A Note About the Paris Attacks; The World Needs Love

The Bataclan Theatre, site of one of the attacks.

By Wes Annac

It seems appropriate to write something about the Paris attacks, but like other people, I didn’t feel like I had much to say about it at first; there was only shock, hurt and disbelief. Like so many other things have, this tragedy reminds us that there’s an unfathomable level of evil in this world that rears its ugly head too often.

I didn’t immediately start researching and writing about the attacks like you’d expect a writer who wants to raise social awareness to do, because I was trying to wrap my head around how people can be so evil and ruthless and not care about the lives they’ve taken and the lives they’ve changed forever.

Some people (including me) smelled a false flag from the minute they read about it, but in my eyes, this evil is here whether the attacks were a false flag or not. I personally think they are, but beyond the need to raise awareness and bring an end to state-sponsored terrorism for the goal of curtailing civil rights, what we should really focus on is that there’s something alarmingly wrong with this world and some of the people in it.

You can blame Muslims or Arabs, you can blame the government, the Illuminati… it really doesn’t matter. What does matter is the fact that some people have completely lost their humanity to the point that they’re willing to kill innocent people for their own agendas. And whether it was ISIL or the power structures in government, they did this to satisfy a selfish agenda and that makes it even worse.

The best advice I can give is to continue to laugh, love and share good vibes during this tragedy. I’m not saying we should be blind or complacent to it and pretend life is all sunshine and unicorns since it clearly isn’t, but the world needs our love and good vibes more than ever.

The world needs us to keep singing; keep writing; keep being creative. We need to come together in love and respect now more than ever, and I honestly think this is the only way we can hope to prevent things like this from happening in the future. If people could somehow change from within, the world would be absent of the pure hatred and greed that causes these things to happen.

It isn’t easy to be in a good place or give love when so many people have suffered and will continue to, but we have to be strong and do it anyway. Love and unity will always be the answers, but the very idea sounds overly naive in a time like this. Nevertheless, we have to believe in the basic goodness and decency of most people and we have to know that that decency will prevail, even in times of extreme strife and turmoil.

Whoever is responsible, and I do believe it’s the geopolitical types who have a hidden hand in running our governments (and who use false flags to justify the loss of the masses’ civil rights), they need to be brought to justice for the sake of everyone who was killed and/or lost a loved one.

We need justice, but we also need love, compassion and unity. That’s really all I have to say about this, and I sincerely hope the people responsible are exposed and brought down so we can focus on restoring everything that’s good and right.

Does Cannabis Enhance Spirituality?

You hear about psychedelics often in the spiritual community, and while most people are brought up to believe they’re harmful and should be avoided, some will tell you that they aren’t harmful at all. In fact, they’re believed to be quite beneficial for the spiritual seeker who wants to glimpse a higher consciousness.

Spirituality is interesting because it draws in people with all kinds of different beliefs, and some people use it to stay away from drugs. They embrace the power of meditation and other spiritual practices to raise their vibration instead of getting high, and they have spirituality to thank for their sobriety. They’d probably regularly indulge in their drug of choice if it weren’t for their faith.

Russell Brand and David Wilcock are two good examples.

But for others, psychedelic drugs enhance their spirituality and bring them closer to what every spiritual person wants. Some are passionate about all of the psychedelics out there, and they’ll tell you all about the power of psilocybin (magic) mushrooms, LSD, DMT (commonly used in the Ayahuasca brew), salvia and others.

Knowledge, Enlightenment and Selfless Service

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

While knowledge is important, I’ve struggled to enthusiastically research and learn new things; mainly because various spiritual teachers have discouraged a focus on knowledge, which they see as a distraction from enlightenment. While I’ve never religiously followed any teacher’s advice, I can see how the drive for knowledge can be spiritually confining if we focus only on it and not on personal transformation.

Some teachers say the drive for knowledge traps us in the mind, and only by getting into a space beyond the mind where we can observe its habits and tendencies can we glimpse enlightenment. Anything less causes us to feed the mind and subsequently, the ego, and in their eyes, the most effective way to find enlightenment is to give up the desire for worldly things (like knowledge) and empty the mind so the spirit can flow.

I’ve struggled with this because I enjoy learning new things and writing about what I learn, which is new for me. I never really cared about researching or writing reports before, but now that I’ve found so many subjects that interest me (spirituality, social awareness, psychedelics, topics that have to do with the spiritual community, etc.), I want to learn and share as much as I can. I feel like I’m awakening to the value of knowledge and the satisfaction that comes with sharing it. Continue reading

Would Cannabis Legalization Confuse Kids About Drugs?

Ohio recently rejected a measure to legalize marijuana and allow just ten producers to grow and sell it commercially. The latter part of the measure drew understandable criticism, but I’m sure any change in the state’s marijuana law would be a welcome alternative for some residents.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who opposes legalization, appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on November 6th to talk about the negative effect he thinks it would have on children. During the interview, Colbert pointed out the hypocrisy of not wanting to “confuse kids about drugs” in a country where alcohol is legal and culturally acceptable.

Mollie Reilly at The Huffington Post explains.

“[Kasich] stopped by CBS’ ‘The Late Show’ three days after his state rejected a constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana. The ballot measure would have allowed the use of recreational and medical marijuana in the state, but would only have let 10 producers grow and sell it commercially, thus drawing opposition from some marijuana advocates.

“Kasich opposed the measure, calling legal recreational pot a ‘terrible idea.’ On Friday, Colbert questioned this stance, noting the governor’s support for criminal justice reform.” (1) Continue reading

Synchronicity: A Message from Your Inner Universe

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Since today is November 11th (11/11), let’s discuss synchronicity.

I started to notice synchronicities with numbers everywhere shortly after I learned about them, and I think one of their purposes is to confirm that what we’re thinking or doing the moment we receive them is in alignment with our path. If we have a thought regarding our work, our spiritual evolution or anything else important, a set of matching numbers (111, 222, etc.) can appear seemingly out of nowhere to confirm that we’re on the right track.

Of course, synchronicities with numbers aren’t the only kind we can pick up on. Has a strange coincidence ever happened to you out of nowhere that left you wondering if it was driven by an underlying, perhaps universal intelligence? Continue reading

Ancient Kazakh Earthworks Defy History: Will NASA Tell the Truth?

Note from Wes: I wrote this piece for the website Era of Wisdom, and I figured I’d share it here for those of you who are interested. Enjoy!

By Wes Annac

(Era of Wisdom) NASA recently turned their attention to a set of ancient earthworks discovered in Kazakhstan, the oldest of which are believed to date back 8,000 years. Their complexity and sophistication have people scratching their heads, and they serve as potential evidence that our history is nothing like we think.

According to the New York Times, Kazakh archaeology enthusiast Dmitriy Dey discovered the earthworks via Google Earth in 2007, and now NASA is interested in capturing photos from the International Space Station.

The New York Times reports:

“High in the skies over Kazakhstan, space-age technology has revealed an ancient mystery on the ground.

“Satellite pictures of a remote and treeless northern steppe reveal colossal earthworks — geometric figures of squares, crosses, lines and rings the size of several football fields, recognizable only from the air and the oldest estimated at 8,000 years old.”

“The largest, near a Neolithic settlement, is a giant square of 101 raised mounds, its opposite corners connected by a diagonal cross, covering more terrain than the Great Pyramid of Cheops. Another is a kind of three-limbed swastika, its arms ending in zigzags bent counterclockwise.” (1)

There are over two hundred of the “Steppe Geoglyphs” as they’re being called, and they haven’t been studied until now.

“Described last year at an archaeology conference in Istanbul as unique and previously unstudied, the earthworks, in the Turgai region of northern Kazakhstan, number at least 260 — mounds, trenches and ramparts — arrayed in five basic shapes.

“Spotted on Google Earth in 2007 by a Kazakh economist and archaeology enthusiast, Dmitriy Dey, the so-called Steppe Geoglyphs remain deeply puzzling and largely unknown to the outside world.” (2)

NASA recently showed their interest by releasing two satellite photographs of the Steppe Geoglyphs, and they plan to take pictures from the International Space Station.

“Two weeks ago, in the biggest sign so far of official interest in investigating the sites, NASA released clear satellite photographs of some of the figures from about 430 miles up.

“‘I’ve never seen anything like this; I found it remarkable,’ said Compton J. Tucker, a senior biospheric scientist for NASA in Washington who provided the archived images, taken by the satellite contractor DigitalGlobe, to Mr. Dey and The New York Times.

Ronald E. LaPorte, a University of Pittsburgh scientist who helped publicize the finds, called NASA’s involvement ‘hugely important’ in mobilizing support for further research.

“This week, NASA put space photography of the region on a task list for astronauts in the International Space Station. “‘It may take some time for the crew to take imagery of your site since we are under the mercy of sun elevation angles, weather constraints and crew schedule,’ Melissa Higgins of Mission Operations emailed Dr. LaPorte.” (3)

People are excited that NASA is showing interest because they think the research will help figure out the origins of these earthworks, and how they relate to our ancient history; but I’m skeptical.

NASA is well-known in certain alternative communities for suppressing evidence of things they don’t want the public to know. People believe their research is censored if they discover something the higher-ups don’t want to get out.

While examples, facts, and evidence to support the claim of suppressed information should be presented in making a case for that, NASA’s sense of priority is exemplified by one glaringly obvious fact; they are an agency of the US government.

Most people don’t know that these earthworks are just the tip of the iceberg. They aren’t the only things that suggest we don’t know our true history, and they aren’t the only things that people know nothing about. Plenty of ancient tools and devices have been discovered that couldn’t have possibly existed in their time according to what we were taught in school, and they force us to rethink everything we thought we knew about our history.

A 500 million year old hammer embedded in rock.

Take, for example, a 500 million year old hammer that was discovered in the 1930s. Graham Pick at MaltaNow.com explains.

In June 1936 Max Hahn and his wife Emma were on a walk beside a waterfall near to London, Texas, when they noticed a rock with wood protruding from its core. They decided to take the oddity home and later cracked it open with a hammer and a chisel. What they found within shocked the archaeological and scientific community. Embedded in the rock was what appeared to be some type of ancient man made hammer.

“A team of archaeologists analyzed and dated it. The rock encasing the hammer was dated to more than 400 million years old. The hammer itself turned out to be more than 500 million years old.

“A half billion year old hammer embedded in rock that formed 400 million years ago.” (4)

If that doesn’t get you thinking, then how about a clay figurine that was discovered to be “at least” 15 million years old?

“In 1889 near Nampa, Idaho, whilst workers were boring an artesian well, a small figurine made of baked clay was extracted from a depth of 320 feet. To reach this depth the workers had to cut through fifteen feet of basalt lava and many other strata below that. That in itself does not seem remarkable, until one considers that the very top layer of lava has been dated to at least 15 million years old!

“It is currently accepted by science and geology that coal is a by-product of decaying vegetation. The vegetation becomes buried over time and is covered with sediment. That sediment eventually fossilizes and becomes rock. This natural process of coal formation takes up to 400 million years to accomplish.

“Anything that is found in lumps of coal or in coal seams during mining, had to have been placed or dropped into the vegetation before it was buried in sediment.” (5)

Photo origin unknown.

How about a hand-crafted bell that was discovered in a “300 million year old lump of coal”?

“In 1944, as a ten year old boy, Newton Anderson, dropped a lump of coal in his basement and it broke in half as it hit the floor. What he discovered inside defies explanation based upon current scientific orthodoxy.

“Inside the coal was a hand crafted brass alloy bell with an iron clapper and sculptured handle.

“When an analysis was carried out it was discovered that the bell was made from an unusual mix of metals, different from any known modern alloy production (including copper, zinc, tin, arsenic, iodine, and selenium).

“The seam from whence this lump of coal was mined is estimated to be 300,000,000 years old!

“A hand crafted bell found in a 300 million year old lump of coal!” (6)

There are apparently plenty more examples of ancient artifacts being discovered in broken-up coal. Graham describes four of them.

“The Morrisonville, Illinois Times, on June 11, 1891, reported how Mrs. S. W. Culp found a circular shaped eight-carat gold chain, about 10 inches long, embedded in a lump of coal after she broke it apart to put in her scuttle. The chain was described as ‘antique’ and of ‘quaint workmanship.’

“Displayed in a museum at Glen Rose, Texas, is a cast iron pot reportedly found in a large lump of coal in 1912 by a worker feeding coal into the furnace of a power plant. When he split open the coal the worker said the pot fell out, leaving its impression in the coal.

“Yet another report found in the Epoch Times told of a Colorado rancher who in the 1800’s broke open a lump of coal, dug from a vein some 300 feet below the surface, and discovered a “strange-looking iron thimble.”

“The Salzburg Cube is yet another ancient puzzle found by a worker named Reidl, in an Austrian foundry in 1885. Like the others, this man broke open a block of coal and found a metal cube embedded inside. Recent analysis established the object was of forged iron and obviously hand crafted. The coal it was found in was millions of years old.” (7)

Apparently, this stuff is pretty common.

“These extraordinary discoveries although bizarre, are not unique or even uncommon. There are literally thousands of them collecting dust, locked away from public scrutiny in the vaults of museums throughout the world.” (8)

I know NASA isn’t directly affiliated with ancient artifacts, but they work for the same people who don’t want us to know our real history. The fact that these amazing discoveries are locked away gives me less assurance that any organization affiliated with the government would actually want to do something with the discovery of the Steppe Geoglyphs, and somebody somewhere probably already knows the truth about them.

Instead of being widely observed as contradictions to mainstream history, these things are given brief attention in the media before people move on to the next political debate or celebrity scandal.

There’s a reason the media doesn’t give our ancient history much attention, and their owners don’t want people to know what’s really been going on. They want people to be slightly interested in these kinds of discoveries, which is why NASA’s a part of it and mainstream news outlets cover it, but their interest is only skin deep.

For a brief moment, they get to appear as if they aren’t suppressing this stuff or refusing to explore it all in depth. They maintain the illusion that they’re genuinely interested in figuring out our history, but throughout the research, genuine discoveries that could really open people’s minds are hidden.

We’re given little glimpses, but we’ll never know the truth unless we do our own research and draw our own conclusions. Until we do, we’re forced to put up with the little bits of “truth” the mainstream feeds us.

I’ll gladly eat my words if NASA takes this discovery somewhere, but something tells me we won’t hear much more about it unless we hear from alternative news outlets. Suppression will start at the first sign of a real discovery, and concerned, courageous employees will have to blow the whistle just to get the truth out.

If you do decide to do the research, prepare to be dumbfounded. Nothing is as it seems, and this can especially be said about our history and the extent to which the power structures go to hide it.

Intuitive Writing: Let the Higher Vibes Flow

Credit: thespiritscience.net

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

Intuitive writing is basically a combination of writing and meditation, and while the writings I bring through during meditation aren’t quite as easy to read as the ones I write in the traditional format, I think intuitive writing is a valuable way to create that has a lot to offer the individuals who practice it.

You’ve probably heard of channeling, which is when someone allows another entity to speak through them (the entity is usually assumed to be a departed loved one or a spiritual guide), and intuitive writing is a little different. You don’t leave the body to intuitively write, and it isn’t even the same as automatic writing, which is a lighter form of channeling.

Intuitive writing is different from channeling in that the ‘channeler’ influences the communication almost as much as the ‘entity’ coming through, and in this case, the ‘entity’ is the channel’s own higher consciousness. So when you read an intuitive writing from me, you’re basically reading something I wrote in a meditative state. Continue reading
