Adamus conducted an interesting albeit non-scientific survey at the BON Adventure gathering in Hawaii in February. He began the first session of the morning with the Shaumbra 60-Second Workout – a great way to get the day started – and then launched into the survey.
The BON group consisted of 76 people from 18 different countries, about 80% women and 20% men, with ages ranging from the late 20’s to late 70’s. In other words, it was a pretty good representation of Shaumbra, but not necessarily of humans in general. He asked the group how much time they spent on various activities during the day. Linda raced around the room with the microphone getting audience input, while Rebecca Zuh (Australia) wrote the answers on the board. Feeling into the energy of the group, Adamus averaged the audience answers based on what he felt was really the amount of time spent on the activities.
Adamus’ question: How much time do you spend each day on…
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 4 hours per day to a high of 10 hours a day. Adamus said that the real average for Shaumbra is about 7.5 hours of sleep per day.
Adamus Comments – Shaumbra should have two sleep periods per day. The first would be about 4 hours in length, and the second “nap” would be about 60 – 90 minutes. “A lot of people sleep more than this because they don’t want to be awake… they don’t want the day to be so long.”
Writer’s Comment – So that’s why you wake me up nearly every night at 2 AM?
EATING? (including food preparation and consumption)
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 45 minutes a day to a high of 4 hours. Adamus said the actual average time Shaumbra spends preparing and eating food is about 3 hours per day.
Adamus Comments – “The human body only needs to eat once every two days. The required amount of energy your body needs can be fulfilled with one good meal every two days. Have a combination of protein, life-force foods such as fruits and vegetables, and then something you really like such as chocolate, cake, etc. Prepare the food in a leisurely way, and then eat it within a one-hour time span.”
Writer’s Note – A reminder that Adamus’ favorite and perhaps only food consisted of rolled oats, honey and nuts.
INTERNET? (for play, not work)
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 30 minutes a day to a high of 4 hours a day. Adamus said the actual average is about 2.25 hours per day including social media, social emails, etc.
Adamus Comments – “The Internet has become humanity’s socialization, communication and entertainment tool. Instead of getting together with family and friends, or doing something interesting like going to the marketplace, people spend their time on the Internet. How much time do you really need on the Internet? About 30 minutes a day.”
Writer’s Comment – Yah but, they didn’t have Internet in Adamus’ time. Most people didn’t know how to read or write, and letters were painstakingly written with pen and ink on scratchy paper.
VANITY? (including bathing, shaving, make-up, grooming, dressing, etc.)
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 10 minutes to a high of three hours. Adamus said the actual average is slightly over an hour a day.
Adamus Comments – “Take more time, especially doing things like getting a massage, getting your hair and nails done, and generally taking more time to pamper your physical body.”
Writer’s Comment – I probably spend more vanity time than Linda. It takes me longer because I’m taller.
Writer’s Comment – The audience came up with this category, not Adamus. It was an “interesting” audience.
Shaumbra: Time each day in the toilet ranged from a low of 20 minutes to a high of 70 minutes. The average is 45 minutes per day in the toilet.
Adamus Comments – “Are you people constipated or what? Remember, we don’t have restrooms at the Ascended Masters Club.”
ORGANIZATION & TASKS? (including laundry, shopping, cleaning, getting gas, paying bills, etc.)
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of one hour to a high of 4 hours daily. Adamus said the actual average is 3 hours a day.
Adamus Comments – “Humans spend a lot of time each day just keeping things organized. By the end of your life, you’ll have spent 3650 of your living days just doing mundane tasks such as cleaning. Robots can’t get here soon enough.”
Writer’s Comment – Bear in mind that Adamus had servants in his last lifetime.
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 0 to a high of 5 hours per day. Adamus said the actual average is 2.25 hours per day watching television.
Adamus Comments – “Really??”
Writer’s Comment – Adamus, if you didn’t wake us up in the middle of the night we wouldn’t be watching so much TV to try to get back to sleep.
CAREER & JOBS?
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 0 to a high of 10. Adamus said the actual average is about 5.5 hours per day because many Shaumbra don’t work anymore.
Adamus Comments – “Most adults work 8 – 10 hours a day. Shaumbra tend to work less because they have found other ways to realize abundance, or they retire early, or they simply don’t want to spend so much time working. They’d rather watch TV.”
Writer’s Comment – Is it work if you really enjoy what you’re doing? Or if your boss is an Ascended Master who always has a new project?
FRIENDS & FAMILY? (including personal, non-computer time being with friends and family)
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from 0 to 16 hours a day. (One person said they loved being with their partner 16 waking hours a day.) Adamus said the average time spent with family and friends is about one hour each day.
Adamus Comments – Shaumbra tend to spend less time with other people because they spend more time with themselves, or they find it increasingly difficult to be around people.
Writer’s Comment – Does this include time with friends who are Ascended Masters?
CRIMSON CIRCLE? (including talking with Adamus, listening to Shouds, talking with Shaumbra, etc.)
Shaumbra – Answers ranged from a low of 10 minutes a day to three hours a day. Adamus said the average time spent with Crimson Circle activities is about 45 minutes a day.
Adamus Comments – “You flatter me, to think that you spend 45 minutes a day with me.”
Writer’s Comment – You wake us up at 2 AM, which is why we’re with you 45 minutes each day.
WITH YOURSELF? (nothing else other than with yourself)
Shaumbra – Answers ranging from a low of 25 minutes to a high of four hours per day. Adamus said the average time for Shaumbra is actually about 45 minutes a day.
Adamus Comments – “Are you seeing something out of balance here?”
Writer’s Note – It sucks to be with me?
All of that adds up to 27.75 hours per day. Adamus says this overage is due to the fact that we multitask throughout the day, such as eating while we watch TV, or being on the Internet while on the toilet, or putting on our makeup while we’re still asleep. His point at the BON gathering was to look at our day, not necessarily from a time viewpoint but from the perspective of passion. How much routine is there in your day? How much of your day is rote and mindless? And, most importantly, how much passion is in your day? Passion is the very thing that ignites BON. It’s what illuminates the screen of creation and brings ordinary life to colorful, exciting life.
What’s a day in your life like? Is it spent sleeping and watching TV, or experiencing your last lifetime on Earth as an Embodied Master? Please share your thoughts and comments on any of the Crimson Circle Facebook pages. This could be an interesting study in Shaumbra sociology.
