Kratom Helped Me Turn My Life Around, Now The DEA Has Banned It

By Morgan Joylighter, Natural Blaze

My fundamental issue has always been that I was raised by physically and emotionally abusive parents in near-cult-like isolation.

That compromised my social skills, ability to feel relaxed or safe in normal human circumstances, and baseline neurochemistry in regards to contentment, happiness, and pleasure .

I have spent most of my life bouncing around between one addiction or compulsive destructive behavior and another, trying to find ways to temporarily fill the void I felt by being unable to see myself as a good person, feel loved, enjoy normal social activities without anxiety and self-loathing, or even keep my neurochemistry at a high enough level to avoid feeling suicidally depressed for much more than half of the time.

Subtle Activism: An Idea Whose Time has Come

By David T. Nicol, PhD, The Master Shift

Subtle activism involves the use of consciousness-based practices for collective transformation, such as a global meditation to support a peaceful outcome to an international conflict. It is an aspect of an emerging turn in the consciousness movement beyond personal development toward concern for the world as a whole.

As Sufi mystic Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee has pointed out, authentic spiritual practice has always been for the sake of the whole. From ancient shamanic traditions to monastic and mystical orders within the major world religions, practitioners have long dedicated their spiritual work for the wellbeing of all life.

It’s called quantum entanglement, it’s extremely fascinating and  counter to what we believe to be the known scientific laws of the universe, so much so that Einstein himself could not wrap his head around it.

Recent research has taken quantum entanglement out of the theoretical realm of physics, and placed into the one of verified phenomena.  Continue reading Lockheed Executive Blows Lid Off Of Secret Government Space Travel (Quantum Entanglement)

The simmering showdown here between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the company building the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline began as a legal battle.

It has turned into a movement.

Over the past few weeks, thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country have traveled to this central North Dakota reservation to camp in a nearby meadow and show solidarity with a tribe they think is once again receiving a raw deal at the hands of commercial interests and the U.S. government.

Frank White Bull, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council, was overcome with emotion as he looked out over the ocean of brightly colored tepees and tents that have popped up on this impromptu 80-acre campground.

By Julie Fidler, Natural Society

Gatorade has a new organic line of its energy drinks, and if you have no idea what it means, let me explain: the array of sugar-laden sports drinks are still loaded with sugar, but that sugar is organic now. It’s not made with organic fruit or anything like that, sorry. [1]

Beth Bloom, senior food and drink analyst at the market research firm Mintel, said of Gatorade, which accounts for 77% of sports drink sales in the U.S.: Continue reading New Organic Gatorade is Still Loaded with Sugar – Organic Sugar
