Thinking Magically™ | Ancient Magic, Modern Tools™ – 60 Minutes to Rapture

Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

                                                                                    – Ludwig van Beethoven

As you know, my Ancient Magic | Modern Tools™ philosophy embodies the notion that the ways of magic and spellbinding of long ago can be maximized by the machines of today. We’re going to magically blend two concepts I have discussed separately before and create an insanely irresistible meditative tool for you to easily and powerfully use everyday to kick-start your way into the world; a straightforward strategy for bringing some needed reflection, deliberation, and focused time into your life.

In one of my prior articles, Sacred Music for Hallowed Doorways, I discussed using music to underscore and stimulate where you are in the world. You can read this prior offering here:

I have also previously outlined the 12 fundamental areas of your life:

1.  Travel/Adventure
2.  Health
3.  Personal Growth/Education
4.  Love/Relationship with Others
5.  Creativity/Self-Expression
6.  Faith/Religion
7.  Work/Career
8.  Lifestyle/Possessions
9.  Money
10.  World Situation/Environment
11.  Paranormal Abilities
12.  Philosophy of Life

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN SOUNDTRACK TO ACHIEVE RAPTURE

STEP ONE: The first mighty task to accomplish is selecting the perfect song for each one of these 12 categories. When I say perfect, I mean for where you are right now. Your selection can always change later on to suit how you continue to expand. To get you started and inspire you to create your own playlist, here are my choices:

1.  Travel/Adventure
SONG:  George Bailey (Jana Stanfield) (05:03)

2.  Health
SONG:  Glitter in the Air (P!nk) (05:09)

3.  Personal Growth/Education
SONG:  Return to Innocence (Enigma) (04:55)

4.  Love/Relationship with Others
SONG:  Lift the Wings (Bill Whelan) (05:05)

5.  Creativity/Self-Expression
SONG:  Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen) (06:16)

6.  Faith/Religion
SONG:  Show Me The Way (Dennis DeYoung) (04:38)

7.  Work/Career
SONG:  Let Me Fall (Cirque du Soleil) (04:18)

8.  Lifestyle/Possessions
SONG:  I Want it All (Queen) (03:59)

9.  Money
SONG:  Highwayman (Jimmy Webb) (02:54)

10.  World Situation/Environment
SONG:  Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World Medley (E.Y. Harburg/Harold Arlen, Bob Thiele/George David Weiss) (05:05)

11.  Paranormal Abilities
SONG:  Bring Me To Life (Amy Lee, Ben Moody, David Hodges) (04:13)

12.  Philosophy of Life
SONG:  I’ve Been This Way Before (Neil Diamond) (04:05)

STEP TWO: Create a playlist of your 12 chosen songs. Listen to all 12 songs (either in the order of your choice or shuffled) in one sitting. This will take you on an emotional and fierce journey through the 12 categories.

(OPTIONAL) STEP THREE: Rather than simply sitting and listening to your 12 songs, take this technique to the next level by adding exercise or movement. You can easily complete at least a 2 − 3 mile walk while listening to this (depending on your health, of course – make sure you get your doctor’s approval if there are any concerns). Think of this as a magnificent walking meditation.

The foregoing two (or three if you’re an overachiever) steps will readily take you on a new adventure and recalibrate your brain to reach new heights. Enjoy the thrill ride!
