The Urban Vegetarian:

hen I visited Findhorn Community in Scotland I learned a very powerful technique of visualization called manifestation technology. Simply stated it is that if a person focuses on a particular idea for long enough and intensely enough, it eventually comes into being in the physical world. For the last 3 or 4 years many of us have been hoping for and visualizing a vegetarian restaurant in the west end of Ottawa-Carleton. There are NO vegetarian restaurants in Orleans, Kanata or Nepean! There are just two in Gatineau (Café Gaia and La Belle Verte). We have counted at least fifteen in Ottawa!! They are almost all east of Preston St. The downtown Ottawa list includes: The Green Door, The Table, The Green Earth, The Green Rebel, The Zen Kitchen, The Rice Wrap, Café My House, Credible Edibles, The Garden Spot, Govinda’s, Peace Garden, PerfectionSatisfaction-Promise, The Pantry Tea Room, The Wild Oat, Bread and Sons Bakery, Umi Café, etc. A few of these are vegetarian-friendly and/or vegan-friendly and they serve only a few exceptions to the vegetarian-vegan life-style menu. Most cities grow to the west...and Ottawa is no exception. The urban population to the west of downtown Ottawa has grown considerably in the past ten years. The average age of the Nepean population has gone down markedly. The number of Nepean steak houses and fast food meat restaurants has also decreased significantly. The younger generation is eating much healthier foods and demanding more organic food products. The time is ripe for an “Urban Vegetarian Eatery” in the Nepean area of the city, probably in the Algonquin College area near Woodroffe Ave. and Baseline Rd., just off the Queensway. Note that many of the original and

A New Approach to Probiotics!

H

istory documents that ancient peoples have consumed fermented foods and milk products including yogurt and kefir, for many centuries. Research indicates that the friendly bacterial cultures (probiotics) in these fermented products, contributed to the longevity of these peoples. The increasing understanding of our need for probiotics can be seen in the number of probiotic enriched products on the shelf. These range from traditional sources like yogurt all the way to fruit juice and chewing gum! As broad as the selection of these products is, the list of probiotic benefits is far greater - including improvements in digestion, heart health, weight loss, nutrient absorption, and clear skin. Not to mention that as much as 70% of our immune function depends on a healthy gastrointestinal tract! The problem, however, is that our intestinal tracts are not ready for probiotic implantation and colonization. Without proper preparation, much of what we consume will fail to take hold and improve our health. So how do you know if you’re getting the most out of your probiotic? Read on… Rainbow Natural Foods is presenting a free public seminar, ‘Probiotics: Medicine For The 21st Century’, hosted by Nelson Narciso, D.N.M. The event is on Thursday, February 3rd, 7-9pm at the Travelodge Hotel (Greenery Room), 1376 Carling Ave. RSVP: 613 726-9200 or merchandising@rainbowfoods.net Rainbow Natural Foods is one of the ‘pioneer’ health food retailers, and opened its store in Ottawa 33 years ago. Rainbow’s longevity is due in part, to its emphasis on establishing lasting relationships with its clients and the Ottawa community, and its focus on leadership and natural health education. Nelson is an Holistic Nutritionist, Herbalist and one of Canada’s leading Sports Nutrition educators. He is also a frequent radio guest, and has a weekly Rogers TV show, ‘Precision Fitness Challenge’. At Rainbow’s seminar, Nelson will help you understand why many scientists, allopathic and holistic doctors alike, are calling probiotics the “medicine for the 21st century”. Come andlearn more!

SCHEMAS PART 1 What’s Going On? By Marlene and Bob Neufeld

W

e have been using a new-to-us tool with most of our clients called schema therapy. It has allowed us to give our clients a 232-item questionnaire, which measures their maladaptive schemas. This gives us a short cut to identifying unmet childhood needs, ego states and personas, which we then explore in body-centered and emotionally focused ways. For more about schema therapy please visit www.schematherapy.com. Jeffrey Young developed the schema-focused approach to address lifelong, self-defeating patterns called early maladaptive schemas.  Over a period of 15 years, Young and associates identified 18 early maladaptive schemas (EMS) through clinical observation. Most people have at least two or three of these schemas, and often more. An early maladaptive schema has been defined by Jeffrey Young as ‘a broad pervasive theme or pattern regarding oneself and one’s relationship with others, developed during childhood and elaborated throughout one’s lifetime, and dysfunctional to a significant degree’.  Schemas are extremely stable and enduring patterns, comprising of memories, bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts. Schemas develop during childhood and are

elaborated throughout an individual’s life. We view the world through our schemas. Schemas are important beliefs and feelings about oneself and the environment, which the individual accepts without question. Once schemas are activated, intense emotions are felt.  When a person has an EMS like abandonment, they have all the memories of early abandonment, the emotions of anxiety or depression, which are attached to abandonment, bodily sensations and thoughts that people are going to leave them.  An Early Maladaptive Schema, therefore, is the deepest level of cognition that contains memories and intense emotions when activated. Recently, we experienced this first hand. We had planned a quiet evening together watching a video. Bob wanted to watch the movie “Agora”. For the last few months, Marlene has had difficulty watching violence in movies, with her whole body responding with shuddering and jerking. She voiced her fear that the movie would be too violent for her to watch. Bob got into a “subjugation” EMS, and decided he wanted to watch it anyway. A subjugation EMS usually involves the “perception that one’s own desires, opinions, and feelings are not valid or important to others. Frequently presents as excessive compliance, combined with hypersensitivity to feeling trapped”. Bob started to believe that his desires, opinions and feelings weren’t important to Marlene. However, instead of voicing that, he over-compensated with his “entitlement” EMS.

One of the hallmarks of the entitlement EMS involves “insistence that one should be able to do or have whatever one wants, regardless of what is realistic, what others consider reasonable, or the cost to others”. When Marlene’s body started reacting to the violence in the video, she decided to leave the room. Bob decided to continue to watch the movie from that place of “I should be able to do whatever I want”. When the movie was over he realized that he hadn’t really enjoyed it, and regretted his choice. Because he had been in the schemas he hadn’t been able to make an adult, essence choice. Bob also noticed that he had a sense of distance from Marlene. In the past Marlene would have gotten into her own “self-sacrifice” schema (watching the video even though it was physically uncomfortable) and “emotional deprivation” schema (my own needs never get met). This time, Marlene was able to stay curious and remain available for connection when Bob realized what had happened. We were able to reconnect without drama. You can download a version of the schema questionnaire which can assess your early maladaptive schemas from the schema therapy website (www.schematherapy.com). The version on the website is no longer being used. You can also contact Marlene and Bob to take the current version of the schema questionnaire and receive an analysis of your scores.

ThetaHealingTM for Surrendering to Your Authentic Power by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Energy Psychotherapist, ThetaHealing Facilitator, Sacred Sound Channel

ThetaHealing quickly, gently and easily gets to the root cause of your concerns and simultaneously releases energy from current life experiences, past generations, past lives and soul, to create deep and lasting change in your DNA! For previous articles explaining Theta/DNA Healing, and an overview of all my other services visit www.MelindaUrban.com Your authentic power – it is your certainty of yourSelf as a multi-dimensional being of Source energy. You are this already so you don’t have to go looking for it, find it, increase it or even connect with it. But there are usually numerous blockages to deeply knowing yourself as a vast, luminous being. You may feel that despite your efforts, willpower, changing your thinking, establishing new disciplines or setting intentions, you are still holding yourself back from your fullest potential. It can be frustrating. Having worked with countless individuals who seek my support for this complaint, the message I offer you is this; considering everything your soul has experienced, through all timelines, have immense compassion for yourself. And do not lose hope; ThetaHealing can help you release your stubborn obstacles. There are barriers to your power that stem from group consciousness, and from the fragmentations that have been put upon our planetary energetic architecture. For example, in my last two articles the case studies illustrated the insidious nature of victimization that has been carried forward through history by the controllers’ agenda of patriarchal domination. Yet, it can be quite simple to bring victim energy to consciousness and empower you with choice. Your personal experiences, whether in this life or carried forward from parallel/past timelines, can also dictate the relationship you have with your authentic power. Those who are on a healer’s path commonly fear their truth because they have been persecuted for it in some past life. Sometimes the fear is so great that objective facilitation is helpful to get to the root of it. But, of course, everyone has authentic power. Unraveling your personal ego’s story TM

through ThetaHealing and intuitive guidance can reveal the subconscious energies that thwart your awakening to your power. Here are a few that surfaced for my clients and were easily released. • Denial of feminine energy manifesting as repeatedly taking action without listening to intuition. • Resisting power on the belief that being in human form is less effective than formlessness. • Fear of being alone if one’s power is evident. • A fear of becoming entrapped in black magic again. • Shame for failing to assert authentic power that resulted in the loss of lives. • A fear of having to be solely responsible for the transmutation of all darkness. • A fear of the responsibility inherent in owning one’s power. • Needing to be perfect and therefore being unwilling to explore and open to authenticity. • Being denied the right to be powerful in a past life, such as living as a nun. • A fear of being Light because that would attract dark forces. • Feeling abandoned by God. • Not trusting to use one’s own power effectively. • Not knowing how to set boundaries with one’s power. • A distortion in understanding ‘power’; confusing abuse of power with authentic power. Will you choose to live as the love you are or resist yourSelf? Your limiting beliefs and fears, whether formed long ago or more recently, or inherited through mass consciousness, are simply energies. Each layer of illusion that you release is surrender to your original Divine blueprint. Ask yourself what you want to let go. If the answers remain obscure seek support. But be patient and be exceptionally kind to yourself as you fall in your love with your authentic power all over again.

Yogic Living for 2011

M

y husband Jßrgen and I spent Christmas as we always do, driving seven hours to be with his family in Stratford, Ontario. We usually take the picturesque highway 7 route as it doesn’t add much time to our drive. This year, however, our ritual holiday drive became a nearly fatal trip. We escaped not one, not two, but three close accidents! And one of which would have most likely been deadly: a big white SUV was driving on our lane, trying to pass too many cars, facing us, and had no space to pull back onto its lane. Thankfully a van slowed down and, at the very last minute, he was able to pull back onto his lane. For a moment, I did think that this was going to be our last moment on earth. Well, we are still here! And I am left with more appreciation for the miracle of being alive. Each moment truly holds a heightened beauty. I am amazed by the splendour of a breeze, a cloud, falling snow. We have all been given the great gift of life. Drawing on its potential is not always easy or even evident to us in our hurried lives. Having a balanced approach to living helps, but it requires practice, practice and more practice. As the New Year begins, I would like to revisit with you what the Yogic system has to offer: a flexible, healthy, body, mind and spirit. We cannot avoid taking good care of our body without consequences. There is also interconnectedness between everything we do. The food we eat, the thoughts we carry and the company that we keep have individual and interactive impact on our well-being. With years of training and practice, I developed a concise perspective on Yogic living based on six principles: relaxation, exercise, proper breathing, diet, understanding mind states and meditation. Principle 1 Relaxation: There exist many simple relaxation techniques that can easily be incorporated into your daily life. Deepening your breathing pattern and slowing it down, taking a meditative walk outside by yourself, or doing some yoga stretches will all help you to release tensions, relaxing the entire body. In doing so you revitalize your nervous system and achieve a more peaceful state of mind, making you feel more serene, positive and refreshed. This relaxed feeling can be carried over into all your activities and will help you conserve your energy. When walking, allow your mind to enter into the Wide-Angle perspective, or Witness, gently taking in all forms perceived, with a quiet peaceful mind. Practise regularly and you soon will see the results. Principle 2 Exercise: This principle revolves around the idea that a healthy body needs to move and exercise. An exercise routine can be achieved through doing yoga postures which systematically work on all parts of the body. They stretch and tone the muscles and ligaments, enhance the flexibility of the spine and the joints, and improve blood circulation.

10

The advantage of these yoga poses is that they make your mind relaxed, give you more strength and energy, and rejuvenates the various systems of the body. Complementing your yoga regiment with other types of exercise will create a well rounded result. Principle 3 Proper Breathing: The yoga postures go together with proper breathing. Each movement and stretch should be guided by your breath, making your movement and your breath coordinated. But during the day or before meditation, deep breathing exercises are extremely efficient and useful. This means breathing fully and rhythmically, making use of all the parts of your lungs to increase your oxygen intake. Proper breathing should be deep, slow and rhythmical. To achieve this, you need to be able to regulate the length and duration of your inhalation, exhalation, and the retention of air in your lungs or the pauses between breaths. Yogic breathing exercises, technically called Praanaayaam, teaches you how you can recharge your body and control your mental state by regulating the flow of praan - the life force. This helps you achieve a calmer and more focused mind, and increases your energy level. Principle 4 Diet: What you eat certainly affects your mind. Improper diet results in mental inefficiency and blocks spiritual awareness. A proper diet is one that nourishes both mind and body. It should be well balanced and based on natural foods. Proper diet in yoga also means eating in moderation and eating only when you are hungry. According to Yogic living, a vegetarian diet is preferred. If you are in the habit of eating meat, try eating less, or dedicating one or two days as a vegetarian day every week. Principle 5 Understanding of mind states: We have the ability to change our state of mind. In the Yogic tradition there is insightful discussion on the qualities of forces that make up everything from our state of mind, to nature and creation. These forces are divided into three categories, and we have all of the three qualities within us at all time, but usually one of them predominates. Our objective is to cultivate the first state, the peaceful and insightful state, so that it predominates. The three states can be described as:


1. Peaceful, serene, insightful – called Sattwa guna 2. Active, dynamic, overactive – called Rajas guna 3. Dull, negative, lethargic – called Tamas guna RESTORING CELLULAR COMMUNICATION PATHWAYS IN YOUR The principles are simple: feeling BODY, THUS BEGINNING A JOURNEY OF TRUE HEALING! dull and lethargic?

Balancing these energies becomes easy with the daily practise of meditation as it makes us more sensitive to our states. This very awareness enables us to act quick enough to avoid deeper negative states. Our objective is to cultivate the first state (Sattwa) and live with greater peace and awareness.

Principle 6 Meditation: Meditation helps to generate a more positive mind frame. It helps create a clear and serene mind state which reveals a clear and insightful innermost self. Lost in thoughts our scattered mind takes us away from the peace and clarity that lies within us. Joining a group meditation class helps in developing regularity in meditation as well as to learn various techniques and approaches. It also helps you to keep inspired.

Heart in Traditional Chinese Medicine By Steve Ryu, L.Ac.

C

hinese medicine, like Western medicine, believes that the Heart is responsible for the circulation of Blood and the health of the blood vessels. If the Heart is strong, circulation will be good, all of the body’s tissues will be well nourished, and the pulse will be full and regular. Physiologically, both believe that a weak Heart can lead to palpitations and chest pain - even heart attack. Chinese medicine believes that the Heart controls sweating. So, it is no surprise that one of the main symptoms of a heart attack is breaking out in a cold sweat. Chinese medicine also believes that the Heart “houses the mind”. This may be a difficult concept to grasp, but according to Chinese medicine, the health of the Heart energy has a lot to do with our mental activity – even consciousness. Actually it is not a very difficult concept to understand. When we are emotionally hurt by someone, we say “you broke my heart”. As all we know, emotional and mental activities are governed by brain; however, sometimes we feel it physically on our hearts. The Heart governs our ability to sleep soundly, think clearly and have a good memory. A healthy Heart plays a big role in our emotional health and our ability to have meaningful relationships. When the Heart energy is weak and Blood is deficient, we may suffer from anxiety, insomnia, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, and in extreme cases manic behaviour or coma. The health of the Heart is reflected on the facial complexion. When the Heart is strong, the complexion is rosy. When the Heart Blood is deficient, the complexion is pale. When the Heart Blood becomes stagnated, the complexion has a purple cast. When the Heart has too much heat, the complexion will be too red. Heat in the Heart can be caused by chronic stress, emotional trauma or excessive grief and worry. In Chinese medicine, each of the organs is said to “open to an orifice”. The Heart is said to open to the tongue. Although, the state of all of the organs is reflected on the tongue, the Heart therefore has a particularly strong

connection. Heart health is specifically reflected on the tip of the tongue, but the Heart governs the color, shape and overall appearance of the tongue in general. Pathology of the Heart is clearly reflected on the tongue. I see this every day in my clinic. A red tip indicates heat in the Heart and almost always is associated with restless sleep. Sometimes heat in the Heart will lead to tongue ulcers. Tongue tips that are pointed, curled up or under, are indented or have protrusions all indicate a Heart imbalance. Because of the close affinity of the Heart to the tongue, the Heart controls the sense of taste. The condition of the Heart also effects speech. When the Heart is out of balance, a person may talk fast or laugh inappropriately. More serious Heart disharmonies may manifest in stuttering or aphasia. The Heart is related to the emotion of joy. Excessive joy or excitement (like winning the lottery) can injure Heart Qi. Chinese medicine believes that the Heart is connected to the uterus and plays a crucial role in triggering ovulation. The Heart, a yin organ, is paired with the Small Intestine, a yang organ. Heat in the Heart can be transmitted to the Small Intestine, and because if the Small Intestine’s connection with the Bladder, this may lead to painful, bloody urinary symptoms. In five element theory, the Heart corresponds to the element of fire. The Heart is associated with the color red and the summer season. Ironically, though, the Heart dislikes heat and is susceptible to being invaded by exterior heat – symptomatically equivalent to heatstroke. Acupuncture and herbal formulas have been used for thousands of years to tonify the Heart and Blood to prevent and treat a Heart imbalance.

Resolution or Resolve For 2011?

R

ather than come up with a list of New Years Resolutions, this year I decided to follow in the footsteps of many of my peers and choose a one-word theme for the upcoming year. To wrap up 2010 I set aside some time off (two weeks actually!! – My husband was shocked and proud ;). There were many reasons for this decision but one of them was to allow me time to focus my energies on what I wanted to create for myself in the upcoming year… I have developed a real lovely looking graphic to encapsulate my goals and dreams. I am VERY excited about the energy of the New Year – I believe that 2011 will bring some amazing progress, shifts and changes for all of us. So… my one-word theme for 2011 is EASE. Initially I thought it was going to be ALIGNMENT but, although I kept speaking it… it did not fully resonate for me. The theme of ease feels empowering, exciting and allowing of a smooth path. Some definitions of Ease:(noun) • the state of being comfortable. • relief from discomfort or obligation. • effortlessness. (verb) • to free from something that pains, disquiets or burdens. • to make less difficult. • to lessen pressure or tension. • to give freedom or relief. With a theme of ease – I will allow myself to have a lot more fun as I allow all of the good things to come to me. This does not mean that I will bury my head in the sand when there are problems or challenges to be experienced – BUT – it is possible to move through any hardship with grace and EASE. In closing, I’d like to share a quote from the Abraham-Hicks body of work… “Let your dominant intent be to feel good which means be playful, have fun, laugh often, look for reasons to appreciate and practice the art of appreciation. And as you practice it, the Universe, who has been watching you practice, will give you constant opportunities to express it. So that your life just gets better and better and better.” How does this sit with you? If you could pick a one-word theme for your New Year – what would it be?

Choose Peace and Choose Peace Again the StoneBeings Invite Us and Remind Us… by Mitsi Rose Cardinal

I

t may seem out-of-the-box, that stones talk, that stones share anything else than their stillness. But when we go to our heart and listen from that place, we feel and know that indeed stones are alive! They have so much wisdom to share… all it takes for us humans to access this wisdom is to listen. All of the Mineral Kingdom, just like all of the Plant and Animal Kingdoms, know and live Union. They are in fact a great model for us humans who have chosen to experience separation, and who often play with the sweet danger of focusing on separation so much that we forget our Union with all of life. A group of the tallest and biggest Sacred Shiva Lingam Stones, formed with minerals in the rapid rolling current of the Narmada River in India, have spoken out a sacred invitation to us all humans. Together, to stand, be, anchor, and choose Peace as an ongoing practice that profoundly and efficiently support us in remembering and living Union. From the Shiva Lingams’ invitation, the Peace Across the Planet project was initiated in 2008 by Marilyn and Tohmas Twintreess, www.peaceacrosstheplanet.org. There are now more than a dozen of these wondrous StoneBeings, standing in both USA and Canada, and most recently, in the UK too! Choosing peace is a practice. It is a practice that allows a deep process of healing, of the integration of our experience of separation into Union. The Shiva Lingams’ invitation to gather as community focusing on peace, offers us the support to continue, to build and grow stronger in our commitment of peace, love and healing. Choosing peace will bring each and everyone of us to look within, at those places inside that resist peace. That is the magic! With the awareness of those places, immediately comes our response-ability to bring our peace to them, and invite them to integrate in love. With this ongoing process, each human choosing peace evolves and radiates peace with all beings on this beautiful planet. More and more humans are speaking up and sharing wondrous stories and experiences of how choosing peace, healing our own heart, impacts the world in ways that we may not yet completely understand with our minds. But our heart knows. Our heart knows that choosing peace is stronger than choices of violence. In fact, within their Spirit Listening practice, Marilyn and Tohmas Twintreess share that ‘one person choosing love is more powerful than 200,000 humans choosing fear and violence’. I invite you to consider this, and consider your choices, and then, consider making the conscious choice for peace and love, again and again. Below, please find the Words of the Shiva Lingams, as support for your journey in Peace.

February 2011

Hold my heart to yours. Breathe. Let go of struggle. Listen. I know the heart of you. You are listening and breathing my heart. We are intertwined perfectly.

Career Development through Astrology

A

strology is not only a horoscope that you read in the paper every day. It is a lot more that you think of. Have you experienced it? I have been observing the energies of the planets in my life since 1988. Our astrology chart is the road map of your soul evolution at birth and soul growth for this life. Before birth, you chose the location of the planets for you maximum growth and evolution of your soul in your journey on this planet. Are you unhappy in your career growth? Have you look at your natal chart? Looking at your natal chart gives you a good description of the true person you are. It also suggests, through your career house (10th house) and work house (6th house) career possibilities for you. What about the money house? For example, in my natal chart, I have Neptune in Libra in my career house and the moon in Taurus in my work house. Neptune can mean that I will work at the spiritual level or on the negative side, it can mean being confused about my career choices. The Moon in the 6th house means lot of changes. And I did change often. In my solar return for this year, I have many planets such as Jupiter (the planet of expansion), Uranus (sudden changes), the Earth (luck). In my 6th house, I have the moon (changes) and Pluto (transformation). So, this is a very interesting for me. I am planning to start my business on the web through my website Women Working Soulfully, create products, tele-classes, and workshops. Are the energies of the planets pushing me in starting my own business that fulfills my soul growth? If I am attentive to the coming months’ events, I will see transformation in my work and career. Knowing it ahead of time is so much less stressful and so powerful. I am starting a first workshop, “Building a business that fulfills your soul purpose” at the James Wellness Centre on Saturday, Feb. 19th.

Love, Sex & Enjoying People: Breaking the Limits

by Patricia Wall hat do you believe about love and sex? Is it different than what you are living? Does your head get in the way of having wild, passionate sex? Do wariness, frustration or resentment poison your relationship to mediocrity – or block you finding your true mate? I’ve helped many people find the right person – a process that is completely self-involved. It requires discovering the patterns and blocks that are interfering with that right person being in your life and removing them. It’s fascinating how easy it becomes to connect with someone when you get your hidden, subconscious blocks out of your way. Without those nasty blocks, you become a magnet for a better relationship. Sometimes that right person is already in your life, but your relationship has been bogged down with routine, stresses, and old wounds.

Romance Yourself Are you ready to love and embrace all of you? Then romance yourself and life will romance you in return.

T

he Beatles song, “All you need is love” is indeed true. All we need is love, but that love has to start with loving ourselves totally. The Golden Rule of unconditional love and extreme self care is “Do unto yourself as you would have others do unto you.” This creates a whole new perspective, doesn’t it? Here are some suggestions on how to do this. Accept yourself – It’s only through total acceptance of self without judgement that you can accept another. If we accept ourselves completely, then we won’t beat ourselves up when we don’t meet our expectations. When we don’t see fault in ourselves we won’t see it in others either. Be your best cheerleader – Enjoy the journey. Celebrate every success, no matter how small. Give to yourself - Spend time with yourself and do what you love to do. We’re often told that we need to take other’s needs into account before we take time for ourselves. So we give and give and give until we’re empty and then there’s no time left for us. The result is we feel resentful. Be kind to yourself - Tell yourself frequently how much you love and adore you. Say, “I am the best” or “I’m pleased with myself”. This builds intimacy. If we don’t love ourselves we won’t take full responsibility for our lives. If we’re unhealthy, angry, stressed and depressed other people will not want to be around us. If we don’t care for ourselves how can we care for and serve others? Call yourself on your bullshit - Call a spade a spade without criticizing yourself. Don’t play victim and don’t hide. Accept full responsibility for your actions. Acknowledge your weaknesses, resolve to address them and then do it. Forgive yourself – Ask yourself for forgiveness each time you make a mistake. Then grant it. God does, so why can’t you? Don’t replay the movie over and over in your head. Let it go and forget about it.

20

Romance yourself - Fall in love with yourself, all of you. If you aren’t good at loving yourself, it will be almost impossible for you to love someone else. This love is selfless not selfish. So be in your heart and not your head. Love is the energy that flows through our hearts, connects us to ourselves, to each other, and to our universal Source. Your essence is love. So let it in and you will let God in. I can hear you saying, this sounds wonderful but I feel stressed just thinking about doing all this. It’s such a tall order. Well I’m here to tell you about a novel way that you can support yourself so these changes can be made with ease and with joy. Neuroscience has made significant advances in identifying numerous abnormalities in key cellular biochemical systems. Among these is the antioxidant defense system and redox signaling. Our cells are threatened and become damaged by stress, sunlight, radiation, toxins, negative thoughts and emotions, endotoxins, burns, chemicals, viruses, fungus, and bacteria. When this happens our antioxidant defense system and our redox signals may become overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the problem. Oxidative stress that cannot be effectively countered results. This will affect your mood, you may become depressed, have sleep issues, develop chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, your anxiety levels rise, and your oxytocin levels decline. As


you know oxytocin is called the love hormone. Besides disruption of your redox signals, scientists have also determined that production of these vital molecules declines by as much as 90 percent by age 70. Empower your body at the cellular level to do what it knows how to do! Elevate your mood, get rid of your depression and pain, and love your cells with ASEA. This will happen because ASEA is balanced redox signaling molecules. What’s more these molecules will increase the production of Glutathione, the body’s master anti-oxidant and super oxide dismutase (SOD) by 500% to strengthen your antioxidant defense system.

And now she’s added even more good news—ASEA, the world’s first and only stabilized source of redox signaling molecules that makes EVERYTHING you do to get healthy and be more fulfilled easier and better.

Art as a Magical Journey into Tones and Shadows by Rosemary Tayler For years I had driven by the storefront Art Class/Studio at 500 Gladstone Street, thinking “One day I will drop in and ask about art classes.” Finally, in 2008, I took the plunge, walked in the door and never looked back. Bob Grant has been teaching art classes since 1990. He taught for two years in Los Angeles, where for several years he made his living as a painter. When his two daughters were born there, he decided to return to Ottawa, where his father and two sisters lived, and raise his children here. During that first year back, people who had seen his art kept calling up wanting to learn how to paint the way he did. With $80 in his pocket and two months’ free rent for a small studio, he made wooden benches, which are still used today, bought easels, lights and art supplies and started teaching. “When you teach others, you learn yourself,” says Bob humbly. The unique advantage about Bob’s classes is that everyone progresses at their own speed and in their own time. “It’s not like other classes, where, if you miss a week or two, there is so much to catch up on, you’re swamped,” commented one student. Each person starts off learning basic drawing skills, which are used constantly throughout all the other sessions. From there, one moves on to becoming familiar with tones and shadows, using charcoal made from willow tree branches. All supplies are of professional quality, which makes the learning easier. Learning to differentiate in life is essential. Somehow this learning to differentiate tones and shadows using charcoal sharpen’s one’s perceptions at all levels. One then progresses to becoming comfortable with tones and shadows by mixing one dark and one light oil paint. Moving oils over canvas to creates shades, shapes and light and dark areas is a challenge in itself.

February 2011

Everything is in the moment. The oils are alive as it were and one uses all the previously learned techniques to work that oil to acheive a finished piece. The neat thing about oil painting is that oil is such a forgiving media; one can make changes all the way along and fine tune until the piece is complete. Finally, one learns the theory and application of using colour on canvas. Bob has written his own instructions booklets for each of these aspects: drawing, tones and working with colours. This step-by-step approach is purposeful and achievable. I’m amazed at the feeling of confidence and satisfaction it has given me; not only in my art, but also in other areas of my life.  In the summer, he offers En Plein Air classes outside and from time to time he arranges a live model to be a focus for his life drawing classes. “I think everyone should paint outside. That’s where the magic is, painting from real life,” he says.

What’s Weighing on You? Access Consciousness

I

magine every judgment you have of your body carries a certain amount of weight. You can literally weigh yourself down with the judgments you pile on every time you step on a scale, look in a mirror or catch your reflection in passing. If you’re not gleefully acknowledging your body and thanking it for all the things it does for you, chances are you are feeding it a never-ending buffet of complaints, disappointments and judgments. If you have ever been on a diet, you already know that most of them focus on what you have to give up or leave out in order to achieve your weight loss goals. What if you gave up judging you? What type of changes could occur if you are grateful for the body you currently have? It may be that you’re so used to judging your body that you don’t even know when you’re doing it. So make a twist on a popular diet—instead of keeping a food diary where you write down everything that you put in your mouth, take notice when you hear a criticism that comes out of your mouth. Even if you don’t say it out loud, negative thoughts and judgments can still weigh you down. Chances are, you’re unaware of just how often and how severe your projections have been. They are the white noise of your daily life and if you can acknowledge it, you can let it go. Any time you catch yourself; apologize to your body and promise to do better next time. Be kind to you and your body. A friend of mine suggested a way to get out of the habit of communicating negatively with our bodies is to begin each day with a question. Before you get out of bed ask, “How are you today, body?” Then simply hold your face in your hands for about two minutes and feel the connection you can generate between your body and you. Your body loves you to acknowledge it. If you are willing to gently be with it, a wonderful expansion can be created for the rest of the day. How can I know if this will work for me? Did this information make you feel heavy or light? If it makes you feel lighter it’s true for you and if it makes you feel heavy, it’s a lie. Judgments and lies can make us heavy. What would it take to let go of all the judgments and lies we have locked in our body?

uring the last year I have had the opportunity to attend many drum circles and a few workshops in Ottawa. The benefits I noticed had a tremendous positive impact on my life and range from active listening, better appreciating musical skill and creativity, to feeling of belonging and unity with fellow group members while playing together. Another benefit I became aware of was my ability to focus and concentrate much better. My physical strength has improved and I now walk with more self-esteem and self confidence in my life. I enjoy drumming very much and feel energized yet at the same time relaxed and calm after the rhythmic experience. After a hectic and stressful day at work I can not think of anything I would much rather do than go to my drumming circle that evening, there I can reconnect with my body and let go of any stress being held on to. Following some research I found out that one of the most powerful aspects of drumming and reason that most cultures have integrated drumming rituals is that it heightens people’s consciousness. Through the rhythmic repetition of sound the body, mind and nervous system are energized and transformed. Research has shown that rhythmic music making is one of the most effective ways to induce brainwave synchronization. Musical comprehension is a joint function of left and right brain and this rhythmic sound can drive the brainwaves into alpha or theta states where it can alter the brain-wave pattern. Traditional drumming appears to be an efficient technique for entraining the right and left brain together which often leads to emotional and physical healing experiences. When I drum in a circle with others I am learning to listen better, I pay attention to what the group is creating and am aware of my place in it. It can be quite an inspirational encounter and often a group synergy is created that transcends me as an individual. Sometimes after the rhythm has ended a deep peaceful silence will be with us; it feels like the drumming has touched something deep and sacred within us, we just sit and absorb that for a while. It is difficult to describe - you just have to experience it personally.  I see the smiles and glows on people’s faces leaving at the end of the night after a community drumming event and these images are in my memory. I would like to invite you to come on out and experience for

Insecurity and the Black Swan

T

he psychological demands for a dancer have long been known as tough. Student dancers are reminded of rules, discipline, sacrifices and loyalty to their craft. Being psychologically strong is as important as being physically and spiritually strong in order to maintain and advance the level of performance required to compete in this three dimensional art form. Psychologically, the dancer needs equal measures of stamina, endurance, empathy, determination, sensitivity and steel. Everyone comes to the ballet to see the highly technical execution of difficult steps performed with rhythmic musicality and razor sharp clarity. No one comes to see the dancer behind the swan: that would be the bunioned toes, sore muscles, fatigue, and various insecurities that contribute to the interpretation of the roles and the business as a whole. Perhaps this is why it is called staging a ballet. People come to be entertained and the dancer is adorned with point shoes, tutu, false eyelashes and feathers. It appears that the role of both the white and black swan have always been danced by the same ballerina since the ballet’s debut in 1877. The polar opposite roles require diversity and strength. Veronica Tennant quoted in the December 2010 McLean’s article (One Nut-Cracked Ballerina) tells us that the role is so demanding that it is never danced by only one dancer alone over a season. I think it is ironic that a dancer needs to be vulnerable to be a good expressive performer and yet needs to hide it to be acclaimed. My son is studying painting and tells me that when the canvass hangs in the gallery no one knows of the amount of insecurity hanging on the wall or how he thinks “ouch, I so dislike that piece” or “that could have been done differently or better.” I tell him that is because the public doesn’t come to see the insecurity; they come to see the piece. They come to see its interpretation or illumination of something through his eyes and to be entertained through its revelation. His private angst is for the backstage wings where all good insecurities should remain because they are taboo. The new Black Swan movie makes this taboo front and center as a psychological thriller. I’m not sure if it is thrilling or within reasonable limits just normal. Counter punctually, the King’s Speech makes a whole show out of vulnerability and insecurity. Colin Firth will probably get an Oscar for it. In this movie the whole nation rallies behind his speech defect, as it is termed, to encourage him. He is portrayed as a sensitive, struggling character whose anger is his coping mechanism and his cursing a

24

productive outlet for it. In this case the entertaining royal family is more sympathetic because of the insecurity. Sir Winston Churchill normalizes it beautifully by saying that he also had a speech impediment and used it to his advantage. In short insecurity and creativity go hand in hand. Birth is a difficult thing with pains and second guesses and hoping it will all turn out all right. Ultimately you go with your best effort day in and out and hope the public sees the sensitivity behind the veil, appreciates it and is still entertained. Perhaps this is why the performer and the artist are such sought after characters because they remain somewhat of a mystery to us. Then again, perhaps it is because through their insecurities we see and accept our own. Anna Green is a Master teaching Reiki, Yoga and other Healing Arts in Ottawa and the surrounding areas.

Compassion in World Farming

I

am writing to share a commitment I made for 2011 with a readership inclined for the gentler ways of being... It’s my commitment to promote, not only privately support, the wellbeing of farm animals. This commitment did not pop up yesterday; it has been quietly brewing for almost all my life. Growing up, I believed that kindness towards all beings, including pebbles, trees, pets and flowers, was our duty. I truly believed that everything had feelings and remember how as a child I never kicked a stone lest it hurts. Also, contrary to other kids I never teased the cat. Psychologists use the term ‘’animism’’ to refer to children’s ascribing sentiments and thoughts to (inanimate) things. While most adults ‘’outgrow’’ this way of thinking, I never did. I still belief that all beings, in many different ways - are sentient beings. While an undergraduate student at the University of Ottawa, I saw a documentary that planted the first seed for my commitment today, two decades later! It was on farmed chicken; heart wrenching the degree of cruelty those creatures were subjected to! Forced to stay awake all night (the light was kept on 24 hours) to eat and grow faster or to lay more eggs, crammed in unsanitary overcrowded sickening cages. As a student, my focus was my studies. But I did what I could; started buying only organic eggs from local farmers. The images from that documentary never faded in my memory. I have been expressing my commitment to ‘’gentleness’’ towards all beings in small ways that probably don’t make much difference. For example, I stopped eating lobster years ago when I learnt how it was cooked: dumped alive into boiling water… Not to mention their miserable lives crammed and immobilized in tanks before they’re giving the hellish treatment. (Who has any appetite left after knowing that?) Towards the end of 2010, my personal commitment to respect for human dignity was ready to take on new dimensions…A novel I read between Christmas and the New Year spurred within me that last needed jolt for a shift to happen. The novel was based on a real story that took place in the mid eighteen hundreds in Northern India in a very wealthy kingdom. People cared so much about the quality of their food that the wellbeing of the animals they ate became of paramount importance. Birds were fed pineapple, other fruits and good quality grain to produce sweet tasting meat! How shockingly different this way of treating animals from the ways factory farmed animals are!

February 2011

On the evening of the 28th of January 2010, I conducted a search and found an organization whose mandate fits exactly with what I had in mind: Promoting the wellbeing of farm animals. It is called Compassion in World Farming. It was founded in 1967 by a British farmer who became horrified by the development of modern, intensive factory farming. Today Compassion in World Farming campaign peacefully and in a very focused way, to end all cruel factory farming practices. I declared my commitment to three individuals: My brother, and two friends. My brother said: ‘’millions in the world don’t have enough to eat and you worry about chicken?’’ The response of my two friends was fortunately more encouraging. To my brother’s unenthusiastic reaction one of the friends said: Maybe if we managed farming more humanely more local farmers would thrive and less people will go hungry. Good point! As far as I am concerned, if more humane farming means less meat, less eggs and less chicken, all the merrier. Although I am not a vegetarian, I would gladly reduce these foods from my diet and so could millions. I don’t mean to idealize an era or an epoch or a group but can’t help but being moved by practices that show our humanity when treating other beings. Thanking the animal we’re about to slaughter or hunt, hunting only for food (not sport!!!) and giving animals decent homes. Ghandy and other sages said that the way we treat animals and other vulnerable beings tells a lot about who are. I believe it’s never too late to show our humanity. Please email or phone me if you wish to share your thoughts on this question. Please note I’m not selling any services or products. This is simply to give back and contribute!

Please be advised the following article content deals with a very sensitive topic.

Poltergeists and Terms, as Marc Jade Sees It!

I

n my own definition, a poltergeist is a spiritual energy that has been trapped between the main dimensions far too long.  Surprisingly some poltergeists can actually cross over with some help while others lurk between the earthbound and crossed over dimensions for a very long time.  People immediately make the assumption that poltergeists are evil when quite frankly, amongst other things, without the negative we wouldn’t have the positive.    Terms are important to me as well. I wouldn’t call my grandfather a ghost, as the word “ghost” has been associated with “bad spirits”. It is safe to say some people’s fears are attributed to the word itself when an unknown identity or energy occurs around them.  As a working medium, I do not remember ever saying “There’s a ghost here”, I always refer to them as a “spirit” even though he or she is unknown to me, it is simply because I see unknown people all the time.  Remembering my grandfather as a kind man who loved his family deeply, therefore he is an angelic figure to me. Often saying his “spirit is with us”, to the contrary if his spirit were to appear somewhere where he was not known, he would automatically be referred to as a “ghost”. The soul and the spirit are one in the same for me.  The spirit is the “being” (carrying the memory of its physical self) while the soul is the energy (which isn’t physical) both combined creates the earthbound spirit. Returning to the poltergeist, the soul would be long gone leaving the spirit confused and trapped between the dimensions.  If the soul and the spirit aren’t side by side, it makes it difficult to understand when separated how can one explain to the other where it’s been and why they are still around. Whereas “still around” would debunk the word “timing” because there is no time frame in the spiritual dimensions it is unknown how long they were going on for in the first place. Therefore, if the spirit cannot understand how long he or she has been around, it would make crossing over almost impossible unless they were given guidance to do so.  On the rare occasion you may have a poltergeist attached to you or your property.  If you collect antiques, please understand there can be consequences. For example, an item you possess that was involved with a violent past could possibly have a poltergeist attached to it or to yourself if it is believed you are a generally weak individual . Poltergeists prey on weak vulnerable people, they consider them easy targets. This energy feeds off of your energy to regain theirs.  The hauntings vary as they can be triggered during the day or at night usually after two in the morning (this

26

timeframe having the strongest energy).  Nearly everyone who has had these experiences will wake up in the middle of the night feeling trapped in their bed as if someone was on top of them pushing them further into the bed. A few may experience smelling rotten eggs around the house, or burning. Incidentally these odors can come from something totally different, therefore please don’t associate all these odors with poltergeist.  Further signs of poltergeists can be belongings being misplaced around the house or to the extreme of objects being flown across the room or even being levitated.  Visions of black shadows (yet again, please don’t associate all shadows as a poltergeist, it could be a family member visiting), feeling ill all the time, hearing deep mumbling with the rarity of the mumblings becoming a chant making you the victim and slave throughout the haunting. Hair raising as this article is, it is the most chilling one I have ever written so far.  I choose to surround myself with the positive but there is always a negative side to things. As for the spirit world, poltergeists own their title quite well even though they are not all negative.  I have seen a few poltergeists in my lifetime. Fortunately enough, none of them have had the opportunity to haunt me because I was too strong. They found me boring and would leave. From weak to strong, if the poltergeist chants repetitively, you can get rid of them temporarily by attempting to repeat what he or she is saying. At first it will anger them, a few have even woke up the next morning with scratches to their body, but at some point the poltergeist will leave for the reason that the chant which was used for their victim has back fired.  This doesn’t mean the poltergeist has left for good. There is a process to be followed before your house is totally clear.   Burning white sage and bringing it to every section of the house starting with the basement and working your way up going clockwise on each floor and in each room.   Whatever antique you believe could have triggered this haunting must go. Changing the energy in the house will be the key. Move your furniture around, filling all the corners with potted plants, a television or a light stand, just a few suggestions. Place small crystals on the window ledges and opening the windows will allow the energy to circulate positively.  Poltergeists are mostly attracted when the rooms energy is dull and depressing. By you changing the energy, poltergeists won’t be a problem for you.  Children may also be sought out by poltergeists, but with no harm coming to them. This being a perfect example of how poltergeists are not always negative. Children would see them on a regular basis, befriending the child as well as protecting them and not allowing anyone or anything to hurt them. Thanks for reading.

Pine Gate Sangha Ian Prattis

P

ine Gate is a meditation community practicing Engaged Buddhism in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. It has created an engaged expression for peace, social justice and planetary care, as the community is the nucleus of Friends for Peace. This coalition, with Pine Gate at the core, has created annual events to celebrate peace, social justice and planetary care. Fierce Light in practice. www.ianprattis. com/pinegate.htm At Pine Gate the resident teacher is Dharmacharya Ian Prattis - True Body of Wisdom. Ian is a poet, scholar, peace and environmental activist. As a professor at Carleton University he taught courses on Ecology, Symbols, Globalization and Consciousness – reflected in his 2008 book: Failsafe: Saving The Earth From Ourselves. As an ordained meditation teacher he encourages people to find their true nature so that humanity and the world may be renewed. He has trained with masters in Buddhist, Vedic and Shamanic traditions. The sangha, located in the west end of Ottawa, had very modest beginnings. Inaugurated in 1997 following Ian’s return from teaching meditation in India, early gatherings featured Ian, his wife Carolyn, and their pets – Nikki the dog and Lady the cat. Since then the sangha has grown, and presently has over 250 members on the e-mail list. In the summer of 2001 major renovations took place to the lower level of Ian and Carolyn’s home. A new meditation hall emerged from the dust and knocked down walls - the Pine Gate Meditation Hall - named after Thich Nhat Hanh’s story in the book: The Stone Boy and Other Stories. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh provided a gift of calligraphy, naming The Pine Gate Meditation Hall. This now hangs on the wall for all to see. The new meditation hall has become a source of sanctuary and refuge for many friends, There are regular meetings for meditation and study every Thursday evening from 7.00pm – 9.00pm. Duong Sinh - Bamboo Stick Qi-gong classes, known as the Life

Sustaining Way of the Heart, are offered in addition to regular qi-gong classes throughout the year. Potluck vegetarian suppers, Hikes, Sweat Lodges, Pilgrimages, Days of Mindfulness, and Meditation Retreats are organized on a regular basis. The voice of the sangha is now on Facebook – search Pine Gate Sangha. It is also heard through the sangha journal Pine Gate - available online at: http:// www.ianprattis.com/pinegate.htm “Our engagement with society and the environment rests on our quality of being. When that quality is rooted in stillness there is a different ground for subsequent actions and so events take a different course. We simply go home to our true nature. We are very active in this way and bring harmony to those we interact with. The most significant interaction is with our true nature. To connect to its boundless quality in daily life, and then to connect to others and the world in the same way is surely the ticket to ride!” Directions To The Pine Gate Meditation Hall: In Ottawa, take Queensway to Woodroffe South exit; go to Baseline Rd; RT on Baseline; RT on Highgate (2nd lights) RT on Westbury; LT on Rideout and follow the Crescent round to 1252, which is always lit up with Christmas lights in the winter and full of flowers in the summer.

Happy New You to You Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW

I

wrote this title by mistake and then and then really liked the way it sounded. The time when we turn in and tune into a new year is a wonderful time of reflection when we consider making the changes that will result in a happier, healthier, more balanced us. Many of us make resolutions only to forget those selfpromises weeks later. It takes a good three weeks, some say longer, to install a new habit. Sadly, it takes only seconds to return to a well entrenched poor habit. A new self nurturing and self expanding habit needs focus and commitment to become firmly routed in our daily routines. These commitments need to be made a priority like bathing and brushing our teeth. For me, the easiest way has always been to do self care first thing in the morning. If I promised myself a run or long walk each day, the only way I could be sure it would happen would be to virtually role out of bed into my running shoes and head out the door or down to the treadmill downstairs. Once the day gets rolling I lose track of my own commitments as I become involved with others’ issues. The only way to ensure it happens is to make me the first priority. I like to write. I have to do it in the morning when my head is clear and I have not preoccupied with concerns for others. Making oneself a priority has been my topic of writing many times. It will always be a big issue for me and one that I constantly need to focus on. I was brought up to be ‘other focused’ and it is a constant struggle for me to put me first ever. I was also raised to be productive all the time and taught that whatever I did was never enough so that I constantly had to be striving to do more, to do better. This script made it very hard to relax and just be. The inner message was keep improving, you’re not good enough. This driving message has been exhausting over the years and I continually struggle to relax and just allow myself to BE. The easiest way for me to do that is to schedule in BEING time. That sounds nuts, but it’s the only way I can make it happen. And once more, BEING time, meditation, quiet time needs to happen for me before the busy day gets into gear. Late at night I am too tired, I just fall asleep. Sleeping has been a problem for the last twenty years. I can fall asleep, but not stay asleep. Of the many people I talk to, difficulty in sleeping is the most common challenge most people have. When did we become a generation of sleep deprived individuals? I have tried many sleep aids from melatonin to valerian to lemon balm to sleepy time teas. Nothing lasts. If I wake up and have actually slept five hours in a row, I am just about ecstatic. I believe the answer lies in daily practice to reduce the stress, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual, that I am carrying. Mediation and quiet time will do this. Long walks in nature will help. But I sense the answer lies more in finding that work/play/ relax balance that will allow the body to not be so stressed when I try to sleep. I recently fell and broke my arm. For a few days after the

28

Psychotherapist Insurance Receipts Available harris.sherry@gmail.com 613-236-8852

surgery I really couldn’t do much but sleep and relax. I began to remember what a true holiday felt like. I loved every nonproductive moment of my down time and truly celebrated not having to do anything but look after my self. After about four days of total veging out, I was bored, missed my work, which is my life purpose, and started seeing clients again. Before I knew it, I was up to full speed again and finding my self really tired. I cut back my work hours and noticed when I went to bed less tired, I slept much better. Again more evidence for me to not go to bed over energized. I am experiencing with a meditation before bed. It is proving to be very useful in having a good night’s sleep. For me, however, not overdoing to start with is the most helpful. Once again, the big trick is balance. Time to work, time to play and take care of the body, time to spiritually connect and deepen, and time to rest. When work time consumes too much energy, the other three suffer and are unable to provide the restoration and rejuvenation needed. Take care of yourself. You are the only one who can.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: Will man survive the impending ecological disasters? How can our modern technological society be taught to respect our home, the planet Earth? SRI CHINMOY: Mankind will survive everything precisely because God will not allow His perfection manifestation on earth to be a failure. But it is very difficult to impress upon others the necessity of respecting and preserving our Mother-Earth. If we try to play the role of enforcers, we will not be successful. Nobody wants to learn anything by outer force. Everybody has to be taught through inner persuasion and outer example. Inner persuasion has to be founded upon our prayers and meditations. Those who are conscious of the higher ideals have to pray to God and meditate on God to illumine the destruction-thirsty minds of the world and transform them into perfection-longing minds. Also, we have to pray to God and meditate on God to create and develop a genuine universal oneness-hunger in the life of humanity. The development of technology is not bad in itself. But we have to see whether technology is utilised for the divine satisfaction of mankind or for manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mutual self-destruction. Our planet Earth, which God has chosen for His complete manifestation, will be inundated with light and delight when we all live in our purityheart-garden and not in our impurity-mindjungle. In this sense, each seeker has a special role to play in the protection of our small planet. It is the illumination of the individual mind and spirit that will precede the awakening of a new collective awareness. The change in individual attitudes will be the precursor of a change in institutional policies, and the result will be a greater respect and love for our planet Earth. Precisely because He is all Love and all Goodness, God will never allow mankind to destroy this beautiful world of His. Sleeplessly He tells us to claim His world as our own, and to serve Him in this world by increasing the purity and divinity of our lives. We can all see that the world has made tremendous progress. God has successfully inspired the human mind and heart to aspire towards a more harmonious world. He is

infusing the earth-consciousness with greater oneness-light to go beyond national boundaries and other divisions. We must remember that the Creator is always more powerful than His creation. The Creator can easily influence or change the negative and destructive forces in the world. So we must have faith in our Creator and trust that He will, without fail, do the needful for His creation. Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.


Life is Too Short Not to Love

L

ife is too short not to love. I think most people will admit that our lives have become too busy. Sometimes it can feel like there is not enough time in the day to get all of the things done that are on our expanding list. Birthdays, holidays and special occasions seem to sneak up faster each year. Some scientists claim that time is speeding up, but perhaps we are just adding too many demands on our time. Research indicates that we are sleeping less, working more and juggling too many priorities. Family therapists advise us that our relationships are not receiving the attention that they deserve. The high divorce rate could be an indication that our priorities are out of balance. Perhaps it is time to focus more of our attention on love. The following love story helped to remind me about the importance of expressing unconditional love everyday. Marcy and Rick had been through a lot together in their relationship. They shared happy moments, loving memories and fond experiences. They also faced challenging obstacles to their love bond. At times, they disagreed about money, they had conflicting priorities and sometimes, they said things; that they wished they could take back. Their relationship was typical of a couple learning about love. Their most important love lesson occurred during Marcy’s fight with terminal cancer. It was a fast track lesson from diagnosis to bedside mourning in a matter of weeks. Rick clung to her side and whispered loving messages. Marcy struggled to respond, but her ability to share her words were choked off by the cancer’s stranglehold on her vocal chords. He would lean closer and closer trying to hear her muffled words. It was upsetting for him as he reflected on the times in their relationship, when he deliberately tuned her out. Now he would give anything to tune back in to her message. On their final day together the hospital room was filled with loving family and close friends. Did they come to say good bye, or did they intuitively know that they were about to witness a life changing lesson in love? As Rick and Marcy shared their final moment together, she opened her eyes wide and bright, she drew her last deep breath, and she said very clearly “I Love You”. The room fell silent as those loving souls witnessed a miraculous end to a love story and a powerful lesson in love. Life is too short not to love. This is the year to open our hearts and celebrate love. Our intimate relationships need to be nourished with lots of love, laughter, playtime, adventure and more romance. We are truly blessed to be able to experience intimate love and we can honour this gift by making more time for love. It is also a time to forgive and to heal those relationships that are holding us back. If it is time to move on, then it must be done with love. Relationships never end; they just evolve with our intentions, thoughts and actions. An “Ex” is an experience in love and the lessons learned, can help us become better lovers. Our time in between relationships is

February 2011

an opportunity to develop self-love. We cannot truly love someone, if we do not love ourselves unconditionally first. Our world needs lots of love right now. This year we could all benefit by adding more love, laughter, playtime and romance in our relationships because life is too short not to love!

Ottawa Drum Circles

by Julie Tierney Ottawa has a vibrant drumming community that includes various drum circles that meet at different times and places throughout the city. People come to the drum circle for various reasons.  Some come simply for the pleasure of playing or listening to the drum, others because they love to dance to the drum.  Still others recognize the drum circle as a way to connect with others and to communicate.  Some see it as a healing and/or spiritual experience. Benefits associated with drum circles include community building, stress release, development of new skills, creative expression, increased health and well being and, of course, simply to have fun. For me, the drum circle is a transformative and spiritual experience that is hard to put into words. It seems to put me in touch with a part deep within me that has been long forgotten and is greatly missed. Drumming can start off for me as a form of prayer and connection with Spirit and then metamorphisize into something quite powerful. There is a magic that is created when the group is really in sync and through the playing of the instruments, the sounds and the moving of my body I feel the transformation of accumulated stuck energy into a state of being where I am joyful, energized and free. People who attend drum circles range in skill level from never having picked up a drum before to seasoned players. Because the emphasis is on recreational drumming and the group experience, anyone can participate regardless of skill or experience level and there are usually enough other people there that if you are not confident of your abilities, you don’t have to worry about your playing standing out. Here in Ottawa there are various circles that meet at different times. Earth Tones Drum and Dance Circle meets at The Arts Court on Sunday nights and in the summer at Confederation Park on Sunday afternoons. http://etones.ca/ Full Moon Drum and Dance Circle takes place every month as close to the full moon as possible in Crystal Beach, just west of Bayshore. http://www3. sympatico.ca/julie.tierney/index.html Remic Rapids Drum Circle gets together in the summer by the water along the Ottawa River Parkway and in the winter at a private home. http://www. meetup.com/Ottawa-Drum-Circle/ Winter Drum Circles at Champlain Fieldhouse 149 Cowley Ave. near Island Park Drive the second Saturday each of month from October to April. See http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6462555865 All of these groups are open and welcoming to newcomers. Check out the facebook group Hand Drummers of Ottawa where many of the events in the drumming community are listed. http://www. facebook.com/group.php?gid=6462555865 New in Ottawa this past summer was the Ottawa International Drumming Festival http:// ottawadrummingfestival.com/ a free event that takes place on Parliament Hill in August.

HAVE A BALANCED DAY!

Bio-energetic Fields All living organisms have a special structure. The Bioenergy Field. The human body has a bio-energy field that consists of subtle organisms with energetic potential that give strength and power to the biological field.

Gold Card Benefits: • Assists the body to clear the distortions in its bio-energetic field • Relieves the body of pain and discomfort and may support healing

Balance and the unhindered flow of energy are important to health and wellness. As organs in our body function independently and interdependently, unlocking the secrets of bio-energetic fields, it will open new ways for diagnosis and treatment.

Of Different Body Fields: • Facilitates and/or strengthens the flow of energy in the body • Stimulates bodily functions and strengthens immunity • Enhances all your charkas and aura every day after your shower

Applying the principles of Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanics, as in a homeostasis condition, our body’s bioenergy field can automatically access the Zero-Point Life Force Energy from the environment and restore the energy deficiency, bringing all aspects (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual) into harmony. Our body’s own natural intelligence can channel the life force energy received to the points where it is needed most, when administered over a period of time. It aids cell rejuvenation and enhances our inner vitality. It aids immunity by cleansing, charging and rejuvenating our body cells; thus, it aids age reversal, promotes health cells and expels diseases. Gold Energy Card With Heart And The Body Fields. The plates are made of aluminum, which is first anodized (electrolytic oxidation) and then coloured. The spin of the atoms and electrons of the aluminum is charged in such a way that the plates are said to vibrate in resonance with the fundamental energy (Chi, Prana and Orgon) of the Universe. The surface of the plates has a crystal structure, and the chemical composition is the same as that of rubies and sapphires, which also consist of aluminum oxide. We know that rubies give energy and thus were called “life-stones” in the middle ages. Their field penetrates every material with positive energy. To energize your body’s fields and alleviate pains and discomforts, wave your plate over and as close as possible on the body and the problem areas. The plate will work clockwise and anti-clockwise in a figure-eight. Repeat as often when necessary.

General Wellness/other Benefits: • Helps others from aches, pains and other ailments • Energizes the environment in which we live • Energizes the liquid we drink and the food we eat by increasing potency • Energizes creams and oils for better absorption of nutrients Use the Gold Card on face to rejuvenate the skin. Press and wave the Gold Card at least 3 times on all fingers and toe tips to unlock energy blockages. Use the Gold Card on all your pets to supplement energy efficiency. These Cards will help to raise the vibration rate of the individual using them. In no way, can these Cards be harmful. Card energy will change the taste of wine…and for some reason, cheap wine improves. For a boost of energy, just wave the Card over your entire body from head to toe. WHEN YOUR BODY DOESN’T HURT, it restores the natural harmony of the body, thus aiding natural healing.

The Soul World – Part 3

By Kerry Palframan RN Kerry describes herself as an Indigo Dreamer – an intuitive (Indigo) guide to the spirit world (Dreamer) who helps individuals find and hold a vision of their potential to fulfil their soul’s journey. She assists her clients and readers in creating peace within themselves, their family, and their community, and on the planet. She gently and expertly leads others toward personal enlightenment, clarity, direction, insight, validation and vision. Question: What does the Soul World look like? There is no physical structure to look at as there as there is here on earth, but there is a type of seeing. It is seeing of structure of the particles in motion that make up this space. It is a kin to what you may see in your mind’s eye - a picture type of impression overlaid on your physical sight. What you see and experience in your mind’s eye is not that of physicality but exists non-the-less and is very real indeed. Souls see, but in a vibrational way and a sensing way. They see in Light and the dancing particles of Light and the lines-of-Light that make up Who You Are as humans. When they view the earth, they see our light, not our physical structure. Although our physical structure is visible or discernable to them, it is not seen though physical sight, but rather by ethereal sight. Liken it to what it is like for you to experience a memory and you will have a better understanding of what “seeing” is like in the Soul World.

Eczema and Nutrition

E

czema, an inflammatory disorder that does not just involve the epidermis, starts with an abnormality in the immune system. With this condition, the immune system is working against itself, armed with an imbalance in proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory markers. The skin is moderately to intensely itchy and can be accompanied by scales, thickness, redness or weeping. There is also a poor resistance to viruses and bacteria. There are basically five types of eczema. The most common areas for irritation are the face, including the eyelids, the back of the neck, knees, elbows, ankles and between the fingers. Childhood eczema usually appears when the child is teething, newly immunized or experiencing food allergies. Often this type of allergy follows the child into adulthood with the allergens being quite common and easily identified. Main contributors to eczema are candidiasis, leaky gut syndrome and low stomach acid and it is often accompanied by conditions such as asthma and irritable bowel syndrome. People who contract eczema often are big consumers of Omega 6 fats, especially from meat and dairy. Additionally, when some sufferers supplement with healing omega essential fatty acids, we find they aren’t able to convert them properly. They often have problems with mineral and protein absorption as well [thus, the connection to adequate stomach acid]. Stress plays a large role in the active outbreak of eczema. But what do we classify as stress? Stress can be something as common as the effects on the body of ingesting caffeine with perhaps a muffin or bagel, first thing in the morning. How is this stress? After consuming these, the cascade of biochemical reactions to the body is great. The pancreas, adrenal glands and liver are stressed as they have to alert themselves to attention and secrete the hormones necessary to get the body back to homeostasis. The lack of nutrient dense food causes stress to the body because the necessary building blocks for cell growth and metabolism are absent. The secret is to eat foods, oils and herbs that will combat this deficiency, gird up the immune system and give our cells what they need to make nice thick healthy membranes without the unwanted nasty inflammation.

nutrition and the skin

6 1 3 - 2 4 8 - 8 2 2 8 Why not just continue to treat eczema with topical steroid creams like hydrocortisone? Besides the fact that the topical approach does not address the nutritional deficiencies and the internal root causes of eczema, the side effects after more than 10 days of use include adrenal suppression, skin thinning and capillary damage, to name just a few. From a topical standpoint, there are some effective skin applications, but these are only successful when used in conjunction with nourishing the skin from the inside out via mineral rich super foods and herbs, thereby supporting the digestive tract in its entirety. For so many years I tried to treat this condition solely from the surface, but it wasn’t  until I started working with internal intervention that I saw successful results. If you are experiencing uncomfortable skin dryness or eczema, it is wise to listen to your body for it is telling you to pay attention, investigate and make the necessary changes that can set you in the direction towards wellness. With a BSc in Holistic Nutrition combined with 26 years experience and a passion for holistic healing, Susan Walters provides her clients with a unique balance of nutritional counselling along with treatment of the skin, custom aromatherapy and herbal remedies. She offers group workshops, private sessions, stand-alone treatments and combo treatment/nutrition/lifestyle consultations. For more information and/or to book an appointment, please contact Susan.

Sexual Alignment Initiation Manna Journey By Miorita Pincu his article is intended to give everyone the opportunity to connect with a piece of work that has been given to Humanity in 2008.This work is now called the THE SEXUAL ALIGNMENT INITIATION TM and is meant to assist you in aligning your sexuality with your heart and the Light of the Self. An enlightened sexuality is the key to a full expression of your Divinity in this body, a gateway to bliss and expanded states of consciousness. A focus on this enlightened sexual expression of the Self creates healing for the entire body, fires your awakening process and the merging with your Sacred Partner and the Source of All Life. THE SEXUAL ALIGNMENT INITIATION is not a ‘classical sex therapy’ approach or counselling work, where the partners in a couple are assisted in dealing with difficulties in the sexual area. This work is first and foremost a deep initiation into the mystery of the human light body. The Sexual Alignment Initiation is a work channelled from the Pleiades and the Sirius Light Beings, and it represents their collaborative effort in assisting humanity during these extremely transformational times. For those unfamiliar with the topic we will say the Pleiadians are presently 5th dimensional beings from the group star Pleiades. Various indigenous clans and the shamanic traditions around the world claim the Pleiadians as their ancestors and have always honoured their connection with the ‘Star People’ as this connection has deeply shaped their sacred ways of life. The Sirius beings are 6th dimensional beings who have created numerous lineages in human history. Again indigenous population like the Dogon tribe in Africa with their cave pictures which accurately describe the planetary cycles of Sirius A and B provide astonishing testimonials of the connection between Sirius and humanity. However, probably the most emphatic testimony of their presence and enrichment of human life and history are the mystery schools of the ancient Egypt, which have birthed and shaped our ‘modern’ world mainly via their Greek translation. Energetically a 5 dimensional consciousness is described as “a state of unconditional love, a state of oneness with all life consciousness ..and having a steady alignment to the pure love of your God essence.”(Christine Day, Pleiadians Initiations of Light, pg.13). Every dimension above the 5th holds this quality of unconditional love and communion with the divine, in addition, the sixth dimensional world holds the Geometry of Light which in-forms our 3D world. In my personal connection with the Pleiadians and the Sirians, they have always emphasized the need for Trust and a Heart Connection in the relationship with them. Alignment with love and opening of the heart are crucial for this reason. Without knowing through the heart there is no knowing of us, there is simply not knowing, there is speculation, but not knowing. The only place you can meet us is through the

T

64

heart and in the heart of all Creation where we are all ONE. You can come into this relationship with us from a place of knowing your deepest truth, of knowing your Divinity, Sacredness, your Oneness with Source. This is all that we want to share with you. The experience of being One in Source, with Source and through Source in the uniqueness and beauty of each one of us. As Humanity is opening now slowly to an understanding that life is everywhere and that there is a sacred alliance between beings of Light everywhere, the Sirians and the Pleiadians are inviting us to become conscious citizen of the galactic community. Creating this conscious partnership is one of the main intents of this work. The SEXUAL ALIGNMENT is done by activating with a very light touch various points and doorways found on or above the body. These doorways create patterns and sequences. The process has two stages. The first stage creates the main alignment which awakens the Kundalini and facilitates its fluid and gentle rising to the illumination gate; it also includes a specific procedure which can be done during intercourse in order to prolong the duration of the sexual act and assure the rejuvenation of the entire body. The second stage is geared mainly towards the completion of the activation and programming of the Merkaba.The work is very precise and can be done only from a place of heart centeredness and clarity and focus. The initiation involves sacred geometry meditations which support you in connecting with higher and higher aspects of the Self. Beyond the quality of commitment and clarity it requires, the SAI is an extremely easy and accelerated activation, grace also to the tremendous level of support received from spiritual forces. For those familiar with Drunvalo Melchizedek’s work The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, we would suggest that his writings provide the best introduction to the geometries involved in SAI and we highly recommend them as a way to understand the human light body and also the importance of the mastery of the sexual energy in the process of ‘enlightenment’. Moreover, Drunvalo Melchizedek’s book describes a specific technique of activating the Merkaba, a 17- step meditation, which involves specific breathing techniques, mudras and visualizations to which one needs to dedicate a very disciplined daily practice, a process he teaches in his Flower of Life workshop. The SAI represents an alternative modality of activation of the Merkaba which might be more adequate and easier for certain people as it is done exclusively through table work. In addition, in SAI the Merkaba is also calibrated to ‘circulate’ the sexual energy/ life force energy for rejuvenation and resurrection. The work is obviously suitable for couples, but not only as It is unlimited in its ability to accelerate your awakening and also allows you to open to and integrate the energetic changes happening now on Earth. For further info about the SAI please visit: www.pleiadianportal. com. The next SAI workshop: February 23rd –24th, 2011, Two-Day Intensive Residential Training. 8 am-6 pm, $250, Accomodation free.

Ask a Naturopathic Doctor!

Question: Like many menstruating women my iron is low but I get confused with the various forms of iron supplements available. What should I look for in a supplement? Larissa S. Dear Larissa, Thanks for your question; I’m sure many other women will be interested in the answer! Iron deficiency is considered the number one nutritional deficiency in the world by the World Health Organization, with estimates of up to 80% of people deficient in iron and 30% with outright anemia. Iron deficiency symptoms include: fatigue, poor work performance, decreased immunity, restless leg syndrome, chilliness and an inflamed tongue. Before we go into iron supplementation though, I’d like to describe dietary strategies for absorbing iron as that is the optimal way of acquiring our nutrients. First of all, iron from animal foods, called heme iron, is the most easy to absorb by far, with the best sources being liver, other organ meats, red meat and egg yolks—preferably from local grass-fed, free-range livestock. The B12 available in animal foods is necessary for good iron absorption. I realize and understand that this is counter to what many people prefer to eat and may even be offensive to some. I have had to personally change not only my eating habits, but my nutritional and healing philosophy in my practice based on ...what really works. If you happen to have a protein dominant metabolic system, then your health, energy and mental abilities will very probably improve by adding these foods to your diet, even though you may ideologically prefer to be a vegetarian. And your iron status is likely to be much better. There are many nutritional factors that affect iron levels. For instance, the iron in spinach, which is a popular food eaten for its iron content, is actually difficult to absorb. Adding butter and cod liver oil to the diet improves iron absorption in general due to their fat soluble vitamins A and D. Tannins from tea decrease iron absorption. Soy and whole grains contain a substance called phytic acid, which binds to minerals such as iron, making them less available in the digestive tract. Traditional cultures ate most of their soy in fermented form, where the phytates are broken down, as in miso, natto and tempeh. And if you sprout grains, or soak them for at least seven hours, the phytic acid is neutralized, making their iron content much more available. Heme iron is apparently not as affected by phytic acid. Lacto fermented foods, such as sauerkraut and home-made pickles, help normalize the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which is essential for absorbing iron. Adding vitamin C rich foods also helps absorb it. Vegetarian sources of iron include kelp, brewer’s yeast, blackstrap molasses, pumpkin and squash seeds, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, millet, parsley, almonds, dried prunes, cashews, raisins, Brazil nuts, beet greens, Swiss chard, English walnuts and dates— from most to least. Finally, if you can afford it, buy organic food, as nitraterich chemical fertilizers pull minerals from the soil over the

66

years, making the resulting crops deficient. With this understanding, let’s come back to iron supplementation, which I only recommend if your blood iron levels, measured by the storage form of iron called ferritin, can’t be increased through diet alone or if your symptoms are severe and you need help NOW! Iron supplements are usually found in salt form, that is, nonheme iron bound to another chemical, usually sulphate, gluconate or fumarate. Their absorption rate is very low, for instance 2.9% on an empty stomach and 0.9% with food compared to 35% for heme iron. This is why iron supplements are often prescribed in high doses, up to 300mg per day or even higher, often resulting in side-effects such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea and stomach distress. As a naturopath, I recommend the following strategy for simple iron deficiency in a menstruating woman: along with an iron-rich diet, take iron citrate or succinate (both better to absorb than the usual varieties) 30mg twice a day between meals with 100mg vitamin C at each dose, if tolerated on an empty stomach. If you experience side-effects as described above, take 30mg with three meals, adding digestive enzymes which contain hydrochloric acid and vitamin C rich foods. Strict vegetarians and intense athletes need higher doses of iron, up to double. Vegetarians without any source of animal foods need to supplement with vitamin B12. This should noticeably improve ferritin levels as well as fatigue within 1-3 months. If it doesn’t, there needs to be a more in depth workup to check whether there are other reasons than periods for blood loss or factors inhibiting absorption such as digestive sluggishness, intestinal inflammation, subclinical infections, kidney problems or cancer. There are many ways to help balance periods to moderate blood loss. Internal cleansing programs help increase efficiency of absorption of all nutrients, including iron. And there are emotional factors which incline us toward low blood iron, specifically feeling devalued. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that excess iron is toxic. In fact, as little as 200mg can kill a child, so it’s vital to keep iron supplements away from youngsters as one would a drug. Men and postmenopausal women should always get their blood tested before taking iron, as high iron levels have been correlated with an increased risk of heart disease, infections and cancer. I hope this helps you find an answer to your low iron levels and results in lovely, buoyant energy!

Essential Oils:

TLC for Body, Mind and Soul

T

he Egyptians used them medicinally and ceremonially. During the Black Plague, they were said to prevent infection. Their resins have been used in religious and spiritual ceremonies and in meditation for centuries. They are the oldest form of medicine and cosmetics known to man and at one time were considered more valuable than gold! Essential oils have always played a vital role in health and well being. These concentrated, volatile compounds are derived from the plant kingdom and so retain many of the healing properties of the plant they are derived from: be they antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and so on. One more historical note: the Romans diffused oils in their religious and political places of business, as well as employing them in bathing and massage. We can create our own special blends any time of the year, but since Valentine’s day is coming up very shortly, I would like to suggest a few ideas for gift giving. If you are a “foodie”, the scents of cinnamon and orange will be very compelling. All the citrus oils are antibacterial to some degree, helpful during cold and flu season. Cinnamon is warming and uplifting on cold winter days. As with all oils, a little goes a long way and since cinnamon can irritate the skin and mucous membranes, you might want to try the blend in a room diffuser instead of topically. Ylang ylang literally mean flower of flowers. In Indonesia, the flowers are spread on newlyweds’ beds. It is considered to be an aphrodisiac, lowering blood pressure and aiding relaxation.

68

You can create a lovely massage blend by combining ylang ylang with sandalwood and grapefruit in sweet almond oil (avoid nut oils if allergies are suspected). A general rule of thumb is to blend 5 drops of essential oils in 15mL of carrier oil. The same combination can be used in the bath. Light some candles and dim the lights for a truly blissful getaway! Looking to do something nice for the kids on February 14th? Children love the scent of lime (I suspect because it is reminiscent of lollipops!) and other citrus oils. You can add the oils to unscented bubble bath or liquid soaps. Although the days are getting longer, we can still suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (the winter blues) especially around holidays. Try adding some bergamot essential oil to your repertoire. This oil obtained from the peel of the citrus tree indigenous to Italy, is one of the most antidepressant of all the oils! With all essential oils , check for any precautions due to medications or medical conditions (including pregnancy). Essential oils are truly potent medicines and usually ‘less is more’ in terms of use. ©2011 Heather Garrod is a certified aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St. She facilitates monthly workshops on creating your own natural bodycare and carries all the supplies to create your own blends.

Survey: End-of-Life Hospice for the Alternative Community

P

lease feel free to respond to these questions in any way you would like. We would like to know your views on end-of-life care, and the possibility of establishing a hospice for our community. The notion of a hospice, where end-of-life, palliative care is characterized by compassion on the part of the carers and dignity on the part of the clients, is one which is gathering respect and attention in Western societies. It is understood as the active and compassionate care of the terminally ill when their disease is no longer responsive to measures aimed at a cure or the prolongation of life. Although the practice has been seen in Europe since the 11th century, modern hospice services were pioneered by registered nurse Dame Cecily in England during the 1950s. Since then, hospices are becoming a preferred option to dying in a hospital, where death is perceived as a failure of the medical system, or to dying at home, where the burden of care often falls on loved ones who may be grieving or inadequately prepared as care givers. [1] Have you ever considered a hospice for palliative care of a family member, close friend or for yourself?

Although this is only an outline of the dream, we would like to know the level of interest in our community in such services. [2] Would you be interested in using hospice care such as described above, either for yourself or for a family member or close friend? Yes___ No___ Would you care to elaborate on your answer?

Any new venture, whether alternatively minded or mainstream, needs a boost of energy to get out of the dream and onto the ground. We anticipate a mixture of investments and loans will be necessary to manifest our vision. Investors and lenders would both receive a comparable return on their money. Investors, moreover, would gain priority status regarding use of the hospice, for themselves and their immediate family. We would offer several methods of investing in the venture, including lump-sum investments, monthly (or other regularly spaced) investments, or bequeathments.

Yes___ No___ Would you care to expand on your answer?

A group of women in the National Capital Region are exploring the vision of establishing a hospice for the alternative community; we include a registered nurse, a palliative caregiver, and four others experienced with death and the dying. At this time, we see this hospice as a small and intimate place (4 rooms), fully able to meet the palliative care needs of clients, their families and friends while maintaining an atmosphere of peace and love. We anticipate locating this facility at Au Grand Coeur (formerly Au Grand Bois Vegetarian Summer Camp), a 565 acre property located 70 minutes north of Ottawa on the Canadian Shield. The site of the building would be on the hill, towards the western edge of the property, where the views from each room would be expansive and open. The building itself would be aesthetically and technologically in harmony with the surrounding environment. The emphasis in palliative care is to meet not only the physical needs but also the psychological, social, cultural, emotional and spiritual needs of the dying person and his or her family. All traditions would be welcome, with respect as a resounding theme throughout the experience. Simple accommodations for the family and friends of the client would be available in the immediate building.

February 2011

[3] Would you be interested in learning more about how to invest in the Hospice? Yes___ No___ If so, please provide your contact information.

[4] Do you have any suggestions for an appropriate name?

Please complete and submit the survey by February 28, 2011. You are welcome to submit the survey anonymously, in hard copy, to LinnĂŠa Rowlatt, 244 Northwestern Avenue, Ottawa, ON, K1Y 0M3, or to forward it electronically to linneasr@gmail.com. You are also welcome to contact LinnĂŠa with any questions. If you would like to be informed of future developments, please provide contact information, including your full name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number.

Jen’s Zen©: Soulful Solutions With Jennifer Clark Intuitive counsellor Jennifer Clark offers her en-light-ening and inspiring soulful solutions to life’s challenges. Q: My girlfriend smokes, but then lies about it. She says she isn’t a smoker, though she admits to the “occasional” cigarette when she’s being social. Only thing is, she’s social pretty much every day with either her colleagues, friends or family! I told her early on that I couldn’t be with a smoker in the long term and she promised me she would quit. We never put a time on it, but it’s been three years. How do I get her to butt out permanently or should I just quit her? — SMOKING MAD BEAU A: Dear Beau, sometimes love stinks doesn’t it? I completely understand your position. Smoking among other things would be a deal breaker for me too. Back when I was single, I dated a guy that knew of my anti-smoking stance. He told me he didn’t smoke but he did. He would hide his cigarettes, wear surgical gloves when he did smoke to protect his hands from smelling like tobacco and have breath spray on hand in his pocket to conceal his breath. We dated for about 2 months before I accidentally caught him with the surgical gloves on. It was a very interesting conversation to say the least that day! In the end, I didn’t want to change him and he didn’t want to stop smoking. We parted as friends. I was angry at first for investing my time and energy into the relationship but in the end recognized breaking up would be best overall. In three years, I imagine you have also put considerable time and energy into your relationship. By no action, you have agreed to it silently. If this is something you want to change, I would sit your girlfriend down and in a very honest but frank discussion tell her that one of your deal breakers is smoking and that her smoking is too much for you to handle. Remind her you love her and want to be with her (if that is indeed the case) but explain that you cannot live a healthy life being a second hand smoker for the rest of your life. Invite her to go with you to seek alternative therapies for quitting smoking. Tell her you’ll invest your time, money and energy to support her in kicking her bad habit – this is assuming she is willing to of course. I recommend to my clients my colleague

Karen Nagonosh who runs a company called Hypnosis For A Change. She is an expert at weight-loss and quitting smoking. Visit her at www.hypnosisforachange.net. If your girlfriend doesn’t want to butt out, then you have a decision to make. Stay and accept what is or leave for a cleaner lifestyle. It is your choice. However, if it’s any consolation, I see her taking to heart your feelings and doing what she needs to do to keep the relationship happy and healthy! Jennifer Clark is a popular Intuitive Counsellor in Ottawa working professionally in Ottawa since 2001 offering soulful solutions to life’s problems to over 7000 people just like you. She is the host of the popular weekly radio show “The Namaste Show: Good News For A Change” airing on CKCU FM radio 93.1 or www.ckcufm.com every Tuesday from 12:15pm to 1:00pm.

Do You Matter?

Patricia Wall ©Take the Lid Off Inc ack in the cave, the woman owned the fire. When a man came back from the hunt, presented dinner to the woman. The woman welcomed him at her fire, valuing his contribution, and thus gave him belonging. The woman knew that she mattered because the man made the contribution to her. Back in the cave there were very different social rules. If she didn’t matter, no one was going to feed her. It was that basic. Modern life is more complicated. Women have gained in their ability to be financially independent. That wonderful gain has created confusion in both men and women about their value, their roles and contributions. Women have lost the inner knowing that they have the power of belonging. With that loss occured a crisis of self-esteem. When a woman cannot feel her power to give belonging, she is disconnected from feeling that she matters. She may know that her family cares, or that her partner loves her and still feel a lack of certainty of her own worth. You can believe that you are loved without feeling valuable. How do you feel that you matter? When you feel your power to give belonging, you will feel that you matter. People around you will respond to your belonging energy, and want to make contributions practically and emotionally. There are several challenges in learning how this power works, and how to wield it, as the power emerges through energy work. One challenge is to understand how each person at your fire contributes, and how to work with the form of their contribution to get what you want. Take the practical example of the honey-do list. Often this list contains items that don’t get done, or don’t get finished. It can feel as if you don’t matter because the things you’ve asked for are not happening. The challenge is to accept how the male mind operates, so you’re triggering the response you want. A female will often do things to take care of the people she cares about. Therefore, when she wants something done she will ask in the context of being taken care of. If it doesn’t happen, she feels pain and neglect. A male operates differently at the subconscious level. To trigger action, it’s important to present a problem to be solved without presenting a solution. This is challenging because you probably already have a solution in mind, and an attachment to the problem being solved with your solution. It’s an important part of the process to use energy tools to clear your attachment to your own solution, so that people who care about you are able to give and you are able to feel them giving to you. Over time your aim will improve on getting things the way you want them. Try this test. Pick one older item on your honey-do list. Recognize that it is presented as a solution, rather than a problem. First, identify the actual problem that needs to be solved. You can use the Unlock tool (see osloda.com) to release old conflicts about the problem, and your attachments to the solution you presented, so that you can present the problem without a negative emotional taint. Now that you have identified the problem and cleared the negative associations, step two. Step two is to present the problem without mentioning any possible solutions

or requirements. In fact, the best presentation is having the problem with no solution and without any request for assistance. Simply let it fall out there casually, and let it go. Watch the magic happen. If you’ve removed the negative associations, a solution will be created. Step three is just as critical: praise the contribution. It may not be how you would have solved the problem. Accept and value the contribution that was given without criticism. You can work on aiming at specific solutions as you release your power. You’ll be amazed how the people in your life will step up to contribute without being asked, and seek your praise of their contribution. You will feel that you matter. It is a weird feeling when you aren’t used to it. It’s worth getting used to feeling that you matter. Patricia Wall, Osloda.com 613-831-8956 Osloda : The Art of Dealing with Everyday Life

If you still have trouble, email me at lbaird@istar.ca 1. You might put some thought into updating your resume, or why not call a head hunter. You should throw your hat into the ring, now. Life will start to go your way in the area of career, but it will pass you by if you do not take action in Feb. 2. There should be some new people moving into your world and old ones will just disappear. It might be for the best. Force yourself to put your credit card away as this is a slower influence and your cash flow is bound to dry up. Use this month to take care of unfinished details, such as filing your taxes or taking care of unfinished legal matters. 3. CONGRATULATIONS, YOU ARE PREGNANT. Don’t have a heart attack as it is seldom with child, but indeed possible. This is a seedplanting year and the seeds that you plant in Feb. could manifest into a beautiful harvest or baby by the end of the year. You can also focus on home renovations, artistic pursuits, or selling. Fun vacations or extravagant purchases could fit nicely into this chunk of time. Try to factor in some healing if you are still broken from last year. 4. Are you feeling rattled or just restricted and extremely uncomfortable? Issues around your home, career, health and relationships are all in your face, in Feb. There are so many obligations and individuals for you to care for, this year. You must first refuel and take care of yourself in Feb. Join a

74

gym or talk to a nutritionist. Make sure that all of your personal foundations are rock solid. 5. Your bones will be restless to travel and have an adventure in Feb. Go, and have fun, as this is one of the better influences to break out and party. A weekend away, will do, but the longer the better. If you are in an uncomfortable rut, of any kind, make a bigger push to get out of it, or it will be much deeper and tighter by the end of the year. This is a wonderful month for promoting yourself, your gizmo, or your specialty. 6. Are you in the process of building or renovating a house or a relationship? Are you married or in a committed relationship? If the answer is no, GET A HOOK IN THE WATER, NOW. What do you have to lose? This is the month get organized, committed, and focused. Finish the projects around the house and spend some family time with loved ones and you will rock this month. 7. Radical change is all around you and your life this year. Lubricate your hips and be ready to make sudden twists and turns. The month of Feb. is a tad slower than the rest of the year and you should consider using this time to get ready for what is coming. Go to the Doc and have a check up. If you are offered an opportunity to take a course or learn something new at work, do it, as it will benefit you later in the year. 8. Oh, oh, does your house need fixing. Is there a big purchase that you have been considering? This is the month to do it. You can buy a new home now, and move into it later in the year. You can safely make decisions regarding home or domestic issues, now. A family vacation would fit, but it could cost you more than you thought. 9. How is the activity in your head, so far, this year? You will find yourself doing much more soul searching and thinking, than you normally do, this year. Can you take a sabbatical or a good part of the year off? This would be the perfect time to go back to school or get into a job that has a learning curve attached to it. You will be seriously questioning your life, work, relationships and goals. This is a year to rethink, gather information, and reflect on where you have been and where you are going. Depression can creep in, so beware.

W

ould you like to have more ease, joy and possibility in your life?

This allows you to function from a greater capacity for choosing, generating and living the life you truly desire. The Bars are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head, storing the electromagnetic component of all the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and beliefs that you have ever had about anything. There are bars for Healing, Body, Control, Awareness, Creativity, Power, Aging, Sex and Money just to name a few. Each thought, idea, attitude, decision or belief that you have fixed in place solidifies the energy and limits your capacity to generate

something different. Have you ever had the experience that, despite your best intentions, you create the same results over and over? What if you could generate something totally different with ease? The purpose of a Bars session is to clear those fixed and limiting points of view, allowing people to open up to receiving the infinite possibilities available to them. Having your bars run creates more space and possibility for you and your life. This is an incredibly dynamic process that will not only leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed but it can also change your life!
 In a Bars session the facilitator lightly touches each bars point on the head. By running energy through these bars, the barriers dissipate and the electromagnetic charge is released. Releasing stuck energy is like deleting old files off your computer. You have more space to create something new and wonderful with more up-todate tools! When the Bars process is run on children before exams it can have a dramatic effect on their grades. Pregnant women report that labor is much shorter and the birthing process is much easier when they have their bars run regularly. Others report that having their bars run assists them in sleeping more soundly and that they also experience greater ease and joy in areas of their life which were previously problematic. Many people note that they are far less re-active, making choices from a place of total awareness instead of from the old, limiting patterns of their past. What else is possible?

Transform Your Fear of Public Speaking: And Share Your Message with Confidence! by Daniel Mauro

P

ublic speaking is the number one human fear. Death is number two. Jerry Seinfeld does a joke about it: “During a funeral, most people would rather be in the casket than the one delivering the eulogy.” When expressed that way it sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Why is public speaking so frightening to so many people? The particular reasons for stage fright may vary from one individual to another: excessive perfectionism, traumatic past experiences, lack of confidence, social anxiety. However, the core explanation ultimately involves a fear of rejection, or some variation on the theme. Perhaps useful in the ancient past, this survival instinct no longer serves us in contemporary society, where the ability to communicate and express ourselves effectively is of considerable importance in so many vocations. Daniel’s Story As a self-employed individual, I offer personal growth seminars on a variety of topics, host monthly movie evenings, teach yoga, lead devotional chant sessions, and present lectures in all sorts of holistic and academic contexts. I even dabbled with stand-up comedy for a while. Fortunately, I am entirely comfortable speaking in front of groups of any size but that was not always the case. Once upon a time, I experienced tremendous performance anxiety just at the thought of having to speak in front of more than a few individuals. The days and weeks leading up to academic presentations or speeches caused me unbearable worry and anxiety. Happily, a decisive turning point changed everything for me around public speaking. During graduate school, I realized that not only would I need to overcome this debilitating fear, but ultimately, that I could become confident presenting in front of groups. And so my speaking journey began. Along the way, I experimented with numerous tools and techniques to help master that initial presentation anxiety, a few of which I include here: Six Powerful Techniques to Reduce Presentation Anxiety 1) Master Your Material: Knowing your subject matter well and preparing the format of your talk goes a long way to reducing presentation anxiety before the big day. 2) Learn to Relax: Breathwork is one of the quickest and most effective ways to relax your physiology. When the body is relaxed the mind has access to greater neurological resources. 3) Visualize Your Performance: People often play “worry movies” of future events. In so doing, we can invite a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead, rehearse a positive scenario in your imagination in advance so that your brain becomes conditioned to manifest the desired outcome. 4) Concentrate on Your Message: What is it that you wish to communicate to your audience? Rather than focusing on yourself or your appearance, concentrate on the take-

76

away message. The more passion you demonstrate about your topic, the more captivated your audience will be. 5) Know that People Want You to Excel: When in front of an audience, we can believe that “people are out to get us” but this concern is entirely unfounded. The truth is, audience members want you to succeed and they will not judge you nearly as much as you judge yourself. 6) Practice, Practice, Practice: The more you speak in front of groups, the easier it becomes. The key is to take baby steps and orchestrate small successes along the way so that you can begin to actually enjoy (yes enjoy!) the process. Transform Your Fear of Presenting and Master The Seven Components of Effective Speaking: A Sacred Initiative Workshop Series Although I have personally used a variety of presentation techniques, it was knowing how to adapt my vocal qualities that ultimately led me to feel confident and relaxed as a speaker in any environment. Are you tired of dreading those inevitable speaking situations? Would it serve you in your work, business or education to finally transform your insecurities into powerful presentation skills? Whether you have an overwhelming fear of public speaking or you are an occasional presenter who would like to fine-tune your skills, it may be your time to shine in the spotlight!

The Day Before Disclosure:

A Government Truth Embargo is About to End

by Daniel Mauro e are standing at the threshold of one of the most important paradigm shifts ever: the truth about UFOs (unidentified objects) and ETs (extraterrestrials) is soon to be officially disclosed to the earth’s inhabitants! For over 60 years there has been a deliberate truth embargo by the major governments of the world regarding the existence of UFO sightings, ET encounters, and abduction phenomena. Vast quantities of video footage, photographs, interviews, military data, and eye witness testimony unquestionably substantiate the reality of ET visitations to our planet, yet the phenomenon has either been ignored or largely denied by the mainstream media, scientists, and government agencies. The Day Before Disclosure is a provocative documentary from NEW PARADIGM FILMS that consolidates a wealth of evidence of a Government Truth Embargo on UFO and ET presences extending back some six decades. In this comprehensive and well researched film, Norwegian producer Terje Toftenes provides compelling narratives that are beautifully weaved together with expert accounts from an impressive roster of individuals spanning diverse sectors of society: renowned UFO researchers, scientists, journalists, military personnel, pilots, high ranking government officials, astronauts, abduction specialists, and air traffic controllers. For the last few decades, UFOs have been appearing in all sorts of shapes, sizes and configurations around the planet: the phoenix lights in arizona, a UFO landing in Voronezh, Russia, ghost rockets in Sweden, a UFO hovering over Chicago O’Hare airport, UFO fleets over Peru and Mexico, the strange lights in Hessdalen, Norway, and a massive UFO forcing the temporary shutdown of Xiaoshan airport in China. Since the 1950s Britain has logged over 12,000 sightings, in Brazil UFOs and ETs are observed almost daily, and on Mexican Prime Time TV, journalist Jamie Maussan broadcasts a weekly show documenting recent UFO activity. Given the upsurge in reported sightings, one might wonder why the UFO issue has not received more public attention, why the media, military personnel, space agencies, and scientists don’t engage in the UFO subject more readily. In some cases, oaths of secrecy, fears of being ridiculed or risking one’s professional

career play a definite role. In addition, the US military is reluctant to admit that it is essentially defenseless against alien spacecraft that can travel at incredible speeds, disappear and reappear instantaneously, shut down nuclear missiles at will, and conduct seemingly impossible maneuvers like 90 degree turns, reverse Ls, and sudden stops. Alien abduction phenomena contributes to the fascination surrounding ETs. Noted abduction specialists like Budd Hopkins have recorded details of hundreds of human experiences on alien spacecraft, in which “abductees” are subjected to psychological examinations and reproductive procedures and subsequently returned to their life with no (conscious) memory of the experience. Abductees have provided thousands of drawings of aliens revealing the now well known features (associated with the “Grays”): large sweeping eyes, small mouths/cheeks, and gray skin. Tiny implants discovered in contactees provide further compelling biological and metallurgical evidence that humans have been interfered with by Extraterrestrial Intelligences. Regression therapist, Barbara Lamb suggests that at least 60 types of ET beings have visited the individuals she works with, some of these beings apparently mentoring their human contacts over a lifetime. continued on next page

One abductee featured in the film (let’s call her Alice) proposes an intriguing perspective regarding (the reason for) abductions. Given that the Grays lack emotion, they purportedly seek to understand this primary quality of human nature, they covet our emotional make-up. If emotions are indicative of high evolutionary potential, as Alice suggests, humans could be on the forefront of something unique. And that might explain why they’re so interested in humanity: our rich emotional repertoire. In the film, producer/narrator Terje Toftenes introduces the notion of disclosure with a medley of thoughtprovoking questions: “What if we were not alone? What if the thousands of people all over the world who tell about their encounters with alien beings . . .were actually telling the truth? What if our governments had known about an ET presence for more than half a century? What if they were in possession of alien technology that had the potential of changing our world and they chose to keep the public in the dark through a secret campaign of suppressed information? And what if that campaign ended tomorrow???” Thankfully, progress has been made on the UFO disclosure front in recent years. In 2001, Dr. Steven Greer launched an initiative where hundreds of high ranking witnesses, military personnel and CIA intelligence officers with knowledge of classified operations were asked to disclose their UFO information publicly. He believes it is crucial to end the secrecy so that humanity may (one day) make peaceful contact with ET civilizations as well as to lay the groundwork for the acquisition of amazing new technologies. According to US political activist, Joel Garbon, government disclosure may take place very soon. During this crucial time in human history, discernment by the citizens of the world and government leaders will be essential. If society were to be suddenly confronted with the truth about advanced cultures (even if they have benevolent intentions to assist and uplift humanity), certain individuals with positions of influence

could be “tempted to try to distort this opportunity to entrench their own control and material power.” On the upside, full disclosure could also spawn a global revolution in technology, energy, communications, and most importantly, impact the manner in which we treat our fellow human beings. Selected Quotes From the Film: Stan Friedman (Nuclear Physicist) “The evidence is overwhelming that earth is being visited by intelligently controlled ET space craft. . .this is the biggest story of the millennium: visits to planet earth by alien spacecraft, a successful cover-up of the best data, bodies and wreckage for 62 years.”

A healing journey to a calmer state of mind...

Robert Dean (Command Sergeant Major) “It’s not simply visitors from another planet, star, or galaxy, or even another dimension. . . evidence has been collected that the human race is a hybrid race and that some of these advanced intelligences have been involved in genetically manipulating us as a species from the beginning of our history.” Steven Greer (US Medical Doctor) “The truth is actually more interesting. . .the ET technologies are so advanced they interface directly with coherent thought. . . with conscious mind. . .the development of artificial intelligence in these spacecraft is so advanced that they can pick up on a directed thought. . . [this represents] a new paradigm of understanding the structure of the cosmos.”

ith the Holy holiday season recently behind us it’s the perfect time I believe to reflect and consider not only our own past deeds but those of others. This is where many ask the questions that they feel will define not only the sum of their deeds or misdeeds but also define their value to others. We ask: 1. Have I accomplished what I said I would? 2. Have others followed through on what they said they would? 3. What would I have done differently? Where exactly do these questions lead us? If it is to self retrospection and growth GREAT if it is to self recrimination and shame STOP! Here are what I believe to be the important questions: 1. Did you conduct yourself with integrity? 2. Were you honest and not misleading in your intentions and dealings with others? 3. Did you treat others as you would have them treat you? (My Mommy taught me that one) 4. Did you treat YOURSELF as you would a friend? Often we are our harshest critics and our cruellest taskmasters. The biggest meanest bully is the one reflected back in the mirror. Listen to your own self talk for a moment, is that voice inside telling you to do more for no other reason than that there is never enough? Self help gurus around the world have made a fortune telling us how to create wealth. You read all the books, watch the videos and listen to the audios that have been available at all the seminars.

things and events into our experience by believing that it is possible, after all if you come from a culture that doesn’t believe in Jesus would you recognise his image in a piece of French Toast and proclaim it a miracle? Those things that we desire or expect become that much more attainable because we believe in their possibility. If however we sit at home and wish to win the lottery but never buy a ticket the possibility of winning is pretty slim. Some would argue that if you are a good enough manifester someone will give you the winning ticket or you will find it on the street. I on the other hand see it this way. I wanted a dream home ticket but don’t have the extra cash to buy one, my Dad gave me $50.00 for my birthday and a friend gave me a lottery ticket and I thought I won $5.00, it turned out to be $50.00 so voila I have the gifted money to buy the $100.00 ticket. Now it’s still up to me to take the action and go buy the ticket with the money instead of using it for something else. Either way it is my free will and choice to do so. Many of us have been conditioned to think that we must always respond in the affirmative. (Q)How are you? (A) GREAT! So what happens is that we think we are the only one out there in struggle. If instead we answer honestly without shame but also without despair perhaps we will all feel able to open up and help each other find the way up making us all stronger? (Q) How are you? (A) Well my business has been struggling since the increase in tax. (Q) Me too, would you be interested in getting together to brainstorm for solutions? When you sit and wait for the life of your dreams or the secret of life to fall into your lap packaged with a bow you miss the point I believe of this whole lesson which is the journey of life. There will and are bumps along the way. We will get cut and bruised but if we can get up and continue with integrity and respect of self as well as others then we have done well. 1. Am I living in the moments of NOW? 2. Am I able to savour my cup as half FULL? 3. Am I able to look FORWARD without regret? 4. Am I able to see tomorrow as a GIFT full of possibilities?
