MEMBERSHIP:     If your membership (renewal or new) was received by October 22nd, you should have received your membership card in this mailing.   If you have not received it, contact Marilyn.  Some membership confirmations (cards) were not included last month and they are in this mailing.  Everything ought to be up to date.

Membership for our 5th year, which closed September 30th, was 16% higher than our previous year.

Renewals will be honored until December 31st.  After that time, its considered a new membership.  You can mail in your memberships, or bring them in to a meeting.

PRE MEETING PROCESS GROUP:   This is the pre presentation teaching practice offered by  Shelley Bourne, Angi Venning and Joy Goch.    November 8th (before the meeting begins) is the 2nd meeting for this group.   Last month several people found out about blockages they had to dowsing, and problems with money.  This month they will learn what to do about it.  Preregistration is required.  To see if you can join Please call   Shelley:  905 294 6858

Participants have been asked to  GO DIRECTLY TO THE STAGE.   There are a couple of people who still can not comprehend what that means.  If anyone has any idea how it could be more clearly stated, please let me know.   We had to discontinue the previous Pre Meeting Practice Groups because we were interfered with when we were setting up for the meeting.  We hope that will not re-occur, so you can continue to have these groups.

Please remember that you need to be a paid up member to take part in this group.

LIANE GUSTAFSON, VICTORIA, BC, THANK YOU!    Do you remember being asked for Table Coverings for our display tables at the meetings?   A large package arrived in the mail a few weeks ago.   Liane appliqued pendulums!!! gold!  on a beautiful large cranberry heavy linen tablecloth and sent it to us.    Please take a moment to notice this at our meetings and let us know how beautiful you think it is.   As part of her busy lifestyle, Liane is also a quilt maker.

*    CDs of our Presentations --- Now Available --- Soon    *

CD recordings of most of our future meetings will be available, for sale.
The October 11, 2005 presentation has been recorded
This will replace most of the extensive meeting notes that have been in our newsletters.

The reasons for this is the meeting notes would take me two full days to write --- time I no longer have -- see why below --- (and no one else has accepted the challenge), the technology is available, and by listening to the CD itself you will be better informed.   When I do the meeting notes, although I try to write down every salient point, still, I probably record the points that are most important to me.   You might not be interested in what is important to me, and I might pass up and not record what might be important to you.

The CDs for this next year can be listened to in any CD player, including your computer.
Please give us a couple of months before production, marketing, shipping, etc., details are working smoothly.   The CDs will be available for sale at the meetings --- on Liane's new table covering!

The cost for the October 2005 meeting CD (130 minutes, in a 2 CD set):
Members:  $10            Non Members:  $15                Shipping:  Add $5  if you want it mailed

For the last two years, Mici Gold has done a superb job as our Librarian.  Conscientious, dedicated, caring, she took care of people, personal requests, our books and our records.   A very busy person, with a practice, home, husband, children and many other interests, it was only a matter of time before she would not have the time for our library.  And so, it has happened, other pressures became too great and Mici has had to relinquish the care of the library.   Mici our deepest thanks --- not just from me, personally, but from the many people who benefitted by your solicitiousness.   All I heard from people was praise and gratitude.   Mici, thank you thank you thank you.  We are all sorry to see you leave the library, wish you the best, always, envy those to whom you are now giving your attention to and hope to see you at meetings.

The Toronto Dowsers, our members and our library are supremely fortunate that Kathy Therrien, who has been working in the Toronto Public Library System for decades, has taken over the care of our library.   This task becomes larger every year, because our items increase every year.  We currently have over 12 bankers boxes with material.   Our inventory has 350?  500?   items --- including books, video tapes, audio tapes, CDs. DVDs, and there are about another 200 items that need to be catalogued and included.

Many of you have donated great books and tapes.   The bulk of our inventory comes from purchases I make.  Our library has absolutely exquisite superlative items.  One reason is because I am an extreme bibliophile with excellent taste in books.  And often the good ones just jump off the shelf at me and say "Take me to the Toronto Dowsers Library".  This is true!   I used to think I worked at the Library of Alexandria in one incarnation.  Then I realized it must be that I was the Library of Alexandria --- this bibliophilia is so extreme....

I know at least 2 others in our group --- who prefer to remain anonymous --- who are also so inclined and we enjoy engaging in this delightful affliction with one another.   This collecting, and piles and boxes of books in my apartment that eventually do find their way to the library --- means that you benefit.

Kathy needs help.  Especially at the meetings, helping to check books in and out.   We have so many unusual, excellent, hard to get, often out of print items.  There is so much more Kathy and  I want to do with the library.   Please speak to Kathy at the meeting at tell her how you would like to help her.   Or speak to me.   It does not mean you have to help at every meeting.   She can't do it alone.

As observed from time to time, as the newsletter is writing itself, themes occasionally appear, like shapes in clouds or smoke.  Last month's link  was Dhyani Ywahoo and the thread connecting Ivan McBeth, William Henry and the Dragons.  And the Dragons linked us to Masaru Emoto, and back again to Katrina and Rita.

This issue, not surprising since we are dowsers, once again, whoever, whatever has written this newsletter has brought us to an even deepened awareness of Subtle Energies, vibrations, frequencies.   The catalyst is Magda Havas, our speaker on ElectroPollution.  A natural, since electricity --- occasionally natural --- is obviously energy.  And Joey Korn speaks to us about the differences of the effects between physical energies and subtle energies.  Dr. Emoto, Robert Gilbert and Dr. Ibrahim Karim come in to this too.  Shape and Sound.   Michael Bastine and his orenda followed by the healing frequencies of the Musical Rainbow, then the Solfeggio frequencies.  Sound and Shape.  Then the more ephemeral garnishings of Egyptian dreamings and Rumi and helper herbs.  They all swirl around together, overlapping, connecting, conmingling,  complementing, like the two circles forming a Vesica Pisces, or a Flower of Life.

From Joey Korn:  "It's not the physical emanations from electronic devices that weaken us; it's the subtle emanations."

 Helke Ferrie
Medical Science Writer and Director of Kos Publishing “Books on Medicine that Works!”
presents on:

Saturday, November 5, 2005 - 1:30 to 3:30
OISE at 252 Bloor Street W. Toronto, ADMISSION $ 10

Helke will report on the October 27th – 30th 2005 international conference on CODEX convened by the European and North American health freedom organizations under the auspices of the UK Alliance for Natural Health at Minneapolis. In addition, she will report on the implications of the July 4th ruling by the International Court on the CODEX-related issues, the current stand of Canada’s federal Bill C-420 which seeks to protect Canadians from CODEX, and provide concrete information on what you can do to protect the free availability of dietary supplements.

We Become Silent”, a 2005 Documentary on CODEX
by Kevin P. Miller, narrated by Dame Judy Dench, will be shown

This documentary made in the UK in the spring of 2005 by the Alliance for Natural Health updates on the efforts of the CODEX sub-committee charged through the United Nations and World Health Organization to regulate the world trade of dietary supplements, and how CODEX decisions are enforced by the World Trade Organization. This 30-minute film provides an overview of the history and current status of CODEX, how its decisions affect the world, and what dangers these pose to the availability of all dietary supplements which are in danger of being regulated such that the dosages are too low to be meaningful and the prices become as high as pharmaceutical drugs.

What Happened at:  The October 11th Meeting:
Announcements:    Questions,   Answers,   Surprises,   Revelations
ON THE SIDE SALES TABLE, on Liane's beautiful table covering!!!!:::

AGAIN!   The book "Mad Bear" by Doug Boyd is offered.   We have only 6 more copies left.  This book was mentioned extensively in the May 2005 newsletter.  It costs more than the list price because it is out of print and hard to get.   Mike Bastine, who is mentioned in this issue, was a student and friend of Mad Bear.  You should snap this book up.  Its a keeper.

Mad Bear Anderson was a Tuscarora native who lived near Buffalo.  Visionary, healer, wise elder and Shaman, he was also a friend to RT (Rolling Thunder).

 AGAIN!   Ellie Drew's books,:  "Partnering With Spirit, Homer's Journey", Soul Journeys, are available.  Ellie is the one who wrote about Homer Hefty, to came to her after he passed over, 2 years ago.  This was written about in our December 2004 newsletter.  Ellie, who is an absolute sweetheart,  will be our February 2006 speaker.   You want to read about Homer's Journey, especially if you have an interest in sound.

Alan Handelsman's Resonance Tuners are often available.  The tuner is a little mysterious card that harmonizes energy.   Although we've had them for over a year (Alan was our November 2004 speaker),  I've only recently had reason to (personally) put it to the test.  (1)  My DSL modem was not working.   I remembered Bette Harvey saying she used it to fix her television.  So I rested the card on the modem.   It started in 10 minutes.   The modem will not work unless the tuner card is sitting on top of it!   (2)  Had a toothache.  Held the card up to my cheek.  In 10 minutes the toothache is gone.

  A sample card is kept at the sales table for you to use.   Hold the card up next to your pendulum, to harmonize it.   If you are having money problems, hold a $5, $10  or  $20 bill up next to it.   Use the cards for aches and pains, too.   Just hold it up next to whatever needs to be brought back in to resonance.

  For more information on the  Resonance Tuners see: RESONANCE

3 people of more than usual interest -- came to our meeting:
From MichiganTricia Wheatley and her friend Dan Reiher drove to Toronto specifically to attend a Toronto Dowsers meeting.  Tricia is the new president of the Michigan chapter of the American Society of Dowsers.  Welcome, Tricia, and hope to see you again!
Toronto's Raw Food Expert:  Does anyone not know Erica Wolff?   Erica (no relation to author David Wolfe) is the raw food expert in Toronto, teaches classes and workshops in how to prepare raw food.  Her work is absolutely deeelicious!!  And she has joined us as a member!
Health & Political ActivistChris Gupta, who has one of the best, most informed and up to date web sites on the Politics of Health, joined us.
Chris started as an anti-smoking advocate in Toronto went on to inform regarding issues that affect our health. Removal of fluoride from our water and pesticides from our environment are part of his current efforts.  He also brings us up to the minute info on Codex.
"My passion started from an interest in historic biographies of scientists both great and small. This made me realize that we are actually living at least 200 years behind what we really know.  All this is due to politics/egos and greed. I am an electrical engineer by profession and do fibre optic design. I have a special love for electomedicine and nutrition and frequently build and experiment with various electronic devices. I have built the brain tuner, all Beck, Hulda Clark devices and a number of Dan Dial's molecular enhancers.  Currently, I am in the process of designing my own Thermo Therapy unit for prostate & hemorrhoids problems. This has the potential to reduce up to 80% related surgeries; the Lee Crock device for which I have designed a simple timing circuit that can also be use to make a colloidal silver solution and am in the process of researching EWOT (Exercise With Oxygen Therapy) for which I am developing a method to do at home. With the exception of good nutrition EWOT, in my assessment, is THE most important breakthrough to improve health and may even help reverse certain conditions."
You can begin at Chris' site at:  www.tinyurl.com/2xohw   Sign up for his updates.

Chris made a presentation to the federal Standing Committee on Health, May 9, 2005, in support of Bill 420 on Use (Abuse) of Regulations to Protect Pharma Monopoly.    and accesses a study by Ron Law, former executive director of the New Zealand National Nutritional Foods Association, whose statistics point out that properly used drugs are 5000 times more deadly than supplements.  (I don't understand how supplements can be even .001% deadly, however, an answer to that is not necessary to make the point.)

I like what he says here:    "In the Canadian context, MP Colin Carrie stated on March 9, 2005 in Parliament that just allergies from peanuts alone result in approximately 5 to 10 deaths in Canada each year. By comparison, since 1960 not one death in Canada has been attributed to a natural health product.

A tablespoon dose of salt or cayenne is far more dangerous than a tablespoon dose of say vitamin C or a magnesium supplement! I invite those who don't agree to try this on themselves!"

Thanks again to Elanora Gaspar.   At last month's meeting, a bushel of tomatoes from Elanora's garden that she gave me when I visited the previous week was brought in for you.  For this meeting, Elanora brought an entire shopping cart filled with organic vegetables --- tomatoes, beets, squash, pumpkins!!!  that Elanora had grown and trucked in all by herself.   A bountiful harvest from a bountiful soul.
*            *            *            *
 Jo Anne Eadie, one of our members from Brantford, emailed October 5th as to why she would not be at the October 11th meeting:

"Hi Marilyn:  I will be missing the Oct. dowsing meeting.  I will look forward to the accounting in the next newsletter.  I got an email 2 weeks ago asking for all experienced EFTers to come to Alabama to a Trauma Centre there.  25,000 people from Katrina are re-locating in the area there.  We have been told to pack light, pack as if we are going to South America or Africa, don't bring any valuables and be prepared to work 75% of the time.

I am going from Oct. 8th to the 17th.   We will be teaching EFT to many and seeing as many people one on one as we can.  I am pretty sure that I will come home with so much more than I give.

I'm keeping a diary when I am there, I will email you when I get home.

Another amazing feat from Jo-Anne.  The last time we heard from her, her daughter was on the Women's Olympic Softball team, in Athens.  The time before that, she donated several jars of Barley Gold to us.   We are made richer by having members like Jo-Anne.

CRITICAL  ROTATION  POINT  by Hugh Magill --- September, Hugh notified us about the Critical Rotation Point, and it was in our October issue.  3 people reported to me that as soon as they started doing this, are having the most amazing flying and soaring dreams, they sleep, deeply,  through the night, and no longer get up in a panic.  Please follow the directions in last month's newsletter and  Call  Hugh at: 519-763-8853 by December 22nd to tell him your results so we can add your data to our study. Also let him know where you were born.  We will present the results at our January 2006 meeting.

Hugh "discovered" this CRP through reading a radionics book.  He has not yet taken Robert Gilbert's BioGeometry Training, however BioGeometry can explain the concepts as to why this works the way it does.  The CRP jives perfectly with those principles.

September 27, 2005 --- 2  high caliber events took place that concern us:

(1)  Rumi --- Turning Ecstatic a film written, produced and directed by Toronontonian (and Marilyn's first dowsing teacher) Tina Petrova had its world premier at Theater D in Toronto.   Toronto Dowsers were there to see it.

Tina had a serious car accident in California.  She drove off a cliff.  In the midst of an ongoing struggle with pain and despair, she was visited by a phenomenal encounter with Rumi, a 13th century Sufi mystic. The incident opened up a path of healing and transformation, that lead Tina to a remarkable array of individuals whose lives and work have been influenced by Rumi’s philosophy, teachings and poetry.

Daniel Kolos, Egyptologist, Poet is one of our members who saw the film.  Here's his review:

Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi, the 13th century Sufi ecstatic Persian poet has touched the lives of many people.  By the time he was thirty, he had over ten thousand students and the ears of kings.  I read his poetry when I was twenty, and I thought it was cool.  I read his poetry when I was forty and I thought he was deep.  I read his poetry this Spring, and since then I cannot read a single poem without being inspired to write one myself.  It is obvious that I am now ready for Rumi.

Tina Petrova, the Toronto film producer, had to drive over a cliff in a potentially deadly accident in order for her to be ready for Rumi.  Fortunately for us she survived and bounced back with an indomitable spirit partly because she had carried it all her life, and partly because it was re-lit by Rumi's ecstatic poetry.  On September 27 she launched the first screening of her new film, Rumi - Turning Ecstatic, at the Theatre D Digital in Toronto.

As a Film Premiere, the evening reached Gala proportions.  We heard Rumi's poetry recited in the original Persian tongue; we saw a feast for the eyes in the whirling dancing of a Toronto-based Sufi dancer; and then came the film.  It had an eerie beginning when Tina picked up a female hitchhiker in the Mojave Desert, and after a few miles she asked to be dropped off, saying, "Don't drive over the cliff."  A few minutes later the road turned abruptly, Tina's car skidded, she lost control - and drove over the cliff.

The film documents her recovery as she meets American followers of Rumi's Mevlevy school of Sufi practice.  Ecstasy, for Rumi, was a way to God.  With each meeting with poets, musicians, dancers, architects, and philosophers, Tina came closer and closer to ecstasy - and recovery.  The film is a revelation of how a poet, distant in time and place, can be relevant both to those who follow his teachings, and to those who simply appreciate them.

At the end of the screening, Tina introduced both theVision TV representative who had commissioned the film, and Shaikh Kabir Helminski, the Western representative of the Mevlevi Order of Sufism.  The three of them fielded questions from the Audience.  I rose to ask Helminski the following question:  "Rumi said, 'When one of those generous ones invites you into his fire, go quickly.'  Who was the generous one who invited you into his fire?"  Helminski then told the audience of how he met his master and paid him tribute.  Please look for Tina Petrova's  film, Rumi - Turning Ecstatic, on Vision TV in the new year.

(2)  Robert Gilbert and his colleague and friend Craig Siska came to Toronto.  The evening of Septmber 27th, they met with the --- beautifully dressed --- students who took their May 2005 Intensive training in a hotel meeting room in Mississauga.   Robert wanted to tell us of new offerings.  He did, but he had an even greater purpose than that to fly to Toronto and meet with us.   What he really wanted to do was introduce a special guest to us --- one from a far land who will be a frequent visitor to Toronto.
Robert began to speak to us about the Spring 2006 BioGeometry and beyond offerings, and then said "But there's someone here who knows a lot more about it than I do.  I'd like to introduce you to DR. IBRAHIM KARIM."    In walked Dr. Karim, to the stunned stupendous delight, pleasure and applause of all.

Dr. Karim is the originator of BioGeometry.  His daughter is attending the University of Toronto and he will be spending more time here.

Dr. Karim announced that Toronto will be the home of the North American Center for BioGeometry!

Dr. Robert Gilbert will be teaching the BioGeometry Foundation Intensive again, in Toronto:
March 25 - 31st, 2006  (7 days)
(Please let me know if you are interested in attending.  We are keeping a list of those who are interested.  Pricing, content, will be similar to our May Training.  (See May 2005)


The full text of the remainder of this article and some other articles that have been "snipped" is in the complete issue which is sent to Toronto Dowsers Members.  A printed copy of the newsletter, mailed, is one of the many benefits of membership in the Toronto Dowsers.  Your membership dues not only make it possible for you to receive a full copy of our newsletters, but they also support our activities and make it possible to bring this information to you.  Our members live in Toronto, the rest of Canada, the US and other countries.   Please read the BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP which will take you to the membership form.   THANK YOU!
The dovetailing of Dr. Karim's announcement with our October meeting topic was sublime in its perfection.   Magda Havas spoke to us about Electropollution.   May 2005, Robert Gilbert told us that once of Dr. Karim's biggest concerns is:   "One of the biggest threats to the world today is the tremendous explosion of electromagnetic pollution.  The more we have of this detrimental energy, the more we have of the detrimental energy quality which reinforces detrimental energies."

September 2005, Dr. Karim told us "Canadians are very environmentally oriented.  It used to be that one tried to reduce pollutants.  But one of the pollutants is increasing:  Electromagnetic Radiation.  We can't reduce it.  How do we live with something we can not reduce?  We will find new solutions.  We just fill the world with BG3 energy."  (The BG3 energies are the three energies produced by the proper used of BioGeometry.  They are the 3 spiritual energies:  Negative Green, the Higher Harmonic of Gold and the Higher Harmonic of Ultra Violet.)

"It's not the physical emanations from electronic devices that weaken us; it's the subtle emanations."
*                *                *                *                *

A Dowsing exercise, answers to be given at the October meeting, was included in the October newsletter.  You were asked to bring your results with you.  One person -- Margaret Holman -- completed this exercise for the meeting.  And, in the October newsletter, I left out item #4.   Margaret did receive a book for her work.   The answers were not revealed.   We will do this again at the November meeting.   Please bring in your dowsed results and find out Who's Who.

A Fun Dowsing Exercise for the November Meeting:

More information on this section appears elsewhere in this issue.


Advice on Clearing and Protection.  From Christine, in Nova Scotia
"The thing I noticed when doing the clearings, is it is very important to put protection up.  Extra protection.  I was close to getting physically sick after working on a friend's house.  I took on a lot that wasn't mine and didn't know what was going on.  It took me two days to get back on track.

But after the clearing is done, things start changing.  Sometimes though it regresses and takes some maintenance and adjustments.  When working with a difficult place I am asking for the changes to occur in a gentle way.  This helps.



Sandee Mac,  from Texas:   Inka Shaman, Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regressionist, Feng Shui  (Black Hat), Certified Trainer, NLP --- and of course --- a superb and intuitive dowser,  nationally known as a leader in the field of personal growth and spiritual development.

She will speak on Dowsing Techniques from Hanna Kroeger

COMMENTARY FROM SOME OF OUR FRIENDS:  Last month there were comments from Margaret Ball, Raymon Grace and Joe Smith.  Here's a recent comment from Alicja Aratyn:

"I read in the last issue about Sandee Mac's upcoming visit to Canada. After reading your note I felt like something should be added to it, so allow me to share with you my thoughts about Sandee.

Sandee has been a dear friend of mine for last 4 or 5 years. She was the first teacher at the ASD Convention who came to me to congratulate me after my "debut" in Vermont 5 years ago.  We talked about dowsing and its history in US for long time. Our friendship started then. Over the years Sandee as well as myself went through different stages of life and passed through hard times in our personal lives. Although we live far from each other and we both travel extensively, we are always in touch and in each others' thoughts. In my opinion Sandee is one of the kindest, most caring, intelligent and fun to be with people I have ever met. If one needs help, there is always Sandee to do that. She is not judgmental, nor "nosy", however she can be due to her healing ability and dowsing skills. If for any reason she cannot help, she looks for someone to take over, never leaves you alone with your problems.

Sandee is also wonderful teacher. She is knowledgable, patient, caring and - due to her education - very well organized and systematic. Anyone can understand practically everything she explains. And believe me, if I can, everyone can. She studied with so many pioneers on the threshhold of science and metaphysics, and has a very unique ability to put all that knowledge in very simply and easy to fallow format.

Sandee is unique. Sandee is classy. Sandee is caring and sharing. Sandee is simply wonderful. I am happy that more people will have an opportunity to spend time with her and learn from her.

Thank you, Marilyn, for bringing Sandee to Canada.

   December 13th:   The 6th Annual Toronto Dowsers Networking Social

December is our Annual Networking Social.  Be prepared to come for an evening of fun and re-connecting with your dowsing friends.  This is the time where you can show off your more commercial side as we have a market like ambiance.  It becomes a big, fun filled fair.
SPECIAL GUESTS are being invited.  One of the SPECIAL GUESTS are the teachers and distributors of a fairly unknown Dowsing Device: The Lecher Antenna.   They will be demonstrating this device to you.
Members are eligible to have a free table to offer products, advertise services, etc, as space permits.  We also ask you to bring some food if you like.  In the past 5 years this has been very high energy with constant activity, surprises, fun and friendship. GREAT FOOD!

Check out our GREAT Pictures from our last 2 annual socials: December 11th, 2002December 9th, 2003  |  December 14, 2004

For the last 3 years we have had more requests for tables than we had tables available.  So we dowsed to see who would get a table.  This does not mean that those who did not score were not worthy.  It could mean that circumstances would not be beneficial for that person.  Curious about one person, who scored very low, I called her to ask her if something was going on.  She told me she had sold all her products at a previous show and could not get any more in time.   As of October 22, we have 4 requests.  Last year we had about 30 spaces... Please make your requests soon.

If you would like to have a table, your request for one must be in by November 21st.  Either an email can be sent out by November 24th, asking people to dowse which vendor requests are the most beneficial to the Toronto Dowsers and to them as well, and/or members will be contacted at the Whole Life Expo.  Each vendor is assigned a random number --- even I don't know who has what number --- we dowse, you give me your answers, I total the scores and get back to the vendors who we have space for by  December 1st so they can prepare.

If you are interested in having a table:

AND:   Please bring food --- finger food, hors d'oeuvres, cookies, sushi rolls, etc.

The first meeting of the New Year will be a "Members Meeting", in the sense that members will be teaching and/or presenting certain facets of their dowsing related research.  ALSO!   Do you have questions of other members?   For example, would you like to know who you can carpool with in Oakville?  or  who dowses for Minerals and would like a dowsing buddy?   or who would like to develop charts with a dowsing buddy?   To expedite this activity, Please send your questions to Marilyn.

CONTINUED FROM:  Who do you know who (near the top of this issue)

The following listing contains the names in the contest, above.  Naturally, there are more names than choices, to make things more interesting.  See if you can figure out who "a", "b", "c", "d" and "e" represent from:  Pete Coles, Peggy Groom,  Ron Dmytrenko, Judy Cole, Lillian Swanson, Dennis Barnett, Peter Clayton, Diana Atherton Davis, Richard Fogg, Suzanne Foote, Marilyn Gang, Carol-Lee Gordon, Brian Harris, Suzanne Holub, Harold Johnson, Vera Ketter, Hugh Magill, Maralie Martin, Richard Martin, Joan Parker, Marilyn Ropeleski, James Thompson, Kathy Wilson,


DO YOU LIKE TO TAKE BATHS?  --- You're not going to like this one....   Many of us have shower filters for our shower water.  But what about the bath water?  This goes unfiltered.   Sitting or standing in this unfiltered water --- especially if you take long baths, frequently, can be damaging, as fluoride or chlorine can enter our bodies through tender tissues, such as in the feet, between the toes, through the anus, through the vagina.  Remember, the skin is our largest organ and can absorb substances.   This can destroy beneficial bacteria in the gut.  Especially vulnerable are older women.

ANTIBACTERIAL SOAPS can be dangerous.  They block receptor sites and lower resistance.   See CNN Report on why they are ineffective.

FLUORESCENT LIGHTING:  This ties in with our October presentation:  Being under fluorescent lighting can be exhausting.  Like smoking cigarettes, being under fluorescent lights leaches Vitamin C out of your system.  Avoid them whenever possible.  Or if you must be under them, take additional natural Vitamin C.

IS THIS TRUE ABOUT CHICKENS?   My mom always said not to buy chicken parts, e.g., legs, wings, because the rest of the chicken might be diseased or bruised or damaged.  So vendors cut off the good parts from a damaged chicken and then sell those parts.  If, say, a chicken has cancer or a tumor on the breast,  they cut off the legs and wings to sell just the "good" parts, I don't want them, do you?   Even if this isn't so, I bet after reading this, you'll never be able to buy chicken parts again, because of the image painted.  However, does anyone know if this is so or not?

The 'arithmetic' on when to avoid aspirin and when to allow a fever to run it's beneficial course.  And why.   (thanks, Gino, for this contribution from THE BROTHER JONATHAN GAZETTE!)

A.) All viruses following infection cause a fever, along with a headache and achy feeling.  All viruses can only make copies of themselves after infection when your body temperature is less than about 103 degrees.  With a high fever above 103 degrees the viruses cannot reproduce.

B.)  Almost all cold medications treat the symptoms of cold and flu to get rid of the achy feeling, headache and fever, by lowering the fever to almost normal.  Aspirin has been marketed as an anti-fever agent for over 100 years, since 1905.

Even most doctors already know about A and B.  But it seems nobody has put A plus B together to get billions of flu deaths as a result.

Why is it nobody nor any doctor has put two and two together before?  The answer is simple  its called Gravity.

If the patient is sick with a fever, achy feeling and headache, and sees the doctor, the doc will most often say, take two aspirin, go to bed, drink fluids and call me when you're better.  If the patient has a viral infection of the nose, which is the most common viral infection, often called a cold that medical advice is perfectly OK.  But if you have a viral infection in the lungs or the flu, that same advice could kill you.

The difference is, that with a cold in the nose, the aspirin will treat the symptoms, reduce the fever, achy feeling and headache, but actually will still allow the virus to grow in the nasal cavity.  The runny nose may last several days as your immune system, meaning the T-cells and macrophages, will try to flush all those viruses out of your nose.  Gravity helps here by constantly flushing the fluids and virus down your nose.  Kleenex was invented to help solve the runny nose problem.  But you wouldn't need Kleenex if you didn't use aspirin to reduce the fever.

But what happens if the viral infection is in your lungs, and not in your nose?  Here gravity is going in the wrong direction.  For the body to use mucous, T-cells and macrophages to flush away all those viruses allowed to grow because you took aspirin, the flow needs to go upward and out of your lungs.  But gravity won't let that happen.  Instead all the fluid runs to the bottom of your lungs and starts to fill your lungs with fluid from the bottom up.

Kleenex won't work for the flu. Actually, hanging the patient upside-down by his feet might solve the flu pneumonia problem, but I've never heard of anybody trying that therapy.  You are literally drowning in your own fluids caused by gravity.  At that point, without a high fever to stop the viral reproduction, you become hyper-critical and death soon follows.

The problem is most doctors don't know that.  If you show up at the doctor's office with a fever, achy feeling and a headache.  The doctor or medical practitioner in the clinic has no way to tell at that point -- is the infection in your nose or in your lungs.  It takes several days after the first symptoms show up to figure out where the actual infection is occurring.  And there is no test in existence to actually tell you in the office or clinic which infection you have, cold or flu.

The most common infection is, well the common cold.  So the doc says, It seems like a cold  take two aspirin and call me in the morning. No problem.  But what if instead you actually have an influenza infection in the lungs?  Look out.  Why is it that no doctor has figured out that giving aspirin to a flu patient is potentially fatal?  Well, for one, it's not in the medical books or journals.  And, two the doctor usually gets no feedback from his own patients that the treatment didn't work.

Most of the time when a patient shows up and the doc prescribes cold medications, the patient shows up later and tells the doc, It worked fine, all the symptoms went away, just had a runny nose and now everything is fine.  So most of the time  the doctor thinks that the aspirin or cold medication treatment works.

But what about the rare patient who actually has a flu in the lungs and not the common cold in the nose?  Why is it that no patient came back and told the doctor, You know doc, that treatment really just didn't work.  Why is it that the patient didn't give that feedback to the doctor, so that the doc would then know that using aspirin to treat the flu fever does not work?  Simple, the doctor never got any feedback from the patient.  The patient was dead.

Getting out of the House More, Thanks to David Alan Slater.

In a session I had with David Slater last year, one of the minor things I asked help with was that I don't want to leave the house (apartment).  I need a bulldozer to get me out, and that people would not believe it because the appearance is that I'm out doing things a lot.  Leaving the house once or twice a week is not a lot.  I vant to be home.  Alone.  Don't nobody bother me.  And I know this isn't good.

So David is dowsing for me to see what this could be about, he looks up, in surprise.  "Oh my gosh", he says.  "You're shy.   And you've compensated for it marvelously."  I told David that's so, I know it and don't want to change that part.  So David suggests I take a remedy called "SHY" which he says is what I need to get out more.  I have been taking it, and am out more.  Which is another reason I don't have as much time to write newsletters.  I guess that's why my knees don't knock any longer with nervousness when I'm up at the front giving announcements and I don't have to wear such long skirts or baggy pants to hide it.  For the first 3 years, every meeting, at night I'd lie in bed reviewing the dumb things I would blurt out during the announcements, due to nervousness.  Now I guess I'm not that nervous, or shy, don't say such dumb things or don't think they're dumb!

Thanks to David and his remedies, did something this month that was totally impossible these the past few years.  My cousin was getting married October 9th on Long Island.  But our meeting is October 11th and it takes 1-2 days to prepare for each meeting.  Since another one of our cousins died November 2004 I really wanted to go to this event.  So I got  things ready by October 5th, drove down to NYC with my sister October 6th, went to the wedding (it was GREAT!), drove back October 10th, arrived home late and made it to the meeting the next day  without being wiped out and had a great time.  THEN, I drove by myself a few days later to Mary Hardy's in Western Michigan for the weekend, and back.   I was constitutionally not able to do this before, and would always admire people like Sabina DeVita who could hop from big event to big event, fresh, prepared and focussed.

I went in to this big tale because I know several of you have similar challenges.  Also, you'll know changes are being purposefully worked on.  It can be disconcerting (especially for us earth types) to have certain people in your life change a lot.

I hope David returns Spring 2006 to teach again.  He saved my life --- literally --- twice already.   I will tell you those stories too, down the road, when I'm more than totally in the clear.

PS:  I'm taking a remedy which is called BRD BUG...

  The Watermelon Stand of Life
   When Yogi Amrit Desai (Gurudev) was still in charge of the Kripalu Yoga Centre, in Lenox, Massachusetts, I'd visit for a week once or twice a year.  It was the most relaxing place I'd evern been to.  The delicious meals were vegetarian and served in their large cafeteria.   One of our classmates related what happened to him the previous evening:
    "It was a hot evening and watermelon was served for desert.  Now, I LOVE Watermelon.  I can never get enough watermelon.  I took one serving of Watermelon, and finished it.  Then I took a second serving.   Then a third.
     I was sitting near the stand of trays where the watermelon was stored.  There were 6 servings on a tray, 2 trays per level, about 15 levels.   So just that one stand held about 180 servings of watermelon.  And I knew there were more stands in the kitchen.
     My stomach started to hurt as I was eating more than I needed to.  I just was never able to get enough watermelon.
     As I was reaching for my 5th serving, my hand stopped.  I had realized something.  I looked around me, realizing where I was, what I was doing, what was before me and would probably be there again, and again.  I didn't have to do this any longer, with watermelon or with anything else.  I didn't have to stuff myself with more than I needed, out of fear I'd never have enough.  In that moment what I realized was "The Watermelon Stand of Life Would Always Be There For Me."

our   Tuesday, October 11th 2005 Speaker:
Dr. Magda Havas
(Rather than extensive meeting notes here in this newsletter, a CD of this presentation is available.  See:  Presentation CDs Now Available --- Soon  near the beginning of this issue for the information.)
This was one of our most important presentations.  Not so much in a dowsing sense, but in what this can mean to your health.  This information was new --- and necessary to most of the people in the room.

I first came across Dr. Havas through her information which was published in a 2003 issue of NOW magazine:  SHOCKING!  and put that information in the June 2003 Toronto Dowsers newsletter.  About the 10 most dangerous intersections in Toronto --- dangerous because of the electromagnetic fields they continually emanate and what that means to our physical health, especially how it affects children.

I remembered her work when my cousin died from brain cancer November 2004 and started making connections from too many others who I knew who died from brain cancer, brain tumors.

Then I was invited to hear her speak at the Breast Cancer Research and Education Fund seminar.  The woman who sponsored it had lived in the boonies in British Columbia, moved to Toronto and developed breast cancer.  It was traced to the electromagnetic energy she was around, working in a call center in Toronto.

Magda spoke to us about the different forms of energy and their biological significance, about how if you hold up a fluorescent tube near a lot of electricity, it will light up, the professions which have the highest exposure (textile workers, because the fields keep changing in the industrial sewing machines due to their constantly changing speed;  then welders, then...), keeping your kids bedrooms "clean", unplugging appliances when not in use, the different strengths generated by different fields....

About cell phones she said that brain tumors develop on the side of the brain where you use the phone, that if you use an earpiece with a wire the frequency goes all the way up your body, that the best method is to use a wireless earphone and/or the one that looks like a stethoscope, that if you live within 300-400 yards of a cell phone antenna, risks go up up and its difficult to sleep.

She spoke about sources of these electrical energies, the highest cancers they cause: blood, brain, breast, hormonal changes, causes from Geofields, Biofields, Technofields and each of their health effects as well as how they may intermingle.  And military exposure and solar fields and solar winds and neural impulses and air ionization and radio signals and ion fluxes in the brain and dirty electricity and Ground Current and sources in the home (too many).  And why cows have been dying because of the ground current.

One of the worst things was hearing about how kids are getting leukemia from these fields and how kids under 10 are the most affected  (and then later on finding out about how cell phone companies and Rogers are trying to heavily market cell phones to kids).

And studies on diabetics and people with MS --- that when they cleaned up their dirty electricity (and how) how they were markedly improved and she will be doing studies on people with ALS, Parkinsons Disease, ADD, etc.   That 35% of people in the US and 40% of people in Canada are sensitive to this kind of electricity.  Magda has proven studies up the yin yang and shall be generating additional ones.

Afterwards you started telling me that having listened to Magda you realized how electrical fields have been affecting you --- and that you didn't know that this is what "it" was.

Her comment that had the most profound effect  ---  Dowsers, Listen Up!
"We are putting too much electricity into the ground.  It used to be a sink [for excess electrical runoff].   Now it's a source."
We dowsers are concerned with earth energies.  The electricity we are putting into the earth is affecting her as well as the grids.  We have to change that.   We have to help make it right again.

Statement of Problem:
-  Dirty electricity and Ground Current are serious environmental pollutants
- People and animals are sensitive to electricity.

-  Filters can reduce Dirty Electricity in indoor areas
-  Utilities must reduce ground current  --  One of the biggest problems is that Utilities are sending out dirty electricity and will not heed the kind of information that people like Magda are sending them.   They need to be pushed.
- Manufacturers have to reduce current and dirty electricity in their appliances
-  Expanded awareness and learning are required with regard to the Biological effects and Medical treatment.

Again, for dowsers, we had a special contribution this evening.
One of the MAIN POINTS!!!  for this evening:
Magda told us WHAT is going on.   Joey Korn  tells us dowsers WHAT TO DO about it.
Due to our knowledge, understanding and ability, we have better tools than most to DO SOMETHING about "it".

Magda spoke about filters that can be used in the home to filter out dirty electricity and showed us movies of people with MS "before" and "after" installing the filters in their home.   Yes, you can use filters.  First, some might want to get meters to measure the amounts.

HOWEVER!!!?   isn't this what Dowsing and Dowsers do?   Yes, we are lucky to have these devices and certainly, you can spend $800 (for the average home) for filters --- and /or you can use your dowsing.   Maybe a mixed approach can be suggested?  Filters for some areas, dowse for others?

Joey Korn has been working on the problems that develop from electrical appliances, etc., for years.  He has created effective methods for dealing with these problems.   He shared his research with us, and a handout was made available to those who attended the talk.   (A copy of that handout is to be included in this mailing to paid up Toronto Dowsers members, and will be included with the meeting CD.)    Much of this information is included in his book, which is for sale at our meetings.

(I may have included some points twice here.  Joey emailed me several times about this and I am challenged! when it comes to understanding electricity...) Here's Joey!::

"As you know, I have a unique take on fields that radiate from appliances.  Anybody who uses meters like gauss meters, for the most part, are off base. You can't detect "subtle" energy fields with any kiind of device except a dowsing device.  And it's the subtle electrical field that weakens us, not the physical electrical field.

We're not talking about microwave transmissions here; we're talking about the subtle counterparts to the physical electrical fields that radiate from electronic devices.

The physical field can be detected by a gauss meter.  Subtle fields can't; they need a human being to detect them, such as with dowsing.  The physical field gets stronger as you get closer, as indicated by a gauss meter or similar device.  The subtle electrical field is a vortex.

As you approach an electronic device with a pair of rods, or any dowsing tool, asking to find any detrimental energies that might be radiating from the device, you'll get several reactions as you cross the bands that carry the subtle energy.

This is the difference in my work:  From my experience, it's not the physical emanations from electronic devices that weaken us; it's the subtle emanations.  The subtle electrical fields from vortexes.  When you're in a band of the spiraling field, it will weaken you and you'll muscle test weak; when you're in between the bands, you'll muscle test normal.

This is where my positive/negative thing comes in.  The band that carries the charge is "positive," whether it's beneficial or detrimental.  The "negative" spiraling band is neutral.

A blessing over the field, asking that it become beneficial, will immediately change the field.  Then the spiraling bands will dowse as beneficial and you'll muscle test strong in the bands and normal in between them.   All you do is recognize the field and ask God to make it beneficial; immediately, it becomes beneficial.  I don't neutralize the fields; I make them beneficial. And you can take it much farther than that."

"It's not the physical emanations from electronic devices that weaken us; it's the subtle emanations."

There was a series of articles in the Toronto Star, Summer 2005 that dealt with the cell phone problem, where authorities are finally admitting that there may be a problem with cell phones.
The following Summer 2005 Toronto Star articles can be accessed through:  TORSTAR
(1)  Rogers launches cellphone for kids
Aug. 9, 2005. 08:42 AM
Rogers Wireless has become the first Canadian mobile phone provider to introduce a cellphone designed for children as young as eight. The launch of the brightly coloured Firefly phone comes after a U.S. consumer advocacy group petitioned Congress to investigate the marketing and sale of cellphones to children.

(2) Cellphone use by children way up
Jul. 26, 2005. 08:09 AM
Cellphone use by children has grown more than 140 per cent since 2001 and is set to expand even further as wireless companies target young people with phones bearing images such as Barbie, suggests a new international survey obtained by the Toronto Star.

(3) Limit cell use: Health officer
Jul. 12, 2005. 06:37 AM
The country's top public health officer says Canadians should consider moderating their use of cellphones — and their children's — until science overcomes nagging uncertainties about long-term health effects.

(4) Can we reduce cellphone risk for kids?
Jul. 11, 2005. 08:52 AM
Officials from around the world are gathering in Ottawa today to debate how governments should manage such global health risks as climate change and influenza. But there's also a less talked about health concern listed on the conference agenda: electromagnetic radiation from cellphones.

(5) Insurers weigh cell risks
Jul. 11, 2005. 06:55 AM
A flurry of U.S. lawsuits alleging harmful health effects from cellphones is making it more difficult for the wireless industry to insure itself, says a top insurance lawyer.

(6) Is her cellphone safe?
Jul. 10, 2005. 09:26 AM
What you know about the potential health risks of your cellphone may be clouded by powerful corporate interests anxious to protect the image of the world's most successful gadget.

(7) Kids at risk?
Jul. 9, 2005. 09:45 AM
A young girl with a cellphone pressed to her ear can't feel the plume of radio frequencies penetrating her brain.But it's there. And like any child, her thinner skull, growing brain and developing nervous system make her more vulnerable than adults to the interaction of wireless signals with the body.

      ***Our own filters?   Two of our electronics experts told me they can make filters, at a greatly reduced price.   I have asked them to start developing some models and expect to have more information about it next month.

You and your:  Intentions, energy blueprints, thoughts, auras, energy fields, subtle energy bodies...
Do you understand what you are doing here?
   Our group and the individuals who actively follow what we are doing, are at a crucial juncture here.  I am speaking for our group here when I say this, that it could be the (or one of the) Toronto Dowsers' Tipping Point(s).  We are poised, at the top of this mountain.   Do we roll back down the familiar terrain, or do we bravely jump off and explore in depth new-ish  territory?

     Magda Havas shows us the harm we have caused to our earth and all her inhabitants through our irresponsible ignorant dissemination and use of electricity.   She shows us meters and filters whereby we can somewhat improve some of the situations.

     Joey Korn brings to us the understanding that it is the subtle electrical fields that harm us, not the physical electrical fields.   And how we can neutralize this detrimental effect, through dowsing, through prayer, through their combination.

    We don't give enough credence, enough respect, to the understanding of subtle energies, for this is where all the power, all the "stuff" is.   Not in the physical.  In the energetic, in the subtle.  By the time energy becomes matter and descends in to the physical state, it is gross.  outdated.  dead.   Our assumptions, our so called knowledge is woefully wrong.   Just as people err in assuming that decisions get made at meetings, because meetings seem "real" and "solid" and we find comfort in what we believe is "real" and "solid" when -- in essence ---  important decisions get made at parties and lunches and dinners --- which are more ephemeral, malleable, contain greater innuendo and nuance and can change more quickly!  and are more fun!  The former is still, the latter has movement.  (a poor example perhaps, but it seems to do the job).

    Dowsers have felt frustrated and insecure for decades in our society, because of the [false] homage paid to "hard science" and the frustration that dowsing could not be proven, therefore its not real, and doesn't exist.

     When, in actual reality, what is considered to be hard science is just wishful thinking of what folks feel they need to believe in, because they are afraid of what they can not see or comprehend.

     The truth is, and has always been, that what we know as hard science is raw and primitive and thus far incapable of analyzing dowsing.   Hard science uses machines and devices to quantify and measure.   The instrumentation thus far produced by hard science is inferior to dowsing.  It is too primitive and too gross to measure the energies produced by dowsing and dowsers.  And any form of energy work

 Was bacteria in existence prior to the 17th century?  How about sperm?

  The first bacteria seen by man (Western Civilization) took place in 1676, through the discovery of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, at the age of 43.  Leeuwenhoek, 'Father of Microbiology' "discovered" the microscope during that time.   His announcement about bacteria was received with great doubt.   He also discovered sperm, blood cells and microscopic nematodes, and studied the structure of wood and crystals.

Over the next forty years he examined and described the spermatozoa from molluscs, fish, amphibians, birds and mammals, coming to the novel conclusion that fertilization occurred when the spermatozoa penetrated the egg.

  The attitudes towards  "Hard Science" have changed little in the last 400 years.  Bacteria was not known about before Leeuwenhoek.  Does that mean it didn't exist?   The fertilization of the egg by penetration of spermatozoa was unknown prior to Leeuwenhoek.  Does that mean no eggs had been fertilized?

    We are in the same position.  We have always been in the same position.  Galileo, the Curies, and many more keep going through this tired charade.  A glimmer is peeking through, results of the efforts of quantum physicists, which is being regarded as awesome.

      Dowsing exists, it works and it works with subtle energy fields which can not yet be calibrated by western science.   It is time --- it is past time --- for dowsers to cease yearning for proof and acceptance into the "real" world and forge ahead, confident and secure in what we know, who we are and what we can do.

      This chapter began for me in 1989 at a spiritual retreat in Sedona.   (The way I got there was the most amazing "coincidence" in my life --- but that's another story for another time.)   One of the four principle teachers  was a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda.  I took a healing course with them where I learned how to diagnose anything and everything and suggest the best way to heal a situation.   Determinations were accomplished through muscle testing.

       We learned that there are 5 stages of disease.   The first 3 are energetic and are not physical and can not be detected by instrumentation. as it exists today  These 3 stages are energetic blueprints and the easiest to treat, because they are not set, they are not dense.  Their energies are finer.   The first is subtle, the second is moderate, the third is semi-gross.   4th stage it moves in to the physical and becomes gross.   5th stage --- its really gross and chronic.  Western Medicine can not pick up stages 1, 2, or 3.  It can only detect stages 4 and 5, when its usually too late and only corresponding gross measures have a hope of treating it.

       Dowsing, and, muscle testing, can easily detect stages 1, 2 and 3 --- and when its easiest to treat.

      A couple of years after David Hudson came out with his White Powder Gold information, I had a friend who was able to make gold in his laboratory.  He said they did not allow anyone in the laboratory or within a fifty foot radius who did not believe in what they were doing, because they found that if a non believer was within that radius, the process would fail.  Subtle energies.

      In one way or another, all of our speakers are teaching us about subtle energies.  More than most, the work of Ivan McBeth (October 2004) and his Stone Circles and Charles Hubbard (March 2005) with BioDynamics and Dowsing, directly work with subtle energies.  Joey Korn's information directly and specifically addresses this issue and teaches you how to use the techniques.

      Ivan told us that when they were trying to move a stone and it would not move, the stone circle builders realized they forgot to bless the stone.  When they did, and talked to the stone, the stone "jumped in the hole".   The Stone Circle Builders at Jan and Pete's proved it this July.  Subtle energies?  What else?   In Charles' BioDynamics, how does nutrition from a compost heap end up in the garden, if there is no physical connection?  Subtle energies.

       7 years ago, I was walking home from the subway, intent on going to Staples to buy a black 2 drawer letter sized file cabinet, after I got home, changed and had something to eat.   4 minutes later, I exit the elevator to my floor, head down the hall and see a shape in front of the apartment door across from mine.  It is a black 2 drawer letter sized file cabinet, that my neighbor put outside his door  a few minutes earlier and was about to dispose of it.  How does that happen?

         Look at the subtle energy results of Masaru Emoto.   One of you told me that instrumentation measures that you need glasses for distance work, however, you can see perfectly well.

      This section started with Magda Havas telling us about electricity, mostly, but not all, man generated.  This energies are quite gross and has detrimental effects on the biology of all living beings.  Joey Korn educates us to the fact that it the subtle energies, not the physical ones that cause us harm, and then tells us how we can detect it and what to do about it.

     This last part gathers together, summarizes, synthesizes and analyzes much of the subtle energy work that has been presented to us this short last 5 years, as we grow in knowledge, understanding and sophistication.

     Please think about this.  Remain aware of the existence and behaviors of subtle energies in your micro and macro, internal and external environments.  And how you are manipulating them, perhaps unconsciously; how your thoughts and the thoughts of others do become reality.   And then learn how you can DO SOMETHING about it.  You can, you know.  If you couldn't you would not be a Toronto Dowser and you would not be reading these words.  Now do you understand?

"There is no magick, only fields of Physics which we do not know yet." Stephen W. Hawking

Why don't we notice all those extra dimensions, if they are really there? Why do we see only three space and one time dimension? The suggestion is that the other dimensions are curved up into a space of very small size, something like a million million million million millionth of an inch. This is so small that we just don't notice it; we see only one time and three space dimensions, in which space-time is fairly flat. It is like the surface of an orange: if you look at it close up, it is all curved and wrinkled, but if you look at it from a distance, you don't see the bumps and it appears to be smooth. So it is with space-time: on a very small scale it is ten-dimensional and highly curved, but on bigger scales you don't see the curvature or the extra dimensions.  - Stephen W. Hawking

"It's not the physical emanations from electronic devices that weaken us; it's the subtle emanations."

From  :  Several years ago, the healing (and more) CD "Illuminating the Shadow",  conceptualized,  whose every note was dowsed for, and created by Toronto Dowsers Shelley Bourne and Sharon Russell, was introduced to you.

Musician, Performer, Composer, Teacher, Researcher, Dowser  Sharon Russell has been working with light, color, sound and music for healing for over 20 years.

Sharon was taught and encouraged by friend and mentor Dr. Patricia Kerr to use music in healing work.   Both the National Research Council of Canada and Brock University's Cognitive Research Laboratories have supported and sponsored her work.

Since 1990, Sharon has produced a series of therapeutic and healing music, available on tape and CD,  that makes a difference.  How?  It acts on and affects the brain waves

First, a blip on each CD:

  • Sea Magic: Enhances Innter Child work, releases negative emotions, Develops positive attitudes
  • Infinite Mind 1:  Memory, Recall, Mental Stability and Clarity, Helps the rote learning process, helps all ages with learning or memory retention difficulties
  • Infinite Mind 2:  Accelerates learning, research and projects can be completed more quickly , enhances organizational skills, helps when studying, complete reports, housework, etc. beneficial for head injured, elderly, etc., with learning difficulties, ADD, special needs
  • Transcension:  Uplifts the soul, calms to inner peacefulness.
  • The Awakening: Brings the deeper subconscious aspects of reality or mind to the forefront.
  • Joyous Tranquility: Uplifting, Lilting, Joy, Love, Communicating with Nature, Tranquility, Inner Peace.  Inspired by walks rekindling special memories of  serenity and Joyous Tranquility on Scarborough Bluffs with her beloved German Shepard, Spike, who passed away September 2005
  • Pet Ease:  Similar to Infinite Joy (below), specifically tailored to animals physiology



    Infinite Joy activates 2 brain wave patterns:  First stage Delta (our deepest sleep) as well as Beta (our conscious mind)  --- at the same time and equally.   Most of the time our brain is in one state at a time.   The result is that stress is reduced, our minds are better focused and can concentrate better, healing takes place and protein is assimilated into the brain.

    For those over 50 (depending on our biological clock), stressed or in ill-health, the tendency is not to move into that 4th stage delta sleep. The results are forgetfulness, feeling overwhelmed and stressed out, difficulty in focusing on the task at hand, and a slowness to heal.  If you can't sleep deeply, irritability often results because the brain is deprived of that necessary deep rest.  Infinite Joy brings the brain to that restful state.

    Calming and peaceful, brain waves remain in that pattern even 10 hours after the music stops.

    Because of the [shifting] formula pattern, the breath and heart patterns are slowed down.  This is entraining the brain, the  music moving at a tempo of 60 which is the heart rate at rest.  It takes the brain away from what is going on outside.   The body is entraining to the music, your breathing starts to slow down and move in that pattern.

    In the elderly, head-injured and in children, there was a remarkable improvement in cognition activities (i.e. focus, attention and concentration).

    Awake or asleep, this activity is taking place which is why its good for hyperactives, ADD, ADHD,  pain relief.  Good background music for therapists while they are doing reiki, massage.

    The researchers measured the brains of rats and  through EEG readings in the Cerebral Cortex and the Hippocampus (the latter is perhaps the most studied structure in the brain. together with the adjacent Amygdyla, it forms the central axis of the Limbic System) found these waves were activated. It is critical to spatial learning and awareness, navigation, episodic/event memory, associational recollection and much more.)

    [PLEASE REMEMBER:  Our September2005 issue featured a lot of info on the Brain, starting with the article about why Einstein was a Genius --- and the info on the glial cells and their role in intelligence, etc.  The purpose of this info, my dear children, is to educate us more about the brain and the different areas so we can use our dowsing to enhance our brains, as we so desire. Instructions in that issue]

    Animals that produced these EEG waves had more knowledge, learning and experience after listening than before listening.

    The music worked every time for the elderly who were under stress.   It is the patterns that were making it happen.  Every single instrument and every single note on her recordings have been dowsed.

    (You may remember that my Dad died in 2001 as a result of complications from Parkinson's Disease.  (Sharon's mom passed away at the same time.)  Parkinson's people have big problems with the brain, and with protein.  When I heard that research studies determined that Sharon's Infinite Joy helps assimilate protein in to the brain, I wanted to buy this music for every Parkinsons patient.  Please check it out if this concerns you, or you or a loved one is having trouble reaching and remaining in deep sleep, etc.   Also for Parkinson's people:  If they can sleep with a low wattage blue bulb lit in the room, at least 6 feet away from the body, do so.  These bulbs are inexpensive.)

    Really Good Vibrations, Continued:  The Solfeggio Frequencies

    Originally these frequencies were apparently incorporated into official Church music e.g. Gregorian Chants, such as the hymn to St. John the Baptist. When asked, Catholic Church authorities remained rather non-committal about this, claiming that along with others styles of sacred music they were lost centuries ago. It is believed that the Solfeggio Frequencies were deliberately harnessed to imbue both those singing them and those listening with feelings of tremendous spiritual awareness when sung in harmony during religious ceremonies. Research into Book of Numbers chapter 7 vs 12 – 83, conducted by one Dr. Joseph Puleo, a naturopathic physician, has revealed that there were six base tones or frequencies.  Dr. Puleo wrote  "Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse",  co-authored by Dr. Len Horowitz. The information was extracted using a form of gematria, an ancient technique for obtaining hidden information by transposing letters into numbers. According to Dr. Puleo the Six Solfeggio frequencies include:

    1.UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
    2.RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
    3.MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles
    4.FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
    5.SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
    6.LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

    For example, the third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based!

        The first note, "UT-quent laxis," is defined in Webster's Dictionary as "the Gamut of dramatic emotion from grief to joy," and "the whole series of recognized musical notes." It has a frequency of 396 cycles per second, and is also associated with a "magnetic field strength equal to 105 power gauss," or 100,000. The second tone, "RE", short for "resonare fibris" or resonance, also correlates mathematically to 144,000. The third note, frequency 528, relates to the note "MI" on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair damaged DNA the genetic blueprint upon which life is based.

    These frequencies were further researched by Dr. David Hulse.   I suggest you read his absolutely excellent article on the Solfeggio Frequencies and the Power of Sound and how his research into DNA frequencies brought him to this stage at:  www.lightwithin.com .   Here are some excerpts I could not pass up, for this issue:

     "...I discovered that the regular "C" that we all know of in this culture (which is from the diatonic scale of do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do) was not the 528 Hz frequency "C", as described in the article. Instead, I discovered that a regular "C" vibrates to a frequency of only 512 Hz, and that the "C" of 528 Hz used in DNA repair had been a part of an ancient scale called the Solfeggio Scale. Moreover, the difference in the scales existed because of different tuning methods that were utilized in ancient times, vs. those in general use today. Later, we will explore that difference between how we create music today vs. how we used to create it, and how that simple change has made all of the difference in the world...."

    "The study of wave phenomena, the ability of sound to organize and repattern matter, is called Cymatics. According to John Beaulieu, in Music and Sound in the Healing Arts, "Form is the more elusive component of sound. Sound-forms can be seen by subjecting mediums such as sand, water, or clay to a continuous sound vibration."  [It would be interesting to perform some of Dr. Masaru Emoto's experiments of the effect of words around water and compare it to the effect of sounds on sand, n'est-ce pas?]

    Dr. Hans Jenny "noticed that when the vowels of ancient languages like Hebrew and Sanskrit were pronounced, the sand took the shape of the written symbols for those vowels. "Modern languages, including English, failed to generate those patterns."

    "Space is not empty. It is full, a plenum as opposed to a vacuum, and is the ground for the existence of everything, including ourselves. The universe is not separate from this cosmic sea of energy." David Bohm

    Jenny concluded that were examples of cymatic elements everywhere—"vibrations, oscillations, pulses, wave motions, pendulum motions, rhythmic courses of events, serial sequences, and their effects and actions"—and they effected everything including biological evolution. The evidence convincingly demonstrated that all natural phenomena were ultimately dependent on, if not entirely determined by the frequencies of vibration.  [This sounds like Robert Gilbert's "beginning awareness" that he experienced researching nuclear and biological energies, seeing patterns that inspired his research and studies in to Sacred Geometry.]   He argued that physical healing could be aided or hindered by tones. Different frequencies influenced genes, cells, and various structures in the body, he claimed.

    Vibration of Music of the Spheres: "Every cell pulsates, reflects and interacts with acoustic oscillations of the medium. Even the earth and sun vibrate in unison based on a main rhythm of 160 minutes. Each musical note is therefore united to non-audible notes of higher octaves, and each symphony to other symphonies that we do not hear, and although they make our cells oscillate and possibly resonate. Even DNA has it’s own melody. The musical nature of nuclear matter from atoms to galaxies is now recognized by official science."3 In " Molecules of Emotion," by Candice Pert, Ph.D., she writes, "… basically, receptors function as scanners (sensing molecules, on a cellular level). They cluster in cellular membranes, waiting for the right ligand (much smaller molecules than receptors), to come dancing along (diffusing) through the fluid surrounding each cell, and mount them – binding with them and (tickling ) them to turn them on and get them motivated to vibrate a message into the cell. Binding of the ligand to the receptor is likened to two voices, striking the same note and producing a vibration that rings a doorbell to open the doorway to the cell."

    Poet Cathie Guzetta summarized this science best when she wrote:

    "The forms of snowflakes and faces of flowers may take on their shape because they are responding to some sound in nature. Likewise, it is possible that crystals, plants, and human beings may be, in some way, music that has taken on visible form."

    For all you Internauttes
    About a year ago, it was suggested that for your "Web Browser".  y'all switch to FIREFOX instead of Internet Explorer or Netscape --- Go to www.mozilla.org and download it.  Its free.  You should be using it by now.  PC and MAC.

    Once you've done that, customized it and use it, here is one of the facilities you can use.  Let's say you want to:  (1)    print out just this article from the November 2005 issue from the Toronto Dowsers newletter, and not the entire newsletter.  Or,  (2)  you want to print out the Toronto Dowsers Membership Application, and you want it to fit on one page, not two.  This is how you can accomplish either task:

    WHY and HOW to use PRINT PREVIEW:
    Let's say you want to print out the Toronto Dowsers Application for Membership which is at:  MEMBER

    You would prefer it to print out on one page, but on your system it prints out on 2 pages.   With the way my system is set up, it prints out on one page. This is because your printer setup, Firefox setup -- whatever --- has different settings (such as margins, font, font size) than mine.

    Start  Firefox
    Go to:   File   --->   Print Preview
    You see it will print on 2 pages
    At the top, you see where it says "Scale" ?
    Click the down arrow to the right of it.  Click on 90%
    You ought to see that it should fit on one page now for you.  Maybe you have to shrink it further, to 70%
    When you get the desired look, then you can Print it.
    You can do this by using the "Print"  command from that menu, or click on Close and go to File  --> Print

    Print Preview is very handy, for those times you may see a long document --- such as our newsletters!  and only want to print a couple of pages from it.  You would click on Print Preview, see where the pages you want are located and then print out only those pages.

    I also like to keep several "tabs" open at one time.  This means different screens.  So instead of clicking  File --> New Tab all the time, I have customized my Toolbar so that "Open a New Tab" is a selection on my Menu Toolbar, at the top of the page.  I found this one day by poking around.  I like to read the Help notes in computer programs.   To do this one:

    View  -->  Toolbars  -->  Customize.   Then I left clicked on the "Open a New Tab" Icon and dragged it to the right of the Refresh selection and left it there.

    The Positively Awesome Mary Hardy

     20 Toronto Dowsers attended Rev. Mary Hardy's Summer Conference last year in Western Michigan.  Mary made a strong impression on us when she spoke to us February 2003  (see MAR2003)  and returned that October to provide additional information on the Harmonic Concordance.

    Author of "Pyramid Energy, the Philosophy of God, the Science of Man", and "The Alchemist’s Handbook to Homeopathy", Mary's profound insights, non linear thinking and understanding and delivery about the earth forces, exert a strong pull on many who meet her.

    Mary and her husband Dean have had created a pyramid and obelisk-based antenna that channels energy throughout North America and links with other energy channeling centers around the world to balance the earth's grid.   She gave our group a deeper understanding of our purpose when she stated that "The responsibility of Dowsers is to Protect and Maintain the Grids of the Earth."  Everything Mary does is focussed on this goal and whatever supports it, including her work with Essential Oils, brought to her by Mary Magdalene.

    I attended one of her quarterly retreats a couple weeks ago.  Here are some snippets from that weekend, from Mary and the speakers.  Because of the focus and work around earth grids, there is much attention on weather and weather patterns.

    -   Energy workers were denied permission to make changes to Hurricane Katrina, but they were allowed to make changes in course and strength for Hurricane Rita (this jives with every report I received from other sources).   And denied permission to work on Hurricane Wilma.  However, listening to CFRB, the announcer was saying that Wilma was moving extremely slowly --- they had never seen a hurricane of that force move that slowly, and losing force with time.

    -   The devas of the earth are responding to our poor stewardship of her.   We have heard from the Devas of the Water, in December, with the Tsunami.   The Devas of the Air in August and September, with the Hurricanes in the US.   The Devas of the Earth in October with the Earthquake  in Asia Minor.   Next shall be the Devas of Fire --- with a Volcano.

    RUST --- to get rid of it:   There was a cast iron oven that had about 20 years of rust on it, 1/2" thick.  So they took it to the canny farmer who put it in his barrel:  1 part Molasses to 3 parts water, and let it set there for 2 weeks.   Took it out and it was totally clean.  They also got rid of the rust from a pair of scissors this way.

    -  Prone to Migraines?  Have a leaf of feverfew every day or a few times a week.
    -  Spinal cord and nerve damage repair:  St. John's Wort
    From Alicja Aratyn's Presentation on Atlantean energies:
    -  You must spend time in sunlight without glasses.  Glasses cut you off from receiving spiritual frequencies from the sun
    - In Atlantis, for healing, energy (shape), sound and color were used.  Today, the only remaining places where these are combined are in churches.
    - Cancer vibrates, and reacts to Negative Vertical Green.
    - The left turn spiral pendulum, which spirals to the left, is used for extremely precise work such as when working on dosages, maps, etc.

       A word on NESARA:   Many, including several in our group, are following NESARA.   A --- video?  --- DVD? is said to have been created of Farm Claims meetings which were video taped in 1992 and 1993.   You can order this for $5 USD in the US or $7 USD to be sent to Canada.  For more information and how to order, go to:  NESARA VIDEO 1  and  NESARA VIDEO 2.

    Rome bans 'cruel' goldfish bowls
    Tuesday, October 25, 2005; Posted: 11:43 a.m. EDT (15:43 GMT)
    ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- The city of Rome has banned goldfish bowls, which animal rights activists say are cruel, and has made regular dog-walks mandatory in the Italian capital, the town's council said on Tuesday.
    The classic spherical fish bowls are banned under a new by-law which also stops fish or other animals being given away as fairground prizes. It comes after a national law was passed to allow jail sentences for people who abandon cats or dogs.
    The newspaper reported that round bowls caused fish to go blind. No one at Rome council was available to confirm this was why they were banned. Many fish experts say round bowls provide insufficient oxygen for fish.
    The northern city of Turin passed a law in April to fine pet owners up to 500 euros ($597.7) if they do not walk their dogs at least three times a day.  [SNIP]
    Supermarket Shopping:
    -  Sales on watermelons abounded this summer.  Seedless watermelons.  Can't find a watermelon with seeds any longer.  Seeds are where the manganese is, where the reproductive energy is.   Sure there are sales.  Because they "make" them smaller.  Watermelons are now like the size of large melons.
    -  Been watching the shelves for Juice --- cartons and cans.  Lots more "juice drinks".  Lots less Juice.
    -  The selections for prepared food keep increasing.  Choices for "real food" are decreasing.
    -  Toilet paper:  When its sold:  8 of 390 sheets, or 30 rolls of 339 sheets, how can a smart shopper do a price comparison with these wonky amounts, unless you carry a calculator with you?  Very difficult, this is done on purpose.  Another reason why dowsing is good, your question might be:  "which product is more economical for me to purchase?"

    MORE DAYLIGHT --- JUST AROUND THE CORNER!  --- Just think --- after December 21st, the days start getting longer again!  Mid November thru Mid January is a great time to rest, cocoon and sleep.

    Profaning the Sacred
    This is a theme whose pieces have been coming to me over the years.  Subsequently  reading Doug Boyd's biographies of Mad Bear,  Rolling Thunder, then followed by listening to Algonquin mystic, activist, spiritual teacher,  friend and apprentice of the late Tuscarora shaman Mad Bear -- Mike Bastine -- at Lily Dale in August --- the final pieces which were really the first --- were emplaced.

    We [Western Culture] have been --- usually through ignorance and a lack of awareness --- been profaning that which is sacred.

    We [Western Culture] have been taking the most wondrous beauteous, precious, vulnerable and glorious gifts from God, defiling and debasing them.

    We [Western Culture] are just starting to make things right again.   What are these gifts?

    This was first noticed when Raymon Grace did his first workshop here November 2000.    Jannette and Walter Huszczo brought their son Larry to Raymon's workshop.   Larry's life was hugely immediately transformed.   This son of a successful retired tobacco farmer became a dowser and started to learn native and shamanic ways of healing.    Which meant offering tobacco in a ceremonial manner.   Full circle.

    The natives would use tobacco as a sacred gift; to offer acknowledgement and thanks; to communicate with the spirit world.     The Europeans saw the use of this plant and took it over for pleasure and then contaminated it with chemicals.   Today, those in the Western world are eliminating the use of tobacco for pleasure and beginning to use it once again, for sacred ceremony.   The Europeans profaned tobacco.   It made them sick.  They got cancer.   Now they are bringing the sacred back to what was profaned, by not using it for hedonistic purposes and learning about ceremony.   Mike Bastine (see article below) told us of the sacred origins of tobacco and how it first came to be used.

    Tobacco --- a sacred herb --- the first plant after the flood --- was profaned.  What else?

    Sex and sexuality --- such potent sacred gifts --- gifts to be cherished and respected --- it is clear these gifts have been horribly profaned.  Details are not necessary.  It is dearly hoped that everyone reading this has experienced the sacred power of sexuality and knows what has been done to this gift.

    What gift --- aside from Life itself --- have we been told is the most important gift to humanity from God?   Love, family, sunlight, water, air --- are some of the sacred gifts we have profaned.   But that is not the one.   It is our FREE WILL.   This is the most precious gift that has been so horribly profaned by others in myriad ways.   And we are just beginning to become aware of it --- just at the tippy tip, and starting to make changes.

    The big thing with all government is control --- profaning Free Will.  Which is why issues and laws concerning sex and the mind are so repressive.  Because those are the 2 domains through which we can find our own power and escape their control

    Along with tobacco, we have profaned the use of other sacred herbs, that the natives call "helpers".  We have labelled them with where just the energy of the mention of its name is fraught with negativity.  We call them "drugs" and  sorts of disparaging phrases have been built up around it.   Even more, we have declared a huge war wasting huge resources on the use these helpers.    We have compounded the crime with these "drugs" to further profane the free will of others, harm ourselves and our environment.  We have even tried to make the plants illegal.   They have been sorely misunderstood because our culture is ignorant as to how to use them.  Here are some words from Doug Boyd's biography of Rolling Thunder:

    "... all plants live in families and have tribes and chiefs. When someone goes to gather herbs, hepays his respects to the chief by making an offering.  Then he actually speaks to the plant, saying that he is about to take a number of the group, but no more than is needed and for good purpose.  The need and the purpose are primary.  Peyote is another agent-helper whose purpose is good, but it can be misused through misunderstanding...."

    "To Rolling Thunder peyote was not a drug but a sacred agent, and in our ritual it was a sort of healing agent."

    "... I thought about the Potawatomi and other tribes that regularly perform peyote rites in which they eat a number of bitter peyote buttons in elaborate all night rituals.   He considered these affairs 'serious business'.  "It's a purification ceremony, like most of our ceremonies. It's used in a way that we want to cleanse our systems and our minds, so we can put ourselves on a higher plane of life.
          Rolling Thunder, like all traditional Indians, considered the use of peyote for "spacing out" or "getting stoned" a gross misuese of the agent and a misuse of the mind.  Both the agent and the mind are sacred.  In Rolling Thunder's view, the meaningful use of drugs requires a state of mind that can be acquired only through practice and purification, and a great deal of careful preparation.  The rituals are conducted by a chief "who directs the meeting in certain ways."  Rolling Thunder said he knew that there were a couple of groups of white people now who are using peyote right,  "but the great majority of them aren't using it right at all, and they might be punished for it.  I've seen some of the results of punishment.  It's terrible when it kicks back on you.  But peyote is good. I've seen it used for many good purposes when it is used right."

    Many of us have used mood altering or hallucenogenic helpers, for many reasons.   99% of us don't do this any longer.

    The few times that I have taken "helpers" I was fortunate enough to do so in a respectful way, asking for insight and information about issues I needed help with.  I didn't have the proper external guidance as to how or what, but I'm glad I did this for information rather than escapism or sensation.   I consider the insights and wisdom I gained to be priceless.

    One time I "saw" my father as a young boy, and the incidents that hardened his tender young heart.   I told him what I saw, but of course did not tell him how, and asked if it was correct.   He said it was.     The second time I saw the beginnings of our existence.   These visions, and their teachings, which took place years ago, are still vividly with me.

    I had an experience just over a year ago.  This time it was purely involuntary.

    One afternoon the second week of June, 2004,  I was preparing to leave for the ASD Convention in Vermont a few days hence, had a lot to do and didn't take time to eat.  I was sitting here typing you an email and got pretty hungry and remembered a gift someone gave me at the previous meeting.  Cookies.   It should have been obvious to me because they were individually wrapped in tin foil.  But it wasn't.  I was clueless.   And I had not been told what was in them.   Not nice.   The first chocolate chip cookie I ate was delicious.  Had a strange taste to it, but it was delicious.  So I ate the second one.   And continued typing.   20 minutes later, something's going on in my eyes and head and my thought is:  "Oh, wow.  Finally!  I'm becoming spiritual!!!!"   I was delighted at this opening.  Finally!   5  minutes after that the realization hit and it was "Oh no You Stupid Dummy!  You're NOT getting spiritual, you're getting STONED!"   And I ran around taking care of whatever I could while I still had the physical and mental capability to do so, to prepare.

    The next 24 hours were a mixed bag of superb insight, hell and bliss.   The hell was that I knew if I let my mind go to where it was being pulled, that I would go in to that world permanently and never come out.   If I had someone capable, such as a Chief, to guide my journey, I might have let go.  But I didn't and it was terrifying.   It was as if my mind was being ripped away.  I'd flip back and forth, back and forth, back and...  Again, if there was an appropriate person to guide me, the experience would have been profound.

    My body couldn't move well, and I was on the bed.   At some point I had to be on the floor, so I got on to the bedroom floor, with difficulty, and stretched out.  Then I got nauseous and knew I was going to throw up.   I could not get off the floor.   I could barely raise my head.   I was thinking of John Belushi and understood how he died the way he did, how one could be unable to move in this situation.  But I thought if I threw up on the floor, it could be a good thing, because then when I came out of it, I'd see the vomit and know this was for real.   So I threw up on the floor.  There really wasn't any choice.

    So that's the bad stuff.  That, and the tremendous toll it took on my physical body.  I don't know what it did to the energetic bodies. The vibrations of this stuff now are so gross and detrimental to the whole being.  I  had to leave for Vermont in a few days and I had a lot to do, including bottling ECH20!   I was still fragile when I left for Vermont a few days later.   The energetic vibrations of this kind of stuff is not conducive to where I want to be at.

    The good stuff was the realizations.  The increased understanding about love and the hurt we feel.   And the gift to me in this episode was that I was consciously feeling and realizing how it felt that I did not give a hoot about what or how anyone thought about me.  I didn't care about anyone's opinions of me or who I am or what I do, etc. etc.  It was 1000% unimportant.   This was perhaps the greatest freedom I have ever felt in my life.  I never thought that I was the kind of person overly concerned about others' opinions and words about me.   Sure I cared --- but I always thought it was pretty much the same as others, in fact less concerned than most.   Until it was totally totally gone.   I was aware the whole time as to the conditions I was under and so grateful for that gift of tremendous freedom.  Why, I still don't know.

    With proper guidance, with proper preparation and selection and ritual concerning helpers, there would be more wisdom, insights and less hell.

    Let us bring back the Sacred to what we have been Profaning:  to tobacco, our Free Will, Sexuality, God's herbs, children, air, water, sunlight.  Let us bring back the Sacred and Respect to all and to everything.

    Next, in conjunction with this theme, are notes from the talk given by Mike Bastine at Lily Dale:

    ORENDA: The Iroquois Sacred Force   -   Presented by: Michael Bastine

     Tuesday, August 30, 2005  -  1:00 to 4:00 pm   -   Registration: $25.00

    Like seminal mystical words from other parts of the world - mana, prana, ch’i - the Iroquois term orenda is untranslatable into modern English. We could start by taking it to mean “life force,” or “spirit,” but this could be too simple.   Something is either alive or dead; one can bear varying degrees of orenda.  As possessed by the greatest spirits, orenda could be a mighty, even deifying force. Among humans it was the force of healing - and magic. To the Iroquois this philosophy wasn’t “occult”: it was a part of their religious understanding.   By all accounts this force is connected with landscape. Some say that feng-shui is not just an Asian discipline, and that many Native American societies had something to the same effect. There are sensitives who can feel this  Iroquois force about certain sites, even hear it. There may be a logical way of detecting it.  Michael Bastine takes us on a journey into ancient legend, Native American practice, and contemporary Reservation spirituality.

    Originally from Maniwaki, Quebec, Michael Bastine was educated in a small rural public school. Most of his boyhood was spent observing and relating to the natural world as a child. Meeting Mad Bear a great blend of worlds began, and Mike rediscovered his ancestral spirituality. Mike has been involved with traditional people for over twenty years, and their many influences have reinforced the teachings of nature.

    Three of us enjoyed the 3 hour drive to the Lily Dale Assembly to hear Algonquin native Mike Bastine speak about Orenda.  This was my first trip to Lily Dale, and after being in the high peaceful energy of this supernatural cottage community for a day, I regret not having come sooner.

    We went to hear Michael because not only was he a colleague of Mad Bear, Rolling Thunder, and others and knows native healing, but he has the wisdom of native teaching and prophecy and imparts this to his audience --- if it be one hundred with sincerity, respect, humor and good story telling skills.

    "Orenda" is an Iroquois word. It means "Tribal Soul on the Right Path."

    It's not about what kind of organizations we join, or what kind of companies we work for, or even what kind of country we live in.  It's about what kind of human beings we are.

    Mike's did a pretty good job sticking to and returning to the theme, even as he wandered around in his talk to us.   He says that Orenda is what humans undertand to be mystical, magical.  These are life forces that we can feel, but not necessarily see, such as Gravity, Magnetics and the Wind.

    Mike told us about tobacco.   It is the plant that was given to the Native People.

    A purification --- with water was created on the planet.   Now we 3 had driven to Lily Dale at the end of Hurricane Katrina and knew we were in for hard rain on the drive back.  So we were real interested in hearing more about this water purification of the planet!

    Tobacco was the first plant to be given back to the people after the purification by water.   These plants were the first to come up out of the ground in the silt.  So to honor this gift, it ws decided that this plant would be sacred and that when a person is sick, etc., that they will offer that sacred  plant to be used as communication.  It is strong, and strictly ceremonial and is not intended for casual use, like smoking.

    Everything starts with water.  Then it goes to the plants, then insects, 4 leggeds, sand, rocks.. mountains...

    Certain people are very connected to certain traditions.  Because of re-incarnation.

    We humans were given certain special gifts.  We are supposed to communicate with evreything in nature on its level.  Most do not recognize it or will refuse to do so.   We are accountable for the choices we make in this life.

    With wild animals, if you violate their trust just one time, they will never let you get close again.  Therefore, you learn that you have to be respectful around the bobcat for example and then the plants.  So you learn you have to be respectful around more. More things, animals, people.  And more and more.  Until you know that  no matter what happens, how difficult life becomes, how challenged we are --- it does not give us the right to be disrespectful.  So we realize how important are the choices we make.  We need to remain respectful.

    There are consequences.  If you still choose to misbehave when you get to the spirit world, they put you in a place where misbehaving people belong.

    If you don't treat someone in a sacred manner, they will go away.

    Mike goes online often.  When he goes online, he never gets bad information.  He does not go online to Internet.  He goes online to the Spirit World.

    The Harmonic Concordance was an Agreement.  We have made an agreement, to support the cosmic changes.  We have created, we have allowed, that there is a Restructuring to allow a higher level of consciousness to exist.  To allow blue, indigo and violet souls to come in.

    On the Hopis:   The Indians had to put away their teachings, such as the Ghost Dance.  They got killed for doing their dances and other rituals.  The Hopis had a prophecy.  When they would meet people who looked like them and had a name like theirs, they would know that things were changing and it would be time to bring things out again.  "Just before it gets really good, it gets really bad."  So guess what happened?  Can you picture it?  In the 1960's, they met people going west.  These people had long hair and beads and feathers.  When asked what their name was, the response was:  We are Hippies. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You have to address your own issues before you can help others.  If you think you can heal yourself, you may get a swelled head.  You don't doctor yourself.  Because of ego, and, you learn from others.

    You have to ask things
    That is where the Power lies
    In the Asking
    You don't tell them where to go.  You ask.

    TORONTO STAR SUBSCRIBERS? - Do you subscribe to the Star and live in an apartment?  The Star has offered us:  subscriptions for One Dollar /7 day week.  Good for as long as you want it.  I think its because subscriptions are going down because of Internet. Once a paper person is in a building, its not hard to deliver more.  And, the real money is in selling Advertising.  If their statistics show they have more subscribers, they can raise their ad rates.  This special, though, means more use of paper.

    Sunday, November 6, 2005 - 3 pm       Avian Influenza -- Not Just for the Birds!
    Andrew E. Simor, M.D., F.R.C.P.C.      Sunnybrook Women's College Health Sciences Centre, University of Toronto

    Each year influenza viruses cause widespread infection, affecting tens of thousands of Canadians.  However, every few decades the virus undergoes genetic changes that result in the emergence of a new and more virulent strain that causes a pandemic, a global outbreak of disease.  The last major influenza pandemic occurred in 1968.  World health authorities recognize that we are overdue for another pandemic to occur, and strains of avian influenza ("bird flu" virus) are thought to be the most likely candidates  This presentation will review the risk of avian influenza becoming the next pandemic, and will consider public health planning to meet this challenge impacts of globalization.  Through health and disease, it will suggest that our securrity and way of life may be at risk as governments and other agencies struggle by using increased surveillance, quarantine, and reductions in civil rights to combat these dreaded diseases.

    Sunday, November 13, 2005 - 3 pm     The Human Genome, Industry, and the Public Good
    Aled Edwards, M.Sc., Ph.D.           Structural Genomics Consortium, Banting and Best Department of Medical Research, University of Toronto, aled.edwards@utoronto.ca   www.thesgc.com

    Perhaps the most significant achievement of biomedical research in the 20th century was the sequencing of the human genome.  The race to discover the sequences of all our genes was a tie between the public and private sectors.  Now scientists around the globe are racing to find out what our genes do and how this information can be used to prevent and treat disease.  Again, there is concern about this information, which is even more useful, being tied up in the private sector.  To address this concern, governments and foundations around the globe are launching international consortia with the aim of placing all the information about our genes and proteins in the public domain, without restriction on use.  The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), which is directed by Dr. Edwards,  one such effort. The talk will discuss the inherent conflict between the aims of public and private sectors and ways in which the two sectors can best collaborate to advance human health.

    Sunday, November 20, 2005  - 3 pm ----  From Soap Bubbles to Crystal Growth
     Jean E. Taylor,  Ph.D.     Visitor, Courant Institute for the Mathematics Sciences, NYU; Professor of Mathematics Emerita, Rutgers University

    Creating a mathematical model for soap bubble clusters required the development of a new subject, Geometric Measure Theory, in the 1960s and 70s. The internal structure of metals, ceramics, and other materials is related to soap bubble clusters, but has many more features. Current research involves shrinking, slipping, sliding, and rotating crystals.

    PLEASE NOTE:  TTC is recommended.   Sunday parking is limited on the University of Toronto campus and the cost  is $5.  Any vehicle without a valid parking voucher displayed is subject to a $40 parking fine. Several free parking spaces for the handicapped near 1 King's College Circle.

    The Absolutely Coolest Hottest Neatest Thang:  The Ceiva

    Had you heard of Ceiva?   I hadn't heard of nor seen one, until I visited my cousin in NYC a few weeks ago.  (The can be THE gift for the person who has everything --- especially if they live in Canada because Ceiva doesn't sell to Canada, so "in the know" Canadians might not know of it  yet. My sister the Maven didn't know of it and if she doesn't, no one knows.)

    My cousin works for Fuji and has all the technoid toys.  Ceiva is a picture frame!  And a Digital Photo Receiver!  And much more!  Its a picture frame, that holds photos --- that are continually changing --- these are your photos, photos of you, your family, friends, and you get new ones every day and share them with family all over North America!   You do not need a computer.

     Ceiva measures about 8" x 11", about 3" deep, with an 8.2" LCD screen.  "The CEIVA Digital Photo Receiver™ receives photos without a computer because it plugs into an ordinary phone line and dials a local number each night to pick up new photos sent to your Receiver. There is no additional phone line needed, no interruption to your phone service, and no charge to your line. A PicturePlan™ subscription is needed to receive photos. It enables your Receiver to dial in and retrieve pictures. Each morning, you simply wake up to a new personal photomontage of your friends and family."   So go to:   www.CEIVA.comand check it out!
    My cousin has a Ceiva.  So do her parents, her brother and his wife and each of her sons who live out of town.   They are very family oriented, share their own family network, enjoy taking photos and upload photos often.     They upload the photos whenever convenient (maximum 30 / day) and at 2 a.m. the network calls their receiver and downloads the photos to each one of the units.   In the morning, they all have the new photos in their own unit.  The unit sits on the kitchen counter.

    If you have a large extended spread out  family this is a great way of staying in touch.   Also a great way for grandparents to remain aware of their kids and grandkids activities and photos --- and grandfolks don't need a computer.

    The units are not sold in Canada.  But you can order them.  And there are at least 2 local phone numbers for Toronto, and other locations.  The units retail for $100-$150 USD each.   To receive photos, it costs $100 / year per unit.  Let's hope the prices come down.  Fast.  A lot.

    THE   Tuesday,  November 8th 2005  MEETING FEATURES::
    Sandee Mac
     "The Spiritual & Physical Causes of Ill Health as Learned from Hanna Kroeger"

    Sandee Mac,  Inka Shaman, Hypnotherapist, Certified Trainer, NLP, from Texas,  has been in successful private practice since 1978. She is nationally known as a leader in the fields of dowsing, personal growth and spiritual development.

    Sandee would spend a couple of weeks studying with Hanna Kroeger every summer.  Hanna would hold church services at the Chapel of Miracles.  People would come for healings, Hanna would go down the line, dowsing -- quickly on each one.  Sometimes Sandee would help Hanna.  The basis for her dowsing techniques are what she learned from Hanna.

    Hanna would tell people:  "Help one another. Good health is a treasure often neglected until the messengers of pain and illness get our attention."   Reverend Hanna Kroeger, the late pioneer of natural health, taught that there were 7 physical causes and 7 spiritual causes of ill health.

    These are examined in depth, responsible evaluation and self care is learned to help friends and family.

    Ill health is not caused by one single thing but is a compilation of physical and spiritual causes as well as genetics and past lives.  Several components combine to contribute to this imbalance, it is like a tapestry

    All the healing starts in our consciousness.  With practice, understanding and application to uplift the physical, health can be restored and healing can be relearned.

    Sandee has so many tools that she uses and says  "Dowsing is the center part of my life.  I use it all the time.  It's the connecting thread of all the different systems I work with in my practice."

    Many people in our group have Hanna's blue book workbook.  Some of what Sandee will be doing will be to show us how to use this book.  This was a basis to erradicate toxins, radiation, electromagnetic interference, pollution, etc.

    Do you ever take tons of supplements --- that are supposed to clear up a condition?   and they don't?   Sandee's comment can explain in part why this happens:   "When you have toxins, radiation, electromagnetic interference, etc., the tissues don't radiate with nature's life force.  The body begins to break down.  Then nature's clean up crews arrive.  If the body has that stuff in it its the same as that dead squirrel on the street.  Roadkill.   Bacteria arrive.  No matter how many vitamins, etc., you take, you can not kick it until you eliminate those causes."

    Sandee met David Slater through Hanna's sessions.  She says David takes Hanna's work deeper.   Come and learn from this amazing energetic accomplished dowser and shaman.

    Sandee  travels extensively and offers workshops on:  Shamanic Ceremonies,  Past Life Regression -  Feng Shui, Positive Psychic Protection and Dowsing.  She works with the following remedies and products:   Hanna Kroeger and David A. Slater Herbals and Homeopathic remedies; Flower and Gem Essences;  Connoisseur Essential Oils from John Steele's exclusive collection, Aromatrix;  Rare Crystals and Minerals;  Electromagnetic Protection Products;  Tachyon Product Line;   Slim Spurling’s Light-Life Technology; BioGenesis Healing Devices;   Feng Shui Support Tools and,  Dowsing Tools.
