Checking In

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, RRC, CRC he dark days of winter can be very challenging for many. We tend to spend more time indoors trying our best to stay away from the cold. That is fine but why not turn this period into a productive time for you? I for one will spend some time in December making plans for the coming year. These plans will cover all aspects of my life like Finances, Health and Wellness, Relationships, Career, Personal Development and Spirituality. I will also spend time in January, just a few weeks after, checking in to see if the items that I had put on my action list are truly the ones that I want or even need to pursue in the new year. I find this exercise truly beneficial because I get to revisit my action list and confirm that these are the things I want to tackle going forward. Many years ago, when I did not do this second revision, I would find myself “drifting” away from my goals. This meant that by the summer, I would sit down and work on a new set of goals having completely left my original ones behind. Needless to say, many aspects of my life were not running smoothly as I was continually jumping from one “good idea” to another. I write a lot about goal setting and the various ways to help you achieve these. Set yourself some short-term goals, that is, things that you want to achieve within the next 3-6 months. Do the same for goals that will take 6 to 18 months to get done. Then outline longer term

Quantum-Touch Therapy: New Year!!! New You!!!

Breakthrough in Energy Healing

Offering Updated model for the first time

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


s we approach each new year, we begin to ponder what we might want to be doing differently and increasingly inspirational. Sometimes this takes place as an exercise program, a new eating regime, or simply a new way of looking at life. However, life and people being what we are, this new plan is often short lived as those pressures of society and those close to us, bring us back to the status quo, and we just slide back into those old patterns.. It is so much easier to continue on the path with which we are familiar. However, there are new tools that can help with these changes, and I offer Quantum-Touch therapy as well as Law of Attraction coaching that can help these changes to be fully defined, understood, and enable us to maintain our intention to make changes in our everyday lives. These are the gifts that enhance life, providing for us increased energy, greater inspiration, the encouragement and support to stay the path until we have reached our goals. Generally, we just keep on expanding those goals and begin to experience a life we could never have imagined just a few short weeks ago. I witness those who, because of pain in their bodies, have been reducing their activities and aspirations, totally changing their lives, with little or no pain, and begin to live in a way that previously was not believed possible. Every day I see clients increasing their flexibility with more fluidity and higher expectations than they have ever even considered. And this is not a function of age. Many of my clients have already lived on the planet for 60 or more years, and they are finding an entirely new idea of what they considered life could be. And they are doing this with great joy, comfort, and a renewed sense of high aspirations, expectations and plans for what the future can be

Develop the Ability to Reach Your Goals


s we step into 2018 – are you looking at reaching goals and creating new levels of success? The ability to control yourself may just be the most important skill you can have!! You probably already know how to get in great shape, eat properly, find a better-paying job, and succeed in a lot of other ways. The problem is, you may not be doing those things. What you lack is enough discipline. Discipline allows you to use what you know. Without it, you’re just a dusty library of information.

Develop the discipline necessary to excel in life with these strategies: 1. Rest is important. Fatigue is a killer of discipline. Have you ever noticed that your discipline is weakest at night? That’s when you’re more likely to waste time. You’re more likely to eat poorly. You’re more likely to send an ill-advised text message to your ex. If you have a task to complete that requires discipline, schedule it when your energy is at its peak. 2. Exercise. Exercise isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the development of discipline. Exercising regularly is challenging both physically and mentally. It’s not easy to get yourself to exercise every day. The slight physical discomfort also requires discipline to endure. You also have the benefit of enhancing your health at the same time. 3. Get organized. Getting and staying organized is another gentle way to build your discipline. Start with just one part of your home. Declutter and clean. Then move on to another part of the house. Clutter also saps your discipline and willpower. 4. Meditate daily. From a distance, meditation looks easy. After all, how hard can it be to just sit there and focus on your breathing, right? Meditation teaches focus and the ability to be resilient when you’re emotionally and physically uncomfortable.

Self-control is the key to making progress. You already know enough. Sometimes, gathering more information is just an excuse to stall. Take the knowledge you already have and put it to work.

Aligning Soul, Heart and Mind

By Lynda Chaplin new year brings endless possibilities. It’s a time to reflect on the year gone by, to let go of the past, and to hold a vision for the coming year. A great way to begin the New Year is to set goals that truly align with your values and purpose, and to consider the growth and changes necessary for you to become your best self—to enjoy a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. Aligning your soul, heart, and mind is essential to living a happy and healthy life. While physical alignment will support your body, aligning your mind with your heart and soul is key. How can you tell when your mind, heart and soul are not in alignment? You will feel it as resistance physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and/or energetically. Resistance is the gap between what your mind thinks and what your heart and soul knows. The bigger the gap, means the more out of alignment your mind is with your heart and soul, the more resistance there is. Resistance can show up as sabotaging behaviour like procrastination, non-action, laziness, or restlessness. It can show up emotionally or mentally as irritability, frustration, boredom, doubt, fear, stress, confusion, uncertainty, and more. When resistance shows up you can feel stuck, held back, or the Universe puts up roadblocks by closing doors on you.


Align Soul, Heart & Mind

Imagine your heart and soul in the driver’s seat and your head becomes the passenger. The mind is not the enemy but it is also not the leader. Lead with your heart and soul, and let your mind follow. When you align your head with your heart and soul miracles will be abundant and you will go from hard work to heart and soul work. The practice of aligning soul, heart and mind can help you to cope with the experiences in your life and enable the impact of stress and challenges to be less significant. Identifying the energetic and emotional root cause can help you release blockages and then restore the natural flow of life energy so that deep healing and transformation can occur. Learn how to use Soul Power, chanting, meditation, movement practices, and other tools to bring alignment to heal your body, balance your emotions, calm your mind, relieve stress, transform relationships, and more. There is no better time to start than right now! Lynda Chaplin is a Master Teacher trained by Dr. and Master Sha. Join Master Lynda on January 12-14 at Saint Paul University to learn how to align your soul, heart, and mind to live a happier and healthier life.

You will feel it as an imbalance or blockage physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and/or energetically.

Pointing at the Moon

Wishingtree Yoga

Zofia Kumas-Tan



Rupa (Ivy) Hatha Yoga Yin Yoga Meditation Teacher Training The finger pointing to the moon is not the moon itself. And yet, the finger does help us to see the moon. It is our starting point and our guide. However, not all fingers are equal; some teachings and teachers will point us towards Truth more directly than others. I gratefully acknowledge the guidance of my teacher, Rupa of Wishingtree Yoga. Having completed her 200-hour Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training and her 50hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training, I can say that she has a special, simple, profound way of teaching. If I had to choose one finger to show me the moon, it would be hers. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments through my website:

January 2018


bit of Zen wisdom came to my mind recently: The finger pointing to the moon is not the moon itself. Yoga practices and teachings are like fingers pointing to the moon. They are trying to show us something, to lead us towards something. They are helping us to experience Truth. But sometimes we become so fixated on the finger – the method or the teaching – that we forget about the moon. We forget that our practice is not the end goal, but a way of attaining our goal, of discovering Truth. It is easy to forget about the moon. Our yoga practice is concrete, something easy for us to grasp, to work with – so we focus on refining our yoga postures, or doing breathing exercises, or completing x repetitions of a mantra. But let’s remember that these are tools, these are pointers. We must look past the pointers and see what they are pointing to. How? Do your practice (postures, breathing, meditation, etc.), and as you do, or after you do, make a point of noticing what you feel in your body and mind. What effect does the practice have on your body/mind? What does your practice teach you about yourself? Do insights arise in the course of your practice, or perhaps after your practice? Simply asking these kinds of questions will invite insights to arise!

Ask The Tea Lady


t sounds cliche but it’s true. “This is the first day of the rest of your life!” January seems to be the time when people take stock of their goals and do a bit of personal inventory and feel like starting new things. I personally find it appropriate to do this ANYTIME of year and on a fairly regular basis, but since the theme of the Tone this month is “New Year, New You” lets talk about a very easy and enjoyable way you can change your life. It has changed mine and many others. Yes, i’m talking about herbal tea consumption. It is a little thing from the perspective that each pot of herbal tea takes an average of 3 minutes to make and can be drunk at your convenience in 10 minute focussed breaks or sip by sip constantly throughout the day. But the effects of getting familiar with healthful helpful herbs is almost like having a best friend in your cupboard supporting your body every time it starts to tip out of balance. That is often what illness is. There may be deficiencies or excesses and not only can herbs bring the body back into better balance but the mind too!!! So lets talk about that because the mind is the one which is most elusive and least understood. To begin with, it is useful to consider that the habitual thought patterns we entertain, believe and speak are very powerful in creating our reality. But when we get tired, sick, stressed we fall into what i call “stinkin’ thinkin’” and this tends to make matters worse. We feel worse and we attract bad luck. I bring all this up because reaching for a good large pot of a nourishing and calming herbal infusion is one way to turn this around and “Take Charge” of the situation. Herbs are a great tool for us to manage our state of being including our bodies and our minds. How to gently honour ourselves with some recalibration and nurture the body gradually to work consistently (and persistently) into


our goals. Giving our body the support it needs to be strong, calm and stable increases the success rate for the most popular resolutions: Becoming more fit, and letting go of destructive habits. Oatstraw is a powerful Ally. Oatstraw is the nourishing herb which has the reputation of heartily “feeding” the nervous system. That is to say that drinking oatstraw tea has the effect of calming and strengthening the nerves. This makes oat straw particularly helpful in managing stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. The first thing on the “to do” list is to get our sleeping patterns somewhat rhythmic. This one achievement will empower everything else that we are trying to do. Drinking Oatstraw tea not only provides a useable source of calcium and magnesium. It also contains Bcomplex vitamins, silicia, flavones, saponins, and Vitamin A. Oat Straw is useful for thyroid and estrogen deficiency, for MS, osteoporosis, appetite loss, anorexia, urinary concerns, colds and chills and to encourage sweating. This herb increases internal heat, dispels internal chill and strengthens metabolism and circulation, prevents and relieves spasms, softens and soothes damaged or inflamed surfaces such as the gastric mucous membranes, strengthens functional activity of the nervous system, helps with the process of assimilating food, and generally restores, nourishes. Overall, Oatstraw is a fantastic way to gently support and strengthen the entire body. What all this MEANS to the topic at hand is that by drinking oatstraw daily we become better equipped to overcome temptations that we have resolved to avoid; we feel more strong and happy and relaxed enabling us to move away from negative habits confidently with minimal withdrawal symptoms. The compulsion to indulge in temporarily satisfying

Welcoming a Deeper Awareness


f you were to sit for a minute and feel into your physical body what would you feel? Peacefulness? Tightness? Soreness? One of the greatest gifts I’ve had this lifetime is to learn how to “sense into my body” and to be able to alleviate my own unease or pain. Additionally, I’m able to generate peacefulness, gentleness and healing in my body. This gift all starts with awareness; the awareness to gently sense into our body, feel into it to understand it then release as needed. What about your emotional field? Do you feel free or contracted? Do you feel strong emotionally or vulnerable? Do you know that allowing your awareness to an experienced guide you can heal your past and shift your mental frame into a healthier and more balanced frame.

but unhealthy food choices is minimized by an overall calm demeanour and emotional state. The exhaustion keeping us away from endorphin raising physical activity has been solved by managing stress and sleeping better. Take Charge of your stress, insomnia and depression this January. Ask The Tea Lady if you have any herbal questions and if there is responsive interest maybe we can get a Q&A column running here!

Learning about ourselves, sensing into deeper levels of awareness helps us to shift patterns and open to a new way of being. We might all have some tendency to bypass, or maybe even carry some level of denial, as it’s nature’s way to cope with life and its ups and down. However, bypassing is ultimately not a lasting solution as it leads to pressures, frustrations or even anger. From these levels of awarenesses we can heal, release and let go. In my experience it is possible through the gentle process found in hypnosis to release the past, release physical and emotional tensions in the kindest and most efficient way. It frees us from burdens we may carry unconsciously or even consciously. In this way we can change our world, and welcome life from a freer, clearer and more fulfilling perspective.

t seems to be, in life, that you either get one or the other. You either get the result that you want, or you have reasons or excuses for not getting it, the result that you want. Think about it. Has there ever been a time when you asked somebody to do something for you, or let's say you said, "Let's get these particular results for me by next Wednesday," and next Wednesday comes around, and you don't have the results? What does the person who you ask to get the results for you give you instead of what you asked for? They give you all the reasons and excuses as to why they didn't provide you with what you really asked for. Successful people don't accept reasons or excuses. People who are less successful actually think their reasons and excuses are true. I remember, I was doing a training, and one of the students said to me, and they put their hands up and said, "Dr. Luke, I don't have any excuses." And I said, "Well, fantastic! So if you've got no excuses, then you must always get the result that you want. Is that true?" "No," he said. And I said, "Well, how do you do that, then? What do you have instead of the results that you want?" And the student said to me, "Good reasons."

Now, in the world of success, there's no such thing as a good reason because a reason, even if it's a good one, prevents you from having the results that you want. So imagine this. You can really just imagine now, if you put a cross through excuses, so you just didn't have any anymore, what would be the only thing that you were left with? You'd only be left with the results that you want. So here's another little challenge for you over the next few days. Start to notice what excuses you're using every time you go to create something that you want and you don't create it. What reason or excuse do you give yourself? And I bet there aren't that many of them, but I also, again, bet that the ones that are present, you make them work really hard for you. So make a note of those over the next couple of days. All the reasons and excuses is a limiting belief, a belief that isn't useful, a disempowering belief, a belief that prevents you from getting what you want. And later on, in some more of the videos that are forthcoming, you can learn how to start to change those limiting beliefs. So, just for a moment, imagine this, that at some point out in the future, being able to change all the beliefs so you no longer had any reasons or excuses for creating what you wanted. It's black and white. If there are no

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

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


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

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

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

ome to the Wellness Show and even experience the most Potent Healing oils on the planet. I’m Lynne Smith, and I have been involved for several decades, in helping clients release and dissolve the internal programs that hold them back in life. I am so passionate about these oils because they never cease to amaze--delivering one miracle after another. These new high frequency Fragrance Alchemy oils have come out in recent years to release negative emotions, obsolete beliefs and patterns that block people from recognizing the new potentials for life that are opening up. We are seeing so much destructuring in the world, but for those with eyes and hearts to see, there is incredible potential for newness. When tested for frequency in a lab, the Fragrance Alchemy oils measured over 16 MHZ. The most potent essential oils measure around 5-7 MHZ in frequency. The Fragrance Alchemy oils have a very different application from the essential oils, and their power knows no bounds—beyond clearing, they then become activating of higher awareness and vitality to the wearer. Fragrance Alchemy oils are specific to the meridians, chakras and other body systems so we shed quickly, multi-dimensionally. Each meridian associates with

4 main negative emotions, and the oils are applied to specific acupressure points to release those negative emotions. They clear anxiety, anger, abandonment, birth trauma, feeling stagnant, stress, depression guilt and much more. They also purify energy fields, boost life force, create a luminous cocoon of peace, and activate higher awareness and powers. The alchemical properties of these fragrance oils are unparalleled, and through their use it is possible to live beyond all emotionality and free from crippling stories of the past.

Meditation in the Yogic Tradition


t holiday time it is very easy to get caught up in the notion that happiness can be created by external things; the right food and drink, the perfect gift, the right people or place. Ultimately, the enjoyment of these things is transitory and we are quickly looking for something new to satisfy our our restless minds. Spiritual traditions suggest that true happiness can only be found within oneself. What is it that creates this inner joyfulnress? When the mind is stilled a state of open awareness may be attained where one experiences a profound connection with unbounded consciousness. The state of “Anandam” or spiritual bliss is the goal of yoga. The yogic spiritual tradition has, over several thousand years, developed techniques of meditation to enable this connection to a trans personal level of consciousness. By consistent practice of these techniques it is possible to grow your own inner happiness. Hathaway yoga is a great way to prepare the the physical body and subtle energy body for meditation practice. Pranayama, various types of breath control, can be used to balance our energies and calm the mind.

However, one of the most simple and effective tools in achieving deeper meditative stares is Pratyahara; withdrawl of the senses. This practice consists of a series of visualization where the meditator; a) Withdraws the attention from external sensory stimuli, b) withdraws attention from the physical body, and c) withdraws their attention from the random flow of thoughts that usually occupy our awareness.


After the mind has become focussed the the meditator uses repetition of a mantra and subtle visualizations to merge the small sense of self into that state of boundless consciousness. This step is, of course, a very big one which takes practice. However, the deeper and more expansive states of consciousness are natural to human beings. They can occur naturally at different times such as being in nature or through deep interpersonal connections. Western psychology refers to them as peak experiences. The language for describing them varies from culture to culture, but all spiritual traditions seem to share an understanding of them. Our own contemporary culture lacks a thorough and integrated understanding of spiritual states and the subtler layers of the mind that facilitate them. However, the Yogic spiritual tradition has been studying and mapping these realms for millennia. Take a look at the illustration of the human chakras and subtle energy channels that are found in many yoga studios. They may have fancy illustrations of petalled chakras, intertwining lines of energy and various symbols and Sanskrit letters. These are maps of human consciousness and subtle energy. Knowing the map does not mean that you know the places they describe. To do that you need to head out on a journey. In this case it is an inner journey and one which is uniquely rewarding. This journey is open to all. The only requisite is a human form and a willingness to start. Chris Simmonds Chris has been practicing meditation for over 40 years and has been an ordained teacher (Acharya) in the Yogic meditation tradition for 16 years. He teaches group classes and provides personal instruction for in those interested in pursuing the spiritual journey through meditation. He can be reached at or 613-298-2447.

We are the instruments of creation. Birthing babies, businesses, laws of equality, and art forms of every venue. We are so intricately designed; with blood, energy, emotions, and passions raging through our beautiful sculpted bodies, in a million shapes, colours and sizes. We build, invent, nurture, protect and entertain.

Pay Attention to Your Heart by Amâeil Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.


hether you are feeling it or not, we have collectively shifted our consciousness into the 4-6D soul matrix Harmonic Universe with a new set of governing laws. To navigate the impact on your experience, remember to pay attention to your heart. The heart is still the power tool for discerning what feels true for us and what doesn’t. If ever this was important it’s now, because as the timelines shift and fresh possibilities emerge as our reality, there will be much to choose from and more to discern. If we ascertain resonance when change comes our way then we’ll be able to sustain ourselves in our journey. Resonance always feels as though there is flow and ease. If there’s no resonance then we can feel questioning, put upon, or mistrustful. While there can be unresolved pain, confusion and distortions in the dissonance, it’s still our journey that’s unfolding, and it remains our responsibility to clarify them. So we must not get lost in rhetoric or directives but know ourselves. We are moving along together in this ascension experiment. To the awakened it may seem more beautiful and feel easier. To others it may feel denser or as though nothing is different. Yet, we each have to be willing to see that our heart can align with the higher harmonics or it can be closed to what’s most transformative for us individually and collectively. The closed heart will not know how to be joyful and flow with the unfamiliar. The open heart will be able to freely trust in the unfolding with faith. Unifying our higher mind and heart will steady us in this sea of change. Our heart helps us to be the Divine human that we are. In all our history this has been its purpose. It hasn’t always been used well. Let’s use it now for being the peace. 17 yrs. experience: intuitive energy education, counselling, healing & multi-dimensional ascension clearing intelligently purposed for Indigos/ Starseeds, young and older. ©2018 Amâeil (Melinda Urban) All Rights Reserved.

The Past is Gone, the Best is Yet to Come By Germaine De Peralta


o you ever find yourself revisiting and rehashing a painful past despite having taken steps to heal yourself? Perhaps you’re stuck there due to an old outworn story in your head that reminds you of your pain, loss, grief or failure. For example, you may have gone through a bankruptcy long ago and you are still in that debt mindset. Perhaps you experienced a difficult childhood and despite having worked with doctors and healers for many years, you’re still carrying your childhood like a bag of rocks on your back. Or perhaps a relationship didn’t work out and your mind still sinks into an endless discourse of “whys” or you are still hanging on to that anger. On one hand, it is good to return to a past wound to heal it. However, to live in a painful past because it is your comfort zone, your crutch or your story, can prevent you from moving forward. How do you unglue yourself and move on? I believe the magic recipe is: Forgive, remove judgement, accept and let go.

We cannot change the past, but we can forgive ourselves, others, and the situation. Forgiveness entails releasing the emotions associated with the unpleasant event. Take steps to understand that situation and those involved and forgiveness will come easier. This act can bring you to a neutral emotional and mental state. Release judgement about what happened. We judge situations when we label them with terms such as “toxic,” “horrible,” “bad,” “unhappy” or “wrong.” Stop judging yourself. Refrain from labelling yourself with names such as, “loser,” “sinner,” or “bad.” Stop judging other people involved. Stop judging God or the Universe. The fact is things just happen, end of story. Accepting what happened is important. Acceptance involves deep humility and surrender. Most of us are doing our best, but we cannot control everything. It was as it was. It is as it is. While we cannot change the past, we can change ourselves. We can have a positive attitude about a challenging incident and learn from the experience. For example, if you made poor choices at work or in a relationship, you can review your decision making process, your choices or your thoughts so you do not repeat your mistakes or create similar experiences. Everything I just described could be a long process, or it can happen in an instant “aha” moment. Letting go of the past frees up your energy to live fully in the present. When you are living fully in the present, you open yourself to all the wonderful opportunities and gifts the world has to offer that could enrich you and help you grow. You will likely notice more aspects of your life that will bring you joy. You will see more pathways to follow. You may open your heart and attract new and supportive relationships. You will likely see your current reality more objectively when you throw away the coloured lenses of the past. Detaching yourself from the past frees you to create a new life – perhaps the one you’ve always wanted.

A Spiritual Journey of Unlearning By Rev. Roxanne Buckle


he journey of awakening and living more fully from our spiritual nature, can be an exciting and empowering experience. When I realized the truth of my divine nature, it was one of the best moments of my life. What a revelation! That I was born in original blessing, and at my core am pure, unconditional love, was like a breath of fresh air blowing through a stale and stagnant consciousness that thought —at the time—-that this body, this intellect, this career, this bank account, this relationship was who I was! It changed the trajectory of my life to one of more peace and freedom than I could ever have imagined. And yet the journey can also feel uncomfortable and challenging and sometimes just plain difficult. Why would something so wonderful as realizing and releasing our imprisoned splendour feel anything but incredible? Because we hold on to our understanding of the who we think we are. Our false self, often called the ego, the personality or the imposter self, is the self we show to the world, and is the self that carries a big load of unconscious beliefs that run the show called our life.

Our divine nature is like a freely flowing river and during our human life we have picked up rocks (beliefs) that get into the river and interfere with the free flow of the river. Our job is to identify those rocks, those hidden beliefs and release them so that the river flows more freely again. The spiritual journey, regardless of the path chosen, is the unlearning of what we erroneously considered the truth about ourselves. When we choose to live more fully, as an expression of the unconditional love that we now know ourselves to be, the Universe supports us. We become conscious of anything that is lurking hidden in our own consciousness, that isn’t supporting us in being who we really are and must release it. This process can feel challenging and uncomfortable, but it is temporary. Letting go of those rocks, in the river of our Divine Nature, frees Its flow in and through us and brings peace, freedom and joy! Join us at Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa as we embark in 2018 on a Journey of Unlearning to claim our divine nature.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: What should we do if we are finding life boring?

SRI CHINMOY: Life is not boring to one who believes in adventure. Adventure does not mean that you have to climb up the tallest mountain. To allow new ideas, fresh ideas, healthy ideas to enter into your mind — that is adventure. Use your imagination-power. Early in the morning, write down three absolutely new things that you have never done, you have never thought of. Then those three things will give you inspiration or a kind of challenge. It will create a sensation in your mind or in your being to do them. Meditate first. After the meditation, use your imagination-power. Just write down, “Three things today I will try. I will make a fresh attempt.” You do not have to accomplish these things in one day, no. It may take a few days or even longer to accomplish them but you can make a start and work on them. Every day presents itself to us as a new opportunity if we can think of every day as a new beginning, a new birth. When there is a new beginning, there is new hope, there is new promise. But if you count the days, then you will be miserable. For the mind, after one month or one year everything becomes uninspiring because the mind believes in age. After one day, the mind will make everything seem old because the mind will make you see everything, every day, in the same way. Every day the mind can invent ways to take away our joy. But not the heart. We have to see and feel everything with the heart, not with the mind. The heart will make us see everything in a new way, a better way. It will bring new joy and new satisfaction into your life. If you can remain in the heart, you are bound to feel at every moment new inspiration, new light, new hope, new promise. When we use the term ‘ever new’, that newness is in the heart. The heart’s eagerness always sees newness in everything. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy


s the New Year comes upon us, we often feel the desire to implement new and improved ways of feeling, thinking, being and/or looking in our bodies and minds. It is challenging to mentally affirm these new ways of being if our energetic, physical and emotional bodies are struggling to work alongside our mind’s expectations. For example, if we aren’t digesting well or therefore thinking clearly; if we have chronic joint, back pain or headaches that limit our activity; if we feel anxious and/or depressed often; if we’re not sleeping well and have little energy; or if we have had various traumas that may show up as any of the above symptoms. Using our minds to mentally will our bodies into action may occasionally be helpful, yet allowing our body to reset via our 3 brains (head, heart and gut), enables it to heal itself and for changes to be harmonious and sustainable. BodyTalk energy therapy and Somatic Experiencing (trauma release) therapy, both help the body and mind to integrate energy from past stresses and traumas, which often becomes stuck within the body’s various parts and systems, causing a host of symptoms and eventually disease. Both of these modalities enable emotions, memories, stuck energy to be discharged in order to free up our immune, digestive, endocrine, nervous, somatic, musculoskeletal, etc. systems, so that we can feel increased energy, our innate aliveness, as well as the freedom to choose our responses to life once more. Jaya Hollohan has uncovered past traumas and stuck energies held in my body for decades and helped them to move out and shift so incredibly quickly. Multiple physical issues that I believed to be chronic and un-fixable have been painlessly cured. I highly recommend experiencing Jaya’s healing sessions. She has helped me to find a version of myself that I didn’t even know existed!  --- Rebecca Lantz, Ottawa

Roughing It: A Tale of Winter Skin


very year our skin suffers the same fate: drying heat indoors, windy days outdoors leaving it dry, flaking and itchy. Conditions like excema flare up, children have chapped hands and lips-what’s a body to do? Certainly hydrating from the insideout is necessary. It doesn’t have to be cold water: a hot beverage with lemon can be effective, as can clear teas. Dry brushing can also be useful-or salt/sugar scrubs before showering or in the tub. Just be extra careful around any damaged skin areas. Take a look in your kitchen: up your omega supplements, apply your evening primrose topically to dry patches....if you are using high quality oils to cook with, give them a try: flax, sunflower and olive oils can be very soothing to the skin. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention essential oils. These concentrated bottles of goodness are wonderful when added to carrier oils so that they are diluted.

Unity Field Healing (UFH)


FH was received by Dr. John Ryan, an Ottawa-based physician. Through a series of meditative visions beginning in 2012, this profound healing began to take shape. This new world healing modality is supported by the new era that we now find ourselves in…The Age of Aquarius. What is so unique about this healing is that it is designed to support and heal our biospiritual transformation through our Quantum DNA. What does that mean? Simply put, it means that we all have an original blueprint. Our own unique perfection known as our SOUL. So, while other healings work to release blockages in the physical and emotional bodies, UFH does this and reintegrates our human experience (human DNA) with our original soul blueprint (quantum DNA). There are 3 unique sessions as part of the UFH modality: Session 1 is called “Self-Attunement” and it works to bridge and align you with your own Quantum DNA axis and Spiritual DNA blueprint. Session 2 is called “Unity Field Healing Template Attunement” and provides a personal attunement to the UFH Template. As well as being a deeply restorative energetic session, it also begins to bridge the gap to Session 3 where you can work more personally with intention. Session 3 is called “Unity Field Healing – Targeted Intentional Support” and is aligned with a specific personal intention. Your intention may include any physical, emotional, psychological or relationship issues that you would like to experience with higher consciousness or healing. Session 3 may be repeated as often as you would like to support specific intentions. If you would like more information or would like to experience these transformational sessions, please contact Ann Jarvis at (613) 218-6899 or email at or visit Ann’s website at:


A 3 Month Program to Radically Shift Your Health & Step Into Your Soul Radiance During the 3 Months You Will Learn & Receive: • Exactly what foods are nourishing your belly and which foods are hurting your belly • A bio-individual diet, meal plan and recipes that allow 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 • Discover your soul footprint and learn how to move into your inherent Divine Radiance • The opportunity to let go of old, limiting wounds, which will allow you to step into the fullness of your being “Ann is a beautiful channel of Divine wisdom. She helped me to shift so much in my life, my health and my perspective, largely through helping show me where I had already shifted, but was holding myself back from seeing that; helping me to embrace and acknowledge what my heart and soul already knew. Next to your own soul, Ann is the absolute best guide if you are yearning to explore your inner worlds, your deepest truth, your true potential, and the purest love” - Tanya W., Kingston For more information, please contact Ann Jarvis at 613-218-6899 or or, visit For more info, please contact Ann Jarvis at 613-218-6899 or or visit

TACT2 - The second Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy


ince the first report on chelation therapy in 1956, chelation has been a popular alternative treatment for cardiovascular disease. To assess the efficacy of chelation, an international clinical trial was funded in 2002. When the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT) results were finally published in 2013, they revealed two important findings: that chelation works, and that it is a historic game-changer for diabetes. A second trial has been designed to confirm the benefit of this important treatment and better understand how it works. If you are a diabetic, over 50 and have suffered a heart attack, you may be eligible for TACT2. What is Chelation? The word chelation comes from ‘chele’, which is Greek for ‘claw’. A molecule that can form strong double bonds with metals is called a chelator. The molecule used in chelation therapy for heart disease is called disodium ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, or disodium EDTA. It is thought to work by binding and eliminating harmful lead and cadmium from the body.


These two metals are both on the top ten list of hazardous substances ranked by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. Like mercury, arsenic and other metals that have no role in the body, they are called xenobiotic metals. While it is not yet clear exactly how EDTA chelation works, current thinking is that the benefit seen in TACT is related to its ability to bind and eliminate xenobiotic metals from the body. This is supported by evidence that links these metals to heart disease, and might explain its greater effect in diabetes. Lead & Cadmium Most people over 50 are exposed to toxic amounts of lead every day, and their bones are the source. An entire life’s lead exposure is stored in the bones, and in the time before it was banned, virtually everyone was exposed to lead in gasoline and paint. Some people are still exposed to lead in water pipes, bullets, soldering or toys. Whatever the source, lead is stored in bones, which releases into the bloodstream again and again as your bones remodel over time. The harm that is done by this lead has been demonstrated in many studies. Several studies have linked higher blood lead levels to increased risk of cardiovascular mortality and all-cause mortality. In

the Normative Aging Study, those with higher bone lead levels were at an 8.37 times increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. This study is important because it measured bone lead levels, which is considered a more accurate measure of total body burden than blood lead, which only reflects recent exposure. There are several ways in which lead might lead to heart disease. Lead increases blood pressure in animal models, and in vitro studies show that it blocks the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that relaxes arteries, by inhibiting and enzyme called endothelial nitric oxide synthetase (eNOS). Lead also promotes oxidative stress and inflammation. The story of cadmium is similar to that of lead. Cadmium is another highly toxic metal that can harm arteries. Cigarette smoke is the most significant source, but everyone is exposed to some cadmium. That is because plants, fruits and grains absorb it from the soil, so there are traces in most of our food. It can damage arteries just like lead can, and it has also been linked to heart disease. At least some of the benefit seen in TACT is likely related to removing cadmium from the body. Many toxic compounds that damage arteries in diabetes cannot be made without metals. This includes advanced glycation end-products (AGEs), advanced lipoxygenation endproducts (ALEs) and protein oxidation products. This may explain the increased benefit seen in TACT in those with diabetes.


It is proposed that EDTA infusions promote cardiovascular health by removing harmful metals that can cause heart disease from the body. This has led some to suggest that these xenobiotic metals are a new modifiable cardiac risk factor. TACT and TACT2 The potential benefit of chelation in diabetes is significant. In the original TACT trial, 1708 patients were given 55,222 infusions and monitored for an average of 55 months. Of these, 608 (37%) had diabetes, and among these patients, the chelation group had a 43% lower risk of death from any cause (HR: 0.57 [95% CI: 0.36 to 0.88], p=0.011), and a 52% lower risk of another heart attack (HR: 0.48 [95% CI: 0.26 to 0.88], p=0.015). What is more intriguing about these results is that the benefit of treatment continued long after the last infusion. The treatment group had their last infusion about 14 months after enrolment, but their risk continued to decline over the entire 5-year period. This not seen in any other current treatment for diabetes. It also supports the hypothesis that removing metals improves vascular health. The goal of TACT2 is to replicate these findings. 1200 patients will be enrolled to receive 40 weekly infusions and take oral capsules daily. Just like TACT, this trial has a 2x2 design, which means that the infusions will either contain the active TACT infusion or a placebo, and the capsules will contain vitamins and minerals or placebo. Each infusion takes about three hours. The goal is to see whether diabetic patients receiving chelation therapy have fewer heart attacks, strokes or deaths than those receiving placebo, and whether there are any differences in quality of life.

Transitioning Into Passion Work By Louise Lalande coCreations

“I am jumping into a long-time dream: amalgamating my experience and talents with my passions!” I said to myself many years ago. It was the beginning of a journey I wanted to explore, and a reality I could never have imagined as a way of life. It wasn’t the first time I made big career decisions. After a burnout in 1995 and 10 years as a lighting designer, I had started my company. I purposely kept it small and simple, with flexible hours which allowed me to include time for self-care and hobbies. As a young girl I adored making crafts and teaching my dolls. The enthusiasm for these activities never left, sneaking long side by side other experiences, reinforcing its stronghold. When you truly love doing something, it infiltrates your memory to plant itself as a seed and, knowing it brings pleasure endorphins, it nudges its way out for more. You’ve seen it: the wildly determined sapling that shoots out of a tiny concrete crack. I’m always amazed at nature’s determination to grow, including our own desire to evolve. Creating something with our hands is a means to express ourselves. It defines us individually and culturally. Whatever we make, it can be a learning experience. Personally, aside from the pleasure of losing myself in the activity, I love the playful, mindful, and peaceful nature of arts and crafts. I also find it is a powerful, yet gentle way to express feelings and emotions that don’t have words. Some consider playtime as inefficient; I know it as a vital part of work and problem solving, as well as emotional and spiritual well-being. We are all creative; it’s a like any ability, the more we practise, the easier it gets. We refine skills and discover new ways of doing, living, and being. Once we have the desire or curiosity to explore the arts with openness, it can become a sanctuary. The trick is getting around our inner critic; you know, the one that makes you feel like a nincompoop that can’t draw, the one that expects you to be a Picasso with the first brushstroke—As if! I’ve met that character more than once and am happy to show you some simple ways to get around its shenanigans. When it comes to manifesting a new career though, it takes resilience, patience, and a pile of other tricks! Step-by-step, year after


year, I’ve fuelled my love of sharing creative, purposeful living insights integrating the arts. First I looked for a mentor, someone to work with and learn from. Back in 2002 I could not find anyone in Ottawa teaching creative thinking or expressive arts so I researched and read as I delved into an unfamiliar world. In 2007 I thought of contacting Julia Cameron and Mark Bryan, the coauthor of: The Artist’s Way. I was overjoyed when Mark took me on as a trainee. Being an artist and facilitating The Artist’s Way courses while incorporating topics I love, such as mandalas, chakras, sacred geometry and the creative manifestation process, is where I feel at home. I love it and love seeing others discover themselves and find answers through it. Any change is challenging and this one was long and tough, but I’ve never regretted following my heart. So I ask, what makes your heart sing? How can you get the seeds you’ve harboured to emerge? What can you plant or nurture this year to bring about the new you, you dream of? Louise is passionate about helping women manage stress and create authentic purpose-built lives. The only  accredited Artist’s Way coach and facilitator teaching in Canada, she imparts creativity tools, recaptured play and design thinking skills. For more information she can be reached at or 613.315.2030.

New Year’s Resolutions:

or What the Heck was I Thinking? “This is the year I am going to make those changes! I’m going to hit the gym regularly and eat well! Yes, Sir! No more fooling around. Come January 1st, I will be a new person. Well, not January 1st, because that is a holiday, so January 2nd! No, wait, I have plans that week, but the first full week of January 2018, for sure, I will be making big changes!” Sound familiar? We all really do have the best intentions and want so much to feel better. In our excitement we tend to bite off more than we can chew. We need to face the reality that we are not going to become a “Buff Babe” in a weeks’ time. We all know this in our hearts, and yet we still make these unreasonable demands of ourselves, like “I will run 5 kilometers 6 times a week!”, when you haven’t even walked around the block in a year. “I will stop eating junk, and eat only gluten free, dairy free, organic vegetables for the rest of my life!” That just hurts my head at the very thought! So, how do we tackle our New Year’s Resolutions? I would suggest; be reasonable, be gentle and be humorous.

Be Reasonable: Think carefully about what you want in your life right now. Maybe you don’t really want to be buff, maybe you would like to have more friends! Make it something that fits you in a way you can reasonably achieve, little steps and small bites! Be Gentle: We are often so much gentler with others than we are with ourselves. Pick a resolution and then be nice to yourself as you tackle it. Don’t beat yourself up. If you cannot do the resolution, choose something you CAN do. Be Humorous: Taking your resolutions too seriously may cause you to end up in tears. Have fun with your resolutions and you will be much more likely to complete them. One way to be reasonable and gentle with yourself is to gift yourself a massage. It is time just for you and contributes to your resolution to be good to yourself in 2018!

Lectins – Common Food Poisons

By Dr. Lawrence Wilson - Nutritional Balancing ll information in this article is for educational purposes only. It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition. Definition: Lectins are a group of toxic chemicals found in certain plant-based foods including wheat, other grains, beans, soy, peanuts, pseudo-grains and seeds.  They are also found in the nightshade family of vegetables – tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and peppers.  Avoiding lectins is one reason that the Nutritional Balancing diets forbid the nightshade vegetables, wheat, soy, seeds and peanuts.  The diet also limits the intake of beans and grains. Common examples of lectins are: Prolamins, so named because they are high in prolamine.  They are found in seeds and in gluten. Agglutinins, that cause clumping of red blood cells.  These are found in the seed coatings of grains.  Genetically modified crops have higher levels of these highly toxic chemicals. Galactin-3, found on the surface of most cancer cells.  It promotes angiogenesis, which is the way cancer grows by forming new blood vessels. WHAT IS WRONG WITH LECTINS? Many lectins are proinflammatory, immunotoxic, neurotoxic and cytotoxic.  Certain lectins may also increase blood

viscosity, interfere with gene expression, and disrupt endocrine function. Worse with vegetarian diets. These diets usually contain more lectins because they usually contain more grains, beans, soy, peanuts and seeds.  This is one reason we do not recommend vegetarian diets.  Much worse in raw foods.  Cooking food thoroughly kills many lectins.  The best way to destroy lectins is to use a pressure cooker. Worse in GMO foods.  In general, GMO foods contain more lectins.  This is just one reason they should be either banned or at least labeled properly. Worse in high-grain diets.  Lectins are also a big problem in diets high in grains, which is very common.

Inner Knowing Channelled by Lisa Virtue


inding yourself in this time of change can feel like a challenge. How do you know who you truly are when you have not experienced it in your day-to-day being-ness yet? How you come in to this word is so innocent and pure, you see. So trusting and with faith. Years, decades, later you stop to see the path you have taken and wonder where that faith went. You wonder how that innocent expectation could possibly return to you at this point, having experienced so much. Yet we are here to share with you the knowledge that it is indeed possible. The return of your faith can be felt within you. Your creations are manifesting around you so quickly now. You will come to see the time between thought, expression and witnessing as a smooth flow. It behoves you then to follow a path of insight management. A time of choosing a ‘witnessing of thought’ process. Pay attention to the way you are creating in your life at this time. Do this without criticizing who you are. You are forever a beautiful being of love and Divine presence, that is assured. Within the context of the life you are experiencing and expressing as, see yourself simply as you are currently being. How are you creating, thinking, feeling and projecting or expressing? What are you choosing and how is it interfacing with that which surrounds you? The key to new thinking, feeling, expressing and interaction is the observation and new decision. How am I doing this? What is the witness-able effect? Is it to my preference? If it is not, how can I use that knowing to determine my preferred state of being? How is the

Grains can be divided into two groups: True grains are the seeds of grasses such as barley, oats, rice, rye, millet, wheat, teff, corn, kamut, spelt and possibly wild rice. Pseudo-grains are the seeds from broadleaf plants. They include amaramth, buckwheat, chia and quinoa.  Both types of grain contain some lectins. Avoiding lectins is one reason that in the Nutritional Balancing diets grain intake is limited, as are legumes.  Instead, we recommend diets high in cooked vegetables, which are safe from these toxic chemicals.

part of me that is aware of a different choice perceiving the possibilities? If I know that something isn’t feeling right for me, it indicates that I do know what is in alignment. Simply being aware is a good beginning. Recognizing a part of you understands beyond what you have been living to date it’s a great boon to you. It truly has been with you all along, as the great gurus and sages have espoused over the eons. Dear Friends, begin in truly connecting with this awareness of there being a part that knows. Leaping to the stage of ‘having all the answers’ will not arise if you have not established a knowing or a sense – a faith – that you have what you have been seeking within you. Imagine how the rest will be allowed to flow smoothly when you have true belief in that connection? You have it all within you already. Use kindness with your own self in moving along the self-revealing process. We hold you in esteem and reverence for your expressions, Dear Ones. Dissipate criticism with a sense of wonder. How spectacular it can be to discover more about the depths of your being. With love and deep gratitude for your journey of being, Spirit Of All Things.
