It's Time To Face The Music
the healing and motivational qualities of music

I have traveled abroad quite a bit and what I found is the common thread between all persons on this earth is music. Sheet music is the same here as it is in China, Russia Africa everywhere. Music is our common language. Music moves our souls. It can inspire, motivate and even relax us. Most of us are moved by its power to portray love, angst, sorrow and rage. It reflects a whole range of emotions we have all felt at some point in our lives. It is a reflection of us and the times.

There are neuroscientists who are working to discover exactly why music has healing powers. The Max Planck Institute for Brain Sciences in Leipzig and Sussex, England has uncovered a connection between listening to cheerful music and the suppression of cortisol a damaging stress hormone and increased production of immunoglobulin A, an antibody in the immune system.

At the University of Hawaii, eye surgery patients responded with improved vital signs to live classical music in the operating room. After all, it's pretty amazing that it can stimulate certain areas of the brain, speed healing, and decrease anxiety and increase optimism.

There are different components to music that can have an effect. Pitch, harmony, frequency, melody, and rhythm all affect the brain in different ways. We know that some of the brain locations are involved in helping to heal and soothe the body as well.

The brain can be taught and stimulated to perform better -- and it seems that music is the perfect vehicle to do that. So if you find your soul is thirsty for some good music make a playlist, turn up the speakers and let the healing begin.

Thank you for your patronage.

Have an excellent Day!

Freedom Requires Responsibility
Max Steingart

Freedom is the right to live as you wish.

If you wish to free yourself from enslavement, you must chose freedom and the responsibility it entails.

There is a price for every freedom, something to be given up for every liberty.
Its up to you to weigh the price you must pay for each of your freedoms. And everything you want has a price.

Freedom is the opportunity to make decisions. Its the capacity to take a hand in your own development.

Freedom is the right to choose. Its the right to create for yourself the alternatives of choice.

No one is free who is not master of himself.

You are free to do whatever you would like. You need only face the consequences of your actions.

Keeping a Health Heart
four habits to keep it pumping

It's almost Valentines Day, and hopefully you are feeling loved! The heart in the human body functionally serves as a circulation pump with an electrical impulses, using sodium, potassium, and calcium contracting the muscle and sending blood, oxygen and vital nutrients all through out the body. Heart disease is a huge problem in America, being the number one killer, with an approaching 600,000 people dying each year. [1]  Heart disease encompasses multiple afflictions and diagnoses, such as congestive heart failure, congenital heart disease, heart attack, stroke, and coronary heart disease. [2]  Many health problems, like heart disease, can be avoided with diet and lifestyle. However, there is another component to good health, beyond the well known basics. Imagine a triangle, and in one form of medicine, Applied Kinesiology [3] , there is what is referred to as the “Triad of Health”. The foundation of this triangle is on the “structure” of the body, with the sides comprised of “chemical and mental”. It is is the realm of the “mental or emotional” category that can be a largely overlooked component of heart disease. Cardiologist Dr. Mimi Guarneri highlights all the hearts different aspects in her book The Heart Speaks. [4]  Do these 4 things regularly for a healthier and happier heart and life.

1. Let Go! Emotions can be overwhelming, and may get bottled up. What happens when pressure adds? You will get an EXPLOSION if you don't express your feelings! Don't go there, by daily trying to release the hardships you endured. Talking or journaling can be an outlet, or exercise. Find something that works for you. Consider Emotional Freedom Technique, or otherwise known as tapping, which is a quick and easy tool that has profound effects. [5]

2. Follow your passion! Do you feel a sense of fulfillment in your life? What gets you “lit up”? Doing what you love is like spiritual food for your heart. Either in your work life or outside of that, connect with an activity that you enjoy regularly. If you love to dance, and its been a while, turn up the music at home on an evening after work. Don't put off the simple pleasures that put a simile on your face.

3. Forgive and stop worrying! We all experience feelings of resentment at one point or another, to others or even ourselves. Holding on to this is toxic. We just have this moment to live, and often we are either in past or future. Realize that each person in any given moment is doing the best they can, and if you've been hurt, don't keep on hurting yourself with reliving that situation for the past. Talk with a professional or trusted friend to help you through life's challenges.

4. Do the basics! It is the basic lifestyle habits that create a compound effect that will lead you to health or away from it. Don't use tobacco, eat plenty of vegetables, eat fruit for dessert, and exercise.

Present in the Progression
Letting Life Unfold

Our lives are guided by natural rhythms that are particular to each of us and cannot be altered by force of will alone. Life itself is a journey made up of processes and events that manifest before us only to be swept away when time marches on. Whether we envision ourselves creating a career, building a family, or developing the self, we instinctively know when the time has come for us to realize our dreams because all that is involved comes together harmoniously. When the time is right, the passage of destiny cannot be blocked. Yet as desperate as we are to touch these beautiful futures we have imagined, we cannot grow if we are not fully present in the evolutionary experience. The present can be challenging, uncomfortable, and tedious, but life unfolds as it will, and the universe will wait patiently as we make our way into the unknown.

The fate that awaits us is not dependent on our pace, which was preordained before we ever appeared in human guise. Therefore there is no reason to rush through life to reach those pinnacles of development associated with the paths we have chosen. Enjoying and fully experiencing the journey of life is as important as achieving goals and reaching milestones. There are lessons we can learn during those moments that seem immaterial or insignificant that we cannot learn at any other time. Appreciating these takes patience, however, because human beings tend to focus on the fulfillment of expectations rather than the simple joys of being.

Like many people, you have no doubt longed for a device that would give you the power to fast forward through certain periods of your existence. Yet haste is by its very nature vastly more stressful than serene fortitude. When you feel yourself growing impatient because the pace of your development is deceptively slow, remember that everything that will occur in your life will occur in its own time. Quelling your urge to rush will enable you to witness yourself learning, changing, and becoming stronger. There is so much to see and do in between the events and processes that we deem definitive. If you are patient enough to take pleasure in your existence's unfolding, the journey from one pinnacle to the next will seem to take no time at all.
