The Universe Is Shifting And It's Much Bigger Than A Shimmy Shake

Back in 2010, midsummer, I lived out of state. On this one particular day, I was sitting on the antique cement bench located in the middle of my vegetable garden. The soil, where I lived, had produced one of the most abundant gardens I've ever grown. The house I lived in was paid for. No mortgage. It was filled with furniture and decor from an upscale department store. I was in my mid-30's. I had reached my goals. Crossed off the items on my bucket list. However, there I was, sitting in the middle of my garden, eating sun-warmed grape tomatoes. Completely. Miserable.

A few months later, in October, I visited my family in N.H. for the first time in 7 years. I stayed for a week. Lots happened. Good stuff. Long story short, I didn't return to my out-of-state home as the same woman who left.

In the months to follow, weird stuff started happening. Out of the blue stuff. On the home front, I started viewing things differently. Handling things differently. It's hard to explain. There was something happening. I didn't feel the same. I wasn't the same. I sensed big changes were going to happen.

It caught my attention and consumed my every thought to the point where I reached out to a friend. I gave her a rundown of everything that had happened and was continuing to happen.

Not that I needed to because we chatted often. 

Finally, I was like, "What is going on?"

Her reply was short, but it made sense.

"The universe is shifting."

Two months later, I left a house that was paid for and all of the stuff that filled the house. I wanted nothing except a few boxes of stuff I had shipped earlier in the week.

I bid farewell to my ex who I had shared the house with for a period of time..

Since then, everything has fallen into place. It hasn't always been easy or at the most convenient of times, but when the Universe shifts, and Fate steps in, and change is inevitable, it's going to happen whether you like it or not.

The Universe has shifted off and on. When the Universe shifts, big changes are about to happen. But, sometimes, the Universe does a little shimmy shake. Those changes aren't so big and there's often very little "warning." It's more along the lines of "at the right place, at the right time..."

I've learned, when something is meant to happen, or not happen, it happens...or it doesn't happen. 

One thing that has stayed consistent over the years is when these shifts and shimmy shakes are about to happen, I get "this feeling" and I take notice a day or week beforehand.

As of late, I've been feeling like the Universe is ready to shift.

Big changes.

Like with the same experience back in 2010, I can't quite put my finger on it.

Stuff is just happening. It's noticeable.

Good stuff.

Weird stuff.

For the first time in my life, the month of February didn't suck. I didn't experience the proverbial Cabin Fever and I wasn't even tempted to write about it.

The kids are acting peculiar. Not in a bad way. They've all been glued to my side more than usual and they have moments where they just stare at if they're trying to convey a message of sorts.

The weather has been odd. Unseasonably warm. Earlier today, we had a thunderstorm.

I've been seriously considering changing my schedule. I'm not getting a lot done on the overnights. The naps I take on occasion, shortly after dinner, aren't helping. I've been getting up earlier, despite going to bed at 5 in the morning, just to have more work time.

Lobo has been unusually hyper and restless and playful.

The list goes on.

I do have to mention something that's been happening in the wee hours of the morning when I step outside on the front porch to take a break and breathe in a little fresh air.

For the past few nights, there has been a wild rabbit on the front lawn when I go outside.

It doesn't matter what time.

She's there.

She sits there, about 3 feet away, challenging me to a staring contest. She doesn't budge.

I've named her Wilhelmina.

It's not a common name. I just blurted the name out while we were outside, sizing each other up.

I whispered to her, "I'm going to call you Wilhelmina."

I'm not sure if big changes are ahead of us.

I don't know why all of this is happening.

What I do know is that the Universe and Fate speak in mysterious ways.

I'm familiar with how all of this feels.

I'm aware.

What happens next, I don't know.
