You're very welcome CZAYA. It's always nice to listen to them over again...it can be overwhelming at first but it's been so beneficial to my Inner growth and I've learned so much. I feel a good balance between my body, mind and spirit.

The tools that Eliz has given us is a treasure. If I find anymore I will send them to you.

Have a good night!
Hugs

Hi CZAYAS...glad that you joined us. I've learned so much from Eliz and this team. It's sad that Eliz is no longer with us but her MP3s are here to keep teaching us. I have a list of them that I copied out...They all work except I noticed that the 2nd one on the list didn't work for me.

I also have the Webinars there but I forgot what the EventID was...do you remember Sharon? I had them all saved in my private mail message folders and for some reason, have all disappeared. Now that is very strange cause they were all there before in a special folder.

Anyway, hope that you enjoy these...I have more but they're on my MP3 player. As Sharon said, you will find some on the Gift Sharing Basket as well. Good luck..this is a GREAT journey to be on and I'm looking forward to learning from you as well...hugs Sue

CZAYAS09, ELIZRN is no longer on SP. I don't believe the webinar links work.

You can look her up on facebook or a google search in order to contact her. Elizabeth Bohorquez, RN, C.Ht.

Meanwhile you can check out some of her meditation programs on our GIFT SHARING BASKET thread. I do believe there is also a link to some visuals from one of her webinars there. I want to print those out myself!

Hope this helps and I'm so glad that you are already finding this team to be beneficial to your journey!

Hi ELIZRN,

I just found this team a few days ago, it's already been extremely helpful. There is a lot to sort out on this thread, is it still possible to view the recordings of your webinars??

Thank you sooo much.

Hello everyone...Happy New Year...I'm glad to hear that everyone is back on track...even though some of the tracks have a bit of debris. That's perfectly normal. What's interesting is that we can now see the debris. In the past, even though it was there, we were either unaware or simple case of avoidance. Then there is the business of being "overwhelmed" by all of it.

I'm feeling a bit like that tonight. This usually happens when I'm tired & still want to continue to work or write. I've always been like this. Meditation helps me in these moments. I don't know if you came upon the "fractionation" information I posted the other day. It might be in the BINDER area. I took a clip from my book....Sugar...the Hidden Eating Disorder...& posted it for Sharon...I think it was for Sharon. Fractionation helps me enormously....especially because of my need to keep doing something. In fact, I'm doing it right now.

Come sit next to me. After you read this paragraph please close your eyes gently at the lids. Tilt them up just a bit. Fingers on the lower abdomen. Sensing the breath going up & down. Do a quick body scan...top to bottom & then bottom to top. Place the golden egg around you & enhance it's size....now fill it with a cool, blue hue....that now enters your body cells, filling them with peace & loving feelings. You all know what those feel like...even those of you who have what appear to be huge stressors hanging around. You know who you are. Notice that you are inside the golden egg & everything else is outside. The outside is the world, but inside you are in communication with your Divinity. You are above all that is below. You understand from this position that there are reasons for what is below & they will be shown to you, but not in this moment. This is your time to spend with Divinity. Be still...."

OK...I'm glad to have you with me tonight. It has been a rough few days for me, so lots of fractionation travels have been helpful. When I meet with my Board of Directors in the morning meditation time, I am given suggestions & also some understanding of why the difficulties have been given to me. Light shines on them & through them displaying clarity. It's really quite amazing.

Smiles,
eliz

It's good to see you back here Shirley. I agree with Sue, you are an inspiration, keeping on you Goal-den path even when the going got rough. Despite your "slips" you are still moving forward in a positive direction and you are very self-aware. So, give yourself a pat on the back and know that we are all in it together.

ps. I too have Christmas decorations still up, Monday sounds like a do-able goal!

Good for you Shirley...be proud of your accomplishments during this trying time of the year....the Christmas Holidays. It seems to me that you did very well considering. You are an inspiration for taking the time to go to your Gold-en Path and use the tools that we were given.

Organizing your house...the one you live in and the one that lives in you...wow...I love this! I"m in the process of organizing my house as well..more so on the one that lives inside me...my little villa here in Thailand doesn't need much organizing eventhough this morning we're defrosting the fridge and that's a big job in itself :) Feels good to get that job done!

Hope you have as much fun as I'm having organizing the house that lives inside :)

Peace, Love & Joy

I am so ready to get back to some normalcy if there is such a thing for me. I still have Christmas decorations all around but come Monday, hopefully I will get it all down, packed and back in the attic. In spite of all the confusion, breakdowns, celebration and what nots, I managed to keep a lot of my healthy habits. Not all, but many. I continued to drink my water. Although I ate Christmas cookies than I should have, and had some wine, for the most part I didn’t over eat. I never once felt stuffed. I wasn’t regular in getting to Curves or yoga but I did get there some and always parked my car so I had to walk far and fast to the stores. Usually at this point I am hating myself for getting totally out of control but, while disappointed that I let down my discipline at times, I picked it up and held tight to new healthier habits.
It seemed every time I turned around, some issue and/or stress was staring my in the face. I went to my garden or I just stood and let the blue air flow up through my body and out my fingers. I let the black dust hit the ground and turn golden. While I didn’t become a glutton over the holidays, I certainly wasn’t an angel either. Now it is time to organize my house ( the one I live in and the one that lives in me).
I tip my water glass to all of you and wish you a very happy, healthy New Year. May we all end 2013 healthier physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Live Loved,
Shirley

Good to hear your voice again Grateful! Sounds like you are making great progress on your Goal-den Path... Stick to your guns with your mom, I know it can be hard to disappoint other's especially the ones we love, but you need to come first! I think you are making wise decisions that will help your overall well-being which in turn will rub-off positively on others.

You Go Girl! emoticon emoticon emoticon

ps... I may have some similar downsizing to do too this year.

Hello everyone. I haven't posted in quite a while. I have been lurking here and there. The holiday season was quite busy. Its really difficult to post everyday. Not to mention sometimes I just have nothing to say. Right now I am busy trying to get my kitchen cabinet door sanded, painted an put back up. And building a new side counter next to the oven. I did the demo a year ago but all of my projects just fell to the back burner. I'm getting my house ready to sell and looking for a condo closer to family. This will reduce so many bus transfers and all day transportation night mares just getting to the doctor, lab etc. I've been so miserable living here for a very long time yet the thought never occurred to me to change the situation until October. Its the work I have done here that has made me realize I am worth more. So thank you Eliz for this. I told my mom after Christmas I needed to stay home more. I have spent about most of my time at her house the last year and that too has made me miserable. She did not take it well she started crying and whimpering, "please don't abandon me." I didn't cave. Lots of changes in progress the last couple of months. I finally was able to purchase book of, "Sugar the Hidden Eating Disorder.." I hope to begin reading it tonight. I just wanted to stop in and say hello.

Amen, GOATS03! I too am excited about this New Year and good amount of that excitement comes from sharing and learning with and from our team. I'll bet this is a year of growth for all of us, as you said, individually and collectively. Our resources are abundant, our love and care are genuine, and our spirits are strong and resilient. Blessings to all!

My mom is the one responsible for my grandmother, but right after surgery she cannot take care of her. Before I have been with blind indistries my mom had been working and since she is not my step-dad's mom he had made me the one to take care of her. They believe that in return of the house I am expected to make the 3rd and 1st floor spotless and feed and supervise my grandmother. They had me do all this while I was in college as well. I have also been the main cook in the house. My mom cooked 3 days and I cooked 4. My mom is the power of attorney for my grandmother since she cannot do medical or financial stuff for herself. My step-dad is helping with the bathing and part of the dressing of my mom as well as being right with her on stairs. If something needs to be moved or falls on the ground then my step-dad seems to not think that picking it up or moving it is needed. It takes 2 with the stairs since one needs to be right with her in case she falls and the other needs to have the walker ready and be able to grab the cane. My mom cannot put her socks or shoes on or do any bending or lifting right now. She does walk as much as she can, but after only a few minutes she needs to sit since her leg is swelling up. My grandmother leaves unexpectedly and gets lost as well as will eat what will make her sick. She has stood in the middle of streets that are 4 lanes long and would just stand where she could be hit. She has also brought drunk strangers to the house before. Financially I cannot move out of my mom's house when I am done. It will take years before I am out of debt.

Why do these responsibilities fall to you? Who is truly responsible for the care of your relatives? Certainly not you. I can understand that you may be asked to "help", but not to be totally responsible.

I want to wish you the very best for the New Year. It's time for YOU ....YOUR TIME! Think about it & take the steps that will lead you towards this. I know you can.

Fondly,

Yesterday I was calm until I noticed that my grandmother is back with us. This means that I will be needing to care for 2 people and get my stuff done. Getting things done does not seem to be possible with my school stuff if I need to take care of someone with dementia and depression at the same time as someone else who had just had surgery. I will be doing this until the evening of the second.

Thank you so much for sharing Eliz. I agree, it's not right to live in fear and I won't do that. I will just keep praying to my Angels to keep us safe. It's all in a big plan and what the blue print is, we don't know. So I trust the Universe to guide us.

That was Michael's path and it was meant to be a short one. But no doubt he touched a lot of lives just as you are doing now.

I appreciate that you're sharing what you learned with us and I'm sure that my comment was made for that specific reason without my being conscious of it. There's a reason for everything is always my motto.

Happy Holidays to you and your family Eliz.

I apologize if I brought on any paranoia! We cannot live in fear....but, it does help to know what to do if one needs to confront it. For us, we had no idea about anything. That made matters intolerable. So, I've taken it upon myself to teach what I've learned should the moment present itself....like it did with your comment.

Michael climbed all of his life. He also did some ice climbing. He lived what I would consider a very risky life. I never went to sleep without praying for angels to watch over him. Strangely enough, he died as a result of climbing, but not while climbing. For this I'm grateful....very grateful.

When he arrived in Colombia he went straight to the rocks.....he was so excited to be there. He didn't take time to acclimate to the height of Bogota....it is one of the highest cities in SA. He climbed for two days....& he was a tireless, hard climber. Then he felt ill....so he took the day off & went into Bogota to watch some soccer. He died that night in the hotel from cardiac arrest due to oxygen deprivation brought on by over-exertion.. It was a stupid mistake....but life is like that.

We never know when we will be called back....as my husband says, "back to where?" This, I don't know, but I do know that there is a Hereafter & Angels exist. For some reason Michael was called back. Part of me went with him, but that is not a bad thing. Touching Eternity changes a person.

Enjoy your holiday & live your life fully.

eLiz

Eliz...WOW, Swan Point is a beautiful place..that green house is really something, with all those beautiful flowers. It certainly is a wonderful place for Michael.

I did a lot of research online after your post and it sure can be very complicated and very costly as well. I certainly would never want any of my family to have to go through what you went through. I believe in Angels sent to us when needed and no doubt that Bill was sent to assist you in this difficult time.

Was Michael's death caused from Rock climbing? Our son has been rock climbing for years but he has only went to the US, no other country. It's always a worry but it's what he loves to do. He also Ice climbs in the winter months as well.

I know that I'm being a bit paranoid now though...I don't want my husband to go cycling alone around the island anymore. The traffic is so bad here and I always worry that something will happen to him. I know that I'm not being reasonable.

I'll keep praying to my Angels to keep us safe ;-)

Peace be with you Eliz!

Hugs

I need help getting back on track. I am trying everything that I can think of. I have been doing distractions, breathing, talking to myself, going different ways, and comunicating with others. I have done my small meal, 8 people. The large one will be sometime next month and that is between 25 and 40 people.

Sue... Yes, we are all naive in these matters. My husband & I wanted to go to Colombia, but the Consulate suggested strongly that we NOT do that because it might have made matters worse. Even the FBI got involved & that turned out NOT to be a good thing. One of Michael's climbing partners went to identify him for us, but said it was NOT a good environment. We finally brought him home SIX months later. I am so grateful that we were able to achieve this. I just put away the file of papers....it is huge. All that communication & pain. But, as miracles go, he is with us & we located a wonderful place for his ashes....just short of paradise for him & ten minutes from our new home. It is called Swan Point. When you have a minute look it up on google. Then look for the megalith. Its also a bird sanctuary.... The funeral director we found ( after meeting up with some awful ones ) was like an angel who guided us, as was the man, Bill....who did the cremation & helped us to participate in this. I wrote about him in one of my blogs. It was like he was dropped from heaven to assist. To see him was to love him. In life he looked like a gas station attendant, but I know he was an Angel in disguise.

God bless...

I have been struggling with my eating today for sure. I have not been trying to binge on sweets, but I have been struggling for sure. I am also with the cold and see the dr. in two days.

OMG..WOW...how naive was I. I had no idea of the legalities of dying in another country. Thank you so much for the eye opener and for this information.

The pain and headache that you & your family went through to get Michael home.. OMG..I had no idea.

Again and again...THANK YOU.

Love & Hugs

Sue...

I know this is not a good time for this conversation, but I'm afraid I'll forget to answer to your posting. It's about this business of dying abroad. It can be very complicated depending on the country. Here's some advice I posted to my son's friends who travel to "far away places." First, make certain ALL of your affairs are in order & that you have insurance that covers bringing your remains home. Most countries WILL NOT cremate you in their country. There are all sorts of regulations. If you are traveling with someone, even IF they are related to you, they may not be able to bring you home with them. If you are alone, it makes it can make it even more difficult. Make sure you travel with a Power of Attorney & Medical Directives. They will have to be translated, but not having them can make things more difficult.

When you die abroad you are under the jurisdiction of that country & their laws. Hopefully there will be a Consulate there to intervene, but even so, the country you are in has all the power. For our Michael, things were very complicated. He was alone. The police would not communicate with our Consulate. They did not preserve his remains, so when we finally were able to get him released we had issues with the airlines & the health departments. They would not cremate him in Colombia. They would not return him on a US airline, so they took him on a Colombian airline & then transported his remains by hearse from New York to Rhode Island. Then, we needed special permission from the Department of Health to bring him into this state. The position of the Colombians...They told us that they would bury him there & then in SEVEN years his remains would be removed from his burial place & then they MIGHT agree to cremate him. Of course, this was untenable for us. It took incredible forces to move that government. It included our State Senators & the Embassy of the United States.

Here's the thing....Michael did nothing wrong but die. This is all political having nothing to do with our son. He was there climbing rocks. To this day we still don't have his passport. We were able to get some of his possessions, so we are grateful for that. In addition, they would not release his autopsy results for the six months, of course leaving us in a very painful place.

So...hopefully you or your family will never have to experience anything like this, but do take precautions. My husband & I have traveled all of our married life & we never, ever thought anything about this or the complications that could happen.

I guess there is nothing more to say on this subject.....I'm sure you are saying "oh enough!"

I'm glad you are going to see your MD. This should put your mind to rest. I want to wish you a very happy holiday season & a HEALTHY New Year.

BTW...to the group...

Yesterday would have been my Mother's 103rd birthday. Of course I toasted to her & had an amazing conversation with her in my journal.

I'm a bit busy right now....finishing up projects for work & getting ready for the holidays, but I will be hanging around. I'm on my way over to write a blog...

Smiles & my best to all of you....

I am to the point that I was panicing yesterday and went from only wanting sweets after lunch to not eating anything. I also could not get fluid in me since lunch. I am seeing the dr. in days from now and is still with the cold or whatever this thing is. I need to be at school earlier than normal today. I am to the point that I get frustrated very easily right now.

LOL..yep, right on Eliz..never know with kids eh? But that's ok, we understand and he had talked about moving back...we just thought it would be in the summer...so it's a little earlier.

Thanks Jewels...we have to stay for sure, my sister & hubby are coming for 3 weeks on Jan. 19th. And our friends from our home town arrived last week and they're here for 2 1/2 months. So we will only head back home at the end of April. This will be our last year here since our son will be gone though so we'll enjoy it now while we can.

I'm really glad for you Eliz that your plans are coming along good. I read your last 2 blogs which were fantastic as always.

We haven't made plans per say but both our sons know that we want to be cremated and they can do what they want with our ashes....travel and spread them around. It doesn't matter cause we'll always be with them no matter what. My husband & I talked about if one of us dies while we're traveling and we hope to be able to do the cremation in that country. I only came to realize from your blog that your son had his accident in Columbia..is that right? Is that why you had so much trouble getting his ashes sent home?

Glad that you're staying warm again. Glad you enjoyed those 2 vodkas...good for you.

This morning, Anna (my selfChild) & I walked down the garden path, sat and had a good discussion, setting down ground rules. With Xmas coming and company coming, we definitely needed this time together. We also took some time to water and fertilize our plants that weren't doing so well...we will now see them grow and visit them more often, making sure that they're getting stronger and healthier.

I also realized this morning that I need to do more work, a lot more work on "My image to other people" and why that seems important to me. A few things has crept up lately that is sounding a lot of bells...an old issue I've had for all of my life...why I do things so that other people will think or not think or me...why that seems so important to me but really shouldn't be at all. Yep, work needs to get done in that area for sure.

Wishing everone a great weekend
Hugs

Eliz I love the idea of ensuring your names are engraved with Michael's and the whole resting place actually, it's a lovely concept. Hmm, I also really like that you brought him a tree for Christmas, decorating it with fresh cranberries keeping the birds happy. I look forward to seeing your new plans for this group in the new year...

And Sue, well... you can still holiday in Asia I'm sure you have made many friends you'll want to stay in touch with.

I'm just plugging along, nothing new.

Cheers everyone!

LOL to Sue...

You go to Thailand because your son is in Asia & HE GOES BACK TO CANADA? Sorry, but LOLOL. I'm sitting here freezing...today is the day they are putting in our new front doors & so I'm enjoying how life turns out.

I'm a bit MIA, but things are unfolding well. I've almost finished re-doing my main website. I've learned a lot during this process. My plans are to have all the websites...there are 3....completely re-vamped by the first of the year. That is one gift to myself. I actually have a whole list of "gifts to myself"....all having to do with focusing on particular goals, getting rid of other things & generally cleaning & clearing the way I spend my time. This will give me more time for the things I really enjoy....this group is included in that. We will be able to Skype together & that is FREE. Yes...free is good.

Yesterday we went to the cemetery. I brought a real little tree in a planting pot & decorated it with cranberries that I strung on thread with my trusty little needle. I've never strung berries before, so it was an interesting project. The birds went crazy trying to pull the threads, etc.

Then...my husband & I decided to have our names engraved on the memorial stone where Michael's name is....this area has no separate headstones. It is a scattering garden for ashes.....an absolutely beautiful wooded glen with a huge monolith in the center. Perfect for our son Michael...the rock climber. We decided to join him when the time comes, but I was worried that there wouldn't be room on the stone where his name is engraved & also, since I don't know how long we will live....my OCD said, "What if there is no room on any stone?" Well, that spurred me into action & our names will be placed there....on the special pink granite stone along with Mike & about twenty-five other spirits. To many people this may sound odd, but for us it was something to celebrate. I felt so good signing that check....& then we went out for a special dinner. I confess....two vodka's. No regrets.

OK....my fingers are very cold, so I'll go do something else. Be back soon with more plans for our group!

Hi everyone....
I've been MIA for awhile and missed you all. We had 4 days with no hydro last week which also meant no water. They rotated resuming hydro power on for an hour everyday but it could be at anytime of the day...like one night it was at 5:00 a.m. so we hurried up to be able to take our showers and do what we could while there was water and hydro. The whole island was affected. Then came the day when all our phones, cell phones service was out and so was my 3G iPad service...WOW...talk about being disconnected.

But we played cards by candlelights and had early nights. It was extremely hot to sleep with no AC and at 30 Celsius degrees but we stayed positive and thankful to be on Paradise Island :)

Then our son came to visit us for 4 days...we had a nice quality visit. He announced to us that he was leaving at the beginning of Jan. moving back to Canada. As you all know, we are now in Thailand for the winter because he is in Asia. I got teary eyed & sad but I understood that he needs to bring his business to Canada to grow. And I want him to be happy.

The good news is that he is coming with his fiancee (which we adore) to spend 10 days with us for Xmas. The sad part is going to be when he leaves but we'll get over this and spend the rest of our winter here regardless...I'm sure that next year will be different with a new adventure but we won't worry about that yet.

Now, needless to say that I haven't had the time to be active with the team here but I'm finally catching up. I've read your blogs Eliz and of course, they are always so enlightening and so enjoyable to read. Good luck on the BIG CHANGES that you're working on, you are such an inspiration!

Wishing everyone a great Wednesday!

Hugs

Today I have skipped breakfast. I am not sure if it is strickly the fact that I am coughing, and my stomach is not quite right. My mom is in more pain with her hip surgery that she had yesterday the pain that she had with her back surgery.

Hey Gang... I'm here, but not here. I've taken my own advice & find myself focusing on cleaning up the clutter of my work. Since moving & going through my son's passing I put most of my work on a back-burner. As I started to review everything I found myself "shocked" to say the least. What a mess! At first, like with any shock, I went into hiding & then denial. My husband helped by suggesting that I simply stop & retire from all of it. LOLOL....not me.

So, I've set about organizing all the changes. As you know I did publish the eight eBooks, but haven't marketed them. I keep chasing myself ....looking for time. Of course, we all have the same amount of time. Another realization....truth telling time.

I started meditating on my "situation" as I now call it & lo & behold, the help came forth. Goodness, I must have some very good "angel friends" looking out for me. They gave me some great ideas & I took off with them.

I had to make some BIG CHANGES, some of which involve the work I've posted here. But don't worry. All is good. I decided to scrap the webinars. Too expensive & time consuming for me, so those links won't work any longer. The mp3 links WILL WORK. But, I'm replacing the webinars with what I'm calling "3 minute hypnosis sessions." While I'll be marketing them, I will provide them to my team.... for any spies around...there is NO ADVERTISING OF ANY KIND, so please leave my team to have these mini-programs. They follow the work I have posted here for years. If, for some reason, you ( spies ) have an issue with this, please tell me BEFORE I post the links. That won't be for a week or so.

Yesterday I started uploading all of my programs for immediate download....& I'm building a series of mini-websites to house them. This was all presented to me by my "angels." It is a very organized system & while I won't be discussing it here, just wanted to tell you what I'm busy doing. I'm also putting together the outlines for the next eBooks.

This is my Christmas gift to myself.......cleaning up my mess so I can enjoy what I do. I'm tired of feeling over-whelmed with my work. This came through in my meditation & journaling. I want to enjoy what I do, not feel like I'm living under a pile of unfinished business. This is reminiscent of my eating disorder & I know how wonderful it felt & still feels to be out of that.

Anyway, I'll write more tomorrow. And...there is so much to read here. Keep posting. You are all a joy to me. Smiles, elizRN

Sue, I'm flattered that you read my posts. Mostly I write them for myself as putting my thoughts into words brings clarity as I try to organize what seems an unorderly mash of ideas, wishes, needs, each dancing to their own rhythm in my mind. Many lessons have I learned once I am able to make sense of what's in my head!

Writing a book? Nah. Well actually, now that you mentioned it, I had once considered writing children's books. I believe there are so many loving messages that can plant seeds of life long value in the pure imagination of a child.

And, years ago while working through the "dissolution" of my first marriage, I took a creative writing class. Once again, this was my way of using writing to understand how love can "end" or how I could "let it go." I did a lot of writing then and part of it was through the annulment process. Like you, I am Catholic. I have to say that process was healing.

Now 26 years later I have two lingering memories of my divorce.

First is being in the courtroom in front of a "referee." Really? Was this some sort of sporting event? She said to me, "Mrs. XXXXX, do you wish for your marriage to be dissolved?" I surely must have gasped, for I did not expect these words, and the end of my marriage was the last thing I desired, envisioned, or wished. I remember choosing my response carefully and worrying at the same time that not providing a simple yes or no would stall moving on to a much wanted place of less pain.

I answered, "I do not wish my marriage be dissolved. I am agreeing to it." Without a moment's hesitation, the referee continued on with her "process." I don't know what else she said. Her words were no longer of value to me. Deep inside I thought to myself, is she so heartless or just stupid that she did not understand the implication of what I just said. At the same time I silently pleaded with my now ex husband to understand and register forever in his gut that I felt I had no choice, that he was killing our marriage vows, our plans, our dreams, our future, and me.

The second memory is the void, the numbness I felt leaving that courtroom. There was some anger, how could someone who knew neither me, my now ex husband, nor our marriage, decree it dissolved? But mostly I felt lost, empty, nothing. My mom had driven me to the courthouse and I asked her to drop me off at work. It was the only place where I knew what was expected of me and that I had a purpose...

OK, so now I have shared an example of how I use my writing. Not at all what I planned... I was going to write about meditation and my experience with Eliz's Crystal Spa this morning. Instead I feel trickles of tears still making their way down my cheeks and that funny sensation of others drying on my skin. My nose is stuffy and my chest feels a bit heavy. But my shoulders feel relaxed, my head is clearing, and peace is returning. I am grateful for this reminder that my healing is not finished and this opportunity to continue that work for a few moments.

I am also pleased that still IMHO marriage is a sacred lifelong commitment and blessing. Just last month, my second husband and I celebrated our twenty fourth anniversary. He is my soulmate, the one who understands and accepts that each of my healing episodes such as this somehow multiply my limitless capacity to love him fully.

In gratitude and love...

OH..how I love to read your posts SJ. You have such a wonderful way of writing and describing...I actually feel like I'm right there with you. Any spare time? Have you thought of writing a book?

I love meditating...I get inner peace, joy and so much fulfillment from it. I start my day with it and it seems to always keep me positive and grateful. This morning I didn't do the normal meditating where I just stand, ground myself with the energy of the earth, and maybe do Color Breathing of my Chakras with my eyes closed...I finish with some form of prayers where I'm just thankful, prayers for special people alive & my family/friends who has crossed over as well as sending love & positiveness through my energy. BUT, this morning my meditation consisted of walking to the 7Eleven store for a bread..I took that time to be grateful and send out my prayers. So I think that meditation can be how and what you want it to be, what makes you feel good inside.

Good luck on your project of painting your home. I love how you threw in that very wise comment about deleting the word "only" I have now learned from that comment. I will always keep that in my mind..thank you!

Hugs

Oh dear ladies! It has been a while since I have spent time with you, so today just now I took the time to read through this discussion string... My the wisdom, encouragement, and love you all bring to the table for all to share and learn from.

I've had several days of post holiday return to old habits. Why? I ask myself and I'm not convinced yet of my answer. Right now I'm going with "let down." You know when you spend a lot of time and energy planning an event and then when it's over you feel somehow lost? You know that let down after the big event? It kind of reminds me of the times I caught a cold or virus after a wonderful vacation. Or how I miss the characters after finishing a novel that caught my inner attention for several days. And the void after an adrenaline rush?

The spark that just came to me was that when I weighed myself Friday morning after Thanksgiving, I needed to celebrate. Why didn't I, I wonder. The scale didn't move from Thursday to Friday and I was pleased, truly pleased. But I didn't celebrate. You know what? I expected to be successful on this holiday, but I didn't plan to celebrate that success. I went into let down mode...

The next holiday gathering (and there will be several opportunities to practice this between now and mid January), I will have rewards/celebrations planned. No more let down... Yes to let be, let go, let's celebrate!

Looking forward to the next year, you have inspired me in the recent posts to begin meditation, possibly active meditation. The concept is new to me, and I am interested in how it seems to tie to the practice of mindfulness. I also want to try the morning "scene writing" of my life. Maybe evening will actually work better for me. In any case, I foresee that there is great power in envisioning and more scripting what I want my day to be from a positive perspective.

For two years now I have been "retired" but not embracing that term in the sense that I may never have to seek employment outside my home ever again. Right now it is a gift I am able to enjoy but it may have an expiration tag attached. In any case, I had planned to paint our home with my new found time and energy. Here I admit that one room is done (my healthier self deleted the word "only'). Can painting be an active meditation and can I begin the day with a painting scene? Can I write my story with scenes of my home being blessed with new color, freshness, new vitality? Why not, I say. Why not indeed.

What if I don't wait until the New Year...

But for this moment, I am leaving to make some late lunch for my husband and I and then I am going outside to enjoy some fresh and surprisingly warm December air outside. And I celebrate the opportunity and ability to do this!

Thanks all! Love to you!

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Tomorrow we're going to put our Xmas decorations up. I will play Xmas carols and probably indulge in a glass of wine while we decorate our little tree. This is always a very special time for me. I LOVE Xmas, I love the decorations and I never get tired of listening to Xmas carols. I'm so excited :) It's always been a tradition to buy a Pointsettia at Xmas time. Last year being in Thailand, I never thought that I would find that here but I had the most beautiful Pointsettia that lasted till we left in April. So, I will be on a mission to find a Pointsettia again this year :)

I have needed help getting me to eat. My IL instructor is going to help me as well. She thinks that the eating issue is that I am not maintaining the right amount and maybe even what I am eating. She is going to help me find something that can help me with calcium and to not be under or over eating. She said that it could be that my sugar level isn't quite right. The way I could drink water today was by adding brown sugar to it. My roomate noticed that I was dehydrating.

Liz - What a wonderful reminder. I've always believed that you make your own reality. Now I will remember to think positively and picture how I want myself to be. Concentrate only on the positive. Great boost to start my day. Thank you.

Hi Eliz, I really like your message to Onicam about writing/telling positive stories. This is something I "was" having a little trouble with, so thank you. I'm off to re-write my next chapter in a good light.

And Sue, I'm happy that you are settling in so well. It is exciting to hear about your adventures and challenges, you are doing so well!

Hi Jewels...yes, everything is falling into place in my new surroundings :) I just always expect too much TOO fast.

You're so right Jewels...I really appreciate being here with so little of the commodities. I don't miss my stove, my microwave, my car or anything else for that mater. I appreciate doing so great with so little. Last year when we left, I thought that I would do without those at home too but it just doesn't work that way..I just got back to the same routine of using the microwave, using the car etc...But for the present, I'm thankful, grateful and happy...I couldn't ask for anything more.

Today we are in our 3rd day of steady rain, no sun, no going out. Now that could be a bit trying on my positiveness but you know what? I'm not letting it get me down. I was still able to admire Mother Nature this morning, taking in deep breaths of the nice pure air :) I use my day again to relax, to read my books and maybe today I will get in some strength training with my rubber bands. I know that someday the sun will come back out :)

I haven't really shopped for pottery yet but I know that they do some beautiful work here.

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement :)

Happy Monday to everybody!
Hugs

Onicam...Well, you are certainly going through many things right now. None of these are within your control. People we love get sick & sometimes they die. This is the way of life. I was telling a friend of mine that if she walked down the street & knocked on each door, she would find that every person was dealing with something....illness, death, life complications, on & on. No one gets away free....& sometimes it seems like it all comes at the same time. I know it was this way for me over the past two years. I was writing this to someone today when he told me, "I hope something positive comes out of all of this for you." That was a lovely thing for him to say...

Here's what I had to do & still do. Each day I get up & face the day. I meditate & spend a few minutes in gratitude. I then journal & plan out the life I want to experience. Each day I write "another scene" of my life to be. Not only do I write this, but I tell myself these stories throughout my day. I just got finished telling one of my "stories" to my husband. I told him exactly how something will be for me....it is not that way now. In fact, the issues surrounding this particular situation is a HUGE MESS, but I didn't talk about the mess. I talked about how it was going to be. I also talked about HOW I AM GETTING SO MUCH BETTER DESPITE ALL THE VERY DIFFICULT THINGS I'VE HAD TO FACE. I don't talk about the things that are depressing, BUT INSTEAD about how much better I am getting & how strong I am becoming, etc. You get the idea.... this is how you move through difficult & trying times & when you do this......you will come out of the dark woods & into the LIGHT. You will be amazed at what you are capable of achieving. Just put one foot before the other.........& tell yourself "the stories."

Here's something I remembered that I forgot...

This is how you become a stronger person. It's like lifting weights. You get better & better with practice. Life MAKES YOU PRACTICE. Forget "not liking it." There is no choice. You get to do what you are given to do. The experience WILL TEACH YOU no matter how well you do it. Do it at a "lower level of performance" & get to see the results or outcomes. Do it at a "higher level of performance"...get to see the results or outcomes. So, everything is a teaching experience. Again...there is NO OTHER CHOICE. THIS IS LIFE.

Some things that have got me like this are my mom's kidney is going, my mom is getting hip surgery and will eventually need surgery in the other hip, my dog is near death, my grandmother's memory is getting worse and cannot be alone so she is going to different placeses this week. My mom may need to go to the nursing home for recovery, it is around the time that I was told from my grandfather in 2002 that he is not going to making.

Onicam...

Well, since you know what is screwing you up, you can re-work a plan for these areas. This is very good news. Many people aren't awake for what their problem really is & you are. We all screw up. In fact, right now I'm working in several of my "screwed up" areas. A few are food related, but there are others that need or would benefit from correction. A good amount of my work is "screwed up" right now & I'm a bit overwhelmed, BUT this is one of my ongoing issues with ME, MYSELF & i. I'll write a blog about this....maybe a bit later this evening....or tomorrow. I'm running behind right now....as per usual.

Start by writing these down in a journal. I hope you have a journal for this work. It's important to your inner mind to have a special place for your self-development.

I'm impressed you are working with the blind industries. You can develop into a powerful teacher. Don't worry that you have things to correct....we all do! Enjoy the correcting...!!

I am losing control with my eating for sure. I am depressed again. I barely have been able to sip soda and nothing else. I did not eat anything except candies and grapes. I had 5 grapes this evening and it took until almost 2 before I could even put the candies in me.

Sue, good on you with learning chess! Something I've never really learnt myself, but perhaps I'll give it a better go again... And of course great news with your meditation program! It sounds like you are making positive progress by adapting to your current living situation. You know the fact that you have to boil water to do dishes could be another "element" for you meditation. It sounds so "zen" like, you could really make the dishwashing "ceremony" a lovely practice. By the way, have you found any lovely pottery dishes from the locals? Sue, sometimes less is more because it causes you to slow down and be present and really enjoy your beautiful environment. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the great work!

I lost control with my dinner big time and did have diet soda with my lunch. I am trying to stay on track with things and it is not working well. I need help getting back on track and staying that way. I have tried everything that I can think of, but I know that there could be other areas to try.
I do not work at all, but I am going to school 43 hours a week. 40 of them are with Blind Industries.
There are a number of things that is causing me to screaw up with my eating. I do good for a couple days and then I big time get worse.

Hi Eliz

Thanks for the suggestion of "awake meditation" I never looked at it this way. I love doing the dishes because it always gives me a peaceful time and something that I was never able to explain to people who thought that I was very weird when I say "I love doing dishes" even when I had a dishwasher I never used it unless I had a lot of company visiting. And I love doing dishes alone.

Thanks Jewels...I got up this morning feeling very positive and enthusiastic. I was able to get in some meditation inside my bungalow and then spent an hour or more on working with my notes on Color Breathing Meditation & Affirmations. I got them all written out and ready to put in practice. Next I'm going to spend each day some time on Eliz's mp3s and journal on them.

I've talked to my husband about the need to have at least an hour in the morning with my inner self quietly. He fully understands and always supports me.

And now...I"m going to do my dishes, by myself (my husband is always happy when I don't ask for his help cause that's one thing he hates doing) Off I go for my "awake meditation" :-)

Hi Shirley:
Nice to hear from you. It's very understandable that you don't find the time to post often with your busy schedule. I hope that you're not wearing yourself too thin though and that you have a healthy balance. Take care of yourself my friend. Hugs.

Hi Monica:
I read your spark page and I see that you have an AA in Special Education and a BS in Information Systems. I'm curious to know if you have a career in those fields? Do you work full time? Those are great accomplishments.

Do you still play chess online? My son has recently taught me to play chess but that is such a hard game to learn...so much thinking and so much strategy involved. But I'm learning :) I saw your picture with the outside chess game..WOW...that's awesome. Do you play often? That's quite unique...you must get a lot of comments on those.

Well...my dish water is getting cold...here in Thailand we don't have running hot water except for a shower so I have to boil my water and that is why it's getting cold...so ...he ho away I go.

Wishing you all a great week!
Hugs

Gram & all...

Yes, time is always an issue. Right now I'm working on some organization for things I want to accomplish in the New Year. This is something I'm giving myself for Christmas. I discussed it with my husband at lunch today because he is going to be affected by my choices. Time slips through my fingers & since most of the things I want to accomplish either have many parts OR need a built-in discipline, I need to organize & commit to them.

There is a particular part of me that has to commit. I know that part well. For me, it simply isn't enough to say I'll do this or that. I tend to drift....when I worked in my regular office this was not a problem, but now that I work from my office at home & my work is so varied, I am easily distracted. So....I decided to organize this & use a method I devised many years ago for my patients. It worked well for them, so it will work for me as well.

Certain parts are easier than others. I actually find it necessary to be very detailed. What's interesting is that once I've entered the commitment to it's place & there is a "check" installed, then I have no problem. I find that I need to add some very old habits that have resurfaced....picking my cuticles is the biggest one. This is a very ingrained habit that goes back to early childhood. For some reason it has come back & with a vengeance. I've tried several things, but I still find myself doing this at particular times of day. So...it goes into the new self-discipline commitment plan. Some other things include foods I've not been eating as I should be, eliminating some cheater foods, taking my calcium twice a day...OH OH...here's one that might make you laugh...ENJOYING my exercise. I do my treadmill, etc., but my mood isn't where I want it to be.

I have a chaotic writing schedule & that needs to be fixed. I also have issues with my computer & playing with certain things...not games or anything like that, but researching the multitude of things that interest me. I could spend hours doing that. This area of my life needs discipline. Also, there are certain things I want to do such as re-listen to a time management series I've had for decades....it's on cassettes! It is so good & I got so much out of it when I did the course & I want to do it again. Of course, all of this takes planning & focused action plans.

So Gram...you are not alone. Don't forget to take time to just "BE." We all have this habit of always being busy. I also need a discipline for THAT!

Hi Gram I have been wondering where you are and I am happy to know that you are at least reading the posts when you can. Thank you for the prayers sending some your way too, I certainly wish you to find more peace in your life.

Sue, you can do it! I really love Eliz's suggestions for you, yes make your time there a "wakeful" meditation. Although I do relate to you about being in public, for me to really relax I need to know I won't be disturbed, perhaps you can find some private time in you flat to meditate. Anyways, keep up with the great work, you've inspired me too!

Onicam, good for you! I think your scale is going down too so keep up the good work!

I am hoping that it works the full time and that I can get off of this and not fall back to sweets, but for 2 days I have been using sugar gum, with sugar as the first day in place of candies and it is working. I am with a cold and still need to figure out how to put exersise in for sure.

Overwhelmed! That’s me. I haven’t been responding on SP but have been dropping by this team to read from time to time. There are so many threads and I just don’t know which one is the best for me. I just don’t have time for so many. Eliz, I try to read your blogs here and there but don’t have time to reply. I have been doing the webinar workshops and listening to the mp3’s. I read my Bible, meditate and pray first thing in the morning. With exercising 3-4 times a week and two bible studies (one I just participate and another I lead), preparing meals and doing household chores leaves me with little time these days. The old cliché “I don’t know how I ever had time to work” really fits me. I don’t watch much TV (a little news and Dr. Oz occasionally). I don’t spend a lot of time on the computer like many. The computer is another issue as mine is acting up and my son has been here working on it a lot lately (there goes the time). My husband and I have been looking for new recliners which is using up my time. Now there is another frustration, shopping with Mr. Perfectionism. After all the hours spent looking, he gets cantankerous and decides to just forget it. {where is my sugar, I need sugar! No, I need to go to my garden and listen to my water fountain}

Having said all this, my diligence in eating healthy comes and goes with the busyness. I long for a quieter life.

I would so like to be more involved with you lovely ladies and respond to your issues and wisdom but right now it just isn’t working. Know that I am reading and thinking about you and praying for you. emoticon

Sue...

Changing environments can give you the opportunity to change the way you meditate. Remember, life can be lived as a meditation. Each activity can be accomplished in a meditative way. Of course, so can each moment. I find it interesting to actively "be" with activities such as doing the dishes, walking, shopping, driving, cleaning, even chatting with my husband, son or grandchildren. You are in a perfect place for experiencing "awake meditation." I would love it if you would explore some of these suggestions & then write here about them.

Now that I've shared this with you, I'm going downstairs to meditate, but in a different place.

Enjoy your day & may each experience bring you closer to your Divine Self.

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!

We arrived to our rented villa in Thailand exactly a week today. Even though we settled in quite well during this week, I still feel like I want to do everything all at once. I'm having a hard time to quiet my mind...rushing.... what to do next, what to buy, where to go... I need to say "WOH" Time out! As my neighbor from England keeps telling me "Chill Out"

I'm feeling a little bit sad today that I haven't started my meditation or my journals. I miss my quiet morning rituals as I called them back home. I think this is a journal to "myself". I need to find a morning place, maybe a walk along the beach or somewhere where I can find that inside peace and joy again. Don't get me wrong...I'm very happy and thankful to be here. But meditation is a part of me, a part that I need. Maybe the question is Why haven't I started? I tried but I can't find any quiet place, I worry about somebody passing by and seeing me in that trance with my eyes closed...is this stupid or what? I can't concentrate, My notes are home but why can't I start new ones? Yes, I can and I will.

Actually I'm going to start with one of Eliz's blog's where she included questions and asked for answers. That might be a good beginning to get back into my journaling and get me started. I need to make a plan. Ok...deep breath Sue! You know that you will find a way, you always do...your Guides are with you!

1. First plan....no computer until I work with my meditation, my books & my journals. Once I open my laptop and my emails I'm gone for at least part if not the whole morning. That's where I need to make some specific rules again.

2. The rest will fall into place :)

Ok...I'm feeling a lift now...

Well, that felt good...hope that I didn't bore you all with my babbling. I'm leaving you all with this nice quote.

"A positive thinker does not refuse to recognize the negative, he refuses to dwell on it. Positive thinking is a form of thought which habitually looks for the best results from the worst conditions."

Onicam...I just finished writing this on your blog, but I'll write it again here because there may be other people who need this bit of advice.

Sugar plays a BIG PART in anxiety & panic issues. Remember..the mind & body connection. ...only you can change this....no one else. You have to decide to practice self-discipline. As for confidence, this is not something anyone can give you. It is not a "one time thing." You become confident by practice....over & over....fall down....get up...fall down...get up.

I hope you read my blog today...especially the last part. I was actually thinking of you when I wrote that part. It is time for you to come to terms with your truth. There is simply no other way. Of course, you have the choice to stay in your problems for as long as you like. It's all up to you....getting OUT or staying IN. I know this is blunt, but this is the truth.

I've said this to you before...You need to write out a few rules for yourself & follow them...you need to PARENT yourself. One new rule each day...that's how I got out of my multitude of issues & you can do this if you want to. If not, if you want to stay in excuses & non-movement, then that is your choice. Only you can do this & you get to choose. It doesn't do any good to just wander around aimlessly, talking or writing about your food issues. In fact, it is harmful BECAUSE you are hammering it into your mind that you are incapable & a failure. Remember, think it & you will get it.

I know you don't want to be incapable & to fail, so therefore....you need to consider stopping the same rhetoric. Also, come to understand that there is some reason why you want to keep doing this. Please think about it. You are a smart woman, so do think about this seriously. It will take a strong desire on your part to stop talking in this way. Maybe you need a rubber band on your wrist to snap when you do this. It's a bad habit for you....probably worse than the sugar because it connects to other beliefs you have & are now forming. I tell you this because I care about it. I see a woman with an extraordinary opportunity to do something great for herself & others.....& instead, you stand around saying the same old stuff. Snap....snap.

BTW, Happy Thanksgiving.

I need a lot of help with getting through the eating, but I know that part of it are triggers, part fears, part is the fact that if I am full then I am not aware of it, and part is that my confidince is very low. I am not sure what will help me with the confidince.

My eating is big time out of control right now. I am eating sweets and going for soda as well. I am also trying to get through all of the projects and is getting big time stressed for sure. I am back up with sweets and soda even though I had flavored water and apple juice, but maybe it is the first time with the apple juice.

Oh Sue you are living a dream come true, how wonderful! Enjoy! Now I am wondering if these are the times where you get off your healthy eating plan and re-gain weight? I know your intention is focused on health so you will do well. I just want to give you a friendly challenge to push yourself have fun with cooking up tasty meals in a limited manner eg. stir-fry's comes to mind and even daily shopping for fresh food. Ooooh what fun! Yes, thank you I LOVE my dishes too! So, for you, I challenge you to find yourself some extra-lovely dishes that you will love to touch and look at... perhaps something handmade from a local village?

SJKRACH, yes, thank you, again I do LOVE using my own dishes... I totally agree with you, bring out those lovely dishes, so many of us save things for special days, when we can cherish "everyday" as a special day! And I'd like to challenge you too, oh heck, the whole team, to go out and find some very special, lovely dishes, handmade is best and use them! I have both, glass and stoneware, so wonderful!

Cheers everyone! emoticon

Jewels, how wonderful to have vessels that you have created to present your food! I don't think I have any that I have created, but I do have some pieces with our family history even back to that of my great grandmother. I think between you and Eliz's Girls Club blog I am going to unpack some of these items that I hold dear and put them to use. And today, I will bring out my Christmas dishes. Some years I haven't even used them. But this year is different. I am different thanks to a miracle called SparkPeople : )

OMNICAM, your heartfelt posts of your struggles have also encouraged me to consider how many times I have mindlessly eaten. Really, how can I binge if I am mindful of the blessings of the food, the nutrition, the fuel, whatever one may call it, that I put into my precious body? Goodness, there are so many reasons why I should treat my food and my body with respect, awe, and dignity. There is no dignity in bingeing. This realization is important to me. Spark on, OMNICAM. May your ability to inspire others do the same for you and fuel your confidence and progress.

Sue, your time in Malaysia sounds like a great adventure and time to learn and experience new things. I find quite a contrast in the simplicity you have described vs the richness of being in what I would consider to be an exotic location. I look forward to reading your posts as I'm sure they will be as interesting and inspiring as those you have posted just within the short time since I joined this SparkTeam.

Eliz, I need to "work" your workshop. For me, I believe this will take time and focus. I want to explore, learn, practice, grow, and improve. Ultimately I want a healthier balanced life as it seems we all do. I realize this is life journey, not a destination. So as I read in one of your blogs, I have already begun!

In gratitude...

Just flew in to the island of Koh Samui, Thailand late yesterday. We're trying to get organized. We rented a 2 bedroom villa for the winter, same as last year. We were quite busy today, grocery shopping and of course activating my iPad was first on the list :) More to do tomorrow before we can start relaxing.

Trying to catch up to the posts. Thanks SJ for those wonderful tips.

Wow...you are so talented Jewels. Wish I had your dishes :) This villa comes equipped with very little...so we make do with what we have...no oven, no microwave, small fridge, no toaster, no stove, just a one burner hot plate, no vehicle (walk everywhere) so it's really nice to experience and be thankful for what we have.

Wishing everyone a great week!

Hugs
