Good evening. Nice day today. We had a really big storm come through during the night. I never hear anything in this apartment, but the weatherman said it was over an inch,and for this area, that's a lot. More coming in tonight through part of the morning tomorrow. And the most powerful one is supposed to come in Saturday night through Monday.

So, I went to the market and bought a lot of food so I don't have to go out in it until Sunday when I go to my son's house for my granddaughter's 22nd birthday dinner. Spent way too much but I have plenty in the fridge for a change. But I have to take the dog out for his walk so I hope it isn't raining then.


I decided to keep using the oils and take my tummy pill if the tummy isn't happy, and last night, I slept like a log. Even with the new storm coming in, my legs are barely making any protest. Yay.

Ann, the swaying is also a form of dowsing. There are several ways to get answers besides just using a pendulum - swaying like you described, Putting forefinger and thumb together and using your other finger to break it apart. If it separates easily, it is no, and if it doesn't, it's yes. I sometimes use them if I don't have my pendulum with me or don't want people to see me using it. As time goes by, I'm not so shy about it, especially when I go out to eat. Can't be too careful when you have celiac.

Still haven't been able to get to the washing machine. Someone is always using it. Maybe tomorrow or at the latest Sunday when the cleaning crew and the weekday renters have gone home for the weekend. Thank goodness I have plenty of clothes. But I'd love to get them put away clean. Oh well.

I put rosemary oil in the diffuser today along with the peppermint and the frankincense oils. I think it helped. I went on line to see if I could find anything about conflicts between the oils and my medication, but I couldn't find anything. So, unless I feel really yucky again, I am going to keep doing it as it is definitely working with my arthritis.

Big monthly birthday party tomorrow evening with the tenants here in the apartment house. The food is usually very good and stuff I can eat, and it is the only time the tenants all come out to celebrate, at least most of them. There are always a few who never leave their apartments. Their loss.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow. Hope you have a really good meetup tonight, Jetta.

The Macramé is AMAZING!!!!! I saw a 'real' rainbow today.... so pretty!

From my life today: emoticon 1-19-17 Getting everything done! YES! Off to Zumba emoticon I almost gave up walking today, with our sweet doggie, because it was suppose to rain & be VERY windy. But I decided to get it together, right then & go out before the rain started. After all it was not raining, 'right now". It felt GREAT!!!!! LUCY pup was thrilled! I walked even farther than usual, because I knew she would be lock in for quite awhile. We had a blast! YOUR inspiration is what keeps me going! Thank you! emoticon

My arms are sore and acting up so i will wait a few days to do my macrame again. I have class tonight so have been getting ready for that. I pray that lots show up. I had to postpone it twice because of the snow and icy streets but all is good now.

I even opened up the house to air out, the temp said 50, can you believe it?

Got to run.......

Good to see everyone!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Good to see you Sue! That's the reason I stay away from the oils. I have had a few for years and only use when necessary.

Sorry Claire, I have to disagree on the critical thinking being taught at college level. , you're young and learning so much at that time in elementary school etc. I can't see you understanding the concepts or having the focus to know you're practicing critical thinking. Although you are learning it fundamentally in a round about fashion. Perhaps a senior in high school could relate well to that type of class.

That's why I like this team, we can voice our own opinions freely.

HUGS ladies!!!

Happy Thursday!

My week seems to fly by with not working Mondays. Love the vibe of the chat lately. I love learning more about meditations, oils and pendulums from you guys - I soak up all the info! I am new to this life so I am still finding my way. It can get so overwhelming with everything around but lately I do seem to be drawn to oils, crystals and pendulums so I think I will focus on them for now. Just wish they were not so expensive, especially the oils. I would like to try that mixture you recommended Sharyl for sinus but I just ran out of peppermint and don't have the lemon. I will have to stock up when I have some extra money.

Well I should get back to work. I hope everyone has a blessed day!


Happiness & Health - Sue

Good morning all! It's sometimes hard to keep up with what is happening with everyone here (without taking notes) so if I miss anyone, know that you're still in my thoughts and prayers.

Sparkling - good to see you posting again. Sometimes a break can help us refocus. You may not have intended it that way, but it happened. Glad your mom is well.

I finally left work at a decent time yesterday so the DH and I could enjoy a nice dinner out. We both ended up with tummy issues right as we got home. Just goes to show you that even fancy restaurants can have food issues.

Jetta - glad you didn't hurt yourself on the ice - even slow motion falls can leave us a little sore later. Take care and be careful.

Joanie - I think my critical thinking class was one of my favorites because we also learned a lot about learning types and team building. I think it's sad though that colleges have to teach that as a separate class when it's something we should have all learned WHILE we were in elementary and high school during our regular classes.

Peaches - hi hi! I hope you, the DH and the kitties are doing well.

Sharyl, Kathleen, Ann and Sue - I hope you're all doing well today. Ann - glad you're getting so much time with your grandchildren.

Well, must get to work. Have a great day all!

Good morning,

Stopping in quickly before the meditation.

Made cookies and pumpkin bread with my granddaughter yesterday. Felt like I lost the day but she is worth it.

Kathleen - do you muscle test? I muscle test by holding the object close to my heart. If I sway forward, it's positive, sway back is negative for me, no movement, I consider neutral. I also have the Physician Desk Reference for Herbal Medicine if you ever want me to look something up for you.

Sue - glad you are finding things to help with your knees and back.

Joanie and Jetta - Glad you are enjoying the meditations. You might want to read Chunyi Lin's book.

Gotta get ready. Hi Sharyl, Peaches, Claire, Sparkling and anyone else I missed.

Peace, love and light. emoticon

Good morning!

THat's beautiful Jetta--coming along nicely.

Sparkling sometimes taking a break from here will let you rethink, refocus, etc. I can relate not being able to post some evenings I have one heck of a time on my phone.

Have to remember the water tonight Jetta. I thought of it last night but was already at computer and just didn't go down to get it. I've been reading afterwards before bed and sleeping better. Almost done with A path with Heart. Don't know what I'll read next. I have many books here so we will see.

Peaches how are you doing this week? How's work?

Loving our chats here. So active and conversational!

Reading the lecture notes for the critical thinking class I am seeing different types of personalities etc.in everyday life. Very interesting stuff.

Lets make the best we can of today. Stay positive and in the now. Namaste

Me too! Today was day 5 of the meditation! Every day for 7 days and I feel wonderful. I love this energy and light. I am floating!

Just finished the one for tonight. Can't make the one at 5am though. Too early for me!

Good to see you Sparkling! Glad your mom is well!

I slipped in the ice yesterday before it rained. Luckily it was in slow motion and I didn't get hurt. The snow is almost all gone now!

Kathleen, I love pendulums too, will give a class on them and I am ordering some things to make some for my students too. Be careful with the oils though!

Sue, good to see you. It is ok to be in a funk sometimes! Just don't stay there!

Ann, busy bee, glad your brother will be closer to you too!

Joanie, I am still feeling good about the meditations, I think they are helping.

Sparkling, what are you up to lately?

Sharyl, busy girl, wish I could help you!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Try diffusing the oil it will still give benefit and not react as strongly

Good morning. Lovely, cool morning but rain supposed to come in later this evening and last through the weekend. That never happens here in So. Calif. But there it is, and we need it.

Not sure the oils are agreeing with me. I got a brochure with the new rosemary oil, and it said that because it is so powerful, it may not agree with regular medication. So, I tested it with my pendulum, and it said it is not compatible with the flecainide I have to take to keep the heart beat regular. So, I may have to send it back. The other oils seem to be okay,but even then, I'm not really sure my body likes them.

I depend on my pendulum for a lot of answers - sometimes they're right and sometimes they're not. I have a new pendulum that seems to be more compatible with me. I do meditate and that helps the guides answer my questions using the pendulum. Some guides don't like the pendulum, but others are okay with it.

And with that, I'm off to get my blood test done. My doctor needs the results before I go see her next Tuesday. And then lunch with my son. We were going to meet yesterday, but I didn't feel up to it so he changed it to today;. Highlight of my week.

Have a wonderful day.

Today I am going back over to finish up the painting so that I can get my space organized - I don't like the cabinet being the color it is so I am going to change it. Busy day today. The lesson in my group today has to do with gratitude - I am sooo grateful for you all!

Kathleen - have you tried to meditate with the Ylang Ylang when that happens? I think the meditation could help with that too *hugs* scary though

Joanie - good for you for getting some movement in where you can. Feel better - I am right there with you on mold - have you tried essential oils? Diffuse at night - I will send you a video about essential oil 101 (safety) on FB Messenger - the blend to diffuse for allergies is lavender, lemon, peppermint, and thieves (you wont see thieves on most ppls BUT it really does help with inflammation of the sinus cavity AND with mold)

Ann - dang that seriously sounds like a LOT of work - it will be amazing when its done though!! I am going to look at the meditation and do it tonight!

Clair - I hate it when I don't sleep well, I never eat as well when I am overly tired - unless I am reaaaaaally prepared

Jetta - gonna try the meditation tonight!

Ann - I meant to message you yesterday but the day got away from me. If you need anything, please let me know!

Sharyl - thanks for the kind words of encouragement. I figured out that the link you shared had a space in it. Not sure why SP does that with links lately but I joined your group and look forward to being a part of it!

Claire - thank you as well and you are right, I need to get back to my stretching. I was setting my timer at work and every hour standing up and stretching. Sometimes I get so busy I can sit for hours without getting up and then my legs/knees are worse. I have not been doing the stretches since my back problems but its much better now and I have to get back to it!

Joanie - I will have to look up and try some strengthing exercises. I feel so limited right now but the best thing for me is to move so I will just have to pull up my big girl panties and do it! Lol

I will admit that lately I feel like I have been in a fog and no wonder with the drastic changes in the weather and my body aching so much, but I have been meditating and last night I put on some chakra music I had found on my Prime Music player and I feel more like my old self today. Or should I say young self? Lol

I wish everyone a blessed day and don't forget to smile! emoticon

Good morning all! So tired when I left work yesterday and didn't sleep too great last night but feeling OK.

Kathleen - I have an irregular heartbeat that acts up every now and then. It always scares the bejeebers out of me but my doctor says it's no big deal. I try to sit calmly and breathe slowly/deeply to calm it down. They did try various medications to keep it regular, but the one that worked best gave me hives! Another one dropped my glucose so low, I almost passed out one morning and the third one dropped my blood pressure too low. Oh well. At least you have something that works. I'm betting that your little walk with your dog helped too.

Sue - sending you healing thoughts for your legs and back. The only way I can keep my back happy is stretching. I hope you find something that works for you.

Jetta - be extra careful in the ice.

Sharyl - thanks for the add.

I know I've probably missed some people - have a great day all!

Good morning,

Thank you for your kind words. My sister is having many tests this week and her surgery is the 6th.

I talked to my nephew last night and they are packing my brother up and moving him from FL to NC. They are putting his house on the market. I am glad he will be closer to me and they plan on coming up in the spring, for the cherry blossoms I think.

We are getting ready to sell our 68 Camaro so we can empty the basement into the garage. We are tearing down the paneling and putting up sheet rock, extending the office to make it a bedroom and putting ceramic tile in the full bath down there. I think I am going to spray the paint and then put carpet in just before we list it. This will be one of the biggest jobs to do. Tiling the floors in the 2 full baths upstairs, spraying the fiberglass tubs and changing the sink tops and faucets; new countertop, sink and faucet in the kitchen and touch up paint in the bedrooms.

We are going to start emptying the attic soon, ugh...this will be a big mess! Can't wait to have a yard sale and get rid of all this stuff.

Gotta get ready for qigong meditation.

Have a great day.

Mid week hello and good morning!

Was a busy and felt congested yesterday. Warm, rain, damp, equals MOLD. Will have to use the flonase again this morning. Winter is taking its toll on me again.

Logged into the class last night, have reading to do.

Tried my mini stepped yesterday morning but very briefly. Can't push it with the knees but I will try a bit here and there.

Kathleen what would happen if you did laundry past 7pm? I would say to the landlord cleaning people tie it up I have no choice. Perhaps landlord should get a different set for cleaning people to use. Hope you have a good day.

Sharyl I know that tired feeling lol You've been busy getting everything ready and on here!

Good day all!

Good evening. The last beautiful day for a while. I was out enjoying it for a while. But we need the rain so I'm not complaining.

Ann, I am so sorry for your loss. So hard when it hits so close to home. I pray all is well and that everyone is taken care of.

Last night was not fun again. Woke up at 3:45 with my heart racing and pounding. Scares me when it happens although they say it isn't dangerous for the heart. I had just gotten my Ylang Ylang essential oil a couple days ago so put some on my heart and it calmed the heart down right away. Woke up again about 7 and the heart was racing again so I put more oil on it, but this time it didn't do much. So, I took an extra heart medication. Took a while to calm down and left me feeling yucky. So, I let both my son and the organizer for the senior dinner tonight know that I couldn't leave the house. I also was supposed to go for my blood test, but postponed that until tomorrow morning. Hopefully, I'll be okay to get that done first thing in the morning.

Took the dog out for his walk. About half way around the library, I sat and just enjoyed the lovely weather and the screaming parrots that live in the trees. When I came in, the cleaning crew was just finishing cleaning my apartment so it was nice to be in a nice clean environment again. It never gets real bad and the girls come in every other week and clean it up for me.

My new rosemary oil came today so I plan to make good use of that. Wonderful for the mind and calming myself down. I plan to dump a few drops into the diffuser with the other two oils and see how I do with that.

Blood test tomorrow and I meet my son for lunch then instead of today. Then I can come home and try to make use of the washer - hard to get to it as the cleaning people keep it running all day, and we are not supposed to use it after 7. Oh well.

Have a wonderful day.

Ann, sorry about your loss, that must be hard on both counts. Love you girl!

I love it when we go to the thrift store and something reminds me of something LONG ago!

Yes, I was working on my macrame from the left to the right! Not sure what I will do next, praying it will be shown to me too!

Raining all day here, but snow is not melting too fast. Ice rain supposed to be here any minute so we will see!

Have a good evening!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Ann sorry for your loss and the diagnosis. I hope the cancer is a treatable one. Prayers . I really wish they'd cure cancer!!

Claire busy here at work too!

Sue I do the same when not feeling well. I think most of us do. Just get better. Hydrate. Google some strengthening exercises for your ailments. Could help. Feel better!

Lunch time and I'm hungry! Sandwich, fish crackers and spicy v8. Not best choices but what I had at home and still healthier than what I could buy here.

Good morning everyone!

Sharyl - congrats on becoming a team leader! You are very sweet for sharing your gifts with us. Thank you for the feedback on my dream, I did respond back on the thread. I tried to look your group up on facebook but it gave me an error, so I did send you a friend request.

Jetta - love the wall hanging and using a branch is such a cool idea!

I had a relaxing weekend and was able to get some stuff done around my apartment. This week I need to get back on track. Since I have been battling back and leg/knee issues I have been having slacking in making better food choices and portions so need to watch this week and increase my water. I think one problem was I might have been a bit dehydrated. I drank so much water over the weekend, I just could not get enough. Was up half the night peeing but feeling better today!

Happiness & Health - Sue

BElieve in YOUrself

Good morning all! It appears to have been a busy day on here yesterday. I enjoy shopping at Goodwill but don't always find something I want - my house is overflowing as is. I do look for mason jars when I go and as long as they aren't asking $1 each or more for them, I'll usually get them but they are hard to find. The funniest thing I found once was an exact match to the crock pot the DH had when we married. I didn't get it but I got tickled when I saw it and came really close - I need a new lid for it.

Sharyl - I also sent a friend request and liked your page. I look forward to seeing your posts.

Kathleen - it sounds like the oils are working for you. Hopefully you'll keep moving in a positive direction with getting more active. It sounds like you're going to be pretty busy today and tomorrow.

Ann - good to see you around more and I know you're enjoying your grandchildren. Sorry to hear about your family members and will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.

Gotta get busy (or busier) at work. Have a great day all!

Good morning,

It has been really busy here. My sister in law died this weekend and my sister did get her cancer diagnosis. I am worried about my brother and have been adding him and my sister to all of my healings.

Was happy to hear some of you are doing the qigong calls and meditations. Spring Forest Qigong was designed by Master Lin to be easy to learn. He studied under 20 Masters to create this version. He wants a healer in every family and a world without pain. My 3 year old granddaughter does healings now and the 1 year old climbs in our laps every time the meditation comes on in the evenings.

Interesting about decluttering and chakras. Sounds like what I have learned in Feng Shui. For example, I keep my stove, oven, microwave and toaster very clean because that is your heart energy, etc.

Gotta go, meditation starting. Have a great day.

Morning!
We have rain today and high close to 60. Unfortunately my sinuses don't like this. Odd weather for PA so up and down. Back to work today too.

Sharyl Do you have a FB site also? Glad you did good at the Goodwill. I saw so many of the black mesh desk accessories yesterday ( I have some at work--like them). Really wanted them but not necessary (at least at the moment). Funny but if you would ask me what bargain I found yesterday was the best I'd say the lid organizer(never had one before) lol I can't stand that all our lids were just thrown on the bottom cupboard. We'll be married for four years and I am trying to still decorate our home with items that are 'ours' not from the past. Some things I just can't replace like our headboard (I've cleansed and protected it etc.)but will did get a new mattress set last year. It just takes time.

Jetta very nice work! I love how you have it on a tree branch bringing in the natural element.

Hope everyone's doing well and have a good day. So busy today for me...
Namaste!

Hi.

So far, so good today. Lovely day today - about 65 degrees out. I went to my new dentist for a checkup - took about 2 hours before he got to me and I got about 5 minutes with him. But his assistants took x-rays and I filled out a bunch of paperwork. Looks like I only need one crown replaced as the gold has worn through - $600 - but that will have to wait. I go back in about 3 weeks to do the cleaning. I like the staff - not sure about the dentist himself yet.

Sharyl, re the cards. Of the 3, the one I chose is certainly the most apropos for me. I do need balance in my life - not from work but from idleness. I'm waiting for money, furniture, etc., etc.

The oils are working pretty well for me. I had a leg ache and a tummy ache when I got up, but putting peppermint oil on both the tummy and the legs took care of that. Nice to feel almost good again. I didn't get quite enough sleep but hope to make up for it tomorrow.

I go for a blood test tomorrow or Wednesday - I will probably wait one more day. Housekeeprs are coming in tomorrow and I want to make sure the place is at least straightened up and maybe wash clothes if the machines aren't in use. My son wants me to meet him for lunch tomorrow instead of our usual Wednesday and I can't get everything done if I go for the test and meet him. Plus my monthly senior dining group is meeting tomorrow evening for Mexican food. Should be fun.

As soon as I can afford it, I want to hit our thrift shops for some furniture pieces. I had found a wonderful dresser and mirror for $300 but my son talked me out of getting it. Damn. It is long gone now. Oh well. Something will show up again, I'm sure.

Have a wonderful day.

TY Sharyl!!! I replied to it. I was kinda on the same path with you.

TY for the cards as well

Had a good day. Some great buys at Goodwill!!! Didn't find a purse but that's ok! I purchased more curtains and silk plants! Oh and my friend was selling a canister set so met her and got that too! It fits with our kitchen clock and DH was happy as his mother had the same set! Was meant to be!

Work tomorrow for me Claire and start the online critical thinking class, including tonight four more days of the qigong meditation. I am so blessed and content! TY Lord and angels!!

Hope the dentist went ok Kathleen!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Stay positive!!

Thank you Sharyl. I had picked #1.

Kathleen - I too hope your drought has ended. When California is too dry, it affects everyone.

Back at work today. I'm carrying stuff back and forth between work and home right now - personal and work related. I needed to do some things this weekend and it just didn't happen.

Sharyl - our middle daughter is getting married in July at the beach. She's doing her best to keep it simple but I'm not sure that's truly achievable, but we will try.

Gotta get back to work. Have a great week all!

Your weekly reading - ***STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN"T PICKED YOUR CARD YET!!***

If you picked card number 1 (like I did) you picked 7 of water - this shows that you have some chakra work to do - (go figure right?) It also says that the time has come to make your decions already and stop procrastinating! (message received!!)

If you picked card number 2 this week you got the Balance card - (we had this card last week too) Did you pick this card last week too? If you did reaaaaaally take this to heart!! - This card is saying that you are not having enough balance in your life - you need to put find a balance in the different areas - family life, work and self - You can't continue to pour all of yourself out into everything else and not take care of yourself - it will come back to bite you in the end. It also says that moderation is needed at this time.

If you picked card number 3 - you picked 5 of fire. This card shows that you have too many irons in the fire and that your goals are competing with each other. Its time to pick the ones that you are most passionate about and work those and try to deligate or find help with the others -- or possibly let a few things go.

Morning!

Lots to do today!

TY for posting the cards! I do one weekly on FB with Kate Spencer.

Off today YIPPEE!

I think decluttering and purging, cleaning is an ongoing process. lol Sometimes it's hard to part with stuff you know you should as you have to get over that emotional attachment.

Gotta get dressed shortly....bbl namaste

Good Evening

Nice cool day today. About 63. Going to get warmer until Wednesday and then rain is coming back and should stick around until the weekend. I think the weather girl said they are expecting 3 storms to come in, one right after the other. I pray this is the end of the drought.

Went to lunch with my weekend friend today. I think she has Alzheimers but it is in the early stages. Her mother died of it. She drove out to my area to meet me for lunch today, and when we left, there was a bad wreck on the freeway near where we were so I told her how to get to another freeway but she was scared to take my directions. I showed her on Google maps and she couldn't figure out the route. And she lived around here for quite a few years, years ago. The area hasn't changed that much. I'm not sure how much longer I can meet her for lunch. I'm afraid that when the Alzheimers really kicks in, she will not be one of the nice ones. Some are very sweet and kind and others turn into being not so nice. All I can do is bless her. She will have nothing to do with oils, acupuncture, EFT or anything that isn't prescribed by a doctor. So that's not an option. Oh well.

I woke up feeling better today - found out that sometimes people have to detox when they first start taking the essential oils so they don't feel very good for the first few days. I think that was me. But today, my energy came back and and noise from upstairs didn't bother me so much. I just ordered another bottle of rosemary which is good for memory.

Tomorrow, I go to the new dentist for xrays and exam. My old dentist quit his practice so I have to hope and pray this new one doesn't find things that don't need to be done yet. I looked him up on Yelp and he has a good reputation, so we'll see how he is. I just pray for a good outcome.

Sharyl, I pick card No. 2, in the middle. Hope it is a good one.

Have a lovely day tomorrow.

So I am going to post my weekly reading that I do for my group on Facebook -- basically I will post on Sundays - you pick card 1, 2 or 3 and I will post the meanings on Monday.




Jetta - keep up the work on that I want to see the finished product - I have a lot that I am going to be working on in the near future!!!

Joanie - I cleaned and decluttered the whole downstairs - I aim to do the upstairs, run errands both personal and for my business and get the new office decorated this week in between seeing clients. *whew!* ready for a nap already!! lol

Cmbelisle - things ARE coming together - so stupid excited -- wedding??

Sue - I posted a response for your dream.

Cleaning day for me too Joanie! It is in the 30s here so the snow and icy roads are still here. I did make it to the craft store looking for beads for my macrame though.

This month is already flying by!

Hi all. Just finished reading all the posts.

Sharyl - sounds like things are coming together. Congrats.

Sue - glad your paycheck isn't being affected much but understand how stressful work changes can be.

Jetta - I love how much fun you're having in the snow. It's in the 70s here this weekend and gorgeous.

Kathleen - good to hear that the frankincense is working and hope the peppermint does too.

Joanie - love that you're taking classes. I remember many nights on my computer up until late when I was finishing my degree.

Well I'm relaxing this afternoon while the hubby helps find rental houses for the wedding. Have a great day and week ahead.

Good morning!

It's 'brisk' here. Chore day for me. I won't have my tracker on as I'll be cleaning etc. Sometimes I do that so not to have to keep removing it although it's waterproof.

Feeling a bit tired. Had trouble sleeping last night, nothing wrong, just kept waking up.

What are you doing today?

Wow, I love that and Congrats too! I am so happy for you girl!

When we woke up this morning it was 16 and now it is in the 30s. they are worried about flooding because of LOTS of rain coming Monday and temps raising too. Oh well, all the beautiful snow will be gone! I have loved it sooooooooo much!

I am working on my macrame and I ordered chakra stones to put in it too. I am thinking of adding crystal beads as well, but not sure. Love creating things!

Hey ya'll -- thank you for the grats - so super excited!!

So the book that I am reading that in is Holistic Decluttering by Paula Brook Green -- here is an exert that shows what I was talking about -



So it is saying in the book as you declutter your home you help your Chakras -- it actually really makes sense to me.

Happy Weekend!

Good morning...didn't sleep to well last night but I only work till 3 and I have no plans other than cleaning and relaxing this weekend so I think I can muddle through for a few hours.

Sharyl - congrats on the space! As Joanie asked I would be also interested in reading that article about placing chakras around your home.

Joanie - I hear ya on the weekend chores. I always promise myself that I will do more in the week after work so I can free up my weekends but I'm always too tired. Lol Its a vicious cycle! Lol

Well I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!!

Happiness & Health - Sue

Sharyl, have you ever thought about joining Meetup? It will let you get the word out about your classes, skills and help jump start your new career. It does cost though. If you go to pretend to set up a new meetup and back out before paying, they will email you with an offer of half price to do it. You can always do it for 6 months and if it doesn't work out, leave the meetup. But I have met a lot of wonderful people. I just restarted my meetup group here in November. I had one in San Diego for about 5 years and had 450 members. I now have 78 members in my new Meetup here in WA. Meetup does all the advertising for you. You can look at my meetup group and even join to see what it is like. I feel that you want to do what I am doing from my home. Meetup is not to advertise to sell stuff but you can sell your things at the meetup meetings. If you want to know any more about it, message me. This is my meetup:

https://www.meetup.com/meetup-group-
LU
MqcTsL/


I can help you get started too.

Kathleen, glad the noise stopped. I do need to learn more about the oils.

Sharyl, I love the pictures and your wonderful words, I usually learn from you too girl!

Sue, glad you could see the positive side of it. That is the way to go. LOOK at the GIFTS! Way to go girl. Today was our first day out driving to the store and I could just keep going all over is so beautiful!!! But still is icy and slick.

Joanie, had to cancel my class and reschudle it for Tuesday. Hope the streets are better by then. It has been in the 20s here and 18 at night. Love it, just seems so weird what the numbers are. We are used to it always being in the 70s and 80s all year long.

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Exercise done today, worked on my business and had an awesome reading with a new client :D - going on a date tonight with my husband so excited!! Feeling so amazing today!! So I did the burning of my check last night and realize that the pictures showed the reflection in the mirror -- going to post a few -- what I will note is some had blue (thank you AA Michael for helping as always!) and some did not - and the flame did not have the same images in the mirror as they did in the bowl itself, but both had things to learn from -- so was super cool! (although unintentional!)







Ok - fibbed all my favorite pictures all had the blue lol

Joanie - knocking when you are waking is usually someone trying to give you a message, pay attention to the signs around you - I don't feel like its negative by your statement but if you ever wake to a negative feeling its time to smudge your house. You got my name right its Sharyl with an a -- hehee I answer to whatever, I don't get offended when its spelled wrong or said wrong.

Jetta -- yay!! sticky! I want snow! we are getting warmer weather -- BOOOOO bring on the snow!Love your chakra wall hanging - I am going to be working on a new project soon - will show you all when I get it done.

Kathleen - Peppermint is one of my favorites!

Sue - speaking of cleaning your apartment - I just read something today about the chakras being certain places in your house -- and things make sooo much more sense!! Glad your check turned out ok!

Oh, Sue sorry to hear that . But think with the pay cut, your expense of driving, lunch etc will go down a bit too. Enjoy the long weekends. Hope your back heals!

My weekends are always the same. Visit mom, stop to eat, home to laundry on Saturdays. Then chores on Sunday. Now I'll have to fit homework into the equation.

Happy Friday!

Love the snow pics Jetta! I might not like dealing with the snow when driving, but I have always thought it made everything look so beautiful.

Ann sent me a Qigong video for back pain and its feeling much better today! I do not know too much about Qigong but I am definitely going to research it more.

Sunny but cold here, might snow later. Glad its Friday. I have been nervous to see my check (for work). This time of the year it gets quiet for us and my brother (who is my boss) told me that he is closing on Mondays. This had upset me because I was already on a tight budget as it is and it would be around $80 less per check but I can't blame him for doing it. Well his wife who does the payroll and is a tax accountant asked me if I wanted her to change my tax deductions and now its only a $10 difference. So thankful because now I can enjoy my Mondays off.

This weekend I will be cleaning my apartment. What are you guys doing this weekend? Any plans?

Happiness & Health - Sue

Love the macrame Jetta and the snow pics. How was your class?

Long day yesterday, little activity too busy at work to keep moving and going in early doesn't leave me time to exercise in the morning. Hope to get back at it today.

Have a great day everyone!!! Stay positive!!

Good evening. I love the snow pictures, Jetta. But I am so glad I don't have to deal with the snow and the ice. I had plenty of it growing up, both in Chicago and northern New Mexico. Now I am happy if I can see it on the mountains and enjoy it from a distance.

We had a couple heavy rainy days - today, it really came down during the day. My hairdresser had planned to take me to lunch today for the past month or so, but we wanted to go to a place with outside patio seating, and that wasn't feasible. So, we ended up in a nice cafe a few blocks away that we both enjoyed. The rain is over now but they say more is coming next Wednesday and Thursday. But they say the drought is not over yet - but the dams are getting filled up again and there is about 20 feet of snow in Mammoth where most of our water comes from, so I think we are doing okay. And houses are starting to slide down the hills. At least it isn't as bad here as it is up near Sacramento where the rivers are overflowing, thank God..

The rains stopped just as the farmers market was setting up in front of my building. I wanted to pick up some of those big Asian pears and a couple big avocados. But not all the vendors came so there were no avocados. Maybe next week. But the pears were really yummy. All the vegetables in the stands looked so fresh. Too bad I don't like to cook. If I bought them, they would just spoil. So I get just what I know I will use. No one is going to get rich off of my purchases.

the landlady finally got the noise calmed down from the upstairs neighbors. I had a whole day of very quiet walking upstairs and no screeching of furniture being moved. So, all is good.

The peppermint oil and Ylang Ylang oil I ordered came today. I am going to use the peppermint a lot as it is good not only for digestion but for arthritic pains. Works almost as good as the frankincense. Not sure what other oils would help me so I'll hold off a while.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow.

it is already done, I was hoping you would say that!

I am still in Awe over the beautiful snow. Knowing it will be gone any day, makes me not want to sleep or go in at night! I do feel like a little kid, but that is so cool. I was able to do all the readings tonight because I was in that child like feeling of love. I have taken a MILLION pictures of everything, the roof of my house, every branch, every tree, even the sparkly snow. IT is just so BEAUTIFUL!

I love Jetta's snow enthusiasm, too! That's how I was when I first started living in snow. I'm still that way to a great extent. I just love a fresh blanket of snow ... and I love to watch big fat snowflakes fall. Last year we had a blizzard. I got to work from home and I was positively giddy. Our front pane glass window looked like a giant white plush toy was attached to it.

Thanks for thinking of me, Jetta, I'd love a reading.

Sue, I hope you found/have a good Chiropractor. We see one monthly and since we do that, he only charges us 35 a session each. I hope you can or have one that really cares about his job and patients.

Make sure you all burn your checks tonight, I sent the spark mail.

Went walking in the snow today, it is crystal clear outside and so beautiful. I even sat in the back yard admiring it all. I played a lot in it and Joe adjusted our melting snowpeople. Still loving every minute of this weather. I hope you all are keeping warm and safe. LOVE you so MUCH!!

Peaches, Did you want a reading? I added you but don't want to do it if you don't really want it.

Anyone else want a reading? Almost done with everyone else so far!

Hugs, Jetta

Joanie, have no idea about the knocking, I would have to look it up in my dream books, SHERYL??? Help! Did you ever find the dream thread? Maybe you did and I need to go look!

Have a good day everyone!! Going to go for a walk!

So last night I thought I was awakened by loud knocking. It wasn't it was a dream but I couldn't recall anything but the loud knocking. Any thoughts Sharyl?

Back to work, early busy day here today.

Happy Thursday!

Jetta - Your doggy is adorable! I am saving up to go to a chiropractor for my leg/knee issues which I think is from back problems. I made some major changes last year and stopped using credit cards and started paying off my debt so I am still getting use to not charging everything so money has been tight and I unfortunatelydo not have insurance. But I know this is the best thing to do for myself and that it will only get better going forward. Thank you by the way for my reading. It really resonated with me. I have started a new project that I feel very passionate about but the ideas for it overwhelm me at times and then I start to doubt myself. Your reading has reassured me that I am on the right path and made me feel more confident so thank you for that!

Kathleen - so sorry to hear your neighbors are still giving you problems with noise! Prayers that it gets better for you.

Rainy today here in Michigan but its not too cold so can't complain. In fact it feels more like fall than it does winter. But that's Michigan for ya. Lol

My back is still sore but I am not going to let it get me down anymore. My body might be hurting me but I can still control my mind and my thoughts and I choose to think positively. Things will get better and I am wishing everyone a fabulous day!

I had a really bad night here, things are ramping up. I know it's all part of the plan but difficult nonetheless. I was holding this hand posture most of the evening, last night and this morning.

I also posted on the qigong forum



In Spring Forest Qigong Level Two, we teach a simple technique to use for protection: touch your thumb to your index finger, making a circle (similar to the "okay" sign).

Holding this posture keeps your energy from draining when you experience fear.

When you are with an angry person or someone who threatens you, holding this posture will cause the energy channels in your body to close so that no energy can be taken out. Quiet your mind when dealing with these people and put loving light around them. This will help you and it will help them.

Have a great day.

Question: In your classes, you tell us that it is very important to have a foundation of love, kindness, and forgiveness to be a good healer. Why?

Answer: The most powerful form of healing is from love. If someone has no love in their heart, they will not be able to heal effectively. Love, kindness, and forgiveness all work together to increase a person's spiritual energy and healing energy.

Zeus is Boston Terrier / Schnauzer mix



He sure is loving the snow, wasn't sure at first but was hard to get him to come back in



I didn't want to come back in, was out in it all morning. Even made a huge pregnant snowlady! it ws so much fun and is so beautiful. I keep staring at everything knowing it will be melting any minute!

Kathleen, that is not good, sure hope they do something about the noise upstairs soon.

Ann, good to see you and sounds like you are super busy! Love you!

Sue, sorry about your back, can you go to a chiropractor? They REALLY help a lot!

Good morning. We had another lovely rain last night, and another storm coming in tonight, and that should be the end of the rain for a few days. The sun is out and everything is nice and wet. I hope this rainy season continues for a while here in So. Calif. We are just starting to catch up with the normal rainfall and ending the drought.

Another hard night last night. I was getting leg cramps and wanted to go sleep in my chair in the front room like I like to do, but the upstairs neighbors were so noisy at 1:30 that I emailed the landlady to tell them to quiet down. My lease says I am supposed to have peace and quiet if I live here, and that's not happening lately. Plus my legs were bothering me. But I decided to finally try the frankincense oil in a carrier oil and rub it on my painful knees. Lo and behold, the pains went away almost immediately. Wow, I slept like a log in bed until after 8 this morning. How wonderful to find something for pain that actually works. Gotta keep that up. Tomorrow, I should get the peppermint and ylang ylang oils from Amazon. I need the peppermint for my tummy - hope it works as well as the frankincense does for my legs.

Meeting my son for lunch today. I look forward to our lunches. Nice to be able to get out with someone for lunch once in a while.

Our building started a neighborhood watch program. A cop from our local police department came by to get it organized. The organizers thought maybe five would show up, but there were actually about 25 - still a lot of people here that don't want to get involved. But wait until there is an emergency or earthquake and see how they do. South Pasadena is pretty safe, but there are still bad people roaming around causing problems so we have to be alert.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Kathleen from L.A.

Warmer here today with a slight chance of rain. Jetta - you look like you're having a blast in the snow. Not much to say, but wanted to check in. I hope everyone with aches, pains and illnesses gets better quickly. I have my own but try really hard to ignore them most days.

Have a good Wednesday - maybe I'll get to leave on time today!

Hello everyone.

Well the good news is I did not catch that "bug" that everyone around me (and some on here) have been battling with but the bad news - I did something to my back over the weekend. I finally felt a little better and was able to get around somewhat until I had to deal with 2 ft of snow yesterday morning. Walking around it in while trying to unbury your car is not fun when you have a sore back. Also sitting up all day at work is making me uncomfortable and my back keeps spasming. Ughh...I am so frustrated with my body right now.

Happiness & Health - Sue

BElieve in YOUrself

Good morning everyone,

I went from babysitting to having a car break down in family, then my DH had BP readings of 200+/100+. All is better now.

Kathleen - I usually buy Rocky Mountain Oils. All of my Naturopathic Doctor friends recommend this brand as pure and use it in their practices. You can read how each different oil is distilled and the prices are much lower than other "large" companies. Dr. Josh Axe has 18 great videos on You Tube about essential oils. I have read a lot of his stuff on Facebook and sat thru a few videos and his advice is in line with what I was taught when taking my CNHP classes with Trinity and what I have learned from Master Lin and other sources.

Be careful diffusing peppermint oil. I had an adverse reaction to it last year and I have since read it can irritate the nasal cavity and bronchial tubes. I think one drop is equal to 28 cups of tea. Just use caution with all of them.

Some time ago I had written on here about Frankincense oil, Boswellia and Solgar 7. I had been taking Boswellia on and off for a long time but Solgar 7 is an extraordinary blend and has unbelievable anti-inflammatory properties. I found it the day of my car accident by chance - September 5th. I mix Frankincense, Rose, Geranium, (and one other, sorry) with organic shea butter and coconut oil and use it as a facial and body moisturizer. I mix a bunch of oils with coconut oil, citronella is one and use to keep the bugs away. I make what I call liquid smudge with witch hazel, Bach flower essences, Holy Water from Lourdes, water blessed by Tibetan Monks, sage oil, tea tree oil and whatever else I feel I am suppose to add and spray when staying away from home.

Have fun with the oils but just be careful. For instance Spanish sage (Salvia lavandulaefolia) might increase blood pressure in some people with high blood pressure, while common sage (Salvia officinalis) might lower blood pressure and Clary Sage (Salvia Sclarea) will definitely lower BP. Make sure you check any oils before using.

I keep all of my oils in a large wooden box I found at a flea market for a couple of dollars.

I started with a migraine at dinner Monday night. Mine always start with the visual and the pain follows (nice warning). I wasn't sure if I was picking up something at the table and asked everyone if they had a headache. (Still could have been the case because I found out later about DHs BP). When I realized what was coming I took 2 Solgar 7s and went into the living room to do qigong. I did all the exercises in the book for headache (the pain started in back of tongue and went up to head). After about an hour it was gone. Didn't need the harmful NSAIDS most would have taken.

I haven't been as active as I should be, not taking supplements everyday and haven't been doing qigong. It's hard with a 1 and 3 year old and 2 extra adults in the house. Taking the tree down today and moving the exercise bike back into the living room. Hopefully will be able to get back in some sort of routine.

Having people over this weekend to celebrate my son's 35th birthday. We will probably play Cards Against Humanity, Dominoes, etc. and I will be making some self serve foods, hot crab dip, autumn squash soup, chili, veggie tray, fruit salad, etc. Need to have hardy guy food and healthy food.

I am freezing, have a great day everyone.

Morning. Half way to the weekend ! lol

Sharyl, I just brought home the book Zero Sugar Diet (mainly bc of DH lol) and was surprised to see how sugar is in EVERYTHING!!! The only cracker without it is Triscit! Sugar is highly addictive it says. That's why I'm curious on the challenge. Yes, I could use to get off it too but I don't eat nearly what DH does. Keep us updated and good luck!

Jetta love the snow pics. What breed is Zeus? I never thought of AAM regarding the neighbor. I'll keep that in mind. Its warm today so there won't be any issues. There weren't yesterday as Pappy came too bc the roads were to get bad. Irony--with him there they stood on the road. Cold but child didn't have on a hat or her hood up & pigtails. It was just a teeny bit warmer ( I still had to dress warm as the day/week before) than previous day and you don't have a headcovering? I don't get it.This is the same six yr old that just in Nov threw yet another terrible twos temper tantrum in the yard. (Hearing her drew my attention as I thought it was cats fighting outside & looked out). Nevertheless, I'll let you know if I have to call upon AAM. Thanks sweetie!

Interesting factoid- dr told me yesterday that each pound you lose is five pounds pressure off your knees and back. Never knew that. She was please I lost six pounds since my last visit in October.

Hope everyone is having a good week. I'm looking forward to three day weekend. MLK day Monday and we're closed. YIPPEE

Is there a spot on SP where I can track my daily steps? I don't want to track walking, just my daily steps from my polar loop. I can't seem to find anything here in exercise. TYIA EDIT--found it under tab my trackers, other goals. Wish I could get it on login page so I remember.

Namaste...

Joanie, good luck with the neighbor, I would feel the same way too! ask Michael and see if he would move her lol. See what happens. Let us know! I am with you on the exercises, I have so many and need to do them alternating so I don't get too sore.

Sheryl, I added you to the list, and you can always post a reading here, would love that! I started my fast yesterday and am already having a hard time sticking with it. It usually takes me 3 days then I am ok once the sugars are out. What are you doing?

Kathleen, hope you feel better, glad you liked your reading!

It is raining off and on today but stayed around 30/40 so it is snowing now but not staying. LOVING the weather still!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)
