In February of this year, Khun Amy Bushell witnessed a disturbing sight. While visiting Lanta Island, she came across a malnourished elephant tied to a tree in blistering heat.

Let the Personal rEVOLUTION Begin!
Practically everyone’s saying it: what’s needed on our planet right now is a revolution in consciousness. We need to transform ourselves and reclaim personal sovereignty by making constant conscious choices. In so doing, we transform our lives and uplift the world around us.

“We need shamans, and if society doesn’t provide them, the universe will.” ~Joe Lewels
In the article The Archetypal Path to Getting Your Shit Together, I wrote about the power of archetypes. A Disaster Shaman is an example of using an archetype to make the world a better place; to become the change we want to see in the world.
The Disaster Shaman recipe combines aspects of The Shadow with aspects of The Hero and then mixes in a little Trickster tomfoolery. The combination of these archetypes creates a particular flavor of nontraditional shamanism that spearheads healthy Cosmic Law through the heart of unhealthy lawfulness.

Sometimes it is less what we do, and more what we don’t do that has the biggest impact on our lives.
Happiness; something that everyone wants to find in some form, yet elusive enough that many never really find the deep level of satisfaction that they crave. Often we go for everything that surrounds the potential happiness, instead of just going direct to the source. This often leads to immense suffering.
There are many “things” in the world, yet none of those “things” will actually bring us anywhere closer to our desires. It is feelings that we need, and feelings are created by experiences and mindset. Continue reading 7 Habits That Are Making You Unhappy
In my practice, I see how important planning is. No goal, no plan, no action, no result. When we have a focus, an honest intent, passion and direction, nothing can stop us.
I also see a difference between planning and being too rigid; by that I mean, a plan that comes from the desire to create and follow through needs to be firm. BUT, it also needs to leave you the space that YOU need to feel empowered by it, not imprisoned. Continue reading 7 Practices That Lead to Empowered Health

It’s no secret that our food today is under siege by corporate profit. Mass food production almost always undercuts the health of the consumer if it means increasing margins. Because of this our grocery store aisles have become a holding ground for chemical poisons guised under ambiguous names such as “natural flavors” and “fructose.”
It is up to the consumer, then, to know which ingredients to avoid that are especially toxic to our health. Below is a list of ten common food ingredients that are secretly poisoning the masses. Continue reading 10 Common Food Ingredients That Are Poisoning The World
Marijuana legalization is long overdue.
It’s time to stop prosecuting innocent people for the possession of a plant that was clearly put here to help us; it’s basically the same as prosecuting someone for possessing tomatoes. Full of medicinal benefits and spiritual potential, cannabis is a crop that’s meant to be utilized and shared, and we have to stand up for it – and our freedom – if we want the law to change.
Legalization and decriminalization are happening at a decent pace, but we can’t wait around for the government to do it when they’re finally ready, or to do it on their corporate-serving terms. Until politicians know they can profit from it without exposing their hypocrisy in keeping it illegal, they’ll stall its legalization and tell us it’s because of their religious beliefs, the funding of terrorist organizations, or our children’s safety — all while imprisoning the innocent and making loads of money for the private prison industry.
