INTEGRITY

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC

A

t the P3 Power Passion Purpose workshop that I will be co-facilitating on 29 May at the RA Centre (see front page cover add), I will be talking about Power and how to tap into this vast, seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy that we all have. You will learn how to identify your power centers and how to access them at a conscious level. Once you learn this, you will be able to direct your power, your energy where it needs to go to accomplish anything in your life. This is life changing. One of the components of Power is this simple word called Integrity. Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral values. I have failed the integrity test at various times in my life and when I did, things generally fell apart around me. By the simple fact that I am not being honest or working from a higher moral plan, I am deceiving myself and all the people around me. When I do this, I have given away my power. Have a good, hard and honest look at your life. Do you live from a place of integrity? When you promise to do something for somebody, do you get it done? Do you try to find excuses for not doing something as simple as making your bed in the morning or taking out the garbage? You can regain your lost power by starting to live according to the principles that help define what integrity is all about. It is a simple concept but on that can help bring positive changes to your life. 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. daniel@praxiswealthinstitute.ca www.praxiswealthinstitute.ca www.yourretirementcoach.ca

How to Make Better Choices

Y

ou’ve probably heard this before: follow your passions and let your passions help you make good decisions. But what if you don’t know who you are or what your passions are? How do you get to know yourself so you can make better choices? After all, you want to be happy and know you are following your life’s purpose with the decisions you make – right? To experience peace and calmness you need to live in harmony with your true self. When you know who you are and what you want out of life, you are so much better prepared to make better choices. So, how do you get to know yourself? You can start by understanding what makes you different. Explore what your heart desires by tuning out what the rest of the world thinks you should be or do. You’re not in school, so you don’t have to act like everyone else to fit in. Your favorite school subject or color isn’t what knowing who you are is about. Knowing yourself is about understanding YOU on the deepest levels of your being. It means knowing your purpose in life, at least as close as you can get to knowing. Know that you aren’t born knowing yourself. Knowing yourself takes conscious effort with intention and purpose. If you don’t know who you are, it becomes obvious to you and others sooner or later. It’s like living a lie - a fake life. When you don’t know who you are, you don’t know what you want either. This means you can make decisions based on the wrong things and end up in places, jobs, or situations you aren’t happy with. There are several ways you can learn who you are. • Understand your own personality. Ask friends what they think your personality is. Dig into your own feelings and knowledge about your personality. Your private personality might be a bit different from your public one. Get to know what you are and who you aren’t. When faced with a situation, ask yourself why you did something a certain way. • Dig into your core values. These are the moral codes and the principles you live by. List out your top 7 to 10 core values. These are the ones that will play the biggest roles in making decisions, how you communicate and your day-to-day activities. Which values will you never compromise on? Is it honesty, integrity, or security? Or do you value financial comfort, wisdom, responsibility or loyalty? • Explore your dreams and aspirations for your future. Knowing your dreams helps you make the right choices for the type of life you want to live. For example if you want to become a writer, ask yourself what type of writing you want to do. How proficient are you at writing and can you improve? Are you willing to make it a huge part of your life? Your dreams should be a part of every decision you make, especially big decisions.

Get to know yourself. Knowing who you are and what you want to do with your life helps you make better choices in the end.

Open Your Spiritual Channels: The Voice Of The Soul by Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha

Y

our soul is the essence of who you are. Your soul can heal your mind and body. Every organ, every system, every cell in your body has its unique essence. You have the power to send a new message to your mind and body to activate healing. Your Soul Has Incomprehensible Potential Power Your soul has great wisdom, knowledge, and experience from hundreds or thousands of lifetimes, and from your spiritual mothers and fathers in Heaven. Soul intelligence is much more profound than mind intelligence. Your soul has great love and care for you because your physical journey deeply affects your soul’s journey. Your soul is truly your best friend and one of your best guides. How can you unleash the potential abilities and power of your soul? First, hear its voice and understand its language: Soul Language. The Soul World is vast. The Divine, Tao, saints, buddhas, ascended masters, angels, your beloved ancestors, and countless souls inhabit it. Your own soul resides inside your body, but it also lives in the Soul World at the same time.

Why Open Your Spiritual Channels? Open your spiritual channels to open your connection to the Soul World. Open your connection to your own beloved soul, which is your essence, your true leader and boss. Open your spiritual channels to receive guidance from your own soul—to help you be a better parent, spouse, partner, friend, teacher, or healer. When you open your spiritual channels, you access wisdom and guidance to become your best self. Open your spiritual channels to receive guidance and wisdom from your spiritual fathers and mothers in Heaven and from the Divine. Soul Language is the universal language. Every soul can communicate with any other soul through Soul Language. When you learn how to translate Soul Language, you build a foundation for all other soul communication channels, including the Third Eye. Your Soul Language carries your soul’s frequency, vibration, and power. The Message Center (heart chakra) is the key. When you open your Message Center, you open the gate to the Soul World. One of my top Worldwide Representatives and Divine Channels, Master Allan Chuck, offers powerful workshops, personal consultations, and healing sessions to awaken, heal, and transform your soul, heart, mind, body, relationships, finances, and more.

WARRIOR POSES (Vīrabhadrāsanas) Story

By Rupa arrior poses are being practiced a lot in Yoga classes. So, what is the essence of these Warrior postures? We can understand these āsanas from a Mahābhārata story: A group of warriors are studying under their mentor Droṇa. One day, Droṇa wants to know if they grasp the art of concentration. Droṇa sets up a small wooden bird in a distant tree and asks his students to strike the eye of the wooden bird with their arrow. Before the warriors take action, Droṇa asks his students what they see. “I see the wooden bird, the leaves beside the bird, the branch the bird is sitting on, the tree and some other birds on the same tree. I can see grass under the tree, other trees around, the sky, the clouds…” One by one, students give a similar answer. They name off everything. And Droṇa asks them to put down their bows, not even allowing them to try their aim as he knows that they won’t hit the eye of the bird. At last Droṇa reaches Arjuna. “What do you see?” “The eye of the wooden bird” Arjuna answers clearly. “Is this the only thing you can see? Are you sure? There are lots of things around. Your eyesight must have some problems.” Droṇa is testing Arjuna. “The eye of the wooden bird, this is the only thing I see.” Arjuna answers firmly. Droṇa is pleased with this response and orders Arjuna to shoot. Arjuna holds his bow steady, gazing at the target and shoots the arrow which goes straight forward and hits the wooden bird’s eye. Self inquiry from the story: The ability to see can be an obstacle on fulfilling a task. The ability to perform a difficult pose can lead us in the wrong direction of Yoga practice. Is our Yoga practice a dancing, gymnastic performance or a Self-realization practice?

W

Yoga is a spiritual practice and a science of Self-realization. Spiritual practice is to awaken consciousness, emerge from the repetitions of death and birth, and understand the goal of life as to attain eternal peace and bliss. Don’t waste time for physical benefit alone, which we can get from any form of physical exercise. Get the full benefits of Yoga. Have a happy, wholesome and holistic life. Welcome to Rupa’s Yoga and Meditation classes at Wishingtree Yoga. Rupa Manjari Devi Das (Ivy) has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom; her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat! Welcome to join Rupa’s meditation class with work exchange. For more information, please visit www.wishingtreeyoga.ca

Archontic Deception Strategies

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. he inhumanity on Earth is a stark contrast to the love that we all inherently know. Each time we step out into the world we can find ourselves engaging with a myriad of deceptions, crazy-making complexities, manipulations and money schemes, and we can feel the drain of those lower frequencies! It is no wonder that straddling daily life with higher consciousness is a challenge and that we can feel unsafe or want to pull back. For Starseeds and Indigos some healthy retreating is necessary to be able to hold a higher frequency when our purpose is to do just that; we can be in this world but not of it. In the same way that we can spot a lie, we can support the Earth’s change in consciousness by recognizing the false programs that hold this particular reality in place with the intention of occupying, consuming, confusing and thwarting the evolutionary brilliance of a Divine human. This is not so that we can feel discouraged by the games being played, but so that we can see past the deception to what is really going on, and choose not to participate with them. The over-arching anti-human, anti-life agenda by the negative service-to-self alien forces is to gradually take over Earth’s resources and human resources and create a reality they can control with minimal impact on their own off-planet resources. Through several main calculated strategies they enforce the collective pain that we feel: • stealing physical and energetic resources through war, debt enslavement, abuse, mind control • victim-victimizer addiction patterns • sexual abuse and misery programs • child abuse and child sacrifice • misogyny • invasion through genetic modification, abductions, artificial timelines, soul occupancy

The difference between Directed Retreats and Preached Retreats By Richard Kelly, OMI

A

directed retreat is best made in an environment of profound silence so as to assist a person on retreat find a deep quiet within self. The use of Sacred Scripture is usually the basis for one’s prayer. A person on retreat meets daily with a Spiritual Director with whom one shares one’s prayer experiences, and with whom one decides the actual prayer time. One could be invited to pray on the Scriptures up to five hours a day. The Spiritual Director helps one to reflect on the prayer experiences so as to discern how the Spirit of God is active and present not only in prayer but also in the person’s life. Sharing prayer and prayer experiences with a Spiritual Director facilitates one’s journey along the path that God is making known to the person on retreat. Prayer venues could be any place in nature, in a chapel or quiet space in a retreat house such as at Galilee Centre or in one’s room. Retreat Prayer heighten one’s consciousness that God is present everywhere, in everyone and in all of creation. A directed retreat is normally seven or eight days but the length of time is determined by the person who engages in the retreat: 7-day - $625 Aug 3 (5pm) – Aug 10 (1pm); 5 or 2 days at lower rates available. A preached retreat is experienced in silence with conference talks, prayer and reflection time interspersed with sharing sessions and one-on-one with the Spiritual Director upon request. Galilee Centre in Arnprior, Ontario is next to an old growth forest overlooking the Ottawa River, surrounded by tall pines, oaks and other deciduous trees with 35 acres of natural property. The retreat and renewal centre is a spiritual oasis away from stress. Below are two opportunities coming up for preached retreats!

3 Easy Steps Towards Nursing Stress By Dr Luke Howard Clinical Hypnotist

A

re you pressed for time in your nursing profession? Are you always on the go? Do you ever feel stressed out? Are you stressed out during the day in your nursing career? You know what I mean. You get up in the morning and have to rush out of the door to get to your nursing job. At your job, you have 100 things coming at you and a list of tasks to get done for the day. You rush home, you take care of the "stuff" at home, and do it again the next day. So how do you deal with the stress in your nursing profession? More and more nurses and nursing students are dealing with stress at some point of the day. More and more health issues are arising because of stress. How can you kill the root of stress to live a better and healthier career and life? Here are 3 easy steps to manage stress through your nursing day right now: 1. Plan your day. Write down the tasks that you need to do for the day. Use a day planner or a palm pilot. There are many types of day planners. Choose the

one that works for you and your needs. This will help you see what really is important to get done. And what is not important in your day. This can help reduce the stress in your day by half. 2. Schedule time for yourself. Every week take time for you. Whether it is a whole day or a few hours take the time for you. Watch a movie, take a walk, get your nails done or go get a massage. Do whatever you like to do to relax.Therefore it will help you focus and get more done. You will also gain more energy. 3. If you have too much to get done. Delegate tasks out to someone else. It is okay to get help. Ask for help from friends,family, or co-workers. Or hire someone to take some of the workload off of you. When you do everything, stress takes over. Your life will start to collapse. These actions are a start to take a handle on stress. Pick two easy steps and start utilizing it. It is time to get back a better career and life.

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

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

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

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

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


The Power of Words

by Mariette Thomas n my coaching practice, I pay close attention to words people use when they speak. Words and the meaning we give them can keep us prisoner or free us. Let me explain with one of my experiences. I had a powerful dream which I tried to understand it’s spiritual meaning. In this dream, appeared a beautiful Goddess with six silver and gold coloured wings and I remember traveling to different worlds with her. This dream and many others left me very thirsty to be with this beautiful Being. I understood in time that I had met an aspect of me that of my divine self. On my quest to find out how to become or merge with my higher self, I spoke to many people who were quick to tell me to surrender to it. Every time I heard that word, I felt more and more resistance in my body. It conjured in me having to give up or let go of something, being taken over, losing control or letting go of control. Surrendering was a difficult endeavor and the last resort as I saw it. I reached a point of real suffering, a profound desire to experience the freedom my higher self-offered. I did not really know how to surrender even if I really wanted to. Having had glimpses of my “becoming”, I wanted to embody my higher self and there was a part of me that was strongly resisting. One day while in meditation, I asked for help. On the white screen of my mind, emerged the word “allow”. Spirit planted the TING.COM 613-266-8063 seed “to allow” which over time has created an opening, shops February Exhibition at Green Door and a blossoming b 4/13 6:008:00 of some sort, a real shift in me. I did not have to surrender, I only

I

needed to allow. I only needed to allow my higher self to merge with my consciousness. It was like a revelation, a surge of Light creating a breakthrough in my impasse. There is nothing wrong with the word surrendering, or the spiritual concept of surrendering however the emotional charge and meaning I gave it, kept me stuck, and something I did not want or may not be able to attain. It was a word that at the time of my spiritual

gridlock, was not serving me. Once I became aware of this I was able to choose the word “allow” which gave me the breakthrough I needed and was energetically more fitting. Do you feel like you are at a stalemate in some areas of your life? Do you have words in your vocabulary that are loaded with beliefs that are keeping you stuck, and simply by becoming aware of them, you can choose different ones? Words are energy, and as we evolve, it is important to revisit the way we speak because our words could be keeping us from progressing to our next level of consciousness. Each level of growth calls for different ways of seeing, speaking and doing. Mariette Thomas is an Integral Master Coach, Certified Enneagram teacher and Minister in training with OSPC.

Therapeutic Fertility Treatment with Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac

F

or centuries, acupuncture combined with herbal and traditional medicine has been employment in many cases of infertility. When used alongside western fertility therapies, acupuncture has also been discovered to increase the rate of conception by 26 per cent. The therapy can treat a number of infertility causes such as repeated pregnancy losses and spasmed tubes. Also, fertility experts have discovered that acupuncture can treat thyroid complications that result into infertility plus other unknown causes of infertility. The primary way through which acupuncture increases fertility is through creating proper hormonal balance and stress reduction. The most common cause of infertility in women is a type of ovulation disorder where a mature egg is prevented from being released from the ovary. This is usually brought about by hormonal imbalance. For instance, the fetus will not attach itself on the uterus if progesterone level is insufficient. High prolactin levels can as well prevent ovulation. Acupuncture can work by arousing specific vital energy points in the body and thus regulating emotional, spiritual, physical and mental balance. This creates a hormonal balance throughout the body. Stress on the other hand is the major fertility factor in both men and women. Stressed individuals have

the hormone cortizol secreted in their brain. The hormone tampers with the neuro-chemical balance of the brain and hence alters hormone levels. In the end, the pituitary balance, which is a key factor in the reproductive cycle, is disrupted. Due to the fragile balance between the pituitary, hypothalamus and the reproductive glands, stress can bar a woman from ovulating. It can bring about spasms in the uterus and the fallopian tube thus interfering with the movement as well as the implantation of the fertilized egg. Even in men, stress can easily cause impotence and tamper with motility as well as sperm count. Acupuncture boosts the production of beta endorphins (feel-good hormones) which improve the levels of both the luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormones. The two hormones are very essential in fertility as they counter the actions of cortizol and stress.

How Do We Heal Our Families?

M

odern culture seems to be against supporting healthy families. Statistics show a steady slip of the middle class into desperate financial straits. Looking around, too many people are struggling with physical, mental and emotional conditions resulting from the imbalances of our increasingly toxic and over-legislated world; conditions that could be easily treatable if we lived in a balanced society. Often these troubles are hidden. “How are you?� “I’m fine.� Families struggle in isolated desperation with kids at risk, addictions, poverty, family break-up, violence, abuse and illness. Food banks and shelters are overloaded. Crisis workers are often exhausted and numb. The whole system seems out of control and depressing from the point of view of those who do not have the resources to get help.

Pathwork: Can you really create the life you want?

By Jean Millar o you wonder, when you hear about books such as The Secret that describe how to get exactly what you want in your life, whether that is really possible? Or maybe it seems that other people can manifest what they want in their lives, but it doesn’t work for you? The Pathwork teachings explain that we are always creating the events and circumstances of our lives, either directly or indirectly. The thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that reside in the unconscious are especially influential precisely because they are not easily available to our discerning mind. Since these are often the fears and negativity that we suppress and don’t allow ourselves to feel, we can end up manifesting unwanted events and circumstances without realizing why they are happening. Pathwork Lecture 194: Meditation and Its Laws and Various Approaches, provides a very detailed and specific methodology for creating our lives positively. This is a written mediation with specific steps provided. We start with knowing that we have this ability to create and that we have a divine consciousness to support and guide us. An essential part of the process is allowing into awareness the various misconceptions, fears and guilts that block us from stepping fully into what we want in our lives. In one part of the method, we enter an inner dialogue between the various levels of our consciousness (the inner voices), to uncover and realign the suppressed wrong ideas that are blocking the way to our best living.

As in any creative act, there is an active and a receptive component to this meditation method. In the active part, ideas are conceived and steps taken to implement them. And then we need the receptive component where space is made for intuition and wise inner guidance. Use is made of the power of setting an intention, aligning with spiritual principles, and precisely visualizing the state we are moving towards. The final step is to wait in faith, remaining open to the guidance that will continue to come. At any point in the process, we can meditate to clear what is blocking us. We can meditate for clarity and guidance about any issue or longing or problem in our lives. We can even meditate for help to meditate.

Spring Detox for Skin

A

detox can be as involved as a dietary fast or as simple as a facial steam. Facial steams are wonderful for deep cleaning pores and even clearing congested lungs. They also bring moisture to the skin and stimulates the blood flow due to the heat. Facial steams can also be personalized to a specific skin type. To create a steam treatment, add boiling water (approx 2 litres) to a plastic or glass bowl. Using spring or distilled water is preferable to tap water, which contains chlorine and other chemicals which you do not want on your skin. Add the herbal/essential oil blend (suggestions below) to the water and create a tent with a large towel so trap the steam. Keep your face about a foot away from the water and relax during the five to ten minutes of the treatment. People with thread veins should be careful with steaming, as should those with any skin issue that could be worsened with this treatment.Oily skin types would benefit from sage, rosemary, peppermint, lemongrass, lavender and yarrow. Essential oils like cypress, patchouli, carrot seed, may chang and oils distilled form the

herbs described above would also be useful in a steam. Dry skin herbs would include lavender, chamomile (unless there is a ragweed sensitivity), violet, calendula and rose. The essential oils of these plants would also be useful, as well as palmarosa, frankincense, carrot seed and geranium (to name but a few). Normal and combinations skin types can steam with lavender, rose, peppermint, clary sage or chamomile. You could also include geranium, palmarosa, lavender or lemon. This list is by no means inclusive: just a few to get you started. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg where natural ingredients are concerned. But it is a good place to start, and you may have many of the ingredients in your kitchen cupboard already! ©2016 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St in Centretown.

As has been said many a time “hindsight is twenty-twenty”. One of my life’s obstacles has been a lack of clarity. It is something I have struggled with and longed for. I think I may have discovered a beautiful way of attaining a clearer vision. Of course I have been reading many books that guide me further along my journey, but to actually experience something for myself is my best teacher. When I am about to be subjected to a situation that I think will be uncomfortable my anxiety level starts to spike. This tends to block out all of my sense of reasoning as I have allowed my mind to be taken over with a thousand worse case scenarios. This only adds to the feeling of stress. Now, when this type of situation happens, I try to catch myself before my mind has gone completely crazy, taken over with a myriad of debilitating thoughts. I loudly (inside to myself) demand my mind to BE STILL and then I surrender and let it go to the Universe. In this instant I receive the amazing gift of Clarity. An idea or a vision is revealed that will lead and guide me gently through many situations. I am so grateful to have found a method that works for me. It is how I allow the Universe (God/Divine Love) to create the perfect scenario that is beneficial, even healing to everyone involved. The Universe continually gifts us with options through visions. We just have to still our minds enough to let Clarity (clear vision) flow in. I hope my experience will bless you with a little clarity the next time you find yourself about to succumb to the insane thoughts that accompany stress and anxiety.

Laura’s Numerology News For May 2016 How to calculate your personal monthly number for May

5. Do you have an opportunity to move into a short term job, or contract? There is a good indication that it will be temporary, so do not lose your heart to it. There should be a great learning opportunity so suck up the knowledge. 6. All of your energy should be used on chores or domestic obligations. Spend your hard earned cash on the kids, house items or renovations, only. This is a “we” month and not a “me” month so others could be extra demanding.

Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth and then add the number 5 to this number. You always add double digits together in numerology to reduce to a single number.  (Example - birthday of Jan. 5) Jan. (1 month) 5 (day) added together = 6 then add this month’s number which is 5.  Then add 6+5=11. Add 1+1 and you get 2.  You would read point number 2 if this was your birthday. If you still have trouble, email me at   Lbaird@istar.ca  1. Get ready! You have been asking for changes, right? Well, this entire year will be filled with many unexpected ones, so get ready. The month of May is very important. If you are in a rut, take the reins and get out, now. 2. Try to Zen out and remain calm this month as worry and anxiety is normal for you in May. All of your relationships are in your face and you your nerves will be very close to the surface of your skin. 3. Tell everyone in your world to take a hike, and try to spend as much time as possible on #1…. YOU. You need to analyze how the events of the last 2-3 years, have changed your life, and how you have grown. Healing is needed. 4. You are in an important month that demands discipline and fortitude. You must focus on decision making, career advancements, and practical matters. Travel for work or family duty only. Changes are coming in June, so get ready.

7. Your emotions will be oozing out all over the place, so travel with lots of tissue. Use this month to focus on the most important person in your life. That would be YOU, or course. 8. A new confidence will take the place of the powerlessness that you have felt during the resent past. Force yourself to be more assertive at work, and ask for what you want and need, now. No sitting on the fence, please. 9. You will have a certain glow about you, this month. Don’t get excited, it’s only sweat. It is time to get rid of everything that is cluttering your path. Get ready for a shift that will start in June. Think garage sale on all levels. Purge, purge. LAURA YOUNG IS AN INTUITIVE NUMEROLOGIST/ LIFE COACH. FULL SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE INPERSON TO CLIENTS IN OTTAWA, ONT. CANADA. PHONE, FACETIME AND SKYPE SESSIONS ARE CONDUCTED WORLDWIDE.

The ZEN Course and the Collective Reset

Interview with Suzanne Powell by Monica Muraira on Radio CHIN (Spain). Monica Muraira: This June, you will be in Ottawa to give a Zen Course. When we think ‘Zen’, immediately we think of Zen Buddhism, but as I understood from your books, Zen, according to Suzanne Powell, has nothing to do with any doctrine. What is Zen for you? Suzanne Powell: For me, Zen means being aware. Being conscious of the way you live, of what you eat, of how you speak, being aware of how you behave; being conscious of your thoughts, of your emotions, possibly 24 hours a day. Being aware of the signs telling you how you interact in your life, with Life. Zen means being conscious that you are the co-creator of everything that manifests in front of you. M.M.: What can we learn at the Zen Course? S.P.: At the Zen Course I give a very simple and practical theory, as well as precise tools to use for our everyday life that, after each day of the course, everyone can realize. Each day of the Zen course we activate an inner, innate capacity which does not require any particular doctrinal knowledge; it has nothing to do with social, economic or educational background. Nothing is required, just the will and desire to learn. The first level takes up three days, with two hours each day; the last day we stay longer to answer all the questions arising, and also because usually, at the end, no one wants to leave. M.M.: This is then a practice that anyone can integrate into their daily lives? S.P. : Yes. Since we are all everyday people, we usually do not go around saying “Look, I am Zen”. No. We learn to use simple tools to help us through moments of conflict, moments of difficulty, or even moments of sickness. We learn how to know the body, listen to the

body and how to heal our body through the techniques of controlling our nervous system, thus our minds, our character, our reactions, our ego. We also learn, through our Zen Touches, in case of a headache, for example, we will know which points to touch in order to stop it. M.M.: At the end of each level of the course, you do a collective reset. What is a reset? S.P. : Us humans have accumulated so much information, we have so many softwares that we forgot who we truly are. Our true self has been buried over many layers of misinformation. When I speak of a ‘mental reset’ or a ‘collective reset’ I mean that we humans need to relearn to think differently, clean our software, throw it in the recycling and start over, fresh as children. As I elaborate in “El Reset Collectivo” or even in “Dare to Be Your Master” it is a return to the origins, reconnecting yourself to your true self. During the Course we do a collective reset and also an individual reset when I enter each person’s magnetic field to seek out the root of their sickness, of their suffering, their pain, or their depression. M.M. : Who is welcome to attend your courses? S.P. : Everyone! Youth, elderly, people with big jobs, no jobs- all the many beautiful colours of humanity that look for love, health, harmony and peace in their lives.

Meditation and the Journey of Self Discovery

M

Acharya Chandranath (Chris Simmonds)

e

any of us are brought up thinking that we are primarily a physical body and that the world around us is only existing on the physical plane. We may not understand that the human being exists simultaneously on several levels with the physical body being only one. In yogic philosophy the body is considered to be the "physical sheath" or the outermost layer of multi-dimensional existence which is connected to a deeper reality. To gain knowledge and an experiential understanding of human consciousness, spirit and higher potential we need a tool. The tool for this inner journey of exploration is meditation. It is the most effective tool for exploring the higher  dimensions of our spiritual being. How does it work? By sitting in silence with oneself and allowing the mind to flow with the breath or a mantra, thoughts arise from the subconscious mind and come into conscious awareness. Just as in the process of dreaming, various impressions which were stored in subconscious come bubbling up to the surface of the mind. These may be emotions, memories or mental reactions which were previously sitting below the level of conscious awareness. Through this process of clearing the subconscious the mind becomes clearer, stronger and more balanced.

As the mind becomes more focused it settles into a more profound and widened state of awareness. A sense of calm and wellbeing develops in the regular meditator. Meditation is sometimes referred to as "intuitional practice". It is certainly possible that in this state subtle ideas, creative visions and blissful feelings arise in the mind. For many there is a feeling and experience of interconnection with nature and with others. A greater capacity for compassion for oneself and others arises naturally from this state. Deeper than the subconscious is the unconscious mind; a stratum where deeper patterns and archetypal images are held. Ideas and images flowing from this strata may inspire a person to a more subtle level of expression in their life. This expression may be artistic, it may be in the form of compassionate service and it may become a search for truth and knowledge. With regular practice the meditator's  mind flows into a deep and profound stillness; a vastness in which the ordinary, daily experience of having a separate self dissolves away. The meditator experiences being part of a larger consciousness; a mind without boundaries. In experiencing this their outlook on the world is reshaped. They realize that all existence is interconnected and that the true nature of our self is not the ego but an infinite expansive consciousness.

Let’s Talk about Grief “Without Death there would be no ButterfliesLet your Grief Transform you”

Make your piece with Grief The question is how we cannot? Accepting our emotions and not being wary of it is the first step to understanding of death. Our emotions are in a constant flow and we don’t notice them unless interrupted by extreme anger or sadness. Our emotions recede in the background until something like a death occurs – the grand interruption! In our grief, each emotion will come to visit, sometimes alone or altogether. Understandably, we may be frantic and unsure of how to cope with the intensity. GPS -Map- Plan – All you need for the Grief Journey Rather than waiting until a death occurs, wouldn’t it be better to understand what to expect? Once you understand something, the fear around it lessens. Death is no different; it’s a journey we all must take and it is in the surrendering that we can ultimately reduce the painful feelings that surround grief.

Small Practice Steps Life gives us smaller losses so we are accustomed to face the largest loss of all – death.

Would we be able to appreciate true happiness and joy, if there were no loss to grief?

Club Yoga Children’s Yoga Teacher Training “Taking Care of the Children of the New Earth”

I

t is a well known fact that yoga for children and families goes hand in hand with good health, fitness, inner harmony, groundedness and balance. It is even more important at this time of Earth changes to have a “practice” to stay balanced. The New Earth is bringing new souls with new ways of thinking, perceiving, learning and being. These children are coming in with new DNA structures that are in harmony with the Earth’s new frequency. The educational system and parents are challenged to adequately meet the needs of these children as they present differently and are extremely sensitive to their environments and stimuli and process information differently. They have sometimes been labelled as noncompliant based on their sensibility, their vital energy and the need for a stimulating environment for learning. So parents are being asked to step up to the plate with confidence, patience and receptivity. When children are labelled, the judgment of the label gets planted in their energy fields. Every child needs a space where they can relax deeply and allow their unique expression to come forward. Our yoga program trains teachers to hold a space for children that fosters compassion and acceptance and allows their uniqueness to come forward without judgement. Children who take our classes feel uplifted, happy, calm and grounded afterwards. We give them tools to manage the diverse energies they encounter in their day to day lives. I have witnessed the changes in children who are shy, hyperactive, lacking self-esteem or who have a physical or mental challenge. They become

f you believe that you as a whole, including your karma are unique. If you believe that you have the potential to heal your karma and move beyond limitation whether the limitation is conscious or unconscious, selfimposed or created through the location of your birth - Ayurvedic Astrology may very well be the perfect tool to access your potential. In short, Ayurvedic Astrology is a sister practice to yoga and is based on Vedic Astrology which has some similarities with Western Astrology and focuses on identifying your individual process or recipe to heal your karma and enhance your dharma. To put it in perspective in relation to yoga we can say that the practice of yoga is a tool to show us how to harmonize ourselves; Ayurveda is a science of self-healing for body and mind promoting longevity and vitality; and Ayurvedic Astrology provides the foundation for our deep-seated expression. Ayurvedic Astrology is a complex and in depth process capable of offering much clarity in one’s life. My focus as a practitioner is on providing individuals with valuable self-awareness knowledge but most importantly it’s about offering the tools to move in the direction of your choice. These tools vary and can include specific mantras, gemstones, essential oils, colors, working with specific days of the week, asanas, breathing techniques and herbs in accordance with your essence therefore, enhancing their ability. My Ayurvedic Astrology consultations can provide guidance with matters of the heart, direction/decisions, positively moving through transitional periods, health, stress, stamina, prosperity, forgiving, spiritual growth, confidence, work and much more. In closing, know that I don’t predict futures; I simply help you create what you want.

Rhythm of the Year with Tree Essences (a monthly series about the vibration of the month and trees) by Celine Cloutier and Daniel Tigner

Getting Along With Your Teen

Oprah to Alanis Morissette: Love is?... Alanis: Love is most felt when it is a verb and when it is an action. A lot of times people think, “Well, I’m doing this for you.” “Wait, wait,” I think. “When you are really attempting to love, you might check in with the other person – what would it feel like love for them?” Oprah: So, what advice would you give to your younger self? Alanis: It’s a sweet question. I would say, “Everything is going to be okay,” and, “You can be young. You can be a young person. You can enjoy.” HOW DO YOU GET ALONG WITH YOUR TEEN! People may ask; “How are the kids doing?” And you may reply, “Oh, well, it’s a rather interesting stage.” I have parents calling because they are lost and do not seem to be able to get along with their teen. DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR TEENS? Take a moment, go back and feel it! Get reacquainted. Remember the awkwardness, the over sensitivity, the dreams, the discouragement, the doubt, your first love and the whole range of emotions and events? How would you have liked to have been treated or spoken to? What did you find the most difficult? What had you wished? How can we gracefully live this transition together, parents and teens? For some parents, the question is how can I get through this transition? And some teens may ask themselves the same question. A few years back I asked my now, 26 years old son J., to share with me how he felt about teens and his perception of how we, parents, can assist teens, so we can all go through this stage smoothly and healthily. Now I am very grateful since J. and I went thought the teens together smoothly and joyfully. That is why I felt I could ask his advice on the subject.

Access the root of your sexual pleasure and spiritual power through Divine Tantric Touch, Meditation and Ecstatic Embodiment Sessions. I cater to individuals and couples of all ages and backgrounds. Devi Bliss, Certified Tantric Teacher thetantrictouch@gmail.com ~ www.divinetantrictouch.com His first statement was: “All teens are so different and there are no quick recipes. Even if there are obvious hormonal changes during this period, not all teens will act and react in the same manner. It is not just the specific time of change which makes it more difficult. It is about a whole package of events. So, is it really fair to speak of a Teen Crisis?” J. thinks we should also look to science for some answers, such as research on the developing teen brain, to understand better…. Just love it! By looking at the emotional states of people’s life at any stage, each situation has to be dealt individually. Each parent has a story, past experiences, vision, hope, fear etc. Our conscious memories of how our parents raised us also affect our behavior and attitude about the teen stage – and, every teen is unique and will all react individually. So, yes, there are no recipes. But, in 2003 when J. turned into a teenager, and remembering what I felt when I was in that stage, I felt strongly that the TREES could help and we needed to create a TEEN essence. J. was stepping into a large high school, and knowing that many influences would be available, I hoped for J. to tap into strong self-esteem and inner strength, so that he could ride the wave of this time of change, making intelligent choices, while enjoying himself. Why not use natural resources of trees to support this very important and meaningful stage in people’s life? And it worked!

TEEN ESSENCE This essence helps teens to stay balanced and upbeat through this roller coaster period of change. It addresses insecurities about personal appearance and how to act, feelings of inadequacy, fear of not fitting in, and uncertainties of how to respond to peer pressure. It helps teens make positive choices and find their true path or relating to the world and other people. Finally here are some additional notes from my J. that may also be of use. He added: “Remember the obvious age difference between parents and teens.” “Remember about liberty and a chance to learn by ourselves.” “Remember to really listen when your child speaks to you.” All pretty simple I say! After using the Teen essence for a while, J. graduated into the Masculine Energy Essence and is now creatively living the stage of a young man in the world as an Architect. From a proud Mom!

Allergy Symptoms are Broader Than You Might Think By Judy Spence, RN, ND(QC)

W

estern Medicine deals with traditional allergy symptoms: hayfever, asthma, skin rashes and some migraines. They mostly do not treat food allergies. The cardinal rule of allergy is avoid the allergen and you will not react. However, you can be successfully treated for many if not most allergies, including allergies to environmental pollens and chemicals, foods and hormones. In Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique(NAET), allergy is any symptom(s) that arise following exposure to a substance. These reactions must be reproducible, meaning they are not just a one off reaction. With this broadened definition, reproducible reactions run the gamut from emotions, to edema and swelling, heat or cold, sleep disorders to hyper or hypo activity, pain and inflammation states as headaches, full head, fogginess, from fatigue to hyperexcitability, from voluminous appetite to lack of desire to eat, from ear ringing to metallic taste in the mouth. The list goes on and on. The main feature, following ingestion or other exposure, you have a group of symptoms that arise, peculiar as they may seem and as unrelated as they may seem, within minutes to a full 24 hours after exposure

and this group of symptoms appears repeatedly. THAT is allergy. That is what we look for, it is what we treat and it is what is reduced or eliminated using the NAET technique. To assess your allergies and sensitivities, I use computerized BioMeridian assessment. Allergens are identified and ranked from mild to severe so that we can help you create your own individualized dietary and lifestyle plan. A treatment plan is created based on your test results. NAET is delivered through a

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How can we practice meditation when outer conditions make it so difficult?

SRI CHINMOY: When meditating, everybody has the same problems: it is too hot or too cold, or something else. Unfortunately, the world is like that. If we are inside our room meditating, it is too hot but if we are outside, the sun is too bright. Either way there is a problem. The place is not good, or the sun is bothering us, or there is too much noise. These are all in addition to the inner difficulties we have to face! But instead of thinking of the difficulties, try to think of it in another way: think of the opportunities. One approach is to think of the hurdles that we face in life and another approach is to think of the joy that we will get after crossing over the hurdles. We have to say to ourselves, “If I cross over the hurdles, which I can and I must, then I will be so happy.” This way of seeing things increases our inner and outer capacity. Sometimes the outer conditions make us feel absolutely miserable when we are trying to meditate. At that time, we can easily give up and say, “It is not my fault. It is nature’s fault.” In this way, we can justify our surrender very nicely. But the other way is to say, “If I can meditate in spite of this opposition, then I will become a better, stronger person.” Instead of surrendering to those obstacles, regard them as opportunities to make progress. Spiritual people are supposed to be warriors. When we face obstacles, we have to conquer them. This has to be our attitude all the time. Otherwise, if we surrender to circumstances, we will never be able to do anything. So if we think of the happiness we will get when we conquer the obstacles that are presently facing us and if we can bring that happiness forward, it will give us added strength. And that strength will give us the capacity to meditate more peacefully. Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

usiness pioneers have embraced philanthropy, as part of their business model, embedded within which are holistic practices. As humanity embraced self-centeredness, they slipped into the old paradigm “survival of the fittest”. Businesses relinquished ‘holistic’ practices and institutions/ systems evolved into entities that focus on their self-interests. With the advent of technology, innovative businesses have come on stream, freeing humanity from the shackles of self-serving institutions/ businesses. With the dawning of new energies on the planet, the old ways of doing things have ceased to be effective and replaced with new ‘holistic’ ways. What is ‘holistic’ business? A ‘holistic’ business is one that operates in an ethical, responsible and eco-friendly manner, fostering a balanced lifestyle and has the client’s best interest at heart. With changing times and new energies, there is a paradigm shift associated with the new norm of operation – that of “continuous change”. ‘Holistic’ is the way of the future. The ground swell of embracing holistic practices in homes and businesses, together with the desire to make ‘holistic’ mainstream, saw the birth of the Ottawa West Holistic Chamber of Commerce, one of the 65 Chapters across North America. As businesses adapt to become fully holistic, they are in transient phase, at varying degrees of holistic. True holistic approach stems from bringing the ‘mind-dominated’ and the ‘heart-centered’ approach into harmony and balance, wherein business acuity and compassion component of humanity complement each other. Holistic professionals are heart-centered, often lacking businesses acuity. Thus, seminars, such as “How to Thrive in Your Holistic Business” provides knowledge and tools, essential to further understanding of the business components such as finance, service fees, strategies, marketing – all of which have an impact on the business survival/ performance. Hence bridging the gap between professional skills and lack of business acumen, culminates in an all-round, well-grounded, sound-business approach.

Colour Light Therapy – How It Really Works © 2016 Julianne Bien

T

he International Year of Light – a UN-sponsored tag for thousands of events unfolding worldwide throughout 2015, showed off the power of light. We are finally starting to fully appreciate the power of light, globally. Its advanced uses on land, at sea, deep under ground and far out in space prove us able to tap the essence of the world around us.

language of light and its messages, which the colours through their frequencies convey: ignite, burn, sizzle, scorch, smolder or go off. (That’s the same cycle the stars in our universe undergo). I’m often asked how colour light therapy really works. It appears esoteric and mystical, bordering on magic. The best analogy I know, one we all know well, is fire. Fire is quirky. It is our species’ first tool, process and weapon. It gives off light and heat on demand, echoing our life-giving star in the sky, yet we get to wield it at will. And if you look closely, it varies in colour, depending on intensity. It’s yellow and orange at first; green flame tips and blueish bursts will tell you it’s sizzling; you’ll want it bright white, if you wish to, say, melt metal or bake clay. Still, starting and maintaining a fire is tricky at best. It’s moody. It might flare up in an instant or just smolder for hours. Sometimes a trained hand gives up in frustration, another time a fire will light itself up. Too much moisture around it and it won’t even start; too little and it burns itself out.

e

But how about the world inside us? Health-related uses of light range from diagnostics to surgery, from psychiatry to psychology, from revitalization to rejuvenation, from emotional to spiritual makeovers. We have LASER-based instruments, LED-based apparatuses, full-spectrum lights, various digital and analogue devices using light and much, much more. Where we lag behind is in understanding how exactly our bodies respond to light. This is why terms such as chromotherapy, phototherapy and light therapy in general – although ancient in origin  – very slowly progress toward full endorsement of the medical establishment. Auto-immune problems, emotional trauma, allergies, metabolic imbalances, seasonal affective disorder, jet lag, sleep and attention deficit disorders etc. – often respond better to light than to traditional interventions. And there›s good reasons for that, we just haven›t explored them enough. In the 20th century, a photo-biologist John Ott was hired to document the effects of pharmaceutical drugs on living cells, with an electronic microscope and a special camera. Ott noticed that changing the colour filters on his camera lens changed the cells’ behavior. In fact, lens colour change had a more dramatic effect on the cells than did the observed drugs. So on the “ground level”, where life in our bodies unfolds, light and colour have more say than chemical compounds which we concoct. Our cells understand the

So it is with us. We are internal combustion engines, with trillions of tiny burners. Our cells burn up oxygen and produce heat. They use the resulting light as an ultra-fast messaging system. It all works to perfection – from toes to teeth - except when it won’t. When an imbalance sets in, our internal flame in an organ dies down. Or it flares up, past all safety limits, causing redness, fever and pain. We don’t know what triggers this any more than we can pinpoint the cause of or control a wild forest fire.

May 2016


Knowing how small, how tiny our internal burners are, it’s easy to see how fine-tuned, how delicate any support we give them must also be. Most light-based treatments rely on emitting an intense light beam or outputting a wide swath of bright light, one way; interaction is not usually foreseen. In contrast, hand-held colour light illuminators work off the silent communication between the person sending faint light and the person receiving it. Instant reactions – live bio-feedback – guide the hand holding the penlight. By spontaneously adjusting the angle and the height of the light beam, we work within the aura and can affect all levels (physical, emotional and spiritual). As with lighting a fire, intuition and experience play a part. This adaptability is why lowintensity, hand-held colour light therapy tools and protocols are so effective. Colour light therapy is ancient. Thousands of yearsold records exist of diagnoses and cures based on colours. Chromotherapy is a well-traveled road to wellness we’ve all but forgotten over time. With more research and even a fraction of resources poured into developing chemical cures, we could restore much of what was known long ago about light and potentially discover more colour power than we ever imagined.

Unravelling the Top 12 Myths S H AT T E R I N G T h e T O P of the New Age Paradigm 1 2 S P I R I T UA L M Y T H S by Daniel Mauro

W

e’re living in a wonderful yet challenging age of spiritual transformation in which the consciousness of humanity is shifting by leaps and bounds. This period of transformation comes with its own set of challenges, chief among them: knowing what’s true and what’s not. On the spiritual path, it’s especially important to cultivate an internal sense of truth. A powerful truth detector of sorts. To the best of our abilities, we want to be able to discern what’s true about facts presented to us from the outer world as well as the situations and people we encounter. Most importantly, we’d like to be capable of discerning the truth about ourselves, as every choice point in life presents a variety of potential outcomes which collectively shape the course of our life. This new age of spirituality, which was birthed circa 1977 (with the notable discovery of Chiron), brought with it a host of positive healing modalities, consciousness teachings, and energy paradigms. Unfortunately, there is also a subset of New Age spirituality that has become cluttered with confusing myths, distorted ideas and false light teachings. The modern spiritual paradigm I’m referring to can be broadly characterized as embodying certain overarching qualities: superficiality, subjectivity, sensationalism, and self-absorption. Let’s call them the “4 S’s.” Beyond these

BodyTalk: What I Know, What I do not Know and how these can Both Help You!

I

am becoming more and more aware of what I know and what I do not know and how both of these benefit the healings that take place during BodyTalk sessions. I have trained my mind to see mental/emotional and physical health patterns, as well as to let go of what I think should happen following and rest with the esoteric. Without the latter, many things that happen during a BodyTalk session may be perplexing. I often sit back following a session and wonder at what just happened. BodyTalk session explained: I set the intention that various energies shift at the beginning of the session, having no idea what they will be or how exactly that will happen. At the outset of the session, the body starts to reveal patterns of ill health that are ready to unravel. I name the parts and systems that have been holding these energies and suggest more effective communication pathways between them. I watch/ sense/feel the movement of these energies and often name related emotional/mental patterns as this occurs. The suggestions for change begin to integrate as my client and I observe, and often feel, this happening. At times, gentle shaking or heat occurs in the clients’ body (or mine), we reach a still point and the integration of suggested changes is complete. Following a BodyTalk session: The client often feels more alive, energetic, calm, centered, and either immediately or within days, begins to notice physical patterns of ill health shift, e.g. lower back pain or tension headaches are relieved; immune cell function is repaired/restored; the microbiome in the gut harmonizes with the brain; the liver dumps its unnecessary toxins; sleep becomes more regular, general inflammation is reduced - the skin clears; the lungs release their restrictive tendencies and a full breath is allowed; allergy symptoms either reduce or become eliminated, stressors trigger much less stress, etc. What I do know is how to guide this process and have studied various aspects of health for many years to assist the healing to come about.

What I don’t know is how grace has its way with us; how it brings about spontaneous healing within this process and encourages health potentials to emerge and integrate on all levels. This past summer I lost my hearing in one ear and since suffered from tinnitus. After various hyperbaric medicine treatments and inner ear cortisone injections, I saw little to no change in my hearing and the ENT said that I wouldn’t hear again. Six months later and a set of hearing devices, I finally decided to try BodyTalk. After one session, I was immediately re-energized, my nervous system calmed and I noticed I was able to focus again. I have now had 5 sessions, removed my hearing devices, have regained some of my hearing, and decreased the pitch of my tinnitus. My overall energy, stress levels and perspective have been hugely and positively impacted. Bodytalk is nothing like I’ve experienced before and I would truly recommend it as a holistic, positive and effective approach to healing. - Sarah, Mother, Stittsville

veryone I know is experiencing huge changes in their lives at this time. The changes may be in emotional and mental stability, physical health, relationships, or financial/ job security. You may have one or all these things happening for you at this time of intense vibrational influx designed to take not only our planet and us, but our entire universe into a higher dimension. This has not happened in our universe for 26, 500 years. We knew we would be experiencing this when we signed up for this lifetime, but we could not have known how difficult it would be to maneuver on all levels of our existence. If you are experiencing poor sleep quality, memory loss, anxiety, depression and repeated colds and flues these are some of the more common symptoms. They are caused by the intense light beaming onto our body/ mind system causing all that is not healthy and balanced to come to our awareness so that we may bring love and healing to it. We are detoxifying on all levels at the same time. This is happening to everyone in one way or another. You cannot escape it---only do the work that

My suggestion for doing the core healing work is 1) the inner child work and 2) the quantum healing and balancing work offered by my partner, Doug Henderson and I. We have an amazing new technology that works at the quantum level bringing balance and healing to the cells and DNA. What I like about it is its ability to get to the core of the issue and bring about balance, health and well-being. I also love the inner child work as it helps us all to release the core wounding created in childhood. No matter how much our parents loved us they were incapable of unconditional love and that is what we needed to thrive as children. I have personally healed using the inner child work and lovingly teach others how to do the same. It is incredibly powerful.

That trusts wellness abounds and that goodness is available and present. Did you know that you are in charge of your flow? It is your focus, your attention, that calls forth the wonders.

Hold to your essence and you need not suffer.

Do you choose what you see in others? Do you decide that you know within them lies the same as within you – an amazing being so worthwhile? Do you recognize how they are witnessing life through the lenses that they have created from their experience? Can you see how you have created lenses of your own?
