Feeling overwhelmed, confused, stressed, hesitant? How is your physical health?

As we move along this 2015 timeline, we are progressing through an interesting configuration of energetic patterns that are really shifting and shaping our evolution. We are experiencing some very contradictory energies, and this is causing chaos and confusion to arise. The influx of “GO!” energy we felt at the start of this year filled us with an incredible sense of excitement, motivation, and feeling of possibility. While that energetic surge is still being felt, this recent shift in energy has caused an internal feeling of confusion.

On the one hand we are feeling big bursts of enthusiasm while on the other, it seems like everything is mundane and difficult; and this feeling of conflict is manifesting in both our physical and energetic bodies.

You probably already know about some of the dangers that severe air pollution exposure can cause and how places like stoplights at intersections can increase your exposure to harmful air particles up to 29 times more than the open road. While these facts are startling, you probably don’t know about the almost invisible dangers. [1] Namely the numerous diseases and cognitive issues now being linked to air pollution. Here we’ll get into five ways you’re letting air pollution destroy your health.

The Hidden Dangers of Air Pollution

Despite the slow turn to more sustainable forms of agriculture and industry, air pollution is still a big problem. Here are just some of the ways air pollution negatively affects your health.

How to Really, Truly Surrender to the Divine

28th May 2015

By Lissa Rankin MD

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Those of you who have been following my blog and reading what I post on Facebook know what a profound influence Tosha Silver has had on my life and my work. The way in which we met was magical.  Christiane Northrup and I had been teaching a class to the Whole Health Medicine Institute. Christiane insisted that all of us go out right that second and buy Tosha’s book Outrageous Openness. I bought it instantly and was halfway through reading it the next day, when I was on a plane to LA to film a documentary, when I got online on the airplane, looked up Tosha’s website, realized she lived right across the San Francisco Bay from me, and decided to write her a gushing fan letter. It went something like, “OMG, you don’t know who I am, but I’m in love with your book, and I live in San Francisco too, and we should . . . um . . . totally be BFF’s!” I signed up for her newsletter list because I knew that whatever Tosha was drinking, I wanted a Big Gulp of it.

Extra Terrestrial Life – Hiding the Truth in Plain Sight

28th May 2015

By Makia Freeman

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Hiding truth in plain sight is a favorite tactic of the elite. The biggest factor working in their favor is massive and widespread public incredulity at their schemes, because the scale is simply unimaginable for the average person to comprehend. It is indeed hard to swallow that a tiny group of people, disconnected from compassion, empathy and the rest of humanity, would actively promote war, depopulation and the destruction of the Earth, but the evidence proves it to the case: from Kissinger’s 1974 Memorandum 200 (depopulation) to the spraying of our skies with toxic metals (geoengineering).

However, as bad as that is, it still has not gone so deep into the rabbit hole. If you really want an outlandish and ostentatious example of hiding truth in plain sight, check out the short clip below, where Barack Obama glibly coats the truth of alien intervention with a layer of calculated sarcasm.

Groundbreaking New Documentary Offers Real Solutions for Our Food Security and Environmental Troubles

“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.” ~ Bill Mollison

A revolution is quietly sweeping across the globe, one that works in harmony with nature to create abundance for all life — including us. The method has been around for some time now, but it’s experiencing a resurgence of interest as ecological repair and regeneration becomes an urgent issue of survival for the planet.

Permaculture works within the structure and efficiency of nature — rather than attempting to dominate and control the natural world as we have in the past. This symbiotic relationship can be used in a wide-array of systems, from building and technology, to education and economics. However, it is best known for its application within agriculture, a practice that offers real life solutions to our food security and environmental troubles. This is the subject of a groundbreaking new documentary, Inhabit: A Permaculture Perspective.

Are Your Thoughts and Beliefs Really Yours?

27th May 2015

By Dr. Michelle Kmiec

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

To explain the concept of molding your thoughts and beliefs to someone else’s idea of what is or isn’t, we must take a look at how our minds work when it comes to believing or not believing that something exists.

Many perceive the human mind is of finite boundaries. In other words, we must be able to see things in a tangible manner; in a way that the mind can perceive the information. (Of course our minds are not finite, but the Scientific Method has not evolved to take that into account; at least not yet). We do this by putting any gathered information in some sort of order, in boxes or a file cabinet if you like, so that we are able to understand the information that enters our senses. If we see something that doesn’t make sense, we can’t just allow it to be simply something that doesn’t make sense… we must make sense out of the non-sense.

How is this done? By using previously gathered information, which at all costs must be explainable, repeatable, and tangible in order to be considered “real”. Never mind that this method excludes a multitude of existing information. Kind of like how important evidence can be thrown out of a court of law due to improper procedures.

Jade Helm and the American Massacre

27th May 2015

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

I’m prefacing my thoughts with this provocative title for a reason. What is being perpetrated on the American people is virtually a complete dissembling of everything they supposedly hold dear and will only lead to their ultimate destruction. A nationwide massacre of their infrastructure, personal rights and protection, and even livelihoods and food security is not only at stake, but now in progress.

Let me number my points.

1) Jade Helm is a military exercise endorsed by the American government and perpetrated on its own people in complete violation of not just the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878  but is a total affront on every civil liberty the US Constitution and Bill of Rights is supposed to espouse and maintain.

Marijuana Prohibition and The Suppression of The Divine Feminine

26th May 2015

By Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

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

By Johann Hari

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

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.
