Project Baseline – Make Your Mark on Map of Human Health

Several weeks ago we applied for Project Baseline link and to our delight we were accepted.  This is a research project that will monitor 10,000 people all over the United States for five years.  The main participants in the Bay Area are Stanford Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, Google, and Verily.  This coincides with our Universal Mission to make a difference in humanity and elevate the spiritual vibration of everyone we meet.  This is a win / win project.

Our first appointment was Monday and we had an awesome Uber Drivers named Robert.  Right off, it was like Robert and I had know each other forever and as we progressed along the route when we were on North 101 agreed that we were suppose to meet and had a great conversation.  We talked about how we were all connected and we discussed my Belief System which we have now named “Oneism”.  So if we use “Oneism”: you will know what we are talking about and the next post will be a reminder of what it means.

We arrived at the Project Baseline Stanford Office and we wished Robert a great Christmas.  We love to know about other peoples experience and Robert’s was really interesting.  The entire trip was a learning experience for both of us.

Prior to coming for our appointment Project Baseline had sent several email about what the first appointment was going to cover over the six to seven hours.  (Free lunch and it was great).  Christine (Fake name) greeted us.  I noticed that Christine looked like she was 14 years old and because we had to know, so we asked Christine is she was in her teens.  She laughed and said she was in her late twenties.  I said “you would be a tough date because you would be getting carded everywhere you went.”  Christine then explained that we would start by filling out several forms, like consent forms etc.  Then go do blood work, measure height and get weight, and other tests.  Then at the end of the day we went over the devices that they provided to take with us.  First the “smart watch” that is worn 24/7 and once a day we are required to take an ECG (We took it just now).  The watch has the time, date, and takes the ECG and that’s all.  Then at night we put the watch in a “charging dock” that sends the data, sync’s the watch, and charges it.  The other device is “Easy Sense live” which is a flat device that is placed under our mattress under where our heart would be when we are asleep.  This device streams data 24/7.  Once placed you are done.

At the end of the day Christine surprised us with a T-Shirt, water bottle, a very nice carrying bag, and folder to hold our brochures and devices to take with us.  Christine did mention that they are still looking for additional candidates in the Bay area so if your interested please go to this link >>> Projectbaseline.com <<<<<.   We must say that Christine was awesome and answered every question we had, was clear in explaining all the tests and documents, has a great sense of humor, and of course be the end of the day we had he doing Mindfulness Meditation and visiting this site.  Then there was Lisa who took an hour to go over our heath history from day 1.  All the operations we had since birth.  We of course discuss meditation and we told her about the “Insight Meditation Center” (Click on name for link) in Redwood City where we went to learn Mindfulness Meditation.  On the link is the schedule of classes and there is another link to all the teachings via audio.  You can read the description and listen to the teaching or download it and it’s all free.  There were other folks that we neglected to get their names, but we will follow up with getting their names on our next visit.  Everyone was awesome and we are looking forward to our next appointment.  The lady that did the breath test said her bull dog (Cute picture) was having an issue with her hip, so we asked her name and it is “Marlyn Monroe”. (Big laugh).  We volunteered to send some healing Reiki Energy to Marlyn.

Then it was time to go and we wished everyone seasons greeting and reinforced the need to meditate.  This time my Uber ride was with Dmitry who was Russian  and was in the USA for 3 years.  He and his family came here asking for and getting asylum because he was a dissident and was worried about his health in Russia.  The conversation started off slowly and we chatted as we progressed.  Then just when we started to cross the bay on RT-92 there was an accident on the bridge and we were re-routed to the RT-84 bridge which was almost back were we started.  So of course we said “Dmitry you know why this happened?  It’s because we are suppose to continue this conversation and discuss meditation.  Poof!  It was like old friends meeting after not seeing each other for many years. He even mentioned that usually the traffic is terrible this time of day (5;00 PM) but its like traffic is getting out of our way.  (We did not tell him that we sent out an intention to have our “Traffic Angels” to clear the way as needed).  We both agreed that we were suppose to meet and even though the possibility for a second ride was next to impossible, we might just meet again, because in our Universe nothing is impossible.

So that’s the end of the day and we could feel the great energy flowing from meeting all these amazing people.

Please if you out there in Cyber-land know of anyone that would like to volunteer for Project Baseline please send them to the web site. We are dedicating this post to Jane who we supported through her chemo and she has now become our hero.

We have nothing else to report except we now have a mission to meet everyone in our “Soul Group” (search site for definition).  In order for the Soul Group to flourish spiritually we need to meet everyone and others outside the group.  When we share we not only grow, but so does the group and the individual we are sharing with if they are not in our group.  This leads to the vibration of Mother Earth getting raised and this is another mission we are on.  We have asked on a prior post for people to send Mother Earth as much positive energy as possible.  Several folks are doing this, but we must add by getting out there and meet as many people as possible and report our experience here to share with all of you.

Thank you all for your support and we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019.

Namaste

My New (Updated) Eyes – A Medical Miracle

Stanford

This past January I finally decided that I needed to go see my eye doctor because I had recently purchased new glasses and my left eye vision was blurry to the point I could not clearly see objects more than five feet away, especially printed signs.  So off I went to my eye doctor.  Sure enough after the eye examination, the eye doctor said in my left eye I had an advanced cataract and in my right eye the beginnings of a cataract.  The doctor said she could “fix” the vision issue with new glasses, but I might as well get both eyes cleared of the cataracts because eventually they would need to be dealt with.

So I called my Stanford Primary Care Doctor and told her that I needed a referral to the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford to get the cataracts removed.  The very next day I received a call to set up an appointment to come in for an exam.  Their exam results were the same as what my eye doctor reported and they then started measuring my eyes for the eye surgery.  My eye doctor was Charles C. Lin, M.D. (Doctor Charles C. Lin Bio) and I discussed the results and scheduled a surgery when the measurements were completed.  Since they only do one eye at each session we scheduled the left eye first and then two weeks later the right eye.

During our discussion Dr Lin asked me what kind of eye implants I would prefer, wear glasses for close vision (reading) or for long distance.  I chose the reading glasses.  I must say I was surprised by the question and Dr Lin noticed so he said that my cataract surgery includes lens implants and that I would no longer need prescription glasses.  So I no longer needed to purchase the prescription glasses for about a thousand dollars, and instead I could buy the reading glasses for about 10 bucks in any pharmacy or food store.

So I went in for the surgery on my left eye which was an hour for pre-surgery, then the surgery that only took about 15 minutes, and then an hour for recovery.  Because I had not had any kind of surgery since the 1980’s I was a tad bit apprehensive but the Surgical Staff was awesome and understood. I was really taking it all up until they gave me the anesthetic prior to moving me to the surgery.  The only thing I remembered was during the surgery I noticed seeing awesome streaks of light in my left eye.  The streaks were all vivid colors and random movement.  I made a mental note to notice what kind of colors and patterns my right eye was going to be in two weeks.

Then it was off to recovery and since I was fasting for 18 hours I was looking forward to something to munch on.  I don’t remember many names but the recovery nurses name was Elizabeth and I remember because she said the magic words “Would you like some juice and graham crackers?”, which to me came across as “Would you like some wine with your steak dinner?”.  I assume it was the anesthetic plus the fasting that caused this reaction, but it sure was right on point.   Cranberry Juice and Graham Crackers never tasted so good.

Then they placed a shield over my left eye and said to wear during sleep it for a few days just to protect me from rubbing my left eye accidentally.  Done and home was the next stop.

The right eye surgery was the same schedule as the left eye.  I had a surprise during the pre-surgery when a male nurse came in to say that he was going to insert my IV and get me ready.  I told him that it was no problem when I was here a few weeks ago but usually it takes more than one try to get the IV in because I was told I have tough skin.  He smiled.  Just then a nurse came in and said she had some questions so I turn my head to the right and after about five minutes we completed the questions.  When I turned back I said “OK, let’s get the IV done.”  The male nurse said he was done and I was ready to go.  I was astonished and said “You got that IV in without me feeling anything?”  He said “sure did.”  I said “This was a first for me and I gave him the nick name of “IV Pro” and said that if I ever need a IV again I will hope he is on duty.”  So “IV Pro” wheeled me to surgery.

When I went to recovery it turns out Elizabeth was busy but “IV Pro” was there and asked if I wanted some Sprite and crackers and I said “That would be great”.  Once again I felt like I was at “The Sundance Steak House” having a great steak dinner. I then became an “IV Pro” Fan forever.

Also I did remember to notice the colors during the actual surgery on my right eye and it was different than my left eye.  During surgery on my right eye it was not lines, it was patterns of color.  The patterns were like checker boards and some lace, all as colorful as could be.

Now I have completed all my follow up appointments and both eyes are done and healed.  I now have 20-20 vision and I now see the medical miracle performed by Doctor Lin whom I now call the “Miracle Man”.  For the first time in 60+ years I can function without wearing glasses.  In fact I can’t remember not wearing glasses it’s been so long ago and I was down right giddy the first time I drove without glasses.  “Wow!”  This is awesome.  A miracle for sure!

So to the office and surgical staff at “The Byers Eye Institute at Stanford”, all the services you performed led up to the final “Medical Miracle” that Doctor Lin (Miracle Man) performed on both of my eyes.  I don’t have the words nor do I have enough space on this post to tell you all how grateful I am.  The “Get Well Soon” cards that you sent a few days after each surgery on both eyes was awesome and your dedication is heart felt.

We have nothing else to report except to say to all at the institute – Namaste
