Steamed Asparagus with Lemon Butter

Lemon with Asparagus make a wonderful zesty team. Asparagus is an alkaline food which is rich in protein but low in calories and carbohydrates. Although it's available all year round, asparagus usually is most found and best in spring and is harvested when it is about 6 to 8 inches tall. It is an excellent source of potassium, folic acid, vitamins A, C and K, and traces of vitamin B complex. A good source of dietary fiber, asparagus is also rich in niacin, phosphorus and very low sodium. And my favourite health benefit of asparagus and certainly most impressive is that it is one of those few vegetables that actually has the calcium and magnesium in the ideal ratio of 2:1.

Curried Garlic Greens

When some people hear the word "greens," they immediately conjure up childhood memories of overcooked lumps of vegetation they were forced to eat and hated. But the vegetable section of the grocery or health store is a different world today, brimming with a variety of greens such as spinach, chard, kale, mustard, collards and bok choy that are tasty as well as excellent sources of vitamins and minerals. Iron, calcium and folic acid (an important B vitamin that helps prevent birth defects and offers protection from heart disease) are abundant in these leafy veggies. Greens can have strong tastes, but we encourage you to experiment with varieties you've never tried or haven't had in a while. You'll be in for a pleasant surprise.

Country Comfort Muffins

This recipe is packed with raw seeds with just enough of a sweet balance that your family will love them! This Halloween, don't forget to save those pumpkin seeds after you scoop them out. Pumpkin seeds are not only delicious but also provide many health benefits. Such as: Prostate Protection, They promote overall prostate health and alleviate the difficult urination associated with an enlarged prostate. Also beneifical for Improved Bladder Function, Depression Treatment, Prevention of Osteoporosis, Natural Anti-Inflammatory, Prevention of Kidney Stones,Treatment of Parasites, Great Source of Magnesium. Pumpkin seeds contain phytosterols, compounds that that have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol. The same phytosterols that lower cholesterol also protect against many cancers.

How do we strengthen our chakras and keep them strong?


One way is you can walk in nature to ground and center yourself. Ideally you want to be in a place that is away from city traffic, electromagnetic interference such as cell phones, cell phone towers, power lines or on paved pathways.

Look for a places that is connected with Mother Nature. This can be in a local park, along the water such as a lake or river, a school field or even a grassy area in your back yard/garden.

Start with a walk with mother nature asking to connect with her loving energy. Feel the earth beneath your feet. Let go off any stressful thoughts and focus on the beauty around you. Feel the wind or sun on your face. Connect with Father Sky and the birds. If you don’t have time for a walk then just stand on a grassy area and connect.

At the end of your walk intentionally declare that your chakras are totally aligned and strengthened. How would you know if this is so? Intuitively you would hear, see, know or feel that the chakras have aligned. Or you can use a pendulum to check to see if your chakras have aligned. Be sure to check each chakra individually.

Another way is to visit a practitioners that does energy work or try a Chakradance class or listen to a Chakra balancing CD.

Sacred Messages from Sacred Ireland - Jane Donald

A story of Jane Donald's personal experience from illness to recovery through the discovery and use of one's own energy and inner healing power. Follow the path where it lead into nature and Sacred sites in Ireland. The gift of inspirational channeled messages illustrated by beautiful photography. Insightful messages allowing people to connect to their inner power and appreciate their own lifeforce that courses through their physical bodies and which unites them with every other living consciousness in the Universe. Helping people to understand that the Universe is vibrational and all is energy, love and light, a part of eternity, part of timelessness.

About the author:

Jane channels messages from the Lifeforce through Green Man energy. It is for mankind to be aware of the power of love. Love is the answer, love is the power to heal the world - fear is the enemy - allow yourself to be in your heart, allow yourself to be, concentrate on being, concentrate on allowing yourself to be all that you can be, all that you are, allow yourself to be the power of love in the world - shine that light of love in all areas of your life and everything you do will flourish and be blessed. Love is the basis of all life, love is the force that flows through us all and breathes life from our soul and shines through our eyes. Love is the beauty of our soul, the song of our heart and the beating of our heart. Love is the part of us that flows through all we do, say and think - that is what we want to know - that is what we want to be all our lives - that is what we want to feel all our lives. Love is the most powerful force in all the world - the most accessible power to us all when we open our hearts to our true potential and to our true purpose in life.

The Green Man is an Ascended Master who are great spiritual teachers, healers, powerful guides who can help in all aspects of your life. The Green Man is the face of nature and an ancient fertility deity who helps crops to grow, he represents the healing effects of nature. Call on the Green Man to help increase your connection to nature or to help in your garden or farm. Especially for people whose purpose involves the environment, nature,flower essences, crystals, plant spirit medicine or other natural healing methods. Often represented in paintings and cravings in ancient churches in western Europe and India and popularly associated with the Hill of Tara in Co Meath, Ireland.

Why and how Jane became a healer

Following a collapse in 2000 at the age of 26 with M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), (or Post Viral Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome) and subsequent years of chronic exhaustion and debilitating illness that Jane began to explore her sensitivity to energy and holistic health therapies to aid in the recovery of her health, energy and wellbeing.

OK In Health’s "Okanagan Angels and Fairies Fair"

Under the Umbrella of the OK In Health eMagazine and Angel Empowerment Practitioners™, the first annual OK In Health’s "Okanagan Angels and Fairies Day" had its debut on Saturday June 14, at the Shatford Center in Penticton. There were vendors and practitioners in from our three western provinces, and one in from South Africa. The was a day full of Angel and Fairy talks, acquainting people with the possibilities of working with their Angelic Guides and Fairies Folk. It was a magical day, the energy was clear, playful, and Angelic. The public loved the talks, the vendors, and many took advantage of the Angel Card Readings, Fairy reading, Intuitive reading and many other readers, and practitioners that were present for the day.

It is with great anticipation that we look forward to this year Expo on June 13 and 14, 2015, as many people left the day asking when it was going to happen again!

OK In Health’s Summer Solstice – Okanagan Lake Vortex Gathering

Last year on June 21st we had a wonderful 'Gathering' ceremony on the Okanagan Lake beach, close to the Marina in Penticton at 11:11am. We gathered to assist Archangels Michael and Metatron to do some sacred work with the new Trinity Era energy and clearing/re-activation of the earthstar energy wheel and to welcome in the Summer Solstice. The day was so beautiful with clear blue skies and surround by the clear blue lake. A duck came into our circle to join us again and a friend people who were at the beach came over to join us too. Thank you to everyone who came from along the valley to join us.

This year we will again gathering along the Okanagan Lake at Marina Beach Park. On June 21st at 3:33pm we aim to create the largest Summer Solstice our valley has seen. We invite you to join us in Penticton and to invite your friends and your groups. This event is part of the Okanagan Sacred Land Festival that is running in Penticton from June 12 to June 22, so we already will have a good size group attending coming from the valley, across Canada, USA and from Ireland.

So we thought wouldn’t be amazing if we had a huge group of like-minded people gather together as one. What a dream! We would love to create the largest Summer Solstice similar to a Guinness world record. :O)
What fun!
So we are calling all healers, vibrational workers, those who are Seekers, just starting their own journey, to... Mentors, those who have been working in the community for years. Everyone is welcome. No experience is required.

This is an opportunity to gather as One, and stand together with the people in our Okanagan Valley community to celebrate the amazing energy of this sacred place, vortex and magnificent of the Okanagan Lake.

The Okanagan is a sacred place as it is the 18th point on the North American EarthStar Energy Wheel and Penticton connects to the Earth wheel and from there many Leylines travel out from his point. The Okanagan Lake itself is a vortex point

This is a Valley wide community event. If you have a group and you would like to support or take part of this gathering please PM and we will add your name to the groups that are joining this community event such as:
* The OK In Health eMagazine
* The Okanagan Sacred Land Festival Group
* Celebration Centre and Metaphysical Society, Penticton
* The Okanagan Angel Empowerment Practitioners Group
* White Lioness Metaphysical Store, Penticton
* Energy Healers Exchange Group, Penticton
* Studio 3, Penticton

Allowing expansiveness in your inner being by Jane Donald

Bench Words by Carole Fawcett
“I sat here and contemplated suicide” was scribbled in red on a bench by a bus stop. The despair in those words stopped me in my tracks. Unresolved emotional baggage from the past can present itself with the right trigger. If you are a person who is feeling sad most of the time, or if you are contemplating suicide, or have a friend who is, please reach out to...
Company's coming by Alexis Costello
Food is an intimate thing; we use it to nourish and care for each other on a very primal level and it can make the difference between someone feeling welcome in your home and someone feeling threatened. Because I didn’t realize this when I was younger, and insisted on doggedly shoving tofu under people’s noses, I have extended family who are still afraid to even try anything I serve them!
Dealing with Difficult Times by Sue Chambers
What do we do when we are faced with a crisis? How do we deal with the fear and anxiety that wreaks havoc in our minds?
Future-Shaping by Honouring the Past by Laurie Bartley
Let’s honour future generations with the benefits of healthful, vibrant lives - people who see themselves as complete human beings - people who are connected with each other by caring and compassion.
Guides and Angels by Monika Muranyi
The belief in the existence of guides and Angels has been around for thousands of years. However, what’s new is that we are beginning to have new understandings about these beautiful and sacred helpers. As humanity evolves, it is time to apply spiritual maturity to esoteric teaching. It may come as a surprise, but your guides are actually part of you; and the Angels exist as a multi-dimensional soup of energy around you. Together, guides and Angels are part of a benevolent system to help us ascend and create peace on Earth.
How Important Are Bees? by Klaus Ferlow
We are all familiar with honey bees but do you really know how important they are for sustaining life of human beings?
Incarnated Angels and Starpeople by Doreen Virtue
People have come from all over the universe to live upon earth. In my private psychic counseling practice, I've been able to get to know many people whose origins are not of this earth. I've learned that there are many incarnated extraterrestrials (ETs), angels, and walk-ins upon the planet right now. The first time I worked with an incarnated ET—what I call a "star person," I was startled. She defied all of my stereotypes about extraterrestrials. She looked a lot like an ordinary person (although there are some...
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...
Miso, Tamari, Kim chee, Kefir, Kombucha, and Rejuvelac! by Sandra Butler
Miso, Tamari, Kim chee, Kefir, Kombucha, and Rejuvelac! For a moment I felt as though I was beginning to speak a foreign language. Did you think I was? Add the following words to the above – apple cider vinegar, yogurt, wine and sauerkraut. Are you beginning to get the picture? Yes, all of the above words belong to the family of fermented or cultured products...
Strong Core and Quads! by Sonya Patrick
Now that autumn and all it holds is upon us, we may find that we do not have as much time to go the gym or get outside and exercise as often as we should. By strengthening the Quadriceps (the largest muscle in the body) we can build lean muscle mass thus helping to increase metabolism and of course they will look good enough for short shorts!!....
Tears in Heaven by Brian Weiss
In his song “Tears in Heaven,” Eric Clapton wonders whether his young son, who had tragically died in an accident, would know his name if they met in heaven. His is a universal and ageless question. How will we recognize our loved ones? Will we know them, and will they know us, if and when we meet again, whether in heaven or on earth, once more in physical bodies?
Tir Na N’Og and Lough Leane, Killarney by Maria O'Farrell Carr
