Free Yourself from Consciousness Traps

14 February 2017 - 2:07pm

by Amâeil (Melinda Urban RIHR)
Healing with Divine heart to awaken the deep truth within.

Can we accept what’s happening in our world? Is it always about acceptance? The alternative is a gnashing of teeth, a wish-it-were-different refrain, an endless mental speculation on the uncertainty of things, or the blame-game – all reactions of fear focused outward. Yet, this is how many have been reacting to the disturbing deceptions and painful revelations surfacing through the US election and beyond. Shocked and angered, people ask, “How can this be?” It’s unsettling to realize that all of this is in our collective unconsciousness.

Many of us can feel this collective energy, but if we get caught in the mob mentality then our personal consciousness is governed by it. This now means that the controllers can steal our personal will and energy through the mind controlled matrix. It’s a consciousness trap of enslavement. Our sovereignty is our inner healing work and exercising our power of personal discernment. Through these choices we refuse to consent to the negative alien agenda (NAA). It’s up to each of us to direct our own energies because if we don’t someone or something else will.

In doing so the mind slides can begin to fall: programming that causes someone to ignore, deny or bypass an unapproved topic even when it is blatantly in front of them, such as the NAA, or the rampant satanic child sexual abuse on Earth.

Acceptance does not mean dismissing, denying nor condoning what is happening. It means neutrally observing through the higher perspective of our God-Self and being self-responsible. We are personally and collectively in the midst of the necessary dismantling. Only if we accept what is ‘now’ can we move forward to freedom.

2017 is urging “seize the opportunity!”. It begins within – what do you need to own?

Alert:  The Only Spiritual Care Now Permitted in Ontario is That Approved by the Minister of Health’s Psychotherapy College

7 February 2017 - 10:28pm

An Ontario prison services Chaplain of exemplary reputation released documents showing the level of distress he has suffered over the last two years at the hands of the Ministry’s newest henchmen. See evidence:

This is only one of thousands of cases where those who care about YOU and for YOU are abused at the hands of the Wynne government determined to end all competition to the medical-pharmaceutical drug industry.

Please note that our legal action to halt this government action is in danger of stalling as our funds are running low.  Let us not let apathy and fear prevent us from taking bold action in time…please contribute to our efforts at:

Here is what has happened (short recap)

The private pharmaceutical-front corporation called FHRCO (Federation of Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario,) with the blessing of the Minister of Health, has manipulated provincial legislation to allow psychologists and psychiatrists to unilaterally redefine all drugless health and wellness approaches as ‘psychotherapy’.

$8 million tax dollars were spent to set up the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) under false pretenses that for all intents and purposes is entirely directed by the FHRCO and international agents. Colleges do not provide education or training.

The College is not even waiting for the controlled act of psychotherapy to be proclaimed, as it works feverishly at putting some 10,000 valued, safe, authentic and cost-effective practitioners out of work in 2017.  It has unilaterally decided that spiritual care is now ‘psychotherapy’!

The College has admitted on video to harassing and distressing thousands of counselors, family therapists, marriage counsellors, Reiki practitioners, hypnotherapists, Reflexologists, spiritual care providers and energy treatment providers of all sorts, with threats that if they do not join the College now and pay the huge extortion fees, they would be prevented from working anywhere in Ontario later and could end up being ‘court test cases’.  They do not accept energy treatments as ‘coherent’.

Now we learn:

Spiritual care providers must disavow their preferred Christian beliefs and stop sharing their advice, knowledge and wisdom with those who seek it;

Spiritual and pastoral care providers must dissociate from at least 3 lawful and legal Christian associations if they wish to work once the controlled act of psychotherapy is proclaimed;

Professionals must write an act of contrition stating that the services they presently offer are ‘unethical’; and

Providers must succumb to ‘supervision’ of their Christian spiritual teachings for as long as 6 months and if they change their beliefs to that approved by the College, they might be permitted to join.  They must pay for this ‘supervision’;

Becoming a member of this College also means the member must give up their training, profession, diplomas, degrees and beliefs to provide services in the unscientific psychologically-based manner dictated by the College.

Organizations and agencies funded in part or in whole by the provincial government are now telling their employees that they MUST join the CRPO or lose their jobs, even though their employees have never remotely regarded themselves as engaged in psychotherapy.  Remember, psychotherapy was merely a dying psychological intervention until this scam made it a profession out of thin air and put it in control of all emotional, spiritual and mental healthcare.

We have discovered that this dictatorial behavior was deliberate to satisfy the requirements of the UN Agenda 21 and TISA Trade Deal provisions to globalize control of all healthcare in the hands of Big Pharma.

If you agree that our freedoms are worth fighting for, please contribute what you can at, where you can find links to Petitions, pre-formed letters and PayPal.

3 Things You Must Know Before You Hire a Hypnotist

6 February 2017 - 10:50pm

Number one, if you’re gonna spend your hard earned money on a hypnotist like someone at hypnosis Ottawa to help you, the first thing you must know is do they have experience? I mean have they been doing this for some time. See I have a secret to tell you and I probably shouldn’t tell you this because I could get in trouble with the other hypnotists. But much like the field of fitness that I used to work in also, to become a hypnotherapist, you could essentially become a hypnotherapist much like you can become a personal trainer in a weekend. I know, there isn’t many standards at the front of becoming a fitness professional unfortunately or a hypnotherapist. So, technically you could be a hypnotist after one weekend and drop in some expensive money to do that. However, if I’m a soldier who’s coming back from a war with perhaps PTSD who’s seen my best friend’s head blow up next to me and has bullets coming at my head and I’ve had to fire my gun at random people, am I going to want to work with somebody who’s perhaps only had training for a weekend in this art and science of hypnosis? Probably not!

So the first thing I’d ask is that your hypnotist whoever you hire has had at least five years of field research of working one on one with clients, not five years of study or five years of theory but five years minimum of working with people one on one.

The second thing I’d ask if I was to hire a hypnotist or a hypnotherapist is, have they worked with people with my problem? And have they had success with people with my problem? So if you’re going to a hypnotist and you want to quit smoking, has that hypnotist had success with helping people quit smoking? If you’re going to a hypnotist to lose weight, has that hypnotist had great results in helping people lose weight? Specifically, these are questions you must ask because it’s your money, it’s your time.

And the third thing you must ask, the third thing you must know before you hire any hypnotist whether its hypnosis Toronto or someone else is do they have proven results? And this is what I mean. I’ve been shocked recently by going on a bunch of hypnotists’ websites here in Canada and actually across the world and there’s a lot of nice words there but there’s hardly any testimonials. Now, so I’d ask, “Do they have testimonials of clients that they have worked with on the site?” That’s good. That’s good but let’s face it, it could also be faked as well. I’m not saying that some hypnotists would do that but it can be. But do they have some kind of proof, testimonials of people they’ve worked with? Written is okay. But I’m after their videos. Do they have videos of clients that they have worked with after the sessions who tell you about their experience with the hypnotist? Do they have those videos? And will they release and show you those videos before you commit to go and seeing them? That’s what I’d ask before I was hiring a hypnotist. And so many out there, there isn’t even one video of them working successfully with a client. So, I’d do that.

Those are the three things that must be in place if you really want to get a reputable, successful hypnotist with integrity.

I’m going to throw one more in there as a bonus. I did say three things before you hire a hypnotist. Well here’s the fourth one. Do you they have video evidence, video proof of actual sessions of actual change work they’ve done with clients from beginning to end? It’s very, very rare to find but if you do you know you’re in good hands.

See here at Lukenosis, you’ll notice there are tons, and tons, and tons, and tons of testimonials for every kind of problem imaginable and I always capture these continuing. Now, also I produce videos of real people that I work with. So, you can actually see some of the actual work I do from beginning to end. As unorthodox as it may be at times, but you can see with your own eyes the change, the results that people have and the kind of experience by watching it as a third party. And also, I’ve been doing this for 20 years now as a hypnotist all around the world: the UK, America, South America, and now in Canada.

So please, before you’re thinking about hiring a hypnotist…a hypnotherapist, do make sure that number one, they have more than five years of experience, real in the trenches field research one on one. Number two that they have worked and successfully helped clients overcome the problem that you’re coming in for. Three, they have testimonies, written okay, but video testimonials of people that they have worked with and you can see with your own eyes that it’s real. It’s not just the same person in multiple disguises. And the bonus one was four. Do they have proof? Do they have evidence, video of working from beginning to end with a client? So you can see that the client comes in with a problem and you can see they leave without the problem and watch some of the change processes there in video, is that there? Please make sure those things are in place before you actually hire a hypnotist.

The Spiritual Heart

6 February 2017 - 10:21pm

by Stewart

The Hridaya, the chakra of love, devotion and ultimate surrender, is known as the Spiritual Heart. The Hridaya chakra can control the energy of all of the other chakras and regulate the process of life through love. The Hridaya can only be entered through great love and devotion to spiritual life. It is the place where the soul resides, the cave of the heart (guha).

The bija Srim (sreem) is connected to the spiritual heart, the seat of the soul, and prosperity in life, “inner and outer”. Srim brings fullness and abundance to life, including the “vibration” of love.

om srim maha lakshmiyei svaha

Another name for the spiritual heart is hrit (meaning heart in Sanskrit). There are three regions of the hrit. The sun region within which is a white moon. Inside the moon is a fire region and inside this is a wish-granting tree known as kalpatura. This enchanting tree represents our ability to manifest our deepest soul’s desires. The kalpatura is often called the celestial wishing tree.

Hrit has its own lotus, called the anandakanda, meaning “root or bulb of bliss”. It has eight petals. The eight petals play a role in the tree’s enchantment. It is said when we wish with all sincerity upon this tree, the kalpatura grants even more than we ask for, providing us moksha, or freedom.

Envision a bird flying and landing on the tree. It tilts its head and listens to our hopes. When it has determined that we are ready to surrender our wishes, the bird (our soul), flies away carrying our wishes to God, who will honour our requests.

Feel gratitude in our open heart for the gift of this tree, which is always with us awaiting our wishes, the deepest yearnings of our soul.

Stewart is a Yoga teacher, and leads Sound Meditations and Kirtan at Wishingtree Yoga. Stewart and Rupa (Ivy) are co-founders of Wishingtree Yoga. Rupa has been practicing Yoga since 1996 in China. Her Chinese background and training gives her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom.

Hair Analysis

6 February 2017 - 10:08pm

We are all very toxic and very deficient in the correct nutrients in this day and age. Combine this with chemical reactions in the body not happening the way they should, and the body breaks down with weaknesses occurring. Take heart though, you can boost up the potential of your mind, body and spiritual development through Hair Analysis and Nutritional Balancing.

What Is Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis?

A personal Hair Mineral Analysis gives an overview of your psychology and body chemistry – along with determining exact combinations of nutrients needed to bring your body into balance and heal. Hair Mineral Analysis will show the toxic heavy metals are messing things up and need to be removed.

What Can Hair Analysis Reveal?

1. Lifestyle imbalances.  2. Dietary problems.   3. Metabolic typing. 4. Energy and vitality levels.  5. Gland and organ activity.  6. Carbohydrate tolerance.  7. Toxic metal assessment. 8. Reduced guesswork for recommendations of diet, nutritional supplementation and detoxification methods. 9. Shows trends or tendencies for over 60 common health conditions. (an amazing benefit – research indicates that many health conditions are related to tissue mineral imbalances months or years before they manifest in the body, making it a powerful preventive medical science which is less costly and more effective than waiting until a disease occurs.) 10. Hair Analysis will monitor progress. 11. Shows stress patterns. 12. Autonomic nervous system assessment. 13. Psychological/emotional assessment.(One the most exciting uses of the hair mineral analysis is the assessment of causes for conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, attention deficit, brain fog, autism, schizophrenia, dementia, violence, and bipolar disorder.  Hair mineral testing often shows why these conditions occur, and how to correct them at a deep level.) 14. Trauma. (Hair mineral testing can reveal sociological issues such as some traumas, abuse, and criminality.) 15. Animal health. (to identify and guide the correction of health problems in animals.)

What Is Nutritional Balancing?

Forty years of research by a brilliant nutrition analyst named Paul Eck broke this field wide open and gave us the Nutritional Balancing Science – a unique approach to nutrition which utilizes Hair Mineral Analysis to show a blueprint of body chemistry. Dr. Eck is not alive today, but his scientific breakthroughs are. This total healing system is based on your Hair Mineral Analysis and involves: Lifestyle changes, Detoxification, Diet and Supplementation.

Supplementation coupled with detoxification serves to resolve or improve a health condition but no matter how healthy you eat or take care of yourself, you CANNOT achieve true health unless you purge the heavy metals and chemicals from your body and properly mineralize. Nutritional Balancing is a means of reducing stress, balancing, strengthening and restoring body chemistry and when this is done, many health conditions improve by themselves. Boost the potential of your mind, body and spiritual development through Hair Analysis and Nutritional Balancing. It is a total healing system – a formula for anyone who is looking for improved health and wellness. email:

Climate Change in 2017

6 February 2017 - 9:08pm

Ian Prattis

As a Zen teacher I make a commitment not to cause harm. I am guided by spiritual ethics yet am aware that the current disastrous state of the planet will not bring forth strategic plans of how to fix things. The bottom line is to remember and refine a system of ethical conduct. So I go deeper and mainly fix myself to be steady and insightful. I register with mindfulness trainings to bring to the surface all that I would like to see in people around the planet.

Awakening and mindfulness are active. Activism on its own does not have the inner resources to bring about effective social and planetary transformation. I know from personal experience that retraining the wild mind is the necessary ingredient to precede activism. Stepping out on the environmental or political stage is only one part of the dance. It cannot be fully effective until the internal choreography is in place, the wild mind tamed. It will take smart discernment in order to step lightly on the planet. We have no alternative but to concentrate on sustainable living rather than greedily exploiting the spoils of perpetual economic growth. Profit cannot be the sole reason for commerce, there must be responsibility tied into the equation. At present, we are totally out of sync with the earth’s resources. The fragile threads of ecosystems around the globe are severely compromised. We are in the position of either going down the collective sewer or changing our values in the direction of awakening.

Jane Goodall issued a dire warning that “Life is Hanging by a Thread,” as all living things will be negatively impacted by rapid climate change. In particular she advocates the necessity of creating programs that stop tropical deforestation by placing rural communities as custodians of the forests. This is a tall order, as Donald Trump’s presidency has pulled the plug on a livable climate, dismantling environmental regulations and setting in motion irreversible consequences around the globe. The United States is now set on a course of ignoring climate change by obstructing clean energy and any form of conservation. The fox is already in the hen house and the 2015 Paris Climate Change Accord may be the first bird to die. Noam Chomsky refers to Trump’s priorities as “…racing as rapidly as possible to the destruction of organized human life.”

Stephen Hawking’s thoughtful piece in the Guardian (December 1, 2016) places a focus on elite behavior creating further inequality as he examines Brexit and the Trump presidency. His question is how will the elites change? He states, “We are living in a world of widening, not diminishing, financial inequality and people see only a slim chance at earning a living at all.” Hawking acknowledges this dangerous moment in humanity’s evolution. I note very little impetus of our species working together, whereas it is essential that elites learn the lessons of Brexit and Trump and retrain for a new world and not hang on grimly to their ill-gotten gains.

Our Planet Earth is like a giant living cell, whose parts are all linked in symbiosis. Biologist Thomas Lewis creates a metaphor of the Earth as a giant cell with humans just as one part of a vast system. This is not something that the elites and corporate moguls would pay much attention to.

Increase Your Kindness Levels

5 February 2017 - 9:26pm

Due to that fact that we all so busy and have many things to accomplish in an average day, it’s sometimes necessary to remind ourselves to take the time to be kind to others. Your kindness will often be paid back with more kindness that makes your life easier, so being nice to others has double benefits!

Here are some ways to increase your kindness levels:

Listen better. Of course, you have your own stuff on your mind. Maybe you’re mentally rehearsing your list of things to do or wondering how on earth you’ll complete a project at work by next week. However, learning to focus on whoever is speaking shows good etiquette and that you’re actually interested in what they have to say.

Slow down. The pace you’re keeping can cause you to overlook the feelings of others. Pushing your way through or rushing by others appears a wee bit harsh not to mention rude and unkind.

Take an extra moment to help another person. If you notice a person is struggling to carry their bags at the grocery, say, “Let me get you a cart” and then do it. You never know when, sometime in the near future, you might benefit from the kindness of a stranger yourself.

Commit to yourself to be kind to others. Each morning when you arise, remind yourself of your personal promise to treat others nicely. When you keep the topic of kindness in the forefront of your mind by promising yourself to be nicer to others, you’re more likely to practice it regularly.

Ponder kindness. When you occasionally reflect on what kindness means to you, you’ll be better able to practice the virtue in your daily life. Consider how closely patience and kindness are related: in order to be kind, you’ve likely got to be patient with others, no matter what else is going on in your own life.

Being kind to others is an easy quality to practice. It doesn’t take a lot of work or effort. However, if you apply the suggestions above, you’ll see yourself as one of the kindest people you’ve ever known. When you keep kindness in your heart, you attract it back like a shining beacon in the dark.

Opening Your Mind With Hypnotherapy

5 February 2017 - 9:22pm

When people have experienced particularly difficult events in their lives they can carry pain around as a constant reminder of the past. When you are unable to accept difficult events in your life you will not be able to move forward and live a happy and productive life. For many people, these events are kept at bay and they wear blinders to protect themselves from remembering or sharing difficult times and memories. Although they might even undergo therapy to help them overcome their past challenges they might still find it difficult to express the more traumatic events and therefore their therapy is less effective.

Discovering Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy gives you the chance to open your mind and reach into your deepest memories. When undergoing hypnotherapy services, Ottawa Counselling Services clients are truly able to get in touch with their selves and find freedom from their past. You will be able to finally open up and share the memories you have always wanted to remember but were subconsciously blocking. The beauty of hypnosis is that it does not allow a therapist to maintain control over your mind and force you to explore areas of your memory you are avoiding. Instead it acts as a guide to open your mind and discover the areas you wish to explore.

An Innovative Twist on Crowdfunding

5 February 2017 - 9:19pm

Introducing an Exciting New Fundraising Model for Health & Wellness Practitioners, Spiritual Entrepreneurs, Peace Builders, and Visionary Creators

We are living in a rapidly changing environment wherein the old ways of doing things no longer work. Depleting jobs, increased entrepreneurship, and the restraints imposed by financial, health and social systems, all call for creative ways to address humanity’s basic needs. Crowdfunding is to finance what Uber is to taxis. These innovative technologies help empower individuals by eliminating dependency on traditional systems. Crowdfunding/crowdsourcing has become a new way to meet global financial needs.

Donation crowdfunding is a means to fund a project by raising small amounts of donations from a large number of people. Of the several platforms on the market, Crowdfunding International (CFI) stands tall as a pioneering new model that uses a holistic approach.

The system is designed by embracing the positive elements from a number of successful business models and practices, and converting them to a Donation-based Crowdfunding platform. This ‘people-helping-people’ platform allows you to raise funds on a continual basis without any limitation or restriction, permitting you to move from one project to another uninterrupted.

In contrast to conventional crowdfunding models, with CFI there are NO ongoing fees and NO long exhaustive campaigns or pleading for money. The system allows members to support one another and equitably fund all projects, thereby CREATING A STRONG AND VIBRANT COMMUNITY. It acknowledges that each participant, as part of the whole community, contributes to the system (big or small) in their own unique way. Those who are attracted to this platform will recognize the program’s key inherent quality: by helping others fund their dream, I am funding mine as well.

In closing, the abundance mindset that is built into the Crowdfunding International system beautifully compliments our modern era of spiritual growth, and being all inclusive, also acknowledges the needs of the less fortunate. Reflecting these noble human ideals, a branch office has opened in Kenya in order to address the pressing needs of the African continent. In essence, the CFI platform is helping to transform lack (or poverty) consciousness into the energy of abundance, consistent with humanity’s ongoing journey of expanding consciousness.

Come and learn how a community of 40,000+ are transforming their lives with an innovative, new crowdfunding model. Please join us at 7pm Feb 18, Feb 22 or March 4 for a FREE info session. Limited seating. Reserve your space at

A New Wave of Spirit Communication

21 January 2017 - 11:29pm

Over the past several years there have been an increasing number of people who are becoming awakened to their own psychic and mediumistic abilities. During the past hundred years advances in spiritual sciences have really defined the differences between “psychic” reading and “mediumistic” reading. With many advancements in techniques of connecting with and communicating with Spirit there have been great lines drawn in the sand that have brought a great amount of duality and polarity to spiritual practice separating mediumship readings from psychic readings. Mediumship for many years was defined solely as the communication with departed human souls and then expanded again to include other types of divine beings whereas psychic reading was defined as the sensing of non-physical information often about events within the physical world. These classifications originated at a time where conventional sciences were making great advancements as well in the qualification and quantification of all different aspects of the physical world and so the pioneers in the spiritual, or transpersonal, arts and sciences began to adapt the same process of research. This was a necessary step in

beginning to understand the nature of Spirit at an academic, theoretical and philosophical level. The drawback here is that this categorization of different experiences of consciousness had left little room for a gray zone and it’s often the gray zone that holds the most potential. This lead to a false perception that bringing through people’s loved ones was somehow an elite extension of psychic phenomena. In reality the refinement of both skills are necessary for healing through message work as mediumship happens using our psychic senses and both styles of readings are truly one and the same as all is guided by Spirit.

The true nature of mediumship is not as supernatural as it is natural. We are innately divine and connected multidimensionally with all aspects of divinity around us. At a subconscious level we are in constant communication with the Source. The process of mediumship development is becoming consciously aware of this connection and asking questions that lead to an understanding of how you are already receiving divine communication. If we can understand the Source and the Spirit as aspects of our everyday physical lives, we can then understand that the spark of Source within all things is in constant communication with all other places that Source exists – within all dimensions.

The importance of developing psychically for the process of mediumship is to train our senses to interpret the communication that is already happening. The basis of providing a reading through mediumship is adding intention to receive and perceive on behalf of somebody else. Those born with a natural awareness of this process often have these experiences happening right from their younger years and for them the development of their natural gift can emerge more easily into the talent and skill of healing through the giving of messages from Spirit.

The most interesting thing about the last few years is that huge amounts of people are beginning to have profound experiences and at a global level this has created huge strives forward in this work. The amount of development that would go into the refining of spiritual gifts over a given length of time has reduced and people are able to open up with a lot less effort. There is no doubt that the world is beginning to change (again) and the process of ascension is shifting. In 2012, and the years leading up to it, people experienced huge physical, mental and emotional changes and people began talking about “symptoms of ascension” which were very characteristic changes that sensitive people were going through. The changes now are seen as energetic and people are easily sensing shifts and changes in the world’s energetic atmosphere. With that shift has come huge expansions of understanding as very high vibrational energy integrates into what has always been a very physically inclined world.

Throughout this shift the previous lines that were drawn between different types of experiences have become blurred allowing for more of a gray zone. What mediumship was classified as for many, many years is beginning to expand to include more than just communication with passed on loved ones steeped  in survival evidence (the details about somebody’s life on earth that prove that the human spirit survives death). We are rapidly accepting all types of divine expression that go towards the healing of humanity, both individually and collectively, as authentic spirit communication which is in turn yielding even more profound experiences of healing and oneness. The beautiful thing about this is that the more commonplace these phenomena become the more we can heal from them and the more that people can become awakened as all people, by our very human nature, are mediums.

Through the process of mediumship we are bringing heaven onto earth through our gifts and the service that we provide and with the beautiful expansions and advancements in human consciousness our earth is changing and with that change comes a new wave of healing as we awaken to the ever–expanding possibilities of Spirit.

Matthew Stapley is a legally ordained Spiritualist minister, lecturer and survival evidence psychic-medium in full time practice. He has been interviewed countless times in mainstream media outlets and was the past host of two television series. In addition to readings he teaches classes in mediumship development every Wednesday evening. He believes that all people are gifted.

How The Evolutionary Method Mastery Program Can Heal Your Body & Nourish Your Soul

Modern living has brought us a myriad of conveniences.  It’s also introduced more chemicals, toxins and unhealthy food than any other time in history.  To top it off, because of our convenienced, fast-past world, we’re also pretty stressed out.

But we don’t have to live with modern-world consequences and illnesses.  We can nurture our bodies and minds in ways that set us apart from the masses of stressed out, dis-eased sufferers.

As a body intuitive and seer, our work together zeros in on nutritional deficiencies and emotional turbulence so that they can be healed.  We work also with ancestral diet in order to bring your body and mind back to its default setting:  Vibrancy.

We were meant to thrive and live with freedom.  We were meant to eat certain macronutrients.  Our bodies want to move in a certain fashion.  In fact, they’re literally aching for it.

After two and a half million years our genetics became accustomed to eating wild game (and their organs), fish, seafood, plants (and lots of them), fruit and nuts and seeds.

According to Loren Cordain, PhD, a professor and author of The Paleo Diet, “Although evolution is an ongoing process for all living people, their genome is a result of past events in the generations of humans who came before them.  Only 330 human generations have come and gone since the development of agriculture. Before this time, all humans on the planet made their living as hunter-gatherers. Although a number of genetic changes have occurred since the agricultural revolution, the majority of the human genome has resulted from the environment of our hunter-gatherer ancestors and earlier.”

What does this mean for us?  Put simply, it means that our bodies and brains are not recognizing the foods that we’re putting into them.  An example of this would be refined sugar.

Our hunter-gatherer ancestors may have gotten handfuls of ‘sugar’ in the form wild blueberries or raspberries, when they were in season, a month or two out of the year.  We, on the other hand, eat sugar with most meals, and then in between meals.  Not only is this sugar a far cry from the wild berries that our ancestors consumed, but it’s highly refined, genetically modified and wrapped up in chemical-laden, food-like products.

Our genetically predisposed bodies can only handle so much foreign matter.  After a while, they’ll start to rebel.

To add to all of this, we live with non-stop distraction.  Our smart phones, tablets and even our watches have us jumping and hyper-responsive.  And we’re just not shutting down.

But there’s an upside to this…

When we give our bodies the foods that our ancestors survived on for millions of years (without pesticides or modification) than they begin to work really, really well again.  They thrive.  They think well.  They move better.  They look amazing.

Healthy bodies beget sound sleeps; sharper brains; happier emotions; a sense that we can do anything.

We can learn why some of us feel that we need distraction from ourselves and learn to get comfortable in our own skin again.  We can calm down, be with ourselves and love our own company.

If you feel like it’s time for a change; a new start; a healthy body; a relaxed and healed mind and soul; this program may be the fire-starter that unveils the you that’s been waiting to be expressed.

Remaining true to oneself can be a challenge. The idea that you are allowed, capable, or that it is more than a selfish expression is beyond the reach of many.  The view of what it means to be true to yourself is the part that, when shifted, allows the true meaning and understanding of how this is beneficial to all to come forth.

In the season of giving there is a focus on ensuring others are finding their happiness, while enjoying what is being offered to you.  The giving and receiving is highlighted.  Yet during the rest of the year, many find receiving beyond reach.  How many parents feel that they must put every need of the child and family before theirs?  This seems like the least selfish and most magnanimous way to be.  Showing you care so much for them you put yourself on the back burner.  Some people use this for their business as well.  The business is the focus of their giving and everything must go to that.  That all attention and energies be devoted to promoting and growing and working at their business… beyond themselves and sometimes beyond their families and everything else.  As we state this, some of you will see that this is not healthy, while others will say, “Yes this devotion is what’s needed to achieve the dreams and goals that I have.”  Different perspectives.

What we wish to offer for contemplation is the idea that in essence you’re already perfect.  Meaning the spirit, the soul, your true being has no need for validation. It has the full love of the Universe, and is part of love itself.  The shift in perception we mentioned at the beginning is recognizing that you don’t need to prove anything.  This simple understanding relieves so many things when applied to the troubles and traumas and dilemmas of life.

Your inner peace comes with recognizing there is nothing you need to be.  This helps you let go of all external influence, as you can tell yourself, “I am already loved, loving and part of love itself.  There is nothing I need to do to prove that.” If there is nothing that you need to prove, how would that change what you do? How you see others? What you would feel life is for?

And do you see, Dear Ones, that as you come to accept yourself in this loving way, the fear of being judged is not held valuable to you any longer? Express your joy and what feels right to you from a state of love.  As you release resistance to yourself, the resistances you encounter must also fade away.

What you offer comes from a place of loving acceptance instead of an obligation to the world. Finding balance will allow healthier ways for all.  Choosing a business and your focus with it from a state of enjoyment is inspired. Needing to be the best or earn the most or work the hardest to show that you are valuable is not necessary.  Let your joy be funnelled in to what you do.  Let your passion lead you.  You will more naturally find the balance in your life because it is what feels right to you.  It feels healthy; it feels good.

There is nothing you need to prove Dear Ones.  You are loving and you are loved completely.  Use this thought in your everyday to notice where you may be unconsciously coming from a sense of needing to prove.  Changing the underlying thought is an effective way of transforming your life into a healthy balance.

Be at peace in your hearts with yourself Dear Ones.  You are loved.

Tribute to Louis Richard Batzler

21 January 2017 - 9:23pm

I am honoured to respectfully share this tribute to Rev. Dr. Louis Richard Batzler  (1922-2016), who I contacted in 1980. Richard was a serene, selfless and considerate person, who cared and had love and compassion for others. He made a significant difference to my personal development during my transformative spiritual journey.

Richard was educated in the USA and received his MA and PhD degrees in History, and also graduated as an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. His ministry included many roles, such as a pastor of churches, chaplain in colleges, hospitals and hospices; teacher and counsellor; and, service roles in industry and federal government.

He was a Past President of two notable interfaith organizations: Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship International, and its academic affiliate – The Academy of Religion and Psychical Research. Richard was also the author of 11 books; a poet of  about 1,500 poems (published after 1995); and, a truth-oriented researcher who produced numerous journal articles, book reviews, and audio-cassettes which dealt mainly with the spiritual life, health/healing, suicide, death and grief. Obviously, Richard was a very busy man.

When I first contacted him, I was going through a very difficult spiritual journey, since I was having an intense and prolonged kundalini energy experience (1968-89). I desperately appealed for help to many clerics of different denominations and health professionals (psychologists and psychiatrists). Richard, however, was the only non-judgemental samaritan who listened to my plight and helped me to survive. He saved my life, and kindly treated me thereafter as his own son.    

In 1990, I created Spiritual Frontiers Canada (SFC), an open-minded educational forum to explore the frontiers of religion and science. Without Richard’s assistance, however, SFC would not have lasted for too long. SFC prospered because he fully supported my initiative, by sending me boxes and boxes of books/materials, which in turn contributed to SFC’s development, promotion and success. Richard travelled from North Carolina to Ottawa Ontario twice to present public talks/workshops to SFC members. He counselled me over the years about my research on “Truality”(, up to the remaining months of  his life. He also did all this without any thought of financial reward.

In addition to helping me create SFC,  Richard made a difference in that because of his thoughtful and sanguine advice, I was able to lead SFC successfully for about a dozen years. One indicator of the success involved was that during the 1990s, over 10,000 persons attended SFC public talks, workshops and socials in Ottawa. Presently, SFC is still active, (www.spiritual, and I continue to participate in its activities.

Relative to my personal passion for music, Richard also made another much-appreciated difference in restoring my self-confidence that still continues. Although I was trained as a classical piano-accordianist for ten years, my zeal to play music declined during the kundalini experience, Richard enthusiastically encouraged me however to share my music again. As a result, I returned to and still actively musically play my happy piano-accordian to lead singalongs with those in hospitals, nursing homes, senior citizen retirement residences, churches, synagogues, veterans’ groups, and various ethnic groups. Overall, I have been doing so for over sixty years in about a dozen countries.      

I feel that Rev. Batzler was, is, and always will be the most genuine spiritually-minded person I ever met.  In retrospect, I am still amazed that it did not matter to him what my religious background was, since he never asked me whether I was raised Catholic or Protestant. I am grateful that I was blessed by the Creator, who sent a remarkable angel in human form to be a role model of service to me when I most needed it.
