 - 2016 began with a bang: French telecommunications giant Orange announced in early January it was dumping its Israel affiliate.

This came just months after boycott activists renewed their campaign against the company over its support for Israel’s 2014 assault on Gaza and its complicity in Israel’s colonization of the occupied West Bank.

The same week, a major Irish corporation yanked its cement contracts with Israel following boycott pressure.

Meanwhile, churches, student unions and local activists continued to organize strong boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaigns that caused panic among Israeli leaders.

Embarrassed by these significant victories, Israel spent 2016 waging “an all-out war” on the global BDS campaign, “in a desperate attempt to crush it,” according to the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC).

Sunrise-in-Space - 2016 was a huge year, albeit a most bizarre mix of the good and the not-so-good. In rapid-fire, semi-automatic, non-stop succession, the events of this year launched the human story into new heights of drama. To the stratosphere of drama, it seems. And it all happened with such magnitude, gravity, force and weight. As though a tractor beam of sorts prohibited any deviance, refused any escape, and pulled so many of us into the irrefutable tidal pool of group-think and collective lunacy.

Never before have we been so connected with such total freedom of expression. Never before have we been so willingly drawn into the big, ongoing, force-fed narratives. Never before have we been so totally sucked into the cacophony of our own madness, with so many of us abandoning ourselves in the temptation and desire to make ourselves heard, to make ourselves feel unique among the herd. Never before has being loud and abandoning respect been so profitable. And never before has the collective story had such and all-encompassing pull over the individual.

  - On Wednesday, 21 December, Earth Heal hosted the Solstice group distant healing event for 221 participants around the world, roughly 70% people and 30% animals.

The treatment process was facilitated by Edna Spennato in Bahia, Brazil. The healing energy was anchored with the help of five human surrogates in four countries: one in South Africa, one in Argentina, one in the UK and two in the USA.

Many of the participants reported that they and/or their animal companions experienced powerful energies and sensations during and after the treatment, as well as detoxification processes in the days following the event.

Excerpts from the feedback received after the event are shown below.

Our first group distant healing event for 2017 will be happening on the Full Moon of 10 February. All are welcome to participate. More info to be posted closer to the time.

 - Brazil will restore 22 million hectares of land in what’s being called “the largest restoration commitment ever made by a single nation.”

“We are a country of forests,” says Rachel Biderman, director of the World Resources Institute in Brazil. “The national strategy for the restoration of forests and degraded areas positions Brazil as one of the global leaders in the development of a forest economy.”

Between now and 2030, Brazil plans to rehabilitate 12 million hectares of forest land that is degraded or deforested. The balance of the area will be restored and developed through the country’s Low-Carbon Agriculture Plan for crops, managed forests, and pastures. Brazil made the plan public at the United Nations Conference on Biodiversity in Cancún, Mexico, on December 3rd.

right-to-food - The right to food campaign is dismayed by the Indian government’s reckless attempt to renew currency notes, known as “demonetization”, without any serious attention to the consequences it may have for poor people. This move serves no clear purpose and is a major attack on the right to food and the right to life.

Demonetization was sold to the public by claiming that it would flush out the black economy. In a rare display of near-unanimity, economists of all persuasions have exposed this misleading claim. Illegal income is not usually held in the form of wads of cash. It is spent, invested, laundered or converted in other ways into safer and more profitable stores of value than currency notes. That is the main reason why the bulk of old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes have found their way back to the Reserve Bank of India during the last two months, contrary to the assumption that demonetization would leave crooks with large amounts of unusable notes.

 - As the world continues to awaken to the true nature of reality, the frequency of real truth gets stronger and stronger amongst the collective consciousness. The longer this journey goes on, the closer it gets to identifying the root causes of what’s fundamentally wrong with today’s world. While the alternative media often discusses all the things broken in the system and they ways in which the masses are controlled, we don’t often talk about how we are going to go about changing it for the betterment of humanity.

While this shouldn’t take away from the importance of identifying problems, the truth is that problem-analysis only brings about any real difference if we are willing and able to come up with tangible solutions that are then put into action. Although there are many solutions that can be discussed, it seems that one thing stands out above all else when it comes to changing the world. That solution is none other than pure imagination.

s-2-14-696x362 - The latest marijuana benefits just discovered are that it can treat bone fractures and also help in organ transplants.

It is now clear that marijuana has a medicinal value, with some researchers constantly using what little resources they have to demonstrate the point. The results from such studies are amazing, showing a remarkable efficacy of the plant.

But despite these encouraging findings, the plant still remains illegal in a country where, if it is legalized, could have a significant impact on the rest of the world.

Credit: Michigan Urban Farming Initiative - Urban renewal on a couple of acres in a northern section of Detroit, Michigan doesn’t mean fancy street signs, sprawling apartment complexes or bicycle lanes. It means a vision for clean food and sustainable agriculture to create a new kind of urban development called an “agrihood.” Parcels of land formerly in disarray are being dug up and retrofitted as an urban farm and more under the direction of the 501 (3) (c) group called the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI).

As reported by Crainsdetroit.com, since 2011, when this all volunteer organization was started, 8000 volunteers have put in a total of 80,000 hours on their urban organic farm and produced over 50,000 pounds of free produce to “neighborhood residences, area churches and food pantries.”  Trueactivist.com reports that plans are also in the works to build  “3,200 square foot Community Resource Center,” which will serve as volunteer headquarters and a place to teach interested parties, especially children, about health, clean food and sustainable agriculture.  A 200 tree orchard and a health food café is also in the blueprints.

 - When we live in a scarcity-based system it’s easy to believe that having abundance is near impossible, but that’s just because we’ve probably got the wrong idea of what true abundance actually is.

The ideologies that dominate our societal landscape – particularly operationally – have skewed our collective view on what’s important and what’s not. For example, our materialistic culture which has been deceived by the debunked pop philosophy of the same name has generated a plethora of issues which have distracted the masses from aligning with natural law, divine values and their true nature.

Simply, a huge proportion of the populace are in a constant state of suffering which is caused from a complex mix of self-abusive lifestyle choices, as well as the general challenges of living within the current era.

coconuts - In order to get a glimpse of the future we often times must look into the past and identify common patterns. One of those trends that reveals itself throughout every major culture is the inclusion of highly revered, high nutritionally dense, longevity enhancing foods found in their inhabited environment. In our time we have catalogued all the major staples of these civilizations under the grouping of “superfoods”. These are unique among more common food selections for a multitude of reasons. One of which and potentially the most important is that they contain novel compounds that are rarely found in other foods. In some cases these properties are entirely unique to that single food and cannot be replicated in a laboratory. Due to the wide diversity and uniqueness of these foods they are considered therapeutic grade foods. This means they are recommended, as well as have been used historically, as healing agents and preventative nutrition as part of a larger longevity diet.

The way I educate people on super foods is that they represent natures preferred replacement for supplementation. It is a known fact of living in the twentieth century that strategic supplementation is necessary. It has been my observation over the years that synthetic chemically extracted isolated nutrients in most cases can throw the bodies metabolic rhythm off balance. This is why we now turn our attention to foods and whole food concentrates that contain all their active compounds, are not extracted using chemical solvents, have a historical lineage dating hundreds to thousands of years of usage as key components of longevity diets, and at the end of the day are 100% food.

conflict_of_interest_1200x600 - Researchers affiliated with France’s National Institute for Agricultural Research recently announced the results of their study regarding potential conflicts of interest and published studies on GM crops.

The study was published by the journal PLOS One and determined that a large portion of studies on genetically modified crops were rife with conflicts of interest.

Most of these studies were tainted because someone working on the study was also an employee of a GM-producing company either as an author or having received funds directly from the company.
