The ASMR Daily 151
Who Are The Aboriginal Australians?
There is not only a lot to say only about today’s Video Of The Day, but also the creator behind it. Nefertiti ASMR has been creating videos for eleven months and one week. That’s like…no time at all haha. Yesterday I featured AsMR. Dripp, and he only has like 750 subs but he has been making ASMR video since 2018. Granted, he hasn’t made nearly as many videos as Nefertiti.
I’m genuinely interested to know…do you about Nefertiti? I honestly don’t know much about the Nefertiti, except that she was a Pharaoh of Egypt. Now I am going to look at Google to find out if I’m right about that lol.
Okay! So Nefertiti was definitely a Queen, being that she was the wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV, but whether or not she was actually a Pharaoh is contested. It is likely that she did become Pharaoh after her husbands death, but apparently scientists can not identify is Pharaoh Neferneferuaten is Nefertiti or not. Man! History ain’t confusing, but given that I am so accustomed to being able to have information at the tips of my fingers all day, I’ve become jaded in regards to the mystery of history. The memories of humanity have, in some cases, been so well preserved that I can feel them as my own. However the further back we go, the less we know. Outside of that linear flow of historic information, there are also leaders who purge their land’s history. For instance – Pharaoh Amenhotep decided to change the principle religion of Egypt [I guess the king decides who god really is]. You probably learned in school that the Egyptians worshiped many different god’s. Many of them you will know, such as Ra, Osiris, and Horus.
Amenhotep the fourth decided to change all of that, and basically overnight, Egypt became a land – and a people – that believed in only one god! It didn’t take. After his death, the Egyptians and future rulers of Egypt undid most of what Amenhotep [and his wife Nefertiti] had built. “After his death, Akhenaten’s monuments were dismantled and hidden, his statues were destroyed, and his name excluded from lists of rules complied by later pharaohs.” – Wikipedia
It is probably worth noting that Amenhotep and Nefertiti had six known daughters, but Amenhotep had more kids than six, because he is also the father of…ready? King Tut. King Tut got famous the long way haha; we won’t even get into that. But! What’s important is that King Tut married his half-sister, who was the daughter of Nefertiti and Amenhotep the fourth [equally known as Akhenaten].
I…am rambling, and you know I really haven’t even touched on the subject of today’s video. Let’s check out that video by Nefertiti ASMR before we go any further.
For this part of today’s article, I was going to talk about the two mass extinctions homo-sapiens created for local animal populations when they migrated out of Africa, moving into Australia and North America, respectively. Alas! I do not want to ramble! Short, sweet, and to the point; that’s what I would like to keep these daily articles. SO! I will spare you the details of me summarizing information that can be easily obtained by reading the book Sapiens. Instead, I will just wrap things up!
Nefertiti is clearly an amazing asmrtist. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve featured her on the blog! I will definitely be paying more attention to the content she produces. One of the benefits of her channel, for me, is that she speaks French. Sometimes I want to listen to ASMR, and I even want to listen to the sounds of another human talking, but perhaps I am writing and can’t listen to both the voice in my own head, and the voice coming through my headphones. Listening to ASMR in languages we can’t understand is something viciously unique to the modern day, and it also serves as a powerful tool for concentration.
In the future, it is very possible I will feature this same video and do a much more extensive article about Aboriginal Australians. Perhaps I will go to Australia and visit some museums, that way I am more well equipped to tell the story of Australia. However, for individuals that are interested in how humanity arrived to Australia [and everywhere else], I cannot recommend the book Sapiens enough. It’s a life changing book, and actually, I believe strongly that Sapiens will be taught in schools across the globe very soon. It’s that good.

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.
