A Spiritual Reading…. Lost in the Light.

Hi Bloggers,

So tonight, I went to the ‘Spirit Cafe’ in Fredericton to get a ‘free spriritual reading’. There is a guy out the front, and he is a kind of a tout – like the ones that try to pull groups of lads into strip joints, but this is very different, because the spiritual café is a Christian type of organization.

So I went in, was greeted by a nice lady. She offered me a ‘menu’ of spiritual options, including a ‘spiritual reading,’ ‘spiritual healing,’ ‘dream interpretation,’ and some other stuff.

I chose the ‘dream interpretation.’ Of course there is a religious aspect, but it was quite subtle. I was asked to write down my dream so it could be discussed with the dream interpreters. I waited my turn, then I was led into a room that had two ladies in it, with a couple of spare chairs. I was introduced, and then they asked me to read out the dream.

I used my ‘snake in a cage dream’ (I blogged about it here). It was a disturbing dream, and I was afraid that I was going to get a bunch of tsk tsk, and references to phallic sins or something. They didn’t say that.

They asked me to connect with the lord to ask for interpretation for my dream. I did this as we all took a few moments to ask what my dream was about, in silence.

It was somewhat enlightening.  They had some good points – not really relevant to draw out here. It made me think a bit about a different aspect of seeing the dreams through someone else’s interpretation. They were actually quite up beat and enthusiastic rather than disturbed.

They asked me to pray with them, and they offered thanks for the lord bringing me to them.

All around, I’d say it was a nice experience, and these people really care and believe in what they are doing. Plus, they are collecting donations for the local homeless shelters, and I think that’s a worthy cause!

For something to celebrate that, I offer Bahamas, ‘Lost in the Light.’ Which, I guess I kind of am.

Hot Yoga 4 – got sweat?

Hi Bloggers,

I went to hot yoga last night. Man, was it sweaty…. I had my work day done. I was tired, like nodding off tired when I was at work. I was ho-hum about going to yoga last night. When I opened up WP and saw some comments and felt a little more connected with the ‘blog-fam’ I got a little boost and decided to pull on some lycra and get my arse over to the gym.

I went to the same class as last Tuesday, at the other main gym. It was moderately busy. As soon as I settled in I felt how warm it was, and I knew this was going to be a hot session (of yoga – this is not one of ‘those’ stories..). 

So we got through the regular movements etc. Normally, about 2/3 into the session I am starting to ask myself about whether I’m going to make it through the session, as sweat absolutely pours from me, and my muscles tire from the 10th chattaranga/cobra/downward dog flow in a row.

But I got through it. Even felt pretty good after the session.

In other quirky news, my car – the little silver bullet, busted a windscreen wiper blade yesterday morning. After yoga I popped down to Walmart to grab a replacement and fitted it right there in the parking lot. It had been raining a lot yesterday, and driving when you can’t clear your windscreen is no fun.

Also, the door locking mechanism with the key (as the remote button doesn’t work…) is super temperamental. It decides whether to lock, or not when the key is turned. Lots of times I try to turn the key to lock it and it doesn’t lock, until like the 8th attempt. The other night I gave up because it wouldn’t lock at all. Then, mysteriously, it started locking on the first go. And now, for the moment, it works. Too weird eh?

Listening to the Universe, becoming a receiver…

Do you ever listen to the Universe? I’m not religious, but I am spiritual. Some may feel tempted to debate that, to suggest that my atheism is something less than the certified, pasteurised, homogenized, documented and well established religions…. but, being human, and being on this planet, and being self aware, I am capable of feelings and thoughts of my own in terms of my own spirituality.

When you are going through life, sometimes we are looking for direction, sometimes we are looking for answers. Sometimes we are just experiencing, and we get subliminal or even obvious messages in various forms. Sometimes, you don’t get an answer or you get a new question. When you become more aware of this possibility, you become, a receiver….
