Top 12 Conscious-Alternative Media Outlets to See Beyond Mainstream Narratives

Conscious Media

As a collective, we are positioned amongst a legendary pathway to stride toward truth and liberation or comfort and deception. While proving to be unsettling, many are waking up to an old world’s design made to perish. At the same time, certain forces wish to keep secrets hidden beneath the majority’s powerful minds. It is surprising how the opinion of a small few can be blown up as the only truth. Mainstream media tends to dwell on death tolls of viral outbreaks while ignoring human trafficking counts, the fluoride trials, and other newsworthy events.

In the end, the truth always makes itself known. Whether we are up to the challenge or not, our eyes will no longer remain closed. There is an array of conscious-alternative media outlets to counter the mainstream agenda. It is available for those who are willing to seek out the facts, think critically, and ask questions. Along with Flux Air, this list is meant to serve as a resource for readers to discover honest voices, underreported stories, and unpopular opinions. 

The Conscious Resistance

“The Conscious Resistance Network is an independent media organization focused on empowering individuals through education, philosophy, health, and community organizing. We work to create a world where corporate and state power does not rule over the lives of free human beings.”

Under the passionate direction of holistic activist and journalist, Derrick Broze, The Conscious Resistance is a network featuring news articles, interviews, and documentary series centered around truth. While this platform is a phenomenal addition to your alternative media intake, TCR also poses self-reflective insights defining what it means to resist consciously. In a nutshell, the rebel without a cause no longer wanders aimlessly. In our current climate, to rebel means to think for oneself, challenge outdated beliefs, and live a life of pure freedom. 

Waking Times

“Personal change begins with awakening from contemporary consciousness. To jump-start this process, we provide perspectives that will evolve your understanding of the world beyond what’s presented by the mainstream narrative. Our original content will introduce you to new ways to look at life, outside of the current paradigm.”

The main goal Waking Times strives to achieve is “awakening the highest expression of the self” through the lens of various ideas and modes of thinking. Their articles span from imaginative perspectives on our current reality while presenting options to challenge the current societal landscape. Waking Times is an excellent outlet to catch up on important news, personal change, and visionary approaches to the future.

Collective Evolution

“Collective Evolution is a news-media and education company that creates content to explore how humanity can shift our consciousness and way of being to evolve beyond the personal and global challenges we face.”

Founded by Joe Martino in 2009, Collective Evolution is an alternative media outlet reporting on news and personal transformation. This is an exceptional publication that approaches issues from a solution-based standpoint. In addition to reporting facts, Collective Evolution provides food for thought in a way that inspires critical thinking and challenging of status quos. You’ll read each article with a set of tools, preparing you to delve deeper into truth topics. In my perspective, this website brings me back to college seminars where debate and open conversation is highly encouraged, participation required, and new ideas forged.

Evolve and Ascend

“Evolve and Ascend is poised at the crossroads where ancient wisdom and ideas converge. This is a place where artists and visionaries can share knowledge and collaborate to reshape the world. Life will always evolve. Consciousness will always ascend. Here you can find the space to Evolve and Ascend.”

A platform for the imaginative doers and dreamers to inspire evolutionary thought patterns, Evolve and Ascend publishes content for the seeker. Founded by author, public speaker, and worldwide traveler Jennifer Sodini, Evolve and Ascend shares ideas for shaping a new reality stemmed from ancient wisdom. This publication lends insights to those who wish to create an external world built from an inner oasis.

The Last American Vagabond

“The Last American Vagabond was established to allow a free flow of information in regard to current issues that face the world. The focus being on many such issues that are purposefully and discreetly culled by those who stand to lose, either financially or professionally, due to their relevance. It is this site’s primary objective to bring these issues to an open forum and or bring about awareness of these topics of paramount importance.”

Radical transparency and honesty remain at the forefront of The Last American Vagabond’s mission. As mainstream media continues to prove, businesses and corporations are pulling strings when it comes to the release of information. Founded by award-winning journalist and truth-seeker Ryan Cristian, this alternative media outlet features stories and multiple art creations to shed light on what needs to be seen, heard, and understood. The Last American Vagabond also features work written by Derrick Broze (founder of TCR) mentioned earlier in this piece.

Truth Theory

“Truth Theory are new media here to replace the old outdated disempowering paradigm. The way we perceive consciousness is changing and we deliver content that is congruent with this change. What you focus on amplifies and we feel that bringing honest empowering content to a wide audience creates an honest and empowered society.”

Truth Theory was founded in 2019 by blogger, activist, and entrepreneur Mike Sygula. With a team of revolutionary and free-thinking writers, Truth Theory reports on challenging topics and inspirational motives that are being birthed into our world. This publication is built on and follows seven main pillars, including honesty, solution-based thinking, thought-provoking material, educational intent, pure motives, empowering readers, and challenging the narrative. 

Spirit Science 

“Team Spirit – the creators behind Spirit Science – has the intention to share and discuss spirituality in an open-hearted way, with respect for all walks of life and honoring that which is beautiful and divine within all of us.”

Spirit Science is a top-rated organization that offers information for both the beginner and seasoned truth-seeker. Spirit Science offers animated videos educating viewers on spirituality, energy work, ancient teachings, and mystical truths. The allure of this conscious media network is found in its way of taking complex mysteries and engagingly presenting them.

Educate Inspire Change

“We believe that to create real positive change in this world we need to first change ourselves, this might mean living more sustainably, eating more healthy, understanding yourself better…ultimately anything that improves your state of mind as this will help to make the world a better place. 

Upon creating this conscious media platform, founder Kash Khan wrote down three words with powerful meaning, “Educate Yourself, Inspire others. Change the World.” While reports of current events are useful and crucial to be aware of, it is just as important to know about inspirational news such as citizenship being granted to trees and solutions making a real difference. EIC shares an assortment of articles, videos, and has recently expanded to podcast interviews covering science, technology, spirituality, and truth. 

Gaia Media Network

“Answer life’s deeper questions and go beyond the mainstream narrative with Gaia— a member-supported media network of truth-seekers and believers empowering an evolution of consciousness. Explore over 8,000 ad-free, streaming titles that challenge modern paradigms and allow you to manifest the reality that defines your being.”

Another well-known yet hidden gem to explore for insightful and inspiring information is the Gaia Media Network. Dubbed as the “spiritual Netflix,” Gaia offers video series, interviews, and documentaries spanning across topics like alien activity, the secret space program, mystical teachings, and spiritual practices. Featuring respected thought leaders such as Dr. Greg Braden, Dr. Theresa Bullard, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton, and more, Gaia offers a seat in the university of consciousness. Unlike the typical Netflix & Chill night, viewers might feel inspired to crack out a notebook and pen to take notes and highlight book recommendations. 

The Elephant Journal

“We’re dedicated to sharing the good life beyond the choir, and to all those who didn’t yet know they give a care about living a good, fun life that’s good for others, and our planet. The mindful life is about yoga, organics, sustainability, conscious consumerism, enlightened education, the contemplative arts, adventure, bicycling, family…everything. But mostly it’s about this present moment, right here, right now, and how we can best be of benefit, and have a good time doing so.”

This independent news outlet shares truth on societal events while holding a light-hearted approach. The Elephant Journal focuses primarily on publishing useful tips and information dealing with mindfulness, suffering, grief, love, freedom, and spirituality. Aside from their published content, supporters can also join the community by contributing their work or attending workshops. 

Conscious Life News

“We believe that the majority of the mainstream “news” on this planet is negative, and is motivated by corporate greed and/or nation building. Since what we focus on as a society is what will ultimately grow stronger, at CLN, we openly choose to focus on positive, forward-thinking happenings and information.”

Based in Sedona, AZ, Conscious Life News operates in a vortex of high vibrational energy reporting on information meant to offer solutions to blindly accepted modes of reality. With a global team of writers, CLN embodies what it means to operate from a love vibration world-wide. Topics span from government and policy to conscious evolution and environmental well-being.

The Mind Unleashed

“If ordinary people really knew that consciousness and not matter or material possessions is the link that connects us with each other and the world, then their views about war and peace, environmental pollution, social justice, religious values, and all other human endeavors would change radically. We seek to disseminate and inspire out-of-the-box limitless potential that exists inside us all.”

Another alternative media outlet that offers and encourages free thinking is The Mind Unleashed. With a taste for the arts, the universe, and societal happenings, this website reports on current events with an underlying tone merging imagination with fact. TMU is pushing for readers to break free from the mold. 

Stay Free & Independent

This list is a culmination of alternative and conscious media sites that have stepped up to the game in times of uncertainty. Real journalism does not rely on the direction of biased corporations and clouded judgment. It is built on the adherence of golden ethics and a commitment to spotlighting the truth. Independent publications, such as Flux Air and those mentioned above, are an integral component to distinguishing clarity apart from the foggy mainstream realm. As a devoted writer myself, I encourage you to continue asking questions and thinking for yourself—no matter where you get your information.
