Hacking Into Your Happy Chemicals: Dopamine, Serotonin, Endorphins, & Oxytocin

http://theutopianlife.com/2014/10/14/hacking-into-your-happy-chemicals-dopamine-serotonin-endorphins-oxytocin/

“Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins are the quartet responsible for your happiness. Many situations can trigger these neurotransmitters, but instead of being in the passenger seat, there are ways you can intentionally cause them to flow.

Being in a positive state has significant impact on your motivation, productivity, and wellbeing. Here are some simple ways to hack into your positive neurochemicals:

Dopamine

Dopamine motivates you to take action toward your goals and gives you a surge of reinforcing pleasure when achieving them. Procrastination, self-doubt, and lack of enthusiasm are linked with low levels of dopamine…

Break big goals down into little pieces. Rather than only allowing your brain to celebrate when you’ve hit the big finish line, you can create a series of little finish-lines for frequent dopamine release. And it’s crucial to actually celebrate—buy a bottle of wine, or head to your favorite restaurant whenever you meet a small goal…

Serotonin

Serotonin flows when you feel significant or important. Loneliness and depression are present when serotonin is absent…

Reflecting on your past achievements allows your brain to re-live the experience. Your brain has trouble telling the difference between what is real and what is imagined, so it produces serotonin in both cases. Gratitude practices are popular for this reason, they are reminders and mental pictures of all the good things you’ve experienced. If you need a serotonin boost during a stressful day, take a few moments to reflect on your past achievements and victories…

Oxytocin

The release of oxytocin creates intimacy, trust, and strengthens relationships. It’s released by men and women during orgasm, and by mothers during childbirth and breastfeeding… Oxytocin is the glue that binds together healthy relationships.

Often referred to as “the cuddle hormone,” a simple way to keep oxytocin flowing is to give someone a hug. Dr. Paul Zak explains that inter-personal touch not only raises oxytocin, but reduces cardiovascular stress and improves the immune system…

Endorphins

Endorphins are released in response to pain and stress, and helps to alleviate anxiety. The surging “second wind” and euphoric “runners high” when running are a result of endorphins. Similar to morphine, it acts as an analgesic and sedative, diminishing your perception of pain.

Along with exercise, laughter is one of the easiest ways to induce endorphin release…

Aromatherapies: the smell of vanilla and lavender has been linked with the production of endorphins. Studies have shown that dark chocolate and spicy foods will cause your brain to release endorphins.”

They’re Trying to Ban Another Harmless Plant [Kratom] That Helps People

http://truthstreammedia.com/

“What’s more of a health crisis to the American people? 15 people who mixed a plant [Kratom] with other drugs, anti-depressants and pharmaceuticals and they died of a comminatory effect, or over a hundred thousand people who died taking legal drugs as directed, or the thousands upon thousands of people who die every single year from prescription pain-killer overdoses? What’s the bigger crisis here?

The reason that this is happening right now… is because of this: Between 2008 and 2016, pharmaceutical companies synthesized three different opioids from Kratom – the ‘dangerous horrible drug’ the DEA wants to add to Schedule 1 and the FDA wants to ban. It’s so ‘dangerous’ and so ‘horrible’ that pharmaceutical companies synthesized it and patented the synthesized alkaloids from this plant, and that is why they want to ban it, because they know that people aren’t going to buy the synthesized pharmaceutical version when they can get the real, actual, natural plant.

This is disgusting, and it should piss everyone off… If we become a country that allows another harmless plant that actually helps people to be added to a schedule where they can ban it and put people in jail for this, to try and force everyone to take poisonous pharmaceutical concoctions, then we really are a country of total slaves…

The bottom line here is that they’re trying to ban another harmless leaf. They want to take away the natural substances so that you can have your legally approved fake one. The bans are not about keeping anyone safe. If the system wanted to keep people safe, they would restrict the prescription drugs that have killed hundreds of thousands of people in this country. It’s about insuring that people will have no natural alternatives to healing themselves except for giant pharmaceutical corporations who synthesize their products to ensure addiction and death. The war on drugs is a war on us.

To leave your comments on Kratom and the FDA’s puke-inducing level of hypocrisy, call them at 888-INFO-FDA (888-463-6332) and dial 3, then 4.” ~Melissa Dykes

Upgrading Your Mind

https://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2016/08/upgrading-your-mind/

“Think of your mind as a piece of technology that you own – a combination of hardware and software. This technology is powerful, but you can also improve upon its current functioning…

As we mature and learn to think consciously, we can wield greater control over our mental training and thus our mental performance. We can recognize and diagnose problems in our thinking. We can find better and stronger mental patterns and retrain our old ones. We can effectively become smarter and more capable by using our intelligence to upgrade our intelligence. 

If you’ve ever consciously captured a new skill, such as playing a musical instrument, figuring out how to use a new app, or learning to eat a different diet, then you’ve already experienced the benefits of mental upgrading. But have you considered how many other ways you could train your mind to gain abilities and increase performance? Have you tackled some of the most fundamental upgrades that could add tremendous richness to your life?

Let’s consider some of these foundation-level upgrades:

Sleep Mastery
Accelerated Learning
Turning Fear Into Confidence
Boosting Your Productivity
Making Good Decisions Efficiently
Turning Your Inner Critic Into an Inner Coach

The nice thing about mind hacking is that one change unlocks another, then another, and then another… Don’t settle for sluggish, defective mental software. Upgrading your mindware may not be as easy as upgrading an app on your computer, but it is doable.” ~Steve Pavlina

How Psilocybin Mushrooms and Plant Medicine Can Heal Humanity and Transform Our World

https://wakeup-world.com/2017/08/26/how-psilocybin-mushrooms-and-plant-medicine-can-heal-humanity-and-transform-our-world/

“Human beings can easily buy into the drama of an unawakened ego and live in a state of deep unconsciousness where regrets from the past and worries about the future take away the power of presence. As a result, the discord in our energy fields becomes magnified and contributes to the collective unconsciousness.

What plants can teach us is the power of being as well as harmonious co-existence with each other and nature. When we bring consciousness into every moment, become the observer of what is rather than getting caught up in the mental stories, and choose to be at ease with our inner reality and who we are, we are also lifting the collective…

Your stories define your reality, and not the other way around. In order to change how you experience an unfavorable reality, it is worthwhile to examine the stories you tell and be open to give the experience a new meaning – this is what conscious creation is all about…

We are all Creators. The journey of spiritual awakening is never about learning how to create because we are born with the knowing, but about letting go of our conditioned beliefs, fears and doubts that stand in the way…

Plant medicine may not give you all the answers you are seeking. However, when taken with humility and responsibility, the right intentions as well as in a safe setting, what it does is it will open the doors of consciousness and wake up the deepest memory of who you are so you can experience reality from the perspective of an Empowered Creator, aka, your True Self.”

Cancer Cure Suppressed for 80 Years: They’re Finally Admitting Royal Rife Was Right

http://truthstreammedia.com/2017/08/08/cancer-cure-suppressed-80-years-theyre-finally-admitting-royal-rife-right/

“How many people have needlessly died from cancer that could have quickly, painlessly, and inexpensively been cured by Rife technology in the years since his research was suppressed? It’s a horrifying thought…

The reason the average person still believes dangerous and toxic chemotherapy actually “cures” cancer today is linked to the same greedy force behind why the majority of people still fuel their cars with gasoline despite the fact that much more efficient, inexpensive, and environmentally sound alternatives have existed for decades but have also been suppressed until recently.

Greed, however, can’t keep the truth hidden from humanity forever… especially those truths which are so fundamentally obvious…

Albeit quietly, we now have researchers coming out of the woodwork to verify the power of resonant frequencies to kill viruses and bacteria and to cure even life-threatening diseases, including cancer. Two doctors in 2014 published a paper in Global Advances in Health and Medicine titled “Life Rhythm as a Symphony of Oscillatory Patterns: Electromagnetic Energy and Sound Vibration Modulates Gene Expression for Biological Signaling and Healing”. In it, they concluded:

Hence, not only chemicals and physical energies like EMFs and sound vibrations, but even our emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and the way we develop our intentions and life rhythms can deeply transform our gene expression patterning at the cellular level. This finding may disclose unexpected chances to develop self-healing processes based on further utilization of this remarkable human potential

After 70+ years, we all know how well the Big Pharma model of filling ourselves up with chemicals and ripping out our vital organs has served us… These aren’t “cures.” That system doesn’t heal.

It’s only a matter of time before the medical and scientific communities will be forced to admit Rife was right or risk losing the last few shreds of credibility they have in a world where its become all too obvious we’ve been purposefully held hostage in a technology bubble… to our own detriment.”

5 Issues to Unify Us in the Divide and Conquer Era of Trump

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2017/06/23/5-issues-unify-us-divide-conquer-era-trump/

“Over the past few years, there has been an explosion in awareness like never seen before… Many people have abandoned the idea of partisan politics and the media which supports it. Thanks to the internet a people’s media emerged and started to clear the air of the lies and deceptions that the old media had been plagued with.

However, as this last election came to a close, the perspective shifted and took us a few paces backwards in many respects. Incidentally, the focus was placed on Trump rather than the issues which were being fought so hard throughout the Obama and Bush administrations. Once again, the debate has become about the integrity of those in power instead of actual real world issues that affect everyone.

Whatever you believe Trump’s motives are, it’s important that we don’t get so caught up in arguing over something we have no control over that progress made on real issues is lost. What the country needs right now is a massive healing, [we need] to learn how to set minor differences aside and work together to solve our problems, instead of looking to government to solve them for us.

Whether you’re left, right, something in between or nothing at all, you can always become more informed and act to make a difference in the world we live in. [Below is] a list of 5 problems which desperately need fixing and can be solved without government if enough people work together to achieve a solution.

1- Peak Oil Threatens Energy Security and Self Sufficiency…

2- Big Agriculture Seeks to Undermine Our Health and Food Sovereignty…

3- The Federal Reserve has Unlimited and Unchecked Power to Print Money…

4- Corrupt Politicians are Making it Illegal to Feed the Homeless, Demanding Dependency on Government and Outlawing Compassion…

5- Just SIX Companies Control 90% of What We See and Hear in the Media…

Clearly being engulfed in partisan politics is not getting us anywhere. We’re going to have to start listening to each other again and break the political molds in order the start caring about real issues again.”

Matrix Deprogramming & The Prohibition of Nature’s Red Pill

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2016/06/20/matrix-deprogramming-and-prohibition-of-natures-red-pill/

“The Matrix has as it’s primary objective the task of disconnecting us from the soul… so that we may be used as batteries and as automatons to fuel the lavish existences of our controllers. It achieves this through desensitization by overexposure to violence, hatred, fear, pollution and scarcity, while limiting deep connection to each other, to nature, and to the most humane experiences…

We are prevented from realizing the depths of our enslavement by the limits placed on our spiritual discovery… and we find little, if any, solace, in the corrupt and tired religious traditions of the modern world.

Pharmaceuticals, by design, dull the emotional being and narrow the range of human feeling. Alcohol is recommended and pimped in our culture to further numb the senses and amplify negativity.  Food is denatured, devoid of nutrition, and poisoned to weaken the body and darkly color the mind…

There is a genuine ‘Red Pill’ that reveals, confronts and combats the tyranny of the matrix and each of its attempts to debilitate the mind, body and spirit. It is called iboga, and it is prohibited by law in most western nations…

Renowned for its ability to cleanse and decalcify the pineal, opening wide the third eye, iboga reaches out to us in crystal clear inner vision, allowing us to see with intense clarity the events, memories and repressed suggestions, that subjugate our goodness and harden the heart…

Revered for its ability to interrupt addiction to drugs, self-destructive behaviors and toxic thought processes, the medicine offers desperate liberation for those stuck in perpetual conflict with themselves. The highly alkaline shamanic medicine also performs a complete physical and mental detox, leaving in its wake lightness and ease in the body, along with intense mental clarity and focus…

It is precisely due to this genuinely holistic capacity to heal and enlighten that our rat-race, driven-from-the-top culture has shunned, persecuted and even outlawed the usage of iboga: for the matrix cannot and will not permit freedom of this depth and significance.

The matrix simply cannot have a world full of free-spirited, happy souls, for it is impossible to enslave someone who lives with certainty of their own power and purpose, liberated from fear and loving of the self.”
