The Trans Pacific Partnership & Why It’s Nothing But A Corporate Takeover

There is currently plenty of talk about the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement secretly being negotiated. Firstly, if this is such as good deal for everyone, why isn’t there transparency and open debate, and why is this deal being done in private? Doesn’t seem that democratic, does it? Yet it seems the words liberty, democracy, and freedom are overused as catch cries from our political masters, who simply mouth these words to appease the masses. Secondly, I don’t know about you, but when I hear the word “fast track” it conjures up thoughts of missing a few steps or doing things a bit half arsed…

The current “Trans Pacific Partnership” deal, which is being negotiated secretively between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam, may well be another effort to decimate the workforce in favour of multinational profits. The “Public Citizen” organization certainly thinks so. It believes the latest TPP is an effort to offshore American jobs and increase income inequality, increase the cost of medicines, sneak in SOPA-like threats to internet freedom, empower corporations to attack our environmental and health safeguards, expose the U.S. to unsafe food and products, and roll back Wall Street reforms. Sounds like one massive corporate bail out doesn’t it!

Russell Brand Has An Amazing Incident Occur While Visiting A Slum In India

I have to admit, when I first saw Brand’s humour back in the day I wasn’t a fan, and even to this day he’s not really my cup of tea. But his transformation as a person has been amazing to watch and I respect him deeply for using his popularity to share important messages with people of the world. This latest video of his experience visiting an Indian slum is another great example of his consciousness.

He draws attention to “a higher code,” or a deeper understanding humans have beyond all the identities the ego latches onto. He speaks humbly about how even his desire to buy sweets for the children of the slum was still in some way derived from ego, and other similar realizations. These are powerful lessons that we would all benefit from hearing and engaging with on a daily basis.

Responses To New Mandatory Vaccine Law Go Wild, Jim Carrey Calls Out “Government Fascism”

Following the passing of mandatory vaccines for children in California, various public figures and activists, including Jim Carrey, took to social media to voice their thoughts around the new mandate. 

The bill, passed this Monday, removes all exemptions to vaccine requirements for school entry except those medically indicated.

Naturally, the bill has created significant and acrimonious opposition – including comparisons to Nazi Germany – and controversy that has surrounded the bill since its inception, inspired by the over-dramatized outbreak of measles that began at Disneyland last winter.

The law applies to students attending any public or private school in the state, so parents who choose not to vaccinate children for non-medical reasons would need to homeschool their children. The only other states with similar immunization policies that do not allow any non-medical exemptions are Mississippi and West Virginia.

Who Is “Hooked” Into Your Aura? Learn To Clear Negative Cords & Release Self-Sabotage

From an energetic perspective, there are three things that are integral to maintaining a healthy body and state of mind: 1) adequate energy flowing inward 2) proper releasing of unnecessary energy 3) proper energy flow. If any one of these three is out of balance, a number of energetic disturbances can result.

When our energy isn’t flowing properly, a part of you will feel “stuck” – like your progress has been halted and no matter what you do, it feels like you cannot move forward.

If this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing the energetic phenomenon called “cording.” A cord acts somewhat like a leash between you and a situation, environment, memory, or person keeping you energetically bonded. The cord is a result from a perceived need to be attached.

There are a number of different types of cords, each serving a unique purpose. All types of cording essentially do the same thing: they keep you attached to something or someone in a negative way. When cords are discovered, healed, and released, the result is a greater ability to move forward in life easily.

Below are three ways to know if an energetic cord may be holding you back:

1. Feeling like you can’t move on after a break up.

Repair Your Energy Body With Nature

Crystals, sound healing, diet, meditation, prayer, fasting, chanting, psychedelics, healing modalities, and breathing exercises are common methods spiritual seekers use to help them improve their metaphysical abilities. Unfortunately, some of these methods are not always readily available or feasible (or sometimes even legal!) for everyone to try for themselves. As someone who assists others in developing their intuition, I find that there is one method that is almost always available and totally free: nature.

Dictionary.com defines “nature” as, “The phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape and other products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations.”

This “phenomena” has a really quite amazing effect on the energy body. It heals, restores, cleanses, and much more. What’s even more incredible is that each of the many aspects of nature (different environments, herbs, trees etc.) help to facilitate different types of energy healing. So really there is an unlimited number of combinations available to you at any given place on the planet.

Full Moon in Capricorn: Sorting Out Responsibilities With Emotional Dependencies

We will be having a Full Moon in Capricorn on the night of Wednesday, July 1st in the Americas and on July 2nd everywhere else in the world. (Universal Time: July 2nd at 2:20am.) Full Moons are the peak of the Moon cycle, as this is when the light of the Sun completely fills the Moon and marks the beginning of the following 2 week period when the light starts fading. This is known as the “waning phase.” Symbolically, because this is when the light begins to recede, this represents a time of “release.” Full Moons are generally the most intense time of the Moon cycle and are also a very lively time.

New Proof That Our Emotions Cause Physical Pain & How To Change Them

In the ancient arts of Chinese Medicine, Yoga, and Ayurveda, there was no doubt among practitioners that anger could cause a heart attack, or chronic sadness could cause dementia. It was not unusual for a master to exterminate chronic pain in different joints and muscles, or even to cure liver, kidney, or stomach diseases by addressing deeply held emotions like fear, frustration, jealousy, and anxiety. These feats have been dismissed by modern medicine as placebo, or simply glazed over with the latest pharmaceutical prescription at most doctors’ offices, but new evidence has emerged that proves our emotions directly affect our physical health.

Is Your Sadness Causing Your Symptoms?

The phenomenon of emotional health being inextricably linked to physical health has been negated by modern medicine repeatedly, with only small allowances made in integrative medicine, and extremely few studies which support this idea making their way into mainstream publications.

The US Sent This Highly Controversial Bill To The White House While We Celebrated The Legalization Of Same Sex Marriage

I could not be happier that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage nationwide this past Friday, but I’m sitting here wondering: what do we have to give up as we win this victory?

Let’s think about this scenario right now.

It’s 2015, the legalization of same-sex marriage should have happened many years ago. It’s what the majority of citizens want and the government has been working on getting it passed in all states. Why is it that this happened on Friday, and so suddenly? Could it be to distract us from something else?

Don’t get me wrong, I danced, I cheered and I celebrated all day at this victory. Please do not confuse this article to mean that I am not incredibly happy about the legalization of same-sex marriage, because I am. But I am also wondering if anything else is happening, below the surface.

What if this is yet another way for those in power to keep us ignorant and uninvolved?

This much is clear: there’s more going on behind the scenes than what is immediately apparent. Perhaps, amongst our celebration, something bigger is going down.

We have a sensationalist culture: We adore the obscene. We gawk at visuals. We’re addicted to visceral reactions. We love the next news story; the triumph, the drama, and even the despair.

What Happens to People Who Meditate for the First Time

There have been numerous studies detailing what happens to the brain in long-term meditators, but what exactly happens to people who meditate for the first time?

Sara Lazar, a Harvard researcher, has gained quite some notoriety detailing how the brain actually grows grey matter when people meditate. Other studies have shown that meditation improves IQ, and lessens depression. In addition to these benefits, meditation also:

  • Reduces alcohol and substance consumption, reduces blood pressure (Chiesa, 2009),
  • Decreases anxiety, depressive symptoms, and relapses (Coelho, Canter, & Ernst, 2007; Kim et al., 2009)
  • Helps patients suffering from various types of chronic pain (Chiesa & Serretti, in press)
  • Lowers the incidence of stress (Chiesa & Serretti, 2009)
  • Aids cancer patients (Ledesma & Kumano, 2009)

Most people think they have to meditate for years before they start seeing any of these improvements, but a study conducted by Chiesa, Calati, and Serretti shows that after just eight short weeks of meditation, people start to experience improved cognitive functioning.

The Psychology Of The Major Arcana (Tarot Cards)

Tarot cards are a form of divination which assist in allowing a sneak peek into a potential future. A common misconception is that the future is set in stone, and when the cards fall – that is your fate. It may be a bit unorthodox to the orthodox tarot reader, but I have come to understand that the future is malleable, and nothing is set in stone. What can be, will be, but will become because of the thoughts your consciousness is projecting. There may be certain aspects of the future that are beyond our control, but what we can control is ourselves, and controlling our thoughts can create a better reality.

In the 21+ years that I have been reading tarot/oracle cards, I have come to discover that there really is nothing magical, mystical, or fantastical about the cards in themselves… however the intention of knowing allows the universe to “work through you” (in a sense) to show you what you may be soon attracting because of your thinking patterns. The cards are not necessarily a tool to tell your fortune, rather a tool for self exploration of what’s happening here and now.
