It's a Crazy World this Week!

Global Mood This Week reflects chaos, confusion, and uncertainty.  People are contrarian and argumentative.  There is a high risk for unusual or surprising events.  For those who follow current events in the news, it may appear that the world is falling apart, or "crazy" in a big way.

You don't have to participate in the craziness!

When a manic social mood gets stretched as far as it can go, "the world" starts displaying extreme manic symptoms and a rebalancing occurs.  You can participate in the symptoms, or you can participate in the rebalancing.  It is possible, that if enough people intentionally participate in an other than manic focus, that the symptoms will be less severe as this configuration dissipates. 

Whether the news reveals the disturbing acts of an individual, group, or government; or an outbreak of natural events, it is symptomatic of a collective mood that has gotten too extreme in a direction and is seeking balance.  All natural systems seek balance.  When a society, even a global society, gets too out of touch with the rest of the elements in the system, balance happens.

Alternative Direction: if you would like to participate in the direction of balance for this particular week-- When you feel anxious or energetic, take a deep breath, slow down, and be still for a minute.  Don't spend money on anything extra or "frivolous."  Take a walk in a park or hang out in a forest or other natural setting.  Spend time without the cellphone or computer, aware of the people you are with, and/or the place where you are at.  Pay attention to your feelings; be with yourself.
