Anxiety Relief with Homeopathy – A Case Report



Naturopaths treating anxiety, arry visited our clinic at a hectic time in his life. depression and other mood After buying a house, he had suddenly lost his job disorders with homeopathy. and was now finding himself worried about making his payments. What is more, he was expecting a 3rd child and was also had worried about how well his wife could Ottawa Gatineau Homeopathy Clinic handle their growing family. She relied heavenly on him 819-774-1104, for many life decisions and he was starting to feel under M. Akbari & K. Khan, naturopaths & homeopaths more and more pressure. Recently, he was getting sudden panic attacks that would appear out of the blue. At this time, his head would spin and get suddenly warm and heavy. He was also thinking back with some regret on his years as a student. He felt like he had not studied hard enough and had therefore not created a “strong foundation” to build his life upon. He relied a lot on his siblings to help and now was feeling uncertainty at a time when he was expected to take on much responsibility. Physically, he had just suffered a bout of severe back pain. Analysis: His worries about money, house and work point to mineral remedies from the 4th row of the periodic table. He feels a lot of incapacity in this situation, like he is not up to the task. This points to the 1st column. This brings us to kali sulphuricum, a homeopathic remedy made from potassium. It also happens to be a great remedy for back pain. I give him this remedy in a 1M potency. Progress: After this, his panic attacks stopped and his anxiety was greatly reduced. His low back pain also got much better. He also felt more confident about his ability to provide for his family. A few months later he welcomed his new daughter into the world with great joy.

Improve Your Life With These Strategies


our life may not be exactly as you would like it to be, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it better. While success comes rapidly at first, it can slow down before too long. The key is to consistently make progress over a long period of time. Becoming an expert in any field requires this understanding. If you are motivated and patient, you can become great at anything. Think about any skill you want to develop, or any part of your life you want to improve or enhance. How much progress would you have made if you had started 10 years ago and worked on it each day? Develop a philosophy of consistent improvement with these strategies: 1. Realize that a tiny amount of improvement each day is enough. A wee bit of improvement each day, or even each week or month, is more than enough to achieve anything you desire. 2. Practice daily. Regular practice is the key. Mindless practice is not enough. You must know what you are trying to accomplish with your practice each day. Striving to improve is crucial. Remember, the intention is to be better today than you were yesterday. 3. Be patient. Progress often comes quickly at first and then slows. Eventually, progress is barely perceptible. This is true for any field. The importance of patience can’t be overemphasized. Be patient and progress will come.

If you put in the time and remain patient, you can become amazingly good at anything. The key is increasing your knowledge and lots of practice. Avoid falling into the trap of wanting perfection. Perfection can’t be obtained. Instead, put your faith in progress. A small amount of progress each day created the Grand Canyon. Achieving your goals is a piece of cake in comparison!! Moira Hutchison Mindfulness Coach, Tarot Card Reader & Energy Healer 613.432.1239


Have you ever noticed that when we feel stuck - we become the expert of everything that does NOT work... The truth is that in order for a problem to exist - the solution must also exist! To get started feeling *unstuck* hop on over to and sign up for Step One of “The Letting Go Process” - it’s free!!

4. Get a mentor. A mentor is an expert with an interest in your success. Getting regular feedback from someone that knows what they are talking about can be much more effective than going at it alone. Get expert help if you can.

Shattered Earth:

Approaching Extinction Ian Prattis This is my 18th book – the most difficult yet. It is about our broken world – particularly with respect to the impending Extinction brought about by Climate Emergency. The difficulty for me has been the darkness of Extinction despite the pacifying alternative of Impermanence. The testimonials blew me away – here are a few. Claudiu Murgan, Author - Ian Prattis’s previous books - Failsafe: Saving the Earth From Ourselves; New Planet New World, and Our World is Burning – should be part of our schools’ curriculum. Shattered Earth makes no exception. It has an abrasive message for those that still don’t want to understand that the existing ecological balance is broken and only a sudden halt of the destructive actions fueled by greed and power could dim down the effects. A must read for all that care about their legacy. Jana Begovic, Contributing Editor of «Ariel Chart Literary Magazine.»- …..Dr. Prattis is a recipient and bearer of the ancestral wisdom, He shines the light

on what is important for our survival, and that of the generations to come, on the urgency with which we ought to act while there is still a glimmer of hope left before it is too late. If humankind wants to survive, it needs to unite in this very late hour, and attempt to reverse the human greed, callousness and cruelty inflicted upon Earth. This powerful, sobering and timely message of this book should be shared far and wide before it is too late. Anita Rizvi, Therapist - Shattered Earth: Approaching Extinction is humankind peering into a broken mirror and seeing the stark reality of Climate Emergency reflected there. Without leniency, Dr. Prattis forewarns of a world with ‘no beauty rising from the ashes’ should we stay on our present course. Amidst the desolate and barren narrative described so beautifully in this book, a solution is born in the mud pits. Civilization can set a new course that will allow our natural state of interconnectedness to emerge.  Shattered Earth is brilliant and asks something of each of us - to become part of the only force that can jointly topple the creators of Climate Emergency. With Dr. Prattis there, it is time for the Lotus Revolution. The book will be released at the end of October2019. Copies can be picked up at my home in Ottawa with a bonus. With each purchase you can take home – FREE – any one of my prior books. Email

Aromatic Italy?


days ago I was gazing into a sky filled with bright sunlight and a vast expanse of shining white clouds. Out my window. On the plane. On my way to Italy. I have been extremely fortunate this year. First I travelled to Australia in pursuit of indigenous aromatic plants, now to seek bergamot and other citrus oils native to Italy! And whatever else I find along the way. Now one week into my Italian adventure. My senses have been filled with the colours, architecture and flowing elegance of the Italian language. However, I have yet to find a store specializing in essential oils. There are many Erboristas, which have some oils, but primarily deal in synthetic perfumes and herbal tea blends. The oils I thought would be ubiquitous are not in evidence. When we asked in our stilted Itlaian, half miming what we were looking for,

Dolphin Dentistry

the clerks went behind the cash, into cupboards and under shelves to pull out the few they stocked- eucalyptus, lavender and rosemary. Hmmm. What’s a girl to do? An on-line search turned up perfume stores and farmacias specializing in homeopathy (which is awesome, by the way). Distillers are outside of town and not necessarily open to the public. Has it become such an online world that we cannot physically find specialized products like essential oils in stores? Or is it my naivete to assume that I would find oils with ease in their country of origin? Regardless, this trip has expanded my world view once again and I feel so very lucky to have had the opportunity to experience so much beauty over the past ten days. It has been a truly sensual experience, sampling olive oils with sharp fruity undertones, smelling fragrant rose bushes and boxwood, visiting medieval churches with beautiful frescos or walking the ancient walls protecting the old city of Lucca.

Nurturing the Dream

By Daniel Roy CD, BA, MA, CFP, EPC, CIM, FCSI, CIWM, CRC n the back of my business card, I have the phrase Dare to Dream printed on it. I put that there on purpose so that the people I gave this card to would take a moment to do an inventory of their current lives. This is called a pattern interrupt because it temporarily stops people that are caught up in their current thoughts. It is estimated that we have well over 9000 thoughts that go through our minds daily, with most of them being repetitive crap that serve no purpose whatsoever. This is important to know because as you move forward with your dream, you will be confronted with many obstacles along the way. Some will be completely out of your control while others will be self-inflicted. One of the biggest lessons that I had to learn was to figure out was how to filter out all the negative, selfdestructive thoughts that kept installing themselves on this endless feedback loop. This is your monkey brain at work. I still have them today, but they do not control my life like before.

The key element to this is to stay focused on your objective regardless of whatever is being thrown at you. Develop that bulldog determination to get to your objective knowing that you have all the resources at your disposal to get the job done. Don’t question your abilities. If you feel that you need help, ask for it. If you feel that you need to upgrade your skills, then do it. Be mindful of your thoughts and fill your mind with supportive ideas and language. Don’t get discouraged when things are not happening at the speed that you were hoping for. The Universe will always provide at the right time and place. So be kind to yourself. Remember that success is the pursuit of a worthy idea. If that dream is important for you, then do whatever it takes to see it through. Dare to Dream!

» Lynne Cardinal




remember when I first heard that I could objectively watch my thoughts, look at them like clouds in the sky, drifting by and watch as they come and go. I was amazed, realizing that for me to accurately look at my thoughts there had to be a part of me residing behind, or beyond those thoughts. There began a fascinating journey of exploration. Was I my thoughts? Did they have power over me, or me over them? What is a thought really? I was amazed that as human beings we can function so well while lacking such basic understanding. Give this a try…walk around while being aware that a part of you exists as a free observer, right behind your thoughts. Watch if you have the power to change certain thoughts. Watch to see if you’re attached to these thoughts (i.e., my resentment, my idea). My own investigation years ago led me to grasp that thoughts are malleable, and they can be changed. I read once that there is a very small space in our mind, a miniature pause, that allows us to choose our thoughts and reactions. For example, in a heated conversation this small pause is commonly used to decide if we should answer more directly, or to simply let it go. Meditation has been an integral part of my life for decades, and I have used this principle of observing my thoughts to experiment and deepen my meditation experience. For example, if you have strong thoughts and opinions about an environmental or political issue what happens when you put these thoughts out of your mind? What happens if they disappeared? Visualize putting them aside while you meditate. Then, a deep peace arises, and like dawn, the sense of calmness appears.

In this time of awareness regarding an influx of information, I find that collectively, and even worldwide, there is an additional pressure to our lives. It is important to be aware, and to voice our opinions. However, getting a respite is essential to our wellbeing. This will even help us react with more clarity, keeping our priorities intact. Balancing the inner experience with the outer experience is core to maintaining clarity and still grow as a human being. As time progresses, I remain aware of how much potential we have as human beings. Meditation, hypnosis and therapy are tools to access this potential and help us move forward in our lives. Moving forward in our evolutionary path may be the most satisfying experience. Lynne Cardinal sees clients individually in Hull and Stittsville.

Channel for the Ascended Masters by Monica Dumont


ove is one of the most basic things we can speak to you about because it is so natural to you and to everything that exists as it is part of everything and everyone. As you begin to acknowledge yourself as being love and a part of love, you begin to enrich and expand those aspects of you. You begin to use that energy to transform and transmute those parts of you that need that specific frequency in themselves. You begin to create in your everyday life through the perspective of love; touching the lives of those who come around you and those who are associated to you, through the connection of the higher consciousness. When love is your focus in your life, the world changes instantaneously for you for that is all you are able to see in any situation, in any encounter you may have. As you recognize this more and more, your name will also change. We do not mean that as the name that was given to you in your current incarnation, we mean that as your frequency will change and you will expand more and more, and you will grow more and more through grace, through ease, all in the name of love, all in the name of your highest purpose here on earth. May peace be with you. Monica Dumont is a Divine channel, healer and regression therapist.

Reiki = Love


Written by Rev. Alexis Nicol o you ever get the sense that you are living in an illusion? Some say that everything we see on the outside is a reflection of what’s going on inside. Not just our personal inside, but within the collective minds of all peoples. I lean towards this belief as it gives me a certain amount of responsibility about what’s going on around me. Usually this concept isn’t too difficult for me to relate to. Although, I must admit that on occasion I do fall into the illusion’s trap. When the darkness sneaks in, when the world around me is filled with feelings of anger, pain, sadness, guilt, hopelessness and despair, I feel miserable and blaming. No matter what the day brings, the world just won’t be a happy place - it could be the weather, an argument, disappointment in someone or something that hasn’t gone according to my ego’s lovely will. Sometimes it can be difficult to admit that I’m still holding onto past stories or succumbing to toxic news poisoning my mind. Thankfully, I have discovered that I have a choice; I can let it consume me or invite it to guide me to the part of my being beseeching attention and healing. It feels satisfying to acknowledge the life I have created and take responsibility for both, the good and troubling times. Happily, for the most part I see peace, beauty, joy and calmness. If this belief has any truth, then perhaps by taking a little time to check what our surroundings are telling us we’ll have another amazing tool for improving our life. We can use this awareness for spiritual growth. We can work on cleaning up the parts that causes us unease and that we don’t like in our lives. Thus, enabling us to create and reflect outwardly what we’ve kept hidden and protected within and let the light and beauty we have shine out. If we all made the necessary changes for the better what a heavenly Earth, we would share.


Alexis believes in a Wholistic Metaphysical approach to healing mind, body and soul. She combines natural healing modalities in her practice. 613-263-7925

Sri Chinmoy Answers

Question: How can I conquer my fear? SRI CHINMOY: We feel that fear is something which exists for everyone in our daily life. No, fear cannot exist if we see the opposite of fear which is strength, inner strength, inner power; and the source of this inner power is the soul. Fear exists precisely because we do not feel that the Almighty is our Source. We have to feel like God’s child, all the time seated in His lap. A child has no fear because consciously or unconsciously he is always bringing his soul to the fore. He feels that he has his mother and father to protect him. But when we grow up, we feel there is nobody to think of us, take care of us or look after us. When we are thirteen or fourteen years old, we begin to feel our responsibility. We feel we have to do everything and that everybody is deserting us. We are afraid of God because we feel that He is omnipotent and impersonal. But He is not standing in front of us with an iron rod at every moment. He is standing before us with all His Love and because of His Love we are drawn toward Him. His very Love is His omnipotent Power. Is there any power that can conquer the universe? The universe, God’s entire creation, can be conquered only by His Love. We see that with our human love we may conquer people, but afterwards frustration looms large with many other problems. But when we offer an iota of divine love, we can enter into the hearts of hundreds of human beings and feel safe. We feel that we have built homes in hundreds of hearts through our divine love. When the Creator is pleased with us, when the Creator takes care of us, we need not be afraid of His creation because the Creator is infinitely more powerful than His creation. When we think of our Almighty Father, the Divine, the Absolute, the Infinite, we have to think of Him as all Love. When we love God as our very own and enter into Him and into His creation, we conquer fear. Visit for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

Introducing Kirtan with SOULHUM by Zofia Kumas-Tan


his is a story about a group of friends, meeting every month to sing yoga mantras and to catch up on life. This kind of gathering is called kirtan. Finding a kirtan community is a bit like finding a new family. I found my kirtan family in 2015, during yoga teacher training at Wishingtree Yoga in Kanata. Every month since then, we’ve met to sing mantras and to play along with our instruments. Usually, one person leads a song, singing one phrase at a time, and the others echo the same words and melody back. It’s a beautiful give-and-take, a weaving together, a co-creation. The mantras themselves are songs to the Divine, a channel through which we explore our relationship to the Divine and our own Divine nature. In 2018, we decided to bring monthly kirtan to Chelsea, QC, where I live; that December, we offered

our first kirtan at Vraie Nature Yoga. As all this unfolded, I found my passion for kirtan growing. I wanted to introduce more people to this beautiful form of yoga practice. And so, SOULHUM came to be. Allow me to introduce our kirtan band, SOULHUM: Scot on cajón/percussion; Cherisse and Liv (my kids) on vocals and percussion; and me, Zofia, on vocals and harmonium. My husband is behind the scenes, offering support, encouragement and inspiration. Our approach is to keep it simple. Yogic mantras are in Sanskrit, but we choose mantras that are shorter and easier to learn. We want you to become familiar with the mantras, to feel them, even to hear them in your mind after you leave! Kirtan can be an experience for the whole family - a time for all ages to connect through music and mantra, and to feel restored and uplifted by this simple, yet powerful practice. Our next kirtan at Vraie Nature Yoga (3 ch. Versant Sud, Chelsea) is on Saturday, October 26, 4-5 pm. Free, and open to all. For future kirtan dates, find me on Facebook or at

She will be greatly missed by the many touched by her beautiful soul. She is now no longer in pain but the peace we all yearn to see not just in eternal life but also on our journey together on this beautiful planet. The weekend we will be truly celebrating her life and her new life in Spirit.

Thank you all for sharing with your family and friends! These are times to link our minds and hearts to hope in meeting we are indeed.. “ The One’s We have been waiting to meet! – We are the change we yearn to see! It is happening!” -- Judith Matheson

Pain vs Pleasure - Pt 2


t’s great motivation to pull yourself out of the flaming pit for a moment, for a few months. But you will keep going back because that’s how we motivate ourselves when it’s about getting away from pain. You’ve got to start motivating yourself. No, you’ve got to start inspiring yourself. Motivation is transient. It comes, it goes. Inspiration’s always there in the background. Like a screensaver on your computer. If you were to just stop for a moment, that screensaver would pop back up again. So we need to end this in your life. I did have a beautiful cloth somewhere but that cloth’s gone right now. So I’m going to dirty my hands for you. I care about all of you when I’m doing these videos. What if we cleared all of that and what if you’re in a massive amount of pain now from your problem, whatever it was? You’re feeling it every day, moment to moment? It’s traumatizing you, it’s a 10 out of 10. But rather than just get to midway and then do that loop, what about if you focused on what you want? What if you suffer from the symptoms of anxiety and you’re saying, “I just don’t want to have panic attacks any day.” If I say to you, don’t think of a blue tree inside your mind right now, what do you have to do? You have to think of the thing you don’t want.

So, if you have an anxiety, instead of thinking, “Oh, I don’t want to have panic attacks,” don’t think of a blue tree. What about if you just stayed focused on what you wanted? I want to be free. I want to be happy. Have control of my biology, my mind, being free, having experiences I want to have, balance in my life. What if you were overweight? Massive amount of pain, right? Instead of saying to yourself, “Oh, I just want to lose the weight so I’m not fat anymore”, you focus on, “I want to be sexy. I want to be lean. I want the best health that I can have for the rest of my life, so I can make the rest of my life the best of my life.” And you’re focused on this inspiration. Motivation? Not what it’s cracked up to be. Inspiration? Awesome! What if the person is addicted to some kind of substance - cigarettes or drugging or drinking. Instead of, “I just want to be sober and I’m always going to be a victim and I’m always going to be an addict.” If you think like that, you’re going to be like that. It becomes your reality. What if you’re in a massive amount of pain for your addiction right now? You’ve hit rock bottom, you’ve hit your threshold, what would I like to have instead? I’d like to run my body, run my mind. I’d like to be happy, healthy, having social connections, romantic connections with people. Love and connecting with people deeply, having the best kind of health I can have. No longer trying to escape from


“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 2019

“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.

Introduction to Unity


some kind of pain that’s unresolved in my life. Because I resolve all of my issues day to day and have beautiful connections. What if you focused on what you wanted? What if you gave yourself that pleasure? This is all about being inspired, folks. Motivation? Not what it’s cracked out to be. Looping - end it now. You know the best time to cut the loop is, to finish the loop? As soon as you realize you’re looping. Cut the loop now. Get rid of your transient motivation. Inspiration. Motivation from pain? No more. This motivation dies very, very quickly. Motivated by pleasure, what you want in your life, inspiration stays the whole time. So where do you need to be inspired in your life to make those shifts? Think about it. Get inspired. Focus on what you want. Focus on the pleasure of what you want. If you want to see that lovely board a bit closer, there you go Always Believe, Luke Michael Howard PhD Ottawa Clinical Hypnotist

his is the second of five articles on the principles that shape our beliefs at Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa. The principles were first written for the Unity movement, but they reflect the laws of the universe. They apply to everyone, all the time. If you also share our beliefs in these universal principles, please come join us. All are welcome. Unity Principle #1 states that “God – or All That Is, the Ultimate Reality, the Presence, Spirit, the Universe, the Divine, etc.-- is Absolute Good, everywhere present.” The second Principle takes this idea further, stating that we are the expression of the Divine in human form. Consider the analogy of God as an ocean: Principle #2 says that we are each an individual wave in that ocean. We are not the whole ocean but we are of the same composition and part of the Divine (ocean) flow. And, if the Divine is good, it naturally follows that we too are good. You. Me. Everyone is good. Taking it further, if we are expressions of the Divine, then we are, at our core, Divine. Knowing we are Divine is where we can derive comfort, guidance and strength for this human experience. In The Five Principles, author Ellen Debenport claims that “this is the point of spiritual growth … making decisions from the Higher Self, loving with the unconditional and inexhaustible energy of the Divine, contributing to the well-being of the planet.” Living from our divinity is to express fully who we really are. We do not have a soul; we are a soul, a soul with a body and a personality to use in this earthly life to learn and to grow. For more information please see

INTEGRAL SOMATICPSYCHO-SPIRITUAL PSYCHOTHERAPIST: Unresolved embodied trauma underlies many common psychological issues such as anxiety and depression. Therefore, I employ a variety of somatic methods such as EMDR, IBP & a somatic mediation, which activate the body to reveal where trauma is stored, the imagination to remember it, & the heart to express and release it. Clients are in awe of the experience activated by these methods, & grateful for the transformative results. I am covered by health insurance plans under psychological services.

Reflect the Power of Your Home with Feng Shui


eng Shui is an alternative Chinese discipline with origins dating back almost 6,000 years. Whether you realize it or not … this ancient craft is at work for each and every one of us around-the-clock. This article will introduce you to a key concept that may be used to assist you in harnessing your home’s energy and then successfully reflecting it back toward you. Our spaces and their arrangement either reflect positive or challenging energy in our lives. Thus if one has the power to change how universal energy is interpreted in one’s home and subsequently reflected in his/her life, would you use it? Have you ever wondered why you get stuck in a particular area of your life? Would you prefer to move these stagnancies in a more positive direction? If so, Feng Shui may hold the key. When applied correctly, Feng Shui in your space allows positive chi to flow optimally throughout your home uniting the mind, body, spirit -- and in turn aligning intentions. Many of the things one may seek: financial abundance, better health, and more love are just a few of the things you may attract into your life through the correct application of Feng Shui. Energies are ever-changing. A good Feng Shui practitioner will work with you to correctly navigate them; connecting you with good energy already in your space and protecting you from any disruptive energy. The aim is to expand positive sectors and diminish challenged ones. Expanding yang (positive) energy in your space is the goal. A Feng Shui practitioner can assist you in defining and developing a Feng Shui plan that will allow you to bring the current state of your home closer to the state you desire. Hint: De-cluttering is a good first step! A harmonious home and great energy can be yours to enjoy. Should you wish to book a Feng Shui consultation please visit us at www.

Why Homeopathy is So Popular & Why You Should Try It By Mokhtar Akbari, Homeopath and Naturopath Mokhtar Akbari is a co-founder of the Ottawa Gatineau Homeopathy Clinic. He is passionate about helping patients learn about holistic medicine and its benefits. This article is a short summarized version. You can find the original extended article at


omeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. More than 200 million people seek out it’s benefits on a regular basis. It’s proponents include royalty such as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, sports stars such as Usain Bolt, and movie stars like Jennifer Aniston. So what is the craze all about? Why do so many people turn to homeopathy for their health? Find out why it is so popular and why should you try it. What is homeopathy? Homeopathy is a system of natural medicine that is safe, effective and holistic. Homeopathy is its own complete system of medicine. It can be used to treat most health conditions, either on its own or in combination with other types of medicine. When used in combination with other types of medicines, including conventional medicines, it is safe and poses no risk of drugs interacting in a negative way. Homeopathy is Scientific and Organized Along WellDefined Principles Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is highly structured and organized. Here’s how it works: 1. Scientific studies are first carried out on healthy people to discover the properties of the remedies. ​2. These remedies are then selected for patients using strict guidelines and principles. 3. Very specific patterns of improvement are then expected in these patients, including improvements of the symptoms, improvements in the general health and energy of the patient, and improvements in his or her ability to withstand life stresses on the mentalemotional level. 4. After a remedy has successfully treated a person with a specific disease, this knowledge is then added back in the homeopathy textbooks about the properties of that remedy. In this way, the knowledge of remedies is being continually refined. Now let’s look at homeopathy’s 3 essential features: it is safe, effective and holistic. ​1. Homeopathy is Safe Homeopathy is a very safe treatment. The remedies that homeopaths use are natural. They come from plant, mineral or animal sources. Homeopathy does not produce any addictions and it is safe to use for everyone,


including children, pregnant women and the elderly. And homeopathy does not chemically alter the body. Rather it works by nudging the patient’s own natural defense mechanism just enough to trigger a healing response. For this reason, homeopathy does not require large amounts of medicine. Homeopaths use the least amount of medicine needed in order to trigger healing. This makes homeopathy very safe. 2. Homeopathy is Effective Homeopathy’s results speak for themselves. It has a track record of 200 hundred years with literally millions of patients receiving successful treatment. The personal accounts of these people is the strongest proof that homeopathy is effective. You can read many cases of patients we have helped on our website. Homeopathy also has the backing of an abundant number of studies covering various conditions. Of the last 5 systematic reviews done in homeopathy, 4 of them clearly showed that homeopathy has effects that are different than placebo. You can find references to these studies on the Homeopathy Research Institute website ( These studies confirm the personal experience of millions of patients. They will tell you: homeopathy is effective. 3. Homeopathy is Holistic The third essential feature of homeopathy is that it is holistic. Homeopathy is based on the fact that all the systems of the body work together in an interconnected way. They form a cohesive whole. When you are sick, it is the imbalance in this whole that need to be treated, not just the specific symptoms that can be seen in one part of your body. To identify this imbalance, the homeopath looks at pains and symptoms you have in various parts of your body. These create a recognizable pattern that reveals the overall imbalance in your system. Once the homeopath has identified it, they can then find the most suitable remedy to treat this overall imbalance and re-establish harmony and health within you. Because homeopathic treatment helps to re-balance you as a whole person, the results are truly holistic. In addition to improvements in their main complaint, patients regularly say that they feel a general sense of well-being and vitality. Their energy and sleep improves, their immunity is boosted. They get sick less often than they did before. And they also feel that they have a greater capacity to resolve the life challenges and stress that they face. This is what holistic healing looks like. In conclusion, homeopathy is so popular because of the clear benefits of the holistic treatment it provides. It is also proven to be safe and effective. This is why so many families turn to it for their healthcare needs. This is also why you and your family should consult a homeopath if you are not doing so already.

Live Your Best Life with Yoga


racticing yoga comes with many benefits for mental and physical health. Yoga offers more than just stretching or calisthenics, it incorporates breathing techniques, meditation and mindfulness, with movement to encourage relaxation, reduce stress and provide an overall improved life experience.

Decrease Stress, Anxiety and Depression People often report feeling more relaxed after even one yoga class. The physiological explanation is that yoga causes the body to make less cortisol, (the stress hormone). Production of serotonin, the neurotransmitter related to happiness and well being increases. Moving through yoga poses releases muscle tension, so the body may feel more relaxed or lighter. The emphasis on deep breathing can have a meditative effect on the body and mind, forging a connection to the present moment. Sleep Better Yoga may help you fall asleep faster, sleep longer and feel better rested in the morning. When a person starts a regular yoga practice the body will increase the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wakefulness. Many sleep disorders are closely tied to stress-related ailments (such as depression, pain and high blood pressure). Yoga can help with the symptoms of those underlying ailments to give you a better night’s sleep.

Breathe Better Most yoga classes incorporate breathing exercises (pranayama). Practicing these techniques can improve vital capacity (the measure of the maximum amount of air that can be expelled from the lungs) which translates to improved endurance, optimized performance and healthy heart and lungs. Improve Strength, Balance and Flexibility Practicing yoga can be an effective way to boost strength and endurance as well as improving flexibility. Certain yoga poses work to build strength in key postural muscles – making it easier to build balance and body awareness. Other poses work to lengthen the

muscles and connective tissue to keep the body moving with ease. Reduce Chronic Pain and Inflammation Yoga can significantly improve pain, disability and mood in people with persistent pain. Breath awareness combined with physical movements help to release muscle tension held in the body. Movement increases the flow of oxygen to the brain and muscle tissues, improving muscle flexibility and energy levels. For certain conditions, moving joints through their range of motion and stretching the muscles can decrease the intensity of pain and inflammation. Yoga also increases the release of pain-relieving endorphins.

Improve Quality of Life Considering yoga’s impact on so many other areas of physical and mental health, it is not surprising that yoga is being offered as an adjunct therapy to improve quality of life, mood and fatigue. Not only does yoga have the capacity to enhance spiritual well-being, but also taking a yoga class with others provides a sense of community and companionship. Multiple studies have confirmed the many mental and physical benefits of yoga. Incorporating it into your routine can help enhance your health, increase strength and flexibility and reduce symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety. Finding the time to practice yoga just a few times per week may be enough to make a noticeable difference when it comes to your health.

Quantum-Touch® Therapy:

Working with the Law of Attraction

Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch® Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Certified Law of Attraction Coach, Certified Facilitator: Open Space Technology, and Facilitation of Small Groups lthough I was often an unhappy child, somewhere deep inside, I always felt that we should be happy, that life should be a pleasure. So, you can imagine how I felt when I began to hear about our various lifetimes, and that we make the choice to return to live in our bodies with an intention to teach some very important lesson to our fellow planetary residents that will have a profound impact on our lives during this life time. Once I heard that, although initially I couldn’t understand what I could possibly have to teach and to share, I began to get a handle on what my purpose here was. So, when I learned Quantum-Touch Therapy, and realized that it was based upon the Law of Attraction, I was really excited about that work and how I could begin to understand how my thoughts and attitudes affected how I felt physically and emotionally. I could also understand how my early life had been affected by how I was feeling and what I was thinking.

Now, I’ve been studying the Law of Attraction at a much deeper level, through a 12- month coaching training, and continued training in developing a coaching program for my fellow Quantum-Touch Therapy Instructors, Practitioners and students. As I work on this program, and continue using the practices and processes in my own life, I’m increasingly aware of how powerful these beliefs are, and how much of an impact is possible when we realize how strongly our thoughts and feelings affect our lives at all levels. I was watching the delightful Bianca Andreescu, when she won that amazing tennis match on Sunday, with Serena Williams, against all odds. She has told us how her mom started teaching her about the Law of Attraction when she was very young and that she has seen herself playing this match over and over in her mind. Truly the Law of Attraction in action. I remembered Nadia Comaneci, a young gymnast from Romania, who won the gold medal with a perfect ‘10’, at the Olympics in Montreal in the 1976, sharing that some of her practice sessions were done in a little closet as a mental exercise, where she saw herself doing her perfect performance over and over again. We have since learned that sessions done mentally, are as effective, if not more so, than the physical practices sessions. These studies have been done here in Canada in working with high achieving athletes. So, as my life moves forward, I’m working with these concepts, both with my clients and students, and in my own life, my work is becoming actually more and more exciting. I witness how much change can happen with my clients during a hands-on healing session, distance healing work, and now coaching sessions using Skype and for groups, with ZOOM, when we spend some time focusing upon our emotional component.

The Art of Eden Energy Medicine


here does your energy come from? Food, good vibes, our genetic makeup and ancestry, creativity, awesome music. Yes Yes Yes to all the above. But what blew my mind was discovering that I could shift my own energy without outside stimulus... through simple movements such as having my energy cross over from the right side of my body to the left and vice-versa. Come on... that sounds like voodoo. Nope, it is not. Pure science. Oh may I introduce myself? My name is Helene Anne Fortin, the lady who creates portraits of families for a living (among other things). View my portrait work at: (my passion for the last 27 years of my life). But about a dozen years ago I had the privilege of meeting Donna Eden, the visionary behind Eden Energy Medicine (EEM), and my life changed... completely. How? My energies became more cohesive. I became happier. I learned tools and techniques that helped me stay healthier. I felt more grounded. I seemed to have greater control of my work and my life. Want to feel more grounded? First rub your hands together. Second put a hand about 3” above your head, palm facing down towards the crown of your head. Close your eyes. Slowly, ever so slowly, trace that hand from above your head— always 3 inches out from the body— to the centre line of your face, throat, torso.... all the way down to the top of your legs and then let it all go. Now sense your body. Do you feel more grounded, a bit more cohesive? Let me know if that works for you.

in June 2004. She has taught classes to 1,000s of students across Canada, in the Caribbean and Scotland and sees 100s of clients annually in her private clinic in Ottawa. Aileen is certified as an Open Space Technology facilitator, and a facilitator of small groups. She offers workshops in other energy work, including Grounding and the Art of Creating Sacred Space. Aileen has been offering energy healing in the Ottawa area for more than 25 years, initially with Polarity therapy and Cranio-Sacral prior to learning QuantumTouch® therapy. Aileen is now a Certified Law of Attraction Coach, since October 2018. You can reach her at 613-2282272, at 613-795-3751, and by e-mail at aileen.mckenna66@, at, or you can check out her website at, her blogsite at www. and the Quantum-Touch website at

So Eden Energy Medicine is a system of tools and techniques to empower you and your energy. They are simple to learn. And, for some (like me), a life-changer. Eden Energy Medicine draws from many traditions including: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Brain Gym, Touch for Health, Energetic kinesiology, Qigong, etc. Over time Eden Energy Medicine has grown to be a larger part of my work. I teach EEM tools to students of my Art of Seeing Workshops and Creativity for Highly Sensitive People Workshops. Participants absorb new information more readily and deeply. EEM is core work that I embed into my Creativity Mentorship programme. Within my Creativity Mentorship programme, my Eden Energy work focusses primarily helping the spirit of an individual to regain its momentum. What ignites your spirit? How do you stay connected to that spark? For each of us the pathway is unique. Yet, I believe, each one has a special gift to give to the world. I simply help you on the path to find yours. As an Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner my clients come with a myriad of needs. From confusion (where do I go from here?), to pain, to loss. Yet the more tools that are at our disposal (especially simple tools that empower), the more we can succeed in building a better life, and perhaps, even a better world. Helene Anne Fortin is a creative. Her portrait studio is located in Wakefield Quebec where she loves to capture the spirit of her clients on film. She equally loves to help empower others through her Eden Energy Work, of which she is a certified practitioner. View that work at: Or simply call: 819 459.2161.

Finding The Balance

Service To Self, Service To Others

Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, OM, Psychotherapist, Quantum Energy Therapist, Spiritual Counsellor


any of us were raised to be constant caretakers, especially if we are women. Putting others first and people pleasing to get our basic physical and emotional needs met has been a program developed in early childhood and one that has persisted in driving our emotional needs and patterns for as long as we can remember. Because it has become such a big part of our selves and so basically unknown to us, we continue on year after year ignoring our own needs and instead focusing outward on others. Having them be okay made us feel we were okay— classic co-dependence. We had no idea we had needs of our own or even that we had the right to look after our selves. What we did know is each year we became more and more unhappy, unfulfilled and tired to the point we were not sure we could continue on. Our inner being was screaming--“What about me.” The personality was saying “You are being selfish, keep focusing on others. They need you.” As we move into midlife, it becomes necessary to find the balance in life between service to others and service to self. Service to self is not selfish, rather it is soulful---it is necessary to feed the soul—the driving force that works through our higher self to guide the personality/ego to find peace and well-being. If we continue to always put other first, we are ignoring the needs of our soul, the soul that wants us to thrive, to be healthy and happy. How do we know we are out of balance? When we keep doing things for others and start to feel resentful, deprived and like a victim- all because we are not taking care of our own needs. It is an old engrained pattern, but one that can be healed. I personally healed this within myself

I was raised the only child of two alcoholics who were very bright but wildly out of control and selfdestructive. Not only did I take their patterns on, but I learned to put them first to save myself. Monitoring, helping, placating them to be sure they were okay became my survival mechanism. These caretaking, self denying patterns, carried with me throughout life until I finally had the courage to look at them and do the work to heal them. It changed my life completely and has done so for hundreds of my clients. I invite you to explore the Inner Child Work and see if it resonates for you.

Live Blood Analysis Live Blood Analysis is the process of looking at live blood sample through the microscope in order to help the patient arrive at their optimum level of health. Through looking at indicators within the blood we can determine how well the body is handling daily stressors (such as environmental toxins, diet and lifestyle, mental/emotional stressors, medical treatments and procedures etc) and what needs to be done in order to bring the body back into balance. It is a preventative tool that is an extremely useful to bring the body back to its optimum state of functioning. Nutrition Counseling Nutrition Counseling refers to the process of understanding the unique way that each person’s body functions and works at its optimum. Various measures are then implemented in order to bring about balance and health in the patient. A number of methods are used in order to bring forth a deeper sense of health and well being including diet, lifestyle, herbs, minerals, vitamins and minerals. FAQs: LIVE CELL MICROSCOPY What is it? Around the world, the blood is known as ‘the river of life.’ That is because the blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells and carries wastes away from them. By projecting a small drop of blood from the tip of a finger on to a darkfield microscope I am able to see my clients blood ecology. What can it tell me? The human body is constantly trying to achieve homeostasis, or, simply put, balance. In conjunction with a nutritional assessment, live cell microscopy can be used to help clients work towards optimal nutritional wellness by detecting possible imbalances such as: • nutritional • hormonal • oxidativestress (free radicals) • liver stress • microbial activity • under-oxygenation • immune stress • over-active or under-active digestion The live cell microscopist then works with the client to design a nutritional and lifestyle plan that supports the body as it attempts to regain optimal balance.

“What does it mean to have Holy Fire Reiki?” by Martha St. Pierre


his is a question that a Master student asked during the last course that I taught. It made me realize that some people who have Holy Fire Reiki have not yet come to grips with its implications. And that those who do not have Holy Fire Reiki may not have a sense of what it offers. Holy Fire Reiki is now in its third phase of evolution; the Holy Fire I’m writing about here is Holy Fire III. I’ve studied all three levels as they have emerged. We often hear that new levels of consciousness are opening up to us and to the planet. Holy Fire III Reiki and its very high level of consciousness is part of this process. It has taken five years for our systems to learn to accommodate the high levels of energy or consciousness now available to us with Holy Fire. The primary gift that Holy Fire offers us is direct connection to the Divine. Pre-Holy Fire Reiki connected us at the level of Soul. Holy Fire connects us at the level of Spirit. This direct connection is seen in how Holy Fire is taught and in how the energy works with a person receiving a treatment. A major aspect of how Holy Fire is taught is that the teacher “gets out of the way”; that is, the student is not affected by the energy of the teacher. In pre-Holy Fire classes, the teacher interacted physically with the

student as the Reiki energy was opened up through an Attunement; in Holy Fire, Attunements have been replaced with Placements, where Source energy comes directly to the student. The energy is of a very high vibration. (In Holy Fire, the Tibetan symbols have to be released because their energy is of a lower vibration than Holy Fire.) In treatments, because the energy is of such a high vibration, it works faster, it goes deeper, and it heals more powerfully (while maintaining its gentle nature). For those who have Holy Fire III Reiki, the rate of self-healing is speeded up, and the possibilities of spiritual, mental and emotional growth are endless. Access to new levels of consciousness are opened to help us to heal our unhealed ego, to come to know our authentic self, and to recognize our spiritual path and our purpose in this lifetime. The energy acts continuously, most of the time without our being aware of it. Then one day we realize that we have more confidence, that feelings of shame and embarrassment have melted away, that we feel loved and loveable, that fears about safety have disappeared. We know that we are cared for. (All of this happened for one student within about three weeks of having taken her Master class!) Once we surrender to the Holy Fire III energy, it brings us all the qualities we want and need to bring into this world: joy, love, compassion, patience, gratitude, optimism, enthusiasm, peace. We come to know happiness in a way we have never yet experienced it. All of this raises our vibration, the vibration of each person in our life, and raises the vibration of the planet. Holy Fire Reiki is truly a gift to us. What does it mean to have Holy Fire Reiki? It means having the most recent evolution of Reiki energy. It means participating fully in our healing and the healing of the planet. It means experiencing joy and peace and happiness in new and exciting ways. It means feeling secure in the world. And all of this comes easily because of our direct connection to Spirit. If you wish to discuss Holy Fire III, to have a treatment or to study it, please call on me!

am often asked by my clients during their personal Akashic Records Consultations, if it is possible for them to connect and understand their pets more through the Akashic Records. Well, the answer is YES! Having two shih tzu dogs myself, (Misha & Willow) and a umbrella cockatoo (Abbey), I often go into their Akashic Records, or my own to create a better relationship and understanding of their needs and also to create a better understanding of why my pets are in my life. Are you like me and feel, that your animal friend chose you and not you choosing them? How often have you heard pet owners say, how their pets have changed their lives for the better and helped them through the darkest and most difficult times in their lives? Our pets are truly here to help us and work with us … just as all animals are on the earth plane. Just like humans, each type of animal here on the earth plane has its own soul purpose on Earth, the two legged, the four legged, the wing ones, and the gilled ones. Some animals incarnate in service to humanity, while others are here to serve the planet, or are here themselves to grow spiritually through life on Earth. Many are also here on the Earth Plane to teach and to learn. If only we as humans, took the time to look deeply into our earth plane brother’s and sister’s eyes … we would know how much they truly want to spiritually connect with us, share and learn from each other. I invite you to join me on this very special spiritual bonding experience with your fur babies within the Akashic Records. Feel free to contact me at (613) 6125028 to schedule your in person, skype or phone Akashic Records Consultations from the Misiwe Ni Relations Healing Lodge in Manotick. Also, I invite you to visit my web site at, where you will find the dates I am available for Akashic Records Consultants at the following locations: Singing Pebble Books (Ottawa); Green Spirit (Manotick, Ontario

Reprogramming the Fear of Failure by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapy and Ascension Healing


ne of the most profound reasons why people think they will fail is because they hold a memory of failing long ago, and their consciousness is trapped in a program that dictates they will fail again. It’s true, that if in childhood, we believed that we fell short of some expectation, we created a subconscious negative ego story: thoughts and feelings of disappointment, powerlessness or shame that we didn’t “succeed”. Continued expectations of ourselves can press upon us to succeed but conflict with the fear of failing. It’s also true that our fears of failing were seeded long ago, when alien invasions, holocausts, and multiple galactic wars created extreme trauma in our collective consciousness. With the seeds planted through these traumatic events, the controlling forces now need only to trigger the traumas with repetitive fear-generating mind control and manipulations, to maintain our inner instability, and so that we still believe their lies.


However, the human brain is flexible and reprogrammable. We can remember the truth of our consciousness memories to choose to override the pain of the past. We can challenge our narrow thoughts with self-inquiry. We can affirm and focus on what we want by using our creative imagination to visualize and feel a higher expression of ourselves. With consistent repetition, we lay down new neural pathways of supportive, positive messaging. Yet, healing also absolutely requires a recognition and acceptance that nothing is more powerful than our connection to Source. In the present, turning toward God, is where we’ll find all possibilities that exist beyond the fearful outcomes we assume. When you fear failure, ask yourself, “Right now, if I choose fear, what direction will I continue to move in?” “Right now, if I choose to believe in myself and my power as a Divine human, where will that take me?” Then take just one step. You won’t know what’s possible until you do.

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

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition:

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

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