My spirit.

Recommended Posts

Guest lis8290

I seem to have no specific religion. However i was raised a methodist.In my teens i became a hindu as defined by my practice of vedic meditation.This meditation practice continued to this day with long breaks in between practice at times of my life. Today i practice my mediation twice daily to my joy and pleasure.I have little faith in a personal godhead but i do know that the universe is alive and full of inteligence.This inteligence i have faith in and often feel its universal presence around me and inside me.I could identify as two spirit but tend to avoid definations or catagories.I am human and this good enough for me. I beleive in the goodness of most people however i do beleive that there are a small percentage of humanity that is evil.I aviod these people like a plague.Evil dose exist in humanity and the spirit world however i beleive it is far outweighed by universal compassion goodness and kindness.The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.(Albert Einstein)

In some ways Lis, you are hitting the norm as far as spirituality for TG's goes. I approach my spiritual life from a number of angles and I find no conflict in them in spite of what "pure practitioners" of those ways try to tell me or get me to believe. Who knows but that we TG folk are different in more good ways than anyone else can take into their thoughts.

Thank you for your response.

Many years ago I was taught vedic meditation by a man who I conciser a master at the art.

I practiced for many years at a time and did not practice for years at a time. I was taught in the 1990.I have actually forgotten what year it was so long ago.1991 I think. It has been so long ago I have lost track of events and time lines.

Why I did not practice what I knew was good for me and chose a life of self hate is still today somewhat of a mystery to me.

However today I practice twice a day what I was taught to be in my best interests. As stated I first learn vedic meditation in1991 I think and was instructed by a man who was deeply involved in the TM organization. This man spent many hours with me explaining the vedic mythology and helping me understand the truths that lay at the foundation of what we call reality.

I never understood the TM organization particularly in regards to the escalation of fees which eventually became unmanageable and beyond the reach of allot of people.

My teacher eventually left the TM organization and now lectures and teaches independently.

He is a master of vedic science and a unique individual. The gift he gave me endures today and my liking and appreciation of this man continues.

Vedic mythology is rich and I believe contains all the possibilities of human existence. As dose the tarot.

A short video can explain the basic principals of vedic meditation better than I can put into words.

      Hi Kathryn, and welcome! You've found a great place to start.  This Forum and the Members have been the source of great encouragement and information.   I am going through similar issues with my wife, but everybody's situation is different.  Mine is a bit of a roller coaster. My intent is to get therapy for myself first, and then be open and patient with my wife.  If my marriage is worth saving, then its worth that investment in time and patience.   Hoping for the best outcome for you and your family❣️

      I only ever take my forms off to bathe, or work. I sleep with mine and depending on the bra, they are fairly comfortable and stay in place all night. Even with my tossing and turning! Lol. I hope to start HRT soonish and start growing my own, but for now, I am satisfied with my forms. I want to get another pair so I dont wear out the good pair I have.

      Thats where the UTx would be required. If the organ that produces hormones is available, the active gene uses it to prodice its intended hormone. Wether it be testes or ovaries, the gene is what decides which hormone to produce.

      Wonder how it went for you Shawna? I was awake when mine was done, I recall crunching up on my elbows and saying "Bye Fellas!" The little nurse holding onto the little fella to keep it out of the way of the laser knife chuckled. The surgeon asked me why I had said that and I said it had been the hard drive for some very naughty past behavior. Total elapsed time was 43 minutes start to finish.    Get several bags of frozen peas, keep it cool and get well. You'll be doing kip-ups in no time!

      I didn’t start wearing bras until I actually had something to put in a bra. Since then I morphed from feeling sad to take it off to go to bed to ditching it when I get home. At first I wouldn’t leave the apartment without a bra but even that has changed now quite often I will walk to mailbox , take out the garbage or pop over to the neighbors sans bra and not get embarrassed that my nipples are quite noticeable under my T-shirt or tank top. But then again I live in the Emerald Triangle, a land that is a bit stuck in the ‘70’s, a place of hippies and Humboldt Honeys.

      Hi Janae  Well, you nailed this one on the head.  By time we finished dinner I could tell it was no longer a positive experience for both of us.  I think she let all the possibilities of what could happen next to roll around in her head and she closed down.  I think we both went to bed a bit depressed last night. This was the response I was worried about.  It was almost like I was Coming Out a second time.  Almost like she had come to think my gender dysphoria was a passing fantasy, and now she had to face it again (although it had never gone away). As much as I prefer the "open communication" approach my wife does not really handle it very well .. that's our history. This morning she told me she didn't want to talk about it and needed some time ... so its a little bit (actually a lot) tense right now, but I think/hope she will open up again.  She did reaffirm that she supported me going to therapy .. but she pulled back on ever participating.    Not knowing how your wife handles these topics I cannot give you advice on how to proceed based on how this went over with my wife. I almost regret telling her now about wanting therapy, but it was going to have to be addressed sometime, just for my own mental health.  But her delayed reaction and pain is hard for me to watch.  For now, I am just going do what I can to reassure her and to wait and see what happens after I start therapy.  thank you for the support and encouragement❣️

      I find the hormones to be liberating. Yes there are days that I get weepy over seemingly trifle things. But on the whole I love the way the hormones have given me the ability to react to life in a way that seems so authentic. As a man I had to walk a tightrope, skirt minefields and walk on eggshells around emotions that made being a member of the boys club closed to me because I was too girl like in my feelings. Now I just go with the emotions.  No longer have to constantly police myself to “fit” in. Viva  la hormones.

      Correction: Just heard from Angela, She's listed as pre-op call as of 6:35 am her time. My bad.

      If altering the gene causes the testicles to produce estrogen, how would it work on someone with full bottom surgery? With full bottom surgery, the testicles are removed.
    • Patti Anne
      Okay....... Shawna was wheeled into the OR at about 8:32am East Coast time. Angela said that she was nervous, but who wouldn't be? No reports yet after that. She's been in the OR for about 50 minutes and the procedure is scheduled for about 2 hours, assuming no surprises.   Fingers crossed!

      Morning. Didn't sleep much again, but feeling brighter And bearded A friend from forums referred me towards their electrolgist. They have reopened this week and want to look over my face today.  Free consult yeah!!.  Interested what they notice and if they have opinions about the results I have from the work done on me already.   If it doesn't storm I may take a hike afterwards.

      Thanks for that Toni. That’s what I try to tell myself and have been trying for years. I am very talented but my talents go unnoticed because none of them have ever been taken seriously. I write, color beautiful pics, take photos, have 2 degrees Bachelors/Associates.    I wanted to be a teacher but couldn’t get through student teaching. So I got a Bachelors in Science and Educational Studies. I love to teach. All this and I’m stuck in a 9 to 5 collections job. I know I should be happy I have a job.    I get out and use my camera. I write on an app my stories (Chapters) in fact enrolled one story in contest for 1000.00 dollars. I’m great with the people on the phones. My job let’s me present as Tessa to customers. So I’m using my talents just not to the full extent my mind wants me to.    My problem is my family will not accept Tessa and that’s a fact. It’s ok though. I will never be able to fully see myself as Tessa until I refuse the other person. That’s the scary part. I can’t seem to let that other hurt person go which is why I’m stuck.    I’m afraid the world won’t accept her. However, in many arenas it already has! I’m just not convinced of it. My job and I have 1 friend who will embrace her. Everyone on this site is nice and loving.    My struggle is not so much a gender one. It’s finding the true authentic person inside that happens at this time to present more female than male. I don’t want to make people or obligate people to accept someone else I want them to see it’s always been me.    I feel I have a long road ahead. But I’m further than I’ve ever been. (Lorf of The Rings) Sam says this when they step out of the Shire. I just have to keep searching and not give up on myself and know that I matter.    Tess.
