Paying attention to what comes in and out of my body is a part of my spiritual practice. It’s about mind, spirit AND body.

I just threw out 4 cans of Maesri curries.  Taking a look in my food pantry, I recognize my habit to over buy.  In the case of canned goods, often by the time I think about using them, they are years past the expiration date.  In this case, 3 years past.  Today I realize that the state of my pantry reflects the state of my digestive system last week: a steady accumulation of too much food, so much there’s no room for it all.  Last week I got a good reminder of what happens when I do that.

Domino asks how to train her lover to meet her needs. Stop Faking Orgasm; Know What Turns You On; Tell Him That

In a recent reading with Domino, we talked about her relationship with her new man.  “Like most men, he thinks my body is ready the moment he gets an erection.”   They’ve known each other 2 years and just recently became lovers.  Now she’s wondering if she made a mistake and if they’re on the way to ruining their friendship. She and I have talked about this before with her previous lovers.  The simple answer is (1) know what you like, then (2) tell him and show him.  If you’re intimate enough with this man to have sex with him, you’re intimate enough to discuss it with him.  If you know what your body responds to, honor him by telling him the sequence of touch and caress that gets you there.  If he forgets and acts hastily, slow him down and remind him.  At first, if he’s not trained to be real conscious about sex, be prepared for him to get his feelings hurt and stop altogether.  Believe me, that’s preferable to faking an orgasm and becoming more and more unsatisfied without him knowing it. If he has to be continually reminded, she has to decide if it’s worth the hassle.

Inverted Body Scanners in Airports Show Entire Naked Body; you gotta hand it to the guys who decided to make people feel shame about their bodies. Just another control technique.

At  Inverted Body Scanner Image Shows Naked Body In Full Living Color, it is reported, “The full body scanners to be rolled out in airports across the country not only produce detailed pictures of your genitals, but once inverted some of those images also display your naked body in full living color.  And you don’t need to be a graphics wizard to pull off the trick – inverting a photo is a simple process that takes one click and is an option available even in the most basic image editing software.

Why did I get through the busy line when she couldn’t?

Domino had been trying to reach a government organization through an automated phone system and she had exactly 3 days to get through.  She began calling on Day 1.  The line was busy.  She called more often on Day 2.  The line continued to be busy.  On Day 3, she began calling as soon as they opened and called continuously for 90 minutes.  She kept calling while she dropped 2 of her 3 kids at daycare, got gas and shopped for groceries, continually doing the automatic redial.  Line was still busy.  When I arrived at her house for our appointment, she told me she had to continue calling and she had one child sick.  She was exasperated, she had things to do.   One of them was get her little one happy and settled so we could have our time together.  I suggested I continue to call for her while she did that.  Why did I get through when she couldn’t for 2 days?   Continue reading

I love paying my bills

I’m writing checks to the IRS for my quarterly estimated tax payment and the checks to pay the property taxes. Thank you to everyone whose dollars allow everything to be paid on time, thank you to me for never doubting it and thank you to You-Know-Who for, well, making everything in the universe possible.

You know that dream where you can’t find your car and you’re trying to get home and no one has a phone that works? Yeah, just had that one.

Before you judge others or claim any absolute truth…

Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.

I get a compliment during my post office juggling act

Aw nice, I was just in the post office and an elderly woman told me I was a vision of loveliness and have a smile that lit up the whole room. Snap!  It’s all about peception, isn’t it? My truth was I felt kinda icky, uncombed hair down and no makeup, not feeling real smiley when I walked in. Her truth appears to be I became a vision of loveliness when I picked up the small box someone else dropped when she bumped into them. I think she just liked my juggling act (it never hit the floor – I got applause!)

I make poor food choices and I pay the price, it’s not like I don’t know

Wednesday, I bought a package of broccoli slaw and probably ate half of it a few hours before bed. Ugh.  I’m glad I didn’t eat much the whole day if that was gonna be brewing in my tum. Didn’t eat much of course except for the half quart of raw broccoli with mayo, sugar and vinegar and celery salt an hour before bed. Oh, and for the first time in a couple of years I drank an orange soda about noon the same day.  Ok, and the month before i’ve been eating bread or pasta each day and last week splurged on half a dozen packages of Chick O Stick and strawberry candies, and an entire package of goldfish crackers.  I’m sure my pH was whack, ah fermenting at its best.  Thursday  I spent 24 hours purging every 1-2 hours.   Live and learn. I only go on a binge like that a couple of times a year.  The good news is if I can ever get vertical again, wow I’m skinnier now for sure.   I always talk about the healthy things I eat, now time to tell on myself for making poor choices, and reaping the consequences of that.  On the upside: Nice having Nurse JoyBoy taking care bringing me Gatorade and  handling the delivery of the July Horizons Magazine. I’ve never not gotten it out on the day it was delivered, now it has to wait until Monday. More upside: The subscriptions all went out Saturday!

My source of sickness this week: vibrational match

I wrote on Facebook, hehe this is me since Thursday:
From Abraham-Hicks™  If there is no source of illness, why are there so many sick people? It is because they have found lots of excuses to hold themselves in vibrational discord with wellness. They are not letting it in. And when they don’t let it in, the absence of it looks like sickness. And when enough of them do it you say, “Oh, there must be a source of sickness. In fact, let’s give it a label. Let’s call it cancer. Let’s call it AIDS. Let’s call it all kinds of terrible things, and let’s imply that it jumps into people’s experience.” And we say it never jumps into anybody’s experience. It’s just that people learn through trial and error, and—through banging around with each other—patterns of thought that don’t let it in.

Domino: Do you really subscribe to this, Andrea? By this, I mean that illness is not injury, or virus or bacterium but “vibrational discord with wellness?”

Andrea: I absolutely do. A dozen people can be sneezed on and not all of them catch the cold. A block of houses can be devasted in a hurricane and one left untouched. The difference is their vibrational point of attraction, their vibrational resonance. I know this to be an absolute fact. I understand how others may disagree, I do get that.
