The Great Unslept

Published

on

pathToPhenomenalHealthThe following was taken from Sam Graci’s book The Path To Phenomenal Health, regarding sleep. In today’s world sleep seems to be that which we do not take seriously because we see it as having little value, whether monetarily or health wise. We are under the impression we can catch up on sleep when in fact our current system doesn’t allow for it.

Sleep is not a waste of time. Take time to reflect on your lifestyle. Ask yourself: Is my lifestyle appropriate for my optimum well being? One of the main reasons most people are exhausted is because they are in sleep deprivation. The National Sleep Foundation encourages adults to get between 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. If you do not get sufficient sleep, you will accumulate a sleep debt that becomes too big to repay, yet the average North American gets less than seven hours of sleep a night and 68% are classified as sleep deprived. This resulting sleep deprivation is linked to negative moods, aggressiveness, daytime fatigue, decreased productivity and an increase in both domestic and workplace accident rates.

To be able to sleep deeply, you must sleep in a room that is as dark as possible. Receptor cells both in our eyes and on our skin monitor the amount of daylight that is entering the eyes or reaching the skin. If your skin and eyes receive even a small bit of light from illuminated clocks, blinking DVD players, nightlights, or street lights that come through the curtains, your body sends a message that you still need to be alert and attentive. It is only in complete darkness that the body can send a message that everything else is asleep so we do not have to be alert and can naturally fall into a deep sleep. It is only in deep dark sleep that your pineal gland will synthesize the hormone melatonin, which is responsible for putting us into a deep rejuvenating sleep. If you do this you will sleep as nature intended you to.

Most of us don’t want to say goodnight to fun and responsibility. The telephone, the internet, email, ebay, and the one hundred television channels all rob us of sleep. We have extended the wear and tear of our waking day and shortened the restorative dark phase of the circadian cycle through artificial light.

Every night we move further and further from the 9 to 10 hours of sleep that the adult got in 1920. Each weekday we get 1 hour and 36 minutes less, on average, than the 8 and a half hours that sleep experts recommend. Each weekend night we receive 1 full hour less.

By the end of the year, we are short 458 hours – almost three full weeks of sleep. During an 80 year life span, we fall short and enormous 36,640 hours or 218 weeks worth of lost sleep. We are the great unslept, working our way through life on the verge of sleep bankruptcy. Chronic inadequate sleep affects 70% of all adults.

What are the consequences of being sleep deprived? In 1940 only 20% of north americans died from a combination of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. In 2006 nearly 90% will die from a combination of cancer diabetes, heart disease and stroke. The increase in these degenerative disease coincides and grafts exactly with our getting less sleep, staying up later because of artificial light and eating more processed refined foods.

As you sleep in a deep and regenerative delta state of 3.5Hz brain waves, your brain is relaxed and open to accept your unconscious dream state. Your brain at this time can process new information and purge excess information, leaving you refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated the next day.

Woody Harrelson Shares A Powerful Video: ‘Thoughts From Within’ He Calls It

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Woody Harrelson shares some spoken word with a deep message.

  • Reflect On:

    How do you view our current world? Does it truly resonate with you? Is it something you want to support? If you could put your energy into a world of thriving abundance, would you? Then why so much energy into the way things are?

I sit here today having been reminded of a Woody Harrelson video after watching a movie he acted in. I recalled the first time I saw this video. It was one of the first realizations I had, about 9 years ago, that many celebrities also go through life with trials and tribulations of the average person. Perhaps not in all ways, but certainly in many. This is an obvious thought of course, but sometimes not all that common.

When I saw this video, I remember thinking, wow, I love what he is sharing, and coming from his place of influence this truly has a powerful message. This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within.

In the video Woddy lays out a spoken word masterpiece that touches on all of the main aspects of our current society. If you truly take the time to listen, there is much to reflect on. And of course, there is an inspiring side of it all too.

This one is a bit of a throw back, but it’s a good one. Enjoy it!

New Film: David Icke Has Been Waiting For This For A Long Time, It’s Here!

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Collective Evolution is co-producing a film about David Icke with the filmmakers who brought you Unacknowledged. The film is partly shot and has worldwide distribution.

  • Reflect On:

    If you want to see this film made, consider donating to the crowdfunding campaign. In order to finish the film we need to raise more funds.

When you think of someone who has gone through what was likely the most difficult public shaming one could possibly go through, you may think of David Icke if you know his story.

In the 90’s, Icke was experiencing a spiritual awakening. One that not only brought him a greater awareness of himself and who we truly are, but greater awareness about our world, who runs it and how it all works. After appearing on national Television and telling the world that a group of reptilians are involved in advising the deep state elite of our world, he was laughed at publicly for many years.

Over time, aspects of David’s message has been proven true, and his following has grown as more and more resonate with the many amazing truths he has helped to bring forth. David is a dot connected and profound researcher. If you are into exploring consciousness and conspiracy theories, it’s like you’ve heard of him or have been influenced by his work.

He influenced my journey early on as I was first awakening 10 years ago, and this is why we’re excited to be co-producing an incredible film about David with the team that brought you Unacknowledged.

Filming on this project began a couple of months ago and is humming along nicely. An early 2019 release is still on the books and worldwide distribution is in place. But we need some further help with funding to finish some of the filming as there are some exotic and important locations we wish to visit.

With your support, we can produce a world-class film that will take you around the globe to explore exotic places that hold profound clues to this cosmic puzzle. We would like to bring David to places such as Chichen Itza in Mexico, Bran Castle in Romania, and the Vatican to discuss the hidden meaning and secret histories encoded in the art, architecture and symbols.

We’ve already raised over $21,000 but we need to get as close to our goal as possible to make this a film we know can reach the masses.

Please help support David and this film by donating to and sharing the crowdfund.

Josh Radnor From How I Met Your Mother Just Started A Conscious Band with Ben Lee

Published

on

You might be here because you are a fan of the hit TV show, How I Met Your Mother, or maybe you have fond memories of blasting “Catch My Disease” in your car on a hot summer day. Whatever the reason may be, you are about to discover a lesser-known side to actor-writer-director Josh Radnor and Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee—who now form the musical duo Radnor & Lee.

In this very first episode of Uplifted Life’s new Redefining Success Podcast, Kosta Stoyanoff and I had the privilege of having a conversation with both of them over Skype only a few days before they left for their Brazil tour. We talked about their new musical venture, the effects of having achieved success and fame at a young age, what true success ought to be, spirituality, meditation, self-development and more! Playing the hosts was definitely out of our comfort zones, but we are glad we did it and were able to extract some valuable insights from these two amazing human beings.

There is a rumor circulating that they are a religious born again band because they don’t shy away from using words like word God in their lyrics. The truth is that they do not subscribe to any particular label and are simply fascinated by life’s bigger questions. In our 30-minute conversation with them, we found them to be incredibly grounded, intelligent and wise individuals who simply strive to get back to the basics of what really matters in life and care about becoming the best and most compassionate version of themselves. It was awesome to chat with two public figures who choose to use their influence to spread a positive and conscious message through their art!

Our intention with the Redefining Success Podcast is to collect gems of wisdom from individuals who see beyond our culture’s materialistic idea of success and have discovered a more fulfilling, whole and healthy view of what it means to lead a truly successful life. We believe that doing our part in helping rewrite the cultural story surrounding success can inspire a positive change in how we lead our lives—from our relationships to the way we do business.

Like Uplifted Life for more uplifting content and stay tuned for more episodes!

Hope you enjoy the conversation and make sure to share it to inspire others!
