A Dog’s Life Yoga philosophy tells us that the primary cause of suffering is our identification with the mind and/or the body. There’s evidence of that on every flyer, every other television commercial, every anti-aging campaign, and filling rows upon rows of dietary and weight-loss quick fixes .... this utter inability to see the beauty of wisdom that can evolve with our age. Why do we do that?! Create a context that determines wrinkles are to be hidden at all cost? Two things we can absolutely count on with utter confidence and security: 1) We will age 2) We will die. And our culture has determined that both of these are taboo topics of conversation, best kept swept under the carpet and locked behind closed doors. Perhaps if we all started doing the inner work, started connecting with our true state of being, our unchanging essence, we would stop chasing an illusion and find true inner peace. Consider . . . to what part of your identity are you most attached? In other words, what insult would most ‘hit home’ for you? A comment about your looks, your weight? An affront against your intelligence, your skills as a mother, father, caregiver? What is it that defines you, for therein lies the ego.  Can you sit with a vision of you, stripped naked of these names and traits and identities and realize that right here, right now, exactly the way that things are, I am perfect in every way?

My goal is to live like a dog. They harbour no resentments, no fears, no uncertainties. They don’t obsess for days over insurance premiums or wills or retirement packages, fooling themselves into thinking they can control the future. Mansion or dog house, they’re happy. A collar from Burberry or Walmart doesn’t define them, fat owner or thin, they aren’t embarrassed. Sure, burgers over kibble is a natural preference, but they happily accept what comes their way. In fact, on close analysis, it seems the spiritual guru I have long sought has been here the whole time. Eryn Kirkwood, MA, is the owner and director of BarrhavenYoga (www.BarrhavenYoga.com).

What To Do With Our Feelings? By Marlene and Bob Neufeld

W

e cannot live in this world without having feelings. Invariably, something happens which takes us out of a sense of well-being. The big question is what to do with our feelings.

Make them wrong, try not to feel them Many of us have been raised that certain feelings were wrong and we shouldn’t feel them. In fact, we call some feelings “negative”. Who among us has not heard “don’t be afraid (or sad… or angry)”? Some of us (ourselves included) have even said that to our loved ones or children or friends. However, telling someone not to feel an emotion is like telling someone not to feel hungry or tired. In fact, it back-fires. WHAT WE RESIST, PERSISTS! This quote is attributed to Carl Jung, the Swiss Psychiatrist. However, it has become a truism. When we are resisting something, we are actually giving it more energy. Our pushing against it causes us to focus on it. Try not thinking about something. Just the act of trying not to think about it, makes us think about it. Suppression never works. Emotions are energy, and if we suppress energy, it will condense. And sooner or later that energy will explode. We can’t get rid of it. It is there .

Get caught in the story of them, believe they are justified Our minds latch onto something as the cause of the feeling.... the boyfriend, the wife, the job, or even the weather. But, who knows what the real reason is? Our minds are made to make sense of our emotions. However, they are not always accurate. We try to think our way out of our feelings by working out what’s gone wrong. We ask ourselves questions: “Why do I always react this way?” “Why can’t I handle things better?” or “Why does s/he always react this way?” “Why can’t s/he handle things better?” We go round and round the same hamster wheel. This does exactly the opposite of resolving problems: our ability to solve problems actually deteriorates markedly. When we think we know the cause of the problem, we attack ourselves or someone else. We point out our own or someone else’s faults with blame and criticism, often convincing ourselves that it is justifiable. We may add the words “I feel…” to our thoughts believing that this makes them more real or true. In our office, we have frequently had people defend their stories with a fervent “But, that’s what I feel!” Sometimes, we are afraid that what is going on says that we are bad people. Then we need to defend against that, because no-one really wants to admit that they are a bad person.

Act them out Another thing we do is lash out. We have heard that is not good to suppress our feelings, and that it is important to express them. We may be angry and we express it in a way that is hurtful or we may be afraid and we act out the fight response (fight or flight) of fear.. We do a variety of behaviours ranging from physical abuse to using sarcasm, insulting, name calling, raising our voices, intimidating, pressuring, threatening, lying, accusing, comparing, and basically not taking responsibility for our behaviour

Honour them, feel them and make friends with them So what can we do? “What we embrace, dissolves” (also attributed to Carl Jung). Here are some steps to make friends with feelings. 1. Let go of “because…” (we don’t really know why we are feeling a certain way, we just think we do). 2. Drop the story and focus our attention on the physical sensations of our feelings. Sooner or later our feelings will inevitably fade on their own because we are no longer feeding them with our thoughts. In the process, we shift from feeling powerless in their presence to having viable ways to be in relationship to them or anything else that arises Marlene & Bob Neufeld practice body-centered Coaching and Psychotherapy. They are a couple who help couples learn life-changing skills and create closer, more loving relationships with one another. For more information call 613-594-9248 or see www.marleneandbob.com

ThetaHealingTM for Accepting Yourself and Others

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR) Energy Psychotherapist, ThetaHealing Facilitator, Sacred Sound Channel ThetaHealingTM quickly, gently and easily uncovers the root cause of your concerns and simultaneously releases energy from current life experiences, past generations, past lives and soul, to create deep and lasting change! For previous articles explaining Theta/DNA Healing, case studies, and an overview of all my services, visit www.MelindaUrban.com We all look at the world through the personal lens of our own experience. Some people see themselves and others as compassionate and well-meaning, whereas others view and act with judgment, anger or fear. The perception we generally uphold has everything to do with how we feel about ourselves, and ourselves in relation to others. Ask yourself, “From which paradigm do I operate my life?”: • I’m not O.K., you’re O.K. • I’m O.K., you’re not O.K. • I’m not O.K., you’re not O.K. • I’m O.K., you’re O.K. The most common model I see in my practice is “I’m not O.K., you’re O.K.”. This is a sense of inferiority created through wounds of shame, abandonment and rejection that have been passed from one generation to another. For example, one client, whom we’ll call Marcus, was raised by a father who was rigid in his views of right and wrong, and if Marcus behaved in any manner that was different from his father’s he was deemed inadequate. No matter what Marcus did, he was criticized and could not meet his father’s expectations. Desperate to receive Dad’s acceptance, Marcus continued to diminish himself and make himself wrong in order that Dad could be right. Consequently, with this subconscious programming, he spent his energy comparing himself to others and feeling small, automatically assuming he was at fault, and looking to others for validation rather than trusting himself, especially with male authority figures. With energy psychotherapy and ThetaHealing we were able to show Marcus that he had been waiting all his life for Dad to accept him and tell him that he was O.K. The work was to shift the various layers of beliefs imbedded in this core view of himself and his father,



and instill the energies of ‘being O.K.’, which he had never known. As Marcus came to accept himself, he no longer defaulted into feelings of inferiority and life felt lighter. The polarity of inferiority is superiority: “I’m O.K., you’re not O.K.” This is the paradigm that can rear up when we operate from blame and refuse to look inward and be self-responsible. It can shape the entire life of the survivor child who has suffered severe abuse and learns to remain tough; hate sustains him or her. It is important to note that if we hold a self-view of inferiority we also hold superiority in our shadow. Subconsciously, Marcus also wanted to be superior so he could, just once, be right. However, given his upbringing and longing for acceptance by Dad, he felt that if he gave himself permission to stand up for himself he would change the energetic imbalance in his relationship, and this was unthinkable. He also feared that if he finally allowed himself to assert his power he would abuse it. This created much inner conflict. So at times when Marcus was immensely frustrated with his sense of inferiority and powerlessness, he would explode in anger, blame, and act superior, but then become relentlessly hard on himself. Once he started to accept himself, he no longer needed to desire superiority nor fear it; he could simply stand in his authentic power. Please remember than any distortions we carry that have us believing that we or others are not O.K. in anyway, are inorganic thoughtforms that separate us from the truth of who we are. We are all O.K. We are all more than O.K.; we are God essence.

Abandonment Issues and Relationships: Recovery is Steps Away

By Anita Utas, B.A, B.Ed, Personal Relationship Coach Why do some of us go through relationship after relationship, and come to wonder, “Is there something wrong with me?� or, “Why do I keep choosing the wrong person? Will I end up alone?� Most of our relationship difficulties have to do with our childhood experiences. One of the most prevalent issues, stemming from childhood, is abandonment. Abandonment issues can be caused by a parent leaving the family, divorce, the death of a parent, or one or both parents failing to give enough nurturing, encouragement, and time to their children. Abandonment stirs up feelings of not being worthy, not belonging, not being in control of our lives. It generates feelings of insecurity and self-doubt when we try to love someone or let go of a relationship that is not healthy. We carry these scars all of our lives, and they affect how we behave in our adult relationships. People who have abandonment issues create patterns that are repeated, relationship after relationship. Many women are drawn to men who are like their fathers, and if their fathers emotionally or physically ‘abandoned’ them when they were young, the men they are attracted to will most likely be emotionally unavailable. Freud called this “repetition compulsion� which means that in order to feel loved, some of us subconsciously seek to repeat the feelings of the first ‘love’ we experienced, the love of our parents. If we were neglected or abandoned through divorce, for example, we need to relive the feelings of abandonment in our adult relationships. We need to feel this anxiety to feel that we are being loved. If we meet someone who does not fit this pattern, we are not attracted. Pia Mellody, an internationally recognized authority on codependence and love addiction, explains this “tango-dance� of interactions between people with abandonment issues and the unresponsive partners to whom they are repeatedly and painfully drawn. I acquired my most useful training several years ago while going through my own personal abandonment. Trying to deal with the intense despair, I tried many self-help books, workshops and counseling. But I found nothing that spoke to the pain I was feeling, so I decided to spend time researching relationships and abandonment. I needed to understand what was causing me to repeat certain relationship patterns that always ended in loss and disappointment. I began to realize that the death of my father when I was thirteen was the single most cataclysmic event in my life, and that this was where I had to start. After speaking with many other men and women who had experienced different forms of abandonment in their childhood and who, as adults, had not been able to maintain a healthy

relationship, I was even more motivated to find methods and approaches that would lead to positive change. I wanted to be able to identify and understand the psychology of what was happening, and then find a way to stop selfdefeating patterns. It had to be possible to reconfigure how we perceive ourselves, and in turn, become emotionally independent, thus changing our relationships with others. I also learned that I had to direct my energy towards a solution, and not dwell on past hurts and problems. Through personal experience, fieldwork, and years of research, I developed an effective step-by-step process that helps people face their reality, stop their relationship patterns, and create healthy, lasting connections. It takes dedication and a willingness to do the work, but recovery and change is definitely possible.

Adrenal Fatigue and Acupuncture By Steve Ryu, L.Ac.

O

ut of all the patients I have treated, I would say that about that at least 50% of them suffer from a condition called adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue occurs when people are stressed out at work or home. During periods of excessive stress, our adrenal glands become overworked and produce excess levels of cortisol in response to the body’s fight or flight response. This prevents the adrenal glands from producing other hormones we need. Adrenal fatigue or adrenal weakness fundamentally means that you have lost the ability to rest and rejuvenate. It is as if your nervous system is always “on” and you have lost the ability to stop the incessant mental chatter, anxiety, worry, and stress. Adrenal glands are glands within the endocrine system that reside on top of each of your kidneys. The endocrine system is in charge of making hormones and secreting them directly into your blood. The ovaries, testes, thyroid and pituitary are also glands of the endocrine system. The medulla (core) of the adrenals produce epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine, which are responsible for the “fight or flight” response. The cortex is the area surrounding the core and is responsible for fluid and electrolyte balance in the body using corticosteroids. These corticosteroids are responsible for the proper metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates and are anti-inflammatory in nature. In today’s modern society we push the adrenals constantly with high-pressured jobs and fast paced lifestyles, it’s easy to see how you can easily tax these precious organs and end up feeling overwhelmed and tired all the time. The main symptoms of adrenal weakness include: fatigue, irritability, restless sleep, low back pain, anxiety, depression, nervousness, feeling wiped out upon waking, many female hormonal problems, food cravings and various addictions, weight gain, sluggish metabolism, and so on. People suffering from adrenal fatigue also like to take afternoon naps to “recharge their batteries.” They always seem to lack the energy they need to perform the daily tasks of living. And they frequently crave foods high in carbohydrates, sugar and caffeine. Another symptom of adrenal fatigue is that sufferers just can’t seem to get enough sleep. For some reason, adrenal fatigue typically occurs more often in women than men. Some studies show that adrenal fatigue may even be linked to fibromyalgia and hypothyroidism. The real question is, what is the cause of this pattern and, more importantly, what is the cure? In my experience most people have adrenal weakness because they are using excessive amounts of Will Power to get through life. It is like they are constantly swimming upstream, fighting against life. They work too hard, rest too little, and have a “to do” list a mile long. These are some of the outward causes. The real cause is more of an inner dynamic. In this day and age, many people are disconnected

from their true purpose for being alive. Because of this, they don’t know themselves on a deeply intimate level, which causes them to make decisions that lead to distress and distraction. Generally speaking, adrenal weakness is as much of a spiritual issue as it is a mental one. If the root cause of purposelessness isn’t addressed, then the person can take all the supplements in the world or get acupuncture 3 times a week and it will only have a palliative effect. This is why lifestyle counselling, in addition to other therapies, is so important. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are excellent tools to boost the adrenals and restore proper function giving you more energy by reinforcing the Kidney energetic system and vital Qi (Chi). Restoring your adrenal health utilizing acupuncture and herbs is not a “quick fix” as it can take many months. However, those suffering with adrenal exhaustion can tell you, there are no fast ways to counteract adrenal exhaustion once you have drained your core Essence. According to my experience, the patients who make the most progress are the ones who are willing to do the work. They are compliant and they are motivated to make the lifestyle changes necessary to live in balance and awareness.

Soulful Solutions with Jennifer Clark Intuitive counsellor Jennifer Clark offers her en-light-ening and inspiring soulful solutions to life’s challenges. Q: I have two lovely children who seem to be “different”. I’m scared for them as they seem to be struggling with regular life. I’m trying to best prepare them for the return to school but am nervous for them. Can you help? Concerned Mom in Barrhaven. A: You’re not the only Mom getting kids ready for the return to school and anxious about their transition back. First, really listen to your child. I know it’s hard but most parents are so busy with the daily survival activities of life that they miss the cues kids give them. Rest assured, you’ve got two highly attuned sensitive kids who have come to planet Earth to help facilitate the great system changes that will be soon upon us 2012+. Not to worry, they are perfectly suited to their purposes; it’s just that the rest of the 3D world hasn’t yet caught up with them yet! I suggest first reading Indigo Children by Jan Tober & Lee Carroll, The Care & Feeding of Indigo Children and The Crystal Children by Doreen Virtue. Another great resource is my friend Julie’s website www. highlysensitivekid.com. Also, even

though this might not be the most convenient thing, create a new ritual where each child takes a bath (with ¼ cup of Epsom salt) or at least has a shower before bed. This helps release the emotional junk they’ve collected during the day. Keep a fist size piece of rose quartz by each bed will also help ensure sweet dreams. Because you are not the only concerned parent asking these questions, I will be co-hosting a workshop with Dr. Jada Macleod N.D. on Sunday, September 25th from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at the James Street Wellness Centre helping parents like you better support their highly sensitive child. Join us! Jennifer Clark was Ottawa’s first Angel Therapy® Practitioner and Professional Spiritual Teacher certified by Doreen Virtue.

more importantly it is the learning of who one really is. The caliber of Teacher Trainers from all over the world was unsurpassed. The teachings were delivered each month by teachers who had studied directly under Yogi Bhajan and the light of his wisdom shone through each one of them. And having 8 months to process these teachings was so ideal, allowing me to fully and gracefully integrate the teachings into my busy daily life ... still having the time and energy needed for my personal, family and work obligations. Whatever path we have all have chosen, our strong community that was built over that period of time at PranaShanti, continues to grow. Since I graduated I have been teaching several classes every week. Often now I too sense someone outside the door when we chant Mantra or I play the Gong…. and I want to invite them in, understanding the potency and flow of energy that we create in each and every class. I am not surprised that it leaks out under the door and into the souls of those listening… Sat Naam Victoria Lynes/Atmabir Kaur Victoria Lynes/Atmabir Kaur is the Programs Manager at the PranaShanti Yoga Centre, 52 Armstrong Street, Ottawa, where she also teaches several Kundalini Yoga classes a week. Kundalini Level One Teacher Training at PranaShanti begins October, 2011 and runs until June 2012, culminating in a 3 day retreat. Drop in Open House: September 11th 11.30am – 12.30pm. www.pranashanti. com. 613.761.9642. Open the door to you....

ow do we choose to change our lives?  What part of us makes that choice that leads us closer to the center of our own heart?  Who do we become, when we become the best version of ourselves? My journey through the Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Program …. As I glided past the closed door on my way from a Hot Yoga class to change out of my sweat drenched clothes, I was stopped short by the strange yet somehow familiar sounds that were emanating from inside. I was frozen to the spot. The pull to open the door was so strong that the phrase “I’m possessed!” came to mind, a line from some old 80’s horror flick. The sounds were so beautiful, so charged with powerful, uplifting energy. And I had the strongest sensation that I had heard them before. “What kind of yoga class is this?” I wondered, continuing to listen intently. I left that day very curious about what I had experienced. The strong sense of being pulled into that room stayed with me. Something shifted in my yoga practice after that day. I began to feel an emptiness in it.... It was quite some time until I had the courage to venture into a Kundalini Yoga Class. My first experience of these powerful teachings was intense. Physically demanding, mentally challenging and spiritually awakening. I loved everything about class. The energising and calming breathing techniques, the challenging asana practice. The crazy meditations that had my arms up in the air chanting foreign words I had no idea the meaning of! ... (yet seeming strangely familiar), and the astonishing stillness that was achievable after that. The lightness and expansiveness gained from the wearing of white... One year after that very first experience, standing outside that door, I launched myself wholeheartedly into the Original Body Course Kundalini Teacher Training Program at the PranaShanti Yoga Centre. I knew I was up against a rigorous 9 months Human & StoneBeings, working co-creatively in energy and bodywork of intense yoga and personal transformation. But I was ready … The first few months were blissful as I leapt passionately and diligently into study and practice. I could not get enough.... Then suddenly, about 4 months in, in the dead of winter, I lost my groove. I began to question it all. The association with the Sikh Religion was something I couldn’t get past. Where and how did I fit in to all this? Where does the “religion” stop and the yoga start? And the white … the head coverings, the questions from friends and family about it all. I doubted my strength to get through, and I was experiencing parts of myself that, quite frankly ... Original Body is the base course of the LaStone®Therapy Program I did not like. I did not want to wallow in all the emotional (www.lastonetherapy.com). You will learn to use the thermal dynamics of heated and chilled stones, coupled with Swedish massage strokes muck that this was bringing to the surface. But there was and energy balancing techniques to support your clients in physical and no turning back now. I brought every book I could find emotional self-healing. And therapists: the StoneBeings assist you too! and devoured it all. Each time I questioned myself or the Course Dates: Oct. 13th – 16th, 2011 teachings, something pulled me back in.

In celebration Intuitive Healing sessions are $45.00 for all the month of September .This applies to new clients as well as existing customers . Each session is an hour long , is very relaxing, and includes an intuitive reading . The focus of the reading is, “What does this person most need in order to heal ? ” Each client lies down on a healing table fully clothed , a light blanket is placed over their body, and soft music plays in the background. I will then place my hands above your body but not touching . You may or may not feel energy going through your body ,repairing, healing, and removing blockages. As I move around your body any angels ,ascended masters, animal guides ,people whom are passed on , or spirit guides & teachers will come through and give any information that is needed . After the healing is finished we will then discuss anything that occurred during the healing ,any info. I picked up on, and anything the client experienced. Ideally the best way to approach an intuitive healing session is for the client not to give me any information at all about their condition or what is going on in their life .Absolutely no conversation needs to take place before hand as intuitive information gives a more in depth and accurate description of what is occurring. Healing work can be done on physical conditions as well as psychological , emotional issues, past life and deep buried

How Does It Get Any Better Than This?

I have been running the “Bars” on clients & friends for nine months & the feedback I am hearing is both rewarding & exciting. Some of the comments are, “I have had my Bars run by Carol a couple of times a few months ago and I felt an immediate calming effect When the hour long session is over I felt like I had a total physical and emotional body massage. I would recommend anyone to explore this wonderful and powerful energy outlet.” – JL “Every time I have my Bars run I feel like any stress that I have been carrying in my body is removed & I have a sense of peace & calm that lasts for weeks. When I start to get cranky my daughter suggests it is time for a visit to Carol to put me in a good mood again” – AS “I am new to the whole experience of Bars. For the first few times it was a wonderful relaxing experience without anything remarkable showing up. To preface this a bit I would like to explain that I have been feeling some pain in my right shoulder that radiates to my elbow and to my wrist at times. It has been a nagging pain that has been around for at least 6 weeks and has kept me awake at night. With this last Bars experience, I noticed a tremendous reduction of pain in general and a deep sense of relaxation. The pain has diminished substantially and I slept very soundly that night.? I really appreciate the shift that running The Bars has allowed. Something so simple, yet so profound.” – CR What are “The Bars”? The Bars are a series of 32 points on the head, which when lightly touched release old energies stuck in the brain and the body, allowing for tremendous and easy change. What does a Bars session do? The Bars takes all the considerations, thoughts, feelings, emotions, decisions, judgments, and beliefs from any lifetime, that are electrically stored in the brain and releases them. This release occurs when the bars are touched; it allows that stored junk to be released. Similar to when the lights go out in your house and you flip the circuit breaker or trip switch so the lights come on: having your bars done

Deep Soul Singing

Song is at the heart and soul of who we are. Since the beginning of time, music and sound are inextricably linked to our lives. From the Om, Word, or Logos we were created, and with our first cry our voice is ongs, singing, humming, human voice stretching, waking strong --- in songs of childhood, songs of integrity, songs up, yawning, opening, relaxing. From the joyfully of love, songs of release; songs of the spirit and songs melodic poly-rhythms of Africa; to the call and response from our ancestors. Whether emanating from enchanting songs of sailors as they work together, to monks’ unison African drumbeats that communicate from village to village, twists and turns of melodic prayer in Gregorian chant: children’s songs of play or the sacred songs of ritual, group singing is toning together, experiencing harmony, through the generations we have been called together into transcending everyday life and waltzing with the angels community to sing and share in the life of the soul. within. Sing into the center of your being. Relax with the What are the Songs of Your Journey, the Rhythms of knowledge that you are safe and supported and on a journey Your Life? into your deep heart and soul. Let’s sing together and joyfully and celebrate our lives. Beginning the last week of September for 6 weeks, we will gather to open and warm up our voices, and explore the tunes and tones that have rocked us, serenaded us, motivated us, expressed our life journeys. Come! Bring your songs, stories, a recording, instruments if you have them. No musical experience is required. We are Alive!

Hang On, Be Strong, We’re Getting There Sherry Harris, MSW, RSW, CHt, LM

e live in rapidly fluctuating times, where what used to be considered normal can no longer be relied upon as standard operating fare. All the rules seem to be changing and nothing that makes any sense is coming forward to replace them. That is because the old systems that are no longer serving unity consciousness are dissembling, coming apart. Like the Phoenix rising out of the ashes, when all the old has dissolved, and we won’t be there for quite a while yet, at that point we will have the free will to build new systems that support our unified, loving consciousness. Balance, respect and harmony will replace the selfishness, unkindness and outright cruelty that exists in so many places in our world and within so much of humanity at one time or another.

Psychotherapist Insurance Receipts Available harris.sherry@gmail.com 613-236-8852 In unity we will recognize the divinity within all consciousness and treat all life forms with love, respect and compassion. But because we are still in the breaking down of the old, not serving the light ways, the roller coaster of fluctuating energies is shaking everyone up. The only way to escape this would be to meditate in every waking moment. Even then the mat might shake or curl up or do something totally unexpected. Having a good sense of humour sure helps when things just don’t work the way they we expect them to. My phone rings when it shouldn’t and doesn’t when it should. Sometimes just to keep me on my toes, it rings when it should and actually takes a message like it used to. I’ve gotten to the point where if it doesn’t ring for an hour or two, I check for messages from the calls, I know I have missed. And the computer, well that is another whole story. So why is this a time to hang on and be strong? What I mean by being strong is being in touch with your spirituality, that part of you that is grander than (and includes) your mental, emotional and physical bodies. When I stay connected to my Spirit Self, which is whole, complete and perfect, it makes is easier to roll with the punches in this somewhat crazy and highly unpredictable world. When I remember who I am, Spirit, God Consciousness expressing in the physical it makes it easier to stay detached from the

Couple’s Coach Insurance Receipts Available harris.sherry@gmail.com 613-236-8852 third dimensional stuff of the body, aches and pains for example, and the mental and emotional roller coaster that seems to be affecting sleep and moods in everyone to some degree. It is so easy to get caught up in the frustration and sensation of the moment and forget our grander presence, that part of us who remembers being One with Source, that remembers that we chose to come in to play ‘the forgetting so we could remember game’. Why did we do this? Whatever possessed us to leave our Blissful Loving Home to venture out into forgetfulness where we would end up feeling alone and unloved; lonely and desperate to reconnect to God, to the Love we are. That connection is hidden in every cell of our being and is called Holy Spirit, God’s pipeline to us. As we tune in to ourselves this connection with God becomes crystal clear and we remember who we are. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are loved beyond measure, and that guidance and support is ever present. We need only ask and God’s support is there in ways recognizable or not. We must first ask because this is the planet of free will and Source will not intervene without our asking. The good news is that we have a game plan, a soul contract that we set up before coming in, but the plan does not always unfold as anticipated. We often need wisdom, divine guidance and loving support to stay on track or find the courage to rise to the next challenge. Despite our doubts, it is all perfect and is unfolding on track. We chose to incarnate to learn and grow spiritually, so we set up the template, forgot all about the preconceived plan and arrived in physicality clueless as to how to proceed. Divine helpers are working with us at all times, but only with our permission and in accordance with our Soul Plan. And the truth about being lonely; we couldn’t be alone if we tried. We have in any given moment so many spirit guides and helpers present with us it is a miracle we aren’t tripping over them. Maybe we are, but hopefully they are far more agile than the humans they mentor and love. Sherry Harris is a psychotherapist, spiritual counsellor, coach and teacher.

The Carole Baker Story: Saved by Hypnotherapy

Eventually Carole was unable to leave her house without a compete check of her front door and walk for the presence of snakes. Even indoors she was on high alert, losing more interest in her daily activities. She loved to bake for her Printed with permission. Grace Joubarne, CCHt is an husband, but now that joy seemed extinguished. She came Ottawa/Belleville based Clinical Hypnotherapist with to rely entirely upon her wonderful and supportive husband proven qualifications and successes. Carole is one of those Don to handle the shopping, because being touched was a successes‌ significant stressor. By the time she saw Grace Joubarne, a Clinical t some time in her childhood, Carole Baker, now Hypnotherapist with offices in Ottawa and Belleville, in resident of the Ottawa area, started to associate snakes the spring of 2010, Carole had been diagnosed with PTSD, with the feelings of helplessness, intense fear and anxiety. Dissociative Identity Disorder, Panic Disorder ulcers, Those feelings grew exponentially until by 1995 Carole arthritis, chronic pain, snake phobia and dissociation and was hospitalized for depression and at that time her fear of had been under psychiatric care for some 15 years. snakes escalated to the point where she was unable to help Hypnotherapy is very much the ultimate self-healing tool. on her farm. Slowly over the years other issues surfaced, An April 2010 article in a local natural magazine caught her including sleep apnea, persistently high stress levels, eye. Her intuition and magnificent drive to survive kicked anxiety, fear of being touched, inability to tolerate or engage in. On April 26, 2010, full of the necessary desire and in hugging/embracing.

word ‘snake’, the session work made it immediately possible for her to walk to the hypnotherapist’s garden, to walk through lawn grass and to laugh when she was told a snake was present just a few feet away. It was over…the fear of snakes that controlled practically every aspect of her life was dissolved in one hypnotherapy session. Carole reported later “ I just put a gluten-free cake in the oven!! I hadn’t baked in literally months.” She went on to report increased energy levels and on May 14th, 2010 proudly announced that she went out on her back lawn with sandals to hang up her laundry…something she had not been able to do in years. When she and her husband walked their entire property in Carp, Ontario not a single negative feeling appeared the entire time. The second session was equally rewarding for Carole. She was able to dissolve the rest of the persistent negative emotional issues that dogged her life. She now enjoys hugging and being touched. Shopping is a fun activity no matter how busy the stores. Difficulties with sleep apnea and headaches have improved greatly. Carole’s psychiatrist helped her wean her off her medications within a couple of months. She now qualifies as one of hypnotherapy’s most dedicated supporters as she tells friends, colleagues and the world about hypnotherapy and how it freed her. Many of her friends are also now freed

from medication and illness roulettes, fully in control of their lives. Carole firmly believes this is one answer to our overwhelmed medical care system costs…a dignified, selfhealing modality, free of drugs and years of talk-therapy. She speaks on the subject often, educating people on the importance of self-determination and taking responsibility for one’s health…providing hope to many who had previously been led to believe their quality of life could never improve. Carole also cautions people that a hypnotist is not necessarily a hypnotherapist and it is vitally important to ensure that the practitioner you are considering is fully trained in medical hypnotism and not just claiming they are. The competency of the hypnotherapist is as important as the willingness of the client. This enormously talented woman and educator is now on a mission to help hypnotherapy become mainstream. Her self-healing continues to inspire all who meet her.

Invitation to a Sonic Adventure with David Hickey of Crystal Journey Have you ever heard quartz crystal bowls and gongs performed LIVE? It is an amazing experience I will try to share with you. I attended my first concert by musician David Hickey in Nov 2008 and I’ve been hooked ever since. During the performance, the different frequencies offered by the crystal bowls and gongs touched me deeply, layer by layer, right to the depth of my core. It helped me leave my busy life behind and slip into a peaceful and unique reality. I felt in harmony with Mother Trance Channeling Earth, all her inhabitants and the Universe. My physical with Internationally Known body totally relaxed, my mind became quiet and my spirit was in bliss while I was riding the waves of sonic enchantment. Past Connections, Future Projections with Mikaal I had never in my life experienced this before. Now I Friday, September 16 • 7:30pm take every opportunity I can to experience crystal bowls and gongs live, and to be wrapped in another blanket of blissful Best Western Macies Hotel, 1274 Carling sonic vibrations. $22 per person - All Welcome - CD Optional Ottawa is in for a special treat this Sept. as David Hickey Sat. & Sun. Personal Readings By Appointment is returning with another amazing concert on his ever Call/fax (613) 477-2200 evolving sound journey! www.rikthurston.com I invite you all to share this experience with me and to have your own sonic adventure.

Infinite Change

Would you like to manage your emotions and live a happier life? Are you trying to lose weight? Do you procrastinate so much that it’s affecting your life and your health? Linda Graham of Infinite Change provides NLP, Time Line Therapy and Hypnosis for her clients assisting them to manage their emotions incurred by stress, anxiety, anger, worry and fear etc. This doesn’t mean you’ll never experience these emotions ever again, but it will help you to identify the root cause and manage your emotions in a more positive way. If you are trying to stop procrastinating, Linda has authored a book called Procrastinating? Which will be available in the early Fall of 2011. She uses the methods mentioned above to help those that do chronically procrastinate, to Stop. It also explains why we procrastinate and how it affects our emotional and physical well being.. Studies show that, in most cases, negative emotions and behaviours are simply learned and can be unlearned and replaced with more positive habits. We offer positive emotional change coaching so you can live a better life. The first initial 20 minute consultation is completely free to assess your needs and we will then develop a personalized coaching program specifically for you.

To contact us please call 613-521-5675 or email at Linda@infinitechange.com

Inner Peace by Darlene Plouffe

I

believe that the people who push our buttons the most are really our guardian angels in disguise. Every person that comes into our life, no matter how briefly, does so to either teach us something about others or to teach us something about ourselves. And when we’re really lucky… a little of both. I have a family member whom I love dearly, but recently felt a great deal of friction with. I found myself feeling intolerant of his intolerance and although the irony was not lost on me, I was still holding on to it the next day. That afternoon I took my son to see Kung Fu Panda 2. Within the first few minutes we see Po seeking out Master Shifu (voiced by Dustin Hoffman), who tells him that every master must find his path to inner peace. “The day you were chosen as Dragon Warrior,” he tells Po, “was the worst day of my life. But once I realized the problem was not you, but within me… I found inner peace, and was able to harness the flow of the Universe.” Sitting in the movie theatre, I smile. The Universe always has a way of sending me the messages I need to hear most, even in an animated movie. I feel ready to harness the flow of the Universe, and I go home feeling enlightened. Until about 4am. You see, I like to sleep with my windows open. My neighbours like to smoke outside and talk at all hours of the night. It’s not even that they’re overly noisy about it… most of the time… but one of them has a very deep voice that seems to resonate no matter how quietly he’s trying to talk. It floats right up on the wings of his cigarette smoke and wafts into my bedroom window. For a split second it occurs to me that his voice in fact might actually sound quite soothing.. if it wasn’t 4am. My alarm is set for 5. Don’t they know how crucial that last hour of sleep is?? When do these people ever sleep anyways? In my moment of weakness I fantasize about blasting Kirtan devotional chant music at 10:00 in the morning. I’m such a rebel. “Don’t they know I just want to live in peace?” screams the voice in my head. In my frustrated exhaustion I imagine living in total serenity and find myself wishing they would just move. And then I stop. I hear Dustin Hoffman’s voice in my head and I laugh to myself. Because I realize that if I didn’t have the neighbours I have, the Universe -in its infinite wisdom- would give me a colicky baby or a dog that barks incessantly instead. It is not in our outer surroundings that we find peace. It’s easy to be spiritual when you’re alone in a cabin

September 2011

in the middle of the woods. True inner peace comes from complete acceptance of whatever it is we are experiencing.. with no labels, and no judgement. To maintain it regularly is a challenge. Luckily for me, the Universe is giving me lots of practice. A week later I awaken suddenly to the sound of talking and laughter outside. I look at the time. It’s 3:17am. There’s a beautiful breeze out.. but I close my window, turn on my fan, and go back to sleep. For tonight at least, I have found inner peace. Darlene Plouffe is a Reiki Master, Numerologist, Writer and Artisan. She brings clarity, compassion, and gratitude to her readings and energy work, helping her clients achieve more balance in their lives and a better understanding of their spiritual path in order to create more peace and harmony within. Her workshop, “Connecting Your Body, Connecting Your Soul”, is an empowering look at how our perception creates our own reality, and how we can begin to change it for the better.

Bradfield’s CD Release Celebration in Ottawa ~ Music for your Soul!

B

radfield touches the spectrum of human emotion and spiritual aspirations, he soothes, inspires and uplifts all in one breath, bathing us in a rich, authentic tapestry that reminds us who we are, of our own unique potential. In concert, the artist is an open heart, radiating Love with gentle intensity and a powerful yet humble presence. He draws inspiration from everything that makes a heartfelt impression on his soul. Writing in a variety of musical genres from symphonic composition to modern day popular music and perhaps best known as the creator and producer of spiritual songstress Anael. Bradfield’s melodic, lyrical compositions have been attributed by Shelley Yates (Fire the Grid) as holding embedded tones to aid in the ascension of humanity to the next paradigm. His music holds LIGHT & LOVE and is carefully sequenced to assist during meditation, to open and activate chakras, or simply to uplift the listener to a place of pure joy and bliss! Bradfield soothes, inspires and uplifts all in one breath, bathing us in a rich, authentic tapestry that reminds us who we are, of our own unique potential. Twenty years and twenty one albums into the perfection of his Art, he continues to create “time capsules of catharsis” that take on a new and wonderful intimate dimension when delivered in the context of his original show. You are invited to join us for a CD Release Celebration with Bradfield on Friday 30 Sept. in Ottawa. Time: 7:30pm, doors open at 7pm. Venue: Church of the Ascension, 253 Echo Drive. Tickets: $30 ($25 before September 23). Online tickets: www.APSISMUSIC.com/live or www.OTTAWASOUNDHEALINGCONFERENCE.com/events. Other info: MAIKE@613-614-1611

Drowning In a Sea of Electropollution (Hope You Can Swim) Canadians are perilously overexposed to electromagnetic radiation. We are under continual attack from electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) radiating from power lines, wi-fi towers, household wiring, microwave ovens, computers, HDTV’s, clock radios, cellular phones and smart meters. Researchers have correlated electropollution with increase in cancer, birth defects, depression, learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The danger is real and with increasing use of electricity in our environment it is one of the reasons why many scientists believe some disease rates are on the rise. EMF’s are not blocked by trees, walls, buildings or other structures. Like X-Rays they pass through these objects and into our bodies, disrupting normal cellular function and biological process. New added danger are Smart Meters that use wireless signals to transmit usage information every fifteen minutes back to the utility. Smart Meters have a transmission range of about two miles. The amount of continuous pulsed radiation from thousands of smart meters in a single neighbourhood is raising red flags among critics of EMF pollution. Warning that short-term effects from smart meters include headaches, sleep disruption, tremors, cognitive impairment, tinnitus, increased cancer risk, and heart arrhythmia. The explosion of wireless technologies is producing radio frequency radiation exposure over massive populations before questions are answered by studies about the carcinogenicity or toxicity of the radiation levels. We have products that will keep you afloat in this sea of electropollution. Developed by Peter Webb who has attacked this problem for over thirty years?

Questions In Mediation - Pt2

L

ast time I set out some of the questions I feel are important to ask in mediation. Here are some more. Is this conversation you are having right now similar to ones you have had in the past? If so, what would you like to change about the way you talk to each other in the future? Most couples in mediation repeat on a small scale the patterns of their marriage, with mediation becoming a microcosm of their relationship. This question makes them stand outside their conversation, if only for a moment, and look more objectively at the way they are talking. Even if they express hopelessness at ever being able to change the way they talk together, I try to get them to focus on their abilities to change their communication patterns in the future. It is particularly important to try to help a couple shift their dynamics to a more positive way of interacting when they have small children and thus many years – sometimes more years than they were married – during which they will have to interact with each other. For their sakes, not to mention their children’s, I try to help them find a less stressful, somewhat more respectful and productive way of working together as parents in the future. What would you like your partner to say to you right now? This is one of those “in the moment” questions that can be important to ask. When I see that one person has been trying to elicit a response from the other that isn’t forthcoming, I sometimes stop the conversation and encourage them to

identify what they need from the other in order to move forward. After helping one person articulate what it is s/he needs from the other at that moment, I say something like, “John, Mary has just tried to say what she needs from you at this time to help move your conversation forward in a productive way. Are you able to give her the response she is looking for, or does that not work for you? Is there something you yourself would like to hear from her at this moment?” Sometimes this question acts as a springboard for couples to talk not just about what each of them would like to hear from the other at that moment, but what they would like to receive overall. Often, this takes the form of some kind of acknowledgement or recognition. “I just want him to acknowledge that I contributed to this marriage, too, even though I don’t make nearly as much money as he does.” Or, “I would like some recognition from her that we have all these assets because I worked many long hours over the years.” What Just Happened Here? This is another “in the moment” question. A couple can be having an apparently rational discussion about what appears to be a substantive issue (e.g. how long should her spousal support continue, how should they pay their children’s special expenses, how should his pension be divided) when it suddenly gets derailed. Someone’s “buttons have been pushed.” At times like that, I stop and ask, “What just happened here?” and encourage them to deal with the issue right now, rather than letting it fester and continue to sabotage their conversation. When I ask some of these questions in mediation, clients sometimes say to me, “We aren’t here to talk about our feelings; we’re here to talk about spousal support and division of my pension. This doesn’t have anything to do with why we’re here. Let’s just focus on the legal issues.” Ah, but these questions have everything to do with why they are here. When couples run into roadblocks and cannot settle their legal issues, it is rarely because the legal issue is unclear or complicated. It is almost always because there is something else getting in the way. It is hardly ever the facts that are the problem, but rather the feelings behind the facts. Couples who wind up spending tens of thousands of dollars in court or in protracted lawyer to lawyer negotiations rarely have legally complicated cases. But they almost always have emotionally complicated ones. I have often said that separations are 10% legal and 90% emotional. In my experience it is only by dealing with these emotional questions that the spousal support, pension and other legal issues will ever be resolved. Evita Roche was Canada’s first full-time lawyer-mediator. Since 1979, she has helped over 5,000 couples mediate the issues arising from their separation. In the 1990’s Evita was a Professor of family law and mediation at the University of Ottawa law school, where she received the first Excellence in Teaching Award. Her private practice is restricted to separation and divorce mediation, and she frequently delivers seminars on subjects related to family law

Top 5 Cancer Fighting Foods

E

ven though our life can get busy at this time of year, give yourself the gift of increased energy and add these cancer fighting foods to your menu. Whether eating gluten free or dairy free, Scratch Kitchen has meal solutions to include these powerful cancer fighting foods that taste great and are healthy too! 1. Cruciferous Vegetables Eating more fruits and veggies can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer by 60 percent! Cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower, are rich in fibre and folic acid, both known to lower your risk of developing breast cancer. How to Enjoy? 1 cup of cruciferous vegetables 3-4 x per week, saute in a little olive oil and garlic 2. Green Tea American Institute for Cancer Research has concluded that components found in green tea can help halt the development of cancerous tumours, and even prevent them from appearing in the first place. Green tea contains large amounts of the compound flavonoid—indeed, three times more than that found in other teas. How to enjoy? Drink 2-3 cups daily of green tea to powerful antioxidant.

3. Tomatoes The anti-cancer compound in tomatoes, lycopene, has been shown to be especially potent in combating prostate cancer, breast, lung, stomach and pancreatic cancer. This compound appears to be more easily absorbed if the tomatoes are eaten-either as tomato sauce, paste, or juice. How to enjoy? Spaghetti sauce or drink a tomato juice at breakfast a day. 4.) Flaxseed: Flaxseed in the form of oil and meal contains phytoestrogens believed to reduce the risk of breast, skin, and lung cancer. These substances may have a role in preventing ‘estrogendependent’ cancers such as breast cancer. Lignans are also thought to be antioxidants (the free radical-fighting substances found in many fruits and vegetables). How to enjoy? Sprinkle 2-3 Tablespoons of ground flax on your yogurt or cereal daily 5.) Garlic Garlic contains a number of compounds believed to slow or stop the growth of tumours. The main cancer fighting compound in garlic is a chemical called allicin. Allicin is what gives garlic its distinct smell; it also protects the garlic plant from organisms that may attack it. How to enjoy? Add sliced or crushed garlic to your salad dressings or existing recipes to increase the cancer-fighting ability of that meal.

SRI CHINMOY: If you expect anything from others, you will only get frustration. When you do not get something from others, you get mad at them because they have not fulfilled your desire. Even if you expect something from yourself and you do not get it, you will become irritated and frustrated. You will be doomed to disappointment. You feel that you are useless. Then you become depressed and angry. When this happens, just say to yourself, “This is not the right way. I will do the right thing. If I expect something from the world, I will become frustrated because the world is like that. If I expect something from myself, I may also be unable to achieve it. What I need is patience.” Patience is the thing that is always necessary. But we have to know the difference between patience and tolerance. Sometimes we think that surrendered tolerance is patience, but this is wrong. We have tolerance only because we feel that there is no other way for us, but this tolerance is not patience at all. Real patience is oneness. If it is only tolerance that is trying to take the role of patience, then there will be no real satisfaction. If somebody needs more kindness and affection, then you should be ready to give it to that person—not according to what he deserves, but according to your own heart’s magnanimity. If somebody is nasty to you or is not helping you in your work, you have to take it as a challenge to become extra nice, extra kind and extra sweet so that you can bring forward the good qualities in that person. You have to work in a divine way and try to conquer the person through patience, concern and love. We have to feel that patience is not something passive. On the contrary, it is something dynamic. In patience we develop our inner strength and willpower. It is true that if we have willpower, we can easily acquire patience. But it is equally true that when we have patience, our inner will-power develops itself in a special way. Patience has the steady movement of growth and is always accompanied by peace. Patience is divine strength. Very often people do not know the meaning of patience. They feel it is something weak, a form of cowardice or a reluctant way of accepting the truth. They feel that because there is no other way left, they have to be patient. But we have to know that patience is not something weak. If we are patient, it does not mean that we are forced to surrender to the hard reality of life. No, patience is inner wisdom. Visit www.srichinmoylibrary.com for further writings by Sri Chinmoy.

The Wonder of You!

A course for women of self-care and empowerment through meditation and other self-healing processes By Jennifer Bernius

A

re you ready to commit to yourself – to awaken to your magnificence and make your contribution to the world? This is a course for those of you who want to know and love yourself more – to shed tired, old, false ideas about yourself, and embrace the truth that you are a beautiful radiant being of inestimable value. This course offers pure gold. It’s the distillation of many of the teachings and techniques I’ve practiced for over 30 years. I know they work because they’ve totally transformed me and my life. At one time, I would have thought that was impossible. That was before I discovered for myself that inner peace, love of myself and others, joy and purpose in life are absolutely achievable by those who commit to doing these practices regularly. Deep (mantra) meditation is the foundation of the course. It will do more to help you awaken to your true value than any other technique I know of. Daily practice will calm your restless mind, relax your body and release stress, fears and worries that have robbed you of the joy of life. You’ll experience deep inner peace as you silence your mind and connect with your True Self, the source of pure consciousness. By focusing inward, you raise your vibration and expand your awareness. You come to realize that you’re far more than your limited thoughts and attitudes would have you believe. They’re only self-perceived limitations – not the truth of who you are. You begin to think and act in ways that honour you. No wonder you feel more confident and empowered! Meditation is healing you at depth. Learn, as well, how to stay more centred and balanced in life so you’re not overwhelmed by the world and its demands. Through your growing connection with your inner Self, and by practicing the technique of mindfulness, along with breathing and relaxation exercises, you become more inner-directed and focused – living life from the “inside out,” not the “outside in.” You’ll be more certain in your choices in life, less self-doubting and critical. And you’ll start putting yourself first in a loving way, for you can give more to the world when you do this than by throwing yourself away as you might have done in the past. Developing loving awareness underlies everything you’ll learn in the course. Perhaps you thought love is what others give you when you earn their approval. Now you discover that love is your true nature. To experience more of it, you become “fit” for love – less fearful, more relaxed and open so it can flow through you unhindered to others. By taking care of yourself in every way, you become a source of love, happy to share it with others and to forgive. To help you treat yourself as a beloved friend, you’ll practice kindness journaling. Everyday, you’ll write down ways you treated yourself kindly – or unkindly. How did you treat your body today? Did you give it the food, exercise

62

and loving attention it requires? Or did you abuse it through negative thoughts and junk food? Journaling in this way helps you to be more aware of your habits and to cultivate those that support your health and happiness. You’ll also learn to be more lovingly mindful of your thoughts. See how perfectly your world mirrors your thinking and that only your own thoughts have the power to upset you. Discover techniques to capture and change thoughts so you have more mastery over them. And learn the invaluable emotional freedom technique or tapping, along with affirmations, to help you reprogram your conscious and subconscious minds. Emotions . . . ah yes, let’s not forget them! They’re the voice of your inner child, whom you’ll communicate with and get to know. You’ll learn to embrace all your feelings for the valuable messages they have for you. Understanding them can help you heal unresolved issues and beliefs. And motivate you to create what you want. This course will set you in a positive direction for the rest of your life and help you to grow in every way. And you’ll find in me a teacher who will champion you and your progress – someone who will help you learn to love and believe in yourself, and to create the life you so dearly want! Jennifer Bernius teaches group, corporate and private classes in yoga-inspired meditation and workshops on personal development. She has taught meditation for 25 years. Her teachings are a way of life for her and for many of her students. For information about The Wonder of You! or other classes, call 613-721-3787or email jbernius@rogers.com

Contemplative Photography By Henry Fernando

C

ontemplative Photography combines the practice of seeing with the practice of mindfulness. The contemplative approach to photography is to have a calm and quiet mind, and align it with the element of human vision. But how do we see, really and truly see the world around us? We’re so busy in our daily life that we walk around like robots. We take the kids to the baby sitter, we rush to go to work, we hurriedly prepare meals, and we go through the day on auto pilot mode. While we’re doing all of these things, our mind is thinking of what we’ll be doing next, always distracted and immune to its surroundings. Contemplative Photography teaches us to slow down, quiet our mind, open our eyes, and be aware of the phenomenal world around us. In Contemplative Photography there are two basic elements. First, you have to be present, be there with your mind open, and be fully aware. This is what “contemplation” is. It is genuinely paying attention, and being mindful of the moment to moment changes that are happening around us. The simple practice of awareness can be incorporated in your daily routine. For example, feel the warm water on your body as you are taking a shower, or look out the window as you are washing the dishes, and really see the colours in your garden or the light shining on the white snow.

Second, you have to look at the world around you as it is. That means that you look at things without any judgment, no “like” or “dislike”, “ugly” or “beautiful”, and no preconceived ideas. It is important that as we take photographs, we throw away our discriminatory mind. Anais Nin, the French-Cuban author said that “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”. Once we open our eyes to a new way of seeing, it will open a whole new world of endless perceptions, and allow us to take wonderful photographs. So, before you even aim your camera to shoot, here’s something you can easily do to tune up your eyes and align them with your mind. If you are outside, slowly and quietly walk with no particular place to go. Pay attention to each step that you take, and feel the hardness of the pavement or the softness of the grass under your feet. Feel the breeze on your skin, look at the colour and texture of the plants and trees, the walls and billboards along the way, and even the broken beer bottle on the sidewalk. And if you are at home, sit quietly in a comfortable chair. Pay attention to your breathing, and look at the room you are in. Notice the light and shadow in the room, the colourful frame that is hanging on the wall, the candle on your coffee table, and the texture of the pillows on your couch. Be aware of the visual richness that is around you. As you continue your practice in Contemplative Photography, you will see your world with fresh eyes and notice things that you have not seen before. It will greatly sharpen your power of observation, reawaken your sense of wonder, and enable you to create heartfelt and meaningful images! Henry Fernando is an international award winning photographer based in Ottawa. He is trained in Contemplative Photography and gives contemplative photography workshops geared to beginners and experienced photographers alike.

The Kingdom of Peace “At the end of days: The wolf will dwell with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the cobra’s den and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Creator, as the waters cover the sea. Their swords will be beaten into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, and they will study war no more.” This is the Creators description of what will occur at ‘the end of days’, which He spoke to my ancestors, the children of Yisrael. This kingdom of peace and righteousness would come about after a ‘Great Cleansing’ of the earth and humanity at large, when only the meek, the humble and the righteous would remain to inherit the ‘new earth’. When would this time of cleansing begin? The prophet Moses warned my people that they would eventually reject the Creators ways, break their covenant of peace with their neighbour and with Him, and that He would break His covenant with them. Because they had failed to keep their promise to be their ‘brothers keeper’ and to care for the

poor, the widow, the orphan and the stranger, the Creator broke His covenant with them and expelled them from their land. However, af-ter a period of ‘seven times’ He said that He would forgive their trans-gressions and return them to the promised land. What is the meaning of the ‘seven times prophecy’? and when would be its fulfillment? A ‘time’ is a year, and ‘seven times’ is seven years of 365 days, or 2555 days. In prophecy a day is equal to a year in historical time. So, when was this time of His judgment upon His people to begin? King Nebuchadnezzar first invaded Jerusalem in 606 BCE, and if we add 2555 years to this date we come to 1949 A.D. This tells us that Gods judgment upon His chosen people would be completed by 1949, which is one year after Yisrael returned to their land to become a nation in 1948. After 1900 years of not being a nation, like a phoenix rising out of the ashes, the nation of Yisrael miraculously reappeared, exactly when Moses predicted it would. However, in order for His people to be worthy of His kingdom of peace and righteousness, they would have to return to Him and be obedient to His teachings; for the fruit of right-eousness is justice, and the fruit of justice, peace. Then, and only then, would His promised messianic kingdom come to fruition. Mt. Zion/the Teacher of Righteousness

T h e K i n g d o m o f Pe a ce What if a man went searching for God and met Him on a mountaintop? What would He reveal to him? Imagine a world where people were noble and kind and where mercy and justice ruled the land; crime was relatively unknown and jails and prisons did not exist; each and every family possessed their own house and plot of land, and banks and mortgages did not exist: the land could not be bought or sold, because it belonged to the succeeding generations of unborn children, and all debts were forgiven every seven years, when the land, the people and their animals were given their rest. Our Creator has already imagined this for His children. Come out and hear more of this amazing revelation. Wednesday @ 7:00 pm Sept. 14 & 20, 26 & Oct. 4 September 2011

Why Hypnosis?

An article by Lynne Cardinal ypnosis is a powerful and highly effective practice, despite it being somewhat unknown or misunderstood. I’m convinced that it’s one of the bestkept secrets for self-improvement, with the capacity to impact all areas of life. For example, within just a few months, I managed to lose not only the annoying ten extra pounds that seemed to have become a permanent fixture in my life, but an additional ten pounds--and still going. Amazed at this result, I soon realised that hypnosis can be applied to just about any issue, as its foundational principles are easily adapted. Let me explain how this works. Mind can be divided into two parts: the superficial mind and the deeper, wiser mind. The superficial mind is rather complicated; it is conditioned, judgemental, unbalanced, and often selfsabotaging. This part of mind easily finds reasons to procrastinate, overlook things, or simply remain in denial. We often function from that smaller part of our mind, without realising our vast and untapped underlying potential. In a way, the superficial mind is only the tip of the iceberg. The deeper, wiser part of mind rests at the heart of everyone and is readily available at all times. It is our seat of power. It’s where everything is made easier. This deeper part of our mind, let’s call it the subconscious, is simple. Where the subconscious mind obeys, the superficial mind doubts, postpones, and generates unease. During a deeply relaxing hypnosis session, I help you connect with the subconscious mind to enhance your chosen objectives. These objectives will then be easily integrated into your life. For example, if your objective is weight loss, through hypnosis your subconscious is asked to help you eat smaller portions of food or healthier meals; following the session, you’ll find an automatic tendency to do so. Tell the subconscious to relax you, and it will; ask it to make you dislike smoking, and it does. I have consistently seen such remarkable results that this practise can only increase in popularity. It’s helpful for just about anything that bothers you. You can also use it to reduce fears (flying, public speaking), social unease, and insomnia or to increase self-esteem, confidence, and motivation. It can even be used to de-clutter! Hypnotic sessions can inspire you to create your own future, inciting the passion and ambition that are keys to fulfilling your dreams. For more details, or to enquire about a hypnosis session, you can contact Lynne at (613) 721-7888.

Kalia Kalia is a unique technique that empowers beings physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Denise Morier received this as a Divine transmission. Kalia is set in Divinely chosen individuals. By reading this article, you have received Kalia. Once set, Kalia stays for infinity with the person’s soul as a tool of growth. It is 100% effective for all individuals. Kalia is implemented by saying “Kalia that!” or an equivalent statement. Using Kalia brings about 4 results: • sets the intention to heal the root cause of any states of being that are other than Divine intended. • introduces life-enhancing beliefs aligned with Divine intent. • enhances anything that is already life-enhancing, to support more of the same. • increases our capacity to love. The more that people use Kalia, the more evolved they become. Our inner being is like a light bulb that has been covered with all the less than life-enhancing beliefs we have accumulated. Using Kalia reveals our inner light. Once our light can shine fully, the continued use of Kalia provides greater access to more light. We become what we really are, radiant beings having an amazing experience. For some individuals, to Kalia in a group intensifies the benefits. The more a person uses Kalia, the quicker their evolution. Denise Morier is a spiritual guide and purveyor of light. She has been a professional educator/facilitator for over 13 years. She will be co-facilitating a healing retreat being held in Gatineau, Québec from October 27-30 where you will learn to use Kalia effectively; learn about MURTUI; heal on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level; enhance access to your inner wisdom; and improve how you ask questions.

Reiki and Kidneys by Alexis Nicol

In my early days of Reiki training I had a wonderful experience that increased my faith substantially. It was late in the Spring and a regular day at the office when, Robert, a co-worker of mine, received some devastating news. He must have seen a confused look on my face when he was trying to explain his condition to me so he invited me into his office. I was just inside the doorway as he was rounding the desk to get to the computer when I had the urge to aim my hands towards him. I was amazed at the force of energy that emanated from them. I immediately pulled my hands away and placed them behind my back. I didn’t want to give him Reiki without his permission. He showed me examples of his type of condition on the computer screen and how serious and life-threatening his diagnosis was. There were photos of kidneys covered with cysts. Robert continued to explain that his father had died of this exact disease at the same age Robert was at the time. His kidneys were covered with cysts and he had been advised that he would have to undergo dialysis treatment. He was devastated. I asked him if he would allow me to give him Reiki. As most people – he had not heard of Reiki. I gave him a quick overview on how it works. Reiki is a gentle healing modality that heals on many levels, mental, emotional, physical, metaphysical, etc. I told him that I had recently learned how to do Long distance healing with Reiki and I’d love to have the opportunity to practice on him. He was so excited and said “Of course!” and that he appreciated all the help he could get and that his congregation was praying for him too. Over the summer I gave Robert long distance Reiki in earnest, two to three times a day. I hardly saw Robert until after summer was over as we were both busy with work, travel, vacations, etc. Finally, in September, I had the chance to ask him how he was doing and if he was feeling any better. With a surprised look on his face, he responded, “I didn’t tell you? There’s been a Miracle – I have 90% use of my kidneys and I’ll never have to go on dialysis.” I told him know how happy I was for him and walked away smiling to myself being so grateful for Reiki, his openness to receiving it and for all those that prayed for him.

What Did Your Mother Teach You? Patricia Wall ©Take the Lid Off Inc

P

erhaps your mother taught you to cook or how to sew on a button. There are some practical skills your mom may have passed on. There are also patterns imprinted deep in your subconscious that taught you how the world will treat you – and these patterns come from your mother. To catch a glimpse of what was installed, try answering these questions. Allow yourself to record the first words that pop into your head, even if they’re irrational or silly.

What do you want from your mother that you don’t get? What did you want from your mother when you were eight years old? Now that you’re a rational adult, what have you accepted that your mother can’t give you because she’s human?

Whatever words came to mind are revealing the energy you put out to the world, telling people how to treat you, and manifesting circumstances. Whatever popped up is your key to unlock a different experience of how the world treats you. If you had an uncomfortable relationship with your mother, you might have had words pop like ‘nothing’ that are a rejection of wanting anything – and that rejection extends to ‘the world.’ Make whatever choices feel right about interaction with your mother, and free your life from these patterns that are forbidding some kinds of abundance and support and love. If you had a great mom and feel you were loved and supported, maybe the kind of word that would pop into your head could be ‘time.’ You might wish you had more time with that kind of love, or more time to enjoy your life. This is the trick with this kind of program. You can have a great mom – she still had chores to do and as a little kid, there may have been moments you wanted more of her time. That pattern would impact your energy by creating stresses in your life that make you feel you don’t have enough time, especially for yourself or activities that are more nurturing for you. The great part about clearing work is that as you remove those programs, you’ll find you don’t feel as stressed or pressed for time. The energy can open up your life and reveal new ways to enjoy. Sometimes the challenges are around acceptance of your distinct being. Moms are often coaching their kids about how to get on in the world, and sometimes well-meant

messages suppress elements of your creativity or physical energy or intuition. A mother might urge a child to be friendly to new playmates, inadvertently suppressing the child’s intuition that the new playmate will be hurtful. A mother might urge a child to be tidy, inadvertently suppressing creative energy. A mother might urge a child to be caring, inadvertently creating programs that require taking on other people’s stuff. Sometimes you will work hard to clear something you’ve recognized as detrimental, and it seems like the behaviour or habit or emotional pattern just won’t go. That can be about aim – if you’re aiming at a behaviour without realizing it’s anchored in a mom program, the issue can be anchored by the connection to mom. By understanding that these programs are anchored in mom’s imprinting, you can aim in a way that allows them to release. When you feel you’ve identified and cleared what you discover with the questions above, try going in the other direction to find more: think about how the world treats you. What would you like to change? All of these patterns about how the world will treat you can be peeled away using the Unlock meditation from the Living Your Light CD, or other tools you have learned. You can get the CD from Osloda.com or at the Crystal Dawn store downtown. Now that you know how to aim at these patterns, you can open your life to great experiences. Enjoy!

Reiki and the Dragonfly By Sonia McCleave

E

very morning when I wake up I, make it part of my routine to thank the Divine for the amazing day He has lined up for me. I ask the Universe “how may I serve?” and can hardly wait to see how my day unfolds. Some days it could be as simple as offering an overworked cashier a smile, other days it’s more complicated but still very gratifying. I am a Lightworker so I live to help others on their journey. Let’s get to the story now… On a Saturday in July I was sitting on the deck enjoying a warm and sunny morning. All was good in my world. I went inside momentarily and when I returned I noticed a dragonfly sitting on the deck behind my husband’s lawn chair. I mentioned to him to be careful of it. He replied that it just crash dived into the patio door and came to rest there. I looked at it. I had a sip of my water. The Universe called. I put down my glass and looked around for something to use to gently scoop the dragonfly up with. I did not want to touch its body or wings for risk of damaging it further. I located a broken fly swatter. It would be useful to slide underneath the dragonfly’s sticky feet. My attempt was successful as I slid the dragonfly off the swatter and into the palm of my hand. I held my other hand over the dragonfly in kind of a tent fashion and began sending it Divine healing energy. I am attuned to many healing energies, so I just opened all the channels I have access to and gently sent the energy to the dragonfly. Reiki energy was the dominant energy coming through for this healing, along with Dynamic Release Healing. I made sure I left the dragonfly enough room to fly away if it chose to. It sat motionless for a few moments. I took the opportunity to observe it. What a complex and beautiful creature this dragonfly was. I never had the opportunity to see one so close up. I felt honoured that the Divine would place the life of this delicate being in the palm of my hand! When I looked closely, I could see it breathing. The thorax part of its body was moving in and out slowly. Originally, we thought its wings were damaged and that is why it didn’t fly away. Its wings did not look damaged. After a few minutes the dragonfly tried to fly. He took off out of my hand, but spiraled down only a few feet away from me. It sat there motionless. I picked up the broken fly swatter and gently lifted him off the deck and back into the palm of my hand. This time I notice his head was bobbing like a bobble head toy. He must have damaged his neck when he hit the door and this affected his ability to fly. I examined his head area. The dragonfly’s head looks like an

72

astronaut helmet where the surroundings are reflected on the surface of his eyes. I gently increased the power of the energy I was sending him and called out for higher assistance. He remained in my hand for a few more minutes. I’m not sure how long it was, but then he took off again. This time he lasted longer in the air, but again spiraled down to the deck. Again I gently scooped him up with the swatter and into my hand. Resuming the energy flow and concentrating on his neck area; he remained still this time for the longest time of all energy transmissions. He remained motionless in my palm for about 10 minutes. On the third try he flew from my palm into the air with full control this time and up, up, and away to one of the treetops. I was thrilled. As I wrote this article tears came to my eyes and I momentarily choked up. To think that I was chosen to participate in healing of one of God’s wondrous creatures was very humbling. Since then, whenever I sit outside I am visited by dragonflies constantly!

Fall Into A new Skin Care Regime

A

s we move slowly from the sultry heat of summer to the multi-hued temperateness of autumn, we naturally shift our outer vestments to reflect the changing weather conditions. And, yet, few of us stop to consider the changing needs of our skin. Just as we must change the manner by which we dress our bodies, so too must we change the way that we dress our skin. Many of us will notice more dermal dryness during this seasonal shift. Creams containing beeswax can prove invaluable, as they provide an excellent barrier against moisture loss. Other ingredients to look for in a natural, moisturizing cream are plant-based oils like sweet almond, olive, and avocado, which contain naturally occurring vitamins, as well as other nutrients, to nourish the skin. Topical application of oils rich in essential fatty acids, such as seabuckthorn, flaxseed, and borage seed oil can also contribute greatly to the overall health of the skin, as they help to nourish the skin from the outside in. While switching over to a natural moisturizer containing key ingredients, such as beeswax and plant-based oils, can dramatically improve our dermal health, the penultimate way to cater to our skin is to create our own special blend, tailored to our own specific needs and preferences. Not sure how? We offer DIY workshops for just that reason! Check our website for details. Beautiful skin is more than skin deep. While there is no doubt that the right creams and lotions can contribute greatly to producing a clear, vibrant complexion, if we truly wish to enjoy the most healthy, radiant skin possible, we must focus on internal as well as external factors. Proper hydration cannot be overstated. Healthy skin is hydrated skin. Although it is true that we lose a great deal of water via sweat during the hot summer months, it is also true that, in the fall and winter, indoor heating and low outdoor humidity draw moisture from the skin. Help keep skin moist and supple by striving to drink at least eight 8 oz glasses of pure, clean water every day. If possible, drink throughout the day, even if thirst isn’t present. It is best not to wait to drink until we feel thirsty, as thirst is the body’s way of letting us know that we are already dehydrated. Emphasize a diet filled with nutrient-dense, whole foods. Although it can be tempting to reach for rich, hearty foods when the temperature starts to plummet and the days

September 2011

grow shorter, we had best reconsider. According to Dr. Alan C. Logan, ND, FRSH, author of The Clear Skin Diet, there is an indisputable connection between certain kinds of foods and acne. Certain fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids (found in such foods as salmon, flaxseeds, hemp hearts, etc.) protect against acne, while others, such as saturated or trans fats (found in such foods as fast food, fatty cuts of meat, cheese, etc.) can promote acne by increasing the level of inflammation and oxidative stress in the skin. What’s more, these same dietary stresses also influence the level of androgens, the hormones that cause acne. For clear, glowing skin, emphasize fresh vegetables and fruits, wild and/ or organic fish, beans, lentils, and whole grains. Avoid, or seriously restrict, dairy products, refined sugars, and highly processed, low-fibre carbohydrates (e.g. white bread, white pasta, white rice, etc.). The former will lessen these acne-causing androgens, while the latter will amplify them. Naturally-raised meats (e.g. pasture-fed beef, chicken, turkey, etc.) can be part of a healthy diet, but they should be consumed in moderation. Get your beauty sleep. Not only can insufficient sleep affect hormonal balance in adults, leading to an increased prevalence of a high junk food diet, tissue repair also occurs during sleep. This includes repair to the daily skin damage done by UV light. Getting enough deep sleep will also help the skin repair itself. Just remember to use a nighttime lotion or oil that still allows your skin to breathe, so that healing can occur. Think about how important it is to ingest fresh, wholesome foods for radiant health, then apply the same principal to what you put on your body as well. You will no doubt see the results in the quality of your skin. ©2011 Kristin Shropshire/Heather Garrod, Planet Botanix, 301 Bank St,567.4444.

TANTRISM or SACRED SEXUALITY “It is said in Tantrism that woman represents the power and that man incarnates the capacity for wonder, for marvel” – Daniel Odier The roots of tantrism are very ancient and it offers an opportunity to delve into the richness of the heart and the human spirit. It is still practiced in India, Nepal and Tibet. It is now emerging more and more in the western world. Bernard brings his new insight based on 19 years of being exposed to different master teachers and practice in Hinduism tantrism. The outline of the presentation will be the following: • Differentiation between Tantric traditions: Buddhism, Tibetan, Hinduism • Hinduism tantrism throughout history – its roots and evolution • Basic tenet of tantrism • Reconciliation of sexuality and spirituality • Rediscover the sacredness of sensuality • Understanding the true meaning of love according to the Tantric tradition • Understanding the mystic union of tantrism through sensuality Thursday October 6th, 2011, 7pm at Saint-Paul University Cost: $10.00 Contact: Monelle Ross at 613-806-2144 or monelleross@yahoo.com Michèle Gagnier at 613-852-4041 or mimi23@rogers.com Bernard has been involved in the approach of energetic healing for now 23 years.

Since over fifteen years he has been teaching the Ancient Egypto-Essenien Healing Arts to an increasing number of students in various countries among which are Italy, France, Spain and Canada (Quebec), and now Bernard is responding to an English language demand.

Power Up Your Life in Almonte this September!

A

ndrew Harvey is author of The Hope: A Guide To Sacred Activism, and Founder Director of the Institute of Sacred Activism. He is described as a renowned and distinguished mystical scholar, Rumi translator and explicator, poet, novelist, spiritual teacher and writer, and architect of Sacred Activism. Impressive, right? And you can meet him and learn from him right in your own backyard! Well, almost in your own backyard. September 23 to 25, you are invited to participate in the second Power Up Your Life weekend in Almonte, The Friendly Town. It all begins on Friday night, as Andrew presents the film Dancing in the Flames, a documentary about Marion Woodman, directed by Adam Greydon Reid. Born in London, Ontario, to a preacher, Marion Woodman trained in Zurich and is one of the most widely read authors on feminine psychology. She encouraged people to get in tune with the messages in their subconscious, and warned us “If we don’t release the energies of the body, we end up in the hospital.” She has also helped bridge the gap between the sexes with such work as Bly & Woodman On Men & Women, a videotaped workshop with poet Robert (Iron John) Bly, a pioneer in the men’s movement. Workshop participants may release some of their own energies through music, after the film. The workshop begins in full on Saturday, as Andrew discusses how effective it can be to combine the forces of spirituality and activism in our lives. Then delve into the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine and learn how to access them in yourselves and how they can affect our world. Sunday, Andrew will lay out the seven laws for sacred activism, covering topics such as the necessity of incorporating a spiritual practice into your life, transforming anger into wise energy, the importance of community or what he calls “Networks of Grace”, and more. Through these laws, he shows that neither the noble, pragmatic work of the activist nor the passive spirituality of the individual is enough to change the world. These two must be fused to affect real change. The seeds for Power Up Your Life were first planted when Lilly White awoke from a dream with a message that Almonte needed to host a three-day spiritual event that was accessible, affordable and not-for-profit. The intent was to bring people together in unity within the community to nourish mind, body and spirit. This led to the first Power Up Your Life weekend in 2009, where the keynote speaker, medical intuitive Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, along with guest speakers Chipo Chambare, Deborah Owen, Ruthann Pisaretz and Mary Anderson, shared knowledge and understanding with participants. They spoke of listening to your body, your heart, your mind. The participants, speakers and volunteers enjoyed the exchange of information and the feeling of safe friendship amongst the group. And they asked for more.

If you still have trouble, email me at lbaird@istar.ca 1. I know that you are mentally maxed out and physically exhausted from the rollercoaster ride of late. All was meant to change and end, so let it go and close the door. You will be glad to hear that it is a whole new ball game as of Sept. It is time to start over, and it is important that you be involved in the planting of new seeds this month. Look for new opportunities or just do something differently. I know that you want a major change in your life, and there is no better time than NOW. 2. What are you waiting for? Whatever it is you will still be waiting in Sept. Things are just slow, slow, and even slower during a 2 influence, so be patient. There are always delays and many frustrations that can create a large knot in your forehead, so try to get ZEN early and stay there, no matter what. Relationships seem to be the biggest issue. 3. Are you pregnant? Don’t have a heart attack, as it is not always about having a baby. This is a time of renewal and healing. It could also be the rebirth of you after some very trying times. You will be faced with more duties starting in Oct, so factor in as much fun and mindlessness as you can, now. This would be a great period for selling, writing and promoting yourself, or your ideas. 4. No more fun for you, my friend. I really hope that you had some down time in Aug., as Sept. is a hard working period that requires focus, duty and discipline. Remember to take care of yourself, and fix what needs fixing ASAP. Get a new fitness membership and seriously start to reconstruct your body. Your bank account might need some work, too. 5. There will be lots of twists and turns this month. Be ready to take advantage of opportunities to advance and make some radical changes in your life. Try to remain calm, cool and collected at all times. You will be more prone to lose your temper, so watch your mouth, as you

might say something that gets you into trouble. This is a perfect month to travel, sell and move home or office. There is a tendency to speed and take risks, so be very careful in all you do. 6. Everyone needs a piece of you, and there might not be enough pieces to go around. Forget about having any time for yourself, and make friends with obligations and duties. Use this month to do house work, renovations, and focus on old or any family issues that need to be resolved. Rest and recovery time will be available and necessary, in Oct. 7. What have you been dwelling on this year? Whatever it is, your head will be filled to bursting, now. Try to relax and take some time to regenerate yourself. Relationships and money issues may be troublesome. Get in control of your overactive mind. Take some time to learn something new, or meditate, as this will help. You will feel stronger and more yourself in Oct. Save any major decisions until then. 8. Are you being tested and evaluated this month? The chance of recognition or advancement is emphasized, so watch your posture. You may have to make some very important decisions, so be prepared to jump. Career and money issues are in the spotlight. Keep your eyes and ears wide open for new opportunities. It is very important to not sit and twiddle your thumbs but to take action, now. 9. This is a super month to pack your bags and hit the road. If you can’t take a trip, put a big effort into finishing your TO DO list and clear a path so that you can start new endeavors next month. Start nothing now, only ditch, purge and get rid of the old projects and stuff. There may be an ending or major drama that causes you to panic. This door is meant to close. Let it go and force yourself to trust that all is well in perfect time. LAURA YOUNG IS AN INTUITIVE NUMEROLOGIST AND CORE BELIEF MODIFICATION COACH.

Deliberately Debt-Free By Dr. AlixSandra Parness, DD

N

ot long ago, while doing research about how the brain works, I learned that when we think about the idea of debt it actually triggers the reptilian brain that is geared for survival. This ancient part of us is our worker-brain that can become obsessive, overwhelming all of our thoughts, when something real or imaginary threatens to harm us. When we are in debt, we are in survival mode. The limbic brain is in charge of emotional response to life, for example, the idea of debt. The reptilian and limbic parts of the brain work in tandem often accessing old patterns of fight or flight. This tried and true pattern will replay over and over until we become consciousness enough to take control of the only thing we can control--how we feel about something. The frontal lobe of the brain contains something called the pre-frontal cortex, which is the higher conscious part of the brain. The pre-frontal cortex lies directly between the eyebrows in the very front of the brain, precisely where the “third-eye” is located. When the “third eye” is activated there is a vibration that is set into motion

that awakens the pituitary gland in the center of the brain, which in turn activates the pineal gland to open the crown chakra. So in actuality you can think of this as the “third eye system”. The pre-frontal cortex is of tremendous significance because this is the part of the brain that activates joy, confidence and compassion, in other words this is the place that holds the key to be-ing completely debt-free. Free of the debt of feeling unworthy of living a life of wonderous JOY! I discovered the secret of taming the survival part of my mind and being truly debt-free: Bless Don’t Condemn. I discovered that each time I created an emotional debt that financial debt quickly followed. So, to start the process of becoming deliberately debtfree, you start with something that you can control right now, and that is how you feel. Here is how you do that: When you wake up, before you get out of bed, starting off the day by blessing your bed and the soft sheets you are laying on or the comfy blanket you love. Bless the air you are breathing aligning with the wonderful life before you. Taking time to appreciate every little thing you can in that moment throughout the day. As you do these things you activate your pre-frontal cortex and begin to feel happier.

Facing Our Fear Of A Diagnosis By Thyra Whitford

T

here is great healing that can occur when we find ourselves faced with a diagnosis of an illness. Once we face our uncertainties and fears, a diagnosis can show us where to focus to be better. It can assist us to further understand our purpose, help us to love ourselves and others more completely and bring some much needed “real” to our lives so we can decipher what is truly important. When there is an overwhelming fear of death we can’t see clearly or allow healing into our systems, sometimes even influencing how the medical system can help us. We are called to look deeply at our beliefs and re-evaluate them. If your belief system doesn’t make you feel comfortable about death, something that is so natural to our existence here, perhaps it’s time to take another look and adjust it. DEATH. Eventually we all die. If the fear is not being on the planet, then some new questions to assist you may be, “How will I live my life to the fullest and be the Best Me while I am here?” “What gifts do I have to share?” “Who will I have an impact on and positively influence today? How will I be remembered and how do I feel about that?” WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEATH? If you find fear in not being in your body, having a strong belief system here can be as important to a healthy life as exercising and eating the right foods. No one knows for sure what happens after death. Perhaps it’s meant to be different for everyone. What do you believe? HELL, HEAVEN and PURGATORY? These are Christian rooted, based on the belief that your entrance into them depends on how you live your life. So, are you the Best You? Is it time to forgive yourself and others and/or to release fears and judgments so you can grow? If so, do that now. Decide that you are shifting and allowing the path that is Divine Intended for your journey to show itself to you. From this moment you are different and working toward your path. Don’t look back – only forward. Love yourself. NOTHINGNESS? If you have the belief that there is nothing after life and it scares you, look at it. How can you explain people who feel the presence of those who have died, people with unexplained fears, or an attraction or repulsion to others at first sight? Déjà-vu? Dreams that become reality? The knowingness that someone will call or show up? The power of prayer? Miracles? Luck? or Fate? If there isn’t something bigger in play, where do these energies come from? CHEATING DEATH? If we have this power how can we explain when people have placed guns to their heads, clearly willing their lives away, pulled the trigger and lived, while others have dropped dead accidentally bumping their heads on the kitchen table? Perhaps instead we have a series of pre-ordained “check-out” points during which time we may choose to stay (live) or go (die)? Could we possibly have a FINAL “END” DATE which is non-negotiable on any level? If we don’t have any control over our end date, then you can’t die before your time, so today, be kind to yourself and others, share your messages of love and feel wonderful about yourself.

What do you believe? When you understand what you believe in, hold onto it and allow it to take you away from fear so you can continue to live, grow and be the Best You. Thyra Whitford is a workshop/retreat facilitator and artist who channels Divine Energy to assist people on their journeys. Thyra will be a co-facilitator at the Healing Retreat being held in Gatineau, QC from October 27-30 where she will offer a workshop on developing, understanding and enhancing your relationships, a session of connecting with your bodies to enhance healing and a Mother Earth connective meditation session.

What can Visceral Manipulation do for my yoga?

Y

ou may be the best yoga student you’ve ever been, and you still can’t open beyond a certain place. Your range of motion may be limited by your Viscera. You may think it is you, and it is, but it may be that your organs are holding you back. Visceral Manipulation can help you • • • • •

open your hips and shoulders twist deeper sit and stand taller without effort free your ribcage and more

How? If your Sigmoid colon, which is the last part of your large intestine, is restricted in your left Iliacus, then your left hip will be pretty tight, and stretching will be painful. Likewise, if the ligament between your Right Iliacus and your Ceceum, the first part of your large intestine, is tight, your right hip will feel sore and achy, and probably you will have digestive issues. If your small intestine is tight, your lower back will be a chronic dull ache. If you are a woman, your Uterus could be restricing movement in your sacrum and coccyx, and even cause headaches and jaw pain. You might experience PMS and want to bite people’s heads off. If your stomach isn’t moving, your food will be sitting at the bottom, and long term you will have limited range of motion in your left shoulder., and you might have low self-esteem. If your liver is stuck under your rib cage, similarly, you will have limited right shoulder mobility. And you might experience depression. What does all this mean? The old song “The hip bone is connected to the thigh bone, and the . . .” is true after all. Organs are housed in connective tissue. If you have ever done Yin yoga, then you know all about your connective tissue. You know that it moves very slowly, but it moves, in response to every move we make, and you can sculpt it, so long as you are patient, peaceful, and listening. With applied patience, peacefulness, and focussed alertness, Visceral Manipulation can free up your abdomen, which allows you to go deeper into your pose.

Foundations for Spiritual Advancement

M

any people join a religion or a spiritual school and assume that once they have heard a theory and have accepted it, they are on their way to reaching God, illumination or liberation. And yet, learning about the parameters of spiritual growth does not equate experiencing the growth itself, as the key to progress lies in practicing the teachings, applying them constantly in one’s life. There is a common intent shared amongst all religions, which is the longing to transcend the physical plane. This is a sense in one’s heart that what we see in our daily life is not the totality of life, a comprehension that what we commonly see terrestrially is fruitless and pointless by itself. This reveals the second common element amongst all religious people, and that is the necessity to personally experience the Truth. The sincere practitioner of any spiritual path is unsatiated with the terrestrial pleasures and repetition of events, being tired of the endless circle of pain and pleasure. Many are those who tend to forget or postpone dealing with the true purpose of their existence as they get caught up in religious or political debates, the pursuit of money, career, possessions, etc. But in the heart of the true seeker, there is a deep sense of urgency to find a higher purpose and live by superior ethics. Ending suffering and finding meaning and happiness cannot be found in external circumstances or changes: a job, a spouse, a marriage, children, moving to another city, a new wardrobe or hairstyle. The solution is found in our consciousness. And there is a path to accomplish that, and to fully awaken the consciousness. This ancient path, commonly known as Gnosis, provides both theoretical and practical tools to end suffering and awaken the spirit. The foundation of every religion is ethics: knowing how to live, in agreement with a divine code of conduct. To advance spiritually, one needs to know very well about the consequences of one’s action, because as long as one is persisting in actions that produce harm, to him or others, one cannot possibly succeed in any higher practice. Comprehension means conscious knowledge followed by action, not just concept or belief. Someone who is conscious of these facts becomes a different person, and that is reflected in how they engage with other people, how they use their speech, their mind, their talents, and what purpose they give to their life. This type of person begins to radiate a new force, a new energy, which in Sanskrit is called Bodhichitta - “wisdom mind.” It is a kind of wisdomlove that is far beyond anything we can imagine in relation to our concepts of love. It is the love that shows in one’s actions. Such a person always does his best to not cause harm to others. This implies a fundamental and permanent change, therefore this path is for the most brave, because changing oneself radically is the hardest of all undertakings. Once a person is showing signs that Bodhichitta is emerging in their mind and actions, they receive higher teachings, to

September 2011

utilize them for the benefit of themselves and others. These are very potent techniques, and also dangerous, and that is why traditionally these techniques are only taught when someone has already established these factors consciously in themselves. Consciously means they understand not just intellectually but in their heart, and above all in their actions. Such a person knows that every harmful act causes suffering, even if the suffering isn’t visible or immediate. They also live with an urgency to serve others, to help them, to reduce their suffering and help them awaken consciousness. Such a person is able to receive higher teachings and use them in a new way, because they are already accustomed to use the divine gifts in a way that will not cause any harm. This is why for many centuries the highest teachings of all religions were always protected, kept secret, being given only to the deserving, self-elected few. The ancient Egyptian rituals taught that the veil of the mysteries, the metaphorical veil of Isis, could not be lifted by “mortals”, but only by those who live up to the Divine will, that is the pure and “immortals” beings of the spirit.

Going to Raw Extremes?

By Sarah Ives hile some claim a raw foods diet is extreme, it actually isn’t so! For thousands upon thousands of years humans primarily consisted on a diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, making it the most basic human way of eating. Many call it the first human diet. Since our bodies grew so accustomed to this way of eating, it may explain why consuming even a little more raw food can have amazing health effects. It may also be why so many people report miraculous stories of healing and achievement when they include many more raw foods in their diets. But one need not toss away all the food one enjoys on a daily basis. You can make big changes in your diet by making small alterations that won’t deprive you. I like to explain it in two ways: you can take foods out of your diet, or you can add raw foods to your diet, without necessarily sacrificing the small pleasures. Over time, as your palate becomes adjusted to more raw foods, you may find that your interest in the less-than-perfect food lessens. By simply adding more raw food to your diet, you experience an easy, gentle introduction to raw foods without compromising other aspects of your life. Start by adding a green smoothie to your daily diet, and you will jump leaps and bounds nutritionally. Greens are a formidable source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins and more research to prove just how essential greens are to humans is ongoing (some argue greens should be the fifth food group). Needed smoothie equipment is minimal – a blender, cutting board and a knife. And smoothies are fast, quick and easy to transport with you to work or school. As well, you can make your smoothie the night before and store it in a sealed container overnight, without losing the essential nutrients. Above all, a green smoothie tastes fantastic and there are infinite variations. Start out with a couple of mangoes, a couple handfuls of spinach and a squeeze of lemon juice with water to blend. Then experiment with heartier greens like kale, often called the king of greens. At first, add more fruit than vegetables (between 60-75%) and, over time, you can gradually reduce the fruit content, without even noticing the difference. Try the same approach with your children and you will be delighted at how easy it is to get more vegetables in their diet (for older children I suggest using an opaque container to start, so they are not discouraged by the green colour). You may feel more energetic, you may lose a little extra weight, you may feel clear-headed, or you may even sleep sounder, all things that many people who increase their

W

84

intake of raw foods have reported. For many, this approach may just be just what you are looking for, while others may notice an increasing desire to learn even more and take things a step higher, as the health benefits from eating 50% raw or more are substantial. Include a smoothie in the morning and a salad with lunch and dinner and you’re well on your way. In no time, you’ll notice that eating more raw foods isn’t extreme at all; in fact, it’s pretty much amazing - almost as if nature had intended it that way. Bio: Sarah Ives teaches easy and delicious ways to include more raw foods in your diet through her classes and consultations in the Ottawa region. Please visit www,ohmyraw. com to learn more about her upcoming class, Raw Breakfasts and Beyond, being held on September 24th, 2011.

Founder of the Sedona Intensive Albert Gaulden – Comes to Ottawa

By Emily Taylor-King t’s not every day that I have the right combination of trust, faith, hope and grounded-ness to blindly follow the whims of the universe to where it wants me to go, but every once in a while I really manage to get it right. Meeting Albert Gaulden was one of those times. At the end of 2008 I had achieved several long-term goals – I was about to graduate from Carleton’s Conflict Resolution program; I had finally finished an intensive reiki master training program; and I was about to move in with my long time sweetheart. Usually I don’t linger long enough by far on the satisfaction of a job well done, but for whatever reason, I decided that with all these things soon behind me, it was time to give myself a present. The best present I could think of was a trip to Sedona, Arizona and through a series of lucky (or perhaps fateful) events, I soon found myself on a plane to Sedona with a group of amazing women. Around the same time I happened to be reading Albert Gaulden’s book “You’re Not Who You Think You Are: A Breakthrough Guide to Discovering the Authentic You.” I had never heard of Albert before reading that book. I had ordered it from the library by chance and it came in with a dozen others that same week. But as soon as I’d read the first few pages I thought “I like this guy.” Albert writes the way he talks. You can almost hear his Alabama-born southern drawl right in the text. And he tells it like it is. He’s a no-nonsense guy, and talks openly about his own struggles, about being 30+ years sober, and about the dangers of living a life of illusion, and self-delusion. Founder of the Sedona Intensive program (sedonaintensive. com), he uses trans-personal psychology, astrology and good old intuition to help people transform and transcend the unhealthy patterns and addictions that hold them back, whatever form they may take. He has helped literally thousands of people to move past their blockages and into their full potential.

I

86

“This would be an interesting person to meet” I thought to myself, and turned to the author’s bio to see where he lived. Go figure. Sedona, Arizona. “Okay, universe, I hear you.” So I made an appointment, paid the fee, and paid Albert an hour-long visit. Albert could see things about me that even my closest friends couldn’t. We got along famously, and when I listen to the CD in retrospect I hear now how he foresaw many things with his unique blend of psychology, astrology and intuition – that my husband I would get married (check!), that we would move to a house we would not search for, it would find us (check!), that we would move in the fall (check!). But more than that, Albert simply saw the highest and the best in me, and was a master at helping me to see it too. He often says “I already think more highly of you than you do, because I know what you’re truly capable of.” So when I heard that Albert was coming to Toronto this past May, I was probably the first to sign up. And once we’d had our happy reunion I said, “Albert, you have to come to Ottawa!” And so he is – on October 21st he will deliver a lecture called “The Handwriting on the Wall: What do the Stars Have in Store for 2012?”, and on October 22nd he will lead a workshop based on his book “You’re Not Who You Think You Are.” He will also be available for private consultation on the 23rd and 24th. In anticipation, we’ve been choosing venues, designing, printing and hanging posters. Amid all this activity, I stopped to ask myself – why? Why help bring Albert to Ottawa? I’ve already discovered him, and can easily talk to him again myself. Why is it important to me to have him come here? And the answer is simple. Albert has a unique gift. He can see and bring out the best in people; help them to transcend through the difficult and into the divine. And to help bring him to others, to help him in helping others, is an act of service that I can be truly proud of. So give it some thought; if you’re ready to make a change for the better, if you’re not sure where to start, and if you’re wanting someone to help you do it, Albert Gaulden may just be the man for the job.


Keep the Humour in Healing! By Karen Munro-Caple, RMT “Can one be spiritual and silly at the same? It’s not necessary but it sure helps!”

W

hen we think of healing most people take it very seriously, which of course makes sense when it’s our health we are talking about, right? Sometimes it is that very seriousness that can hold us in the pattern of dis-ease. As a way to alter this pattern I like to incorporate humour in my massage therapy work as a way to assist in healing and to ease stressful situations.

I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for 10 years and a body worker for 10 years before that. I have seen plenty of ailing bodies over that time and there wasn’t one of them who did not benefit from a good laugh, especially if they were feeling anxious and in pain. Before I became a RMT I was in the film animation business for 20 years drawing and directing on animated shows that you may have grown up with like, “Scooby Doo”, “Inspector Gadget”, and “The Raccoons Series with Bert Raccoon and Cyril Sneer”. That background put me in good stead to be silly and see the world in a particularly funny way. I am interested in combining those elements into an 8 session course called, “Keep the Humour in Healing”. The course would be focused on two aspects at the same time. First would be to explore a variety of complimentary healing methods and secondly to find ways to see the lighter side of the healing. Some of the topics will be: • What kinds of body-work/massage are there out there? • What is mediation and how can I use it to heal myself? • What is energy work? • Can these healing methods fit with the medical model? There is so much information, so many forms of healing it’s hard to know where to begin. “Keep the Humour

September 2011

in Healing” is an opportunity to explore various healing forms, treatments, modalities and acquire an overview of what’s out there. I will be using my expertise in massage and Ortho-Bionomy to help shed light on other forms of healing. It will be a fun opportunity to get together with other like minded seekers to investigate new ideas and have a few laughs as we go. The schedule is: • 8 weeks, $80.00 per person • Wednesday, October 5, 2011 through to Wednesday, November 23, 2011, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm • Tea and light snacks served • Location is in the Meadowlands and Merivale area. Give me a call and book your space at 613-274-7342 Take a look at my RMT website to get a feel of how I work with healing. www.kmc-rmt.com Plus, check out my cartoon website so see “Adventures from Karen’s Clinic”, an amusing cartoon look at funny things that happen in a massage clinic. www. adventuresfromkarensclinic.com Karen Munro Caple, RMT, 613-274-7342
