The Burning of Notre Dame and Planetary Empaths


Sheila Joshi is a blogging friend, and a former clinical psychologist. On the day that Notre Dame burned, I received an email from her about planetary empath symptoms she’d experienced concerning the fire.

“I don’t consider myself a planetary empath and have never wanted to be one.  I pick up way too much from other people as it is.  But I may have picked up on the burning of Notre Dame and you’re kind of a collection hub for this kind of thing.

“Notre Dame burned on Monday, 15 April 2019.  On Thursday, April 11, I felt tremendously anxious in the morning and cried.  All of Friday and the morning of Saturday was hard.  But on Saturday evening I went into extreme anxiety that lasted all through Sunday. Sunday night I could not sleep more than a few minutes at a time for a couple of hours.  I got up Monday morning, wrecked. All of this was surprising and baffling, since I had been doing much better than this, and there was no apparent cause.

Saturday night, I dreamed that a French woman told me that another French woman had told her that when I was a teenager, I had waited in the Louvre Museum in Paris for my mother to pick me up.  She never showed up and I spent the night in the Louvre alone, hiding, and it had been traumatic.  In the dream, I didn’t remember this happening, and of course it never really did.  But the only time I was in Paris was when I was a teenager.  I was lucky enough to have seen Notre Dame then, in 1977.

“A week before Monday, on Sunday, April 7, I got a bee in my bonnet to look at the painting by David of The Coronation of Napoleon, in which Napoleon is crowning Josephine.  I followed the impulse and looked at images of the painting online.  I can’t think of any reason I wanted to see that painting just then.  Today, I found out that the scene takes place in Notre Dame and the painting now lives in the Louvre.

“On Monday, once the pictures of the fire started coming in on the news, I cried off and on all evening — hard.  But I slept well Monday night, as if ‘the fever had broken,’ and I feel much, much better today, Tuesday.

“I have also always said that I did not want to psychically pick up on upcoming catastrophes unless I could do something about them.  And, so far, there has been no sign that I do that either.  I don’t think I started picking up on the catastrophe on Thursday only because this is the devastation of a beautiful, famous, historic building.  My sense and my hope is that this event will mark a turning point in the battle against the rise of authoritarianism and nationalism around the globe, that it awoke something in people around the world, and that *that* Collective Unconscious shift is what I was picking up on.

“Interestingly, Macron said this burning and resurrection is part of France’s destiny.

“This beloved building may soften people’s hearts.  It may shake people into coming together more actively.  Salma Hayek’s Gucci billionaire husband donated $113 million to the restoration before the fire was out.  Others are following suit quickly.  As of Tuesday morning, more than $675 million had already been pledged.  Countries around the world are already offering to send their restoration experts and technicians.

“As Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC) said so well on Monday night, this event is a reminder that civilization always has been and always must be re-built and re-built and re-built.  Clearly, he was also referring to the reality (which most of us forgot) that democracy, too, must be re-built and re-built and re-built.

“He also pointed out that this is the first time in history that people around the entire world could watch at the very same moment the destruction of an international symbol of civilization — of the highest of both secular and spiritual values.”

Sheila also added this:

As you know, Roger Nelson, Princeton, is head of the Global Consciousness Project that has connected random number generators around the world, and shown that they become less random, more coherent, when there is an event of global significance and more human minds on the planet are focused on the same thing at the same time.  I wrote to ask him if he saw a significant increase in coherence in the Global Consciousness Project in the half week before the fire, and especially the second half of yesterday, Monday, 15 April 2019.
He wrote back —
Hi Sheila,
I have set a GCP event for the Notre Dame tragedy. Our protocol requires specification of a limited, focused time, usually a few hours and most often 6 hours. We don’t look for unusual spikes and then try to relate them, and the system isn’t designed for long periods, so I won’t be able to address your question about the half week before. The formal event will begin at 7 pm Paris time. If that shows a strong deviation, we may do some contextual explorations.
Thanks for your interest.

    This is interesting. The Thursday before , I talked about different energies including Orbs, in my class. I had a book with interesting pictures that I passed around.
    I informed my class that years ago my family had visited Paris and while we were in Notre Dame my husband took a picture of a cross and when we looked at it you could see a few very well defined orbs in front of it. I was frustrated because we couldn’t find the picture. As I said that one of my students asked “Is this the picture?” And sure enough there it was, tucked in the pages of the book!
    We were all a bit shocked when ND burned as several commented that we had just talked about it.

      Amazing synchro, Vicki!

      I’m so glad someone else had an experience. That’s fascinating, Vicki. There must be scads of spirit beings in and around that building. The thought of them plus the way we sort of precognized the fire leads me to feel that this fire was anticipated and allowed by the Tao. Otherwise, it could have been prevented. I hope it was allowed because it will really inspire more coming together.
