  • Has anyone used frozen herbs?

    by mrmole

    Question by Because: Has anyone used frozen herbs?
    I was in the grocery store & saw what I am hoping is a marvelous little invention- “fresh frozen diced herbs”. They are by “White Toque” and come in a little shaker box. I purchased the shallots, chives & basil. It says to use the same amount as fresh herbs. I freeze just about everything, but I have to confess that this idea never occurred to me. Before I make my favorite dishes, does anyone have any experience with these? Many thanks!
    I’m not so much concerned about flavor as I am about texture. Will it matter in things that are not cooked?

    Meditators have been studied using EEG equipment. The simple act of closing the eyes and clearing the mind produces an immediate decrease in brainwave activity. In the initial stages, brainwave activity remains around 13 to 14 Hz. With practice, deeper meditative states can be achieved. Experienced Meditators can achieve brainwave patterns closer to 8 Hz. Those that have practiced meditation for many years can achieve even deeper brainwave states. Meditation is a discipline that must be understood in order to be effective. There is much controversy in the West over the desired ‘result’ of meditation. From a technical perspective, no specific result of meditation is desired. In the meditative state, all experience is recognized, acknowledged and the attention is once again returned to the initially chosen focus of attention. Once an experience — any experience other than the initially chosen focus of attention becomes the focus and the experience, the individual is no longer in a state of meditation. A state of transpersonal awareness may take place at that time.

    I would not recommend unconventional medicines for your condition. My wife has Hemochromotosis also, and has had wonderful results with a medicine called X-Jade. If you can get monthly blood withdrawals, that is another way to remove the iron from your blood.

  • Does anyone else here think Sylvia Browne is “misguided”?

    Question by Lone Ranja™: Does anyone else here think Sylvia Browne is “misguided”?
    I think her “spirit guide” is not what it makes itself out to be.
    I Am Very much A Believer In The “Paranormal”. I Have Studied These Topics Just About My Entire Life….everything from ufo’s to evp’s. BUT, I Also Strongly Believe In God, Jesus, The Bible,etc. Sylvia Has Very Good Intentions, But Her “Guide” Does Not.
    Just Something To Keep In Mind…….”Evil Does EVERYTHING In It’s Power To Mirror Good”.
    So, Therefore, One Must Assume That A Person Endowed With An Evil Gift Has The Ability To Do MANY Good Deeds.

    I would tend to agree with you, but I will also openly admit that I have problems with what I perceive to be her “Christian-centric” point of view.

  • Is there anyone out there who knows anything about animal totems or spirit guides?

    Question by Will Clement: Is there anyone out there who knows anything about animal totems or spirit guides?
    (Trollers, fundamentalists, atheists and Jesus freaks, though I value your opinions I neither want nor need them at the present time… so shoo!)

    I have a Red Fox totem who always appears to me whenever I go into a state of meditation, but he acts strange. I read somewhere that your animal totem should always be willing to get close to and I have read stories of people who commonly play with their totems, but he always keeps his distance. Also, when he speaks to me, its always hard to understand and whatever I can understand is always very cryptic. I was wondering, is this normal behavior for fox totems, or is it that I haven’t fully accepted his presence and his behavior is a result of this? I also was wondering if anyone with fox totems could tell me a little bit about how their totems behave so I have something to compare my totem to.

    Also, something… confusing happened a couple of days ago during one of my meditations.
    It was after my Fox totem walked away and left me simply lying in the middle of a small forest clearing enjoying my meditation. Suddenly, my meditation became very vivid and a voice nearby laughed and said “enjoying ourselves are we?”
    I looked up and sitting right beside me was a Red Fox, but it wasn’t my animal totem. This one was a vixen. I said yes, and then asked who she was since she obviously wasn’t my totem. She replied, “oh, nice to meet you! I’m your spirit guide!” (*note* I am aware of the difference between animal totems and spirit guides)

    This, of course, raises quite a few questions. Is it possible for a person to have a spirit guide that is the same animal as your totem? If so, what does that indicate about a person?

    Also, when I asked her how long she would be with me for, she said that she would be with me for my entire life, which spirit guides don’t do. Spirit guides come and go whenever the lesson that they wish to teach you has been learned or needs to be learned. Totems, on the other hand, stay with a person for their entire lives. Could she be another animal totem of mine? I read somewhere that people usually have two totems, one that represents their male side and another that represents their female side. However, if she represents my female side, how could I have two totems that are both the same animal? Is it even possible? Also, what does it mean? Thoughts anyone?
    Thank you Neanie, your answer was very helpful…
    but the spirit guide that appeared in front of me wasn’t a lady, it was another Red Fox. During a meditation I had today, I was talking with both my totem and my spirit guide(second totem?) at the same time, so she can’t be Shinoa can’t be posing as a vixen. (Also, today I learned that her name was Nikita… just in case anyone was curious)

    It seems like the fox and the woman kinda inter connect. I have a book about animal totems and have looked it up out of curiosity. The key notes of the fox are feminine magic of camouflage, shape shifting and invisibility. Though I don’t know much about what you have written it seems to me that your best bet would be exploring what the fox means and what it represents to you. You may also want to investigate that symbol because it seems like it is connected to the other things you are experiencing.
    The book I have is called “Animal Speak The Spiritual Powers of Creatures Great and Small” by Ted Andrews. It is an excellent book and goes into detail about different animals and what they represent to cultures throughout the world. I highly recommend it and in my opinion, may be a good place to start.
    As for the lady who you are asking about being the spirit guide that is the same as the animal totem, it would seem to me if one of the characteristics of the fox is shape shifting, then it is not entirely impossible that this lady was the fox visiting you in another form. This explanation would make the most sense to me.
    I myself do not have the fox totem. I have limited experience with the fox and do not currently know anyone at this time with that totem. I think your best bet would be starting with the book I recommended as well as study the fox, fox behaviors and do research into it. Hope that helps

    How do tables get turned when a relationship sours? I used to think I had good karma in a relationship, but then my karma soured after some hardship (perhaps caused by me unintentionally)…

    How do I get good Karma again?
