Mind, Body, and Spirit by Dr. Celeste London

In Writing (all kinds) on August 8, 2017 at 3:29 PM

Dr. Celeste London N.M.D

Today’s topic is about the mind and spirit. When a doctor diagnoses someone with a disease they’re most likely to go into a state of shock, denial, or dismay. Changing one’s diet is difficult for many because of the food they are accustomed to ingesting. The only way to get over this hurdle is by making the mind stronger.

When working with clients I first teach them to practice daily positive affirmations about healing and overcoming their disease. When we talk lovingly to ourselves our cells become nourished. Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water experiment which you can find on YouTube shows the effects of positive and negative words towards water crystals. It amazed me the first time I saw the experiment and it shows exactly how powerful positivity is.

Now when discussing spirit I like to think of it as energy. We can feel the energy in our environment if we pay attention. For instance, if you walk into a room where two people just had an argument you would probably notice. Are you the type of person that emits positive or negative energy? It’s good to think of this when going about your everyday life. Energy plays a huge role in how you view the situations you are in and what the results will be. Your mind and spirit can improve through practice which will help you overcome struggles you may face. That is why I use it as part of my diabetes reversal program.

Reversing disease takes will power first and foremost. You must believe that you can before anything else can start. Your mind and spirit are important tools to continuously sharpen and strengthen. By doing so you can conquer not only an illness but any negative circumstance.

Aries (21 March – 19 April) – You will have a week of working hard and not getting the financial reward that you deserve.  There is definitely potential for you to live an abundant life but there needs to be a mental shift.  Try to focus on what you are grateful for and what is working for you in an effort to attract more of that to your life. You will start to find common points even in the most complicated and provocative of situations. Your second half will remain tender and kind. Favorable Dates : Aug 10 Favorable Colors : Red & White

Taurus (20 April – 20 May ) – Good fortune is about to come your way.  This has been long awaited and looked forward to, so make the most of this wonderful opportunity. Take stock of how far you have come so you can truly appreciate the value of what you have achieved and continue to make this work for you.  It is a validation of your abilities to make the thing work. You may feel that you are ready to get stuck into a new project, job or endeavour.  It is good to be enthusiastic but makes sure you are not trying to run before you can walk. Favorable Dates : Aug 7 Favorable Colors : Red & Yellow

The New Canadian Experience from Joy (Pen Name)

In Writing (all kinds) on August 3, 2017 at 8:48 PM

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)

Canadians are kind people!

I am from East Asia.  Before I came to Toronto, my first residence was in Calgary for about three months.  I was used to a subtropical island climate and when I came it was winter in Calgary.  It was the winter that I learned that minus 40 degrees Celsius is the same as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Talk about a shock. The cold was unbelievable but even more unbelievable was that I saw a man wearing shorts.  I thought, what tough people these Canadians must be!

I wanted to work and after searching work advertisements, I discovered that there was an opening in a school for children with disabilities. This interested me, so after an adventure wading in snow up to my waist I arrived at the school. (The woman at the subway stop said the school was just over the hill so instead of continuing around the hill on the subway, I got off and tried to walk over the hill on private land.  After being chased by dogs and wondering if it was possible to drown in the snow, I arrived but I am sure I looked very sorry.)

The authorities of the school were very friendly and gave me a tour.  However, when I asked about working, I was reminded how naïve I was.  The vice-principal told me I was eligible to be a teacher at the school but only if I had an Alberta teaching license. Since I could not work at the school I decided to do volunteer work and my experience there revealed how kind Canadians are to children with disabilities.

Canadians are the kindest culture I have seen to children who have disabilities. True, it was only one school in one province and I only volunteered for a couple of months but it was such a kind atmosphere; kindness for the different levels of disabled children, kindness in giving them and their parents real respect (not pity) and in trying to give the children a chance to learn up to their potential, and the kindness shown in the quality of the facility and the investment that Canadians make in children who have limited chance to return interest on the investment. Though the characteristics of the students were different than in other schools, the staff, teachers, and administrators were just as serious and just as committed as schools for other children.  Even their language was respectful.  There was no use of terms like retarded or even crippling.  It was a learning place where even the weakest were respected and loved and it was a place that beat with sounds of a kind Canadian heart.

I did not know it then but Canadian kindness to disabled children is only one of the ways that Canada is kind.  I have later discovered their kindness toward the “exile,” their kindness toward other cultures, and even their kindness toward those who blame Canada for their own misery.

I will continue to talk about these kindnesses as well as other things that I see in Canada in my next articles.

Cheers,

Joy

[TPS] – Operation Dry Water, Toronto Police Service teams up with Canadian Safe Boating Council to reduce impaired-related deaths

Operation Dry Water, Toronto Police Service teams up with Canadian Safe Boating Council to reduce impaired-related deaths

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 – 10:34 AM
Marine
416-808-5821

Drinking and boating accounts for approximately 40% of boating-related fatalities on Canadian waterways.

To raise awareness and reduce alcohol-related deaths, the Toronto Police Service is joining the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) to launch year five of an initiative called “Operation Dry Water.” Its goal is to discourage this potentially fatal practice.

With the summer boating season in high gear, the August long weekend is the perfect time to remind Canadian boaters about the risks of impaired boating. Combined with sun, wind, waves, and the rocking motion of the boat, the effects of alcohol on the water can be greatly increased.

The CSBC and the TPS would like, through this initiative, to raise awareness of the problem of boating under the influence and to remind boaters not to drink and boat.

Operation Dry Water will focus on the potential risks of impaired boating, and remedies that are currently in place to discourage it.

Federal statutes dictate that, whether or not your craft is motorized, you can be charged with Impaired Operation of a vessel under the Criminal Code of Canada if your blood alcohol level exceeds the .08 threshold.

This means you can be charged even if you are impaired while operating a canoe. A judge is able to, upon conviction, suspend your boating privileges but that’s not all. In the eyes of the law, impaired boating, like impaired operation of a motor vehicle, is a criminal offence that can have repercussions far beyond the loss of your boating privileges.

Operation Dry Water is aimed at reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities on the water while fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use while boating. The end goal? To achieve safer and more enjoyable recreational boating.

This initiative is made possible through the support of Transport Canada’s Office of Boating Safety.

Healthy Living by Dr. Celeste London (Natural Medicine Doctor)

In Writing (all kinds) on August 1, 2017 at 9:12 AM

Hello, friends!

Today I’m going to share with you what “healthy living” means to me. There are many things that are involved in creating a healthy lifestyle. The first part consists of having a healthy relationship with yourself. A great term for this is called ‘self-love’. Self-love is viewing you in a positive light and believing in the power you possess to do great things. It also means letting go of the circumstances you can’t control by focusing on the things that give you joy. This includes not relying on someone or something to be responsible for your happiness. I strongly believe that everyone has a gift chosen by the great cosmos of the universe. It is why you and I are here on this planet. No person, place, or thing can deny you the privileges you are destined for. I stress this concept because of the times in my life when I forgot to practice self-love. I made bad decisions and descended into a very damaging state of mind. I have since come to realize that you need to make yourself a priority in your life. It is not always the easiest thing to do but giving yourself affirmation is one of the best habits you could ever start. The second part of healthy living consists of performing an activity that makes you ecstatic. Everyone has busy lives and with it comes to a lot of stress. Taking the time out of your day to do something, no matter how small, can make a big difference in your life. For example, one of my favourite activities to practice is Kundalini Yoga. It helps me become Zen and it is also a great workout. This leads me into the final part of a healthy lifestyle which is the most obvious one: eating well and exercising. This is difficult for some people to accomplish and I understand this because I can relate since I am a mother of three. Changing your eating habits or finding the time to move your body can be hard but if “healthy living” is your goal, it must become a priority. My definition of healthy living is practicing self-love, doing fun activities to relieve stress, and eating right in hand with exercise. We all have the ability to build and create our own unique healthy lifestyles so let’s all keep striving!
