Book Review: Struggles of a Dreamer – The Battle Between a Dream and Tradition

Posted June 8, 2018

By Yahaya Baruwa

I originally picked up this book assuming it would be about our nighttime dream state. To my pleasant surprise it turned out to be an interesting novel depicting ways in which we can live our lives. As the young boy’s grandmother reminds him “Often when the worst happens to you in life, it is not life punishing you; it is life pushing you to wake up.” Wisely included in this narrative are guidelines for living our lives,

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you read “Vision”? For some of you, it may be physical vision; our eyes and eye sight. Some readers might think of intuitive vision; our clairvoyant insights. Others might tune into the vision they hold for their lives or envision their future paths.

In this moment, let’s focus on all aspects of vision playing and working together. The vision we hold for our futures, whether it be intuitive or mentally

Book Review: “Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing”

Posted May 8, 2018

By Anita Moorjani

I first heard of this book years ago when I was apprenticing with Atherton Drenth at the Paradigm Centre. “Dying to Be Me” was frequently recommended to clients struggling with cancer or other illnesses. As Anita struggled to meet others’ expectations for her life and ignored her own needs and desires, the universe found a way to get her back on track. This book is an informative tale of her realization that surrendering to love, pureness, and

In the middle of April, I was having an acupuncture session at Guelph Community Acupuncture and received some life-changing insight. I was laying there pondering why I was so frustrated with the disharmony in our home life.

I clearly and distinctly heard “SURRENDER”.

Two of our three cats are not getting along after seven months of us trying so many different techniques. We have used the services of two different energy practitioners for animals (Avril the Indigo and Beverley at Healthy Awakenings), plus lots

In the Flow

Posted April 3, 2018

This spring, I am being reminded of how important it is to be in the flow of life. Spring has a movement. An energy. An opening. This flow can gently take us where we need to go. Or it can push and be a torrent if we struggle against it. I am choosing to go with the flow and move where the universe wants to take me.

I remember times when I struggled and pushed against the current. There were

Book Review: “Return to Pangaea – A Shamanic Journey Back to Newfoundland Roots”

Posted April 3, 2018

By Alison Normore 

Alison is a colleague, a shamanic healer, who lived in Guelph before moving back to Newfoundland (the place of her birth). As I read this, her first book, I noticed the synchronicity that led her forward on her path. When she accepted divine guidance, things proceeded more smoothly. It was also a real description of heart break and loss, which are important on the human journey of exploring our depths to find our light. With her descriptions of Guelph

Transformative Places

Posted March 6, 2018

As spring arrives, it is time to awaken.
As winter fades away, it is time to move into our light.
In the Toltec / Nahuatl tradition, we heal ourselves so we can journey into the transformative places within, allowing us to be the best manifestation of ourselves. I think about this process frequently. It is part of my own healing journey and the paths of most of my clients, friends, and colleagues.
As I was planning this

Book Review: “Violet Flame to Heal Body, Mind and Soul”

Posted February 8, 2018

By Elizabeth Clare Prophet

I started reading this book and the very next day Brenda spoke about the Violet Flame after a Light Language event. Just another example of life’s synchronicities. If you are looking for a different tool to use in stressful situations, the Violet Flame mantras might be for you. The theory is that saying these mantras repeatedly raises your vibration, clears old patterns, and changes your life. The night that I finished this book, I was saying Violet Flame

Looking Deep

Posted February 7, 2018

About a decade ago, I made a conscious decision to go deep and do my inner work. Since then, I’ve looked at my shadow and my underworlds, and have done a lot of inner healing.

Most cultures have myths about the need to walk into our wintertime shadow to find our light and our gifts. One of the most commonly studied myths is the Greek story about Persephone who was abducted by the god of the underworlds. The archetypes of maiden, mother, and

Finding Our True Selves

Posted January 8, 2018

Welcome 2018! I am grateful this year has arrived. So many things feel different already. We have settled into our new space at Orchard Park and had clients there last week. We invite you to watch this video to find out how to visit us. In the first week of 2018, I experienced more shifts and changes. One highlight was an energy healing session in which I worked on “I am ready to be my true self”. From that session,
