We strive for many things in life. We strive for money, cars, houses, and other things of material value. We believe that these things, and others, will bring us happiness. We believe that these things will make us matter and be of worth and value in the world. As I progress in years I have come to the realization that while of some importance they are not what really matters. Being of service to others is the highest purpose we can have. For me, to be of services to others, to make a difference in the work is now what really matters. How I plan to make a difference for the world is through my music and my writings. It will be through my music and what I write that I will help transform the world.
The work of transformation is about learning to alter or change your way of thinking and of how you see yourself and the world. The work of transformation is about being gratiful for what you have. Many times people are not gratiful for what they have or have had. Yesterday I sold my home that I had lived in for seven years. On my way out of the house for the last time I turned and thanked the house for what it had done and been for me. I got at that moment that the house had come into my life and had been of assistance to me, greatly, at time in my life when I needed alot of assistance. The house gave me many things, safe haven being only one of them. Knowing that this would be the last time I would be in the house as its owner, I thanked the house for everything that it had done for me, for keeping me safe and letting be start to grow again. I am very gratiful for the house that I lived in and that I was now letting go of.
Modern technology now allows us to bring the power of therapeutic relaxation music to the world. The music that I create has one primary function, to relax a person and reduce the experience of stress. With the internet and the mp3 download program that we use, our therapeutic relaxation music can be transmitted to anyone who needs to experience a deep state of relaxation. In addition to the delivery of our therapeutic relaxation music through the internet, other professionals are starting to use our music to create their own audio health care products. The primary purpose of our musical creations is to help others to experience a deep state of relaxation. Once in this state the ability to transform their lives increases as the possibility of learning increases. We are more able to learn if we are relaxed and balanced as opposed to stressed out.
The Ocean is the other cd where nature and therapeutic relaxation music are combined to create a very relaxing and powerful experience. The Ocean has always been a very peaceful, relaxing and powerful experience for human beings. Listening to the sounds of the ocean will create the space for a person to experience a very deep state of relaxation. Track one of The Ocean is about listening to the sounds of the ocean and allowing your body and mind to relax and as a result experience inner peace. Track two is about the sounds of the ocean mixed with therapeutic relaxation music. The combination of the sounds of the ocean and the therapeutic relaxation music is extraordinary.
I am very excited to introduce two new cds. These cds combine nature sounds and music. The first is The Stream. The Stream is a very powerfully relaxing cd. The first track of this cd is the sounds of a stream. Water is something that is very powerful and healing for human beings. Listen to track one and the sounds of a stream will relax anyone. Trach two is about the sounds of a stream mixed with therapeutic relaxation music. The combination of the two, nature and music, will create a very relaxing state for anyone to step into. The Stream is a cd where both therapeutic relaxation music and nature sounds are brought together to create the experience of deep relaxation.
In the movie The Secret, Jack Canfield discusses a very important distinction that is important for us to get. The distinction is about what we want versus what we dont want. Most people live life from what they do not want, trying to avoid certain things in life rather than moving towards what they want. NLP refers to the same conversation as moving towards something as opposed to moving away from something. If we attempt to simply stay away from something or are constantly moving away from that something, it is no wonder that we will keep ths same in our life. Simply stated, what we think about and put conscious attention and intention to, physically manifests into our life. While something may not be that which we consciously tell ourselves that we do not want, we create it anyway. If what keeps showing up in our life is what we do not want then getting the importance of positive thoughts and thinking will allow you the opportunity to change your life. While this distinction may appear simple, there are some, if they were honest, would admit that they do not know what they want from and out of life.
As an addict’s thought process is that which is in need of change, the use of affirmations can assist in the recovery process. About two years ago I created a positive affirmation CD, “Enhancing My Self Esteem” from my studying of Louise Hay’s works. It got it that positive affirmation work and are even powerful for transforming our life. Given this new insight and knowledge I created the cd with fifty positive affirmations and began to use it in my work with addicts. The cd is about helping an addict change the negative self talk to one that is more positive in nature. If the addict listens to the cd consistently during his or her treatment and then after discharge for a period of time, he or she will begin to feel better about himself. The addict’s self esteem will begin to rise, and with it the motivation to do the recovery work. While it is not a substitute for the recovery readings, it is a tool that the addict can use to support his recovery.
