All around the world we can now find more and more of these great endeavors turning out to be very well accepted and a resounding success. We the people have the responsibility to stop waste and not wait for governments to do something. Such examples already exist in the U.S. and other European countries like in the U.K. In an effort to combat the £230m of edible food waste across the country, British activists have formed the Real Junk Food Project, aiming to provide otherwise wasted food to people that need it, grocery store style. The first store to open is called “the warehouse” and is located on the Grangefield Industrial Estate. People pay on a “pay as you feel” basis, meaning they are only required to pay what they are able to. They are also able to trade work hours for food.
“The warehouse has absolutely been our lifeline over the past month or so,” local resident Kirsty Rhodes told. Rhodes had suffered a diagnosis of chronic pain and her husband was forced to leave his job to take care of their children. This is when the warehouse fell into place with them. “With three young children and two adults to feed we started to struggle straight away. Luckily we took the plunge to go to the warehouse and it was amazing!” Kirsty said.
Adam Smith, the founder of the Real Junk Food Project, says that the goal is to put one of these stores in every city in the UK. “We’re about to start in Sheffield and Bradford,” he said. “Every city will now obtain central storage and run a ‘people’s supermarket.’” The movement is spreading, as there are now hundreds of cafes around the country feeding people on food waste.

Robert W. Coleman Elementary in West Baltimore is just one example of what needs to be implemented more regarding a holistic approach to disciplining students instead of punishing them or sending them to the principal’s office. The school’s administrators are sending children to “the mindful moment room” where they are able to meditate and wind down. With the new policy in place and in the time that the meditation room has been set up, there have actually been no suspensions throughout the entire year. The program is an initiative organized by the Holistic Life Foundation, a Baltimore-based nonprofit organization committed to nurturing the wellness of children and adults in under-served communities.
Andres Gonzalez, one of the organizers of the project, says that children are even bringing home what they are learning to their families. “That’s how you stop the trickle-down effect when Mom or Pops has a hard day and yells at the kids, and then the kids go to school and yell at their friends. We’ve had parents tell us, ‘I came home the other day stressed out, and my daughter said, Hey, Mom, you need to sit down. I need to teach you how to breathe.'” Gonzalez said.
Most people would say that meditation can be a religious or spiritual experience, while others find it to be a helpful relaxation and anger management tool. In this one Baltimore school, the powers of living in the present are coming to fruition since they also incorporate yoga classes for the children. If more schools adopted this education system instead of what is already old school ideas – pun intended, no doubt the world would see a much faster transformation for the better.

So what’s the secret behind a DMT trip and near death experience? Or is it even a secret as many do like to make believe?
In the next video, Grand Master Mantak Chia explains how this process occurs when there comes the time where the body is “not fit” anymore for the spirit to stay in it.
The adrenal glands and the energy of the kidneys, heart, and lungs are all connected to what is called the death hormone, which starts being built when we’re still in the womb as the organic dark room. When we consume the DMT in substances as a trend that it became in recent years, instead of organically producing it ourselves from our own body (also magic mushrooms and other drugs), there is, in fact, a draining of resources in the body and in the vital life force.
As Mantak Chia explains, the visions we see when the spirit gets out of the body are like the T.V., and that energy has to come from somewhere. And if you experiment with these substances and your body is sensitive enough you can even feel where it comes from. There is always danger when we take too much of something, and staying too much time under the effects of most of the drugs we use today in our society, falling into addiction has its toll on the body.
Most people that doubt his teachings, if they learn with him at his center he explains everything with a scientific background and he has doctors at his center working with him. Dark chambers were also used in ancient Egypt for a reason. The thing is that many people just get offended when there are teachings that for some reason disturbs their drug use.
There is another way of separating the body from the spirit but with energy control. Other points talked about in the video are also the role of melatonin, serotonin, past life memories, the wisdom of the stars and more.
Scientists can tell how foods will react inside the body by incinerating the food and analyzing the mineral content of its ash. If the mineral content is highly alkaline, then the food will likely have an alkalizing effect on the body, and vice versa.
In other words, how the body reacts to certain foods is what determines what foods are alkaline-forming and what foods are acid-forming.
For example, lemons are acidic in nature but have an alkalizing effect on the body once they are digested. Similarly, milk is alkaline outside the body, but acidic upon digestion. The type of soil used to grow fruits and vegetables can influence their mineral content and test results can vary. As a result, different charts can report slightly different pH levels of the same foods.
To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid-forming foods.
To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods.
Use this alkaline-acid foods list as a general guide and don’t worry if one chart is slightly different from another.
The small differences in degree ultimately won’t make a huge difference. What will make the biggest difference is replacing processed foods with fresh foods and adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet.

Now, to clarify, people came to us asking about how to be as alkaline as possible, but it doesn’t work that way as the key is to find balance.
The sheer act of breathing has the ability to raise and lower our blood pH mainly due to oxygen and if you can work together with your mind on those breathing exercises the results can be even better.
The human blood pH should be slightly alkaline (7.35 – 7.45).
Below or above this range means symptoms and disease.
A pH of 7.0 is neutral.
A pH below 7.0 is acidic.
A pH above 7.0 is alkaline.
An acidic pH can occur from an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload and/or immune reactions, or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur. An acidic balance will: decrease the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease its ability to repair damaged cells, decrease its ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.
A blood pH of 6.9, which is slightly acidic, can induce coma/death.
The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far too high in acid producing animal products like meat, eggs, and dairy, and far too low in alkaline producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which are acid forming, and we use artificial chemical sweeteners like NutraSweet, Spoonful, Sweet ‘N Low, Equal, or Aspartame, which are poison and very acid forming. Also on the list, you may see honey as very low acidic (not that bad) instead of alkaline, but the benefits of honey largely compensate. One of the best things we can do to correct an overly acidic body is to clean up the body, adopt a healthy diet/lifestyle, and alkalize your body.

PTSD treatment and moving on with your life is an experience that not many fully succeed under the circumstances, but PTSD is a stress response that is often very susceptible to change and not so rigid or crippling as we think.
Any threatening, deeply hurtful, or very upsetting experience that leaves you feeling helpless and hopeless will trigger a fight, flight, or freeze response, which is your nervous system’s reaction to danger. This is common to any human being. Normally, your nervous system recovers in a relatively short period, between several hours, a few days or weeks, but when you don’t recover, you may be suffering from PTSD.
It is said that although the stress that is caused is a big factor, it is the way to de-stress that can dictate how we cope with it. There are things you can do to alleviate your PTSD symptoms, reduce anxiety and fear, and take back control of your life.
What is PTSD?
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop following an event that threatens—or appears to threaten—your safety. Most people associate PTSD with rape and battle-scarred soldiers—and military combat is the most common cause in men—but an event (or series of events) that overwhelms you with feelings of hopelessness and helplessness can trigger PTSD, especially if the event feels unpredictable and uncontrollable.
PTSD can affect people who personally experience a threatening event, those who witness the event, or those who pick up the pieces afterward, such as emergency workers. PTSD can also result from surgery performed on children so young they don’t understand what’s happening to them, or any event that leaves you emotionally shattered.
Traumatic events that can cause PTSD include:
Everyone is different
PTSD develops differently from person to person because everyone’s nervous system and tolerance for stress is a little different. While the symptoms of PTSD most commonly develop in the hours or days following the traumatic event, it can sometimes take weeks, months, or even years before they appear.
There are three main types of symptoms:
Re-experiencing the traumatic event. This may include upsetting memories, flashbacks, and nightmares, as well as feelings of distress or intense physical reactions when reminded of the event (sweating, pounding heart, nausea, for example).
Avoiding reminders of the trauma. You may try to avoid activities, places or thoughts that remind you of the trauma or be unable to remember important aspects of the event. You may feel detached from others and emotionally numb, or lose interest in activities and life in general, sensing only a limited future for yourself.
Increased anxiety and emotional arousal. These symptoms include trouble sleeping, irritability or outbursts of anger, difficulty concentrating, feeling jumpy and easily startled, and hyper-vigilance (on constant “red alert”).
Other common symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Symptoms of PTSD in children
In children—especially very young children—the symptoms of PTSD can be different from adults and may include:
- Fear of being separated from a parent
- Losing previously-acquired skills (such as toilet training)
- Sleep problems and nightmares
- Somber, compulsive play in which themes or aspects of the trauma are repeated
- New phobias and anxieties that seem unrelated to the trauma (such as a fear of monsters)
- Acting out the trauma through play, stories, or drawings
- Aches and pains with no apparent cause
- Irritability and aggression
How PTSD affects your nervous system
When your sense of safety is shattered by a traumatic event, it’s normal to have bad dreams, feel fearful, and find it difficult to stop thinking about what happened. For most people, these symptoms gradually lift over time. But this normal response to trauma becomes PTSD when the symptoms don’t ease up and your nervous system gets “stuck.”
Your nervous system has two automatic or reflexive ways of responding to stressful events:
- Mobilization, or fight-or-flight, occurs when social engagement isn’t appropriate and you need to defend yourself or escape the danger of a traumatic event. The heart pounds faster, blood pressure rises, and muscles tighten, increasing your strength and reaction speed. Once the danger has passed, the nervous system calms your body, lowering heart rate and blood pressure, and winding back down to its normal balance.
- Immobilization occurs when you’ve experienced an overwhelming amount of stress in a situation and, while the immediate danger has passed, you find yourself “stuck.” Your nervous system is unable to return to its normal state of balance and you’re unable to move on from the event. This is PTSD.
PTSD self-help tip 1: Get moving
As well as releasing endorphins and making you feel better, by really focusing on your body and how it feels as you move, exercise can help your nervous system become “unstuck”.
- Any rhythmic exercise that engages both your arms and legs—such as walking, running, swimming or dancing—works well if instead of focusing on your thoughts, you focus on how your body feels.
- Notice the sensation of your feet hitting the ground, for example, or the rhythm of your breathing, or the feeling of the wind on your skin.
- Rock climbing, boxing, weight training, or martial arts can make it easier to focus on your body movements—after all, if you don’t, you could get hurt.
- Aim to exercise for 30 minutes or more each day—or if it’s easier, three 10-minute spurts of exercise.
Spend time in nature
Pursuing outdoor activities like hiking, camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and skiing helps veterans cope with PTSD symptoms and transition back into civilian life. Anyone with PTSD can benefit from the relaxation, seclusion, and peace that come with being out in nature. Seek out local organizations that offer outdoor recreation or team building opportunities.
PTSD self-help tip 2:
Self-regulate your nervous system
Learning that you can change your arousal system and calm yourself can directly challenge the sense of helplessness that is a common symptom of PTSD.
- Mindful breathing is a quick way to calm yourself. Simply take 60 breaths, focusing your attention on each out breath.
- Sensory input. Just as specific sights, noises, or smells can instantly transport you back to the traumatic event, so too can sensory input quickly calm you down. The key is to find the sensory input that works for you. Does listening to an uplifting song make you feel calm? Or smelling ground coffee or a certain brand of cologne? Or maybe petting an animal works quickly to make you feel at ease? Everyone responds to sensory input a little differently, so experiment to find what works best for you.
- Reconnect emotionally. Reconnecting to uncomfortable emotions without becoming overwhelmed can make a huge difference in your ability to manage stress, balance your moods, and take back control of your life.
PTSD self-help tip 3:
Connect with others
Once the fight or flight reflex has been triggered, face-to-face connection with people who make you feel safe and valued is the quickest, most effective way of bringing your nervous system back into balance. The kind and caring support of others can be vital to your recovery. Look for someone you can talk to for an uninterrupted period of time, someone who will listen to you without judging, criticizing, or continually being distracted. That person may be your significant other, a family member, a friend, or professional therapist.
If connecting is difficult
No matter how close you are to the person or how helpful they try to be, the symptoms of PTSD that leave your nervous system feeling “stuck” can also make it difficult to connect to others. If you still don’t feel any better after talking, there are ways to help the process along.
- Exercise or move. Before chatting with a friend, either exercise or move around. Jump up and down, swing your arms and legs, or just flail around. Your head will feel clearer and you’ll find it easier to connect.
- Vocal Toning. As strange as it sounds, vocal toning is a great way to open up your nervous system to social engagement—even if you can’t sing or consider yourself tone-deaf. Sit up straight and with your lips together and teeth slightly apart, simply make “mmmm” sounds. Change the pitch and volume until you experience a pleasant vibration in your face. Practice for a few minutes and notice if the vibration spreads to your heart and stomach.
- Volunteering your time or reaching out to a friend in need is not only a great way to connect to others but can also help you reclaim your sense of power. Joining a PTSD support group can help you feel less isolated and alone and also provide invaluable information on how to cope with symptoms and work towards recovery.
PTSD self-help tip 4:
Take care of yourself
The symptoms of PTSD can be hard on your body so it’s important to take care of yourself and develop some healthy lifestyle habits.
- Take time to relax. Relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, massage, or yoga can activate the body’s relaxation response and ease symptoms of PTSD.
- Avoid alcohol and drugs. When you’re struggling with difficult emotions and traumatic memories, you may be tempted to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs. But substance use worsens many symptoms of PTSD, interferes with treatment, and can add to problems in your relationships.
- Eat a healthy diet. Start your day right with breakfast, and keep your energy up and your mind clear with balanced, nutritious meals throughout the day. Omega-3’s play a vital role in emotional health so incorporate foods such as fatty fish, flaxseed, and walnuts into your diet. Limit processed food, fried food, refined starches, and sugars, which can exacerbate mood swings and energy fluctuations.
- Get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation exacerbates anger, irritability, and moodiness. Aim for somewhere between 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. Develop a relaxing bedtime ritual (listen to calming music, watch a funny show, or read something light) and make your bedroom as quiet, dark, and soothing as possible.
Helping a loved one with PTSD
When a loved one has PTSD, it takes a heavy toll on your relationship and family life. You may have to take on a bigger share of household tasks, deal with the frustration of a loved one who won’t open up, or even deal with anger or disturbing behavior. The symptoms of PTSD can also result in job loss, substance abuse, and other stressful problems.
- Don’t pressure your loved one into talking. It is often very difficult for people with PTSD to talk about their trauma. For some, it can even make things worse. Never try to force your loved one to open up. Comfort often comes from your companionship and acceptance, rather than from talking.
- Let your loved one take the lead, rather than telling him or her what to do. Take cues from your loved one as to how you can best provide support and companionship—that may involve talking about the traumatic event over and over again, or it may involve simply hanging out together.
- Manage your own stress. The more calm, relaxed, and focused you are, the better you’ll be able to help a loved one with PTSD.
- Try to prepare for PTSD triggers. Common triggers include anniversary dates; people or places associated with the trauma; and certain sights, sounds, or smells. If you are aware of the triggers that may cause an upsetting reaction, you’ll be in a better position to help your loved one calm down.
- Don’t take the symptoms of PTSD personally. If your loved one seems distant, irritable, angry, or closed off, remember that this may not have anything to do with you or your relationship.
- Educate yourself about PTSD. The more you know about the symptoms, effects, and treatment, the better equipped you’ll be to help your loved one, understand what he or she is going through, and keep things in perspective.
- Take care of yourself. Letting your family member’s PTSD dominate your life while ignoring your own needs is a surefire recipe for burnout. You need to take care of yourself in order to take care of your loved one.
Professional treatment for PTSD
Treatment for PTSD relieves symptoms by helping you deal with the trauma you’ve experienced. A doctor or therapist will encourage you to recall and process the emotions you felt during the original event in order to reduce the powerful hold the memory has on your life.
- Explore your thoughts and feelings about the trauma
- Work through feelings of guilt and mistrust
- Learn how to cope with intrusive memories
- Address problems PTSD has caused in your life and relationships
Types of treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy involves gradually “exposing” yourself to feelings and situations that remind you of the trauma, and replacing distorted and irrational thoughts about the trauma with a more balanced picture.
- Family therapy can help your loved ones understand what you’re going through and help the family work through relationship problems.
- Medication is sometimes prescribed to people with PTSD to relieve secondary symptoms of depression or anxiety, although they do not treat the causes of PTSD.
- EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) incorporates elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy with eye movements or other forms of rhythmic, left-right stimulation, such as hand taps or sounds. These work by “unfreezing” the brain’s information processing system, which is interrupted in times of extreme stress.
Finding a therapist for PTSD treatment
When looking for a therapist, seek out mental health professionals who specialize in the treatment of trauma and PTSD. You can ask your doctor or other trauma survivors for a referral, call a local mental health clinic, psychiatric hospital, or counseling center.
- Choose a PTSD therapist who makes you feel comfortable and safe.
- If a therapist doesn’t feel right, look for someone else. For therapy to work, you need to feel understood.

There are a few things that we need to survive. Here they are in order of importance:
Food – Water – Good Clean Air
Although food is listed as one of the things we need to survive we often overlook the type of food or how much we’re eating. We either take in too much, too little or what we’re eating doesn’t have the minerals and nutrients that the body really needs to generate real energy. Fasting is one of the most powerful ways to cleanse and revitalize the body, but it is also one of the most challenging to complete. Here are some fasting tips that can help make fasting easier for you:
It is ideal, but not mandatory, to start any long fast on or at the beginning of the new moon phase.
Why on the new moon?
The parasites within the system are least active during that time, so you’ll have fewer cravings for foods like processed sugar, fast food etc.
How we define long varies by each individual, some might think five days is long, while others may think a day is long. It is suggested that you fast at least once a week, but if that is challenging than once every two weeks or once a month. It’s important to give the body at least one day so that it can reset the glycogen levels and finish breaking down food from previous days.
When you’re just getting started with fasting and have never deliberately gone a full day without eating food, then you want to start off slow. Start by not eating until 12 pm one day, then the next time you fast go until 3 pm, and once you’re able to successfully do that give a full day a try! Try to do a fast at a time where you don’t have a lot of physically demanding things coming up.
Fasting is a time of regeneration. Your body is essentially focusing all of its energy on digestion and removing the toxins within. The less physical and emotional stress you put on the body, the better your fast. You want to take baby steps to build your ability. With some patience and practice, you’ll be going full on Breatharian in no time!
Fuel your other channels with premium foods.
Your other channels are your eyes, ears, and nose.
For your eyes, watch positive and encouraging TV or videos. For your ears, listen to healing frequencies and uplifting music. For your nose, fill your space with healing aromatherapy, or if you can go outside around some trees and just breathe in deeply.
You may not be eating “food” in the classic sense of the word but you are still in-taking things through your various channels, so make sure they are quality things that are supporting you in your task.
Whenever you feel a hunger pain remember to drink fluids.
Aside from water, drink teas, vitamin enriched drinks, and natural juices. For example, organic pressed apple juice is excellent for increasing bowel movements.
By drinking plenty of water you may feel less physically hungry because most hunger pains that we feel are actually our body telling us we are dehydrated.
Many other people struggle with what can be called “boredom cravings” where you may not be hungry but you want to taste and chew on something. These “boredom cravings” are a lot easier to deal with than hunger pains.
4. Be Merry!
Take it easy, stay positive, and be compassionate to yourself.
Your body will be going through a lot physically, mentally and emotionally during this time.
Remember to show yourself a little bit of extra love and attention.
Have fun with it, let your Secret Energy family know you’re fasting and that you could use some emotional support.
We are here with you to support and cheer you on along the way!
Normal things that happen during a fast (if you feel these it’s OK!):
Sensitivity to extreme stimuli
Some benefits of intermittent fasting:
General cleaning of the vessel
There was a man back in 1903 named Gilman Lowe that managed to lift over 1,000 lbs while fasting on one meal a day.
Ripley’s wrote about him in a news clip.
