(in my opinion, once a person reaches a certain stage of Awakening, most all the daily multitude of attempts to keep that person in the matrix illusion fails . . but, there are other levels/layers of illusion waiting for that person, most obviously in the Alternative Media . . the trick is to not let them trap and keep you into any stage of Awakening, but to always keep aware and moving onward and upward, if possible, out of the mind & spirit trap)
I wish to address to you a certain brand of loneliness. It is perhaps
the most debilitating form of the condition. The state is sometimes
referred to as “isolation” or the sense of being disconnected, apart,
abandoned or simply “different” from everyone else you know.
situation is compounded when friends, coworkers and even family members
begin seeing you differently. They’re not so much intrigued by your
positive changes but rather disappointed by your shift in attitude and
may even be concerned for your mental stability.
These otherwise well-meaning souls are occasionally characterized as the “sleeping” and you may very well be part of the “awakening.”
The Awakening Mind
I say “awakening” because the experience appears to
be very dynamic and fluid by nature. I’m not sure I would recognize or
even fully appreciated an “awake” mind for they are far and few between
us. But for those who are experiencing various stages of awakening, you are as visible to me as I am to you.
Generally speaking, the awakening mind radiates at a much different and “higher” vibration
than most other people. Since this “vibration” wants to resonate
harmonically with similar or complimentary energies, it can (and often
does) resonate with like-minded people.
It can, however, just as
easily create discord with those who resonate at a much lower
vibration. Just imagine striking a non-complimentary note on separate
pianos, especially with one out of tune. That’s the discord I’m
referring to, except in this case, the resonance resides within the
psychic and spiritual realms.
speak in terms of “higher” and “lower” vibrations without truly
qualifying what is meant by that. First off, there is no state superior
to another. Like changing stations on a radio dial YOU choose the station you need (or want) to be on.
people are tuned to what I consider to be a limited awareness. This
does not make them any less sublime or capable as Humans. This is merely
the channel they are “tuned” to and as such they are acclimated with
This vibrational density is impressive in its own
right for it has the power to generate fantastic illusions so convincing
that even the conscious mind can fully buy into it. This ability to
manifest a false paradigm and to believe it to be true requires
But you, my dear reader, may have peeked behind the proverbial projector screen
and have seen an assembly of gears and levers and perhaps even a
portly, unassuming little man attending them with due diligence.
Stepping Out of the Matrix
awakening mind — now that’s a different story. The higher vibration of
this mind-body state allows a more commanding view. Like stepping up a
ladder, you can look down and see (though not really live) the dynamics
of the lower vibrations.
Each step up the ladder requires
tremendous courage, an open and curious mind and a high degree of
“functional” intelligence. Those steps command effort -much more effort
than what most are willing to exert.
Sleepers may go so far as
to observe or even stumble over this hypothetical “ladder” and still not
recognize what it is or how they may benefit from it.
the lower rungs of the ladder rarely look up. They choose to frequently
look “down” which may give them a false sense of superiority or dominion
over their world. They are especially prone to the hypnotic suggestion television creates and may even go so far as to “act out” various fictional characters or their favorite professional athlete.
lower state is easily entertained- and anything or anyone who
challenges their status quo will be dismissed as an outsider, a misfit
or a threat.
The Slide and Adrenalin
have alluded to a ladder- but now I would like for you to imagine a
slide. Going “up” the slide takes some effort. You must go up the steps,
higher and higher until you reach the top. One may then position
themselves in such a manner so to enjoy the ride downward.
downward “thrill” is brief but exhilarating. The slide provides a good
physical example of going from a higher state to a lower state and the
ensuing thrill from moving in this downward fashion.
There are also many examples of the slide analogy within the spiritual realm. Turn on any news station
and you will soon be bombarded with “energy dropping” stories that
create a sort of “rush” –a rush that, curiously enough, is habit
These news sources often report stories of tragedy and
high drama. So severe are these stories they actually can cause the body
to produce an adrenalin related “rush” or high.
Once again we find ourselves “sliding” down that imaginary slide and into a lower vibrational state. The “mainstream” news networks have created legions of adrenalin junkies. The “sleepers” are their primary target.
the course of their day, the sleepers gradually build their energy
level back up. But soon they find themselves back on that hypothetical
slide and are sent swooshing down once again into a lower energy state.
It’s a vicious, repeating cycle that keeps the sleepers fast asleep and
drunk happy on adrenalin.
Lonely at the Top
Many readers of Rattleberry Pie
have stayed on top of the ladder long enough to take in the view.
They’ve recognized that the view is more exhilarating than the fall.
saw many things up there- things that would be hard to describe to
those below. The awakening mind continues to build “steps” higher and
higher, and soon they are peeking above the clouds.
look down from this lofty position and see the tiny dot that was their
slide. They are amazed by how that relatively insignificant slide
inspired them to move higher. Sliding down from this cloud level height
is really no longer an option, at least not in the traditional sense.
is yet another dilemma of the awakening mind. Once you have experienced
the process of awakening there really is no going back.
(down) side is the higher you get, the more rarefied the air becomes.
Loneliness can settle in. The awakening mind is an exceptionally vibrant
mind that requires considerable stimulation and camaraderie. But it’s
lonely up there. Indeed.
The awakening experience
is truly a gift. It’s is not for the weak or the meek. It takes much
strength and courage to achieve these higher levels of enlightenment.
Those who are awakening come in all sizes and shapes – many are the
so-called Indigo’s, the Crystal’s, or essentially any Human that
realizes their personal power and potential and that there is much more
to this world than they’ve been told.
One may ponder if those in
the process of awakening have a moral obligation to try and wake the
sleepers. From my own observation and experience I would advise against
this. Simply let them sleep. The best way to reach them is over time.

But everyone agrees that it will be bad. For example, one financial expert at Boston University says that he believes the losses caused by the Swiss National Bank decision will be in the billions of dollars…
“The losses will be in the billions — they are still being tallied,” said Mark T. Williams, an executive-in-residence at Boston University specializing in risk management. “They will range from large banks, brokers, hedge funds, mutual funds to currency speculators. There will be ripple effects throughout the financial system.”And actually, if the total losses from this crisis are only limited to the “billions” I think that we will be extremely fortunate.
Citigroup, the world’s biggest currencies dealer, lost more than $150 million at its trading desks, a person with knowledge of the matter said last week. Deutsche Bank lost $150 million and Barclays less than $100 million, people familiar with the events said, after the Swiss National Bank scrapped a three-year-old policy of capping its currency against the euro and the franc soared as much as 41 percent that day versus the euro. Spokesmen for the three banks declined to comment.
As I mentioned above, a hedge fund that had 830 million dollars in assets at the end of December just completely imploded. Everest Capital’s Global Fund had heavily bet against the Swiss franc, and as a result it now has lost “virtually all its money”…
Marko Dimitrijevic, the hedge fund manager who survived at least five emerging market debt crises, is closing his largest hedge fund after losing virtually all its money this week when the Swiss National Bank unexpectedly let the franc trade freely against the euro, according to a person familiar with the firm.This is how fast things can move in the financial marketplace when things start getting crazy.
Everest Capital’s Global Fund had about $830 million in assets as of the end of December, according to a client report. The Miami-based firm, which specializes in emerging markets, still manages seven funds with about $2.2 billion in assets. The global fund, the firm’s oldest, was betting the Swiss franc would decline, said the person, who asked not to be named because the information is private.
It can seem like you are on top of the world one day, but just a short while later you can be filing for bankruptcy.
Consider what just happened to FXCM. It is one of the largest retail currency trading firms on the entire planet, and the decision by the Swiss National Bank instantly created a 200 million dollar hole in the company that desperately needed to be filled…
The magnitude of the crisis for U.S. currency traders became clear Friday when New York-based FXCM, a publicly traded U.S. currency broker, and the largest so far to announce it was in financial trouble after suffering a 90-percent drop in the firm’s stock price, reported the firm would need a $200-$300 million bailout to prevent capital requirements from being breached. Highly leveraged currency traders, including retail customers, were unable to come up with sufficient capital to cover the losses suffered in their currency trading accounts when the Swiss franc surged.Fortunately for FXCM, another company called Leucadia came riding to the rescue with a 300 million dollar loan.
Currency traders worldwide allowed to leverage their accounts 100:1, meaning the customer can bet $100 in the currency exchange markets for every $1.00 the customer has on deposit in its account, can result in huge gains from unexpected currency price fluctuations or massive and devastating losses, should the customer bet wrong.
But other currency trading firms were not so lucky.
For example, Alpari has already announced that it is going into insolvency…
Retail broker Alpari UK filed for insolvency on Friday.And Alpari is far from alone. Quite a few other smaller currency trading firms all over the world are in the exact same boat.
The move “caused by the SNB’s unexpected policy reversal of capping the Swiss franc against the euro has resulted in exceptional volatility and extreme lack of liquidity,” Alpari, the shirt sponsor of English Premier League soccer club West Ham, said in a statement.
“This has resulted in the majority of clients sustaining losses which exceeded their account equity. Where a client cannot cover this loss, it is passed on to us. This has forced Alpari (UK) Limited to confirm that it has entered into insolvency.”
Unfortunately, this could potentially just be the beginning of the currency chaos.
All eyes are on the European Central Bank right now. If a major round of quantitative easing is announced, that could unleash yet another wave of crippling losses for financial institutions. The following is from a recent CNBC article…
One of Europe’s most influential economists has warned that the quantitative easing measures seen being unveiled by the European Central Bank (ECB) this week could create deep market volatility, akin to what was seen after the Swiss National Bank abandoned its currency peg.As I have written about previously, we are moving into a time of greatly increased financial volatility. And when we start to see tremendous ups and downs in the financial world, that is a sign that a great crash is coming. We witnessed this prior to the financial crisis of 2008, and now we are watching it happen again.
“There was so much capital flight in anticipation of the QE to Switzerland, that the Swiss central bank was unable to stem the tide, and there will be more effects of that sort,” the President of Germany’s Ifo Institute for Economic Research, Hans-Werner Sinn, told CNBC on Monday.
And this is not just happening in the United States. Just check out what happened in China on Monday…
Chinese shares plunged about 8% Monday after the country’s securities regulator imposed margin trading curbs on several major brokerages, a sign that authorities are trying to rein in the market’s big gains. It was China’s largest drop in six years.Sadly, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is coming.
They just trust that Barack Obama, Congress and the “experts” at the Federal Reserve have it all figured out.
So when the next great financial crisis does arrive, most people are going to be absolutely blindsided by it, even though anyone that is willing to look at the facts honestly should be able to see it steamrolling directly toward us.
Over the past couple of years, we have been blessed to experience a period of relative stability.
But that period of relative stability is now ending.
I hope that you are getting ready for what comes next.
