time to expand your vocabulary

a-z compendium of healthy, exalted, positive states of being.

* ACUTE FLUENCY. Happily immersed in artistic creation or scientific exploration; lost in a trance-like state of inventiveness that’s both blissful and taxing; surrendered to a state of grace in which you’re fully engaged in a productive, compelling, and delightful activity. The joy of this demanding, rewarding state is intensified by a sense that time has been suspended, and is rounder and deeper than usual. (Suggested by H. H. Holiday, who reports that extensive studies in this state have been done by Mihaly Cziscenmihaliy in his book, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.)

* AESTHETIC BLISS. Vividly experiencing the colors, textures, tones, scents, and rhythms of the world around you, creating a symbiotic intimacy that dissolves the psychological barriers between you and what you observe. (Suggested by Jeanne Grossetti.)

* AGGRESSIVE SENSITIVITY. Animated by a strong determination to be receptive and empathetic.

* ALIGNMENT WITH THE INFINITY OF THE MOMENT. Reveling in the liberating realization that we are all exactly where we need to be at all times, even if some of us are temporarily in the midst of trial or tribulation, and that human evolution is proceeding exactly as it should, even if we can’t see the big picture of the puzzle that would clarify how all the pieces fit together perfectly. (Suggested by Meredith Jones.)

* AUTONOMOUS NURTURING. Not waiting for someone to give you what you can give yourself. (Suggested by Shannen Davis.)

* BASKING IN ELDER WISDOM. A state of expansive ripeness achieved through listening to the stories of elders. (Suggested by Annabelle Aavard.)

* BIBLIOBLISS. Transported into states of transcendent pleasure while immersed in reading a favorite book. (Suggested by Catherine Kaikowska.)

* BLASPHEMOUS REVERENCE. Acting on the knowledge that the most efficacious form of devotion to the Divine Wow is tinctured with playful or mischievous behavior that prevents the buildup of fanaticism.

* BOO-DUH NATURE. Dwelling in the blithe understanding of the fact that worry is useless because most of what we worry about never happens. (Suggested by Timothy S. Wallace.)

* COMIC INTROSPECTION. Being fully aware of your own foibles while still loving yourself tenderly and maintaining confidence in your ability to give your specific genius to the world. To paraphrase Alan Jones, Dean of Grace Cathedral: following the Byzantine ploys of your ego with compassion and humor as it tries to make itself the center of everything, even of its own suffering and struggle.

* COMPASSIONATE DISCRIMINATION. Having astute judgment without being scornfully judgmental; seeing difficult truths about a situation or person without closing your heart or feeling superior. In the words of Alan Jones: having the ability “to smell a rat without allowing your ability to discern deception sour your vision of the glory and joy that is everyone’s birthright.”

* CRAZED KINDNESS. Having frequent, overpowering urges to bestow gifts, disseminate inspiration, and perpetrate random acts of benevolence.

* ECSTATIC GRATITUDE. Feeling genuine thankfulness with such resplendent intensity that you generate a surge of endorphins in your body and slip into a full-scale outbreak of euphoria.

* EMANCIPATED SURRENDER. Letting go of an attachment without harboring resentment toward the stimuli that led to the necessity of letting go. (Suggested by Timothy S. Wallace.)

* FRIENDLY SHOCK. Welcoming a surprise that will ultimately have benevolent effects.

* HIGHWAY EQUANIMITY. Feeling serene, polite, and benevolent while driving in heavy traffic. (Suggested by Shannen Davis.)

* HOLY LISTENING. Hearing the words of another human being as if they were a direct communication from the Divine Wow to you.

* IMAGINATIVE TRUTH-TELLING. Conveying the truth of any specific situation from multiple angles, thereby mitigating the distortions that result from assuming the truth can be told from a single viewpoint.

* IMPULSIVE LOVE SPREADING. Characterized by a fierce determination to never withhold well-deserved praise, inspirational encouragement, positive feedback, or loving thoughts; often includes a tendency to write love letters on the spur of the moment and on any medium, including napkins, grocery bags, and skin. (Suggested by Laurie Burton.)

* INADVERTENT NATURE WORSHIP. Experiencing the rapture that comes from being outside for extended periods of time. (Suggested by Sue Carol Robinson.)

* INGENIOUS INTIMACY. Having an ability to consistently create deep connections with other human beings, and to use the lush, reverential excitement stimulated by such exchanges to further deepen the connections. A well-crafted talent for dissolving your sense of separateness and enjoying the innocent exultation that erupts in the wake of the dissolution. (Suggested by Sue Carol Robinson.)

* JOYFUL POIGNANCE. Feeling buoyantly joyful about the beauty and mystery of life while remaining aware of the sadness, injustices, wounds, and future fears that form the challenges in an examined life. (Suggested by Alka Bhargava.)

* LATE LATE-BLOOMING. Having a capacity for growth spurts well into old age, long past the time that conventional wisdom says they’re possible.

* LEARNING DELIGHT. Experiencing the brain-reeling pleasure that comes from learning something new. (Suggested by Sue Carol Robinson.)

* NOT HAVING TO BE RIGHT. Fostering an ability, even a willingness, to be proven wrong about one of your initial perceptions or pet theories; having an eagerness to gather information that may change your mind about something you have fervently believed; cultivating a tendency to enjoy being corrected, especially about ideas that are negative or hostile. (Suggested by Sheila Kollasch.)

* ORGIASTIC LUCIDITY. Experiencing an expansive and intricate state of clarity while in the midst of extreme sensual pleasure.

* PERMANENT DIVINE INFATUATION. Having not the abstract understanding but rather a direction perception that the Divine Intelligence, who recreates the universe fresh every moment, is deeply in love with you, even as you are in love with the Divine Intelligence.

* RADICAL CURIOSITY. Characterized by the following traits: an enthusiasm for the mystery embedded in the mundane; a preference for questions over answers; an aversion to stereotyping, generalizations, and jumping to conclusions; a belief that people are unsolvable puzzles; an inclination to be unafraid of both change and absence of change; a strong drive to avoid boredom; a lack of interest in possessing or dominating what you are curious about. (Suggested by Laurie Burton.)

* RELENTLESS UNPRETENTIOUSNESS. Possessing a strong determination to not take yourself too seriously, not take your cherished beliefs too literally, and not take other people’s ideas about you too personally.

* SONGBIRD-IN-A-TREE. The cultivated awareness that daily life presents countless opportunities to be buoyed by moments of ordinary extraordinary beauty, and that these moments are most available if you perceive with your senses and not with your internal turmoil. (Suggested by Lisa Chabot.)

* TENDER RAGE. Maintaining a strong sense of love and protectiveness towards a person or creature or institution you’re angry at.

* VISIONS OF THRILLING EXPLOITS. Experiencing an eruption of intuition that clearly reveals you will attempt a certain adventure in the future, as when you spy a particular mountain for the first time and know you’ll climb it one day. (Suggested by Sue Carol Robinson.)

* WEATHER SENSITIVITY. Having a high degree of awareness about your sensitivity to changes in the weather, and having a skill for managing your responses to those shifts so as to consistently bring out the best in yourself. (Suggested by Julie Caves.)

march against monsanto Toronto 2014 – Nourished Warrior EMPOWER

It began on a long awaited- summery- late May morning, insomniac the night before, filled with endless thoughtloops spinning round my consciousness left over from the previous evenings refresher on the top evil deeds perpetrated by what was voted by Natural News readers as 2013’s ‘ most evil corporation ‘ of the yearthe one, the only, the notorious, the vile and villainous Monsanto. It was a gorgeous day in Queens Park and slowly the gathering of Activists, Concerned Parents, Conscious People and Political groups began to grow.

The peeps behind the day: Millions Against Monsanto the Organic Consumers Association, plus Toronto Non-GMO coalition (a group of organizations from the Toronto area who are working together to increase awareness and effect positive change around GMO issues. ) and The Kids Right To Know. With a Facebook event confirming the attendance of at least 1500, not to mention those of us who refuse to use social media channels – the hope was to reach numbers in the several thousands, people trickled in bit by bit as the little hand crept past the 11, a seeming disorganized mob of protestors began to rally into  a semblance of order as those of us bearing signs were beckoned to the front for photos.

There were some fantastic pieces of work, a few of my favourites ” im so angry i made a sign ” although sarcastic and a bit of a joke, nurture nature, give bees a chance, the angry corn, the bee in a gas mask, we are not your science  experiment, and the 5 armed mutant octopus ( insert obvious symbolism here ) with far-reaching tentacles each grasping one of the evils Monsanto stands for that my Brother had artfully crafted the night before and affixed mcgyver-like to a tennis racket, which quickly became a celebrity with endless photo-requests and paparazzi-esque attention that lasted all day… my choice to go straightup and simple was expressed with an acronym: G-ive M-e O-rganic, i happily affixed a rope to it and slung it around myback.

me@march                                                                                                                                                

One of the highlights of the morning was a most inspiring 16 year old ( and a Friend of my Friend’s Daughter ) – Rachel Parent, who founded at the tender age of 12 ” The Kids Right To Know, & “GMO Just Label It! Campaign”  helping to create mass awareness about the risks of GMOs and pushing for mandatory labeling)  This is the type of teenager that gives me hope for the future of humanity. In a world where the average person hasn’t a clue who Monsanto even is- and would rather watch American Idol than educate themselves on what harm they are doing on the daily, the notion that there are youth who aren’t prey to device disconnect and instead harness this world of mass connection to campaign for unity on the shit that really matters, fills me with appreciation and trust that the future generations may not be entirely lost. With brave and educated young leaders to rally their peers, we have a chance at uniting to save this world from the clutches of all that which we march in protest against. A brief speech on the importance of labelling GMO’s and banning neo-nics gave way to a slew of gratitude, cheers and drum beats as we began our anti-gmo journey.

The crown jewel of the march was a large black coffin filled to the brim with one million dead bees, lost over just a few short months. The death of the bees is a result of the Canadian Government’s ignorant allowance of the use of agricultural neonicotinoid pesticides, ( which harms not only bees but butterflies and birds as well ) primarily used to coat GMO corn and Soy, yet once airborne can traverse its toxicity far and wide…  As we began our march in requiem for the bees we made a quick stop at the parliament building at Queens Park, staging a funeral for today’s casualties of neonicotinoids- one million dead bees, brought to their funeral by Ontario Beekeepers, pallbearers in full beekeeping garb solemnly led the service in honour of the one million lost over a short winter season, followed by a speech aimed at educating masses on the dangers of neonicotinoids and their continued use in our food supply.

 1922288_10151998664087245_8089749291607626645_nBee-Wise:

One in every three bites of food you eat, is made possible by the efforts of our bees. A requiem for so many lost inspires a great deal of fear, and as well it should as many, government included, continue to support mega-corps like Monsanto, and their efforts to corrupt and destroy our food chain from every perceivable angle. And you’ve gotta give ’em credit really, evil ninjalike villains they are- populous isn’t consuming poisons quickly enough to meet their motive, and with so many awakening- what is the most effective next step to take? Whomever had the ah-ha moment, must have let forth a great villainous cackle as they set plans in motion to unleash the swift mass-murder of the very thing that renders our food supply edible.

just to be clear- Colony Collapse Disorder is serious threat to all of us. It is estimated that nearly a third of honeybees worldwide have already been wiped out. Without these bee colonies, pollination crucial for harvest does not happen. At the very least lower crop yields mean higher prices, and eventually all access to produce will diminish entirely.  That’s of course assuming we are referring to organic crops, because GMO crops are engineered to ‘self-pollinate’ – meaning they have no use for nature or for bees, and what happens when an evil giant has no use for something? it gets wiped out. ( the intention here is to gain a total domination strong-hold over the entire world’s food supply, effectively meaning everyone, everywhere has no choice but to consume their genetically engineered and patented seeds )

so WTF does Monsanto care about Bees?

Monsanto, is well aware that pollinators throw a proverbial wrench into their monopoly, ie: Bees allow for crops outside of their total control agenda. Therefore the more GMO’s planted, the more toxic chemicals like Neo-nics used, the more bees will die as they attempt to pollinate. This is a sad reality that has been happening since the introduction of GMO’s into the food supply.
Hilariously, to counter the notion that they are responsible for this mass genocide of bees, Monsanto stealthy decides to buy out a company called Beeologics, the largest bee research firm, previously dedicated to studying the colony collapse phenomenon and whose extensive research named Monsanto as the primary suspect. Shortly after they held a summit with beekeepers which outlined research findings asserting that instead of Beelogic’s previously confirmed GMO crops and deadly insecticides responsibility for bee decimation- the real culprit is actually a small insect called the ‘varroa mite.’ ( a germ that sparks bee viruses)
Beeologics has had a cozy relationship with the USDA, convenient for Monsanto as it will no doubt exploit Beeologics’ ‘biological tools’ in the development of more GMOs, crop chemicals and god knows what else, under the pretense of championing sustainability and progress- all the while obliterating the bee population, the natural environment, organic food and inevitably- humanity itself.

march2014hey, ho, GMOs have got to go, Hey ho, go fuck yourself Monsanto”– whatever chant you were singing that day- you can be certain is was a mantra of shared essence, to make ourselves heard through the streets of Toronto, as typical drivers slowed to look at us slant eyed, some honked in approval and others scowled in inconvenience, ignorant to the notion that we marched for them, their children, their future generations. As we made our way to the beat of a rhythmic tribal drum, the experience became something more than simple protest, chant and assembly of activism- it transcended immediate action into something of a ritualistic, tribal ceremony. Signs waving, mantras repeated like so much japa prayer, and we marched, and we danced and we laughed our way through Toronto’s busiest intersections- immune to the passers-by with put-upon looks, empowering the observers who emanated prideful looks.

Throughout the duration of the 60 minutes or so we marched, chanted and made clear our message to the big blue skies,  i remained continuously astounded by one thought- that fellow activists, advocates and concerned, conscious citizens ‘on five continents, 52 nations and at least 400 cities- round the globe were joined with us, in shared intention. And despite the fact that mainstream media coverage was minimal if not, non-existent, despite the fact that we were lobbying against a super-giant villain with the deepest pockets on the planet, despite the fact that every day it becomes more and more of a foraging hunt and gather to find untainted food options, despite the fact that we were effectively on mute to many of the programmed masses, on this day, across the world we were gathered in shared purpose, setting a collective intention, cultivating a massive wave of collaborative energy that despite all those despites – was shifting something… it was electric in the air and beyond any shadow of doubt- i felt this shifting that brought peace to my troubled mind full of protest for all the evil that i stood against, full of anger for so much death and mass destruction, a shift that only an allegiance of awakened souls could bring about.

Even if that’s just my own singular perspective in an infinite sea of subjective views,  the truth is so much bigger than that- we’d created a global wave of love, and a message of momentum against tolerance– for the oppression, the destruction, the corruption, the degradation, the monopolization… that the genetic engineering of our world is impossible- as long as we sustain this shared intention. Continue to generate this potent and powerful energy of positivity, of progression, of revolution- real change starts with one step. And that day we made many steps, marching for the future of our world.

A monster so much bigger than our organic farmers and our small businesses, our fair trade foods and mom and pop shops- our untainted fields and our legal rights- we may be small. But the magnitude of the monster is dwarfed by the size of our hearts. The capacity of our hope and the energy of our collective voice for change.

the reality remains, unless drastic action is taken to stop Monsanto in its continued quest to dominate global agriculture, the food supply as we know it will continue to destruct, organic farms will disappear one by one. Clean food and safe futures will diminish. This is why we march. This is why the somewhat annoying chant ‘hey-ho G M O’s have got to go, ‘ rolled ’round in my head for days to follow that march, this is why i cannot sleep at night, this is why i petition you to use your voice. to make change within yourself. to educate, to awaken, to share the message as far and wide as you can. The mass media outlets who did not cover our march have vested interests, they cannot broadcast the truth, nor spread the information that is so vitally needed to preserve the future of our planet and ourselves. It’s grassroots efforts, grassroots media, grassroots business that must rise up in collective effort to take back what is rightfully ours.

for those who are unfamiliar, or need a refresher- here is an infographic detailing the dirty dozen- perpetrated upon the world by Monsanto. Please share, PIN, instagram, tweet, print, post and promote the awakening as far and as wide as you can. You don’t have to march nor be an activist, you dont have to give anything up- aside from any mis-guided beliefs that turning up the covers will make the monster stay in the closet. please use your social media prowess to make change.

casualquestioning….

.

I was asked just now…
“Do you ever wonder if our entire universe is quite simply the dream of some random fifth dimensional being… And we are but details and dynamics that craft the most intricate, beautiful and rich tapestry of a deep delta REM”…
an entirely nonchalant inquiry that led me to recall my own relative curiosities previously pondered… Perhaps we are indeed as simple as the tiniest seed of a dandelion floating across a vast verdant field, blown by the hopeful breath of a child wishing for a life of love…

what do you think?

Nourished Warrior Wellness: EMPOWER: 10 truths that you need to know – WTFU vol. 1~ toxintruth

warriorwelnnesWTFU aint what the fuck, but wake the fuck – up. it’s a harsh acronym perhaps, but the intention behind it is relative to the importance of the call to action.

there’s alot of misinformation, disinformation and saturation of useless information in the world we live in.

2012 and the massive energy shift therein saw a quickening that empowered so many more people to begin the awakening process, so much truth unveiled ( and often times quickly veiled over again by mainstream media or discredited by those whom want to keep the masses under their programmed spell. The reality however is that humans, blessed, wonderful, amazing creatures that we are- are meant to evolve. Our destiny is mapped out in the cosmos before we are born and henceforth long after we leave this earthly incarnation ) We certainly aren’t meant to live superficial lives in fearsome apprehension to dive into the deep end of our consciousness… resting in oblivion on material gains, striving for empty existence shrouded by shit that makes no difference. You can strive for money and you can buy yourself a temporary belief that standing on your stacks will get you higher up any ladder to the top, but those who follow a conscious path of course know that ascension can’t be charged on no platinum visa.

The point in short is, that this life in this time, is a miraculous, exciting and powerful opportunity… There are more of us than ever before- answering the call to WTFU and making it their dharma to assist others in the journey to awaken. And to all of you, you know who you are- bless your journey. Please continue.

in reality there are thousands of tiny truths that bring happy daily a-ha moments, and there are massive truths that are often indigestible given what we are, in essence, ‘programmed’ to believe. This list may end up being much more involved than my original intent which is to simply share a topline level of truth- however i will be delivering just 10 truths ( in no particular order ) that are as much a call to action as they are a call to awakening- and essential upon that often perilous path to ascension, some points may be obvious- others perhaps fucking shocking- but essential all the same to keep yourself safe and striving to thrive amidst a world where chaos reigns…

as a preface here i would like to iterate that all things need to be approached in moderation, with ultimate balance as your starting point. Balance is the secret of universal harmony. balance is key. This may be an obvious statement- especially relevant in modern life where its a struggle to survive and pull in the revenue you need to cover your nut- no matter how big or small your nuts are, balance is the only thing that will provide depth and meaning, enrich a life spent working. At the centre of every system of order, every measure of success in relationships, everything in the natural world requires a centrepoint built on fortitude and wise and economical distribution. Ying, Yang, Creation, Destruction, Light, Dark, Hot + Cold = warm… and all life thrives in warmth- from bacteria to humanity- humans thrive when they meet warmth… allow it to flourish in their lives. The concept of balance can apply to personal life vs. work in the world, to finding your core on the yoga mat and mastering that arm balance, to learning the lesson of moderation when indulging in the deliciousness of life. Food, Substances, Technology, Sex…Too much makes you sick, too little and you starve. It’s that point where you meet a sense of satisfaction where your awareness ought spark pause on consumption.  And this lesson of balance applies to those on the conscious path as well- for in knowing how much truth you can handle, when seeking out what’s behind and underneath the surface-finding balance is vital. My journey to awakening has sped up immeasurably in the last year and even as an individual who had her first conscious experience around the tender age of 12- 20+ years passed by so quickly and there is so much to open your eyes to that it often becomes too much- when balanced against the strive to function on a practical level. One day it was just as if life opened up and out poured forth its truth to me- ugly, unbelievable yet at the same time these truths were realities that i felt i already knew but had been displaced from, it was as if a veil was lifted and i was able to see beyond. Those who strive for the same experience of awakening and reclaiming your innate empowerment and sight, should do so under a pretense of mindfulness.

it is under that wisdom that i deliver this top 10 list, beginning here with the first truth: ( and many truths that unfold herein as waking TFU- is a process akin to peeling an onion…)

#1- #TOXINtruth: we are strategically, systematically, persistently being poisoned. 

we live in a toxic world. toxins come in many forms- spiritual, psychological, environmental, physical: for example in processed and synthetic foods that crowd the grocery store shelves to the toxic gossip and mainstream media magazines that line the checkout- filling your head with nonsensical distraction and useless information that serves no purpose other than to provide orchestrated worlds of digression and fabricated dramatics that act like a puppet show to divert your eyes from what’s really happening… the least of which what might be in those 10 items or less on the conveyor belt in front of you… toxins perpetuate the cycle of ultimate consumerism and keep the corporate machines rolling.. when i go shopping at any given grocery store there is quite literally less than 10 items in the entirety of any given major grocery chain that i would even consider putting in ( or on ) my body. This issue goes so deep and stretches so far and wide that like the rest of the items on this list- it deserves its own feature editorial piece, however just to skim the top; here’s a few of the worst toxic culprits we are faced with on a daily basis that keep the masses under the influence and in the system and functioning as is desired by those pulling the proverbial strings:

Fluoride is a blinding control mechanism: 

tap_water_fluoride_poisonThis one is super sick and a super slick ploy that is so fundamentally wrong in so many ways that there aren’t enough words really. For one: Fluoride has long been used in rodenticides and pesticides to kill pests like rats and insects. In terms of toxicity- it is more toxic than lead and slightly less so than arsenic. As a child in public school i recall the days when the school nurse would wheel in her cart full of tiny dixie cups filled to the brim with pink liquid. if i close my eyes and try, i can still taste how fucken disgusting this experience was- everyone in class hated this. no, in fact we dreaded it. the justification by the school system i believe, was something along the lines of ‘healthy oral hygiene’ when in fact- years later i came to understand that fluoride has a massive impact on both learning capacity and brain function, it in effect shuts down certain receptors that allow us to absorb and retain information… and what better a way to get this highly toxic substance into the masses, beginning at a pivotal age. The education systems are clearly in cahoots with ‘whomever’ – it is that is pulling the strings behind the so-called curtain.

Harvard review of brain studies involving the use of fluoride concluded that exposure to the substance causes damage to neurological development; meaning those whom had been exposed to fluoride over certain periods of time or whom lived in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQs than those in areas with lower levels.  ( Further, 15 percent of children in the high-fluoride city had signs of mental retardation) This research only adds to an ever-expanding number of studies on humans and animals demonstrating the damage inflicted on your brain by fluoride. Most notably- your pineal gland  (  or seat of the soul, spiritual antenna, intuition organ, gateway to the infinite etc. ) Which is the primary target of fluoride accumulation in the body. (  for those who aren’t aware the pineal is a wee gland located between the two hemispheres of the brain that regulates both melatonin and serotonin   ( which helps regulate mood, hormones and protects the body from free-radical damage ) and is responsible for awakening in humans, opening the third eye and becoming conscious. The molecule which opens us to spiritual experience, otherwise known as DMT ( a naturally occurring psychedelic responsible for conscious understanding ) is housed in the pineal gland. Studies also show that the pineal literally has every biological component required to be a functioning eye similar to the other two we use. The purpose of the pineal gland as a conscious awakening portal has been buried under centuries of toxic diversion and misinformation so much so that there are those who still do not know it even exists let alone what its purpose is. ( for proof on the Pineal gland click here: http://www.riseearth.com/2014/01/proof-that-pineal-gland-is-literally.html?m=1

Sodium Fluoride is not good for you period. Nevermind your teeth which are systematically destroyed by its effects- it collects heavy metals and binds to calcium and other minerals in the body causing calcification and degradation of not only the precious Pineal gland but all tissues, bones and pretty much every bodily system. The use of fluoride as a mechanism of control can be traced back to WW2 and The Nazi regime ( it’s true, google it. ) Some believe that the third reich evolved into what is now a fourth reich- which is the topic of the 2008 book by Jim Marrs) Fluoridization of drinking water is something that is banned in many countries, unfortunately in North American ‘governments etc.’ aptly use the tactic as a way to exert control on a massive, massive level. The effects of fluoride on the human system are of undeniable benefit to those seeking to dominate or control population on every level-  in short, it makes humans docile, subservient and unable to resist domination.

The FDA now requires warnings on all toothpaste containing fluoride, yet the brands are still touting its dental benefits with legitimizing claims made by dentists endorsing them. In China and India millions now suffer from crippling bone diseases from water contaminated from elevated levels of fluoride. ( Fluoride exposure disrupts the synthesis of collagen and leads to the breakdown of collagen in bone, tendon, muscle, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidney and trachea it has also been known to cause severe arthritis, development of bone cancer, depression of thyroid activity, impaired immune function, premature aging and at an overall is extremely hazardous to biological development, life span and general health- especially in children. ) So imagine a class of 40 of children if you will, in protest- swishing around this evil pink liquid for 45 seconds every week, spitting it back into a cup. Intense really. The young mind always knows, prior to our instincts being systematically snuffed out over time, our intuitions were open to receive and we knew when something was wrong…

“Fluoride causes more human cancer, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.”
– Dean Burk, Chief Chemist Emeritus, US National Cancer Institute

Another disturbing fact:  this craze in the 90’s started sweeping the nations, it was a plan carried out by a little drug company named BIG PHARMA Pfizer whom developed a little drug named Prozac. ( or ‘Fluoxetine’ ) A phenomenon swept the continent and doctors everywhere doled out countless scripts for this so-called miracle drug that could cure the masses of their ‘depression’ and various other psychiatric disorders…  what a genius invention this drug that would serve as a tool to create masses and masses of docile and subservient drugged up humans.

fourthreich“It is quite ironic that Prozac, which is 94 percent fluoride and given to hyperactive children, requires a prescription from a licensed physician while the same substance can be placed in our drinking water by dealers who have no medical training, no license to dispense medications, and no idea to whom they are administering this corrosive, toxic, and impairing substance.” 

— “The Rise of the Fourth Reich,” by Jim Marrs (HarperCollins, 2008, p. 193

So if this isn’t enough to promote awareness of what’s happening to you –   ( that’s right to you because you aren’t doing anything about it WTFU!…please.) I prescribe an  immediate fluoride detox program

I’ve spoken to individuals in person with whom i have shared this information only to meet a blank, dumb stare of disbelief and doubt- the sadness to me is that, that is the precise response an over-intake of fluoride elicits. They are perfect products of a calcified body and soul.

There are ways to detox yourself on an overall level + begin to de-calcify your pineal gland, ( side benefits being lowering your risk of cancer amongst a host of other diseases caused by this toxic evil) – strive for an alkaline diet- reducing acidity in the body will help your overall toxicity level and will begin the – process of opening your third eye  ( Detoxification and Activation of the third eye leads to vast, immeasurable improvement… an open third eye brings clarity, focus, concentration, intuition, decisiveness, lucid dreams, better sleep, clear energetic channels )  A closed third eye or in Sakskrit~ “Ajna Chakra” brings confusion, uncertainty, cynicism, pessimism, jealousy, envy and one-sided vision- similar to the effects of fluoridized self, yeah?

Protection:

Eliminate sources of fluoride from your diet. STOP using toothpaste. personally we use coconut oil to brush our teeth- in addition to cleansing it whitens and the process of ‘oil pulling’ has long been a trick used by those in the know. buy organic toothpaste @ the health food store, make sure its fluoride free obviously, but watch out for sodium laureth sulfates and other nasty chemicals trying to sneak in instead… Please do not take calcium supplements as calcium binds to fluoride in the body and will do the opposite of what you seek in essence. The reasons to stop sources of fluoride from infiltrating your existence are seeming endless but for those specifically interested in a detox of the pineal gland here are just a few of the supplements available will boost its function, aid in decalcification and at an overall nourish you on your journey to cultivating a thriving life:

1. Melatonin

– a plant-based, organic melatonin would be best. dose small, do not use for more than a few months. you can easily get these for a few bucks at most stores.

The pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin, ( associated with relaxation, visualization, and the circadian rhythms of the body )  purchasing melatonin supplements, make sure the products are plant-based and not animal tested.

2. Oregano Oil + Neem Extract

oregano oil has been making big business as a cure-all for cold, flu and viral symptoms for a while now. Neem is an ancient ayurvedic tonic  with countless benefits from skincare to antibiotic and antibacterial, it  has flown under the radar for the past hundred ++ years however in India is still revered  as a life-affirming tonic with benefits that are seeming limitless. Both oregano oil and neem extract aid in a purification process, assisting in the decalcification of the pineal as well as working on the  endocrine systems- and oregano whilst typically used in our western world to strengthen our immunity has super-powers the likes of which have few rivals.

3. Raw Cacao

Raw, organic theobroma in its native form is said to stimulate the third eye as well as detoxify the pineal gland. Side benefits of course include the dopamine rush that occurs post-choco-dulgence. Organic Traditions makes excellent cacao nibs + powders, rich with benefits beyond our immediate understanding.

3. Cannabis

as many know i have been touting the cancer-curing, life enhancing benefits of the cannabis plant for some time, having cured my own ‘cancer’ with a treatment regime of pure cannabis oil- i’ve been publishing an ongoing series following this experiment.  Among the plethora of benefits of this miracle plant,  Cannabis or more accurately (endo) Cannibinoids (The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) maintains our biological systems by regulating cell tissue-Using Omega 6 + arachidonic acid to make the fatty molecules that then act as communication systems that signal harm between the cells in our bodyboth treat and prevent cancer, reduce heart attacks by 66% and insulin dependent diabetes by 58%. Cannabis itself provides highly digestible globular protein, balanced in all Essential Amino Acids, providing the ideal balance ratio of omegas 6+9.  Low levels of essential fatty acids cause all manner of issues within our brains including causing our brains to age faster, contributing to the blinding of the pineal gland, issues with mood balance, impaired memory, cognitive function and dementia According to a study published in the February  2012, print issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

beware the sugar mafia: 

There is a slew of up and coming research on the deadly effects of sugar consumptionobviously we have been warned throughout our lives as to the dangers of indulging too much in this addictive substance- but that does not stop 90% of North Americans from gorging on the regular- According to Statistics Canada, the average Canadian consumes 26 teaspoons of sugar per day. That’s 40 kilograms per year —– or 20 bags!

Even while the emerging research shows childhood obesity at an all time high-  ( literally like  12.5 million children and adolescents in the U.S. alone ) and Drs and Scientists everywhere are warning about the potential pitfalls of a sugar-habit- seems peeps cannot avoid the thrill of the rush… which as it turns out is directly related to its addictive properties. A study was done at Princeton on this subject – its results found that mice who were continuously fed a choice between water and saccarin ( a nasty little sugar derivative/substitute) or cocaine- after getting a taste of sugar- those mice would return to the sugary straw over the coke straw every single time. The study also documented bingeing similar to that of a drug addict- rats eating large amounts of sugar when hungry, ( a phenomenon  described as ‘sugar-bingeing’ ) undergo neuro-chemical changes in the brain that appear to mimic those produced by substances of abuse, including cocaine, morphine, nicotine…” So in short: sugar triggers our pleasure centre to release dopamine – which starts the fast-track to addiction. ( suck on this: Sugar is actually just one atom away from the chemical makeup of cocaine. ie: sugar C12H22011 has 12 carbon / cocaine: C17H21N04. The only difference is the ‘N’ or nitrogen. )

A Dr from the University of California released then groundbreaking evidence to point to the severe toxicity of a substance that has an entire society-strung out. Robert H. Lustig, M.D. is Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at University of California, San Francisco, As a Childhood Obesity expert he says that sugar, which is made up of glucose and fructose molecules, is a poison because of the way our bodies break it down. To put a bit of perspective to it:  Typically people get most of their sugar in two main forms: table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup.

“When you metabolize fructose in excess, your liver has no choice but to turn that energy into liver fat and that liver fat causes all of the downstream metabolic diseases- such as Diabetes.”

The reality of this epidemic is frightening- there is little you could pick up in a grocery store that does not contain sugar or one of its synthetic derivatives… bread, sauce, packaged meals, crackers, cereal… whatever it is you will find sugar in one of its alias forms- that is almost a guarantee.

What is really needed is a sugar detox- and i recco. that on the journey to optimal wellness everyone undergo at least one detox a month- from sugar specifically. Speaking as someone who when working in the marketing world- as an account exec for Coca-Cola with a 12 diet coke ( yes literally 12! )  per day habit-  i totally get the grip the sugar-mafia puts on our lives.   i am a recovering aspartame junkie and i’ve been through the process of giving up and i know what it takes to let go of something our bodies and brains are begging for…

Protection: The best possible medicine is to reset your dopamine channels, seems like a difficult feat although it is quite easy if you commit to re-alignment. Post substance abuse of any kind our brains technically stop knowing how to release the feel good chemicals that instigate the bliss we all seek… however replacing one habit with another is often the easiest way for peeps to retrain themselves whilst in a detox from evils. Exercise on the regular is the best possible solution to re-instating your natural dopamine supply- yoga, meditation, running, whatever it is – grab a solid soundtrack and just go for it. Your body will be flooded with fresh energy in no time and there will be no 3pm sugar-crash to not look forward to.

ACT:

Keep this chart along with the others in your Nourished Warrior printed info-graphic arsenal- and pull it out whilst you are shopping for fuel- use it to cross reference the ingredients in the grocery store aisles and learn how to spot members of the sugar mafia hiding out in your goods. There are around 200 names for sugar shown here, however this is an ever-expanding mafia with new members being initiated all the time, so keep in mind that anything that looks ‘sugar free’ most likely is not.

WATCH: 

electromagnetic pollution/environmental toxins: chemtrails, heavy-metals, HAARP, ‘imbalanced’ individuals…

heavy metals: some whom have had a plethora of dental work, are wise to the realities of dental amalgam’s mercury content- entire generations walking ’round with a mouth full of deadly heavy metals is a pretty frightening notion, but not as frightening as some of the other ways we are exposed to substances such as – Arsenic, Asbestos, Benzene, Cadmium, Dioxin and dioxin-like substances, fluoride, Lead, Mercury along with Highly hazardous pesticides ( such as roundup for example ) all of which are listed by the World Health Organization as the most fearsome and toxic and ‘potentially’ harmful. These stable elements cannot be metabolized by the body and their bio-accumulative nature is the scariest piece- our bodies cannot remove these substances easily- and they build up to often fatal levels the longer we are exposed. Acute heavy metal intoxications can cause damaging oxidative free radical proliferation &  degenerative disease in the central nervous, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems, lungs, kidneys, liver, endocrine glands, and bones. Chronic heavy metal exposure has also been implicated in cancer, schitzophrenia, insanity, rage and a slew of other illnesses both physical and mental.

Ubiquitous in the environment and in our food sources- it’s incredibly difficult to avoid heavy metal toxicity especially when eating non-processed/synthetic foods ( synthetic foods have no resemblance molecular or otherwise to any living food group- therefore by nature or un-nature as it were – do not contain as many heavy metals as other foods. Those of us who adhere to strict vegan or organic diets ( because let’s face it raw foods are incredibly difficult to afford us a full diet given the availability and financial implications…) are often sometimes exposed to even more metals because of our choice to eat unprocessed or synthetic. Many toxic heavy metals act as molecular “mimics” of nutritionally essential trace elements; ( healthy homeopathic alternatives of aluminum or the like, for example ) and as a result, they compete with essential metallic cofactors for cell and enzyme function / dynamics. In short: they are evil imposters of otherwise vital nutrients and infiltrate the same parts of the body that the otherwise healthy nutritives do. ( an example of this is shown in the video below done by the Health Ranger, whom explains how the mimicing process works )

Protection:

one of the best things you can do to avoid knowingly exposing yourself, beyond the employment of a whole-food nutrition plan is to avoid flu shots ( which contain mercury and a slew of other nasty substances ) and avoid vaccinating your children. ( indeed the topic of vaccines deserves an entire section unto itself but i will leave it to those conscious seeker to explore this topic beyond the topline )

among the supplements that can reverse and heal the effects of heavy metal exposure :

Vitamin E: ( Through its antioxidant action, it mitigates some of the toxic damage caused by heavy metals )

Chlorella (a unicellular green algae with the ability to bind cadmium , zinc, copper, and lead: it has been used to detoxify wastewater of metal contaminants )

Pro-biotics ( some probiotic bacteria can minimize toxin exposure via trapping + metabolizing heavy metals)

Silicon or Silica / DE or Diatomaceous Earth ( which is over 90% silica, made up of teeny tiny diatoms )   a powerful overall body cleanser, regulator and balancer for its ability to eradicate even the stickiest toxins within our digestive systems. Silicon however, has been shown to antagonize the metabolism of aluminum, which could also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, and continuously support improved cognitive functioning )

Screen shot 2014-01-30 at 4.48.56 PMQuantum Pendant: this is something each of us in the Nourished Warrior tribe swear by and never remove. Quantum / Scalar energy has the capacity to awaken you on a much higher frequency in addition to its amazing detoxification and cleansing properties, They emit a healing frequency that works on a multitude of levels to neutralize electromagnetic pollution, block the evil EMF energies emitted by cell phones- which sap energy and add to free radical generation, Improve immune function (live bloodcell microscopy has shown red blood cell clumping is immediately reduced when a quantum pendant is placed next to the blood sample). and work to reduce inflammation in the body- ( one of our key warriors suffered chronic pain for years – the adornment of this pendant has assisted in achieving a 50% reduction in medication and an overall improvement in ongoing acute pain ) There has been a plethora of copycat products released in the last years- including ones that contain heavy metals vs. the lava rock composition that the originals contain. So keep an eye out for imposters. In addition there are also quantum bracelets available – as well as stickers for cell phones.

the engineering of our skies:

chemtrailsIf you are not familiar with what chemtrails are you might do well by yourself to stop what you are doing in this moment, take a step outside and if the sky is blue and the sun is shining have a look into the horizon for pillowy grey clouds or strange white lines… those while puffy lines that resemble an airplane’s trails, are in fact from a much scarier source. I’d implore you to do a bit of research on geo-engineering, weather modification, ‘atmospheric aerosol’, cloud-seeding, or  SRM: solar radiation management,  and its basis, fallout and the associated risks around the topic of chemtrails. A study done in the last few years by an activist organization tested earth and plant matter post-chemtrail sightings and found all manner of nasty toxins, heavy metals, and other substances that had fallen from the sky –   (  such as silver iodide– a hazardous, toxic pollutant which causes organ toxicity, skin rashes, anemia, weakness, weightloss, depression, skin discoloration among other things )   To be clear; these are not much more than biological weapons of mass destruction. According to several different geo-scientists the chemtrail program involves dropping or spraying residential and other areas with between 10 million and 20 million tonnes, yes TONNES- of chemical compounds containing barium, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum oxide, lead etc…  this program which is so sweetly titled ” project cloverleaf” is a super-secretive program in which many of the pilots whom are flying the planes actually have no idea of what it is they are dropping. Why, you ask? why would the government or anyone for that matter terrorize its people, poison its lands and effectively develop a biological weapon of mass destruction?

Consider the impact of the ability to control weather through spraying these toxins- rendering a weapon that could cause drought, famine…. destruction of land equals impotency and loss of independence for countries that are no longer able to grow and harvest crops. ( read:once this happens it allows foreign governments or any organization for that matter to impose domination in exchange for basic survival needs)
commodities are directly affected by weather and whomever controls the weather controls the masses. ( weather has been traded as a commodity @ Chicago Merchantile since 1997… ) In effect- this is one of the most dangerous, most shocking, most sociopathic and pathologically corrupt toxic truths happening in our world today.

last year when we attended the Total Health show we were party to a Documentary about- HAARP-

( for those of you who are not party to the realities of HAARP- it’s a pretty terrifying ongoing program run by the same peeps who are responsible for CHEMTRAILS… HAARP is short for The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) and is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, among other questionable cohorts. It’s a pretty scary proposition and while technically it is described: “  its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. “ at an overall the truth is more deeply disturbing, and for those brave enough to step into the know i would suggest checking out Nick’s documentary film ‘ Angels don’t play this HAARP’

Based on his best selling book, Dr. Nick Begich presents a compelling discussion of one of the important military advances of the United States government….digging even deeper into the truth behind HAARP will certainly lead you to a different view of the northern lights…check out: http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/haarp_index.htm

.. low frequency foes are everywhere. Those whom are shrouded in the darkness of negativity carrying their baggage and burdens -be it ego or anger or resentment or hate,  affect all those who come into their immediate radius and the only answer to meeting this energy is to work to bring forth your wisdom of balance- to balance it by embodying its opposite. Light, love, high-frequency happiness which is not within the realm of understanding for those ‘people’ whom are trapped in a low frequency state. I began a series about feng shuiing your universe, which  in essence, acts as an existential mastercleanse of sorts- with detailed insight into releasing your energetic, emotional and spiritual baggage, those burdens that box us up and keep us down. Vol 1. deals with ‘relationship feng shui’ and delivers a workable process to releasing that which no longer serves you= as applied to the connections, relationships and associations both with others and within.

Learning to: embody, empower and eradicate is the solution to many challenges in life. As related to the topic of poisonous people in our lives: the embodiment of our personal truth, our highest frequency happiness and our light coupled with the wisdom and knowing needed to banish that which creates blockage and burdens us ( physically, psychically, psychologically, spiritually, intellectually and energetically ) creates a powerful synthesis that can systematically destroy any ill will or low frequency foe that strives to depress your mojo. Granted there is so much toxic, lowfrequency shit that we cannot see – such as the aforementioned infiltration of our food and water system by toxic evils – but with consistent effort to cleanse ourselves of that which we are aware of, we are building an immunity, opening the door to manifesting, setting our intentions against toxic elements- and where attention goes, energy flows. Embrace your innate light, the seed of the divine that exists in every being. The infinite power of love that exists within our heartcentre and connects us to all that is- is your ultimate warrior’s weapon. Tend to the garden of your heart, allow the joy you have – no matter how small, how seeming insignificant given the magnitude of the evils that swirl round- to surround you with a force-field of protection that will lift you up and let you breathe clean conscious breaths…even whilst the air might be toxic.

Dr Nick’s film ‘ Angels don’t play that HAARP’:

hormones gone haywire:

unless you are a woman on the birth control pill,  over 45 on a hormone replacement regime, or going through hormonal treatment as a part of a cancer therapy, you may not think you are ingesting hormones on the regular- but let me tell you, man, woman, child, animal… we are all subject to the hormonal hysteria that is sweeping the world. Mainly the hormones in modern diets mostly derive from consumption of processed foods and dairy products, after Food inc. shed light onto the awful state of dairy farms in North America it’s pretty difficult to deny the notion that dairy products are causing all manner of evils to be seeded in our bodies- Processed foods of course contain a myriad of chemical compounds that result in an even greater myriad of health conditions over time, one of these being an exacerbation of hormonal imbalances on a fundamental level. Over 75% of American children under the age of 12 consume milk or milk products on a daily basis, consider that as you peruse the next tidbits of info here: Harvard news put out a study way back in 2006 discussing the dangers of hormones in milk and since then the issue has been either confirmed or adamantlydrugsindairycows denied by most mainstream media sources across the continent(s).  “The milk we drink today is quite unlike the milk our ancestors were drinking” –  Ganmaa Davaasambuu ( a physician with a Ph.D. in environmental health and a then Harvard Scientist. ). told the Harvard Gazette nearly 8 years ago  That is a whopping understatement in a world where nearly all of our food is genetically engineered – even down to the milk that machines brutally squeeze out of the bloody, pus-filled udders of abused dairy animals that are milked over 300 days per year- whilst pregnant and producing 33 times more hormones-  As such, The concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO) model of raising cows on factory farms churns out milk with dangerously high levels of estrone sulfate, an estrogen compound linked to testicular, prostate, and breast cancers.   Meanwhile, raw, grass-fed, organic milk from cows milked at the proper times is linked to improving digestion, healing autoimmune disorders, and boosting overall immunity, which can help prevent cancer. Though you will never hear any of this from the mainstream media, all milk is not the same — the way a cow is raised, when it is milked, and how its milk is handled and processed makes all the difference in whether or not the end product promotes health or death. – Said a 2012 Natural News article

The link between cancer and dietary hormones – is a topic that has blown up in the last decade and for good reason. Natural estrogens (- on the whole Dairy accounts for 60-80% of estrogen consumed. ) are up to 100,00X more potent than their environmental counterparts ( such as the estrogen-like compounds found in pesticides – Non-organic foods sprayed with chemical pesticides/fertilizer accumulate large amounts of xeno-or artificial estrogens.

Hormonal imbalance is caused from a variety of issues from dairy consumption to improper diet to contraception, and in effect it causes all manner of symptoms from chronic pain and lethargy to obesity are reason enough to reconsider what it is you are putting into your body- but its the term ‘cancer’  that seems to get people to perk up and pay attention – so from a statistical standpoint, the data doesn’t lie ( although it does change rather rapidly ) One study done in the last 10 years compared diet and cancer rates in 42 countries. Its findings revealed that milk and cheese consumption are strongly correlated to the incidence of testicular cancer among men ages 20-39  In the past 50 years in Japan dairy consumption has been rising- as is the prostate cancer death rate which has gone from zero per 100,000 to 7 per 100,000. Part of the reason why this devastating rise in dairy-related-death has become what seems an unavoidable fate for those who are on the milk-bandwagon is that the US government continuously provides incentives to Farmers who use this detrimental CAFO model of raising cows, perpetuating the belief that all milk is the same- in 2012 a bill was passed that incentivized confined factory farming that forced cows to eat GMO feed, which on top of the abuse-derived, hormone-riddled milk that’s being produced- would see the animals become even sicker. for more info: http://www.anh-usa.org/healthy-milk-what-is-it/

A wise alternative option to dairy is almond milk, coconut milk, homemade or storebought ( without added synthetics such as carageenan- ) if its cheese you are addicted to, try either making a nut-based vegan option, cashew is great or if you absolutely need your cheese- there is a Cypriot cheese called Haloumi which is typically made from sheep and goats milk and is undeniably delicious.

the other hormonal source that is seeing women all over North America become not only imbalanced  but suffering from a slew of severe side effects and ever- increasing health conditions including mood disorders and infertility is chronic use of the birth control pill. Many women are put on the pill at a very young age as a way to manage menstrual symptoms or as a contraceptive. You may not live in constant fear of becoming pregnant ( unless you forget a pill ) but what you definitely are doing is altering your entire internal chemistry. Which can result in unexpected and difficult to treat issues such as inability to breastfeed, decreased libido and a host of other symptoms. Luckily, There are natural birth control methods which have been providing salvation to those whom have been on the Birth Control pill bandwagon for years and have had enough of the ride, this is giving rise to a movement led by Holistic Fertility Specialists around North America- In Canada The Red Tent Sisters- who promote fertility awareness and natural alternatives to traditional methods, have been helping women achieve happy hormones and eco-friendly orgasms for over 10 years. Take a look @ the video ‘ Five Fabulous Reasons to Ditch the Pill & Reclaim Your Health, Happiness, & Future Fertility’  a plethora of wisdom on Women’s Fertility as effected by the Birth Control Pill and how to replace that life-altering substance with a more holistic method that will nourish your thriving.

 Pesticides, Fertilizers and GMOS:

Herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers such as the infamous  ’roundup’ are still wreaking havoc on all life from the soil to the bees to livestock to human… most of today’s industrial farming practices have ties to one singular organization and the main culprit of course is Monsanto. There are countless websites, activist groups, documentary films and organizations in protest of this gigantic terrorist organization- however with its stronghold on America’s industry it is difficult to avoid buying into their plots. We published a piece that included a DO NOT BUY infographic, (see below)   listing Monsanto owned companies, for use in your arsenal- though bare in mind this list is ever-expanding and each company on this list is continuously striving to buy out the competition, a tactic that has even spread to the organic sector- you can find the Corporate-owned Organic infographic here:  GMOS is a topic which i have discussed previously, and whilst i am certainly not interested in repeating myself ( although there is definitive value in repetition if you consider mantras, affirmations etc. ) … the GMO-train keeps rolling on at warp speed bound and those on it are bound to see wreckage if they don’t hop the track. If you have not seen the GMO-fed Pig Stomach images,  see below… nor watched the Genetic Roulette film by Jeffery Smith or the films such as Food Inc. that address the dangers surrounding both chemical-crops and GMOs- you are in for a shocker if still buying traditional foods.

the initial ‘Clean Eating’ article i posted is here: https://thenourishedwarrior.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/nourished-warrior-wellness-clean-eating/

however here is a brief recap: The effect that GMOs have on the human body are still being discovered on daily basis, but what we do know is that consumption of genetically engineered food leads to the following: 

Top 10 illnesses caused by GMO’s

1- depression and anxiety- this one is huge.

2- Alzheimers

3- Diabetes

4- Cancer

5- Parkinson’s Disease

6- Gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, Crohn’s disease, ulcers, Leaky Gut syndrome and a host of other nastiness

7- Killing off of Bee Colonies- bees are absolutely essential for human survival on this planet

8- increase in severe food allergies

9- becoming anti-biotic resistant and all around increased toxicity to boot

10- this list could go on forever really, as each day something new about the harmful, horrific effects of this disgusting mutant creation is discovered. A simple google will affirm everything that i have listed here and teach you a wide variety of other horrifying information that is sure to keep you up at night.

if you need any further evidence, ( because perhaps you haven’t yet watched the genetic roulette film-)  have a look at this:

this is a Pig Stomach- used for research purposes to show the effects of a stomach that has been fed a GMO diet.

Results show a 267% increase in severe stomach inflammation compared to those fed non-GMO diets

For those who are not abreast on the realities of food in North America, It goes far beyond GMOS- and so in your case, reality requires some serious confrontation… First before even considering what plan of avoidance you will artfully execute- force yourself to come face to face with the truths about our failing food system; for more information on all things FDA, Big-pharma, Industrialized Food etc. please visit any of the following links to educate yourself further:

top 3 tips for avoiding GMO foods:

1- buy certified organic. By law organics cannot contain GMO’s ( though questionable in the US- ecocert and Canadian Organic certifications are a safe bet.

2. Look for non-GMO labels, while the petition to have GMO’s labelled has been ongoing for years now, many brands have adopted their own practice of choosing to label their foods non-GMO for the safety and concern of the consumer. ( note: currently there are NO laws in place stating that companies that produce products made with GMO’s must label their products accordingly- a rather terrifying proposition but a seriously fucked up reality. Please do your research. Buy wise. because evil giant Monsanto will never allow the people to win the battle to label GMO foods- there are a slew of brands, more and more each day who are doing the right thing by labelling their products GMO-free. 

<—this is what you should be looking for on anything you buy; if it does not have this seal, and it is not organic – i don’t buy it.

3- avoid any at-risk ingredients, the top culprits being: corn, soy, canola, cottonseed and sugar ( sugar in itself is a sick plague on humanity with its own laundry list of offenses )

Your best bet? First, watch the genetic roulette film, get educated- and secondly print the list i have created here, and avoid buying ANY product that is GMO.

11- PlusA stunning new research study identifies exactly what makes GMO foods dangerous, along with just how GMO foods causes depression anxiety and other serious health conditions such as autism, obesity, Parkinson’s, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and more.

Obviously the aforementioned is only just a glimpse into the vast array of toxins we are exposed to, albeit within those few is a vile landscape of endless proportion and enough to instigate action in those willing to embody and live within the truth. This is only number one in a list of the 10 truths and already we have covered a landscape of challenges facing modern day warriors in the battle to ascend. The distorted version of reality that we are living in is a programmed falsity that is oppressing us often without our direct knowledge. I will not speak to the intentions of those who are behind this programming nor will i divulge any name, label or entity responsible – but in effect it is a deeply intricate matrix of interconnected efforts to repress what we already know, what is encoded in our DNA as humans, what we have been put on this earth to do may very well be to reignite the wisdom within, to power forth through endless obstacles, and in the battle for our lives we need armor, the greatest weapon that an individual can have- is a conscious understanding of its opponent in the ever-changing war for our freedom. I bow to those who are out there sharing this wisdom and empowerment, striving to unleash humanity from the grips of toxic truths and repressive wills of ‘others’ whom come not from a place of light and love but from a darkness with calculated aim.

All said thus far-

your best bet is to get educated in the art of avoidance.

our best defense and our only hope of salvation really given the state of reality in the world we live in is to in essence- crack our genetic code and reclaim our divine understanding, our birthright – which is a default state of unity, thriving and empowerment; is to learn to be mindful in our lives. Not only mindful in the sense of being present for each moment of our lives- but mindful in our consumption, mindful in our actions, and mindful of our wellness. Love your temple, ignorance is not bliss. The luckiest woman on earth is one whom knows herself, embraces the truth of herself wholeheartedly, embodies gratitude for the earth and with beloved appreciation of the interconnectedness of all things, strives to walk the path in loving, artful reverence. Evolution follows a path of release and cleansing, the cycle of creation follows destruction and after we learn to wield our own light- we have the capacity to challenge the darkness…

with blessings and love,
