Increase Income – Reduce Stress- Multi Task


There are many benefits from enhanced multi tasking through frequency modulation and meditation.

In today’s era of accelerated change, we can multi task to create multiple streams of income.  When we learn to control, extend and guide the depth and length of our focus  we can dramatically increase productivity and reduce stress.

This photo from the El Cajon Ford blog shows the really WRONG way to benefit from multi tasking.

Most multitaskers make a really big mistake.  They multi task on the small stuff.  This creates a negative and often dangerous downward spiral.   The driver shown above may be trying to gain five minutes at the risk of life and limb… his and anyone else unfortunate enough to get in the way.

Merri and I used to be alert for weaving drunk drivers when on the road.   Now we are also always on the lookout for texting drivers.  Several times we have nearly been rear ended by multitaskers whose eyes were on their phone rather than the red light ahead.  This type of multitasker is getting it wrong.

Reserve multi tasking for the big stuff.  Multi tasking the big stuff can help you prosper during the social economic technological shifts we are encountering now.

Our business is one big multi task of focus… serving information on how to prosper during change through multi currency investing, international micro businesses ideas,  with self publishing and… earning from a seminar business… as well as how to have an internet business and how to live anywhere and earn everywhere. Whew!  One could get tired just thinking about all these different directions except… for the benefits.

We gain multiple streams of income by writing about and teaching at our seminars about the techniques we use in our lives, yet we remain relaxed.

One technique I use to improve multi tasking and remain in a state of relaxed concentration is listening to specific types of Baroque music as a form of meditation.

We teach how to use this technique in our Super Thinking + Spanish course.  Delegates learn how to communicate in Spanish in just three days… but learn much more.

For example initial results from a study at University of Washington of the effects of meditation confirm that this improves multitasking performance.

An excerpt from a study (1) at the University of Washington says: This paper reports initial results from a study exploring whether training in meditation or relaxation can improve office workers’ ability to multitask on a computer more effectively and or with less stress.  Human resource (HR) personnel were given 8 weeks of training in either mindfulness meditation or body relaxation techniques, and were given a stressful multitasking test both before and after training.  (A third group, a control group, received no intervention during the 8-week period but was tested both before and after this period.)  Results indicate that overall task time and errors did not differ significantly among the three groups.  However, the meditation group reported lower levels of stress and showed better memory for the tasks they had performed; they also switched tasks less often and remained focused on tasks longer.

Here is a new, better way to look at multi-tasking.   The downside to multi-tasking is that one act can detract from the other.  However there are ways to multi-task that actually make each process better.   There are numerous classical music techniques that enhance multi-tasking.

Numerous messages at this site have looked at how we can use baroque music to gain balance.    Another message on multi-tasking looks at how I use classical music when meditating and also when using a chainsaw to cut wood.   My Bose sound cancelling headphones help protect my hearing from the loud chainsaw, and the unique music I listen might actually help improve my hearing and help me stay focused on the chain saw.

There are numerous risks to our hearing, such as loud music or loud chainsaws.  Improperly used ear buds, iPods, MP3 players and mega speakers in automobiles for example increase the risks of hearing loss.

I multi-task with a form of sound therapy based on the work of ear specialist, Dr. Alfred Tomatis.

This therapy has helped some people correct hearing problems because there are numerous contributing causes to not hearing well.  Four main factors of loss are prolonged exposure to loud noise, lack of high frequency sound,  poor muscle tone in the middle ear, (from stress or poor diet) and poor central auditory processing.

Dr. Tomatis was a French inventor and MD trained at the Paris School of Medicine. He specialized in disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck.  He created an alternative approach to improving hearing and listening known as the Tomatis method.

The son of an opera singer, he gravitated to treating opera colleagues with vocal problems and found traditional treatments lacking.  He came up with the idea that vocal problems were often hearing problems.  “The voice does not produce what the ear does not hear” became central to his research and healing.

To help his patients hear better (so they could sing better) he developed an electronic device that exercises the ear with alternating high and low frequencies.  The exercise strengthens the muscles of the middle ear so they once again process missing frequencies.

The Tomatis therapy uses classical music filtered through a specialist device using specific algorithms and activation filters that stimulate the entire auditory system for natural hearing improvement.

In short, I attach a MP3 player to my Bose headphones and play a recording of classical music that has been manipulated to include frequencies that match a sound the human auditory curve.  The brain likes listening to classical music, so is open to the deficient frequencies which ride along with the music.  This enables the brain to  hear these frequencies as a normal ear would hear them.

This is a long term process, which when carried out consistently has helped retrain the brain to permanently hear the higher frequencies.

The Tomatis processed classical music presents fluctuating sounds, alternating through high and low channels so the ear constantly adjusts between high and low tones.  This gives ear muscles, cilia, auditory pathway and auditory cortex a complete work.  Such work-outs can help return muscles to their natural tone and provide physical improvement for better hearing.

Tomatis therapy (as are so many integrative health disciplines) is controversial.  My beliefs are based on my personal experience, and I have no scientific evidence to prove its validity.

My hearing  have been bad for decades, especially on my left side (as is my vision).  Years ago I purchased Tomatis Sound Therapy Tapes and began listening originally with a Sony Walkman.  Later I transferred the music to a Sansadisk MP3.   When I meditate and or cut wood or bush hog, weed eat, shoot or do anything that involves loud noise, on goes the headphones and the Tomatis music.

Unlike compensating with a hearing aid, Tomatis music aims to improve the ear’s natural functions by resolving root causes of hearing loss.  This can be useful for those with and without hearing aids.

I recently took a hearing test and though my left ear still has a high frequency deficit (due to causes beyond age), my right ear is very much in the normal range.

The downside of using Tomatis music is minimal.  After the basic cost (I believe I paid about $400 for the original tapes), all that’s required is to listen.  I listen when I write, when I meditate and when I am involved in loud noise.  I also listen when on flights.

This is not really a task.  I enjoy the music.  Plus there is plenty of scientific evidence that classical music does help balance the brain.  The listening helps me write better.  The listening keeps me alert and aware when working with fast moving, sharp, dangerous equipment. This is not a bad idea.

Certain types of classical music create a state of relaxed concentration, that lowers blood pressure and enhances the mind.

This is how to refine the art of multi tasking.

We are healthier and more productive in a state of relaxed concentration so let’s introduce a new word for the type of multi tasking where each task reinforces, rather than distracts, from the other.  We could call it BMT (Booster Multi Tasking).  Each task boosts the other.  The task of listening does not detract from the other tasks.  Instead it makes them better.  Listening to Tomatis music helps me write better.  Listening makes my meditation deeper.  Listening makes the chain saw, weed eater and bush hog safer.  Listening to this music protects my ears from loud noise and appears to even make my hearing better.

In most things there is an element of good and bad.  This is true in multi-tasking.  Do not text when you drive.  Do not put on sound cancelling headphones when you drive either.  But classical music, that does not interfere with your awareness, can help to be more comfortable and alert and help to drive better.  Using classical music in the correct circumstances is a benefit and better way to multi-task.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The Learn Spanish in three day course is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we are testing an online beta program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   This is a beta test and is available only this week, June 5 to 11, at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

The course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”
