March Moves! AnamNews – Update Feb 2013

Well, that was a quick one! February 2013 has whizzed by in the blink of an eye, and March month is almost upon us. February featured lots of excitement for Anamsound and it started with a very special Mooncycles Workshop gathering on February 10th, to usher in the Chinese New Year of the Water Snake (more about the Snake later). Very peaceful, and spiritual. Next two new items put on the Menu bar entitled Soul Sounds, and Talks. The aim of the Soul Sounds section is to introduce more aural beats/sounds to the Anamsound site, after all, the website is about sound in all it's glorious...

Creativity…

Creativity... Do not fear your ability to create, or your capacity to imagine even your wildest dreams. Mull over in your heart and mind your fondest, deepest desires, and strive to make them part of your present reality. Soar above fearful limitations and thinking, so that like the eagle your wingspan is increased to such an extent, that your divine gift obscures the sun. Do not cultivate doubt, or listen to the negativity of gainsayers. Instead, remain strong, firm in the knowledge that your kernel of divine light will be ignited into a raging flame of creativity, as you imagine and create...

Water!

Water... Water, strongest of all the elements. It's ability to ebb and go with the flow makes it sometimes overwhelming, but also fiercely protective. It draws out fury, but remains so silent, as if it does not move. It is a living thing, necessary as air to our well-being as it purifies, cleanses and inspires! It is constant, yet unpredictable; jealous, fierce, vengeful, yet nurturing, all encompassing and powerful. It demands great loyalty, but offers none, and will consume all in it's path if so inclined. It is present throughout all life, even in the barren womb of the desert;...

Happy Solar Return! otherwise known as Happy Birthday!

  A Solar Return is the time each year when the sun returns to the same place in the sky that it was in at birth. It's like a personal power pack, or reservoir of healing energy that isn't available to you on any other day of the year. Most people know it as a birthday!! and the custom of lighting candles, making a wish and blowing them out is symbolic of using this truly regenerative energy to focus your mind on what you really want to happen in your personal life in the following 12 months. When you gather with others on your Solar Return in celebration of the date of your birth,...

My Funny Valentine…

In this 2nd month of the year, February from the Latin "februum," meaning purification, it feels appropriate to me to alter my physical, emotional and mental, psychic, and spiritual states of reality not by de-toxng, but by embracing different ways and thoughts that are healthy, and will help me to grow as a sentient being, having an earthly experience in a physical structure. To this end, I am now looking at February and it's meaning; St. Valentine,  a supposed C3 saint martyred by a Roman Emperor, and the hugely commercialised day named in his honour. In the northern hemisphere, February...

How Many Ways Do I Love You?…

Today, my thoughts have rested on the word LOVE, and all it's mystical, diverse connotations, that most of us have experienced at some point in our lives. At first, I wanted to write a highly academic/theoretical piece about the abstraction of the concept of love to satisfy the intellectual part of my character. However, I quickly realised that it would  probably sound dry, and emotionless to most readers. I also understood that I could write forever about a subject that has been written, debated, and sung about extensively since humans learned how to write, speak and sing. Everybody...
