Target The Source Of Your Pain with BioFlex Laser Therapy

BioFlex Laser Therapy By Veronica Newbury


ain can originate from any number of places in our bodies. Arthritis, tendonitis, muscle tears; these are conditions, among many others, that trigger physical and emotional pain. Those experiencing the effects of conditions like these may find solace through the benefits of laser therapy. Ottawa Laser Therapy is a company that promotes natural, drug-free healing that may even delay or eliminate the need for surgery. Headed by laser therapist Lindsay Mullen, the company advocates for and utilizes BioFlex Laser Therapy. The treatment system facilitates healing for a range of medical conditions and increases the production of endorphins, cortisol and the growth hormone. The treatment uses red and infrared light to accelerate healing and to decrease inflammation. The healing process begins when the light source is placed on the skin. After penetrating several centimeters, the particles of light, called photons, are absorbed by the mitochondria, the part of the cell that produces energy. This surge of energy triggers positive physiological responses and restores the cells to its proper function. The use of BioFlex is new to Ottawa. Only a handful of laser therapy clinics in the city are currently using it, including one of the clinics Lindsay contracts out of, Back on Track Physiotherapy.

Despite the treatment system’s novelty, the benefits that this kind of therapy brings are numerous and sure to draw in many who are suffering from both new injuries and chronic pain. Suitable for any age, laser therapy is effective for a variety of problems. Lindsay can treat the following symptoms and conditions, and many others: Headaches

Jaw (TMJ) Pain Whiplash Painful Shoulder

Low Back Pain


Tennis Elbow Sacro-iliac strain

Groin Strains

Repetitive Strain Injury

Thigh Strains Patello-femoral pain

Cruciate Injury Shin Splints

Nourished Soul Sessions “I believe that each of us has a radical truth within us that can literally set us free. It is up to us to find that truth and fling the door wide open. When we do, everything changes. Renewed health, deep happiness and better relationships. And then, we breathe in and we breathe out and we live the life that has always been waiting for us.” ~ Ann Jarvis Rising Star Healing Sessions During a Rising Star Healing session, Divine energy is channeled within the client through the chakra system. The chakra system releases what is ready to be released at that time, and brings forth what is ready to be revealed. It is the most powerful form of energy healing that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Clients have reported monumental shifts after a Rising Star Healing Session. Body Mapping Sessions These sessions are designed to recover the parts of us that have fragmented. We will go under the hood to see where we are not standing in our own truth; where we have abdicated our personal power, our feelings, our desires and our needs; where have we said ‘yes’ when we really meant ‘no;’ where have we fed ourselves insufficiently, emotionally or nutritionally. We uncover what our minds, bodies and souls have been crying out for us to listen to and begin the implementation. And then we begin to walk the walk of the open and vibrant individual. As our bodies are the storage-house of our truths, I assist you in finding those truths that are critical to your healing.

Exploring our Elegant Divinity— Out of the Box and into the Light


hat do the following have in common: our Creator, unified fields, “miraculous” healing, the Intergalactic Federation of Planets, ascended masters, the angelic realms, friends in the hollow earth, creative genius and soul expression? Unselfish Love and infinite Light. People’s awareness of and communication with higher dimensional worlds is increasing. Individuals are experiencing “impossible” physical healing, tapping into marvellous talents and abilities, programming their day through higher mind and strengthening their capacity to communicate with animals, with other humans, and with higher worlds merely through thought, images, concepts and feelings. What is happening? Because awakened individuals are conscious of the resonance of their inner vibrational divinity, they are increasingly attracted to the frequency of a higher vibratory realm of existence. As they listen to and act upon their inner sacred resonance, its frequency augments. Consequently, the need becomes more immediate to participate in communities housing similar citizens, be they from the surface of our planet, or from within or beyond it. The higher the mind, the more expansive the resonance, the deeper the heart, the more permanent the resonance. On November 1st, Ottawa Spiritual Pathways Centre welcomes a beautiful light to our Sunday Service, Regiena Heringa. Come enjoy an inter-active service that day. Regiena will also be offering a 1/2-day workshop entitled Exploring Our Elegant Divinity—out of the box and into the Light. As part of the workshop participants will explore two main themes: creating a deep and permanent anchor with the Divine Creator and from that sacred anchor, initiating meaningful communication with beings of Light. Exercises in the workshop include meditating and inner reflecting, communicating with higher mind, journaling and voluntarily sharing with the group. Afterwards, there will be an optional discussion with Regiena and those participants interested in pursuing topics presented in the workshop. Regiena’s workshop is well suited for individuals of a devotional nature, who have chosen the spiritual path as a way of life and who are accustomed to sitting quietly for at least one hour at a time.


Regiena Heringa ( has been a teacher, counsellor and messenger of spiritual advancement for many years, working in English and in French, in Canada and abroad. Through workshops, private sessions and transmission of information from higher realms, she helps truth-seeking and devotional individuals to feel, explore and live the inner realm of the Divine, to live this spiritual centring in every

day life and to tune into communities of beings of sacred consciousness who vibrate at exquisite levels of goodness and Light. WORKSHOP INFORMATION: The Heritage Room, Nepean Sportsplex, Entrance B Saturday, November 28th from 9:30 am to 12:45 (informal discussion 1 - 2 pm). Registration: 9:00 am. Cost: $45.00 for members of the Ottawa Spiritual Pathways Centre (OSPC) and $50.00 for nonmembers. Please bring: a warm shawl, blanket, writing materials (no electronic equipment, please), munchies if necessary and a bag lunch if you are staying afterwards for the discussion. Wear comfortable clothes. For further details and how to register, contact or telephone at 613.299.2289.

The Innocence of a Childs Wisdom Written by Alexis Nicol

Alexis Nicol

 Reiki  Reflexology  Reconnective Healing®  ACIM 613-263-7925


s I look into the past I see how many children of my era and before were often manipulated and bullied into conforming to believe and act in a certain way. Frequently told that we were to be seen - not heard – how sad! It brings me such happiness to see the youth of today not only being allowed but also encouraged to express their feelings in so many creative and delightful ways. Take for example YouTube. Recently my sister shared a very touching video of a young girl explaining to her parents how she feels when they don’t get along. She speaks with such an innocent honesty it is as though she is receiving this wisdom directly through her heart. Wouldn’t it be amazing if more adults would be open and really listen to the children? I’m not saying that you have to believe everything, but I do feel strongly that they are trying to express something that means a great deal to them. When anyone speaks with the innocence of a child it is our responsibility to listen and show them we care. We can all benefit from being a little more innocent, open and compassionate. This is a fun way that we our able to teach and learn from each other. These children seem to still have that Divine connection to the Grace of God while so many of us have lost it over the years. Too many of us have been tainted by believing what we’ve been taught, sometimes even by brute force. As we begin wiping away the stains a clearer, brighter and awesome picture will arise. What a wonderful gift to be free and open like a child, playfully and creatively showing us the beauty that the Universe/God gives us in every moment of this precious life. It is with an open heart that I wish every one of you pure delight as you embrace the wisdom of those beautiful children and especially the one within you that sees with the eyes of LOVE.

9 Essential Questions That Facilitate Increased Self-Growth


t could be argued that in essence the only real reason for living is to see how much you can learn about yourself. Asking effective questions can help to facilitate your development as a human being. A good question is one that provides a useful answer. Poor questions create limitations. Here are some questions to ask yourself to enhance your development: 1. What is the most important skill I’m lacking? Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Our weaknesses are often responsible for limiting our personal growth and success. There are advantages to being well-rounded. • You might be great with spreadsheets, but poor at meeting new people. Some of us are very persuasive while others have great creativity. • What do you feel you’re lacking in your life? Which skill can most help you fill that void? 2. How do I get in my own way? Do you ever sabotage your own best efforts? It’s possible to fear success. After all, gaining something often means giving up something else. It’s not easy to examine this part of ourselves, but the benefit is huge. 3. If I could go back in time, what advice would I give my 18-year old self? Hindsight is 20/20, but the mistakes you’ve made in the past are probably still occurring. Think about the choices you think you should’ve made as an 18-year old. They will provide insight into your current situation. 4. What are my greatest strengths? Make a list of your greatest strengths. How can you apply them to your life? Our weaknesses might hold us back, but our strengths can determine how high we can rise. Weaknesses are like a boat anchor while strengths are like the motor. • Ask your friends and family for their opinions, too 5. What am I able to control in my life? Worrying about things that are outside of your control is a waste of time. Focus on the aspects you’re able to influence. Apply your thoughts, time, and effort accordingly. 6. What do I want to stand for? How do you want to be thought of at the end of your life? Are you currently living in a manner that supports that vision? • Think about who you want to be, which could be quite different than what you want to be. 7. If I could accomplish one great thing in my life, what would it be? You probably have several options for your life, and it’s not always easy to choose. • Think about the one accomplishment that would mean the most to you. Then make a list of realistic steps you can take to achieve it.

8. What is the biggest limit I’ve imposed upon myself? It might be the belief that you’re not smart enough to finish college or socially astute enough to attract a wonderful spouse. There’s a 99.999% chance you haven’t worked hard enough to accurately determine what your limits truly are. • How can you set yourself free from this limit? 9. Who or what do I blame for my challenges? Sure, your parents made a lot of mistakes. Maybe your boss is a jerk. • Regardless of the source of your challenges, it’s always your responsibility to deal with them. This knowledge is actually great news because now you see that you don’t have to rely on someone else in order to move forward! Questions are a useful tool. The answers can give you greater insight and clarity. If you’re feeling lost or frustrated, utilize the power of questions to continue your self-growth journey.

e have greater potential than we perhaps realize, but sometimes we feel or think that we are stuck, that something is preventing us from moving forward. What I have realised in my life and practice is how we can move forward and release blocks, knots and sadness when we feel ready. It is not a question of “if” we can, but more like “when” we are ready. I have met numerous clients who felt from inside that they were now ready to release the past, to release sadness or even anger, so that they could live their lives more fully, live in the present and welcome a better future. They were tired of pulling the past with them, of experiencing tensions and knots in their body and depending on the history of the pain only a very few sessions were needed. One client said that she spent years working on herself, seeking various modalities, and surely those sessions were useful, but

Healing Power of the Sacred Art of Ancient Calligraphy


or many practitioners, calligraphy is an advanced spiritual practice requiring deep concentration, balanced emotions, and a deep connection with Heaven to ensure that the most beautiful message and energy will flow through the characters. Thus, in its highest expression, calligraphy produces so much more than pretty pictures for the wall. It is an ancient practice than can be applied in other areas of modern life, such as healing. The more aligned is the writer in soul, heart, mind, and body, and the higher the frequency of the writer, the higher the frequency of the technique and the more powerful the healing reflected in the stroke. Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha is the sole direct lineage holder of a unique form of one-stroke calligraphy called Yi Bi Zi (pronounced ee bee dz) by Tai Shi, preceptor to Puyi, the last emperor of China. Master Sha is a revolutionary soul healer who brings the power of soul to humanity. Soul can heal. Soul can transform all life. In Master Sha’s ideograms, the one stroke is further infused with a healing and transformative Source Field that can remove blockages at all levels of the soul, mind, and body, alleviating suffering and paving the way for radical transformation of all aspects of life.

Because Master Sha channels the Source, he transmits blessings to the calligraphies, instantly incorporating the healing and blessing power into these sacred scrolls. The Source Chinese Calligraphy scrolls create a healing field with extremely high frequency and vibration (power) that can heal and prevent sickness, balance emotions, transform relationships, and bring success to every aspect of one’s life. Tao Source Calligraphies will be displayed at our events (see ad below) to create a Tao Source Field for healing and rejuvenation. Experience sacred Tao healing blessings and learn how to apply soul healing in your life. Master Lynda Chaplin is a Divine Channel and Worldwide Representative of Dr. and Master Sha.

Pathwork: If only things would go the way they should “out there”, I’d be okay “in here” By Judy Size-Cazabon


work as a professional coach with clients, most of whom hold leadership positions. One of the many things they have taught me over the past decade is that to be effective in coaching we must bring spirituality into the field. As humans we are all spiritual beings; we seek meaning in life, we long for deeper connection (with self, other, and the Other), and we seek the Truth. Often without naming it, clients show up with a desire to reconnect with their deeper selves, with their hearts, with their fullest potential. Invariably there comes a moment in any coaching program where we feel called to ask the bigger questions; Who am I really? Where is my authentic power? What do I conceive of as possibilities for my leadership, for my life? What is it that will bring deeper fulfillment in my life? Any hope of finding answers to the above questions necessarily involves selfdiscovery. On an unseen level almost everyone to some degree, tends to wait for fulfillment from the wrong source. For each of us, deep down there is an unconscious belief that some person or circumstance “out there” must give us what it is we need in order to feel fulfilled and happy “in here”. And indeed this was true at one stage of our lives. As powerless children we were hugely dependent on others for our need fulfillment. Thus an outworn belief often continues to linger within our unconscious mind. The Pathwork lectures have continuously offered wisdom, support, and guidance for both my professional and personal life for over 20 years.

Getting to the Core Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher, healer


n counselling/healing work, I have found true permanent success is achieved only when the core issues, the faulty beliefs, are revealed, resolved and released. For years, I have been primarily using The Inner Child work to achieve this end and have happily been very pleased with the repeated successes I have seen with my clients. Recently, I have been certified as a practitioner of Theta Healing®, a system so quick, effective and profound, I am absolutely blown away by its unlimited potential. In the 25+ years I have been counselling, I have tried many different therapies and have never encountered one so amazing in terms of being able to bring fast, permanent change--- releasing the limiting beliefs that keep us feeling stuck, anxious or unhappy. Combining the Theta Healing® with my already very powerful Inner Child work and I can just about guarantee you will see immediate results from anxiety, anger, grief, guilt and shame. Generally, all of these patterns began in early childhood between the ages of 3 and 8. At that time they were imbedded into your subconscious mind which runs your emotional

These subconscious emotional patterns continue playing out through your life, creating pain and suffering, grief, anger and fear until, fed up with it all, you decide to take the steps to explore your operating system, your childhood beliefs, that have been running your emotional show. It is in bringing the false beliefs to the light if awareness they may be healed. In the Inner Child work together we heal the child within who is then free to emotionally grow up integrating into our adult self in a balanced, whole and healthy way. In the Theta® work, we find the early beliefs, remove them and replace them with healthy programs of self-love and acceptance. Both of these two modalities heal the wounding of the inner child who, no matter how wonderful his/her parents were, did not receive the unconditional love, validation, safety and support needed to thrive in life. Come experience these two modalities working together so quickly, with your permission and desire, to create for you, the balanced, life-loving adult you were meant to be. When you release the limiting core beliefs you are carrying you are free to tap into your unbounded, magnificent Self and you are free to lighten up, open up and soar. Come fly with me--- release the limiting thoughts that keep you from experiencing your grandness, the God- Self you are meant to be. Rev.

Discerning What’s Organic and Inorganic by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.


here’s no question that, at the highest view, humanity and Earth evolve naturally. However, the challenge occurs when life is no longer entirely organic. This is especially important to hold in our awareness now. As a whole, Earth’s consciousness has recently, organically, evolved out of the 3rd dimensional Earth to the future timeline of 5th dimensional Earth. At a subatomic and quantum level, we are in the “in-between” worlds. During our transition to future timelines, we can be vulnerable to the aggressive black/anti-Christ forces that are surfacing to manipulate or possess any energetic weakness. So keeping our energetic body strong is important (use your 12D Shield). These are the times to pay attention and use our discernment. When the quality of our experiences are natural and organic we often experience expansion and meaning. By contrast, our experience of the inorganic may be when our energy feels stifled, there is no flow, or no ability to create any movement of energy. This latter is where something can be trying to disrupt our timeline and our relationship with our God-self, either on a personal level or through the collective mind: ego fears, mental body distortions, miasma/ancestral blockages, mind control, trauma and countless other influences. The core low frequency, inorganic energies that continue to be pushed into the field, and then leveraged through the negative alien agenda when people engage with them are: victim-victimizer addiction patterns, sexual distortions and addictions, and armageddon/terrorism/ cataclysm fears (dimensions 1- 3). We are wise to be vigilant of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. We may need to clear, upgrade, or reconnect our etheric and physical bodies to override inorganic limitations and restore our organic nature. Working with the Hieros Gamos consciousness field, I offer etheric surgery for this exact purpose. We can consciously participate in our discernment and ask, “Who or what is running my life right now?”, and “Is the source of it organic or inorganic?” There is nothing to fear here. Our love is always most powerful. However, our awareness and conscious choice to align with our God-self as our authority makes the difference on Earth now.

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

No More Boring Date Nights


By Marlene and Bob Neufeld


n last month’s article, we introduced the idea that play is important for a healthy relationship. In his book on Play, Stuart Brown describes a research study about date nights. “Couples that made a point of doing things that were new and unfamiliar had a much higher satisfaction measure than the couples who spent time doing familiar things. … Stepping out of a normal routine, finding novelty, being open to serendipity, enjoying the unexpected, embracing a little risk, and finding pleasure in the heightened vividness of life. These are all qualities of a state of play. … In order to keep things hot, people have to keep growing, keep exploring new territory in themselves and each other. In short, they have to play.“ We have made a practice for a number of years of trying new things. We have joined an improv theatre group, taken ballroom dancing lessons and are on the look-out for activities that will stretch us, take us into the unfamiliar and possibly even a bit of discomfort. A frequent question between us is “what could we do today that would be unlike us?” Answering this question has taken us to the Casino, the Ottawa naked swim, a burlesque circus show, among many other interesting outings. Robert Greene, the author of the book, The Art of Seduction, says that surprise is at the root of seduction.

ADRENAL FATIGUE? Essential oils to the rescue!


o we have just been through a shift back into routines from our carefree summer, a change in temperatures and seasons, and a stressful election. We might be feeling a little dazed, achy or lethargic. Our sleeping habits may be erratic. Maybe it is a little harder to get to the gym or to eat the right foods. Whatever the reason, our glands can take a beating when we are not operating at peak efficiency. That’s right, I’m talking adrenals, among other important glands that regulate functions in the body. Our adrenals are responsible for the famous ‘flight or fight’ response, which traditionally, served to help either flee a dangerous situation, or stay and defend our turf. Nowadays, the hormones which course though our bodies during an ‘adrenal rush’ don’t subside and adjust back to normal levels because our stress has become chronic and we retain many of these ‘worry’ chemicals in our bodies. Along with sleep, eating right and exercise, as well as ‘me time’ and meditation/yoga, I want to mention a little gem I like to call black spruce. Black spruce (Picea mariana) is a proud Canadian which I count among

Coffee Beans Are Being Coated With Sugar at Coffee Plantations By Judy Spence, RN, ND(QC)


hank goodness I drink my coffee in a purer state, black, no sugar. I was able to notice in some brands of coffee for my Keurig, that I was tasting sugar even though I add no sweetening whatsoever. I investigated and learnt that a new processing method now coats coffee beans with sugar right at coffee plantations. Thankfully, it leaves a tell tale taste of sugar in the cup of brew. Labelling however does not mention that there is any sugar content. Diabetics using insulin need to be aware because they may want to change brands. Sugar addicts who work hard at avoidance deserve to know as do we all. At the NAET Clinic Ottawa and NAET Clinic Outaouais, we treat basic food components for better utilization. Here we would treat B vitamins and also a mix of Sugars so that people will better metabolize all forms of sugar. Proper utilization of B Vitamins is necessary because they enable the body to utilize sugars. NAET treatments

my top ten essential oils for scent alone! But, like all therapeutic grade essential oils, it also does great things for body, mind and spirit. It is wonderful for clearing lungs and healing sickness due to its antiseptic and disinfectant properties. It is also wonderful for sore muscles because it has pain-relieving properties. But getting back to the adrenals: there is a specific protocol given by aromatherapist Suzanne Catty, for adrenal fatigue. She suggests drinking 30 mL of black spruce hydrosol (a water-based dilution of the plant) in 1.5 litres of water, along with applying 15 drops of essential oil (I would dilute this in case of sensitivity) on the adrenal and kidney points on the lower back before showering for a period of three weeks. Of course, there are other essential oils that can assist the body-calming oils, for example, that help with stress in general, oils that help you get a good night’s sleep, and so on.

Questions in Mediation (This is an encore presentation of one of my most popular columns from 2011.)


egular readers of my articles may have noticed that I often write about the importance of questions in mediation. Here are some of the questions I feel are important to ask at the mediation table. What are your hopes for this process? People in the midst of separating often feel they have been emotionally ground down by an increasingly difficult relationship with their partner, and often by life itself. They are afraid to hope, to dare to think that life can be better in the future. By asking this question, I am trying to show them that mediation is a process in which they can work on a different course for their lives. I try to help them see that, while it may be some way off, there is light at the end of this tunnel. What are your fears for this process? This is the opposite of the “hopes” question above. Most people’s quick response to this question is some variation of “I’m afraid my partner won’t be fair to me in this process.” When they hear that their partner, in fact, fears the same thing about them, the couple can often make a joint commitment at the beginning of mediation to work hard to get an agreement that is fair and balanced for both of them and their children.

• 34 years’ experience as family lawyer-mediator • Mediation of Separation Agreements, Marriage Contracts and Cohabitation Agreements • Evening and weekend appointments available • Sliding fee scale • Free initial consultation Evita M. Roche 33 Somerset Street West, Ottawa, ON K2P 0H3 email:


What makes that fair? There comes a point in every mediation where one person insists on obtaining a concession from the other person that seems – at least on the face of it - to be outrageously unfair to the other person. After being reminded of his or her commitment to work towards a fair and balanced agreement, he or she can explain more about why that particular concession is so important, and why it seems fair, given all the circumstances. If it is really important for that person to obtain that concession, the couple may then talk about a different concession that may be equally important to the other person.

What if……..? Mediation offers a couple the opportunity to work together to create solutions that, although somewhat different from what the law would provide, are fair and balanced for them in their particular circumstances. “What if….?” questions encourage a couple to push for better, more creative solutions, rather than to simply compromise at the first sign of disagreement. Mediation is not about just resolving disputes; it’s about striving to create the best possible agreements. “What if….?” questions, posed first by the mediator and then hopefully by the couple to each other, encourage them to think and talk in the language of possibilities.

What drew you to each other in the beginning? I sometimes ask this question at a point in mediation when people are very angry with each other and where they have begun to personalize the dispute, to blame each other for the impasse, and to engage in a destructive back and forth game of recriminations. This question is a way of breaking that pattern, of reminding them that there was a time when they interacted in a different way. While they certainly don’t become friends at that point, this question is often enough to calm them down to the point where they can get back to the task at hand and continue working towards a fair agreement.

Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa law school, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

Transforming the Negative Benefits of your Life Challenges

protected us or served us in some way. As we grew older, however, these beliefs began to limit us and our challenges became more apparent. If you are truly ready to find relief from your life challenges, now is the time.

What Happens After You Quit by Dr Luke


s a smoker, you may love the bliss and calm of smoking. Have you ever thought of the bliss you can feel after you quit? What happens after 20 minutes of giving up smoking? The minute we give up this habit, the risk of heart attack minimizes and the blood pressure rate returns to normal.

After 10 years: After minimizing the danger of heart attack, 10 years of no smoking reduces the danger of lung cancer by half, as well. After 15 years: After this much time a person who once was a chain smoker generally leads a healthy life as a person who has never smoked.

After 10 hours: The level of carbon monoxide drops by half after 10 hours of giving up smoking. Oxygen levels in your body will begin to return to the needed amount. After 48 hours of quitting smoking: Much of the nicotine has left your body allowing your system to learn how to function the way it should, without nicotine dependence. After one year: Quitting smoking for 1 year reduces the risk of heart attack by half.

“I Can Make You Stop Smoking in One Hour”

“I Can Make You Stop Smoking in One Hour” If you’re having trouble kicking the Evil Habit Dr. Luke Michael Howard can transform even the most ardent smoker into a healthy non-smoker IN JUST ONE HOUR.

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.

onstipation is a frequent gastrointestinal problem that can cause a lot of discomfort and put strain on the digestive system. Being constipated means not being able to have regular bowel movements but it can also include having difficulty passing stools, hard stools, or a feeling of blockage or of incomplete passage after a bowel movement. Fortunately, constipation is usually temporary, but chronic constipation can cause further problems or can be a sign of an underlying disorder. A number of factors can cause constipation, including not drinking enough fluids, eating a poor diet or not enough fiber, not enough physical activity, illness, long term use of laxatives, or it can be a result of certain medications or diseases. In Western medicine, the solution for constipation in most cases is simple and involves eliminating the factors that are causing the problem. In other words, eating lots of dietary fibers (vegetables, fruits, beans, and whole grains), drinking a lot of fluids, getting regular exercise, and taking time for the toilet and not ignoring the urge for a bowel movement. However, in some cases, constipation can be a chronic problem that isn’t easy to resolve in spite of our efforts. In Chinese medicine (TCM), constipation results from a stagnation of internal heat and dryness resulting in a lack of fluids, stagnation of the flow of energy from emotional upsets, deficiency of qi-energy or blood from internal injury, strain, stress or a lack of physical exercise. Constipation is classified into five categories of imbalance that inhibit the proper function of the large intestine, as well as the spleen, stomach and kidneys.  It is interesting that Chinese medicine has such specific differentiations for constipation, whereas Western medicine sees all of the different types of constipation as the single same problem. From there it is a matter of targeting the imbalance and correcting it in order to restore the body’s normal, healthy functioning. This in turn, helps to resolve not only the problem of

Laura’s Numerology News For November 2015 How to calculate your personal monthly number for November Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth and then add the number 1 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 1. Then add 6+1=7. You would read point number 7 if this was your birthday. If you still have trouble, email me 1. Do not waste this month. It is time to turn your money making ideas into reality. Look for creative ways to market yourself, or your product ASAP. This is one of the best periods of the last nine years for you to take a step forward and advance in your business or career. This is a great buy or sell influence. 2. Close as many other doors as you can and finish as many of your project as possible and you will float through Nov. Your emotions will be raw and visible, so try to vent them in a health way. There are relationships in your life that must change, or end, now. 3. Have you lost your focus? Are you feeling scattered? Slow down and find Zen by doing something creative this month. Your focus comes back next month, so be patient. If you decided to take the month off for a bit of fun, this would work. The month of Dec. will not allow this luxury. 4. Business trips are fine this month, but a fun filled trip should be left for another time. The number 4 has a connection to work and duty, and usually lots of it, so place your dig deep and work hard. The rewards come as soon as Dec.

5. Big changes, explosions, and opportunities are in your face, this month. Boxing gloves might be required, as conflicts and outburst can happen under this influence. You must take control of your life situation, now, and get out of any RUTS, once and for all. This is a great influence for publicity, performing, and selling. Take a trip and have an adventure. Use this whacky wild energy well. 6. I know that you would like this year to be over now, but it is not, so buck up. You have probably worn your nose off, on the grindstone of life. This is a rebuilding year and it demands so much work, that you could be totally overwhelmed at this point. You must do a final check to see if all of your foundations solid, now. (Health, home, career, etc.) 7. STOP EVERYTHING. You will need to rest and take extra care of yourself, in Nov. Try to take the focus off your relationships and work obligations and place them on your frazzled self for most of the month of Nov. There will be many demands in Dec., so get ready. Take a solitary vacation or sabbatical as, money and business projects come to a halt, anyway. This will pass. 8. What have you been thinking of spending your money on? You can safely go for it, now. This influence is great for all purchases that are connected to domestic life. Fix the roof, redo the basement, or buy your Christmas presents early, whatever. You could receive some unexpected money or recognition at this time. Keep your eyes peeled for advancement opportunities. 9. No, the sun is not peeking over the horizon yet. Try to remain patient. I know that you have had more than your share of ups and downs, this year. I am sure that your head is so full of worries and frustrations that you feel it could blow. The sun should be peeking above the horizon by the end of the year. You must continuing looking after the most important person…. YOU. Do not ignore this, please.

eath is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no differentials into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant; it is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a neglible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am ouot of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well.

Awareness Allows Change

Holistic Group Healing


e struggle to improve ourselves, with lists of goals taped to our bathroom mirror and images of slim healthy people taunting us from the fridge, often in vain. Change is not mapped out well in our culture. We are expected to be able to do it using just our intentions without clearly understanding the brain’s urgent need for constancy, safety, comfort and survival. Pushing ourselves (and others) too hard or in a wrong direction is like trying to stretch out an elastic band and hold. Eventually we get tired and let go, rebounding back into old habits with a vengeance. We only have so much self-discipline as a physical brain function. Does this mean we allow ourselves to indulge in anything until we have some magical insight? No, this doesn’t work either; it only strengthens bad habits—and low self-esteem! Change is a subtle thing, a profound process of evolution that happens effortlessly when we are ready. As we become aware of our real physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs, we can take the next steps that are right for us. Many things facilitate this transformational awareness, but only when used with honesty, selfacceptance and humility by all parties involved. They include heart to heart conversations in safe

environments, mindful meditation, constitutional homeopathy, overcoming challenges, grateful prayer and being with people whose love can reach in and touch our soul. It is from our soul that we manifest our best self…however getting through the layers of pain that cover it needs to be a careful process; go too quickly and resistance kicks back. Maybe, instead of pinning photos of cool people to our mirror, we can gaze at images of folks who radiate wisdom, humour, acceptance and peace, nudging us to be kind to ourselves on this challenging, human part of our journey. Slower is faster. Dr. Katherine Willow N.D. is retired from private practice and now runs gentle groups for healthy change, meditations and classes for children to explore their spirituality. She is continually amazed and humbled by the layers of pain asking to be healed in herself…

Ever since smart meters arrived on our homes and businesses with no testing how they would effect out health and well being people are suffering with sleepless nights, migraines, pain and nausea. Even your doctors do not understand how these frequencies are affecting us as they just prescribe more medication. Hydro and Health Canada denies the damage from these so called smart meters on our health. Remember that with the old analog meters we have had in out homes for 40 to 50 years; no fires, no pollution and no breakdowns, when these new meters breakdown in a couple of years we will have to cover the cost of replacement. When I hear clients say “I cannot afford the EMF System System to protect my home and family” I say how can you not?

The Voice of Sound Healing and Music Therapy


ound healing, sound medicine and music therapy offer a range of techniques and models for supporting the healing of the body, mind and spirit. Sound healers sometimes use singing bowls. The vibration of the bowls allows the body and mind to relax and release blocks to the flow of energy through the chakras and meridians, promoting prevention and healing of dis-ease. It is a receptive technique, where your job is to relax and let the sounds flow through you. Some people go on journeys meeting guides, while others report a relaxing and softening musical meditation and sound massage. I engage the healer’s voice, singing in an empathic, intuitively guided vocal improvisation. As a singer and composer, the melodies are beautiful to listen to. Many sound experts say that the voice is the most important of all the healing instruments available to us. We all have one, naturally. For non-singers, you may find that through expressive vocal work, your singing voice can open up! Common vocal sound healing techniques are toning into the chakras and chanting with spiritual texts. I am exploring and developing other techniques, too, for tapping the voice’s healing potential with a small group of eager learners. This is an interactive, experiential adventure for those wanting to dig a bit deeper. Music therapy draws from these resources and adds its own. Using rhythmic and sometimes melodic instruments, non-musicians may find a voice for feelings

Sri Chinmoy Answers

Question: What is the difference between prayer and meditation? SRI CHINMOY: The difference between prayer and meditation is this: when we pray, we feel that our existence is a one-pointed flame soaring upward. When we meditate, we throw ourselves into a vast expanse, into an infinite sea of peace, or we welcome the infinite Vast into us. When we pray, we talk and God listens. When we meditate, God talks and we listen. When we pray, we go up to God; when we meditate, God comes down to us. Ultimately they are the same. The highest prayer was uttered by the Saviour Christ: “Let Thy Will be done.” This prayer is also the beginning of meditation. When prayer stops its journey, meditation begins. Meditation is like going to the bottom of the sea, where everything is calm and tranquil. On the surface of the sea there may be a multitude of waves, but the sea is not affected below. In its deepest depths, the sea is all silent. When we start meditating, first we try to


which are hidden away. Engagement in creating music stimulates the brain’s elasticity, tying together selfexpression, emotion, communication, coordination, creativity, and focus into whole brain-whole person activity. It can unlock unconscious, unresolved emotions that can gently surface for acknowledgement and release. This work is often interactive and enhances self-expression and whole brain thinking. Research shows music therapy is invaluable for people with a wide range of special challenges, such as autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, mental illnesses, strokes and a whole range of developmental disorders.

reach our own true existence—that is to say, the bottom of the sea. Then, when the waves come from the outside world, we are not affected. Fear, doubt, worry and all the earthly turmoils just wash away, because inside us is solid peace. Thoughts cannot touch us, because our mind is all peace, all silence, all oneness. This is meditation. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

The Only Limit is Our Imagination!


s we know, everything, without exception, is energy. And that energy is directed by our intention. We are all working with the Light, shining it as brightly as we can, spreading it around the world, and raising humanity’s vibration. How wonderful that is!! Many of us have likely seen or been aware of, first-hand, the power that our intention-setting has on the world around us. It is phenomenally powerful, to say the least! Most of us have also likely come across distant healing – where the intention to send healing energy is everything. And it works, since we truly are all connected…and there is no time and space in the world of spirit. In my sound healing practice one day, I had a client on the table, having a session…but also my mum in England was sick at that time. So I also imagined her on the table with my client. Stacked on top, in fact!! My client set their intention for the session, and I also set a separate intention for my Yuen. Inspired by not only the physical aspects of this rich medicine she is passionate about the spiritual and emotional aspects of our health and healing process.  Please visit for more information!

mum. Both received the healing. After that, I was pondering the concept some more, and the next time I did a session on a client, I also included all others in the world that needed healing. All virtually stacked up on top of each other on the table! Again, a separate intention was established for the client and the rest of the people. Then I thought…”Why stop at this? Why not the whole of humanity? In fact, why not all beings in the world? No…wait a minute…why not all beings in the Universe? In God’s creation?” So I imagined all piled up on the healing table! Of course I’ll never know what effect that session had on all the other beings apart from the client, but that doesn’t matter at all - I trust that the Light went where it was needed. The best part is that the client never felt squashed at all!

The Power of Forgiveness By Rev. Roxanne Buckle, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa

Ready to live healthily? In peace, with loving relationships? Then it’s time to forgive! Living in a state of unforgiveness means holding on to anger, resentment, hurt, and grudges or feeling guilty. It can make you experience “dis-ease”! Instead of living our true nature which is love, we experience pain and suffering, high blood pressure, addictive behaviors, and bad relationships. It’s like holding a clenched fist, and forgiveness allows us to unclench the fist, rediscovering the strengths we always had and relocating our limitless capacity to understand and accept other people and ourselves. Peace is built on the decisions we make and the actions we take in every moment. Nelson Mandela once said “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.” Deciding to forgive leads us ahead on the path to freedom and unlocks the door that has kept us a prisoner. So what’s keeping us from forgiving? Often it is the belief that forgiveness means the offender didn’t hurt us, or that forgiveness will somehow invalidate the hurt or condone the behavior. We think that we need to understand why the offender hurt us and make the offender face the consequences! Forgiveness

Nor should forgiveness be postponed until justice is served. Forgiveness doesn’t wait for punishment or closure. True forgiveness is an act we do for ourselves, that calls us to express our divine power of will. We hold resentments, therefore the work of forgiveness is ours to do. We may blame our feelings on another person, but feelings are not in the other individual, they are within us. The conflict is in us and we are at war with our true nature. There is no resolution to the conflict until peace reigns in our souls and we are expressing our loving self. Forgiveness is thus reduced to a simple idea: a return to love. (excerpted from a Sunday Lesson by Rev. Roxanne Buckle, Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa.

My Yoga Journey By Zofia Kumas-Tan


y yoga journey began years ago, in a church basement, where I started yoga classes with my mother. We attended for a few years, and then I shifted my attention to my schooling, my career, and then motherhood. In 2014, my mother and I started taking yoga classes together once again. And now I find myself at the end of a 200h teacher training program in Traditional Hatha Yoga. I hadn’t really planned to sign up for yoga teacher training, but a number of events came together in my life, and there I was at Wishingtree’s yoga teacher training information session. Even then, I was unsure whether I could balance the demands of coursework with home responsibilities. But Rupa, co-founder of Wishingtree, told me that if I could set aside only 15 minutes each day for yoga, then I would manage just fine. And indeed I did. I learned a lot during my training. We covered topics ranging from: correct and safe performance of the asanas (poses); meditation; pranayama (breathing); mantras and chanting; the subtle energy body; and the Self, its nature, and its evolution. In truth, the learning has not ended with the training, but continues to unfold in my daily life.

One of the most important lessons for me has been about balance. Did you know that “hatha” is derived from the words sun (“ha”) and moon (“tha”)? Hatha yoga is about balancing the body’s energies. For example, holding a pose, we can be aware of the energies that ground us and lift us in the pose; when these energies are balanced, we experience ease and grace. The parallels to everyday life are many, for example: as we move through our day, are we focused on the completion of everyday tasks (too grounded), or are we floating in a cloud of dreams, hopes and fears (ungrounded)? Balance, ease, and grace in daily life are possible once we cultivate awareness and learn to guide our energies. We can keep both feet on the ground and reach for heaven at the same time. Rupa has been practicing Yoga since 1996. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom. Living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. She has found a way to balance both.

Moving In To The Flow Channeled by Lisa Virtue


he time of shifts has been strong. You are feeling the depths of you coming forth to be exposed, to bring to light the parts long since dormant, ignored or set aside. The parts that challenge you, that rile you, that bring you the sense of disharmony, yet truly are your greatest allies. Showing strongly that which requires your focus and your love.

As this increases for you the adjustments will come. Trust. Find and allow yourself to take advantage of the tools and assistance that comes to your awareness, often sent through your Guides. The flow is easy as you align and challenging as the persistence of the pain is in your focus.
