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.

New Normal? Are we there yet?

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

    Loved this post Donna…. I listened and shared it with my hubby who was also nodding his head in agreement with your wisdom..
    We are creating our new world every day…. I know I for one do not want to get stuck in the ruts we have been presented with as ‘Normal’ for goodness knows how long..
    So your sentence here jumped right out and hit the mark 100 %

    “The OLD systems are based on a massive lie. That’s why they need to be disassembled. There is no other way around this.”

    So true, and for some it will be difficult, for many like the ruts they are sitting in… and do not embrace change…

    Your steps to what we can do… Again spot on…
    I have been finding myself withdrawing into my own inner world more and more as I have embraced my own creative side and just allowed myself the pleasure of BE-ing… In the moment, be it reading, crafting, or working alongside Mother Nature… I have felt my own inner expansion and peace evolving as I let go of the outer chaos..

    I feel if we all learnt more how to develop our inner peace, the sooner the world would reflect that peace back.. For are we not the mirrors from which the world reflects back at us our own inner conflicts..

    Also agree about our bodies going through changes… and embracing them… I now listen to what my body tells me… Be it what to eat, or when to rest.. I am following the flow…

    Loved the flow of your post Donna… Much love your way.. Sue ❤ 🙏✨

      Hi Sue! Thank you, and I have been graced with a nod of approval from hubby! Wow!! Yes, I too am so sick of their version of ‘normal’ – any more of it and I might hurl! lol Some people won’t make it through the change from lies to truth. Some of it may even be hard for me to wrap my head around the lengths they have gone to in order to capture humanity. It’s getting harder for me to go outdoors too, staying more inside, more at peace like you say. It feels like self-preservation measures are needed. The less I hear of ‘out there’ the better! You are right on about following the flow for your body – I too am noticing about my digestion – some days ok, some days can’t eat much, and some days really tired, some ok. So yes, lots going on. Embracing change!! At least we are aware and have some knowledge of what’s going on, but on some days even this is tough.

      Take good care!! Hugs and a thank you to hubby! Much love, Donna

        Exactly Donna , some days I too don’t eat much …, other days I’m snacking between meals lol 😂

        I’m finding myself sleeping more in the daytime. I now don’t fight it. If I’m Tired I go lay down on the bed for an hour and drift off to sleep.
        Dreamtime is busy, so just going with it.
        Pulling in protection etc and BEing. Knowing ALL IS WELL.

        Knowing what we know is tough, but I also know deep within despite all the outward appearances other things both on a cosmic level and practically here on earth , are shifting energies for humanities betterment in the future.

        Whether we see that happen or not at least we know we made contributions via our own vibrations.

        We will keep on keeping on 🙏💖
        Much love. x

          Yes, Sue agreed – going with the changes we are experiencing within our bodies is the only way through this. I can’t fight it anymore, nor do I want to, so surrendering has been my friend. The waiting is tough on the mind sometimes, but again -surrender, and like you said – we are helping to make a better future, and all is well! I can understand your ‘nap’ time being very important, and lately more frequent, as you are a Dreamwalker! Lots will be getting accomplished in your dreams! Much love! Donna

      Hi Julia! Yes, we’re in for a wild ride! Buckle up! We’re in the great unknown, and in God’s timing. It’s almost like going 200mph with a blacked-out windshield! Frightening and exciting all at the same time. Doing whatever I can to hang in there. Thank you for your comment and for stopping by! Much appreciated!!
