I'm not sure why, but I have been feeling like we all should be stocking up of food, water, and supplies. That includes weapons. I don't think
the world is coming to an end but I just can't explain what I feel. I can't get it out of my mind. I am even one of those girls that doesn't really
like guns but I'm feeling like we're gonna need them.
I do feel something bad may happen soon. Maybe not even anything that people have been talking about. Has anyone else been having this feeling? I
pray that I'm just being paranoid, that there's nothing to these weird feelings i've been having.I know I sound lame but It's been bothering me
and just thought if I could talk to some one about it I might feel better. Thanks for listening
As others on here have said, many at this site (and other sites) speak of these 'bad feelings' when they believe they're being told to stock up on
food, water, etc. I do not question that you or others are getting these feelings, but I often wonder why people who receive these messages/feelings
believe the messages/feelings are 'bad.'
I often wonder if you and others who have these feelings consider that it could be a 'good
' thing you are being told by the Higher
Power to do something for yourself and your loved ones?
As another poster stated, several federal agencies have been telling people to have emergency supplies on hand; even up to 3 months worth, in some
cases. There are over 308 million Americans - the federal agencies cannot possibly take care of everyone, right?
It is our individual responsibility to take care of ourselves and our loved ones. So, rather than see it as a 'bad' feeling, perhaps you could see
it as a 'good' thing that Someone cares enough for you to burden your heart with a responsibility that could, ultimately, save you and others.
Look at what is going on just right now: the current hurricane is taking the same track Katrina took 7 years ago; we are having swarms of EQs in
California, there is serious drought in thousands of counties across the Country and there have been (and still are) fires going on. What if, just by
some random coincidence, Hurricane Issac hits with a terrible vengeance while California simultaneously erupts in the worst EQs in history? We cannot
know if that will happen, can we? It's probably not likely, but it would certainly be possible. How can law enforcement, federal agencies, the Red
Cross, rescues, etc. be in both places at once? They simply cannot.
And, certainly not least, we are approaching the maximum of the current solar awakening cycle, which is said to peak some time between now and 2014.
Science cannot predict whether or not a big EMP will strike nor how long it would take to have the grid back up and running. And, since nothing can
be done about it, why worry?
So, while we cannot change or control the weather and/or nature/earth/solar cycles, we can at least listen to the little whisperings we receive and
heed them. Later, you can say 'thank you' for this good advice you were given or, if you don't need the stored food, all items that are not out of
date can be donated to homeless shelters, women's shelters, missionary services, etc.
Maybe it really is a GOOD feeling you've been given, but all the doom and gloom that is published makes it seem 'bad?' How good might you and
others feel to know you've listened to the urgings you feel to prepare and you have food, water, a few medical supplies - things that will help
yourself, your loved ones and even total strangers - in the event of an emergency?
Life happens. It is not a 'bad' thing to be aware of it and ready, just in case. Just another perspective for you to consider. =)
