I have a dream (Excerpt from Mass Influence by Teresa de Grosbois) October 7, 2015   “I have a dream.”


ead those words, and you immediately know I’m quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from one of the most studied and quoted speeches in global history. Newspapers and television media around the world cover that important occasion. Yet few people remember the first words of that speech. On a whim, I asked several friends, both American and Canadian, what they think the first words of that speech are. Half cannot even venture a guess. Two say “I have a dream.” One guesses, “Four score years ago….” (which is close to the second statement of the speech “Five score years ago….”). One person inventively pulls up Google on her iPhone and accurately quotes, “I am happy to join with you today, in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.” Search “Martin Luther King’s I have a dream” on YouTube and watch that speech. You will notice something most people miss, including many of the historians and communications experts who have written long essays on that speech. For the first 11 minutes of that speech, Dr. King reads, purposefully and expertly, from his notes. His words are carefully designed and delivered to paint a clear picture, a clear call to action. Three times he makes a call to action saying “now is the time!” repeatedly calling for peaceful and respectful resistance. Then at just past 11 minutes something truly magical happens. Dr. King stops looking at his notes. His emotional energy shifts and he becomes more grounded than we have ever seen him. Every cell of his being speaks his passion and he begins to speak entirely

from the heart. There is no longer a glance at a script in front of him, just words spoken deeply and passionately. His passion is so great that housewives across the world talk about this being the moment they stopped working in the kitchen and walked over to the television set. “So even though we still face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed.” King uses the phrase “I have a dream” seven more times before the end of the speech. Each sentence produces a vivid image of a reality that is right in front of us all for the taking. An image rooted in passion and belief and freedom. In the course of a single speech, the world moves. The fuel  in your wildfire is how passionate you are in what you do. Passion sells. Passion is infectious. The greater passion level, the more engaging you are. People are drawn to passion. The greater your passion, the more likely you’ll be noticed in all forms of media. Do not mistake passion for extroversion. Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were both selfacknowledged introverts. Passion is the level of emotion you bring to something. It is not about how loud or how much you speak, but about how committed you are to a positive outcome. Passion is grounded in your heart.

In Love and Light Through the Holiday Season by Gillian Pearlstone


t this time of year we are somewhat preoccupied with getting through the cooler, darker days of Autumn going into Winter. It is the natural time for all beings to settle down to hibernate. To ready their bodies for the long rest ahead, to make sure the stores of healthy fats and proteins have been ingested to allow their bodies to take them through this time and awaken on the other side of Winter to new beginnings. What is it that you, as a human being, are going to do with this time? Are you going to catch up on all those great ideas you had in the Summer but didn’t want to come in out of that great weather? Will you try something completely new to challenge your talents? Go back to enjoying your usual hobbies? Whatever it is you choose to do, choose it because you want to do it, not because you feel you should. At this time in our evolution is about standing in our truth and being honest and loving with ourselves. After all, if we don’t love ourselves, who else will love us and how can we love anyone else? For humans, it is coming up to the season of giving and to celebrate the various holidays from around the world in different religions and cultures – Christmas for the Christian calendar; Chanukah for the Jewish calendar; Ramadan for the Muslim calendar; Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe for the Mexican calendar; St. Lucia Day for the Swedish calendar; Diwali on the Hindu calendar; Kwanzaa on the African calendar celebrated in the US and Canada. All these celebrate religious and cultural credos with gift giving, visiting friends and family, celebrating with different foods and colourful lights in and around our homes. All are reflections of these holidays, and the season of Light. While these holidays are so endemic of love and peace and goodwill to all humankind, there are those who are left on the outer fringes of life looking in at others who are celebrating. Let us take the time during our celebrations and send our love and


tangible evidence of this love for our fellow travelers and the animal kingdom on our shared journey through life to include them in our thoughts and deeds and not to forget the most important person in your life - Yourself. At Ottawa Spiritual Pathways Centre (OSPC) we welcome all through our doors, whatever spiritual or religious path is being embarked upon in this lifetime.

Come and celebrate with us, not just the December holidays, and receive the love and light that we have been blessed with and wish to give back to our communities. We meet every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at the Westboro Masonic Centre at 430 Churchill Avenue in Westboro (corner of Churchill and Byron Avenues).

Onward and Upward Written by Alexis Nicol


ecember is a great month to take some time to look back over the past year, maybe reminisce a bit – see what was good or not. It’s a time of get-togethers, giving and receiving. What a wonderful opportunity for us to see the best in ourselves and others. Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that we don’t even realize we’ve received; like a kind word, needed support or a welcomed hug. This December is extra special for me as it is truly the end of an era. After many years working in the government I’m retiring and find myself being transported through a maze of retrospection. Just thinking about all the wonderful times, the trials and tribulations, the many lessons learned, the amazing people I’ve gotten to work with and met along the way makes me realize how blessed I’ve been. I’m sure we’ll be full of great intentions and say the usual things, like “we’ll stay in touch” and don’t forget to call me”. All of which is wonderful, but I am well aware that this is pretty unlikely. I thought it would be easy, but the more I reminisce the more I realize all that I’ll be missing and a little nervous of what the future has in store for me. January will be the first time that I will be truly ready to engage on a new and exciting journey. Time will be my own to decide what to do with it. I have so many hopes, plans and ideas just ready to get at, but I know that the Universe will probably have Its own plans. That’s the funny thing about life; it is constantly moving us forward into new territory, making life interesting and keeping us on our toes. I’m grateful and eager for whatever life happens to bring me – Onward and Upward! Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul.

Right-Size Your Pain by Rev. Roxanne Buckle


Hindu Master, tired of his young apprentice’s complaints, instructs him to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and drink it. “It tastes terrible” spits the apprentice. The Master then leads the young man to a lake and instructs him to mix a handful of salt into the lake. “Do you taste the salt?” asks the Master. “No” says the apprentice. ~ Sunday Celebration at 10:30 a.m. The pain of life is pure salt.

“If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. Truly the greatest gift you have to give is of your own transformation.” Lao Tzu ave you ever noticed how when we get insights into ourselves, our story or our impulses, we are amazed as to how rich our life is and how much is in play in each moment? We do carry the past, whether this is coming from a generational influence, an old pattern that is carried within our family, or whether it is what happened to us just yesterday. Discovering ourselves, our patterns, impulses and story is core to moving forward. As we explore ourselves we often come to the realization that we actually didn’t

know much about ourselves in the first place. We do have a lot of knowledge, but it is as if we aren’t trained to connect with it and to make it conscious to help it empower us. In this way, our deeper awareness may remain evasive and we remain dissatisfied with our life, feeling stuck. Learning about ourselves, our priorities and our impulses is the first step towards reaching a greater potential. It all starts with knowledge, insights and exploring our very own feelings, which are doorways to transformation. Often my clients tell me that they want or sense something, but their actions, words and even thoughts lead them in another direction. This is where feedback from a skilled practitioner can lead you to having your own direct insights, exploring your feelings and the messages they carry, allowing them to transform naturally, as we allow them. With a knowledge based on eastern traditions and transparent communication and as a highly trained certified hypnotist, I am able to allow this knowledge to come from within you. The hypnosis part softly explores your deeper mind to empower your wisdom and truth from within. This generates lasting changes that are deeply fulfilling. Lynne Cardinal is a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss. She has studied extensively with Thomas Hübl on Transparent Communication and Principles of Transformation.

The Significance of Silence (I’m super busy with holiday mediations right now, so here is a slightly reworked encore column from 2011 that seems particularly appropriate at this busy, chaotic time of year.)


e usually equate mediation with talking. It’s better for a separating couple to sit down together with a professional mediator and talk through their issues, we say, rather than battle it out in court. A famous book about mediators is called When Talk Works. A best-selling T-shirt in the mediation field says, “Just Talk To Me.” And yet sometimes mediation is not about talking. It’s about silence, about not talking. One of my favourite mediators, Ken Cloke, writes about silence in his book Mediating Dangerously. Silence in mediation can mean many things, he says. It can indicate agreement with the other disputant, or anger with that person. It can mean someone’s feelings have been hurt, or it can suggest quiet contentment. It can be an indication that a verbal eruption is about to take place, or it can mean someone is on the cusp of transformation. “There are, in other words,” says Cloke, “creative and destructive, positive and negative forms of silence. As mediators, our role is to deepen the creative and diminish the destructive silences.” Many years ago a client sat through a 90-minute mediation session with her estranged husband without saying a word. After the first ten minutes or so, I gently asked her what her silence was about. She wiped away a tear from her eyes and just shook her head as if to say that she couldn’t yet talk. “Would you like to reschedule this session to a better time?” I asked. She shook her head vehemently no. I had no idea what she was experiencing, but I sensed that she needed to do this. “Do you want to just sit here like this?” She nodded her head firmly. And so the three of us sat in silence for the rest of the session. Her husband made a few futile attempts at moving the session along verbally, but then seemed to accept that something important was happening, though he didn’t yet know what. At the end of the session, I invited them both to reflect before we met again on what the wife’s silence had been about, what she was trying to convey to her husband that she couldn’t put into words. The couple told me in their next session that later that same day they were able to have one of their most important conversations ever, and reached a breakthrough in their communication that led quickly to settlement. “I just needed him to understand how deeply his decision to leave me had affected me,” the wife said, “and I had given up trying to reach him with my words.” Sometimes before there can be any more talking there has to be a period of silence. Sometimes, as a colleague of mine used to say, mediation is about letting things

BEING CONSISTENT Rev. Sherry Harris, Psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher


e all want things. We dream, we plan, we fantasize about what we want. How many of us have taken the time to really decide what we want for ourselves? Most us change our orders from day to day then wonder why the Divine Creator has not brought us what we ask for. It is like being a restaurant and changing your order every five minutes. You will never get anything delivered. It is so important to be clear, focused and committed to what you truly want to manifest. If you do this and clear all the unconscious and subconscious blockages to your having this, the Divine must provide it. We live in a sea of soul consciousness, a creative substance that gives us what we ask for. What we need to understand is that this creative substance listens not to our conscious thoughts, but to the subconscious/ unconscious, our latent operating systems of thoughts and beliefs for the most part unknown to us. We may think we want something, but if we have buried fears or doubts about our deserving it, it will not come to us. To create what we truly want we need to clear the unconscious and subconscious beliefs keeping us from having all we desire. The creative substance listens, but not at the level of our outward expression; it listens to our hidden emotion based drivers and motivators. All this is to say, do your work. Clear away those beliefs of being undeserving, not being lovable, not trusting in the Divine Abundance that is your birthright. I have found two very effective means to do just that, The Inner Child work which I have successfully practiced and used personally for over twenty years and my new therapy, Theta HealingŽ. Both get to the core of the blockages keeping us from manifesting all we want in life. Be consistent, do your work, ask for what you want with clear, focused intent and remove the underlying beliefs keeping you from all you desire. You’ll be amazed how quickly things start changing for the better in your life when you take this giant for yourself.

Last year, it was very unusual that I had to treat sick patients many months after the flu season, as late as September. They had contracted viruses at the tail end of the flu season (April) and their viral infections lingered throughout the summer causing them Gastro problems and moreover, causing painful muscle problems. These folks had not been pre-treated by our clinic for last year’s flu. These folks had contracted the EV-D68 virus that begins as a respiratory virus, then moves to the digestive tract and in some, then impacts muscles. These patients endured suffering, some for nearly 5 months. The EV-D68 virus is a member of the nonpolio family of viruses. It can also cause Type I diabetes in children. Our treatments cleared their symptoms and did so quickly Call Gerry to book your pre-season energy medicine flu virus treatment. We are now open Monday to Friday in Ottawa and alternate Thursdays in Hull.

The ABCs of Hydrosols


lthough I have written about hydrosols before, I thought it would be timely to talk about them again, since they are truly versatile and helpful in so many ways! Hydrosols, also called flower waters, are a very dilute plant by-product. As such, they can be used in different ways from their more powerful counterparts, the essential oils. Hydrosols can be used diluted or undiluted in the bath, on skin or by ingestion, and still provide some of the power of the plant they are derived from. Cedarwood: considered sacred in many parts of the world, this hydrosol is calming and cooling, making it a great aftershave toner, or skin cleanser for oily skin. Chamomile: (avoid if sensitive to ragweed) is analgesic, calming and sedative, so good for a soothing bath before bed. It can also be used as a compress for inflammation, and is very useful for teething trouble. Cornflower: this hydrosol is wonderful for soothing sore eyes. Soak a soft washcloth in the hydrosol and give yourself fifteen minutes of ahhhhh. Geranium: a balancing floral water, geranium is great for cleansing or toning the face. It also is a mood balancer, so a bath during stressful times can help calm a troubled mind.

Immortelle: very healing in a compress for bumps and bruises, this ingredient is an amazing healer. It helps calm skin irritations and can even be used as a mouthwash. Lavender: great as a toner for all skin types, lavender hydrosol is very healing and cooling for burns of all kinds. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm anger, either by bathing in it or by drinking it. Lemon balm: aka Melissa, this product helps with herpes simplex and other viruses, good for calming stomach aches and even helps during allergy season. Drinking this hydrosol would be a good way of absorbing its healing properties Witch hazel: historically used for sore muscles, red/irritated skin and in a sitz bath. Great in skin care as well! We have more hydrosols in store, and can explain them in more detail at Planet Botanix. Hope to see you soon!

HYPNOSIS: a natural, effective solution to bedwetting in children

By Dr Luke edwetting, or to give it its clinical name, Nocturnal Enuresis, is the cause of untold misery to both child and parents. The endless washing of sheets, the ruined mattresses, the lingering smell of urine that seems to pervade the whole house, witnessing your child’s own dejection and disappointment, the desperation of the situation seeming never to get any better are just a few of the parental responses to this problem The child him or herself (and in fact it is likely to be ‘himself’ since the problem more often occurs in boys) is likely to suffer in different ways, possibly the worst of which is the damage to their self-esteem. They feel they should have outgrown what they see as a babyish problem and according to their own personality can feel ashamed, depressed, irritated by being asked about the problem, angry with


themselves or others, fed-up because they can’t go on ‘sleepovers or school trips without embarrassment or complicated cover–ups. It can cause very practical difficulties too; they often have to get up and change sheets in the night so sleep is broken with attendant tiredness and irritability in the mornings or they have to wake up earlier in the morning to change bed clothes and make time for a shower. It feels horrible to wake up in wet, smelly pyjamas and sheets. Probably worst of all is the ever-present sense of failure and the need to go to extraordinary lengths to hide the fact from friends and, sometimes even other members of the family. By the time parents bring their children to see me, their hypnotherapist, they have often exhausted every other avenue and come, as they say, in a ‘last ditch’ attempt to solve the problem. They have tried bed-alarms, they have tried medication, they use mattress protectors, they use incontinence protective pants (another source of embarrassment to the child). What a pity that hypnotherapy couldn’t have been the first avenue; in fact,e

steoarthritis, sometimes called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage in the joints wears down over time. The smooth surface of the cartilage becomes rough, causing irritation. Eventually, if the cartilage wears down completely, there may be no cushion left between the bones and the joint may be left with bone rubbing on bone, causing damage to the ends of the bones and the joints to become painful. The disorder can affect any joint in your body, but most commonly affects joints in your hands, hips, knees, neck, and lower back. It isn’t clear what causes osteoarthritis in most cases. Researchers suspect that a combination of factors may play a role in the condition, including the aging process, joint injury or stress, heredity, muscle weakness, and obesity. Acupuncture is a useful option to help manage osteoarthritis and help prevent further progression of this condition. Acupuncture sees osteoarthritis as a “bi syndrome”, meaning that it is caused by a blockage that prevents circulation of blood and qi-energy to the joint, leading to pain and stiffness. Over time, the syndrome progresses and the joint deteriorates because of the lack of proper nourishment. Acupuncture focuses on removing the obstruction to the joint and increasing circulation so that the can joint receive proper nourishment. In this way, the symptoms of pain, inflammation, and stiffness can be relieved, and the joint can become stronger and healthier. With osteoarthritis, we should remember that this is a problem that will not go away and a proactive approach is necessary. Having osteoarthritis does not necessarily mean that a person must be resigned to pain and suffering- steps can be taken to minimize or prevent symptoms. The key to living with a condition such as this is to take steps towards healthy management through exercise, lifestyle changes, and therapies which relieve symptoms and help manage the condition. Acupuncture is certainly worth considering as part of this routine.


Living High Level Wellness in All Aspects of Your Life with Energy Healing: In the form of Integrated Energy Healing Methods… Quantum-Touch therapy, Polarity Therapy and Cranio-Sacral Therapy Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach


ands-on healing work is a fascinating process that takes place in the body as I simply hold my hands upon the part that needs healing, and using my special skills as an energy worker, facilitate the body in its process to return to its state of perfect health or to return to the perfect health matrix as it was before the DNA entered the system. It follows therefore, that a person may have carried a certain condition when it was born, but that it is possible for that condition to be corrected using the skills that I use. Recently, Kim and Bryan Hutt and I were exhibitors at The Mystical Event at the Ernst Young Centre on Uplands Drive in Ottawa. During the three days of The Event, we offered 20 minute sessions to visitors to enable as many people as possible to experience this work. The results were astounding, as the many comments in our feedback book can attest. Initially, we worked on the photographer, who had pain in his cervical vertebrae as well as numbness in his right leg, originating in his little toe. Kim held his toe and I placed my hands on the front and back of his neck. Within 10 minutes, we felt movement, and he was astonished at what he felt going on. His neck was totally fine, and he could walk much more easily and had energy and feeling again in his right leg. In fact, he just kept walking and coming by to see us, to show how much better he felt. We worked on many people who were dealing with old issues, that they considered could not be helped by our hands-on process. Without exception, they experienced results that were exceptional, and much beyond what the client thought could happen. Severe pain in the knee, and lower back pain, was reduced after 20 minutes, to no pain in the knee and much reduced lower back pain. One young man reported that he had fallen on his head years before, and had migraines when the weather changed. I held his head for a few moments, and then I held his ankles. Suddenly he was giggling and told me that his hips were moving as I held his ankles. When he sat up, he was again surprised, as he began to move his upper body and his shoulders. He said that he always had some sort of restriction in his neck that needed to be ‘cracked’ every now and then. After his session, that restriction was no longer there, and when he stood up he marvelled at how much taller he felt, although he was already a tall person, his body clearly felt that it had elongated while he was on the table.

This represents a few of the experiences we had at The Mystical Event. Clients are having these results every day in our studios as we place our hands upon those in pain, or with any kind of restriction in their beings. The restrictions are not always physical, they are often presenting as physical, but have a profound emotional origin. The results are, however, the same, as the emotional pain, releases as the physical pain heals itself, the emotions are healed as well.

here are clear warning signals. We get caught in our dramas, find ourselves telling and retelling our stories to whomever will listen. We court our suffering and keep it alive. The courtship of suffering can be an ugly romance for we enter into a co-dependent relationship, which has to be called by its true name – Addiction. We become so tightly tied into our suffering that we cannot be without it even though it is destroying us. We grasp at brief insights that “Yes – this is suffering” – but deal only with surface appearances. The surface exposure has a long history of gathering momentum and energy. The small snake has become a monster. The addiction to suffering is now embedded in our mental state. We respond to any glimpse of suffering with such destructive emotion that we reinforce the causes and conditions that created the suffering in the first place. And so we continue shooting ourselves in the foot, torpedoing our lives. Our suffering is caused by abuse – emotional, physical and sexual – and it becomes an organizing template in our mind. We then create an abusive relationship with that template’s qualities – addiction; fear; co-dependency. To stop the cycle of harm we need an OMG moment. The insight that: OH MY GOD THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING ALL MY LIFE. HOW DO I STOP IT? That insight has to arrive in the mind before we can apply ourselves to developing mindfulness as an antidote to the abusive relationship established with our suffering. It is awesome to penetrate the darkness and realize that the abuse has created an abusive relationship with yourself. Mindfulness practice can bring the abusive relationship to a halt. This is the required OMG moment that propels you to get to work. To go backwards from the surface and investigate the causes and conditions that placed you in such suffering. And so we learn the practices, tools and concentrations that support this journey of understanding suffering and taking care of it. We break the cycle through re-training and mindfulness practice. We equip ourselves for a journey to be well that requires our determination to practice mindfulness daily and ensure that we take refuge in wise support.

May all the glad tidings of the season bless your household and family December is a month of celebration, lots of shopping, and lots of parties. We recognize that not everyone wants to party, and not everyone enjoys this time of the year. People from other countries, cultures and walks of life, are bombarded at this time of year with movies, shows and broadcasts of Xmas season’s past. Most of all, it is a time that you are acutely aware of being on your own when there is songs on the radio and television shows all about “family holiday gatherings” The hype and commercialism of the December holiday is constant. Be aware that you are NOT on your own, and that many countries and groups of people, although appreciating the joy and happiness that abounds, it is not part of their customs. If you need a place to just destress, unwind, an ear to listen, we at PL are here to be of service/help. We are a phone call away, or if you prefer to e-mail, Rev. Eugene’s e-mail will be provided at the end of this missive.

If you don’t hear the sound of a train whistle - your car could be struck. In the same way, our bodies and minds have built in warning systems to protect us and our valuable cargo. But do we fully understand what our warning system is telling us? I see myself as a facilitator to help people realize what they have and help them use their natural tools to their best advantage. For instance, in choosing what food to buy at the supermarket I ask the question “Is this food good for me to eat?” My body bends forward or backward immediately in response to this question.There are some of you who would respond in the same way. Others would not respond in this physical manner but might see a particular colour in their minds or hear a particular sound.I should point out that I also receive a telepathic yes or no in response to the same question. Not everybody receives their information in the same way. Always remember that there are different systems of detection for different people. My purpose, therefore, is to help you find what your primary system is and show you how to use it in the most effective manner possible. I am prepared to work with individuals, couples and small groups in a personal or workshop setting to assist in fulfilling these objectives. Derek Van Der Light is a Shaman, Teacher and Exorcist.

December 2015

Laura’s Numerology News For December 2015 HAPPY HOLIDAYS! How to calculate your personal monthly number for December Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth and then add the number 2 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 2.  Then add 6+2=8.  You would read point number 8 if this was your birthday. If you still have trouble, email me 1. I know that this year was a rough ride, for sure. The stresses and worries of this year should begin to fade by the end of the month. Take extra time this month to rest and heal your weary mind and body. You are moving into a stronger phase soon. 2. If you are extra generous to your special clients, friends and loved ones this Christmas, the rewards will be seen early next year. Diplomacy is required in all your relationships. Pushyness will push back, so be careful. 3. Is there anything or anyone that you do not want to take with you, into your next 9 year cycle? Use this month to do the final excavation of everything that has to go. Try to also factor in some fun or travel. Get ready for a new cycle in your life. 4. I know that you have worked very, very hard, this year, and may not have reaped the rewards yet. New business opportunities are stewing and they will lighten your financial load, soon. There is usually increased work and family duty at this time, but try to factor in a bit of time for you.

5. You will be forced to deal with a relationship that is on the brink of some kind of change. Deal with this now and make a pact with yourself to put more emphasis on your health and and creativity next year. 6. Are you thinking of getting engaged, or making a major domestic commitment this month? You may want to wait until Jan., as there could be some issues that come up that make you change your mind, or want to approach it differently. Home and family issues are spotlighted for you this month. 7. You must take a break or you might blow a brain cell. You are running on very low fuel and may feel totally toasted. Next year will be a busier year than you ever imagined, so get ready. Many, many changes are coming. 8.Long awaited change related to your business or money situation will finally appear. Just say “Yes”, to the offer and go for it, NOW. This is a month to take action, and promote yourself and your product. 9. You will not have much time for your own personal needs, in Dec. Every moment of your time will be focused on the kids, home or family responsibilities. Call Granny and the clan and invite them for Xmas dinner. If you have a bit of extra time, use it to clean the dust bunnies from your home and get rid of unwanted junk and clutter. Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist/ life coach. Full sessions are available inperson to clients in Ottawa, ON, Canada. Phone and Skype sessions are conducted worldwide. For a personal consultation please email: 613-725-7232

By Patricia Gervais ‘Tis the season for giving. Many of us have busy lives, and are even busier at this time of year. Pain, stress and constant commitments are draining. It can be hard to give to others when we’re not feeling well and are running on empty. This holiday season, take some time for yourself and your health and try Bowen Therapy. Bowen Therapy may help with a wide range of conditions such as muscle and joint problems like back and neck pain; shoulder, elbow, and knee pain; foot problems like hammer toes, bunions and plantar fasciitis; and even TMJ issues. It may also help with nerve pain like carpal tunnel and sciatica. Bowen Therapy can be highly effective on internal conditions, such as asthma, migraines, digestive problems, and elimination issues. Bowen Therapy is famous for eliminating colic in babies, often in just one session! Chronic conditions such as MS, arthritis, Parkinson’s, and fibromyalgia may improve with ongoing work. Many clients find Bowen Therapy helps them to relax and reduces anxiety and stress-related conditions. Because of prolonged stress, they’ve often forgotten what it feels like to be relaxed. With Bowen Therapy, they “feel better in their skin” and are better able to make choices and decisions that support their continued well-being. A Bowenwork session usually lasts about 45 minutes to an hour. The gentle but purposeful moves can be done on skin or through light clothing. There are specific pauses between various sets of moves to allow the body to integrate and process the received information, and to activate the healing process. Each session is individualized specifically for you according to how your body responds. Bowen Therapy can be used on anyone, from the very frail or elderly to expectant mothers and newborns. Bowen Therapy is a truly holistic approach to healing that affects body, mind and spirit. It can take you out of the “fight or flight mode” that most of us are in most of the time and put you into “relax and repair mode” where you need to be to heal.

Bowen Therapy Success Stories

Here’s what our clients are saying about Bowen Therapy. Back Pain I had a nagging, recurring pulled muscle in my back I thought I would try Bowen Therapy. After three treatments the muscle was definitely much better

December 2015

Health and Well-Being and during that time I continued to golf, which had originally caused the problem. After a couple more treatments, I can say that the problem is gone. This is the best hour of relaxation, and a wonderful healing process at the same time.” MG, 2015 Shoulder Pain and Insomnia “I started Bowen Therapy because of a sore shoulder and a general feeling of unwell. After the first treatment I left feeling relaxed and very calm. After a few sessions, the shoulder pain had decreased significantly. After a few more sessions the pain was gone and hasn’t returned. I found the sessions very gentle and calming and always left feeling better than when I arrived, both in mind and body. I also suffer from insomnia and discovered the added benefit in the change in my sleep. I was able to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.” SE, 2015 Repetitive Strain Injury “The Bowen Therapist successfully addressed the pain in my right arm and hand caused by repetitive strain injury. For weeks, I would wake up in the middle of the night with a throbbing pain in my right hand and a dull ache in my arm. The therapist provided targeted Bowen treatment, recommended an ergonomic assessment of my workstation, and suggested individual exercises to alleviate the pain. I often tell people that my Bowen Therapist saved my life, because not only did she Bowen-away the pain issue, I was no longer sleep deprived.” AW, 2015 Stress “I started Bowen Therapy in a state of great emotional pain and debilitated by stress. Bowen Therapy provided immediate and deep relief from the suffering. It has helped too, in my recovery from an alcoholic relapse.” KK, 2015

Cerebral Palsy “The Bowen Therapist explained Bowen therapy and I decided to try it for three sessions. During the hour session, I experienced physical sensations and even emotional feeling. Because of my positive experience, I had another three sessions in the spring. I felt more energy and I gained more physical stability that has maintained even while I take a shower. I have cerebral palsy since birth and I intend to do some more Bowen Therapy to discover the results.“ CP, 2015

the gas pains had improved and he hasn’t had any in two weeks. He is also not as fussy. He still has some bouts of colic but definitely not like before. He’s such a happier baby now.”

Colic “I am happy to report Caleb is doing much better! I’d say about a week after his last Bowen Therapy session,

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How can a person conquer the habit of negative thinking?

SRI CHINMOY: Sometimes people cherish negative thoughts. They get a kind of pleasure from them. They feel that fear, doubt, jealousy, etc. are necessary. But you must be careful with what you do with your thoughts, for each thought has and is an atomic power. An undivine or negative thought is your worst enemy. One bad thought is enough to destroy a whole day. One divine or good thought is enough to keep the whole day cheerful. We have to develop thoughtcontrol. See if a thought brings you forward spiritually; if so then think it. If it brings you backward, do not think it. See if the thought makes you strong, stronger, strongest after a few minutes, or if it makes you weak, weaker, weakest. Each good thought is a forward march and each bad thought brings you backward. We can get rid of negative thoughts with our soul’s will power. By praying and meditating regularly, we will slowly and steadily develop the will power that comes from our soul—our Source, which is God. We have to feel that God is all Light and all Love, and that we are God’s chosen children. In Love there is no negative thought;

it is all positive. So if we want to get rid of negative thoughts, then we should invoke God the Love. Always try to have good thoughts. Try to see the good qualities. If we have good thoughts it creates a beautiful atmosphere in a room or place. Forget the misdeeds of yesterday. Only think of today’s good things. Always start again, every morning, every hour. Children see beauty in everything because of their inner purity. So always try to feel that you are God’s child and you will get abundant inner strength and will power to conquer negative thoughts.

Qi-Gong Healing Using Energy Frequencies


i-Gong master James Foo teaches “QiMatic” energy healing techniques that I consider to be faster, more targeted and more powerful than Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy. (I am a Master in both modalities.) Sifu (Teacher) James Foo can see and manipulate energy. Based in Toronto, Canada, he has lived in the U.K. and Hong Kong. He gives workshops in Ottawa on a regular basis. Learn more about him and the Qi-Matic Research Center at What is Unique About Qi-Matic Qi-Gong Of the many advances that Sifu James has made in the field of energy healing, he has studied and adapted the work of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., author of  Power vs Force. In that ground-breaking book, Dr. Hawkins describes energy frequencies. Everything in the world — plants, minerals, animals, humans — is comprised of energy that vibrates at a specific frequency. The higher the frequency, the more spiritual the energy. Sifu James has determined that Earth (the planet) currently vibrates at a frequency of 207. That is also the frequency of a healthy human being. When a person is ill, his frequency may decrease, and this inhibits healing. Sifu James teaches his students how to raise their personal frequencies temporarily and over longer periods using his downloadable energy paper. According to Sifu James, love energy vibrates at a frequency of 528. At that level, you may command energy

for healing yourself or others. You do not need to be an energy worker. Anyone can do it! So, how do you temporarily raise your energy frequency to 528? The procedure Sifu James teaches in his free introductory course is so simple, yet so effective. When you are at the 528 frequency, you can direct universal energy to heal emotional and physical issues in yourself or others, in accordance with the Qi-Gong “no me” principle. That is, for self-healing, do not use the words “me” or “my”. Examples of healing statements are: 1. Fill body with healing energy (intending that it be your own body). 2. Fill ___________’s body with healing energy. 3. Clear anger in body related to ____________ (issue). 4. Clear sorrow in heart related to ____________ (issue). 4. Heal source of pain in ____________ (part of body). 5. Send love energy to ____________ (name). You may of course modify these suggestions to suit. If there is a loving, healing intent, 528 will work. In his Level 1 to Level 5 courses, Sifu James teaches advanced techniques to balance energy, repair specific organs (Transpose Technique), remove blockages and much more. He helps students adapt to the new energies that are shifting the Earth’s energy. His research is ongoing, and in every workshop he provides new information. Registrants are also able to make appointments for personal healing sessions for $50.

Daniel Roy



Principle Instructor / Certified Financial Planner


love the quote from Lao Tzu which says “A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step”. Many times in my life I have found myself in a position of immobility that is, not being able to move forward to get something done. I was frozen not necessarily in fear but in this unwillingness to “take the first step” to accomplish whatever I needed to do. You can certainly relate to this. Is it because of laziness? Is it because of a lack of information or technical skill to get the job done? Is it the fear of the unknown that is keeping you from moving forward? There are a million reasons that you can come up with for not taking action. I would suggest that you take the time and identify what is holding you back from accomplishing your goals. Results will only show up in your life when you take action. There is nothing magical about this. The magic happens because you decided to move forward and go after your goals as complex or simple as they might be. When you live an intentional life and take action, you feel empowered and all the resources that you need show up in your life to help you get there. I dare you to take the first step! Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute. He is a Certified Financial Planner as well as a Certified Retirement Coach and public speaker. He is the author of “The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness”. He conducts workshops and courses on the subject of wealth management as well as designing meaningful and rewarding retirements.

120 Positive Acts of Energy


any people have told us they already benefit from angel, tarot and oracle cards. They use them personally for their daily inspirations and reflections or as part of an energy practice with clients. They’ve asked us what is so unique about The Joy of Energy cards. It’s a great question! Instead of us telling you what they are all about, we thought we would share the inputs of people just like you who are using them right now. “…opened my heart and mind all at the same time” “…uplift and inspire me every morning” “…pack a huge amount of information into one small package” “…finally found a resource I fully resonate with” “…gave me the boost I needed to begin living who I truly am” “…confirms my need to listen to my intuition” “...I now see the world through the eyes of energy. How refreshing!” “…simple and elegant” All of these contributions have deeply touched our hearts. One of our favourites comes from a young adult who said “Wow! The cards speak my language and let me be ME”. As sisters who got caught up in corporate and societal expectations, we found tremendous comfort in energy over the years. Energy helped us to reduce stress, heal and transform. It’s become our way of living. As a dear friend recently told us, “You’re just like me and have made energy accessible through these cards. Thanks for making it simple for the rest of us”.


Sponsoring Deepak Chopra’s visit to Ottawa last month and hearing about the need for simple, informative awareness tools for well-being has inspired us even more to share our message with the world. We encourage everyone to pay the 120 Positive Acts of Energy forward to help find meaning and make sense in a modern life. The Joy of Energy cards make the perfect gift for the holidays.

BodyTalk Therapy:

What are you waiting for?


o you feel as though your mind and spirit are not synchronized, yet are guiding your body in an aimless direction on a daily basis? As though your energy is drained or flat or simply unable to support your overall health? Do you experience regular mental or physical symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, headaches, backaches, endocrine, immune or menstrual disorders, ongoing tension or other challenging health patterns that stop you from living the life you want? If so, you are not alone! Our bodies perfectly reflect the alignment of our spirits, minds, thoughts and perspectives and as a result, many of us beings walking on the planet experience the various symptoms of misalignment. By attuning our minds and spirits and emitting the related frequency that we would like to carry, we can all change our health drastically on all levels. When ill-adapted mental/emotional patterns and belief systems become so entrenched that we have difficulty seeing them and our spirit is consequently so out of alignment with how we would like to show up in the world, our physical bodies inevitably suffer. Coming back into alignment can be facilitated by BodyTalk energy therapy, which helps to bring these health patterns into awareness, and unlock them by liberating the energic and neural patterns that hold them in place. As we become aware of these patterns and begin to elevate the frequency that we would like to hold, we notice that the majority of our illnesses and imbalances can fall away as they no longer need to show us that we are misaligned.

We can all choose to heighten this awareness and embody THAT aligned vibration, reflected back in our health, and the overall health of the planet at this time. Because if we don’t care about how we feel and what we emit, who will? Do your body, mind and spirit a favor and let them speak to you of the untapped possibilities that are available, awaiting recognition and the able to become active in your life now. What are you waiting for? Come in for a BodyTalk therapy session today! For more information and/or to book a BodyTalk session, please visit Lori Hollohan’s website at: and/or, or email her at: Lori Hollohan MA is a Certified Advanced Parama BodyTalk Practitioner, Cranial Sacral, Lymphatic Drainage, Mindfulness and Conscious Awakening Coach, Reiki II Practitioner, a Hatha Yoga Teacher and integrates trauma work into her practice.

Kirtan at Wishingtree by Stewart McIsaac


o begin, I am eternally grateful to be part of the teacher training at Wishingtree Yoga under the guidance of Rupa Manjari Devi Das. I have discovered so much about the Self and the soul. Kirtan is a natural progression/ evolution of my music, and I delight in the Love expressed through sacred Sanskrit healing mantras. Kirtan is a type of yoga singing or chanting that expresses pure Love to and from the heart. We are in special place, a secret place, a sacred place when we experience the Love. Kirtan guides us to this place in our hearts, together as we chant, make music, make vibration, make resonance, make Love. Love Mysticism! Kirtan is an important part of the Yoga of Sound. Sound Yoga is Sonic Mysticism. Through Sound one cultivates the experience of sacred sound vibration and resonance. Yoga or Mysticism cultivates a direct experience of Divine Presence. Sound Yoga is a path to cultivate, through sacred sound vibration and resonance and Love, a direct experience of Divine Presence. Yoga is Love Mysticism as it combines Tantra and Bhakti in order to embrace the Divine, the Love of the Divine. The Breath of Joy activates healing energy. Hatha Yoga activates healing energy. Kirtan activates healing energy. The Yoga of Sound activates

healing energy. These paths are one in the same in the presence of the Divine, in the presence of Love. I invite everyone to experience Love through the chanting of Kirtana, the asanas of Hatha, the energy of Tantra, and ultimately the devotion of Bhakti. “If you want to awaken all of humanity then awake all of yourself. If you want to eliminate suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self transformation.” (Lao Tze) “Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving – it doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times, Come, come again, come.” (Rumi) Welcome to all, to experience Kirtan at Wishingtree. Located in Kanata, Wishingtree Yoga Centre simplifies Yoga to make it accessible to new students and provide depth to experienced Yogis. For more information, visit www.

W ELCOME Channeled by Lisa Virtue


n the light of the coming new year, as you prepare yourselves for the festivities and interactions with family and friends, for a season of celebration, we remind you to come into your heart-centre more frequently. In your stresses and worries about getting things right and all coming together well, your work and your home life activities; bringing yourself back to a moment of time of calm, centred, loving, peaceful feeling will assist you in choosing a new perspective on each of your activities. When you bring your thoughts into alignment this way before you prepare, before you interact. When you choose to look at all of it from a place of appreciation for what is and what can be, of love for all those in your life, all that everyone brings to you - the opportunities or the joys. There is so much to be treasured. As you choose to adopt perspective on all of it that is lighter and appreciative, you automatically bring the forces of the Universe to play in such a way as to more readily align with your perspective. As you choose worry and stress and focusing on the negative points of those you’re going to be interacting with or the challenges that face you, you are inviting that perspective to prevail. You are choosing to open your eyes to that regard, to seeing those things more. To aligning your vibration to that lower state, and inviting, effectively, more of that into your experience. Those around you need not change for you to have a different experience. You are in control of your perspective, which brings you into control of how you feel. If you find yourself in a state less than appealing, in a reactive manner or a judging space, when you catch that you may, in that moment, or in moments that follow, decide to choose differently. What is important is that when you notice you make that decision for yourself to adjust for your own happiness. Whether others choose to come along with you is not important. While it is not as much fun to be the only happy soul in a sea of miserable people, you must agree that it is better than joining the

rest of them in their misery. It is you who provide the lifeline to the rest to be able to choose happiness for themselves as well. Be the example you wish to see. So enjoy Dear Ones, all that comes for you in this season of special times. Make the best of what you have. Choose to see the joy, choose to see the abundance, choose the perspective of true appreciation and then you will find, as you validly hold this, that your energy pattern shifts. Then the world around you begins to adapt to reflect that higher positive vibratory state, and reflect it to you. Do not hold yourselves in disregard. Choose to give yourself great appreciation and love first, and then you will find it easier to overflow that to others. You must value yourself to see the shifts you’re looking for, and this is a beautiful time to accomplish more of that. Great blessings are with you always. With so much love for each and every being, The True Spirit That Is You.

Open House Celebration and One-Night-Only Sale December 4th Lisa Virtue is holding a (free) celebration on Dec. 4th from 5:30-9:30pm. She will be hosting many festivities over the course of the evening including channeling angels, connecting to your guides, and grounding.
