Veteran Folk Herbalist: Carol McGrath


arol McGrath is an herbalist, folklorist, photographer, poet and foster mother. She is a loyal and compassionate friend and generously gives of her skills, talents and time to her community. This wise woman has agreed to be the keynote speaker for Carp Farmers Market’s inaugural Herb Festival in June. It’s fitting because this farmers market was started in 1990 by Hildegarde Anderson who, like Carol, believed in promoting local healthy food for people in strong communities. Carol’s emphasis regarding cooking with herbs is on local, organically grown, low cost, fresh or properly dried herbs. Having grown up in Newfoundland with ten siblings and a father who was a doctor and the Minister of Health she has a healthy perspective about conventional medicine. It’s strength, she says, is in effectively diagnosing, and treating acute conditions but Carol believes in a well rounded approach to health including nutrition and herbs and lifestyle. Traditional herbalism plays a role in this as a complementary partner. We will be treated to a discussion about the full flavours and medicinal benefits of the culinary herbs we use every day at the Carp Herb Festival, so mark the

date; you won’t want to miss this opportunity. Carol McGrath was introduced to the study of folklore, including folk medicine, at Memorial University in 1968 and began focussing on herbal studies in 1977 in Victoria. Since 1981 she has been practicing and continuing to study and teach Western Folk Medicine traditions, enriched by Native Medicine traditions. For over 30 years Carol lived on a Nature Sanctuary in Victoria, British Columbia where she worked with Jim and Mindy Green (notable authors of “The Medicine Maker ’s Handbook”, “The Male Herbal” and several aromatherapy reference books) in the Health food store they co-owned. At the same time she studied, practiced, taught and provided consultations. She presented at a number of national and international herbal and folk medicine conferences as well as Dominion Herbal College Annual International Summer Seminar; Oshio College of Acupuncture and Herbology; Breitenbush Herbal Conference; Green Nations Gathering in the Catskill Mountains, New York and many more. Carol has been authorized to mark and grade Rosemary Gladstar ’s well respected herbal correspondence course and impressed me with her stories of personal experiences with colleagues who I consider to be the most important herbalists in North

Moms & Tots. In Arnprior she has given many talks including at Walter Zadow Public School, 4th Arnprior Brownies, Arnprior District High School ( in three different programs…Biology, Horticulture and Native Studies) and The Fountain (a church drop in centre) a series of 4 classes on Herbs of the Bible. Aside from all this experience and impressive credentials, Carol is a riveting and entertaining storyteller. She has the healthy spirit of a “down home” girl, and an ability to make you smile. Her stories are like parables; they entertain on one level but have a lesson to teach on another. I could listen to her speak for hours (and often have done so). I didn’t even mention the 93 year old Coast Salish Medicine Woman who taught her so much, or her adventures in Central America, The Arctic, England, Ireland, USA, and Mexico. This is truly an elder in the herb community with a rich history and scope of experience to share. Luckily for us, she is willing! Our grassroots non-profit group “The Ottawa Herb Society” loves having Carol as a board member and her input for our monthly discussions and workshops is deeply valued and greatly appreciated. I am truly honored and excited to present my friend Carol at the Herb Festival on June 26th and do urge you to try and make it. Bring a Basil pesto (in two jars) if you feel like participating in a small town country market competition...

Hurt Hurts

operate with heart-connectedness, we are acting in a non-reactive way. Nonreactivity is a basic tenet of Buddhism. It does not mean no action. It means that the responding action is solely based on the resonating, heart-connected inputs from the responder’s whole energy field. This ensures that any existing hurt is either gently blocked or reduced, and not compounded. When a person is in this theta brainwave state, it is called supraconsciousness. Supra-consciousness acts as a modulator between the states of simple consciousness and self consciousness. It is a beautiful state in which our Psyche and Spirit are continuously balancing each other. We stay conscious of hurt and dissolve it.


str e


ne of the least talked about and the least understood of all the emotions is basic human hurt. Most people bury their hurt and it can then become “frozen”. This is depicted very well in the book and the film, “The Stone Angel”, by Margaret Laurence. The less loveable a person is, the more susceptible to hurt they become. Big hurts and little s hurts happen to all of us throughout s llnes our lives. It is therefore important we smokin to know how to assimilate hurt and frui transform it at the conscious level as much as possible. It is also critical xie ty to be able to distinguish between self -esteem “old hurt”, “recent hurt” and “newest hurt” and not let these hurts t weigh aggregate.

Self-Awareness Strengthens Your Relationships


elationships are important. They support you, they mold your life, and they help make life enjoyable. However, relationships are also a challenge. Whether we’re talking about relationships with friends, children, co-workers, parents or a significant other, the more you know yourself, the better your relationships will be. They can be more rewarding, supportive, and generally more fulfilling and enjoyable. Let’s take a look at how knowing yourself can help you have better relationships. Ability to Accept Responsibility There are no victims in a relationship where everyone takes responsibility for their actions. It’s a happier and healthier place to connect from. When you know yourself well, you’re in a much better position to accept responsibility for any challenges in a relationship. For example, if you know that you prefer a more open and less rigid parenting style, and your partner prefers more structure, you can accept responsibility when you disagree with each other. And when you know that your parenting styles clash, you can own and accept your role in this clash. This ability to recognize and accept responsibility also helps you build stronger teams. Build Stronger Teams and Partnerships When you know your strengths and weaknesses, you can partner and/or team up with people who complement you. For example, if you’re a lenient parent, your children might benefit from a parent that is a bit more structured. Between the two of you, you can co-create a parenting style that suits both of you and most benefits your children. If you also chose a person that had a lenient parenting style, your children may miss out on the benefits of structure and rules. The same is true in a work environment. If you’re not a detail-oriented person, then having someone on your team that pays attention to the details can help you work most effectively and productively together. Making It Work When you know who you are, it’s much easier to find a common ground with your relationships. You can approach challenges and differences without judgement and blame. Instead, you understand who you are and can more readily create agreements and systems to work with others. This includes your coworkers, your children, and your friends and spouse. It’s much easier to make relationships work when you don’t feel the need to blame or the desire to take on the role of a victim. Your relationships and communications are more honest and patient. Everyone benefits. Relationships are important. You can have better relationships when you’re self-aware. It’s easier to create a supportive and honest relationship when you


come from a place where you know who you are and what you want from your life and your relationships.

Extended Side Accompanied pose (Trivikramāsana) Story By Rupa


rivikrama is another name for Viṣṇu. The pose is dedicated to Vāmanadeva, the Dwarf incarnation of Viṣṇu. It is said that Bali Mahārāja, the king of the demons, gained control of the world. Bali practiced asceticism and became so powerful that he even threatened the demigods. The demigods prayed to Lord Viṣṇu for help. Viṣṇu then descended on earth and was born a dwarf. At one of the sacrifices performed by Bali Mahārāja, Viṣṇu appeared before him in the form of a Vāmana (dwarf) and begged for three steps of land. Since this seemed very insignificant, Bali Mahārāja agreed to give this land in charity without hesitation. Then, the Dwarf extended his body and assumed a gigantic form as Viṣṇu. The first step covered the entire surface of the Earth and the second step reached the topmost planet of the universe. Thus, Bali Mahārāja was deprived of all his possessions and there was no vacant place where Lord Vāmana could take his third step. Bali Mahārāja offered his own head on which the Lord plants his foot and he becomes a great devotee of Lord Vāmana. Viṣṇu then sends him to the Sutala planet and allows him to be its ruler. Self-inquiry from the story: We tend to believe what we see with our own eyes. We forget that our sense organs have limitation. If we believe our own eyes, then we believe the Sun is smaller than the Earth and the Earth is the centre of Solar system. Of course now we know that the Sun is much bigger than the Earth and that the Sun is the center, because knowledge expands our views and tells the truth. Similarly, the visible physical body is only one layer of the Self. The Individual Self also includes layers that cannot be seen by the naked eye, such as the mind, intelligence, consciousness and the soul; they are parts of what is called the subtle body. When we begin the self-realization inquiry “who am I”, we cannot only look at the physical body, the manifestation of matter; we also look at the subtle body, the manifestation of energy. Spiritual knowledge allows us to see the true Self in its entirety. Can we accept the truth that the physical body is not the centre of the Self? Do we like to have the real eyes to see the Self?

Growing Within Your Relationships An article by Lynne Cardinal

For Aristotle, friendship is one of the most important virtues in achieving the goal of happiness.1


e are living among 7.4 billion people on earth. Even though we sometimes long for solitude, we also are, willingly or not, pulled to interact, share and bond with our fellow human beings. National Geographic states in an interesting book called, The Blue Zones, that after exploring pockets of centenarians on earth, looking for their source of longevity, one of the common denominators they found was that the centenarians shared strong bonds with their family or community. These centurions value relationships dearly.

Yet it is not always easy to relate. We get triggered, and we carry our own story, which makes it all the more difficult to communicate in an authentic way. However, when we slow down a little to be more attentive to our needs and others, we see that there is a great potential of personal growth and satisfaction in enhancing our relationships. I have observed that satisfaction cannot manifest in a disconnected way, that it truly can arise only in an integral way. It may appear easier to look or run away, yet it is a far superior experience to learn

to look calmly at our predicament, learn to stay with our reactions, observe them, and learn from them. Then observe other’s predicaments in a calm, nonjudgemental perspective. I have found that if I truly look, observe gently, compassion is effortless. I can sense my own patterns and history and that of others, which helps me communicate from a deeper more compassionate standpoint. It is possible to access our own emotional world, in the way that we live our life together, and learn the high art of living together. We also need to be committed to that because there are so many ways we could fall back into old habits. To enhance your relationship habits I adapt each of your sessions. Hypnosis then serves as a deep meditation to empower your objectives and make them last. The age of judgemental opinions is over. Higher attunement means listening to others without our personal filters. It is to get to a state of inner fluidity where I can join your river and you can join my river. That is our potential. Lynne Cardinal has studied extensively with Thomas Hübl on Transparent Communication and Principles of Transformation and she took a 3 day training with Diane Hamilton in Conflict Resolution. Lynne has offered Communication skills, Stress Management, Resilience and Burnout Prevention workshops in the government and private sectors for over 30 years She is also a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss. She is certified by Dr. Weiss in Past-Life Regression and she has a PhD in Eastern Philosophy from India.

As it was for me, it may be for you, that Yoga just ‘doesn’t do it for you’. I cannot imagine a day without it now. It has taught me many things, to be happy with myself and enjoy the movement and wellbeing in my body, mind and soul. Most of us lead very busy lives and are constantly rushing from place to place or stuck behind a desk. If you are not already doing so, I urge you to move your body. many times have we walked down the street and passed many people with eyes down and fingers flying over power so they disempower or tear another person down their phones texting or speaking on the phone while in order to feel more powerful.

5 PROVEN Tips To Help You Wipe Out Your Depression So You Can Live A Happy Life By Dr Luke Howard Clinical Hypnotist


re you lonely? Did you know that being lonely is a normal part of our everyday lives. Lets face it, we've all been there. We get depressed when we fail in our exams, when we're rejected by the person we love, or when someone very close to us passes away. That's just part of life. But, depression, however, can be more fatal than just plain loneliness. It could render Life-Long consequences that could ruin your Self-Esteem, Health, and WellBeing in the process. Well, today is your lucky day because I'm going to share with you some great tips to help you conquer the 'Melancholy Mood' so you can get the MOST bliss out of your daily activities. So, with that said, lets go to Tip #1. Tip #1. Do you get enough Light and Sunshine? Did you know that lack of exposure to sunlight is responsible for the secretion of the hormone called Melatonin, which could trigger a dispirited mood and/ or a lethargic condition. Melatonin is only produced in the dark. What it does is it lowers the body temperature and makes you feel sluggish. So, if you are always cooped up in your room (with the curtains closed), it would be difficult to restrain yourself from staying in bed.

This is the reason why many people suffer from depression much more often in winter than in the other seasons. It's simply because the nights are longer. If you can't afford to get some sunshine, you can always lighten up your room with brighter lights to help offset the darkness. Or... You could go have lunch outside the office for a change and take frequent walks in the early afternoon instead of driving your car over short distances. The choices are endless. It's really up to you. Tip #2. Keep Busy and Get Inspired. You'll be more likely to overcome any feeling of depression if you keep your mind busy doing the activities you like doing the most. Do the things you love. If you're a little short on cash, you could engage in simple stuff like taking a leisurely stroll in the park, playing sports, reading books, or engaging in any activity that you have passion for and would love to pursue. Also, set a Goal. No matter how difficult or discouraging life can be, remain firm and have an unshakable belief that you are capable of doing anything you desire. With this kind of positive attitude, you will attain a cheerful disposition to beat the blues. Tip #3. Take a Break. Sit back and Relax. I mean it. Listen to some soothing music you like. Soak in a nice warm bath. Simply take a break from your stressful workload and spend the day just goofing around doing the things you love. In other words, go have fun. Life's to short as it is.

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 Lapband hypnosis, SO CAN YOU! The good news is that this incredible method of Losing Weight is available locally. The bad news there usually is a three to four week waiting list for an appointment but even the medical profession believes it’s worth waiting for

She had tried every type of Weight Loss Gimmick, Diets, Supplements, Gym Memberships even Personal Trainers but nothing worked, until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promised I would do a testimonial for you. Here it is: The hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I lost 25lbs I have not eaten at timmies...I have had NO DESIRE TOO!!! It really has changed my life!” Check out more testimonials at: you can contact Dr. Luke at 613-878-5874 to arrange an appointment.

Tip #4. Maintain a healthy diet and Stay Fit. Avoid foods with lots of Sugar, Caffeine or Alcohol. Sugar and caffeine may give you a brief moment of energy; but they will later bring about Anxiety, Tension and Internal problems. Alcohol on the other hand is a depressant. Many people would drink alcohol to simply "forget their problems." All they're doing is aggravating their conditions in the process. Also, did you know that exercising regularly is a vital depression buster. Why you ask? Simply because it allows your body to produce more Endorphins than usual. Endorphins are sometimes called "the happy chemicals" because of their Stress-Reducing and Happiness-Inducing properties. Tip #5. Get a Social Life outside of work. No man is an island. Your inner circle of friends are there to give you moral support. Spending time and engaging in worthwhile activities with them could give you a very satisfying feeling. And we all know... nothing feels better than having group support. And... never underestimate the power of Touch. What I mean is... doesn't it feel so good when someone pats you on the back and gives you words of encouragement during your most challenging times? Hug or embrace someone today. Get intimate. Establish close ties with your family and friends. The love and care expressed by others could tremendously boost your immune system and fend off illnesses. Best of all, you'll live a more secured and happy life. Now go give those 5 Tips a try and see how they pan out for you.

Organic Herbs and Veggies Now in Stock: Herbs for all Reasons!


ost of us know about the culinary uses of herbs to enhance flavour-I personally can’t wait til my gardens are producing these amazing plants. But did you know that herbs can also be used to help skin care issues? Basil, for example, can take the itch right out of a mosquito bite. All that peppermint you discovered growing from last year? Make a herbal bath steeped in this herb to relieve soreness and lethergy. Lemon balm, also in the mint family, has antiviral properties, and can be used for cold sores. Just drink the steeped tea (about 1 tablespoon per cup) several times a day. Bonus: this herb is also cheering in times of depression. If any of you are growing prolific comfrey, I can tell you it works wonders on bruising and swelling. A poultice made by making a strong tea, or chopping the fresh herb and blending it with water can be used as the base.


Be careful, this plant is a bit prickly. Wrap the poultice in cotton cloth or gauze and apply to the skin. I find if I wrap the area in saran wrap, it is less messy and the full power of the plant goes into the affected area. Comfrey used to be used internally, but is not recommended. Calendula, one of my all times favourites, is a cheery little plant with yellow or orange petals bursting with beta carotene. I have used it on conjunctivitis, minor wounds, burns and dermatitis. Thyme is a powerful healer, great for fungal infections (think foot soak) and back spasms (think soothing bath combined with Epsom or sea salt). Plants hold the answers to many of our problems-they really are amazing plant medicines!

Sports Injuries & Acupuncture

By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac ports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities. Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning, or insufficient warm up and stretching. Many sports injuries can be due to overuse of a part of the body when participating in an activity. Other types of injuries can be caused by hard contact with something. Sports injuries typically involve the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones, and associated tissues like cartilage. Acupuncture can be of benefit to all types of sports injuries. It is of course always best to treat an injury in the acute stage or as soon after an injury occurs as possible, in order to assist the body in healing quickly and fully. Early treatment also helps to prevent the possibility of

long-term or chronic problems with the injury down the road due to improper healing. However, acupuncture is also very beneficial in any stage of healing and can also be of great help to old, lingering injuries or injuries that did not properly heal. Acupuncture taps into the body’s own resources to encourage the healing process and the body’s optimal functioning. With sports injuries this can mean reduced inflammation, increased circulation, reduced muscle tension, and of course, pain relief.

Affordable Healing e already know that unresolved trauma, growing


up in dysfunctional families and mental health issues are often at the core of our inability to be happy, healthy and great at what we do. We also know that people in poverty are most vulnerable to being unhealthy, unhappy and in jail. People often do not have the information and resources to help themselves out of their stuck position. We end up spending millions each year for emergency room visits, social services, police time, jails, shelters and medicare. There is enough research on simple, affordable healing tools that we can confidently start integrating them into schools, offices, community centres, hospitals, churches and disaster zones. An example of this was the use of Emotional Freedom Technique (EMF or tapping) in Asia after a devastating earthquake. Volunteers taught orphaned youth how to tap and teach others to tap. The PTSD rate was significantly lower. Another example was the use of Brandon Bay’s Journey in an African classroom where none of the students were passing due to war and disease. Using a simple visualization once a week resulted in the children passing in a matter of months. Closer to home local healers Jean Wilmot and David Teed have developed the Relational Clearing Technique to lift heavy patterns from ancestral lines, negative relationships and life traumas. They are giving an introduction to their work at the centre on Mon. Jun 13, 7-9pm, by donation. Each participant will receive a brief reading of their own patterns and information about how they can learn to clear them. As well, Kaia Nightingale is offering her time and gifts for a presentation on the healing powers of music on Sun. Jun 19 as part of the free Carp Healing Circles series.

Laura’s Numerology News For June 2016 How to calculate your personal monthly number for June Add the day of your birth. Then you will add the number 6 for the month of June. NOTE – If you’re final number adds up to double digits, add the numbers together again, and again, if you have to, until you get a single number. If you still have trouble, email me at  1. I know that this year is a total grind, and it is only half over. You may find a small window of opportunity to factor in some fun, this month. The entire year’s events will create a very deep knot in your forehead, and forces you to get off your butt and work extremely hard. Work and family duty have a big focus, too. 2. This would be a perfect month to take a trip or spend some quality time with the people in your life. Get out of the office, as everything come to a big halt, and will only add frustration to your life if you hang around. Have an adventure. 3. There will be a spring in your step and you will feel a new life in your exhausted bones. The world will seem brighter and there will be more opportunities for fun, vacations and new beginnings. Try to focus on creative pursuits around the home, or with your family.

Swami Tejomayananda June 20 to 25, 2016

4. Have you placed issues connected to your body and mind on hold for far too long? I know that you are very, very busy, but you cannot ignore it any longer. If you do you will get a big slap in the head. Get your act in gear and pay attention, NOW. Fix what needs fixing. 5. Is your work life in a state of chaos or change? Watch your mouth and be very careful that you say as it might get you in trouble later. If there are changes needed at work, take the reins and move forward and promote yourself, now. This is a super business influence. 6. Your attention will be focused on your loved ones, in June. Make an effort to be generous and tolerant of everyone’s flaws or short comings. This whole year will focus on endings, and the month of June is about ending issues around the house or family. Your emotions could run hot so find a vent. 7. Have you thought about your goals, for the future, yet? What are you waiting for? You are in the first year of a nine year chunk of time, and a 7 month, so it is all about you. Do you want a new career, new home or a new love, this year? Make a plan and plant a seed, now. You create your own reality, remember? 8. Career or money restrictions will stop you from either taking a vacation or enjoying it. There will be a surplus of work thrown in your face, this month. You are being stretched beyond yourself. The result will be a new and better you, but you will work hard for it. 9. Pack your bags as it is time for you take a well deserved holiday. If money is low, kick back have a few buddies in for a BBQ. You will experience a few endings in June, but this is important, so you can open new doors as early as July. Do not start anything new, just tie up loose ends and get ready for a light switch to be thrown into the ON position Laura Young is an intuitive numerologist/life coach.

Susan Rondeau Lecorre gave this speech at her East Ottawa Toastmasters club on April 4, 2016. In it she talks about a subject which is very dear to her heart, and which she has reflected on for many years, to form her own personal philosophy of life.

The Meaning You Give It


id something ever happen to you that was so special you felt you were guided there by unseen forces? Other people looking at your life might say, oh what a nice coincidence, but to you it was more than a mere coincidence. It had a very personal meaning. My purpose in this speech is to show how the meaning you yourself give to experiences in your life can make all the difference between feeling disappointed, devastated or instead feeling blessed; and how life can take on a miraculous feel if you’re ready to notice the miracles. Now, when I say miracles, I don’t mean it in the religious sense. In my mind a miracle is not the Webster dictionary definition of “an extraordinary occurrence that surpasses all known human powers or natural forces and is ascribed to a divine or supernatural cause.” Instead, for me a miracle is a natural occurrence but with a very special personal meaning and which may strike you with a sense of awe. In fact, to me, life itself is a miracle – plant a sunflower seed and watch it grow – isn’t that miraculous!?! Nor am I the only one. Here is some of what poet Walt Whitman says in his poem entitled “Miracles”: “As to me, I know of nothing else but miracles. ... to me, every hour of the light and dark, every cubic inch of space is a miracle.” Now I know that some people tend to read more into things than common sense would have us believe. Even so, you don’t have to be a Pollyanna or superstitious to see some things as both ordinary and extraordinary, at the same time. What, in my opinion, makes up a so-called miracle, or wondrous happening? I can think of three important elements: 1) synchronicity 2) reframing 3) personal meaning Therefore, if you are interested in having a brighter or deeper outlook on life, here’s what you need to notice. The term synchronicity was coined by renowned


psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung and has the definition of “a meaningful coincidence”. Synchronistic events are are two random occurrences that happen simultaneously, to collide into something that seems much more than a mere coincidence. In my own life, I can give you the curious example of my birthday of a few years ago. On that day I was in the Byward Market with my husband. I entered a store looking for a large wicker basket which I would use as a clothes hamper. I had been looking for just such a basket for the right price for months. I really didn’t want to pay more than $25 which was maybe asking too much. I found one basket in the back of the store with no price on it and brought it to the front to find out the cost. The cashier told me that it was originally $68, but they had been trying to sell it for over 3 years, it was a bit damaged and if I was willing to take it off their hands I could have it for free. I couldn’t believe my ears! I was overjoyed at receiving this incredible birthday present. I felt that the Universe had guided me to that very spot on the day of my birthday and dropped a present in my lap. It made me wonder how many other things I had been guided to in my life. This was synchronicity. As to the term reframing, seasoned counsellor Martha Beck gives the perfect example in her article “How to Turn Accidents into Miracles”. In the article she talks about her client Annette who had been in a serious car crash. Another car, driven by a meth head, had run a red light and slammed into her vehicle at more than 70 mph, flipping it. Her crushed car rolled, bounced and came to rest upside down. No one could believe that she had walked away from the accident. As Martha Beck says, “Accidents are never pleasant, but if you choose to see meaning in them they can be useful.” This accident could have caused Annette to zero in on hopelessness (eg. feeling completely vulnerable to all the bad things that can happen in the world in spite of the fact that she had done everything right and followed all the rules)

or, on the other hand, it could become a catalyst for growth. With Martha’s help, Annette was able to reframe the feeling of fear and vulnerability the accident had provoked, into one where, because she had miraculously survived, she now felt able to release her fear of death and go on with greater serenity. And of course, these special incidents all have a personal meaning which is very subjective. It is not a meaning you can prove when describing it to others and they disagree. It is real for the individual experiencing it and cannot be denied. I’ll give you the case of my Dad. Many years ago he had been suffering with a kidney stone over a period of several weeks. X-rays showed the stone was too large to pass and he was scheduled for major surgery. My husband Joël and I had read in Prevention Magazine that people sometimes had success getting rid of kidney stones by taking magnesium and vitamin B6 supplements. Because my parents had always been so wary of taking anything not prescribed by a doctor I hesitated to call them with this information. I was sure they would just pooh-pooh and ignore it. Finally, on the day before Dad’s scheduled surgery, I called and told him about it, on the off chance he would dare to try it out. To our amazement, Dad followed through and took a few doses during the rest of that day. The next morning he was off to the hospital for his operation. The doctors X-rayed him first, to determine the location of the stone. To their surprise, that unpassable stone had disappeared. It had dissolved and the surgery was cancelled. One evening I recounted this incident to my writers’ group, and one fellow who was a scientist told me he could guarantee that the magnesium and

B6 supplements had nothing to do with it, and if an X-ray had been taken just before Dad took the pills, the stone would have already been gone. Scientist or not, I still believe those supplements saved my Dad from major surgery. And in the meantime, I believe it even moreso because they have done the same thing for my husband as well – saved him from surgery!. To me this incident had a very personal meaning. It showed me how people are connected at an intuitive level, where we are sometimes inspired to intervene in the lives of others at an opportune time. I’m sure any one of you could think right now of a similar-type situation that has happened in your life, or the life of someone close to you ... Maybe you ran into the right person at just the right moment and something important happened, or you were witness to two things happening simultaneously in a very special way. Or perhaps something that felt like a hardship turned out looking like a godsend because it enabled you to learn important things about yourself and the people around you. Skeptic or not, reframe your vision and it could happen to you! Whatever the case, I hope that, for your own gratification, you can more often give yourself permission to see the extraordinary in the ordinary and rediscover your sense of awe and wonder. Whether it really is unseen forces guiding us is nothing I can prove, but incidents like the ones I mentioned make me believe that we are all treated to secret glimpses of an unfolding Universe from time to time, and that we each make a difference.

“7 Times Saved” tells the true-life account of Holly A. Kline’s seven near-death ordeals that involved spiritual connections that saved her from a dire fate. This book begins with retelling her life as a little girl in the hands of an abusive mother and continues through six other life-threatening situations, including: being shot at on the firing range while serving in the military, a drowning experience in Lake Huron, flat-lining twice during childbirth, rolling in a car accident, being electrocuted, and falling 65 feet in an elevator, plummeting at the speed of 125 km/hour. Readers will find in these pages an inspirational tale that harnesses faith, hope and the will to live. Each reader can enhance their own inner strength and attain peace of mind to overcome their own life challenges, find comfort in difficult times, and forge ahead no matter what. The life messages found in Holly’s words give insight on how to rebuild a life after hell breaks loose, how to rekindle connections with spiritual guides, how to find your soul’s true purpose, and how to build a happier more meaningful life.

Let Go For Dear Life!


hat things do we hold onto? Resentments, unforgiveness, opinions, judgments, the past, anxiety/worry about the future…need for control! Are you ready to let go? Then just “Let go and Let God”, or leash ego and unleash our Divine Nature. When we lose our keys, we run around franticly getting all stoked up…then when pause. Creating that pause is similar to taking time to pray and connect to the higher self. When we let go, we know what to do next. This also happens when we “sleep on it.” It’s why the answer comes to us in the morning. Sleep is like Letting Go and Letting God. From the book The Quest “the human need to control is a blueprint for disaster. We try to control the events in our lives and the people in our lives so we can feel secure. Yet no matter how hard we try, if we are relying solely on our human resources, we will surely fail.” To release control, we must realize that our humanness ALONE is not enough to bring us to the greater level expression we are seeking in life. What makes it difficult to let go is our attachment to an outcome—a job, or finding a partner. Our attachments cause us to hold on for dear life, whereas letting go for dear life is what has life transforming power. Letting go means letting go of the outcome and relaxing all concerns about the results. The Let God part means calling on your higher self, your Divine Nature. When we Let God, we become attuned to our spiritual consciousness and open to new ideas and attitudes = energy for creative living rather than defensive living. (excepted from a Sunday lesson by Rev.

ifu (Teacher) James Foo who lives in Toronto, has been coming to Ottawa to give Qi-Matic Qigong workshops since 2011. His close contact with the Medical Community, his special abilities, and his knowledge of Chinese Medicine, have made his Qi-Matic Qigong special and different from others. Through the years he has helped many who came to his workshop or as clients. The following are a few testimonials: Healing: Sifu’s private healing sessions are awesome. He can see (actually see the energy) what is wrong and remove any energetic blocks. He has helped me several times this way – one with a meridian blockage that had been contributing to a bladder infection and once with back pain. Also, I had had a two year-long digestive system issue and Sifu correctly saw that the issue was not physical but caused by emotions. This was indeed confirmed when I had the emotional clearing done at a later date – the condition was simply gone overnight. And, incidentally, although it had caused me great and prolonged distress, all the Dr’s testing could find nothing physically wrong – further confirmation of what Sifu found. Teaching: Sifu is one of my favourite spiritual teachers. He is the most advanced and adventurous teacher I have known – never sticking to any set of rules that someone else made up but always researching, trying new things and bringing new information to his students. The teachings are ever changing and always exciting and new. One of the most valuable things I have learned, in a practical sense, was a technique he taught which I use every single night to fall asleep. After over 10 years of struggling with sleep I find that his new technique works every time – for falling asleep at first and also when I wake up in the middle of the night. (this is the ‘528 8’ technique) - By Wendy. I have attended several of James Foo’s workshops and have learned many both interesting and useful things.  There is much to learn from this generous and knowledgeable teacher.  I›ve been especially happy and astonished to have been able to clear away pain from several people by dealing with energy blockages. - By Abbie I have attended many of Sifu James workshops over the last few years and found them to be very helpful both personally and professionally. As a Human Being, on my own healing path, I used the techniques to move forward. As a Reiki Practitioner and Teacher, I have used many of the healing techniques he offers as an adjunct to the Reiki in the sessions I offer. But most of all, his sessions are fun as well as informative. Sifu’s goal is to help us all access our “Inner Healer”. Many, many, thanks Sifu James. - By Katherine

“I was taking a few weight loss herbs for about a month to a month and a half and they weren’t really helping. I added the Body Image Essence to my regime and I started losing the weight. I lost about 10 lbs, which was my goal.” L.G., Ohio, USA

Bathing Suits & Tree Essences


oes a bathing suit have anything to do with consciousness or vibrational healing? Well, I would say, EVERYTHING! Picture this: You are invited to a cottage by a lake with sandy beaches or you are going to a pool party, and you need a new bathing suit. How do you feel? You stomach turns and you remember the last experience of purchasing this garment. You walk into a store, pick up a few and hope they will help cover the extra bulging. You walk towards the changing room and you notice the ‘poster on the wall’ with a perfect model, perfect bathing suit, perfect beach, perfect …. You enter the “torture” chamber. The lighting is bright, you almost look green and you now think you should have gone to those tanning sessions. You try one on, look in the mirror and say, “NOPE,” not that one. The sales person keeps bringing different models, different sizes and it gets worse. You make a decision…. You are not going to the beech nor to any pool party until you lose those 20 pounds. So tell me, does this story sound familiar? The story is just a caricature…but what are you truly looking for? Is it merely to fit nicely in a bathing suit your size and feel comfortable? Or, is it to feel better about yourself and be more confident? When you leave the store, you will probably be determined to go on that DIET or use that coupon for a 3 months membership at the gym AGAIN. We all try to make sensible choices to reach a healthy and happy life but there is another level to look at. You may have heard the expression, “We eat our emotions.” Understanding patterns, becoming more aware of emotions are part of our ability to achieve success. We have been so conditioned to improve, to achieve, to change. How to do that? The key is to learn the art of witnessing, observing. Vibrational tree essences reach a very deep place within us and help awaken the beauty and confidence that resides inside each and every one of us. One combination essence in particular supports us when it comes to how we perceive ourselves. It is called the Body Image Essence, and for some people, it has made all the difference.


“Most of my life I have struggled with my weight. I have attempted and failed many, many different diets and weight control procedures. I purchased BODY IMAGE from Canadian Forest Tree Essences and in 4 months have lost over 30 lbs. This product is truly amazing, I have not felt like I’m starving myself to death and substantially have cut back on my food intake without any conscious attempt to do so.” J.B. Ontario, Canada May the trees support your process of self-discovery and gaining confidence in your actions!

Survivors of Suicide:

Healing Comes from Compassionate Understanding


dedicate this article to Teddy, my late husband and soul mate, who took his last breath on this earth March 23/2001, upon completing suicide. Consequently, I became dedicated to the work of reaching Survivors of Suicide, those who are grieving a loved one, or family member who died by suicide. My personal trauma offers me a much more sensitive perspective on which to draw from. One of the complexities of mourning a suicide involves the added shock of a sudden death, in which the bereaved may not feel they had the chance to ask or say what they needed to. Only 1 in 15 leaves a note to explain their reasoning, or say goodbye. The second tier of this grief involves a violent death. Many mourners suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, particularly if they have discovered the body, as I had. This often adds to a sense of sur-realness, or not fitting in with the rest of grieving society. The support system of survivors of suicide may be weaker than those afflicted with other types of mourning. Loved ones may pull away due to their own sense of helplessness and discomfort, leaving them with a further sense of isolation and loss. Survivors

require guidance regarding how to talk to children about the manner in which their loved one died. Postdeath experiences including dreams, along with visits from the deceased, are often more prevalent in these survivors. Due to the many complexities of this process, survivors of suicide may get stuck in any particular phase of grieving, or take much longer to complete them. Due to all of these challenges survivors require enough safety to share their story with others, whom they feel can understand the uniqueness of their pain. There are few resources for survivors in the Ottawa region, as The SOS Support Program, once sponsored by the Canadian Mental Health Association, had been discontinued. I am currently considering restarting this Ottawa group, as I feel it’s need, and requirement for specific training and experience, to assist those in this very special category of mourners.

Taking Care of Ourselves

Written by Alexis Nicol aking care of ourselves is one of most wonderful gifts we can receive. By doing so, we are placing our mind, body and soul in a state of grace and gratitude. Our energy becomes more vibrant, resonating to those we come into contact with, like our family members, friends and even those we deal with while out doing our daily activities. What I love is to receive a Reiki and/or reflexology treatment. I find this to be one of the most relaxing, calming and reinvigorating things I can do for myself. Each treatment seems to connect, balance and give me exactly what I need at that moment in my life. Receiving a session once every month or two seems to keep me going for a good while. My clients will often comment on how much better they feel afterward especially if they waited too long. In my experience, I have noticed that by incorporating Reiki with Reflexology it tends to bring the added advantage of receiving their benefits on a deeper energetic level. Of course, any time of year is a good time to take care of ourselves, but the summer is a wonderful time to treat your feet. We tend to be out and about doing a lot more running around. Our days are longer, we’re busy entertaining, travelling and our lovely, well worn feet are more exposed to the elements that ever. There is plethora of information on the internet about reflexology and Reiki. I find a great option is to actually speak to the practitioner(s) you are drawn to, you can ask them about your personal concerns and relevant questions. It’s always best to make an informed decision whether this is for you or not. Whatever you choose to do to take care of yourself, I wish you all the best in taking a “step” toward enjoying a relaxing summer.

Sri Chinmoy Answers

Question: What is the difference between admiration and jealousy? SRI CHINMOY: In sincere admiration, you have the feeling of an ideal in your life. Perhaps you cannot do what other people have done, but you admire them and their actions. That means that you have a spontaneous eagerness to achieve or grow into the very thing those people have achieved. This kind of sincere admiration is not a sign of inferiority. Rather it is often a sign of the reciprocal recognition of souls. Jealousy, however, is something altogether different. If you are jealous of someone’s achievement, you will feel that you are ready to stab that person if you are given the chance. You may try to hide your jealousy but the very presence of jealousy inside you is extremely harmful. Sometimes jealousy comes from a feeling of competition. We want to surpass the achievements of others. But let us not compete with others to show our supremacy. Instead, let us think of the necessity for our progress. Let us only try to transcend our own capacities. If we spend our time cherishing negative thoughts about others then, in effect, we are making that person our master. We should be very careful of how much time we spend in thinking of others. If we waste time thinking of others with our doubt, jealousy, anger and other negative forces, then our own progress will be delayed. We should not criticise anybody or speak ill of anybody. We have enough problems of our own. Let us not criticise; let us strive only for our own perfection. We shall be responsible for ourselves and let others be responsible for themselves. In this way, we will all have ample freedom to reach our own goals. What is of paramount importance is our attitude as an individual. We have to feel that we are transcending our capacities, not for our own glory but in order to increase the capacity and improve the standard of the world. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Cleaning the Garden Summer Solstice Celebration By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC ow that the snow is gone and the warm weather is here to stay, it’s time to get busy and clean out the garden of all the weeds and leaves that were left over from the winter. You will have to spend time trimming back your plants, turning the soil and then giving them a good dose of fertilizer.

How much time do you spend cleaning out the garden that resides in your mind, in your heart? Have you ever considered this to be a required task as well? I would argue that we all need to do some “spring cleaning” to keep ourselves functioning at an optimal level. I suspect that you would not dare run your computer without an anti-virus program able to protect it from all of the malicious attacks that are being launched on a daily basis. We get bombarded regularly with negative thoughts and many of these manage to attach themselves in our psyche. If you want to grow, if you want to move forward I would argue that you need to take some time to clean out your own personal garden of all unwanted ideas and beliefs that are not serving you anymore. Sit down in a quiet place and reflect…go inside and take note of what comes up. Challenge your beliefs, your behaviors and replace them with ones that do support your new and expanding vision of what you want to create. Make your garden bloom!

n the northern hemisphere Summer Solstice occurs between June 20th and June 22nd. This year for those of us living in Ottawa the earth will reach its maximum tilt towards the sun (which represents solstice) Monday June 20th at 6:34 pm. Celebrating solstice is an ancient and global experience. We see people from all walks of life, traditions, religions and beliefs engaging in varied rituals to honor this special day. Additionally, regardless of the location, Summer Solstice celebrations are often about bounty, growth, nourishment, inner fire and our ability and courage to follow through and take our experiences to their full expression. It is a time to honor the value of light and our own potential to lighten and brighten up. At the same time it is a willingness to honour our shadow and include it as our expressions and manifestations. There are many ways to celebrate Summer Solstice, which include private meditations; connections with nature; expressions of gratitude; and dance. Yoga also enables to bring all of the above mentioned qualities to light and remind ourselves to breathe life into them. Sunday June 19th I am offering a Summer Solstice Mini Yoga Retreat (1:30-4:30 pm) that will include basic and yet integrative asanas (yoga postures), visualization, breath consciousness, meditation and relaxation designed to welcome the external and internal summer.

Quantum-Touch Therapy:

Breakthrough in Energy Healing

The Eloquent Solution to Wellness Using Distant Healing

In Ottawa area serving Ontario & Western Quebec

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach, Author of Forthcoming book ‘Life Begins at “70”’


ecently I’ve become more aware of a part of my practice that has not been front and centre, and that is the practice of doing distant healing. I’ve used it often over the past 20 or more years, and more so when I learned Quantum-Touch therapy, and the method Richard Gordon recommended to use with distant healing, and now as a member of the Quantum-Touch therapy Facebook group, I’ve been using Distant Healing more than ever, and am even more impressed with the results that are being reported to us from those who request our assistance. One of my clients called me recently, to tell me about her brother who had fallen through the wooden floor in the barn to the cement floor in the stable below. He landed on his head, and the wood from the floor above landed on top of him. I stated that I would work on him for 5 minutes daily for the next 2 weeks, and took the story and my commitment to the FB group. That was on a Tuesday, and on Thursday, we had some news from the doctor, and that was that there were no broken bones, he could respond to questions with less need to concentrate, knew his name, could recall recent events, and not only recognized his family members, was asking them about their recent illnesses. This was my personal experience. In another case, a member of this group asked for help with a young early school aged child who had a brain tumour. There had been some kind of therapy and the doctors were contemplating surgery. The group worked on this boy using Quantum-Touch Distant Healing tools, and after about 3 days, the doctors had examined him, and stated that with the improvement they were witnessing, there would be no need to do a surgery.

Shifting Upwards

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


n these rapidly changing times it can feel hard to get a grip on anything solid. In this ascension time we live in, our one and only goal is to raise our consciousness so we can move along with Gaia into her new home in the fifth dimension. This is not an easy process and many of us feel ungrounded, uprooted, anxious, fearful and depressed. As a counsellor these are the most common issues coming forward these days. Add to that sleeplessness and this list represents to some degree what most of us are experiencing in this wildly changing time. So what can you do to feel like you are doing everything you can to elevate your consciousness so you may make the leap from 3rd dimension to 5th? We are all currently on the bridge of 4th dimension popping back and forth between the two dimensions. This explains why we often feel so ungrounded. I have two strong suggestions. The first is the Inner Child work, which I have been championing since the early 90’s when I began my work with John Bradshaw. We have to clear our subconscious mind, our emotional body (which is our inner child) of all the hurt, frightened, angry, shamed and resentful patterning we are carrying from childhood. Having been a counsellor for over 25 years and having worked with many modalities, this is by far the quickest and most effective for healing the childhood wounds that continue to rule our lives.

This incredible system works with Fractals, Solfeggio tones, and digital programs of Divine Healing Codes to heal, balance, restore, relax, expand consciousness, and increase wellbeing in a myriad of ways. Developed by Dr. Kathy Forti after a near death experience in which her new 8, 9 and 10th dimensional guides let her know she would be bringing in a totally new healing system that would eclipse the old ways of healing and be a major tool for bringing people to ascension. If you read her book Fractals of God, or watch her YouTube videos, you will get a very clear explanation of how this system came to be here at this time. If you would be interested in a free demo of the TrinFintiy8 (T8) please call me at 613-236-8852. My partner and I will be offering group-sharing sessions on the T8 on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. Each night will have a different issue we will be working on. Please call if you are interested. There will be a $10 fee to attend. It is a great way to get introduced to the vast healing potential of the T8. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, OM- 613-236-8852

Why Do We?... Channelled by Lisa Virtue


s humans, you are often looking outside of yourselves for purpose. “Why do we do what we do? Why do we choose what we choose?” All of the questions you ask are about your role in experience. Your reason for being, existing. “How do we best ‘be’ in this world? What is acceptable and how do we do it?” Whereas the questions are backwards. The seeking, reversed. The expression that you are isn’t in question. How you decide to perceive it is. How you live is up to your preferences. How you ARE, is what we are getting at. How are you in relation to others? How are you in connection with those you love? What is the essence of your being saying? It doesn’t matter what you do or how things come about. What is important is how you function with what you’ve got. Your being is showing you in every moment what it is. It is controlling your very environment. How you are, is the point. Decide on an alternative direction and your being goes right along with you. So it does not matter what you are choosing or even the why of it. What matters is the ISness itself. BE and you will flow. BE and knowing comes. Acknowledge that your state simply is, you are what is underneath it ALL. Dear ones. Knowing more about anything in particular doesn’t shift your being. That is about living experience. Rest now in the knowing that your ISness is enough. It is perfection. The rest, an experience. Temporary. Transient in nature. Who you are is beyond the paltry limits of this reality. Why are we sharing this? Because it changes your relationship with creation. BE. Know. That is all that matters. Live, and you will see change. Stop being about the intimate details of the shifts, changes and ways of expressing and you will know more fully the extent to which you truly exist. Change what is, and it changes. BE and you always are.
