Good News For Elephants: China’s Price Of Ivory Has Plummeted

by Alexa Erickson, Collective Evolution

China’s ivory trade has wreaked havoc on the elephant population. Approximately 35,000 elephants are killed annually, largely in part due to the illegal international ivory trade demanded in China primarily. The need to reduce demand for ivory is vital for stopping the endangered Asian elephant and threatened African elephant.

But it looks like we may finally be seeing a breakthrough. As China prepares to impose a domestic ban on the ivory trade, a new report reveals that the price of raw ivory is falling. This is particularly good for African elephants, who have been subject to poaching by the thousands for their tusks, which are then smuggled into China.

According to Save the Elephants researchers, while the wholesale price in early 2014 was $2,100 per kilogram, it had dropped  to $730 per kilogram by last month.

The Goddess Roots of Easter: Where The Eggs & Bunny Came From

by Giovanni Bartolomeo, Collective Evolution

The following article was written by a very inspiring friend of mine that I was fortunate enough to recently meet. Her name is Clarity Bartleet and in the last few years she has gone through some incredible transformations. She has been inspired to get in touch with her divine femininity and also connect with many women through various women’s circles to help them reconnect as well. We were fortunate enough  to sit down and record an Episode of “The Way Within” with her, (www.thewaywithin.me) and discuss the Origins of the Easter Story and much more. You can listen or watch that episode which is linked at the bottom of this article.

Here’s the article Clarity wrote for Collective Evolution:

Inner Earth Is Teeming With Life: Multicellular Animals Discovered Miles Below Earth’s Surface

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

A recent article by the Smithsonian shed light on the fact that more than a mile below the surface, our planet supports diverse creatures that could give clues about life across the solar system. This doesn’t come as a surprise, as it wasn’t long ago when NASA scientists held a press conference expressing that “Mars is the planet most like Earth.” In the past, Mars had an extensive atmosphere with a huge ocean two thirds the size of the Northern hemisphere. They explained that, “Something happened, and that Mars suffered a major climate change and lost its surface water.” Here is a lecture given by X-NASA scientist Dr. John Brandenburg, who was the Deputy Manager for the Clementine Mission to the Moon, explaining how they have evidence that there was intelligent life existing on Mars at the time.

The Most Viewed File In The FBI Vault Shows Us What The World Is Really Interested In Right Now

by Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

The topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials has been gaining a lot of traction in recent years, especially thanks to the plethora of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Tons of government agencies have declassified an overwhelming number of documents exposing not only the existence of UFOs, but the frequency at which they’re spotted and the physics-defying maneuvers that they carryout.

Of course, UFOs don’t necessarily equate to extraterrestrial technology; however, a significant amount of people have come forward discussing the existence of extraterrestrial (ET) life, including civilian eye witnesses, military personnel, and government officials from around the world.

Mike Gravel, former Democratic Senator, explained, “Something is monitoring the planet, and they are monitoring it very cautiously, because we are a very warlike planet.”

Mercury JUST Went Retrograde Again, This Time In Taurus & Aries - Here's What It Might Mean For You

by Carmen Di Luccio, Collective Evolution

Mercury is once again going retrograde starting off in Taurus and ending in Aries. This is when it appears to be going backwards from our geocentric (Earth-based) perspective. It officially begins on April 9th/10th and lasts until May 3rd/4th. Some of its well-known disruptive effects may have already started to be noticeable for you in the days leading up to its start, and in some cases even a few weeks before.

Mercury rules over communication and transmitting information or data as well as the mind and its ability to analyze and discern. Commuting, reading/writing, mechanical/moving parts, the internet and anything else related to communication technology such as phones/computers are all under the rulership of this planet.

Archaeologists Announce The Discovery Of A 3,700 Year-Old Pyramid In Egypt

by Alexa Erickson, Collective Evolution

A land steeped in ancient history and thought to be the birthplace of Western civilization, Egypt — and its monuments in particular — continues to mystify and intrigue historians and archaeologists. The majority of these monuments reside on the west side of the Nile, known as the Land of the Dead. And on the east side of the Nile, monuments were reserved for the use of the living.

A prosperous and highly religious people, Egyptians took advantage of the land they lived on and its great resources. A nation of perfectionists, their attention to detail served them well throughout their industrious endeavours. Because the Egyptians believes their kind a mortal god, who became one with the immortal gods when he died, it became necessary to protect his body, and so the attention to proper burial came to be, hence the giant pile of solid stone.

Along with the pyramids serving as tomb, they also functioned as a temple complex for the deified Pharaoh.

How Your Breath Is Your Brain's Remote Control, According To New Study

by Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

For centuries, yogis have been expressing the incredible benefits meditation can provide. More recently, meditation has become a more mainstream means of treating anxiety and stress, as deep breathing has been proven to calm the nervous system and reduce our heart rate. Avid meditators or individuals who practice breathing techniques typically report that such practices have the ability to silence or slow down the mind. This begs the question: How exactly does meditation and controlled breathing affect our brain?

We’ve all heard the saying “take a deep breath,” and there’s actually some merit to that. A new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that there’s a direct link between nasal breathing and our cognitive function.

They Thought She Was Insane: Doctor Finds RFID Chip In Sex Trafficking Victim…

by Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.9 million human trafficking victims worldwide and 4.5 million people trapped in forced sex trafficking around the globe. At least 100,000 children are prostituted annually in the U.S., adding to the $9.8 billion U.S. sex trafficking industry. This is an extremely lucrative business, as pimps typically make between $150K and $200K per child annually and exploit 4-6 girls, on average.

A Fasting Diet Could Reverse Diabetes & Repair The Pancreas, New Research Shows

by Alexa Erickson, Collective Evolution

According to a new study published in the journal Cell, a new fasting diet might be able to reboot the body.

The research explains that the diet triggers the pancreas to regenerate itself, which works to control blood sugar levels and reverse symptoms of diabetes.

The scientists put mice into an artificial fasting mode for four days a week over a period of several months to regenerate beta cells in the pancreas, which stores and releases insulin, and saw that working cells took the place of damaged ones. The team even experimented on pancreatic cell cultures from human donors affected by type I diabetes, and found that the diet generated additional insulin, as well as the Ngn3 protein needed to ensure the pancreas functions correctly.

Having been tested only on mice and on human cells in lab conditions, there is still a ways to go to prove its efficacy in the real world. Researchers also advise against trying it at home as a means for treating diabetes.

Harvard Scientists Think They’ve Pinpointed The Physical Source Of Consciousness

by Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking inside a radio for the announcer. – Nassim Haramein

The quote above is great food for thoughts before you get into this article. It also related to the video posted at the end of this article.

For years, quantum physicists have been trying to catch up to what many ancient spiritual practices have been preaching for centuries. We, along with everything else in existence, are made up of consciousness. Ancient yogic, Hindu, and Buddhist texts claim that we are fundamentally connected to everything, a concept commonly referred to as “oneness,” but only now is science proving the truth of these claims.

Researchers at Harvard University have been studying consciousness, and more specifically, where exactly it originates in human beings. What does it mean to be human? Are we defined by our emotions, the awareness of our existence, or something much greater? These are the questions the scientific community are finally starting to ask.
