Quit Smoking the Easy Way – Our Experience

xsmokingI am happy to report that last January marks 5 years since I last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment I am very proud of and I am going to share with others who are attempting to quit smoking but struggling with the task. So if you are a non-smoker you might move on to another site, but then again you might wish to share this site to someone you know that is attempting to quit smoking.
I found that when I decided to quit, I created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came my way quickly.

I was smoking one pack a day at the time, and I was going though a severe chest cold which seemed to a fairly regular event at back then. I also had been smoking for over five decades, yes folks, more than fifty years without ever seriously attempting to quit. So here is my solution to quitting which turned out to be easier than expected.

First I met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin. The instructions were one pill a day for three days and then start with two pills a day and continue to smoke. When the third day arrived I had already cut down from 20 to 15 cigarettes a day. I found that I had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days I was at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three. (Ask your doctor about a class or a recommendation)

Then one day I was on my Facebook page when I saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. I stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but I went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. I then went to a page about quitting smoking by Alan Carr and it led me to a PDF download of a book named “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” written by Alan Carr in 1985. I downloaded the file and read the book in one sitting. I have not smoked a cigarette since completing the book. (Thank you Allen)

What this book did for me was to point out that all the thoughts about why I liked smoking or why that cigarette with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning tasted so good, or yeah there is a chance of getting cancer, but not me, etc. The answer is those thoughts are coming from your ADDICTION! Yes your addiction is pointing out how much you enjoy smoking and how special you are for smoking without any issues and of course you are so special that cancer is not an option.

So the actual quitting was easy. I found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when I felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when I was smoking, would smoke a cigarette. I have talked with other people who said this was the part that when they felt some stress, they automatically went back to smoking thinking they would attempt to quit at a later date. (They rarel do) My though was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what I did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. I sat down and started a simple meditation where I focused on my in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. I did this ever time I had the smoking urge and eventually it was a rare event.

These days focusing on your breathing during a meditation is called “Mindfulness Meditation” and classes on how to do Mindfulness Mediation are being offered by most hospitals across the country (For a fee). If you are luck enough to live in or near Redwood City California the Insight Meditation Center offers classes for free (Donations are accepted). Check their web site for more information

If you are interested in on-line classes here is a link to the Google Mindfulness on-line course, yes folks, Goggle has a course on mindfulness and from what we understand they support their employees in using this method to meditate. You even get a certificate when you complete the course.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jin Shin Jyutsu -Healing with Energy

My friend has been going through this treatment for a few weeks and the mucus in his lungs is completely gone along with some other aches and pain.  I talked to my friend before the treatment and he sounded like he had a sever chest cold and I even thought, maybe I should go see him.

Seems there are licensed people that do this treatment, but it seems to work for individuals.  A Google search provided us some practitioners in our area.

I woke up Sunday morning with a clogged head and nasal drip. I held my ring finger for five minutes and it all cleared up! Yes! Gone and I was amazed.

The site I found is >>>> JIN SHIN JYUTSU Site <<<click in link

The following is copied from the above site:
Holding your thumb also opens up channels for you to receive nourishment on an inner and outer level, not only physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  And if you need help falling asleep at night….or getting back to sleep when you wake up too early….just grab your thumb.
This hold also helps dissipate worry, nervousness, stress and tension, so it’s a real godsend of a self-help tool for this day and age!

Hold each finger for 3 to 5 minutes daily and your whole body will experience a wonderful calming, rejuvenating, balancing and harmonizing effect- and it’s cumulative, so the more often you practice JSJ, the more benefit you receive.

The index finger has to do with functions of the muscular and digestive systems, the kidneys, and the bladder; it can help with teeth and gum issues, backaches, and addictions of any kind, as well as with reducing fear, frustration and mental confusion.  So if you need support with any of those issues, grab that finger and hold!

The middle finger relates to the blood, liver and gall bladder, and feelings of anger, irritability, indecision or frustration.  It can also help with eye/vision problems and relieve fatigue.
So hold this finger to work on any of these organs/areas of the body and particular mental and emotional stresses.

The ring finger relates to the lungs and respiratory system, as well as the large intestine, and holding this particular finger works to rejuvenate and bring balance to those parts of the body.
It can also be used for ringing in the ears, excess mucus, and to relieve feelings of sadness, grief, negativity, and being stuck or having trouble with letting go.

And last but not least, the little finger, or “pinky,” is connected with functions of the skeletal system, as well as the heart and small intestine, and can be used to address bone or nerve problems and heart conditions.  On a mental and emotional level, the little finger relates to trying too hard or overdoing, and can help with feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem.

We hope your meditation practice is going well and you’re playing with your energy or sending out to all of us.  Our next post will be a fun meditation that usually provides surprises.

We have nothing else to report except to all Namaste.

Meditation – Words Matter

Before we start this post we invite you to meditate with us as we create this post.  Please skip down if you choose not too.

We are going to start by taking three deep breaths.  Breath in love energy, out goes the negative energy.  let go tension on each in breath.  Relax.

Then from You-Tube we selected the following meditation – PURE POSITIVE ENERGY VIBES (click)

As we start our meditation we are sure to breath in and out through our nose and we will set this as our main rhythm throughout the meditation.  Even when we focus on sending intentions, if a thought other than our intention enters our mind, we go back to our breathing rhythm though our nose until the thought passes (And it will in a few seconds) and then return to sending our intention.

In past posts we have mentioned how important words are and this especially applies to the words we use when we are meditating.  When we meditate and describe in our thoughts what we wish to accomplish its important we use positive words or what you will get back is negative responses from the Universe.  When we meditate we are sending out our requests to the Universe and after it’s sent, we release the thought and continue meditation.  Right this minute we are totally in the moment and fully focused on each word/letter of this post.  You, my friend, are important to us and we look to help you in any way get to living your dream and live it in total bliss.  (Feeling the positive energy vibes).

Words like “try”, “need”,  and “should” are replaced by “We choose”, “We will”, and “We can”, etc.  We use the word “We” to define that we are working together with the Universe to accomplish our intention. When you say “I can’t find the time to meditate”, choose to change the wording to “I will find the time to mediate and I choose to following my plan to meditate everyday.”  Then let it go, and continue in the moment of being in the “now”.

If you are meditating on letting go of stress be sure to notice your breathing and the pleasant/relaxing sound coming from the video.  Continue letting go of the negative tension on the out breath.

Yesterday we were watching the NASCAR Daytona Five Hundred Mile Race mainly to notice what kind of words the commentators  were using and we were pleasantly surprised to hear only positive vibes.  Even when describing something in the past that might have been negative, they turned it in to a positive vibe.  Then Jeff Gordon (Get add on to the cometary team) said something that we constantly talk about and is where we aspire to be.  Jeff was describing what it’s like to be a driver and he said, “If there is an interruption during the race, when the race restarts the driver must be back in the moment because if he lets that interruption cling and nag him, then his driving will suffer until he gets back to the moment.”   We believe that this applies to your life also.  Right now as we type this post, if something interrupts, we stop and get back to the moment before we continue.  What brings us back is going back to our breathing rhythm before continuing.

Jeff’s comment also reminds us that the “cling and nag” also applies to thoughts from the past.  Here is our true meaning of being in the moment – The future and the past are illusions, they are thoughts, and our only reality in in the moment.  When we are with someone or alone we are in the moment.  And in the moment means we are one with the Universe.

We have nothing to add right now except to thank everyone for stopping by to read our post.  If you are meditating please kick back and continue.  It does take some practice, but the rewards are beyond your wildest dreams (Our experience).  Enjoy….

Following Dreams continued

This post is dedicated to Uber Drivers Edgar and Luizpaulo, passenger Charles/Albert, the young lady I met in the 401 Quarry lobby with the green hair, and Erin (Awesome), all of these people I had an awesome conversation with.  Well, not the green haired young lady, all I said to her was “Great hair color!”.  I need to ask Edgar if he assisted that young lady that looked like she was needing a ride when he drooped me off?

So the conversation was “Following Dreams”, and “Meditation”.  We all shared our experiences and had a good time.  I learned from each and they all seem to be following their dreams.  This is what I believe life is all about and I talk about it all the time.  The “Face-to-face” meeting people and having a good time is the best medicine.  With the deluge of information in this day and age is sometimes overwhelming to others and meeting people and sharing that it the same for everyone seems to lift the stress off and we feel like we are part of something bigger.

Meditation is a great way to ease stress, but I believe that once we master that, the next challenge is to find out what is causing the stress and learn how to remove the cause from our lives.  This is where I go with my meditations, not only for stress, but for everything in my life that I feel negative energy.  First I meditate to keep my head clear and that way when something comes along that “does feel right” I notice and make a mental note to ponder what happen and how to handle the experience next time.  With a clear head I also notice the positive experiences that get my attention and I thank the Universe for all that they do and share the feeling with everyone.  The point is to notice, and the way to get to that point is to meditate.

I start my day immediately when I get out of bed with a this morning meditation “Morning meditation” that is nine minutes and you can just listen or go about your morning duties.  I grab a cup of coffee and then close my eyes, take three deep breaths, and relax for a few minutes to decide which of the meditations I have saved to listen to.  Maybe its something I have been pondering or I have several clearing negative energy video meditations saved.  Because I am in touch with Chakra’s being a Reiki Healer, I have some awesome video meditations saved and I make sure to keep my Chakra’s in balance.  Then because I believe we can cure some of our aches and pains I have some video meditations that are for healing myself at the DNA level, cell level, and body in general.  Sometimes I randomly pick one, it depends on what the moment holds.

I subscribe to “Meditative Mind” on You Tube and when I get a new video meditation each day if it “rings positive” I make sure to send it out to my friends that I have on a phone list and send out the link via “Message”.  (Note to self – automate)

When I talk to some of my friends about meditation some say that “I don’t have the time.” Then I say, “choose to have the time.” When they say that they will not have the time because the ego will make sure they don’t have the time and they they will be right.  When they “choose” the are making a contract with themselves to complete the task.  Words are important, especially when we are talking to ourself.  Another word is “Try”, replace with “Choose”, or “I will”.   Many self-help books discuss these actions.

When I look at my book library I see the progression of my journey as I have read various books in the order of my growth.  Of course there have been highs and lows.  I am grateful for both the highs and lows.  The lows are opportunities to learn and grow. There have been times we have faced the fear and found the other-side to be slam dunk awesome.  Something I have learned is when something amazing comes my way we make sure to mentally send the energy out to everyone that is and every will be.

When we go out and about our intention is for a party to break out with whomever we interact with, even if it just a smile and a wave. Have fun with it and enjoy.

We have nothing to add except to thank everyone for the positive energy yesterday and hopefully the Ubers guys got some great tips.

Shingles Virus NEW Vaccine

We went for our quarterly check-up today and we were informed that even though we received the Shingles Vaccine four years ago, it’s highly recommended by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that all adults 50 and older receive the new two-shot vaccine of Shingrix.  My doctor said the old vaccine has been she agrees with the Disease Control dudes and that the new vaccine is significantly more effective.  In my words, the other vaccine is no good and we had better get the new one A.S.A.P.  If you have ever had shingles you know you don’t want it again.  We had a mild case on the left side of our forehead and it felt like someone was sticking ice picks in our skull and the medication was unbelievably expensive.

We suggest you all call or contact your doctor for any information.

We wonder if the is a shot for over watching the Olympic Curling?

We have nothing else to add except we are watching Shaun White do his last run for the gold.

SHAUN WHITE WINS THE GOLD !!!!!!!     USA  USA  USA  USA  USA !!!!!

2018 Olympics in PyeongChang South Korea – Day 2

Today if you tuned in to see Snowboarding you got Curling.  If you tuned in to see Men’s Downhill, you got Curling.  If you tuned in to see Women’s Downhill you got Curling.  If you tuned in to see Mike Pence and Adam Rippon kiss and make up you got Curling.  So today the Curling fans were in their height of glory because of the high winds.  Then there was Ice Skating and if you tuned in for Ice Skating you got enough Ice Skating for the next four years.  It seemed like several hundred (20) competitors were going for the team medal on the ice.

Just when we though NBC was improving the commentary they ran a bit about Men’s Cross-country Skiing where the Gold Medal winner started by falling down and then came from behind to win.  The commentary seemed like it was dubbed in after-the-fact and it was terrible.  NBC must have had the voice over done at the US White House.  It was that lame.

We just checked Women’s Snowboarding and it’s on!  They must have run out of Curling video!

So far we think that the Men’s Snowboarding where 17 Year-Old USA Red Gerard won a gold medal has been the most exciting.  On every run we thought “How the heck to you train for this?”, or “Those guys are crazy!”.  It was great watching those competitors having what seem like a good time.

Women’s Snowboarding continues and they are a bit laid back compared to the guys, but still exciting.  I wouldn’t get on those hills with a sled.  USA Jamie Anderson is in the lead after the first run.

 Looks like Mike has the “hots” for Adam and we got Curling.

We have nothing else right now!  Thank you for stopping by and God Bless all of you.
