Presentation Power & The Music of Speech How to activate musical patterns in your voice to optimize presentations, teachings and marketing communications By Daniel Mauro


ave you ever noticed that certain speakers, professors, online marketers, or YouTubers can keep you riveted? Their message sinks in effortlessly and you just want to hear more? You can listen to them for extended periods without getting tired, distracted or losing focus. What is it about their communication style that keeps us so attentive? The short answer is: Music — or what we might call the musicality of speech. While there are a wide variety of variables that combine to produce high impact presenters, great speaking typically hinges on basic musical features, such as rhythm, pitch and tonality. Just as all musical genres consist of melodies, harmonies, rhythms — so it is with human speech. All speech utterances have embedded within them hidden musical patterns that are opaque to us. We are musical in our speech and we do not even notice it! Those speakers that appeal to us the most — that consistently create an ideal sonic atmosphere for the transmission of simple messages and ideas — have optimized the sound frequencies in their voice. Whereas some of these impressive individuals have innate vocal qualities that lend themselves to dynamic teachings and inspired performances; other speakers understand the key ingredients of powerful speaking and have consciously crafted their rhythmic speech patterns in a way that consistently captivates audiences. And the wonderful news is: So can YOU. Sadly, most of us have lost the extensive vocal malleability we were born with. We’ve become comfortable with a constrained voice that is not fully our own. Intuitively, we may feel that something is missing when we communicate with others because of how we sound — and inadvertently, that subtle

disconnect reduces the true power of our message. Communication is everything. In order to be authentic on stage or in more intimate teaching environments or on a livestream video, it’s essential that we learn to harness the vast range of spectral and musical parameters that are available to us as vibrational beings. According to innovative discoveries by sound healing pioneer, Sharry Edwards, the frequency spectrum of your voice mirrors a range of internal biological parameters; for example, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and neurotransmitter levels are all indicated by specific frequency biomarkers in your vocal signature. By modulating the characteristics of your voice using specific sound-based techniques, you can literally transform your brain and body at multiple levels. Your VOICE is truly a multidimensional instrument that can be fine-tuned for greater healing, power, and impact in all communication settings. Join me for an exciting and highly practical Voice-Work Series on 3 consecutive Thursday evenings. Each session is self-contained; however you will benefit greatly by attending all three, as the material and exercises build up sequentially over time. To receive venue details and course synopsis, please REGISTER at WORK: Music of Speech Workshop Series. Thursdays @ 7 pm: July 18, July 25, August 1. With advanced registration, sessions are $20 each OR only $48 for the complete series.

Why We Worry and How to Let it Go




e worry because our brains have not evolved to handle our modern day living. Life is hugely different today from what it was a 200,000 years ago, and our brains are still trying to catch up. So, it is not entirely your fault that you worry even though it doesn’t do much good. It is accepted among animal experts that animals don’t suffer from chronic stress like humans are prone to. Think about a typical white-tail deer. Deer are among the most skittish of animals, but they don’t worry a lot. When faced with a stressor, they deal with it in the moment and then they quickly calm back down. Why we worry: 1. Our brains are still hard-wired to deal with immediate issues. Our brains are still wired to deal with short-term stressors. Unfortunately, much of our life is not shortterm. We worry about putting a new roof on the house next year, saving up for college tuition, or when we might need to replace the car.

In a nutshell, we are too primitive for the society we have created. It is important to develop techniques for dealing with worry and anxiety, since removing the source of the discomfort is not always possible. Here are some strategies to minimize your worries: 1. Remove uncertainty when possible. Be certain you have something to worry about. Uncertainty certainly drives us crazy, so do what you can to minimize or eliminate it. 2. Shift your anxiety to daily actions. Rather than burning up all that energy on worry, spend it on something productive.


Experienced Yoga and Meditation teacher and practitioner

As soon as you take action to resolve an unfavorable situation, your mind relaxes and backs off with that worry. Even while the situation is not completely resolved yet, you worry less whenever you move from thinking to action. An optimistic attitude that your plan will work also helps!! Worry is unproductive. It never solves anything. Use these ideas to make yourself take an action that moves you toward where you want to go instead of your current situation. You will worry less AND have less to worry about as well. Moira HutchisonMindfulness Coach Tarot Card Reader & Energy Healer 613.432.1239

Question: How can we have real joy and even offer it to others? SRI CHINMOY: How can we offer joy to others? To offer joy to others we first have to aspire within ourselves. We have to feel that the world is inside us, not outside us; we have to try to feel that the world is the projection of our life. We have to love mankind soulfully and serve mankind unconditionally. If our inner existence is flooded with joy and delight, only then shall we be eager, more than eager, to help the outer world. But if there is a barren desert within us, if there is no light within us, how are we going to help or serve mankind? First, we have to try to create our own world according to our own satisfaction. When we have created something within ourselves, achieved something divine within ourselves – let us say a world of joy and love – then immediately it will try to reveal and express itself to the world at large. If we have truly acquired joy, then gradually the people around us will be inspired and influenced by our joy. Here on earth we want to have joy but how do we get it? We can get joy only by becoming one with humanity, by sharing our reality with others. When we do not try to perfect others but only try to perfect our own lives, then we will have joy. If we do not expect anything from anybody else, but everything only from God, we will have joy. If we can feel that we are not indispensable, that without us the world can go on perfectly well, then we will have joy. We also get joy not by coming forward before others, but by bringing others to the fore. Real joy we get by self-giving, not by possessing or by showing our own supremacy. When we allow others to get joy first, then we feel that our joy is more complete and more perfect. These are the ways we can all have abundant joy in our life.

Planet Botanix’s Wellness Clinic


lthough Planet Botanix has been around for almost 15 years, our wellness clinic is a bit of a ‘best kept secret’. I think the main reason is because we maintain the back area as a private, sacred space for healing. Many people come in and are surprised that our clinic space is twice the size as the store! Why did I combine a retail store with a clinic and workshop space? I wanted Planet Botanix to be all things to all people. Well, maybe not quite, but I certainly wanted to make all the options available to assisting clients with leading healthier, happier lives. I have been a Certified Aromatherapist since 2005. It was part of my own path to increased good health and wellness of both mind and body, because aromatherapy works on all levels. After certification, I opened the first location on Bank St in the Glebe (we are now in Centretown). Since then, I have discovered many other effective modalities, in part through our host of holistic practitioners in the clinic. I am proud to say we currently offer: Theta Healing Emotional Freedom Technique Bars/Access Consciousness Spiritual Coaching Integrative Energy Therapy Registered Massage Cranial Sacral Therapy Akashic Records Sessions Reiki Astrology Creative Coaching Indian Head Massage Neuro-Linguistic Healing Tea Ceremony Psychic Readings Shamanic Journeying Tarot Colour/Sound Healing Crystal Healing

In addition, we have yoga, meditation and Qi Gong regularly, as well as monthly workshops on a variety of subjects including Tapping, Tarot and Manifesting, among other topics. I can say from first-hand experience that holistic healing has fast-tracked my journey to living a more joyful, more fulfilled life every single day.

Balancing three basic forces to deal with daily life


always loved philosophy and through the exploration of various philosophies, I found for myself that eastern philosophy was the most accessible one. Eastern philosophy is practical, nondogmatic and profoundly spiritual. Last week, speaking with a client about dealing with her inertia, feeling blocked, procrastinating in ways that are detrimental to her, I remembered a rather simple principle that I learned decades ago. Sankhya yog is an ancient school of philosophy that I studied and it helped me find ways to look at life in practical, useful ways. As with all major contemplative philosophies, sankhya yog states that our source is one. Meditation sages of the past saw that the source of all life is absolutely one, and one alone. That means that we all share a common origin and that we come from the same ultimate lineage. From that essence, that pure life force if you may, the world of forms was born. The sages saw that inherent to all forms (e.g., nature, animals, people) there were three basic forces at play. Simple enough, yet wonderfully practical. I used below these basic forces’ Sanskrit names and explain their meaning: 1. Tamas: Inertia, darkness, stillness, ignorance. Though tamas is often understood negatively, it has its place and is needed in positive ways (see the example below). 2. Rajas: Activity, dynamism, growth. 3. Sattwa: Harmony, balance, virtues, depth, perspective, light, awareness. Everywhere we look there is a mixture of these three forces. For example, to grow a flower we plant a seed in the earth, we need to leave it there (tamas: stillness, darkness, inertia), we add water (rajas: activity, growth) and with the right circumstances, a flower grows (sattwa: harmony, beauty, balance of shape, colors). All

three forces exist in various ratios and they are looked at with objectivity. In our life, we can observe what predominates for us at any given time. Feeling sad, stuck (tamas) we can apply the force of rajas to get help, or we look for ways to activate dynamism in our life. Doing so will help us experience more sattwa, light, harmony and awareness in our life. This is a practical way to generate more sattwa in our life, as when sattwa predominates, we experience a deep sense of fulfilment and can access our potential, to live with greater compassion and perspectives, more love, more awareness. Meditation, yoga, tai-chi, good or helpful company and hypnosis are some of the ways to help ourselves cultivate more sattwa. In hypnosis, I help my clients to remove hurdles, obstacles within them, sometimes even based on transgenerational patterns. Then balancing our life becomes easier. This is a brief introduction to these principles. We can learn to balance these three forces within us and around us, so as to generate more sattwa in us and in the world around us. For more information or to book a session, contact me. Lynne Cardinal sees clients individually and she offers group classes and workshops. She has offered Stress Management, Resilience and Burnout Prevention workshops in the government and private sectors for over 30 years. She is also a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss.

Ecological Message from Africa How to stop the destruction of the environment.


ohn Cingolweendaba Lockley, traditional healer and African shaman from Nelson Mandela’s tribe the Xhosa nation, returns to Montreal after his book launch, ‘Leopard Warrior’ last year. Southern Africa is experiencing poaching on an unprecedented level, with animals like the Rhino being threatened with extinction, new solutions are being sought to preserve not only the African wilderness but the entire planet.  John brings wilderness teachings based on one of the oldest shamanic cultures in the world, the sangoma people from Southern Africa. He calls his teachings the ‘Way of the Leopard’ and involve teaching the modern person indigenous technology and how they can connect to their natural intuition, their wildness, and in so doing reconnect with their humanity. Lockley says, “when people are connected to their spirits then their life purpose becomes clear and they act in more altruistic ways to help rather than hinder life on earth”. A key question posed by environmentalists is how to stop poaching and bring more awareness about the fragility of the environment.  What is clear is that wilderness areas around the planet are shrinking at an alarming rate.  As a traditional African healer/ shaman trained in the old ways John teaches people how to reconnect to their inner wilderness; their dreams, ancestors and Soul. His ceremonies and talks are a magical journey to a forgotten world filled with stories, drumming, African chanting and techniques to help the modern person remember how to turn on their intuition, and like the leopard commune in harmony with nature.  John’s new project involves a retreat in the Kalahari desert next year called ‘Dreaming & Tracking’ in the Kalahari. His guests will be Khoi-San/ Bushmen elders. People will learn how to Dream and connect to their Ancestors, as well as animal communication skills and the language of birds.  Lockley believes that the key to our collective human survival involves learning indigenous skills so we can learn to commune in harmony with nature rather than plunder her scarce resources.  He has a vision of ancient and modern man sitting around a fire re-visioning our future. His retreat next year in the Kalahari will be the first of it’s kind and he hopes will spread a message of hope. Miria Baliddawa Shamanic practitioner/chamanisme 613-677-9422


Wellness Centers:


What are they?

wellness center is an establishment that offers health services for the body, mind and spirit.  They usually offer skin care and body services such as fitness, personal training and nutrition consulting. Alternate services such as Feng Shui, Reiki, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine (and much more) are also offered.  In most cases, the term “wellness center” is not fully understood by the users: “Wellness” refers to the well-being of the whole person. It is not,a therefore, exclusively linked to aesthetic treatments but to approaching the specific energy of each client. It is a joint effort, both by the center that offers the services and by the person who uses them. Wellbeing occurs as a consequence of putting the different philosophies of life into a practice that works for the individual. These establishments offer focus on  total wellness and can provide one with methods to suit specific needs/intentions by integrating wellness practices and philosophies, preventative medicines as well as the necessary applications for one’s physical, spiritual and mental balance. In short, the services provided by wellness centers form a large circle of which other concentric circles take part. Wellness centers are not simply defined as a “gym” or “diet-center”; they are much morethan that. The wellness approach is a philosophical change in thinking and practice that focuses on capacity building, maintaining function and minimizing the impact of functional loss. They work as an individual craft as well as in conjunction with other modalities and medical practices. It depends upon each individual to find a wellness center  that meets his/her own specific needs to achieve the desired balance between body, mind and spirit: to have an optimal quality of life. The choice of treatments and disciplines to achieve one’s own balance is essential in achieving success. Should you have interest in our services please visit us at

Healing Your Core Issues

Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psychotherapist, Quantum Energy Therapist, Spiritual Guide


e live in times where the energy coming to us is intense and changing so rapidly sometimes it is hard to stay grounded. Many at this time feel like they are holding on for dear life. If our core emotional self is strong and balanced it makes all these energetic changes easier to handle and more meaningful. So how do we get to the place where we can manage all this change without feeling like we are falling apart? The answer is simple--- get down to the core issues that keep us feeling unlovable, insecure and inadequate. For those of you who have been following my work for years you will remember that I have found the inner child work to be the fastest and most efficient way to heal the core wounding of childhood. No matter how wonderful (or not) our parents were, we still came out of our early years, 0 to 8 frightened, angry and feeling very degrees of unlovable. This is because we came in from unconditional love and that is what we needed to thrive here. Because our parents never having received unconditional love them selves, were unable to give us that as young children, we emerged from childhood feeling not good enough and unlovable. This condition which holds us back from loving either ourselves, others or life itself can be healed through the inner child work developed by John Bradshaw. His book Homecoming is a classic primer for the inner child work and one I highly recommend to augment our work together. I have been teaching and working with the inner child work for 27 years nearly as long as I have been counselling. Your inner child is your subconscious self--- your emotional body. By developing a rapport with your inner child, generally around age 5 or 6, one can lovingly re-parent this part of you that was deprived of the unconditional love you experienced before you incarnated. When your adult self learns to become

Once you have established a loving and healing relationship with your inner child your life will change in ways you could never imagine. Teaching you to do this is what my work is all about. This work saved my life and it can do the same for you.

Exploring your Akashic Records with Krista Dunlop

Krista uses her psychic mediumship gifts of clairvoyance, clairsentience and claircognizance, to provide you with the unique opportunity of connecting to your Masters, Teachers and Higher Self.

The Akashic Records Demystified Part II


he records are not actual books or scrolls, although many people see them as such. The records are actually an energetic vibration. It is this energy vibration that translates into images, forms, symbols, imagery, and language that the mind can understand. When first accessing the Akashic Records, they will often closely resemble what you envision them to be. When an individual consciously opens their records, they might perceive the entire message presented at once, while others may receive bits and pieces to be put together like a puzzle. The Akashic Records exist on their own. However, there are highly elevated beings that work with and monitor the Book of Life, which is also referred to as The Akashic Records. Among these are the Lords of the Akasha, the Keepers of the Akashic Records and even an archangel that watches over all of these. All these beings are at your disposal, for assisting in accessing the records for just about any spiritual purpose. During your Akashic Records Consultation, together we will be able to connect to the heart of the meaning for your existence, of who you really are and the myriad of lifetimes you have lived. You will find answers to

Dr. Paul Greenacre, General Dentist

DrLaserPaul Greenacre Holistic Dentistry & Integrative Medicine

many things about your current lifetime. Although the records are not predictive in nature, there can be glimpses into future life possibilities. One excellent benefit of working with the Akashic Records, is self-discovery and finding out who you are and your primary essence at a fundamental level. Another interesting facet of the Akashic Records is the ability to heal through them. Every time you connect with your true essence on this spiritual plane, you begin the process of innately releasing negative feelings and views of yourself. At an even deeper level, you can bring any issues you struggle with in your life to the Guardians of the Akashic Records (also known as the Lords of the Akashic Records), to ask for guidance, a balancing of your records, and releasing of what is not for your highest good. To help expand your knowledge on the spiritual healing benefits of accessing your Akashic Records, feel to visit my web site and read the many blog articles I write on a regular basis – . In addition, feel free to drop by the Planet Botanix Wellness Clinic on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at 301 Bank Street and I will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have during my free time.

and Trust THE MARVELS OF STEM CELL PRODUCTION Patience Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol Perhaps you have heard of the marvels of stem cell research and the wonders it achieves in providing correction and enhancing the function of the body’s performance

Have you ever noticed that when you go on vacation to a sunny location that you relax and just feel good? This is the affect of light upon the body. Perhaps you have heard it said that we are light beings? It seems to me that it was a Korean scientist that proved the acupuncture meridian system of to be a network of “light tubules,” that meander through the fascia/ tissue of the body. What if I told you that a way has been discovered and patented that stimulates stem cell production of the body and it uses the heat of your body which is a portion of the light spectrum to do so, would you believe me? Well the future is here and we are all going to have to adjust our way of thinking of how we not only achieve well being, performance and improve body function but experience “youthing,” in the process. And guess what anyone can afford it. This is a quiet revolution that will dissolve old paradigms and you can not only experience it, you can be a part of it, if you want to. It’s a patented process that’s gaining momentum. It can’t be stopped and there is no competition. To deny the use of light to improve well- being would be to deny life itself. If this interests you, e-mail me at: Love and Light! Doug Henderson PhD (2), ICQBT, Ordained Minister




Today I am choosing to write about how intrinsically patience and trust work together. I don’t know about you but in the past and on occasion more recently the theme of patience has injected itself into my life. It could be that I’m in a traffic jam and want to be somewhere by a certain time or perhaps I just prefer a smooth trip when I find my patience being tested. I find myself mumbling my frustrations out loud. In that moment, if I’m lucky, I ponder about the reason I still have this popping up. The more I thought about it the idea of trust came to mind. By being upset I wasn’t trusting that the Universe always has a plan and that Its plan is not always that of my ego. Often, when I take that moment to say to myself it’s ok there’s a reason, usually instantly everything starts to flow with ease. Maybe it’s a reminder that there is “Someone/Something” bigger than I that is watching over me. I relax and trust. Doing so I am allowing the process of Consciousness to do Its thing. The more I catch myself the less it often it happens and if anything does it doesn’t affect me in an adverse way. These days I find myself becoming more curious to see why or what will come of it. Maybe I’m just learning to trust more or perhaps I’m a small part in a much bigger plan. I don’t necessarily have to know the reason why; I do know that I’m just a whole lot happier and calmer knowing something much greater is in control. Having patience and trusting Divine Consciousness is a process towards our evolvement (mine for sure) and that of life itself. The next time you find yourself impatient try to catch yourself in the moment then trust and see if you feel better. Blessings to all over the summer. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. 613-263-7925

Essentials for Yoga

I Live Blood Analysis Live Blood Analysis is the process of looking at live blood sample through the microscope in order to help the patient arrive at their optimum level of health. Through looking at indicators within the blood we can determine how well the body is handling daily stressors (such as environmental toxins, diet and lifestyle, mental/emotional stressors, medical treatments and procedures etc) and what needs to be done in order to bring the body back into balance. It is a preventative tool that is an extremely useful to bring the body back to its optimum state of functioning. Nutrition Counseling Nutrition Counseling refers to the process of understanding the unique way that each person’s body functions and works at its optimum. Various measures are then implemented in order to bring about balance and health in the patient. A number of methods are used in order to bring forth a deeper sense of health and well being including diet, lifestyle, herbs, minerals, vitamins and minerals. FAQs: LIVE CELL MICROSCOPY What is it? Around the world, the blood is known as ‘the river of life.’ That is because the blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells and carries wastes away from them. By projecting a small drop of blood from the tip of a finger on to a darkfield microscope I am able to see my clients blood ecology. What can it tell me? The human body is constantly trying to achieve homeostasis, or, simply put, balance. In conjunction with a nutritional assessment, live cell microscopy can be used to help clients work towards optimal nutritional wellness by detecting possible imbalances such as: • nutritional • hormonal • oxidativestress (free radicals) • liver stress • microbial activity • under-oxygenation • immune stress • over-active or under-active digestion The live cell microscopist then works with the client to design a nutritional and lifestyle plan that supports the body as it attempts to regain optimal balance.

have people come in quite often after a yoga class, asking what scent might have been used during the practice. There are many essential oils that can ameliorate your experience during this deeply meditative selfcare technique. One which I have heard many studios use is eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus). Eucalyptus hails from Australia and is used extensively in spa/sauna treatments to help calm and feel the effects of deep breathing. One of my personal favourites would have to be frankincense (we carry two species: Boswellia carteri and Boswellia serrata). This oil has been used in meditation for centuries in other parts of the world, and is a true gift to aromatherapy. Lavender (Lavendula officinalis) is an uplifting yet calming essential oil. This is probably one of the most useful and economical oils you will find, and is far and away our best seller. It’s like first aid in a bottle! Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Flexuosus) is a great oil to add to your practice because it is a stress-reliever and imparts a sense of overall well being. It may also help with sleep, as well as many of the oils already described. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention rose essential oil (Rosa damascena) and sandalwood (santal album) in this article. They are precious oils, reflected in their cost, but rose is the premier oil for the heart and so can help promote a sense of self-worth. Sandalwood is another ancient oil which has been used extensively for relaxation and spiritual practice. Two favourites of mine to promote a euphoric feeling are jasmine (Jasminum sambac) and neroli (Citrus aurantium), also known as orange blossom. These two have a delicate yet intense floral scent. Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) is another oil known for its uplifting aroma. It is also said to be an aphrodisiac. I’ll just leave that there. If you are looking for an energizing essential oil to invigorate your practice, look no further than peppermint )Mentha piperita). Its sharp, clear scent is sure to get you going. Spearmint (Mentha spicata) is a sweeter, gentler version of peppermint. Either could be blended with lavender or a citrus such as red grapefruit or Persian lime to create a blend for early mornings. Although I cannot describe the essential oils and all their virtues here, I invite you to come in and experience them first-hand at Planet Botanix. We have over 100 essential oils in stock. We also provide meditation and yoga twice a week to help you on your journey. ©2019 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St (Near Somerset). As well as providing the ingredients for DIY bodycare, and an artisan bodycare line, the shop provides other wellness products and a holistic clinic. 613.567.4444

Learn to Manage Your Emotional Health by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapy and Ascension Healing


our emotions can be uplifting or take you on the most painful journeys. The majority are subconscious, and can repeatedly trigger you into disproportionate reactions, keep you confused, stuck, or afraid while looping in mental anxiety, or create struggle and physical pain. Your wounded inner child is still weeping to be liberated into love! As humans, emotions uniquely belong to us, so it’s up to us to heal them and honour them for their highest purpose. Depending where you are in your spiritual growth, your emotions will serve you differently. If you’re just awakening, you’re likely now recognizing how old emotions have been directing your painful thoughts and life choices, and you want this to change. If you’re living consciously, your emotional triggers are serving as signals to pay attention to the reality you’re creating and what still needs healing. And if you’re a leader of the Light, it’s imperative to be fully free of your ego personality. There’s plenty of inner work for everyone! Consciously healing your ego not only brings greater ease, but prevents dis-ease states arising from energy stagnation. Transforming your emotions is also key to your joy and intuitive development: pain blocks your heart from opening. If your pain body is dominating your perceptions then it interferes with your higher consciousness, and you remain more susceptible to dark manipulation.

I’m offering an experiential workshop where you have the opportunity to learn a valuable framework for accessing and processing your pain through to resolution. We help you to understand your pain and manage it so that you can feel more joy. This simple and proven process has been distilled from 20 years of counselling experience. It’s the foundational path for all ego healing, and a reliable practice for bringing you to peace. PAIN to PEACE in 7 STEPS Healing Workshop details: Register now and save! 20 yrs. experience: intuitive energy education, counselling & multi-dimensional ascension healing. Appointments in person or phone/skype 613-253-2888. Healing for individuals, couples, children and animals. Free newsletter.

The mind has a limited resource of neural drive (energy) available to create a perfectly functioning body. The mind will prioritize dysfunction in organs, diverting neural drive from muscles to imbalances in organs and related meridians. Previous injuries, scars from surgery, emotional trauma and stress can all cause dysfunction. SMR corrects the root cause of dysfunction, fixing chronic symptoms indefinitely.

Are You Speeding?



By Luke Michael Howard Clinical Hypnotist ere’s another metaphor, another story. We need to relax. Potentially, that could be a cup of coffee. I’m going to share a little story today - you can use this story as a metaphor for many things. I often tell this to many of my clients who are coming for pain issues. Imagine you’ve got some kind of chronic pain. We’re not talking about acute pain. If you’ve got acute pain something just happened, e.g, you’ve been hit by a car. So, you would go to surgery immediately, wouldn’t you? I’m talking about chronic pain. Pain that’s been around three months, at least, and it isn’t getting any better. You’ve seen several medical practitioners and they’re just giving you painkillers or, don’t know quite what to do with you. Pain is just a sign. It’s a sign to simply slow down, stop doing what you’re doing and do something else. So, imagine this. You’re in your car. You’re driving down the highway at 100 km an hour in a 50-km zone. After a while, the police pull you over. They say, “Hey, you’ve been driving too fast. You’ve been driving 100

kms an hour. You’re supposed to be doing 50. We’ll let you off this time. No fine, no criminal record, but this is your warning.” So, you get back in your car, start in at 50 kms an hour. Police don’t trouble you anymore. Then you say, “You know what? I want to get home a bit faster.” So, you start to go a bit faster, 75 kms an hour, 80 kms an hour, 100 kms an hour. You don’t listen to the warning. Police pull you over again. “Hey, we just pulled you over. Why are you not listening to us? Now, we are going to have to fine you because you didn’t listen? You never learned your lesson? You haven’t slowed down. So. now you pay your fine. You say, “All right, all right.” Again, you start going 50 kms an hour in a 50-km zone. You think to yourself, “They’re not going to pull me over again, right?” You’re doing 50, now, you’re doing 55. Now, you’re doing 60, 65, 70, 80, 90, 100. Police pull you over again. You hear them say, “All right. We’re suspending your license. This is the third time we’ve had to pull you over today. You haven’t listened to us. It’s 50 kms an hour and you’ve been going 100 kms an hour in a 50-km zone. Slow down.”

“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 2019

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

So, you thought that you were going to get to your destination a lot faster because you were going faster - 100-kms-an-hour in a 50-km-an-hour zone. However, with the amount of time that the police kept pulling you over and pulling you over and pulling you over, admonishing you for breaking the law, it ends up taking you a lot longer to get where you wanted to go. If you had just listened to the warning the first time. and slowed down, and got that message, you might find that you don’t need that message anymore if you had just slowed down. Always Believe, Luke Michael Howard PhD Ottawa Clinical Hypnotist

Trust Yourself

By Yola Dunne, offering services in the Healing and Shamanic Arts @


rust is a virtue that comes from the core of life, Love, and what makes this world coexist with all of creation. You trust the sun will rise in the morning. Why? How does it feel to know that the sun will be there tomorrow even if you don’t make it through the night? There are forces much greater than us at play in this world. Trust comes from knowing that we are not meant to be in control of our lives. Control is merely an illusion. If you are subject to being forced to do something you do not want or that hurts you, please stop and take a step back. Think. Take your time. Why are you in this position? Can you change it? Can you reach a decision that will free you? Yes, you can. Sometimes we simply need to try new things and have the courage to tread in places we have not yet dared to go. Doing new things challenges our perceptions as we observe how we react to a new and unfamiliar paradigm of reality. This is why it is a good practice to travel, eat, and play on our own. The exercise doesn’t need to be extravagant. Its purpose is to get you out of your comfort zone enough to realize you can trust yourself and your decisions. Whatever the outcome, the exercise has value in that you are the only one accountable to yourself. Enjoy life. Be adventurous. Be open to new experiences. Trust comes from a deep love of the self, a knowing that you are perfectly okay as you are, and that every single choice you make empowers your earth-walk. Enjoy the Summer and may you tread on uneven ground. With Love, Yola

Quantum-Touch® Therapy: Wellness Centres

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Certified Law of Attraction Coach, Certified Facilitator: Open Space Technology, and Small Group Processes e would think of a Wellness Centre as being a place where all your wellness needs can be met, however, I’m going to suggest that a true wellness centre is a place where one modality can actually create results with all aspects of your wellness; your physical body, your emotional body, your spiritual body, and your relationship body. As I do my work, I know that my clients are feeling improvement at all levels of their beings. When someone comes to see me as the result of injuries that occurred during their training to be long distant running. I may work on those injured limbs, initially without obvious improvement to those spaces, however, following the session, in response to my question about any changes of which they are aware, and the response is that they are feeling calm and relaxed, something that they have not been feeling for several years. After the second session, where the results where similar, the third session brought amazing results to those injured areas, and the effects of the relaxation were clear, a much more relaxed athlete who was unlikely to become injured again. Another client who came to see me with a physical complaint, had similar results. The physical area improved, and in fact completely disappeared after several sessions, the vision issue gradually improved, however the most amazing shift was in the emotional and comfort level in their own bodies. I love the work I do, and the levels of healing that can occur as I place my hands upon the body of my

Mouth Medicine


ir William Osler once said, “The Mouth is the Mirror of all Disease.” He taught in three countries and helped found Sir John Hopkins Hospital. This physician would agree that a healthy mouth leads to a healthy life. If you have gum diseases or gums that bleed when you brush or floss, you should get that treated to stop the inflammation and its causes. Bleeding gums mean that microbes from the mouth are entering your blood stream and most probably your lymphatic system as well. Recent research says that mouth bacteria are involved in Alzheimer’s as well. The implied mouth bacteria connection with heart disease goes back almost 70 years. Further, if you are pregnant, those bugs are also invading your placenta and affecting the birth outcome negatively. All this information is new in the last number of years. Further, researcher, Yipping Han in New York, suggests that the cause of gut cancers, i.e. bowel cancers or pancreatic cancers, comes from the influence of bad microbes swallowed daily by people who have bleeding gums or gum diseases. Today two California companies have developed two different lasers to combat gum diseases in a newer more humane and gentle manner - Periolase and Waterlase used together can safely and quickly stop, and reverse gum diseases – a blessing for the patients. Previously, gum disease surgery was criticized and compared to being the oral equivalent to circumcision, using surgical or scalpel methods. I was trained to do gum surgery that way. The laser method is much more clinically humane with tissue conservation. Over 10 years ago, I called my periodontal teaching expert Dr. Raymond Yukna to ask for updates in his periodontal teaching. He said, “Well, I no longer use a scalpel. I now use a Periolase laser for all my cases. Further, he said he was treating almost all elective medical procedures with his new gum disease protocol in collaboration with the medical department at the University of Colorado Medical school. This seemed like a really smart example of preventive and integrative medicine. Cooperation between the dental department and the surgical care facilities makes a lot of sense. Stopping gum disease reduces the free bacteria circulating in the blood stream and improves the chances of a good recovery after surgery. So, I went to the U of C Periodontal department, took his course and other courses on lasers and gum disease that changed my life as a dentist and changed my patients’ lives as well. Healing after surgery is always enhanced by super nutrition lifestyle strategies. It is wise to study the recent books published by Drs Steven Gundry, Robert Thompson, Michael Gregor, Joseph Mercola and David Brownstein. These and other MDs have finally brought the world of nutrition into the world of modern medicine. It was about time!

Dolphin Dentistry Oral Health is Now Essential for Total Health Call for a free consultation 613 234-5758 Further, new self-help techniques like EFT- Emotional Freedom Training,as taught locally by experts like Ottawa’s David Gilbert (613 747 5458), help patients break bad lifestyle habits and adopt newer healthier habits. I suggest everyone learn to brush well with either baking soda or coconut oil. If you have crowded teeth, buy a sulcabrush to clean better. Other safe healthy mouthwashes are green tea or aloe vera juice. Also, learn to floss and use a Water Pik. New research in the field of bad bites, orthodontic problems, or snoring has shown us that if you have a bad bite and a bad jaw joint function because of this, then your trigeminal nerves, your largest cranial nerves, emit a noxious neuropeptide called Substance P. Substance P can cause inflammation, which is just as bad as gum disease causing inflammation. If any of these apply to you, get it corrected after you get your bleeding gums fixed up. Hopefully these little tips on Mouth Medicine can help you have a longer healthier life. A healthy mouth helps create and protect your Micro biome or your gut health. Next time, I will write more on Microbiome Medicine and Metabolic Medicine. We need all three to be healthy if we want to have a healthy long life. Dr Paul Greenacre,

The Trinity Table T

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

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

What’s Love Got To Do With It! Jean Callaway


was in a session with a male client very recently. An awakened man committed to heal his wounds, embody and express the truth of who he is, reclaim his powers and assist others in their quest for wellness. He first came to see me several years ago. In his hand were several prescription medication bottles; an antidepressant, an anti-anxiety drug, and a prescription drug to help him sleep. He also carried with him allopathic labels of depression, anxiety and sleep disorder. It was understandable that he was not feeling on top of the world. He and his beautiful wife had been through something most will never experience. The death of their twin infant daughters. Having been there done that myself with many allopathic labels and a large ziplock bag filled with prescription medication bottles I felt confident that I could guide him to heal and reclaim the truth of who he is naturally without the use of prescription medication. Committed to his personal healing journey he never took the drugs. Fast forward to very recently, as he was amidst a deep emotional release he connected with his heart and out of his mouth came the words “I Love You” My response “I Love you too” I then explained to him that the LOVE we feel is actually who we are and we are sharing this LOVE that we are with others. And it’s okay. In a society that often defines LOVE as something obtained outside of ourselves and riddled with rules the whole concept of LOVE can be confusing. We confuse love with neediness, physical and sexual attraction, pity, the need to save or be saved. And it comes with disempowering belief structures such as “LOVE HURTS” which bombard our very being. The words to a song by Dionne Warwick” What do you get when you fall in love? You only get lies and pain and sorrow” cross my mind.

Jenni Tipper, MSW Integral Master Coach (613) 858-2799

What a bill of goods we have all been sold. The real truth is LOVE is who we are! To varying degrees, we have all experienced hurt which we bury deep within our hearts. The willingness to truly heal this hurt the greater our ability to love, honour and respect ourselves and all of life deeply. What I can say without a shadow of a doubt is that it is worth every ounce of pain to reclaim and embody the LOVE that we are. This is true healing. Finding love from yourself for yourself is the most precious gift. Worth spending a life time finding.

f you are considering bringing a wind of change into your life, the first thing you need is a big WHY. The WHY has to be big enough for you to stay focused when the ride gets bumpy... and it will, so be prepared! Then, you have to find a way to quiet your mind. Since your mind is extremely skilled at keeping you in an eternal state of homeostasis, if you attempt to make any significant changes, be ready to get an earful from Ms./Mr. Smarty-Pants-Know-It-All! You know that annoying voice who keeps reminding you that you are not good enough or that you will never amount to anything?! This voice is there to protect you by keeping you safely anchored to your same old patterns. What is known is safe. It doesn’t have to be comfortable, enjoyable or fun... as long as you are safely tucked in your routine, all is well. That is why change is so difficult. That is also why we watch too much TV, work at a job that we hate, or stay in a dead-end relationship. We accept status quo in an attempt to occupy time, and avoid the surplus of energy that would be required to change an undesirable situation. We fear the pain that change could cause us... and others. For your mind, change is scary. So it will jangle all sort of yummy and fun things right in front of you to divert you from your plan, or will generate crapy feelings to make you crawl under the cover. If you don’t have a great support system in those times of change, the odds are that you will stop before you reach your goal. If you want to make changes in your life, express how you feel either to a trustworthy friend or a diary. Know that no wishes or hopes will ever fix the problem. Find an accountability partner or hire a coach who will help you identify the necessary steps to reach your goal, and will be there - with you - on the road to transformation. Change can be uncomfortable and overwhelming, but in the end, it is so worth it!

Sitting in Silence



e live in a society where things are moving at a high rate of speed. This is forcing us into this vortex of frenetic activity which is causing us grief and consternation. Our lives feel unbalanced as we try to juggle all the commitments that are forced upon us from our work, from our family and from our society. I’m sure that on many days you feel like you are spinning out of control as these pressures keep mounting and mounting. This makes us feel emotionally and physically exhausted, forcing us to compromise our own health in order to “keep it all together”. This is not how it was meant to be. There is no law that says you need to be the Super Mom or the Super Dad. Ditto for being the Super Employee or the Super Friend. Yes, there are obligations that are forced upon us and we need to respond to these in the appropriate way. But at what price? Do we need to compromise

our health for this? Do we need to compromise our relationships for this? The short answer is no. It is getting increasingly important for all of us to find the time for Self-Care so that we can get back to that happy state of balance. Listen to your body. Listen to your feelings. Both are calling out for you to make the time to look after “ME”. Go sit in silence in your backyard with a cup of coffee. Go for a walk along a quiet path (without music playing in your ears) and truly listen to nature. The more you do your favorite activity, the more you will start feeling better on all levels.

Enlightenment Journey Part 2 Channelled by Lisa Virtue

In town through July 10


hat has you bent out of shape? Would you consider relaxing your grip on it? Would you consider, even for a moment, an idea? This idea is one of revolution. Revolution within you. The idea is this: What if all you believed was up to you to keep or discard? What if you had it within your very being to discard old notions that have served their purpose? If you begin with choosing an idea of your own which brings feelings of discomfort, fear or aloneness, and decide that it has no real merit. That the information or understanding it was based on no longer needs to be held as true for you. That it may be transformed at your own will. How do you feel you would shift your perspective? What if we told you the idea of separation from Source was only a flimsy idea at best? You may very well feel a bucking of the ego, or mind, as it holds on to all it’s known and how it frames the universe, and its rules it created for it. This, of course, is very natural. What we suggest, is to see yourself in a new way. To decide that enlightenment is more of an easy journey. That your path you are on is bound to get you there. You need not worry or fret your time away with this fear of never being in that state of enlightenment. What you can do is to move your life, your ideas, the things you choose to hold as valuable, and right. You may adjust those. You may keep adjusting them as you go along the way. As you do so, things become easier in many regards. Of course, you are designed by nature to focus yourself toward that which then reveals itself as no longer feeing good. Then you adjust again, and again.

How is this enlightenment? It is the dial by which you slowly, over time, move more and more in to synch with that which you seek. A sudden, crashing moment of ascension is best left to movies and stories. More attainable and within the reach of all, is the notion of adjusting your personal radio dial across the spectrum until you get to the chosen station. You have been, and always are adjusting your dial. We recommend, as you have chosen the seekers path, to decide that all the work you have been doing, all the classes, workshops, sessions and journeys of all kinds, have been moving you towards this ultimate acceptance. The acceptance of divine nature. Let your approach be like a beautiful walk. The journey has interesting scenes along the way, yet you approach closer to your destination. You feel it growing closer. This has been felt by many of you who then find yourselves in frustration. Instead, acknowledge it means you have come a long way and the way forward is much shorter than that behind you. Know you will get there. Let it emerge. One day you will softly walk right in to that spot, without fanfare and drama. You simply become. It is ready, as it has always been. It is simply the ever present self, awaiting your own revelation to it. Your recognition. Release the expectation of how it is to occur for you. Follow your own guidance, as the way lies before you. With deep regard and eternal blessings, The Divine Which Resides Within. Lisa Virtue offers both transformation and channelling sessions in person and via phone or internet. She will be in Ottawa through July 10. Contact her to arrange an appointment: Listen to Lisa’s radio show SPIRIT SPEAKS live every second Wednesday at 1pm EDT on www.

path of inquiry is a path of challenge and adventure always leading us into the unknown. Such is the fullness of “theThe Red Essence that it arises in many flavors to support the openness of our inquiry: strength, energy, expansion, and the capacities to discriminate and confront our experience as we discover what is true. When this fullness of flavors f ills our heart, it gives us the courage to welcome whatever the adventure of life brings us. - A.H. Almaas

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition:

Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal Do you seek harmony, health and community in your life? Wishing to experience a deeper relationship with nature and unseen realms? Are you called to a path of healing service? “The PMT apprenticeship has changed who I am to the core and given me the ability to navigate life with grace and purpose. Connecting to this lineage has healed parts of me that were disconnected or broken. It has given me words for truths that I have always instinctively KNOWN, and given me a community of family that understands the world in the same way. My path of service is clear and I feel empowered to follow it with joy, wisdom and support.” ~ Alaina H., Sebastopol, CA

This Apprenticeship has been carefully crafted to offer people from all walks of life a heartfelt initiation into the healing power and earth honoring ceremonial artistry of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT), as originated by world-renowned kamasqa curandero don Oscar Miro-Quesada. Inspired by the living soul which sustains the various ancient traditions of Peruvian Curanderismo, the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition maintains contemporary relevance in its dedication to compassionate personal and planetary transformation. Sanctioned by the PMT Lineage and by don Oscar, curandera and stellar teacher YOLA DUNNE is offering the PMT Apprenticeship in Chelsea, Québec with two alternative opportunities to attend Part One, The Call to Heal (see below). As a PMT sanctioned teacher, Yola draws on over 30 years of practice and experience in the healing arts. Her path began in 1993 in the Dür Bön Tradition, a pre-Buddhist shamanic tradition of Tibet where she assisted in many ceremonies. These profound experiences paved the way for her service as auxilia (ceremonial assistant) to don Oscar, and her deep apprenticeship in the living lineage of the PMT. Yola serves her community with a thriving private healing practice, ceremonial offerings, and workshops.
