July 4th 2019

july4Happy 4th of July for all those out there in cyber-space and galaxies beyond the Milky-Way.

For those in cyber-space outside of any United States territory, “Have a great day of nothing.  

We also would like to give a really special shout-out to the British folks because if it wasn’t for them (way back when) we here in the U.S.A. would not have a day off.  We are sending you guys a whole bunch of “NOTHING” that should help your economy.  Just think if England would have won the revolutionary war, Trump might be King.  Terrible thought huh?

Of course we wish to send our prayers out to all the US armed forces out there protecting us and not able to be here to enjoy the day.  THANK YOU ALL!! X 1,000,000,000,000.00

We have nothing to add except be safe out there and if you have time, join us on Twitter, Facebook or please subscribe to our humble blog so you will get an email whenever we post.  Oh and by the way, it’s day 3 and no phone yet.  We are actually embarrassed about yesterdays post.  A few days ago we posted about not having expectations so that if you do and they are not met, you are disappointed.  We must say we had high expectations and when the VERIZON phone did not come on time, we were disappointed.   (Kind of) If we did not have any expectations then we would not have gone through the disappointment. <<Lesson learned.

We wish to thank all of you and send many blessings.  Remember we are one and together we are LOVE.

OMG The phone was delivered a few minutes ago while we were typing this!  LOL  Your energy did it folks.

Let’s Talk Stairs and How to Use Stairs – Reference YouTube

Okay folks, we admit we watch “YouTube” clips often, especially the “Fun Army”, “Coub #XXX”, and many other 10 minute clips.  Mixed in are usually “fails” and these are the clips where we watch with awe and think “What the heck were they thing about when they attempted some sort of action like getting in a sleeping blanket and attempting to slide down a flight of stairs.”

Maybe these folks need to understand what stairs are for, because maybe they all live in a ranch style home where it’s only one level.  These people must not leave the house and go to multi-level buildings in cities and or malls.  If you live in a multi-story house you know that to go between upper and lower level floors you use stairs, unless you can afford an elevator, and then even though you have an elevator, you probably have stairs as a backup.  So let’s say Christina is upstairs and her sister Cindy is downstairs in the kitchen making pan cakes. Her sister does not know how to mix the blend so she calls out to Chris to please come and help.   Chris just woke up and has to pee, but the upstairs bathroom toilet is clogged up because her brother saw a clip on YouTube where they tried to flush a full roll of toilet paper coated with crazy glue and it clogged up the toilet.  So Chris needs to go downstairs anyway and she will use the stairs.  Now for he to do so without climbing in a box, or sleeping bag, or sliding down on her tummy, she will take one step at a time in an upright position slowly descending down the stairs.  When she gets to the lower floor she will make a “bee-line” to the potty yelling to her sister as she runs “I need to pee then I will help you!” See, she made it down the stairs without incident.

We must admit that when we were about 10 years old we were staying at our aunt’s house and sleeping in the bedroom on the second floor.  We woke up to go potty and because our bedroom at home is on the first floor, forgot where we were and when we go to the door turned left and fell down a flight of stairs landing up against the wall at the bottom.  As we remember we took that first step and since there wasn’t floor at a certain point we fell forward and bounced off about the tenth step and slide the rest of the way down on the other steps.  We did cry out, mainly because it was dark and we were scared.  Once we got oriented we laughed at our trip to the potty, which we completed about five minutes later.  Other than this incident we don’t remember ever falling down stairs.

Watching YouTube of course those creative younger children are always looking for a better way to get down the stairs.  The most popular object seems to be a cardboard box.  Of course they use cardboard boxes for all sorts of other things, like pretending you’re in a space craft soaring though the galaxy, or is a race car zipping around Daytona Speedway, or sailing a clipper ship around the word, but for going down the stairs, it’s a new adventure.  Usually once they are in the box they have a “pusher”.  The “Pusher” is an accomplice the pushes the box they are in and they usually get down about four or five stairs before they start tumbling.  Since the box did not work, their older sibling says “Let me show you how to do that!”  They get a mattress off their bed and aim it down the stairs.  “See!  It has to be flat” they say and proceed start down looking like they are going to make but about halfway the front of the mattress digs in to a stair and they tumble the rest of the way down.  “Close, but no cigar” the younger children say and laugh.  Since Mom and Dad were watching the events on the stairs, Dad decides to get involved and says “Think about what you are doing.  Dad has the solution and I will show you how to accomplish this.  Dad has had many experiences when he was young and he and his friends finally figured it out, kind of.  Dad goes into the garage and come out carrying a set of skis.  He goes to the top of the stairs, puts on the skis, and promptly slides down the full length of the stairs, but one big problem is at the bottom he has no way to stop and almost launches through the wall.  He does leave an imprint in the wall, but he did succeed in getting down without a tumble.  He then says “It also works with a bicycle, but the wall at the bottom is the issue.” He adds “If the stairs lead down to a hallway that continues on, then the skis or bicycle work great.”  Soon as “great” is out of Dad’s mouth the children go out the door on their way to Zelda’s house, because her stairs end up at a hallway.

The one other occurrence involves “alcohol” and the stairs are usually in a “frat” house or at a motel where a party is in progress and drinking games dominate.  The older “kids” boast to the others how they have mastered going down the stairs by sliding down on their stomach or rear end.  Of course they try a flat piece of cardboard, and we saw a few try an ironing board.  The ironing board came close, but the wall was an issue.  Some os the crashes looked to be fairly rough, with little moment after the crash.

Finally we have the “prom girl”.  It’s prom night and her date is picking her up so she want to make a grand entrance from the top of the stairs to the bottom in her beautiful gown with Dad video taping.  She starts good, but then that six inch heel catches the edge of the gown and down she goes ending is a heap of silk with flower petals flying all over.  Red faces she stands up and says “Oops!”.  She knows Dad will shortly be sending the video to YouTube, but he will not admit it.  Another is at Halloween when “Batman” is in a hurry to get out the door “Batman” trips at the top and Robin or Alfred is not around to catch him on his tumble down.

So folks we feel better getting this off our minds and now we have cleared up some “brain” space on our way to “nothingness”.  Yes, we also need to clear our minds like we “preach” to you all out there in cyberland.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a few of your precious moments to read our posts.

We have nothing to add at this time except to say our “fountain of youth” project is progressing at full speed.  We actually went past of goal of 40 down to 30 and had to reverse back to 45 and slow down.  We have had several requests for “how to” get younger, and that is “in the works”.  Also “in the works” are Alaboutnoting.com T-Shirts.  The designer is almost done and the printer is waiting.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Interview with Chuck Todd “MTP Daily” (MSNBC)

When we first heard about this interview on “MTP Daily” we were beyond excited because we have followed the new Congresswoman for NY since the day she was elected.  Folks her interview with Chuck not only was informative, but we were listening to every word she spoke.  This was to us the most inspiring interview we have seen in many months.  Representative Ocasio-Cortez is focused on the climate change issue and has been a spokesperson on this for many months and is currently active in finding a solution.  As our followers know, we have done several posts on helping Mother Earth get healed from the abuse humans have and are currently directing toward this great planet Earth.

We are now officially fans of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and will follow her as she moves through the Congress and if she needs any assistance will help in any way we can.  The energy she talked with in answering Chuck’s questions was great to see.  Just the other night when all the newly elected Congresswomen were at the State of the Union address came across with the same energy that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez brought to the interview.

What struck us the most was when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said to Chuck “We will not take ‘you can’t do that’ that comes from the current incumbents’ must be changed to ‘we do not have limitations as to what we can do!”.  This new thinking is exciting and exactly what this country needs.  Look at some of the ‘old men’ currently on both sides of the aisles, they are so far behind what our country needs its sickening.  Bring on the new “breed” and let them take over to take this country back to being the greatest country in the world and leading all the other countries to bringing the world to the new Golden Age.

Ex-VP Joe Biden is a favorite of ours and he is considering running for President in 2020.  Joe, “We love you, but it’s time to let the next generation take this country forward into the future.”  We will only support a women running for President and as of right now Kamala Harris is our choice.  New “blood” and new ideas is what we need.  Chuck said to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez “What do you say to the people who say Medicare for All can not be done at this time?”  Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said “Where is it written that it can’t be done, of course it can be done and we can do it by winning more seats in the Senate in the 2020 election and then having a majority in both the Senate and Congress.”  Se folks, these young folks are thinking positive and bowing down to the old farts, mainly GOP dudes like Mitch O.

We have attempted to bring in more people sending healing energy to Mother Earth and did not have much success, but we have continued a daily meditation dedicated to healing Mother Earth and we will add the committee that is assigned to being solutions to Climate Change and of course all the new Representatives.  Join us folks.  If we do not cure climate change, then we can say bye-bye to our planet, and if we say bye-bye folks, there is no coming back. Mother Earth was here long before we came along and will be here long after we have gone away.  Yes folks, Mother Earth is battling on her survival and the “creators” are watching all the events on this planet.  We believe that if the “creators” believe that Mother Earth needs their assistance, then the “creators” will remove all living from the face of the Earth.  Got it?  Yes folks, we and all living things will be removed and the cycle will start again at the beginning after Mother Earth gets healed.  Folks, let us ask you “Don’t you want you your future children in 3020 online checking their family tree?”.  It’s not going to happen it we don’t address climate change now!  Folks, we can do this and we can do it with the help of other countries.  We are all in this together.  Yes there are the “nay Sayers” and they will be left behind as we progress along with our climate change agenda.

To all the newly elected Representatives we support you 1,000%.  Bring on your new thinking!  Get crazy and start a conversation about what we need to get done and protect our future.

Number one is “Green New Deal” (Green New Deal link) Hundreds of thousands of jobs will be created to get this done and it will take a long time.  It’s just like anything else, it’s and idea that has been created and great amounts of positive energy will be applied to get this done, so it will get done. Let the critics yell and scream knowing that we shall prevail in saving our planet because if we don’t, the cost will be in in the trillions and the human pain will be beyond description.

We have nothing else to report except to say to Florida Rep. Matt Gaete, “When you attempted to get those parents of Parkland students that were murdered thrown out of the committee on hand gun violence you highlighted what the entire Party of Trump believes and will go to any lengths to keep guns on our streets to kill about 40,000 each year”.  Hey Florida!  Is Matt from your district?  How about the next election you vote for a human and not a piece of dirt?

Thanks to all our supporters and readers that stop by and take their precious time to read our posts.

God Bless America and God bless the American people.

One-IAM-ism – New World Religion (our version and belief system)

We have written about our Belief System before and we believe this will be the “New World Religion” when Jesus, Buddha, Mohamed, and all the leaders of all the current religions come back and dissolve all of their current religions.  For example, Jesus will be come the last pope of the Catholic Religion and slowly breakup the religion.  All the other religious leaders will do the same in each of their religions.  The “New World Religion” will be created by all the leaders with a sole purpose of bringing all the humans together as one.  Hence we are calling it “One-IAM-ism”.

“One-IAM-ism”  In General

God was created from the energy of everything that is.  Everything that is, is not just this planet, it’s this galaxy, space, and every galaxy there is for infinity.

We believe in one God and that God is connected to everything that is. Everything that is, is made up of energy and that energy is the connection.

God’s “creators” created the “big Bang” that created our galaxy and many others.  The “Big Bang” also created several other dimensions that are parallel with ours in this life.

If you have not heard about the “Butterfly Effect” it’s when a butterfly flaps its wings another butterfly somewhere else flaps its wings.  This has been proven just recently by astrologists proving the physical phenomenon of Quantum Entanglement.  (Reference to PBS episode “Einstein’s Quantum Riddle”).  We believe that everything we do has an effect somewhere else, like the “Butterfly”.

“One-IAM-ism” on Earth:

God’s love is unconditional so no mater what we humans do, God will always love us.  Because God loves unconditional, God does not judge.  There isn’t any “good” or “bad”, “right” or “wrong”, “ugly” or “beautiful”, there just “is”. The only “rules” we follow are the laws of the land where we live on this planet.  The Bibles’ of all ancient religions are considered historical documents and shall not be taken as “God’s rules”. We have come to Earth as souls looking to evolve and grow spiritually by communication with others and by sharing and our experiences.  As we grow spiritual, so do all the other souls.  Our physical body is a vessel that carries our soul so it can complete its purpose in a given life cycle.   Our soul remains the same but bodies change each time our soul returns to the physical state of being.

The point of each soul is to bring the body and soul to live in the moment and live in bliss. Clear all the past experiences and future thoughts because these are both illusions.  If you are truly living in the moment then you are sharing that exact moment with everything that “is”.  Think about it, everything that “is”.

That’s basically it.  One God that you can talk to anytime you wish, whether it’s out loud, through meditation, prayers, thoughts, or just being and loving God.  You do have free will and if you choose to speak to Jesus, Buddha, Mohamed, or what you think god is, go right ahead, because God will hear you.  Talk to a cement wall if you choose, God always hears you no matter what.

Nothing too tough to understand we think.  You might say, “I get it, but how does this get me to the moment?”  This is where communication with others comes in to the equation.  There are all kinds of tools people use to clear their minds to get rid of negative energy, thoughts from the past, all sorts of ways to get clear and get to the moment.  We started with “self help books” and as we continued our path, people, books, web sites, and events “came to us” to enhance our experience.  We believe that other people all want to get to living in the moment. They somehow “know” that there is more to life then material objects that provide fake happiness or a shot boost to their ego.  The moment has the love of God or in other words, the feeling of the connection to all that “is”.

Have you ever been having a “bad” day and run into someone who is full of energy and seems to be beaming with a beautiful smile and that person smiles at you.  Don’t you smile back?  If they start talking to you, don’t you feel their energy and start to feel better?  This is what we call “In your face” connection.  Let’s take it one more step further.  You are at the airport and scurrying to catch a flight, you probably have you face glued to your phone and walking fast done the aisle to get to your plane.  You on your phone checking the dating site you’re on to meet a partner and you need to check your messages.  There are of course people walking the other way and your “Mr / Ms Right” glances at you, but since you’re in a different zone (phone zone) than they are, you won’t notice and they will go on their way.  Missed opportunity?  Maybe, but now lets say your mind is clear and you are living in the moment, the first ting is there isn’t any worry about catching the plane because you know that God/The Universe will get you there.  So now you are walking along casually and looking all around at all the other people when you see someone looking at you and your eyes lock.  You stop in your tracks and they do too.  Both of you pause still eyes are locked and then like a magnet you walk toward each other and almost simultaneously start talking with each other the moment you are face to face.  You can fill in the rest of this meeting.

We are not saying we are in the moment 100% of the time, but when we are it’s beyond words to describe the joy and love just walking down the street or meeting other people.  Usually before we go out and about we think to God, “Who are you going to send our way today? “ and that puts us in the moment immediately.  We may have already been in the moment and this reinforces it.  We know that when we go out we are always in Gods presence and we can “handle” anything that comes along.  We have noticed that when we are connecting through conversation with others it feels like we have know all the people forever and the truth is we have.

Thanks to all our Earth, dimensional travelers, and other planetary friends that have been supporting us and stop by to read our posts. (Translations available in Klingon)

We send you many blessing and hope you chose to have the most awesome moment ever for repeated moments unto eternity.

We have nothing else to report at tis time dear friends.

Gluten Free and Sugar Free starts today

Here is what led up to our decision and it’s mainly because two people in my life suggested too go with this.  We do feel good, but there are nagging aches and pains that keep coming and going.  My sleep is not so good and we are scheduled to take the sleep analysis test in February, and we will, but we are still going to do this.  My niece listed about 10 things that made her life batter and our other friend said it changed her life.

Normally we would not announce a major life change, but we will be posting our progress along the way and we will include any “hiccups”.  Hey humans are not perfect so straying is part of the journey.  We are going to apply the same procedure that we used to quit smoking.  Any urge or decision on a type of food will be handled with a mindfulness meditation, just like handling smoking urges.  (We have been smoke free for 6 years this month).

The sugar free is a huge change for us.  Good grief!  We love our junk foods like Gold Fish, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios, or any cereal that is “sugar saturated”.  Then the candies out there like Butterfingers, Snickers, and just about any candy on the market.  Then the hidden foods with sugar will be a challenge and this is something we want to report.  If we find a food that says “Gluten Free” and is not, we will report it to you.  So to the companies that say they are Gluten Fee, we are telling you now that we will find you and expose your “fake” claims.  Sure it sells food, but not with exaggerated claims or in English, your lies.   If you are invested in the market on junk food stock we suggest you sell soon.  Please take your profits and donate to a nonprofit organization of your choosing.  If you stay in, then it’s your own risk and we can not be held accountable.

So we started by dumping all our stash’s of sugar and right now we are drinking coffee without sugar.  This is huge in itself! 🙂 We are now appreciating the taste of coffee and need to research is this coffee is gluten free.  We think so, but hey, we will check it out.  Then there is my all time favorite junk food a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.  (We are sitting here thinking about this one)  Bye-bye quarter pounder, our health is more important.  (I can hear my arteries cheering).  Then there is pizza and a zillion other fast foods.  Compared to smoking this will be a challenge and we are thinking that maybe becoming vegan would be the way to go.  (Something to consider)

We do love pasta and that will soon become are new friend.  The sauces will be checked but we like butter as a topping. No cheese of course.  Anchovies are another topping that is a long time favorite.  We doubt if gluten can exist in anchovies, but we will check.

Looks like we are starting a new and exciting adventure and our intent to the universe is to send us someone or a mob or two to guide us as we progress along.  We will be doing some heavy meditations to keep our mind clear so we will see the answers or the people who will be sent.  There has to be a few gluten free souls that came down with us in our soul group. (This where they will surface to join up in our happy journey)

We thank all our subscribers and followers for stopping by an checking out our posts, and to the friends that know us personally please pick yourself off the floor and continue with a great day.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank “Ladi” and Jane for their input and support.

Christmas Shopping 2018

Shopping is usually not at the top of our list except at Christmas.  We like to wish everyone Merry Christmas as we move about the stores or when we are standing in line to meet Santa.  We stand in line for people who might need to use the washroom or run an errand.  Of course we ask everyone we are going to get a present for and they all, yes all, answer “I have no idea.”  This Christmas we want nothing except a card and a hug.  We have converted to a minimalist.  We have everything we need and if something comes up where we need something special, the Universe usually sends what we need.

We do remember the one Christmas that pushed us to our limits.  The special child we were buying for wanted one of those toys that come out at Christmas and this time it was hotter selling than free money.  The think ahead professional shoppers ere all on the store lists that give them first choice.  We did try calling, but the wait for an agent for most stores was an hour and the music was a radio station that was not exactly on the channel so you got static and music.  So we packed food and strong coffee and we had a list of stores loaded in our GPS.  One by one the only open space was about a mile away from the entrance, the store was crawling room only, and of course they were out of what we were looking for.  Six hours later we completed the GPS list and stopped to think about where to go next.  So we meditated and focused on the toy.  We did get an answer form the meditation, but the store that came up was a Christmas ornament store just down the street where we lived.  Because we trust, off we went and parked in front, there were not too many people, and they had what we were looking for.  It was almost overwhelming how happy we were.  We found out that they had received the toy by accident and because they knew it was popular so they kept the load.  Mission accomplished and we took an oath that from now on we will be shopping on-line only.

Someone mentioned shopping on “Black Friday” and that brought a fond memory to mind when we were driving for Uber.  We picked up a couple of people that were going from Palo Alto to downtown San Francisco at about noon.  The rout was 101 North to downtown, about 35 miles.  They did mention that they expected the traffic to be heavy and we had no idea what it was like.  To the surprise of all of us the minute we got on 101 these was hardly any traffic at all.  Then came the miracle, once we got up to speed we did not touch the brakes until we were exiting the 101.  We have taken this rout many times and when we say miracle, we mean miracle.  After the couple exited and we were on the way back the same thing happen and the traffic was so light that the closest car in front of me was a good mile away.  We should have taken a picture but we were to busy enjoying a once in 1,000,000,000,000 experience.  Nothing in our entire Uber experience ever came close again except the time we were crossing Death Valley, but that wasn’t in an Uber.  The cool thing about that experience was two F-104’s buzzed our car about 200 feet off the ground.  We think they were showing us what “real” speed was even though we were going 120 MPH.  We got their point.

So to any of you who are last minute shoppers thinking you are going to get a deal, we hope you do, because there are another million others doing the same thing.  Promise you will take your time and wish everyone a Merry Christmas with a smile and the karma should be enough that you will get what you want.

Karma Driving Hint:  Back in the day when we did a lot of driving a driver cuts us off we would go into a tirade curing and carrying on for at least 10 minutes.  Then we were watching a show and a person said that instead of throwing a fit when someone cut them on they said to the other driver through the windshield “God bless you and great job of driving!”  That’s all and no tirade.  Two seconds and done.  The traffic Gods will smile and you will get great Traffic Karma.

We want to thank all of our subscribers for supporting our site and we hope to see some of you along the way.  Please be safe and cheerful because others will probably join you.

We have nothing to report at this time except to send some warm weather to Half Moon Bay and the entire bay area.  Many blessing to all.

The Great Part of Getting Old – The Senior Pass Card

 Many of my friends ask me for meditations that would make them younger and there are a few, but it takes focus and belief.  Besides if God wanted you to stay young looking he/she would have knocked you off when you were young and reincarnated you for your next life.  We have said over and over that we have had an awesome life while we were young and even though our body has aged our mind is stuck at around 35 years old in our thoughts. Now sometimes this becomes and issue because our body will not do what our mind wants to like jumping over that saw horse in the backyard.  Of course we could jump over the sawhorse (Maybe), but immediately upon landing pull out my cell phone that is lodged in our butt and call 911 if we are still conscious.  So we stay in the moment and we stay focused and aware.

Not many people know that when you retire you automatically get a “Senior Pass Card”.  In case you don’t know what a Senior Pass Card is, it’s the card that you use when you go to the airport and act like you can barely move.  The airline attendant will call someone to wheel you to the gate in a wheelchair zipping through security and when you get to the gate you get on the plane first no matter what your ticket boarding group is.  Just be sure when the fight is over you don’t do cartwheels leaving the arrival gate, you must keep the “act” up until your 10 miles away from the airport.  The people leaving the airplane after you will turn you report you in a heartbeat because they had to fight for overhead luggage space and had to wait until in line for Group Z to be called to board.  We have talked with friends who forgot and when they were going on another flight they were stopped at the ticket counter.  The attendant pulled up a picture of you practically running off the last plane you were on and departing the gate.  Yes folks, they were reported and pictures were taken.  Now they had to beg for a wheelchair and their boarding pass said “After all the passengers and spare luggage was boarded, this person can crawl on board”.  They also make you wear a beanie that has an arrow pointing down and sewn on the front “Senior Pass Card Revoked”.

The Senior Pass also works at restaurants, grocery store, DMV, basically anywhere there is a line.  Just make sure you take a cane with you and then do the “act”.  The best place to use it is Disneyland where the lines are hours long and the handicapped is only a few minutes long.  Beware here!  You get caught “faking” in a Disney line and they will drag you to “It’s a Small World” and tie you behind the scenery and make you stay for six hours.  They tape your eyes open, clean your eras every two hours, and tape your mouth with duct-tape.  After six hours they rip the duct-tape off your mouth and release you to go out into the park.  If you don’t wobble like you’re delusional, they take you back for another four hours.  All reports from family members saying you are lost in the park are destroyed, but they tell the family they are looking for you.  They say to the family “Why don’t you leave your cell phone number and we will call you when we find them?”  The family usually gets a call from Disney after they get back to the hotel and are in the middle of dinner right when the entrée is served. (So you wait another hour or two depending on where you are in the will) We used Disney here, but situation applies to all adventure parks, except for “Small World”, which is replaced by a ride with a catchy tune playing.  We have to warn you again her that when you depart the ride move very slowly departing.  There have been some reported near lynching mobs when Senior Pass Card riders have sped off the ride and the riders who waited six hours saw them and shouted to the others you were faking.  It’s a dangerous game we play, but if you are good at it the perks are great.

Warning I – Never us the Senior Pass Card at your doctor or when in the hospital because they know about that ploy.

Warning II – See the guy in the picture (Not me) at upper left with thumb up?  Never do this pose when kicking in the in The Senior Pass Card act!

We have nothing else to report except to pray that some day these old typing fingers will be replaced by a sweet young secretary that will volunteer her time to help us do your posts. Hopefully “Baby Boomers” will know about what we are talking about in this post, but if we educated some readers then we have done our job.  Happy card playing you guys!

Near Death Experience (NDE)

Recently a friend of mine was telling me about a dream he had.  The dream was one of those “unworldly, spiritual-like” dreams where complete peace is the result.

After listening and thinking about how these experiences come about, I was reminded of a Near Death Experience (NDE) that I experienced many years ago.  In fact, I had forgotten about it until now and hadn’t told many people about it until now.   I was in my teens at the time and when it was all over I thought I was lucky to have survived the incident along with the other kids involved.  More details on this below.

When my friend told me about the dream I did some research and found that many others have experienced NDEs. Most of these experiences, it seems, involved people who were in traumatic situations such as major surgeries where they find themselves hovering over the table in the operating room watching the operation take place.  Some involved auto accidents where they found themselves hovering over the scene, watching themselves and the others lying about.

Mine wasn’t like any of those and here is a quick description of the circumstances leading up to my NDE, the experience itself, and the outcome.

The time was approximately 2:30 AM CST and the place was Freeman Lake in Monticello Indiana.  I had just turned nineteen and I was one of twelve passengers in an overloaded boat that flipped over early that summer morning.  I was sitting in the front seat and there was one person to my left and four others to my right with the driver at the far right.  When the boat began to flip over I could feel the rear sink down and it began to roll to the right.  The last thing I remember is feeling water on my ankles.

The next thing I remember is being in total blackness with a very small light off in the distance in front of me.  I was moving toward the light and as I moved the area around me started to lighten to gray and grow brighter as I moved forward.  I sensed a wonderful peacefulness and calm.  I can only describe it a pure bliss.  Then all of a sudden I stopped moving and voice said, “We are sending you back.  You have many things you need to complete in your lifetime before you come back here.”  I remember thinking “Please don’t send me back I want to stay!”  I then began moving backward very fast.  All of a sudden I was back in the total darkness.

Still in a peaceful state of mind I noticed that my arms were extended above me.  When I pulled them down I rose up and broke the surface of the water I was in and found myself on the side of the overturned boat where I had started.  There were people all around the boat clinging to it.  Everyone seemed to be talking loudly at once and then finally the driver of the boat was on top of the hull and he yelled “Every one shut up and let’s count off!”  We did and two people were missing.  The driver promptly dove in to the water and retrieved the two people who were still under the boat and brought them to the surface.  He placed them on the hull out of the water and then because he knew I could not swim, pulled me up on the hull.  Other boats that were in the immediate area began pulling up and taking survivors aboard and eventually back to land.

Thankfully all twelve passengers survived the accident.  We all discussed the accident afterwards and I really don’t remember thinking about the NDE until about a week later and then because I was so thankful that everyone survived, it really did not mean that much to me at the time.

As I recalled it in days to follow, it seemed that NOTHING seemed to matter as much as prior to the experience.  The peacefulness stayed with me for quite a while and everything seemed to be in perfect place…no thoughts disturbed me.  Soon, the euphoria slowly slipped away and I was back to “normal,” with everyday concerns, schedules and so on.

I must say, I didn’t know what to make of it all since these occurrences were not widely spoken of at that time, but I knew that there was work for me to do and I heeded this message throughout my life.

I’m very interested in any comments and/or experiences you’d like to pass along.

I’ll surely enjoy reading anything you have to share.  If you would like, I can post your experience(s) in a separate blog on this subject.  Let me know.

I have nothing else to report at this time and want to say thank you folks out there in cyberland for taking the time to stop by to support our site.

Sweet dreams.
