Living back in the big smoke, after our stint on the road last year, one of the first things that became apparent while living the city life once again is the pace, the intensity, and how everyone seems to be so disconnected from one another.
It has an air of selfishness, individualism and competitiveness. But how can a city filled with millions and millions of people feel so isolating?
Connection. A simple 10 letter word that, in our opinion, holds the secret to happiness.
For years we were seeking happiness from external sources hoping that one day we would find that thing that would be the answer to all our problems. However, what we didn’t realise was we were seeking ‘pleasure’, which is actually very different to happiness. So what’s the difference and how can we find true happiness?
When we start getting interested in how our body works from an energetic point of view we are constantly searching for tips to understand this new, incredibly interesting realm. One of the first things we discover is that our energy system runs through key points, called chakras, which are main energetic junctions connected to various physiological and neurological points in our body.
So what's been going on with #themindymovement? Can't believe it's been four weeks since our last vlog! Time flies when you're having fun. We've been on the move since we last spoke - we've moved from Coffs through to Kingscliff and had a lot of fun along the way.
It’s hard to remember life without Facebook, Insta, Twitter and other platforms of choice, in fact, our younger generations only know life with them. That busy, fragmented life online that consumes so many of our precious minutes in the day has now become the norm.
You gotta take those ups with the downs. We've been busy in and around Forster with an event, playing to the locals (and not of the two-legged kind), and getting through a few car troubles...but we've still got smiles on our faces.
So we did it! We've moved out of our house made of bricks and into our little pop-top van, Mindy. And we've just completed our first week in our cosy and small home on wheels without minimal problems. Yes, of course we've had a few minor hiccups, but that's what makes this adventure so fun, right!?
Today we share some exciting news. We’ve done it! We’ve made some huge, exciting and some may say scary decisions to put the wheels in motion (yes pun intended) for our next exciting chapter for Soulful Soundwaves.
It’s early in the morning and the day is announcing itself with a little breeze, an already bright sun and a deep blue sky. We had arrived in Mullumbimby and were pleasantly welcomed by the atmosphere of the place. You take a walk through this little town for some groceries and it takes you over an hour. Why?
Turning our little dream into reality was definitely not easy. It challenged us in more ways than we could possibly begin to explain. And it was definitely more times than twice when we asked ourselves “are we absolutely crazy?”
Solli Raphael, the youngest ever winner of the Australian Poetry Slam delivered a touching, deep and compelling message during an encore on the stage of the Sydney Opera House on the 15th of October 2017.
Have you experienced unpleasant, personal unjustified feedback? It hurts! But, why is that? If that person’s rant is so unjustified, so untrue, and therefore so meaningless, why do we feel like a knife just entered between our shoulder blades?
Jet lag. That nasty, annoying condition when your body just doesn’t know what time of day it is. You could fall asleep standing up at 11am and you could get stuck right into work when you should be going to bed at 11pm. Here's how binaural beats can help you align to the right time zone.
Music is such a powerful tool. Listening to music can help pick us up if we’re feeling low, help motivate us to run that little bit longer or help us focus to get through that late evening at work. With all the advancements in science and research, we now know a little more about what’s really going on inside our brain when we listen to music.
Join Soulful Soundwaves and Synergy Lab Sydney for a deeply relaxing and very unique meditative sound experience. Allow the powerful combination of live music and guided meditation to bring you to a calming and nurturing place of stillness.
Light as a feather, fast as the wind. Despite its size, the dragonfly has been held in high regard by many cultures throughout the centuries. Fascinating as they are, they have also inspired us and today we launch our next track - a humble homage to such a meaningful and beautiful creature.
Colour. We all think of colour differently. It’s a personal thing. We may have a favourite colour to wear and we may see colour and shades very differently. But what is most important is to keep the colour alive within ourselves. The fire. The love. The joy. That passion for life.
“You can only help others if you help yourself first.” I've heard this phrase so many times that when it comes up in a conversation it sounds like a refrain on an old record. Repetition doesn’t make it less true, but often when we hear it we’d like to ask that person “I know, I get it, but what does it mean practically? Can you tell me what I can do to help myself?”
Music is a non-verbal language used since the dawn of time, from when the first men used it to accompany ceremonies and rituals, or just as a way to express their feelings. Communicating and inspiring emotions is in fact the primary aim of any form of art, from painting to drama, from poetry to media arts, from dance to music.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we've been seeing all the usual love quotes, red hearts and advertisements for special gifts to give your partner. Is that what love is all about? Do you have to have a partner to experience love? Do you need to have a husband or a boyfriend to buy a valentines present for? In our view no, and here's why...
It seems I have a random attraction with the time 11:11. I am not a clock watcher by any stretch of the imagination, in fact I don’t even wear a watch. However, I go through periods when I constantly find myself checking the time at precisely 11:11.
On New Year’s Eve, many years ago, my family was gathered around the table having dinner to celebrate the advent of the new year. Two thirds of the family were there, my parents and my sister, my uncle and aunty with my cousins, my grandfather, and my granduncle and grandaunt. I was just a kid back then, and that to me was the definition of a proper party.
As a business creating binaural beat music, we understand the scientific jargon can often get in the way when trying to explain what binaural beats are and more importantly how they can help you in your day-to-day life. Read on to check out our video that helps explain it.
Free will represents the power to decide your own fate, to shape your own path in life, while destiny can be seen as a pre-determined way things are going to happen. “Do you believe in free will or fate?” is a question that has been posed to me a number of times.
I was a toddler the first time I heard this phrase and, at that time, I was way too young to understand the meaning of it. Many things our parents tell us are much wiser than they might seem. I remember I thought “Book?! Cover?! I’m playing Lego, what does it have to do with this?”
