Meditation Continued – Practice, Practice, Practice,

At the beginning of this week we felt”off”.  Ever feel good physically, but you feel something is missing or out of sync spiritually.  Usually we have an issue getting out of balance and even though this felt different we did a meditation to get all of our chakra’s in balance.  With getting back in balance complete, we did feel a bit better but the “missing” or “different” feeling was still there.  So we wait a day and then early in the morning we laid down and started a mindfulness meditation and paid specific attention to what thoughts were coming into our mind.  Sure enough it was like a machine gun of thoughts blasting in and even though we kept going back to our breath, it kept up.  Unusual?  Yes, but we have been here before and for us this is when we need remove some serious negative energy.

We have a meditation that we learned during Reiki training that removes negative that is deep down in our spirit.  We are going to describe how we do it, but you might want to develop your own way.

We start a new negative removal video playing “Negative / Toxic energy removal“.

First we take three deep breaths relaxing with each breath.  Then we call some angels for protection because on this meditation when messing with strong negative energy we protect ourselves not only with angels, we visualize a ring of fire around us.  The angels are important in removing negative energy and taking it away.  Then we start a visualization during a mindfulnesses meditation by seeing a hole in front of us and jump in to the hole.  We fall and fall, deeper and deeper.  When we feel the negative energy getting stronger we know we are nearing the end of the fall.  Then all of a sudden we stop and we find ourselves in a huge room with a guardrail circling the room and in the middle is a huge ball of negative energy.  It look like a ball of gooey back tar, bubbling and smelling like the Green Giant sitting on you face and farting.  (Pea Fart)

We call for the angels to start spinning the ball to break the base loose and we push with positive energy with our hands cupped pointing at the ball.  When it breaks loose, the angels carry it away to dispose of it.  Then there is a residue left in a poll and the angels and we focus on the pool moving it to a small ball in the middle and the angels that that away.  With it all removed we focus on filling the void with positive Love energy.  We bring in this energy from the Galactic and Soul Star Chakra’s and when the room is full we send some energy to Mother Earth.  We slowly came out of the meditation, right at the end of the video we started, and we fell GREAT!

WOW! We feel really good and happy we diagnose the weird “missing” feeling.  We then share this great energy boost to everyone in the Universe.

So this is how we get rid of the “crap” way down deep.  In this case it was negative energy that we had taken on after that terrible school shooting in Parkland FL.  We though we did enough to not take it on, but sometimes it gets in.  So this is another way to remove it.

We hope we helped someone out there is cyberland and we welcome all that come by and read our posts.

We have nothing else to report at this time.

American Idol 2018 Hollywood Episode

Up to this episode we have been enjoying the new American Idol on ABC and we enjoyed this episode up to the last group of the night.  This is where it got ugly.  Katy Perry decided to prank the group after all four were accepted.  She said to them “You are all accepted but we only need three, so one of you needs to volunteer to go home so the other three can move on.” This was so cruel to do to these ladies that have been under great stress and struggling for hours.  Katy might be too busy slobbering over every guy contestant and flirting with others.  She even went after a guy who has a girlfriend saying “They are not engaged”.  Here is  a mega-star making a fool out of herself on national TV.  She says she meditates and does Yoga, she must not be focusing on being a nice human being and treating others like she wants to be treated.  She needs to come and read our posts about how to make yourself a better person.  Maybe this outbreak of Katy’s head-games play is what guys get when they meet her.  No wonder she is single LOL

So after a few minutes, the redhead girl volunteer to leave so her friends could move on.  Katy then told her the truth, but we think she should have apologized big time.  The redhead girl  showed us that she is the kind of friend we all should have .  Her action by itself showed that she is an awesome soul and she is welcome to be our friend anytime.

Katy Parry might consider losing some of that extra weight so she can trap a guy.  Our nickname for Katy is “Thunder-thighs” which came to be when she fell on her chunky butt on one of the audition episodes.  You would thnk she can afford a trainer, but maybe she is too cheap.  We have no idea.  We don’t usually post negative remarks but we think Katy needs to be accountable and not just get off with “Oh sorry.”  Cruelty by someone makes us “gag with a spoon” here in California.

So we will continue watching because Lionel and Luke are flat out funny and knowledgeable.  Luke going to that wedding to surprise his fans was great.  It reminded us of the video for “Sugar by Maroon Five“.

So folks, now we are cranking up for The Masters Golf Tournament with Tiger Woods being the favorite even though he has just returned to golf a short time ago.  Now this is a guy that overcame huge issues and got his life back together and we look at him with awe and inspiration.  He quit golf to get his family and health back in order and because he focused on these, he did it.  The guy loves playing golf, but knows what is important and took care of business.

We have nothing else to report except for those who wonder if we watched 60 minutes we did not, but we did read the transcript and thought it was a “yawn”.  Donald “negativity maxed out” Trump will deny everything.

March For Our Lives – The Beginning

Well folks we must tell you that we have not been this inspired in a vary long time.  We have been meditating for months for some sort of solution to all the gun killings in this country and today our intentions have been answered.  Our last post noted how much power you can have when you work as a group and the Parkland Students formulated an idea, gave it tons of energy, and created  a revolution that started today with a world wide march.  These students are not messing around and they “get it” and have “BS detectors”.  They know the vote matters and they know the NRA controls 99.999% of the GOP by giving them money for campaigns.  It’s all on-line and easily found.  The Students are going to call out these guys / gals and invite them to a town hall meeting.  If they refuse, invite the opponent.

We sat and watched all the speakers and saw and we were so proud of all these students we were in tears most of the time.  A million people turned up in Washington DC and millions all around the world.  Where was the POTUS?  Where else golfing in FL just a few miles from Parkland and of course, silent.  This is what the students are going to change.  Marco Rubio was called out today for his hypocrisy on gun control and should probably be updating his resume for the next time he runs.  Marco received 3.3 million from the NRA.  Wait till they check John McCain 7.7 million, Richard Burr 6.9 Million just to name a few.  On the right side bar under “search” enter “NRA” and you will see a list of the top 10 senate and congress persons that received money from the NRA. We posted this November 11, 2017 and March, 2018.

Here is a link for “MARCHFOROURLIVES” Mission Statement.  (Click on it)

We plan to be “living” on this site and promoting this site here.  We are a baby boomer and marched against the Viet Nam War. In Chicago watched the cops beat the crap out of our friends as we were forced to break up the march.  Today they wouldn’t dare that today, but we bet the old guys were thinking about it.  So Baby Boomer’s of America lets help these students save our grand-children.  Just like them we can regenerate that energy we had back then and add it to the student energy and get the change done.

To all out there in cyber-land every night when you go to sleep send out the intent for the Students to be successful and picture an America & world without guns that kill thousands every year.  Check out our posts on meditation and with enough of us sending energy the change will be quick.

We remember where we were when JFK was shot and now we remember where we were when the MARCH FOR OUR LIVES event took place.

We have nothing to report right now, but will be sending updates often.

Meditation Notes and stuff

Hopefully we have helped several of you guys, gals, and others out there in cyber-land to start or get on with some deep meditations.  We thank all of you who have clicked on the “like” or become new email subscriber’s.

Starting by using meditation to relieve stress is what we consider the easiest way but then moving on to deeper issues is something that is so individual that we can only describe our path.  The one thing that is common to all of us is to stay within yourself.  The only truth you have is yours and if you stay withing that truth you will move right along.

When we meditate we start by getting relaxed with three deep breathes and then we think about why we are doing the meditation.  For example if we have an issue talking to someone at work, we ask for a way for us to approach that person and create a connection. Note, we ask for a solution for “us”, because we can only “change” us.  (The only way to change others is by your actions).  Once we decide we move on to the meditation and when we get “deep” with complete silence we listen for the answer or at least, get our mind clear so that when we are done and start our day, if the answer comes we will see it.  This is another reason why being in the moment is important.

Even though there are some great video meditations on You Tube, when we pick one for clearing negative energy we don’t depend on the video to clear the energy, we do our own visualization of the negative energy being removed from our body/soul and the angels that dispose of the negative energy coming to take the energy to the disposal plant. (We create our own way for the visualization).

We have read many self-help / spiritual books over the years and collected many meditation structures. Included in our reading are many books about various religions and just like everything we read, we take what feels good and throw away what doesn’t.  We have created our own belief system and it’s now our way of life, mainly based on Buddhism, but not completely.  Sometimes we meditate and use the Catholic Rosary as the focus and we send the energy out too the universe for all to access.  Praying is the same as meditation if you are focused.  For those who attend a church or place of your religion, that is what we call a group mediation and that is powerful.  Even though we  don’t believe in religions, we honor all that do believe.  We are all here to communicate and share our experiences so no matter what you believe we can still talk to each other face to face.

Sit in a circle with a group of friends and meditate on healing each other.  Take turns sitting in the middle of the circle and you will feel the energy.  We have done this many times and it’s an awesome experience.  There have been times when we were in the middle and had to move out because the energy was so strong.  Have fun with what you have learned and pass the experience along. This makes it all that much more fun and promotes our caring for others.

If you have any questions or wish to create and exchange of ideas, feel free to email us at “alaboutnothing@gmail.com”.  Sometimes when dealing with specifics its easier one on one.  We teach meditation to folks in the area where we live for free.  It’s mostly a starter course and we have met some great people and still meet from time to time for a chat over a Starbuck’s Coffee.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to ask AMB if he has moved on from the illusion he has been supporting all these years?  To all of you who we are grateful for your support we always include you in our healing meditations and prayers.  Namaste

The Golf Channel or The Golf Gossip Channel – Karma

So folks all your hear these days is the name “Tiger Woods” and if you watch the Golf Channel they mention his name at least 500 times during a tournament.  Not only to they mention his name, they play older videos if his achievements on the links.  Even people in other sports are talking about the Tiger Woods comeback and yes folks, he is amazing and he is back to the golf world.  (The “G” is logo is for “gossip”)

We have been Tiger Woods fans since the first time he played on the professional tour and we knew then, this young man is going to be special.

He rose to number one in the world and stayed there for years.  Of course the Golf Channel promoted him to the maximum because he brought viewers to their channel.  Tiger was the greatest thing for golf like Michael Jordan was for basketball.  Then came a day when the new broke about Tiger being involved in some not so good personal problems that cost him his marriage and he quit playing golf.  We thought the Golf Channel would stay out of his personal problems and focus on the golf player, but no, The Golf Channel became the “The Golf Gossip Channel”.  They were on Tiger’s problems like flies on a fresh dog turd.  They had reporters outside his house and were repeating every bit of gossip that came to them, both true and not true.  It was a circus and The Golf Gossip Channel made it worse as the leaders.  We think they thought no way Tiger would return so they trashed him to the maximum.

Now comes the karma, what goes around comes around and now that Tiger is back and great the “The Golf Gossip Channel” at first was timid about his comeback and we even heard a few of the commentators saying no way he will make it and be any good.  These people must not be listening because Tiger said “This is a process and I need to learn all over again how to handle the actual playing in competition, so it might take a few weeks.”.  Then Tiger showed what he was talking about.  At first he missed some fairly easy shots, but and the weeks went on he got better and better and this last weekend he had a chance to win, but like he says, the process goes on.  The crowds this week were massive and last week at Valspar they had to expand the parking and all the other stuff that goes with crowd handling.  So now the “The Golf Gossip Channel” has eliminated the “Gossip” and is once again promoting Tiger in his comeback.  Since Tiger left nobody has filled the gap that Tiger left even though The Golf Channel promoted some really great young players, none matched Tiger and shown be the crowds now coming out to see Tiger.  We of course are dancing around our chair because he is back and we k new he would come back big time.

Now to the “The Golf Channel”, we are asking “When are you going to send a written apology to Tiger Woods?”  Remember when you were the main GOSSIP news channel focused on cheap shots at every chance.  This is Karma in action.  You did not think he would come back from losing his family, several back surgeries and losing his health.  But Tiger not only overcame terrible times and has “fixed” his family, his health, and is the favorite to win “The Masters”.   You came see on his face how happy he is and humble as one can be.  So Golf Channel, “When will you publicly apologize?”

Now if there is a cable channel like ESPN or some other sports network other than the low life Golf Channel you might want to consider making a contract with Tiger to telecast only Tiger woods playing a tournament.  Get some great commentators like the guys on CBS (Not Hicks) and have several cameras only following Tiger.  Maybe a reporter interviewing Tigers fans that are all around him as he plays or promoting “The Tiger Woods Foundation” where Tiger helps kids get a great education.  I know I would be tuned in and probably most of the Tiger woods fans in the world, yes the world knows who Tiger is.

So folks why not send a few million emails to The Golf Channel asking for an apology and a few billion emails to ESPN to telecast only Tiger Woods playing golf?  They could probably raise a few billion dollars for Tigers kids and communities that are in need of funds.

We have nothing else to report except we choose to send some emails soon and will look forward to the next tournament.  Thank you all for stopping by and we send our blessing to all of you.

American Idol 2018 – Audition #1 Day 2

Another entertaining episode and we did enjoy each contestant.  We usually pick one contestant from the early auditions that we think will be the next American Idol or at least in the top ten.  So here is our choice:

Laine Hardy American Idol # 50098

We liked his voice because it is very unique and his singing seemed like he has been singing forever.

The other person that we remember is the girl friend of the guy who has a crush on Katy Perry.  Why her?  Because she had her ear to the door when he was auditioning and couldn’t get through the door fast enough when he stopped singing.  She is cute, but hey, we are Katy Perry fans.  What is she going to do when her boy friend is in Hollywood?  Probably go with him.  We send her the best.

So here is our second choice from tonight:

David Francisco American Idol # 20098 and a link to his story David Francisco bike accident

So great show and we will continue next week.  Thanks to all for stopping by.

We have nothing else to report except we wonder if they went up against The Voice on purpose?

American Idol 2018 – Audition #1

Filed under: TV Shows — alaboutnothing @ 10:12 pm
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan were beyond awesome in their debut of American Idol 2018.  It was entertaining in every way. Funny, drama, interesting, and even though we did not have any expectations,  we were happy to see that it will be a great season.  Thank ABC for bringing back an entertainment icon and inviting hundreds of young people to follow their dreams.

We do have a suggestion, though.  The blonde screamer who though she is gods gift to music did make us happy to hear her stop singing/screaming should get together with the Russian Dude with the ultra high voice.  Then get married, and go rent a Mustang convertible and drive around neighborhoods singing together breaking windows from NY to LA.  When in LA there is a little know religious sect up in the mountains of Irvine East that praise the high voices of the God Screamy-Mimi.  They both would probably rule this sect and have a constant audience of fans.

We were so entertained that we and an inkling to tryout for American Idol, but we beyond the age limit so far we need to wait for American Idol for Seniors with walkers.  Even if we were the right age, because Katy Perry has been our female favorite singer since she was born would have been an issue.  Without first drinking two or three six packs of beer, we probably could not have made a sound just seeing Katy.  So maybe in our next life we will do some Kundalini Meditations and be ready for singing in front of Katy, Lionel, and Luke.

Thanks again ABC, we are looking for a great season for American Idol.

We have nothing to add except we are putting together a new Katy Perry song list.

 

Gun Control – Gun Control Laws – Post from 11/09/2017


We rarely post something not on the positive side but we could not sit here and not say anything about all those innocent victims of shootings starting with way back with Sandy Hook.  Nothing has been said much over the last ninety days and today I turn on the TV and see that the GOP is more interested in getting a phony tax bill passed than GUN CONTROL laws.  So I want to show you why the GOP is not and will not go up against the NRA.  Below is a list of the top 10 Senate and House members that receive donations from the NRA.  The list comes from the NY Times and we invite you to go Google and get the entire list.  Most GOP members get donations and about a handful of DMS.  You will be amazed.  Now its not against the law to accept donations, but if you look at the amounts you will see why they (GOP)  don’t want to risk losing the huge amounts.

The first line on list is the member name and State.  The next line is what they said when the shooting event took place.  The third is the NRA Amount they have received.  The comments see to be a template for each time a shooting happens.

There are numerous articles posted on the web.  We go the above list from the NY Times, but this is the shot list. Just about every GOP Senator and House member gets NRA donations. A few Democrats.  Go to GOOGLE and search “NRA GOP DONATIONS”.  Then sort trough the hundreds of links.

We have nothing to add except to say to the folks out there “Call your state rep and tell him or her that you want gun control not phony tax plans.” To all the victims we are praying for the families and all concerned.

Nabisco OREO Cookie Packaging Tribute

We are dedicating this post to all the people who came up with the new cookie packaging that opens on top and re-seals.  These people hopefully received a HUGE bonus from Nabisco.  We cookie junkies can hardly tell you how much we appreciate this packaging because it saves hours of time.  No more opening the package and removing a “tray” of cookies, then putting it back and hoping it will not go stale.  Actually they never go stale if they are within 30 feet of me.  A simple “Lift” and there they are just waiting for us to enjoy these delicious cookies.  Then if there are any left in the package simple close the flap and its sealed.  Can’t get much easier than that!

We see others also have the package, but because we eat mainly Original Oreo’s Chocolate Sandwich just about every day our focus is with them.  Only 160 calories per 3 cookies. (This is the first time we ever read this).  On the back of the package is a little saying “Carry Love in your heart and Oreo Cookies everywhere else”!  There is also a bunch of really small print about Nutrition but we don’t want to take time to read, after all, we are going to eat them anyway.

We have nothing to else to report except now that we are taking about Oreo’s we are running out to get more and milk too.
