a BRING YOUR OWN MAT moment

In her novel White Oleander, Jane Fritch suggests that beauty is something to be used, "like a hammer or a key". Thats your assignment, Pisces. Find practical ways to make your beauty work for you. For example, invoke it to help you win friends and influence people. Put it into action to drum up new opportunities and hunt down provocative invitations. And don't tell me you possess insufficient beauty to accomplish these things. I guarantee you that you have more than enough. To understand why I'm so sure, you may have to shed some ugly definitions of beauty you've unconsciously absorbed from our warped culture. - Rob Brezsny of Free Will Astrology

Emotional Transference

 In search of the meaning of Emotional Transference, according to Wikipedia, transference is a phenomenon characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another. Hmmmm?

In teaching my Couples Massage Classes, I always inform about examples of EMOTIONAL TRANSFERENCE. Why? Because unconsciously we redirect feelings. For example; you were at work stressed and upset, many individuals like myself hold it in and keep going. We get home and don't think anything of it. Then we find that those we surround ourselves react to that emotion without you having expressed it.
The tension on your shoulders, then you hug a friend, next thing you know they are complaining about their neck or their shoulders. EMOTIONAL TRANSFERENCE!
If thats not enough, how about that feeling you get aside from feeling creeped out by someone, thats not emotional transference thats just passing judgement but you'll sense a room being hostile or someone just feels off. EMOTIONAL TRANSFERENCE!

I share this because there has been all kinds of transference going on that I could only hope that the picture I have above, on my header has transfered some form of good yummy feeling of enjoyment, if you laugh about it, great! Where I was in that picture was on a bridge in a neighborhood where my son and I use to live and we were just threatening to push one another in the river.
