Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us at a time when we really needed it. Because of you, we can make end’s meet and keep the blog running.
I look forward to continuing to share (what I hope to be) insightful writings on society and the evolution of mind, body, and soul. Your support ensures I can do so and still pay the bills; a feat that’s not always easy to achieve.
Look out for more writings from me on the Openhearted Rebel blog, as I’ve committed to a more rigorous writing and posting schedule. I intend to post an article of my own every day, if not nearly every day, from here on out. Again, your support helps me survive while I do this.
I can’t thank all of you enough, and I intend to pay it back with articles I hope you’ll enjoy and learn something from.
In love and gratitude,
Wes Annac & Family

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” ~George R.R. Martin
There it is: your mind –all leashed-up, bored, bookless and chasing its own tail in the corner. It’s time to unleash it. It’s time to toss it back into the shocking waters of wonder and awe. It’s time to distract it from the all too familiar tail (or tale, to wit), and give it a juicy carrot to chase around instead. Seven juicy carrots, to be exact.
So, store that leash, open up your mind, curl up with your best friend, and dive right on in to the following mind-unleashing books. But keep the light on. As Groucho Marx wittily opined, “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” Continue reading 7 Powerful Books That Will Unleash The Hidden Potential Of Your Mind

I’d like to make a few spiritual distinctions here to assist us in later discussions.
I’m offering a cross-cultural perspective on what may turn out to be the “sudden” steps in our otherwise gradual Ascension.

In the midst of a nationwide health emergency, opioid drugs like heroin and pharmaceutical synthetic opiates are killing tens of thousands of Americans each year. We are in a state of emergency over this, yet another type of pharmaceutical drugs is actually sending more people to the emergency room than prescription opioids.
A class of pharmaceuticals used as blood thinners and anticoagulants is often prescribed to patients who are at risk of developing blood clots. Included are the drugs Xarelto, Pradaxa, Eliquis, Warfarin, Coumadin, and Savaysa. In particular, Xarelto is widely known to cause sever adverse reactions and thousands of lawsuits have been filed from around the nation.

In a nine-day experiment, researchers from Touro University and UC San Francisco found that a diet with reduced sugar cut liver fat by more than 20 percent.
Cutting out the sort of sugar commonly found in soft drinks, fruit juices and processed foods reversed the buildup of liver fat in children and adolescents, a condition closely tied to diabetes and heart disease.
Fatty liver disease in youth has more than doubled in the past two decades, leading to increased insulin resistance. That, in turn, reduces a person’s ability to control blood sugar, which leads to Type 2 diabetes. The findings were published in the journal Gastroenterology. Continue reading This Diet Cuts Liver Fat By More Than 20 Percent In Only Nine Days

If I may make a suggestion, and, of course, I can, may I suggest that you inspire yourself? Now, that’s a good suggestion! Isn’t it a novel idea? I like it. When you are bored or disgruntled or anything at all, try taking it upon yourself to wake yourself up to something new. Undisgruntle yourself. Rise and shine. Take yourself in hand.
Perhaps you would like to do something you have never done before.
Of course, it isn’t exactly that you have to do something new. You can do something you have always done a lot. You don’t really have to challenge yourself. You are not really looking for a remarkable experience. A fine experience can be good enough. Continue reading Heavenletters: New Glories in Your Own Heart

There is so much to say about this widely used and accepted (and often encouraged) drug. I mean, the simple fact that it is indeed a drug is worth talking about. Few people consider alcohol a drug, and I can’t help but wonder why. Is it because it is legal in our society?
Perhaps it is because it is advertised everywhere we turn and glamorized so heavily in the media. But are we aware of just how damaging this drug can be? Not just for those who suffer from alcoholism, but for anyone consuming more than an occasional drink at a time? Continue reading This Psychiatrist’s Take On Alcohol May Make You Never Want To Drink Again

Thank you for the time away.
The experience of my higher-dimensional Self gradually faded. One interesting side effect was that, as I remained with it, more vasanas or core issues came up that I didn’t even know I had.
And it reminded me to repeat – because I have said it before – that a similar situation may face us after the Reval.
Many of what were suppressed feelings and thoughts will then no longer be inhibited. We may lose our cautiousness. We may feel like gods – unassailable and unstoppable.
Familiar and “new” vasanas – many of which we didn’t even know we had – will likely go off once the “stops” are removed. Continue reading The Importance of Processing Our Vasanas
