According to Gregg Braden, [best-selling author bridging science and spirituality,] people around the world are sensing that we have entered a time that is unlike any other time in history. More often than not, people say that they feel like something has begun and has yet to complete, or they are waiting for the other shoe to drop. It will be bigger than 9/11 and the war in Iraq.
People sense a low level tension indicating that something big is about to happen, and although we may not realize it consciously, we are in some way preparing for whatever that is.
We are living in a time of great change. We are seeing measurable parameters that are changing and appear to be converging. For example, the magnetic fields of the earth are in rapid decline right now.
