Marijuana Prohibition and The Suppression of The Divine Feminine

25th May 2015

Marijuana is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine. Say what? This is what you may say on reading that marijuana embodies divinity at all. However this is my belief, which I will explain. (Of course take my thoughts with a grain of salt. What do I know? I’m just the son of a registered nurse and a farmer.)

The cannabis plant has traditionally been revered, with many useful applications from agricultural to medicinal to spiritual. Providing nutritious food, potent medicine, sustainable fuel, low-impact building material and consciousness expanding herb, cannabis is a nurturer of humanity. It is no wonder the hyper-masculine, partriarchal corporate-government complex has dared to outlaw it.

In the title of this article I refer to marijuana prohibition, but as I will explain, “marijuana prohibition” has three distinct aspects: the prohibition of hemp in favour of less effective, more profitable (for some) agricultural practices; the elimination of the natural (ie. free) health-care offered by cannabis and hemp seed; and the suppression of the spiritual potential of cannabis as a consciousness-altering herb.

The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered – It’s Not What You Think

26th May 2015

It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned, and all through this long century of waging war on drugs, we have been told a story about addiction by our teachers and by our governments. This story is so deeply ingrained in our minds that we take it for granted. It seems obvious. It seems manifestly true. Until I set off three and a half years ago on a 30,000-mile journey for my new book, Chasing The Scream: The First And Last Days of the War on Drugs, to figure out what is really driving the drug war, I believed it too. But what I learned on the road is that almost everything we have been told about addiction is wrong, and there is a very different story waiting for us, if only we are ready to hear it.

If we truly absorb this new story, we will have to change a lot more than the drug war. We will have to change ourselves.

The Consciousness of Plants

26th May 2015

By Paul Lenda

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Plant consciousness is evidenced by the process of bio-communication in plant cells, which means that plants are sentient life forms that feel, know, and are conscious. The scientific field of neurobiology has been effective in demonstrating plant consciousness.

Consciousness exists in everything, but manifests itself in different ways. With the reality that all matter is energy vibrating at different frequencies, it is reasonable to say that all matter has consciousness in its unique way, since all matter comes from the same source and is comprised at its basics level of the same building blocks. This can be seen in DNA consciousness as well. This universal principle is true for any state of energy – be it a solid, liquid, gas or plasma – and manifest as plant, animal, human, crystalline, and higher-dimensional life forms.

Weather Modification Causing Global Climate Chaos and Environmental Catastrophe

What major factor causing “Climate Change” are they not telling us about?

More alarming articles and studies are surfacing each day which confirm the rapidly changing state of Earth’s life support systems and climate. Humanity has decimated the planet in countless ways and the repercussions are becoming catastrophic.

Though there are certainly many parts to this unfolding story, the largest piece of the puzzle by far still goes completely unacknowledged by most of the scientific community and all of the mainstream media-corporate-military-industrial complex. The massive elephant in the room has been, and still is, “stratospheric aerosol geoengineering” (SAG) also known as “solar radiation management” (SRM).

What Is Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering and Why Is It So Dangerous?

Spiritual Honesty: Why Good Thinking and Bad Feelings Matter

25th May 2015

“To learn about spirituality, to become spiritual, you have to give up all you think is spiritual.”

Without honesty, we live in disaccord with reality, which bears all kinds of hidden problems. Honesty is truth, and refers to the accurate perception of ourselves, each other, and the outside world.

We can only heal to the degree that we are honest, for what goes unnoticed, especially inside us, will remain largely unchanged. Our spirituality is no exception. In this vein, I will first discuss intellectual and emotional honesty as a build-up to spiritual honesty. So, please bear with me while I set the stage for this fruit of our best-used inner resources.

Blueberries and lemon are a match made in heaven. They dance and twirl on the taste buds creating an exquisite medley of flavours.

Even Positive People Have Negative Thoughts

We are all one thought away from happiness, but most of us don’t realise it. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could realise that and act on it? It’s all about our ability to realise that a thought isn’t real. Once we realise it’s not real, we can change it.

How can you tell the difference between a thought that you should pay attention to and one that’s trying to lead you astray? They all seem the same.

The subconscious is in charge for at least 90% of the day. It’s a primitive and defensive part of the brain. I think this is why we often focus on those things that aren’t right in our life (instead of those that are). There is a quote I often see shared “Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have”.

A high-stress lifestyle coupled with improper eating habits can wreak havoc on a woman’s delicate hormonal balance. Even healthy women who follow a good diet may find glitches in their hormones.

Relationships – The Four Golden Threads

24th May 2015

By Victoria Fann

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” ~ Lisa Kleypas

In order for an intimate relationship to be healthy and sustainable, The Four Golden Threads — Physical, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual — need to be active and connected between two people. When entering into an intimate relationship, many people don’t pause long enough to make sure that all of these threads are lit up and in alignment with their partner. This simple misstep can lead to short-term pain or long-term misery, especially when two mismatched partners get married and have children together. Ultimately, what’s missing in the beginning will be the thing that derails the relationship in the end.
