question: I think I am losing my mind. I can't focus because every where I look, things are falling apart. I am so afraid for the Earth and our ability to think we can stay around here. I have a job and I have money, but I am not happy and I need you to tell me something, anything that makes me think living is an okay thing. I hope this is not too much of a question to ask. Thank you ahead of time!
I love your question! And I would say you are on the pulse of the entire nation with your feelings and question. So many people out there are feeling the exact same way that you are. Not everyone, though. Some know that this is exactly where things need to be to bring about change. And I hope that by the end of this writing I give you, you will be one of the few who knows this is all apart of the plan.
Okay, so you are NOT losing your mind. Don't go to a doctor that just wants to put you on meds. The meds will only keep you under mind control. They will numb you so you are out of touch with what is really going on in the moment. We all need to ween ourselves of the pharmaceuticals at this time because they are only doing us more harm. It is imperative that all means of escape are let go bit by bit in our lives. They keep us dumb, numb and unaware of what has been going on for decades. In order to wake up and truly come together and make a stand on all this chaos that you see, and has you feeling like you are losing your mind, we must be present and here and ultra sensitive to the messages and signs we are receiving. They are showing up for each and every one of us every day. And if you are drunk all the time because you can't face the truth, then your vote doesn't count. You won't be standing up for change because you will be off escaping in a bottle of gin. Have a drink of celebration after a great move, but not as a means to escape from all the pain that you can not bear to look at. We need you here and present for the this great battle that is before us.
So one reason you are feeling so desperate is because there is so much information out there sharing the stories. These stories have been out there for decades but before there was total control over what hit the newspapers and TV stations. Now we have the free speech of the internet and all the stories are coming to the surface. Before we couldn't know about global warming unless "they" let us know. Before we couldn't know about the 600 dead penguins that just came in on the beaches in Uruguay (as of June 8, 2011). Before we couldn't find out about all the dead sea life that is coming in on the beaches in LA and MS (check out our section here called 'The TRUTH of the BP Oil Spill'). Before, that information was kept hidden, but now it is blasting us from all sides. And while, yes, it needs to come out and to our attention; it can also be a bit of a load to take in. I always get emals from people who say how hard it is to look at the BP Oil spill pictures that are on this website. And I don't feel that way at all. But maybe that is why I have chosen to be someone who takes this all in and shares it with others. So when it becomes too much, take a break. But do be open to listening because we can't all turn a deaf ear.
Now why is all this happening? Why are there tornadoes and fires and flooding and earthquakes and volcanoes exploding everywhere? Quite simply, Mama Earth is finally speaking up. Mama Earth is finally standing up and saying, ENOUGH OF THE ABUSE! ENOUGH OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ME AND MY CREATIONS! We have been warned for years that this would happen if things did not change. If we could not change our ways and be completely honoring of the Earth and its inhabitants, then we would lose our privileges. Here we go. We are all getting sent to the principles office for acting up. We have poisoned her waters with our litter and oil and corexit. We have poisoned her skin with all the pesticides and fertilizers and things like Roundup we put on our lawns to make them pretty, pretty, which we now know causes birth defects. And all for the purpose of impressing others with our fancy, gorgeous lawns. We have polluted and violated every single thing on Earth. We have exploited and abused her children. We have tortured her animals and treat them with no respect. She is pissed and she has every right to be, huh? Now true that a lot of these abuses seem most out of our control. We can't control the Oil rigs or the Nuclear plants or the feed lots. But we have been in control of our own actions. We support the feed lots by eating at places like McDonald's. We support child exploitation in other countries by buying things at Wal-Mart. We support the poisoning of the land by using Roundup. In our own small ways we are all raping the Earth. And we have been warned that we needed to change, but the problem with humans and their egos and their desire to not make changes is that until the shit hits the fan, they don't budge. It takes major catastrophes to make them change their willful ways. But the warnings have been out there. This is not like we are all being fired without first receiving warnings. We have all been written up over and over and now she says, the buck stops here.
So all these Earth changes seem so scary and like the end is near but you have to understand that this is just the balancing of what has been so out of balance for so long. It is like when you have held something in and not been honest with someone about it and then you just explode because you held it in for so long. And always it does create a release and hopefully a better relationship with feelings being shared. All these Earth changes are going to feel awful as they happen but there is so much beauty at the core, believe it or not, within each and every one of them. One of the main purposes is to open us to community! People sure do open their hearts and homes when these sort of catastrophes happen. I loved the story of the people from New Orleans going up to Joplin, MO to offer support and goods. People are so separated in this world and it is imperative that we come together as brothers and sisters to be of aid to anyone in pain and discomfort. That is one of the purposes of these Earth changes. Another is for the right action to come about from the destruction of the wrong action. Fukushima awakens us to the dangers of Nuclear activity, although in smaller units it is not such a bad thing. But we, our unborn children, the sea creatures and birds and animals will pay the price for this lesson. It is very unfortunate. But how else would we have learned? Had the BP Oil Spill not occurred we wouldn't be thinking along the lines of lessening our dependency on oil. We wouldn't be changing our old habits of driving big huge powerful SUV's and thinking along the lines of how to use our vehicles less. Trust me that Mama Earth WISHES we could learn our lessons in a milder manner, but we have proven that we will not change until things get ugly. We still find it more important to have a shiny clean car and keep those lawns evergreen green, so next we will lose our water and we will have to ration ridiculously in order to be more honoring of our sacred water, giver of life. Fracking is another issue going on that is destroying our water sources and you are urged to stand up and voice your disapproval before it is all destroyed. There is a fire in Arizona right now that is the size of Phoenix and the largest fire in the states history. Mother Earth is pissed! But even the fire is doing a cleansing. Sage is always used to cleanse and purify areas. She is attempting to cleanse the area of the U.S. from Arizona to the East in the hopes that we can just make changes now before it gets even worse. We are still getting warnings. These aren't the big wig moves yet! She will separate the Earth and take millions of lives in one big swoop if we do not make changes now. All of these Earth Changes we are seeing are insignificant in comparison to what is on the way, IF we still do not heed her warnings.
So what can we do? We can learn to love one another. We can learn to not fight each other so much.
We can learn to bridge the separation that is in everything; the whole us guys against you guys. We can educate ourselves on how to recycle, to use less, to need less, to honor more of what we do have, to respect Mama Earth for all the amazing bounty she provides for us. We can make educated choices on what we will support and buy and bring into our household. We can ask more questions. We can flip the item over to see where it was made. Made in China. Well, that pretty much means human exploitation. Don't buy it. By not buying it, you are not supporting human exploitation and you are changing things.
And no matter what happens, know that this is absolutely a part of the higher plan. There are still avenues for change. The balancing act can be less than or more than. But the balancing will occur. And each and every one of you can be counted and can absolutely make a difference. Don't worry about trying to change others in this game we are in. Worry about yourself. Focus on YOU doing the right thing. When you do the right thing, your energy changes and others feel it. They will want what you have and when they come to you to ask what are you doing so different, you can then share. It is essential that you do not buy into the fear at this time as your emotions are the driver of your car of life. You have to TRUST that all will work out in the end and you need to find that voice deep within that says relax, it is all going to be okay. You have to use the power of your intention to always be seeing the best in things. You always have to trust and see that there is a higher behind the scenes action going on. Think about pruning and how if you didn't know what was going on you could be like, what are you doing, you are cutting it all off, it will die now! We are having a major pruning session going on in the world and even with all the animals leaving, they are leaving in peace as they chose this assignment to sacrifice their lives to teach us, the humans, to live ours in a better more honoring way. So what are you going to do about all this change? Are you going to see it for what it really is and make changes in your own life that always put the Earth first? And that too I guarantee you, if you put the Earth first and if you walk with integrity on your skin, then things will always come to protect you and keep you in an abundant state, even when things seem to be collapsing all around for others. You will be protected and provided for. If you care, you are on the right path. Now go out there and research some changes you can do yourself individually so Mama will stop her bitching!
Here is an article I wrote that I want you to read:
