Today I was reminded to be selective and protective of certain things. I'm currently working on getting rid of a slight headache! I did manage to reflect on a few lessons learned during 2015 and share them in a video blog. https://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j

Good Friday everyone. Today is going to be a good day, got my meditation done weights and stretching done, all my Christmas shopping got done yesterday, and today spending time with some friends. Even though I deal with Lupus I enjoy everyday whether good or bad I am always grateful. Reiki Spirit and meditation keep me grounded. I send love and light for all of you.. have a fantastic weekend.

One of the sites where the surgery was performed started oozing last night, and was a gentle reminder to slow down a bit. So today going to do some journal work, and Holiday card crafting.

I still need to get some fresh air today so I just might sit outside in the side yard and just meditate later.

I am Zoe's sister. I just wanted to let you all know she will not be back on. I will not talk about the details, it hurts too much.

I do not know what will become of the team as the family has already closed down both of her pages, and I am not in contact with them, as I am sure she explained.

Blessings.

I am sorry that I have been a sucky leader at best lately, but I am having some issues and am doing my best to work through them. I got my heart broken in addition to my physical injuries. My doctors are dinking around with the multitude of meds that I am, so that basically, I am a zombie, except for a small part of the day, when I am either depressed or manic. as you can see I have gained back all but 11lbs of my weight. so, I am starting over, less of who I think I need to be in order to get along with my family and more of who I need to be in order to get along with me.

It is my fervent prayer, and I hope you will all pray with me, that I will be back on and doing my program, leading my groups, etc. on Monday the 22nd. I stopped one of the meds, that seemed to be causing the problem, and I have a doc's appt on Monday, so, he and I will have it out, then I will be back. I am sorry to have left you hanging like this. I apologize.

Please, continue with the Tao meditation and the Focus, and I will be working on some chakra exercises for you to try when I am really back on. Read over my new spark page, send me energy, I can really use it, and know that I am thinking of each one of you, wishing you the best and sending you love.

joy and laughter,
Zo

I have been through a lot spiritually while trying to overcome my injuries. I changed my sparkname and page as well as my approach. I will be closing the zoe page. I am heading in a new direction.

I am still healing. I strained my ankle when I missed a step and I kept exercising on it and well, now it is well and truly screwed up. I might be looking at surgery for it. If I am on it for very long my toes go numb and my ankle give out. Part of what I needed to work on spiritually.

I am still trying to get the perforated sinus under control. It is taking its sweet time healing. No strenuous exercise until it is. which I do not understand, but because they added the words "life-threatening" I guess I will listen. I am still going to exercise some, I have gained an appalling amount of weight.

Welcome to all of the new members I am so glad you are here and I hope you have been looking through the pages and getting acquainted with everyone and everything. If you have questions please spark me, I don't bite and I love to research what I do not know.

To the rest of you, DO THE FOCUS OR YOUR EARS MIGHT FALL OFF!!! lol!! Please?(pouting cutely)

luv ya guys,
Z

Hi Zoe, you "jacked" your ankle? Is it a sprain? Oral surgery is such a pain - what are they doing perforating your sinus cavity? Mano - time for a new dentist? I guess that's why they're so scary to most of us - the damage they can do - or the healing they can accomplish, depending on how good they are.

Talk to you tomorrow, rest well and heal.

Hi!

I am back! I jacked up my ankle! I had to have oral surgery and I was on vacation! They perforated my sinus cavity and let's just say I am a mess.

However, tomorrow, I will be back on duty.

I hope you are all okay. That you have been taking care of yourselves, and each other. I have thought of you often and missed you a lot. I will tell you about my vacation tomorrow!

I love you all, blessings!

hugs,

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all having a great day. One of my next goals for SP is getting to know the people on my teams better and make more personal posts. I have 8 teams, and I feel like I am always just stopping by. Just know that I am trying to figure it out. I want to be as supportive to you as you are to me.

I got my 1st compliment/someone noticing my weight loss today. A woman in the mommy and me gym class asked me if I was losing weight, cause she could really tell. It was nice to hear, but I hate the conversation after...what are you doing, how are you doing it, what do you eat, do you exercise etc. while at the same time they are telling me why they "can't" do it. It's just that I have been on this journey so long, I have heard it 100 times.

So anyway, I need motivation for exercise...any suggestions?

Hoping to go on a ride today - see some folks.

Hi everyone -

I had a rough day today. Just one of those days when I never felt right and it felt like the world was against me. I know it was because I am so tired, so I am not too worried about it. I just feel like there is not enough hours in the day and instead of catching up, I feel like I fall behind even more. But even though it may not sound like it, I am trying to stay positive. Just keep trudging along. I hope you are all having a great day. Remember to be grateful for the little things!

Hi All -

Sorry I have been so scattered the past few days. I am starting to feel the ground under me again, which is a good thing. I am not where I want to be yet, but I am close, and that helps keep me calm. I hate that overwhelmed feeling. Instead of motivating me, it usually makes me "freeze up" and the situation gets worse. I am on the right path though, and I just have to keep going. Thank you for all the support.

Oh...and by the way, I lost 2.5# this week emoticon Yay!

Thank you for the support. Feeling a little better today. I can not function when I feel that things around me are chaotic, and that's how I feel right now. I need to catch up and get things back in order and I will be feeling better I hope. I plan on being back on solid ground by the end of the weekend. So much to do, so little time, and it never ends.

Today has been a Murphy's Law kind of day. I just want to curl up in a ball and cry. I have just felt so stressed lately. I need a break soon, but I don't know how that's going to happen.

I am just getting ready to eat dinner and its almost 11 PM. Not good. I just hope that when I wake up tomorrow, everything goes a lot smoother and I get a chance to catch my breath.

Night all :)

I forgot to post yesterday that I lost another 2 pounds for a total of 13 pounds in 4 weeks! I am happy with that...now I just have to keep it up!

I am refusing to post a negative entry today. I feel like I have been a downer lately. It is a GORGEOUS day out here in NJ, I am going to spend time with my family today, and I have so many things to be grateful for!

Enjoy your day today, whatever you do!

Luv ya all!

Thanks Zo...you are the best. I need to pick your brain for some resources. Thankfully things are better between us. I swear the key to a strong relationship is communication.

I am so tired tonight. I have had 2 bbqs in 2 days, with another on tap for tomorrow. Its just hard with my son missing naps, and the nights are tough because of it, and it just makes you more tired the next day and I figure it's going to be Tuesday or Wednesday before he gets back into his routine. I love my friends and family...but 3 outings in 3 days is A LOT with a 2 year old.

So I am going to try to relax for a while and hopefully get a decent night's sleep so that I can wake up and start all over again. I feel like I am stuck in the movie Groundhog Day!

Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend.

Michelle,

there is a meditation for parting ways with someone and allowing yourself to do so without the guilt and remorse that we usually force on ourselves. It sounds to me like you may need to do that meditation. It allows for the fact that the person may get on board your current train, and that is great, but life is too short to waste it with people who refuse to honor us and what we need from life. It is not how we treat them, we do not have time to have people who treat us with such disrespect in our lives.

I am sending you energy and I pray that you will make the wisest choice for you, your journey and what you want for your future, not what would be easiest in this moment.

hugs,
Zo

I just got in an argument with my boyfriend and I am just so angry right now. It was all online and it was so stupid and to look at me the other people in the room have no clue how mad I am. But that means that my insides are churning and its just building and building.

Its after 9 pm I still havent had dinner, I have laundry to fold, the house is a mess and I am besides myself.

I am glad that I still have dinner and a snack to eat tonight because I hope that will be enough to "feed my feelings" for the night. Have I mentioned that I am so angry right now? emoticon

I better go figure out my next move...he is looking to talk to me again...sigh. I hate this.

Thanks for everything Zoe...

Feeling very "mushy" today. I don't want to do anything, and I am feeling down. There is no reason behind it...and that's the worst part because I don't know how to fix it. I am just hanging in and doing my best. I am proud that I haven't eaten over it, and it is going on 24 hours. That is rare for me.

Going to make sure I get a walk in and some gardening. I am hoping both will get my endorphins going and cheer me up.

I hope you all have a better day than me :)

I will pray for your son. I had a cousin that went through a phase like that, when it was over she went back to eating normal and now she overeats. I have another cousing who went through a phase where he wouldn't eat anything green, when he was about 6, now he is about 160lbs and 6ft2in tall. Hopefully, it is just a phase.

You have to make time to meditate. It is a sure way to take care of you and once you start doing it on a daily basis you will feel the difference when you do not.

I hope you enjoyed your time with your cousin.

Jewel,
Many years ago, it used to be called The Learning Tree, sometimes I still call it that, but it is the site I got the meditations from. The person who runs it seemed really helpful, when I was just starting out, I do not know if it is the same person or not, but it might be worth checking out.

Where is everyone else? I hope they are well!

hugs,
zo

Thanks Zoe...I just wish I could find the time to do my meditation/yoga/exercises...that is my biggest obstacle. emoticon

I am really tired tonight. I worked out in the garden for about an hour this afternoon which is always satisfying.

I had a meltdown this evening. I am very worried about my son's eating habits. He hardly eats, and when he does eat all he wants is bread. I am so worried about him getting all the nutrients he needs. He is so picky and just doesn't want to be bothered with eating. Sigh...

My cousin is coming over tonight for the Idol final. I hope you all have a good night.

You are welcome!

Make sure you do a centering meditation tomorrow. You could be feeling off because you are not centered. You could also be sensing something coming. It does not have to be something bad, it could be something good. If this is new for you, it will make you feel a little off balance.

Jewel,

I think the address is www.learningmeditation.com I hope I got that right, it is a wonderful site!

Today was the first day of my new workout regimen and I am one sore puppy! I think we are about to have more goslings, they others are getting so big and bold. One of the aunties had to rescue the little one from a dog, he thought he was ready to take the dog on. she came flying to the rescue, before I could even get out the door good.

hugs,
zo

Mammos are completely important! I know the waiting is hard, but not getting them done is just not smart! I will keep you in my prayers and I know everything will be alright. I have them annually and have had a couple of abnormals, it takes your breath away. Cancer of all kinds runs through both sides of my family, so, I had my first one at 24 and it was abnormal. It turned out to be nothing, but I do understand the scare. Stay out of the kitchen, if you are anxious, write one of us, go for a walk, but don't add guilt to your plate. I am here if you need to just unload.

hugs,
Zo

Hi Michelle, it's good you're doing the mammo thing. I know it's nerve wracking waiting for the results, but it's so worth it. I'm a cancer survivor and I have all kinds of tests now a days. I still get nervous but because of the frequency of the tests it's not like before.

Take care,

Hey everyone -

Hope you are all having a good day. I just went for my first mammogram, it was just a baseline, but I am still nervous. All I can think about it the results, and I have to wait like 3 days to know anything. (with the weekend it becomes 5) so I am just trying to get some nervous energy out.

Foot doctor this afternoon...

Kate,
Qi Gong is wonderful! I am not able to do it now, because of my size, and I can not relax enough to get the most from it, I feel self-conscious. I also liked tai-chi when I took it in college. I am glad you liked your counselor, that is so important.And he is right meditation and tuning into your chakral energy will be invaluable to you in the future. If you need me, please, just ask.

Michelle,
I hope your day of rest went well and you are more centered and at peace.

I had a good day. The goslings hatched. so, we have three fuzzy little goslings waddling around the pond and the quad. The auntie geese, let me get pretty close to them, it was such a treat! I got to spend some time with my cousin, which is always nice, and it was just a nice day.

hugs,
Zo

I went into the Pine Street Clinic today and met my new practitioner who will be helping me heal from chemo. His name is Michael Broffman and he is great.Among other things, he wants me to really be serious about my meditation and integrating it into my life. So I guess I'm on the right start here with lots of things to do in the future. Also I'll be taking up ti chi and/or chi gung.
He is writing up a list of recommendations for me after our session together today. He knows people in the area that can work w/me. He works w/chinese medicines to help people heal from cancer and the chemo effects.

You are quite welcome!

Michelle,

I am sorry you are feeling out of sorts! Try doing a grounding meditation or spinning your chakras. Or simply try sitting in a quiet dark place and tapping into your inner self. In the meantime, I am sending you peaceful energy and love!

I had a wonderful day today! I totally over did the exercise and will be in traction tomorrow, but it was fun! I feel so mellow, I could float!

I wish everyone a night full of sweet dreams!

hugs,
Zo

I am in a very cranky mood today :( Not 100% sure why. Had a rough night with my 2 yo, and the house is in chaos after a crazy weekend, but it shouldn't be this bad.

I am trying to work my way out of it, and staying on plan. Its the one thing I feel like I am in control of right now.

It helps a lot. It gives me a starting place. Any meditation I do seems to help relax me. I do have a fear of going too deep and loosing control. (This might be kinda silly.) I don't want to be so fearful.

You've been wonderful,

Sort of...

I am talking about something that would start out with you sitting in a dark room. "Now close your eyes. Breathe in fully, now push the breathe out slowly. Breathe in again, now blow the breathe out through your nose. Listen to the sound of your breathing as your breath comes in, and goes out. Slowly. filter out the sound of the traffic outside., etc..."

Something that will talk you through focusing on just your breathing. I think that is where you need to start. I guide might be able to tell by your breathing if you are in a meditative state, but if your problem is getting to the meditative state, I am not sure how they can help you with that.

For me, it was like lifting off layers of sound until the only sound left was my breathing. I became entranced in my breathing, 5, 10, 15 mins would ease by while I was just listening to myself breathe. No thoughts would come through my brain that I was aware of. When I could do that for 30 mins. I moved onto the pillar of fire meditation. Focusing on my breathing until it was all I could hear then, using my imagination, I made myself see a giant pillar of fire burning in the darkness in front of me. Then when I could hold the image in my mind for as long as I wanted I turned the fire red, then orange, then yellow, then green, the blue, then purple, then crystalline. Then I tryed a staircase meditation, the further down the staircase I went the further I was from this reality. I hope this helps! I will keep searching for a good basic beginning meditation.

hugs,
Zo

I am glad you got out and got a walk in. I wish you much success with the meditation, though I am not sure it is something that can be taught, without the other person actually being in your head or with you on the astral, which is way advanced.

I think maybe you should try some of the guided meditations out there, and try to learn to focus on your breathing. Build up the amount of time you can do that, then move on to holding a vision for a certain period of time, then move on to one of the meditations like the pillar of fire or waterfall. I realize that I do not know how to teach someone to meditate, it is something that I just did, the same with astral work. I will think about it and see if I can come up with anything. Can anyone else think of a way to help her along?

hugs,
Zo

Hi all, Happy almost Mother's Day! Having a good day today. Took a walk w/hubby around the neighborhood. We have a "circle" that we walk. It's only a mile but it has good sized hills. We are planning on taking a ride a little later. Won't be a long one like planned, but any ride w/do.
I plan to spend some time w/mmbc today and hopefully learn some meditation techniques.

Take care all

Very busy day today, and I am exhausted! It was my niece's first birthday today and I was running around all day, shopping, then gardening, then cleaning and wrapping, then her party. I just got home and I am pooped.

Best news is I stuck to my food plan, despite all the goodies!

Jump in anywhere. Try to do one of the elemental focuses. Look over the meditations. Ask questions!

Welcome!

hugs,
Zo
