Source Within

POSTED BY Modern Earth


Inner strength is something everyone has drawn on at one point in their life or another.  But how many of us have heard of, or drawn on, our inner essence?  At Source Within, Maureen Becker and the guides known as SAM will teach you what essence is and how to find it within yourself.

Maureen Becker planned on using her education degree to teach within the public school system.  This changed when she “accidentally” spontaneously channelled the Archangel Michael while doing a BodyTalk healing session.  When recounting her first channeling experience, Maureen notes she was unsure why she was given this ability.  After researching channeling and discovering that what she experienced was not unheard of, she was able to work past the initial fear and resistance of becoming a channel, and welcomed the guidance.  In June of 2006 her now primary guide, SAM first came through.  

Who is SAM?  SAM is a collective consciousness.  They describe themselves as a collective group of spirit guides who have agreed to have one mind.  They named themselves SAM (Securely Attached to Mankind) because their goal is to give practical, down to earth advice.  They are here to help people with their journey.  Since they first came through, SAM and Maureen have committed to working together to bring messages of essence to those who want to learn.

SAM and Maureen explain essence by saying “You hold within yourself the power to be wiser in each step you take, so that each decision and ‘path’ you choose creates a better existence for you; an improvement from the day before.”.  SAM adds that they are “not here to change your belief systems” and “they’re open to talking to you if you’re open to talking to them.”.  They simply want to help individuals empower themselves to live their best life possible.

When Maureen and SAM work together to provide messages she does not go “full channel”, meaning that she melds with the guides to channel their energies while keeping her personality in place.  This enables her to present the channeled message in a way that is more like having a conversation with a close friend.  This method also helps people sort out what is holding them back, or address their subconscious unanswered questions in a way that doesn’t feel “out there”.  

Some people find that diving in head first is the best way for them to experience something new, others find that slowly wading in and testing the waters works better for them.  Maureen and the Guides are willing to meet you at whichever point you’re at, but with the recent restructuring of their services they have found an individual session as a starting point to be highly effective. Each session is unique, like the individuals they are for, but all have the same goal: to help you assess where you are in your journey, where you would like to be and providing you with a plan to reach that destination.

"The Earth Cries Out"

POSTED BY Modern Earth


Danie Botha Author WebsiteReading and writing are an escape for many from the stresses of the day to day.  It gives you a chance to be somewhere else, experience things you wouldn’t normally, and in some rare cases become someone else entirely.


Aspiring author, Danie Botha was born in Chipata, Zambia in 1957.  He spent his youth there with his parents, who had been commissioned by the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa to support the indigenous Church of Zambia.  


His family returned to South Africa in 1965; just two years before military service was made compulsory for all white males over the age of 16.  Deferral was granted only for the completion of school or a University Degree.  So, after completing his Medical Degree from the University of the Free Orange State in 1981, Danie completed two years of conscripted military service.


Danie draws from real life experiences to find the inspiration for his first novel The Earth Cries Out. Quickly growing a large following on Facebook, anticipation is high for the piece.    


A work of fiction, the novel takes place in South Africa during the time of the unrest between 1966 and 1989.  All historical facts and dates are described by the author as accurately as possible.  At the same time the story is one of family, and a reflection on aging, illness, loss and mercy.  The protagonist, Wilhelm Henning, provides a piercing look at the political turmoil of South Africa in a time of crisis and war.  Although Wilhelm is a fictional character, his experiences are very real.

Drawn to Drawing

POSTED BY Modern Earth


Al Sideen - Modern Earth Web Design - Custom Web Design - Winnipeg ManitobaWhen they are unable to articulate words, children are able to communicate by drawing the things they see in their imagination and in the world around them.  Putting pen (or crayon) to paper comes naturally to them.  Over time, most of us lose this instinct and replace it with self doubt; drawing is a skill many wish they had, yet are afraid to pursue.  

From an early age, Alan Sideen has been fascinated with ink, paper and the magic that happens when they come together in the right hands.  He taught himself to draw, learning from books and cartoons, and in 2000 started his art business.

Alan has been asked to teach art classes by many clubs and organizations; most notably Artists Emporium, one of the largest art store retailers in Western Canada.  Seizing an opportunity to pursue the activity he loved, Alan has now taught close to 2,000 fellow art enthusiasts of various ages and skill levels.

Al believes that the key to effective teaching is the ability to maintain the original sense of enthusiasm for “first timers” of the art world.  He finds this helps students develop not only their hands-on skills, but confidence in their abilities.  Many of his students have gone on to pursue their talents in different art mediums as a result of their re-established confidence.

Always looking to further his skills, and help others along the way, Al maintains a blog, updated almost daily with insights, tips and cartoons.  In addition to this, he recently published his own series of Learn to Draw Books, and offers his services as a portrait and caricature artist.   


Meeting Standards Counts Above All

HD Petroleum - Modern Earth Web Design - Custom Web Design - Winnipeg ManitobaFood on the table, a warm bed and a roof over your head; those are the things people often refer to as the bare necessities.  But what do you do when that treasured roof begins to leak?  You may find yourself banging your head against the table rather than enjoying a meal at it, and that bed likely isn’t quite as warm anymore,  Where do you turn when you need a trusted roofing contractor?   

Established in 1975, The Manitoba Shingling Contractors Association (MSCA) is here to help.  For almost 40 years the MSCA has helped homeowners find trusted roofing contractors, and has helped companies build their positive reputation in the industry.  The ultimate goal of the MSCA is to provide homeowners and construction companies a way to pre-qualify roofing and shingling contractors.  

Homeowners requiring roofing work can complete a simple form and select three MSCA members to provide a quote for their future project.  All MSCA members must be highly qualified and trustworthy.  As an independently regulated organization, the MSCA stands behind their standards, principles and ethics and expects each member to do the same.   

Companies interested in joining the MSCA must meet minimum requirements, including being COR or SECOR certified.  They must also have been actively in business for a minimum of two years.  This ensures the highest standard of quality and safety is upheld, both for homeowners and contractors.


The MSCA Board of Directors understands how important it is to hire the right contractor for the job.  The board hopes that by supporting their members they will continue to provide quality work to homeowners, which will elevate the the Manitoba Shingling industry as a whole.  Because in the end, the roof over your head protects the home you’ve made under it.
