The groundbreaking study that ushered in a new era of understanding


n 1903, a groundbreaking study1 was made on blind people. The study found that some people who were deprived of sight were still able to sense or perceive objects in the room in a way that defied scientific explanation. It was from this study that the term “Sixth Sense” originated to describe the ability people have to perceive information beyond the normal five senses. Now, after years of research, observation, testing, practice, and experience I’ve discovered there are actually 12 senses. Seven of these were lost over a century ago when this study did not go further in trying to understand and explain them. These 7 Lost Senses™2 are: 1. The Sense of Imagination—sometimes called the sixth sense, it links the physical and the non-physical senses 2. The Sense of Balance—calibrates our inner and outer worlds. It works together with the sense of imagination to create a bridge between the first and last five senses. 3. The Sense of Life—also called the sense of light and darkness, calibrates and observes the life force. It’s linked to and connected to but does not involve sight. Its symbolic attribute is the solar plexus, the third chakra. 4. The Sense of Voice—this sense is attuned to both the voice of soul, the voice of passion, and spiritual pain. It’s also related but not linked to sound. Its symbolic attribute is the throat, the fifth chakra. 5. The Sense of Movement—it corresponds to and is linked to smell; it has no boundaries. Its symbolic attribute is the root, the first chakra. 6. The Sense of Warmth—it is linked to touch and can be calibrated through color. Its symbolic attribute is the heart, the fourth chakra. 7. The Sense of Substance—the sense of mattering, the sense of soul; it is connected to taste. Its symbolic attribute is the sacral, the second chakra. These senses have been unconsciously used for thousands of years. These senses are what have helped psychic, mediums, energy healers, prophets, and shamans develop the abilities they have. If you’ve studied or worked with Reiki, Qi Gong, or any type of energy healing, you’ve been using these senses unconsciously. Which one of these 7 Lost Senses™ do you think you’re unconsciously using at work or in your life?

Bringing Grief out of the Shadows…

Grief – Healing Your Heart By Vonne Solís, Angel Therapy Practitioner®


he fourth principle of Divine Healing teaches that we must be willing to heal our heart first to effect change in the mind. I found no other way to begin healing my heart after the suicide of my daughter than to call on the angels for assistance. By working steadily with the Divine in many realms, I was able to slowly open myself up to the idea of giving and receiving love again, though the process took a long time. Trust rapidly leaves us in grief. If we can’t trust, we can’t love. To love we must be willing to display our vulnerabilities. When we are in pain our survival instinct kicks in and keeps us from showing all weakness. Weakness means failure. Losing a loved one reminds us of our failures in many ways, not just in those things we could have done better prior to the death of a loved one. In my book Divine Healing there are numerous exercises and meditations offered to help with pain transformation. Many of these invite you to work directly with the archangels. While too numerous to detail here, the roles of these angels are plentiful and available to us anytime. Angels, spirit guides and departed loved ones help us turn inward to tap into the power we have to heal through a change of heart – the gateway to love through forgiveness and acceptance. The following exercises can help you start the healing process today. 1. Regularly pay attention to your physical body in pain. Lying down with eyes closed, notice the areas that hurt the most (including breathing problems) and all feelings associated with that pain. Spend time with your thoughts and emotions as memories surface connected to the particular body part (don’t push yourself beyond what you can handle). Be willing to release all pain and discomfort to Archangel Raphael while envisioning an emerald green light spreading through your body. Ask Raphael to diffuse all darkness within, starting from your feet to the top of your head. Release

this toxic energy through the crown of your head, thanking Raphael for his assistance. 2. Regularly perform a life review. With eyes closed and feeling relaxed, ask Archangel Jeremiel to help you see what you are ready to release and willing to accept and forgive viewing different chapters of your life (include the present). Release your hold on all limiting and painful thoughts tying you to this experience by lovingly surrendering them to Jeremiel. Remember, it’s okay to love yourself. 3. To gain clarity in grief, close your eyes and imagine all the colours of the rainbow. Ask Archangel Raziel to your side to answers any questions you have. Listen carefully and write down what you “hear” without hesitation. Don’t doubt what you know to be the truth. Your heart contains all knowing of your true reason for being. It speaks to you through joyous and painful emotions. As a griever struggling with complicated issues, keep your daily goals simple and realistic as you allow yourself to heal. Set them based on where you are today, not on where you want to be down the road. Through a gentle approach, trust that your heart will beckon you to find all things that will lead you to feel happiness once again. For more information check out Divine Healing available at Chapters stores and online and The Power of Change on and as an e-book.

A Good Night’s Rest Will Keep You At Your Best

Judy Spence, ND(QC), RN rowth and tissue repair require nutrients plus quality sleep as well. We produce growth hormone when we sleep. To fall to sleep easily and deeply, do yoga at night because yoga breaths are calming and can help induce restful state. Do lymphatic body brushing (we sell body brushes and ‘how to’ DVDs). Simply move your hands in a light squeegee motion across your whole body as follows: repeat the same stroke in one area five times then move to the next section and stroke there 5 times and so on. Complete the whole as a circuit. Repeat the circuit three times. This count of five strokes repeated three times (15 count) moves you into the parasympathetic nervous system which is the sleep system. That is why you feel so relaxed and spent after a massage. You switch from the sympathetic (hunter/ gatherer) to the parasympathetic (digest/sleep) nervous system. Yoga, followed by an Epsom Salts bath in which you body brush should induce sleep. Many radio stations are devoted to spa music. Also find progressive muscle relaxation MP3s on the internet to induce a sleepy state. Your bedroom should be a safe, allergy and scent-free oasis, so train your pet to sleep not just off of your bed but out of your room. (Sometimes it is the owner who needs to be trained because they think their pet won’t be able to sleep away from them). Whining dogs and cats can be put into the kitchen and the door closed until they are trained to sleep outside your bedroom. Vacuum mattresses monthly. Control household moulds with ‘Concrobium Mold Control’ or bleaches. Natural products with ‘tannic acid’ break down dead dust mite bodies. Dust mite covers provide barriers on mattresses and pillows. Open window or add on an air-to-air heat exchanger onto your furnace system to assure fresh air in your bedroom oasis.


Make Your Bedroom A Safe Oasis. Your liver and your lungs will thank you. If these alone do not induce or keep you asleep, consider natural supplements as: 5HTP, melatonin, threonine, homeopathics and/or herbals. In days of old a child was given a glass of warm milk before bed. Milk provides serotonin, calcium and magnesium all which induce sleep. Wishing you the most pleasant of dreams …. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Judy Spence, RN, ND(QC), CH and Gerry Spence, P.Eng. MBA, TCM are advanced II and I NAET practitioners respectively at the NAET Clinics of Ottawa and Outaouais. They help patients enjoy proper, restorative, deep sleep using NAET, acupuncture, Hypnosis, lymphatic drainage, herbals and homeopathy. Visit or to book a consultation: 613-728-2579 in Ottawa; 819-661-1061 in Hull.

Switch to unscented laundry detergents and fabric softeners. Your body has to break down all the chemicals you breathe in or absorb from bed linens. The ENT/Lung meridian repairs itself from 3-5 am. It rests and repairs best if not taxed with allergy reactions to dusts, pets, mites and scents’.

Living Beyond Dark and Light: Polarities, Integration, and Synergy

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine Heart to Awaken the Deep Truth Within


t the time of writing this article it remained to be seen how things would unfold. With August’s very positive electromagnetic shift to access higher levels of Christ consciousness and changes to the masculine principle, we saw the amplification of the polarities and increased manipulation by the dark forces. It happens this way often, and this time we witnessed the escalation in Syria, which is located in a heavily infiltrated horizontal planetary grid that relates to the masculine principle. Many may not understand why drama and violence keep reoccurring in this area: it’s an armaggedon/9-11 enslavement program, and you have choice in it. The dark forces and Light are not at war. For starters, Light doesn’t war or manipulate. Secondly, darkness cannot hide in Eternal Light. Thirdly, even beyond the healing integration of polarities there is a synergy taking place – and this is where we are making strides. Every living thing is based in the natural laws of polarity here. Our physical expression is weighted in one polarity but every person’s energetic being holds both polarities; the right side of our body is the male principle and positively charged electron, while the female principle is the left side of our body and negatively charged proton. Therefore, like the planet, we are electro-magnetic. Both have value although they are not always balanced or honoured. The duality of Light and dark has been prevalent in the perception of our 3D reality and peppers our Earth language: right/wrong, black/white, good/bad, and positive/negative. Other variations of polarity archetype thoughtforms have also been implanted by service-to-self beings manipulating our planet to warp our self-perceptions in this matrix: victimizer/victim, predator/prey, master/slave, greater than/less than and important/insignificant. At the early stages of spiritual awakening the awareness of darkness and Light has value. Both Light and darkness are part of our direct experiences in coming to know the Self. To truly know one you must know the other; the absence of Light/joy/peace serves to inform the directional shift to Spirit, while Light is the source of illuminating ego’s illusions. The deeper you are willing to see into your darkness and heal, the more magnificently you radiate your Light. Yet, eventually we begin to recognize that bouncing back and forth between the polarities is cyclical and tiresome. Similarly, polarizing into the extremes of Light or dark and its various forms is also ineffective. Living in the extreme of the darkness can be debilitating as

ego structures are dead energy. Light is alive, but only seeing Light can be equally unhealthy because then one is in denial of the shadow. The latter is called spiritual bypass and it perpetuates an alignment with false Light. The ego personality will also create polarities of subpersonalities to cope with fears. For example, the good girl persona can be created to garner attention and approval by following the behaviour deemed right by her parents. But when the effort doesn’t yield its reward as hoped, and it becomes too unsatisfying or restrictive, the ego will create another persona such as the rebel, who just loves to defy authority. Both act out of fear that they will not get their needs met, and neither stands in their authentic power. Integration of the polarities brings about wholeness and neutrality…….

What is Hypnosis? “Hypnosis is a state of intense focused concentration, where peripheral distractions are minimized or excluded. It is a natural way of having access to the subconscious. It is a form of communication that harmonizes your conscious and subconscious minds. If properly used, it is a means of achieving more of the potential which we all possess.” - Dr. Brian Weiss It is important to understand how the conscious mind and subconscious mind work to comprehend hypnosis. The conscious mind manifests as our automatic tendencies and personality. It can be smart, but it can also be impulsive and illogic.




Right underneath this superficial mind is the subconscious or inner mind and it is extremely powerful. The subconscious mind easily helps you to achieve your deeper objectives, whether it is to be thin, happy, or confident. In fact, the subconscious is the real you and it contains the answers to your queries as well as your own deep wisdom. The greater part of your authentic self is right underneath the conscious level, below our awareness, and it has a great impact on our conscious acts, thoughts, and feelings. Through hypnosis, I help you to harmonize your conscious and subconscious minds. Hypnosis helps you to achieve more of your own potential when properly directed. Yet hypnosis is probably not what you expect it to be. In a hypnosis session your body and mind are very

relaxed, but you simultaneously experience alertness. You do hear everything and throughout the session you have full control. Let me explain some facts… Firstly, there is only one form of hypnosis. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis; and it is the easiest and most natural thing in the world. All I can ever be for you or anyone else is a gentle guide. If you allow me to be your guide, I’ll show you how to place yourself in a beautiful state of hypnosis, experiencing physical relaxation and mental alertness. And I’ll show you how to stay in that beautiful state until we’re finished our session. Hypnosis is a 100%-consent state fully controlled by you. Once your mind is clear and your objectives are set, which is done totally according to your wishes and ideas, then in very few sessions you can see remarkable results. Lynne Cardinal is a fully Certified 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 Therapy and she has a PhD in Eastern Philosophy. Lynne has been offering Stress Management and Burnout Prevention workshops at the government and private sector for over 30 years. Insurance receipts are available.

Feeling Emotionally Out of Control? Parent Your Inner Child Rev. Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, Cert. Spiritual Coach, Counsellor and Teacher


have been counselling for over twenty five years now and have studied and practiced many different therapeutic approaches. Each one of these has useful and not so helpful aspects with the exception of the inner child work which I consider flawless. This one approach, pioneered by Jean Houston and later John Bradshaw, has helped, not only myself, but every one of my clients who has embraced the work with the love and commitment required to heal the wounded child within. With this work life changes drastically for the better. Our world view is pretty well formed from the ages of 3 to 8. This world view determines how we relate to ourselves, our parents, our extended family, our friends, teachers, ministers, and other people of authority. How we are raised determines what value we place on being a male or female, a child, family member, on being a couple, parents, single or married. By age 8 we have it all pretty well figured out determined by what we observed in our family unit whether we were raised by our birth family, by extended family, by our adopted family or by others in foster care. We assume as children what we observe and how we are treated by our caregivers is correct and normal, because that is all we know. If it was not loving, respectful and supportive we do not blame our caregivers, but ourselves-- there must have been something wrong with us, we must not be lovable. And so we grow up feeling we are unlovable, unworthy, unappreciated and unsafe. To a child growing up without love, nurturance, encouragement and protection the world is not a safe place. It is not safe to speak up, to be seen, to be our real selves, not safe to venture out and take risks---- not safe period. Life and living is not safe and so we shut our true selves down and hide deep within where we hope no one can find us and hurt us any longer. We grow up through childhood, to adolescence and young adulthood and the child within, the little 4 or 5 year old who learned he or she was unlovable and unsafe, stays hidden deep within us. This hidden child is our subconscious mind and, believe me when I tell you, the subconscious mind runs the show. Everything in your life may appear to be going just fine until that moment when your inner child is threatened, made to feel unlovable, unworthy, unsupported or unappreciated, then watch out-----fireworks--- tantrums, rages, depression, acting out, any number of behaviours that a 2 to 5 year old might display, behaviours not expected in a healthy adult. This out of control behaviour results in shame, guilt, embarrassment and more self-hatred that feeds the already insecure, self-loathing inner child.


Abundant Life Coach Spiritual Counsellor Psychotherapist www. 613-236-8852 Insurance Receipts Available It is a vicious circle that can only be healed by having your adult healthy self reach out with love, compassion, respect and protection to raise your unhappy inner 4 or 5 year old. Until you do the work to heal your inner child your life will remain out of control. Most common behaviours of the wounded inner child are rage and addiction. Shyness, withdrawing to the point of isolation is another. There are so many ways our little person inside shows us he or she is demanding to be loved, valued and protected. I have developed my unique inner child therapy which worked hugely for me, 25 years ago, and has continued to help client after client to raise their inner child to grow up and integrate with their healthy adult. Result: an adult who no longer loses control, who loves, honours, values and respects him or herself; an adult who loves life and lives it fully, safe to be their true self. If you would like to talk to me to see if the inner child work is appropriate for you, do not hesitate to call me at 613-2368852 or email at I am a psychotherapist, coach, spiritual counsellor and teacher with a very eclectic practice-- no issue too big or too small.

What to do with Sadness? By Kerry Palframan RN


ost people do not like feeling sadness and I often hear them say “I want to get rid of it”. I tell you this is the last thing you want to do with sadness, as it is a noble, worthy emotion that has much to offer you. What could sadness possibly offer you? If offers you the opportunity to rejuvenate, release, and become grounded and more flexible. These are the beautiful gifts sadness offers you – if you allow it to be felt, honoured and accepted. I like to think of all my emotions as little kids. The ones I don’t like are the kids I’ve kicked out of the house. When I feel these emotions it’s like they are banging on the door asking to be let back in. For the most part our culture has taught us that certain emotions are negative and should be kept outside of the house. Now think of some child (literally) crying outside your door, huddled in the rain and crying. Would you seriously not open the door and comfort this sad wet child? Most of you would, for most of you have compassion and empathy for others. What I’m suggesting here is that you start having compassion and empathy for your own crying, wet, sad feelings. See it as a little kid, detached from the adult you, and open the door and begin a dialogue with your sad emotions. When you feel sad, simply pop into your own inner reality and talk to yourself. Say hello to the sadness (it will be shocked that you are addressing it at all!) begin a dialogue with it. Comfort it and find out what it needs and meet those needs. If you go into the mind chat of “I’m just making all this up” then just be aware of this inner argument. Yes you are making it up (the answers you posed to the sadness), but you are also making your whole life up – I’m just suggesting you get more aware or conscious of what you are making up! When I sit in my sadness, it feels like sitting in a deep well of clear refreshing water. And this fills me up and makes me feel better. I have more energy when I allow sadness into my house, rather than expending energy trying to keep the door closed. When you release, it restores the flow of the waters of your system. Think of your chakra system like a river or stream - what you call blockages are actually boulders in the stream and every time you release or remove a boulder (sadness expressed), then the waters can flow more easily. Tears may be shed and this is helpful to the restoration process. However, it is imperative that you be mindful of the way you talk to yourself as you cry. If you are critical, harsh or negative (which is how most people are programmed to be when sadness surfaces) then that will only make your sadness feel worse and lead you into despair or despondency.

Visit Kerry’s new website for a free mp3 guided meditation journey and her store for other journeys; video and audio workshops; articles; her book and more. Listen to your thoughts as your sadness emerges. Do you say “oh for goodness sakes, there’s the horrid sad feeling again – I hate it”. Imagine telling the sad child outside your door that you hate it and go away. Instead, when you feel sad say something like “oh there you are my little beloved. You feel sad - let me hold you and I will cry with you. Let me grab some tissues and we’ll cry together”. You may also wish to apologize to your sadness and ask for its forgiveness for ignoring it for so long - for you were innocent in that you did not know how to talk with your sadness. Also ask your sadness the allimportant questions; “what needs to be mourned” and “what must be released”? Then create an answer – give voice to the sad character living inside you and you will soon feel refreshed and revived. Now off you go to enjoy your sadness and welcome it back into your house. When you can truly let go, rejuvenation and relaxation will surely follow.

They absorb everything like sponges and are so grateful, enthusiastic and happy to express themselves in their special way. You may wonder what is unique about our training program? We use a creative, multidimensional approach which calls the teacher to do a class from a child’s view of the world and not the adult view. Be prepared to jump into the experience, be in the abyss, to provide a spontaneous class with innocence, joy and fun. Children respond to a creative approach as this is their nature. Children naturally tap into the flow of yoga as not yet affected by various types of authority, cultural & other society expectations that break their spontaneous expression. They love the sense of adventure & are easily engaged with a yoga class where the teacher uses a theme, various props, music, art, meditation, stories etc. within the format of a yoga class (Kundalini & Hatha Yoga). Teaching yoga to children is a way to re-connect with you authentic self and to your own unique voice. Club Yoga brings you various music/voice tools to discover this voice. It requires you to draw upon the energy of the children, to trust your own unique expression to deliver a dynamic, rich and flowing class. This requires the teacher to be present and open to co-creating a class with the children. This training is for parents, yoga teachers, educators and anyone who loves teaching children. You will experience joy, gratitude and humility for having helped open a space for children to excel and be in touch with their true nature.

ets, talk about an enlightened beings! For those of us that have had the pleasure of having a pet in their lives, I’m sure you’d agree. I’d like to believe that these furry little masters made the decision to come to us because they knew that we were in need of some interesting life lessons. They certainly know about non-judgement, how to have fun and talk about compassion – wow! They’ve got to have an endless supply. Perhaps after they’ve accomplished all they could for us they choose to move on physically and spiritually to connect and help the next student in need. By the time this article is published my dear furry companion of 17 ½ years will have parted ways with me. I am eternally grateful for all the comfort and many lessons I’ve gained from our relationship. Patience, compassion and joyful living in the present moment are just a few of them. I certainly will miss the happy greeting I received each time I returned home, whether I had just put out the garbage or put in many hours at the office. Can you just imagine if we all tried to be a dog, just for a day? I’ll bet we’d have one of the best days of our lives. Meeting and greeting everyone and everything without judgement, looking at it as if it’s all a new experience – yippee, someone new to play with. I’ll try to remind myself to be more like him when I meet with old friends, new people or even the ones I take for granted. It really is so much more fun to live life with a sense of joy and excitement. This is one of the many lessons I’ll take from my gifted master. Loving, accepting and non-judgemental – a few attributes we can all use a little more of. My little Percy has taught me well and now he deserves a rest – perhaps he’ll be playing with all of his friends in a heavenly garden full of toys and love. No matter what, I’m sure he’ll be feeling my love for him wherever he is. And, every time I am living in the present joyfully, I’ll picture him spinning in circles and wagging his tail knowing he did a good job! I hope you are able to take a moment or two to show your little (or big) companion how much you appreciate their presence in your life. In memory of Percy a loyal friend and a great teacher.

Can’t Heal What You Can’t Feel By Kelly Sullivan Walden, co-author of Dreaming Heaven


n the Plaza affectionately known as “Hell” I was instructed to pick up a few objects (stones, twigs, weeds, etc…) that symbolized the things, thoughts, beliefs, and memories that have kept me in hell. At first I couldn’t think of anything, so I just walked around in a daze. And then, out of nowhere, a pointy black rock spoke to me, “I’m the boy in sixth grade that broke your heart.” A curved twig yelled, “I’m your twisted ideal relationship you keep trying to live up to.” A gnarled bunch of dead grass hollered, “I’m your awards and accomplishments.” A sandy brown speckled pebble whispered, “I’m the baby you think you are supposed to have, but never quite make the time for.” A cluster of jagged grey rocks chided, “We’re the girls/women who you thought were your BFFs who cut you down the moment you turned your back.” This went on and on as I bumbled along though the plaza, my heart more tenderized with each step. I was reassured by the adage, “You can’t heal what you can’t feel,” because I was feeeeeeling all of these attachments. By the time I reached the “Island of Safety” (a temple in the center of hell), I had both hands overflowing with all the (literal and figurative) sticks and stones that had weighed me down in my life...and I was ready, willing,

Build Confidence With Daily Affirmations


o you suffer from low self-esteem? When something negative happens in your life, do you beat yourself up about it again and again? Focusing on phrases such as: “That was stupid,” “I am so fat,” “No one loves me,” and many more other negative statements can easily zap the happiness right out of your life. Luckily, this doesn’t have to be permanent. Positive affirmations can turn your negativity around. Affirmations are simply statements or phrases, which focus on the positive rather than the negative. These mantras can actually reprogram your subconscious thinking and bring you a plethora of good benefits that you’ll enjoy for years to come! Here are some easy ways to incorporate positive affirmations into your life: 1. Affirmations should always be in the present tense. Begin your statements with “I can” “I have” or “I am,” instead of a phrase like “I will” or “I may.” • Examples of this would be “I have a beautiful body” and “I am so intelligent,” instead of “I will never be so stupid again.” • Choose statements that focus on the positive attributes you want to encourage, saying them as if you already exhibit that behavior. 2. Address yourself by name when expressing your affirmations. Believe it or not, this does make a big difference. When you say: “I, Jane Doe, am a beautiful person both inside and out,” it makes your affirmation more powerful because you hear the lovely sound of your own name! • Using your name in the affirmations allows your subconscious to process the words even quicker. 3. Focus on one or two affirmations to start with. Although you possess many positive attributes, it’s best to focus only on one or two when you’re first starting out. If you start with twenty positive affirmations, your subconscious may be overwhelmed or dismiss the deeper meaning. • For example, if you meet someone who goes on and on about how great and beautiful you are, what’s your reaction? Usually after the second or third compliment, you tend to wonder if this person is actually being sincere! The same principal applies to practising too many affirmations at once. • Focus on one or two, and when they’re firmly planted into your subconscious, you can move on to more.


4. Practice your affirmations as often as possible. Our subconscious mind is more open to suggestions when we first open our eyes in the morning and then again when we’re ready to fall asleep at night. • The more often you recite your affirmations, the faster you’ll experience lasting changes. 5. Don’t fret if you’re having trouble writing your affirmations. There are many books and selfimprovement websites that include hundreds of good, daily affirmations. You can then pick out one or two that you’d like to focus on and get started. • Don’t let something as insignificant as not being able to compose a positive mantra hold you back from making changes and incorporating happiness into your life! Low self-esteem is something that holds us back from living the life we deserve. You can rebuild your confidence and self-esteem with daily affirmations and experience the joy of life you’ve been missing. Try it and you’ll love it!

hen I was first training as a mediator, back in the 1970’s, a certain video was in common use as a training tool. In it a professional mediator demonstrated the “proper” way to react when one of the parties started crying. “It is important at the first sign of tears to gently stop the mediation process, offer the person some Kleenex, and invite them, in a kind way, to step out of the mediation room until they can compose themselves.” I have never understood this response to crying in mediation. It seemed to me that by stopping the process I would be sending a message to the crying person that tears were not an acceptable part of the process. No matter how kindly I responded, the fact that I was, in effect, banishing them from the room until they could “compose” themselves, missed the point. For me, crying is not a sign to stop, but rather a sign to keep talking, if that is possible and if the person who is crying wants to do it. Crying opens the door to empathy, and no authentic resolution can be reached without empathy. Since separation disputes are not usually settled at the intellectual level, but rather at the emotional level, crying can be an important part of the process. When someone starts to cry in mediation I do the following: 1. Normalize the tears. A simple statement like, “This makes you feel sad” can be all that it takes. I always have a box of Kleenex on the mediation table, and sometimes I just smile and say that it’s there for a reason, that people often cry in mediation, that I buy Kleenex in bulk and deduct it as a business expense. Or, I say a bit ruefully, “Remember when I said at the beginning of mediation that separations are only 10% legal, and 90% emotional?” 2. Invite a conversation about the tears. I always try to incorporate the tears into the mediation discussion, if at all possible. Far from being a signal to temporarily stop the mediation while the person “composes” himself or herself, I try to use the crying as a springboard to a deeper discussion. “I notice your tears came when you were talking about your children living just half the time with you. It’s understandable that makes you sad. Do you want to say anything else about that?” 3. Ask the other person if they want to react to the tears. It is important to carefully gauge the other person’s reactions to the tears. Is he or she moved by a genuine expression of emotion, or are they acutely uncomfortable? I have seen one person’s tears lead to a breakthrough moment in mediation, where the other person responds empathetically, with a touch to the hand or even a hug. Afterwards, the parties seemed connected at a deeper level, were able to

If the other person cannot respond empathetically, I may simply ask, “Do you want to say anything about what is happening now?” If that person is still uncomfortable responding, I simply say that I think something important has occurred that they might want to reflect on before the next session and then I move on. I never force either person to talk about the crying if they aren’t comfortable doing so and take my cue from them as to when it is time to move on. It is important that they, not I, determine when this is. 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.

Avoid Pharmaceutical Drug Propaganda: Taking Psychoactive Drugs is Buying into a Big Lie…A Really Big Lie.


y the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed. Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it. ~ Adolf Hitler

Decades after WWII, the creation of an entire North American population hooked on medication, tortured to their graves, more ill and distressed then they ever dreamt was possible, is indeed the reality. Studies are showing that children, for the first time in history, can be expected to live SHORTER lives than their parents! And we can safely add - a more distressing, illness-focused life as well. Vaccination and psychiatric drugging starts in children as young as 6 months old! Some children drink toxic fluoridated drinking water every day of their lives. Pharmaceutical companies are now cunningly conditioning people to accept that the ‘last 10 years of their lives will be spent in illness”. We now see the medical/ pharmaceutical complex stoking the fires of ‘discussion’ about the right to die, while most people

have not realized their situation was caused entirely by corporate greed. We die prematurely, not of contagious diseases, but of medication-induced, totally avoidable illnesses on the say-so of doctors. Recently released results by Canadian researchers studying the outcomes of thousands of Canadian children prescribed psychiatric drugs show clearly that the experiment of ‘improving’ our kids and their school performance using Big Pharma drugs has been a horrific failure on many levels. Not only has school performance worsened, but family relationships have been decimated and the children burdened with catastrophic illnesses including heart issues, sterility, infertility and brain disorders are epidemic levels. Many are disabled for life, reduced to living with their parents as adults. The pushers of this ‘experiment’, the childhood education innovators are long gone, busy with other experiments that use children as disposable guinea pigs. Now that some of the public is catching on, Big Pharma is switching gears and telling really, really big lies about the role of genes in illness. Commenting on, Russ Sherwood (Apr 21/13), a trained physicist and chemist stated: “FRAUD is the standard today in every industry and branch of science.” Academic doctors position themselves as ‘opinion leaders’ and sell the power of their degrees to the highest paying pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Society is getting sicker…don’t be part of a sick society. Natural, healthy resolutions of all issues, mental and physical, have been around for thousands of years. Humans have become stronger - until the last 75 years that is, when pharmaceutical companies and biotechs such as Monsanto took over control of our governments, mainstream media and the public’s common sense though prostitution of science and wholesale fraud. Illness-free lives start with the avoidance of all unhealthy processed food, GMOs, pharmaceutical drugs, vaccinations, antibiotics, fluoridated tap water, psychiatric drugs and unnecessary surgery. For drug-free, label-free assistance with all emotional/mental issues, including depression, anxiety, fears, addictions, PTSD and unwanted habits, consider seeking the assistance of a qualified regression hypnotherapist first. Qualified hypnotherapy treatment includes assisting clients to heal from their original underlying emotional issues and providing the resources needed to wean off harmful medications safely.

RYAN’S LEGACY How to Survive the Loss of Your Loved One by J.J. Southwell

After the loss of her son, J.J. followed her thirst for information on the afterlife (Heaven), reincarnation and past lives. She received Reiki (hands-on energy healing) treatments and subsequently became a Reiki Master/Teacher so she could treat others. J.J. also practiced angel card therapy daily daily for herself and others if they were interested. While visiting four psychic mediums and a tarot card reader, J.J. “spoke” to her son receiving amazingly accurate information from him and other spirits that helped her with her healing.

Why Do I Feel This Way? Conversations It’s Not un down, tired, and stressed out, no energy, week in and week out? When I am at work and in my home and in my car. But when I am out in nature my energy feels very good and different. It’s like my spirit gets to soar like an eagle.

Doctors can’t find the answer for you all they end up doing is giving you more drugs to mask the symptoms. You end up on a merry go round of feel sick, feel good and feel sick. The signs are all around us, wi-fi, smart technology, cell phones, laptops and tablets every where you go, Tim’s for coffee, restaurants, the gym on the busses and in your car. It’s all called “ELECTROPOLLUTION” The new silent killer disease of the 21st century. We are surrounded by this 24/7 365 days each year. More frequencies are been added each and every day. There is no hiding from this invasion on our bodies and our minds. It also pollutes all plants and animals. When our bodies are been attacked daily, we do not have the chance to heal and get on a better path to wellness. Researchers have correlated electropollution with increase in cancer, depression, learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s and autism. The danger is real and with increasing use of electricity in our environment it is one of the reasons why many scientist believe that some disease are on the rise. Remember that EMF’s are not blocked by trees, walls, buildings and other structures. Like x-rays they pass through these objects and into our bodies, disrupting normal cellular function and biological process. We have developed the products that will keep you and your family protected in this sea of pollution. Developed by Peter Webb who has been working on this problem for over thirty years?

Worth Having (Part 4)) By Marlene and Bob Neufeld

In the May, June and September issues of TONE magazine, we wrote about three of the conversations we recommend people not put energy into; i.e. “Who said what.” “Why did you do that?” and “Who is right?” For a copy of those articles go to www.marleneandbob. com/articles.htm. Another conversation we recommend you avoid if you want to feel closer to your partner and have more fun together is focusing on whether what your partner is saying is accurate or exaggerated.

Many times people in our office get side-tracked into conversations which sound something like this: Partner one: on Tuesday you … (e.g. were talking to your mother about me) Partner two: it wasn’t Tuesday, it was Wednesday Or: Partner one: you never … (e.g. put your dishes away after breakfast). Partner two: Yes, I do, last week on Saturday I not only put them away, I also put yours away. We invite you to accept that when your partner feels strongly about something he or she will likely be inaccurate and/or exaggerate the facts. Focusing on the inaccuracies or exaggerations is a red herring and results in two frustrated people. Pointing out the inaccuracies or exaggerations won’t help you receive your partner’s feelings. Instead of jumping in and cutting your partner off in order to respond, it is wonderful if you can hear with your heart and contain your own emotions until your partner is finished. This requires a willingness to sit with your own feelings long enough for your partner to fully express all that he or she is feeling.

You can simply reflect back what you are hearing, e.g. “I hear that when I was talking to my mother about you, you…” or “I hear that you believe that I never put your dishes away after breakfast.” Or, if you find that impossible to do, you can say “I am having trouble hearing what you are saying because I want to point out your exaggeration or inaccuracy, can we start this conversation again?” There are lots of great conversations that can assist you in feeling closer to each other. Arguing with your partner about inaccuracies or exaggerations isn’t one of them. Contact us if you want to know about the kinds of conversations we have found helpful.

Yoga can help your money habits: the root chakra (part one)


oga and money sounds like an unlikely mix. But if you constantly make spending decisions that get in the way of a manageable, enjoyable life—anything from buying an expensive gift that you can’t afford to the “creep” of small purchases that become big debt— then you and your money are out of balance. The ancient Sanskrit term yoga literally means “to unite” and to “to control.” The different yoga disciplines are all designed to create a union between the mind, body, and spirit. Money problems are common when these three areas are out of balance. A healthy financial attitude is not about an excessive attachment to money, and nor does it require a vow of poverty. At either end of the spectrum, you still put more energy into thinking about money than into the relationships and actions that create your true happiness. Yoga asanas combine meditation with physical postures designed to balance the body’s energy centers (called chakras). Each chakra is associated with different aspects of emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. While many people sign up for a yoga class in search of physical health, the mental and emotional benefits soon become obvious. The power of yoga to harmonize the “wheel” of energy circuits gives the physical and mental strength required to make the tough changes in your attitude and actions around money. The Root (Muladhara) chakra, at the base of the spine, regulates self-preservation instincts. If the habit of overspending makes it tough to pay rent, utility bills, or buy groceries -- the Root chakra is out of balance. The shopping buzz plunges quickly into guilty worry leading to another feel-good splurge and more debt -- until the anxiety is almost unbearable. When the Root chakra is balanced, you have the stability to meet your basic needs and enjoy luxuries from a position of financial health. The Mountain and Yoga Squat asanas align and open the energy of the Root chakra. Practicing these poses grounds you, enabling you to begin the most basic (and hated) element of money sanity—the budget. Part 2 of this article shows how to easily create and stick to a budget.

Why All Humans Should Be More Spiritual

A Way out of the Desert By Mary Anne Buchowski


ne of the most beloved images in A Course in Miracles is that of the “little garden,” a garden of love, an oasis in the middle of the desert. The desert the Course talks about is primarily mental, emotional, and spiritual more than physical. It is a place in which we live, “lonely little kingdoms,” self-contained, separate and apart from one another, yearning for love and joy, but feeling lost and experiencing a sense of emptiness and loneliness––something missing. (Even if we have a home and relationships, we may still feel lonely and homeless inside.) It is a world in which we harbour grievances, anger, and resentment––and they are what actually turn our world into a desert, devoid not of water, but of life-sustaining love. To some degree or other, we all live in this desert.

Introduction to A Course in Miracles The modern spiritual classic, A Course in Miracles, appears in the writings of spiritual teachers such as Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and Gerald Jampolsky, who founded Attitudinal Healing based on the Course’s principles. But what is it? This introductory course will provide a solid foundation for understanding this immensely practical path of spiritual awakening, focusing on A Course in Miracles’ radically transformative teachings on love, forgiveness, miracles, inner peace, and healing––and their powerful effect on our lives and the lives of others. Offered by Course Oasis a registered charitable organization dedicated to A Course in Miracles. 6 Sunday evenings Nov. 10 – Dec. 15, 6:30-9:00 p.m. For more information about this course and other activities, contact Mary Anne Buchowski 613-726-0195 ~ This course was sent to open up the path of light to us, and teach us, step by step, how to return to the eternal Self we thought we lost. –– A Course in Miracles

A Course in Miracles offers us a way out of the desert. That way out––sometimes described as a “path of light”––is love and forgiveness. At some point, one person (or more often, two people) decides to let go of their anger and grievances, and choose to see things differently and forgive. What they have really chosen is love over fear, peace over conflict, and joy over pain. This choice to let love in––and out––calls forth a miracle, which brings about a healing, transforming their feeling of separation into one of joining and oneness. This transformation brings feelings of love and joy that can’t be contained but naturally spread to others through the expression of acts of loving kindness, which the Course calls “miracles.” Out of the love and forgiveness springs a little garden, an oasis in the desert. Those who wander wearily in this desert are welcomed into the oasis, where they find healing and where their whole experience is transformed. This miracle of healing, the love that is present, is so powerful that it also transforms the barren desert––our inner world and our outer world––into a garden of peace and love. A Course in Miracles takes us step by step out of the desert of our existence and teaches us an entirely different way of living––a way based on each one of us becoming an oasis of love and forgiveness in a love-thirsty world, starting in our relationships. Course Oasis (a Course teaching centre and not-for-profit organization) was founded with the purpose of being such an oasis, a garden of peace and welcome, to which people could come and drink of the living waters offered by A Course in Miracles and learn to walk its path of light.

Autumn and Chinese Medicine By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac.


here is a slight nip in the air. The days are starting to get shorter. And just as the squirrels have gotten down to the business of storing nuts for the winter, we find ourselves a little more serious and less carefree than in summer. Whether you’re preparing for school or preparing for a new business venture, you know that Fall has arrived. Fall is the beginning of the yin cycle when the daylight lasts less than twelve hours. It’s a time of harvest when we gather the colorful fruits and vegetables for winter storage. Pumpkins and squashes are our symbols of bounty. We also store wood for the fire and get out our warm clothes for the colder, darker days of winter. According to Oriental medicine, the season of autumn is associated with the element of Metal, which governs organization, order, communication, the mind, setting limits, and protecting boundaries. It’s a good time to finish projects that you began in spring and summer – harvesting the bounty of your hard work. Of course, it’s also the perfect time to begin more introspective, indoor projects. During the summer, which is ruled by the Fire element, we deal more with the external – traveling and playing outdoors. Fall, on the other hand, is a time of organizing your life for the winter season ahead and coming more inside your body and mind to reflect on your life. The lung and large intestine are the internal organs related to Fall and the Metal element. Lung is associated with the emotion of “letting go.” This process is difficult for those who love the summer. They find it hard to give up the long days of sunlight, warm temperatures, and open windows. Others feel differently and love autumn, from the crisper air to the vivid red, orange, and yellow leaves on the trees. If letting go of summer is hard for you, extra support from your licensed acupuncturist may be in order to help you make the transition. That’s right…acupuncture works on releasing emotional issues as well as physical ones. Lung is considered by Oriental medicine to be the “tender organ.” This is because the lung is the uppermost organ in the body and especially susceptible to wind and cold. During the change in temperature, be sure to dress for the weather! I see too many people still dressed for summer at the beginning of autumn, which is an open invitation for coughs, sore throats, and the common cold. The lungs control the circulation of the Wei-Qi, which is the defensive Qi that protects you from the invasion of flu and colds. The Wei-Qi circulates on the surface between the skin and muscles and works to warm the body. If the Wei-Qi is weak, the skin and muscles will not be warmed properly. This is why people tend to

feel cold when they’re sick. A weakness in the lungs can lead to a weakness in the Wei-Qi, making a person prone to frequent colds. The nose is the opening to the lungs, and you can prevent colds by keeping your nose and sinuses clean and clear. Using a netti pot with some sea salt and water helps rid the nose of excess mucus.

A Language of the Soul:

Images, Imagination, Intuition


magine a picture is worth a 1000 words. Images and symbols can help make sense of the world around us. Have you ever entered a foreign land? With no understanding of the local language, and yet through the discovery of symbols on display, you are supported in finding your way. SoulCollage® is an easy creative process that uses images to develop your intuition and ability to hear the true voice of your Soul. It helps provide guidance from Spirit in a concrete manner. Join in the fun of creating and reading cards on your own or with others. Gather images from magazines, calendars, or use your own photos. Keep in mind, each SoulCollage® card represents only one essence (neter energy) or theme (one aspect of personality, etc). A SoulCollage® Deck is the Story of You: “It is a tangible way to know yourself in your diversity and depth, and also to show yourself to others. In like-spirited groups, you can share cards and work with them in many sacred ways. You can consult them intuitively and discover wisdom within yourself which will amaze you. Besides all this, creating them is just plain fun! You will love your deck -- a multi-card Mirror of your Self and your Soul -- whether it consists of three cards or a hundred.” ~ Seena B. Frost, founder. SoulCollage® cards can bring forth an understanding of the dynamics at play in challenging situations at home or at work. In learning to dialogue with the cards they can be used to provide input and direction in setting goals and intentions. They can also be a tool to help make decisions and identify opportunities. The gift of developing a language and conversation with Soul is the discovery and expression of one’s unique potential, truth and inner wisdom.

Cult of Anxiety


he last couple of weeks have been challenging, as growth and transition often is. The shift has inspired a consideration: “Where do you turn when there’s nothing left to distract you?” If the cable is gone and the Internet is down and that gut-wrenching, free-floating anxiety sinks it’s teeth in, where do you seek for solace? Most of us have experienced this feeling at one point or another in our lives. Some more than others. Some are living it now, reflecting on unfulfilled expectations or still caught in the desire for more. Some of us will skim along the surface until the very end, the brink of the pond reaches the abyss and we’re caught on the edge, looking over. Then what. In his book Lighting the Flame of Awareness, David Frawley writes: It’s no wonder that we are anxious . . . We are always trying to figure things out, to plan and control them, to make them go our way or to bring us what we want. The very action of thought must result in anxiety because life is beyond our control. Even when we succeed in getting what we want, we find that it is really not what we thought it would be (31). Can you relate? Frawley’s solution is meditation. Only in connecting with one’s true state of being will the nostalgia and anticipation subside. Only then can we experience the peace and contentment that are the biproduct of living in the moment. In practical terms, when anxious, try the following: 1. Pause for a moment and breathe. Inhale for a count of four and exhale for a count of four. It’s impossible to be anxious while breathing deeply. 2. Call to mind three things that make you smile. Better yet, write them down. This will shift your thinking from worry to gratitude. Always a good transition. 3. Call a friend. In a time when communication is most often via technological devises, we can tend to feel isolated or alone. Just connecting with a voice can make all the difference in dissolving that illusion.

PATRICIA V. LACROIX, Psychic Medium, Empath, Intuitive Energy Therapist, Reiki Master, Certified Hypnotherapist. Akasha is the fundamental energy at the very core of creation. All that is created emanates from and returns to the energy of the Akasha. Held within the Akasha are the individual records of each soul from the time it leaves its point of origin until its return. Every thought, word, deed and intent generated by each soul’s experience is recorded within the Akasha in one’s personal Akashic Records as well as in a collective recording of the experience. Accessing information from the Akashic Records gives us Divine insight as we create and manifest our desires.

Grandfather’s Pipe


n May 17th, 2011, Grandfather William Commanda smoked his last pipe. Four people were present: Larry McDermott of Plenty Canada, me and my then 10-year old daughter, Veronica, and Romola Trebilcock, Grandfather’s close friend and assistant. Grandfather’s years and kidney disease were catching up with him. He still didn’t look his ninety seven, but he was visibly in pain and, at times, as if in another dimension. After lighting the sage and spreading his sacred items for the ceremony, Grandfather began to assemble his pipe. This pipe was a wonder in itself. The bowl was made of red pipestone, carved by a gifted artisan into an eagle’s head. “You see”, Grandfather told me once, pointing at his pipe bowl, “the male eagle may think he is the boss and all, but he is nothing without a female eagle. She is a true boss”. I never asked which eagle’s head was on Grandfather’s pipe, male or female, but I wonder now. For the last seven years, whenever Grandfather was in Ottawa, my children and I were faithfully present for his full moon pipe ceremonies. Sometimes, we were the only ones to share it with him and Romola, and sometimes, there were others to join us. Grandfather loved it when people gathered around, especially to share his pipe. His own stories were exchanged with others; Grandfather’s face would light up when he heard of other people’s journeys and their honest search for the sacred. All faiths were welcome. Grandfather’s sincere interest and respect for other people’s beliefs were remarkable. He, himself, having been through the Catholic Church in his early years, would occasionally sing to us in Latin. It was a presence I always felt when Grandfather smoked his pipe. I could almost see the long line of Grandfather’s ancestors, smoking their pipes on this ancient land before him. The unbroken line of prayers, moving through Grandfather’s pipe to all of us and into the future. “You have to be careful when you smoke the pipe”, Grandfather told us at his last pipe ceremony, “You can never use the pipe to do harm or wish anything bad. Your heart has to be pure, when you smoke it”, he touched his own heart, “or the pipe will come back to destroy you”. With these words, I believe, Grandfather warned us against focused malicious intent, but not against the usual pitfalls of our human nature, which we cannot help but have. Grandfather was always very tolerant of our human condition. He often said that Creator is very forgiving of us too. Sometimes a visitor would come, whom we thought disrespectful or even hostile towards


Grandfather, but Grandfather would still listen patiently, maybe, with a bit of humour but always with love. I asked him once, after one particularly difficult visitor, how can he still love someone like that, and Grandfather told me, “If I could change, and I was the worst drunk on my reserve, then he can change too”. “So”, I asked, “you see the potential in everyone then, right?” “Yes”, Grandfather said, “that’s right, in everyone.” Grandfather spoke to us often of his years of drinking. “Sometimes, I would wake up in the ditch and the rain water would be flowing through me. I taught my little brother to drink. We would come home to our parents passed out with the bottle between them. I tried the bottle first when I was eight.” Cancer followed his hard years of drinking and in his forties Grandfather was left by the doctors to die, as nothing they could do to save his life. “The pain was so great that I prayed to the Creator either to save me or to take me. If Creator was to save me, I promised to serve Him to the end of my days. I was on my knees and cried so hard that the floor under me was all wet. And the little bird came, sat on my window and sang such loud and beautiful song. I knew then that Creator heard me...” Grandfather was healed of his cancer by his wife and other medicine women and by a gifted healer, of whom Grandfather always spoke with greatest respect. “This healer told me, I would never have cancer again”, said Grandfather and to the end of his days he had been, indeed, cancer-free. Grandfather kept his promise to the Creator and on the first weekend of August, 1969, he held his first sacred gathering at his home grounds in Maniwaki. He hosted it every year since and towards the end of his life, this event would bring together thousands of people from all over the world. The spirit of Grandfather’s pipe would travel back to every corner of the globe. Grandfather believed that the greatest power is the power of prayer. We lost count how many people were helped when Grandfather smoked his pipe for them. Seemingly hopeless situations would resolve and lifethreatening illnesses would reverse. Grandfather would start every pipe ceremony with prayers to the four Elements and all Directions. “The Elements: Fire, Earth, Water and Air, don’t want to be worshiped, they want to be respected”, he taught me. After Elements and Directions, Mother Earth would be honoured by his pipe. “Our Earth is our mother, we don’t own our mother, she owns us. In spite of what we do to her, she is still taking good care of us.” Grandfather was deeply connected to everything living around him. Grandfather often spoke of the act of creation being reflected through the pipe. “The bowl is female and the

Lifestyle Change is What We Need


recently wrote an article asking the question, “What does health mean to you”? Most people just go day by day practicing habits they have grown up with, right or wrong never really making the connection between how they feel and what they eat. It’s not until they experience health related problems that they consider lifestyle changes. “If good health is the product of right living, sickness or ill health must be the result from wrong living.” Like causes, produce like effects all through nature. Could our family health history be a summation of our families’ dietary habits or traditions? As an Iridologist I see this as a common pattern in families. The problem is we don’t want to make the necessary changes that will change these genetic patterns. When we consider the dietary deterioration over the past 100 years through the industrial, chemical age, we can begin to understand why we have so much disease. Paul Bragg said, “If mankind would at once discard all refined, sprayed and unnatural foods, it would be the beginning of a race of people that would live long happy lives and be free of disease. Man lives today on a diet of too much dead food (cooked) and processed foods, too many protein foods such as meat, dairy, too much starch and sugary foods. He must make a complete turnaround if

stem is male, we join them together when we smoke the pipe.” Sacred union of male and female energies creates most profound magical mystery. According to Grandfather, that is what makes the pipe prayers so powerful. And so on that day in May, after saying his prayers to the Elements, all Directions, Mother Earth and Grandmother Moon, Grandfather suddenly began to speak to us with such urgency of the pipe, how to do the prayers, to honour everything living and how to do the ceremony itself, and I was flooded by the feeling that it would be Grandfather’s last pipe that he smoked in his lifetime. I don’t know how he knew it. He would pass on August 3rd, 2011, almost three months after our last pipe ceremony. And after he told us all he wanted about the pipe, he was silent for a long time and when I looked at him, I saw tears streaming, like a river, down his face. I never saw Grandfather cry before, and I remembered how during one of his gatherings a great rain suddenly broke, seemingly out of nowhere, right from the bright blue sky and Grandfather said to us then: “These are tears of the Ancestors, flowing down on us”. Written by Elena,

he is to achieve real health before it is too late. He must change his diet to include all fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, no hydrogenated oils etc. Russell Cromwell said, “in every man’s life there is no battle more severe, and no victory more honorable, than when a man fights with himself and wins the victory. Victory over one’s self is the greatest feat in the world and surely he who cannot control himself, cannot control others.” This is where the problem of solving cancer begins, with all the temptations of unhealthy foods all around us on every corner. We decide when we want to live healthy without pain, but when we learn the rules, suddenly the whole idea of life changes seems so unjust when everyone else continues to eat all this other food we must now avoid. It’s worth the sacrifice especially for the future generations. Without health, what do we really have? We can’t enjoy life fully. A weakened unhealthy body is prone to disease, deterioration and death. It affects our minds, emotions, motivations and our sense of peace and unhappiness. An unhealthy mind is prone to psychological disorders, depression, anxiety etc. We begin to feel down on ourselves, gain weight, stop exercising and stop eating right. It becomes a vicious cycle. Crash diets are not the answer; we end up gaining the weight back not to mention they’re hard on our bodies. Lifestyle changes are just that, not trying a diet for a few weeks and retuning to our old habits. Overcoming our excuses and developing lifelong healthy habits is the only answer. See if any of these excuses fit: • I just don’t have time to follow a healthy program. • Eating healthy is just too expensive. • Life is too short; you’re going to die anyway. • What I don’t know won’t hurt me. • I might find out something bad about my health. • I just don’t have the will power to change my habits. • I don’t want to cause friction in the family or my social life. • I know lots of people who eat healthy and they’re sick.

Acupuncture and Traditional Blaise T.Ryan,R. TCMP, R.Acu Chinese Medicine (TCM) is Traditional Chinese Medicine now Regulated in Ontario.

Registered Member of the CTCMPAO - College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Ontario


cupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) will never be the same in Ontario. Since April 2013, acupuncture and TCM is now regulated and can now only be practiced by licensed professionals.  This is great news for those seeking treatment, because until recently anyone could offer acupuncture services with little or no training.   This also means greater insurance coverage for those seeking acupuncture and TCM treatments.   So if you have insurance coverage, you should check in with your provider to see if you now have increased coverage for these effective health therapies because of the new regulations.   With a history of 3,000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has developed a unique system to diagnose and cure illness. The TCM approach is fundamentally different from that of Western medicine. In TCM, the understanding of the human body is based on the holistic understanding of the body and it’s relationship to the universe as described by the ancient Taoists. The treatment of illness is based primarily on the diagnosis and differentiation of syndromes and patterns. The TCM approach treats the internal organs as the core of the human body. Tissue and organs are connected through a network of meridian channels and blood vessels inside human body. Qi (or Chi) is often described as ‘energy’, yet it’s much more complex than that in the science of TCM.   Qi (or Chi) also carries information through the meridians to connect the outside of the body with the internal organs. For example, a rash may appear on the skin caused by a dysfunction in the internal organs.   It is through the understanding of these meridian channels that an acupuncturist is able to insert needles into the hands and feet which affect the internal organ health and bring relief to health problems.   TCM treatment starts with the evaluation of the entire system, and then focuses on the correction of pathological changes through balancing the functions of the internal organs. The TCM evaluation not only includes the cause, location, and nature of the disease, but also encompasses the balance between the pathogenic influence and the body’s resistance.   Treatment is not based only on the symptoms, but differentiation of syndromes and patterns. Therefore, those with an identical disease may be treated in different ways, and conversely, different diseases may result in the same pattern and are treated in similar ways. The clinical diagnosis and treatment in TCM are mainly based on the Yin-Yang and Five Element Theory. These theories apply the phenomena and laws

of nature to the study of the physiological activities and pathological changes of the human body. TCM therapies include acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary guidance, Tuina massage therapy and Qigong exercises. These therapies appear very different in approach yet when performed by a Registered TCM Practitioner (R. TCMP) they all share the same underlying sets of assumptions and insights in the nature of the human body and its place in the universe. Remember, never get acupuncture from anyone who is not licensed and registered, because they may not have the adequate training to deliver a safe or effective treatment.   Registered professionals will have “R.TCMP” or “R.Acu” next to their name to indicate that they are licensed. The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario is the legislated body that oversees the regulation and licensing of this profession.   You can check their website at to see who is registered in your area.

Healing with Past Life Regression

by Trevour Strudwick he majority of the world’s population believe in reincarnation. Buddhism, Hinduism, Neo-Platonism, and Qaballah all teach reincarnation in an effort to answer the eternal question ‘why are we here?’ You might be interested to learn that reincarnation was a tenant of Christianity until 545AD when it was decreed a heresy by the Roman Emperor Justinian - not a Father of the Church. More recently, the Chinese Government has passed a bill barring Tibetan Monks from reincarnating, presumably to gain control over who the next Dali Lama will be. It appears that the abolition or restriction of reincarnation is motivated by political reasons and not spiritual principles. The belief that the soul is eternal and travels through multiple incarnations in order to achieve purification, wisdom and experience speaks to us on the deepest level. Many mainstream psychologists who had no previous belief or experience with reincarnation have recorded Past Life phenomena with their clients. In documenting these sessions they also note that various conditions, pain and phobias spontaneously cleared up immediately following the Past Life memory. As investigation continues to develop, the experience of Past Life Regression is being used more and more to explain the unexplainable and bring deeper insight to our personal spiritual experience. Injuries sustained at one point on the timeline can be carried forward and the theory that a karmic debt incurred in a previous life will continue to follow you until balance is restored is central to the belief in reincarnation. Are you being compelled by ancient memories or atoning for wrongs done many lifetimes ago? These questions can only be answered by individual experience along the path of self-discovery. Trevour Strudwick has been using Past Life Regression professionally since 1988 and will be teaching a certification program this fall at Planet Botanix. 613-256-8394 to register.

Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: How can we be joyful in spite of life’s difficulties? SRI CHINMOY: How can we be joyful? Give selflessly. We get joy not by coming forward before others, but by bringing others to the fore. Real joy is experienced by self-giving, not by possessing or showing our own supremacy. When we allow others to get joy first, we feel our joy is more complete and more perfect. We can have more joy and less tension in life only in self-giving, not in demanding. When there is tension, it is because we want something to be done in our own way. We become tense because we see light in one way and others see light in some other way. So there is no peace, no poise, only tension. Understand that God operates not only in us, but in others as well and in our so-called enemies too. But these are not our real enemies. Our real enemies are our doubts, fears, anxieties and worries. When instead of trying to perfect others we try to perfect ourselves, then we will have joy. If we do not expect anything from anyone, we will have joy. If we can know that we are not indispensable, that without us the world can go on perfectly well, we will have joy. This way, we can all have abundant joy in life. Nobody can be as happy as a person who is detached. When we are attached to something or someone, we become a victim of that thing or person. If we want to have true joy and peace, we must be totally detached. Detachment does not mean that we shall not work for the world—we will work for the world, be in the world, but we shall not allow ourselves to be carried away by anything. The outer sign of progress is inner joy. Inner joy is something very sweet and intense; it always fulfills

our thoughts and actions. There are two kinds of joy­—outer joy and inner joy. We think that the possessor of outer joy is someone else, not ourselves. Again, we may try to get joy by talking or mixing with others. But inner joy is not got like this. When we meditate or contemplate, at that time we feel that we are the soul of joy. We get real joy from silent and profound meditation. In the outer life, when we talk and mix with people, or exchange ideas with others, we may get a kind of satisfaction. But this is not real joy. Real joy is something very deep, illumining and fulfilling. The joy we feel inside is like a fountain; it comes spontaneously. Inner joy has no fear and it can transform our nature. When the heart is open, you will feel boundless joy, boundless love and boundless purity. Then you will see joy in everything. A day will come when you will get spontaneous joy from everything. You will look at a flower and get joy, you will look at a child and get joy, and you will look at the world and get joy. You will also get peace and the feeling of universal oneness.

About Acupuncture


s early as the New Stone Age in China, the primitive human beings found that pressing certain (acupuncture) points on the body using bian stones can cure some diseases and alleviate the pain on the body. Through long history development, stone needles were substituted by bamboos and metals. A system of channels and collaterals is created by categorizing those points. The fourteen channels including the twelve regular channels and Ren and Du channels are important theory of acupuncture. They integrate five zand organs (heart, lung, liver, kidney, and spleen), six fu organs (stomach, gallbladder, large intestine, small intestine, bladder, triple energizer). The channels also vertically and horizontally connect with limbs, muscles, tendons and bones of the body. The channels and collaterals are the pathways, where qi is carried throughout the body. Needling the acupuncture points on channels can transfer qi, restore and regulate the functions of qi and blood circulation. Take the Large Intestine Channel for example. The Large Intestine Channel starts from the tip of the index finger, through the interspace of the first and second metacarpal bone (hegu LI4), enters the lower gums, finally to the sides of the nose (Ying XiangLI20). This is why needling the Hegu (LI4 on hand) can alleviate toothache. In the similar manner, the points on the Lung Channel can be inserted to treat cough, asthma. Needling the points on the Stomach Channel (Zusanli S36) can be used to alleviate the stomach pain. The

Meditating with Angels by Reza Shadman


have recently come across a beautiful book, Angels in my Hair, by Lorna Byrnes. While reading the book I found a renewed sense of connection to Angels and asked for inspiration for the upcoming classes. Inspiration came as an image. An image of many shimmering golden Angels in meditation room praying over people. It inspired deep feelings of peace and harmony. I thanked them and held on to the feelings for as much as I could. Angels invoke love. When I’m afraid I ask for their help and can feel their love. I’ve felt their touch since I started meditating, but they are not the only one. I love to call onto Buddha and specially the presence of Mother Mary and others who are here to help us opening our hearts. I guess one could say this style of meditating is very heart based. Classes are small groups, and are done in guided format. Guided meditations are specially helpful

Your body’s guide to Conscious Eating!


veryone is looking for the secret to losing weight, getting fit and feeling comfortable in their own skin. New drugs, vitamins, exercise equipment, fad diets become the new rage promising a slimmer, healthier you! The truth of the matter is there really is no magic secret, pill, or food that will help you to achieve and sustain your goal. It can be realized without busting your butt at the gym for hours or living off of cabbage soup , diet pills or protein shakes which give you terrible gas. For the most part, society has gotten away from the very basics of healthy wholesome nutrition; real whole foods in their natural form which make our bodies feel good. Think of our bodies as one might a vehicle, if we fueled our vehicle with sugar water it wouldn’t run and the engine would seize. The same goes for our body, feed it junk and it won’t thrive. Our bodies are not designed to ingest artificial additives such as antibiotics, artificial colourings and refined and overly processed foods. Our food suppliers have created foods which appeal to the taste buds by enhancing the flavor to make them sweeter, bolder and more flavorful with very little thought on how those unnatural flavorings and colourings affect our bodies. In the taste department, a brussel sprout pales in comparison to the bold salty flavor which comes from a bag of potato chips. As you contemplate your next diet program, rather than counting fat grams or sodium grams or even calories I invite you rather to consider the following Rate your Food scale with one simple question in mind. “On a scale of 1-3, How Real is This Food?”

haven’t been altered, canned or jarred and have no added sugar to enhance the flavour. Where possible, Organic should be the preferred choice. Humanely raised Meat and Fish without the addition of antibiotics and hormones. There are also a number of grains with little processing and preserving such as quinoa, brown rice and millet which are full of nutrients and fiber to naturally assist the body. All these foods would be given a rating of 1. A rating of 2 would be frozen fruits and vegetables, canned vegetables and fruit. The foods started from a natural state and then where altered slightly to preserve them. Eating consciously is a choice requiring some thought and at the same time promises many benefits including Optimal Health and Well being, increased self confidence and a healthy body image . If you wish to be fit and healthy; eat foods grown from the Earth 90% of the time. Then when you do have the occasional treat food it is just that a treat not your lifestyle. It would be my pleasure to assist you in the creation of a real food program centered on optimal health and wellbeing.

For example: A Rating of 3 would be given to packaged Snack foods such as prepared baked goods, chocolate bars, Chips, Enriched White breads, Meals in a box, sugar in all sorts of different packages etc These foods are loaded with artificial food colorings and flavours which do not complement and in fact cause our bodies to work harder to eliminate the additives and impurities. Often these foods do not have a Real food as a primary ingredient. A Rating of 1 would be given to Fresh Vegetable and Fruits; nothing added nothing taken away. They

Blessed Virgin Teaching Of The White Rose Of Faith October 5, 2004


he White Rose of Faith is the work of the Light of God, who is Jesus. He is living in us as a work of faith, who is receiving our sins, and He is like Mary, who like Jesus, is calling out to the world for the work of peace. The White Rose of Faith teaching is now given: A rose is made perfect by the longing of the heart, and the heart who calls it to become perfect, is waiting for the rose to blossom. It is blossoming by faith, and it continually drops a petal off to show that it yields the many virtues of faith. It is letting go of the world slowly, and it represents the many facets of faith in the world, but it is a teaching of faith which is all enduring and all encompassing and yields the fruits of faith, which is made perfect by the Father. It is a fruit of forgiveness and it is a fruit of love, and in it we are shown how roses can make us know the littleness of life, and how littleness of life is inside us. We are always making ourselves little and this littleness, is my teaching. The small child, who lives in the heart of Christ is a sister or brother of Christ. They are chosen by Christ to portray littleness, and to be the wonder of Christ sign in men. They are working miracles of faith who are giving themselves to Christ through the littleness of life. They are preserved by Christ in His abode in their littleness, and He is teaching them all one by one. He is calming them, supporting them, and listening to them. It is the white rose of faith, which causes them to know the love of the world. In the White Rose of Faith a teaching is made perfect, through contrition. It is the Blessed Virgin’s teaching on abortion. A child who is aborted is made perfect through Love who is Jesus, and He makes them know what love is in the time that they are born. He is with them, as they are aborted, and when they suffer, He tells them what to expect, and He tells them what is needed by their tiny littleness, which is their soul. He sees their pain, and he extinguishes it by taking it upon Himself. He lives in them, and He sees them in the heart of Christ as a child who is suffering, and they are making Him weep, and he weeps inconsolably with passion and forgiveness. He is making them know His life, and He is putting them in His Hand, and He is holding them with sureness and love, and He guards their littleness. The child who is aborted is not made to suffer in a physical way but suffers spiritually, and is knowing the pain of separation of the mother and the child. It is in pain knowing that it is being torn from the womb of life, and it is in pain knowing that a woman, who is it’s mother is being let to receive the vindictiveness of life. She is left to know, the pain of abortion, which is


what the Lord, had made her know, but she is without consolation, and she has no understanding of the Lord. In this, she is welcomed by the Lord, who loves her, and she is returned to the fold. She is preserved by the grace of forgiveness of the Lord. A small child, who is taken from the birth mother, is also placed in the situation where it can know pain. It is also placed in a vessel, which the Lord keeps for such events where He cleanses them. He cleanses them and in His cleansing, releases them from the memory of the pain of abandonment. It is His Will in them coming to life. He takes them to the place where he adorns them with His Love, and He is giving them new life. He seeks them out, and when they come toward Him, he reaches out, and places His cloak around their shoulders. It is the act of love of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. The cloak is a garment made up of the works of angels, who realize the needs of the child, and the child is protected from birth and given safety. It is the act of the Will of the Father, which causes this to occur. In this time a child who suffers will know eventually the will of The Father. It is the work of the wholeness of life in them. It involves the work of life, the Father, the Mother, and the return to Christ. It is the Holy Mother, who teaches this. In the Holy Mother word’s, “The child of Christ is saved through Faith, and when they receive my illumination, they receive the blessing of the Blessed Virgin, who takes them in hand” Today, a child of God, knows Light and the Light is the son of God, who is returned. They realize light through a visitation of the Holy Mother. She bestows upon them some gift called by her a “Gift of Mary”, and she lets them know. It is the sure sign of the times. It is meant to accommodate the needs of those who are lost,! those who place trust in the Lord, and those who are made to know of it. Amen. MARIAN HEALERS OF CANADA 613-795-4583 Established 2004

Immune Support for a Healthy Winter

By Similar Solutions ully nourished by the warmth and joys of summer, our bodies may receive the first cool days of autumn with grace.... But if not, there are ways to ease the transition. The autumn season can be challenging and calls for extra gentleness toward ourselves as our energies and lives move inside. What actions can we take to empower our immune system to keep us healthy and vibrant through a long winter? A foundation of strong immune functioning requires a body free from toxic, depleting substances, and a balanced, nutritious diet. Our resilient bodies can endure sub-standard circumstances for long periods before succumbing to stress or unhealthy lifestyle. We can be hard on ourselves. We may not even realize that we are. Moving beyond these cultural habits can open a new way of relating to ourselves: one of care and respect. Toxic build-up can inhabit different organs of the body, such as the liver, kidney, intestines or lymphatic system. Toxicity in the organs accumulates through poor diet, chemically treated water, heavy metal exposure, intestinal bacteria imbalance, medications and pollution. Electro-Dermal Screening (EDS) is a tool (placed on energy points of the body) used to ascertain which areas require detoxification and rebalancing; a complement to homeopathic treatment. The lymphatic system is a network of organs and tissues that accounts for 20% of immune function and passes 20 litres of water daily (why it’s important to drink!). The lymph is fundamental to the elimination of toxins, bathing cells in fluids that cleanse and sustain healthy cellular activity. Cells congested by toxins contribute to a sluggish lymph system, an early sign of slow and chronic malfunctioning of the body’s immune defenses that can lead to disease manifestation. Homeopathic support of lymph functioning can greatly minimize susceptibility to viral and bacterial infection. The intestines or ‘gut’ also supports our defenses, resting at the centre of the body and energy system. A mucosal lining runs through the intestines offering protection by filtering out which substances enter the bloodstream. When we consume a diet that is high in sugar (all forms), low in fibre, or includes antibiotics or unknown allergens (e.g. gluten, dairy), an imbalance in gut bacteria can occur, leading to damage of this sensitive lining. Foreign proteins and viruses enter the blood, causing white blood cells to react to these invaders with an “inflammatory response”. The joints, tissues, muscles, bowel, etc. become fertile ground for auto-immune disease. Many believe this condition to be chronic and prevalent, yet undetected. We have evolved beyond basics like Vitamin C for immune support, which - although important -


are not enough. Bodies respond differently in how they accumulate toxins and experience imbalance. Professional guidance can be pertinent to discerning what’s needed to care for yourself. Similar Solutions uses EDS to observe and locate weakness in organ function, glandular systems and cellular metabolic function. We provide homeopathic drainage and detox programs to target these areas and address nutritional deficiencies. We hope to contribute to you by supporting your immune system for a bright, cozy winter! Sessions are 90 mins, with a shorter follow-up to confirm treatment success. (Please don’t eat 2 hrs prior to testing. No lotions on hands/feet.)

by Grace Joubarne, Clinical Hypnotherapist


an you figure out why the fluoridation of drinking water with Hydrofluorosilisilic Acid (classified an EPA Class 1 toxin) is now considered to be the biggest fraud ever perpetrated against the North American public?

1. Ontario Dental Association fee guidelines state that a cavity would cost from $121 to repair depending on the severity of the cavity. 2. The structural damage to fluorotic teeth caused by drinking fluoridated tap water can never be repaired. It can only be covered up by replacing the fluorotic enamel with porcelain veneers and crowns at a cost of roughly $600 per tooth times 28 teeth or about $16,000 for one child. Replacement of crowns and reapplication of the veneers could bring the lifetime cost of repairing this damage to $30,000 or more. On average, 10 teeth will be affected that will need repair at a cost of $6000 initially and at least $15,000 over a lifetime. (per Dentist David Kennedy: 3. Need more help? Dentist David Kennedy (Bellingham, WA) does the math: “As a result of fluoridation, 150,000 children (30% of the approximately 500,000 children at each 1 -year age group) will fall victim to dental fluorosis each year. This will result in an initial cost of $6000 X 150,000 or 900 million dollars per year! As maintenance is added in over a lifetime, this figure will increase to 3.3 Billion dollars per year, in 1995 dollars, after 70 years, assuming the population of children does not change. And remember, this only corrects for cosmetic damage. The structural damage resulting from dental fluorosis can never be repaired. Nor can the psychological damage that results from these unsightly teeth.” 4. Dr. Kennedy: “… in 1952, Maury Massler and Isaac Schour, two of the most prestigious dentists in the United States at that time, published a paper showing that while well-nourished children drinking fluoridated water experienced a dental fluorosis rate of 25%, poorly nourished children experienced a fluorosis rate of 60%” (Journal of the American Dental Association 44:156165 (1952)). 5. Dental fluorosis is a consequence of water fluoridation caused exclusively from excessive fluoride. An infant fed formula prepared with tap water or a child who swallows fluoridated toothpaste is automatically poisoned. 6. The same substance used to fluoridate your water, ‘sodium fluoride’ (part of the Hydrofluorosilisilic


Acid compound sourced from fertilizer companies in the USA and China) was just used to gas Syrians. 7. Ingestion of fluoride in early childhood may damage the tooth-forming cells, leading to a defect in the enamel known as dental fluorosis. Teeth impacted by fluorosis have visible, permanent discoloration, ranging from white spots to brown and black stains. 8. Teeth with dental fluorosis demonstrate an increased porosity of the enamel, mostly limited to the sub-surface enamel in milder forms, but impacting the surface enamel as well in severe forms, resulting in extensive pitting, chipping, fracturing, and decay of the teeth. 9. The discoloration induced by dental fluorosis can cause significant embarrassment and stress to the impacted child, resulting in adverse effects on esteem, emotional health, and career success, depression and social anxiety. This, according to dentists, is a non-issue. 10. Canadian dental associations, Health Canada and City Councilors do not mention, in their marketing materials, dental fluorosis, the cause of dental fluorosis, or the tremendous cost of porcelains and crowns needed to cover up the permanent disfigurement to children’s teeth caused by fluoride. 11. Health Canada and the Canadian Dental Association continue to claim that the incidence of dental fluorosis, while in the severe stages in 41% of American children, is practically negligible in Canada although the same exact substance released into US drinking water and by Sarin gas in Syria is used in Canada. 12. Despite all independent studies comparing areas with and without fluoridated water showing there is NO benefit to anyone for anything (except to cosmetic dentists), they still bedazzle us with claims that fluoridation of drinking water prevents dental cavities. 13. “It is currently estimated that an average of 48% of children living in fluoridated areas now have some form of dental fluorosis, with 12.5% of children having fluorosis significant enough to be of “esthetic concern”. While proponents of water fluoridation dismiss dental fluorosis as a “cosmetic effect,” recent research indicates that the rate of bone fracture among children with fluorosis (even in the mild forms) is higher than the bone fracture rates among children with no fluorosis due to the concurrent skeletal fluorosis. (York Review, 2000) 14. The cosmetic dentistry industry is a multi-billion dollar industry…perhaps entirely as a direct result of the several generations of people whose teeth were deliberately harmed by fluoridated drinking water. What’s more, using the water treatment system to mass-medicate a population for something that is

Learn Who Really Benefits from Fluoridation of Drinking Water. Hint, it’s not children!

neither contagious or life-threatening (cavity) is in violation of the Health Care Consent Act and using an EPA Class 1 Hazardous Waste product to do so is in violation of the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act, for starters. The very institutions established to protect the public is bilking it of billions through misleading information, non-disclosure of the health damages and perpetuation of what they know to be lies. If dental fluorosis was the only harm, it would still be horrific. But fluoride is recognized to be the substance that causes more cancer, faster, than any other substance (Dr. Dean Burk)…and they call this a natural nutrient …and they are fluoridating children’s teeth at the schools, without parental consent or full disclosure of the facts.

Dental fluorosis from Fluoridated water : the future look of Ottawa resident’s teeth? “The prevalence of fluorosis in permanent teeth in areas with fluoridated water has increased from about 10-15% in the 1940s to as high as 70% in recent studies...” SOURCE: Marshall TA, et al. (2004). Associations between Intakes of Fluoride from Beverages during Infancy and Dental Fluorosis of Primary Teeth. Journal of the American College of Nutrition 23:108-16. “Current studies support the view that dental fluorosis has increased in both fluoridated and nonfluoridated communities. North American studies suggest rates of 20 to 75% in the former and 12 to 45% in the latter.”  SOURCE: Locker, D. (1999).  Benefits and Risks of Water Fluoridation.

Healing Oneself with The Gift


f you believe in reincarnation, you believe we are all born with past lives that follow us through many incarnations. Sometimes these past experiences come with us because they are not resolved even when we think we have dealt with them. Somehow, magically, they still present themselves as “Here we are – thought you had dealt with us, got rid of us, found the answers: nooooooo we are still here. We like you soooooo much we don’t want to leave you. We have become so much a part of you, like your DNA”. Sometimes that is just how deep it goes – to our very marrow. That is a scary thought – deep into our cellular level. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving…. Can you imagine having the opportunity to work through some of these Gifts, by honouring your own birth in this life on a spiritual and emotional level and what that means to you? What if you could be taken on a journey from your childhood to discover your own inner soul compass, the innate voice inside yourself that guides you every day, and find out how this compass has been operating all your life, how that takes you to this moment, as an adult, in the present day? As an adult today, you could awaken to your soul compass and open your heart to a far deeper understanding of self and begin to explore illusion and truth; waking up to your reality to give yourself The Gift. The Ottawa Spiritual Pathways Centre will be welcoming well-known Healer and Medium, Kelvin Heard of the UK, to Ottawa for one week in November where he will be offering The Gift a full-day Workshop on November 15th and again on November 16th, as well as offering private readings and speaking at our Sunday Service, November 17th. The Gift Workshop will cover everything mentioned above as well as help you to create a shield of protection, speak with your guides and walk a new path to bring The Gift ever closer. The Gift can be anything, from being a great Mother, to wanting to become a great Teacher, or Live Your Truth, or do that project you have always put off doing, or learn to say what you really mean in life. It is being able to walk in new shoes and become whole without fear.


You will finish the Workshop by being in your mind looking at a mountain where you will find The Gift that you have asked for and it will be given to you in a unique way so that you may complete your journey. Through The Gift, you will Open Your Heart and Live a different life and be solid and whole spiritually and emotionally. Kelvin Heard has visited Ottawa before bringing his gift of spiritual discernment and healing with him and reaching out to the Ottawa Spiritual Community. Kelvin is a respected, well-known healer who travels extensively throughout the UK and Europe channeling his beautiful healing energies and insights. He is also now in discussion now with a publisher regarding his book, A Rite of Passage, which is expected to be published in 2014 and for which we are eagerly awaiting. Kelvin began his work as a healer at the well-known Hale Clinic in London; has had articles published about him and his work in The Daily Mail, The Times newspapers and Elle Magazine as well appearing on various UK talk shows. Kelvin has also worked with well-known celebrities such as Sarah Brightman and others. He brings a beautiful Spirit with him and we know you will enjoy meeting him and experiencing his powerful healing energies which he brings with him, and to his divinely inspired workshops. If you are truly looking for deep healing and/or insights into your life, attending a workshop with Kelvin just could be your answer.

Why Alchemical Healing? by Debbie Clarkin,


I have been privileged to be part of many amazing healing experiences. From this first aid application to seeing the physical manifestations of tumours disappear before my eyes. Alchemical Healing has become a large part of my life as a practitioner and teacher. I have both the honour and pleasure of traveling across Canada, the U.S. and Australia to share Alchemical Healing with many wonderful people. And I have found lasting friendships and amazing colleagues. I invite you to join us to learn more about Alchemical Healing in Ottawa this October.

Over the course of my life I had studied many modalities both as a layperson for my own use and then as a professional but everything was disjointed and exclusive in irtheir application. I asked the universe to help me find the missing piece.

From Adult to Elder

– the Fall Season of Letting Go


s we enter the fall season in nature as well as the fall season of our own life, it is the time to slow down, reflect on our life, and journey within. This is the season to look at our life to see what is now time to release and let go. We can start with what may appear to be easier to do, our stuff. Things we no longer want, no longer relate to and/or no longer find useful. Although these terms look similar, their impact may affect us differently. I read the series titled The Americans (seven books) about three times over the years and although l loved it at the time, I no longer want to and hence, time to let them go. I also have an old pair of pants that still fit me but I no longer want them nor find them useful and therefore time to give them away. I may never want to wear again my threeinch high-heel shoes but because they remind me of the day I danced with my husband for the first time, I’m still attached to them and not ready to part with them yet. It is certainly easier to let go of the stuff that are clearly no longer fitting, outdated, worn out, nor no

longer hold a sentimental value. It is much more of a challenge, however, to let go of things that not only hold a sentimental value but are clearly connected to our identity, our sense of self, our independence. What about selling my car because public transportation is at my doorsteps and the money I would save would make a difference? It’s not about the mechanical thing that I’m attached to but rather it viscerally representing my independence, my capacity to come and go when I want to. Moving to a smaller place after living in a house that has been the heart and soul of family and friends’ gatherings can also be a challenge. Again, it’s not the structure itself that will be missed but the smells, the energy and the irreplaceable memories that each room holds that is unique to that place. This may sound to some like negative thinking, of getting stuck in living in the past, of not moving forward, but these are real feelings that need to be dealt with and not just ignored or dismissed away as irrelevant. Before moving on to the positive, which will happen, we first need to grieve, the letting go of our sentimental attachments when they have touched us deeply. The working through the emotions and releasing them, when it is time to let them go is much healthier than forcing them out or suppressing them. I have found that creating a ritual of closure really helps in the releasing of these emotions, like a funeral, where we celebrated the life of the person and had many good laughs as well as soulful crying. The same can be done for this.

love doing goal setting with clients! There is no greater satisfaction for me then to work with people and seeing them achieve their dreams. That process of creating is very rewarding as I see “ordinary” people achieve fantastic things in their lives. Being that I work in the “financial” world, many of my clients’ goals are money related. However, what I have found is that tucked away behind these “financial” goals is usually a lifestyle objective. As I work with them, the whole discussion quickly turns into a cat and mouse game of trying to uncover what the true objective for the stated financial goal is. I call this Financial Life Planning where one sets out a “lifestyle” or a “life goal” and then we figure out the finances to support that goal. When I’m with my clients, I like to drive the discussion even further than the simplistic “objective + timeline = money needed” equation. For me, there has to be a WHY attached to this whole Financial Life Planning process. When you start the process of goal setting with the question WHY, you fundamentally change your vision of things and the purpose of your goal. Life becomes more than an accumulation of money and things. Yes, these are important but are they the most important? For me, the real questions are: What is your life purpose? Why are you here? Why do you do what you do? What is your driving passion? How do you want to be remembered when you are gone? Answer these truthfully and see how quickly your priorities change if they are not yet in alignment with your real life purpose! This is Financial Life Planning and it is a discussion that goes well beyond the money issues. As a Retirement Coach, the discussion I have is no different for somebody who is contemplating leaving work. What will become your new life purpose after you leave work? How will you occupy your time once you retire? I have found that people without a clear sense of purpose, an answer to the question WHY, could have Tel: 613.440.2734 Fax: 613.440.2560

a retirement that is not as fulfilling and meaningful as it should be. For me, somebody engaged in prolonged “idle busyness” is a person without a sense of purpose or a mission statement for their life. Simone Choy, a fellow life coach based in Ottawa said it best at a recent event when she stated that the two most important days in your life are 1) when you are born and 2) when you figure out why you are here. I truly believe that and any attempt to set some meaningful goals in your life need to go through the filter of “WHY”. Take the time to see if you can find an answer to the questions outlined above. If you have already set some goals for yourself, review them with this new WHY question. See if something new resonates inside of you. Challenge yourself and have fun with this simple yet complex three letter word called WHY.

He conducts workshops and courses that are focused on helping people accumulate wealth as well as designing meaningful and rewarding retirements.

Changing your Body Can Be Ease, Joy, and Glory with the Tools of Access Consciousness


ith so-called factual information about the latest optimal diets for health and weight loss changing as fast as the flavors at your ice cream store, how can you know what’s really going to work for you? The key to knowing what’s right for your body is just that, says Access consciousness Founder Gary Douglas – YOUR BODY! Doctors with whom Douglas works point out that our bodies are more different on the inside than they are on the outside. This uniqueness goes a long way towards explaining why no one diet works for everyone.


Empowering People To Know That They Know What would it take for YOU to have more of YOU? What if you could change your BODY & enjoy it?

Weight Loss Program

6 weeks of Hands on Body Process’s & Verbal Clearings, Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 & Nov. 6, Wed. evenings from 6 pm – 9:30 pm, $300. For 6 weeks.

Bars Class - October 3 and November 1 2nd Annual Global Access Bars Class!

November 10 - This is going to be a very different Access Bars class! It will include…. • “The Bars” with The Leaders Creating a Conscious World Seven Access Facilitators will be facilitating the one day class and at the end you will be a Bars Practitioner. • Energetic Synthesis of Communion® with Dr. Dain Heer - This class will include a one hour-ish ESC session with Dr. Dain Heer, the co-creator of Access Consciousness

Foundation Class - October 18 & 19 Level 1 Class - October 20 & 21

Access consciousness has a unique solution to knowing what will work for your body. This solution is to simply ask your own body. Sounds good, you may say, but how do you do that? Some people who are trained in kinesiology can use muscle testing, but Douglas has not found this works very well for him. He uses a method of testing which involves his whole body. He holds a particular food he has a question about in front of his solar plexus, puts his heels and toes together, and asks if his body would like the ingest the substance that he’s holding. If your body leans forward, that’s a yes; backwards, that’s a no; and sideways means you’re not asking exactly the right question. a small adjustment in your wording may be all that’s needed. You could change it to, “Body, would you like to ingest this sometime today or in the next 24 hours or this week?” Another way of communicating with your body, if you’re eating in a restaurant, is to let your body show you by noticing what your eyes land on first on the menu. Whatever you notice first, can read clearly first, is usually the item your body would most like to eat, so you order that. It will likely NOT be what you are most used to eating – but you might be surprised at how great it tastes. What tastes wonderful is exactly what your body would really like to eat, even if it something you never would consider normally. When you give your body what it really requires, the result is food that can taste orgasmic on every taste bud. This usually lasts for 3-9 bites. As soon as the next bite

tastes like cardboard, that’s your body’s way of telling you it’s done. A radio show host in Utah, Donnielle Carter, went from a size 16 to a size 6 using Access Consciousness tools, in the space of 4 months. She used some of the hands on body processes of Access Consciousness, which are taught by facilitators. Her process consisted primarily of asking herself questions, being vulnerable and honest with herself, and destroying the lies she’d bought that were keeping her heavy. One evening she ended up following a line of questioning and processing herself until 4 in the morning. She discovered she had made a decision about not wanting to be seen that linked back to an argument with a friend in high school almost 20 years earlier. The access consciousness methods developed by Douglas apply not only to obesity, but to all other body conditions that you have not been able to change, including pain, disease, allergies, self-image, shape, and aging. Tired of being stressed out, in pain and can’t sleep? Let the Access Consciousness Bars nurture your body by releasing the electromagnetic components of all thoughts, ideas, decisions, and beliefs being held in your body!! What if when someone told you as a child that you were ugly or fat or skinny or mean or lazy…and you’ve been holding onto that belief in you and your body and creating your life from that belief?  What if

A Better Way to Deal with Stress

By Kymberli Ker, Salt Puddle Alternative Healing Therapy & Yoga eading researchers in the field of stress management have estimated that up to 80% of all illness is stressrelated. Prolonged levels of stress can lead to tiredness and irritability, a weakening of the immune system and the development of physical disease within our body. Anything we can do to reduce our stress levels has a positive impact on our overall long-term health and therefore means we enjoy a far more productive, longer and happier life. Research has found that Reflexology treatments can significantly reduce stress levels in a person’s body, and even more importantly increase their ability to cope with stress. In today’s society, stress is something that many people struggle with on a daily basis. Not only is Reflexology great for reducing stress; it is also beneficial as a preventative measure for good health and to strengthen our immune system. Our immune system is often the most compromised system when we are experiencing high levels of stress.  If we have a strong immune system, we are better able to fight infection and disease and eventually become ill less often. Reflexology has been proven to improve the circulatory, nervous, respiratory, and digestive systems. Regular treatments help the body reach and maintain its natural equilibrium or homeostasis, thus aiding body systems to work more efficiently together. Reflexology works the entire body as a whole rather than the individual systems. Reflexology is simple to receive and the benefits are so extensive that people often are so impressed on how different they feel after receiving a treatment. Reflexology is a natural healing therapy that is centuries old. Unlike conventional medicine, which very often deals only with the symptoms of an illness, regular Reflexology treatments deal with the root cause. Reflexology encourages a balance of energy and the stimulation of the body’s self-healing properties.

Garo and Friends bring Rumi Remembered to Ottawa By Rouba Dabboussy


orn where east meets west, to an Armenian family in Turkey, young Garo Altinian longed to explore the new world. That dream came true in 1968 when teenaged Garo and his family, with only a couple of Turkish rugs and their clothes, made the one-way trip to Canada. As years went by, Garo’s search to find meaning became a life-long quest. The search drew him to Gurdjieff among other philosophers and teachers. “Take the wisdom of the East and the knowledge of the West and then seek” -- a single line in Gurjieff’s writings set off the quest to a much deeper path. So Garo began to seek, first by immersing himself in Vedic philosophy and practices, then both eastern and western paths. Ironically, Garo encountered Sufism in Canada -- a philosophy originated in the same region where he was born. The music and chanting so integral to the path (Tariqa) and practices in Sufism (as it is in the Vedic practices and other spiritual paths) became an essential part of Garo’s life. Having played the mandolin in his youth, Garo was drawn to the guitar; soon it became a part of his daily practice. Garo began composing inspirational and devotional songs, but it was not until experiencing Mewlana Jalal’uddin Rumi’s poetry that the music and songs poured out. Or, as Garo describes it, “the music began coming through him”. With a musically talented, like-minded circle, Garo and various friends began performing inspirational concerts “Ilham” in Toronto, stimulating audiences to seek and to connect.


In 2012, Garo and Friends released their first CD Rumi Remembered - Inspiration at a Toronto concert alongside Coleman Barks. Barks, a leading interpreter of Rumi’s poetry, praised Garo and Friends as “musicians for healing the soul and opening the heart”. Now a resident of Ottawa, Garo encountered talented musicians here. As the circle of friends grew, so did the urge to bring Rumi Remembered to Ottawa. Rumi Remembered is a celebration of the life, and legacy of the great teacher, poet and mystic Rumi. Amongst the greatest mystical poets, he has attracted spiritual seekers from diverse paths for centuries. When reading Rumi, poet of the heart, one dives deep within mesmerised by the poetic and powerful imagery. Rumi Remembered is a concert fusing traditional and western instrumentation, performed by Garo and Friends, an ensemble of twelve musicians, vocalists and whirlers. Combining instruments of the east and west, they bring contemplative melodies through original music and songs in English, Turkish, French and Persian. All religions, all this singing, one song. The differences are just illusion and vanity. Sunlight looks a little different on this wall than it does on that wall and a lot different on this other one, but it is still One light Mewlana Jalal’uddin Rumi -- 1207–1273

motional literacy refers to the ability to first recognize and then speak authentically about one’s feelings. This is a life skill that people of all ages can learn and use effectively throughout life. We identify five core feelings: anger, sadness, fear, joy and sexual feelings. We acknowledge that students prior to puberty do not readily recognize their sexual feelings, so for pre-teens we use the fourcore feelings: anger, sadness, fear and joy. Each of the four feelings is associated with a body centre. Generally, anger is stored and felt in the head, the shoulders and the back; sadness is felt in the chest; fear is felt in the belly; and, joy is often experienced all over the body as well as circulating out of the body in the form of tingling and streaming. Sometimes we may feel a feeling that is a combination of more than one feeling. For example, jealousy is a combination of anger, sadness and fear. Other “combo” feelings are guilt and shame. It’s useful to check in with oneself to determine which of the core feelings is most activated when one is feeling a combo feeling or to honour that more than one of the five core feelings is being activated at the same time. Blame and ‘story’ that are usually defensive in nature are not important and are even discouraged. Why we are feeling the feeling is not as valuable as how and what we are feeling. Authentic sharing of feelings brings about a rapid shift from the core feeling to the experience of aliveness and even bliss if a full feeling cycle is allowed and experienced. Becoming emotionally literate then minimizes defensiveness and drama and aids in returning back to essence, vitality and aliveness.

Healing Osteoporosis, Rebuilding Bones

CARP RIDGE Natural Health Clinic

Chiropractic Care - Registered Massage Cancer Care - Food Sensitivity Tests Naturopathic Doctors - IV Clinic

—Katherine Willow N.D.


he first thing to know about healing osteoporosis is that bones repair themselves naturally, without drugs. It’s a matter of understanding why our bones weakened in the first place and responding to those causes while optimizing supporting factors. In my experience and research, the main triggers of bone loss are: poor diet, lack of exercise, deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, toxins & medications and the specific shock of feeling devalued. To simplify the contributing dietary factors, bones will weaken with too much acidity and not enough minerals. The main sources of acids are soft drinks, coffee and excess protein. Decreasing these foods, as well as salt & alcohol, shifting the diet towards more vegetables and fruits and supplementing with alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium will help regenerate bone. As for exercise, convincing research shows that exercise in short bursts with increasing intensity is best for rebuilding muscle and bone—as well as stimulating the anti-aging human growth hormone. Running marathons or long stretches of cardio will actually weaken bones. Good resources are the book PACE by Dr. Al Sears and the popular website The other aspect of exercise is whether a patient has enough energy to do intense activity. Sometimes we need to slow right down and do rejuvenating therapies such as restorative yoga, chi gong, strolling in nature, deep breathing and lots of resting before we are ready to start more intensive movement. This isn’t easy, but once accepted helps us connect with our deeper wisdom and allows our energies to rise… In the deficiency category, most people think of calcium for bones but there are a host of nutrients that work together to maintain and repair bone tissue, including magnesium, phosphorus, boron and vitamin D for us northerners. There is a wealth of fine-tuning around these supplements, including how to assess them. I usually start with a screening hair analysis and go from there. If there are a lot of low values, it’s important to improve the capacity of the digestion to absorb. Toxins and medications that interfere with bone metabolism include cadmium, nicotine, isoniazid, corticosteroids, tetracycline, thyroid preparations and antacids. Hormonal imbalances can be straight forward or quite complicated, such as a simple lack of progesterone



2386 Thomas Dolan Parkway, Carp just up the hill from where Thomas Dolan intersects with Carp Rd. or testosterone or an imbalance between cortisol and DHEA. Blood tests are important to sort this out, but one must be careful not to get too caught up in tests and lose sight of the simple basics. Learning to relax can substantially help the hormones rebalance and recharge. More specifically on the topic of stress and relaxation is the information from German New Medicine (GNM) that bones respond to shocks of devaluation by thinning. In North America, the greatest population experiencing osteoporosis is post-menopausal women, which we assume is due to receding hormones. Yet in Eastern Europe, where women gain in status when older, becoming matriarchs in their communities, they have a low rate of bone loss despite poor diets and few gyms. A testimony to the devaluation women experience when they age in our culture! Finally, there is another helpful piece of information from GNM, which is that bones ache when they are repairing and that this process tends to take 6-8 weeks, longer if there are relapses into feeling devalued or if there is fear around the pain.

Changing Seasons: Protect The Skin You’re In


utumn brings change, physically as well as mentally. Our skin can retain much more moisture during the summer months, especially with the humidity that comes with living in a valley, but cooler temperatures mean our skin must adjust as well to drying out more easily. We are confronted with winter’s drying effects both inside and out-windy days outside and dry heat inside contribute to the skin’s moisture loss. Those with dermatitis, excema or psoriasis may have found some relief in warmer months, but find their skin is now subject to painful cracking and sores. So what to do? First, understand that your skin needs time to adjust to a new environment, so anything you add to your skincare regime must be attempted over a week or more. And I always suggest using ingredients, rather than finished product, if you have sensitive skin. That way you can immediately identify something that works well or that you should avoid. Shea butter is something I often recommend as a premier skin care healer. Shea butter, also known as karite butter, is derived from the kernels of Butyrospermum parkii, the Shea nut tree native to Western Africa. Traditionally, Shea nut trees are owned collectively and are thought to be the lifeline of the people of Ghana because they supply fruit to make the butter all year round. Interestingly, the men own the trees while the women are allowed to gather the nuts, giving them an independent source of income. It is harvested and processed according to age old methods, leaving a finished product that has a slightly creamy look and a slightly smoky odour. Most people enjoy the scent, but

you can always lessen the smell by adding essential oils like lavender or chamomile (which will also increase the healing properties!) Although it can be used as a food ingredient in margarine and chocolate, it is as a body care ingredient that shea butter really shines-it is perfect for dry, windy Ottawa winters to restore skin’s moisture and soothe windburn. It contains vitamins A, D, E and essential fatty acids necessary for skin repair. Any carrier oil can help nourish and protect the skin. My favourites for the drier, colder months include vegetable oils and jojoba. Most people react very positively to jojoba (actually a wax that is soluble at room temperature) because it is very similar, chemically, to the sebum in your skin. Sebum is the naturally occurring oil in your pores. It also has a large amount of Vitamin E, making it an excellent, easily absorbed skin healer. Other oils that are beneficial include sweet almond, avocado and argan. Remember that vegetable oils contains lots of nourishing vitamins and minerals, and, if you are using good quality oils in the kitchen, try them on your skin as well!   Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg- to learn more about natural therapies for the skin, please visit us at Planet Botanix! ©2013Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix at 301 Bank St near Somerset.  She gives workshops on creating natural body care and has been creating natural body care for over eighteen years.

The Blue Pill or the Red Pill?


n one of my favorite movies, The Matrix, Neo is living in a world that he thinks is real. Part way through the movie, he is shown another reality and he becomes aware that life isn’t what he thought it was; what he thought was real, necessarily wasn’t. The film explores the philosophy of reality. One way to define reality is by what you think is right. Another way to define reality is by what you focus on.

So imagine if all the upset, worry, offense, hurt feelings, and depression were not real? What if you could wipe it all away like dust off of a T.V. screen? What would you be left with? If the upset, worry, hurt feelings etc. were “filling you up”, and you took that all away, what else would be there? Would there be anything left? In other words, are “pleasant” emotions just the absence of “negative” emotions? Is joy merely the absence of despair or sadness? Is peace due to the lack of anger or worry? Or are these states of being, of joy and peace, more than just the shortage of other emotions? I refer to joy and peace as well as the other “emotions” I’ve mentioned so far as states of being because they are more than just emotions, more than just chemicals coursing through our bodies. With each of these emotions, there is a particular energy flow, a posture, tension, awareness, focus, breath and movement; therefore they are whole body/whole person states. I am presenting you the idea that we are filled with all emotions, all the time and that we have the capacity to shift from one emotion to another, like actors being able to inhabit different characters. We have the capability to pick and choose, like food at a buffet, it’s all there waiting for us, and all we have to do is focus on what we want. If you base what’s real on what you’re feeling, that state that you’re in, then it can turn out one of two ways. You can lock that state into your identity with a diagnosis or self-belief, and that becomes your only reality or you can learn to shift your state to another through using your focus, breath, energy and movement/tension and awareness.


Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) helps you to become aware of your breath, energy, focus and movement/ tension, which in turn give you more capacity to shift your state. Initially, it happens without you consciously doing it, you notice that you don’t react to things the same way. After a while though, through practice, you learn to shift your state consciously. This is very empowering and it allows you to better weather any storm that you are going through as well as experience more of what you want in your life and if

you’re anything like me, you’ll want more joy, peace, love, compassion and courage. I think this is the true definition of happiness, the ability to shift states in the moment and stay connected within to the things that matter most to you. And this is the gift of NSA. One of our practice members used to come in quite worried, anxious and tense over what was going on in her life. She was part of the government cutbacks/ layoffs recently and she didn’t know what she was going to do if she was to lose her job. This situation was really challenging her beliefs about herself, her life plan, and her needs of security and stability. With regular entrainments, she started seeing herself in a different light, she was able to see herself apart from her job, strong and independent. She soon found out that she did indeed lose her job but with her newfound sense of self and connection, she was able to turn herself around and actually strike out on a new path of selfemployment and creativity! “Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” ~ Tony Robbins If you are interested in learning more, please visit Dr. Tony Sandorfi has been serving the National Capital Region for 16 years with devoted passion.

Your True Self


Channeled by Lisa Virtue


o know who we truly are seems to be the question of the day. It is this search that drives many of us in our quest for enlightenment. But what is it we are truly seeking? What is this true self of which we speak? The true self by definition is that which is not false. Many people come to recognize things that feel false in their lives. When how they feel inside does not align with their actions. So this is how they distinguish having a true self. It is because they are feeling a disconnect. The true self is what feels right. It is what feels good to you. When you think about something and everything feels in alignment. So how do you know what this true self is? At first you come to recognize it from what it is not. And I suggest you can use those, then, to determine what the opposite is, to assist in finding the truth. So determining your true self is a feeling process. It has been a lifetime of input, which you’ve accepted, that has led you away from living fully as this true self. Now while the true self of your pure essence is always there (it has never left) you may have disguised it, hidden it, and layered over it with any number of things. Why is it important to uncover this true self? When you are feeling in alignment with your true self, you have a feeling of great joy, peace, and acceptance of what is in the world, and experiences around you. You are authentic in your expression, there is nothing hidden, nothing left behind. Honest and pure is what defines this.

To facilitate this shedding of that which feels false, and enable them to live their greatest, highest, best truth in integrity. It is my honour to serve that purpose. If you feel called to join me in a session, a workshop or an event that calls to your heart as a possibility for unravelling some of your layers, I would be honoured to fulfil that purpose for you. Please contact me at 613-296-4271 lisa@lisavirtue. com or www.LisaVirtue. com I honour the light within you as a reflection as well of the light within me. May we all shine brightly.
