Are You a Conspiracy Theorist? Or a Coincidence Theorist?

By Andy Whiteley

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Are you a conspiracy theorist? Or a coincidence theorist? Our world is a mess – but is it by intentional design, or random happenstance?

We all know our world has gone mad, and many of us shake our heads wondering how we got here. Ineffective government, endless resource wars, failing economic and education systems, planetary degradation; very little about our current global circumstances reflects our hopes and dreams and goals; our shared wants for peace, for justice, for technological progress that supports not destroys our planet. It does not reflect our innermost nature, which yearns for peace and abundance. And yet, no matter what we do, no matter who we vote for or what they promise to do, or how many of us also feel humanity is on a slippery slope to its own demise, for some reason, we (collectively) keep marching boldly on in the wrong direction.

Strangely, many even go as far as questioning the sanity of those who believe all this is not by accident but by design, and dismiss “conspiracy theorists” as lunatics and uncritical thinkers. If that sounds like you – if you’ve used the phrase “conspiracy theorist” as a derogatory term – open your mind and consider what I’m about to say, if only for the 3 minutes as it takes to read it.

Mandatory Vaccination – What You Need To Consider

By Andy Whiteley

Co-Founder of Wake Up World

In June this year Bill SB277 was controversially signed into Californian State law, which legislates that all school-age children in California are subjected to mandatory vaccinations according to the State’s vaccine schedule. Its passing into law was seen as a major loss in the fight for freedom of choice and parental rights by both human rights groups and the anti-vaccination lobby.

Going a step further, legislators in Australia have recently passed laws that require both children and young adults to be vaccinated in order to receive family tax benefits payments. The newly passed “No Jab, No Pay” laws (see: Social Services Legislation Amendment) will commence as of January 2016 — at the same time that mandatory vaccination laws also in California take effect.

Cancer, Coverups and Contamination: The Real Cost of Nuclear Energy

By Contributing Writer Andreas Toupadakis Ph.D*

and Andy Whiteley, Co-Founder of Wake Up World

“When the Chernobyl accident happened some of the iodine went around the world several times. In fact, you, I, everyone – we all have a piece of Chernobyl in our body…” ~ Theoretical physicist and author Michio Kaku

Disinformation is a component of any propaganda. The highly paid technocrats and advocates of “peaceful uses of the atom” increasingly use disinformation to repress and control public protest against nuclear pollution and environmental injustice.

As a former employee of two US national nuclear labs*, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory, and after having seen what I have seen, NO, I am NOT an advocate of nuclear power. Unfortunately, most so-called experts on these issues talk in front of a blackboard, but that is not what nuclear materials are; they are not theory and calculations on paper, as most academics around the world seem to think, but destructive beasts that kill people without any discrimination. Let them go and get dressed like astronauts with breathing masks, and experience nuclear accidents, and be contaminated first hand, and see after that if they will still favor nuclear energy.

Unexplained Deaths Continue to Rock the Health World… So Why Aren’t Officials Connecting the Dots?

14th September 2015

By Andy Whiteley

Co-Founder of Wake Up World

Over the past several months, there has been a series of at least 11 unexplained deaths and disappearances of holistic physicians and health practitioners in the United States. These deaths include Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, a renowned holistic medical doctor who specialized in holistic cancer treatmentDr. Jeff Bradstreet, a leading autism researcher and physician, and Teresa Sievers MD, an Integrative Medicine practitioner who operated Florida’s Restorative Health and Healing Center.

Last week, further news surfaced of the poisoning of 29 holistic doctors and homeopathic practitioners with a controlled substance, 2C-E, during a professional conference near Hamburg, Germany. (Despite‘s claims of “debunking” this story, German news networks Der Spiegel and Northern German Broadcasting (NDR) have confirmed these facts.)

And now, this disturbing trend continues with the shooting death of Brian Short, the founder of popular health website, and his entire family at their home in Greenwood, Minnesota.

Jayden’s Legacy: Hope From Jayden

17th June 2015

By Andy Whiteley

Co-Founder of Wake Up World

Regular readers of Wake Up World will remember our articles from late 2014 following the progress of Jayden Wilson, the 5 year old UK boy whose parents opted to treat his grade-4 brain tumor with Cannabis Oil after pharmaceutical cancer protocols (including radiation) failed. What you may not have heard is that, despite signs he was becoming “his cheeky little self again”, sadly, little Jayden passed away at his home with his family early on Christmas morning, and was cremated in a family service on the 8th of January 2015.

Following Jayden’s passing, his father Michael Wilson (also known as “SpiderDad“) reached out to Wake Up World again to let our readers know the sad news, and to express his gratitude for the incredible amount of support his family received from around the world (especially the UK). He and his family sincerely wish to thank everyone who showed them such kindness and support during this difficult time.

Michael is now firmly focussed on honoring Jayden’s legacy in the best way he knows how…

Is Matriotism The Future of The Divine Feminine?

By Ethan Indigo Smith and Andy Whiteley

Contributing Writers for Wake Up World

The most difficult function we ever learn is how to use language; how to communicate thoughts, needs, feelings and ideas into sounds. The complex nuances of language and communication are the most difficult things we learn as humans, and also the most powerful and important tool we have. Without language, we would not be able to cooperate to obtain food, clothing and shelter with the efficiency we do.

But it’s much more than that. With the right sentiment, at the proper time, one word can change a society, inspiring it to new understandings, directions and achievements. And conversely, with the opposite sentiment, words can tear a society to pieces or manipulate its consciousness into willing submission. What we communicate, and how, has the power to change the world. Just as importantly, language, its interpretation and its transformation over time reveals a lot about the collective consciousness of the society that speaks it.

Conservation or Corruption? Preserving the Sacred Land at Bambara

23rd February 2015

By Andy Whiteley

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Bambara, meaning “Forest” in a local Aboriginal language, is an area of great cultural and environmental significance. Consisting of around 180 acres of native bushland on Australia’s Central Coast, it is home to 35 known threatened flora and fauna species including the Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua) and the iconic Koala (Phascolarctus cinereus), whose local population is nearly extinct.

The traditional lands of the Indigenous Guringai and Darkinoong people, Bambara has an incredible number of Aboriginal engravings, cave paintings and artefacts on display, including 23 registered Aboriginal sites and countless unregistered sites. It is part of a known “Song line”, which is a network of ancient tracks walked by Aboriginal tribes for millennia, connecting sacred ceremonial sites and other culturally significant spaces around the Australian continent (including a sacred women’s site at Calga).

The False Politics and Faulty Science of Climate Change

8th December 2014

By Ethan Indigo Smith and Andy Whiteley

Contributing Writer and Co-Founder of Wake Up World

The carbon emissions=climate changedebate is a redundant distraction to the broader actuality of humanity’s blatantly destructive environmental practicesThe question at the core of the climate discussion is not if the planet is warming, or whether carbon levels are to blame, the question is whether our current way of life on planet earth is sustainable. Yet this supposedly scientific debate has deteriorated to narrow political rhetoric that keeps us debating the details, not the central issue.

Is human activity negatively affecting our planet’s health, and risking humanity’s future? – Yes. Are our current practices sustainable? – No. Are carbon emissions the single cause that is altering our environment such that it is causing global temperatures to increase? – There is little scientific consensus, but it is secondary to the broader matter at hand.

Whatever the temperature may be, or how wild the storms, it is only a symptom of our collective disconnection from Mother Nature. Living a lifestyle that is incompatible with nature, we have allowed our atmosphere, water, soil and food supplies all to be ruined by ever-increasing environmental, industrial and agricultural poisons. And now, with unprecedented rates of disease affecting ‘developed’ nations, the irrefutable reality of our increasingly toxic lives — changing climate or not — is reason enough to end the narrow carbon debate and initiate the many systemic reforms we know are now essential to our survival.

Geoengineering and the Nuclear Connection

By Ethan Indigo Smith and Andy Whiteley

Contributing Writer and Founder of Wake Up World

The complexity of nuclear experimentation is beyond the pale of postmodern human comprehension. It also reveals, although we would like to believe otherwise, our inability or unwillingness to consider the unseen. Whether it is invisible because of ethereal origins or because it is nano-sized poison does not matter; collectively we tend to obfuscate the unseen. Nuclear experimentation also reveals our collective inability to conceptualize time, and to understand just how long nuclear radiation lasts in our environment – and how long our karma lasts.

This short-sightedness was not always the case. Indigenous cultures across Turtle Island, A.K.A. North America, knew they would one day return home to the spirit world, and that their stay here on Earth was equivalent to the blink of an eye. So they considered the Rule of Seven Generations when implementing procedures that would alter the planet in any way, beginning with harvesting herbs, to ensure their society’s long term sustainability. In fact, the indigenous cultures were so considerate of their people’s future as to make sure there would be enough herbs left seven generations from the harvest. Understanding their place in the delicate ecosystem, the Turtle Islanders contemplated the unseen and the distant future, always.

Today we have collectively foregone such considerations. And it was no accident that brought us here.

Hieroglyphics Experts Declare Ancient Egyptian Carvings in Australia to be AUTHENTIC

October 2014

By Patricia Awyan

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Foreword by Wake Up World co-founder Andy WhiteleyThe continuing research of Egypt’s Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism is focused on the implications of the evidence left behind for us to discover by the indigenous and the ancients of Egypt. Drawing on the expertise of hieroglyphics expert Mohamed Ibrahim and Khemit School Co-Director Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan (who has studied ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs his entire life), the Khemit School Team has worked tirelessly over recent months, deciphering the mysterious (and hotly disputed) set of around 300 early-Egyptian hieroglyphs carved into remote rock walls in bushland near Gosford NSW, on Australia’s east coast.

And the result? Not only has the Khemit team deemed the Gosford ‘Glyphs legitimate, they believe the scribes who created them accurately used a number of ancient hieroglyphs and ‘grammatical’ variations that were not even documented in Egyptian hieroglyphic texts until 2012. And as hieroglyphics (like any language) evolves over time, the specific style of script used offers a linguistic time-frame that suggests there was an Egyptian presence in Australia at least 2,500 years ago — 500BC or earlier. The translated text is even so detailed as to identify the ancient scribes, by name and occupation.

In this historic interview and presentation, Patricia Awyan (Co-Director of the Khemit School) along with hieroglyphics experts Mohamed Ibrahim and Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan of the Khemit School, provide details of their research and translation methodologies, and offer translations and analyses of the narratives on the walls of the historic Gosford ‘glyphs.

If We Are Free Sovereign Beings, Why Do We Ask For Permission?

13th October 2014

By Andy Whiteley

Co-Founder of Wake Up World

Sovereignty is a concept fundamental to our freedom. Without individual sovereignty, we are merely slaves. Without true independence, we may only walk someone else’s path.

As humanity continues to wake up to our true nature of being, to our divine relationship with our world and unbroken connection to the Source of life, it is crucial that we truly understand what it is to be a ‘sovereign being’. To begin, let’s look at the definition of the word ‘sovereign’ so we all start on the same page.

The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘sovereign’ as:

Sovereign / (adjective):

  • Acting or done independently and without outside interference.
  • Possessing supreme or ultimate power.

So in considering our sovereignty, the question really is… Do we truly live “independently and without outside interference”? Do we possess “supreme or ultimate power” over our lives? And if not, who does? And why?

The River – Navigating Your Own Spiritual Route

By Andy Whiteley and Jennifer Deisher

Contributing Writers for Wake Up World

No one can define the river. The only one that can define the other is itself. Life is the river.

The intricate river of consciousness is a stream of oneness that flows around us, through us, and between us. We are all diverse beings, yet through it we are entirely interconnected.

The river is powerful, yet its flow is always shifting and changing direction. Its energy streams out in the boundless pattern of creation, creating fractal after infinite fractal, but always flows back to the same single source. Rising and falling, like a pulse, it never stops flowing.

As we ride the river, it brings us endless opportunities to change course, to shift our energetic focus. We come to crossing after crossing, decision after decision. But the collective current can be overwhelming, so we often plot the course that others have take, follow someone else’s map, or sail the route most familiar, forgetting or foregoing the truth that we are all navigators, living only to experience the limitless river, our own way.
