ENTHUSIASM THE ELIXIR OF LIFE by: Richard Haney My doctoral dissertation is about enthusiasm, a very exciting and previously under-explored topic. As a mental health professional, I am interested in the bright side of the emotional spectrum as well as the dark side. I am interested in potentialities, empowerment, and in what can be, as much as in the challenges and roadblocks confronting my clients, my friends and myself. By delving into enthusiasm at one end of the spectrum of emotions, a great deal can be learned about its opposites (depression, anxiety, etc.) at the other end of the spectrum. En-thusiasm means “in God” and the “eli” in elixir is an ancient word for God. Thus the title of my dissertation could be simply translated as “God: The God of Life.” In my re-search, I find that virtually every world religion, philosophy and psychology stresses the importance of “having something larger than oneself to identify with”. This larger energy is sometimes called “God”…and sometimes not. Most of these fields also stress the value of balancing this larger energy with one’s own image of one’s self. A person’s level of enthusiasm is commensurate with their ability to fuse and balance their basic Self with the environment around them. When perfect balance is achieved, the Buddhists call this state “walking on the razor’s edge”, and the Sufis call it “the omega point”…where heaven and earth meet. For the ancient Greeks, this state was symbolized by their myths of Dionysus and Demeter… the fully actualized and enthusiastic male and female. The ancient Greeks used wine in moderation and also the potion ergot (fermented barley or rye) to experience this state which they called “ekstasis” (now called ecstasy) which means “standing outside of oneself ” or no longer static but rather in an e-motive state. At the Temple of Eleusis near Athens many thousands of ancient pilgrims performed the sacred rituals called “The Mysteries of Eleusis”. The essence of these rituals was to experience being happy rather than “pursuing happiness”. The “pursuit” of happiness essentially kills any possibility of true happiness. Enthusiasm is in a state of presence…not in the future. Perhaps the profound explosion in the culture, architecture, arts, philosophy, etc. of ancient Greece was initiated and/or enhanced by celebrants from Eleusis???

hurtfullness or insensitivity in the relationship or in any given moment. Throughout history there have been periods of time and/or particular cultures in which enthusiasm has flourished. In addition to the ancient Greeks mentioned above, other examples include the Gnostics (from about 100 A.D. to 700 A.D.), the Alchemists (from about 100 A.D. to 1200 A.D.), the Troubadours (from about 700 A.D. to 1300 A.D.), the Sufis (from about 600 A.D. to the present) and the New Age movement of this present era. The commonality that seems to run through all of these cultures has been described as “the Golden Thread” which puts the emphasis on personal, sacred spiritual experience rather than on dogma and institutional regulation. The Church killed off and/or destroyed almost all of these cultures and replaced them by linear, hierarchical religious systems. In 1973 Candice B. Pert and Solomon Snyder discovered endorphins. An endorphin’s main function is to inhibit pain or, conversely, to stimulate pleasure. When a person is very enthusiastic their endorphin level is very high and they can often experience elation and/or mystical experience, etc. The immune system can sometimes translate an emotion like enthusiasm into a state of well-being. The immune system is triggered by the endorphins to “rise to the occasion”. Dr. Bernie Siegel, the author of “Love, Medicine and Miracles”, has coined the phrase “co-operative non-conformity” to describe the incredible type of enthusiasm exhibited by some exceptional “terminal” cancer patients. Many of these patients survive cancer because they can keep their enthusiasm running in tandem with their impending sense of doom and gloom. In a sense they are able to infuse their material world with their spiritual world. Enthusiasm may well be the long searched for elixir of life. Perhaps this is what the famous poet, Walt Whitman, was referring to when, in response to someone’s observation that he seemed as though he was almost always joyous, he said, “I am perennially joyous.” He used the word “perennially” because he had learned to channel his continuous, invisible enthusiasm and to time it and to display it only when “the season” was right or when the situation was “ripe” for it. When in relationship with others, he had successfully learned how to factor dysfunctional intensity out of his enthusiasm. I hope you follow your Bliss……

Enthusiasm is not a trait that we are born with. It can be initiated or developed. If one has lost it through bereavement or through life’s challenges and traumas, it can be resurrected. One of the pitfalls of enthusiasm occurs when it is transformed into a level of intensity that scares or hurts the receiver of the intensity. In the Dionysian myth, Semele, Dionysis’ earth mother asks Zeus, Dionysis’ god father, to show her his thunderbolt. Zeus warns her that she may not be able to withstand the intensity of his god-like enthusiasm. She refuses to heed his warning. She demands to see his thunderbolt. She is singed and turned to charcoal and goes down to hell. Dionysis symbolically goes down to Hades and works out a deal to save his mother with Persephone, the queen of Hades. The meaning of all this is that Dionysis cannot be whole or balance all of his emotions (earthly and heavenly) until he hones and fine tunes his intensity into a form of negotiated enthusiasm. One technique that a highly enthusiastic person can use to prevent the scorching of his or her friends and family with excessive intensity is to apply the image of an “intensity meter”. This is similar in concept to a Geiger counter that is used to measure radioactivity. The enthusiastic person needs to negotiate their energy level with the other person in order to mitigate any abrasiveness,

POSSIBILITIES An article by Lynne Cardinal

This opened a remarkable possibility, the one of being able to look at my mind, and remain objective. In itself it provided numerous options, one of them being that since I was behind my mind, I could choose my reactions, and in this way select which word or thought to nurture. Amongst the ancient Sanskrit texts that I studied, in the various schools of logics such as the Yoga Sûtras, also rested this very idea. We have a mind but we are more than this mind. Our deepest self is right behind this mind. There were many words to describe this deeper self, one of which was Drashtu. It is translated loosely as the “Seer”, the “Observer”, or even the “Witness-Self”. This deep perspective of being an Observer, to realize that our self, our very core essence, is free, calm and objective was crucial. It enables us to be detached from our thoughts and reactions. To choose thoughts and reactions that will have preferable outcomes. Perhaps we can draw a parallel here with the principles of Emotional Intelligence.

Emotional intelligence, as explained by Dr. Daniel Goleman, is having the ability to understand, use, and manage “Emotional self-control-- delaying gratification and stifling impulsiveness- underlies accomplishment of every sort” ― Daniel our own emotions in positive ways. This helps to relieve stress, Goleman, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome IQ challenges and resolve conflicts. But how to achieve this? I remember decades ago reading that we have the possibility to see things differently, from other perspectives. That what we understand or conclude isn’t necessarily accurate, complete, or true. I read that we all have the ability to take a step back, and gain a vision that is all inclusive. This would provide us with a more complete understanding of the various situations we encounter. I also understood that we can recognize that we “have” a mind. Since I “have” a mind, that means that there is within, at the heart of my being, a part of me that rests right behind this mind of mine. These were the wise thoughts of sages immemorial; it was their gift to us.

Uniting ancient traditions with contemporary wisdom, we realize that to take a step back from our own mind - some may call it our “ego-mind” – also enables us to understand each and everyone’s perspectives, to empathize. This provides us with a more complete understanding of others. This will also help us experience a deeply satisfying life and manage our emotional reactions.

If we’re not emmeshed in our mind, ideas, and conditionings, we can truly react from a deeper clearer more compassionate place. We live in a world of medias, of ideas, some of which generate passion or anger. It can be difficult to cope with this influx of perspectives, whether truthful or not. But cultivating a sense of this deeper more objective self creates balance, compassion, harmony. Maybe behind all opinions is a story, and much to understand. With a clear mind we can chose what will help us, and also be of help to humanity, in our decision. Living with awareness is one of the many possibilities we have. To live with awareness leads to compassion, and that is truly fulfilling. It can be achieved gradually with time, through reflections, the guidance of kind and skilled practitioners, and meditation.

ANCIENT WISDOM Author Dr. Ian Prattis Releases

During my career as an anthropologist I was fortunate to encounter many First Nation story tellers across North America: Dene, Hopi, Ojibwa, Algonquin, Inuit – to mention a few. Their poetic recounting of myths and history had a deep impact on how I thought and wrote. I would say that without poetry, cultures implode. Extraordinary indigenous medicine people enhanced my process of remembering the power of the poetic voice. Through their mentoring, I learned how to reconfigure my understanding of time, place and consciousness. I made a radical turn in the 1980’s to reconstruct anthropological methodology, as the poetic voice was always required for investigation of the cultural other. I felt that the language of the anthropologist could not represent the raw experience of other cultures therefore poetry was philosophically essential to the work of anthropology. I saw poetry as an uninterrupted process whereas field notes were not. I suggested to colleagues that the poetry of observation is what anthropologists are supposed to be doing. Anthropologists who commit themselves to poetry in order to say something different about field experience are the tricksters and shamans of the discipline. I have been described as much worse! The radicalization of the discipline and an evolution into a different kind of anthropology was required. A continuation of this perspective emerged several decades later when I brought out a personal volume of poetry in 2018 – Painting with Words, Poetry for a New Era. The poems were split into six parts, each with its own distinctive theme. The final part is dedicated to Ancient Wisdom where an epic poem awaits the reader’s attention. It was written when I accompanied two friends on the first leg of their cross Canada canoe expedition. My good friend, Keith Crowe, teamed up with me and a yellow canoe. I had never undertaken anything quite like this. This long poem about Ancient Wisdom was written during the canoe trip, under oil skins, during portages, while cooking in the rain and once when standing drenched and half clothed in a Quebec laundromat. My creation of this poem had a double focus. I wanted to leave a document about Canada’s wilderness for my grand-children, so they could be inspired by Mother Earth. When experience and inspiration sparked, I would shout out to Keith in the stern of the yellow canoe that I had to write. I would bring out the oil skin envelope stuffed with poems about the journey. I also wanted to weave in the Wisdom of the Elders, to speak about Canadian waterways from the reverence of First Nations, so that my grand-children would understand the meaning of rivers, forests and mountains. I choose to complete this story with a moment from the focus on Ancient Wisdom. It pulsates with the rhythm of the river and the spirit of nature of its ancient inhabitants. In this epic poem I criticize human greed and its destructive impulses that result in pollution, contamination and annihilation of the natural world. I am nostalgic for the ancient ways of the people who had held Mother Earth in sacred regard, so I take readers into the heart of nature’s Zen-like serenity, and sheer “thereness.” The reader is hurled at the same time onto the path of nature’s fury expressed through extreme weather conditions. In spite of being exposed to the merciless harshness of the elements, the poet – that is me - still smiles because I am a part of this world, just like a tree or a rock. I see Ancient Wisdom as the tabernacle of our collective memory, and I harvest these ancient energies and weave them into my own history. In the poetry volume of 2018 I took the reader through the immensities of joy and pain, through the infinite and the mysterious. I dissect the dissonance of the modern world with the scalpel of poetic musings and describe the interflow between the human soul and the spirit of Earth - paving a quest for spiritual evolution and higher meaning. I provide a poetic narrative of our basest attributes as a species, our greed and propensity toward a savage violence, as well as our ability to love beyond the telling power of words. Ancient Wisdom awakens the sense of the infinite within us, surging our hearts with the power of their message. I take a small portion of the epic in order to talk about The Forest. The connection between humans and nature is illustrated with a solitary tree and a man. In each other’s presence, their feelings of aloneness vanish.

FALL EDITION

The Forest Whisper of wind through pine needles. Shimmering aspens and soft poplars of the forest. Green – spring fresh green, a relief to the year round darkness of the spruce’s darker timbre and twin pronged sheaths. The river denies our passage so we walk through sheltered forests rather than meet our death by foolishness. We wander and find herbs, trilliums white in dense bush, hiding among the wild strawberries un-bodied with their rich red summer promise. Guardian trees, lichen laced, protest the spring violets pushing upwards. In the forest a great many entities of the earth and sky speak of before and what is to be. Clearings sunk into the earth await further visits. In the center of one clearing stood a single tall aspen lonely. Waiting for companionship, fragile in its aloneness, in her aloneness, in our aloneness. I stand within her circle this tree and I and for a brief moment, neither were alone.

WHAT DOES CHILD DEVELOPMENT & ALKALINE WATER HAVE IN COMMON?

• The excessive stress from uncertain student interactions and ever-present peer-pressure further exacerbate the condition of dehydration. It is apparent that the child is positioned such that it affects adversely his/her cognitive functions and overall physical, emotional and mental health, and by extension, greatly compromises learning ability and overall well-being. • Dehydration has been identified as one of the culprits in declining brain and emotional health. • High levels of stress and anxiety cause body hormones and neurotransmitters to work harder. • Stress uses up more vital resources that need water to keep functioning. Thus, by addressing the water-drinking component, one may mitigate the child’s dilemma and bring them into harmonious and balanced state.

Have you provided your child with the appropriate tools to excel in their upcoming academic year? Is your child one of the large sector of North American children suffering from chronic dehydration, culminating in less-than optimal brain health and compromised emotional and physiological functionality? If so, we provide a simple daily-need solution– Live water. It has the potential to improve your child’s emotional and mental health providing her/him with an opportunity to develop and academically perform to their fullest. Back-to-school timeframes pose interesting and unique challenges for both the parents and children under normal circumstances. However, in the Covid environment the situation has the added impact of changes made in the learning environment that adversely affect children’s learning ability and safety. The situation is acutely strained by the varying and sometimes conflicting information from different sources. Parents are thus faced with a unique challenge, balancing the safety and wellbeing of their children on the one hand and their learning and educational component on the other; both are key components in their children’s overall development and wellbeing. The cumulative stress and anxiety have the potential to damage both your child's physical health and their psychological wellbeing. Are you aware, the quality of food, beverages and water your child consumes impact your child’s learning abilities and overall well-being? In the school environment, the parent considers the child’s daily nutritional needs. Parents may resort to readily available and plentiful processed foods and refined grains, with their preservatives and often high sugar content. The childs’ thirst requirements, in theory, are met in beverages like juice and pop with a sugar content that disrupts the thirst mechanism, increases toxin levels in the body and furthers dehydration, thus compromising your child’s brain health. Furthermore, children with food allergies have high histamine levels and the medication, in general, and psychiatric drugs, in particular, used to deal with this and other medical conditions, suck water out of the brain reducing neurotransmitter functionality. Taking into consideration:

Our brains need a minimum quantity of clean, LIVE WATER to carry out normal functions. The amount of water required is a minimum of 1/2 to 1 oz of water per pound of body weight. If any shortcoming in water is not replaced immediately, its effect on functionality is accumulative, culminating in the body becoming increasingly out of balance. Children, generally, consume only small quantities of low-quality, fluoride-treated municipal water or bottled water – both of which exacerbate their dehydration and adversely impact mental acuity. Keeping your child hydrated with the right kind of Live Water is one of the simplest ways to maintain her/ his good health and prevent medical problems. In earlier articles, we explained: how hydration helps dissolve minerals in the brain, and facilitates the flow of energy resources to one’s brain; and how Kangen Water – a free-radical scavenger – eliminates acid overload and bad chemistry. Did you know that the quantity and quality of water – Live Water – your child consumes has the potential to alleviate dangers associated with dehydration and bring their body back into balance?

ALL WATER IS NOT CREATED EQUAL Most Canadians suffer from dehydration, unknown to them, and inflammation-related health problems.

Studies have shown that water from tap, mineral, spring, distilled, reverse osmosis, etc are substandard in quality. Our body is 70% water. Hence, it is essential that we consume “Live Water” for optimal health.

Live, micro-clustered water, that is electrically charged, electrolyte-reduced, hydrogen-enriched, hexagonal-structured, ionized, alkaline water fully hydrates the cells of the body. Water has become the most misunderstood and underappreciated nutrient in the world. It is one of the most important elements essential for optimum operation of children’s vital organs and systems, but most importantly, their brain. The brain is 80% water and runs the pituitary and hypothalamus glands that regulate one’s bodily functions. Back to school is a stressful yet exciting time for both child and parent. It gives the parent an opportunity to re-examine the child’s needs with a view to ensuring her/his optimal development and learning needs are met for their future and onward journey. Despite its quirks, the knowledge, skills and abilities gained through nurturing your child to their fullest potential is well worth the challenges. It provides an opportunity for your child to formulate his/her dream and become a free spirit in the playground of life. What better time than now to sieze the opportunity to help transform your child’s life as the saying goes: “Change Your Water and Change Your Life”! Given the important role the quality of water – LIVE WATER – plays in your child’s cognitive, emotional and physical wellbeing, and knowing the quality of water your child drinks is an essential first step on the road to their optimal intellectual, physical, emotional and mental health, if you curious to see what lurks in your child’s water, contact Pesi to give you an in-home, Live Presentation and FREE testing of your water quality.

The Practice of Allowing Truth by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapist & Ascension Healing Facilitator Awakening the Truth Within for Sacred, Inner Balance

When there is chaos in the outer fields it isn’t easy to hold centre. When there is curiosity in the heart and mind it’s much easier to move through the dross and the density. When there is Light in the core of the Lightbody, then there is a unity with Christ consciousness that supersedes all darkness and creates energy flow, through and above that which intercedes with harm. This is the time to come into practice with these three principles: to know them, understand them, apply them and experiment with them. In doing so, the discernment increases hundredfold. Meaning, if there is a way to train your Lightbody to know truth, and to discern truth, this would be it. So let’s examine each of them to understand what matters in each. When there is chaos in the outer field it isn’t easy to hold centre. This type of frequency is a magnet for more chaos. It creates a vortex of energy that will descend your energy into instability and fear. The first important step would be to recognize that this is happening! When it is, do not to try to push through it. If you do, you’re creating a battle. Instead, the idea is to recognize that chaos is afoot, to know that it’s not natural to be in this kind of energy. To do so is to say, “This isn’t what I choose to align with. It‘s not serving my highest expression, so I disengage.” This doesn’t mean to ignore it nor indulge it with drama. It means that you acknowledge it, focus, and then decide to observe it rather be in it and caught up in it. It also means to discern what this energy is. Where did it come from? When did it appear? What instigated this? This component is rather challenging at times because it’s in the nonphysical, subtle layers. So the discernment doesn’t require mental deliberating, but rather a connection through the heart and higher consciousness, the higher sensory perception, which is able to intuit and trace the causation or the origin with some precision. It’s not always easy if you’re triggered and have lost your inner balance. This is a practice, so don’t place a burden of expectation on yourself to be able to do this in an instant or the first time around. The underlying practice to this is stillness – to flow with your breath in ‘now’, breathing God in and out, so that Spirit is the leader of this exercise in discernment. You build this relationship with God-Within so that it’s more readily accessible in disruption. If the ego is the leader it will only pull in more chaos.

FALL EDITION

The third component is to accept what’s happening. This is perhaps the most difficult because people want to push through, struggle against it, blame somebody or something, try to immediately change it, get angry, and decide that they’ll triumph. This is all ego. Instead, acceptance is to understand that only your God-self is going to change what’s happening. This means surrendering to what is, in Universal trust and non-attachment, and then allowing God to do the work. It doesn’t mean you condone what is occurring or give away your power. On the contrary, ego has to step aside and let your God-Self take the reins and do the clearing. This acceptance is about allowing Divine will not asserting ego will. This then clarifies why negative ego clearing is so vitally important. Read the full article to align to your truth.

Unity’s Daily Word and Prayer Service

Unity believes that God (the Divine, the Source, etc.) is within, always present. For 125 years, Silent Unity (https://www.unity.org/prayer) has been publishing the Daily Word magazine to thousands of people worldwide. The messages and online prayers (http://www.dailyword.com/) are intended to uplift, reminding us of our divine nature, and opening us to the presence and power of God within. Unity Spiritual Centre Ottawa (USCO) invites you to enjoy a sample of a Daily Word message written by a prayer team member. In the words of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr: “Free at last, free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, I am free at last”. Many of us at one time or another have worn a mantle of shame and guilt. Deep within lies hidden beliefs and limitations that stealth fully call out for attention. “Don’t ask for that toy, you don’t deserve it.” “Don’t apply for that job, you aren’t smart enough.” You can’t go on that trip; you don’t have any money.” “You’re a terrible mother/father.” “You’ll never succeed – don’t even try.” “You are not an expert.” “Your opinion doesn’t count.” The lists of abuse, humiliation and limitations are endless. Our shame and guilt weigh us down, our bodies and minds become overwhelmed. At this low point, we begin to question, we receive helpful guidance, read books, take courses, go to counselling. We begin the long journey into the heart of who we are, reclaiming the truth of our being, our divine identity. We weed our inner garden of all the lies, the shame, the guilt, the distortions. We fertilize, water and tenderly oversee the new growth. In time, we smile, then laugh. The world becomes a magical playground of endless possibilities until one day, we look in the mirror and see beauty looking back at us and we realize we have come home. We have ascended into our I AM Presence. From The Gospel of Thomas: Lord Jesus replied, “When you rid yourself of guilt and shame and tear off your old rags and trample them beneath your feet like children, then you’ll see the Son of God who is the living God and you’ll never fear again.”

SPIRITUAL EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE By Tony Gyenis

The premiss of emotional intelligence rests on being able to be aware of one’s emotional state in any given moment. Mastering one’s emotional intelligence is achieved when emotions arising from any situation can be leveraged toward higher good and not detrimental actions that one regrets or must apologize for. Though simple to explain, it remains an art to practice. Achieving success within oneself can be attributed to knowing oneself from the inside out. When we connect with our inner peace and insight, we can understand the situations we are placed in are not permanent and are only created from our perceptions. In other words, taking a spiritual perspective to life enables one to see all events, situations, and outcomes of actions to be combination of perceptions, norms, experiences, and willingness to view our own needs as flexible. The depth to which one is willing to look within to balance that around them, the greater peace all elements that surrounds us, will bring. Emotional intelligence is achieved by no longer rushing to respond to conflict or needing to justify oneself to anyone. The mechanical reaction of being defensive is the opposite of the practice of emotional intelligence. Any response driven by needing to take a position against someone rather then the issue at hand is not within the parameters of emotional intelligence. If preparing the response to someone while they are sharing their response to your last question, is suggestive of not emotionally engaging in the discussion. Being right is not a goal in dialogue, rather the goal should be hearing the other party. Another way to achieve emotional intelligence is understanding what you wish to achieve in dialogue. If it is to share your opinion and not hear others, your emotional state will not expand from other’s knowledge. That is when it is known that the emotional rationalization for the engagement with others is merely to fuel yourself and to not for gain from others’ opinion. This same principal goes for clarity with others to why you bring the issue to them. One’s emotional intelligence can be challenged when we merely wish to talk about our problems and the discussion turns heated when others are given advice. If advice is not being sought, being clear to why the topic is raised. This is the act of practicing emotional intelligence as it sets the expectation clearly within conversation. If you wish to be more grounded with conversations try tapping into the spiritual side of yourself and bring the open, non-judgemental self to the space. Accepting the conversation at hand is a perception based on your past experiences and norms, may help level the reactions provided to others. Lastly, never under value the benefit of setting boundaries to what you are open to for discussion and what you would rather not discuss. Sometimes discussion of politics at gatherings is not the best and those around you will thank you for serving up the emotional intelligence as the main course.

If you’re a homeowner, I’m willing to offer light housework in exchange for a reduced rent. Please contact me at jenbernius@gmail.com Feel free to share this ad.

3 POEMS

Author Dr. Ian Prattis Releases

NATURE IGNORED The treads of boots leave prints in the snow, banked softly in the quietness of dark pines. Looking down from high the trees say nothing. Resting through winter, waiting for the Spring sap surge. The jagged boulder in the middle of the path, another kill-site for Winter, could easily upend us bringing death everywhere. Silence dominates our broken feathers. From blood in snow. The echo we cannot hear. No memory weaves our mind, static speaking over media chatter. Too busy counting the death of pandemic, while greenhouse gas infiltrates our lungs and thus we are broken. No voice beyond the senselessness of this COVID death just burning bodies in the frigid dark ripping open without a chance. No longer do we speak of seasons or notice the flight of geese. There is only death frozen in the forest. Without sense of the loss we blindly suffer and decline to pick up the phone. Locked down sterile humans, unable to procreate, have now become the myth. Everything else arounds us, stretching their own lives. Trees, rivers, rocks, oceans and mountains survive in our absence. The oceans are lost to our minds, as we ignore the language of whales calling. Unable to hear their range of symphony. Boot prints in the snow are all we left behind.

TOO LATE FOR REFUGE

DREAMS OF NIGHTMARES

We take refuge where there is no place that waits for flames to inflame logs yet keep us warm.

Dreams smooth then haunt the time between sleep and waking throughout our bones.

Leaving our breath to play in broken sanctuary so our oxygen is not used all at the same time. A young woman transpires to make her way, too stubborn to die behind barricades of fire. She wore a summer frock without shoes, dancing across the road, reflected in the window of the baker’s shop. Departing with two baguettes, the girl returns to sanctuary to breath and survive. Wise poets create magic - or so they think, when baguettes morph into space with red wine the color and taste of blood. Worlds bigger than ours tower over us with huge anger and yet a delicate fragility. They dwarf homo-sapiens left behind by stupidity, without knowing how trees cry about the travesty of barren oil sands and coal mines.

Huddled in dark clusters, feeding off ragged moments of fears and sorrows from long time ago. Yet here we are haunting our better selves in the desert tumbleweed with the worst of our actions. Sharing universal shards of memory breaking through greed and racism, screaming that our world is now different. With Black Lives Matter along with all lives reminding that we are better than vague clusters of nightmares. In a language of sighs and nods to be perfectly understood, the balmy evening hides moonlit stars, shimmering through tall pines from across the river. His hands shake like tall grass bending in the squall of rain. Thinking her fingertips were placed on the grave of his loved one. She hears every soft word he murmurs.

Trees have a different music. Their sophisticated internet creates majestic forests and fires with the epiphany of inter-connection, without corporate domination building the way of destruction. Cedar forests know what is not natural, to be without pain and desperation required by Mother Earth to soothe hurts beyond danger. A new tapestry evolves to welcome the rising up of mountains, forests and oceans and the return of water creatures. It masters the unthinkable haunted decline. All of them watch humanity, who consume without noticing that animals leave tracks in the mud.

Healing the Sounds of Trauma with the Divine Mother’s Tones by Amâeil, Energy Psychotherapist & Ascension Healing Facilitator Awakening the Truth Within for Sacred, Inner Balance

My sensitivity to sound is not an accident, nor a problem, but an extension of remembering my Divine nature. The first emanation of Creation is sound through the Holy Mother. Her magnetic tones are the life-giving expression of All That Is, in a collaborative exchange with her partner, the Holy Father, the guardian of light emanations. This is the basis for the Krystic architecture that being returned back to Earth. However, by now we know the story of the negative alien invasion. Our Divine Mother was desecrated long ago. Her body was attacked, inverted, beaten, raped, tortured, and forced to birth grotesque parasites, and become that which she was not. And so, therefore, were her pure sound frequencies. This is what’s been missing for us. In the same way that a child falls asleep to a mother’s gentle lullaby, in complete trust and safety, humanity longs to feel the comfort of the Divine Mother’s tones again. This is sacred to our heart and soul. What has replaced her magnetic tones is the artificial, inorganic and unnatural. These are the grating tones, the metallic, sharp, abrasive sounds, and the discordant frequencies that have distorted the elements of our planet: earth, fire, air and water, the very same that comprise our DNA. This is the disharmony from her absence. This is our pain. We hold many cellular memories of weaponized sound from abuses of power in conflicts and wars, and through black magic. It’s understandable that we can get triggered. Without the Divine Mother’s magnetic tones, there is imbalance with Divine Father’s light. Of course, his light has also been manipulated. This impacts every expression of Creation, for every creation on Earth holds the gender principles of both the feminine and masculine. The blueprint of Creation was made unnatural and the sound body separated from the lightbody. What this has meant for humanity is that the Diamond Sun body, the human form in its highest expression, could not be reclaimed, nor could the hierogamic union of feminine and masculine in sacred balance. Or so the negative alien forces had planned. They still would like to destroy the Divine Mother - they hate the feminine. They’re still desperately hoping that they will not lose the last vestiges of their demonic architecture as the lunar parasitic forces are purged and the satanic hierarchies dismantled.

parts are being reclaimed and reconnected into her wholeness to rebirth the Christos-Sophia in sacred balance, so too are her tones. The Sophianic plasma shields are plasma rings that are activating more of the vertical and diagonal channels running through the planetary grid and our lightbodies. So I deeply value that I can hear and feel the difference between Mother’s tones and inorganic frequencies. The natural sounds of the planet belong to our Divine Mother Earth and to our Divine Feminine Within. Thank you God for this healing and our return to the sounds of her peace!

MANAGING EMOTION by Laurie Fraser

When your children leave the nest or you go through a break-up, does it resonate with every other time in your life that you felt abandoned? Are you coping better each time it happens? Or worse? And so we’re back to that old image of the full glass. If your energy is chock-full of anxiety, the next visit to the dentist is going to put you over the top. If some of that old anxiety is removed, the dentist becomes much more manageable. A woman who I worked on telephoned to say, “I don’t yell at cars on the Queensway anymore. And I’m not holding anything back. It’s just not there. I just don’t feel angry.” Another client sent this email: “We had a session a year ago... I really have had positive life changes since then. Thank you for that. I don’t have night terrors anymore. I quit all drugs successfully.”

Emotions enrich our lives, but they are meant to come and go, always ebbing and flowing in a natural rhythm. Gibran wrote “Together joy and sorrow come and when one sits alone with you at your board remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.” Sometimes emotions get stuck, and we have trouble letting them go. For so many reasons, we hang on to our emotions: nostalgia, fear of change, enjoyment of secondary benefits (eg- sympathy, assistance, attention…) Sometimes getting stuck in an emotion saves us from looking at what’s under it. Or what’s next. Emotions are meant to pass through us. When they get stuck, it is usually in an organ or chakra. Generally, smokers are sad; drinkers are angry. That’s because sadness and grief get stuck in the lungs. Anger mostly gets stuck in the liver and the bladder (pissed off), but some anger settles into the digestive system. Anger shows up in the root chakra when it’s about money. I remove betrayal and despair from hearts quite often. Worry and overthinking tend to build up in the spleen. Fear finds a home in the kidneys. I once removed fear from the third eye of a person who had lost touch with their intuition. Examples:

There are many ways to remove emotions from our bodies. I do it energetically. You can do it by letting emotions flow through at the time they happen. This is a conscious choice. Joy moves and so does despair. Don’t let emotions stagnate in the body. They can cause illness. (How well do organs fight cancer when they’re burdened with emotion?) Emotion, especially when it’s flowing, is truly musical, adding a dimension to our lives that can be exquisite: the deepest love, the sweetest empathy… awe, inspiration… even the gulping tragedy of loss is exquisite when we allow ourselves to feel it, fully feel it, and then move on. _________________________________________ Laurie Fraser is a writer, seniors’ companion, and certified BOS practitioner. $90.00/session.

We call these our “triggers”, right? If a supervisor criticizes and your reaction is to feel like a 4-year-old, the experience is resonating with old emotions. If your only response is tears or paralysis, well, those old emotions are really interfering with your ability to keep the boss’s criticism in perspective.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT MONEY? by: Liz M Raymond

development work to justify raising my rates. Without a designation tagged on after my name, I didn’t believe I could ask for more than I was at the time. Understanding that life/work experience and self-directed learning was equally (if not sometimes more) valuable than a designation. I learned that when I beat out a C.A. student for a job where the firm wasn’t considering anyone that didn’t have or wasn’t working towards a designation. However, I applied anyway and was accepted because of my experience and wider knowledge of software.

Have you ever paid attention to how you feel when you receive money for your products or services?? How about how you feel when you spend money in your business including professional development?? That feeling, that my friend is your financial emotional intelligence! I had no clue what that was myself until someone told me how they write “Thank you” in the memo section of their cheques every time they pay a bill. That “feel good” feeling knowing they had money in the bank to cover that cheque opened the door to more money coming in! Up until that moment I hadn’t given it a second thought. So then I tried it. I made a conscious effort to say “Thanks” every time I paid a bill, It gave a whole new feeling to paying my bills. Admittedly it was a bit of a challenge those days where there was just enough, but I made sure I changed my perspective to “I just paid all my bills and I still got money in the bank.” Understanding what we feel about money and why is called “financial emotional intelligence”. It’s knowing what money means to us emotionally, so we can enjoy it and welcome it more into our lives. Money can be a tough topic to talk about. It was taboo to speak about in some families. If we grew up with shame for not having enough, or resentment towards those who did, our financial emotional intelligence can be suffering. I know mine did for a long time. I had my own challenges. My lack of self-worth showed up in the pricing in my business. I could brag about how great I was at what I did but I sure had trouble asking to get paid. It took me 8 years and some personal

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE A GIFT WORTH CULTIVATING by: The Dancing Motivator - Penny Lee Prevost

The definition of Emotional Intelligence is: the capacity to be aware of, control and express one’s emotions and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. In Nia it is one which you have with your own body. One of the most valuable lessons shared in Nia is to recognize our own body’s way. Our body is quite remarkable in all it can do. That includes the ability for emotions to move through the body with ease. At my “Backyard Dance Parties” in Russell over the summer program, I was thrilled when my new students recognized that certain body parts were speaking up or standing out with their increased body awareness. The real gift......over time students come to realize that their body is able to help them manage their emotions through movements. It is through recognizing that some emotions have gotten stuck causing discomfort in certain areas of the body. With awareness and focused attention we can help our own body heal from the discomfort. In our White Belt training to become a Livelihood member or Nia Technique teacher we learn from “The Voices of BODY, MIND EMOTION AND SPIRIT” for each of the 13 principles teaching us the art of sensation. The Voice.......to your emotions. 1 - Joy of movement: I offer a healing elixir, medicine for the heart and soul, life force. 2 - Natural time: I offer power, energy, texture, color, hue, energetic width, depth, and height. 3 - Sound: I trigger the release of expressive energy from deep within you. 4 - Freedance: I offer the ability to be real and to pretend, acting out all emotions. 5 - Awareness: I share an abundance of energy and power to enhance your self-expressive aware self. 6 - Base: I flood you with confidence. I love nothing more than the sensation of you stepping and standing firmly. 7 - Three planes: I offer different ways to experience the rise and fall of the many expressions of your unique being. 8 - Core: I offer an endless resource of expressed truth. 9 - Upper Extremities: I offer physical and visual channels for expressing what you feel. 10 - X-Ray Anatomy: I offer a safe haven for you to be still and quiet, for you to be aggressive and empowered. 11 - Creating a Sensory Life: I offer peace, harmony, tranquility, right order, and wholeness. 12 - Body + Life Transformation: I offer expansion for your many personalities and feelings. 13 - Living what you sense: I offer intimate body and self-knowing so you may share the gift of sensation with others Through your emotions, I offer you multidimensional energy faucets where feelings flow freely. Dive into my story of life and connect to each one of my many, colorful, and passionate personalities. They are available to you so that in the present, you will awaken to what you feel. Recognize your connection to words, thoughts, symbols, and information. Own what feelings are yours. Recognize your feelings without judgment, and notice which emotions are separate from yours. I am here to inspire you and help you access deeper levels of your own emotional experience. I am here to help you feel, in order to heal. Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open. ― B.K.S.

THE BODY KEEPS THE SCORE by: Richard Haney

Recently, I travelled to the Atlantic seashore and the Cape Cod Institute in Orleans, Massachusetts, to attend a one-week seminar on Brain-Body-Mind Neuroscience with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., who wrote the seminal and inspirational book, “The Body Keeps the Score”. The seminar was entitled the “Frontiers of Trauma Treatment”. One of the other books I read to prepare for this outstanding seminar was “The Body Remembers” by Babette Rothschild. As the titles of these books indicate, modern neuroscience has shown that our ways of navigating our journey through our days is highly influenced by the programs that were down-loaded into our physiology and our psyche when we were young. The seminar focused on how our programs can be re-experienced and “written over” by a healing relationship. Hippocrates called this type of relationship “Partners in Healing”.

attuned to detecting unsafe situations. The amygdala acts like a “smoke detector” and modulates and “interocepts” the incoming stimuli. In PTSD cases the amygdala malfunctions. The characteristic that Dr. van der Kolk highlighted as one of the most significant in his research studies was reciprocity. Reciprocity happens when two people are emotionally available for each other and are each TOTALLY HERE! Self-ownership creates deep connectivity. Richard M.

All of these modalities emphasize the importance of BEING HERE….. No mention of time. Not here “and now”. In experiential work we actually leave time. The focus then becomes what is most relevant for us. In this state we prioritize all of our different emotions.

WHAT DO DEPRESSION & ALKALINE WATER HAVE IN COMMON?

Thus, by addressing the water-drinking component, one may mitigate a depressed person/ family’s dilemma and return them to a harmonious and balanced state. Our brains need a minimum quantity of clean, LIVE WATER to carry out normal functions. The amount of water required is 1 oz of water per pound of body weight. If any shortcoming in water is not replaced immediately, its effect on functionality is cumulative, culminating in the body becoming increasingly out of balance. A family, generally consumes only small quantities of low-quality, fluoride-treated municipal water or bottled water – both of which exacerbate their dehydration and adversely impact mental acuity. In earlier articles, we explained: how hydration helps dissolve minerals in the brain, and facilitates the flow of energy resources to one’s brain; and how Kangen Water – a free-radical scavenger – eliminates acid overload and bad chemistry.

• Do you suffer from feelings of despair and hopelessness, detachment from life and

the people around you? • Do you experience frequent headaches or stomach upsets, crying for no apparent reason, loss of appetite, change in sleep patterns or having negative thoughts such as suicide? • Are you unable to concentrate or make decisions? If so, your brain health may be compromised. We can offer a simple solution to this:

Live water Live water has the potential to eliminate the above symptoms and improve the brain health of you and your family, allowing you to perform your fullest. Given the enormity of mental health, this article focuses on depression as one of the most common brain conditions. Depression affects a large segment of the population and compromises their brain health. Many people become temporarily low when things don't seem to be going well. These feelings are a normal part of life. Depression is a clinical term used by psychiatrists to define when a person feels worthless and hopeless. It may affect the way they think and behave and may have an adverse physical impact as well. Depression can be short or long term, seasonal or hormonal, or change related. When the time frame of this condition exceeds two months, then it is defined as a major depression. The causes of depression can be many and varied and may include death, illness of a spouse, friend or family member, difficulties at work or with a personal relationship, low self-esteem, or financial difficulties. It affects people of all ages, education, income levels, and cultures. However, systemic inequalities such as racism, homelessness, poverty, discrimination, colonial and gender-based violence, among others, can worsen the depression. When a person is suffering from depression it poses interesting and unique challenges for family members as well as care givers, under normal circumstances. However, in the current pandemic environment, constant and repetitive fear-based information/ misinformation, and the uncertainty associated with the future generates stress for all. The situation is acutely strained by the varying and sometimes conflicting information from different sources. Caregivers are thus faced with a unique challenge of balancing the safety and wellbeing of the ‘depressed person’ (here-in-after referred to as ‘patient’) as well as their own in a constant and rapidly changing environment. An imbalanced approach has the potential to generate additional stressors in an already overstressed environment, which exacerbate dehydration due to the additional adrenal burden. Family’s nutritional needs, by way of food and beverages, are found in readily available and plentiful processed foods, with their high sugar content and preservatives. When thirst requirements are met mainly through beverages like juice and pop, where sugar content disrupts the thirst mechanism, increases toxin levels in the body and furthers dehydration, the brain health is further compromised. Notwithstanding, a family with food allergies has high histamine levels and the medication and psychiatric drugs used to deal with this and other medical conditions suck water out of the brain, reducing neurotransmitter functionality. It should be noted that 70% of Canadians suffer from dehydration, a major segment of which is reflected in the quality and quantity of food and beverages they consume. • Dehydration has been identified as one of the culprits in declining brain and emotional health. • High levels of stress and anxiety cause body hormones and neurotransmitters to work harder. • Stress uses up more vital resources that need water to keep functioning.

Did you know that the quantity and quality of water – Live Water – the family consumes has the potential to alleviate dangers associated with dehydration and bring their body back into balance? Live, micro-clustered water, that is electrically charged, electrolyte-reduced, hydrogen-enriched, hexagonal-structured, ionized, alkaline water fully hydrates the cells of the body and allows nutrients to be readily absorbed in the cells.

Water has become the most misunderstood and underappreciated nutrient in the world. It is one of the most important elements essential for optimum operation of vital organs and systems, but most importantly, the brain. The brain is 80% water and runs the pituitary and hypothalamus glands that regulate one’s bodily functions. Even mild dehydration (1-2% reduction of water in the brain) can have a significant negative impact on your mood, energy level, and even your ability to concentrate or think clearly. What better time than now to seize the opportunity to help transform you and your family’s life as the saying goes: “Change Your Water and Change Your Life”! Given the important role the quality of water – LIVE WATER – plays in you and your family’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, and knowing the quality of water they drink is an essential first step on the road to their optimal mental, physical and emotional health.

MUSCLE TESTING WORKSHOPS. by Laurie Fraser

regular energy healing sessions which determined many contributors to the illness. It addressed a mean bacteria, that’s for sure, but also deep grief and old events. It brought immediate pain relief. To my doctor’s astonishment, I was on antibiotics for a year, not the predicted two. I had been receiving energy healing treatments for a couple of years before it occurred to me to ask, “What is this energy that is communicated with? It’s intelligent. It knows me better than me. Is it my soul? Higher Self? God? Universal energy? And why do I ask only health-related questions?” At the end of my next session, instead of asking about supplements as usual, I gave my practitioner a list of a hundred archetypes and asked which ones were mine. He muscled-tested eleven positives and I went home and studied them, their lessons, their effect on my life. I began to ask questions like: “Is it in my highest good to take job A or B? Is in my highest good to be in contact with this person? Is it my highest good to learn Qigong, get a dog, pursue this relationship, change careers, paint the bathroom?”

I hate shopping. By the time I got around to buying my dehumidifier, it had been on a to-do list for months. As I walked up an entire aisle of dehumidifier choices in a big box store, I could hear an older couple discussing square feet, hose vs. bucket, cost and size. Their conversation petered as they watched me rub my index finger and thumb together in front of each brand. The box that “tested yes” for me was middle of the line in size and price. I loaded it on a cart and walked away. The woman shook herself and called after me: “Did you do some research on these?” I grinned and shrugged, “No, just muscle-testing.” The dehumidifier has worked out perfectly. Our energy comes into contact with other energies constantly, a million times a day. Why do you feel wonderful after meeting some people and depleted after even a brief exchange with others? Certainly all living things are imbued with different energies (or frequencies). When you pick up a pear, it has a different effect on your energy than a cigarette. Even an organic pear will test stronger than a non-organic pear. As it comes into your energy field it will either strengthen it or weaken it. If you could read that effect, you could make an informed choice before buying or eating. More and more people with allergies energetically test their foods. As I walk along in the grocery store, I rub my index finger and thumb together. When they “stick” (or test yes), I put the food in my basket. It’s a simple test in a restaurant where the server can’t know all the ingredients. I test the items listed on the menu (I don’t need the food to be right in front of me) and then order with confidence. All energy healing depends on communication between the practitioner and the client’s energy. This is done by intuition or muscle-testing or both. I use muscle-testing which is quick, easy and infallible. Muscle-testing takes me through a series of menus and sub-menus, finally ending at a specific procedure (I know many and when I learn something new, it is added to my menu - or list of available healing options with me). And so, any procedure I do on a client, has been requested by their energy. It is never a decision made by me. And so a client’s uncomfortable symptom will be treated the way his/her energy requests by leading me through menus and submenus until I reach the healing modality that will work. (Because what is that energy that fills and surrounds your body? That energy that never dies? That communicates easily and knows all the answers? Whatever you call it, it is very intelligent and knows you implicitly.) It’s fascinating. As I gain experience, I am stunned to see how many of our physical woes are caused by emotional energetic blocks. For example, when I “lock in” (or address) a problem like herpes, I am led by the person’s energy to many causes: a virus, a depleted root chakra, a fear of love, and a bad break up fifteen years ago. All of these causes can be cleared energetically. (Heal the energy first and it will lead the body to health). I’ve addressed heavy menstrual flow and gone to a healing menopausal procedure. But the cause of the disturbed hormones and glands has always been emotional: a miscarriage, adolescent experiences, a fear of losing control, coming from a line of women who were unable to cry and so bled instead. All of these things can be cleared energetically and the symptom alleviated. I have successfully addressed all sorts of pathogens, diseases, pain, allergies, infertility, emotional and spiritual issues, fears, insomnia, depression, anxiety, past life issues (a behaviour pattern or physical symptom is related to a past life trauma) and much more. When I had lyme disease (notice the past tense) and the doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me after 15 months of specialists and almost unbearable symptoms, it was a B.O.S. practitioner who tossed a lyme filter on me, muscle-tested, and said, “You should ask for a lyme test.” (A filter has the frequency of, in this case, lyme bacteria, in it, and it will either muscle test positively or not- resonating with bacteria in the body, or not. No different than a pear.) My medical treatment (antibiotics) lasted over a year, but included

FALL EDITION

But I was dependent on my healer for answers and saw him only once a week. When I learned muscle-testing myself, my life changed once more. I am in constant communication with my energy. My guidance is always with me, but I’ve learned not to be overly dependent on muscle-testing. My intuition has developed and my confidence in intuition and clairvoyance has grown as I verify by muscle-testing. That doesn’t mean life got easy. What is in my highest good, is not necessarily the easiest route. But even on the narrow path, I have constant communication and support. And I’ve learned that I’m always fine and the best thing for me, always happens. I have learned how deeply I am loved; the importance of my every thought, word, and act; the impact decisions have on my health, energy, joy and progress. Absolutely anyone can learn the simple skill of muscle-testing regardless of age, belief-system, or state of health. I believe it should be taught at school, along with reading and writing. MUSCLE-TESTING WORKSHOPS: Two to four people, three hours, $65.00 each Get together a group of friends and enjoy a fun afternoon filled with healthy snacks, practical exercises, clear effective small-group learning, and practice activities for home too. Everyone leaves knowing this skill. I have taught it to children.

FINDING YOUR SACRED FLOW by Caroline Chapman

try? Our body is oh-so-wise. Our body knows what it needs in any given moment, but we need to listen. Of course, if you practice yoga or other mindful modalities then this is not a new concept, but how often do you listen and act upon that guidance? Even as a trained yoga teacher and Nia instructor, I have been known to hear my body’s wisdom and yet not act upon it’s wise counsel only to regret it later! Ever heard that saying...Listen to the whispers of your body, so that you don’t have to hear it scream? My Sacred Flow is found through my personal practice of Nia. “Through Movement We Find Health”. This is Nia’s philosophy. Moving our body, in mindful ways, listening to it’s unique language, expressed through sensation in the body. Unique to each one of us. Quite literally, Moving to Heal our body and mind is a simple but profound concept.

I, Penny Lee Prevost - The Dancing Motivator met this wise lady at my first Nia Jam 6 years ago. Finding your Sacred Flow by Caroline Chapman Balance. It’s so often elusive to us and yet it’s so important for our wellbeing. Self-care is no longer considered a luxury. Taking care of our bodies and minds are vital. Mental health and physical health go hand in hand and there is no denying that this is a Practice. So, what makes YOU feel alive? What makes your heart sing? What makes you feel in a state of flow with the world around you? And are you getting enough of it? As unique beings we all have different rhythms and different things that help us feel connected to something greater than ourselves. A connection to the Sacred. Now more than ever it feels vital that we make time for this sacred activity, whatever it may be for us, to maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. Whatever our beliefs, we all want to be healthy and happy, right? For me, scheduling Sacred Flow into my calendar, is the daily reminder I need. Life is busy. I run my own small business and there is always something to do. However, taking time for me, and my body and mind is non-negotiable. Or at least it should be...and is, most days...I am human after all!

Over recent years, there has been much discussion and research on how dance can have a positive effect on the mind and mental health. It’s not just fun, it’s incredibly healing on a deep level. Dancing to lift your spirits can be as simple as playing some music that you love and move your body to the music. You don’t even need to call it dance, if that word scares you...and often it does! Let that word go. Your body loves rhythm... just put on some music with a good beat and notice how your body instinctively wants to move...it’s in our DNA! Of course, depression itself can be a disabling mental illness with feelings of sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities along with problems regulating emotions. Movement, or dance has the power to assist that healing. Music is powerful and can have an impact on our physical body and the brain and in short, has the power to increase our levels of happiness and change our mood. I invite you to discover your sacred flow through movement. Caroline Chapman - Nia Instructor Owner of Green Spirit see Purple Pages Directory "Thinking of You" category.
