Welcome ~ Welcome …

My Profile is ever-evolving, just as our Souls should BE!

❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗

~ ALL ARE WELCOME HERE!!! ~

~ ~ ~ I LOVE EVERYONE! ~ ~ ~

🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤ 🤗❤🤗❤

~ Attention: ~ Found out that our small town post office & even our larger neighboring ones, send all mail to the regional PO first, before sorting or post marking! -- which can take several days to do so! I click sent, when I’ve placed the swap in my mailbox (unless it’s a bulky package or boxed, that won’t fit, or requires extras, then I go to the PO), after that it’s up to the postal service! I’m not responsible for when they decide to process it.

If 3-5 weeks, go by & you haven't received your swap from me (in the US), please let me know; I'm more than happy to resend it. Some people report receiving their swaps quickly & others are quiet delayed. I don’t know what’s up with that; I choose to release any worry about it now, otherwise, I can get too stressed out with concern about if you’ve received what I had sent you or made for you! I put a lot of time & effort into my swaps!

If it's international, please allow over 4 + wks to arrive.😇's


On taping envelopes & packages: ~ Since too many have arrived to me & also reported to have arrived to others opened in the past that weren’t taped, I tape them with packaging tape now. I leave a little gap at the top, for those who prefer using envelope openers / cutters, yet tape the seams; if you struggle with this, I suggest using scissors to thinly cut off the side edge, like I do with mine.

Packages will always be securely taped on all the seems. I suggest using a box cutter or scissors.


Some swaps I can send shortly after partners are assigned, whilst some (depending on the swap, or when I realized it existed, or the designated time allowance, or what’s come up in my life) I might send on the last day, yet I do Not consider that to be late!!! Late is past the deadline date! If that should occur, I would contact my partner(s) to inform them.

This is meant to be fun! If you’re the time-obsessed-type, then I suggest that you work on relaxing, distressing, get grounded in nature, take deep belly breath’s & look inward at what’s truly important in life. All we can ever do, really, is work on ourselves! Help me hold a vision that our postal system works well, with integrity, haste & safety for all involved (just driving daily can be dangerous, esp. stopping at mailboxes on highways!), … because that’s all I can do once it’s left my letterbox.

Please note, if I should ever miscalculate any postage, please let me know and I shall reimburse you, as soon as possible! Thank you!

Unless there’s unforeseen circumstances, please rate me straight away, around the same day that you receive my swap, when you can. ~ It's greatly appreciated!!! Thank you. ~ I can get anxiety, not knowing if you've received my swap! Feedback / comments, is important & helps us all grow, as well.

If I haven’t rated or acknowledged your mail, then I haven’t received it yet. ~ Feel free to message me.


Now...

About me? Hmmm. Just another intuitive Spiritual Energy BE-ing having a physical experience here in this wondrous world of ours! My name is, Zaadia. I’m an empathic HSP & social introvert; I pick up on resonate energy frequencies everywhere, throughout my life. Everything IS resonance. ~ (Yes, it’s been scientifically proven.) Instead of saying those of us who experience this, are “just too sensitive,” rather why not simply say that some of us are just not as numbed out, as others. (This system is designed to create a lot of factors to numb us, in our world! …& it’s our choice to take responsibility for what we can, to help our body / system Thrive Well!) So, I cherish my quiet me-time, to recoup! Plus, I personally enjoy slow living & feel that’s what we’re all designed for, to explore our creativity & ultimately get to know OurSelves! …and celebrate others with Love!

I’m married to my best friend & have one wonderful grown son, who flew from our nest years ago.

We currently have some TX land in the country (& plans of expanding), that backs up to a small lake below two sides of our land, with an abundance of dragonflies & beautiful sunset views. (We’re high up on a large wooded hill, so it’s safe, with a microclimate & passive cooling breezes coming across the lake. So nice & something we’re very grateful for in the summer.) It’s perfect for our small-cat sanctuary. We’ve taken in a couple of feral families to give them a place to stay & still be Free. They’re considered Barn cats. (We s&n those we can catch, working with a local shelter & our lovely neighbors.)

It’s quite the experience in observing their behaviors with a whole family dynamic, unlike other humans who are quick to separate children from their parents! I don’t view BEings as property & am not fond of the word, “Owner,” I don’t believe in slavery of any form! So we consider ourselves to be their Guardians & / or God-Parents; I even write it on any Vet forms! We consider them our Family! Just like I consider our whole world, as Family.

Oh & Yes, male cats take an active role in parenting, given the chance! More on all that some other time; I’m working on a blog or book.) Cats parenting styles are pretty similar to humans, in many situations.

Cat toys, are always welcome! Especially, made from natural materials, that won’t harm our eco system or watershed. T.Y.😸


=====================================

You are special to me! Your time, effort, presence and consideration when putting together a swap with me in mind, IS special to me! If it gets to me, arrives in our mailbox, tattered or whole, then I consider that to be special... so I will give Hearts!

I do Not give extras in hopes of receiving a Heart. I give extras based on merely wanting to share what I can with you, when I can & if I feel you might like it. ~ mostly I just enjoy astonishing others & bringing some joy into their lives!

Please note: I’m the type who prefers quality over quantity; although I do have a lot to give & share from my own stash & may generously do so if I feel it may interest you. I enjoy giving surprise RAK's, especially for birthdays, or just because!

Regarding home deco & fashion: I prefer practicality & function first (especially multipurpose things), before aesthetics in general in life, yet I also have exquisite taste & appreciate beautiful artwork / designs & the thought + care that goes into them. If something has both, that’s an added bonus!

Please realize, with my health care background, I often practice hand washing with genuine sanitizing EO's & castille soap; so I stay away from the standard immune reducing toxic chemical cleaner brands, wherever possible

I've also not licked a stamp or envelope, since the '80's or '90's, when I questioned the chemical component of the glue! I use the moist cloth & / or tape method, instead.

I also do Not adhere to societal programming, which attempts to instill, if one merely has an opinion, that they should be labeled an extremist & shunned! (With a few exceptions, like Human trafficking, of which I will not tolerate, etc.) Mature adults can share perspectives with each other from different views, actively listen with intent to get what the other is trying to convey & still value each other. So bring on your opinions, share your view points with me & even vent if you need to, for I’ll love you anyway! This is one of the reasons I have so many diverse friends in life, who often remind me that they feel safe & can share anything with me; I cherish them all!

I'm open to private swaps, feel free to contact me!

Lol) I’ve written Human as my race on every legal document, or otherwise, since I was old enough to write! It’s something that my Spirit is very adamant about, even though it’s been the subject of conflict among those who live within old paradigm notions of compartmentalized disconnections; I hold my ground, until someone can prove to me that being Human is not my race! [So far, no one can!] This is one of my souls purposes here & something I’ve written about & documented. There’s no reason to be queried about race in our world! Blood types for medical reasons, yes; however, race is human! Period. { Now, I can sense your wondering if my food type preferences have anything to do with my genetic background & I’d love to see you marvel on your epiphany if / when you meet me!

💕Jainism - Although, I was born & later baptized into a Methodist family, according to several belief-quizzes (in college & throughout the years), my values closely resonate with Jainism (yet not necessarily to their extreme-monk levels; rather, it’s just about being in presence & doing ones best, day to day*. Catching our thoughts and shifting them, into that with which we wish to see & experience in our world! It’s also BEing present & responsible with ones thoughts & actions, while respecting all life as Sentient.). I wonder if those quizzes had Paganism in their list? 🤔 ~ So if one is curious, I believe in Source / God / the Universe / Mother Nature / the Sun 🌞, Jesus / Christ-Consciousness, Buddha & other great wise heroes, too; yet I’m not into organized religion, nor *anyone pushing theirs onto others! ~ Basically, I consider myself a Spiritual person, whose so-called-religion is Love!

I much prefer watching educational, skill building, or craft videos on YouTube or documentaries, etc.

Music - esp. the 2Cellos, Celtic Women, easy listening, healing resonance, instrumental, uplifting & most types from my grand & great grandmother’s era!

(This includes recipes, using animal flesh or their other body parts, etc. Also, any animal skin prints or things depicting such, unless it's still representative of residing on a living animal.)

- Loose Glitter! - it’s terrible for our environment & hurts animals! (Only sealed, adhered, glued or contained eco-friendly loose glitter, please!

- Gum

- Sports or other forms of Divisive Competition activities / behaviors - this shallow practice is detrimental to ones spirit & lowers vibrations, which perpetuates disconnection & feeds parasitic entities!

- Alcohol - as a beverage or anything promoting it! Original alcohol was equal to what we know of today as kombucha; as time went on, it was made stronger by fermenting longer & today it’s very detrimental to body, mind & spirit.

- Horror - *Like alcohol, it invites soul-sucking disembodied entities, that feed off peoples negative emotions / frequencies & stress hormones! I can see, feel & observe this, when people subject themselves to such dense, nearly-stagnant vibrational activities! It, therefore, holds spirits back from discovering their full divinity of gifts! Why do that to yourself, or others? It's so sad to witness!!!!!!!!!

- Rooibus, honeybush, cassia-type-cinnamon or Lipton teas

- Ad cards, raunchy, crude, hateful, ugly attitude Postcards (or superficial, not much effort, generalized messages, examples: just saying "Hi, Hello, Greetings or happy swapping" & nothing else ... saddens me!!!Please make an effort! ~ I do! If you’re stumped, tell me three random fun-facts about yourself or where you live.)

- Cheap-quality stickers / washi or paper (especially, no kid / teacher / reward or planner types)

- Licensed characters, cartoons or anime - except for Beatrix Potter, (Although, I do have an appreciation for these things, yet don't have any use for such presently in my life; like tattoos, I can appreciate the art, yet have no use for it on a personal basis. Make sense?)

- Commercialized holidays (ie: traditional types, pretty much all of them, these days! Although, I may participate in swaps that are related or give such items away. I do especially enjoy general seasonal things related to fall, winter, spring & summer)

- Polyester or synthetic fabrics, yuk!!!!

- Artificial Flavors or Chemical Fragrances (They’re loaded with Toxins, hormone disrupters and lower the immune system!)

- Dust, mold or smoke smells!

- Nonsensical Fear-based lifestyles & deliberate ignorance. (Choosing to feel Love, make efforts at Understanding with Connection & Self education are the Keys!!!)

- Flakers!!!!!!! - unless there's some dire situation, it's unnecessary and mean to do to someone! Communicate with me, if something has come up! I am a flexible & forgiving person, which can usually work something out.

(Disheartened Deflated Disappointments)...

=====================================

Tea Swap(s) I've yet to receive from: 😢 If & when, I should ever actually receive them, or if they're ever Angeled (hint. hint.lol)... Then I shall remove them from this list.

  • Tea for Thee # 89 ~ I sent concerned messages to both my partner & the coordinator. No response from my partner, who has also not been back on SB. (Sigh) Coordinator responded later, with suggestions of what I already previously did & had already appropriately rated the partner. I informed that I already had. No further response.

  • Stuff the Mailbox #: 28 ~ haven't received from @Moonchild07 (profile has a red flag, stating user is partially suspended), @ShayShay & @WinifredSanderson Sent messages to each one, offering they resend.

Really didn’t want to go here, yet it seems that some people may require this insight! **. . .**

Re: veganism & certain partners:

There have been those who feel the twisted need to send me things, that depict what they think is anti-vegan, as a passive aggressive statement! (Those of you who’ve done this, well, you know who you are! I can sense your intent & have discharged your negativity with neutralizing prayers. I can smell the level of ones ego parasite, too, and it reeks! You are forgiven. Yet I feel that you should know this, for it’s just as much a message for you, too)...

It saddens my soul, knowing the energy space they are in and the parasitic ego that’s driving them! See based on my observations & experience in our world, those who blindly insist on feeding their parasites whilst feeling some sort of misguided high (thinking they are right), will eventually fall when they finally chose to BEcome Aware! They shall see the bigger picture. The higher one subjects themselves to, the harder they will fall and knowing the pain they shall experience saddens my soul. Whilst knowing this & the space they choose to be in now, I also feel sorry for them.

Some have thought of my perceived gifts as being witchy & become afraid, yet I don’t want anyone to fear me! I don’t want one to have any fear, at all. Fear clouds ones vision! ... & stagnates the soul!!! My message here, is about moment by moment, choosing to remain in a space of wonder, awe, love & connection with Our World!!!

Funny thing is, all those meat products that some anti-vegans think are so great to try to shove in our faces are easily made vegan! You think I don’t enjoy the taste of eggs, cheese, burgers, hot dogs and other meats? I do like the taste. That’s not the issue! Those products are only tasty because of the seasonings added, which can be used in plant-based recipes!

I have multiple reasons for choosing to be vegan and I AM Thriving Well, because of it! So instead of those who are being judgmental, trying to push their misguided beliefs or Speciesist religion onto me (I don’t push my beliefs onto others!!! Not all vegans are fanatics! I may freely educate, those willing to learn & share my perspectives, though!), Instead why don’t you simply ask me why?!?!??? . . . Part of my why, just may surprise you! Yet if more people knew about it, they’d mostly likely Thrive Well, too!

This concludes my debriefing! ~ Thank you for reading it! . . . And if you read my whole profile, kudos! ~ I Celebrate You!!!!! Wow! Thank you!!!!!!!!! ~ I realize the writer in me, who strives for communicative clarity, can get carried away! 😊

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful beginning of a PC! Can't wait to add to this ♥
Response: You’re welcome. Thanks for the compliment. I thought it’d be extra fun to play with my dry embossing folder, since I liked the autumn washi on gold foil effect so much, I put it through the wringer! Haha. Love the texture & think it looks cool, so I added some elements & included it on the pc with trepidation that is still within the swap requirements. Glad to know it’s well received! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z

Comment: Wow Zaadia!! I love everything u sent. Thanks for ur generosity! I love the washi tape samples, pretty stickers and those cute die cuts are just like autumn fallen leaves!! Thrive well! 😉
Response: You’re very welcome! So glad to know it arrived well & you enjoy it all! Funny thing is, the next day after mailing it, several of our trees leaves changed color & I thought, ‘Uh, I could have included some for you to see, if I had waited one more day!’ Sigh.

Comment: Hi Zaadia, Thank You for returning my postcard to me after you colored the last section of the postcard I sent out and the came back. A lot of similar colors were used in the 4 sections. I hope we meet-up again in the future! !Continued ENJOYMENT on Swap-bot! Barbara B., sleepingrover2010
Response: You’re welcome, Barbara. According to my records, though, I sent you someone else’s pc, with the last section for you to color & then mail it home. Anyway, I’m glad to know you got it & hope you like my extra little gifts for you. Thanks for the rating, the comments (although, confusing) & the ❤️. ~ Z

Comment: Thanks! I wanted to make more and more, too. Are you Russian? Your handwriting reminds me of a Russian friend of mine’s.
Response: You’re welcome. Glad to know they arrived safely & hopefully you’re pleased. I often have people curious about my name’s origin, however, I’ve yet to experience a geographical inquiry, based on my handwriting. This peeks my interest! ( Hmmm, do I have a handwriting doppelgänger? 🧐🤪 ) ~ I did have a friend from Turkey, who once said I could probably easily write their native language. To answer your Q: I’m a Texan by birth. Many in my family have puzzled over my handwriting, for no one else wrote like me & my mom is left handed, whereas, I use my right to write. I started writing at a very early age & they all originally thought the other relatives were teaching me, yet they were not. (Hand sewing & art, as well.) Then decades later, when my son was homeschooling, we found out that my handwriting style has a type called *Italics* & there’s even an organization in the UK that teaches people how to write like this! Funny stuff. I didn’t know that was a thing! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z

Comment: I love a postcard where every bit of space is written on. <3
Response: Yes, indeed! Me, too! It’s the first thing I go for, when receiving a postcard; I can’t wait to read what someone wrote, to learn more about them, in their part of our world! Thanks for the rating, comment & ❤️. ~ Z

Comment: Hi Zaadia~ WOW is all I can say about the swap you sent. Such an amazing bunch of goodies, I can't believe it! LOVE that embossed tag and all the other little things you made. You really put together a thoughtful package--many thanks and I hope we get to swap together again very soon!
Response: You’re very welcome! It was fun for me, too! Sometimes, I like to see if I can intuitively choose what a person might enjoy & these blind swaps are perfect for that. Yet then again, this was easy since I love nature & have acquired several items within this theme, which is why I felt like I should do something extra & also play with my paper embossing sleeves. So glad to know that you love it all! It fills me with warm joy! Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z

Comment: Such a beautiful and special card. This Will go in my Christmas collection. I laminated them and we hang them up on a garland for wishes around the world at Christmas. Thank you so much for the prayers and wishes. It felt like a warm hug. ❤️
Response: You’re very welcome! Aaahh, your words fill me with delightful joy! — And your Garland idea, sounds divine! What a thoughtful way to be present with your cards again & share them with the Christmas Spirit for others, too! I think I might adopt that beautiful sentiment experience, as well!!! Thank you for sharing that with me and for your rating, your lovely comments & ❤️! ~ Z 💕

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card! It certainly has taken its time getting here, but it finally arrived, and it's awesome!
Response: Whoa! Wow! Hope that pc got to see a lot of sights! That seems rather long. Wondering if it got stuck to something, or hitchhiked a ride to some great beyond! Well, I’m glad it arrived and hope you’re pleased. This was my favorite, out of the two I received to work on, so far. Wonder if anything fell off? Or how many scars it may have on such a journey? Thanks for the rating, comments & ❤️. ~ Z
