Hello everyone!
I am very new to yoga, but I have an incredible teacher and I have been loving it.
I am 50 years old, and am taking time to heal myself both inside and out. Most of my life has been dedicated to caring for others. In my enthusiasm, I forgot to care for myself.
I look forward to getting to know you, and I wish you each a beautiful day.
Sharon

Hi y'all, my name is Bill and I'm grateful to have found this team. A bit about me...
About 30 years ago I drifted away from the church of my youth (RC) when going to church was cutting into my drinking time. In '94 my oldest son was hit by a car while on his bike and died in ICU 3 days later. This began a yearlong spiral into the deepest, darkest pit imaginable until I had 2 choices - get dead or get sober and I didn't want to get dead.
I entered treatment for alcoholism and 3 weeks in knew it was time to return to to the God of my understanding. I joined my family at the Episcopal church my wife had returned to when I quit going. The gospel that day was 'the Prodigal Son' and the sermon was on Grace. My wife and I were asked to bring up the offertory gifts and it was walking up that I offered myself and turned my life and will over to His care.
I felt a love,peace and warmth flow over me, felt arms on my shoulders and heard a voice saying 'Welcome home, son'. Inwardly I wept.
I've been active in this church and in a 12-Step Recovery Ministry ever since.
3 years ago I was introduced to Reiki and was attuned to Level I. I am now at Master level, working toward Teacher cert. My Reiki training & practice have improved my meditation, strengthened my recovery and church life - all are so entwined there is no separating them now. A dear friend has written a book I wholly agree with - 'The Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Reiki - One Source, One Spirit'.
Today, after walking this path 60+ years I am truly grateful to be who I am, where I am :)
Thank you all for a beautiful reminder of all that is good today!
p.s. - sorry for being so long winded ;)

Namaste
When I honor that space in you where love and beauty dwells
And you in turn honor that space in me
Then we are truly in a state of oneness.

Learning 24-form tai chi and going to Kaiser's guided meditation in their psychology department was very helpful to me. I really needed the guidance from teachers instead of just reading books. Now the books make more sense to me and I can do the exercises in them because I've got the basics.

Ruthiechan, the more I hear about meditation the more I want to get in on the benefits. I'm trying but like with other parts of spark teaching there is much to learn. You are encouraging me with your post. Thanks, Linda emoticon

I started getting into meditation a couple of years ago. I find that mindfulness practice and meditation helps me experience my religion for myself instead of just doing whatever the leaders think I should do. I'm still working on being in the present moment so as to act in non-judgment instead of react in judgment. I also use the Emotion Code which feels very much like an active form of meditation to me. It's pretty awesome.

Thanks Wispy and Kaligirl for the sparkgoodies,
It's what made me decide to participate since I wasn't sure if I wanted to or not.

PS: my religion = Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, aka: Mormon, or LDS

HELLO EVERYONE! I used to be the most cynical person on earth until I discovered meditation. I have practised mindfulness meditation for the last two years and it has transformed my life and health! I am looking forward to forging connections with others and learning how to deepen and enrich my practise.

Bene, I agree with you regarding religion. You are about where I am in my openness to all forms of religion. But, having a daughter who is a Buddhist and a job in a church and being Catholic, shows how great a mom you are. I'm impressed and happy that you are in one of my groups. emoticon

Hi! I am a Catholic Christian, but my daughter is a practicing Zen Buddhist who belongs to a group in Atlanta. I do not think that religions are mutually exclusive, as all great teachers agrree on most points of morality, and I have found much to think about in reading books on meditation & mindfulness. Right now I am reading "Buddha is as Buddha Does." I have what I call my quiet time every morning for an hour, during which I "just sit" for some of the time." Some personal things: I am 76 years old, a retired teacher (math!r, and I currently work as secretary & bookkeeper for my church, its school, & cafeteria. I am a musician..I play the piano & organ for church. ALso, I am an avid reader. Looking forward to being with this team!

Hi I'm Maritza. I've been on Sparkpeople for a number of years but just found this forum. I've meditated on and off most of my life but I really focused now to use meditation to reduce my stress which seems to have taken on a life of its own. I'm 43 and married, I work in Manhattan and live in the suburbs.

Hello, Tracy! So glad you're here.

Hello! My name is Tracy and I am from the northern part of Ohio, mother of two, wife and have worked as a legal assistant for 20+ years. I joined SparkPeople about a month ago and I am new to this team. I'm looking to add mediation into my daily routine and be more mindful in all aspects of my life.

Hello all,

I have been off and on SP for over 8 years now and am trying to get back on track so I can reach my goal weight. I did reach my goal several years ago, but I have let life drag me through the mud and did some emotional eating to cope. Now I am back online and hope to make some friends for support and accountability and to overcome my emotional eating tendencies. My motto has been one day at a time so far...

Hope to chat with you soon.

Good morning! It's going to be a great day.
I joined the team a couple of weeks ago, and thought that I could just slip in quietly, without calling any attention to myself. It's my usual m.o. I like to lurk around in the back of the class and hope that no one notices.
This is a big step for me, putting myself out there like this. Thank you all for making me feel comfortable enough to do it!
This team is already making a positive impact on me, and hopefully I can return the favor.

Hi everyone!

Thanks for creating this team. I did the free meditation course with Oprah and Deepak Chopra back in the spring and it re-energized my desire to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Excited to learn from others and incorporate a daily practice into my fitness/nutrition program. Namaste.

Hi everyone! I'm Allis. I've been a SP member for a long time and joined this group some time ago, but this is my first time posting here.

Meditation and mindful eating have been a big help on this journey of mine. I'm glad this group is here, though I rarely get on SP anymore. It's nice come read the topics from time to time still. Just dropping in to say hello!

You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there.

Hello.
I just joined the group today.
I have just started to work on activating the energy of my Chakras
through meditation.
I work as a paralegal in a law office for a sole practitioner who
just turned 80 years old in April. The job stresses me out, but I
have been with him since 2004, and don't have the heart to leave
the job, he would be lost. I am hoping that working on
strengthening and activation of my charkas will generate a more
stress free energy field around me.
My page is set to private, but if you want to be friends, I would love
and welcome that, just send me a message so I can add you.
I look forward to spending time here, sharing and learning from everyone.

Hello Everyone! I'm a newbie to this team. My life is changing in many ways. I know that there are some HUGE changes looming for my career. I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist, but haven't been working in that field. I'm feeling the "pull" to get back to doing what I'm "suppose" to be doing.... My children are entering middle school next fall and the following... My husbands business is also transitioning...

Like I said, LOTS of changes. I know meditation would be so helpful to ground and center me. Now if I can put all these thoughts into action and dedicate the time to meditate regularly! LOL.

Backing down, is NOT an option!

Hi, I'm Kathleen and I'm new on this team. I'm studying a form of psychotherapy that incorporates mindfulness, so I'd like to improve my own (sometimes ragged) meditation practice.

Hi, everyone!


To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab
