As the vasanas continue to go off as the rising energies continue to smoke us out, I find conditioned behavior arising that alarms me, that I need to stop.
The current pattern of conditioned behavior I’m observing is self-righteousness.
This is one that I have to be clear of, the sooner the better. But it runs very deep and is deeply protective. Continue reading Cleansing Self-Righteousness: More Third Dimentia

#Curcumin is your anti-inflammatory superhero!
It is already well known that Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has demonstrated anti-viral and anti-fungal properties and can help protect against cancer. Inflammation is the cause of many chronic diseases that cause health to deteriorate and even to develop cancer.
Adrian Gombart from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, in 2012, a report on the role of curcumin in innate immune function.
The research discovered that curcumin nearly tripled the expression of a gene that encodes a protein known as cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide (CAMP), which can help combat bacteria, viruses and fungi that have not been previously encountered by the immune system.

(Era of Wisdom) New rain tests from Stop Spraying Us show 200 micrograms per liter aluminum in Sacramento rain, in stark contrast to the 4,700 micrograms per liter observed a few months ago.
While a normal level is around zero, what could cause such incredibly sharp contrast in the readings? Perhaps… artificially seeding the stratosphere with aluminum haze as part of “Stratospheric Aerosol Injection,” as suggested by CIA director John Brennan, is to blame.
This Era of Wisdom video explains: Continue reading New Tests Put Perspective to 100x Reporting Limit Aluminum in Sacramento Rain: Geoengineering Evidence

You Are On a Mission
Prior to birth, just like an artist who is selecting which paints will go onto the blank canvas, our souls choose a set of colors to work with which determine our parents, ethnicity, country of birth, etc. We also choose a number of possible paths that would allow us to experience certain aspects of our being.
For instance, if courage is one of those aspects of ourselves we wish to experience, we would collaborate with other souls in this physical realm so circumstances would arise in our lives where we are required to invoke courage within us. Likewise, we choose a certain mission, or a calling that would allow us to maximize our full potentials on this live stage called earth.

“We’re all afraid we’re not enough… At the core, there’s a place where people feel they’re not smart enough, young enough, old enough, rich enough, funny enough, something enough. And it’s the worst feeling because, underneath that, our fear is then, ‘I won’t be loved.’” ~ Tony Robbins
When I was a girl, I hardly stopped. Running, climbing, hiding, jumping, chasing, lunging, and flying (well, sort of). I was always moving. And I liked it. I liked moving. I liked climbing and jumping. Continue reading Bouncy Castles & Road Maps: Failing and Being Enough

Architecture means many things to many people: It’s a form of creative expression, a tool for meticulous construction, a craft, a profession. In short, it’s much more than just perfectly placing bricks to form a building.
In this Ted Talk, Michael Murphy discusses how his father’s brush with death ultimately opened the doors to his own life path of architecture, but not just as a profession, and not just as a creative expression.
When designing, Murphy and his team go beyond the blueprint, considering things like how like airflow and light can produce both a healthy community and gorgeous structures. Continue reading Architecture is More Than a Clever Arrangement of Bricks: This Man Transforms it Into a Healing Process

Not since Custer has an Anglo been as surprised as Kelcy Warren by a powerful force of Indians thwarting his ambition.
In bad movies (and bad history alike), the Native American ceremonial pipe figured prominently as symbol of defeat — typically in a cliched scene of subdued chieftains signing a treaty of surrender and passing around a “peace pipe” in a sorrowful gesture to seal the raw deal.
The reality is that the communal smoking of a ceremonial pipe, often filled with tobacco, is a centuries-old tradition rich in spiritual meaning for many Native people who see it as an eternal channel through which tribes seek metaphysical strength, courage and endurance. The ceremonial pipe both shapes and conveys Native people’s living history, a story that’s perpetually being written. Continue reading A Tale of Two Pipes

If it’s possible in this oversaturated age for a mass-protest movement to fly under the radar, the battle over the building of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline certainly qualifies.
Just this past weekend in Morton County, North Dakota, 127 people were arrested during protests over renewed construction, which follows what protesters believed was relief from the federal government, in the form of a multi-agency letter to the pipeline builders, Energy Transfer Partners, asking them to halt building for tribal consultation and the preparation of environmental-impact statements. The construction has continued apace. Continue reading Amy Goodman on Why the North Dakota Pipeline Standoff Is Only Getting Worse

Browsing through history, it’s very clear that the world has undergone many monumental shifts in society that have uprooted it’s very foundation in place of new seed.
A paradigm shift is a fundamental change in approach or underlining assumptions. For example, when Pythagoras proposed that the Earth was round instead of flat, the foundation of science and people’s understanding of the world was completely changed. Similarly, when the Industrial Revolution took place there was a complete shift in manufacturing, lifestyle, and economics. Continue reading 8 Signs the World is Undergoing a Paradigm Shift
