Sandee Mac showed us how through using the spiral and the pendulum, the DNA spiral corrects or repairs a person's DNA. One dowses to determine if a client's DNA should be repaired or corrected and which areas should be worked on. Then she places DNA Spiral over the client's body (roughly as high as she can lift her hand) and slowly moves DNA from above to almost the body - back and forth (up and down) a few times - it was said that 2-3 times is enough, whoever she always consult pendulum how many turns she should do. Then she asks if the work has been done and finished and if there is something else she supposed to do for this person at that time. In most cases there is nothing else to do at the moment.
DNA SPIRAL OF LIFE This is a Copper spiral plated with 24K gold. It promotes an ongoing exchange and supply of energy in one's environment and can be placed in a central spot of the house to force the circulation of energy (even through the walls) and to harmonize its flow in empty, big halls, living rooms, stairways, basements, guests rooms etc. – every place where energy seems to be stagnant (“dead energy”) in order to create a healthy flow of energy for a whole area or in a Feng Shui corner.
By creating a kind of “energetic cylinder” the DNA Spiral minimizes or, in many cases, cuts off detrimental influences of black streams, ley lines, EMFs or any other noxious energies. It also strengthens the human energetic system, so we are less vulnerrable to these negative vibrations.
Due to is ability to energize the DNA Spiral has a positive influence to:
- Activate one's own DNA strand
- Helps speed up the healing process
- Enhances the process of clearing energy in a room (i.e. after conflicts, arguments etc.)
- Its own clearing ability prevents the environment from getting over-energized.

EIDETIC SOLUTIONS FOR LIVING, LEARNING, EARNING AND HEALTH
See the Eidetics Academy at: www.eidetics.ca/
In the 1920's, Dr. E. Jaensch, published his conclusions about what is known as eidetic imagery. Continuing this research in the 1970's, Henry Evering and Dr. Robert James investigated with 200 patients the effects of eidetic biofeedback, and psychological synthesis. This process reduced stress in patients, improved their muscle and temperature control, and boosted their immune systems.
We would like to exhibit a dodecahedron earth globe to demonstrate the cosmological aspects of Eidetics, various smaller colored geometry figures, biofeedback instruments, synergy kits and seminars will be available for sale. Biofeedback involves invoking mind-body processes so as to self-modify certain functions towards better health and more creativity.
These tools are often better than being clairvoyant and were perfected through interviews with over 15,000 people. Besides personal development Eidetics discoveries are applied in education and business.
According to ancient wholeness systems such as the Cabala, the Mayan Philosophy and the I-Ching the template is the same at each level for matter, people, nature, light, the cosmos, DNA, organizations and the marketplace. The key to wellness and evolution is insight, information and feedback, translated into actions.

|As I can not take care of the table this evening, because I need to "run the show", please get more information -- or product -- from me through the Toronto Dowsers table, or through Mary Anne Robertson. Mary Anne is another distributor of this product, can explain additional benefits to you and it is your choice if you would like to continue with, should you be interested.|
This product is an extract from algae, a whole food and the source of all life. StemEnhance is a natural botanical extract. It is the very first product on the market from a category called “stem cell enhancers”.
When you take two capsules, the ingredients help to support the release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. Those stem cells then travel to areas of the body where they are most needed.
Adult stem cells are most abundantly found in bone marrow. Stem cells circulate and function to replace dysfunctional cells. StemEnhance supports the release of adult stem cells from bone marrow into circulation.
StemEnhance™ is a blend of two compounds extracted from algae. One extract, supports the release of stem cells from the bone marrow. The other extract, may support the migration of stem cells out of the blood into tissues.
Stephanie and Glen will offer you:
- Earth Eagle Products including their liquid Smudge and their wonderful high desert Sage
- Aroma Crystal Therapy's Gardener's Dream Cream
- Strauss Herb's Heart Drops

- Drop off the book --- Maximum: 6 per person

We are going to do some Manifestation Tuesday night, using what we learned from Sandee Mac and Ellie Drew. So please bring along with you --- either in your thoughts or written down:
o One or two or more
items you would like to manifest, personally
o One or two or more items you would like to see in existence for the world around you.

ONE OR TWO OR MORE THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO MANIFEST, PERSONALLY
ONE OR TWO OR MORE THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN FOR THE WORLD AROUND YOU
BOWLS! SINGING BOWLS! BON SINGING BOWLS!
A "funny" thing happened about our Manifesting concept --- remember Puck? Puck and Phillip Bowman were the greatest help to us during our first 3 years. Puck moved into Toronto and working with the owner of Nepal Handicrafts, is organizing the Toronto Singing Bowl Circle -- whose members are, naturally, Toronto Dowsers!
Puck, Jesse, Vern and their families of 31 singing bowls have been invited to accompany our evening and will be creating whatever harmony the bowls decide will be appropriate for the evening.
Puck tells me the Bön Singing Bowls predate the Tibetans by a few thousand years. There are 9 principles of enlightenment within the Bön way of being and that the 7th is Sound. These bowls range from 2 1/2" in diameter to bowls you need to walk around.
When I asked him what is their purpose
Puck replied: These bowls offer a facilitation towards manifestation. !!!
See the bottom of this page for an Appendix containing all sorts of info on the
Bön Singing Bowls
The FOOD TABLE is set up the entire evening. We usually have 3 or 4 FOOD TABLES LOADED with lovely treats. PLEASE DO BRING the finger food munchies you would like to share with us.
Because we have a lot of smart, creative, educated, multi faceted and capable people in many areas, many have their own businesses, products and services.
You need the chance --- the stage --- to strut your stuff --- so we know more of who you are, what you do.
The Toronto Dowsers Annual Networking Social is the opportunity that has been created for you to let others know more about you, what you like, what you teach, what you offer, what you make, what you sell. And the opportunity for others to find out more about you.
Paid up members in good standing are eligible for a table at this event.
Your table could offer products for sale that you represent or that you create. It could have material for a school you own. You could have a table because you want to tell people about your new uncovery or your reflexology or radionics practice or do henna tatoos or palm readings or offer samples of your kombucha tea or you make and sell teas, shampoos, essential oils, pottery, etc. etc. etc. It's you sharing that part of yourself you want to share with the rest of us.
You also bring food. You don't have to do that, but you want to --- because we have LOTS of really delicious food at this event. We have munchies --- contributed by you as usual --- more than just after the meeting --- its ... all....night....long.... So BRING IT ON DOWNNNN!
This is the night, truth be it known, that Toronto Dowsers do what we do best: Talk Eat & Shop.
Every year we hear how you have met people you have not seen in years.
And no, this is not a religious event. Its a time of year people like to be social, many of you may not necessarily attend a Chanukah party and I did tell my rabbi that I have no interest in organizing a christmas party.
Fr events like this one, although you may not *think* you are interested in attending for any of the obvious reasons, it is most important to go --- to meet someone who will be important to you. You might find out that for you: "It's not what I do, its who I do it with."
Ensure you bring an appetite, your joie de vivre, business cards and money to buy stuff. Support your local Toronto Dowser.
Or, do come on down, December 12th. Bring a good friend. Show your friend Your group, the group you are part of and has changed because your energy is now part of the chemistry of the group.
HAVE A GREAT TIME!
MAKE AN EXCELLENT NIGHT!
MAKE AT LEAST ONE NEW FRIEND!
LEARN AT LEAST ONE THING THAT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU!
BE THE DIFFERENCE FOR AN EXCELLENT NIGHT FOR ANOTHER PERSON!
SEE YOU REAL SOON!
SOME NEAT EXTRA INFO ON THE BOWLS
Used in Meditation, these unique instruments can cause the listener to experience different mood changes depending on the Master playing them. The actual name is called BON and this means container. Indeed it is also used as a vessel for eating and drinking.
Long hidden from most of the world, we now know these particular sound making bowls have existed for at least 4000 years. Evidence is found in the excavation (1938) of an old Bon temple dated at 2400 BC, in which two Singing Bowls were discovered. A spiritual advisor of the Dalai Lama traced the singing bowls back to a primitive and animistic sect related to the indigenous people of Nepal that was dedicated to fire worship. From there the bowls were carried across the silk route, and found their way into Tibet. The true origin of singing bowls remains uncertain, but use by the Bonpo practitioners of the Bon religion clearly implies ancient links.
The Lamas who used the bowls were masters of sound. They used them in secret and kept them exclusively for themselves; never mentioning the rituals or the bowls. In shamanic circles all knowledge about the power of sound, including the light beings painted by Joska Soos, has been carefully kept secret. Initiation in sound is the highest level of initiation; sound is such a powerful force. In religious and shamanic practices the use of sound is ancient and primal. All world traditions express the most fundamental energy underlying the manifestation of the universe in terms of sound. In the physical world humans participate in the expression of this fundamental energy with the use of their voice and musical instruments. Singing bowls have survived thousands of years as shamanic instruments, affirming their effectiveness in shamanic work.
Singing bowls are not just musical, sound producing objects. Sacred shamanic instruments, they have been crafted to effectively bring a hypnotic state of consciousness, a trance which opens the door to the inner world quickly and swiftly. At the same time they help restructure disharmonies on the non-physical causal level, promoting healing on the physical plane.
There are still many Bon-po (adherents of Bon), especially in the east of Tibet. Bon is usually considered as the ensemble of pre-Buddhist beliefs of the Tibetans and it embodies a vast mass of ritual practices bearing on exorcism, divination and the appeasement of wrathful divinities as well as elaborate teachings guiding the individual to full spiritual realisation. That places Bon among the great mystico-philosophical systems of the world, despite the relatively small number of its adherents.
Tonpa Shenrab, the Completely Enlightened One
Tonpa Shenrab, the founder of the Yung Drung Bön religion, was born in 16,017 BC, in the land of Omolungring. Tonpa Shenrab appeared initially as an ordinary man. Before he attained enlightenment (Buddhahood), he went through the six realms of cyclic existence in countless births. He entered the door of enlightenment through the practices of accumulating merit and purifying himself, resulting in the attainment of the transcendental qualities of loving kindness and compassion. He is superior among all the exalted enlightened beings and is dedicated to the liberation of all sentient beings. In order to rescue them, he turned the Dharma Wheel of Bön three times as an antidote to all suffering.
According to tradition, bowls are made from
seven metals: one metal for each planet.
Gold – sun
Silver – moon
Mercury – Mercury
Copper – Venus
Iron – Mars
Tin – Jupiter
Lead – Saturn
These metals combined produce an individual sound as each bowl is hand made. The harmonies of all the metals produce subtle distinctions creating a sensation of great space and profound peace. May the sound of this bowl bring you good health and long life.
