I'd say you suffer from a severe case of "conspiracy overload." I've had phases before where I caught myself becoming more and more negative because
of all the horrible stuff I perceived going on everywhere. It's very dangerous because you can easily fall into depression and hopelessness.
The remedy is strict ATS, GLP, etc. withdrawal for at least a month or so. Don't watch the news or read other political/conspiracy/environmental news
either. Ideally, stay away from the computer/cell phone/TV/radio altogether for a while.
- Take long, slow walks out in nature -- preferably untouched nature, not just some park. Don't think too much, just breathe in the scents of the
forest, feel the fresh air and sunshine, listen to birds singing and insects buzzing. Turn your brain off and just be.
- Exercise. Get some of those euphoria hormones going. Break a sweat. Go home and take a shower.
- Pamper yourself. Take a nice long bath with some fragrance you love. Buy some essential oils and sniff them as aroma therapy throughout the day. Go
see a theater play or movie with an uplifting message. Listen to some uplifting music -- no rap or heavy metal! Take a friend to a nice restaurant or
clubbing and vow to yourself NOT to talk about anything negative at all, no matter what it is.
- Whenever you catch yourself thinking about negative things -- no matter what they are -- mentally tell yourself "STOP!" and instantly replace it
with a positive thought. Remind yourself that your own little life is pretty damn good... and if it isn't, you should take concrete steps to change
that instead of concerning yourself with the problems of the entire world.
- Smile at random people on the street. Strike up a conversation with strangers in doctors' waiting rooms, at the hairdresser, at diners, anywhere.
Don't make it about anything negative. Be encouraging, supportive, fun to be around. Make it your goal every day to make at least one person happy, no
matter how small your contribution may be.
- Every day before you go to bed, "count your blessings." Make a list of the good things in your life -- the permanent ones, like a loving family, as
well as the little things that happened to you during the day. Start picking up pennies from the ground and view them as messages from God that tell
you you're loved.
The outer world is merely a reflection of your inner space. As you put out more positive energy, the outer world will start reflecting this.
Do these things for a month -- every day -- and then go for another two months after that if you can take it. It'll change your entire outlook on
life. When/if you come back to the conspiracy stuff, remind yourself that we are spirits in a human body. This life is like a movie -- you're the
actor, the director, the producer all in one. Unfortunately we tend to forget that it's a movie and identify ourselves so much with the main character
that we believe him/her to be real. Learn to detach yourself from the movie and don't get sucked into it -- keep remembering that it's just a movie
and the things that happen to the main character are of no real consequence to the actor who portrays that character.
Do all this, and you'll have a happy life, I guarantee it.
