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.

Magic mushrooms create a hyperconnected brain

Magic mushrooms may give users trippy experiences by creating a hyperconnected brain.
The active ingredient in the psychedelic drug, psilocybin, seems to completely disrupt the normal communication networks in the brain, by connecting "brain regions that don't normally talk together," said study co-author Paul Expert, a physicist at King's College London.
The research, which was published today (Oct. 28) in theJournal of the Royal Society Interface, is part of a larger effort to understand how psychedelic drugs work, in the hopes that they could one day be used by psychiatrists — in carefully controlled settings — to treat conditions such as depression,

Psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, is best known for triggering vivid hallucinations. It can make colors seem oversaturated and dissolve the boundaries between objects.
But the drug also seems to have more long-lasting effects. Many people report intensely spiritual experiences while taking the drug, and some studies even suggest that one transcendent trip can alter people's personalities on a long-term basis, making those individuals more open to new experiences and more appreciative of art, curiosity and emotion.
People who experiment with psilocybin "report it as one of the most profound experiences they've had in their lives, even comparing it to the birth of their children," Expert told Live Science.
Making connections
Scientists have long known that psilocybin binds to a receptor in the brain for serotonin, a brain chemical that plays a role in mood, appetite and sleep, but exactly how the drug transforms the whole brain's pattern of communication isn't clear.
In past work, Expert's colleagues had found that psilocybin spurred the brain into a more dreamlike state, and that the drug decreased brain activity.
In the current study, the team used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to scan the brain activity of 15 healthy volunteers — once after they had taken a placebo, and once after they took the hallucinogen psilocybin. (The team chose only people who had reported past positive experiences with magic mushrooms to prevent them from panicking inside the claustrophobic MRI machines.)
The team then compared the brain activity of the individuals on and off the drug, and created a map of connections between different brain regions.
Psilocybin dramatically transformed the participants' brain organization, Expert said. With the drug, normally unconnected brain regions showed brain activity that was synchronized tightly in time. That suggested the drug was stimulating long-range connections the brain normally wouldn't make. After the drug wore off, brain activity went back to normal.
Drug's effect
Psilocybin may create a brain state akin to synesthesia, a sensory effect in which one sense stimulus (such as a number) always gets paired in the brain with another (such as a color or a sound), the researchers wrote in the paper. People with synesthesia may see certain colors when they hear music, or always see the number 3 in yellow, for instance, Expert said.
The findings could help scientists who are studying the drug as a potential treatment for depression, Expert said. Past work has found that people tend to be happier even after using psilocybin just once, but scientists would need to get a much better picture of how the drug impacts the brain before using psilocybin to treat depression, Expert said.
The research could ultimately also help answer bigger questions of the mind, like how people construct a sense of self.
"Through studies such as these we can really begin to tackle the questions of how we achieve coherent experiences of ourselves in the world around us, and understand what makes this break down," said Mitul Mehta, a psychopharmacology researcher at King's College London, who was not involved in the study.

Every tree, every plant, has a spirit

"Every tree, every plant, has a spirit. People may say that the plant has no mind. I tell them that the plant is alive & conscious. A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit in it that is conscious, that sees everything, which is the soul of the plant, its essence, what makes it alive. The channels through which the water & sap move are the veins of the spirit." —Pablo Amaringo

Art: Patiquina Samai, The breath of the Patiquinas, by Pablo Amaringo: "The widely used in Peru in baños florales (floral baths) for counteracting brujeria [sorcery] and attracting positive energy. The four varieties of patiquina seen here are verde, blanco, negro and pintado (green, white, black and mottled), each with its own spirit or guardian which you can see beside each of the plants. The Patiquina verde in the top right for example, is used to represent the lungs; the essence of a person’s being. The different shades of green, extending from the edge of the leaf to its centre indicates here that the state of the lungs is good. This painting is featured in the book ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo‘ published by Inner Traditions 2011. Authors Howard G Charing and Peter Cloudsley."

Ten star gazing events for 2016

10 Star Gazing Events in 2016 you won't want to miss by Jeff Wilson

I’m not alone in loving to watch the stars. Even as science progress and we can explain more of these whimsical celestial events, the information does nothing to detract from the beauty and awe. If anything I think it adds a new level of connection to the universe I live in. Here are some of the 2016 highlights for the stars. Stay tuned to Spirit Science ass we approach these dates for what to expect and what it all means. I like to know about celestial movements as early as possible so I can organize an adventure with my friends. These are amazing events alone but why not share them with your friends!

Total Eclipse Of The Sun On March 8th Through The 9th

The umbral shadow of the moon will carve a path from Asia to the far eastern parts of the USA. An umbral shadow refers to the darkest aspect of a shadow cast on Earth by an opaque celestial body. The Moon’s umbra will be tracking through the south eastern Asian islands of Sumatra, Bangka Belitung, Borneo, Sulawesi and Halmahera. The umbra will then strike out across the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii. Those countries and states will be a able to see a partial or full eclipse.

Penumbral Eclipse Of The Moon On March 23rd

Two weeks after the moon passes between the Earth and Sun the moon will come around again in a very narrow orbit. The moon will pass through the Northern part of Earth’s shadow but avoid the Earths umbra. The moon will be darkened but still visible to viewers along North America’s West coast up to 30 minutes to an hour before moon set.

A ‘Blue’ Moon Rises On May 21st

The rule with blue Moons is dictated by how many are full Moons are visible in the calendar year. In years where there are 13 full moons that means one month will have two full moons. It isn’t clear if the Moon will literally be blue, the name refers to the appearance of two months being seen within a certain window. A heavy enough amount of particles in the atmosphere is what ‘changes’ the color of the Moon. The amounts of debris a large enough percentage but the actual particles have to be at least 0.7 microns wide on average. Fires and volcanic activity are well known for changing the hue of the Moon.

Mars Shines Like None Other In Late Spring

We can see the fiery light of Mars through out most the year, though for a only a short window does it shine well enough to fuss over. From around May 18th to June 3rd of this year, Mars will arrive at opposition to the Sun. This means it will be aligned with the Sun in a manner to reflect the most amount of life. During this time the planet will be one of the top three brightest celestial bodies next to the Sun and Moon. There will be nights where Mars is actually brighter than the Moon!

An Occultation Of Aldebaran July 29th

Aldebaran is a large orange star 65 light years and is seen as part of the constellation Taurus. You will be able to see Moon occulte Aldebaran that evening. This means that the Moon will fully block out the star and its light for a few moments. This event can be viewed over Western Canada and the US,an hour before the sunrise. Observers will want to track the occultation in the Northeast to Eastern skies.

The Perseid Meteor Shower August 11th to the 15th

Perseid meteor shower is one of the highest ranked annually occurring meteor showers. It has a consistent and easily tracked window for observation and boasts an awesome 90 shooting stars per hour. It can be seen anywhere in the world a little after midnight. I saw last years and it was amazing. The hardest part was keeping my gaze soft enough to peripherally see as many as I could at one time. A meteoroid would flash incredibly bright and my eye would zoom in on the one, making it hard to see the others!

Visible Doubles Light Up August 28th

A couple of hours after sunset on the 28th you can gaze up to see the two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, within 10-15 degrees of each other. If you hold up your arm to the sky and make a fist, that is about 10 degrees on average.
This occultation will have a waning moon blocking Aldebaran. This event can be seen over Eastern Canada and most of the US, except parts of the Midwest.

The ‘Super Moon’ Debuts Again On November 14th

This particular ‘Supermoon’ won’t be an optical illusion. The moon will turn full around 9 am EST and 2.4 hours later it will come within 221,541 miles (356,536 km) of Earth. The last time the moon was this close was in 1948. The Moon’s average traveling distance around Earth is 238,900 miles (384,400 km).

The Geminid Meteor Shower And The Last Occultation Of Aldebaran on December 13th-14th

Normally the Geminid showers are the most beautiful and luminescent of all the showers. This year the Moon will be full and blocking Aldebaran for North American viewers. Only the brightest meteors will be visible that night. On the plus side I’ve never seen first hand a shower with a full moon as the background! Should be beautiful and I’m looking forward to hunting a more secluded star watching spot. I want to be able to see as much as I can.

Decreased social anxiety among young adults who eat fermented foods

Psychologists have traditionally looked to the mind to help people living with mental health issues. But a recent study led by William & Mary researchers shows that the stomach may also play a key role, suggesting that the old adage "you are what you eat" is more than a cliché.
W&M Psychology Professors Matthew Hilimire and Catherine Forestell recently joined with University of Maryland School of Social Work Assistant Professor Jordan DeVylder to investigate a possible connection between fermented foods, which contain probiotics, and social anxiety. The researchers found that young adults who eat more fermented foods have fewer social anxiety symptoms, with the effect being greatest among those at genetic risk for social anxiety disorder as measured by neuroticism.
The journal Psychiatry Research accepted the study in April for publication in August.
"It is likely that the probiotics in the fermented foods are favorably changing the environment in the gut, and changes in the gut in turn influence social anxiety," said Hilimire. "I think that it is absolutely fascinating that the microorganisms in your gut can influence your mind."

CBD Hemp Oil the story of Weed and Cannabis madness

hemp fields Devon England  summer 2014.
Just enjoyed re-watching  Dr Sanjay Gupta's excellent documentary series on the development of  medical marijuana, focused in the United States but also visiting GW pharmaceuticals, the producers of Sativex in Britain, in what looks like Wiltshire. We meet the handsome well educated clean cut Stanley brothers in Colorado who developed the strain Charlotte's Web named after the little girl with epilepsy whom they helped. The various medical uses for cannabis are explored including the most common one - pain, also, MS, Alzheimers, PTSD, epilepsy, and helping cope with chemotherapy. It looks at the long term effects on the brain too, very different to the effects of high THC recreational strains.

Traditional, natural hemp in Britain had  lower THC levels than  the strains recreationally in use today. High CBD low THC strains are seeing a  resurgence, for specific medical conditions and also general health.  Our CBD oil is made from hemp grown in our fields in Devon UK. We include our cbd oil as a regular part of our daily diet for general health and wellbeing.

Why do cannabinoids make such a profound difference to our health and wellbeing? ?

Cannabinoids are very similar to a group of chemicals in the human body which regulate the way the body runs and remains healthy. For historical reasons these endogenous (originating within) compounds have been named endocannabinoids. The reason is that they were studied in the cannabis plant before they were identified in the human body. Cannabinoids from the hemp plant latch onto the same receptors sites as the endocannabinoids produced in the human body, so create a similar effect and help regulate the bodily systems in a very beneficial way.

Soldiers turn to Sweat Lodges to treat PTSD

A sweat lodge on Fort Carson is leading the way for military installations around the United States.
The centuries-old Native American tradition has become a new form of treatment for soldiers suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
What once was a ritual held in secrecy is now a growing trend among both active duty and veteran warriors seeking its legendary cleansing powers. In a remote section of Turkey Creek, the air is filled with songs and smoke at the Lakota Sioux inipi, a traditional sweat lodge made of willow branches and donated quilts.
The sweat lodge has been there since 1995.
“They didn’t have a clue as to what we were doing, and we weren’t telling them at the time,” says faith group leader Michael Hackwith.
Hackwith, a Marine veteran of the Gulf War, started the inipi with a couple friends who wanted to follow their own cultural religious practice. They got permission from the manager of the Turkey Creek ranch at the time. The participants pray, sing, play drums and sweat in the tent around dozens of hot stones, in complete darkness. It is a purity ritual designed to help sweat out negativity, a common problem for struggling soldiers.
Special Agent Kevin Cheek of the Air Force, now the military liaison for the sweat lodge, says, “I’ve deployed five times. I’ve been there and back, and all that negative baggage that you collect and the things that you see and stuff like that, this helps you cope. This helps you deal with all that.”
Fort Carson formally recognized the sweat lodge as a religious practice in 2005, the first ever on a military base. Chaplains now recommend the ritual to those with PTSD. Guided by natives belting out tribal chants, everyone else is encouraged to pray in their own faith.
“You pray for your enemies and people that don’t like you,” explains Cheek. “And that’s difficult, and as a veteran, you’re praying for those people that actually shot at you. That helps you come to terms with a lot of the stuff.”
For some, discovering the sweat lodge came at the lowest point in their lives. John Charles Freyta, a Desert Storm veteran, found out about the ceremony at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. He says, “I got shot by the police four times, and I told the police I was suicidal and I wanted to die, and I threw a rock at them and they shot me.”
Now rocks provide an escape. The stones heat over open flames for hours before being passed into the sweat lodge, where leaders pour sage and water over them to produce the steam.
Originally designated only for men of the tribe, leaders now welcome anyone to the lodge, especially soldiers. Women and men sit on opposite sides of the lodge, which seats up to 40 participants. Women wear loose cotton garb, while men wear shorts. After four rounds of sweating, the participants share a pipe filled with willow bark and eat ceremonial dishes that represent different aspects of life.
The leaders hope the tradition will continue for generations to come. Spiritual leader Wesley Black Elk says, “There’s not a whole lot of Native Americans left in this country, and the sad truth is someday we’ll be gone, and this is all they have to remember us by.”

Frankincense an antidepressant

"Burning the resin of a Boswellia tree as an incense has been a component in religious and cultural ceremony for milennia, for it is said that its aroma contributes to spiritual exaltation. Also known as frankincense and olibanum, Boswellia resin has been mentioned in numerous ancient texts including the old testament for its mystical capabilities and continues to have its place in some spiritual practices today. An international team of scientists including researchers from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Johns Hopkins University set out to understand how this age-old practice produces these mysterious psychoactive effects.
To observe the incense’s psychoactive effects, the researchers administered incensole acetate, the primary constituent of the Boswellia resin, to mice. The team found that the incensole acetate affects areas of the brain that aid in emotion regulation, specifically activating the protein TRPV3, a protein found within mammalian brains that is known to play a role in the skin’s perception of warmth. This effect on the mind has a powerful anti-depressant and anxiolytic effect that can leave one in an almost vulnerable state of relaxation where one can lay their mind to rest and simply perceive."

Dangers of the UK psychoactives ban

"If the government wants to combat the problems caused by new psychoactive substances, a far more effective policy would be to legalise and regulate traditional psychoactive drugs." Daniel Prior
“health risks will only increase once trade in them has been made illegal, as criminal enterprise is not famed for its insistence on quality control. In essence, the bill is going to provide a profitable and dangerous new market for drug dealers to explore." Amanda Feilding

The Beauty of Ibogaine

"...the beauty of ibogaine. It not only interrupts addiction and withdrawal symptoms but deals with the root causes.  It’s true that there are cases where people become addicted to prescription medications and just need some help to kick the habit and in these cases ibogaine can do its work of comfortably lifting this dependence.
Ibogaine is a psychoactive substance.  During an ibogaine session, after ingesting the medicine, the patient enters into a dream like state and encounters visions.  They experience a clearer view of life events which enable them to come to terms with them and move on.  They may experience other guidance.  At the same time there is  a brain reset.  Opiate and neurotransmitter receptors are normalised for a new start.
Interestingly, nicotine is an addiction that is, more often than not, not shifted although it happens in about 40% of cases.  It is one of the most addictive substances known, but, to be honest, it is not the priority for most people coming for treatment.  The director of the ibogaine centre I visited tells how, after an ibogaine session, smokers will often light a cigarette even if it makes them nauseous at first, simply because they want to smoke, their primary addiction having been dispensed with.  On the other hand, there is a very high percentage success rate with alcohol and other drugs.
Ibogaine versus iboga
As described, iboga is the name of a visionary and healing central west African plant.  Ibogaine is the chief therapeutic constituent found in the root of this planet.  The question often arises in holistic circles whether it would be better to use the complete root of the plant rather than an extracted constituent.  It is true that there are other active ingredients in the iboga root but there are also a lot of toxins.  And do we really know what the other chemicals are and what they do?  In the case of milder doses for some kind of shamanic journey, iboga root may be a choice for some.  In larger unmeasured doses it is not without risk. Even for psychotherapeutic use it is wise to measure the dose.  In the context of the modern world, many of our problems, for example with  manufactured drugs, are far from being natural ones; we are well off that path.  Extracting the ibogaine from the iboga plant not only eliminates toxins but enables a measured dose to be given, to achieve the best results.  The highest quality extracted ibogaine known as ibogaine hcl is produced by only one company which is located in Canada.  They supply only to approved practices.  By using this it can be certain that it is genuinely pure medical grade ibogaine.
To deal with an immediate and serious problem such as drug addiction it is essential to generate what is called a ‘flood dose’ in order to push out artificial opiates and other foreign chemicals out and restore natural opiate functioning in the brain.  The dose must be neither too small nor too large.  It is based on the patient’s weight and is precisely measured.  The medicine is put into a number of capsules for the patient to swallow shortly after which the visions will begin.  In this way ancient wisdom meets modern medicine.

Psychoactive Substances Act

A new law, the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016,  comes into effect in the UK in April, it was given royal assent on 28th January.
It prohibits any substance  that is psychoactive, with the exceptions of alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, controlled drugs, approved medicinal products, and foods. It includes tryptamines such as you find in ayahuasca herbs. Ayahuasca will be banned as there’s no history of medicinal use in the UK, but products such as St John Wort etc will probably not be affected. Ibogaine, the natural remedy for addiction is covered by the ban.

At one stage, while the psychoactive substances bill was going through Parliament, it was decided to exclude natural substances from the bill. Much of the healing community breathed a sigh of relief, but these plant medicines became included in the ban again later.

The full details can be accessed here.

As of this April, when this Act comes into effect, ibogaine will be effectively prohibited in the United Kingdom. Information has been updated on the Global Ibogaine Therapy Alliance legal status map.
They say “This is further evidence of How Prohibition is Depriving Society from Essential Medicines and Therapeutic Toolshttp:
At the Global Ibogaine Conference this March you are invited to
join the discussion about changing drug policies and regulatory frameworks for ibogaine .

divine poetry in molecular motion

 “watch this excerpt from a recent animation that provides just a hint of the unimaginable dynamic complexity that you are Do not buy into your perceptually limited mind telling you ‘this is just what happens in my cells’. Although near the cutting edge of biological animation and still a relatively crude representation of the molecular biology that you are in action, right now, it does begin to reveal what extraordinarily complex beings we are, divine poetry in molecular motion.”
