Before Religion, This Is How People Connected With Their Spirituality:

“The shaman is not merely a sick man, or a madman; he is a sick man who has healed himself.” – Terence McKenna

Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American ethnobotanist, mystic, psychonaut, lecturer, and author who spoke and wrote about a variety of subjects, including psychedelic drugs, plant-based entheogens, shamanism, metaphysics, alchemy, language, philosophy, culture, technology, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness. He was called the “Timothy Leary of the ’90s”, “one of the leading authorities on the ontological foundations of shamanism”, and the “intellectual voice of rave culture”.

Shamanism is a spiritual practice found in cultures around the world from ancient times up to the present day. First and foremost, shamans’ practices are practical and adaptable. These practices coexist over millennia with varying cultures, systems of government, and organized religious practices.

Many formalized religions, from Buddhism to Christianity, came from ancient shamanic roots and still bear the shamanic threads of deep connection to the divine in all things. But shamanism itself is not a formalized system of beliefs or an ideology. Rather, it is a group of activities and experiences shared by shamans in cultures around the world. These practices are adaptable and coexist with different cultures, systems of government, and organized religious practices.

In this gem of a video Terence Mckenna spends 15 minutes talking about ‘The Spirit Of Shamanism’.

“Because it is not an organized religion as such, but rather a spiritual practice, shamanism cuts across all faiths and creeds, reaching deep levels of ancestral memory. As a primal belief system, which precedes established religion, it has its own symbolism and cosmology, inhabited by beings, gods, and totems, who display similar characteristics although they appear in various forms, depending upon their places of origin.” ~John Matthews, The Celtic Shaman.

The Science of Dreams: What They Mean & We Can Control Them

In this enlightening short film, Vsauce founder Michael Stevens embarks on an in-depth investigation into the reasons as to why we dream. Dreams have only just recently earned a genuine interest among the scientific community in the past century and as a result, they have remained shrouded in much mystery.

As he combs through the history of Oneirology, the study of dreams, Stevens pieces together the timeline of understanding of this phenomena and explores everything we have come to know thus far.

Taking a look at everything from rate of occurrence and brain activity to purpose and meaning, this carefully formulated explanation offers some compelling insight for those curious about this fascinating faculty of the mind.

Iboga: What It is & It’s Incredible Life-Changing Properties

Tabernanthe iboga or simply iboga is a small tree that is indigenous to central western Africa. In Gabon, this tree is used by the people there to understand Life itself.

Its active chemical ‘Ibogaine’ is said by those who’ve used it to unlock a “ruthless inner voice of truth”.

Likened to a voice of reason not unlike that of a stern father, this brutal but enlightening experience allows a deep level of healing to occur for those with trauma, PTSD and narcotic additions.

This is not typical psychedelic compound. It is said that the experience  de-conditions the mind in order to view life experiences from an unbiased point of view that can shatter addictions and negative behavior patterns by seeing the ‘source’ of them from deep within yourself which gives you a new sense of clarity.

Evidence Suggests Electric Vehicles Have Been Suppressed For Over 100 years

idealElectric cars have been around since 1884 when the first practical electric automobile was unveiled by Thomas Parker the man who also electrified the London underground and overheard Tramways.  By 1900 38% of America’s automobiles were powered by electricity compared to 22% running on oil fuel.

In 1911 the New York Times celebrated the Electric car as ”Ideal” because it was cleaner, quieter and more economical than internal combustion engines. This was decades before concerns about global warming and carbon emissions became mainstream.

The department of energy estimates that the national power grid could power 180 million electric cars. Yet, despite electric cars being around for as long as the automobile has existed and despite our society being dependent on electricity for much longer , electric vehicles have not become the standard mode of transport and are only now emerging as a popular alternative to oil powered vehicles.

This “Telepathic” Child Was Tested By Scientists And The Results Will Amaze You

Ramses-SanguinoFIVE-year-old prodigy Ramses Sanguino is amazing those around him by displaying signs of  telepathic power

Young Ramses seems to have a super intellect and rose to fame when a video of him guessing numbers written on cards by his mother went viral.  Already learning 7 or 8 languages at the age of five, his mother has bared to witness to his amazing abilities and claims to have always known that there is something extremely special about him.

“I knew even before he was born he was going to be someone special who would change the world,” said his mother.

He seems to be able to digest information like a sponge and his mother never quite understood why. But one rather ‘out there’ explanation given has been that he is telepathic and that it’s these powers that have given him this super intelligence. It’s possible that his senses may so be sensitive that he has the ability to read someone’s body movements and facial expressions with so much accuracy that he can tell what they are actually thinking.

Scientists have been so intrigued by Ramses that they have begun to study his abilities.

One well-knownscientist neuroscientist Dr. Diane Powell has taken a special interest in him and has even created a documentary of his behavior.  In one test is is said he  guessed 16 of 17 numbers correctly that were hidden out of sight, including a double digit.

Check out the  video below:

Dr. Powell is looking to gain sponsorship so that she can start a school for young, gifted autistic children to harness their abilities. I truly hope she pursues this avenue with passion as I believe these children could be vital to the future of humanity. Indeed they may even be what people refer to as ‘Indigo Children

Lately there has been much talk of a ‘shift in energy in the planet’. You can see signs of this everywhere you look.  And I believe this is one of those signs.

The Story of Heaven and Hell as Told by an Ancient Samurai

samurai_shootingEarly one morning,  a little monk by the name of Jamyang was sitting deep in meditation when spotted something on the distant horizon – It was a solitary figure marching towards the monastery.

The monkey squinted his eyes trying to focus on the growing figure. As the figure marched closer and closer it appeared to be a warrior of some sort, a samurai possibly – he has two long swords hanging low and armour that was flapping stiffly in the wind.

This was a very long way for a samurai to travel. Interesting.

The monk watched as the mysterious figure drew closer. From what he could see, it appeared to be a ronin— a rogue with no master. He was a very large, brutish looking man with a long stride and a scowl on his face that was visible even from this distance. The monk waited calmly.

After some time the warrior eventually arrived, stopping just a few feet in front of the old monk and kicking up dust, his hands resting on the butts of his weapons. “Monk,” he hissed, “I have come to learn what you know about heaven and hell. Tell me everything.” Continue reading
