TUNER FOR YOUR LIFE!
Good day and I hope you are having a great day. My daughter is taking her first introductory lesson in guitar. My wife and I are not musical, so I am learning as she is. We had a guitar that I had bought many years ago and since this was her first attempt at music I thought before spending any money on a new guitar let’s see if she actually liked it. Having said that, since the guitar has been sitting in the garage for longer than my daughter has been alive, it desperately needed tuning. Being the practical father that I am, I asked my daughter to ask her teacher to tune it for her. To my surprise the teacher introduced us to an app that did that. I should have guessed right? In this age, there is an app for everything. Thank God for that because I could not tell a musical note from a howl of an owl to save my life. The app is called “Guitar Tuna” (pictured here), and you turn it on, put it close to the guitar and strum each string one by one. The measurement on the app will tell you if you need to tighten or loosen the strings by giving you a visual of how far off to the left or to the right of the cord you are. It was so easy and it worked every time.
We also need to tune our vibration, mind, and body from time to time, just like a musical instrument. Over time as you play an instrument it will get out of tune. Well as you go through your day to day life, being surrounded by all the negativity of mainstream media you need to tune yourself as well. That is where a set of affirmations, a little time to meditate, or situation reversers (pictures, music, notes that will remind you of good times) , will come handy.
For a quick tune up through, one of the easiest tools is a few well-chosen and well written affirmation statement that really resonates with you. You can choose to make up your own or use any saying that you like, and I will share with you two of my favorites. One is from the book The Master Key System which many think is the bases of the movie and the book The Secret. It goes this way “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy”. The other is one I came up with and it goes “I am healthy, wealthy, happy, and at peace”. Saying this over and over for about 5, 10, or 15 minutes will have the same effect as tuning a guitar. Try it when you are traveling in a car, or walking around. Say it out loud for the best effect. You have heard me say this over and over in this blog, there is a magic in saying an affirmation out loud. There is just something that triggers in your brain when you hear yourself speak. It is healing and it is powerful.
When you say the affirmation of your choosing, think of what you want to feel like. Maybe visualize a goal. Say it with conviction and with emphasis. What you don’t want this exercise to be like is just mumbling your affirmation over and over with no feeling. The Law of Attraction (LOA) works on your feeling and not the words. If you are saying you are wealthy but are feeling “oh man this is so bull $%#&^, this does not really work” then that is what you are attracting”. The words are a trigger, and the feeling you are feeling is the fuel for what you will manifest and how you will re-tune yourself. You can be feeling like you have a problem at work, and will start to visualize the end outcome you want. To have it perfectly resolved to your best interest at the perfect time, and then go about chanting your affirmation for 5 minutes. Get into it. Get louder if it will pump you up. Get calmer and rhythmic if you are pissed and need to calm down. Use the information I gave you in the past blog to adjust your volume to what you want to accomplish. Try this for a few weeks, and see how awesome you will feel. How refreshed you can become.
At least one day a week, I will go and chant for 1 hour with like-minded friends. I feel so energized and whole after such session. I hope this is helpful and as always please feel free to share it with anyone who can benefit from it. Leave me feedback on my Facebook page and / or tweet me on my twitter feed to let me know how this works. As always I hope this was helpful and I wish you success till next week.
