The Calm Through The Storm
I went camping this past weekend, to clear my head, in anticipation of one of my “aha” moments that would provide a list of solutions for everyone seeking to navigate this tyrannical turmoil we are all facing. I must have been busting at the seams for that light bulb moment, because the day before I left, my hot water pipe burst in my home and blew a small hole through the exterior wall, creating a geyser on the outside as well – all of which was just around the bend from the 2-story icicle that hung from the gutter.
This geyser set out on a path to flood my entire first floor, causing all of the flooring to buckle. It was all rather symbolic in a way. I had been banging my head against the wall trying to come up with solutions for weeks – something that generally comes very easy to me. Every avenue I looked down, every corner I searched around, every genius thought that entered, were all met with lawlessness on the other end, creating quite a roadblock. Thinking outside the box, finding needles in a haystack, troubleshooting and resourcing were always second nature for me, yet I suddenly found myself in uncharted territory.
While dealing with contractors and insurance companies from the comfort of my tent, I turned my focus to nature and all of the wonderful critters around me, and I took it all in. On the one hand, I observed the motherly nurturing of cats with their babies, while at the other end of the spectrum I witnessed female ducks getting repeatedly violated by males who were nearly drowning them. I was fascinated by some of the larger birds I had never had the pleasure of being in the presence of and enjoyed the taste of fresh eggs from generous chickens. The nights were shivering cold with nearby owls whistling a tune, and the days were warm and breezy, filled with life all around. I breathed it all in. Every last bit of it.
There were moments that felt like I could bask there forever and not even realize what was going on in the rest of the world, or be taunted by the cultural influencers, or effected by the fear disease, but I’ve never been able to stay in any one place for too long. In that moment, it reminded me that I can “switch” it all off at any point in time, no matter where I am. I can CHOOSE to be in a state of peace and calm, and THAT was really the answer I had been seeking all along.
I’ve always known this, and once functioned this way, but sometimes it takes distancing oneself and detaching for a bit, to get back to that space. The solutions don’t all reside in where one should live, how to prepare and navigate, or how to fight and battle all of the tyranny being pushed on us. It is about standing tall and observing it all from a bird’s eye view, detaching from it, not fearing it, not giving it any power, remaining in a state of peace and calm, being able to see and discern with great clarity, having faith and listening for the subtle guidance that comes through you. And when you are in this frame of mind, nothing can beat you, torment you, scare you, or break you down… and the answers will follow.
Why live if you have to spend all of your time and energy focusing on negative stuff or living in fear? Why have so many people stopped living? Stopped laughing? Stopped exploring? If we stop living, evil wins. Guidance and solutions will evolve from THIS PLACE. Banging our heads against the wall to resist, run, or fight back isn’t bringing resolution, it’s bringing a lot of frustration and depression for a lot of people, while keeping everyone on the negative energy hamster wheel, which is exactly where they want you. Rise above.
In this space is where creation evolves, light shines through, and the universe works with us. Remaining in this state of mind will manifest the best possible future. Whereas logic, common sense, practicality, and analysis are all incredibly important tools in the toolbox, without imagination and creation, the toolbox doesn’t exist. Instead of battling and tearing down, we need to build up and CREATE, together.
A dose of logic: Don’t financially support businesses trying to destroy us. Don’t work for companies pushing negative agendas against humanity. Don’t send your children to a school that indoctrinates. Don’t restrict your business from operating. Don’t wear a symbolic submission mask – they don’t work. Don’t listen to legacy news media, and when you do – think the opposite of what they just said. Don’t submit to tyranny of any kind. Don’t give up your guns. Never stop spreading truth.
A dose of common sense: Learning discernment is the biggest asset right now. Blindly believing is naive and counterproductive. Facts and evidence are critical but knowing their game and being able to read between the lines is necessity.
A dose of practicality: Keep food, medical, and other necessary supplies on hand, have a few plans figured out on paper and in your mind for potentially relocating and then let it go, be sure to keep cash on hand, coordinate with your community, friends and family for any potential future events such as your electricity being shut off during a freezing winter storm, a state deciding they are going to further control your civil liberties by trying to take your guns away, or a state no longer allowing you to get groceries without a vaccine id passport. Share, trade, and barter with one another because a lot of people are in need right now and this will be an important practice in supporting one another in the future.
A dose of analysis: There is confusion and chaos within the deep state hierarchy that goes beyond the US. It is fragmented. It is lacking agreement from all sides. This creates cracks – weak spots that make them vulnerable. Exploit those cracks in their engineered system.
A dose of imagination: Every night before you go to bed, spend time praying and visualizing the world in the best place possible for all. See it. Feel it. Be it. Manifest it. Visualization is one of the most powerful tools. Heal the earth and the people of the earth and remove the darkness.
A dose of creation: Every day, choose one person to help. Reflect their brilliance because it sparks creation. Build something, learn how to make something, grow a vegetable garden, grow herbs inside, crochet a blanket, cook a meal for a neighbor. Through kindness and creation, ideas will surface – all while injecting positive energy into the world.
A dose of love: You are loved. Love one another. Show compassion. Be grateful. Make someone feel good today. Build and nurture the relationships with your friends, family, and community. Together you will be stronger, and creating together will result in solutions that work best for all of you. Those creations can then be shared with other communities.
Evil will not and cannot win. There is too much love on this planet – enough to ignite a “new world” with “freedom” rather than “orders.”
Side note: My dog thoroughly appreciated every moment in nature and was mesmerized by all of the wonderful critters to observe. He secretly wished he could hunt them, but I assured him they are our friends. Believe it or not, this handsome boy is nearly 14-years-old, and he doesn’t look or act a day over 7, even after two knee surgeries – lots of love slows the aging. 😉
You’re good medicine, Corey Lynn, for dogs, humans and this chilly, leaky, thin walled bizarro world alike.
This was very refreshing! Beautifully written as always. Love all of the photos! And your Dog is so sweet. ❤️
Nicely written. Thanks for that!
Your pup looks like a content and adorable sweetie. We have two rescues. They keep us grounded and laughing at their antics. 🙏🏻🇺🇸❤️
Imagine if everyone did what you just wrote about. The best revolution ever.
This came at a much needed time for me, as anger was consuming me as I dwelled on the unfairness and injustice going on in our world. As I read, a calmness and serenity that I haven’t felt for a while started to envelope me, and I found myself taking slower and deeper breaths. The tightness that had been building up and gradually strangling me, without my even realizing the depth of it, began to lift. It was like food for my soul that I hadn’t even realized was starving. l saved your column to refer back to over and over again in the future. Thank you sharing your wealth of information with all of us, and also for helping us to keep our spirits in tact as we digest it and move forward. You are truly a gift, a blessing, and an inspiration to all!
Awe, I’m so glad you found it helpful, and I’m so sorry for your suffering. I know it’s a really hard time for everyone, and we have to really dig deep right now to stay centered and balanced. Much love.
Thank you Corey. You’re a wonderful writer-reseacher. Discovered you recently via Frank’s show, your website is such a wealth of information. Keep up the amazing work. God bless you from your head to your toes. Please give that gorgeous dog a big hug from me. Much love from the UK. Jodie x x x
Right on! Love the pic of your boy. He’s beautiful! So much of what you referenced in this writing reminds me of the “powerless” aspect we learn to incorporate in our lives in Step One. It’s hard to grasp for most individuals, especially for those of us with a deep rooted self centered sickness such as I myself had in early recovery. There are so many facets to this concept, and many people unfortunately equate it with weakness, but it’s actually very much the opposite. The main emphasis is, the only thing that I can truly control is what I say and what I do. Yes, thoughts can be controlled, but I still get tons of thoughts in my head that seem to come from out of the blue on a daily basis. People are going to do what they’re going to do. I’m the one who can allow what others do to affect me or not. Same with certain circumstances, health issues, and other things that can arise which are out of my control. It’s freeing once one truly internalizes this. It doesn’t mean that we become a doormat for others to wipe their feet on. It’s all about totally taking control of your own inner peace and free will and not allowing external forces to control you.

your photography is lovely and writing is direct, helpful and refreshing…. thank you
From one Dreamer to Another – Keep On Truckin’!
Thank you for this lovely note of grounding. Much needed and appreciated!
Corey your articles are so enlightening. I appreciate all your dedicated research. You are actually documenting history. Thanks again.
You’ve provided a beautiful perspective & lovely photos that are easily shared both with those that have maintained a calm demeanor, despite all that’s swirling around all of us. But also for those that are choosing to remain in fear, this is a wonderful source of insight & a start for many, but especially it is just that, “a start”.
That was wonderful and came at the perfect time for me to read. I’m retired and this should be the best time of my life but all this chaos is affecting it. Thanks for the reminder that I can choose to shut it off. P.s. I love sand hill cranes.
Well said- nature is the best medicine!
Good medicine Corey!
It’s hard to watch our nation circle the drain but we can choose to speak life to those in our circle.
You’re a kindred spirit. Thanks for blessing us with timely, prescient insight.
P.S.: only dead fish go with the flow. Just keep swimming!
I really love getting Coreys Digs! Corey what a drag you went through.. but the camping with your gorgeous pooch and photos of the birds and words of wisdom, I soaked it all in!!
Thanks for the light you bring us and hope Everything worked out well with the insurance companies
Things Have a way of working out… let’s hope it does so in a macro level too
God bless you Corey
Dear Corey, here I am, up in the middle of the night, can’t sleep, partially due to menopause, maybe, but mostly because of 2 super disturbing things I saw yesterday. First the CDC zombie preparedness page. Insanity.
That was topped off by the new website I saw, my son showed me, was shared on fb, promoting a ” satan class” after school program to be rolled out at public schools across U.S. ??? So…. This lovely article of yours, you are a gifted writer, truly, has given me solace tonight (well, it’s early morning now) Thank you, I will share it far and wide.
p.s. got one of your T’s for my mother-in-law who received it yesterday , She LOVES it. She just had knee surgery,
got her the “I’m Unstoppable” one 🙂
Thank you Corey for echoing, with much clarity, what many of us feel and think. Reading your lines make me feel not alone. You are a blessing.
So well put. You made a lot of people feel good with this piece. Thank you for what you do. One of my favorite places to go for the truth!

Thank you, Corey! I am so sorry to hear about your home, but am glad that you went ahead and went camping and had fun with your boy and the other critters. What a positive blog post, filled with great advice. God bless.
Sending prayers for the many families who are suffering in this time, Corey may God bless you and keep you always! Inspiration is in short supply for many so thank you for being the inspiration for many! I have been sending out many prayers for the good people of Texas lately, I wish I could afford to do more. We are all capable of prayer, it’s the first and best thing you can do for anyone who may need them! Godspeed! 🤗🙏❤
“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.” 1 John 2:15-16
When we love the world Corey, we will be distracted from Christ, the light of the world, the bread of life, the Word Made Flesh.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.” Proverbs 3:5-8
Great story . . . just found your site and am loving it. (joined Patreon too) I’m an army veteran from the sixties, but I was also a hippy when I came back home . . . and today I am completely confused as to how to fight these guys.
Peace and love or search and destroy? 🙂 . .
I am thrilled as to the volume of information on your sites and I plan to read lots of it before I come up with a battle plan as to how I should fight back. . . . anyways I am happy to meet you (bow) . . . .
Corey, I recently discovered your work after your interview on Quite Frankly. You are a great writer, researcher, and investigator! Do you mind sharing your take on spirituality? I cant quite discern it. I see Christian overtones (I’m a Christian). However, I see other New Age-influenced musings as well. In this article, you wrote “and the universe works with us”. Typically when I see “the universe” used in this context, it is alluding to pantheism.
Also, you recommend visualizing the world the way you want to see it and how that is a powerful tool to seeing it actually manifest. This sounds much like the book “The Secret” which is all about the Law of Attraction.
Thank you for any thoughts you can share on the subject.
Beautiful thoughts about creating the world we want to live in and not getting caught up in some of the negativity we are presented with. This is an opportune time to access the divine, to breathe and ground ourselves. We are here in this moment of time to make this world an amazing place full of light and love. There are so many wonderful people doing incredible things on the planet and I feel very positive about the outcome. Love and light to you all!

I’ve been falling asleep early and waking up in the night when it is quiet and others have turned the TV off, finally. Not as peaceful and luscious as your experience but an echo perhaps. Thanks for sharing your tips and input. It is in these quiet times without others’ hysterics that I can make some sense of things. Your perspective helps.
I took a journey yesterday and came to realize that I have to surrender the state I live in now to God. I need to go elsewhere. A law has just been passed that I cannot abide and won’t. And this time, it is not my job to correct it. Laws are coming to try and steal my arms, and I will not stay here and let it come my way. It’s time to bug out, before a true emergency comes and entrapment becomes a concern.
I work for an entity that helps run the internet. “One world, one internet” is their motto. It’s time to chuck them as well. The benefits are really good but their premise is not. And I believe they’re about to become irrelevant. We shall see.
Point is, it is only in the quiet seasons that I can “see” rightly. When there’s minimal clutter and noise so my discernment can be keen. Good word, Corey. Thanks.
Beautiful message. Thank you.
What can I say, your our girl bless you.
Know you are acknowledged, loved and adored as a wonderful way shower, positive soul sister torus field to us all. Bless you.
Many Bessings to All good beings.
Thanks Corey. I needed that.
Much needed medicine to my soul! We overcome evil with good! I don’t wear a mask to the grocery store, I’ve started giving gift cards to certain checkers that are always kind to me, the baggers fight over who carries my groceries out for me…
Our world is craving kindness…
Thoroughly agree with your doses of Common Sense ,logic and especially love. Without love who are we and what are as human beings.
Would like to add that, you’re pretty smart for a girl. Haha. I honestly thought Corey was a guy. But I am delighted and in awe to find out you’re a girl. Brings a warmth to my heart and a smile to my face.
Well sign me up I’m on board to help save the human race and fight shoulder-to-shoulder with my new friend.
