Publisher's Message ~ October 2012 Issue

Welcome to our October OK In Health Network & eMagazine.

This is the month of thanks and giving. This is a good time for us to thank YOU for your support and loyalty throughout the year. We really do appreciate you. Our mission is to ethically assist you on your journey to better health.  One of the ways we like to do this is by inviting the experts to the Okanagan so they can share their stories and secrets. 
See below for our upcoming events...


This month we shine the spotlight on ‘Channelling & the 12th Dimension’. We explore what it is, and what different types of channelling there are. We chose this topic because we have invited Allison Scott to our community from
South Africa in October. She will spend two weeks here in Canada and two weeks in Tacoma. She teaches a two day workshop called "Conscious Channeling".  Allison explains: When we do healing work, we channel healing energy from the Divine Source to balance and repair illness in the body. The type of channelling that is the topic here is channelling information from another spirit. To read more…. Click here.
We always aim at being educational in our eMagazine, so we invite you to read more of what Allison has to say with open minded curiosity, and we invite you to visit our website for more detailed information about her Friday 19th - Free information night and two day workshop coming to Penticton Oct. 20 -21 and Vancouver Island Oct 27 -28. Allison is also available for private readings.

In September we were at the Woman's Fair in Penticton and the Wise Woman's festival. Both events has a great turn out. We will be at the Kelowna Wellness Fair on October 13 and 14th. We had a fun time last year. We are looking for some volunteers to join us at our booth #13. If you could spare some time to help support this community wellness network and like to meet people, please contact us by email. We also invite you to drop by and say hello to us.

For the last 20 years people have said they wished they were coming with me when I go home to Ireland or they have always wanted to go to Ireland. So as Ireland is hosting 'The Gathering' in 2013, I thought, NOW is the time. My family, my friends, Cindy and I have an amazing tour planned for our small group.We have some wonderful people joining us.  The excitement has nearly become unbearable for us here at OK In Health as we prepare for the  14 day Celtic Angel Tour to Ireland in March with Irish guide Maria Carr and Angel guide Cindy Smith. Everyone is so looking forward to this tour. We are also offering stop-over mini tours to London or Paris. We will be in Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day, see so much of Ireland, ancient sacred stone circles (2nd century BC), dolmens, fairy forts, and also be taking the Angel Empowerment practitioner’s course with Cindy Smith during the Tour. This is a small group tour so it is limited. We have only 6 places left. Email your host Maria Carr for full details. We hope you will join us for the trip of a lifetime. 
We asked Cindy Smith to talk more about the Celtic Angel Tour, the AEP course and about our Angels – Click Here

Dandelion and Tomato Salad

Description:
Pity the American dandelion. In countries across the world the dandelion is considered a delicious vegetable and is consumed with affection–and dandelion has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. In America, it is most often cursed as an irksome weed and is pulled, poisoned and otherwise generally maligned. Dandelion gets its name from the French "dents de lion", or lion's teeth, which describes the jagged edges on the leaves. The "lion" part might be there due to the fact that the fluffy yellow flowers of the plant resemble a lion's furry mane. Dandelion greens are loaded with beta carotene, the carotenoid phytonutrient that is a precursor to vitamin A. Dandelions help to support digestion. Known to reduce swelling and inflammation. Traditionally used as an anti-viral, treatment for gout, eczema, jaundice, and edema. Function as both mild laxative and gentle diuretic properties to purify the blood and cleanse the system. Dandelion greens have a reputation for bitterness, but they are nicely so, and the bitterness is balanced by a lovely spiciness similar to arugula. Mature greens can get pretty bitter, but this can be tamed by blanching them. The time to harvest dandelion greens is early in the spring, when they are their youngest and before they flower. They can be harvested again in late fall as they loose some of their bitterness after a frost. Look for young dandelions growing in rich, moist soil, making sure not to forage close to roads. They taste fresh and easy to add to any salad! This recipes is so simple to make.


Herbed & Parmesan Asparagus Fries

Description:
Asparagus: This member of the lily family is one of the most nutritionally dense vegetable in existence. I mere five-ounce serving provides 60% of the recommended daily allowance of folate, which is necessary for blood cell formation, liver health and pregnant woman. The health benefits of Asparagus are Vitamin B9 (folate), Potassium, Vitamin C, A B6 and B1. It also contains amino acids and works as a natural diuretic. If you have picky eaters in your home? What about turning these amazing super veggies into healthy fries...they may never know how good they are for them!


Dark Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Description:
Dark chocolate the bitter sweet treat! It's more than wishful thinking - chocolate can be good for you. Studies show that eating chocolate, primarily dark chocolate, may contribute to improved cardiovascular health. Packed with natural antioxidants, dark chocolate and cocoa sit in the same good-for-you category as green tea and blueberries. That's because chocolate comes from cacao beans (or cocoa beans), which grow on the cacao tree and are full of natural plant nutrients. Most of the studies to date highlight dark chocolate's health values because it has the highest percentage of cocoa solids, therefore more antioxidants. *Health Fact! 40g of cocoa powder a day for 4 weeks has been proven to increase HDL (good) cholesterol by 5% while decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol by 14%! As a part of the summer squash family, zucchini not only offers delightful taste and texture to many dishes, but also carries with it many health bene?ts.

QUESTION:
Are there different forms of Channelling and what is the 12th Dimension?

ANSWER:
Channelling can be defined as the act of an individual allowing a spiritual being to communicate through them to those on the physical plane. The spiritual being can be an angel, archangel, ascended master, guide or deceased loved one. Yes, there are there different forms of Channelling?

AUTOMATIC WRITING: This is like taking dictation from a spiritual being, where the hands are used to write or type information that is coming through.
TRANCE-VOICE CHANNELLING: this is where an individual is in a semi-trance state.
Deep trance Channelling: this is where an individual’s body is used by a spiritual being where the individual falls into a “deep sleep” and remembers nothing upon “awakening”. Eg. Edgar Cayce, who was known as the “Sleeping Prophet”.
CONSCIOUS CHANNELLING: this is where an individual is “awake” while bringing the information psychically from a spiritual being.

ALLISON SCOTT'S CONSCIOUS CHANNELLING is a technique different to any of the above forms of channelling. You can learn how to do this form of channelling in a 2-day workshop in Penticton on October 20th.
You will learn a step-by-step technique to connect with your 12th dimensional body. Once learnt you cannot unlearn it, like riding a bicycle. You would never be able to meditate to reach the 12th Dimension. That would be like saying if you jump long and hard enough you would be able to reach the level where an aeroplane can fly - that is just not humanly possible. Because of this connection you have no limitation to the level of spiritual being that you can connect with, as there are no negative effects to the body when working at this level of awareness. At this 12D level all the spiritual beings come from a place of: no judgement, Unconditional Love and will not interfere with your free choice. There are no malevolent beings at this level, so there is also no chance of “possession”. Through this technique one is not getting the information psychically which means you do not need to be psychic to do this form of channelling. However, this connection enhances one’s psychic abilities – some people open up to their psychic abilities after doing this workshop because it removes the fears related to psychic stuff.
When doing this form of Conscious Channelling nothing changes in the way you look or speak and so one is able to get messages of Love and Wisdom to people who would not even be aware that you are channelling. This connection creates coherence in you, in your life AND in your environment. http://okinhealth.com/events/details.aspx?EventID=1143

Articles
“Chucking the Whole Onion” by Allison Scott
We are first and foremost energetic beings then physical beings ie. we have an energy field surrounding our physical bodies (which can be measured by science) which responds to stimuli in our environment before our physical senses do. This energy field registers what is happening in your environment and then feeds the information to your body which then reacts. We interact with our environment through our energy field. Every experience we have ever had has the memory of that experience registered in our DNA and cellular memory. How can we release the negative emotional charge from these memories?
Aramu Muru, Peru - Magic on the Altiplano by Agnes Toews Andrews
A quick flash of insight prompted me to grab a plane ticket to Lima, Peru at the spur of the moment. I had always desired to go to Peru, knowing I have a spiritual home there to be discovered, uncovered and analyzed. How a spontaneous Lake Titicaca purification and a Peruvian tenth dimensional doorway awakened new power and peace within me! What will my insights be?...
Asking the Angels into Your Dreams by Doreen Virtue
Our dreamtime is often the most productive time to gain new spiritual growth and understanding. Many people have psychic dreams that foretell the future, or that give guidance about career, home, and family. You can receive consistent and clear guidance while you sleep by inviting angels into your dreams. This is an especially good way to gain new understandings and creative ideas when your daytime thinking mode is locked into black-and-white viewpoints. While sleeping, we let go of.....
Bitting up by Ann Turner
QUESTION TO ANN: My horse is running at fences, hard to stop and collect after a jump, would bitting up help this problem? Langley, BC. ANSWER FROM ANN: There seem to be a lot of people not just in the jumping world that have this problem. Many dressage riders too have problems with transitions, especially the downward transitions, and getting collection without having to hold the horse all the time....
Choosing a Non-Toxic Cookware by Lindsay Coulter
Sure, there are other 'green' pans on the market, but for me cast iron wins because I can use it to scramble eggs, fry pancakes, sustainable fish, or beans, sauté Swiss chard, or even bake crème caramel! And it's super low-maintenance. Learn how to season and clean a cast iron pan...
Coconut Oil: The Real Truth by Klaus Ferlow
In our society coconut oil has been given a bad name and many are under the impression that this oil contains unhealthy saturated fats and therefore creates clogged arteries and heart problems. This misperception is likely due to a negative campaign against saturated fats and tropical oils that encouraged manufacturers to favour cash crops like soy as opposed to coconut oil.
Detoxification by Dr. Tamara Browne
Since it appears as though everyone carries a toxic load, and toxins contribute to degenerative and autoimmune diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis, it is logical to follow steps to detoxify on an ongoing bases. If you suffer from fatigue, chronic pain, brain fog, or chronic illness…detoxification may help you return to optimal health. Following are guidelines which will help you to remain free from toxins, thus enabling your body to remain in balance and free from disease....
Do You Block Healing for Yourself? by Cindy Smith
Dear Angel Friends, I posed the question to Archangel Raphael around healing for you because there seems to be some confusion on how we can heal ourselves. Yes, there are many lightworkers in our world that can assist with amazing healing energy and I am blessed to have met so many of them. I do want to remind you that you have the most powerful gift of healing at your own fingertips-your Angelic Team. Yes, we may not all know practiced techniques of healing but your basic gift of healing is ASKING your team for assistance. What I have witnessed...
EFA's and Evening Primrose Oil by Miscellaneous
Essential Fatty Acids, or "EFAs", are essential nutrients that the body is not able to produce itself. These nutrients must be obtained through diet. EFAs are polyunsaturated fats, which are considered "good" fats. EFAs contribute to the healthy functioning of cell membranes, and are also critical for the synthesis of eicosanoids, a family of hormone-like substances that help in continual cell maintenance. There are two families of EFAs, both of which the body needs equally. The first is...
Environmental school has lessons for all by David Suzuki
The kids are back in school. But for 60 students in Maple Ridge, B.C., school doesn’t mean a stuffy classroom. According to an article in the Vancouver Sun, the children, ranging in age from four to 12, will get their lessons “in parks, at picnic tables, alongside streams, under tarps and tents, in gardens, libraries, restaurants, fitness centres and even municipal council chambers.”...
Five Reason for Refusing the Smart Meter on Your Home by Environment Care Articles
They’re here…. Corix is in town going block to block and door to door replacing our perfectly good old-fashioned hydro meters with Smart Meters. Have you boxed in your hydro meter so that it cannot be replaced without your consent? And have you posted your sign beside it saying ‘No Smart Meter’ at your address?
Glorious Garlic by Charlotte Ruechel
Plant first or second week of October, and in April you will tiptoe into your garden with a worried look on your face: did the garlic come up? Yep. It did. Finding local garlic in the Okanagan is not difficult; we are lucky to have great Farmer’s Markets all around us offering a rich assortment of garlic varieties, some more pungent than others. But it is also a lot of fun to grow your own.
Healing the Emotional Heart by Caroline Sutherland
Everyone has wounds. We wouldn’t be human without them. I believe that illness is the manifestation of unresolved emotional wounds. Therefore, healing the emotional heart is where the deepest level of personal self mastery resides. You can climb the mountain of your own spiritual journey if you can forgive. Here’s my own forgiveness story. Maybe you’re like me. Perhaps you perceive that you have had a difficult...
Healthy Herbal Hints by David Dixon
Herbs have been around, helping us since, even before my time. Here are a few tips about plants and some of the benefits one can expect from them.
Keeping Dessert in Your Gluten Free Diet by Cathy Lauer
For so many people dessert is what they look forward to at the end of a meal. For some, the meal would not be complete without it. It need not be big or fancy; it just has to be a comforting sweetness at the end of a meal. Whatever your comfort dessert is, being gluten free does not mean you have to give it up...
Keeping Your Cool in the Heat of the Moment by Maggie Reigh
Children and teens are experts at pressing their parents’ buttons. And if you’re like most parents, including myself, you probably “lose it” on occasion.
Obesity in Pets – Part Two by Dr. Moira Drosdovech
From Part I of Obesity in pets, we’ll remember that overfeeding is the most common reason for obesity in animals and is an easy thing to do when you feed grain-based dry foods which are high in carbohydrates. More and more, there are dry foods becoming available that contain no grain and use a starch source such as potato instead. These may potentially be a better choice for “Chunky Charlie”. For example,
Our Interesting Journey by Carole Fawcett
The journey to get to where we want to be can be frought with challenge so enormous that it may seem to be almost impossible. We sometimes really believe that we will not achieve what we hope to achieve. That thought has the power to stop us in our tracks. Everything begins in the mind and our thoughts have incredible power...
Put A Little Culture Back Into Your Life with Raw Fermented Sauerkraut by Sandra Butler

The fermenting process of foods makes them extremely rich in life-force enzymes and friendly bacteria called probiotics that aid the digestive process within the body. Here are some easy instructions for making your own homemade sauerkraut...
Smashing Pumpkins for Supper by Alexis Costello
It always strikes me as funny that people tend to think about pumpkins as a decoration rather then as a food. Especially as they are very healthy and delicious!

Water: Is the glass half empty or half full? by David Suzuki
We can’t live without water. We need it to stay hydrated and grow food. We use it to generate electricity. Water is in us and all around us. It makes up about 65 per cent of our bodies. Thanks to the hydrologic cycle, it circulates constantly, as liquid, gas, and solid, evaporating from oceans and fresh water, moving through air, raining onto Earth, flowing through plants and animals, into the ground, and back to the oceans through rivers, streams, and...
