Hi, I'm Zayjah,

The one thing people don't know about me is that all my life I've always wanted to be a famous actor.I love movies so much and whenever I watch a movie that love I always imagined my self is the main character, and I think about my life sometimes as a famous actor.

Hi my name is Shevy and one thing that many people might not know about me is that I practiced Buddhism for several years when I was 19 years old plus…. I use to chant almost everyday two days a week.

Hello everyone, 

My name is Tracy Lynn, I am very new here & I saw this post & wanted to introduce myself just a bit. In regards to some of the questions listed there were a few I want to share with you & a few other "about me" items as well.

What did your childhood self yearn to be when he/she/they grew up? When I was growing up as I aged I had a variety of different careers I wanted to have, from veterinarian to music teacher. Though as I grew & went along my journey, including my own healing I discovered my true passion was to simply help others in any form I could which has now translated into me utilizing my intuitive & healing gifts as an Energy Healer & Healing Touch Practitioner.

 
What was your biggest mistake turned lesson? Lessons, wow I have truly had so many, but I can say now that I do not view any of the situations as "mistakes" as I have come to accept them for everything they have taught me & made me who I am today. One thing others however may view was a "mistake" I made was I got pregnant prior to being married (my first year of college) & eventually dropped out of college & married my daughter's father. Going through that relationship I lost a lot of who I am & it was very negative. Through that however I was able to learn so much about how to speak my truth & create my own boundaries. After 12/13 years of marriage we did get divorced & I am now because of that relationship in a very strong relationship with a strong foundation & with someone who not only allows me to speak my truth but encourages it! This relationship has given me so much, but most importantly it is allowing me to heal generational traumas of constantly holding back who we are & is giving my daughter the views that she can live in her truth always as there will be someone who loves here & supports her that will also NEVER dull her light.


What unique quirks do you have? "Quirks" are definetly something I have, most of the unique abilities I have are part of my healing practice, I actually as I stated am an intuitive which means I am blessed with the ability to sense other's energy & even hear/feel different things that I can work with to help others on their journey.

 

I guess a "normal" thing about me is that I now have a blended family, in the family we have a total of 4 kids & they range in age from 16 to 8, my husband is going back to school to be a nurse, is a veteran of the United States Air Force, & I now own HT Energy Work which is my healing practice where I walk others through the healing needed to achieve their highest self.

I am absolutely blessed to have learned to speak my truth & fully embrace who I am which I now use as a road map/survival guide to help others, especially my children to heal & learn to live mindful & lives that are filled with joy, love, & peace.

Thank you for reading about me! I am so excited to be here, have a blessed & amazing day.

Vibrate Higher in Love & Light,
Tracy Lynn,
Healing Tough Practitioner/Energy Healer

Hey there, I'm a self ordained hippie from San Francisco living in Texas. I've been on a holistic journey for over 10 years now with a disdain for western medicine and strong need to be connected to source. Sometimes I feel guilty speaking of the universe because I grew up in church and it seems to devalue God but within my heart I believe that the Universe and God are one. That's something that I can't talk about out loud so it felt good typing that just now. Well enough of me I look forward to being part of this community.

    • I am on Day 6 of the challenge and feeling pretty good. I have been really busy and didn't get to post, but loving this so much! I am so thankful for awareness as am walking, and doing the body scan to help see about my feelings and emotions relating to my overeating. The breaths are really helping me with the mindful eating challenge also. I have so much gratitude!! 
    • Thank you so much Gillian! I really appreciate you!
    • Hi Gillian, I read the article by Grossman and Choi and your comments about some of their findings. Overcoming the current divides is a difficult task as you and all the contributors to this thread acknowledge. I want to add that it is difficult to know how and when to try to bridge the divide and with whom. My wife and I live amidst a community of about 250 condominiums. Lots of us walk or walk with our dogs. I know from trusted neighbors that several other neighbors with whom I interact while walking are Fox News believers. Since they have never uttered a word about their beliefs to me I was shocked. They seem to be hardworking, responsible and friendly. Thus the two identities are not mutually exclusive. My response is to say the Loving Kindness prayer for them mentally after I walk away from an encounter. Plus  I chat just a bit longer so as to show the good feelings I have about their basic worth. That is what I personally can do. I know that is not enough to overcome divisions but it is what is possible for me towards that end. Daniel
    • Thank you Gillian! And a lovely weekend for you too! 🙂  Jolanda
    • For those interested in the capacity for mindfulness to help bridge divides, I just came across this really interesting article: https://theconversation.com/its-not-stress-thats-killing-us-its-hate-maybe-mindfulness-can-help-171335 It explores how theoretically, if we understand mindfulness to be about awareness AND acceptance, it should lead to less intolerance and divisiveness. However, in the research put forth by the writers of this piece, they note that awareness and acceptance are often treated as independent processes, and that: "people who reported greater awareness reported lower acceptance and vice versa." The studies also found that participants who reported greater acceptance were simultaneously reporting less engagement with difficult issues. It seems to me that it is crucial for us to engage in difficult issues if we are going to better understand and overcome them. Another part of this article I connect with is this paragraph: "Acceptance doesn’t mean that we have to passively accept whatever cards we are dealt. It means confronting our discomfort long enough to explore what needs to be changed and being malleable enough to consider vantage points we typically ignore. Reducing stress by avoiding difficult conversations is a short-term solution that only further polarizes perspectives." Anyways, if you have a look at the article and want to share your thoughts, I'd love to hear them.
