“The Silver Bullet” Shift It!

… a straightforward solution containing extreme effectiveness

It is amazing to me how listening to a soundtrack can completely change your life! For the last two years I have been inspired to create therapeutic soundtracks to assist people in eradicating bad habits and establishing new patterns in their life to inspire them towards their desired goals and outcomes. Here is what one client sent me after receiving their Shift It! Soundtrack:

Toby–
I really don’t have words for the experience of my first listen. It was like it was the music of my whole life–the one I’ve lived, and the one I’ve yet to live. I mean, yowza. And the gongs! And that one riff that just shows up, like a psychedelic howdy or an ayahuasca tip of the hat.
You’re a f—ing genius.
Thank you so very, very much.

The Process

Each soundtrack is custom-made after an extensive consultation with a person desiring transformation. In this consultation we assess the conditions that are problematic and the desired outcome of the client. After the assessment I go into the studio and create a soundtrack that unwinds the problematic patterns, activates parts of the brain that promote creativity and lay in music that promotes inspiration, focus and what ever else is needed on a case by case basis. Each and every soundtrack is custom and unique.

“We’re using music to better understand brain function in general,” said Daniel Levitin, a prominent psychologist who studies the neuroscience of music at McGill University in Montreal. Listening to music feels good, but can that translate into physiological benefit? Levitin and colleagues published a meta-analysis of 400 studies in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, suggesting the answer is yes.

In one study reviewed, researchers studied patients who were about to undergo surgery. Participants were randomly assigned to either listen to music or take anti-anxiety drugs. Scientists tracked patient’s ratings of their own anxiety, as well as the levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

The results: The patients who listened to music had less anxiety and lower cortisol than people who took drugs. Levitin cautioned that this is only one study, and more research needs to be done to confirm the results, but it points toward a powerful medicinal use for music.

“The promise here is that music is arguably less expensive than drugs, and it’s easier on the body and it doesn’t have side effects,” Levitin said.

Levitin and colleagues also highlighted evidence that music is associated with immunoglobin A, an antibody linked to immunity, as well as higher counts of cells that fight germs and bacteria.

Taking into consideration the effectiveness of random music as shown by Dr. Levitin and adding to that the power of conscious intention…WOW as another client commented:
