This is really a Part 2 of “It All Adds Up” that I wrote on July 5, 2016.
It was when I went to get the link to the video I posted for you that day – and re-watch it – to share with you – that I noticed another video by the same interviewer who spoke to a guy named Gregg Braden. This is the first time I’ve heard of Gregg. In the last 6 months, I feel like the Universe is standing in front of me with a finger in each ear, tongue sticking out, saying “Nahner, Nahner, Naaahhh-ner“. I feel like somehow I’m the last to know everything. I’m crawling out from under the big, giant rock I’ve been hiding under and the sunlight is so bright I can barely see – but I feel everything connecting like a robotic Transformer all around me. Pieces are coming together and I’m just standing there, with my mouth hanging open in awe, as I watch the whole magnificent thing.
Everything is fitting into place.
For others around me, the world is falling apart. I understand why. It was many years ago that I made the decision to stop watching television – cold turkey. I distinctly remember hearing that it was the 10th Anniversary of the t.v. show “E.R.” – and according to the internet movie database (IMDB.com) the show ran from 1994 through 2009. If you do the math, that means I would have stopped watching t.v. sometime around 2004. It must have been in the Spring. I also remember most of everything that happened in 2003 because it was such a traumatic year for me. A lot of things changed that year for everyone, including myself, and giving up t.v. forever could have been one of them. I did the math back then and realized that I’d spent one hour every single week, sitting on my sofa, watching this show religiously. I know there were “specials” where they’d extend it to a 2-hour episode but I don’t know when or how often those happened. I can tell you that I watched even the re-runs all Summer – and if I wasn’t home, I “dvr’d” them so I could watch them later, even if that meant a marathon. If you total it up, this was 520 hours of my life that I would never get back. That was 520 hours minimum because I watched more than just E.R. at the time. I recall Seinfeld and Saturday Night Live and a random handful of shows I enjoyed watching too. This isn’t counting any of those – or the movies I watched on dvd or in the theatre. I decided at that moment that I could be doing something more productive with my life – like volunteering those hours in my community. I immediately set out to find a place more worthy of my time.
Full Steam Ahead.
I moved forward with lightning speed and never looked back. When I’d “bump into” a blaring television at the airport or waiting room, or lobby where I worked, it was as if alarm bells were going off in my head which made it physically hurt to listen to. And for the record, I am a rare bird who never gets headaches. I’ve only had 2 in my entire life – I had my last one as an adult when I ended up with a nasty ear infection in both ears. I had my first one at the age of 13 when I went to Seattle with an Aunt who accused me of being on drugs which was insulting to me because I didn’t even take aspirin! Of course, I was a teen and she automatically assumed that’s what all teenagers with a headache do, I guess. Looking back on it, it could have been a change in altitude. I was used to living in the 6,000 ft. sea level range and I was at sea level. It was also about the time I began having premonition dreams. I never understood them back then. I would just be telling someone about “that weird dream I had recently” and they’d tell me how it was an exact incident that happened to them or someone they knew in real life. I dismissed them all – never making a connection. This continued on for another 7 years. It wasn’t until I moved back to California (where I grew up part of my life) that they stopped, or I just stopped talking about the dream I’d just had because I didn’t really know anyone there that well. I became very private and never shared much about myself.
I had entered the corporate world.
I’m still not very good about sharing personal info about myself. This website is one of the few places you’ll hear about what I’m like and what my personal thoughts are. Most of those things I keep in my journals that I’ve been writing in, almost daily, for more than 35 years. I tried to stop writing in them at one point but that taught me what a valuable tool writing is for me – writing seems to be my form of emotional therapy. I have to release the words inside of me because if I didn’t, they’d eat me up from the inside out. Maybe “journalling” is my drug? It seems to be an addiction but it’s more like a release. I get the same sort of feeling when I pick up a paint brush and I have a blank wall or canvas in front of me, or when the seed catalogs arrive in my mailbox in the dead of Winter and I spend the next few weeks mapping out my seasonal garden with a pad and pencil in hand, staring out the window at the dark, grey sky. I actually ache inside having to wait for Spring to arrive because I yearn to put my hands in the ground to plant something. The thought of my homegrown fruits and veggies makes my mouth water and the intensity of that thought is almost more than I can handle when there’s still a foot or two of snow on the ground.
It was while I was watching the video interview (posted below) of Gregg Braden that made what I shared with you in my last post, “It All Adds Up” really click for me. He claims there’s a cycle of events on Earth – they ebb and flow every 56 and 17.7 years. And he goes on to say that our next event is due to arrive in 2017 – the peak of the 56 year cycle.
What goes around, comes around.
I’ve been studying astrology on the side for 25 years. It was this hobby of mine that helped me to understand others more. This study can even be applied to pets and places, or events like a wedding or the start of a new business for instance. It’s because of this knowledge that something inside of me clicked while listening to Gregg. I immediately went into stealth scientist mode and began to do mini research project. I couldn’t stop myself. I was up into the wee hours digging through what I could find on the internet. I found so much information, I can’t share it all here. I was motivated to record a video and post it to Utube but my inability to speak in front of a camera (stage fright???) stopped me. I did a little bit of math and mapped out some diagrams on the pages of my journal, including a Bell Curve. Here’s a mini exercise… Subtract half – the peak of 56 – 28 years – from 2017. It gives you 1989. It was in an instant that it hit me like a freight train… Just Google what I did…
Subtract another 28 years from 1989…
And you get the beginning – The year the Berlin Wall began construction.
I then subtracted 9 years from 2017. This gave me 2008. The year the banking industry collapsed in the U.S. and the “Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008” was instituted. Who could forget the bank bailouts?!?! Subtract another 9 years and you get the year 1999 – the year the world practically stood still because of all the hype that went into the year “Y2K” and it was predicted that computers – which our electronic society depended heavily on – were all going to fail because their programming wasn’t designed to “out-live” 1999 and still be in use by the year 2000. People where I lived were buying up food and supplies to last them for years! They were taking gun safety classes to get permits to carry a “concealed weapon” and they were leaving the urban areas to buy up acres of land in rural areas – far away from civilization – or anyone who might want to break into their home looking for food or shelter. Everyone was completely convinced the world was coming to a drastic end. New Year’s came and went and most people celebrated it by staying home in their makeshift bunkers. That’s how many people I knew at the time rang in the New Millennium. I had lived for most of my life outside the rather rural state of Idaho. I had a chance to see how much of the real world operated. I knew that it didn’t take a lot of effort to re-write a code to update software. The chances of collapse were slim, even though it was still a possibility. It would probably be an inconvenience, not a catastrophe. What I know now, however, is it was the beginning of something similar to the Berlin Wall of Wall Street.
I wasn’t surprised to hear from Gregg that events were cyclical. So is nature. Our whole environment we live in is based on a cycle – even the female human body or the growth of plants in a garden can be gauged by the phases of the moon. The Earth’s tides happen – twice a day – by the gravitational pull of the moon and can be documented in a “tide table” (well-known to scuba divers and sailors who can buy them in a booklet every year). It’s predictable. I believe the planets in our solar system act on us and our planet in the same way the moon does. This is confirmed by the ancient study of astrology. If you want to see “Gravity Visualized” watch this demonstration video.
Are events on Earth predictable?
From the research I did after watching the interview with Gregg, I have to unanimously agree that they are. I had just never thought about it until I encountered him. Humans are rather predictable creatures. Even things we once thought were unpredictable – like earthquakes and volcanoes are predictable now because scientists understand how they work. It’s all based on observational awareness. It’s the same way astrology was created thousands and thousands of years ago. Humans observed the stars in the sky, in the same way a sailor would depend on the stars to navigate the ocean, to help predict events. It’s the same way ancient civilizations would know when to plant, when to harvest and when a dry or rainy season would strike. It’s the same way we now understand El Nino and its little sister, La Nina. It’s all predictable.
What will 2017 bring? Who knows? All I can say is that the end of August, through the end of September, 2016, is an astrological “Big Bang“. And I know our world won’t be the same by the time the next New Year rolls around in 2017. In astrological terms, 2016 is the year of “transformation” – nothing can stay the same. It has to grow, or it dies. The Earth – and its inhabitants – have to complete a metamorphosis. It’s time. We simply cannot continue on the same path. All good things must come to an end – which is simply to say that a new beginning has arrived.
Is all of what’s going on in the world giving you a headache? Does your body ache? Don’t worry. Tomorrow will come whether you want it to or not. And if today wasn’t so good, tomorrow is a chance to make it better. There’s more to come!
