In this illuminating evening Caroline Myss will investigate healing as a mystical science. Helping the audience understand how the body/mind/spirit functions as an integrated system with emphasis on the power of our soul to participate in our healing.

5-time NY Times Best Seller Caroline Myss to Visit Ottawa on April 4th

Caroline Myss is the author of Anatomy of the Spirit, Sacred Contracts, Invisible Acts of Power, and Why People Don’t Heal and How They Can. An internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness and mysticism, she holds degrees in journalism, theology, intuition, and energy medicine. She has appeared on two highly successful public television programs, and on The Oprah Show. The healing arts are now a part of our culture – a potpourri of wisdom, ancient remedies, modern knowledge, and allopathic medicine. Beyond this emerging alchemical pharmacy is the added fact that our consciousness has evolved. When we are ill, we seek out those who understand that the body/mind/spirit function as an integrated system. Our healing process inevitably draws us to matters of the soul, including the power of our soul to participate in our healing. Caroline aims to help us with this process in a beautiful spirit filled presentation. We hope you’ll join us. http://www.iamgenie.org/ • http://bronsoncentre.ca

POLARAIDTM

Energy that heals and rejuvenates Georges Lakhovsky & Nikola Tesla PolarAidTM supports well-being with natural energy. It restores the body’s disrupted energy flows that create illnesses and health issues. By holding PolarAidTM disc in your hand, you become a supreme healer without a single day of training.

SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS WITH: “I was working with the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic devices that go beyond today’s conventional medicine for thousands of years. But PolarAid impressed me by its ease of use and efficiency. It is a small device with no supply of electrical power, but it achieves fantastic effects and results in a person who uses it. Many years of my learning and efforts have been brought into question when I realized that every person, without a single day of training, with PolarAid in his/her hands becomes the most powerful, supreme healer. PolarAid proved to be extraordinary within my gynecological practice. I advised my patients to sit on PolarAid while drinking coffee and talking with their friends. It was a very satisfying therapeutic time to resolve all sorts of their problems, ranging from the most banal vaginal infections to more serious gynecological problems. At the same time they would get rid of some persistent urinary symptoms or annoying hemorrhoids and their painful menstrual cramping would disappear. Using the same procedure, sitting on a disk or holding PolarAid between their legs while lying down, the men would recover their prostate, improve their libido and their sex life. About the author: Dr Dino Tomic, Specialist in Gynecology and Obstetrics for more than 20 years. He deals with exploring other treatment options beyond the limited domain of conventional medicine: quantum and bioresonance medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture and energy techniques.

Permission to Love

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. he heart of our being is rooted in love. Without love we have no genuine interaction, no commitment to each other, and no reference to our Spirit. Without love of self and others we do not evolve. This is how much it matters to every organism on Earth right now. We often hear people misuse “love” when they mean conditional acceptance, expectation, lust, neediness, control, or abuse. True love never diminishes us. True love is a purity of consciousness. It embraces the totality of understanding of what it means to be Divine. It holds us steady in our inner knowing, awakens us to our vastness, and welcomes our unity. To be love: Building a loving relationship with ourselves is our first healing priority. In self-love we permit ourselves to flow with peace no matter what is transpiring. There is no condition that can deny this: nothing that was done by us or done to us can change this. Our ego cannot keep us in our pain when we love ourselves through it. To be loved: To accept true love from others is also selflove. We don’t have to minimize or explain ourselves, nor accomplish or do anything in order to receive it. We do not have to prove ourselves – we are already valuable.

Daughter of Professor Krishnamurthy

What’s holding you back from self-love? I specialize in clearing stubborn limiting patterns. We can bring you freedom with Divine healing of your 12-dimensional self and clearing from the root level. pain & dis-ease  attachments  emotional triggers  traumas  ancestry  fears/phobias  karma  inorganic structures  addiction patterns  past life  limiting mental programs

To love: When a full heart for ourselves overflows then we love others. We carry the blessings of the Spirits of Christ to others as an effortless extension of our Highest Self. Freely sharing love sustains us. Loving in 2017: Love is our highest expression of God. Nobody needs to give us permission to love. Yet, because so much of our collective history has dampened and darkened our hearts, I do suggest that we consciously give this permission to ourselves now – declare it, so that we can all truly live in love!

Energize Your Life with Positive Thinking

W

hen you develop a truly positive mindset, you set yourself up for a happier and more fulfilling life. Living at a stressful and hectic pace tends to block joy and happiness, a more joyful existence is certain to be a welcome change! It might take a wee bit of practice to change your negative thought patterns into positive ideas that serve you better, but you CAN do it! Here are some strategies to invigorate your life: 1. Tell yourself you can do it. Sometimes, a simple thought that you repeat over and over again can get you through a tough or challenging experience. “I can do it, I can do it, I can do it” is a great mantra to keep you striving for the excellence you desire. 2. Write what’s good about you. Even though it may feel a bit strange to do it, get a pen and paper and start listing your positive attributes. Do some bragging about yourself.

Acknowledge that you will do something. Rather than being disappointed about something you didn’t do well, vow you’ll work to achieve it in the future. Use the words, “I am.”

3. Notice that you’re not saying, “I’m going to try” or “I might give it a go.” You’re stating, “I am” following through. It’s positive and affirmative. Practice thinking and speaking in these terms. The more definitive you can be, the more likely your life will advance in positive ways. 4. Have a sense of humour. If you ordered a new bed and it doesn’t fit in the room when the delivery guys bring it, try to laugh about it. Recognize it’s not an unsolvable issue—you can return the bed

and shop for another one. Smile and say that tomorrow is another day to get it right. 5. Tell yourself you can handle it if something doesn’t work out. Being positive means you’ll land on your feet, regardless of what happens. You’ll get through it. When you truly know this and live life like you believe it, you’ll be one of the most positive people alive. When you begin to re-focus your life toward positivity, you’ll discover a passion for life you’ve never before experienced. You’ll bring vim and vigor to your life each day through practicing these positive methods and mantras.

Stress: A signpost to rehabilitation

W

hile all of us experience stress, some of us experience it chronically. Stress can be seen as a demon, which is bad for the health of our body and mind. However, we know that if we take care of the original cause of stress we can alleviate it greatly. Realistically, there is a message inherent to the stress that we’re experiencing. To explore this further let’s practice the three syncs of body, emotion and mind -- a method of sensing into our experience more directly, such as: • Feeling into my body, how does the stress feel? Do I experience tightness? Difficulty breathing? ; • If I feel into my emotions what do I sense -- fear? Sadness?; and • If I feel into my mind what types of thoughts surround my anxiety? Perhaps thoughts like, “I can’t do this” and/or “I don’t want this!”? Simply doing the three syncs opens door to the possibilities of change. It starts with a gentle “presencing” of our states. Looking away, or finding ways to bypass my body, emotions and mind will only provide a momentarily respite. Looking or sensing from a clear non-judgemental perspective is the way to not only alleviate our stress, but it’s also a path of compassion and awareness. Through this method we are beginning to develop a natural resilience through the capacity to look from a compassionate perspective. This helps us to breathe more deeply, to relax our body, shift our mindset and lead a lifestyle that is regenerated, a life that is “related”. A life where I connect with my true self, where I’m living more and more within my life’s purpose. In my sessions with you we explore the levels of evolutionary stress and integration stress. The hypnosis part is tailored to your needs, in itself it is very suiting, relaxing and it empowers your objectives. I email you the recording for

Separating With Your Values Intact

M

any spouses look upon the process of negotiating a Separation Agreement with distaste and apprehension. It’s not just the depletion of resources (time, money and energy) they fear. Often they are afraid to engage in what they believe will be a process that brings out the worst in them, that doesn’t really let them negotiate in a way that feels right to them. Though they don’t usually say so in so many words, what these couples are really expressing is that they want to separate in a way that is in keeping with their values. Talking about values and Separation Agreements in the same sentence may seem surprising. Yet there are actually several ways to separate with your values intact. 1. Choose mediation. The mediation mentality of dealing with conflict in a constructive manner is completely different from the traditional adversarial process that can subtly encourage couples to fight in an unhealthy way, to take extreme positions on the issues, and to “posture” for the sake of the negotiations, rather than dealing openly, honestly and fairly with the questions they need to resolve. 2. Focus on your values. Some couples are already aware of their values when they come to mediation. But more often than not people have never taken the time to expressly identify their values. A mediator can help elicit a couple’s core values and then structure a process that is in keeping with these. Typical values that a mediator might draw out from a couple include their desire for openness and respect in the way they talk to each other, their deep need to be heard and understood (even if not agreed with), their wish to do what is “fair,” (even if they disagree on exactly what this means), the desire to reach a cooperative settlement without resorting to Court, and the priority they place on their children’s well-being. 3. Write your Separation Agreement in a way that includes your values. A Separation Agreement is a legal document and, as such, must contain some clauses that seem dense and hard to understand. But a Separation Agreement can also be more than just an impersonal legal piece of paper, and its language can, in parts, reflect a couple’s values. Along with the legal clauses dividing the pensions and RRSP’s, and the long “boilerplate” release clauses at the end of every Agreement, a Separation Agreement can also contain more “human” clauses, such as a statement of a

These clauses, which a couple can write themselves if they like, can not only personalize an Agreement for parents; they can also be important if their children read them in the future. (Children should not be reading their parents’ Separation Agreements, but many are notorious for seeking them out.) The children can see that, whatever the difficulties between their parents, they conducted themselves in a respectful, co-operative fashion. Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation.

Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

Essential Oils from A to Z

T

here are almost as many essential oils in the world as there are plants-which stands to reason because that is what the are derived from! We have over 100 therapeutic grade essential oils, far too many to describe each here, so I will share but a few. Amyris essential oil comes from a tree grown in Haiti or the Dominican Republic. Its claim to fame is that it smells very similar to sandalwood, but at a fraction of the price! And unlike sandalwood, the oil is processed from the bark of fallen branches, so the tree itself won’t be overharvested. Copaiba balsam comes from the sap of trees native to South America. It is reputed to be a great wound healer, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Coffee essential oil could be diffused in a room to clean and freshen the air. Its antioxidant and stimulating properties could also be beneficial in skin care (diluted). Champaka essential oil is derived from the flowers of the plant. Used in perfumery due to its ‘intense, intoxicating’ scent. It is reputed to be good for meditation, as an aphrodisiac and to enhance well-being. We love the scent of jamarosa, an oil derived from the roots of a grass grown in India. Like champaka, it used

extensively in perfumes, but is also reported to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. I have to mention two of the eucalyptus varieties we carry: lemon-scented eucalyptus, along with being a mosquito repellent, is said to help with colds, coughs and fevers. Black peppermint eucalyptus is a favourite because it can help with congestion more gently in young children and the elderly. Tobacco essential oil is another oil used in perfume blends. It is also a spiritual plant for First Nations. It is reported to help calm the nerves, so may be helpful in cases of stress and exhaustion. Xanthoxylum (okay, it doesn’t start with a ‘Z’ but sounds like it does) is made from the fruit and leaves of a tree grown in Nepal, where it is traditionally used to heal respiratory and digestive complaints. Come in and see the difference plant medicine can make in your life!  ©2017 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St in Centretown.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: What actually is death and why am I afraid?

SRI CHINMOY: You have two rooms: a living room and a bedroom. In your living room you work and talk to people. This room is called life. In the other room, where you sleep, you need not talk to anybody, for there you go to rest—either for a long or a short period of time. This room is called death. Needless to say, that room is also yours. You are afraid of death because you feel that death is not yours, whereas life is. You think that life is home, certainty, whereas death is elsewhere and all uncertainty. But this is not true. Both life and death are in you. Right now death is required; it helps us in a sense. It allows us to take some rest. Then when we come back, we come back with new hope, new light and new aspiration. When the soul leaves the body, it carries with it the essence of the earthly experiences it acquired, and while taking rest, it assimilates the essence of its past. Then it starts to prepare itself for a new journey, choosing a new birth, a new environment, new circumstances, a new personality and a new mission. Then, with the approval of God, it descends into the physical world once again. Right now you are afraid of death because you think of yourself as your body, your mind, your senses. But a day will come when, on the strength of your aspiration, prayer and meditation, you will think of yourself not as the body but as the soul. The physical body may leave the earth, but the soul, which is a conscious portion of God, will remain consciously in God and for God throughout Eternity. If you know that the soul is your real reality, you will not have any fear of death. The moment you feel that you need God and He needs you, the moment you feel God inside you, before you and around you, then death no longer exists for you.

xperiencing your life by seeing and living as a child is refreshing. Doing so affords one greater freedom. For example, if you can, just imagine that you have been invited to a party and that you have never been to one before. You wouldn’t know what to expect and you’d be excited, open to all the new things that you’d see and the people you will meet. It would be an occasion to feel and sense for yourself, not one influenced or tainted by another’s past experiences. Over the years we become conditioned to what is to be expected of us and that things should be done a certain way. It has become so important for us to behave in a particular manner that if we deviate from the “norm” it can be perceived as affronting another’s personal beliefs. They might react with embarrassment, anger or even feel betrayed and hurt. They mightn’t realize that by marching to our own beat that we are indeed following the prodding from an Omnipotent Intelligence that lives within us all. Isn’t it fun watching the antics of children when they try something new, observing them as they discover life on their own terms. So why and when does it change to having to do things in the same way they have been done for generations? Why are we so afraid to be different? I do understand that sometimes it is for our own protection but I think we hold on too much to the fears our predecessors have passed down to us throughout the ages. It is so heartening to see a child that doesn’t react with fear but with curiosity, instinctively following their inner guidance flowing within them. As you listen to your own intuitive guidance life becomes invigorating and new. We open ourselves up to discovering the joys we are meant to experience. Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul.

Soul Mind Body Medicine®

By Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha ver the past few decades, various forms of mindbody medicine have become more and more popular, to the point of being widely accepted. These modalities emphasize the mind-body connection, which encompasses the effects of our psychological and emotional states on our physical well-being and the power of conscious intent, relaxation, meditation, belief, expectation, and mind over matter to affect our health. As both a Western- and Eastern-trained medical practitioner, I think mind-body medicine is a step forward, but it is not enough. It neglects the most important factor, the soul. The soul has consciousness, intelligence, and creativity. It also has power to heal and bless. Soul Mind Body Medicine’s healing techniques work on the soul and the consciousness of the body’s systems, organs, and cells. These techniques directly and instantaneously influence matter inside the cells and energy outside the cells. They also work on the emotional body to heal emotional imbalances like depression, anxiety, fear, anger, and grief. They work on the mental body to heal mental imbalances such as delusions and confusion. And, they work on the spiritual body, giving you techniques for clearing negative karma.

O

The techniques work by recognizing the effects of message or spiritual blockages. Matter and energy are carriers of message. Message is soul or spirit; it communicates with and influences matter and energy. If you apply Soul Mind Body Medicine healing, the interplay between matter inside the cells and energy outside the cells will be adjusted and balanced. This is how the soul or message works to offer healing. It is also why prayer works as a healing agent and why soul over matter is the heart of Soul Mind Body Medicine. Soul Mind Body Medicine teaches ancient wisdom and practical techniques including chanting, meditation, movement practices, and more, that you can apply to optimize your health, boost the quality of your life, and help prolong your life. The techniques are simple and practical. You can learn them right away and apply them instantly. Soul Mind Body Medicine has already transformed many lives. It works.

Ankle Pain & Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac

T

he ankle joint is an intricate network of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. It is built for both strength and flexibility, as it needs to bear the weight of our body while also having the flexibility for the various surfaces we walk on. The ankle joint can be prone to various types of injury and pain and ankle pain may be experienced on the inside or outside of the ankle or along the back where the Achilles tendon connects the muscles in the lower leg to the heel bone. Most ankle pain results from a sprain, which occurs when the ankle rolls over the foot, causing a ligament to stretch or tear. Sprains are often sports-related but they can also occur when walking on an uneven surface of from taking a misstep.  Ankle pain can also be caused by injury to any of the bones, ligaments or tendons in the ankle. Any kind of ankle injury will also affect our gait or walking pattern and in a chain reaction, the knee joint, hip joint, SI joint and spine become involved and so ankle pain can have far-reaching consequences.

As with other pain or injuries in the body, Chinese medicine (TCM) usually diagnoses ankle pain and injury as a blockage or lack of proper circulation of blood and qi-energy in the affected area. These blockages lead to pain, weakness, and an inability for the ankle to heal properly because it cannot receive the proper nourishment to do so. Acupuncture helps to remove blockages, increase circulation of the blood and energy, and also resolve any imbalances in the meridians that may be causing a weakness in the ankle and leaving it prone to injury or strain. In the early stages of an injury, acupuncture can help to remove blockages and promote blood flow to the ankle, as well as relieve swelling and pain. With injuries in the middle stage of healing, acupuncture can help alleviate swelling and pain in the ankle, and promote healing of the tissues and bones. In later stages of injury, where the ankle has become rigid and weak, acupuncture can help to relax the tendons and remove blockages to regain movement and strength in the ankle. In all cases, acupuncture helps to strengthen the body and promote better functioning so that the body is better able to heal and to resolve the problem fully. Whether we are dealing with acute or chronic ankle problems, acupuncture can help to boost the body’s healing so that we can regain our health and return to our regular day to day functioning.

PATHWORK: Transitioning from Isolation to Union

I

n these challenging and chaotic times, it is easy to find ourselves struggling with feelings of confusion, fear, helplessness and even despair, as we observe world events from a predominantly dualistic perspective. But the Pathwork lectures remind us of a bigger vision of our purpose in these transformational times. Lecture 75: The Great Transition in Human Development tells us that there are two basic currents in the universe, the love force (unity) and the egocentric principle (dualistic) by which most human beings still live and that the transition from self-centered isolation to the state of union with “all that is” is the most essential step on our spiritual path. However, we tend to harbour a belief that only as a separate, unique individual can we have dignity and a chance for happiness. In our separateness, we build walls made up of fear-based misconceptions, about others and ourselves, in an effort to protect ourselves. As we move along the path to psychological and spiritual maturity, examining our basic faults of selfwill, pride, and fear and how these manifest in false beliefs and misconceptions, we gain understanding and strength about our own lives and life in general. At some point, we reach a time for a new evaluation from an ethical and spiritual viewpoint. Recognizing that we are one with all of creation frees us from the inner prisons we build, opening the door to true happiness and dignity. The first tentative steps in the transition from separateness to a state of love are the cultivation of self-knowledge and self-acceptance. Through exploration, meditation and mutual support, we can experience moving from isolation to union within ourselves and between one another, communities, and countries.

Grounding and the Art of Creating Sacred Space: Creating Boundaries and Safe Spaces – Part I

Breakthrough in Energy Healing

Offering Updated model for the first time

AILEEN MCKENNA

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

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach, Certified Facilitator, Open Space Technology, and Small Group Processes

I

have been working and being astonished with my work with energy for more than 25 year now. Before becoming fully aware of how the energy of others affected me, I had no idea as to what was happening, except that I would make decisions that seemed totally foreign to me about what I would want to do, and just didn’t fit with who I was. When I began to study energy healing, I was able to grasp how the energy and thought forms of others, could have an impact on me when a friend introduced me to a book that was actually about preparing our energy bodies for the coming times. As I began to use these tools to ground myself, to clear my energy field, to maintain the integrity of my energy field, I was astonished the difference in how I felt, and gradually I began to get the idea of who I was when I was able to clear the energy of others from my field therefore, preventing the imposition of others on my being. Before I learned these tools, I had really no idea as to what was happening within my being when I was in close proximity with some people in various circumstances. I could only tell that sometimes I would be feeling great, and then a certain person, or group of people would enter the space, and I’d feel exhausted, or confused, or really upset. However, I also realized that at other times, other people would enter my space, or I, theirs, and I’d feel really uplifted, and energized. With the information from that text, I began to understand how much I had been influenced from my very early beginnings in life, from my family, friends, society, and as I grew up, from teachers, fellow students, and indeed, from my church, government, and indeed, from everyone in my world. The vibration of the planet is increasing and the magnetics decreasing, therefore, energy as thoughtforms move through time and space much more quickly than previously and without the interference of strong magnetics. We are encouraged to spend time with positive people and those who help us to feel good and uplifted. We are now realizing that negative thoughts, violent thoughts, particularly fearful thoughts affect our bodies and our minds in destructive ways. Many illnesses in our bodies and minds can be traced back to strong negative input often in the form of guilt, from earlier in our lives. The wonderful part of working with energy, is that nothing is permanent. If we take the steps we can learn

air Analysis will identify the toxicity hiding in your brain and body. Perhaps you are hosting “Cadmium”. Even low readings on a hair analysis is a reliable indicator that a person has more of the metal inside. Sometimes Cadmium might not be revealed on early hair tests because the metal is so deeply buried and requires time to uncover and dislodge from the storage sites. Cadmium is among the most toxic of the heavy metals. It is a common metal found in cigarette smoke, tap water, coffee, some processed and refined foods

such as hydrogenated oils, and in foods from the sea, especially shellfish of all kinds. It is found in marijuana, and in cigarette papers. Cadmium is involved in all of the major diseases of our time, including cancer, diabetes, arthritic syndromes, heart disease, kidney disease, and others. In males, Cadmium easily replaces zinc in the testicles and prostate gland and the toxicity is associated with impotence, For women, Cadmium toxicity makes them more sexual but it also makes them more like a macho man with difficulties in monogamous, close relationships and less in touch with their true, deep feminine nature. The average half life of cadmium in the human body is 27 years.  This means that cadmium does not tend to leave the body very much on its own but when a person pursues a Nutritional Balancing program which includes Sauna Therapy, Cadmium will slowly be eliminated, leading to many health benefits. “Dr. Lawrence Wilson has written an excellent book, “Sauna Therapy,” which is the best resource I have read to date on sauna use. As a nutritional consultant, Wilson recommends not spending more than 20 minutes in a near-infrared lamp sauna unless you’re also on a nutritional balancing program. The reason for this is because the near-infrared can produce profound changes in your body chemistry. While most of these changes will be beneficial, if you have very unbalanced mineral ratios you could potentially worsen the problem. For men considering this regimen, I would caution them to protect their testes by holding an ice pack near their scrotum while they are in the sauna, as the testes weren’t designed for these types of high temperatures and there are some reports of impaired fertility in men who use sauna regularly.” Dr Mercola For more information on Nutritional Balancing and Hair Analysis contact TheHairAnalyst.com or email: boostpotential@yahoo.com

What Do We Know About our Lymphatic System and Its Importance

M

ost of us have heard of lymph glands regarding breast cancer and removal of the breast and the lymph glands near and under the arm pit. But do we really know the importance these glands play in our bodies? I will attempt to explain their importance. The Lymphatic System is part of the circulatory system and a vital part of the immune system consists of a multitude network of fine lymphatic vessels through the entire body. They are similar to the circulatory system vein’s and capillaries. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells involved in the immune system to defend foreign bodies. However it has multiple functions, ie, is responsible for delivering nutrients to the cells while carrying away excess water, cellular waste, and bacterial viruses and toxins which accumulate in the skin tissue during the metabolic process. It transports white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bones. It absorbs and transports fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestion system. Sometimes this system does not work well. The symptoms that we can look for are: Chronic inflammation, cellulites, skin problems, ie: acne, migraines, swollen skin tissue often of legs and arms. Arms are especially noticed when a breast and lymph glands are removed. This swelling in the tissues is called Lymphedema or Lymphatic Edema and is a condition of localized fluid system causes by a compromised lymphatic system. However it can develop in any part of the body. Treatment for lymphedema depends on its cause and includes wearing compression stockings or sleeves proper diet and skin care, elevation of the arm or leg

The Merchant and the Diamond Ian Prattis

T

here was a merchant who lived in a far-away land. He was very wealthy and built a trading empire that brought him great riches, yet in the midst of all his wealth and fame he felt a lack, that there was something he did not have. One night he had a dream and remembered it very clearly. He dreamed there was a monk sitting under a tree at the forest’s edge, and that this monk had something special to give to him. He was not accustomed to dreaming, so he felt this dream held a special portent. At sunrise the next day he left his house and walked to the edge of the town where he lived. He saw the monk, just as in his dream, wearing a saffron robe, sitting quietly under the shade of a tree at the edge of the forest. He looked so peaceful. As the merchant approached, the monk opened his eyes and smiled gently to him. The merchant stopped, bowing respectfully, and said: “Dear monk, I had a dream about you last night, that you would be sitting here on the edge of the forest and that you had something for me. What is it that you have for me?” The monk paused for a moment then slowly reached into his canvas bag. He brought out a huge diamond as big as a man’s fist. It sparkled and shone in the sunlight, dazzling the eyes and senses of the merchant. It was the most beautiful and valuable diamond the merchant had ever seen. The monk said, “Have you come for this?” The merchant without hesitating replied, “Oh yes, thank you so much, this is wonderful. I have always wanted to possess such a magnificent diamond.” He wrapped the diamond inside his jacket and returned home. Once there he placed the diamond in his front room. He closed the shutters and locked the doors to his house and stayed with the diamond, totally mesmerized and entranced by its beauty and purity. He did not go to work that day, nor did he eat or drink. He thought that this gift was the missing piece of his life and he wanted to bask in the glory of it. When he went to sleep that night, he placed the diamond on a small pedestal by his bedside, so that he could have it close by. Yet he could not sleep. He felt a strange disturbance within himself that he did not understand. He tossed and turned, not knowing what to do about the growing restlessness. Just before sunrise he rose, got dressed and carefully wrapped the diamond in a cloth, before setting off once more for the edge of the forest. The monk was sitting in the same place, deep in meditation. The peace that emanated from him calmed the restlessness that so disturbed the merchant. On hearing the merchant’s footsteps come closer and then stop before him, the monk opened his eyes and once more smiled very gently to the merchant. “Good morning my friend,” he said. “Are you not happy with the diamond?”

5 of the Most Powerful Hypnosis Principles to Attract Your Ideal Lover By Luke Michael Howard Ph.D Clinical Hypnotist www.LUKEnosis.com

I

’m going to share with you the most powerful hypnosis and Law of Attraction principles that will bring your ideal lover into your life. 1. Imagine what your ideal lover would look like. How tall are they? How much do they weigh? What is their hair colour? What is their eye colour? What’s their shoe size? How do they dress? What’s their style? Start to get a clear picture of whom you want to attract. 2. What values, virtues, and beliefs do they have? Physical beauty is great but it isn’t enough for a successful relationship. You need more. You need to connect emotionally. Ask yourself what values does my ideal love have? What do they believe about the world? What is important to them? Dig really deep here. 3. Write it all down! Write all of the characteristics and all of the metrics. Then stick it on your bathroom mirror so you can see it every day. 4. Read the list and visualize your ideal lover each and every day. Read it when you wake up every morning and then again just before you go to sleep. This is when your unconscious mind is the most impressionable. Your unconscious mind will work on it as you sleep without your conscious mind interfering. You do not

want your conscious mind to “try” to make it happen. This will only causes more suffering! 5. Record it on your phone or dictaphone. Record what your ideal love looks like, sounds like, and most importantly feels like. Listen to your narrative every day. This is your chance to create a new story of how you want your love life to be; not what it currently is. Bonus point... 6. Let it go! Get the hell out of the universe’s way and allow it deliver what you’ve asked for! Trust yourself and trust the universe. Let go and expect it to happen. You may just surprise yourself with what can happen to your love life within the next month.

The Power of the Decision

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC ave you ever noticed what happens when you finally “decide” to move forward with your decision? It’s like there is a sudden rush of energy that carries you forward, a new-found freedom, a feeling of liberation! I find it fascinating when this happen because, as humans, we are constantly faced with the need to make decisions. Unfortunately, we often get stuck in our indecisions which can have a negative impact on all areas of our lives. I would encourage you to take a moment and do an inventory of items that need to be addressed in these life arenas: Finances, Health and Wellness, Relationships, Career and Work, Social and Leisure, Personal Development and Spirituality. Is it the need to start putting money away for your retirement, is it the need to start taking better care of yourself, do you need to mend a broken relationship with someone or is it the time to apply for that new position at work? Regardless of which area of your life needs attention, deciding to address this issue will have a profound impact on you. The act of making that decision will help you reclaim your power which was lost to you. The Universe sees that and suddenly things start to go your way. The right people will show up in your life to help you along, that promotion you were looking for will happen, etc., etc., etc. Learn to pay attention to your feelings and take notice when you are on the fence about something. Unlock your personal power by standing firm and making your decisions. Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute. He is a Certified Retirement Coach, Certified Financial Planner as well as public speaker. He is the author of “The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness”. He conducts workshops and courses on the subject of winning the game of wealth creation.

After having had a chronic, digestive, autoimmune illness for nearly 20 years, I completely healed my “incurable” disease and am now living with incredible health, vitality and joy. I have found what works and what doesn’t; what the body and mind need to heal and what prevents that healing. This program is like a fire starter that, with your commitment, can completely change the way your body functions. In this program, we draw upon the wisdom of Evolutionary (ancestral) Diet, movement and socialization in order to get your body back to a state of vibrant health and wholeness. This Personal, One on One Program Is Right For You If: • You’ve had persistent digestive issues (bloating, diarrhea, constipation, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, unexplained or hard to get rid of belly fat, ADHD, chronic skin issues (eczema, acne, psoriasis), ear infections, Autoimmune Disorders) • You want to see what the body is capable of doing when you give it the proper tools, diet and nourishment • You want to help your body at the root of the dysfunction, rather than suppress your symptoms This program requires a 3 month commitment from you. It requires you to be open to finding out what emotional triggers you are still dealing with (by which your body has been compensating through illness or discomfort). It allows you to see exactly what your ideal diet looks like and what your body needs to be properly nourished. Specifically, during the 3 months you will learn and receive: • Exactly what foods are helping your belly and which foods are hurting your belly • A bio-individual diet and meal plan that allows you to shop and prepare amazing meals that will finally nourish your body and mind • Discover what your cravings mean and how to see them from a different perspective so you can heal them • A detoxification program to eliminate the burden of heavy metals and environmental toxicity • Learn about the importance of ancestral movement and find out what kinds of movement best suits your body type • How your past traumas and wounds may still be playing a role in your body and how to let them go Our work together incorporates nutritional and energetic strategies for the whole body-mind. Powerful energetic techniques can help to heal old traumas and wounds that are still hindering your physical and emotional freedom. Testimonial from Sandra S. ~ Ottawa, ON “Ann is exceptionally tuned in, and connects immediately at a soul-to-soul level. Her soul light is so bright that I experienced a delightful, joyful feeling of ‘coming home’ when I first spoke with her on the phone. Ann is one of those rare beings that emanates a clear and pure, joyful and life-affirming energy. A gifted healer, body intuitive, and seer, Ann somehow perfectly balances her encyclopedic knowledge of the body and its energy systems, food, nutrition, and supplements (and so much more!), with her deep ageless wisdom and intuitive knowing. The result is a very effective structure and process for guiding the healing journey. I signed up for Ann’s ‘Three Month Program to Radically Shift The Way Your Body-Mind Functions’. Every single session was memorable as Ann adeptly, skillfully, and heart-fully guided me on my journey back to wholeness and health once again. Thanks to Ann, I am healthy once again.” For more information about The Evolutionary Method Mastery Program, please contact Ann Jarvis at (613) 218-6899 or go to: http://www.thenourishedsoul.ca for more info

Who would think www.wishingtreeyoga.ca that “out of control” shaking is good for us? The Kalahari bushmen of South Africa know this is so. The bushmen and women of the Kalahari (see Bradford Keeney) continue to this day a shaking healing tradition that dates back thousands of years. Qigong masters know this is so. There is a qigong practice called “shaking the tree” that literally allows one to shake to the core (see Kim Eng - shaking practice). The Quakers and Shakers knew this is so. Quakers and Shakers, danced, quaked and shaked in ecstatic union with the Divine (see Bradford Keeney). The providers of TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) know this is so. Military personnel and others dealing with trauma are finding relief through TRE (see David Berceli). Animals, after experiencing trauma know this to be so. Prey animals, after the chase and escape will tremor (see Peter A. Levine). Personally, I have recently found relief from an essential tremor I’ve had in my hands since my early twenties. Activation of the natural tremor mechanism in the body through TRE releases tension and trauma that has been stored in the body for who knows how long. It works on fascia, from the inside out. It takes care of the body. TRE are “bottom-up” much like yoga postures that focus on the body. In any case, whether you’re shaking the night away on the dance floor, quaking and shaking to connect to Divine Presence, shaking it off naturally to release chronic tension and trauma in the body, when the ‘shaking all over” is over give yourself lots of time to experience the state of savasana in deep relaxation. Likened to “after the sound there is silence,” after the shake there is savasana. This is where the healing takes place. Om Shanti.

AWARENESS Channelled by Lisa Virtue

I

nto your heart, feel the presence of the Divine within. Know that you are one with the eternal. This comes oft times in waves, waves of peace, of balance, or of blessed joy. Feel the waves wash through you… an internal, eternal voice, speaking to you in a manner felt by your essence, by your being. Know that God communes with you daily, eternally. You are not one without such a God. For the God we speak of here is simply the Divine presence of us all, one being in divided awareness. Let your own awareness reside for a time within the peaceful still between thoughts. Recognize that while this may seem a fleeting place, it does exist. There is existence when no thoughts are present. What this peace, this stillness represents is the noncreational aspect of self, the part of self that is released to awareness. Find this place and you reach the eternity of self, of all. In the still you find release of attachment, of will, of dominance in you world. Equanimity. You find your grace. It is here where our natural self is best perceived. It is here you are no longer bound by the frenetic, chaotic, dream world in which you have found your attention most of the time. From here, expansion is possible. From here you grow. Grow in awareness of self, of creation, of what is and yet, what truly is not. Life is a mystery to many… the purpose of each soul, the striving for truth, for rightness, for balance, to become whole. Yet what if you were revealed as the creator of all? How your limited awareness stems from the desire of the Whole for diversity? For knowledge,

Wishingtree Yoga. Rupa has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom. Her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat!

understanding and collective experiencing of what is possible, what can be? Have you imagined yourself as the inventor of all things? Yet in a sense it is so. Allow your awareness now to rest on an idea, the idea of all being aware and then choosing bliss. Choosing sentience of form. Meaning the thought creations project no longer a sense of discontinuity, but an awareness of conscious, sentient, Divine intelligence. Yet more than intelligence, heart. Love. Peacefulness. What if awareness was only the mechanism by which you revealed yourself, your true nature, to you? Could you fathom the depths that this cosmic, Divine intelligence could go to show you the vastness of your own being, magnificence and pure divinity? You are nothing less than “a child of God”, for it is only a separation of focus that brings you into a sense of being different than “The One”. Trust now in the instinct, the Divine within you that leads you into your stillness, into your peace, and hold not the thought of separateness as prominent. It is not. Wholeness is what is. Allow your interludes of stillness between thoughts to anchor you in the knowing of your essence. Be at one in your stillness dear Ones. For we are all experiencing together, as one, through eternity. With all the love that exists, as part of you, delivered to you, that you many know and feel You, Consciousness.
