Hi, I am persian, have been living and working in various places and countries. I enjoy visiting new places, meeting new people and getting to know different cultures. I strongly believe in the power of affirmatins and visualisations. I often use affirmatins as a tool to control my (negative) thoughts. Currntly I am focusing on my relationships with other people. My last move, which is to Swizterland showed me that I am not as open and easy going as I used to be, to build strong friendships.

Thanks for the suggestion. I read a review on amazon that said the book was “blaming children born with cerebral palsy as having caused their condition” Is this true? True, “High scores of neuroticism and introversion on psychological tests have also been linked with a predisposition to developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.”(-wikipedia) I hardly beleive i’ve been the victim of such a disposition. I’m sure she’s used some good quotes. I blame a lot of conditions on Hededitry.

I hope that your affirmations work also.‘hederitary’ means prone to disease because of your parents dna. All the best with your estime. I guess i have to work on those ones too.

Okay, I keep putting this off ‘cause it’s not really that great a story, but here it goes.

Many years ago I stayed in Geneva for a few days. Well, when I arrived there I took a cab to the University of Geneva, where I was staying. Well, one thing that I thought that was so fascinating there was that as I was checking in at the college (at that time young travelers were allowed to stay there like it was a hostel) the girl checking me in was carrying on conversations with five people all at once all in different languages, but I digress.

After checking into my room I decided I would walk back down to the city center so I took off walking willy nilly, just meandering around in what I figured was the right direction. As I walked I found “Rue de Dumas” so I followed it, luckily, in the right direction to the city center. I chose this rode because my last name is Dumas. I saw the Dumas Bistro, but didn’t go in because it looked a little beyond my budget. I walked down beautiful cobblestone streets past windows full of what I am sure were outrageously priced antiques. Finally I got downtown. Well, I started talking to some folks and drinking and shortly found myself on a tour boat heading up the lake to Lusanne (sp?). What a beautiful day, I had started out pretty early in the morning. Now I was pleasantly tipsy! When I arrived in Lusanne, it was mid-afternoon by now, I wound up making my way to a pub there. I met more people and began buying drinks. By that evening I was quite pleasantly drunk in the pub and hadn’t seen anything of the town. I order another round of drink and then realise I have spent all of my money! Well, I was a little embarassed, but not too bad really, I had bought PLENTY of drinks for everyone after all. So someone pays for that round, but now I’m out of money and it is very late and I’m supposed to sleep in another town!!! I leave the pub and find there are no more boats back to Geneva until tomorrow. Okay, so now I’m in Lusanne with no money and no place to sleep. I head to the train station and, luckily, the last train hasn’t left yet, which is good for me because I have a train pass. I take the train back to Geneva and when I get off I realize that I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA how to get back to the college and I am still drunk. This is where AMERICAN EXPRESS comes to the rescue. I find an ATM and withdraw some funds, find the ONLY cab left in the whole city and he drives me like a mad man back to the college and I arrive as the sun is rising.

So there you go, that’s my Swiss story for ya’.

Hi Aftab - I’m hoping you have small feet, I’ve seen some pretty big shoeboxes in my time! Good luck with your exceptionally fantastic bookkeeping and may you have plenty of large tax refunds to come (or maybe I should be wishing you pay lots of tax - that would mean you’re making lots of $$$$) Have a wonderful day.

Once again I answered your response on my profile after yours(: Keep trying with the framed blue/white exercise. Once you get it, you won’t believe the quick results. I’ll help you. Just keep telling me, what you’re having trouble with. Maybe, I need to explain it better for you. It’ll happen. We’ll affirm it together(:

Hello Aftab Reading your profile, and seeing that you are living in Switzerland reminded me of my high school days. I went to Switzerland (Zermatt was one of the places) in 1986 with the United States Collegiate Winds Band. The orchestra was comprised of students from all over the US & Canada invited based on competition awards (Solo, duet, trio etc.) It was truly the opportunity of a lifetime for a 16 year old boy from Indianapolis. That was many years ago, we traveled to several countries (France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, England), playing concerts in over a dozen cities. While there were several performances, we also had plenty of downtime - both independent and group tours. Of all that experienced (the people, the cultures,the architecture, the scenery, the history, the food - and the booze. Hey, I was 16 and could order drinks at the Hofbräuhaus!) my time in Switzerland was the most memorable. I found the landscape breathtaking, the people friendly and engaging and everything was so clean - no litter anywhere! Tell me about your experiences there thus far. What cities have you seen, what are you doing there….?

In response to briankw’s comment: Hi Brian, Winds Band? Is that wind instruments? Is it a Jazzie type of band? Were you also in Montreux? I live close by Montreux and the Jazz festival is starting this friday for two weeks, which is pretty cool and fun.

Your trip sounds wonderful :-) I remember my first trip without family, I was also 16 and went to England, was also loads of fun. I realy like Switzerland, I am pretty much used to the cleanliness, since I am also German having lived there for 20 years. The nature here is stunning. Lake Geneva takes my breath away everytime I look at it, and that’s a few times a day :-) I haven’t been to as many places as I would have liked to, but so far I’ve been all around the lake (lausanne, Geneva and the other towns), Bern, Zuerich and yes Zermat also.

In General I LOVE Europe for all the points you have mentioned.

In response to briankw’s comment: Hello again aftab. I am new at this forum and after posting my comments to you yesterday, I wasn’t sure that it went through. I’m glad that you had a chance to read them and reply. The band was more of an orchestra, playing classical (Schubert, Beethoven…) It’s been a while now, but it seems that we played a few marches as well to liven things up. I’ve been thinking about that trumpet, and my youth - I haven’t played it more than 10 minutes since I was a kid, although I do still have it in the closet. Have you been to the states? We do have lots of beauty here - abundant lakes, forests, and a very diverse and changing landscape - the Smokeys, Rockies, Grand Canyon, BadLands, Red Wood petrified Forest, Arizona Desert, the Great Lakes, Hawaiian Islands, the Florida Keys…. I could go on and on. I’ve travelled extensively over the years, and I truly appreciate all of the sites and experiences that I’ve been blessed with. Take, care, and thanks or adding me as a friend. Brian

In response to bbirishbug’s comment: I have lots of stuff from louise hay, I have the video “you can heal your life” and i have her audio affirmations. I also have her “you can heal your body” book in PDF form. I don’t know how to post but will email to anybody who’s interested. Louise Hay is a champion of her own body. I love her spirit, I use her affirmations when I feel physically down.

Never actually seen it snow here. Not cold enough. Melted (where I was) before it even hit the ground. I heard there was more snow in Galveston.

The only time I’ve ever seen snow was far away in the distance on mountains at Yellowstone Nat’l Park. Very dangerous place but beautiful. Taged along with my daughter about 4 yrs ago.

Aftab, Thank You!

You wont believe how sensitive I am. I trust people, and when they turn out to be not as “good” as I assumed, it crushes my soul. You see, they open my eyes to my own imperfection.

I have to come with an affirmation that fights that, once I figure what that is lol :-)

Love your affirmations, especially, “I live and enjoy this moment, here and now.” Isn’t the present just perfect??? I read in yourprofile that you are not as easy and open to new associations as you once were. I find that I am that way too…That’s something that I will work on. Thanks for the awareness! I had never given it any thought until reading your words. Awarness is revealed in unexpected places, I see.

Blessings to you and yours… .

Hi! How are you doing this day or night depending on when you read this either way I hope it was a great and fun filled one.Now on to answering your question on”Rituals” I read and I can’t recall where, about opening the door on New Year eve’s if I am not mistaken maybe it is on New Year’s day like you said in your replied to my post.But I decided to start one new tradition of my own since I could not remember how it went.So on the stroke of midnight on New Year eve turning to New Year’s day I opened my front door and said old New Year thank-you but now you most leave to make room for the New Year and then I said welcome New Year bring us many special beautiful etc..things.I hope that answers your question unless now you are more confuse LOL.Blessings.
