7 little known facts about me

Bobby has tagged me to reveal 7 little known facts about me. So here it goes. I am a pretty weird lady (I'm sure you know that already)...

1. When I was 18, I fell madly in love with a beautiful and cold young man. He made me feel like I was a number on a list and that my only interest was my virginity. I developped heart problems and had to take digitalin. These problems healed with time. That guy is living in India now.

2. I went to India this year after reading Sarah Macdonald's hilarious "Holy Cow", and started losing my hair after that visit - just like her.

3. During my first night home after that visit I had the weirdest dream. I was alone in a forest surrounded by strange spirits or monsters. They told me to stay with them, I said I couldn't because I had to take care of my children. They said OK, come back later. I woke up terrified, not knowing where I was.

4. I had a spontaneous out of body experience when I was around 13, just walking in the college playground after lunch. I don't remember what was on the menu that day, but I do remember the smell of the birch trees. That experience really scared me, I waited many years to talk about it.

5. I did a few Holotropic Breathwork sessions. This changed the idea I had of myself, life, mental health and all that. It's a pretty violent therapy but it helped me cure from whatever problem I had - post traumatic stress, chronic depression (?) ... I still don't know but I feel better.

6. While in India, I came face to face with some of the big lies I had been telling myself. I am still trying to digest that.

7. At the moment, I have very little energy. I think I know why but I can't tell with words. Probably more on that in future beaded pages ? ;o)

I don't know..you might be a little weird, but fun! Everyone is a little weird. I have had spiritual experiences, bad dreams, I don't like to shake peoples hand, or have anyone use my pen. And a hundred other things I could tell you. So, I liked your ten things and I like your Journal Pages.

Thanks Bobby. You got me thinking :o)

Thank you Carol, I don't mind being weird and fun. I believe you're right ; many many people live unusual things, and after all maybe they're not even unusual :o)

I don't find you weird...but sometimes a bit secretive??? I hope you manage to express what blocks your energy.

Hello Helene. So nice to meet you! Thanks for your comments on my art doll site. It was so nice to read your 7 things about you. You demonstrate and ability to reveal deep things about yourself in a very creative way. Thanks for sharing about your dreams. That is one of my passions. I am exploring Hecate at the moment. She came in one of my dreams this week to lay on top of all of the dead souls to bring them back to life. Quite fascinating...I am sure that you will enjoy Michele Cassou. I studied with her for many years when I lived in California. I see no possibility of separating the art process from daily life. If you surrender to it, it all becomes a glorious and revealing dance and flow! Camilla

Camilla, thank for your kind comment. Dreams are very important to me too.

Renu, this book is written by an Australian writer, so it's the view of a foreigner on India. However it was recommended to me by an Indian girl. I'm sure you'll enjoy it ! Thank you for your good wishes.

Helene, very interesting facts! I find you interesting too, not especially weird! I pay attention to my dreams at all times and think they are very important in the creative life.

I love that you know that how you are feeling does not have words yet but the feelings will, most likely, come through in your beading...I added your site to my favorites today...

ACey said...

oh I loved that book, Holy Cow. Was very attracted to the cover it and found the contents even more enjoyable.

Hélène H said...

Thanks to all.

I still have little energy so I'm not saying much, but I really appreciate your comfort !

Low energy ?
i've noticed since many many years that November is not a good month at all: eberybody around me is exhausted, and so i feel too.
December tends to be better because changes are in the air, the new year is comin.
So, just wait :)

Merci 006, tu es un vrai ami.
