Oxytocin is a neurotransmitter that acts on the limbic system, the brain’s emotional centre, promoting feelings of contentment, reducing anxiety and stress. It has been dubbed the “love hormone” for its role promoting social bonding, altruism and more. Now new research from Duke University suggests the hormone may also support spirituality.

On Friday September 30th at 8:11pm EST planet Earth is blessed with a New Moon in the sign of Libra. This is bringing in some much anticipated harmony, balance and opportunities to relax. The New Moon is landing close to Jupiter in Libra and enhancing that energy.
2016 has been an intense year, filled with many shifts and changes. For the most part the Universe has been asking us to transform. To elevate perspectives and views of ourselves and our place in the world. You see, until recently many of us had been undermining ourselves; playing small and holding back.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin Continue reading New Moon in Libra; Harvest Time

You’re tense, tired, edgy, perhaps even angry, hurt or feeling abused. But before dealing directly with the source of whatever provoked your feelings, get yourself into a more balanced and resourceful state of mind.
Then you will be able to see your situation more objectively and work on a more permanent solution. Here are four easy ways to pivot:
Take a Break. No matter how difficult the situation may appear to be, a change of pace can help you open up new ways of looking at the problem. Stop what you’re doing and find something else to do. Focus your mind on anything but the cause of your stress. For example, if you’re working on a stressful task, find another task to work on. Continue reading Relief Is Just a Pivot Away

In our society, we often correlate legality with safety. We use household products, spray pesticides, and religiously consume drugs such as ritalin, adderall, oxycontin, and prozac.
We consume all of this, but how many know who made the drugs, and where the corporations came from? Who produces the chemicals we trust on a daily basis? Continue reading These 13 Corporations Are “Big Pharma”: Their History, Crimes, and Products

Shamanism was an integral part of humanity for thousands of years. They were the first healers, teachers, and scholars. Eventually, the wisdom of the shamans was lost through the trials and travails of humanity.
Now, in our modern age with technology that grants us access to knowledge from around the world, we have brought the old wisdom back, and in the most stunning of ways. Science has actually come to parallel the ancient practices of shamanism. Here is a list of 5 ways the sub-atomic level of reality parallels with the core methods of shamanic healing.

I often use my conversations with Archangel Michael to have him confirm – or deny – things for me. And this current reading – Sept. 23 – he confirmed something that has me reeling from considering the possibilities.
He confirmed for me that consciousness and love are one and the same. That also means that consciousness and light are the same since, according to Matthew Ward, love and light are the same.
“The light [is] the same energy as love and the most powerful force in the cosmos.” (1) Continue reading Integrating Consciousness, Light, and Love

The DEA considers hemp to be a dangerous substance and it’s still classified as a schedule I drug, alongside heroin and ecstasy, even though the plant contains almost no THC and has no psychoactive effects.
Many believe this classification is the result of the oil industry’s grip on the legislative process in America, because hemp is one of the most viable alternatives to plastics, fuel and other building materials, in fact, it used to be an important domestically produced crop, and it even contains extraordinary health benefits.
“Hemp is the only plant that can feed you, house you, clothe you and heal you.” [Source]

A rather shocking thing occurred this week when U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted that marijuana is not a gateway drug. Think about that for a moment: The nation’s top law enforcement official has dismissed the notion that people who use cannabis will inevitably go on to become hardcore drug addicts.
