As we have been preparing to cope with the predicted earth changes - how is everyone adjusting so far?

We are hearing of the snow storms in the northern hemisphere and floods and mudslides etc  Are your plans and preparations helping your situation or have they been constantly modified and made flexible.

It would be good to hear stories of your situation as it might help others cope and adapt better.

I have moved to a different region, and am finding my way. Not everything has gone according to plan, some things were taken. Sometimes it is like two steps forward and one step back. I think it will all work out. I am making new friends and have found a few who value preparedness and are a little like minded. We are not working together as a group but at least talk. I have been looking into my options which are limited as I have very little money. But I am finding that by helping others, I can probably find where I need to be. I will add that I rented an old farm house which, as it turned out, was full of mold and we became very sick. This makes me think about all that damp weather to be expected after the shift, and mold will certainly be something to think about. We moved out of that place and we have been recovering. I used lots of herbs and miso soup to get better. It is important to have a plan for healing. And avoid mold.

I spend a couple of hours each morning researching the ning, and the zetatalk website, as well as the various disaster websites that haven't yet been shut down or altered by the government. I watch the growing changes and try to memorize as much as I can of the zetatalk and related web pages, as I feel like things I print out might not make it through the shift. I feel (and have always felt) like I am in a safe place here in Northern California, and have accessed the google sea level rise tool, too make sure we are above water in the aftertime. My mom is a hippy, and moved us up here when I was a little girl, saying it was the safest place to be, but now with all the changes and the pending pole shift, it is difficult to get her to believe that her location will be flooded, and that she needs to move. I live about 40 miles from her, and am safe here, but she is right next to the river, which has already flooded once in the past 100 years. I tell her that she needs to go, and she looks at me like I am crazy, but I know in my heart that when the New Madrid shifts, she will listen.

I am not sure how I happened upon the zetatalk website, all I know is that it came to me when I was ready to learn. I feel like I am in a bit of a unique situation, as I life in a "hippy" community that has been well enlightened over the past 40 yrs. and in my soul, I believe that others are preparing here, just like I am, which will help all of us in the long run. We are already well versed on growing our own food, and communal living, as well as reaching out to the greater community as a whole. I read both of Nancy's books, and have been filled with much hope and joy, feeling like we're gonna be ok through this. Personally, I live on the top of a hill, at least 300 feet above the town itself, which is already 20 miles inland and 2000 ft in elevation. I have 2000 gallons of water storage, and am looking to increase that. I have spoken with some of my neighbors, and we are all ready to move about on water if need be. I have extremely vivid dreams, in which my family and I are safe and able to feed ourselves post-shift, with a little changes in how we get around. I have dreamed of landslides, and bridges failing, and have already made plans to compensate. I have wood heat, and a very well built home, which, should it survive the shift, will be more than what we need. I am preparing my friends for these changes by posting earth changes and relevant links on Facebook, which I have found to be an ok medium for getting info out there to the general public. In closing, let me just say that I am full of hope and am feeling ok about the things I have been doing to help others survive, and hope that other people that have taken on these things, feel as much hope as I do. We will be ok, we just need to get ready!!

For far too many, coping will mean "deliberately blinding themselves to the truth."  So we should not be surprised when people claim we are crazy even when the evidence cannot rationally be denied. The Zetas put it all together for us in 2008:

Those who claim that the crop shortages, combined with weather irregularities, combined with the rise in earthquake and volcanic activites are normal because any part of this has occurred in the past are deliberately blinding themselves to the truth. We warned that this would happen as the times got tense. Increasingly, those who must cling to denial will do so, with more and more shrill demands that all is normal. We have cited cases to be expected where people will go to their normal jobs even after the rotation of the Earth has stopped and the northern hemisphere has experienced 3 days of darkness. Denial knows no limits, as when someone who needs this crutch finds this does not suffice, then insanity results. We have stated that 43% of survivors will be insane to some degree, and this will include a number who were not in denial but who found the stress too great.

The reason for all this denial and insanity is that the coming cataclysms are so horrific, and affect so much of a person's life. Particularly those who live in cities and have no experience with or access to rural living where they might feed themselves will be unwilling to accept reality. Those who rely on social services or care from family members, who are emotionally dependent and cannot take responsibility for themselves - these people view the devastation in communication and government operations as a type of abandonment. When the thought of a catastrophe as great as we have described is contemplated, these individuals boggle, and thus conclude the catastrophe is not possible and will argue that endlessly. This type of denial will only increase as the pole shift approaches.  http://www.zetatalk.com/index/zeta461.htm

I am lucky in that we started a farm before I learned of ZT. I say we, but DH came along kicking and groaning almost the whole time, he was a city kid and I was country.  I've been spinning wool into yarn and making cloth and knitting and crocheting for years. I have my sheep and goats and chickens and a huge garden and started learning to seed save a few years ago. I've made many batches of soap, make several kinds of cheese, learned how to store food, learned to brain tan hides, learned to build, searched out ways to make shelters without the use of nails or screws, how to use & make herbal remedys, how to forage, first aid & emergency medicine, how to find water, how to distill water, how to douse, found a shortwave radio and books on how to use it, how to fish, smoke meat and so much more.

I've been following ZT since the GLP days before the Ning, and everything has unfolded in due time as they predicted. I am not sure we will be ready or even make it thru the PS,  but since I live in a hilly area there are plenty of places to lay low when the hour of the shift occurs and the winds howl. I've finally convinced my DH that this is happening and we are continuing to learn more about how to do for ourselves. Our plan is to buy some containers, place in a hill side and cover with dirt then fill them with supplies and tools. then when the time comes fell some trees in the gully behind the house, cover them with tarps and dirt and take as many animals as we can and secur them under the logs, then secur ourselves.

Our family isn't on board yet but we still hope the children will come around in time and have included plans for many people to join us, hoping the in-laws will come too. We even got an Alaskan sawmill in case there are any trees worth saving and turning into usable lumber...we are learning about wood gas now.

I am thankful that running the farm keeps me very busy so I don't have too much time to dwell on what might be and can instead concentrate on the tasks at hand. We have reached out to extended family and neighbors and think we just might be in a good area for community to come together and help each other, so maybe moving isn't necessary – though if we had the money we would move to a safer location; but it doesn't seem to be possible right now as we are living like everyone else is from paycheck to paycheck. We make do, search for tools at garage sales, and learn everything we can about how to survive well.

I used to dream of running a fiber arts school, in my mind I still see a large building with lots of tools to help make things out of fiber and wool, with fields of sheep and goats, huge gardens of food and flowers and herbs, a wood shop and a huge barn with lots of hay put up for winter, a cheese cave and root cellars, and lots of people coming and going- perhaps it will be a reality after the shift and I can help teach everyone how to do these things and keep the knowledge alive.

And then perhaps I won't make it - I keep remembering something someone said once about surviving - the holocaust saw many survivors, but who would want to live with those psychological scars & memories? To merely survive isn't always a good thing - as ZT points out many will be insane as they won't be able to adjust to the changes. I'm not sure I want to just merely survive, and I don't want to survive alone, I would rather take my chances with my family than move out into nowhere and have no one. I'm a social creature and need community.

How am I doing? As several have mentioned - some days are better than others. Some days I think why bother with all this as it won't survive anyway, I should just get a back pack and a sturdy pair of boots, a hatchet and knife with some flint and some fish hooks and hope for the best but expect the worst.

Then I have days like today - I'm OK today and tomorrow will take care of itself. Through all of this I am amazed at the awesome power of nature, whether it's a baby goat being born or a rip in the earth 5 miles long - this is an amazing time to be alive!

Great post Vicky, It's inspiring to know that you have done what you needed to and learnt so very much on the way.  There is hope for the rest of us that are not quite there yet.  Some times the hard part is keeping up the sense of urgency and motivation .  You provided some motivation, thanks again.

Your right it is an amazing time to be alive.

Just follow your nose,  spend 15 mins a day researching one thing, you'll quickly find you have a lot more knowledge and feel more confident. Don't be afraid of trying things out...making soap isn't as hard as it seems, if you can make a cake you can do soap! Read, read, read! Knowledge is power in that it gives you confidence to move forward. I learned everything from the internet, I watch a lot of how to videos on youtube, search Google books for old texts on things of interest, haunt used book stores and online versions of the same. Just do it!

Good luck to us all!

Yes, thanks for your message of hope and preparedness, Vicky! We all need to be reminded that survival isn't a given, but we need to plan for the best possible outcome. I find that the people I've told thus far, mostly my loved ones, first inquire as to how I must be so depressed. No! I tell them, I plan on surviving and helping my friends and family. I'm expecting to live (although of course I have contemplated, cried and prayed at the thought of the horrific losses I may endure if my husband and/or 2 yr old daughter were to die), but in order to be positive, I am planning on our survival tools, knowledge, and what I still need to do to prepare. As many have stated, I live two lives, one day to day life as we know it where I earn my income and another where I am researching, watching, learning, planning and preparing for life post PS. Is it fortunate that we have a double hemisphere brain for this life in duality? I don't know, but I am certainly glad that I "stumbled" upon GLP (and I think perhaps even the IRC chat logs seem a bit familiar) but I wasn't "ready" until May of 2010 to really KNOW ZT. I am glad to find such wonderful people who are as "crazy" as I am. I hope that someday we may all meet in a better time and place!

Hi Roger,-

yes, you should plan on going north, as Borås will survive the 7 of 10 but not the PS, as it´s only at about 180 feet. Best regards !

Roger Sahlin said:

I sit hours each day searching the internet, learning about aquaponics system, herbs and plants to eat, electricity, wind turbines, how to create  different tools from nothing, cob house skills...

But now I´m wondering about STO and STS orientation, what am I, who am I? Am I  a decided STO?  Become an octopi or a hybrid on earth, this seems more important to me than to survive the poleshift. I am decided to survive of course and I know that whithout the information Nancy and Zetas given us, few will survive where I live. Water and  vulcanoes is not an issue here but without our supermarkets many will surely die. 

Still, I want to sell our house  and get a piece of land on the country side. Our part of Sweden will become an island so maybe we have to go north to widen our possibilities?

Hi Malou,

so far my wife refuse to move as she doesn´t feel the danger...  However Borås i 140 m over sea level but I live to the east and the range is 220-340 m over sea level.

Hi Douglas, Tarps! Heavy duty plastic tarps will make a good, water tight shelter in a pinch. They're inexpensive and if you have a few on hand, you will be set. ( . . . and yes, stay away from the Wal-mart cheapies. You will regret it.)

Douglas Loven said:

well I haev started buying things here and there that do not need batteries or non-renewable fuels..like a ligher. I got a crank flash light and a maginessiam fire maker. Just to name a few things. As for shelter...after thing have calmed down...i think a cheat-0 tent from wal-mart is unwise as it will tear and dry rot in a short time. So i am looking into other options in that regaurd.....any ideas?

Hi Joy, et.al., To me, any solid plans will most likely result in disappointment as we have only basic information. Where to go is a good plan, but how to get there should be flexible. I believe manual and mental skill building is more important because it will allow people to adjust to unknowns. Should you have a tent, yes but it might get stolen. If you know how to build a shelter, it can not be stolen. Tom Brown has a good book series, but ya gotta try em out; work out the kinks.

To me, there are too many variables, including the actions of other people. This is more about flexibility and a lack of fear.  Fear will be, as it is today, the greatest threat to survival.
