3 Ways to Heal a Divided Trump America – Awake Free!

by Jeff Singh,

Ever since Trump won a divisive presidential election, the battle lines are being drawn through cabinet selectionsprotests, the media and internet.

No matter where we turn, on our TVs, social media, and conversations, we are surrounded by political rhetoric.

How are we going to survive with our sanity to work together again and make progress as a nation?

For that matter, how are we going to survive the holidays? Cause, you know, everybody’s got friends and relatives that are going to let you know how they feel.

While it’s pointless to argue over fixed beliefs, we could instead, connect on deeper concerns.

Many have called for Trump, Hillary, and other leaders to step up and address the division earnestly.

Sigh, (deep breath). Seriously, take a deep breath right now.

We’re not here to wait for leaders to dictate how we live our lives.

Finland Will Become The First Country In The World To Get Rid of All School Subjects

By Jess Murray, Truth Theory

A revolution is coming for schools in Finland in the form of a destruction of all formal school subjects.

The head of the Department of Education in Helsinki, Marjo Kyllonen, has announced that he believes that the way children are taught now is based of a style that was a benefit to students in the beginnings of the 1900s, but now is no longer relevant and beneficial to our modernised way of learning. He strongly believes that our needs have changed and so we need to adapt our teachings to match with our new way of thinking and developing.

The huge changes will involve the removal of school subjects from the curriculum, as proposed by Finnish officials, which will be replaced by the study of individual events and phenomena.

This means that students will no longer have individual classes on subjects such as maths, geography and history, but will instead study an event, such as the Second World War, from the perspectives of maths, geography and history.

There is even a proposed course called “working in a cafe” which will provide students with skills on the English language, economics and communication.

This new system, which is due to commence in 2020, will be introduced to students at the age of 16, meaning that after completing their initial broad subject studies, they can then choose for themselves which particular event or phenomenon that they wish to study, based on their interests and future prospects.

Ho’oponopono: Healing For Ourselves & Our World

by Ulonda Faye , The Mind Unleashed

We live in a world that is guided by the universal law of cause and effect.  What we as individuals, groups of people, communities, societies and countries put out into the world through our thoughts, manifests. What we put into our collective consciousness has an effect. The cause being the thought. Everything is energy.  All things have an energetic effect. We are all responsible for the shape of our lives and our world. We are all connected and bound together through this principle. When we hurt one another, whether intentionally or not, it is truly important for us to find forgiveness and healing.

“I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.”

This is Ho’oponopono. These four sentences. It is a healing tool we can utilize for forgiveness. At this time, we may offer it to our newly elected world leaders, friends, family or a situation such as the turbulent US presidential election. For those of us unfamiliar with Ho’oponopono, these four sentences offered to both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, as an example, may feel like an instant trigger of built up internal emotions as many people have been going through anger, fear, hurt, confusion, and sadness both during and after this election. This healing modality can help take us from those feelings to feelings of deep forgiveness, acceptance, love and peace.

On the Brink

by Julian Rose

Note: the author commenced the writing of this essay prior to the US elections.

I feel uneasy. Like I'm bracing for something. As if something devious and illusive is being hatched behind my back by unseen forces of a distinctly untrustworthy nature. That's what it feels like.

The uneasiness is not entirely negative, as it seems to be gearing me up to be prepared for something, something big. Some 'event' which could be surprisingly close at hand.

Now upon further scrutiny, I recognize that this isn't purely something personal. It's something 'in the air', as they say. It's a state of tension; something like the way atmospheric pressure builds-up just before a thunderstorm.

It's as though some warning system is engaging itself at the gut level. Is the species called 'human' about to undergo some big upheaval? Something that takes us all to the brink? Are we approaching the end point of our long engagement with this profligate, insupportable materialistic life style to which much of humanity has been wedded for so long?

Golden Eagles Back From The Brink As Numbers Soar To 'Historic' Levels! - TruthTheory

by Jess Murray Truth Theory

This week has brought incredible news for the natural world as the population of one of Britain’s most iconic birds has reached more than 500 pairs for the first time since records began.

The numbers of the golden eagles in Scotland were recorded in a country-wide survey which was carried out last year, although conservationists say that numbers are still far below what they should be.

Numbers have increased by 15% since the last census in 2003, which means that numbers rose from 442 to 508 pairs, meaning that the species can now be assessed as having “favourable conservation status”.

The team conducted the survey in areas where there has been evidence of golden eagles in the past, and surveyed a total of 729 ranges.

RSPB Scotland’s head of species and land management Duncan Orr-Ewing believes that Scotland could hold about 800 pairs in total, although current numbers are still substantially below Scotland’s carrying capacity.

Although numbers have risen for Britain’s top avian predator, which has complete protection by UK-wide legislation, numbers are still not as they should be for the area. Orr-Ewing believes that one reason for this may be due to heavily over-grazed areas over the generations caused by deer and sheep, meaning that there are less prey species available for the eagles.

The Trump Election Will Spark More Individual & Collective Healing

by Lance Schuttler , The Mind Unleashed

This article will not be a pro-Trump or a pro-Hillary piece. It will have little to do with politics and more to do with a much bigger picture. As everyone knows, many people are celebrating the Trump victory and many people are mourning it. What is needed right now is a wider perspective at what is occurring.

With Donald Trump set to take over the Oval Office in late January of 2017, there are many unknowns, just as it would be if Hillary would have won.

What is going to happen with health insurance? What is going to happen with immigration laws? What is going to happen with foreign policy in relation to other nations? More importantly, what is going to happen to us as individuals and humanity as a whole?

How To Transform & Heal Ourselves This Halloween

by Lance Schuttler , The Mind Unleashed

As we celebrate Halloween on October 31st, let us ask ourselves, “How can we tap into our divinity and empowerment on this dynamic day?”

Before being reminded of the essence of Halloween, let’s ask ourselves some potent questions:

Have we given away our power in any way, shape or form this year?  If yes, how did it come about?  Why did we choose to allow it?  Where can we take responsibility? How can we learn better discernment moving forward?  What is the lesson here for us to learn?  Access the inner-knowing coming forth.

As many of us know, this Celtic festival, known as Samhain, originated in what is now Great Britain.  It marks the end of the harvesting season, and the beginning of a new year.  A change in Mother Earth’s cycle of long days of light transform to become shorter and darker days.  This creates space for the season where we honor the rest and death cycle.

According to Celtic tradition, in the night of the 31st, the veil between the world of the living and dead is the thinnest, and those who have passed over, walk the Earth with us.  We are given an opportunity to connect deeply through divine access to those who have left.  We always have this ability to communicate, but this night truly allows us to tap into a clear energy primed and ready to connect.

8 Ways You Can Submit To The Magic Of Life - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

We live in a magical world and magic is definitely a real thing! And for those of you who refute this just picture this. Living on a gigantic rock flying around the universe at 490,000 miles per hour. This gigantic rock happens to be the perfect distance from a great ball of fire that if it was just a little closer or a little farther away this rock would be uninhabitable. In addition to this gigantic rock and ball of fire, we also have another gigantic rock (not as big as the one we live on) that moves oceans, controls life cycles and effects behaviour of life on this giant rock.

This giant rock is also home to nearly 9 billion different variations of life, all of which came from the same source and all of which did not exist in it’s current form at some point in the past. Some of this life has even decided that just surviving is not exciting enough, so they do weird things like make sounds out of strings and sticks and tightened pieces of plastic (music). Dress up and pretend to be other people in an attempt to entertain people who they don’t know (tv/theatre). And make sounds in order to let others know what they are thinking, feeling and doing (language).

Flash-Mob Meditations To Occur At Voting Stations During Election

by Lance Schuttler , The Mind Unleashed

On November 8th, 2016, hundreds and possibly thousands flash-mob meditations will commence at the polling stations everywhere across America. Elevate The Vote says that “this is a non-partisan participatory event that is open to everyone. It’s about the fundamental unity of human life that seems to have been so forgotten in this campaign.”

The intention is to “elevate the consciousness of every U.S. voter on election day, impacting how we feel about ourselves, politics, this election, and each other.”

While many will love this concept, some may be a bit skeptical of it having any effect. With that, we can look further at the studies that have been done on synchronized meditations and the measurable effects they did create.

What is known as the Maharishi Effect has actually been studied over 600 times, which was conducted in 33 countries and in over 250 independent research institutions. The evidence overwhelmingly correlates synchronized group prayer and meditation having extremely positive social, political and economic benefits to the world.  Positive correlations for numerous health benefits to the individual were also observed and confirmed.
