Sacred Journey of a Modern-Day Mystic A Novel by Michèle Cleveland St.Amour Go to page 2-3 for details


Chakaura: Awakening the Muse A novel by Michèle Cleveland St.Amour

About The Author Michèle Cleveland St.Amour was born in Kingston, Ontario. When she was very young, her family moved to Cornwall, where she grew up in a Franco-American community. To this day, it greatly influences her work and her unique expression. Dedicated to a life of service, Michèle offers methods of self-transformation based on ancient wisdom teachings from many sources, including her Aboriginal elders. Not anchored in any belief system, she believes that health is a continual process of staying strong spiritually, mentally, and physically and that we must remain in harmony with ourselves, other people, our natural environment, and our Creator. Michèle’s passion for life and high energy touch everyone she encounters. Her keen mind and balanced heart help people overcome boundaries that no longer serve their highest good. In her early thirties, Michèle went through a spiritual awakening often referred to as the “dark night of the soul.” Her many years of physical, mental, and emotional healing forced her to delve deeply into her inner world and her unconventional experiences and states of being. Similar to the paths of other mystics and seekers, her quest enabled her to understand the esoteric meaning of our human journey. Michèle’s novel Chakaura: Awakening the Muse parallels her own awakening and tells the story of a young woman’s daredevil attitude when faced with altered realities and the moment of enlightenment that changed her forever. My goal in this book is to offer a different view of the world of spirit through a grounded science. In sharing Angelina’s journey of awakening, I aim to de-mystify the path of remembering, which ultimately leads to enlightenment. —Michèle Michèle lives simply in a solar-powered house in the mountains, growing a good amount of her own food and implementing a sustain- able lifestyle as much as possible in our modern world. She also gathers wild herbs and always plants a wide selection in her garden for various medicinal remedies, in keeping with her Native heritage. Michèle, a highly intuitive and gifted individual, mentors and guides countless people to self-realization at the Chakaura™ Institute of Soul, a clinical and educational centre teaching the principles of natural health. She offers her services as a consultant with the lens of a highly intuitive individual, her Naturopathic Energy Practitioner (NEP™) skills to enable you to reach your full potential and her teaching skills to empower your life. Her specialty is knowing the soul, its role, and how to bring soul consciousness to your life experience. At her centre, Michèle provides programs, workshops, retreats, and seminars to those guided to her. When requested, she will travel to other locations to offer programs and seminars.

Chakaura: Awakening the Muse A novel by Michèle Cleveland St.Amour

Immerse yourself in Angelina's world, where magic and mysticism are part of her everyday life. Angelina was born remembering who and what she was, but at a very young age she asked the “Powers That Be” to let her forget. This book takes you on a journey of self-discovery through Angelina’s years of awakening and amazing adventures. She explores the path of mystical initiation in a culture on the brink of cataclysmic change. Her ability to speak the little known language of the soul begins to surface in her search for truth and understanding, as her gifts of clairvoyance, prophecy, and healing take over her life. Join Angelina and learn through her tale the truths about reality that we all need to know. Book Excerpt

Chapter 1: The Prophecy

My name is Angelina, and I come from a family of seers. Destiny chose me for this role from birth. You cannot read a few books or take a couple of courses and expect to be a seer or a healer. It never happens that way. From a young age, I just knew instinctively what this life had in store for me. My latest vision had me a bit flushed and annoyed at the magnitude of the information I had to process. I spent a few hours mentally replaying this prophetic revelation. The vision had come upon me like a drug. My body hummed and throbbed with sensations of energy, and I gradually fell into a deep, altered state of consciousness. This revelation would define the rest of my life in ways I could not imagine...

Here we are at the end of another calendar year. The natural inclination is to look back and reflect. What did we do with that time? Did we enjoy what we did? Did we do what we set out to do? Oftentimes these reflections are a bit of a downer... we realize that life didn’t quite go the way we had intended. We set out to do great things, but life got in the way. This is time for compassion for oneself. No use in lamenting on the past. The conscious individual is one who is willing to take a good look at their lives, see both the good and bad aspects, and learn from it to make it all good. We take those observations, move forward and with courage set out to make new resolutions. “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” -- Winston Churchill

CREATIVITY!

W

hat that hell is creativity? I heard someone describe creativity as stepping on stones across a stream and trusting that the next step will hold your weight. You just go. You step! It’s our fear that stops us from making the next step. But, how the hell do we overcome our fear? That’s all very well to say JUST STEP TO THE NEXT STONE, especially if you’re not the one who will fall in the creek. Hello… I’m the one falling in the creek and I’d rather not, thank you very much!! So, how do we tap into our NATURAL creativity and NOT fall in the creek? I think humour has a big place in all this. I take my clients situations very seriously, but I don’t take ME too seriously. And I recommend to my clients to take their issues very seriously and themselves less so. I’m an Integral Master Coach™ and I assist my clients in rediscovering their joy and creativity. Humour and healing are important qualities I’ve grown to value, both in my 20 years in the animation film business, and over the past 15 years in my practice as a Registered Massage Therapist. A few years ago I was able to incorporate my

two passions into one and create a workshop called, “Keep the Humour in Healing.” I’d love to show YOU how to bring YOUR creativity and passion to your Life, too!

the Bushes, and more recently Donald Trump. Such “leaders” use propaganda and highly manipulative advertising to “dumb down” members of the general public to the point where they either do not vote, or if they do vote, they s do not have enough knowledge to s llnes e make an informed decision.

s

he word “politics” is derived from the Greek word “politikos” which means the practice and theory of dealing with and influencing people. In most people’s minds, the word politics is connected only with governments and governing bureaucracies. Most people believe it is about manipulation, trickery and lying. Actually, personal politics is about how an individual communicates COUNSELLING, COACHING and connects emotionally and & HYPNOTHERAPY CENTRE intellectually with another or others. Richard M.

These are usually developed by www.ottawahypnosis.com what the Greek philosopher, Plato, www.ottawacounselling.com referred to as educating the complete, whole person, intellectually, morally, aesthetically and spiritually. Many years ago, I was fortunate enough to be involved in a holistic retreat at Sirius, www.SiriusCommunity.org in Amherst, Massachusetts, called, “The Personal Side of the Political and the Political Side of the Personal”. Since then, I have evolved a seamless life-style in which there is no separation at any level between my personality and my politics. The early Greeks, who invented democracy, maintained that true democracy is not possible without a high quality education system that nurtures and informs the whole person. In our modern day society, this includes a public broadcasting system, such as the CBC, the BBC and PBS. The very first thing that a tyrannical, oligarchical or monarchistic politician does when they get into office is attempt to marginalize or dismantle the education system and the public broadcasting system.

How to Increase Your Personal Power

P

ersonal power starts with self-awareness. Selfawareness is about getting to know yourself better, making the most of your strengths and overcoming your weaknesses. Personal empowerment and personal development go hand in hand, because as you discover more about yourself, you can develop strategies for overcoming the weaknesses you discern in yourself so they will not hold you back from living your best life. There are a number of areas which people tackle when they are seeking to empower themselves, including: • Mental • Emotional • Spiritual Let’s drill down further into each of these areas to see how you can dial down your weaknesses to increase your sense of empowerment. Mental We all had subjects we hated when we were at school. Often, the reason we hated them was because we felt we weren’t very good at them, or our grades didn’t reflect all of the hard work we were putting into math, science and so on. As adults, there might also be subjects we don’t like and therefore avoid. Avoiding them will never help, though, and might make things worse. Trying to do better through taking a course, getting coaching, or just spending a bit more time every day working on your weakness will minimize its impact on your life. If you struggle with math, for example, money issues should become a thing of the past as you learn more about basic budgeting and bookkeeping. Emotional Many people struggle with emotional weaknesses, such as anger management issues, mood disorders or troublesome aspects of their past that hold them back from living their best life. You can empower yourself to take control of these issues by gathering information, getting coaching or therapy, joining a support group, and more. Through tracking your progress, such as

how well you are getting your anger under control, you will learn just how powerful, not powerless, you really are.

Spiritual Many people have a spiritual or religious dimension to their lives, which can be both positive and negative. On the one hand, it gives them a sense of being a part of something greater than themselves. On the other hand, many organized religious carry a set of commandments many people fall short of, and focus on a sense of sin. Turn any “sin” into a strength by empowering yourself to overcome it. If you’ve been feeling stuck in any particular area of your life, that’s a sign of a weakness that can empower you to change your life for the better and become your best self.

came across this word recently and it struck a cord in me. Ikigai is a Japanese word that you will only find in the dialect of the people of Okinawa which is one of the many islands in Japan. The word is loosely translated to mean “what get’s you out of bed in the morning”. When you think about this for a moment in the context of retirement planning…this is a big idea! There is no word in the Okinawan dialect for retirement as there is in our Western culture. We in the West obsess about this important event in our life and many are not ready for this transition. The people of Okinawa have Ikigai. This word can be compared to our concept of “Life Purpose” which happens to be the final section of my book titled The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness. When I was doing the research for my book, I found that having a life purpose contributed immensely to one’s happiness but most importantly, to one’s longevity. The people of Okinawa are known around the world as the people with the longest life spans. This is not a coincidence. They attribute this to their ability to find a new life purpose once they leave the world of work. They are taught at a very young age to prepare themselves for this very important period of their live. And when they do the transition they already have something to go to, something that will get them out of bed in the morning. On page 50 of my book I have this quote that says “Retire to Something as Opposed to Retire from Something”. The subtle difference between the word To and From is the essence of proper retirement planning. Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawa-based Praxis Wealth Institute.

Healer Heal Thyself

Written by Alexis Nicol number of years ago I decided to study Reflexology. It has been many years since I had taken a course like this. I was reminded that studying takes a great deal of concentration and focus. That being said, during my Foot Reflexology training I was totally engrossed in learning all that I could. I read many articles, surfed the web – immersing myself in the reflexology world. We studied theory and anatomy to name but a few. After several months of studying we had our written exam. Next 60 hours of practical (hands-on) work needed to be completed, with the practical exam being the final hurdle. I thought the 60 hours would never end. What now takes me 45 minutes to do was taking me up to an hour and a half. With a time constraint I practiced fervently in order to meet the deadline. I had many clients and worked diligently to complete my practical hours. About three quarters of the way through I began to experience major discomfort and pain in my left wrist and forearm. I was struggling through it – wondering, if after all this studying and working so hard, that just maybe I wouldn’t be able to take my practical exam. The pain was excruciating. My reflexology career was doomed or so I thought.

I continued for about 10-15 minutes. Afterwards the pain was practically gone – a true Godsend. I finished my course, with flying colours and thankfully I am enjoying Reflexology still to this day.

The Planetary Wound of Gender Splitting by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.

T

he split between the masculine and feminine energies has pervaded many aspects of our earthly experiences. Gender splitting is at the core of all archontic deception strategies, which can lead to soul disconnection and fragmentation. When the masculine body (active) is not connected, balanced and integrated with the feminine body (receptive), one is not being acknowledged by the other. This is why we have individuals mired in the distraction of doing, and denying the heart, or being too passive, instead of openly flowing with love, and acting upon their inspired, intuitive wisdom. Many of us experienced this separation in childhood, and we did not learn to truly see and hear ourselves as Divine. • If a child is not seen, his/her feminine principle learns to disappear. • Not heard, and his/her feminine learns inner confusion. • If a child is not seen, his/her masculine principle learns to dominate. • Not heard, and his/her masculine learns to avoid. When there is unity of the Divine Mother and Divine Father within we have balanced, sacred marriage Hieros Gamos. We can then know ourselves as the Holy Christ-Sophia, the Divine Child that is sacred light, and sacred sound, and an expression of infinite love. There is no struggle to be seen and heard. We can let go. All we need to see and hear is from within. Our God-Self is our witness. Gender splitting is currently being amplified through negative manipulation: please pay attention to the ways that you may find yourself imbalanced into either polarity. For those in conscious relationships, be mindful that this program may be infiltrating the experiences dividing your harmony. Be peace.

Trump and Climate Change

Ian Prattis ith Donald Trump’s presidency, climate change in America is swiftly being placed on the back burner and will soon be out of the door. Trump has dubbed climate change as a hoax created by the Chinese government to make US manufacturing non-competitive. He tapped Myron Ebell to oversee the transition of the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) and instructed him to create a new mandate that rolls back the extensive environmental platform created by the Obama administration. Myron Ebell is not a scientist and does not believe in scientific facts endorsed by climate scientists. He talks glibly about the benefits of climate change and rightly earned the “climate criminal” tag from Greenpeace. He intends to destroy the US Clean Power Plan and all the other environmental measures put in place over the past eight years. He proposes to open up federal lands for logging and carbon extraction – oil, gas, coal – and rejects the Paris climate change accord. Conservation is not part of his vocabulary, so it is in the cards that the XL pipeline will be built, federal parks will end up drastically diminished, offshore drilling permits will be abundant while conservation measures are dumped world- wide. The strategic momentum engineered by Ebell makes America a rogue state. Its impact will destabilize global efforts to reign in climate change. Accused of “destroying our future” by the NY Times (November 11, 2016), Myron Ebell, America’s most prominent climate change skeptic, has an organization financed by Exxon and the coal industry. He plans to gut the EPA so that it serves his investors. The EPA will have nothing to do with “Protection” of the environment. It ushers in a new bottom line - protection of carbon profits for Trump’s corporate cronies. The

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: Will there ever be world peace?

SRI CHINMOY: The world is still millions of miles away from world peace. However, just because we do not see the reality all at once, that is no reason to become discouraged. When we look at the darkness that is all around and identify with the darkness, it is almost impossible for us to have faith that there will be light. But remember, before the day dawns, it is dark. At the end of the darkness there is light. The world is constantly evolving towards a higher standard of life. It is not moving in a straight line, but rather in a spiral. Therefore, at times this progress is not immediately noticeable. To our human mind it may seem confusing and baffling, but on the strength of our inner oneness with the world situation and world evolution, we can unmistakably see the world’s slow and steady progress. True, man-made destructive forces are everywhere but the creator of these destructive forces can easily become a creator of good forces. A negative force is not negative by nature; it is only a force that we use in a negative way. For example, a knife can be used to stab others or with the same knife one can cut fruits and share them with others. The first step in turning a negative force into a positive force is to remain silent long enough to feel the divine, illumining and fulfilling light within. The second step is to bring this light forward and create positive realities that will accelerate humanity’s progress towards perfection. As you and I dream of peace, even so, there are many other dreamers of peace. The dream of world peace will always remain new and progressive, for creation itself is an ever-transcending reality. The things you see with your human eyes can never be as important as the things you feel with your soulful heart. If we can open our heart’s door and our mind’s windows, we will be able to see the illumining and fulfilling light all around us. Then only we shall discover continual progress in humanity’s march towards world peace. Visit www.srichinmoy.org for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

eaves have shown their colors and now have left. Trees are bear and still. Nature is preparing for a new season and everything is in transition. Can you sense it all around you? How do you experience this time of year? Some people sense this season to be lifeless, even as the worse months of the year. It feels cold, wet, even depressing and many of us dread a long weary winter coming. When I used to teach at the Waldorf School (Ruldolf Steiner), following the natural rhythm of nature was part of the philosophy. And at this time of year, organizing our outside world was only one part of what we needed to do. The other part was to prepare inwardly by looking in and connecting with that inner light and force. This ensured strength and courage to face the months to come.

Trees never lose sight of who they are. Even bare in the fall and winter, they remain as always, generous, proud, and vibrant with endless resonance and vigor. And yet, learning to do the same can be challenging at times for human beings. So for those needing support in the months coming and not somber into an unnatural state, may I suggest to you, PLAYFULNESS. A single essence for when you are affected by the light decreasing. Emotionally you may have somber thoughts or feeling somewhat low in energy and not feeling as joyful. This essence brings color and light into your life. Another tree essence, especially for this time of year, is JOYFUL LIVING. An essence to invite us back into the moment, restoring faith and reminding us that no matter what life sustains us. We suggest taking the essence morning and night and as needed. To your emotional heath! Céline Cloutier • www.essences.ca • 819.319.6162

Post Operative Recovery and Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac

S

urgery is a powerful tool in the modern medical tool kit and is used today in a wide range of applications. Surgery for musculoskeletal conditions is called orthopedic surgery, and is used to treat musculoskeletal trauma, degenerative diseases, sports injuries, infections, tumours, and congenital disorders (disorders we are born with). This includes surgeries such as hip or knee replacement, spinal surgery or fusion, carpal tunnel release, or repair of tendons, ligaments, or cartilage. However, there are many, many other surgeries that are performed for a variety of reasons, such as to help relieve or prevent pain, to reduce a symptom, to improve some body function, or to diagnose conditions. With surgery comes certain post-operative side effects and risks. Some of the major concerns with surgery is dealing with post-surgery pain and the side effects of pain medications, as well as making a complete recovery from surgery and regaining our former mobility and functions. Doctors rely on powerful medications to relieve pain during and immediately after surgery, including opioids and anesthesia. Opioid pain medications are known to cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, pruritis (itch or a sensation that makes a person want to scratch), constipation, and sleepiness, symptoms which can cause difficulty in the recovery and interfere with our day-to-day life. Use of opioids and their side effects may also delay post-operative recovery. Acupuncture is an excellent option for post-operative recovery and has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of both post-operative pain and the side effects of opioid medications. Acupuncture is probably best known for the treatment of pain and it is indeed very effective for relieving pain and reducing the need for pain medications. Pain limits your ability to breathe deeply, cough, walk and perform the activities necessary for a speedy recovery, and acupuncture can help to manage the pain so that recovery can happen more quickly. Acupuncture can also treat the side effects of pain medications including dizziness, upset stomach or nausea, loss of appetite, pruritis (itching sensation), urinary incontinence, and digestive problems, making it an effective option for post-operative recovery. Acupuncture can also help with the body’s recovery following surgery. While surgical techniques have come a long way, surgery still remains a type of trauma that the body must recover and heal from afterwards.

Acupuncture helps to boost the immune system and to restore proper functioning to the body, and in postoperative care can help the body to recover and regain health more quickly. Acupuncture can also help with inflammation, decrease swelling and improve mobility and range of motion after surgery. This is important to recovery in order for a person to regain their full abilities and have full use of the body in the months down the road from surgery. Acupuncture may also help reduce adhesion formation and reduce scarring and scar tissue as the body heals from surgery. Research shows that acupuncture can indeed be very effective for post-operative recovery when surgery is followed by a series of acupuncture treatments, and it can also be beneficial to perform acupuncture a day or two before surgery. This ensures that the body is in a healthy state going into surgery in order to ensure a complete and healthy recovery.

Quantum-Touch® Therapy:

Working with Digestive issues

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach ecently, I’ve been considering the work I do with many clients who experience changes in their digestion system during and following sessions in my studio. They have not initially come to see me because of their digestion, but as we work together, and we hear all the gurgling and other digestive sounds. We become more and more aware of how effective QuantumTouch therapy affects our elimination system, that is specifically the colon .I work on the lower abdomen when working with pain in the lower back. I’ve subsequently done some research in this area, I’ve am aware of how often we treat ourselves with laxatives for constipation, and rather than eliminate the problem, we actually begin a process that can potentially cause much more serious consequences. I have been taking psyllium for regularity for many years, and when I had an colonoscopy several years ago, the results were so amazingly positive, my doctor asked me how I managed to have such a ‘clean colon’. When I told him about my work and my energy work practice and my use of psyllium, he told me that it was so much better than using laxatives, as so many other patients do. In my work, I have learned how the peristaltic action of the colon is the movement that moves material through the many meters of colon to have effective elimination.

When people use a lot of laxatives, the peristaltic action is no longer able to function as the colon gets stretched out. People may be told that their colons are very long, but they don’t understand why that has happened. With one of my clients, as I was working with her for a number of other conditions, told me that she kept feeling this upward movement in her lower body, as if something within her was being lifted. When she would get up from the table, it was clear that she seems taller, and that her lower body seemed to be somewhat more slender. She would say again, that she felt that something had moved upward. Finally I asked her about constipation and laxatives. She told me that when she was a child this was a regular practice, and that during a colonoscopy process, they had stopped it because they said her colon was just too long, and that they could only do a small part of it. I believe that we discovered what had happened in the past, and that it had now been resolved. I now regard all the gurgling sounds in the lower abdomen when I’m working on lower back issues to actually be created greater health in the colon. Aileen M.

Ottawa’s Future Destiny as the Spiritual Capital of Canada ONLINE Premiere of “Envisioning an Enlightened Canada” - Version 3.0

by Daniel Mauro ttawa is evolving into a pioneering spiritual hub for Canada. The area of land spanning our National Capital Region is sitting on very sacred ground. How do we know this? Several reasons. Let’s explore four of them. First, indigenous tribes from around North America met regularly at the Chaudière Falls and its Islands some 6000 years ago for celebratory rituals and spiritual practices. Second, this site sits on unceded Algonquin territory and is mathematically connected (distance-wise) to 3 sacred temple sites: the Giza Pyramid (in Egypt), the Angor Wat Temple (in Cambodia), and the Mayan Temple Complex (in Mexico). Third, a growing contingent of individuals in our Nation’s Capital – energy healers, lightworkers, peacemakers, visionaries, and spiritually gifted entrepreneurs – are emerging as wayshowers for this new age of consciousness. Fourth, our new prime minister Justin and his wife Sophie Grégoire, have been described as spiritually evolved, heart centered individuals. A positive sign of the times within the governing sphere. Combined, these 4 phenomena may be taken as modern clues demonstrating Ottawa’s spiritual coming of age. Our city shows great promise to become a spiritual mecca in the near future wherein seekers visit us from far and wide for spiritual nourishment, enlightened wisdom, advanced healing, and consciousness innovations. The energetic blueprint for Ottawa was planted long ago and now the conscious co-creative work towards ripening that vision begins.

by Malachai n navigating the intricacies of your life’s mission, the key is to bring forth the most authentic version of who you are in every moment. Your essence holds so much spiritual power if only you could access more of it. This process often involves shedding layers, resolving karma, healing emotional wounds, purifying the body temple. However, during so-called “choice points” or moments of grace you may shortcut the process by focusing on a different facet of who you believe yourself to be. In my path, I walk humbly as a modern day priest, mystic, and healer who gently coaxes individuals into their authentic power. The counselling approach is simple and relaxing, yet potent: We hold a clear loving space for those hidden aspects of you to emerge. To set up a session, contact malachai@cgocable.ca

people are dressing up in clown costumes and terrorizing local children such as the students of Pope Francis Catholic School in downtown Toronto. Ottawa & Toronto Hypnotist Luke Michael Howard PH.D is offering any children who have been affected by what is called "The Clownpocalypse" a free hypnosis session to help them overcome their phobia. "Coulrophobia" The fear of clowns is very real. It affects around 12% of people in North America. Says Like Michael Howard Ph.D a Clinical Hypnotherapist who has specialized in phobia removal for almost 20 years. The phobia can result in a state of panic, increase anxiety and stress. Where the affected people experience difficulty in respiration, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea and feelings of fear. It affects a lot of people especially Children this time of year. In 2008, a greatly reported University of Sheffield, England, review of 250 children between the age range of four and 16 found that almost all of the youngsters disliked and even feared images of clowns. The BBC’s

analysis featured a child psychologist who broadly announced, “Hardly any children like clowns. They are unfamiliar and come from a different era. They don't look funny, they just look odd.” "Coulrophobia" the Clown phobia is remarkably common. a lot of people assume that, because clowns are associated with carnivals and fun, and typically wear colorful clothes and over sized shoes and do funny things, children must like them. And some children do like them. But most often, children absolutely hate and are scared by them, and may get into screaming fits of anxiety even at the sight of one. From a psychologist’s point of view, a fear of clowns often starts off in the child years; there’s even an entry in the psychologists’ bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM, for a fear of clowns, although it’s under the umbrella category of a pediatric phobia of costumed characters (mascots, Donald duck). “It begins normally in children about the age of two, when they experience panic about being around new people, too. At that time, there's minds are still developing, they’re not always in a position to separate imagination from reality,” explains Dr . Brenda Wiederhold, a experienced psychologist who runs

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.

any of us in the New Age, Spiritual, Alternative community, would prefer to own our own homes, rather than continue to rent.  But, realistically, what are the choices?  Perhaps move 40 to 100kms. out of Ottawa, to find a less expensive house, in a small town or one in the country and ideally work in the local area.  Without work close to home, there is the time and expense of commuting back to Ottawa. 
 When you look at affordable housing in Ottawa, there are options for condo townhouses and condo apartments, selling for $160,000 up to $200,000.  These are usually older units, with monthly condo fees of $330 and up, which is combined with your monthly property taxes and utilities, for your total costs.  Then there is the concern about the management of individual condo complexes (some have a number of problems) and there is no regulation about how much the condo fees can be increased year to year.
 New condos are springing up everywhere is Ottawa, with very attractive, central locations.  The lower range of new condos, are selling for $225,000 and up, for a SMALL suite, with another $25,000 to $50,000 extra for ONE parking space.  Then monthly condo fees of $375 and up, along with taxes and utilities.  The housing prices  in Ottawa have definitely increased, from a fairly low level in the mid 1990s, I would say up to 4060% higher today.  Ok, it sure reduces the options, for those wanting to buy their first home but there are still options.


Ok, so the price is low, what about the monthly costs? Since the home owner does not own the land, there is a monthly fee of $440, sometimes less, but up to $550 or even $750.  This is something you want to find out, early on in your search, as some parks have higher fees than others.  A very POSITIVE consideration, is that the fee is made up of land rental, COMBINED with taxes. So that monthly $440 fee, for example, might be $380 land rental and $60 for property taxes.  The good thing is, you are protected from unforeseen costs.  The land rental is subject to Rent Control Restrictions, implemented by the Ontario Gov’t. and can only increase a small amount each year.  The property tax portion goes up very slowly, as the value of the mobile is low and increases due to reassement are only every few years. Just to highlight these figures, once you purchase a mobile, your monthly fee will be, for example, $550 per month, plus utilities.  You will be able to purchase a mobile home with 5% down, through CMHC, provided you have regular income from a job and an appropriate credit rating.  Not all banks provide mortgages for mobiles, but Scotiabank and TD will, at certain locations. In conclusion, this option is similar to living in a bungalow, as the mobiles are on one level, parking right at the door, only up a couple of steps to bring in groceries and at other times, luggage from those trips down south. Each home has a nice yard, with the option to build a patio or deck.  Since it is your own home you can decorate the inside and renovate it to suit your taste as well, you can also change the look on the outside, with permission from the park.  All this comes with a lright, time to “think outside the box”, for a very low initial cost, as well low monthly fees. realistic option.  Mobile Homes provide an amazing Because of rumour, hearsay and what is seen on TV, opportunity to own your own home.  There are many there is a negative connotation to living in a mobile mobile home parks in or a short distance from, Ottawa.  home.  Some people may tongue in cheek refer to trailer Living in a park, is like living in the country.  The parks trash, but for myself, as a resident of a mobile home are in separate communities, usually off main streets park, I refer to us as “High Class Trailer Trash”, as we and therefore no traffic noise, yet walking distance to all have done a fair bit of renovating/upgrading.

Horoscope for December 2016

Tip of the Month: December begins with the New Moon in Sagittarius (Nov 29.) underway promising a dynamic and eventful year end. All the ‘personal planets’ will change signs. Mercury in Sagittarius enters Capricorn on Dec 2nd then turns retrograde on the 19th. Mars moves from Aquarius to Pisces on the same day. Venus leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius on Dec. 7. Sun enters Capricorn on December 21st marking Winter Solstice. The New Moon in Capricorn occurs on Dec. 28. 2017 is year 1 of a 9-year cycle; get ready for a pivotal year.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Increasing the scope of your social and professional outreach is important now. Cultural interests peek earlier in the month. By Solstice, your mood sobers to make key moves to support a confident launch into 2017. Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20):  A steady flow of change in your overall status quo continues. You are pensive and perhaps a bit worried about things, yet you feel more empowered as well. Uncertainty could sneak back in this month.  Don’t let it; stay faithful. Gemini (May 21-June 20): Despite lingering tensions, you are able to focus on the good and have fun. Intuition will guide you to be extra selective in your communications as the month progresses. Despite the politics, your commitments deepen and confidences grow.  Cancer (June 21-July 22):  Key efforts to create beauty and harmony close to home feel important and right. Innovative ideas take hold. Sharing your dreams and schemes proves inspiring. You could get resentful if pressured to compromise too much from mid-month on. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):  Creative inspirations abound early this month. At worst, there are too many. Time management will prove necessary. Your ability to concentrate deepens as the month progresses and you are better able to attend to the details.

22

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22): You are enjoying a boost of confidence to confront lingering issues, fears and blocks. This inspires a steady flow of thoughts and strategies. Yet you have to give more than usual to succeed. Fortunately, you want to.  Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22):  December begins on a busy note. You are determined to breach barriers. Efforts to concentrate steadily increase. You want to play and socialize especially prior to Solstice. You are quieter and more reflective in the final stretch. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Digging deep into a well of faith and optimism feel right, perhaps even necessary. Hovering close to home brings peace and inspires appreciative sentiments. A playful, imaginative and creative mood grows steadily all month. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):  Practical interests  must progressively contend with social activities. The dilemma increases steadily all month. The social appeal takes the lead and you may well wrack-up the cards but, all things considered, you assess it is worth it. Capricorn (Dec.  22-Jan. 19):  Focused on business and other more serious matters, your mood is strategic and conservative. Key developments close to home are more important than social affairs. Important decisions are made before the year ends. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Themes of ethics, principles, justice and politics are forefront on your mind. You are concerned about the state of the world and your own future plans. Working inwardly to allay fears feels necessary. A bold resolve steadily grows. Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20):  Your career, social status, and reputation are important areas of focus. You are determined to increase social approval and improve business. Implementing new and better strategies feels important. Partying holds little appeal. By Michael O'Connor - sunstarastrology@gmail.com

Unlock Your Potential: Mind, Body and Soul

M

odern life can be a challenge. The stresses that we experience in our daily lives can create subconscious blocks. These blocks impair our ability to pursue the goals that we seek both in our personal and professional lives. However, thanks to the service that Iain Balmain is bringing to Canada, and to the U.S., many more people will be empowered in ways that are truly amazing. Iain has become no stranger to unlocking the hidden potential within us as human beings, thanks to a profound spiritual awakening. In the aftermath of having had such a transformative experience, Iain began working with an eclectic array of spiritual experts before founding Innerconsult.co.uk “I decided to dedicate my life to helping others find the same professional and personal satisfaction of inner development and insight,” says Iain. Mr Balmain does not present himself as a magician. Rather, he has sought to gain knowledge and wisdom, which he seeks to professionally share with others. Iain’s spiritual awakening has not only enabled him to perceive Earth’s energies in general, but also to help clients get in touch with their past lives in relationship to their present every day life challenges. Indeed, it is only when you get in touch with your divine self than you can realize the potential that is within you. The soul is truly an often ignored but integral part our human health and psychic potential. By bringing together your mind, body and soul in fluid synergistic harmony, you enable yourself to have an elevated state of consciousness that will provide you with clarity. In so doing, you will be able to make the kind of decisions that will be better for you. Through Iain Balmain, take yourself on a voyage of self-discovery that will be self-affirming, enjoyable, and potentially and financially rewarding. Upon review, Iain Balmain’s rates are at bargain basement prices when you factor in how many lives he has helped professionally to financially better their positions while also saving time and money pursuing fruitful directions. As humans, time is indeed precious to us all, and the more we can save and spend in productive ways, the more we will feel self-fulfilled. So, if you’re not getting the advice that you feel you need from family, friends, secular counsellors like therapists or religious advisors like pastors, ministers, priests, rabbis and imams, why not explore the services of Iain Balmain today?

Good Grief: Feel to Heal By Rev. Roxanne Buckle

T

he death of someone or something precious to you is not something that you will “overcome” or “let go of.” The loss of that which we have loved doesn’t call out to be “resolved” or “explained,” but to be experienced. Acknowledging and feeling our losses is necessary for healing. In fact, the resistance to grief can cause more suffering than the pain itself. As difficult as it is, we must surrender to what is. As Helen Keller said, “The only way to the other side is through.” Grief is a natural reaction to loss. As spiritual beings having a human life experience, we live in the paradox of the infinite, eternal, permanent nature of spirit and the impermanence of the physical realm. These impermanent aspects of human existence show up in more than the loss of physical bodies. There are many other losses including relationships, a career, a dream, an object, innocence, pets... From Finding Yourself in Transition, “Everything in this phenomenal world has at least one thing in common: it all had a beginning, and it all will come to an end.” Emotion is energy in motion. When emotions, particularly the emotions experienced with loss, are

not processed, they get carried in our body, psyche and soul. If denied expression, these emotions resurface. We must honour our loss to experience the new beginning or the good that awaits. It’s easy to see Spirit present in nature and to believe that for new leaves to sprout, the old must die. When everything gets covered in snow is Sprit still present? Dying is a natural part of the cycle of life. Our spiritual growth comes in our awareness of this principle in every moment. (excepted from a Sunday lesson by Rev. Roxanne Buckle at Unityottawa.org)

New & Powerful Qi-Matic Qi-matic Research Center PRESENTS Healing Energies For You

Q

igong Master James Foo (known as Sifu James) has been coming to Ottawa from Toronto for the past five years to share his unique Qi-Matic Qigong healing knowledge and energy healing techniques in weekend workshops (Levels 1-5), and retreats. Attendees learn simple, effective, energy frequency-based tools for personal healing and to heal others. Adapting to the New Earth Energies The Earth’s energy is shifting quickly. Sifu James is dedicated to helping humanity adjust smoothly to this incoming, high-frequency energy. Through the mechanism of free webcasts (or optionally connect by phone) he has been helping people around the world raise their vibrations to adapt to the new frequencies. People can sign up to participate in these free energy transmissions by joining the community at Masterpiecelife.com in order to receive emails describing date, time, and connection instructions. Energy Paper Matrices Sifu James is a dedicated researcher, continuously investigating and perfecting simple and easy ways to achieve healing. One example is his popular, downloadable energy papers, available at JamesFoo.ca. DNA Energizer Matrix During the summer of 2016, Sifu James perfected two stronger matrices: a pure (love) energy matrix and a very powerful DNA Energizer matrix. After testing them on himself and volunteers, the DNA Energizer matrix was transferred into stickers which must be imprinted with an individual’s DNA through an activation process. At his October and November 2016 workshops, Sifu James activated stickers for participants to attach to pendants (not supplied) that they can wear next to their bodies. The participants then directed “boosted” energy to heal themselves or others. Energy-sensitive participants reported that the DNA Energizer energy is very powerful, and they could feel it moving through their bodies as the energy accelerated repair of the physical bodies. Testimonial A very heart warming testimonial is from an October workshop student who has been doing energy healing on a cancer client with some results. The client was hospitalized since September and was totally bedridden.During the Sunday workshop practice session,the student did distance healing using her DNA Energizer .The next day the student received an email was that this client was up walking on her own and was scheduled to be released from the hospital in a few days!

Igniting The Healing Mindset: Healing From The Inside Out By Ann Jarvis of The Nourished Soul

O

ur thoughts about our health are just as important, if not more important that our health itself. For example, I know lots of people who rigorously research their condition. They go on chat boards and read about all of the ways in which their particular condition can manifest and the effects it can have on them. That thinking is fueled by the sickness mindset. It’s easy enough to get caught up in this mindset. In fact, the conventional medical mindset is steeped in this thinking. You are broken down into body parts and systems. You are typically not looked at as a whole person who has thoughts, feelings, emotional histories, old traumas, wants, needs or wishes for yourself. You are prescribed a medication or booked in for a procedure or surgery and off you go. There’s just not much thought given to a crucial piece of the puzzle; the one that can allow you to heal almost anything. I should know. I’ve been there. A million times. Having had a chronic, autoimmune illness for over 20 years, I know this system. I know the mindset of: It doesn’t matter what you eat. It doesn’t matter what you think. It doesn’t matter how you move your body. All that is hoped for is that you can get to a place where your symptoms are managed. Notice I said ‘symptoms’ and not health. And notice I said ‘managed’ and not healed. There’s a BIG difference. When you switch gears to a healing mindset, everything changes. Here’s a day in the life of someone who has ignited the healing mindset. You wake up in the morning and you remember that you are not a victim. You are a warrior. You are a branch on the tree of life that has everything you require to live in deep, abundant health. You take a few minutes to just be with yourself and feel around for what is “up” within you today. You acknowledge the feelings, emotions, physical sensations and even your pain. You meet it without labeling it or judging it. It’s curiosity; like you’ve just sat down in a movie theatre to watch a show. Because you’ve moved your mindset from one of Victim to one of Warrior, there is no struggle as to what you decide to feed yourself for breakfast that morning (or any other morning). You no longer view eating well as having to ‘give up’ crappy food. Rather, you know what you have to gain by eating well and feeding your body the fuel that it needs in order to thrive. You go outside in the morning sun and remind yourself that you are an extension of the natural world and thereby work in concert with natural laws. That means eating food from nature (not from food manufacturing plants); moving your body the way it was meant to move (like walking,

26

running, bouncing, and jumping); meeting up with people in your community and supporting and loving each other; unplugging from your various technologies and gadgets throughout the day and putting them away, completely, by dinnertime; remembering to do as many pleasurable things throughout your day as you see to your responsibilities. You check in with your intuition often. Have you been having persistent gut feelings about something? Does something keep whispering in your ear again and again? In the healing mindset, that intuition is not ignored. Even if it flies in the face of some conventional dogma, you listen and you act on it because you know and remember that the wisest physician you have access to is YOU. You look at all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon you in this lifetime and you give heartfelt thanks. You do this because you know that when you focus upon what is working well, more wellness comes forth. You go to bed that evening, having emptied out the contents of your day (for some, that means writing it out on paper so their minds and bodies can rest at night) and look deep into your body. You thank your body for working tirelessly for you. Amongst the onslaught of the industrial age that we live in, we see that our bodies are, indeed, incredible warriors. They work on our behalf to balance, renew, regenerate, heal and keep us alive every second of every hour of every day of our lives. We bestow heartfelt thanks and gratitude for our bodies, our wisdom and our lives. A shift in mindset can shift an entire life. It can shift a medical diagnosis or condition and can do it quickly. You suddenly want to put whole, fresh, nutrient-dense foods into your body. You find yourself wanting to, even needing to move your body in certain ways. You find yourself unplugging and not feeling guilty about it because your peace of mind is more important than responding to someone on Facebook. It’s your decision. You can sit in the sickness mindset. Or you can change everything and sit in healing mindset. Either way, your body and mind will unconditionally love you through either. Personally, I’d rather be loved through health.

The Evolutionary Method Mastery Healing Program

A

“All disease begins in the gut.” Hippocrates

fter having had a chronic, digestive, autoimmune illness for nearly 20 years, I completely healed my “incurable” disease and am now living with incredible health, vitality and joy. I have found what works and what doesn’t; what the body and mind need to heal and what prevents that healing. This program is like a fire starter that, with your commitment, can completely change the way your body functions. In this program, we draw upon the wisdom of Evolutionary (ancestral) diet, movement and socialization in order to get your body back to a state of vibrant health and wholeness.

This Personal, One on One Program Is Right For You If: • You’ve had persistent digestive issues (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, unexplained or hard to get rid of belly fat, ADHD, chronic skin issues (eczema, acne, psoriasis), ear infections, Autoimmune Disorders) • You’ve tried conventional medicine and have not seen resolution to your struggles • You want to see what the body is capable of doing when you give it the proper tools, diet and nourishment • You want to heal your body at the root of the dysfunction, rather than suppress your symptoms • You’re tired of feeling tired all the time and are ready to step into the fullness of your being This program requires a 3 month commitment from you. It requires you to be open to finding out what emotional triggers you are still dealing with (by which your body has been compensating through illness or discomfort). It allows you to see exactly what your ideal diet looks like and what your body needs to be properly nourished. This program gives you every single tool that you will require to recover and move into a thriving and healthy space. Specifically, during the 3 months you will learn and receive: • Exactly what foods are healing your belly and which foods are hurting your belly • A bio-individual diet and meal plan that allows you to shop and prepare amazing meals that will finally nourish your body and mind • Discover what your cravings mean and how to see them from a different perspective so you can heal them • Learn how the environment you live and work in affects you and how to manage it • Learn about the importance of ancestral movement and find out what kinds of movement best suits your body type • Delve into how your social connections are feeding you. Are they leaving you hungry or happy? • How your past traumas and wounds may still be playing a role in your body and how to let them go I invite you for a 20 minute FREE Discovery Session. During this session, I learn a little bit about you and you learn a little bit about me. We see if we jive together and I fill you in on what our work together would look like. I invite you to come and see what’s possible for your life!

Numerology Forecast for December 2016

A

dd the day of your birth to the month of your birth. Then add the number 3 for the month of DEC. NOTE – If you’re final number adds up to double digits, add the two numbers together again until you get a single number. If you still have trouble, email me at lbaird@istar.ca Important note: This information is based on your current monthly cycle according to the laws of numerology. If you email me at (Lbaird@istar.ca) I will send you additional free information for the current year that you are in for 2016. Please send your day and month of birth. Free monthly newsletter also available. 1. Rough ride, eh? I know that this year was difficult for you, but it would be weird if it was not. This is one of the toughest influences. Your stresses and worries 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. Try to be extra generous to your special clients, friends and loved ones this Christmas. If you can’t afford to spend money on them spend more time. Diplomacy is required in all your relationships. If you are pushy they 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. Can you feel it starting? 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 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 creativity next year. Next year it is time of “rebirthing of self”. 6. Are you thinking of 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 rethink how you are going to do this. Home, relationship 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. Get ready as Feb. brings “change”. 8. Some 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. It is the perfect time to retire or get a new job, also. 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 Uncle Bill and the clan and invite them for some holiday fun. 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. Many are getting ready to move at this time.

The Light in the Darkness By Rupa

I

n the deep dark winter night we look for the light, we look for the bright warm home. When we are confused, bewildered, stressed or lonely, who do we look for? Who is able to give us the light of hope and the light of knowledge? To understand spirituality is a learning process. Any form of learning needs a teacher. A spiritual teacher is the person who gives us the light of knowledge to dispel darkness. Some people have a lot of knowledge but when things happen they don’t know how to apply the knowledge. They will complain, hide or escape rather than face and solve the problem. For these people, knowledge is only a show box for decoration. Only a person who has direct understanding and experience of the Self, a person who is able to face reality, beyond body, mind, intelligence and false ego, can be a spiritual teacher. The duty of a spiritual teacher is to direct the student along the Path, and to clarify confusion. We cannot choose a spiritual teacher simply because the person is famous or has a lot of followers. We have to make sure the person is able to guide the Self, to walk through the journey together personally with us. A spiritual teacher can show us the Way by the way he/she is living. From primary school to graduating from university takes more than 15 years. Understanding spiritual knowledge will take even longer. This Self-realization learning process could be a life long process. But even just a little bit of understanding will save us from the perplexities of life. We will never lose what we gain. The practice can lead us to inner peace and bliss. When we gain true spiritual knowledge, we can make proper decisions any time and not be affected by the modes of nature.

Recovering from Election Trauma

Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psycho-spiritual Counsellor, Coach, Teacher, Healer

I

don’t know about you, but I found the US election drama exhausting. Not only, exhausting but depressing. Whether you followed the main stream media or delved deeper into alternative news, it was a gong show. It must certainly did not bring out the best in humanity. I felt almost dirty just observing the ugliness between the two parties. Needless to say, I, for one am, very grateful the election is over and I can stop my foolish fascination with this demoralizing ego-based process. I am ashamed of myself for getting emotionally involved. Now I return to my normal, peaceful life finding love, kindness and compassion everywhere. I really do love humanity. I see the light glimmering in everyone’s eyes if I slow down, take time and truly look. Add a smile to that process and you have a recognition, a heart to heart connection that feeds each one of us. Where I used to hate shopping particularly around Christmas time when it got so busy and stressful, I now welcome every possible opportunity to smile, open my heart and connect with my fellow travelers along this wild and wonderful journey. A smile when needed can change the life of a complete stranger who just needed to know someone cares. When I have a hard time connecting to others is when I am having a hard time being in touch with myself. I am not taking quiet time for myself, not taking the time to nurture myself with clean water, clean, fresh, live food and not taking time to soak in the healing ions of nature. Too much time working, too much time in front of screens taking in the information of other people rather than accessing my own inner wisdom. Not meditating, singing, dancing---- not being. Too much doing. Too much time in my head. Getting stuck in my head is exactly what happened to me with all the election hype.

Holiday Mini-Mediations

(Back by popular demand – my 2011 Christmas column) aren and Jack had one immediate goal - they wanted to get through the first Christmas following their separation with their values, their wallets and their sanity intact. They had separated a month before and were working in mediation on the major issues arising from their separation: long-term parenting arrangements, division of their assets and debts, and ongoing financial support arrangements. The process was going well, but the holidays were approaching and it was clear they would not finalize their discussions and sign a final Separation Agreement until the new year. In the meantime, there were a number of immediate issues that needed to be addressed. How would they share time over the holidays with their two children, Katie, 10, and Jeremy, 6? Jack’s parents lived in Sudbury – would he be able to go visit them with the children as he had always done? Karen wanted to spend Christmas Day with her new boyfriend and the children together; Jack thought it was too soon to introduce this new person to the children. They even disagreed over who should have “custody” of the special tree ornaments they had bought together for their first Christmas. In addition, Karen and Jack had some financial disagreements. Jack thought the trip to Sudbury should be a joint expense, as it had always been in the past, even though this time Karen would not be going. Jeremy wanted a very expensive video game for Christmas, which both Karen and Jack had always been opposed to. Should they give in this time to help him through the first Christmas after his parents’ separation? The solution to this situation was to schedule a “minimediation” within Karen and Jack’s larger mediation just to deal with these holiday issues. They temporarily put aside the issues they had been working on in their main mediation in order to focus on these “small” matters. They quickly saw that these were not trivial concerns. In fact, some of these “molehills” were threatening to become “mountains.” Yet, despite their stress and differences of opinion, Jack and Karen had one important advantage in their favour. They recognized that these seemingly small issues could become bigger problems that threatened to derail their main mediation if left unattended. In this respect they were very wise. Mediation is not just for big disputes. It’s also for little disputes before they become big disputes. Karen and |Jack recognized they needed a mini-mediation now in order to avoid the necessity of a major mediation later. We have all heard the saying, “God is in the details,” meaning that whatever one does should be done thoroughly and carefully. Karen and Jack spent two hours in mediation

First, they significantly reduced the day to day stresses that could have occurred over the holidays. Second, with just a little guidance, they were able to discuss their disagreements in a way that stayed true to their values. Third, they were able to carry over their fundamentally positive feelings about each other as parents into their main mediation when they resumed this in January and were able to reach mutually acceptable terms for their final Separation Agreement fairly quickly. Whatever your religion, whatever your family issues are - and even if you’re not separating - could you benefit from a holiday mini-mediation? No disagreements are too small to ignore.

Labels and Mental Health

I

t's ok to know a schizophrenic person. It's ok to know a person with manic depression or with a brain trauma. It's ok to be in the same room. If you do, don't be surprised when they talk to you. It's normal. If you are their friend, it's ok to be with them. In fact they can be just as normal as everyone else. If you see them just act the way you normally do. Don't change. It's important not to change your behaviour. So do not fear them. If you do it’s ok. Don't speak. Speech is a sign. Some say it's good, some say it's not good. Only we can tell. People who have worked with mental illness. If I am working with it, I know when a person is in fear. It's not a fear they will talk about. So I don't ask. We do not discuss mental illness in my clinic because everyone has been affected by it somehow. It's a mental illness because it's a label. So it's not true. We do not believe you are mental. You are a person. It's just a symptom. I am careful about the need to talk about it. We do not focus on labels. Labels come and go. People remain. One day a new diagnosis. So for me it's just one thing. A deep need. I don't care what the label is. It's not you. I say. Who cares what they say? I cannot be top overly concerned by the fear of a symptom which comes and goes.  I am taught a serious lesson. I am the reason I am here.

Essential Oils for the Spirit

T

he power of essential oils cannot be underestimated. These plant extracts can help with all sorts of conditions, and have been used for thousands of years. They act on all levels: physical, emotional and spiritual. Many essential oils have been used in practices like meditation because they evoke a deep calmness, conducive to inner reflection. Frankincense and myrrh are two traditional oils used in this way, and we know how valued they were and are in middle east culture. Spikenard has a very ancient history as well. It is said that Mary Magdelene washed Jesus’s feet with this plant. Sage and palo santo are great for clearing negative energy. If you don’t know palo santo, you should! It is derived from the fallen branches of a tree in South America that shamans in that part of the world use instead our our northern counterparts sage and sweetgrass. Cedarwood, patchouli and vetiver can also be used to ground and refine one’s focus. If calming oils are needed, vetiver is a good choice here too. Chamomile and lavender are also great for a relaxed

46

state of mind, (and preparation for a good night’s sleep too!). Breathwork, an essential part of meditation, yoga and other practices, is also central to aromatherapy, so this is a perfect pairing. Of course, meditation and inward reflection work can also help with stress relief and provide help with anxiety or insomnia. And guess what?! So can essential oils! In addition to lavender, ylang ylang, clary sage, jasmine, rose and neroli are wonderful additions to a blend. Some are precious oils, and therefore expensive (cost is dictated by the amount of plant material required to produce the essential oil), but you may choose to use a few drops as opposed to making it the bulk of your blend. Please take the time to breathe, to be calm, and to meditate. You are worth it.

WHO YOU TRULY ARE Channelled by Lisa Virtue

K

nowing who you are is a fundamental. How is it that knowing your true self could be anything but clear? Yet does it not feel that way many times? Our guidance in this article is to help you understand more about who you are, to aid in clarity. That which you are is a consciousness. Consciousness that is focused here in this body, in this life that you are living. You are never apart from who you truly are. You are consciousness experiencing life here in the physical. That is the extent of it. The details are the artwork. The playground. Consciousness is the canvas and the details you focus on become the art placed upon that canvas. What is the canvas made of? Many of you will say “light”. You could say that love is the canvas and that would be quite accurate. The make up of vibrational energy is a resonance of pure love. So as you metaphorically paint on this canvas, the paint itself is also love. The art is about your choices and how you are looking at things. Your brushes are made up of the accumulation of life experience. Your tools… that have come about as a result of what you have experienced in your life. Your unique brushes paint in your unique way, your style. Your perception of what you paint is influenced by, of course, what you have experienced. So, who are you truly? You are the great perceiver focussing in this unique way to create, to make sense of things from the vantage point of you and your uniqueness. When things are not feeling right in your life and you are wondering who you are, why you are here in the first place, because something is not quite sitting right within you, it is time to look beneath the paint to the canvas once again. To remember that it is all love. Remind yourself that you are love as well and you are choosing to focus here for the experience of it. Choose love, or in other words, choose from the point of view that your most inner self feels best about. Then as you are creating you are more likely to be in that vantage point that seems most familiar and resonant to you.

At any time you can choose to paint with colours that are outside the spectrum of what you feel good with. This then brings up a sense of things not being quite aligned. You are still creating art and all art has value. As the artist however, why not choose the art that feels right to you. Paint your art with your brushes, on your canvas so that you create pictures that please you. Releasing the need to believe that there is a perfect way. The nuances of your journey actually provide interest. It is impossible to have an unworthy piece of art. Allow yourself that freedom and the leeway to play with what feels right to you. Be enthused and excited and in joy about creating from your passion, from your preferences. At the end of your days as you look back on all of your creations, you will see the progression through your pieces of art. It is always so, there is always movement. It will always shift and change and that is a good thing. So enjoy the art you are creating now and let it inspire you to tomorrow’s art, and so on. You are beautiful artists, all of you and we enjoy each creation. With great love, Your Divine Audience Blessings abound for you all.
