FOR OUR SEPTEMBER 12th meeting:
October 2004
The Toronto Dowsers brought
Druid, Stone Circle Builder, Geomancer, Shaman, Author, Speaker
Ivan McBeth
Face to face with one of  the major adventures in his life
From which he has only recently returned.
Now Ivan prepares us for
the next  Millenium, or more..... as we enter:
2012: Gateway Into a New Awareness

October 12, 2004 was Ivan's introduction and welcome to Canada.  His stay in this country was somewhat longer than expected, as when he tried to return to the US, to his wife of 2 weeks, he was refused re-admission by US border guards.   Ivan remained out of his adopted country until November 2005 when the paperwork was completed and he could be re-united with his bride.

23 months later, Ivan returns to us, to tell us his story, and share with us crucial information that is very different from his previous visit and critical to help us prepare  for the next 6 years.  This is actually a preparation for more than the next millenium.

Ivan tells his story, which started in the same year as the Harmonic Convergence.  Not too happy, he went to Israel and it was in the Sinai Desert where he found the magical gateway, the magic portal through which he walked and from which he has not yet returned.

Ivan will speak to us about the importance of the Harmonic Convergence, the prophecy foretold by Mayan, Aztec, Toltec creator sky-god and wise legislator Quetzalcoatl,.  This time, which began August 16-17, 1987, gave us 25 years to prepare for the end of the Mayan Calendar, which is the end of  cycle.  The role of the Mayans is the role of  TimeKeeper.   They monitor the unfolding of time and predict important nodal points and notify the planet about these changes.

As Gaia is important to humans, Humans are important to Gaia and to this prophecy and unfoldment.  We need to cooperate with one another and it is up to us as to how this will take place.

Ivan will tell us why we need to return home.  Something mega is happening.  We are approaching the final lap.  We have been graced with a 25 year warning, we have 6 more years left when one of the important nodes in the journey of Gaia will occur.

A point in 2012 is the IGNITION POINT.   The IGNITION POINT is THE ONE point in the Zodiac which points to the center of the galaxy, where there shall be the change from one cycle, the cycle we know, to another cycle.  This new cycle is the place where Spirit floods in and activates everything.  [NOTE:   Do you remember the movie "Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider"???   Rather dramatically, naturally, in this movie there is THE point where Light floods in and everything changes.]   Everything, everywhere forever after --- ushering the Golden Age -- IF --- IF --- we help it to happen.

There won't be any Golden Age if we wait for it to happen.  It can only happen if we prepare ourselves, if we prepare for one inside ourselves, that we can usher in one for the outside and for others forever after.   Because:

The power has arrived to change things forever.  It is there for us to grasp and to do things with it --- not just to wait.  As the power and the energies we have available to us increase, so will we actually construct our Destiny.

If you are reading this newsletter from Internet:
A newsletter is published for each Toronto Dowsers meeting.  A hard copy is mailed to each of our members.  Membership dues pay for this newsletter.  Members receive many more benefits and more information than the newsletter. If you live in the GTA, and read these newsletters often, we request that you become a member.  We have members across Canada, in the US and in other countries.  We welcome you to join our group.  Enjoy.  Thank you
 What is our Destiny?  It is to become a strong individual, an empowered human being.  We need to activate ourselves and become ourselves, to become:
Authentic Grounded Empowered Human Beings.  Only then can we create this Golden Age and a new way of being.

How can we prepare?  The most important thing to do as we prepare is:   To align ourselves -- each one of us -- with Gaia.

Q:  How can we truly experience that, to feel it, know it, be it?
A:  Invite Gaia into our space

Ivan will take us through this gateway.   He tells us that the way to make energy move in a big way is to make a commitment.   Once we have consciously committed ourselves to align ourselves with Gaia and to accompany Gaia on her journey, she shall take care of the rest.    We want as many people as possible affirming and reaffirming this so as to send that energy to the heart of Gaia.   Come, Commit, Pass Through

[NOTE:   The Passing Through  may be considered reminscent of  Machaelle Small Wright's  ring-pass-not (the limiting edge of your reality), about integrating the fantastic into the mundane in your life, and that all the things you do in your mundane life lay the groundwork/foundation for all the fantastic coming in and expanding your reality.   Machaelle Small Wright created Perelandra, the MAP work and highlighted Dr. Derald Langham's Genesa Crystal and how it can bring harmony to your environment, especially the garden.]

AFTERWARDS:    I went through Ivan's  ceremony in June.    A week later, staying in my friend's cabin in the woods, that I visit every year, I had a very different experience.  For the first time I could almost feel --- almost -- a mutual communication with the woods creatures.   I had made the commitment to Gaia during that ceremony and I could feel drawing closer to her spirit.

MICHAEL BASTINE:   Remember when Michael Bastine (our June 2006 speaker), said at the beginning of his talk:  "There is no such thing as The End of the World."

SPECIAL TREAT:  We hope to have. at the end of our presentation, a visit from Graham and Michael of ChocoSol.   [NOTEThis will be ONLY if their shipment arrives, which has been delayed several times.  At time of printing, we are still waiting.]   They have been in Mexico for the last 3 years and have returned to Toronto with pure, absolutely divine scrumtious fantabulous exquisite CHOCOLATE! that they offer as a drink.  This is the kind of  CHOCOLATE!  that will make you swoon as you consume it and smile afterwards.  Why this?  Why now?::: Because:

  • Ivan's presentation arises from prophecy from the Mayan Calendar.  Graham and Michael discuss the source of this chocolate, and that the Mayans have been, and currently remain, the stewards of this very special chocolate.   This is our "Mayan Connection".
  • My first taste of ChocoSol created a BOINGGG reaction, just like the first time I tasted coffee made from freshly roasted beans.  This chocolate is REAL.  Its like all your life, your only taste of strawberries has been noname strawberry jam.  And then someone gives you a homegrown strawberry grown in good soil.  And my dad was a chocoholic
  • Why not?   Please see the notes of Chocolate from Dr. Joseph Mercola in our Focus on Health.
  • Connecting even further with the Earth.  And the Grids.
    Words to You, with love, from Mary Hardy
    Rev. Mary Hardy, Ph.D.,  www.templeofsakkara.com, author of  "PYRAMID ENERGY, the Philosophy of God, the Science of Man" and  "The Alchemist’s Handbook to Homeopathy", is a friend of ours and was our February 2003 speaker.   Mary has a special connection to Mary Magdalene and to the Knights Templar.  Mary "found" The Mound for us, the missing element for our logo, and woke us up to the importance of the grids of the earth.   When she was here she told us:  "The Responsibility of Dowsers is to Protect and Maintain the Grids of the Earth."

    It is because of Mary that we met Daniel Kolos, an Egyptologist and that Daniel joined our group,;  that Eleanore Gaspar took William Henry's tour to Egypt this past May.

    Mary  is also a homeopath and a great believer in Essential Oils and Young Living Essential Oils.   Mary and her husband Dean have had a weekend summer conference every year for the past 27 years and several of us attend.  In 2004, 20 Toronto Dowsers were there, most who camped on her lawn and swam in her lake.  This past year was the biggest conference ever, with over 300 people in attendance.  Alicja Aratyn was one of the speakers as was William Henry and Montauk writer Peter Moon.

    Because of a number of "coincidences" including the timing of their book, it is thought that Mary's husband, Dean, was the catalyst for Egyptologists, etc., to renew their interest in the Egyptian pyramids.  This happened about 30 years ago.   August 2006, Mary tells us again:

    "The importance of our antennae is to put love, light and the activation of the Church of Love into the grid. Many times, we are reminded of how important the antennae system that we have here, and are being trained to use is.

    "People have to learn that there are many dimensions around  Mother Earth, and the entities from these dimensions maintain and operate our antennae system. They are the whales and the dolphins, the Indian Shamans, the Knights Templars, the ETs the Fairies and the Divas, the Sasquach, and many, many more. This is a planet of free will. If a small percentage of us wish to contact these dimensional people and use the training through the vortexes that we have received here, we could bring this planet back to a stable reality.

    "The whole purpose of our antennae system is to bring inner peace to this planet.

    "Finding inner peace is one of our keys to making a better world.     Here are some signs and symptoms of inner peace:
    *  A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
    *  An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
    *  A loss of interest in judging other people.
    *  A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
    *  A loss of interest in conflict.
    *  A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
    *  Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation, etc.
    "This planet cannot have peace until we, that can understand inner peace, find it. And when just a small percentage of us are willing to find inner peace, we can bring this consciousness to the planet. We have a huge antennae system that will allow us to do this.   Even greater than the HAARP antennae system that George W. Bush has put up to promote the war on terror.   The British and American Governments are about to go bankrupt.   The game of terror has to be played, or they will go bankrupt."
    Due to popular demand, Sandee Mac is returning October 2006, for a presentation and some workshops.  During her presentation here November 2005, we were most interested in her experiences with (Western) Tibetan Lama Madi Nolan, walking between the worlds and working with the energy there.  One of the neat things in the workshop this summer is when she showed us how to see, slow and reverse damage to our own energy fields.  Sandee works with energy the way Escoffier worked with cuisine.

    Sandee is constantly on the road.  Since her visit to us, she has had further classes with Madi and has been given permission to teach some of her techniques.  Which she will teach to us.  She has also been to Tibet!   We have not yet worked out the details as to the content of the workshops. If you have a special request, please do get it to me quickly!

    The Fall 2006 Continuing Education session is now The Toronto District School Board is now accepting registrations for its Continuing Education programs for Fall 2006.   They have many excellent programs, mostly in the evening where you meet once a week for 9 or 10 weeks.  Most courses seem to cost around $114.     You can get their catalogue at any Toronto Public Library branch or go online at:  www.learn4life.ca.  To get to their catalogue, click on this link: TDSB CONT ED CAT.

    Some of the courses I have taken:  Reflexology, knitting, kayaking, Build and Repair your own Computer, Adobe Illustrator.  The teachers are quite competent in their area and they are also good teachers and you meet all sorts of different people in class who you would probably not encounter in other ways.

    Here are some of the areas:  Arts, Business, Communications, Computers, Crafts, Dance, Fitness, Wellness, Health, Food, Interior Design, Languages, Sewing, Sports, Music, Self Development, Pets, and much more.  I'd love to take the Mehndi class but they meet on Tuesday evenings.  Why Mehndi?  Mehndi is the art of applying Henna for temporary tattoos.  I want to learn how to do this for myself to use Henna to apply BioSignatures.

    MICHAEL BASTINE:   Our June 2006 speaker

    "There is no such thing as the end of the world" was Michael's opening teaching to us.

    Michael told us many stories.  Stories of healing.   Stories about his travels with Mad Bear and meeting others, such as Rolling Thunder.  And his own stories as well.  We could have sat there for hours, listening to him.   Mad Bear was one of the last of the old time native elders and a superb healer.   He lived in the Buffalo, New York area.   Doug Boyd wrote a book about him.

    Mike asked Mad Bear if one of his remedies ever did not work.
    Mad Bear said "No".
    Mike:  "Come on.  No doctor ever gets it 100% of the time."
    Mad Bear: "I didn't say I doctored all of them."
    Mad Bear could read the individual.   He knew if he could or should help the person -- or not.

    He was not secretive, but he was very respectful.
    It is important to be respectful, but you do not have to agree with it.
    As long as you respect and protect your medicine, it will respond to you in the same wayu.

    Bowel Health:  As we age, the moisture in our bowel gets depleted.  Mad Bear had the client make a dish of okra, tomatoes and garlic, to match the degree of slipperiness as the bowel., which the client would eat as directed.   To restore proper moisture to the bowel.

    There are just as many senses (sensors?)  in the gut as in the brain.

    Evil, is, a consequence.
    When there are no humans involved, there is no evil.
    Evil is the absence of the love of the creator.
    Evil is something you can learn from.
    Evil feeds on fear, on anger
    Calm yourself.  Realize you don't need it.  Tell it it is time to leave.

    Atlantis was the first place on the planet for people.  Sky Woman came down and started life there.  It was the first Turtle Island.

    The elders knew there was a change, that the path of spirituality was to end.   The "Hopi"  means  "The Peaceful Ones."

    Michael met Gordon Michael Scallion.  Mad Bear had told him similar predictions 25 years before he met GMS.   He spoke about all the groups who migrated.  Mad Bear spoke about how you find your purpose as to what you are supposed to do in life.

    Dyani Wahoo (who is also greatly revered by Ivan McBeth and David Icke) sponsored a trip to India for Mad Bear and Michael.  And set up a meeting that they had, for three hours, with the Dalai Lama.

    The Harmonic Concordance (2003) was a Harmonious Agreement.  In Phase I, the Indigo Children came in.  The Earth is reconfiguing the Energy Grid.   Soul groups are coming in now, the ones the earth grid will allow, such as the Blues, Indigos and Violet.  These are the most harmonious.  However, the masses are interfering with what is needful to take place.

    We are getting closer to Galaxy alignment.   The earth is in flux.  Ley lines are being reconfigured.  This has never happened before.  We are preparing for a millenium of peace.

    We are seeing a polarity change.  It is tied to the Mayan Calendar.  The year is our year 2012.  The earth and the sun will be in exact alignment with the cetner of the galaxy.

    We all have this impending feeling of something.  To see what is around the corner, you have to go around the corner.

    Any time between now and ... 2008-2010, expect that major planetary events will take place.  We are going to see more of these events.  Within this next year, we will see continental land loss.   Get involved.  Choose your path.

    We love Michael's realness, true humility, sense of humor, his knowingness, stories, the lack of self importance, the respect he has for each of us.   We all fell so in love with Michael.  And, as a rare honor, at the end, he received a standing ovation.  THANK YOU MICHAEL!

    We have  over  400?  500?  items in our library.  There are another 398 items waiting to be catalogued and entered into our inventory and then into the physical library itself, items that have been donated and/or purchased these past 3 years, including this summer, that have not made it into the library.  [This does not include the 23 CDs from the 2006 ASD Convention that I brought back.]

    I buy most of our items when I go to Vermont.  Yes, there are a lot that come from purchases at the ASD Convention.   During my annual summer visit to Vermont, I have uncovered several outlets in New England that have high quality books that interest our members.  Not only that, they are hard to find, perhaps out of print, and discounted!   Such a dream to get treasured books at good prices!

    One of them is a used bookstore that has superb, carefully chosen items.  So the price is half price.  Then, because I'm a known customer who buys in quantity, we receive a 15% discount!   I found another person who comes to New England annually from Hawaii.   He is a long time metaphysician with a fabulous library that he is selling off bit by bit.   There are 7 places I regularly visit, passing delightful hours in, picking books and bringing them back.

    Then there are the books that have been donated.  Many thanks to Sylvia Christensen and Christopher Evans who have donated excellent books.

    Last summer, at Mary Hardy's conference, Mary asked Shelley and I if we wanted books from her library.  We almost ran her over speeding to the shelves.  So we have books -- donated by Mary Hardy -- from her personal library.   They have been sitting here for over a year, on my floor because they are not yet in our library.

    We still don't have a home for the library.  I spent some time this summer going through various classifieds.  The least expensive appropriate space I could find would cost us $600 / month.  That's too much.   My sense about this is -- it is a question of timing and there is one piece that is missing from our equation.  I wish the time on this one, though, would 'urry up.

    Here are some of the sitting here items that have not yet made it in to the library:

    Dowser and Human Being Extraordinaire
    of Havelock, Ontario
    passed Monday August 7th, 2006

    Bruce was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.  One of the best and most dedicated dowsers and dowsing teachers on the planet and a friend to many.

    Our fondest memory of Bruce is when he took 40 of us on a tour around the Peterborough Petroglyphs July 26, 2003.  We took the photo, above, when Bruce was showing us how to find a "Laughing Spot".  Thanks, Brucie, for your wisdom and humor.   You are forever greatly missed.

    Dr. Sabina DeVita:  NEW!!!  Insititute of Energy Wellness Studies (IEWS)
    High scholastic achievement has been attained by Dr. Sabina DeVita, having proudly established  The Institute of Energy Wellness Studies (IEWS), Spring 2006, in Brampton, Ontario.

    The Canadian Examining Board of Health Care Practitioners  (CEBHCP),  a private not-for-profit, federally chartered organization which promotes health care programs of complementary medicines, has accredited  IEWS.   All diploma programs have met the CEBHCP's stringent standards for its legal designations: Certified Integrated Aromatic Sciences Practitioner C-IASP and the, Registered Integrated Aromatic Sciences Practitioner R-IASP.

    This progressive body has set standards of professional qualifications for health care practitioners in this field, and provides a forum for the development, exchange, and dissemination of knowledge and skills appropriate to the requirements of professional complementary health care practice.  This has been done in order to promote and support effective, safe, and ethical holistic health care practices.

    CEBHCP has created a new designation - Integrated Aromatic Sciences - to meet with the IEWS new aromatic program based on the French system of application of essential oils.

    IEWS offers 4 unique Diploma programs (10 months to 2 years respectively):

    Diploma in Nutrient Health Sciences PractitionerTM — Encompasses the important role of nutrition and environmental health care.  (Coming Fall 2006)

    Diploma in Integrated Aromatics Sciences PractitionerTM — Encompasses the use of organic therapeutic essential oils, Raindrop© and Vita Flex Techniques, and other related therapies to enhance wellness and promote deep relaxation.  This program is related to aromatherapy, but integrates much more in additional advanced therapeutic methods to deliver a more comprehensive education.

    Diploma in Certified Kinesiology Practitioner — Incorporates the Touch For Health Kinesiology program along with several other Kinesiologies giving you a broad perspective in balancing energy systems of individuals on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes.

    Diploma in Human Energy Field PractitionerTM — Encompasses Quantum Physics and the use of the most advanced assessment tool, the GDV Kirlian camera, to analyze energy fields of humans, animals, plants and liquids.  (Coming Fall 2006)

    From Dr.Gary Young.  The Institute of Energy Wellness Studies Inc. (I.E.W.S.) is proud to announce that Dr. Gary Young is the school's senior advisor for the aromatic sciences program.  IEWS was recently honored  as the only school in North America to receive a magnificent endorsement from the President, Founder of Young Living Company at rthe Total Health Show.

    IEWS is also proud to announce that it has  been granted the first official affiliation with the new essential oil natural health clinic in Ecuador by Dr. Gary Young.  The Institute of Energy Wellness Studies is now affiliated with Amerador Clinic Institute of Natural Medicine, Cuenca Ecuador.  This program will also lead to a Diploma in Aromatic Sciences recognized by the Federal Human Resouces Canada. This means that students can claim tuition fees and educational tax credits.   Dr. David Stewart and  Dr.Carolyn DeMarco are also participating in this endeavor.

     Dr. Sabina DeVita (Ed.D, RNCP, CBP,OSJ, DNM ,IPSP) has authored 4 books, is a sought-after international speaker (U.S., Hawaii, Russia, Ecuador, Trinidad and Barbados) holistic energy psychologist/psychotherapist and practitioner of over 20 years. She is a University of Toronto doctoral Graduate in Applied Psychology.  She is a registered nutritional Consultant Practitioner, certified Specialized Kinesiologist, (Brain gym ? Touch For Health), certified in Thought Energy Synchronization Technique-Energy Psychology, certified BodyTalk Practitioner and Certified GDV Kirlian trainer.  She is director of the Wellness Institute and her recent federally approved Energy Wellness Studies School.  She has studied over 450 hours with D. Gary Young, incorporating Young Living oils into her practices and teaching. She is also a certified instructor for "Touch for Health", One Brain, and Edu-K, Transend Vibrational Healing Cards, and Jade Esthetics electrical massotherapy.  When Dr. DeVita experienced a near collapse from environmental illness, unable to work for years, she discovered the healing powers of natural and energy medicine.

    Special Mention goes to Malca Narrol   who received a very nice writeup on page C12 of the Sunday August 6, 2006 Toronto Star in the Constant Gardener article.  Local feng shui consultant, teacher and graduate architect was consulted for advice on a garden in Ballantrae.  Congratulations, Malca!

    This time of year::   Forgiveness . . .  Fasting   . . .   At-one ment . . . Introspection . . .  Renewal

    This next month, several different events are intertwined:
        Ellie Drew
                Brian Clement, Vegetarian Food Fair
                        Yom Kippur,  Ramadan,  Mabon

    Ellie Drew will be here August 29, 30, 31st for a short visit, offering private sessions and 2 lectures.   August 31st, she is speaking on "A Perspective on Forgiveness".   "Interesting" --- that this arose at this point in time, because soon after her talk on Forgiveness are 2 related major holy times from 2 of the major religions.   Then

    September 8-9:  Annual Vegetarian Food Fair, at Harborfront
    September 16th:  Toronto's Annual Beach Celtic Festival:  www.thecelticfestival.com
    September 17th:  Hippocrates Director Brian Clement will be coming here to speak
    September 21 ?  23? :  Autumn Equinox ? Celtic Festival M?an Foghamar (Mabon)
    Ramadan starts September 24 until  October 23
    Rosh Hashanah:  Jewish Year 5767 : sunset September 22, 2006 - nightfall  September 24
    Yom Kippur:  Sundown October 1st to Sundown October 2nd

    YOM KIPPUR:   always falls in our September or October.  It  is the annual day on the Jewish Calendar, the end of the 10 day High Holy Day period which begins New Year.   Jewish New Year is a time for introspection, looking back at the mistakes of the past year and planning the changes to make in the new year.  During this time, one will have examined one's errors towards another person.

    Yom Kippur is the day of  atonement.  Yom Kippur atones only for sins between man and God, not for sins against another person.  [The concept of  "sin" in the Jewish context is dissimilar from the Christian concept.]   To atone for sins against another person, one must first seek reconciliation with that person, righting the wrongs committed against them if possible. That must all be done before Yom Kippur.   On Yom Kippur, the judgment entered in these books is sealed. This day is, essentially, the last appeal, the last chance to change the judgment, to demonstrate repentance and make amends.

    This is a 25 hour period of reflection, repentence, restriction.  As well as fasting.  No liquids even.  No writing, no carrying or using money, no work and other restrictions.

    The time of repentence, atonement.   When we ATONE  we become  AT  ONE because there is no longer a separation between man and God.  And who is the person we must forgive the most?   Of course --- it is Ourself.

    RAMADANFasting is one of the Five Pillars of the religion of Islam and one of the highest forms of Islamic worship. Abstinence from earthly pleasures and curbing evil intentions and desires is regarded as an act of obedience and submission to God as well as an atonement for sins, errors, and mistakes.   Muslims fast during this holy month from the moment when it first starts to get light until sunset.   Muslims fast as an act of faith and worship towards Allah, seeking to suppress their desires and increase their spiritual piety. Fasting together as a worldwide community - Ummah - affirms the brotherhood and equality of man before Allah.

    The Celtic Festival Méan Foghamar (moon FOW-er) Autumn Equinox --- shares reflective aspects, but lacks the heavy solemnity of Yom Kippur and Ramadan.   The harvest  is finished and it is time to relax.  Méan Foghamar reminds us that the fruits of our yearly spiritual growth have been harvested and we await the beginning of our new productive cycle. We should focus inward, examine what we have achieved, and learn from what we have not, using this knowledge to set goals  for the coming year.

    The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honor the Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees.  Méan Foghamar is considered a time of the Mysteries. It is a time to honour Aging Deities and the Spirit World. Considered a time of balance, it is  when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests.

      Why is it that  2  of the world's major religions --- who claim different forms of enmity with one another -- have their major holy days at the same time and their purpose and practices are the same?   One of the other strong similarities is that the dietary restrictions for both are quite similar, e.g., followers can neither eat nor touch pork.

    What is the connection between:   FASTING  and   FORGIVENESS (Reflection, Atonement)?

      Let us examine the  FASTING (DIETARY)  COMPONENT:

    This is one of the 2 times of the year that a major cleanse, e.g., 10 days,  is recommended.  The other time is in the Spring -- during the Spring Equinox.  Because it is during these 2 times of the year that the weather is changing and so do our digestive systems.

    When you fast (cleanse), not only are taking a break from all the physicality, preparation and delight of food, you give your digestive system a break.  Cleansing, properly done,  pulls toxins out of the cells.  Cells, tissues, organs and the entire body becomes cleaner and healthier.   There is more oxygen, a better flow and exchange of nutrients and waste.   The mind becomes MUCH sharper and clearer.

    The colon is the sewer of your body. If it's not cleansed, the waste throughout the body can't get out. According to some estimates, about 70 million Americans suffer from bowel problems.

    Toxemia is the presence of poisons in the blood.  How does poison get into the blood?  Improper food combinations produce rotting fecal debris that dries and adheres to the walls of the colon - thwarting food assimilation and obstructing elimination. The colon soon begins to poison itself. These poisons accumulate in the colon's area of lowest resistance, forming a medium for the growth of viruses, bacteria and/or parasites. When the colon is polluted it robs the body of critical oxygen supply.

    The cause of auto-intoxication is putrefaction within the intestinal tract. Dr. Kellogg (of cereal fame) performed many autopsies during his career, and often found 8 to 25 pounds of dried fecal matter stuck on the walls of  the colon of the average person.

    Have you ever had the problem that even when following a relatively good diet and exercise programme, you still have a little pot belly below the navel?   This is because the transverse colon, which is normally in line with the naval, has prolapsed or dropped a few inches below the naval (middle of the colon is falling down and out). Accumulated fecal matter has forced the colon down and out.  Proper eating, occasional cleansing, colonics and the use of slant boards helps to eliminate this bulge.

    RAW FOODS:   This year, more TD'ers than ever are casually mentioning:  "You know something?  I think I will try eating raw.   It feels like my body wants it."

    HOW I LOST 30 POUNDS IN 4 MONTHS without even trying:  One January about a dozen years ago I decided to eat Fresh 'n Raw.  So, from a standard traditional meat eating diet I switched, literally overnight.   This entailed Vegetarianism, veganism, Fresh n raw, Food combining all at once.  Not smart at all.  Because the body's flora and internal environment  need time to transition.   The hardest to give up was dairy.   I wasn't trying to lose weight, but the weight -- and the midriff bulge, just melted away.   Just as fanatical macrobiotics become macroneurotics, I was cold, tired and hungry much of the time.  I did this for years, then gradually moved to standard vegetarianism, then back to flesh food.  It helped me understand, though how that pot belly grows.  Food combining helps get rid of the pot.

      We are fortunate to have several of our members who are quite knowledgeable in their raw food expertise:

    ERIKA WOLFF:   Having had her own health problems, she healed herself through what she learned and practiced through the Hippocrates Health Institute under the direction of Brian Clement and Viktoras Kulvinskas, and she has since become a Hippocrates Health Educator and teaches people about healthy eating and how to prepare healthy food.  She gives many classes in raw food preparation throughout the GTA.  She is a co-facilitator of weekend and weeklong Living Foods and Fasting Retreats for adults, and the founder of a Living Foods summer camp for children, parents and grandparents.

    Interviews and articles about Erika and her work have appeared in a variety of media, including Breakfast TV, the CBC TV News, Roger’s Joe @ Night, Roger’s Timeline Magazine, Global TV-The Health show, City TV, the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star and the Hippocrates Health Institute Newsletter.

    Erika has conducted retreats, workshops and presentations about the living foods lifestyle at a wide variety of events and venues, such as The Centre for Leadership and Peace, Super Sprouts, Celebrate Women, World Vegetarian Congress, A Feminist Spiritual Conference, New Life Retreat, Living Now Festival Western New York State, Total Health Fair, Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Centre in Michigan, Nuclear Technicians - Sunnybrook Hospital, Sunbeam Corporation, Organic Growers Association, and Consumer Health Organization of Canada.

    You may remember her at our December 2005 social and the fabulous "secret" dips she treated us to.   Erika is sponsoring Brian Clement's visit here in September.  Monday September 18  Erika commences her annual eight part lecture series "The Power Of Raw" at Toronto Sprouts, 720 Bathurst Street.

    [NOTE:   There is another facility --- OPTIMUM INSTITUTE --- they used to call themselves Hippocrates West, with biblically and Essene based dietary and cleansing practices taught at the original Hippocrates of Boston  – a not-for-profit mind-body-spirit healing center.   They have basically the same program as Hippocrates, West Palm, there is an Optimum in Austin, Texas and one in San Diego and their fees are significantly less than the one in Florida.]

    DAVID YEO, from London, would participate in the Raw Food Festival organized by Lorenna Bousquet-Kacera ? Walter  Kacera, D.N. Ph.D. at their Living Center in London.  He also does massage, teaches breathing, and helps people make wise food choices.  David studied with Anne Wigmore who, with Viktoras Kulvinskas, introduced Wheatfrass to the world.  Here is what David says about Anne:

    Re: Anne Wigmore:    "Founder and Inspiration of Hippocrates Live Food Retreat.  I was blessed to meet Dr. Anne in the summers of '87 and '88.    At that time she would come to the Live food retreat in Michigan for a week at a time to do lecrures on Live food. I also was fortunate to have had massaged  her a couple of times during her stay in Michigan.   Some of the things that stand out about Dr. Anne were very interesting and inspiring for me.  Her skin was shiny and soft of a young person.   Her hair  was jet black.   When she had Cancer some 40 years prior she had lost her hair and was grey from the average North American diet and lifestyle.   Dr. Anne slept only 3-4 hours a night!  She had written over 35 books in her lifetime! She was not one to chatter about nothing when she communed  with others.   When she did speak it was direct and profound knowledge we all needed in our lives! I also remember her walking barefoot  first thing in the morning! She loved the Earth!"

    URSULA FUGGER, one of our Astrologers, also does catering --- in the raw food style.

    Fall Change of Seasons means now is the time to take steps to Prevent the Flu with:
    The #1 Flu Preventive --- and Flu Cure --- used in France for over 65 years ---
    Prescribed by Medical Doctors
    A simple, low dosage Homeopathic Remedy
    (this information is provided every fall.)
    The Flu Season is approaching.   4 years ago, Carol Ann Kukulsky was kind enough to share with us the benefits of Oscillococcinum, which is made by Boiron.  They have now merged with. Dolisos, another company that makes fine homeopathic remedies. Oscillo is the #1 Flu Preventive --- and Flu Cure --- used in France for over 65 years, the preventive remedy of choice prescribed by the the vast majority of medical doctors in France and one of the most widely used homeopathic remedies in the world.  (I.e.,  NO vaccinations)

    The way to use it for prevention is:
         >  Take 1 tubule per week for a month, preferably starting in the month of September.  Start today!
         >  Then you take one dose per month until the end of flu season.
    This should be a sufficient flu preventive.  If you forget to do this and if you get the flu, get the product as soon as possible and start taking it as the instructions direct.  If you do get the flu, it is likely it will not be a severe as it could have been.

    "The safest approach is homeopathy, as it is free from side effects, without drug interactions, and safe for both children and adults.  Studies have shown that for those who have not used this remedy prophalactically and experience symptoms that a 63% greater recovery by 48 hours is experienced when it is taken within the first 24 hours of symptom onset. Those not significantly better soon after that should see their health practitioner." Oscillo is made from the liver of a duck.  Because of the nature of homeopathic remedies, a single liver is sufficient for the entire supply of Oscillo for North America.

    "Oscillo works safely with none of the side effects associated with the over-the-counter remedies -- even some herbals.  The primary benefit of Oscillococcinum is that it stimulates the body's own immune mechanisms," says Fabienne Pugnetti-Boiron, public relations manager at Boiron.  "Because of its safety, even pregnant women and children may take it."   "Oscillococcinum is the homeopathic chicken soup."

     PROTEIN --- Like Shiva and Shakti?

    Extensive articles had been included in our newsletters on:  Minerals, Enzymes and other nutrients.  Now here is a view on PROTEIN.

    Herbivores and Carnivores continually dispute the pros and cons of good protein sources.  Carnivores insist one must have flesh food in the diet for adequate protein.  Yet they don't seem to be able to answer the question as to how a gorilla, or a cow, develops all that wonderful protein, and B12.  We've seen what happens when a cow is fed another cow.  It becomes a Mad Cow!

    Protein appears to be the most problematic of all the nutrients and protein problems the least understood.   The top allergenic foods (dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, corn and wheat) are mostly proteins.  Proteins also contribute to leaky gut.   When people start consuming too much protein the extra protein can become a stressful stimulus for the kidney. This is even more of a concern as we get older and our organs are less efficient and effective.   Some high-protein, very-low-carbohydrate, weight-loss diets are designed to induce ketosis. An increase in circulating ketones can disturb the body’s acid-base balance, causing metabolic acidosis.

    We are told we need large amounts of protein, daily.  Some people consume 4-8 ounces of flesh food, more than once daily.  Yet one of our respected members say that the amount of protein needed by an adult on a daily basis, could be found in a single Millionaires sardine!

    Very high levels of dietary protein have also been correlated with increased excretion of calcium in the urine. The loss of calcium through urine could potentially be harmful for bone turnover, with the added risk of osteoporosis.   Liver disease certainly poses a problem as far as how protein and amino acids are handled in the body. The liver is the main organ for breaking down amino acids, so when it is impaired, amino acids levels can build up and become toxic.

    Yet proteins [amino acids] are the components of enzymes.   Of  DNA.   One of my favorite gurus, Frank Ludde, uses large amounts of [predigested] protein for his life saving regimes as proteins are necessary to restore and rebuild.

    THE ANSWER TO THE PROTEIN PROBLEM!?!?  FINALLY FOUND!?!?:::   In Vermont this June, after the ASD Convention, was visiting my very good buddy who lives on my favorite spot on earth.   (Could it be the energy of the huge quartz crystal outcrop in his back 40?   Perhaps.)  One of the things we enjoy is showing each other the books we are currently loving.   The following book, that has the answer and you DEFINITELY DEFINITELY want to check out is:

    "Fantastic Voyage"   by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman
    Page 195:  The Biggest Source of Toxins:  Misformed Proteins
    [See: www.fantastic-voyage.net/for more good info, links, articles, etc.]

    "Misformed proteins are perhaps the most dangerous toxin of all and are formed within your own cells.  Research suggests that misfolded proteins may be at the heart of numerous disease processes in the body.  Such diverse diseases as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, the human form of "mad cow" disease, cystic fibrosis, cataracts, and diabetes all result from the inability of the body to adequately eliminate misformed proteins.

    Protein molecules perform the majority of work done in the cell.  Proteins are made within each cell according to DNA blueprints.  They begin as long strings of amino acids, which must then be folded into precise three dimensional configurations to function as enzymes, transport proteins and so on,  About one third of formed protein molecules are folded improperly.   These disfigured proteins must be immediately destroyed, or they will rapidly accumulate, disrupting cellular functions on many levels.

    As cells age they produce less of the energy needed for optimal functioning [of the break down process into its component amino acids for recycling].  Heavy metal toxins also interfere with normal functions of these enzymes, making the problem worse...."

    If the disposal and recycling process is disrupted, improperly folded protein fragments begin to accumulate within the cell.  The particles are known as protofibrils.  They float around in the fluid portion of the cell and begin to stick together.  They form filaments, fibrils and larger globular structures.  It is now known that it is the small soluble collections of protein fragments, the protofibrils that are the real problem.

    If you are reading this newsletter from Internet:

    A newsletter is published for each Toronto Dowsers meeting.  A hard copy is mailed to each of our members.  Membership dues pay for this newsletter.  Members receive many more benefits and more information than the newsletter. If you live in the GTA, and read these newsletters often, we request that you become a member.  We have members across Canada, in the US and in other countries.  We welcome you to join our group.  Enjoy.  Thank you
    The author goes on to talk about protofibrils turning into insoluble deposits called amyloid and their relationship and the protective nature of amyloids and the damage due to protofibral accumulation.  "Prions, the cause of mad cow disease and its human equivalent, are misfolded proteins, i.e., protofibrils.  Many other serious human maladies, including type 2 diabetes, ALS, Huntington's Disease, are caused by abnormal protein folding."

    The author discusses nutritional supplementation to neutralize this damage.   Just as antioxidants can reduce free radical damage (somewhat parallel to the way certain nutrients can reduce protofibral damage), nutrients that promote the body's energy factory, can prevent protofibril damage.

    I have never seen this protocol recommended for, e.g., leaky gut syndrome, but it could help, now that the cause for IBS  is better understood.  The only treatment for gastrointestinal problems seems to be Elaine Gottschall's program, which is rather difficult to adhere to. I've definitely seen the protocol this book recommends (in fact I developed one myself)  for Parkinson's disease.

    This is an amazing book.  He writes well founded and scientific proof and solutions with regard to Methylation and its importance to your health, causes for heart disease, reversing aging. I had several statements marked down that I wanted to point out to you, but I misplaced my notes.  Fooey!

    Ray Kurzweil himself must be as interesting as what he writes about.  A super cool guy, an AI  guru, he was the principal developer of the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first CCD flat-bed scanner, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition. Successfully founded and developed nine businesses in OCR, music synthesis, speech recognition, reading technology, virtual reality, financial investment, cybernetic art, and other areas of artificial intelligence . Inducted in 2002 into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, established by the U.S. Patent Office.   Received the $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize, the nation's largest award in invention and innovation. He also received the 1999 National Medal of Technology, the nation's highest honor in technology, from President Clinton in a White House ceremony. He has also received scores of other national and international awards, including the 1994 Dickson Prize (Carnegie Mellon University's top science prize), Engineer of the Year from Design News, Inventor of the Year from MIT, and the Grace Murray Hopper Award from the Association for Computing Machinery. He has received twelve honorary Doctorates and honors from three U.S. presidents. He has received seven national and international film awards. Ray's books include The Age of Intelligent Machines, The Age of Spiritual Machines, and Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever. Four of Ray's books have been national best sellers and The Age of Spiritual Machines has been translated into 9 languages and was the #1 best selling book on Amazon in science. Ray Kurzweil's new book, published by Viking Press, is entitled The Singularity is Near, When Humans Transcend Biology.

    You can find an excellent article on many facets on the benefits of a vegetarian protein diet at:  www.healthfree.com/nutritional_power_myth.html#1  Here are excerpted some of their statements that relate to our physical health.  There is a lot more in the article that talks about the effect on the planet, etc.

    While the excerpts, below, from the article mentioned have solid scientific, etc., validity, those who do not share its belief system may offer opposing, yet still considered to be scientific, statements.  (Yes, its the continuing battle between the vegetarians and the meat eaters.)

    The word "protein" is derived from the Greek language and means "of primary importance". Amino Acids, the component parts of protein, are the biochemical basis for life and are required by every cell. The immune system’s antibodies are protein. Endrocine hormones are protein. The cement that holds our cells together is made of protein.

    The strongest animals on Earth are also vegetarians: Elephants, oxen, horses, mules, camels, water buffalo, etc. The Silverback Gorilla is 3-times the size of a man and is 30-times stronger! A Silverback Gorilla is so strong it could throw a 200-pound man across the street like a Frizbee! What does a gorilla eat? Raw fruit and vegetables.

    The Journal of the American Medical Association in 1978 warns athletes (and non-athletes) against taking protein supplements, stating "Athletes need the same amount of protein foods as non-athletes. Protein does not increase strength. Indeed, it often takes greater energy to digest and metabolize the excess protein."

    Dr. Alexander Leaf published the findings of his research about the oldest people in the world in the January, 1973 edition of National Geographic Magazine. He found that the three most consistently disease-free and long-lived people on Earth are the Abkhazians of Russia, the Vilacabambans of Ecuador and the Hunzukuts of Pakistan. None of these peoples suffer from Western diseases: NO obesity, NO cancer, NO heart disease! On the average these people live to be over 100 years old. The men are physically active and still fathering children at 100 years of age.  The diet of all of these people consists of 70-80 percent high-water-content foods such as raw, uncooked fruits and vegetables. These people eat very little or no animal products.

    Meat protein is the most difficult food for the body to digest. The average time for food (other than fruit) to pass through the entire gastrointestinal tract is between 25 and 30 hours. When meat is eaten, that time is more than doubled!

    Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine, in September, 1982 states, "undigested protein must be eliminated by the kidneys. This unnecessary work stresses out the kidneys so much that gradually lesions are developed and tissues begin to harden."

    In the colon, this excess protein waste putrefies into toxic substances, some of which are absorbed in the bloodstream. The University of Illinois Medical School reports that "A high protein diet also breaks down the pancreas and lowers resistance to cancer as well as contributes to the development of diabetes."

    Human mother’s milk contains no more than 5% protein. This is enough protein to enable an infant to double it’s weight and size during the first 6 months of life! After that, the need for protein DECREASES. Independent researchers around the world agree that the human need for protein each day is only 25 - 35 GRAMS. (about 1 ounce). Many nutritionists feel that only 20 grams a day are more than enough. The average American eats more than 100 grams of protean a day - 5 times the actual need!

    Reports in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition say that people do not need to consume more than 2.5% of their daily calorie intake from protein. Even the World Health Organization says people do not need more than 4.5% calories from protein.


    Since our bodies recycle 70% of the protein waste, we lose only about 23 grams of protein a day. To replenish this lost protein, your body needs only about 1.5 pounds of protein a month! So, why do we think we must eat huge amounts of meat to be healthy? Advertising. The meat and dairy industries spend vast sums of money in television and magazine advertising every year to convince Americans that we must eat huge amounts of cow meat, cheese, milk, eggs, chicken and other assorted animal products.

    What’s the truth about meat as a source of protein? The Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council states, "One of the biggest fallacies ever perpetuated is that there is any need for so-called ‘complete protein’."

    Protein is composed of amino acids. Amino acids are literally the building blocks of the human body. There are a total of 23 amino acids needed by the body, of which 15 of these our bodies manufacture in the liver -- provided the liver is in good working order. The other 8 amino acids must come from food so the body can build a complete protein.

    Food must be digested and broken down into amino acids. The liver re-forms the amino acids into useable protein for our bodies. Every one of the amino acids our body requires is found in raw fruits and vegetables!

    Furthermore, when meat is cooked the amino acids in the meat are coagulated or destroyed. Meat releases large amounts of uric acid into our bodies when eaten. Uric acid is toxic to the human body. The human body does not even have the enzyme "uricase" to break down uric acid!

    In order for humans to get any nutritional value from meat it would have to be eaten raw, like the carnivores. However, carnivorous animals, who can live on raw meat, have very little in common with humans.

    In addition, excessive protein consumption is directly responsible for osteoporosis, teeth and gum disease, high cholesterol, acidosis, constipation, kidney infections and weakness, liver disease, water retention, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, allergies, hypertension, weak immune system, etc.

    TOXINS FOUND IN ANIMAL FOODS ARE 100 TIMES MORE CONCENTRATED that those found in fruits and vegetables.  Proteins that putrefy in the colon cause most of the diseases, such as cancer, and other ailments, such as headaches, affecting people today. The toxic burden to the body caused by excessive protein consumption creates the "garbage" which disease viruses and bacteria feed on. Improperly digested protein poisons the lymphatic system, the bloodstream and the vital organs.

    (During our Lecher Antenna workshop, June 3?4, Pierre Noreau, our teacher and an herbalist, often mentioned different health hints.  Here is a listing of most of them.  I wanted to get certain areas more precise however Pierre is very busy with his health practice and I could not get to him to verify a few of the items.  Dowse for accuracy with regard to amounts, etc.  Pierre has agreed to speak to us in the new year on the Lecher Antenna and how we can use it to more precisely pinpoint health issues and solutions.  So hold on to your questions as he has agreed to answer them when he comes to speak to us again!  The review in this issue deals with health hints, not the Lecher teachings, which will come at a later time.)
    Wheat Grass Juice:  One ounce daily will do WONDERS.  Wheat grass is best consumed in the form of juice.  Take a sip, hold it under the tongue, keep it in your mouth as long as you can.   Then swallow. Then repeat until it is finished. This way, it gets absorbed into the sublingual vein.

    NASA:  Spent millions of dollars attempting to develop a pen that would write in zero gravity.  They could not.   The Russians used a pencil!

    Gold,  Silver,  Copper:  Gold eliminates bacteria.  Silver kills.   Copper converts to sulphur, is a cleanser and kills anything "bad" in the intestine. [NOTE:   Gold works more on emotional levels, whereas Silver is purely, and better for, the physical.]

    BEETS:   Winter BLAHS?  Take Vitamin C Daily AND!   A BEET A DAY!   Beets contain the lithium that keeps us happy!  Beets also help counteract fatigue and they help the adrenals.   For those who attend our meetings, you know we meet in the Latvian Center.  I have noticed that at every single meal, BEETS are served.  Is that why Latvians are always smiling?

    FROM INTERNET:  "Studies of peole who leaveve Sicily and go to Rome shows they have more depression and suicide.  There is less water from deep artesian sources,where we will get lithium.

    Also, genes are repaired by methylation, and more needs to be studied on this. SAMe, from beets does this. It is a quick way out of depression, and I think it should be coupled with lithium orotate so peole don't get manic.   Gene repair is important, as depressives can be cured by the hormones of nurturing , or from methylative agents like Beets or SAMe.

    Camphor seems to be another methylative agent. I am not a doctor--but I know it works. Vicks vaporub cures foot nail fungus. I am amazed as I injured a toe and could not get the fungus cured, even with the big thousand dollar costing drugs, over time--and WOW, I now have a normal toe. The Vics cost me $2.39."

    Energy Doors:  If you have an operation, the skin gets sewn up but the "energy door" does not get closed and so energy keeps leaking out.   Ensure that you close the energy door if you have an operation, or, if there is someone close to you who has had one.    We know --- ought to know--- several different ways to do this.

    Cell Salts:  These are approximately 3% of your body.  They act as a switch to turn on vitamins and minerals.

    Fever?  If its mild, put a slice of onion in a sock, put the sock on, in an hour, the slice will be black.   Or, take any kind of alchohol, put a bit on the inside of the elbow, wrists, back of the knees ("perfume" spots).

    To eliminate Arthritis and Gout symptoms:

    1)  Take the juice of:
            3  grapefruits
            3 lemons
            3 oranges
    (2)  Chop up (mince) the skin (rind) of the fruit fine.  You can use a food processor

    (3)  Pour  40 ounces (5 cups) of boiling water over the minced fruit skin

    (4)  Let this sit for 12 hours

    (5)  Strain the liquid from the skins, discard the skins

    (6)  Combine the juice with the fruit skins and add:
          2  Tablespoons (teaspoons?)  Cream of Tartar
          2 ounces salt, as in Sea, Celtic or Himalayan Salt
          Mix everything well

    Keep refrigerated
    Shake before use

    Because of the Special Treat  We Hope to Eat at the Meeting
    (See elsewhere in this issue)  Here is a new:  REPORT ON CHOCOLATE
    Chocolate Improves Baby Boomer Blood Flow  (From Dr. Mercola)

    The flavanols in cocoa could offer significant cardiovascular benefits for men and women over 50.   A new study has determined that drinking a flavanol-rich cocoa drink improved blood vessel function, especially for older study participants.  The study --- yes, partially supported  by Mars, Inc. drank a cocoa drink for 4-6 days and artery function was tracked.

    There was significant improvement in vessel function for all study participants, but the older men and women showed more pronounced improvement. This could be an indication that chocolate may be a very useful dietary approach to improving endothelial functioning among older adults.

    There are numerous studies demonstrating that cocoa flavanols improve blood circulation and reduce the tendency to form damaging clots. However, an editorial accompanying the current study cautioned that not all chocolate contains high quantities of cocoa flavanols.

    They warned that, "The flavanol-rich cocoa products used in experimental studies ... should not be confused with a number of commercially available snacks that contain many calories but are low in natural cocoa and flavanols."

    Dr. Mercola's Comment:
    As you know, I've recently become convinced chocolate -- chock full of polyphenolic bioflavanoids -- can be a powerful health food. A growing number of studies have indicated the health benefits of eating minimally processed dark chocolate.   That said, please be cautious about all the hype being generated about it by candy companies like Mars.

    It's important to keep in mind that you can derive a majority of the benefits of flavanoids by consuming fruits like blueberries, apples and grapes, and most all vegetables, including broccoli, greens and onions. This is obviously a method I would prefer most people utilize. Also remember, as the editorial that accompanied the study wisely warned, not any chocolate will do, as a recent study about alarmingly high lead levels underscored.

     If you eat chocolate, try to eat DARK chocolate. Dark chocolate has antioxidant properties and is far better than milk chocolate, as adding milk cancels out the chocolate's antioxidant effects.   However, even if chocolate is dark, that does not necessarily mean it is healthy; most chocolate, dark or milk, is processed in ways that destroy the majority of the beneficial polyphenolic bioflavanoids.

    Only eat chocolate if you're healthy. Chocolate, even if it is dark, still contains large quantities of sugar, and eating sugar is a profoundly negative influence on your immune system. It should be avoided if you are sick.

    Consume chocolate in moderation. If you are constantly craving sweets, you are likely not eating the correct balance of protein, fats and carbohydrates for your metabolic type. If you tend to crave chocolate when you are upset, bored or lonely, then you could benefit from resolving these underlying emotional issues that are driving you to seek comfort from chocolate.

    Honey the Healer
    3 times during the last 10 years, HONEY has come up as a main ingredient in healing:

    (1)   The Holistic vet, when my cat was failing, told me to make a mixture of:  Honey, bee pollen and Spirulina.  Put it on his gums so he would lick it off.

    I did that.  The cat did not like it -- because the consistency is not appreciable.  But I loved it!  What a GREAT combination (for people).

    (2)   Sandee Mac turned us on to Aajonus Vonderplanitz:  "We Want To Live" and said:   One of the best healing mixtures --- for many conditions, from coma to depression -- and also as a beauty treatment!  is to mix RAW BUTTER and RAW HONEY.  IT IS ESSENTIAL  that these items have NOT been pasteurized and have NOT been heated.   (and consume RAW FOOD as well!!!)

    (3)   Pierre Noreau gives us a mixture for improved memory which includes RAW HONEY (elsewhere in this issue).

     Honey A Better Healer Than Standard Antibiotics
    By Jennifer Harper     The Washington Times    July 29, 2006

    It could be sweet news, indeed. German medical researchers have announced that honey is more effective in healing problem wounds, ulcers and skin conditions than standard antibiotics.

    "In hospitals today we are faced with germs which are resistant to almost all the current antibiotics," said Dr. Arne Simon, an oncologist with the Children's Hospital at the University of Bonn. "As a result, the medical use of honey is becoming attractive again for the treatment of wounds."

    "Even chronic wounds infected with multi-drug resistant bacteria often healed within a few weeks, that the honey method was particularly helpful for young patients with weakened immune systems -- deeming it "astonishing." Honey also made dressings easier to change and even reduced distressing smells associated with some skin conditions."

    Ancient Egyptians, soldiers in the field and assorted healers who have relied on honey over time may not have understood the science behind it all.  During the honey-making process, bees add an enzyme called glucose-oxidase, ultimately generating a mild form of hydrogen peroxide -- an antibacterial agent.

    Summer  2006:  Delicious

    My own summer started before the summer when I was most fortunate to have a 3 hour lunch one June afternoon with Dr. Ibrahim Karim when he stopped over for a couple of days for some business -- that came about thanks to his previous visit to us.   Speaking with him, I am more careful than with others because his replies are so thought provoking one must listen more carefully.    Dr. Karim definitely enjoys our group and the reception we gave him, wants to and plans on working with us more in the not too distant future.  Thanks to him, I look at parts of our world differently now.
    ASD:  The ASD Convention was a much more pleasant experience than the last few years.  Very little politics (for me).   Attendance was down by about 15% from last year and the sales area in the gym was relatively quiet.  Speakers were good and yes some more contacts were made, more on that at a later date.  [As a result of that connection, several in Toronto met Walter Ness (Barbara Allys Brandt's partner) when he was here the end of July and he gave readings.]   We had a sales table with our CDs, DVDs, the Charles Hubbard book ? previous newsletters.  Lots of people came over to say they enjoy reading our newsletters on internet and we picked up 6 new members.

    Sandee Mac's workshop offered new practical material and we hope she will share some of those techniques with us when she returns in October.  Madga Havas was a speaker and very well received.  In addition, as a result of speaking in Toronto, Charles Hubbard gave 2 presentations at the ASD.  The night before their presentations, the speakers introduce themselves and their topic.  We were all howling with laughter listening to Charles.  It appeared as if he'd been doing stand up comedy for years.

    Joey Korn and I went out for dinner one night at a Thai restaurant.  It's great to watch Joey over the years, as his body of work grows and expands and he shares it with us.   One of the other guests was doing the Tong Ren therapy there one night.  We spoke and she told me she'd be very glad to speak with those here who are interested in it.   Extensive Tom Tam's Tong Ren therapy is held in the Boston area.

    Most of the proceeds of our sales items went for books for the library.  In addition, books by:  Joey Korn, Mary Hardy and Ellie Drew were brought back for the sales table.

    There are a lot of other activities at the ASD.  The spa had hands on work and readings of all kinds.  There was a solstice celebration, too.

    Next year, the convention will be at a different time and location.  I think it will be towards the end of July and at the Sugarbush resort area in Warren, Vermont.  This is a better time for school children and their parents, and a better time to be in Vermont.

    SOUTHERN VERMONT INTERLUDE:   Next was a visit to the area I lived in, southern Vermont.  Usually I stay 5-10 days.  This time it was 2 weeks and I did not want to return to Toronto.  The discrepancy between Vermont and Toronto is widening.  Toronto used to appear clean.  No longer.  Since my friend lives on a sparsely populated forested mountain top with very little power lines, I could feel the accumulated electromagnetic, etc.,  stress ooze out day by day.  Thanks to many things, including the recent ceremony with Ivan at the ASD commiting to Gaia, and all the work we've been doing and increased energy, I felt a heightened connection with the land there.

    It rained in New England, practically every day from mid May to mid June.  There were floods in some areas that had never seen floods.   Then July turned out to have long blistering hot spells.   During this spell, parts of Queens, New York (e.g., Flushing), had a 10 day power outage.   This is a very crowded, middle-lower middle class residential area.  There are no areas in Toronto I can compare it to.  It is unimaginable.

    THANK WATER DAY:  July 25th.      I went down to "our spot" at the Lake.   This was during the hot spell, and although hot, it was a gorgeous night.  Last year, the 200 slot parking lot (just east of Sunnyside Pool)  had maybe a dozen cars in it.  This year, probably due to the heat and the sun, I was lucky enough to get a parking spot.  The area abounded with Dragon Boats, strollers, roller bladers, cyclists.   Since I was the only TD'er there, and didn't have to concentrate on leading others, I could go inward more to to concentrate on the Thank Water Prayer, feeling it more deeply, making a more meaningful connection with the Spirit of the Water.

    The end of  July was Mary Hardy's annual Temple of Sakkara Conference.  I developed food poisoning Saturday night and was transformed into a human fountain on Sunday so I can't tell you much about the conference.  It took place during the hot spell and despite the location being right on a lovely lake, the heat was still overpowering.  Mary looks great and sends her regards.  She likes us.

    Between the 2 trips I managed to get some organizing done.   It took 3 days to handle all the backlog of correspondence, from water orders to CD orders to memberships, and other things.  Gathered all the library items in bags and books, under furniture, under other bags and boxes, in corners, etc., that are destined for the library, brought them to the librarian's home while she is out of town to make some room here and to catalogue them.  There are 398.  Even managed to get some other organization done.   Then all that seems to have come to a halt.

    After Mary Hardy's conference, with all the heat, it was difficult to do anything, and spent some time going through one of the 2 useless emotions.  Guilt.  It has been absolutely delightful to --- for a couple of weeks -- do next to nothing, reading mysteries and eating sweet BC cherries and Ontario peaches.  But have been doing a lot of planning, in touch with many and working on Ellie Drew's end of August visit.  Perhaps its been:

    LOSING WEIGHT, REBALANCING, CENTERING:  All my life I'd been a skinny kid. Losing the 30 pounds several years ago was a little scary. So when 3 or 4 years ago I could no longer fit in to my size 8 or 10 clothes and had to start buying size 12 and 14, it was very depressing.  Dad got really ill in 2000 and when I took care of him I'd start to eat the junk he insisted on eating. After he died, and with other additional stresses my previous naturally healthy habits were tanked.

    Hearing that one of you had lost a lot of weight recently, I asked how.  The answer is simple:  cut down on sugars and carbs.  Increase fruits and vegetables.  I was inspired and once again started eating healthfully.  I had developed a Tim Horton's bagel and cream cheese habit.  Now this is seldom rather than often.   I'm eating better and it feels better.  Fresh Fruits, freshly prepared vegetables, some flesh food.  Why do they have to put sugar in Yoghurt?  in some canned vegetables?  peanut butter?  Why does Campbell's have to put MSG and sugar in their products?  This is what's killing people.  When Shelley and I drove to Mary Hardy's it was frightening to see how wide too many people were.

    Making this change was largely a mental process.  Sowing and tending the mental seeds to begin this new habit.  Most successful ventures are due to good preparation.   I was grateful for a more relaxed state of mind so I could spend mental cycles on envisioning and creating better habits for myself.

    Yes, there are a lot of things in the works -- aren't there always?  Please understand if they are not discussed at this time.  I don't like to talk about something until -- unless -- there is a pretty good chance that it will take place.  This is a good practice for you to follow, too.  If you want to know why, ask me.  Maybe one day I'll write about it.  The first time I understood this was in University.  As a French major, had to read a lot of French literature.  My favorite was the Existentialists, especially "Huis Clos" (No Exit)  by Jean Paul Sartre.   MY GOSH!  that play has myriad lessons....  Including this one.  Read it in French or in English.  Its short and well worth it.

    When its not hot -- doesn't the air feel positively delightfully delicious?   I'm outside a lot, just to feel the air on my arms and around me.  This has been a real summer and the air is one of the best parts.  I endeavor to ground in the memory of this feeling to bring it back during, say February.  Sometimes it even works!

    What about your summer?

    RICHARD SYRETT  is a Toronto area Radio Host.   For years he hosted the Richard Syrett show, first on CFRB AM, now on 640 AM.   His weekly format was described as conspiracy and paranormal.  Perhaps he should have called it the way things really are.   The classical movie "Network" was a catalyst for Richard.  August 11th, Richard ceased this format and switched to 5 nights a week.  I hope he gets totally bored with this vanilla mainstream format and brings back some of the truth he said he sought and shared.

    Motivation?  Richard is about to become a father for the first time.  It is more probable that he wants to ensure his kids continue to have a daddy in Toronto not Guantanamo.   After all, look what happened
         June 25, 2006 to:   MIKE RUPPERT
         April  2004 to:  NELSON THALL

    MIKE RUPPERT:    *Investigative Reporter Michael Ruppert has fled the USA as an act of survival.*

    Michael Ruppert, ex CIA?  LAPD?  drug investigator fled the USA permanently, fearing for his life, as a consequence of exposing government corruption, deceit, lies, etc. for several decades.  Being one of the first to finger 9-11 as an "inside job", he is one of the leading investigative reporters, of which we have only a handful who have been courageous and dedicated enough to face the ever-increasing "heat" from government "cleansing tactics".  Is this the fate that awaits the others?

    November 30, 2001, Mike gave a presentation to the University of Oregon.   He presented about 30 exhibits, proving US complicity in 911.  And offered $1,000 to anyone who disproved any of his exhibits.   He has never had to pay up.  Mike came to Toronto the following spring and gave an excellent presentation.   He has continued his efforts in his books, talks and website:  /www.fromthewilderness.com/

    NELSON THALL:   April 2004:  "One night last week, returning home from a Passover Seder, Nelson Thall -- a talk-show host, media analyst and former Torstar Corp. director -- was surprised to find members of the Toronto police force prowling around his Forest Hill home. Then, they arrested him."

    Nelson was mentored by Marshall McLuhan.  His family is one of 5 owners of  Torstar.  Nelson's radio show (past) spoke about coverups.   Now he does this through his internet site: www.cloakanddagger.de/.  I've met him.  He's brilliant, and kind.

    David Icke's version of  The Lady or the Tiger

    "David Icke shared his view that a hidden global elite is seeking to control humanity, and plans a centralization of power and an eventual one world government. This group manipulates the population through various means, he contended. These methods include the bombardment of electromagnetic frequencies (from cell phones, cell towers, HAARP) and substances such as aspartame and fluoride, which act as "excitotoxins," lowering brain cell functioning and vitality.

    To reach their goal of creating a centralized state with a microchipped population connected to a computer, super powers such as the US have to be destroyed, and Icke believes that is now systematically under way. They want to create the conditions for World War III, said Icke-- afterwards they can step in and say that in order to stop this from ever happening again, we need a world government to take over.

    He foresees a "massive fork in the road," for humanity's future.   Within a few short years we could be living in a global fascist state-- "a centralized Orwellian nightmare," or if we start to address this now and not cooperate, we can transform the outcome into something very different."

    New Poll: A Third of U.S. Public Believes 9/11 Conspiracy Theory
    by Thomas Hargrove, Scripps Howard News Service,   Seattle Post-Intelligencer,  August 2, 2006

    Like the 2004 Zogby 9/11 poll, this Scripps Howard survey directly questioned people about their belief in official US complicity, added the Mideast war as a likely motive, and found 36% in agreement. One has to suppress a bitter smile at their finding that agreement was lowest among those who read the mainstream press, but the truly encouraging aspect of this poll was its news that so much of this awakening had occurred quite recently. It also covers WTC demolition and national anger at government. All in all a fascinating read. - Ed.

    More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll.

    The national survey of 1,010 adults also found that anger against the federal government is at record levels, with 54 percent saying they "personally are more angry" at the government than they used to be.   Widespread resentment and alienation toward the national government appears to be fueling a growing acceptance of conspiracy theories about the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon


    ISP:  I use Pathcom.com and have been 99.99% satisfied with them for the last 5 years.   Dial up plans cost from $100-$300 / year.   High speed costs $400 / year.  Installation, support are excellent.   Have been hearing many reports about problems with Rogers ?

    At  new rehab centre, battle against Parkinson's disease takes different tack
    Coping versus curing       Hands-on approach benefits patients immediately
    Jul. 14, 2006.    http://tinyurl.com/kx3dy
    Tim Thaler is hoping a new research and rehabilitation centre at Wilfrid Laurier University will help him find the latest, cutting-edge strategies from around the world to delay the advance of his symptoms, which have already forced him to stop working. The brand new Movement Disorders Research and Rehabilitation Centre is unique in the way that it integrates research with rehabilitation in a hands-on approach that benefits patients immediately.

    Its director is Quincy Almeida, 32, a kinesiologist who graduated with his PhD from the University of Waterloo just two years ago. Already the Wilfrid Laurier University professor has won several awards, including a two-year $90,000 Young Investigator Award from Parkinson Society Canada. Almeida will use it to scientifically evaluate the benefits of exercise for patients in pilot projects he will set up this fall at YMCAs in Oakville, Cambridge and Kitchener-Waterloo with a goal to eventually implementing the program at all the YMCAs in Canada.

    A brain implant allows a paralyzed man to open his email, move a prosthetic hand or adjust a TV set
    The thought-capturing technology offers hope for people with spinal cord injuries,
    Jul. 13, 2006. 01:37 PM   http://tinyurl.com/knhg7    JOSEPH HALL
    In a medical breakthrough worthy of an illusionist's act, a U.S. quadriplegic has been able to move objects around him through the power of thought.  Usng a tiny sensor implanted on his brain, the paralyzed Massachusetts man was able to open email, control a prosthetic hand and adjust the volume on a television just by thinking about doing so, according to a cover article in this week's edition of the journal Nature.

    Researchers say the thought-capturing technology could soon lead to profound improvements in the lives of people with spinal cord injuries — even to the point where arms and legs could be made to move at will.

    "We've found that merely imagining action is sufficient to cause a particular activity," says John Donoghue, a neuroscientist at Rhode Island's Brown University.   "We're reading the neural activity related to that imagined action ... and using it to control devices."

    Known as BrainGate, the technology includes an electrode array, about the size of a baby Aspirin, that's implanted on the surface of the brain's motor cortex. Located directly beneath the top of the skull, the motor cortex controls voluntary limb and body movements.

    Brain impulses detected by the BrainGate array are sent up via a set of fine wires that pierce the skull and scalp. These are attached by cable to a computerized system that can amplify these neurological impulses or "spikes" and translate them, in real time, into the desired actions.

    "Brain cells have a language called spikes, which are basically impulses,  ...  The change in the number of those impulses over time is really the way the brain carries around information from one spot to another."  [SNIP]

    Fortune telling is a class B misdemeanor.
    Reading  "Dead Even", by Brad Meltzer...  He wrote:   "In New York, if you pretend to use occult powers to exorcise or affect evil spirits, you can be charged with fortune telling."   "You can do it for the purpose of entertainment or amusement."   So I checked it out. Yuperoonie!

    Fortune telling for money (rather than purely for “entertainment”) runs contrary to section 165.35 of the New York State Penal Code. But except in truly spectacular “curse” cases (and other alleged Rom specialties such as slip-and-fall insurance fakery, odometer rejiggering, and the emptying of lonely elderly men’s bank accounts—known as a “sweetheart swindle” or “cruising for willies”), few arrests are made.

    From the statutes:   Section 165.35 Fortune states:
    A person is guilty of fortune telling when, for a fee or compensation which he directly or indirectly solicits or receives, he claims or pretends to tell fortunes, or holds himself out as being able, by claimed or pretended use of occult powers, to answer questions or give advice on personal matters or to exorcise, influence or affect evil spirits or curses;  except that this section does not apply to a person who engages in the aforedescribed conduct as part of a show or exhibition solely for the purpose of entertainment or amusement.

    Tinnitus Problem?  Or are you hearing Microwave Transmission
    " I have often wondered about the tinnitus problem that I developed when first effected by electro magnetic radiation.   Today I saw the term - "microwave hearing" and have started searching for more information.  I now believe that I am probably hearing microwave transmissions.   The link below explains about microwave hearing and even mentions why some people see the colour blue when exposed to radiation.  This may help some victims to understand their symptoms better."   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_auditory_effect

    The microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect, consists of audible clicks induced by pulsed/modulated microwave frequencies that are generated directly inside the human head without the need of any receiving electronic device. The effect was first reported by persons working in the vicinity of radar transponders during World War II. These induced sounds are not audible to other nearby people. The microwave auditory effect was later discovered to be inducible with shorter-wavelength portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. During the Cold War era, the American neuroscientist Allan H. Frey studied this phenomenon and was the first to publish (1961) information on the nature of the microwave auditory effect; this effect is therefore also known as the Frey effect.

    Research by NASA in the 1970s showed that this effect occurs as a result of thermal expansion of parts of the human ear around the cochlea, even at low power density. Later, signal modulation was found to produce sounds or words that appeared to originate intracranially. It was studied for its possible use in communications but has not been developed due to the possible hazardous biological effects of microwave radiation. Similar research conducted in the USSR studied its use in non-lethal weaponry.

    Some conspiracy theorists have supposed that this effect is used for mind control. They claim patent U.S. Patent 3,951,134 (Malech; April 20, 1976) is for this purpose.

    Orthomolecular Medicine  ...  GREAT site:     orthomolecular.org
    is healing done with nutritional supplements, founded by Dr. Abram Hoffer.  Dr. Hoffer, a Canadian,  was interviewed on Toronto radio August 2006!

    Fabulous link on comprehensive Nutritional charts --- not just the nutrients in a food, but the amount of that nutrient!  orthomolecular.org/nutrients/nc/index.shtml

    NutriCircles® were developed at the University of Texas, Austin by Donald R. Davis in collaboration with Roger J. Williams for his book, The Wonderful World Within You (1977, 2004). They show the nutritional quality of foods in a diagram that is far easier to grasp than a long list of numbers.  These graphical illustrations demonstrate how Nature helps us get the nutrients we need, if we cooperate with her in our food choices. Similarly, they help us understand the value of limiting certain man-made foods that unfortunately dominate most Western diets.   NutriCircles® are bar graphs bent into a circle so that the bars are like the petals on a flower. Each bar represents one nutrient in a food, and its length shows the amount of that nutrient. The amounts are expressed in amounts per calorie (known as nutrient density). This method shows the basic quality of a food, which does not depend on serving size.

    Additional comments as a result of Dr. Ibrahim Karim's teaching:

    (1)  At our June 2006 meeting, Marta Kuze brought in some lovely roses and gardenias.  Marta's husband takes care of many of the flowers and plants around the Latvian Center.   I took the flowers home that night and as my flower vases are narrow, I put them in 2 (identical) vases.   One of the vases was put on the (small) silver plated charging plate developed by Dr. Karim.   The other vase was placed on the table about 10" from the first vase.
    The next morning:  Stunned.   The vase on the charging plate --- the leaves were bright green, very alive, very healthy.  The blooms were very healthy.  The other vase, the leaves and flowers were about 30% as vibrant looking as those in the vase on the charging plate.  When not in use for something specific, I keep my supplements on this plate.

    (2)  In our May 2006 issue, there was a comment about Grave Dowsing.   This is what was written:   "When you grave dowse, do not do this for long periods of time, AND cleanse yourself of non beneficial energies immediately after.  Because you resonate with what you are dowsing.   You make an energy connection with whatever you choose to place your attention on.   Choosing to Resonate with death is not exactly a great idea, especially if you don't have a need to do so.

    Dr. Karim tells us:  "When you measure something, there is an information exchange.  It transforms you, you transform it.  Everything is constantly transforming everything else.  When you measure something, as a dowser, all the problems in your energy system -- you are transmitting it --- and vice versa." "

    It was suggested that if you are dowsing detrimental energies, that you don't do this for more than 20 minutes at a time.

    He also added:   "The more you dowse for BG3, the more you come into resonance with it;  the better you will be able to be at recognizing it."  So the more time you spend around BG3, or beneficial, energies, the better you become at recognizing it and the more it become a part of your own energy system and YOU!

    (3) Here's a very useful, extremely simple and important way to neutralize detrimental electrical energies around your electrical appliances:

    Did you use the information in the June 2006 newsletter from Dr. Karim's teachings?  The story about what happened when a photo of grandchildren was on a Benker Grid Line, what their behavior was like and  what happened after the energy was shifted?  That you might want to check to see if photos of loved ones were on walls, desks, etc., that are over noxious energy lines?   And if so, to neutralize the noxious energy in that location, or, move the picture.  And watch the behavior change.

    THE   Tuesday, September 12th,  2006  MEETING FEATURES::

    Ivan McBeth
    will speak on:
    "2012: Gateway Into a New Awareness"

    Druid, Stone Circle Builder, Geomancer, Shaman, Author, Speaker

    Haven't you been wondering about what is supposed to take place
    Winter Solstice 2012?

    Is the world supposed to end?  Can we do anything on a personal, or universal level?

    Ivan shall share with us from his wisdom, knowledge, experience
    what is to happen for 2012.

    What it means
    How we can individually and collectively best prepare for it.

    Ivan has been journeying steadily since 1987, from the Sinai Desert to the Himalayas, to... Vermont!   and has gathered, assimilated and understood the traditions from the Mayans, Hopis, Hindus and others, so he can come here to offer us this guidance as we prepare to enter into and create the next Golden Age.

    Listen to what he has to say, then join in as he takes us through the portal of committed intention.

    We have also arranged for a representative of a sought after aspect of Mayan culture to join us at the end of the evening --- if his shipment arrives.

    See inside the newsletter, or on our MEETING page for more information on Ivan's work, and the Mayan offering.
