This post is a significant shift from past posts.  It is something positive we can do when faced with disaster prone periods.  Some will get this, some will find it absurd.  That's OK. 

Each day for the last few years, we have spent a few hours gathering data on global society, looking at changes in social mood and watching for possible warning signs of instability.  We have to admit there have been times we’ve wanted to throw in the towel and find something a bit more positive to pay attention to.  Recently, however, there has been a breakthrough in our research, and this has given us hope.  We have treated times of high risk of disasters as something to passively sit back and watch as they unfold.  The good news is that for many global short term problems, even when intense negativity is likely to show up in the news as natural disasters or human tragedy, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  Without getting into all the details of the research right now, we would like to lay out a brief description of the immediate problem and how you can help.

The problem: In our work, we have found that social mood changes can indicate major events, whether positive or negative, about 1-2 weeks ahead of the event.  For the period March 16 – 24, without intervention, the world is likely to be manifesting some extremely negative events.  News events are likely to be surprising, crazy, and destructive in a big way.

The solution: Imagine that there is a certain type of energy that we as global society are manifesting too much of, or too loudly right now, and that we are so out of balance that something “out there” is likely to show up and try to rebalance that, whether that be a disturbed individual or group, or a natural event.  The more of us that intentionally participate in the rebalancing, in a healing, non-violent way, the less a drastic or violent solution will “show up.”

For this week:  Here are some suggestions that you can do to participate in intentionally balancing the current imbalance.  Focus on these changes in yourself, not in the world.  Just this week, if you watch television, avoid zany comedies… turn on a drama instead.  Take a stroll in the woods or a calm natural setting if you are able.  Throughout the day when you are feeling especially energetic, take a deep breath and ground yourself.  If by chance you have “extra” money, put off any frivolous spending just for this week.  Pay attention to what you are feeling… be with yourself.

We understand that global society is made up of a lot of people, but a little focused intention by just a few people can go a long way.  The actions of just a few of us can raise awareness and heal our world.
