Thank you for sharing all of that. I have my own understanding of what you were going through but I have some questions, if you don't mind.
Was this all happening around 2010?
If not, how old were the two of you when it started?
Did either of you experience "exploding head syndrome"?
Weird question here but does "C-52" mean anything to you?

The shift IS happening...but at what rate? THAT is the important question.

It's funny we know, we sense something but it just ain't specific, but the feeling is there.
Now here is the answer
That's what's happening and on a massive scale. You just have to take a step back and see the mess we've created and all the debate going around because it's that SHIFT we've been talking about for the last couple of years.
Yes, it is happening, no doubt about that.

What exactly are you all suggesting is happening?
(maybe not everyone is talking about the same thing..?)
I'm asking because in my immediate circles and experience,
something wierd is happening. I don't understand it, I am just observing it, and hadn't planned on writing about it because I am afraid people are going to think I have lost my mind... or at least that I am bi-polar.
Last week I was hitting a low point in mood, in which I really had trouble finding any motivation to keep living,
then, I started to feel motivated to try. I made effort.... and it started to feel less heavy.....
then yesterday, I woke up and it was like I was in a different world!
Not only is it sunny and warm, I am filled with energy and optimism! I did an amazing amount of work before 9 AM, suddenly getting through work that I was convinced a month ago was too big to be attempted.
I did the most heavy workout I think I have done in a year. Though I have recently been struggling with asthma, it started to become difficult to breathe at some point and then... it was like I "broke through" and it disappeared.
After an hour of cardio inside the gym, I just walked out and started walking outside, actually sorta dancing in my earphones (not caring how many people saw me doing so as they drove past).
The whole day was glorious, and was like one of those times I wonder if I had had a transfer into another reality... or timeline, I think people here like to discuss?
I kept noticing details around me I never saw, the world was different, colors were brighter, I was feeling more open and real in all my interactions with others... I ate only raw veggies and fruit (not normal for me) and they were so fulfilling! In the evening I had some chilled blueberries with nothing else and all I kept repeating was "this is the greatest thing I have ever eaten in my life!!!"
I did not use any illegal drugs, I smoked nothing, and I am not normally bi-polar, or manic depressive.
But hell, that perhaps could kick in at any age.
The wierd part is that apparently people all around me are having the same experience.
I saw on face book a bunch of friends posting things like "I feel happy today. Just pure unadulterated happiness."
-Even from people who seem to never be happy, and if they were, normally wouldn't admit it on facebook.
I called a few friends to sort of see if those claims were authentic - hear their voice for real. Yep, they were on a high like me.
Some of these people are not near me in locality, but on the other side of the world, so scratch the idea we've had our water drugged or something.
It is morning here, it is incredibly sunny and warm again, the trees have their colorful autumn leaves on them and I was sure those had all fallen already... we're in mid december! They were bare a week ago! I don't know what to think.
But I am off to go jogging and dancing again, then hubby and I are going to go buy things and visit our children and grandchildren. I don't know what happened between the dark place I was in a week ago, and this heavenly state I'm in now. But I'd like it to have some sort of explanation besides that I am mentally ill.

That shift you have all been anticipating...that change.
It has been slowly happening for a while but, it is now starting to show itself.
It's a slow and steady thing but, none the less...it has started.
It is here now.
Anyone else sense it?

I am stunned that my thread has gotten as large as it has and honestly a bit humbled ( I don't even think that is the word
I started it after having a moment in time where I was able to reflect on the things going on in the world lately. It felt like things were changing at a pace that seemed to be more rapid than usual.
