Quit Smoking the Easy Way – Our Experience

xsmoking

***** If you are anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area where air is unhealthy because of the smoke in the air from the fires, and you smoke, please consider quitting because if you combine the two, your asking for bad times ahead.

I am happy to report that this coming January marks 6 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

Relieving Physical Pressure / Stress & Stuff

For about three years we have been feeling a physical pressure, and we noticed because this was when the last urges of smoking had passed and we were on our way to be a non-smoker.  By the way, it’s been five and ½ years we have not had a cigarette and at the 5 years mark we officially became a non-smoker.  Anyway, we initially thought the pressure was because we had gained a few pounds so we purchased some new pants and shirts.  This did help somewhat, but there was still something we could not pin point.  So we thought lets see where this goes because it’s not a life stopper.  Well, about six months ago we had “in your face” pressure and it started affecting our sleep so we became hell bent on figuring it out. Starting with some in depth meditations, which we did clear some negative energies, but did not get to what we were looking for.  So we decided to make a huge change in apparel and after sixty years of wearing briefs (Underwear) we ordered boxers.

Oh My God!!  FREEDOM!  We just received our order and as soon as we put on the boxers we knew this was it.  Fruit of the Loom we love you!!!  Walmart, you saved our life!!  Life is good my friends, yes it is very good.  Obviously we are easily pleased and that’s where we want to be.  When the little (HUGE) things make us happy we know we are going in the right direction.  Not only did we achieve comfortable underwear we cleans up some really deep down negative energy and constant wedgies.

Since we were on a roll we have been putting off a spiritual exercise that seemed to be a tough one, but when we went to the DMV we met two Buddhist Monks in the waiting area and discussed doing a silence retreat for several days.  Okay, your probably wondering what two Monks were in the DMV for?  They were there to get their “Real ID” that is required for everyone by 2010.  The fact that there were two monks and we happened to be there at the same time is a product of The Universe responding to our concerns.  So we did the retreat and it was beyond amazing.  The timing was perfect and we found out more about ourselves and where we are going on our journey.  When we completed it we felt much lighter because we released all the stuff that was hanging around deep down and replaced it with God energy.  We also did the meditations we have been talking about sending Mother Earth and the world God Energy.  Every time we overcome “fear” it works out amazing.  Yes, we forget, and eventually figure it out.  The biggest surprise was the Monks both had I-Phones.  We asked and they said they used Uber to get around.  They did show us some pictures from Tibet that was really cool.  We plan to go there in our next life.

We have received a few emails asking about what we mean about clearing the past.  For starters we suggest you turn on some meditation music that will get you relaxed, and start a visualization where you start thinking about every time in you past where you got pissed (Mad) at someone or pissed off someone because of your action.  If someone pissed you off, then forgive them, sincerely forgive them.  If you pissed off someone, then ask their forgiveness and know that they forgive you.  Now when you start it will be easy remembering most, but as you progress you might start thinking your almost done, and that is when you go deep down to that snot nosed little boy in first grade that always pulled you pony tail, that senior in high school that stood you up your freshman year, that time your brother short sheeted you, the nun in your second grade class that made you put you head on the desk for two hours because you were talking, those people in the elevator that laughed at you when you loudly farted, and be sure to both forgive and ask forgiveness from your parents overall.  This exercise will probably be ongoing for a long time and that is good.  Stuff will pop into you mind and you will become used to reacting to it.  As you do each, be sure to fill the area of guilt that you have released with love energy.  You will feel the lightness and notice the clarity in your mind as you continue.

There of course will still be stuff left behind and what we do is ask our guides or angels to remind us of those events. What we do with the memories that we wish to keep for future reference, is we put them in a “packed” area of our brain.  It’s like when we used to put files in “zip” files to compress the data so we can manage smaller files.  Same with the memories which are actually files of thoughts.  Like when mom kissed your boo-boo when you fell or dad gave you the thumbs up when you hit that home run, or when God smiles when you help that senior citizen across the street, stuff like that.

Above all, be sure to share all your experiences with others and create that connection that we all are here for.  Like one of our teachers always told us, “Have fun with it.”  After we received our Reiki Level II initiation we noticed increased energy and when driving we would stare at the car in front of us.  We would zero in on the driver and see if we could get them to turn their head to the left, or go for the toughie, get them to look up.  Just have fun.

We have nothing else to report except to thank all of our friends and all of you who are participating in the “Mother Earth” Meditation Project.  We are making progress.  By the way have you noticed that the Vatican has NOT addressed the issue in PA?

The Weather Channel and Pharmaceutical Commercials –Review

Weather Channel

Way back when the Weather Channel was first on cable it was 24/7 forecasting, but that has changed.  Just the other night the wind was blowing hard so we went to the Weather Channel to see what the heck was going on.  What we got was a show about how volcanoes were going end the world, followed by how the rising oceans were going to end the world, followed by how the wind was going to blow buildings over and cause massive damage.  Then after all the “end of the world” shows there were six “Highway through Hell” episodes.  So if we are ever in Canada and stuck in a snow-storm we know who to call.  It looks like from 5:00 PM to 2:00 AM there isn’t any weather forecasting, it’s just “Weather gone viral, Tornado Alley, Raging Nature,” and other various none forecasting shows.  At 2:00 AM it’s “AMHQ Early, AMHQ”.  At 6:00 AM it’s Weather Center Live, and at 2:00 PM it’s Weather Underground until 5:00 PM.  (This is today’s schedule).

The Weather Underground is not like the structured Weather Center Live, it’s more like a leisure variation with casually dressed group of meteorologists in a casual environment attempting to make weather entertaining.  The Weather Center is structured with guys in suits and ladies in dresses, some of which are a bit short and this must be an attempt to make weather more sexy and entertaining.  The only time it becomes full time weather forecasting is when a super hurricane is about to destroy Florida and the entire east coast of the US.  This is when they have people on site and reporting that the “storm surge” is what kills most people even though it’s not a great idea to be out and about in 175 MPH winds. (Basically stating the obvious for hours) When this happens if you live west of the east coast you will not see any forecasting until the super hurricane named “Bellatrix” has run its entire route up the east coast.  Even though they tell you not to go out into the storm they have people placed in “key” areas along the route, and sometime the “key” areas are a not so important.

We are guessing that all the phone “apps” for getting the weather have basically replaced the good ole weather channel reporting.  Every News channel has an app that includes weather and just about anything related to weather.  So maybe sometime in the future we will be seeing the folks on the weather channel doing a song and dance weather forecasting routine.  This would be great for the students that take meteorology for a major in college and a minor of theater arts. Just a few minutes ago we tuned in on The Weather Underground and they were playing a game to match weather subject to mainstream song titles. So as California burns down with raging forest fires along with several other states with the same issues, and massive evacuations are underway, the Underground Weather folks are playing games. (Bet if a hurricane popped up they would be hustling to report it) Maybe the loser gets sent to Antarctica for their next assignment?

Just like the saying goes “everything changes” and amazing it is with the weather people having the latest and greatest technical devices for forecasting they are being replaced by other forms of technical communication across the world.

Pharmaceutical Commercials

Have you ever though about how much cheaper our drug would be if these Pharmaceutical companies would halt the pill commercials?  They run these commercials giving a list of symptoms of what the particular pill is for and the list includes symptoms of about a thousand other illnesses.  That’s in the first 15 seconds and then the last 45 seconds is what the side effects could be and one we heard had a side effect of death!  Yes death!  Who the heck would risk death to cure athlete’s foot?  Then at the end of the commercial they say “Ask your doctor”.  There are some that say “Be sure to tell your doctor if you have had a liver transplant, heart transplant, your middle finger sewn back on, your right eye looks in the opposite direction of your left eye, you had a sex change, you broke your back and they fixed it by surgically implanting a Lego, your blood test comes back without a type, your antennae’s on your head were surgically removed, and your ears were sewn back on upside down.”  If your doctor doesn’t know your history then we don’t think you need to be acting like your know more than your doctor.  Here is a spoof of a commercial for Movantik <<<<<<CLICK HERE >>>>>>>

We saw a special once about these commercials and they included that once a pill sales start to diminish, they re-name the pill and give it new symptoms’ and start a new campaign.  Supposedly the government watches out for this.  We know that the medication we took to help us stop smoking was originally for heart attack patients with depression and then when they found it to help quit smoking the cost was quadruped and they started promoting it as a quit smoking medication.

Maybe when the entire country makes marijuana legal most illnesses will magically go away. It’s already been found to cure “trumpitis” and several other political ailments.

We want to thank everyone for their support and thank you for stopping by.  Many blessings too all of you and please stay safe and if your not “regular” then try some “Movantik” (See above).

We have nothing to add at this time but we found Olive Oil to be a cure all.

Belief System – Anxiety Feeling

Hope all of you enjoyed the Memorial Day Weekend.  For some reason we felt anxious this morning and then we noticed the feeling of anxiety, which is to us is one of the sneaky feelings we get.  Anxiety could be a result of fear or it can be a result of an upcoming happy event like looking forward to going on vacation.  Ether way, it takes us out of being in the moment because we start attempting to figure out why we feel like this.  In today’s case we believe its The Universes was of telling us this should be our next post and so here we are and we no longer feel anxious. (Thanks Universe).

We discussed our Panic / Anxiety Attacks in previous posts so if you are having these attacks we strongly suggest you call your primary care doctor and discuss this or if you don’t have a primary care doctor, call your local hospital and get a referral (This is what we did).

If you fear going to the dentist because you just know that you have 20 cavities and that he is going to lecture you on your tooth care.  Then when he gets you in the chair and straps you down and tells you’re to open your mouth, wider, and inserts those rubber inserts that keep your mouth open you know that he is going to whip out that 3 inch drill and drill down through your tooth into your jaw.  So that’s your story.   Our story is we only go to dentists that administer gas or back in the days of Indiana we went to a dentist that gave us Valium. Te down side to Valium was we needed to take a driver but the upside was once we were in the chair the dentist could have pulled all our teeth and we would not have cared.  So with the fear comes anxiety the closer your appointment gets.  When you go tell the doctor about your fear, we are sure he will understand and want to make you comfortable.  We have seen local commercials from dentists stating that if you afraid they will use gas or whatever makes you feel better.

Then there is the “Dentist from Dental Hell” whom we had when we were in high school and he was our braces dentist.  He would come in smelling like he had just smoked a pack of cigarettes, in a grumpy mood, and we knew that if we moved in the chair he would tap us with that little rubber hammer.  Yes, a tap right on our third eye area of our forehead.  We prayed every night that our teeth would get straight faster than humanly possible.  (We survived)

Of course if you’re a smoker you are in a constant state of anxiety.  Do you have enough cigarettes to last until tomorrow?  Does the restaurant have a smoking area?  It cigarettes cost much more we won’t be able to afford them. Every place they go they plan ahead based on smoking.  They are also constantly thinking about quitting but putting it off until a later date.  Will the next cigarette be the one to cause cancer?  This is called addiction.  Please ask your doctor for help to quit. Your grand-children will thank you later in life.

Yes anxiety is a sneaky and if you’re impatient, then you know how it slithers into your head.  That White Rabbit in Alice and Wonderland was anxious, so if you can relate to that rabbit, then you’re impatient and not living in the moment.  (Meditate or catch the rabbit, the exercise will be good)

Anxieties change and the years roll by.  If we were forced to say what our current fear is we would say getting into one of those driver-less cars.  We identify those cars and as soon as you enter the car you become a “Lab Test Rat”.  Read the news?  Tesla cars are constantly crashing when in “auto-mode”.  After being software developer for fifty years we know that they can not possible write software for every possible scenario and we don’t want to be riding in one of those “death traps” when that scenario comes in to play.  So our solution is, “If a human isn’t driving we are not riding”.  Not even if they offer Valium.

There are so many possibilities of that sneaky anxiety sneaking in that when we notice that we are not in the moment, we do a meditation.  Like right now we are listening to this <Meditation in progress>  and if you like Tibetan Bells then click on the link.

Because we make sure to keep our Chakra’s in balance we know that if we are “off” we stop and identify what it is causing this and 99% of the time its anxiety that got in though our spiritual armor.

We thank you for stopping by and reading this post. Now that we saved you tons of money you are spending on Valium, Baclofen, Xanax, Metaxalone, FlexePax, and a zillion other medicationss, please donate the money to St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis TN.

We have NOTHING else to add now that we are back in the moment and hopefully we have helped or reminded you that The Universe cares and Loves all of you.  Many Blessings my friends and enjoy every moment because we are experiencing it together.  (Did you notice that “nothing” is in caps?)

Belief System – Reincarnation / Soul Groups

We are going to start with a question about belief systems that believe that you are born, live a good or bad life, and then die and go to the Pearly Gates  to be judged.  Then you either go to heaven or hell for infinity.  Our question is what do you do in heaven or hell for infinity?  We would think you can only hang around with angels for maybe a few hundred years before they get boring and you look for other things to do.  All the Archangels spots are taken so there is no moving up.  So it’s basically a one way trip into heaven and there is no getting out.  Just think about how many souls are stuck in limbo in heaven.  Given a soul does not take up very much space, but countless souls from the beginning must take up a few galaxies?  We think that after total boredom sets in a soul realizes that God gave us “free choice” so they make a choice to go elsewhere and eventually back to another life or back to some planet that is accepting new life.

We believe in reincarnation and always have.  It’s the only way to evolve spiritually by experiencing everything in this universe and all other universes.  You don’t always return from the other side as a human, but you always return as a living entity.  It your choice what you wish to return as because only your soul knows what is required to further grow spiritually.  We are going to use planet Earth as our sample planet, but there are trillions or other planets you might decide to go back to.

When you come back to the other side after completing a life, you usually take it easy and debrief for a few years before deciding what you wish to return for another life.  You can immediately return, if you choose, and if there is a Soul Group looking for what you wish to return as, you can join and go with the group.

So this takes us to what a Soul Group is.  A Soul Group is several souls that agree to various “roles” that will interact with each other.  Let’s say you want to experience being a father, married with a large family.  You find other souls that wish to be the mother and the children of your family.  Of course, you return as a baby and when you finally mature you will be looking for the other players (Unknown to you), you just feel it.  The size of a Soul Group does not have a limit and could be spread al over the planet.  We were once in a Soul Group that consisted of several trillion souls because we were all returning as blades of grass, specifically for the fairway of a golf course.  Some went as the “green”, but the majority was for the fairway.  So sometimes the Groups are huge, but when it consists of humans, dogs, cats, or any other animals it’s usually a few hundred thousand.

As each soul grows spiritually all the souls in your group grow spiritually, so sometimes we grow rapidly.  We can say in this life we have met hundreds of the souls we came back with.  When we meet a complete stranger and after chatting for a few minutes we get the feeling that we have know the person all of our lives and we have a conversation that seems to a continuation of a previous conversation.  You ever had this experience?  We think yes and you may have wondered about it because it made you very happy.  When we were doing Uber it seemed like every ride was with a soul from our group, all 800+ riders.  We think because as you grow spiritually and your vibration actually attracts other souls with the same vibrations (Like minded).  We had some great conversations and learned many lessons and hopefully shared our learning with others.  Even now, when we use Uber to get around we meet drivers that fit the same scenario and it all just reinforces that we are all one and we are here to share our experiences with others. We think that some of our group has already returned to the other side and even then, our growth here still reflects back to them. In some cases they stay in the other side, but become our spirit guides and assist on our training here on earth.

Usually when we give you a specific example it’s easier to understand.  We might have talked about reincarnation in a different post, but the following example is when we initially came back to earth and were being born.  We had a twin brother that was going to be born with us, but he changed his mind at the last second and did not wish to return yet, so he was still born.  We were never told about the twin because we were in a family where my mom did not want to talk about such things.  We always felt something was missing, but could not figure out what it was.  Then when we were in our early twenties we had an opportunity to get channeled by a man named Roy and he was a priest from Canada who traveled all over making money for his church and he came to us highly recommended.  Since we have not experienced being channeled we were skeptical, but once we met Roy and he explained that he would be channeling our spirits from the other side and only the ones that wanted to come forward.  Roy also made sure to record the session.  Roy then when into a “trance” like position, his voice changed when the first spirit came forward and we started.  The spirit identified himself as my brother.  So we asked “The brother I lost when I was seven years old?”.  The spirit said “no not that brother, the brother you were born with, but was still born because I did not wish to be born yet.  My name would have been Andrew”.  We said that we did not know of any brother that we were born with, but we would for sure find out after we leave here.  Many other spirits came forward and then all of a sudden we were done.  The “twin” was on our mind big time so when we left we went directly to my aunts’ house.  This aunt was my mother’s closest sister and when we entered he house we said hello and asked her “How come Mom did not tell me about the twin brother we were born with that was still born?”  The look on my aunt’s face completely changed and her eyes got big and her mouth dropped open and then she said loudly, “Who told you about that?  You were never supposed to know!  Don’t tell your mom you know!  Please never!”.  We said we would never mention it and we were not going to say who told us.  We left.  Needless to say we were blown-a-way!  When we returned home we immediately meditated specifically to bring our twin into our life as a spirit guide and we would be calling him Drew.  He has been with us every moment since then and we converse via thoughts. Something we have always said to Drew is if for any reason you wish to leave and come back with a group you let us know and because we love you we want you to be happy.  He always says, “We are part of each other and we shall continue this path together, bro. “, yeah, he said “bro”.  We smile.

We welcome any questions any of you out there would like to ask via email.  Just make sure you <re:  Belief System Reincarnation>”.  Remember this subject is our opinion and we are just like everyone else, a soul going though a life sharing our experiences.

We are dedicating this post to Erin, PhD, CBSM because this post came to us when we last saw her.  Erin actually saved our life about five years ago when we went into a very deep depression and she took the time to bring us from the dark to the light.  We consider Erin to be for sure, in our current soul group and many others.  We look forward to seeing her often because she doesn’t preach or say “you need to do this or that”, she has a way during a conversation to get our mind simulated.  We give he credit for much of our spiritual growth and send many blessing to her and her awesome family.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to continue our prayers to the victims and families of the Santa Fe High School shooting last week.  We send our prayers out to all of you and thank you for supporting our posts.  Many blessings.

Belief System / Monday – Get Rid of Toxins and Negativity

We woke up today and after our daily “Mantras to start your Morning – Become Calm and Peaceful Inside“,), which we do everyday and on Monday we make sure to do another meditation afterwards.  This is because of the weekend and with all the negative influences that all of encounter through the TV News, smart phones, tablets, Desk Tops, Radio AM/FM, Smoke Signals, soup cans connected with string, whispers, Hand Signals, Signal Flags, Telegraph, FAX, Walkie Talkies, News Papers, Messages in the Sand, and Thought Transfers.  So this morning we just felt “off”.  Kind of like the Universe is out of sync or tilted.  So we decided that we would look at a strong meditation that would remove negative energy at a deep level in our soul.  So we went to the Negativity Mediation we posted March 29, “Meditation – Practice, Practice, Practice”.  To ensure we were getting the maximum out of this we used the You Tube Video “741 Hz | Get Rid of Toxins and Negativity “. This one digs deep down to inside our soul and gets rid of the “icky gooey tar like negative energy” and we focused on removing this glob with the help of several angels and refilling the empty space with God Energy and LOVE Energy.

We felt so good afterwards that we started send the awesome energy out to everyone and including the reader of this post (Feeling it?), We even are sending long distance to our friends all over the world.

We hope all of you that read our last post are feeling younger today.  We started using it every night before bed and every morning when we wake up.  This is a perfect case where the book we found the recipe for getting younger in Book #1 and that was all we saved before moving on to Book #2.  We are reviewing several books we read over 20 years ago that has a huge impact on our belief system, but because the energy was very different back then, we have modified most of the writings.

One this still in common is that we are all ONE with everything that is and ever will be, and this includes this planet, our galaxy, and all galaxies and planets throughout infinity.  We are including “Aliens”, which is a word we really don’t like because its meaning denotes separation and because e are all one, we are not separated.  We will no use a new term “Our brothers and sisters from other worlds”, “OBSOW”.  We have to tell you the reader that when we typed this we are having a strong feeling of “Deja vu”.  When we get this feeling it tells us that we are on the correct path for of our spiritual journey and because the feeling is “like we have been here before” it is reinforced because it ha been written in The Universal Order of Spiritual Guides.

Okay back to OBSOW some of which have been around for 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 + years and have developed ways to cruise around all over the galaxies.  They have even merged with other OBSOW’s and found our tiny little planet after several billion years after our “Big Bang” when the planet was cooled off and a beautiful place to live, but it was empty.  So they decide to start an experiment and created an atmosphere on the planet that would introduce the creation of living things and they left with the intention of coming back in a few billion years.

We have nothing else to add right now but we will be continuing the “OBSOW” line of thought because this is a special part of our Belief System and we will share with everyone interested.  Might even get into some “Arc of the Covenant”, “Holy Grail” stuff and some little other know events.

Thank you for supporting out posts everyday and God Bless each and everyone.  By the way, if anyone know the answer to this >> CLICK HERE <<  Please let us know.

Beer Belly Karma

The people who have known me my entire adult life as 6′ tall 150 lbs. 32″ waist, I was so skinny that when I had hair curled and turn sideways my x-mother-in-law gave me the nickname of “Q-Tip”.

When going out with friends we used to go out to the bars and when we saw a guy with a beer belly we used to crack jokes like “His belly is so big, he had to have a strap of Velcro surgically implanted so he could keep his pants up!”  or “He had a bar of lead implanted in his ass so he would not fall forward for the weight of that enormous belly!”. In those days of hitting the bars in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago there were plenty of beer belly dudes that provided us with hours of laughter.

Then five years ago when I quit smoking food started tasting great.  Most people think that when you  quit smoking you turn to food to replace the cigarettes, and some probably do but not me.  Every piece of food tasted like a feast the most delicious tid-bit.  After six months to celebrate quitting smoking we went to “Sundance – The Steakhouse” in Palo alto.  I all my years of looking for the finest steak, this is where it was found.  we have been here before and we thought it was awesome, but now that food was tasting great, we wanted to go back and the meal was beyond awesome.  It verged on being a orgasmic experience and when we were done I wanted to smoke, but instead I did my Mindfulness Meditation to get past the urge to smoke.  Yes folks, everything tasted better even my favorite junk foods like Gold Fish, Lays Potato Chips (Original), M&M’s, Cheeto’s, Doorito’s, and Frosted Flakes became my go to breakfast food.

The 32″ waist is now 36″. Yes the Karma kicked in and we needed a new wardrobe.  No Velcro or lead bar, but the belt is now one of those that is easily sized.  I tell my friends that I look like I am pregnant, we even got one of those maternity T-Shirts with the arrow pointing down.  Its our way of bringing smiles when walking down the street.

So to all those beer belly guys we made fun of back in the day, we apologize for the comments, and we thank you for the laughs.  There is one beer belly we still make fun of, not because of his belly, its because he is the moron running our country.  His side silhouette is hilarious.

We have nothing else to report except our dating site scam tip is “If the lady is telling you that she is on a mission with UNICEF overseas somewhere in Africa” then lock down your wallet, because she is about to ask you for food money “because she is getting sick from the food provided and needs to buy different food and because she is a volunteer she does not get paid until she gets back home”

Got it! Scam!  Oh you say, “I will send you a check.”, she says, “No, it has to be cash”, so you say “I will FedEx it to you.”,  she says, “No FedEx here, you need to do a bank transfer to my bank account”.  If you do what she says the get ready to be wiped out of your retirement, savings account, and lose your house, wife, kids, car, motorcycle, your girl friend, your mistress, your membership to the country club, and KKK, and everything you have worked for your entire life.  The good news is you can still be a Trump supporter.

Think about it, you are chatting to what you think is a little cutie telling you that you are handsome and sexy, she is sending you sexy pictures, and tells you that as soon as she gets back you will meet and the sparks will fly. In reality you are talking to a guy is a sweat shop somewhere in the world that when he asks you a sexual question and you answer he sends your response to the big screen in the room and everyone laughs at you. Is it worth it?

To all our new followers and soon to be new followers we say Namaste and we hope you get a laugh or two from our posts.  We thank you for staying with us during the good times and the not so good times, which are good times, because this is where we learn and grow. We grateful for everyone and everything in this awesome universe we are all part of.

The nothing staff wishes all says thank you!

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:

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

Opera Browser Review and other AAN stuff

My long vacation is over an it’s time to report on what we have been doing and the many interesting places we have been both on-line and off. I have been screwing around with Firefox and Chrome both of which pissed me off so we read about Opera and so far we find it to be perfect for our needs.  We are on it now and so far so good.

We have been living on Twitter for several months supporting the anti-Trump folks and pushing for the #calext (California becoming its own country) proposition. We like #calexit because the point is we don’t want some moron like Trump determining our present and future.  We also have been organizing the Reiki folks world wide to send healing energy to the victims of the recent hurricanes and earthquakes. I once lived in Florida and would not go back, but the folks there have taken a beating and we care.

Recently we discovered that several dating sites contain hundreds of scammers of various types and we have names and will be doing some blogs on what we experienced and solutions. Right now if you are on a dating site and the person you are talking to lives in Ghana and they are asking you for money to get a new cell phone or some other expense then they are probably a scammer. Google “Ghana scammers” and look on YouTube you might just see something disturbing.

We are happy to say that we are still smoke free and have helped other to become the same way. Motto “Smoke cigarettes is like holding a gun to your head and pulling the trigger on a gun that shots a slow moving bullet.” You will suffer and your family will suffer right along with you.

We still watch So You Think You Can Dance, Deadliest Catch (Less), Americas Got Talent (Addicted to Heidi), Pawn Stars, every Golden State Warriors game (Eat your heart out Chicago), every Raiders game, some 49’s games (they need to win us back), The Voice (Less), X Factor, just to list a few.

We are also going to be reporting on some medical experiences that we have currently (Noting major) and have researched. We consider ourselves blessed that we did not have any issues other than shortness of breath after we quit smoking but what we found was he inherited one called Orthostatic hypotentension which has no cure but can e managed, and another called Polymyalgia Rhueumatica (PMR) and 20% of PMR patients have Temporal Arteritis and we are in the 20%.  Then for our followers who have met us here is a little tidbit that will probably make you smile. Between quitting smoking and the medications we have gained some weight after 65+ years at no higher than 150 we now weigh in at 190. At least we have leveled off here. (Hope you did not injure yourself when you fell off your chair Aaron). We must add that Stanford Hospital and The Stanford Medical Group have been beyond outstanding is every phase from the supporting staff to the amazingly talented doctors.

Of course there is more, but we have a craving for Cheeto’s and need to go find some.

We have nothing else to report except to say to everyone we hope you and your families are all well and we send you many blessings. We hold ourselves grateful having met so many great folks and knowing some very special people.
