Here in the United States, medical marijuana quickly went from something that was ridiculed to something that was accepted as having a potential basis in reality, and now, we have doctor after doctor coming out in favor of its widespread medical uses.

One of them is Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who you might’ve seen on CNN a few times and who recently started to endorse medical marijuana.

Dr. Gupta explained the journey to understand the plant’s medicinal properties in a 2014 article on CNN.com.

“This scientific journey is about a growing number of patients who want the cannabis plant as a genuine medicine, not to get high.

“It is about emerging science that not only shows and proves what marijuana can do for the body but provides better insights into the mechanisms of marijuana in the brain, helping us better understand a plant whose benefits have been documented for thousands of years. Continue reading

Who is Ra? – Crystal Healing

law-of-one-book-i-the-ra-materialBy Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

We hear a lot in the conscious community about the healing use of crystals, but is it just a fad? Are crystals little more than neat, colorful rocks that only appear to offer some sort of healing, or is there more to them than meets the eye?

As we’ll learn here, crystals serve a specific healing purpose, and it has a lot to do with our chakras (or ‘energy centers’) and the chakras of the earth.

I used to channel, and one of the subjects that was always touched on was that the earth has chakras that we can align with to receive a pure stream of healing energy. This energy can rebalance us and help us become purer instruments for the expression – creative or otherwise – of our Christ consciousness. Continue reading

Selflessness: The New Normal

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

The purpose of our existence, beyond realizing our eternal connection with the Almighty, is to serve others. We’re here to offer ourselves to the awakening of the masses in any way we see fit, and our perspective starts to shift when we realize we can no longer live solely for ourselves.

We can no longer satisfy our own material needs while so many people starve every day, and we have to find the willingness to look at the world’s condition and figure out how we can make a change.

We have to find compassion for the people around us, and until we can transcend selfishness and take a bigger look at our unbalanced society, we’ll continue to struggle without really understanding why.

We’re meant to work together to solve the issues we face – most of which are environmental and economic – but we’ve been kept too divided to become aware of the plight of people in poorer countries, much less to do anything about it. Continue reading

The Way Can Only Be Found Within

By Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

It’s always emphasized in the conscious community that we have to find our own way, and we can’t rely solely on what other people say if we want to spiritually grow.

There are a lot of gurus available to help show the way, and while there’s nothing wrong with relying on them to a healthy extent, we also have to be willing to interpret spirit in our own way. Continue reading

Addiction and the New Activism

By Wes Annac & Loral Emery-Lamere, The Culture of Awareness

A new form of activism is emerging, and it isn’t coming from the younger generations who are fed up with the system. This new activism is coming from people you might not expect: concerned parents who’ve either lost their children to drug addiction or know someone who has.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that synthetic drugs like meth, cocaine and heroin are bad for you, but I don’t think people realize how much of a rampant epidemic drug addiction has become.

Most people are comfortable being complacent, and it’s easy to ignore social issues like drug addiction when we aren’t directly confronted by them. Unfortunately, more and more people (and families) are being confronted, and many of them have been inspired to take action. Continue reading

More on Finding Our Creative Purpose

By Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

It’s no secret that we’re in a time of transition, and some of us have been asking ourselves how we want to contribute to our spiritual revolution.

We’re being led to creative outlets that are intended to enhance the light we give to the conscious community, and as we open up to our higher consciousness and let our creative side flow, we’re given all kinds of opportunities to share our work with the world.

The only struggle for some of us is in deciding, once and for all, how we want to contribute. There are plenty of ways we can creatively express ourselves, and we’re reaching a point where we need to figure out just what we want our role to be. Continue reading

The Silent, Peaceful Sage

By Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

I define a “sage” as someone who uses their awareness, which they find in stillness and contemplation, to subtly and quietly create positive change. The sage embodies material transcendence and expresses him or herself through love and peace, and everything flows to this quiet, still embodiment of divine perfection.

The sage who’s successfully opened their mind and allowed their heart-centered wisdom to pour through gains a greater understanding of the nature of reality, and in my opinion, we don’t have to accomplish anything to become a sage.

All we have to do is sit in silence and recognize our simplistic divinity, and we don’t have to be loved by the masses to change the world. All we have to do is transform our consciousness, and everything else will flow from the heart space, allowing us to help the world wake up. Continue reading
