Bringing Grief out of the Shadows…

Grief – Finding Peace By Vonne Solís, Angel Therapy Practitioner®


fter devastating loss, it is very likely and most probable that most grievers will lose all hope of finding peace again. Glimpses of joy and happiness (most certainly the main ingredients one must feel to live peacefully) may come and go; but to maintain everlasting peace, one must come to a complete and final acceptance of the circumstances in which he or she finds him or herself. It really is that simple. Rather like accepting one’s fate (and that’s a whole other stream of articles), the death of a loved one cannot be reversed and the circumstances leading up to that event cannot be changed. There is no right or wrong, nothing more you could have done or influenced pre-death. In all cases (and this is my view), every death occurs exactly in the moment and manner intended by the individual passing. This truth rooted firmly in the metaphysical, is one that in the physical we as humans find the most difficult to bear. With the mounds of guilt, remorse, doubt and anger we heap upon ourselves after losing a loved one, especially tragically, it is a wonder any of us could ever come to understand this truth to any degree. It can take years for a seasoned faithful to forgive, accept and be willing to move forward in joy to find the peace we all so richly deserve. Yet, it is necessary that we find forgiveness in our hearts, and significantly for ourselves for all that we cannot control, to trigger the heart’s healing, which then with certainty will lead us to the path of peace. And while this path requires us to make life changes to embrace who we are becoming after loss, some that are downright scary, the more we accept the inevitable (we can’t go back and do things differently), the easier it becomes to map out a future. All losses are painful and represent change in some way. With the loss of any family member, we have to learn to act differently given our role has naturally altered. Whether from parent, sibling, child or multiple losses, the type of death and severity of pain any death has had on us will impact the type and degree of change we ultimately choose to experience.


The path to peace comes to those of us bereaved through the hope we can rekindle to carry on; the courage we must summon to seize all opportunities we discover; the vision we must endeavour to sustain to feel inspired to move ahead, no matter how many times we have to get up and start again; the care for ourselves and others we must remain mindful not to abandon, the faith in ourselves that our choices are correct, and the trust we can regain by allowing our vulnerabilities to show. It’s okay to hurt and express our needs. When we no longer resist what is, peace will find us. Quiet introspection and if you are so inclined, communing with the angels and/or other higher beings (including loved ones departed) will guide you to know the difference between resistance and true acceptance. To find peace, be willing to expand your thinking, change your mind, think outside the box, seek the wisdom of others, be decisive, flexible and true to your heart.

Drug Resistant Microbes Are Already Here



Hesitate No More

rug resistant bacteria, moulds, viruses and parasites are already in the general population. A larger percentage than I had expected of my patients either harbor them or have been exposed to them. Most Clostridia strains for example, are beneficial to the gut but seven, including Clostridia Difficile are not. This is the bug we usually hear about when they lock down hospital wards or nursing homes. ‘C. Diff’ is in the general population. Hospitals can be reservoirs of drug resistant microbes. There are several drug resistant strains of the enterococcus bacteria which can even cause postoperative infections. I asked Dr. Shaw, Director of the ‘GPL’ laboratory why so many people are already carriers? ”Being a spore former, C. Difficile’s spores can become aerosolized when toilets are flushed. They land everywhere” was his answer. Marketplace, CBC’s investigative show found antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” including C. difficile and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on TV remotes, light switches, bedspreads and drinking glasses in hotel rooms across the country.

What to do to protect yourself? Always employ safe hand washing practices: lather your hands with soap and wash, rubbing hand to forearm for 20+ seconds. Rinse under running water. Turn off taps with a paper towel or with your elbow, as surgeons do. When we scrub for operations we use our elbows to shut taps off. I always use paper towels to close taps and to open doors on my way out of public washrooms. Why? Ever observe how poorly people wash their hands after using the toilet? Some never wash and just exit after they

Few use paper towels to close taps or open washroom doors that others have handled with sullied hands. Good hand washing hygiene is protection. Hand gel is no substitute for proper hand washing. Use gels after a proper hand washing. We boost hand gels in my clinic by adding in extra 70% isopropyl alcohol. Whereas NAET treatments are great for treating allergies, they are even more impressive in boosting one’s ability to fight infection. We regularly treat people for bacterial, viral, parasitic and yeast infections at the NAET Clinics Ottawa and Outaouais. In addition to NAET, we use superlative homotoxicology and herbal preparations either to kill microbes and/or to boost the body’s ability to kill them themselves. We have had exciting results treating people infected with drug resistant microbes by using these modalities. I even developed a testing and treatment panel for drug resistant microbes which has shown much promise in treating infected patients. We also have this year’s flu bug vials that energetically boost your body’s ability either to stave off or to fight infection. This is Energy Medicine at its best. This year’s flu bug can take a full week to pass. Kids may vomit but teens and adults tend to feel just a bit ‘off’ and may experience waves of nausea. If you catch a cold or flu, reach not only for Echinacea but also for strong immune boosters like Pascoleucyn by Pascoe. We take Pascoleucyn when we are exposed to particularly invasive microbes because we need to maintain strong immune systems against exposures from patients who see us to treat infection. After drinking a vial of Pascoleucyn we can feel

our bodies fighting off pathogens within minutes. As well, give your body the tools it needs to make Natural Killer (NK) cells like Vitamin C, omega 3-6-9 and take multivitamins. Targeted probiotics help when exposed to the flu. We use Culturelle (in the Bowel Health section of pharmacies) which is an excellent ally in killing pathogenic invaders. Flora also sells top-of-the-line probiotics. Of course, when fighting a flu or a cold, stay home for the first couple of days. This is when you are most contagious. If you absolutely must go to work, be considerate and wear a mask. People will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Drink plenty of fluids to flush out their toxins. Sleep lots to allow your body to fight the good fight. Allow fevers. Fevers tell your body to make Natural Killer (NK) cells. If you turn off the heat, you’re telling your body that the infection is no more. It stops waging war and things can get worse. If OTC’s are a must, ibuprophen is better than acetaminophen, which can affect the health of pregnant women, children and others at risk. home/eng/Acetaminophen.asp Wishing TONE magazine’s readers a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

Wholistic Healing Re-Treats


constantly strive to be at the leading edge in the fields that I practice (counselling, coaching and hypnotherapy) and one of the ways that I do this is to take seminars and experiential workshops at wholistic learning, healing and re-treat centres in Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Over the years, I have stayed at about two dozen such wonderful places from Hawaii to Greece. In this article I will describe five of the intentional healing communities that I have stayed at four times or more. They have all been running successfully for over 30 years. I will continue to return to all of these many more times. Here are the websites for all five. Enjoy doing a virtual tour of them:


e. The Hollyhock Lifelong Learning Centre is located on Cortes Island, British Columbia, in the archipelago near Campbell River. It is now 30 years old. The views out into the Straits of Georgia are s s magnificent. There are community llnes we residences and picturesque cabins smokin along the beach. Hollyhock offers frui many workshops and seminars both on Cortes Island and in Vancouver. xie ty They focus on Spirituality, self -esteem environmental issues, community t development, leadership training weigh and personal growth. Hollyhock is an ideal place to go for a personal or COUNSELLING, COACHING & HYPNOTHERAPY CENTRE Spiritual re-treat far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Richard M. Haney Bon Voyage!

g tion


The Findhorn Spiritual Community, Learning Centre and Eco-village has several sites in the countryside of northern Scotland. It is now 50 years old and has hundreds of residents. All of the administration and chores are collaboratively allotted and done in rotation, and shared equally, by all the residents, visitors and folks on re-treat. All of the locations are maintained in a totally green and sustainable manner. Findhorn aims to be a prototype eco-model for many other ecovillages around the globe. The folks at Findhorn continually “attune” to a very high Spiritual frequency. “Attunement circles” spontaneously occur each day.

d. The Esalen Re-Treat Centre and Educational Institute is located at Big Sur, on the rocky Pacific coast near Carmel, California. It is now 50 years old. Many of the greatest minds in Spiritual teaching, psychology, literature and the arts live or have lived and taught at Esalen. The Beatles performed concerts there early in their career. Esalen has four hot tubs built right out on the Pacific. The vegetarian/vegan food there is superb.

The vegetarian/vegan meals at Omega are wholesome and delicious. My experience at Omega is that, if there is something you need to learn, you will walk right into it at Omega.

Unleash the Power Within Through Hypnosis “Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness… the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


ooking out my window on this early December, I can admire the snow-covered trees, fences and houses that surround me. Since the snow is already melting, I can a­lso notice little droplets of water, suspended on a branch, and flakes of snow falling. It is truly majestic, and if we look closer, it just may appear magical. The universe that surrounds us remains a mystery, in its smallest manifestation to the grandiose dimension of space above. If we look very closely we can connect with what can truly fulfill us – loving. Loving the people in our life, the lessons they

teach us and how they inspire us just by being in our lives. A choice we have the power to make daily. Watching the environmental catastrophe in the Philippines on TV, hearing from the locals and their stories, like many, made one of my clients deeply depressed. She told me that she did donate as much as she could, but still feels saddened and helpless. We talked about understanding that on some level we are limited in our ability to reach out and help, but we do have the power to do good, here and now. She told me that in a way she needed now to give herself the permission to be happy again. Talking together was good and she connected with a profound truth: each one of us has tremendous power within. We can shine, love, and forgive. We can shift our perspectives. But how to do this, and how to make it last? Deep within our subconscious mind lies a power that far surpasses our wildest expectations. Accessing the power of your subconscious mind, where your wisdom lies, is core to hypnosis. For example, we may understand from the superficial mind that we are

blowing things out of proportion, but it is only through empowering your deeper mind or subconscious mind that you can shift your perspective. In my experience, the shifts last or can readily be accessed again. We can simplify for our purpose here the functioning of the subconscious mind in that it serves two vital functions. First, your subconscious mind has memory of what has transpired in your life. If you need information from the past, your subconscious mind can be worked with to present it to you. Hypnosis uses positive regression techniques to heal and explore the past. Second, your subconscious mind can work for you and be very obedient. You can purposefully direct your subconscious mind’s creations by carefully ensuring that your thoughts are consistent with what you want in your life. It is in strengthening this response that hypnosis proves so effective. When one is open minded, hypnosis works deeply to create success in your life.

Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind to create success – incredibly dramatic success at times! I have been doing hypnosis for years now and have nothing, but a growing appreciation for hypnosis as a powerful tool for change. It is gentle, relaxing and focused clearly on your objectives to make them manifest. Truly, hypnosis makes things so much easier! Lynne Cardinal is a fully Certified Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss. She is certified by Dr. Weiss in Past-Life Regression Therapy and she has a PhD in Eastern Philosophy. In person and Skype sessions are available to clients.

Who Do You Think You Are? by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine Heart to Awaken the Deep Truth Within


hese days everything around us and within us can feel intense. You may find yourself asking, “Where is all this change taking us?” It’s understandable. However, it’s the ego-victim that asks a question like this: its reference point is external. Perhaps a more powerful question is, “Where am I taking the world?” We all learned to look externally for answers. Whether a child learns a true, healthy sense of self depends on whether his/her parents validated their feelings and choices, or overrode them with parental control. Often it was easier for the caregiver to be authoritarian, if they themselves did not learn how to validate their own feelings and value. So, like many, you may have learned to keep looking to others before looking to yourself. Based on my experience, it’s still very common because we have forgotten who we are. The continued need for external validation is rooted in feelings of inferiority. Inferior self-perceptions manifest in many different core beliefs: I am wrong, inadequate, bad, unworthy, unlovable, etc. Only the inferior ego needs to play the game of seeking assurances from someone it deems superior and more valuable. Anything that makes this victim feel better about itself will suffice, such as seeking approval for its accomplishments, or enjoying being right. When strategies like these are frequently engaged, you perpetuate external dependency, and deny the development of your inner strength. The inner ego-tyrant is one aspect of the lower self that will perpetuate the negative, inferiority messages, creating self-doubt. Try to step into your truth and it might scornfully ask, “Who do you think you are?” Do you act as the tyrant with yourself? These are some are some characteristic victimizer behaviours: controlling, degrading, authoritarian, unjust, critical, pushy, narcissistic, blaming, exploitive. Nobody really likes to acknowledge that they feel inferior or that they have an enemy tyrant within. So this fragile self often hides in your shadow, unacknowledged, unconsciously dictating your self-perception and consequently your behaviours. Sometimes, so much so, that you can use such an archetype as your identity. When left unhealed, you not only reinforce your own diminishment, but can project your shame onto others, trying to diminish their sense of Self. If you’re triggered, you may unconsciously move into a controlling, manipulative, tyrannical behaviour, as your inner tyrant tries to rebalance the perceived inequality between your own inferiority and another’s superiority.

Gratefully, we are beginning to bring an end to the long-standing, mind-controlling tyrant archetype on this planet, so it’s more visible now. Of course, global change begins within, and this is an opportune time to face and release your inner tyrant. The services I offer make this very possible. Self-validation is “knowing your own Self as God”. This says everything! Once you know that you are GodSource, nothing external holds more or less value than you. The ego-fears and games become obsolete. The focus of reference is within. A significant part of healing, inner work is cultivating self-validation as you come to remember who you are. As we meet chaotic phases in our evolution, many people will still look outside themselves for reassurances and rescues. Hold compassion for yourself, and others. Listening within and relying on your own inner, core Spirit is now a necessity. Only your God-Self can anchor you in security, as the calm centre in the storm. Without this, you are tossed around unpredictably with all the other whirling debris. Your God-Self is your reliable wisdom: it sees the higher path for your life. Nurture this trust now – not tomorrow nor next month. You cannot hope that the miraculous answers will appear from ‘out there’. You are your own leader, if you choose to be. To be a leader requires you to face change and take chances. Only your Spirit will guide you, and us, gracefully. FREE newsletter – timely articles, tools and inspiration.

Inner Child Work is Not for Sissies Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW


his may sound harsh, but I have realized that not everyone has the courage and commitment to their ultimate healing to do the inner child work. It can be challenging at the beginning. After all, you are opening up a relationship with a hurt, angry and frightened child within that has felt lost and abandoned for a long time. All of a sudden grown-up- you comes along wanting to find how you can love and support this inner child to grow up to feel safe, loved, and worthy. Not an easy task, but definitely doable and very worth the difficulty and resistance you may face at the beginning. Once your little person decides, even reluctantly, to let you in, the healing begins. At first it can be physically painful as you are now connecting with the pain the child has been carrying for a very long time. Usually we start connecting with the child around age 5 or 6. At that age, the child is able to communicate telling you what is felt, what is thought, how he/she is acting and why and what you can do to help. Generally your little being just wants to talk, to tell someone who cares how hard it has been and how very frightened they are. You job is to love and support, encouraging them to share what has happened and how they have felt. Above all, they need respect and encouragement to connect with you, the inner loving parent, and to feel safe to share their feelings. It can be a bit scary at the first when adult connects with the pain of your child within. With encouragement and support, wise and loving words. the child begins to release the pent up pain, anger and fear. You will feel it moving through, but it will not stay with you. You are grateful the child is releasing it in a healing connection with you and it is not spewing out, lashing out in ways that are destructive to your adult life. As you become to understand your little person more and more you will understand where the fear, rage and sorrow you have been experiencing comes from. As you work with your inner child, your world will change, relationships of every kind will open up and blossom in ways you could never expect. Most of all your relationship with yourself will become more open with vastly increased understanding of your feelings, where they originate and what they are seking from you. As I said, the inner child work is not for sissies; the beginning is difficult. Working through the resistance of the inner child to trust you, feeling the pain, fear or anger of the child can be tough, but I guarantee you this work will change your life. Your relationship to your self can become clear as you see the conditioning you took on in your childhood. As soon as you could comprehend that you were a separate being from you mother you began to manipulate for love and valiation. By the age of 8 most of us have created our life scripts, internalizing how we relate to the world, what it looks

We have the key to open the door for that to happen. Picking up that key and opening the door to the hidden world of your inner child takes courage, but if you persevere you will be rewarded beyond imagination. As the child heals, the games, the unexpected emotional outpourings of grief and rage, and the manipulation of others for love and security will stop. As you and your inner child heal, you will experience an inner strength and self-awareness you never knew possible. And from this place, life just gets better and better.

Happy New Year Everyone


would like to send a warm thanks to all who have encouraged my work, supported me in all I do. Thanks for attending my workshops, for all your great testimonials, and following me on Facebook/Twitter/ YouTube. It has been fun to hear all your feedback and get to be part of your lives. Tell me, what are your feelings about what 2014 has in store for us? 2013 was a tough year for many but I am pleased to say 2014 will be easier. It will be a healing year and time of letting go of past issues with a feeling of compassion and grace. We have just entered the 14th year of a 100 year energy cycle called the Awakening and as well as it being the 14th year into the rise of the Feminine Energies on Earth. This will be a very spiritual year, with lots of Angel activity being reported. For many it will be a spontaneous event. Suddenly they will begin to hear guidance more clearly or have a feeling that is more pronounced of just knowing what to do. Many will be drawn to living a more spiritual or holistic life, especially men. Men will begin to feel a bit softer

The Angels will be watching over you and you will hear them and feel their presence very clearly. Wait and be patient‌ the angels have heard your request and work is going on behind the scenes.

There now will be a pronounced increase in psychic, telepathic, and healing abilities. Changes and transformation in this year. However, it is not a year to charge forward in big grand plans but a time of just flowing and going along with the guidance that life is giving you. It is a time of preparations for the coming difficulties of 2015 and 2016 when there will be significant upheaval in the world. If you flow with this year and listen, you will be in good hands. You could say this year is the calm before the storm. Balance within and moderation are the keywords for 2014. As well we will see a blending together and a working together of global organizations that once were not together, coming together to work in unison for world causes. There is a blending of energies, transformation, and change on a global scale. Many of us will feel a change occur within us, a balancing, and softness coming forward and we will have a clearer ideal of what we

Developing Self-Awareness


hy is self-awareness important? Seeing yourself as you truly are is absolutely crucial to personal growth. Once you can see the truth, you can more fully develop your natural talents and use your natural passions to find greater success and fulfillment. As Lao Tzu says, “Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.” Why Self-Awareness is Difficult It’s so much easier to find fault with others and point out exactly what they’re doing wrong, but finding fault with your own self can be extremely challenging. Instead of admitting your mistakes, it’s tempting to try and escape by making excuses and justifying your actions. Or you may just ignore these errors by distracting yourself with pleasurable activities or doing something good for someone to feel better about yourself. Alternatively, you might depend on recognition and admiration from others in order to mask your faults. By doing do, your mind learns to motivate you by external praise rather than by the greater rewards inherent in living a lifestyle in congruence with your values and natural abilities. Even though it might be a wee bit challenging to find out the truth, discovering yourself can help you determine self-defeating behaviors like these so you can move toward behaviors that help you. Be Aware of Your Motivations Knowing your motives may not always be easy, but it’s essential if you want to become self-aware. When you say something to someone, ask yourself why you said it. Even better, ask this question before you say it. For instance, if a couple of your friends are discussing their fear of flying, you might be tempted to barge in and tell them how you adore flying. But before you speak, ask yourself why you want to say it. Is it because you feel superior to them? If you go ahead and blurt it out, you’ll likely find that it creates some amount of tension in your friends. Maybe they resent you for being better off than them. They just might play the game of win and lose with you and bring up something you’re afraid of. Without self-reflection, all sorts of vicious cycles can be perpetuated. This is just one example. I’m sure you can think of many others! Be Aware of Your Intentions On a slightly different note than knowing your motivations, it’s also important to know your intentions. Your objectives can set off a chain of events, negative or positive, depending on what your aim is. For example, let’s look at Sarah. Sarah’s secret intention is to hook a wealthy boyfriend. She doesn’t


really care about his personality or what he looks like. But because the intention goes against her essential self, she is likely to invite disastrous results. Maybe the man she attracts is also looking for some way to gain from the relationship, regardless of the cost to Sarah. In the end, there can only be a parting of ways because neither intention took the other person into account or what they truly needed for happiness to thrive. In becoming self aware, you can delve into your intentions and modify them as you wish. Recognize Your Patterns We all operate in life on certain patterns, which we have created from our past experiences. We keep acting in the same ways, often without realizing it. With selfawareness, you can recognize your patterns, keep the ones that help you, and then form new patterns that better contribute to your goals. For instance, a lonely person might try and overcome her loneliness by attracting attention. She could be arrogant and flamboyant and bossy. But her behavior will create the opposite effect: instead of being recognized and loved, she may end up being shunned and scorned. When you recognize these internal programs, though, you can see which ones no longer serve you. Then you can take steps toward changing them. When you use these guidelines, you’ll have started on a path of self-awareness that can bring you great fulfillment throughout your life. As you uncover new behaviors and patterns, you’ll be able to ask yourself if they’re what you really want. Through selfawareness, you can have the life you always wanted.

New Knowledge For A New Year


t’s traditional to make New Year resolutions, usually resolving to do something like lose weight or stop smoking. This year, why not decide once and for all to learn something about family law, especially the law around separation and divorce? Even after working as a mediator in the family law field for almost 35 years I am still surprised at the amount of false family law information out there. Whether this is due to watching American TV shows, or simply listening to a friend describe (inaccurately) what happened to someone they know who separated, there seems to be an abundance of inaccurate information floating around. If knowledge is power, then there are a lot of powerless people dealing with separation and divorce in Ottawa. In the spirit of the season, I will be hosting a FREE two - hour family law seminar at the end of January when I will be talking about the law of Ontario as it relates to separation and divorce. Some of the topics I will be covering include: • parenting issues after separation • is joint custody always best for children? • dividing up assets and debts • special treatment of the matrimonial home • how pensions get divided upon separation • the effect of gifts and inheritances • spousal support (how much? and how long?) • is the law different for common - law couples? • child support • separation agreements • marriage contracts • cohabitation agreements • getting a divorce • mediation as a process to reach a Separation Agreement This seminar is for anyone interested in knowing more about family law, but it may be of particular interest to two groups of people: 1. Couples who are thinking of separating. This is a time when many couples feel most vulnerable to fears and anxieties around their children and their financial arrangements. I have found that even a little accurate knowledge goes a long way towards easing these fears. 2. Mental health professionals who work with separating individuals. Knowledge of the basics of the laws that deal with separation and divorce may be useful in understanding patients’ concerns.

• 34 years’ experience as family lawyer-mediator • Mediation of Separation Agreements, Marriage Contracts and Cohabitation Agreements • Evening and weekend appointments available • Sliding fee scale • Free initial consultation Evita M. Roche 33 Somerset Street West, Ottawa, ON K2P 0H3 email:

613.237.7335 I will provide useful handouts to all registrants. I will also leave ample time for a Q & A session at the end, and I won’t leave until everyone has had their questions answered! At the time of writing this article in December I have yet to lock in the specific date and location for this seminar. But it will be in the downtown Ottawa area sometime during the week of January 27. If you are interested in attending, please send me an email and I will keep you posted as soon as these final details are confirmed. Better knowledge of family law? Now that’s a resolution to keep! Happy New Year, everyone. Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyermediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa law school, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

Think Outside the Box

Reflexology for Colds/Flu By Kymberli Ker, Canadian Registered Reflexology Therapist, Owner of Salt Puddle Alternative Healing Therapy & Yoga


ummer has left and Fall has arrived. The leaves are slowly changing colors and our nature to turn towards hibernation is fast approaching. With the colder weather, our bodies are starting to get into the rhythm of warmer clothing and comforting foods. Our kids are back in school, exposing us to the risk of catching a cold or possibly worse, the FLU. For many of us, our first approach to the cold/flu is to reach for pharmaceutical drugs to alleviate the symptoms, rather than looking towards a natural alternative solution. When one does get sick with the cold/flu, we know to take rest, drink lots of fluids and eat tons of garlic. But what other approaches can we look to? Think outside the traditional fixes and give Reflexology a try. It’s a highly effective way to help reduce or eliminate your symptoms and most importantly to boost your immune system, helping to prevent sickness in the first place. So are you wondering what symptoms you can alleviate with a treatment? Below are just a few. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Reduce sinus pressure Clear mucus from the sinuses, chest and lungs Reduce headaches/migraines Eliminate fatigue and body aches Strengthen immune system, allowing your body to recover faster.

So next time the cold/flu hits you, see a Reflexologist first before reaching for that bottle of Tylenol. Your body and mind will thank you for it. I have been working as a Registered Reflexology Therapist since 2012 and am affiliated with the Reflexology Association of Canada. I own my own business, Salt Puddle Alternative Healing Therapy & Yoga. I offer treatments at Planet Botanix in downtown Ottawa and at Salt Puddle located in Stittsville. Receipts are available to those who have coverage under their health insurance plan. Visit Salt Puddle Alternative Healing Therapy’s website at for more information on the benefits of Reflexology and to book your appointment.

Crystal of the Month Rose Quartz


feel guided to write about Love as we start this New Year. Quite some years ago I realized that I wasn’t very good at it – not good at it at all! Believe it or not, this realization gave me a great sense of freedom; I understood that it was okay to not know how to love well. I realized that was why I was here -- to learn about Love. Of course this is the nature of everyone’s Earthly incarnation but many of us have forgotten. In the materialist whirl of third-dimensional life, many lose sight of it altogether. Great avatars have visited Earth to remind us. Christ’s one great teaching was that we love each other unconditionally. It’s my understanding that is all he ever asked of humanity – just this one thing. It is also well documented that at the moment of death, the only thing that matters to us is that we are loved and that we have loved well. Other studies have demonstrated the healing power of Love, going so far as to prove that it is not healing modalities that heal people – it’s Love. I have come to the conclusion that all dis-ease in the body is generated by lack of unconditional love. All of our emotional, mental and spiritual issues end up expressing as disease in the body. None of them would exist if we had always been loved in an unconditional way with no judgment, no abandonment, no betrayal, and no rejection. So how do we move beyond the wounded love of the ego and learn to love unconditionally? I recommend Rose Quartz for this job. It is the stone that most perfectly embodies the essence of Love that our Creator feels for us. If you will accept Rose Quartz as your teacher, it will begin to show you that it knows everything there is to know about you - every single thing, and it loves you just as you are. It loves who you are, who you have been and all that you are becoming. There are no conditions. Rose Quartz will help you learn to love yourself unconditionally. The more you surrender to its frequency of Love, the faster this transformation will take place. It doesn’t matter where you are on the journey or when you stopped loving yourself – Rose Quartz will begin where you have left off and take you as far as you are willing to go. You will never finish your work with this stone. As long as you occupy a third-dimensional body, you can keep learning about Love. The lessons in loving will continue until we have learned to love ourselves and each other the way that God has always loved us – and always will.

Rose Quartz purifies the heart. It cleanses the pain of old betrayals, abandonments and rejections that block our ability to love well. It eases anxiety by showing us that only love is real. It helps us to feel and open to the love that is all around us. Rose Quartz heals the heart chakra and strengthens the physical heart. It comforts grief and heals conditions of the lungs, thymus and skin. Rose Quartz builds empathy and compassion so that we can forgive. It is also a great aid to accepting necessary change in one’s life. Rose Quartz is a stone of friendship too. It is highly beneficial to anyone of any age, no matter what their life circumstances may be. If you want to gift someone a Crystal and you don’t know which one to pick, go for Rose Quartz. You will truly be giving them the gift of Love. Karen Osborne is a Crystal Healer, Shamanic Practitioner and Educator. She operates a full-time healing practice, a Crystal store, and regularly offers training. She teaches a 2-Year Certification Program in Crystal Shamanism and a 5-Day Certification in Crystal Healing. Contact Karen: karen@ 613-798-2828

he moment Mankind has been waiting for over a millennium has finally arrived. A tangible proof of off-planet life has at long last arrived. The higher powers have shown their hand. In nineteen ninety nine, a website called ‘The Revelatorium’ was launched. The website revealed many aspects of the higher dimensions not previously known. By fall of two thousand and thirteen the Revelatorium had morphed into a full revelation of the Intelligent Design by which all of Creation has been blueprinted and expressed. The verity of the Design has now been proven in real time. This drawing is Figure 77 in Chapter 8 of the Revelatorium. the figure depicts the cubistic blueprint of the first six dimensions of the Outer Creation according to the formats of the Intelligent design. The image below of Saturn’s North Pole was taken by the Cassini probe. If you carefully compare the Revelatorium and Cassini pictures you will see that they are structurally identical. The Revelatorium drawing was done in two thousand and two. The Cassini probe was launched in 2009. Both have a clearly defined center circle and hexagon area representing the first, second, and third dimensions collectively. A blue coloured hexagon shaped ring with some pink spots around the center matches the ring of six different designs around the center of Figure 77, representing the fourth dimension. A large pink coloured hexagon shaped ring around the blue ring matches the ring of twelve identical designs around the first ring of six cubits of Figure 77, representing the fifth dimension. And finally a third faint pink coloured hexagon shaped ring with completely different background color around the second large pink ring matches the ring of eighteen identical designs around the ring of twelve cubits of Figure 77 on a different background, representing the six dimension. Part 2 will be the nest issue of Tone Magazine. By: Delahnnovahh-Starr Livingstone email:

Conversations It Is Worth Having


(Part Two) By Marlene and Bob Neufeld


n previous issues of TONE Magazine, we wrote about conversations we recommend people not put energy into and began to explore conversations we recommend people do put energy into. For a copy of those articles go to Today, we would like to continue to explore conversations it is worth having. 5. Reflecting, Validating: Often people around us just want to be heard accurately. They don’t want our advice or opinion. For more about this important topic check out the article on our website about listening. Frequently reflecting back what you are hearing can help clarify what is being said and can reduce anxiety and defensiveness. It is especially helpful to reflect back emotions that are being shared (without taking them personally) and to reflect back what you hear the other person wants. You don’t have to agree, you do need to hear what is being said. Once you have truly heard the other person, it is helpful to validate as much as you can. The most useful phrase in validation that we have found is “it makes sense to me that you would think, feel, want…” 6. Unarguable truth: We often say to our clients that if you are getting an argument back from someone, then you are being “arguable”. For example, saying “you never do your share of the dishes” will likely provoke an argument, while saying “I notice that the dishes didn’t get done tonight” will be less likely to do so. Of course, the other person can be finishing your sentence inside their head, especially if you have been used to blaming them. The most useful phrase in telling the unarguable truth is “I’m making up a story that…” This helps remind both you and the person you are talking to that what you are saying is really just your perception. For more about this topic see the articles on “Honesty” on our website.

7. Genuine regret, followed by what I plan to do differently: While we don’t recommend apologies (see article on our website of that name) letting the other person know that you do feel regret and taking response-ability; i.e. what response you are planning on taking, can be extremely helpful.

In next month’s Tone Magazine, we will be continuing this exploration as well as delve into why people insist on having the conversations that it is not worth having.

Ask a Naturopathic Doctor

Reframing Colds and Flus Katherine Willow N.D.


rom a holistic point of view, colds and flus are not a matter of catching a “bug”, they are about being off balance, physically and emotionally, through congestion, nutritional deficiency and significant stress. The interesting thing is that the cold or flu is actually the body’s way of trying to re-establish our balance. These “illnesses” are healing symptoms, with a subsequent improvement in health if they are managed properly—with rest, fluids, positive attitude and natural remedies. Drugs are required in emergencies, when a person does not have enough vitality. Drugs do more harm than good during acute episodes if one is basically healthy by suppressing our bodies’ healing mechanisms. In healing chronic conditions, even cancer, we see patients going through colds and flus as the body starts to detoxify, although we do our best to avoid this by going slowly. So how do we prevent these miserable conditions— even if they are supposed to be good for us? • Manage stress. Unmitigated fight or flight state is the number one immune buster. Often the cold or flu comes on during the “let-down” phase after a stress is resolved and we descend into let-down/recovery mode with its accompanying detoxification. • Sleep 7-9 hours, starting before 10pm when the energies begin to rise, in a fully darkened room, away from electronic equipment; dim lights after dinner to avoid suppression of melatonin which makes us sleepy to recharge our bodies after the stress of the day. Take small naps/rests during the day to pace energy. Good sleep is our best immune booster. • Movement helps keep toxins from congesting our body and manifesting in colds and flus. • Food that fits the season, warming and nourishing, raw in small servings gives us energy, balances our weight and keeps us de-congested; then we rarely need to have a cold or flu. Think non-wheat grains, lots of veggies, nuts, beans, grass-fed organic meat and poultry, wild fish, cold-pressed oils, herb teas and coffees, natural sweeteners and condiments. And the biggest food trick for most of us to avoid illness is: EAT LESS.

This is a HUGE flu preventive and overall perk. • Supplements include: vitamin A, C and D; echinacea in small doses a few days/week, garlic, digestive enzymes, adrenal support; elderberry concentrates in small doses, homeopathic flu prevention monthly and zinc are a few immune builders when life is stressful. • About the flu shot: I don’t recommend it unless a patient is afraid not to have it and use alternative methods to boost immunity and build health. Treating a cold or flu: • Fevers are therapeutic; only medicate if lifethreatening. • Stop eating or eat as lightly as you can. You can stop a flu/cold in its tracks if you do this immediately. • Take echinacea, astragalus or elderberry extract, homeopathic aconite or oil of oregano. Everyone has their favourite, just take it IMMEDIATELY. Once the process takes hold, we’re usually down for a few days. • Rest, rest, rest. If you can’t, you’ll probably be “sick” longer. • Make sure bowels are regular. • Stay warm: baths, hot compresses on chest, infra-red sauna (if feeling strong enough) • Hot fluids: ginger tea, chicken broth, lemon water with raw honey, other herb teas. • Stay positive and smile.

Biofeedback Therapy: Imprinting healing information on your Body … of Water By Ati Petrov, DHHP

Biofeedback uses technology to scan your body for sources of stress (physical or mental) and applying corrective treatment. It works by imprinting information onto your system. Since your body is 80% and water records information, with biofeedback therapy corrections can be made to fit exactly your current needs. Q: “Does this mean that our environment also affects us?” A: Yes, everything around you makes an impression! You are affected by the moon, barometric pressure, elevation and especially by mental impressions. But your body has controlling mechanisms, which under normal circumstances counter these strong impacts and maintain balance. When there is repetitive or excessive influence by one factor the balance or fluidity is disturbed. Q: “How do I know that I have tipped the balance?” A: You feel “stuck” in a state distress. A physical symptom is often a visible confirmation of the situation. Biofeedback can find and correct such extreme imbalances. This will allow your body to resume its own natural regulation processes.

Q: “How is this done?” A: Biofeedback is used to tune into your subconscious field. This process does not require a physical contact with the client. Once the problem is identified, a series of energy treatments are set up over a period of time individual to each client, but usually for 30 days.

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

Q: “How quickly can I expect results?” A: This depends on your level of participation and the ability of your body to heal. Biofeedback treatment will shift the situation, but you can also use other therapies to strengthen your body so it can heal faster. The results of the scan by themselves are interesting. They will provide you with information you can use to work on emotional or life issues. Q: “Are the results permanent?” A: As with any therapy, acute conditions resolve quickly. Chronic problems require multiple treatments in order to cover all the variations in the case. The quality of the results also depends on the practitioner’s ability to use the technology and especially in their training as a healer. Ati Petrov DHHP works at the Village Clinic in Westboro. She has worked with biofeedback with the Inergetix-CoRE system since 2007.

Hives and Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac.


n outbreak of hives can be one of those conditions that is particularly confusing. They seem to come and go for no good reason, they can be supremely itchy, and often the underlying cause is never known. Hives, also know as urticaria, are associated with an allergic reaction, and can occur over a long period of time (chronic—more than six to eight weeks), or they can be acute, which means they’re of short duration (less than six to eight weeks). Hives occur because histamine is released from your cells, causing raised flat wheals that can range in size from smaller than a dime to that of a dinner plate. In rare instances, an allergic reaction can cause severe symptoms, called anaphylaxis. In those cases, the histamine reaction causes your blood vessels to dilate, making your blood pressure drop. At the same time, the reaction may cause asthma-like symptoms that constrict the airways in your lungs and throat. These cases are considered to be life threatening and should be treated as an emergency by getting medical help—fast. In Chinese medicine, hives, or urticaria, are considered to be a wind rash. Wind is a pathogen in which there is movement where there should be none. The nature of hives is very wind-like. They come and go, move around your body, and change size rapidly. In addition to being associated with wind, in Chinese medicine hives can be either warm or cold. Hives that are very red, aggravated by heat, and feel warm to the touch are associated with heat. In contrast, hives that are pale, worse in the cold weather and are relieved with the application of heat are considered to be cold. In Chinese medicine hives are almost always associated with a weak exterior. Your body is surrounded by a “protective bubble”, which is your exterior and which acts a little like immunity. It protects you from things like colds, flu, and allergies. When your protective bubble is weak, you become more prone to catching the cold du jour, as well as suffering from conditions that affect your exterior—most notably your skin. In Western medicine, the treatment for hives is antihistamines. However, Chinese medicine may combine body acupuncture with Chinese herbs and/or ear acupuncture to resolve your hives. A few things you can try to temporarily relieve the itching associated with hives includes: 1. Try a cold compress or cool bath. The application of cold shrinks the blood vessels and decreases the amount of histamine being released. This will work even if you have a Chinese medicine diagnosis of

cold wind rash. However, if cold is a trigger for your hives, this tip won’t work for you. 2. Calm down with tea. In many cases, episodes of hives are brought on or aggravated by stressful situations. So sit down and have a cup of herbal tea. Try chrysanthemum, chamomile, peppermint, or passion flower. 3. Get topical. Try some calamine lotion, milk of magnesia (it’s alkaline and should help the itch), or witch hazel. You can chill any of these in the refrigerator for a cooling effect. 4. Avoid anything, if known, that might be triggering your allergic reaction. For example, certain foods, temperature changes, and even exercise can bring on a bout of itching for some people.

Psychiatric Drugs Worsen PTSD: Veteran and Military Suicide Epidemic Linked to Psychiatric Drugs


sychiatry appears to be the hidden enemy of all military and especially those suffering PTSD. The militaries of the world are now drenched in psychiatry and psychiatric drugs resulting in some 23 soldiers and veterans committing suicide every day. These statistics seem to parallel the chilling statistics we see in the civilian population, including children, on psychiatric medications. ( Dec 2013) World renowned psychiatrist Dr. Peter Breggin has been calling for a ban on psychiatric drug treatment highlighting the many studies showing the worsening of all emotional and mental issues by psychiatric drugs. Still, the medical/pharmaceutical cartel claims we need more psychiatry and drugs! Even newborns by the thousands are being drugged for ‘anxiety’. A new DVD “The Hidden Enemy: A documentary’, features interviews with over 80 soldiers and non-pharmaceutical controlled experts on the connection between psychiatry and worsening PTSD outcomes. This insightful documentary reveals the real culprits in the destruction of the world’s militaries from within and again supports the assertions made by Dr. Breggin for years: • The undeniable effects of combat stress have been chronicled by writers for centuries. But in 1980, psychiatrists labeled it “post-traumatic stress disorder,” or “PTSD,” later claiming—without evidence—that it was a “brain” dysfunction. 37% of recent war veterans are being treated for it. And once diagnosed with PTSD, 80% are given a psychiatric drug, even though study after study shows psychiatric drugs worsen outcomes and causes perfectly normal brains to function abnormally. • Since 2002, the suicide rate in the U.S. military has almost doubled. From 2009 to 2012, more U.S. soldiers died by suicide than from traffic accidents, heart disease, cancer and homicide. In Canada recently, 4 sol-

diers committed suicide within one week, yet mainstream media fails repeatedly to link their treatment to their suicides, despite the fact that these drugs come with warnings for increased risk of suicide and homicide. • Psychiatric drug side-effects include agitation, aggression, mood swings, paranoia and hallucinations that family members are ill equipped to handle. Every year since 2001, there has been a 15% increase in visits to mental health professionals by military family members. • Veterans with PTSD are often prescribed medications not supported by government guidelines or independent study results. Most of these prescriptions are written by mental health care providers, who rarely, if ever, help sufferers access safer alternative treatments. • Reuters has reported on a study that analyzed the prescription and medical records of 1.85 million veterans who filled prescriptions in 2010 for at least one psychiatric medication. They found veterans older than 65 were prescribed these addictive psychiatric drugs without a diagnosis 44 percent more often than veterans in their 40s. So, why is the military brass so keen on drugging its veterans and active soldiers instead of helping them find and use empathic therapies? Perhaps the answer comes from following the money trail. Until psychiatric drugs are completely banned, no one is safe from the greed of the medical/pharmaceutical cartel where now even newborns are sacrificed for profit. As long as someone profits from another’s suffering, empathic treatments such as the successful hypnotherapy approach I offer will never be given their rightful credit. Since the 1930’s empathic treatments such as hypnotherapy have been proven repeatedly to be far superior in helping restore lives and health. Now, even Psychiatric Service Dogs are proving to be far superior to drugs. Soldiers went to the Great Wars, lived through the Great Depression and survived to build productive lives. The difference is that today, soldiers are too often drugged to an early death.

Mayor Watson Declares January 4th as World Hypnotism Day In Ottawa


one are the days when people think of medals and people giving off starry eyed stares whenever they hear the word “hypnotism”. It is no longer just a tool used my magicians and hypnotists to get people to do what they ask. In today’s modern world, hypnosis is being used to help people break free from barriers that hold them back so that they can be the best that they can be. On January 4, the world welcomes the New Year by celebrating the very first World Hypnotism DayIn Ottawa. Now that people recognize its many benefits, citizens of the world have a reason to celebrate and inform those who are not aware of how hypnosis can help and benefit them. This holiday declared by Mayor Jim Watson & Founder Dr Luke Michael Howard will surely be the first of many. On January 4, people will learn about the many benefits of hypnosis. Feeling stressed lately and you can’t seem to shake it off? Instead of taking those medications to help you sleep, why not find true relaxation and distress through hypnosis? True, it cannot be done by just anyone and must be facilitated by experts, but many would attest to its efficacy. Hypnosis Ottawa is equivalent to the name of Dr. Luke Michael Howard, who is among the names to watch for during World Hypnotism Day. The benefits of hypnosis Ottawa by Dr. Luke include finding help to get over an addiction may it be drugs,

alcohol and gambling among other things. It can even help people lose weight because a big chunk of it is all about self-control – something that many find very difficult to practice in this day and age. What many people are not aware of is that hypnosis affects not just mental concerns but physical ones as well. Chronic pain is something that becomes manageable when properly dealt with using hypnosis. Pain management is one of the many things that experts in hypnosis learn and practice to help people live their best life. The countless benefits of hypnosis include helping people deal with childhood issues in a healthy manner. Psychologists would agree that many issues that people deal with stem from childhood. Lack of self-esteem, anger problems and other things relating to that time lead people to making bad decisions as adults. It prevents them from enjoying and living life to the fullest. Hypnosis can help individuals with childhood issues so that they can break free from it once and for all. Even repressed memories buried deep in the brain can be recovered through hypnosis. On January 4, do not expect to see medallions being used by hypnotists. Do expect to be educated on the benefits of hypnosis and what it can do for you along with special events. Allow Dr. Luke to introduce you to what hypnosis is all about. There will be no medallions but there will be a lot of mental prodding to help people be the best version of themselves. Exciting things will surely happen on the first ever World Hypnotism Day Ottawa.

“I Can Make You Stop Smoking in One Hour” 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.

been featured in all forms of media such as Tone Magazine, CTV Morning Live, and CBC Radio.

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.

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 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

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.

“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 613-878-5874.

Latendresse Life Memories


n an effort to combat higher prices, he has decided to charge even less each year for the same product. What does that mean? Well, in 2014, the cost to a customer is $500.00 for a lengthy video montage of your loved one’s photos on a DVD to be played at the funeral or anytime in the privacy of the home. It’s a issue, late in its inception as he has been making these compilation video for over ten years for friends, family and neighbours where he lives right here in Ottawa. He says, ‘I am disgusted by the lack of material one sees at funerals and the poor quality one pays for the high cost of $500.00 for a little 15 minute video montage of anyone’s favourite person, now dead and in a box. A person’s life cannot be expressed effectively in such a short video and it’s an insult to anyone to have to pay to view such triviality when the biggest loss ever has happened to us. So, I decided to try to provide the public with an alternative concept, and one which better focuses on a person’s early childhood, growing up in the family, the clothes, the smiles, the joy and laughter, the schooldays, the plays and sports in high school, the dating, the jobs, the all important marriage and family which it produced, and as we grew older and had our own grand children. I suppose that we would be more happy to spend time smiling and laughing then crying at a wake, so here is my little protest to funeral homes’ inappropriate and all too short dvd products.’ In the launch of John’s five year attempt to make things more affordable, his plan is to charge in this fashion: All photo/video montages comprise of scanning photos, some alterations such as close-ups, restorations, themes, appropriate music for the times involved, smiles, accomplishments, special events, jobs, family and more on 5 DVDs and one of the restored + photos in digital form also on a DVD.

2014 prices: long videos = $500.00 or a short video will be available for $50.00 every year. 2015 long videos = $450.00 / 2016 long videos = $400.00 / 2017 long videos = $350.00 / 2018 long videos = $300.00 then John will retire as he hopes to continue his other projects with more time on his hands as he does now before starting this business. He says he knew that the funeral parlour in his home town would only offer a tiny rendition of his mother’s wonderful life for people to see, he made his own and presented it at the funeral wake. During this time, a cousin mentioned he should start this as a business and thought it would probably take-off and so John decided to try it for a short five years to see if people responded and if it actually made a difference in forcing funeral homes into focusing on life rather than death. John says, ‘If I can help a few more people before my own passing, so be it; And also because I know how hard it is to think when your loved one dies, it’s not the right time to make a video when your missing someone and it becomes a rush to produce it so I recommend everyone to make their own DVD now or have me make it for you soon since I plan to only do this for a few years myself.’ Although his main focus for the last few years has been Jesus videos shown on Youtube known as the1stshepherd, he now would like to make a difference in his own community by allowing us all to better enjoy the memories of our dearly departed on DVD to enjoy the whole year through and for years to come. John says, ‘Play Barry Manilow’s Even Now and see where my heart is; And although I know we will all see each other again on the last day, I will remember my mom always until my own day comes.’ He continues, ‘Just send me your photos and video, your certificates and diplomas, your life memories to me by mail-order and I will gladly spend the time to produce something worth watching every year, the smiles, the joy, the good times we share together. We should not wait until the last minute as we know not when our day will come nor the hour of its approach.’ John can be reached after 5 PM any day of the week at 613 - 408-4877

Is Mainstream Media Behaviour Endangering Lives? by Grace Joubarne, Clinical Hypnotherapist


ainstream journalists seem willfully oblivious to what is really going on in the world of adulterated food, vaccination scandals, the world-wide anti-GMO revolt and the medical-pharmaceutical-fluoridation frauds perpetrated on the public daily. We have to hear of pharmaceutical, psychiatric and food scandals that are maiming and killing millions by way of lawsuits and alternative news agencies such as Natural News, InfoWars, Organic Consumers Association, CCHRint and WDDTY (What Doctors Don’t Tell You). While mainstream news outlets seem ignorant of the enormous revolt against Monsanto across the world, the calls for the banning of the psychiatric drugging of children (including of newborns), as well as the public demand for labeling of GM foods, major petition organizations such as Avaaz continue to force massive change in the world. Not long ago CTV News (Ottawa) reported on an unidentified study about how Aspirin may decrease the risk of melanoma. No information as to who carried out the study or their links to Bayer who manufactures Aspirin was provided. Absent in this misleading reporting was the fact that as early as 2004, reliable studies proved that a person taking 1 Aspirin per day as recommended to ward off heart attacks increased their risk of pancreatic cancer by at least 58% and at 2 Aspirin per day, by 85%! Not a word escapes their mouths and articles about how hypnotherapy and empathic therapies have been proven to be effective, healthy, drug-free, addictionfree options to brain-damaging psychiatric treatments. CCHRint (Citizens Committee on Human Rights International) this week released major statistics that show psychiatric treatments worsen PTSD outcomes, yet not a question in our mainstream media about why psychiatrists insist that sufferers of mental illnesses be streamed to them for their damaging and useless drugs despite this dreadful failure rate. Vaccination rates around the world, and therefore pharmaceutical profits, are decreasing dramatically as the truth about their link to permanent brain damage, behavioral problems and autism spread across the internet, despite the best effort of mainstream media in Canada and the USA to smother this vitally important information.


Three things were clear in Tristin Hopper’s article (May 4/13 National Post) on the battle to force parents to vaccinate their children: First, she is either both deliberately misinforming the public and skewing facts or she is simply so biased she cannot do her homework. Secondly, just because corporate-sponsored proponents use undemocratic behaviors to force parents to inoculate their children with illness-causing mercury, Thimerosal and MSG, it does not make it right, particularly since the courts in the USA are now awarding $10 Million dollar settlements to parents of children made autistic and brain-damaged by vaccinations. Thirdly, she not only neglected to mention the landmark lawsuits against vaccine companies, she left out that antivaccination parents can sign an exemption form, have it notarized and put on the child’s file to protect them. Hopper did not inform the public about the more than 10 Homeopathic vaccines licensed by Health Canada as safe and effective, which provides yet another alternative to the Russian Roulette of conventional vaccines. As far back as 2008, the US Court of Federal Claims quietly admitted that pharmaceutical vaccines, particularly those containing mercury-based preservative Thimerosal, caused autistic behaviors. Over $2.3 Billion has been quietly paid out in vaccinerelated damages during 1989-2013 in the US alone, some with gag-orders. On Jan 28, 2013, David Kirby of the Huffington Post broke yet another story of $10 Million dollar payouts in two separate cases of children irreversibly brain-damaged by vaccines with health records of both children reading like a novel about medieval tortures. Mainstream media never requires full disclosure of financial connections between the ‘experts’ they interview and the pharmaceutical companies whose products they are pushing. Where there is a proponent of vaccines/drugs there is a money trail…yet it is never until after the damage is done and the fraud and collusion between doctors and Big Pharma are exposed in the courts that mainstream media meekly report on it, if at all. By then thousands, if not millions, have been irreversibly harmed. You will never hear on most TV channel news programs that millions vaccinated against the flu caught the flu, that studies show a 1,400% increase in the risk of narcolepsy with the H1N1 flu vaccine, that Merck was exposed in court for faking efficacy data for its measles vaccine, that swine flu vaccines increased the risk of paralysis disorder and failed to provide protection especially to the elderly, that flu vaccines during pregnancy lead to 4,250% increase in fetal deaths and that the HPV and tetanus vaccines cause deadly autoimmune disease. Or that 98 million people were

Finding courage through connection – Reiki and me


year after I moved to Ottawa, while pregnant with my first son, I decided that I wanted to volunteer at a local drop-in women’s shelter giving Reiki treatments. Prior to that, I had been practicing Reiki out of a yoga studio in downtown Toronto and I really missed it. The volunteer coordinator suggested that I help out at a permanent residence for women in need of continuous care and support. She felt this would be a safer, calmer place than the drop-in shelter. And so my journey as a Reiki volunteer began. Even a few minutes of Reiki can help calm a person and restore their sense of wellbeing. “What the heck is Reiki?” you might ask, as many do. Reiki, pronounced RAYKEY, is a practice that helps to restore balance to one’s system by engaging the body’s selfhealing mechanisms. A Reiki treatment, which is usually facilitated through light touch on or just above the body, typically brings rapid stress reduction and relief from pain and anxiety. The recipient remains fully clothed and can either be seated or lying down. Having experienced this feeling myself through treatments, I was well aware of the benefits and wanted to share the experience with others. It is so rewarding to help bring more ease, calm, focus and peace of mind to people. The rewards of volunteering far surpassed my expectations. I became friends with women of all ages and backgrounds. Some shared stories of their trials and tribulations, some preferred to just quietly receive

given the polio vaccine containing the SV40 Cancer Virus! Certainly you will never hear that the shooters in most, if not all, of the mass shootings in Canada and the US were, or had been treated with addictive psychiatric drugs. Mainstream media never reports on the childhood disability and brain damage due to psychiatric drugging, or the epidemic of dental and skeletal fluorosis due to fluoridation of drinking water, or sounds alarm about the many thousands of newborns now psychiatrically drugged for ‘anxiety’. They never interview those experts who are not shills of Big Pharma, such as Dr. Peter Breggin and Dr. Paul Connett so the real facts are aired. School authorities are now ‘bragging’ about forcing parents to vaccinate and psychiatrically drug their children against their will…mainstream media should be doing a huge exposé on how our democratic right to choose our own medicine

Reiki, and others just curiously looked on. After an evening of volunteering I would happily return home to my role as a stay-at-home mom, feeling like I made a meaningful connection, not only to the world outside, but also to the sacred world inside. Reiki assists one to open a channel to the divine – it inspires and uplifts. I have gained a greater sense of purpose from serving others in the community as well as my family. Connecting with women through Reiki has nourished my spirit. I get to do something I love and received trust and friendship in return. Recently, I was invited to offer Reiki at a new permanent residence, built in 2011. For the first time ever, many of the support staff, including nurses and social workers, have come to try Reiki. Many have reported feeling calmer and more peaceful after a session. It only makes sense that caregivers also need to take care of themselves. Offering Reiki in the workplace can help ease stress and tension, improve concentration and boost morale. When you feel good, that feeling spreads to others! As a volunteer, I have made new friends, heard many stories and learned more about myself and the world. By touching the lives I others, I have gained a valuable sense of confidence and contribution. Serving in this way has deepened my connection with Reiki and the community I live in. Curious about how Reiki can bring more ease and energy into your life? Visit to learn more.

is being dissolved by Big Pharma collusion with the medical and education community instead of aiding in these crimes against humanity through absentee journalism. Seventy-five years of psychiatric drugging has made it abundantly clear that no pill will heal emotional or mental issues, that the only vaccine needed is the one to protect us against pharmaceutical scams, We all need to abandon main stream media in favor of alternative health-focused media if we are to survive this holocaust of corporate greed.

Meditation on Love and Light by Reza Shadman


editations on light and love is a very heart-based and healing practice. There are plenty of heart opening meditations and many calls onto love, light, Angels and beings of Light. Many who join the classes are not necessarily familiar with these concepts or may have never meditated at all. Yet a familiar sense attracts them or they are at ease with what I say. The first time I ran into the concept known as the Divine Mother, I just felt loved. If it weren’t for my teacher describing the “Divine Mother”, I wouldn’t probably label such a feeling. It was simply a distinct feeling of a loving energy holding and surrounding me. There is no rigid way of sitting or doing things. Classes are small and the sessions are in guided format. I’ve found guided meditations helps with focusing and calming the mind. To get a feeling of this style there is a free intro on Monday the 27th, and for those who wish

to continue 8 more weeks will follow. You can know more about me and classes at Meditation on Love and Light Free intro, Monday January 27th 6-7:30pm no experience necessary Planet Botanix, 301 Bank, (Bank and Somerset ) Must register at 613 794-0677

Winter Study Session at Pine Gate

Ian Prattis e continue with the “Fully Alive” retreat by Pema Chodron as the main study of the Winter Study Session beginning on Thursday January 16, 2014, 7.00pm - 9.00pm. The Fall Study Session provided some deep and pithy dharma from Pema Chodron. It was interspersed with talks on Engaged Buddhism, Consciousness, Judgement, The Sutra on Knowing the Better Way to Be Alone and the Science of Mantra from Dharmacharya Ian. Deep Relaxation with Carolyn and a Five Mindfulness Trainings Recitation rounded things out. The Fully Alive retreat is on 2 DVD’s and totals 5 hours. We will begin the Winter Session with Talk 4. The book - Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change – is the text. Folk are encouraged to get a copy - either from Singing Pebble or Serendipity bookstores in Ottawa.  The second DVD and  discussion sessions will be interspersed with the Buddha’s Foundation Teachings, plus  important ceremonies such as a Tea Ceremony to stir the pot of dharma. The focus on the “Fully Alive” retreat addresses the difficult times we are in. Life sometimes seems like a roiling and turbulent river threatening to drown us. Why, in the face of that, shouldn’t we cling to the safety of the shore - to our comfortably familiar patterns and habits? Pema Chodron teaches: that kind of fear-based clinging leads only to greater suffering. In this recorded retreat, based on the program “Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change” she provides a wealth of wisdom for learning to step right into the river, to be completely, fearlessly, present even in the hardest times, the most difficult situations. It’s the secret of being fully alive. When we learn to let go of our protective patterns and do that, we begin to see not only how much better it feels to live that way, but, as a wonderful side effect, we find that we begin to naturally and effectively reach out to others in care and support. The teachings and practices include:   1. A teaching - based on Native American prophecy - for cultivating the ability to take nothing personally. 2. A guided meditation for developing patience in the midst of irritation. 3. A curiosity practice to release your mind from old habits. 4. Tips for accessing your innate strength and confidence - simply by altering your posture. 5. Ways to make your practice the impetus for serving others.”

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: From the spiritual point of view, does the new year have any specific significance?

SRI CHINMOY: From the spiritual point of view, the new year does have a specific significance. On the eve of the new year, a new consciousness dawns on earth. God once again inspires each human being with new hope, new light, new peace and new bliss. God always wants us to move ahead; He does not want us to look back. We know that if a runner looks back while he is running fast, immediately his speed decreases. Similarly, if we are constantly looking behind at the year that we are leaving, we will think of our sorrow, misery, frustration, failure and so forth. But if we look forward, we will see hope dawning ahead of us and a new light illumining our consciousness. Each new year is like a new rung on the ladder of consciousness which we have to climb up. When the new year dawns, we have to make ourselves conscious of the fact that we have to transcend our present capacity and present achievement. Every day must come to us as a new hope, a new promise, a new aspiration, a new energy, a new thrill and a new delight. Tomorrow will dawn and we have already seen thousands of days. If we think that tomorrow will be another day like those which we have already seen, then we will make no progress. You have to feel that tomorrow will be something absolutely new that you are going to create in your life. It is only with newness, newness at every moment in life, that we can succeed and transcend ourselves. If we always have the hope of newness in thought and in action, then only can we transcend. The new year energises us, encourages us and inspires us. Every day we have to energise ourselves

to such an extent that we will feel new hope and new aspiration. If we want to live on earth, then we must have hope and promise. Newness always carries the message of hope, the message of promise and the message of fulfilment, divine fulfilment. Every time we invoke newness, newness gives us hope. Newness gives us promise. Again, newness brings us the message of fulness. Anything that is old is not complete. Anything that is new is full of hope. In newness there is the hope and the promise that we will be complete. Oldness can never embody the complete reality. It is the ever-transcending newness that will carry the message of completion. As a new year dawns, every day think of yourself as a new flower. In the morning, think of yourself as a bud. Then at noon, feel that this bud is blossoming. Finally, in the evening, think of yourself as a fully blossomed flower. It all started with newness. In the morning, the newness of the flower is just tiny. At noon it becomes a little bigger. In the evening it becomes the largest. This is the life of eternal newness Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Happy New Year!

Erin Lamont is a registered massage therapist (RMT) and owner of Therapeutic Effects Massage Therapy located in the Village Clinic.


anuary is always an inspiring month. We feel motivated for change. We vow that we are going to try and eat healthier, exercise more, go to bed earlier, be more positive in our thoughts and actions and make 2014 the best year ever. But something happens usually around March. We often lose our drive and motivation and think, “I’ll do better next year.” It’s no wonder our positive drive is drained, because we put too much pressure for lots of change in a short period of time. So instead of trying to make your whole life change in a year, I challenge you to change in 12 months. Yes, this is different from a year! Pick 12 things to do and dedicate 1 month to each of them. Reflect both at the end of the month and at the end of 2014 on what it was you liked and didn’t like about each month’s activity. You can use these reflections to decide which activities you would like to permanently incorporate into your life. Having trouble coming up with your 12 activities? Here are some suggestions: 1) Be a vegetarian for a month 2) Volunteer 3) Research and compare the local community shared agriculture (CSA) farms 4) Try a new sport 5) Try a new exercise- weights, different cardio exercises 6) Meditate every day or every second day for 10 minutes or even 15 minutes 7) Try new thinking- before jumping out of bed in the morning think of 3 positive things in your life 8) Read 1 book that’s a genre that you would never read 9) For every negative thought about yourself, say something positive about yourself 10) Try eliminating one thing from your diet- ex.: dairy, wheat, sugar 11) Try new holistic therapies such as reflexology, massage therapy, osteopath, colour therapy, etc. (1/week) 12) Try a month of yoga going 2-3 times/week Remember that each activity is only for 1 month! If one of your activities for 2014 is to have more youtime and work on your mental health when it comes to burnout or compassion fatigue, our holistic program at the Village Clinic can help guide you to the healthy state of mind and body that you want to achieve. 613-797-5481

Thanking Nature Saying thanks in voice and speech helps animals and plants. They want to be appreciated.  (Respect, a First Nation teaching). “Thanks to monarchs...” Accent words with footsteps.  This slight body movement increases the power of intention.  (Dance, learned from First Nation teachers). Thanks to caribou, 
 Gifts of caribou, Appre - ciation!
 Thanks for caribou’s contribution! As well as cheering on the animals, this gratitude practice cheers myself up!  Try it, go ahead and see if it works for you. Thanks to Creator
 Giving us the bears
 Healthy bears on the land!
 Be happy bears!  But stay away from the city! Always end with a warning for non-urban animals.  They are attracted to your positive vibrations and could wander into the city and get into trouble.  Animals are receptive to human thought and emotion.  Nature’s condition mirrors the web of mental ambience spun out by humans (A.Bailey). Thanks to plants and flowers, thanks for forests,
 Thanks for waters, thanks to rocks and soil,
 Thanks for sunshine, thanks to the air. As well as helping Nature and cheering yourself up, this gratitude practice awakens the world.  When we project appreciation and recognition, flowers sing and rabbits wiggle their ears. I’ll host a Thank Nature workshop free if 3 people call! Carlos Lee Murray 613-231-6181

Transforming Through Art


aking ‘art’ has helped me to explore unconscious beliefs; to manifest goodness and peace; to get to the other side of anger and frustration, to assit in my emotional and physical healing and to find creative solutions naturally and effortlessly. Art has allowed me to heal in ways I could never have dreamt of. One afternoon I got so angry at someone that I was “beside myself” and I went for a walk to calm down. I stopped for soup, which often makes me feel supported and cared for, but it didn’t really help. I had brought some paper and a pen with me, but that day I was so angry I couldn’t even write anything down. I came back home still feeling very upset, and felt drawn to take out paints and a big piece of paper. I ended up doing 3 or 4 paintings quickly and instinctively. The 1st painting was a fantastic way to release the anger and the intensity. I needed to see my feelings as bold angry splatters of colors: facing me, talking back at me, or simply witnessing where I was at, I’m not sure. After looking at the 1st painting for 5 minutes or so I went on to the next painting, and the next, and the next. And somehow, I can explain how, because I wasn’t really trying, I felt much better, much calmer. I’m not going to pretend that everything was fixed and that I had a peaceful blissful sleep that night. However what I can say, is that I was calm enough to go to sleep. The next morning when I looked at my paintings it was as if a huge storm had passed and I would now be able to get through the next thing. In fact what it allowed me to do is to get the anger and the emotion out of the way so I could talk to the person I was angry with. It allowed me to share my feelings, thoughts, and reasoning without exploding and most importantly, to make peace with myself and the other person involved. There are lots of ways of using art to go a little deeper within ourselves. Sometimes it helps us to find solutions we never would have thought of, sometimes

it can help us to consider other possibilities or see things in a different way without even trying, and it can be plain fun! If you would like to see some images of this work and hear other stories I will be offering a free presentation February 13th 2014 at the Royal Ottawa Hospital. Please email me at for more details. If you would like to explore how art can help you connect with a deeper part of yourself there is a new space in Sandy Hill called SpiritArt Studio that was created precisely for that. Workshops are offered for you to nurture your spirit through a multitude of artistic expressions in a supportive environment that encourages a soft focus on the process, thereby inviting innate wisdom to surface. Louise Lalande, coCreations creative director, is a versatile artist, facilitator and reiki master and the coordinator of the SpiritArt Studio. For more information please visit and

Laura’s Numerology News for January 2014 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! *Note: This is a general numerology forecast. You have many other numbers connect to your name and birthday that will give you a better understanding of who you are and where you are going, this year. Contact me for a 90 minute personal numerology consultation if you are at a major cross-road in your life.

Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth. Then you will add the number 8 to your number. NOTE – If your final number adds up to double digits, add the numbers together again, and again, if you have to, until you get a single number. If you still have trouble, email me at 1. Get ready to be brave and take a leap of faith as new opportunities are knocking on your door. A short term contact or job that will morph later may come your way. Go for it especially if there is a learning curve attached to it. 2. Bait your hook and get it in the water as there could be a new love interest or business partner close by. The year will start out slow in all areas, but be patient as it will pick up later. Think diplomacy and compromise all year. Pushiness will push back. 3. There will be much scattered energy around you this year and it will be tough to keep your head together and remain focused. First of all, finish the commitments from last year, then weed out the junk, and only then, take on more. Take time for creativity, too. 4. Give your accountant a shout to set you up with a spending plan for the year. Left alone you might blow your entire wad on mindless pursuits. Make a decision to save your money now, so you can take a good chunk of the summer off. You need to do some emotional healing this year, too, so get busy. 5. I hope that you factored in a bit fun, last year? The fun stops here and now, my friend. This is a hardcore rebuilding year, on all fronts. What need fixing in your life? Make friends with work and lots of it in 2014. You will accomplish much if you get serious early. 6. Are you moving from your home or office this month? Are there some really big changes on the home front? Your life is in flux for the whole year, but these changes are in the area of “domestic things” in Jan. You need loose hips and a hard hat to get through this year.

7. Now is the time to get ready for a very, very busy year. You must refuel and focus on yourself, first, though. You will need mega energy to be present for everyone else for the balance of the year, so plug in and charge up your battery, now. 8. The perfect use of this year is to take a year long sabbatical and sit on a mountain, alone and Zen out. I know that this is tough to do but you must try to factor in as much “ME” time as possible. Don’t do this and the universe will slap you in the back of the head and make you. This is a great year for self improvement and education. 9. This is a major excavation month to clean away the unfinished projects and chores that you do not want to take with you into the balance of 2014. Get rid of habits, attitudes, medical issues, people and anything else that is clogging your life. It is full steam ahead in Feb., so get busy, now Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist and core belief modification coach. She is located in Ottawa, but can conduct phone or skype consultations anywhere. For personal consultations please email: or call 613-725-7232.

What can Numerology do for you? Numerology is a study of numbers. There is evidence that numerology was in use thousands of years ago in China, Greece and Egypt even before the time of Pythagoras, who is generally accepted as the "father" of numerology. Why is numerology still in use and of interest to so many? It is because it works, that is why. • Are you currently at a major cross-road in your life? Should you make a decision or move forward now or wait? • Numerology can help you uncover hidden talents and turn them into a career. • An analysis of partners, children, friends or co-workers can help you deal with them more efficiently. • Numerology can help you heal from past issues and move on. • Help you understand how you can use the current year, month and day for its best influence. • Be more aware of your own areas of weakness and learn how to turn them into strengths. Stop repeating history once and for all. Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist/life coach living in Ottawa. She has written “Laura’s numerology News” in Tone Magazine for over 8 years.

Tooth medicine or poison?


ess than 1% of the water that municipalities treat for drinking purposes is actually used for drinking; the rest ends up back in the environment with the fluoride (and its many co-contaminants) that is banned by the EPA as an environmental contaminant. You may never look at tap water the same way again. The proponents of fluoridation call it fluoride, but it’s more than just the Fluoride ion, it’s a soupy chemical that has the dreaded H2SiF6 (Hydrofluorosilicic acid HFSA) in it, plus all of the co-contaminants associated with this fluoridation chemical, claimed by fluoridation promoters to be a water additive with tooth decay remediation properties. There’s a list of what uses are made of treated water, just so you get the full picture of how little water is actually used for drinking, at waterUses.html There are other known contaminants in that toxic fluoridation soup not declared but that independent testing has found in it, such as Polonium, Uranium238, barium, radon, cobalt, radium and possibly others, varying based on the batch, because it is derived from the mining processes used to extract phosphate for the super phosphate fertilizer industry. Do you still think Ottawa’s water is good and safe to drink? Fluoridation is done under the false pretence that it treats tooth decay in some way: proponents now euphemistically call it an “oral health measure” but we call it what it is: a fraudulent “tooth medicine” because actually, it does nothing to treat tooth decay. It’s been found to damage teeth and cause or aggravate many illnesses. After over three years of research, I am thoroughly convinced of that last statement. If fluoridation worked to prevent or reduce tooth decay, I would still have most of my teeth today and there would be far less dentists than there are now. The sad fact is that I no longer have any teeth, yet I drank Ottawa’s fluoridated water for over 30 years. But I digress. Here’s one example of what’s in their “fluoride” among other substances declared by the specifications data sheet found here: hydrofluorosilicicAcidSpecifications. html Everyone should read a copy of the Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), and become familiar with this acid, copy available here: http:// or this one: MSDS_Mosaic_HFSA_05_11.pdf. Currently, Ottawa drips this fluoridation chemical into your water


VOLUNTEERS WANTED Event organizer/planner, Marketing Specialist, Political consultant Fundraiser, Accountant, Lawyer Contact the President, Fluoridation-Free Ottawa supply, like many other communities, and eventually into our waterways at a rate that far exceeds 70 metric tons per year, since that is just what’s been calculated for the Fluoride ion alone, and this, just for the City of Ottawa, population approximately 900,000! About 35% of Canada’s population is still currently fluoridating their community water supply, with over 70 cities having stopped fluoridating since 1990, and more in the works... however, the remaining ones are having a very hard time breaking with the status quo; see the results of the work of cessation advocates across the country here: Would it not be wise to consider legal action against cities regarding the poisoning of the environment due to fluoridation of municipal drinking water supplies? I am available for consultation by phone, email or via Skype, as you wish. So we are looking for volunteers to help end this unproven, unsafe, unnatural, unnecessary and unethical fluoridation that uses an unregulated and unapproved chemical water additive. It’s not just for yourself, but for all residents of Ottawa. Because of all the damage the Fluoride ion can do to our bodies, it will continue to drive up our soaring health care costs, so think about it, we all pay for this foolish and dangerous practice in the end.

s we turn the calendar and look to a new year, we mentally review the past year’s accomplishments, the things we pushed aside that didn’t get done, our new relationships and those that were lost. We perform an analysis of what was, what served us and usually how we can improve on the many aspects of our lives where we believe there to be weakness. For many, this self-analysis can be a critical one, and it invokes a determination to ‘do better’ and ‘be better’.  The New Year Resolutions lists are created... How many of us do you think actually look back over the year and are at peace with their accomplishments?  How many are content in their relationships, are pleased with their bodies, their jobs, and where they are right here and now?  I doubt very few are actually content, and love themselves exactly as they are.  Very few have not created ‘lists’ to do better, do be better, and in doing so feel the need to strive towards a higher level of accomplishment in order to be pleased with themselves.  Our human conditioning constantly pushes us towards higher levels of personal achievement, of establishing ourselves in this everchanging world in which we live, and in striving to find or create the perfect relationships with our friends, coworkers  and family.  When we complete our review from the place of our human conditioning, we tend to look through critical eyes, through the eyes of self-judgement, and feel the need to ‘improve’ somehow.  We forget that life is a journey to be relished and enjoyed every step along the way.  We forget that we are so much more than our accomplishments or acquisitions.  We are, after-all, pure spirit living a human experience, not human living a spiritual existence.  Every single moment of our life has meaning and purpose.  We are after-all, eternal beings experiencing the human condition in physical form.  We are a Divine spark, a Divine child of GOD.  We are of source, of the light.  Our humanness is only a small


part of who we fully are. What we do with our time here on earth, is as we choose every step of the way.  It is up to us to remember our perfection and embrace every aspect of ourselves, learning and growing in light and LOVE throughout our time here.  Only by choosing to ‘un-plug’ from our human condition, and by truly loving ourselves here and now, exactly as we are, and by recognizing our uniqueness and strengths, can we find Peace throughout the year(s) ahead. When we truly love ourselves, we are no longer critical (of ourselves or others), and are content with what is at any given moment.  We recognize the blessings in our lives.  The selfimposed pressure of being ‘better’ dissolves.  The JOY seeps in, and we shift into a higher vibration.  We begin to see the miracles around us.  This shift in vibrational reality attracts more loving relationships into our lives, and more of what we are and project. So, instead of a ‘critical’ review, why not simply resolve to fall in LOVE with yourself this New Year?  Why not turn your list of resolutions into a list of what aspects of yourself and of your life you love most and are most Grateful for?  You may just find yourself inclined to eat better and get outdoors more, find the job that is more satisfying, and treat others the way you now treat yourself, thereby naturally attracting more harmonious relationships. And…you may find yourself letting go of people and situations that no longer feel right, that no longer serve the new ‘you’. Resolve to simply LOVE, and see what happens.

New Year Resolutions



he months of January and February are always difficult for people when it comes to following through on the many resolutions that were made holding a glass of champagne and doing the year-end countdown at midnight. As we put our bodies through this period of excesses, we come out of it feeling guilty and make these grandiose plans to change our lives! Unfortunately, many of us are stuck in this cycle of self-deception when it comes to taking action on these resolutions that we committed to and had the full intent of accomplishing. Then reality sets in after only two weeks of getting up at 5am to get yourself to the gym. You start to “miss” one day’s training. Then you miss another day, and another…until you are back in your old routine. I personally do not make resolutions at this time of the year because I have learned over the years that I too get caught up in this same cycle of deception. Because of this, I have shifted the period for making my resolutions out of the January time frame to the present. The present for me is any time in my life when the need to change something, to start something new or to go in a different direction emerges as a dominant thought. When that need for change makes it way to the forefront of my thoughts, I take the time to analyse

Once that new direction is decided, I commit to it 100% and start the process of change, regardless of the time of year I find myself in. Over the years, I have found that I am much more successful in working on my resolutions this way because there is no artificial pressure placed upon me. By artificial, I mean that feeling of guilt that takes over our emotions in early January and pushes us to make resolutions that we know fundamentally are bound for failure regardless of how hard we try. I am sure that you know what I am talking about here! Resolutions are great in getting you to make positive changes in any aspect of your lives. For me, resolutions are synonymous to goals and there is a process for attaining your goals that does work. The first thing you need to do is decide what it is that you want to accomplish, to attain, to get. The second step is that you must develop the feeling of wanting this new thing in your life. It has to be a burning desire deep inside of you. The final step is that you must take action to get what you want. By taking action you will launch this whole process of attaining your goals! Thoughts + Feelings + Actions = Results This is a powerful formula that will help you attain anything in your life. You set the process in motion by deciding what you want and then taking the actions steps that are required to get you there. If you still want to stick to your New Year’s Resolutions then by all means go for it! I encourage you to follow this formula and make the goals attainable. By making them attainable, you will not be disappointed if you don’t achieve them. Build on your small success until you have developed the habit of using this formula effectively. Once there, dream big and go for it! Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawa based Praxis Wealth Institute.

January 2014


Cosmic Counsel for January 2014 Aries (March 21- April 20) There is no doubt that this month and year begins with a bang, and you are revved up and ready for business. As an Aries, you are typically comfortable with the intensity in the air. You can harness its power, especially within the realm of career and social position. In fact this month you may sense that the waiting is over and what you desire is no longer beyond your reach. Embrace your fullest potential by seeing life’s challenges and opportunities from a higher perspective. Trust yourself, you will soar. Taurus (April 21-May 21) The New Year tends to bring to the collective a sense that we need to start fresh; this rings especially true for Taurus’. To begin anew consider discarding old ways of doing things, which is typically challenging for earth signs like you. Focus now more than ever on what your gut instincts are telling you. Perhaps this month you can engage in a personal initiation where you visualize yourself surrendering heart-first into your truth. Trust, kind Bull, that you are supported. Let Go and let God/ Goddess/Gaia. Gemini (May 22 – June 21) My apologies if this sounds cliché: There is an ocean of potential inside you, get ready to ride the wave. This New Year begins with intensity, for some this will be rewarding, for others depressing. The cosmos calls you to face yourself, shed your skin and experience renewal. Don’t be afraid to do your inner work with someone you trust, perhaps even exploring sexual healing. It is an ideal time to tune into psychic capabilities and take greater responsibility for your soul’s path. Doing your inner work this January will carry you forward into a promising New Year. Cancer (June 22- July 22) The year begins with Cancerians highly aware of their closest relationships and the work that lies ahead to allow them to deepen. Your ruler the crab is quite symbolic; the hard shell that you move through life with protects the tender and sweet person inside. Of all signs, you are most vulnerable to being hurt; this is why it is so important that you feel safe within your professional and personal relationships. This month focus on healthy relating especially on January 1st’s new moon, and the full moon on the 15th. If those relationships pass your tests, then allow them in. Those lucky ones deserve your trust and love.


Eve Mari Crete Astrologer Insightful and Inspiring Readings 819.457.1694 Leo (July 23 – August 22) After last month’s good times, January calls you to ‘rein it in’. Time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Considerable cosmic forces are supporting your efforts for self-improvement, work dutifully to heal the parts of you that need attention. Set your intentions yet leave ample room for Spirit to move through you. Near months end relationships will begin to demand your focus, therefore spend early January bettering your Self, so that you are whole, clear-minded and prepared to connect with others in healthy relationships. Virgo (August 22 – September 23) January and the New Year indicates a time for beginning a creative project. The cosmos supports you and calls you to build something that expresses your capable and talented gifts. It might be a business, something artistic in the classic sense, a project around the house, or even something you foster within a child. The message is that you have the resources and skills in you to create something lasting. It is time to take what you envision and make it real. Libra (September 24 – October 23) There are two new moons this month, which is rare. The first new moon on January 1st, can be a powerfully reflective time for you; indeed it is timely that you think about and integrate the emotional lessons you experienced in 2013. You gained strength last year and the momentum is building. You have the potential to draw from that strength and to experience a rewarding year ahead. The energy surrounding you on the new moon of the 31st will be liberating, proving that indeed you have earned the right to succeed. Scorpio (October 24 – November 22) In January your thoughts may be more intense than usual, it is a particularly important time to speak your mind. You will feel a great sense of release and satisfaction if you express yourself. You may also find that the people close to you will need your time, attention and your reliable guidance. If you are a student, writer,

researcher, or in communications in any form… the cosmos gives you a huge boost this month, you can be incredibly focused. Reach out and experience life, connect with people… butterfly it up! This will help bring you fulfillment and success this month. Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) Sometimes things take time. Last month your new solar year began creating in you a feeling of excitement. Now that the spark of rebirth begins to settle, take time this January to ‘take root’ and to nurture your self-esteem. Take stock of who you are and what you bring to the banquet of life. It is beneficial to ask yourself what you need in order to feel safe and secure. Once you are clear work towards it, and trust that what you desire will come to you when the time is right. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) “Whatever you think you can do, begin itremember the magic of boldness” Lisa Noble. Let these words be like a mantra to you as we begin the year. There is a lot required of you right now, tremendous power and potential. Even though you may come up against challenges and obstacles, be sure to draw from your inner reserve and climb that mountain, Capricorn. You are known as a mountain goat after all… accomplishing incredible feats with sure and steady steps. The key to truest success is to remember to take each step with love all along the way. Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) In order to make way for a rebirth, which begins for Aquarians on January 21st, this may be a time where you experience some degree of letting go and loss. This won’t necessarily be a loss of something in the outer world; perhaps it may be a long held belief or a dream. If you can accept the loss something better can take its place. The universe works in mysterious ways. Allow yourself to feel what comes up and do your best to go within and heal perhaps through meditation, movement or prayer. Pisces (February 20 – March 20) January begins with a great opportunity to focus on what you want for your future, and to commit to the work it will take to make it happen. Harness the potential now because near the end of January you may energetically retreat until your birthday. Until then, put the emphasis on working towards a future goal. Also consider taking time in January to connect with friends and like-minded people in your community. You may receive motivation and express a lot of creativity through these interactions.

Building your Resilience to Overcome Anxiety and Trauma


tress and trauma exist in everyone’s life. It isn’t a question of if, it’s a matter of when. The true question is how do we recognize and embrace the resilience within us, to cope with and overcome the burden that stress and trauma bring to our lives? Resilience is essential because it allows us to deal with changes and see challenges as opportunities. We’re more effectively able to recover from anxiety and trauma, and we gain a higher level of independence and improved self-esteem. We become very effective at managing our feelings and those of others, and inevitably this enhances our relationships. With resilience, a sense of purpose is ever present in our lives, and it’s possible to make decisions and set goals for a bright future. Not everyone’s story of stress involves PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). But for anyone dealing with mild levels of anxiety, all the way to trauma, there are strategies that can make life easier. The following is a heartfelt personal account of the impact of trauma, and a true example of resilience. PTSD has been a living hell for me. I have spent 38 years living through my reactions to trauma, trying to piece my own personal story together, wanting to create peace and self love. I was sexually abused which created a long list of childhood symptoms including bed wetting, nightmares, insomnia, numerous physical ailments, huge amounts of anger, poor concentration, over eating, fear of physicians and anyone in authority. A healthy sense of my body, well-being and innocence were taken from me. My sense of wonder, my ability to feel comforted, all gone. My list of adult symptoms is too long and complex to share. I functioned through it all. I have spent over half of my life in therapy, once I realized that sexual molestation isn’t supposed to happen, and trying to get away from the ongoing, unhealthy family relationships. Along the way I became spiritual and worked on healing myself through Reiki, NLP, meditation, self love practices and honouring my intuition. I haven’t been diagnosed with PTSD, but it existed my entire life. Fear has played a major role, trapped in the emotional walls of trauma, with a landslide of guilt, shame and an overpowering sense of unworthiness. People in my inner circle have no clue what PTSD is, and I have lost many friendships. I have had many


failed intimate relationships, looking for security that will never be there, wanting someone to love me enough to save me, to accept me as I am. I didn’t have healthy boundaries. Finding trauma support has been very difficult, and I chose not to take any drugs in my healing journey. Having someone listen, through years of therapy, has been extremely supportive, in a world fraught with denial and projection. Overcoming PTSD, finding myself, my truth, and spirituality, has become my sense of identity. Piecing the puzzle together has offered a sense of integrity and strength, learning to cope with not being normal, feeling normal, or reacting normally. I don’t have all the answers as PTSD is very complex. Each journey is very personal, awareness and recovery vary greatly, as does ones approach to healing. Shifts take place over time and you can’t force anything, but feeling safe and developing healthy strategies are vital. Learning self love is key, meaning self care and self acceptance. It takes courage to speak our truth, to create change and to become intimate with ourselves and others. These are some of the triumphs of living with ongoing stress, trauma or PTSD. I now know that I have the power to rise above and find the beauty in my life. Your story may be quite different as trauma and stress are the result of many causes and conditions. As we are all in a process of learning and renewal, there is much to discover in learning to cope through a holistic approach. This is the focus of our upcoming workshop, Building your Resilience to Overcome Anxiety and Trauma, to be held on Saturday, February 15. The day will offer information and provide a personal experience that will offer clarity and guidance. Details regarding the practitioners and course content are available at www. or 613-421-3138. Peggy’s Holistic Oasis may help guide you along your path of wellness, knowing that the best approach is unique to you.

Get Ready for the Year Blaise T. Ryan, R.TCMP, R.Acu Traditional Chinese Medicine of the Wood Horse By: Blaise T. Ryan, R.TCMP, R.Acu

Registered Member of the CTCMPAO - College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Ontario Specializing in:

Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.”   - Rumi


inter is associated to the Water Element and the Kidneys. According to Chinese Medicine, the Kidneys and Water are the root of Yin and Yang. Water is the beginning of the 5 Element Cycle. Like the womb, filled with amniotic fluid, slowly feeding and growing the baby within, it’s in the depths of Yin, inside the Water Element where we conceive creation. The Kidneys and the Water Element are associated with our Essence and our Will. The Liver and the Wood Element come next in the Spring. Wood is associated with Growth and Manifestation. Like trees, Wood must be nourished by Water in order to grow strong. As we recharge our bodies at night while we sleep, so must we recharge our roots and Essence using the Water Element in Winter. This allows us to more easily manifest our Will into the world and achieve our goals with the Wood Energy. Nourishing the Roots in Winter Prepares our Branches to Grow in Spring. Fear holds back our growth. Fear is the emotion that injures our Will and our Kidneys. Fear is the opposite of Love. Love is the force which penetrates obstacles, dissolves fears and empowers our Will. Fear is the anticipation of pain. Fear also acts like a magnet – attracting exactly what you are afraid of. Fear is illusion because it’s the anticipation of something that may or may not come. Fear causes our “Qi” to move downwards, freezes our Water, weakens our Will, and injures the Kidneys. Often our fears operate at a deep subconscious level, where we are not even aware of them. They manifest in behaviors and actions that sabotage our abilities to fully manifest our loving dreams. These fears are often buried under old physical and emotional traumas from our past that haven’t been healed. Circumstances that remind us of these past hurts will trigger our fears. If we are not aware of what is happening, these fears will move our behavior and actions until we find ourselves facing the exact problem or issue we wanted to avoid. Awareness of our fears is the first step to healing and transforming ourselves. Winter is the perfect time of year for deep inner reflection as it gives us easier access to our own subconscious. It allows us to penetrate more easily into our Essence and see what fears are holding our Will captive. We are coming to the end of the Year of the Water

Snake. The Snake is the animal that is closest to the Earth (yin) of the 12 animals. Water is the Most Yin of all the 5 elements. The combination brought us a very “yin” year starting with a long winter, wet spring and summer, cool fall, and the onset of a cold and snowy winter. The next Chinese New Year is the Year of the Wood Horse, which will ride in on January 31st, 2014. The Year of the Snake and the Year of the Horse represent a significant shift between the yin energy of the slithering snake to the yang of the galloping horse. This year, the shift will be BIG ! Wood represents growth and movement. It’s the growing yang energy. The Year of the Wood Horse promises fast change and great movement. Like a race horse galloping towards its destination. It can propel us forward in great strides and speed. However, a word of caution is that if you don’t harmonize your Will and free the blocks of Fear from your heart, the Year of the Wood Horse can feel more like riding a bucking bronco ! That’s why it’s crucial to use this winter to heal your Kidneys, your Essence and strengthen your Will. Bring awareness to the Fears that stop you from your desires and goals. And nourish your Yin energy by taking it easy, going slow, and building your Essence through internal reflection and moderate activity. Avoid emotional turmoil and accept the way things are. Focus your energy to get more clear on your goals. Plant the seeds to the dream you want to manifest and nourish the roots in your mind. Great change is coming just around the corner with the Wood Horse. The direction of this change in your own life will be dependent on how strong your Will is to maintain the direction of the Wood Horse. Blaise T.

ow many of us have learned how to communicate effectively? Are you able to share who you are, what you want or need from a place of your core and power? We only communicate as well as we have been taught. If our parents spoke to us with anger, we learned to speak to others with anger. If we were not listened to when we spoke, we learn not to listen. In reality effective communication is very complicated. Eighty percent of our communication is how we say things, our body language, inflections and energy behind what we say. If you are fearful when you say something then the fear holds more weight than the actual words. As we grow up each of us pick up different perceptions and carry baggage, which creates unique views of the world. From this unique place we decide what we wish to convey to another person. With the filters of our perceptions we choose the words to use to send the message to another person. What happens when we send this message to the other person? Before the message is received it is filtered/ decoded through the receivers filters/ baggage. This can mean the receiver hears something very different than the intended message sent. The history between the sender and the receiver also impacts the reception and interpretation of the message received.

Being truly heard validates what we are saying as well as who we are. We often do not need someone to agree with us. We need to know that someone can hear what we are saying from our perspective. Validation validates who we are. e.g. Last year your husband missed your anniversary. He decides to take you out this year. He is all excited and he says “I am taking you to someplace special this year to make it up to you,” You presume he knows what you like and do not ask any questions. You arrive at an inexpensive restaurant. There are only the two of you there. He is an introvert who is very frugal. You are an extrovert expecting something special. Neither of you have taken each-others point

of view into consideration nor have you checked in to make sure you really heard what was being said. No one is happy. It is easy to see how communication is much more complicated than stringing together a few words. What are some of the filter, perceptions that get in our way? Birth order, introversion and extroversion, our parents, religion, teachers, community etc. influence our perceptions as well as every experience in our lives.

Want To Feel Good? Move Your Body!


n the cold, long, dark days of winter we can have a tendency to want to hibernate spending more time inside and alone forgoing the outdoor activities that bring us so much vitality and joy during the warmer and sunnier weather. This can result in isolation, depression and listlessness. If we want to feel happy and healthy, it is important to keep moving the body even when we are tempted to crawl into bed under a warm blanket. Dancing is a great way to keep moving and to help us connect with others. It can also be a powerful tool for self-healing by enabling us to free up blockages and create a sense of freedom and spaciousness. It can also enable us to release negative patterns, awaken buried parts of ourselves and experience joy. In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, one of four questions they would ask you was “when did you stop dancing�? As children, we moved and expressed spontaneously and freely. Somewhere along the way we were taught to sit still and behave. We learned to curb our natural impulses to move and express in order to fit into the cultural norms dictated by parents, teachers and later, bosses. As a result, our natural inclination to move and express became suppressed which can result in emotional and physical pain including depression, isolation and listlessness.

Energy Maintenance Channelled by Lisa Virtue

Maintaining your energy field is very important. We all have an energy field that makes up who we are here. Throughout our days we have a variety of experiences and encounters. Our energy fields collect debris, in a sense. We can pick up energies from others and take them into our field unwittingly. We can also create our own dissonance, or blocks as they are referred to in energy healing. Blocks come from learning as we grow. They come from beliefs formed. They are our issues which we wish to resolve. As many of you have experienced through healing procedures such as the energy healing Lisa Virtue provides, you can clear these blocks through a variety of methods. Healing their source will transform them permanently. But what can you do about the day-today collection? You can develop a home practice for yourself of methods to release and shift that which has come in the day. You have many resources for individual maintenance: meditations, self-energy clearing visualizations, showers help to rinse the aura. Maintaining emotional integrity with positive reflection and thoughts; keeping yourself well grounded and centred in your own energy field – not shooting out things to others, but being a self-contained being; drawing in Universal love, rinsing yourself with it there are many ways indeed. You may also wish to visit Lisa on a regular basis to deal with the issues that help attract the more day-today energies. By healing the larger energy dissonance or blocks, you find that similar energies no longer attract to you. We hope you see that regular clearing will help you resolve things more and more, will bring you into your state of grace and joy more frequently. You have had many lifetimes to accumulate issues. You may not be aware of all of the things that are bringing dissonance into your experience. While initial healing sessions will absolutely bring you significant relief and shifts, a regular plan of cleansing healings will continue your journey to recognizing your true, pure self everyday. Your journey to healing, to truth, to joy in every moment, this requires a frequent action of resolving the dissonance you’re holding. So build a plan for yourself of not just maintenance but steady growth. For each healing will bring you into more of your amazing self. You will find great blessings, coincidences, transformations taking place in your life for which you will find you are thanking the Universe. For it almost seems too good to be true that you could be on such an exquisite journey of finding yourself more and more, happier and happier, more fulfilled, more in your bliss. So, we recommend you find or learn ways to assist yourself on a day-to-day basis and schedule a regular program for tackling the larger blocks and you
