The Toronto Dowsers
The Toronto Chapter of the  Canadian Society of Dowsers
welcomes you to our next meeting
Wednesday, September 11th, 2002 (see back page)
Gathering, Socializing, Registration,  at 6:45 p.m., Program to begin at 7:15 p.m.
Please feel free to bring munchies for our après meeting schmoozing
(e.g.: cookies, dips, finger foods, sushi rolls, tea sandwiches, hors d'oeuvres, etc. etc.)
NOTE:   Our location will change after September
St. Leonard's Anglican Church - 25 Wanless Avenue
2 short blocks North of Lawrence, 1/4 block East of Yonge Street
This is a 3 minute walk from the (Lawrence) subway
Please do not wear Scents of any sort to our meeting.  Dowsers are highly sensitive people.
These meetings are open to those who are interested in learning how to dowse, or becoming a better dowser.   You do not need to be a member of the Toronto Dowsers or the CSD.  Your dowsing will improve merely by attending our meetings.  Dowsing is a form of energy. This kind of energy is caught, not taught.
Our meetings will include activities to practice your dowsing and guest speakers who will share their experiences and teach you new skills.  You will have a chance to meet others who you can help or who can help you.  One of the best parts of these groups is meeting synergistic people.
Requested donation (to cover costs):
          $5 per meeting for Toronto Dowsers members  (subject to change in the future)
          $7 per meeting for non members of the Toronto Dowsers  (subject to change)
          $20 per year for membership in the Toronto Dowsers
If you can not afford this donation, please make arrangements with us before the meeting.
Do come and have fun,  grow with us and enjoy the energy.

  We are Moving

Sad to say, but after September we can no longer meet in the gym at St. Leonard's.  One of their church sports activities is returning to use the gym every Wednesday night.

As of this writing, we do not have a place for our meetings after September.

I have been looking for a new place since the end of June, without great success.  I am trying to keep it as centrally located as possible --- not too far east, west, north or south.  Yonge and Lawrence is the perfect area.   It must be reasonably close to the TTC, not too congested for driving there and parking.

Ideally, this would be within the: Wilson/York Mills, Bayview, Eglinton, Bathurst "rectangle".

I have called every church in this area.  Our problem is our group is too large to find a room that is not already booked by another regularly scheduled group.  A couple of places that were available would cost 3 times what we are now paying.   Most libraries close at 8.  About 10 other people have also been looking for us.  And, as you can see, so far, our dowsing has not brought us a place.   There are places but I'd prefer not to go to East York or Keele and Eglinton. I keep thinking of the people from Scarborough or Mississauga trying to get to our meetings on time.

I'd like to keep us in a place that has good energy.  Am now looking at community centers and hotels.  Do you know of any that are suitable?  A gymnasium?  synagogue?   (company) auditorium? cafeteria?  school?  cultural center?

Your help with this is requested and definitely needed.  This is what we are looking for:

Location:  Yonge and Lawrence  - as close as possible
Reasonable parking, reasonable TTC access
2nd Wednesday evening of the month,  3rd in October
Can handle at least 100 people (the gym we meet in measures 30' x 60')
A  P.A. system, audio visual facilities are a plus.
Our next location might not be as conveniently located.  We may have to raise our meeting donation to cover these higher costs, switch to a different night, have less room for our activities.

Right now I have us booked in to the Northern District Library, a block north of Eglinton Avenue just off Yonge Street. The room is good, its good for TTC people, the price is good, but you have to pay for parking and take an elevator to the second floor.   We can continue to find "temporary" housing until we find our own permanent home.  I'm not too surprised this happened.  Margaret Ball's dowsing indicated this when we first found St. Leonard's Church.

An irony from all of this is not appreciating the fabulous situation we had while we had it.  We'd grumble about the parking, grumble about the chairs.  We had a big gym in a lovely church all to ourselves, no one bothered us, the location was great, it was in a nice residential area close to the subway, we were able to accommodate 250 people when we needed to, we were able to easily have room for our December socials, and, the cost was very reasonable.

Our July Field Day

Our Field Day at Jannette's and Walter's was perfect in almost every conceivable way.  For those who got out there early, there was no traffic.  Those who waited were caught in the Pope's traffic.  The weather was hot and sunny with a light breeze.  We programmed for perfect weather.  A half hour after the last guest left, the sky quickly darkened with thunder clouds.

It was one of the most relaxing days ever.  Ever.  For Every One.  After lunch, relaxing, the most oft heard comments were to the effect that everyone was relaxed, having such a good easy laid back time.   We lazed around in the sun or the shade, ate, lazed around, talked.  A lot of contacts were made.  Healings took place.   We went swimming in the energized pool.   It almost looked like a scene from the movie "Cocoon".   Most of us brought our suits, went in the pool and did not want to get out.   Walter and Glenn bought a whole bunch of corn and cooked it up in the cauldron.  We relaxed, ate, swam, visited and kept repeating it.  I think some folks even did some dowsing.  The kids showed the adults how to bend spoons.  A lot of children were there as well.

I keep talking about the energy on the farm, and the effect it had on people.  I can picture in my mind's eye many wide eyed people remarking again and again --- and again --- how good they felt.  This repetition here has a purpose.  It's as if folks did not know what hit them, why they felt so good.  Could it be its because Walter, Raymon and Larry work on the energy of the farm, energize the pool?  Probably.  Now you see how it works and we can all do this ourselves.

Many new people had showed up, they heard about us and it was a great introduction.  Welcome!  This includes 2 new "horse" people.  Now we have 4 horse people and 2 animal communicators in our group.  That's unusually high for a city group, isn't it?

The food was great.  I thank all of you who took the time to prepare something for us and make the trip out there.  From your comments, you were certainly glad you did.

THANK YOU JANNETTE!   THANK YOU WALTER!   You are such super special people and contribute so much goodness to our group and to many individuals.

Programming Your Water;  Dowsers and Water;  Water

        I was talking with Raymon last night and he was telling me about energizing the water in Walter's pool, how they worked on it.  He was helping me with a situation and programming water to effect a beneficial result.  We talked about the "Medicine Water" technique he and Larry showed many of us in their workshops, where, you can program the water you drink to achieve any result you wish.  Does it work?  Definitely.  How does it work?  It boils down to: you have to do it, focus and believe.

        Now, what's going on on our planet, right this second?  Water issues.  Too much or too little (see below).   The  cardiovascular system of the earth is way out of balance.   We can help it.

        One's skin wrinkles with time because the cells hold less water than they used to. We can change this.  If you energize the water you boil food, such as corn in, the food will taste better and be healthier. It is one of our most crucial and abundant resources, we have to see it and appreciate it and honor it more.

        The source of dowsing is water.  I suggest that we take a look at this source and consider what it means, on macro and micro levels.   Sometimes all it can take is to quietly sit with a glass of water and appreciate it.  One of the reasons that dowsing has experienced such an explosion is that some higher intelligence knows our water sources are threatened and is encouraging dowsers and dowsing so we have a means to find water in the coming times.

        Learn to program your water.  Then, do it.   Those who have already learned:  Just do it.


You've probably heard of the movie "Signs" starring Mel Gibson which highlights crop circles and recently came out to the theatres and has been well received.

Mark Hazlewood has told us that a Hollywood movie based on Planet "X" will also be in the theatres soon.  Think I'm going to see "Waterworld" and "The Postman" again.

"The Hunted", starring Tommy Lee Jones (!!!) is based, in part, on the life and tracking cases of   Tom Brown, Jr.   The story of an FBI "deep woods tracker" who captures an assassin who makes a sport of hunting deer hunters in the forests outside Portland. Tom Brown, Jr. of course, wrote "Grandfather". Tom Brown also runs a survival and tracking school in New Jersey. He says business has increased 10% since 9.11.

From Shelley Bourne:  Towards the end of Shelley's morning dowsing clearing session, Shelley dowses to find out how long this clearing session will last --- or --- when does she need to clear herself again.  It could be a matter of hours, it could be a matter of days. Some times the energy is moving really quickly and you have to clear more often, sometimes less.  Add this to your clearing sessions.

Do you have the  Worry Gene?   Is it turned on?   If so, you may want to Turn it Off!

INDIGO CHILDREN  Authors come to Toronto - September 21

From time to time I've been talking about the Indigo Children, Blue Children of China, (see the  MAY 2002 Newsletter ) and other special children who are 'evolutionarily' advanced.  The "Indigo Children" book is one of the new additions to our library.  Lee Carroll and Jan Tober who wrote this book will be coming to Toronto.  Their main focus is that they channel Kryon and will be presenting the Kryon material. They will also talk about the Indigo Children. This takes place downtown at the Ramada Inn and costs $100.  Information about the Indigo Children, Kryon, Toning, DNA rejuvenation, EMF Balancing Technique and various forms of music will also be on the program.

Indigo Children have a lot to teach us about dowsing and related areas.  They often live in difficult situations because their unique abilities do not conform to the norm.  They need us to help them.  We need them to learn from them.  Let's hope we find one another.  Please be aware of unusual children who live with neighbors, relatives and may be unappreciated.  If you know about them but can not approach them directly, try communicating with them on mental levels.

Our Excellent Dowsing Talent in Toronto

Anyone who is new to dowsing and who has joined our group recently may not be aware of the excellent dowsing talent that we are fortunate to have in the GTA.  Except for Susan McNeill, President of the Boston Chapter of the ASD, and Raymon Grace, all of our monthly meeting speakers have been from the GTA.  Their information, through our newsletters, are available on the web through: .   You will see listed there talks by Dowsing Teachers Margaret Ball and Alicja Aratyn.  Alicja also has a line of (Atlantean) pendulums many of us have.  Bruce Magill, another dowsing teacher is one of our experts on Geopathic Stress and Earth Energies.  Olga Nickle teaches the Learning Path Integrated Technique which involves Hand Sensing.  Eva Angyal is the author of "Vital Knowledge", a reference book of dowsing charts.  Vital Knowledge has been re-printed, with the addition of more charts. Tracy McBurney has an NDT and Nutritional Practice where she uses dowsing.  Alan Reed is giving us a  workshop Labor Day weekend.  Pat Prevost was our most recent speaker and is well known for her excellent work with animals.   The write up on each speaker is in the newsletter following give their presentation.

More on   Planet "X"   and what you can do    vvvv

I hadn't intended to bring up Planet "X" again here, but more and more people are talking about it.  The Planet X scenario is looking more and more possible according to 90% of the people I have been speaking with.  (This was written about in the  JUNE 2002 and  Summer 2002  newsletters.)

If so, why are you interpreting it as something to freak out about?  Why are you so afraid?  If you believe in a mighty spiritual force such as the one commonly called God, and if you love this force and believe it loves you, why do you think its going to harm you?  Why aren't  you looking at this as an opportunity, as a positive change?  Why?

This does not have to be tragedy.  It's different, not awful.  It's not the end of the world.
Remember this one?? ::

What the Caterpillar calls the End of the World
The Master calls a Butterfly.

Go back and re-read Richard Bach's "Illusions".
It's probably because human beings hate change
It's probably because --- literally ---  "The hardest thing for a human being to do is to change a habit."   Think about it.  What's the first habit you have?  Survival, right?  Breathing.   Mother.  Eating.  Father.  These are some of the first habits we acquire, the hardest to let go of.

When I was planning the move from the US to Canada, I knew this, and, at times fear would grip me and I couldn't get anything done.  So, when I was in a good mental and emotional space I made a list of all of the things that needed doing.  When the fear would grip me I'd turn off my mind and work on the items on the list.  I changed my country, business, home, friends, many habits and name.  It didn't turn out so badly, did it?  It's not necessarily bad, just different.

What one of you told me was that you were glad to find out about Dome Homes, which you hadn't known about before.  Also, you have such a great feeling of gratitude --- for everything you now have here on this planet.  Every item, every moment is so special and appreciated.

Possibly related to the Planet "X" scenario is the the Native "Red Sky" prophecy.  "Night of the Red Sky, The Prophetic Vision of 'Grandfather'.  In the 1920s, an Apache wise man had a Vision of four prophecies that foretold death and destruction for mankind, unless we incorporate Spirit in our daily lives. Two of these prophecies may already have come true."   This is in an article appearing in the December 1999 issue of  Nexus Magazine , written by Tom Brown, Jr., as he tells us about this prophecy he received from Grandfather. You can read this article on Internet.

We hear about many Hopi prophecies, prophecies that are letting us know about major upcoming cosmic changes.  Why always the Hopis?  Why not other tribes?  We have a new tape in our library from  Peter Champoux , who discovered the continental Gaia Matrix and the Arkhom core geometry of the American Northeast, gave a presentation at the ASD convention this past June on "The Geometry of Landscape".  Peter said that the Hopis are the ones who hold it all together.  They are the ones who have the knowledge.  In more ways than one, he compared them to the Tibetans.

Larry accompanied Raymon early this summer on a 6 week tour to the northwest. Larry said that at most of the places they stopped at, they were being asked about Planet "X", i.e., is it so and what do you expect.

Are things changing?  Just take a look at the tremendous changes that have happened on this planet since our last newsletter, just over a month ago.  We have difficulty noticing tremendous changes because things have been changing so quickly for so long we have become inured to change.

Imagine that you have a 100 watt light bulb in a lamp with a dimmer switch.  The light is on, at full wattage.   Every hour you lower the brightness by about another 5 watts.  5 watts is not much.  It might not even be noticeable.  What happens at the end of 18 hours?  You have gone from 100, 95, 90...60,...10.  You are now seeing 10 watts of light.  Not much.  Not much at all.  But the changes were so subtle --- even in such a short time --- you didn't even notice it. 20 years ago we would have said lower it 5 watts a week, 5 years ago, 5 watts a day.  Now its 5 watts an hour as the time between the seconds is shrinking.

This past winter has been the toughest winter in Europe in recorded history. This flooding all took place in one week!

In mid August, hundreds of people have died, millions are homeless around the planet, due to flooding.

In Central Europe, so far, in Russia, Austria, Germany, Slovakia, there has been tremendous damage, flooding which has not been seen in centuries:

The flooding is being called the worst in a century in Austria, where thousands have been evacuated from the Salzburg and Upper Austria provinces. In Russia, at least 58 people in the Black Sea region were killed by flooding last week.

In the Slovak capital Bratislava, the Danube reached its highest point in 50 years on Friday, but was expected to stay inside its banks. Officials in the Hungarian capital Budapest said they too were closely monitoring water levels on the Danube.

"This is the highest level that has ever been recorded in Dresden," the town's mayor, Ingolf Rossberg, told Reuters. He added that about a quarter of the town's population of 480,000 had been evacuated

THE LANDSLIDE crashed into 10 villages in the middle of the night in Xinping county, about 200 km (120 miles) south of Kunming, the Yunnan provincial capital.
       At least 24 people were confirmed dead and 43 were missing with little hope they would be found alive, officials and media said.
       “We have never seen such a mudslide. One like this is very rare, it is record-making,” a Xinping county official told Reuters by telephone.
       The landslide struck after days of heavy rain and local weather officials predicted that more downpours on Friday could trigger further landslides, Xinhua said.
       Yunnan, a province of 35 million people criss-crossed by mountains and rivers, borders Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar and has some of China's most stunning scenery.
        The confirmed death toll from that disaster had risen to 16 by late Thursday, Xinhua said. Local officials said there was little hope of finding survivors and the final tally was expected to be 29 dead.
       That disaster was blamed on unusually heavy and sustained rain as well as deforestation in the hilly region that made soil on the slopes unstable.
        The killer landslides are nature's latest blow to China, which has been battling floods that have killed more than 900 people so far this year.
       Xinhua said rains and floods had killed 108 people in the central province of Hunan this month alone.
       Torrential rains had lashed the province since August 5, triggering floods and landslides that also damaged railways and highways, it said.
       The disasters had affected 38 million people in Hunan and caused more than 18 billion yuan ($2 billion) in damage.
India, Bangladesh, Nepal:
PATNA, India — Torrential rains pushed up water levels in rivers along the Himalayan foothills of South Asia on Thursday, where monsoon floods have killed more than 900 people and displaced or trapped more than 25 million.   (Approximately the population of Canada.)

At least 904 people have died in monsoon floods across India, Bangladesh and Nepal.

On the flip side, look at the drought in the US:
        Persistent and  worsening drought has spread to nearly half the contiguous United States, the government reported Wednesday.
        The National Climatic Data Center said that as of the end of July, 49 percent of the 48 contiguous states were
affected by moderate to extreme drought.
        Areas of extreme drought stretched from the Southwest to Montana and Nebraska and from Georgia to Virginia, the center reported.
        The greatest area of drought coverage to date occurred in July 1934, when moderate to extreme drought covered 80 percent of the contiguous United States.
        There was significantly below average rainfall in 27 states in July, according to the Center, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
        New York had its second driest July on record, and it was the third driest July in New Hampshire and Colorado, the center said.
Someone just sent me the lyric's from a song from a 60's prophet: Bob Dylan:
Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that the water's around you have grown
And accept that soon, you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth saving
Then you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
For the times, they are a-changing
Then comes the information out of Russia in March, from the Russian National Academy of Science, where scientists have come to the conclusion that we have moved into an area of space that is different and has a much higher energy level.

The Russians are reporting changes that are being recorded in space that have never been seen before.  The following are extracts from the report of  Dr. Dmitriev , of the Russian National Academy of Science, in Moscow:

Changes to the Leading Edge of the Heliosphere

The Sun itself has a magnetic field, and that magnetic field creates an "egg" around the Solar System that is known as the "heliosphere." The heliosphere is shaped like a teardrop, with the long, thin end of the drop pointing away from the direction in which we're traveling. The Russians have looked at the leading edge of this heliosphere, and they have observed glowing, excited plasma energy there. The Sun's heliosphere used to be 10 astronomical units deep (an astronomical unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun, approximately 93 million miles) — 10 astronomical units was the "normal" thickness of this glowing energy that we used to see at the front end of the Solar System.

Today, Dr. Dmitriev says that this glowing energy is now 100 astronomical units deep.

The Russian National Academy of Sciences doesn't give us a time-line, but the change from what was known and accepted to the way it is now represents a 1000 percent increase. And the Russians say that this change in the Sun is changing how the planets function and what kind of life they could support. They even report — but don't explain — that the DNA spiral itself is altering. They feel that the continued expansion of the heliosphere will eventually take us into a new level of energy, that there will probably be a sudden expansion of the basic harmonic wavelengths that the Sun emits as it radiates energy out of itself, and that this increase in energy emission will change the basic nature of all matter in the Solar System. That's a pretty bold statement, but it's followed by data to back it up:

The atmospheres of five of the planets and the Earth's moon are changing.

When the United States landed on the moon in 1969, it found no atmosphere. Since then, the earth's moon is growing an atmosphere that wasn't there before, made up of a compound that Dr. Dmitriev refers to as "Natrium." This new atmosphere is now 6,000 kilometers deep.

The earth's atmosphere in the upper levels is forming HO gas that was not there before. It simply did not exist in the quantity that it does now. The Russians say it's not related to global warming and it's not related to CFCs or fluorocarbon emissions or anything like that. It's just showing up.

The Martian atmosphere is getting sizably thicker than it was before. The Mars Observer probe in 1997 lost one of its mirrors, which caused it to crash. This happened because the atmosphere was about twice as dense as NASA had calculated. Basically, the wind on that little mirror was so high that it blew it right off.

The atmospheres of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also are changing, according to the Russians, but they didn't explain.

The brightness of the planets is changing.

Venus is showing marked increases in its overall brightness.

Jupiter's energetic charge has risen so high that there is actually a visible tube of ionizing radiation that's formed between the surface of Jupiter and its moon Io. You can actually see the luminous energy tube in photographs that have been taken recently.

Is our solar system, is our planet changing?  It's already changed.   Will the Earth Changes take place?  They have already and continue to do so.

Mark gave a workshop in Denver in August for the Global Sciences Wings Convention. (Harald McCoy also presented at that workshop). James McCanney, one of the main astrophysicists he receives information from, also attended.

He told them exactly what to expect the last 12 months prior to a planet X type object passing us in 2003. He explained that the sun acts as a capacitor and how the object would first start causing the capacitor of the sun to eject continually, as is happening now, and what that would mean to earth's weather etc.  Everything has happened exactly on earth and the sun, for this theoretical 12 month countdown to have started in June 2002.

(888) 609-5006 is the number to order James McCanney's book, "Planet X Comets and Earthchanges".

Some of the Toronto Dowsers are beginning to make preparations.  If you would like to be included in this, or have more questions than can be answered here, send an email to:

 Mark Hazlewood , author of the Planet "X" book, Blindsided will probably give another presentation in Toronto, to interested Toronto Dowsers, but before the next newsletter is out (around the end of September).  Date, location, cost, are not confirmed.  Keep checking with: Planet X update .  Please check that site first.  If you don't have access to the Internet and would like to attend, phone:  (416) 322 - 0363   10-8.

When I was a teen, I remember scoffing at an article I read that said that in the future we would have to pay a lot of money for air, for water, and that electronics goods would be real cheap.   Are we consciously willing to face that water now costs more than gasoline?  What do you pay for a bottle of water?  What do you pay for a liter of gasoline?   Don't you think we need drastic changes?   How much longer can things continue, as well intentioned people seem to have lost control over taking good care of this Planet, each other and themselves.  Those who have gained control of the planet are destroying it.   A real good shake is needed.  Very unfortunately, a shake of this kind often leads to the destruction of good property as well.

Did you see Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977)?  The main characters were all drawn by some mysterious inner force to a seemingly remote location at the same time.  Their compulsions estranged them from their families and brought together in to new families those who felt these compulsions.   This is one of the best movies of all times.   See it if you haven't seen it already, or, see it again.   Many people say something, cosmic, is happening --- soon.  If it's Planet "X", in May 2003, or something else, a little sooner, a little later.  Something.  I'm just asking you to be aware, and, prepare.  At least prepare yourself mentally.  Without fear.

See what's happening.  Figure out what you need to do.  Start making changes.  Start changing habits.  So far, from the dowsing questions we have been asking, we have asked if this is going to take place.  The probability is a strong yes.  Can we change it?  A strong no.  However ---  if there are areas where there are a significant number of people with a high enough consciousness, those areas will be protected.   If you are reading this you already have a higher consciousness than most people do.

What do you think?:  There is a curious piece of information that our dowsing has given us that we would like you to verify. This is, that soon after the passage of Planet "X" most plastics will no longer be able to hold their form.  They will degrade, disintegrate.  Why, we don't know.  It could be because the earth will no longer support energies that are not beneficial to itself.  This can create problems for people who are storing things in plastic. However, if this is to take place, it can be conjectured that if something like this is being taken away from us, we will be given something in return.  Could this be related to the Schumann Resonance (Earth's background base frequency, or "heartbeat")?

There are audio tapes in our library from Mark Fulford, who speaks at ASD conventions on "non electric water access".

Dome homes were mentioned in last month's newsletter.  Now, also consider Underground homes.  Why?  Well, the dome homes can withstand high winds, but picture your dome home with a tree whizzing by at 200 mph.  Oops.

What can you do?:   The increase in conscious awareness is positively infectious and exploding. People are joining groups like ours, people who never would have considered this 20, 10, 5 or even 1 year(s) ago.   We know now, don't we, that our focus and intent can change anything in our universe.  Anything.  For it is our intent which creates our universe.

Reports are coming through, in the past couple of days, that the passage may not (or, it may?) be as close as had been anticipated.  However, the most confident reporting says that damage will be considerably lessened where there are groups of people who have a high [enough] mass consciousness.

It seems that like minded people are getting together, like the small groups that are creating themselves in our slightly larger group.  These small groups are creating new families.   This seems to be what the "new" dowsers are doing --- clearing detrimental, and then, raising --- energies that are beneficial to the most appropriate level.

Our job is to do this, to be aware, to raise our own consciousness as our individual contributions to the raising of the mass consciousness.  If you are in a location where there are enough people like yourself, that area will have a better chance at remaining safe and secure.  You are in control.  You determine your destiny.  You have a choice.

James Redfield in his  book "The Secret of Shambhala" reminds us that:

"We can now hold the vision of a spiritual world and act to bring it about through our creative power. Human culture can't progress further until we consciously use this power in the service of spiritual evolution....  We can do this in small communities, churches, circles of friends all over the world.  ... The important thing, is to begin to build a conscious 'thought' network. To link the warriors together. ... Every person who knows has to connect with everyone else in their lives who would want to know."
[The day I planned on bringing this newsletter to the printer, I received an email from Raymon.  Raymon asked that I pass this information to as many people as possible.  I'm leaving everything as is and fitting it in here.  We understand that before you pour in the "good", things work better when you first clear out the gunk.  So that this effort could be universally understood by many, Raymon did a lot of clearing for everyone.]
        *            *            *            *            *

Jonna Rae Bartges, who took Raymon's workshop emailed him recently with this powerful suggestion which is going around the world.  Raymon asks every one of you to work with us to do what Jonna Rae did.  One person, making the difference and changing the world.

Two years ago Jeni called me to see if I could connect with Cherokee Chief, Two Trees, who had recently crossed over.  He had a message he was trying to convey to Raymon Grace, one of the people who had worked with Two Trees, but it wasn't getting through.  Jeni knew I could sometimes connect with the Other Side so she asked to see if I could get anything.  Sure enough, I linked up with him, and one of the key messages he was trying to deliver was that Raymon was to be working on getting together a Sacred Circle of beings from all levels of existence in August, 2002, to discuss the future of our planet.  This meetings was to acknowledge all the prophecies from all religions that pointed to our current world situation as CRUCIAL.  It was also to work to raise the consciousness of the people on the planet so the more dramatic and cataclysmic aspects of the prophecies didn't have to materialize on the physical plan.  The meeting's message wasn't one of FEAR as much as CHOICE.  We could choose to raise our awareness and heal ourselves, and the planet, or we could do nothing, and the prophecies could play out.
"  Raymon has published the most amazing and powerful little book, "The Future is Yours.  Do Something About It!"  which jarred and inspired me.  He stressed that everyone has the divine power to heal and affect positive change.  But too rarely do we accept the responsibility.  Raymon and I talked about the possibility of getting literally thousands of people, during this month which was revealed in my vision, to direct their energies to healing the planet.  That's the basis of the Global Call To Action which I channeled and Raymon checked with Spirit.

On Monday, August 26 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 5:00 p.m. Pacific, please join us in a global network to raise the energy and consciousness of the Earth.  All types of positive healing energy - dowsing, Reiki, prayer, chanting, meditation, tai chi, drumming, EVERYTHING - should be directed to the waters, the land, the people, the animals, the governments, the religious institutions and the past, present, and future of our planet.  For a minute, an hour or as long as you wish, please direct your thoughts and energy to this effort.  Our collective goal is to unilaterally claim our divine power and ability to heal, balance and protect the Earth from any and all negative energies.  Please share this message with everyone you know.  Thank you for caring, and doing something about it!  The future is ours to create now.  "

All the best, Jonna Rae Bartges, La Costa, CA

Toronto Dowser  Ruth Kelly  is in the NEWS for GHOST BUSTING!
 Globe and Mail , Saturday, August 17, Page  L3
"I don't swing bloody chickens or burn incense," says Kelly, who is known as a "gatekeeper" in spiritual circles. "What I do is still taboo, but I look upon ghost cleaning as a service. People don't need to suffer unnecessarily. People move because they have ghosts. Or they have trouble selling their houses."  "Happy people do not become ghosts. Ghosts are clumsy leftover pieces of energetic baggage. I tell them it's time to go. It's an issuance of grace."

Changing your Health Habits   qqqq

DOWSING:  Ask: "Is there anything in any of these sections that is 80% or more beneficial to me"?

If yes, See which sections are beneficial to you and use the information.
Section:        I        II        III        IV        V        VI        VII        VIII

Section I:  Intro:
With all the talking about changes coming, a major part of what you do can be to change your health status which includes, of course, changing your eating habits (don't like the word "diet".  It connotes deprivation.)

Traditionally, those who lived the longest, healthiest lives are those who lived in cold, arid, high climates, worked hard and didn't over eat.  The Hunzas are the most well known grouping, and they, too, have been corrupted and weakened by modern "conveniences".  They have a highly mineralized geology which gives them mineralized water as well as good minerals --- especially in the apricots and apricot seed insides they would eat, but it was later on discovered that their salt gave them unusual benefits.  They had to climb up higher than where they lived to obtain it.  So the exercise from the climbing, and the fact that it was precious and therefore not overly used, also helped their health.   Now, the western world helps provide them with salt so their taste buds are satisfied, they use too much of it, do not get the health benefits from their own specially mineralized salt and they do not get the exercise in climbing from it.  (adapted from Renee Taylor's "Hunza Health Secrets for Long Life and Happiness")

In not eating a lot, traditional cultures practice --- what we call today using fancy words:  "Caloric Restriction".  We have a choice.  They didn't. (They would probably call it "hunger".)   During rationing times, in Europe, during World War II, the rates of disease such as heart disease and high blood pressure went way down.

Caloric Restriction can be a good thing for us. Again, everything in balance.

2 days after I wrote the above section I get a call from Bill Askin.  Bill said "I think right now seems like a good time to watch what you're eating. With this energy changing our whole body is changing and has to accommodate to it. Be careful what you are eating. Watch the combinations. The energy changes our body chemistry and we have to watch what we eat. Be careful what you're eating. Watch the combinations. The energy is in the food and everything is changing.  I dowse everything I eat."

Section II: Cravings:
What you want to do is get nutrition, not calories.  Often, cravings are a result of the body requiring nutrients.  We are fooled in to attempting to satisfy the craving by eating something that is disguised as food and can loosely be called "food" but is not nourishing to the body, in fact it can harm our health by being calorie rich and nutrient poor.  So we eat it, are not satisfied, still have the craving and eat more.  The trick is to see if this is the reason for these cravings (you might have other cravings that result from different reasons.)

The junk food industry thrives on man's 3 cravings, which we inherited from the cave man days:
      Sugar  (simple carbohydrates, or, minerals)
Which are necessary for survival, for fuel and for the essential organs.  (Protein and other nutrients are important, too, of course, but not an immediate survival necessity.)

There are other ways to satisfy these cravings.  You know how after sports events some people crave --- and eat --- fries and beer afterwards?  They are attempting to replenish the fuel that was used up:  fat, salt and sugar and create homeostasis.

If you are aware that you have these cravings, try consuming more true nutrients.

Fats:  Take EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids), example:  Flax Oil, Hemp Oil, Borage, Etc.
Salt:  Sea Weeds:  Munch on Dulse, like popcorn.  Add dulse to salads
Sugar:  Fruit

Remember the difference between eating an orange that is quite sweet, and one that is not?  The sweet one is grown in mineral rich soil.  Our taste buds often crave sweet so we will be led to consume foods with a high and active mineral component.

Section  III:  Coughs:
I had my own health scare recently, and hope to help others here with lessons I hope I learned.  Most of you know I have not had a lot of energy these past several months.  I have not been taking care of myself, nutritionally, and have not been getting exercise.  Drinking tea most of the day and "catching" a meal in the evening does not a healthy person make.

In May, I developed a horrible cough.  The intense hacking and barking lasted for six weeks, then it toned down for another four.  Of course, had to take place during the busiest and most travelled and fun month of the year for me.  A good portion of this cough was as a result of contamination by air borne pollutants.  One person knew of this as 'the 90 day cough'.   Even my lymph nodes were affected.  It started out with a painful sore throat, stuffiness, phlegm.  During the whole time the trachea felt scraped raw and could not tolerate cold.

If I had been taking better care of myself, and thus created a stronger immune system, I am fairly certain I would not have been so adversely affected. A vicious cycle was created - weakened because I depleted myself of nutrients, I lacked the strength to care for myself to eat right and got even weaker.

I've had about phone conversations with about 20 of you since March, with various health problems, such as coughs, flu's, heart problems, borderline diabetes, weaknesses, digestive systemic weakening --- just really strange things going on.  Many people also no longer taking their health for granted and finally doing what we know we have to do.  So in this issue, and the next few months, I hope to highlight lesser known things you can do for yourself.  If there is something you would like to add, comment on or ask about, please do contact me.
I am sharing with you here, the various things I did for the cough.  Some worked better than others.  There are dry coughs, wet coughs, hacking coughs.  What works well for one might exacerbate another.  If you have a cough, you might try dowsing from this list:

Gargle with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide in water.
Oil of oregano
Hot cayenne pepper (in a capsule or in something such as a base of propolis honey)
Maca, Cat's Claw (Una de Gato)
Use of the Neti Pot
Pau D'arco tea
Echineccea with Golden Seal
Homeopathic Drosera;  Homeopathic combinations
Large doses of Vitamin C Complex, zinc lozenges
Propolis (in "gum" form)
Quest's  Wild Cherry / Slippery Elm Bark Formula
Raymon's "Thunder Potion" *
Castor Oil Pack  (from Edgar Cayce)
Rife Machine, Radionics

* Raymon shares this recipe with us for his "Thunder Potion" which he got from Rolling Thunder:
        Take:        2 drops eucalyptus oil
                        7 drops peppermint
                        7 drops anise / fennel
                        5 drops tea tree oil
Put in a cup of water, heat just until it produces vapor (do not boil), remove from heat, Breathe In. Use as needed. This is good for colds, sinus, bronchitis, flu. Olga Nickle shared a similar recipe with us that she uses in a bath.

By this time a month had passed, I was still in great discomfort and desperation finally led to intelligence.  I went down to Herbie's Herbs, a health food store which is on Queen Street W just east of Bathurst owned by Toronto Dowsers members Lambros and Elias, telling them what I was going through.

Lambros suggested I use Liquid Propolis.  This was the best yet!  I was using the propolis, but in a different form.  I felt an immediate relief.
He also suggested I take a Chinese cough syrup which is one of the few all natural cough syrups.
And:  drink Oregano tea (a tea made out of steeped Oregano leaves), with honey
And:  Wet a wash cloth in hot water.  Put a few drops of eucalyptus oil on it.  Keep on the throat.

Things were improving, but not fast enough.  I went down the following week and met with their herbalist.

So I started making a tea which I made every morning and kept in a thermos with:
Licorice, Marshmallow Root, Black Cohosh, Plantain, Elecampane, and Yerba Santa in a Pau d'arco base.  (Note: I'm listing these herbs as an example.  This mixture was made up specifically for my situation.  You can have your own mixture tailor made for your own situation.)

Lambros and Elias will offer members of the Toronto Dowsers a 10% discount on their purchases at Herbie's Herbs.  556 Queen Street West.  Please show your Toronto Dowsers membership card.  We will be having a Field Trip to Herbie's Herbs one winter Saturday or Sunday.

Section IV:   Energetic remedies
As you know, we are in a time of much higher vibrations and unusual, unnatural maladies and imbalances, caused by chemicals, pollutants and the unusual mixtures of substances travelling from one part of the globe to another and settling there, mixing with other substances, creating a new substance.  Unnatural, biologically engineered disease microbes are "escaping" from laboratories, getting in to our environment, adversely affecting our auras, energetic, mental, emotional, etheric and physical bodies.  (Such as the  Mycoplasms and "brucellosis bacteria" Dr. Donald Scott tells us about.) The best thing we can do for ourselves is to obtain and maintain healthy energetic and physical immune systems which we do by eating right and do our clearings.  (Concerned that Toronto residents are being set up so that they can spray malathion over the GTA, and in researching what is happening about this, I telephoned the Winnipeg Department of Health and was told they have been spraying Winnipeg with Malathion every year for years, and this year, are ignoring residents' requests to avoid certain areas.)  There are some people in our group who can not come to meetings on certain days when pollution is bad.  We need healthy immune systems.

Also, learn more about, and start using:
        Homeopathics  (Remember Boiron's "Oscillococcinum"? This can be used in place of a flu vaccine.)
        Essential Oils
        Energy healing methods such as Color therapies, color broadcasting
These are less dense, have a higher vibration and work on strengthening the whole body

Section V:  Castor Oil Packs
Famed Psychic Edgar Cayce recommends Castor Oil packs for many maladies.  It is so soothing and healing and especially excellent for the liver.  There is a wealth of information available on the use of these packs.  If you have never tried one, just do so.  This would be a honoring gift to yourself.

Castor Oil Pack Instructions
(excerpted from The Oil That Heals by William A. McGarey, M.D.)

1 -   Prepare a flannel cloth which is two or three thicknesses when folded and which measures about eight inches in width and ten to twelve inches in length after it is folded. This is the size needed for abdominal application --- other areas may need a different size pack, as seems applicable.
2-   Pour castor oil into a pan and soak the cloth in the oil. Wring out the cloth so that it is wet but not drippy with the castor oil (or simply pour castor oil onto the pack so it is soaked). Apply the cloth to the area which needs treatment.  Most often, the pack should be placed so it covers the area of the liver.
3-   Protection against soiling bed linens can be made by putting a sheet or towel underneath the body. Then a plastic covering should be applied over the soaked flannel cloth.  On top of the plastic, place a heating pad and turn it up to "medium" to begin, then to "high" if the body tolerates it. The pack should remain in place between an hour to an hour and a half.
4-  After pack is removed, cleanse abdomen with solution of baking soda in water (1 teaspoonful to a pint),  Store pack in plastic bag or other container in a cool place when not in use.  After 24 uses or less, pack should be cleaned or discarded. 
Use 3-5 days per week for 3 weeks each month until results are obtained. 
Note: Always use a high quality, cold pressed castor oil, available in health food stores.

Section  VI:  Holistic Doctors, Dentists

Do you know of a good Holistic Doctor, Dentist, Chiropractor or Homeopath  that you could recommend to us?   I'd like to try offering a listing here --- try it and let's see if it works.  Please email or call with the name and contact information and we'll make a listing in the next month or two.

Section  VII:  New Places

There is a new, large health food store and supermarket in Yorkville

 Naturally Nicer Meats opened in August and sells " Grass Fed Beef ", healthfully raised lamb and Chicken.  They are located in Thornhill, on Yonge Street just south of Hwy 7 and is owned by 2nd generation farmer Bob Kerr of Kerr Farms who is a dowser known to many of us.

Section VIII:  Sleep.      Do you have trouble with sleep?
Do you have trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep, waking up rested?

One of you so generously donated to me the use of your cottage right on the lake at Kincardine where I spent a totally idyllic laid back relaxing week.   No telephone.  No computer.   No shower.   Sooo quiet.  Sooo dark at night to nurture the pineal gland.  Thank you STEVE for your generousity.  This was a life saver!

Do you have electricity running in your bedroom?  Is your clock radio near your head?  It's like microwaving your brain. Try emptying your bedroom of electrical appliances for one night, especially the clock radio and see if the quality of your sleep improves.

Pineal Gland health:  Primitive man slept in caves.  Caves were dark.  Primitive man went to sleep when the sun went down and woke up at sunrise.  For optimal health of the pineal gland we need to sleep in rooms that are totally dark.  If your room is not totally dark, you can experiment one night by totally covering the windows.  If you feel better in the morning, get some new window coverings.

If you wake up in the middle of the night, yes, it can be kidneys, it can be changing hormones.  It could also be that the brain does not have enough energy (carbohydrates) and is keeping you awake so you will give it the energy it requires.  You can give it this energy and the relaxing amino acid, L-Tryptophan. L-TRYPTOPHAN is the only substance that can be converted into serotonin.  Since serotonin, in turn is converted into melatonin, L-TRYPTOPHAN  plays a role in balancing mood and sleep patterns.  (adapted from  NuBrain  health products)

This is why it has long been suggested that you have cookies and milk before you go to sleep.  Milk contains L-tryptophan and it works more quickly when combined with a carbohydrate.

Another way to have a relaxing night's sleep is to drink a cup of hot chamomile tea with honey and a cookie.

Some people take their calcium/magnesium supplements before bed as these minerals help sleep, and help certain parts of the body restore while at rest.  A drink made of warm sesame seed milk (sesame seeds have a very high calcium component) with carob and honey is also relaxing and healthful before bed time.

Our LIBRARIAN:      Helen Evans
We have a lot of new materials for the library, including 48 new audio tapes, 6 video tapes and about 2 dozen books.  We have some books on basic dowsing, books focusing on children such as "The Indigo Children" and "ESP for Kids".  We have a lot of material on Sacred Geometry and Earth Energies and material that combines the two as earth grids and earth vortexes are examined.  We have several books, audio and video tapes  Robert Gilbert , the sacred geometry guru, whose materials you enjoyed last year. (Robert is talking with us about coming up in the spring.)   We also have the following book titles: "How to Make a Million in Stocks",  "The Art and Craft of Map Dowsing",  "Power vs. Force",  "The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe", "Seven Keys to Creation", "Finding Treasure", "Thought-Forms", "The Art of the Labyrinth", "Healing the Heart of the Earth", "Points of Cosmic Energy", etc.  Sounds exciting, yes?  We have the out of print dowsing classic by Kenneth Roberts, "Henry Gross and His Dowsing Rods".

We also have a CD for the computer (PC format) which is a continuously changing screen saver of sacred geometry shapes. The creator of this CD suggest that Scalar Wave energies may be produced.

Expect our procedures to differ somewhat to make things easier for our hard working librarians and to make sure our precious library materials are promptly and properly returned and cared for.  We are still experimenting with procedures to find the best ways to satisfy all needs.

THE   Wednesday, September 11th, 2002 MEETING WILL BE ON:


Robert Azzopardi: The Cameron Aurameter
Margherita "Crystal Lotus": Crystal Pendulums
Edit Zaj: using a "Sensible"

Robert Azzopardi is a well known dowser and health practitioner in the Toronto area.  He has been using the Cameron Aurameter for 30 years.  This is a dowsing tool --- a highly sensitive one --- that some have seen but few really know about and understand.  It requires focused training and great concentration.  Robert says it takes a few months to learn how to use it and perhaps at least another 6 before one is proficient in its use.

Robert's main use for the aurameter is to find out individuals respond to nutritional products.  Robert is a distributor of Awareness Products --- the most well known are:  Harmony, Experience and Clear.  The products help to clear the body of parasites, perform detoxification, cleansing, improving colon health and build the immune system.  The aurameter is the tool he uses to determine which, if any, products work best for whom.

He prefers the aurameter over a pendulum for this purpose because the aurameter works on the auric field of the body. The body can become addicted to certain substances and therefore other forms of information gathering might not be as accurate. The aurameter is not body dependent, as the aura is not only a physical entity but also a spiritual entity.  Bring products with you for testing.  Robert will demonstrate this technique with a few people.

Margherita "Crystal Lotus":   Crystal workshop facilitator Margherita Vondrak is an advanced Graduate of the Crystalline Academy in Hawaii.  She was born in Sweden and holds a degree in Math and Chemistry from the University of Stockholm.  An artist first, Margherita incorporates creative elements to assist others in releasing emotions and heal destructive belief patterns.

Margherita is also teaching an ongoing Crystal Healing Certificate Program in Ontario, incorporating creative elements such as dowsing, colour movement and sound to release emotions and heal destructive belief patterns.

Margherita, a long time dowser, makes pendulums out of crystals.  Some people love using crystal pendulums.  Others are wary of them, as they feel that crystals store energy and this stored energy may influence the dowsing response.  Margherita, and Crystal Workshop co-facilitator, Tara Brox, will speak to us on this topic, letting us know the pros and cons of using crystals for pendulums, and which crystals are best to use.  If we like, she will also set up a workshop for us this fall where we make crystal pendulums.

Through the use of the crystal pendulum one comes to a place of self awareness, using the crystal you have chosen as a lens to discover the potential dowser within.

Edit Zaj, Reiki Master, uses a dowsing tool from Hungary that is new to many of us.  Edit calls it a "Sensible"  or  "Sensibool".  It is simple to use, unusual and inexpensive.  You'll have fun seeing and trying this one out!
