A reader asks:
[Does] TC (The Committee) have any specific advice for weathering the current and upcoming upheaval events to the planet specifically regarding empaths (like me) who truly suffer mentally and physically under these circumstances?
Paraphrasing the reply for speed; everybody is empathic to a degree, the differences are acknowledgement of the effect, itself derived from willingness to recognize it exists. Saying you're an empath means you're far along with acceptance of it, which you can turn to your advantage. Blissfully unaware people might SEEM to be more insulated from the energy of major events, but they are not. The energy emerges at a different moment for them and it can be to the detriment of the person, in some cases. They can have symptoms of panic, anger, anxiety or fear AND not know why.
Step one, says The Committee: stop using words like "truly suffer mentally and physically". Such talent, ability and understanding are NOT an affliction, disease, debilititating condition or problem unless framed that way. Using negatively connotated words to describe a positive, enlightened aspect of your ability does you no good.
Here's an example they give; you visit or camp in a rural area. A wild boar or two, maybe a pack, comes snooping around, attracted by the smell of something you've brought. You scare the animal(s) and one comes on the offensive (fanged, wild hogs can turn aggressive and dangerously so, unlike the pink farm variety.) You are forced to fire a gun to protect yourself. The muzzle blast scares away the boar. Are you disturbed and do you suffer because of the noise, the sudden fear you felt and the good scare you put in the animal? Or do you look at the positive outcome to a risky encounter, glad that you were prepared and unharmed, and also relieved you were not forced to harm the attacking animal(s) to protect yourself? If the animal was badly hurt or killed, are you to blame for protecting yourself?
You can't control animal(s) any more than occurrences of serious events, such as Hurricane Maria, which has just done great damage to Dominica, St. Croix in the Virgin islands and Puerto Rico, or yesterday's Mexico earthquake. YOU CAN control your reaction by actively, affirmatively choosing to see the positive side of the feelings & sensations washing over automatically.
Packing & unpacking boxes, I just recently found and re-read parts of book I bought in 1993. Up to that time, its author had contributed to my favorite car magazine (and has occasionally since) leading me to his many excellent books.
As I ran over these quotes, The Committee leaped in to tell me they were channeled to the author. The purpose was to describe the human tendency & proclivity for organization of society and why this approach & view are a significant current source of tension, stress and desire for something to change. Change is coming and in fact, occurs as I write & you read these words, however effects and perception that change has happened, will not be obvious until nearly or entirely finished.
On with the quotes:
"Authority has always attracted the lowest elements in the human race. All through history, mankind has been bullied by scum. Those who lord it over their fellows and toss commands in every direction and would boss the grass in the meadow about which way to bend in the wind are the most depraved kind of prostitutes. They will submit to any indignity, perform any vile act, do anything to achieve power. The worst off-sloughings of the planet are the ingredients of sovereignty. Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy the whores are us."
"No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power."
- P.J. O'Rourke, Parliament of Whores, ©1991 Atlantic Monthly Press, New York.
Who should decide what stupdity, ignorance and greed really are? Love of power is a lot easier to define. How many world leaders since the early 1990s, elected and otherwise (e.g. Barack Obama, Saddam Hussein, Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, Haffez Assad and Tony Blair to name a mere half dozen examples) fit well the 3 adjectives? They all ADORE the power we supply; the final line of the first quote refers.
Now reported are shortages of gasoline across Texas. Other places in the USA?
A good deal of what's produced at Texas and Louisiana refineries makes its way across the nation by pipeline, those are unaffected this time, if not moving much fuel.
A significant event causing not simply a shutdown but permanent closure of a significant portion of refining or transport capacity, will cause prices of fuel to shoot up until equilibrium is re-established; supply increases and/or demand falls. Repeated events will cause an ever increasing rise in the price.
We're seeing one effect of The Shift now, to be repeated. You are aware.
Hurricane Harvey smacked Texas hard, the leftovers did their thing to the Houston metropolitan area and now to Louisiana. I hope nothing but good rain comes until it dissipates.
My family & I survived physically unscathed, house and cars undamaged but I am surrounded by many victims. My dog fell suddenly ill just as every veterinarian for miles closed down but impassible roads, starting two hundred feet from my driveway, made that a moot point. Guardian Angel intervention got her to a pet emergency room yesterday.
Lest there be any doubt, this event is indeed part of The Shift often discussed here.
A reader asks:
We have talked about how it's a possibility that many of us could help fast forward the Shift. Maybe not have to go through some of the changes coming, if you know what I mean. That if there were enough of us, we could pit our heads together and make a difference? I've been thinking if it's possible, could we give it a try? Is it worth talking about on the blog? Or would we want to...
Yes, if enough humans wished to change the course of such events, that could be accomplished easily. Paraphrasing The Committee, they say: this can be achieved first if enough humans first believe there is a shift occurring and that it will also continue, with many events to take place as part of it.
Once established the belief in what is occurring, then a separate, independent belief must be adopted that there exists collective influence over them, which is created by individual ability to control, added up cumulatively. The total effect of individual desire and wish will have enormous influence, enough to change course in a big way,
Once these two ingredients are in place, a small percentage, no more than single digits, of the human population could materially alter the direction, intensity and frequency of events in ways deemed positive by all concerned.
"How many hundreds of millions can & will be convinced this way?" is what they specifically said ending their observation and answer to your question.
The moon blocked the sun yesterday across North America. The effect was strange; from shadows into sunlight caused no immediate warmth on the skin, which for this time of year is WEIRD. I had to stand in the sun for at least 15 seconds before I could feel a difference, which usually takes ⅓ of a second. The sky looked like a brighter version of a full moon at night - a much less blue sky.
A reader asks:
Since yesterday's eclipse is still a prominent topic across social media, and the different news programs, etc. I thought it would be interesting to ask The committee what different eras of peoples believed eclipses foreshadowed .
and also how, if anything, does the eclipse affect us and our environment, downloads? etc.
Says The Committee (paraphrasing for speed): Before knowledge of astronomy was developed, eclipses were seen as the onset of a disaster.
The effect on human environment is precisely as observed, no more or less. The Committee asks what is meant by "downloads" - telepathically delivered information for humans? There is no effect to this process from an eclipse. "Do you mean something else" they ask? (They say they know exactly what you're asking but want you to clarify your question to yourself, in order to clarify your thinking, thus the answer will be more logical to you.)
They also say, there is an increase in gravitational pull but it is slight; the forces of physical attraction are in effect anyway; the interspersion of the moon between the sun and Earth blocks some gravity as much as is added. This effect can trigger an earthquake where one was already likely to occur, something humans cannot yet detect, tectonic plate pressure and points.
