Psychedelics & Timeless Music – The Spark For A Revolution

The 1960’s are well-known as an era, sometimes a failed era, of a psychedelic renaissance which was nicely accompanied by protests, a sense of revolution, and an anti-war/government agenda. Psychedelics, with their mind-bending, eerie clarity made people think about things in a different light, specifically their own culture which was and is continually being fueled by war. They broke down barriers and made people question things left unquestioned. Like, why are we going to war? Why am I being forced to go kill people who are apart of my own species, my family? Music, being a psychedelic in its own form, was a central part in this outbreak of societal change. Music rippled throughout the land, showing things left unseen, even without the use of any psychotropic substance. Music can rip through to the core of individuals and help spark societal change. One song that helped spark that change and continues to today is “For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield.

“There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear. There’s a man with a gun over there, telling me I got to beware…” Springfield shows the relationship between the police and the citizens for whom they are supposed to serve and protect. Police are there to keep us in line, and as Springfield shows us, violently. Sure, they are here to protect us from those pesky vigilantes and even ourselves from when we cross over to the wrong side of the law, but laws in place today are not inherently moral, nor did I or you have much say in making most of them.

It is completely legal to march a few thousand men and women to another side of the globe, kill thousands of people, and all for the sake of power. However, if you are outside the few States that has legalized it, it is completely illegal to smoke a plant. Or, if you live anywhere on this Earth besides Spain, it is illegal to consume the eye-opening, soul shifting, psilocybin mushroom. But if you want to drink or smoke tobacco until you die, go right ahead. No one is stopping you. In fact, they encourage you to.

Growing up in a world where there is war, famine, children being bombed by drones, people starving to death while others have enough to buy a private jet, and homeless people filling our streets, the youth are usually the first to speak out about such atrocities. Those of us that have been here longer than most have either given up or are used to it, and those younger than, say sixteen, are most likely unaware of the problems at hand. Springfield illustrates this beautifully with: “Young people speaking their minds. Getting so much resistance from behind.” The youth speaking out has been a fairly common theme throughout history, but there are definite leaps here and there. The 1960’s was one of them. And, mainly due to the internet and the rising psychedelic culture today,  it is happening again.

Scientific Proof of Reincarnation Consciousness is Eternal

reincarnationby LJ Vanier

Reincarnation, in one form or another, is a cornerstone of several religions around the world. However, scientific-minded people have denied it completely. To them, the notion of a second life is too ludicrous.

However, several peer-reviewed studies published in fringe science journals, like The Journal of Scientific Exploration, have talked about the plausibility of the soul passing from a deceased body to a living one – reincarnation in simpler terms. From inexplicable memories to recurrent birthmarks, here is some scientific evidence put forward in these studies to give plausibility to the concept of the cycle of life.

Repeating Birth Marks

People in several Buddhist-dominated countries in Asia, like Cambodia and Myanmar, have a firm belief in reincarnation. Partly, because their religion explicitly states so. So, family members often mark their dead with a soot mark on a certain area so that their reincarnated form is born within the same family.

Many such instances were recorded in Myanmar by two researchers, Jim Tucker and Jurgen Keil. Both renowned professors. In one case, a boy, Z, was born with a birthmark on the same place where his grandfather’s body was marked. It is pertinent to note that there was a gap of 11 months between the birth of Z and the death of his grandfather. Furthermore, at around two years of age, Z started to call his grandmother by her full name. An instance that didn’t go unnoticed because no other child in the family used to do it. It further made the relatives think that Z indeed was a reincarnation of his grandfather.

Regression Episodes

Brian Weiss, a prominent psychiatrist associated with Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Miami was once treating a nurse who worked at the same hospital. During one of their sessions, the nurse reproduced a past-life event in excruciating detail. Weiss, a classically trained psychiatrist, was dumbfounded when the nurse assumed the role of a Native American woman hiding from a hunting party. She talked about how her baby, who had a crescent-shaped birthmark beneath his right shoulder, was having a hard time keeping quiet. When the baby spontaneously cried out, the mother unintentionally smothered the child in an effort to keep the hunting part from discovering them.

How Cecil’s Death Opened My Eyes to an Evolutionary Juncture of Humanity

by Sushant Sudhakaran

Cecil the lion’s death brings into light two contradictory aspects of the evolution of our Humanity. The stronger of the two perspectives might shape our tomorrow.

A lion named Cecil gets killed. Not for food. Not with monetary aims. But for mere pleasure. The killing happens in a remote jungle in Zimbabwe. But the story gets out. And it spreads like wildfire. A massive wave of protest against the inhuman behaviour of a human being rises on the internet. The tale roars with pain and agony and the guilty killer is thrown into the light immediately. Now his crime is no more a priceless possession (as he expected it to be) but a shameless mark on his whole life and he faces crucial repercussions in this aftermath.

The whole incident brings before our eyes two major points concerned with our evolution as human beings. The first is the expansion that our ability to communicate. Each one of us has evolved today as a storyteller and now we efficiently gather, share and evoke results through our stories- thus breaking the barriers of space virtually. This is happening in a way that wasn’t even imagined a century ago.

The second aspect that comes before our eyes is a decaying yet alive primitive wave of thought that the human race is superior to the rest of the World. We still tend to believe that we possess the right to kill for mere satisfaction of the still lingering animal instincts.

And when we keep these two aspects side by side, our whole evolution looks back at us with a smirk of irony.

We humans have somehow not evolved above the idea that we are beings who are superior to the rest of the nature. And our ego expansion has not stopped here. We don’t even tend to realize that our existence depends upon the universe around us. We somehow  continue to silently believe that we as creatures could outlive all that is around us. Somehow we expect to exist even without the space around and even without the existence of time.

One Herb: ‘Triple Action’ Against Skin Cancer, Photo-Aging and Liver Detox

milk-thistle-flowerby Christina Sarich

Need something besides toxic sunscreen to protect against skin cancer? How about the herb, milk thistle?

Milk thistle is already well-known for its ability to help the liver detoxify itself, but evidently it has several important effects on our skin, too. Milk thistle protects against photo-aging, or UV damage, and effectively blocks both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) induced skin carcinogens. Studies at the University of Colorado Cancer Center found that the extract of the milk thistle plant was exceptional at preventing skin cancer and photo-aging.

It’s a compound called silibinin in milk thistle that does all the hard work to protect you from cancer. Rajesh Agarwal, PhD, co-program leader of Cancer Prevention and Control at the CU Cancer Center and professor at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, said about one of the U of C studies:

“When you have a cell affected by UV radiation, you either want to repair it or kill it so that it cannot go on to cause cancer. We show that silibinin does both.”

A Western Book of the Dead — A Soul Traveler’s Guide to Death, Dying, and the Other Side

Afterlife+-+life+after+death+-+near+death+-+lucid+dreamingBy Robert Moss

I have known since I was a very small boy in Australia that there are worlds beyond physical reality, and that we can journey to those worlds and gain first-hand knowledge of the multidimensional universe and about what actually happens after death.

When I was nine years old, I was woken up to these possibilities during a crisis of illness.

I was rushed to hospital in Melbourne after complaining of a pain in my lower right abdomen. The medical staff found that my appendix was about to burst and I was wheeled into an operating room in short order for an emergency appendectomy.

Under anesthesia on the operating table, I found myself hovering above my body, somewhere up near the ceiling. I decided I didn’t want to watch the bloody work with the scalpel and flowed through the door and along the corridor to where my mother sat hunched and weeping.

I couldn’t stand her pain, so I drifted off to a window, to the brightness outside, to the colors of spring and the laughter of young lovers seated at a sidewalk table, drinking each other’s smiles. I felt the pull of the ocean.

I could not see the beach from the hospital window, so I floated through the glass and out onto a ledge where a blackbird squalled at me and shot straight up into the air. I followed the bird and sailed over the rooftops.

I saw a huge moon-round face, its mouth opened wide to form the gateway to Luna Park. I swooped down through the moon-gate – and plunged into darkness. I tried to reverse direction, but something sucked me downwards. It was like tumbling down a mineshaft, mile after mile beneath the surface of the earth.

Sacred Economics

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Intuition and the Wisdom of the Body

tumblr_ncwpd7TAA81r2miuno1_1280by Bernhard Guenther

How do we learn to trust ourselves? How do we learn to connect with our intuition and inner knowing? How do we separate projections or wishful thinking from genuine intuition and inner knowing? How do we connect to our own unique purpose?

The key lies in reconnecting to the energetic and cellular matrices of the body. We are already disconnected from nature and Her cycles, and have been for thousands of years. In this day and age, technology and computerization have disconnected us even more from our own bodies as well. Many people are now merely “walking brains”. They’re successful in matrix terms, but – having lost body sensitivity, inner guidance and connection to “spirit” – they’ve become mere cogs in a giant machine, without even realizing it.

Observe our current collective living conditions: most of us live in crowded cities, bombarded with EMF pollution and affected by the vibration/frequencies which others emit in close proximity to us (in far more ways and patterns than we could ever imagine). For empaths and very sensitive people, these environments can be extremely overwhelming, as such individuals feel what others feel – especially subtle levels of pain and suffering which non-empaths are not even aware of, due to such emotions being hidden behind a social buffer, built up over years of armoring tactics; because being sensitive and vulnerable is seen as “weak” within our society, driven as it is by a cultural addiction to material success and governed by a ‘dog-eat-dog’ attitude.

Spending Time in Nature

Under such circumstances, it can become confusing to identify what it is that we are truly feeling at any given time – is this reaction coming from me or the other person? That’s been my struggle for nearly my entire life. It was not until I moved into nature, surrounded by trees and wildlife – a place where I don’t even have cell phone reception – that I was able to become (literally and energetically) more grounded. I now see more and more people drawn to living in nature/more natural areas. That’s an instinctual reaction for people who are sensitive to the energetic cosmic changes taking place in the here and now. However, not everyone is in a position to just move back to nature, especially in cases of family and job situations. But it is still possible to spend more time in nature: going on hikes, camping, canoe trips, or merely getting away from the overwhelming city frequencies for an afternoon.

Good and Evil as Defined by Graham Hancock

Our universe may be nothing more than a university of duality, where all things take from in polar opposites. The notion of good and evil, then, is a formative part of our moral universe, and author and researcher Graham Hancock has some fascinating ideas about this often dark universe we live in. Is consciousness engaged in a giant process of growth and rebirth, where both good andevil are learning tools?
