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 .

By Lorna Bevan

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

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.

You can subscribe to my monthly 5D Reports at: www.hareinthemoonastrology.co.uk
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.

People-Pleasing: The Hidden Dangers of Always Being “Too Nice” ~ Aletheia Luna

People-Pleasing:

The Hidden Dangers of Always Being “Too Nice”.

By Aletheia Luna

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

February 10th, 2019 

 
 

 

You feel the pressure throb in your veins. A lump rises in your throat as your colleagues watch you closely. They are expecting an answer. They are expecting you to comply. Every fibre of your being wants to scream “NO I CAN’T.” But as if possessed, you automatically smile sweetly and say, “Yes, I’ll do it, thanks for asking.”
WTF is going on here?! Why can’t you just say “no,” and walk away?
If you’re like me, people-pleasing has run havoc in your life. It has crushed your spirit repeatedly. It has robbed you of peace of mind, personal empowerment and the courage to follow your goals and dreams. It has hit you while you’re down and dragged you through the dirt. It might have also contributed to chronic issues in your life such as anxiety disorders, depression, addiction or co-dependency.
So what exactly is people-pleasing … and how can we heal the root cause of it?
16 Habits of People-Pleasing Personality Types
At some point or another, we have all struggled with people-pleasing. After all, as social creatures, we are prone to peer pressure and the desire to fit in. But there is a big difference between the desire for acceptance and people-pleasing. People-pleasing is not just a once-in-a-while foible: it’s a daily struggle.
Here are 16 common habits:
  • You struggle to say “no”
  • You find it hard to be assertive and voice your opinions
  • You’re hyper-vigilant about perceived rejection from others (always on the lookout)
  • You’re an emotophobe (you fear negative emotions)
  • You’re excessively altruistic/philanthropic
  • You often suffer at the expense of doing a favor for others
  • You have a weak sense of self and poor interpersonal boundaries
  • You become emotionally dependent/co-dependent when in relationships/friendships
  • You’re addicted to approval from others
  • You have a neurotic desire to be liked no matter what
  • You feel shattered for days or weeks when someone criticises you
  • You have low self-worth
  • You act based on what “other people think” of you
  • You always put yourself in other’s shoes, but you rarely show compassion towards yourself
  • You blindly believe in other people’s “goodness” even if they are clearly abusive towards you
  • You fear losing control of yourself because you repress so much
It’s also said that people-pleasing can form a bridge to other conditions such as borderline personality disorder and social anxiety disorder.

Why Being “Too Nice” Can Be Dangerous

Obviously there is nothing wrong with being nice. But having the neurotic desire to be nice is dangerous for a number of reasons. Here’s why:

1. You suppress A LOT of emotion

Inevitably, wanting to be loved and needed by others all the time results in suppressing tons of uncomfortable emotions. I’m talking rage, hatred, bitterness, annoyance, grief and stress — anything that is contrary to the altruistic image you crave to portray. You might not be conscious of repressing these types of emotions, but rest assured, it comes with the job description. You can’t give yourself entirely to other people, deny yourself, and expect to feel fine and dandy in the longterm.
Suppression of emotions eventually results in physical or psychological breakdowns. Many chronic mental and physical illnesses are fuelled by the neurotic desire to please others.

2. Extreme pressure to “keep up appearances”

One of the worst things about constantly being nice is the extreme pressure you feel to constantly maintain your self-image. It feels good constantly being on people’s “good” sides. It feels good to avoid negative feelings and get the spotlight for being a saint. But this addiction comes at a price: chronic stress. Often that stress is imperceptible, but it’s always there, always demanding that you keep your mask strapped on even though it might be suffocating you.

3. People use you

When you’re a people-pleaser you open yourself up to abuse. Narcissists, energy vampires, bullies and other types of wounded people are drawn to you like fresh meat. Having weak boundaries, low self-esteem and the insatiable desire to please makes you the perfect “use and abuse” target. And unconsciously, you like feeling needed and wanted, so you unwittingly continue the toxic cycle.
It’s just like what the famous Eurythmics song “Sweet dreams are made of this” says: “Everybody’s looking for something. Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to get used by you. Some of them want to abuse you. Some of them want to be abused …”

4. You have the intense need to be in control

At first, people-pleasing might come across as a selfless act. But people-pleasing is actually a selfish act because you’re trying to control someone else’s reaction towards you by behaving in a certain way.
In fact, people-pleasing is more about the desire to be in control than it is to please other people. Wanting to be liked by others is just a symptom of the desire to be in control because deep down you feel powerless or worthless. This is why people-pleasing is so exhausting — it goes against the flow of life, and takes so much effort to maintain.

5. No one really knows the “true” you

Keeping so much locked inside of you for fear of being disapproved of makes you extremely guarded. In fact, if you’re a people-pleaser you might fear for instance, getting drunk, because all of the secret thoughts and opinions you have might come to the surface. In other words, you’ll no longer be in control of yourself.
When you’re a people-pleaser no one really knows the “true” and authentic you — they only know the facade that you present them with. Unfortunately, this desire to be loved and approved often backfires, making you feel more lonely and disconnected as time goes on. Eventually, you wind up feeling “invisible” and “unseen,” even if you are constantly in the spotlight.

How to Stop Being a People-Pleaser

Naturally you might be wondering right now, “What can I do to stop this?”
Let me tell you, there is so much bad advice out there. And the solution to overcoming this addiction (because it is), is NOT pulling the middle finger at everyone.
I don’t condone the “fuck you” approach because it’s immature and reactive.
Instead, I recommend the harder-but-wiser approach of:
I have linked an appropriate article to each of these four points. Click on whatever point you feel that you most need to work on.
As someone who has struggled with a people-pleasing personality (Enneagram 9 INFJ by the way), I know how self-destructive this trait can be. Because of this need to be accepted by others, I have suffered intense periods of anxiety and chronic pain, not to mention tons of repressed emotions for years.
But the first step to overcoming this problem is to shift your focal point from the outside world, to the inside world. Eventually, with time and practice utilizing the points above, you will be able to say sincerely and openly “I am enough unto myself” as I now can.
Any tips or advice that you have about this issue are welcome below.

A.I. and the Synthetic Reality – a Shamanic Perspective ~ Sergey Baranov

A.I. and the Synthetic Reality.

a Shamanic Perspective 

By Sergey Baranov, Wake Up World

February 8, 2018 


 

 

Horrors and Hopes for the Future – a Shamanic Perspective

Technology is valuable, but must be advanced with great wisdom and caution.
In my recent book, The Mescaline Confession [1], I wrote a chapter about a stark vision I one day received from the Huachuma cactus, warning of a future in which our own technology will devour us.  Huachuma, also known as San Pedro, is a sacred cactus native to the Andes which is shamanically used in Peru and has been for thousands of years.  Its active ingredient is the alkaloid mescaline, which was made known to the world by Aldous Huxley in his book The Doors of Perception [2]. 
Technology, the cactus told me, is not our God — it is our servant. Technology itself is a tool that is neither inherently good nor bad, but technology without wisdom is weaponized stupidity.  Recently, I stumbled upon a profound essay that echoed these revelations quite closely, Why the Future Doesn’t Need Us [3], published by Bill Joy in Wired magazine way back in April, 2000.  Primarily about the potential dangers of giving artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and nanotechnology greater autonomy and control over their given roles, it also critiqued the rabid transhumanist movement, a giddy group, hell-bent on merging our bodies and minds with computer technology in a quest for god-like, never-ending life.  What these people fail to realize is that our short time here already can and does lead to immortality of much greater value, that living and dying cannot be easily separated, and that ancient technologies for understanding the absolutely essential nature of life and death have existed for millennia, upon the very ground on which we stand.
Then quite rudimentary, transhumanism has come a long way in 19 years, attracting growing numbers of devotees seeking to “improve humanity” (but really just their own) by embedding and/or replacing their bodies more and more significantly with tech, making us “better” and even — their primary goal — “immortal”.  Joy’s piece has only become more relevant as we stampede toward the unknown consequences of bio-technological integration.
An eminent computer scientist and co-founder of Sun Microsystems, where he served as chief scientist for over 20 years, Joy is no Luddite and states this very carefully. Indeed, he has contributed over many years to marked increases in the power of software, but this only gives him a more personal sense of responsibility for the darker turns it might take.  While expressing deep concern over the development of modern technologies, he raises important ethical questions which we’d be wise to consider today, similar in theme to those the sacred cactus revealed to me that difficult afternoon in The Sacred Valley.
I was far from this subject until that one Huachuma ceremony four years ago, during which a disturbing, dystopian future was shown to me. I was taken by a vision of the future in which humanity was no longer in charge. It was on the verge of collapse. A species which made it through millions of years of evolution, growing and learning, now faced extinction. It was such a dire, seemingly inescapable fate, that all my being yielded to sadness. What can be done? I was silently asking. What was the solution to a big problem we ourselves are inexorably creating? The answer didn’t come that day, but later I came to understand that the answer was already in my hands, body and spirit.
Like Joy, I am no Luddite, but a line needs to be drawn.  Technology is valuable, but must be advanced with great caution.  As I wrote in The Mescaline Confession:
“I need my phone because it helps me stay connected to my family. At the same time, it also connects me to The Matrix with all its fear and madness. The lives of billions of people are brewing daily in my pocket. This, I thought, was the dark side of technology, which charms us with convenience, but in fact claims our mind. Convenience, I thought, was the Trojan horse allowing the virus to access our minds at virtually any time, a self-terminating virus meant to simulate life to destroy it.”
While some are looking up to psychics, who shake in epileptic seizures, or listen to gurus in white robes and holy preachers, others simply observe the world with open eyes. It is the same world we see every day going to work, but seeing it through a trance-like state which is maintained by certain cultural forces, thus preventing us from seeing naked reality.
John Carpenter demonstrated this in his movie They Live [4], which he wrote and directed in 1988. Ostensibly a science fiction/horror film, it shows a reality in which the ruling class are an alien species, concealing their appearance under human form. Their true, hideous faces and ruthless manipulation of human society could only be revealed through special sunglasses, devised by an underground resistance.  These fresh eyes also exposed subliminal messages embedded in the cultural landscape, demanding that we OBEY, CONSUME and CONFORM.
Leaving the notion of aliens to sci-fi, we do truly live beneath such a deceptive veil. The cultural hypnosis remains rather vivid to those wearing the actual “sunglasses” readily available to all — plant medicine. Besides the growing mechanisms of societal control, as in George Orwell’s 1984 [5] and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World [6], there is another theme which becomes apparent the moment you put on the sanity lenses. You begin to see the rise of mental illness and the legitimization of insanity. Political correctness used as a tool for coercion is often applied to this task. People are used as pawns in social experiments, unwittingly herded together as a doped, human shield against sanity. Psychology misused can become a psychological bio weapon, targeting people from within to turn them against themselves and others. This zombification is happening on a grand scale right now, but the tools with which to do it are becoming more powerful.  The forces behind this are a whole other question, but the fact that our modern world is nurturing madness with increasing precision is obvious and beyond all argument.
The transhumanist agenda’s hysterical craving for eternal life is more likely an insane drive toward what, I believe, will be a human-free future in which cold calculation will rule the world, pushing true humanity to extinction. Perhaps it is nothing more than the same old fear of death.  The idea of uploading human consciousness into a computer in search of immortality is a digital analogue of the religious belief in a heavenly afterlife. The only difference: their version of Heaven is virtual.
The lure of immortality has entranced humanity for thousands of years, but we have always possessed countless ways to attain it.  Many have in fact achieved immortality throughout human history; Classic Greek philosophers, the builders of ancient Egypt, the musicians and writers of medieval ages in Europe and many others have acquired it by making a lasting dent in human history, influencing the way we live and think today. They have become immortals in our minds and culture. On what seems a smaller scale, but I think no less significant, your parents are made immortal by bringing you into this world.  Today, however, with advances in science and technology, immortality has taken on new meaning. Taken literally, the pursuit for everlasting individual life is now running full steam in Silicon Valley, bringing my frightening vision closer to a reality.
The transhuman desire to extend the body and mind with technology is actually a desperate attempt to compensate for a sense of incompleteness that will never be fulfilling.  The incompleteness that they feel is illusory and can only be overcome through self-realization.
Transhumanism wouldn’t be a big concern if prominent tech people such as the figurehead of the movement, Ray Kurzweil, were not involved. Obsessed with transhumanism, Kurzweil is a leading voice in futurism and development, having invented the digital scanner and made many accurate predictions about the course of computer tech. He currently runs Google’s machine learning program.  In his article, Bill Joy recounts an interaction with Ray in a hotel bar, where the latter gave him a partial pre-print of his then forthcoming book, The Age of Spiritual Machines [7].  It outlined a utopia he foresaw – one in which humans gained near immortality by becoming one with robotic technology. Reading it, his sense of unease only intensified; he felt that he understood the negative potential of this “utopia”, understanding the probability of a bad outcome along this path.
It seems unlikely, for example, that transhumanists have given much thought as to what life would bewithout death.  In my first book, Path: Seeking Truth in a World of Lies [8], I recounted my near-death experience in Mexico in 2008, during a peyote ceremony.  Numerous deadly scorpion stings on my thighs took me very close to the precipice between life and death during the three hellish days that followed.  I believed that I was dying during much of this time, giving me a deep insight into the vital, inextricable relevance that our inevitable death has to life.  Death, I learned, is my friend:  the overarching motivator to truly live.  Without death, I realized, we wouldn’t seek to achieve the things that we do with the urgency that our brief existence in this world demands.  Life’s vibrancy is in fact dependent on its inescapable demise.  Death makes us human.
The delusion of digital utopia provided by AI has raised concerns in many people, among them the firebrand technologist, Elon Mask, but his solution may lead to deeper problems.  In a recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, when asked about the danger of AI, Musk responded that he’d warned influential people, including then US president Barack Obama, of the dangers inherent in advancing the technology — that it’s the genie in the bottle. His warning sadly fell on deaf ears.  This, he indicated, partly inspired the creation of his new company, Neuralink Neurotechnology, in order to develop an implantable brain – computer interface.  Through symbiosis with artificial intelligence Musk believes we might withstand the existential threat to humanity posed by unchecked AI, enabling us to compete — or at least keep up — with our mysterious new silicon children.  Musk believes that the merging of humans and machines is inevitable, saying that if we cannot stop it, we should join it.  Joy asks in his article, “Given the incredible power of these new technologies, shouldn’t we be asking how we can best coexist with them?’’  Musk’s answer is to become, at least somewhat, more like them.
But can this “can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” approach have a dark side?  While Musk’s Neuralink is apparently purely motivated and no doubt has positive applications, the potentials for its abuse are vast and terrifying.  With it, we are fast approaching a time where we will be able to order, for example, a pizza, by mere thought.  Since Neuralink and its like will almost certainly come to know our sub-conscious better than we think we can, it will soon be able to present us with a pizza delivery we didnt even know we wanted!  It will literally read our minds at depths of which we are rarely conscious, “Well, what do you know! I was hungry!”
Just as the inventors of the wheel did not conceive of them rolling under the tanks that crushed life in Tiananmen Square, there are surely dire consequences that will stem from the optimistic invention of Neuralink and AI.  Consequences of which we cannot presently conceive.  Those that we can conceive of are bad enough!  For example, as I write, people’s expressed thoughts can and are being used against them, destroying their lives.  A half-dazed, midnight tweet can ruin you.  And here we are, fast approaching a time when all of our most private contemplations, conscious or not, will be available to the elites as weapons to be used against us.  We are what we do, of course, not what we think.  We have broad imaginations, but are blessed with the moral ability to choose the ethical course of action.
Think about that, honestly…  As morally upright a human being as you may be, have you not had thoughts that, if exposed, might have ruined your relationships or social standing?  Wishing your neighbour ill, for example.  Many if not all of you have thought such “evil” things, some time, under certain circumstances.  How many more such dark ideas might you be suppressing beneath your consciousness?  As it advances, Neuralink mach 2, 3 or 8 will learn to see them, regardless.  It would be foolish to think we could keep our neuralink just between us and our PC.  Even now, your phone transmits all manner of information, from your very location to your favorite color to your heart rate.  Perhaps as soon as 2024, five years from now, our least compassionate “superiors” will possess a more powerful tool to find and prosecute “thought crime” than Orwell dared to imagine in his 1984
This rather depressing sentiment made me think of another strategy:  What if we humans form a resistance and collectively reject the notion itself?  I myself have no desire whatsoever to install any kind of silicone implant in my body in order to function “better” and compete with my calculator.  This is why I have the calculator, so it can do the calculation for me.  Most certainly I don’t want to become it.  Rather, I prefer to spend time in nature and use sacred plants which are the best link we have to an organic life on Earth.  The more I do it, the less I want to become a cyborg.  This is the technology that guides me toward my highest potential.  From the shamanic perspective, transhumanism appears to be a kind of cosmic virus which ironically promises life extension, but in fact threatens human life as we know it.
Thankfully, the earth has provided us with plant medicines which are the perfect antidote to the cosmic virus.  Human power structures, however, particularly in Western society, have made these psychoactive agents of our species’ immune system illegal!  They banned the cure!  Springing freely from the soil, plant medicines are the antibodies we need to combat spiritual disease.  With plant medicines we can embrace seemingly ephemeral, human life as it is.  They can easily help us to understand clearly the error of the transhumanist course and steer away from it, avoiding the surrender of too much decision-making to heartless, glorified calculators in the name of our precious, temporary convenience.  They teach us that it is mere egomania to attempt to literally live forever.
The more of us that experience the loving awareness provided by the whole plant Huachuma, the solution that I have found, the stronger our collective sanity becomes.  MAPS, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, and other organizations like it, are growing in size, respectability and influence. After countless years of spiritual human-plant connection — briefly paused by the rise of a relatively recent, consumerist machine — the plants are finally making their way back to the main stage.  We can only spread the word and hope that they reach enough people before we spiral ever deeper into mechanistic notions of “improved” existence.  I believe we may yet be shown the light before we are destroyed by our ever-increasing concessions to convenience.  There is nothing convenient about the end of our beautiful species.  We’re fine just the way we are.  We only need to realize it.  The technology to do so is, and always has been, close at hand.

Dandelion Tea Helps Improve Your Liver Function, Digestion and More ~ Dr. Joseph Mercola

Dandelion Tea Helps Improve Your Liver Function, Digestion and More.

By Dr. Joseph Mercola, Wake Up World.

February 9, 2019.

 
.

 

 

Some people think that dandelion is nothing but a pesky weed that can ruin a perfectly groomed garden, while others consider it one of the most useful gifts from nature. While it’s true that dandelion may not always grow in the desired location, this resilient plant actually has plenty of health benefits to offer.
In fact, the earliest mention of dandelion as a medicinal herb dates back to the 10th and 11th centuries in the Middle East. It was also used in traditional Chinese medicine to ease liver problems and other health issues. From its roots to the flowers, almost all parts of the humble dandelion can be used to make tea, soups, coffee and other concoctions that can give your health a boost.

What Is Dandelion Tea?

Dandelion tea is an herbal tea that’s made from the roots and leaves of dandelion. Some people also use its blossoms to make a tea that’s more delicate in flavor. Aside from the difference in flavor profile, the nutritional and medicinal value of dandelion tea may also differ depending on the parts that were used to make it.
Dandelion leaf tea is often consumed for its diuretic properties, while tea made from dandelion roots is known for its ability to help stimulate the appetite and relieve liver and gallbladder problems. The flowers and stems of dandelion may also be added into the tea mixture for additional nutrients.
The flavors and nutritional profile of dandelion tea also depend on the season when the roots or leaves are harvested. Dandelion leaves are usually picked during the spring, while the roots are often harvested in autumn or winter, since they’re believed to be sweeter during these seasons.
Since dandelions are widely available and are extremely simple to grow, you can easily harvest them to make a tea of your own from fresh ingredients. You may also opt to buy tea bags made from dried organic dandelion roots or leaves. Whichever part of dandelion you choose to brew, rest assured that you’ll get plenty of nutrients from a cup of this herbal drink.

9 Remarkable Health Benefits of Dandelion Tea

With all the publicity that dandelion tea has been getting lately, one of the questions that has probably crossed your mind is, “What exactly is dandelion tea good for?” To answer that question, check out the long list of benefits that you can get from dandelion root or leaf tea:
1. Helps soothe digestive problems — Dandelion tea has been used for centuries to help relieve minor digestive problems, such as heartburn and indigestion. It may also help relieve constipation, since it stimulates bowel movement with its diuretic properties.
2. Helps maintain proper liver function — Dandelion tea is considered a “liver tonic,” since it helps detoxify the liver and improve the flow of bile. A recent study also shows that the water-soluble polysaccharides from dandelion root may help protect the liver from hepatic injury.
3. Helps reduce water retention — Drinking dandelion tea may help reduce bloating, as it can flush out excessive water weight from your body by increasing your urine output. A study conducted in 2009 showed that the first two cups of dandelion tea can cause a significant increase in the frequency of urination within a period of five hours.
4. Helps improve kidney and gallbladder function — Dandelion tea may help improve the health of your kidneys and reduce your risk of developing gallstones by flushing out toxins, salt and excess water through increased urine production.
5. Aids in the management of diabetes — Researchers suggest that dandelion root may help normalize blood sugar levels and reduce bad cholesterol, so drinking tea made from its extracts may be beneficial for diabetics.
6. Helps improve heart health — Dandelion leaves are a great source of potassium, so drinking its extract may provide your body with traces of this essential mineral, which is important for your heart health, as it helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure levels.
7. Helps reduce the risk of cancer — At least one study shows that dandelion root extract may help induce apoptosis in cancer cells without affecting the noncancerous cells in your body.
8. Helps relieve inflammation — Dandelion tea provides anti-inflammatory properties, which may help alleviate swelling and other health issues related to inflammation.
9. Helps reduce your risk for obesity — A study published in the Journal of Nutrition Research and Practice found that dandelion may aid weight loss by inhibiting the activity of pancreatic lipase.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, drinking roasted dandelion root tea may be beneficial for coffee lovers who are trying to cut down their caffeine intake, as it tastes relatively similar to coffee.

Caffeine Content of Roasted Dandelion Root Tea

As mentioned above, roasted dandelion root tea is an excellent natural coffee substitute, hence why it’s often called “dandelion coffee.” But the question is, does it have any caffeine content?
While it tastes and looks relatively similar to real coffee, roasted dandelion root tea does not contain caffeine, which is why it’s great for those who are sensitive to this compound. However, like coffee, it can also provide plenty of antioxidants, plus other valuable vitamins and minerals.

How to Make a Cup of Fresh Dandelion Tea

Looking for an inexpensive substitute to store-bought dandelion root tea bags? Look no further than the dandelions in your organic garden. You can put these plants to good use by making your own cup of tea. Here’s how you can make dandelion tea using its fresh leaves, according to a recipe from Mama’s Homestead:
Ingredients
  • Six dandelion leaves
  • Water
Optional
  • Slice of lemon or orange
  • Raw honey, to sweeten
Procedure
  1. Collect around six pieces of young and tender dandelion leaves. Wash them thoroughly under running water, then pat them dry with a paper towel.
  2. Cut the leaves into small pieces then put them in a cup.
  3. Pour boiling water and steep for five to 10 minutes.
You may opt to drink your dandelion tea as is or serve it with a slice of lemon or orange. You may also sweeten it with honey, but make sure that you only add in a small amount to avoid overloading your body with fructose.

Hearty and Comforting Dandelion Tea Recipe That You Should Try

Aside from making a simple cup of dandelion tea, there are other ways to enjoy this herbal drink. Here’s a delicious and comforting chai recipe from The Kitchn that you will surely enjoy sipping on:

Dandelion and Chicory Chai

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground roasted dandelion root tea
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground chicory root
  • 2 black peppercorns, cracked
  • 2 green cardamom pods, cracked
  • 1 whole clove
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
  • 1/2 cup raw, unpasteurized milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Procedure
  1. Combine the water, dandelion root, chicory root, peppercorns, cardamom, ginger, clove and cinnamon in a saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and then simmer for five minutes.
  2. Add the milk and honey, then increase the heat to medium and bring to a boil. Keep the saucepan uncovered.
  3. Remove the mixture from the heat and strain it into a cup. Discard the solid particles, and serve the drink immediately.
The recipe above is not only rich in flavors, but filled with nutrients too. It takes only a few minutes to make, and is great for a single serving. You can easily double the ingredients if you want to make more for your family or friends.

Here’s How You Can Store Dandelion Tea for Later Use

You don’t need to brew your dandelion root or leaf tea all at once after harvest, because you can actually preserve and store these ingredients for a long time, as long as you dry them first.
When drying dandelion roots, make sure that you wash each root thoroughly before chopping them into small pieces. You may use a dehydrator to dry the chopped roots, or you may simply place them outside under the hot sun until they’re all dried out. Once dry, put the roots in an airtight glass jar and store in a dry place, out of direct sunlight.
Preserving dandelion leaves is easier. You just need to wash the leaves thoroughly and pat them dry with a paper towel. Spread the clean leaves on a tray, and then leave them in a warm room or air cupboard to dry. Be sure to turn the leaves occasionally. After they’re all dried up, store them in an airtight glass jar out of direct sunlight.

Common Side Effects of Dandelion Tea

Dandelion leaf or root tea is considered generally safe to consume. However, it may cause allergic reactions like itching, rashes and runny nose in people who are allergic to ragweed and other related plants, including chamomile, chrysanthemums and marigold.
If you’re taking medications or supplements, make sure that you consult your doctor before drinking dandelion tea, as it may interact with several drugs. This herbal drink is also not recommended for people with kidney problems and gallbladder disorders.

Make Sure That Your Dandelion Tea Comes From Safe and Organic Sources

Making homemade dandelion tea may be fun and inexpensive, but you have to keep in mind that not all dandelions you see on the ground are beneficial for your health. This hardy weed pops up almost anywhere — from your well-kept backyard to the dirty street gutter.
If you’re planning to harvest it for consumption, make sure that you use plants grown in a clean area that’s free of pesticides, herbicides and other harmful pollutants. As much as possible, avoid those that grow near the roadway, and refrain from brewing the neighborhood dandelions unless you’re absolutely sure that chemicals weren’t sprayed on them.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Dandelion Tea

Q: Is dandelion tea safe?
A: Yes, dandelion tea is generally considered safe for most people, as long as it’s consumed in moderate amounts. It’s important to note that dandelion tea may trigger an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to dandelion and other related plants. To ensure your safety, consult your physician before drinking this herbal tea.
Q: How do you drink dandelion tea?
A: Dandelion tea is best enjoyed when it’s freshly brewed. You can serve it hot or cold. You may also mix it with other healthy ingredients, such as lemon, cinnamon and honey, for additional flavors and nutrients.
Q: What does dandelion tea do for the body?
A: Dandelion tea has long been used to help soothe digestive ailments, such as poor appetite, constipation, upset stomach and indigestion. Its diuretic properties also make it useful for reducing water weight and flushing out toxins, salt and excess water from the kidney. Plus, it helps detoxify the liver by increasing the flow of bile.

The Many Medicinal Benefits of Cannabis and Cannabidiol (CBD) ~ Dr. Joseph Mercola

The Many Medicinal Benefits of Cannabis and Cannabidiol (CBD).

By Dr. Joseph Mercola, Wake Up World.

February 6, 2019.

 
.

 

 

The existence of cannabinoid receptors in humans and other mammals, called the endocannabinoid system, reveals much about why cannabis and CBD (cannabidiol) have such a positive effect on so many bodily systems — and why the scientific community is increasingly working to discover its many medical benefits.
Production of cannabis is booming as the medical benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) are increasingly recognized.
According to Project CBD, at least 50 conditions1 are believed to be improved by CBD, including pain, seizures, muscle spasms, nausea associated with chemotherapy, digestive disorders such as colitis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), degenerative neurological disorders such as dystonia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, mood disorders, anxiety, PTSD and high blood pressure.
Yet, despite the legalization of cannabis for adult use in 10 states in the past few years and the inclusion in the 2018 Farm Bill of industrial hemp as a crop,2 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), up until recently, listed CBD as a Schedule I drug, the most dangerous drug category reserved for drugs like heroin and LSD.
The classification made no sense because CBD is nonpsychoactive — it is not addictive, does not produce a “high” and there are few to no dangerous side effects. In fact, there seems no reason for the FDA and Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) long-term vilification of CBD except possible collusion with Big Pharma, whose dangerous and lucrative pain treatments, primarily opioids, would suffer from wider CBD use.
Opioids cause approximately 115 Americans’ deaths every day. In states where CBD is becoming widely used, there are few reports of negative social or medical consequences. Conversely, there are early reports in those same states of fewer opioid emergencies, overdoses and deaths.
The restrictive, Schedule I classification of CBD has also produced medical “refugees” — people whose health conditions are only improved by CBD, not pharmaceutical products, forcing them to relocate to states with looser CBD laws.

A Surprising But Suspicious Change in CBD Classification

At the end of 2018, FDA surprised many with this modification of the Schedule I classification for some CBD products:3
“With the issuance of this final order, the Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration places certain drug products that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and which contain cannabidiol (CBD) in schedule V of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Specifically, this order places FDA-approved drugs that contain CBD derived from cannabis and no more than 0.1 percent tetrahydrocannabinols in schedule V.
This action is required to satisfy the responsibility of the Acting Administrator under the CSA to place a drug in the schedule he deems most appropriate to carry out United States obligations under the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961.”
Schedule V drugs are considered to have a lower potential for abuse than other controlled drugs.4The category includes drugs whose benefits may outweigh risks such as those for antidiarrheal, antitussive and analgesic conditions such as cough preparations with less than 200 milligrams of codeine like Robitussin AC, Lomotil, Motofen, Lyrica and Parepectolin.
Yet, does the recent modification of schedule status really reflect new realism on the part of the FDA, or is it simply a nod to drug makers’ desire to “get in on the action” and market share? After all, we have seen a similar phenomenon when Big Pharma attacks the reliability, effectiveness and quality control of popular supplements and vitamins while hypocritically seeking to market the same products themselves.

Cannabis Farms Are Becoming Large and Efficient

The Los Sueños Farms,5 outside of Pueblo, Colorado, with 36,000 plants, depicted in a recent video called “Largest Outdoor Cannabis Farm in World, Canna Cribs Episode 4,” from Growers Network, reveals how technologically far the industry has come.
The 36-acre farm, which consists of four separate farms, processes 40,000 pounds of “biomass” each harvest. Depending on the genetic expression of the plants, some are grown outside, some in greenhouses and some in greenhouses with no walls to allow solar maximization while permitting fresh air to circulate and prevent too much heat from accumulating.
For the outdoor plants, an advanced drip watering system with an emitter every 12 inches provides pressure compensated irrigation and the ability to provide specific nutrients. Drones with several lenses hover above the plants and report back their respiration rate, any insects or disease risks and plants that might be struggling for one reason or another. Humidity and lighting are computer controlled for indoor plants.
When the crop is ready, cannabis flowers are dry trimmed in an advanced piece of machinery called a twister. While the machinery does not require human labor, a quality control person does inspect the product as it comes out of the twister to make sure all stems have been removed at their base.

Cannabis Post Production Processing Is Crucial for Quality

Fertility and nutrients are important, say Los Sueños Farm employees, but the quality of the product itself comes down to curing. In massive curing rooms, racks of product dry at a temperature of 64 degrees Fahrenheit and are made ready for packaging in seven to 10 days.
They are then vacuum packed and nitrogen sealed in 10-pound bags. The bags have a window so customers can view the cannabis and assess its quality without exposing it to the harmful effects of light or environmental humidity.
After the cannabis leaves Los Sueños Farms, preparation continues for the end user. At processing facilities and retail dispensaries like the Colorado-based Mesa Organics, a partner of Los Sueños, sophisticated extraction methods are then used to cull the raw crude extract from the plant material.
At Mesa Organics, supercritical CO2 is used for the extraction process, not hydrocarbons, says owner Jim Parco, because “any hydrocarbons that are burned over 900 degrees convert to benzene” which can be lethal.
In fact, hydrocarbon extraction is banned in some parts of California, says Parco, because of the “occupational risks to the communities.” The use of supercritical CO2 also creates a purer product. After lipids, waxes and terpenes are removed through extraction, CBD, THC and other cannabinoids from the plant remain and the product is ready to be marketed.

A Cannabinoid with Many Benefits

CBD is one of some 104 compounds classified as cannabinoids in cannabis plants, with as many as seven or eight more recently discovered compounds that may be considered cannabinoids.6 CBD is contained in both Cannabis Sativa (hemp) and Cannabis Indica (marijuana), but hemp has such a low CBD content, it is primarily grown for fiber and seed — uses we will discuss later.
It is not a surprise CBD has so many benefits since there is actually an endocannabinoid system in the human body and other mammals. It is part of our physiology. Cannabinoid receptors, which recognize and interact with CBD, are found in the human brain, lungs, liver, kidneys and immune system.
 
There are myriad medical uses attributed to CBD, and the list keeps growing. Here are some uses that have recently been scientifically documented.

Allergic asthma — “CBD treatment decreased the inflammatory and remodeling processes in the model of allergic asthma,” according to the European Journal of Pharmacology7
Anxiety and sleep — “Cannabidiol may hold benefit for anxiety-related disorders,” The Permanente Journal8
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) — “Cannabis in ASD patients appears to be [a] well tolerated, safe and effective option to relieve symptoms associated with ASD,” Scientific Reports9
Blood pressure — “This data shows that acute administration of CBD reduces resting BP and the BP increase to stress in humans,” JCI Insight10
Cancer pain, nausea and lack of appetite — “The National Cancer Institute (NCI) currently recognizes medicinal C. sativa as an effective treatment for providing relief in a number of symptoms associated with cancer, including pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, and anxiety,” BioMed Research International11
Cancer/tumors — “Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the compounds present in the marijuana plant, has antitumor properties,” Cancer Letters12
Diabetes — “These results suggest that the neuroprotective effects of CBD in middle-aged diabetic rats … are related to a reduction in neuroinflammation,” Neurotoxicity Research13
Epilepsy — “CBD is a well-tolerated and effective antiseizure agent and illustrates a potential disease-modifying effect of CBD on reducing both seizure burden and associated comorbidities well after the onset of symptomatic seizures,” Epilepsia14
Inflammation — “CBD that exerts prolonged immunosuppression … might be used in chronic inflammation, the terpenoids … might thus be used to relieve acute inflammation,” Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research15
Irritable bowel diseases — “Clinical trials suggest that there may be a therapeutic role for cannabinoid therapy in the treatment of IBD,” Current Gastroenterology Reports16
Multiple Sclerosis — “As cannabis legalization has impacted the variety of cannabis products available, there appears to be growing numbers … using cannabis … reporting use of highly efficacious products with minimal side-effects,” Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders17


Neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases — “CBD has been found to possess antioxidant activity in many studies, thus suggesting a possible role in the prevention of both neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases,” BioMed Research International18
Ovarian function/female reproductive system — Impacts “the female reproductive system where it affects folliculogenesis, oocyte maturation and ovarian endocrine secretion,” Journal of Ovarian Research19


PTSD and nightmares — “Administration of oral CBD in addition to routine psychiatric care was associated with PTSD symptom reduction … CBD also appeared to offer relief in a subset of patients who reported frequent nightmares as a symptom of their PTSD,” Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine20
Pain, migraine, detoxification from opioids — “There is accumulating evidence for various therapeutic benefits of cannabis/cannabinoids, especially in the treatment of pain, which may also apply to the treatment of migraine and headache. There is also supporting evidence that cannabis may assist in opioid detoxification and weaning, thus making it a potential weapon in battling the opioid epidemic,” Headache21
Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases — “CBD may be effective in the “treatment of five syndromes, currently labeled recalcitrant to therapeutic success, and wherein improved pharmacological intervention is required: intractable epilepsy, brain tumors, Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and traumatic brain injury,” Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience22

Pediatric seizures — “The efficacy and safety profile of CBDV suggest it may have therapeutic value for early life seizures,” Neuropharmacology23

Why Is There Such Resistance to Cannabis and CBD?

Despite CBD’s many benefits, it remains in a legal no man’s land, says the Brookings Institution:24
“Over the past 22 years, 33 states have legalized cannabis for medical purposes, and over the past six years, 10 states have legalized cannabis for adult use. Every one of those programs is illegal under federal law, with no exceptions [if federal authorities choose to prosecute] …
Even CBD products produced by state-legal, medical or adult-use cannabis programs are illegal products under federal law, both within states and across state lines … Under the 2018 Farm Bill, there will be more broadly available, legal, CBD products; however, this does not mean that all CBD products are legal moving forward.”
Many trace the original vilification of cannabis which gained it Schedule I status to its association with hippies and opposition to the Vietnam War 50 years ago. Not only were “pot” arrests a way of muzzling protestors, the “out of the box” thinking that marijuana fostered fed young people’s strong questioning of authority, fueling the counter culture and war opposition.
But, as I noted earlier, the medical use of CBD oil, especially as a treatment for pain, also represents a significant threat to the sale of opioids which have so enriched Big Pharma in the last decade.
The cannabis plant also poses economic threats to the lumber, energy, food and other industries; its fiber products can be used to make paper, biofuel, building materials, food products and oil, clothing, shoes and even jewelry.
In fact, according to the Hemp Business Journal, industrial hemp “can be used in an estimated 50,000 different products across a wide spectrum of industries: from textiles to food products, building materials to bioplastics, nutraceuticals to nanomaterials, ethanol to animal bedding.25 Still, if the use of CBD were more widely adopted by Americans for medical treatments, we would probably all be healthier.

The Extraordinary Diversity of ET Star Souls On and Around the Earth. By Open

The Extraordinary Diversity of ET Star Souls On and Around the Earth.

By Open

Contributing writer for Wake Up World.

February 7th, 2019. 

 
.

 

 

I still find it somewhat amusing that we’re waiting for “Disclosure” — that some report or particular evidence would hit the mainstream to convince us of what we already know.
Ever felt like you didn’t belong here or didn’t fully fit in? Or that somehow your home was somewhere else? In the work that we do here at Openhand, travelling the world connecting with evolving people, I can tell you it’s a very common story. There are countless ET Star Souls and groups ALREADY on and around the Earth, either incarnated or else influencing the show through the ether.
Understanding the general diversity and what the underlying agendas are can greatly help you find peace with your journey here…

Intervention on Earth

I should begin by saying what I’m sharing is from direct first-hand experience. That said, our experience of reality is subject to our own relativistic perspective, the accuracy of which depends on the degree to which we’ve focused our lens. What’s essential therefore, is that you evolve your own perspective, and so take only that which resonates, but do maintain an open mind and heart so that your truth may continually evolve.
The circumstances are complex, so please excuse me if I abbreviate the diversity of the situation (I’ve given greater insight in my book DIVINICUS, rise of the divine human). Essentially the Earth has suffered an alien intervention that goes back millions of years, where DNA from the constellation Draco found its way here via panspermia (travelling on meteorites). This was the first intervention, which led to the rise of the Reptilian souls on Earth. But they were not the only ones travelling here to exploit the richness of resources and genetics.
The Annunaki, with Greys from Orion in tow, travelled here too, much later, and then eventually formed an alliance with the Reptilians to exploit the Earth, resulting in the engineering of modern day Homo Sapiens DNA, way back during the times of Atlantis around 250,000 years ago. The evidence is clear, from the sudden explosion of the human genetic code to the chromosome count (the mysterious contraction from 48 chromosomes in hominids to the 46 in humanity, engineered to create speciation). Also consider some of the megaliths around the world, such as the great pyramids, which could only have been constructed from advanced technology. For me though, the most compelling evidence is that from past-life-regression therapy that I’ve been involved with, where countless people are now recounting experiences of the Intervention and life times in other constellations, such as the Pleiades, Andromeda and Arcturus.
Indeed it was known that the Intervention would try to engineer the Earth’s environment and life here so as to exploit it. Alien souls have disconnected from the usual cycle of reincarnation within the greater toroidal flow of the Universe in an attempt to control it. Why so?

The Sirius Shift

Whilst miraculous in its multiplicity of spectacular form, the Universe can also be tremendously calamitous, as the light seeks to break through into all the darkened recesses. Entire star systems come and go within the blink of an eye. Take Sirius for example. There are plenty among us who recall being dispatched there to support the civilisation as the star system destabilised some 120 million years ago in its White Dwarf Ascension. The resultant shift was sudden and catastrophic — the civilisation being literally torn apart and souls ejected into space. It’s taken all this time to connect with, and reclaim, many of the lost souls, who’ve now incarnated here on Earth to continue their journey.
The Annunaki were the ruling elite across the Sirius constellation, originating from the planet Nibiru orbiting around Sirius C. As their home was obliterated they felt “abandoned by God” (their expression shared with me in past life regression journeying), and then sought to apply their tremendous knowledge of energy manipulation (free energy, for example) to reconstruct their home civilisation, but now here on Earth. Hence the dramatic changes to the Earth’s natural environment. So this group, the Annunaki with the Orion Greys together allied with the Reptilians on Earth, are essentially disconnected from the usual cycle of reincarnation, and now acting from different vibrations beyond the visible — they have been in the ether all around us influencing and controlling the energetic environment in which we live. They do this through thought implantation, emotional manipulation, energy implants and genetic modification — essentially addicting human souls to the system in which we live; that which disconnects from the usual cycle of reincarnation. Their purpose is to create a synthetic reality here commensurate with their needs. Which has been largely achieved.
Here’s a Meditation Download on removing implants and entities from your field.
The complexity of their agenda is morphing and shifting all the time. From GeoengineeringGenetic Modification (GMO)Transhumanism and the integration of AI, the system is constantly reshaping but with the same general agenda of exploiting human genetics so as to recreate the civilisation they lost. Even the space program (both overt and covert) is intended to propagate their purpose throughout the solar system.
We might also ask why is it that the vast majority don’t feel this influence? In actual fact they do — the disconnect from the natural flow, the obsessive addiction to consumption, the disregard for the wellbeing of all sentient life. These are frequencies of alien consciousness here that feed into the psyche. It’s only when you truly follow the path of the soul through the deep inner inquiry, that you start to separate out the Intervention Agenda from the natural flow of your own soul and it’s loving interconnection with the whole of life.

The Benevolent Mission on Earth

It was known that this Intervention would likely sweep across the Earth. Benevolent souls from many constellations have seen it happen elsewhere time and again. The benevolent mission here has been to support the emergent human consciousness and encourage the Original Humans to find their authenticity and deeper connection to the natural flow of the Universe. And so benevolence supported the emergence of Original Humans around 6-1 million years ago, before the Intervention from Nibiru and Orion.
The collective human soul was ready for separation into individualised souls. And so by gentle encouragement through the field, during the Lemurian epoch, Pleiadian DNA frequencies were resonated to support this emergence. It’s why the human genome consists of 223 genes that appear nowhere else on Earth’s tree of life. The Pleiadians were tasked to support the emergence of Original Humans from the surrounding field, but also through direct incarnation — hence there are plenty of Pleiadian souls naturally incarnated in human form here and now. Plenty still recall their vibrational connection to the Pleiades star system. For others, they simply know it as a subtle vibration of unconditional love, joy and an innocence with life.
The general idea was to encourage a custodian of the Earth, one whose emergence might help eventually realign the intervening souls by expressing frequencies of compassion, unconditional love, trust in the divine and respect for all sentient life. It was always going to be a tough mission, but so is the challenge where wayward souls have gotten lost within the density of life. Nevertheless, no matter how long it takes, the light always finds a way.

The Complex Dynamic of ET Souls on Earth Right Now

What we have now is a very complex dynamic of ET souls on and around the Earth. In summary there exists these types of configurations…
  1. Original Human souls, who’ve only existed here on Earth
  2. Pleiadian souls existing in human form who’ve had incarnations both here and elsewhere
  3. Arcturian and Andromedan souls also incarnated in human form providing technological expertise and deeper metaphysical understanding of the cosmos
  4. Sirian souls naturally incarnated in Human form who were brought here from the angelic realm after recovery from the Sirius Shift
  5. Realigning Reptilian, Annunaki, Orion and Sirian souls, incarnated in human form, who’ve been lost in the intervention, disconnected from the usual cycle of reincarnation, but are now reconnecting
  6. Reptilian, Annunaki, Orion and Sirian souls still disconnected and acting through the ether around the Earth who are still manipulating society
  7. A wide diversity of other minority soul groups from further afield in the cosmos, come to explore this complex shift of the Earth back to the light.
Clearly it’s a very complex situation. Even the star souls here will have travelled through different constellations and so have different ‘homes’ in the Universe. The field around us is teeming with groups working to resonate Star Soul frequencies that can come alive in people to remind them of who they truly are in terms of their soul resonance. Hence the great value of meditation to expand out into the field and pick up these resonant frequencies that make you feel more whole, complete and aligned.
Even if you don’t know your own star soul origins, it matters not, just feeling the frequencies that bring you alive, simply feel ‘right’ and connect you to that sense of ‘home’ is really all that’s required to support your journey and purpose here. The emergence of these aligned star soul frequencies is greatly helping unravel the Intervention.
One aspect of the Openhand Facilitator Work involves creating portals and fields of consciousness to help people form bridges into their particular soul family frequency. It’s tremendously rewarding watching souls reconnect with their true origins and feel their authentic vibration come alive!
Sample this Openhand Meditation for expanding your multidimensionality, activating Kundalini and bringing you into the Universal Toroidal Flow.

Earth Shift into 5D/6D/7D

What benevolence is working to do now, is to support the realignment of the various groups either into the New Paradigm in higher vibrations on Earth, or else back to constellations that are more commensurate with their vibration. This is being initiated through a comprehensive Earth Shift into the middle realm of the 5D/6D/7D. It will strip off the old karmic construct in the 4D to restore purity of vibration and rejuvenate Earth’s natural eco-systems. It will be populated by an evolved form of Original Humans (what I’m given to call the divine being DIVINICUS), but with a wide and diverse blend of incarnated star souls too — those that can hold the vibration of love, trust, compassion and respect for all sentient life.
Thus over millions of years the Earth will be rejuvenated and restored.
Here is an overview of the general process of the Earth Shift from 3D to 5D.

The Great Realignment

So we’re engaged in a complex realignment of the Earth’s frequencies here, which will strip off the old reality by a breakdown of the 3D biosphere (through abrupt climate changes and the pole shift). Souls that are not ready for the New Paradigm in the higher vibrations will be relocated elsewhere to realities more commensurate with their vibration and journey. Ultimately, it’s about bringing ALL souls back into the natural cycle of reincarnation, where we are interconnected and all working towards a natural flow within the Universal Torus of life.
It’s Alignment with the Torus that restores harmony and brings light throughout the Universe. To be clear, we’re not polarising or demonising those that have become wayward and exploited others, for that only ever perpetuates division. Yes, it’s been a convoluted past, in which many have suffered. And yet each of us is playing out the greater macrocosm of light working its way through all the grey areas in the vast cosmos.
Although at times intensely challenging, personally I’m greatly heartened by humanity’s growing ability to accept diversity of form and expression. We are are each unique, with widely diverse backgrounds from across the cosmos, yet all united by the collective invitation to co-create a way of living and existing here that respects all sentient life and honours their individuality. In these turbulent times, such is the tremendous opportunity for the forging of the soul that exists for us here. It’s a message contained within Openhand’s Paradigm Shift Documentary, “We’ll fill the sky with love!”
If you resonate with my sharing, consider getting involved with the Openhand Work.
In loving support,

Turmeric’s Weight Loss Secret – It Turns Bad Fat Good ~ Sayer Ji.

Turmeric’s Weight Loss Secret.

It Turns Bad Fat Good.

Written By: Sayer Ji.

Contributing writer for Wake Up World.

February 6th, 2019
 
 


A groundbreaking study published in Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry reveals that curcumin, a golden-hued compound in turmeric, may provide a unique solution for overweight individuals by altering the composition of fat cells in their bodies in favor of the calorie-burning type. 
Obesity and overweight are global epidemics today, and are largely due to the now virtually universal Western type diet of highly processed, genetically modified, chemical contaminated, and evolutionarily incompatible foods, and which can have severe if not sometimes lethal adverse health effects.
Diet, however, is not the only contributing factor. Like all conditions, the problem is multi-factorial, with exposure to a host of endocrine disrupters, chronic stress, a dramatically altered and/or depleted microbiome, and a lack of sufficient movement and exercise, all playing key roles. Every year, billions of dollars are spent on weight loss gadgets, bariatric surgeries, and both synthetic and natural pills, and yet the problem only appears to be growing worse.
What if we could strike closer to the root causes of serious weight problems using something as familiar, affordable, and safe as a common spice on our spice rack?
Indeed, turmeric contains a golden-hued compound called curcumin which appears to be capable of changing “bad” fat cells into “good” ones, among a whole host of additional beneficial properties.

Know the Difference Between Brown and White — “Good” and “Bad” — Fat

Fat used to be a really bad word. Today, however, a growing number of consumers and health enthusiasts are embracing the concept of incorporating more “good fats” into the diet, i.e. olive oilavocadococonut. That said, many still don’t know that our bodies also contain both “good” (brown) and “bad” fat (white), and depending on our activity levels, environmental conditions, and what we do or do not eat, we’ll have a particular ratio that will significantly affect our level of health as well as risk for an entire gamut of diseases.
Brown fat is colored darkly because of the high density of iron-containing mitochondria it contains. Brown fat cells, unlike white fat cells, are capable of diverting significant quantities of dietary caloric energy into thermal energy or heat. This makes the metabolic role of brown fat cells completely opposite to that of white fat cells whose primary function is to store energy for future use as adipose tissue. To underscore how radically different brown fat cells are from white, they derive from an entirely different stem cell lineage; the same one that skeletal muscle cells differentiate from.
Since the vast majority of fat found within overweight and obese adults is of the white fat variety (we have the most when we are infants at about 5% by weight), and since abdominal obesity (belly fat) has been found to be a greater risk factor for heart attack than smoking, it behooves us to look at belly fat as a concern relevant to far more than vanity, and to find ways to reduce midsection fat naturally, or at least increase the ratio of brown to white fat in the body.
The discovery of radically differing types of fat in the adult body, and a deficiency or much smaller ratio of brown to white fat in those with weight problems, has lead some researchers to hypothesize that increasing the brown fat cell phenotype could provide a novel intervention for obesity. Indeed, preliminary research on using cold temperatures to increase the brown fat in the mammalian body appear to have significant anti-obesity effects, but there is concern that these temperature changes may have unintended adverse effects for cardiovascular health.[1] Also, exposure to the cold is just plain uncomfortable, making it a less than ideal solution for many. A turmeric-based intervention could provide a much more convenient alternative.

Turmeric Extract (Curcumin) May Be an Ideal Weight Loss Supplement

In the study, titled “Curcumin induces brown fat-like phenotype in 3T3-L1 and primary white adipocytes,” Korean researchers established for the first time that curcumin is capable of inducing browning of white fat cells (adipocytes) through at least four different mechanisms:
1. By enhancing the expression of brown fat specific genes. This is a form of nutrigenomic “epigenetic modification,” which means that a nutrient is capable of altering a cell’s patterns of gene expression “from the outside in,” as it were, resulting in significant changes in the structure and function of the cells involved.
2. By stimulating the production of new mitochondria, as evidenced by increased activity of the electron transport chain and increased fatty acid oxidation. Mitochondrial biogenesis can be stimulated with other natural substances and therapeutic modalities and is an intervention that may be of special benefit in age-associated loss of muscle and brain function, enhancing athletic performance, and in improving mitochondrial disorders. [See GreenMedInfo’s database keyword: “Mitochondrial Biogenesis“]
3. By increasing protein levels of hormone-sensitive lipase and p-acyl-CoA carboxylase, two markers that play a role in increasing fat-degrading processes (lipolysis) and the suppression of new fat production (lipogenesis).
4. By increasing the activity AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). AMPK activity is something of a cellular metabolic master switch that improves metabolic homeostasis, which is often out of balance in overweight and obese individuals.
In addition to these four mechanisms of action contributing to curcumin’s brown fat supporting properties, the researchers also noted that because curcumin is a well-established anti-inflammatory agent (view 88 studies on the topic here), and because obesity and its various co-morbid states such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are conditions that involve upregulated and unremitting inflammatory and/or or dysregulated inflammatory response, curcumin’s anti-obesity effects may be in part due to its inflammation-reducing properties.
One additional relevant mechanism of action not discussed in this study, but recently identified in a study published earlier this year in the journal Molecular Medicine Reports, is curcumin’s ability to induce programmed cell death (apoptosis) in white fat cells. This may contribute permanently to reducing the overall ability of the body to store unhealthy fat.
The study authors concluded,
“Our findings suggest that curcumin plays a dual modulatory role in inhibition of adipogenesis as well as induction of the brown fat-like phenotype and thus may have potential therapeutic implications for treatment of obesity.”

Curcumin’s Benefits Extend to a Wide Range of Health Issues

Given the research discussed above, curcumin should be considered a pleiotrophic anti-obesity agent, as it is capable of “targeting” and ameliorating a variety of metabolic imbalances in the body simultaneously. In fact, curcumin is so diverse in its therapeutic actions as to boggle the imagination. GreenMedInfo’s database project alone has characterized over 790 distinct health conditions that curcumin has been studied to prevent, treat, and in some cases reverse – something that puts every pharmaceutical drug on the planet to shame, especially considering that curcumin is immensely safer and has been time-tested for thousands of years in a wide range of different cultures. Add in the fact that curcumin has been studied in human trials to be at least as effective as Prozac for depression, a cardiovascular tonic as significant as exercise, and capable of preventing the progression of prediabetes to diabetes in an astounding 100% of those tested, it would seem unethical not to use it when the choices are either inaction or a pharmaceutical drug. For more information you can view 17 studies GreenMedInfo has gathered on turmeric and/or curcumin’s anti-obesity properties here.

3 Ways to Experience “Dadirri” in Nature ~ Aletheia Luna

3 Ways to Experience “Dadirri” in Nature.

By Aletheia Luna

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

February 5th, 2019 

 
 
.

 

Dadirri. It is inner, deep listening and quiet, still awareness. Dadirri recognizes the deep spring that is inside us. We call on it and it calls to us … When I experience dadirri, I am made whole again. I can sit on the riverbank or walk through the trees; even if someone close to me has passed away, I can find my peace in this silent awareness.
“My people today recognize and experience in this quietness the great Life-Giving spirit, the Father of us all. It is easy for me to experience God’s presence. When I am out hunting, when I am in the bush, among the trees, on a hill or by a billabong; these are the times when I can simply be in God’s presence. My people have been so aware of Nature. It is natural that we will feel close to the Creator.” – Miriam Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann, Aboriginal teacher and artist
Ever since I learned the meaning of the word dadirri in a conversation I was having with an Australian aboriginal friend of mine, I immediately fell in love with its significance. I was teaching him about ‘Pachamama‘ (what we call mother nature in Quechua) and other of my indigenous ways of looking at the world, while he was teaching me about his.
Nature is one of the best healing and teaching environments that has been used by every indigenous culture to reconnect with God, or with the Divine. In a time where we are so materialistically centered, it is unsurprising that we often take for granted a gift that is so freely available.
It’s easy to forget that we don’t own nature, but we are a part of it.

Why We Must Reconnect With Nature

I travel into nature every free opportunity that I have so I can be alone, heal, revitalize and re-energize my powers, to reconnect with my initiation commitments, to converse with natural spirit allies and helpers, to be inspired and to generally fill myself with the connection to “All there is that is sacred”, so that I can come back to my life with more strength, power and balance.
In our densely populated world with its sprawling cities everywhere, it is often difficult to find an accessible place in nature to reconnect with. But in my experience to develop inner balance, and thus survive as a species, we must change our relationship with nature, reconnect with it and redefine our place within it.
Modern science is agreeing more and more with the notion that our dissociation from nature is extremely harmful to our psyche and to our individual and collective development. Bill Plotkin, an eco-psychologist who has worked with people in the wild for over 20 years, writes in his book Nature and The Human Soul:
… healthy human development requires a constant balancing of the influences and demands of both nature and culture … By suppressing the nature dimension of human development … industrial growth society engenders an immature citizenry unable to imagine a life beyond consumerism and soul-suppressing jobs.
There are three main reasons why I see we should immerse ourselves more into nature:
1. Artificial Lives: Most of our days are spent in artificial environments that have no living energy or ‘spirit’. We work and live in buildings made from bricks, and rooms illuminated by artificial lighting, we stare at artificial screens 5 to 6 hours of our waking time, and are surrounded by artificial noises and sounds from messages, emails, calls, apps and video games. This results in an over-stimulated mind and under-stimulated senses, all of which disconnect us from ourselves.
2. Reflects Our Souls: Our soul is that wild energy that vibrates in all that is living. When we are in nature, we are instinctively able to connect with these deeper aspects of ourselves, to explore our natural selves, and to find peacefulness and wisdom through inner-balance.
3. Species Survival: Unless we learn to reconnect with the natural world, respect her laws and appreciate the air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink thanks to her, our survival as a species is doubtful. The way we treat nature serves as a great reflection on our level of conscious development. If we destroy nature, we suffer much more than she does. We as a species depend on her; she doesn’t depend on us. Eventually, with enough time she can heal any wounds we inflict on her, but we can never heal our own species’ extinction.

3 Ways We Can Reconnect With Nature

My experience has taught me that trying to make someone environmentally aware is just as ineffective as trying to make someone animal cruelty aware.
The whole PETA approach of “Meat is Murder” to shock and enrage publicity, and the guilt tripping approach of: “You’re no better than a mass murderer! Your eating habits are revolting and evil!! Join us!” portrays vegans and vegetarians as being subverts, accusers, haters, which often does nothing but repel and scare many people away from even considering a change in their eating habits.
So, instead of following the demands to “take care of nature”, why don’t we take the time to immerse ourselves in the natural world and experience all the physical and mental benefits it can provide us? It is hard to take care of something you have developed no respect for.
These are some of the suggestions I offer our students to help them reconnect with nature:
1. Educated awareness: We live in an age where being environmentally friendly is associated with being a hippy, hipster, tree-hugger or eco-freak. Caring for the environment is somehow thought of as being stupid or uncool. Mostly this comes from the lack of education we provide to teach children and adults of the many benefits they can experience from immersing themselves in the wilderness. The first step is to develop a vibrant knowledge and understanding of the subject.
2. Become an exhibitionist: We often think of nature as a one-sided relationship, or in other words: that we simply go into nature to look at it. But have you ever thought that Nature also experiences you? ‘Pachamama’ as we call her, is very aware of the presence and energy that you bring into her environment. A fun exercise to try is going into nature with a piece of paper and pencil; sitting down, closing your eyes for however long you wish, and concentrating on your breathing, imagining that Mother Nature is watching you all around. Once you’re done, open your eyes and write down your experience, the thoughts that popped into your head and the feelings. You’ll be surprised what she can inspire in you.
3. Experience nature with intent: A good way to practice dadirri is going to a park or nature walk, and experience nature with intent. To do this, dedicate the first five minutes of your walk to noting all the sounds you hear. You then dedicate the next five minutes to experiencing or feeling the sensations produced by the wind, warmth of the sun, coolness of the rain, or even by extending your hand so you can touch the trees as you walk by. The next five minutes try to notice all the trees and plants, as well as all the wildlife you can find. And finally, the last few minutes can be dedicated to becoming aware of your connection with the earth, by experiencing how your feet firmly touch the ground with every step.
Intuitively, we all know the value of nature. When we imagine a calm and relaxing place, a place to escape from the business of the modern world, for example, most of us imagine a sanctuary in nature. I hope this article helps you get back in touch with our oldest friend.

Artificial Intelligence – Losing Our Humanity to Technology ~ Jim Hightower

Artificial Intelligence.

Losing Our Humanity to Technology.

By Jim Hightower, 

Guest writer for Wake Up World

February 5th, 2019

 

 

 

AI Wants to Reprogram You

 
 
Driverless cars cost jobs and threaten pedestrians. Investors’ advice? Just get out of the way!
With chaos in the White House, worsening environmental disasters, more wars than we can count, and a wobbling economy here at home, the last thing we need is another big challenge. But — look out! — here comes a doozy!
It’s AI — artificial intelligence — the fast-evolving science of autonomous machines that can think, learn, and even reproduce themselves.
 
Consider self-driving vehicles. Once the stuff of science fiction, the future is suddenly upon us, with Google, Daimler, and GM rolling out driverless taxis, commercial trucks, and even cars with no steering wheel or gas and brake pedals.
An army of corporate lobbyists is rushing to legislative halls, literally changing the rules of the road to allow full deployment of these vehicles.
What about the hundreds of thousands of professional drivers who’ll lose their jobs? Not our problem, say the financiers and AI barons who’d profit from a mass bot-mobile conversion. Besides, as AI champion David Autor coldly asserts, those drivers get sick, take vacations, etc. “People are messy,” he notes; “machines are straightforward.”
Indeed, so straightforward that these two-ton, non-sentient “drivers” will be driving straight at a world of defenseless pedestrians. Already, one of Uber’s experimental cars killed an Arizona pedestrian last year.
We can fix that, says Andrew Ng, a prominent AI investor: They just have to be reprogrammed.
By “they,” Ng doesn’t mean the self-driving machines — he means pedestrians! “Please be lawful,” he scolds, “and please be considerate” of the computer-driven vehicles. Give right-of-way to the new technology!
So, don’t just prepare yourself for A Brave New World of automation. Prepare to be re-educated so you interact properly with machines and don’t get in their way.

Worried About Robots? Just Become One

Tech CEO Elon Musk says artificial intelligence is a big threat to humans, so we should… surgically implant wires in our brains?
We humans have got to get a whole lot smarter, says Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of Tesla automobiles and CEO of SpaceX rockets.
Musk isn’t merely reacting to humanity’s recent tendency to elect lunatics to lead our countries. Rather, he’s warning us about the rapid rise of a radical new technology: artificial intelligence.
In common parlance, he’s referring to robots, but these aren’t the clunky, somewhat cute machines performing rote tasks. AI essentially has evolved to become an electronic brain — a web of evermore-complex super-computers interacting as one cognitive unit that can program itself, make decisions, and act independently of humans.
These thinking machines are rapidly increasing in number and geometrically advancing their IQ, prompting Musk and others to view AI technologies in apocalyptic terms. As algorithms and systems inevitably grow more sophisticated, he says, “digital intelligence will exceed biological intelligence by a substantial margin.”
In graphic terms, Musk warns that profiteering humans are “summoning the devil” by creating a new superior species of beings that will end up dominating humanity, becoming “an immortal dictator from which we would never escape.”
What’s weird isn’t his dystopian prognosis (other experts agree that runaway bot intelligence is a real threat), but his solution. The way for human beings to compete with AI, says Musk, is to merge with it — not a corporate transaction, but a literal merger: Surgically implant AI devices in human brains with “a bunch of tiny wires” that would fuse people with super intelligence.
Uh-huh… and what could go wrong with that?
It’s good to have technological geniuses alert us to looming dangers, but maybe the larger community of humanists ought to lead the search for answers.

New Moon in Aquarius – Beyond the Threshold of Fear ~ Simon Vorster and Jennifer Langstone

New Moon in Aquarius.

Beyond the Threshold of Fear.

By Simon Vorster and Jennifer Langstone

Contributing writers for Wake Up World.

February 4th, 2019. 

 

 

 

The Full Moon in Leo (January 21st) reflected a state of deep transformation on both a collective and individual level. Allowing us the time it takes to grow and nurture meaningful change, the energies of this recent lunar cycle have helped us to align wholeheartedly with a life that is authentic and meaningful to us — and now, that reality is starting to come into fruition in the most tangible of ways.
As the alignments accompanying today’s New Moon in Aquarius take shape, we are seeing the flowers of our last few years’ of soul-searching finally coming into bloom. Consciousness is becoming more available to our perception, manifesting in forms our eyes can see, and our most authentic inner nature is welling up inside us, through us, and from us, into manifest creation. We are transcending our fears and limits, and beginning to occupy emotional spaces we had forgotten existed within us, and neglected to see and feel and acknowledge — until now.
Are you ready to go beyond the threshold of your fears?
Let’s look at the transformational potential of the New Moon in Aquarius.

Reaction and Response

Chiron in Pisces square Venus in Capricorn, Mars in Aries square Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn
The energy of the New Moon comes with a set of intense evolutionary alignments. Venus enters Capricorn for the New Moon and begins to form a tension angle to Chiron. Venus just finished a cycle in expansive Sagittarius where it also made a conjunction to Jupiter. This energy fueled our passionate desire to explore new horizons and pursue new vistas of opportunities — which we can now begin to ground into a solid foundation thanks to the planetary activity in Capricorn, where Venus will be until early march 2019.
The square alignment to Chiron in Pisces points to emotional wounding around our inner sense of self, and with Mars squaring Pluto, an intense upward push of repressed or unresolved feelings may come to the surface at this time. We may also find ourselves instinctually reacting from our place of woundedness. Ultimately, these alignments are reflecting to us an opportunity to become aware of displaced or suppressed emotions that remain unprocessed or unreleased.
During this cycle, try to view any emotional outbursts or deep surfacing emotions as an opportunity to explore and identify the pattern of woundedness. From this place our ability to respond, not react, to situations is greater, because we can hold more emotional space within ourselves. In the bigger picture, this perspective helps us cultivate a deeper and more nourishing connection to life and the experiences we are offered on our journey of awakening.

Inner Sight

New Moon in Aquarius, Mars and Uranus in Aries square the Nodes of the Moon (in Cancer/Capricorn)
The New Moon in Aquarius offers a great opportunity for liberation and healing. The energy of Aquarius helps to liberate and change ingrained patterns so that new opportunities and possibilities can arise. At a deeper level, the Aquarius energy reflects the life path of fellowship, unity and diversity. It helps us find our path of individuated creative expression through the exploration of our deeper sense of self. The energy helps us find what is unique about ourselves within the definition of a group or society.
Within the context of this New Moon, the Aquarius energy of the Sun and Moon at 15 degrees, is being perfectly supported by Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Capricorn which are all also at 15 degrees. During this transition, deep inner sight is made possible due to the objectivity Aquarius is bringing to the experiences arising from deep within our emotional body. Uranus squaring the Lunar Nodes continues to awaken subconscious memories of repressed or unresolved emotional debris that weighs us down. Meanwhile, the energy of Mars approaching Uranus brings into focus long-term evolution cycles, and we will find ourselves finally releasing deep ingrained subconscious memories and patterns and — finally — beginning to experience the deepest layers of our true selves and not just the avatar we created to adapt to our earlier life circumstances.
This is a time of profound insight. When we clear away outdated aspects of ourselves, we open ourselves to the inner sight of our actual nature. We see the truth of who we are and what our essence really holds for us.

Changing the Narrative

Venus in Capricorn trine Mars and Uranus in Aries trine Jupiter in Sagittarius
Supporting the evolutionary potential of this New Moon are the trines of Venus, Mars and Jupiter. These personal planetary bodies reflect to us the ways in which our beliefs (Jupiter) and our inner relationship to ourselves (Venus) are being instinctually redefined (Mars). The awareness that is arising out of the Square aspects mentioned in the earlier paragraphs helps us identify areas of focus, transformation and integration in our healing journey. And, with Uranus (a transpersonal planet) also trining Mars and Venus, the energetic push to liberate ourselves from the old narrative of our lives and accelerate toward our new vision is clearly being felt during this New Moon.
To change the old narrative, however, we must learn to objectify our emotional layers as they come to the surface, break down the defensive barrier that we unconsciously hold in place to protect our emotional wounds, and explore the underlying dynamics that surround each emotion without being affected or overwhelmed by them. When we change our internal narrative we are better able to respond not react, to know and nurture our inner truth, and to foster a deeper communion with our own integrated self, and those we are in relation to.

The New Moon’s Message: Beyond the Threshold of Fear

We create invisible boxes around ourselves — boxes moulded by our fears, wounds and judgements. And as long as we stay within our box we usually don’t even notice it is there, and we live a life oblivious to the limitations imposed by the invisible walls around us.
Every now and then however, something, either from within ourselves or prompted by our external circumstances, pushes us outside of our box, and suddenly we become painfully aware of its presence. Suddenly we are faced with the very fears, pains and judgements that created it to begin with. We feel vulnerable and exposed when we are outside of our box. We believe that others or life are going to reflect the things we feel about ourselves, the things we came to believe about ourselves, the things that put us in the box to begin with.
But what if there is a life waiting for us just beyond the threshold of our fears? What if we are closing ourselves off from love, from healing the wounds that hurt within us? What if we could know ourselves differently — if we were to step outside of our protective box?
We are currently being confronted to become aware of our self-imposed limitations and the beliefs that put them there. We are being offered the gift of self-awareness, by being pushed beyond our threshold of fear. We are being gifted the support we need to dissolve the core beliefs that keep us from fully experiencing ourselves, and life.
It may not be comfortable to face our own darkness and to stay present with it, to form a new relationship to those rejected parts of ourselves. But we need to allow room for our fears in our awareness so that we can live beyond them; so that we can grow. We are being invited to become the empathetic witness of the feelings that restrict and limit us, rather than allowing them to consume and control and define us.
We tend to project all of the things we fear onto the unknown as a way of pushing them away from ourselves, and when we do this, we live in repeated cycles of the known. Once we step into the unknown, those fears become present with us and we are able to see them revealed for what they are… false evidence appearing real. We can then expand ourselves into the flow of life. We can see the true beauty of our uniqueness as it interweaves with the greater story. We can feel the depth of our being present with us in each moment.
It is time for you to know yourself more deeply than before; to become aware of who you really are beyond any self imposed limitations. Feel what needs to be felt and see what needs to be seen. Allow it to be held within you rather that you within it. Give your fear a home in your heart — then go beyond its threshold, into the infinite unknown.
Blessings,

Top 19 Tips to Reduce Your EMF Exposure ~ Joseph Mercola.

Top 19 Tips to Reduce Your EMF Exposure.

By Dr. Joseph Mercola.

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

January 26th, 2018.

Exposures to EMF radiation from cellphones, Wi-Fi networks and “smart” devices has been linked to chronic diseases such as cardiac arrhythmias, anxiety, depression, autism, Alzheimer’s, infertility, mitochondrial dysfunction, DNA damage, eye and heart problems, chronic pain and suppressed immune function — and with 5G on the horizon, things are about to be magnified.
The potential ramifications of unchecked exposure to electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation are immense. As explained in the featured interview with Martin Pall, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of biochemistry and basic medical sciences at Washington State University, the primary danger of EMFs — and what drives the processes of chronic disease — is the mitochondrial damage triggered by peroxynitrites, one of the most damaging types of reactive nitrogen species.
Devices that continuously emit EMF radiation at levels that damage your mitochondria include your cellphone, cellphone towers, Wi-Fi routers and modems, baby monitors and “smart” devices of all kinds, including smart meters and smart appliances.

Types of Damaging EMFs

EMFs can be broadly divided into three categories:
  1. Electric fields: AC electric fields at 60 Hz (50 Hz in Europe) from house wiring and corded appliances (especially ungrounded ones: cords that have only two prongs rather than three). Electric fields are the most challenging to measure accurately and significantly contributes to the confusion about EMFs
  2. Magnetic fields: AC magnetic fields at 60/50Hz Hz from power lines, wiring errors on house wiring, current on grounding paths, and from motors and transformers
  3. Radio frequencies (RF) from cellphones, smart meters, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other wireless devices
In addition to these three categories, you also have dirty electricity, or EMI (electromagnetic interference) caused by transient voltage spikes. If we go back in time to the end of World War I, around 1918 or so, and use that timeframe as a baseline of EMF exposure among the general public, you come to the astonishing conclusion that EMF exposure has increased about 1 quintillion times over the past 100 years.
You’d have to be irrational to assume that this radical increase — an increase of 1 billion times — couldn’t have some adverse effects. The reality is that most people are experiencing biological impacts as a result of EMF exposure, but have no appreciation of the damage it’s causing until it’s too late. Even then, it’s extremely difficult to link the exposure to the symptoms or the disease.

Unrelenting EMF Exposure Can Wreck Your Health

Pall has published research1,2,3,4 showing low-frequency microwave radiation activates voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) — channels in the outer membrane of your cells. Once activated, the VGCCs open, allowing an abnormal influx of calcium ions into the cell, which activates nitric oxide (NO).
NO is the only molecule in your body produced at high enough concentrations to outcompete other molecules for superoxide and is a precursor for peroxynitrite.5 These potent oxidant stressors are associated with an increased level of systemic inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction, and are thought to be a root cause for many of today’s chronic diseases.
For an in-depth understanding of peroxynitrites and the harm they inflict, see “Nitric Oxide and Peroxynitrite in Health and Disease”6 — a 140-page paper with 1,500 references by Dr. Pal Pacher, Joseph Beckman and Dr. Lucas Liaudet. It’s an epic paper and one of the best reviews I’ve ever read and best of all it is free to download.
One of its most significant downsides of peroxynitrite is that it damages DNA. Your body has the capacity to repair that damage through a family of 17 different enzymes collectively called poly ADP ribose polymerases (PARP). However, while PARP work well, they require NAD+ for fuel and when they run out of NAD+ they stop repairing your DNA, which can lead to premature cell death.

Heart, Brain and Male Reproductive Organs are at Greatest Risk

According to Pall’s theory, the physical locations where VGCCs are the densest are indicative of the diseases you might expect from chronic excessive exposure to EMFs. As it turns out, the highest density of VGCCs are found in your nervous system, your brain, the pacemaker in your heart and in male testes.
As a result, EMFs are likely to contribute to neurological and neuropsychiatric problems, heart and reproductive problems, including but not limited to cardiac arrhythmias, anxietydepressionautismAlzheimer’s and infertility. Excessive calcium signaling produced by EMF exposures also has important roles in producing pathophysiological effects of EMFs, including each of the effects listed above.
For the past 25 years, the industry has claimed that nonionizing radiation is harmless and that the only radiation worth worrying about is ionizing radiation. Pall’s research unequivocally proves that this assumption is false.
Thanks to Pall’s work, we now know that VGCCs are 7.2 million times more sensitive to microwave radiation than the charged particles inside and outside our cells. This means the safety standards for this exposure are off by a factor of 7.2 million. In terms of oxidative damage, research shows 3G creates the same level of cellular stress and oxidative damage as about 1,600 chest X-rays.

Disinformation by Industry Threatens Public Health

Unfortunately, negative health effects from EMFs are usually not immediately noticeable, as the damage accrues over time, similar to that from smoking. It’s important to note that researchers are in general agreement that there’s a latency period of about 10 years or more before the damage shows up, which places children at greatest risk, since their exposures are earlier in life and longer.
There’s no doubt in my mind that cellphones are one of the greatest public health threats of the 21st century. But, like the tobacco industry before it, the telecommunication industry has manipulated federal regulatory agencies, public health authorities and professionals through powerful and sophisticated lobbying efforts, leaving consumers confused about the health risks.
In an investigative report for The Nation, Mark Hertsgaard and Mark Dowie reveals “the disinformation campaign — and massive radiation increase — behind the 5G rollout.”7
By early 1999, findings from more than 50 studies were already raising “‘serious questions’ about cellphone safety,” and this evidence was shared with the CTIA8 (the trade association for the wireless industry) board of directors. They ignored it, and have consistently fought to prevent public discussion and knowledge about the possible effects.

5G Rollout Will Significantly Magnify Health Risks

The industry touts 5G, the “5th Generation” wireless network, as a way to create faster internet and streaming services, and better cellphone coverage. The problem is that 5G relies primarily on the bandwidth of the millimeter wave (MMW), which is known to penetrate 1 to 2 millimeters of human skin tissue9 and has been linked to numerous health problems, including:10


  • Eye problems such as lens opacity in rats, which is linked to the production of cataracts
  • Impacted heart rate variability, an indicator of stress, in rats and heart rate changes (arrhythmias) in frogs
  • Pain
  • Suppressed immune function
MMW is actually what’s used in crowd control weapons (Active Denial Systems) by the U.S. Department of Defense, as it has the ability to cause a severe burning sensation.11 Unlike the “4th Generation” (4G) technology currently in use, which relies on 90-foot cell towers with about a dozen antenna ports on each, the 5G system uses “small cell” facilities or bases, each with about 100 antenna ports.12
Once it’s installed in your neighborhood, you won’t have a choice to opt out of continuous 5G exposure, and research13 compiled by EMF coach and author Lloyd Burrell shows the proliferation of 5G for the sake of faster internet could be a public health disaster.
While MMWs have not been widely used before, it’s already been suggested that sweat ducts in human skin act as antennae when they come in contact with MMWs.14 In 2017, more than 180 doctors and scientists from 35 countries signed a petition15 to enact a moratorium on the rollout of 5G due to the potential risks to wildlife and human health, which include an increased risk for:
  • Cancer
  • Cellular stress and increase in harmful free radicals
  • Genetic damage
  • Reproductive problems16,17,18
  • Neurological disorders
Two years earlier, in 2015, more than 230 scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of nonionizing EMFs in 41 nations signed an international appeal to the United Nations, calling for protection from nonionizing EMF exposure due to evidence of health effects even at low levels.19

20 Facts About 5G’s Impact on Human Health

In the video above, Paul Ben Ishai, Ph.D., a senior lecturer with the department of physics at Ariel University in Israel, reviews the potential risks to human health from sub-MM communication systems. The Environmental Health Trust has also published a list20 of 20 facts you need to know about 5G wireless. These include:
5G coverage requires “small cell” antennas to be placed in neighborhoods everywhere.
Millions of small cells must be built into people’s front yards.
The radiation from 5G small cells is not minor, and will increase EMF radiation near homes, causing aesthetic deterioration of the environment in addition to health risks.
5G will not replace current wireless technology but add to it, increasing exposure exponentially.
Community authority is being overruled at every level of government in the name of boosting cellphone coverage and internet speeds.
Cellphone companies have confirmed that 5G small cells will work at a distance of 3,000 feet and do not need to be placed every 100 feet, necessitating them being placed near homes.
Scientists worldwide are calling for a halt to the rollout of 5G.
Cumulative daily radiation exposure is associated with serious health effects, including cancer,21,22altered brain development in children and reproductive damage in men.
Indeed, thousands of studies showing biological effects from low-intensity EMF were summarized in the BioInitiative Report23 (2007 and 2012), demonstrating immune system effects, neurological effects, cognitive effects and much more. Another important study,24 funded by the U.S. government, was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2011.
Using a positron emission tomography or PET scan capable of detecting alterations in glucose, the researchers determined that cellphone radiation triggers your brain cells to metabolize glucose at an increased rate.
Glucose metabolism equates to cell activation, so the findings indicate that radiation from your cellphone has a well-defined measureable influence on your brain. Essentially, each time you put a cellphone up to your ear, you’re artificially activating your brain cells.
Multiple papers have concluded wireless radiation is a human carcinogen; the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified cellphones as a Group 2B “possible carcinogen” in 2011,25 and two recent studies (one by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP)26 and one by the Ramazzini Institute in Italy27) confirm its carcinogenic potential.
The NTP study found heart tumors (malignant schwannomas) in male rats, “similar to acoustic neuromas, a benign tumor in people involving the nerve that connects the ear to the brain, which some studies have linked to cellphone use.”
According to experts, 5G small cell wireless streaming bills do not make financial sense.
Antennas near homes also decrease property values.
Microwave antennas in front yards pose several worker and public safety hazards.
Wireless companies warn investors of risks, but do not inform people living near cellphone towers.
Antennas near homes will cause a deterioration of sleep for the occupants, resulting in decreased performance and health.
Cellphone radiation has been shown to have an adverse impact on birds, bees, trees and plants.
Many U.S. cities and entire countries are voting to halt 5G.
The Federal Communications Commission does not monitor radiation exposures from cell installations and many cell towers already violate radiation limits.
The International Association of Firefighters officially oppose cell towers on fire stations, and have done so since 2004, after research showed firefighters with antennas on their stations suffered neurological damage, including memory problems, intermittent confusion and feelings of weakness.28
The American Academy of Pediatrics and many other medical organizations are calling for federal action to protect children from EMF exposures, citing research showing that living near mobile phone base stations is associated with an increased risk for headaches, memory problems, dizziness, depression and sleep disturbances.
Research29 by Pall published in 2016 detail how, when VGCCs are activated in the brain, they release neurotransmitters and neuroendocrine hormones. Hence, consequences of chronic EMF exposure to the brain also include anxiety, depression, autism and Alzheimer’s.
Preliminary results from the largest long-term study30,31,32 of brain development and youth health in the U.S., the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study,33 also reveals the brains of the most prolific users of electronic devices look different compared to those who use smartphones, tablets and video games less frequently.
Children who use electronic devices for seven hours or more each day have premature thinning of the brain cortex, the outer brain layer that processes information from the five physical senses (taste, touch, sight, smell and sound). As little as two hours of screen time per day may impact cognition, resulting in lower scores on thinking and language tests.
Fiber optic connections is the solution and the safe alternative to boost internet speed and reliability.

Be the Infinite Player! – The Spiritual Journey as an “Infinite Game” ~ Open.

Be the Infinite Player! 

The Spiritual Journey as an “Infinite Game”.

By Open.

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

January 11th, 2019. 

 
.
 
 
 
 
 
Have you realised it yet? The Spiritual Journey does not lead to some final accomplishment. You do not reach some distant end goal, some ‘top of the mountain’ or even some state of never-ending peace. Even “The Shift” or “The Event” as some call it, is just a shift within a shift within… There is no where to get to! Even the mystical state of Enlightenment is not an ending but a beginning. Think about this deeply for a moment. You can stop striving right now. There’s phenomenal freedom in it. And if you can find your right alignment in this “Infinite Game”, it will bring you continual joy and accomplishment…

The “Infinite Game”

The Spiritual Journey is not a finite accomplishment, it is an “Infinite Game”, with no fixed landscape, that changes and transforms from one day to the next, from this moment to the next.
Breathe a deep sigh of relief, and let yourself become that which you truly are — the shape shifting infinite game player. As long as you understand the one basic rule of this Infinite Game, no matter where you are in it, no matter what the challenges or difficulties, no matter how low your resources are, there will always be another play.
So here is the fundamental underlying rule of this spiritual Infinite Game. And when you know it, when it truly sinks in, then you’ll find yourself always the winner in the game of life…
It is not about some finite accomplishment, like Kundalini Activation, processing all your Karma, becoming “enlightened” or shifting into 5D consciousness. It is not ‘touching some infinite peace’ and staying there. The Universe is constantly dancing, changing, moving and morphing, and your soul is an intricate part of that movement. To have joy, happiness and sense of fulfillment, is to be in your soul and freely flowing as that, from one moment to the next; always unleashing the next best version of you.
You see in this Infinite Game of the spiritual path, there is no ultimate ending. Yes, there will be finite accomplishments — becoming enlightened for example — but ultimately, there is no way of measuring the ‘success’ of ‘getting there’. Because there is no ultimate destination.
So what is the point of life?

The Point of It All

Life sprang into being without intention, if it did, that would presuppose a ‘creator’ and then you’re always left wondering what preceded the creator. Therefore if there was no God that began it all, there was no mind of God with a pre-determined purpose or point. And yet the Universe now seems to be always doing something. If we study it carefully, then one day the true meaning will land…
The Universe is constantly expressing itself. It’s constantly reshaping, realigning and reforming to express the next superlative example of itself. Voila. That’s it. There is absolutely nothing else going on!
I put it to you, that if we acknowledge and align with this principle, then it will furnish deep joy and satisfaction. To find true happiness in life, true success, is not to strive for some finite completion — that off-grid, eco-friendly house in the country; to attain Enlightenment; the whole planet living justly and fairly in harmony. These things may happen, and they may be worthwhile finite goals to work towards, yes. But truly successful people reveal one common thread to their lives:
That joy, happiness and success in life comes not from some finite measurement, but this…. the continual growth and development, the continual improvement, from one day to the next, of… Yourself!

The Answer Is All around… In Nature

Watch nature carefully. Consider a Tree. It reaches up to the sun and transforms light into energy. Does it ever stop? Does it ever give up? Does it ever say, “I don’t have enough resources”? If it can express itself, if it has just enough water and nutrients in this moment to take another ‘breath’, then it will. And each moment it is working to do it better than it did before.
Watch any creature you care to mention in nature, and look for the common thread. Each is being completely and wholly them. They work diligently in each moment to be more of them. They aren’t efforting to be this. They’re just being it!
And if you doubt in any way that they’re constantly learning evolving and growing, then look more closely. I watched a guy feeding grapes to squirrels in a park in downtown Manhattan once. If he fed the squirrel an organic grape, he’d eat it right away, without hesitation. But if he fed the squirrel a non-organic grape, then the squirrel took the time and trouble to peel the skin off before eating. What marvel!

Finite Accomplishments in the Infinite Game

I put it to you that you’re in this “Infinite Game”. After Enlightenment you’ll be carrying water and chopping wood. After the completion of this 5D Shift, there will be another in a different constellation. After we’ve attained nirvana in this Universe, there’ll be another in the mulitverse to work on. It is never ending!
What can this mean for you right now? How can it liberate you right now? How can it help you find peace and contentment, yet at the same time, always finding joy in the accomplishment of unfolding more of your brilliant light?
Realise the spiritual journey is continually unfolding and never ending. So there is nowhere to get to or nothing to strive for. You’re in an Infinite Game. And yet within that, immediate goals to accomplish will present themselves – You’re working through Kundalini Activation for example. Embrace what comes up, work through any limiting tightness or resistance, because to deny yourself as what you are is self-defeating and leads to frustration.
Be the squirrel — peel off that layer! But then don’t sit there preening yourself because ‘you’ve made it’. Peel off another layer, eat another grape, shine more!

How to Always Be the Winner

You can’t guarantee to win in a finite game that has defined rules and ever increasing complexity of landscape. But you can always win in the Infinite Game…
All you have to do is take any aspect of your life that is presenting in your awareness right now, today, this moment: a particular relationship, your immediate job circumstances or an important event unfolding in your life. Contemplate how can you be more of you in that? Perhaps you can express more fully; maybe you could be more surrendered; maybe you could be more willful and determined; perhaps more diplomatic; you might find more empathy and compassion or be of service; maybe you could hold the space open longer for some altruistic magic to come through.
(Check out this viewpoint on unleashing the Characteristics of Your Soul.)
I guarantee you that when your perspective changes from ‘what you need to do’, and switches instead to ‘how can you be more of you’, then you will always win. And what’s more, when you switch to this allegiance, then the Universe always comes to meet you. I find you always have enough resources and energy, you always have a ‘vehicle’ to make that change, to fulfill that expression. Because the entirety of the Universe is working to do that in every part of it. And what’s more, here’s the divine paradox: you actually accomplish more, far more than you ever dreamed of!
I can tell you this is just such a magical freedom, the most incredible release.

You Are the Eternal Shape-Shifting Shaman

At your heart, you are the eternal shape shifting shaman; you are the continual cosmic blade runner. You just keep getting better. Constant possibility of accomplishment will present itself. And it’s never-ending, because you’ve become the Infinite Game Player. And you can decide to become that right now.
Voila. There you are. Magnificent!

The Dominoes Are Falling: Astrology Forecast January 6 – January 13, 2019 ~ Lorna Bevan.

The Dominoes Are Falling: Astrology Forecast January 6 – January 13, 2019.

By Lorna Bevan

Guest writer for Wake Up World.

January 6th, 2018.

The Dominoes Are Falling

We are accelerated into the week on the heels of Saturday’s solar eclipse in Capricorn on the karmic South Node of Fate. Eclipses are dramatic cosmic wild cards. They shake you out of your feelings of compliance and complacency so that you can move from one stairstep to another. They are some of the most dramatic tools that the universe uses to get you to pay attention to areas in your life that need to change. They work very rapidly — often in a blink of an eye switching off an old life, defragging you and rebooting you. They uproot you, surprise you and nudge you to a new level of your personal evolution or unfolding.
The fallout and repercussions from this eclipse will ripple through your life for the next 6 months and the dust is still settling as the seismic window is wide open and active for the next few days. As Awakener Uranus stations to turn direct on Sunday January 6th, there are now zero planets retrograde until early March plus no fewer than 5 planets at maximum influence in their own signs — watch as the momentum for mundane magical change builds and builds. Whatever 15-23 degrees earthy initiator Capricorn activates in your birth mandala is going to be your point of leverage for the next 16 months. The South Node of Fate approaching Pluto brings a personal and collective encounter with Shiva — a choice point, a separation of worlds and time-lines that will be visceral — a radical scything away of what kept you in thrall to the outlived.
Release, cut away and permanently leave by the wayside anything or anyone that does not serve your highest expression – no choice. Whatever feels old, negative, inflamed, toxic, repetitive, without purpose, head in the sand, fears, doubts, emotional drains: whatever was created in 3D distortion, must go — NOW.
If you commit to doing this, you make space for the downloads of possibility and inspiration from Hierophant Jupiter and limitless Neptune aligned with the Great Attractor. The Sun conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on Friday 11th makes decisions irreversible — you’re either all in or all out. And as for your comfort zone, it doesn’t exist anymore.

The Chandra Symbol Aries 29 Uranus Direct: Dr. Jekyll Drinks the Poison

“The unconscious mind contains seeds of worlds which the conscious mind had 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, playfully or mischievously, candidly or surreptitiously, all of the hidden places. So that nobody can deny how much of our energy and resource indwells the deep and how all of our being longs to be known, to be seen, to be activated, to partake in the dance of life freely.”

Aries Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

The intense eclipse on Saturday at the pinnacle of your chart has defragged and rebooted aspects of your career or purpose. It may be far too early to see where it’s going but watch for people leaving-co-workers, managers or bosses -and/or new possibilities appearing out of a clear blue sky. The ripples and repercussions will last for 6 months. On Sunday 6th , unpredictable Uranus turns forward in your own sign for the last time reminding you that the magic happens outside your comfort zone. This is a rare opportunity to choose the path less followed as Uranus aligns with change agents Pluto and the Nodes of Fate.
Trust your instincts.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

As a pragmatic grounded Earth sign, the recent eclipse in compatible Capricorn should be giving you the leverage and momentum to finally make those big changes you’ve been mulling over. You already know that 2019/20 are set to be huge years of transformation for you when Uranus returns to Taurus for the first time in 84 years, shaking you out of your comfort zone. Rather than waiting for change to come at you from outside, collaborate now by thinking out of the box and setting some wildly impossible goals which are designed to set you free from all those responsibilities, roles and relationships you’ve long since outgrown.
Open your cage door — it’s not locked.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

The take no prisoners energy of change agents Saturn and Pluto is mitigated for you somewhat by Venus entering your opposite sign of Sagittarius. Venus is all about your desire nature – your tastes, your money, your relationships, your values, anything you love. It is about your magnetics — who and what you attract and repel. And it is about the degree of love, empathy, rapport and sponsorship you have for your Self. This month and this year, money in all its guises will be a focus for you. With Jupiter and Neptune behind you, you need to dream large. But before you do, check the security of your bank accounts, payments and contracts as Saturday’s eclipse is rearranging situations around you and you may be surprised by the knock-on effect.
Show me the money.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

The dust hasn’t even begun to settle from Saturday’s solar eclipse in your opposite sign so make no judgments yet about whether the impact is good or bad. In any case, just like falling dominoes, the repercussions and implications will take until June to work themselves out. Of all the signs, you have the Gods of Change reaching down into your life and shaking it up. Saturn, Pluto and the Node of Fate often act as wrecking balls demolishing whatever is unstable or outgrown in your life. Only after the initial shock, do you notice how it’s made space for new green shoots to grow. So take a step back, make your emotional and physical wellbeing your absolute priority and let the chips fall where they may.
When something’s over, it’s over.

Leo Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

Saturday’s potent solar eclipse activated your 6thHouse of work, routine and service, so many of you will have started the New Year with your nose to the grindstone. That’s not as dour as it sounds as that’s where your greatest opportunities lie this week, this month and this year. With Jupiter and Venus expanding your natural creativity and enthusiasm, and Mars and unpredictable Uranus shaking you out of your comfort zone making you yearn for new horizons, let your imagination run wild. Collaborate with the relentless pressure to change by thinking out of the box or, better still, stamping on the box. And find some enjoyable ways to upgrade your physical health and wellbeing so you can keep going like the Duracell bunny.
Be the change agent and take back control.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

The recent eclipse in Capricorn was in a compatible Earth sign so you may be finding creative ways to deal with the change in circumstances it’s delivering. But, however you slice and dice it, Saturn and Pluto are heavy hitting planets, bringing change whether you like it or not. The saving grace is limitless Neptune in your relationship zone aligned with gift-bringer Jupiter in your zone of roots and belonging. Make it your top priority to turn your home into a sanctuary regardless of what’s unfolding around you so you can retreat from the dramas swirling around you for a while until the dust settles. When you emerge, you’ll see more clearly.
Getting perspective.

Libra Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

As one of the 4 cardinal signs, you are in the eye of the eclipse storm. Relentless change agents Saturn and Pluto are not an easy ride — they ruthlessly clear out the old so that eventually new growth can occur. The challenge is in relinquishing control as circumstances change around you. For you as a Libran both your home and your partnerships are in the frame and it looks as if some hard choices need to be made. There’s no leeway for skating over the surface or hiding your head in the sand. Just face it head on and do the next right thing — you’ll know what that is when you come to it.
What’s gone is gone.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

Instead of reacting emotionally to the fallout from Saturday’s solar eclipse, look for the new learning and fresh insights it’s offering you. With so many planets in your 3rd House of communication and connection plus awakener Uranus turning forward in your creativity zone, just behind the upheavals radically fresh thinking is available to you once you slow down and look. With your ruler Pluto in the eye of the eclipse, search for clues to what’s been hidden under the radar or for information that’s been kept from you. What you find could change your direction.
Knowledge is power.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

Your brave new world just got better. On Tuesday Venus returns to your sign to join expansive Jupiter. Think of it as being given a golden key to the door of opportunity. Whilst others (probably in the work space) may be resistant or difficult, use your charm, enthusiasm and strategic thinking to make headway towards your biggest dreams and goals. Make sure your finances are rock solid, double-check the bottom line and put strong foundations under your blueprint for success. If the recent eclipse has exposed weaknesses, deal with it then move on.
Holding all the aces.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

Saturday’s rare and powerful New Moon eclipse in the heart of your own sign is cutting away anything or anyone that was holding you back. If someone leaves, let them go -there’s no second act. It’s far too early to make a judgment on the eclipse fallout as the dust is still settling so let the chips fall where they may and carry on carrying on. Now is when your most valuable Capricornian qualities of determination, persistence, endurance and strategic thinking can come into play. Let others cut corners or skate over the surface-you, of all the signs, understand that superficiality is counter-productive. So, no short term fixes, just an eye to the long term future.
Game on.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

If you’re feeling below par, flattened, demotivated or just plain weary, it’s down to the recent eclipse detonating the deepest part of your chart. With the Sun, Moon plus several heavy planets in the unconscious engine room of your psyche, you can definitely feel big shifts and changes but they remain frustratingly elusive and just out of sight. Between now and January 21st when the Sun returns to Aquarius, recharges your battery and a lunar eclipse nudges you back on track, make your physical and emotional wellbeing your top priority. Then you can deal with anything.
In the dark.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: January 6–13, 2019

As a sensitive sign rules by shapeshifter Neptune, you find it harder than most to confront heavy hitters Saturn and Pluto in down to earth Capricorn and doubly so in the shape of a jarring uncomfortable eclipse. You just don’t operate on the same frequency. So the changes in circumstances since Saturday’s New Moon eclipse are a challenge. Whatever you do, don’t bury your head in the sand or ignore the elephant under the carpet. Face the issues head on, once and for all. Turn your weaknesses into assets and don’t let anything or anyone knock you off course.
Think of it as cross training.
