    Michael had this to say on negative ions and how they help with (my) sleep and (my) True Rest. To get more even clarity, perhaps we should ask about them again. From a Private Live Chat on June 15, 2011: MEntity: In terms of True Rest, yes, there is always more one can do to bring that about. Our suggestions for True Rest, as part of your primary Pillars, can be of help, even if it is not obvious in effect, at first. In your case, reading something of value to you upon retiring is restful, as well as listening to the effects of wind (wind chimes, leaves, etc), and even hearing storms, can be restful. MEntity: All restful in a way that aligns Essence with Personality so that energy is used most effectively and restored. MEntity: These suggestions can be altered or extended to your liking, of course, so that, for instance, you are not sitting around waiting for a storm, but can listen to quality audio recordings and playbacks of a storm, or wind chimes. MEntity: One can also hang a small set of wind chimes within reach of key areas so that a quick brush or bump to them can emit the sounds that bring Rest. MEntity: Keep in mind that we are not talking about sleep here, but REST, which contributes to the quality of sleep, of course. MEntity: One can even conjure up a storm in the imagination as a means to bring about Rest. MEntity: For instance, the frustration that may come from lack of sleep can be turned into a beautiful, majestic storm of thunder and lightning so that the charge is "burned off," and True Rest can return. MEntity: Bringing an ionizing source into key areas of rest can also help, which is an extension of Storms and their physical effects on the atmosphere, which brings True Rest for you. MEntity: However, we suggest some research into the effects of ionization and the various sources for it, as the commercial elements related to this are quite messy. Maureen: Do you mean the actual physical elements in the ionizing equipment? MEntity: What we mean is that there are artificial sources of negative ions, and natural sources, and some are more effective and preferable than others, not only in general, but some may be preferred by you over others. MEntity: For instance, not all ionic air filters are designed well, and sometimes an increase in live plants can have a far greater impact on the quality of air and ions, and may be preferable. MEntity: Beeswax candles can provide effects that are similar to a "storm" when burned, as well as installed sources of the equivalent of sunlight, such as those used for terrariums and plants. MEntity: However, the sunlight equivalent may not be useful as an immediate contradiction to the ideas of a storm, but could go quite well with the sounds of wind chimes in an environment. MEntity: However you choose to implement these things, from what we have suggested, to what others are doing to help you, it would still do you well to have separate time for REST, that is not in the pressure zone of SLEEP. MEntity: The more REST that is a part of your day, which may require setting aside time just for that, like meditation, the more likely the benefit for actual sleep. MEntity: Combining our suggestions could provide rather surprising results: reading something of value to you, in the sunlight of the day, or during a storm, with the sounds of chimes nearby as ambiance. MEntity: The key would be in focusing on the part you enjoy the most at the moment: the sound? the material being read? and allow the rest to move around you, engulf you. MEntity: This is key, because it is part of the heart of your condition: that you cannot allow for distractions, but tend to focus on them. MEntity: These gentle forms of practice would do you well upon falling asleep, because your racing mind, or your racing cells, or your chattering heart can be left to do what they do, while you rest, while you sleep. MEntity: In addition to your conscious efforts, employing the substrata or unconscious elements through homeopathy and your other treatments could combine to bring great relief, eventually. MEntity: If all of this fails, you may be so exhausted from the various efforts, that you fall into sleep "naturally" after all. Maureen: LOL

    I don't care if my salt lamp emits negative ions or not. It's such a pretty and comforting light! You know what else I don't care about? Excercise. I wished he'd come the conclusion that the best way to energize oneself is by sitting on the couch. But ok. Excercise it is, then. πŸ™„πŸ˜‰

    Anna and IΒ΄ve had our share of musical adventures. I have written several songs for her. But check out this, not composition but arrangemang, of some Michel Legrand melodies. Dear Anna sings, I play the piano. Lovely, if I may say so myself.

    Wow. Just.... wow. I feel a deep appreciation for being able to witness and experience this. It is beautiful. My fiance and several friends are/were professional vocalists in classical compositions and I am moved every time I hear this great art. Thank you for sharing.

    Nadine, that last paragraph from you cracked me up! High Five on that one! LOL And I agree... I love my Salt Lamps for their ambiance more than anything, so no loss to me.

    OMG, Michael was onto this long before I found this video I just posted?? This is a subject I've never given a lick of thought to but it happened to be in my YouTube feed today, so I thought it was interesting! It always freaks me out and amazes when Michael casually mentions something like this. And now I see this guy in this video talk about how Negative Ion machines produce the equivalent of toxic smog as a byproduct. Yikes! I wonder if that is true of all Negative Ion machines. And Michael Entity rocks!

    Thank you Anna Elisa. It is such a treat to hear someone make those sounds with their voice, and you make them with such ease and pleasure. It is a privelege to hear someone sing with such care, mastery and beauty and passion. I will be listening to more of your songs.

    Very nice! I've played the Vier Letzte Lieder a number of times (in the orchestra), and though I love piano, I do miss the beautiful horn solo at the endπŸ˜‰

    I love my salt lamp. And my toddler does, too, since she makes a point to lick it every time she follows me into my room. πŸ˜•

    I have always been wondering about the salt lamp and this finally put it at rest Thanks for sharing @Troy I do agree with @Nadine though, the lamps are really pretty and comforting, I love the hue, it's very Hygge in my opinion

    I've always been a freelancer, so I've subbed/played in several orchestras. At the moment I don't play that much anymore due to other work, but there are two ensembles I'm still a member of. I play baroque and modern violin. As I understand Strauss originally composed the songs separately, and only after his death they were bundled and published together.

    Thanks, @Oscar! Wow, which orchestra do you play in? And what instrument? And YES, that horn solo is hauntingly beautiful! Ever since I heard Vier Letzte Lieder for the first time, I've had such a huge respect for them that I didn't dare to sing them, and the same goes for my friend Beatrice who is playing the piano here. Then one day we were like "Just do it". πŸ™‚ We cried the first time we went through the songs and through the tears laughed at Herr Strauss' capacity to really torment us with the painfully beautiful harmonies and dissonances. It feels like he makes me a better person with each bar...

    MikeClev asked about Bob Lazar and posted it a while back (I'm not sure of the date or format.): [MikeClev] I would like to ask next about the story of Bob Lazar. He claimed to have worked in the 1980s at a top secret facility he called S4, near Area 51 in the Nevada desert, his work allegedly involved studying one of nine ET craft and technology in a hangar dug into a mountainside. He claims to have seen documents explaining the origin of the craft. He describes an antigravity propulsion system in some detail. Which parts of his story are true, if any? [MEntity] The Scholar in question appears to have some validity to his story in terms of what he was informed about, but most was not experienced in-person. His tales are a mix of embellishment, misinformation, and some facts. The parts that appear to be true are a mix of some documentation regarding the crafts, speculation for how they work, and some details of location, but most of this was informed to him, and not directly experienced.

    After his dance of joy and freedom turns to a bloodbath by a mass shooter and then after his beating on the street that leaves his family fighting and forgetting him... comes the most painful part for me: the drowning out of our existence by the arguing and fighting among others over whether we have a right to exist at all. That punches me in the gut as I watch his face because that's exactly how you have to navigate it all. You just have to look straight ahead and stay strong. This isn't unique to the LGBTQIA+ community. So many from marginalized groups know this feeling.

    Yes! Can't wait to delve into this whole other dimension! I think this long wait between seasons will be worth it - Brit and her team seem to put so much thought behind every detail. It's so great trying to find the meaning behind all of it. Such a moving and thought-provoking show πŸ‘

    Sometimes I think people do stupid stuff like this just to create drama. You can't tell me the store didn't have salt and vinegar chips. Or even just plain ones! There's really no excuse today. A lot of junk food even has vegan labelling! If he really couldn't find anything else, he wasn't trying very hard.

    @AnnaElisa, I enjoy singing (I have learned a little bit of classical this lifetime, and @Martha and I were castrati in one lifetime and we knew of each other), and I enjoy hearing someone who knows how to sing, sing with truth and their own "throat/anatomy/phrasing". I love the individuality of the expression of singing, it is a combination of technical mastery of forming those sounds with strength, proficiency and expression that I listen for. It really connects me to my essence and I can tell that you get the same essence connection. I am learning baritone ukulele which I enjoy and I play in a band.

    I cried watching this. I'm definitely committed to veganism, more than ever. We'll get there. Like... literally everything we have assumed is all life can be (carnism, political factions, consumerism, capitalism, money, fossil fuels, dictatorship, organized religion, poverty, homelessness, selfishness, irresponsible escapism, uncontrollable technological progress, info glut, privatization, individualism, separation/loneliness, intentional violence, artificial scarcity, wastefulness, debt etc.) is coming to an end. This is exhausting yet also encouraging. I wonder how the 2020s and 30s will look/feel like given all of this change Thanks for posting..

    Has anyone had a chance to look at the Season 2 trailer of The OA? This one appears to explore a another parallel reality. I am excited and cannot wait to see it.

    I love anything that emits negative ions, and I was only in on the himalayan salt lamps because they are so gorgeous to look at, so this ticks all my boxes. Give me a storm and this lamp and I am happy.

    @Ladislaus (formerly Lad the Hun) , thanks for sharing! You made such a beautiful arrangement and you play so wonderfully!!

    It takes time to find vegan food in some places, but his response is "offended" and dramatic. If he really wants to hang out with you and your friends, he will begin to read the ingredients list better.... Life without drama is like winning the lottery unfortunately. Drama always seems to be a first resort also.

    Thanks, Troy!! You make me really happy! ❀️ πŸ™‚ And, curious and lurking as I am, I looked on Bobby's page and it turns out we have the same essence, casting, soul age, level, cadre, entity, centre/part and primary chief feature. πŸ˜„

    Wow this was... mesmerizing. It felt just like a profoundly whole body moving piece of music for me, but through dance. I remember all of the comments on the Try Guys Episodes involving Eugene said that he was just so hot (to both guys and girls). I can't help but agree. Beautiful inside and out. Ditto on what @Kasia said.

    Looks really good. Thanks, I will definitely watch it. The information these activists and doctors share helps keep shore up the knowledge. Important when discussing veganism with others.

    I just finished the show -- I thought it was incredibly deep and thought-provoking. What struck me the most was this current of intimacy that runs between the characters -- it felt so familiar, like the intimacy I have with some of my closest friends and those who were at the TLE gathering. I loved that the four boys and teacher were each a "type" that would've been shallow and stereotypical in other films and shows, but their stories and struggles were explored and they were these complex and real people that chose to be vulnerable with each other. I read some interviews with Brit Marling (I get the same sort of vulnerable, intimate thoughtfulness from her as from the show), and in one of them she explains why the story was set in a Mid-West suburb. I'm so impressed by her (and the show's) exploration of the spirit in the mundane and seeing beyond the obvious. This is a real Spiritualist film, and it taught me a lot about being comfortable with the unknown (which is difficult for someone with Stubbornness).
