May be good news for some, and bad news for others – but there is no new normal to be attained – there never was. You can not go backwards moving forward. This may be a scary thought for those who have been waiting patiently for things to level off to some sort of normalcy. What’s coming can not be stopped, nor will it appear ‘normal’ in any way, shape, or form.
I noticed the term ‘new normal’ coming into its fullness around 2020/2021 during the great shake up when our lives were completely turned upside down. I heard the media telling us over and over again: “Wear your mask so we can get back to normal!!” “Get a shot so we can get back to normal!!” Many people complied so they could return to their lives – or so everyone thought. Doesn’t seem to be working out so well.
There is no new normal on the horizon.
Because the possibility never existed. Although we were led to believe otherwise. The main stream media devised a clever marketing campaign around the new normal. It was meant to put your mind at ease – phew, here I am at the NEW NORMAL, the government is taking care of things, I know what to expect and can now go back to my old life and relax.
Change is the only normal. Things are changing everyday on a massive scale. What happened not too long after 9/11? Did we move on with our lives, into the ‘new normal’? Is that what happened? It was also a huge setback for humanity in many ways, more than most of us realize. I remember thinking at the time: “Life as we know it will never be the same.” I felt depressed, angry and robbed as I felt my freedom slowly being sucked away.
So when they say ‘the new normal’ – do they mean: This is your life now, suck it up and get used to it!! I feel like we’ve reached the precipice of ‘new normal’ and what people will tolerate as a normal life.
As I and others experienced after 9/11, getting kicked out of our comfort zones can cause depression and anger, and in some cases rage. People don’t like it. What happened in 2020 was like being kicked in the face, then slapped a few times. “Leave me alone!! Don’t shake me awake!! I’ll do whatever I have to do – just let me get to my new normal life!!” I realize this sounds harsh, but it’s what I observed in people’s words and behaviors. Who can blame them – life was going along just fine before . . . or was it?
Some people are still locked up in their homes, while some can’t afford to feed their families, and others have lost their jobs – new normal? What used to be considered a ‘nice cozy life’ is getting harder and harder to obtain. Presently, the cost of living is causing major disruptions and rocked the boat of ‘cozy.’ The ‘old’ is being disassembled and can’t be put back together. There’s no place to hide. There’s no going back. This realization has had the unfortunate effect of increased suicides and addiction – for some, the only way out.
The OLD systems are based on a massive lie. That’s why they need to be disassembled. There is no other way around this.
If you’ve been questioning the narrative lately, then you know – once questioned, the genie can’t go back into the bottle. Your eyes are open and seeing. You are becoming aware and realize, the past, your old self, is gone, never to be seen again. This will certainly cause grief, then gradually move towards appreciation for your awareness.
Going against the narrative is hard work – easier to just comply and get back to the old life – of suffering and mediocrity – the new happy. But even that option is dissolving quickly. Waking up is never easy. It requires truth, feeling, self-enquiry, resolution, forgiveness . . . and loads more.
This is what life looks like now, on the verge of unprecedented change on a galactic scale. We are alive and witnessing a very rare event in the history of humanity. Hold on! It’s a very bumpy ride which may get worse before it gets better. There is no going back – and thank God for that!! What’s coming is . . . well, stick around!!
What you can do:
- Go inside yourself. Allow for feelings to surface and welcome all that come. Some will feel very uncomfortable, that’s ok. Do your best not to judge. Allow for passage through and maybe even shed some tears.
- Allow thoughts to come and go. Watch as they pass through. Use discernment – the majority of thoughts we have are not ours. I know this sounds crazy. Check it our for yourself. Some of them come from our shadow body – the part of us wanting to stay ‘safe’ and small. The part that wants you in your addictions – not feeling, not living. Do your best not to give in to the strong urgings of the mind.
- If something doesn’t feel right – don’t do it. You can’t afford to compromise your self any longer, the cost is too high.
- What humanity is experiencing is unprecedented. No one knows what’s around the corner. Living with uncertainty and no ‘normal’ bar will bring up loads of fear. Do your best to feel that fear and release it. Fear is not to be used to make life decisions. Decisions based on fear end up kicking you in the butt.
- Your body will be going through lots of changes. It’s ok. Listen to your body and research ways to help you with this.

Ending Negative Self-Talk
Negative beliefs and self-talk are very destructive to ourselves and others, mostly because we believe these negative things we tell ourselves are true. This is mainly because we identify with them and use “I am” in front of things like being a burden, weak, not worthy, a mistake . . . It’s not true. You’re…
