Facebook said it was either Jesus in a Spaceship or Batman?

If I believed everything I read on Facebook I would have thought Jesus entered the atmosphere in a spaceship  or Batman was coming to save the day at around 10:00 pm over the Northland of Auckland!

Let me set the stage for you….

It’s about 10 pm on a Tuesday night, I am just about asleep when…
I leap out of bed, because I am 99.9% sure the house was just hit by a car!

Running to the nearest window, followed at the heel by my loyal, super protective, and scary guard dog (ok, this is a slight exaggeration about my mati-poo but he believes it so I encourage it), Otis,  expecting to see a smashed car,  but instead (thankfully) I see an illuminated sky bright with hues of blue.

Cautiously, I walk to the front door, wandering what in the world could shake the house like that and make such a BOOM!

Nothing. Nada. Zilch.  And to top it off the sky is no longer illuminated.

I decided to inquire with my boyfriend who was driving home from a meeting, I make the call to Dean, a little nervous to tell him that I awoke to the house shaking, a BOOM, and a bright light but could see nothing.

I’ve heard enough blonde jokes in my life to know where this could go….

Thankfully, I have a kind kiwi, he was very understanding and said he saw an orange and purple sky but felt no shake.

Commencing our conversation, I felt re-assured he had atleast seen an illuminated sky, but was still perplexed by the situation.

And I wasn’t the only one my loyal sidekick, Otis, was pacing the house looking for the cause of the chaos, its safe to assume he thought it was the neighbors cat that really annoys him when she enters “his” yard, but still he was unsettled.

Extremely confused and seeking clarity, I hopped on Facebook at a local community site and sure enough others had heard and/or felt the exact same as I had heard and felt!

Yes, I went to Facebook for clarity.

Yes, that is an oxymoron and something I NEVER thought I would do!

Yes, I am embarrassed.

Oh, Facebook, good ole Facebook where you never know what you will get!

There were many thoughts being shared, over 300 comments on one post alone within minutes, some making sense, some funny, and some leaving me to question what has happened to the human race.

Suggestions ranged from the following but not limited to: aliens, spaceships, Jesus coming, a meteor, space rock, Batman, an earhquake, a meth lab blowing up, and the list goes on!

People also reported seeing every color of the rainbow: pink, blue, orange, white, green, yellow, red, and violet, literally every color!

A few people took shelter for the whole night, I saw this morning (you should have seen all the comments I woke up to from the thread I was following)!

Facebook definitely left me more confused than I was before I signed on…did I really feel, hear, and see Batman? Wow, my brother Jon would be so jealous, he was always such a Batman fan!

Refusing to get sucked any farther into the Facebook black hole, I went to bed, giving the experts time to do their work!

So are you wandering what I saw? What I felt? What I heard?

And the winner of the Facebook guessing for what was the bright light, the boom, and the shaking all about goes to (probable) METEOR ENTERING THE ATMOSPHERE!

I have to admit it’s not as cool as Batman hitting my house, but it’s pretty cool. As I can re-call it is my first (probable) meteor!

Want to see what the hype was all about? Have a look..a policeman caught it on his dashboard camera!

I had to share my (probable) meteor experience with you, it’s a pretty rare occurrence, and reportedly no one was hurt, which is awesome!

This is also a great reminder to not take everything you read on Facebook or the internet to be set in stone truth which applies not only to the loud BOOMS you hear at night, but to all things especially those that pertain to your health, healing, and happiness!

Facebook is a great social network and networking tool but not necessarily holding the same validation as other resources! So, enjoy Facebook what it is but make sure what you read is real before you believe it!

The Power of Simply Saying, “WHAT?”

“What?” in the world is going on with the people in the world? More and more I find the word “WHAT?” rolling off my tongue in utter shock in response to most things I hear these days! Sometimes, I feel like my grandma when I catch myself wondering what is happening in the world and with the people the world. We have gotten so far the root our creation, rather than trusting in God and His perfect design of the human body society has placed faith in man for fear that innate merely does not exist or in fact is not capable of maintaining our existence.  It is this shift in perspective of the percentage of humans that makes me say, think, and wonder “WHAT?”

In my opinion we don’t emphatically ask “WHAT?” enough. “WHAT?” in terms of “What are you talking about?” or “What does that mean?” or “What in the world?” And I don’t mean a weak “WHAT?” but a powerful, concerned, confused, “WHAT?” A “WHAT?” that makes the receiver of the “WHAT?” stop and think about the words that just formulated in their mind and rolled off their tongue. In my opinion, “WHAT?” is one of the most under used and powerful words that can be used to give H.O.P.E. (Helping Open People’s Eyes) and to wake people up! But, you have to say it like you are utterly confused and dumbfounded, come from a loving place, and say it with concern as to shake the current belief system of the average person on the planet earth.

My existence is very interesting, I live in the world but I don’t live with the world.  I see the world very different than the other 99.9% of its inhabitants.  Truthfully, if I didn’t have a copy of my birth certificate and the same forehead as my dad I would honestly entertain the idea that I may in fact be an alien from another planet. I have also entertained the idea that I am living in a movie similar to The Truman Show starring Jim Carey and that I am in fact in a “pretend” world where EVERYONE else is an actor/actress and the world salivates daily to watch my reaction to the nonsense I encounter, just to capture my reaction.  I’m fairly positive that neither is the case and if you know the truth please keep it to yourself and let me find out in due time, there is no rush.

It is the mindset of the majority of the people that I share this planet with that has me concerned and I find strength when I meet someone who is either from my planet or rather than sleeping they are awake.  Unlike most people I don’t believe that sick and dying is the way life was intended, that the body can not heal itself and needs the help of outside sources, that we are merely here to exist, that we have no control, and that anything I am told must be true.  Rather, I believe that sick and dying is an option, the body was designed to heal itself and simply needs no interference, I believe we all have a purpose, that we can control our own reality, and that most of what I hear from others is self-serving rather than true. While some may call me an optimist and others may claim I am crazy, there are those whose belief system is in line with mine and not only understand each other but our innates resonate at a cellular level.  Sadly, there are more that see my way of thought as “crazy” or “optimistic”; whatever the case I thoroughly enjoy the paradigm I have chosen to live in.

If I were to list out every single statement that I have heard within the last month that made me say, “WHAT?” there is a possibility that this blog would be in the running for the Guinness Book of Records for the World’s Longest blog.  I’ll list a few of my favorite words utter by others that have resulted in a “WHAT?” such as “I just got done with chemotherapy, I am healthy!” or “I’d rather be fat and sick than eat vegetables!” or “The prescription I am on made me healthy!” to all these statements I shockingly replied, “WHAT?” These are just a few of the many fallacies that society holds close to their heart and blindly follows it as concrete evidence that man is wiser than God.

In my opinion, the word “WHAT?” is a perfect wake up call, a siren if you will alerting the person with whom you are speaking to that the words they just utter shocked you and that you need explanation to understand.  It is at this time that they re-think their statement and can re-articulate if needed and or repeat the same statement.  You are now in the perfect position to ask questions regarding their “WHAT?” statement such as “Why do you believe that?” or “Who told you that?” or “Does that make to sense to you?” or “What does that mean?” These questions allow the individual to use the Socratic method to derive the necessary info to continue with their current belief or to make a necessary paradigm shift to enhance their life.

Start using “WHAT?”  Wake people up to the truth! Make them realize what they are saying is crazy! Wake them up to the truth…you owe it to them!
