The new music industry

Before the internet, the only ones who could make it as a professional musicians were the ones that got signed to labels and/or toured constantly.  The landscape was such that either you were a superstar and made millions or worked your ass off touring.

Those days are gone and thank god they are.  Currently I am doing an amazing training called the “Online Musician Course”.  The course is by Leah McHenry who….get this … is a stay at home mother of 5 children all under the age of 10. On top of that she homeschools them.  Despite this […]

the Power of Sound Healing

The Power of Sound Healing

Sound has been used for millennia for healing and to create a space of peace and well being. I say a “space” because it can transform the space between the ears to calm, it can also transform a space full of people to calm. It can also have the opposite effect. Even the staunchest sceptic has to admit that sound has an effect and that effect can be profoundly healing.

The Australian aboriginals use Sound for ceremony, healing, to tell stories and in their everyday lives. It is woven through everything. This could be said for many […]

Arthritis and acidic foods – an interesting conversation

Yesterday I was having a swim down at Clovelly beach in Sydney, near where I live. A gentleman in his 70s struck up a conversation with me.  He was a very friendly chap and after a few minutes of conversation he started telling me about his terrible arthritis.  I listened for a while and asked him if he took anything for his Arthritis.  He went on to list about 10 prescription medicines and supplements that he was taking. With a long face he told me that none of it worked.  “Have you tried OPC3” I asked? I know that […]

How I healed my lower back

Since 2010 I have had lower back pain on and off.  In 2010 it got quite bad and one day I couldn’t get up.  Thankfully it was only one day! I went to a Chiropractor and he took an XRAY and told me I would need 8 sessions with him.  I thought “I bet a Polarity Therapist can fix it in one session!” So I called my friends Chris McGrath and Robbie Hand organised a session.  After one session with Chris and Robbie my back was 100% better.

My back was good for a few years then in late 2013 […]

Keeping my music dream alive

About 18 months ago I was faced with a tough situation.  I was following my dreams with music, but as a husband and father, I was struggling to pay the bills.  In December 2013 it reached a critical point, I didn’t have money for food that week.  So I took my guitar to Bondi Junction mall and busked.  I made just enough to get the essentials, but I felt like crap.  I was busking under pressure to make money and that is not a good thing.  In fact most of the music work I was doing I was doing under […]

The difference between a chemtrail and a contrail

Now for something non-music related but important. I just happened to look up in the sky this morning and say the Chemtrail sprayer with a conventional aircraft not far behind showing the difference between a chemtrail and a contrail in the same photo. Interesting isn’t it?

The most successful people are the ones that have the most fun.

I had a major epiphany this week. It has been told to me many times, probably most notably by the book “the alchemist” that it is not the destination that is important it is the journey.

Many teachers tell us to set goals and that they must have deadlines. I now disagree, and am grateful again to Kevin Trudeau for teaching me this. I have realised that the people who achieved the greatest success in the world aren’t the ones that strive for deadlines, they are the ones who have the […]

Lessons from the Beatles and Bamboo trees.


Back in the 60s when the Beatles rose to fame it was one of the fastest rises to fame in history.  They went from virtually unknown one day to a household name the next.  Within weeks they were famous all around the world.  The Beatles were asked questions like “How does it feel to be an overnight success?” to which they replied words to the effect of “Are you kidding me? we played hundreds if not a thousand gigs over the last 3 years in pubs and clubs, sometimes almost empty […]

the 10 second miracle

“The 10 second miracle” as described by one of my greatest teachers Kevin Trudeau, is defined as “the moment when you take 100% responsibility for everything that happens in your life. I mean everything. All of the good stuff, all of the bad stuff, all of the stuff you want to blame on your parents or an ex lover. Everything, Everything, Everything. When you take 100% responsibility for everything that happens, you are 100% empowered.

I wrote a Song about this concept a while ago called “Break my Heart”:

It’s all the same.

There are so many healing modalities these days from the “conventional” methods of western medicine to accepted “alternative” methods such as massage to lesser known more “controversial” methods such as rebirthing, sound healing and the like.  I tend to like the more controversial methods because I believe that in general, the more controversial something is, the more effective it usually is.  But that is just me.

I read an amazing quote from Napoleon Hill in “the Law of Success in 16 Lessons” the other day that made me realise that whether a form […]

To find the love of your life, you just have to be ready.

On April 2nd, 2006 I was sitting in my flat in London, looking outside at the rain and feeling a bit lonely. I was single and yearning to meet the love of my life.

I took out my notebook and wrote at the top of a page “the woman I am attracting” I then proceeded to write down about 30 qualities that I wanted in a woman. (Just 30!). At the bottom I wrote “I am ready for this woman and she is ready for me and I will meet her in June 2006” I signed it.

In June […]
