RT logoA Maine man was in for a rude awakening on Tuesday after a tree removal crew reported he’d threatened them with a gun. That’s when police showed up at his home, armed with assault rifles, and demanded he leave his house.

The incident began when Smith had gone out shirtless in his snow covered neighborhood to tell crew workers to get off his property, After Smith yelled at the tree removal crew, he went back to bed inside since he works at night.

Lisa Gawlas – Light Quakes, Wormholes And The Equinox – 19 March 2014

lisagawlas2These days are becoming so energetically unpredictable.  For a few hours (especially at night) I feel like I am being thrashed about in the breaking waves of a shore line, and then have bouts of such crystal clarity that I swear I can see and understand forever, until the lapping waves come crashing in again.  The evening of the 16th going into the 17th played hell on my body.  As evening descended, I swear my entire rib cage and up thru my neck got caught in a vise that just kept squeezing tighter.  As the night wore on, the coughing started again, the ability to breathe was leaving town and all I could say is… not again!!  At least I didn’t have the lung congestion this time around.  Everything was between my sinuses and my throat.  The next day, I was just worthless and energetically depleted.  By late afternoon, this feeling enveloped me.  The only way I can describe it would be to call it the utter silence/stillness.   No thoughts swirling about my head, no chatter from my team, even the body went to absolute stillness… no congestion, no coughing, no nothing.  It really was the most amazing feeling, pure and absolute peace inside and out.  I cannot tell you how long it lasted, 10 minutes, 15… 30?  I don’t know, but my good god it was great while it lasted!!
