Thanks from readers and contributors Lemmy -- I would like to congratulate you and your team for producing an excellent September 2015 issue, celebrating 30 years of consciousness-raising publishing, as well as the annual “Mystical Event” which promotes holistic health. As a long time reader of and contributor to Tone over the years, I think that your late dad Michael Monner is very proud of you, and pleased with your ongoing commitment to provide the Tone Forum. I really enjoyed reading the opening page, which addressed the “30 years of promoting good health, wellness and spirituality”. The description of the history of Tone was especially memorable to me, and reminded me of the many visits and discussions I had with your dad about promoting Spiritual Frontiers Canada’s (www.spiritual public talks and workshops through ads and articles in Tone. I also appreciate the super job done in including Tom Dettman’s thoughtful book review of my first book on “Truality” ( Continued best wishes. George J.V. Kokich (Ottawa) Great job in keeping this type of publication alive and well over the past 30 years. Daniel Roy CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC Praxis Wealth Management Congratulations on the 30th Anniversary of Tone Magazine! Master Lynda Chaplin Congratulations on 30 years of bringing inspiration, education and consciousness to our community and beyond! Your magazine has inspired us to step up and become more aware and conscious! Natasha We thank Tone for 30 years of publishing service in the Ottawa area. It is an unique service and we wish that they confine to spread the Light. Morris Redman

I remember Mike Monner when he first began producing Tone Magazine and we would drop off copy and sit and chat and Lucy Yang and I, who were good friends, would sometimes let me “unofficially” do some proof-reading. Thank you for reminding us about the early days of Tone Magazine from those small beginnings in the early days but with vision to what Tone has become the go to magazine, the hub of the consciousness-raising community in Ottawa. Here’s to the next 30 years. Love and Light, Gillian DEEPLY GRATEFUL TO TONE MAGAZINE........... I have had a Counselling, Coaching and Hypnotherapy practice in Ottawa for 30 years and I believe that I have had an article and/or an ad in almost every issue of this wonderful, consciousness-raising magazine. All other similar publications come and go. Tone not only remains, it just keeps on getting better and better every year. Tone does a great job of staying Spiritual and not becoming political. Many local practitioners, communities, and businesses have been encouraged and supported by the networking that Tone has provided. Many “partners-in-healing” (clients) have found their way to me through Tone. My heartfelt thanks to Tone, Lemmy and Michael (father of Lemmy and founder of Tone). With LovingKindness, Richard Merrill Haney, Ph.D., Ottawa Counselling and Mediation Services Many years ago in a conversation with Mike Monner, he asked me to write a monthly column. I have greatly enjoyed doing so. Tone is an essential piece of the puzzle expanding consciousness in our city. Dr. Ian Prattis The Mystical Event team would like to thank Tone and the exceptional exhibitors for a successful weekend Sept. 18-20, 2015.

In the float tank, we can also become our own best biofeedback system without external stimuli. Since the water in the tank is exactly at normal body temperature, we experience homeostasis or no experience of being “inside” or “outside” of our own skin. s s May you too experience Heaven le lnes w k o on Earth !! i n m s

have experienced floating at spas in Montreal (at Ovarium Spa) , Toronto, Chicago, Ottawa and Florida over 20 times. I have had a wonderful frui session each and every time. I am so happy that we now xie ty have an Ottawa floatation healing self esteem spa, t Ryan Butts, MBA, runs this spa weigh in a very professional way. He is COUNSELLING, COACHING very knowlegable and sensitive to the needs and concerns of his & HYPNOTHERAPY CENTRE clients. I recommend this amazing Richard M. Haney Ph.D.(Counselling), Hypnotherapist healing spa experience to all of my hypnotherapy clients. (613) 234-5678 (613) 726-3636 Richard M. Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. Interestingly, Ryan uses as one of Bank St. (in Centretown) Pinecrest Rd. (Counselling and Mediation) Richard his slogans, “Experience Nothing” has been practising Wholistic which is very apropos because many Counselling, Coaching, Hypnotherapy people believe that they have fallen and Mediation for the past 25 years in asleep when they are actually awake and in “theta Ottawa. To contact Richard please call (613) 234-5678 or state”. Their brain waves are operating at such a low send an e-mail to frequency (theta) that it is very similar to the even lower frequency brain waves (delta) that we experience when we are asleep and dreaming. Ironically, I call theta state experiencing one-ness because in this state of consciousness “everything-ness”, “nothing-ness” and “one-ness” melt into one sameness. This happens at the experiential level, not at the cognitive level. ECO-URBAN ORGANIC HAIR STUDIO There are several scientific reasons why floating stimulates Spiritual and physiological experiential epiphanies. Creating theta waves in our brain is the most obvious. The dense Epsom salt solution in the tank also creates an anti-gravity sensation. The creative “right brain” is highly active during a float. All three of our brains (the reptilian, the visceral and the neocortex) are active as a whole in the float tank. This is similar to when we are in embryonic state in our mother’s womb.

Trust and Your Truth Written by Alexis Nicol

f you think someone doesn’t trust you, then it’s most likely that deep down you don’t have a good relationship with trust. Perhaps your experience growing up was clouded by people that weren’t truthful or trustworthy. It could be like always putting on a false self to impress others. It’s so important to let go of what others think about you or more accurately, what you perceive they think about you. Being truthful is our ticket to having more confidence and more light in our lives. The more you live your life in truth, the brighter and lighter it becomes. It really drives me crazy when someone refuses to believe me. I’ve found that no matter how much you try to convince them they just annoyingly deny you your truth. Over the years I hadn’t realized how deeply it affected me. I thought by sharing personal details and baring my soul (none of their business of course) they would believe me – wrong! I realize that sadly, they just aren’t ready to trust. Perhaps I am the proverbial optimist. I speak my truth and I expect those I love to do the same. It is enough that we are being truthful. When we can let go of worrying about being believed we feel lighter, confident and more comfortable in our own skin. Accepting that it’s not up to me to change someone’s opinion or their perceptions about me, lifts an unnecessary burden from my spirit. If I am believed that’s good, if not, it’s not up to me (anymore) to try to convince you otherwise. I am so grateful that I love and trust who I am today. It’s time to cut those cords that keep one bound to insincerity, pretending to be OK with others’ ideas of how they want us to be. No more! Be the person you want you to be. Don’t allow the non-believers to take away the Truth that is you. Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines Reiki, Reflexology, Reconnective Healing®, the Reconnection® and A Course In Miracles in her practice. 613-263-7925

How to Improve Any Aspect of Your Life


o you regularly find yourself thinking about how your life could be better? How about rating each aspect on a one-to-ten scale? This will allow you to turn your focus on the parts that need attention the most. However, as a self-improvement enthusiast, perhaps you’ve already tried rating the different areas of your life. And even when the lower-rated areas of your life were improved, maybe they only got as good as a six or a seven at best. The good news is they don’t have to stay stuck there forever! Analyze Your Approach When parts of your life get stuck, the issue is oftentimes the approach. Any strategy has a maximum result, and the techniques that draw most people will never get them above a five-to-seven range. For example, strict adherence to a marginal exercise program won’t get you to swimsuit model status. No matter how perfectly the strategy is implemented, your results from that strategy can only take you to a certain level. In many instances, starting back at the beginning is what’s needed. Professional golfers occasionally get stuck in their progress and completely redo their swing. For a while, they’re stuck at what they consider to be a two-three level, but frequently they are then able to push through and finally reach a ten with a new strategy. Even with a more effective strategy, you might feel that it will take too long to get to a ten from a six. Yes, it can take some time, but the time is going to pass anyway, so it might as well be spent improving. Spend that time growing and seeing what you can become. Consider these important points as you evaluate your approach to growing any area of your life: 1. What is a ten? The first step is to consider what a ten actually is. What does a ten look like to you? If you’re dealing with income, is it $100,000 a year? Is it $500,000 a year with less than 20 hours of work a week? You’ll only get where you’re going if you know your destination.

way out there. Realizing how big a ten really is shows you how much higher you can go as you reach each milestone! You’re far more capable than you may have imagined! And it never ends. A billionaire has far more money than he could spend in ten lifetimes, but he still feels the need to see if he’s capable of more. Being fixed in one spot is never satisfying for long. The pleasure is in the progress and experience, not in staying at some milestone. Ultimately, the amount of fulfilment you feel is proportional to the amount of action you’re taking. So get out there and do as much as you can. A ten is certainly within your reach... but then again, a ten that’s attained doesn’t stay a ten for long as you reach even further!! Moira Hutchison Mindfulness Coach, Tarot Card Reader & Energy Healer 613.432.1239 Have you ever noticed that when we feel stuck - we become the expert of everything that does NOT work... The truth is that in order for a problem to exist - the solution must also exist! To get started feeling *unstuck* hop on over to and sign up for Step One of “The Letting Go Process” - it’s free!!

2. Set goals to move toward that perfect ten. Now that you know where you’re going, get started on the journey. Be aggressive but smart. As long as you keep moving forward, it’s impossible to fail. 3. Evaluate your progress. If your path isn’t working, do something else. Seek a different strategy and change your approach. When things are working, keep going. What Happens When You Reach Your Ten? When you reach your ten, you’ll realize that your original six was actually a three or a four, based upon your new perspective. The truth is that a true ten is way,

A. To understand hypnosis, it is important to understand how the conscious and subconscious mind works. 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 your awareness, and it has a great impact on your conscious acts, thoughts, and feelings. Through hypnosis, I help you to harmonize your conscious and subconscious minds. And properly directed, hypnosis helps you to achieve more of your own potential.

Soul Can Heal, Heal the Soul


our soul, the essence of who you are, can heal your mind and body. Every cell, every organ, every system, and every part of your body has a unique essence. You have the power to send a new message to your mind and body to activate healing. Dr. and Master Sha teaches the Four Power Techniques® and Say Hello Healing® to create Soul Mind Body Medicine®, a complete healing system for optimum health and well-being. Based on quantum science, your body contains information and messages. When you experience pain, it’s not just caused by physical reasons. The soul of your organ, system or body part may be carrying negative karma, negative beliefs and other limiting messages that block your experience of well-being. The soul of your organ, system or body part needs a new message for joyful and healthy living – soul healing removes soul mind body blockages, laying the foundation for energy, stamina and vitality to flow naturally in your life. What are soul mind body blockages? Soul Blockages are bad karma. According to Hindu and Buddhist traditions, karma is the record of your service in all your lifetimes. Karma can be good or

bad. Good karma includes love, care, compassion, and making others healthier and happier. Bad karma includes killing, cheating, stealing, hurting, harming and all kinds of unpleasant actions, behaviours, speech, attitudes, and thoughts. Good karma brings rewards – including physical health and vitality, emotional calm and balance, good relationships and finances, and more. Negative karma brings lessons –pain, suffering, challenges, and blockages in any aspect of your life. Mind Blockages include negative mind-sets, negative attitudes, negative beliefs, ego and attachments. Body Blockages include energy blockages and matter blockages. Energy blockages occur around the cells. Matter blockages occur inside the cells. By healing these blockages at the soul level, you bring new life to your being, creating a supportive environment for healing to occur within your mind and body. The secret is: Heal the soul first; then healing of the mind and body will follow.™ Master Lynda Chaplin is a Worldwide Representative of Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha, renowned master healer and spiritual teacher.

he hippocratic oath encourages doctors to “First Do No Harm.” In modern times, it has become increasingly difficult to NOT harm ourselves because we are continually bombarded by hidden food toxins, synthetical chemicals, heavy metals, and environmental pollutants. Many of these environmental toxins are particularly harmful to human brain cells. Your brain is a sophisticated yet delicate organ that impacts all bodily processes, including homeostatic functions like hormonal balance, breathing, body temperature and higher faculties like thinking, memory, motor coordination. In order to protect your brain and stave off cognitive decline or dementia, it’s critical to avoid known brain toxins and minimize lifestyle patterns that lead to brain atrophy. Here are 6 key areas to be especially aware of on your journey toward a better, sharper, healthier brain: 1. 2. 3.


EMF Signals: Wifi reduces brain function, contributes to insomnia, increases cardiac stress; cell phone usage is linked to brain tumours. Sleep Deprivation: inhibits memory consolidation, increases death of brain cells, imbalances brain biochemistry. Refined Sugar Consumption: causes poor memory formation, learning disorders, depression, mental fog. Air Pollution: decreases oxygen supply to the brain, reduces mental clarity and concentration.

“What the world needs now, is love, sweet love, It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of”

Is something blocking your loving heart?

The Transhumanist Agenda & Artificial Intelligence

We can bring you freedom with Divine healing of your 12-dimensional self and clearing from the root level.

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. hese song lyrics have been entirely relevant throughout our dark human history, and seems they always will be. However, there has also been tremendous sacred balancing on this planet, and for this reason, we are experiencing yet another intense push by off-planet controllers to further enslave humanity with more artificial intelligence (AI). It’s beneficial to understand some basics about the transhumanist agenda and AI because it affects us all. And it’s important to know the solution. Transhumanism, having computers and technology dominate our thinking and replace our biology as an accepted means of improving the human and Earth, is not our salvation. It is an attempt by the negative alien agenda to force AI and override our organic, life-giving God intelligence. Humanity has already been subject to countless invasions of our sovereignty so more mind programming, tracking of our social habits for brain mapping, imposition of nanotechnology, and distortion of our biology are simply more of the same anti-Christ agenda to degrade the human, usurp our consciousness, and extinguish our hearts. Alien machinery has already parasitized our world. It can mimic, monitor or disrupt our organic biological functions and lightbody, siphon or capture the energy of an individual, and alter his/her organic timeline. The body or consciousness can then be trapped and used to propagate artificial realities and future timelines, and serve off-planet negative alien races. Those that already use AI for tracking, programming, distracting, and deceiving humanity have no true understanding of the Soul-Spirit body and

consciousness. They would like us to never know we have power, but the Divine human is not helpless nor heartless. They do not know the power of love, but we do. So the anti-dote is to hold open our hearts. Keeping our frequency in love can de-activate AI. This begins with the practice of being open-hearted with ourselves, no matter what, so that we can truly love all else. Discerning the presence of mind control, as well as clearing our ego structures, trauma and all that blocks our hearts is our saving grace now. Only love can override the control on humanity.

No More Boring Date Nights


By Marlene and Bob Neufeld


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

Robert Greene, the author of the book, The Art of Seduction, says that surprise is at the root of seduction. Surprise is often the first thing that disappears in a long-term relationship. Our experience is that when we are curious and open to being surprised, we discover new things about each other, even after 45 years. We invite you to open up to being surprised, to doing things together that will take you to new, fun, unfamiliar and playful places. Marlene & Bob Neufeld practice body-centered Coaching and Psychotherapy. They are a couple who help couples learn lifechanging skills and create closer, more loving relationships with one another.

Aromatherapy and the Spirit


often write/talk about the physical attributes of essential oils, but not about their other aspects. Essential oils are the quintessential (pardon the pun) holistic therapy because they do indeed address body, mind and spirit. It seems like people are having a challenging time coping with all that life throws at them. It shows in our bodies with adrenal fatigue, weakened immune systems and other symptoms of ill health. Essential oils can help in many ways: by physically boosting the immune system, for example. But they also work on a spiritual level by allowing the mind to relax into a more meditative state, by allowing the individual to connect to the divine within. Sandalwood is an ancient oil, so loved that it has become an endangered species. we carry the Australian equivalent (Santalum Spicatum), which has been used over thousands of years in Egypt, Rome and Greece to grace temples and other places of prayer and meditation.

DEVENIR NATUROTHÉRAPEUTE EN ÉNERGIE? L’énergie qui soigne le corps !

Frankincense and myrrh are obvious candidates for spiritual work, since they have been used for thousands of years and incorporated into the Christian religion as well as the far eastern worships. I can’t resist a side note here that these oils were also excellent at preservation, and so were used in embalming etc. Frankincense is said to help a person feel inspired, protected and enlightened. Myrrh is said to help the ‘wounded healer’ by embodying courage, sympathy and calm. They have been used together to great effect. Spikenard is an oil you might not be so familiar with: it is said that Mary washed Jesus’s feet with spikenard. It is said that this oil inspires forgiveness, fearlessness and resolution. I think this is a very powerful plant for resolving inner conflict. There are many more essential oils that can help the spirit. Too many to mention here. I welcome you to come in and experience the aromas of our over 100  therapeutic grade  essential oils first hand. Because scent is so personal, experience is the way to discover which oils you connect with. @Heather Garrod 2015.

The 3rd Alternative in Mediation – Part 2 “A successful lawsuit is the one worn by a policeman.”


n family law, there is no such thing as a successful lawsuit. Even if you “win,” you lose. You and your spouse lose all the time, money and energy spent fighting each other, resources that could have been put to much better use for the family’s benefit. Even more important, the family as a whole loses the benefits of a true synergistic solution. Last month I talked about Stephen Covey’s book The 3rd Alternative, and how he demonstrates the limitations of the 2-Alternative universe, with its clear winners and losers. Instead, he advocates for the 3rd Alternative, where both parents win, where the final solution transcends “my way,” or “your way.” Synergy never happens in a courtroom. It happens at the mediation table where parents in conflict are helped to talk in a different way. Here are Covey’s four steps towards creating synergistic solutions. 1. Ask the 3 Alternative Question. “Would you be willing to go for a solution that is better than either of you has thought of so far?” As Covey says, this is the question that changes everything. It frees people up from the tyranny of having to negotiate, and from the inevitability of compromise (often the worst way to resolve conflict). It has the effect of reducing people’s defensiveness, since the mediator is not asking them to relinquish their legal positions, rather to simply set them aside for the moment while a different type of discussion occurs. Even if the answer to this question is a reluctant, cautious “yes,” it’s still a first step away from destructive “win-lose” thinking. rd

2. Define Criteria of Success. The mediator then asks clients how they will know when they have reached a better solution. Their answers are often very telling. They never say, “When my spouse agrees with my legal position.” Instead, they say things like, “I’ll know when I feel it in my gut.” Or, “I’ll know it when I can talk with him without getting a headache.” When warring spouses are invited to put aside their hardened legal positions and envision what real success looks like, they inevitably talk about how they want their feelings and their relationship – not their legal positions - to change. 3. Create 3rd Alternatives. “Where do we go to find 3rd Alternatives?” asks Covey. He quotes the writer Amy Tan who, in a 2008 TED talk on creativity, spoke of the sources of synergy as “hints from the universe, the arrival of luck, the ghost of my grandmother, accidents.” In other words, people solve apparent legal

613.237.7335 problems by looking outside the law, by engaging their imagination and creativity to redefine what “fair” looks like for each of them and their children. 4. Arrive at Synergy. Covey says, “We know the 3rd Alternative by the excitement in the room.” This is what mediators call “the magic of mediation,” the almost palpable feeling in the room when conflicts have been resolved at a deep level. Covey: “Winning is fun. But there is more than one way to win. Life isn’t a tennis game in which only one player gets to jump the net. It’s even more exciting when both sides win, when they create a new reality that delights them both.” When was the last time you heard someone describe their court experience as “delightful?” Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator.

Daoist Nei Gong Internal Energetic Arts by Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts, UK


ei Gong is an internal process and it is the foundation upon which all of the Daoist arts are based and the connecting link between martial arts, medicine and meditation within the Daoist tradition. When studied as a stand-alone subject, Nei Gong is a systematic method of working with the three bodies of man (the physical body, the energetic body and the consciousness body) in order to attain good health, psychological well-being and, at later stages, spiritual elevation. It is the bringing together of the theoretical philosophy of Daoism with an enigmatic energetic process which enables an experiential understanding of the nature of Dao. In order to understand Nei Gong it is important to understand that it is a process rather than a set of exercises. In order to move through this process we use various tools including Dao Yin and Qi Gong exercises but these are used simply to help guide students through the systematic refinement of internal ‘substances’ required to move towards connection with the congenital self and then ultimately Dao. While most people will have heard about Qi Gong, Nei Gong is still a relatively unknown subject on our side of the planet. Qi Gong, meaning ’energy work’, often refers to various sets of exercises with specific aims - e.g. improving health, developing martial power, etc. As the name implies, Qi Gong works with Qi to achieve its aims. Nei Gong (‘internal work’) has a wider scope than Qi Gong. The most fundamental difference between the two is that Nei Gong does not refer to any specific practices or exercises; nor does it have any predetermined aims. Rather, Nei Gong is a process that works with transforming your inner being. While Qi Gong can be taught through exercises—by telling you how to breathe and move, for instance - Nei Gong requires transmission from an experienced teacher who has been through the process themself. Nei Gong is essentially a tool to awaken our energy system and take us backwards through the process of creation. Thus, we start working with our acquired mind so we can eventually lead it back to its original or congenital state of being. Classically, Nei Gong was the practice that manifested the philosophy of Daoism into something tangible; as such, it provides strong foundations for other practices like internal martial arts (Nei

Jia) and Nei Dan Gong (internal alchemy). If we consider it in terms of how far it can take us on our journey from the acquired to the congenital mind, Nei Gong sits halfway between Qi Gong and Nei Dan Gong. Because it contains various elements from both disciplines, Nei Gong can be tricky to define. Also, the fact that it is a process, rather than a defined practice or set of practices, means that it can be taught in very different ways. In a few words, Nei Gong could be defined as the philosophical art of change. Nei Gong is taught in a very systematic way within the Lotus Nei Gong School. Damo Mitchell has put together specific sets of Qi Gong and Dao Yin exercises to take beginners through the early stages of the process. These notably include Ji Ben Qi Gong (fundamentals of energy work) and Dragon Dao Yin (pulling and guiding moving sequences) exercises. By triggering reactions similar to Kriya in Yoga, these exercises help the students clear any major energetic and physical blockages. These energetic exercises are only used as tools to facilitate the Nei Gong process. At more advanced stages, the focus progressively shifts towards standing postures and sitting practices. What distinguishes Lotus Nei Gong from most other schools is the extensive use of transmission to help the students through the process. This is how Daoism was taught traditionally and Lotus Nei Gong is committed to this way of teaching. In 2011 Damo Mitchell wrote the book: Daoist Nei Gong – Philosophical Art of Change which was released through Singing Dragon. This book covers the basics and intermediate stages of Nei Gong training and gives an overview of the entire system. The internal methods taught within the Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts follow the process outlined in this book. Steve Galloway, of the Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts in the UK will be in Ottawa and will hold a Nei Gong Foundations weekend workshop. This workshop is suitable to both beginners and those who have attended previous Lotus Nei Gong workshops.

Visualization and Weight Loss Ottawa See The Pounds Drop Away!


he surprising fact is that many conditions can be improved by visualization and weight loss in Ottawa is one of them. It works like this: you keep a vision in your mind of how you want your body to look, and subconsciously you will begin acting in a way that will go in that direction. You become much more positive about your body, more accepting of your diet or fitness regime, and you will reach your weight goals more quickly and easily. Effecting change through visualizing desired outcomes has become more and more acceptable in recent years. Psychologists do not understand exactly how it works but clearly the mind and body are not as separate as we often believe. It seems that if you truly want something it is more likely to happen – provided of course that it is something that is possible, and within your control. Visualization helps us to truly want to lose weight by creating a clear and happy picture of our fitter bodies. Without this we can often put psychological traps in our own path. Many people who are overweight believe they cannot lose weight. Sometimes you may say it out loud, or

hear friends say it about themselves. For other people this belief stays in the subconscious. But it is sure that it influences our behaviour. Someone who believes it is impossible for her to lose weight will be constantly battling her own negativity when she is trying to diet. Her mind will be constantly telling her there is no point dieting, she cannot lose weight so she should just go ahead and eat everything she wants. Visualization is the strongest technique that we can use to overcome these negative thoughts and impulses. If you are plagued by negativity either from your own mind or from the reactions of friends and family to your diet, go ahead and visualize yourself at your desired weight as often as you can. It works on the same level as all those negative voices and can annihilate their influence like nothing else can. It is important to practice every day – morning and evening if you can. You just need to take a few minutes in a quiet place and keep an image in your mind of your body at its ideal weight. Some people can do this easily, others need some help. If you have a photograph of yourself at your ideal weight in the past, you may find it easier to look at that. Or use a photo from a magazine but cut off the person’s face. You need to visualize your own body, but thinner. You can also visualize from the inside. Close your eyes and let your awareness focus on a part of your body –

The Power Of Speaking Your Truth


earlessness through understanding one’s self is important to spiritual advancement. We all strive to be heard, to be understood and yet at the same time many of us try to say what we want to say, in a ‘nice’ way, so as not to hurt the other person’s feelings. It is impossible to speak our truth and not cause a stir in others. In the Law of Attraction, or “like attracts like,” whatever we think we create. We are now living in the time of magic. Science is showing us how that magic works. It shows that when we are clear and focused on what we want, without distraction, we harness the power to create. In order to do this we must know our selves. When we are clear of our direction, meaning we know what we are striving to achieve, we will go fearlessly into a long happy marriage, or a successful business enterprise. Selfknowledge creates a quiet confidence that transcends fear and worry. Emotional Healing through Intuitive Guidance will assist your journey out of the darkness of pain and confusion into the light of understanding. I remember in the days when I was a bridal designer, I had a photographer friend who brought the photos he took for my critique. The first time he brought a photo, I saw a flaw in the picture and told him so. He

left in a huff. He brought the photo redone, again I saw a flaw and told him so. When he brought the photo a third time, I asked him why he kept asking for my advice when he got mad when I told him the truth. His response was, “I know that you won’t b**l sh*t me”. This taught me that people will respect and listen to you when you overcome your fears of making others angry and are consistently truthful. Sonia Nadina Haynes is able to see into your past, present and future. Emotional Healer and Intuitive, she assists you to find the sweetness in life and to live your truth, fearlessly. Sonia Nadina has met and worked with clients from many walks of life, financial backgrounds and states of spiritual development. She is the catalyst for change.

ith stress so common in our lives today, more and more people are suffering from anxiety. Ongoing anxiety can interfere with day-to-day activities and relationships and when this happens, it may be diagnosed as Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety can develop from a combination of stress, personality, gender, and life events such as an illness or past troubles. Those suffering from generalized anxiety experience symptoms such as constant over-thinking and worrying, restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, and fatigue. Chronic anxiety can also lead to other health problems, such as headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, or teeth grinding. Of course, all of us worry from time to time about finances, family, health, and future, but it becomes a problem for us when we are thinking and worrying constantly or when it prevents us from relaxing or unwinding from our daily stresses. A big difference between Chinese medicine and Western medicine is the way in which disease is viewed- Chinese medicine sees health and disease as a continuum. Anxiety is seen as an imbalance or excess of the emotion “worry”. Worry is a normal emotional state which enables concentration, memorization, and focus, however when worry gets out of balance it leads to constant thinking, brooding, worrying, and anxiety. Anxiety can be caused by our lifestyle, if we have too many stressors or too often, or we can be prone to it due to a constitutional imbalance or weakness in the spleen, heart, lungs, or a combination of these organs. Excessive worry causes our qi-energy to get stuck and not flow properly. This, in turn, can injure the organs, causing additional symptoms, depending on the organ(s) affected. By redirecting the body’s energy flow with acupuncture, we can help the body to correct internal imbalances and treat the cause of anxiety symptoms. Acupuncture also works towards emotional balance,

Laura’s Numerology News For October 2015 How to calculate your personal monthly number for September Add the day of your birth to the month of your birth and then add the number 9 to this number. You always add double digits together in numerology to reduce to a single number. (Example - birthday of Jan. 5 – Jan. (1 month) 5 (day) added together = 6 then add this month’s number which 8=14. Then add 1+4=5. You would read point number 5 if this was your birthday. If you still have trouble, email me at 1.

I know that you are exhausted but you must force yourself to make a plan and get new seeds in the ground. Continue with the ditching and purging of anything that has to go. 2.

Life will force you to take care of lots of mind numbing detail in Oct. Try to remain calm and patient or you will be a raw nerve ending by the end of the month. Relationships and duty are the focus. This is a “we” month and not a “me” month.

hysically vital, mentally/emotionally awake, spiritually free? Would you like to drop the physical pain, mental/emotional baggage and/or spiritual sleep that your body and mind has harnessed for longer than you would like to remember? Would you like to see the patterns clearly that are impeding your ability to simply BE, enjoy and thrive?

HOW DO WE DO THIS? My experience of giving and receiving BodyTalk sessions over the last 7 years has shown that whatever is limiting our complete overall well-being, can and does shift when brought into awareness and changes are suggested to the way that our bodies currently organize their information. Once our stressors are identified (past and present), their affect on related parts, systems and mental patterns are released as communication pathways between these parts are restored. Our nervous system resets to encourage this process, while reestablishing the unique balance of our bodies and minds. BodyTalk helps to shift a wide range of residual patterns, including: digestive issues, depression, anxiety, immune system weakness, musculoskeletal issues, endocrine, sleep disorders, headaches, chronic fatigue, strong kundalini awakenings, various traumas that the body has retained. “Bodytalk sessions with Lori provide a powerful space to focus on energetic structures that are at play just below my awareness. Lori acts as an amplifier that helps me to see the patterns that are present in my body and mind and are influencing my choices, as well as, physical, emotional and mental states. Awareness, combined with the BodyTalk protocol, help to identify, shift and reorganize these longstanding energetic patterns. Things that were unconscious are now becoming conscious, which I am confident will lead to different choices in future.” - Ellen, Project Management Consultant, Ottawa If you would like to bring more clarity to and shift your ill-adapted health patterns, come in for a BodyTalk session and you will be amazed at what your body has to say, as well as how you feel following… physically vital, mentally/emotionally awake, spiritually free. For more information and/or to book a BodyTalk session, please visit Lori Hollohan’s website at: and/or, or email her Lori Hollohan MA is a Certified Advanced Parama BodyTalk Practitioner, Cranial Sacral, Lymphatic Drainage, Mindfulness Coach and Reiki II Practitioner and a Hatha Yoga Teacher. She is Author of the book: “Who We Are When We Thrive: Remembering Happiness and Rediscovering Health”, as well as other conscious media, such as the Guided Meditations that are on her website. Lori is able to provide insurance receipts for her clients accepted by most insurance companies.

hen I was a younger mother, I struggled unsuccessfully, (too anxious and angry), with trying to balance what I thought was good for my children’s health and what was offered by our culture. This included food, clothing, screens, music, sleep times, vaccinations, spirituality, education, medical care, sexual mores and holiday expectations--in no particular order. And research tells us that the upcoming generation of children will be the first who won’t live as long as their parents, directly because of this lifestyle. Now that my “children” are 24 and 28 and I have a seven year old grandson, I support them in better ways. First and foremost, I am learning to decrease the stress that I pass on to my family. It has required professional help to turn my negative patterns around and has been worth every hour and penny spent! Second is modelling. Openly sharing my struggles with my kids is better than expecting them to follow what I say and can’t yet do. Mindful compassion all around…and more smiling… Third is like-minded community for my family. Being with a loner parent led my children to abandon what was preached at home for what’s happening in the tribe. Can’t blame them! Now I create activities where children can explore spirituality, wild herbs, music, organic food, yoga and more with children of other families who want healthy balance. Better than fighting the culture. Fourth, I’m reaching out to the wider community, offering to teach a group on ADD in my grandson’s school, facilitating free Healing Circles in Carp and

any of us arrive in adulthood with a long list of pre-conceived notions about a variety of issues. Our beliefs are naturally formed as we grow up and spend time with our family, friends and go through the school system. These formative years will invariably leave a mark on us and these beliefs will act as our operating system, helping us process information that comes our way. Our beliefs will filter that information and our behavior will be a reflection of that reality. But what if these beliefs were incorrect right from the start? The sad truth is that we will continue to run our lives based on these false or incorrect assumptions until a new set of beliefs are introduced into our brains. I’ve heard it said time and time again that “money is the root of all evil” or that “if these people are rich it’s only because they screwed people over to get there” and “the earth is flat”. Really? Take a few minutes to write down some or all of the beliefs that guide your life and reflect objectively on them. Do they make any sense based on your current view of the world? Have you received new information that changes your view on things? Maybe it’s time to do some cleaning up, much like getting rid of viruses in your computer.

He is the author of “The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness”. He conducts workshops and courses on the subject of wealth management as well as designing meaningful and rewarding retirements.


y full time job this summer is organizing a big event in Ottawa City Hall – the 13th annual Friends for Peace Day. This has been my job for over a decade. This year the event was held in Jean Pigott Place, inside City Hall, on Saturday September 26 from 11am to 3.30pm. It all started on a bitterly cold winter evening years ago, as the Iraq war loomed. I received notice that a Peace Song Circle was happening on Parliament Hill. So I went, accompanied by my wife Carolyn and our dog. No-one else turned up. I remarked to Carolyn, “This is a good idea - it just needs to be organized.” She replied, “Let’s do it.” And so we did and created the nucleus for Friends for Peace Canada. Our mandate evolved so that we gave annual Peace Grants to local and international organizations making a real difference, as well as working in the city for environmental and social justice issues.

A sea of multi-coloured umbrellas on a rain swept morning welcomed all those gathered. As other peace protests joined us and sang “All Within Me Peaceful,” the crowd covered the grounds of Canada’s seat of government, all meditating at the end in total silence as the rain poured down on our heads. The pouring rain symbolized the tears of Iraqi children, my tears, your tears – transformed into hope through singing for peace with one another and experiencing deep peace. Every year since the relentless rain on Parliament Hill, the annual Friends for Peace Days have been memorable. We got rained and snowed on for several years on Parliament Hill, thunder and lightning at Alumni Park of Carleton University – before we moved inside to Jean Pigott Place in Ottawa City Hall.

The Science of Gratitude – Our Superpower By Rev. Roxanne Buckle


ratitude is one of the most powerful forces in the world. It is a spiritual tool at our disposal at all times. Through meaningful practice, we can use it to transform our life and manifest our desires. It’s our superpower and it’s free! In a famous study by Dr. Robert Emmons, people were divided into three groups. For ten weeks, group ~ Sunday Celebration at 10:30 a.m. one kept a gratitude journal, group two wrote down their hassles, and group three kept track of mundane ~ Our Kids in Unity program welcomes children ages 3-12 for a joy-filled learning events.

Lifting and Lightening


n October of last year i came to ottawa to offer yoga workshops. I came from an amazing spiritual retreat centre called Yasodhara Ashram, in BC. Swami Radha first started the ashram over 50 years ago. ‘Outreach’ is what we call it when we travel and bring workshops to other centres. We do this because we know that many people have busy lives and are sometimes not able to travel for a retreat. We also hope to reach people ‘out there’ who would benefit from visiting and learning here at Yasodhara Ashram. This is following in a tradition that Swami Radha began in 1963, traveling often by car from the Ashram to Florida, California, Virginia Beach, etc.. One morning when I had some time in between workshops, a friend who used to work in the Parliament Building, agreed to take me to see it. When we were about a block away, some police people started to yell and tell us to clear away. It took a few minutes for us to understand that there was an emergency, that someone had been killed just minutes before. Some people were simply standing around, until finally, we all got the message that we had to move, that the city was going to be locked down. That was the beginning of a traumatic day many people in Ottawa, as roads and schools were closed. Later that evening, I was scheduled to lead a workshop in Ottawa. I hoped people would be able to come. Some people who were registered called to let me know that they couldn’t get through because of the road closures. And some people did come. It was such a healing 2 hour workshop. We used the practice of the Divine Light Invocation to put all those who suffered from that violent incident, into the Light. Each one of the people in the workshop had their own story, their own reaction to the event: Some were under a lot of stress, some had experiences of giving to others/helping others, some faced confusing reactions in themselves, others had memories of past tramatic experiences....everyone was affected differently. The students were able to benefit from some new knowledge about themselves by writing key words and reflections and doing simple spiritual practices. Through this reflective process and  the spiritual practices I forgot the large conferenc-y space, and became aware of us as a group, held in our similar intention to lift the circumstances of a day in our lives, and to learn from it. From that lifted and lightened place, we wished the world well, sending out our caring far and wide. I’ve been living and teaching at the Ashram for 20 years now, and the above example is one of the many uplifting experiences I’ve had with Swami Radha’s teachings. One of her main directives for all of us has been: Reflect, Reflect, Reflect!


Swami Matananda, Senior Teacher at Yasodhara Ashram, will be visiting the Ottawa area to offer the following workshops. FINDING BALANCE IN TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY Thursday, October 29th, from 7-9pm at Wakefield Community Centre (38 Valley Dr) CONNECTING BODY, MIND & SPIRIT – NOURISHING THE WHOLE Friday, October 30th, from 7-9pm at Surround Circle Yoga, Southminster United Church, 15 Aylmer Ave

Swami Radha was a pioneer in the development of yoga in the West. Her approach is distinguished by her unique ability to synthesize yogic teachings and western psychology. Her major focus was to interpret the ancient yogic teachings of the East so that they could be understood and applied in the daily life of westerners. She set high ethical standards and encouraged students to develop quality in their lives and manifest their own ideals. Her teachings are based on building character as a foundation so that the energy gained through spiritual practice is directed wisely. I will be back in the Ottawa area this October, offering workshops from 2 hours to 8 hours in length. For more information, please visit ottawa Swami Matananda, Senior Teacher, Yasodhara Ashram

Our Journey as Healers Sri Chinmoy Answers


s sisters, we have been on our own individual journeys of wellbeing through the ancient wisdom and modern science of energy vibration for over 20 years. Reading, deciphering and living with (and at times without)  the joy that energy brings has inspired us to share our personal journeys with each other on deeper levels. During this process, we realized our purpose is to be in highest energetic service in what has become the Be Your Self Project.

Everyone has life lessons to learn. Having the courage to be vulnerable, giving yourself the permission to be your true and higher self and following your deepest soul path can be difficult at times. We are grateful to know there is a larger community eagerly waiting to connect. As we share the stories of our healing journey, people impart their energy experiences and wisdom graciously in return. The biggest theme is clear – there is incredible interest for self-awareness energy tools that are easy to understand and complement a modern lifestyle. The services and products of the Be Your Self Project were born out of this theme. We have created a number of interactive awareness tools that share the language of energy and SELF Being – AWAKE energy essentials, ALIVE energy practices and AHA! lifestyle wisdom. We believe everyone is a healer and our tools empower you to heal your body, mind, soul and spirit. To be launching our line of interactive energy cards – AWAKE, ALIVE and AHA! – at home in Ottawa will be a life changing moment for us. They are inspired from our deep love of nature and our region. Filled with original eye-catching photos and inspirational messages of energy and SELF Being, they are complemented by a line of energy wear and energy events.

We would love to see you at the I AM GENIE event with Deepak Chopra on Saturday, October 17, 2015 at that National Arts Centre.

Question: What causes fear and how can we develop more courage? SRI CHINMOY: Where there is love, real love, there can be no fear. Fear can come into existence for various reasons, but the main reason is our sense of separateness. The world around us very often frightens and threatens us. It causes unnecessary fear in our mind or in our existence because we have not yet established our oneness-reality with it. Fear exists just because we want to remain separated, consciously or unconsciously, from the all-pervading Reality which we eternally are. Fear can exist in all parts of our being—our body, mind and heart—but most of the time we experience fear in the mind. The doubtful, suspicious and sophisticated mind finds it difficult to identify itself or feel oneness with the rest of the world. Meditation is absolutely the best way to overcome fear. To conquer fear in the mind, one has to empty the mind daily of its doubt, obscurity, ignorance, suspicion and so forth. Early in the morning, for ten minutes or so, try not to have any thoughts—good or bad. If a thought comes, do not let it enter. Feel that your mind is like a vessel. First empty it, and then wait for peace and light to enter. This peace and light will dispel the darkness of fear. Ultimately, to free ourselves from fear, what we need is the glorious experience of our soul. Fear will leave us when we feel that we are destined to do something for God. The word “destined” brings boundless courage to the fore. Even if somebody is weak in nature, if he feels that he is destined to work for God, then immediately from the inner world heroism comes forward. He will fight against any obstruction with a strength and inner determination that will surprise him. Obstructions may come in the form of impurity, jealousy, fear and doubt, but the word “destined” will smash the pride of all these negative forces. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Close Your Eyes

By Kim O’Brien upa, co-founder of Wishingtree Yoga Centre, once asked me why I do yoga, what my goal is when I attend a class. I told her that when I come to my mat it’s to take a break, to get out of my head and to unwind. Yoga demands my full attention without being overly demanding. The simplest poses can be the most rewarding, just because I’m there and I’m doing it. When I am focused on the physical challenge of the poses and concentrating on nothing but posture and breathing I become wholly present in the moment and everything else slips away. “Close your eyes.” Rupa encourages us to do this as much as possible throughout our practice. At first I thought it was just to improve balance and increase the level of difficulty. I thought it’s not always easy, especially for standing poses, but with time and regular attendance I am gradually improving. I feel so proud when I can move or hold a pose in a way that once eluded me with my eyes shut. But as I continue to follow classes I am discovering that there is so much more to it than just a physical challenge. “Close your eyes.” I am listening to my breath. I sense the mat beneath me. I feel every one of my muscles shifting and contracting as I move. I visualize the stretch


in my mind’s eye. I trust my body to find its center of gravity and to tell me when I’ve gone far enough. I am aware of and connecting with my physical self entirely, allowing all my senses to ground me in the moment. I disappear inside my body and feel completely liberated. I’m beginning to understand that through this simple action Rupa is inspiring us to deepen our yoga experience and explore a world within ourselves. So “close your eyes.” I invite you to try it and see where it takes you. Rupa has been practicing Yoga since 1996. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom; her living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way.

tretching has traditionally been seen by many as that ‘chore’ we have to (should) do before and/or after we exercise, as it can help with muscle stiffness the following day. But stretching has another surprising benefit; it can actually promote muscle growth. Our muscles are encased in fascia – fibrous tissue that keeps them where they are supposed to be. If we work out a muscle properly, we are indeed increasing its size, but growth can be limited by surrounding fascia. Studies show that that best way to expand this connective tissue is by ‘facial stretching’, or what I like to call Yin Yoga. If you are an athlete the best time to do a Yin practice is immediately after your workout when the muscles are engorged with blood and pressing against the tissue. As we Yogi’s know, with a Yin practice we feel that deep stretching sensation, which at first may be on the edge of unpleasant but then once we settle in, oh boy does it feel great! Add into this our deep nourishing breath and clearing meditative state of mind, who knows what else besides our muscles can grow?
