HOW YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS IS THE KEY TO IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH AND CHANGING YOUR LIFE

by Dr. Mercola, Guest Waking Times In this interview, Mike Dow, Psy.D., and author of “Your Subconscious Brain Can Change Your Life: Overcome Obstacles, Heal Your Body, and Reach Any Goal with a Revolutionary Technique,” reveals how tapping into your subconscious through a modern form of hypnosis can help you heal mind, body and soul. “Most meditation is alpha. Hypnosis takes you into an even slower brain wave, into theta,” Dow says, who experienced his first hypnosis session as a “deep, wondrous trance, almost dream-like.” “I would say it felt magical, relaxing and wonderful. I sort of would have those twitches … Continue reading HOW YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS IS THE KEY TO IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH AND CHANGING YOUR LIFE

5 WEIRD QUESTIONS TO PUT YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE INTO PERSPECTIVE

by Gary Z McGee, Staff Writer Waking Times “Today’s society bestows rewards as never before for those who are comfortable with change, and it may punish those who are not, for what used to be the safe terrain of stability is now often a dangerous minefield of stagnation.” Leonard Mlodinow Let’s get weird. Sometimes it takes a little shock value to shake us out of our stuck-in-a-rut-ness, our unimaginative daily doldrums, our all-too-comfortable comfort zones. Art can have this cathartic effect. Specifically, the art of questioning. Such questioning plants seeds of imagination into the dry earth of our purposelessness. It’s only through attention, … Continue reading 5 WEIRD QUESTIONS TO PUT YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE INTO PERSPECTIVE

THE SHAMANIC PERSPECTIVE ON AI AND TRANSHUMANISM

by Sergey Baranov, Contributor Waking Times In my recent book, The Mescaline Confessions, I wrote a chapter about a stark vision I one day received from the Huachuma cactus, warning of a future in which our own technology will devour us. Huachuma, also known as San Pedro, is a sacred cactus native to the Andes which is shamanically used in Peru and has been for thousands of years. Its active ingredient is the alkaloid mescaline, which was made known to the world by Aldous Huxley in his book The Doors of Perception. Technology, the cactus told me, is not our God – it is our servant. Technology itself … Continue reading THE SHAMANIC PERSPECTIVE ON AI AND TRANSHUMANISM

9 weird and terrifying monsters from Japanese mythology

From animated umbrellas to polite-but-violent turtle-people, Japan’s folklore contains some extremely creative monsters. by Matt Davis Compared to Japan’s menagerie of creatures, Western folklore can feel a little drab. The collection of yōkai—supernatural beasts or spirits—has a staggering amount of variety. Although there are many more creative folkloric creatures, here are nine that caught our attention. Like any culture, Japan has its fair share of folkloric creatures. But to Westerners, whose folklore tends to recycle the same variations on witches, goblins, orcs, and dragons, Japan’s bestiary of creatures can be staggeringly varied. Out of the hundreds of yōkai—or supernatural beings—here’s just nine … Continue reading 9 weird and terrifying monsters from Japanese mythology

HOW TO LEVERAGE YOUR OWN CONSCIENCE AS PURE LAW

Gary Z McGee, Staff Writer Waking Times “Highly evolved people have their own conscience as pure law.” ~Lao Tzu If we heed these wise words by Lao Tzu, then it stands to reason that we focus more on developing highly evolved people capable of honoring universal laws, rather than waste our energy bludgeoning people with invalid laws that violate the golden rule, the nonaggression principle, and the universal laws that dictate health. But what constitutes a highly evolved person? What might a highly evolved person’s character look like? How do we define such a broad concept? In Five Counterintuitive Traits of Highly Evolved Humans, I … Continue reading HOW TO LEVERAGE YOUR OWN CONSCIENCE AS PURE LAW

DEATH AND DYING FROM A SHAMANIC PERSPECTIVE

by Jan Engels-Smith, Guest Waking Times  “Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by its breathtaking moments.” -Michael Vance In shamanism, the belief that there is no death is a concept grounded in the belief of the soul existing in a never-ending process of regeneration. Our soul remembers our ancient past, engages with our current environment, and knows our future lives. We live forever and our soul is immortal. Our existence, however, is marked by numerous transitions—both between our many lives and sometimes even within the frame of what we view as the current physical life. Emotionally and spiritually, … Continue reading DEATH AND DYING FROM A SHAMANIC PERSPECTIVE

UNICEF – INSIDE THE SATANIC, OCCULT THEMED FUNDRAISER OF THE WORLD’S LEADING CHILDREN’S CHARITY

Buck Rogers, Staff Writer Waking Times UNICEF, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund was originally set up to provide emergency food, shelter and support to children in countries that were devastated by World War II. Fast forward to today, and the organization has apparently become yet another elitist bastion of occult worship and satanic symbolism, and somehow the public doesn’t seem to notice or care. Each year the organization hosts a masquerade ball fundraising event at Clifton’s in Los Angeles, and the event in 2018 was disturbingly loaded with Illuminati and occult symbolism. Why is a children’s charity participating in the culture of elite occultism … Continue reading UNICEF – INSIDE THE SATANIC, OCCULT THEMED FUNDRAISER OF THE WORLD’S LEADING CHILDREN’S CHARITY
