Live Blood Analysis Live Blood Analysis is the process of looking at live blood sample through the microscope in order to help the patient arrive at their optimum level of health. Through looking at indicators within the blood we can determine how well the body is handling daily stressors (such as environmental toxins, diet and lifestyle, mental/emotional stressors, medical treatments and procedures etc) and what needs to be done in order to bring the body back into balance. It is a preventative tool that is an extremely useful to bring the body back to its optimum state of functioning. Nutrition Counseling Nutrition Counseling refers to the process of understanding the unique way that each person’s body functions and works at its optimum. Various measures are then implemented in order to bring about balance and health in the patient. A number of methods are used in order to bring forth a deeper sense of health and well being including diet, lifestyle, herbs, minerals, vitamins and minerals.

FAQs: LIVE CELL MICROSCOPY What is it? Around the world, the blood is known as ‘the river of life.’ That is because the blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells and carries wastes away from them. By projecting a small drop of blood from the tip of a finger on to a darkfield microscope I am able to see my clients blood ecology. What can it tell me? The human body is constantly trying to achieve homeostasis, or, simply put, balance. In conjunction with a nutritional assessment, live cell microscopy can be used to help clients work towards optimal nutritional wellness by detecting possible imbalances such as: • nutritional • hormonal • oxidativestress (free radicals) • liver stress • microbial activity • under-oxygenation • immune stress • over-active or under-active digestion The live cell microscopist then works with the client to design a nutritional and lifestyle plan that supports the body as it attempts to regain optimal balance.

any clients who come to my offices are suffering from feelings of being hurt by another and are hoping very much that the other person will apologize to them. Somehow when the other person just says, “I am sorry.”, they do not feel better. They want more than a simple statement and here is why:

Letting Go of Perfectionism




erfectionism can cause us to feel so stuck. It creates fear and blocks you from living your dreams. When you are worried about making everything perfect, nothing gets done. Here are some tips to help you let go of perfectionism so you can move forward: 1. Pay attention to your inner thoughts. Perfectionism can sneak up on you and take over your thoughts. Listen to your self-talk. • Try to release negative thoughts such as, “You’re not good enough,” or, “Not like that! It must be perfect!” • Substitute these negative thoughts with positive thoughts, like, “This looks great! You did a good job. It’s a fine effort.” 2. Forgive yourself and others. Forgiveness can free you from perfectionism. Remind yourself that no one is perfect, and everyone has their faults and foibles. Learn to forgive yourself and others for mistakes. 3. Keep in mind that second chances are usually available. Even if you can’t do something perfectly the first time, you may have the opportunity to fix it later. 4. Celebrate tiny wins. Instead of focusing on what still needs to be done, focus on your wins. Each time you finish something it is a small victory. It is important to celebrate your accomplishments - even small ones.

6. Change your mindset. Changing how you think about things can be a powerful way to combat perfectionism. The way you view the world can influence every part of your being. Learn to find the good in everything and be happy with it. You can learn to move past perfectionism. Try these tips and see a coach or therapist if you need more help. Once you free your mind from perfectionism, you will feel happier and success will come easier to you.

Have you ever noticed that when we feel stuck - we become the expert of everything that does NOT work... The truth is that in order for a problem to exist - the solution must also exist!

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How consciousness?






SRI CHINMOY: Creation is the descent of Consciousness. God wants to be fulfilled in millions and billions of forms. He wants to enjoy Himself divinely and supremely in infinite ways and in infinite forms and shapes. That is why Creation started. Consciousness is the spark of life which connects each one of us with the Universal Life. It is the thread that puts us in tune with the universe. It is our consciousness which connects us with God. It is the link between God and man, between Heaven and earth.

Dolphin Dentistry

Human consciousness is made up primarily of limitation, imperfection and ignorance. This consciousness wants to remain on earth. It gets joy in the finite: in family, in society, in earthly affairs. Divine consciousness is made up of Peace, Bliss, divine Power and so forth. Its nature is to expand constantly. Human consciousness feels there is nothing more important than earthly pleasure. Divine consciousness feels there is nothing more important and significant than heavenly Joy and Bliss on earth. Human consciousness tries to make us feel that we can exist without God. When it is in deep ignorance, human consciousness feels that there is no necessity for God. We see millions and billions of people who do not pray or meditate. They do not care for the existence of God either in Heaven or in their day-to-day earthly lives. But the divine consciousness is not at all like that. Even the limited divine consciousness that we have makes us feel at every moment that there is a supreme necessity for God. It makes us feel that we are on earth precisely because He exists. And when we cherish divine thoughts, the divine consciousness makes us feel it is He who is inspiring us to cherish these divine ideas. In ordinary human consciousness there is no purpose, no positive goal. But the divine consciousness makes us feel that in everything there is always a divine purpose, aim, ideal and goal; and because God is limitless and infinite, that goal is always transcending itself. In the divine consciousness, everything is constantly expanding and growing into higher and more fulfilling Light. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

have been writing about my travels to Australia and Italy this year, but have not talked about the real experience, which was the inner journey which allowed me to start to expand my outer world. How are the two related? Well, this year my world really changed. And I am trying very hard to step out of fearor rather into it: ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. Because I believe everything I want in on that other side. All my life, I have played it safe by living in the same town, attending local university, getting a government job. Playing it safe means minimum expansion, which may seem great at the onset, but then, over time, I realized that I could not possibly be everything I am supposed to be by staying in the same mindset, let alone the same physical environment. My first foray was to Australia. I tried to book lodging and trips from Canada, but felt daunted by the whole process. Fear of failure (of what, exactly?). The flight was the longest I have ever taken. And air travel

has changed considerably since I went to Chile some 30 years ago. Like a lot! Somehow it all worked out, though, and I arrived down under without mishap. In fact, the trip was largely without mishap, which was, of course, a huge lesson in itself. I am sure you are familiar with the statistic that about 85 % of the things we worry about never happen. 85%!!! What a colossal waste of time spent worrying. This fall, I went to Italy and, being a neophite on-line ticket purchaser, made a mistake in choosing my flight and ended up with a very long overnight layover in Munich. The seasoned traveler would have known it would work out. I did not. And so my trip was coloured by this looming obstacle between me and getting home in a timely manner. Ultimately, it worked out (of course) after several delays and an overnighter in Montreal. This universe doesn’t kid around when you want to expand. In retrospect, the lessons look easy: see what you are afraid of. Go through it. Learn the lesson(s). The reality is, we always have the choice to face our fears or avoid them. Facing them leads to expansion. Avoiding them leads to stagnation. This applies to every aspect of your life: I am also studying more holistic modalities, which I love. And is a constant source of amusement to my friends as I accumulate certificates and am not practising regularly in my own clinic. Yet. My biggest challenge is to step out of my head and just start. So here’s to the next big adventure! I am planning it now. I guarantee there will be challenges and I guarantee there will be growth.

 But by applying Bruno Gröning’s simple teaching, people are finding the way to regain their well-being and resume living fully-effective lives.

Knowing that help-seekers need support and to learn more, Bruno Groening himself established communities as a model to be carried forward. His lectures, transcribed and translated into many languages, help us take the first steps to experience direct connection to the Divine, and to Nature. He didn’t want to start a new religion but encouraged all to continue in their own faith with hearts engaged, empowered to do good with their lives.

Releasing the Burden of the Past


recently completed a workshop with Myrna Martin on Healing Early Developmental Traumas. It always amazes me to see how profound our life history is, and how unless we address it directly, some parts of our past may remain hidden within us as a source of limitation. During this five-day workshop we explored the issues and limitations that we may carry from the past. We also had the opportunity to do our own “shadow work”. Shadow work simply means addressing that which is within us but exists in an unobvious or unconscious form. I believe that working on ourselves is essential to reach our potential and free ourselves from those limitations. During the workshop, I experienced that within me there existed a layer of childhood memories which was well hidden as if at the bottom of a lake, hidden under a layer of dirt and that through this workshop it was able to rise and float just beneath the surface. From there, I was able to look at it and see its impact on my own life. I also realized that my own mother’s life, and her mother’s, and my entire family line, had wounds that were existing within me, and limiting me. I would call this an awakening as I felt much more conscious, more aware of the inner workings and tendencies of my very own mind. It took some time to allow the process to release a tenderness and depth of emotion I didn’t even know I had. I always sensed that working on myself would help me to help others. Furthermore, I believe that it is like this for all of us. When we heal our own conscious or unconscious hurt, it enhances in us a sense of wholeness, freedom and presence. What I love about this process is that it automatically is shared or transmitted. This clearer,

freer self will be conveyed automatically, in more or less subtle ways, to everyone we meet. If left unhealed, this present and transgenerational hurt will also influence our children. They will carry those limitations and pains, and will continue on passing them along, unless someone along the line puts a stop to it. Hypnosis is a gentle yet remarkable tool that I use to help my clients have a more balanced life. It is healing, and helps us build a strong base, an ability to deal with life’s challenges. Yet it is not the only modality, and I believe that all healing modalities have a place. Along with meditation, psychotherapy has a definite place. Family Constellation workshops are also helpful and quite remarkable. Note: On December 7th, Ester Diana Martinez is coming back to Ottawa. She is highly skilled and will offer a weekend workshop on Family Constellation, Our human journey is precious. May we make the most of it, and rejoin with our ability to live fully, and share love and wisdom with one and all. Lynne Cardinal sees clients individually in Hull and Stittsville. She also offers group classes and workshops. She offers Stress Management, Resilience and Burnout Prevention workshops in the government and private sectors, and has done so for over 30 years. She is a Consulting Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, holding additional certifications in Hypnosis Innovative Techniques and Weight Loss. She is certified by Dr. Weiss in Past-Life Regression and she has a PhD (alternative) in Eastern Philosophy from India.

Fast recovery from Post Concussion Syndrome

student came to the practice complaining about loss of focus, lack of endurance, anxiety and mood swings. These symptoms had started to develop 5 weeks prior, after bumping her head

M. Akbari & K. Khan, naturopaths & homeopaths against the metal frame of a bed. The immediate impact was not felt right away, but the next day she woke up with nausea and she vomited. Headaches ensued and the capacity to process information and cope with daily life started to decrease over the next few weeks: ”I have to do a lot of reading, but my potential of reading has grown less than before and it is growing worse every day. When it is time to concentrate I can’t be there. When someone tells me to do this or that I forget about it. And I can only read a short period of time. I have grown sensitive to lights and sounds and prefer to stay in a dark room at times. For weeks after the concussion, I did not go to school and just spent time in bed. Also, I have a lot of anxiety which uses up my energy and burns me constantly.” In such cases, homeopathy offers natural remedies that speed up the healing dramatically after head and brain injury. My patient received a potentized mineral salt, Natrium sulphuricum 30 C. The first few times she took it, she developed a slightly stronger headache, but felt each time a bit better afterwards. This is a typical healing reaction. In a follow-up I had with her 3 months later, she came with a big smile. The post concussion symptoms felt like a condition from way back in the past. She had completely recovered. In less than 2 weeks after taking the first dose, her headaches, sensitivity and anxiety were gone and her health was fully restored!

bundance from the perspective of just obtaining material gain is not true abundance. For when you see it in this way, you are lacking a big part of what abundance means in a life. Shifting your point of view or the way you are choosing to see abundance in your life can help you in shifting the abundance in every aspect of your life. Meaning that if you see abundance in every part of your life such as love, friendships, material gain, etc. as something that you welcome in your life, as something that you are willing to accept in your life, and have balance in, than you begin to see that abundance is everywhere and you begin to open up more and more those channels that support you in bringing it in.  It is important that you realize that in order to become abundant in every part of your life, that you open up to the frequency of love, that you open up your heart so that you can truly receive and give, balancing your energies every day. Being worthy of abundance is something that has to come from you. As it is a unique belief that you can activate or deactivate, that you can enhance or make disappear. Abundance is associated to how open your heart is, it is aligned to the beliefs of what you believe you are worthy of. 

Are you worthy of love? Yes you are, for you are love, for you are made of love. Are you worthy of having anything you want in your life? Yes for you have come to this world to experience through grace, love and joy. You have come here to find yourself in different ways and you are doing so right at this moment. So breathe deeply into your heart and exhale slowly, for all is well. May peace be with you. Monica Dumont is a Divine channel, healer, regression therapist and author.

The Power of Transformation and Healing through Family Constellation By Lynne Cardinal


ave you ever participated in a Family Constellation Workshop? Ester Diana Martinez is coming back to Ottawa this December for her 4th workshop here. Trust me, it is a very unique and amazing experience. Through these workshops, I have seen people get insights into their own personal dilemmas after years of struggling with them. From there a new paradigm can finally take place, a fresh new perspective based on wisdom, compassion and greater freedom. We all come to see that unconsciously – or consciously sometimes - we carry the frustrations of our parents, their fears and issues, and we just may be repeating their difficult relationship patterns. We are also influenced by our family further down the line, such as grandparents, uncles, etc. We do inherit not just physical patterns through our DNA, but also residues of traumas held in our family line. These workshops can help a new life course begin. The result can be life-changing. It is a deep and emotional experience, and it opens us to new possibilities. In Ester’s workshop, you will: • Learn how to identify the traumatic events and unconscious loyalties that can affect your health, relationships and success • Learn practices, visualizations, healing sentences and other tools that can help you disentangle from the cycle of generational suffering • Learn how to start breaking long-standing patterns of illness, depression, anxiety, fear and unhappiness Based on the work of German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger this workshop allows us to restore our connections and a sense of belonging to ourselves, our families, and our communities. Held at St Paul University, we will be in a supportive and comfortable environment. Ester is extremely skilled. As a psychotherapist and constellation facilitator, she holds a BA in International Relations, an MA in Humanities and a PhD in Philosophy and Ethics. She studied with Bert Hellinger for 10 years! She has also trained in other transformational modalities including Gestalt group work, Somatic body/mind work and Craniosacral and Body Therapy based on the Françoise Mezieres method. Ester has studied Zen Meditation with Roshi Kiunan Ana Maria Schluter for over 20 years and

Is it better to feel difficult feelings or to try not to dwell on them?


Open Lecture Discussions Saint Paul University

By Mary Anne Bourque, Pathwork Helper

233 Main St, follow signs to room


7:00 to 9:00 pm

ave you wondered if there could be something more to life than what you are now living? Maybe you are at a point where you feel there must be more than the rushing and daily routine. All the outer demands and expectations of family, work, and friends can leave you overwhelmed and feeling you have no time for you; no time to hear yourself. At the end of the day you are left feeling bad about yourself. What would you like to change? Often we look outside ourselves to answer this question - the job, the partner, the parents. This is an invitation to check in with yourself. As you listen into the voices inside, a key place to listen is under the ones that want to blame others for what is not going well. You will hear a voice of judgment towards yourself and at its side, fear that you are not good enough, not lovable enough. These are the very places we want to run away from. We do so, by trying harder to be good enough in all the ways we fear we aren’t. This is the very place where we are asked to soften into self-acceptance. At the next Pathwork Open Lecture on November 13/19, we will explore the conundrum that Pathwork Lecture 190 points out: “the acceptance of your hate will make you more loving, the acceptance of your weakness will make you stronger, the acceptance of your pain will allow you to be more blissful”. Such a paradox. In the lecture we are also encouraged to befriend this judgment and fear, with a desire to understand its purpose. “The capacity to own up to being fallible, human, vulnerable, irrational, wrong, needy, defenseless, weak, and

unhappy must, by necessity, increase your capacity to be strong, truly right and not self-righteous, truly independent and fulfilled. The admission of heretofore apparently inadmissible feelings is the bridge to inner unity and fulfilling self-expression of life “. In our evening together we will examine these concepts more closely along with a new understanding of our laziness or procrastination. “There is an intimate connection between the problem of laziness and feelings that have not been experienced.” We all have an amazing life force energy that is covered by stagnant feelings, the feelings we have suppressed. The Pathwork lectures describe tools that guide us to clearly see and help us express our blocked feelings. The real gift is that these blocked feelings also release a life force energy; energy that will be our source of living fully. Date and Time: Wednesday, November 13/19, 7 to 9 pm Location: Saint Paul University, 233 Main Street. Follow the signs to the room. Pathwork Lecture: 190- The Importance of Experiencing All Feelings, Including Fear – The Dynamic State of Laziness All are welcome. There is a suggested donation of $15 for nonmembers; $5 for members. For more information, contact Jean at jeanmillar21@ or 613-829-1254. For information about Pathwork, go to www.

Fight-Flight Mode:

Osiana Wellness

Why we’re stuck in it and how to get out


our heart beats fast. Your muscles are tense. Your stomach is upset. You worry and your thoughts race. You feel anxious, frustrated and overwhelmed. These are common signs that our bodies are in stress response, or Fight, Flight or Freeze mode. This state, where our sympathetic nervous system is working to get us out of danger, is only supposed to be short-term. But many of us live in this “crisis” mode most of our waking hours. Our nervous systems were not built to be in a chronic state of stress and it wreaks havoc on our health. While we have work, family and other responsibilities, chronic stress is also caused by the consumerist, capitalist economy. Capitalism instills the limiting beliefs that our value and our worth is based on money, the things we own and our productivity, even if it leads to exhaustion and illness. Being in a state of Fight or Flight is also often linked to past trauma including intergenerational trauma. Our addictions to work, shopping, food, substances or TV, phone or computer screens are also often rooted in trauma. Consumerism feeds off this trauma to get us to buy more and do more at the expense of our health and the planet. The parasympathetic nervous system, also known as the Rest and Digest state, allows our bodies to heal physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Here are a few tips on how to get in this state: Emma Lui

* Deep breathing and/or meditating * Exercise * Spend time in nature - 20 minutes significantly lowers stress hormone levels * Read a book - 6 minutes of reading can reduce stress levels by 68% * Work to heal trauma - unhealed trauma can keep our bodies in Fight-Flight-Freeze mode Self-care is important. But it is equally important to recreate a culture of community care so that we reconnect with each other and the earth. Our health and the health of the climate, water, land and communities are deeply interconnected. It is only when we have communities and an economy based on sustainability, equity and justice that we all can be healthy and whole. Emma Lui is a Craniosacral Therapy and ThetaHealing® practitioner who supports people working through stress, trauma and intergenerational trauma. She is also a water and social justice activist. Her practice, Osiana Wellness, is based in the Ottawa region, on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin Territory.

I am Luke Michael Howard, clinical hypnotist and owner of Lukenosis Hypnosis.


oday, I wanna answer a question that I get quite a lot actually over the last year or so. Is hypnosis good for children? And the answer is yes. Children, certainly below the age of five, are a little hypnosis machine, some people believe up to the age of five to seven. Until your conscious mind, your analytical, logical mind comes into play, we're all completely unconscious. I don't mean we're mindless zombies, I'm not calling your children mindless zombies, but as much as it's not a conscious thing that they're doing oftentimes with volition, at least to the age of five to seven, depending on what studies that you read. So hypnosis is very, very good with with children. Now, some of the changes that I make when working with children is... Typically, a session I'll work with an adult will be about 15 minutes in length. With a child, certainly below the age of 10, a session's generally about 25 to 30 minutes because of attention spans. So that's one of the caveats, one of the changes I make. When I do hypnosis with adults, it's always me and the adult in the room alone, so there's no transference of anyone else being in the rooms. We can do nice, clean work, of course, say, a loved one, a trusted person can be outside of the office door, absolutely. When it comes to me working with children, I like to have a parent in the room, a guardian of the child who's not talking, not participating in the process but is there in the room,

watching the process go along, so that the stuff that I'm teaching the child to do with their imagination, I'm also teaching you, the adult, the parent, the guardian of the child, so you can help to become their hypnotist and learn these skills for yourself because it will help you. And so those are some of the differences. Now oftentimes, people think, "Oh hypnosis, he's eyes closed and relaxation," and there's not a lot of kids that like to close their eyes and just completely relax their body so I have to utilize other skills, distraction skills, if you will, when working with children, hence why I have many tattoos and many different gimmicks going on. It seems to captivate young minds, which is awesome. Some of the pluses with working with children is they have amazing imaginations. If I say, "Hey, think of a blue chair," they're already there. Not like, "Well, I can't think, I don't visualize things inside my head." Children visualize, are hypnosis machines. It's just as we get older, we stop thinking that we're thinking and we start to think that it's real. And we stop using our imagination for good purposes and oftentimes use our imagination bad purposes. So working with children, they use their imagination all the time. They're daydreaming all the time. It's just about tapping into that, enabling them to daydream, to visualize, to imagine, to pretend of more what they want in their life, in spite of all the stuff they no longer want and no longer need to imagine, whether that be some kind of a trauma, whether that be some kind of anxiety, whether that be some kind of a sadness in their life.


You Can Lose Weight Without Painful Surgery Are you having trouble Losing Weight, Keeping it off & Killing Evil Cravings? Then Dr. Luke Michael Howard can help you even when nothing else has worked. With he's specialist brand of Gastric Band Weight Loss Hypnosis all the way from the UK. Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis, is a Hypnosis Weight Loss Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 17 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 over eaters into empowered, slim & in control people in just 5 sessions. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 80% success rate. This is incredible when you think that Weight Watchers are only about 30% successful at best. This Powerful Non-surgical procedure has been well documented or FOX,CBS & ABC News as well as the Dr Oz Show.


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


November 2019

“I walked out 25lbs Lighter!” Kate had been over weight for the majority of her life- nearly 27 YEARS! She had tried every type of Weight Loss Gimmick, Diets, Supplements, Gym Memberships even Personal Trainers but nothing worked, until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promised I would do a testimonial for you. Here it is: The hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I lost 25lbs I have not eaten at timmies...I have had NO DESIRE TOO!!! It really has changed my life!” Check out more testimonials at: you can contact Dr. Luke at 613-878-5874 to arrange an appointment.

Stick to your Diet Eat Low Carb Comfort Foods Pizzas





Our foods exclude: × Glutens × Grains × Pseudo-grains (amaranth, quinoa, millet, teff, sorghum etc.)

× Promalins × MSG, dyes and starchy fillers × Sugar × Trans fats × Baker’s yeast

So this is some of the differences between children and adults. Oftentimes times when I'm working with children, again, I'll have to utilize and change my techniques because if I say to my children, "Close your eyes and keep your eyes closed and we'll actually so much so that you cannot open your eyes," it might work really well for a while. But after a while, that kid, their mind goes off another tangent somewhere and they get distracted. So my job when working with children is to be the best shiny object in the room so I completely distract them from their old ways of being, enable them to go down a trance tunnel worth having more success in their life to be free of the ailment, the problem or what they came in with. So it's a certain different type of skills when working with children, but I've had amazing success in working with children, helping them to stop peeing the bed, stop experiencing chronic pain in certain areas of their bod,y and having night terrors and having to sleep with their parents all the time after the age of seven rather than go to their own beds. I've had amazing success in these areas but I had to fine tune the skills that I had as a hypnotist, realizing the way that we treat an adult and the way that I would treat a child and the imagination is very different. So hopefully that explains that yes, hypnosis is very, very good when working with children, some of the changes that I make when working with children and how amazingly effective it is.

Introduction to Unity: Principle #3


his is the third of five articles on the principles that shape our beliefs at Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa. The principles reflect the laws of the universe and apply to everyone, all the time. If you also share our beliefs in these universal principles, please come join us. All are welcome. Unity Principle #1 states that “God, or Spirit, the Universe, the Divine, is Absolute Good, everywhere present.” The second Principle takes this idea further, stating that we are the expression of the Divine in human form. Principle #3 says that human beings create their experiences by the activity of their thinking; everything in the manifest realm has its beginning in thought. Ellen Debenport, author of The Five Principles, notes as follows: “We are living in an ocean of love and abundance in which we cannot fail. We are ever connected to the Source of all things. We can tap into the power, wisdom and guidance of the Divine at any time.” Debenport continues “imagine yourself as a tuning fork. Your feelings in any given moment set up a vibrational tone. The Universe picks up your vibration and hums along, amplifying your sound. If you are vibrating with joy, you will experience more joy. If you are vibrating with misery, you will experience more misery.” Are you manifesting what you want in your life? If not, it may be time to get really clear about the vision you hold for your life, focus on raising your vibration and feeling tones and see what comes your way. For more information please see

Indigenous Ways

Ian Prattis hattered Earth: Approaching Extinction is my latest book. It is about the broken cycles of Climate Systems that place humanity in dire straits. It begins with a futuristic analysis of Climate Change and reveals how unready humanity is to encounter Climate Emergency. There are many global protest movements intended to motivate citizens, parliaments and industry to implement massive measures to ameliorate the impacts of Climate Emergency. However, powerful financial interests, the creators of Climate Change, will not allow their power and control to slip away. They are better organized than us and they control the wealth to usurp any coalition that threatens their power. Is there a future for our beautiful children and grandchildren? The Marshall Plan strategy used after World War 11 required a global effort to implement it. Something similar needs to be applied to Climate Crisis in the 21st century. However, given the nature of political leaders at this time it seems highly unlikely that similar steps will be taken. The denial of Climate Emergency by Presidents in the USA, Brazil and other nations, leaves the world bereft. The massive cooperation required to off-set the accelerating Climate Emergency has not appeared. What is left for us?

PART FOUR of this book draws on Indigenous Ways. My long encounter with Ancient Wisdom enabled my heart and mind to expand. I absorbed the significance of the Earth Mother and saw clearly how humanity neglected the basic respect for all that sustains us. Indigenous cycles of harvesting the Earth were based on an ethic of planning seven generations into the future. Such an ethic is not found in modern society. Indigenous wisdom the world over knows that protecting the Earth is primary to care for ourselves and all species. The era of Climate Crisis and Extinction is not a surprise to them. I was fortunate to encounter many First Nation storytellers across North America: Dene, Hopi, Ojibwa, Algonquin, Inuit – to mention a few. Their poetic recounting of myths and history had a deep impact on how I thought and wrote. I would say that without poetry, cultures implode. Through their mentoring, I learned how to reconfigure my understanding of time, place and consciousness. I chose to listen to the sacred feminine voice of Earth Wisdom rather than the multitude of competing voices in my deep unconscious. My approach to life comes through experience, crises, difficulties and joys that may have common ground with many readers. I was gifted with mentors in the desert, training with sages in ashrams in India and the Ancient Wisdom of Indigenous cultures. My intensive training in different traditions enabled me to better understand the processes of transformation. There was a lot of mud in my seasons, yet that mud provided the necessary compost to cultivate surprisingly accurate insights. Thus, I was able to anticipate the hard core of Extinction by first of all developing Impermanence. And just why do I – do we – need all of this? It is so we may emerge as the new leaders for the 21st century. I introduce Sacred Stalker in Chapter 10 and in Chapter 11: Medicine Mentors- my indigenous education. Chapter 12: The Transfer Particle is a futuristic story about Hopi mysticism for a new planet. Chapter 13: The Forest provides a short, sharp finale about my intentions. My new book should be out very soon. Ottawa friends are welcome to get a signed copy from me – the bonus with each purchase is a FREE copy of one of my prior books.

Darshan with Mother Meera

by Reza Shadman am delighted to announce that Mother Meera will be back in Ottawa on Dec 7th, 2019. This is Her second tour in Quebec and Ontario this year. It is also part of the anniversary of the 40 years of Her arrival in Canada and the USA. Its was in 1979 in Montreal, Quebec, where Mother offered Her first public Darshan to North American audience. Mother Meera is known to be an embodiment of the Divine Feminine. Her purpose is to help with humanity’s transformation and to that extent, She travels the world to spread Her light. It is truly with joy that we invite you to experience Darshan in Ottawa. Darshan is always free. Darshan is Mother’s unique way of offering Her blessing. It is the essence of Her work.


“The whole purpose of my work is in the calling down of the Paramatman Light and in helping people. For this I came – to open your hearts to the Light.” Mother Meera Guests can expect an inward experience. Darshan is offered in silence. There is no talk, only a silent blessing. Mother transmits her Light by looking into a person’s eyes and holding their temples. Our hall at the Hotel can comfortably seat 200 attendees. The guests are quietly guided to meet Mother face to face. A detailed explanation of Darshan is available at https://www. darshan/ “When humans sincerely aspire for happiness, harmony, peace, and light, then it is the Divine Mother who helps.” Mother Meera Some but not all guest experience an impression. Mother Meera says that the light we receive works on its own, whether we feel it or not. The first time I received Darshan I felt happy. Spring that year, out of

a great need, I prayed to Her continually and when things got better I forgot about Her. A few months later, during fall, a picture of Mother got my attention and I immediately knew She had been with me all along, in the background, helping. I realized I had been supported and held, even though I was not aware. Anyone’s sincere prayer for help, regardless of personal faith and belief, is answered. She is simply a Mother for all. is an excellent way to connect with Mother’s weekly meditations and blessings. We are looking for volunteers to join our team! The Ottawa-Gatineau crew strives to make Darshan a memorable event for our spiritual community and we need your help. Mother Meera Society is a nonprofit and 100% volunteer-based organization. We are expecting roughly 400 guests on Dec. 7th. There are many volunteers positions such as greeting, hosting, and setups. The major portion of the work is done on the weekend of the Darshan (Dec. 6th and 7th ). We also need help with putting up posters prior to the event. Please contact Reza at, or 6137940677 for more details.

The Art of Eden Energy Medicine


ow do we come home?  To ourselves, to our own power, to our own greatness?  How do we learn to own (and love) all that is within ourselves?  How do we stay on track with our lives in spite of the unexpected always bitting at our heels?  For me, my tools include Groundedness, Trust, Belief and Connection to my own creativity. Connection to others, in a deep, meaningful way. Connection to something greater (be it a tree, a rock, a god or goddess, an angel, a wise ancestor or Mother Earth). Truth be told, I lean heavily on Mother Earth. Sometimes it is she who carries me. Other times, it is a kind word from a wise friend or mentor. Sometimes it is my own inner wisdom that finally decides to rise to the surface and be heard. As an Eden Energy Medicine practitioner I would like to talk about the importance of groundedness. The trees get it. They understand that without their roots being deeply embedded and nourished by the soil’s gifts there would be no life.  As humans, we are the same. Energetically speaking, did you know that for women, the energy of our body comes from the earth? For men, it comes from above. For we females, our new fresh energy enters through our feet.  Hence the need to open these channels to recharge, stabilize and ground. Below are three easy ways to encourage groundedness. #1 Take off shoes and socks and walk barefoot on grass. #2 Find a stainless steel spoon (it must be a stainless steel spoon or this will not work) and with it draw figure 8s on the bottom of your feet.   #3 Stretch your feet by massaging them with your hands.   Twist them.   With gentle pressure, rub every nook and cranny of these precious extremeties.  Pull the energy off the toes and in between the webbing of the toes.   Now go outside (while we still can without freezing our feet off) and walk barefoot, soaking in earth’s nourishment. 


About feet:   Did you know that each foot has 26 bones?  And that there are more bones in your hands and feet than in the rest of your body?  And there are six meridians (lines of energy) that run through each hand and an additional 6 meridians that run through each foot. Three of the meridians that run through our feet are “grounding” meridians. What does that mean?   These meridians return to Earth our excess energy.   Today, many of us suffer from “excess” energy. Ideally a body sucks up energy (through the feet) to the top of the head and then melds with “sky” energy, and then returns to earth. This simple looping of energy, if working efficiently, allows us to metabolize and balance how we deal with those out-of-left-field happenings that grace our lives.  Grounding is not only our life force, it is an essential need. Within the work I do in my Creativity Mentorship Programme, my Eden Energy work focusses primarily helping the spirit of an individual to regain its momentum.  What ignites your spirit?  How do you stay connected to that spark?    For each of us the pathway is unique.  Yet, I believe, each one has a special gift to give to the world.  I simply help you on the path to find yours. Being grounded is part of our way home.  Helene Anne Fortin is a creative.    Her portrait studio is located in Wakefield Quebec where she loves to capture the spirit of her clients on film.  View that work at:   She equally loves to help empower others through her Eden Energy work, of which she is certified practitioner.   View that work at: or simply call: 819 459.2161.

What is the Medicine Wheel? Here is a short introduction – the tip of the iceberg – I have a word limit... The Medicine Wheel could be called the cover page to Indigenous Peoples’ cosmology. It has been around for over 2,000 years and put in place in approximately 500 BC. I propose to you that the Medicine Wheel is a moral compass, an owner’s manual on how to live life on Earth for all People! It is also known as the Wheel of Life, the Circle of Life, the Sacred Hoop and its teachings can also be found under the title of the Sacred Tree. As you can see, there are four equal quadrants to the Wheel. I have added my creative touch by placing a heart in the center. These colours represent the major human skin colours found on the Earth. There are no delineating lines between the colours, which indicates that we are all equal, one family sharing one home. White represents winter, the cardinal point North, the element Earth and the time of our senior years on Earth. It represents our physical aspect of being human. The power-animals assigned are Great White Buffalo/ Bison. Yellow represents new beginnings as we see in Spring and where the sun rises, the East. Its element is air. This is where our birth and childhood growth takes place. It represents the mental aspect of being human. The Eagle/Hawk sit here. Red represents the South, summer, water. We learn to expand our horizons as to what we want to do with our life and where we develop emotionally. Coyote/Wolf are the boss here.

Black is the one aspect of the Medicine Wheel that is misunderstood. But like all other colours, it is universal to every single human being on the Planet and has an equal share – most call it the spiritual aspect of being human. It is actually the sacred energy aspects of all of Life. This is where you find the language of the Soul and the understanding of soul/psychic gifts. Black represents the West, autumn, fire and its theme is introspection or self-analysis. This is a time where you establish yourself in Life. The power-animals here are Grizzly Bear/Cougar. There are seven moral teachings: Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility and Truth. It’s underlying themes are Unity, Balance, Harmony, Movement, Growth and Attunement. It is a path to self-mastery where the balance is obtained by including all aspects of Life, including learning from Mother Nature and all of its elements. Imagine, if we are spirits having a human, terrestrial experience, since we all come from the same Source, everything that was created is also a spirit having a terrestrial experience… everything has consciousness and deserves respect. My speciality is in the Spirit of the West – introspection, the language of the Soul, sacred energy healing and training. Reach out if I can be of service to you.

Boosting Immunity


he chilly air has arrived, the clocks have turned back and it’s that time of year where people start to get sick. Let’s talk about boosting your immunity so you can skip those unwell feelings! Your immune system is such an important part of your body, it is your system of defense against germs, bacteria and viruses. Antibodies and antitoxins of the immune system recognize these intruders and attack them using white blood cells. When this system is faced with a pathogen it has not built up defenses for it may translate into illness, or when this system is weakened from things like stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition or dehydration it becomes vulnerable to these foreign bodies. The immune system is made up of two systems; innate and adaptive. The innate immune system fights against general pathogens that enter the body, it is a non-specific immune response. The adaptive immune systems job is to fight against foreign invaders that the body has been in contact with before, a specific immune response (It remembers!). There are cells in your body called “killer T-cells” which are a form of white blood cells and their role is to find and attack cells that have been taken over by a virus – how neat is that! Now that you know how amazing your immune system is and how its sole purpose is to keep you healthy, here are ways to keep it well and strong. You can help your immune system help you! 1) Load the gut with healthy bacteria and its food, did you know they have to be fed?! Do this by increasing fermented foods, loaded with probiotics such as kombucha, kefir, sauerkraut and kimchi. Incorporate foods into your diet that contain inulin, also referred to as a prebiotic. Prebiotics are food for your healthy gut bacteria. You can find them in, Jerusalem artichokes, onions, asparagus, garlic and dandelion


greens. Remember: 70% of your immune system is wrapped around your gut, let’s keep it healthy! 2) Speaking of garlic, ever cut into one and wonder why it becomes sticky after a few moments? That is allicin. It’s a potent compound that is activated when garlic is cut up or chopped. It contains anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. Let your cut up garlic sit for a few moments to increase the allicin content then eat the garlic raw and reap the benefits! 3) Consume foods containing Zinc, it is an immune boosting element and helps to regulate immune response. You can find zinc in many foods, some great options are pumpkin seeds, legumes and whole grains. 4) Vitamin C is the superstar vitamin of the immune system. Many cells of the immune system store vitamin C and is needed to perform their tasks against pathogens. Boost up on your fruits and veggies, such as citrus, leafy greens, peppers, broccoli and tomatoes. 5) Eat foods high in Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin that can be found in nuts & seeds. It is full of antioxidants and helps the body combat infection. 6) Incorporating herbs such as echinacea, gold seal, and ginger are amazing for increasing immunity. 7) Reduce your sugar intake! Studies show 1 tsp of sugar can suppress the immune system for up to 5 hours, by putting your white blood cells into a temporary coma, preventing them from attacking pathogens. 8) Last but not least, we can’t forget the role of a whole foods diet and loads of water to keep your whole body feeling amazing and performing optimally. I hope this finds you well and inspired!

Pesi Shroff

he past thirteen years of my life have been filled with a wonderful array of events that have brought me to where I am today. Some were painful to live through while others were filled with joy. Regardless of their nature, these events are there to teach us something about ourselves and to help us develop new skills to assist us in living our lives on purpose. I can assure you that the hardest skill I have had to develop is that of my intuition. Through trial and error, I have come to realize that when you trust that “nudge” or that “feeling”, magic starts to fill your life. This happens because you are now “listening” to your “higher power”, your “guides”, who are constantly sending you messages. It’s through this connection that you are able of make the correct decisions to take you closer to your goals. It feels scary at first but through the element of trust, you are able to take the first step and start your journey and, over time, strengthen that connection with your guides and develop a powerful relationship with them. As you progress further, you will be able to access other skills to add to your toolbox. For me, that has meant that my psychic and mediumship abilities have now been fully “turned” on. This is an even more powerful skill which can be developed by each and every one of us. It is our birth right to dream big and go after our goals. However, it is your responsibility to get into alignment with your thoughts, your feelings and your actions to make this all happen. Your Intuition will be there along the way to act as your GPS. Trust your gut. Trust that feeling. Trust that nudge. Dare to Dream! Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute.

Reconciling Our Relationship with Mother by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapy and Ascension Healing


umanity’s had a conflicted relationship with our Divine Mother. We’ve needed her and refused her, been devoted to her and distorted her. With the macrocosm reflected in the microcosm, our experience with our birth mothers can be very similar. If we’re to truly reclaim our inner feminine in sacred balance, we must allow reconciliation with both. To either, our healing prayer could be so very much the same.

Dear Mother, I’ve missed your love when only you could comfort me. I missed your gentle touch, never imposing but waiting for my invitation. I hoped for you there, never belittling me for needing you, nearby when I did. I’ve refused your wisdom though I’ve been lost in the noise of my confusion: I didn’t care to hear what you could whisper to me in guidance, too afraid that you might speak the truth. I’ve blamed you for the growing pains of being your child, while silent about the blessings. From you I’ve been birthed, millions of your atoms eager to cocoon around my soul, that I may know you through my eyes, my voice, hands and heart. You’ve only asked me for my courage to be a presence with you, as our histories of being denied and wounded are twisted together in our bones, awaiting healing. So while I know you deeply, I’ve tried to be separate. I felt your care for me but also felt abandoned. I wanted you to recognize me but I faltered in my expression. I loved you and hated you. I cared for you and hurt you. And I’ve missed you. Forgive me Mother. I feel you now, and humbly witness how you too have suffered. In truth, we‘re eternally bound. I accept your gift to give me wings. Thank you. Only now can I know nurturing without condition. Now I AM my own comfort. Helping you return to sacred, inner balance by healing disharmony in your daily life. 20 yrs. intuitive counselling, energy education & multi-dimensional healing.

Exploring the Akashic Records

Your spiritual journey of healing, begins with a single breath and an open heart!


e are here on the earth plane, for a purpose that is both individual and collective. We humans have been given a unique gift, “access to the Akashic Records”, to reinvent our world and ourselves. An Akashic Records Consultation will take you on a journey of selfdiscovery. It will provide you with the tools to become empowered and the architect of your own life. So, you may ask what the goal is, of exploring your Akashic Records. For many of us, the goal is to truly become acquainted with our “soul”. To “know thyself”. To really know who you really are and what you are here on the earth plane to do; to figure out the patterns of self- limitation, that have kept you from fully realizing your inner beauty and creating a happy and fulfilled life for yourself.


In everyday life, we have the very real possibility of stepping into very emotional, uncomfortable, and stressful situations and believe it is our responsibility to clean it up. When this happens again and again … this is a very clear message, that we need to find out what is triggering all this confusion and turmoil in our lives. During an Akashic Records Consultation, you are not alone anymore. You will have the guidance, illumination and guidance of the Masters and Teachers at your disposal and the Lords of Akasha taking the journey with you. For this reason, you will now have, along with your personal commitment to spiritually heal yourself, the tools to bring about the complete resolution of all past events and bring all current issues to a place of total and unwavering peace. I invite you to enter a spiritual healing space of exploration, that will take you deep within yourself with endless possibilities, as you come to understand the Akashic Records. Namaste!

Human Being is a wonderful mystery, the more we know about this mystery the more we realize how little we know. “ The This only impels us to look further, to explore deeper, and to investigate in newer ways. It is a joy to know ourselves and others, to actualize more of our infinite possibilities, and to extend our humanity to it’s farthest horizons. ” - A.H. Almaas

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition:

Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal Do you seek harmony, health and community in your life? Wishing to experience a deeper relationship with nature and unseen realms? Are you called to a path of healing service? “The PMT apprenticeship has changed who I am to the core and given me the ability to navigate life with grace and purpose. Connecting to this lineage has healed parts of me that were disconnected or broken. It has given me words for truths that I have always instinctively KNOWN, and given me a community of family that understands the world in the same way. My path of service is clear and I feel empowered to follow it with joy, wisdom and support.” ~ Alaina H., Sebastopol, CA

This Apprenticeship has been carefully crafted to offer people from all walks of life a heartfelt initiation into the healing power and earth honoring ceremonial artistry of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT), as originated by world-renowned kamasqa curandero don Oscar Miro-Quesada. Inspired by the living soul which sustains the various ancient traditions of Peruvian Curanderismo, the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition maintains contemporary relevance in its dedication to compassionate personal and planetary transformation. Sanctioned by the PMT Lineage and by don Oscar, curandera and stellar teacher YOLA DUNNE is offering the PMT Apprenticeship in Chelsea, Québec with two alternative opportunities to attend Part One, The Call to Heal (see below). As a PMT sanctioned teacher, Yola draws on over 30 years of practice and experience in the healing arts. Her path began in 1993 in the Dür Bön Tradition, a pre-Buddhist shamanic tradition of Tibet where she assisted in many ceremonies. These profound experiences paved the way for her service as auxilia (ceremonial assistant) to don Oscar, and her deep apprenticeship in the living lineage of the PMT. Yola serves her community with a thriving private healing practice, ceremonial offerings, and workshops.
