Happy April!

Lots to celebrate this month. April is guitar month (for all you music lovers), poetry month (for you wordsmiths) and humor month. I think many of us would agree that though times are challenging, if we can find a place in our lives for some laughter and humor, it makes our world a more pleasant place to be. Yes!!!

Sound has the ability to produce vibrant health and healing. In the Sound Signals To The Soul program, sound works to clear away unneeded blocks and replaces these areas with balanced energy. The healing and relaxation techniques can work on four levels (emotional, physical, mental and spiritual) and can lead to a light filled and healing experience. If you are interested in deep relaxation, reducing stress, options for pain relief and experiencing joy, this sound workshop is for you. I have completed professional training in sound healing, conducted by Tom Kenyon, under the auspices of Acoustic Brain Research

NIA is a dance and movement workout that integrates the body, mind and spirit. For more information on this exciting movement style visit Sound, Mind and Body 's website here

April 2009

Issue No. 5

This month we focus on the third of The 10 Be's of Positivity - Be Open-Minded.

Be Open-Minded
To be open-minded will bring such rewards.
Gifts will materialize; the world will be yours.
Joys not imagined will surely appear, if you're
open-minded, your path will be clear.

AN OPEN MIND

This month we focus on the third of The 10 Be's of Positivity, Be Open-Minded. I, for one, wish for an environment where the world was more so. You know, it's 2009 and people's attitudes should be in a place of acceptance and compassion and we only get there if we care to have an open mind.

I'm going to share a personal observation. My boyfriend looks like Merlin the wizard. You know - the fictional magician from the days of King Arthur. He's a freelance musician and though he doesn't have the beard he has long white hair half way down his back and piercing green emerald eyes. Little children and the elderly gravitate to him like a magnet. Many people in-between don't know what to think of him. But looks can be deceiving. You would not know to look at him that he left home at an early age and raised himself, along with helping other homeless kids. That he self-taught himself guitar, formed a band, made a lot of money, including enough to put himself through college and graduate valedictorian (impressive for someone who didn't graduate from high school, but passed his entry college exams anyway). Has his life been easy? Not really. Like most of us, he made some good decisions along the way and some not so perfect. But he's a good person with a heart of gold and it's not fair that some people judge him based on his appearance. When a policeman pulls him over, based solely on his looks, it can be frustrating. He has learned to tie his hair back and leave the leather jacket at home to decrease the possibility of harassment. Yes, looks can be deceiving. Many people don't expect a long hair wearing blue jeans and a leather jacket to have an IQ of 166, but I'm certainly glad I took the time for our initial conversation.

I do think being open-minded can take practice - just like strengthening a muscle, it gets stronger over time. I appreciate the opportunity to imagine myself in other people's shoes. What's going on in the mind of those with different political or religious views? What about the elderly? One day I will be a senior. What will that be like? When I was taking sound healing training with Tom Kenyan (a profoundly skilled teacher, scientist, psychotherapist and musician, among other things), he encouraged us to listen to all kinds of music, even music we usually steered away from. How does the music make you feel? What message do the lyrics deliver? I have found that by doing this exercise I am now appreciating music I just never let myself be exposed to before. As a result, I'm more receptive to a wide array of life experiences.

Let's practice open-mindedness as a collective community. Let's set examples for our kids and neighbors. Let's treat everyone like we ourselves would like to be treated. That's a world I would be thrilled and honored to live in.

In the Spirit of Positivity

*Make time for somebody else. You decide how.

*Hug yourself. You are deserving.

YOU are valued. Don't underestimate your importance.

The Power of Positivity is to Give Back

A few years ago, on a trip to Central Africa, I became acquainted with a hard-working organization called the Martin Luther King Jr. Foundation, located in Limbe, Cameroon. The Foundation works to promote peace, non-violence, social justice and sustainable development in Cameroon. To assist with their educational efforts, I started The Words Across The World Book Project. I collect books and send them to the Foundation, who makes the books available to all in the community, as well as students located at a University near the Foundation's office. To learn more about this organization, visit www.lukmefcameroon.org. I sit on the International Board of Directors for this organization and a portion of book sales goes to support this worthy cause.

YOU
are capable of experiencing a universe of vast opportunity. With an open mind and an open heart anything is possible.


Being Open-Minded
=
an increased ability of understanding
