Shedding the Ego: Moving Towards the Soul

9th February 2015

By Carolina Israel Mosqueira

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Many people are striving to be happy. All over the world many of us feel compelled to grow and find a personal and collective state of joy and peace. When we face this enormous so-called challenge of becoming happier, we realize that there is no other form of growth than self-development, and that this journey is all about self-discovery.

It is common to seek answers to the questions “why” is this or that happening to me? But certainly, this leads to a great frustration as we realize there is no real or satisfying answer. We then move to a much more relevant question: “how do I become that person I want to be”, and without hesitation this dilemma encounters the greatest question of all: “Who am I?”.

Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation: a Guide to Meditation and Breath

By Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

We have analytical minds with mediated wants which promote us to live highly complex lives. And yet, underneath it all we all crave simplicity, but are led to believe it can’t be obtained without further complexity. In fact, it is simple to be simple – and it’s completely up to you.

For many, simply being present in the moment can itself be difficult. Statistically the thing most people do to relax is watch television, which takes the emotions and thoughts away to distant dramas and sitcoms; far away from the here and right now. As a culture we are used to becoming distant and distracted as a form of “relaxation” – and watching television is only one of many things a busy mind will do so as not to have to face itself.

The Human Genome – Perception Directly Controls Gene Activity

By Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

When scientific discovery undermines a “core belief” that is part of the fabric of the entire society, the course of human history is radically altered. Consider how the course of human history changed when the belief that the world was flat was challenged by the circumnavigation of the globe?

In 1893, the chairman of physics at Harvard University warned students that there was no more need for additional PhD’s in the field of physics. He boasted that science had established the fact that the universe was a matter machine, comprised of physical, indivisible atoms that fully obeyed the laws of Newtonian Mechanics. Since all the descriptive laws of physics were “known”, the future of physics would be relegated to making finer and finer measurements.

Two years later, the Newtonian concept of a matter-only universe was toppled by the discovery of subatomic particles, X-rays and radioactivity.

The Importance of Eating Seeds for a Healthy Diet – Tips, Benefits & Recipes

By Trinity Bourne

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Seeds are an essential addition to any healthy diet – they aren’t usually as revered as nuts, although they certainly deserve to be. Filled with a beneficial compliment of essential fats, protein, a vast array of different nutrients and phytonutrients, they play an important role in supporting health. Seeds are the embodiment of universal life force; each seed, a little power house of massive potential, designed to grow into an impressive, abundant plant. They are simply bursting with goodness.

Seeds are an excellent alternative to nuts; often less rich (which I personally prefer) and easier to digest. You can find raw shelled seeds or seed-butters in any decent health store.

When Worlds Collide: Understanding the Challenges of Life on Planet Earth

By Evita Ochel

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Right now as you read this, you know yourself to be living on a planet called Earth in a physical incarnation that you share with about 7 billion other people and over 8 billion other living species. In this solar system that we are in, we think of ourselves as being one race of human beings, sharing one planet and one reality. But do we really?

When we examine this fact on a deeper level of awareness, we begin to realize that there are many more worlds within this one world that we envision ourselves to be living in. What is more so, is that there are numerous realities as well. And I am not even talking here about the heavy duty ideas of quantum physics, parallel Universes or multiple dimensions. I am simply talking about the fact that each one of us, being a physical individuation of source energy, is its own world and reality. This means that we have about 7 billion worlds sharing one planet.

A Case For Complementary and Alternative Medicine

By Rajgopal Nidamboor

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The idea of incorporating and teaching complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the conventional medical school curriculum has been a raging debate for too long. The argument is not so much as to whether or not conventional medical institutions are receptive enough to integrate evidence-based CAM knowledge in their own academic or clinical setting, or whether CAM should be a part at all. What is imperative is a balanced view, because the community at large expects medical professionals to be able to provide information and guidance about the quality and therapeutic use not just of conventional medicine but also complementary, integrative or functional medicine, which most patients use some time or other.

A Guide to Heavy Metals and Their Health Effects

By Marie Be

Guest Writer For Wake Up World

Everyday, the body is exposed to toxins and heavy metals, absorbing small amounts of contaminants. Not much, but enough that they can accumulate in the body. With ongoing exposure, the body can become overwhelmed, natural detoxification pathways become clogged, and chronic toxicity can be the result.

Heavy metal toxicity has a slow degenerative effect on the body. For example, some heavy metals inhibit the cellular function, which is to protect the organism from oxidative damage, reducing the effectiveness of this antioxidant defense system for detoxification. (1) Other heavy metals act as molecular “mimics” of nutritionally essential trace elements; depleting the body from cofactors essential to cellular regeneration.

Diagnosing metal toxicities can be difficult and is often overlooked by health practitioners. Aside from acute toxicity where the symptoms are apparent, the symptoms and health effects of low to chronic toxicity may often resemble other diseases.

1. Express gratitude

Every new day leads to a new way to say “thank you” for being alive. Everything we experience and are capable of experiencing on this blue marble in this universal arena is something to be grateful for. Contemplate the fact that something rather than nothing exists and that within that something we exist and experience such an amazing reality. There is always something to be grateful for, we simply need to look around us and within us. Through continued gratitude we cannot help but feel an explosive volcanic eruption of bliss to be so fortunate as to have what we have.

Understanding the Root Cause of Depression So We Can Deal With It

By Open

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Can you believe it, 70% of Americans are on some kind of prescription drug and more than half receive at least two prescriptions. High on the list of drugs prescribed are antidepressants. I find that shocking. Not least, it speaks about the dysfunctional nature of society in terminal decline. The system is not working! I imagine practically everyone suffers from some kind of unhappiness or depression from time to time. Why does that happen? How might we deal with it in an effective, spiritual way, without prescribing medication?…

The not-so-merry-go-round of society

I believe there are many reasons why people suffer bouts of depression, and to me, I sense it’s mainly – if not always – due to a dysfunctional relationship with the divine. I observe in the work I do with people, if we can get that inner relationship aligned and ticking well, then depression and other disfunctional experiences dissolve away.

I put it to you, that the root cause of all Depression,
is a dysfunctional relationship with the divine.

Sunshine Vitamin Regenerates and Detoxifies Your Hormones

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Sometimes called the ‘sunshine vitamin’ because it is found in high levels in citrus fruits, vitamin C has a uniquely regenerative role in hormone health and cancer prevention that has been overlooked for over twenty years!

Truly groundbreaking research on the regenerative potential of vitamin C therapy for hormone health as well as cancer prevention was performed over twenty years ago, and yet still today it has received little to no attention.

Published in 1993 in the journal Radiation Physics and Chemistry and titled, “Photo-induced regeneration of hormones by electron transfer processes: Potential biological and medical consequences,” Austrian researchers explored the role that vitamin C plays in preventing the degradation of steroid hormones into toxic and cancer-promoting metabolites known as “hormone transients.” Their stated goal was “to investigate if hormone transients resulting by e.g. electron emission can be regenerated.”
