Do read Suzanne Lie's excellent article: http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/straight-talk-about-ascension-sue-lie.html.
Suzanne: 'We are the ones having the difficult initiations. Meanwhile that person over there hasn't done a thing and they are just riding free and easy. This dynamic is occurring because those people are at the frequency in which the energy they put out comes back to them much later in "time".'
We lightworkers are living mostly in the higher dimensions where manifestation is instant. Therefore the effect of any behaviour or situation has an immediate impact on us. Our 3D friends will be impacted by behaviours and situations but it's delayed because they are still living in 'time'.
Like Suzanne, I have been spiritually awake for decades and I agree with her: the energy is very different 'Now'. We old-timers can see the progression. It's quite comforting actually!
