Re: F.O.G.
Thank you all for the comments and sharing your stories. I have a strong belief in connectedness and interconnectedness ....and I have seen many times this play out over and over in the things we share. I have walked what may best be described as an "organic" path: simple, healthful, close to nature. I am guided by intuition more than anything and go with what feels right.
Over the course of the last several months...I have been introduced to many different ideas and concepts of ascension, awakening, star seeds, many more....things I had not yet encountered. If it pulls at me...I follow. I have had many, many aha and YES!! moments. Many of you have been guides...leading me to discover many new and interesting things....for this I am very thankful.

Now...back to the birds! First Wow!! I remember many of you writing about birds in the past. That is probably why I felt comfortable bringing this up. There are so many avenues to explore here. Birds have always been a pretty positive thing in my life...I draw them in...feeders, I photograph them, pay attention to pairs on the property...and often times feel i make connection with them...that they come to share something with me: the hawk...most especially, cardinals...I associate with three very important women in my life whom have passed on. Most recently I had a moment with a chickadee and a bald eagle.

This encounter and the two previous...they had more of a negative vibe. I strongly believe in yin/yang--good/bad...you can't have one without the other.

I am wondering about the negative interferences associated with spiritual awakening. I know about internal energies...and I must say... I have had a rough couple of days...ones that have led to some self-doubt, discouragement and being down. I am aware that this opens one up to more negative energy.

To clarify a bit further...it's not if spiritual awakening can open one up for the negative...but rather...are "forces" for lack of a better word, that try to prevent us from awakening...or awakening further?? Would negative energies be capable of high jacking or taking the form of a spirit guide or messenger?

Hi Moxie ~

I am being very diligent on what I allow my senses to take in right now.

About the dark/negative forces lurking about, I feel that is why it is SOOO important to check your thoughts, check your energy, check your vibration because we are all manifesting our future right here, right now. If you are awakening and all that is pouring in through your eyes and ears is negativity that is what your awakening will consist of. We are being tested as the awakened ones right now, it is time to walk our talk, with Grace.

If we go out to the main forum and just read the tag lines of the threads, it is no wonder that everyone is about ready to implode. I cannot see how in any way this information is beneficial to humanity, especially us sensitives.

What if we gave it no attention? What if we allowed to play out what will play out and trust and have faith that we are all Divinely protected and are exactly where we are suppose to be? What if our energy was focused on a future that was exciting, vibrant, friendly and communal? Does reading those negative posts help us in any way?

We can not control what will be, all we can do is prepare and enter into it from the highest vibration possible. I am not saying to go back to sleep because we can not, however, now that we are awake we are responsible for what energy we allow in more than any other time in our lives.

Here is a simple test to see what is for your highest good and what is bringing you down... Read this thread any day, check what and where you are feeling the vibration.. then step out to the main forum and just read the thread tag lines, then check what and where you are feeling the vibration. You energy changes, it has to, we are not meant to live and thrive in negativity, it is a warning signal.
Listen to it because I feel it is going to really matter possibly more than any other prep in the near future.

New Sea-Level-Rise Modeling Forecasts Major Climate Impact to Low-Lying Pacific Islands

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Dynamic modeling of sea-level rise, which takes storm wind and wave action into account, paints a much graver picture for some low-lying Pacific islands under climate-change scenarios than the passive computer modeling used in earlier research, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey report.
A team led by research oceanographer Curt Storlazzi of the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center compared passive "bathtub" inundation models with dynamic models for two of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. The team studied Midway, a classic atoll with islands on the shallow (2–8 meters or 6–26 feet deep) atoll rim and a deep, central lagoon, and Laysan, which is higher, with a 20–30 meter (65–98 feet) deep rim and an island in the center of the atoll. Together, the two locations exhibit landforms and coastal features common to many Pacific islands. Managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, they are also among the world’s most important nesting and breeding sites for migratory birds and other wildlife.

"Passive 'bathtub' inundation models typically used to forecast sea-level rise impacts suggest that most of the low-lying atolls in the Pacific Islands will still be above sea level for the next 50-150 years. By taking wave-driven processes into account, we forecast that many of the atolls will be inundated, contaminating freshwater supplies and thus making the islands uninhabitable, much sooner," Storlazzi said.

Pain signature’: Scientists map aching and its intensity in brain
Biology, Health, SciTech, Science
In a breakthrough discovery, US scientists found a distinctive ‘signature’ on the brain when specific types of pain are felt. This new ability to ‘map’ pain could be used to determine the kinds of pain are felt by patients unable to articulate it.

Scientists could ‘see’ the pain experienced just by looking at a brain scan after taking real-time images of the brain’s immediate response, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). When researchers gave participants a painful ‘dose’ of heat, the fMRI charted blood flows through the brain, leaving a pattern – or ‘signature’ – of brain activity.

Re: F.O.G.
The storms are just about past me...so I'm off for bed. I had a couple of interesting experiences this evening I thought I would share.

The storms blew through here between 4 and 5pm. Most of them tracked to the north. There was one that split over the lake and had rotation to it...so I hauled the kiddo in her baseball helmet and the dogs up to the safe space. I know, I know...but a mind IS a terrible thing to waste!
Anyway after the storm passed...it was still light out. There was still some lightening and thunder...but underneath it...there was another sound...a mix between a groan and a hum...very vibratory. You could feel it. It was so strong...it was disturbing.

Not long after that I sat down with my computer on my lap checking news and weather when something caught my eye. It was still light out. It looked like a bird flying from left to right....then it flew from right to left. I raised my head and watched...and nothing. Then just as I put my head down...it happened again...left, right, left. I lifted my head again...nothing. Then one more swipe...just to the left. I happened about 4 times...and I would stop and watch...and nothing...then head down...it would happen again. Maybe a coinky dink???

Even more interesting...it's happened before. Once out my bedroom window....the same...back and forth and again out the deck doors. I thought I was seeing a shadow. I never get a clear look at the bird....I'm guessing it is a bird.

Stranger still...before it happened I had a series of two instances where strangers on different occasions..spoke to me of experiences they were having. Both mentioned flying things...or things that flew. One guy was very disturbed by his experience.

Birds...seem to be important in my life....I've always been drawn to them. This however...it somehow seems different....a bit menacing...it gives me a chill rather than comfort or a feeling that I need to pay attention.

Anyhoo...if anyone has any ideas...I'm all for exploring....
 Quoting: moxiechick


Oh my goodness Moxie,
We had that same storm system and I heard the same thing! I saw a flash of lightning and was expecting to hear the usual thunder roll, but what came next was not that! Is sounded like someone hit a steel drum and then it vibrated. This sound happened twice.
It sounded like there was metal above or in the storm clouds that was given off this vibration sound!

Ok freaky freaky freaky part...I then sat at my computer and thought I saw a black bird fly in the back door to my kitchen!

So glad you shared that! Thought it was just another crazy night!

Unbelievable!!!!!!

Now that is really weird, I was going to respond to MC that peripheral vision will become much more significant during and/or due to ascension. Then I see Mama's comment and now I'm thinking its something else entirely, and I'm not sure what.
 Quoting: Isis One


Hi Isis!
I'm actually thinking its a combo of things. It is something I'm catching in my peripheral .... It flies so I assume it's a bird. It is something I am associating with negative energy...it just doesn't feel right.

Re: F.O.G.
Fifty percent of the domestic honeybee population is dead, the greatest single-year loss of honeybees in the United States ever recorded. The dramatic loss of the bees is expected to affect consumers.

Colony Collapse Disorder has killed half of the honeybees in the United States this year alone.


LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Scientists and beekeepers have been baffled by Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) which is characterized by the sudden disappearance of the hive's worker population.

According to the USDA, Symptoms of CCD include few or no adult honeybees present, honey and immature bees (broods) remain present in the hive suggesting a sudden abandonment of the hive--a possible response to stress. However, the bees are never found elsewhere, they simply disappear and die. Usually, the queen bee is left behind but dies without establishing a new population.

The disorder has significantly affected bee populations since the 1970s with a sharp increase in losses since 2006. Now, as beekeepers return to their hives to prepare for spring pollination, they are finding that at least half of their bees are gone.

The 2013 year now marks the highest loss on record with at least 50 percent of all European honeybees in the U.S. reported lost to CCD.

The attrition rate for honeybee hives is normally around 5 to 10 percent per year. After 2006, that rate increased to about one third. This year, it is one half.

That one-half figure is a critical point beyond which many beekeepers think prices will be affected.

Bees are important because they pollinate most of the fruit and vegetable supply in the United States. They also produce honey, which is still widely consumed as a sweetener on bread and in a variety of other products.

Just what's killing the bees remains a mystery but beekeepers are beside themselves, often approaching their hives to find hundreds of worker bees dying outside the hives each day. As the bees die, farmers lose the ability to pollinate crops, reducing yields and thereby the food supply. Farmers are now projecting that the decrease in the supply of fruits and vegetables will be so great that prices will be impacted by the summer of this year.

A number of beekeepers blame pesticides for the loss of their bees, specifically as class known as neonicotinoids. Neonicotinoids are a form of pesticide that work by blocking the nerve endings in insects, paralyzing them so that they die slowly by starvation. Beekeepers think their bees are being exposed to the pesticides and are dying as a result.

Research done one dead bees confirms the pesticide is occasionally present.

This has prompted beekeepers to work together to sue the EPA for failing to ban neonicotinoids.

Others still think the causes could be more complex, a combination of natural and man-made factors which are contributing to the extreme mortality rate.

What researchers have widely observed is that bees are being exposed to a wider variety of chemicals in the environment that previously supposed. A virtual cocktail of pesticides and chemicals could be contributing to their demise.

Other research has looked into the possibility of diseases such as parasites or viruses, but no single factor has demonstrated the lethality that beekeepers are reporting.

Although the cause remains inconclusive, the effects are now beyond question. The dramatic reduction in honeybee population means fewer crops will be pollinated and farmers will pay more for their beehives this year. That means less food and higher costs for fruits and vegetables later in the year.

Of course, so few Americans still eat fresh fruits and vegetables these days, the impact will probably be mitigated somewhat by our extremely poor dietary habits.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan

Biggest solar flare of the year knocks out radio transmissions
NASA on alert for more after-effects of geomagnetic storm to satellites and spacecraft.


Early this morning the sun erupted, sending billions of solar particles into space at over 600 miles per second, raising the prospect of solar radiation storms above the Earth, according to NASA. A spokesman said the resulting emissions sparked a short-lived radio communications blackout on Earth. The radio disruption has since subsided. The appearance of the strongest solar storm of 2013 is part of an increasingly common sight as astronomers say this is connected to the sun's 11-year activity cycle. More intense solar eruptions are expected later in the year.

Re: F.O.G.
Thank you all so much!! Tink- I wish I could have avoided this brand of negative energy!! Unfortunately, this was one of those instances where I had to experience it....work through it....and find my way back. I know what's meant to happen, happens...and we have to accept our role...accept we've done what we can or what we are meant to do. I still question this...and thus where the self doubt comes in. Harder still, I seem to pick up when someone is being untruthful...it's those little discrepancies...the conflicts that sometimes others overlook that make it so glaring to me. I believe I am learning to cope with this as well...learning it is not personal...but a reflection of the other person's ego.
I think I am very close to an understanding about the peripheral vision or the bird/flying thing. BTW...my daughter was sitting on the chair today doing her school work and described the exact same experience...her bird was grey. Mind you...I have not spoken about his aloud...have only written down what I saw.

Again...thank you all~~

Much Love,

Im good! Yes, rough night here with Tornado sirens much of the evening. Dutch does live here too!

I think he was more closer to the areas that got hit bad!

No damage in my immediate area!

This is the storm that I heard that weird thunder!


Thanks for checking in on me!

That was almost exactly what I heard. I keep looking up thinking maybe it was a tornado....it was growling on and on. It was indeed weird!!

Re: F.O.G.
Thank you all for the comments and sharing your stories. I have a strong belief in connectedness and interconnectedness ....and I have seen many times this play out over and over in the things we share. I have walked what may best be described as an "organic" path: simple, healthful, close to nature. I am guided by intuition more than anything and go with what feels right.
Over the course of the last several months...I have been introduced to many different ideas and concepts of ascension, awakening, star seeds, many more....things I had not yet encountered. If it pulls at me...I follow. I have had many, many aha and YES!! moments. Many of you have been guides...leading me to discover many new and interesting things....for this I am very thankful.

Now...back to the birds! First Wow!! I remember many of you writing about birds in the past. That is probably why I felt comfortable bringing this up. There are so many avenues to explore here. Birds have always been a pretty positive thing in my life...I draw them in...feeders, I photograph them, pay attention to pairs on the property...and often times feel i make connection with them...that they come to share something with me: the hawk...most especially, cardinals...I associate with three very important women in my life whom have passed on. Most recently I had a moment with a chickadee and a bald eagle.

This encounter and the two previous...they had more of a negative vibe. I strongly believe in yin/yang--good/bad...you can't have one without the other.


I am wondering about the negative interferences associated with spiritual awakening. I know about internal energies...and I must say... I have had a rough couple of days...ones that have led to some self-doubt, discouragement and being down. I am aware that this opens one up to more negative energy.

To clarify a bit further...it's not if spiritual awakening can open one up for the negative...but rather...are "forces" for lack of a better word, that try to prevent us from awakening...or awakening further?? Would negative energies be capable of high jacking or taking the form of a spirit guide or messenger?

Moxiechick, after reading your post all I can reply is :

Yes and Yes. As far as birds, look in books and literature.. see how birds are represented. Some are messengers of love, light, and of the heavens and earth. Beacause of their wings they live in both realms Then there are the messengers that are of the darkness and foreboding and all that it contains. Black crows and such have always represented that as long as I can remember. I know they are in American Indian and other cultures, and that they are tied into the soul in those cultures. And that they bring messages.

It is hard with all the external engery that we have at this time to be "positive" and "in the light". The closer you get to "spiritual awakening" the harder it can be to remain "clear" if that makes any sense..

Much love and light to you and your journey hf

Thank you! I think things are becoming more and more clear for me. The pieces are starting to come together. Tink had some very wise words and also helped me see/pin point some places where I can grow.
