... my horoscope for this coming week says that the "psychic" window is open for me, which is in complete agreement synchronistic things that have been happening and experiences which have reinforced my "sixth (seventh?) sense" over the past couple weeks. Therefore, I am going to try in a very positive way to begin to manifest something that I've been dancing around for awhile. I've had near misses with it: probably because I wasn't 100% certain that I wanted it in my life. Or maybe I just wasn...

If you've been talking over the course of a couple months with someone and noticed that every time they're talking with you, they either gently make that 'smacking you' motion with their day planner (or notebook, or hand, or pick something up off the desk) or mimick poking you with their car keys, would you consider that a sign of passive-aggression/disdain - even though it's done in a joking manner - or a sign that the person is maybe projecting wanting to touch you? :shrug: I'm too old for ...

Hi Everyone :hi: Some of you probably remember when HippieDog Hank fell out the car window. A few months later, I noticed a lump on his belly - lower than his ribcage but higher than his private parts - about the size of a golf ball, and squishy. When we were at the vet last fall for a routine visit, I asked her about it and she said it was "probably a hernia - lots of puppies are born with them" and then said it was something so minor that they could repair it some time when they're cleani...

Spirit has seen fit to toss a few obstacles in my path, just when I had decided to give my notice at my present job in Indy and relocate back to WI when my lease is up in May. Out of nowhere, 2 different headhunters with 2 different opportunities. Out of nowhere, one of the real estate agents at my part time job wants to show me houses, and the mortgage guy seems fairly certain he can get me qualified. I pause with my relocation plans to investigate these opportunities. One interviewer never ...

So I got a phone call from a consulting service last evening, they saw my resume on Monster.com and wanted to talk to me about a possibility in Lafayette, about an hour north of here. I listened to what he had to say, thought about it over night, and emailed him this afternoon with a "thank you, but no". WHY AM I SUCH A CHICKEN ??? Pro's: * My current boss just gave her notice, so now would be the perfect time for me to leave Conseco - things are a little bit unsteady, to say the least. * Ther...

Disclaimer: When I meditate I turn off lights, furnace or a/c, windows and blinds are closed - so the possibility of drafts or 'cold sensations' etc is minimalized. I also light several candles and usually have a smudge bowl burning as well. Anyway, since I haven't meditated in a couple months, I went thru about the first 10 minutes just unwinding, focusing, relaxing (I didn't want to just 'jump in' with "I want I want I want"), then I gave my thanks to Spirit and all my guides, teachers, and ...

Sorry for my overabunance of posting lately, it seems all sorts of unusual and offbeat topics are trying to sort their way out of my gray matter. :silly: ANYWAY. On to the subject: I can't recall where I saw it, some astrology site IIRC, but it was a little blurb that said something to the effect of "Looking for Your Soulmate? Be careful, you just might find it!" and then went on to explain that contrary to the romanticised definition of soulmates as being two people totally in sympatico who ...

It's that time again! If you get something from the monthly prayer thread, please think about volunteering to coordinate the thread for September. It really takes very little effort. If you are interested in volunteering at some point but can't for September, please also reply here and state when you are interested in volunteering. A few people have already informed us that they would be willing to coordinate future threads but are not able to do so yet. Here's a list of all previous prayer...

Does anyone else seem to have a particular month, or time of year that gives them grief - an almost predictable span in which anything and everything that can go wrong, does? As I look back, September has always, always been miserable for me. :shrug: And this one, monumentally so. Job, relationships, money, mental health, and yesterday for no apparent reason, my car just quit running! (It's only 5 years old!) Is it because I'm 'starting a new astrological year' and things are all aflutter? (I...
