Waking Times

Many of us seem to think that being spiritual means we have to be religious. Just because you aren’t directly affiliated with a specific religion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to be more spiritual. The whole concept of spiritual awareness isn’t all about connecting with a higher divine power, but also connecting with nature and yourself. Once you have established this connection, you will see life from a whole different perspective. People with a highly developed sense of spiritual awareness are often less prone to depression,

The Mystical Treasures of ‘The Golden Cave’

Pfeiffer BeachSoren Dreier, Guest
Waking Times

I touched upon The Golden Cave, as being the realm of the inner Core that we have. I would like to go further into that.

Caves with wonderful treasures have attracted explorers and bounty hunters throughout time. The idea of wonderful treasures of ancient and more present times is very persistent and when they speak of it, they have that far away look in their eyes.

Not that many have been found by the explorers of the external.

Maybe because it is a projection from the realm of our souls.

We all have this pla...

Placebo Paradoxes

When you research medicines, alternative medicines, even medical treatments that do not involve a physical substance, you will see reference to the “placebo effect.” Statements like:

X is no better than a placebo.
Y is probably just a “placebo effect“.
Treatment X is just a placebo.
Medicine X failed to beat a placebo in controlled clinical studies.

What is a placebo? What is a placebo effect? Are they real, fake, or something else? Is the placebo effect magic? No, but placebo effects are a paradox. Merriam Webster defines placebo effect thus:

“… improvement in the condition o...

Consuming a daily serving of canned food products has a more than 1,000% increase in urinary bisphenol A (BPA) concentrations compared with when the same individuals consumed fresh food daily. The study is one of the first to quantify BPA levels in humans after ingestion of canned foods.

The findings were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

A note from Zen: An answer to a question from awakening siblings about how have I kept up with world and American events being outside the US so many years. This is part of a discussion on world topics that we’ve been debating including the engineering of our society and its reactions/non-reactions to the world around us as presented by the mainstream media and the ongoing social memes. This is midstream in our conversation. – Z

5 Tips for Thriving in ‘The Matrix’

WIKI - The MatrixFree Spirit, Guest
Waking Times

You can have an amazing and abundant life free from enslavement to the Matrix once you realize how the Matrix got there in the first place as well as how your thoughts and feelings create your reality in every moment. You are the Master of your own Manifestation and your choices have the power to free or enslave you – as you choose. At first glance – life seems unfair and you may think that you are stuck in a system that is out to consume you. One one level – this is true – but this is not the only reality that you can experience.

The world is a maze of lies. Finding the truth is a major work and not so easy to discern. The whole system has been created to enslave you to an agenda based upon false ideals. Understand that the whole syste...

Diabetes is one of the most rampant diseases of our time. According to the American Diabetes Association, in 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes.

In fact, diabetes is growing at a fairly fast rate. A study completed by the CDC & Research Triangle Institute concluded that If recent trends in diabetes prevalence rates continue linearly over the next 50 years, future changes in the size and demographic characteristics of the U.S. population will lead to dramatic increases in the number of Americans with diagnosed diabetes. [2]

3 Common Mental Health Issues Treatable with Psychedelics

o-LSD-facebookAnna Hunt, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Despite the complicated social perspective regarding psychedelics, more research and attention is being given to the use of psychedelic substances such as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), psilocybin mushrooms, and plants such as ayahuasca to treat mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety, alcoholism and drug addiction.

Psychedelics interact with serotonin receptors in the brain and have a way of enabling people to consider new perspectives and possibilities in life. Unfortunately the political history and existing laws in most countries make it challenging for clinicians and scientists to obtain the necessary regulatory approval for clinical trials.

Sapodilla or sapota (chikoo) is a popular delicious tropical fruit in line with mango and kiwi. It has now joined the list of fruits that have proven anticancer properties.
