6 Keys to Successfully Making the Shift to the New Earth

30th July 2016

By Jeff Street

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Look around. The great shift in the consciousness of humanity has hit critical mass and passed the point of no return. It’s been building slowly but surely, and now it’s about to kick into high gear. The next decade or so will be a period of enormous change and perhaps more than a little turbulence. Think of this as the process of humanity going into labor as it begins to birth a new earth reality.

In this article, I offer what I consider the six keys to smoothly and successfully making the shift to the New Earth and becoming a charter member of a wonderful new era of humanity. Before diving into the practical advice that I have to offer, I’ll briefly explore the shift that is underway.

As always, my articles are simply my perspective that I offer in the spirit of discovery and empowerment. Take what resonates for you, and leave the rest behind.

The Metabolic Model of Cancer: How Nutrition and Diet Influences Cancer

29th July 2016

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Is it possible that chromosomal damage is simply a marker for cancer and not the actual cause of the disease? Compelling evidence suggests this is the case, and in the featured lecture, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Gary Fettke reviews some of this evidence.

Having battled cancer himself, Fettke came to realize the influence of nutrition on cancer, and the importance of eating a diet high in healthy fats and low in net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber, i.e. non-fiber carbs). Fettke is not the only one promoting the metabolic model of cancer.

Earlier this year I interviewed Travis Christofferson, author of a phenomenal book on this topic, called “Tripping Over the Truth: The Return of the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Illuminates a New and Hopeful Path to a Cure“.

Media Bias and the Illusion of Democracy

29th July 2016

By Ryan Cristian

Guest writer for Wake Up World

The mainstream media in the US has become a universal joke. Even those who regularly watch a given mainstream news channel will openly admit that every channel has obvious bias, and then justify their viewing it by saying, “but that is why I watch both channels; to hear both sides.”

This has become the common answer to how an American stays informed in this age of blatant pandering and misinformation. What should be shocking to anyone who can stand back and remember the honor-bound public service that was originally envisioned of media, is that the obvious bias has become so pronounced and commonplace that it is now an accepted part of the process. Many would propose that the news had never lived up to those grandiose idealistic pillars of impartiality and morality that were visualized, and that may indeed be the case. Yet that does not change the fact that these people were given a mandate they have failed to live up to, and likely never even feigned an attempt at — once they recognized the value of selling their interests to the highest-bidding corporate sponsor.

Why Do So Many Americans Defend the Failed Capitalist Experiment?

28th July 2016

By Paul Buchheit

Guest writer for Wake Up World

People vastly underestimate the wealth gap in the United States, guessing that the poorest 40 percent own about 10% of the wealth — when in reality the poorest 40 percent own much less than 1% of the wealth.

Capitalism has worked for big business and for the people with stocks and estates. But for the past 35 years our economic system, stripped of sensible regulations, has poisoned the U.S. nation with deadly inequality and driven much of middle America to an ever-widening lower class.

Yet for much of the nation the delusion persists, against all common sense, that deregulated free-market capitalism works, that it equates to true Americanism, and that people have only themselves to blame for their failure to thrive in this expanding world of wealth. The reasons for this delusion are not so hard to determine…

How a City in Denmark is Fighting Terrorism With an Unconventional Strategy — and Winning

“Every minute, I just imagine him in that solitary confinement, facing 20 years, because I cooperated with the government. It’s a horrible feeling. I can’t get rid of it,” said Sal Shafi, father of Adam, a 22-year-old American suspected of Islamic extremism.

Last year Mr. Shafi phoned the American embassy in Cairo, Egypt while visiting family because Adam had disappeared and flown to Turkey, apparently to witness the plight of the refugees there. After the family’s return to the United States, Mr. Shafi was contacted by the FBI. Against the advice of his attorney, he answered their questions on several occasions. “We don’t have criminal minds,” Mr. Shafi told the New York Times. “Maybe I’m naïve. I’ve never dealt with the authorities before. I wanted to cooperate.” Shortly thereafter, agents showed up in the early morning hours with guns drawn, looking for Adam. Arrest and prison time is the only option in America for suspected radicalized individuals. If Mr. Shafi had known how the situation was to play out with his son, he would have chosen a different path to help Adam. As it stands, he warns “Don’t even think about going to the government.”

9 Uses For Hemp You Won’t Learn From Mainstream Media

27th July 2016

By Amanda Froelich

These are the most newsworthy benefits of industrial hemp corporate media won’t teach you about.

Although the negative stigma associated with cannabis has lessened in recent years – especially since THC- and CBD-rich oils were found to be a powerful aid in fighting cancer – it still hasn’t garnered full support from the public.

This is unfortunate, as hemp is one of the most versatile (and longest cultivated) crops on the planet and can be used for a variety of practical and economical uses. According to some sources, the crop is humanity’s answer to creating a cleaner energy source that can replace nuclear power, removing radioactive water from the soil, and eliminating smog from skies in industrialized areas. In addition, nationwide hemp production (which creates more oxygen than standard crops) could eliminate deforestation by converting current paper to hemp paper, which can be recycled up to 8 times. Compare this to wood pulp, which is only recyclable up to 3 times. Finally, hemp seeds are incredibly nutritious and can even serve as a suitable feed for animals and livestock.

The Black Sheep – Is It Okay to Leave Your Biological Family?

23rd July 2016

By Lia Love

Guest writer for Wake Up World

“You did not invent these family habits. Your family is like mine; for thousands and thousands of years our families have embraced a dysfunctional lifestyle, passing these habits as gospel on to subsequent generations. This was not done out of malice, spite, or hate, but what they knew best.” ~ David W. Earle

As we heal our family-related aspects, our personal energy patterns and behaviors change. As we evolve, awaken and become more aware, our past participation in negative family patterns emerge, are magnified and become obvious. Our participation no longer appeals to or nurtures us. This can be especially so if trauma and drama are the norm within the family.

Because of the connectivity with our biological family, our healing impacts the family patterns. Our healing may be a premium invitation for the family to take a look at their own unhealed and active aspects, especially family-related ones. Yet there can be resistance to our change, and their healing, if established familial patterns continue to serve them. Families can become stuck in ruts, comfortable with the status quo and unwilling to make the herculean step of getting out of disfunction.

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Many of us are aware that genetically engineered (GE) foods and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are harmful to health and the environment. But how can you effectively respond to friends and family who have fallen for the oft-repeated fallacies and myths about GMO safety and efficacy?

Claire Robinson is the editor of GM Watch, which is based in the U.K.. Together with genetic engineers Drs John Fagan and Michael Antoniou, she also co-authored the book “GMO Myths and Truths,” which can be a very helpful resource.

Introduction to the Growing Earth Theory

 21st July 2016

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

As the days pass, there is a growing number of people who have begun to wake up and explore many aspects of life that were once thought to be concrete, only to realize that the world might operate a lot differently then they previously thought. Some of those include the banking system, history, geopolitics, consciousness, and the list could go on and on. There seems to be a massive number of rabbit holes to go down, with a plethora of new findings about reality that often times alters the way in which they view reality.

While all the pieces are not put together yet, it seems that the ‘growing Earth’ theory (like the ‘flat Earth’ theory) is but another one of those areas which people might want to take a look at and explore…

Monsanto, Big Pharma, George Soros, and the Push to Legalize Marijuana

20th July 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

When it comes down to it, corporations have just one purpose: turn a large profit for shareholders. So it should come as no surprise that corporate America has turned its eye toward the wildly successful recreational cannabis movement. In 2015 alone, legal pot sales in the United States jumped 17% to $5.4 billion and are expected to grow 25% this year — an estimated $6.7 billion in U.S. sales. And, of course, corporate interests want their share.

But it’s not simply a modern day gold rush, many feel there is an underlying agenda at hand — with a few very wealthy individuals pulling the strings.

The Evolutionary Intention of the ‘Pluto in Scorpio’ Generation: 1983–1995

18th July 2016

By Simon Vorster & Jennifer Langstone

Contributing writers for Wake Up World

Born between November 1983 and November 1995, as the planet Pluto transited the sign of Scorpio, those in the ‘Pluto in Scorpio’ generation are bringers of radical transformation.

It is really clear to many of us that we, the human collective, are experiencing a dramatic shift in our perception of reality. The way we relate, structure and create our future reality is undergoing a dramatic metamorphosis. The Pluto in Scorpio generation have come through at this time to help the evolution of the collective consciousness and aid this change in human experience.

The Pluto in Scorpio generation carries the exact energetic blueprints required to create a major shift in perception. However, in order for this experience to manifest itself from potential into reality, those in the Pluto in Scorpio generation must undergo a total metamorphosis of their own individual karma, thus activating the direct experiences and spiritual awakenings necessary for this new awareness to be anchored into the collective consciousness, and ultimately, into our physical lives.

In this article, we will discuss the karmic challenges specific to this generation and, hopefully, help awaken them to their important mission on behalf of humanity.

Forget Dangerous Pharmaceuticals — Here’s How to Help Heal Autism, ADHD and More With Natural Therapies

“It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a child with autism to raise the consciousness of the village.” ~ Elaine Hall

Healing Without Hurting

When your child suffers from autism, ADD/ADHD, anxiety or other developmental and behavioral issues, it’s easy to fall into the trap of a promised ‘quick fix’ regarding pharmaceutical medications. After all, you trust your child’s doctor, what’s to question? As it turns out, quite a bit.

Unfortunately, most parents are not told that these pharmaceuticals can unleash a host of unpleasant, if not dangerous, side-effects — including increased anger, depression, fogginess, as well as seizures, paranoia, tics and psychosis. Many times, parents feel these effects are worse than the original ailment the meds were aimed to treat. But this doesn’t mean you have to choose between pharmaceutical intervention or simply suffering through the disorder. A myriad of natural therapies and treatments have a strong track record of improving the lives of countless children diagnosed with developmental delay and behavioral issues.
