End of the world as we know it

But not in a bad way says local author, Dawn Belcourt.

Dawn Belcourt has been exploring her connection to the spiritual world for 15 years. Her book

It was 15 years ago that Dawn Belcourt had the first experience that informs her new book, ‘The Foundation to Creation: Ancient Spirits Reveal Sacred Knowledge of Creation, Time and Space, for the coming Golden Age’.

Belcourt, a practitioner of holistic health and healing, moved to Burns Lake from Winnipeg 20 years ago.

“When I was in university [in Winnipeg] I was taking social work,” she explained.  “Half way through I realized that I wanted to turn my direction towards the healing arts and enhancing my psychic abilities, and that’s when I left university and went into more detailed studies on my own.”

Belcourt had always been aware that she was in touch with an aspect of the spiritual world that some find improbable.

“Throughout my entire life, I’ve had encounters with the spirit world; I just didn’t understand them,” she said.

After leaving her social work studies Belcourt turned her attention toward understanding those phenomena of the ‘spirit world’ more fully.

“I left my Catholic background and started searching for answers other than what I could find in the bible,” she said.  “I started to look for answers and I found a lot of them in native traditional culture.”

“As part of a native studies course we got into Shamanism and how it was very common at one time for people to communicate with the spirit world.”

Moving to Burns Lake allowed her to find a culture and people that could nourish her spiritual exploration.  In particular, she found in Chris Charlie a mentor and spiritual guide.

Charlie, she explained, could pass energy ‘from the Creator’ through other people.

“He would put his hand out and other people would put their hand under his and he would visualize energy moving from the creator through his body to the other person,” Belcourt explained.

“He asked me if I would like to try this.  I was open to it and said sure.  What I didn’t expect was that it completely changed my world.”

After that experience with Charlie, she began to take courses in healing touch and Reiki and developed her own practice in Burns Lake.

The book has been 15 years in the making, Belcourt said.  It is based on three events in her spiritual life that take a book length treatment to do justice to.  The book is based on experience, visions, and communication with what she describes as the ancient spirits.

“I realize how controversial this subject is,” she said.

“When it comes to creation, some people cherish their beliefs and they feel like this is an attack,” she said.  “My goal is not to change people’s minds, it’s only to provide another choice.”

Her experiences have led her to believe that there are significant changes in the works that coincide with the widely publicized end of the Mayan calendar.

“The end of the Mayan calendar is not based on a date,” she explained.  “Our sun and our planet are going to be in perfect alignment with the centre of the Milky Way galaxy, and that will create an opening in time and space that will shift us to the next dimension.”

She doesn’t believe that this event should be looked at as a doom and gloom scenario.

“We should be thrilled with anticipation at the gigantic leap that humans are going to take with their spiritual evolution,” she said.  “Time as we know it is ending,” she said, “but not the world.  I want to make that very clear.”

Belcourt expects a certain level of resistance to her experience, but she is okay with that.

“Keep an open mind if you decide to read the book,” she said.  “Listen to what the ancient spirits have to say and decide if it’s for you or not.”

The  book is out and can be ordered through createspace.com, and amazon.com in hard copy or as an ebook.

It will also be available after Christmas in town at Health in Order.
