  red rose hips CROPPED.jpg   6 Keys to Making the Global Shift in Human Consciousness

The great shift in the consciousness of humanity has hit critical mass and passed the point of no return. It’s been building slowly but surely, and now it’s about to kick into high gear. The next decade or so will be a period of enormous change and perhaps more than a little turbulence. Think of this as the process of humanity going into labour as it begins to birth a new earth reality. In this article, I offer what I consider the six keys to smoothly and successfully making the shift to the New Earth and becoming a charter member of a wonderful new era of humanity.

  10 Life Lessons I Learned as a Psychiatric Nurse – and Patient   The Quote That Helped Me Stop Chasing the Tail of Self-Esteem

Over the past 25 years, I have been immersed in the mental health and addiction system as a patient, later as staff, as a Registered Nurse (RN), and eventually as a supervisor. My time in the mental health system officially began at age 17 when I was first hospitalised in a psychiatric unit. This preceded further hospitalisations, a number of treatment episodes for alcoholism/addiction, along with multiple stints of incarceration in jails. Eventually, through this experience, I was able to embrace recovery and ultimately gain employment at some of these same facilities in which I was treated.

  Spirit Medicine for the Age of Chaos, Division and Decay   Are We Consciously Using Our Power to Choose?

As we move through life, and navigate our experiences, we are constantly in a position of choice. Each moment presents yet another opportunity to choose anew. Each second holds a new choice point from which to start again in the now. With each step forward on our path, we get to choose where we place our foot next.

I find it easy to imagine a better world, one in which compassion and brotherhood reign supreme. Where greed has been dethroned and truth is respected and revered. A world where our resources are applied creatively, where technology liberates people instead of killing them, and where the natural world is as precious as the human body.

  Trust Your Own Truth?  

Trust Your Own Truth

Henry David Thoreau once said “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” For some time recently, I had been deeply questioning what is true and how can I know what is real? I have wondered what is the purpose of life and what is beyond it. I felt lost and uncertain of life and it’s purpose. What are we all doing here? It came to a point where I felt there were three main things I knew:

Being an authentic voice of change can be what breaks through the collective illusions — especially when it’s hard to even speak above the deafening roar of unconsciousness, judgements, and social programming. Such authenticity has the power to dissolve the veils of separation, awaken those who are asleep, and remind those who may have forgotten what incredibly powerful, spiritual energetic beings of light, we all truly are.

Humans Crave Connection: Why Loneliness Is Dangerous to Health

Humans are social animals. We naturally bond and pair as couples in partnerships and marriage. We live together as families and tribes, and we gather as communities. No doubt this is a manifestation of our spiritual selves which are never alone. This concept has many forms of dress. We call it our connection to God, or with our higher Self, or our oneness with Nature. In some religious traditions, we are all spiritual children of the Creator, or the Great Spirit. In others, as in Kabbalistic traditions, we originate from sparks of one light.

  Are You Awake? Or Just Informed?   6 Signs Someone In Your Life is a ‘Control Freak’ … and What To Do About It

We all know someone who is a “control freak.” He or she can’t seem to stop giving unsolicited advice or tell you what to do, and how to do it. At first, you might actually get along, but soon you realise that the attitude of “listen to me, I know better!” seems to permeate the majority of their interactions, and will ultimately end up pushing people away. Control freaks feel compelled to orchestrate and manipulate people and situations to make sure everything goes “their way,” and even if their intentions might be benign, it can cause a lot of pain.

  Are You Awake? Or Just Informed?   10 Signs of Our Global Awakening

Since time immemorial, under the ruling thumb of the world’s dark overlords, humanity has been hacked, stymied, suppressed and coerced into submission through mind controlling, soul destroying atrocity. Those unable to see that just about every subject under the sun is a deception and how their family and friends are affected don’t yet realise the extent to which the dark overlords have us snugly stitched up.

What would the world look like if instead of living our lives according to how we are told we ‘should’ be, we were all free to follow the deep callings of our hearts? Diehard capitalists would recoil at the thought and insist that civilization would come to a halt. But would everyone really stop working and choose to spend their days lounging around doing nothing? I don’t think so. We humans are curious, industrious creatures who are naturally driven by a passion to explore, learn and create.

It’s such a remarkable time we’re living in right now. All of this going on both within and without us is happening almost before we can even begin to identify what it is we’re going through or where we’re headed. It’s very much like we’re flying over and around new rocks in the stream of life and shooting down even more unexpected and sometimes seriously daunting rapids.

Ageing can have a lot of issues attached to it: The body is no longer at the top of its game and gravity is slowly but surely drawing the body down to its final resting place. We try not to complain, but Bette Davis probably said it best: Old age is no place for sissies.

The Spellbinding Effect of Stories

My first job was as a lawyer. I was not a very happy or inspired lawyer. One night I was driving home listening to a radio report, and there is something very intimate about radio: a voice comes out of a machine and into the listener’s ear. With rain pounding the windscreen and only the dashboard lights and the stereo for company, I thought to myself, ‘This is what I want to do.’ So I became a radio journalist.

– Where Imperialism and Spirituality Collide

The word ‘tantra’ signifies confluence and integration; a fusion. Sanskrit for ‘loom’, a device which weaves together string into cloth, tantra is an ancient word with many properties and uses; it has been variously used to describe the knots of strings weaved together in a rug, and the cord on which sacred mala bead necklaces were strung. (Mala beads are Tibetan prayer necklaces of 108 beads used to assist mentally or vocally repeating a mantra 108 times.) Today the word tantra is often used in reference to the union of lovemaking.

Five Signs That Humanity is Detached from the Natural World

In his 2010 book, At Home: A Short History of Private Life, Bill Bryson wrote that the development of civilization was a process of "getting comfortable slowly." Of course, this desire for comfort is an understandable one: Most of us would rather receive our water from indoor faucets, for instance, than draw water from a spring many miles from our home. And certainly, most of us would rather live in a stable house than a tent or a cave, where we are at the mercy of the elements.

There is a heightening level of awareness within the human race with regard to nature and all that it contains within it. Everything from the discoveries of the rudiments of language in monkeys, metacognition in dolphins, self-awareness of elephants, the ability for animals to tell “right” from “wrong”, to the creation and extension of bills of rights for animals and plants by countries such as Switzerland and Ecuador as well as the acknowledgment of dolphins as being non-human persons.

Science will destroy humanity, says team of scientists

One of the primary goals of science is to advance knowledge and understanding to improve the human condition, but all too often this noble field of study has devolved into a profit-seeking quest for power, at the expense of mankind. Indeed, the science of technology is perhaps the worst culprit, a team of mathematicians, philosophers and scientists at Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute is warning.
