‘Soul Contracts’ – Is Freedom Really That Scary?

soul contractSoren Dreier, Guest
Waking Times

I’m continuously confronted with this argument from New Agers or people who are supposedly waking up: ‘My soul contract says…’ or ‘My soul contract forbids me this.’

The innovative quest and persistence for staying in spiritual control systems is amazing.

Have we replaced an earthly law firm entity with some heavenly contract agency that in its divine wisdom has terms set out, of what we can and cannot do, while we walk this earth?

There is no heavenly agency where you have a contract with more or less anal-fixated dis-incarnated bureaucrats who are disapprovingly following your every choice.

That’s not spirituality, that’s the opposite.

How Your Intuition Reveals Your Brain’s Best Decisions

There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance. ~Albert Einstein

We often hear a lot about the great strength of the human intuition, but rarely are we taught how to accurately listen and perceive our intuition. Even though it has been proven time after time, that our intuition is often a better decision maker than our rational mind. And so, one must ask, how do we develop ...

Ferguson Everywhere Now

Blood is dripping down our faces onto the stainless steel of the armored police van. The hot yellow light flickers against the angry eyes of six young black men. We are trembling in pain and rage. Our chests are heaving. We are still breathing. One man’s eyes stare into mine.

“They didn’t have to do that,” he says. He is shaking. “How they hit me in the face when I’m already cuffed? Kicked me too.”

We all chime in, recounting the details of how we were just brutalized.

“They kicked my ribs.”

“They straight smacked my face.”

“They scraped my skin across the asphalt.”

We had just been arrested by the police on the streets of North County St. Louis for peacefully protesting the murder...

Waking Times

A group of international neuroscientists and robotics engineers have discovered for the first time that human brains can indeed ‘talk’ directly to one another, even from thousands of miles away.

A brain-to-brain communication study conducted in coordination with Harvard Medical School has proven that extrasensory mind-to mind interaction can happen over great distances by leveraging different pathways in the mind.

The study, coauthored by Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brai...

How You Can Travel The World & Learn About Organic Farming At The Same Time

Waking Times

While there may be some dogs on the properties you visit WWOOFING is not the kind that is typically associated with barking dogs or other canine species. A few years back now I had the good fortune to travel around New Zealand and spend a few months WWOOFING on the North Island of New Zealand.

It was an incredible experience and possibly one of the best practical educational experiences of my life. WWOOFING for the uninitiated is an acronym for Willing Workers on Organic Farms.

The simple idea behind the concept is to promote awareness of ecological farming practices by living and working on organic farms. WWOOFING also provides a cultural exchange for people of all ages and co...

A Coalition for Major Outreach This 9/11 Anniversary

9 11 truthHeather Callaghan, Contributor
Waking Times

We are rapidly approaching 13 years since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, where the facts surrounding the deaths of thousands of Americans continue in suppressed fashion, garnering yearly rehashes of the original narrative.

As calendar pages turn, so fades public interest and perhaps attempts at outreach and education regarding the facts. As time goes on, 9/11 truth is teetering on the edge of enmeshment with other obscured events which carry the scarlet letter of “conspiracy theory,” and thus, with a public in the dark, the implausible official stories are passed on, but not legitimately investigated.

Ground Zero 911 coalition is determined to prevent the lapse of the facts into an eternal blurr...

In the book “Think Like a Freak“, authors Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner tell us that the three hardest words in the English language are “I don’t know.” These three words are the reason for arguments against homeopathy.
