It's been recommended to use the term 'release' or even 'donate'!

I could be simply walking or running in a dream and then I start to float. Then I take off flying. Any thoughts? Fri, 5 Oct 2012 07:22:29 EST My Dream http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9719x50226323 Reading the posts on dreams in this team have made me a little less timid about sharing thoughts on some of mine. I am by no means an expert on dream interpretation, but like everyone, I am an expert on myself. I think dreams are chiefly a mechanism for processing what happens in our waking hours so that our intellect can take charge and put things in categories. But sometimes they convey messages to our waking selves, and when this happens, for me, the dream is very vivid, complex and more r...

I was walking through a discount store that had about a mile of winding shelves filled with beautiful works of art, and the best of any play, movie, or book that had ever been done in all of man/womankind's existence. <BR> <BR> I was picking out so much stuff to buy that I had my arms filled with art, poetry, books, CDs, DVDs, and I was so incredibly happy. It took me a while to find my way back to the front of the store, and I had to ask directions. Howeve...

Like a large fly that's stuck against a window. It comes from my headboard area. <BR> <BR> In the past I haven't thought much about it, but this week it happened again and I automatically thought it was my phone even tho I always have mine on ring.

My wife has been a sparkperson for years and I decided it was finally time to join her. This is my first team. I'll be figuring my way around and hopefully posting on some of these interesting topics. I'm a longtime vegetarian and a recent vegan (1 year). I hope to get back to some of my metaphysical roots and maybe sprout some new branches.

My boyfriend and I went to NH to my family's camp for a summer party. On Saturday we went down to a great gem and mineral shop to pick up some stones for his jewelry making business and I found 2 florite eggs that just called to be purchased (I "had" to buy both)... after we were done we drove to the nearby Wal-Mart so he could pick up a couple things he needed and while I waited in the car with the dogs I put on a quiet CD, took an e...

I returned to spark awhile ago and got really interested in the idea of the spark cookbook and the recipe site. So maybe I am a chef, probably not lol. What is the reality? The reality is that I need to cook at home more as it is healthier and I can avoid sugar, which I am trying to get off of again. Hope it is okay to join in this team. Woot!

I look forward to getting to know some of you as we continue our journeys. <BR> <BR> Thanks for the "welcome mat" goodie too! Wed, 15 Aug 2012 17:08:12 EST Hi http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x9719x49470853 I'm Erica and have been on the Spark path for several years now. I had lapband surgery 4 years ago and am happy with where my body and health are. But over the years I have struggled with my spiritual side. I have been with a couple pagan groups in my area and have been severely burned by both (egos are terrible things) so, with the help of my boyfriend, I have been searching and learning on my own and meeting new and different like-minded individuals.

I love it and could gaze at it all day long. Very alchemical. That's my main interest these days: spiritual alchemy.

I pick a card for the advice for the day, and another for the obstacle. That way I have an idea of what I'm going to face, and am better prepared for it so I keep the advice in mind and know what I can do, other than eat. I know if I'm going to have a rough day,...

Back in Oct 2006 I had a terrible fall and knocked myself into nothingness for quite some time I'm told - I don't remember.

His story was made famous in the movie Patch Adams, where his character was played by Robin Williams.

The patient holds up Patch’s hand and asks how many fingers he sees. <BR> <BR> Arthur; How many do you see? <BR> <BR> Patch; There are four fingers, Arthur. <BR> <BR> Arthur; No, no, no. Loo...

I have recently made some good decisions, body- and health-wise, and have seen some small improvements (so I joined SparkPeople), and I look forward to building on this positive beginning. I also began exploring my path about a year ago and haven't looked back since!

I never know what Spirit is going to teach me when I am drawn to order a book, but this one actually had nothing to do with the body. It was chapter 4, Qualities we come to learn.

I've already had my family weirded out by the interest in metaphysics. I would like to play a bigger part in the metaphysical community and feel that it is my path, yet I am concerned about my colleagues and how that will affect my reputation as a scientist. <BR> <BR> What have your experiences been and how do you handle the negativity of others?

It just so happens that i'm going through a rough time trying to focus my life right now. I've been a big believer in metaphysics since i was a little girl. I've learned to do energy healing (like Rieki) all on my own because i was blessed with the ability to see. This seems like a wonderful team and exactly what i need in my life.

I also believe in past lives. <BR> <BR> I believe we take on a human body in order to learn lessons needed to carry on to the next life. <BR> <BR> For example: There were so many familiaralities for me and my husband, we believe that we were together in a past life and are continuing on in this life. Also, we are choosing to be together in future lives.

Level 2 is usually a mental/emotional cleanse bringing up personal issues that need to be addressed, and level 3 is supposed to be a spiritual cleansing. <BR> <BR> I know that these are not hard and fast rules.

I learned a lot that helped keep me sane at a time in my life when I was suffering from depression and anxiety. Sadly, I've started drifting away from the exercises and practices, but woud love to get back into it all again. <BR> <BR> <BR> Peace and Blessings, <BR> Suzy Thu, 12 Apr 2007 16:13:04 EST the right place? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x9719x5838345 Hi, Well, I think I may be in over my head with you ladies. I'm overwhelmed by the things you've posted and I feel like I can't contribute anything! <em>2</em> I think I didn't really understand what metaphysics actually meant and was looking more into psychic type things. So, anyway, I think I'll drop out of this team. See you around the boards!
