Another fear I have besides a fear of self-importance and entitlement (1) is a fear of ridicule.

I fear that I’ll be deemed out of touch with reality because I tell a business associate that I work for the Divine Mother. (Ooops!) Or blurt out to another what Archangel Michael said. (Uhhhhh…..) (2)

I’ve always wanted to be on the frontiers of knowledge so being rebuked for having left the fold has always been an occupational hazard for me. (3)

Many of us older lightworkers chose to avoid being ridiculed and hurt by taking to the cave and becoming introverts. Or by living in foreign countries. Not a few of my friends are satisfied singles, not seeking relationship but preferring their missions instead. Continue reading A Second Lightworker Pitfall

Cedella Marley: No Excuses

e93f3c_4d73dd57690040e5a08ceb72e3082e5fmv23Positive Vibrations by Cedella Marley, A Nice Time

Everyday you have plenty of chances to make excuses for your mistakes or shortcomings. But in the end, making an excuse brings no value to your life. They hold you back from taking responsibility for your  actions and finding solutions that will resolve problems.

Do not worry about upsetting people if you do not have the answer. In fact, most people will admire you for saying you are wrong or did not yet put in the work. Rather focus on what steps you can take to avoid failure. With determination, you can do anything.

One love…Cedella

Opioid Deaths Plummeting in States with Legal Weed

By James Holbrooks, Anti-Media

(ANTIMEDIA) As Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to lament what he views as a blight on society, a new study is showing that states with medical marijuana programs are seeing drastic reductions in opioid-related hospitalizations and overdoses.

From a Reuters article published Tuesday:

“In states that legalized medical marijuana, U.S. hospitals failed to see a predicted influx of pot smokers, but in an unexpected twist, they treated far fewer opioid users, a new study shows.

We’re revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.

“Hospitalization rates for opioid painkiller dependence and abuse dropped on average 23 percent in states after marijuana was permitted for medical purposes, the analysis found. Hospitalization rates for opioid overdoses dropped 13 percent on average.”

The study, published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence, was authored by Yuyan Shi, a public health professor at the University of California in San Diego. According to Reuters, Shi’s study is the fifth in recent years to demonstrate declines in opioid dependence in states where medical weed is legal.

Intrigued by the data, Dr. Esther Choo, an emergency medicine professor at Oregon Health and Science University, spoke to Reuters via email.

“It is becoming increasingly clear that battling the opioid epidemic will require a multi-pronged approach and a good deal of creativity,” Choo, who was not involved in the study, said. “Could increased liberalization of marijuana be part of the solution? It seems plausible.”

One 2014 study showed opioid deaths dropped an average of 25 percent in states where medical marijuana is permitted, and data released just a month ago suggests that given the choice, many patients prefer weed over opioids as a painkiller.

The news of this latest study comes as a congressional committee announced it is opening an investigation into the pharmaceutical manufacturers of the nation’s five top-selling opioid products.

According to a statement released by the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee, the investigation — to be headed by Senator Claire McCaskill (D) — will explore whether pharmaceutical corporations “have contributed to opioid over-utilization and overprescription.”

The investigation will purportedly be a “wide-ranging” one and will also include the marketing side of the industry. A recent report from the Associated Press, for instance, found makers of opioid painkillers outspend the gun lobby on campaign contributions and lobbying by a ratio of eight to one.

“All of this didn’t happen overnight,” McCaskill said of the opioid epidemic sweeping the United States. “[I]t happened one prescription and marketing program at a time.”

However, neither the mounting evidence of the medicinal uses for marijuana — nor calls from those within Trump’s own government to look into the true causes of the opioid epidemic — have seemed to sway the president’s top cop. Just last week, Jeff Sessions doubled down on his stance that marijuana is nothing short of a danger to society.

“I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana,” he said, “so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another.”

Waking Up to the Sacred in Nature and Reclaiming Our Earth Soul

waking-up-to-the-sacred-in-nature-and-reclaiming-our-earth-soul-3By Christa Mackinnon, Wake Up World

“In the absence of the sacred, nothing is sacred. Everything is for sale.” ~ Oren R. Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Turtle clan

When writing my latest book, I was surprised how difficult I found it to write a ‘short chapter about nature and sacredness’ for a readership that would be mainly urban. Now that the indigenous movement against the completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline brought the issue to the fore, I was reminded how urgently we need to re-connect with the sacred aspect of nature, not only because we face an ecological crisis and need to stand up in vast numbers to the ever increasing destruction of natural habitat and resources driven, but also because the separation from the nature aspect of ourselves, from our earth roots and souls, is contributing extensively to the dis-connection from our own wild nature and to our mental, emotional and physical suffering and dis-enchantment.

Black Community Unites to Protect D.C. After Girls Go Missing: Media is Dismissive

By Cassius Kamarampi, The Mind Unleashed

A few days ago, info about 14 girls going missing in 24 hours in Washington, D.C. went viral. Though the number may not actually be 14, it struck a nerve because people are going missing.

It gave inspiration to people seeking to protect the community and exercise their right to self defense. Black Men United organized an effort to patrol D.C., and activists are doing everything they can to pay attention. Continue reading Black Community Unites to Protect D.C.

Study Finds More Than 24,000 Chemicals In Bottled Water: Which Ones Are Harming You?

via Collective Evolution

German researchers have discovered endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which could adversely affect development and reproduction, to be contained in 18 different bottled water products. Of the 24,520 suspect chemicals found to be present in bottled water, the one that showed consistent results and illustrated anti-androgenic and anti-estrogenic activity is di(2-ethylhexyl) fumarate (DEHF).

Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with the hormone system. They can cause cancerous tumours, birth defects, cardiovascular disorders, metabolic disorders, and as mentioned earlier,  other developmental disorders(1).This study comes from Martin Wagner and Jorg Oehlmann of the Goethe University Frankfurt, Frankfurt am Main, and Michael Schlusener and Thomas Ternes of the German Federal Institute of Hydrology. They determined that bottled water could contain serious amounts of EDCs that should be a cause for concern.

“It Should Be Illegal to Be a Stay at Home Mom” – Mainstream Media

By Cassius Kamarampi, Thanks to Natural Blaze

(Era of WisdomA well known Australian journalist recently had the audacity to say it should be illegal to be a stay at home mother. The headline reads: “Sarrah Le Marquand: It should be illegal to be a stay-at-home mum.”

Her article starts off emphasizing the authority of “data or analysis,” saying:

“It’s the topic of stay-at-home mums. More specifically, the release of any data or analysis that dares recommend Australian women should get out of the living room/kitchen/nursery and back into the workforce. Continue reading “It Should Be Illegal to Be a Stay at Home Mom” – Mainstream Media

Cedella Marley: Don’t Give Up

It’s very easy to get angry, frustrated and give up. But it is way easier to be positive and proactive in spite of a bad situation. Getting angry only makes the situation worse and sets a bad example for those around.

There is always a solution for improving a situation. Take a deep breath, focus on the positive then put in the effort and allow the positive vibrations to flow.

Doctors Gave Boy 3 Days to Live, Then His Mom Secretly Gave Him Cannabis

By Carey Wedler, Anti-Media

(ANTIMEDIA) Both anecdotal evidence and clinical research are beginning to show the promise of cannabis in treating a variety of health issues. According to one family in the U.K., cannabis helped a dying teenage boy recover fully from complications from leukemia. The family recently appeared on the British talk show, This Morning, to discuss their experience.

Callie Blackwell’s son Deryn had been fighting leukemia followed by Langerhans cell sarcoma for four years — since the age of ten. Following doctors’ fourth and final attempt at a bone marrow transplant, they warned the family it was the last opportunity to save his life.
