The client has full privacy here. The second floor features an open concept area where we hold our workshops.

Increase Your Sense of Well-Being

– Get Unplugged


nformation addiction is getting more and more common. Some of us find it very challenging not to compulsively check our email, update our Facebook status, post to Instagram and similar activities. People are spending more and more time online and it can have negative consequences. It’s very easy to find a big chunk of your day slipping away because of these activities. If you can answer “yes” to these questions, it may be time to unplug: • Do you check your email, the news, Facebook, or any other social marketing site first thing in the morning and the last thing before you head to bed? • Do you ever choose to play around online instead of going out with your friends and family? • Would it really bother you to unplug for 24 hours? If you would like to change your attachment to the digital world, you’re in the right place. These strategies will get you started: • Evaluate yourself. Really take a look at what’s going on. What type of distraction are you most attached to? What time of day do you feel the greatest urge to connect digitally? For a couple of days, track your digital behavior. Keep track of how many times you check your email, tweet, text, and check the internet. • Learn to pause. Addictive behaviors don’t have a lot of thought behind them; they’re practically automatic. When you feel compelled to engage in your addictive pattern, simply stop for a moment and ask yourself, “Why do I want to do this?” Even if you go ahead and indulge in the behavior, at least you’re breaking the knee-jerk response.


• Schedule non-internet time. Have things scheduled that prevent getting online. Go to a movie or meet a friend for dinner. Play with your kids at the park. Leave your digital device in the car or turn it off. The Internet and all the related stuff that goes along with it can be very seductive. It’s a quick and easy way to entertain ourselves. If it becomes a troublesome issue for you, then it’s time to do something about it. Unplug a wee bit and you can discover more joy in your “real” life.

Judging: A Shallow Reaction

By Lynne Cardinal ave you ever caught yourself being judgemental? I’m not saying discerning for what is right for you, I’m talking about a judgement as in “good” and “bad”. The truth is, we may be more judgemental than we realize. If we can become aware of this within us, that becomes a rather humbling moment. Judgemental, me? Embedded in judgement is a shallow perspective usually based on a perhaps unadmitted superiority. Judgments have a negative flavour. It leaves a lot of factors out and focuses on our preferences. It takes us away from our deeper humanity, a potential for compassion and love that rests within us and may remain dormant. We may also be nurturing a certain harshness about ourselves, not just about others, and it may become a compulsive or automatic, judging myself thinking that I’m never good enough. Truth is, it darkens our precious days on this earth. It takes us away from our heart, that sacred well of life that has healing properties which may be the most valuable aspect of our life. Can you recall a moment where you realized you were judging? Can you feel in your body and mind the sensations that the judgement carry? Judgements takes us away from our humanity, and we may find very good reasons to judge, but it is essentially a shallow reaction that is based on ignorance and not knowing that it is harmful when turned onto ourselves. Not knowing that there just may be a story behind the person that you are judging, with layers of deeper levels of emotions, fears, sadness, insecurity. I remember reading one of the Dalaï Lama’s autobiographies where he explained how he practised compassion even towards the ones considered enemies of Tibet. In the many years of spiritual practises that I have had, introspective years based on meditation and on learning ancient philosophical texts where even in Sanskrit texts it is said that judgements is a reaction that is disconnected from our essence. Returning back to the source, to love, to compassion is one of the most beautiful objective we can nurture.

door opens. It stays open for the duration of the time it is acknowledged. This means that you may have the door close as an object of desire. This too is welcomed. The object of desire must become known to the “observer”. This is he who observes reality. The door closes. This is how we are when we dismiss something or wish to block an object. This may also be called “closing the third eye”. It is an attribute of the sensing of this sphere. Therein the individual may become a wave of the vibratory impulse given him. He is able to contribute to the casual influence which surrounds him, in a positive, affirmative manner. These attributes are what men in the Western world call “visions” or the ability to see, or “energy vortexes”. The Eastern learns that he/she is abiding in the self as the process of becoming and this is called “self-realization process”. The man or woman who is involved in this way of becoming is the master of changing form. This is the way of change, or the way of purification. In this way, men/women see what others do not. This is called truth of awareness. © 2001 Sonja Muller All rights reserved Sonja A. Muller Sacred Word Teacher By appointment only

Do Meridians Exist? By Ivy Xie-McIsaac


he meridian is a concept used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Meridians are channels for lifeenergy (Qi) to flow. Some modern scientists doubt the existence of meridians. We say the sun moves from rising to setting even though actually the earth rotates and orbits around the sun. The orbits are for tracing and describe the movement of the sun and the earth and their relationship. Anyone who is looking for a physical track of the orbit is regarded as ignorant. Similarly, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, meridians are for tracing and describe the flow of life-energy and the relationship between energy and the physical body, and the relationship between organs. The physical existence of meridians cannot be found in the body as the orbits of the Earth cannot be seen in the sky. Yin Yoga derives from the Tao, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga. It is a style of Yoga that is used to connect and balance the external environment and the inner world of the Self. Practicing Yin Yoga helps us discover a lifestyle that allows our Self to flow with the rhythm of nature and find a natural way to maintain a happy, wholesome and holistic life for the long term.

Wishingtree Yoga Yin Yoga Teacher Training is not only for one who would like to be a teacher, but is also suitable for anyone who would like to: • Understand the function of the internal organs and how Yin Yoga practice will affect these organs. • Understand emotions and the relationships between emotions and the internal organs, and what the Yoga and Tao perspectives are with regard to these relationships. • Learn basic TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) theory that can be applied to daily life. • Experience and apply Yin Yoga posture sequences for different seasons and the related TCM background. Acupuncture training from The Training Centre of Guangzhou Medical College, China has given me a grounded comprehension of Tradition Chinese Medicine. Over 20 years of Yoga practice and learning from various experienced teachers has given me an extensive understanding of Yoga. May we walk on the journey for health and happiness together.

Ivy’s geography background and travel have given her a unique perspective. Her book A Complete Yoga Manual is a bridge between east and west, modern and ancient, theory and practice. A Complete Yoga Manual by Ivy Xie-McIsaac is available at Singing Pebble Books. For more information please visit www. wishingtreeyoga.ca or contact Wishingtree Yoga at wishingtreeyoga@hotmail.com

Question: How can we have inner peace in today’s chaotic world? he greatest misfortune that can come to a human being is to lose his inner peace. No outer force can rob him of it. It is his own thoughts, his own actions, that rob him of it. Our greatest protection lies not in our material achievements and resources. All the treasure of the world is emptiness to our divine soul. Our greatest protection lies in our soul’s communion with the allnourishing and all-fulfilling Peace. To hope to achieve peace without spirituality is to expect water in the desert. Worries—mental, vital and physical—do exist, but it is up to us whether to accept them or reject them. We are mistaken if we think that peace will, on its own, enter into us near the end of our life’s journey. We must resolve here and now, amidst all our daily activities, to throw ourselves, heart and soul, into the Sea of Peace.

For peace of mind, prayer and meditation are essential. Everything depends on the mind, consciously or unconsciously, including the search for peace. If there is no purity of the mind, there can be no sustained success in the spiritual life. We own peace only after we have totally stopped finding fault with others. When we observe others’ mistakes, we enter into their imperfections. This does not help us in the least. We have to feel the whole world as our very own. We must always discriminate. We have to feel that the outer world which attracts our attention is ephemeral. To have something everlasting, to attain to a rocklike foundation in life, we have to turn toward God. There is no alternative. And there is no better moment to take that turn than when we feel most helpless.

Our peace is within, and this peace is the basis of our life. So from today let us resolve to fill our minds and hearts with the tears of God-devotion, the foundation of peace. If our foundation is solid, then danger can never threaten us. For peace is below, peace is above, peace is within, peace is without Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Dentistry’s a Game

Awareness, Alimentation, Airway, Autonomics, Alignment, Appearance Part 2

By Dr. George Paul Greenacre 3) Nextis AIRWAYS. Our lives are framed between our first breath and our last breath and in between, we are not supposed to snore, snort or have sleep apnea. Why do so many people snore? BECAUSE FACES ARE SHRINKING AND OUR AIRWAYS ARE SHRINKING! This is an overlooked major medical problem and the solution lies in the hands of dentistry and nutritionists with more forward-thinking in planning as a nation about how we grow our next generation of faces and our airways. Why are there so many sleep centers popping up all across the country in all civilized countries? Simple, civilized countries have major food deficiencies and allergies which means smaller palates and thus, smaller nose boxes and more problems with our sinuses. Our kids tend to mouth breathe more and some kids even snore. Snoring is not cute or funny. Snoring is a major health issue relating to low night time healing and low night time brain nutrition and night time heart stress. Our airways are surrounded by a ring of lymphatic tissues

DowntownDowntown and Alta Vista locations location that react badly to bad food choices. What is the answer? Go back to basics. Breastfeed for two years or more, and then avoid the bad foods like sugars and grains and seek to consume as many sources of trace minerals as you can find. Supplement our children’s diets with bone meal, fish meal, bone marrow, and bone broth soups, and grow perfect faces again. Stop changing the human swallow with artificial latex nipples that change the force direction of the tongue and the swallow. Do not create bad swallows or “tongue thrusts” in the first place. When upper jaws do not develop or palates are too small, this has major consequences for ENTs and dentists. Then the lower jaws cannot grow downward and forward as much as they should so the tongue cannot get the heck out of the way of the airway! It is a vicious cycle. In 2006 the American Academy of sleep Medicine said oral or orthodontic appliances are excellent choices for mild-to­ moderate sleep apnea. Why? Because these appliances can pull the lower jaws downward and forward which pulls the tongue forward out of the airway. The “0” in orthodontics stands for OXYGEN, THE FIRST FOOD IN LIFE! You should know that one prominent Chicago MD thinks that all ADHD kids have both sleepdisordered breathing and dietary issues and that is the main cause of ADHD.


4) Next is AUTONOMICS Dr. Henry Ulhlemeyer M.D. said, “If the mandible is not physiologically-positioned, all stress hormones are automatically stimulated; all muscles tense, blood pressure rises to overcome resistance, pulse quickens, respiration is shallow and loses efficiency. The body raises its blood sugar to fuel this emergency, releases adrenalin and increases the pain threshold. The gastrointestinal tract responds acutely...” We need the super-important autonomic nervous system working for us to relax and digest and recover from stressful events in life. We need our parasympathetic system working to relax and enjoy life. When our sympathetic system predominates, we are stressed and doctors call it sympathetic dystrophy.”

If we grow inadequate airways and bad bites, then the trigeminal nerves are compromised in their functioning. This leads to the production of Substance P, which is a major inflammatory neuropeptide which nobody in Ottawa yet knows much about because the leading expert on this phenomenon lives in California. His name is Dr. Dwight Jennings. Just google his name and the words Substance P. This is a treat to read and his research is excellent. Here is his quote. “It is my belief and clinical experience that the primary mechanism by which stressed bites impact health is by way of increased trigeminal nerve tonicity, which leads to elevated substance P.” So bad bites cause major stress to the whole person and this can adversely affect your entire autonomic nervous system. One other M.D. Presidential physician Dr. Alexander Leeds commented, “This (correcting of the bite) is some of the greatest treatment of chronic pain symptoms that I have come across in over fifty years of medical practice.” If we do grow our faces well, there are consequences. 5) Next is ALIGNMENT Today many people have upper jaws that are undersized and this causes the lower jaw to sit too far back or off to one side, or the lower jaw sits into too deep a bite. Now know this: when your jaws are off your neck, vertebrae are off. too. In fact, one researcher found that the number one symptom of a stressed jaw joint (TMJ) problem was a sore neck in over 90% of the cases studied. The irony of a posterior jaw posture is that this creates a likelihood of a forward head posture. So now you have a bowling ball-sized head sitting off centre on your slender spinal column. That means that a bad bite affects your entire spinal alignment. You can take that to the bank Fellow members of the American Academy of craniofacial pain all had patients report that when their bite was rebalanced their neck pain and their low back pain went away. The probable reason for that is your cranial membranes called the dura attached only on your neck vertebrae and your sacral area, so when you loosen up the system by correcting the bad bite, then the dura relaxes and the back pain goes away. We all hear the expression “everything is connected to everything.” We all have to relearn this because we all knew this alignment stuff when we were kids and “connected” when we sang: “The jaw bone is connected to the head bone. The head bone is connected to the neck bone, The neck bone is connected to the back bone.” Be aware! Observe those little clues we get in life. 6) Finally, we have APPEARANCE. How do you not respond to a beautiful friendly SMILE? We are aware that appearance can be the great deception... because sometimes things are not as good or as real as they look.


Dolphin Dentistry Oral Health is Now Essential for Total Health Call for a free consultation 613 234-5758 www.dolphindentistry.com info@dolphindentistry.com Today, dentistry is a reflection of our society and all of us trying to look our best or look younger. So indeed, cosmetic dentistry has blossomed and that is a good thing. Our newest methods are amazing: e-max porcelain makes incredible smiles with crowns or veneers. Lumineers are the thinnest and mean that you hardly touch the original tooth. Then there is something removable called a “Snap on Smile” that pops right over your existing teeth. Literally an instant smile. Then Dr. Rod Kurthy has developed a bleaching system that is head-and-shoulders better than any other. However, sometimes I feel that we are put promoting esthetics ahead of other priorities like the airways and the alignment and diagnosing inflammation.

t was said long ago that there would be those who would be born into this planet to bring what is called the light back to it, to remind others of what had been forgotten. Many of you have forgotten yourselves your purpose and your missions as you incarnate over and over in this planetary system. We are here today to remind you that your voice as well as your inner strength is just as valuable as your actions and your thoughts, for when you, “the chosen ones” choose to dedicate your time in things that do not benefit your spirit or the spirit of the land, or the spirit of others you are losing yourselves in the energies you came here to assist in healing. Assisting the energies is one of your priorities; for you all come in different shapes, sizes, styles, genders, generations, voices. Your own abilities are unique to you and to the world. You come here to create change not only in your own existence, but also in the existence of others as you assist in moving these energies in them and through them. We are here today to remind you of this work, for many of you have forgotten who you are. And so through this channel we begin to channel out frequencies to you all who are listening and reading now to remind you of that little spark that lays dormant inside of you. Some of you have already notice this spark

but have chosen to ignore it and some of you are already taking action, but you are taking action still with fears, still with doubts about your work, about who you are, about what you are to do here. We remind you that you are not alone, and that you have within you all the abilities, all the skills you need in order to move forward into your work, into your missions. You are loved and will always be, you are supported and will always be; you are supported and will always be. For this world does not work on its own, there are many of us in other realms, in other realities that also work with the world, with this planet, with the consciousness of the planet. All of us are working at our own level, with our own abilities, with our own skills in our own way. Do not compare yourself to others for when you do that you diminish who you are, you diminish your work, your abilities and your own potential. Many of you seek specific instructions on how to do your work, but we tell you, those seeds where planted in you long ago and the creation that you have inside of you has already been born. You just have to tap into it and trust, trust in yourself, in your abilities and in that calling you have within you. Trust that spark of light in you, trust the breath of God in you, trust your strength. Meet each other, yes, and hold each other’s hands if that feels good, for physical company is always welcome when you are in the physical world, but do not judge each other and do not try to find the answers in others for you all carry the answers within yourselves. You are loved and will always be, you are love and will always be. May the blessings of the heavens be always upon you and may your path be lit by the light of the Divine Creator. For all is love and all is light.We are the Keepers

Let’s Define It and Understand It By Jen Wozny


he phenomenon of “awakening” is sweeping through our world, and since it is affecting change in ourselves and our societies, it is important to understand what it means. First consider the root word being used: to be awake. Per the dictionaries, “awake” means: “to become conscious or aware of something”; “to arouse from sleep or a sleep-like state”; and “to make active.” The converse word, “asleep,” means: “lacking sensation”; “inactive; dormant”; “not alert; indifferent”; and a “complete or partial suspension of consciousness.” So, if the world is indeed becoming more aware of something, then to what are we awakening? The answer is two-fold. First, people are becoming more aware of: our human potential.  As the Masters have shown us throughout history, the full potential of a human is great.  Think levitation, teleportation, telepathy, spontaneous healing, and so much more.  It is this type of awareness that is generally associated with spiritual pursuits. Second, people are: awakening to see the world more clearly than ever before.  We are seeing how things really work, who or what is really in control of our institutions and policies, and the subtle things that might be keeping us just a bit smaller than we would like to be. It is this type of awareness that tends to call for worldwide change.

Importantly, the two types of awakening are independent of each other. A person awakening to their own fullest potential is not necessarily also seeing the world more clearly; because they are looking inward.  And a person who sees the world clearly is not necessarily also seeing their own personal potential; because they are looking outward. Both types, however, generally cause the people involved to become active in adjusting their lives— bringing them more in alignment with what they now know to be true. While the process can be messy, fundamentally the phenomenon of awakening is a positive shift for all of us. If you would like assistance with the awakening process, we would be happy to help you.  Visit www. PutTheLightHere.com to schedule your appointment.

Alpha With a Heart



was watching an investment program recently where they were interviewing a famed US investment manager. The story goes that he was called up by Deepak Chopra back in 2015 and asked if it was at all possible to invest using socially responsible criteria. This person had never heard of such investment criteria and promised Deepak that he would get back to him. He was totally amazed in finding out that there did exist a very large industry that invested using environmental, social and governance criteria (ESG) and that it had been around for several years. In fact, well over 20% of global institutional investment pools use ESG models and this amount is growing at a very fast pace. Alpha is a tool that the investment industry uses to measure the amount of excess return that an instrument (stock, bond, your portfolio) generates over and above what the market is doing. The more alpha you are getting the better you are doing. The real question thus becomes: Can one invest their money using ESG to generate the optimal amount of return (alpha) within a desired amount of risk? The short answer is a resounding YES. It is possible to design a proper portfolio and not sacrifice the desired alpha by either excluding certain sectors of the economy or by including other, more desirable sectors. I call this Alpha with a Heart and it

The Gift of Discouragement

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) iscouragement can feel awful. It’s heavy in the body. You mind may replay a story that nothing seems to work. You may think that there’s something wrong with you, and you just don’t have it in you to keep going. You may feel hopeless. I hear you!! I feel you! I really do. I hear this a lot from clients with respect to their healing journey too: “I have tried so many things and nothing changes.” Sound familiar? It definitely doesn’t mean that you’ve exhausted all the possibilities that cause your pain, but it’s understandable that you would feel discouraged. You’re not alone. There is a deep negative agenda on Earth to keep you discouraged. Our cells do remember the injustice of the alien invasion and our enslavement. But this can’t be the justification for allowing discouragement. The only real question to ask yourself is, “Do I keep relinquishing my freedom by consenting to the plan to dis-courage me?” When you feel despairing, you may feel entangled in the pain body and just don’t see a way out. You want to give up - the epitome of powerlessness. However, as long as you have breath you have choice. So recognize the spark of hope in this: your ego wants to give up! But your soul is seeking reconnection to Source. See this truth. The soul is seeking surrender.

To see the Light, you have to be willing to meet the discouragement to discover what possibilities exist beyond it. You have to want to know truth more than you want to avoid discomfort. If you go through your experience, with gentle conscious welcome and vulnerability, you may just find your authentic life! You’re never energetically separate from your Spirit. You are infinite possibilities! Discouragement is only temporarily forgetting that you are that.

What Is Hypnosis?

Part 3 of 3 By Luke Michael Howard PhD he thing with hypnosis or any kind of change work, any quality type of change work is this: we have a neurological pathway, a way of doing something. Example is the smoker. They smoke. They get stressed, they smoke. It’s that time at work, they’ve got a 10-minute extra break, they smoke. They’re happy, they smoke. They’ve just had amazing sex, they smoke. They’ve just finished dinner, they smoke. They’ve just had a glass of wine or beer or whiskey and then they smoke. It’s automatically linked to it. There is a neurological pathway. I get this trigger, I do this thing. There’s only one path. One of my main jobs in hypnosis is to help set up a new neurological pathway. So we interrupt the old neurological pathway. And think about the neurological pathway as a road. If you’ve only got one road to travel down, when you’re angry, when you’re sad, when you’re craving a cigarette, more food, crack, heroin, love, if you only got one road you’re always gonna travel down that one road. However...and what we do in hypnosis is we help to set up a new neurological pathway in the sessions and the work together. So you now have another


path and another road to travel down. And we’ve got two ways of learning. The first way we learn is by practical skills in a waking state every day, i.e. Tiger Woods, hit the ball this length with this kind of stroke, if that’s the right terminology, for golf. Drill, drill, drill, over and over again. And we do learn at a practical level. However, unconsciously, when we sleep at night and we have good, high-quality sleep, our brain, our unconscious mind, if you will, will take account of what happened that day. And like a connect the dots game that you used to play as a kid, it joins up the dots of your day. And that’s how it makes a new neurological pathway. The more you go down the new neurological pathway, the new normal, the new behaviour, that old road, that old pathway gets shut down. Because if there’s a road that no one travels down anymore, over time what happens to it? It gets derelict, it gets shut down. It returns to how it was. It gets overgrown by grass, by moss, by trees. And after a while, that road just ceases to be a road anymore. It goes back to how it was naturally because you’ve got this new neurological pathway that when you see this or when this trigger comes in, you now respond in a different way. There have been tests


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

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

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


certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. Dr. Luke has been featured in all forms of media such as Tone Magazine, CTV Morning Live, and CBC Radio. He has developed an advanced hypnotherapy technique that turns weak willed smokers into empowered Non-Smokers in just one hour. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 95% success rate. This is incredible when you think that patches are only about 16% successful. We are so confident in the success of this treatment that we offer a free backup session for the remaining 5%. In fact, if after the session any one should need an extra session, it’s theirs, FREE OF CHARGE.” Dr. Luke explains, “This powerful breakthrough technique combines the latest discoveries in hypnosis and the new science of personal achievement known as Neuro Linguistic

Programming. This takes the power of hypnosis to a new level in helping people take back control of their lives.” Many local doctors are so impressed by the power of hypnosis that they are now referring many of their patients to Dr. Luke for his Accelerated Change Stop Smoking Programme. Dr. Luke says, “I am currently building a Doctors Referral Network to keep local GP’s informed of my developments and to keep them informed of their patients’ progress. Many celebrities, professional business people, nurses and housewives have benefited from stopping smoking with hypnosis, SO CAN YOU! The good news is that this incredible method of stopping smoking is available locally. The bad news there usually is a two or three week waiting list for an appointment – but even the medical profession believes it’s worth waiting for.

July/August 2018

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


done on songbirds. When a baby songbird is around the mother songbird, in the daytime, in a wakened state, it sings. There are little neurological devices to put on songbirds’ heads so they can actually monitor the brain wave activity. And when a songbird sings, there’s a certain part of their brain that goes off. They call it the learning part of the brain. The interesting thing is this, though. When this songbird sleeps, the same part of the brain that’s responsible for learning is getting triggered off. So yes, you do need to learn stuff in a wakened state, but also in a sleeping state of high-quality sleep, the unconscious mind is working to join up those dots. Equally, both are important. To be hypnotized, you’re already hypnotized. But to be very successful in hypnosis, we just need three things. You need to want to be there, you need to want to be hypnotized. You need to want it for yourself. You’re not being pressured by someone else to quit smoking, to lose weight, to let go of your anger, your depression, your sadness, your trauma, your PTSD. You want to let go of it for yourself. And, yes,, other people might benefit from it. And number three, you can follow simple instructions. Meaning if I say close your eyes, you do it, or if I say uncross your legs, you don’t question me. No, you just uncross your legs. You can follow simple instructions. As long as you can do that, you can be hypnotized, and you can make profound changes in your life.

So to summarize today’s podcast, what is hypnosis? It’s an automatic response in spite of conscious awareness. You’re going into hypnosis multiple times a day when you’re reading a good book, when you’re daydreaming, highway hypnosis, when you’re watching a good movie. Old school definition would be bypassing the critical factor, bypassing your conscious mind, the analytical mind, and going straight into the involuntary mind, the unconscious mind. It’s about being rather than doing and simply letting go of any concepts. That’s my definition of hypnosis. That’s how I explain hypnosis to my clients and show them many, many practical applications of it that before they’re actually even into. Formal hypnosis, involuntary movements are happening with their body and their problems seem to be disappearing. Thank you for listening to podcast number 10, what is hypnosis? And we’ve got a wonderful thing that’s happening actually this month. Always Believe, Luke

Natural Medicine: Better Than Pill?


ith the side-effects related to the traditional medicine, people are disillusioned and recognize the selflimiting nature of this approach. They turned towards natural modalities, energy medicine, supplement, practices that treat the body as a whole, i.e. physical, emotional, mental and spiritual (PEMS) states. The advent of Quantum Physics permitted the knowledge, wisdom from ancient civilizations and sciences to be acknowledged – now finding its way into mainstream society. To deal with the ever-expanding demand for natural products, services and lifestyle, a range of Wellness, Holistic and Integrative Health Clinics have been established. They provide education and guide people in addressing their needs – all-encompassing approach that fosters good PEMS health, lifestyle. The current environment places time restrains on individuals and families, limiting time to address wellbeing needs. With the advance in energy medicine technology, people are exploring viable health alternatives for healthier lifestyle. One such Modality is “Quantum Sound Therapy” that incorporates “Scalar Energy Technology” in “Tesla iQube”. It creates a blissful, zero-point energy field that raises your vibration, shifts your frequencies and transforms your life. By removing blockages in the PEMS bodies, it brings about harmony and helps eradicate health conditions – facilitating a collaborative environment, making “anything is possible” a reality. Given the diversity and interconnectedness of natural modalities, establishment of Wellness, Holistic and Integrative Health Clinics serves useful purpose. It provides centralized location to obtain information to make informed decisions.

I Forgive You & Me

Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol hen we think of forgiveness it usually has to do with seeing blame or guilt in someone else. With great effort we say that we forgive them. We proudly tell ourselves and others that we don’t have an issue with that person anymore as we have forgiven them for whatever it was we believed was an affront against us or someone close to us. But, we continue to feel uncomfortable when we see them or encounter similar situations. If this is so then we still have work to do. We have forgotten to forgive ourselves. What? You say – it was them who did it not me, so why should I forgive myself? Are you crazy? When I find myself drawn into the emotion of guilt or blame (myself or others) I ask myself to go back, in my mind, to the earliest time I can remember when I experienced similar emotions. Doing so helps me realize that I had actually made a decision to believe an untruth. I chose to feel abandoned or rejected which further lead to me to the mistaken belief that I wasn’t good enough and not worthy of being loved. This emotion will inevitably come back time and again until it is confronted and healed. This can be accomplished by forgiving everyone involved especially myself for choosing the erroneous belief in the first place.


With great humility I push myself to accept that I made a simple mistake, that it’s OK to forgive and to remember my innocence. We are all born pure, innocent and deserving of being loved. With tender persistence and loving forgiveness we can heal spiritually, emotionally, mentally and even physically (holding on to guilt and blame will take its toll). Our forgiveness is imperative. It is liberating to realize we can heal ourselves by dispelling these toxic delusions. Practising forgiveness opens ourselves to receiving the love we were born to experience. Forgiveness is when we truly and lovingly release ourselves and others of ours and theirs mistaken beliefs or errors absorbed in our consciousness. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. www.firstlighthealing.com 613-263-7925


Children’s Spirituality Begins with You! Learn to live within Spirit. Make the shift from Ego to Soul-Centered Living

Subtle Energy Discernment Training

Diane Oliver Intuitive Life Strategist, Shamanic Healer, ''Spirit in 3D'' Teacher


hildren are born spiritual. They come from Spirit and they count on us to show them how to manage Spirit in a physical body in a material world. Our words, beliefs, and actions and those of our caregiver’s, are our child’s soul building blocks. The child learns by osmosis through repetition and imitation. When we wonder what life will be like for future generations, the answer lies in how we choose to live our life today, personally. Our only true legacy is our example as a group, as a society. What we set in motion today will have a rippling effect on future generations. This is the universal law of cause and effect. What we do ‘’habitually’’ generally becomes our family ways. The status quo is acceptable until it is challenged. The #metoo movement is forcing a review of society’s old way of thinking about women and their role in life. It is demanding it be revamped. All of a sudden, individuals are expected to have a respectful Soul-centered approach to life instead of an Egocentered one. How can this happen overnight when it has been ingrained in all of us as a group for hundreds of years? The answer lies in the sensitivity training that is found in the universal language of the Soul. The Soul is one of the components that make us human. It follows the rule of Universal Laws established by Great Spirit, while the Ego and its antics are defined by the self-centered human mind. We are here to learn how to manage this duality. It’s not difficult. If you start to learn and integrate this forgotten language now, your children will be affected. Over time, #metoo will not be needed since society’s core will have changed its course permanently. If you are interested in exploring this transition, reach out this summer! Diane Oliver. A resourceful intuitive strategist and soul healer and the founder of EgoTriage, Diane is not attached to her phone or computer.

magine experiencing that deep relaxation, similar to a shampoo that we all welcome and enjoy with our hairstylist or barber, during an Indian Head Massage session; and lasting longer than a couple of minutes! An Indian Head Massage (IHM) treatment is the time for the client to Relax~Rejuventate~Refresh. What I have noticed is an IHM gives the client permission to slow down, take the steam off the pressure cooker, in a quiet, calm and peaceful environment. Reported benefits of this wonderful practice are feelings of general relaxation, to releasing tight and painful muscles, easing stiffness, along with breaking down knots in muscles. As well, there is possible improved lymphatic drainage which helps in the removal of waste products and toxins. An IHM treatment encourages deeper breathing and deep relaxation; many clients comment on how enjoyable and restful the experience is. A session of IHM triggers the release of “feel good” chemicals called endorphins, which uplifts the spirit creating a sense of well-being. A few years ago, Indian Head Massage (IHM) became the catalyst for me, to open a business to give back to many that silently have experienced or are experiencing the emptiness of their adult children leaving home. This period in my life was extremely lonely, my physical health was going south quickly, and quite honestly, I felt very little possibilities to move ahead as I had become a shadow of myself. I am grateful today on all levels; physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual for the interplay of a healthy balance I now live. Life is meant to be joyful! This is why I chose to become an Indian Head Massage Certified Practitioner.

BodyTalk & Somatic Experiencing:

Am I Okay?


his is a wonderful question to ask ourselves, particularly if we have sustained trauma that has left lingering symptoms of physical, mental and/or emotional pain in our bodies and/or minds. While a trauma may have occurred, months, years, or even decades ago, our bodies still may be bracing themselves against the physical, mental and/or emotional blow/s that we experienced. When this happens, our muscles continuously fire signals to our brain telling it that we are still in acute danger, flooding the body with stress hormones and often leaving us in a state of hypervigilance (overprotecting, tensing, bracing). If there is too much activation for the nervous system to contain, the parasympathetic freeze response will also turn on and we will find ourselves immobilized and often in a state of hypovigilance (underprotecting, dissociating, numbing). These ongoing responses eventually tire the muscles, tissues, nervous, digestive and immune systems, etc. and lead to chronic pain and/ or disease over time. The mind often also follows by becoming anxious, depressed and/or looking for ways to escape the pain through addictions, numbing, pleasure seeking, etc. Both BodyTalk energy therapy and Somatic Experiencing trauma integration therapy can help to unwind these symptoms and let our minds and bodies know that we are physiologically okay. BodyTalk facilitates this by re-establishing communication between the various parts and systems that have become stressed, enabling energy to flow between them once more and the body and mind to heal itself. Somatic Experiencing facilitates this by helping to assess where we are “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and then tracks and discharges related bodily sensations to resolve fixated physiological states. As this resolution occurs, a deep sense of safety is restored from within and we begin to feel “okay” again on the physiological, physical, mental and emotional levels, which is essential to our experience of wellness, joy and aliveness in our lives. “Jaya has taken me on a profound journey of healing. From working through past traumas to preparing for the birth of my child, we have peeled back the layers together in a gentle and deeply restorative way. My health has returned and I find myself closer to inner peace than ever before.” ~ Ashley, Ottawa, ON

Wellness Centre Imaginarium By Louise Lalande ~ coCreations


ssuming you could have ANY kind of wellness centre in Ottawa, what would it be? With no worries about money, location, time, planning, scheduling, what would you build? Would there be any special healing practitioners or unique features? Would it be online, or made of bricks and mortar? Who would it be for or focus on? What Nourish your creativity would you name it? These are questions I’ve had the July and August: pleasure of toying with: Ambrosia, my imaginary project, is a welcoming Summer Painting by the Lake building where allopathic medicine and alternative holistic therapies Connect with our artPlay community coexist to advance and enhance health services.

Essential Oils for Love


lang ylang, Cananga oderata, literally means flower of flowers. As well as lowering high blood pressure, general skin care and calming the central nervous system, it is also toted as an aphrodisiac. I find ylang ylang on its own is really overpowering. If you wish to balance out its intensity, it blends well with lavender and citrus oils. My favourite combination is with lime and black pepper! Patchouli, Postemon cablin, is another oil of many talents. It is also useful in skincare, as well as repelling insects and feelings of exhaustion. Patchouli is indicated in cases of frigidity, and, as with ylang ylang can be a pretty intense aroma on its own. Patchouli blends well with lavender, orange and bergamot, to name a few. I tend to think of frankincense (Boswellia carteri) primarily as a spiritual oil, although it is also excellent for pulmonary congestion and digestive aid. In terms of enhancing sexuality, frankincense lessens anxiety, tension and stress-all conducive to a romantic interlude. Geranium is a wonderful balancer: for hormones and for skin. Because of its hormonal effect, geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) may help to balance out moods, and so is included here. Everyone knows lavender, a mood enhancer and calming oil. There are many different species: the two best known being Lavandula angustifolia and Lavendula officinalis. Lavender also has wonderful skin cell regenerating properties, and is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so useful with injuries.

Soundara Rajan

Daughter of Professor Krishnamurthy

The flower kingdom also gives us rose, jasmine and neroli. Rose is a heart-centered oil and, like geranium and lavender has an affinity with the female reproductive system. The best known species are Rosa damascena and Rosa centifolia. The florals are pretty easy to blend with other oils. Jasmine is considered an aphrodisiac. Common species are grandiflorum and sambac. Jasmine Grandiflorum flowers bloom in the early dawn as opposed to Sambac which blooms in the evening. Jasmineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to be an antidepressant may help its reputation as an aphrodisiac. It is also wonderful for coughs and laryngitis, and is helpful for most skin types. Clary sage is included because it is a good nerve tonic, as well as an antidepressant and sedative. It does have the reputation of being an aphrodisiac, and this may come from the aforementioned characteristics, as well as its ability to balance out the female reproductive system. Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) has an unusual scent that blends well with the citrus oils, among others. I would be remiss if I did not mention sandalwood in this article, however, the East Indian sandalwood we know and love (Santalum album) is now an endangered species. There is an Australian variety that is cultivated, Santalum Spicatum, and is said to have better anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. It is well known as an aphrodisiac, helping with impotence and frigidity. Its scent is very gentle, and combines well with most other oils. You may be beginning to see a pattern here: many of the oils are relaxing! Scent is very powerful on its own, but the advantage of the essential oils is that they have therapeutic properties as well. I welcome you to come in and experience the scent of these oils firsthand! Š2013 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St (Near Somerset).

Us Book Views: 5 Star For “Our World Is Burning”


his book exudes a quiet power with the strength to reshape the reader’s mindset. In a time of stress, uncertainty, rampant consumerism, and divisive politics, one could easily succumb to the modern dogeat-dog mentality. It’s easy to feel like a small, meaningless pebble in the vast sea of society, but Dr. Ian Prattis—guru, Zen teacher, former anthropology professor, and writer—believes there’s a better way to live based on mindfulness and simplicity. In his essay collection, Our World is Burning: My Views on Mindful Engagement, Dr. Prattis argues that we can improve not just our lives but the world around us by becoming an island of mindfulness within human society. Our World is Burning presents sixteen essays which strive to teach the benefits of mindful engagement for individuals, communities, and the Earth.

Please join us for a free spiritual session in Ottawa with:

September 1st, 1 PM- 4 PM 1480 Heron Road Please contact 613 301 8995/ 613 799 6763 or 613 852 3398 for details. YouTube: TheAnchorOfLife with Brajesh Gautam


These essays are divided into four parts, each based on a different area which mindfulness can positively impact: global climate change, family and community, healing and transformation, and spiritual support. Dr. Prattis shows readers what mindfulness can do for them and the small ways in which readers can rewire their consumerist thoughts and become more present in the here and now. While conveying many of the same messages as other spiritual works, Our World is Burning stands out for its calm honesty. Dr. Prattis does not pull any punches, whether he’s talking about society, his loved ones, or his own life. He lays out the facts truthfully but without the angry, accusatory tone which often accompanies topics such as global climate change. Readers might feel guilty as a result of this book’s truths, but not because of the author’s tone; instead, they will feel the weight of his words, and readers will know that it is time to take action. Fortunately for those who do not like academic essays, Dr. Prattis does not rely on this method to convey his views. Also, as Dr. Prattis warns in the “Invitation,” these essays do not focus on scientific research or statistics. Rather, Dr. Prattis uses personal anecdotes, references to prophetic movies and books, and even a fictional depiction of measures which may become necessary due to global climate change. This variety allows readers to avoid any dry patches due to the monotone of typical essay writing—that is, if they are truly interested in the subject matter. That being said, this book is not for everyone. Dr. Prattis makes claims which will rub some readers the wrong way. Namely, his remarks on the destructive nature of consumerism and society’s reluctance to adapt will strike a nerve with more conservative readers. However, those really looking for what’s missing in their lives, those who want to make a difference but don’t think they can, will find a wise guide in Dr. Prattis. He teaches readers that they might just be one person, but it only takes 2% of us meditating to bring change to the entire world. His personal anecdotes and conversations with family members will especially touch such readers, showing them that Dr. Prattis knows these methods work firsthand and is not just a “do as I say, not as I do” instructor. For those wanting an insightful, inspirational examination of mindfulness in the modern era, look no further. This book will strike your heart and point you down a path of meditation, simplicity, and mindfulness. This new path will be difficult, but the peace and hope which Dr. Prattis promises will be worth the obstacles Order Book: Amazon, Indigo, Author Autograph http://ianprattis.com/OurWorldIsBurning.html

Happiness on Parliament Hill July 30 Ian Prattis


appiness on Parliament Hill is a movement to bring greater happiness, love and community to the city of Ottawa and globally through accessible meditation and mindfulness events. Mondays during the summer. WHERE: Parliament Hill, July 30, 12 noon – 1pm with Dr Ian Prattis, Zen Teacher. WHY: You’re looking to infuse your day and life with a greater dose of positive vibes and happiness and be part of a community that fosters loving kindness in each of its members. WHO: Why You of course! My Bio - Poet, Global Traveler, Founder of Friends for Peace, and Spiritual Warrior for planetary care, peace and social justice. I studied Tibetan Buddhism with Lama Tarchin in the early 1980’s, Engaged Buddhism with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh much later, Christian meditation with the Benedictines, and was trained by First Nation medicine people and shamans in their healing practices. I also studied the Vedic tradition of Siddha Samadhi Yoga, and taught this tradition of meditation in India and was ordained as a teacher and initiator – acknowledged in India as a guru. I presently live in Ottawa, Canada and encourage people to find their true nature, so that humanity and the planet may be renewed. I mostly stay local to help turn the tide in my home city so that good things begin to happen spontaneously. My novel – Redemption – is being made into a movie – and my poetry, memoirs, fiction, articles, blogs and podcasts appear in a wide range of venues. The latest book is “Our World is Burning: My Views on Mindful Engagement” #1 on Amazon.ca for a while. Beneath the polished urban facade there remains a part of human nature that few acknowledge, because it is easier to deny the basic instincts that have kept us alive on an


unforgiving earth. I choose to go there in my literary work. A stone tossed into the waters of life. In my career as an anthropologist I was fortunate to encounter many First Nation story tellers across North America: Dene, Hopi, Ojibwa, Algonquin, Inuit – to mention a few. Their poetic recounting of myths and history had a deep impact upon me. I would say that without poetry cultures implode. Over a period of thirty years, four extraordinary aboriginal medicine people enhanced my process of remembering. Through their mentoring, I learned how to reconfigure my understanding of time, place, consciousness, and re-write some of Carl Jung’s psychology. I chose to listen to the feminine voice of Earth Wisdom rather than to the multitude of competing voices in my deep unconscious. My books weave together seamlessly to create inspiration. Global citizens are staring into the abyss. Instead of being eaten up by it all, I say to them - “Awaken spiritually,” for that transforms everything. We have made our world an unpredictable beast because we fail to work with it intelligently. Turning on the switch of awakening seems to be a good idea right now. We just need to touch the sacred in ordinary experiences of life to find the courage and determination to transform. My purpose in life is to share my wealth of experience on how to live in harmony not just with ourselves but with the place we call home… Earth. The human race does not need to be stuck with maladaptive options and patterns. My writing delivers a vigorous message about personal transformation in order to become responsible stewards of the earth and society. Description of Meditation offering 1. Settling and stretching into the space of meditation. 2. Then 15 minutes of chanting a Tibetan chant about wellness. In English. Accompanied by a shaman’s drum. 3. Final 15 minutes - meditation on the breath I will have a meditation CD and offer this at half price to anyone interested. Facebook Author Page www.facebook.com/IanPrattisAuthor/

Divine Presence Channelled by Lisa Virtue


hat is Divine Presence? Is it how you feel? Is it what is said, expressed or communicated in some way? A sense or a feeling perhaps? How is one to know Divine Presence, to distinguish it from other? These questions have been asked by many spiritual seekers through the eons. The beginning, or perhaps it’s truly the ending, is, “Who am I?” In becoming more acutely aware of how you feel as who you are, you establish a baseline of comparison. If you are expanding in to the field of communication with other lifeforms, other energy beings, then you will more clearly ascribe attributes as “other” in comparison to your own, well-understood sense of self. This leads to greater clarity not only in communication, but in discernment when picking up on the energies present around you. This is helpful for life in the duality perspective. Choosing to distinguish what is truly yours versus the energy being generated by someone near you can save much confusion. Yet Divine Presence is ultimately a state beyond duality. So why then is it even worth mentioning? There is a sense within you of something better, beyond, or more than you sense yourself as now. Longing calls to you. The longing stems from the growing clarity within you, the growing connection to your divine self. As the veil lessens, the sensing of the closeness of “the answer” becomes even stronger. That which you seek can be labelled “Divine Presence.” All is unified in the Divine. Dualism is but


a state of mind, a temporary thought pattern. Divine Presence in much of history is attributed to a single deity held in a framework understood by mankind. Yet here we are, down the road, still searching. The answer, ultimately, is that you truly are Divine Presence. Everything surrounding you is part of Divine Presence. Relax the hold that constructs of your society have upon your mind, your discernment and your thinking patterns. This will aid in easing you in to the relaxed knowing, or remembering, of what is felt at a level inside you that has been a wisp until now. The time now is chosen for you to grab hold of the wisp in your focus. To alter your focus to highlight the inner aspect. Choose to sense, interpret, feel and know through the lens of the inner self. Your decision to do so allows the hold of that which confronts you daily as fearfully real, to lose its grip and start to fade. Soon you begin to filter your perceptions through the new lens of Self. What this means is a new era for you and those in your perception. Trust and have faith that the inner presence is the Divine Presence that is you, broaching in to this dream you are having to aid, as you have called on it to. Bringing you slowly back to the awareness of your true Self. Bringing forth a more satisfying “lucid dream” as you make your way eventually to return to full consciousness in your true, divine self – Source. Fear not. It is you who answers your call. It is you who creates. With love. Always. Graciously awaiting your return to consciousness, Your Own Beingness. I will be lifting my roots from Ottawa in August to embrace being a mobile, global citizen. First stop is Costa Rica. I’m so excited that there is a whale sanctuary nearby with a festival in September. If you would like to come and partake we can create a full retreat. Simply email your interest. I will make periodic visits to Ottawa to offer healing, channeling, events and workshops. While elsewhere, sessions can be done via phone, internet, or distance. In person sessions are now available until the end of July. Channelled articles will be available on my website’s blog. …Always together in Spirit… See you soon… Namasté. Lisa

T H E H E A RT O F I N Q U I RY A Diamond Approach Introductory Seminar Open to the Public “ I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being. – Hafiz “

The Diamond Approach is a path of wisdom through direct experience. It recognizes the uniqueness of each

individual and adapts itself to each person’s needs at the time. It does not require that people adapt to some ideal, but welcomes people as they are and helps them to take the natural next step for their unique development. In this weekend retreat we will explore our inner flame. We will look at how it guides our heart on its inner

journey. What dampens this inner fire and what can unleash our passion for truth? We will explore how working with self-inquiry and the practice of presence can open our heart and fuel our flame.


The group is non-residential and will meet 3 times a year in a weekend format. There will be a 4th retreat

via Zoom webinar in the winter. These retreats will include evocative teachings, meditation and body-based practices, experiential exercises, and self-inquiry.
