Yee Haw

It has been a good couple of days.  I have been with friends and riding that wave of perpetual awareness of what I should be doing... you all know what I'm talking about.

If you feel like you're in the right place at the right time
Or if you have the option to do something, and you take it,
Or if you decide not to get on that airplane and it plummets out of the sky in a fiery blaze,
Or if you're walking through a crowd and you just feel right, and every move you make puts you in contact with another friend,
Or if you have the inkling to visit the childhood house of your friend (whom you haven't even thought about for a few months) and she happens to be visiting her folks for three hours before heading back to college (in another state).

What do you call these moments of 'synchronicity' in which everything is propelled along nicely, like you're surfing a wave of euphoria?  

I have it when I feel like I did something for someone else... and I like it.

In contrast, I have felt the exact opposite of this euphoric feeling--hard as that is to imagine most of the time--and it's awful!

I was walking trough a crowd, trying to get to a class and felt like no matter what I did was dodging around people and that everything I did was against the flow. I commented to my friend that on days like that I couldn't tell whether I was going the wrong direction or if the challenge of going against the flow was the point. She told me I think too much. But if ever there was a feeling of having the opposite of synchronicity it is that. Moving through a crowd and feeling not only out of place but as if you are going the wrong way, just by the number of unfriendly encounters and the amount of people you accidentally bump/run into (sometimes head on!)

I have felt that sensation since then and now I realize it has more to do with the current state of mind usually those days I feel depressed already and the unsynchronicity just compounds the problem. I also wonder if it is just a wierd feeling of the fact that your aura shrinks-so people actually just don't sense you before they run into you. Is that silly? Why isn't there more research on mood and auras? I am ranting.. better go back to my own blog....

No, the aura thing does make sense. If you can sense when someone is in a room with you, or once in a while tell that you're being watched, why not be able to subconsciously tell if you're going to run into someone?
