It was October of 2012 that I told my music producer and friend, Daniel Barrett, that my desire to make more music was dead. I didn’t feel inspired or connected to the muse. I was happy with the four albums of healing music I had already created, but I didn’t see any more on the horizon.
I felt done.
As we talked, I had a sneaking suspicion that I may be deceiving myself. After all, self sabotage is rampant in virtually each of us and we usually don’t even know we are doing it.
Daniel suggested we find a way to ramp up my energy for music. He didn’t know how, but he felt there was a solution.
“I know how,” I told him.
I did, too.
I knew a way to jump start the muse, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it.
He asked me to explain.
I took a deep breath and said, “I can set the intention to record five new songs by Christmas.”
Christmas was only two months away. It would be a miracle to write and record five new songs by then – especially starting from zero – and certainly after exhausting myself having just completed my fourth album, The Healing Song.
Daniel didn’t miss a beat.
“Why not go for ten songs?”
That made me gasp. It would be raising the bar even for me. I had already broken records by creating four albums in less than two years. Four miracles were plenty. But I accepted the challenge. We agreed that I would strive to create ten original songs within two months, and together we would record them to create my fifth album.
We both felt the exhilarating energy of having a goal that scared us and yet delighted us.
We both felt expectant, uncertain, open and willing.
But we had no idea how a new album would come out of nothing.
Now here’s where the story gets really interesting…
Remember, I didn’t have any ideas for new songs or any passion for new music. I felt tapped out. Yet the new intention “called forth” more music. The new goal stirred my creative self. Within days I had new songs coming to me. Within weeks I had almost two dozen ideas.
I couldn’t turn off the creative juices!
I would be sitting, reading a book on my iPad, and suddenly a song idea would enter my consciousness. I was smart enough to stop everything and write it down. (Always take action, remember.)
Other times I felt inspired to check out early or vintage rock and roll, what’s called rockabilly music. I simply followed the muse to see what occurred. I loved the searching, exploring and learning. (Always follow inspiration, too.)
Within weeks I had over two dozen pretty good songs. From those, I picked nine that I thought were solid. I left a tenth idea open to inspirational improvisation in the studio.
I felt ready to record album number five!
My band — not really “mine” but they were the same musicians who recorded Strut! and The Healing Song with me — got together again. We went into the studio on December 18th and 19th — right before Christmas, you’ll note — and recorded ten new tracks.
I’m told music doesn’t usually come together this quickly, or easily, or with this much energy and focus. But we got together in the studio and made space for magic to happen around my songs.
The result is my fifth music album, titled Sun Will Rise.
And it feels like another miracle.
When I held the finished audio CD in my hands, and listened to the original music I wrote and performed, brought to life with the musicians who supported me, I started to cry.
To think that this was created out of “thin air” is astonishing. To think that the songs are so good and the music so amazing and the messages so relevant, just makes me stop and stare in awe and gratitude.
I am grateful beyond belief.
It’s yet another miracle.
Miracles are indeed happening all the time.
This story is living proof of it.
And it all begins with an intention.
In case you are curious, here are the stories behind each track on Sun Will Rise http://www.healingrockmusic.com/:
“You Gotta!” is self-help rock and roll. It’s fun, upbeat, and carries the message that “you gotta” take action. Since I’m a big proponent of action, this song and its message felt like the right lead for the new album. Thanks to “my band” – drummer Joe Vitale, bass player Glenn Fukunaga, lead guitarist Daniel Barrett – this song opens with a “you gotta dance to this” feel. Add saxophone by Greg Williams and this one is irresistibly delicious! You gotta hear it!
“Sun Will Rise” came to me “out of the blue,” as I held a guitar and just started to sing what came into my being. When I first played it for Daniel, he was speechless. He said it had the potential to be a radio hit. My staff says my message to the world is to have faith, that the “sun will rise” again. Your current reality is just that: current. It’ll change. The sun will rise again. This song is your reminder.
“The Secret” isn’t based on the movie I was in of the same name. Instead, it was prompted by a haunting song by Leonard Cohen. His song had the hypnotic refrain “Everybody knows…” but his lyrics were negative. His dark song is a great one to commit suicide to. I wanted something hypnotic but with a positive message. I wanted something healing. The result is what I call “The Secret” and you know it will do you good to listen to it. 🙂
“Sperichil” is rockabilly music. It’s pure fun. No special message in the lyrics but the voice and the vibe is all about be happy now! The name is simply the early spelling of the word “spiritual.” I surprised myself recording this song as I spontaneously howled like a wolf during parts of it. There is a happy contagiousness to this track that simply makes me smile and feel good. Isn’t that what life is all about? Isn’t that healing music? Be happy now. Smile! Dance! Love!
“Expectations” is a hypnotic intermission where I played a special double-neck guitar, where the top is a regular guitar and the bottom is a baritone guitar. With the professionals behind me on this one, the result is something I could listen to all day long. When I first heard it in the studio, I said, “Call this one Expectations, because it suggests something is about to happen, but you don’t know what.” You are free to expect whatever you want, positive or negative, and this music helps you feel the moment. Talk about healing!
“My Electric Car” is about my relationship to my electric car (which I’ve written about on this blog before). I love this song because of the lyrics and the blues rock music the band came up with. I really believe this one could become a gas guzzler’s anthem. You gotta hear it. There are moments in this track that send shivers of joy up my spine. It’s an example of how music becomes magic. Whew!
“Train of Women” is a rock ballad about a man who faces his fears and falls in love. It’s about one hundred and fifty women, all wearing bikinis, who come to see him. He is at first afraid, asking for everything from a crocodile to a body guard to being taken to Area 51, but by the end he falls in love. The old saying is true, what looks like your demon is really your angel in disguise. This song is fun, fast, funny and more. Call it a Rorschach test song. Whatever you get from it, is what you get from it. It’s a mirror. It’s “Healing Music” at it’s best. Rock on!
“Isaac the Psychic” is my attempt to create a Shel Silverstein – Johnny Cash “Boy Named Sue” kind of song. I came up with a character, and a story, and a funny chorus, and weaved it into a song. My band — the experts that they are — created a Reggae upbeat rhythm and the whole thing came together. It’s funny and memorable. You’ll smile listening to it. After all, I’m so psychic, I know you’re reading this. 🙂
“Super Heroes” came to me after my guitar teacher, Mathew Dixon, taught me a new chord progression. I wrote words to that progression. Since I had just met actor/bodybuilder/Hulk Lou Ferrigno, and actor/Superman Dean Cain, I turned the song into messages from their characters. This is another feel good, relaxing song. It could be the theme to a television show. It’s about you being the new super hero. Don’t wait for a hero. Be one now.
“Ti Amo” was written for my love, Nerissa. I felt the urge to write a love song and thought, what better way to do it than to think of who I love and just write a song for her. I did. I believe anyone can feel the love in this one. Nerissa says she does. Love heals.
All of the above is a reminder that miracles are possible for all of us.
Yes, even you.
I created this fifth album of healing songs by declaring an intention. I didn’t have any reason or motivation or evidence that I could write ten new (and good, IMHO) songs in two months. But declaring an intention “called forth” all this music.
You can do this, too.
What do you want to attract?
What do you want to “call forth”?
What miracle would be cool to experience?

What’s the right question to ask in virtually any situation?
The right question is the one that moves your energy (and vibration) upward.
Most people ask “what if down” questions.
What if this goes wrong?
What if it doesn’t work out?
What if she leaves me?
Those questions take your energy (vibration) down. It closes your mind from seeing possibilities.
But the right question to ask is the one that takes you UP.
What if this goes right?
What if this works out?
What if she stays with me?
Those questions take your mind in an expansive, possibility thinking new direction.
The best way to understand “What if UP” thinking is to get Mindy Audlin’s new book, What If It All Goes Right?. That’s her and me below.
What if her book changes your life forever in a positive way?
What if you went and ordered it right now?
PS – If it means anything to you, I wrote the foreword to Mindy’s book. It’s about how I taught the Russians what if UP thinking. You’ve got to read that.
People have been asking for scientific evidence for the Law of Attraction ever since the movie The Secret hit the Internet four years ago last month.
I’m excited to report it’s here in the form of a readable book.
I was in Utah last week visiting my Miracles Coaching team when I decided to walk off dinner by going to a bookstore. There I found the brand new book, The Science Behind the Secret: Decoding the Law of Attraction, by Travis S. Taylor, Ph.D.
That book kept me up all night. It’s riveting. Taylor is a physics, aerospace and electrical engineer. He worked for the Department of Defense and NASA. He also writes sci-fi books. After he saw the movie The Secret, he began exploring the history and evidence for the Law of Attraction.
According to Taylor, the Law of Attraction is not new. He can trace it all the way back to Jainism in ancient India, about four thousand years ago. He follows its development through Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) on to around the mid-1800s, when people such as Helena Blavatsky, James Allen, and William Walker Atkinson specifically used the term “Law of Attraction” in their books. Taylor continues his historic overview right through the 1980s, with books by Jerry and Esther Hicks.
Also according to Taylor, the Law of Attraction is not a law. He declares that the “law” is more an adage; a philosophical or psychological maxim. He doesn’t dismiss it; he simply says it’s not a law by strict scientific proof. There’s no empirical evidence for it.
But Dr. Taylor doesn’t stop there.
Turns out he’s a fan of The Secret. He calls the teachers in it (apparently even me) “Yoda’s.” He really likes Louise Hay (who isn’t in the movie). He says you can influence reality by how you think. His entire book is a respected scientist’s view of how the Law of Attraction (law, maxim, or adage) actually works.
He goes on to explain new theories of the brain, and of reality, and states you can influence reality by holding a thought with emotion and imagery. In essence what you are doing is sending a “qwiff” into the energy field we’re all in. That qwiff (a quantum wave function) goes out and gets “attracted” to (or seeks and finds) other similar qwiffs. The result is often a new reality.
Stop and think about this…
Stating there are new theories of the brain, as well as of human experience, reveals that “reality” must be a construct that matches whatever we say.
In other words, if you believe that the brain is like a computer (called a Turing Machine), you look at it as you do your Mac or PC. It’s a mechanical device that works in a linear way.
But if you trash that model of reality and say the brain is more like what physicist Roger Penrose and anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff say, that human consciousness is a Orchestrated Objective Reduction (a type of quantum computer), then you now have a new, empowering theory: that the human mind impacts reality.
Again, please note that these scientists are all trying to figure out how the world works. Also note that they are creating theories and then testing them. Further note that as long as they believe in their theories, they can find proof for them.
Doesn’t that in itself prove what you think is what you create?
According to Dr. Taylor, who prefers the quantum brain theory of everything, you can create a new reality for yourself by imagining it’s already fulfilled. This creates an energy field that gets launched into the Universe, on a mission to find whatever it needs to become your new reality.
This fits with the concept that photons and other particles don’t organize until they are observed. It appears that when you state an intention, you help organize them. This is what I called “Nevillizing” (named after author Neville Goddard) in my book, The Attractor Factor. This is what gets everyone excited, including me.
Want a new car?
Imagine you already have it.
Want more money now?
Imagine you already have it.
What a new job?
Imagine you are already working it.
Want better health?
Imagine it’s already here.
Want a new bike?
Dr. Taylor writes —
“The right way to use your quantum brain is to set up the thought pattern of the reality that you actually have that new bicycle. You must envision yourself riding that new bicycle. You just fantasize how it feels to ride the new bicycle…This is how you set up a qwiff to get a response from the universe in a positive manner.”
By focusing your energized thought on the finished goal of what you desire, you send a type of cosmic order into the Universe. As you act on the ideas and opportunities that come to you, after you place this focused intention into the world, you tend to attract what you desire into your reality.
Of course, this is nothing new. Here’s what the mystic Neville wrote in his 1944 book, Feeling Is The Secret:
“To impress the subconscious with the desirable state you must assume the feeling that would be yours had you already realized your wish.”
Or, as Neville hand signed in one of his books: “Assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled.”
All of this is to say the Law of Attraction is real.
It may not be considered a law (yet) by strict scientific experiment, but it definitely works.
This is why you must monitor your thoughts and choose the ones you prefer. Those thoughts – especially when combined with emotion and image and focused on – tend to go out into the world as “qwiffs” and attract a match to create a physical new reality.
This is why new tools such as Mindy Audlin’s “What if UP” thinking are so important. What you focus your thoughts on with emotion tends to come to pass. This is why you tend to attract what you love, fear, or hate. There’s raw emotion behind those thoughts. Since you have a choice, why not choose the high road?
In fact, it’s so important to keep “upping” your thoughts to better feeling ones that I saw this sign on the sales floor of my Miracles Coaches offices:
Again, the Law of Attraction is real.
Don’t call it a law if that makes you feel better.
But the operating principle behind The Secret works.
Taylor’s book is a fun, fast read. He’s a friendly, conversational writer. He knows his readers are not physicists. He’s patient. He’s kind. He’s wise.
I love his book. It’s the best one I’ve seen yet explaining the science behind how your thinking creates your reality.
I also like that he included a chapter about skeptics. He urges you to ignore them. They aren’t helping anyone. They are very often sinister, anecdotal, and without logic.
Instead, Dr. Taylor advises to “…focus our efforts on the brighter , happier side of things and simply test our theories. The outcome will shine light on the darker corners of humanity and wash them out.”
Einstein put it this way in 1954 –
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
You can help yourself break free with Dr. Taylor’s book. If you’ve been looking for scientific evidence for the Law of Attraction or the movie The Secret, you’ll find it in the pages of The Science Behind the Secret.
You’ll find the book in book stores and of course online at Amazon.
Meanwhile, watch the thoughts you “qwiff” into the world.
What you think does make a difference.
And that’s no secret.
