Current Energies: You Are A Wayshower

15/02/2020

Who you are today is a manifestation of the social arrangements you were accidentally and randomly born into?

I believe we are a species with amnesia, I think we have forgotten our roots and our origins. I think we are quite lost in many ways. And we live in a society that invests huge amounts of money and vast quantities of energy in ensuring that we all stay lost. A society that invests in creating unconsciousness, which invests in keeping people asleep so that we are just passive consumers of products and not really asking any of the questions.

You cannot be vulnerable

All I was thinking; the anxious looping has been so off it would seem. Now my intuition is returning.
It was not sex that I feared but this lack of willingness to be intimate in that way coming from you.

You who were so sexually expressive; now you hide away from me. You will do anything but engage me physically now. You are more attentive than ever to my needs, to accommodate me in all aspects except touch.

This could appear to be a new cruelty, unexpected even from you, I will not beg for it though. I know you now much better. You don't contemplate this yourself.

I see that you are terrified of this work that has begun after those sex-filled days, allowing me so close has changed you and now you dare not go down that path again.

You love me and are attracted to me more than ever but you fear me; you fear the love and the intimacy. This is a sign of deeper affection from you.

I miss your touch now more than ever, I am starved towards insecurity by your sudden coldness even as you work and pay for me, shop and cook for me. Smile and play but no sex, no deeper bonding for that would mean casting off your armor and you cannot be vulnerable.

Chaga mushroom: This unusual tree fungus is a medicinal powerhouse

Chaga mushroom: This unusual tree fungus is a medicinal powerhouse

How Chaga Helps Support a Vibrant Immune System

You probably already know that the primary means by which the human body avoids disease is through the immune system, a complex network of organs, cells, and proteins that actively wards off foreign invaders. Without an immune system, our bodies would quickly succumb to harmful pathogens like bacteria, viruses, parasites, and malignant fungi, leading to serious illness and eventually death.2 This is why it's critically important to support the immune system with immunomodulatory nutrition like the kind found in Chaga.

A natural Biological Response Modifier (BRM), Chaga mushroom is rich in a class of polysaccharides known as Beta-D-Glucans that help to balance the body's immune system response, boosting or slowing it as needed for optimal function.

Chaga also possesses key nutrient compounds that give it the ability to activate an array of immune cells, including lymphocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. These cells allow the body to suppress the formation of chronic health conditions like autoimmune disease, allergies, and cancer.

New therapeutic opportunities from an ancient herb: the benefits of CBD oil

New therapeutic opportunities from an ancient herb: A detailed list of the benefits of CBD oil

The non-psychoactive part of the cannabis plant is actually one of the most beneficial health supplements to become available to the masses in recent history. We're talking about CBD oil, or cannabidiol oil, which is an extract from the hemp plant containing a cannabinoid that research has found to have an wide array of health benefits. In fact, it has been proven to be so effective with certain health issues that some have been touting it as a miracle in oil form. This oil can be safely consumed by both children and adults as part of a daily diet.

Based on the scientific research done on CBD, we have put together a very comprehensive and detailed list of the amazing benefits of using CBD oil as a daily supplement.

What Exactly is CBD Oil?

There are over 500 compounds in the cannabis plant, around 100 are cannabinoids and over 125 are terpenes (fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity). Many of these chemicals have been discovered to have some sort of therapeutic value. One of those 100+ cannabinoids is cannabidiol. Interestingly, our bodies have cannabinoid receptors all over. Until recently, the only cannabinoid most people had heard about was tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound found in the flowers of the cannabis plant. Although THC can be found in very high concentrations in this very well-known plant, so is CBD, which is non-psychoactive (it doesn't get you high). In the plant, CBD is a precursor and CBN a metabolite of THC. As cannabis gets older, THC gradually breaks down to CBN.

Things are only going to get weirder

Caitlin Johnstone: Things are only going to get weirder

When you're talking about a species that has been consistently patterned towards its own destruction, though, a disruption of patterns is a good thing. Our ecocidal, warmongering tendencies have brought us to a point that now has us staring down the barrel of our own extinction, and that is where we are surely headed if we continue patterning along the behavioral trajectory that we have been on. Only a drastic change of patterns can change that trajectory. And we are seeing a change of patterns.

Lion's Mane Mushroom proven to reduce anxiety and depression

Lion's Mane Mushroom proven to reduce anxiety and depression

Lion's mane mushroom is a medicinal food with many benefits that has been used for centuries and has now been shown to be an effective natural depression and anxiety treatment.

A placebo-controlled human clinical study took 30 female patients to investigate the effects of lion's mane on menopause, depression, sleep quality and anxiety.

Of those who finished the study, 14 took a placebo and 12 took lion's mane mushroom extract that was baked into cookies. Two grams of lion's mane mushroom per day were consumed and after four weeks of use, a reduction in depression and anxiety were reported by the lions mane mushroom group.

This study gives rise to the growing belief among scientists that depression and anxiety has less to do with the "serotonin hypothesis" and possibly more to do with the "neurogenic theory of depression and anxiety."

In essence, higher rates of neurogenesis could prove to equal higher rates of happiness.

Lion's mane mushroom is often used as a food and supplement to support brain health, memory, focus, clarity and recall. It does so by helping the brain produce a compound called Nerve Growth Factor, or NGF for short. As a protein, Nerve Growth Factor helps to repair damaged neurons and even create new neurons!
