Essential Oils from Canada


ssential oils can come from many places on the globe, depending on where the plants they come from are grown. Here in Canada, we have the great good fortune of having many coniferous trees from which to obtain the essential oil. Black spruce is one of my favourite oils. It has a complex scent that blends well with citrus (as do all the coniferous oils) and/or lavender. Black spruce clears the lungs of any congestion, bringing a heady scent to any steam inhalation. It also helps with emotional congestion, helping one ground and find one’s centre. First Nations have used it to help ease muscular pain and to heal wounds. Juniper is another great healer to help heal injuries while guarding against infection. It is great as part of a detox treatment and as a diuretic.

Cedarwood’s claim to fame may be as a deterrent to insects such as moths, mosquitos and fleas, but it is also great in a detox, as a hair tonic, spasms and inflammation. Spiritually, cedarwood is a calming oil which allows one to access ones’ inner wisdom. Fir balsam may make you think of Christmas, but don’t restrict its use to wintertime, although like all these oils, it is great for congested lungs. Fir balsam’s clean, fresh scent is indicative of its power to disinfect. Spruce hemlock is a happy-inducing little oil that also has the ability to clear out congestion. You can use any of these oils separately, or in a blend, but always remember to dilute with a carrier oil (not water) if applying to the skin. ©2017 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St in Centretown.

Honour Your Body


ime and time again I am reminded by the wisdom of my body… both when I am working with clients and when I am working through my own ‘stuff’. No matter how hard you might try and change the body you were born with – the fact of the matter is that you were born with one body in this lifetime… it might be tall, short, fat, thin, large, toned or flabby. Whatever shape, colour or size – you only get one! It’s yours forever (for the duration of this lifetime!), so accept and embrace it and most importantly – honour it! You see, this precious vehicle we refer to as our body is the expression of your soul and allows your soul to get from place to place, experience to experience here on this physical plane. There has been much research done which shows that most people are less that satisfied with the body they were born with. Some people spend their entire lifetime trying to perfect if with exercise and a good healthy lifestyle; while others opt to surgically change it. If only we could see through the eyes of the Divine how perfect we are, we would know and recognize our own body for what it is – a wondrous temple, a sacred vessel for the soul. As a Mindfulness Coach, it is important to me to look after the physical body with good nutrition, regular exercise as well as meditation and connection to the Divine. Having said this – it is equally important to provide tools, education and support to allow the development of your connection with your own inner wisdom. I came across the following quote recently which I would like to share in closing “The same materials that makes up the universe is inside you. You need not look beyond your own body for Heaven for, in a sense, it’s a state of being and not necessary a location somewhere out in the cosmos”.

Honour and take care of your temple and welcome to Heaven!!

have had the good fortune to participate in two seminars run by the Jungian analyst, James Hollis, Ph.D.: the first one was s s “Finding Meaning in the Second Half llnes we of Life” and the second was “What smokin Matters Most”. The title of this latter frui one is the same as the title of one of his recent books, which also has the xie ty subtitle, “living a more considered self esteem life”. James Hollis talks a lot about t people being dominated by, adapting weigh to, and being governed by their fears. COUNSELLING, COACHING He suggests that, to really love and embrace life, we have to muster the & HYPNOTHERAPY CENTRE courage to make friends with our Richard M. Haney fears. He makes the observation that, Ph.D.(Counselling), Hypnotherapist in desiring life, we deny death, and, in (613) 234-5678 (613) 726-3636 denying death, we run from life. Bank St. (in Centretown) Pinecrest Rd. One of the techniques that I www.ottawahypnosis.com share with my Partners in Healing www.ottawacounselling.com (clients) is the facility to enhance “uncertainty tolerance”. Uncertainty is a fertile seed bed for emotional and intellectual growth. Comfort, which is the opposite of uncertainty, can become like an addiction and lead to boredom and emotional paralysis, whereas moving out of our comfort zone can cause us to become very creative. Hollis calls this latter way of being a “mystery-driven life”. “Creative legacy” is one of those concepts that really matter. In other words, the feeling that our actions and creations in this life make the world a better place for others long after we “fade away”. For example, in my own life, I was part of a group of seven people who planned and developed a member-owned natural food co-op in Toronto in 1972. www.karmacoop.net On June 24, 2017, Karma will hold its 45 th Anniversary Celebration. Karma’s slogan is: “Sustainable Food, Sustaining Community”. Jane Jacobs, the renowned urbanologist, was a member of Karma and she once said, ” We need a Karma Co-op in every neighborhood in every city.” This is creative legacy.

Good and Bad Swallow


s Swallow-Power or the Force of the Tongue Brain the force that grows the Face? I believe the Tongue Brain is the real Architect of the Face and the Mouth. A good swallow grows the palate and allows room for the airway, the jaws, the facial muscles and the teeth to develop. So a Bad Swallow is the ultimate soft tissue “repetitive strain injury”? It is actually a major trauma or stress to the Autonomic Nervous System. This is also true as well of a bad bite. A bite that is not bilaterally balanced is stressful. It throws off the jaws the, muscles and the airway. Your bite is supposed to be heavy on your back molars and not bumping up against the inside of your upper anterior teeth. We call this “Molars Mighty Anteriors Lightly”. Check it on yourself with saran wrap. The saran wrap should pull through your front teeth when you bite on your back molars. We call the tongue and the swallow-bite the “Tongue Brain” because the tongue is the only muscle organ in the body innervated by the 5 most important cranial nerves. This Tongue Brain w ill now allow medical research scientists to stimulate the tongue to create new brain cells and neural pathways. Wow is the TONGUEBRAIN ever powerful! Prior to birth and at birth the primitive and powerful and most important swallow reflex is ready to swallow and suckle or “latch on to the nipple”. This key reflex is ready at birth to enable breastfeeding. In fact until 6 months of age the baby like all mammals can breathe through its nose and swallow at the same time. We lose this ability to develop speech after 6 months of age. The downside of this is it means we might also choke on food or snore since the breathing tube or the trachea and swallowing tube or the digestive tube or the oesophagus are so close together. Take your time to eat and swallow. Never be in rush to eat talk and swallow. People die every year from choking needlessly.

The infant tongue swallow reflex is interesting anatomically and it is very powerful. The milk pad of the palate is the trigeminal nerve’s second division called the incisive nerve connects with the tongue. In the tip of the tongue is the third division of the trigeminal nerve called the lingual nerve? So breast feeding is the trigeminal nerve doing its thing. The third division in the tongue is touching the second division of the trigeminal nerve in the palate in a repetitive sequence. Pretty cool system eh? When it strokes against the palate or the nipple, this muscular repetitive stroking tissue force, empowers and grows the maxilla and palatine bones laterally and forward essentially growing and creating the width and height of the face. If this does not happen then the lower jaw cannot grow downward and forward either. This means we might have a narrow head form and we will have airway and muscularskeletal problems develop like headaches earaches jaw aches and neck aches. The facial skeleton is empowered by the soft tissue power of the tongue and the swallow. The Facial Skeleton which grows downward and forward form birth is very much under the combined influence of environmental influences and partly under genetic control. These environmental genetic forces are called Epigenetic!

The bottom line is the tongue makes the jaws and the airway grow. Here is what you have to watch and know: First, is there a tongue thrust? The tongue should go onto the roof of the mouth when the child swallows Second, by 4 years of age there should be spaces between the baby teeth so that the jaws can accommodate the larger adult teeth coming at 6 years of age. Third, the bite should not be too deep or too posterior. So watch the teeth do the lower teeth disappear when the child bites down? Fourth, is the midline on? How do the teeth line up? Is the jaw centered on the face and forehead? So help us monitor your child’s growth and development and keep the trace minerals high in the diet of the growing child and keep those damn sugars low.

Cultivating Trust When Your Reality Has Turned Upside Down

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. ike many, you may have the most difficulty trusting when you are faced with a sudden or shocking experience such as job loss, sudden illness or an end to a significant relationship. It can create a jolt to your sense of stability and security and you may struggle with fear. Unfortunately, the fear can stop you from receiving the most beautiful gift of all - to know that you are supported by God, always and all ways. In your foundation exists both that which serves you and that which does not. Often, in part, you are living by what doesn’t serve you, such as ego identification (for example: “I am my job”, or “my relationship is who I am”), or attachments to how things should be. These create false foundations because they are weak, external securities that can instantly vanish. This is what’s shocking; what you thought was secure is not. When these collapse, so can you. However, such experiences present opportunities to awaken your consciousness. They expose what you need to see such as core, limiting, subconscious ideas of yourself or your reality. If it’s too frightening, your ego will try to quickly recreate familiar, solid ground, but once again, your house would be built on the same or similar illusions. Instead, if you take the time to survey the newly-turned landscape, you’ll gain insight as to how that foundation can be excavated to rebuild truer security.


Now’s the Time to Deepen Self-trust I specialize in clearing stubborn limiting patterns. We can bring you freedom with Divine clearing of your 12-dimensional blueprint and healing from the root cause. pain & dis-ease  attachments  emotional triggers  traumas  ancestry  fears/phobias  karma  inorganic structures  addiction patterns  past life  limiting mental programs

Taking Refuge in Grandchildren

Ian Prattis aking refuge can provide delightful surprises. It is not always a Zen teacher, wise nun or high monk who is there to provide guidance and insight. My grandson Callun has provided quite a few for me. His home is in the town of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. One summer holiday Carolyn and I spent a sea kayaking adventure with Callun and his father Iain, exploring the fascinating coastline of Vancouver Island. On one occasion when Iain and Carolyn went shopping, I stayed at the house to meditate. Callun was playing outside. He came in crying after a while and tapped me on the shoulder. “Grand Pooh Bear,” that is what he called me when he was a little boy. “Grand Pooh Bear, sorry to disturb your practice but I’ve been stung by a bee on my neck and it hurts.” I opened my eyes and took Callun into my arms and said, “My dear Callun, you are my practice.” I gently took the stinger out of his neck, put some ice on it and cuddled him for a while before he happily went outside again to play. He had brought home to me that all of life is my practice. To my grandson Callun I bow in gratitude for being such a mindfulness bell for me. When I take refuge in this manner, I am aware of Buddha nature being graciously presented to me. Another grandchild, Millie, sent me some drawings for my birthday quite a few years ago. With her five year old determination she endeavored to draw a picture of me with no feet, only one arm, with a fuzzy beard, jug handle ears and much slimmer than in reality! Over my head she had drawn a yellow halo, which is totally undeserving, yet I learned that this is how Millie thinks of me. She was revealing her Buddha nature to her grandfather and I joyfully took refuge in her love and kindness. Several years ago, after leading a meditation retreat on the British Columbia mainland I arranged to take a ferry across to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island to visit with my son and grandson Callun. It was a beautiful calm sea voyage with the sunset dancing in the wake


of the ferry. Although I was tired from the retreat, this was a delightful respite. Both Iain and Callun were there as the boat docked in Nanaimo. As it was almost Callun’s bedtime, he asked if I would read him a story once we got to their home. I was happy to do this. Callun quickly changed into his pyjamas and chose a story for me to read. I lay down on his bed beside him and started to read. In only a few minutes I was fast asleep! My son, Iain, on hearing the silence, came into the bedroom and saw that Callun had pulled the bedcovers up over me and was sitting up in bed with one hand resting lightly on my shoulder, a beautiful smile on his face as he took care of his grandfather. My son was moved to tears by this. He drew a chair into the bedroom and sat there with us all night. He did not want to miss the magic. Three generations taking refuge in one another. Totally present, hearts wide open. Only one snoring, but gently! Dr. Ian Prattis - his moving and eye-opening books are a memorable experience for anyone who enjoys reading about primordial tendencies. Beneath the polished urban facade remains a part of human nature that few want to acknowledge, simply because it is easier to deny the basic instincts that have kept us alive on an unforgiving earth. Prattis bravely goes there in his outstanding literary work. www.ianprattis.com

Quantum-Touch Therapy, Grounding and Life: It’s All About Energy

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach, Certified Facilitator, Open Space Technology, and Small Group Processes ife Force Energy is the animating current of all life. This concept has been known for centuries in Eastern cultures and recently, accepted in the West. We learn how to use Life Force Energy in a healing modality during the Quantum-Touch therapy Level I training, and we become profoundly aware of how energy is a definitive reality. Following a Grounding workshop on Saturday, this concept and our lack of awareness of it came into my consciousness so deeply, that I’m needing to again address how we create change in our lives at the deepest levels with some very simple energy healing tools. In my energy healing practice, I am a constant witness to the impact of raising the vibration of the system to change the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual’s wellbeing. When we teach students how to use their breath, their imagination and meditation techniques to raise and hold a high vibration in their own system, and allow the system of the client to entrain to the higher vibration, they will observe that the symptoms go away. With an awareness of cellular memory, we realize that the symptoms may not disappear instantly, but the body does remember what it means to be in perfect health. Grounding tools, another way of working with energy can change the impact of others on our emotional and physical bodies creating a clear energy body. We have been affected by ‘others’ in our lives since prebirth, and many aspects of those ‘others’ stay with us, until we discover methods of clearing them. And of course, there are those people with us, whose thoughts and intentions can feel like our own, creating the need for us to act on them… They are not ours, but have been imposed upon us. The very cool aspect of working with energy, is that we can change these ideas within our own consciousness. We can learn the tools to effectively move this from our body and mind, and we will feel the changes immediately within ourselves. And those friends and family close by, will sense this as well. Every aspect of us is normal for us until we realize that many of these aspects are not valid. We don’t know how others feel in their bodies, so this new feeling in us can be quite unusual, perhaps empowering. To understand that we can create these changes, independently, is truly taking back our power. Just think about it, we can all do this. Please check out my website at www.aileensoasis. com to find the dates for the series of workshops on Grounding, and Quantum-Touch Therapy Level I and send me an e-mail for a very complete description.

How to manage stress Riverside Acupuncture with acupuncture & Wellness Center By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac


hether physical or mental, we all experience stress to varying degrees. Stress plays a huge role in our everyday health and can aggravate health conditions that we already have. Routine, chronic stress can in the long run lead to serious physical and mental health consequences if not managed properly. If you suffer from a health condition, whether it is chronic pain, migraines, insomnia, digestive issues, high blood pressure, poor memory, or even difficulty losing weight, it is likely that stress plays a role in your symptoms. Relieving stress is a very important factor in managing your condition and resolving your symptoms. For thousands of years Chinese Medicine has considered stress to be a major contributing factor to chronic health conditions, and has developed effective ways of treating the negative effects stress has on the body. No matter what condition we are treating, acupuncture works to promote healing by bringing your body back to its calm, relaxed state of healthy functioning.

1. Acupuncture influences the body’s fight-or-flight response, lowering blood pressure, and heart rate and regulating hormones and endorphins to bring you back to a state of relaxation. 2. Acupuncture reduces levels of our stress hormones like cortisol and boosts endorphins, our body’s natural pain relievers and mood enhancers. 3. Acupuncture is very effective in improving sleep and resolving insomnia, including problems falling asleep because of worry or overthinking, problems staying asleep and restless sleep. 4. Acupuncture has a balancing effect on our emotions so that we are better able to cope with everyday stressors without getting frustrated, angry, or “stressed out”. 5. Acupuncture can break the cycle of constant worrying and bring you to a more relaxed state. This makes it very effective for treating chronic anxiety and depression. 6. Acupuncture can help to calm digestive symptoms and strengthen and correct our digestive system, resolving conditions like IBS, constipation, diarrhea and acid reflux. 7. Acupuncture helps your nervous system to remain in a more relaxed state, and you can expect to feel in better moods, have improved sleep, and better digestion. 8 Acupuncture reduces inflammation in the body and relieve chronic pain conditions like arthritis, that can be aggravated by chronic stress

The Purpose of Meditation By Rupa


he purpose of meditation is to purify and sharpen the mind to acquire a suitable place for consciousness to awaken and cultivate; not to let the mind be “blank”, or try to stop thoughts, because the function of the brain is to think. Instead, we train our mind to be an observer and then are able to awaken consciousness to know what is happening in the mind and the world around us. Meditation is a rehearsal of life. During meditation everyone sees and experiences differently. This is because of being under the influence of the modes of nature. Some experience calm, peacefulness and tranquility. Some might feel stress, exhausted and not want to stay still. They prefer moving and acting. Some want to sleep. Meditation gives us a chance to see the pattern of our mind and change the pattern if need be; also train our mind to face stress so when things happen in life we have some idea of how to deal with it. Meditation helps us develop the ability to distinguish illusion from reality and gain strength of mind. Like physical body strength training, we cannot expect it to be easy. The flow of thoughts are like a river. Practicing meditation is like sitting on the bank of the river, observing the flow of the water that comes and goes, but not being affected by the water. Sometimes we see big waves, sometimes we see through the water, sometimes we see leaves floating on top of the water. No matter what we see, we just keep observing, not trying to change anything, not trying to stop anything. Gradually we will be able to not be pulled by the thoughts and not agitated by the change of the thoughts. The repetition of meditation helps to sharpen the mind so we can see more clearly. At the same time, meditation helps expand the capacity of the brain so we can receive more information without being overwhelmed. The process can be hard and long but the reward is extraordinary— we are able to stay calm in any situation in our life with the power of mind.

Question: What practical things can I do, either during meditation or apart from it, in order to see light?

SRI CHINMOY: A practical thing is something that comes spontaneously from within and not from without. Here I wish to say that meditation itself is practical. Only what is natural can be practical. So try to feel that meditation is something natural in your life. It is only when you do not meditate that you are doing something unnatural. You are wanting to see light but there are many people who are afraid of light. They feel that if they can hide themselves in a dark room, then they will be able to see the whole world and pass judgement on it from the safety and security of the darkness. When light comes and is ready to enter into them, they feel that all their weaknesses and limitations, all their negative ideas and negative thoughts, will be exposed. But the very function of light is not to expose but to illumine and transform our negative and destructive thoughts into positive and affirmative thoughts. In order to receive light or bring the light that you have within you to the fore, when you start your meditation try to feel that you have come from light and that your whole existence exists inside light. Feel that you not only embody light but are light itself. This is not imagination or mental hallucination. Far from it! It is a real, solid, concrete truth. If you can realise this, you will see a spontaneous flow of light from within. First you will feel it inside your heart and then you will feel it throughout your entire being. There are also other ways of seeing light. One way is through your breathing. Each time you draw in a breath, feel that you are breathing in light and that it is feeding, purifying and energising everything inside you. After a while you will feel that this light you are breathing has totally filled your being. At that time you will see and feel that you are nothing but light itself.

The Frequency of Love

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, RRC, CRC few months ago, I was talking with a client about a variety of issues that she was struggling with. She was not happy and kept focusing on “negative” things that were all around her. Although this was taking place during a phone conversation, I could feel my own energy level coming down slowly. You see, over the past 11 years I have come to understand that energy is all around us and that it has a direct impact on our life. I have also come to know that I must keep myself vibrating at a very high frequency if I want to enjoy the best possible “life” experience. I therefore check in with myself to ensure that I’m vibrating at a 10 on a scale of 0 to 10. This is not always possible but I can tell you that on a “bad” day, I only come down to a 7 and sometimes a 6. This is important to know because when you are vibrating at a 10, you are actually vibrating at the frequency of love. Abundance, health, healing, they all reside here. The word Praxis is defined as being the alignment of your beliefs with your actions. To know when things are in alignment just check into your emotions. If you are happy, joyful, grateful, feeling positive, you know that you are vibrating at 10 or near a 10. If you are feeling anger, resentment, fear, do know that you are vibrating at a low frequency which is not supportive of a positive outcome in your life. We can all decide at which frequency to live our lives. I have chosen to vibrate at a 10 which is the Frequency of Love.

Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psycho-spiritual counselor, coach, teacher, healer


very one of us has parts of us that became wounded in childhood. No matter how wonderful the parenting we received was, it was not unconditional as the love we received in spirit before taking on this incarnation. We call these wounded parts our inner children and we can, from our adult self, present them with amazing healing. When this healing occurs the wounded parts of us mature into healthy, whole parts which then integrate back into our adult self giving us safety, trust, joy, awe, self love and confidence in ourselves. The inner child work is simple. Basically you connect with your child inside around the age of 4-6 years. You create a relationship with that precious being inside and fill that child with love, acceptance, understanding and support. Our inner child is the emotional aspect of our self that has been hurt, repressed, and made to feel unlovable. When connection is made and this is not hard if you can trust your imagination), you can find out what kind of love and support your inner child needs and easily and consistently provide it.

Abundant Life Coach Psycho-Spiritual Counsellor Wedding Officiant 2belight1@gmail.com www.sherryharriscounselling.org 613-236-8852 Insurance Receipts Available I personally have been doing the inner child work on myself for 26 years. It has brought healing for me as no other therapy has. The clients I have taught it to who have embraced it seriously have discovered amazing healing in terms of self love and acceptance. They have learned through dialoguing with and supporting their inner child to release guilt, shame, anger, resentment, fear, anxiety and confusion. They have learned that their healed and healthy inner child (the one that came in initially) is full of love, enthusiasm and awe for life. This child is loving, confident, creative and full of joy at simply being.

Is Smoking Addictive?


hysically, is it physically addictive? Think about it. Now, I know most of you out there will think, “Well, of course, it’s physically addictive otherwise, I’d just stop.” You’d be wrong and I’m now going to take a few minutes to explain why you’re wrong and why it’s not physically addictive to you. See about 10 years the AMA, American and Medical Association, they got together the best doctors, the best neurosurgeons, the best addictions specialists, psychiatrists in the world. They threw tens of millions of dollars at this project and it was simply to find if nicotine was physically addictive onto your system. And after 10 years of research, a big, heavy paper that you can probably find online somewhere, it’s about 657 pages if you wanna read it. Best minds in the world researching it, you know what they concluded? That nicotine is not physically addictive. Now, interesting when you say, to yourself, “Well, why do I keep smoking?” Well, keep watching the video. See, a cigarette has about 2,500 ingredients in it, about 67 of those are proven to cause cancer. Now, with an addictive substance that somebody uses in their life, you need to keep upping the dosage to get the same effect. Hence, the alcoholic is drinking far more beverages, far more units of alcohol now than when he first started or when she started, the same with the heroin addict, the heroin addict isn’t on the same level of heroin now as they were when they first started because they had to keep up and upping, and upping the dosages.

Now, what tends to happen with smokers is, a smoker doesn’t tend to go from one packet a day to two packets a day to four packets a day to eight packets a day. They generally find their level and they level out that might be one that might be two-packet but then they pretty much have a holding pattern of smoking that same amount throughout their smoking career, but they don’t have to smoke more and more and more once they’ve leveled out to get that same high, it’s another reason why smoking isn’t physically addictive. Now, basically, if smoking was physically addictive then people who work in areas that are filled with smoke like in Las Vegas, like I recently came back to, people who work in bars, people who work in clubs, the casinos, these types of environment where smoke is present. For some of these people who don’t smoke, what would happen is and what does happen oftentimes with them, is they get lung cancer, they actually get cancer through working in these areas, and passively smoking through, years and years and years of this. They die but they still don’t smoke. The passive smokers still doesn’t smoke but they catch lung cancer before they smoke, doesn’t that seem ridiculous? Because it was addicted...if it was addictive they’ve actually got 10, 20 years working in this casino-like or bar environment, they’d be smelling those Marlboro Lights and if it was physically addictive, they’d just come over to you and be like, “What is that? Is that Marlboro Lights? Can I score some of those off you?” No, they don’t smoke. In fact, their system would rather give them cancer or make them die, it does that before they become physically addictive.

“I walked out 25lbs Lighter!” Kate had been over weight for the majority of her life- nearly 27 YEARS! She had tried every type of Weight Loss Gimmick, Diets, Supplements, Gym Memberships even Personal Trainers but nothing worked, until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promised I would do a testimonial for you. Here it is: The hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I lost 25lbs I have not eaten at timmies...I have had NO DESIRE TOO!!! It really has changed my life!” Check out more testimonials at: www.lukenosis.com you can contact Dr. Luke at 613-878-5874 to arrange an appointment.

And I ask you as a smoker, when was the last time that you woke up at 2:37 a.m. and your body is shaking uncontrollably and you are foaming at your mouth, and you’re willing to kill your most beloved person next to you in order to get a hit of your drug, to get a hit of that cigarette? Now, you might wake up and you might go to a washroom, and you might say to yourself, “You know what, think I like a little cigarette to go with this,” you might do that but you don’t have an uncontrollable urge in your body where you foam and there’s a chemical reaction in your body that you have to have it. It doesn’t happen. If it was physically addictive, you wouldn’t be able to go eight hours when you sleep without smoking. Yeah, when you wake up in the morning, the first thing you might choose to do is have a smoke and it might make you feel better emotionally but if you were really physically addicted, you’d have to get up every couple of hours to smoke a cigarette not because you’re already up. Now, when was the last time you went two, three, four, eight hours when you were awake and you didn’t have a cigarette? Now, yeah, you might say, “Well, yeah, I got really angry, I got really annoyed,” yeah, you got emotionally annoyed, you got emotionally angry, you got frustrated perhaps because you used to do that and you used it to help you to control your emotions on some level. I get that but is it physically addictive? Are you going to go into spasms? No. I get alcoholics who’d come and see me. Alcoholics are to a level where their actual medical doctor says to them, “If you stop drinking alcohol cold turkey, you could die,” so they have to be weaned off alcohol. You can stop smoking cigarettes like that. I’ve seen thousands of people do it. In fact, I’ve have helped thousands of people doing it for over 20 years now. I’m not saying it’s necessarily easy to quit smoking but what I’m saying is completely emotional, “Am I discounting what you go through with all those emotions when you stop?” No, it can still be, really, really hard, I get it, I really get it because I’ve seen so many smokers doing this but is it physically addictive in your system/ No, not at all. So we’re going to use hypnosis and turn it around. In fact, I’m going to help you de-hypnotize you so you would just won’t want to do it anymore. It’s almost like if you watch the other video, instead of attracting it into your life like that, what actually starts to happen is after I work to get it starts to repel, so as hard as you try, they just won’t come together, you can’t do that habit anymore. So that’s what we’re going to do when it comes to your smoking addiction, at least mental addiction, let’s clear that up. Mental addiction, sure, still tough. I’m going to help you deal with it. Physical addiction, no, it’s not!

BOWEN THERAPI Bowen Therapy for Cancer Patients


owen Therapy, also known as Bowenwork™, is the next generation of bodywork. The practitioner’s moves with fingers and thumbs are so gentle that people in wheelchairs, in severe pain, and bedridden can be treated. Precise sets of moves over soft tissue and nerves stimulate the autonomic nervous system to rebalance and support the body’s self-healing mechanisms. Results may include pain and symptom reduction, relaxed muscles, improved healing of injuries, decreased inflammation and swelling, improved circulation and lymph flow, reduction of high blood pressure, improved digestion, decreased cortisol production, hormone balancing, and more. Symptoms Treated Bowen Therapy may help reduce the severity of side effects and physical issues suffered by many oncology patients, without the need for additional medications. It addresses these and more: Nausea; Constipation; Diarrhea; Mood issues; Stress; Headaches and migraines; Range of motion; Stiffness; Joint and muscle pain; Fatigue; Scarring, Swelling; Lymphedema (Search www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed for the research paper entitled Bowenwork for symptom management of women breast cancer survivors with lymphedema: A pilot study.) The result of regular Bowen Therapy sessions is improved quality of life during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

I… felt energetic. I did not spend hours in the bathroom while my body rejected the drugs. That alone was so different from the last treatment.” Read the full article at www.bowentherapydubbo.com.au/ uploads/1/4/1/7/14174054/bowen_for_oncology_patients.pdf A client of advanced practitioner Ann Musselman in Port Dover, ON described his improved quality of life during cancer treatments: “I began weekly Bowen treatments and experienced energy and much relief from the pain that was in my lower abdomen and neck. I felt so much better and alive after the sessions.” Read the full testimonial at www.bowentherapywithann.org/cancer.html

Awakening Ottawa

Introducing Ottawa’s New Integrated Web Portal for Healers, Peace Builders & Spiritual Entrepreneurs: AwakeningOttawa.com by Daniel Mauro


wakeningOttawa.com is an exciting new integrated web portal for all things holistic, spiritual, healing, and peace related in Ottawa-Gatineau. The area of land spanning the National Capital Region is sitting on sacred ground. Just as there are planetary chakras located around the world, Ottawa is transforming into a planetary energy centre with its own unique energy signature, vibration, and spiritual mission. In awakening towards its future destiny, our Nation’s Capital has the potential to serve as a spiritual hub for Canada, and potentially, a consciousness leader for the world. On Thursday, June 1, we did our first official launch for AwakeningOttawa. com on CKCU’s I Am Alive Radio Show (see Home page or Blog for interview replay). Awakening Ottawa is a collective of individuals, events, and projects that aims to support Ottawa’s ongoing spiritual emergence, as part of a larger Enlightened Canada initiative I articulated during 2 live presentations in 2016. Whether you are an energy healer, holistic nutritionist, yoga instructor, naturopath, vegan-vegetarian restaurant owner, homeopath, Theta healer, Bowen therapy practitioner, chiropractor, EFT guide, brain optimizing specialist, or spiritual teacher – you have chosen to be on a heart centered path of healing and you need to let others know about your unique services. As of June 2017, AwakeningOttawa.com is the newest web portal to promote what you do and highlight what’s hot in Ottawa. Aside from a convenient Holistic Directory, the site features a Mandate, Initiatives, Events, and Blog page. The MANDATE page describes 6 primary pillars – gentle guiding principles with which the site is structured and continues to evolve. Community integration, spiritual initiatives, and an events calendar are examples of essential pillars that drive the spiritual movement and help organize dynamic activities within the site itself.


Next is the INITIATIVES page, which features largerin-scope spiritual happenings. Of the multitude of Ottawa events taking place on a monthly basis, the initiatives page would primarily highlight conferences, festivals, or movements that impact Ottawa-Gatineau’s spiritual communities as a whole; for example, a HayHouse style event with Gregg Braden, the annual Ottawa Peace Festival, and William Commanda’s vision for the Chaudiere Islands. Then we’ve got the HOLISTIC DIRECTORY: It gives healers, spiritual entrepreneurs, centres and holistic clinics the opportunity to promote their businesses in an easy-to-find, high visibility web location. This directory is categorized into subdirectories that feature everything from solo practitioners and nonprofits, to spiritual trainings & holistic nutrition schools, integrative clinics, yoga centres, wellness shops, and vegetarian restaurants. The directory is also great for web visitors looking for a particular healing modality, holistic service, or training centre. For example, you may be considering a Yoga Teacher Training and want to scope out the different offerings available in the Ottawa yoga space. Or perhaps you want to attend an impromptu yoga class at a centre closest you. In either case, the search process is made easy with a Yoga Centre subdirectory. Last but not least… the  BLOG page. Blog posts will consist of concise pieces written by local entrepreneurs on a variety of cutting-edge topics. There are 3 criteria to be eligible to contribute a blog piece to AwakeningOttawa.com. You are: 1) Subscribed to one of the holistic directory pages; 2) An expert on a relevant topic; 3) Published in your area of expertise.  For phase 2 of AwakeningOttawa.com (planned for fall 2017) we’ll be introducing a Dynamic Events Calendar. The events calendar is meant to be a onestop shop for all of the exciting activities taking place in Ottawa that align with the overall theme of the site. It’ll be searchable by topic (e.g., sound healing, speakerauthor events, vegetarian festivals, brain health shows, meditation retreats).  Also in phase 2, we’ll be adding the “Ottawa Spiritual Entrepreneur Podcast,” featuring regular audio interviews with local health & wellness practitioners, visionary creators, spiritual event planners and heart centered entrepreneurs.

BodyTalk: Quantum Fascial Balancing


atching fascia, muscle, bones, and joints release, change position, lengthen, and reshape, by moving them from particle to waveform, introducing energetic changes, and integrating these into the body, is a phenomenal way to facilitate healing. It creates endless possibilities to transform physical structures, e.g. realign posture, increase range of motion, release tension, enhance circulation of blood, nerve, lymph and energy, while strengthening our 3 brains and organs, and addressing related mental/emotional patterns. The BodyTalk System can be used to alter the body’s waveform patterns by observing and suggesting modifications to them, from the perspective of consciousness, so that the greatest health outcomes can occur. While probabilities are different for each person and/or disease, e.g. Cystic Fibrosis may have fewer probabilities to change than a backache, improvements to quality of life and the reduced effects of stressors on all levels can always be facilitated. BodyTalk uses muscle checking to find out what changes the body (via its consciousness) is ready to undertake. The changes requested create a formula that represent the preferred alternate probabilities for that unique body’s parts and systems. The formula is then suggested to the body’s energetic field, followed by implementing a standing wave (catalyst) via tapping over the head, heart and gut brains, which collapses the existing waveform patterns and superimposes the new preferred ones. The energy field then integrates these changes to its patterns, which the body’s structure begins to reflect back through its ameliorated function.

During my BodyTalk session, I felt energy circulating throughout my body, from head to heart, and heart to solar plexus. I became aware of various mental and emotional patterns that related to the energy in these places and could feel its physical blockages. As Jaya observed these patterns, I began to feel the energy in my solar plexus transform and the organs within it come back to life! It was so powerful. I realized once again, the amazing innate capacity our body and mind has for self-healing when we have the courage to observe, listen to and integrate its wisdom. ~Julie, Ottawa For more information and/or to book a BodyTalk session, please visit Jaya’s website at: www.energythrive. com and/or www.bodytalksystem.com, or email her at: jaya@energythrive.com.

Summer – The Perfect Time Written by Alexis Nicol


hat better time than summertime to get in touch with your True Self. It is the part of you that lives and breathes as One with all of Nature, seen and unseen. When we take a walk or sit quietly amongst the beautiful surroundings of nature we are knowingly or unknowingly receiving subtle nudges from the Energy of Creation as it speaks to us. Our hearts take on the natural rhythm of life, beating steadily synchronizing with the vibrations of earth, we become more grounded and in tune. Being in nature we get away from all the busyness of daily life. It is easier for us to still our minds, thus allowing us to become more receptive to the energies of the Universal Life Force. Nature speaks continually to us through our environment. With practice we can see and appreciate the many treasures and gifts She has to offer, receiving and sensing the stories She is whispering to our Soul. I can’t emphasize enough how being out in nature is one of the greatest things we can do for ourselves. It improves our overall health – spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. It cleanses and heals. With every breath taken our lungs are filled with life giving oxygen thus enabling the energy of Creation to flow into

and through our body (blood, bones, organs and brain). Nature is a beautiful and natural medicine for our Soul. Nature is Life, without it we wouldn’t exist. Nature’s energy is in absolutely everything vibrating in the air, water, stones, trees and animals all together, flowing and charging life. It is this Energy that provides us with the ability to live a full life; a life with palpable physical energy, creativity, compassion, etc., constantly moving through space and time. May you enjoy your summer absorbing Nature’s incredible offerings. Breathe, Love, feel and take in the Energy of Life. Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul. She incorporates Reiki, Reflexology, Reconnective Healing®, the Reconnection® and A Course In Miracles in her practice. www.firstlighthealing.com 613-263-7925

uzanne, author of various books and Zen Touch educator, dedicates her life to spreading the techniques of self-healing system focused on controlling the nervous system through “Conscious breathing”, meditation, and a simple technique called ‘Zen Touch”. Last year those who attended the two levels of the ‘Zen Course’ (not to be confused with the Buddhist tradition) had the chance to learn these simple tools with which energetic points or chakras are stimulated in order to eliminate blocks. Eliminating blocks allows energy to flow freely, returning the body, the nervous system thus the emotions to a state of primordial equilibrium. Last year (June 2016), after a long trip; Suzanne walked straight up on stage, no frills, showing no sign of fatigue or jet-lag. She stood quietly for three hours

CELEBRATION Channeled by Lisa Virtue


e are here with you at this time to celebrate all of humanity. You each have a special role to play in the Great Unfolding. Be aware that time and space have no bounds for you. We mean this in the literal sense as your scientists and technology inventors shall surly overcome your limitations. We mean this in the sense of time- and substance-lessness that exists for your true, inner being. It is hard to imagine the capacity to which you are able to affect your perceived universe. You have entrenched deeply in the matter stream. Yet as real and tangible as it may appear, you have the capacity to create it in whatever way you will. You may be wondering how you come to such special powers? Doesn’t it take the powers of God to do such things? Indeed, that is partially true. It does take being a Divine Creator. The secret is…. you already are. Take a moment now to daydream. Imagine an interesting life. What types of challenges would fulfill the adventurer’s soul in this daydream? What loves, interests and friendships would not only be pleasing but advance who you are, and the understanding of that, to new levels? Now finish off the daydream with some flare. Okay. How does it feel then to create? Your daydream experience is analogous to life creation. What did you, the Creator Of All Things (for that is who you and all

else are) decide this life stream was for? Did it satisfy a requirement or need or desire even? Why on Earth has this path been put into expression? You know deep within you. Allow that to find its way to your consciousness here, now. Decide what you choose to do with this new understanding. You can create a life through your conscious decisions. Operating within the physical expression, or tuned into the Divine vibration more directly. Decide for yourselves, Dear Ones, what you will choose to celebrate in and of this life. What are you making of it and does it serve your spirit self? Investigate, if you wish, the way to Divine communion, and/or create that within yourself as a chosen decision to act as the God you are here in Earth time. Enlighten yourself each day with the hopes and passions of a life well lived. Listen to and feel your soul’s response to why you’re here. Go with that Dear Loves. In peace and great blessings, Your true helpers from the beyond. Canada is celebrating…. Celebrate your life, here, with us. In collaboration, Mark Daniel and I have wonderful new offerings for you to discover. Immerse yourself in a CRYSTALS & SOUND BATH. Relax, go deep and beyond as you are held in healing vibrations. Enjoy two skilled practitioners offering powerful transformative energies together. Discover the handbook you actually came with when you join Mark’s ASTROLOGY course. Discourse with the Angels as Lisa channels them for you during a SPIRIT SPEAKS event. All offerings are available as private sessions, as well as our group events.
