In addition to the QQOTD I am going to post a few of these each week. These are a bunch of GTKY questions. In each post there will be one summer-related question, one question related to your wider life experience, and one to your spirituality and philosophy.

It would be great if you can join in with as many as possible as we have quite a few new and returning members and this will help everyone get to know everyone else even more!

Welcome to instalment one!

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day?

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life?

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven?

I can't think of anything better on a summer day than cold watermelon! YUM!

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life? Down time with the family.

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven? Heaven is where we go after this life to process what we learned, to be free, to watch over our loved ones if we so desire. We are beams of light there, unencumbered by body or shape really. Just pure energy with consciousness. xo

1. Best food is homemade potato salad. This question makes me wanna make it now! Lol

2. More adventure.

3. A meadow full of ankle high grass and flowers, slight breeze, sunny but with some clouds, a pretty Brooke on one side with a tree trunk kinda center where I can sit and enjoy my surroundings or read a good book or visit with loved ones.
Technically, I believe our energy reunites with the universe after you've learned all you have set out to do. But when asked this type of question that's what I think of as the "waiting area" between lives aka heaven(for me anyway).

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day?

Old fashioned, hand cranked, vanilla ice cream

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life?

A more active lifestyle

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven?

The perfect temperature bath, a glass of pinot grigio, a great book, and an uninterrupted hour to enjoy it.

On a spiritual level, I'm not really sure...I believe in reincarnation, and I guess there must be a "holding place" where a soul would spend time until they come back, but I've never really considered what it would be like...food for thought

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day? Watermelon

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life? More joy

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven? A beach of beautiful white sand and pale blue green water. The sun shines down and a light breeze blows. I believe heaven is here on earth, and that after we die we rejoin the collective conscious.

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day?
Granitas! Passionfruit and lime is my favourite. Actually, I saw one on a cooking show a few days ago for apple and celery served on macerated strawberries that looked so amazing, it may just make an appearance as a winter dessert...

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life?
Less routine. I guess that is more taking away, but I guess I could phrase it as adding spontaneity... but not quite. I just want to get out of ruts that I am in and find new things.


Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven?
Enlightenment after finishing a journey through many lives, not necessarily a physical place, but a state of mind.

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day? -- Fruit! Of any kind, with maybe some whip cream

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life? -- A little more freedom. Not feeling it lately.

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven? -- Since I believe in reincarnation, I believe we watch our loved ones until we feel ready to wait for our next life. The area I picture is clear blue skies, a beautiful gentle breeze, hills, sun and a giant leafy tree atop the largest hill in which to bask under. When we are ready, we enter our next life. I'm not 100% sure what happens when we've reached enlightenment. Return to the mother and the energy in which we are all connected I suppose.

Oh I am going to love these. Fascinating to see all the different answers, and even answering styles, really getting an idea of personalities here!

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day?
Salad, followed by ice cream or sorbet for pudding!

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life?
Balance. The ability to rest and relax as well as be productive. Sometimes I'm an overachiever. I definitely don't chill out enough.

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven?
I believe that heaven is a personal and individual experience. I too believe that heaven and hell are on earth, and what we experience in the afterlife is a state of being, in which we may recreate some of the things we loved on earth, and/or may experience things we cannot even imagine here, such as interconnectedness with all souls, and seeing things from a higher perspective.

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life? More 1-on-1 time with the hubby, like a date night once a month at least.

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day?

a turkey sandwich

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life?

passion, for anything. Im the flow with whatever kinda gal. I have passion for animals my children ect but Im talking passion for life, for happiness. Passion that just shows no matter what, this chick is happy with every choice and nothing will bring her down kinda passion.

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven?

I "believe" that heaven can be different for everyone. To me its so hard because I believe a little bit of everything. For example; I believe in reincarnation, I also believe in mediums, how long are you waiting to be reincarnated for? some ppl wait 20-30+ years to speak to their loved ones through a medium. I also believe in ghosts. ah so confusing to me. So I say if I want to believe in sandy beaches as my heaven then thats what itll be.

Believing in Heaven, as it were, does not negate the belief in reincarnation or in Mediums. When we connect with those who have passed on, it is energy that we connect with. They come when the timing is right... When the person on earth is ready to hear the message, when the medium is equipped to channel and when the spirit on the other side is ready to communicate. Channeling is,
Like everything else, a miracle of
Timing and preparedness.

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day? There is nothing better in the world than a sliced up watermelon on a hot day.

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life? A(nother) child. I would really like to know what it is to bring life into the world.

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven? The place that the consciousness goes after death. The possibilities there are endless. I hope to reconnect with those I have lost. While I always hold out hope I will get to see my babies again, I suspect that their souls cycle back faster than someone who lived a while and they will not be there waiting for me.

Your Summer Life: What is the best food on a hot summer day? Strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream together!

Your Life Experience: What would you like to add to your life? I would love to travel outside of the country with my husband. I have been out of the country once and it was an amazingly beautiful experience in which I found myself and figured out so much about who I am and what I wanted to do in my life!

Your Spiritual Life: What is your idea of heaven? I think everyone's ideas of Heaven varies, but I picture Heaven being able to travel and experience any place in the entire known Universe and even revisit Earth with your spouse and loved ones by your side! I am a huge Astrophysics nerd, and I don't see how as humans we would not be able to eventually get to experience more things both in and outside of our solar system and galaxy! I also imagine beautiful weather, a beautiful ocean, field and flowers, just absolute peace next to my husband and loved ones!
