Cristina replied to Daisy's discussion What is your view(s) on ABORTION now?
"I was at a homeschooling convention here in Orlando which was not supposed to have any religous affiliation. I saw a lot of shocking things at this convention but the worst was when a group of young girls (probably 10-15 yrs old) approched me and…"

Cristina replied to Daisy's discussion SO WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE UNDIES TO WEAR NOW?? BOXERS, BRIEFS, OR THONGS?????
"ha! I did that once also towards the end of my membership. I wore a black thing and black bra to a temple wedding. Not that I ever really wore garments anyways...I always thought they were a way to keep women looking frumpy."

"Thanks for the additional tidbits of your experience. I believe what you experienced was real, but likely alter dimensional. It very much mirrors similar experienced people have had in out-of-body experiences or near-death-experiences. Thanks again…"

not a good night...random thoughts.

Posted on August 17, 2009 at 9:50pm 4 Comments

Why am I so unhappy sometimes? I’m bored out of my mind. I keep trying so hard to be a happy person. I do not feel like I am living the life I was meant to live. I hate living in Clermont…boring. I hate being home so much. What kind of life am I meant to live? A creative life. A life where I reach out to people. A life where I involve my kids in community and culture. A life where I have energy and have fun. A life where my husband is the same…fun and initiates fun. An organized – easier life.… Continue

Heavenly Sunday

Posted on March 22, 2009 at 7:30pm 9 Comments

Today is Sunday. It was a wonderful day. I woke up to the sound of my five year old son’s footsteps coming towards my bedroom door. I kept my eyes closed because I know he gets a kick out of “quietly” tip toeing to my bed to whisper, “Good morning, Mom.” Then I open my eyes and see his bright blue eyes and smiling face...that is heaven.





I hear my one year old jibber jabbering away in the next room. I open her door to see her sitting in her crib having a conversation with a… Continue

Thanks for the book recommend. If I ever get through the ever increasing list of books I want to read, than that one will be next ;-) Glad things are going better for you.

Thanks Micah, I too can benefit from these. I've been totally emo the past few days!!! I credit it to the shift :)

Hi Cristina! I couldn't help over-read your conversation with Gia. Depending on what it is your negative thoughts are revolving around, you may benefit from EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) which is kind of like mental/emotional acupuncture. Search google or go here to learn more: http://www.emofree.com/

You might also benefit from the book, "Feelings buries alive never die" which talks about mental "Scripting" to address your spirit/subconscious mind to reprogram your self perceptions and thought patterns: http://www.amazon.com/Feelings-Buried-Alive-Never-Die/dp/0911207023/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248795003&sr=8-1

Good luck!

Thank you so much!!! Just know that this funk you are in, a lot of people (including me!) are being affected right now by the shift. It probably has more to do with the positions of the stars and planets shifting than we may realize!!! So don't be hard on yourself, and remember, when your higher self is breaking thru, your ego will fight for it's life. Meaning, the closer you get to your spiritual truth, the less you are in your ego(lower vibrations)mind. Your ego may be confusing you right now! When this happens, I simply address the ego mind and tell it thank you now die!!! Immediately i am filled with warmth and peace to fill the chatter and worries in my mind. Well because you have asked, and want to make sense of life, I can assure you that your path is making a way for you to find the truth, including our interactions as well!!! I am excited for you. Thanks for your friendship! Gia

I would love to connect with you further and help you in any way I can! also you have beautiful kids!!! Perhaps the avenue for you to take right now is that of identifying yourself as the Goddess that you are. I have a Group on facebook called Global Golden Goddesses, if you are on FB, please feel free to check it out!!! Namaste, Love, Gia

2 by Evan Lord.....A New Age perspective on 'organized' systems of thought, and the tale of a former missionary for the LDS church, the story of how he came from being mission president to finding the New Age. Very powerful, magical eye opening book that I recommend every religiously affected soul read twice!! http://www.2byevanlord.com

Thanks =) I am still in school. I'm going to be graduating in May and (hopefully) going back immediately to get a teaching credential. I've been studying psychology which has been great. To an extent, it's part of the reason I left!
