Enhancing Creativity CD review


Thanks to Arianna Skye for today's review!!

I've decided to re-post a review I did awhile ago when I was a contributor to the Romantic Inks blog. This is not an ordinary review. Today, I am reviewing Enhancing Creativity, a subliminal self-help music album by Steven Halpern.
Here's the blurb from Mr. Halpern's website:
New ideas, insights and solutions spontaneously pop into your mind. Tap into your creative wellspring with this extraordinary recording.
Recommended by Mark Victor Hansen and other leading success coaches. Enhanced with a series of short, positive suggestions, recorded subliminally.
Recently, a bout of writer's block plagued me. Remembering a suggestion from one of the other members of GRRWG, I decided to download this album. I've always been a little skeptical of these self-help CDs that claim to have subliminal suggestions in them. You know the kind. Lose weight, stop smoking, become a better lover, etc. I've been struggling with my creative flow recently, so I decided what the heck did I have to lose besides a couple of dollars? Not like I was selling my soul to the devil or anything. I was delighted to find I could download the MP3 version of the album for $8.98 on Amazon. How cool is that?

So, with one jaded eye and the other optimistic, I downloaded the album to my iPod and set up a playlist. The melodic sounds drifted to my ears. Soothing and calming. Absolutely peaceful. Wow, I think to myself. My mind is clear and my fingers are itching. By golly, it really works!

Pianos, strings, violins and many other melodic instruments, all interlaced with subliminal affirmations to boost creativity, kept my mind focused and energized while maintaining a peaceful soul. I kid you not! I have found that while listening to this album, I become relaxed and the worries drift away. With that, my mind is able to concentrate on writing. With this CD, I am definitely in the zone. Of all the subliminal music I've heard in my thirty plus years, this one ranks pretty darn high. So, Mr. Halpern, I just want to say that you now have a new fan.

If you'd like information on Steven Halpern and his other musical works, please feel free to visit his website. He's got an extensive list of subliminal self-improvement albums to choose from, including Enhancing Intimacy. Perfect for that man (or woman) in your life.
May you have a joyful - and creative - day!

Character

It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.
