If the past month has felt foggy, wacky and turned you upside down do not fear; relief is not far away. This is because the planet Mercury will be shifting direct the same day the Sun begins is annual journey through the sign of Libra.
For the past month Earth has been treading through the wounds. Mucking our way through collective and personal wounds is not a walk in the park but it’s such a pivotal part of the human experience.
We must recognize what’s broken in order to fix it. We must acknowledge the wounds in order to heal them. Continue reading Mercury Moves Direct: Thinking Supportive Thoughts

To understand oneself profoundly, one needs balance. That is, one cannot abandon the world, hoping to understand oneself, or be so tangled in the world that there is no occasion to comprehend oneself. There must be balance, neither renunciation nor acquiescence.

For a lucky few, there will come a moment in their lives when they suddenly GET IT and the voice inside their head cries out “ENOUGH!” They finally realize they’ve been holding back, that the barriers to achieving their dreams have been within them all along and they feel compelled to do something, anything, to break free.
Occasionally this single act of defiance can lead to a turning point that changes a life forever. The bored financial advisor who accepts a volunteer opportunity that leads to an exciting new career running a major non-profit; the insurance salesman struggling to find meaning in his life decides to finally write that book that’s been rattling around in the back of his mind for years and ends up becoming a bestselling author (Hint: Who wrote Hunt for Red October?), or the cash-strapped divorcee who decides to take a break from her worries by accepting an invitation to go on a fishing trip with a supportive friend, discovers that she loves the ocean and ends up running a highly successful online business selling women-friendly wetsuits. Continue reading Breaking Barriers: The Moment of Truth

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons. Either way, they create unnecessary complexity, strife, and, worst of all, stress.
Studies have long shown that stress can have a lasting, negative impact on the brain. Exposure to even a few days of stress compromises the effectiveness of neurons in the hippocampus—an important brain area responsible for reasoning and memory. Continue reading 12 Ways Successful People Deal With Toxic People

Technology is the driving force in business, industry and the surveillance-control spectrum of what’s becoming an apparent totalitarian-type of society couched in – and implemented – under the guise of ‘smart technology’.
Besides microwave energy tech devices that now are capable of opening or closing our front doors while we are away at work or, perhaps, some other apparent ‘fabulous’ fete which, by the way, can be hacked into by some two-bit, half-sophisticated hacker, we now have the push for the “self-driving car.” Continue reading Self-Driving Cars: Another Control Mechanism for Our Lives?

We all know that the brain is the command center of our body’s systems. It is the center of our nervous system and it is in charge of a number of functions — learning, remembering, and even controlling motor skills.
Over time, scientists and researchers have taken an interest in exploring the capacity and potentials of the brain. Along with scientific studies, a number of myths and theories have also been developed. And because some of these myths are very popular, there are lots of people who believe in these theories. Continue reading 5 Reasons Why We Are More Than 1/10 of Our Brains

Continuing with our Ascension ethnography, having spent perhaps the last five years online processing vasanas, I thought I was finished with them more than once, only to have them re-emerge.
But they’ve lessened overall and my cumulative level of experience, emotional floor, or sense of things has risen dramatically.
Nonetheless, just when I thought I’d get a rest, a whole ghost army marched into view.
That army is my conditioned behavior – all the I-Robot instructions I’ve given myself over the years that are the precipitate, the ultimate conclusions and decisions of my late vasanas. These instructions run in perpetuity, in the unexamined mind. Continue reading Transcending Mechanicalness

Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers have accelerated recently, with Syngenta being bought by ChemChina (China National Chemical Corporation), Dow Chemical merging with DuPont, and Monsanto agreeing to be acquired by Bayer on Sept. 14th 2016 for US$66 billion.
Bayer and Monsanto have signed off on the deal. Syngenta had previously rejected a $47 billion takeover bid by Monsanto last year in 2015. Now US and EU regulators will examine the Bayer-Monsanto deal. Continue reading Big Pharma – Big Agra Mergers: Furthering the Synthetic Agenda

Medical marijuana is legal in about half of the United States, and the DEA missed its chance to legalize it on the national level when it passed on rescheduling marijuana this past summer. But in Canada, doctors have been given the green light to prescribe heroin to severely addicted patients.
Are we living in a parallel universe or something?
New rules that went into effect last week allow doctors in Canada to apply to Health Canada – the nation’s health department – for access to medical-grade heroin to prescribe to specific patients. The government-run Special Access Program approves the requests on a case-by-case basis.  Continue reading Doctors in Canada Get the Green Light to Prescribe Heroin
