Hey, Alison! Good to "hear" from you! (Yep, it's me! Haven't posted for a long while on the CC and changed my user name; probably'll change it back if I post again.)
Thanks so much for your response! I went to an energy worker 2 weeks ago and he said something to the effect that my Spiritual self was greatly expanded and therefore I was "taking in" a lot of "stuff" --just like what you said--people's emotions, sounds, smells, yes yes yes! and it gets "diagnosed" as MCS/Fibro/CFIDs, etc etc etc. and we are "ill" according to Western society but then the Spirit Guides say we're not! Darn confusing at times, and I too get mad, frustrated, depressed, and yell at Spirit (they love us no matter what!) but not as much as I used to, feel actually calmed down lately, even if my body is still the same. Another healer I work with reminds me that Spirit "vibrates" energetically on the highest level, then comes the emotional self, the mental self, and lastly the physical self--so we are literally dragging our bodies behind us--I always imagine I'm schlepping a heavy suitcase behind me--and it "takes awhile" for our bodies to catch up with the rest of us!
Good luck with your move! I hope you'll still be in a beautiful setting! Say "hey" for me to your other "Ali"! yep, the Essence was fun! See ya 'round the Zone here!
