Success - Overcoming Bodily Conditions Which Seem Impossible of ChangeWritten by Jason Katzenback
Conditions differ from circumstances. Circumstances are changeable conditions which merely "stand around about you," and, of them, have no stability. They are created by man, and can be overcome by man.
But, differing from circumstances, there are certain conditions which seem to be so "fixed" that they obstruct your progress toward success. They are of two kinds: undesirable facial features, and malformations of body. They are often so fixed that it seems impossible to change them.
Yet, limitations of all such conditions can be overcome! It has been done hundreds of times, and that which has been done, can be done!
Of course, you cannot change your height from four feet eight inches to six feet two inches, but in all dealings with others, you can overcome limitations which you think are due to a stature of four feet eight inches! You can carry yourself in such a way that others will think of you as a king. Napoleon, though short of stature, made himself commanding figure among all classes and manner of men, merely by way he carried himself. He did not increase his stature, but he overcame its limitations.
Whether or not you succeed in overcoming conditions, which it seems impossible for you to change, depends on your vision of powers of your soul, on your faith in its possibilities, and on your use of expression as means of overcoming limitations. If your ideal of possibilities and powers of your real self is limited, then you hinder yourself in climbing out from under conditions. But, if you realize that your soul is infinite, and that its possibilities of expression are limitless; then, no matter what partial manifestation, no matter what restricting condition, no matter what limitation-you can climb out from under it, by changing your expression!
In essence, your soul is perfect-embracing all possibilities and all powers.
In manifestation, you limit yourself by limiting your expression.
Classical Music TherapyWritten by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot
Music, more than entertainment, has played an instrumental role in healing and harmonizing mind, body and spirit. For thousands of years, Vedic culture has used sound and music for body and mind balancing, health enhancement, healing promotion and encouragement of heightened awareness. The Greek mathematician, Pythagoras theorized that music diminished and even eradicated negative energy and emotions. Modern studies explicitly show that specific sounds and music do in fact, have documented, measurable and multiple healing benefits. Today's medicine understands that all bodily functions, like breathing and pulse, work cyclically and rhythmically. It is these rhythms that are influenced and synchronized with certain music and sound patterns.
Music therapy, my favorite being classical, has become widly recognized since early 1950s. Used for pain, migraines, cancer, stress, upset stomach, fatigue, depression and other, multiple disorders; music therapy can reduce heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, stress and anxiety. Most recently, music has been found to bolster immune system and assists in harmonizing symmetries in right and left frontal lobes of brain, (in case of mental disorders).
The most interesting of studies in music therapy is that of an experiment conducted years ago. The music experiment compared effects of classical music to rock and roll music on plant growth. Intriguingly, classical music helped plants to grow faster; whereas rock music actually deteriorated plant's growth. Similarly, classical music has same effect on humans as it does on plants. Amazingly, patients who listened to Mozart had a whopping 10-15 point increase in IQ. Given this information, it might encourage one to go out and buy latest Beethoven on compact disc. Today, one doesn't have to attend an orchestrated concert to hear it. Most outlet stores, even Internet stores sell classical music to general public.
