The ASMR Daily 147
Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter. If you are reading this blog, you must know, right? I would like to believe that most individuals interested in the ASMR Community, and in-turn individuals interested in my website, are on the side of the BLM movement. The internet is changing the world, and it’s definitely changing the way we interact with each other, and interact with our governments.
Protests have been erupting worldwide!..do you feel like a lot of changes are happening? Governments are not designed to deal with the rapid changes and shifts in mood that the internet encourages us to have on a daily basis!
Recently, most citizens on the globe became required to sit at home, and as a side-effect spent more time examining and thinking about their governments [almost all of which are run in a similar fashion]. Citizens from 47 countries [so far] all decided, all at once, in multiple places and for multiple reasons, that they require a change in government to continue living happily. I’d like to believe that in all 47 cases, citizens have a logical and organized list of demands.
In response to the unrest, governments of the world have been slow to proceed; irrationally slow. Most of the governments on earth only have one thing in common: they are about to change. This is due to the internet, and movements like Black Lives Matter.
Would I feel as strongly about the BLM movement if it was not an American movement? That answer is null and void. I have been seeing videos on the news and on the internet of police shooting black individuals, routinely and consistently for well over 10 years now, which leads me to understand that this problem did not start at the time the videos started appearing. Beyond that, I also hear, believe, and trust my fellow American when they say they are struggling.
I would definitely conclude upon the side of BLM, no matter what country it had sprouted from. Racism is a global plague, and so I fight it where I am, because it is there too. Racism is on the internet, so I combat it here too. Racism is in America, and I am conscious of it everyday.
Personally I am confident speaking about, and in favor of the BLM movement because I have confidence in my education on the subject of Black America. Individuals that have not concluded upon siding with BLM, well, I am to conclude they are either not listening, or not understanding.
I’ve been listening for years.
If you have been living in America for the last 20 years and do not currently believe that racism is a deep rooted and significant danger to the public health and safety all American’s…I must ask how you conclude upon that? The study of racism is scientific, not philosophical. You do not need to “read between the lines” to understand the problem.
If there’s one thing I know forsure, it’s that racism is nothing like riding a bike, because everybody can understand racism.
Black Creators Matter
Today, and for the next 14 days, I will be featuring black asmr creators for our Video Of The Day series, because change does not start at the top, it starts at the bottom. I want to do my part to help build the pillars of success.
I’m not sure how to fix all the problems involving our American government and our systemic racism problem. What I hope to do over the next 14 days is promote open conversations about racism in America, and promote conversations about the changes that are very obviously happening all around us.
Will these conversations happen on this blog? Well, I don’t have a comments section haha. BUT! You could comment on Bree’s ASMR video. In fact, it’s about time we watch the video, let Bree relax us, and butalso get in the mood for a revolution!
Calming and confident. Now that’s my kind of ASMR!
Well, that concludes today’s article.
If you are suffering from addiction, I encourage you to get involved in the BLM movement! It is true, also, that I say individuals who are suffering from addiction are not in the position to help anybody but themselves, however if you are reading this blog post, you are doing something to combat your addiction, and so it is possible that you are ready to start helping others as well.

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

He does a livestream every night at 21:00 Eastern Standard Time, and his live streams are a great place to receive support, gain motivation, and listen to encouragement in regard to addiction recovery. His program is based on the Twelve Steps.
SMART Recovery is another great program for individuals who are ready to tackle their addictions.
If you are seeking spiritual guidance, I highly encourage you to check out Tarot Reader ASMR. Her name is Amalia, and she is a kind-hearted individual with a skill for bringing us closer to ourselves.
Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
