The Deadline …

The deadline for submissions is about the middle of month prior to the next issue.


It’s spring! A time of renewal, trying new things and breaking out of our hibernation mode. This month’s issue is themed around healthy eating and herbs. Many are embracing new lifestyle choices for ethical or nutritional reasons, and these are a few examples of how we can focus on changing our lives for the better. Herbs have been around since time immemorial, and have been used in cooking, body care, medicines and spiritual work. Plant medicine has proven itself time and time again. In fact, the modern pharmacy can trace many medicines back to their roots in plant medicine. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.” Healthy eating has had many different definitions. The key is to find the one that works for you! If you are looking for a holistic nutritionist, we here at Tone want to help you find one. Take a good look through our magazine and directory. You will always find something worth while. Tone is Ottawa’s resource for holistic living. Thank you for being part of our community and supporting us!

Develop Insight with Meditation




rue insight doesn’t come from thinking or a book. Insight is founded in experience and can be accessed through practice. The most effective practice is that of meditation. Meditation results in clear awareness due to the turning away from thinking. This is an effective state for insightfulness. How to use meditation to gain insight: 1. Make the time. Meditation requires practice and regular effort. Early morning and late evening seem to work the best. But 15 minutes at lunch can work, too. 2. Find a comfortable position. Any position can work, provided you can maintain it without fidgeting. The full lotus position can be maintained for a very long period of time, but most beginners lack the flexibility to assume this position. Try various positions. Sitting up straight in a firm chair often works well. 3. Focus on your breath. Maintain a focus on your breath. Feel the air moving in and out of your body. Why is meditation so focused on the breath? Because it’s happening right now. It’s part of your experience in the present. 4. Continue to maintain focus on your breath. Invariably, your attention will wander. How long it takes to realize you’ve lost your focus will vary. With practice, it will only take a few seconds. At first, it may take several minutes! 5. Apply the same idea to your daily life. While driving, keep your mind 100% on driving. While you’re washing the dishes, do the same. When your mind wanders, bring it back to your current activity. You’ll be amazed at the peacefulness it brings to your life.


6. Understand what’s really happening. You’ve always been provided with insight, but your overactive mind, beliefs, opinions, and preconceived ideas have been getting in the way. Meditation clears away all of this noise and bias. You’re then able to experience true insight. Allow yourself the advantage of all the insight available to you. Although it’s effective, meditating can take some time to master. You might not feel that you’re gaining any benefits at first. Keep at it. You’ll be well-rewarded for your efforts.

Agua Viva

Ian Prattis hen I finished writing “Our World is Burning” and got it published in October 2017, I decided to step back and study the writing craft more deeply – particularly short stories. But first of all there was the task of clearing out my file cabinet, which was a total mess. During the demolition, I came across a yellowing folder that contained 40 years of my poetry. Much of it was garbage, but there were sufficient gems to fashion a book of poetry. That instantly became the new project. I had enough material for six distinct poetic memes that played out significant parts of my own life. This required an autobiographic introduction for each of the six sections. The collection is much like an exquisite cheese – it has to be left to mature. At least until Spring 2019!


Here is the introduction to PART ONE: AGUA VIVA. The poems in Agua Viva – Water of Life - were written over a forty year time period (1978 – 2018). They provide a text for my clumsy emergence into new understandings. I first journeyed to Mexico in March 1978 to a Dominican Monastery – Agua Viva – sixty kilometres southeast of Mexico City. With a number of friends this adventure was to experience a heightened transformation of the path of awareness few of us knew we were travelling. A return visit to the same monastery was made two years later. In 1988 the same core of friends returned to Mexico and made a destination to the Mayan civilization in the Yucatan. The Agua Viva poems were scribbled down hastily and refined with later insight. There was a return to Mexico thirty years later in November of 2017 – again to the Yucatan. In particular, the Mayan walled city of Tulum. It was located upon a shoreline cliff facing the Caribbean Sea. The ocean provided a stunning turquoise colour as the backdrop for jungle, sea and the mystique of Mayan civilization.

Previously in 1988, I had sat for hours at the top of the Tulum Castillo looking out at the Caribbean Sea. I was mesmerized by the sublime Mayan architecture and the overwhelming pulse of an angry sea crashing, swell after swell, into the cliffs it rested on. I did not write a poem at the Castillo at that time, too astonished to put pen to paper or even take a photograph. Yet the feelings of that day, thirty years ago, seared into my mind as I anticipated a meeting with a timeless collision of civilization, memory and human nature. The early poems (1978 – 1988) delivered an uncertain direction as my friends and I threw ourselves to find out what we could not fathom. Trying to identify purpose without too much success and leaning on an awkward posturing. I waited a long time to cap this early scribbling with a candid view of the Mayan city of Tulum – thirty years later. A wake up call from reality arose. The “Agua Viva” poems are dedicated to all of us who seek, strive and then occasionally relax into maturity. Ian Prattis is a Zen teacher and award winning author.

Interview with Diana Martinez Morales: PART II Psychotherapist, Constellation Facilitator B.A. in International Relations, M.A. in Humanities and Ph.D. in Philosophy and Ethics by Lynne Cardinal Diana Martinez Morales, Ph.D., is coming back to Ottawa in June for a third time. Morales is offering The Power of Transformation and Healing Through Family Constellations workshop. I used this opportunity to ask her a few questions. ...Continued from Tone’s April issue: Lynne: How do we need to prepare before the workshop? Diana: Just be aware of what comes up before coming to the workshop. Honor your feelings and trust in the process. Come relaxed, open minded, we can even say curious, as the experience is very deep. Lynne: Who should volunteer to do their constellation? Diana: Not everyone has to volunteer; by just attending we can get the insights that we need. Yet the ones who have issues and need support and wish to volunteer can do so. By choosing to attend the workshop means something in you wants to heal. Not just something related to your family, but perhaps also within your community or country. You may have challenges at work and this process could help. We could actually call it Systemic Constellations because we all belong to systems, or to a collective group, not only to our own family. Lynne: So wherever I go I deal with constellations with different people who bring their own issues. How can we deal with this? Diana: Just like you bonded within your family of origin you will bond with different people. So those will be your patterns. Revise three basic principles: 1. Belonging; 2: To Take and Give; and 3: Hierarchy. How do those principles live in you? How is your sense of belonging? Do you feel separate, shy, excluded? How is your ability to take and give? Sometimes it is easier to give than to receive and this reflects patterns that are limiting. What role do you have in your family, have you become the mother of your mother? Or her friend? Yet when our true place isn’t honored this generates issues that are problematic. So depending on how these three principles live in you they will enact themselves when you are with people. As a result, you will tend to bond according to your patterns. Lynne: You may bond more with some than with others? Diana: Yes, and this could be based on a trauma resonance, but also through your own ability to belong. You are likely to bond as you did in your family of origin. Once you recognize your patterns they can be transformed or healed.

Join us for an experiential weekend workshop on

The Power of Transformation and Healing through Family Constellations Saturday, June 2nd & Sunday June 3rd 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM at Saint Paul University 223 Main Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Family Constellations are one of the most effective and profound modalities that help us to heal emotionally, and at times physically, and enhance our relationships with ourselves, our families, friends, and the world. For more information visit: www.kaivalya.ca/en/workshops-a-talks or email: FamilyConstellationsDiana@gmail.com Tickets available at Eventbrite.ca under Family Constellations with Diana Martinez

Lynne: Isn’t it natural to want to reach a higher more fulfilling level of existence. We have an impulse to evolve, to have access to a bigger paradigm, more awareness, more love, more joy. Diana: You can expand as much as you belong and this can be based on the safety you experienced in your family of origin. Truth is, unless you work on your base, which means on your early years or on your origin, you cannot move forward. If you are trying to move forward this will be difficult if you have a shaky base. For example, if a tree doesn’t have deep strong roots it will fall. To reconcile with your past will help you move forward. Constellations help by humbling us, making us aware that

Quantum Biofeedback Sessions Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psychotherapist, Quantum Biofeedback Practitioner


few months ago I added a new quantum biofeedback software to my toolbox of restoration, balancing and rejuvenation tools. This is the Genius Insight system and so far it has proven itself to be nothing short of amazing. The basis concept behind the software is that it provides a means of assessing your vibrational frequency. This energetic assessmentis done through your voice analysis, your photo, your name and birth date. This assessed frequency is then compared to other frequencies that have been programmed into the software. The result of this comparison is a score ranging from 1-777. Certain scores indicate reactivity. These are generally the scores above 600 and below 200. Reactivity tells us there is some degree of disharmony between the person or animal being tested and the particular frequency being tested. Examples of these frequencies being tested could include vitamin C, magnesium, the immune system or the spleen meridian or thousands of other health issues. There are assessment panels for any issue you could be concerned about. A score above 600 is generally associated with inflammation and issues that may be more acute or closer to the surface and more superficial. Low scores below 200 may indicate issues that are more chronic and are associated with stagnation and depletion and tend to be long term issues. They are the areas of the most compressed energy. Quantum biofeedback finds the issue blocking energy flow, then opens the energy and re-establishes flow. An hour session can begin restoring the balance and harmony your system has lost-- whether recently or many years ago. There is nothing that cannot be improved energetically if it is in Divine Will that it should happen. From the first sessin on you will start to feel more energy flowing in your body.

our parents were also children. Maybe it’s not just about me, I may have been loved in a limited way because my parents had their own issues, which may originate from transgenerational patterns. If you have a reconciliation with your past you can start to belong. Then you heal your past, rewriting the past in a way. Lynne: Thank you Diana! I am grateful for the clarity that you bring to us and I hope that many will join us on June 2nd and 3rd at St Paul University in Ottawa.

Meditation and Action

By Ivy Xie-McIsaac The last state of meditation is Vegetative state. In this state, the Self is not coloured by the mind.

Wishingtree Yoga Ivy

Saint Germain Foundation

Hatha Yoga Yin Yoga Meditation Teacher Training

Ottawa From the Highest Octaves of Life Our Beloved Saint Germain has brought the Original Ascended Master Teachings on the “Laws of Life”, as a free gift of Love for all mankind. We welcome all interested individuals who wish to know more of this Original Ascended Master Teaching.

The Yoga Sūtra (4.34) says: “When the highest purpose of life is achieved the three basic qualities do not excite responses in the mind. That is freedom. In other words, the Perceiver is no longer coloured by the mind.” The liberation from being limited by the mind (mokṣa) is the beginning of living spiritually in the phenomenon world. How to transform the experience into reality material life is another challenge. After reaching the summit of a mountain, are we going to stay on top of the mountain or will we go back home? Orienting the Self to place and time can be difficult after liberation. Where are we living? Do we have full awareness of the world around us? How to maintain the day to day life? Only if we are able to go back home and able to perform daily duties, this is enlightenment. Most of us don’t like duties. Not many students like to study. We wish to be able to make lots of money without working hard, and when we are getting old we don’t want to face the fact that death is near.

We take supplements, drugs, and have operations to extent existence instead of learning about death. We are hoping that our only duty is to enjoy without working and forget there is no free lunch. Sooner or later we have to pay the price because of the Law of Karma. And the Law of Karma, like the Law of Gravity, works on everyone. Stay in a comfortable cage or fly in the sky, what will we choose? An eagle and a pigeon will choose differently. Do we have the ability to live freely without performing duties and accept the results of the freedom? At different stages a human being has different primary duties to perform. At the same time, the duties of a monk and a householder are not the same. We should not blindly follow others ways to perform duties. Ivy’s Chinese background and training has given her a natural understanding of ancient eastern wisdom. Living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop her practice in a modern western way. Her book A Complete Yoga Manual is a bridge between east and west, modern and ancient, theory and practice. A Complete Yoga Manual by Ivy XieMcIsaac is available at Singing Pebble Books.

Question: What do you feel are the necessary steps to save the environment or Mother Nature from further destruction? irstly, we have to respect nature. Nature is the expression of our inner life, our higher life. It is from nature that we get all good things—beauty, tranquillity, humility, simplicity, spontaneity and many other divine qualities. Nature helps us in millions of ways to become good citizens of the world. That is why we must respect and adore nature. Mother Nature is being polluted and destroyed by the unaspiring realities of life. It is very sad. Mother Nature has become so helpless, and many people who are trying to preserve nature are only talking, talking, talking! Governments also are only talking. They come forward and say, “Yes, we want to preserve the trees and fields,” but their actions produce the opposite effect. Because we human beings see enemies all around us, because we are afraid someone will come and attack us, we use all our money and energy to make ourselves powerful. To make ourselves powerful enough to fight our enemies, we cut Mother Nature into pieces and take her resources. We give importance only to scientific and chemical advancement, which does not allow Mother Nature to remain beautiful or powerful. Chemical advancement and Mother Nature’s progress cannot go together. As long as there is fear on earth, Mother Nature will never be able to fulfil her divinity. It is only when we no longer see others as enemies that we shall be able to keep Mother Nature intact. So this world of ours has two choices: one is to establish friendship, brotherhood and oneness. Another is to try to conquer or destroy others. When we adopt this latter approach, ultimately we destroy ourselves. But when we extend ourselves, when we spread our wings and claim the whole world as our own, very own, when we love Mother Nature, then the joy that we get will be everlasting and will have tremendous sweetness. We are longing for this joy, the joy of the creation

However, there is always a feeling that something profound has occurred, and as days pass, the body begins to feel better and better, although often difficult to pin point precisely what has happened. Considering what I’ve said this type of work can help with whatever conditions the body might experience. We call this an energy imbalance and it takes place on the physical, the emotional, spiritual and psychological aspect of our beings. Therefore, I don’t specialize in any specific injury or complaint, I simply work with raising the vibration of the energy field, and the body heals itself, according to its own timing. Energy work takes place in studios, often on massage tables, energy work takes place using a technique called distant healing, wherein the client is sitting in their home, and I in my home, and I hold their energy field, and use my tools of breathwork and body sweeps, connect with the field of the client and create the space for the body to heal in its own place.

I’ve recently begun training in a coaching modality, Law of Attraction Coaching, which basically works in a similar way, however, using language and intuition to encourage the client to find the solution to the issue they are dealing with. As the energy shifts within their being, as evidenced by energy in their voice, there has been a shift in their perspective, and they witness their world through a different lens, bringing amazing results very quickly and in a way that is totally satisfying. Every day I see clients overcome years of physical and emotional pain, to find a life filled with satisfaction and high energy, often with a career change and greater inspiration. When all those physical block are removed, as well as the old emotional messages, and feelings of being less than, each client can aspire to bigger and greater results in their lives, without more work, without more training, just by holding the high belief that they can do it… And they can.

Three Masters - One Message “Toward the One, the perfection of love, harmony and beauty, the Only being…..” Hazarat Inyat Khan Beauty is truly “food” for the soul: essential for individuals and civilizations. We experience beauty as expressed in the grandeur of sunsets, waterfalls, moonlit rivers, old growth forests, and cultivated gardens; beauty as revealed in great literature, paintings, sculpture and architecture; beauty as heard in the symphonies of the great composers, and beauty of thought in philosophy, mathematics, astronomy and pure science. The appreciation of beauty uplifts and inspires us to express our most elevated Self. The lives of three spiritual giants of the last century exemplify this truth. Excellence of artistic expression, magnificence of nature, and unifying truths of all religions –these are cherished values of three masters, whose lives overlapped in disparate parts of the world. Their teachings offer comfort and encouragement in these challenging times on our beleaguered planet.

Hazarat Inyat Khan, 1882 – 1927, was born in India, a brilliant musician, inspiring orator, spiritual teacher of great radiance, who brought Sufism to the west in 1910. Nicolas Roerich, 1874 – 1947, was born in Russia, visionary artist, archeologist, explorer, spiritual pioneer created the Peace Pact; Edmund Bordeaux Szekely, an Hungarian born in Transylvania, 1905 -1978, was a multi-linguist, archeologist, explorer of ancient cultures, the revivalist of the Esssene teachings (living by the laws of nature) and wrote voluminously. All three masters recognized the importance of beauty - creating it, appreciating it, immersing oneself in it. They knew that beauty is an essential ingredient for personal and societal evolution. I find myself wondering if as “citizens of the world” their paths crossed during their many travels. At various times all three had been in the United States, where their influence began to take root. If they had, I imagine the exquisite joy they would have felt in each other’s presence. Rather than debate the esthetics of beauty, I shall quote from the English poet Keats, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Beauty is truth and truth beauty”. Albert Einstein’s son was quoted on a recent CBC broadcast saying, “ My father was concerned that his theories were correct, yes, but even more concerned that they were beautiful”. The Native American song, “I walk in Beauty” links with many other traditions that elevate beauty to a position of honour. Many of us experience viscerally the difference between good and great art. Good art entertains; but great art transforms - it moves us deeply. Michaelangelo, Mozart, and Rumi , for example speak to our essence. In a time of societal decline, the message and creations of the masters, bring inspiration, hope and inner peace. Appreciating beauty -in nature, the arts, and pure abstract thought is powerful “medicine”. Indeed, beauty is transformative. It can literally uplifts one’s soul , while simultaneously, contribute to the healing of the Earth.

Self Worth Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol


here are many things that lead us to understanding and that contribute to the value we put on our own self worth. Take, for instance we know or are a person that is jealous or envious of others. We don’t really want what they have, yes, on the outside it may seem that way but, deep down, if we ask ourselves this question it usually boils down to a feeling of lack. If we then take that feeling and break it down even further by asking ourselves what is it that we are really lacking, we may be surprised. Could it be that we are trying to fill a void and could that void be that we don’t feel loved? We/ they are looking for comfort and love from “things” that will only temporarily satiate this obstinate need. This isn’t all that terrible a discovery, it is actually good news. It is a key step - a realization, and we can choose to rectify it. We can fill this void with something much greater than possessions, something that is always, infinitely and abundantly available to us. Can you guess what I’m going to say it is? I’m sure you can – I say it all the time - It’s the Love that rests patiently within us. This/Our Love has been concealed too long with “stuff” that isn’t of any lasting value.

Over time we began to accept the idea that we weren’t worthy or deserving of Love which is mainly based on the perception we created of the world around and outside of ourselves. It is time to return to a simpler truth that we are deserving of and worthy of Love. Love is who we truly are; it is the foundation of our being. It is our Energy and our Power to shine and spread throughout humanity via the vessels we are. Self worth brings a gift greater than any “thing”. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. www.firstlighthealing.com 613-263-7925

You know the call?


ine came in the early hours of last October morning. I can still hear my brother on the other end of the phone explain, “Mom has taken a turn for the worse, we are all here, and I encourage you to come now.” My mother had fallen at her home, getting stitches on her big toe, an infection set in and that is when it all progressed for her to stay in hospital. Now, mom was on her death bed. I was in a grey fog of grief as I travelled with my husband on a lonely stretch of highway from Ottawa to my hometown; a driving distance of six hours. Through a series of unbelievable miracles my mom made it through that night. Everyone, including doctors, were dumbfounded as she made it through that week. Before my eyes, I witnessed a miracle. She began her long road toward a slow tedious recovery. Things have turned around for my mom. Her health improves, yet her longer term prognosis isn’t great. She will never again be well enough to live on her own. It’s challenging for me without daily contact with my mother, not to forget the exasperation rightfully coming from the different opinions of eight brothers and three sisters in a family of Irish & Scottish heritage! Yet, we do agree on one very important thing; we love our mom dearly. We all want her to receive the best possible care. The long awaited break-through arrived a week ago. Mom will be able to move into a long-term care facility. Finally! I can now let my own breath out….as I sigh. After much difficulty struggling many months over how best to provide support for my mother and siblings, I recognized a feeling of calm. I don’t remember the exact moment it happened; a feeling of peace simply descended over me. With so much beyond my ability to control, I realize now there wasn’t much choice for me YET to let go. I’m getting better with that part. I have been on a healing journey now for quite

In Search of Happiness By Louise Lalande, coCreations


hat makes your heart sing? What brings a big fat smile to your face? Remember the last time you noticed being happy? Are you happy? What is being happy? Is it related to euphoria, ecstasy, contentment, calm, peace, light-heartedness? Recently pondering these questions with a friend, it reminded me how complicated being happy can be, even in a world where most of us have more than enough to be happy about. 18 was the age I started a quest to understand happiness, and, yes, I can tell you with great assurance that searching for happiness did get me in some trouble! No doubt, you can relate to chasing happiness in obvious places like the next holiday, the next paycheck, the next job, the next shopping expedition, the next adventure, or the next competition, a physical activity, a board game, or a head game … or relationships (definitely a favourite of mine for years), or perhaps the next perceived body enhancement. How often do we look outward for enjoyment, fulfillment or satisfaction? Don’t get me wrong; things, people and places certainly bring us happiness. Yet, we humans are very sneaky and resourceful when it comes to playing hide and seek with happiness. What I can say for sure, is that as the years passed by I saw through the illusions and started looking in a more obscure place: within. And what a journey that’s been!! Observing my thoughts was quite scary in the beginning. I often heard things I would never dare say to anyone else. How insanely critical we can be; where does that stuff come from? Well, never mind where, it’s just enough to notice it because that’s the starting point for change. Of course, sometimes we want to stay miserable; it has an upside too. Aside from our thoughts, emotions are also great clues. In fact, our bodies and minds are what we need to feel happiness. And as it happens, we all have one! Imagine being a spirit, say … an angel, with cool benefits and in all likelihood a lot less suffering, if at all, but wait. Wayyyy-ta minute. We wouldn’t have a body! No more chocolate soufflés, no more crème brulés, no more fudge (yes, I have a sweet tooth), no more lounging at the side of the lake, or taking naps in a the hammock, or smelling


the first spring flowers. Our body is incredible! Yet, we carry ourselves around mostly unaware of our body. God only knows I used mine mainly to carry my precious thinking, creative, problem solving head for years! At Body & Brain Healing, where Korean-style yoga and Tai Chi is offered, we practise a variety of exercises that stretch your physical, energetic and spiritual bodies. The first principle we learn is that where the mind goes, energy follows and ultimately leads to the creation of your physical reality. This reminds us to pay attention to what we are thinking as a direct influencer of our lives as well the lives of others. Harnessing this energy accelerates manifestation of the life we envision for ourselves. Is our brain in a state of guilt, avoidance, selfaccusation, and desiring control? Or is it filled caring concern, love, dreams, humour and gratitude? As obvious as it is to see that one leads to harmonious living and the other to destruction, attention, patience and persistence are an ongoing pursuit. Thankfully, a day comes when you notice your reactions are based less on fear and more on loving kindness. Gratitude: The Short Film by Louie Schwartzberg (6:22 min. on YouTube) film always uplifts my spirit. Let its beautiful imagery and thoughts imbue your mind and charge your day. As social animals, close relationships and community are certainly key to our happiness, but ultimately, we are the only one who controls what we say to ourselves, how we treat ourselves. Making friends with ourselves is no picnic yet, considering it is the one constant we can absolutely count on, it’s well worth the exploration. Louise offers artPlay and SpiritArt workshops. She is the sole accredited Artist’s Way facilitator practicing in Canada, an artist, coach, facilitator and reiki master.

Discerning Fear vs. Truth by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR)


iscerning truth from fear programs is critical now, though not always easy. On Earth, fear is pushed as truth, and truth is feared. Fear has been wound tightly into our brains, cellular memory and energy fields. The instinctual and limbic brains naturally serve to register fear, but their capacities have been rendered less discriminating by being pummeled with deceptive games, anti-life agendas, holographic mind control, transhumanism, splitting of masculine and feminine energies, victimization addiction patterns, traumas in our human history, and disinformation, to name a few. Fear-mongering has become normalized, justifying the increasing abuse of power, and deepening humanity’s anxieties and overreactions. It all creates contraction of the body. Fear drives enslavement, insecurity, conformity, apathy and confusion! In fear, our perception is skewed and narrow, and we can latch onto one possibility in the future, the mind tricking us into believing it’s predictable and definitive. We are then vulnerable to whatever manipulations are intentionally put before us by the controllers, both personally and collectively, to try to interfere our accelerating shifts in consciousness. So our fear has become a poor mechanism for perceiving what’s true, and yet we can have a tendency to use our fear to decide what we will and won’t allow or accept: if we feel fear, we may close our mind and automatically pull away from further exploration, push away options, or attach to our beliefs. We then limit our capacity to see truth. The time has come to reclaim our multi-dimensional awareness and normalize this as a way of being in

Ask the Reiki Doctor Germaine De Peralta

What is the difference between Usui Holy Fire 2 Reiki and Usui-Tibetan Reiki? Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. In order to differentiate between the two variations of Usui Reiki, it is important to understand that Reiki was meant to develop over time. Usui Holy Fire 2 Reiki is an EVOLUTION of the classic Usui-Tibetan Reiki. Reiki founder, Mikao Usui (1865-1926), alluded that Reiki was meant to evolve when he said there were six levels of Reiki that one could be attuned in. Number one was the beginning, and he placed himself at number five, or “one step below” the top of the Reiki healing system. His point was: There will always be higher levels to attain. Since we think of Source/God as infinite, we know there will always be higher levels of enlightenment. Here’s a brief illustration of Usui Reiki’s evolution through history. Research has shown that Usui Sensei received the Reiki energy on Mount Kurama in 1922 through fasting. He didn’t have the Reiki symbols at first, but a year later, he incorporated the three symbols now taught in Reiki Level 2, to make it easier for students to learn and practice Reiki. As a result, Usui attuned close to 2,000 students before his death in 1926. His successor, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, developed the Reiki hand placement system most Reiki practitioners use. In 1938, Japanese-American, Hawayo Takata, introduced

Reiki to North America as an energy healing modality. She simplified the traditional Japanese hand positions to adapt to the Western mind and she also incorporated the Usui Master symbol to the system. From all this we can see that Reiki was meant to develop over time. Around 1989, William Lee Rand, President of the International Center for Reiki Training (www.reiki.org) added Tibetan symbols to Usui Reiki to facilitate Reiki attunements. Attunements enable students to channel Reiki energy for healing. But let’s keep in mind that we are meant to access stronger and more powerful Reiki healing energies to answer the needs of the world. By 2014, after 25 years of Usui-Tibetan Reiki, Mr. Rand received an intense spiritual experience, where he was guided to usher in the the Holy Fire energy to empower the traditional Usui and Karuna symbols. Under the Holy Fire system of Reiki, students connect to the Holy Fire energy through the Holy Fire Master symbol and a series of meditation-like Experiences, Placements and Ignitions. In Usui Holy Fire Reiki and Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki, the Tibetan symbols, the Violet breath and contracting the Hui Yin are no longer required (much to many people’s relief). These changes were necessary to hold the much bigger and powerful energy of the Holy Fire. Stay tuned for upcoming topics or write me if you have any questions. I teach Usui Holy Fire 2 ART/Master/Teacher classes and Holy Fire 2 Karuna Master/Teacher classes every month at Reiki Wanderlust.

What is Homeopathy?


omeopathy is the fastest growing and second most used healing system in the world, however is probably the least understood and most controversial healing modality. Homeopathy is about 250 years old and originated in Germany, discovered by Dr Samuel Hahnemann who was a MD and Biochemist. Homeopathy has developed into what it is today by thousands of MDs and non MDs across the globe. Homeopathy is based on sound, scientific and logical principles and laws. A homeopaths main objective is to produce a rapid, yet gentle and permanent cure, while simultaneously ensuring no harm. Rather than adopting a reductionist view that humans are made of different parts, the homeopath knows that the wholeness of a human started from ONE original cell, which evolved into highly communicative and interconnected organs. Parts of a machine are built in a way that allows pieces to be replaced or repaired. This analogy can be applied to humans and produce results however, they are often short lived and lead to side effects or suppression, which manifest differently. Compare a human to a tree, which also originates from a single seed that grows many branches. In this view, all symptoms are viewed as various branches of the same tree and connected intimately. Rather than treating each branch, a homeopath aims to find the link between all symptoms and find a remedy for the trunk, the core original imbalance. In homeopathy, symptoms are seen as a highly intelligent and logical language. The symptoms show the observing and experienced eye what needs to be cured. All symptoms are seen as an expression of the body’s attempt to heal itself and therefore are studied in depth and should never be suppressed. The goal is to first analyze what the defence system is “already” doing to overcome the innate weaknesses or disease and then to administer a substance that is able to act exactly in the same direction to assist the immune system to do what it is already doing in a more efficient way. Homeopaths “assist and encourage” rather than “fight and oppose”. “Homeo” means “similar” and refers to finding something in nature that “mimics” and produces symptoms that are most “similar” to the “totality” of all symptoms. Homeopathy is based on the “law of similars” as opposed to conventional medicine, which uses the “law of opposites” to resist and suppress symptoms. The homeopathic motto is: “first do no harm”. A homeopath administers remedies in the smallest amount to get rid of “side-effects” which are inherent to all substances, whether natural or manmade. This brought homeopaths to dilute substances and further

clinical experience lead to the discovery that successive dilution and succession of a substance not only removed the side effects, but also refined the healing effect. Some theorize that the dilutions allow the substance to penetrate the cells much deeper resulting in longer lasting healing. Shahram Ayoubzadeh became an MD in 1986 and specialized in Infectious Diseases and Tropical medicine. His doctoral thesis on the healing effect of the doctor-patient relationship resulted in an in-depth study of the placebo effect and eventually to mind-body medicine, which defined his career. This led him to a degree as a Naturopathic Doctor and then specialization in homeopathy. He founded Integral Health Clinic in 1991 and followed by the Ottawa College of Homeopathy, where he has taught aspiring homeopaths for over a decade.

The Reclaiming of The Divine Feminine An 8 Week Program To Recapture Your Original Blueprint of Divine Femininity

This is a Women’s Only 8 Week Program that will take you on a journey from the lost self, the hidden self and the unexpressed self to the one you planned for long, long ago. During our 8 weeks together, we will weave a new tapestry for the life that you know is still pulsing within you and remove the obstacles that have gotten in the way of that life. The 8 Weeks will include: • Rewriting your Divine Feminine Journey – This sets the tone of our 8 weeks together. This is where you get really honest and unapologetic about the needs, desires and non-negotiables that are pulsing within you. • A new template for diet and lifestyle. To see how you are nourishing and feeding yourself. Together, we will create a nourishing program that works for you and your lifestyle to kickstart your body back to vitality and health. • 7 Unity Field Healing (UFH) Sessions. This new energetic healing is the most profound healing energy that is available on the planet at this time. To read more about UFH, please visit www.thenourishedsoul.ca and read the article entitled Unity Field Healing: The New Energy Work Making Big Shifts, on the blog. • Taking a deep dive into the Heart’s Will. We often confuse the Ego Will with the Heart’s Will. We will get very clear on what the Heart’s Will sees for the vital unfolding of your health, joy and truth. • Working with the energy of Surrender – healing our need to control and sacrifice Here are what clients have to say about working with Ann of The Nourished Soul: “There are no words to describe what it feels like to work with Ann, but I will try; her presence, warmth, clarity and support vibrate with me long after leaving each session. Each minute spent with her is like a hug from love itself. The strongest impact Ann has is in her ability to gently coax your soul more into its fullest expression of itself, more into your body, more into your every moment. Her skill in helping you open your eyes more fully to your own power, warmth, love and light, is, literally, out of this world. Ann is a beautiful channel of Divine wisdom. She helped me to shift so much in my life, my health and my perspective, largely through helping show me where I had already shifted, but was holding myself back from seeing that; helping me to embrace and acknowledge what my heart and soul already knew. Next to your own soul, Ann is the absolute best guide if you are yearning to explore your inner worlds, your deepest truth, your true potential, and the purest love.” ~ Tanya W. Kingston ON

A Journey From The Sacrificial Self to The Fully Expressed Self By Ann Jarvis of The Nourished Soul


e know when we’ve hit that point. That point in life where we say to ourselves, I’m not the person who I intended to be. Something needs to change. In fact, you haven’t made a single wrong turn (it’s not possible) and you’ve gotten to this place by Divine Design. But now you’re hearing the call. And the call is asking you to reclaim the self that you knew once a long, long time ago but, for various reasons, got lost along the way. How do we know we’re in that place? That place that is calling us to look inside, get really honest with ourselves, shed the old skin and walk the walk of our original blueprint. You feel unsettled. Something feels like it’s missing. There is a longing to use your voice again in honest ways. You might recognize that you have players in your life that no longer fit. Your health feels shaky and nothing seems to be making it better. You’re carrying weight that you just can’t lose. You feel like if something doesn’t change, you’ll break. All of these experiences are calls from your Divine Feminine Soul to come back to YOU. But we say to ourselves…people expect me to be a certain way. My culture expects me to tow a certain line. My family knows me as the selfless one that gives and gives and gives. But what if these outside influences that have colluded with each other no longer make sense for you? What if you being the ‘quiet giver’ no longer works for YOU? What if stifling your truth is now hurting you? What if no longer loving YOU first is tearing you down? The time has come on this planet for unabashed selfhonesty. The time has come to take those tenants within the self that have always been there and to EXPRESS them. The time has come to step into your Divine birthright of soft, truthful, loving femininity. After all, that’s why we’re here. We’re expressions of our Divine selves. We get to use our voices, hug our children, shout, get mad, cry, laugh, squeal in delight and kiss. When we hold back the authentic expression of our Divine Feminine, our bodies feel it, know it and wear it in painful ways. And when the scales become tipped too far in one direction, our bodies can break down. Women are particularly susceptible to autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, cancer, thyroid issues and adrenal burnout, when we turn away from ourselves to serve some outdated cultural ‘norm.’


Ann is an Intuitive Energy Healer and Holistic Nutritionist who combines her love of soulful surrender, radical self-honesty and healthy eating to live as vitally as possible and to help others do the same.

Your Voice Can Heal You


re you experiencing health-related problems such as weight gain, high cholesterol, heart disease, arthritis, asthma, etc? Are you fed up with the side effects of medications? Every aliment is reversible – you need not remain part of a statistic. We are constantly being bombarded with many quick or guaranteed cure-alls only to be disappointed and disgruntle from their ill effects. We all want  a  healthy life. The  human body is sacred, deserving attention and respect, yet in our hectic life, revolved around family and work, it is very difficult to remain healthy. Welcome to  Scalar Energy Technology in Quantum Sound Therapy  (QST) that helps you gain health and stay healthy without costing an arm and a leg.  Nutrients in food and proper metabolism are essential for its transformation into energy. Every bodily function uses oxygen in varying degrees. For example, digestion and assimilation process, nutrient absorption into blood stream, toxin-removal from blood, etc.

Your health depends on it. Your joy depends on it. The world is depending on it.

Everything in the universe, including our bodies, operate on energetic principles. Organs and glands vibrate at different frequencies. Frequency lower than designed, produces imbalance and generates a condition. Raising frequency returns body to its condition-free state. QST  is designed to create a powerful zero-point energy field, containing frequencies for optimal body performance. It addresses the needs of all systems: digestive, circulatory, respiratory, immune/ lymphatic, neurological, etc. A voice sample is taken, analyzed and a graph representing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies is generated. The software identifies frequencies your body is lacking and produces a 24-minute Personal Sound Frequencies  (PSF) track. Nothing to learn. SIMPLY LISTENING to YOUR PSF – while cooking, in car, along with background music, etc, almost anywhere, anytime – harmonizes your body, removing subconscious blocks that hold you back from living the life you were meant to. Our bodies are constantly exposed to toxins in food, air and water. The use of PSF allows you to counter these adverse effects, generate awareness and train your body to recognize the interconnectedness of the four bodies and the patterns that generate toxic conditions, essential for well-being. The balancing of four bodies by QST facilitates its return to pure, pristine and holy state. The harmonizing of the energies within our body brings humanity one step closer to the next level of consciousness – enroute to the essential healthy, and full consciousness.

Golden Light Therapies, in alignment with the manufacturer’s mission to make this technology available to all, offers you 24 min personal sound track with graph and its interpretation for only $40.

These afflictions tend to hit women harder because we’re still juggling old, outdated sentiments that it is better to abdicate, give without checks and balances, keep our mouths shut and sacrifice. That makes us ‘good girls.’ We hold ourselves back at work, in our friendship, in our marriages, in the bedroom, and even with ourselves. And to what end? When we stop adhering to a world that screams, we must look this way, and we must parent this way, and we must walk this way and talk this way, we leave our true selves behind. The truth of YOU is the most beautiful version of you. And it’s waiting. Now is the time to step up, step in and reclaim yourSELF. The time has come to make this world a better place for both women AND men by standing in your divine feminine and letting the world finally see the real you.

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, RRC, CRC was at a coffee store a few days ago doing some work and I could not help overhearing the conversation that the table beside me was having. As I took off my headphones, I heard one of them say in an emphatic voice that money cannot buy you happiness. I was struck by this statement and I’ve been reflecting on it since then. I’ve come to realize over my 31 years in the financial world that money is no more than a tool to help shape our world around us. You see, there is only three things you can do with money: Spend it, Save it and Give it away. It’s all up to us to decide what we will do with the money that flows through our hands over time. We need to be clear on our life goals and objectives over the short and longer term. We need to be clear on our values and our attitudes towards money. Take the time to listen to the daily dialog that you have about money. Make note of it. Is it a positive, supportive dialog? Are you treating money, in all its modern-day forms, with respect? Have you made your budget to help you manage the way you are allocating your money to the various areas of your life that are meaningful to you and your family?

Skin Care Salad:

Using Herbs and Vegetables for Your Body


hat to do with all that peppermint? Eating avocados and the remaining one might go off before you get to it? Put it on your skin and put all those nutrients to use! As some of you may have heard me say enumerable times, what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. The skin is the body’s largest organ and serves many purposes: it helps eliminate waste through perspiration; it can absorb ingredients applied topically in about 25 seconds; it is our first line of defence for invading potentially toxic substances and it regulates body temperature. Compelling reasons to give it tlc whenever possible. Let’s take a look at what may be growing in your garden. Perennials like sage and peppermint are awesome for soothing sore muscles. You can add the fresh or dried herb to the tub for a relaxing treat! Peppermint is also stimulating, so a great choice for a foot soak for tired

tootsies. Comfrey has been used for hundreds of years to help healing where bruises or cuts are concerned. Thyme can be used to create a face wash that helps control breakouts. Mix it with some diluted apple cider vinegar for a great treatment that helps balance the skin’s acid mantle, protecting it from infection. Echinacea is another herb that can be used to help acneic conditions. So along with the apple cider vinegar, what do your kitchens cabinets hold? Coconut oil can be used to cleanse the skin and moisturize. It is antibacterial, so can also be used as part of a natural deodorant. Avocado oil is awesome as a facial massage base. It is high in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, and Beta carotene. Delicious food for dry skin. Olive oil: yes please! Along with a great consistency for these drying months, it also contain Vitamins A, D, and K, and E. Of course, this is the tip of the iceberg when using herbs and kitchen ingredients for skincare.

The Divine Channel Channelled by Lisa Virtue


e speak to you on this day through the channel Lisa Virtue. She offers a conduit of communication from the realm of the Divine. This style of connection and communication is not unique to Lisa, nor is it a talent beyond the capabilities of most people. However, not all choose, nor are necessarily aware of its availability to them. What is a channel, you may ask? Simply put, it is a focussed tuning in to a frequency. A person who allows themselves to tune in to and receive understandings and information from an element of experience which, in this particular case, you call Divine. Channelling operates in various dimensions and those who choose to commune in this manner are able to tune in to a variety of awarenesses or experience planes. For example, some channels choose to connect with other life forms who exist in your physical plane. Lisa chooses to access a realm of Divine knowing. A place of higher consciousness where the severe limitations you are familiar with do not play a part. We speak as a group of conscious energy beings, part of the whole of all that is, yet with enough experience as individuals to retain the possibility of that type of awareness. For ease, the term angels, guides, spirits are often applied to ones of our nature. In truth there is a vastness much greater and less separate than may be easily expressed in your realm of dual nature. We share this with you as a reminder that communing with the greater understanding is not held from you. It is accessible. We share through those who have developed their own connection, in order to reach more of you. Finding connection or communion within yourself is possible and desirable. For there is the greater essence of you which is there as well. The higher self some have called this great, vast expression of you. You have the facility to commune with the less hindered focus of self.

We speak to you of this today to encourage you to release your intimidated or discouraged thoughts about your own abilities. Have faith in yourself that you too, are as divine a part of all that is as any other able to connect and commune with the greater, less limited realm of experience. It is time to move forth from greater limitation into vaster experience. We love you and know you will find the perfect connection for you in the optimal timing. Release your own shame, doubt, fear or anxious resistance and breathe in a breath of God (or the appropriate term that suits your belief of the vast oneness of creation). In fellowship, Parts of the Divine As a channel and healer Lisa aids you in rediscovering the you who truly lies beneath it all. Join her for the many events, offerings and courses presented this summer. Please Note: Lisa will be travelling extensively come August. Be sure to book your in-person sessions before her departure. 613-296-4271 Lisa@LisaVirtue.com www.LisaVirtue.com Facebook.com/LisaVirtue01 Instagram: LisaVirtueYoga

Saslove’s Meat Market Reviews One of a kind ..... best steaks in town! Joel is a true gentleman and cares about his customers!!! Keep up the great work! - T.I. So, after a few years of eating their delicious hormone and antibiotic-free chicken, we were presented with a chicken from the supermarket when visiting my wife’s parents one Christmas. We cooked it the way we always do, and it tasted like one of those white erasers for technical drawing. Sure, the per-pound price of the meat might be higher at Saslove’s than at the supermarket, but what you get for that extra money goes beyond the monetary. At Saslove’s we get people who like what they are doing, caring about what they are doing, providing the kind of meats they eat and would feed their families. At a supermarket you have a guy unloading boxes that came from some factory or other into the coolers, counting the seconds till the end of his shift. The lamb is also fantastic, and they have a nice selection of fish. Can’t speak to the beef or pork because we don’t eat those, but they look good. Go in and see what they have. You won’t be able to look at supermarket meat the same way ever again, at any price. Oh, and they deliver often, which is a huge thing because we live on Canterbury so it is a bit of a shlep for us to get there. - R.B.

This is one of my favourite places to shop in Ottawa. The food is amazing and the staff is very helpful. I love the chicken pies and who can avoid the chopped liver? If you want steaks, and who doesn’t, then this is the place to come. - F.L. Owner Joel is someone who genuinely cares about his customers. It is obvious that he wants to pass on savings for the customer, and puts that ideal before anything else. Saslove’s provides meat from local farms, which is proof they are community oriented. I love shopping at Sasslove’s, and am sure to buy all my organic meats from them. - R.B. Best butcher in town!! Got a fresh bird, and ready to impress Sunday! (I hope!!). Ps their salmon is also to die for! Smoked or their maple ginger marinade pieces! Mmm... - A.S. LOVE! Highly recommend this spot to anyone - if you’re not in the neighbourhood, worth the commute. - S.E. This place is legit. Quality and taste of meats here far surpass common grocery stores. Nice people too. - P.W. Great place, great service, great product and great ownership. Best Butchery in Town. - J.F.

Nobody makes a better breakfast with the friendliest servers than you folks at the Diner!! - J.D. Great place to shop for real food! - E.S. No one beats their perogies, hands down the best in Ottawa! - D.P. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get better than this! An amazing butchery and fantastic prepared foods. Best burgers anywhere anytime!!!! - M.B. Love being able to get all of our healthy protein here! - C.M. Had Sasloves New Superlative Chicken Strudel. A truly divine gastronomic experience for your earthly tastebuds! -S.S.
