we also have to apply it most powerfully to ourselves. If we do not forgive ourselves for what we did ten years ago, then what will happen? Our guilty conscience will be like ten dead elephants that we have to drag along with us. We shall all the time be displeased with ourselves. If we do not forgive ourselves, then we are unable to go forward. We are only looking backward. We have to forgive our past; otherwise we cannot enter into the future. We have to forgive ourselves but with the proper understanding that we shall not make the same mistake again. We shall go forward. To forgive others is a difficult task. However, when somebody does something wrong, if we harbour negative thoughts against them or want to punish them, we will never find true satisfaction. When somebody says something hurtful to us, we have to know that our forgiveness-power is infinitely more powerful than the hurt we have received. If someone has insulted us and we also insult the person, it means that we are fighting back on the same level. Forgiveness is illumination. By forgiving others, we are illumining ourselves, our own enlarged, expanded Self. Our forgiveness-power is the most powerful force in God’s Creation. When a person does something wrong, we should sympathize with them or, on the strength of our oneness, we should tolerate it. Tolerance is not an act of weakness. Divine tolerance is even deeper than forgiveness. It is the conscious feeling or awareness of our oneness with others. So in order to be truly happy, unimaginably happy, infinitely happy, we have to apply forgiveness both to the world around us and to ourselves. Sooner than the soonest the miracle-power of forgiveness will give us happiness. Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Mother Meera Darshan in silence

by Reza Shadman he second time I received Mother’s blessing a subtle feeling moved me. It was the need of being closer to her. For a few months after the blessing I spent much time meditating on her, holding her picture close to me and calling her in my heart. Without me being aware, Mother held and supported me. That was a particularly difficult year, but what I am left with are the beautiful memories of sunny spring days lying on the grass, calling onto Mother’s light.

“When you become aware that there is something you need to understand, ask me inwardly, quite simply, with love and surrender, and I will teach it to you.” Answers, part 1 Mother Meera is an enlightened being and known to be the incarnation of the Divine Mother. Her purpose is to bring the light of God to Humanity and Earth. She does so through her blessing, Darshan. It is the bestowal of her light and love and it is done in silence. The Darshan hall is a meditative and sacred space. Everyone takes turn to meet Mother’s eyes in person and to receive her blessing. Mother holds anyone who reaches out to her in her light. “It is not necessary to devote or believe in me. If you are sincere to your guru, master, Absolute or the Divine, it is enough and I will strengthen you faith...If you need me or my help I will help you, whatever path you may follow. For me there is no difference. All paths lead to the same goal, that is, to realize the Divine.”Answers, part 1 Mother Meera’s Society is a non-profit and %100 volunteer based organization. The Society provides free education for children in India and travels to Canada and US to offer Darshan frequently. A group of us in the Gatineau-Ottawa region have come together to organize Darshan in our city. We are grateful to be of service to our spiritual community and welcome you with open heart on April 15 to experience Mother Meera’s light and love in person. Darshan is Free but you must register at www.mothermeera.ca We area also looking for volunteers to join our team. You will get a chance to experience the light that holds the Darshan hall in a different way. If interested please call reza at (613) 794-0677 or reza.shadman@gmail.com

Power – Passion – Purpose

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC umans don’t like change. They are generally afraid of stepping out of their comfort zone because they are content to be “safe”. For many, change equals taking risks and risk evokes feelings of fear and discomfort. However, if you want to grow as a person, if you want to achieve your goals, if you want to live “on purpose” and pursue your passions, you will need to break out of your comfort zone and conquer your fears. On May 29th at the RA Center, I will be one of three presenters for the Power Passion Purpose one-day transformational workshop. I will be joined by Lisa Anna Palmer who will facilitate The Passion Test for you. Jennifer Clark will guide you in finding your life purpose and help you unblock your points of resistance. My role will be to help you discover your “inner power” so that you can break out of your comfort zone and go after your goals. First off, decide that you want to change!

RHYTHM OF THE YEAR WITH TREE ESSENCES

any have shared lately how they just cannot get moving. They feel inspired for a moment and they want to create something new, move into a new city, a new career or lose that weight before summer, and so on and so on. But it stops right there, and it remains just a good idea. Tried visualisation, Tried notes on the fridge, Tried talking positive in the mirror and the list goes on.. You may wish to create all you want, but when it is time to move, the energy disperses elsewhere into MAYBE LATER, or IT IS NOT TIME or TOO TIRED and we are back into the wishing mode. Without going into the entire story as to what is blocking someone from JUST moving, I know for a fact that THE MAGIC OF TREES have done wonders for many clients who were stuck exactly there and wanted a kick-start! I recommend 2 essences: MASCULINE ENERGY - for clarity in action, integrity towards oneself, and CREATIVITY & INITIATIVE - for the pioneering spirit, going for it, and daring to venture.  M.J.B. from Quebec City shared her experience after using these 2 essences for 2 days: “I tell you, this cocktail is doing wonders. I’ve never been so productive and obstacles are removing themselves!!!”

Spring is Coming. Are You Ready?

I

n Traditional Chinese medicine, Springtime is a season of renewal. It is the transitional season, which brings us out of hibernation with a sense of hope and excitement. It is a time when all of nature is bursting forth with vigor, and a time to heal and prepare for the activities of summer. We are all faced with challenges in our lives, and there is no shortage of ideas as to how to deal with these challenges. With diets, pharmaceuticals, exercise regimes, vitamins and minerals, herbal remedies, counseling, psychics and energy healing modalities available to us, it is no wonder people feel overwhelmed. Many of the old adages remain true for me, such as “all things in moderation”, “keep it simple”, “treat the root cause, not the symptom”, and “only nature cures”. So what is at the heart of health? I have integrated all of my beliefs about health and healing into various integrated activities that are part of my three-day retreats on a private lake in the Ottawa valley.  These weekend retreats are designed to nourish and heal body mind and spirit. Health and wellbeing are achieved through a variety of activities, all in natural surroundings and at a relatively low cost. So what are the components I believe are necessary to well being? 1. Meditation: The first and foremost component of health is meditation. By starting from a point of stillness and centeredness we are able to reduce stress, take control of our lives and make good choices based on our own, innate knowledge. What does the calm body/mind/spirit tend to choose? 2. Diet: There is an old saying; “Vegans are like adults, really annoying until you become one, and you realize that they were right all along”. It has taken me years of research, meditation and experimentation to come to the conclusion that the modern food industry, in focusing on profits instead of health, has fed us questionable advice. Corporate entities like the meat, egg and dairy industries promote ill health and the destruction of the environment. The science is irrefutable. Eating animal products and man made junk food is creating the majority of our deadliest diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, obesity, high blood pressure as well as numerous related emotional problems such as depression and anxiety. (See Plant Pure Nation, Cowspiracy, Forks over Knives.) 3.Exercise: Moving your body does not need to be excessive, straining, or causing pain and stiffness. Yoga, walking, gardening, cycling and swimming are all examples of exercise that the body thrives on, increasing circulation, toning, detoxifying and maintaining a healthy metabolism. Massage and other bodyworks that re-connect us to our bodies are also helpful.

Or contact Derek Roche at the Natural Healing Clinic: Acupuncture - Nutrition - Allergies - Zero Balancing 2211 Riverside Drive, Ottawa derekroche01@gmail.com (613)-864-7511

4.Nature: A connection to nature is the last vital component to achieve health and wellbeing. We share a symbiotic relationship with the natural world. Fresh air, clean water, the sounds of birds and wind in the trees all give us a feeling of peace and tranquility, allowing us to release the many stresses of modern day life that keep our bodies in a chronic state of “dis-stress”. That’s it! It is simple, inexpensive and effective. There are no pills, special fad diets or extreme exercise, just simple truths about health, happiness and longevity. Meditation leads to good choices, which leads to a plant based diet, enjoyable exercise, communing with nature as well as connecting with other, like-minded beings. Derek Roche is an Acupuncturist, Nutritionist, Allergy specialist, and Zero Balancing practitioner with over twenty-five years experience working in Cambridge (UK), Halifax, St Catharines, and Ottawa. He is now located in Ottawa at 2211 Riverside Dr, suite 106. He also runs Natural Healing Retreats in the Ottawa valley in the Spring and Fall on a private lake that include Yoga, Meditation and a high quality plant based diet for small groups or individuals.

How to know if it’s ego: Free ego ID Kit by Cindy Teevens

I

often hear people ask, “How can I know if it’s ego?” Why do people want to know this? It seems to me it’s so that they can know whether or not to trust a thought, and to take action on it or not. This is not about ego in the conventional sense of the word, as in someone thinking themselves superior to others. Rather it’s about the distinction between a separate individual, the false idea of who you are (which is where all the problems arise from), and the universal, absolute one Self that all beings are. Like gold that has the form of a necklace or a ring, the names and forms are different, but it is all just gold. There is only the One, and each of us is that. Because we don’t know who we actually are, we make up conceptual ideas like being a “spiritual being having a human experience,” or of having a “soul” (I could never help but wonder which one I am, and what is the other?) Because our idea of ourself is as a separate being, we have the conceptual idea of separation, and so we have to make up concepts like being “connected,” in order to compensate for the concept of separation. But that’s not real.

You may have a temporary good feeling with the ephemeral thought that we are “connected,” but it’s shallow, unsatisfactory, and short-lived. We can live a long life with band-aid concepts, all the while deep within there is a nagging sense that something is off... something is ...missing. And that’s a good thing. It is calling you back to the first error, and to the real, and to Truth. Even the arising of sincere questioning is an indication that things are turning around. The problem with the question, “Is it ego?” is that it asserts or assumes that the ego is just a thought and/ or that ego is something separate from you, which you can therefore separately identify and see. It also implies that ego is real, and apart from you. However, ego is a hybrid, it is thought plus you--it is you contracting your powers onto mental objects, which are finite and temporary. It is mistaking yourself for what you are not; fleeting, temporary phenomena. And so we “create” and “re-create” versions of ourselves. None of which are lasting or true. The most difficult problem is that as long as you don’t know the final reality and Truth about who you are, then ego, or the false self, is practically always present. Even the one asking the question about ego, is ego-for your true Self would never ask this question. So is there any point in asking it?

Yes. Because even as the ego is present in apparent ignorance, so are you. You can separate and extract the false phenomena called ego from your Self. As the great sage Ramana Maharshi said, “The I removes the I, and remains the I.” The question serves as an opportunity to recognize thought as thought, and therefore also to recognize that no thought is who or what you are. It serves to highlight the gap between you and thought. That space and moment is the place where recognition of the final Truth of your real Self can be known. You can never know your true Self through, with, or as thought, because thought, by its very nature, is narrow and limited, while you are unlimited. You don’t arise in thought. Thought arises within you. How can a thought grasp or contain you? If you ever even merely glimpsed ego, in an instant the phenomenon would dissolve. That’s because like all experiences, it is temporary. It is so ephemeral that it disappears faster than clouds, which you can more easily watch dissipating. You and the ego cannot knowingly co-exist. If you actually held onto this false idea of yourself long enough to shine the light of Truth upon it, it would self-destruct forever, unable to rise again. That will be the end of separation, the end of self and other--and you’d not even be capable of asking “Is it ego?” because there is no “it,” and no wrong identification, so therefore no separate self (ego) to ask. Even when it’s a feeling, ego is likely present. To whom does the feeling pertain to? Is there a sense of an individual; a “me, I, mine,” against others or the world? Asking the question, “Is it ego?” is one way of turning away from the “world” or “other” and turning toward yourself, and doing so creates opportunities to make the greatest discovery a human being could ever make. This discovery will put an end to the nagging existential questions you probably swept under the carpet, like almost everyone else, years ago. You do have a built-in guidance system for extracting the phenomena of ego, or false self, from your actual, real, absolute, and eternal, Self. The first step is beginning to discern what is ego, and what it is not. So when is it ego? Due to unconsciously not knowing the difference, how can you tell? I’ve put together a quick reference flowchart; an ego identification kit to help you get started.

If You Are Going Through Hell Keep Going Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psycho-spiritual counsellor, Coach, Healer, Teacher

I

saw this saying on a poster in my friend, P.N.’s house several years ago and it made a profound impression on me. As a counsellor I am only too aware that many of my clients are going through a very hard time right now with the intense shifting energy we are experiencing. Anxiety, depression, rage, intense health challenges and difficulty sleeping are the most common issues I am seeing. There is a reason for this and, as challenging and frightening as it feels, it is a very positive experience for our overall spiritual growth and development. Unfortunately, it can actually feel like we are going through hell. I say -keep going because sometimes it can feel so overwhelming there can be a tendency to want to give up and sometimes even to want to leave. We did sign up for this and believe it or not, painful as it may be, it is purposeful and for your highest good, not only your soul level, but your human 3D level as well. So what to do when you feel like you are going through physical, emotional or spiritual hell? I am a bit of a broken record on this but the answer is: DO YOUR

This means get to the core of the issues that are plaguing you and heal them once and for all. Until you get to the very root of the issue, it cannot heal. The tools I use for myself and in my work are the wonderful Inner Child Work pioneered by John Bradshaw in the late 80’s and the quantum healing/balancing/ work of our new( Doug Henderson and I) technology which removes emotional and subconscious programming at the quantum and DNA level. Developed by Dr. Kathy Forti, (check her out on You Tube), it also removes layers of oppression from present and past lives. Combine these two therapies for an effective clearing of limiting belief systems and damaging programming that keep us from being the Divine Human we came into this incarnation to realize. Dr. Forti’s book Fractals of God talks about how she developed this technology and is a wonderful, enlightening read. If you would like a demo on the new technology developed by Dr. Kathy Forti or to book a session for counselling or our new technology please call me at 613-236-8852 or email at 2belight1@gmail.com.

Breast Massage

By Karen Munro-Caple, RMT or many women their breasts are symbolic of their sexuality and motherhood. Culturally it has become a loaded topic. Are they too big, too small, the right shape? For a variety of reasons, we can as women forget they are an integral part of our healthy bodies and as a result, sometimes ignore the tissue needs. Breasts are often squeezed into tight bras and clothing which is not conducive to lymph and blood flow. Over time, symptoms of congestion and swelling, tenderness or pain can occur. Massage for breast tissue health is important for childbearing, premenstrual and menopausal discomfort, injury, post surgical symptoms and cancer treatment. It is also highly recommended prior to a mammogram. Because of the sensitive nature of breast massage, your comfort and questions are assured as follows: • All your questions are carefully answered • Special informed consent is required • You can refuse treatment at any point before or during a session • Best with oil on skin but there are other options as well, like massaging through a T shirt or sheet if it is preferred  • I use gentle hands-on manipulation to increase drainage and circulation. • Sensitive working of scars to decrease pain and reduce tethering to other surrounding tissue • Hydro therapy, warm towel wraps • The areola and nipple are never touched • A full back, shoulder, arm and neck massage is included

7 ANGEL WISDOMS Channelled by Lisa Virtue

1. To thine own self be true. • Your inner-being is most important. Do not allow the judgments of others to diminish you. Follow your true instinct. 2. Know that you are a worthy being. • You are cherished by the entire universe. You are exquisitely unique, adding to the wisdom of all creation with every moment that you exist. 3. All are one. • The only thing that truly exists is love. Everything else is a creation in order to understand more fully what that is. All shades provide information. 4. All live according to their individual journeys. • Each being is living a journey customized for its soul’s purpose. Be careful not to judge what you cannot know. 5. Allow others to be themselves. • It is their journey they are on, right for them. Focus your awareness on yours. Do as you can within your own self. Offer comfort and advice as feels inspired, but allow their choices to be their own. 6. Live your experience. • Everything you do is based on the experiences you’ve had. Trust that you do your best in each moment with what you have available. Move forward when new understandings come instead of judging the past. 7. Be yourself. • Show your true self in all the ways that bring you great joy. Express the love that is your true being. Lisa Virtue is an Energy Healer and Angel Channel.
