Peace Through Music blessings from the Soundings of the Planet team
(l to r Brett Steelhammer, Dean Evenson, Dudley Evenson, Alycia Willson, Phil Heaven)

We at Soundings of the Planet send you the blessings of Peace Through Music this season and every day. We firmly believe peace is possible in our daily lives in spite of what mainstream news wants us to believe. We live by the principle – ‘What you focus on expands’ – and we choose to focus on the goodness inherent in every person, the bounty and abundance of the Earth, and the knowledge that peace is a goal worth striving for.

We realize it’s been quite a year and we aren’t living in a cave without awareness of the tragedies that exist in our world. We do know that each one of us has the opportunity to make a positive difference in our family, our community and our world and so we move forward with hope and gratitude for the gifts we do have. We all have our ups and downs but we deal with what comes, keeping a positive attitude and doing what needs to be done.  Peace Through Music has been our mission since we founded Soundings of the Planet over 35 years ago and it continues to this day. We hope that our offerings are a benefit to you and your family or if you are a massage therapist or healing arts professional – to you and your clients. Or if you are a teacher – to you and your students. Or if you are a parent – to you and your kids. You get the gist! Continue reading Peace On Earth. Peace Through Music!

12 Steps Living Your Dreams

TWELVE STEPS TO LIVING YOUR DREAMS

Here are some simple ideas to help you live your dreams.

One – Identify your purpose and mission in life.
Why were you born?  What are your special gifts, passions and skills?  Meditate on it. Clear your mind and environment of clutter. Create clarity in your life and be open to understanding what you want to be and do in this life.

Two –  Only you can create your own reality.
Do your ‘own’ thing, not your parent’s idea of what that might be. Vision it, sing it, say it. Create an affirmation vision mantra.  Spend time in nature learning from natural systems.  Refresh yourself constantly.  Know what you want and go for your goals.

Three – Go with the Flow.  Don’t resist it.
Resist Not Evil. Tai Chi it. “The Great Way (The Tao) is not difficult for those who have no preferences…  If you wish to see the truth, then hold no opinions for or against anything.”

Four – Be open and accept all as support.
Discern but don’t judge.  The Universe is a sea of infinite possibilities. Accept guidance from the Universe.   You never know where help will come from.

Five – Do what you love to do.
Enjoy your life.  What makes you happy and feel good?  Take time to cultivate your daily life so it includes doing what harmonizes with your spirit.  Design your life so it works for you.

Six – What you focus on expands.
Focus on the positive, not the negative.  What you have, not what you lack.  What you desire, not your problems.  The Law of Attraction.  Power of Intention.  Turn off your television and pray!

Seven – Find a Partner or Partners.  Dream together.
Get support.  Find people who share your values, ideals, visions and dreams.  “Where two or more are gathered, there also shall I be.” (Jesus) Group action.  Hire a helper or helpers.

Eight – Map it.  Design it.  Plan it.
Draw it, sketch it, write about it, model it.  Research.  Who is out there doing something similar?  Make lists.  Write a business plan. Be always alert for new ideas and ways of manifesting.

Nine – Take action.  Do it!
Pick up the phone, write a letter.  Volunteer your services.  Teach or take a workshop.  Set up a business.  Let people know about your dream, vision or project.

Ten – Constantly re-evaluate and modify your dream.
Update, upgrade.  No dream ever stays the same.  OK to change, improve and rework it.  Learn from your mistakes. Your original dream may have been incomplete. Add to it, change it.

Eleven – Accept success!  Don’t hold back.
Feel that you deserve to be all you can be.  Go for it.  Share it.  Tithe a portion of your income.  Share your blessings and they will grow.  Enjoy the process.

Twelve – Honor and gratitude for all that is.
Praise and thanks for life and whatever it delivers. Appreciate even that which you feel you don’t want.  Learn from everything, even mistakes, tragedies and pain.  Be grateful and then move on.

What are your dreams? What is holding you back from living your dreams? When you comment here we will send you a free mp3 of our music in gratitude.

Pondering Our Blessings

Dean meditating beach bowl

Pondering the many blessings we have is a focusing, choice-making process that allows us to recognize and appreciate the simple things around us that we take for granted.  For starters, we are a consciousness gifted with a functioning body that experiences the stimuli of life and interconnects us with other spiritual entities encased in similar protoplasmic form.  The life sentence we receive is a gift from the source energy of creation and as such is plugged into the constantly recycling energy fields flowing around us. We did not create ourselves, however once we recognize our own existences, we are responsible for what we use our heart/mind energy/our thoughts to focus on.  And we all know that what one focuses on expands.  Think about it.  What we fill our heads with is what naturally envelopes us.  So let’s keep our thoughts pure and saturated with a heart connection of unconditional love.  The whole world will reflect that love back to us in an expanded multiplicity of forms, bonds, opportunities, and connections.  Everyday brings a new sunrise.  ~ Dean Evenson
