“Skyscraper” live @ Freddy’s – Nov. 21, 2017

[Video] Stand & Deliver live in Detroit

Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve got so much to be thankful for this year. Not least being able to rock out on stage with Lupo (guitar) and Frank (bass) for the first time since 2003. We’ve played a lot, written a lot of new songs, and rehearsed in the meantime. But with kids, work, and life….plus trying to find a drummer who won’t spontaneously combust*…it’s been a much longer journey than expected.

*(We had to get two – the brothers Farkas – just in case.)

Under the Pressure You Learn to Have a Life

Aries Full Moon Playlist

See my post on the Aries Full Moon and what’s going down in the world.

Heading for the Top Now (Mashup)

We should be heading for the top now
We’ve had a hundred thousand years
Under the pressure is where we are
Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
I hope you get everything you need
Working for the clampdown
In the land of the brave and the home of the free
Working for the clampdown  Continue reading

Energize Your Intentions With These Brainwave & Hypnosis MP3s

New Moon, New Energy

You’ve probably read a million astrology forecasts stating that “the New Moon is the perfect time to set your intentions for what you want to attract into your life.” I used to believe that, too. But as I’ve become more tuned in to the rhythms of the lunar cycle, I’ve found it’s not usually true for me.

Now I try to use the low energy days leading up to the exact moment of the New Moon to go within and discover which patterns or people or activities have run their course: What do I want or need to let go from my life?

I’ve found that the week directly after the New Moon is actually more propitious for intention-setting and visualization of what I want to create or attract into my life.

I spent so many years with headphones on, either listening to or creating hypnosis and brainwave entrainment MP3s, I think I needed to take a break! But people have been asking me to make these available again. So I’ve added two more brainwave entrainment MP3s and a dual-hypnosis MP3 to my audio meditation store page.

Manifesting & Intention-Setting Audio Downloads

I’ve continued to listen to Dolphins of Sirius B down through the years. The music and sounds for this track were given to me by my Star Tribe; I can still remember the feeling of sitting in front of the keyboard and trying to recreate the sounds I was hearing. And it seems especially appropriate to re-release now, in light of my recent Venus experience.

But I hadn’t listened to Theta Fishing Trip. I kept thinking I should do, because so many people told me it was their favorite track out of all the brainwave entrainment audios I created. But you know how it is listening to your own voice.

Well, last week I  went back and listened to it. And it kind of blew me away. I forgot that I had learned how to hypnotize people into feeling that relaxed.

If you don’t already own these and you’re ready to feel amazingly relaxed while programming your subconscious to bring you more of the life you want, check ’em out.

 

Message from the Muse

What I Did On My Total Solar Eclipse

‘Don’t ask yourself what the world needs;
ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that. Because what the
world needs is people who have come alive.’ 
—Harold Whitman

Wake-Up Call from Venus

Thursday morning, 9/13

Mandala, from a magnolia leaf I found on the lawn.

I woke up uncommonly early last Thursday. With the happy thought in my mind: “I’m rich!”

Just to be clear: This has not been my usual first thought upon waking. And, the thought came with a bonus mantra:

I’m rich!
I’m rich!
I just came into a large sum of money

I’m rich!
I’m rich!
I just came into a large sum of money

I had been reading in The Oracle Report and elsewhere that we should be receiving messages on Tuesday or Wednesday that would bring clarity to what we’d been experiencing in the aftermath of the August 21 total solar eclipse.

I was eager to get this message. Because for all of the promise of the Leo eclipse, the next three weeks felt more like a protracted ending than a new beginning. Continue reading

Soul Mantra

Positive Reinforcement

In times like these, I need frequent reminding that Life will take care of me if I listen to my soul and not to the voices of fear. This soul mantra is fun, upbeat and designed to hypnotize you into remembering that you are the center. May it lift your spirits and bring you back to what’s real.

Everything Is Perfectly Fine In This Moment

This meditative piece that turns into a happy little song in the last minute came out of a dark moment. One of those days when I felt paralyzed, stuck in the mud of unhappy thoughts. The Mind Parasites had brought their A game and me…? I felt like a total loser.

One of those days where you tell yourself, “Just play up your damn guitar – five minutes – and you’ll feel better.” But you just stare at it, across the room, knowing you’re too much of a chump to walk over and even pick it up.

And then this thunderstorm rolled in. It was a clear summer day and suddenly the sky turned dark, the lightning crashed, the heavens opened up and the rain came down. And I got excited about trying to record the thunder and the rain on my iPhone. I ran outside under the front awning. I ran upstairs to the little back balcony. I trotted down the hall to my studio.

And I spent the next few hours in creative nirvana….

Songs I Made in 2016

Right as Mercury was about to station retrograde in December I promised my supporters on Patreon I would put together a playlist of the songs I had completed in 2016. This week I finally got to the project, and I have to tell you – I’m really proud of myself. I still like the songs – which is always cool – but I think I’m proudest of the fact I kept doing the work. During a year when it would have been easy to kick my inner artist out of the studio and tell him to come back later when circumstances weren’t so challenging, I didn’t do that. I honored the Muse with my perseverance and attention. And she gave gave me these lovely melodies (and a few words) to share with you.

On the Moon

On the Moon

Without Contraries is no progression. – William Blake

We’ve been feeling – a lot – this autumn. We can feel the world changing and it can feel by turns exhilarating, terrifying, exhausting and confusing.

Today’s Gemini Full Moon empowers us to think rationally about everything we’ve felt over the last two or three lunar cycles – and, indeed, the last year. This is a valuable gift, Continue reading
