Between Comfort Zones and Fear

Dear Ones,

Many of you feel as if you are in a murky soup of gloom. As if all you thought you achieved, is not valid. Such is not the case. This is a time of destruction of all that is familiar. But then, this information is not new to you – even though learning it and living it are two different issues.

You assumed you would move from fear and pain to joy with a few adventures into the darker recesses of your being. Such is true, just not as you expected. You did not factor in your 3D fears. You are destroying your 3D being without full knowledge of your new being, so you understandably revert to known fears of yesterday. Those fears are not based in reality.

Perhaps an apt analogy is deciding to expedite your French language skills by moving to France. Even though you were comfortable in your United States French language classes, now that you live in France it is difficult to quickly remember the phrases you need in day-to-day life. But within a few months of total language immersion, you find yourself speaking, dreaming and living comfortably in a French-speaking world.

Such is happening to you now. You do not understand the nuances of the new you, nor your new world. Some days you feel as if you belong and others as if you are a stranger in a new land. Do not fret. You will soon feel as if the new earth is the right place for you. This transition is a learning process. It is physically and emotionally impossible for you to shift every part of your being while living a somewhat 3D life within a shifting earth – and not experience at least a few fears.

You are expecting more of yourself than is logical. Your inner and outer worlds are transitioning at warp speed. Allow yourself to know and experience that thought. You will be comfortable. You will feel joy in totality – just perhaps not today or tomorrow. You are more than halfway to your new being. So you are thinking – perhaps even acting – as a new being, but you still have at least a few difficulties with day-to-day activities. Sometimes you react as a 3D being and sometimes as your new being. Not truly comfortable in either mode.

You see and sense the joy, but sometimes it feel so illusive you cannot understand why you are even trying. At other times, you fear your fears for you thought you had moved beyond that point. All in all, you often feel as if you are a new earth failure. Yet, you have  no interest in returning permanently to your 3D life.

Granted, you return to 3D thoughts in your sleep and wake states when your new earth senses do not seem to apply, but you no longer wish to live in a 3D world. You are between comfort zones – your greatest fear – conscious or subconscious. You have negated those friends, relatives and co-workers who made you uncomfortable. You have chanted and meditated about your physical being. You have completed every new earth task you could – and yet, the totality of your new world remains illusive.

Do not feel as if you are a slow learner or that you were duped. All is well. Merely that you have landed in France and do not yet feel fully comfortable with the language or culture. You will. And those you are interacting with are feeling much the same. It is as if a group of Australians landed in a place where the natives do not understand the ramifications of their land, nor that of the strangers. All are feeling the oddness of this new earth.

Perhaps Europe after World War II is another apt analogy. In 1946, most of Europe was in ruins with no central government, few habitable homes, few crops to harvest and millions of people wondering from place to place trying to find their people and new homes. Total chaos – and then it was not. It is difficult to even envision what that world must have been like. Yet, you lightly skip over that period. World War II ended and reconstruction began is how most history books cover that time. The fears, anger, retaliation, lost families, governments and homes are not discussed in any detail. So it will be for you.

You are feeling some of the same lost hopeless feeling that was true of those in Europe after WWII. Nothing is the same. You have a blank slate to create anew, but sometimes you are too tired to care. You just want to feel joy and comfort. You do not want to read one more new earth “how to.” You do not want anyone telling you how different you are – nor do you want to feel that. You just want to be comfortable again. And so you shall be – sooner than you now think possible, but not today.

Today is for creating your being anew. So you are. A being that will not feel comfortable in any 3D zone. Such necessitates tearing down your defenses, your boundaries, your comfort zones. So you are. Step by step – like salmon swimming upstream. You know you need to do something – even if you do not always wish to do so – but you do not yet quite understand why. Your only directive is your dream of moving into joy. Much as those in Europe found food and shelter before they had the energy or need to create new governments.

You are in the process of creating your inner-being shelter and comfort. Unless you have an inner urgency to do so, allow your outer world to float for a bit while you adjust to your new being. Your new world will be created as we outlined. But for now, nurture yourself and allow your being to adjust to the new you before you go into the streets to create your new world. So be it. Amen.

Thank you, Brenda, for this compassionate and wise kick in the butt! Precisely what I needed in this excruciatingly murky Now -- when it seems there is nothing whatsoever to do about anything. Bored with the waiting. Exhausted by the striving. Bursting at the seams with anticipation and unbridled passion -- and aching from lifetimes of being crammed into boxes of existence that are outrageously small and limiting.

How about we all meet at the foot of the Eiffel Tower in about 45 minutes? (:

Wow! Brenda once again making it easier for me to understand what is going on. Thanks dear, and many blessings for you.

thank you for the encouragement! i was now feeling afraid that all i believed & lived are failing. looking for signs of hope. NAMASTE!

Hi Rachel,
What a perfect explanation for us - at least me - now. France - I'm always ready for France.
Blessings, Sparkles and Love,

Brenda Hoffman 20th November 2013 10:44 am

Hi Pat,
Feels as if we're in that moment before we pop out of the Magician's hat. And away we go.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 20th November 2013 10:46 am

Hi Leonardo,
One of the reasons I love channeling is that it helps me understand. We really are in the transition as one - despite our individual paths.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 20th November 2013 10:48 am

Hi Queens4Freedom,
I think it's much closer to the song (even though the Carpenters aren't my favorite)"We've Only Just Begun" Not in terms of process but in living in love and joy. YAY for us all.
Blessings, Sparkles and Love,

Brenda- your message is truly a God send. Lately I have been frustrated between being tired, feeling unmotivated and an urgency to 'do something' - to find joy, but not knowing how...confusing to say the least. I'm feeling more ok with how I am. Thanks again.

with love,

Ktstreitz 20th November 2013 11:18 am

I'm in!

StellarWings 20th November 2013 11:45 am

Thank you once again Brenda, for helping me in understanding the nuances of my new earth being-ness. During the moments of confusion, or while in 3D situations/feelings, when I really would like to chuck the mix all away (!), I am able to return to who I am now with joy and a lightness of heart when I read your messages

moonshadows sun 20th November 2013 12:47 pm

Brenda! Brenda! Brenda! You dropped the Parliment-Funkadelic, Star-Child/Sir Nosed Devoid-of-Funk/George Clinton Bop Gun "BOMB" on this post! Go You!!!!

Mik 20th November 2013 1:23 pm

Thank you Brenda,,very encouraging,when that is just whats needed.
And i loved the way Rachel summed it all up,,exquisit

Kara Demonet 20th November 2013 1:52 pm

Beloved Brenda, this is so perfect. I am posting on my FB Community Page.
Thank you for your High Wisdom
Love, Kara

bettina 20th November 2013 5:23 pm

Thank you, Brenda! Today I experienced existing in 3D and old worn out systems at my job: Education. I held my own...and it was exhausting a sensitive to keep the bubble strong outside and maintain 'even flow' within. After my workday, reading this and as I type I realize how hard I am on myself at times...wanting to just 'be done with it' and get to the celebration POST 3D, yet too tired to care or conjure a spin on the 'manifestation wheel of fortune'. So, I will follow the advice and be easy on me, pat myself on the back for a job well-done (because I was aware of similar scenarios of long ago and how I used to 'play' the game) and be with all these beautiful people here...cheering each other on. 'RAH!' :)

kay 20th November 2013 5:35 pm

Good one, Brenda. And I love how Rachel summed it up, too. Since we're no longer locked into time or space, I'm going on the assumption that I haven't missed that party at the foot of the Eifel Tower. Count me in, too.

cyndy 20th November 2013 10:59 pm

Liked this alot. And yes Rachael, you put it in a nutshell the layer of sometimes murky soup I have been in. "Bored with the waiting. Exhausted by the striving. Bursting at the seams with anticipation and unbridled passion -- "

Hi Kate,
Aren't these emotional roller coasters something?

We went through something similar in puberty - we've just kind of forgotten until we interact with kids in the midst of puberty. We're fine. My channel and every other channel I've read just says how well we're doing, how fast we're moving - that includes you....and all of us!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 8:57 am

And so am I!!!

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 9:02 am

Dear StellarWings,
I keep thinking we couldn't start the new earth process in full until we had some means of instant communication to support, laugh and cheer one another. Walla! The Internet.

Just think how lonely it would be trying to sort out our feelings, including fears, during this transition without the Internet.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Dear MoonShadows sun,
Bombs away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 9:08 am

Dear Cayt,
This adjustment stuff is uncomfortable at best for many of us. We're so used to failure - not many felt successful in the Old Age there was always something more to fight for - that we expect us to be the one failure when everyone else succeeds.

I don't know of anyone who had ridden all these emotional/physical/spiritual waves without some doubt or fears.

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 9:11 am

Dear Mik,
We're in this together - meaning we experience fear, joy, doubt and anger as we transiton into a different human world of joy.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 9:14 am

Hi Cyndy,
And we continue on - like salmon swimming upstream or the first explorers not knowing what was beyond the trees or water but needing to find out. Adventuresome beings or what!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 9:17 am

Dear Kara,
Thank you. I'm so glad this channel resonated for/with you. Sharing my channels with others is one of my great joys. Channeling the info is yet another - I learn something new every channel!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2013 9:23 am

Dear Bettina,
Oh I am so glad you're patting yourself on the back for a job well done. This transition is so similar to what the explorers must have felt as they discovered new lands. Great excitement about the possibilities, yet fear that they were traveling in the wrong direction. Yet they couldn't stop exploring because their need for freedom and new land (and abundance/resources!) was so deeply ingrained within them.

And so it is for us. We're creating a new world which will impact the Universes. Not a small task but one we're thrilled to be part of (much of the time!!!!!!!!)
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Tiff 21st November 2013 1:30 pm

Lovely reminder and encouragement, Brenda. Thank you. :thumbs:

Brenda Hoffman 22nd November 2013 10:56 am

Hi Tiff,
Thank you! This is one of my favorite channels too!
Blessings, Sparkles and Love,

As always Brenda, your messages address the concerns and self doubt of us Baby Boomers tend to get caught up in. Your reassuring words of encouragement make such a difference. My husband and I live out 'in the middle of no where' but we know why we're here. Your message keep us grounded when the energies get so intense and we 'think' our bodies will just crumble. When I imagine the 3D world collapsing I recall that movie "The Never Ending Story." The characters feared the "Great Nothing" swallowing up reality as they knew it...I can't remember how it ended, but it just gives me an idea of what is happening to the old energy world as we observe and create the process of transformation. That word PROCESS is KEY ;-)

Brenda Hoffman 23rd November 2013 7:32 am

Hi Mary and Dave,
I so agree with you - "process is the key." And like you, I feel so blessed to interact with all of you via Spirit Library and the Internet.

I contend that as we reach or strive for a new level of knowingness, we automatically start clearing another piece - kind of like when you take an advanced course you study and work with more advanced materials. With that train of thought/belief,

I get kind of excited when my world seems jumbled in one or more of the thousands of ways possibilities. This week with company I can't remember words!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,
