It was kind of fun pretending. <BR> <BR> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ <BR> Goddess Jettadolphinus <BR> <BR> Once upon a time there was this powerful goddess named Jettadolphinus who came down-to-earth to heal and repair the world. She had such a strong powerful, inner strength and huge bright light that it made everyone around her very frightened of her. They tried everything to hide and smother and even kill this powerful bright light. They tried drowni...

Nobody wants me, I am unlovable, unwanted. <BR> <BR> This has impacted my whole life. I made it to be that I never belonged anywhere... Thu, 6 Feb 2014 23:02:14 EST When did my weight issues start? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5613464 I had a healing session today that really opened my eyes. She asked me to go back to where I felt that my weight issues started. At first I could not think of it then I realized it really started when my mom died. I know I tapped on this already for the age of 33 but what really opened up for me is that it was also when I realized that my 1st marriage was over. I had needed my husband's support more than ever during this time of loss but all he did was close up and ignore me. <BR> <BR> I re... Sun, 2 Feb 2014 22:21:30 EST Breathing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5590851 I am currently training with the Debbie Ford Foundation and this week we have been working on BREATH. <BR> <BR> All of my life I felt that it was safer to not breathe, by holding my breath. I did not take up space. As a child, if i didn’t breathe, then I felt that I would not be noticed, I was safe as long as they didn’t notice me. Taking a deep breath made me expand, visible, real and even alive. That brings tears to my eyes… <BR> <BR> Is that safe? Is that what I want? It is so scary to...

This past week I had a bad fall but I came out of it in one piece. My ego was a bit bruised and I hurt for a week but it truly was a blessing in disguise because my blood pressure was way out of control and now am working on it.

It was if I had hadn't even been gone for 3 weeks. I just felt so horrible to say the least. Feeling like I didn't matter. I felt that everyone was so mean and cold to me. That I didn't belong there because nobody cared if I was there or not. Nobody cared if I was even alive. Feeling so down and sorry for myself. I prayed for answers, prayed as to what I needed to lear...

I thought I never had a mother who loved me, I thought I never had a mother who cared for me. I thought I never had a mother who protected me, I thought I never had a mother who was there for me. <BR> <BR> This year, I was shown through meditation that Mother Mary has been there always for me. That she has held me throughout every torture and pain I suffered as a child. She was holding my body as my own earth mother was hurt...

The recent oral surgery (over a week ago now) on my gums has opened up an old PAINFUL memory. Since I had to make myself keep my mouth open for 4 hours then another 2 hours getting everything out (packing, stitches, cleaning) stuff came up when I was 2 having to keep my mouth open. It is not appropriate to say what happened but know it was not good, for a 2 year old being forced to keep her mouth open for up to 15 men. Well, that is all I will...

Possible cystoscopy too today. This alone has brought up so much past pain. I thought I had already healed this but it raised its head once again. All the brainwashing I had as a child came right up. I was not afraid of the surgery or the big C word. NOOO. I was afraid that when she looked inside with the scope she would see that I was bad and dirty. Can you believe this?? I had it drilled in my head as a little child that if anyone would find out what ...

I am so blest! <BR> <BR> <BR> Not sure where to start.. today Hilary did her magic on me once again. As she was working on my energy having her hands on only my head, I began to hear and see the visions of Mama, Uncle C., Daddy brainwashing me over and over that every time I put a bite of food in my mouth, it was to remind me of just what I was, a piece of sh!t. With the visions of everything that was ever crammed down my throat...

So she ordered an ultrasound which came back abnormal. Now they have to do a D&C and scrape everything out and test it for cancer cells. I am more afraid of the test than the big C word. <BR> <BR> So I called up my counselor today and went to see her. I sure thought I had healed most of my childhood but it keeps creeping up.

For Zoey's 20th birthday, grandma made a cake. Oh, it's cardboard to withstand the elements. Not much taste. Zoey wouldn't care. It was from Grandma who loved her. Wed, 23 Jan 2013 19:48:06 EST The school shooting brought up tough memories http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5174620 Ever since the school shootings in Connecticut, I have been deeply depressed. I felt so deeply for those children and the pain of their families. But this was deeper than I ever imagined. Especially when they spoke about the teachers jumping in front of the shooter trying to save the children. I almost felt jealous of them. For being a hero and how brave they were. They were the good ones. <BR> <BR> I went and saw my counselor in hope for some help, it was really starting to worry me as dar...

Thu, 15 Mar 2012 22:23:17 EST Today is my Birthday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4769228 I turned 55 today and my thoughts keep going to my mother.

I am not really sure what all I am feeling, maybe sad and even nervous that I am the same age as she was. My Father died at 55 too over 33 years ago of a heart attack.... Sat, 3 Mar 2012 22:06:12 EST
