more calm. Imagine immersing yourself in the monasteries which have been filled with the vibration of monks chanting for over 400 years! This has created these unique buildings that are so filled with this vibration that you can often move into your mediation quite quickly and without effort. Bhutan is centered in the Himalayan mountain range, and as such, is filled with prana (energy). Imagine practicing yoga with a view of the Himalayas. Imagine travelling to a country where Gross National Happiness is a priority for all of their citizens. Imagine meditating in monasteries that are centuries old. This can be a reality by joining us on our 9 day tour to Bhutan. This all inclusive tour starts from the time you land in Bhutan until you fly out 9 days later. We practice various types of yoga (Hatha, Kundalini, Yin, Restorative and Nidra) and meditation daily, as well as touring through Bhutan.

Age-less and Thrive



October 2018


Fitness Those who work at full time jobs spend much of their time sitting at computers and in meetings, rushing home to feed the kids (and the pets) and then meeting commitments that keep them busy in the evenings. For most, especially those with children, fitness begins to take second, third and fourth place. Yet, our bodies are designed to be used, moved, stretched, pushed to action. And this is a great way to ensure weight control, health, vigour and durability for many years. Much research tells us that our bodies, to remain strong, flexible, agile, and youthful, demand appropriate exercise--both intensity exercise and strength training. Incorporating both types of exercise into your life contributes significantly to retention of brain volume and your brain’s capacity and capability in many different ways. How do we fit all of this in to a lifestyle that is already overburdened with commitments? That’s a real conundrum! A conundrum that is manageable with a little creative re-structuring of your life. You can build both intensity and strength exercise into your life with some creative thinking. For example, stairs are everywhere. When I cannot get out for my run I walk the stairs a number of times sometimes carrying weights. Even your workplace has stairs...use them instead of elevators!

Flow The formidable stresses of our modern life create tensions that get expressed in our bodies and contribute to aging. Muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments, joints, connective tissue, and organs get stuck and compromised forming scar tissue, knotting up muscles, limiting range of motion, reducing blood flow, causing inflammation and pain. Thus begins an acceleration of the aging process, with increases in falls as well as health issues, mental deterioration and more. As the pressures of our modern life fold in on us it affects sleep which is essential to our health and our resistance to aging. This is especially true of brain functions. Good sleep heals the body and cleanses the brain of ‘garbage’ ensuring healthy brain function. It is important in these hectic times to attend to quieting the mind, deepening connection with nature, healing sorrows, slowing down to centre ourselves. It is always the right time to offer our body/mind/heart/ spirit loving and peaceful soothing and by releasing your mind, comforting your heart and connecting with Self. Fun What is fun for one person is not necessarily fun for another. Whatever it is for you do it often...you deserve to be happy, joyful, contented, peaceful and satisfied...and no-one can do this for you. For some it includes their network of family and friends; for others it is solitude and creativity. If you do not know what constitutes fun for you, then try different things out and do not be discouraged. Never give up: it will show up as you search for it. If you find yourself interested in exploring how to live your age-less life and thrive feel free to contact me. Until then, I wish you a life lived age-lessly...full of energy and contentment, so you may enjoy the years ahead of you with joy and fulfillment.

Being Triggered


ow do we deal with our reactions, those types of reactions when we feel triggered, contracted and then feel inclined to withdraw or say or do things we may regret? I find that those moments of being triggered can become a ground for us to explore, so as to better deal with those types of triggering situations. Triggering situations can actually be positive and a source of insight from which we can learn - we can learn how to stay more present, clear, and compassionate. The first step in a triggering situation is to take a deep breath so that we can stay present and gently look at our reaction. Admitting our level of stress and the emotional response we had, observing curiously from a non-judgmental place, is of the essence. From here we have something that we can work with. Truly, it all begins with an honest look at ourselves. Then we can work on our issues with compassion, proceeding to develop a self-care routine and learning to shift our habit patterns. With the work that I do with my clients, we learn to generate a grounded perspective, which enables us to stay present. Parallel to this, respecting this most intimate process helps to build selfesteem, as true confidence is quite simple. Self-esteem is not superiority, but acceptance of ourselves as we are, it is honoring our humanity with humility and care, being human and admitting that we’re learning, and that we have a story, just like everyone. Then we can go deeper...I’ve explored the principles of transparent communication with a contemporary teacher, Thomas Hübl, and found the results astounding. Transparent communication is in part based on having the ability to honestly face ourselves, our deeper reactions, and find their origins. Why am I triggered? Could it be because I am experiencing fear, anger or the desire to have things my way, or to control? Then learning to slow down enough through various means, will enable clarity to prevail. I find the daily practice of


meditation helps, however, guidance is also important; to have a kind hand guiding us through this inner journey, releasing the burden of the past, releasing frustrations. This helps us ultimately to express a truer self. From there we have the ability to see the other person, with depth of perception. To truly see. An example is one of my clients having to deal with a husband that is overworked and carries a lot of stress. I provide this example with her permission. When he overreacted and couldn’t let go, she softly said to him: “Don’t be in haste!”. This comment deflated the situation, he paused and replied in a more relaxed tone, “What, you think I’m a hobbit?” (they are both fans of the series Lord of the Rings). He sat and they paused, ate, and were able to have a calmer more objective conversation regarding the issues at hand. My client told me that she normally would have replied aggressively, also yelling back that he is always angry, and so on. But she was able to objectively see his stress and needs. When we work on ourselves, healing our inner wounds, the child within, or simply developing a lifestyle that will enable us to express our own true spirit, life is truly more fulfilling. Habit patterns and reactions can become addictive. Jung believed that the cure of addictions had to be spiritual and he believed the cured involved a spiritual thirst for a sense of wholeness. For me, that means to be in harmony with our deeper self, our core essence, from where clarity is expressed , then with others and the world. It is a personal work, yet we can help ourselves, perhaps more than we know. If you wish to book a session, or for more information simply contact me, it will be my pleasure to speak with you.

Healing Fibromyalgia


ccording to one estimate, 2 percent of Americans, or about 3.7 million people may have the fibromyalgia syndrome. It primarily affects women and usually first occurs between the ages of 20 and 60. It causes no inflammation, and does not affect the joints, connective tissue, or muscles. This lack of inflammation sets fibromyalgia apart from rheumatoid arthritis. It produces pain in the body’s fibrous, ligaments and tendons and in the muscles. The pain has been described in a variety of ways including: burning, radiating, gnawing, sore, stiff, and aching, although it may start in one region, such as the neck and shoulders. Pain may radiate from various sites that are painful when the tender points are touched, although people with fibromyalgia may not even realize these particular areas hurt until pressure is applied to them. The other main characteristic of fibromyalgia is chronic fatigue. About 90 percent of people with fibromyalgia

describe moderate or severe fatigue with lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion felt with the flu or with lack of sleep. Sufferers often complain of waking up as tired as they were when they went to sleep and remaining fatigued throughout the day. It often varies according to time of the day, activity level, weather, sleep patterns, and stress levels. Most people with fibromyalgia say that some degree of pain is always present. They sense that the pain is mainly in their muscles and often note that fibromyalgia feels like a persistent flu. Many people with fibromyalgia have a personal history of depression or anxiety at some time in their life. There is evidence that some people with fibromyalgia have a history of abuse or neglect during their life as well. People with fibromyalgia may have feelings of numbness and tingling in their hands, arms, feet, legs, or sometimes in their face. These feelings can suggest other disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, neuritis, or even multiple sclerosis. Headaches, especially muscular (tension) and migraine headaches, are common in fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, and alternating constipation and diarrhea are also common. This may resemble irritable bowel syndrome or “spastic colon.” Similar bladder spasms and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Tim Wu’s Qigong therapy focuses the treating on immune system and nerve system for fibromyalgia. It’s very important to improve the circulation condition, such as blood circulation and energy circulation, for heal the symptom of fibromyalgia. It takes about 5 to 10 treatments for most of the fibromyalgia patients to completely get rid of this symptom. www.uniquetherapy.com

In Memory of Dharma Master Tan Run Huan (谭润华) By Ivy Xie-McIsaac, E-RYT200, YACEP


t has been 12 years since my first Yoga teacher passed away. Dharmapala Master Tan is my first Yoga teacher. He was born in 1913 and learned Yoga in Hong Kong when he was young. When I met him, he had already retired from teaching work as a biology teacher and had over 70 years practice experience with Hatha Yoga. I believe in simplicity and directness. But most of time we make a simple thing complex. When I was young, to die meant to go to heaven and didn’t understand why I could not go to heaven at once, but had to stay living to suffer. Death and the meaning of life has always been a consideration in my mind.

Soundara Rajan

Daughter of Professor Krishnamurthy

Practicing and Teaching Stellar and Vedic Astrology Guiding people since 1959 in Finances, Career, Investment, Relationship and Family. Teaching meditation

Right after my first travel to Tibet, in November 1996, at my first Yoga class in China I met Master Tan. Even in his eighties he was still full of vitality like a youth. In the class he didn’t talk very much. He played Yoga music and let us meditate. I felt the magic of Yoga at once. A bliss that I had never experienced before came to me. A place with no worry, no arising thoughts. An empty place, a place where I felt totally free. In such a place, I don’t have to contemplate life or death. Just be my Self. I didn’t know how this happened, but I knew that this way of Yoga could lead me to the answer. Master Tan not only taught by words, but set an example by his manners. He used plain language to guide me to look into my heart, my Self instead of something else. I never felt being judged by him. Master Tan didn’t teach. He offered freedom. He offered a space, a space where I could fly. I could BE. Master Tan gave me a grounded understanding of Yoga: Yoga is more than stretch and strength; more than having a relaxed body and calm mind, it’s a life attitude. Yoga will help to connect with the power inside. Through in-class and daily life practice, Yoga gives balance to body, mind and spirit. Ivy’s geography background and travel have given her a unique perspective. Her book A Complete Yoga Manual is a bridge between east and west, modern and ancient, theory and practice. A Complete Yoga Manual by Ivy Xie-McIsaac is available at Singing Pebble Books. Ivy will have a book signing, along with chanting at Singing Pebble Books, 206 Main Street, Ottawa on Sunday, November 18 from 2 to 5.

Pathwork: Unlocking Our Potential


Pathwork Lecture #136 “The Illusory Fear of the Self” examines how we can get lost in painful patterns that prevent us from living up to our potential and offers guidance in how to open ourselves to living more fully from our inner abundance. This will be the topic for the first Open Lecture for the 2018/2019 season, on Wednesday, October 17 at Saint Paul University, 233 Main Street, 7 to 9 pm. Enter at the 233 Main Street entrance and follow the signs to the room. There is a suggested donation of $15 for nonmembers; $5 for members. There will be a presentation of the lecture as well as an exercise to help apply the concepts to our daily lives.

But often as adults we struggle to give our best to life. Rather than experiencing the pleasure of giving to life from the abundance that we carry within us, in some areas of our lives, we struggle to cover up what The Pathwork lectures are available for free download we see in ourselves that we don’t like – our fears, our at www.pathwork.org.

North Star Intuitive o you have issues that create stress, or have


some anxieties troubling you? Are you interested in receiving insightful messages from your higher self through an Intuitive Writing session; or to receive a Reiki or Healing Touch treatment for a deep relaxation? I started using the INTUITIVE WRITING in 2005 while struggling under the stress of working in a big corporation and being a new mother. I used this technique to help me lighten the burden that daily challenges and stress had on my mind and emotions. It was a revelation for me to become a conduit through Intuitive Writing. Each Intuitive Writing session brought me increased personal awareness and guidance needed to bring me closer to the light. I called the deep goodness I experienced my North Star. I now offer the service of Intuitive Writing through “North Star Intuitive” to be of service to others.

Dolphin Dentistry Oral Health is Now Essential for Total Health

For an Intuitive Writing session, I retreat to a calm and peaceful place in my mind, open the channels of compassion and love through meditation which guides the answers written based on the client’s subject of their choice. The client may relax lying on a massage table or simply rest sitting nearby, while I rely on my intuition to guide my writings. My clients recognize a positive range of  benefits including guidance, an encouragement for action, confirmation  that you are on the right path and greater clarity in your mind. Some of my clients’ feedback is that these writings resonate with recent events, the messages are encouraging and  uplifting; they often offer a confirmation of the direction to take on personal issues, supporting them in their journey.  I am a certified REIKI MASTER. REIKI activates the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restores physical and emotional well-being. By contrast the technique of “laying on hands” helps to channel energy and maximize the body’s own capacity to heal through improved energy flow and deep relaxation. In all services the client remains fully clothed while resting on a massage table during the treatment with soft music playing. HEALING TOUCH is an energy healing therapy used extensively by health care professionals such as massage therapists, social workers and other energy medicine practitioners. Practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to enhance, support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental, spiritual health and inner-healing. Healing Touch unblocks the chakras, resulting in the restoration of normal function of the organs.  The services are provided in English or French. Visit north_star_intuitive on Instagram.

Question: How can we rid ourselves of our selfconsciousness and our worry about what other people think of us? SRI CHINMOY: Why should you worry what others are thinking of you? Remember that all the time you waste in worrying about what others think of you could be used for your own self-discovery. Often, we feel that if somebody appreciates us, we will be inspired. But very often when we receive appreciation, our pride enters, and the ego comes forward. While others are extolling us to the skies, unconsciously they are feeding us to two formidable enemies: our pride and our ego. When others admire us we have to be extremely careful. We have to detach ourselves. If we have done something good, we should immediately feel that we are not the doer, but that the Supreme in us has done it. If we have done something extraordinary, immediately we must feel, “I am just an instrument. The Supreme in me did it and I have given Him full credit and full responsibility.” When others speak ill of us, we must not lose all our inspiration and aspiration and allow depression to enter. At that time also, we have to feel that we are just instruments. We must always try to separate our actions from their results. We must accept the experience, but not claim it as our very own. If we are one with the fruits of the action, then immediately ego or frustration will come forward. The best thing is to think of God always and to feel that He is thinking of you. If you always think of God, God will think of you and appreciate you. In the outer life, when two persons love each other, they are always thinking of each other and of what the other person is thinking of them. In the spiritual life also, cherish only these two thoughts: what God is thinking of you and what you are thinking of Him. Then there will be no time left for you to think of others or to worry about what others are thinking of you. Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Alternatives Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol


ver the years I have grown to appreciate that there are many options available for us to bring our own healing to fruition. I can’t speak about all of them but I do know about a few as I practice several, some of which are Reiki, Reflexology, Reconnective Healing and Metaphysical counselling. I don’t feel that these should be categorized necessarily as “alternative” when discussing one’s own healing. I much prefer that they be recognized as being complementary, not only to and with medical treatment but also in combination with other so called alternative/ natural modalities. I’m still surprised when I hear that people will wait until they have done everything (medically) possible and they are at the end of their rope, so to speak before they check out the more Natural ways. It brings me such joy and satisfaction when I have a client that was a little leery of what I do and by the end of the session they wished they had come sooner. They didn’t have to be afraid and realize that I am here to facilitate their healing not to hinder it.

Some people spread fear and unfounded gossip about natural options that they have never even attempted to try or research. On the other hand, it’s encouraging that a few of the more open Medical professionals are now actually recommending that their patients try some of these non-invasive natural options, such as Reiki and Reflexology. I know it takes time and that we still have a ways to go before medical beliefs change in this regard. I believe that some day they will be readily recognized and appreciated by the mainstream. I’m sure that it will come through education to those that are lacking where our healing is concerned. It is the responsibility and especially important that those with personal experience, training and knowledge talk about the benefits of these Natural options and dispel the misconceptions. If you’re curious I hope you’ll ask questions, try a session or two before giving up. You might be pleasantly surprised with the results. Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. www.firstlighthealing.com 613-263-7925

Here’s what to do next. By Jen Wozny Take these three steps: 1. Remove from your workload anything that is unnecessary. This frees up time for you to deal with the stress. You need that time to recover, reevaluate, and either course correct or re-enter a stressed lifestyle. 2. Get into the parasympathetic response as much as possible. This is the “rest and relaxation” response. It is the opposite of the “fight or flight” response, which is where you live when you are stressed. Elicit the parasympathetic response through, for example, deep breathing, meditation, restorative yoga, and deep sleep. 3. Take a probiotic as well as nutritional supplements. Stress diminishes the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food, so everything you eat many not be helping you at all. The probiotic will help to correct the digestive system and promote absorption. The supplements (e.g., multivitamin, spirulina tabs) are condensed pieces of pure fuel. Next, consider getting outside help. Find either a friend to spend quality time with, or a coach who will help you examine why you became stressed in the first place, and how to move forward in a healthier manner. The latter is what Put The Light Here does: life coaching, energy healing, and tips for healthy living. All appointments are held over the phone—no travel time, no parking hassles. Five days a week, including Saturdays. Not sure? No worries. Book your free consultation. Go to PutTheLightHere.com > Services > One-on-one Appointments.

How a Successful Business is Like the Lotus Flower

by Mary Pougnet eautiful and pristine on the surface, the white Lotus flower actually grew in a dark, inhospitable environment. It began as a seed deep in the mud. On its journey upward, it had to take from the mud the best of what was on offer, leave the rest behind, and break through the surface to bloom. The lotus therefore personifies resilience, perseverance, and strength in the face of adversity.

The Way of the Shaman


Shamanic Journeying, Power & Healing The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism

October 20-21


November 3-4


A business develops in a similar way. While the intention for the business may be clear, the environment in which it grows may become murky. Over my 40-year career, I have seen numerous types of “mud” get in the way of clients’ success: yy life and health issues (lack of sleep, overeating, depression, overwhelm, others’ opinions about their chances of success, low self-worth, guilt over not spending enough time with family, child care issues, divorce); yy lack of financial literacy (no cash flow, high banking fees and interest charges, not planning for sales tax and income tax liabilities, unfiled tax returns, unsettling letters from Canada Revenue Agency); and yy business setbacks (uncollected receivables, operating expenses higher than budgeted, inadequate or no business financing, key employee or supplier turnover). However, when one reaches out for the right help, the way becomes clear and the business can expand in a fiscally healthy manner. I therefore take a holistic approach to helping my clients—clearing away the mud, cultivating a healthy business, and watching it bloom.

Fear Calls Us to Keep Steady by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR)


ear isn’t something that disappears entirely from our experiences, especially if we’re not working diligently to release the subconscious ego. Life often surprises us and takes us to the outer threshold of our comfort, popping up from some hidden, forgotten place. We fear the unknown. But when it appears, it’s a recognition that some part of us has been fragmented from our wholeness and power. Fear is a trial of growth. It comes to us at times to bring awareness to our unlimited nature. By holding steady and moving through our fear we establish a new relationship with ourselves: stronger in heart and in our inner, core Spirit. It fortifies our self-trust. This isn’t to say, however, that fear should be present within us, because, in truth, it’s a program and a construct intended to suppress our multi-dimensional potential. Creating fear is a negative alien agenda. If we succumb to it then we end up feeling less than who we really are, because we cannot find our sacred, inner balance, activate our DNA, and integrate our soul. So it’s a paradox that fear doesn’t need to exist, and yet when it does, it can be a profound tool for our evolution. If we’re willing to claim responsibility for it as it surfaces, then we can also choose to create freedom from it - to ascend with more certainty that we are supported by our Divine God Within, and that who we are is much more adaptable, flexible and courageous than we had previously known of ourselves. Our heart is for love - to give this to ourselves at times when life feels especially unsteady. Love in times of fear is the greatest healer. It’s available and accessible. When

we turn toward ourselves in compassion the contraction of fear will self-organize into the flow of expansion. www.AwakeningtheTruthWithin.com 18-years intuitive, energy psychotherapy and multidimensional healing facilitation.

How To Be Your Own Saviour

Part 2 of 3 t wasn’t till I surrendered to the fact that I needed to give up and drastically change the person I was, to enable me to be the man I am today and going forward. Once I changed the person I was, it allowed this assertive character to come out. It allowed the saviour to come out because this is the man that I needed to save me when I was an 11-year-old. This was a man I needed for all those trials and tribulations as a teen and in my 20s, and even up to a few years ago. This was the only character that I could’ve thought of, created in my imagination, in the lab of my mind to come through this, come through with bullet wounds and scars, yet made it through a better person, a stronger person, a wiser person, a person who is more bulletproof. Basically, I had to man up. I had to assert myself and all those things I’ve been putting off because I was too scared. I had to face it all. So how do you become the saviour of your life? Well, first of all sit down and realize that everything that’s going on in your life, the good and bad stuff and the bad stuff. You created it. On some vibrational level, on some unconscious level, you created this life. That’s you. And there may be other


parties that are involved in it but you created this life on some level. Just accept it. Accept it, you created it. But if you created it, you can also change it and create something in its place. So, ask yourself, if on speed dial there was the one person who past, present or future you could meet, if they got fully involved in your life, who would it be? Perhaps a celebrity, a mythical figure, a god, a TV show character, a superhero, a professional wrestler, a professional soccer player, a hockey player for my Canadian friends, you choose. But if you had to create someone that you knew and that person showed up in your life right now and took over your mind and your body, they would be able to take control and turn this wrong into a right and enable you to live through and burn through your own limitations. They could burn through the shackles of what the world’s put on you, that you allowed them to put on you in the first place because you allowed yourself to be socially programmed into doing this. It’s all you. It always comes back to you. But who would be that man or woman? Who would be that mythical creature that you would create who would be able to go through this trial and tribulation that you’re going through, be able to walk through that fire, able to walk metaphorically into a bunch of ongoing traffic or a

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.

“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: www.lukenosis.com and you can contact Dr. Luke at LUKEnosis to arrange an appointment at 613-8785874.

Are All Therapies Created Equal?


raditional medicine has limitations as most medications have side-effects. Disillusioned by this approach, alternative therapies are gaining popularity as they treat the human body as a whole i.e. physical, emotional, mental and spiritual (PEMS) states. Conditions given up by the medical community as ‘uncurable’, have been successfully treated with love and compassion, allowing individuals to have quality life, with some healed completely. These modalities do different things for different people and to varying extent – each having a rightful place in humanity’s journey. Quantum Sound Therapy (QST) uses your soul’s own tones to stimulate your body and soul’s selfhealing power, efficiently with ease and grace! It is your own whole brain healing through sound designed to bring your body into balance using a voice sample and scalar technology. Your voice is your energy signature that is more unique than your DNA. It carries your personality, beliefs, fears, worries and the vibrations of your health and wellbeing. As you continue to evolve, your voice constantly changes, providing a holistic measurement of your present state of consciousness that is scientifically reflected in your Personal Sound Frequency (PSF) graph.

Start Living Well

The client records a 10 second voice sample and emails it. Using award-winning software, the sample is analyzed, a 24-min sound track comprising frequencies your body is lacking generated and sent by email to the client. Arrangement is then made to provide a graph reading and where deemed appropriate, guidance to assist individuals in their journey provided. In QST, there is NOTHING TO LEARN OR DO. By SIMPLY LISTENING while going about your routine, the transmitted frequencies are assimilated in your body to remove PEMS blockages, fostering personal growth. There is NO TIME DEMAND placed on individual’s busy schedule. It can be ‘virtually’ administered to anyone, anywhere on the planet within minutes. Golden Light Therapies – in alignment with the manufacturer’s mission to make this technology available to all – you get your 24-minute personal sound track with graph interpretation for only $40 (taxes included).

Wise Words from Joanna Macy

Ian Prattis “Yes, it looks bleak. But you are still alive now. You are alive with all the others, in this present moment. And because the truth is speaking in the work, it unlocks the heart. And there’s such a feeling and experience of adventure. It’s like a trumpet call to a great adventure. How do we begin to deal with the plastic in the ocean that covers areas the size of countries? What are cell phones and microwaves doing to our biological rhythms? What exactly is in our food? How do we address genetic modification of crops? We are so hooked on all of this, on every level. How do we begin to contain it? Carrying capacity is the level most people talk about. It’s a defining aspect of the climate crisis. How will we grow the food we need given huge variations and extremities of weather? How will we handle the natural disasters and famines that will result from a chaotic climate? The deeper level is that consequences will extend far beyond the collapse of this civilization. The third level of crisis is the enormous increase in the rate of extinctions creating a loss of biodiversity so extreme that we can glimpse the doom of complex life forms. It takes highly differentiated, integrated and diverse systems to produce life forms complex enough for consciousness. The fourth level of crisis would be the destruction of everything more complex than anaeorobic life forms, because of the loss of our oxygen production in the oceans and on land. Our little minds think it must be over, but the very fact that we are seeing it is enlivening. We know we can’t possibly see the whole thing, because we are just one part of a vast interdependent whole–one cell in a larger body. So we don’t take our own perceptions as the ultimate. My world view has been so interwoven between the Buddhist teachings and living systems theory. They inform each other so powerfully. But even in Buddhism, where impermanence is a matter of course, there are no obvious concepts to deal with super-impermanence, in the sense that humans are now bringing an end to the Cenozoic era. In the best case, there may be an Ecozoic era to follow it. Continuing on our “business-as-usual” trajectory will acidify the oceans and trigger runaway global heating, epic mass extinction and a completely new cycle of geological time. A few climate scientists consider we may have already entered into runaway climate change. So the choice is how to live now. With the little time left, we could wake up more. We could allow this whole experience of the planet, which is intrinsically rewarding, to manifest through our heart-minds— so that the planet may see itself, so that life may see itself. Unfortunately the dominant institution of our


time has been created in the image of a psychopath, and it is legally mandated to behave as such. The American broadcast media is thoroughly controlled by corporate ownership or advertising revenue. They have reduced the population to a state of such stupidity. The experiential work, is to help people make friends with uncertainty, and reframe it as a way of coming alive. Because there are never any guarantees at any point in life. A major change is the relevance people are now finding in Native American teachings. There’s a deep respect for the wisdom that is there, and for the nobility of character that it fostered. I think that it is a precious addition to our triple gem—this fourth gem of our time—that the native peoples are speaking out.” See also: http://ianprattis.com/OurWorldIsBurning.html

Our World is Burning is an inspiring and informative read. Ian Prattis offers us valuable insight, wisdom and perspective in finding our way to a healthier world, one based on compassion and commitment, mindful of how everything we do impacts the whole.

Energy Therapy & Neuroplasticity Workshop


re you looking how to use the principles and tools from energy therapy and neuroplasticity to become more attuned to your body and mind and to teach them how to function more optimally on all levels? Energy therapies recognize energy as a vital, moving force that determines much about our health and wellbeing. The body can be healed by activating its natural healing energies and by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance. Neuroplasticity recognizes our brain’s ability to change its synaptic wiring by learning information and recording experience that results in a modified state of being. Plasticity enables us to evolve our habitual behaviours so that we can act and show up how we want to in life. Join us at Jaya’s one-day workshop and learn how to: • Use the principles and techniques of at least 5 reputable energy therapy modalities that will enable you to give yourself a basic healing session. • Identify and shift the energetic roots of mental, emotional patterns to change their effect on your overall health. • Track and deactivate bodily sensations that relate to bound survival energy from past thwarted fight, flight or freeze responses. • Use practical tools to calm, ground and rewire your nervous system and teach it how to self-regulate more effectively. • Use principles from neuroplasticity and quantum physics to help you to change your thoughts, moods and related habitual behaviors and create and anchor more of what you want in your life.

Once you learn and master how to command the energy and matter of your body, your whole life can begin to change in radical ways, beyond what we thought possible. Jaya Hollohan will be offering this workshop on Sunday, October 28th, 2018 from 10am-6pm in Centretown, Ottawa. Cost is $200 (or early bird $175 until October 7th). Please RSVP to: jaya@ energythrive.com to register and/or feel free to visit: www.energythrive.com and click on ‘Events’ for more information or to register. Jaya Hollohan MA is a Certified Advanced Parama BodyTalk Practitioner, Cranial Sacral, Lymphatic Drainage, Mindfulness Life Coach, Reiki Practitioner, Hatha Yoga Teacher and is currently undertaking Peter Levine PhD’s 3 year Somatic Experiencing Professional Training, which assists in trauma resolution. She has been working in the healing field for over 10 years and has a very busy energy therapy practice in Ottawa and Gatineau. Jaya is Author of the book: “Who We Are When We Thrive: Remembering Happiness and Rediscovering Health”. Armed for Greatness is about the journey of Jessica, a teenager who starts to attract abusive relationships at an early age and all through her adult life. Her biggest fear is that she will transfer the abusive cycle to her two children. The book is not only the story of my life as Jessica but it is a practical and positive guide with personal development exercises. As an adult reader with children, you will get a clear vision of how your behavior can affect a child negatively and how you can change that to become a positive role model. As a teenager or young adult reader, you will understand how beliefs have been transferred to you unconsciously and by using and applying the tools in this book, you will free yourself from any blocks that are keeping you from reaching your true potential and greatness. For more information on the book, readers can go to my website www.armedforgreatness.com


October 2018




any people today believe that the origins of life on this planet can be explained by an evolutionary process, where inorganic material spontaneously produced organisms who “crawled out of the primeval mud,” and who, after eons of time culminated in the human being. This is the theory propounded by Charles Darwin in his book, The Origin of Species where he gives incontrovertible evidence of organisms mutating in response to their environment through ‘natural selection’ or survival of the fittest. However he did not claim that this process explained the appearance of the first living organisms. He said: “Our ignorance is as profound on the origin of life as on the origin of force or matter” (The Origin of Species) He nevertheless theorised that evolution could be responsible for the origins of life, though he makes this caveat: “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down”. (The Origin of Species)

Darwin was working in the mid nineteenth century, when cells were considered simple accumulations of protoplasm. The invention of the electron microscope came almost 100 years later, in 1936 and was followed by the discovery of DNA in 1953. The extraordinary complexity of the sub-atomic world was revealed - a world of which Darwin was unaware. The self-confessed flaw in Darwin’s evolutionary theory is now coming to light: Many microbiologists now believe it is impossible for DNA to have evolved by the “numerous, successive, slight modifications” required for Darwin’s theory to hold. There are two main reasons: 1) There can be no cellular functioning without DNA. It is the ‘command centre’ of every living cell. Therefore DNA must have been in place before


any evolutionary modifications could take place. Without it, the necessary systems of reproduction, sensory capacity and adaptability to environment could not have been acquired. 2) “Irreducible Complexity”: a term coined by microbiologist Michael Behe. He and others, claim that DNA is of such inter-related complexity that it is virtually impossible for it to have developed incrementally; any evolutionary antecedants would have been dysfunctional. Behe said in Darwin’s Black Box: “Evolution cannot produce something where there would be a non-functioning intermediate. ‘Natural Selection’ only selects those structures which are functional”. Biologist Frank Salisbury said in Nature of DNA: “The entire system must come into being as one unit, or it is worthless.” So, if DNA, which contains all the genetic information necessary to make a daisy into a daisy or me into me, could not have developed progressively through time, then how could it have arisen? Here we get into the old controversy between the “evolutionists” - those who believe in the spontaneous generation of life from inorganic material, and “creationists” who believe that life is the handiwork of a Creator /God. Today many scientists ardently uphold Darwin’s evolutionary theory; indeed it has been widely presented as fact, rather than the hypothesis it is. Einstein said : “Science and Religion are branches of the same tree” However there are many who see the two as irreconcilable. It may be difficult to accept the concept of a Mind/Intelligence higher than our own. DESIGN And yet there is evidence of a mind at work in the design of our DNA. The fundamental property of all design is: Idea Precedes Implementation. Before we consider making anything it first exists in our mind as a mental construct or idea. Life is preceded by DNA, which contains the blueprint/design/idea for all life forms ...for a bacterium - an oak tree- or a human being. The DNA molecule represents more than itself - it is the design for an entire living organism. Designs require a designer - a creative mind. And in the case of DNA a supremely intelligent one. Every one of the 37 trillion cells which comprise the human body contains the DNA/genetic material for the entire body. Each cell extracts from its DNA the information it needs to perform its own particular task, according to its designated role in the body...... and how to best serve the interests of the entire organism, sometimes giving precedence to another organ in greater need of a certain nutrient. This is a holistic communications network far more aware and sophisticated than any man-made system. It is a spectacular process born of a spectacular design. e

INFORMATION There is a difference between ‘pattern’ and ‘design’. We see self-replicatory growth patterns in fractal formations throughout the natural world . It is information which mainly differentiates pattern from design; fractals carry no information, whereas the information carried in DNA is immense. It is an encoding and decoding mechanism that stores and transmits the message of the living organism. The code consists of the letters A,C,T,G, which in 3 billion interactions determine cellular function. Codes are a means to an end . Information is always distinct from the medium that carries it, whether it be a book or DNA, and always conveys the intentions of an intelligent mind.

THE HUMAN BODY The trillions of cells which comprise our body interact with eachother moment by moment and are orchestrated so brilliantly that we are unaware of the incredible activity going on within us. We give no thought to the amazing transformation that a ham sandwich goes through to become us ... a part of our cellular identity. In a matter of hours it becomes completely transformed into human material, requiring no conscious effort from us.... except maybe to decide whether it tasted good..!. Many scientists believe that life can be explained by purely biochemical processes, but they have been unable to prove that these could self-organise into living organisms...and are unwilling to admit the possibility of an unknown Mind / Intelligence behind these processes.

SCIENCE AND RELIGION If we can accept that there is a Mind with an “Intelligent Design” which underlies creation, then we step beyond the parameters of Science and into the domain of Religion /Spirituality. However there are many, including Einstein, who think there is no distinct boundary between the two ; that Truth transcends manmade boundaries . All the monotheistic religions are founded on the principle that there is a Creator..(whether he is named God, Allah, Yahweh, Brahman or The Life Force) ....who is “ omnipotent and ubiquitous” - who created everything and is to be found in everything. Science has revealed the marvels of DNA without which no life can exist .... is present in all living things... and shows all the hallmarks of being the “Intelligent Design” of a great Mind It can be overwhelming to believe that we owe not just our own existence, but all life around us to a Higher Intelligence, yet it can be argued that DNA research makes this conclusion preferable to the alternative: that inorganic material can, in a single generation, organise itself into a complex coding system which produces life. If Darwin were alive today, I wonder where he would stand on the issue.... Rosemary Scragg Ottawa, August 2018


Understanding of the self


t is important to know, understanding of our emotional and logical disturbance is the first steps to recognize and identifying needed professional help. This short article is all about how to evaluate and understand ourselves to know in which category we have difficulty to function. It is true that all categories that I will mention are related to each other yet, getting rid of one conflict will help us to deal easily with few others. Foundations of understanding our emotional difficulties built in our core belief system, internally and systematically. The essential element is being aware of the self and its boundaries and directions. This will enable us to regulate, learn and give attention to the needed internal and external information to form skills for required tasks and taking our past experiences in our consideration. Now matter of communication in variety levels in form of verbal, none verbal, symbolic way of communication helps us to reflect and understand our lives through social and personal interaction. We also need to recognize and identify, differentiate and distinguish circumstances of the self from fantasy and reality, past, future and present moment. I work with imagination and I believe imagination is core of our mental state that is reflections of our behaviour, desire, needs, wants, goals and belief system. Self-esteem gives us sense of control which must not be out of reality neither viewed unrealistically. Our impulses are experienced internally yet, reflection of it is external one, then self must be able to control and regulate impulses within an appropriate adopted behaviour that matches logical way of doing things and social norms. Our ability to express and cope is part of our defense mechanism and inappropriate cope and defense mechanism will be mistaken as defense mechanism. We also have ability to adopt and when this skill is not exists or not developed then the self will be lost in confusion with not being able to define the self, self’s properties and its boundaries. Above points are not complete picture of self evaluation but they are basic and fundamental one. Just going through above matters even in the surface will helps us to recognize possible emotional disturbance in our lives journey.

Understand Yourself on a Deeper Level than ever Before


e all experience moments in our lives when we feel so exhausted by our frustration with a physical or emotional struggle, life almost feels unbearable. When reflecting upon these issues, many of us begin noticing negative patterns that keep repeating in various aspects of our lives. For some reason, however, regardless of what we know and understand, we are unable to end the agonizing cycles. What far fewer people experience is the powerful role our Akashic records play in all of this, and the way learning how to access them — on your own or through an Akashic reading — provides ad unparalleled opportunity for growth, healing, and improvement in our relationships with friends, family, colleagues, lovers, and even ourselves.

What are the Akashic records? The term akashic records is derived from the word akasha (आकाश), meaning “ether” or “atmosphere” in Sanskrit, or awash (आकाश), meaning “sky” or “heaven” in Hindi. Simply put, the Akashic record is an enormous library containing recordings of everything that has ever happened in the past, everything that is happening in the present moment, and everything that ever will happen in the future. Imagine that library filled with this specific information regarding each and every person on the planet. When you gain access to and read your own personal book, you are able to learn about the unseen or unknown negative influences affecting your life and your relationships, which you can then “clean out” in order to keep them getting in the way of your future happiness. While this concept is one that can be found within established religions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, the practice of cleansing your personal Akasha or “infinite space” is something that you can practice even if you’re only spiritual, and not religious. Here are 5 ways knowing how to access your Akashic records for reading and cleansing means knowing how to find true happiness and peace.


1. By helping you identify and remove roadblocks to finding true love If you wonder why you sometimes seem to push people away, cycling through friends or lovers, or perhaps rarely even attracting them, the reasons these issues are affecting you energetically show up in the Akasha. There are limitless possibilities for why you’re being held back in your life, including aspects of yourself you are currently unaware of, such as spiritual “contracts” and much more. An Akashic reading can help you identify the particular roadblocks to happiness in your romantic relationship, so you can then cleanse and erase them. 2. By motivating you to work through physical and mental health struggles If you struggle with either physical or mental health issues, an Akashic cleansing might help get you on the path to a better life. The Akashic realm is a perfect place for initiating change from the inside out. You can clear out trapped energies, including limiting belief systems and images you hold, and see how the quality of your life improves. 3. By empowering you to work through and release physical and emotional pain Chronic pain management is not yet well-understood by the medical community, although, thankfully, new means and methodologies are emerging regularly. Without getting too technical on the “science” of the Akasha and the human body, we view our bodies from the perspective of quantum physics, we are all integrated beings comprised of vibration, light, and other fields of energy. Understanding this notion might require a paradigm shift in your own view of the human body, breaking it down to a more physicsbased, particle-level vision of yourself, but that being said, once you shift your vibrations through an Akashic records cleansing, the underlying causes of chronic pain can often be healed. 4. By showing you your soul’s purpose When you understand your soul’s purpose and what you most wish to accomplish or contribute, your life starts to make more sense and may lead you to consciously begin making different, more purposeful and fulfilling choices. The information you gain from an Akashic reading can also give you the boost in confidence you’ve been needing in order to get going on ideas or projects you have felt were right, even when you didn’t understand why. It is important to understand, however, that the information you receive during an Akashic consultation about your soul’s purpose does not usually read like a job description. It actually offers you something much better — a clear view of what you are here to do — which you can then incorporate into everything aspect of your life.

5. By helping you reach your professional goals An Akashic reading can help you leverage a deeper pool of knowledge through which you can achieve better results. Every business, not-for-profit, group, and organizational team has an Akashic record, and you can tap into this source of wisdom in ways that assist you with decision making, ideas, and opportunities for success and advancement. Perhaps you would like to try and distinguish between your team’s best and highest interest versus it’s most profitable interest. Maybe you would like to work on strategies to improve the likelihood of a promotion. You are now in the “know” of this incredible tool to improve the quality of your work life, Akashic reading and healing! Akashic reading and healing can help you find happiness by improving your personal relationships, reducing or eliminating pain, clarifying your soul’s purpose, and enhancing your professional life. Naturally, there are many, many, more ways to improve your life’s adventure with Akashic reading and healing, so keep visiting your library regularly!

Am I Really As Good As I Think I Am?


ixteen weeks ago, I embarked on a personal, intuitive training journey. I became a certified intuitive life strategist + coach. My teacher, Tess Adams, a Nova Scotia woman took me to my biggest skillsets and made sure that I not only practiced them well but also grew within them. She asked me to reflect on the experience as my final homework. Here are my reflections. This was a one-on-one training that I appreciated and enjoyed a lot. Our allotted time together was approximately one hour per week. In the first five weeks, I was introduced to intuitive tools that allowed me to experience myself differently and more profoundly. I also recognized that I had my own toolbox that was also effective. I gained more confidence in my intuition, my skillset and in my life approach because I received constructive feedback. I was asked to work with at least 3 people as a coach type person. I ended up with 6. My niche is inner self works and soul energy medicine services. It didn’t take long before the subjects that needed to be discussed were of a spiritual nature. I am also a healer. It didn’t take long before the conversations included healing. I am also a shamanic soul healer and it didn’t take long for that ingredient to also show up in the mix. My intention for taking this training was to learn how to think coaching. I have so much to share but I needed to learn how to dispense it bite-sized. The approach taught, showed me how to do that.

Subtle Energy Discernment Training

Diane Oliver Intuitive Life Strategist, Shamanic Healer, ''Spirit in 3D'' Teacher

By speaking-healing-teaching to the same women once a week for five weeks, I was able to hone my unique skillset and see the effects these skills had on these six women! I was able to see how important the message of the language of the Soul really is and how powerful it is to help someone effect profound change. I was also able to see myself grow in the process. Each one of the six women volunteers had different needs. One needed to come into contact with the Medicine Wheel and needed help rewriting her resumé; another learned that by focusing on one thing at a time, even if it’s just a short time, she could accomplish more in a day and find a balance in her life; another needed compassion in a big way; another needed to connect to another empathetic person. It was all very amazing and rewarding. We would set the intention for the meeting and it took over the conversation. By asking questions and learning to stay on track in our conversations, these women had breakthroughs they were not expecting. I simply loved watching their intuition at work! Now, sixteen weeks later, my head is still spinning but I have no doubt that if you are looking to move forward with a project or with your own personal development, my inner self works approach will be of benefit to you. These sessions end up being transformational. It’s hard to put into words. You need to experience it for yourself. Are you ready for a four-week intuitive journey with your Self and me? Check out my website. If you believe you are ready and are shy, I understand – I will help you with that shyness, compassionately, harmlessly and judgment-free. This may not be an earth shaking life experience for you but rather one where you are happier on a day-to-day basis because you rediscover the joy of balance and inner peace by hearing yourself speak your own truth.

Relax ~ Refresh ~ Re - Discover

Indian Head Massage


ndian Head massage gives you space to relax into a quiet, calm and welcomed environment. Who knows what may happen if you discover a ‘stillness from within’ allowing a new awareness to emerge. Are you noticing added pressure right now, with the change of routine, to help your children get back into their schedule for school? Or, an emptiness that you are feeling with your adult children leaving the family home? Or, aging parents that need more immediate attention? Or, frustrated that you feel like you’re waiting again, bothered by carry too much weight, with a rumble from within screaming…”when is it my turn”? Yet, how can we possibility slow down to speed up right now? Throughout this edition of the tone, there are many suggestions. For me, I offer an Indian Head massage treatment. Reported benefits of this wonderful practice are feelings of general relaxation, to releasing tight and painful muscles, easing stiffness, along with breaking down knots in muscles. As well, there is possible improved lymphatic drainage which helps in the removal of waste products and toxins. IHM is similar to that deep relaxation when you get a good shampoo from your hairstylist or barber; and lasting more than a few minutes! Most of the IHM treatment is done sitting in a chair; ending on the massage table. Wear a light, comfortable top or sweater and there is no need to disrobe.

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, RRC, CRC ver the past few weeks, I’ve been seeing lots of posts on social media about “stillness”. It must be a sign so let’s look at this for a moment. We live in a world where there is a 24-hour news cycle which is constantly bombarding us with information. There are work and family requirements that need our constant attention. I see people walking their dogs focusing on their phones. I even see people riding their bikes and checking their phones while in motion. We never disconnect from all of this and after a while, it wears us down. Rant over! For a high energy person like me, learning how to be still was not the easiest thing to master. Even to this day, I need to be in motion because if I’m not, I then feel like I’m not accomplishing something. I’ve struggled with this and I’m sure this sounds familiar to you as well. The flip side to this is that once you learn to take time for yourself, it soon becomes addictive and a requirement in your daily routine. Start by blocking off 15 minutes and put up a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your life. Gradually work this up to 30 minutes. Get up 30 minutes earlier in the morning so that you can have your “me” time. Turn off the radio in your car and don’t answer your phone while driving around. Go for a walk outside without your phone. I’ve had to tell my loved ones that when I’m having my “me” time, I am not available. You don’t need to go spend time alone in a cave either. Life can wait. The greatest benefit to the practice of “stillness” is an increase amount of mental clarity. With a still mind, you will be able to hear the answers to your questions. By being still and focusing on your breath, you will be able to connect to your true self. Give it a try. Daniel Roy is the principal instructor of the Ottawabased Praxis Wealth Institute.

DI AMON D APPROAC H® OT TAWA INNER SUPPORT A Diamond Approach Seminar Open to the Public and Current Students The Diamond Approach is a path of wisdom through direct experience. It recognizes the uniqueness of each individual and adapts itself to each person’s needs at the time. It does not require that people adapt to some ideal, but welcomes people as they are and helps them to take the natural next step for their unique development.

Inner support is one of the pure forms in which our Being manifests. It is always available as a groundedness,

definiteness, and certainty that provides the self with confidence. In this weekend we will explore where true inner support comes from, and what prevents it from manifesting for us more often in our daily lives.


The group is non-residential and will meet 3 times a year in a weekend format. Also, there will be a 2-day weekend retreat via Zoom webinar in the winter. These retreats will include evocative teachings, meditation and body-based practices, experiential exercises, and self-inquiry.

Friday, November 2nd, 2018 6:30pm - 9:30pm (registration begins 5:45pm)
