Find and Fulfill Your Life Purpose




aybe finding your life purpose is easy if you have special gifts like Picasso or Einstein. On the other hand, if you are still asking yourself what you want to be when you grow up, the process starts to seem less clear. Even if it takes a wee bit of effort, it’s still a question worth answering. Numerous studies suggest that finding work is in alignment with your purpose is more motivating and satisfying than any pay increase. If you’re still searching, it’s time to discover your mission!! Finding Your Life Purpose: 1. Calm your mind. Ease yourself into a creative state of mind. Meditate or take a long walk through the park. Soak in a warm bath or read poetry. Your thoughts become more expansive when you take a step back from daily concerns. 2. Identify your strengths. Focus on what you do well. Think about the kind of compliments you receive or tasks that come easily to you. 3. Keep a journal. Writing about your search can help you organize your thoughts. Over time, you may recognize patterns that will guide you in moving forward. Fulfilling Your Life Purpose: 1. Be flexible. You may be surprised by some of your discoveries. You may even find that you have more than one purpose. Try to keep an open mind. 2. Set a daily intention. Keep your purpose fresh in your mind. Figure out something you can do each day to bring you closer to your goals. Consistent effort builds momentum, and small victories add up.


3. Seek support. Pursuing your purpose is rewarding and challenging. It helps to have partners on your side. Ask your friends and family for the assistance you need. Team up with others who share your vision. Being driven by purpose will make you happier and more successful. Examine your experiences and discover how to share your unique gifts.

veryone loves to be motivated. One thing that helps with motivation is a positive quote. Do you have a personal go-to quote that motivates or brightens up your day? Why not post it. There are a few ways to do it. You can share one that you see on your feed, tweet out the text of the quote, or create a graphic of the quote. Sometimes the simple ways work wonders. Not everything needs to be on a graphic. Simple text can garnish focus on your post as it has the potential of standing out among all the graphics being posted. Go a bit beyond that, explain why it is your go-to quote. This small yet effective explanation allows a bit of insight into who you are. Explanations on why you like a quote is also a great first step in sharing YOU on social media. This is key to the beginnings of building relationships on social media. Add a simple hashtag to it as well. For instance, #Quote #QuoteOfTheDay #QOTD are hashtags commonly used and can help you gain reach. Beyond that choose hashtags that are about the quote such as #positivevibesonly Did you know that you can have up to 30 quotes on one Instagram post? Well you can. Be careful to count them out though otherwise your post will post with no text write up. When that happens, unfortunately it’s best to start over and rewrite everything and make a stellar impact rather than let that slip by.

Authentic Tapestry Ian Prattis


was humbled by the reviews of “Our World is Burning: My Views on Mindful Engagement.’ Critics reinforced my attempt to create an authentic tapestry about the state of the world and how we could best engage with it. I could only draw from my experience and hope that would be enough for the reader. My approach to life comes through experience, crises, difficulties and joys that may have common ground with many readers. To the best of my ability, I endeavour to follow Gandhi’s principles of ahimsa and the teachings on mindfulness. These are the guidelines and foundations for my peace and environmental activism. I live very simply as a planetary activist. I am a Zen teacher, also a recognized guru in India. My initial task is to refine my own consciousness to be a vehicle to chart an authentic path. The focus on daily mindfulness from my Zen practice enables me to be still and clear. From this energy the poems and chapters emerge. My activism is a result of my internal work. Steadiness, clarity and compassion are within me. I prefer the still-point, uncoloured by the excess of ego and desire for recognition. Such a stillpoint permits me to be free in my own sovereignty, no matter what I am doing. It also propels me to serve the planet and humanity by creating bridges and pathways of harmony. As an anthropologist, I was fortunate to encounter many story tellers across North America – Dene, Hopi, Ojibwa, Algonquin, Inuit – to mention a few. Their poetic recounting of myths and history had a deep impact upon me. I would say that without poetry, cultures implode. Over a period of thirty years, four extraordinary medicine people enhanced my process of remembering the power of the poetic voice. Through their mentoring I learned how to reconfigure my understanding of time, place and consciousness. I also chose to listen to the


feminine voice of Earth Wisdom rather than the multitude of competing voices in my deep unconscious. This shows up in my writing. My books are epic tales that seamlessly weave together to create inspiration for a wide range of fellow spiritual seekers, environmentalists, Generation X and Y, feminists, students and academics alike. I recognized early on that global citizens are staring into the abyss – yet instead of being eaten up by it all, I say to them: “Awaken Spiritually,” for that transforms everything. We have made our world an unpredictable beast because we fail to work with it intelligently. We have to take back control of ourselves and this is a spiritual matter. Turning the switch of awakening seems to be a good idea right now. That is the prod and direction of my poems and books. We just need to touch the sacred in ordinary experiences of daily life to find the courage and determination to transform. My writing delivers a vigorous message about personal transformation in order to become different stewards of the earth and society. In the Sixteen Essays of Our World is Burning, I offer realitybased information that is in high demand in today’s society, which provides the potential for my projects to become fresh, new icons for today’s hungry culture. Hungry, that is, for authentic transformation. It takes training, practice, intelligence and creative vision to find the drive to create a tangible spirit of cooperation, the willingness to share and be supportive, and learning how to cross the bridges of conflict. This thread of understanding finds a place in every essay in Our World is Burning. You can order “Our World Is Burning” ($19.95) and receive one FREE autographed copy of New Planet New World; or Redemption; or Trailing Sky Six Feathers; or Failsafe; plus a Meditation CD as a thank you. Indicate which item you would like, though it depends on inventory what can be sent. http://ianprattis.com/OurWorldIsBurning.html

Thoughts in Meditation

By Rupa racticing meditation help us to have a sharp and clear mind. A lot of people might experience being overwhelmed with thoughts and feel more stressful instead of experiencing clarity. We can look at meditation as a rehearsal of life. It gives us a chance to see the pattern of our mind and change the pattern if we need to. Like physical body strength training, we cannot expect it to be easy. The flow of thoughts are like a river. Practicing meditation is like sitting on the bank of the river, observing the flow of the water that comes and goes, but not being affected by the water. Sometimes we see big waves, sometimes we see through the water; sometimes we see leaves floating on top of the water. No matter what we see, we just keep observing, not trying to change anything, not trying to stop anything. Gradually, we will be able to not be pulled by the thoughts and not agitated by the change of the thoughts. The repetition of meditation helps to sharpen the mind so we can see more clearly. At the same time, meditation helps expand the capacity of the brain so we can receive more information without being overwhelmed. The process can be hard and long but the reward is extraordinary -we are able to stay calm in any situation in our life with the power of mind.

Depending on our capability we can choose to go swimming in a pool, at a lake, in a river or in the ocean. Of course, at different places we will have different experiences. But no matter where we are, we need to go into the water. We know that the more we are in the water, the more we know what to do and how to play in the water. With practice, we will be able to enjoy all the activities in the water instead of worrying about drowning. Similarly, meditation trains our mind to face stress so when things happen in life we have some idea of how to deal with them. Rupa’s Chinese background and training has given her a natural understanding of ancient eastern wisdom. Living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop her practice in a modern western way. Her book A Complete Yoga Manual is a bridge between east and west, modern and ancient, theory and practice. A Complete Yoga Manual by Ivy XieMcIsaac (Rupa) is available at Singing Pebble Books.

» Lynne Cardinal

by Stefania Allevato or over 30 years Lynne Cardinal has been offering stress management, resilience and burnout prevention workshops in the government and private sector. She is a consulting hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in hypnosis innovative techniques and weight loss. She is certified in Collective and Individual Trauma Work and Communication by Thomas Hübl. Recently, Lynne chatted with local writer and editor, Stefania Allevato, regarding the benefits of hypnosis and meditation. Q - Provide some personal background regarding what led you to hypnosis and how long you have been practicing. A - Inherently, I have always sensed a vast possibility and great potential within us. As a curious individual I went on to explore philosophy, psychology, meditation, stress management and later on hypnosis. I was inspired by it all as I could see how much we can help ourselves by developing a balanced lifestyle through daily meditation and by shifting our thinking patterns to more positive ones. Over 10 years ago, a friend psychiatrist trained in hypnosis told me that she could see me doing hypnosis. Interested, I soon took my first training in hypnosis even though I started with a skeptical mind. Yet early on in my training I realized how this modality is brilliant, effective and that I could adapt it in my own way. We can help ourselves, maybe more than we know. I saw hypnosis as a direct route to helping ourselves on many levels, essentially achieving a natural life balance. I saw that I could make this modality my own, integrating the multitude of training I had to make it unique and highly efficient. Q - Explain how your work helps people learn to have life balance. A - We are often conflicted between an inner, deeper wisdom and a more shallow less logical part of our mind. We are always making a choice between those two in terms of our thoughts and actions. The shallow part of our mind is filled with contradictions that are complex and unreasonable. Haven’t we all experienced a conflict between our deeper self that whispers from within, “You are making mountains out of this!” Yet the more superficial worrisome part of our mind replies, “Yes, but what if....”

Interview with Lynne Cardinal


Empower Your Life-Path!

So how to achieve life balance will depend on working directly with this inner conflict to achieve clarity. For example, hypnosis is helpful when we realize that we need to respect our limits, but we have difficulty doing so because we feel blocked. We empower clarity and our objectives while freeing ourselves of inner obstacles. Hypnosis helps us to access this new perspective and implement it in our daily lives. It is also helpful in letting go of the past and healing deep parts of ourselves. That is much more difficult from the shallow part of our mind.

Q - Explain how hypnosis works and is it available to anyone regardless of personality type, etc? A - When it comes to hypnosis we need to forget what’s on TV or the over dramatizations found online. These pictures are based on show business and are far from what I do. To generate real lasting changes requires more advanced techniques based on respecting the objectives and the process needed by the individual. In the deep, relaxed state generated by hypnosis, we become receptive to our needs and objectives so we can say that shifts and changes happen naturally and from within. For hypnosis to work it simply requires an open mind and a desire to move forward. However, hypnosis isn’t recommended if an individual has a mental illness such as bipolar. Q - Are people under hypnosis always in control? A - As a trained professional in hypnosis I help clients get back control.

Q - How can hypnosis help people with stress? A - Generally, hypnosis is deeply soothing and relaxing. When we have definite areas in our lives where we feel stress then we can directly address those areas with hypnosis based on one’s needs and issues. We first explore the cause of stress and then we shift our perspective, let’s say into a more relaxed way to deal with it. For example, if public speaking generates stress then it is possible to see public speaking as a stimulating and positive experience as opposed to a dreadful one. Part 2 of the Q & A will be in next month’s issue of Tone. To learn more about Lynne please check out kaivalya. ca, or by email: info@kaivalya.ca or call 613.836.2355.

Question: How can we use the breath to help us meditate? here is a traditional system in India of controlled breathing which is called pranayama. Prana means the life-breath and yama means control. When you meditate, the very first exercise you can practice is to repeat once, as you breathe in, the Name of God, the Christ or whomever you adore, or a mantra. This breath does not have to be long or deep. Hold your breath and repeat the same name four times. And when you breathe out, repeat two times the name or mantra that you have chosen. You inhale for one count, hold your breath for four counts and exhale for two counts, inwardly repeating the sacred name. If you simply count the numbers — one-four-two — you do not get any vibration or inner feeling. But when you say the Name of God, immediately God’s divine qualities enter into you, and when you hold your breath, these divine qualities rotate inside you, entering into all your impurities, obscurities, imperfections and limitations. When you breathe out, these same divine qualities carry away all your undivine and unprogressive qualities. As a beginner, start with a one-four-two count. When you become mature in your breathing, you will be able to do it to a count of four-sixteen-eight: breathing in for four counts, holding the breath for sixteen, and breathing out for eight. But this has to be done very gradually. During your meditation, always try to breathe in as slowly and quietly as possible, so that if you place a tiny thread right in front of your nose it will not even move. Then you will see that your meditation is going to be deep and your mind will be very calm and quiet. As well, you can try to feel that you are breathing in not just air but cosmic energy. This energy is purifying your body, vital, mind and heart. Then, when you breathe out, feel that you are breathing out all the rubbish inside you — all your undivine thoughts, obscure ideas and impure actions. Anything inside you that you do not want to claim as your own, feel that you are exhaling Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Holy Fire Reiki with Reiki Wanderlust Germaine De Peralta


or those who think Reiki is as old as the Queen of England and have moved it to their back pocket in exchange for “snazzier, newer” healing modalities: Listen up. The breaking news is that the classic “meat and potatoes” Usui-Tibetan Reiki has undergone a massive spiritual and energetic transformation. Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, Usui Tibetan Reiki (upon which many other Reiki’s are based on), has resurrected into a more powerful and much higher frequency version – Holy Fire Reiki! Holy Fire Reiki has arrived from a higher level of consciousness in alignment with the higher frequencies of the times; a period calling us today to raise our vibrations and become our best selves in our daily lives. In an interview with President of the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT), William Lee Rand, he said, “If you liked Usui-Tibetan Reiki, I want you to know that I am the one who created it in 1989 and that since then, I was focused on allowing Reiki energy to become more effective and this evolved into the development of Holy Fire Reiki which took place in January 2014.” William Lee Rand, who trained me in Holy Fire Reiki, is the world’s most well-known Reiki guru alive, and is also president of the world’s largest Reiki organization, the ICRT (reiki.org). Mr. Rand elaborated that during a spiritual experience in January 2014, he was given a new form of Reiki and was guided to teach it. He was told to call it Holy Fire Reiki and began teaching and practicing it exclusively. It has spread like wildfire in the United States and is just beginning to come through in Canada. For more information see reiki.org.

Here is what Holy Fire Reiki can do for you on a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical level: • It works continuously even when not thinking about it, and spontaneously heals issues as they come up. • Heals deeply and quickly without distress. • Heals relationships and interactions with others. • Releases worry and replaces it with a sense of safety in a pronounced way. • Spontaneously provides guidance in every level of life experience. • Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy, such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, trust, joy, peace and so forth. • One of the most wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved. This is a deep and refined feeling that is very nurturing. • Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective. • Respects free will. • Qualities present in Usui Holy Fire Reiki Levels I and II become more pronounced in the Usui Holy Fire II ART/Master and Holy Fire II Karuna classes. For Usui Reiki Masters and Karuna® Masters here’s what it can do for you on the practical level: • The challenging Usui-Tibetan attunement methods using the Violet Breath, contracting the Hui Yin, and activating the symbols yourself are no longer needed. To replace that, Experiences, Placements and Ignitions – which are “meditation-like” experiences enable students to receive Holy Fire Reiki. • Because this is a much simpler and effective method, it enables the Reiki Master to teach and give Holy Fire Reiki energies to larger groups of students and, thus, expand their practice. • Because there is no teacher-to-student physical contact anymore, any potential lower vibrations of a Reiki Master is not passed on to the student and allows the Source/Creator/God/Universal Life Force to grace the student’s spirit and soul directly, opening up the student to receive Holy Fire Reiki. • The Reiki Masters’ healing energies grow significantly after receiving Holy Fire II Reiki. Here is what some Holy Fire II Reiki Masters are saying: “I find I really like the Holy Fire energy. I am using it multiple times daily and I am feeling major, positive shifts in my life occurring in areas I have long had difficulty with. Holy Fire energy seems to fulfill the promise of Reiki to make life more positive, bountiful and fulfilling…My business is improving, and so are my relationships. I take my joys in life more seriously,” said Jessica Miller.

Another Holy Fire Reiki Master shared how it has affected her clients. Tracey Houchins, shares, “I have used Holy Fire with all my clients since becoming attuned. Holy Fire is offering deep healing and my clients are telling me they are feeling REALLY GOOD, renewed, empowered, cleansed, refreshed, motivated, and grateful even more than usual.” Collen Benelli adds: “I have experienced great bliss and love from the Holy Fire energy. I found that instead of focusing on my issues and worries about it, I asked for its full power of love to fill me. It was such a big energy, I could hardly hold the power of it in the moment. That love seems to permeate the issues and they simply heal in love.” About myself, I’m a Usui Holy Fire II ART/Master and Holy Fire II Karuna® Reiki Master and trained with William Lee Rand (http://www.reikimembership. com/MembershipListing.aspx?state=ON). I am also a member of the Canadian Reiki Association. Previous to learning Holy Fire II Reiki with Rand, I became an Usui-Tibetan Reiki Master under Maria Trumbach and an Usui Holographic Reiki Master/ Teacher with Julie Desmarais, both Ottawa-based teachers. With all due respect to all the different Reiki’s, the Universal Life Force is calling us to look above and beyond. This is an optimal time that Usui-Tibetan Reiki and other Reiki practitioners seriously consider answering the call to learn more and/or upgrade their Reiki frequencies and improve techniques by learning Holy Fire Reiki. One will also reap its gifts and benefits! Students who have taken Reiki Levels 1 and 2 from any Reiki lineage, could take the Usui Holy Fire II ART/ Master/Teacher class. For those who are already Reiki Masters from any lineage, learning Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki Master/Teacher would be the best option. When you take the Holy Fire 2 Karuna® Reiki Master/Teacher class you will learn to teach all levels of Holy Fire Reiki from Level 1 to Master/Teacher to Karuna Master/ Teacher. Yes, in one fell swoop. I will be teaching all levels of Holy Fire and I have listed advanced dates to allow students to plan. All classes are three full days in a row.


Usui Holy Fire II ART/Reiki Master/Teacher (formerly Reiki Level 3 and Master): May 18-20 (9 am to 6:00 pm) July 27-29 (9 am-6 pm) September 7-9 (9 am to 6 pm) October 12-14 ( 9 am to 6 pm)

Holy Fire II Karuna® Reiki Master/Teacher (all levels of Karuna Reiki): May 25-27 (9 am-6 pm) July 6-8 (9 am-6 pm) August 3-5 (9 am-6 pm) August 24-26 (9 am-6 pm) September 21-23 (9 am-6 pm) October 26-28 (9 am-6 pm)

***Class is $925 (Tax included plus ICRT manuals and certificates). Payment plans are available. This is a great price considering these classes cost $1,600 in the US and is also lesser in cost than learning Level 3 and the Master Level separately. But this is also an option. All levels of Karuna Reiki are taught together now. ***Classes will be held at the RW Healing Centre at 55 Metropole Private, Ottawa, ON. K1Z 1E7 (Westboro Village). I will teach two to seven people in each class. ***Please contact me at least three weeks before the class to register: germaine_de_peralta@yahoo.com I teach Usui Holy Fire II Reiki, Levels 1 and 2, on an ongoing basis and on-demand.

hy do some go to yoga therapy? Some do. If you do, good. If not, good. I am all accepting. You may receive yoga therapy by being in the same room as me. It’s not exactly seen. You must be allowed to experience. If so, you will attain to higher consciousness. You may. It’s a personal experience between a yoga teacher and a yoga student. It’s very important to feel free to be a person who is allowed to express themselves in a safe environment. This is why yoga therapy works. It’s not about me, the therapist. It’s always about you. The seeker. If it is, you will be lighter than a rose petal sinking down in a bed of roses. You will be given a rose bath without water and a rose will appear shiny and new, calm, and faces will appear will suddenly seem lovelier to you and you will begin to know a secret.

Taking Responsibility

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, RRC, CRC he life that we live today reflects all the experiences that we have faced in the past. We can choose to learn from these experiences or to ignore the messages that are wrapped inside of them. It took me some time to comprehend this issue and when I did, it was life changing. You see, it’s all about the choices that we make when faced with any situation. Every event is neutral until we show up and start reacting to it based on our view of the world. Let’s suppose for one minute that you did not bring any drama to that situation and instead, chose to deal with it in an objective manor. This is hard for us to do because of all the social, religious and cultural influences that have shaped us into who we are today. One aspect of taking responsibility is deciding how you are going to act or react when faced with a situation that presents itself. If the objective is to create the desired life that you want, then choose to behave in a manor that will support that outcome. Have a look at how you behaved in the past when faced with similar situations. What kind of outcome did you get? Newton’s 3rd law helps us understand this concept perfectly: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Take responsibility for the past by acknowledging your strengths and your shortcomings. More importantly,

The Ego’s Defense of Feeling Unsafe by Amâeil Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.


here are many different ego defenses that keep us from embracing our highest expression. One that is most common is “feeling unsafe”. Feeling unsafe manifests in varied ways. We mistrust others and avoid emotional intimacy. We can push people away to pre-empt being hurt again, and even isolate. We may prefer to control life with a rigid routine. We may be demanding, hypervigilant, or hypersensitive. We can feel confused, edgy or hold body tension. We can feel unsafe for countless reasons. Perhaps our childhood home felt unstable because Dad would explode in unexpected rages, or there was never enough money for our basic needs. Abrupt immersion into a new school was overwhelming. Becoming lost as a child, witnessing an accident, suddenly losing a parent, being frequently ill, or abused, and more, can all create feelings of insecurity and uncertainty, and remain so if the impact remains unhealed. Our collective and personal timelines hold plenty of trauma. As we spiritually evolve into higher dimensions of consciousness, our memories can return, or we can feel triggered without having a conscious context. Experiencing horrific scenes, being persecuted for knowing truth, feeling abandoned by God, alien abduction, or cataclysmic planetary explosions can be the cause.

Is your inner child feeling safe?

Healing the origin of any trauma reclaims a sense of safety. Yet, there is one tool you can immediately access. While breathing deeply into the belly, become fully aware of what you are noticing with each of your five senses. This ‘now’ consciousness pulls you out of fearful, future thoughts or past pain, and reprograms the autonomic nervous system that took over when you were under threat. If you do this often, it can calm and help you feel safe again. Also engaging the senses this way as you recall safe, joyful or comforting memories can restore your resilience.

Dentistry’s a Game - Part 1 Awareness, Alimentation, Airway, Autonomics, Alignment, Appearance By Dr. George Paul Greenacre 1) Our A-Game starts with AWARENESS! Few people understand how important your oral health is to your total health. Think of the top functions of our mouths from our first breath to our suckling on the breast to the very ability to sing, speak, swallow, spit, kiss, taste, and make faces at each other. Someone once said that whatever the mind does not know the eyes cannot see. We all need to see our mouths differently because the number one cause of death is inflammation and most inflammation in our lives is associated with our mouths. If we have one of many different gum diseases then we have inflammation. If we have tooth disease we can have different sources of inflammation. If we have a bad bite, then C fibers of the trigeminal nerves give off Substance P which is another major source of inflammation. A bad bite leads to snoring and this means we start to have less oxygen during our healing time. Finally, this can lead to sleep apnea and either a stroke or a heart attack Become aware of the great value of your oral health and the key is acidity or alkalinity. 2) ACIDITY /ALKALINITY AND TRACE MINERAL ALIMENTATION or how well we eat. This is the key to tooth nutrition and bone nutrition according to Sweden’s Dr. Alfred Aslander. The human face is shrinking because we do not eat enough trace minerals to make our palates grow as wide as our ancestors’ palates used to grow. WE EAT TOO MANY REFINEDCARBS, BAD SUGARS, BAD GRAINS AND BAD FATS. Palates are shrinking. We measure palatal widths every day in our practices. A great broad wide palate is rare today because we have stopped eating bone marrow and bone broth soups. TRACE MINERALS are being forgotten as part of our food heritage. Early humans used those stone axes to break open long bones and eat the super food called bone marrow. We lived near the oceans and lakes and ate lots of fish and fish bones which gave us minerals. All hunter-gatherers scavenged bones from other animal kills and appreciated the bone marrow as a trace mineral treat. Today faces do not grow because we have forgotten trace minerals in our food systems and we have the same soils supporting our fruits and vegetable crops that grew the foods for our world 100 years ago when we were only 1billion people on the planet. Now we are over 7 billion seeking the same sustenance from the same thin crust of soils. Our soils are overworked and micronutrient-depleted. So, to get the same nutrition our grandparents had, we

DowntownDowntown and Alta Vista locations location need to eat 4 to 6 of today’s oranges to equal one orange our grandparents ate. Teeth are the most mineral dense structures in our bodies and we can have perfect cavityfree teeth if we supplement our diets with more trace minerals from mammal bone meal or fish bone meal sources. The Vikings did what they did because they ate the small Baltic herring baked as a dietary staple which gave them excellent trace mineral nutrition. Vikings and most hunter-gather groups never had osteoporosis problems and they grew great faces, generation after generation. Then we moved to the farm and started using more and more grains as staples in our diets. There is a lot to be said for farmers, but that is when we reduced our bone marrow intake and then our faces and airways began to shrink. Simple primitive diets are to be honoured. When I see parents raised on simple primitive third world diets I see beautiful wide arches. Then when I see their children raised on North American food, I see more decay and more narrow palates. Sixty per cent of kids today need orthodontics and over eighty percent of kids have tooth decay because we do not have enough trace minerals in our face-growing and tooth-growing years. Make trace minerals available to your children and you can reverse tooth decay, shrinking faces, snoring, osteoporosis and shrinking airways. We can grow better kids with better nutrition. Better food choices also mean fewer metabolic diseases for the next generation. Let us build better kids! How? Here is a simple idea for busy parents. Just throw a little osteobroth powder from Herb and Spice or Rainbow Foods or Whole Foods into your kids’blender drinks. Part 2 next issue of Tone...

Cornelis Reiman

International Healer from Thailand


ornelis Reiman is a healer at a remote temple in Thailand and has an international following. He wrote about his experience in a series of books that are on Amazon. He takes readers from when he knew nothing to when he did everything to cleanse people at physical, mental, spiritual and karmic levels. How did a respected corporate advisor, all of a sudden, become a spiritual healer? How did he end up experiencing otherworldly things that, not long before, would have been dismissed by him as impossible? These intriguing questions are addressed in ‘How I Became a Temple Healer’, the first book in his Healer series. Cornelis Reiman speaks of what he did as a temple healer, doing so in a direct way that delivers his accounts along with occasional comment as to possible amazement, surprise or disbelief. This approach proves to be very effective in that readers are left to draw their own opinions. More so, that straightforward method of presentation adds to the overall effect because it gives further colour and texture to a remarkable story. Increasingly, the unfolding of this fanciful tale becomes very real, and the reader is taken into a way of living that seems impossible for anyone to fabricate,


let alone experience. Yet, it is put in full view by what Cornelis Reiman provides. Specifically, he shows no constraint in painting broad and fine brush strokes of an extraordinarily vivid picture that very few of us ever see, or could even imagine. Consider the prospect of psychic surgery, seeing inside the organs and bodies of people, speaking with angels and have these heavenly beings help. Then there is speaking with animals, in addition to telepathic conversation with people, not to forget clairaudience and clairvoyance. Of course, healing people at the physical, psychological, spiritual, and karmic levels cannot be forgotten. Certainly, the Healer books are for people with open and enquiring minds, especially for anyone who has an inclination for spiritual topics. As such, with its eyeopening frankness, Cornelis Reiman touches the hearts and souls of many people. Therefore, this is not an experience to be missed. “I went with my wife to a Buddhist temple in rural Thailand. There, spirits and serious illnesses were removed from sick people by healers. Ridiculous? That’s what I thought at the time. Then, I became a temple healer, too.”

What Is Hypnosis? Part 1 of 2

By Luke Michael Howard PhD here are a lot of definitions of hypnosis out there. I always say to my clients that I used to spend the first 45 minutes at the very first session with a new client explaining what hypnosis was and explaining what hypnosis wasn’t. I noticed their eyes started to glaze over like a glazed donut, and I don’t know if that’s because they were hypnotized or if that was because they were just bored. I still got results, but I wasn’t quite sure. So now I like to just explain what hypnosis is to my clients in one sentence and then I go into practical applications. Basically, we just simply go into hypnotic phenomenon from there which is something that I learned from Jason Linette. Hypnosis in one sentence - automatic response, in spite of conscious awareness. So,what does that mean? It means that something is happening automatically to you, to the person being hypnotized. Now they’re aware that something is happening, i.e. if I’m doing magnetic fingers. If you’ve ever seen me do that, or another hypnotist, where somebody will have their hands out



in front of them, they’ll separate their fingers about a centimeter or an inch apart. Then the hypnotist will give the client participating in hypnosis a suggestion that their fingers will come together like two powerful magnets, and the fingers come together. The person who’s been hypnotized is aware of what’s going on because their eyes are opening, they are looking at the gap between their fingers. Yet something seemingly is happening automatically. They’re not in a weird out-of-body experience or state. They’re aware of something going on. Yet something is seemingly happening involuntarily to their body, to their mind. So that’s the best and most unpretentious description I ever found of hypnosis that in my model of the world makes sense. With most people, it’s just a sense of involuntariness that yes, I’m aware that my arm is raising all by itself. Yes, I’m aware that this guy is talking to me, yet my problem that was just an eight is now a one. Yes, I am aware that this hypnotist said feel this and suddenly now I’m falling backwards or to the side. Yes, I’m aware that something’s going on, yet I’m seemingly not in control. Now control is a whole other podcast topic probably we will have to cover at some point in the

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis Complete Mind Therapy organization, is a Smoking Cessation Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 16 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 smokers into empowered Non-Smokers in just one hour. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 95% success rate. This is incredible when you think that patches are only about 16% successful. We are so confident in the success of this treatment that we offer a free backup session for the remaining 5%. In fact, if after the session any one should need an extra session, it’s theirs, FREE OF CHARGE.” 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 Stop Smoking 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. Many celebrities, professional business people, nurses and housewives have benefited from stopping smoking with hypnosis, SO CAN YOU! The good news is that this incredible method of stopping smoking is available locally. The bad news there usually is a two or three week waiting list for an appointment – but even the medical profession believes it’s worth waiting for.

“I walked out a nonsmoker!” Caroline had been a smoker for the majority of her lifenearly 30 YEARS! She had tried every type of stop-smoking aid possible, tried using ‘will power’ to quit cold turkey but to no avail-that is until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promise I will totally do a video testimonial for you in the future though, as the hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I not smoked...I have not even WANTED to!!! It really is amazing” Check out more testimonial videos on: www.lukenosis.com and you can contact Dr. Luke at LUKEnosis to arrange an appointment at 613-8785874.


future and the illusion of control. And if you go back to the old days and old definitions of hypnosis, one that was around for many, many years, and still is now, was, I believe, credited to Dave Ellman who said that hypnosis is the bypassing of the critical factor. This means that you’ve got this logical part of your mind in this metaphor that’s responsible for facts, for figures, and for logic. But I tell my clients if you could logic your way out of this problem, you wouldn’t have called me, would you? So, all of our emotions, all of our problems, all of us involuntariness, all the control of our body, the endocrine system and blood flow, etc., is located in the unconscious mind. Some people think or like to call that the subconscious mind, I use unconscious. It’s all the same thing in my model of hypnosis and in my model of the world with people. Basically, we’re bypassing that critical fact that on one hand you’re trying to take this all in because you’re thinking, “Well, if I remember everything that the hypnotist is saying to make logical sense inside my head so I can fit it in the box, I can fit it in a box inside my head that’s marked hypnosis”. Everything that we come in contact with in this world, every concept that is outside of us, we’ve got a concept of what is inside of us. So often times when people have a problem grasping the concept of hypnosis or in any form of communication, they listen but they’re not listening to listen, not actually listening to hear. They’re actually listening to one or two things. They listen to either, “Oh, what that person says makes complete logical sense with my model of the world. I believe them,” or to accept something, or they listen to reject an idea. “Oh, that? What that person’s saying doesn’t make logical sense to me. So I am just going to reject it because it’s different from what I already believe.” I tell my clients to listen to me like you listen to good music. I stole that one from Jurgen Rasmussen. Now when you listen to your favorite good music, you’re not listening to make that music right or wrong. You’re not there to analyze the music saying that chord was wrong, pitch too high or note a bit short. No, you listen to it and you just let it flow on you like a wave. Let it bathe you. And that’s how I ask my clients to listen to me when they first come in through the door, to listen to me when it comes to hypnosis. Don’t listen to it to put it in a box or not put it in a box, just listen to it and absorb it like it’s a rhythm. And that helps many clients interact with this thing called hypnosis. Also, how would I define hypnosis? Well, it’s a sense of hypnosis - a sense of being rather than doing. Now when you’re aware that you’re just doing something, often times that brings in your conscious mind. You’re very aware that you’re doing it and you must be doing it a bit consciously.

Spring Into....Cleaning!


re you ready for spring? If you live in Ottawa, the answer is undoubtably yes! Need some help with spring cleaning? You don’t have to use products with bleach, ammonia and other toxic chemicals to maintain a clean living space. Ingredients found in your kitchen can help do the trick, boosted by the power of, yes, essential oils! This month I decided to share recipes that are easy to make and effective in the home. Enjoy! You can use the following recipe almost anywhere-kitchen bathroom, floors.... Soap-based Cleanser 2 TB liquid soap 15 drops essential oil (citrus oils are great for antibacterial action, paired with tea tree, manuka, thyme, lemon tea tree or oregano) 2 cups distilled water Put soap and oils in container, shake well, then top up with water. The soap will emulsify the essential oils, blending them into the entire mixture better. You can add baking soda to give a slightly abrasive quality to your cleanser for enamel surfaces and so on.

Homemade Poopourri In reading some articles about this product, I discovered that what makes it so useful is that it is added to the toilet bowl beforehand (if you know what I mean). All you need is:

water rubbing alcohol dish soap essential oils spray bottle In your spray bottle, blend 2 teaspoons rubbing alcohol with 2 tablespoons dish soap. Add 40-50 drops essential oil and top up with distilled water. Use....as required Bath fizzers are not just for the tub anymore! Their bubbling action can also help clean toilet bowls. You’ll need baking soda, citric acid, a wetting agent and essential oils for this recipe. Blend 1 cup baking soda with half a cup citric acid (citric acid can make any cuts on your hands sting, so wear gloves if necessary. You may also need a mask if your lungs are sensitive, the citric acid can trigger a reaction). For a wetting agent you can use almost anything. I prefer witch hazel or apple cider vinegar. The latter has the advantage of being antibacterial! Essential oils will really make this recipe shine. Use any I described above, or your choice. Blend all ingredients until you get a mixture that clumps together. Too little moisture and they will fall apart (but are still usable), too much moisture and they will continue to react. ©2018 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St near Somerset.

The Healing Trees


fter 38 years of research and experience with the edible and herbal qualities of the Native Trees of the Upper Ottawa Valley, Robbie Anderman, of Killaloe has gifted us with The Healing Trees book. Full of useful information about nearly all parts of over 30 local Trees, the emphasis is on helping one develop a healthy relationship in one’s mind and heart with the consciousness of The Tall Standing Rooted Ones. Topics like “Trees and Vitamin C” are presented starting in 1535 with Cartier’s crew being cured of scurvy with the help of an Evergreen Tree given to them by Indigenous people near Montreal. During WW2, the Canadian government found that local Evergreens far exceed all citrus fruits in available content of this vital nutrient, especially in winter. The chapter, “Forest First Aid” “is for those who cannot easily get to a doctor or pharmacy while living in, or venturing into the forest. When a malady or injury occurs, our neighbours, the Trees, can often help us, if we ask; and if we know whom to ask and for what. Other chapters address Herbalism and Herbal Methods, Harvesting and Storing Tree Parts, and Edibles from Trees by the Season. In a region where the commonly used herbs are not available for gathering for nearly half the year, it makes sense to see beyond the firewood, lumber, paper pulp, People have always been relating intimately with etc to the other qualities of Trees our ancestors knew Nature and Trees for healing minds and bodies.

Non-Resistance is Fertile (By Rev. Roxanne Buckle, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa)


opposite to be true. When we can see things without resistance and without he confusion of our inner struggle, we are free to allow the infinite possibilities of our divine nature to flow through us in any situation. Spiritual author Eckhart Tolle echoes this, when he says “Nonresistance is the key to the greatest power in the universe. Through it, consciousness (spirit) is freed from its imprisonment in form.”

on-resistance is allowing, accepting, and trusting that what is happening in the bigger picture, even if in this moment I cannot see it, is somehow perfect. It is one of the most mis-understood spiritual concepts, and is fertile ground for spiritual growth.

Soul Mind Body Medicine™

What is the real secret to healing? In one sentence: Heal the soul first; then healing of the mind and body will follow.™ ver the past few decades, various forms of mindbody medicine have become more and more popular, to the point of being widely accepted. These modalities emphasize the mind-body connection, which encompasses the effects of our psychological and emotional states on our physical well-being and the power of conscious intent, relaxation, meditation, belief, and mind over matter to affect our health. Mind-body medicine is a step forward, but it is not enough. It neglects the most important factor, the soul. The soul has consciousness, intelligence, and creativity. The soul has great power to heal and bless. This is soul over matter. Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha, a New York Times bestselling author and a pioneer in modern day spirituality, is a medical doctor in China and a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine in China and Canada. From a very early age, he studied many Eastern arts and is a Grandmaster of tai chi, qi gong, feng shui, and the I Ching. Master Sha is the founder of Soul Mind Body Medicine, a complete soul healing



system that combines the essence of Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine with ancient Chinese healing secrets and powerful new techniques for energy and spiritual healing. These healing techniques work on the soul and the consciousness of the body’s systems, organs, and cells. These techniques directly and instantaneously influence matter inside the cells and energy outside the cells. They work on the emotional body to heal emotional imbalances like depression, anxiety, fear, anger, and grief. They work on the mental body to heal mental imbalances. And, they work on the spiritual body, giving you techniques for self-clearing negative karma. Soul Mind Body Medicine teaches how to apply ancient wisdom and practical techniques including chanting, meditation, forgiveness, movement practices, Tao Calligraphy tracing, and more. This simple yet powerful system of focusing on the soul can be used anytime, anywhere to align the soul, heart, mind, and body to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Lynda Chaplin is a Certified Master Teacher of Master Sha’s Tao Academy™. Join us on April 13-15 to experience the wisdom, knowledge and practical techniques of Soul Mind Body Medicine—see ad for details. Contact Lynda at 647.654.7711 or Lynda.

INTERVIEW WITH DIANA MARTINEZ Psychotherapist, Constellation Facilitator

B.A. in International Relations, an M.A. in Humanities, and a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Ethics.

by Lynne Cardinal


iana Martinez Morales, Ph.D. is coming back to Ottawa for the third time, offering a Transformational Family Constellations workshop. I used this opportunity to ask her a few questions. Lynne: Diana, can you tell us about your upcoming workshop: The Power of Transformation and Healing through Family Constellations? How does it work? Diana: Through the workshop, my work supports and brings greater awareness; it broadens the perspective of your life. It’s not only about you and your symptoms, as everything that happens to us has an intrinsic connection with our family and our origins. We are interrelated and influenced in our lives by our own family and by our trans-generational systems. So, we need to see the deeper connections and entanglements that we hold in us. The Constellations heighten our consciousness into new ways of evolving in our paths. The awareness that arises helps us evolve and shift into a broader, freer perspective. We also learn to connect with our physical, emotional, and mental bodies. We need to integrate those three levels with more consciousness so that we can broaden our possibilities. Lynne: Can you explain what happens when we connect with our physical, emotional, and mental bodies? Diana: A creative part in us, called the soul level, opens. From there we feel much more connected with our family and to the Divine. Lynne: Would you say that by connecting with this deeper part of us, we can see and come to understand that we have a bond with our family and ancestors and that this bond drives and influences us? Is that what we call destiny? Diana: It’s only destiny when there is unhealed trauma. What is there but is not seen influences us. We identify with our tendencies and our family patterns knowingly or not because we need to belong. Yet if you see your place in the family system, if you own your history, where you come from with a grounded foundation or base, it allows you to stand more and more in your potential because you already belong. Lynne: So, the influence of our parents and ancestors is already alive in us. Would you say that if, for example, someone’s father goes to war and becomes traumatized, this could propel his child to also go to war, or to be drawn to aggression or violence?


Join us for an experiential weekend workshop on

The Power of Transformation and Healing through Family Constellations Saturday, June 2nd & Sunday June 3rd 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM at Saint Paul University 223 Main Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Family Constellations are one of the most effective and profound modalities that help us to heal emotionally, and at times physically, and enhance our relationships with ourselves, our families, friends, and the world. For more information visit: www.kaivalya.ca/en/workshops-a-talks or email: FamilyConstellationsDiana@gmail.com Tickets available at Eventbrite.ca under Family Constellations with Diana Martinez

Diana: Of course, it propels us because it is unresolved energy; it is frozen, a trauma, and nobody has embodied it. A trauma is an experience that was too much for one’s system to host or digest. A war is overwhelming and impossible to digest. A person has to numb themselves and this energy is frozen, but it is still there. Life wants to evolve and continue. The next generation will try unconsciously to resolve what hasn’t been resolved by our parents and grand-parents. If we have the humility to honour all that they went through, this happens when we look at it, host it in our hearts.

Lynne: If I can be humble and honour this trauma, are you saying that it would heal me? Diana: Yes, and that’s the way in which you include all of this in your heart. In a system or a family, when there’s someone willing to host or see, there’s a potential for healing. You can include it in your three bodies. You allow your higher consciousness, the part of you that is always witnessing, to embrace this. Also, with humility you know you still keep your place as a daughter or son. Don’t lose your place. If it’s really witnessed, it is what is needed. But often it needs outer support. In constellation work, you are a group of people willing to open your hearts to host the systems of your families. This is a collective methodology of healing. It is specific but also universal. Everyone has parents, and everyone has suffered themselves.


To be continued in next issue... Join us for an experiential weekend workshop on The Power of Transformation and Healing through Family Constellations.

Indian Head Massage Relaxation ~ Rejuvenate ~ Refresh


he art of Indian Head Massage (IHM) originated from the ancient Indian system of medicine called Ayurveda; the balance of body, mind, and spirt and promotion of long life. An IHM session focuses on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, face and ears. Marma points are an integral part of Ayurveda and are subtle pressure points similar to points used in acupressure and Reflexology, which stimulants the life force or pranic flow. Most of the session is done seated in the chair, with finishing, laying on your back on the massage table; paying attention to the face, ears and balancing the upper chakras. Imagine a time for you, without an agenda? Life has become so busy that we forget to carve out time for ourselves: “Me time”! Imagine your world when you are in a state that is even more grounded, present and peaceful? For what I have discovered, allowing to ‘let go’ and relaxing into this state, of more grounded, present and peaceful, is like a river flowing; it flows out from you, to your world, and to your loved ones. From such a peaceful place, this is where magic happens for you! IHM is a simple and effective session. A session with IHM is simple and effective. It is best to wear loose clothing and no heavy sweaters. The possible benefits from an IHM session To name some possible benefits, it relaxes tight and painful muscles, eases stiffness, and breaks down knots in muscles. It can give your hair a healthy lustrous shine; encourages deeper breathing and deep relaxation; triggering the release of “feel good” chemicals to rejuvenating a more balanced state of being; wonderfully refreshed! To book a IHM session please contact Marie Smith at ihmmetime@gmail.com

Clearing Brings in Light Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol

With winter now behind us it’s time to peel off those protective layers we have been hibernating under. I don’t know about you but I have been wrapped up in the safety of my cave feeling protected and cozy, albeit there were times when I felt like I was suffocating beneath the weight and darkness. With each day the sunlight stays around a little longer and from somewhere deep within there is this instinctual urge to clean – this has got to be where the term “Spring Cleaning” originated. As I’ve gotten down to business, clearing each layer of “stuff” out of my space I not only feel lighter physically and mentally an openness brightens my Spirit. It can be hard to let go of our stuff but I can definitely say that the effort will be worth it – I sure feel a whole lot better in every way. I compare it to the butterfly. There is a time that the cocoon has its purpose of protecting and allowing us to develop and grow and there is the time to shed it. Now is the perfect time to begin to discard what no longer serves our highest good. The thick blanket (of things – dust, memorabilia, relationships…) whatever I’ve used to cover and protect me during the cold dark months has done its job and now it is my time to gently push it away. As I do I can see with more clarity, allowing new and fresh ideas to enter my vision. It takes work, perseverance and optimism to do this, but each layer removed brings in more light. The cool, crisp and clean air fills me. With each deep breath I inhale it pumps fresh energy into my lungs, heart and throughout my Soul. The lightness is invigorating and inspiring. It is time to leave the cocoon, begin a new journey and flutter lightly into the new Season. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. www.firstlighthealing.com 613-263-7925

WHAT YOU NEED Channelled by Lisa Virtue


hat you need may seem evident to you. Certain fundamentals come to mind and other particular desires for achievement. What if your needing was examined from a different perspective? Imagine if you will a light in a desert. This light seems so bright and overwhelming. Thirst making, skin burning, incapacitating even. This same light viewed from the arctic tundra may have similar qualities, yet a different experience. The same light given a region of temperate nature with shelter and water in abundance may have quite a different effect. The climate and circumstance highly influence the perception of this same resource that is light. The resources of time or money or influence, etc. can all be perceived so differently. So what is real? You are the creator of the landscape in which these energies are interpreted. You have chosen, whether through conscious action or other, the landscape of your perception. You are very good at creating these landscapes. It comes quite naturally, by instinct. What has not been so prevalent is the witnessing of the repercussions and conscious reforming of the landscape. We are speaking on a personal level, though you may witness this at the societal level. Your framework need not remain as it is just because you have a history with it. We have spoken at length of the many ways to consciously connect with your inner being. You have found much guidance on this matter. Using this understanding of tuning in and feeling what the inner self holds as true for you, you are able to consciously shift your landscapes to more harmonious ones Choose a time to sit and contemplate how you have formed your platform, if you will. Analyze, or simply choose to even regard at all, the whys of particular forms in your life platform. You chose a particular framework, why? Was this a construct someone showed you and you integrated? Is the foundation of that construct

supportive for you? Was it potentially formed of their wounds or beliefs that aren’t in your reality, your experiences? Ask yourself what could be true for you. Are you aware or open to sensing another possibility? Question the value of these constructs and choose to move towards new forms that are more aligned with that inner knowing, the being within you. Choosing in this way then creates a new landscape. Without ever changing the nature of the resource itself you have facilitated a brand new relationship with it in your life experience. Design a desert and you will feel forever parched. Question why you decided there needed to be only sand and you have the beginnings of shifting into a tropical oasis. How long have you let other people dictate your landscape? This is not a failing on your part. Simply the power of recognition, of understanding, has not clearly made its way into your active consciousness. Now the awareness is dawning. The idea seeping in that there is so much more you are capable of than was ever shown you. Bask in the beauty and magnificence of what is truly available. Know that you are indeed a powerful creator, awakening to this new reality, a new era of conscious, more aligned creation. Letting go of the “veracity” of these long-held beliefs opens the way for the aligned to make itself known to you. Chasing is counterproductive. Allowing the dawning of a new thought, a new idea of what’s possible will feel more intuitive. It will allow the balanced to become clearly visible to you in its right time. Take this time now to breathe a sigh of relief. Feel the burden already begin to lift, the constraints begin to soften. Now you have begun a self-freedom technique that can serve you well into the future. Be One and at peace, Your Divine Guidance Lisa Virtue is a channel and healer offering many ways of connecting with your inner truth.
