Musical Stairs Fun Theory

Musical Stairs Fun Theory

Something to FEEL Good About Now!

Steve Jobs — “People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to … Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

Have you ever thought of creating something AMAZING but stopped short because you felt it was just too far out? Take a look at these Musical Stairs For Fun!

When I first saw this video it made me smile, then it prompted me to share it with friends and family members. The reason, musical stairs for fun demonstrates the reality that no idea, no matter how imaginative or unconventional is too outrageous. Especially if it makes people happy!

Imagine if visionaries such as the Wright brothers, Albert Einstein or Thomas Edison gave up on their dreams. Our world would be quite a different place.
What if Steve Jobs had all the ideas for Apple and said, “forget it those can’t be done, no one has ever done it that way… I’m not the one to create it!” Consider Virgin Airlines, Starbucks, and McDonalds, all mega brands that began with one person’s unique vision. Next time you grab a Coke remember that it was stirred into creation in a large kettle by a country doctor in his kitchen!

Each of these success stories began with the spark of imagination. None of them would have become real without the belief in that initial impulse and the drive and determination to follow it through to reality.

If you are like me you may have lots of imaginative ideas in your mind. I had to do a lot of work on myself to believe that each of them is valid. My biggest challenge has always been self-doubt. Today it’s which ideas I will focus on and which ones will I let fall by the way side. I am choosing to create OurBrightSpot, because it’s my dream and most of all because I trust it will make lots of people happy!

So what’s your most outlandish dream? Do you believe it’s possible? My theory is that only you can create it otherwise it wouldn’t be in your mind it would be in someone else’s. Next time you doubt yourself remember this post and this video. If you have the dream, you can make your vision a reality. Believe it and work to make it so. When and if you begin to doubt yourself, take another look at this video.

People love to have fun and feel happy, add music and even climbing a staircase becomes a joyful experience. Check out this amazing experiment. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have these everywhere…all around the globe!

A Little Peace & Quiet Meditation

A Little Peace & Quiet Meditation

Something to FEEL Good About Now!

Looking for A Little Peace & Quiet? Have you ever heard the sound generated by a Tibetan Singing Bowl? Maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about so let me introduce you to the world of magical musical treats you can explore. Calm your mind and relax your body through meditation by using a singing bowl to focus your thoughts and feelings into the present moment.

Whether you practice Yoga or meditation or nothing of the kind… There’s no doubt that most people respond positively when they hear the spiritual chime of the bowl. I begin my day, end my day and even several times during the day, bring myself back to center in the present moment, by ringing my only 3″ in diameter little bowl. For me it has become a tool that I use daily and incorporate into my life at home and at work. I want to share this with you because I am seeing more and more how mediation, and centering myself with this simple of act of ringing the Tibetan Bowl make a difference for me. It may do the same for each of you.

Here’s a little history. The Tibetan Singing Bowl dates back over 3000 years, originated in Asia and spread worldwide as a tool for meditation, relaxation, music and well-being. It’s actually a bell that creates a unique vibrational frequency that resonates within the body…. Physics continues to connect western and eastern medicine, ideas and practices to show that certain sounds activate and heal specific chakras, energy centers in the body. There are 7 chakras, each has it’s own specific resonating sound, just like notes on a musical instrument.

Singing bowls are used today to promote mediation, relaxation and personal well-being. They treat cancer patients, post traumatic stress disorder and most of all help to relieve stress.A wide a range of health professionals, musicians, school teachers and spiritual leaders use them especially to facilitate group activities, focus attention and as a signal to begin and end periods of silent mediation.

It’s common to take a yoga class and have it begin and end with the ringing of the bell. Each bowl produces a unique sound that can not only be heard it can also be felt in the body. Close our eyes, and ring the bowl… all I ask is that you put your feet on the ground and take a few deep breath. RELAX……….

Music Is The Universal Language

Music Is The Universal Language

Today’s BrightSpot!

“Music is the universal language of mankind.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Want to know a sure way to reduce stress, alter your mood, increase your well being and lift your spirits? Listen to some music! Your choices are limitless, just get out of your head and get into the beat, the melody, the lyrics and the rhythm. There’s no way you can feel bad when a great set of head phones is replacing those troubling thoughts with the magic of music!

The day we met, Mary Ann and I formed an instant connection through our mutual love of music. Our bond was forged when she took the time to lovingly create a few CD’s of her favorite songs to share with me. When she sent this video about cows, I have to admit I was baffled. But these cows prove what I believe to be true; all creatures respond to and connect to the vibrational sounds of music.

Music plays a major and crucial role in our everyday lives. We hear a specific song or instrumental and are instantly transported back in time and place. Aware of it or not, we are always listening; in our cars, during work hours, in elevators and even while waiting on the phone. We depend upon music to soothe us when we are upset, to relax us when we feel anxious and to lift our spirits when we feel down. There is no easier way to change your mood then to tune into a rhythm that makes you want to dance or a melody that moves you to sing.

Just like the cows in this video, we all feel a strong attraction and an instant unspoken level of trust with musicians. Cows can’t sing or dance but something inside them tells them that music is something powerful to be enjoyed. It is the universal language with healing power to bring us all together in a heartbeat.
