A NEW YEAR… Resolve to Love

A New Wave of Spirit Communication O

ver the past several years there have been an increasing number of people who are becoming awakened to their own psychic and mediumistic abilities. During the past hundred years advances in spiritual sciences have really defined the differences between “psychic” reading and “mediumistic” reading. With many advancements in techniques of connecting with and communicating with Spirit there have been great lines drawn in the sand that have brought a great amount of duality and polarity to spiritual practice separating mediumship readings from psychic readings. Mediumship for many years was defined solely as the communication with departed human souls and then expanded again to include other types of divine beings whereas psychic reading was defined as the sensing of non-physical information often about events within the physical world. These classifications originated at a time where conventional sciences were making great advancements as well in the qualification and quantification of all different aspects of the physical world and so the pioneers in the spiritual, or transpersonal, arts and sciences began to adapt the same process of research. This was a necessary step in

beginning to understand the nature of Spirit at an academic, theoretical and philosophical level. The drawback here is that this categorization of different experiences of consciousness had left little room for a gray zone and it’s often the gray zone that holds the most potential. This lead to a false perception that bringing through people’s loved ones was somehow an elite extension of psychic phenomena. In reality the refinement of both skills are necessary for healing through message work as mediumship happens using our psychic senses and both styles of readings are truly one and the same as all is guided by Spirit. The true nature of mediumship is not as supernatural as it is natural. We are innately divine and connected multidimensionally with all aspects of divinity around us. At a subconscious level we are in constant communication with the Source. The process of mediumship development is becoming consciously aware of this connection and asking questions that lead to an understanding of how you are already receiving divine communication. If we can understand the Source and the Spirit as aspects of our everyday physical lives, we can then understand that the spark of Source within all things is in constant communication with all other places that Source exists - within all dimensions. The importance of developing psychically for the process of mediumship is to train our senses to interpret the communication that is already happening. The basis of providing a reading through mediumship is adding intention to receive and perceive on behalf of somebody else. Those born with a natural awareness of this process often have these experiences happening right from their younger years and for them the development of their natural gift can emerge more easily into the talent and skill of healing through the giving of messages from Spirit. The most interesting thing about the last few years is that huge amounts of people are beginning to have profound experiences and at a global level this has created huge strives forward in this work. The amount

of development that would go into the refining of spiritual gifts over a given length of time has reduced and people are able to open up with a lot less effort. There is no doubt that the world is beginning to change (again) and the process of ascension is shifting. In 2012, and the years leading up to it, people experienced huge physical, mental and emotional changes and people began talking about “symptoms of ascension” which were very characteristic changes that sensitive people were going through. The changes now are seen as energetic and people are easily sensing shifts and changes in the world’s energetic atmosphere. With that shift has come huge expansions of understanding as very high vibrational energy integrates into what has always been a very physically inclined world. Throughout this shift the previous lines that were drawn between different types of experiences have become blurred allowing for more of a gray zone. What mediumship was classified as for many, many years is beginning to expand to include more than just communication with passed on loved ones steeped in survival evidence (the details about somebody’s life on earth that prove that the human spirit survives death). We are rapidly accepting all types of divine expression that go towards the healing of humanity, both individually and collectively, as authentic spirit communication which is in turn yielding even more profound experiences of healing and oneness. The beautiful thing about this is that the more commonplace these phenomena become the more we can heal from them and the more that people can become awakened as all people, by our very human nature, are mediums. Through the process of mediumship we are bringing heaven onto earth through our gifts and the service that we provide and with the beautiful expansions and advancements in human consciousness our earth is changing and with that change comes a new wave of healing as we awaken to the ever-expanding possibilities of Spirit.

Other modalities in which I have experienced Oneness are: Kundalini Yoga, Grofian Holotropic Breathwork and Ericksonian Hypnosis. All of these practices have a common thread. They enable a person to become “Heart-connected” and stay in a state of bliss or agapé. They are all good ways of “re-charging” our Soul battery and learning how to STAY fully charged. I truly wish and hope that you experience this wonderful state before you leave this planet! Namaste............

How to Embrace New Chapters in Your Life Life is full of changes. Sometimes, the changes occur when you least expect them, and you end up with your routines being thrown out of whack. That’s how it often is when new chapters are opened up in your life. You might get caught by surprise, and immediately get flustered because you’ve never dealt with being in that situation before. The good news is that you can approach these life events with positive techniques that keep you from feeling intimidated by them. Follow these strategies to not only deal with, but also embrace, these new chapters in your life: 1. Have an open mind. Expect the best scenario instead of the worst. Remind yourself that this event might bring with it all sorts of positive spins on existing situations that challenge you. This new chapter in your life could be the answer to your reaching previously unattainable goals. 2. Be courageous. Fear can keep you from achieving what you want out of life. It can turn strong men weak and result in disappointment, sadness and humiliation. If you picture living a life with those negative attributes, you’ll start to develop the courage to prevent that from happening. So, face the unknown with every ounce of courage you have! 3. Take one step at a time. By far, the easiest way to approach any situation in life is to break it down into its smallest parts. When looking at the big picture of your new chapter, it might seem mammoth and insurmountable. But if you take a minute to dissect it, you’ll realize it’s a lot easier to take smaller bites and even savor the taste of newness.

4. Be honest. If your new chapter in life is something being presented to you by someone else, be honest about feeling intimidated by it. If you’re expected to tackle it and come out victorious, you definitely don’t want to disappoint! It’s better to state your position up front because people respect honest even when it doesn’t favor them. New chapters don’t have to be scary at all. You’d be surprised how perfectly capable you are of taking things head-on and relishing in the goodness they can provide. Give yourself the chance to experience fulfillment; use these strategies to embrace new chapters like you already know the outcome!

Healing at a Time of Uncertainty


t is a time of uncertainty and we need a strong foundation and a calm presence that is grounded to face this uncertainty. The world events (especially the recent elections by our southern neighbours) have triggered a lot of restlessness. I see this discomfort in my family, friends and clients. In a way, this global reactivity is the manifestation of bigger, deeper symptoms – on a bigger scale – from the ones we feel individually. We each carry a story and it can generate stressful physical or mental reactions. The solution, whether globally or individually, starts by people who take the time to see, be present, and acknowledge what they feel. We can truly help ourselves by recognizing our own history, our path and current situation as a first step. In this way we are participating in our own process. The essence of this process is to first start developing inner strength – to heal our past and recognize that much of it may not even belong to us. This past could be the effect of pain experienced by our ancestors, or something that is passed on, and that we can let go of. Healing and transformation starts by staying present with our symptoms and feelings. Bypassing them may be temporarily comfortable, but it does not lead to lasting changes. First notice your feelings for they carry messages and are the doorway to healing. Then gently acknowledge your feelings or even lack of, as it may start with a sense of feeling simply disconnected

or numb. This enables us to be present in our state, and develop a stronger base, an ability to stay calm and grounded. The ability to accept is the first step to transformation. Then the journey to heal and transform thoroughly begins. In my sessions with you after this healing conversation we get to the hypnosis part. At the end of each session I record the hypnosis part, which is based on your needs and objectives. It is wonderful, positive and helps empower the process. I email it to you afterwards as I believe that it is helpful to listen to at home, if one wishes to do so. We can help ourselves, more than we know.

The Evolutionary Method Mastery Program: A Three Month Program To Radically Shift The Way Your Body-Mind Functions “All disease begins in the gut.” - Hippocrates After having had a chronic, digestive, autoimmune illness for nearly 20 years, I completely healed my “incurable” disease and am now living with incredible health, vitality and joy. I have found what works and what doesn’t; what the body and mind need to heal and what prevents that healing. This program is like a fire starter that, with your commitment, can completely change the way your body functions. In this program, we draw upon the wisdom of Evolutionary (ancestral) Diet, movement and socialization in order to get your body back to a state of vibrant health and wholeness. This Personal, One on One Program Is Right For You If: • You’ve had persistent digestive issues (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, unexplained or hard to get rid of belly fat, ADHD, chronic skin issues (eczema, acne, psoriasis), ear infections, Autoimmune Disorders) • You want to see what the body is capable of doing when you give it the proper tools, diet and nourishment • You want to help your body at the root of the dysfunction, rather than suppress your symptoms • You’re tired of feeling tired all the time and are ready to step into the fullness of your being This program requires a 3 month commitment from you. It requires you to be open to finding out what emotional triggers you are still dealing with (by which your body has been compensating through illness or discomfort). It allows you to see exactly what your ideal diet looks like and what your body needs to be properly nourished. This program gives you every single tool that you require to recover and move into a thriving and healthy space. Specifically, during the 3 months you will learn and receive: • Exactly what foods are helping your belly and which foods are hurting your belly • A bio-individual diet and meal plan that allows you to shop and prepare amazing meals that will finally nourish your body and mind • Discover what your cravings mean and how to see them from a different perspective so you can heal them • A detoxification program to eliminate the burden of heavy metals and environmental toxicity • Learn about the importance of ancestral movement and find out what kinds of movement best suits your body type • Delve into how your social connections are feeding you. Are they leaving you hungry or happy? • How your past traumas and wounds may still be playing a role in your body and how to let them go Our work together incorporates nutritional and energetic strategies for the whole body-mind. As an intuitive, I am often able to see what is going on behind the scenes. Powerful energetic techniques can help to heal old traumas and wounds that are still hindering your physical and emotional freedom. I invite you for a FREE 20 Minute Discovery Session. During this session, I learn a little bit about you and you learn a little bit about me. We see if we jive together and I fill you in on what our work together would look like. I invite you to come and see what’s possible for your life!

This Is Your Time To Thrive:

How The Evolutionary Method Mastery Program Can Heal Your Body & Nourish Your Soul


odern living has brought us a myriad of conveniences. It’s also introduced more chemicals, toxins and unhealthy food than any other time in history. To top it off, because of our convenienced, fastpast world, we’re also pretty stressed out. But we don’t have to live with modern-world consequences and illnesses. We can nurture our bodies and minds in ways that set us apart from the masses of stressed out, dis-eased sufferers. As a body intuitive and seer, our work together zeros in on nutritional deficiencies and emotional turbulence so that they can be healed. We work also with ancestral diet in order to bring your body and mind back to its default setting: Vibrancy. We were meant to thrive and live with freedom. We were meant to eat certain macronutrients. Our bodies want to move in a certain fashion. In fact, they’re literally aching for it. After two and a half million years our genetics became accustomed to eating wild game (and their organs), fish, seafood, plants (and lots of them), fruit and nuts and seeds. According to Loren Cordain, PhD, a professor and author of The Paleo Diet, “Although evolution is an ongoing process for all living people, their genome is a result of past events in the generations of humans who came before them. Only 330 human generations have come and gone since the development of agriculture. Before this time, all humans on the planet made their living as hunter-gatherers. Although a number of genetic changes have occurred since the agricultural revolution, the majority of the human genome has resulted from the environment of our hunter-gatherer ancestors and earlier.” What does this mean for us? Put simply, it means that our bodies and brains are not recognizing the foods that we’re putting into them. An example of this would be refined sugar. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors may have gotten handfuls of ‘sugar’ in the form wild blueberries or raspberries, when they were in season, a month or two out of the year. We, on the other hand, eat sugar with most meals, and then in between meals. Not only is this sugar a far cry from the wild berries that our ancestors consumed, but it’s highly refined, genetically modified and wrapped up in chemical-laden, food-like products. Our genetically predisposed bodies can only handle so much foreign matter. After a while, they’ll start to rebel. To add to all of this, we live with non-stop distraction. Our smart phones, tablets and even our watches have us jumping and hyper-responsive. And we’re just not shutting down.

They thrive. They think well. They move better. They look amazing. Healthy bodies beget sound sleeps; sharper brains; happier emotions; a sense that we can do anything. We can learn why some of us feel that we need distraction from ourselves and learn to get comfortable in our own skin again. We can calm down, be with ourselves and love our own company.

ne of the great discoveries made by humans in modern times has been how to transform electricity into radio waves. This has been a game changer in how humans communicate with one another either by sending voice, videos and now data via this invisible thing called “frequencies”. At a push of a button, we can interact with people in all parts of the world and even in space. Frequencies are all around us. The Universe is constantly “transmitting” to us all the things that we desire and ask for. It is always saying “yes” to your requests as outlined in the article that I wrote last year about the 6-inch-long black feather that I had asked for. Within a week of asking for it, the feather showed up in my life…much to my amazement. Although I had a deep knowing that it was going to show up I was amazed as to how it manifested itself into my life. As this new year unfolds in front of us, I would urge all of you to pay attention to what you are asking for. If you are constantly complaining about the missing things in your life, the lack of joy, money, friendships, the ideal job, etc., you are actually “transmitting” a negative thought to the Universe and it is responding by sending you more/less of these things. Tune into the Frequency of Abundance. Start living in a world of abundance by saying this powerful phrase: I am so happy and grateful now that (fill in the blank). This will activate the abundance frequency within you and will bring you a step closer to achieving your goals and desires. Dare to Dream and have a great year!

Our World is Burning


y grand-nephew James was recently celebrating his birthday, yet he felt awful and very sad about being nine. He wished he could stay five years old forever. When asked why, he replied that if he could stay five then the Earth would not explode. His lips quivered and the tears welled up in his large brown eyes. He said, “I don’t want to grow up and live in a world that is burning.” In the silence that stretched between us I wondered what to say. I could not say that everything will be OK, that my generation will fix things. He was much too intelligent for such placebos. So I spoke to him about the mindfulness community I created in 1997 – Pine Gate – and the deliberate steps taken for planetary care. We simplify, make do with less, share and adapt. Our intent is to create environmental leaders and that includes him. “Why not become a leader for your generation?” I asked him. He thought about that intensely and asked what else did Pine Gate do? I pointed out that Pine Gate encourages Voluntary Simplicity and Community Ethics as a way of life. We start with the Earth. Our organic garden produces an abundance of vegetables, apples and flowers that are shared with neighbors and community members. The idea behind Pine Gate is to foster a strong cadre of people in Ottawa to make a difference for the betterment of society and the Earth Mother. Women are in the forefront of this endeavor. They are the heart that holds the living waters and that heart is the dynamic epicentre that leads to effective action. That is how we

Our focus is on mindfulness in schools, city environment, teens at risk and on the empowerment of women. I admitted to James that I am blown away by the results, for at the local level there are great women who helped make things happen. I told him that I have written elsewhere that the present millennium is the century of the daughters, not so much as a gender separate thing, but as attributes of a holistic, nurturing presence of mind. James was taking it all in. He knew instinctively that major changes were needed. I intimated that when enough of us change, then we will be in charge.

Are You Choosing Courage?

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. e are living in a time that calls for our courage. This is a beckoning to our hearts, not our minds. Courage wells from a deep commitment within to create expansion. It does not involve any pushing, only the trust of Divine support through and through. Courage is often misconstrued. We tend to think of needing to find courage for formidable circumstances, Yet, consider that courage is really just allowing the Divine Self to express through our form. It is our foundation, our integrity with truth. When faced with a seemingly insurmountable experience we have choice. Our fears will also always take us to our courage if we see the healing opportunity. We can choose to fall victim to the enormity or complexity of what appears to be real, or we can let this falsity fall away as we align our consciousness with our limitless magnificence, the vast field of all possibility at one with All That Is. This is when our heart radiates Light and brings us into an experience of ourselves as powerful. Our courageousness, our creative intelligent Spirit, rises into splendor and returns us to our freedom. To live authentically is a courageous act in this world. To go within and face our shadow and pain that has imprisoned us personally, and all of humanity, is courageous. To know the truth of this planet and its many shortfalls, and still take responsibility to be fully

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How can we enter into the life of selfdiscipline?

SRI CHINMOY: A disciplined life comes from constant practice. Practice means patience. Slowly, steadily, we have to discipline our life. In our ordinary human life, we know that we are doing many things wrong. If we want to conquer them all at once, we shall simply break. We have to have a real inner will, or willpower, to conquer them slowly and steadily so that the body will not revolt. A disciplined life can come from only one thing and that is aspiration, our inner cry. When this flame of aspiration rises towards the Highest, it illumines everything around it which is dark. The higher our aspiration goes, the greater and more fulfilling is our life. We cry as human beings for name and fame, for many things. When we cry for outer things, sometimes we get them, sometimes we don’t. But we do not cry for the one thing which is of paramount importance, and that is God’s inner Wealth. What is that inner Wealth? His inner Wealth is Divine Fulfilment, Divine Perfection. If our inner cry is sincere, we will see that always fulfilment dawns. At any hour, that inner cry reaches God, and God is bound to fulfil that inner cry. If one wants to discipline himself, if one is dissatisfied with his loose life, and if he feels that from a disciplined life he can have real fulfilment, perfection and satisfaction, then God is bound to help that particular sincere seeker. So it is only with our inner cry that we can have a self-disciplined life. If there is an inner cry, then nothing on earth can be denied. No fulfilment can be denied to an individual who has an inner cry. We are all imperfect. No human being is perfect but our aim is to be perfectly perfect. This perfect perfection can only come from self-discipline. With self-discipline we can get the inner wealth of self-discovery, and selfdiscovery is the only worthwhile discovery.

am honored to respectfully share this tribute to Rev. Dr. Louis Richard Batzler (1922-2016), who I contacted in 1980. Richard was a serene, selfless and considerate person, who cared and had love and compassion for others. He made a significant difference to my personal development during my transformative spiritual journey. Richard was educated in the USA and received his MA and PhD degrees in History, and also graduated as an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. His ministry included many roles, such as a pastor of churches, chaplain in colleges, hospitals and hospices; teacher and counsellor; and, service roles in industry and federal government. He was a Past President of two notable interfaith organizations: Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship International, and its academic affiliate - The Academy of Religion and Psychical Research. Richard was also the author of 11 books; a poet of about 1,500 poems (published after 1995); and, a truth-oriented researcher who produced numerous journal articles, book reviews, and audio-cassettes which dealt mainly with the spiritual life, health/healing, suicide, death and grief. Obviously, Richard was a very busy man. When I first contacted him, I was going through a very difficult spiritual journey, since I was having an intense and prolonged kundalini energy experience (196889). I desperately appealed for help to many clerics of different denominations and health professionals (psychologists and psychiatrists). Richard, however, was the only non-judgemental samaritan who listened to my plight and helped me to survive. He saved my life, and kindly treated me thereafter as his own son. In 1990, I created Spiritual Frontiers Canada (SFC), an open-minded educational forum to explore the frontiers of religion and science. Without Richard’s assistance, however, SFC would not have lasted for too long. SFC prospered because he fully supported my initiative, by sending me boxes and boxes of books/materials, which in turn contributed to SFC’s development, promotion and success. Richard travelled from North Carolina to Ottawa Ontario twice to present public talks/ workshops to SFC members. He counselled me over the years about my research on “Truality”(www.truality. ca), up to the remaining months of his life. He also did all this without any thought of financial reward. In addition to helping me create SFC, Richard made a difference in that because of his thoughtful and sanguine advice, I was able to lead SFC successfully for about a dozen years. One indicator of the success involved was that during the 1990s, over 10,000 persons attended

From the Kitchen to the Cosmetic Counter


ogurt (unflavoured) is considered very healthy for the body as it is an excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium along with numerous vitamins and minerals while being low in calories.It also has a lot of skin benefits! Because it contains live culture along with lactic acid (helps hydrate the skin), zinc and other minerals and enzymes in it, your skin will be glowing after use. To make a natural scrub at home with yogurt, mix two tbsp. of yogurt with 1 tbsp. of oats. Exfoliate your skin with this mixture in small circular motion rinse and pat dry. Apple cider vinegar (ACV)is amazing both inside the body and out. When used as a hair rinse, it will balance the acid mantle on the scalp (the acid mantle helps protect the scalp against infection), which can help with itchiness and dandruff. It also balances your hair’s pH.

SFC public talks, workshops and socials in Ottawa. Presently, SFC is still active, (www.spiritual frontiers. ca), and I continue to participate in its activities. Relative to my personal passion for music, Richard also made another much-appreciated difference in restoring my self-confidence that still continues. Although I was trained as a classical piano-accordianist for ten years, my zeal to play music declined during the kundalini experience, Richard enthusiastically encouraged me however to share my music again. As a result, I returned to and still actively musically play my happy piano-accordian to lead singalongs with those in hospitals, nursing homes, senior citizen retirement residences, churches, synagogues, veterans’ groups, and various ethnic groups. Overall, I have been doing so for over sixty years in about a dozen countries. I feel that Rev. Batzler was, is, and always will be the most genuine spiritually-minded person I ever met. In retrospect, I am still amazed that it did not matter to him what my religious background was, since he never asked me whether I was raised Catholic or Protestant. I am grateful that I was blessed by the Creator, who sent a remarkable angel in human form to be a role model of service to me when I most needed it.

On the skin, ACV helps with any sort of bacterial infection (include pimples). You can use it as an astringent, by soaking a washcloth/cotton pad in diluted ACV and applying it to your face. Or, you can simply dab it right onto blemishes to dry them out and heal them. It even reduces the pain of a sunburn! Everyone seems to be using coconut oil to cook with, but did you know its antibacterial properties make it great for skin care? It also is an excellent moisturizer for the skin, as it has a high capacity for retaining moisture. You’ll also smell like you’ve been on a tropical holiday! As a natural treatment for blemishes, coconut oil can be used as a mask. Simply steam the face (you can do this by putting your face above a bowl of steaming water with a towel over top to make a tent and retain the steam/heat) for a couple of minutes, then apply a thin layer of coconut oil, leave for a couple of minutes, and then wipe off. Coffee! Did you know that the caffeine in coffee can benefit your skin?! Caffeine actually has anti-inflammatory properties which can help with redness and inflammation of the skin. It may also help with dark circles under the eyes by reducing inflammation and puffiness, while making your eyes feel more awake. Caffeine also occurs in some teas, so a nice eye compress with some wet, cool tea bags may help your appearance and energy. Of course, if you are cooking with good quality oils, they can also be used ont eh skin. Vegetable oils contain a number of vitamins and minerals which can help your dry skin during these winter month. Apply olive oil, for example, on your skin as soon as you have lightly towelled off from the shower. You can even use it to remove makeup. There are a lot of other ingredients you may find in your kitchen cupboards which can have beneficial effects on the body- these are just a few suggestions. ©2017 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St in Centretown.

A New Year… Resolve to Love

By Barbara Simpson 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 ever-changing world in which we live, and in striving to find or create the perfect relationships with our friends, co-workers  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 self-imposed 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.

What I Will Do By Rupa


Wishingtree Yoga – Simply Yoga

his passing month I am in the hospital seeing my father suffering. At his old age he cannot speak. The functions of his lungs, heart, liver, kidneys and brain are all in decline. Without the nasogastric intubation and intravenous fluids he won’t be able to survive as he cannot eat or drink normally. Obviously he is suffering. Looking at him, I am not sure if I should thank modern medical treatments that keep his life going or blame this care that prevents him from a natural death. Everyone has to face death by oneself. But in the name of taking care of life, with proud science, we use science to play the role of life savior. Human being’s natural death becomes an extravagant hope, becomes inhuman. We believe that use of all the machines, all the tubes and medicines to keep patients alive is a nice way to treat a life. We forget that old age and death cannot be avoided. When no treatments are requested it will be regarded as discouraging and negative.

Rupa Manjari Devi Das 200H Traditional Hatha Yoga & 50H Yin Yoga Teacher Training What will I do if I am the person lying in bed waiting to die? Will I accept all these modern treatments? Will I have strength to accept death instead? I am not my father. I cannot tell if he wants to continue to suffer with treatments or to face death soon. I really hope that he can tell us clearly. But we never prepare for this situation until it’s too late. To know what to do when a fire happens, we will have a fire drill; to have a basic reaction to an emergency, we learn First Aid. To know how to face death, we need to study spiritual knowledge. Even if there are a lot of people who love me, are around me when I die, it is ME that has to leave everything I like to do and face death ALONE. It is ME who has to leave the people I love and face the unknown world ALONE. Am I ready? A fire might not happen, but death will happen to everyone for sure. How can I have a peaceful death and a happy life? Rupa Manjari Devi Das (Ivy) has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom. Her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat!

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


fter one year of the marriage, if normal adult men and women are not successful in their attempt to conceive, then it is usually regarded as a case of infertility. According to the statistics, more than 15% of both men and women are infertile and generally, one out of five families is suffering from infertility. The percentage of infertile men and women are increasing as the usage of environmental toxins, instant food, electromagnetic waves, and multiple stresses from a modern life increases. Common causes of infertility include ovulation problems, tubal causes, sperm causes, unexplained infertility, age-related factors, uterine problems, endometriosis etc. Oriental Medicine often compares process of conception to cultivation of plant. As a farmer must sow good quality of seeds in fertile field under appropriate climate in order to gain successful harvest, a healthy sperm (seed) must meet a healthy uterus for conception to be fulfilled. In Oriental Medicine, the causes of the infertility can be divided into three major causes; they are the functional imbalance of the internal organs,

the abnormality of physical structure and stress is considered the major causes of infertility. However, most of the infertile patients can be diagnosed with more than two combinations of the causes mentioned above. The Oriental medical treatment usually consists of acupuncture and extracted herbal medicine to correct the imbalance mentioned above. The treatment focuses on regulating the menses, balancing hormone levels, and if needed, treating cystic ovaries, uterine fibroids and endometriosis.

For male factors, treatments invigorate the sperm, raising low sperm count and motility, which will eventually produce better quality and quantity of embryos. In addition to treatments, life style consultation should be made to increase the chance of conception. Few examples for better life are: • Eating a healthy diet • Exercising in moderation •  Learning about the best time to conceive • Limiting caffeine and alcohol intake • Making lifestyle changes, such as smoking cessation Once this is achieved, the chance of conceiving on own or successful IVF will be greatly increased and your dream may come true.

PATHWORK: The spiritual and practical meaning of ‘Let go, let God’ by Natalie Morisset

My kitty wasn’t well. He of the usually voracious appetite had been eating less and less. I felt concerned, so I took him to the vet. An examination didn’t turn up anything obvious, and neither did lab tests. We could only guess at what was ailing him. I was frustrated and despondent. I felt I should be ‘doing’ more, but I didn’t know what. After a few days, I realized that because I felt this way, I just wanted the situation to go away. Yes, I knew that my cat was old; yes, I knew that eventually he would decline and die, and I realized that this decline might be happening right now. But beyond this intellectual acceptance of what must eventually happen and might even already be happening, I didn’t truly accept the current situation in my heart. I didn’t want to be at a loss for what to do. So I secretly resented the whole situation and wished it would go away. I was afraid of what it might ask of me. I felt stuck. Fortunately, I was in the process of reading Pathwork Guide Lecture 213, “The Spiritual and Practical Meaning of ‘Let Go, Let God’ ”, which reminded me that I was keeping myself stuck by insisting that the situation unfold differently from what was actually happening. Once I realized this, I had the opportunity to choose how I really wanted to be with this situation. I decided to let go of holding on to how things ‘should’ unfold, and I surrendered into how they actually were and whatever might come next. Immediately, I stopped feeling frustrated, and soon some ideas for next steps came to me. And I stopped seeing my beloved cat as the symbol of my frustration, and was able to truly see and love him, just as he was. This story may not seem like it is of great spiritual significance. But Lecture 213 tells us that “it is exactly in this ‘insignificant’ area that the key can be found to the confusions and conflicts which make it impossible to actually apply the great spiritual truths to your daily life.” The way in which I felt stuck around my cat’s illness is a beautiful illustration of the attitude that says, in the words of the lecture, “I can only be happy if so and so does thus and thus or if life responds in no other way than I determine.” According to this attitude, letting go of this insistence would mean to “have to settle for unhappiness and unfulfillment.” Why? Because this attitude implies a mistrust of God, of life. The ‘little ego’ is trusted instead, and used as a weapon against a negative vision of the universe.

It allowed me to be receptive to what was truly happening in the moment, and to my inner guidance. Such a leap of faith can be very difficult to even contemplate.

Quantum-Touch® Therapy:

Hands-on and Distance Healing

Breakthrough in Energy Healing

In Ottawa area serving Ontario & Western Quebec


Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach

Certified Quantum-Touch® Practitioner Certified Quantum-Touch® Instructor Associate Polarity Practitioner Certified Aromatherapist


ecently, I’ve been thinking about the part of my work that I don’t address often, and that’s when I hold the energy field of my client between my hands, and do what we call Distant Healing. In that way, I can work with clients across the world and they feel the energy, getting results often in more impressive ways than we do with hands-on sessions. I’ll begin with an experience, with a client several years ago. I had worked with this young woman, initially using Distant Healing, when I was made aware of her pain, when she was in her home at some distance from me, and was in considerable pain. She had fallen on a slippery floor at her place of work, and had broken her upper right arm, and had severely bruised her right hip and leg. I worked with her from here, at that moment, for 30 minutes, and she felt relief from the pain. I then went to work with at her home several times, and and then she called me one Saturday evening at about 6:00 pm telling me that she was on the floor, and could not move. I worked with her for 30 minutes, and when I spoke with her following that session, there was some relief from her pain, but it still really hurt and she couldn’t move. I continued to work for another 60 minutes, and then I spoke with her again. Again, there was a considerable improvement, and this time she was standing so I carried on until I went to bed, and agreed to speak with her in the morning. She had gone to bed without pain, and was simply feeling a bit of weakness in that right leg.

The most recent experience, started with a phone call from a woman in Toronto, who said that she had known about me, and that her husband was at the Emergency Department, suffering with some unknown condition, but causing him to see everything through a sort of fog, to speak unclearly, and to be unable to remember things clearly. So, immediately, I put down the phone and worked with him for 30 minutes. When she called me back following the 30 minute session, her husband was seeing and thinking more clearly and wanted me to continue. Later in the evening, I did another 60 minutes or Distant Healing, followed by a conversation, during which I was told that he was now at home and that the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong. I agreed to do two more session, over the next 3 days. And I haven’t heard from them since. This is what can happed with the part of my practice I call Distant Healing. I love this work, and having this capacity to affect change over space, is so amazing, that I’m always in awe when I get feedback from my clients. Aileen M.

Stopping gum disease and decreasing total body inflammation from gum disease Oral health means that the good mouth organisms dominate and crowd out the bad organisms cause oral disease. We have many new laser and nutritional strategies now to treat better the microbial pathogens associated with periodontal disease and dental infections. Bacteria create endotoxins and these inflammation-causing toxins are causing serious problems elsewhere in the body. This is the “oral health –total health” connection. The latest cancer theory is that toxins both bacterial toxins and chemical toxins cause cell inflammation and DNA changes that spark the rise of cancer when the body has the wrong food and a diminished oxygen level and immune system or cell self-defense mechanism. There are at least 57 research projects currently studying numerous different diseases that they think are partly or largely caused by oral microbes and their toxins. This is the latest paradigm shift to think “oralsystemic” disease connection. There is currently a revolution taking place in managing gum disease and the tools employed at our clinic place us at the forefront of this revolution. Leading edge technology such as the Periolase machine, plus the Waterlase machine, carefully done root planning, bite balancing, seed oil based anti-inflammatories and

If there are any periodontal (gum) problems we need to maximize your homecare and diet the use of the Waterpik, sulcabrush, floss, tongue scraping and do some intense cleaning. Then we will apply the wizardly effects of the 1064 nanometer Periolase laser gum therapy as the grand finale to get the gums in top shape and eliminate the gum pockets that have been charted. Orthodontically improving the upper and lower jaws and airway. Further how improving jaw to jaw and tooth to tooth balance and alignment is beneficial to your body and mind neurologically Today dentistry and orthodontics are changing to keep in step with the rapid developments in sleep and airway medicine. In fact, the O in Orthodontics should stand for Oxygen! In fact our lives are framed between our first and last breaths. Oxygen is the first and last food of life and it is for this reason that our clinic strives to coach our patients on how to maximize their airways. I have been told by yoga instructors that practicing deep deliberate breathing is a good habit. I believe this is true.

Dolphin Dentistry Oral Health is Now Essential for Total Health Call for a free consultation 613 234-5758 We have all seen children and adults who breathe partly or wholly through their mouths with their lips apart. This and snoring are symptoms of airway dysfunction and sleep disordered breathing. When the jaws, the airways and the breathing are dysfunctional then our bodies do not receive the full potential lifegiving oxygen that they crave and deserves. Don’t forget that cancer cells function on a non-oxygen-based metabolism. So connect the dots. Maximize your deep breathing practices. This modern airway compromise is strongly influenced by the under development of the upper jaw. In essence, today we are “losing face”! Why are human faces shrinking? There are about seven reasons why our faces are shrinking in size. Number one is a lack of trace minerals in our diet. We used to go from breastfeeding to consuming bone marrow to making bone broth. Now we do not breastfeed as much and we have forgotten about bone marrow and we almost never make bone broth based soups and stews. Further sugar and other non foods and environmental chemicals and other dietary contaminants are screwing up our body’s growth system and biochemistry.

joint causes a lot of local and referred pain in the entire musculo-postural-neurological system. Dentistry is governed by the trigeminal nervous system, which has the largest cranial nerves in the human being. Because the trigeminal nerves are the largest and most powerful cranial nerves, when they and all the muscles attached to these nerves dysfunction then we are the ones that suffer big time. With this aim of improving airway and neurological function we strive to normalize our patient’s airways and trigeminal neurology. Custom made orthodontic “JAM” appliances to grow better jaws, jaw joints improve the airways and to correct malfunctioning muscles. The lower jaw is usually misaligned when the upper jaw is not well grown or not developed to our genetic potential in our DNA blueprints.. The jaw cannot seat itself correctly into an under-sized upper jaw. This is why in the 1930’s Dr. James Costen (an outstanding ENT specialist) tried to tell the world that the jaws being displaced is a major factor in why we have some ear and sinus problems. Garbage in = garbage out Another important factor to consider is poor nutrition. The lack of essentials nutrients, vitamins and minerals can cause irreparable damage to gum, teeth and surrounding tissues affecting the Immune System. Dietary deficiencies can provoke disease. In summary diet and dentistry can impact your entire anatomical and physiological system. Bad oral health and poor food choices are a major detriment to any person’s holistic health. A better balanced diet and mouth will mean a longer and better life. Invest in your oral health by contacting us. Book a complimentary consultation today.

Numerology Forecast for January 2017


dd the day of your birth to the month of your birth. Then add the number 2 for the month of Jan. NOTE – If you’re final number adds up to double digits, add the two numbers together again until you get a single number. If you still have trouble, email me at 1. There are new opportunities in your face right now. Look for them! Be brave and take a leap of faith into this New Year. You could find a short term contact or job that will transform later in the year. Just do it! 2. Are you looking for love or perhaps a new business venture? Get serious as this is the best influence. Bait your hook and get it in the water ASAP. The year will start out slow but pick up later. April is key. 3. It might be tough to keep your head together and remain focused this month. First of all, finish the commitments from last year, then weed out the junk, and only then, take on more. Focus is the key word for you in Jan. 4. Give your accountant a shout to assist with a financial plan for the year. Left alone you might blow your wad on mindless pursuits. Make a decision to be smart about your finances now, so that you can take most of the summer off. 5. Did you factor in a bit of extra fun, last year? I sure hope so, because the fun stops here and now. This is a hardcore rebuilding year, on all fronts. What need fixing your life? Make friends with hard work and lots of it in 2017. Get serious and get focused on the jobs that have to be done. No health neglect. 6. Are you in transition period in your home or office life? There should be some really big changes coming, so hang on to your hat? Your life is in flux for the whole year, but these changes are in the area of “domestic things” in Jan.

7. It is time to get ready for a very, very busy year. You must place your focus on “YOU”, first. You will need mega energy to be there for everyone else for the balance of the year. Fuel up and prepare, now. 8. The perfect use of this year is to take a yearlong sabbatical and sit on a mountain, alone, so you could focus on “self healing”. I know that this is impossible to do, but you must factor in lots of “me” time, this year, or else. Ask yourself, “What needs fixing”? Fix it, now. Education or a job with a learning curve is perfect. Stay Zen all year. 9. Use this month as a period of major excavation. It is time to clean away the unfinished projects, chores and other poop on your path that you do not want to take with you into the balance of 2017. Do you have habits, attitudes, medical issues clogging your life? Remove the clog, now. It is full steam ahead in Feb., so get ready.

Our Basic 10 Step Protocol for Recovering Periodontal Health


e do the “TOP” (teeth, orthopaedics and periodontal) diagnostic and induction system that classifies Periodontitis, Gingivitis, Gingival Excess and Halitosis as mild moderate or severe. It also classifies Clenching, Grinding, Occlusal Trauma Mobility, Furcation involvement and Mouth Breathing on a scale of 1 to 10 as these are risk factors in gum disease.

4. We use systemic or topical antibiotics as indicated.

1. We teach the patient good home care and the concepts of how we are going use our ten-step program to stop and reverse the disease process. We teach using green tea and liquid coconut oil as a mouthwash and we can also use the coconut oil to brush our gums with our Sulcabrushes. We teach interdental brush cleaning from Oral Science using different gels ie. stannous fluoride 11% or the new Japanese product a gel for remineralization or oil of oregano in olive oil in a 1:10 ratio. We teach a good flossing method and the sulcabrush and the rubber tip as needed We teach the Dr. CC Bass, MD method of brushing and flossing. We recommend baking soda and salt or the Dr Paul Keyes technique. We teach flossing with the floss stabilized around the middle finger and the 2 index fingers to floss the lower teeth and the thumb and index finger to floss the upper teeth. Left thumb does the left side and the right thumb does the right side. We teach interproximal brush cleaning and bridge flossing with super floss. 2. We do detailed scaling and root planing to create a super clean tooth surface.

5. We adjust the bite to balance the tooth pressures using first carbon paper and then a t-scan to keep the posterior teeth contacts first or primary in the centric occlusion posture. We keep anterior tooth contacts very light in centric relation (CR) and centric occlusion (CO). We eliminate balancing and working side interferences. We even out marginal ridges and strive for a flat curve of spee. We eliminate primary and secondary occlusal stresses as much as possible. 6. We determine if the patient clenches (our muscles and exostoses exam shows this) or grinds (which is visible by seeing teeth wear and /or abfractions) then we create a game guard or a soft pivot splint as used by Dr. WB Leeds MD and Dr. W Mays DDS or a Dr. Farrar appliance or use a Dr. William Clark orthodontic twin block. Basically we use and design a jaw pillow or a night guard or a jaw positioner to prevent sleep clenching or bruxism from causing tooth-jaw joint trauma, muscle trauma or airway distress or periodontal ligament trauma. This CNC (Chronic Night Clenching) or CNB (Chronic Night Bruxing) can lead to wear, gum recession, bone loss and abfractions. This also might be cause to refer to their MD for a sleep study for Obstuctive Sleep Apnea or OSA. 7. We do the full LANAP protocol with the MPV Periolase to get at the microbes where they live. Thus we laser–zap the microbes in the infected sulcus. This is the best treatment of periodontal disease that exists on the planet today. In my over 9 years as a dental editor and over 45 years as a practicing dentist I have never seen a better strategy to control periodontal pathogens. If you are a patient then get it done. If you are a dentist then spend the 150k that it takes to get started. 8. We may re-contour or replace all old defective or decayed fillings and repair poor marginal ridges. 9. We close all open contacts. We make them wider and self cleansing.

January 2017


3. We teach how to nourish the body’s immune and healing system. We teach an eighty per cent plant source plus sprouts and seeds and seed oil diet. This helps fight Inflammation and the microbes with a healthy immune system. We also assess the basic diet and make recommendations for juicing and green, red or blue smoothies and more nutrient supplementation like liquid chloryphyl. We recommend liquid mineral supplements like liquid light by Sun Warrior or Complete by Pure Trim to add trace minerals to the healing program. We recommend a month on Soul and Core


which are seed and seed oil concentrates to maximize the immune system for the initial healing period. You may wish to continue with these supplements since Soul is an excellent mouth rinse to rinse and then swallow for total body recovery.

10. If there are mobile teeth. We splint together these loose teeth with flowable composite and the clear Ribbond Method. After the first few months of sanitive and non-invasive procedures procedures we consider options: A) We may continue do ongoing conservative therapy using steps 1 thru 10 OR B) We may plan to do more invasive procedures such as: 11. We may use the electrosurg or simple soft tissue lasers and/or the scalpel to do gingivoplasty or gingivectomy procedures. We may use different lasers such as the periolase 1064 nanometer laser or the iplus waterlase at 2790 and 990 nanometers or the cold laser lumix 2 at 810 nanometers as adjuncts to remove excess tissues, fight the intrasulcular microbiota or assist healing. 12. We may use flaps (#11 or #12 or #15 blades as indicated) to directly visualize perio defects, root planes, debride a defect and strategize bone grafting (gem 21s) or use a high-speed electric handpiece to reshape the tooth or furcas. 13. We may plan to graft soft tissue or hard tissue. 14. We may remove the tooth and plan a replacement strategy or no replacement or we may plan a prosthetic strategy 15. We may suggest orthodontics to decrowd compromised teeth to make homecare easier and create the incentive of more beautiful teeth or appearance to motivate the patient. 16. We may refer for a second opinion or continue with their consent to strive for their continuing to improve their periodontal health by working with our team. 17. Then we reevaluate and reevaluate constantly at each recall. 18. We repeat steps 1 thru 10 and place the patient on a 3-or 4-month recall-maintenance system and keep reviewing their curoprox system and their flossing and rubber tip tek. 19. We review their home diet and their supplementation strategy. We encourage them to become more compliant with the homecare, the recalls and the diet. 20. We strive to be their coach, teacher and support team and we all strive to keep improving our periodontal management skills.

Bowen Therapy for H Bowen Therapy For Concussion

Get Well with Bowen

Greatest discovery in health care

Avelia Manoukian

Certified Advanced Bowen Practitioner


Winter is the time of year when concussions often result from skiing, hockey, and falls on ice. Bowenwork/ the Bowen Technique is safe and effective, and can get you or your child back to work or school more quickly. Every practitioner listed on this page has been trained by the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia in the Concussion Protocol. For best results, it’s vitally important to address a concussion early, in the first week after the concussion, if possible. There are three reasons this gentle therapy gets results: 1. It releases muscle tension in the neck/shoulders that contributes to pressure on nerves and symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and tinnitus. 2. It addresses the entire body, including skeletal alignment and rotations in the neck and pelvis. 3. It works through the nervous system, stimulating the brain to heal.


Carolynne Doucette, BPhEd Certified Advanced Bowen Practitioner Web:

Adults with Concussions In the spring of 2016, Madeline McBride, Certified Bowenwork Practitioner, did a case-series study of six adults with long term post-concussion syndrome (PCS). That is, at the start of the study each adult still experienced symptoms two years or more after a concussion resulting from a car accident, fall, or blow to the head. Only one participant was able to work. The study found that every participant with long term PCS had muscle tension and skeletal misalignment which likely contributed to ongoing symptoms. Each participant received eight sessions of Bowen Therapy. Third party assessment by a nurse confirmed that Bowen Therapy significantly reduced symptom severity (up to 70%) in five of the six adults with long term PCS. After four weekly Bowenwork sessions, one participant stated: “I started being able to take the bus to and from a few appointments, and do my own groceries a few times. My energy improved as well as my ability to think more clearly, remember conversations, and navigate bus schedules/maps.” After eight sessions, the same participant stated: “Planning to reduce medication. Look and feel much better.”


Students/Athletes with Concussions Between 1996 and 2003, Craig Mattimoe, a Bowenwork practitioner in Menlo Park, California, USA conducted a study on athletes aged 15-29 diagnosed with concussion, and applied the Concussion Resolution Protocol. Out of 33 players treated, 90% of athletes were declared fit to return to play within 72 hours. All 33 players returned to play within the following week.


January 2017

Health and Well-Being In a similar practitioner study in British Columbia by Bowenwork practitioner Jenna Howe (, athletes in their teens and twenties fully recovered in four to nine Bowen sessions. Ottawa Testimonials “In January 2016, my 13-year-old son suffered a concussion. He had to limit his school and physical activities. This resulted in him experiencing symptoms of depression, lack of motivation, low self esteem and ability to cope with everyday life, even suicidal thoughts. He almost failed Grade 8. In September we started Bowen Therapy and within 3 weeks there was such an amazing improvement in his spirit. His sparkle had returned. He’s also doing amazing in Grade 9. He has brought up his marks and his teacher has commented on his positive attitude. Thank you!” KR, Dec 2016 “I fell and suffered from a concussion in January 2015. For the first five months following I tried a number of therapies, including pharmaceuticals, massage, chiropractic, acupuncture and physio. As time passed, I got more and more discouraged—my intestinal system didn’t like the pharmaceuticals and my central nervous system was just not able to deal with the stimulation that the bodywork therapies triggered, and I was not progressing. I was then introduced to a Bowen Technique professional by my massage therapist. The result was a calmer nervous system and slowly I made progress. It’s been two years now and I am almost full time back at work and able to get back to some of my social activities. I continue to see the Bowen practitioner as Rome wasn’t rebuilt in a day... but I am definitely progressing as a result of the Bowen—it’s now my go-to therapy when I have put myself in an environment that is over stimulating and triggers my concussion symptoms.” AG, Ottawa “I recently had a bad fall that left me black and blue and with a concussion. Bowen Therapy helped me return to normal quickly, gently and naturally. Thank you!” W.D, 2016

What Hair Can Reveal


e often send snips of patients’ hair off to a lab for analysis of trace minerals and heavy metals with interesting results… One woman’s report came back with radioactive metals. We checked the rest of her family and found the same thing. It turned out their house was on radioactive mine tailings! Another case of radioactive metal was in an 8-year-old boy whose favourite food was daily seaweed from the Pacific Ocean where Japan’s nuclear accident leaked radioactive waste a few years ago. In a 3-year-old hyperactive child who had a seizure, his hair tested excessive for most toxic metals: aluminum, arsenic, mercury, cadmium and others. His mother had dyed her hair during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Over the years we have helped him detoxify these poisons. No more seizures and better impulse control! Excess copper in a man’s hair exposed a deadly liver disease. Deficient lithium explained mental symptoms that abated when tiny amounts were given (we all need some). Zinc deficiency can be identified in a low immune system. Adrenal insufficiency can be seen in abnormal patterns of sodium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium deficiency can masquerade as excessive due to over-acidity. Low chromium can be related to hypoglycemia. An overall deficient test can be the result of insufficient digestive enzymes. Excess mercury and lead can be a cause of autoimmune disease. 30% discount Conclusion: hair analysis is a useful screening tool! on first consultation valid to January 31st, 2017

hen we think of healing most people take it very seriously, which of course makes sense when it is our health we are talking about, right? Sometimes it is that very seriousness that can hold us in our pattern of dis-ease. As a way to alter this pattern I like to incorporate humour in my massage therapy and coaching work as a way to assist in healing and to ease stressful situations. I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for 15 years and a body worker for 10 years before that. I have seen plenty of ailing bodies over that time and there was not one of them who did not benefit from a good laugh, especially if they were feeling anxious and in pain. Before I became a RMT I was in the film animation business for 20 years drawing and directing on animated shows that you may have grown up with like, “Scooby Doo”, “Inspector Gadget”, and “The Raccoons Series with Bert Raccoon and Cyril Sneer”. That background put me in good stead to be silly and see the world in a particularly funny way. I am interested in combining those elements into an 8 session course called, “Keep the Humour in Healing”. The course would be focused on two aspects at the same time. First, we would explore a variety of complimentary healing methods and secondly, to find ways to see the lighter side of the healing.

Some of the topics will be: • What kinds of body-work/massage are there out there? • What is meditation and how can I use it to heal myself? • What is energy work? • Can these healing methods fit with the medical model? • What are some ways to find joy in my life? • How can I tap into my natural creativity? The two hour evening course will include; a checkin, Laughter Yoga, demonstrations and discussions of healing methods, a mid session break with tea and snacks supplied by me, exploration of energy, sharing stories of our own intuitive experiences in a safe, non judgmental environment and possibly some meditation if the group is interested. I am facilitating the course, but I am interested to hear other people’s experiences. Add to all this lots of laughing and that will fill up the two hours nicely! I often hear people say they do not think they are creative. I strongly disagree with this statement. I think everyone is creative, but we have been taught that creativity only looks a certain way. This course will help you tap into your natural born creativity and it will be fun to see what that looks like. There is so much information, so many forms of healing it is hard to know where to begin. “Keep the Humour in Healing” is an opportunity to explore various healing forms, treatments, modalities and acquire an overview of what’s out there. I will be using my expertise as a RMT, Ortho-Bionomy practitioner and Integral Master Coach™ to help shed light on other forms of healing. It will be a fun opportunity to get together with other like minded seekers to investigate new ideas and have a few laughs as we go.

Thank Goodness for a New Year

Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, OM, Psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher, healer


s this year comes to an end I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief. 2016, being a 9 year, was, indeed, a wrap up year. It seemed like everything that could happen, did happen. Instability and chaos rocked the world from continent to continent, yet here we are still standing trying to make sense of it all and wondering what to brace for next. We have two choices as I see it. We can become a victim of the apparent chaos in the outside world thinking it has nothing to do with us and we are just the unfortunate recipients of bad fortune or we can claim our mastery and take control. When we do the later, when we proclaim our co-creatorship with God, we look at the world with different eyes. We no longer see a fear based, doom and gloom reality. Instead we see the beauty of life unfolding and we see the infinite possibilities open to us to create what we want. No question, our planet, as beautiful as she is, is in a dire need of cleansing-- just as each one of us is. Not only does our physical body need cleansing and revitalizing, but also do our thoughts, for it is with our

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 38 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-and-a-half-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 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

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. 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! The seminar will be held on Saturday, January 28, 9:30 am – 12 noon. If you are interested in attending, please send me an email ( and I will reply with the location of the seminar in downtown Ottawa. Better knowledge of family law? Now that’s a resolution to keep! Happy New Year, everyone! Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. 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.

New Year’s Resolution Written by Alexis Nicol Happy New Year!

Alexis Nicol


oday I’d like to share my New Year’s Resolution with you. Normally, I’m not the type of person to make and/or keep a New Year’s Resolution, but this year I’ve made one that scares me to my core and that I pray to fail. Yep, I really want to fail. Usually a resolution is one that you hope you will be successful at accomplishing; like losing weight, getting a new job, etc. Thinking about this I realize I feel so guilty when I fail to succeed and it certainly hasn’t done anything towards building my self-esteem or confidence. So, this year I am making a list of things I’d like to do but that I’ve been too afraid of doing because I might fail. I may not do them perfectly and I’ll probably do them wrong, whatever! If I don’t succeed the first time I will give myself a huge pat on the back because I tried, I actually will be taking a step at conquering my fear of failing. By trying and not being afraid to be humbled or look ridiculous I will have at the very least learned something; grown in wisdom, humility perhaps, maybe spiritually or just learned what is possible and Everyone deserves a calm, peaceful, side-effect free life. how I can improve.

Creating Abundance: Spiritual Secrets for a Successful New Year


hat do you think of when you hear the word “abundance”? Money? Love? A large circle of friends and family? While you can apply the concept of abundance to all of those aspects of your life, the essential meaning of abundance is that you are happy with who you are and no external event or situation—whether good or bad—can add or subtract from that happiness. Abundance is a way of thinking and living, even when you have less money, love, or support than you would like. Life delivers a continually changing set of circumstances. Living in abundance can give you a constant source of stability that isn’t based on external things, but you must change your perspective and believe in all the potential that lies within your reach. Abundance is a state of mind. It can’t be lost, taken, or bestowed on you. It is about what brings you joy and fulfillment, not about what you have. The key essence of true abundance is happiness. The beginning of a new year is a time of great opportunity; a most important time to plant seeds for

the future and to let go of the past and be inspired about the possibilities of the future. True abundance is much more than financial wealth and physical comforts. True abundance includes your health, your relationships, your emotions, your intelligence, your spiritual journey, and every aspect of your life. Financial abundance can be lost, but true abundance can never be taken from you. True abundance brings happiness and joy. If you suffer from lack in any area of your life, you do not enjoy true abundance. You will not have true happiness and lasting joy. Learn the spiritual secrets behind true abundance. Align your thoughts, speech, activities, behaviours, attitudes, and beliefs with true abundance. Release lack in your life and maintain the greatest flourishing and success with true abundance. True flourishing and abundance begins with love, joy, and inner peace. Bring profound healing and transformation to release past pain and bring Divine light into your heart and soul to bless the New Year.

Raise your LOVE and HEART Frequency!

Do you wish to find love? When we transform our thinking and feel ourselves as beings of LOVE, we start creating new experiences. Energy moves. How do you tap onto the power of LOVE, nourish our light and bring out our most loving qualities such as creativity, imagination, kindness, love, sensitivity, friendliness, confidence? Practicing conscious presence via Yoga, Meditation and using Specific Tree Essences and aromatic sprays bring out our natural states and at the same time profound healing at an emotional and soul level. Healing wounds we carry from loss, grief, rejection, disappointment, or neglect is a first step. Some wounds may go back into early childhood and be carried through life. The essence “Healing the Heart” envelops us in a gentle soothing energy to get beyond the emotions possibly preventing new experiences. As we use Healing the Heart, we begin to trust and regain the courage to open ourselves to love and sharing our heart. It is a soothing balm for the heart and, used over time, it brings trust and peace to the heart. Another delightful vibration is in using the Soulmate Spray. There’s a magical synchronicity that can happen when we use this spray. It attracts the Soulmate energy we need, and, if we are ready, it may even bring a partner. It has been also shown to enhance relationships. The Soulmate Spray is designed to help us realize the yearning of our heart, to love and be loved, to find that very special person in our life. As we use it along with the Healing the Heart Essence and Spray, feelings of loneliness, loss of hope, loss of confidence in self and others, and discouragement are transformed. Our hearts open heart, leading to loving relationships.

Sexual Abuse by Laurie Fraser Recently, I worked on a woman who was sexually abused by her father ages 2 - 9. Mary Magdalen stood across from me and we worked on “Annie” together. I saw her lying under deep water. I unplugged the bottom like a tub and it drained tears and sadness. When the water was gone, I saw a little girl - pale, naked except for dirty panties. Mary Magdalen told me to cover her. “Not a dress,” I said, not wanting her to be accessible. Mary Magdalen said, “Any clothes you want.” So I put a thick shirt on her and buttoned it up to her chin. Next- a big bulky sweater, a hood, and then new underwear with yellow ducks, thick jeans, big red socks and sneakers. After the procedure, I told her it was not just to cover her, but I felt the clothes protected her somehow. Annie said she used clothes as protection from her father. She used to wear four pairs of pajamas to bed. I almost lost it then, thinking of that tiny body and child logic and 8 years. I did more healing work on her that session. (I generally remove old emotions and stuck energy from organs and chakras.) Her email the following week said that she felt better than she had ever felt in her life. A few weeks later, “Danielle” showed up at my door with a wrist that still hurt 9 months after breaking it, with aches that travelled up her arm. Muscle testing led me to this equation: Root chakra + father + sore arm / wrist = resisting sexual attack (putting out her hand to stop him and failing to do so)

I balanced the root chakra by removing a metal rod (penis) and a steel box (of secrets). Danielle told me that her father had abused her. Mother Mary came in blue and white light. She flooded us with love. She held Danielle and rocked her as she sobbed. Next, Mother Mary and I worked on Danielle together. I saw Danielle covered in deep water – overwhelmed. I pulled the plug, and it drained slowly. I saw a naked little girl, about 8 years old. She thought she was ugly and worthless. I played with her long hair. “Such pretty hair,” I told her. I put a pink bow on one side. “Such a pretty girl,” I said. I touched her face with love. Mother Mary was doing similar things- washing her, erasing the hurts. This little girl wanted pretty clothes: a lavender dress. The above 2 procedures on Danielle took about 15 minutes, but I worked on her for 50 minutes in total. Danielle said that memories flooded her during this session- things she had forgotten- a rape in the woods, molestation by a teacher. This beautiful woman said that she had felt ugly all her life and wondered why men pursued her at all. Her wrist and hand stopped aching within a day. Laurie Fraser is a writer and healer.

Ethnic Matters in Canada


am a person who was asked to write an article. I had many articles and many things to say to the spiritual healing community but I never once said the truth of what we are suffering. I would like to offer my opinion to those in this magazine who see a way out of being friends with different cultures. I am sad to say I am not your friend. I will no longer stand by helplessly, pretending racism is not rampant in Canada. I will not blindly go to seek professional help from racists. I do not wish to belong to a community that chooses to promote white religious beliefs. I am not promoting this. I refuse to stand by to say that we are experiencing anything new in Canada. The Jewish population experienced this. We know the African people experienced this. We know Asians experienced this. I am not Asian. I married an Asian man. My friends are ethnic.  I am ethnic. I am not a minority.  I am a woman with equal rights. I say this to male chauvinist and female chauvinist. I refuse to teach to you to see the light. I am not right or wrong. I do not need to be on television to say what is wrong. TONE is enough for me. This is tranquility. Peace. Harmony exist inside this magazine. So you will read or not. Read. I am the evidence-based nurse no longer nursing who cannot wait to say goodbye to racists. I offer you the door. Take it.  If you take it, teach me something new. I say this in front of you. I am the traitor?  I am not new. I am the eldest living daughter of people who know. I know what we know. We know who we are dealing with. Thanks for reading. Sonja A. Muller

What Stops You?


ow is your time. The time to create what you want in your life; to express the fullness of who you are; to let the world benefit from all that is you. Now is the time to rise up and to live your soul’s desires; to release the limiting physical symptoms, pain and mental/ emotional beliefs that have compromised your life’s expression until now. BodyTalk energy therapy can help us to facilitate this process by bringing mental/emotional/physical patterns into awareness, suggesting changes to the way that your body and mind organizes its information and then, creating enhanced lines of communication between all parts and systems so that they can heal themselves. BodyTalk efficiently and effectively addresses a wide variety of symptoms, including: trauma, gutbrain communication issues, structural misalignments, poor circulation, immunocompromised conditions, endocrine and digestive disorders, headaches, genetic diseases, learning difficulties, depression, anxiety, loss of purpose/direction, spiritual disconnect, etc. Welcome to your symptom-free, empowered and liberated life. Now is your time. Jaya’s BodyTalk sessions have quickly become a cornerstone on my healing journey. I am continuously amazed at the depth of transformation that occurs within each and every session.

My health is improving tremendously and I am experiencing more joy and well-being in my life now than ever before. Jaya has a warm and joyful energy that has made me feel completely comfortable and able to receive the gift of this powerful medicine. BodyTalk has revolutionized my life.

What Would You Do If Nothing Stood In Your Way?


t is a new year, and with that, a great opportunity to reflect on where we are at, and where we would like to go. What are your goals, your dreams, your deepest desires? What are you really happy with in your life? What do you want to change? And what would you do if nothing stood in your way? Well guess what? Nothing is standing in your way. If you think there is something in your way between you and getting, doing, or being what you want, then the limitation is only there because you put it there. Money, circumstances, timing, etc. are all excuses so we can stay in our comfort zone and continue to keep our fear at bay. Because, you know what? That fear business is scary stuff. Who in their right mind would want to leave their comfort zone? Well, for starters, I want to. When we stay in our comfort zone we feel safe, protected and, obviously, comfortable. But when we remain in our comfort zone, we are never challenged to grow, or to do more, be more and have more fulfillment in our lives. So I’m asking you to take a step out of your comfort zone to think about what you really want for yourself, your business, your career, your life, your family, and everything in between. What are your aspirations? What fires you right up? What have you wanted to do since you were a child, but were always too scared to try? Or maybe you were even too scared to tell anyone that you wanted to do that. What is it? What lights that fire in your soul? I invite you to write it down, hang that paper up on the fridge, tell someone. Does that sound kind of scary? Maybe a little uncomfortable? GOOD! That’s how you know you’re challenging your belief systems. And by challenging those belief systems, you can set the wheel of change in motion. Who told you that you couldn’t be anything you wanted to be? Who told you that you can’t achieve anything you set your mind to? Who told you it’s better to have a job that pays well than to do something you’re passionate about? Who told you that work has to be hard? Which of your beliefs do you actually believe? It’s time to stop limiting your dreams, and step out of your own way! In a MindScape Workshop, you will learn how to lead yourself into a relaxed state of mind where you build a mental “Workshop”, which then allows you to employ a variety of useful techniques. When we are in the alpha brain wave state, which is what we use in MindScape, we have a direct link to our subconscious mind. By using MindScape, you will awaken your awareness and


gain insight into your limiting belief systems and fears that are holding you back. When you continue to work with the things that surface from your subconscious mind, you are able to become aware of them, so they no longer unconsciously rule your thoughts and decisions. By ridding belief systems from your subconscious mind, you begin to rewire the neuropathways in your brain so you can make new decisions that you were once too afraid to make, or that you once told yourself you weren’t good enough to have, do or be. Your life will begin to transform before your eyes as opportunities open up and you feel brave enough to take the fork in the road. Your external world is a reflection of your mind. When you can bring bits from the subconscious to the surface, you are changing your mind, which will change your reality. What are you waiting for? Kristin Pierce is the owner & operator of Inner Compass Academy (formerly The Serenity Studio) in Warman, SK. She is a MindScape Instructor, Advanced Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, & RMT, who is very passionate about Igniting Intuitions and teaching students to learn how to follow their inner compass.

First Breath Fertility:

A Timely Tool from Our Ancient Past

Recipe of the Month

Foul M’Dammas



magine that as a woman you have a 70-85% chance First Breath Fertility of getting pregnant each month on a mysterious cycle that you are completely unaware of. The repercussions of this would be unexpected pregnancies and lowered chances of conception while on the other hand, if a woman knew of this cycle we could fill the world with loved and planned children. Well, according to scientific clinical studies done in the 1960s and 1970s in Czechoslovakia and Hungry we have such a cycle. Egyptologist Dr. Balogh believes this ancient fertility cycle, that was rediscovered in 1956 by psychologist Dr. Eugen Jonas, to be over 5,000 years old. The premise is that a woman is most fertile every month under the same phase of the moon she was born under. Research which was conducted by qualified doctors and scientists, revealed a woman has a 70-85% chance of conceiving during her personal lunar cycle, under the same moon phase in which she was born, compared to a mere 15-30% success rate for pregnancy during the commonly known mid-cycle ovulation window. In a time of plummeting sperm counts, multiple miscarriages, high abortion rates and daring fertility treatments, this lunar cycle and its implications are noteworthy indeed. Having worked with woman for over ten years using this lunar fertility cycle I am committed to bringing this information to light. Education and utilization of this virtually unheard of cycle is the key to revolutionizing our reproductive lives. For more information on lunar fertility go to

TO THINE OWN SELF… Channelled by Lisa Virtue


emaining true to oneself can be a challenge. The idea that you are allowed, capable, or that it is more than a selfish expression is beyond the reach of many. The view of what it means to be true to yourself is the part that, when shifted, allows the true meaning and understanding of how this is beneficial to all to come forth. In the season of giving there is a focus on ensuring others are finding their happiness, while enjoying what is being offered to you. The giving and receiving is highlighted. Yet during the rest of the year, many find receiving beyond reach. How many parents feel that they must put every need of the child and family before theirs? This seems like the least selfish and most magnanimous way to be. Showing you care so much for them you put yourself on the back burner. Some people use this for their business as well. The business is the focus of their giving and everything must go to that. That all attention and energies be devoted to promoting and growing and working at their business… beyond themselves and sometimes beyond their families and everything else. As we state this, some of you will see that this is not healthy, while others will say, “Yes this devotion is what’s needed to achieve the dreams and goals that I have.” Different perspectives. What we wish to offer for contemplation is the idea that in essence you’re already perfect. Meaning the spirit, the soul, your true being has no need for validation. It has the full love of the Universe, and is part of love itself. The shift in perception we mentioned at the beginning is recognizing that you don’t need to prove anything. This simple understanding relieves so many things when applied to the troubles and traumas and dilemmas of life. Your inner peace comes with recognizing there is nothing you need to be. This helps you let go of all external influence, as you can tell yourself, “I am already loved, loving and part of love itself. There is nothing I need to do to prove that.” If there is nothing that you need to prove, how would that change what you do? How you see others? What you would feel life is for? And do you see, Dear Ones, that as you come to accept yourself in this loving way, the fear of being judged is not held valuable to you any longer? Express your joy and what feels right to you from a state of love. As you release resistance to yourself, the resistances you encounter must also fade away. What you offer comes from a place of loving acceptance instead of an obligation to the world. Finding balance will allow healthier ways for all. Choosing a business and your focus with it from a state of enjoyment is inspired. Needing to be the best or earn the most or work the hardest to show that you are valuable is not

necessary. Let your joy be funnelled in to what you do. Let your passion lead you. You will more naturally find the balance in your life because it is what feels right to you. It feels healthy; it feels good. There is nothing you need to prove Dear Ones. You are loving and you are loved completely. Use this thought in your everyday to notice where you may be unconsciously coming from a sense of needing to prove. Changing the underlying thought is an effective way of transforming your life into a healthy balance. Be at peace in your hearts with yourself Dear Ones. You are loved. Signed, The Greater Selves of Each of You. Lisa Virtue is a channel and energy healer who also teaches others to communicate with their guides and angels. She provides an opportunity to go deep and clear the beliefs that have been negatively impacting your life. If you are feeling the need for a shift, make an appointment with Lisa to address the roots and shift the understanding. 613-296-4271
