WEDNESday, November 12, 2003 (See last page for information)
from Penryn, California, will speak to us on:
"The Healing Power of the Mind"
Gathering, Socializing, Registration, at 6:30 p.m., Program to begin at 7:00 p.m.
[No Dowsing Practice before this meeting.
YES, Please do bring Finger Food to enjoy refreshments at the end. We supply beverages]
at Edwards Gardens --- Civic Garden Centre
Leslie Street & Lawrence Avenue - SW Corner
Please do not wear Scents of any sort to our meeting. Dowsers are highly sensitive people.
First --- Thank you so much for volunteering to transcribe tapes. Cat Peever was the first to step forth and she has been making headway with Robert Gilbert's and David Icke's tapes. Interesting, in that Cat is legally blind. She's having a great time doing this and has come close to offering to pay us for the privilege of doing this. One gains an awful lot by transcribing the words of these speakers. Many thanks, too, to Lynn Simpson and Ann Ford (who else???) who offered transcribing services. After we wear Cat out. ....
Next --- Taking TTC home FROM Edwards Gardens --- TTC riders said the trip home from our October meeting at Edwards Gardens was much better than anticipated. During the announcements I asked if anyone would be willing to drop folks off at a subway stop. About a half dozen of you volunteered, and stood up so that those who would like rides could notice you and approach you after the presentation. THANK YOU: Helga Riemer, Eva Angyal, Rick Roocroft, Gerry Burghmann, ... who else? We will do this at every meeting. If there is better way to arrange rides, please let me know. A few TTC riders called me to let me know this worked out quite well, despite the construction on Yonge Street... To those folks who received rides: Would you please contact me to let me know who gave you the rides? I don't know if I'm missing anyone and would like to acknowledge those who have helped out.
Your Snazzy Jazzy New Membership Cards --(as below):
Here's the evolution of our membership cards: They started out as 5" x 8" index cards printed, then cut in half and trimmed all around. Your names were written in. This is what we did for our first 2 years. Lorenza Campagnolo kept trying to convince me to get the sheet fed business cards from my favorite store, Staples. It only took me 6 months to hear her.
Year 3 I used those sheet fed cards, using a template, typing your names in for each sheet of 10. The activities of maybe 3 members made it important to add the stuff on the back.
Then Diana Atherton Davis created our wonderful logo. Of course it had to be incorporated. But how? As a watermark? I didn't know how to work with watermarks (still don't). How about making the logo a color, printing it on a color printer, as a background, then running it thru a laser printer with the membership info. So that's what we did. Thank you to Joey Korn and Audrey Chin for trying to help me with it and to Inta Ridler who was able to figure out what I was talking about and got me the green logos. Then we got a laminating machine on Ebay for $50 and your cards are now laminated! (It came with 200 plastics. When I finished the first box of 100, started on the second box I found out the plastics in the second box aren't quite the size they need to be. So, sorry, for those of you whose cards are not fully laminated. Don't want to waste them.)
PLEASE BRING YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARDS TO MEETINGS. IT MAKES IT MUCH EASIER, AND FASTER, FOR REGISTRATION. THANK YOU.
Labels (as above):
As part of our Water Project, and with what we learned from Dr. Masaru Emoto, we learned that writing words and sticking the words on a container, etc. (for water) can charge that water with the energy of those words. So we made up labels --- transparent labels --- that you can put on a water bottle, faucets, water pipes, etc., and change the energetics and structure of the water. At our meetings we sell 10 of these for $1. The scanned image above has shaded areas on 3 of the labels. That is not on the labels. The shading is on the backing of the labels.
You may notice that this newsletter is shorter than the previous 7 have been. Mostly because we can not afford the longer ones. Some like this, some don't. Your $20 membership fee was set up to include the cost of an 8 page newsletter printing and mailing, library items, overhead. What evolved into a 44 page newsletter costs $1.02 for printing + $1.03 for mailing = $2.05. 10 per year = $20.50. A month ago Staples increased their per page printing costs from 2 cents to 3 cents per side (50% ^) which would bring that printing cost to $1.53.
$1,300 was spent in June on new library items. If you join/renew by Oct. 31 you receive a coupon for a guest, value $10.
At the bottom of the renewal form is a place where you can enter contributions, to help towards these expenses. I didn't want to raise membership rates as there are several who can not afford to pay more and I'd hoped that you might feel it was worth $5 or $10 more. Out of 120 new/renewals, 42 people donated an additional $878 which averaged out to an extra $7.30 per person. Thank you to the 3 families who were able to contribute an extra $100 to our efforts and all the others who gave us extra contributions. Because of who you are, I know you understand what we are doing here, and why.
Some of what was not included this month for the economical reasons expressed are: Health Hints, More of Robert Gilbert's information, principles behind the tower busters, more of Joey Korn's techniques and wisdom, a radio interview from David Icke, dowsing to learn how to use Chinese Elements (fire, air, earth, water), more on color healing, homeopathic color healing, uses of water, geopathic stress, the dowsing chakra, Dinshah and water, an excellent, natural unknown cancer preventive, etc.
To those of you who say that the newsletters are too long --- Yes, you are right. If it helps any --- this may be valuable information --- many tell me it is --- that can not be obtained in other ways. I am not going to do this forever. Like everything else in our lives that is temporal, appreciate it while we have it. This can continue another month, another 10 years. I don't know and I'm not planning on disappearing soon. I've had a compulsion to get out to you the material that has been delivered so far.
I tell you now --- these are --- the --- good ol' days.
Energy is cyclical. We went through a period of expansion. Expansion feels good. Now we are going through some contraction. Contraction does not feel so good. But you can't keep on expanding forever. Money is tighter. And, event attendance has changed, energies shifted around March/April. Some people who have attended every single meeting since we started have skipped 1, or 2 or 3. Why? There is an almost painful tug for our attention and time. We are all overloaded, have 4 choices of what to do in an evening when formerly there was one. Running, running, no time to think, to pause, to stop, to exhale.
When Pat Prevost presented to us in March, in the Astrology she presented, we were told that we have just about begun the information explosion. We haven't even really entered in to it yet --- can you believe it? Imagine when it really gets going. Please keep in mind the advice from Bill Askin --- that what we need to do is to focus on our Light Bodies. Much else is [planned] distraction. Even talk radio is talking about the seeming fact that we have so much less time. Take back your time. Take back your time to ponder, to spend time with your mind, with your spirit, your family. Take back the time to spend with yourself. Even if it means we don't see you one or 2 times. It's more important to listen to your internal voice and guidance than the external harangues.
WHAT WE DID:
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 BRUCE MAGILL, took us on a field trip to the Warsaw Caves near Peterborough. We thought we were going to the caves. Bruce told us that is not the part we want to go to for the power and energy. Instead, we went to an area in that park that is lesser visited and lesser known, the "Kettles". These Kettles are big indentations that do look like Kettles, which is why they are called Kettles. Only a handful of us showed up. It was a gorgeous day. Chris Evans drove up with me, it was a glorious drive and day and experience. I was lucky, and grateful, for Chris' company. I asked Bruce why we had a packed house for the Petroglyphs and a handful for the Caves. He said: The Petroglyphs is a high energy place, you get energy. Here, what you do is get rid of your stuff. People don't want to do that, so they subconsciously decide not to come.
He showed us how to get in to the Kettles and what to do. When you get in to these structures, you find the door (by dowsing) and enter it at that place. In the first kettle, you clean off your outside junk, in the 2nd one, you are getting rid of deeper debris. We could all feel changes going on. Good thing Bruce brought a rope so we could lower ourselves in to the corkscrew of the 2nd kettle.
We ate lunch at picnic tables on the river. I don't remember when I've been to a sweeter place in Ontario than that riverbank. Bruce gave us a demonstration of his hypnotherapy methods. THANK YOU, Bruce!
On the way back, Chris and I stopped at Odyssey Books, in Ajax, near the 401 and Brock Road. Odyssey Books is owned by Debbie Purvis, one of our members. Debbie carries an impressive selection of books, gemstones, gifts, music, videos --- their selection is huge. Huge enough so she had to open up a 2nd store almost next door to the original one. She also sponsors courses and other special events. Odyssey Books is a very good resource to Ajax, the Holistic Community and the Toronto Dowsers. Hope you make it out there some day.
SEPTEMBER 22 - 8 PM - Call To Action --- to Raise Consciousness. This was our quarterly consciousness raising. Several of us went to the Mound. It was very windy, rainy, chilly evening. Unpleasant weather. Still, 11 of us braved the elements to go to the Mound. We were going to meet in the restaurant, but it was closed. So, to let others in our group know that at least one Toronto Dowser was there I sat in my car with the headlights and interior lights on, hoping that at least folks who came would see me. This was in an empty expanse of the big parking lot. A white van pulls up, parks 3 feet from my car, blocking my view of the entrance to the parking lot. A man is just sitting there, smoking a cigarette. It was quite weird and a bit unsettling. Later on I found out that this parking lot is, after dark, a trolling place for homosexuals. I am glad I was not this man's type.
We gathered on the mound and by 8 p.m. were fully involved in our consciousness raising, 11 people, in a circle. And, as the raindrops are falling we realized we could --- and did --- program the raindrops so that as every raindrop falls, it raises consciousness. The rain turned out to be a blessing, so we could do this. And there was a lot of it. The rain became heavy, but what we were doing was so good, we did not want to leave. It was cold but we were experiencing a shared energetic warmth, and joy. When the skies really opened up, we left.
I drove from the mound to Pat Bianchi's home to give her the newsletters for stuffing and mailing. 5 minutes later the phone rings. It's Raymon Grace! Before I left my place for the mound, I made a mental note that I needed to speak with Raymon. Something told him to call Pat's house. He checked on our Consciousness Raising and said we did a good job. This was not just our group of 11, of course. This is all of us. All the Toronto Dowsers. Raymon thanks you for doing this. He says we are making a difference.
SEPTEMBER 27 & 28 - Tower Busters Workshop --- It looked kinda rainy for the workshop so holding it was tentative. The skies cleared an hour before we were to start, so we went ahead with about 20 people, half the group. The rest came the next day. Good thing it happened that way so things could get organized. Many devices were made that weekend. Some people even got started on Chem Busters. Steve, Carmen or I will be in touch for the next step(s). We have been delayed because of our own time constraints.
I have spoken with 6 people who told me their own personal experiences, that when they place an energy device some place that within a very short time a craft, most often helicopter --- yes a black one, in Canada &/or the US --- shows up --- very close. The energetic grid of the earth is being very carefully monitored.
October 4- Pat Prevost had her first Spirit of Wellness Fair in Aurora. Lots of Toronto Dowsers stopped by. Pat, Wafik Raouf and Sharon Russell had displays. I saw Diana Davis, Nora McRoberts and Shirley Weidermeyer there. An excellent start for the first year, Pat. Please invite us back next year to this friendly high quality event.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8th
When we first started to find out about Harmonic Concordance, in February, we had no idea it would become as big as it has. Probably anyone who is connected to any holistic group anywhere has heard about it from several sources by now. It seemed to be relatively quiet until mid September at which time the awareness of it and preparations for HC developed huge mass and speed.
The awareness of it began in 1998 when astrologer John Mirehiel discovered the astrological configuration of the Grand Sextile (Star of David) which is unique in 4,000 years.
The highlights are:
* The astrological chart forms a perfect Star of David
* There is a full lunar eclipse (the last in a series of 3)
* All the stargates will be lined up
(See the Sep2003 newsletter for a big explanation of the HC.)
Mary Hardy teaches us that it is the responsibility of dowsers to protect and maintain the grids of the earth. This is one of our key responsibilities at that time. She is speaking to us Oct. 29 on how to prepare for this event. By the time you get this newsletter, she will have presented to us. I spoke with her today, Oct. 25 and this is some of what she said:During this astrological formation, during the actual time of total darkness of the lunar eclipse (~8:06-8:31 PM), the planet will go in to a frequency where the whole grid shuts down and people can manipulate what goes on in the grid. It is very VERY VERY VERY important what we do, what we think, what we say. We can help to give the planet an opportunity to raise consciousness.
Only 2% of the population of the world are ready for this. We have to be coached on what to do, organize for this in small groups. We have to get that frequency out there.
The 2 things we should do are on / at:
November 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 --- greet the dawn with focused intent of peace and love
- AND -
What we do during the actual time of the full eclipse. (about 25 minutes)
Please do take part --- This is the minimum we ask of you: using "just" your intent and energies, focusing on love and peace, at when the sun strikes the horizon at dawn November 8 and between 8-8:30 PM. If you want to do more, suggestions follow:
For a more complete listing of suggestions for us, and other groups, go to:
TORONTO DOWSERS HARMONIC CONCORDANCE EVENT
There are 2 groups in Toronto and 1 in Mississauga - see: SCHEDULE , search for Toronto --- who are having an event. One takes place at Metro Hall, 55 John Street Saturday Night and is the The Mt. Fuji World Peace Prayer and Mudra Ceremony. The World Puja Organization is also offering suggestions.
(1) Greet the dawn --- when the sun strikes the horizon, facing the sun --- especially on November 8, with intent of peace and love in your heart and for all humanity. See the web page set up for this for additional intentions for that time, and, for what you can do --- and why --- the mornings of Nov. 9-12.
(2) November 8, when the full eclipse starts until it ends --- find the time for your area:
Repeat the Cathar Creed (below)
Create the Vortex of the Holy Grail (see website)
The energetic grid of the earth is open at this time for programming. We are getting the energies back in to the grid and helping to awaken the planet.It has no membership, save those who know they belong,From Sky and Telescope Magazine: - Total Eclipse of the Moon, November 8–9, 2003
It has no rivals because it is non competitive.
It has no ambition - it seeks only to serve.
It knows no boundaries, for nationalisms are unloving.
It is not of itself because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions.
It acknowledges all great teachers of all the ages who have shown the truth of love.
Those who participate, practice the truth of love in all their being.
There is no walk of life or nationality that is a barrier.
Those who are, know.
It seeks not to teach, but to be, and by being, enriched.
It recognizes that the way we are may be the way of those around us because we are that way.
It recognizes the whole planet as a being of which are a part.
It recognizes that the time has come for the supreme transmutation, the ultimate alchemical act of conscious change of the ego in to a voluntary return to the whole.
It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice, but in the subtle realms of loving.
It salutes all those in the past who have blazoned the path, but have paid the price.
It admits no hierarchy or structure, for no one is greater than another.
Its members shall know each other by their deeds and being, and by their eyes and by no other outward sign, save the fraternal embrace.
Each one will dedicate their life to the silent loving of their neighbor and environment, and the planet, will carry out their task, however exalted or humble.
It recognizes the supremacy of the great idea, which may only be accomplished if the human race practices the supremacy of love.
It has no reward to offer, either here or in the hereafter, save that of the ineffable joy of being and loving.
Each shall seek to advance the cause of understanding, doing good by stealth and teaching only by example.
They shall heal their neighbor, their community and our planet.
They shall know no fear and feel no shame and their witness shall prevail over all odds.
It has no secret, no arcanum, no initiation, save that of true understanding of the power of love and that, if we want it to be so, the world will change, but only if we change.
All who belong, belong; they belong to the Church of Love.

We are not having a big organized event and it is strongly urged and suggested that you do gather with others, in groups. You might want to go to the Lake. Or to the Mound. For suggestions for your ceremony, go to: CEREMONY .
If you do not want to do the above, perhaps follow the suggestions of John and Jan Mireheil who request that during those times you offer prayers for the realization of Peace, Love, Joy, and Healing around and for the Planet. And, that you focus on enfolding these prayers into a request for:
If there is something about the Harmonic Concordance that speaks to you, then speak of that when you talk to others. Those who can hear the heart will hear.
- The activation of Unity Consciousness: Experience being one with All Creation. We are One.
- The Ascension of Mother Earth: Visualize her expansion into a higher state of awareness, in which she is able to create a harmonious ecological balance that benefits her well-being and that of all of her children.
- The Self Realization of all Hu-manity: that each of us, in this moment and beyond, realizes our inborn divinity and and that we live as the Godlings we are - 24/7.
The Harmonic Concordance represents a moment when people around the world are coming together to pray for the upliftment of humanity and the earth.
The moment of this gathering will be during the full moon eclipse of November 8, when 6 planets that represent personal choices will be in a Star of David configuration at that same time. Looking at these and other factors many, many astrologers agree that this is a very fortunate time, when a huge outpouring of divine grace will occur.
The Harmonic Concordance is about an ideal of walking in harmony with self and all those selves we call other. One of the best definitions we have heard of Concordance says "coming together by prior agreement" This time Right Now is about coming together in wholeness, first as an individual, and then as part of the greater collective, which needs your wholeness in order to be whole.
Perhaps Hank Wessleman sums it up best:
"--Modern mystics share a strong sense of hope and faith that as people move into and rediscover their connection with the spiritual worlds, a change will occur within us -- one that will spread far beyond ourselves and will make the world a better, safer place to live -- one that will enable peace to break out and become the dominant reality paradigm "
Ultimately, The Harmonic Concordance is about a choice you must make for yourself, but it is a choice that often has to be made on a moment to moment basis. On a personal level Will and Emotions, Conflict and Forgiveness, Punishment and Redemption are typical states that we must balance inwardly. So we say, don't wait for November 8, Do it NOW.
In the ONE heart,
Jan and John
From the World Puja Organization:
The interaction of this significant planetary alignment at the moment of the eclipse combines to produce a powerful alchemical transformation offering the opportunity for both personal and planetary shifts in consciousness.
This is an immensely powerful vibrational activation that many throughout the planet see as a major interdimensional gateway fulfilling ancient prophecies from different traditions and ushering in a new activation of energy upon the Earth.
Because of the enormity of this cosmological event, the Harmonic Concordance, which some are comparing to the Harmonic Convergence and the 11:11, there are literally thousands of websites with differing information about this important time. There are also events occurring throughout the world to help usher in this new energy. There are many perspectives and belief systems available with varying agendas attached to them. Because of this, we do not feel it necessary to provide more information, except to say that projecting Light & Love through Sound together at 8:13 PM NY Time on November 8, 2003 will be particularly beneficial for personal and planetary consciousness activation.
There are prophecies that say that if 144,000 sound together, a new era of consciousness may be issued in. Perhaps this is the time!

The Tuesday, January 13, 2004 meeting: Ross Andaloro, of Vancouver will be coming to speak to us that night and give us a mini workshop on "How to Use a Pendulum to Contact the Subconscious".
Ross says: "Your subconscious was programmed by your basic responses to experiences you had from the time you were newly born until the present. The programs with the greatest impact consist of your first experiences and thus reflect your view of life from birth to almost 4 years of age." Find out more about this in the December and January newsletters and how Ross plans to show us how to recognize and change or delete outdated programming. Due to the special nature of this evening, this program will be longer than usual. This will all be explained by the January newsletter.

November Newsletter Theme
Due to reports and commentary coming in all in one week at the beginning of October, the theme for this November issue seemed to take form. Death. I mentioned this 'coincidence' to one of you, one of my most sensitive councillors and you said "Good. We better get prepared because although most of us will be okay, a lot of people we love will be taken off the planet." I don't know if I believe that. I surely don't want to believe it, but if I believe it or not, my belief doesn't matter, I guess, to what will be. I received so many emails and phone calls expressing gratitude for the write up of Ruth's talk, that helped them deal with difficult situations losing loved ones, and I guess it heightened my awareness, so here it is:
"My Auntie Vera was not a church-goer having given up on religion as a child. She loved Bingo, a good laugh, a cigarette or two if no one was looking and after my uncle died she became very partial to a tipple of whisky when she was ‘in company’. On my rare visits to England I always bought a bottle and a pack of cigarettes and pretended to smoke and enjoy the taste of whisky with her as we giggled and gossiped like school girls.
(1) In conversation, Angi Venning, just happened to talk about her Aunt Vera who had an NDE:
Vera’s health plummeted in her 80's and she was in and out of hospital like a yo-yo. I called her one day to explain the healing work I now did for a living; how I was sending her Reiki and dowsing adjustments and it how it worked ‘just like a long distance call’. This concept seemed to make sense to her and we branched into the subject of God and death for the first time. It was not long after this conversation that we nearly lost her in an emergency operation where she’d been proclaimed clinically dead for a short time. When we spoke again she said “You know you don’t have to worry about me any more!” She went on to explain that she was no longer afraid of death, in fact she was quite looking forward to it now she knew what it was like.
Her experience was one of being surrounded and uplifted by light and lightness into exquisite green, flower filled meadows. Just on the edge of her perception and out of sight, familiar people were communicating love and she felt great joy. There was a sense that they had a highly humorous disclosure they wished to share and they could hardly contain themselves because it was not yet the right time to reveal it.
Now she’s gone I envision her in fields of flowers, giggling over something endlessly amusing. I believe the vision or concept of humor after death was sent to comfort her to eclipse the stern, grim God of her childhood as a minister’s daughter and ready her for the next installment."
(2) Annabelle Garland announced her new practice ---- Grief Counselling:
Annabelle Garland B.A. C.G.T. C.B.E., Certified Grief Therapist and Bereavement Educator announces ...... Grief Counselling to support individuals in the grief process.
The loss of a loved one is an overwhelming and confusing experience. Grief involves complex emotions and affects the whole person, body, mind and spirit. Reconciling to the loss and building a new life can be both painful and frightening for those who are left behind. In addition many individuals today have limited support networks and find themselves lost or isolated. Grief counselling provides guided support and empathy to the bereaved to encourage healthy grieving. It supports individuals to accept and experience the loss of their loved one and adjust to new circumstances. Grief counselling services are available to individuals, couples, families, and to those coping with a serious illness.
Bereavement Education - to educate and provide insight into the needs of the bereaved
How grief is experienced depends on a number of factors. While it is always a unique and personal experience for the individual, there are some common elements. Increasing your awareness of the grief process and the factors that influence grief may help you cope or be better able to understand and support individuals who are grieving. Information and education sessions are available to individuals and groups and can be tailored to the needs of the group. Topics include the predominant attitudes and common myths about grief, the grief journey and how to support it. Interested persons may include family members, people who work with dying, church groups and service organizations.
Annabelle is a certified bereavement therapist and bereavement educator in private practice. She received post graduate training with the Canadian Centre for Bereavement Education and The University of Toronto. She is a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists. She is also a member of the Ontario Bereavement Network and the Association of Death Education and Dying. Annabelle volunteers with the Survivor Support Program of the Toronto Distress Centre which provides supportive counselling to survivors of trauma, homicide and suicide and with Bereaved Families of Ontario's Toronto office as a professional advisor. Annabelle has three decades experience working in the areas of human services, health care and women's issues. Her decision to specialize in grief work is a result of her own experience following the death of her husband several years ago.
For an appointment or more information contact Annabelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-489-4676. Her office is located at Yonge and Eglinton.
(3) Pat Prevost said she may be unable to attend some meetings because she is taking a hospice course.
(4) Dannion Brinkley's name came up several times. Dannion died twice, after having been struck by lightening twice. The first time was in 1975 and he was on the other side for over 20 minutes. His books "Saved By the Light" and "At Peace in the Light" (both are excellent and available in the Toronto Public Library) describe what happened and what he saw and learned. Today, he helps terminally ill people, counselling them about what to expect.
(5) My sister Debra told me of the community work she volunteered for after our dad died: Chevra Kadisha --- volunteers in some communities (Jewish) who prepare the dead for burial.
The truest Jewish act of kindness that can never be repaid is honoring the dead. Chevra Kadisha volunteers provide the important service of making sure that Jewish individuals are properly prepared for burial and are properly attended to until internment.
Chevra Kadisha means "Sacred Society," but it is more commonly translated as "Jewish Burial Society." The tradition of having a Chevra Kadisha goes back more than 2000 years. As Jewish communities formed throughout the world, a Chevra Kadisha was one of the first groups to be organized in each community. It was, and is, considered a great honor to be a member, and its work is considered nothing less than holy. Their work is called the ultimate good deed, since they can never be repaid for their kindness.
The primary function of a Chevra Kadisha is the preparation and burial of the deceased in accordance with Jewish law. The three major aspects of the work are: maintaining a vigil so that the deceased's body is never left alone (it is designed to comfort the soul before it ascends to heaven); the preparation of a deceased's body involving washing and dressing, by someone of the same gender, accompanied by prayers seeking forgiveness from the deceased and asking for eternal peace, and clothing the body in shrouds of simple, hand-made, white linen.
My sister says this makes her feel good that she can help out in the community. Of course I ask how can she do this. She is a Special Education teacher and in her job she deals with challenged people and their bodily functions that most people have a hard time confronting. Its not a difficult job for her, so its a way she can contribute. She doesn't have any fear of the dead, doing this does not frighten her. It needs to be done, she can do it, so she does.
The body has to be washed in a certain way, on a special board, with water only, 7 pitchers full, starting at the head, letting the water flow down to the toes. While you are pouring the water you are saying a prayer over and over again. The body gets dried well, then it is dressed in a special shroud in a ritual fashion. There is a draw string around the pants, the top has to get tucked in to the pants and the string is not knotted. Tiny twigs are weaved in between the fingers, ...
(6) This just came out of the Oct. 14-21 ASD Conference in Flagstaff, Arizona, about well known dowser HOMER HEFTY. This message was written by Ed Stillman, the president of their chapter.
"Homer Hefty Made His Transition Home to the Light on March 29, 2003: Homer was the outstanding water dowser in southern Arizona and had dowsed many wells. He was also active in ASD and was the past President of the Tucson Chapter. Homer was always interested in the metaphysical, especially the mysteries of life and death. He studied under Walter Russell while he was in the Army.
His wife Marge said, "Homer was always helping new dowsers. When we would take a dowsing call for water or geomancy, part of the deal was to train that person in the art of dowsing. A saying that Homer paraphrased was, give a thirsty man a drink and he will be thirsty tomorrow. Teach him how to dowse and he will always have water. The H L Hefty Scholarship Fund has been started at the Tucson Chapter.
Ellie Drew, who leads a group on conscious change, began a prayer circle to pray for Marge. As they began, the group noticed a bright, square, short light near four dowsers in the group. Ellie heard the words, "I'm alive. Tell them I'm alive. Thank you." The dowsers confirmed it was "Homer".
A few nights later, on April 13, Ellie was in meditation and "Homer" showed up. "I watch over her (Marge) when she sleeps. I hold her. Tell her I love her. Tell her I'm sorry I had to leave, but I never wanted to leave her. I'm more comfortable here now. It's not at all like I thought it would be. There are no words I could give you to describe it. It would be like trying to describe God. Words miss the fullness, the completeness, of being here so that any sense of "here" would be missed. Words are like describing a dot in a painting. Is it part of the painting? Yes, of course, but it is so little, you would never know what the picture was from one dot. And this painting would have to be bigger than the whole world."
"What is relevant is that I'm alive, and to let you know I'm okay. Tell them sound is important, more than light. Inner sounds. Sound is everywhere here. There you hear a tone or piano key played and you hear one note. Here, there isn't such a thing. The only equivalent would be if the global population were playing in an orchestra. That is one tone here. Using the inner tones accesses/brings through healing from here. It will heal sadness, depression, broken bones. The inner tones heal by focusing your intention like a laser. I have to go now. Tell Marge I love her." Marge says, "If this letter stretches your beliefs outside the box, go with what seems right to you."
With great shock and sadness, I regret to report the death of another one of our champions, Frank Ludde, Thursday, October 9th. You have seen Frank's name several times in our newsletters, including the last 2 announcing his October 10 presentation on "the Prevention of Cancer and Most Other Diseases" sponsored by the Consumer Health Organization. For those of you who took Raymon's workshop in April, Frank was the man who found the information about the Command Centre of the Brain --- this is where every single imbalance (disease, condition, etc.) comes from. He was a genius when it came to having an understanding of how the human body truly works, and a genius and strong intuitive when it came to healing and curing seriously ill people. He cured people who had situations that the "medical community" claimed to be incurable: Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, Lou Gehrig's Disease, etc., and all kinds and stages of cancer. He did this through a system he developed of super nutrition, depending on the situation of his client. He was kind and warm and generous and truly trying to help everyone whenever the need presented itself.
When I first met Frank, 6 or 7 years ago I asked him: "Frank, how can you do this? How can you --- a person with no medical initials after your name --- stand up in a public venue and firmly declare "I can cure cancer." How can you do that without any concern of incarceration? He looked me straight in the eye and said "Because I have healed family members at the highest political levels in BC and Canada."
Frank was extremely healthy. He was taking care of himself. He knew how to do it. He looked great. The way he allegedly died seems peculiar for a man with his knowledge, ability, practice and in his condition. And the timing --- just before he is supposed to come to our city to talk to a large audience about how to prevent cancer --- using nutrition. The news about Frank came as a brutal shock. It also doesn't sit right with anyone in our group and outside of it that I have spoken with.
2 geniuses, 2 brilliant, kind, warm generous men who deeply loved their families and who had natural ways to get and stay healthy are now prematurely dead. George Merkl and Frank Ludde. George had a cure for cancer years ago. He was told by the FDA to put the genie back in the bottle, and, they also commented to him on his nice young family. George destroyed all his products and notes.
Other health champions: Hulda Clark, Ed McCabe --- are beset by trumped up legal problems. But what they do is they are in the public eye, they write books, they speak. George and Frank did not do a lot of that.
My blessings for the soul and spirit of Frank Ludde and condolences to his 2 young children who he loved very much and tried so hard to have close to him.
The Consumer Health Organization is one of, if not the most important organization in Canada, the US -- North America and possibly beyond. A lot more important than the UN. They are undergoing financial difficulties. They were also going to benefit by receiving some of the proceeds from Frank's presentation.

Our October Presentation: Joey Korn
"Joey Korn" week got off to a stormy start, when I received a call at 11 a.m. from Joey's wife Jill, to say that his flight was delayed in Augusta due to mechanical problems. He was supposed to land in Buffalo at noon, finally drove out of the BUF airport at 5 pm in high winds, pouring rain and made it to the 7 pm L Rods workshop at 8:15..
Remember a description around June about John Tonin and the mantras he teaches? Speaking with John, he gave me a mantra that could slow down time. I tried doing it for Joey. It didn't work for his trip to the workshop, but it worked for mine.
Joey gave an L Rod workshop Tuesday (10/14) nite. Thursday morning, he was interviewed for Aurora Cable TV by Jill Hewlett. The show will air Oct 29, 30 and 31 and we expect to get copies of the show for our library. Thursday evening he gave our presentation and a workshop on the weekend. The rest of the time he was busy with private sessions, arriving back in Augusta Wed (10/22) nite.
I've known Joey for 4 years. There was a marked change in his work even since I saw him this past June at ASD. A deepening, a maturity that took him to another level. I've been receiving glowing grateful feedback from those of you who took his workshop, heard his talk, had a private session about the valuable help / information you too, received or noticed. 3 people repeated the workshop and we noticed that although much of the material was similar, it seemed like a totally different workshop.
We brought in a professional videographer who taped the presentation and the workshop as Joey expects to use this for a training film.
Nancy and Frank Thomas and their friend Ella, from Edgar Cayce Canada came all the way from the Owen Sound area to see Joey. Joey gave a presentation at the A.R.E. in Houston in September. Many of us like Edgar Cayce's work (his biography, "There is a River", by Thomas Sugrue, was the first book I read on the holistic path. It jumped off the shelf in to my hands in 1981 in the Dover, Vermont library.) Visit their website, often, and we will let you know of some of the future events they sponsor in our area. Thank you for visiting us!
Joey spoke about his growing working relationship with his colleague and friend, Robert Gilbert, of Asheville, North Carolina. Robert, scholar and expert in Sacred Geometry, will be here in the spring. God created the universe with Sacred Geometry. The Tree of Life is the basis of it all.
He also speaks about his favorite author, Walter Russell. (Russell's book, "The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe", which Joey sells for $8 CDN, but ran out of them, is one of those "must reads".) Russell was the Leonardo da Vinci of the 20th Century, and says that the entire physical universe is one expanding vortex.
Joey changed my understanding and "feel" for dowsing. It was a big AH HA moment when I realized I knew what I knew. It's simple, changed my dowsing, my accuracy and I hope in sharing it with you it will help you, too:When we are dowsing for water, we are not actually dowsing for the physical substance of the water. We are dowsing for the [subtle] energy field (of the water). And, when we ask for data such as how deep, how many gallons per minute, etc., we are dowsing for the information that is in that energy field. Energy fields contain information. If we realize we are tuning in to energy fields, we can become more aware and sensitive. It's not the water, it's not the substance. It's the energy field.Dowsing is a sacred process using sacred tools to help us to tune in to God's light with a capital "L", to tune in to the subtle energies that are everywhere around us and in us.
Divining is using this dowsing process to tune in to the Divine, to draw yourself ever closer to your potential to the creator. Joey says "I feel I'm using Divining".
It's amazing what you can do with a pair of 'bent wires' (L Rods). It's a way to tune in to God's Light.
Wherever you sit, anywhere, you leave a cosmic trail of energy. This cosmic trail can be found with rods.
Subtle energies are energies that are everywhere around us, in us. They are tangible. We still can not detect it through electronics. Science can not yet detect the human related energies --- and they are there. When we can scientifically validate these energies it will bring science and spirituality closer together.
Detrimental (inharmonious) energies weaken us. Over a long term they will make us ill.
Beneficial (harmonious) energies strengthen our bodies, help us heal, help us to take charge of our lives.
The fields that carry the energies are ultimately neutral. The purpose of an energy field is to carry energy.
The energy of the underground streams is here to support us, too. When you dowse for water, for underground streams and you get a reaction, it is not to the physical substance, but to its energy field. It is tangible, it can affect us.I have been "logically thinking" of dowsing as 'chunking down', asking questions with a yes/no answer. I asked Joey about this. He said that what he is does is detect energies.When you say "show me the main sewer pipe from the house", somehow your 'mind' knows the frequency range of the pipe.
You are the radio. You tune it in with your intent. You are tuning your "mind" to the frequency range and you use the rods like antennas.
God, the Kaballah, the Tree of Life:
God has an inherent desire to share its light.
God has an inherent desire to impart its light.
God created us as vessels to receive God's light
When you are inspired what you are literally getting is --- a flash of inspiration --- a flash of light.
God gave us an inherent desire to receive God's light.
We have free will.
God gave us an inherent desire to share God's light.
When we receive the light, we desire to receive more. Then we want to share it with others, to impart it.
Kaballah is an oral teaching, an understanding, of the way life works. It is a cosmology. It was given to Moses at Mount Sinai as a spiritual understanding of the first 5 books of the bible. It is the real spiritual meaning of the coded words that we read. It is older than Moses.
Moses was given the revealed (the first 5 books of the Bible) and the hidden Torah (Kaballah). Moses taught it to Joshua, Joshua taught it to his sons. Abraham was well versed in Kaballah and taught it to his sons. Adam is the living embodiment of Kaballah. It is the way God created the universe and it sustains the universe. Everything in physical creation is patterned after the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life sometimes shows the figure of a man on it: Adam Kadmon. This is primordial. It is the only, barest hint of a human figure in Judaism. It is the bridge between man and God.
The core of Kaballah is the Tree of Life.
The 10 centers represent the 10 attributes of God in man.
It is an abstract symbol to help us understand spiritual understanding in practical ways.
The Tree of Life is repeatedly found in not only in human energies but also in earth energies.
Energy Fields: The energy field expands infinitely in all directions. Every plant, every animal, every blade of grass, every person's energy in the world is in this room, now, with us.
We charge the energies around us with every thought ever action every moment. We change the frequencies we vibrate at at every given moment. Everything we think, say and do is recorded in time and space. It continues to affect you.
The more you understand the process, the more you can take charge of the process. The way you take charge of the process is with intent, prayer and dowsing.
As you have joyful energies (emotions), nature supports you by bringing you beneficial energies. As you have negative emotions, nature supports you by creating detrimental energies. This is going on all the time, behind the scenes in life, whether you know it or not. As people change, our thoughts and emotions, the energy field fluctuates.
We are vessels, objects, to hold energy. The energy field itself is neutral.
The energy field is a vessel. It carries energies that are beneficial (and healing) or discordant to us. Saying a prayer changes the energy in that vessel.
Your energy field is more accurately a vortex, a spiraling energy field of alternating positive and negative bands.
Your body is a battery.
Negative thinking discharges it.
Negative thinking weakens our bodies and contracts our energy fields.
Positive thinking strengthens our bodies and expands our energy fields.
Any subtle energy field that weakens us, a prayer will strengthen.
Imagine a motel room, or a hospital room --- sick person after sick person imprinting their patterns. The patterns are not permanent, but they are indefinite, until something changes them.
Joey learned about dowsing energy fields through Sig Lonegren's book "Spiritual Dowsing". (You can download this book for free on Internet.)
Joey does not want to do anything through will power. He wants to have the desire to do what he feels he needs to do. He asks God "Send in the energies to help me know what to do." Joey used this in a practical way for himself when he lost a lot of weight. It was not difficult for him to do because he asked for the energies to be sent in to help him lose weight and he was led to the Atkins diet. He has gone from 195 to under 170 pounds, his blood pressure is now low, heartburn is gone, daily headaches are gone and he no longer bites his nails. And he looks fabulous and is more energetic than ever. In this low carb diet, beer drinkers drink low carb beer. In Canada, Sleeman's Clear 2.5 (gms) - a new beer, in the US its: Michelob Ultra Lite (2.6) or Miller lite (3.2).
You need to learn how to focus your intent to bring what you want in life.
Whenever you ask for anything in prayer, it is there immediately. It may not manifest in the physical world until a later time. His dowsing is simple:
Show me various kinds of detrimental energy
Determine what kind it is
Pray to change it to be beneficial
Joey does not ask that energy be cleared or neutralized. He asks that it be made beneficial or balanced.
He finds that he blesses everything, when he takes a walk, if he sees a transformer for example, he will not necessarily bless the transformer but he blesses the field emanating from it.
When I told him about our Tower Buster project, his suggestion was that we bless the energy field of the cell tower, to charge it with beneficial energy to radiate out to the community.
We learned how to detect unbalanced energies, unbalanced patterns and bring them back in to balance. When you find an imbalance that someone has left on a location, eg., on a street corner, and you bring that pattern back in to balance, you help that person's karma.
Your issues are not just abstract concepts. They are real. They vibrate at a frequency. When you think of an unresolved issue, you vibrate at that frequency.
When Joey (or anyone) blesses an object for you, to help you help yourself deal with an unresolved issue, he is putting the inverse energy of the issue in the object when he blesses it. For example, the inverse of "3" is 1/3. 3 x 1/3 = 1. Any number times its inverse is "One". Wholeness. It brings it back to wholeness and balance.
When you wear the object, now blessed with the inverse energy, this triggers the energy of balance. When you think of the issue while wearing the object (a ring, a watch, glasses, etc.), the inverse energy gets triggered and brings you back in to balance.
If a lipstick is blessed, every time the lipstick is applied --- we do it with such concentration --- we are bringing energy back in to balance and wholeness.
He has a formula for his prayer that he adapts to the situation, where he is blessing (charging) the energy field. You can learn this from his book "Dowsing, A Path To Enlightenment", or from his workshop.
Joey says he came to this earth with a mission, to learn about the Tree of Life, to understand it at deeper and deeper levels, to reveal it appropriately to others. A lot of his life's purpose is to realize and impart that these teachings are real.
Joey is the one who gave us the Dowsers Prayer that we use at the beginning of our meetings. So in the announcements, I said that he would say it for us. About 10 minutes in to his presentation, I realized I forgot to remind him to say this and hoped he would offer it. 2 minutes later Joey says "Marilyn did not remind me to say the prayer..", and he offered it to us. On Friday, as I was walking home from errands, I remembered that Joey usually uses a CD player to play his CD for the "nap meditation" after lunch at his workshop and wondered if he had a CD player. When I arrived home, there was a message from Joey waiting for me, asking if I had a CD player I could bring. It was just about that time I was thinking about it.
It was a busy week, with a lot of arranging. And well worth all the effort. I guess I do enjoy grumbling about 'all the work' --- self imposed --- I do. Watching your faces Thursday night as you gathered around Joey, watching him dowse for unbalanced Human Energy Patterns on his floor chart --- watching you watch him, understanding, learning, appreciating --- reminded me again of why I do what I do. For me, that was the pay off. It may sound odd, but those who do volunteer work understand. For those who don't, helping people who benefit by your help --- if they tell you so or not --- is one of the greatest feelings in the universe. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to be of real service to you. (uh oh! What's happening to Marilyn? Has someone been slipping her niceness pills?)
During dinner at the Granite Brewery (that's where we had our video nights) his last night here, I was asking him about differences between expressing gratitude and saying blessings. When you bless a person or an object, you are dynamically charging that person or object with a beneficial energy. Gratitude is passive. I asked him about the Jewish blessings. Everything has to be blessed all the time in the Jewish religion. Every piece of food, every act, etc. A difference is, what is being said in Judaism is that God is being praised. A translation of one of the many blessings for the Passover is: "We praise You Adonai, our God ruler of the universe, for keeping us alive, sustaining us, and enabling us to reach this season." A person or object is not blessed. God is being blessed. I don't know if God needs our blessings. Our love maybe, but not our blessings.
We talked about blessing a person or object --- where what is happening is that the subtle energy field of that person or object is being charged with beneficial energies, and gratitude, and love and transforming energies, etc. I hope Joey writes an article on this some day soon because he has some pretty nifty insights to offer on this subject. And, the Toronto Dowsers has been exposed to all these tools so I hope we have some degree of comfort, experience and mastery and can use the appropriate tool at the appropriate time.
This was an exciting, rewarding and stimulating week where many benefited. Only a fraction of the wisdom we received is recorded on these pages. We thank Joey for coming to visit us and I thank you for creating the opportunity for us all to share in this knowledge.
Sometimes, when I think that what I'm about to say may be weird, I forget that to most people dowsing, itself seems weird. Because of subsequent events, I'm writing what I would have normally told to very few people [and did, at the time].
In May, I heard something from a very reputable source (unknown to you, I think) about an event that was to take place August 12, the 60th anniversary of the Philadelphia Experiment. I was told that the Andromedans (who are the police officers of the galaxy - I didn't know that either) don't like what's been going on, how our free will has been badly messed with. That on Aug. 12 they would remove all non beneficial ETs from the planet. Be prepared to see space ships in the sky. That's one of the reasons I went to Mary Hardy. I thought that would be a good place for it. Those of us who had heard this felt that it was more wishing it were so than a solid chance. But it didn't cost us anything. We didn't see any space ships. However, what happened 2 days later?
August 14: Blackout, Northeast US
August 28: Blackout, London, England
September 22: Blackout: Scandinavia (Denmark, Sweden, Greenland)
September 27: Blackout: Italy
There may be connections. Only recently did one of the 6 people I discussed this with pre August 12 draw my attention to this coincidence. If you have any info on this, please let me know.
Since many of you have taken the Light Language course and/or are interested in it, I'm including this piece I found poking around on the web. NESARA was talked about in the September newsletter. This is something useful to practice on. I suggest you look at this grid on the web, in color &/or have someone w a color printer print it out. The site for it, and some other very interesting and useful sites are:
FOURWINDS NESARA LL GRID LIZLIZ-LIGHT LANGUAGE EXP LL - HOW TO
Scan the grid from the lower left, going up the first column, then down second column, up third column, etc. until you finish by scanning up the last, or seventh column. Feel the grid in place in your heart, and radiate it forth.
These symbols of sacred geometry instruct the spiritual energies to precipitate into the matter - physical world in resonance with the intent of this grid, which is the announcement and implementation of NESARA.
“The National Economic Security and Reformation Act is Announced and Implemented Under God as United States of America law on, or before 15, December 2003.
This Light Language Grid was built on July 26, 2003, and has reached completion, and established, July 28, 2003. It took a period of three days for the energy to manifest and set the intent.
The grid is written with the date of 15, December 2003 for the purposes of being able to manifest this law from the etheric realm in the time of the will of the people. This is a proposed date that was inspired from the physical realm.
Any who wish to copy this grid in FULL COLOR are encouraged to do so to assist with the manifestation process; and to share this grid with those who will facilitate it for its purpose of bringing NESARA to full announcement and implementation. The color is imperative for the effectiveness of the grid to work."

Subject: dowsing news and water
My husband and I visit Northern Ireland frequently and have been in touch with people there who are also concerned with healing the waters. When we were there this Spring I took along some of our special water and sprinkled it is several of the healing wells as well as other locations including the Irish Sea. Many of the places were much cleaner than when we visited previously perhaps because a group had been in that area on just such a mission not long before. We're heading back in October so will be taking along more water.
Thank you for all your guidance. Blessings, Nora McRoberts

A few days ago, I returned home from visiting my native country, Latvia. It looks, that I missed many very interesting happenings, being away for the summer. In Latvia I had a bottle of ECH2O with me and had an opportunity to clean four rivers, two lakes and the Baltic Sea. I just hope, I did it in a appropriate manner. Using a small bobber ( from Alicja), I asked permission from the Cosmos and the body of water to be cleaned. After a "yes", I asked if there was any anger, pollutants etc., to be neutralised and there usually was. Then after asking the "Dowsing System" to banish the angry and negative spirits, scramble the negative life force and frequencies and adjust them to positive energies, I asked how many drops of the ECH2O were needed to pour into a half glass of spring water to clear the body of water. Each one required a different number. For example: the River "Daugava", which is the largest river in the Baltic, it starts its way in Russia, flows through Latvia and into the Baltic sea --- required 42 drops. After an affirmation and blessing, I then poured this energised water into the rivers and each one of them formed a different pattern. One of the lakes formed a cross, and one of the rivers that is very polluted and also empties into the Baltic sea, formed bunches of small bubbles that went around in circles before slowly dispersing. Since the Baltic sea is very polluted, I left a bottle of ECH20 with a local dowser in Riga and she promised to repeat the procedure before the rivers freeze.
Hope to see you all at the next meeting.
Love and best wishes, Marta.

I led my equinox group in a prayer to raise the consciousness of the planet, etc. We had about 30 people on a sacred site in Birmingham (Alabama). I like the idea of people all over the world focusing on raising consciousness at the Solstices and Equinoxes because the energy is so strong then. I'm glad I found out about it on the
Toronto Dowsers webpage.
May the morning star light your path,

Hope all is well with you Toronto Dowsers up there? Several of us "did our thing" on the appointed day ... some did smaller lakes, streams, etc. and I did Lake Ontario (at Barker, NY) and Dave was up on the Northeastern end I guess. We're continuing to distribute the ECH20 water to our members and will be explaining (at the next meeting) how to use it and giving out that paper with it...
Sometime ... I'd love to come up to one of your bigger meetings ... when you have "something special" going on? Please let me know. I'll check the Toronto Dowsers site to see what's coming up before bad weather sets in (if not, next Spring).
Thanks SO MUCH for the two bottles of ECH20 .... they've been put to good use. One of our members has been having well water problems (drinkable, useable) recently and so I told them to take a bottle of the "charged" water and dowse how much they should pour down the pipe (they have two wells) and see if it changed the QUALITY OF THE WATER for them ..... haven't heard back yet from them, but will see next meeting I think!
October 3, Raymon called to tell me that the newest (third) edition of his book, "The Future Is Yours: Do Something about It" is now available through Amazon! On Amazon.com the cost is USD $14.95. On Amazon.ca the cost is CDN $16.73.
The sales --- and the reading, of course ---- of this book can help raise the consciousness of humanity and raise the awareness of the benefits of dowsing. Raymon tells me there are a lot of good links to many groups, including the Toronto Dowsers in the Resources section in this new edition.
The book lists organizations as references; it includes a detailed pendulum dowsing chart; it gives step-by-step instructions in how to dowse for specific results and it's filled with Raymon's stories, great humor and keen insight. It's a meaningful addition to our personal libraries, a thoughtful gift and a valuable teaching tool for those who also do workshops to share this vital information.
Ralph Squire, President of the Mother Lode ASD Chapter in California, immediately ordered 50 copies for his chapter!
Jonna Rae Bartges, of La Costa, California is a friend of Raymon Grace and the person who connected with Chief Two Trees to get our quarterly Call To Action (for Raising Consciousness) started August 26, 2002 sent this announcement to Raymon's friends:

Subject: Raymon's book!
Greetings to Dowsers and Fellow Friends of Raymon in two countries!
My name is Jonna Rae, and I'm interested in helping Raymon get the word out about his important book, "The Future is Yours."
This new edition of the book he self-published a few years back is even more powerful, and has the potential to introduce masses of people to dowsing, healing, and making a positive difference in the world.
While some of the dowsing societies are offering the book on their websites, which is great, my goal is to get people to purchase the book off Amazon.com so we can push it into the "best seller" category. Because I'll be working to get Raymon interviewed in national print and broadcast media, if I can say his book is on the Amazon best-seller list, there will be a much greater chance journalists will be interested in talking with him.
With this goal in mind, I'm asking you to please order a copy yourself from Amazon.com, and help spread the word. We have an excellent chance of making this book a best seller if we get enough people excited about helping out. Imagine the positive difference we could all make if we can work together to help get Raymon's information to millions of people!!
Thank you so much for your consideration. If it feels right to you, please get involved. I appreciate your consideration. And please be assured -- I do not work for Amazon! I'm Raymon's friend who connects with Chief Two Trees. Thanks again!

The *NEW* Toronto Dowsers Library
At our library, I saw the book, "Initiation" by Elisabeth Haich still sitting on the "shelf". This book should always be out in circulation. It was recommended to me by one of the last living student disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda. It's written as a story, but describes some of the more esoteric practices of the ancient Egyptians and is an interesting read. This was the first place I started to understand the Power of Taboo, how powerful taboos really are --- which is why they are taboo ---- not necessarily because they are bad to do, but because in doing these things, there is such power that few understand, that fewer are trained to handle. I understood this as I was reading their practices, that today, are very taboo. "Initiation" found its way to our library when I found it in a 2nd hand bookstore in Vermont.
Mici Gold, our librarian tells us "My first 2 nights running the library at a Dowser's meeting was very exciting! The members were very eager to examine all the new books, which Marilyn had picked up at the ASD convention this summer. Some of these books are hot off the press this year and others are classics that have been "must reads" for a decade or two. I'm looking forward to hearing what you thought of these new library additions.Mici would like 1 or 2 volunteers to help her out at the library at meetings to help with returning and taking out items. You don't have to be there for both the pre and post presentation times, or, for every meeting, but we do ask that when you make the commitment (a few days before is fine), that you do keep it, or if you can't that you find another person who will. Library helpers do enjoy special library privileges, of course. Please notify Mici or Marilyn.
For the October meeting, I had the tapes from the 2003 ASD convention catalogued and ready for circulation, too.
Many thanks to my assistant for both evenings, Verna Jessperson. I couldn't have done it without her! Great teamwork!
Just a reminder: if you took out a book or tape at the September meeting, it was due at the October meeting, and if you take one out at the October meeting, its due at the November meeting. Etc. If you can't make it, please send it by someone else. If you can't do that, please contact Marilyn [or myself at 647-282-8379]. Remember, if you are late bringing it back, it will cost you a late fee! Unfortunately, we can't renew books, tapes or videos since lots of other members are interested in the same materials. Also, some of you still have library items since last spring. Please bring them back! (I won't charge you for more than one month.)
Let me know if there's a related book or other material you would like to see! "

From Geoff Stutaford, in England, with permission:From Marilyn, and, Sherry: MG: I often create what I call "mental movies". When I am in a place or at an event that fills my heart with joy, I look at it with different eyes, recording it and storing it in a special area of my brain/mind to view again at a later time. Like our first time on the mound, which at the time I knew was a unique event. I do this when I go to a special place in Vermont, "grounding in" the energy in my memory cells, so I can call it back when I like. Sherry Gilad also does this:
" A friend of mine recently gave a talk about various things he practiced and among them was a method for removing any unwelcome spirits ("clingons" he calls them) he may have attracted when he was dealing with them as part of his healing efforts. To avoid bringing them into his home with him, he created two thought forms -- vertical brushes, the same as those you have in car washes. He located them on either side of his front and back doors so that they brush off the clingons as he passes through them. He says it works fine! "

During the summer it occurred to me to keep track of the really beautiful, sunny days when it wasn't smoggy nor was the UV so high as to be dangerous. I thought that during the winter months, when sunlight will be scarce and my body is feeling the adverse affects of lack of sunlight, I would use my pendulum to request that I re-experience the life-giving properties of sunshine as I experienced it in Bracebridge on the particular date I recorded. I haven't tried this yet but will give it a go this winter because, like Raymon says, '"if you do nothing, nothing will happen but if you do something, something might happen."
Love and light, Sherry
A Dowsing Lesson from JOE SMITH:
How to use Y ROD - Lessons #1 - 3
Take your Y rod that you are supposed to have by now. and holding it with the little ends strait up and your hands clamped near the top of the rod. Thumbs should be up on top, rod hanging down. Now roll your thumbs out with your hand flat across, palms up. If you had a broom stick laid in your hands with the thumbs out that is the way it should look with the Y rod. when you do this the point of the Y rod should come up in front. It should be in 45 degree angle from your body. your elbows at your side and arms about 16" apart. The tip of the wrist one way or the other will change the angle of the of the tip of the Y rod. So now practice this as it is not easy to do. Once you get it it will be easy for you to repeat when you use it. There are different ways to hold them but for now just try this way. The tip should be in a tension strain so as to want to go either way, up or down.Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2003 21:26:22 -0500
After you get this done the next thing is to learn a yes and no answer. With your rod in a ready position (the 45 degree angle) Thumbs out. Now ask the Y rod to give you a yes answer, it should dip down and then return to neutral (the 45) . Once you get that to work then ask for your No answer. It will either lift slightly. or do nothing at all. OK this is enough for one evening. Now if you want this to continue I have to hear that is somebody at least trying it as we go. So for I'm a little worried that I'm just talking to my self. Joe
I hope every body that wants now has learned to hold the Y rod and has gotten a yes answer and maybe a no. Next will be standing and scanning with the Y. Pick out a target, maybe your spouse that has gone down town some where. or any other thing you want to know where it is. With the y in ready position, rotate your body around slowly asking your question (where is --- at this time) The Y will begin to dip as you hear the right direction. and dip when you are on target. Practice this for a while till you get comfortable with it and we are headed out doors next lesson. Just remember there is a lot of responsibility that goes with learning to dowse. We will go into that later. JoeDate: Fri, 19 Sep 2003 16:21:13 -0500
Are you ready to dowse for a water vein? OK, lets go out side while the weather is still warm. Place your Y rod in ready position and start walking SLOWLY, that is important while learning. As you get close to a vein of underground water, the Y will start to dip as you cross the vein it will pull down and then release as you cross the vein. When you get the feel for that lets look for the sewer line coming from the house. Just ask for the sewer line and it will dip as you cross it. This is a good time to have you reverse the direction and redowse the sewer line and the water vein. You might notice that it wasn't in the exact spot you found it at first. The reason is when you are first learning the Y rod your answer will be a little delayed. Ok now go around the house and look for things like the telephone line or the Electric line if it is buried. There are lots of things you can practice on. Now time to impress on you some responsibility with you dowsing with any tool. As you learn you might be tempted to dowse a well location for someone. Do not do that until you have worked with an experienced dowser. It is very possible that you might be right on with your dowsing but maybe not. Drilling a well involves a lot of money and you would feel bad if the well was dry. So for now be content just to learn the different tools.

Remember the absorbing presentation Janeson Rayne gave us in May 2003? Janeson had studied with Hanna Kroeger. One of the valuable morsels of info Hanna passed on to Janeson who passed it on to me so I could share it with you:
The longer the chain
The slower the brain
When you start out dowsing, your chain is kinda long. The more you dowse, the shorter the chain becomes, and, your reaction time becomes faster. Please, please, don't purposefully choke up on your chain cause you think you ought to do so. This is just a natural growth, the more comfortable you are, the shorter the chain becomes.
RE: DAVID SLATER - - -
At the end of Sept., beginning of Oct., it seemed that everyone had the sniffles, a cold, sore throat or flu, at different degrees. It seemed like a weird science fiction movie. People become infected with some organism, get a sniffle, the symptoms leave and a month or so later their bodies or minds start to mutate or something. I'd been quite healthy and got a slight cold Thanksgiving weekend. I asked some what was going on but no one had an idea.
Remember the info on David Slater in last month's issue? If not, go back and reread it.
An overabundance of chemtrails has been reported to David about our area around the time of October 7, and what this does is to increase negative emotions.
If you are experiencing an increase in negative emotions, you may not be the cause, so take things easy on yourself. You will need to.
If you like remedies, in the past, Margaret Ball has suggested a remedy for SARS. Hugh Magill told us about remedies you can make homeopathically against pollutions.
David Slater met herbalist, healer and dowser Hanna Kroeger about 30 years ago and worked with her until her death. David focused more on vibrational remedies while Hanna's focus was mainly on her herbals. He started HWS some time ago, offering unique vibrational remedies, coming to Canada in 1997 and gave a workshop here May 2003. 10 of us attended his workshop where he shows how to use his healing methods --- with dowsing. The information is made clear, understandable, and practical for use personally as well as in a healing practice.
David is known by several of you as an exceptional dowser, when it comes to healing, especially vibrational healing. He is considered a leading world authority on Miasms (weaknesses based on diseases of our ancestors and what it really is is: an electrical suppression of your DNA. Miasms also have strong spiritual connections). He has developed his own dowsing tools, which he uses in his practice and teaches others how to use. He maintains a practice in the Denver area and lectures in the US, Canada, Norway and Germany. [SNIP - MORE IN OCT newsletter]
"All truth goes through three stages:"Now those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth, and let me remind you they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyranny."
First it is ridiculed.
Then it is violently opposed.
Finally it is accepted as self evident."

PS: from previous newsletters:
If there are any errors or misstatements or incorrect information in the newsletters please contact the Toronto Dowsers so that corrections can be made in a following issue.
I've been getting requests for people who heard Ruth's presentation in September and would like to follow up and perhaps avail themselves of her services. At Ruth's request, I send these requests to one of her colleagues. Ruth is occupied pretty much full time with the work and projects she has already started. If you have a serious situation, please let me know. Many people in our group can clear land, houses, entities. Get to know one another, to find out who does what.
Ann Fowle called to offer a comment about the teeny sardines mentioned in the June 2003 newsletter and that they are the highest source of usable RNA as well as a high source of calcium. She said that she had taken a tour of a sardine factory and that Brunswick sardines are not really sardines but herring and are called sardines. The Millionaires or Billionaires sardines are so good because they are real sardines. We do not have sardines in this part of the world. Sardines come from Norway.
Had several tentative requests asking for more info about the Water of Life info in the October issue. Many of you, who have heard about this for years, now have the courage to try it. Good. One of you --- who will not allow me to use her name said that she knows if you take baths frequently, and if you pee in the bath your skin will be soft.
Bill Colclough commented about the clearing of crystals. He says that using salt is hard on the crystals. Try the moon, the sun the stars. (Bill ---- where in Toronto can we see stars?)
Why do dowsers receive different or conflicting answers to the same questions?
Why do psychics and medical intuitives receive different answers to the same questions?
If we are all communicating with a clear source of information from within us we should all get the same response.
There is only one correct answer to every question.
There is only one truth for every request.
What causes the conflict and inaccurate response?
Come to Art Martin's presentation and find out.
"I feel we have finally cracked the minds codes that block us from having it all. Peace, happiness, harmony, joy, unconditional love and abundance of personal financial success become available to us. I feel we have found the causes of why we sabotage ourselves and why most dowsers can't get consistent results. It was a mind bender when we discovered the reason for this. I have been doing research on this for the last six months since we discovered it in all places, in Toronto. One of my client/therapists brought it up to me when I was there in April. We did some work on it then checked everyone in the workshop and found that most people were subject to these effects. I would be willing to speculate that we will find few people in your audience that are clear of this and can get accurate answers in dowsing.Art has a good workbook that he has produced and will bring. It sells for $20 USD.
Art Martin's system of Psychoneuroimmunolgy defines illness, disease, and emotional and mental malfunction as a breakdown in the immune and endocrine systems caused by negative sensory input, thoughts, feelings, perceptions and actions. Art shows that through techniques he has developed, we can change a person's mental/physical heath, wellness and outlook on life in minutes if they choose to do so.
Art says that most people search for the keys to success never finding them. Success is: Knowing you can empower yourself to do whatever you desire without limitations. Only 5% of the population can say this. Clearing the sabotaging programs opens the door to success, happiness and wealth. We will demonstrate this.
We cracked the code in the mind to reveal all the files that contain the defective software programs that block us from success. We know we can locate and heal anything with Energy Medicine. The body/mind is a network computer. All cellular structures in our body are controlled by programs in the subconscious mind's main frame computer. All conflicts and malfunctions are controlled by beliefs, programs, habits and concepts created by our mind. Breakdowns in our life are caused by negative programming that we record. Most children are rejected in some manner during childhood which causes self rejection with many other forms of negative programming. This causes breakdowns in the hardware (body) and malfunctioning of the basic programs that we operate from (software in the mind). The result of this is illness, disease, allergies, sabotage of relationships, conflicts, lack of self esteem, self worth, self confidence, insecurity in careers, lack of money, fear and as many other forms of physical and mental/emotional breakdowns we can name. We will demonstrate how your bodymind can heal itself when negative programming is released.
Art Martin N.D., D.D., Ph.D. Is a practitioner and has a comprehensive training program in Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology. Author of "Your Body is Talking Are You Listening"? and six other books. Art's background and training is in Psychology, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Chinese and Tibetan medicine, Dowsing and many other hands on therapies. He began his research for a healing process that worked when he was told by a doctor in 1972 he would end up in a wheelchair due to the degeneration of his spine. He began research on developing N/CR in 1980. He has healed himself with the help of practitioners of Neuro/Cellular Repatterning. He has been a Dowser for over 30 Years.
