When I was writing my new book, Spiritual Toolbox, I understood right away from my Guides that this book wasn’t particularly meant for reading—although there is much new information channeled from them within its pages; this book is much more about getting off our butts and doing. Which is why the meditations and exercises included in Spiritual Toolbox are on a special CD that comes with the book; and this brings me to what I want to talk about today—the composer of the music on that CD.
My go-to meditation CD for personal meditation time is Craig Howell’s magnificent Mayan Days of Sound. So when I was recording the Spiritual Toolbox CD, I wrote to Craig and asked him how much he would charge me to use the compositions on his CD as the background music on my CD. Craig would not take one single penny from me, and he put together a special opportunity for the folks who stopped by my booth at the Ozark Mountain Publishing 2013 Transformations Conference in July 2013: a chance to win a Sacred Name Song, which is a one-of-a-kind, custom meditation tool, composed/channeled by Craig. Here's Craig to explain exactly what Sacred Name Song is:
It’s a custom created meditation tool based on your name and soul energies. Your name is not an accident. Through spiritual intervention, you received just the right name to describe your soul's work in this world, your strengths and your weakness. It is your mantra in a way. When you speak it in a meditative state, or listen to the corresponding note patterns, you balance your soul energies and remind yourself why you are here. What I compose for each individual is a 10-15 minute personalized, custom meditation tool created just for that person and ONLY that person. Meditating with one’s Sacred Name Song assists in helping to balance our energy and links us back to our soul purpose. It’s especially effective after a long day at work (all you have to do is listen for benefit from the music), and it will release your creativity, stresses and limitations as it breaks up negative energies in your energy field, allowing you to raise your vibratory level.
I know that the person who won the Sacred Name Song at the Conference was thrilled with it, and Craig composed one for me, too. I have to share with you that when I listen to it during meditation, I melt away--I simply melt away from this incarnation and find myself on wonderful journeys; and sometimes I find myself chatting with relatives who are on the other side, and with my Guides, too. I realize that every Sacred Name Song Craig composes is different, but I must share with you that mine is like floating to the song of dolphins and whales as it grips my soul and takes me away from the stress and cares of this incarnation.
Generally speaking, I review books, not music, and I understand that I’m not reviewing a single piece of music here, I am more accurately and truly reviewing the composer--which may well be a little nervy on my part, but I can’t help myself, I have to share him with you. When I told Craig that I was going to write about the Sacred Name Song that he composed for me, being the generous Lightworker that he is, he put together two wonderful special offers for my fabulous Readers:
- Offer #1 = 1/3 off the usual price of $120, bringing the cost down to $75.
- Offer #2 = Buy One Get One: Find a friend who wants a Sacred Name Song too, order one for you and one for them, or use this offer to receive one for yourself and gift someone else (great idea for the holiday and birthday gifts!) for $120 ($60 each).
To take advantage of Craig’s offers, you must email him directly at email@example.com and mention my name—tell him that Sherri Cortland sent you.
I give Craig’s Sacred Name Song composition 5 Stars and I know from personal experience that it’s worth every penny at full price.
Oh, and here’s a link to some FREE downloads of Craig's music, including two as yet unreleased compositions:
