The Art of “Holding Space” for Others

4th May 2016

By Humberto Braga

Guest writer for Wake Up World

The world can be a demanding and difficult place, and we all need someone to help us through our dark times by holding space for us to process our emotions. You don’t need to be a therapist or a genius to hold space. Holding space is something we can all do for each other, whether it’s with our partners, our children, our friends, our pets, our neighbors, and even strangers in passing.

We all need it, yet relatively few of us actually know how to do it well, so let’s explore the art of holding space…

Why Education Must Come Back to Nature

3rd May 2016

By Will Stanton

Guest writer for Wake Up World

“Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world, we can’t expect them to help protect and care for it.” – David Suzuki

Humanity has lost its connection with the Earth. As a species, we too easily distance ourselves from the war being waged on the environment. Most of us are opposed to the destruction of the Amazon rainforest and the oil pollution in our oceans, yet we continue to let it all happen. We care, but we don’t care enough to put a stop to all the madness. Why? Because we have lost touch with nature. Sadly, we do not feel the planet’s hurt. Her cries of protest are falling on deaf ears. For the most part, we have become anaesthetised by modern society and the trappings of economic pragmatism.

It’s Time to Pop Your Conspiracy Theory Cherry

3rd May 2016

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Anyone who has spent the time going deep down the “rabbit hole” and researching in the realms of alternative information/conspiracy theory knows that a large majority of the world’s population hasn’t a clue as to what’s really going on in the world. However, all alternative researchers can relate to this because at one point they too were admittedly naïve and asleep to it all. In fact, almost all humans are born into some form of limited perception. There is a reason that the term “awakened” is often used by people in reference to their personal transformation from an in-the-box indoctrinated consumer to an open-minded free-thinker.

The Daily Alchemical Process of Ascension

2nd May 2016

By Open

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Whether aware or not, everyone is involved in the current higher dimensional shift of consciousness on Earth that is our Ascension. Everything is interconnected by consciousness, and the underlying flow is shifting into higher dimensions. Gaia has centred herself in the Fifth Density and inviting all life to join her there. It may sound a bit ‘out there’ to some, but when you examine it fully, you’ll find that every thought, emotion and feeling – indeed every action – in your life is being influenced by the interplay of the shift. You’re either making choices aligned with the surrendered flow of love, or else control and fear. If you can trust in the flow of love, then you’ll evolve, expand and attain a sublimely new way of living and being. Life becomes literally breath-taking… Continue Reading – The Daily Alchemical Process of Ascension

Be Like Water: The Need for Adaptive Fluidity

2nd May 2016

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

As the proliferation of staged events and the accompanying fear campaigns and predictable clampdowns ensue, it’s always good to take stock of any situation unfolding and assess how best to handle what’s transpiring. With the playing field changing at such a rapid rate, locally as well as globally, it’s wise to see how to perhaps adjust our sights as well as personal attitudes and outlook, all the while staying completely clear of any reaction with even the faintest smell of fear.

Any wise strategist knows you don’t fight today’s battles by yesterday’s instructions. Surely in big ideas there will be overarching plans that too will need to be adjusted accordingly, but the day-by-day, minute-by-minute decisions require thinking on your feet and being prepared, vigilant and most of all agile and adaptive are the ever present challenge. Not just now, but in the potentially confusing days to come.

Don’t Ask, Just Plant — Taking Back Our Food Sovereignty with Guerrilla Gardening

1st May 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

During both world wars, Victory Gardens were a staple throughout the United States, found everywhere from private residences to public lands and even the front lawns of city hall. Their purpose was simple: to reduce pressure from the public food supply during times of war. Victory Gardens also carried an unexpected perk, they helped boost morale during uncertain times by empowering gardeners through their contribution of labor and production of sorely needed fresh fruits and vegetables. Incredibly, these seemingly humble vegetable patches produced a staggering 41% of all fruits and vegetables consumed by the nation.

Jump to the present day and our system of food production would be all but unrecognizable to Victory Garden veterans. Instead of food self-sufficiency, we have homeowners persecuted for growing produce on their own property and children who think food comes packaged from the supermarket. Small farms are going bankrupt and being assimilated into industrial corporate farming operations. And when individuals push back against the hijacking of our food supply, they are met with fierce opposition, often stemming from local government.

Are You a Conspiracy Theorist? Or a Coincidence Theorist?

1st May 2016

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.

Are You Giving Away Your Power? – Politics, Sovereignty and Personal Embodiment

30th April 2016

By Bernhard Guenther

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

It has been a while since I wrote anything political, mostly for the reason that I’m not a statist, I don’t believe in government (or any other authority ruling/governing me), nor in national identification, and frankly don’t care much for politics. Readers of my blog know that we are dealing with far deeper issues that most people are not aware of and which go way beyond poly-tics, which is really a distraction from what is truly happening to humanity, especially in this day and age.

I have written several articles about the illusory political circus before: Voting, Cognitive Dissonance and Fear of the Unknown (2012), The Illusion of Choice (2010) – and in 2008, I exposed Obama for the corporate puppet that he is (resulting in vicious attacks against me by Liberals and Democrats, some of whom later saw through the deception as well), and the illusion that there is choice through voting (ie. Obama was “selected” to win way before any votes were cast).

However, lately I’m having a strange déjà vu seeing all the support and hype around Bernie Sanders, another presidential candidate who portrays the image of “hope”. Where did I hear that before?

Sugar is as Addictive as Cocaine – Here’s How You Can Kick the Habit

30th April 2016

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

“Some of the largest companies are now using brain scans to study how we react neurologically to certain foods, especially to sugar. They’ve discovered that the brain lights up for sugar the same way it does for cocaine.” ~ Michael Moss, Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us

To our ancestors, sugar was a precious commodity. Infrequently found in high concentrations in a typical ancestral diet, substances like honey and ripe fruit were seasonal treats to be savoured, as a means to gain energy and build up fat stores before winter. Today our brains are still wired to want to maximise our sugar intake, but because it is now so processed, cheap and abundant, this once beneficial substance is wreaking havoc with our health. With the average daily sugar intake in the US equalling 32 teaspoons, most people eat more sugar in a week than our ancestors would have consumed in a lifetime.

3 Cutting-Edge Ways to Overcome Your Depression and Anxiety

29th April 2016

By Jordan Fallis

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

When I fell into a deep depression in 2010, I felt like I would never be able to escape it. Doctors made it seem that antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication were my only options. That was it. I was left in the dark. I had no other options and nowhere to turn, so I had to resort to pharmaceuticals.

Since then, I’ve travelled down a road of intense research and self-experimentation. I found solutions that weren’t conventional and mainstream, and I witnessed significant improvements in my mental health. I’ve learned that you don’t need drugs, the medical system or a doctor to overcome depression, anxiety and mental disturbance. You need to tap into the magnificent healing potential of your body.

The Power Below The Surface – You Are So Much More Than You Can Imagine

29th April 2016

By Max Igan

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

What if we were powerful beyond measure? What if we were each individually capable of the most amazing things and collectively, to possess a creative potential so vast and wondrous that it cannot even be measured by any known standards? And what if our true potential had been purposely hidden from us and an enormous amount of effort had been undertaken to keep it that way?

People are seeing the truth of these statements now and they are beginning to feel the great potential that lies dormant inside them. That is a very positive thing and even though all are not yet awakened, most people now know, somewhere in the back of their minds that something is terribly wrong with the world today. People are beginning to feel again, and what they are feeling is that they are something more than they have been taught to believe they are and that there is something higher, more profound going on here. They often just cannot seem to put their finger on what it is that troubles them — but they know something is not right and the awareness and unease of it is there, always like a thorn or splinter, or a leaky faucet dripping somewhere in the back of their minds. People are beginning to realise that they are slaves. But how? How did it happen? How do we identify the prison? And how do we fix it?

Satanic Ritual Abuse: It’s Real, But It Can Be Healed

28th April 2016

By Makia Freeman

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Satanic ritual abuse is a stark reality for some children who are born into Illuminati bloodline families, or military families, or families with connections to mind control, or families with connections to the New World Order manipulators running the world today. Satanic ritual abuse seems to run in families, with each generation passing it along to the next. (Psychologists have known for a long time that every perpetrator is also a victim; what makes someone into a purveyor of aggression or violence is normally a deep wounding or trauma they experienced in the past.) Satanic ritual abuse is also carried out against children who are kidnapped, then molded into slaves through the trauma of the abuse.

As sad and horrific as this subject is, it is central to an understanding of the worldwide conspiracy and the New World Order. What binds these criminal manipulators together is not race, religion or family ties, but an adherence to Satanism, a willingness to invoke dark forces in ritual and to let those dark forces control their thoughts and actions – which results in all the pedophilia, war, manipulation and deception we see around us.
