my husband recently introduced me to the guided meditations of Jon Kabat Zinn to help me with the recent onset of panic/anxiety issues....i think it has been helpful and i do the breathing often as well as listen to a guided meditation at least once every day

I am new to the team too. I followed krstalla over. Glad to be here. I make jewelry as a hobby, and hope to start a store someday.

Hi all, I'm new to the team, but not new to Spark People. I'm coming back after a long absence! I'm a registered nurse, licensed massage therapist, and a certified health coach and am excited to read the information on the team and get to know everyone!

Hi All, my name is Lola from Yorkshire, UK. I just discovered SP a few days ago so it's still all new to me. I have been a Reiki Master for about 15 years, also working with chakras, crystals, tarot and am dabbling in mediumship. Looking forward to joining in with the group emoticon

Greetings. I have Master Level Reiki training, but fell out of practice several years ago. I'm hoping that if I hang around with like-minded folks, it'll nudge me back into daily practice.

Otherwise, let's see...live in Central New York (real snow country), 59 years old, widowed, 2 daughters (24 and 26), live alone in a huge old farmhouse with a bunch of cats and dogs, writer and professional gardener, have some weight to lose but my health is excellent.

Anything you want to know, just ask!

Pray to God, but row for shore.

Hello team, my name is Kim from California. I read a book called Journey of Souls by Dr. Michael Newton and it changed the entire way I think about life, the spirit, and my journey. I am trying to learn all that I can and hope to be taught many things by you all. On a personal note, I am working on my master's degree in counseling: marriage, family, child therapy and I am hoping I can find a way to encorporate reiki and metaphysics into my practice. I look forward to meeting you and hopefully forming friendships here.

Hi y'all, my name is Bill and I'm grateful to have found this team. A bit about me...
About 30 years ago I drifted away from the church of my youth (RC) when going to church was cutting into my drinking time. In '94 my oldest son was hit by a car while on his bike and died in ICU 3 days later. This began a yearlong spiral into the deepest, darkest pit imaginable until I had 2 choices - get dead or get sober and I didn't want to get dead.
I entered treatment for alcoholism and 3 weeks in knew it was time to return to to the God of my understanding. I joined my family at the Episcopal church my wife had returned to when I quit going. The gospel that day was 'the Prodigal Son' and the sermon was on Grace. My wife and I were asked to bring up the offertory gifts and it was walking up that I offered myself and turned my life and will over to His care.
I felt a love,peace and warmth flow over me, felt arms on my shoulders and heard a voice saying 'Welcome home, son'. Inwardly I wept.
I've been active in this church and in a 12-Step Recovery Ministry ever since.
3 years ago I was introduced to Reiki and was attuned to Level I. I am now at Master level, working toward Teacher cert. My Reiki training & practice have improved my meditation, strengthened my recovery and church life - all are so entwined there is no separating them now. A dear friend has written a book I wholly agree with - 'The Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Reiki - One Source, One Spirit'.
Today, after walking this path 60+ years I am truly grateful to be who I am, where I am :)
Thank you all for a beautiful reminder of all that is good today!
p.s. - sorry for being so long winded ;)

Hello!
I have been a member of SP for 8 yrs now. What brought me to this group is last year I went to a Mind, Body & Spirit expo and was intrigued. I have always been curious with metaphysics and lately have been interested in learning to become a reiki. My initial interest was chakras (still like to learn about that) and now reiki. I believe I have an untapped talent and looking to explore. So hello! emoticon

Hello everyone!
I am so happy I found this team! Really looking forward to meeting my fellow teammates!
A couple years ago I used to practice meditation at least a few times a week. Over the past couple years I have lost my focus, my grounding and general sense of self. I have become very disconnected with myself and my life and am in serious need of getting things back together!
I am also working on decluttering my home and getting rid of anything that is unnecessary or has to place! I have too much clutter just sitting around my home taking up space and in general making me unhappy and stressed.
I look forward to getting to know everyone!
Cheers!

Life's so uncertain, eat dessert first!

Hello. I answer to immarra or Tina Marie (the name my parents gave me). I am a singer/songwriter and I also help out some indie filmmaker friends by doing a little acting. Music is my passion tho... I have struggled with weight and stress issues all my life and both are hereditary in my blood line. My mother passed away a few years ago after a long struggle with her health and I decided I needed to do something or end up like her. I love my mother, don't misunderstand... but I don't want to follow in her footsteps to the grave. So, I did some soul searching and was lead to reiki and holistic therapies. I became a reiki master/teacher and am currently studying other holistic modalities through an online course. I still struggle with meditation but I want to dedicate myself to a daily practice of reiki, meditation and yoga... but change takes time and I'm working on those changes. I look forward to finding some inspiration and insight.

Hello. I've tried SparkPeople in the past, but was not as dedicated as I should have been. I'm trying again and making an effort to be part of the community for the encouragement and support. This team interests me because my goals for this year include getting my strength back, living healthy to prevent disease, and nurturing my spiritual self.

Hello! My name is Jessica and I joined Spark People (SP) almost three weeks ago. I have been extremely satisfied with my SP experience so far! I love that there is such a helpful and positive environment where people can get help with not only losing weight, but also starting and maintain a healthy lifestyle. For both their body and their minds! I came across the Mend Your Mind/Body Connection page today and loved the whole idea of this group! I believe that a positive mind is a healthy mind, and I would love to be a part of this team!

I have been absent, but I back and ready for the challenge. I really need to reconnect with myself, and continue to focus on my self-acceptance, as well as happiness. I have strayed away from this path too many times. I really need to commit to this life style change wholeheartedly. One Love emoticon

Hello from Wisconsin, land of cheese and other fattening foods. I have just started meditation and I am delighted to find this team. I already have fallen in love with some of the posts and the suggestions from other team members. I hope that I can contribute to the team in the near future but for now I will try to learn as much as I can from all of you.
Thanks

I just started using Spark People last week. My daughter joined and has enjoyed it and I thought it would be fun. I have been trying to practice Mindfulness. I also do Tai Chi. I like swimming, pilates and walking.

Feel free to visit my spark page. to see more about me.

I'm 50 plus and have a lot of weight to lose.

I'm planning to take every day as Day 1.

I have gotten overwhelmed and frustrated by trying to lose weight. I have everything I need to lose weight and I know everything to do. I just need to do it.

I like the idea of the spark. That's what I need. I need a spark to spur me on.
