So Grateful


would like to think that we are celebrating Thanksgiving every day. Why wait until the second Monday in October to recognize the abundance in your life? You got up today and breathed, so at least be thankful for that. We have friends and family, food on the table, roof over our heads... Everyday blessings. Everyday grateful. But, are you grateful? Does quiet gratitude count? Let everyone know. You can’t say Thank You enough. I love this Dalai Lama quote: “If there’s only one prayer to say, say Thank You”. And, remember to thank those people and life events that aren’t as easily recognizable as blessings. They make us stronger, challenge us, give us perspective and we are wiser because of them. There is a great group of individuals who work behind the scenes of Tone, making this magazine a reality. So very grateful for, Michael ‘Lemmy’ Monner, publisher Julie Tierney, administration Moira Hutchinson, Board Chair & President, from Wellness with Moira Tara Vicckies, Director (Finance), CPA and Yoga Professional Heather Garrod, Director, from Planet Botanix Bonnie-Jean Stacey, Director, from Take Charge Tea Jacqueline Richards, Director, Mortgage and Yoga Professional Daniel Roy, Director, from Praxis Wealth Management

Overcoming Shyness


ommunicating with people you don’t know that well, whether they’re clients or co-workers, can be stressful. This is especially true if you happen to be shy. But, there’s really nothing to worry about. Being shy or introverted won’t stop you from making connections (and maybe even friends) at work. By following these tips, opening up to the people you interact with will be easier than ever before. Start Small If you’re shy, it can be difficult to “jump right in” and start networking with strangers. So, start out by practicing with close friends and family members. Interacting with people you already know takes away the element of not knowing the other person. This makes the conversation less tense. Not only that, positive interactions with friends and family helps build your confidence and makes future conversations with people you don’t know a more pleasurable experience. Stay Confident Projecting yourself as a confident person goes a long way toward having positive interactions. If you seem confident in yourself, it’s easier for your peers to view you as someone who knows what they’re talking about. On the other hand, if people view you as apologetic or introverted, it’s generally harder to get noticed. Seize Opportunities Any time a someone asks you for help or tries to engage you in conversation, you have the opportunity to get to know this person a wee bit better. Rather than dismissing him (or her) or giving a one-word response, it’s best to say something that keeps the conversation going. If you’re not comfortable talking about your personal life, keep the conversation focused on workrelated or more generic topics instead. Help Others Helping people out is a sure way to leave them with a good impression. If you have a particular skill which is helpful to your peers, let them know that you are readily available to provide assistance. Each time you help with a project, it lets people know that they can count on you in the future. Lending a hand to your peers also helps to ensure that they’ll have no problem reciprocating, if and when the time comes.

Take Risks It’s difficult for some people to take risks in their social life, especially people who are introverted. The fear of being turned down or getting a negative response is enough to keep most people from putting themselves out there. But, if you can get over this fear of rejection, you will open yourself up to all sorts of new networking and connecting opportunities. You will also be better prepared for future conversations with strangers, such as customers or contractors. Whether at work or in your personal life, it’s important to open up to and communicate with people. If you’re the type to keep to yourself, don’t let that keep you from taking advantage of every opportunity. Remember, working to overcome this shyness has a big impact on your career and your future.

Evolved - Really? Written by Alexis Nicol

It’s 5:30 a.m. Friday, July 8th, 2016. Waking up this morning I moved seamlessly into meditation. I was quickly transported to the many situations where there is so much ignorance and violence. We claim to be evolved. We have the capacity to create a loving world. There are no excuses! Where Love is absent we are drained of the most power force – the only One that can heal and create miracles. I felt myself shouting emphatically to anyone that would listen, wanting to empower You/Me/ Them. “Listen! Understand! Realize! Comprehend! Know! Believe! Trust!” Creation, AKA LOVE has no judgement or limits. Look at the flowers and birds, each different and beautiful in their own way. Why can’t we see that humans are the same – beautifully unique in design? We weren’t created to be the same, we were created to explore and embrace diversity. Everyone and everything is here to serve – each other. If we use Pure Love as the power that propels our lives then Joy and inclusion will become the norm. Please see all life through the eye of your Heart, your Soul and not through the eyes of judgement. It’s possible to see everyone as true beings of light not separate dark shadows. Each one of us shines from the same Pure, Divine light.

It really is as easy as allowing the All-Powerful energy of Love to guide us moment by moment, decision by decision in our daily lives – in everything we say and do. Fear creates anger and vice-versa. It places a wall before us. If we ever hope to break down these walls we must use the most powerful weapon of all – LOVE! Then we will enjoy everlasting healing and all the wealth that comes with it. May the light of Pure Divine Love guide Us All! Alexis believes in a Wholistic approach to healing mind, body and soul.

LOVE “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” - Martin Luther King Jr.


he journey of life can be difficult. We do our best, but no matter what, we’re going to mess our life up at times, if even just a little. We say the wrong words and we make the wrong decisions. We do our best, but we all know that at times we do react in ways that are not optimal. I believe that we are learning in this great school of life and that every decision, action and every word teaches us something, carries a message, a gift to us, as to what made us make a decision. We need to decipher what the message is inside the reaction. Perhaps one of the most important lessons we will learn is that we have a lot of power. That we have the power to decide, and to act or speak out, either out of an egocentric realm or out of kindness and understanding of others. But it all begins with ourselves. Who am I? What makes me react within myself? What pain do I carry from the past? And what family history do I carry within my very own being, a history perhaps that lives at the very core of my reactions? The journey of self-understanding is profound. I remember times when I felt like I had it all under control. In retrospect I smile as I realise that it was based on a rather shallow perspective. This journey of self understanding is deep, and love cannot truly be expressed if we don’t heal ourselves, if we don’t even know what drives our impulses, if we don’t know who we are. We are complex beings. Yet we can heal, we can grow, if we shed light on our very own life path. In our hypnosis sessions, we come to understand, heal or release our past, not through the bypassing of it, but by going through it, acknowledging it, facing our symptoms and feelings, for they are gifts, doorways into healing, and letting them be transformed and freed. The more we heal ourselves, the more love and compassion can shine. We come to respect ourselves and others. For we all have a path, a story and the capacity to truly love.

In the end we come to grasp that it is not just about us; it is about the collective, and universal aspects of our humanity. That is where love truly shines – in our oneness with all.

To Live In Highest Expression

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within. he Highest Expression of an individual is that individual’s demonstration of their greatest possible alignment with God in a given moment. To live each day from our Highest Expression is to commit to choosing our intent and consent to be aligned with the Law of One, and choosing our authority to be our Highest Source. We know that only God can support and guide us in truth. The ego never will. Our Highest Expression, however, can get sidetracked with negative ego, or we can feel that our Highest Expression gets compromised with all that gets thrown at us day by day. Let’s first acknowledge though that we are each doing the very best that we know: in each moment we hold a state of consciousness that is comprised of many influences and our choices are based on that. This is true even when, in hindsight, we tell ourselves that we knew better but didn’t make the highest choice. But we didn’t for some reason. Can we be gentle with ourselves anyway? We’re allowed to make mistakes so to speak. We can stop feeding the negative alien agenda through self-victimization and open a loving heart to ourselves, witness our choice and learn. Yes, it is challenging to be human right now and we each deserve self-validation and self-acceptance when we get up each day and put forth genuine effort and

The Soul of Health and Happiness ©Michele St.Amour, September 2016


India and learned hidden truths. This created a strong foundation for me to embrace ancient initiate teachings during ten years of continuous training. Today, at the Chakaura Institute of Soul, I practice and teach these ancient methods, previously the domain of only mystics and sages. Chakaura™ is one of the few schools in the world that offers these teachings, expanding the human potential movement to encompass limitless possibilities. Perfect health can exist only in a body fully connected with its life source, its soul.

erfect health and lasting happiness are rooted in our soul source: our source of life. These positive mind and body states indicate a strong, flowing, empowered soul connection, the ever-living immortal self that can never die but can only be transformed. We nourish a healthy soul connection with beneficial, love-based emotions, which result from sustained positive thinking. Soul health energizes us with love energy: the energy of the soul. It’s why we are so For more information, please go to obsessed with everything concerning our ideas about or call us at 613-306-0130. Our Chakaura™ programs love. All of the pills we take, the treatments we undergo, begin in October & November 2016. and the lifestyle changes we make represent our unconscious attempt to unblock the constricted pathways of soul energy: love. If we are unable to change or heal, this reveals our soul detachment. Ill health is a sign of soul Intuition Initiation loss, and physical death is a complete detachment of the soul, our source of Transformation! Education Liberation life. What creates soul loss, as defined by my aboriginal ancestors? Prolonged patterns of negative thinking, continued stress, and unsustainable and unconstructive lifestyle habits provide the seeds of our discontent, unhappiness, and ill health, leading to soul loss. These unhealthy habits block our connection to the positive love energy, or life force, of the soul. The soul then begins to detach itself from its physical host. Soul loss can occur in bits and pieces during one’s life, or the effect can be cumulative, so that in an accident or after we experience a life trauma, the soul gets disconnected. Soul loss can be likened to living with an incurable disability. My life changed when I discovered Chakaura Balancing™. This initiation reclaims the life force of the soul by reattaching it and returning its flow to the body. The body and the soul must be structurally aligned in order to flow fully with love energy. With this soul energy, I discovered the secret ingredient in miracles. Earlier in life, I had studied most of the popular modalities available, but something was always missing. I studied with a Mayan medicine woman, then went to

Principle Instructor / Certified Financial Planner


ne of the many questions I ask my coaching clients as we work through various retirement planning issues is on their degree of “self-directedness”. It’s a simple issue really but not everybody gets it. Being selfdirected means that you make decisions for yourself most of the time. You decide for yourself what activities you would like to do and when you would like to do them. Take a moment and think about your own personal situation. Is it you who makes the plans or are you most likely to go along with the plans that others have put together? In many relationships including my own, my spouse is “in charge” of our social and vacation calendar. Although she does this for us, we do discuss the events that we would like to go to as a family, as a couple and as individuals. There is input from both of us and it generally works out very well. Being self-directed ensures that you get to do the things that are important to you. If you never have this opportunity, this can lead to a feeling of frustration at not being able to express your desires openly. I have had to work on this over the years and I can assure you that it feels much better once you are able to have input into your own life. Pause for a moment and ask yourself this question: “Do I make decisions for myself?” If not, then may I suggest that you start today in applying this simple notion. Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute. He is a Certified Retirement Coach, Certified Financial Planner as well as public speaker. He is the author of “The Essential Guide to Retirement Readiness”. He conducts workshops and courses on the subject of winning the game of wealth creation.


Sri Chinmoy Answers Question: Can meditation protect us from all the injustice we experience in life?

SRI CHINMOY: Peace is the most effective weapon with which to conquer injustice. When you pray and meditate your whole being becomes flooded with peace. This is not something imaginary. You can feel peace; you can swim in the sea of peace. Then no matter what other people do, you will just feel that they are your own children playing in front of you. You will say, “These are all children. What more can I expect from them?” But right now, because they are grown up in terms of years, you become angry and upset instead. If you pray and meditate regularly, you will soon feel that your peace is infinitely stronger, more fulfilling and more energising than the unfortunate situation that they create. When you have to defend yourself or protect yourself, always try to use a higher weapon. If people say something and you retaliate on the same level, there will be no end to it. Again, if you simply swallow your anger, they will continue to take advantage of you. But when they see and feel tremendous inner peace in you, which you can get from your meditation, they will see something in you that can never be conquered. They will see a change in you, and this change will not only puzzle them but also threaten and frighten them. They will feel that their weapons are useless. If you pray and meditate regularly, you will soon feel that your peace is infinitely stronger, more fulfilling and more energising than the unfortunate situations that others create. Your inner peace can easily devour the irritation caused by others because the power of inner peace is infinitely more solid and concrete than any outer disturbance anybody can create on earth. Unless and until we have peace deep within us, we can never hope to have peace in the outer world. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Caught in Fight or Flight? Here’s how to ease out of the stress and anxiety hamster wheel. North America seems to be in an epidemic! The demands of work and family life, busy days and not enough time for self-nurturing are allowing people to spin out of control. And the end result? Adrenal fatigue, insomnia, headaches, and a host of other mental and physical health concerns. But what’s a body to do? Fortunately, there are a number of natural options available. Both herbs and their concentrated counterparts, essential oils, have proven invaluable when it comes to supporting the nervous system. Oatstraw is a yummy little herb that is a nervine. This means it calms down the whole nervous system and helps promote a restful sleep. Lavender is an antidepressant and can help lessen insomnia. Lemon balm is a prolific little herb assisting with stress and anxiety. P.S. we carry a tea combining all three. Insomniacs swear by it! Believe it or not, catnip is very effective in humans as a remedy for nervous tension. A tea or soak in the tub

before bed will set the tone for a peaceful, restful, healing night’s sleep, as will vetiver, valerian and a host of other herbs/essential oil blends. Herbs in the bath can also soothe sore muscles brought on by tension during the day. Marjoram, rosemary, sage, comfrey, (so does peppermint, but it is energizing, so best to use in the morning) are wonderful tub companions. There are a variety of other healing plants one might use at any given time, but too many to list here. I also want to point out the importance of taking moments every single day just for you. Whether it is a walk in nature, deep breathing exercises, time for meditation or positive affirmations (there is a lot on-line, as well as phone apps that are free-try “Calm”, Headspace”, or “IshaKriya” to get an idea of what appeals to you) or a yoga class, any of these practices will help you stay calm and centred when you feel like you are in the middle of chaos. ©2016 Heather Garrod is a Certified Aromatherapist and owner of Planet Botanix, 301 Bank between Maclaren and Somerset.

Pathwork: Becoming Enlivened Through Feeling Fully by Mary Anne Bourque


or a good part of my life, I had avoided my fears and, with practice, had created a calm, cool, collected outer demeanor. What I became aware of as I learned to feel my feelings more fully, was how much of my energy this outer way of being took and how, just under the surface, I still had a constant nervous hum. The Open Lecture Discussion evenings this year will focus on Creative Emptiness. It may seem strange to think of emptiness as creative since we spend so much of our free time being busy. As a society, we have an avoidance of silence and emptiness; a fear that if we go into this empty space inside there will be nothing. Pathwork challenges this view of life and self and guides us into the exploration of this creative inner world. It’s clear this is not easy at the beginning but with support from Spirit and like-minded people we begin to know a way of being that has ease and freedom, releasing the fears and anxiety that have held us captive In our first evening together we will be learning from Lecture 191: Inner and Outer Experience. It explores a new understanding of our inner experience and our outer experience of life from the perspective of our feelings and how blocking our feelings of fear leads to all our feelings being dulled or becoming non-existent. This of course includes the feelings we really want to live by: bliss, joy, pleasure, love, peace. The ease of life and flow are always just beyond our reach. Or so we think. “The lack of feelings deadens all of life…To savour life in its fullest, the defense against feelings must be eliminated. The fear of unpleasurable, painful feelings must be gone through.” It’s a whole new way to be and one that creates the freedom to live in the moment. Rather than have the fear hold us hostage, we move through our fears into living from our creative, intuitive loving self, into the flow of life.

“So we are dealing basically with the fear of pain. When the fear is given up or, rather, gone into, the pain can be experienced. And only then will the pain genuinely dissolve, and you will have mastered a slice of life that you no longer need to avoid.” “Experience of bliss, pleasure, joy, peace can exist only in a fearless soul. The creativity that is your full potential, self-expression and expansion of your spiritual being can exist only when you are fearless and relaxed”. The effort to turn toward your feelings is well worth the reward of living a fuller life. Join us in exploring this aspect of living in Creative Emptiness.

Reiki Heals the Inner Child

Level 2 class was her turning point: she recounts running up the stairs of her home exclaiming to her husband, “I finally know what I want to do when I grow up!” The rest is history and Margie is now a Reiki Master Teacher with an evolving practice. Margie’s strength is working with clients to draw out and heal adult “inner child” issues gently and accurately. She accomplishes this by being an open channel for Angels’ messages and using Reiki as her energy healing modality. “During formative years, negative experiences can leave harsh imprints or limited beliefs in a child,” she says. “I’ll often connect with that inner child that doesn’t feel safe, loved, or good enough and work with them.” Through Reiki, the practitioner can go into an adult’s past and heal the root of the hurting inner child. Margie encourages her client to connect with that inner child and facilitates energetic healing for the “trapped child” within the adult. Client Cammie Ritchie says, “Margie is phenomenal and very gentle. She brought me down to when I was three-years old and together we identified an issue and cleared it out”. Reiki and Angels have also helped Margie self-heal and she proudly declares she is now free of medications that treated past anxiety attacks and fibromyalgia.

By Germaine De Peralta first met Margie “Sparkles” Hewitt at a popular Ottawa Forgiveness Circle where I went to release my emotions and forgive someone who had hurt me. As I wept during the ceremony, a spritely woman approached me and hugged me firmly with the comforting warmth of a mother. “Inner child, inner child,” she whispered reassuringly, hugging and rocking me and sprinkling some words of wisdom into my heart. She did not let up until my tears abated and I was smiling again. Fast forward a couple of years later and Margie welcomes me into her cozy home-based healing room. Wooden panelled walls are decorated with angel figures, flowers and other colourful décor reflecting her upbeat personality. I am getting flashbacks of childhood as she invites me to sit in her “hug chair” for a chat. Margie, a former communications professional relates how Reiki “found her” and led her to become a Usui-Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher. Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of hands-on healing that involves the Reiki practitioner channeling universal life force energy to their clients to facilitate healing for issues ranging from physical ailments to psychoemotional and spiritual wounds. Margie had seen a Holographic Usui-Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher on JenZen’s TV show and intuition Contact Margie Hewitt at or prodded her to enroll in Reiki Level 1 class.

The Willpower to Quit Smoking By Luke Michael Howard


f you're a smoker in Ottawa you want to quit smoking and anticipate eagerly the day you can do so. But, still, sometimes it seems an impossible task. You try and try and then still get caught in the same grip of addiction. You want to succeed but find yourself, too often, standing in the same place as you were before. This is not just the case for a few smokers, it is the case with just about every smoker. Smokers try hard to quit but the dependence on nicotine can be too strong. It is a deadly drug with powerful addictive powers. The fortunate thing is that thousands of people are successfully escaping the grip of nicotine. Their determination to quit has won out over the horrible addiction. You can follow their footsteps too: You need to fulfill the commitment you have made with yourself and with those close to you. The first step is to alter your thinking and become and optimist. You

must change your habits, meaning any of the habits that lead you to smoke. You need to think of all the good reasons to quit, but only those that make sense to you, personally, and think how much better your life would be if you quit smoking, but use specific reasons. Write down the reasons you started smoking and the reasons you want to quit. Again, these must be your own reasons! Do not just use the reasons from anti-smoking ads you see on television or reasons others have used, they will not work unless they are reasons to which you are emotionally attached. This will give you strength. If you properly condition yourself mentally then you can certainly realize the commitment you have made to yourself. People are generally scared of the withdrawal effects without giving thought to the long term benefits of quitting. They never think that the pleasure, comfort and enjoyment that they are getting from smoking is short term. These feelings exist at a subconscious level. Studies say that we experience 60,000 thoughts a day, and unfortunately when you are scared of quitting smoking a high percentage of those thoughts can be negative.


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

Dr. Luke Michael Howard, PhD

Dr. Luke, owner of the LUKEnosis Complete Mind Therapy organization, is a Smoking Cessation Specialist, has a Masters degree in Hypnotherapy as well as a Doctorate in Psychology. Dr. Luke has been studying Hypnosis for over 16 years now and has trained all over the world. After over a decade, Dr. Luke is still the youngest person


certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. Dr. Luke has been featured in all forms of media such as Tone Magazine, CTV Morning Live, and CBC Radio. He has developed an advanced hypnotherapy technique that turns weak willed smokers into empowered Non-Smokers in just one hour. He says “This technique is so powerful we are achieving a 95% success rate. This is incredible when you think that patches are only about 16% successful. We are so confident in the success of this treatment that we offer a free backup session for the remaining 5%. In fact, if after the session any one should need an extra session, it’s theirs, FREE OF CHARGE.” Dr. Luke explains, “This powerful breakthrough technique combines the latest discoveries in hypnosis and the new science of personal achievement known as Neuro Linguistic

Programming. This takes the power of hypnosis to a new level in helping people take back control of their lives.” Many local doctors are so impressed by the power of hypnosis that they are now referring many of their patients to Dr. Luke for his Accelerated Change Stop Smoking Programme. Dr. Luke says, “I am currently building a Doctors Referral Network to keep local GP’s informed of my developments and to keep them informed of their patients’ progress. Many celebrities, professional business people, nurses and housewives have benefited from stopping smoking with hypnosis, SO CAN YOU! The good news is that this incredible method of stopping smoking is available locally. The bad news there usually is a two or three week waiting list for an appointment – but even the medical profession believes it’s worth waiting for.

October 2016

“I walked out a nonsmoker!” Caroline had been a smoker for the majority of her lifenearly 30 YEARS! She had tried every type of stop-smoking aid possible, tried using ‘will power’ to quit cold turkey but to no avail-that is until she met Dr. Luke. She recently sent him this follow up email: “I promise I will totally do a video testimonial for you in the future though, as the hypnosis TOTALLY worked...not only have I not smoked...I have not even WANTED to!!! It really is amazing” Check out more testimonial videos on: and you can contact Dr. Luke at LUKEnosis to arrange an appointment at 613-8785874.

Bioflex Ottawa Laser Rehabilitation


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

The use of BioFlex is new to Ottawa. Only a handful of laser therapy clinics in the city are currently using it. Ottawa Laser Rehabilitation physiotherapy and chiropractic’s clinics are located in Kanata, Bells Corner, Carling/Fisher and Orleans Despite the treatment system’s novelty, the benefits that this kind of therapy brings are numerous and sure to draw in many who are suffering from both new injuries and chronic pain. Typically, 8-24 laser therapy treatments of 30-60 minutes in duration are required for complete healing, but it depends entirely on each individual’s response to the treatment. While other conventional treatments for pain aim to relieve symptoms, laser therapy targets the direct source of pain at its site, bringing long lasting comfort and freedom. Visit Ottawa Laser Rehabilitation website to learn more and contact Lindsay Mullen today to start on your path towards a pain-free life. 613-203-3138

TCM Recommendations During Fall By Steve Ryu, R.TCMP, R.Ac


all is a transition time from summer to winter, when crops reach maturity and nature begins to draw inward in preparation for winter. Much in the way that nature is changing, so should we begin to make changes to our own habits. Synchronizing our habits and our lifestyle with seasonal changes can lead to a healthier transition and fewer seasonal illnesses in the winter months. To support our body’s movement towards yin, autumn is a time when we should: 1. Dress for the weather! The body’s inward movement of energy means that we need extra layers of clothes to maintain warmth. 2. Exercise more moderately. Vigorous exercise brings energy to the surface and opens the pores, making us more vulnerable to the elements. Our body is also naturally less flexible in the winter, take care not to stretch as deeply in the winter months to prevent injuries. Gentle, moderate exercise is important to keep our body limber and to counter the brittleness of winter. 3. Rise later in the mornings. 4. Because autumn is a time of collection, calm and focus, it is a natural time for study.

5. Fall foods should be heartier in both flavour and type and prepared using cooking methods that are more warming. Eat less raw foods because their cold nature can be hard on digestion in the winter, especially for those with weak constitutions. The organs associated with fall are the lungs and the large intestine. In order to promote healthy lung and colon functioning, fall is a good time to focus actions on cleansing and protecting the lungs and the colon. Fortifying the lungs and the skin and mucous membranes protects against viruses and bacteria that lead to the colds and flus that are common ailments in the winter months.

Message by Dr. Mikao Usui Reiki healing for humankind’s evolutionary crisis


ever has humanity been so overwhelmed by outside forces. These energies attach themselves to every cell of your body and need help untangling from your energetic systems. Fear, stress, anger and anxiety are symptomatic of bombardments on the neural system, which challenges inner discovery and development. It is absolutely no surprise that humanity’s consciousness is feeling overwhelmed. Your body’s systems are being exhausted with a barrage of constant electromagnetic energy. The body cannot maintain this much stress and function optimally. This is a call to action. You are all One Cosmic Sentient Being breathing the same Life Force and sharing the same energetic vibrations upon this beauteous planet. It is now the time to release the massive amounts of pent up negative and harmful energy. A prudent first step is finding an experienced healing practitioner. Reiki is a beautiful and gentle, dynamically

vibrant healing instrument. Not only does it work on all of the human aspects: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual; it goes much deeper. It is a gateway into the realms of spontaneous healing. It is a momentous energy that calls upon Existence Itself as Its Source. The Reiki Master is the gatekeeper and is the active receptor of the universal cues given, in order to attain the highest healing for the recipient. The Reiki Symbols are entities unto themselves which are made available for the Good of Humanity. Finding the correct Reiki Master for you is key, as they are wide-ranging in their talents and abilities. Reiki helps with: relaxation, balancing body/ chakras, victim mentality, trust blockages, unexplained fatigue, Soul trauma and other issues which no longer serve your highest good. This is your life. How will you choose to live it? The choice has ever been yours. My name is Jazz (Jacinthe) and I am a Holographic Usui Reiki Master Teacher Trainer. Holographic means I tap into the client’s energy field, sense where there are imbalances, and help the body to remember its original blueprint for health and wholeness. Crystals, tarot and oracle cards are often used during my sessions in order to help us get a deeper understanding of the issues at hand. Spirit guides the session and lets me know what is needed. I follow the energy wherever it leads, with the aim of releasing that which needs to be released. This may mean journeying into your childhood, the cellular level, other lifetimes/dimensions/planets, or speaking with deceased loves ones, animals, angels, guides or ascended masters. I may even venture into the cosmos and retrieve the knowledge of your sacred cosmic contract, which is the deeper meaning of why you are here on Earth. Each session is absolutely unique and a deeply sacred ceremony. I never know where your soul will guide us. Reiki is my life’s passion and it is my joy and honor to be a spiritual midwife for those seeking to help themselves. I am a healer of healers. If you are struggling with an issue, feeling overwhelmed or would simply like to relax and rebalance, I am here for you.

Silence - the Yasoja Sutra


en days before the rainy season retreat Yosaja and his five hundred monks journeyed to where the Buddha held his three month retreat. They arrived in a boisterous way to greet the monks there with loud greetings and lots of talking. The Buddha heard this uproar and asked his faithful attendant Ananda, “What is that noise?” Ananda replied that the Venerable Yasoja and his followers had arrived and were greeting the resident monks. The Buddha asked for them to come to him, so he could send them away and dismiss them for their noise. The five hundred monks and their leader bowed to the Buddha and left the rainy season retreat in Jetta Park. They walked for many days to the east side of Koshala and arrived at the Vaggamuda River. Once there, they built small huts to begin their own rainy season retreat. Yasoja addressed his followers and told them that the Buddha sent them away out of compassion, so that they would practice deeply. All the monks saw this as true and practiced very seriously to show the Buddha their worth. The majority of them realized levels of enlightenment during their three month retreat. The Buddha’s rainy season had also finished and he remarked to Ananda that he could discern the energy of goodness and light emanating

He realized that Yasoja and his five hundred monks had achieved something very deep and sent them an invitation to join him. They arrived quietly in the evening after many days of silent walking to find the Buddha sitting in silence, in a state of concentration called imperturbability – free and solid. When they saw this, they decided as one body to sit like that with the Buddha and entered the same state of silent imperturbability. Ananda approached the Buddha during the three watches of the night and asked him to address the monks. The Buddha remained silent. After the third reminder he said, “Ananda, you did not know what was going on…..I was sitting in a state of imperturbability and all the monks did the same and were not disturbed by anything at all.” In this deep unshakable silence the communication between the Buddha and Yasoja’s five hundred monks was perfect so that a deep transmission of insight, freedom and joy went to them.

BodyTalk: Elevate Your Body’s Vibrational Frequency


cience has shown that the trillions of cells in our bodies and our overall body emits a frequency that is indicative of the state of our overall health and wellbeing. When that frequency slows down and drops below the normal range (62-72 MHz), disease develops and eventually death occurs.

So how can we elevate our vibrational frequency to reflect our current desired health outcomes? According to cellular biologist, Dr. Bruce Lipton, negative habit patterns and belief systems rigidify our cell membranes (that allow our body’s nourishment in and out!). Releasing and integrating these patterns enables the membranes to be more porous, receive more nutrients/higher energy frequencies, and therefore vibrate more quickly to enhance our well-being. (You may have noticed that when you stay stuck in a negative thought space, you become physically sick!) Shifting charged active memories, traumas, emotions, belief systems, etc., that create and influence detrimental health patterns, can be facilitated via energy therapies like the BodyTalk System. BodyTalk is able to bring these patterns into awareness and make suggestions to change the way that the body organizes its physical information around them. It then facilitates the movement of these stuck, lower density frequencies at the cellular level to influence health on all levels.


Jaya, Thank you for yesterday’s session. You have a knack of articulating to me what is happening underneath my skin.

Tibetan Physician Treats Patients in Ottawa


world-travelling doctor of Tibetan medicine, called an Emchi, visits Ottawa for his monthly clinic where patients receive a mix of herbal treatments, acupuncture and massage for a wide array of conditions. The Emchi, named Shakya Dorje, is the general practitioner for 75 per cent of his patients throughout North America and has held a practice in Ottawa for 20 years. Shakya Dorje owns and operates his own herb making facility using ingredients harvested in the foothills and valleys of northern India. It’s a quality that allows him to develop specialized medicines for unique cases including one for brain tumours. “In Tibetan medicine, we’re meant to consider the whole of the individual,” Emchi Shakya Dorje said. “Even if a person has a particular complaint, we still look at the whole of their organism and history and try to find how the whole of the being got to this point.” One of the defining differences between western and Tibetan medicine is the former will analyze problems with the intent to treat a symptom whereas what Shakya Dorje practices aims to address the root causes of a condition with the goal of continual progress. “In modern western medicine there is a lot of focus on looking for a pathogen and attacking it or trying to suppress some sort of function,” Shakya Dorje said. “In Tibetan

medicine, the organism is not the enemy, it’s not something to attack, you’re trying to bring the patient to some level of health by changing the way the body functions.” Shakya’s journey to becoming an Emchi began by translating for the Buddhist priest and doctor Trogawa Rinpoche on speaking tours throughout India, Europe and North America through the 1980s. Picking wild growth plants with medicinal properties in the Indian regions of Ladakh and Dharmsala, undergoing holistic diagnosis and pharmaceutical exams and learning a unique method of taking the pulse that Tibetan medicine is renowned for were all part of Shakya Dorje’s medical training. He received his license in Tibetan medicine from the Chagpori School in 1990, though he had practiced as an apprentice alongside his masters on three continents for some years prior. Emchi Shakya Dorje views Tibetan medicine not as an alternative, but as part of the puzzle for improving human health. “The medical system we have enables us to deal with certain things, such as infections and certain acute conditions. It does well with those, it does not do so well with more generalized conditions,” Shakya Dorje said. Though he treats nearly every health issue he encounters, including having success with childhood cancers, Shakya finds high blood pressure arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue to be the most common cases he sees.; website:

LET GO and LET GOD... what exactly does that mean? By Barbara Simpson


o many times I have heard the words Let go and let God, and for so long I believed it to mean turning my life over to an external omnipresence that would ‘take care of my life for me’, putting everything in place... surrendering to a greater force Outside of myself. However, lately, I’ve come to regard it as having a very different meaning. Letting go to me means letting go of the hold we have on life, the grip on the what and how we have come to define ourselves, of the mental images & understanding, that keeps us secure in the world. It’s ‘Letting go’ of what I term as the stagnant flow of energy, letting go of the resistance to change, and opening to becoming something or someone new. It doesn’t need to be scary, in fact, it’s quite liberating. Oh, there IS a greater force out there alright... it’s a constant flow of energy, that’s Everywhere, in Everything, in Everyone & is Universal. It’s there just waiting to be tapped into & brought into your life. It’s LIFE itself! And yet, it’s not just ‘out there’, it’s inside of us, and I bet the majority of us here are so stuck in our heads (our thoughts) that we really have no idea what it feels like to be truly alive, aligned & on purpose. Surrendering to the greater force doesn’t have to mean giving away a part of ourselves, and losing means FINDING ourselves! It means surrendering our minds, our doctrines, our belief systems & opening ourselves to Possibilities. It means breaking free of our belief systems, our perceptions and judgements of others, & of ourselves. It means letting go of expectations we have on the world and on ourselves. It means....MOVING BEYOND FEAR.. Fear happens when we stop listening within, & pay too much attention outside of us, and allow our minds to be our driving force.. When we stop loving ourselves, we disconnect from ‘us’, from Source, from who we truly are... pure LOVE with no boundaries. Sit with this for a moment…If we are a spark of Source incarnate, & source is Divine, is God, & God is Love, then we are pure unconditional love at our core. If I Am a spark of Source, then we all are, and at our core, I am you, and you are me.

I express through you, and you express through me. I am not lesser or better than you, and you are not lesser or better than me. I am not separate from you, and you are not separate from me. I therefore do not need to FEAR You... For you are me. I need only Love me, and I automatically Love you. There is only to fully express the truth of who you are through your personality, that lays hidden beneath FEAR, and to get out of your mind and into your core into your passion. Fear and the need to control creates blockages to our natural flow, to allowing ourselves to connect and express our highest most magnificent expression of our core - God/Source. When we step out of Fear, and step out of our minds & into our heart, we become fully present in the moment and able to move to the place of ‘observer’ to the place of Compassion & Gratitude for everything & everyone. When we see only beauty within & value ourselves, then we see only beauty in everyone and everything else. We express the best part of ourselves and life flows… Cherishing self comes first, love of others is the inevitable outcome So, I say to you Let Go...& Let GOD......Out!! SHINE! ONLY then will you be living Heaven on Earth.

Clearing The Stigma Around Money


ealth is subjective. The amount of money we make to feel wealthy is based on the things that are important to us. How does one perceive wealth? In different cultures, wealth is defined through the acquisition of various things. Money is modern society’s yardstick for wealth. A cow, some cowry shells or land defines different individual’s view of wealth. Wealth is a state of mind as opposed to an amount of money. The ability to have one’s basic needs met is the first step towards the attainment of wealth.  To many, money is poison with the power to seduce a good person down a negative path. But, does money have that much power? Like anything, if we hunger for something and go into denial, the thing we hunger for will become the only thing that maintains our focus. It is impossible to deny the presence of money when you are hungry, and the only way you will eat is to have money to purchase food to satisfy that hunger. Most people in human history have been incarcerated because they had no money to feed themselves or their loved ones. Accepting that money is the thing we use to define the value of the goods and service we provide, will take away the power of lusting for money.

Why Meditate?


hen my spiritual teacher Baba Hari Dass heard us complain that we were too busy to meditate, he would be firm in telling us that this was absolutely the most important time to do so. When able to follow this advice, I find that meditation slows down time, allows clearer thinking and gives me a break from the stress of life. It’s like exercise or brushing one’s teeth: get into the habit and it almost happens on its own; fall off the wagon and it’s like pulling those same teeth to get back on. That’s where group energy helps. Our teacher emphasized that to progress in spiritual life one needs five things: regular personal practice, study of scripture to clarify the path, positive work, play and group support! Not that scientific evidence convinces many of us to do anything, but there is a lot of research on the benefits of regular meditation: decreased stress through regulation of the mind and nervous system which becomes permanent over time; improved concentration; ability to lead a healthier lifestyle with less alcohol/tobacco/caffeine and better food; more self awareness leading to decreased aggression; increased happiness which shows up on brain scan patterns; more self acceptance; delayed aging with better cognition and more brain cells; improved cardiovascular health (in one study, 40 of 60 meditators were able to stop their blood pressure medication); and improved immunity, with fewer colds and flus. So what does lead us to new habits? Mostly pain, in some cases a natural evolution and/or inspiration by others. In my case, it grew out of meeting my teacher and learning a whole new philosophy of being—lucky me. I would love to pass on the blessing: consider taking a class with one of the many mediation teachers in the Ottawa area and see what happens… Katherine Willow N.D. directs the Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre ½ hour NW of Ottawa and offers mediation, talk and tea on Thursday mornings— all levels of meditators are welcome.

You will be excited to know that many trying circumstances will be coming to an end. I know that you are pooped but you must force yourself to make a plan and get new seeds in the ground, NOW. They will grow. 2. Life will force you to take care of lots of 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. Stay Zen. 3. Are the people in your life sucking the life out of you? It is time for radical changes this month. Make an effort to let go of past worries and force yourself to be more optimistic about the future. You need a break from your relationships. 4. Did you enjoy the summer? I hope so, because it is all about rebuilding and work, now. It is time to focus work on every level of your life. Don’t forget that your health is the most important foundation so get busy.

Try to focus on more solitary pursuits and focus on fixing what needs fixing in your mind and body. 8. The month of Oct. wants you to get your brain in gear and make important decisions. No more research is necessary. During this influence you will have an overwhelming desire to make changes in your career. 9. I know that you are so ready to get your shovel in the ground and move forward but stand firm and do nothing except eliminate anything that is in your way.

My name is Paula Barbara Bean and I am an Intuitive Listener. I have over 30 years of experience in all things paranormal. I also earned a bachelors and masters degree in counselling psychology from McGill University. Throughout my Life’s Journey, I have learned by being a student, by teaching and through experience, how to listen and to hear the heart of another person. Often, an individual is not able to access their true feelings and thoughts because of the noise in their lives. Noise is all of the stress and messages that surround a person throughout their days. I act as a mirror, a reflector. During a session, I will LISTEN to you. I will use tarot cards if you so wish, to help illustrate what is going on inside of you…your thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams. Together, we will examine where you are right now…in the present and what some of your future paths may look like, based upon the choices that you make. Your future is not fixed. You have choices and are active in creating your future. Kindly, Paula (613) 762-6055

Microbial Diseases


ooth and gum infections cause a multitude of whole body illnesses or cause inflammation that spreads through out the body. There at least 13 to 15 dangerous organisms in the mouth out of 400 to 500 different organisms in the mouth. Some are bacteria some are fungi some are viruses and some are parasites. There are about 15 areas of research looking at remote bodily connections to dentistry. These range from osteoporosis to Alzheimer’s to digestive tract cancers to heart diseases, kidney disease, strokes, pre term babies to erectile dysfunction. Further on the subject of Periodontal diseases let me quote one astute clinician, Dr. John Coombs M.D., “…I have been astounded at the ability of gingival infections to cause constitutional symptoms, such symptoms …are debilitating to the patient and they should be of concern to the general physician. It is unfortunate then, that the gingival the most severe infections going untreated, and at times even unnoticed. Physicians need to be better trained in the recognition of gingival infection, and both physicians and dentists need to be reminded of the significant role such infections can play in the general medical condition of tissues are such a sadly neglected part of the body, with all but patients.” Finally he comments on that incredibly powerful oral parasite called Entamaoba Gingivalis that is easily capable of consuming red blood cells or white blood cells at will as I, George Paul Greenacre, have personally witnessed many times in a phase contrast microscopes. Dr. Coombs states very correctly, “We have much to learn from continued research on the oral amoebae.” These comments are written in the forward to a book that should be required reading for all medical and dental students, Introduction to Protozoa and Fungi in Periodontal Infections, Dr. Trevor Lyons BDS and E. Stanfield BA 1989, Ottawa. Then we have this powerful 50 year old quote for Dr. C. C. Bass. Dr. Charles C. Bass M.D. was the former dean of Tulane Medical School. He was part of the first team of microscopic pathologists to discover how to differentiate malaria from typhoid. When he retired his curiosity about the mouth lead him to study

In 1965 he ominously and prophetically published his findings in the 1965 American Heart Journal (27-pp 718 -719) “In almost all ailments of the heart caused by bacteria, the source of the infection is known to be the pathologic and infected environment of the teeth…the health, welfare, and even life itself, of persons who have heart conditions which predispose to infections may depend upon prevention and control of dental disease… caries is a source of bacteremia only, and then temporarily, from advanced–stage infections involving infections of the pulp. Bacteremia in the periodontal pocket and in the diseased periodontal tissues are the source of almost all bacteremia from the environment of the teeth… I believe that, at some time in the future, leading cardiologists will wonder, in retrospect, how information so needed by their patients could have been overlooked or neglected for so long.” Remember this is 1965! In the last 6 years I have been working with a new laser and 10-step protocol to stop and reverse gum disease. It is the MPV7 Periolase laser from the Millennium Corporation from Cirritos, California. Their protocol is FDA approved and is making great changes in people’s lives.

Taking Responsibility For Our Emotional Reactions

Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, OM-Psycho-spiritual counsellor, coach, teacher, healer


n these very turbulent, high energy times we live in, it is very likely you are going to get triggered over and over again, from friends, co-workers, your family and especially your partner. Believe it or not, it is our family and partner’s job to push our buttons, just as it is anyone deeply connected to us. It is a sacred contract we set up with them in between lifetimes. We have asked them to help us to grow. But, of course, we forget that. We cannot heal what we are not aware of. And when a deep core issue comes up for us, we feel it and we know it. It can feel like rage, devastating loss, overwhelming fear and sometimes shame, guilt or resentment. These issues are all created in our childhood, buried in our subconscious, just waiting for the right, safe time for them to come to the surface of our awareness so they may be healed with our love, allowance and acceptance. I have found the inner child work invaluable to heal these old wounds that pop up putting our life in turmoil. Most of our deepest hurts, insecurities and angers are formed in childhood between the ages of 3 and 8. By age 8 most of us have formed our life script, which tells

We have developed a program of how we think the world works and what we think we need to do to survive in it. Having done that, we bury this programming deeply within us and continue motoring on unaware we have created this invisible operating system that is running our lives. We know what we believe to be true, but generally have no idea why we believe what we do and why we have certain expectations of those around us. When our buttons get pushed we know we have hit a core issue that needs addressing with love, support and understanding. It will feel as if someone is deliberating doing something to hurt us. The opposite is really true. Someone is doing us a favour by triggering us, by pushing our buttons. As I said before we cannot heal what we are not aware of. When triggered, it is easy to feel like a victim, blaming others rather than taking responsibility and doing the needed healing work. The truth is we are never victims. Rather we are working through the growth opportunities we set up with our soul prior to incarnation. The truth is if you have buttons they will be pushed. The work is to heal the buttons, our emotional hot spots.

This is the most profound and deeply healing work you will ever learn and it is invaluable in this time of shift and transition.

Divorce University Two Years Later


t has often been said that “Knowledge is Power.” Over the 37 years that I have been working as a family lawyer and mediator, I have often been struck by the misinformation that clients seem to have acquired. Whether from canvassing family law websites that deal with jurisdictions other than Ontario, or perhaps from just watching too many American TV shows, many couples who have tried their best to obtain accurate family law information have wound up being sadly misinformed. To combat this epidemic of misinformation, I started a program two years ago called Divorce University. In a free, half day seminar that I offer from time to time, I explain, in simple English, the basic concepts of family law for separating couples in Ontario. The next seminar is Saturday, October 22, from 9:30 am – 12 noon in a hotel in downtown Ottawa. (Details are sent out by email to every person who registers.) The seminar is for the general public, as well as for professionals who work with separating spouses. In the seminar I focus primarily on the three main areas of every Separation Agreement: 1. Parenting Arrangements. This is the section that deals with all aspects of the parents’ arrangements for their children (except for the financial arrangements, which are covered under point #3). What will their custody arrangement be, and what will their timesharing arrangements be for their children? (These are two completely separate matters.) What happens if one parent wants to move away from Ottawa? What happens if they can’t agree on something to do with their children? 2. Division of Assets and Debts. This can be the most technically complicated part of an Agreement. The family law of Ontario sets out a detailed mathematical formula to, in effect, divide up the assets and debts accumulated during a marriage equally between the spouses. Most couples know about this basic 50/50 rule, but there are important exceptions (and exceptions to the exceptions!) that can change the basic rule significantly. This part of the seminar pays particular attention to the matrimonial home and pensions. 3. Financial Support. This includes spousal support, if applicable, as well as child support. There are always three questions to consider here: Is the spouse/child entitled to support? If so, how much and for how long? These questions are usually easier to answer with respect to children than for spouses. In addition to these three main areas, I also discuss the following topics: common-law situations, issues specific to same-sex couples, wills and powers of attorney, life insurance, children’s property, Canada Pension Plan

(Participants have told me over the years that this is the highlight of the entire seminar.) Most separations are fairly straightforward. Unless the couple owns property overseas, say, or between them has four pensions in three different provinces (as I once dealt with), most situations are reasonably simple – at least from the legal point of view. But having accurate information on which to base decisions is key. Knowledge may indeed be power. But it can also provide clarity, certainty and relief from the stress of the unknown. Hundreds of separating spouses have attended Divorce University over the past two years. I hope you’ll join me on Saturday, October 22 to gain some more knowledge about family law. Remember, the seminar is free, but you must register with me at evitar@ so I have enough chairs for everyone! Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa law school, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law.

Fall is Here!

Can we be supported energetically via the force, strength and natural intelligence of the rhythm of nature? Even when nature is sleeping? YES WE CAN!


an you believe it? Fall is here. I do not know about yourself, but it often goes like this; summer begins, we feel we have all this wonderful time ahead of us, either enjoying holidays, warm days and evenings, gatherings with friends and family and one day, you wake up and it’s time to return to work, children back to school, the light begins to decrease, the sun sets earlier and the leaves start changing colors. For some, fall is an invigorating time of harvesting, generosity and creativity. For others, it may bring feelings of morose, leaving the nice days behind, moving towards darkness, cold days and nights. This transition time may affect us temporarily to gradually adjust ourselves to this natural change. For some, this transition may affect more profoundly, losing energy, inspiration and feeling even a little depressed, resenting the long winter months just around the corner. Many Canadians enjoy one or two weeks south and wait eagerly this short Holiday. And yet, one must come back.



Fall Tree Essences Using the Synergy tree essence no 3 Harmony, will definitely help you. It has been formulated for people feeling low in energy, feeling a loss of interest, and even resentment. It works just as if we were attuning ourselves to a perfect inner harmony and even experiencing dark days, we move through them accessing to inner resources. Take it 2 to 3 times a day or more. You will surprise yourself at gaining new energy and fresh perspective. You may also chose to add the combination Joyful living tree essence. If you have a tendency to withdraw yourself at this time of year or not celebrating fully your life as you should and deserve, use 6 drops, morning and night, to remind yourself that life supports you no matter what, where or when.

Meditation -- Being our True Self


ur true identity is boundless consciousness, connected with all that is. Yet, here we are being human and identifying ourselves with all the roles we play; going to work, being a parent, a partner, a friend. Every role tries to define us and makes an imprint on our mind. Our constant interaction with the world around us fills our senses and calls on us to respond. Our thinking minds become overloaded with stuff to sort out and pretty soon we have forgotten the spiritual truth of what we are. Meditation is the tool we can use to reconnect with our deepest self. Sitting down and simply following the breath allows all those impressions stored in the subconscious mind to  come flowing upward to be released. Gradually the mind calms and we gain a sense of inner spaciousness and serenity.  At times we need to consciously release the roles we play. We can start a meditation by saying "I give up being a student, (accountant, teacher etc.), I give up being a parent, husband, partner etc. By doing this we can allow ourselves to move into the present and release the identities and thoughts that are keeping us preoccupied with the past and the future. Often we may be storing tensions and feelings in our bodies. Stretching, moving and breathing consciously can all assist in releasing these tensions. Then our energy starts to flow and we can bring more awareness and focus to the present moment. Traditional yogic meditation incorporates the practice of "pratyahara"; the conscious removal of the mind and senses from the external environment. This can be as simple as imagining that you are in a special place far

away from your everyday life and responsibilities; a place where you have come to be one with the infinite consciousness of the universe. Similar techniques exist to withdraw from one's identification with the physical body and from identification with  the wanderings of the mind. Establishing oneself in a space of inner quiet we get to experience ourselves as a pure and peaceful witness to whatever is flowing through us. Instead of being the feeling or being the thought we are the witness of it. It floats through our awareness and we do not hold onto it. The rhythm of the breath takes over and we may feel like we are floating gently on a great ocean of peace and calm. In the yogic tradition of meditation it is common to repeat a mantra internally while meditating. This helps establish focus by giving the mind something to concentrate on in addition to the breath. When the attention wanders you return to the rhythm of the breath and the sound of the mantra. This simple act, this constant returning of the mind to focusing on the breath and the mantra builds the muscle of attention; it builds the knowledge and experience of being awareness and of being pure consciousness.  Now the mind is a fluid and expansive entity. It can take the shape of whatever becomes its object. It can take the shape of a pink elephant or it can take the shape of a problem at home or at work. But, by giving it a sublime and transcendant idea to focus on it  can flow into an expanded state of identity. A mantra is somewhat like a Koan in Zen Buddhism; the conscious, reasoning mind can't grasp the "sound of one hand clapping" or the meaning of a mantra such as "everything is love".  Only a subtler level of mind, the intuition,  can grasp or imagine such a transcendant idea. Our mind can intuitively relate to this subtle idea and be further encouraged to flow in a state of expanded awareness beyond the inner dialogue which occupies so much of our energy on a daily basis. Being aware, being still, being in a state of flow, all of these states emerge through the practice of meditation and we experience ourselves as we truly are; boundless consciousness, a drop in a cosmic ocean that releases its limits and becomes one with the vastness of all that is. Chris Simmonds Chris is also known by his spiritual name; Acharya Chandranath. He is an ordained teacher in the Ananda Seva lineage and has been practicing meditation in the yogic tradition for over 40 years. He leads group classes and workshops in the Ottawa area and internationally. He also provides personal instruction in the more advanced practices of his tradition.

Competition Bureau Response to Complaints of Pharmaceutical AntiCompetition Behaviour: Tough Luck!


top Psychotherapy Takeover’s (SPT) most recent initiative in the fight to stop the elimination of some 10,000 holistic, traditional, energy and spiritual care practitioners in Ontario was a new Submission, roughly 700 pages, sent by courier to the Competition Bureau on July 17th, 2016. Our Submission requested a thorough investigation of Ontario’s corrupt and deadly healthcare system. It detailed how and why Ontario residents are all in grave danger on many healthcare flanks - including, (a) psychotherapy legislation that is slated for proclamation any day now, designed to monopolize all mental healthcare in the hands of psychiatrists and psychologists, (b) a more recent initiative to eliminate thousands of holistic healthcare clinics and wellness locations, and (c) the fact that unaccountable, medical/ pharmaceutical-front corporations are inappropriately dictating healthcare policy for the people of Ontario. If you’d like a copy of this highly informative Submission document, please contact us at info@ . Disappointingly, but to no great surprise, we received a resounding ‘tough luck’ from the Competition Bureau by telephone (hear the conversation here: https://www., followed by written confirmation that they will not be pursuing any enforcement action or putting their decision in writing. Competition Bureau officials stated that provincial politicians and government are not subject to any Competition Act provisions. The clear implication is that cartels are free to create monopolies in Canada simply by inserting representatives into key government positions (such as Ministry of Health). Interestingly, the Bureau Officers failed to comment on their ability to investigate the non-governmental front corporation called FHRCO, which you will read about further below. Are provincial governments really immune from investigation and prosecution, even when anticompetitive behavior is undertaken under the cover of invalid laws, as is the case in this healthcare scandal? Our investigation continues because according to the Competition Bureau’s own website, they specify that regulatory conduct under valid laws are not the jurisdiction of the Competition Bureau, acknowledging there is a distinction. Regardless, Competition Bureau staff have a creative name for this sort of anti-competition corruption: Regulatory Capture. Regulatory Capture is a form of government failure that occurs when a regulatory mechanism created to act in the public interest, instead advances the commercial or political


concerns of special interest groups that dominate the industry or sector it is intended to regulate. It is the process by which regulations and agencies eventually come to be dominated by the very industries they were charged with regulating. The Competition Bureau officials indicated that they may eventually ‘advocate’ on this issue. However not only do they claim that they are unable to take enforcement action against any government, but in this case, they won’t know for quite a while if this issue will be considered important enough to ‘advocate’ about. Ontario’s Health Regulatory Colleges are Unaccountable Corporations Research for the Submission uncovered many complexities in our corrupt Ontario healthcare legislative scheme. For example, regulatory colleges, like the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, are corporations (‘bodies corporate’), unaccountable to the residents of Ontario and not remotely transparent. They are not subject to FIPPA (FOI requests and privacy requirements), not subject to the Corporations Act, and soon will not be subject to the Not-for-Profit Corporations Act. More recently, we learned they are also not subject to the Competition Act. More Corporate Influences on Ontario’s Regulation of Healthcare Practitioners Yet another private corporation, one that goes by a government-sounding name but is completely outside the legislative framework with no government mandate whatsoever, has been for years heavily influencing the Ministry and individual Colleges, but never registered as a lobby group. This private corporation is called Federation of Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario (FHRCO) and is run by Registrars of the various colleges, who themselves are corporate employees, the most influential among them direct from the pharmaceutical and medical corporate groups. These Registrars are often strategically-employed advocates of the medical/pharmaceutical cartel, and they use their association with the colleges to project an undeserved air of legitimacy and authority onto FHRCO. Few of them have any experience in the actual provision of healthcare. FHRCO’s agenda seems focused on eliminating all unregulated practitioners and any inconvenient regulated practitioners (the non-biomedical or independent-minded ones) through unlawful and fraudulent/invalid legislation. It doesn’t stop there, as FHRCO openly engages in smear campaigns disguised as ‘education’: Propaganda designed to turn the public against natural treatment practitioners. FHRCO promotes the design and use of unjustified registration and membership requirements that they pressure individual colleges to adopt. Shenda Tanchak, former Executive Advisor to the medical doctors (College of Physicians and Surgeons) and ringleader of the Ontario Clinic Regulation Working Group discussed below, currently presides over FHRCO as President.

October 2016

We brought the actions of this private corporation to the attention of the Competition Bureau in our Submission. Since the FHRCO is not a government agency or mandated by the government, we fully expected an investigation…but again, the Bureau seems to have given FHRCO a free pass on anti-competition behaviour. Ontario Clinic Regulation – it doesn’t get more fascist than this The Ontario Clinic Regulation Working Group’s ‘consultation report’, and their ‘recommendation report’ are now with the Minister, ready to be rubber-stamped and moved to the next stage, which will most likely mean more unlawful legislation buried in yet another huge Omnibus bill. The clinic regulation project is a group of 13 College Registrars working outside their mandate with the express intent of outlawing all places where health and wellness services are provided by unregulated practitioners, such as Reiki, mediation, yoga, hypnosis services. In other words, this group proposes to eliminate thousands of holistic services from Ontario for no particular reason, except that it is clear they are interfering with pharmaceutical profiteering.

These regulations would, in effect, make everything from Reiki to hypnotherapy, pet-assisted therapy to counsellors, meditation and holistic education to spiritual care, illegal. Worse, the group wants to impose mandatory moral character evaluations on all regulated practitioners, except of course, dentists, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and nurses… the ones so often cited for questionable ethics and morality. This is yet another angle from which our fundamental freedoms are under attack and it traces back to FHRCO at least as early as 2008. The Ontario Clinic Regulations Working Group is headed by none other than FHRCO’s current president, the above-mentioned Shenda Tanchak. Their project is force-funded via the fees extorted from the Members of the Registrars’ 13 colleges. For more info visit: Final Thoughts Assuming that the Competition Bureau’s claims are accurate, and provincial governments really are immune from investigation and prosecution under the Competition Act, this begs the question: Was the Competition Act framed to allow anticompetition and monopolizing behavior via the provincial government? However this situation came about, we now have a morally and ethically bankrupt Ontario government and its front corporations designing all manner of anticompetition legislation and policies that violate our Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms, without any worries of being held accountable for the horrific financial and emotional distress they are causing Ontarians. It seems that the ONLY avenue left for turning this situation around is Court. And we need to raise the money now, before more innocent healthcare providers are ruined and their clients left with fewer and fewer healthcare options.

Animal Communication


nimals and nature try to speak to us on a daily basis. Have you ever wondered what messages animals are trying to share with you? Animal Communication is real from my personal experience. We all have this gift, but most people’s minds are too busy to hear an animal’s whisper. It is so subtle that we simply don’t trust or believe it is actually happening. Animals can hear, feel and sense our thoughts, yet we just need some practice to receive theirs. Once you have practiced receiving correct answers to enough verifiable questions, your confidence in your intuition increases. Through these undeniable connections, you will begin to know that animal communication is genuine. I invite you to attend my two-day Animal Communication workshop where you will be in a supportive environment with like-minded individuals who share the same interest in reconnecting with themselves and nature.

Rehabilitation Yoga Therapy Approach


ehabilitation yoga therapy rehabilitates injuries sustained in athletics and it is considered an ancient form of self healing and the reason it heals is that we must allow ourselves to breathe through painful trauma. If we cannot breathe through painful trauma and injuries we cannot open up the spaces inside our mind. Our mind must open and we must learn to open up and this is what a yoga therapist teaches during treatment and it is taught in silence. In silence you will be held by the internal awakening energy which moves into your mind body and allows you to be free. You will be given space to be free. In therapy you will begin to be free while you are moved into postures which can be uncomfortable for

you. If so, you may wish to cry. It can be a happy state for some. Some can cry while letting go of painful tension. The painful tension will be allowed to be released and you can be given space to feel your injuries. Your injuries will be speaking to me. I will hear the energy and I will know the mind of one. The mind of one is nirvana. You will be asked to release yourself when you enter into a contractual agreement with me to be a therapist. I will let you release yourself from the pain of knowing trauma. Trauma can be a memory of painful panic or abuse or despair or an injury sustained in a class. If you cannot remember the trauma it will surface and it will speak to me. I will hear the words of your inner teacher. If so I will share this. I may ask you to keep it to yourself. If you do I will allow you to send it away. When you do I will honour you. I will honour your karmic path.

PEACE ON EARTH Channelled by Lisa Virtue [Note: Part way through, the first channelled consciousness departed and another came in to continue.]


e come at a time when all who are experiencing challenge begin to doubt themselves, and then, for a time, the ultimate purpose of what is. This may not necessarily be a conscious thought on your part, however it is within the greater collective awareness. What we propose at this time is: shift your purpose to one that not only involves the collective awareness but the interaction of mass understanding. Feeling connected to all that is becomes a burden when one is considering the ‘unholy’ aspects of what you bear witness to in your realm of experience. However the greater conscious awareness of all that is holds the peace desired by all. If you doubt peace is desired by all, know that conflict is simply an expression of the awareness of a disconnect. Coming back into conscious connection with all serves to reunite you. It begins, or starts, with a reconnection with your own self, or self-awareness. The awareness of the greater then is accessed. Coming into a new purpose to connect all only requires a shift of perceiving how all are truly one anyway. Holding the truth of all being united as emanating from a Divine source, or essence, or energy if you will, moves you in to a recognition that wholeness is fully achieved as your perception moves into that understanding. It is impossible to be other than that which you emanate from. All emanate from the One. Therefore, all are in truth, that One. The whole purpose of being is to encounter oneself. Knowing that all are part of that One makes the adventure a little more grand, wouldn’t you say? Being at peace, or oneness with yourself effectively brings about what was just being asked of you above. It is the comprehension that you are all one that changes the parameters in your intentions. Deciding that all are in fact one moves the intention of what you do to a grander scale, a bigger scope. Moving, changing, shifting within your one-body self is using the parameters in which

you are housed to still accomplish a seemingly greater purpose or vision. Perceiving self as a limited being in a body, conscious of ones own personal thoughts has now become your framework, or your artists tools and canvas for creating. Use what you are, where you are, and how you are. You see, knowing that you are part of the one and choosing to harmonize and bring an inner peace or grace about yourself, by rights means the One is doing so. Being peace creates that peace in all – when you choose that it is in fact so. Your choice in how you perceive effects so much, effects everything really. Now the request is being put to you to focus in this way, and you will attain so much more than you could have possibly imagined. Be at one with yourselves and all that is, dear ones. We already are, and know you to be too. Love is who we all are. Know it is so. Grace and love be with you always. Your Dear Essence and all possible incarnations who recognize the oneness (and truly even those that do not. J ) Lisa Virtue is an Energy Healer and Channel.

Can Soul be Seen in a Scientific Method?

By Rupa Let’s talk about what is a scientific method. A scientific method is: first, you believe a theory and you test it as a scientist, then you tell the world what you found. For example, the Wright brothers first believed a human being is able to fly in the sky. Then as pioneers they try many times, fail many times and at last successfully invent the first airplane. Other scientists improve their invention and the airplane goes faster and safer. Self-realization is similar. First we need to believe that there is soul and the soul is eternal. Then we can test this theory. The only difference is, the instrument as a test is our own body and if this lifetime can not totally understand (test fail), next test will be next lifetime until sometime we successfully “see” in our body that the soul does exist. Then the following lifetime coming will be used to work on improving the “airplane”. We will “see” the soul more clearly and “see” the soul activities. Then we would like to share with others just because the experience is so great. Of course, not everyone is a scientist and inventing an airplane is dangerous. We need to have a strong belief


to be the pioneer. When we are not ready to test on our body, we could at least read some books, study the related topics. At least when the others talk about the soul we know it’s not an imagination or superstition. It’s a subject of science. When Edison was looking for the ways to make the light bulb, it took him thousands of times of testing. His mind’s strength and flexibility was extraordinary (able to find thousands of ways to test). When we are going to be a scientist to study the soul, we need to prepare for thousands of failures. This needs strong faith. Only the ones that keep trying will succeed. Would you like to be a scientist of the soul? Would you like to listen to the words from the scientist of the soul? Rupa Manjari Devi Das (Ivy) has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. 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 the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. The experience will let you understand this amazing scientific knowledge and give you practical skills and techniques to use on and off the mat!
