The Universe in Chaos

Rantings of a Professional Blogger

Apologies to my readers….I just spent the last hour writing today’s blog, a continuation of “Voices in Your Head”.  I just finished the blog, signed it, clicked “save” and WordPress freaked out.  I was booted off the system, had to log back in and my whole entire blog…all 800 words WAS LOST!   ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!   (If this was my other blog…I would be adding a few colorful words here.)   So, apparently we are NOT writing about truth today.  Instead, I’m being asked to make a few observations about what seems to be going on in the universe this week.  Not my normal venue….but here goes.

It All Started with Tattoos

Ok, not really, but it was the confirmation of things strange and unusual.  I do regular business with one of the local tattoo shops and have come to be friends with the owners and artists there.  Last night ALL of them posted (on Facebook) about strange happenings at the shop.  They called it a “Crackhead” day.  Strange people.  Strange requests.  Bizarre expectations and behaviors.  Not a normal day at Oshkosh Tattoo.  I wouldn’t normally throw this into the category of  “a universe in chaos” except that I have been experiencing strange feelings, emotions, observations, encounters in my own life of late.  And it seems I’m not alone.  Everyone I know is reporting overall weirdness. 

Observed Symptoms

Here is what is being reported:  Overwhelming grief.  Unnamed Rage.  Inexplicable anxiety.  Uncharacteristic restlessness.  All of these feelings would normally be explainable if we took the time to look within.  The reports I am hearing is that people are taking the time to look within and there is nothing there.  No reason for the grief.  Nothing to really be angry about.  No reason to be anxious.  It just seems to be showing up.  And if there is something there- the outward response seems to be disproportionate to the underlying cause.  To a person that is aware and who is taking the time to look within, to incorporate tools of self-healing and comfort, this is a strange time, but one they can certainly be present to.  To someone who is not aware or has never taken time to go within, these experiences will tend to come out sideways in strange, irrational, erratic, perhaps even violent behavior.  Hence, “Crackhead Day.”

What is it?

Quite frankly, I have no idea what this seeming universal chaos is all about.  But I can’t help but look at the Casey Anthony verdict as an other example of complete strangeness.  I don’t get it.  I don’t know what is up with the universe.  But this case sure seems to reflect this overall weirdness.  Strange. Bizarre. Inexplicable. The universe just isn’t right and we are all feeling the effects.

What to do?

The good news is that as the universe seems to be having some sort of temper tantrum or explosive purging, there are things we can do the ride the waves of the bizarre. 

  • Meditate
  • Pray
  • Breathe
  • Be out in nature
  • Take care of ourselves through healthy foods, exercise, creative activities
  • Jealously guard our boundaries – only spend time with those who are loving and supportive of who we are
  • Cleanse – take a bath, drink lots of water, smudge our homes and offices

While we might not be able to avoid “Crackhead Day” or the experiences of a universe in chaos, we can ride the waves and know that this too shall pass.

  1. Hi, Lauri,
    You sure nailed it with this post! Stuff really IS weird lately. I’ve had mood swings for no (or very subtle) reasons, and I’m almost ready to stop watching/reading any news. Thanks for the reminder of things we can do to help ourselves. (And I for one am eagerly awaiting Lauren Gorgo’s next post.)
    Hang in there!

  2. I feel like we are being asked to take the ride or wait until the next wave/ride comes to take us. I can definitely see the planet shifting to higher vibrations. Finally. Finally this place may start to feel like “HOME”…or atleast get closer to feeling like “home” or have some resemblance to what I remember it should be and feel like. I know much of this feeling should first be attained within, within our own God Self but it sure helps when the planet starts to meet me where I am at so I don’t feel like I am dragging a group along with me. Come on people…jump on? Are you ready or are you going to wait?

  3. I’m sorry that you lost your first blog, but I needed to hear this. I’ve been processing and processing trying to figure out what’s up. Every emotion that you talked about have been floating through my world…my inner world. As usual with times like this, I start with myself. I will do no less journeying inward, but it’s good to know that the source may be a universal shift. My question is…since the universe always tends toward good, if it is universal, why are all the emotions so negative? Are we just not interpreting them correctly? Maybe we aren’t embracing some change because it’s too vague or too much of a reach, so it seems threatening and it brings up emotions (and the stories) from when we have felt threatened in the past. What do you think?

    1. Jan,
      My sense of it is that the negative we are feeling are all the fears, etc. within us that are calling for healing and release. When I am working with clients through Reiki or Spiritual Direction, it is not uncommon for fears, negative emotions, anger, grief to show up….it is simply saying, “I’m here and I’m ready to be healed.” I take it as a good thing and a sign of growth wanting to take place. Of course, we get to decide if we want to keep these things or simply let them go! Thanks for the question. LOVE THIS!

  4. Just how do we “simply let them go”?? I tell myself things like “what’s done is done,” and ask God to take them. But stuff (or variations of it) still haunts me – mainly thru dreams. Is the answer to just keep trying? Do rituals like writing it down on a slip of paper, then burning the paper help?

    1. Well…if I had the answer to that question, I’d be anxiety-free, wouldn’t I? 🙂 There are three things I have found that work with “letting things go”……..1) Prayer Prayer Prayer and more Prayer 2) Energetic healing practices – Reiki, Healing Touch, Yoga, Chi Qong, Tai Chi, etc. 3) Time. Time seems to be the most effective tool for release. Ultimately, things aren’t released until we are truly ready to let them go. That’s the bummer part….because ultimately, it comes back to ourselves when we really want to yell, “Calgon, take it away!.’ Hang in there!
