I have had a gutsfull, I am over the bloody earthquakes we have been enduring here in Christchurch. The earth really does seem to have it in for us. HOWEVER, I am not going anywhere. So instead I am going to get me own back a little.
This Saturday the 25th June 2011, I am going to scream at the earth. I am going to give her what for, full decibel scream of anger and frustration. I have been holding in tension, stress and anger since 4th September 2010 when we had a 7.1 Earthquake, enough already. Time to let go.
At 2pm I will be in North Hagley park (quiet possibly on my own) and I am going to SCREAM like I have never screamed before. Then I will most likely laugh, laugh so hard I hope I cry. As it seems I have lost my ability to cry, tears do not come anymore, which is weird.

This is my BIG SCREAM, feel free to join me if you wish where ever you are in the world, and lets tell mother earth that enough is enough.
This is not a formal event just me and whoever else could do with a good tension release getting together and letting go.

IN the 1980's, when I attended Cornell University, it was very common for people to open their windows at 11 p.m. and do a "primal scream". (I think they now only do it during study week, the period between classes and final exams.) It had a very "Network"-esque "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" vibe, and it really did seem to relieve stress (except in the cases of people who had gone to sleep prior to 11 p.m.) -- I hope it gives you the sense of calm you're seeking. Good luck!

Wendy - I'm glad that you are declaring your empowerment to release the feelings that you have bottled up for so long. It is one technique we taught my son quite a while ago. I hope that the release is clarifying and brings you what you need.
