New Book about Okanagan Leylines and Vortices 
The Story of a Stone Circle and of one of Ireland's Leylines
 By Celtic Wisdom Keeper Maria O’Farrell Carr
'This book is designed to share with you the amazing adventure and spiritual journey that took place in Ireland. Along with the story of messages given to Maria O'Farrell Carr from Archangel Michael and Angel Jerome. It is also a book that explores the stone circles, vortex and leylines in Ireland and in England, the OKANAGAN, BC Canada, North America and Hawaii. It is about some of the energy places that we have visited on our Sacred Tours. It reflects the new energy changes that we are experiencing now and I hope that it also enhances your spiritual connection to these magical places.'

Raspberry Jam Salad Dressing with Omega Oils

Use Organic when you can. This quick and easy raspberry dressing that uses just three ingredients to make a vegan salad dressing. It is perfect for a spinach or fruit salad. I have used this often when run out of a dressing or when camping.

Matcha Green Tea Ice cream

Here is a recipe for green tea ice cream that uses an ice cream maker. So delicious and refreshing! The health benefits of matcha tea exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content. Amongst its many benefits, matcha... •Is packed with antioxidantsincluding the powerful EGCg •Boosts metabolism and burns calories •Detoxifies effectively and naturally •Calms and relaxes •Enhances mood and aids in concentration •Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium •Fights against viruses and bacteria •Is rich in fiber •Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar •Does not raise insulin levels

Cat Tuna Cookies

Home made cookies are great for cats. Full of good omega oils, fiber, and protein. Always use fresh ingredients for the healthiest and tastiest meals. Use fun cookie cutter shapes. It is very important that you do not give food to your cats while it is still hot.

I am trying to eat more fresh fruit and vegetable. Do you have a list of when fruits and vegetables are in season?

There's nothing healthier than fresh fruits and vegetables. You can get these at your local supermarket, or from the proliferation of summertime roadside stands or your local Farmers market is a great option.

The high fiber content of fruits and vegetables is excellent for flushing toxic residues out of the body. Here are the dates for the more popular summer fruits and vegetables.

Try to buy produce that is as fresh as you can get it and buy organic fruit and veg where possible, as they obviously have fewer toxins. A good greengrocer will usually have much fresher fruits and vegetables than the large supermarket chains. The fresher the good, the higher the nutritional value. Fresh herbs are also full of healthful properties, so use them liberally. The ideal, of course, is to grow your own herbs and vegetables, but this is not possible for most of us.

Here are the dates for the more popular summer fruits and vegetables...

Addictions by Monika Muranyi
Many of us do not understand why or how individuals become addicted to certain substances. There is often a mistaken assumption that the addictive habit can be overcome with sheer willpower. The reality is that many people do not have control over their addiction, and even if they want to stop, they can’t! The spiritual reason, according to Kryon (through Lee Carroll), is a lack of self-worth.

Kahuna, Uli, and Lemuria by Maria O'Farrell Carr
The Kahuna are the shamans and healers Hawai’i. They were the guardians of Huna, the “profound inner knowledge”. In ancient Hawai’i, the Kahuna healed and taught in the spirit and vibration of *Aloha*. the vibration of *Aloha* is spirit manifesting through love. The concept of *Aloha* is being in the presence of spirit. The purpose behind the *Kahuna* teachings is the revelation of...

The Difference Between a Shaman and a Doctor by Dylan Smeaton, CBP
As far back as recorded history goes, even as far back as human community goes, there have been individuals within their respective societies tasked with the gift of healing. Medicine men, shamans, doctors and the various names healers of the like have, used their knowledge and resources to the best of their ability to serve their respective community. The specific techniques, treatments and protocols practiced by each respective practitioner varied society to society, and thus, of course, their results naturally varied as well; but their goals all remained the same no matter where or when on Earth they practiced.....
What is the BodyTalk System? by Dr. John Veltheim
The basic premises underlying The BodyTalk System constitute a new paradigm for synchronizing and balancing the bodymind that can be implemented in conjunction with any health care system. The BodyTalk System recognizes that within each and every one of us there lies the innate knowing of who we are and what makes us tick.

July 2016

Tip of the Month:

Upon reflection, as the current New Moon cycle draws to a close, some very pivotal events have occurred in the world. Britain’s break from the EU is uppermost among these. The entire cycle was loaded with powerful events as was indicated by the powerful Mutable Grand Square and triple conjunction.

The next New Moon occurs on July 3 for most of the world but on the 4th in the Pacific, Alaskan and Hawaiian time zones. Where last month’s New Moon hosted a rare and powerful exact triple conjunction with Venus, this month Mercury is in close alignment with the Sun and Moon. Because this occurs in the sign of Cancer, we can expect a peak in the graph for otherwise rational perspectives to be influenced by subjective, emotional sentiments.

Themes of change and transformation and all the emotional dramas which usually accompany these are indicated. There is also a distinct emphasis on healing and it leans toward the tone of a major operation as opposed...

"BodyTalk is my saviour, it has literally saved my life.  It gave me the strength and confidence that I needed to leave my abusive marriage, which I tried unsuccessfully to do for years!  It saved my son and I from an unhappy existence.  I feel like its changed me in so many ways: I'm happy, confident and I make decsions much easier.  I trust my intuition and I find that I sweat the small stuff anymore, and at work I find the things that would have stressed me out before just bounce off of me now.  I am very happy to have reached my ultimate goal of happiness and freedom.  I feel that it's all because of what BodyTalk can do!  I would strongly recommend it to everyone!"
