Quiet, But Not Calm

//Quiet, But Not Calm

Quiet, But Not Calm

quietIt’s mighty quiet on the internet, at least in the places I frequent.  The background chatter has flat-lined nearly and it’s almost eerie.  Oooooo…

What chatter there is is almost all about the call back into the same patterns of thinking that got us so deeply into the world mess we’re trying to transform now.  Just…not…interested…

The eerie feeling isn’t fear, it’s like the whistling of wind through the cracks somehow.  My interest in the old is not holding me into that mix anymore and my ability to take my focus off it is strong now and steady, instead of shifting in and out of it like a flicker.

My focus is more and more is on the dreaming of the world I want instead of the world I can’t stand anymore and never agreed to to begin with.  I’ve always been dreaming of a better place, but the big shift here is that it used to be in a kind of desperate way, like a dream that could never come true.  (Sob!)

The deep longing is still there, like before, but the desperate surety that it could never happen has taken leave of me.  I couldn’t be more grateful!

The edge of the seat feeling is growing steadily, and the quiet isn’t calm.  Instead, it feels to me like a heightening hum.  Perhaps it is the mournful hum of the old energies as they are transformed.  Like the moan that comes from deep within as the knot in the muscle is massaged into pliability again.

My intuit has been saying there is big, fat, juicy change afoot.  I feel like I’m standing in the eye of the storm and the storm is a mighty transformer, transforming and purifying for the greater good.

I also feel that this storm will pass without me being outside of the eye of it, but this has yet to be seen.

    I concur with your internet observations. The “net” is quiet. I notice even Goldenageofgaia, is lacking the breadth of spiritually uplifting commentary and channels.

    Are we collectively holding our breaths? Were we looking at September 01, 2013, as a similar date to 12/21/12? I know I am still holding out for more of an instantaneous switch vs the slow progression we seem to be wading through. But, I am definitely giving no interest to what is going on in the Middle East, or other potential areas of conflict. Instead, I continue to offer all my love and positive intent for all of Gaia.

    Be Well & Happy!

    Hi, Bill!

    I am so certain now that all bets are off for the old crusty stuff that used to be considered just the way it is. We’re all of us on the GAoG platform feeling it strongly. There is something right there ready to break like the crest of a wave.

    Surf’s up!

    Ahhh, Andrea,

    As I was going through posts this morning (clicking delete, delete), I was feeling a little like “gosh, nothing here interests me…what’s “wrong” with me?” As usual, you have the ability to “speak” these feelings in wonderful ways!

    I am so grateful that you started this blog. I haven’t commented however, your post “My Avatar” was another that had me doing a dance spin. So many times recently I have been unable to put words to my feelings and I am profoundly grateful for your gift of doing so. I half jokingly tell others that I am preparing for telepathic communication…only Half jokingly 🙂

    Reading your posts here, and also on the GAoG group, is like eating a piece of the best dark chocolate for me. I am so happy to be in the “spiral” with you…differently and, yet, together.

    Love and Hugs,

    Andrea – I’m acutely sensitive to energies and have felt rather deflated the past four days, due to my own stuff and probably a lot coming from other people. Being a channeler, nothing came through this past weekend for me as I could not feel settled or “in the space” for receiving even after doing a nice meditation. There is a lot of concern, anxiety and fear out there about the possibility of the US going to war yet again. The people don’t want it, but they’re not sure that their message is being heard by Congress or the President. Am working to keep calm and balanced, but it is challenging right now. And like a few of your other commenters, I, too, find less that interests me. It is an interesting phenomena.

    Thanks to you and the rest of the Golden Age of Gaia team for the wonderful presentation you put on daily.

    I am also feeling tired every day and not following much on the net lately. The world wide concern over the possibility of war concerns me too due to my empathic feelings . But as we all direct our focus to peace and a peaceful resolution ,,we will change this mood that everyone is in for the better ,,it is up to us folks to make this change .

      Hi, JD!

      So awesome for you to drop by. Intent and focus are so important now, aren’t they? But we remember how to do this and I feel we are up to the challenge too.

    Hi Andrea! I very much feel the same way that you do, like that pause before the change in the tide…and the boredom with what is out there…that moment always precedes for me great change so yeah, getting my big girl boots on and ready for anything, while focusing on love and peace and holding the highest divine light! Hugs and love your words as always! 🙂 Alex

    You might be at the Eye, my dearest Andrea, but I feel like I’m riding the very crest of the whirlwind. Oh, yes, big juicy change is afoot and has already begun — and each of us is in our most Perfect place. Yee-haw! Light and Love.
