Music is the universal language that brings us all together.
You can be anywhere in the world or just hear a song with a language that varies from yours but if you enjoy the music it doesn’t matter what they’re saying.
Over the summer I joined a mission team to a village in the mountains of Guatemala called Chisec. The village people only spoke Q’eqchi’. It didn’t take long for the the team to spread out and start playing with the children with different games like soccer and crafts. I lingered back a bit because I noticed a beautiful little girl that wouldn’t play with anyone. She shied away from the team members and sat hugging a wooden pole that was holding up the roof of their home.
I made it a goal to get her to open up and smile before we left so I tactfully sat a couple feet away pretending to watch the soccer game. My soccer skills aren’t the best anyways. I noticed her look in my direction but I didn’t acknowledge it for fear of scaring her away.
A song came to me, Jesus Loves Me, in Spanish that I had just learned from the children’s home in Coban. I started singing the song hoping it would get her attention and it worked! She inched closer to me with each note until she was right beside me. She reached up to play with my hair and I just turned and smiled.
This was such a profound moment for me. It made me realize how important music is. In that moment I understood how we can get the whole world to open up and come closer to the truth…
Love is Music and Music is Love and together both will tear down any walls ever build that separate mankind.
That is the answer to world peace. We are all in this together.
Cheers to the musicians that bring us all together as a unified body of one.
I LOVE so much about this artist I don’t even know where to start.
Dub Fx, Benjamin Stanford, is killing the “LIVE LOOPING” game. What is this you ask? Looping essentially means to dub hence “Dub” Fx. It’s when a musician sits in front of you with a hand full of instruments and they create a sound live then loop it and string along more sound through different methods creating and painting a masterpiece of music before your very eyes. It’s magic to me.
Dub Fx is in a league of his own and has boosted his rating in my book because a lot of the bass and what sounds like drums in his music comes from his voice by beatboxing. It’s amazing. He only uses two instruments consisting of a loop station and a guitar but the majority of his sound is organic vocals. Other sounds you can expect from him are: Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, and Dubstep.
Icing on top of the cake?
HIS LYRICS ARE INSPIRATIONAL AND PROMOTE WORLD PEACE.
Aussie, musician, peace ambassador… you can’t ask for a better show to see than this.
Hurry up and catch him live on a Friday~
Beyond The Stars Palace, October 24th in Gendale, CA.
While sitting in the Dasher Memorial Heart Center today the intercom breaks my families conversation with an alarming, “CODE BLUE (pause) FOURTH FLOOR”. We were waiting for results after my step dad’s open heart surgery…
Code Blue: when a patient is “crashing”
Our hearts skipped a beat and it took a second for us to realize thankfully we were on the THIRD floor. Whew.
Earlier this morning we had a very nice and very detailed RN come and speak with the family. He told us a story of his wife who had a similar surgery. He said she didn’t drink, ran marathons, and even ate healthy (opposite of our patient) and still had to get the same surgery done later in life. His point was that no matter what we control in our life sometimes the universe has plans for us that we cannot control no matter what precautions we have sewn prior as preparation.
This had me thinking once again about pre destiny and fate. I mean what do we actually have control over?
Also, sitting in a hospital for a day waiting to see if your family member survives a surgery puts life into perspective real quick. Just in case you forget. It makes you think about death and loss and well… what matters most. Family. You can’t take your “stuff” to the grave with you so materialistic things are irrelevant. I empathized and envisioned how it must feel to have a surgery like that. Knowing that the possibility of not waking up is possible. Sending your mind through a collage of memories and moments dear to your heart or maybe loss and regret depending upon the person and their life lived.
I’m personally not really good with direct emotional support. My style is a little more tough. I suppose it’s because I don’t let others see me cry and I have always preferred to be alone when sick. I just deal with things better alone and work through it.
As I looked at my mom she had dark circles under her eyes from lack of sleep but still beautiful as always but a little more fragile than I would have liked to see her. It’s weird – the older I get the more I realize how much we have in common. We are starting to finish each others sentences. I’m turning into her as the years pass. Good thing she’s awesome.
In order to relieve some stress I do what I always do and hit the gym for a long run until my mind is calm and my breathing is level.
After my workout I laid in the sauna and listened to one of my favorite classical pieces of all time…
Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata
I find peace and comfort in this song and all is right in the world again.
My step dad is going to be fine by the way because he is a true OG. Ya feel me? With a spirit that will keep you laughing. 🙂

In 1863 one of England’s finest schooners left the port of her royal majesties naval headquarters on a simple scouting mission to survey the Indies for further colonization. The ship and her entire crew were never heard from again. Other ships documented seeing strange glowing lights when returning to port. The forgotten story of her UFO Abduction by a race of sentient Aliens will now be known. (The Story Behind The Design)

Crazy smooth transitions for such a funky dirty sound. I love it.
Defunk mixes old school sound with new school glitch hop leaving you sitting there like a puppy with that cute head tilt wondering what’s next. Based in Calgary, Canada Defunk is on Defire and I don’t foresee him skipping a beat any time soon.
I love the unpredictable sounds and cool vibes created in each track. A league of their own as they say…
Catch them live October 30th in Denver, CO with two other great acts you don’t want to miss. This will be a sick trifecta featuring: DubFx & Opiuo – What DaFunk?!?! (Oh no you didn’t) Oh yes I did.
You are so very welcome for the heads up! ❤

(Great goal to add to the bucket list)
This is a lot of preparation and conditioning. You first start with a healthy diet and then a daily exercise plan. You are more mindful of your daily routines. The most important above all of this is discipline and it is fueled by the mind. You get it in your mind that you can and will do something and will succeed. With daily modifications you will slowly but surely reach your end goal.
This conversion is comparable to the strategic positive influence proposal. Everything you watch, say, and hear effects what you are or will become.
You’re highly influenced by your surroundings: family, job, location, media….
Don’t focus on things you can’t control or talk about minuscule details. Look at the big picture.
Govern your mind and condition it to think positively.
It will take time and discipline to indoctrinate a positive mindset but over time you will influence a more positive you which will manifest a happier life. This change will influence your friends and loved ones as well in a delightful way.
Where focus goes energy flows. Be what you want to see. Mirror what you respect.
We can change the world through changing ourselves first.
