We all perceive that changes in our world are coming at us at breakneck speed and it seems to be accelerating. What does it mean, if anything? We all are aware of the 2012 hypothesis, Armagedon, New Age, etc. What is the truth? The most rational answer is no one really knows.
Given this, we are still facing real mega issues it seems such as global climate change, financial market meltdowns, real threats of pending large wars with North Korea, Iran, ME in general, Africa is ablaze and the Asian Continent from Pakistan to Sri Lanka to the Phillipines are in some sort of conflict. Cosmically, we have concerns being expressed about solar activity, Planet X, ET’s, passing through the galactic plane, etc. etc. etc.
So what should we do? How do we seemingly find a way to survive all of these sort of scenarios, when each in their own right seem to be overwhelming? Pay Attention, Become Aware! The bottom line is survival. Survival from a physical sense and well as survival from a psychological sense.
From the physical survival side of it, regardless of the impact, we need shelter, food, water, and protection from any adverse environmental conditions that could occur. So look to have, first and foremost, food in the form of dry goods for 1-3 months, a month supply of potable water, basic first aid supplies, basic protective and detection equipment for radiation, adverse weather such as extreme cold or heat, a supply of simple things like seeds to grow your own food if the period of impact extends beyond a 1-3 month period. A simple system to purify or boil water should also be available. A small portable generator and lots of batteries isn’t a bad idea either. These things do not have to be extremely expensive or consume half of your existing living space, but will assure you and your family can endure the initial impacts of any potential events. A good set of basic tools and some books on how to build shelters, create power from wind, and purify water should also be physically in your possession.
From a psychological point of view, there is the likelihood that mega events can overwhelm people. This is a well known phenomena seen repeatedly in large natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods. Again, these impacts can be mitigated by paying attention and being aware of what is going on at all times and being prepared. The term of “retribing” is most appropiate here. It simply means bringing families and extended groups together in a time of disaster. Mutual support, both physically and emotionally, can go a long way to mitigate these types of impacts. Have a plan that clearly identifies time and place to gather and talk about those plans with your families now, so everyone has pre-knowledge of where and when to act to any potential events.
All of these actions are simple, not over reactive, and based in common sense. At least sit down with those you love and care about and have a discussion of “what is our plan if….”. In the meantime, life goes on and will continue to go on. Just be prepared. It can create a huge level of comfort knowing “We have a plan” and everyone knows it.
