The Ultimate Way to Cure Anxiety: Why are We All Addicted to Something?

By Markab Algedi, The Mind Unleashed

Why are we all addicted to something? Why do human beings in our culture have this nagging, constant insatiability? What are we searching for, why do we feel like we are lacking, and why do we seem to be constantly trying to cure ourselves of restlessness, boredom, or anxiety?

I don’t know the answer to that question one hundred percent, but I have some theories currently, with the level I am at in understanding this issue myself. This question is the type that you ask yourself over the course of your entire life: the answer is ever-changing, growing as a person personally learns how to be happy in life without seeking so many external things.

The Creator Writings: Quiet Mind

via Jennifer Farley, Thanks to Galactic Free Press

Sometimes, there is absolutely nothing to say. Having a quiet mind can be a gift to those who understand the benefits.  For those that do not; it can be torturous.  Without the inner chatter, you will begin to hear The Universe and what it has to say to you more clearly.  Today, take some time, quiet the inner chatter and listen to the whispers.  Beauty awaits. ~ Creator

Cops Discover Former Ringling Bros Big Cats Locked Inside Hot Arkansas Barn

By Brianna Acuesta, True Activist

Their future will likely be even worse than their time in the barn.

The Ringling Bros. may have wrapped up their circus shows, but that doesn’t mean that their animals are now free or safe at a sanctuary. Though the circus shut down largely because of citizens’ objection to the treatment of the show’s animals, the company did not choose to send them to a place where they could retire in peace. Instead, they chose for the big cats to head to Zirkus Crone, a circus in Germany who has been accused of the exact same abuses that the Ringling Bros. have. What’s worse is that, even though the last show occurred in May of this year, most of the tigers hadn’t even made their way to Germany yet.

New Moon In Virgo: Getting Real And Embracing Change

By Carmen Di Luccio, Collective Evolution

There will be a New Moon in Virgo on September 20, 2017. This is the beginning of a new wave of energy influencing the upcoming month, yet the astrological configurations at this time will have a stronger influence over the following two weeks.

On September 18, less then a day before this New Moon, Mercury finished travelling in the part of the zodiac it occupied during its previous retrograde. These last few weeks (since Sept 5) are known as Mercury’s ‘post-shadow’ period, as there has been more of a forward momentum in response to what transpired during the retrograde and in the aftermath leading up to this New Moon on the 19th.

Big-hearted 4-year-old Asks for Food Bank Donations Instead of Presents

via Daily Record.co.uk, Thanks to Golden Age of Gaia

Laura, Owen’s mom: “I was very proud to see his little face when people were asking and praising him and he was explaining… the ‘sharing is caring’ concept.”

A big-hearted four-year-old ditched his own birthday gift list to collect food bank donations.

Instead of focusing on the usual fanfare of a party, Irvine’s Owen Walker decided to collect tins and boxes of food from friends and family to make a deposit at North Ayrshire Food Bank last month. Continue reading Big-hearted 4-year-old Asks for Food Bank Donations Instead of Presents

Upgrade to the Next Level of Now

By High Vibe Tribe, Waking Times

All things are new. The old systems and paradigms are crumbling before our eyes and minds. Outdated mechanisms of knowledge and understanding have shifted and are passing. For those who are open and ready, it’s an amazing time for letting go.

It can be conceived as timeline or dimensional shifts and bleed-throughs if you like. For those experiencing and tracking these changes you will understand, others may sense something fundamentally different but are having a more difficult time just yet, but all will continue to progress. For those wanting to move with this energetic shift it will come, and more understanding as well as awareness will seep in. It can be subtle, or sometimes one psychic or transdimensional experience can trigger a big leap forward. Continue reading Upgrade to the Next Level of Now

Government Considering Monarch Butterfly for Endangered Species List

Monarch Butterflies Rapidly Disappearing from Western North America – More Than the East

Something is causing monarch butterflies to disappear at a dramatically higher rate in Western North America than in the Eastern regions of the U.S.

In the early 1990s, people in the Coastal areas of California noticed a disconcerting decline of the monarch. It turns out they were correct. While scientists have focused on the problems of butterflies in the Eastern region, a new study uses citizen science monitoring over the decades to see a dramatic decline at Western clusters.

A Psychedelic Adventure Into The Illusion Of Time

BLuke Miller, Truth Theory

A loud and powerful high pitched singing bowl intensely rang throughout my ears, I had just been violently sick and the room was spinning in a dark blue intense swirl of colours. Then silence. It was beautiful- I mean the music was beautiful too, but after 3 hours of intensity I was okay with a little quite. Then the drumming started- it was shamanic drumming. A quick double beat which perked me up and switched the visions to a bright carrot orange medley of geometric patterns. The beat picked up and started with some heavy chants and throat singing- I’d had enough of sound and decided to turn the music off.

The Hidden World of Burning Man – The Greatest Party on Earth or an Epicenter of Consciousness?

By Nanice Ellis, Wake Up World

Burning Man: The greatest party on Earth or an epicenter of consciousness?

As an experiment in consciousness, 70,000 people from all walks of life gather in the harsh desert and build community from the ground up. For one week each year, Black Rock City becomes the home of Burning Man, and with its own airport, hospital, and post office, one of the largest cities in Nevada, USA.

Although each year is based on a unique theme, the week always culminates with burning an extremely large wooden man; symbolizing the transcendence of old paradigms that no longer serve individually or collectively. Unfortunately, this year the celebration ended with tragedy when a man jumped into the blazing fire seconds before the structure collapsed. After a magical week in the desert, this terrible turn of events left the citizens of Black Rock City shocked and confused, “Why would something like this happen?” Since there are no mistakes in the Universe, as a “five-time Burner” I’d like to share a deeper perspective….
