I feel it. For me, it comes in waves with little breaks in between the waves. The breaks have been getting smaller and smaller though in the last few
years! I definitely see it affecting everyone around me, whether they understand it or not. Every so often I try to explain it to someone in whatever
way I think they're open to understanding.
However, I don't think it's negative. I don't think it's a portent of disasters or violence. I just think it feels INTENSE! It is STRONG and permeates
me on all levels - physically, emotionally, mentally. And you can't fully put your finger on exactly what it IS and how it works.
I DO think that it can feel like a deep fear or dread at times. But other times it can feel like a beautiful, joyous feeling. To that end, I think it
depends on what's going on inside US when it washes over us, and our own inner state, or ways of reacting will determine how we perceive this wave.
I think a lot of people become fearful when they feel it because it permeates down to such deep levels within us and carries a charge that we innately
feel is so strong, that even if it's good, we can react with fear because we inherently feel this wave is affecting us to the core and threatens to
change everything. I think that we feel this wave with parts of us that we are usually only subconsciously aware, AS WELL AS our entire conscious
mind. In that way, we sense that THIS IS BIG!
But again, I think it comes down to us and our individual states as to how this wave affects us or manifests in us.
I notice that in the "break" periods, I usually feel much better than I did before each wave. So this wave seems to be making things better. It's just
that DURING it, it feels intense, almost like a gigantic psychotherapy session where all factions of negativity within us are being purged. And when
you hold on too tight to the things that we usually cling to, it makes it harder and scarier. But I DO see some people in a veritable rapture
resulting from this wave, whether they know it or not. I think they're the ones who are going with the flow.
In a more esoteric sense, I see this "wave" as something that is washing over the entire planet, washing over humanity, and bringing us to a new level
of awareness, a new level of consciousness. And like it or not, the wave continues with or without our consent. Sure, I think one of the possible
consequences of this wave is disaster, violence and upheaval and destruction. But I also think one of the possible consequences is unity, a happiness
we have never known before, and a fuller understanding of existence and creativity. And as I see it, we have already passed the cusp between these two
consequences, and are residing in the more positive one.
I agree with the other person who said that Occupy Wall Street is one of the manifestations of this wave. That's a good thing, as I see it. World
events are mirroring this exactly. It doesn't mean the ride will not be rocky, but I do think we're on the better path.
Wow - I have to add this after I already posted this: when I finished typing this post and hit "reply", I checked my email, and I got an email from
one of those petition sites that emails me, and THIS is the first paragraph:
"Something big is happening. From Tahrir Square to Wall St., from staggeringly brave Avaaz citizen journalists in Syria to millions of citizens
winning campaign after campaign online, democracy is stirring. Not the media-circus, corrupt, vote-every-4-years democracy of the past. Something
much, much deeper. Deep within ourselves, we are realizing our own power to build the world we all dream of."
