Tap into the Source

By Wes Annac, Editor, Culture of Awareness & Openhearted Rebel

There is a Source of energy, inspiration, and abundance we can all tap into, but we have to be aware of it first. It’s here waiting patiently for us to realize it exists, but until we can be open to it, it’ll sit at the edge of our perception and guide our lives without us knowing.

It’s difficult to become aware of something you can’t initially see, feel or sense, but the more you’re open to this Source, the more it reveals itself.

When it comes to spiritual terminology, I tend to use different labels to define the same things. For example: to me, there’s no difference between the higher self, higher consciousness, and the Source. There are differences for other people, but to me, they’re all constructs that help us conceptualize higher states of consciousness and the idea of a creator.

Despite that they all originate in the human mind, we can use them to connect with a higher power through meditation and other spiritual activities. Continue reading


The Throat Chakra: The Center of Self-Expression

The chakras are the subtle body’s energy centers, and they bring through the energy that’s responsible for our reality and the higher dimensions we have yet to experience. They connect us with our creator and our higher consciousness, and understanding them can allow us to tap into the energy that pours through them.

The throat chakra has to do with communication, self-expression and other qualities on which most creative people rely. It allows us to communicate our feelings about life, spirituality, society and anything we think is important, and it gives us the confidence to use our voice without worrying what other people think. Even if we’re misunderstood or rejected, we’ll know our desire to help the world evolve (and the work that results from it) is genuine. Continue reading

Most of us have an idea of the changes we want to see in the world, and our achievements would be unprecedented if we could get to a place in society where we could publicly strive for a better way of life. Not everyone’s interested in getting to this place or being recognized by society, but those in the conscious community who are interested have two goals in mind: waking people up and creating change. They don’t care about fame or fortune, and their mission to awaken the world is the main thing on their mind.

The point of everything we’re doing is to initiate change, be it inner or outer. We want people to see that an inner spiritual revolution is not only possible, but essential, because this would allow for the greatest revolution the world has ever seen. This won’t be a bloody revolution that ends in violence and death, and instead, it’ll be a revolution of the mind and heart. It’ll be motivated by love and spiritual awareness, and it’ll lead to a rediscovery of the social and spiritual truths that were hidden by the planetary elite.   Continue reading

Meditation: The Greatest Healer

I think everyone would benefit from meditation, because it gets us out of the monkey mind and introduces us to the Self and the vibrant spiritual reality so many of us seek without realizing that it’s already a part of us.

It reminds us that life isn’t so bad, despite how much we prefer to think otherwise, and beyond this world’s greed and negativity exist infinite higher dimensions of bliss, harmony and heavenliness unlike anything we’ve felt in our current state of consciousness.

I can only imagine what shape the conscious community would be in if we all learned to meditate, and most ‘spiritual’ people practice some form of meditation that’s unique to them. Music can be a form of meditation, for instance, and so can writing. Any creative act can become a meditation if we clear the mind and open up to our higher consciousness while we do it, and writer’s block encourages us to stop, open the mind back up and regain our presence and centeredness, thus allowing us to approach our work with a fresh perspective.

Being Aware of Awareness

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

“If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.”
― Leo Tolstoy (1)

A reader recently mentioned an interesting idea, which is that we can be aware of awareness.

How can we do this, you ask? From my perspective, the best way is to act on the things we become aware of. Awareness is a concept that doesn’t receive as much attention as it should, and if we’re more aware of it, we might make choices each day that are aligned with it. Continue reading
