This Is Why Finland Has The Best Schools

This Is Why Finland Has The Best Schools

William Doyle

The Harvard education professor Howard Gardner once advised Americans, “Learn from Finland, which has the most effective schools and which does just about the opposite of what we are doing in the United States.”

Following his recommendation, I enrolled my seven-year-old son in a primary school in Joensuu. Finland, which is about as far east as you can go in the European Union before you hit the guard towers of the Russian border.

OK, I wasn’t just blindly following Gardner – I had a position as a lecturer at the University of Eastern Finland for a semester. But the point is that, for five months, my wife, my son and I experienced a stunningly stress-free, and stunningly good, school system. Finland has a history of producing the highest global test scores in the Western world, as well as a trophy case full of other recent No. 1 global rankings, including most literate nation.

In Finland, children don’t receive formal academic training until the age of seven. Until then, many are in day care and learn through play, songs, games and conversation. Most children walk or bike to school, even the youngest. School hours are short and homework is generally light.

Unlike in the United States, where many schools are slashing recess, schoolchildren in Finland have a mandatory 15-minute outdoor free-play break every hour of every day. Fresh air, nature and regular physical activity breaks are considered engines of learning. According to one Finnish maxim, “There is no bad weather. Only inadequate clothing.”

One evening, I asked my son what he did for gym that day. “They sent us into the woods with a map and compass and we had to find our way out,” he said.

Finland doesn’t waste time or money on low-quality mass standardized testing. Instead, children are assessed every day, through direct observation, check-ins and quizzes by the highest-quality “personalized learning device” ever created – flesh-and-blood teachers.

In class, children are allowed to have fun, giggle and daydream from time to time. Finns put into practice the cultural mantras I heard over and over: “Let children be children,” “The work of a child is to play,” and “Children learn best through play.”

The emotional climate of the typical classroom is warm, safe, respectful and highly supportive. There are no scripted lessons and no quasi-martial requirements to walk in straight lines or sit up straight. As one Chinese student-teacher studying in Finland marveled to me, “In Chinese schools, you feel like you’re in the military. Here, you feel like you’re part of a really nice family.” She is trying to figure out how she can stay in Finland permanently.

In Finland teachers are the most trusted and admired professionals next to doctors, in part because they are required to have a master’s degree in education with specialization in research and classroom practice.

“Our mission as adults is to protect our children from politicians,” one Finnish childhood education professor told me. “We also have an ethical and moral responsibility to tell business people to stay out of our building.” In fact, any Finnish citizen is free to visit any school whenever they like, but her message was clear: Educators are the ultimate authorities on education, not bureaucrats, and not technology vendors.

Finland delivers on a national public scale highly qualified, highly respected and highly professionalized teachers who conduct personalized one-on-one instruction; manageable class sizes; a rich, developmentally correct curriculum; regular physical activity; little or no low-quality standardized tests and the toxic stress and wasted time and energy that accompanies them; daily assessments by teachers; and a classroom atmosphere of safety, collaboration, warmth and respect for children as cherished individuals.

One day last November, when the first snow came to my part of Finland, I heard a commotion outside my university faculty office window, which is close to the teacher training school’s outdoor play area. I walked over to investigate.

The field was filled with children savoring the first taste of winter amid the pine trees.

“Do you hear that?” asked the recess monitor, a special education teacher wearing a yellow safety smock.

“That,” she said proudly, “is the voice of happiness.”

Preparing For The Third Energy Wave of September 2016

Editor’s note:  As I have mentioned before, I am not one to post channeled messages, but I will if the message resonates with me.  I have seen a variety of messages speaking of the 3rd energy wave coming in next month (September) with the same dates mentioned:  9-11th (when the wave first begins to hit) and the 26th (when it arrives fully).  The people who speak of this have a variety of backgrounds from writers to intuitives to phd’s in the sciences.  Before I read this article, I awoke in the morning only to to hear my Higher Self tell me “it is time to prepare yourself for this next wave of energy”.  I asked myself what I needed to do and was guided to get extra rest, meditate, gentle exercise, drink a lot of water and eat good food (high vibrational foods can also be as simple as blessing your food – something I do).  Upon reading this piece, I knew it was Truth for me and thus, am sharing with you.  

THIRD WAVE OF ENERGY COMING IN SEPTEMBER…- THE PLEIADIAN-SIRIAN- ARCTURIAN COUNCIL OF LIGHT through ASARA

“We are here now.

We love you.

We are you, from your future to assist you on your path.

You have experienced the first and second Wave of intense energy in the last 12 months.

Now you are getting ready for the third wave of energy that will give you profound support for your Ascension journey.

 Each of these waves are clearing old vibrational patterns in your cellular structure, DNA, emotional body and spiritual body.

Then, new light codes are being disbursed on your planet to lift you up into a higher dimensional reality.

At the same time, these powerful energies and shifts might cause some of you to get thrown off balance emotionally, spiritually and physically.

As you are preparing for this upcoming wave, it is of utmost importance that you tend to your vibrational frequencies, emotional and physical state on a daily bases.

Most importantly, the amount of light codes you will receive, depends on your permission and choice to receive the highest, yet appropriate amount for your individual journey.  

Are you ready to accelerate your ascension and with it a higher dimensional experience?

We recommend that, each morning, you take time to meditate, to set your intent for what you wish to experience and create, that you nurture your physical body with high vibrational foods and clean water, plenty of rest as well as exercise.

You can imagine this time period like a training ground, before the initial wave comes to your planet. (September 9th – 11th)

During the initial wave you will already experience the energies and the more you can tend to your physical, emotional and spiritual body, the better.

Starting on September 26th, the third wave will arrive at your planet and will continue for several weeks. 

The duration of this wave depends on the level of integration of the collective mass-consciousness of humanity.

Remain in your emotional, spiritual and physical center as much as you can.

Together with Adama of Telos and Archangel Michael we will keep you updated during this profound and important time.

We are with you… always.

We love you.

We are you.

Namaste.”

Thank you, Galactic Council of Light!

On Grief – Part 4 – Hello Anger

I did some art therapy outside today under our big poplar tree.  I got into this technique last fall and found it to be effective.  I began by drawing sad, crying eyes, writing all sorts of words that came to mind.  Tears. Loss.  My friend.  And then – Why?

Why her?
Why so young?
Then I thought of the Billy Joel song, “Only The Good Die Young.”
And paused.

Then, I picked up the black colored pencil.  Held it for a moment.  Black.  That’s a good color for anger.  Then wrote it out.  ANGER.

I AM ANGRY.
Black lines followed, all over the page.  I need more than just black, I thought.  I paused.
Then I picked up the red pencil.  Good color, I thought, drawing a rose with jagged petals and thorns.  Lots of thorns.
“Only the good die young,” I hummed softly.
Why is that?
Seriously, I want to know.  WHY? Continue reading “On Grief – Part 4 – Hello Anger”

On Grief – Part 3

Oh grief, you chaotic, pain-in-my-ass friend.
Friend?
Yes, friend.
How can you call grief “friend”?

I do and can because you, grief, are making me softer and gentler.  You are making me feel at deeper levels how precious life is.  How to share my heart, to share my love, to share me, NOW.  Not later.  For really there is no later.  There is only NOW.  Only NOW is promised.

Awareness Of Increasing Dimensional Slippage

Editor’s note:  As I have mentioned, I normally stay clear of channelings, especially posting them on this site.  However, when something resonates with me as this piece does, I will share.  I focus most on the message, less on the messenger.  Months ago, I began saying “not in my reality” then visualizing how I want my reality to appear when I see things like the chemtrails in the skies or hear of the latest political drama or talk of more war, etc.  At times I will literally place up my hand, like Neo in the Matrix does in the end when finally realizing his Power and the truth of the illusion he had been living.  “No,” I will say, hand up.  “Not in my reality.”  Give it a try.  It is effective and enough of us doing this continues the shift to Love.

GREETINGS DIVINE LIGHT TRIBE,
ARE YOU SENSING THAT SOMETHING HAS CHANGED ON A GRAND LEVEL AND THE CURRENT REALITY IS A DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT ONE?
FROM THIS AUTHOR’S PERSPECTIVE, I CAN SAY THAT WHILE NO THING HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY IN MY OUTWARD LIFE IN ANY WAY, I HAVE BEEN AND AM RIGHT-NOW SUPER-AWARE OF A SERIOUS DIMENSIONAL SHIFT THAT HAS HAPPENED AND IS HAPPENING WHICH IS INCREASING MORE AND MORE AS WE INCREASE IN INTERNAL VIBRATION.
ITS HARD TO EXPLAIN THIS INNER SENSING OF BEING WAY, WAY, WAY, NOT IN THE SAME REALITY THAT I WAS A WEEK AGO , A MONTH AGO A YEAR AGO? THERE IS ALSO THIS FEELING OF STRANGENESS IN THE AIR, AND THE SOUND OF A LOUD QUIETNESS LIKE A SUPER CALM BEFORE A BREWING STORM!
WHEN I LOOK AROUND AT THE PHYSICAL WORLD I SEE A CLEAR INCREASING OF CHAOTIC PATTERNS IN EVERY AREA OF THE 3D MATRIX! IT IS PHYSICALLY OBSERVED (A 3-D SENSE) IN THE SKIES, IN THE WEATHER, IN SOCIAL UNREST, POLITICS, LARGE GOVERNMENTAL MANEUVERS AND CAN BE DETECTED BY SIMPLY WALKING OUTDOORS AND INTAKING THE ATMOSPHERE OF EVERY-DAY LIFE.
THERE IS AN EXTERNAL OBVIOUSNESS THAT 3D IS GETTING CRAZIER BY THE HOUR AND THAT EXTREME UPHEAVAL AND CHANGE IN ALL SYSTEMS IS UNDERWAY AND INCREASING ON A GLOBAL BASIS.
I REMIND MYSELF THAT THE EXTERNAL VIEW IS ONE THING NOT TO BE SO CONCERNED WITH AND THAT THE INNER IS WHAT IS SPEAKING MORE CLEAR AND TRUE.
IN THIS SEEING THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY, ONE ATTEMPTS TO SEE WHAT’S UP AND TRIES TO COME TO SOME RATIONAL CONCLUSION OF TRUE-NESS AND GET TO THE ACTUALITY OF IT ALL!
HERE IS MY VERSION OF WHAT IS AT THE MOMENT:
IMAGINE THE NEW 5D MATRIX AS ONE LARGE TECTONIC PLATE AND THE 3D AS ANOTHER SMALLER PLATE UNDER BUT LEANING AGAINST THE HEAVIER AND LARGER 5D ONE.
A HUGE SLIPPAGE HAS HAPPENED AND IS STILL HAPPENING, CREATING A FRACTURE AND EVER-WIDENING GAP BETWEEN THE TWO PLATES (DIMENSIONS). THE FORCE AND SHAKING FROM AS THE LARGE PLATE AS ITS INTENSE WEIGHT PUSHES DOWNWARD ON THE 3D PLATE. THIS INCREASING SLIPPAGE REPRESENTS THE OUTWARD CHAOS AND CHANGE THAT IS HAPPENING ON THE EARTH.
NOW VISUALIZE THIS SLIPPAGE AS AN INTER-DIMENSIONAL SLIPPAGE! HAVE YOU NOTICED HOW MANY EARTHLINGS ARE SPEAKING ABOUT THESE STRANGE TIME-LINE JUMPS, PARALLEL REALITIES, MANDELA EFFECTS, ETC?
UNITY IS ULTIMATELY WHERE WE ARE HEADED, BUT UNITY WITH WHO? ACCORDING TO UNIVERSAL LAW, TWO DIMENSIONS (OUT OF SYNC FREQUENCIES) HAVE NO THING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER AND THE TWO SHALL NEVER TWAIN. IS THIS CHAOS MANIFESTING BECAUSE THE TWO DIMENSIONS ARE COMBINING, OR IS IT HAPPENING BECAUSE THESE TWO REALITIES ARE BEING FORCED FURTHER AND FURTHER APART FOR GOOD? WE SAY THE LATTER!
THE GAP BETWEEN THESE TWO SEPARATE WORLDS WE EXIST IN IS NOT UNIFYING INTO ONE TIME-LINE, BUT FORCING APART WITH TREMENDOUS PRESSURE.
THERE ARE MANY SPIRITUAL WRITINGS THAT SAY THINGS LIKE, “THE WHEAT IS SEPARATED FROM THE CHAFF, AND THE LAMBS AND GOATS ARE PUT ON TWO DIFFERENT SIDES, AND ONE IS LEFT BEHIND AND ONE IS TAKEN,” AND SO ON!
IN SUMMARY , WE ARE SAYING THAT THE GAP BETWEEN THE LOW VIBRATION AND THE EXTREMELY HIGH VIBRATION IS GROWING TOO WIDE TO SUSTAIN FURTHER AND ONE DIMENSIONSIONAL REALITY HAS LITERALLY BROKEN AWAY FROM THE OTHER AS THE OLD FALLS AWAY AND GIVES WAY TO THE NEW!
IF WHAT WE ARE SAYING IS SO IT MEANS YOU MUST QUICKLY CHOOSE A SIDE! ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP HANGING ONTO THE OLD THING AS YOU CONTINUE TO ASCEND HAVING YOUR BEING STRETCHED TO THE LIMIT BY THE INCREDIBLE PULL OF THIS DIMENSIONAL SEPARATION, OR ARE YOU ABLE TO COMPLETELY RE-ALIGN YOURSELF WITH ONLY THE HIGHER VIBRATIONS IN SHORT ORDER?
THIS SOUND A BIT LIKE SEPARATION THEOLOGY, BUT WE SAY IT IS MORE ABOUT HOW UNIVERSAL LAW SEPARATES AND GROUPS THINGS ACCORDING TO MATCHING FREQUENCIES.
WE CAN ASSURE YOU THAT IN THE END OF IT ALL, THERE IS UNITY BECAUSE THOUGH A BEING CAN GO BACKWARDS OR NOT PROGRESS FORWARD FOR A TIME FOR DIFFERENT REASONS, BUT THE EXTREME LIGHT PRESSURE THAT WILL CONTINUE BEARING DOWN ON THEM WILL LITERALLY OBLITERATE THEM BACK INTO THE LIGHT, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!
SO MANY ARE COMING IN FEAR ASKING WHERE IS IT ALL GOING? WHAT WILL HAPPEN AND WE SAY ,THE CHOICE IS UP TO YOU BY WHAT STATE OF BEING YOU CHOOSE AS YOUR NOW-HERE REALITY!
AS EXTREME FORCES OF LIGHT OVERTAKE THE OLD DARK MATRIX ONE MUST MAKE A CONSCIOUS DECISION TO GO ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
WE ARE HERE TO GIVE YOU A QUICK REMINDER THAT YOU ARE VIBRATING MUCH, MUCH HIGHER THAN YOU WERE MONTHS AGO, SO STOP FORGETTING THIS AND BE EXTRA, EXTRA CAREFUL WITH YOUR VIBRATIONAL FOCUS! YES, NOW MORE THAN EVER, LOCK IN YOUR NEW EARTH NOW REALITY AND STAY HERE! THE CHANGE AND CHAOS CAN BE EXTREMELY DISTRACTING AND CAN DRAW YOU BACK INTO A STATE OF UNCONSCIOUSNESS IF ONE IS NOT CAREFUL AND HOPEFULLY YOU ARE ABLE TO BE AWARE ENOUGH TO STOP LOOKING AT THE EXTERNAL AND BRING YOUR FOCUS BACK ONTO THE BEAUTIFUL DIVINE WORLD YOU HAVE ALMOST MANIFESTED INTO THE PHYSICAL REALM!
YOU ARE CLOSE DEAR ONES, SO KEEP YOUR EYES FORWARD AND FOCUSED ON THE FINISH LINE.
DO NOT BE DRAWN BACK DOWN INTO THE LOWER WORLD BECAUSE YOU ARE TRULY LIFTING OFF THE GROUND NOW AWAY FROM THE OLD EARTH AND YOU ARE HEADED INTO THE BRIGHT LIGHT OF A NEW WORLD WHERE THE OLD ENERGIES LITERALLY DO NOT AND CANNOT EXIST.
NOW WE ASK YOU TO TAKE YOUR FOCUS COMPLETELY OFF OF WHAT YOU SEE WITH YOUR 3D EYES BECAUSE THIS INCREASING CHAOS IS A NATURAL BY-PRODUCT OF INCREASING LIGHT ENTERING INTO THE DARK FADING 3D MATRIX. SEE IT AS THE PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION AS PART OF THIS WHOLE DIVINE PROCESS.
YOUR LIGHT IS DISSOLVING THE OLD HARMFUL ENERGIES THAT NO LONGER SERVE YOU AND THAT CANNOT PASS WITH YOU INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH!
THE CONTROLLERS ARE USING THIS NATURAL CHANGE-RELATED CHAOS THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU TO TRY AND KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON IT. THEY WILL SHOW IT AND SHOW IT BUT JUST REMEMBER THE EXTERNAL IS 100% ILLUSION AND WILL NOT AFFECT YOU IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO OBSERVE IT!REMEMBER AS AN ANGELIC BEING IN A HUMAN BODY, HERE TO ASSIST HUMANITY, YOU MUST WAKE UP FULLY, MAKE A DECISION ABOUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT AND START BEING WHO AND WHAT YOU TRULY ARE QUICKLY! YOU KEEP THINKING YOU ARE A PRIMITIVE, POWERLESS, UNCONCIOUS HUMAN, YOU ARENT, YOU ARE AND ADVANCED STAR BEING WHO CAME HERE WITH INTENTION AND ON A MISSION TO HELP THEM!KNOW THAT THE INCREASING CHAOS COMING TO THIS WORLD AND THAT IS ALREADY HERE IS FOR THE ONE WHO HAS BEEN PROGRAMMED TO BELIEVE THIS REALITY AND WAY OF BEING IS ALL THAT EXISTS, WITH SOME HOPE OF HEAVEN AFTER DEATH, BUT NONE OF THIS IS SO! THERE IS NO DEATH FOR YOU TO EXPERIENCE AND THERE ARE INFINITE REALITIES THAT YOU CAN CHOOSE RIGHT NOW AS YOURS AND IT SHALL BE! THE CHAOTIC UPHEAVAL INCREASING ON THE EARTH IS NOT AIMED AT YOU AT ALL AND YOU HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE AND ABILITY TO TRANSCEND THE HARMFUL INSANITY OF THE 3-D MATRIX WHILE STILL IN YOUR BODY.WE CAME FOR THE PURPOSE OF GUIDING YOU THROUGH THIS GREAT TIME OF CHANGE, WHERE THE LOWER CHAOS HAS NO EFFECT ON YOU WHATSOEVER.CONTACT US AT MICAHGUARDIAN@GMAIL.COM AND WE WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO DEAL WITH THESE GRAND EARTH CHANGES IN AN EASY AND EFFECTIVE WAY AND WE WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO CROSS THE DIVINE TIMELINE COMPLETELY IN A SHORT TIME IF YOU ARE READY AND WILLING!

“I AM ARCHANGEL MICHAEL, THE DEFENDER OF MY PEOPLE AND I AM WITH YOU EVEN TO THE END OF THE OLD WORLD. BEHOLD I SAW A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH, AND I SAW YOU AND I PLAYING THERE!”

GOD-SPEED, ARCHANGEL MICHAEL

The Biggest Shift Is Happening Now

The Biggest Shift Ever On The Planet Is Happening NOW: Be In The Mission

The Seven Pillars Of The Matrix

Editor’s note:  This is a very well-stated summary of what the system does to us from birth, in particular the public school system and system of religions.  Wake up.  Break free.  Question everything.  And weigh these words within the Truth of your Heart Intelligence.  

 

Has The System Collapsed?

Seems there have been hints for years of the big one to come:  the collapse of the system.  Sometimes a little bit of practical advice in the form of a simple graph can clear that up.  Here’s a simple little site that does just this:  http://didthesystemcollapse.com/

Cannabinoids: The New Vitamin ‘C’?

Editor’s note: I am going to be juicing with the leaves and will report any positive differences I experience.  I cannot smoke it for a variety of reasons and desire to have the health benefits without the psychoactive effects.  Juicing w/the leaves does just that.  

Dr. Matthew Buckley, PSc.D., Contributor

Throughout the nation, one of the hottest social and political discussions right now is whether or not we should legalize marijuana. I believe that when examining what is known about the utility and the importance of the marijuana plant, specifically as it relates to health, it becomes clear what a grave mistake it is to deprive ourselves of this truly nutrient rich plant. I believe that its cannabinoid compounds meet the definition of “vitamins”, not just any vitamin, but a vitamin that may be necessary for controlling our bodies ability to eliminate cancerous cells, in addition to supporting numerous bodily functions.(1)

It’s worth pointing out that this post is not about marijuana or hemp’s numerous other uses as a food, fuel, or fiber.

A vitamin is defined as “any of a group of organic compounds that are essential for normal growth and nutrition and are required in small quantities in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body.”

What is a “non-essential” vitamin?

A non-essential vitamin is an organic compound that is necessary for normal growth and function, that can be produced within our bodies.

What is a cannabinoid?

Cannibinoids are chemical compounds which act on cell receptors (CB 1) and (CB 2) within the body. In a normal, healthy state, the human body can produce two chemicals, possibly more, which act on these receptors: anadamide and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG).These are called “endogenous cannabinoids”. Outside of the body, the hemp or marijuana plant are known to produce a number of forms of cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids), such as THC, or CBD, which also act on these receptors.(2) These are called “exogenous cannabinoids”, or phytocannabinoids.

What do cannabinoids do?

Cannabinoids have been found to profoundly influence the immune system, with CB1 exerting its activity primarily through the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 exerting its influence over the gut, lymphatic system, spleen, pancreas, endocrine system, bone and peripheral nervous system. (3)

Due to the broad range of tissues which demonstrate cannabinoid receptors, cannabinoids are reportedto have near panacea type benefits, both anecdotally as well as from orthodox science. Perhaps most notably, cannabinoids demonstrate broad range anti-cancer benefits at even low doses, however some experts indicate that high doses are needed in the oral form (not smoked) for anti-cancer benefits.(4)(5)(6) Also notable, are the reports of cannabinoids being effective in the treatment or management of autoimmune conditions. Given the connection between disruptions in the gut lining and virtually every autoimmune condition known to man(7), one would expect to find some sort of regulatory action of cannabinoids in maintaining gut lining integrity, and research is clearly showing that to be the case.(8)

Currently, the governmental scientific research repository, pubmed ,returns nearly 12,000 research papers on the search term “cannabinoids”. Clearly, the scientific community recognizes something very important here. It’s worth noting that the US government owns a patent on cannabinoids due to their proven anti-oxidant and neuro-protective effects, which should seem odd since one of the prime justifications for not allowing medical marijuana to be legal in every state is that our governmental overlords claim that marijuana lacks medicinal value.(9)

Should cannabinoids be considered vitamins?

I believe that it’s simply a matter of time before cannabinoids, such as those derived from cannabis and the hemp plant, will be recognized as “n
on-essential” vitamins.

thc_anandamide

Biotin is a non-essential vitamin. Just as the microbes in our bodies can produce vitamin B7, biotin, it’s possible for deficiencies to occur due to various disruptions in the balance of intestinal microbes. (10) Therefore, there are times when it becomes necessary to supplement with biotin if we are to prevent the deleterious effects of a lack of this vitamin.

Likewise, it appears that in times of stress that our bodies require an increasing amount of cannabinoids in order to regulate the “endocannabinoid” system, which either directly or indirectly influences every cell in the body.(11) It stands to reason that if the body can not produce sufficient levels of anadamide and 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) to exert their influence within the endocannabinoid system, that an outside source would be required otherwise normal cell growth and function could not be achieved. The best source for these exogenous sources of cannabinoids appears to be compounds found within marijuana and hemp, although other sources have been identified (12).

Clearly, if it is demonstrated that cannabinoids are necessary for the “normal growth and function” of the the body, which the research appears to be showing, then by definition, cannabinoids should be classified as “non-essential” vitamins.

Taking vitamins shouldn’t be a crime.

While non-THC containing hemp (CBD) oil, which only influences CB2 receptors, is legally available over the counter in every state of the US, THC and its CB1 influencing cannabis oil is still under heavy regulation, and unavailable (outside of the black market), throughout most of the US. The significance of this is that it appears that stimulation of CB1 may be most critical in order to exert the anti-cancer benefits found within the endocannibinoid system, and it also appears that it is primarily the CB1 action that appears to be regulating the integrity of the gut lining, which is important when addressing ANY chronic illness, especially autoimmune disorders. With 1:2 Americans predicted to be diagnosed with cancer, and 1:3 challenged by chronic illness at some point in their life, this should be of concern to every American. In time, perhaps, cancer may be revealed to be a “vitamin deficiency”, if it’s demonstrated that adequate amounts of cannabinoids do indeed regulate control over our bodies ability to properly eliminate cancerous cellsMore research is needed in this area, however.

If you’re interested in helping to end the draconian drug laws related to the prohibition of marijuana, the “National Organization for Marijuana Reform Laws” is a good organization to support. Clearly drugs laws do not prevent drug usage, their availability, or their potency. Many people within law enforcement arenow speaking out about this. The current drug laws seem even more absurd when you consider that such laws appear to be creating vitamin deficiencies that may be fueling much of our current chronic disease epidemic.

Time Is Speeding Up

Editor’s note:  I have indeed noticed this phenomenon.  I simply cannot accomplish all that I used to be able to – and recently this has increased.  I have read where we are headed for the “void” – where time ceases to exist.  

Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Editor, WooWoo Media

Are you one of the people who feel like time is speeding up?  If so, you may be one of the people who are about to move into the next density.

Many people across the world are experiencing a feeling as if time is speeding up.  While a day is still constituted in 24 hour increments, time seems to be moving faster than ever for many people.

There are several explanations for the time speeding up phenomenon.  The most popular explanation is that time isn’t speeding up, but our consciousness is, which makes it seem like time is speeding up.

 Ian Lungold believed that time was speeding up because creation was speeding up. In other words, more was happening in less time. “When more is possible to happen in every moment,” stated Lungold, “there is more possible outcomes which opens the door to things called miracles.”

What many people aren’t taking into account is vibration.  Everything in existence revolves around vibration as atoms vibrate to create our 3rd dimensional reality.  As the atoms vibrate faster, the illusion of time speeding up is created because, physiologically, our bodies are sensing the speeding up of “something” but we cannot attribute it to anything familiar other than time.

The reason we cannot physically see higher dimensions is because they are vibrating at a higher rate.  As our bodies start to vibrate at a higher rate, we begin to feel as though time is also speeding up.

Look no further than the drastic changes within our solar system.  For many years in the past, our sun was a bright yellow in color but has since turned into a bright whitish yellow as it reflects the changes in vibration within our solar system.

In alchemy, the statement of “as above, so below” applies.  As our solar system is going through dramatic climate changes, so is our planet.  As our planet goes through dramatic climate changes, the inhabitants of this plant will experience drastic changes.  One of these changes is in the vibratory level of the spin in the atoms of our bodies.

Days, weeks and years seem to fly by quicker than ever. This isn’t just a physiological symptom of those who are progressing in age as every age genre from teens through the elderly is experiencing this phenomenon.

The easiest way to raise your body’s vibratory rate is through meditation. Other ways include showing kindness to all forms of life, radiating unconditional love and doing kind deeds for others.

A simple way to raise your vibration while helping to raise the vibrations of others is to mentally express love and appreciation to random people through positive thoughts and intentions.  For example, if you were to take a walk on the beach or even a stroll through the mall, try envisioning that everyone is part of your family.  As people walk by you, mentally tell them, “I love you.  You’re beautiful and perfect just the way you are.”

Related: Why Raising Your Energy Vibration Is So Important

The bottom line is that your 3rd dimensional body may be preparing you for the 5th dimension as your atoms continue to vibrate at a higher level.
