Something exciting? Well... have you read any of Richard Bach's books? Johnathon Livingston Seagull, Illusions and there's another, but can't remember the name. I found them very uplifting.

Anyway... here's a true story that actually happened to me.

I went away with a group of almost complete strangers on a weekend 'spiritual' retreat. They were a mixed bunch of 'new age' people of different beliefs, practices etc. I arived late at the site. There were two buildings clearly marked 'Ladies Quarters' and Men's Quarters. To my surprise I found that this group had waived this rule and the men's lodge was understandably empty šŸ™‚

Being tired after my trip, I was in no mood for cavorting. So I retired to bed in the empty barracks wearing only my jocks. I was awakened during the night by the rustling of sheets etc. I imagined that I heard female voices but just went back to sleep. Next morning when I lept out of bed, I was greeted by a lot of teeheeing female faces peering out from under their bed clothes. It seemed that the newly arriving women, seeking to avoid all the lecherous males had presumed that they were safest in the abandoned men's lodge. As I stood there in nothing but my jocks, I quickly discovered that my face was quite capable of turning a bright red. However, I found to my surprise that my non-predatory attitude endeared me to one special lady who unbeknown to me had slept in the next bed.

We went canoing together the next day. That night the group had a massage workshop running. This involved using all sorts of different scented oils. I paired up with my canoing lady and massaged her in the subdued light to the sound of meditation music until she purred like a kitten with delight. As the wee hours approached and the massaging couples slowly drifted away, we soon found ourselves alone. The sense of connectedness was so powerful that we were carried away by the smells, the music, the touch and ...

To be continued....

You two make me blush.
I agree with you kitten that society expects no down time today, you snooz you loose, and you have hell to pay if you do slow down, and I'm paying. 2nd bout of the flu, been sick for almost 30 days, and can't shake it ready to resort to estrogen, damn it.
lewis, fish person eh? Well your almost as bad as a scorpio, and a scorpio's best companion. Emotional, artistic, deep, moody, pron to addictions, and frequently fighting sore throats. Two best friends, and a daughter are fish people. Good folk.

Tez,
Was yet to come? Or is? Promises, promises...hey, I deal in the concrete, remember! If you've got something to tell me, tell me... Why do I feel like this is dualing story tellers! Okay, so you pulled your "gun" out, now maybe I need to do the same!

ps. by the way, Tez, this kitten doesn't purrrrr, she growlllls!

Molly,
Blush? I doubt that. Who made the firm comment? Anyway, I hope you feel better soon...are you taking massive quanities of Vitamin C? And I heard those zinc drops are good--I have a hard time with the taste, though! One of the other things I use is Ocean Nasal Spray...it's salt water. Very good for the nasal passages and the back of the throat, etc. French wine tasters (those at the vineyards) rinse their noses every morning with salt water to keep their taste sense really strong and to prevent colds, etc. which might prevent them from doing their job!

The sequel:

That night we, retired to our respective beds within a few feet of each other without consummating what we started. (Concrete enough?)

The next morning the whole group partook of some pre-breakfast meditation.

At breakfast, the lady in question recounted her visionary meditation experience, just had. She saw herself in a middle-eastern country, lying by the side of the road with a badly injured leg. She saw a man walking towards her along this road. She recognised that man to be me. She grabbed at my waist girthing or belt and tried to lift herself up pleading for help.

I was staggered. I had this exact vision some weeks earlier in a deep yoga bhati meditation session. I was walking along a road(track) in a middle eastern country. I found this woman crying for help. Her leg had been very badly burned in a fire!! She was clasping at my belt, trying to lift herself up. She was pleading for me to help her. I was very disturbed because I knew not how to help her. I came out of the meditation session with a jolt. At the time of my meditation experience, I had not had anything to do with the woman at the retreat. I didn't know who the woman in my vision was.

I am still at a loss to explain this extraordinary experience. Coincidence? Mental telepathy? Eerie?

I've never seen this woman since that retreat. Ships passing in the night. šŸ™‚

About your viewing of my story telling as "dualing" - that's quaint. šŸ™‚

You said, "ps. by the way, Tez, this kitten doesn't purrrrr, she growlllls! " Am I supposed to trrrrrremble????

Tez,
Don't forget she is a scorpio, always expect the unexpected.
But I get that you could handle just about what ever.
As a child I had a reoccuring dream of my mother rushing into the bathroom of my house, she was in distress, pushed me out of the way, and jumped into the shower. When she came out her skin was with sores all over it. I had tried to analyze the dream several times, which I had into my adult life. When my mother hit 40 she developed serious psorisis, like a snake she shed weekly and was for ever in pain with these sores over her body. I never had the dream again.
Now if I could just dream of lotto numbers that were winners.

Thanks for the advice kitten, I am going to the drug store and stock up. The weather I am sure hasn't helped, 80 one day, and rain the next. It happens every time I go to a new gym which I did the beginning of January when it first hit me, then I guess should have stopped to heal, but hell bent on trying to raise my energy levels, didn't and relapsed with a different disease. At least I am not hacking like I was for the first 30 days I don't have time for this. Blush, yea, but I am sure it was my own take on the rest of the story!

Very interesting!

I often wonder if the 'akoshic record' of a events past, present and future really exists beyond time. Do we tap into it in dreams, meditation, etc without realising it??? Perhaps this explains dreams which accurately predict future events in detail. Like the guy who dreamt about a plane crash in which he even saw the aircraft flight number. He was dismissed by the authorities as a crackpot until it came true! Police take these clairvoyants seriously enough to follow up leads given by them. Interesting, eh! Perhaps, as a child, you did foresee your mom's affliction. They say we all have this psychic ability.

Sorry to hear about your sadness, mate.

Can you tell us the reason for it?

Just...well, when you read this, say a little prayer for me...I have a big hurdle to get over. I am trying to step out of the darkness and into the light. Will explain more later, my dear ones. Appreciate any and all blessings!

Go Xena! You've already got all the power to leap the hurdle and then some left over.

Swing that broadsword hard, fast and with precision on the way over...

Tez,
Dearest, I love the male analogy about the broadsword...and the Xena thing, too. I do look like her, or I guess since I am older, she looks like me. tee hee. ( and it's true too)
Well, I was at a place where I had to do something that I have never done before (and you thought I have done it all). It involved something in the public eye...and added to that I was at a crossroad in my relationship. There was great potential to fall FLAT on my face in both areas. The relationship part is still evolving, but I think we made significant progress...I spoke clearly, and with conviction...although the discussion did not go on for hours (minutes actually), I was open and receptive. Often I think I am the only one who fears rejection...when in fact he does too, he just hides it better. We shall see where this new path takes us. Relationships, I have found, are full of twists and turns...and those little edges condition us to handle whatever comes up. If things are too linear and smooth...the cracks that suddenly appear might swallow us!!
As for the other thing...I will not say I was brillant, but I will say I pulled it off. It was a big thing for me...part of my own growth...and helped me to see that I can do things that I never thought I was capable of. As a matter of fact...everything I am doing at the moment was unimaginable 5 years ago. When my husband died...I thought my life was over as well. This path did not seem one of my options. It might be insane and chaotic...but Scorpios learn from those kinds of experiences. We always do things the hard way. Okay, Tez... back to those "hard" words again. Hope all is well, down unda', dancing this weekend???

Yep! I've been dancing twice this week already. I'll be going again tonight. (Saturday) We are one day ahead of you here.

There is one waltz called the St Valentine's Waltz. My girlfriend and I danced it to that tune the 'Anniversay Waltz' on a nearly empty dance floor. I was able to really put some effort in and not worry about colliding with other couples. We whirled, swayed, and really got into it. What a magic feeling that is. It's positively sublime. A feeling, beyond words to describe. I can understand why the whirling dervishes of the Sufi religion dance as part of their spiritual practices.

Congrats on your triumph over your own fears in successfully leaping that 'wall'.

Tez,
I am in awe of your dancing ability. I, unfortunatly, am unable to do more than move my hips about. When I was a child, and took dance, I always had to be the "boy" becuase I was 5ft 7in at age nine. So, now I can dance, but only with very short men and only if I can lead. Both of those things never happen. It is really quite sad because my bf is very skilled and talented...and I long to grace the dance floor with him. Have been thinking of going to one of those Arthur Murray studios to re-learn how to dance...I just can't seem to be able to let go and follow. I wonder if that is perhaps indicative of my whole life process. Am glad to see you are having a lovely time...and what did you give your lady for Valenine's Day? I got wonderful, delicious chocolates and brandy. Sipping a bit now, as I write.

Thank you for the congrats...this growing up business can be tough at times! I have always been a Xena, willing to fight for others, but putting myself last...it was nice to hear applause for only me this time. Very nice indeed!

Off to curl up in bed for this tired kitty...have more mice to scurry after in the am.

How is everyone doing? It continues to be cold here...I look longingly at my gardens, wishing for the first shoots of Spring. What is it about the winter months that push us into dark depressions? Is it a biological need to hibernate? I have a friend who struggles with insomnia during the winter months. Granted his schedule always seems more hectic, but I wonder if it more of a depression rather than a cyclical sleeping disorder? Have any others seen this phenomena? I personally find the sun to be a great force in my mood swings, yet it doesn't seem to matter how sunny it might be in the winter, I still get the blues! Or do we need anxiety in our lives...it tends to force us to be creative.

I have often wondered about that anxiety thing, seems I am at my best understress, and lost with out it. Perhaps a Scorpio thing. Glad, and not at all surprised at the out come, like a phoenix we are. Good for you, and congrats. The dancing thing, never knew how good I was until I had a good partner, a man I met up north, for the first and only time I did not lead, and he was much shorter than I, it was better than sex, and lasted longer, and was much more fulfilling, that is that I can remember šŸ™‚ Sure wish my mate was interested, I would give ole Arthur Murry a try, had a friend make lots of money at those things, guess we are all looking for some fun. Try a tanning bed for the sun thing, I started with the crazy hours, and it did help some what, now I must adjust to regular hours, always something. Friday was the last day at the clinic, what a bitter sweet experience. No bridges burned, except with some clients, and issues of abandonment with the staff, but I said sorry ain't co - dependent no more. Wanna buy a house?
