Research in the fields of anthropology, plant biology, mythology and human experience, and on the brain itself, suggests that we could be living in a very different and profoundly preferable state of consciousness to the one we have considered normal. The way we eat and our hormonal balance have a huge impact on how we feel, experience life and behave. Through regenerative nutrition, we can all significantly, swiftly and sustainably improve our brain and body chemistry, enhance our energy, effectiveness, mental acuity, intuition, creative powers, harmonious connection, joy, happiness and sheer pleasure of existence and attain substantially more success in our chosen paths. Ultimately we have the potential as humans to ongoingly experience a sense of well-being now usually associated with peak states, in a benign state of perpetual wonder and awe, in ecstatic connection with the natural world.


Holly Paige is passionate about our potential as humans to move into a much happier and more functional state of consciousness. She has spent many years investigating human origins and the lifestyle practices that generate a deep sense of well-being and fulfilment for humans.

Five steps to jump timelines




Five steps to change timelines using your sovereign will and capacity to feel:

Identify timeline
Shift vibrational state to match the timeline
Lock in state so it does not waver
Take action that is an expression of the new timeline
Persevere and hold and act from the vibrational state even in the face of contrary sensory information

“The manifesting of a new timeline into your three dimensional reality requires accumulated energy. If you persist in holding the vision of the new timeline with the vibrational field or feeling of it with gratitude for it already existing you will accumulate energy. The task is to be true to your vision  while paying attention to what the current reality is showing you. It is not about pretending. It is about facing reality as it presents itself to you while simultaneously holding a higher vision, in other words you deal with the reality of your life while simultaneously holding a vision of a different life”

Free Excerpt and Recipes from Food for Consciousness Book


I am very excited to announce that my book Food for Consciousness that I have been working on so long is nearing release. It was inspired at the time when I began eating mainly raw foods and experienced a massive shift in my experience of life. Intrigued I was determined to find out what causes this so called 'raw high',
I did find the answers and a lot more and a decade and a half later I present a book with well over 100 recipes plus a look at what has happened to humans over millennia since we left our original biological habitat. All the recipes are delicious and easy to make and all based on the foods that we as humans are designed to eat, foods that regenerate our neural system and help us reach our maximum potential. There's a lot more in addition to nutrition and recipes I look at the way we use our minds as well as how we feed them.
You can read a free excerpt from it and see my reset blended recipes, all delicious including the famous chocolate pudding recipe based on
 Wright's optimal neural nutrition breakfast. Please give your feedback and comments. The full version will be online soon and you have the opportunity ti get involved in an online community, with access to videos, answers to questions and support on your journey of this nature.

This is the link

This is a piece I wrote recently I hope you enjoy!




The term Edenic States evokes images of the Garden of Eden, an Earthly Paradise where humans lived in their original innocent state free of the concerns that bedevil us in current times.

Science and mythology both describe a similar sequence of events. Science tells us of the shrinking human brain and increasing hormonal damage to the left cerebral hemisphere. Mythology. Mythology tells of a Golden Age followed by eras of decline right down to the current age of degeneration.
At this time, we have the knowledge in our grasp to regenerate our neural systems and access latent abilities. It seems the root of the problem is that moving from our natural biological habitat, the tropical forests, millennia ago, changed what we ate and therefore our internal biochemistry. This changed the way our DNA is read and therefore the construction of our neural and endocrine systems,.

Eating the complex nutrition we are designed to plus plant medicines and various practices can help short medium and long term. Eating a diet rich in the materials are neural system is designed to be built from for example undamaged fatty acids, amino acids and fruit compounds can have rapid effects on mood. In the medium term it rebuilds and helps us access more right hemisphere function. Long term, alongside other measures it can change the way DNA is read to be more in alignment with our natural DNA blueprint giving us abilities that today would be considered extraordinary. Potentially as humans we have the capacity to live in an ongoing benign state of sublime wonder and awe, in cognitive ecstasy.

This is the basis of Food for Consciousness. In the bookI describe practical measures we can take including nutrition and many recipes to move towards Edenic States of Consciousness.

Constellational myths with John Lash



This fascinating talk by John  Lash in London in 1996 is about real sky astrology and the mythological language of the starry constellations in the sky.

"In this rare footage of the great heretic John Lamb Lash, he gives a lecture on Stellar Mythology. He explains from a Comparative Mythologist and naked eye astronomer's view the real sky constellations, and their connection to humanity's history and pre-historic monuments. The monuments and myths go together, they are coded - he is the ultimate decoder and dot connector."

"It’s a hurtful kind of comfort that the dominant culture. is in some kind of beginning stage of terminal swoon...it's hard to tell the difference between that and dancing going on... there’s no turning back from it...all that we need of you is that you be human... what has to die is your refusal to die..you're not supposed to feel punishment you're supposed to feel more...that's the invitation"

D H Lawrence


A trip to the town where I grew up, Nottingham, to see my parents, I took time to visit Eastwood the birthplace of D H Lawrence.  D H Lawrence was an inspirational writer of reflections on humanity, born 1885 and grew up in Eastwood, near Nottingham, travelled to and lived in France, Italy and Mexico.



And watch it putting forth each time to heaven,
Each time straight to heaven,
With marvellous naked assurance each single twig,
Each one setting off straight to the sky
As if it were the leader, the main-stem, the forerunner,
Intent to hold the candle of the sun upon its socket-tip,
It alone.

Every young twig
No sooner issued sideways from the thigh of his predecessor
Than off he starts without a qualm
To hold the one and only lighted candle of the sun in his
    socket-tip.
He casually gives birth to another young bud from his thigh,
Which at once sets off to be the one and only,
And hold the lighted candle of the sun.

Bare Fig-Trees D H Lawrence

The fig is a very secretive fruit.
As you see it standing growing, you feel at once it is symbolic :
And it seems male.
But when you come to know it better, you agree with the Romans, it is female.

Figs, D H Lawrence

Plant Spirit Medicine Class


Meet Your Plant Spirit Ally and Enter the Dreamsong of Gaia
With Gwyneth Robbins

We are only a fraction of what we could be as human beings.  When we fully open up our heart, mind and souls to the green-beings of the Earth, we enter into another dimension.  There’s so much we can learn about ourselves and our soul journey from the plants and trees.
I’m offering you the opportunity to take part in this class and find your plant spirit ally, moving into a deep state of re-connection, taking up your rightful place within Nature.  This is a soul healing journey that is deeply life-changing.  A unique personal experience.

This class is a whole day as part of our Three day initiation Retreat in Wales this September.  I’m also offering this as a stand alone class.  It will be a long day, from 10am until 6pm and you will need to be equipped for ‘weather’, as you’ll be outside some of the time, even if its raining.  You’ll also need to bring a wooden bead or other small human crafted organic offering for your plant.  You also need to come with an open heart and respect for the green-beings.

http://mycrystalguru.com/edenic-states-retreats/plant-spirit-medicine-class/.

This unique class will:

Deeply realign your energies to the natural world
Help you be more decisive and clear about your own pathway on Earth
Can help to heal deep hidden trauma spontaneously and supportively
Give you a sense of balance on all levels of your being.
Keep you grounded, earthed and able to manifest your dreams.
Find a plant spirit ally for life, which can always be called upon when needed.
The exact location of this class in Wales is a mystery and will take place on Saturday 17th September 2016 but will be in a beautiful location in the South – full details will be revealed on booking!

We are designed to live in symbiosis with plants. Even our DNA is read to it's full potential in a biochemical mix of complex plant phytochemistry along with our own hormones. These and more mysteries revealed at our September retreat of which this stand alone class is a part.

Alternative View of Nutrition


“AV7 was the most eclectic Alternative View event to date; bringing together Campaigners, Activists, Spiritual Warriors and people who have simply had enough of a Governmental system which evidently does NOT have Humanity’s best interests as heart!  The speakers and the audience represented almost every demographic imaginable. People from all parts of the social spectrum, almost every political persuasion and varying religious and philosophical viewpoints came together at AV7, united in their knowledge that ‘Something isn’t right’ … that Humanity (the collective ‘WE’) have an enormous challenge ahead. ”

ABOUT AV7

ABOUT NEUROACTIVE FOOD

What is ‘food’ ? Is it inert building blocks or an intricate array of complex biochemical components that interact with our own neurochemistry to affect our thoughts feelings and actions. Putting aside what we have been told, what is the natural biological diet of our species?
We look, in a very practical way, at how we can eat and use herbs to regenerate and optimise our incredible neural equipment. We also see how this can empower us into a state of awareness where we can not only see the nature of the problems that confront us but can also clarify and focus on the solutions.
We explore how our synergetic connection with trees and plants through fruit and herbs widens our intelligence and kickstarts the pineal gland into pumping it’s own biochemicals of perception. There are particular plant species which reset our neurotransmitters and receptors thus clearing lifelong and ancestral trauma. We look at how changing our biochemistry can change the stories we live and we ask how we know what is the true story of our individual destinies.
Science and mythology tell the same story. We are designed to live in states where we feel alive and free and we now know the steps to get into them.

Ibogaine for Parkinsons



At The 2016 Global Ibogaine Conference:
 “Phytostan Pharmaceuticals, Genesis Ibogaine Center, Nutra Lab Canada Ltd.,   Patient ‘D’ and CKBR-12 have conducted the first  treatment anywhere of a Parkinson’s Patient with an Ibogaine Derivative Medication. The results are astounding.”

“both ibogaine and its metabolite noribogaine have been shown to lead to an increase in levels of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) in the brain. It has also been shown to have neuroprotective qualities promoting the survival of both dopaminergic and motor neurons.
In other research, neurotrophic factors, specifically GDNF, have been shown to cause sprouting of dopaminergic fibers, with a resulting improvement of clinical symptoms of Parkinson’s in experimental animal models and humans”

neurogenesis




Neurogenesis by Brant Cortright is a groundbreaking book. We have been teaching this way of eating and living for years and know it works.To have it spelled out by a eminent psychologist complete with scientific references is a great gift to the world. Highly recommended reading!

Neurogenesis is about what we can do to keep our brain cells growing and so achieve
higher cognitive function, better memory and learning, emotional vitality and resilience, protection from stress anxiety and depression, elevated immunity and enhanced overall brain function. Nutrition, good sleep, music and the quiet of nature aerobic exercise, emotional and cognitive stimulation all make a difference especially together. Nutritional recommendations are to eats lots of fresh, fruit and vegetables, minimise other carbohydrates and add healthy fats fish oil. “Omega 3’s have been shown to be as or more effective than prescription SSRI antidepressant medication in treating depression”. 

There is a list of foods and nutritional components to increase neurogenesis:
green tea
turmeric
blueberries
whole soy
ginseng ginkgo
quercetin
vitamin E
piperine (pepper)
DHEA and pregnenolene
tryptophan and 5 HTP
rhodiola
melatonin
mulberry
red sage
lithium
goji berry

Bodhisattva


"The Bodhisattva…does not abandon life. Turning his regard from the inner sphere of thought transcending truth…outward again to the phenomenal world, he perceives without the same ocean of being that he found within… And he is filled with compassion for the self-terrorised beings, who live in fright of their own nightmare." Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces

The hero








“The hero, therefore, is the man or woman who has been able to battle past his personal and local historical limitations to the generally valid, normally human forms.” Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

John Trudell ~ extremely eloquent therefore extremely dangerous



"Apocalyptic propaganda is the basis of western religion. It's a control mechanism by instilling fear. You instill the fear so people won't think clearly. Everything is there to disrupt the creative intelligence so it doesn't flow with clarity and coherence. So fearing the apocalyptic is just a mining tool they've been using since they came up with the concept of the male dominator god. But what I will say about this thing they call the Mayan calendar is it ends in 2012 because they ran out of stone. Look at it, there was no more room. Basically all the apocalyptic stuff is based on Christian interpretation of reality. Of course, apocalyptic propaganda is used to keep people off balance, to keep them from thinking clearly. It's a mining tool. " JohnTrudell

Aloe makes for younger skin

Aloe vera in my garden
As far as I understand it, wrinklees ar a kind of scar tissue and aloe gel, especially fresh straight from the leaves has an almost magical effect on damaged skin and wounds. Aloe vera also contains valuable monatomic elements which improve neural function.

"According to scientists with the Department of Dermatology of the Seoul National University Boramae Hospital in Seoul Korea, taking a small amount of aloe vera gel on a daily basis can significantly improve skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles.
Their research took thirty women over the age of 45, giving one group a small dose of 1,200 mg of aloe gel per day, and the other group 3,600 mg of aloe gel per day. The women’s baseline status was used as a control and their wrinkles and elasticity were measured before and after a 90 days period of supplementation.
The results of the research weren’t only promising, they were pretty remarkable. All of the women experienced a decrease in wrinkles, with the women in the lower-dose group also seeing improvements in facial elasticity. All women also saw an increase in collagen production."

Don't throw away your avocado seeds




The secret benefits of avocado seeds will surprise you. Historically, extracts of avocado seeds were used as ink for writing and as a food dye. A single avocado seed represents around 18% of the fruit and a waste issue for avocado processors.

Over 70% of the total antioxidant capacity of avocados is found within the seed.
Pennsylvania State University recently launched a study on the benefits of avocado seeds and found that the phenolic antioxidant compounds in the seeds may lower high cholesterol, high blood pressure, reduce inflammatory conditions, diabetes, and boost your immunity. The seeds even have insecticidal, fungicidal, and anti-microbial properties.
“Any heart disease patient must eat the avocado including the seed.” – Dr. Tom Wu Dr. Wu has earned the “Remarkable Contribution” award from the American Cancer Society and the “World Famous Doctor” award from the United Nations for his breakthroughs with diabetes and cancer.

Inflammation is the culprit behind numerous chronic diseases: arthritis, heart disease, stroke all have been linked to excessive inflammation within the body.

Avocado seeds and skins contain higher levels of antioxidants such as catechins (also found in green tea) and procyandins that act as anti-inflammatories, reduce pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of joint function. These two antioxidants also improve heart health and blood circulation.

In ancient South America avocado seeds were used to treat dysentery, gastric ulcers, and other digestive issues.
Your digestive system is essential to your overall health. Much of your immunity comes directly from the bacteria that live inside of your digestive tract. If these beneficial gut flora are living in a healthy environment, then they can do easily combat pathogenic bacteria and viruses.
The antioxidants and fiber found in avocado seeds are great for your digestive system. An avocado seed contains more soluble fiber per ounce than almost any other vegetable; your GI tract will thank you for adding avocado seeds to your daily diet and perform at its prime.

The University of Antioquia, in Medellin, Colombia in November of 2013 found that extract of avocado seed and the fruit (Hass variety) had a pro-apoptotic effect on leukemia cells. The extract caused the leukemia cells to self-destruct and left the normal cells healthy and stable.
The seeds also contain a phytochemical known as flavonol, which is a potent antioxidant that can reduce tumor growth.

Avocado seeds are packed with fiber, which can keep you full and satiated. Plus, avocado seeds can help control your blood sugar levels. When your overall blood glucose levels are steady throughout the day – you’re less likely to give in to junk food cravings.

Avocado seeds are the perfect food for your skin. Their potent antioxidants can rebuild collagen, repair cell damage caused by free radicals, and actually improve the look and feel of your skin.
