Tune into a deeper purpose

Many people are conditioned to create a vision for a happy life and set out to realize it. Such a vision tends to include a profession and situation imagined to be fulfilling.  And yet, as life challenges arise, shake us up, our experience deepens, and curiosity arises.  People can go through whatever formalities are deemed necessary in life, but these never interfere with what is most important. When ready, we choose to go beyond the familliar to uncover something more.

As we realize we create our lives, it dawns that we also have the power to change how we create and what we see. It also grows clearer that some people create a bigger illusion of importance for themselves than others. Adopted filters block seeing more clearly. To allow ourselves to develop is to grow conscious of our capacity to look at things differently.  When ready, it dawns that laying a foundation for a whole new life is unrelated to conditioned ideas of who we are.

We exist for those for whom we exist.  Every encounter we create to help us recognize perception, explore new connections and opportunities for growth.  To perceive what is really going on in our lives and the Universe, one need only look into one's self without filters.  Everything we devise arises so we get-to-know thoughts, feelings, emotions and aspects of Self often missed.  Everything we uncover depends on the purity of our thoughts and the motive for asking.  All experience invites us to tap into more confidence so we do what feels right even if it scares us.

In Harry Potter: The Philosopher's Stone, some characters say "there is no such thing as magic."  Those that experience a different reality hold a different view on magic and what is possible. The wizard Dumbledore says, "The time comes Harry when we must choose between what is right and what is easy."

3 Ways to Clarify a New Reality

Changes are unfolding at an increasingly rapid pace.  This draws our attention to where in our lives we resist change and/or, where we are receptive or ready to respond differently to life. Consider 3 Ways to clarify and ground in a new reality.

1. Recognize where something is not working

Feeling restless implies something is not working in our lives. Each of us must clarify what 'not working' means or feels like for ourselves. When things are working, this is not necesarily about what the ego wants. What if 'not working' implies living unconsciously, using less than our full potential? We may get a funny feeling in the gut or signs in dreams that invite us to pay attention and listen differently.  We may feel imbalance, notice we are giving someone too much thought and feeling drained or exploited, expressing affection without getting reciprocity, putting too much time into work and being repeatedly overlooked for promotion or unrecognized. Our health or fitness level may be less than optimum although we put effort in. Feeling dissatisfied, ignored, or undervalued invites us to explore unconscious beliefs that create patterns. It also invites making the conscious decision to create a different reality.  Where attention goes, energy flows.

2. Explore Breathing Patterns

The rhythm of the breath is a language that echoes how true we are being to our soul. We can undertake different kinds of breathwork to get to know our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies on a whole new level.  What if the breath is the bridge to all systems, conscious and conscious, and we each have the power to engage the breath to gain new insight into ourselves?  The breath is a path to determine where we harbour blockages and also how to release them. When ready, opportunities arise to explore conscious  breathwork and decode the puzzles in our lives so we can feel better, more alive right where we are.

3. Reclaim inner power 

When we allow fear to run us, we are unconsciously giving our power away. This grows more apparent as we pay attentionto our thoughts, emotions, language, perception and life experience. Whenever we live in fear or are movated by fear, we give some of our power away.  If someone is not respecting our time, invalidating us (verbally, in writing, belittling) or generally not treating us with kindness and compassion, the moment is ripe to shift gears. Reclaiming inner power is about seeing about seeing ourselves as whole and complete, nurturing fearlessness in ourselves and others, speaking our truth, living in integrity and setting a standard for how we wish to be treated.  Living our Truth is about consciously choosing to be aware of true nature, feeling our way into life and treating everything with reverence. Anyone or anything that invites us to feel less than whole, is not belief or vision we have to adopt. We can choose to create a new reality. Recall teh 5 peopel we speand the most time with are the five people we are evolving into. take a close look at the characteristics of entourage. Is this the most desirable vision for a new reality or is it time to shift focus?

5 Tips to Reframe Change

People ask when is the right time to re-evaulate their vision of success, lifestyle or other areas of life.  The underlying questions we are asking are; 1) how often do we hear and respond to intuition? and how quickly do we manifest visions? Many books suggest its possible to create faster than is common practice.  If change beckons, yet we are indecisive or unsure about changes,  it is wise to examine different areas of our lives in  detail. For now, here are 5 tips; 

1. Read our emotions

If anxiety, fear or doubt are frequent, this is an invitation to step back and re-evaulate priorities, thoughts, beliefs and actions. Emotions tell us whetherwe favor logical or intutive choices.

2. Be aware of left & right brain 

To grow clearer about what is and is not working, it helps to recognize whether and how often we engage each side of the brain. Left brain is characterized by logic, reasoning and competition and survivial instincts.  Right brain is characterized by creative expression and imagination.

3. Understand the cosmic dynamics 

Manifesting your dreams and making life changes is not always in our control. Consider we each begin with elements of our dreams from conception.  This grows from DNA, gender, astrological data, socio-economic environment and health of the physical body. From birth, this “package” shapes a certain range of choices  we work with in our life. Although we have free will, we are born within parameters of choice we have teh pwoer to shape and change based on awareness.

4. Explore frequency & vibration

Tesla echos: ‘If [we] want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.' This is deep.  Every choice we make influences the vibration of our life direction.

5. Take greater responsibility

Imagine how life shifts as we take greater responsibility for our life choices, directions and related outcomes. What if we begin to see the role of our conscious and unconscious mind in perceived successes and failures? This invites us to revisit experiences from different views.

Be open to new things

Whith perfect timing, we grow more open and receptive, and every moment feels fresh and new.  We begin to recognize we choose to live attached to the familliar and craving more of the same or, we create our own opportunities to explore the unfamilliar, to blossom and grow.

In a physical sense, we measure time with a clock. Our body naturally functions on its own internal clock based on its energetic needs.  The logical, left-brain conditioning often prompts us to assume this is about sustenance and elimination, but the right brain and whole brain functioning know there is far more to it. Aside from the physical aspect of us, we are made up of other energy bodies that function outside of perceived physical time.

Being open to new things, implies unlearning and letting go of beliefs and attitudes we outgrow, getting back to basics. In truth, we are gradually opening from the inside out, revealing to ourselves more of the detail and potential of who we are.  We can only reveal to ourselves what we are energetically ready to handle.  We only interact with others based on our own level of consciousness and others function based on their own.

Interview with Ian Morris

As part of meditation, people are often surprised to discover the power and effectiveness of sound healing.  During my spiritual journey, tuning into specific frequencies has triggered major shifts. 

In this light, I am pleased to share an interview with Ian Morris,sound alchemist, founder and in-house creator of all music offered through Listening to Smile. Imagine that during the last four years, he has created a new album every month.   May the powerful inspiration keep flowing!

Pleasure to share this ancient wisdom.

Please offer a glimpse of your story...

I have over 20 years’ experience as a musician and have studied and worked in the performing arts field all of my life. I was raised around music and some say I was born with a natural gift of creativity. What lead me down this path of sound healing and frequency was my own personal struggles and journey through chronic illness and the anxiety and depression that came from being so sick. I explored sound and frequency using pure tones and then began creating music with these tones and other sacred frequencies to help facilitate my own healing. The results I experienced were astonishing beyond anything I could ever imagine. My family and friends noticed the miraculous change in my health and this led them to inquire more about what I was doing different. They wanted to experience this too.....and thus, Listening to Smile was born.

Its incredible to recognize that facing challenges is often the key to building the inner strength necessary to accept and express our innate gifts. How did this creative work take shape for you?

I began working with small groups in my community and studied how frequency affects many different ailments, illness, and dis-ease of both mind and body. I even built a sound/frequency table so that the body could be completely immersed in the vibration of the tones and frequencies.

No wonder people are finding specific sound frequencies complement other types of emotional release work. Breathwork, aromatherapy and sounds, all help us to let go of what we outgrow and align energetically with what matters. What sort of feedback do you receive?

I took feedback and input from doctors, psychologists, and holistic practitioners to streamline and solidify my services. My goal was to create a customizable experience. As the programs began to develop the clients were shocked and elated by the results. This work grew into the live sound healing events called “Sonic Meditations.” As more and more people wanted to experience his frequency music the program expanded into an international community.

"Sonic Meditations"...I love the vibration of this! How has this affected lives of people you know and yourself?

I have seen first-hand how frequency music changes lives, not only in the hundreds of people from all over the world that I have worked with, but also in my very own life with dyslexia and illness.  Listening to Smile frequency music is transformational. The possibilities are endless for how Listening to Smile music can transform your life and heal your body, mind, and spirit.

Share some key milestones...

Some key milestones or pivotal moments were when I realized that in the first 6 months in to doing Listening to Smile full time, how powerful to work with the frequencies everyday.  Sometimes I would work with them 8-10 hours a day.  This provided me with huge release work and healing.  It is one of the reasons why I am so passionate about this work today.  I know it works and that the results last.  Another milestone was two years ago when Listening to Smile went international, into Australia, Ireland, and Canada.  Earlier this year we expanded even more into Belgium, Scotland, and Mexico.  This is significant for us because we can see how our work is beneficial to different cultures and demographics on a larger scale.  

Sound itself, without interference is endless flow. Listening to Smile echoes and awakening the infinite nature of true self. Now, which of your 5 familiar senses is most dominant? 

I would say my hearing is definitely most dominate. 

Whan did you grow aware of this?

From a very early age, my mother and father bathed me in music.  Everything from Miles Davis, John Coltrane, to Bob Dylan and the Beatles.  I grew up with a appreciation to music.  Later in life when I took up instruments, I already had a foundation from being exposed to so much amazing music early in life.  The crossover was very easy to becoming a musician.  I believe musicians listen to music differently. 

Its true that music touches us emotionally in ways words alone do not. How would you say musicians hear music differently?

It relates to the sensitivity of the ear.  We hear more acutely, what many people do not pick up on. The next step for me was becoming a sound engineer. I was involved in the mixing and mastering of my music.  I learned to separate the instruments in the recordings and to look for any imperfections and look for any creative ways to portray a certain feeling or message.   After 20+ years of doing this, I think my hearing has just become more sensitive than the average listener.   

What is your intention in doing this? What kinds of benefits do you see or envision?

Our intention with Listening to Smile is to bring education and awareness of frequency as a modality of healing to people all around the world.  We facilitate this through our healing music and affiliate programs.  Our affiliates interact with thousands of people each month through meditations and sound healing.   Using our frequency minded music, we have seen recovery from several illness and conditions some example are pancreatic cancer, autism, severe anxiety, and depression.  I myself was dealing with an autoimmune issue along with chronic illness and found powerful results with breath work, sound healing, and meditation.  In 2012, I was 312 lbs and in a year I lost over 110 lbs by utilizing breath work, sound healing, and meditation.  This again is why I can be so passionate about what I do.  Through my own experiences I know this works.  

How do you imagine this complements breath work and neural therapy that focus on emotional trauma release?

Frequency is the great disrupter.  It has this amazing ability to block out fear and anxiety by simply blocking our past stories by creating a space where we are sitting in the eye of the storm in the mind.  When sound healing is applied with intention setting and declarative statements, there are amazing breakthroughs with release work and healing that can lead to reprogramming the mind.  This in turn can give positive tools to effectively deal with pain and trauma in a completely different way.  

Has listening to Smile music ever triggered  past life recall or other spiritual experiences?

Yes!  There have been moments during sessions where I have seen myself in ancient settings (Egypt and Atlantis) working with sound tables and devices.  Doing what I do now is almost second nature and feels very familiar to me and always has. 

Please share examples of where music has positively affected the health and well- being. (link to sample would be helpful)

  390.6Hz - It was given to me during one of my meditations.  It so strongly came through to me that I had to work with it immediately.  I started using tone generators with headphones and then transitioned it into my own songs.  The benefits were immediately noticeable, where it completely cleared out the cobwebs of my mind and my body had a huge release.  It set up an emotional vibration that it would be impossible for fear, anxiety. or worry to be present.  Here is a link to one of our most purchased and licensed tracks in our catalog,  "Belief Code 21."  This frequency is beneficial for stress relief and relaxation.  

How do you see Humanity (past, present, future)?

I have always considered myself a time traveler.  I definitely have a strong connection to different periods and times.  I pull from these different periods and times for my influence in the work that I do now.  I am mindfully-connected to the past, present, and future simultaneously.  

What a wonderful reminder that on some level, time travel occurs between the ears and the imagination. Listening to silence and then, mindful music enables us to tune into this. Why do you feel more people are not aware ofthe benefits of sound healing?

To be honest, I think it's because people think it's too easy.  They believe it can't possibly be that simple to just use headphones and listen to frequency. We have been raised in a society where the answer have always come from a pill or prescription.  What we are seeing take place right now is the crumbling of this empire.  I believe people are kind of in a discombobulated state.  I think that we just have to do our best with helping people to be curious and trust themselves and their intuition.  

Oh yes! Many people in the West are certainly conditioned to make complicated what is simple.

Are you familiar with the documentary film, Heal? If so, what are your impressions? 

I am indeed familiar with the documentary film, Heal.  It is absolutely amazing!  Joe Dispenza and Medical Medium are in that film and they are some of my favorite speakers.  

Agree whole-heartedly. It is a timely piece of work that invites the public to recognize the value of alternative approaches to healing abd how they can complement other forms of healing and self-healing.

Have you heard of the sound healer? (If not, highly recommend  this film).

Yes, however I have not seen it.  I will definitely check it out upon your recommendation. 


What insight or advice would you like to offer?

Through my own personal experience and the work that I have been doing with Listening to Smile over the last 5 years, I believe stress is the first place that we have to target for true healing.  I absolutely believe that sound healing has something to offer every person on this planet.  From the time of our conception until the time of our birth we become acclimated with this reality with sound and vibration in our mothers womb.  This is one of the most natural and powerful ways that we can co-create the healing in ourselves with Spirit. 

Share anything else you would like to add.

Every month Listening to Smile produces frequency minded music in the themes of the 
astrological energy.  Our goal is to further align our themes and CD frequencies to the direction and greatest needs of the collective consciousness by working in tandem with monthly astrological events and universal energies.  In turn, our monthly Sonic Meditations for 2019 will be created with frequency selections with the potential to best assist in integrating the current cosmic conditions and maximizing the divine flow for growth and evolution set forth by the markers of our greater cosmos.
