Keynote Speaker (Friday Evening), Naturalist Artist Robert Bateman has become a noted spokesperson for the environment, specifically wildlife.  He was featured in How the Song Birds Are Disappearing,  a 14 minute CBC segment, introduced by Peter Mansbridge, October 31, 2007.  Some of what this segment told us is:

  • The North American skies are a lot quieter than they were a century ago.   Birds are disappearing from the Canadian landscape.  There should be a lot more swallows, hundreds of them.  Robert Bateman started birding when he was 12.  His first sketches were of birds.  When he was 8 years old, he would go to sleep to the song of the Whip-poor-will.  He has not heard their song in decades.
  • Tens of millions of the most common birds found in North America have disappeared.  Species have plunged by 60, 70, 80%.  Hardest hits are the grassland bird, sparrows, birds that next in Canada's forests, wetland birds.  The birds are disappearing due to enormous environmental disruptions.  The bobwhite, for example -- we used to have 31 million.  Now there are only 5 1/2 million.
  • Fabulous Speakers on the POLITICS OF HEALTH --
    Please endeavor to do your best to hear these excellent integrous speakers,
    the issues, the positions, the facts.
    At the very least, educate yourself with regard to what they are speaking about, and why.
    Your health, your life, depends on it.  You depend on you.

    MAY  19 (Monthly Meeting) - Visit #5 !*!*!*!*!*!
    May 21,22, 23, 24 (Workshops)
    Dr. Robert J. Gilbert, Asheville, North Carolina   www.vesica.org

        For an  UNPRECEDENTED  FIFTH!!!  Visit, Dr. Robert J. Gilbert shall come to speak to us May 19, 2009.  This is the THIRD TUESDAY evening of the month.

    Tuesday, May 19 meeting:  "Spiritual: Initiation, Discernment, and Dowsing, Healing Through Vibrations" (Title to be confirmed)

    Due to Dr. Gilbert's heavier than usual teaching load at the Vesica Institute for Holistic Studies in Asheville, North Carolina (see the Calendar and course descriptions on his website WOW!), we were unable to get an article for this issue.  Disappointing, but its okay, isn't it?  I'm still kvelling over his astounding article in last month's issue, dealing with The Mind of God, e.g.:  "To understand who we really are as spiritual beings, and what our true potential is, we start at the beginning: the Mind of God.  ....  PART ONE: THE MIND OF GOD CREATES LIVING BEINGS  ...  1.  The foundation of all Creation is the Mind of God.  This is the Consciousness Field which contains everything within it -- it is the fundamental key to both Metaphysics and Quantum Physics....".  If you were hoping for an article from him, go back and re read last month's article -- it is definitely worth it -- and/or there are probably about a dozen articles in our newsletter online and offline archives that Robert has written for us in advance of his visits here for 4 years -- and that would do us good to re read probably a jillion times.
    In lieu of the article from Robert, please see the information just below, about Rivers Sterling, Robert's colleague, friend and co-presenter and the sections she is going to lecture on, etc.,  at his presentation and workshops.
    I like brainy people.  Of all the people I know personally at this time, Robert Gilbert is probably the most brilliant.  He is also a truly humble, modest, kind and gentle person.  I say this for those of you who do not know him -- yet.   If you have never heard him speak -- you absolutely must -- at least come to the meeting.  (We do have CDs from 2 of his meeting presentations in the past.  The 2007 one is my fave.)   Robert does like us, with good cause, thank goodness.   And we remain only one of 2 places that he continues to travel to.

    You could listen to Robert talk about how he ties his shoes  -- if he were to do so -- and come away changed.  Its a transference of energy that takes place when you are near the energy field of someone with a very high vibration.  There is something uplifting just by being in his presence, similar to being with great masters -- as he must have been in former lives.

    May 21 - 24:   Robert is offering 2 workshops.  Descriptions and informational and registration flyers have been included in our last 2 newsletters and their mailings.  A flyer is included with this issue as well.  You can still register for the workshops, so far we are about a third full.

    This unique course will combine little-known principles of spiritual discernment from the Rosicrucian tradition, with practical mental and vibrational dowsing exercises which develop insight into invisible spiritual worlds. The practices not only develop new spiritual organs of perception inside of us, they also allow us to clearly differentiate the spiritual beings which influence our lives (including our health and illness issues.)

       A Brief but Refreshing and 
    Enlightening Dip with 
    the Many Rivers

    Where:   Barbara Frum Library Auditorium, 20 Covington (Bathurst & Lawrence: 1 street North and 1 street West)
    Time:      There shall be one afternoon and one evening session.   Times TBA
    Cost:      Minimal.  TBA
    Topics:    A selection of topics, that we can chose from:  See next month's issue

        RIVERS STERLING, Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM):  With her multi faceted background, training and experience combined with deep intuition, perceptiveness, intelligence and insights in Western, Eastern, Traditional and Spiritual healing methodologies, Rivers has an understanding of health, healing and the human body that enables her to discern and explain the actual pathways of the body and how things work as a whole -- together -- and influence each other -- rather than operating as independent body parts.

        She will give us a listing of topics that we can choose from, and/or address questions the audience may have on their own or from the weekend workshop and/or topics that she has prepared for us.

        With a Diploma of Proficiency in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, Rivers Sterling, colleague and friend of Dr. Gilbert, shall be assisting him at the presentation and the workshops and shall teach some of both courses as follows:

         -  For the Thurs/Fri Spiritual  Dowsing course:    Rivers will speak about her work in dowsing  different spiritual beings and their effects on the health (or  illness) of her clients.  She will also discuss her  new work in  identifying aspects of the human spiritual bodies which are where  certain health  problems "hide" or are anchored, and which can be  directly cleared.  She will also discuss her practical use of some of  the protocols and concepts Robert will be introducing in that course.

        -  For  the Sat/Sun Vibrational  Dowsing weekend course:    Rivers will discuss  her breakthrough work in collecting and analyzing a wide range of  Medical and Holistic Detox protocols: Very new methods to clear heavy  metals, viruses, chemical toxins and solvents, vaccine residues, etc.  from the human body for dramatic health effects.  She will discuss  which specific detox products (ranging from medical internal chelating  agents to MMS) clear which specific problems in the body, which is  again new work she has done.  She will also present her research into  dowsing the 'detox pathways' of the body which MUST be open before  anyone attempts to detoxify, and the specific substances she has found  to open up any closed detox pathways in the body.   She will also demo practical methods to apply light and sound to  energy centers of the body, how these can help clear certain toxic  problems ranging from toxic earth energies or EMF in the body, etc.

         Rivers has background, training and experience with: Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine, Craniosacral, Wilderness Survival, Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Oncology/Virology, Hydrotherapy/Homeopathy, Obstetrics, Emergency Medicine, .Shamanic Training, Tai Chi/ Qi Gong, Advanced Energy Explorations, Sacred Geometry, Egyptian Cosmology, & Esoteric Christian Mysticism, BioGeometry, Physiology of Toxicology, Liniments, Moxa & Cupping, Soul Retrieval: Alchemy for the Heart, Sound Restructuring, and more...much MUCH more.  Oh my!  www.deepenergymedicine.org/

    ASD Convention:   August 2009, Vermont --- about 465 miles from Toronto

    You've heard lots about the ASD Conventions.  That's where we met:  Bruce Irwin, Robert Gilbert, Joey Korn, Ellie Drew, Ivan McBeth, Pierre Noreau, Mary Hardy, Alan Handelsman, David Yarrow and others.  So do consider going this year and making some fine connections for yourself.  Its real easy to get to talk to some of these speakers.  Also, August is one of the best times of the year to be in Vermont --  the Green Mountains are ache-ingly lush during this time.  Russell Targ (Remote Viewer) shall be the keynote speaker.
    If you go to our YouTube channel at:  YouTube.com/Dowsers.info and see the videos there from the ASD you can get an idea of what the sales area looks like.  In fact, there are several Toronto Dowsers mingling around in the backgrounds!  Also, our own Alicja Aratyn is always a welcome face at convention!

    Costs:  I don't have current costs yet.  They are not yet available.  These are the 2008 costs:
    CONVENTION:   Last year, the convention itself, for a member cost $180.   This does not include pre or post convention workshops, which are reasonably priced.   It does include 3 days of presentations -- 4 time slots / day, 4-6 choices per time slot, and evening activities such as the keynote presentation.
    LODGING:   3 of us shared a 2 bedroom condo which cost, with taxes $97.50 / night which comes out to $32.50 / night per person (since I was the last one to join this little group, I got the Murphy bed in the living room).
    OTHER COSTS:   This does not include transportation, food, or all the neat stuff you might buy in the bookstore.

    More info will appear in the May issue, and/or check their web site: www.Dowsers.org

    Passover,   Easter,   and   the   next   Installment

    Passover, a very holy time for Jews, this year takes place April 9-15.  As all Jewish holydays begin at sunset the evening before, this means for Jews in Montreal, Passover begins 7:15 PM April 8.    Passover begins the 15 day of Nisan in the Jewish calendar.   April 9, 2009 corresponds to the 15 day of Nisan in the year 5769.

    Easter Sunday is determined by the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, which is the first full moon after the Vernal (Spring) Equinox.  The 2009 Vernal equinox took place March 20, the following full moon is April 9 which makes Easter fall on April 12.   Most Christian holydays are figured by the Gregorian (civil) calendar.  Except for Easter.  Easter follows the lunar calendar.  Interesting.

    Passover represents freedom from bondage (slavery).  The Passover story occurred, if it can be believed, according to many, but not all --- calculations, in the year 1476 B.C.E., when Pharaoh (King) Thutmose III ruled Egypt. This date is the generally accepted date for when the Hebrews' Exodus from Egypt occurred. However, there are many other dates claimed by different scholars that cover the 15th centuries, 14th centuries, and 13th centuries B.C.E., in particular the dates when Pharaoh (King) Ramses II ruled Egypt.   Pharaoh Ramses lived from 1314 B.C.E. to 1224 B.C.E. and ruled from 1290 B.C.E. to 1224 B.C.E.

    Easter represents resurrection.  Jesus' body, if the story can be believed, was liberated from death.

    It is about time for the next liberation to take place.  What form will it take place?   Total freedom from the body itself?  Is this what we can expect December 21, 2012?   Stay tuned!

    CONVERSATION WITH A SAGE:   Last year I was talking with a Hebrew Scholar, a professor at Hebrew University. 2 big questions concerning Passover that I could not obtain any useful answers for:
         (1)     Each year we conduct a Passover Seder (go through the Passover Story with the symbolic foods and the meal), it seems that in order to remember the bad things that happened to ensure that history does not repeat itself,  we are in fact re-stimulating the "bad stuff".  Talking again about the plagues and how evil Pharaoh kept the Jews as slaves -- virtually all Jews do this twice a year, every single year, for the last 3500 years -- what this does in some way is it restimulates and increases the dislike and distrust of Pharaoh and the Egyptians.
             The sage explained that, in fact, one is supposed to be focusing on not the bondage, but liberation.  To give thanks for the freedom.

    (2)    About 6 years ago, thinking about the upcoming Passover holiday I got a really creepy feeling.  How can we do this?  I wondered?  How can we -- year after year -- extol and 'worship' a God who has to kill in order to get his way? (With respect to the 10th plague Moses allegedly brought down upon Egypt -- the killing of the first born -- including animals.)   This is not -- was not -- a God I want to feel love and gratitude towards.  Could this be a wrong God that we have been paying attention to?

    He explained:   "There is no historical proof that the Jews were ever slaves in Egypt."  Wow.

    Our March 10th Speaker:  Bruce Irwin
    "Growing Dowsing:  The Fish is Bigger Than You Are"
    Basic Water,  Field and Earth Energy Dowsing Skills
    by Michelle Godfrey
    Dowsing is Bruce Irwin’s “best friend and the biggest influence in my life,” he told the Toronto Dowsers present at the March 10th meeting. Dowsing “makes us more appreciative of life…” and “makes us realize we’re all living in a bowl of clear soup…”  Bruce explained that we are all accompanied, all of the time, by unseen entities and that “when you get a dowsing signal it means you’ve got company. We all harbour a dowser within us, he said, and working with dowsing is like sculpting to free the dowser within.

    Bruce is a water dowser from New York State who has located more than 200 wells over the span of his career. He was first introduced to dowsing at the age of around 10 when his grandfather engaged a water dowser with a willow or apple divining rod to locate a well on his farm. Bruce was impressed for about a minute and then promptly forgot about dowsing until about 20 years later when he met his mentor, Ted Kaufmann, a legendary dowser, with whom Bruce later apprenticed. Bruce showed a British film reenacting Kaufmann famously using his pendulum and L-rod and a map to locate two men and their truck which was mysteriously missing for months in New York State in 1991. The truck’s location at the bottom of Lake George was amazingly pinpointed by Kaufmann while standing in the bow of a police boat with his L-rod, shouting out navigational directions.

    It is a law of physics that moving water creates an electromagnetic field. As human bodies are composed mostly of water, when we walk over a water vein, our bodies are drawn toward the earth. As modern humans, our senses are no longer attuned to detect the minuscule attraction signal that our physical bodies experience but dowsing tools can do the indicating for us. It is not the tool that is reacting however; the tool is acting as an indicator of the reaction experienced by our bodies. It is important to remember that the electromagnetic field of moving water can harm human health with longterm exposure by destabilizing our immune systems; the stronger the field/water flow, the more detrimental the effect. Sitting over a powerful water vein for some time, would initially make us feel cold. Some living things are not harmed by these fields. Cats, for instance, love to curl up over a water vein and cows like to give birth over them.

    Using the water vein that runs down the middle of the auditorium of the Latvian Centre, which he divined, Bruce treated the Toronto Dowsers to a demonstration of his water dowsing technique using an L-rod.

    He started in the search position with the L-rods and forearms positioned horizontally to the ground, saying that blood doesn’t like to flow upstream. Then he walked forward, not slowly, and the rods quickly moved into what he called the contact position at the point where Bruce crossed the edge of the vein. The rods remained in that position until he crossed over the far edge of the vein. This type of dowsing is purely mechanical, where the dowsing tool is indicating the body’s reaction to the electromagnetic field of the moving underground water.

    Next Bruce edged his dowsing up a notch by stating an intention of locating the center of flow - or maximum volume of flow - of the vein. This is the point at which the vein would ideally be drilled. Now his dowsing was taking on a mental quality and the tool no longer responded to the edges of the vein but only moved when Bruce stepped across the 2 ½’ wide center of flow.

    Next Bruce dowsed for the direction of flow, which the L-rods pointed out directly. In dowsing for a a drillable vein, this helps to establish the location of the well head and the proposed septic system.

    When dowsing a property to locate a well, Bruce has a set of five well-established minimum conditions which make up the criteria for a “dominant water vein,” the only kind of water vein Bruce dowses for. His intent to locate only those veins satisfying these conditions is set before dowsing begins. The conditions are:

    1. The vein must be less than 300 ft below the earth’s surface. Drills will wobble at any greater depth and veer away from the vein.
    2. The vein must contain a minimum flow of 5 gal/min recoverable. Mortgages become available on land that contains veins with at least this much flow. Bruce does however prefer to drill veins flowing at least at 10 gal/min.
    3. The vein must not be supporting anyone either upstream or downstream but the owner of the land on which the well is to be drilled.
    4. The vein must have existed for at least 50 years, even through droughts.
    5. The vein must contain potable water.

    Dowsing requires focus and the more you practice at dowsing the more focused you become. Dowsing exercises should provide instant feedback to be most effective. Bruce warns beginners not to dowse the future. Instead start with a daily dowsing exercise, such as dowsing for your mail. Start by asking “has the mail run passed my house as of now?” You can follow this with more specific questions about the total number of items in the mail box today, the number of bills, the number of cheques, the number of personal items, the number of flyers and so on.

    Bruce ended the presentation with an amusing display of unconventional dowsing tools, from pencils, to rubber drain plugs, driving home the point that the dowsing magic is to be found not in the tool but inside of us.

    On faith:  A Eulogy to Mark Twain at his funeral in San Francisco in 1910:

    I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.  She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky meet.

    Gone where? Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and span as she was when she left my side, and is just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination.

    Her diminished size is in me, not in her and just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There she goes,” there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, “Her she comes!”

    The Meaning of Commitment
    …until one is committed, there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth: the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

    All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise never have occurred. A whole stream of events flow from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man or woman could have dreamt would come their way.

    Whatever you can do, or dream you can…begin it.

    Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

                                                    THANK YOU, MICHELLE!

        On Bruce Marna Ehrech, President of the Chittendon (Vermont) County Chapter of the ASD said that Bruce spoke to her chapter and said:  "Bruce is brilliant when it comes to water dowsing.  He's a great teacher.  A kind and generous teacher.  Be sure to bring your water dowsing questions."   Bruce loves to teach.   This is true.  He does, and has taught --- if not thousands, definitely hundreds of people of all ages to [water] dowse.  And to find things, pets, objects, lost people.  There are very few who have what it takes  AND can convey it to others.   Bruce is one.   A traditional water dowser, rods -- L Rods, Y Rods, W Rods -- seem to be a mere extension of his arms.
          Bruce  has been and continues to be a very good water dowser --- for decades --- as well as successfully finding people, pets, items, etc., which have been lost --- he is also a very good, basic, resourceful speaker and teacher.   Talented, skilled, passionate and serious about it and with an even bigger sense of humor, that can help all of us become better dowsers.
     Water dowsing is the basis of all dowsing.   You get the best response with water dowsing because these are earth energies.   And we all are 70% water.  Its simple resonance.   What a powerful miraculous feeling it is to get that response!!!   You will never forget it and it will help you with the other kinds of dowsing you want to do.   (How do you think Uri Geller got rich?  It wasn't by bending spoons.   He was known for his spoon bending but he found gold -- which is a very similar talent to finding water.  Because he had a reputation, the mine owners followed his dowsing advice.  QED.)

    Dowsing makes us more appreciative of life, and more aware that there is (a) larger life.
    It makes us realize that we are all living in a bowl of clear soup.
    What is making it all happen is inside us.
    When we get a dowsing signal, we've got company!  There is something out there, around us, that is keeping us company.  Just because we can not see it does not mean that it is not there.  Dowsing is one of the most demonstrative ways, giving reinforcement and feedback, that we are being accompanied by unseen entities, all the time.

    Just like a sculptor, working with a block of wood, uncovering the form that was there all the time, when dowsing you keep uncovering a more elaborate and a more detailed structure that is the dowser within us.

    Dowsing is a product of faith and commitment.  Focus is a byproduct of that commitment.
    You bridge to the other side with dowsing.
    You get there by starting with what it is you want to get better at and you will get better.  The results come.

    When asked a question about how, why – something works the way it does, Bruce said he does not know.  He frequently accesses the great Librarian in the Sky.   You develop your focus and your intent and you are given your library card.

    "I trust that information to be truthful with me.  Because I'm truthful to dowsing. It's the best friend and biggest influence in my life."       Earlier that day, Bruce dowsed the auditorium we use and found a nice large water vein directly straight down the center of the room, going from the stage, under the podium area, through to back of the room.  This vein is 260 feet deep and  is flowing at 16 gallons a minute.  There is no one else depending on that vein for a water supply.
          Also, he had moved the chairs so that no one was sitting directly over that area.  (So no one would accumulate the residue of detrimental energies in their body as well as become tired during the evening.)
         Halfway through his presentation, Bruce showed us a 10 minute video of Ted Kaufman that was created by a British team that came over specifically to film Ted.  Afterwards, Bruce kindly donated the video to our group.  . . . .  He said that the "Y" Rod is an intermediate dowsing tool.  It took him 5 weeks to get a signal from the "Y" Rod;  just hours to get a signal from the "L" Rods -- which is a less advanced tool . . . .   He gave us dowsing instruction, explained how to get best results and why. . . . He showed us tools including the Spanish Dip Needle  . . .  Bruce told us stories -- his own as well as historical -- that were entertaining as well as instructive. . . .
         More gifts from his generousity:  At the presentation, everyone got an authentic Bruce Irwin hand crafted "Y" Rod, small size, and at the workshops, each attendee received a medium size one.  VERY nice!
    The Correct Way to use L Rods, and why:
    Hold the the L Rods horizontal to the ground.
    Your forearms should also be horizontal.
    Don't hold your arms uphill.
    Blood does not like to flow uphill and the blood is the "oil" that sends the signals through our nervous system.  That's the thing that makes it happen.  When you raise your hands, the blood drains out and you want that feeling of circulation in your hands as you are working.
    For some people the tools react by turning inward.  This neutralizes the variance between our body's em field and the em field emanating from the vein of water.

    As you are working with rods, you create a state of:
    It is the change in the earth's em field that tips the balance of the dowsing tool.  You put things in a state of --- equilibrium and under tension --- and the nervous system sends signals through your muscular system  so that the dowsing tools will indicate positioning.  There is no mystery about it.

    Developing Proficiency:
           To become proficient at dowsing, for good practice:   Make an exercise that is readily available with regularity and one that does not dowse the future.  You can get into trouble trying to predict the future, unless you have some solid few years of apprenticeship under your belt.  Regularity.  Dependability.   Accurate dependence on feedback.   Without anything that will skew it.   You want to calibrate what you are doing with what you thought you were doing
            An exercise that Bruce likes is to dowse his mail.  Dependable, verifiable, regular.  He has a number of questions that he can ask, to practice his dowsing on a daily basis, i.e., daily in this case on those days when the mail is delivered.

    Well known people in history who practiced or praised Dowsing:  Herodotus, a 5th century B.C. Greek historian, Ammianus Marcellinus (325/330-after 391) was a fourth-century Roman historian, Cicero, Pliny the Elder, Seneca, Aristotle, Plato, DaVinci, Martin Luther, John Locke, Louis XIII, Albert Einstein, David Ben Gurion, Gamal Abdel Nasser, General Patton, and Kenneth Roberts who brought on the modern age of Dowsing.

    On Noxious energies and Water Veins:
         All underground water veins, according to Bruce, emit energies that are harmful to human beings, i.e., if one stays above them for any length of time.  What it is, they emit an energy whose frequency is incompatible with human physiology, if humans are exposed to this for any length of time.  This frequency, however, is beneficial to some other animals, such as cats, bees, ants.  [The best comparison  I can think of at the moment is a comparison to staying out in the sun.  A snake can stretch itself out on a hot rock under a hot desert sun all day and love it.  Humans can withstand some exposure, where a little can be healthy, and depending on individual tolerance, will suffer increasing degrees of burned skin, leading to death,  the longer they stay out in the sun, especially if it is very hot.]

    As Joey Korn tells us, it is not the energy which is harmful, it is the content of the energy field itself and how it affects us.

    Bruce says that what happens is:  noxious energies -- they break down our immune system.

    Bruce says that in some European countries, before one can get a permit to build a structure, they must get a certificate from a licenced dowser that there are no noxious energies on the property [see elsewhere in this issue for a discussion on this topic].  The reason for this is with socialized medicine, the government pays for medical care and they don't want to allow or encourage circumstances that would probably cause illness.  (See "Dowsing Certificate, page ____ in this issue.)

    He made dowsing tools out of "toys", to demonstrate the principle that if you can induce the correct the relationship between equilibrium and tension – you can make a dowsing tool out of almost anything.

    Bruce showed how to dowse a well for depth, gallons per minute, direction of flow and all the associations you need.  And that on the weekend workshop he shared with us the agreement with -- and instructions that he leaves with the landowner regarding what to do after he leaves, until the time that they get the agreed upon number of gallons, and quality from a (drilled) well.

    *            *            *            *            *
    There is much instruction, good tips and wisdom in the presentation about how to dowse for water from the presentation.  If you want to dowse for water, you want to hear this presentation.  You ought to be able to get a CD from this presentation when it is completed.

    He left us with a Question we might want to dowse about:   Regarding Hartmann lines and Curry lines:   Are these carriers of energy information to give insects and the animal world instructions with regard to what to do?   (Bruce:  We'll have to talk with you some day about the information Dr. Robert J. Gilbert and Dr. Ibrahim Karim gave us on this subject!)

    I was amazed at the level of quality of this presentation and realized its because Bruce has the right stuff.  It's solid.  It's deep.  It's wise and profound.  Many other dowsers, even teachers and speakers -- are line cooks.  Bruce is Escoffier.   Watching and listening, you could feel it.  You could feel the energy of this Master Dowser.   Just by being around Bruce, one's dowsing improves.  Bruce's energy is caught AND taught!

    We passed around a donation jar at the end to help offset the expenses we incurred in bringing him here.  Thank you for your generousity.  It made for a nice visit for Bruce and we were able to be good, caring, attentive hosts!

    Also at the end --- Bruce had brought a large variety of dowsing tools for us to try.  They were spread out on tables and everyone got up and practiced with different tools, around the room.  It was a great and truly hands on experience!

    At the 3 workshops later in the week we learned:  4 different kinds of map dowsing, gained comfort and confidence using the Y Rods and L rods and more.  Bruce dowsed 2 wells while he was here.

    Bruce Irwin:  Thank YOU for coming to visit with us and share your infinite knowledge and experience.  It was a grand presentation and a wonderful visit!

    (Knitting, Tourette's, Dinshah, Gayelord Hauser et al, DOWSING!)

    1st:  2 good read from the public library:

    -  "The Friday Night Knitting Club", by Kate Jacobs.  The author, Ms. Jacobs grew up in Vancouver, attended Carleton U, then moved to Manhattan which gave her the background for this semi biographical novel. Its a well written heart warming story, a good read,  about a group of -- mostly women -- who become attracted to a NYC yarn store, start a knitting club, and their stories.

    -  "Against Medical Advice" by James Patterson, Hal Friedman Cory Friedman:  An excellent well written, well documented true story about Hal Friedman's son, Cory, who as a young child and for the next 13 years battles with Tourette's Syndrome, Obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety disorder.  Extraordinary what this family went through, and their courage, inner strength and love for one another.  Also extraordinary is the sickening saga of the drugs and other medications -- heavy ones -- prescribed for this young man, by seeming medical experts who don't seem to know their behinds from their elbows.
          (I read this book because I have a cousin, a 3rd cousin -- with Tourette's.  No one ever wanted to talk about it and this seemed to bring a feeling of shame around the family.   Today, my cousin continues in a very dysfunctional life.   In reading this story, and thinking about my cousin, it seems quite probably that Tourette's in people can be a result of some very unfortunate past life experiences that "leak" into this one, ie, where the boundaries between the 2 are not as solid as they ought to be.)

    2nd:   Thank you, Libby!   After 52 years in her beautiful home, the president of  CHOC is moving.   Can you even begin to imagine the fantastic books she has -- had in her home?  I/We --- got 58 of them!  joy oh joy!  Marion Gervais was helping me select them, and as I was scanning them, trying hard not to drool, Marion so kindly was putting bookmarks in the indicated places.   For example, here's an interesting  biological factoid from a Gayelord Hauser book:  "... the saliva of persons seemingly immune to dental decay contained more than the average amount of ammonia, which dissolves the viscid coating that forms on teeth and breeds decay bacteria."
             It's the old books that have so much real health lore which equates to wisdom.   E.g., people today are looking for the Dr. Jarvis books which are hard to find.  The Stanley Burroughs "Age of Enlightenment" books, too, are out of print and are sought after.   My uncle was a big influence on me and lived to a ripe old age.  His gurus were Adele Davis, Carleton Fredericks, Jack LaLanne and Gayelord Hauser.   Riches within, for us, today.

    3rd:  The Book Joy Saga Continues !*!* - -  About 5 years ago, I became aware of  Dinshah's Spectro-Chrome Metry-Encyclopedia, the original 3 volume set published in 1939 and finally got one this month.  Without using unpronouceable medical terms which speak of parts of the body as if they are independent entities, he describes how the body works so that balance and healing can be achieved if something is out of balance.

          Here is an excerpt from Chapter 56, page 532 "Rubor, Calor, Tumor, Dolor":
    3.    "What is Inflammation?  It is said to be a morbid change or series of reactions produced in the tissues by an Irritant --- a "Kick of the Red Wave."  The word comes from the latin "In" meaning In and "Flamma" meaning Flame; aggregately speaking,Inflammation means "set on fire".  That is sufficiently clear to give us the clue that the Predominance of all Inflammations is on the Infra-Green and therefore the Remedy must be on the Ultra-Green. ...  We do not have to pay any attention to the name or variety; all we have to know is that ALL INFLAMMATIONS are on the Infra-Green and the Remedy for all is on the Ultra-Green....

    5.    "...  Inflammation announces its presence by one or more of Four Sigals: Rubor, Calor, Tumor, Dolor, emaning respectively Redness, Heat, Swelling, Pain. When any irritation commences in the body, something being necessary to be done, promptly the vital stream of Blood is sent to the affected Area in extra quantity.  This prdouces there mroe Redness and with it later, more Heat.  When the Inflammation gets such a volume of Blood that the vessels can not normally accommodate it, Swelling occurs, which because of the distension, produces Pain.  Thus, is the path of all Inflammations lined by certain gradations or Signals.
    6.         "These Signals are the Police Warnings of Nature; they are Her Call Bells  We do not follow the haphazard tactics of the Medical Doctor injects Morphine to sooth the Pain and paralyzes the Brain and Nervous System.  It is a wrong way, because it leaves the cause as it was and induces new troubles.  Such procedure would be like the automobile driver seeing a Red Light on the road, picking up a stone and smashing the Signal, believing that the disappearance of the Signal would clear the road; then seeing no Red, he would be starting to break through the lines and meeting a collision.  That is foolishness. We obey the signal and do the needful to remove the cause.
    8.         " . . .  Medical Doctors have a separate name for Inflammation of different parts. It would appear that they revel in mystifying the sufferer with bombastic names.  It would also appear, that they take pleasure in using as large a Dictionary as possible. ..."

        The above concept ought to interest anyone suffering from chronic inflammation, and/or its associates:  allergies, arthritis -- to name a couple.   If you have a chronic condition for which you have not found relief, consider letting me know so I can look it up in his books to give the information to hopefully understand its cause.   And, it include some info about it in our newsletters.  If  one person is affected, others might be as well.

        Although Dinshah did not originate the concepts used in color therapy, he started the color healing system(s) most people use today, ie, using specific colors or combinations of back lit colored theatre gels, with 'tonations'  to achieve healing of virtually any (physical) condition.

    4th:   DOWSING  BOOKS!
                 Bruce Irwin, in his presentation, read some mighty fine excerpts from the Divining Hand to us.   Oh dear, I thought everyone knew about this fantastic book.   This made me realize how remiss I have been in NEVER! creating a list of dowsing books for you -- despite requests.   Here's a short list of just a few books that should be in every dowsers library:

    Dowser's Certificate required for Construction,  Property Transfer???

    As we know, if a person spends a lot of time over an area of geopathic stress, they are quite likely to develop a life shortening illness.

    Over the years, several sources have mentioned, in passing, that in Poland, one can not build a house, or, transfer the title of a house from one party to another unless a dowser -- a licensed dowser --  has checked out that property and ascertained that it is free of harmful energies.  Again, I've heard this several times from different people.  They really did not know more than that.

    I have asked and looked around, but can not find anything to either confirm or pooh pooh this concept.  I have looked through "The Divining Hand" but can find no mention of this or anything close.

    This concept does not seem entirely logical, because, as we know, there are spots of energy that are detrimental to humans all over the place, and, as we know the idea is to make sure that your bed, favorite chair, favorite spot, NOT be over one of these spots.  It would be impossible to build a home that is not over a grid crossing, unless the home is very teeny.  Yes?  However, I have heard this stated from enough sources to make the concept itself fairly credible and want to know more.

    Last week I was speaking with a dowser who moved here from Poland and asked her.  She said that in the old days they used to make use of dowsers for these surveys, and respect them and their work, but when the communists took over they got rid of a lot of the old ways and everything had to be 'scientific' from a western perspective.

    If anyone has any documented information on this topic, can enlarge upon it, comment on its truth or falsity, please contact me.  Thank you.

    (From  members: Pauline Gagnon, Aleks Radojcic and Sheri Gould out in Wyoming!)

    (1)  Pauline and Magnetite:  Pauline gives us additional insight into Magnetite:   "The pineal gland is most imprtant for all, especially for Dowsers.   There is a  concentrated substance:   Magnetite (pizeo-electrical crystals) in and around the pineal gland.  This area, along with our sinuses and ephemoral bone (forehead above the eyes) plays a large part in our sensing system.  Dowsers seem to sense radiation or react to electro-magnetic fields from these areas.  Unfortunately,  for various reasons, these areas  are clogged up and the magnetite availability  is reducing.

    "We do have help!::   Limestone -based soil in France grows the best Lavender fields. This soil  is calcium -based and it alkalizes, two very important components for health and  longevity.

    "Guess what?  Lavender absorbs these minerals including magnetite.  Because the concentration of magnetite is around the forehead (3rd eye) and pineal area, use Lavender oil at that location.  I have found after decades of pure essential oils, Young Living Lavender is the best !

    "For best results, gently rub a couple drops of YLEO Lavender across the brow, the back of neck, on the top of head and behind the ears (on the bone).

    "Also,  Meditation  helps to stimulate the crystaline substances (e.g., Magnetite ) in this area of the head."

    (2)   From:  Sheri Gould!, one of our members in Wyoming, in response to our YouTube site:

           "I read on the YouTube channel how you love Close Encounters!  Me too!  So I wanted to mention that Devil's Tower, which was the focus of that movie, is here in Northeast Wyoming.    It is actually connected with the Pleiades Star System.  The Native American legend is about 7 maidens who were being chased by a bear.  They asked the Great Spirit to save them, and the land began rising up with the bear clawing on the sides, but the maidens were saved - and now they are the 7 sisters of the Pleiades!    As you know, I am a contactee, and I have seen the higher dimensional Pleiadian rainbow ships hovering over the tower!    Devil's Tower is a 5th  dimensional doorway/portal which comes out at Lake Titicaca in Peru!    One of my friends has been at Lake Titicaca and has seen solid craft fly out of the lake into the sky!"

    (3)   Toronto Dowser Dr. Aleks Radojcic, D.N.M., Dr. Ac., R.N.C.P., P.H., R.H., founder of  Knowledge Products has created award winning cleansing products to help improve health.  The 24 page manual that he has written to accompany each product has instructions on how to use them, why and suggested nutritional and/or food support.  Three of these products  which comprise the Knowledge Products’ 30 day body cleansing program are:
    Step One:     30 Day Paraway Cleanse,
    Step Two:    30 Day Fabulax Bowel Cleanse or
    Step Three:  30 Day LymphoHepaRen Cleanse.)

    [The 30 Day Paraway Cleanse won the Alive (Magazine) Gold award,  for the best product of 1996.]

    If you have obtained Step One: 30 Day Paraway Cleanse it is because you either suspect you have parasites in your system or have health challenges that need to be addressed or you like to practice prevention.    Because the reproductive cycle of most parasites is anywhere from one to three month long, in order to eliminate them all (the adult, larva and eggs), especially in chronic situations, cleansing should be done for at least one, preferably to three months.   The 30 Day Paraway Cleanse should also be done once a year for maintenance after doing the three step whole body cleanse consisting of Steps One, Two and Three.

    If you have obtained Step Two: 30 Day Fabulax Bowel Cleanse it is because you are having a bowel movement every second or third day, or every seven or more days which can be a cause of many health problems. Parasites, yeast and other toxins thrive when bowel function is stagnant.  Fabulax Bowel Cleanse will help you have one bowel movement everyday and when used longer than a month, you will eventually have two to three movements per day.  Or, it can be used to do a preventative cleansing.

    If you have obtained Step Three: 30 Day LymphoHepaRen Cleanse, it is because you have either a urinary infection, stones in the urinary tract or a sluggish liver, stones in the liver ducts and gallbladder or swollen lymphatic glands and feel generally run down.

    Symptoms of poor digestion include belching, heartburn, flatulence, fullness, bloating and fatigue after meals.

    You will not fully absorb vitamin, mineral and amino acid supplements, before a proper body cleansing, especially after years of neglecting cleansings. Cleansing involves taking herbs to activate or open blocked organs through which the body eliminates toxins. These organs include the liver, large intestine, kidney and urinary bladder, along with the lymphatic system, lungs and skin. Cleansing is to the body what a tune-up is to a car. If your car is not regularly serviced, it will run progressively worse. So too will your body. Cleansing done regularly, once or twice a year, will improve your health.

    Symptoms of Parasite Infections:   May include constipation, diarrhoea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, skin conditions, allergies, sleeping problems, joint and muscle aches and pains, nervousness, granulomas, anaemia, teeth grinding, chronic fatigue and other immune problems.  Many parasite-based problems can mimic diseases that are more familiar to doctors.

    Symptoms of Bowel Imbalance:   May include constipation, diarrhoea and dissention of the abdomen, a yellow or white sticky coating on the tongue, a frozen shoulder, skin disorders, allergies, haemorrhoids, tiredness, sadness and anguish.

    Symptoms of Kidney/Bladder, Lymphatic System, and Liver/Gallbladder Malfunction:  May include chronically feeling tired or stressed, pain in the lower back or groin, rectum or genital organs, high blood pressure, bone, cartilage or nail disorders, hearing problems, head hair loss, impotence, sciatica, kidney stones, retention or dribbling of urine, night urination and oedema.
            Any oedema or water holding, whether in the lungs, arms or abdomen can be due to kidney malfunctioning. Other causes of kidney dysfunction are hereditary, dietary, medical drug overuse and over exposure to various environmental toxins. According to The New England Journal of Medicine, Dec. 20, 2001,  “if a person uses Aspirin and Tylenol regularly these may be linked to kidney failure.”

    Symptoms of Lymphatic System Malfunction:   May include frequent colds, unexplained fevers, sinus problems, enlarged, swollen lymph nodes, skin problems, considerable weight loss, breast lumps, sore nipples, paleness, chronic fatigue and a weak immune system.

    Symptoms of Liver/Gallbladder Malfunction:   May include pain in the upper abdomen, headaches, alcoholism, hepatitis, blurred vision, anaemia, mental disorders, irritability and anger, sciatica, neck or shoulder pain, gallstones and nausea.

    Tooth Health, and, Cell Salts

    As a reminder, 3 items that have appeared individually in our newsletters that can help with oral health:

    (1)   Homeopathic toothpaste, such as Homeodont or Homeofresh.   Used on an occasional or regular basis, they can and do help to improve the condition of your teeth and of your gums, even tighten up loose teeth (rub a little on your gums with a finger).   So far I have only found them in compounding pharmacies or online.  More expensive than other toothpastes, yes.   And extremely worth it.

    (2)    MMS:  (Sodium Chlorite):   Infections behind the teeth, even small ones -- that remain unknown -- are common.  Abcesses, too, although thankfully less common, do happen and sometimes antibiotics -- which are not so wonderful because they kill the good as well as the bad -- are difficult to terminate.  MMS can eliminate infections and abcesses.   However you do want to be careful as to the amount you use and the length of time you use it.
           Many people have reported that they had all sorts of infections, abcesses and so on that were not helped by any of the nostrums of our so called modern science, and remained in agony for lengths of time.  MMS killed 'em dead.

         MMS is a powerful tool which can be used to fight a life threatening affliction.  Can be THE answer, and it its use is NOT recommended for long term treatment of a chronic illness.

    SCHUESSLER CELL SALTS  - or -  Tissue Salts
    A very important and often overlooked powerful adjunct for health and healing...

    Tissue salts or "cell salts" are vital mineral constituents of the body.  While not actually "minerals" in the way we think of minerals, they are, in a sense a precursor to minerals.  You need a proper balance and supply of minerals in the body for it to function well.  You need these salts to allow the minerals to function as they ought to.

    We  require them, and, in minute doses.  They are distributed homeopathically.  Easily, easily obtained, inexpensively and with no side effects, rapidly and easily assimilated -- even if there is some digestive impairment --  for the speedy restoration of the natural balance of the body system.

    By combining with organic substances in the body the salts produce and maintain the health of the human tissue cells. Deficiency or imbalances of these cell salts imbalances body chemistry and could result in illness.

    They are vital and essential  nutritional elements of the cell and lacking any one or more of these minerals will prevent the cells from up taking the proper nutrients supplied by digestion and the blood.

    Doctor William H. Schuessler, an early nineteenth Century physiological chemist and physicist from Germany identified 12 "tissue (cell) salts" in every human cell  in 1873.  He found that there are certain essential minerals that the body requires, in proper balance, in all of its cells.  An imbalance or a lack of any of these minerals may lead to disease.  Providing the missing minerals to the tissues corrects that imbalance, and so eliminates the illness.  This seemingly simple system of cure has great practical application in health.

    Dr Schuessler noted that lacking in any of these cell salts, a loss of health occurred and once the deficiency or imbalance was corrected the body would heal itself.

    Using only a small number of harmless combinations (or "salts") of these minerals, it is possible for any individual to treat him- or herself simply and effectively for a great variety of everyday minor ailments.  This cell-salt treatment replenishes something the body lacks and wants, as opposed to the symptom suppression methods popular among those who espouse western medical drug use.

     A "salt" is any type of readily dissolvable mineral combination, not just table salt.  Many people take dietary iron supplements, but few would chew on a rusty nail for an iron source. The same is true with the Schuessler minerals: the potassium, silicon, iron, phosphate or other substance must be in a special potentiation to be most useable to the body.

    Each cell is made up of three classes of materials: water, organic materials which include sugars and fats, and inorganic matter (minerals). Even though water and organic matter make up a greater portion of living cells, inorganic matter is vitally important in many biochemical functions within the body. Actually, the creation of new cells depends on the presence of minerals. And mineral deficiencies inhibit the proper functioning of living cells.

    Schuessler cell salts are a non-prescription item and are available directly from any homeopathic outlet and most health food stores.  Schuessler remedies are commonly in a "6X" homeopathic potency.  The "X" refers to the Roman numeral 10; 6x is one part in ten, repeated six times. The cost  moderate, usually $7 to $13 per bottle of 250 or more.  They are usually in the form of very small white tablets and are easily dissolved under the tongue.

    Cell salts are in ionic form--very digestible. By putting the substance under your tongue it bypasses the digestive juices and goes directly into your bloodstream in this ionic form. The cells recognize this form as useable and immediately suck it into the cellular membrane. Once enough of the substance has been accepted and the body is balanced, an intake of more cellular salt will do us no harm and be excreted from the system. This is not like an herb, drug or nutritional supplement where the body has to expend energy to digest and to rid the body of the excess.

    A few of the conditions that these salts can address are:  bony tumors; sluggish circulation; cracks in the skin, loss of elasticity; rough, loose and sensitive teeth; delayed dentition; relaxation of tissues and blood vessels causing in flabby flesh; varicose veins; hemorrhoids and displacements of organs,  growth problems; broken bones; cramps; spasms; numbness; cold feelings in the body and head; sluggish circulation; susceptibility to colds and mucous; spinal curvature; sore breasts; chronic tonsillitis; cracks in the skin and night sweats, cellular regeneration; infection due to pus; pimples, sore throats, colds, pancreatic, liver and kidney disturbances; frontal headaches with nausea; excessive sensitivity of nerves as well as cravings for fruit and acids,  for acute phases of disease. Increases body development; regulates the bowels; improves the appetite and relieves debility and listlessness. Also used in vomiting of food and blood; nosebleeds; teething fever; inflamed hemorrhoids; retention of urine in children; excessive menses; congestion, inflammatory pain in general, high temperatures, increased heart rates, insomnia and congestive headaches,  Indicated in all inflammatory or catarrhal conditions such as chickenpox, measles, burns and scalds, leucorrhea (white blood cells flowing out of the system via diarrhea), jaundice, acne and asthma. It is also used for sluggish conditions, sore throat, white colored tongue, light colored stools, coughs and colds,  for offensive secretions and excretions, for nerve depression or excitement, sexual impotence, nervous headaches, lack of pep, ill humor, skin ailments, occasional sleeplessness, timidity, tantrums, loss of nerve and mental power or after great mental and bodily strain, and for nervous giddiness and squinting,  hot flashes; chills; weariness; heaviness; giddiness; boxed in feelings; stomach catarrh; inflammatory conditions; eruptions of the skin; shifting pains; palpitations; anxiety; fear; sadness; toothaches; headaches and pains in limbs that tend to increase indoors especially in warm and close rooms or in the warm air of the summer; yellow/slimy catarrhal discharges; dandruff; psoriasis and diseases of the nails (rough or ribbed),  headaches with darting stabs of pain, muscular twitching, rheumatic pains, throat spasms, muscle cramps, hiccoughs, squinting, teething, hypertrophy of the prostate gland, colic, asthma, spasmodic palpitation of the heart, spasmodic yawning, menstrual pain, stomach cramps, flatulence, neuralgia, sciatica, insomnia from brain exhaustion and in profuse sweating,  delirium tremors, eyestrain, vomiting of watery mucous, hay fever, low spirits, heartburn, toothaches, craving for salt and salty foods, weak eyes, either excess of heavy sleep or insomnia, falling hair, early morning headaches, headaches with constipation, chronic constipation due to dehydration, rapid pulse intermittent with palpitation, hangnails, cracked finger tips, numbness of the hands and feet and greasy skin, gout, stiffness, swollen joints, lumbago, inflammatory rheumatism, high cholesterol, acid blood, headaches on top of the head, sour breath, pain over and inside the eyeballs, red blotched tongue coated yellow at the root, nausea, loss of appetite and habitual constipation,  influenza, humid asthma, malaria, liver ailments, vesicular eruptions containing serum, herpes, twitching of hands and feet, constipation, liver and kidney disorders, gallbladder troubles, earache, burning in nose and mouth, brownish green coating of the tongue, bitter taste in the mouth, enlarged prostate and awakening at night with asthma attacks,  fatigue, greater mental than physical strength, over- sensitivity to noises, absentmindedness, crankiness, headaches from nape of neck to top of head settling in one eye, nausea, nervous exhaustion, falling hair, sties, floating spots before eyes, red tip of nose, violent sneezing, thickening of nasal mucus membranes with congestion, intensely painful hemorrhoids, large abdomen in children, uric acid deposits in urine, smelly feet and armpits, pus formation, boils, tonsillitis, stomach pains, brittle / ribbed nails with white spots and weak ankles.
    ACTION ITEMS:    FOR CONSIDERATION:   Dowse to discern if one of the Schuessler cell salts would be beneficial for you to take at this time.  This is especially good to do when you are going through a physical imbalance.  You can also do this when you are feeling fine.  If yes, dowse to see which one of the twelve is optimum for you at this time.  Buy the bottle.  You can take this, you can take 1, 2 or 3 or so tablets several times daily, until you have finished the bottle.  Dowse to determine what is optimal for you.

    Your homeopath or naturopath might help you to determine that you are say a:  "Kali Phos" or a "Nat Mur" or a "Kali Mur", etc., not necessarily for a physical imbalance but because of tendencies you are currently expressing.  Taking a course of the cell salts can balance out these tendencies.

    Upon the advice of my health care practitioner, 2 years ago I took one course (one bottle, until it was done) of  #1 Calcarea Fluorica  (Fluoride of Lime)- Calc. Fluor. when I was experiencing mouth and gum problems.  Within 2 weeks of starting that bottle, my mouth felt much healthier.  That feeling has remained.

    Last year, while going through an uncomfortable cough, I was directed to, and took a course of   #8 Magnesia Phosphorica  (Magnesium phosphate)--Mag. Phos.  It is my feeling that this gave an overall strengthening and support to my respiratory system.

    The above instances were what was necessary for me -- your cell salt solution might be totally different.  Find out what will work for you.  DOWSE  FOR IT!  Don't use your mind, because, as you know, you might be missing something important that you are not aware of.  DOWSE FOR IT!

    It could be a good idea to completely take one bottle, wait 2 weeks, dowse for the next one and so on, until you have taken all 12 or your dowsing indicates you do not need any more.  And to repeat this cycle every 7 years.   Hopefully you will notice an overall improvement in the way your body feels and functions.

    [Interesting note, yes???  "#8 Magnesia Phosphorica (Magnesium phosphate)--Mag. Phos. is contained in beer and cereals. Note a craving for beer may mean a deficiency of Mag. Phos. It is a constituent of bone, teeth, white matter of brain tissue, nerve, muscle and blood cells."]

    Stem Enhance Eliminated the Agony of Eczema
    I found out last year that my beloved gorgeous niece has been suffering horribly from Eczema for several years.   One of my best health authorities told me that Eczema results from an insufficiency of Vitamin D.  So we got her some potent liquid Vitamin D, some liver cleanse regiments and a special skin cream.  Unfortunately, they seemed to be of little help.

    2 years ago she took part in a biking, swimming and running Triathalon in Maui.  I gave her a bottle of StemEnhance to help provide extra energy and to speed recovery.   Of course, she disregarded the advice of her sweet Auntie Mame.   She called last week, filled with supreme relief, telling me that "her Eczema" was cured, in 2 weeks, thanks to that bottle of green pills I gave her 2 years ago that she took -- finally -- out of anguish and desperation.

    I was delighted and surprised.  Then I understood the pathway as to how this healing occurred.  Her beneficial intestinal flora had been weakened due to antibiotic use, and was unable to detox whatever pollutants she took in, which enabled the skin problem to take hold.  The high quality chlorophyll is helping to rebuild and restore the bacteria and rebuild the immune system.  This is algae, marine algae, the primary basis for all life on this planet.  The building blocks of life.  Of course!

    Now if her mother (my sister) will only listen to me once in her life and give a half capsule a day to the very old family dog who has diabetes, is having trouble walking, and is losing kidney and bowel control -- cause this could help him in all those ways.  Big Sigh.  (Don't we just love our families?  Absolutely!  They do their jobs so well --- which is to confound one another!  Lovingly, of course...)

    Within the past 2 years, reports on StemEnhance, an algae supplement offered by StemTech Health Sciences, Inc., have been included in our issues.   Ellie Drew, who visited with us February 2006 and April 2007 was the first person to tell us about this miraculous product.   Since that time, myself, and several other Toronto Dowsers have been benefitting from using it on a fairly regular basis.   A report with several member testimonials was in the June 2007 newsletter.

    Stem Enhance is a whole foods extract of blue green algae.  Its main thrust is to support and enhance the release of adult stem cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream.   Then these stem cells find their way to the area of the body where they are most needed, becoming the body's major repair, renewal and restoration system.   A  natural botanical extract, this is the very first product on the market from the product category called “stem cell enhancers”.   It was developed by research scientist Christian Drapeau, of Montreal.

    StemEnhance™ is a blend of two compounds extracted from an aqua botanical (water plant) called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, or AFA.  One extract supports the release of stem cells from the bone marrow. The other extract may support the migration of stem cells out of the blood into tissues.

    If this product had been available in stores, or represented by any of our members, I would be talking about it several times a year.  But because this is sold through network marketing and I can personally profit by it, I write about it seldom, and also asked for sufficient experience and corroboration by any members who wanted to try it.  Many did and their remarks are included in the June 2007 issue.  Our results have been outstanding and we are doing what we can to encourage others to -- try -- even just one bottle.  Most people usually require 3 bottles to recognize increased well being.  But our folks are more sensitive.

    A formulation for dogs and one for horses is also available.

    The 3 main areas of improvements seem to be:

  •     Mental clarity, less stress, better moods
  •     Balanced immune system
  •     Reduced inflammation
  • What I loved within hours of taking my first capsules, yes, literally, HOURS --- was the immensely increased mental energy and focus.  The next one was stress related.  Yes, there is STRESS in my life but it does not really affect me, I hardly feel it.  This happy saga continues.

    Before I leave the house for our meetings, I take 2 Stem Enhance capsules and one Vitamin B complex.  I have found this combination to be a major help in assisting with the physical and mental energy demands of the evening.

    If you are interested in trying StemEnhance, check the June 2007 newsletter to see which Toronto Dowsers are offering this product, or, ask me.  I can bring a bottle for you to the meetings, or you can order online at:  http://dowsers.stemtechbiz.com/

    I have been suffering from occasional (once every 6 or 10 weeks) nauseous migraines since I was a teenager.  I'd get that certain feeling in the morning and within 2 hours I better be horizontal and know I'll be remaining that way, not daring to even sip water, for the next 10-20 hours.  In great discomfort.   Not once have I been able to find anything to take to stop this ferocious onslaught.   I have always remained grateful that this never happened the day of a meeting, otherwise I would not be able to make it.  Once it happened the day before a meeting which wa bad enough.   UNTIL!!!!   Our March 10, 2009 meeting.  Oh Boy!  I woke up and knew what was trying to come about.  Thought furiously and remembered the newsletter article in our February 2009 issue I just put out!  On CAYENNE!!! CAYENNE  CAN  MAKE MIGRAINES GO AWAY!!!!!  Although I did not want to take any at this time, I figured I'd better try it.  Put 1/8 tsp. of Herbie's Herbs 40,000 Heat Units grade Cayenne in a third cup of water, stirred and drank.   Little by little, that feeling subsided.  HALLELUJAH!!!   This was the first and only time in my life that something soothed this nasty beast with 2 ugly heads.  THANK YOU HERBIE'S!!!!!

    DOWSING FOR:    Health and Beauty
    (Scars, Hair, Teeth)
    SCARS:    A recent glance in the mirror brought up yet another WHY question:  I noticed the scar on my chin.  When I was a kid, I had 2 accidents:  once trying to do tricks, on my bike, the other time I slipped on the tile floor on the bathroom, both times landing on my chin and being rushed to the doctor.  So I have a scar there.  We all have similar childhood scars, yes?  Why?

    The flesh has long healed.  There is no need or reason to have healing, those furrows, lumps and bumps maintain their existence those locations.  Why?  Why do the scars persist, what is their purpose, especially when we know that new cells grow, depending on the area, from every 3 months to every 7 years?   Now, that scar is a pattern, programmed into the DNA.

    Have you ever thought about that, and, changing the programming -- for scarring -- with your dowsing?  Please do so, and let me know your results, what worked and what did not work so it can be shared with others.

    HAIR:    As encouragement --- about 7 years ago my hair was not as thick as it was the previous year.   I did not like that.  So I asked my dowsing system if it could be changed back to its previous thickness.  The answer I received was "Yes".   I asked my Dowsing system to make it so.   There was a decided difference within a few months.   This stuff works!

    HAIR AGAIN:   Have you heard the news that Scientists know why hair turns gray?  (Apparently they think they know why, but not what to do about it.)  However, this at least is encouraging:

          WHY GRAY?
    People have long known that graying hair is a sign of aging, but exactly  has been a mystery.

    In late February 2009 scientists answered why hair goes gray.  It is believed that gray hair is the result of a chemical chain reaction. When the levels of an enzyme called catalase start to drop, naturally-occurring hydrogen peroxide in our hair can’t be broken down.

    “Not only blondes change their hair color with hydrogen peroxide,” Dr. Gerald Weissmann, research professor and editor-in-chief of The FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) Journal said in a press release. “All of our hair cells make a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide, but as we get older, this little bit becomes a lot. We bleach our hair pigment from within, and our hair turns gray and then white.”

    The discovery could help with the development of “new anti-graying strategies. ...  Chemistry is so well-understood that there are ways of overcoming (graying), by making chemicals to rub on their scalp. That’s in the future.” findingdulcinea.com/news/health/2009/march/

    GROW  MORE  TEETH.  SHARKS DO.:   When it comes to growing teeth, sharks have it made. Sharks have several rows of teeth, “any one of which can be re-grown,” according to Digital Journal. Scientists want to find out what gene prevents humans from having more than one set of teeth. Cracking that genetic code and finding a way to help humans grow new teeth could help people avoid falling victim to gum disease and tooth loss. Researchers believe the Osr2 gene may be the ticket to understanding tooth growth. After breeding mice without the gene, the rodents developed extra teeth next to their original molars.
            If you have lost teeth, consider working with your dowsing system to regrow them, using this information.

    Beauty from the Stars

          Catherine Zeta Jones:

    Beer: Washing your hair with beer will leave it soft and shiny.
    Traditional real ale will work best.
    It’s said to be full of protein which is good for hair strength and growth.
    Mix beer with water and honey to make it less potent and prepare to smell like a brewery.
    Make sure you rinse this out with warm water after.

    Olive oil:  For dry and damaged hair, use a mix of olive oil and essential oils. Works as an emollient and restores the weakest and most brittle of tresses.

    For super-damaged hair, use equal amounts of olive oil, coconut milk, honey and light sesame oil then add a couple of eggs. Blend all this together, leave on overnight and this nourishing concoction will work wonders.

    WHAT   in   the   WORLD  ?!?!?!

    How do you feel about FLYING VACCINES?::::    "The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded $100,000  each on Wednesday, October 22, 2008,  to scientists in 22 countries including funding for a Japanese proposal to turn mosquitos into "flying syringes" delivering vaccines.
          The charitable foundation created by the founder of software giant Microsoft said in a statement that the grants were designed to "explore bold and largely unproven ways to improve global health."
           The grants were awarded for research into preventing or curing infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis and limiting the emergence of drug resistance."
           Such a nice secure feeling, yes?  Knowing that you will be vaccinated if you venture into certain areas.....  And they think this is a good thing??   Sounds like:

         1984 (literally):   The Government of Canada had established the Dominion Parasite Laboratory in Belleville, Ontario, where it raised 100 million mosquitoes a month. These were shipped to Queen’s University and certain other facilities to be infected with a crystalline disease agent.
           The mosquitoes were then let loose in certain communities in the middle of the night, so that the researchers could determine how many people would become ill with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, which was the first disease to show.
          One of the communities they tested it on was the St Lawrence Seaway valley, all the way from Kingston to Cornwall, in 1984. They let out hundreds of millions of infected mosquitoes. Over 700 people in the next four or five weeks developed myalgic encephalomyelitis, or chronic fatigue syndrome.

         Or even earlier:  1953:    Testing Carcinogens over Winnipeg, Manitoba
          In 1953, the US Government asked the Canadian Government if it could test a chemical over the city of Winnipeg.   It was a big city with "500,000 people, miles from anywhere."
          The American military sprayed this carcinogenic chemical in a 1,000%-attenuated form, which they said would be so watered down that nobody would get very sick; however, if people came to clinics with a sniffle, a sore throat or ringing in their ears, the researchers would be able to determine what percentage would have developed cancer if the chemical had been used at full strength.
          We located evidence that the Americans had indeed tested this carcinogenic chemical — zinc cadmium sulphide — over Winnipeg in 1953. We wrote to the Government of Canada, explaining that we had solid evidence of the spraying and asking that we be informed as to how high up in the government the request for permission to spray had gone. We did not receive a reply.

           Shortly after, the Pentagon held a press conference on May 14, 1997, where they admitted what they had done. Robert Russo, writing for the Toronto Star11 from Washington, DC, reported the Pentagon’s admission that in 1953 it had obtained permission from the Canadian Government to fly over the city of Winnipeg and spray out this chemical — which sifted down on kids going to school, housewives hanging out their laundry and people going to work.
           US Army planes and trucks released the chemical 36 times between July and August 1953. The Pentagon got its statistics, which indicated that if the chemical released had been full strength, approximately a third of the population of Winnipeg would have developed cancers over the next five years

    OH  NO!   INTERNAL  Backups:   A good friend of mine was using an "Internal Backup" system.  This means, that a program would create a back up of her files -- to a section on her hard drive.   Guess what.   The computer  really crashed and the data on that drive was toast.  Guess what else.  So was the backup.  It's kind of like keeping a spare key to your car -- in your glove box in case you lock your keys in the car or something like that.  ...   It's kind of like, sawing off a tree limb, while you are sitting at its edge. .... PLEASE --- use EXTERNAL backups -- these means backing up your files to DVDs or an EXTERNAL hard drive.  You don't need to back up your programs every time, but the data files are the important ones, such as your documents, address lists, saved emails, spreadsheets and so on.   If you are comfy with your computer you can use COPY.

    http://thebovine.wordpress.com/   This is a very impressive blog, created by one of our members.  It started off as a way to diarize what is taking place with Michael Schmidt's situation regarding real milk.   That is still the main focus.  However, the consistency and quality of the material on the site is always quite high.  It's also well balanced visually and eye catching.  And, the photos are crisp and clear.   The quality of this blog continues to improve exponentially.  Do visit it often.

    /www.redflagdeals.com/   Store owners are offering deeper discounts on sale items - "loss leaders"  to encourage shopping in their establishment.  More flyers are online now and online flyers generally appear Thursday evening for the following Friday-Thursday sales period.  It is easier now to surf for sales and deals, then shop.  Redflagdeals is one of many such sites.  You can google for more.

    For Interesting online audio lectures, since fall 2005:
    The Royal Canadian Institute (RCI) for the Advancement of Science is the oldest scientific society in Canada.  This not-for-profit organization was founded in Toronto in 1849 by a small group of civil engineers, architects and surveyors led by Sandford Fleming (1827-1915).  The RCI encourages the general advancement of the Physical Sciences, the Arts and Manufactures...and promotes...Surveying, Engineering and Architecture...”  Today, the RCI enhances public awareness about science in several ways, although it is best known for its public lectures, held on Sunday afternoons in the fall and winter at the University of Toronto. The speakers come from many scientific disciplines, and audience participation is encouraged through a question period and opportunity for discussion with the speaker after the lectures.  Membership in the RCI is open to anyone.
