Living with Instability

Fasten your seat belts, friends. We’re in for a wild ride!

Does it seem like things are speeding up? Yes, in fact they are speeding up — quite literally.

As far as we know, the vibrational frequency of the Earth has always been 7.83 Hertz. This is the background radiation of the planet.

Over the past several decades, the planet’s vibrational frequency has been rising steadily, hovering between 15 and 25 Hertz, and reaching a peak reading of 36 Hertz on January 31, 2017. This is almost a five-fold increase!

Our bodies and nervous systems have evolved in conjunction with a planet vibrating at 7.83 Hertz. So what are the effects of a planet vibrating at higher frequencies?

Frequencies in the range of 12 to 38 Hertz are beta waves in the human brain. These are attentive brain waves associated with anxiety and stress, and may explain why we’re seeing more tension in the world these days.

Here’s the good news! As the planet’s frequency continues to increase, we will enter the realm of gamma brain waves, which is also an alert state, but is associated with super consciousness and awareness, as well as higher amounts of compassion and love.

It appears that what we’re experiencing now is a time of emotional intensity and transition, and once we get through it, we can collectively move from a state of surviving to a state of thriving. How amazing is that?

In the meantime, it behooves us to find ways to deal with the instability and stress.

What helps you to feel grounded, safe and secure during unstable times? I’d love to hear thoughts. Please share them with us in the comments section below.

May we all feel whole, happy, and strong.

With love and appreciation,

  1. I wish I could say that I get busy with a piece of artwork when I’m feeling unstable, but that’s not the case. I also wish I could say I turn inward and focus on my breath and gaze at my navel, but again, that doesn’t happen. What works best for me is just being honest about how I feel and sharing it with someone I trust. When I’m reminded that I’m not the only one going through stressful feelings, those feelings ease a bit. But sometimes I just need to ride it out and understand that this too shall pass.

    1. Hi Donna, I love your honesty! I would also like to be able to say that I handle things with grace, but that’s not always the case. Your suggestions really resonate with me. Thank you so much for sharing them.

  2. Creating helps me to feel that , even if it is spinning out of control we can keep being. In the Summer it our gardens that help, we are usually waiting and keep moving ahead, but as in life miracles show up every were, we just have to keep our eyes open. I know that God has a plan and I am part of it, this helps me stay grounded.

    1. Hi Kim, Thank you for your valuable insights. I agree that gardening is a way to stay grounded and centered. It helps me, too. And I like what you said about God having a plan — that there is a bigger picture that we can’t see.
