This 2-CD set is designed to help you be more relaxed during your commute to and from work and be more productive while you are in your work environment. Consistent use will help you to concentrate more deeply, without tension or strain. You’ll be more able to stay calm and centered in challenging situations, which will allow you to make better decisions, maintain healthy and harmonious relationships, and be more solution-oriented.
Several tools will help you achieve these results. First: beautiful, uplifting music. Listening to it will result in a positive and expansive state of being: an antidote to stress and a major boost to success. Next: affirmations—powerful tools that can affect not only the conscious mind, but also the subconscious, dislodging stubborn and unhelpful mental habits. True affirmation is not “wishful thinking”: it is aligning yourself with a higher truth. Finally, you will also experience several relaxation techniques and guided visualizations. To get the most out of affirmations, repeat them with deep concentration. Focus at the point between the eyebrows, the seat of higher awareness in the body.
On Disc 1 you will be guided in repeating each affirmation loudly, to command the full attention of your conscious mind. You’ll then repeat it more quietly, absorbing more deeply the meaning of the words. Speaking it next in a whisper will carry the meaning into your subconscious. To finish, you’ll repeat it mentally, to deepen your absorption and make it fully your own. After you’ve finished repeating the guided affirmation, listen to the music, holding onto the peaceful state the music and affirmation have generated.
Disc 2 contains all the music from Disc 1, but without the guided affirmations and practices.

How to Use this CD
This CD is designed for use throughout your workday, to help you remain calm and centered in moments of stress, and to access joyful enthusiasm when you’re feeling low.
Driving to Work
Stay relaxed and alert as you commute to work in the morning. Traffic and other factors can be overwhelming, but if you arrive at your workplace agitated, your ability to focus will be impaired. Equally important, starting the day with stress lowers your energy, making it harder to get things done or experience satisfaction in your activity. Uplifting music will help you feel awake and energized, but from a peaceful center.
Challenges and crises occur, but one can stay calm and even-minded in the midst of it all. Here’s a simple technique that works. When you’ve lost your inner peace, just breathe! When your body is relaxed, you naturally breathe deeply, and the reverse is also true: when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down, and that message is passed on to your body. First, use the breathing exercise on Track 7. At that point you can select one of the listed issues and follow the instructions. You may want to use headphones to block out distracting sounds.
Driving Home from Work
Detach your mind from the problems and projects you’ve been dealing with. Otherwise, you’re likely to burden yourself and your loved ones with work-related issues once you get home. Let go and release the day, which will allow you to be present and relaxed, able to enjoy quality time with the people you care about the most. This section is designed to help you detach yourself from your workday. The goal is to decrease your mental activity by removing your attention from the details of your daily routine and shifting your awareness, so you can see and appreciate the “bigger picture.”
The quality of your sleep is a key factor in how well you cope, physically and mentally, with stress. To easily fall asleep and remain deeply asleep throughout the night is of vital importance in getting the deep, restorative rest the body needs in order to combat stress and wake up rejuvenated and ready to take on a new day. A common cause of insomnia is the many thoughts that cause tension in the body. This section is designed to free your mind of worries and concerns so your body can relax, allowing you to regain your inner peace. Before you begin, make sure you’re ready for bed, so you can go straight from your relaxation session to sleep. You may want to use headphones in order to block out distracting sounds.
