Questions / Statements / Venting from the Staff of Alaboutnothing

Because we constantly clearing our mind with one thing we wish to attain and that is “Nothingness”. There comes a time we need to know answers to some of our questions.  The clearing causes us to ask other people the answers either here or when we go out and about.  So here are some questions, and some statements / opinions, and finally some of our venting.  As we always “preach”, we are here to help and connect with other humans and we will continue to connect with all the AWESOME humans we meet along our journey.

Question:

We have wondered about this for a very long time.  In Chevrolet commercials they end with the slogan “Find new roads”.  What the heck does that mean?  Find new roads?  The car only runs on a new road? We have not seen a new road in years, so do they provide a map of new roads?  What is we need to take old roads to get to the new roads do they provide assistance?  We are Chevy fans, but we are confused abut this and have moved on to looking at the Dodge Demon, which in our opinion kicks ass on any road.

Question:

Have you ever noticed when watching a golf tournament on TV when the player hits the ball someone always yells out “In the hole!”?  Are there 18 paid people who stand at each hole and yell this phrase?  If so I want one of those jobs.  Do they pay well?  Do they get bonus if on a par three a player gets a hole in one and they yelled it?  This has to be a “sweet” job if you’re a golf fan.  Do they only work when the tournament is on TV?  Do they travel around to the different places the tournaments are played?

Question:

Do you miss Anthony Bourdain as much as we do?  His shows “Part Unknown” and “No Reservations” are still on TV and Netflix and we watch them every chance we get.  Anthony / Tony, a great story teller and would get out there past the tourist places in different countries with the “folks”.  Tony showed his human side often and we respected his opinion.

Question:

We were closely watching the Weather Channel during the hurricane Florence and we noticed one of the reports pronounced “Immediately” as “ammediately”.  Yes, more than once she used the “A” instead of the “I”.  Then we noticed more than one reporter on the Weather Channel and other news channels pronouncing “immediately” with an “A”. For us to notice this is huge because we often make “typos” and usually say nothing, but we had too on this one.

Question:

Why do we drive on a different side of the road than England?  Is it our way to say “in your face” to England?  After all, they once did own us a long time ago.  They also have many “round-a-bouts” and we have recently started using “round-a-bouts”, probably because it’s been found that traffic moves faster when a “round-a-bout” is in use.

Statement:

In some of our posts talking about the Vatican and or the Catholic Church, because we have our own belief system, we did not realize the impact the recent abusing of children by priests had on devoted Catholics.  The following link is from someone who is a devout Catholic and when we read her words, we could feel her pain, and they brought tears to our eyes.  Please read and join us in praying for a healing of the Catholic Church. The site is “Beauty Beyond Bones” (<<<click on name) and we like all the articles.

Statement:

Netflix is the greatest thing since sliced bread.  We have recently started watching Netflix and the variety of programs is HUGE and we even have discovered what people mean by “binge watching”.  So far we have “binge watched” “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and “Magic for Humans”.  We have several others picked out, but we continue to check out other programs, especially the travel programs.  We have partially “binge watched” various stand up comics and have discovered that Dave Chappell is not for children’s viewing.  One thing we have learned about magicians is that when they do a trick, rather than attempting to figure out how they did it, we now know the answers is “they used magic.” (Saves brain cell space)

Statement:

Continuing with Netflix we watched one of our all time favorite people, David Lettermen has a show called “My Next Guess” and the first show is David interviewing President Obama and it was great.  We have found our minds are becoming more open by watching interviews of people we only know by names in the news.  Perfect example is Jay-Z.  We only know that Jay-z is a rapper and married to Beyonce.  That’s about it.  After watching David interview Jay-z we have become huge fans, not of his rapping, but of the human side of Jay-z.  Everything he talked about was right in line with what we believed.  We were surprised and happy all at the same time.  What and awesome person and it’s great to see there are forward thinking people out there changing our world.  Namaste Jay-Z.

Statement:

Netflix is the greatest thing since sliced bread >>>>>because the programs are commercial free!  We are already in “heaven” and now this is a perk.  We thank The Universe for creating someone who created Netflix.

Statement:

Tiger wood is back !!!

Venting:

People of the United States of American please VOTE in NOVEMBER!!  If you’re not in the USA, then call the people you know in the USA and tell them to vote please.  If you are not in the USA and don’t know anyone in the USA then have the greatest month of November ever and thank you for coming to our post.

Of course we thank everyone for stopping by and taking the time to read our posts.  God bless all of our Twitter followers and  Blog Subscribers.

We have nothing to else to report at this time except to say “Virgie – you will always be our favorite Auntie!”

Belief System – Moving Along Enjoying Each Moment

When we started our serious approach to our spiritual path we heard of a book named “A Course in Miracles”, so we read it and did not even come close to understanding it.  We talked with many that had read it and just plain “got it”.  So we read it again with the same result, so we turned to Marianne Williamson at that time was doing interpretation of The Course in Miracles for some clarity.  She solved what we were looking for and one thing we remember most is her saying “A miracle is a simple as changing thought or perception” (Or something close).  To some this looks like a cliché, but in fact this simple statement is powerful.  At that time being a rookie, we believed that changing a thought or perception was going to be difficult, mainly because our mind was usually spinning out thoughts like a machine gun.  So right off, we changed the “difficult” to “an experienced that we will remember always and have fun doing it.”  To this moment it still holds true and we now are getting down deeper into our “archives” for those thoughts inbred through many lives.  Meditation allows us to get deep and get clear so we can explore the caverns and “dark” closets from long ago.  This is something we do every day and love the surprises we discover.

All this mainly consists of when people told you “you can’t”, “you’re not good enough”, “you should”, “you’re too skinny”, “you’re too fat”, “you will never”, etc.  We are sure you know what we are talking about because we believe it happens to everyone when you’re young or even in some cases older.  Those “tapes” playing over and over in you’re head that came from negative remarks from long ago.  Even now when we hear someone say, “You are too old to do that”. Because we know ourselves and know that “limits” are illusions. This is probably coming from a person who is projecting their beliefs toward us and we usually smile and say “We believe there are no limits in doing anything a person chooses to follow”.  We believe anything negative can be turned around to see the positive side.  Maybe a conversation with the “you are too old” person describing our beliefs will change their thoughts to the positive and then we all enjoy a “Miracle”.

When we said “Began our serious approach to spirituality” we meant that most of the time from when we were born in to this life until the early 90’s we were just living life as we went along experiencing everything fully.  Even when we had the NDE we thought that we were lucky to survive because we can’t swim a stroke and the fact that the boat was overloaded and nobody else drowned was because someone was watching over us.  That’s about as spiritual we got back then.  In the early 90’s we seem to meet several people who meditated and we into a spiritual path and liked what we felt as far as energy being a common factor.  (We always believed that everything happens for a reason)  This is when we got serious about our path.  Once we started it seems like we were speeding down our path at break neck speed and so many choices of directions to take.  Meditation was a huge tool we used to determine our choices and after about a year we slowed down and relaxed a bit.  So we zoomed down the mountain and we hit the plateau and now it was time to enjoy everything we learned to this point and get ready fro another “zoom”.  This is kind like how it’s been since then.  We have “zooms”, and then “relax time”.  There have bee times when we stared to get impatient about getting to another “zoom” and we has our “DUH” moment and figured out that we choose to be patient from now on.  Then “zooooooooooooooooooooooooom” off we went.

The patience was huge for us and now we see that the patience is a major part of being peaceful.  Way back when we wanted to experience everything now, and now we know that was a recipe for disappointment.  The less here for us and still is “We don’t expect anything.  So if something happens and we notice then we are surprised and sharing the surprise with The Universe.  If nothing happens then we continue moving along our path.”

Even now we are constantly noticing the “little stuff” like when we smile at someone and their frown turns to a smile and maybe a thank you.  A Humming Bird stops at our window and hovers and we think “how amazing” this bird is and we smile.  Just looking out our window at the tree about a block away with the limbs blowing back and forth in the wind making it look like the tree is dancing. As we focus on it we think about what a great world we are experiencing at this moment.

We have nothing else to report at this time (Time does not exist) except to thank all our subscribers and on other platforms our followers.

God Bless all of you and have a great day!  You may not know right now, but we, yes we are going to (Have already started) change the world and make it a better place for you and me.  (Hey that sounds like a song…..)

Belief System / Group Healing of John McCain

We are huge believers in group healing and healing from long distance.  Today “out of nowhere” we started thinking about John McCain, who is currently a U.S. Senator representing Arizona, and was once a P.O.W.  My Dad was a P.O.W. in WWII and we were thinking about him and thinking about doing a post about when we were with him in his last days.  So maybe my Dad made this request and even though we have never done a post about healing a specific person, this seems very important.  John was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017 and is currently being treated.

If you are reading this post could you please over the next few days take a minute or two and think of John and say a quick prayer or send some healing energy to John.  We will be doing a long distance Reiki Level II “send” of healing energy at 9:30 PM PST tonight, and tomorrow night.  If you see an American Flag when you are out and about this weekend, please think of John.  He has served this awesome country for decades and if anybody is the ultimate Patriot, it would be John McCain.

We thank you for taking the time and we are send you many blessing because we know you guys are all great folks and care.  Any OBSOW’s reading this thank you and many blessing coming your way.

We have nothing to add right now except to say yo all of you NAMASTE!

Belief System / Healing / Transforming #1

We have always believed that we as part of The Universe can heal and or transform ourselves.  We create our lives and sharing the creation is why we are here.  We learned Reiki so that we could heal ourselves using the energies provided to us by The Universe and wisdom of others we meet along the way.  We do from time to time perform Reiki Healing Sessions on others, but because Reiki Level II allows the sending of energy over long distances, we are often sending healing energy throughout the world and upon request, to individuals asking for healing.

Meditation can be used also for healing.  Right now as we create this post we are listening to a You Tube video “ 285 Hz | Immune System Boost | Heals and regenerates tissues |”.  Back when we first started meditating the sound vibrations were not available like they are now.  This adds a great level to healing in our opinion because it gets deep into our DNA level.  Using visualization, color, and sound gives a much more powerful result and some of the videos say “this video gets to your DNA”.  Yes folks, we can and will heal ourselves and others as our spiritual growth grows and we share the growth.

In our April 30th post of “Belief System / Spiritual Tools / Books” we mentioned a five volume set of books named ‘Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East.”  In volume 1 page 30 we found a description of how we can transform ourselves to grow young instead of old.  We started practicing the following recently and if you chose to join us on this journey we welcome all.

“Age is but a shell within which lies the gem of reality – the jewel of youth.”

Practice acquiring the consciousness of child-hood.  Visualize the Divine Child within.  Before falling asleep suggest to your consciousness, “I now realize that there is within me a spiritual joy-body ever young, ever beautiful.  I have beautiful, spiritual mind, eyes, nose, mouth, skin – the body of the Devine Infant, which now, tonight, is perfect.”  Repeat this affirmation and meditate upon it quietly while falling asleep.  Upon rising in the morning suggest to yourself aloud, “Well dear (addressing yourself by name), there is a divine alchemist with-in.”  By the spiritual power of these affirmations during the night a transmutation takes place and the unfolding from within, the Spirit, has saturated this spiritual body and spiritual temple.  The inner alchemist has cause dead and worn-out cells to fall and the gold of new skin to appear with perpetual health and loveliness.  Truly divine love in demonstration is eternal youth.  The divine alchemist is within my temple, constantly coining new and beautiful baby cells.  The spirit of youth is within my temple – this humane form divine, and all is well. Om Santi!  Santi! Santi! (Peace!  Peace!  Peace!)

There is more that talks about learning to smile like a child and affirm “Within me there is a perfect form – the form Divine.  I am now all that I desire to be. I visualize daily my beautiful being until I breathe it into expression!  I am a Divine Child; all my needs are being now and forever supplied!”

We have nothing to add at this time except to say thank you all for supporting our site and to happily enjoy “The jewel of youth” with you.

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 – Misc Stuff

Right off we want to say to the reader that anything we say here take with a grain of salt.  We are sharing our experience and if something we say doesn’t sit well with you then forget it or figure out a different way of doing something. For example, when we first started reading about meditation most of the “so-called experts” said to sit cross-legged, back straight, head tilted slightly done, hand in lap, and thumb and point finger touching.  This position made my back hurt after several minutes, or we would be concentrating on keeping a correct position that we could not focus.

“Our #1 suggestion – your meditation position is whatever position you feel comfortable in.”

I changed to sitting in a chair with my feet planted on the floor and my arms where they felt good, usually on my lap. My feet on the floor gave me grounding and if we were passing healing energy through our body we made sure to send some healing energy to mother earth through our Foot Chakra.  Mother Earth gets enough abuse by the inconsiderate anti-earth people she can use all the healing energy we can send. Most of the time we place my hands open on my upper legs so to complete a “circuit” of energy flow. These days we are usually sending energy throughout our body or to someone else who has asked for some Reiki Healing Energy.  If you’re not using energy then just get comfortable, even by laying down.  There are no rules, nothing is etched in stone.  If you wish to hang from a chandelier, then hang from the chandelier if that makes you comfortable.

The videos we post are to be used as assistance to your meditation.  We focus on the sound and choose to become one with the sound when fully focused. Which means the sound is effortlessly flowing though our body along with the energy we are sending.  If the video distracts you then don’t use it.  When we first started we focused on the flame of a candle, or a light down up in the sky, or just about anything that caught our eye.  Or just close your eyes, it’s as simple as that. Visualization is a big part of some meditations so closing your eyes helps in the beginning.

Now sitting there reading this take a deep breath, no so deep you pass out, but a fairly deep breath.  When you let the breath out feel the tension in your body flowing out with your breath.  Breath in positive energy and sit for a few seconds enjoying the release of tension.  Then take another deep breath and let go more tension. Feel it gushing out of your body and enjoy the feeling.  No one more and this time get ride of the tension in your shoulders on the out breath.  Yes, feel it leaving and taking what was left out of your body.  Sit an relax.  Nice huh?  So out breath goes the negative energy and the in breath is positive energy (we use love).  This is the basics of a mindfulness meditation process.  Normally breath and focus on the in-breath and out-breath.  When we say focus you choose to get to a point where that is all that is, your breath in and out.  We call this “being in the moment, nothing else exists.  The past and the future are illusions and this is our only reality.” We are deep in to our soul level and totally at peace with all there is.  Starting out you might not get deep in, but practice the breathing.  If during the breathing a thought come to mind.  Notice the thought, sit with it, because you know it will pass shortly as most thoughts do, and when it passes continue breathing.  If it does not pass, what we do is talk to it.  Yes we talk to the thought basically to recognize it or some might say to honor it.  Our purpose is determine why it is visiting us and just about every-time once we determine why it moves on and does not come back.

This is how we handled all the urges to smoke when we quit smoking.  The thought was an urge to smoke based on a certain event, and we basically greeted the urge and said to the urge “We usually go smoke a cigarette when you come along but today we are going to continue our breathing meditation.  You are welcome to hang around, but we will not pay any attention to you.”  After a few seconds the urge would pass and the next time the same event that triggered the urge came along we did not get the urge to smoke.   (It’s been 4 years and 10 months since our last cigarette)  See out quit smoking post for more.

This is all for today and we urge you all out there in cyber-land to practice every chance you get.  If you are driving be sure not to close your eyes, but you can still breath and when the police pull you over for swerving and have to take the DUI sobriety test, you can laugh at yourself BUT be sure to stay in the moment.

We hope all of you get something out of what we reported and we will be setting up our email soon so we can take questions or comments.  Love, Light, and Peace to all of you along with many blessings.

We have nothing else right now so “PEACE”.

Meditation – My Healing Experience

I have been meditating for over forty years and in the beginning it was fairly simple straightforward visualization sometimes to music or focus on an object.  Since then meditation has grown in acceptance and the availability to various types of meditation has also grown.  These days I have found that the best variety of meditation videos are on YouTube.com I subscribe to meditative Mind because their videos are unique and combine frequency, music, and color.  I believe that the frequency (Hz) is important because it gets down to the DNA Level of healing.  Before sound it more up to the person to visualize the movement of energy down to the DNA level.

Because we are a Reiki Level II Practitioner we found YouTube.com has some great Reiki Chakra clearing videos which include detail descriptions of each of the Chakra’s as the video plays.  We meditate on the chakra’s fifty percent of the time mainly because we have the experience of self-healing a five years ago when a question came up as to whether we would need Chemotherapy or not. I add two CT Scans and they saw nodules in my lungs small at first and then a little larger on the second scan. So they decided to wait three months and take another scan to decide the direction we need to go.  My doctor explained that after smoking for 50+ years this was common and that we should probably do some research on Chemo because he was leaning toward that as the result, not guaranteed, but strong possibility.  Form that day forward we did a Reiki meditation and prayed every night (3 months) until the day of the scan. I had the CT scan and the very next day my doctor called and I had to sit down to answer the call. I pick up the phone and the first this I heard was my doctor saying “You can fire me! You don’t need me anymore!”. I said “What!?” and he said “The nodules are all so small and some are gone since the last scan”.  He admitted that he was complete surprised but added that I had a 2% chance of this being the outcome.  After we finished dancing around our chair in total joy we now go for a check up every year and the results remain the same to this day.

Another instance was back in the late 80’s to the mid 90’s we had a several case of Panic Anxiety and were put on strong medication and we made up our minds that is was not going to be the norm for us and eventually we because medication free and we believe it was because we meditated every day for the last three years.

One other use of mindfulness meditation is on my post about quitting smoking. We use the meditation to get past the urges to smoke a cigarette and every time after that when the same situation came up the urge was gone.

We would strongly suggest learning Mindfulness Meditation  and we did at the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA. They teach based on Buddhism and it applies to mind, physical, and spiritual is every day use. They also have all their teachings in audio on their website at no charge.  Here is the link “Insight Meditation Center” the go to Audio Dhama.  There are some hospitals around the country that have Mindfulness Meditation courses available for a fee and Google has a free an on-line course and they actually have a Mindfulness Guru on staff (I want this job).

We feel so strongly about the importance of meditation that every Wednesday we are going to post a link to our favorite meditation.  Here is the link for this weeks choice:

All 7 Chakras Healing Meditation Music

We have nothing else to add at this time except that we share via “messages” the link to our fiends.
