Q&A: Does anyone else fly in their dreams?

Question by : Does anyone else fly in their dreams?
Every time I go to sleep, I dream quite vividly that I have the ability to fly. My dreams are never recurring and they vary as far as location within my dream, people present and what exactly might occur.

How high can you fly and for how long have you dreamed that you could? Are the dreams negative in nature or positive? Have you ever experienced what one may consider a “prophetic dream?”

Best answer:

Answer by Briar Rose
I fly in my dreams. I fly above the ocean and pass through the mountains. The color was like in a fairyland. i thought I was gonna fall in the water but luckily, I fly higher and higher. I take it as a positive omen. Prophetic dream? I don’t think so.

Atheists, Christians, Muslims and Others: How do we all prevent new religious wars & religious persecutions?

Question by Andy F: Atheists, Christians, Muslims and Others: How do we all prevent new religious wars & religious persecutions?
Obviously, many of the people contributing questions and answers to YA on “Religion & Spirituality” have many disagreements about religion, ethics, the existence or non-existence of God, and several other subjects.

OK, so we have these disagreements, and some of us feel passionately about them.

But given that this is the reality today, how do we avoid taking the next step towards Hell on Earth, and violently fighting each other over religion and/or the negation of religion?

After all, one of the beauties of Yahoo Answers is that it gives each of us the chance to express our own religious beliefs, whatever they are, and to listen to other people expressing their beliefs.

It gives each of us the chance to argue against all of the others, if we feel that is right, and in some cases YA may give some of us the chance to be “converted” by the words of others.

Yet in many societies around the world, at many different times in history, people fought and killed each other over the kinds of religious disagreements that we can peacefully explore on Yahoo. Holy wars & Crusades & Jihads were fought against unbelievers. Violent revolutions occurred in the name of one faith or another.

And apparently saintly and harmless individuals turned from leading apparently blameless lives to the hunting down of “heretics,” with the result that innocent people were tortured & killed for disagreeing with their kings, caliphs, bishops or neighbors about the nature of God.

How do all of us who love to debate and tease each other here in the R&S section make sure that those violent & intolerant & bloody days of religious persecution never come again?

Or let’s say “most of us” here in R&S, since probably a few of us are religious True Believers who do like the notion of violent Holy Wars.

How do MOST of us in here find ways to keep speaking up for what we think is the “truth” — whatever that may be, and no matter who disagrees with it — without running the risk that we will turn a relatively tolerant society like the USA into a new scene of religious intolerance & bloodshed, such as Lebanon, Northern Ireland, Iraq or, say, northern Nigeria or Gujurat under the dominion of rival religious mobs?
A an added note of clarifying: I really would like to ask people about how to AVOID religious wars (and anti-religous wars) and persecutions.

I didn’t really mean to ask whether we should launch a war against a particular religion to “end religious war”, which to me seems an oxymoron.

Best answer:

Answer by I’m on a mission from God
There will always be people who believe that their god wants them to kill the nonbelievers. There is nothing we can do to prevent this without taking away human rights.

I’m persecuted every other day. That doesn’t mean that I need to back down or get up in arms about it. I will stand up for what I think is right, and I will not be violent. That’s the only thing I can do about it.

Shiitake, Portabella Mushrooms Speak: We Want to Give Something to the Spirit.

Perkins, Oklahoma (PRWEB) October 11, 2011

Mushrooms are more than food, according to Dr. Sandra Williams, shiitake mushroom log kit designer and owner of Lost Creek Mushroom Farm. Like many of Natures creations, they bring gifts beyond being fuel for our bodies. Mushrooms, cultivated and wild, are revealing more benefits than we ever dreamed of, including effects on emotions, creativity, self-expression, and general well being.

How does Williams know what gifts the mushrooms have to offer? They tell her. At first they spoke through an intuitive counselor, Eileen Hetherington. They talked about their abilities for increasing human happiness, healing illnesses, stimulating creativity, balancing personalities, and expanding spiritual awareness.

Williams has been learning to communicate with mushrooms herself, just as George Washington Carver reported learning directly from peanuts, Henry David Thoreau talked with trees, and Luther Burbank received information from plants. One of her first direct experiences with mushrooms happened in the woods of northern California.

I put my hand on an artists conk mushroom growing on a hollow tree trunk, she said. My body tingled, my lips vibrated and felt swollen. Then I was inside the mushroom, inside the tree, feeling what the mushroom felt.”

It was so happy to be itself; pleased and thankful to be connected to the tree and that the tree was connected to the ground, and that the roots went deep into the earth.

Just before the holiday push for Lost Creek Mushroom Farm Shiitake Log Kits, the mushroom entrepreneur couldnt sleep, anxious about the upcoming sales season. I went out for a walk about 4:30 am. I felt that feeling again but now it was about me. I was so happy to be myself, just as I was, and I was deeply grateful. This was a gift of self-perception from the artists conk mushroom.

Nutritional and Health Benefits of Shiitake and Portabella Mushrooms

The nutritional benefits of edible species have been known to science for a long time, as have many of their medicinal properties.

Shiitake (Lentinus edodes) is the second-most popular mushroom worldwide. Shiitakes are high in protein, low in fat, and contain compounds that strengthen and stimulate the immune system, lower cholesterol, regulate blood pressure, and kill viruses and tumors. Ive heard that in Japan, which has the highest overall cancer cure-rate, Williams said, shiitake-reishi mushroom extracts are the first line of treatment against cancer.

The portabella (Agaricus brunnescens, including crimini and baby bella) was created from the button mushroom and has developed its own forms and flavors. It provides protein, is low in fat and has no cholesterol. According to Dr. Williams, Portabellas say they can direct the activities of the spleen and bone marrow so that the proper and correct shape and formation and amount of human blood cells may be produced.”

We need research to investigate the properties described by these mushrooms, Williams said. One mushroom claims it heals corrosion in the heart lining. There is much of value to be learned.

Spiritual and Emotional Healing Gifts of Shiitakes and Portabellas

“The spiritual and emotional healing gifts, known to our ancestors, are being rediscovered now as the mushrooms are communicating. They want us to know their gifts and use them,” Williams adds.” After more than a year of conversations with mushrooms, I am convinced we should listen and respect their information.”

The shiitake brings uniqueness, joyful expression and a way of dwelling in joy. We particularly relieve the oppression of old griefs upon the heart and spirit.

The portabella said, We fortify in the human the sense of well being and rightness on their path. To the human spirit we offer a grounding force which aligns the human with the sense of wholeness

We are Medicine for the Soul, the mushrooms told Williams on their first visit with her. We are trying to get people to hear us. We are tired of just being bought because we taste good. Please, please tell people that we have much more to give.

Lost Creek Mushroom Farm produces shiitake mushroom log kits available at http://www.shiitakemushroomlog.com; by phone at 1-800-792-0053; and mail order, PO Box 520, Perkins, OK 74059. Request a free brochure. 10% of Lost Creek Mushroom Farm sales are donated to Mushrooms in Ghana Project.
