Publisher's Message ~ July 2015 Issue

reetings OK In Health members,
June had to be the most amazing month as OK In Health hosted a range of fabulous and inspiring events
and there are still some more events to happen.

In June OK In Health hosted the Okanagan Sacred Energy Festival with over 29 people from all over Canada and US attending. The 10 days included an Expo, 3 day Celtic Vibrational Land Healing Course and day tours to sacred sites in the Okanagan.

Mother Earth connects with Penticton - On Thursday June 18th we just did a land clearing/healing at my house in the afternoon with 24 people from the Jane Donald and Maria Carr's 3 day Celtic Vibrational Land Healing Course. This was part of their course to do a land clearing/healing at end. We finished the land healing at 4:44pm and one minute later as we stood in circle we had a 2.5 mg earthquake, only 1 KM straight up behind my house that shook the whole town of Penticton and was felt as far as Summerland – There was a large bang and the ground shook below us. It felt like Mother Earth was shifting the land back in balance. It is all over the news here - absolutely amazing eh!

Next Ireland's Jane Donald and Maria O'Farrell Carr are teaching the Celtic Vibrational Land Healing Course in Calgary July 4th and Tacoma July 11th. This one day workshop introduces you to the Celtic Vibrations, your Fairy Team and the elementals, land clearing, sacred sites, meet your power animal and power guides and how to heal the land and heal Lightworkers symptoms. - More details...


The Okanagan Angels and Fairies Expo was held on June 13 & 14. OK In Health hosted the 2nd annual Expo and we had a fantastic turn out both days.
A huge big thanks to everyone who came out to share the energy of the Angels and Fairies with us. We were so delighted to see so many wonderful people there. Big thanks to all the readers, healers, practitioners and vendors. Thanks you to all our amazing inspiring speakers - what a treat to hear them all. Huge big hugs and thanks to all our team of people that help us run the expo.... to Judy, Eleanor, Diane and Elaine, to Rayah, Gord and Liam, to Monica, Perry, Bernice, to the talented Classic Guitar player Evan Robillard, Jane, Jan and Greg, Candance and a big standing ovation of gratitude to our Brilliant MC Dylan Smeaton who kept the whole weekend running so beautiful. Hope i didn't miss anyone. Big thanks to everyone without you this weekend would not of been such a magical event. 

Hello, everyone I’m Sandra Dequier I just want to let you all know that I’m having a blast at this event, I’m learning a lot, something that I was always intrigue by and now I’m learning… Thanks to Maria O'Farrell Carr for putting this event together

OK In Health hosted the Okanagan's Largest Summer Solstice in Penticton on June 21st and it was truly the largest solstice event I have ever attend. Thank you to everyone for joining us as ONE, for the Solstice. When we started at 3:33 and there was 133 people and this expanded to about 150. I believe we had the largest Summer Solstice the Okanagan has ever seen! What a day! There were people from South, Central and North Okanagan, Vancouver, Van Island, from across BC, AB, SK + WA, USA and from Ireland. Nearly 2,000 people have watched the video done by Rita Montgomery on Facebook. The energy and fun was magical. Thank you everyone for creating a joy-filled event.

Click on the add a recipe link on our recipe page.

Basil Tomato Cream Cheese Frittata

Frittata is the Italian word for omelette. Frittatas are prepared differently than omelettes, usually started on the stovetop and finished under the broiler. The result is an egg dish that is firm, and nicely brown on the top and edges. Frittatas require an ovenproof skillet for preparation, but no other special equipment. These are great dishes to highlight fresh, seasonal ingredients or a perfect way to utilize leftovers. Frittatas are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Once cooked, they can be served hot, or cooled and served at room temperature. This flat omelette style dish will serve 4 to 6 people easily, often many more, as a frittata can have a dozen eggs or more in the dish along with fillers such as cheese, meat, and vegetables.

Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole

It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes. Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September. The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene. Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats). So this recipes makes a great team.

Pineapple Pecan Muffins

Gluten-free Muffins. These were a pleasant surprise as they have only honey as a sweetener. They do brown quickly but don’t be fooled. Allow them to bake for their full time. Pineapple is one of those foods that is heaven to eat. A good, juicy ripe pineapple can satisfy a sweet craving as well as any chocolate bar. In addition to being a delicious food, there are many health benefits of pineapple. Pineapple is Loaded with Vitamins and Minerals. The obvious benefits of pineapple are all the vitamins and minerals the fruit is loaded with. Its nutrients include calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. In addition it is low in fat and cholesterol.

What does a pendulum look like? A pendulum is a weight suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely. It is any object with a point on one side that can be hung from a string or a chain so the point is facing the floor. Examples of pendulums are a crystal, a wooden ball, a cross, a needle, even a nail on a string. My favourite is a wooden pendulum on a string made of a Yew tree.


1) Before you work with a pendulum it must be programmed like a computer.
2) Hold the object of your choice on a 2-3 inch chain/string etc in front of you.
3) Say mentally or out loud, “Pendulum, when I ask you a question and the answer is ‘YES’ I want you to swing clockwise and then you ask the pendulum to swing clockwise.
4) When I ask you a question and the answer is ‘NO’ I want you to swing counter-clockwise and this time ask it to swing counter-clockwise. For some people a ‘No’ will swing side to side.
Always stop the pendulum before asking a new question.
Ask your question.

HEALING GRIEF by renowned medium James Van Praagh (Talking to Heaven, Reaching to Heaven) says he has listened intensely for thousands of hours to "the subtle whispers between our earthly world and the finer etheric world of spirit." In writing this book on grieving, Van Praagh hopes to offer comfort and reassurance of eternal life, "so that you do not have to go through the rest of your days groping blindly in sorrow and pain," he explains. Yet Van Praagh also offers doses of his own hard-earned wisdom, keeping this guidebook firmly grounded in an earth-smart kind of reality.

Healing Grief is divided into four sections: The first part addresses "The Process," how humans cope with grief, including personal ruminations on the classic four stages. In part 2 Van Praagh speaks to "When Someone You Love Dies," offering specific essays on losing parents, grandparents, siblings, lovers, best friends. In part 3 he recognizes the numerous other losses that we grieve over--divorce, midlife crisis, losing a home or a job. In the final section Van Praagh speaks to reclaiming our lives, calling upon all that he believes of the after-life as well as listing specific rituals and activities that promote healing. Fans will appreciate his characteristically smooth writing style and the numerous fascinating anecdotes from his clients. --Gail HudsonAbout the author (1999)

Spiritual medium James Van Praagh, author of Talking To Heaven, is best known for his purported ability to provide a bridge between the living and the departed. A regular on NBC's The Other Side, Van Praagh discontinued his private appointments to make time for the lecture circuit, workshops, and television appearances, including Paranormal Borderline, The Maury Povich show, The View, The George and Alana Show and Unsolved Mysteries. He was also featured on the Voyage of Enlightment, a four-day spiritual cruise from Los Angeles to Mexico. Although based in West Hollywood, California, Van Praagh travels most of the year on personal appearances.

In fact, it’s probably even safe to say that saying some type of grace or thanks is a tradition that is present pretty much throughout the entire world in one type of fashion or another....
