We’ve recently had a rash of electronic mishaps; computer, land line phones, internet connectivity, etc. going wonky.
I love reading my astrological forecasts, but just about anything else regarding astrology loses me, except Mercury going retrograde.
When Mercury goes retrograde I personally pay attention. I don’t get all weirded out about it, but have developed a healthy respect for the slowing down time and work to have patience during these periods.
When Mercury goes retrograde, it affects communications (phones, contracts, misunderstandings, misspellings, can’t “find” the right word, appointments, etc.); electronics (phones, computers, any kind of power/cable lines, printers, vehicles with computers chips, etc.); destination or contractual delays occur or mishaps with vehicles, flights, appointments, scheduling, etc.; and patience. Getting annoyed during this time is as effective as banging ones head against a brick wall to get rid of a headache – not going to work.
However, since the next Mercury Retrograde date is not until June 26, 2013, I know that this does not explain the electronics going wonky.
When we are stressed we can kind of zap our electric/electronic stuff, causing them to go on the fritz.
(The following is taken from “Undefined Reality” )
A Created Reality
“I don’t understand! Why is this happening again? And it’s always at the worst possible time!” I whined to the car repairman.
The grandfatherly mechanic wiped his hands on a rag while he explained, “It’s the computer, ma’am. It’s gone out again. I can’t tell you why, but we will get right on it and get you on the road again.”
I was fuming, but not about the mechanic. It wasn’t his fault he knew me so well. It was the car! A brand new car, with computer in it, and it seemed to break down at the most inopportune times! I bought the new car so I would have a reliable vehicle.
Later that evening, I was telling my husband how upset I was about the car acting up. I had had enough of its freaking-out. He had one of those frustrating-to-me smirks on his face as he asked, “What was it this time? The blinkers going on and off by themselves?”
“No”, I said, “It was the headlights and dash lights; on and off, on and off. I swear, whenever I get angry or stressed, the car seems to become possessed!”
His smirk became a grin. “So, quit getting so worked up and your car will behave.”
His last statement threw me back into my past…
I was a teen – I sat on my bed with my brand new wind-up watch. I had wanted this so much – and two days after getting it, it wouldn’t work. My watches always stopped, then my mother fussed that I had over-wound them, which I knew I hadn’t.
As a young adult – Seated at my computer, close to tears. My insides felt knotted up. I sat, helpless, as I watched my computer system go haywire. As if I didn’t have enough going on – having just left my alcoholic first husband and trying to raise a young child on my own… now my computer was useless, which put me behind on my work schedule.
From there, my thoughts jumped around …
Toasters quit working one day, fine the next; TV’s out for no apparent reason; stereos and home computers going haywire one day, and fine the next.
And the memory of telling my holistic doctor I couldn’t wear wind up watches. I can’t remember how we arrived at that particular topic, but I remember his explanation.
He explained everyone – human, animal and plant – generates an electro- magnetic field. Some are subtle enough that it doesn’t interfere with their surroundings.
Then, he continued, there are people like me whose fields are strong. Strong enough to interfere with the crystals and gems inside wind-up watches, which usually stops them permanently. In fact, some people with strong fields, when experiencing strong emotions like anger, stress, etc., can really whack out electrical devices.
He offered some suggestions on how not to radiate so much, and then recommended that I try the new LCD watches that had recently come out.
No wonder my husband was so amused. I had been causing the problems with my own car!
I still can’t wear wind-up watches for very long – but I never had another computer-related problem with my car!
But, we’ve not been stressed.
Last week I wrote that energy shifts means changes (see Changes 101) – well, guess what? Since everything is energy, that means our “stuff” needs to adapt as well.
If you change vibration/frequency, you may no longer be in sync with your electronic surroundings; the electronic surroundings may need to adjust as well, and may go a little wonky until it adapts. (I have never seen soft items “adjusting”, just electronics/electrical items).
If the energy can no longer adapt, it needs to be removed from the reality. Our land line phones weren’t able to adapt anymore and crashed. Even for those who can sustain electronics, some just can’t rise anymore and will cease to operate.
The printer and computer here made it through this most recent shift after a brief wonky stint; computer chip in the cell phones and vehicles came through without a hitch.
This is another reason why I suggest shielding not only self, but one’s home (and vehicles) as well; since everything is energy, everything can benefit from a good energy cleansing and shielding.
We have a tendency to be patient with others when they go through an awkward period or are a little off; please have patience with yourself and your environment/reality during energy shifts…that can make the adjustment period go a bit smoother.

We are an adaptive species (I am not talking about consuming GMO’s, radiation contaminated foods, and the assorted unhealthy creations) – so, let’s talk Changes 101.
We have, once again, entered another energy shift (which has me a bit hyper today) and we all know this means changes for each of us physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Some people are now experiencing their body rejecting refined sugars. There is also an increase in human bodies beginning to reject: meats (treated humanly animals and/or organic don’t seem to be rejected as much); seafood and processed foods with unpronounceable chemicals.
Some are experiencing nagging cravings, but are not sure what it is they are craving. Might I suggest starting with a fresh salad and see what your body does? Or perhaps some fresh steamed green beans or steamed collard greens…
Some are developing sensitivities to perfumes, colognes, body lotions, soaps, hair products, air fresheners, chemicals used outdoors, etc. The smells and/or chemicals are too strong and, for skin products especially, may create skin reactions.
Again, some are becoming more sensitive, or prickly, when interacting with negative, or perhaps self-depreciating people, preferring to not be around them.
Also trust is still an issue. Some are realizing they are having trouble trusting others when their words, energy and actions aren’t expressing the same thing – which is a form of deceit.
I am also seeing, and sensing, an increase in attempts to create fear in the human race – especially in the United States; they are amping up their efforts.
Fear is an ancient tried and true way of controlling the masses. By creating confusion and fear in humans, they are less likely to see that they are being directed or herded; however, as we all know, the “old ways” are phasing out.
Once the people step back and away from the fear – releasing the fear-based control and manipulation – they begin to crave what is right, and that involves a peaceful, centered and balanced approach to living.
In the United States, we are teetering on losing the right of “due process of law” (see the US Constitution; Bill of Rights); we have seen some instances where –without “due process of law” – the enforcers became judge, jury and executioners.
Please learn your Constitutional Rights!
People have begun to really see; question and listen to self when something is not right.
And many are now standing up to be heard when they see a terrible injustice or imbalance.
This is part of accepting responsibility for your reality.
Spirit Moves Us
The more we listen to our higher selves / inner voice* the more our spirit moves us towards the fifth dimension.
As we move closer and closer to the fifth dimension, we are driven to remove more and more of the heavier and more dense energies in our lives; physically, emotionally and spiritually.
If you look back through this article, you will notice that there are no delineations as far as which topic was emotional, physical or spiritual. This is because each topic involves all three; we are not just physical beings…we are also emotional and spiritual – we are all-in-one.
*(Baring any mental health issues)
For the past two weeks I have received phone calls, emails and texts about experiences amping up with ghost sightings as well as seeing “uckies” (demons, man-made golems – aka shadow beings), attachments and other-world beings.
On the surface it may appear that the activity has severely increased, like the “other beings” are interacting with humans more.
Well, Yes and No
Yes it appears to have increased; No, it really hasn’t.
What I mean is this:
We (humans) have raised our energy frequency (through soul growth experiences, meditation, conscious awareness, conscious creation, accepting responsibility for all aspects of self, etc.).
Since we have raised our frequency, we are more able to: access; have more conscious interaction with; be more aware of other dimensions and/or frequencies.
It is not that ghosts, etc. have become more numerous; rather, it is the humans have become more sensitive and many are now becoming consciously aware of that which has been around for perhaps eons. This means more people are having more conscious interaction with the “paranormal”.
We have become more able to see, sense, hear, know, etc. other-beings and/or other dimensions. Whereas in the far past, it took a seer, magician, wizard, medicine person, prophet, etc. to see, hear, know, etc.
Then as time progressed, more people could see, hear, know, etc.
Those sensitives, gurus, seers, etc. were placed throughout history to aid and guide humans as well as to show us what was possible for humans to do.
Today, so many people are engaging in it – first person. In other words, more humans are aware, which means more sightings and experiences are being reported.
Now, having said that, there has been an increase of conscious human contact with “ascended” beings – those who had previously worked their way through 3rd, 4th, 5th and some higher, dimensions.
This does not make those higher dimensional beings omnipotent or infallible! It just makes them more experienced.
But overall you really need to trust you and your own inner guidance.
Some people have moved into fear with this expanded conscious awareness.
I know it can be scary when you step out of your known “comfort zone” – but I honestly think that your higher self felt it was time and/or you were spiritually ready for this next step.
Most of you won’t take crap from another human (with a body) when it comes to you or your: spouse, significant other, child, pet, etc. Good for you!
So don’t take crap from a human – or any other being – who just happens to be without a body.
This is where you may have new boundaries to set. Just because they are not 100% solid doesn’t mean you are at their mercy. Don’t take crap from them or fear them.
Fear drains you – your life force – and guess where it goes?
It feeds those bullies – human or other being – with or without bodies – who are trying to create fear in you; this means more food for them.
But What If I Don’t Want It?
Please talk to, and trust, your higher self, your team (aka – guides, angels, etc.) and your Source (G-d, G-ddess, etc.). Talk to them (like you would a best friend) and explain your fears – ask they work with you to help you through this.
Please remember that there are also other humans who can help you as well.
Don’t Get Taken – But Please Compensate
If you seek out another to help you, ask others about them (if you don’t know them yourself) before you engage them.
It should not cost you an exuberant fee to have someone aid you! I do believe in compensating someone for their time, energy and expertise (just like you get compensated at work for yours) but it should be realistic. Also, you can send donations to those who help you and don’t charge you.
For three nights I tossed and turned. Noises, noises, noises.
I was really annoyed – all day long I kept hearing planes flying overhead.
I had trouble getting to sleep – so many loud noises. I run a fan at night for white noise, but the planes drowned that out.
I was awakened later by a loud bang. I dozed off. I woke up to the sound of a plane. What the heck?
I finally got 2 hours of sleep in the late morning.
When I headed for the kitchen, I realized I was hearing blasted planes again! I grabbed my sunglasses and headed outside – I wanted to know who was flying so low and repetitively. It took me a bit – I searched the clear skies for the plane that I could still hear.
I wasn’t flying low – it wasn’t even near the house.
My husband called from work, so I asked him if he heard planes lastnight. Clearly annoyed, he answered, “Yes, they kept waking me up.”
This went of for a few nights; neither of us could find any mention in local news sources or through networking of anyone else having these problems.
As we become more sensitive due to our energies vibrating faster and higher, our senses can be temporarily overloaded – and we can experience weird energy.
Sight, sound, taste, hearing, smell…all, some or one can become heightened when we experience a growth spurt.
Noises and smells had been bugging me for a few days now.
In the past, I recommended patience and visualizing creating a “volume knob”; picture yourself turning the noise (smell, or any other of the senses) knob down to reduce the effect – knowing you can turn it up again if you need or want.
After you realize what’s may be going on, it may take a day or two to get the knob working to your satisfaction….in other words, it may take some practice to get it to a comfortable level.
We are still working on clearing up our pasts, healing our bodies and minds (linked to clearing up our pasts) and lightening the load; accepting responsibility (we are getting a bit better on this one!); and learning to create.
During all of this, Mother Earth is calling us to get back to nature – which is not always easy since we like our comfortable and easy-to-access synthetic and processed created world around us.
Mother Earth is rising in energy as well and working on moving into the fifth dimension.
Between Mother Earth working on balancing and raising herself, and us working on balancing and raising our energy, its no wonder we sometimes feel off or get glitchy.
Electronics & Other 3rd Dimensional Stuff
When we get glitchy, we tend to be out of sync with electronics or even maybe our day-to-day routine goes wonky; all third dimensional stuff.
I know this is frustrating, but try to find your peace within, take a couple of deep cleansing breaths and maybe work on something else for a bit.
Yesterday I walked into our walk-in closet, stomped my foot one time and let loose with a primal release of lower energies (I am not sure how else to describe it – it was not a yell; more like a very verbal lion’s breath release, deep and low).
This broke loose some stuck energy (not energy stuck in the closet, but in me) and helped release it which helped me to rebalance and ground.
Once stuck energy is cleared, I had no other issues for the rest of the day.
It becomes more important, on a personal level, to learn how to adapt and move through the energy growth spurts and energy changes.
Don’t be afraid to experiment safely (do no harm to self or others) to see what you need to do to adapt.
I have recently being doing some research and discovered that I do know a lot and there is a lot I don’t know.
The history of the United States – and the world – is not what we were taught for the last forty to fifty years. It was, however, the accepted edited history at the time. It’s a shame that the altered “truths” are shoved down our children’s and grandchildren’s throats…but perhaps that particular complaint of mine should be left for another time and article.
Forty to fifty years ago, we had a more limited view of our (individual) world; what we knew, right or wrong, was passed on to us through our family, our school, and limited information from newspapers and news on the radio or television.
There was a better connection to Earth; but individually, we were (as a majority) a bit uninformed on what really was happening in the rest of the world.
And then we expanded, through technological advancements, until we one day had the internet – then the whole world opened up to us.
We got to see videos, pictures, articles, etc. from – and about – nearly everywhere on our planet and beyond.
And we began exploring more of our spiritual nature – expanding our awareness and perceptions.
Then many began losing touch with their physical existence.
Our foods are coming from…well, many don’t know beyond the grocery store.
How many of you know what any of the following are and where they are found? (This is just a minute list – chemicals abound in our food, water and skin care products):
1. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
2. Sodium Nitrates and Sodium Nitrites
3. Polyethylene glycol (PEG)
I challenge each one of you to research and get to know exactly what they are and what they do; then go to your pantries, closets, drawers, cabinets and read your labels.
Did you know that you skin is your largest organ, and that what you put on your skin enters your bloodstream?
My doctor once told me that if I couldn’t pronounce an ingredient, or didn’t know what it was, then I shouldn’t be using, wearing or eating it.
We have expanded outward – and have learned a lot!
But, we seem to have forgotten our physical selves. Oh, we are exercising, and trying to watch our caloric intake, but we have basically and blindly allowed ourselves to eat whatever is on the grocery shelves or restaurants. If it is on the grocery shelf, or in the restaurant, it’s safe, right? Otherwise it couldn’t be there, right?
The processed stuff is there because it was cheap and easy to make (toxins included) and we keep buying it.
We have learned a lot! And, we’ve a lot to learn.
Our progression involves Body, Mind and Spirit – not just one of them, all of them.
As we work to take responsibility for our spiritual growth and our mental capacities, we must not forget to take responsibility for our physical bodies.
Before you use the insecticide, GMO/GE products/seeds, weed killers, etc., please read and research the ingredients (outside the company’s product page); you will be breathing, eating and drinking those same chemicals a bit down the road.
Read labels, inform yourself and help protect you and your children’s bodies.
Don’t believe that just because it is on a store shelf, in a restaurant, or your doctor’s office, that is it okay for you.
In this day and age of information, take control of what you will and will not allow for your healthier Body, Mind and Spirit.
