ESSENTIAL OILS:

Love Potion Number 9?

I

have talked about the therapeutic aspects of essential oils in several of my articles, but did you know they also act on an emotional level? And an energetic level? These gifts from nature are so versatile, it is hard to imagine anything they can’t help!
 Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I thought I would share some information to help you create blends for that special someone. Ylang ylang, Cananga oderata, literally means flower of flowers. As well as lowering high blood pressure, general skin care and calming the central nervous system, it is also toted as an aphrodisiac. I find ylang ylang on its own is really overpowering. If you wish to balance out its intensity, it blends well with lavender and citrus oils. My favourite combination is with lime and black pepper! 
Patchouli, Postemon cablin, is another oil of many talents. It is also useful in skincare, as well as repelling insects and feelings of exhaustion. Patchouli is indicated in cases of frigidity, and, as with ylang ylang can be a pretty intense aroma on its own. Patchouli blends well with lavender, orange and bergamot, to name a few.
I tend to think of frankincense (Boswellia carteri) primarily as a spiritual oil, although it is also excellent for pulmonary congestion and digestive aid. In terms of enhancing sexuality, frankincense lessens anxiety, tension and stress-all conducive to a romantic interlude.
Geranium is a wonderful balancer: for hormones and for skin. Because of its hormonal effect, geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) may help to balance out moods, and so is included here. Everyone knows lavender, a mood enhancer and calming oil. There are many different species: the two best known being Lavandula angustifolia and Lavendula officinalis. Lavender also has wonderful skin cell regenerating properties, and is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so useful with injuries.
The flower kingdom also gives us rose, jasmine and neroli. Rose is a heart-centered oil and, like geranium and lavender has an affinity with the female

2

reproductive system. The best known species are Rosa damascena and Rosa centifolia. The florals are pretty easy to blend with other oils. Jasmine is considered an aphrodisiac. Common species are grandiflorum and sambac. Jasmine Grandiflorum flowers bloom in the early dawn as opposed to Sambac which blooms in the evening. Jasmine’s ability to be an antidepressant may help its reputation as an aphrodisiac. It is also wonderful for coughs and laryngitis, and is helpful for most skin types. 
Clary sage is included because it is a good nerve tonic, as well as an antidepressant and sedative. It does have the reputation of being an aphrodisiac, and this may come from the aforementioned characteristics, as well as its ability to balance out the female reproductive system. Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) has an unusual scent that blends well with the citrus oils, among others. I would be remiss if I did not mention sandalwood in this article. We carry both Australian and East Indian varieties. Sandalwood is well known as an aphrodisiac, helping with impotence and frigidity. Its scent is very gentle, and combines well with most other oils.
You may be beginning to see a pattern here: many of the oils are relaxing! Scent is very powerful on its own, but the advantage of the essential oils is that they have therapeutic properties as well. I welcome you to come in and experience the scent of these oils firsthand!

Develop Spiritual Wellness Create Balance in Your Life

3/7/2018

2018MOIRA_TONEAd.jpg

re you searching for deeper spiritual meaning in your life? You are not alone; the hectic demands of life in the 21st-century has made many people feel disconnected. Perhaps what you need is a spiritual connection to bring about a sense of balance and completion in your life. Many people confuse spirituality with religion and believe that spiritual wellness can only come from religious beliefs. However, spiritual balance comes from more than subscribing to a religion. Some people do seek religion for their spirituality, but spirituality can also be achieved without belonging to a specific religion. How to Develop Spiritual Wellness Essentially, developing spiritual wellness means working toward identifying what you believe in and how well those beliefs can give you inner strength through even the roughest patches in life. How do we achieve spiritual wellness? Each of us must develop our spirituality in our own way. Your chosen path may take you on a different journey than someone else’s. When you are ready to begin your journey toward spiritual wellness, here are some suggestions to consider: 1. Question the purpose of your existence. Ask yourself a few key questions as you go on a quest to achieve balance through spiritual wellness. Selfexploration is the key to developing your spiritual balance. Ask yourself: • What defines me? • What is the purpose of my existence on this planet? • What do I want out of life?

2. Connect to what is meaningful. After you have answered those questions, your next mission is to connect to and identify with the things in life that you want to represent you. Do you believe in helping others? Is it your interest to sacrifice the physical aspects of life to gain spiritual strength? Put your answers to these questions to work. Becoming spiritually strong involves believing in something. It involves identifying your purpose and working towards achieving that purpose. Most importantly, it involves becoming truly happy with your life. Achieving spiritual wellness is not an overnight process. With determination and dedication, you will find yourself connecting with another aspect of your existence that you never realized. More and more things will become clearer to you and you will start to experience true inner peace, no matter what challenges you are faced with!!

F

ebruary is known for being the month of Love and has inspired me to express my interpretation of the meaning of this somewhat controversial word and sentiment. The following comes from my humble point of view. Written below and simply put, I express to you what Divine Love means to me. Love IS the essence of ALL life – It is the Divine Power from which we are created. Over the span of humanity we have clouded the true meaning of Love. Growing up many of us are led to believe that if we follow all the rules and be good we will in turn receive love. This is not real love as it is conditional. It can teach us to become manipulative, selfish, depressed, dependant, or a myriad of other descriptions in order to gain “love”. On an internal level we are confused about whether or not we are deserving of love. We may feel guilt, fear or judgement. We aren’t understanding that we don’t need to look outside of ourselves for love. We are the LOVE we are searching for. Love is within each of us. IT is our truest/purest Self - It is who we are. We are all motivated by Love. It is our choice whether to listen to Its or the egos messages. When acting with the power of Love our lives and those we touch are more empowered. We are more creative, happy and peaceful. It is a freedom like no other. Loves energy is palatable, it can be felt in so many ways; it is like a warm embrace that lights up our hearts, it is inspiring and life enhancing and emanates from our Source. If you reflect in the moment, you will innately know when you or anyone else is acting from a place of love or ego. Try to remember that Love is not conditional or judgemental, It is pure and humble. During this month and with continued presence, might we all strive to realize (bring to fruition) the Divine Love residing within ourselves. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. 613-263-7925 www.firstlighthealing.com

SRI CHINMOY: If you want to have love for all humanity, then you should know how everybody came into existence. Humanity came into existence from the Source and that Source is God. When you love God, that means that you are watering the root. So naturally all the branches and leaves will get water also. If you want to love your neighbour, or your wife, husband or child then you have to love God first. God is the Source. If you do not go to the Source, who is all Love, then it will just be words when you say, “I love you, I love you.” There is no way for any human being to establish real love except by becoming one with God’s Love. Through God, you can have a free access to any individual on earth and, at that time, your love will be most pure and most effective. To see, feel and become love, every day when you meditate, please say the word ‘love’ before you start your meditation. When you utter the word ‘love’, try to feel that your arms, your legs, your eyes and every part of you has increased its capacity. Take the arm, for example. The arm means strength. When you say the word ‘love’, you have to feel that your arms have become stronger—not for striking anybody, but for working more for humanity. Then concentrate on your eyes and try to feel that you are using your eyes to see only good things in everybody. When you concentrate on your ears, feel that you want to hear only good, encouraging and inspiring things. If somebody says bad things, you will just keep your ears closed. Then afterwards, try to concentrate on your inner consciousness. Try to expand it. First you repeat the word 'love' in a human way with your body, and then you repeat it in a divine way, with your inner consciousness. Automatically you will have love for God, and when you have love for God, you will feel love for humanity. Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Opening Our Eyes by Lynne Cardinal

Your great mistake is to act the drama as if you were alone. - David Whyte from the poem: Everything is Waiting for You

O

ne of my favorite poets is David Whyte. He has the ability to transmit a vision, opening in us new ways to see, feel and experience life. In his excellent poem “Everything is Waiting for You” he leads us away from the tendency to feel like we are alone, inviting us to see things differently. To open to a completely new experience and access a sense of intimate connection with our surroundings. This feels refreshing, liberating, and helps us heal our wounds and release our fears and our sense of separation. I have also experienced this sense of solitude in my life. You may have also felt it too, feeling at times disconnected with life, your community, friends, or intimate partner. Life is challenging! This lack of connection generates a sense of aloneness, perhaps of feeling abandoned, not appreciated or loved. I see it all in the school of life while constantly learning, and ultimately returning to love and to a sense of unity or oneness with all. I have taken numerous trainings and studied with various teachers during my life. Despite some real disappointments or disillusionments in some instances, I can say that I have learned from all of them. I admittedly also learned from the disillusionments! I also studied and trained in individual and collective trauma work and learned about the transgenerational influences we all carry. From this great exploration, I felt that I was able to understand myself better, and to understand others as well. We all carry a certain degree of hurt from our past, from our parents, and influences

from generations drifting far into the past. I also believe that we also are following a path, incarnation after incarnation. And that we are all interrelated. We are all in this together. It is a great journey. Healing our wounds and the burdens we carry will help us move forward and connect with the truth, to see more clearly. We are not alone and we can help each other’s tremendously -don’t be afraid to ask for help. Lynne Cardinal holds client sessions in Hull and Stittsville in Coaching, Stress management, Hypnosis and Meditation.

Awakening Your Potential 9


A Relationship with Your Soulful/Human Self

I

n a book about a Mohawk Chief, it is inferred that to live a life focused mostly on human earthy ways is to be “human” but to live a life with Spirit-infused energy along with the earthy Human, is to be a “Human Being”. Mother Teresa, for example, was a Human Being – serving human life and needs through her Spirit infused actions. The story in the above-mentioned book goes on to say that because of the duality of who we are, we can never get rid of one of the two sides – like a coin, living on Earth we are two-sided. We live in a world of contrasts – light and dark (and anything in between) - in all aspects of living. Chief Leon Shenendoah is known to have said that to try to get rid of the “shadow/human energy” is not only impossible but to try to do so brings trouble. What needs to be taught is how to manage the two energies, the Human and Soulful, in order to have a vibrational balanced Life, which includes the mental, emotional, physical, and Spirit/Soul energy. When we speak of relationships, we tend to focus on how we are with other people and that is a valid point. But how compassionate are you towards your Self? How in tune are you and how knowledgeable are you about your personal energetic mix? As we go through life, we express our Spirit/Soul components in many ways. All individuals using their skills and talents in a positive way, in any subject matter, are actually fulfilling their Spirit/Soul mission. Having a relationship with our “Energetic Being” is a sacred experience that is absolutely not tied to religion but rather, service and learning life lessons that come with it. It is simply doing what you have come to do and doing your best doing it. As you mature, you grow and your service changes as can your mission take on a different tangent. The quick pace of change on the planet right now can bring on confusion, as it can be difficult to know how “to be” in terms of where these new contrasts are taking

us. The language of the Soul and its study can provide a guide and a counter-balance to stop the pendulum from swinging too far into materialism and/or technology. Does it ask you to stop being Human and having Human needs? Does it ask you to go backwards in time? Absolutely not! As a matter of fact, to develop a balanced relationship with all the energetic aspects of yourself can actually bring clarity and help you move forward as you get what you need, guilt-free! This is a time of great opportunity. But you cannot know that until you become curious enough to explore the balanced Soulful/Human path of self-discovery. How curious are you?

Are You Arguing with Life? by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR)

L

ife happens – a constant flow of joyful and painful change, and everything in between. Human resistance is as certain as change, because when the negative ego dislikes anything that is unfolding in life, whether it’s minor or profound, it seeks a means to avoid it. Unfortunately, wanting things to be different than they are through ego-control only amplifies trying circumstances and creates suffering. Ego can make a mountain out of molehill, and protest almost anything. To the conscious traveler, being reminded that resistance is futile is only somewhat intellectually helpful. Trying to circumvent your resistance is only more resistance. So how do you respond to your ego? Defining resistance clarifies all else. Ego resistance is rich in its expressions: it can be described as blocking your own path, swimming against the tide, digging in your heels, getting in your own way, or refusing to step past the edge of your comfort zone. Resistance can take on many nuances: we can obstruct, strike out, slow things down, struggle, or rebuff. When I heard spiritual teacher Adyashanti refer to it as “arguing with life”, it seemed to be an equally accurate description for ego’s dissatisfaction with big change as much as its grumblings about daily life. No matter how you describe it, the bottom line is that when you are resisting, you are unwilling to accept what is and you move against the flow of experiencing. Personally, it helps me to define resistance as being out of alignment with one’s Highest Self. In other words, if you accept that there is a higher purpose in your experiences, then you trust that whatever is present in your life is an opportunity and choice-point for your Highest Good. It increases your willingness to respond from your Spirit, with self-responsibility. To help you discern your ego patterns of resisting and manage them, read the full article at www. AwakeningtheTruthWithin.com 18-years intuitive energy psychotherapy and multi-dimensional healing, for lasting change. Specializing in clearing stubborn patterns.

s I contemplate my life going forward and reflect upon the life I’ve lived for these many years, I have recently become acutely aware of how my work with Quantum-Touch Therapy has contributed to not only my physical and emotional well-being, it has also provided me with the confidence to have a business that was mine alone, and that all the massive learning curve I negotiated has been priceless in its value. I became a Certified Quantum-Touch Instructor in 2004, and have been offering these workshops as well as private sessions on a regular basis since that date. In September, 2017, I decided to become involved with the QSCA Coaching work with Christy Whitman. This is a certification program based upon the work of Esther and Jerry Hicks and Abraham, as well as Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer. When I received my reading list for this program, I realized that I had 8 of the 12 books on that list, and I’d had them on my bookshelves for 20 years. Clearly, that was the coaching program in which I was meant to be certified, and I have now become a certified coach. What I have come to realize is that through this coaching program, my level of confidence has increased, I can connect to my intuition, and I find it really powerful yet simple to help others find the answers they are seeking, to find clarity in their lives, to make decisions with which they had been struggling. In my own life I have come to understand many of my old issues and to find solutions and ways to get past their impact on my

Pathwork: The forces of love, eros, and sex

D

o you ever find yourself pondering questions such as: Why does falling in love feel so intoxicating, and why doesn’t that feeling last? What is the deal with ‘Cupid’s arrow’? Why do so many long-term relationships lose their sexual ‘spark’, though they remain affectionate? And what exactly is eros, anyway? According to the Pathwork, love, eros, and sex are three distinct forces that are all required in order to create sustainable love relationships. When these forces mingle harmoniously, relationships thrive. Eros is the spark that first gives us a taste of what ideal love could be, and can create a bridge to love if the willingness to learn how to love is present. Maintaining eros, instead of letting that flame die out, is what keeps aliveness in a sexual relationship; and love is required to keep eros alive. At the next Pathwork Open Lecture, we will look in more depth at these forces and discuss their spiritual purpose, what happens when only one or two of them are at play, what is the true purpose of marriage or longterm committed relationship, what are its pitfalls, and what is required in order to move through these. We will also do an exercise to look at eros and love in our own lives (whether or not we are in a relationship, these forces are essential to our aliveness).

Pathwork Lecture 44: The Forces of Love, Eros and Sex, will be the topic of this Open Lecture. All are welcome on Wednesday, February 20 at Saint Paul University, 233 Main Street, room 141 from 7 to 9 pm. Follow the signs to the room. There is a suggested donation of $15 for non-members and $5 for members. The Pathwork lectures are available for free download from www.pathwork.org For further information, contact Jean at jeanmillar21@gmail.com or 613-829-1254.

Women, Food & Spirit:

Intuitive Eating, Forgiveness & Unleashing The Divine Feminine “Who is she? She is your power, your Feminine source. Big Mama. The Goddess. The Great Mystery. The web-weaver. The life force. The first time, the twentieth time you may not recognize her. Or pretend not to hear. As she fills your body with ripples of terror and delight. But when she calls you will know you’ve been called. Then it is up to you to decide if you will answer.” ~ Luch H. Pearce

W

omen have had a long-standing love affair with food. There have been times when food has been healing, relieving, comforting and soothing. And there are times that women have had an ashamed, out of control and frustrating relationship with food. It seems that, during these times, no amount of willpower is enough to shift our dynamic with the very life source that sustains us in physical form. So, have we ever asked why? And better yet, have we ever asked if there was a better way through this complex relationship? Through the mass marketing of the diet industry (that is a multi-billion dollar industry) and the ever changing recommendations on what we should eat, we’ve forgotten one crucial element. Our relationship with food, as with everything else, is meant to be intuitive, loving, nourishing and pleasurable. So how have we fallen off the rails? Why have we become closet eaters who live with a rift between where we want to be with our bodies and where we actually sit in our bodies? To start, we can point to the historic role of the feminine on this planet. Even though the feminine, in her most organic state, is fluid and nourishing and free, we’ve seen anything but that in our ancestral origins. The feminine has been tethered, giving (to the point of exhaustion), stifled and repressed. And to top it off, we’ve been encouraged not to receive. So we’ve been left feeling overwhelmed and deficient. Anytime there is deficiency, there is a need to FILL that void. Anytime there is powerlessness, there is a need to somehow take that back. Food, then, becomes the silent lover, the consoler, the void filler, the happiness maker. And because we’ve assigned food to fill in the deficiencies that we have felt so deeply, we’ve removed our intuitive relationship with food. We then start to rely on outside sources to tell us how to us, what to eat and when to eat. We’re shamed when we eat meat. We’re bad when we eat sugar and we’re degraded when, God forbid, our bodies don’t look perfect.

Women, Food & Spirit:

A Full Day Masterclass on Intuitive Eating, Forgiveness & Unleashing The Divine Feminine Presented by Ann Jarvis – Intuitive Energy Healer, Holistic Nutritionist & Metaphysical Teacher This full day workshop takes us deeply into women’s complex relationship with food, themselves and their Divine Feminine. For any woman who has ever struggled with food, shame or body issues, this is an opportunity to understand and uncover what might be at the heart of this complex relationship. The workshop will cover some of the following topics: • Why the diet industry is like a hamster wheel that never lets you off • How looking to exterior sources for ‘dieting advice’ deepens our sense of powerlessness • How to take back your power • Intuitive eating • What shame has to do with disordered or uncontrolled eating • The feminine deficiency syndrome • Forgiveness • The ultimate relationship The day will consist of some great, interactive discussions and teachings. And despite the heaviness of this topic, Ann likes to make things as fun as possible. You will be taken through a guided meditation that will help you to release old, outdated trauma. Together, we’ll weave a new feminine-based web that is supportive, nourishing, empowering and joyful. Jennae O’Connor will be creating a clean, gentle and healing menu for our day together. This will include a plant-based lunch, snacks and fresh pressed juices. Date: Saturday, March 23rd Time: 10 am – 5 pm Location: Living Science Wellness Centre – 59 Iber Road, #25, Stittsville ON (20 minutes west of downtown Ottawa) Cost: $249 (includes lunch) Registration: To register for this workshop, please go to: www.soulfulsurrender.com to the courses page to register This course has limited space and is expected to fill up quickly. Register early to reserve your space!

It’s a vicious cycle that has an incredible invitation awaiting our response. As with any unconscious pattern there is a beautiful gift that allows us to unlock a better way; a more loving and conscious way. The question is, are you ready to step into your birthright as The Divine Feminine? The feminine, fully seated in all of her glory doesn’t ask permission. She stops hiding. She OWNS herself; completely.

How To Deal With Negative Emotions Part 2 of 2

I

We’ve all heard the story of road rage. I remember growing up hearing the story of Jack Nicholson. He was driving. He got out of his car, and he picked up a golf club, I guess, that he had in the back of his car and he started to smash up the guy’s car in front of him because the guy, I think, had just cut him off. And do you think that that was the appropriate amount of rage for that situation, or do you think Mr. Jack Nicholson loved him to death? Or do you think that maybe he had a backlog of unresolved anger that had he hadn’t dealt with? Had he let go of it perhaps he wouldn’t have reacted with quite the intensity. I’m hoping you’ve never overreacted to things in your life in an angry way. There’s nothing wrong with the emotion. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s not that it’s good. It’s useful. It’s just not useful to keep in your system for too long because it’s going to hurt you physically, it will hurt you mentally, as well.

e

t’s all about releasing those feelings, defragging your system So when it comes down to anger, anger has been linked to coronary heart disease and heart attacks. It actually does have a physical correlation to your health if you’re carrying around a lot of anger in your system. You’re probably also releasing a lot of adrenalin, and adrenalin can be very useful at times. Yet when you’re just sitting at home ruminating about that person who gave you the evil eye, the stink eye, or the crook eye, or that person who didn’t call you back and you’re playing that movie inside your head, your body starts to release adrenalin that gives you that fight or flight or freeze and you’ve got no way of really disbursing it because you’re just sitting in your couch ruminating over it. It’s not like back into evolution when that adrenalin rush would come because there’d be a lion or tiger coming after you. Then it’s appropriate to have that adrenalin so you get the heck out of there. You could stay to fight that tiger, lion, or bear, with everything that you had to try and give you a semblance of chance or survival.

The amount of anger that most of us carry around is completely inappropriate. We are not responding to the issue. The map is not the territory. We’re bringing that backlog, that rucksack of stones, of accumulated anger, and we’re bringing that into a situation.

“I Can Make YouStop Stop Smoking in One Hour”Hour” “I Can Make You Smoking in One If you’re having trouble kicking the Evil Habit Dr. Luke Michael Howard can transform even the most ardent smoker into a healthy non-smoker IN JUST ONE HOUR.

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis Complete Mind Therapy organization, is a Smoking Cessation Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 16 years now and has trained all over the world. After over a decade, Dr. Luke is still the youngest person

16

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.

February 2019

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


Then there is sadness. It’s appropriate to have sadness sometimes, you know, and perhaps you’re grieving for somebody. Perhaps there’s been a big loss in your life on some level - a job, a partnership for example. It’s appropriate sometimes to feel sadness in all disguises. You’re a human being, you’re allowed to feel a kaleidoscope of emotions. But when it comes to sadness, an example is grief. Say you’ve lost somebody you loved dearly who has passed away, it’s appropriate. It’s appropriate to grieve him and it’s appropriate to be sad for a little bit but should you be sad for the rest of your life, every moment of every day because that person is gone? No, that’s not appropriate. That will destroy your life. I’m sure that person who passed away that was dear to you wouldn’t want that for you either. So it’s about appropriateness, to the appropriate the situation. Imagine you had the ability to clear out, defrag, to unpearl that necklace, if you will, of all of those times, of all that emotional intensity so you could react to a situation for what that situation was at that particular day, that particular time. And then you let it go. Because there’s a great quote that is real wisdom about having the memory but release from emotion. That’s real wisdom. You have the lesson, you have the learning. And once you get the lesson, once you get the learning from the emotion, you don’t have to keep re-experiencing that with the same intensity. That’s like the metaphor I like to use about the emotions. You’ve got that necklace and all of those little beads, those pearls are coming out and other times where you’ve been sad, in some form, grieving, depressed, or depressed in yourself. And it’s really about coming by and talking it out - not just taking out the pearls because that takes forever. It’s forms of therapy, psychotherapy where you’ll be talking about everything that ever made you sad from the moment you were in your mum’s womb until session number 227 and you still feel like uncomfortable. No, it takes a long time. There’s transformational technology. It’s like hypnosis out there to name just a few where you go in and literally pull out that thread that’s holding all those necklaces together. So all those beads, all those rotten pearls just disappear and you can start again with the appropriate amount of emotion for that time. Depression has been...there’s a strong correlation with depression and depressing your immune system, having a weakened immune system. There are different forms of cancer that people have done studies on. So it actually affects you physically when you keep depressing yourself.

Age-Less and Thrive Your pathway to age-less living Join me, Sylvia Laale, 74 years young, to discover how to live the experience of minimal aging and optimal thriving as the years pass. I will show you how to 'outwit' the aging process so that, in all ways, you will feel as if you remain forever young. I offer you all the wisdom and research of my decades-long journey to this wonderful time of life, with focus on Food, Fitness, Flow and Fun. More importantly, you will develop your own unique process for age-less lifestyle transformation geared to your singular body/mind/heart and spirit.

You will discover the profound benefits of your individual approach such as:  weight loss that endures;  elimination of persistent inflammation caused by Standard American Diet (SAD);  relief from cravings especially for sugars and grain carbs (outcome of SAD);  reduction of effects of chronic diseases caused by inflammation;  noticeable increase in energy (healthy functioning of mitochondria);  improved brain function thereby lessening the possibility of dementia;  optimizing the neuro-plasticity of your brain;  merging of a resilient body and a resourceful mind;  the synthesis of nutrition with body endurance and strength;  the value of Flow elements along with good sleep and the joy of Fun;  the integration of all these elements over time despite occasional setbacks.

On Friday, January 11th, 2019​ Linda Comeau, Systemic Knowledge Consultant was the guest for the Energy Balancing Exchange Event (EnergyBEE) at Planet Botanix, Ottawa.

A general history of Family Constellations prepared us for the evening sessions. We learned that healing the Family Soul transforms every member of the family and the participants. In each of the three sessions Linda invited members of the audience to participate in the constellations and in one case a matriarchal lineage in which patterns had been passed on to the client. There was minimum disclosure. Linda identified the dynamics at play in the system of clients and connected the symptoms to the real source of the issues. Participants were touched and moved by the experience and one visitor from Germany remarked that Linda lightened our souls [erleichtende Seele]. A crack or shift palpably occurred evident to everyone present…. towards possible resolution of the situation and challenge in their lives. From the sessions, there was opportunity to: make better decisions, test choices, find alternatives; reduce stress, procrastination or frustration; end inner struggles, patterns or habits; and renovate relationships. Participants realized the possibility of: resolving issues quickly using Systemic Knowledge; ending the cycle of an issue so that descendants will be free of the same issues; and transposing the negatives into resources that support prosperity.

Take It Personally by Rachelle Lamb

As our awareness grows, so does the image of the web, for we are the universe becoming conscious of itself. With sensibilities evolved through millennia of interaction, we can turn now and know that web as our home. It both cradles us and calls us to weave it further. —Joanna Macy

ou’ve heard it many times. “Don’t take it personally” .. a modern day aphorism commonly espoused in personal and professional development trainings and spiritual teachings intended to remind us that the things other people say and do are more ostensibly a reflection of who they are than they are a reflection of who we are, particularly when objectionable words and actions are aimed at us personally. If someone says something hurtful, we’re best served to treat it like water off a duck’s back. They key distinction here is not that we dismiss everything others say but rather that we give little credence to hurtful words .. or words considered to be offensive, disrespectful, unkind, negative, etc. While I’ve spent a good part of my adult life attempting to practice not taking things personally, I’d like to propose that perhaps this well intended advice too often falls short of shedding light on the vastness of the relational terrain to which we are tethered. The Bias Someone says to you, “I love you”, “I feel so grateful to have you in my life”, “You’re a wonderful person”. What a gift when these messages come our way. They reinforce our sense of connection and belonging as well as our self-esteem. It’s good to know that certain things about us bring joy to others. Notice what happens though when we hear things like, “You’re not easy to be around”, “It feels like you take me for granted”, “You’re irresponsible”. This is an opportune time to exercise not taking things personally. Or is it? Rarely is it suggested that we not take things personally when we like what we’re hearing. It’s another matter however when we don’t like what we’re hearing. It’s often then that we want most to be skilled at not taking things personally. Given the clear bias we have around what we will and won’t take personally, it might be more accurate to say, I prefer not to take matters personally when I find myself closed to considering feedback or information that

might be challenging or upsetting to me. Such is our aversion to hearing things that don’t align with how we view ourselves. It can be pretty rough to take things personally depending on the message. Being Relational With little shared understanding in the west of how to live together in this world, our primary source of reference is often our own individual self. The self turns out to be far from reliable in the context of being relational. It’s not a given that self-anything will lead to a wise and embodied understanding of living relationally.  The art of deep relating requires that we recognize ourselves to be imbedded within a larger ecology of organic symbiotic relatedness. Deep relating asks that we take the time to sincerely consider the things that other people say about us, even when they might be painful for us to hear and even when they are expressed in a manner that we perceive as cruel or judging. If we’re willing to courageously wade into the relational current, what is most needed when we come face to face with our failings is mourning. Deep mourning that we have transgressed against another, against ourselves, against the web. It’s not a time to beat up on ourselves. Self-loathing only ensures that nothing changes. It bypasses the hard work of mourning and learning. Not taking things personally should not also mean we tolerate or enable poor behaviour. If someone’s ways of ‘being themselves’ is fraught with behaviours that generate pain for others, do we speak up or do we silence ourselves? If we care about the relational web and about life, we have a responsibility to weigh in. And hopefully we will speak relationally rather than punitively. It’s important to develop some discernment and tractability around the unwelcome feedback we sometimes receive. We can deepen in terms of our humanness, maturity, integrity, and wholeness if we pay attention to the ways in which we become reactively defensive, closed or rigid around the things we prefer not to consider. This doesn’t mean we should automatically agree with what we hear, but rather that we soften our defensiveness and entertain the possibility that our take on things may not be as informed as it could be. Consider this .. We are each and every one of us standing on one of the finely woven delicate strands that either directly or indirectly binds us to the relational web. Whatever we say and do does not remain confined within the borders

The Power of Relationship Coaching Humans are fascinating. No matter our age or circumstance, we are all driven to connect in some way. Relational to our very core, we are born with the essential tools for connection – equipped, as it were, to engage with others and with the world around us in order to make meaning, build security and catalyze our own growth and happiness. Not convinced? Consider how greatly we suffer – individually and collectively – when our social, emotional, natural and spiritual bonds are weak, threatened or severed. Things like loneliness, violence, poverty, environmental degradation and depression are all by-products of disconnection. So, if making and maintaining connection is so important and we have both the need and the wiring to connect, why aren’t we better at it? Because the “how” of relationship is a matter of experience. Initially, we learn about the dos and the don’ts, the risks and the benefits of relationship and

connection from our families, friends and communities. These same teachings become the foundation for our own relationship experiences and patterns. You see where this is going… Don’t despair. Helping individuals and couples get good – or better – at making and maintaining fulfilling, compassionate connection in ways that are deeply meaningful to them is my passion and purpose as a Relationship Coach. Relationship Coaching offers clients the opportunity to identify and move beyond the stories and habits that inform their Current Ways of relating and to develop the perspectives and practical capacities that allow them to build deeply meaningful, secure, invigorating relationships over time, with greater skill and intention. Sounds almost easy. I know it isn’t. Doing the work of Relationship Coaching takes courage and commitment. It asks us to wake up and open up more fully to our felt experience of relating intimately. It challenges us to explore and practice new ways of perceiving, thinking and doing, in the face of inevitable resistance, until those very things become an integrated and mindful part of how we relate. And, I can’t imagine an instance where making this commitment isn’t worth it. Growing healthy, sustainable, loving relationships seems the necessary salve for the challenges of our time. Our well-being depends on it! If you are ready or want to learn more about Relationship Coaching, please sign up for a complimentary 30 minute Introductory Call with me.

Painting with Words, Poetry for a New Era

Ian Prattis BOOK REVIEW, FIVE STAR Reviewed By Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite Painting with Words, Poetry for a New Era by Ian Prattis is a collection of poems that are thematically arranged and that reflect the very soul of humanity, filled with imagery and rhythms that mimic the different seasons of the human soul. The poems in this collection bear witness to what readers feel, perhaps in the hushed hours of the day; emotions, thoughts, feelings, and realities for which they find no language. This poet succeeds in capturing moments of reality that allow readers to connect with the things he writes about. The voice is powerful, the poetic lines rhythmic, and the entire collection is filled with powerful imagery. I love the depth in Ian Prattis’ poetry and the beauty in the rhythm and the richness of its diction. For instance:

“A week in the life/ of a poem/ has words racing to knowing’s edge.” Here is another: “Phrases creep / over the dawn of logic, / suspended, then gone.” Painting with Words, Poetry for a New Era opens new portals into reality. It is highly imaginative and the author articulates brilliantly on a variety of themes, from denouncing the horrors of war, to celebrating the seemingly mundane moments of life, to capturing the relationship between humanity and nature. Each poem is unique, expressing a thought, a reality, a moment in existence in a succinct manner. Some of the poems are very personal while others are universal in nature. This collection is as delightful as it is meaningful. You will read these poems and find yourself going back to them. “Painting with Words, Poetry for a New Era” Order through: http://ianprattis.com/PaintingWithWords.html To avoid shipping costs, Ottawa area friends can get a signed copy directly from the author –your purchase enables you to take home a prior book or Meditation CD home for FREE, as a special thank you.

Partner Yoga

racticing Yoga by oneself can be easy. We choose the pace, slow or fast, hard or easy, we can just choose by ourselves. But practicing with a partner can be more challenging. Choose some familiar poses and notice the differences when doing the pose on our own and with a partner. Also notice the differences when practicing with other partners. What feelings arise? Partner Yoga can help us expand the perspective and also help understand our partner more deeply. We do not have to be quiet while practicing Partner Yoga as it is a time to share our feelings and love. Partner Yoga is a fun way to practice Yoga. Normally, we practice with someone that has a relationship with us; our child, a friend or intimate partner. The most important part of practicing with a partner is to find balance, not to look at the partner’s weakness. Instead, we look for harmony between two living beings, regardless of the body height, weight or shape. Simply share and enjoy the moment together with respect and love. Be playful and we will find peace and happiness unfold for us. By communication and trust we give support to each other. We can encourage with humour, but never criticize with pride.

The Trinity Table

T

he Trinity Table has a new home. I am pleased to announce that our Sacred Altar is now located at The Total Nutrition Diva’s Wellness Hub. Diva Darpan Ahluwalia and her staff welcome you at the Manotick Natural Market, 1136 Tighe Street, Manotick. Phone 613-692-1484. I will be seeing clients once again at Manotick Natural Market on Tuesdays at (10:30- 12:30) and (2:00-4:00) Appointments can be made at 613-692-1484 or email darpan@totalnutritiondiva.com Darpan is known as Total Nutrition Diva. Her goal is to get you back on your journey to health. She is a holistic nutritionist at her foundation. Now with the added addition of the sacred altar, Trinity Table you can combine your journey into self through the path of mind, body & spirit. Your visit consists of two hours at Manotick Natural Market. Your first half hour is determing what is your intent for your spiritual journey. An example may be that you are awakening to your highest potential but need a mentor to guide you. Perhaps you are concerned about health, money or love issues? After your half hour interview you will relax on the Trinity Table for 1 hour. Spiritual music is played as table rotates 4 spins per minutes to help bring you into Theta. Theta is one of three brain waves you experience when you are totally relaxed before sleep and upon awakening. In this relaxing state you are open to seeing, feeling, smelling, sensing the in- between worlds. During your Trinity Table experience either Lilly, Darpan or Sasha Dawn will be facilitating a spiritual reading from your higher self, your spirit guides & angels. If you have questions about an event in the future Lilly will look into your astrology chart to help with

your decisions. You have free-will but sometimes a wee bit of understanding of your fate vis destiny allows you to make better, self-empowering decisions. First in Canada, the Trinity Table* is a simple concept which utilizes passive motion, providing a gentle rocking and slow rotation. These movements have been proven scientifically to aid in deepening relaxation enabling a person to attain Alpha, Theta and even Delta states of relaxation. This experiential medium aids in producing an enhanced environment for spiritual facilitation and awareness giving the user a greater sense of connectedness by expanding consciousness of oneself and opening to the spiritual world. When energy is unobstructed, intuition grows, vision expands and healing potential is heightened enabling the user to release fears, anger, unhealed wounds, judgements, unresolved hurts from this life and past lives, consequently evoking a heightened sense of well-being.

ATTITUDE

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC ’ve written in previous articles about having an attitude of gratitude. This is a powerful concept as it helps you elevate your vibrations so that you can attract more abundance into your life. Be grateful for even the smallest, most insignificant things as this helps set the tone for attracting greater items that you have on your wish list. The concept of Attitude that I’m writing about today is different. This is all about the mindset that you have as you are going through the creation formula that I wrote about in the previous article called TFAR which is the acronym for Thought x Feelings x Actions = Results. As you set out on your journey, do you have a positive or a negative attitude? Do you truly believe in your ability to achieve your stated objective? Do you have a “Failure is not an Option” mindset? All these are critical for you to have if you want to attract or create bigger and better things. A positive attitude means that you have positive feelings flowing through your being. Positive vibrations attract positive things. Life events will continually show up to “challenge” you as you work to achieve your objectives. It is my belief that, despite these setbacks, you are still able to bounce back up on your feet and resume your charge

STOP!

I N T H E N A M E O F L OV E A D i a mond A pproa c h S em i n a r How To D is en g a g e From T he I n ner Cr it ic One of the most personally devastating mental activities is that of attacking one’s self. Personal growth can be greatly hindered by the negative judgments of the attacking inner voice. This Inner Critic or Super Ego is largely unconscious and is the inner coercive agency that stands against the expansion of awareness and inner development. This sophisticated and tenacious layer of the personality is what we first encounter and continue to encounter on our inner journey. Its main job is to keep the status quo, to prevent us from moving beyond our ordinary sense of ourselves toward who and what we truly are. The Super Ego or Inner Critic creates great pain and suffering as it limits our experience, squashes our dreams, and keeps us in check. In this seminar we will begin and continue the process of identifying, understanding, and disengaging from the Super Ego. Using the teachings and methodology of the Diamond Approach, we will disengage from this layer of our personality which keeps us trapped in our usual sense of self. DATES:
