From supporting a healthy libido to building muscle mass, testosterone is an important hormone that has a massive influence on men’s health. Testosterone levels (sometimes called T levels) decline with age.
The effects of “low-T” are cumulative, meaning the lower they go, the more you feel the symptoms. Many men say that the more their testosterone levels decline, the older they feel. Want to know how to increase testosterone? Read on!


Although some men seek out anti-aging clinics and testosterone therapy, there’s actually an array of strategies — from exercise and diet to vitamins, minerals, and hormone-boosting herbs — that can support healthy testosterone levels naturally. You can even eat certain foods that increase testosterone as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Here, we’ll describe and compare some of the lifestyle-oriented initiatives that men can take to encourage a healthy balance of this important hormone.

What Does Testosterone Do?

An anabolic steroid, testosterone is the primary male hormone. Though testosterone levels are substantially higher in men, women produce a small amount of the hormone as well.
In men, the testes produce most of your testosterone. In women, the ovaries produce testosterone. The adrenal gland produces some testosterone in both sexes.
In addition to enhancing sex drive in both men and women, testosterone plays a key role in the growth and repair of reproductive tissues.
In men, the hormone also promotes masculine or male characteristics during puberty and throughout life, such as a deep voice, body and facial hair growth, increased muscle growth, and greater bone mass.
Testosterone also helps the body produce red blood cells and sperm and plays a supporting role in the overall health of your body. Last but not least, low levels of testosterone may contribute to belly fat.

Natural Ways to Increase Testosterone

Using pharmaceuticals to enhance testosterone, such as injections, patches, and topical gels, may bring dangerous side effects.
It also is not necessary, since many natural methods — including exercise, diet modification, stress reduction, and supplements to increase testosterone — work quite well! Below are some of the best tried-and-true natural solutions to increasing testosterone, no matter your age.

Go to the Gym

Getting regular physical activity is a great way to boost your testosterone. Studies show that men who are physically active produce more testosterone than men who aren’t — perhaps because exercise sends your body the message that it needs stronger muscles and bones.[1]
The best workouts for increasing testosterone are weight lifting and high-intensity interval training — sometimes called HIIT.
Resistance training with weights is an excellent way to increase testosterone, as is high-intensity interval training (HIIT).[2] Leg workouts may even be particularly effective at testosterone-boosting.
Being overweight leads to lower testosterone levels, but even obese individuals can offset the hormone’s loss with increased physical activity.[3]

Get Quality Sleep

Science shows that lack of sleep impacts testosterone production.
Be sure to get enough shut-eye, because sleep deprivation can affect your testosterone levels. Several studies found that insufficient sleep correlates with lower testosterone in the blood.[4, 5]
While everyone is different and recommended sleep times can vary, aim for at least seven to nine hours of zzz’s nightly. If you’re having trouble sleeping, check out our article on how to get more sleep.

Lose Weight

A higher weight usually means lower testosterone levels.
It’s a fact that being obese or overweight corresponds with low-T levels. Not only do obese men tend to have lower testosterone, but low testosterone affects metabolism and may hinder fat loss.[6, 7]
In other words, it’s a two-way street. If you are overweight with low-T levels, come up with a weight loss and calorie plan.
Try adopting a vegetarian or vegan plant-based diet while maintaining good nutrition and healthy levels of protein and fat. You can even incorporate weight loss supplements into your diet.

Eat Testosterone-Boosting Foods

Eating plenty of whole-food macronutrients — protein, carbohydrates, and fats — can help you maintain healthy testosterone levels.
In one study, hospital patients with depleted protein and fat reserves had lower total testosterone.[8]Another study found that, while testosterone levels rise during exercise, eating carbohydrates helps to maintain high levels during rest periods as well.[9]
Make sure you eat healthy carbs, like those in organic fruit and vegetables, and plant-based proteins, like legumes, nuts, and gluten-free protein-rich grains like quinoa, rather than processed, sugar-heavy foods.
Did you know that red meat can lower your sex hormones and sperm count?
Avoid meat! One study reported that men who ate processed red meat had a lower sperm count than men who did not eat processed red meat.[10]
Also, be sure to add healthy fats to your diet. Avocados, nuts, and seeds are all great sources. Swapping out saturated fats (such as butter) for monounsaturated healthy fats such as olive oil can support testosterone production.[11] Exceptions exist, such as coconut oil, which has different effects on metabolism than other saturated fats.[12]

Take Herbs, Vitamins, and Minerals

A deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals could be a culprit in low testosterone. Be sure that you get enough vitamin D, zinc, and magnesium in particular. Also, try herbs such as fenugreek and ashwagandha, which may act as natural testosterone boosters.

Vitamin D3

Studies associate vitamin D deficiency with low-T and suggest that supplementation can support normal testosterone levels.[13]
The exact relationship of vitamin D levels and testosterone is complex as vitamin D is believed to be involved with the synthesis of the testosterone hormone, not the direct production. Other ways to raise vitamin D levels include getting enough sunshine and eating foods rich in vitamin D.

Zinc

An essential dietary mineral, zinc also affects testosterone levels. Zinc deficiency can lead to low-T and zinc supplementation can support normal levels of the hormone. In one study, a supplement of 30 mg of zinc per day helped raise testosterone in zinc-deficient men.[14]

Magnesium

It turns out that low magnesium levels also correlate with low-T in men. As a result, taking magnesium appears to boost testosterone.[15]
Both athletes and sedentary men who supplemented with 10 mg of magnesium per kilogram of body weight (e.g., 680 mg daily for a man weighing 68 kg, or 150 pounds) increased their testosterone levels — although the effect was greater for the men who also exercised.[16]
Be sure to eat plenty of avocados, bananas, spinach, legumes, nuts, and seeds — all good sources of dietary magnesium.

Fenugreek

A medicinal herb in traditional Asian medicine, fenugreek may help to boost testosterone levels. In one study, a daily supplement of 500 mg of fenugreek boosted testosterone in men who also engaged in resistance training.[17] Another study found that men who took 600 mg of fenugreek daily reported a boost in libido and sexual function.[18] You can find fenugreek in the spice aisle, or take it as a supplement.

Ashwagandha

Healthcare providers who are trained in the traditional Indian medicine known as Ayurveda may recommend the herb ashwagandha for male sexual dysfunction and infertility.
In one review of the science, men using ashwagandha root extract had a 17 percent increase in testosterone levels after 90 days, compared with the placebo group.[19]

Tribulus

Another herb that’s popular in traditional Asian medicine, Tribulus terrestris enjoys a reputation as a natural aphrodisiac that can support healthy sex drive and optimal testosterone levels.
Tribulus supplementation showed a 16 percent increase in testosterone levels. One study found an improvement in sexual health symptoms after 60 days of taking tribulus, including a jump in testosterone levels.[20]

DHEA

A hormone produced in the adrenal glands, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is also available as a supplement made from wild yam. DHEA plays a role in the formation of both testosterone and estrogen, functioning as a precursor to both hormones in the body.
Some men take DHEA to boost T levels and improve sexual function and athletic performance.[21, 22]

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids may support healthy blood levels of testosterone. Omega-3s also led to higher serum testosterone.[23]
The researchers found that EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) — an omega-3 fatty acid — played an important role in testosterone metabolism. The healthiest option is a plant-based omega-3 supplement made from microalgae oil.

D-Aspartic Acid

A natural amino acid that is available in supplement form, D-aspartic acid plays a role in the production and release of testosterone in the body.
In one small study, men given a daily dose of D-aspartic acid for 12 days had increased testosterone production.[24]

Reduce Your Stress Levels

Stress has harmful effects on every aspect of your health, including reproductive health. Released during stress, the “stress hormone” cortisol can impede testosterone, blocking its effect in the body.[25]
Even in women, stress can effectively lower testosterone levels, as evidenced in a study of female students anticipating an important exam.[26]
Try reducing stress by incorporating meditationdeep breathing exercises, taking relaxing walks, listening to music, and even dancing. For more ideas, check out our article on how to manage your stress.

Cut Out Alcohol

Several studies link higher alcohol consumption with lower testosterone levels.[27] Even moderate alcohol, consumed regularly, can impact your production of the hormone.
Beer contains hops, a phytoestrogen (a plant form of estrogen). It’s also packaged in aluminum cans with plastic liners, both of which can affect hormone levels.[28] In one study, blood testosterone decreased by 6.8 percent in men who drank beer with dinner during two successive periods of three weeks.[29] If you’re concerned about low-T it may be time to give up beer, and other alcohol as well.

Avoid Endocrine-Disrupting Hormones

It’s no secret that human-created chemicals permeate the world, from the BPA in canned food to pesticide residue on your produce. Some of these chemicals are xenoestrogens — compounds that mimic estrogen — which can impede the production of testosterone in the body.
One study linked prenatal and childhood exposure to BPA and phthalates with lower testosterone levels in adolescence.[30] To avoid these chemicals, eat organic and read the labels on your household and cosmetic products.

Signs and Causes of Low Testosterone

When testosterone drops below the normal range, you may notice changes including:
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low energy
  • Increased body fat
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Reduced bone mass
  • Mood changes such as depression or irritability
  • Reduced body or facial hair
In addition to normal aging, causes of low testosterone can range from hormonal disorders and infection to chronic illness and obesity. Injury to the testicles, as well as testicular cancer, can also impact testosterone levels. In some instances, the reason for low-T is a mystery.

Normal Testosterone Levels

Although opinions differ about what constitutes low testosterone, the diagnosis usually accompanies a blood testosterone level of less than 300 ng/dL in men.
Those aiming to restore optimal testosterone levels should aim to bring the hormone to the range of 425 to 1,000 ng/dL.[31] Women usually have a range much lower, averaging 21 ng/dl.[32]

Points to Remember

Testosterone, the primary male sex hormone, plays a variety of roles in human health. Not only does it support libido and sexual health including playing a role in the production of sperm, but testosterone also helps build muscle and bone mass and helps your body produce red blood cells.
Testosterone levels naturally decline with age and can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, low motivation, lower sex drive, erectile dysfunction, increased body fat, and reduced muscle and bone mass.
As an alternative to traditional testosterone therapies like patches, gels, and injections, many natural remedies can also help bring this hormone back in balance in men.
Natural ways to boost testosterone include getting regular exercise and quality sleep, losing weightavoiding alcohol, reducing stress, and preventing deficiencies of vitamin D, zinc, and magnesium. Aim to keep testosterone in the normal range, over 425 ng/dL, to avoid the symptoms of low-T.

5G Danger: 13 Reasons New Millimeter Wave Tech Will Be a Catastrophe for Humanity ~ Makia Freeman

5G Danger: 

13 Reasons New Millimeter Wave Tech Will Be a Catastrophe for Humanity.

5G (5th Generation) is now being actively rolled out in many cities around the world. Simultaneously, as awareness over its horrific health and privacy impacts is rising, many places are issuing moratoriums on it or banning it, such as the entire nation of Belgium, the city of Vaud (Switzerland) and San Francisco (USA). Radiofrequency radiation (RF or RFR) and electromagnetic fields (EMF) are being increasingly recognized as new types of pollution – environmental pollution. Here are 13 reasons exposing the 5G danger, which could turn into an unmitigated health and privacy catastrophe if enough people don’t rise up to stop it.


1. 5G Danger: Hijacking Your Sweat Duct Antennae

The 5G network uses and broadcasts frequencies which affect our sweat ducts, which act as antennae. In other words, our largest organ, the skin, can be influenced and manipulated by 5G. As I reported in this the article 5G and IoT: Total Technological Control Grid Being Rolled Out Fast, scientist Dr. Ben-Ishai exposed the connection between 5G and our body’s sweat ducts in this video:
“[The 5G frequencies] will zap [us] with wavelengths that will interact with the geometrical structure of our skin … We found that sweat ducts work like helical antennas … the sweat duct was an integral part of the mechanism for the absorption of energy, electromagnetic, between 75-100 GHz, and that if you changed the character of the sweat duct, i.e. made it work, you could actually change that absorption at some point, and if you could do that you could trace how a person is under stress.“

2. 5G Danger: 5G Amplifies EMF Damage via VGCCs

Wireless radiation and EMF scientist Dr. Martin Pall has done groundbreaking research in explaining exactly how EMFs cause premature aging and injury to the human body, including damage to fertility, brains, hearts and even DNA! He pioneered research showing how EMFs activate the body’s VGCCs (Voltage-gated calcium channels) which causes them to release excess calcium ions into the cell. This then leads to nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide which react nearly instantaneously to form peroxynitrite and free radicals. Many studies like this show peroxynitrite damages DNA. Dr. Pall has stated unequivocally that the“5G rollout is absolutely insane.”

3. 5G Danger: Pulsed Wave Far More Damaging than Continuous Wave Radiation

A significant and unique feature of Smart Meters is that they emit pulsed wave radiation not continuous wave radiation. In other words, they run in start-stop cycles of emitting a burst of EMF then going temporarily inactive. This happens an incredibly high amount of times per day; court documents with testimony from utility companies (like Pacific Gas and Electric Company of California) reveal that smart meters send pulsed waves between 9,600 and 190,000 times per day!
In this 2018 video, Dr. Pall states there are 13 studies which show that pulsed wave EMFs are more active (and dangerous) than continuous wave EMFs. You can read the evidence here.

4. 5G Danger: 5G Promotes Deep EMF Penetration

The main reason why cell or mobile phones are more dangerous for children than adults (apart from the fact that radiation absorption is cumulative over a lifetime) is due to EMF penetration.
Dr. Pall writes:
“The industry has also made claims that more conventional microwave frequency EMFs are limited in effect to the outer 1 cm of the body. We know that is not true, however because of the effects deep in the human brain, on the heart and on hormone systems. Perhaps the most important two studies demonstrating effects deep within the body are the studies of Professor Hässig and his colleagues in Switzerland on cataract formation in newborn calves. These two studies clearly show that when pregnant cows are grazing near mobile phone base stations (also called cell phone towers), the calves are born with very greatly increased incidences of cataracts.”
Hässig wrote in his 2009 study:
“Of 253 calves, 79 (32%) had various degrees of nuclear cataract, but only 9 (3.6%) calves had severe nuclear cataract. Results demonstrate a relation between the location of veals calves with nuclear cataracts in the first trimester of gestation and the strength of antennas. The number of antennas within 100 to 199 meters was associated with oxidative stress and there was an association between oxidative stress and the distance to the nearest MPBS (Mobile Phone Base Station).”

5. 5G Danger: 5G is a Weapons System Disguised as a Consumer Convenience

Mark Steele has been very outspoken against 5G and has now been widely interviewed, including by Project Camelot and also by Sacha Stone in his documentary 5G Apocalypse: The Extinction Event. Steele claims that although widespread reports state that 5G is operating in the 24-100 GHz range, it is actually sub-gigahertz (meaning under the GHz threshold, so still measured in MHz). He says 5G is a weapons system like long-range radar, phased array radar and directed energy (DEW was used in 9/11 and various fires like the Paradise fires). He claims that when you examine 5G hardware, it has a dielectric lens which is proof it is a weapons system. Autonomous vehicles can use 5G to shine in mirrors of other drivers (which is so strong and damaging it is equivalent to assault). Mark talks about how 5G is powerful enough to kill babies in wombs. He states:
“5G is a weapons system, nothing more, nothing less. It’s got nothing to do with telecommunications for humans. 5G is a machine to machine connection for autonomous vehicles.”

6. 5G Danger: LA Firefighters Develop Ailments After Being Too Close to Towers

In this video a 25 year veteran firefighter from Los Angeles compares cell towers to cigarettes. He calls for a stop to the cell/mobile phone base stations being built on or near fire stations. Firefighters are not the only ones suffering the effects; it was reported that hundreds of birds fell from the sky in the Netherlands during a 5G test.

7. 5G Danger: Same Frequencies as used for Crowd Dispersal

5G purportedly uses millimeter wave (MMW) frequencies, so called because the frequencies are so high (in the 24-100 GHz range). Since 1 GHz = 1 billion GHz, we are talking about frequencies with very very short wavelength (the distance between the peak of one wave and the next). The distances are so tiny they are measured in millimeters, hence the term millimeter wave. These are the exact same frequencies used by the military for their non-lethal weapons such as Active Denial Systems for crowd dispersal. These weapons have the capacity to cause tremendous injury. Dr. Paul Ben-Ishai said, “If you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.”

8. 5G Danger: Mutagenic (Causing DNA Damage) and Carcinogenic (Causing Cancer)?

The MMW frequencies of 5G cause mitochondrial DNA damage – which is then passed down generations. 5G is mutagenic. These mutations are inherited by the next generation! This has grave implications for genetic purity. How many people are thinking about this when they can’t stop looking at their screens? This website lists many studies showing the mitochondrial damage that occurs after exposure to EMF radiation.
With mutagenesis usually comes carcinogenesis. In other words, once something is powerful and dangerous enough to cause DNA damage, chances are high it will lead to cancer. Mark Steele says 5G is a class 1 carcinogen, although the WHO (World Health Organization) very conservatively classifies cell phone towers as a class 2b possible carcinogen. It’s important to note, however, that the WHO is an agency of the UN which was set up by the Rockefellers, an illustrious NWO Illuminati family who plan to use the UN as a vehicle to usher in a One World Government.
5G is being rushed out without the proper safety testing done, so we don’t have much data on how 5G specifically causes cancer, but there is an abundance of evidence showing how 2G, 3G and 4G EMFs are implicated in many kinds of cancer, including brain cancer. This website has a good collection of the many studies done.

9. 5G Danger: Phased Array Densification

5G requires significantly more transmitters or broadcasters than earlier generations. It is a plan of massive infrastructure creation, with stations, towers and bases planned to be put almost everywhere, including in the heart of residential neighborhoods. The effects of this kind of densification could be disastrous.
5G is powerful enough to 3D map the inside of your home and other buildings. Mark Steele specifically highlights the 868 MHz frequency, previously used for battlefield interrogations and which can travel with ease through bricks and concrete. He claims this frequency can single out specific people … interesting given all the electronic harassment and gang stalking which occurs against TIs (Targeted Individuals).
5G infrastructure will consist of small phased array antennas shooting out radiation at their targets like a bullet. The rays of microwaves they produce will be strong enough to pass through walls and human bodies. We will be blanketed with this 24/7/365, and what’s worse, the coverage area is slated to be broader than the current 4G, eventually encompassing every square inch of Earth.

10. 5G Danger: Killing All the Insects?

Insects, birds and children are the most vulnerable to 5G due to their body size. Claire Edwards is a former UN staff editor who brought the EMF/5G issue to their attention of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. She stated in an anti-5G rally speech in Stockholm:
“It’s interesting to note that in the last 20 years we have lost 80% of our insects. And if we get 5G, we’re going to lose 100% of our insects.  When the insects go, we go too.”
Both insects and 5G need antennas: insects use them, among other things, in their sense of smell, while 5G uses them to propagate waves. Not surprisingly, insects are sensitive to 5G EMF waves; this recent study showed that insects exposed to 5G radiation experienced an increase in their body temperature.
“Studies have shown that the frequencies used by 5G increase the body temperature of insects. This phenomenon was not observed with 4G or WiFi.”
“Future wavelengths of the electromagnetic fields used for the wireless telecommunication systems will decrease and become comparable to the body size of insects and therefore, the absorption of RF-EMFs in insects is expected to increase.”

11. 5G Danger: Space-Based 5G

5G is planned to be an inescapable grid – with plans afoot to beam it down from space! This ties into the Space Fence agenda as I discussed in my article Space Fence: Connecting the Surveillance and Transhumanist Agendas. The organization International Appeal Stop 5G on Earth and in Space writes:
“At least five companies are proposing to provide 5G from space from a combined 20,000 satellites in low- and medium-Earth orbit that will blanket the Earth with powerful, focused, steerable beams. Each satellite will emit millimetre waves with an effective radiated power of up to 5 million watts from thousands of antennas arranged in a phased array.”
It is vital to understand the bigger picture of the grand conspiracy here. All these disruptive and hazardous technologies – 5G, wi-fi, wireless radiation, HAARP, ionospheric heating, geoengineering, GMOs, etc. – are going to be woven into one giant integrated system of surveillance, command and control. Just as one small example, geoengineering involves the spraying of chemtrails loaded with metal particulates – which 5G can use.

12. 5G Danger: Re-Radiation Inside the Body

Way back in 2002, RF researcher Arthur Firstenberg published an analysis of 5G long before the technology was approved. He explained how, due to 5G EM pulses being extremely short and delivered in bursts, they actually replicateinside the body – and end up creating tiny new 5G antennas internally. Firstenberg wrote:
“… when extremely short electromagnetic pulses enter the body, something else happens: the moving charges themselves become little antennas that re-radiate the electromagnetic field and send it deeper into the body …”
“These re-radiated waves are called Brillouin precursors … They become significant when either the power or the phase of the wave changes rapidly enough … This means that the reassurance we are being given – that these millimeter waves are too short to penetrate far into the body – is not true.”
This echoes a previous point made – that 5G penetration is a serious danger.

13. 5G Danger: Insurance Companies Refuse to Underwrite Big Wireless. What Do They Know?

Insurance companies (the most famous of which is Lloyds of London) have made headlines by refusing to insure Big Wireless (the telecommunication corporate conglomerate) against wi-fi and 5G-related illnesses and claims:
“Well, Lloyd’s November 2010 Risk Assessment Team’s Report gives us a solid clue: the report compares these wireless technologies with asbestos, in that the early research on asbestos was “inconclusive” and only later did it become obvious to anyone paying attention that asbestos causes cancer. Keep in mind that Lloyd’s Risk Assessment study of wi-fi was published over 8 [now 9 – Ed.] years ago. Even back then, however, their Risk Assessment Team was smart enough to realize that new evidence just might emerge showing that the various wi-fi frequencies do cause illness.”

Conclusion: 5G Grid Part of Larger Command, Control, Surveillance and AI Agenda

5G is qualitatively and quantitatively different to 4G. It is much more than just the next step up from 4G. 5G will not only beam tens to hundreds times more radiation than 4G, but the introduction of MMW technology means a whole new host of hazards. History repeats itself. Just like it took some time for real science to catch up with tobacco/cigarettes, and just like it took some time for real science to catch up with the monstrosity that are GMOs (now rebranded as BioEngineered Foods), so too will real science catch up with 5G. In the meantime, you can expect all sorts of junk science to be put forth to justify it, including misdirections and distractions like only focusing on the thermal effects of wireless (and ignoring the evidence of dangerous non-thermal effects).
Ultimately, 5G is part of the NWO agenda to set up a giant, inescapable command and control grid that eliminates all privacy and allows the manipulators to surveil every single person on the planet all the time. If there was ever a time for activists to step up in the name of freedom, truth, health, privacy and sovereignty, now is the time.

What Can Apple Cider Vinegar Do for You? ~ Dr. Joseph Mercola

What Can Apple Cider Vinegar Do for You?

By Dr. Joseph Mercola,

Contributing writer for Wake Up World.

June 12, 2019. 

 

Originally published at mercola.com and reproduced here with permission.
If you have a bottle of apple cider vinegar in your pantry, you very likely know how valuable this particular staple is to your health. If you are not yet familiar with the many beneficial uses of this versatile and economical home remedy, you may be interested to know it has been used successfully to treat conditions ranging from blood sugar and weight loss to acid reflux and upset stomach. Check out these nine reasons why you should keep a bottle of apple cider vinegar on hand.
 

How Is Apple Cider Vinegar Made?

Apple cider vinegar is an enzyme- and probiotic-rich fermented food. As the name suggests, it is made from apples, which are allowed to ferment. Making unpasteurized apple cider vinegar follows a process similar to the one used for making other homemade fermented brews, such as kombucha. Below is a high-level overview of a more detailed “how to” process for making homemade apple cider vinegar.1
In the first step of the process, sugar is dissolved in filtered water that is then poured over a variety of coarsely chopped apples. This mixture is allowed to set at room temperature for one to two weeks until bubbles begin to appear as the sugar ferments into alcohol. (Because the sugars are digested through the fermentation process, apple cider vinegar contains very little sugar and carbohydrates, making it a very attractive food from a dietary standpoint.)
During the second step of the process, the apples are strained out and the liquid is maintained, again at room temperature, for an additional three to four weeks. At this time, the alcohol is transforming into vinegar through the action of the acetic acid bacteria — this particular acid gives vinegar its distinctive sour tang. As the bacteria do their job, a small amount of sediment will appear on the bottom of the container and the “mother” culture will form on top, which is a colony of beneficial bacteria.
In fact, you can quickly recognize organic, raw, unfiltered, unprocessed apple cider vinegar by the distinctive presence of the mother. It appears as dark, strand-like chains of cloudy bacterial foam that are actually protein enzyme molecules and probiotic bacteria. Mother can only exist in vinegar that is not pasteurized or filtered, which means you will not find it in most types of vinegar sold at the grocery store.

Nutritional Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

While at least one source2 suggests apple cider vinegar may contain the same nutrient levels as apples, such as vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium and potassium, there is little evidence to support this assertion, particularly for pasteurized varieties. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Nutrient Database3 entry for apple cider vinegar is virtually blank and features data for calories per serving and sodium only.
Some assert unpasteurized, unfiltered varieties of apple cider vinegar, such as you’d make at home, do retain some of the beneficial nutrients present in apples. Even so, it’s the acetic acid4 — a powerful antimicrobial — and to a lesser extent, the malic acid in apple cider vinegar that act on your body in powerful, health-benefiting ways.
Apple cider vinegar also contains citric, formic, lactic and succinic acids, as well as antioxidantssuch as caffeic acid, catechin, chlorogenic acid, epicatechin and gallic acid, which fight free radicals that cause oxidative stress and promote inflammation. Following are nine suggested benefits of apple cider vinegar.5,6

 Aids in Weight Loss

Research published in the journal Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry in 2009 indicates apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight and shed body fat.7 In this study, 144 obese Japanese adults consumed either 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 2 tablespoons of vinegar or a placebo drink every day for 12 weeks. Other than restricted alcohol consumption, the participants were free to maintain their usual diet and activity levels.
As shown in the table below, consumption of 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar added to a beverage yielded a positive effect on weight loss and the three other measures of health that were tracked. Consuming 2 tablespoons of vinegar produced the most benefits.
  Vinegar (1 tablespoon) Vinegar (2 tablespoons) Placebo
WEIGHT CHANGE -2.6 pounds -3.7 pounds +0.9 pounds
DECREASE IN BODY FAT PERCENTAGE 0.7 percent 0.9 percent  
DECREASE IN WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE 0.5 inches 0.75 inches  
DECREASE IN TRIGLYCERIDES 26 percent 26 percent  
The study authors concluded, “[D]aily intake of vinegar might be useful in the prevention of metabolic syndrome by reducing obesity.”8 The weight loss is thought to be influenced by the acetic acid in vinegar, which is believed to suppress your appetite and increase your metabolism, as well as reduce water retention.9 Scientists also theorize apple cider vinegar interferes with your body’s digestion of starch, resulting in fewer calories entering your bloodstream.

5D Shift: Exposing the Myth of the “Critical Mass” Ascension ~ Open

5D Shift: Exposing the Myth of the “Critical Mass” Ascension.

By Open

Contributing writer for Wake Up World.

June 10th, 2019. 

 

 

 

Originally published at www.openhandweb.org and reproduced here with permission.
It’s fine that we have distortion in our philosophy. Everything is a perspective, there are no absolutes in relativistic reality. However, what can be severely limiting and derailing, is where a myth becomes an accepted norm within the group consciousness. Particularly one that might prevent people from empowering themselves by following their own path, their own trajectory, and in their own time. Such, I maintain, is the illusion of the idea that, ‘humanity will ascend when there is a critical mass of people to cause a collective shift into the New Paradigm’. The history of previous shifts through the aeons does NOT bear witness to this. So how do Shifts really work?
I should begin by saying, just like anyone else, I am only able to share a perspective on truth, not the ABSOLUTE truth, because that can only be experienced. However, I do call on a good deal of experience from similar shifts in other constellations. I invite you to keep an open mind and heart and find your own truth in relation to what I am about to share.

The Absolute Miracle of Relativity, of Life!

Ever since I’ve been exploring and sharing the current Shift phenomenon here on Earth, I’ve frequently come across, what seems to be, a widely held view that Humanity’s Ascension will happen all together, and when there is a ‘critical mass’ of consciousness to ‘swing the balance’ and ‘raise collective vibration’ into the New Paradigm. And that this will happen due to some major “Event”, such as plasma irradiation from the sun or the Pole Shift or the like. There are plenty of solid reasons why this is a myth, and I’ve personally witnessed in spiritual work how it derails and limits people. Not to say that these events won’t have essential roles to play in The Shift, I believe they will. Just not in the way they’re often spoken of in the spiritual mainstream.
For me, it all boils down to a basic phenomenon of the Universe, which is Realisation and Actualisation of The Self. Life appeared the moment that the singularity exploded into relativity of consciousness – ‘this’ and ‘that’, as waves of awareness that simply arose. This inevitable emergence (given the nature of infinite time, because there is no time) then cascaded outwards as the big bang and progressively condensed into the vast myriad of form we now witness in the known Universe. An absolute miracle!
Time is an illusion, because all is happening in one moment of now. The whole space-time-continuummoves together, which is why you can still have trajectory.  It’s why there is still a previous configuration of the entirety, which we call ‘the past’, and a future configuration that we are moving into – which we can call ‘future landing now’. It means you can get on the bus at point A, travel to work, and at a given amount of ‘time’ later, reasonably expect to be sitting at your desk. So the whole Universe is moving together and yet reconfiguring and morphing in the moment.

The Dynamic of Light and Dark

Within this dynamic ‘the light’, which we may call ‘Unity Consciousness‘ (the memory of the original condition of Oneness) is interweaving through the ‘dark’, what we might call ‘Separation Consciousness’ (‘light and dark are contained within parentheses so as to invite non judgment or polarity causing the limitation of identification with either). Collectively, this dynamic has taken the form of the Universal Torus of interweaving Unity and Separation consciousness. By carefully witnessing the dynamic in consciousness, within, you can clearly see there are places where the light gets stuck within the separation, which thereby causes a dimming – a ‘tightness’ – resulting in the sense of disconnect from The One, from the Source, what we might call ‘the original condition of oneness’.
These distortions or ‘blind spots’ create polarity by bending space time around them. Reality is created this way around the exploration of such ‘karma’. And souls as waves of light are drawn into the density by the Universal Law of Attraction in order to bring deeper awareness into the distortion. Thus, ‘shining the light’ unravels the distortion. But actually, what this really means, is that souls are drawn by their own unconsciousness, their own karma, which mirrors a blind spot contained within the collective karmic construct. By working their way through, and unravelling aligned truth within the distortion, light is now infused through that previously dim spot in consciousness.

All At Different Places of Realisation

Importantly all souls are all at different points in their journey – in their journey of remembering and realisation. Some will have been born very early (an earlier form) in the cascading universal dynamic. Others much later (a later form of the space time continuum). Some will have already worked through deep complexity of the relativistic dynamic, others will be reaching the point where they have become basically ‘awake‘. So throughout history you get souls that clearly stand out from the collective in terms of their awakeness, such as the Buddha, or Jesus for example (not to mention plenty of others). It is not that they are any more special than anyone else, simply that they have travelled through enough experience through the space-time-continuum to be able to shed light on what’s taking place around them, and others resonate with what they feel emanting from them.
And whichever ‘master’ you care to consider, they are all at unique points on their journey and all expressing uniquely, based on their own experience. Because each is at a different stage in their evolution. And this leads to the main point of my article:
The soul is on a progressive journey of realisation and actualisation of The One. Each is at a different stage of that emergence. Whilst we might come together into a collective construct, each one of us is in unique circumstances of their making with unique karma to unravel through. If one soul could realise your journey for you, if your journey was identical to the journey of another, then by the Law of Attraction, both souls would merge into one another and become one, with no separation. Life can only be sustained by the difference, by relativity, no matter how subtle. What this means is that a soul can only shift vibration into another vibrational frequency when it is ready to, when it has journied and realised enough to sustain the higher vibration.
Another soul may be able to reflect a resonant light, or particular collective circumstances may cause plenty to start activating, but each soul is embarked on a unique journey. Each soul is learning and evolving at its own speed. If another soul could realise for you, then that negates your own journey, your own reason for being. You simply wouldn’t exist!

Forging the Soul

For anyone whose been involved in intensive spiritual work, they will surely tell you that the journey is challenging and mysterious. That each step is crafted through the deep exploration and inquiry of consciousness. That true progress can often be a nitty gritty, painstaking phenomenon, of uncovering the veils of distortion through challenging circumstances and thereby progressively forging the soul. This is the majesty of self realisation. You determine your unique sovereignty by forging the soul in the crucible of life. To suggest that the shift by those around you can suddenly negate all of this painstaking work, all of this crafting and honing, all of this personal karma, all of this dedication, is not only naive, but also dishonouring of the journey of realisation that each soul is weaving.
How would the salmon ever become the miracle that it is, without its own majestic forging up the river of life, back to the source of its own essence?
What we can say however, is that one ‘salmon’ will inspire another. When Roger Bannister did the unthinkable in the 1950s and broke the 4 minute mile, it precipitated a plethora of others to do the same in the years that followed. BUT, each still had to do the work, still put in the miles, still forge muscles, expand heart and lung capacity in order to achieve the same. So it precipitated a wave of people who inspired each other. Collective events that inspire and resonate soul can do that, yes. But each person still has to do the necessary work.

A Clear Point of Divergence Has Begun

To me, what clearly defines our Ascension right now, is that a wave of people who have a sense of what is unfolding, can feel the inner calling driving them forwards into the light, who are prepared to put in the daily commitment of work to forge sovereignty of soul. In my observation, they are doing so because they realise the urgency of the current situation and the majesty of what is possible. At these times of great challenge and change, I ask you, what else is there truly worthwhile to do?
So what of some great ‘event’, such as the Pole Shift or Powerful Solar Transformation?
When the collective (those who are truly exploring) gets wind of the potential for dramatic change to our reality, then they pick up the impetus, they pick up the calling and motivation. As other ‘salmon’ begin the journey back to the source, so it inspires them to do the same. Hence you get a wave of souls moving forwards approximately ‘together’. And since there will be similar karmic lessons common to all, then people will be able to resonate amongst each other. And this is wonderful, it fosters tremendous sense of community and belonging – of the great adventure. BUT, nevertheless, each must work to run the ‘4 minute mile’ in their own unique way, by forging the ‘muscles’ in their own ‘legs’.
Do not be fooled, no one else, nor any particular ‘event’, can do that for you. Although yes, I agree, a strong wave of resonance can animate the soul and inspire other people around you.
Right now what I witness happening out their in society is the beginnings of a divergence. As I shared in my recent article about the Revelations of the Hopi Prophecy, there is clearly a vast body of people either unconsciously, or with a degree of awareness, heading into a high tech, ‘SMART’, synthetic reality. You can witness this progressively enfolding plenty around you, whether at the bus stop, the restaurant, at work, home, and even in the deepest countryside. Then there are others who see past the illusion of this mental captivation; that the smoke and mirrors point not to greater freedom of choice, but greater channeling and confinement – a swallowing of sovereignty.

Progressive Levels of Awakening

However, let’s also be clear about ‘awakening’. Awakening to the illusion of the matrix is NOT the same as awakening to the soul. And awakening to the soul, is NOT the same as following the soul. In other words, as Openhand shared in the 5GATEWAYS film, there are progressive levels of awakening. It is my clear contention that there are plenty out there ‘pointing at the moon’, but not digging deep enough within, to discover true ‘heaven’. I call the phenomenon because there’s a tremendous amount of distraction pointing to solutions ‘out there’ or fixing the external, when the causality is on the internal. Waiting for the ‘cabal’ to fall for example ‘so that freedom may truly happen’. Or waiting for ET disclosure ‘out there’, when the real influences are happening inside within the unconscious shadows.
So we’ve reached a determination point, a divergence is beginning to happen. As spiritually incorrect as this may seem for me to call it, nevertheless, it’s the truth that I clearly witness. A wave of souls is clearly beginning to move – I can feel it all around me in the ether. And I witness it in the small groups of quietly dedicated and committed people around the world. It’s happening beyond the hype, the surface fizz, the glitz and the glamour. What do you honestly witness?

Let’s Inspire and Motivate Each Other

My calling is for us to inspire each other, yes. Let us reflect the circumstances of our own journey so others may gain resonance for theirs. Let us engage in community and inspire each other in the great adventure. But at the same time, remember, this is a journey of realisation of your own unique soul. Only you can decide to take the steps necessary. Only you can shine the light through your particular circumstances in your own unique way. Only you can find the grace and the grit to push through the necessary layers that are yours alone.
That is your blessing. Your particular miracle that only you can realise. It’s what gives each meaning and purpose. Let us celebrate in the phenomenal diversity of life, this majesty created by the relativity, by our uniqueness, and inspire those to the left and right of you. Onwards and upwards!
“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.  And there are things to be considered . . .
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time!”
  “There is a river flowing now very fast.  It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.  They will try to hold on to the shore.   They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.
    “Know the river has its destination.  The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.   And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.  At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves.  For the moment that we do,  our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
   “The time for the lone wolf is over.  Gather yourselves!  Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary.  All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. 
   “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

Big Dreams or Big Disappointments? Astrology Forecast 9/16th June 2019 ~ Lorna Bevan

Big Dreams or Big Disappointments?

 Astrology Forecast June 9th – June 16th 2019.

By Lorna Bevan

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

June 9th, 2019. 

 
 

Originally published at hareinthemoonastrology.co.uk and reproduced here with permission.
Without sugar coating it, the astrological weather is stormy. For many, it is going to be a week of challenges, roadblocks and delays. For others, opportunities to dream large, to be extra creative and to make a personal breakthrough. It all depends on which time-line you’ve chosen. The seismic window to Monday June 17th’s doozy of a Full Moon opens on Thursday, suggesting that feelings of pressure and stress will build.
 
 
 
 
There are multiple Sun/Mercury/Mars contacts with Neptune/Pluto/Saturn and the Nodes of Fate, so events will play out in your personal life as well as in the collective. The real volatility arises from both Mars and Mercury – both at maximum impact – conjuncting the Node of Fate and opposing Saturn/Pluto/karmic South Node of Fate right on the midpoint of the July 2 + 16th eclipses. This is a preview of coming “attractions” so pay attention to the issues that arise for you – they will intensify in the next 3 weeks to the eclipses.
In Monday’s chart there are two big aspect patterns. The Sun forms a Grand Cross with Jupiter, Neptune and the Moon as Venus/Moon/Pluto dance together in a flowing Grand Trine. Translated, it suggests that if you listen to your own guidance, refuse to sit and watch the old world burn and take action towards a better future, you will be surprised at the insights, downloads and inspiration you receive.

Chandra Symbol for Gemini 19:

Strange Creatures peeking Out from behind Trees
“Surprises, destiny shocks, stunning events present a way to evolve rapidly for the daring and the wild. Whatever you assume and prepare for, the moment shall be different. Nothing is meant to be straightforward here. Your greater self finds ways to get at your little self who wants to hide in safe places, when instead a much larger destiny is in the works–which insists upon knocking at your door, preferably a back door or side door, to jump right in, scare the living daylights out of you, and wake you up for the next scintillating adventure along a vast and unlimited spectrum.” From Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale.

Aries Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

As a sign whose personal ruler is Mars, you know all about warrior spirit. However, this week when you have to negotiate a potential minefield, you are better off taking avoiding action rather than going for confrontation. With Mars and Mercury challenging Saturn and Pluto across the work/life axis of your chart on a sensitive eclipse point, something’s got to give. You may hear news connected with your career or events at home may upset your plans and need your attention. Whatever arises, it’s reality check time and you can’t hide your head in the sand. Frame it as an opportunity to devise a more balanced and authentic life, rather than a derailment.
A calculated retreat is better than burning bridges.

Taurus Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

With the most confrontative astrology playing out across your angle of communication, expect setbacks, delays or reversals to derail your plans. Others will be challenging, slow to respond or just plain awkward. However, knowing that this will peak at June 17th’s Full Moon and be sorted by July 2nd’s eclipse ,gives you the perspective you need to stay calm, centred and reasonable. Your finances are supported by the Sun, Venus and Jupiter so if an unwelcome reality check arrives, make the necessary changes then move forward to new opportunities. There are ways to increase your income streams available but first you have to be open for business
As Michelle Obama said:” When they go low, you go high”.

Gemini Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

The good news is that Venus moves into Gemini, drawing others towards you and generally smoothing your path. This is all to the good as your ruler Mercury in cahoots with Mars is facing off with hardnosed Saturn and Pluto in your financial zone. Given that they are right on the sensitive midpoint of July’s eclipses and this is a week building to a Full Moon, pay attention to any challenges to do with money, deal with them immediately and keep a close eye on the bottom line. The Sun aligned with expansive Jupiter may be persuading to spend, spend, spend but right now, that’s definitely not a good idea.
Money represents choices and freedom so grow it instead of scattering it.

Cancer Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

Of all the signs, apart from Capricorn, you are feeling the winds of change blowing most strongly. Not only are we in a week building to a doozy of a Full Moon but Mars and Mercury are in Cancer-both at maximum disruptive impact- and are at odds with reality planets Saturn and Pluto. Knowing this in advance, if you expect others to be difficult, awkward or challenging you’ll be able to draw on your inner resources of calmness amidst the storm and tell yourself this is just a blip on the radar. The upside of this astrology is the gift of rocket fuelled momentum and motivation to follow your own agenda wherever it leads.
You are the sky, everything else is just weather.

Leo Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

Remember the saying:” It’s not what happens, but how you respond”? Well it’s a week to make it your mantra. With Mercury and Mars at odds with reality planets Saturn and Pluto, something’s got to give. In your case, friends, allies and groups may be facing challenges of their own and have little time for yours. If so, cut both them and you some slack and offer your input and support. Keep looking at what is working and do more of it. With all this activity happening in your hidden 12th House, there is some important information yet to emerge, probably at the July 2 and 16th eclipses. When it does, it will make all the difference.
Take nothing personally.

Virgo Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

Of all the signs, you have the greatest planetary support this week. A Grand Cross across fellow mutable signs is activating all 4 angles of your solar chart. With the Sun in your career zone aligned with expansive Jupiter and limitless Neptune, all your relationships-personal and professional- are forefront and centre stage. No matter what challenges arise, no matter how stressed or difficult some people seem to be, offer your support, smooth things over and watch as your generosity comes back to you tenfold .Next Monday’s Full Moon will end a long phase of relationship disappointments so keep your eyes on where you want to go, not on where you have been.
Think of the Dalai Lama’s words:” My religion is kindness”.

Libra Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

With all four angles-the support structures-of your chart under pressure this week, you may feel like taking off and leaving it all behind. And that’s the best possible thing you could do, even if it’s just grabbing some brief time out or planning an exciting trip .You have the backing of the Sun lighting up your zone of far horizons with expansive Jupiter, nudging you to think bigger, create a wider platform and see beyond the confines of your comfort zone. And when you can see the forest for the trees, you can far more easily put any challenges, delays or disruptions into perspective. In the last couple of years, you’ve been focused on firefighting, now it’s time to concentrate on creating a better, more satisfying future.
Let yourself of the hook and treat yourself gently.

Scorpio Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

Under such challenging astrology, you need to know your priorities and stick to them, instead of allowing yourself to be derailed by other people’s agendas. For you as a Scorpio, from now until after July’s eclipses, the focus needs to be on your finances, your resources and your security. Keep in mind that we are heading towards a Full Moon on Monday July 17th and that the seismic window opens on Thursday. Others will be difficult, awkward or just plain immovable and that includes partners of all kinds and longstanding contracts. If you receive a reality check, take it on board straightaway and change direction. Sun and Jupiter could either deliver you a money gift or encourage you to spend, spend, spend.
Keep your eyes on the prize.

Sagittarius Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

For you as a Sagittarian, June is one of the most pivotal months of 2019.This means that you need to be alert for both opportunity and derailment. With your expansive ruler Jupiter in your own sign opposite the Sun and aligned with slippery Neptune, you might be tempted to go too far or over the top in your enthusiasm for one exciting new project. Take a step back and make sure that those closest to you feel involved, loved and part of your journey. When roadblocks, challenges or reality checks arrive this week in the build up to a tense Full Moon, keep calm and tell yourself silence is better than hoof in mouth syndrome.
A deep inbreath.

Capricorn Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

Both June and July are set to be pivotal months for solar Capricorns. Knowing this should enable you to play a long game, instead of getting caught up in each event as it happens. Opposing reality planets Saturn and Pluto in your own sign are Mercury and Mars-both at maximum impact. Not only that but they are right on the hyper-sensitive midpoint of the Cancer/Capricorn eclipses arriving in less than three weeks and in the volatile seismic window of June 17th’s Full Moon. This makes relationships of all kinds-personal and professional-more challenging than usual. Others with their own agenda may be resistant, deliberately awkward or challenging. Rather than confront them, leave them to their own devices and stick to your plans. This is a blip on the radar, not a total derailment.
A bigger perspective.

Aquarius Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

You might find it difficult to focus on the positive this week, especially as people around you may be challenging, volatile or facing their own problems. The trick is not to take any of it personally and see it as a period of unsettled planetary weather. Your angle of retreat and adaptation is feeling the strain as Mercury and Mars battle it out with Saturn and Pluto. This is a time to fix what can be fixed and surrender to what you can’t control. Rather than keeping on keeping on and then burning out, make some beneficial changes to your health and wellbeing routines, building in more downtime and lots more rest. Be extra kind and gentle with yourself-the world won’t grind to a halt if you stop pushing yourself.
Rebalancing mind, body and soul.

Pisces Week Ahead Forecast: June 9-16, 2019

June -especially this week and next-is tough going for everyone. Keep that in mind if you’re feeling off colour, drained or demoralised. This is a week when the seismic window opens ahead of a doozy of a Full Moon next Monday 17th right at the base of your chart. On top of that, Mercury and Mars are at odds with heavy hitters Saturn and Pluto, giving you a preview of next month’s eclipse issues. Jupiter is halfway through his trip through your career zone, so by now you should have proof of being either perfectly on track or wildly off course. Channel these alignments by taking a long hard look at your trajectory and making any course corrections that are needed.
Remove your rose- tinted glasses.
 
Make sure your satnav, map or inner compass is working well.

The Energy of the Divine Masculine ~ Ethan Indigo Smith

The Energy of the Divine Masculine.

By Ethan Indigo Smith.

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

June 6th, 2019
 
.
 



Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.” ~The Kybalion
You’ve probably heard of the divine feminine, but what do you know about the divine masculine?
Many people can conceptualize the idea of toxic masculinity as opposed to divine masculinity and most are against its perversions, but understanding how to head towards divine masculinity is a much harder concept to grasp.
To get to grips with the concept let’s start by defining the energy of masculinity and femininity in contrast. The philosophy of the Duality of Polarity assists in revealing mutual oppositional energies of the feminine and masculine. Understanding the primal energies to simplify enabling feminine and masculine concepts to emerge clearly, unhindered by national, traditional, and even sexual constructs. We are made up of feminine and masculine energy formed in contrast of our physical female or male bodies, and via our inner anima and animus natures.
The Geometry of Energy effectively illustrates the divine feminine and the divine masculine energies. The four dimensions of geometry, when applied to measuring energies, can greatly aid our understanding of the internal, spiritual and psychological world. The four dimensions of geometry are points, lines, planes, and solids. Points and lines symbolize linear of masculine energy, whereas planes and solids symbolize the curvature of feminine energy.
The energy of the divine feminine is both receptive and creative.  
The energy of the divine masculine is both reflective and projective.
There is creativity in masculinity just as there is reflectivity in femininity. The idea of inner feminine in man and inner masculine in woman is commonly understood as the anima and animus; essentially defined as inner nature containing elements of mutually dependent opposites. The Yin Yang illustrates this with the circles in the swirls.
 “The Dao is also the way in the following sense – nothing exists except as a relation with other similarly postulated ideas. Nothing can be known in itself, but only as one of the participants in a series of events.” ~A. Crowley
The Dao is made up of feminine and masculine energies, each codependent, mutually arising within the other, and each potentiating the each other. The story of one without the other is fruitless and lacking. The same goes for the story of individuals seeking self-development and divinity as opposed to basic modality. If we want to truly achieve our potential, we need this combination and contrast of energies.

Contrasting the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine

The divine feminine, although as rare a character in the world as the divine masculine, is better understood than the divine masculine.  The feminine energy is caring in an all-encompassing manner, receptive to all, adopting and taking in all energy. The divine feminine embraces everything in a caring, receptive, motherly circle and is capable of creating a whole other being.
The divine masculine on the other hand embodies reflective and projective energies. Instead of being receptive to energy the divine masculine reflects it, like a shield or a mirror. Instead of being creative of volume onto itself the divine masculine is projective of will, projecting  energy like a sword with a singular focus on the task at hand.

The Difference Between the Divine Masculine and the Perverse Masculine

The divine masculine idea is of a peaceful warrior. This archetype has led to the masculine perversion where warriors are turned into institutionalized soldiers, where the righteousness of self-defense is obscured by war-minded perversions and abusive behavior. This perversion of masculine will is so commonly accepted as normal that  women seeking equality among men will do so by adopting this militaristic mode of behavior.  Consider the saying  ‘all is fair in love and war.’
So, what can we do to draw out the divine masculine and to inhibit expression of the perverted masculine?
There is an expression in martial arts that embodies the divine masculine or at least presents a notion or rule that is preventative of the perverted masculine. The notion is to never attack in anger.
If we think about this, we can see that the difference between the divine masculine and the perverse masculine is the difference between a martial artist and a soldier. The most basic principle of martial arts is to never attack firstwhereas a soldier is paid to follow orders, including the order to attack first. The divine masculine differs from the perverse masculine by being helpful or at the very least in not hindering.
Basic and perverse masculinity clashes – with everything. The reflective energy of mirrors however reveals the potential of reflective masculine energy. Whatever is shown in the mirror is shined directly back. If the divine masculine is shown quality and caring energy it is reflected in return. If the divine masculine is attacked, with aikido like redirection, the attack is reflected and redirected. If two or more mirrors are reflecting quality, helpful projected energy, then the reflections magnify.
The divine masculine also projects energy, as a direct manifestation of will into the collective.  The divine feminine is creative of whole other beings but the divine masculine wills its own being. Of course, the creation of the divine feminine requires at least the energy of the masculine. In the same manner the projection of the divine masculine also requires aspects of the divine feminine, namely the circular inclusion of care and caring.
These energies are theoretic but have real life application as a helpful self-understanding tool. If at any given moment you are unsure as to what action would embody divinity, simply seek to act with care.  Self-defense and the defense of others requires care whereas bullying and attacking contain no care. The more you push forward compassion and care the more your divinity unfolds.
If you are a man, think about adding receptivity and creativity to your form and flow to engage balance. If you are a woman, contemplate adding reflectivity and projectivity to your own form and flow.
Above all, remember: the divine masculine never attacks first.
“In Aikido we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally. Let attackers come any way they like and then blend with them. Never chase after opponents. Redirect each attack and get firmly behind it.” ~Morihei Ueshiba

Mind at the Centre – The Radical Liberation of My Mental World ~ Michael Grosso.

Mind at the Centre. 

The Radical Liberation of My Mental World.

By Michael Grosso  

Guest Writer for Wake Up World.

June 1st, 2019. 

 

 

 

It is a curious fact that we have successfully used our minds to penetrate profound secrets of the physical universe, but when it comes to grasping the nature of our minds, we are baffled. This is the famous mind-body problem, the ‘hard’ problem being to account for our consciousness, which is utterly unlike anything physical. The mind, it seems, has a hard time trying to understand itself.
In this essay, I describe how I evolved my view of the subject, which is deeply at odds with mainstream physicalism. Without putting a label on my view, there were two crucial steps I took, theoretical and empirical.


First, a comment on the word empirical – it comes from a Greek verb that means ‘experience’, but the modern trend has been to use it only for sense experience, which is too narrow. All kinds of experience are possible, including dreams, out-of-body states, hallucinations, visionary trances – the whole range of reported mental experiences.
Certain experiences I had were decisive in helping me form my concept of mind. Very few people are concerned with trying to understand the nature of their own minds; we all use our minds constantly but rarely reflectively. This shouldn’t surprise us. Our brains evolved to help us survive and replicate in a material world. To wonder too much at the mysteries of being could be extremely hazardous. To do so represents a study called philosophy of mind, one of a subset of problems that come under the heading of metaphysics.
The question about the nature of our minds is not only fundamental but riddled with controversy. Nor is the topic inconsequential, as I suggest in my conclusion. But here is the problem – in an age of advanced physical science, a certain default conception of mind has jelled into a state of uncritical acceptance. Although people constantly use mental terminology – the problem is on my mind, I dreamt of my dead aunt, I remember the first time we met, I am afraid to take the exam, I felt that was a beautiful piece of music, etc., etc. – the mainline view has taken the form of physicalism. According to this view, our mental life is in one way or another reducible to some set of physical conditions, especially if they are brain-based. Talk of mind for many who subscribe to physicalism is pegged as folklorish. It’s talk of something that either doesn’t exist or if it does is some kind of puzzling illusion without any real effects on anything. My instinctive response to that self-satisfied conceit: bullshit!
I first became conscious of this situation when I was in graduate school at Columbia University. I recall one day casually mentioning to a fellow student that from time to time I had psychic experiences. My friend looked at me rather wide-eyed and said: “But that’s impossible! It would imply dualism!” Evidently, it was official. I could not have had the experiences I said I had. I realised there was a choice: ignore, deny, indeed destroy my own experience or reject the mainline dogma that my fellow student had blithely repeated.
One thing I learned from this exchange: the counter-intuitive anti-mind position is entrenched in the prevailing ‘educated’ culture. It often seems necessary to have a jolting psychic encounter before one comes out and opposes the reigning dogmas. Neuroscientists who have near-death epiphanies make strong witnesses willing to come out and challenge mainstream materialism.1
After graduate school I continued to have psychic experiences that were officially forbidden, telepathic and precognitive, as well as incidents of unexplained physical events, and even some that pointed toward postmortem survival.2
All these are officially forbidden because they contradict the materialist creed; they imply the independent reality of mental occurrences and therefore perhaps of a mental world. But most outrageous is anything suggesting people survive bodily death.
The official standpoint wants us completely and totally dead.
I knew I wasn’t the only person in the world to have psychic experiences. So I met others who had been in the metaphysical twilight zone, began to read the vast literature on the subject, and got to know contemporary researchers.
All of this information and all the persons involved in this largely extra-institutional field of study altered my perception of reality. I learned to see myself in a different light. I often had dreams that I lived in a house with rooms I didn’t know I had, rooms that opened up into wild landscapes. I would often wake up feeling both uneasy and exhilarated. I was confident I had hardly begun to know myself. And here is one coup I can boast of: I learned to resist feeling nauseated when I listened to know-it-alls pontificate about the non-existence of things I knew by acquaintance.
I taught college level courses on psychic phenomena and found that virtually all my students were able to write reports – given highly specific criteria to guide them – on cases of apparent psychic performance they were able to dig up from their immediate social environment. Add the constant appearance of such phenomena as themes in movies, TV, fiction, art, and now everywhere on the Internet – and finally, and scarcely a minor matter, the whole of history, especially the so-called ‘religious’ history of humankind, is oozing at every pore with all that officially forbidden psychic, spiritual, and mystical stuff and its attendant physical weirdness. The most extraordinary case I came across was the ecstatic, Joseph of Copertino, a full-spectrum thaumaturge, and in my eyes, a neat mock-up for a postmodern Superman.3
How the massively profound and mysterious experience of the human race can be squeezed into the pint-sized intellectual apparatus of reductive physicalism, beats me. To insist on such a tyrannically constricted peep-hole into reality is a war-crime against the human spirit. The main point: my own experience and the experience of countless human beings blatantly contradict the little jail-house worldview of reductive physicalism. So much for that initial, but for me, decisive first step in talking about the nature of mind: as it should, experience trumps theoretical obsession. On now to theory.
Certain theoretical steps freed me to form a picture of mind more in tune with my experience. Ideas of William James, Irwin Schrödinger, and Carl Jung combined to get rid of an oppressive assumption. As long as I saw my mind and interior world as solely an outgrowth of my brain, my existence seemed that of a doomed outlier, a creature tainted to the core by contingency and suffering from severe causal impotence.
William James, however, offered an alternate view of what might be going on. In a lecture on immortality he gave to a Harvard audience at the end of the nineteenth century, he was faced with trying to account for a variety of human experiences that made no sense in light of the new scientific materialism, according to which everything mental must be some kind of secondary side effect of the really real stuff, the physical. James showed that we are free to assume that consciousness does not emerge from the brain at all. We may in fact assume that brains transmit but do not create consciousness. Consciousness may be a reality, or dimension of being, in and of and even for itself. Mind, not derived from anything physical, does interact with the physical. So we can grant all the mind-brain correlations of neuroscience, without assuming that mind is brain-born or brain-derived.
The idea used to illustrate this is a radio or a TV set: what is heard or seen through such machines originate from somewhere outside the machines. The machines (our brains) are detectors, transmitters, transducers of signals, energies, but from elsewhere; brains are not creators of anything and minds are not machines.
I – my mind – is affected by my body; I can also affect my body, even my brain, and it turns out that the brain is more plastic than formerly assumed. By effort and practice one’s mind can appropriate parts of the brain to reconnect and recapture a lost function. But then brain disease can impair mental function. However, evidence shows that people with impaired brains sometimes recover their mental capacities just before death. This seems to show that impaired brains suppress but do not destroy mental function and content since the latter may reappear as death disentangles mind from brain.
The big point learned from James is that although we live enmeshed with and through our brains, our personal mental life is part of a pre-existing and larger reality. The irreducibility of the mind to the brain that James’s view entails has been reiterated in a different form in recent times with talk of the so-called “hard problem” enunciated by David Chalmers. Virtually everybody nowadays agrees that the reduction of consciousness to the physical is not even remotely conceivable.
Now to a big idea. It seemed perfectly reasonable to assume that consciousness, if not brain-derived, is then a given, a basic part of the basic furniture of being. As far as the mainline view, with a little help from James, we have just turned it upside down. Instead of reducing and eviscerating the substance of mind, we have assigned it a much wider and more fundamental place in nature.
There’s a second move I made toward the radical liberation of my mental life. Schrödinger, one of the founders of quantum mechanics, declared that mind is and can only be numerically one. There is nowhere in the world of mind that you can carve out pieces so as to make mind plural, as you could a sheet of paper or a carbon atom. This doctrine of the one mind, which inspired Schrödinger, can be traced back to the Hindu Upanishads,
The one mind that is filtered through my brain is bound to create the illusion of isolation and separateness. We then naturally identify with our bodies and unique personal perspectives, so the differences between you and me are real enough. And yet, the more deeply we enter ourselves, the more we merge toward the oneness of our humanity that lies in our common consciousness. Simply as a practical point I would say: The way toward the oneness of humanity is not by forcing uniformity but by not fixating on our uniqueness. We can celebrate diversity without neglecting the underlying oneness of spirit.
Another teacher that helped free me to place mind at the centre of my worldview was C. G. Jung. According to Jung, we live from moment to moment and from first to last in a psychical world of images. The stream of interweaving mental and bodily imagery that we experience, punctuated by episodes of more but different kinds of dream imagery, is our existential milieu. There is no exit from this infinitely complex and nuanced world of subjectivity. Jung’s psychical idealism in which the psyche is composed of images is literally where it’s at. It’s impossible to exit from our subjectivity. This, however, does not imply solipsism. In fact, it suggests a much wider range of communication potential. According to the physicalist, however, we have no deep communal mental or spiritual roots; we are separate bodies driven wholly and solely to consume and replicate.
Thanks to my own experience, and helped by fellow travellers, I fought my way free from the suffocating worldview that would have imposed itself on me, if I had let it. Aware now of the primal status of my inner reality, of its numerical oneness in Schrödinger’s Upanishadic sense, and of its self-existence and pervasiveness in nature, I’m in a better place than I began, with the albatross of physicalism off my back. Once we expand our concept of mind, the range of the possible increases exponentially. The idea is not just to think this but to embrace it as we embrace somebody we love.
I want to discuss two big ideas in relation to this expanded concept of mind. The first is the question of life after death, a perennial belief or at least hope of humankind. No doubt that if the prevailing view of mind as some blurry side-effect of living brains is correct, afterlife or immortality talk would have to sputter to a stop. My story is not quite so grim. I can at least report that a large body of evidence exists suggesting that some people survive death with their personalities intact.4 The vast majority of competent scientists and generally educated people are ignorant of this evidence, and seem to lack the curiosity (or the courage) to look into it with an open mind.
I will make one specific point about the idea of consciousness after death. If physicalism were true, we’d have to say no to life after death. But physicalism is false, as anyone with a mind can prove with thoughtful self-scrutiny. So the question remains open. If the model suggested here is true, and consciousness does not ‘emerge’ from the brain – if in short the brain does not create but transmit consciousness – then brain-death would not entail consciousness-death. This move will not guarantee there is a heaven. But the scene has shifted to a sunnier living-room, a room with bay windows that look out upon what seems a magical and enticing forest. Consciousness after bodily death assumes a new mantle of possibility. In light of the evidence collected by researchers, a country of new thought awaits explorers with honest minds and rich hearts.
Given the premise of a primary mental reality, as put forth here, there is another big issue related to rejection of the mainstream view of mind. In the world traditions, besides the idea of life after death, we find ideas of divine agencies – of spirits, angels, demons, gods, goddesses, and so forth. The so-called new atheists have tried to demolish religion, but the critique is shallow, intolerant and too sweeping. They mostly have nothing to say of interest about the core spiritual beliefs that revolve around the mystical experiences of religion.
Expansion of the concept of mind as one and transpersonal, based on our discussion of James, Schrödinger, and Jung, helps us understand how certain religious ideas might arise: for example, the belief in agencies listed above, along with the belief that humans can interact with these higher ones, however named or described. Different cultures and individuals perennially engage the transcendent mind we have described, always in diverse ways, using diverse vocabularies, rites and myths. While happily granting all this, we also assume there is the transcendent one mind, the one underlying consciousness that seeps into our experience through our uniquely conditioned brains and cultures. This too is real and may be thought of as the matrix of all transcendent experience.
In short, while materialists are forced to condemn the whole of ‘religion’ as nonsensical and pernicious, once we acknowledge the reality of transcendent mind, we can appreciate the positive content of all the religions. But we can – must – also carry on a critique of the violently stupid and anti-human offshoots of religious psychopathy.
I think that a good deal of anti-religionism can be as narrow and destructive as the warped religionism the critics love to attack. This leads to my final thought regarding my evolution toward this highly expanded (and radically democratic) view of mind. My views are broadly shared by a significant portion of scholars and thinkers, living and dead. But at this point we are a minority, a voice in the wilderness of self-destructing neo-liberalism,5 and at a time when physicalist metaphysics and practical materialist ideologies are triumphant almost everywhere on the planet.
To take a single but revealing example, consider the amount of money the US invests in its military budget. Of the $1.11 trillion dollars of federal discretionary spending, the US in 2015 consumed 54% or $598.5 billion dollars on the military budget, equal to the next seven largest military budgets, China, Saudi Arabia, etc. Now here is my strange-sounding question: How much of the discretionary spending goes to research on what happens to people after we kill them? The answer, of course, is nothing at all. More than half the national treasure is spent on producing and sustaining an unprecedented world-dominating military machine, with tentacles in the 800 bases planted all over the planet.
This may be an odd way to point out how our civilisation operates, but it’s only one example of how materialist values are acted out to the detriment of life everywhere. What’s clear is that the default option is military not diplomatic, force rather than persuasion. Another example is the way the pharmaceutical industries are edging talk (and therefore mental) therapy out of existence.6 Our entire capitalist-consumerist economy privileges materialist values such as limitless profit and gratification of appetite over justice and self-mastery. Materialism today is not just a philosophical position. It is an attitude, a disposition – a cancer metastasizing in human society. It needs to be not just intellectually refuted but excised from the entrails of a morally corrupt culture.

We’ve all wished for it at one time or another. It may have been with your son who can’t sit still in school, your niece who was throwing a temper-tantrum, or a child who won’t stop crying on that redeye flight. Wouldn’t it be nice to pull out a tranquilizer dart and poof…turn that little Tasmanian devil into a calm, quiet, sleeping beauty!?
The idea of that is not far from reality. Tranquilizer darts often contain antipsychotic drugs and there is a growing trend to prescribe these to our children. From 1993 to 2002, the number of office based visits that included an antipsychotic drug increased more than 500%.1
As a parent desperate for answers, reaching for a quick fix pill can be understandably tempting. But what is the cost of doing so?

Adult Side Effects of Antipsychotic Drugs

Our collective focus on the quick fix makes it easy to ignore the long-term considerations around such an intervention. We have vast amounts of data showing that antipsychotic drugs cause high blood sugar, excess fat accumulation around the waist, low levels of good cholesterol (HDL), high levels of triglycerides, and increased blood pressure 3 in adults. Having three out of these five risk factors means that you have something called the metabolic syndrome. Basically, this is a fancy term that means you are at an increased risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and stroke.4Longitudinal studies have shown that up to 52.4% of schizophrenic patients who start an antipsychotic drug will develop metabolic syndrome within the first three months of treatment.5Pretty scary stuff.
However, the vast majority of this data comes from studies done on adults, and we’re here to talk about using these drugs in our children. Surprisingly, even though they are being used more and more in our youth, we don’t have a lot of data to see what the long-term consequences will be. Do antipsychotic drugs predispose our children to the metabolic syndrome just like adults? Or are they somehow protected from these deleterious effects?

Recent Study Sheds Light

A recent study helps us to further understand these questions. Children between the ages of six and eighteen were randomized into three groups. Each group was given one of the following ‘second-generation’ antipsychotic drugs: olanzapine, risperidone or aripiprazole. All subjects had behavior problems and at least one psychiatric diagnosis, such as ADHD. None had ever taken antipsychotic drugs before.
At the conclusion of the twelve-week study, all three groups showed behavioral change. However, all three groups also showed significant negative side effects. Subjects showed an increased resistance to insulin, putting them at higher risk for early onset diabetes. They also showed an increase in body fat with specific increases deep within the abdomen around the organs. It may seem trivial to include this specific bit of information.

Fat is Fat…Right?

One of the fascinating developments in our understanding of chronic disease is that the anatomical distribution of fat matters. To sum up a still developing story, fat distributed in the abdomen around the organs (visceral fat) is much more dangerous than fat just below the skin (subcutaneous fat).6 Thus, two people with the same amount of body fat may have very different health risks based on where their fat is stored. In short, excess body fat is a risk factor for disease, but if that fat is distributed in the visceral region, it confers an additional independent risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, certain cancers, high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol.6
More disturbingly, researchers hypothesized that their study “likely underestimates longer-term treatment effects” because these negative changes are often progressive over the first year of treatment. For those of you who don’t like math, what they’re saying is that they only looked at the score in the first quarter, not at the end of the game. The real long-term risks of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, are probably much greater than those detailed in this short three month study. Further, children are “physically and emotionally more vulnerable to the adverse effects (of antipsychotic drugs) because of their smaller size, developing physiology, and negative impact on peer perceptions.2 To answer our previous question, children are not more resilient to the adverse effects of antipsychotic drugs, they are more susceptible.
Although alarming, these results are not particularly shocking. They confirm that what is bad for adults is also bad for youth…actually worse.

Why are These Drugs Given to Children in the First Place?

In the pediatric population, the majority of antipsychotic drugs are actually not given to treat psychosis, as the name implies. Surprisingly, they are generally prescribed to treat behavioral disorders. For example, only 2.8% of the subjects in this study actually had symptoms consistent with psychosis (some further percentage of whom were likely already treated with a stimulant known to induce psychosis). The remaining 97.2% had behavioral symptoms deemed unacceptable by school, family, or both.
Use of antipsychotic drugs in this manner is largely not approved by the FDA due to “insufficient evidence of safety and efficacy.” 2 So why is there a growing trend to prescribe them when they are not approved by the FDA and studies are mounting showing severe negative side effects?

Do We Really Practice Evidence Based Medicine?

Robert Whitaker, a medical journalist and author, writes that the field of psychiatry is experiencing an institutionalized form of cognitive dissonance – a conflicted psychological state that occurs when new information challenges deeply held beliefs. In the context of this article, long held beliefs about the safety and efficacy of antipsychotic drugs are being challenged by new data showing their dangerous side effects and overall ineffectiveness. In general, people resolve this conflicted state “by sifting through information in ways that protect their self-esteem and their financial interests.” 7
Psychiatry, as an institution, is doing just that. Sifting through data to suit their needs. Research that shows psychiatric drugs in a negative light often gets swept under the rug as being biased, of poor quality or otherwise uninformed. There is little acceptance for anything that goes against that status quo. The goal is no longer to seek for better treatment protocols, but to protect the power, prestige and financial interests of the psychiatric institution. Unfortunately, in this state, evidence based medicine cannot be practiced.
As Upton Sinclair famously stated, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” 8

The War on Human Consciousness ~ Rachel Horton White

The War on Human Consciousness.

By Rachel Horton White, 

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

May 31st, 2019. 

 


 

There is a war out there against the expansion of human consciousness. It has been escalating in recent years to the point where we must protect ourselves from the onslaught of this intervening frequency trying to turn us into stressed-out, sick automatons.
This is the same low-vibration energy that is responsible for the ravaging and disregard of the Earth herself along with all the plants and animals; responsible for the profit-driven, billion-dollar business of war and for the overly-medicated, misdiagnosed children raised on screens; responsible  for the greediness of the pharmaceutical industry “treating” illnesses that often make us even sicker – and obviously, responsible for the insanity that seems to run the U.S. government.
And most recently, the proposed 5G technology for cell phones is really the icing on the cake.

Awakening to Truth

Many of us wonder if we will ever feel better, if the Earth will ever heal. There are scares about climate change, about mass extinction of entire species and about the future of humanity itself.
But the greatest danger to the human race is our own unwillingness to pull the blinders off of our eyes. Smartphones have taken over many people’s consciousness to the point where they are numbing themselves to their loved ones and to their own souls. Our addiction to the news and to sources we think are telling us the truth have turned friends and family against each other just because they voted for a certain person for President.
It’s not fun to wake up to the fact that many of these institutions are harming us (although, as with everything, there are both good and bad elements in all). And many of us are still in denial about this, refusing to accept the enormity of the lies that we have been fed.
It’s too upsetting to believe so we try to go back into our shells and pretend it’s not real. But eventually we wake up to the Matrix (this movie, like many, has a message for us) and realize we are living in a version of the Truman Show.

Shifting Energies

Fortunately,  the energies are shifting to shake us out of our slumber. More and more people are experiencing spiritual awakening (are you seeing 11:11 everywhere? That’s a clear sign that you’re awakening. If not… you will – and this meditation might help).
Often, change does not occur until it is forced, or until it gets more difficult to avoid. It’s going to get harder and harder to avoid flowing with these new, expansive energies.
We have reached a point when people can choose the path of love, healing, forgiveness, kindness and freedom. It is a path that requires great courage, risk and overcoming fear. The alternative is the path of being afraid, of going along with the crowd and of making choices based on worry about worst-case scenario. We have free will as human souls. We can choose love, or we can choose fear. Often we choose a mixture of both.
Faced with so many choices, it’s natural to feel so overwhelmed that we do nothing. But it is this collective apathy that has led us to the state that we are in today.

Defeating Overwhelm: Start with One Small Thing

What do you care about? What one small thing can you do to make a positive change in the world today?
In the past, when I saw something that bothered me, I would have complained to someone, but then probably forgotten about it.
Let me give you an example. Recently, after visiting a local farm and dairy product company that claims to be free-range, we were dismayed to see that the cows were not free-range at all. My kids told me they did not want to go back there “until the cows’ chains were off their necks.”
Before, I would have felt that I could not really do anything to change the situation. But that excuse does not work for me anymore. I can no longer watch from the sidelines. And my children remind me of this.
So, one small thing. I emailed the company management and wrote a review of them, but they said they would do nothing. So I wrote a letter to the editor of our local newspaper (which was published). The next step, if needed, will be to contact the suppliers and restaurants to let them know about the problem so they can refuse to buy from this company if need be.
Humans for years have unconsciously eaten animals that have suffered or bought products that put chemicals in our bodies or on our lawnsThe power of the consumer to put the pressure on companies to do better with what we buy or do not buy cannot be underestimated.
What’s your one small thing, that you can do now, today, to make a difference?

Activate to Evolve

We are awakening to the truth of what has been done to us in our lives. It’s not our fault. Mostly. But we now know. So it’s up to us to now do something about it. This is our time to activate. Each and every one of us.
The solutions are simple when broken down. Here are 7 things that work for me and may also help you:
  • Quiet your mind every day. At least for 5 minutes, ideally for 15-20 minutes.
  • Connect with something beyond yourself – something based in light and love.
  • Put your phone down when you can. Just try it. Wait 5 seconds before picking it up next time. Ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” and see if it feels good to you.
  • Get out in nature for no particular reason or purpose other than just to wander, explore and observe.
  • Connect with other people, in person if possible. Ask for Spirit to guide you to people that can lift you up and support you.
  • Do something to help the world. “Think globally, act locally.” Pick one cause you care about and take five minutes to do something – more than just signing a petition online. Make a phone call, write a letter to the editor, show up at a rally.
  • Think about what you buy, eat and put on your body and in your home and make a statement with your wallet. If it has chemicals in it, is made of an animal that has suffered, or is rooted in perpetuating harm to the Earth in some way, you may want to pause and really ask yourself if it’s worth it.
Consumers will ultimately revolutionize our world. When we refuse to give our money to companies that destroy the Earth and its beings, they will either change their ways or cease to exist.
We are now being asked to choose. The turning point has been reached. We are being asked to have courage. We are being asked to heal ourselves and find light in our hearts. Not everyone will answer this call. They may experience life in a completely different way than you do.  But the time has come for us to activate, to speak up for justice, to advocate for causes we believe in, and to help ourselves and others by connecting with our souls and with light all around us to help us do this.
 I do believe there is a lot of hope for change, as more people are choosing the path of expansion, freedom and love. And there are positive changes being made in some areas of government, companies, education and even the health care system. But more of us are needed to speak up from a place of love, compassion and forgiveness (even for those responsible for the suffering). The time is now for us to decide.
I believe that nature will eventually recover. Whether or not humans choose to do so is another story.
What will you choose?

Transcending the Illusion of Light Versus Dark ~ Jeff Street

Transcending the Illusion of Light Versus Dark ~ Jeff Street

 
 
Transcending the Illusion of Light Versus Dark By Jeff Street, *Wake Up World*May 29, 2018 Originally published at Divine Cosmos and reproduced here with permission.
 
A belief that seems to be prevalent in many spiritual circles is that the ascension of humanity involves some sort of battle between the forces of light and the forces of darkness — a battle between good and evil. Associated with this belief is the idea that we (the so-called awakened and enlightened ones) must defeat those of the darkness to successfully co-create a new earth.

Inconvenient Truths: Astrology Forecast May 26th – June 2nd 2019 ~ Lorna Bevan

Inconvenient Truths:

 Astrology Forecast May 26th – June 2nd 2019.

By Lorna Bevan

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

May 26th, 2019. 

 
 
.
 
The recent super intensity will lessen briefly this week but the revelations will keep on coming. With both Mercury and Mars now out of bounds and out of control, the outworkings of cause and effect – no matter how far back their roots – will become obvious, visible and undeniable. This applies equally to the collective and to your own life.
 
As Mercury squares both illusionist Neptune and Jupiter, some of the drama will seem like a soap opera. Mars in Cancer is at odds with Chiron so when the chickens do come home to roost, it will be painful to watch or experience. Expect pushback, fake news, outright denials and attempted cover ups.
If something from your past comes back to bite you, first look closer to understand the message before taking the lesson on board. Keep in mind the NLP Principle:” There is no failure. Only feedback”. This is definitely not a week to believe everything you hear, nor is it a good time to make any important decisions.
Starting at next week’s Gemini New Moon, June will deliver
  • the first hit of seismic waves from two wild card eclipses on July 2 + 16 across Cancer/Capricorn + Saturn/Pluto
  • continuous deep space alignments accelerating relentless personal and planetary evolution
  • yet more physical re-alignment + bodily transfiguration as old cellular programs are eliminated
For much more, my June 2019 5D Report alerts you to three (!) fast approaching intense energy influxes + draws you the definitive time-line of the eye watering astrological ride of a lifetime you can expect between now and the end of 2020.

The Chandra Symbol for Mars at max CANCER 10

A violent hail storm
“Great disruption serves long-term continuity. By submitting yourself periodically to soul ordeals, to tests and trials, you make sure that your destiny is self-renewing. The path indicated is neither chaotic nor random. It is sharply pointed to take on experiences and lessons that are needed and to fully transmute the karmic sequences. You have a core commitment to tackling the hard stuff with a fury of intent that is just enough to make the whole thing work, revealing that you can do the impossible if your will is singular and your inner strength to go the distance is as solid and real as any obstacle, and even more so.”

Aries Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

This is a week to tread extra gently and carefully, whoever you meet and whatever you’re doing. With your personal planet Mars out of control and at odds with Chiron in your sign, conflict could easily flare up at home, with partners and family. On top of that, Mercury is unbounded, in full -on Trickster mode in your own angle of communication and in cahoots with slippery Neptune. Keep reminding yourself that you don’t have the full picture, that appearances can be deceptive and, above all, cut yourself and others some slack all week. People really are doing the best they can with the resources and knowledge they have at this time.
Take a chill pill and remember to breathe.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

Are you still reeling from the impact of last Saturday’s Full Moon across your sign? Unsurprisingly, it delivered some powerful truth bombs, nudging you to look at certain situations you’ve been brushing under the carpet. Now the question is, what are you going to do about it? There’s absolutely no rush -in fact don’t make any decisions before the Gemini New Moon on Tuesday June 3- as this week both Mercury and Mars are out of control, overreactive and looking for trouble where none exists. Combine that with Mercury at odds with Jupiter and Neptune and life has all the makings of a soap opera.
Allow answers and insights to arise naturally.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

With both the Sun and Mercury back in your own sign-on home ground-your energy and motivation has lifted. And being someone who always needs to be engaged in what’s happening around you, it would be tempting to start trying to shape a whole new direction. But both Mercury and Mars are out of control all week aligned with slippery Neptune at the pinnacle of your chart, meaning you can’t yet see the whole picture. Especially where your finances, income stream and personal security are concerned, leave any decisions until after next Tuesday June 3rd’s Gemini New Moon. That’s when you celebrate your personal New Year and everything aligns in your favour.
Stay right away from emotional dramas.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

With the Sun in the deepest most inaccessible part of chart , your batteries are starting to run low. It’s nothing to worry about, just a natural annual cycle that means making your physical and emotional wellbeing your top priority, no matter what else is going on around you. This year, the need to avoid burn out is especially strong as Mars is out of control in Cancer at odds with Chiron while Mercury is in cahoots with Jupiter and Neptune, obscuring the truth and turning everything into a potential soap opera. As an emotional, empathic Water sign, this week your energy field needs grounding through bodywork. It doesn’t matter what- yoga, reiki, dancing or walking-your physicality is crying out for some loving attention.
Coming home to yourself.

Leo Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

Last Saturday’s potent Full Moon at the pinnacle of your chart delivered some truth bombs about your life direction. Tempting as it may be to brush inconvenient truths back under the carpet, it’s now too late. Once you’ve seen them, you can’t unsee them. This week with both Mercury and Mars out of control and looking for action-read trouble- instead of ploughing on regardless, take some time out to consider your options. And despite what you may be feeling right now, you have so many to choose from. If you’re just realising that your ladder’s been up against the wrong wall, you have enormous planetary support to change direction. There’s no rush -your purpose is seeking you and is hot on your trail.
Take the path of least resistance.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

This is one of those rare times when all 4 angles of your chart-your foundations-are being activated at once. That means  it would be counter-productive to make hard and fast decisions and far better to take a step back to see the big picture. With your own sign ruler Mercury out of control and in full on Trickster mode aligned with slippery Neptune and Jupiter, what you see is not what you get. In your career, in your closest partnerships and at home, if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is. The one bright light in this sensitive planetary landscape is if a relationship has turned cool, the ashes can be rekindled. The trick is to avoid emotional dramas and trust your instincts.
Tread gently.

Libra Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

For just about every sign, this is a week to be cautious about offers which seem too good to be true. And that certainly applies to you, as you may be needing a boost to your spirits so much that you end up clutching at straws. That said, with Mars at full power in your career zone and your personal planet Venus lighting up your one to one relationships,there are some wonderful opportunities to go after your heart’s desires. Just take it slowly, watch from the side lines rather than jump in with both feet and by the Gemini New Moon on June 3rd, you’ll get the green light to move full steam ahead.
Keep in mind that you may be chilled but others are going to be hyper-reactive.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

Last Saturday’s doozy of a Full Moon in your own sign certainly delivered some truth bombs and you’re probably still reeling from the having such a spotlight shone into the deepest corners of your life. Frame whatever arose in terms of chickens coming home to roost as rare opportunity to make a positive course correction. And this applies particularly to your finances. Tempting as it may be to overspend or buy into a charismatic sales pitch, with both Mars and Mercury out of control and in cahoots with illusionist Neptune, if something looks too good to be true then it probably is. Far better to take stock of your income and expenditure and know exactly what your bottom line is. Don’t worry about missing out, whatever is for you will come by you.
Make your mantra:” Buyer Beware”!

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

As a Sagittarian hosting your personal planet expansionist Jupiter in your own sign until November, you’re riding a once in 12-year wave of opportunity. So many possibilities are presenting themselves that it can be hard to know which to choose. This week, take a step back and notice just how far you’ve come. Then ask yourself: “Now that I’ve stopped struggling, striving, seeking, and searching, what new freedom have I discovered? “and then the biggest question of all: “What does my future look like if it’s full of what works? “. This will focus your attention on where you truly want to go and avoid being side tracked by seemingly attractive offers that would turn out to be a distraction. With Mercury in full on Trickster mode in cahoots with illusionist Neptune all week, take off your rose tinted glasses.
Keep your eyes on the prize.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

This is a planetary landscape where just about everyone will be extra sensitive, thin skinned and overreactive. Keep that firmly in mind as you go through the week and draw on your legendary resilience and practicality to resist joining them. The Ace up your sleeve is action planet Mars in your opposite sign at his most impactful providing you with rocket fuel for your most important plans and projects. Just be careful about uncharacteristically going too far, too fast and too impetuously and alienating other people on the way. Involve them in your ideas, ask for their input, have faith in them and carry them along with you for the ride.
Ignite destination.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

It’s a strange week for you as an Aquarian. Nothing will be straightforward or plain sailing. People around you will be much more sensitive and thin -skinned than usual so tread carefully and be extra tactful unless you are actively seeking a confrontation. The two areas that demand your attention are your finances and your surroundings. With Mercury at odds with illusionist Neptune in your angle of income and resources, be wary of offers that seem too good to be true-they probably are. Focus on earning rather than spending. With Venus in your 4th House of home, update by de-cluttering instead of buying more stuff. That way, your desire to make your house a better reflection of you is easily achievable.
Create space for relaxing.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: May 26-June 2, 2019

With so much activity in your own and compatible mutable signs, you are back in your element. And just as well, since Mercury in your angle of home is in full on trickster mode and at odds with both your personal planet Neptune and Jupiter in your career zone. This could go one of two ways: either you will be full of inventive, creative ideas and insights or something you had pinned your hopes on fails to materialise. If so, use it to make a course correction, and keep in mind the NLP principle :” There is no failure. Only feedback”. Other people will be too focused on their own issues to notice. Avoid any hard and fast decisions this week and wait until next Tuesday June 3 Gemini Full Moon for clarity to return.
Make sure your satnav, map or inner compass is working well.

As Denver Decriminalizes Mushrooms, Major City Moves to Decriminalize Ayahuasca, Ibogaine Too ~ Matt Agorist


As Denver Decriminalizes Mushrooms, Major City Moves to Decriminalize Ayahuasca, Ibogaine Too.

Nearly seven years ago, Colorado citizens—tired of the war on drugs and wise to the near-limitless benefits of cannabis—made US history by voting to legalize recreational marijuana. Now, this state has once again placed themselves on the right side of history as they voted this month to decriminalize magic mushrooms. But this was just the beginning and their momentum is spreading—faster and stronger, toward decriminalizing all plant-based psychedelics.
Now, a major city in California is following suit, but not just with psilocybin—Oakland is calling for decriminalization of other psychedelics like mescaline cacti, ayahuasca and ibogaine.
To be clear, the recent measure does not mean that mushrooms are now legal in Denver, it simply means that cops can’t make it a priority to go after folks for them and it won’t land people in jail for possession. While legalization would be the perfect result, this is most certainly a step in the right direction and this step appears to be a giant leap now that California is doing the same.
As Forbes reports:
The resolution, which would seek to bar police and other city officials from using “any city funds or resources to assist in the enforcement of laws imposing criminal penalties for the use and possession” of the plant – and fungi-based substances, has been scheduled for a hearing before the Oakland City Council’s Public Safety Committee on May 28.
If approved there, it would head to the full council for a final vote.
Like the Denver resolution, the Oakland resolution would make possession of these psychedelics “amongst the lowest law enforcement priority” for the city under the measure, according to Forbes, which also specifies that the Council “wishes to declare its desire not to expend City resources in any investigation, detention, arrest, or prosecution arising out of alleged violations of state and federal law regarding the use of Entheogenic Plants.”
“We already have support from at least five members of the Council, but our goal is to get eight out of eight to show unanimous support, because this affects all communities in Oakland,” Carlos Plazola, an organizer with the group Decriminalize Nature, which worked to help draft the measure, said in an interview.
As TFTP has reported in the past, psilocybin-containing mushrooms are an enemy to the establishment who has every reason in the world to want to keep them as illegal as possible. The same goes for ayahuasca and other powerful mind-opening substances.
The United States Supreme Court has unanimously ruled in favor of the legal religious use of ayahuasca by the União do Vegetal, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has affirmed the Santo Daime Church’s freedom to use Ayahuasca for religious purposes. However, ayahuasca’s principally active ingredient, DMT, remains a Schedule I controlled substance, carrying a steep prison sentence.
Many people have been forced to travel outside of the country to meet with Shamans in the Amazon who are skilled and knowledgeable about the substance.
One industry in particular, Big Pharma, stands to lose billions if measures like this one began to spread to other areas as mushrooms and other hallucinogens have been clinically tested to treat a wide range of problems, including depression.
One in ten men in the US currently takes an antidepressant while 16.5 percent of women use them as well. If people can treat their depression with something that you can grow in your own home or a plant medicine from a shaman verses taking pills with side effects like homicidal ideation, the pharmaceutical industry would lose big time.
Indeed, there are mounds of evidence and studies showing the positive benefits of magic mushrooms, ayahuasca, and ibogaine.
As TFTP reported last year, a study, published in the scientific journal Neuropharmacology, found that clinically depressed people had increased neural responses to fearful faces one day after a psilocybin-assisted therapy session, which positively predicted positive clinical outcomes.
“Psilocybin-assisted therapy might mitigate depression by increasing emotional connection,” neuroscientist and study author Leor Roseman, a Ph.D. student at Imperial College London, explained to PsyPost.
This is almost the exact opposite of how standard anti-depressants operate, as SSRI’s typically work by creating an “emotional blunting.”
“[T]his is unlike SSRI antidepressants which are criticized for creating in many people a general emotional blunting,” noted Roseman.
“I believe that psychedelics hold a potential to cure deep psychological wounds, and I believe that by investigating their neuropsychopharmacological mechanism, we can learn to understand this potential,” explained Roseman.
The government also stands to lose if more measures like this take hold in other cities too.
As TFTP previously reported, mushrooms and psychedelics used to be widely accepted as a treatment for many ailments until government moved in to stop the expansion of human consciousness.
As MAPS points out, although first-hand accounts indicate that ibogaine is unlikely to be popular as a recreational drug, ibogaine remains classified as a Schedule I drug in the United States (it is also scheduled in Belgium and Switzerland). Yet despite its classification as a drug with a “high potential for abuse” and “no currently accepted medical use,” people who struggle with substance abuse continue to seek out international clinics or underground providers to receive ibogaine treatment.
In the 1940s, western medicine began realizing the potential for psychedelics to treat addiction and psychiatric disorders. Tens of thousands of people were treated effectively, and psychedelic drugs were on the fast track to becoming mainstream medicine. But the beast of oppression reared its ugly head.
In 1967 and 1970, the UK and US governments cast all psychedelic substances into the pit of prohibition. People were waking up to the fact that governments intended to keep the world in a state of war, and that governments were working to keep the populace sedated under a cloak of consumerism. The collective mind expansion of that era came to a screeching halt under the boot and truncheon.
As John Vibes pointed out last January, a study actually confirmed the fear of authoritarians and showed they have every reason to oppose legal mushrooms. According to the study from the Psychedelic Research Group at Imperial College London, published in the journal Psychopharmacologypsychedelic mushrooms tend to make people more resistant to authority. They also found the psychedelic experience induced by these mushrooms also cause people to be more connected with nature.
“Our findings tentatively raise the possibility that given in this way, psilocybin may produce sustained changes in outlook and political perspective, here in the direction of increased nature relatedness and decreased authoritarianism,” researchers Taylor Lyons and Robin L. Carhart-Harris write in the study.
Now, as people share information globally, instantaneously, on a scale unstoppable by the state, we are resuming the advancement of medical research on psychedelic substances. Scientists are challenging the irrational classification of psychedelics as “class A” (UK) or “schedule 1” (US) substances, characterized as having no medical use and high potential for addiction. And, the recent push in Colorado is evidence of this.
While the stigma associated with mushrooms and other psychedelics has been perpetuated by those who wish to keep them illegal—to keep society in a constant state of obedient mediocrity—in reality, they are extremely safe.
In fact, a major study last year declared magic mushrooms to be the safest recreational drug.
Of an astonishing 120,000 participants from 50 nations, researchers for the Global Drug Survey found the percentage of those seeking emergency treatment for ingesting psilocybin-containing hallucinogenic mushrooms to comprise just 0.2 percent per 10,000 individuals.
Rates of hospitalization for MDMA, alcohol, LSD, and cocaine were an astounding five times higher.
“Magic mushrooms are one of the safest drugs in the world,” Global Drug Survey founder and consultant addiction psychiatrist, Adam Winstock, told the Guardian, noting the biggest risk users face is misidentification — ingesting the wrong mushroom — not from the psychedelic fungus, itself.
After 40 years, it appears that another brick in the wall of prohibition is beginning to crumble in the face of science and logic. There may be hope for humanity after all.

Consciousness in Exile: A Shamanic Perspective ~ Sergey Baranov

Consciousness in Exile: 

A Shamanic Perspective.

Consciousness in Exile: We Need It Back! – A Shamanic Perspective

Humanity has reached a point in history where major decisions have to be made. As we approach an existential crisis as a species, we must rethink and re-evaluate our way of life, and the outcome of this deeply introspective process will determine our future. Just as every individual goes through personal crises during the growth process, we are collectively at such a crisis point now. Adolescent, irresponsible and silly, we seem to think we understand the world and know better than those who came before us, but we have no apparent guardian to rely upon. The teenager can rely on his parents to guide him on his path. We are told that we have such guidance by religious leaders, gurus, babas, self-proclaimed prophets and the luminaries of science but, from personal experience and a lifelong spiritual search, I came to the conclusion that nobody really knows and none of these self-declared mentors possess a cure for personal and collective madness. Their methods, therapies and ideas are only mildly effective in helping with minor issues.
This is what psychology is all about. When it comes to serious problems such as the need for purpose and meaning — why to live or not to live, and if yes then how— mainstream psychology, religion and spirituality can only hook you up to their life-support machines via soothing words or poorly understood pharmaceuticals. You will live, with the aid of these brittle crutches, but your life will have little color. This is, in fact, the message I seek to deliver:  not the message from Orion , the Pleiades, Alpha Centauri or Andromeda — these ‘’messages’’ I’ll leave to the professional ‘’messengers’’ — but the message I hear in my heart, the simple, clear voice reaching to us from mother Earth. This intuitive, yet rational, pure communication would most likely fit psychiatry’s description of schizophrenia, but I assure you that it would not be difficult for me to face anyone from the field and convince them otherwise.
There is nothing crazy about loving and communing with the heart, blood and lungs of the planet. That which makes the planet alive is currently sick, perhaps even dying. There is nothing insane about feeling a bond with nature and finding healing peace in it. There is nothing strange about enjoying the sound of birds, the rivers, the feel of sunshine and warm wind. There is nothing weird about feeling a spiritual bond with animals and plants we share this planet with. And there is nothing wrong about seeking physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing by using sacred plants. Unfortunately, these great teachers are seized and suppressed by those who do not have our best interests at heart. These are the people who have assumed divine right to command others. Of course, their sense of superiority is utterly false and the product of a continuum of illusions: digits on the screen, media attention, fancy banquets and red carpets. But these only signify material wealth which translates into social control.  If, however, such “masters” were to appear in front of a jury, perhaps most of them would be found in contempt of the court. Thus, judging by a moral standard, those who thought to be inferior are actually superior and vice versa.
None of my friends would support a bill to send people to kill other people and get killed themselves. None of my friends would support a corporate fascism gone rampant, destroying our environment and the lives of our children to make more money. None of my friends would bail out banks while letting working families go have their lives ruined via material want. None of my friends would support a life style which helps some to die from obesity while others starve to death. None of my friends would criminalize safe and effective medicines while making experimental and dangerous drugs legal.
But none of my friends are bankers, corporate heads and politicians. Thus, like me, they must obey and live under the iron fist of unjust law.
Unfortunately, this is the true history of our world. Perhaps it was different before the creation of money. People fished and hunted to get fed and no one was in control of their lives. Their natural needs were their motivation. This was also the time when the preacher didn’t exist. No one was stupid enough to endanger their lives hunting a bear just to give a portion of it to someone who would tell him about the glory of a mysterious afterlife of which the preacher could truly know nothing. No one would give a piece of meat in exchange for shallow words. People were pragmatic because life demanded them to be so. No one would leave their family in a cave and follow a weirdo who claims that he is reincarnated Christ or others who tells that enlightenment is just a lifetime ahead.
So why today, being evolved in so many ways, do we retain childish, illogical imaginings, absurd notions and idiotic rants when it comes to the core of our lives, our freedom?  Why today do we stand like drunken people, silently and passively observing their own execution?
Why today are we fed pharmaceutical and spiritual poison while an abundance of consciousness expanding, healing plants are known and available? These plants are accessible and very effective. By rejecting this hand given to us by nature we reject the opportunity to heal, understand ourselves and the world. If our world is made of cognition, then consciousness is the fuel we need most. And if sacred plants can easily seed the fields of our minds and grow consciousness, then this is where we must direct our resources.
Can you imagine the impact on human life if a purchase of just one fighter jet F-35 was cut so that 135 million dollars[1] could be directed to consciousness research? What do you think the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) could do with this funding? Can you imagine the impact on our health if a purchase of just one nuclear submarine was canceled and its $1.7 Billion dollars[2] were given to independent researchers in search of a cure for cancer? Can you fathom the results on our education if the purchase of one aircraft carrier was shelved and 13 billion dollars [3] were given to a group of the brightest individuals and educators of our time to work together and create a better curriculum for our kids? Or if a mere fraction of it could be given to the brightest engineers to fashion the technology we need to power the Earth with alternative, clean sources of energy? Can you imagine our world without hunger and poverty? All it takes is the cancellation of a few wars![4] It seems to me that the evolutionist has missed the point. Instead of arguing over the origin of man and search for the missing link between the monkeys and the human, they should be searching for the missing links between humans. This research can use some help!
I see an urgent need for a collective effort to fund independent consciousness research via psychedelics, attracting the best hearts and minds we have. We need to take our world back and let human potential be realized in a constructive way. Disempowered by the lack of psychedelic experiences, we are floating away from the treasure island which is our planet Earth.
We have a surplus of destructive technologies, but we also have the technology to deal with the problem of consciousness. These are sacred plants and psychedelics, the too-often neglected link between humanity and nature. Psychedelic experience brings people together and lets them see their commonalities as greater than their differences. We even have professional technicians to operate the equipment. All we need is a change in law which holds everything back. In fact, it holds back the survival and evolution of our species, which makes  psychedelic prohibition a crime against humanity.
Psychedelics can open many doors and their greatest gift, at this vital moment, is the realization that our world is worth saving.  Our industrialized culture has many tanks: we have fuel tanks, water tanks, military tanks and even alleged “think-tanks”, but we don’t have a significant “psychedelic tank” that a sane world could lawfully assemble to help us grasp higher consciousness. Such a group of individuals working together, not needing to compete individually just to put food on their plates, would gather momentum to heighten consciousness, to develop a social sanity out of which better ideas would emerge. However, with the pressure of modern life, restrained by time, money and freedom, enormous human potential is being lost. It’s great to have a sensory deprivation tank somewhere in the city, where people can disconnect briefly from their mouse-wheel and relax, but what we need is a greater, psychedelic tank to roll over the insanity and delusion which seems to rise with every single day.
What kind of a society have we created, where people struggle to connect with one another through necessitated misery and pain? It feels hopeless because all you see around you is the same shit you are in. It seems like there is no way out of the vicious circle. When was the last time you used a subway in a New York or a London? If you haven’t, perhaps it is worth the experience. This is how millions of people start and end their every day. A dark, cold, noisy, unfriendly environment, full of people who, just like you, hate to be there. These are your unconscious companions on your life journey. Did you ever ask yourself why you live in the city? Did it ever occur to you that a toxic city life may be the root cause for depression and anxiety? Spiritually deprived and unhappy, you are forced through daily drudgery. Artificial modern culture exacerbates the problem. Out of desperation and loneliness people fall into all kinds of addictions, join bizarre cults and believe in strange, circular ideas, all just to escape their prescribed misery. Others end up being under the train which takes you to work.
Intuitively, we feel the need to restore the inner and outer order.  But this task is impossible without the help of our immeasurably intelligent plant teachers, which have withstood the test of millions of years of evolution and are available for us to heal the self-hating, neurotic egos that have been programmed into us.
We are told by spiritual leaders that we don’t need psychedelics plants, that it’s just enough to cross our legs and breath, but as enlightening as such practices may be, a degree in leg crossing now comes too slowly to solve personal and global problems. These are slow acting technologies and we have run out of time to rely upon them. We are, and have been for millennia, gravitating towards nature and shamanic ecstasy. A symbiosis between us and the natural world is not the stuff of fantasy but a fundamental law of nature and a force as certain as gravity. And just as particles are pulled together by the force of gravity, we are pulled together by the innate desire to connect.
What kind of a world are we living in today when a Law of Nature is illegal to practice? Religion is a child of psychedelic experiences that has denounced his progenitor. Humanity is the prodigal son which must return home. Wretched, lost, fallen into poverty and despair, it crawls back to Nature for help. The spiritual leaders fail us, like our philosophers and political leaders. They are all pursuing their own agenda, while caring less for the rest of us. It is time to embrace life and reclaim our hearts and minds.
This is what I see in the classical painting of The Return of the Prodigal Son by Rembrandt. Besides the clear message of forgiveness and mercy, masterfully represented by the Baroque artist, I see humanity represented by the Prodigal Son, and Mother Nature in the figure of the father. This painting is an archetype for spiritual awakening, an insight that takes it out of religious context.
The plants are real and their dimensions are accessible for us. And that is the truth.
Clear thinking leads to evolution. Confusion leads to extinction. We don’t have scarcity of resources and plants. We only lack guidance and a warm, legal climate in which we can comfortably explore consciousness.
In the absence of psychedelics, our egos grow like cancer, eventually consuming the host. We think we are becoming Gods by being able to split the atom and slice genes, a dangerous technology without humility and spiritual understanding. But in fact, we may be becoming arrogant morons who are on the brink of destroying everything that has been created on Earth by man and the Universe.  There is another way.  We can and must take it.

Could a Root Canal Be the Cause of Your Chronic Health Problem? ~ Dr. Joseph Mercola

Could a Root Canal Be the Cause of Your Chronic Health Problem?.

By Dr. Joseph Mercola.

Contributing writer for Wake Up World.

February 15th, 2019 


 

 

Infection caused by a root canal has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and cancer, but may play a role in many other conditions as well, including chronic fatigue and chronic pain.
Root canal treated teeth may harbor harmful microbes, the toxic metabolic waste products of which can have systemic health impacts and contribute to a variety of chronic diseases.
The Netflix documentary “Root Cause” investigates these issues, interviewing doctors and dentists around the world, including yours truly (although briefly), who believe many health problems can be traced back to these infected teeth. Interviewed medical professionals include:
Dr. David Minkoff • Dr. Greg Emerson • Dr. Stuart Nunnally DDS • Dr. Gerald H. Smith DDS • Dr. Thomas Rau, medical director of the Paracelsus Academy1 in Switzerland, a leading center for alternative medicine in Europe, including biological dentistry • Dr. Jerry Tennant • Dawn Ewing Ph.D., author of “Let the Tooth Be Known” • Cardiologist Thomas E. Levy, co-author of “The Toxic Tooth: How a Root Canal Could Be Making You Sick” • Dr. Lane Freeman DDS • Dr. Bradley Nelson, author of “The Emotion Code” • Dr. Candice Owens DDS • Dr. Mark A. Steiner DDS, who specializes in whole-body dentistry.
The film details the personal experiences of film director Frazer Bailey (played by actor Ben Purser), who spent a decade trying to track down the root cause of his chronic anxiety, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and insomnia. A trailer is included below. The full film is available on Netflix. For those of you who don’t have access to Netflix, you can view my previous video on root canals.
You can download the transcript here.

Root Canals Are a Source of Chronic Infection

As explained in the film, the key problem with a root canal is that the tooth has died but remains in the body. It’s well-known you cannot leave a dead organ in your body or it will cause severe infection.
There’s really no reason to imagine a dead tooth wouldn’t cause the same kind of problem. Teeth are living structures with blood supply flowing through them. Even if the root is cleaned out well, it’s impossible to get the bacteria out of the microtubules, and the waste material from these bacteria is extremely toxic. Tennant says:
“Perhaps one of the world’s leading authorities on biological toxins is Boyd Haley [Ph.D.] at the University of Kentucky.2 What Haley found and published is that toxins from a root canaled tooth are equal in toxicity to the standard by which all biological toxins are measured, namely hydrogen sulfide. He also found that the toxins from a root canaled tooth are equal in toxicity to botulism poisoning.”
(On a side note, I interviewed Haley late last year and should be posting that interview in the near future.) Unfortunately, since the root has been cleaned out and nerve endings have been cut, you can no longer sense pain in that tooth. Hence you may not notice the fact that you have an infection festering under and around the tooth. As a result, a root canaled tooth may serve as a fount of infection-causing bacteria that then get circulated through your body via your bloodstream.
As noted by Smith, a dentist, your teeth are made up of the same tissue as your sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve tissue, so it’s important to realize that your teeth are part of your biology and cannot be separated from it. Any toxins originating in your mouth will be transported via your lymphatic system through your thyroid, thymus, heart and the rest of your body.
The pulp of your tooth is also closely interconnected with your lymph system and autonomic system — more so than any other organ, according to Rau. Your teeth are also energetically connected to and will affect your meridians, used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Toxic Teeth Linked to Heart Disease

The BaleDoneen Method,3 a cardiovascular health strategy provided by the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center, emphasizes the need to avoid root canals, as the bacteria produced are known to affect cardiovascular health. Levy, a cardiologist and author of “The Toxic Tooth” says:
“My pet peeve as a cardiologist right now is that so many family practitioners, internal medicine practitioners, my fellow cardiologists, see a patient who has a heart attack, and they find the cholesterol is OK, lipids are OK, there’s no high blood pressure, there are no risk factors, and they might not use these words with the patient, but they say that person just had bad luck.”
In Levy’s view, the often-overlooked source of these heart attacks are infected root canaled teeth. A Finnish study4 published in 2016 seems to confirm such suspicions, finding that hidden tooth infections may indeed predispose certain individuals to heart disease.
In this case, they did not focus on infected root canals, rather those with apical periodontitis, an infection in the dental pulp at the root of the tooth, typically caused by caries. According to study author Dr. John Liljestrand, “Acute coronary syndrome is 2.7 times more common among patients with untreated teeth in need of root canal treatment than among patients without this issue.”5
However, if a caries-induced infection has the ability to nearly triple your risk of heart disease, it seems reasonable that a chronic infection around a dead tooth would be just as bad, if not worse, since the tooth is necrotic and therefore likely to be even more toxic.
So, while this study suggests the answer is to perform a root canal on the tooth with an infected pulp, the reality is that the root canal will not solve the problem and may actually make it worse. In another, albeit small, study,6 researchers investigated whether root canals and removal of wisdom teeth might indeed contribute to chronic inflammation. According to the authors:
“[C]hemokine overexpression in the jawbone connected to root canaled teeth seems to be a possible danger for immune preservation, which is needed to maintain a balanced system and to prevent different types of systemic diseases.
Improper wound healing in old extraction sites and underneath root canaled teeth might also provoke immune modulation, which hinders the restoration of an already disease-modified immune system.”

Anecdotal Cancer Story — Throat Cancer Cleared by Removing Root Canaled Teeth

Cancer may also be triggered by infected teeth. Rau claims that 97 percent of the breast cancer patients between the ages of 30 and 70 tested at the Paracelsus Academy in Switzerland, where he is medical director, were found to have “a root canal or a toxic situation in their teeth.”
Similarly, Tennant claims 96 percent of the last 60 cancer patients seen in his practice were found to have an infected tooth. Smith, meanwhile, recounts the story of one of his dental patients who came in with Stage 4 throat cancer. Smith observed the cancer was situated near two root canaled teeth.
He removed the two teeth and treated the extraction site with ozone. The patient was also given some homeopathic remedies and ionic silver to take. In three weeks, the cancer had completely resolved, and the remission was confirmed with blood work, PET scans and visual inspection. “This is the impact of toxic root canaled teeth,” Smith says.

All Root Canals Are a Source of Infection to Some Degree

According to Rau, root canals are “sources of infection, without any exception.” To support this claim, the medical experts in the film cite a number of toxicological investigations that found 100 percent of extracted root canaled teeth were in fact laden with hazardous bacteria.
As noted by Levy, “The science shows that root canals are always infected. The only differentiation is some are a little more toxic and infected than other ones.” The reason why not everyone with a root canal suffers in noticeable ways has to do with the fact that the response to toxins vary from person to person. Some are constitutionally “hardier” than others to begin with. Your overall toxic load from other environmental exposures also comes into play.

Removing a Root Canaled Tooth Must Be Done Properly

While removing a root canaled tooth may be the answer in some cases, this must not be done willy-nilly. You need to make sure your dentist understands the implications and is familiar with holistic dental procedures. To locate a biological (holistic) dentist, see the listing below.
Extracting the tooth is just the first step. Next, the area must be drained and cleaned of bacteria. Ozone gas is by many holistic dentists considered indispensable during this step, as the gas is able to permeate the bone and gum tissue, killing the infection. The periodontal ligament also needs to be removed in order to allow for the jawbone to properly regrow and completely seal the hole where the tooth was.
If the extraction site is not meticulously cleaned and disinfected (and this goes for any tooth extraction, not just root canaled teeth), a cavitation — a pocket in the jawbone filled with bacteria — may form. Failure to remove the periodontal ligament also contributes to cavitations by preventing the bone from properly regrowing.
After the root canaled tooth has been extracted, you’ll want to allow your jawbone to heal completely. In most cases, this will take at least three months. Once your dentist has confirmed that there’s no cavitation, you can proceed with dental replacement.
As noted in the film, there are a number of options for how to replace the missing tooth at this point, including the following. To learn more about these options, see “Safer and Healthier Alternatives to Root Canals and Other Common Tooth Restoration Techniques.”

Not replacing the tooth.
A removable bridge.


A traditional bridge, which requires creating crowns for the teeth on each side of the missing tooth. A significant drawback to this is that you’re sacrificing two (in many cases) healthy teeth, and increasing the risk of those teeth needing a root canal later on. What’s more, the average bridge lasts only eight years, with a range of five to 15 years.


A resin-bonded bridge, also known as a Maryland bridge, which holds the pontic (false tooth) in place by bonding a frame to the backside of the adjoining teeth.



This is the preferred option by many holistic dentists as it does not involve damaging the adjacent teeth. A drawback is that the bridge is only as strong as the adhesive, so it may detach and need to be rebonded from time to time. It’s also not suitable for missing molars due to the forces placed on the bridge during chewing.


An implant-supported bridge, which can be a good option in cases where two or more adjacent teeth are missing.



An implant — Traditional implants have used titanium, but today there are also zirconia (a type of ceramic) implants. Titanium can in some cases trigger autoimmune problems. There is a blood test7 to help determine this sensitivity.


Being a metal, titanium can also contribute to galvanic currents in your mouth, and will distort the energy flow in the meridian flowing through that tooth. While most people do not notice galvanic currents, others experience unexplained nerve shocks, ulcerations, a salty or metallic taste or a burning sensation in their mouth. Galvanic currents may also contribute to insomnia, brain fog, ear-ringing, epilepsy and dizziness.


What’s more, if you drink fluoridated water or use fluoridated toothpaste, it is important to know that fluoride severely accelerates the corrosion of titanium. Low pH in your mouth due to acidity or dry mouth further accelerates this effect.8


Your best option for an implant is to use a zirconia implant. Zirconia is considered far more biocompatible and is typically recommended by holistic dentists.

Carefully Consider Your Options

In my video on root canals, posted above, I discuss some of the health effects I suffered from an infected tooth, which were resolved after having the tooth extracted. It’s important to recognize that the reason you get cavities and/or infected teeth in the first place is related to your diet, primarily eating too much sugar. If your diet is inadequate, your immune function will be compromised, and if your immune system is weakened, the bacteria’s ability to wreak havoc is magnified.
Now, should you happen to have one or more root canaled teeth, this does not mean you have to rush to extract them. It does mean, however, that it would be wise to remember this fact should you start to experience a chronic health problem, and to take it into consideration when deciding on a treatment plan for a chronic health issue.
Also, if you’re considering having a root canal done, evaluate the data and your personal situation, such as your health risks, before making your decision. I would also suggest considering ozone therapy before getting a root canal or tooth extraction done.
Ozone therapy is typically administered through a syringe, right into or around to the base of the tooth. Multiple visits are usually needed to address the infection. Ozone is directly toxic to infectious material, and it also stimulates your immune system. I was able to prevent a root canal by using ozone therapy. It took about five treatments. It’s safe, nontoxic, and relatively inexpensive, so it may be worth considering before taking more drastic measures.
That said, if the pulp tissue has completely died due to infection, nothing, including ozone, will bring the tooth back to life, at which point a root canal or extraction are your only options.

Sail Through Life With a Cosmic Perspective ~ Paul Bonea

Sail Through Life With a Cosmic Perspective.

By Paul Bonea.

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

https://wakeup-world.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Sail-Through-Life-With-a-Cosmic-Perspective-1.jpg

.

It’s so easy to be sidetracked in life and miss the bigger picture, to look at what others have achieved and wonder, “What have I done this whole time?” But all feelings of inadequacy you experience are caused by losing yourself in the minutia of human life: the race be more productive, more successful, to get ahead.
Sure, those things are important, but only to a point. If you concentrate on them too much, you risk ignoring the forest for the trees. You’ll feel guilty for not being as successful as you dreamed to be, envious of people who are, or bitter if you put in the work and sweat, but things don’t seem to click.
If that happens, stop a minute. Zoom out, and look at the bigger picture:
Your own life is a miracle. At the moment, we do not know for sure if complex lifeforms (meaning bacteria and above) exist on other planets. As far as intelligent life goes, the odds can be as low as 1 in 100,000,000 planets (maybe even lower).
Viewed on a cosmic scale, the existence of a single human, you, is wondrous.
But what makes this even better, is that you are not a single wonder. As you are reading this, 7 billion other souls are breathing the same air as you, to say nothing of all the other living beings on our planet.
Why does this matter? Because you do not exist to be alone. No human exists independent of humankind, even hermits.
If you see humankind as a whole, and track it’s evolution and progress in history, you’ll notice that (almost) everybody participated to push our species further, to learn more, to better ourselves. And they did so simply by existing, and trying to make a better life for themselves and people they hold dear.
Some estimate that the total sum of humans that have ever existed is over 100 billion. Out of these, only a few thousands are celebrated and mentioned. A vastly higher number are not, even though they certainly deserve it.
But all humans have played a part in taking us from sticks and stones, to rockets and the Internet. Past generations didn’t build them directly, but they made the stepping stones that later generations needed to climb on.
And the result of this work and toil is nothing short of amazing. To put it into perspective, the average American of 2018 has a far superior quality of life compared to the wealthiest king in the 1850’s.
Once you view mankind as a whole, you realise that no human can live without affecting another. It doesn’t matter if they live 2000 years apart, or 2000 km apart.
A well lived normal life will ripple across time and space to impact the lives of countless others. You will likely never know how many lives your actions will improve, and nor will the people who benefit know how much you helped them.
 
And that’s ok. It is estimated that the total number of humans who have ever lived exceeds 100 billion. It’s impossible to remember them all, so we celebrate just a few thousand “great people” at most.
But even these celebrated few are periodically forgotten and replaced by newcomers.
In fact, chances are that the most famous and successful people alive today will be entirely forgotten in 500 or 600 years from now, except for a few passionate history buffs.
This might sound deeply depressing if you thought you were somehow special. But there’s another way to look at things:
Nobody is pressuring you to be the greatest, except yourself.
Getting to terms with both the rare wonder that is your existence, but also it’s fleetingness and insignificance, will ease the stress you place on yourself, and allow you to connect to the only real thing: the Now.
Viewing your life from a cosmic perspective is both a choice, and a journey of self discovery, that is unique to you. Still, here are a few places to start:
1) Don’t work to earn things, but work to become a better you
It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that the more goods you own, the happier you will be.
To a point, that’s true. You can’t be happy if you have to constantly worry about surviving until the end of the month.
But what really brings enjoyment to life and contentment is becoming a better person, either through learning about the world, or acquiring new skills.
The people who most enjoy life do things that challenge them to learn, to grow. Often times, this brings material rewards as well, often times more than if they had simply worked for these from the start.
2) Learn how the world works
Socrates famously said “The unexamined life is not worth living.” He uttered this phrase after he was sentenced to death by the Athenians, for questioning the nature and existence of the gods, and corrupting the youth.
In another great philosophical work, Plato claims in Phaedo (through the voice of Socrates), that philosophy is nothing but a preparation for death.
When it comes down to it, all of the material goods we will ever own simply make our lives more comfortable, but not more meaningful.
There is nothing shameful in wanting a better material life, indeed it is desirable. But our lives are short, and we owe to ourselves to learn, as much as it is possible, where we have come from, and where we are going.
3) Enjoy the people in your life
On a more worldly note, countless studies have shown that what truly brings us happiness is doing good for others, and nurturing our relationships with other people in our life.
Biologically, we’re built to be sociable. Our entire evolutionary history has us living in packs, ranging in size from a few dozens to millions. Embrace this side of you, keep in touch with friends, distant family. Be the first to call, even if they don’t. It might seem like you’re doing it for them, but in reality, everyone benefits.

Why Heart Disease is the Leading Cause of Death – and How to Avoid It ~ Makia Freeman.

 

Why Heart Disease is the Leading Cause of Death – and How to Avoid It

Makia Freeman

Contributing writer for Wake Up World


February 14, 2019.
 
 
Heart disease is not just the leading cause of death in the USA, but also in the whole world. It’s not just the leading cause of death for men, but also for women. Heart disease is not just one disease. It’s a whole group of diseases which affect the circulatory system and include cardiovascular disease and conditions like high/low blood pressure. So what really causes it – and what can you do about it?

What You May Hear From Western Doctors on Heart Disease

What does Western Medicine have to say about heart disease? That it can’t be cured, of course, just like they say all major diseases like cancer can’t be cured. What else? Often, it’s just advice like this, which is a half-truth or limited hangout: they’ll tell you that you can eat anything – anything! – you want, just as long as you stop smoking and take statins. Big Pharma and all those who serve it have nothing to gain from you being educated about health and the body.
All Roads Lead to the Heart
The heart is your central organ and is closely involved in the workings of your circulatory system. The arteries that take oxygen-rich blood from your heart to your muscles and extremities, and the veins that take oxygen-depleted blood back, are all part of this system, as is your blood itself. So, ailments such as clogged arteries and high blood pressure are all related to heart disease. For instance, when your arteries are clogged, your heart has to work harder to push the blood around your body, which can cause it to strain. High blood pressure is indicative of blood that is too thick or sludgy and does not flow around the arteries/veins easily, again leading to heart strain. In many ways, all roads lead to the heart.

Heart Disease: The Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Myth

So, do people just get clogged arteries and high blood pressure for no reason? No, of course not. There is a cause, just as there is a cure. However, Western Medicine is too focused on pushing pills and stopping symptoms rather than educating patients and addressing the underlying cause. For decades, health officials and medical professionals have told us that heart disease is caused by saturated fat and cholesterol. This sprung from the skewed research of Dr. Ancel Keys as I detailed in the article Plastic Oils vs. Saturated Fats: Busting the Propaganda. Keys demonized these essential nutrients, despite the fact that your brain is mostly composed of saturated fat and that cholesterol is a crucial structural component of your cells. Cholesterol helps with respiratory and gastrointestinal problems, creates vitamin D and is part of the healing mechanism of your body. The misinformation about saturated fat and cholesterol was seized upon by the American Heart Association (AHA) (funded by Procter & Gamble, makers of the hydrogenated oil Crisco, and of which Keys was a board member). They went on TV to falsely claim that a diet with large amounts of butter, lard, eggs and beef would lead to coronary heart disease.

The Cholesterol Myth Continues – Dangerous Statins

Sadly, the “saturated fat and cholesterol are bad for you” myth continues today, with some esteemed doctors commenting that the testing and treating of cholesterol is the biggest medical fraud around! It underpins the propaganda that Big Pharma uses to push one its favorite drugs of choice: statins. In 2017, the CDC found that about 28% of American men and women over age 40 take a statin. Statins are very dangerous: they block cholesterol production but an international study found that 39% of men and 34% of women who have had heart disease have high triglycerides or fat levels, so what’s the point? Exercise makes the heart grow stronger, but statins block the adaptation of the heart to get stronger and the body to produce more mitochondria/energy. Be Brain Fit explains that statins decrease the production of CoQ10, a nutrient that protects both the heart and the brain. Memory loss is a documented side effect of statin drugs; they are also implicated in dementia and Alzheimer’s. The FDA requires that warning labels state that statins can cause memory loss as well as mental confusion, liver problems and type 2 diabetes. Statins can lead to diabetes at an alarming rate; research has found that nearly half of women who take them eventually develop diabetes, and to come full circle, diabetes is a disease which greatly increases your risk of dementia.

The Real Causes of Heart Disease: 

Oxidation, Inflammation, Deficiency and Stress

The causes of heart disease are not to be found by obsessing over saturated fat and cholesterol, but rather looking at oxidation, inflammation, deficiency/depletion (lack of essential nutrients) and – the biggest one – stress. This includes both physical and mental stress. These causes often reinforce each other. While we need to feel stress occasionally to be motivated to change something, chronic or long-term stress taxes our heart. Stress takes us out of our parasympathetic nervous system (relaxed state) and puts us into our sympathetic nervous system (fight-or-flight state). It burns up the crucial nutrients we need for growth and our immune system. Stress produces the cortisol and adrenaline hormones; cortisol lowers our immunity and adrenaline increases our blood pressure.

Stressed Out

Some people are so chronically stressed that they skip high quality foods and start eating large amounts of junk food, consuming more processed sugar, smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol (oxidation). These kind of lifestyle choices further tax our heart by depriving the body of essential nutrients (deficiency) and in the particular case of cigarettes activate the sympathetic nervous system again. Processed food is especially problematic, because it is almost always way high in sodium and missing any fresh fruit or vegetables which are high in potassium. Science has shown that a potassium-sodium imbalance caused by missing potassium is the cause of high blood pressure, the main cause of stroke and contributes to heart disease.

Chronic Inflammation

Too much stress and poor lifestyle choices unfailingly lead to chronic inflammation. Acute or short-term inflammation is the body’s healthy response to a wound, but chronic inflammation is a big problem. It’s the basis for many illnesses including a lot of autoimmune diseases and diabetes, obesity, depression, cancer and, naturally, heart disease. It is especially noteworthy to realize that the foods that promote the most inflammation are hydrogenated, trans or “plastic” oils, refined grains and processed sugar – some of which are promoted by the AHA! We live in an upside-down world where white is black and black is white, so it’s very important to think for yourself and not just blindly follow a package label (“Healthy Heart”) or an institution with a nice-sounding name.

Natural Cures, Remedies and Solutions for Heart Disease

So, now that you understand that real causes of heart disease, what are the natural solutions? To begin with, reduce oxidation and aging by introducing more antioxidants into your diet, including C60, berries, nuts, potatoes, cacao and the Indian and Italian spices. Tackle inflammation by making your diet more anti-inflammatory. Here are tips on how to defeat chronic inflammation.
Counter deficiency by eating nutrient-rich food. Some people take mineral supplements due to their belief that the soil is depleted and that their food doesn’t contain the levels of nutrients it used to (even if it is organic). Try supplementing with nascent iodinemagnesium oil and colloidal copper. One of the best natural heart medicines is HB Extract (a wildcrafted and organic formula of 11 natural herbs) which has helped people get off their petrochemical Big Pharma meds for good.
Ditch your statins. This 2012 study found that just 20 minutes of daily meditation was 5 to 11 times more beneficial than statins in reducing heart disease! Take up other stress-reducing exercises, such as yoga, tai chi, listening to music, hanging out with friends and family, spending more time in nature and spending less time on a screen.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, don’t look at saturated fat and cholesterol like Western Medicine tells you. Look at oxidation, inflammation, deficiency and stress. Remember that everything has a cause and effect. You don’t just magically get heart disease for no reason. You have a lot of control over it. Decide carefully what you put into your body. Make wise lifestyle choices. Don’t buy into AHA propaganda that all saturated fat and cholesterol are the bad guys. Likewise, don’t buy into similar Big Pharma propaganda that statins will relieve you of heart disease, since they actually rob you of your vitality.

In The Information Age, You Get What You Create ~ Phillip J. Watt

In The Information Age, You Get What You Create.

By Phillip J. Watt

Guest writer for Wake Up World

February 12th, 2019



 

 
We have never had such a grand opportunity to be healthy, happy and free in our so-called civilised history, especially in the western world. Whilst ideological and debt enslavement are very real types of modern slavery, the information that we can access from the hand-sized library that exists in our pockets or bags can help to emancipate us from our suffering, if we so choose.
And given the marvellous innovation of the internet and the information it stores, the extreme levels of sickness, sadness and stress are a very disturbing reflection of our modern age.
Tribal cultures in many cases lived more wholesomely than the majority of people today. Granted, because they didn’t have access to modern surgery and other technologies the original people’s didn’t live as long, but more often than not they were philosophically and practically wise well beyond our current collective consciousness.
They had a quality of life that is completely unmatched by the current standard, even if they didn’t have the same quantity of life.
And who wants to live longer if they’re constantly suffering anyway. That suffering isn’t just limited to the many socioeconomic issues in less financially wealthy areas on our planet, but also the physical, psychological, emotional, philosophical and spiritual sicknesses in the more rich regions, especially the western world.
So make no mistake: we are collectively sick. We are divided and fighting each other. We are toxic in mind, body and spirit. We are plagued with disease. We are philosophically incoherent. We are sad and stressed. And we are lost little children forgetting to play in this magically, mad playground.
Sure, the design of the system does generate this. Corporate media creates an uniformed populace. Curriculums indoctrinate children into the status quo instead of teaching self-discovery and health and life skills. People in government allow corporations and the ultra-rich to control macro policy. Pharmaceutical monopolies suppress natural cures and tout toxic alternatives. Mainstream food and water supplies are poisonous. The profits of money creation by central and commercial banks go to private stakeholders instead of funding public infrastructure and social programs.
The list goes on.
It’s called structural sickness. With a system constructed like this, huge numbers of people are going to be dis-eased and in despair. Yet putting the blame on the politicians, the financial elite, the corporations or just the system itself is just another form of sickness because it’s We, the People, who allow it to be this way.
If we banded together to change it, it would. Instantly.
So until we do this, we need to take immense care of ourselves. It’s way more challenging than what it should be, but it has to be done to restore and protect our health. After all, every individual always has the ultimate responsibility and authority over themselves, even if they were born into an inherently ill society.
Now of course you might contract an illness outside of your control. It could be energetic, genetic, epigenetic or born from the pollutants in the air, earth, food or water. However, there is an empowered response you can have. For example, a friend of mine was recently diagnosed with advanced cancer. I called her to express my empathy and her response was:
“It was the wake up call I needed. I had let myself get too stressed, but it’s all good because I’ve fucking got this.”
She’s doing all types of treatments in response, including mainstream and alternative ones. She’s not letting the sick medical system dictate how she will treat herself, instead she’s intelligently responding with agency.
It’s a story that so many people could learn from.
Yet, regardless of whatever ways you’re personally struggling, there are actions you can take. For example:
  • Re-educate yourself: Indoctrination and propaganda are very real, and we’ve all fallen subject to it to varying degrees. Therefore, question all your beliefs. Research beyond the mainstream narratives and dogmas. Redesign your mind and heart in ways which are healthy for both you, and those around you.
  • Detoxify your body: Take specific minerals to cleanse yourself. Eat a toxin-free, plant-dominant diet. Eat free-range, organic meat (if you’re an omnivore). Stretch and exercise. Drink clean water.
  • If you don’t like your job, change it: Many people hate the work they do, but don’t do anything about it. You might not be able to change it overnight, but you can study to lead you on a new path. And in the meantime, take a less stressed approach to it. After all, stress kills, so your health will benefit and therefore thank you with a happier mind and body.
  • Spend money on your health: Healthy forms of recreation are a good way to balance out the stressors of the rat race, however you need to invest some of your money in your own health. Buy better food and eat less. Drink less alcohol and get out in nature more. Buy cheap minerals like Iodine to cleanse the toxins from your body. Invest your time and money in a service from a mental or physical health clinician, to invest in your wellbeing.
  • Redesign your body-brain: The neurology that runs through our entire body, including in the second brain (located in the digestive system), can be rewired in healthier and happier ways. Clinical research has conclusively proven that meditation and hypnotherapy (or other mindfulness practices) can quickly and easily break poor patterns and habits, cure mental and physical illness and create a new, more improved you. Think about it like eating, drinking and sleeping: it’s a necessary self-service. Do it.
Ultimately, health is much, much more than just physical and mental health. Subcategories you should consider when assessing and expanding your own levels of self-mastery include physical, psychological, emotional, intellectual, philosophical, sexual, spiritual, behavioural, creational, relational and recreational wellbeing.
So to reiterate, in the age of information we can cleanse our mind and body from the toxins we’ve accumulated and take a preventative approach for our future. That’s our choice. We can also live a life of suffering, if we choose too. Regardless of which choice you make, just remember that it is your choice.
And we all reap what we sow.

Why Our Political Instability Will Continue, and Crisis is OK ~ Mateo Sol.

Why Our Political Instability Will Continue, and Crisis is OK.

By Mateo Sol.


Guest writer for Wake Up World

Febuary 12, 2019

 
.

 

 

Recent events seem to show our world being turned upside down. With political, ecological, economical and religious stress everywhere, we’ve been experiencing one crisis after another, with no end in sight.
Can anything good come out of this?
Although there is currently a wave of change occurring at a global scale, the natural state of human beings is one of crisis.
We are the only living beings (that we know of) that are aware of our own existence, of the changes we go through internally and externally, and how we expect the world should be. We are constantly in the process of going from the known toward the unknown, the familiar towards the unexpected. It’s no surprise that we are constantly in crisis, the crisis of being alive. We feel this crisis in our perpetual states of existentialanxiety,tension, and anguish.

Why is Crisis Necessary?

Our basic spiritual desire to answer the questions “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” are born from the crisis of being alive and not knowing what on earth to do with ourselves.
At a fundamental level, we’re wired to dislike change because it is something we (the ego) can’t control. But our resistance to growth keeps us stranded in a state of stagnation. As a result of this inner stagnation, many of us try to fill this void with all kinds of distractions: work, material consumption, travel, food, socializing, movies, video games, and much more.
The truth is that this abyss within us is always here. But many of us refuse to face this void until we’re forced to, usually through a crisis of sorts.
Every great change in history has occurred in a period of crisis. From Martin Luther King’s revolution and Gandhi’s movement to the French Revolution, the most effective changes have come from the most intense periods of dissatisfaction.
And we’re in such a period right now.
With political and social instability on the rise, we’re starting to see the wide-reaching impacts of chaos and the way it breaks apart our old patterns and paradigms.
Have you ever noticed that when everything is static, we as a collective feel socially indifferent to any particular view? As a result, not much change is possible. But when chaos arises, change is not only inevitable, it is destined.
This is why crisis is actually a necessary force. Without it, we would be stuck rotting away in our ingrained habits, beliefs, and structures.
Rethinking our system and structures is expensive, and there are a whole bunch of people who are invested in preserving the status quo. This system is protected by wealthy elites armed with the power of law, privately owned media, large multinational companies, propaganda, the police force, and the army.
The only way that we, as the other “99%” can make a real, soulful change, is through the force of crisis. Crisis is the only thing that can motivate us enough to change the way we think, feel, and behave.
We have come to a point where a new vision is needed. It has never been needed as much as it is now. Not only is our Earth in an ecological crisis due to our abuse of it, we’re also experiencing a severe political crisis with untold future repercussions.
For these old foundations to dissolve, we must lay new foundations. But for the new to be born, there must be some birth pains. That’s what the crisis we currently face really is.

Why Our Political Leaders Are Immature

The history of politics in Western civilization is full of stories featuring power grabbing or, at best, well-intentioned but psycho-spiritually immature leaders.
Genuinely wise, balanced, whole, and mature politicians are rare. Too many leadership choices are motivated by greed and fear and enabled by immaturity, paranoia, and lack of moral development.
Perhaps our political system is a reflection of our society and education systems that teach us to contribute to the “common good” through self-interest. In our society there is little consideration or exploration of what the “good of the whole” might mean or exploring the primordial questions: “How should I live?” and “How should we all live together?”
Yet when we trace back to the origins of politics we realize how divorced it is from its original Socratic intention as the search for the ideal “good life.”
The good life for Socrates had two primary aspects: what he called “the improvement of one’s soul,” and on the other hand, there is the improvement of one’s society. This sort of Socratic knowledge was what he called wisdom.
This pursuit of wisdom cannot be simply legislated or bureaucratically enforced. The government is only an institution, human-made, and cannot provide the wise society that we seek.
Instead at the center of such a cultural and consciousness revolution must be a spiritual, intellectual and moral rebirth of ourselves as individuals; what Socrates disciple Plato referred to as “Periagoge,” or “a turning around of the soul” toward truth, beauty and good.

Why We Desperately Need Mature Action Right Now

The Platonic ideal of finding wise mature leaders and state heads that are lovers of truth and righteousness rather than wealth and power can be exemplified in cultural leaders such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela.
These men were great not so much because they were “special” and unlike us, but precisely the opposite: they exemplified, in concentrated form, what is most human about us. They were aware that the highest form of personal self-actualization comes through serving the growth of the community.
These matured and whole individuals acted almost like crystals of light that were dropped into a toxically charged political system, causing everything to crystallize into a more ordered and harmonious state.
The politicians we have today are spiritually stunted and immature, yet despite this, they continue to get elected. In the end, our leaders are a reflection of us as a society, and as a planet at large. Therefore, our social and ecological health are entirely dependent on our capacity as voters to do some intense soulwork, and go through a genuine process of human maturation.
Only once we have more matured Souls on this planet will we realize that “self-interest” actually includes the concern for other people because we are all interconnected.
The current state of our world brings great despair and anguish to all of us, this is especially true for the old souls with mature hearts among us who feel the rape of society and torture of the earth more intensely.
Mature action involves preserving and protecting all that is left while simultaneously exploring our inner selves and reconnecting to our Souls.
Whether it be political or charitable action, mature action must come from an inner place of humbleness, rather than from a place of “needing to do good” which can easily be tainted with all kinds of needs, such as self-gratification, power, and control – as is the case with so many politicians today.

A Power Surge: Astrology Forecast February 10–17, 2019 ~ Lorna Bevan.

A Power Surge:

 Astrology Forecast February 10–17, 2019 .

Mars — the symbol of life force, libido and action — is hyperactive this week. Not only that but Mars is conjunct both awakeners and disruptors Eris and Uranus at the end of his own sign of Aries square Pluto/South Node of Fate, the Node of Tate and trine Jupiter. Translated: expect volatility, power plays, threats, counter threats, and ultimatums playing out as high drama.

The Chandra Symbol for Mars/Uranus Aries 29: Dr. Jekyll Drinks the Potion


“The unconscious mind holds the seeds of worlds which the conscious mind has yet to penetrate. These worlds can turn from dark to light and back again, but they are there, crying out to be fathomed, accessed, given their part in the dance. It is no longer possible to push into far shadows that part of the light which dwells in darkness. And so you must bring up all of the hidden places. So that nobody can deny how much of your energy and resource indwells the deep and how all of your being longs to be known, to be seen, to be activated, to partake in the dance of life freely.”






The Warrior Mars acts as the forerunner for Uranus’ epochal once-in-84-years shift on March 5th when he enters earthy Taurus on Thursday 14th February — preparing the ground for no going back as reality bites in the clashes of the metaphysical/physical and the tangible/intangible.

Whichever part of your life is represented in your chart by the last degrees of Aries is being activated, stirred, woken up. It’s time to sit up, stay awake and prepare for the summons of the radically new as Uranus returns to Taurus for the first time since 1935 to deliver a seismic electric shock to both the global System and your own system.

New! My March 2019 5D Report, “Reverse Your Unreality”, reveals how you will be impacted by this second of 2019’s three hugely impactful gear-crunching, jarring seismic shocks.

Aries Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




You are right in the thick of the planetary action. First , as an Aries, Mars is your personal ruler. Second, Mars is in your sign until Thursday and third, Mars is conjunct both Eris and Uranus — awakeners and disruptors — this week. Mars will gift you with a surge of energy, libido and life force, giving you the momentum you need to make radical changes that are long overdue. Channel it by being physically active, by taking the initiative, by clearing away anything that you’ve allowed to hold you back and keep you small — house de-cluttering, toxic habits, relationships. This will keep you away from getting into arguments ,creating dramas or saying something you regret in the heat of the moment.

When they go low, you go high.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




Can you feel the rumblings of approaching change and sensing something big just out of sight over the horizon? Are you unsettled, bored with your existing routines, but not sure what to do about it? If so, you’re picking up on awakener Uranus deep in your 12th House — the engine room of your chart — preparing to enter Taurus for the first time since 1935 in 3 weeks’ time and to turn your life inside out. This week Mars prepares the ground, activating your sign on Thursday 14th for the first time in 2 years to give you the impetus, desire and momentum to wake up and smell the coffee. This is all about recharging your physicality, upgrading what you eat, how you move and how you pay attention to your body’s many cries for help.

Spend time in the comfort and care of your own wisdom.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




If you have people to see or places to go, do it before Thursday 14th.That’s when action oriented Mars leaves your zone of helpful people and connections to disappear deep into your hidden 12th House. For the next 6 weeks it will be harder to make progress towards your goals and counter-productive to push the river. Collaborate with the warrior operating behind the scenes in the engine room of your chart by taking stock of where you are now, where you’d like to be and plot a course between them. It may turn out that you re-think your blueprint and with new information, design something far better.

Rein in your Geminian impatience.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




As a sensitive Cancerian, you might find yourself uncomfortable in a week of harsh Mars /Eris /Uranus /Pluto intensity. Both your relationships and your career are in the frame, potentially sending your plans into a tail spin. This is not lighthearted energy, it’s going to feel rather like a damn bursting, releasing all sorts of powerful emotions you didn’t realise you had. Whatever you do, stay right out of dramas and keep your head down. Drop any hard and fast expectations and be ready to be flexible.

As Rumi said: “Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”
Leo Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




As a Leo ,you always benefit from having the Sun in your relationship zone when February 14th comes around. This year, however, the planets are in disruptive mode so be ready to drop any plans you’ve made at a moment’s notice and let the chips fall where they may. Mars is at odds with big hitters Eris, Uranus and Pluto so whatever you do, don’t be tempted to resist what unfolds. In less than 3 weeks’ time, awakener Uranus will cross the pinnacle of your chart for the first time in 84 years to supercharge your career, your purpose and role in the world. Take time out, rest up and start to notice the rumblings of growth and change coming your way.

“All that you are seeking is also seeking you. If you lie still, sit still, it will find you. It has been waiting for you a long time.” — Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Virgo Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




This is likely to be a volatile week of unexpected change coming at you from outside. With warrior Mars lighting the blue touch paper under disruptors Eris and Uranus in your zone of finances and resources, people you deal with might become unreliable or inconsistent or you might receive some news you weren’t expecting. Check the bottom line, look at the figures, plug any leaks. And take heart, in 10 days on February 19th the only Full Moon in your sign this year is a Super Moon, putting the ball firmly back in your court. That’s when you can withdraw from or renegotiate contracts to get a better deal.

Strengthening your foundations.
Libra Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




Since 2011, unpredictable Uranus has been hurling his lightning bolts to reveal others you counted on in an entirely new light. There have been shocks, u-turns, upheavals, broken promises along with some notable triumphs. Happily, the awakener has only 3 weeks more in your relationship zone but before you breathe a sigh of relief, this week warrior Mars lights the blue touch paper under Eris, Uranus and Pluto. So if a partnership — personal or professional — reaches a crunch point or completely wrongfoots you, grit your teeth and remain your usual diplomatic self. Now is definitely not the time to burn bridges behind you.

“Sometimes grace is a ribbon of mountain air that gets in through the cracks.” — Anne Lamott
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




As a sign you are ruled by both Mars and Pluto and so no stranger to deep emotions, reliable gut instincts and x ray vision. And you’ll be experiencing all of these this week as Mars first winds up disruptors Eris and Uranus then moves into your relationship zone on February 14th. Not only that, but the planet of libido and life force is acting as an outrider for Uranus’ return to Taurus on February 19th.There could be passion, romance, a rekindling of cooling embers or confrontations that will be hard to row back from. Rather than permanently burn bridges behind you, take the high ground and sidestep dramas and soap operas. You’ll be glad you did.

Take a conscious pause.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




This week, situations you thought were rock solid could shift under your feet, so drop all linear plans and expectations and be ready to duck and weave. With Mars mixing it up with disruptors Eris and Uranus, people you rely on may be suddenly unreliable, likely to change their minds at a moment’s notice. In the midst of the uncertainty, opportunities will arise to improve your finances and shore up your personal security — don’t let them slip by. Make sure you avoid your tendency to “hoof in mouth” syndrome and don’t say something you’ll regret. In fact, do exactly the opposite and be calm, diplomatic and level headed.

Frame it all as finding out where you stand.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




Events this week will show you — as if you need reminding — that your sign is in the process of great change. Knowing this, drop your resistance and be ready to ride the wave. As inflammatory Mars mixes it with unpredictable volatile disruptors, Eris and Uranus, at the base of your chart while reality planets Saturn and Pluto remove many of your old security structures, your only option is to take a calculated jump into the new and untested. Fortunately, you have Venus in Capricorn to smooth your way which may turn out to be better than you ever anticipated.

As Lao Tzu said so wisely: “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




With the Sun now back in your sign starting off a new cycle for the next year, you should be feeling more at home in your own skin after a long period of ducking and diving to adapt to big changes around you. So don’t be fazed by what appears to be a communications glitch this week when Mars meets fritzy, unpredictable Uranus. Rather than trying to change what seems to you to be other people’s quirks and weird behaviour, let go of control and let them be. On Thursday 14th ,Mars returns to your 4th House of home, roots and belonging, giving you the momentum to start ringing the changes.

Make your mantra: “It is as it is”.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: February 10–17, 2019




This is a week to lie low, stay on the side lines out of the line of fire and take care of your wellbeing. In just over a week the Sun returns to your sign starting your personal New Year, so make the most of this time out to restore your batteries. Forewarned is forearmed as Mars stirs up unpredictable Uranus in your money zone — if there are leaks to be plugged or debts to repay, sort it out once and for all midweek. If people around you are creating emotional dramas, just wait it out and refuse to get involved. By February 19th Chiron will have permanently left your sign after 7 years, gifting you with much more resilience and inner resources.

This, too, will pass.
