Good Medicine: Do As Much Nothing As Possible

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

”The delivery of good medical care is to do as much nothing as possible” ~ Samuel Shem, The House of God

Medicine is undergoing an existential crisis today. Its core value proposition – to help and not hurt – is failing to manifest. Patients are suffering. Doctors are suffering. The only exuberant party on the battlefield against disease is the pharmaceutical industry, an industry whose annual casualties far exceed the death total from our two decade long involvement in the Vietnam war.

The entire system is on the precipice of a collapse, if not for economic reasons alone, then certainly for ethical and intellectual ones. The irony is that the system has become so ineffective and dangerous that avoiding medical treatment (excluding perhaps emergency care) has become one of if not the best healthcare strategy you can implement to protect your health and well-being.

A Simple Tool to Relieve Yourself From Tension

31st October 2015

By Lynn Newman

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

When we’ve got a hundred things on our plate, it’s super hard sometimes to know how and when to take a break. And even when on vacation or in the times we have to relax, it can be difficult to let go and free ourselves from tension. Our minds may continue without us, coming up with the next thing to put on our lists — jutting out to the future to keep up with all the many things we want or have to do.

But there’s a quick and simple tool you can use to instantly relieve yourself from tension… it’s this thing called stopping.

Considering the Flu Shot? Here Are Five Reasons to Think Twice

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“Emelie Olsson is plagued by hallucinations and nightmares. When she wakes up, she’s often paralyzed, unable to breathe properly or call for help. During the day she can barely stay awake, and often misses school or having fun with friends. She is only 14, but at times she has wondered if her life is worth living.

“Emelie is one of around 800 children in Sweden and elsewhere in Europe who developed narcolepsy, an incurable sleep disorder, after being immunized with the made by British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline in 2009.” ~ Reuters

An uptick in narcolepsy after the flu shot is not unusual — Finland, Norway, Ireland and France have seen dramatic increases since the Pandemrix H1N1 swine flu vaccine was introduced. In total, more than 30 million people in 47 countries were given the GSK shot during the 2009-2010 flu season. Independent researchers subsequently published peer-reviewed studies from Finland, Ireland and Sweden, showing the 2009-2010 influenza vaccination campaign increased the rate of narcolepsy by seven to thirteen times in children given the GSK shot, compared to their unvaccinated peers. Unfortunately, narcolepsy isn’t the only risk associated with the vaccine.

Recognizing Real vs. Artificial Synchronicities

By Montalk

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Real synchronicities and artificial synchronicities both have meaning to the perceiver. Both manifest via highly improbable “coincidences.”

Real synchronicities come from your subconscious/HigherSelf/Universe and let you know that a quantum shift in perception is imminent – this can be an emotionally charged situation or a smoother leap in learning.

Artificial synchronicity is engineered by hyperdimensional negative beings in an attempt to suppress, sabotage, drain, distract, or mislead targets on the verge of awakening. This can happen in a variety of ways.

Tenderly Honoring and Loving The Brave, Awakening, and Aching Parts Of Me

29th October 2015

By Lia Love

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Looking back over my early childhood and first half of my life, I feel the pain and the sadness of those parts of me that were unable to function, unable to be happy, unable to do and create in life. The ones who were in pain, who felt lonely, who felt abandoned, who did not know how to love, how to receive love and ultimately how to love themselves. The ones who held this space for me so I could breathe and live.

At the time of their time, they could not afford to grieve, to be weak, to allow love. Love was a dangerous thing. They could only clinch tightly and march forward with their stinging consignments.

Fight, Flight… or Fun? Turning Anxiety into Anticipation

29th October 2015

By Dawn Walton

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Did you realise the physical experience of being scared is exactly the same as the physical experience of being excited? The difference is all in the head.

It’s all based on the fight or flight response (this should include the word freeze, as that is also an option). The need for this response comes from the caveman days where in order to survive attack we needed to be able to respond instantly, without giving it any thought. Think about it: you are being attacked by a sabre toothed tiger – if you take the time to work out if your brought your best spear, or if you can outrun it on this terrain, then you’re dead. The fight or flight response is a primitive instant and emotional response to keep you alive.

So, whilst we have physically evolved and adapted for a modern environment, the brain is still working on a set of rules that come from the caveman days.

Heart of Hearts – Following Our Deepest Callings

28th October 2015

By Jack Adam Weber

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

To live a fulfilling and meaningful life, without which life is meaningless, we have to inhabit more and more our heart of hearts — our deep hearts, the center of our inner knowingness. We can tap into this knowingness if we are sensitive and can deeply feel ourselves. It is informed by our minds, yet often has a different message for us than what we think we know.

This knowingness in our heart of hearts can share with us right from wrong. This means that we are organically and inescapably accountable for what presents to us in our heart of hearts — a morality of the heart if you will.

What It Means To Control The Mind

28th October 2015

By Frank M. Wanderer, Ph.D

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The human mind is a wonderful masterpiece that has immense potential. Most of the potential, however, remains unused with most people, since it is not us who is in charge of things — it is our mind that is in control. Our Mind is rushing through life with us like a car running without a driver, causing us constant suffering and sorrow.

But if we were able to control our Mind, our life would change completely. This mad speeding would change into a beautiful, creative dance, giving us happiness, instead of pain.

The question is, therefore, how are we able to take control over our Mind?

Full Moon in Taurus – Calling the Leaders of the New Paradigm

27th October 2015

By Simon Vorster and Jennifer Langstone

Contributing Writers for Wake Up World

From Surviving to Thriving…

The new paradigm isn’t coming, it’s already here. The collective shift has now reached a crucial tipping point and, for many souls on the planet, a new way of learning, manifesting and expressing is becoming the new way of life.

Although our awakening process has brought us to new shores of heightened personal illumination, as we stand on this new ground, our eyes wide open, we are looking back at where we have come from, faced toward many others who have still yet to make the shift in their own lives. And with today’s Full Moon in Taurus (a supermoon) the gap between the shores of the old and new – between surviving and thriving – has never been so stark.

As leaders of a new society, we are now challenged with the task of building structures of healing and inclusiveness that reflect our new empowering insights and ways of being, anchoring the new paradigm with inspiration and inclusiveness in the knowing that the only way is forward — and that others will join us as the awakened consciousness continue to manifest in those still standing on the other shore.

Do We Really Create Our Own Reality?

27th October 2015

By Lissa Rankin, MD

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

There’s a school of thought in spiritual circles that ascribes to the idea that everything that happens in our lives — the blissful things, the growth edge things, the horrid things — all happens with purpose. This spiritual teaching suggests that everything reflected in our lives is the result of our conscious or unconscious desires, and that when things aren’t going our way, it’s because the blueprint of the subconscious actually desires the very thing we think we don’t want. In other words, we may believe that we want to meet the love of our life, or we may hope to have the cancer cured, but if someone were to muscle test us or read the subconscious mind intuitively, we would discover that at the level of the subconscious, we’re actually terrified of falling in love because of a past heartbreak, or the cancer is meeting some core need for rest, connection, or freedom from a toxic job, for example.
