I am now a Spiritual Survey Whore

So what's up my little turtle doves ? Shoesies has done a spiritual survey and has begged us all to do it, and I just couldn't resist. I've always been a survey whore, but now it's just a little more spiritual. Namaste !

Feel free to answer these questions. I am too lazy to play tag. Enjoy !

1.) We all dance with the seven sins from time to time. Which of the seven sins do you dance with most frequently, and why? They are wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.


Well at the moment I am dancing a duo with sloth and gluttony. Mainly gluttony though. Bad combo if you ask me. I need a better sin to tango with. Lust would be a better option. It wouldn't give me a fatter ass.


2. If you could live for a week in the body of someone famous, who would it be? You would still be you, but you could access their need to know info as you needed to know it. Of course, the kicker is that they would live in your body and have the same privileges.

I would live in Adriana Lima's body for sure (she's my fave Victoria's Secret model). Don't know who she is ? Google her. She doesn't disappoint !




3. Do you believe that angels walk among us? That there are true psychics, mediums, or anyone who is more connected to God than the average person?

Absolutely, just as much as I believe that the the devil and his helpers are among us. I do believe in true psychics, but I don't think there are as many out there as the media portrays. I think true psychics are a rare find. And only the information you are meant to know will be correct information you will be given by the
"psychic" or "medium". For example, I have visited a few "readers" and while they have predicted some things correctly, no one could seem to correctly predict when I would get a better job or meet someone special. I believe those are things I am not supposed to know and I am okay with that. I did get hired this year by a firm I am happy with, and it came completely out of left field. Very unexpected and not in my reading. The dates I was given  by the "medium" that I would find a job were wrong. I got turned down for the positions in the time frame I was told I would find a job and found something else on my own.

Also, I don't think anyone is more connected to God. I think we all have the same access, it's just a matter of connecting with ourselves to tap into that power.



4) Have you ever dreamt about a future event that happened, a past event that happened when you were but a very young child, or anything that was just so real, but otherworldly, that you felt its truth in your soul? If so, I'm listening.

First of all, I don't remember my dreams as a child except that most of them were nightmares. Luckily most of the dreams I have aren't literal, rather symbolic. In my dreams almost all of my family has died (different members at different times of course) and they were so real I cried when I woke up. Or I am about to jump off a building.

But the one dream the I will never forget was when I went skydiving and could vividly experience the fall. I could clearly see the ground get closer and right before landing I woke up. That was cool !



5) Do you feel like you have a gift that you aren't using? It could be for anything. Design, writing, art, photography, decoration. The list is endless.

All the time. I wonder if I am letting talents go to waste. I love photography, writing and dance. I have a photo blog, I have this blog, and I give belly dance performances a couple of times a year.

 I do all three, but I have not seriously pursued any of them other than as hobbies.



6) Is there someone that you are unwilling to forgive? Is it weighing on your heart? Eating you up on the inside? This is a yes or no. If it is yes, I hope you make the choice today to want to forgive and then let it go. Throw out your desire into the universe.

No, I think I am able to forgive eneryone. I took the weight off my heart last year and resolved what was eating me up inside. I may not have forgotten, but I have forgiven. Life is really too short, I don't want anger to consume me and regret it on my deathbed.



7) If we were able to take away or add one element into the heart of each and every man, which one would be the one that would make the most difference in making this world a better place to live?


Simply accepting each other. I think it really starts there.


Bonus Questions !


1. What item of yours has the most sentimental value, and why?


My Oma's necklace and ring set I inherited. It is smoky topaz (topaz is my birth stone) and it was her prized jewels. My grandpa saved up to buy her that set and they were the loves of each other's lives. It was given to me because Oma has always wanted me to find true love.


2. What is the best compliment you've ever received?
 
I have received a lot of great compliments, but the best one was when I volunteered (we helped get UVisas for abused undocumented women) and she told me that I am a beautiful person inside and out in Spanish. I always love receiving compliments in foreign languages.
 
But other compliments I have always cherished were people complimenting me on my dance moves. When women my age compliment me on the way I move it really makes my day.

Topaz...I think we're both Scorpios, right?

Sie haben schöne Augen.

1. LUST, not that I think it's a sin. But of the things listed, that's the one that stands out.

2. The president or the United States. I'd like to know what the hell is really going on. You know, the real truth.

3. No. I think it's all just silly.

4. The only dream that ever really bothered me was the one I had where an ex was working as a high dollar hooker. What really bothered me was she wouldn't se me - even when I paid her... WTF???

5. I duno about a gift. But, I am good with kids (we are on the same mental wavelength, after all?). I feel like I should do more with them.

6. Yes. I can't forgive some things. Rather, I won't forgive.
Forgiveness is over-rated. I do not think it is necessary just for forgiveness sake. If they earn it, forgive them. If not, fuck 'em.

7. I like yur answer here. acceptance of others would make the world a better place.


I know, my answers are not too spiritual. But neither am I.

Danielle said...

I like this one. I love your answers. I am not spiritual, so I won't be answering, but I am definitely thinking!

Bev said...

Very cool answers. I agree so much about the psychics, etc. - you summed up my own thoughts perfectly!

Scarlet Ily said...

Eres una bailadora fabulosa. (How's that for a foreign compliment? Short and sweet.) :)

I believe what you believe about psychics and God and I also think Adriana Lima's body is perfect. I don't know if I'd want it but she is a very attractive woman.

I had forgotten about your photography blog. I'll have to pop in again soon!

H said...

I like surveys and I like your answers, you read like such an interesting woman.

Red Shoes said...

Scorpios? You and Jessica are Scorpios?? Hmmm... you know what they say about Scorpios, don't you? ;o)

Thank you for answering these, Senorita... I always enjoy your take on things...

What's happening with me? Nothing, yet everything... Life is good!

I trust it's the same with you!!!
