Review a book about inner healing
Hey Bloggers,
I am working right now to promote a book, Soul Discovery: 9 Principles for Revealing Your Sacred Gifts. Author Joan Marie invites people to “dance with their soul,” and change lives as she awakens her readers to their true life’s purpose and their soul’s sacred gifts. She has an incredible gift for what she calls “ability to feel what is going on in other people’s bodies as well as hear, see and feel those who have passed over.” With this gift, she has brought mental and physical healing to many grateful people.
She is a very popular medium and has been a guest on numerous radio and television shows across the country, like the Whoopi Goldberg Show. Whoopi Goldberg has even endorsed her book, saying “Sometimes, people are just born with "it". They can hear your voice and be able to tell you all about yourself. Joan Marie seems to be able to tap into that thing that makes us all human. I've been around her; I've seen her do her thing”.
If you would like to learn more about heightening and developing your intuition and how Joan Marie utilizes the Law of Attraction, email me at chelseasterling@gmail.com to review the book on your blog. After you review the book, you will receive a free teleseminar with Joan Marie and get an opportunity to get personal advice.

Have a great day!

Welcome!
L is for Lupus, an online directory of reviews and recommendations for patients by patients, has officially gone online today.

Bear in mind, this is just the beginning. This site will not be limited to just lupus-related material. I've begun to include Fibromyalgia books and websites to review, and I hope to include other auto-immune diseases as well.

I'm very excited to be ahead of schedule! Please help get this started and write some reviews! Your opinion will help others research their auto-immune disease. I hope to see you there!

introductory post
Hello, 
I just want to let everyone know I am here and joining the community, not just lurking or anything.  It has been a very long time since I posted on a livejournal and I cannot remember how to make an lj cut.  If someone could let me know that would be great, until then, as my story may be considered a bit personal, you can find out a bit about me on my lj.
Thank you for creating and being a part of this community.  I feel like I can breathe.

Intro
Really happy to find this community since wellness is a lifetime goal for me.  Looking forward to read positive posts from people wishing to move forward and live up to their full potential.

Presently what I'm doing for myself:

1. Quitting smoking (day 1)
2. Doing yoga daily
3. Feed myself properly (that means enough)
4. Drink 3 ltr of water per day
5. Daily meditation

When I get those down path I'll make a new list.  For now that's all I ask.  Back to basics for the mind, body and soul.

Critique and feedback: my life plan
This is sort of like a plan for the coming year or few. I'm interested in feedback, particularly if there are things I could do to significantly improve my life that I haven't listed and for advice on the things I have listed to work on improving my life.
As you'll see, the areas are: healthy eating, exercise, housework, budgeting (minor), nurturing relationships, and broadening my horizons.

Mission statement:
[personal]

Main Personal Objectives for the next year:
1. Strive for greater consciousness, esp. in the particular areas of eating, exercise, housework, and budgeting (more generally, allocate time better, be proactive, develop more and in a more planned way)
2. Nurture my relationships (TIPS ON THIS PLEASE!)
3. Broaden my horizons (cultural things such as art and poetry, natural sciences) [tips on this as well!]

=====
GOALS
=====
Daily:
General:
Track all money being spent (item, cost, date)
Implement "Getting Things Done" workflow management system further

Morning:
Wake up earlier (move toward slowly, after catching up on sleep)
Nothing online: focus on proactive, productive work
Regular exercise
Regular study at home and on subway

Day:
At work (do personal errands and studying when possible)
Light reading on subway home (b/c more tired)

Evening:
Organize different areas of house (temporary till house is set-up; moved in recently)
Do regular housework (set aside one evening each week for housework)
Read: light reading (for now, read 1 chapter of GTD book a night)
Relax more
Catch up on sleep (go to bed earlier)

Weekend:
Short term: work on organizing different areas of house more
Study

Weekly to Monthly:
Dinners with meg and with friends (move to weekly dinners with friends)
Cultural events
Nurture relationships: Jackson friends and family (write letters? or emails? and phone calls)

Yearly goals:
Possibly long weekends quarterly with Meg (spend time away from bustle)

===================
Implementation plan
===================
Organize with the "Getting Things Done" system: develop project plans for each goal or group of goals and then define the next, specific step to move toward achieving those goals.
(I use this program by the way: trimpath.com/demos/nextaction_static1/nextaction.htm which is really cool.)

Subplans that I'm still working on:
Healthy eating
Exercise
Study
Housework
Budget [this I'm tracking all my money for 2 months and will then develop a budget]
Getting Things Done system

moving anxiety
i have been agoraphobic for a year now. i'm getting better at some things though. i'm living with my parents right now in the suburbs. i still cant drive, so i found an apartment in the city that is close to a lot of things so i will be able to walk. i was really excited about it at first because i cant stand livving with my parents and want to be on my own. but recently i've been getting nervous that i cant really do this and that when i get down there i will still be too scared to leave the apartment. i havent signed anything yet, but i am going to visit the apartment this evening with my sister. the girl who already lives there knows about my 'problems' but i'm very scared that once she actually meets me and finds out what agoraphobia is like that she wont like me. i'm also scared that even though i'll be so close to so many things i'll be too afraid to walk down the street without having a panic attack.

do you have any suggestions or advice? thanks.

chest pains... ?
Hell. Now I'm getting chest pains. Dizzy too. Seeing floaty spots. Niiiiice.

No matter how many times I go through this, I wish there was some way to tell if it is just anxiety, or a more serious problem. Because not knowing only makes the anxiety worse, and ignoring it isn't an option. If I knew for sure it was just anxiety, I would be far more able to ignore it.

Is there anything, regarding the chest pains and dizzyness that any of you think I should be concerned about?** Any signs that it's more than just your run of the mill anxiety? I try to keep my hypochondriac self in check, but I don't want to dismiss any serious warning signs that might indicate something else.

Could even be heartburn/acid reflux? Doesn't feel like typical heartburn, but I've heard people describe it sometimes as chestpains and trouble breathing. Maybe I'll take a zantac just for the hell of it. Shouldn't hurt, might help.

I'm going to try and go to bed and read, and see if that helps some. Ugh. I'd meditate, but it's too hard to breathe, and too much pain to relax. The reading usually helps, especially if it is just anxiety. Considering the stress levels at work this week, anxiety is almost certainly the culprit. I feel a migrane coming on too, so I'm pretty sure it is just stress/anxiety related.

Since I'm posting this in the community, I thought I'd go ahead and ask... what do YOU do to relieve stress. I usually meditate, mild exercise, read a book, or take a hot shower. I'm trying to avoid crawling under the covers at the first sign of stress and fatigue, so it would be nice to hear what other people's favorite stress relievers are.

**I'm not really asking for medical advice, if it gets too bad I'll see a doctor. I actually even have an appointment on Monday and I'll be asking about it then too. I'm just asking for general opinions or whatever...**

Well, this seems to be a quiet community so far, but it also seems pretty new.

I've had various and sundry troubles since I got EBV (Epstein Barr) as an adult about 4 years ago. Then shortly after that, I had my gallbladder removed. I can do specific symptoms later.

I started Atkins, lost weight (suggested by my doctor to help lower my blood pressure), but I've since fallen off the lo-carb wagon, and its frustrating.

Start posting folks.

Quick post while I'm thinking about it...
Have any of you ever tried to give up refined sugars and/or caffeine?

I'm consuming way too much of both, usually in soda form. I'm also not drinking nearly enough water.

I KNOW it isn't good for me, but I still go for a soda first, before drinking anything else. Strong coffee with sugar in the morning, then soda the rest of the day. Although it settles me at first, I don't like the way it makes me feel over all.

Anyone have any ideas? Going cold turkey just horrifies me, I know just quitting the caffeine will cause migranes, and I'm so not looking forward to that... but I really need to make a change.

Help?

Tired
This exhaustion is driving me crazy. I'm used to being physically drained, but the mental exhaustion is different...worse in so many ways.

I got myself some high protein foods and I just need to remember to eat them first thing in the morning. My biggest problem is that I'm not hungry in the morning, (due to the hypoglycemia) and I end up snacking in the afternoon on high carb crap. Needless to say, that isn't doing much good for my energy levels.

I thought I'd ask...do any of you have any suggestions for high-protein foods?
I'm pretty limited...I'm lactose intolerant (yogurt good, milk bad), don't eat much meat and I'm allergic to nuts (except peanuts, which aren't actually nuts)

I've been trying to eat more soy stuff, but I need new ideas. Aged cheeses, yogurt, tunafish, peanut butter and Boost High Protein shakes have been my major sources of protein. Tuna and peanut butter aren't exactly appetizing for breakfast.

***************

Also, do we want to lock down this community? Seems that a couple people have suggested we lock the posts, which isn't a bad idea. Do I want to moderate or restrict membership in any way? We could do this by invitation only... friends of friends only kind of thing.

Please comment with suggestions.

Hello!
Thanks ladymorgaine for creating this community. :) I think it's a great idea. I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself.

My name is Jessica or Sera (SCA name) and I am getting married in 4 months and 8 days. I want to lose at least 20 pounds by then. I just want to lose this f-ing double chin. LOL Who wants a couple of chins flying around on your wedding day?? :P I also need to quit smoking. I have cut way back so that is good. It's hard to quit when your signifigant other smokes like a chimney. I have started to walk a little more and eat healthier. Baby steps, right??

It's nice to be here! :)

P.S. Are we locking the posts??
