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

1st May 2016

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

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

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

“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

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.

Waking Up From Awakening

28th April 2016

By Sarah Elkhaldy

Guest writer for Wake Up World

For those of us who are currently experiencing the awakening of consciousness taking place on this planet right now, there are many rabbit holes we can fall down that lead us to believe we are fully conscious and awake when we are really waking up out of one layer of the world dream at a time. No two paths are the same even though there are world issues that affect us as a collective.

Any plateau we become attached to on our awakening journey can create a sort of dogma within us that acts as a repellent to higher states of consciousness, because we may already believe we are at the pinnacle of being “awake.” So, one of the most challenging trials in the awakening process is being able to cultivate a quality of fluidness so as to not become static in our ever-expanding worldview.

Life With No Government

27th April 2016

By Ken Bartle

Guest writer for Wake Up World

Today’s mindset cannot see past the security, comforts, and benefits of government, despite its citizens being bound into a life of slavery. Man strives for freedom, but has not yet discovered a political system without political rule.

A representative body acting as public guardian of natural law, can answer people’s protection, security and natural justice, without political rule, provided that it cannot ever be usurped and transformed into government. Kritarchy and Natural Law offer the method.

No government? Oh yes!

Why GMOs Are NOT the Future of Food

27th April 2016

By Raluca Schachter

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Throughout our existence as humans, our genes have shown they are highly adaptable to the available food supply and a wide variety of diets. Over time, our genes gradually adapted to new ways of eating and we continued to thrive. But all these “new” foods were whole foods, unprocessed, unaltered, and found in nature.

So, how does this adaptation relate to the new era of genetically modified foods, made in the laboratory?
