New Journey – More Medical Stuff Found (No biggie)

A few weeks ago we were at an appointment with our Rheumatologist and we were telling het that our thighs feel like they are tingling and if we exert ourselves they feel like they are on fire.  She ask us what did we think was causing this?  We said “We guess the Ortho-Static Hypotension.”  She said, “No it’s not that.  It is something that has to do with your back. You better make an appointment with your primary care doctor, which we did right then.  We discussed the symptoms with our primary care doctor (We don’t put her name because she is awesome and she might get over-run with new patients that we could not get another appointment with her)  She scheduled an MRI and X-Ray of our lower back lumbar spine.  So off we went and when the day came went to get the MRI and X-ray.

We have not gone through an MRI for years and when we had to fill out the pre-exam form we remembered that it was loud and cramped.  Cramped being that they slide you into a long tube with ear plugs and several towels wrapped around your head covering your ears.  From what we understand that if you are uncomfortable in close places or you flat out have claustrophobia they can administer you something to relax you.  We don’t have that fear so we made a point to close our eyes and start a mindfulness meditation and when the noise began we became one with all the various sounds.  (Just so you know when you are fully in the tube your face is about two inches from the tube side).  Our test took twenty minutes and we meditated through the entire time and felt great when we got out.  Prior to the MRI we did get the x-ray and that took about 10 minutes.  He said to check in with your primary care doctor in a few days.

Sure enough because we have the Stanford My Health “AP” the test results came though there along with notes from our primary care doctor.  The results were “you have a cyst and some lower nerve compression.”  The results were sent to the ortho-spine doctors for further review.  They said that surgery would not be required but a consultation needs to be made to discuss the best way to proceed for a cure.  We have an appointment next week and part of the discussion will be if the cyst needs to be drained.  From what we understand there are non-invasive treatments for everything we have discussed so far.  (Just another opportunity on our journey )

The odd thing about this is when I told several friends many of them have the same symptoms and are seeing a doctor about them.  Some have tingling in lower calves or entire leg.  We did have severe cramping on our calves but we cure that with mindfulness mediation a long time ago.  We have started a series of intense meditations to heal the cyst and nerves by using meditations that rebuild cells back to when we were born.  We also do meditations that change our DNA to eliminate this “issue”.  Just three hours a day and we focus healing energy on the cyst and nerves for an hour and then our entire body from head to toe, and end with a cleaning of our aura.  We send long distance healing energy to many of our friends and now we will add ourselves to the “send”.

We have been following a site where we know we can get an upbeat felling every time we visit.  The site is authored by a teacher in Sweden and she has some really great comments. The Name of the site is “joypassiondesire” <<Click on name.  Here is the link to the meditation video we are listening to right this very moment.  < The You Tube Video we are listening to link   >

We have completely switched over to Lyft from Uber because of the Uber issue which they admitted they have issues with a client when the client has more than one phone.  We told them to cancel the other account and said we will be switching to Lyft.  So far Lyft is basically the same as Uber but we like the application better because it informs you every step of the way when your car is coming and it seems to be cheaper then Uber.  We will be reporting soon as we build some time on our rides.  By the way one of the “bitches” about Lyft is they are slow and if this was true then when we call for our last ride we hooked up in two minutes.  Slow?  We do not think so.

So my friends we hope all is great with all of you and we continue to send blessings to all of you.  You probably received some when we were in the MRI have our test.  They might have been loud so we apologize for the noise.  Thank you all for supporting our site and please take a minute to either hit the “like” button or subscribe. We welcome all.

We have nothing else to report except that we have started researching the trip to France and have added Italy, Norway, Sweden, and England.  We are still open to find a guide that knows all these countries.

Mind Body Balance Class Final – Overview

Course description “An 8 week course to reboot for health” and “In this course, you will learn what it takes to achieve your best health, alongside other like-minded people on the same journey.”

This class came to us when we were working on fine tuning our “Third Eye” (Intuition) and looking for something that would help us attain a solution to a spiritual block we have been meditating on for weeks.  When we received the brochure from Erin it sure felt good and we jumped on the chance to take this course and we called the same day later in the day.  Our excitement grew when we were signed up for the class and given a starting date.  Even though we were excited about this class we have learned that when something new comes along we choose to go into it without any expectation, this way nothing is expected and if something surprises us then we can enjoy the revelation.  (A good tip from us to you)  As it turns out we were constantly surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed every moment.  After meeting all our “class mates” we enjoyed the energy they emitted to the entire room.  Being a Reiki Level II healer from the first day we wanted to heal everyone from the onset, so everyday we did a “energy send” which usually requires an acceptance from the “patient”, but we made a point of starting the “send” just before class to the entire room and continued to the daily end of class.  Our thought process was “The energy will go to all and be used where needed without any judgment on our part”.  The following description is a weekly overview, which we are working on the details for later posts.  There was just so much information that the weekly post will be lengthy enough and hopefully interesting because we will present it in “our words” and one of those words will not be “Try”.  (Ok Teach?).  Our intuition turned out to be spot on and the “energy blockage” was solved and we are now moving along at “break neck” speed.

Overview:

Week 1:  We started with an overview of what the next 8 weeks subjects by week will be.  Then we talked about stress and how life events create stress and affects the onset and course of many illnesses.  Stress on the immune system might dysfunction, hormones levels, nervous system and the effects of stress on our DNA.  Then we discussed Mind Body techniques to relieve stress mainly meditation.  The “present” moment in particular and the book “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle was suggested reading.  (We agree)  (We of course would suggest that you the reader could also read through many of our posts and get to the same results.)  We discussed the benefits or meditation and then did a group meditation.

Week 2:  “The art of eating” We admit before this we knew nothing in detail about food.  Back in the day we were working there we many days of “Pizza, coffee, and junk food in general”, but now we have learned about organic foods however, nothing in particular.  We discussed nutrition, the digestive process, Protein, “Animal vs. Plant Protein”, Fat, Saturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat (Omega 9), Polyunsaturated (Omega-3), Cholesterol, Omega 6, Trans fats, Carbohydrates, Fiber, Micronutrients, and Phytonutrients.  (When we do the detailed week post, please bring a dictionary with you).

Week 3:  More about foods like Poultry, Fish, Caffeine, Sugar, artificial sweeteners (Very bad), Glycemic Index, Junk Food, Water, Oils, Cookware, Ayurvedic Dietary, and how to read the labels on food products and the trickery involved by the companies providing foods.

Week 4: This week the subject was Toxins that are basically everywhere and how toxins get in our body.  An awesome site for checking toxins in specific products is “EWG ORG Site”.  Toxins and the Effects of Endocrine Disruption, Mercury, Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, BPA (Bisphenol A), Dioxin, Atrazine, PCB, Phthalates, Plastics, Organophosphate Pesticides, Detoxification our Liver, Cell Phones, various forms of “detoxing”.

Week 5:  The subject was Vitamins, Herbs, and Natural Supplements.  Whole Foods vs. Nutrition Supplements, Vitamins, A, C, E, D, K, B, (WE knew two A & C and none with numbers added), Vitamin Deficiency, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B% (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pridoxine P5P), B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folate), B12 (Cyanocobalamine), details of B, C, D 1&3, E, and then moved on to Herbs.

Week 6:  Herbs (We though “herbs was a group of Herbert s) Aloe Vera, Black Cohosh, Ashwagandha, Boswellia (Frankincense), Calendula, Chamomile, Chasteberry, Chondrointin, Dandelion, Echinacea, Garlic, and many others.

Week 7 & 8:  Subject description “Integrative Medicine and Complementary Therapies”, East vs. West, Terminologies, Acupuncture, Meridians, Qi, Musculoskeletal Points (Ear), Reiki, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Vatta, Pitta, Kapha, and Aromatherapy with Essential Oils.  (CBD Oil was discussed)

At the end of the day everyone applauded our beyond awesome teacher Susan Payrovi M.D. and if any of you out there wish to take this class there is another class starting soon.  Please Call Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine at (650) 498-5566 if you choose.

For all our friends who know us you know that this entire post was copied from documents e received in class, because there is no way we could even come close to spelling some of these words and even now most of the correct spelling words are coming up with red lines under them.  There is so much to learn and the overall solution to healthy eating seems to be “Vegan”.  We admit that we are following up with this thought in our mind however our focus is simply eating healthy; the “vegan” might come along later.  When we do the weekly posts we will for sure go find a medical dictionary for spell checking because this page looks like some kind of foreign flag.  (CR + numbers – no email?)

Thanks to all my new friends and subscribers who take time of their day to read our posts.  God bless all of you many time over.

We have nothing to except a reminder that we once read in a book by Marianne Williamson that a miracle is “A change of thought” and we have to say this class was one miracle after another.

Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade – The End of Tradition 2018

For many years the Macy’s Day Parade had been our family tradition, where we all gather to watch the parades and enjoy the experience.

The last few years though, we have seen a change.  Who was the genius who decided to start the TV coverage with song routines from Broadway Shows?   This might be of interest to New Yorkers, but to anyone else it total BS.  To the children it’s like going on long trip by car and one of them has to pee, they start asking “When are we going to stop?  I have to go to the bathroom” over and over until we stop. When the Broadway routines start the children start saying “When is this going to be over?  We want to tee the parade!”.  Several adults chimed in too this year.  We all agreed last year if this is part of the TV viewing then this will be the end of a family tradition and we can just as easy take a long car trip.

This year the TV presentation was one LONG commercial; from the second it started to the second it ended.  First we have the Broadway Play commercials for the various plays.  But this year was special.  Yes folks, this year to some we had a controversy.  At the end of the Prom Play two women kissed.  It was not a short kiss, like is passing, it was fairly long and a bit passionate.  We smiled and though great, finally they are bold enough to show what life is really about. But to the billions of conservative families all over the world we could feel the horror of the parents when the children all said “Mommy!  You told us that girls never kiss girls!  Mom!  You lied to us!”  Nothing the parents could say would wipe the image out of the children’s minds and later when guests arrive to enjoy dinner, the children would greet them with “Did you see the two girls kissing?” The parents knew that this would be an ongoing for a very long time.  Todays news has some people pissed off  and others happy that this was included.  (We are happy)

After the Broadway Play commercials and in watching the parade we noticed that every float had some obscure singer on the float promoting their latest song release and lip syncing badly as the song blasted out.  Some of our children even noticed that the words did not match the mouth and we all laughed.  True there were two notables singing. Early in the parade Kelly Clarkson was on a float and Diana Ross later on.  All these years we though Diana was six feet under.  So at least we were informed she was alive and “well”.   Diana at first did not have a microphone in her hand and wasn’t singing even though her song was blasting out.  Then she started lip syncing but her hair was being flipped over her face so we could only see her lips moving.

Of course not only did every singer get in a commercial, but the sponsor of every float got a full minute commercial about their product line.  Then of course the TV station (NBC) had to do their official commercials along with everything else.  We remembered a time when the parade was commercial free and the entire event was aimed at families, but that must have been in a place far, far, away and in s different dimension.  Moving on there were commercial free bands from all over the country.  These were the only participants that were commercial free.  We always look for the balloons of various characters that of course had promotions going on, but we mentally tuned them out and enjoyed seeing the traditional characters and which ones were new.  Finally we saw Santa off in the distance and we knew the torture would soon be over.  When the announcer, said “And here is Santa arriving”, click when the remote and we were done.  By the way, we noticed that the announcers these days we usually people from early morning TV shows.  There was a time when “real stars” from TV did the TV announcing but now, all they do is sit there and read commercial scripts.

We made a point of watching the “live” broadcast, and there was only one in our area on NBC. There were years when there were multiple, but not this year which might indicate that the popularity was waning.  We did notice that later in the day several channels were rerunning the parade and we wondered if the “Girl kiss” was edited out.”

So now our tradition has been whittled down to one parade.  That is the New Years Day Rose Parade that does not have Broadway Play promotions as of last year, and basically commercial free.  It’s okay with us that the float sponsors get talked about, because there is usually a story about each one.  The spectators are another story because the “true blue” ones usually camp overnight on the parade route or near as they can get and they usually get interviewed by roving reporters.  Everyone is welcome at the Rose Parade.

We wish all of our followers had a happy holiday and enjoyed Black Friday Shopping.  We will wait with excitement to see what you will be sending us later in the season (Joke).  We hope you make a point to donate some of that cash that you saved to various charity organizations.  Ours this year is to the forest fire victims that lost everything.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank everyone who voted in the USA mid-term election and to those outside of the USA thank you for taking the time to come to the USA and vote (Joke for Donnie).  Have a safe weekend and hope to see you soon.  By the way, we once attended the Pasadena Do Dah Parade and that at that time was held on Thanksgiving.  We rented a Winnebago and parked right on the parade route.  We had a blast.

Belief System / Meditation / Notes and Hints

We are following up on our last post because several folks asked us to clarify whet we meant be getting rid of the past memories to get to the “now”.

Interesting because this was our biggest challenge and once we got past the challenge everything fell into place.

What to get rid of is making decisions in the “now” based on decisions from the past.  When you made a decision in the past it immediately changed and is no long valid in the “now”.  In our “Quit Smoking “post there are several examples.  Hers is one, in the past when we were working and came to a decision that required some thought, we would go have a cigarette to think it over.  When that decision scenario happens now, the past solution is no longer valid so we stop, take three deep breaths and “in our head” we welcome the urge for a cigarette and say to the “thought/urge” you can hang around if you choose, but we are going to do a mindfulness meditation for the next few minutes.  The “urge” passes and because we treated it by creating a new solution, the next time a decision is needs the urge no longer comes.

More important is anything you are hanging on to in the past, like anger over a divorce or you best friend running off with your girl friend or an argument that you want to be “right” about and are constantly think about these in the now, so you are giving energy to an Illusion.  As long as you continue to give energy by thinking about the situation from the past, then you will be chasing the “now” because you stuck in the past.  We happen to know someone who is still holding a grudge from 1999 and making major decisions based on that situation, when in fact everything about the situation has changed in the “now” reality.  He is still stuck back in 1999 and we have moved on, but we understand that it’s his choice and we honor his choice.  We have forgiven him and continue to pray for him, but we have moved on.  Anything you are hanging on to in the past only you can resolve the situation.  Forgive your ex-girlfriend and of ex-wife and the guy that might have run taken them away from you.  Forgive your mom for spanking you in front of your friends.  Forgive your fourth grade buddy who passed your love note on to that cute blonde girl in your class when he in fact said he would not.  Anything you can that you are hanging on to in the past that requires you to take action to clear it from your mind.  You will feel a huge weight have been lifted when you complete each and finally you will feel freedom.  You can use mediation and visualization to complete this task, because you only have yourself and The Universe to answer too.  Being true to your self is mandatory.  If you’re living a lie then or still stuck in the past, then the “now” will be a constant chase.

Do keep the good times and be sure to share with others, but don’t dwell or live anything from the past.  Remind yourself that your only reality is “Now” and the past and future are both illusions. Know and trust that The Universe will show and guide you on your path.

We talk abut achieving a clear mind and when you get to the “now” and maintain being in the “now” your mind will be clear.  Why do you wish to have a clear mind?  It’s because when The Universe presents you with a solution of an intent that your requested a month or two ago, you will see it or know it.  Let’s say your mate dumped you a few months ago and you asked (Intent) The Universe for a mate that is of the same mindset as you.  So today you are catching a plane at SFO and you’re making your way to the gate though a huge crowd when your eyes meet another person in the crowd and fireworks go off in your head and you just know “this is my future girl/boy friend”.  Now your eyes can only meet if your head is not staring at your IPhone. The Universe is coming through, but you’re not doing your part by playing “Candy Crush”.  Got it?

Maintain a clear mind by getting rid of everyday negative energy, be mindful of what you say and how you say it, keep your Chakra’s in balance, share your experiences with others, and have fun with the “new” you.  It does take some work, but the growth and living in bliss by far is one of the greatest rewards.  Being creative and sharing with others is why we are here.  Everything you dream about is here for you.  Do the work and go find it.  The journey will constantly amaze you and you will grow beyond your wildest dreams.

We have nothing else to add at this time and we send blessings out to all of you.  We do thank Amanda and all of our subscriptions both old and new for being the inspiration for our last two posts.

Gaba’s Easter Egg Hunt – Blast from the Past 2009

Filed under: Family — alaboutnothing @ 1:36 am

 The town we live in announced an Easter Egg Hunt to be held Saturday from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM at the main park in town.  They also mentioned the gate would open at 12:30 PM.  I thought “Gate?  Why a gate and why 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM?  How long does it take to pick up a few Easter Eggs?”  Little did I know that when we arrived at 12:30 PM it was not just an Easter Egg Hunt, it was a free festival for the kids.

 They had Crafts, Face Painting, a live band, refreshments, kids rides, pictures with the East Bunny, and not one Easter Egg Hunting area, but three.  Each “hunt” area was by the child’s age.  The “Pink” area was for ages 1-4, “Orange was for ages 5-7, and “Blue” for ages 8 and older.  What was good was Gaba was rated for the “Pink” Egg Hunting area and that was opened when the gate was open.  The other areas opened at 1:30 PM.  So we went straight to the “Pink” area and Gaba started filling her basket.  There was a limit to six eggs per child, but they also had containers of candy to accompany the eggs.  She was so excited that she was beaming from era to era.  After she filled up her basket we started going to all the other sections.  Gaba had a Lady Bug painted on her cheek, and then we went for a picture with the Easter Bunny, which Gaba refused, but her mom and grandma had one taken.

 When it was close to 1:30 I went over to the area where the older kids were going to do the hunt.  There were hundreds of kids “chomping at the bit” to get through that gate to get to those eggs.  Each of the older kid areas had 4,000 eggs scattered over about a football field.  Then the announcer did a count down from 10 and when the gate opened a river of kids dashed in to each area.  They were running all over the place and jamming up in the front scrambling for eggs.  The smart ones ran past the front to the back of the field where nobody was going and got there fill of eggs without a hassle.  Within 10-15 minutes there was not an egg to be found.  The late comers were told to go to the main stage to get their eggs, but they missed the excitement of the “hunt”.

 We hung around checking out all the booths until about 3:00 PM and then started home.

 It was a great weekend and nothing could please me more than the smile on Gaba’s face.

The 75th Golden Globe Awards – 2018

The Golden Globes is our favorite “award” show because its more of a celebration of the free press and the entertainment industry.  We celebrate the press everyday because they bring us the truth in the news they report daily at all levels.  Or president (Lower case on purpose) says it fake news, but since whats his name is a fake president we consider the source.

Tonight was a celebration of the Women!  From the fist moment to the end of the show, the powerful women were praising all the women in history who choose to speak their truth even when it might place them in peril.

I have been saying for years that we need women to take over this country because in 200 years the men have totally messed it up.  Look at the corruption in politics, and the guy at the top is an embarrassment that other countries laugh at. The “new” Womens Moment (Revolution) started gathering energy decades ago, but it took the guts of some real women heroes to bring the mens harassment, abuse, and overall degrading treatment of women by men to the current news screen.   We hope tonight is the “kick-off” of the moment taking charge and making changes for a better world.  Yes world, because its not just a USA issue, its a world issue.  Some of the other countries “get it”, they have women leaders. Maybe women have been to nice?  If they would just stop and think they would know that if they want change they have four words that could make it happen immediately. The words are “I have a headache”. Followed by “If you touch me I will call 911!” They have the power just as everyone does, but we want and will support then in anyway we can.

The highlight was Oprah getting the Cecil B De-mill Award and we have followed Oprah back in the days in Chicago when she was a cub reporter.   She brought her awesome power with her tonight and put forth an eye opening speech that had us cheering while we watched.  Oprah spread her power around and tonight she shared it with the world.  Yes the room was filled with powerful women and men and she brought forth what her prediction that its time to make the corrupt accountable and women will lead the way.  It was a beautiful moment and all the attendees cheered.  Our conclusion to all this is we think that Oprah should be our next President and her Vice President should be Michele Obama.  Two of the most powerful women in the USA.  They would make it happen and we would be a far better country for it.

We have nothing else to report except that we hope all of our great followers are using the meditations we have been posting.  We are listening to a Crown Chakra video as we place our words on this post.  Followed by Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars (Ellen Show)

Michael Jackson’s music lives on with “Xscape”

Filed under: Family — alaboutnothing @ 3:15 pm
Tags: , , , , , , ,

hqdefault It looks like Michael Jackson’s music will be with us for a very long time.  With the recent release of the  “Xscape” album that is being pushed as music Micheal never released, and was left on the shelf.   The guy was a genius and always will be the one who changed music forever and now this song is sounding pretty good.  We though it was odd having Justin Timberlake in the video even though we like his music, he is not even close to M.J.

The song is “Never Felt So Good”   <<Click here for  the video>>

We wonder where the album cover came from? A creative photo-shop employee or Michael had a vision and looked into the future and thought “Just in case I might need this someday I will take a picture to use as an album cover.”  We wonder?

The next few weeks will be busy in the music reality show world with The Voice (Best music reality show on TV) coming to the final soon and American Idol (The show that started it all) has a final coming soon.  When The Voice completes America’s Got Talent starts.  We will surely miss The Voice and will be looking forward to the new season with the two new judges.

We have nothing else right now except to say we hope you enjoyed “Never Felt So Good”.  We did.
