By Trinity Bourne

Macadamia nut & cocoa are a marriage made in chocolate heaven. Add in fruit (in this case – raisins), coconut sugar (a much healthier alternative to refined sugar) and vanilla and you’ll quickly find a divine medley of exciting textures, flavours and melt in the mouth deliciousness.

Macadamias are my favourite nut ever. They vary in quality and taste although I recently stocked up on some super tasty ones during my latest trip to Hawaii… and couldn’t resist making a batch or two of this delectable recipe. ‘Fruit n’ Mac Nut Chocolate Bark’ makes a perfect gift for a friend or loved one. Ideal for a special occasion or a ‘just because I love you’ moment. It’s also a great way to treat yourself to a little healthy indulgence too… because as far as chocolate goes you aren’t going to a find a much healthier recipe than this one.

Becoming Intimate with Our Pain: an Invitation to Greater Wholeness

By Nira Lall

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Illuminating our life’s purpose and living the reality of who we really are is a beautiful, freeing concept. Many of us devour personal development books, articles and podcasts to help us stay grounded in the knowing that we are powerful creators. In reality, getting and staying on this path can be overwhelming, dark, and at times miserable. It’s important to acknowledge and embrace the darker aspects of our experience, including our pain, as a vehicle for learning and deeper understanding.

This “pain” can show up as sorrow, despair, feeling stuck, need for control, anger, perfectionism, the voice of our inner critic, physical ailments, our wounded child self, and so one. There are countless faces of pain in our lives and it’s important to get intimate with all of them.As a culture and within the pop psychology movement we often deem our pain as bad, which is just another act of chipping away at our personal self-worth. Making any part of oneself “bad” can be felt as an act of deep betrayal by the psyche.

Why The New World Order Will Fail!

By Robert Torres

Guest writer for Wake Up World

When someone mentions “The New World Order”, it conjures up thoughts of conspiracy involving the Illuminati, the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, old privileged family wealth and royal lineage. Beneath that you may think of the already bought and paid for world leaders and the secret agenda. And you might be right.

When I think of the New World Order, I’m thinking of an idea. It’s an idea that’s as old as war itself. How many times must we keep hearing this same ideology? Every single empire from the beginning of man had this same dream. You know the one, the dream of controlling everything beneath the sky from horizon to horizon. Nothing has changed in thousands of years… except the horizons and the dreamers.

The Challenges of Breaking into Spiritual Realignment

Learning to follow our “Spiritual Compass”

Right now, I’m hearing from lots of people within our virtual community who have awoken and are beginning to step onto the spiritual path in earnest, they’re being drawn to Gateway 2 – the “Realignment” – as we’ve termed it. It can be a very challenging yet profoundly rewarding experience. In essence we’re making a quite profound shift of consciousness inside. Prior to this shift, like most people in the world today (even many awake ones), we create our lives really by making decisions about “how to move the external pieces on life’s playing board”. But afterwards things change dramatically…

Changing from “What to Do?” to “How to Be?”

Top 5 Foods for the Pineal Gland

By Dr. Edward F. Group

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

If you’re seeking enlightenment through meditation, or perhaps you’re just looking to obtain a good night’s rest, you need a healthy pineal gland. Often referred to as the third eye, this small, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ located in the brain secretes and regulates melatonin, the hormone that regulates your circadian rhythms (your sleep-wake cycle) and certain sex hormones.

Top 5 Foods for the Pineal Gland

Calcification is an issue that occurs to everyone, but it’s increased in individuals that eat a poor diet. The problem is that overexposure to fluoride and phosphorus destabilizes your body’s mineral balance. This causes your pineal gland to calcify quickly. Nearly half of Americans experience pineal calcification by the age of 18! This disrupts your natural rhythms and hormones.

The best answer is to eliminate junk foods and limit your fluoride exposure. You need to get enough raw, healthy foods to help decalcify and support the pineal gland. Try these 5 foods for the best pineal gland health.

The Conspiracy of Language

9th February 2015

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Here’s a good exercise that will help alter your conscious awareness and put punch and clarity where slosh once existed: Don’t use the words “hope” or “believe”. Every time you’re tempted to say, write or even think these debilitating concepts, replace “I hope” or “I believe” with “I think” or “it appears to me” or something else realistic that clearly indicates what you really mean. We don’t need full evidence to make conjectures or intuitive surmisings. Just call them what they are.

Hope is one of the most misleading and disempowering terms we’ve ever been handed, as is belief. These types of inhibitors are a subtle trick of the programmed language we’ve been handed. Drop them entirely. We tend to know what people seem to mean when using these terms, but they’re still intellectually and spiritually crippling.

Are You Part of the New Trickle-Up Economy Yet?

By Christine Horner

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Times are proving to be extremely challenging for those still mired in third dimensional economics, debating whether or not capitalism is working. But for the rest of us, new opportunities abound as a new economy quietly bubbles to the surface, preparing to go vertical. Meanwhile, Old Earth economic forces, and old beliefs that others will come to our rescue fade away like the mirage that they were.

Just like we’ve always been the ones we’ve been waiting for, so too, are we the ones who will self-fund the new economy with our own capital, volunteerism, and gifting. This is incredibly good news as we step into our power as sovereign beings acting under our own authority in service of all humanity.

So that this good news doesn’t seem like more pie in the sky, let’s take a look back, and then move forward, to see a glimpse of what our future contains. How you write your future is up to you, but as you will see, the power of a new economy has been quietly at work behind the scenes for a while in surprising way, waiting for the appropriate time to come into the spotlight.

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.
