Lost: Body< Mind and Spirit...reward for fast return....

I decided to go to the Body, Mind and Spirit Expo in Melbourne yesterday.

I had seen the adds on the T.V and thought I could do with all three things.....

A new body would be nice....

I lost mine about 5 years ago with child number 3.......

A new mind would be great also.......

again, mine was lost with child number 3, about 5 years ago........

And spirit.......well.....well I could do with some spirit renewal......

Certainly in need of a boost in that department.........

So off we went , my 19 year old daughter and myself....

.......on the train to Melbourne with high hopes of a positive outcome!


Seems we got there a bit late tho.........

They had sold out of  lots of things.....

...and my hopes of bringing  home a new mind, body and spirit were dashed....

There were NO  quirky fun loving, sized 12, Buddhists left.....

So, I had to return home with the same with  foggy brained, sized 14, grumpy assed shell that I arrived with..

Next year.....I will catch the earlier train!


Despite my disappointment.....I decided to participate in all that was on offer....

And there were lots of things on offer!

Samples everywhere you turned!

And sample.....(and re-sample) we did!!

Trying to find the Goddess within

We tried some delicious tea drink that was supposed to waken the Goddess inside........

While the drink itself was yummy.....

Seems like my Goddess inside suffers from a touch of Narcolepsy.....

She's not awake yet.......maybe it's a 48hour thing? ...will keep you posted on any emerging Goddess....


 
Dr.Detox

We took a foot detox treatment.......

Where soaking your feet in this machine pulls out toxins and turns the water a horrid murky colour.....

It was a disgusting, stomach churning thing to watch....but....

A little like a train wreck that you can't tear you eyes away from.......

There was lots of comparing colours and toxins between the foot soakers......

Who had the most toxins?....Whose colour was darker?....more disgusting?

It was very gross....in a fascinating kinda way.......

...although, the lady sitting beside me had water thick and dark with toxins...

I may never eat a curry again.........


Yummy Yummy Yummy!....oh and the product was good too.....




There were lots of food samples to be had........

Things you would probably never dream of trying....or buying......

But...we were here to participate....so we tried everything!

Even the nut and seed thingy mixed with yogurt and milk and god knows what else......

Shiatsu massage...

There was every form of massage to be had.......

In full view of about 50 thousand eyes.........

It didn't seem like it could really be that therapeutic or relaxing.....

But people were lined up everywhere.......

Waiting for their turn.......



They waited for massages.......they waited for psychic readings....they waited for free samples......

...they waited for key speakers....they waited for seminars.......they waited in long lines for food.......

...They waited in longer lines for the bathroom.......



And they spent, spent spent!........



People were handing money over left right and center..........

What are we all looking for?



And why do we think we can get it instantly if we pay someone a heap of money....

Are we lazy?......Are we looking for a quick fix?....Are we really so clueless?


Some people are so gullible ..

.....if told to put a joss stick up their bum and run around the expo, naked....and backwards, 3 times....

they would do it.....

and pay money to do it!

Blissed out on the free trial massage chair...OMG, it was amazing!...but I got kicked of when it became apparent that I wasn't going to buy one....hehehe


All in all....it was a great day....we sampled heaps of things....

Tried lots of new, exciting and differently weird  things.......

And had a lot of fun spending time with my daughter.....(apart from the frantic run to the train station!!)


So.....I didn't come back fully enlightened......in a smaller body.....with a wonderful zenned out aura.......

.....But next year, as I said, I will catch the earlier train and hopefully get in line earlier!!

I will keep you all posted on the whole " Emerging Goddess" thing......

She should be here any minute now.........

Love
Blongs. xx

The day I snapped.......and shot my family!

The day had started much the same as the day before......

It was hot.......real hot.....

..it was about the 4th day in a row where the temperature had climbed over 36 degrees and I was really feeling the stress and lethargy that heat tends to bring with it.......

....I was done.....

...bone tired.....

...the build up to Christmas day was stressful.......and busy........

... it was me who had to do all the Xmas preperations.....

...all the shopping.....

....all the gift buying....

...all the wrapping....

...all the cooking.....

....all that false happiness....blah!...

....boxing day arrived with more heat and lots of mess!...

...lots of empty boxes......lots of new gifts left all over the floor....left over wrapping paper all over the floor...messing with my head space and my OCD ness........

...AND....the worst thing?.....

.....a child.... "coming down" after eating the  crap, sugar filled stocking of lollies and other nasties, given "thoughtfully" by loving relations.....whinging and crying......

....and my man....standing there with the fridge door open....looking at the copious amount of left over chicken....pork....salads and ham...(oh god, that ham!)....and asking..."what is there to eat"?.........

...something snapped.....

...I heard it go......

....What did I do?.....what would you do?

.....I walked outside where my partner and 2 children now had gone.....


....almost trance like.....

...I picked up the gun......

...I knew it was loaded ....... 

.....I could feel the weight of it......

....I raised it up  and felt the coolness  of the barrel on my shoulder....

....it felt good.....

....it felt right....

...My partner looked around at me......

...I hesitated.....

...could I do this?...did I really want to do this?...had I thought it through?.....what would be the consequences? ......


....just as i started to lower the gun, my partner looked across at me.....


...the look said it all....

..."you don't have the guts"...

...."I dare you"...he said.... 

....so....


....I raised the gun back.....


....and I pulled the trigger!....

....and it FELT GOOD!...

...as if all my pent up anger and frustration....all my tiredness and stress was released through my trigger finger and vanished into thin air......

....for a brief moment I felt free......


...I watched as a look of surprise flicked across his face......


...then he smiled.....


....water dripped down his face and into his eyes.....


....he raised his water pistol to fire back at me.....


...and it was on......


...the great 3 day family water fight that will go down in history as the greatest water battle of all time!......


.....no-one was exempt....

....not even the baby.....


....as we ran screaming and laughing around the back yard in our underwear (or naked in the case of the kids).....


....I remember thinking ....

....."people pay for family therapy?"....


.......I honestly have to say that this was the best fun we had all had together in the longest time......


.......we have now brought some bigger and better water pistols in preparation for the next spat of extreme hot weather......

...BRING IT ON!!!!!....
