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.
Pretty terribly. I'm 19, just finished a year at college. Living on the east coast. Lots of family upheaval in the last few months. I'm contemplating dropping out of school and leaving the area for someplace west. It's a very difficult call though. Despite my melancholy, I care greatly for many friends and family members. It would be difficult to leave them. I haven't talked to any of them about the 'shift; don't want to be seen as a loon, which would soil my credibility. I'm waiting for the right time to act, and I'm also contemplating just what action should be taken. It doesn't help that everything is becoming so fragmented, that people a re drifting apart. I have this one friend who'll be going to school in Florida come the fall-- the last place I want her to be during all this drama. I'm quite distressed.
With so much going on, I'm tending to, lately, just close my eyes and give up, not care anymore! Never mind me, I just have been feeling a bit too tired of about everything, lately, but still feel the flame of faith burning deep there. Tomorrow will be another day. A new begining. To all those who are preparing, do it, doesn't hurt.
Reading everyone's replies has made me realise I have it a lot easier in some respects than others.
I don't need to try to convince anyone anymore. My family is helping me prepare. We are buying land. My parents and I will be incurring loans to prepare. Even though my brother and sister aren't actively helping, they will also follow suit. No one calls me crazy. They have their doubts but are still doing it.
And now I realise how hard this is to obtain for many people and I feel terrible. As this is the case, I will tell you how I convinced my family, and maybe this will benefit you in convincing your loved ones.
I'm in 3rd year university in Australia, studying two courses and 20 years old. I've been looking into ET/UFO's for last two/three years and convinced my family to action some time this year on PX. I had been researching that for the last year, yet somehow only stumbled here recently.
How I did it?
I told my family I had something important to tell them. I waited a week or so then:
1. I prepared a fact sheet of 10+ pages of purely evidence pointing towards existence of PX. I then sat my mum and dad down and explained this all to them. I then explained what would happen in a pole shift (basically)
2. I did not mention ETS (I advise you don't because it can be very hard to cope) or Zeta Talk.
3. I explained to them the evidence and how it logically pointed towards the existence of PX. I explained actions being taken around the world etc. Then I said we should prepare for this.
4. I said considering the evidence I believe there to be a 70% chance of this happening, at least. Considering this I said we should take action. The action I suggested was buying land and supplies. This would cost around 70 thousand dollars I explained.
I said I was fully prepared to get a loan to pay this (I've saved 6k so far with my job enough to get a loan).
The line I used to convince them was
"Considering all this evidence, there's a lot of it, and a lot more I haven't seen all we need to do is get a small loan, which I will pay the repayments, to buy some land and prepare. If it doesn't happen then that's fine, I'll pay of the loan and we have a quiet country resort encase something else happens in this world. But... If it does happen, then we will be prepared. It wont put us out of a job or in harms way to prepare, and considering the evidence we'd be stupid not to".
I said something along these lines. I realise this will be very different for you but I suggest if you are convincing others:
1. focus on evidence
2. avoid subject of ETS (this is too jarring to a normal person especially after telling them about a pole shift haha)
3. Try to make it seem like preparing is really easy to do and doesn't take much effort, and that if nothing happens so what! We have a place stocked out with supplies.
4. You can sell the property if nothing happens.
this may differ for you but It helped me convince my family. I no longer have problems convincing them, and we are actively looking for properties now.
good luck, Chris
Thank you Joy for starting this discussion. I think that this is something that we all truely need. The times ahead of us are something that will be very difficult for each one of us to face individually. And yet at the same time we are all facing them together and we also need each others help to get through. From time to time each of us need the reassurance that we are not alone.
I am a new member. I started following the Zeta Talk website in November 2010 and yesterday I signed up for this Ning. I am torn as to what to do. I am American and my wife is Philipino. In the Philippines it is desirable to have a member of the family working abroad for economic reasons. After we were married I returned to the US to continue my employment and my wife stayed in the Philippines with the children. I have had access to the resources of this website but my wife does not have Internet access in her home. As it is, it is hard enough to maintain our marriage with a conversation over the telephone once or twice a week let alone have meaningful conversations about Earth Changes and the coming Pole Shift. For now my wife thinks it is best for me to work in the US and I feel that she does not understand why I am worried. I spend a lot of sleepless nights thinking about what is the best thing for me to do for my family.
I think that it is a good idea to maintain this discussion in one form or another as long as we can. To be able to read about another person's experiences, of what they are doing and how they are making their preparations for the future, and how their lives are being affected personally, makes these events more real to us in our own lives and is a very great source of encouragement by which we can strengthen ourselves and our loved ones.
Thanks again Joy and to Everyone!! God Bless.
