How do I give a guy “tips” in bed?

Question by Teganoid: How do I give a guy “tips” in bed?
I’m not in a relationship with this guy, but I have never been with a guy younger than me. We are just having fun, but I wanted to know if there is a playful way that I can say “I would love to teach you a few things. ;)” without it sounding like “You’re bad in bed, and I would like to fix that.” *sigh* I’ve already had 2 guys say that’s impossible, but is 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.

Q&A: Can you give an interpretation of the Edgar Allen Poe poem “Dreams” (a copy of the poem is here in ‘details’)?

Question by silverclaw_firefly: Can you give an interpretation of the Edgar Allen Poe poem “Dreams” (a copy of the poem is here in ‘details’)?
Oh! that my young life were a lasting dream!

My spirit not awak’ning till the beam
Of an Eternity should bring the morrow.
Yes! tho’ that long dream were of hopeless sorrow,
‘T were better than the cold reality
Of waking life, to him whose heart must be,
And hath been still, upon the lovely earth,
A chaos of deep passion, from his birth.
But should it be – that dream eternally
Continuing – as dreams have been to me
In my young boyhood – should it thus be giv’n,
‘T were folly still to hope for higher Heav’n.
For I have revell’d, when the sun was bright
I’ the summer sky, in dreams of living light
And loveliness, – have left my very heart
In climes of mine imagining, apart
From mine own home, with beings that have been
Of mine own thought – what more could I have seen?
‘T was once – and only once – and the wild hour
From my remembrance shall not pass – some pow’r
Or spell had bound me – ‘t was the chilly wind
Cam o’er me in the night, and left behind
Its image on

There can be many interpretations of this.
My own interpretation is a longing for unrealised dreams of a good and true world, such as the one we dream of as a child. A longing for that innocence before wisdom of age shatters that innocence and it’s dreams. It is also a poem of longing and lost hope for what one has once dreamed. Desires unrealised. He has deep passions in life and yet life has disappointed him. His passions however consume him still. He can also be imagined to be resigned perhaps to the darkness which has shut out the light of his hopes and dreams, describing the dark as a physical presence enveloping him, branding him so to speak.
