For sometime I have felt something of a change that is on its way. started maybe in 2010? It does seem like I am seeing more animals around, and they are more attracted to certain things. I had birds so close to me the other day, and while I have fed them before, they were a lot closer than they have ever been. Getting hit in the head with their wings close, and that has never happened before. So something is up with things... not sure what though, maybe it is Mana/Energy.
You know what, I have noticed the same! I really was noticing it last night, like I could feel/sense something was happening or is happening. It got me on edge at first, but I was able to calm down by meditating.
