I’m SURE more... MANY more FEELINGS will envelop my body when i get “home” to my BELOVED HEAVEN..... But for my session of Empathy Poker that is all that was ALIVE IN ME.....
The NEEDS I was offered was MANY.... The ones I chose were.....
MOURNING ( I imagine this will be my first few weeks home)
ACCEPTANCE (For the REALITY of what is)
COMPASSION & EMPATHY (This I will be giving to MYSELF on a moment to moment basis I’m sure.)
SHARED REALITY (this was the MOST fun... Jesster (the clown that she is..... was holding this NEED and not offering it up to me...... She said, “I’m helping you out here... your going to be living in the wop wops, your going to be ALONE.. there is NOT going to be anyone for you out there”... Jean said, “Give it to her!!!” HYSTERICALLY FUNNY.. SWEET Jester.... trying to PROTECT me...... A Shared Reality does not have to come from my long time life partner/BELOVED.... As much as I hope some day it will.... Shared Reality can happen between any one..... it just has to be someone who loves and cares enough to want to attempt to get into my SKIN, my shoes, someone willing to LISTEN and REFLECT back what it is I am going through......I hope to be a good enough FRIEND to have a SHARED REALITY with others.... it is one of the MOST IMPORTANT NEEDS for me.. even if it is only a SHARED REALITY with my CAT... It will be Loving, connecting, being PRESENT for each other.....)
AFFECTION (could be hugs with friends, snuggles with my CAT, love I have to give children....and YES... I hope someday with my BELOVED)
NURTURANCE (I will have HOURS AND HOURS of hot bubble baths, I hope to get many hours of massage, I will take care of myself by making time to exercise, get plenty of sleep.....)
FRIENDSHIP (YEAAAAAAAAAA, CANT wait to be with my dear nutty NZ friends!!!!)
HELP & SUPPORT &PARTICIPATION (This is going to happen with George coming the month of March to help build the stage for the out door amphitheater. And the Many friends and wwoofers that are going to be coming)
INTIMACY (ALL AROUND LONG TERM GOALS I HOPE TO ALWAYS HAVE MEET, by MESELF, WITH MYSELF, FOR MYSELF and YES someday with my BELOVED)
TRUST (As to my decision long term to stay, go, or ????)
