Be Calm in the Turmoil


Sound can bring peace in these tulmutuous times.

What causes your stress?  Volatile stock market? Economic recession?  Low interest rates? Hurricanes?  Forest fires? War with China? A pandemic?

I could go on.  We are not lacking for reasons to freak out.

Just Google the word “stress”  and look at the news.

In the last hour… these headlines appeared:

“The pandemic is not only a health crisis, it is causing Canadians financial stress as well”

“Marriage and Relationship Advice for Coping With the Stress of Pandemic Lockdowns” But more than just too much time together, the pandemic has magnified the different ways in which men and women deal with stressful situations.

“How To Reduce Stock Market Driven Stress And Anxiety About Your Money as 2020 is certainly going to go down in history as one of the wildest”

Lili Reinhart Details Anxiety Battle Amid COVID-19 Pandemic: ‘I Stress Myself Out All The Time”

Here’s are ways to reduce stress.

Budapest Baroque Music Festival

Baroque music is a powerful medicine for stress.

The article “Mozart as Medicine” (1) compared the calming effects of music versus a Valium-type drug midazolam (sold as Versed) and said: A study from Sweden sought to determine if relaxing music has a greater anxiety-reducing effect than a standard dose of midazolam.  Researchers whipped out some Kenny G, and the music worked significantly better than the drug.  Those listening to Mr. G had lower anxiety scores, heart rates, and blood pressures.  This is perhaps the first report of any anti-anxiety therapy working not only as well as, but even better than, benzodiazepine drugs.

These facts come from NUTRITIONFACTS.ORG, (1) a strictly non-commercial, science-based public service provided by Dr. Michael Greger, providing free updates on the latest in nutrition research via bite-sized videos.

That post goes on to show the subconscious power of music.

The article says: Well, if you take someone with a latex allergy and inject their skin with latex, they get a big, red, angry bump. But if you repeat the test after they’ve been listening to Mozart for 30 minutes, they develop a much smaller bump (as you can see in my video, Music as Medicine).  That is, they have less of an allergic reaction.

Banned from Marathons.  Scientific research has shown music has such influence on competitive performances that at times there has been a USA Track & Field ban on music during competition.

Music can even help us lose fat!

Music even super charges our metabolism. The research on music found that listening to music increases our metabolic rate so we burn an average of 27.6 more calories a day just lying in bed.

It is estimated that 3,436 to 3,752 calories creates a pound of fat. This means that if you do nothing but eat and exercise as you have been but listen to music, you’ll lose a pound every 4 and a half months or so.

Wait a minute… tht’s a good idea.

Dance a little… even by yourself.  This is a good idea in troubled times… dance every day.  Do it!

Throw in this exercise with good music, and the weight loss may be more.  Plus listening to music can help you feel good so maybe, just maybe the right tune can help you avoid comfort food as well.

Cleanse the Brain with Sound

A recent article at John Douillard’s Lifespa.com (2) helps us understand the calming healing and restorative power of sound.

Here are excerpts from John’s article: Have you or someone you know ever struggled with depression?

According to the World Health Organization, in 2017, more than 322 million people worldwide were clinically depressed, making depression one of the most common chronic health conditions.
How does Ayurveda address help boost mood and nervous system regulation? Both music therapy and chanting have been well studied to help in this area. Both employ “vibrational changes” in the central nervous system, which may play a role in their time-tested and science-backed brain, cognitive, and mood benefits.

Protective myelin sheaths wry neurons in the white matter of the rain. They are soft fatty and impressionable which is why they can record heartfelt traumas and impressions carried in impulses to the brain.

Memories are written onto these fatty myelin sheaths.

One study suggests up to 95% of the things we think, say, and do as adults come from impressions in the first six years of life. We call these unconscious behaviors because they are drawn from unconscious old traumas.

One cure is erasing and cleansing this unproductive memories from the myelin sheath with vibration.

Music Therapy

In a review of 26 studies, a statistical significant reduction in depression was found over time in groups using music interventions compared to control groups. Music-intervention groups also saw significant improvements in confidence, self esteem and motivation.

The answer is… “Listen every day to calming healing music”. 

One type of this music is 60 beats a minutes music.

Research at a University of North Carolina website entitled “Music Can Help You Study” (3) says: Did you know music can help you study?  Studies have shown that the right kind of music can help you relax your mind which enables you to concentrate better.  Perfect to studying, doing homework or studying for a test or exam.  It cuts down on distractions and helps you focus on your work.

The most cited study is the “Mozart Effect” a set of research results that indicate that listening to Mozart’s music may induce a short-term improvement on the performance of certain kinds of mental tasks known as “spatial-temporal reasoning” which is the ability to think out long-term, more abstract solutions to logical problems that arise.

What Kind of Music Helps You Study?

There are many types of music that have been shown to put your mind in study mode. Here are a few of the most mentioned:  Baroque classical music is said to have mind-boosting effects. Productivity writer, David Allen, of  “Getting Things Done”  fame has said he prefers music like Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons,” “Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3”, and other Baroque tunes. Others say that music at 60 beats-per-minute is required to put the brain in a “bright and breezy” frame of mind. In this state your thinking and creativity are said to be easier. Concertos for Recorder – Telemann & Vivaldi is recommended.

Here are some of the Baroque composers who composed this type of music;  Bach, Chopin, Corelli, Haydn,  Mozart, Telemann, Vivaldi

Baroque music, however, creates “Relaxed Concentration” the state one wants to attain during study and action.

The world has become complicated so take an easy, simply path.  Listen every day to 60 beats a minutes Baroque music.

One study found that when subjects listened to Mozart’s “Sonata for Two Pianos K.448” (4) for ten minutes, for 10-15 minutes after, they showed significantly increased spatial reasoning skills compared to periods of listening to silence or relaxation instructions designed to lower blood pressure. On average, IQ scores were shown to be 8 and 9 points higher after listening to Mozart compared to silence or the relaxing instructions.

I also like to listen to calming Vedic chants.

One Vedic chant I find calming is called the Gayatri yagya.  I often listen to a rendition of this chant put to music by Deva Premal.  Listen at the link below (4).

deva premal

The words in this chant translated into English are:

You who are the source of all power,
Whose rays illuminate the world,
Illuminate also my heart and my mind
So that they too can do your work.

In this time of stress those words form a pretty good aspiration for us to have.

Be Smarter With Less Stress

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.

Liars?

They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Reduce stress.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!

Proof?

At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.
