Removing the Mask

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Longtime readers might notice I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been writing for the Weekly Awareness Guide but silent on the blog and social media.

Truth be told, I’m looking for inspiration. I’m unsatisfied with the way I’ve been writing and trying to figure out what I really want to do. This snippet from an astrological report by Simon Vorster and Jennifer Langstone explains it well: Continue reading

You

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

You are a gift from above with unique talents that make you who you are.

You are a spark of the Godly consciousness responsible for the most beautiful, terrifying, breathtaking things in existence, and you have more power than you think.

Like the rest of humanity, you have a purpose on this planet. You’re on a mission, and the mission is yours to define. For guidance on what you should do, I suggest looking in your heart.

What are you passionate about? How can you make the most powerful impact on the world while doing something you love? Ask yourself this question and you could very well discover your purpose.

Love: My New Religion

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

“Buddha was not a Buddhist, Jesus was not a Christian, Muhammad was not a Muslim. They were Teachers who taught love.” (Source)

Religion overcomplicates a simple message: live from the heart. Letting love and compassion guide your thoughts, actions, and intentions is the most authentic way to connect with the Source, as rather than forced conformity with a belief system, it brings about a natural evolution of the self.

The idea that devoting yourself to religion will bring spiritual rewards is an incorrect interpretation of the benefits of heart-centered living. We’re taught we’ll receive God’s gifts by changing who we are and conforming to what the church wants, when in truth, we can receive them by making a subtle yet powerful shift into the heart.

This way of life doesn’t make you wipe your personality clean so the church can reprogram it. Continue reading

Indications of a Global Shift in Consciousness

Indications of a Global Shift in Consciousness

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

A friend recently made a good point: the youth are partly responsible for helping others become aware of the global shift in consciousness taking place. The masses need to know what’s happening, and if you’ve experienced a spiritual awakening, there must be a reason for it. Young or old, you’re here to help.

The youth aren’t the only ones here on a mission to share what we know. This job is entrusted to people of all ages, but by educating ourselves, spreading knowledge, and supporting the struggle for freedom across the world, we can inspire more people to take a stand. We can energize this revolution.

With all this in mind, here’s my perspective on the consciousness shift and the love that drives it. Continue reading

Alchemy, Astrology, and Spiritual Transformation – Part 2 (Conclusion)

Alchemy, Astrology, and Spiritual Transformation – Part 2 (Conclusion)

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following for the 233rd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).

Last week, I gave a basic introduction to astrology and alchemy with the promise that in this next installment, we’d learn how the two are connected.

When researching their connections, however, I discovered an overwhelming amount of information that would take countless reports to cover. So, for the sake of length, we’ll check out some basic information on their connections and leave the more complex stuff for another time.

Have No Fear – Part 2/2

freedom-oceanBy Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

(Continued from part 1. Read full post here.)

Once you have an idea of the unique path you want to walk, love will inspire you to accept the challenge of fear. You’ll no longer doubt yourself when fear steps in the way, because love will be there to remind you you’re a spark of God who can persevere in the darkest circumstances.

Love and Service

Fear may be ruthless, but love is the opposite. Love is forgiving, welcoming, and understanding. If you let it express itself authentically, it will help you through your fear. It will help you keep on when you want nothing more than to give up, and it’ll consistently remind you why you’re doing this: to help others.

In truth, a fulfilling life is not spent pursuing one’s own interests. The path of love, which brings the understanding that we know nothing in the big picture, reveals that the most fulfilling life is spent serving others. Continue reading

Have No Fear – Part 1/2

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

Writing again after a nearly month-long slump, which included being sick with a 103-degree fever, I feel a lot of fear.

I fear failure, inadequacy, fatigue, laziness – the list could go on. I fear I’ll just stop writing one day and never pick it back up. This will obviously never happen, but the first step to healing this irrational fear is to shed light on it.

Right now, inadequacy and failure are two of my greatest fears. Although I know they’re irrational and success is assured if I keep going, the fear that my writing is insignificant or that one day I’ll decide it’s not worth it and give up has ironically kept me from writing.

I see now that to suppress this fear will only make it stronger, whereas being open to it will bring healing. Continue reading
