Love signal is a healing audio and visual meditation with music, sacred geometry and Solfeggio frequency 528 Hz, the miraculous frequency for transformation and DNA repair.
There is a special sound and color of love according to Dr. Horowitz, a Harvard-trained award-winning investigator. Broadcasting the right frequency can help open your heart, prompt peace, and hasten healing. “We now know the love signal, 528 Hertz, is among the six core creative frequencies of the universe because math doesn’t lie, the geometry of physical reality universally reflects this music; these findings have been independently derived, peer reviewed, and empirically validated,” Dr. Horowitz says.

For a deeper meditation experience; use stereo headphones to stimulate Theta brainwaves
Although this track is in the conventional scale, I have of-set the tuning up, so it will be harmonious with the C of 528 Hz. It also is rich, with the pure 528 Hz frequency; the love Hz.
Frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase “MI-ra gestorum” in Latin meaning “miracle.” Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based! MI – 528 Hz – relates to crown chakra. Dr Puleo suggests an association with DNA integrity.
The regular “C” that we all know of in this culture (which is from the diatonic scale of do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do) is not the 528 Hz frequency “C.
A regular “C” vibrates at a frequency of 523.3 Hz.
The “C” of 528 Hz used for DNA repair is part of an ancient scale called the Solfeggio Scale.

Have you ever wished that, instead of learning about history or the speed of light in school, we were also taught something more practical, like how to be happy? Well, your wish has come true. Recently, a new subject has appeared in education, not in high school but at universities. The course is called Positive Psychology, and its underlying promise is that we can learn to be happier, just as we can learn to ride a bike or to speak a foreign language.
Positive psychology may be the youngest branch in modern psychology, with less than 30 years of history, although its subject is one of the oldest and most fundamental human emotions – happiness. Positive Psychology is the scientific study and exploration of the human strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to develop and thrive. This new discipline of psychology is founded by those who want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives (instead of simply avoiding depression or anxiety), to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, joy, work, and play.
Dr. Maslow once said, “the science of psychology has been far more successful on the negative than on the positive side; it has revealed to us much about man’s shortcomings, his illness, his sins but little about his potentialities, his virtues, his achievable aspirations.” Traditional clinical psychology is based on the disease model, and the best outcome is from disease to neutral state (the zero) or no disease; neither depression nor anxiety. In contrast, positive psychology is based on the health model of human behavior by focusing on building up strengths or virtues, and pursuit of positive emotion, happiness and flourishing. Happiness isn’t the negation of unhappiness. The knowledge of positive psychology can help prevent disease or failure through cultivating positive characteristics and emotions. More importantly,
positive psychology focuses on what works in real life so as to catalyze a change in psychology from a preoccupation only with repairing the worst things in life to also building the best qualities in life.
Two years ago, I had the privilege to take the corresponding course “Foundation of Positive Psychology” through the University of Pennsylvania, taught by Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, whose teaching of Positive Psychology had made it the most popular course in Harvard University at the time (with 800+ students in one semester). You can find out more about Dr. Ben-Shahar from his web site (http://www.talbenshahar.com/).
At the end of this inspirational course, Dr. Ben-Shahar summarized the course with his top 10 tips to become happier. I would like to share these tips with some materials I learned from the course so that the readers may get a basic idea of how to apply these tips in their own pursuit of happiness:
1. The questions you ask will define the places to go to, and create your reality.
“What kind of reality do I want to create?” The questions will define or determine how you will think or behave next. If you ask “what’s wrong?” you would automatically look for wrong-doing or mistakes…. Instead, how about asking “What is most meaningful to me?” “What is most pleasant to me?” “What is my strength?” – find any overlap in answers to these queries will lead you to a more positive reality “What works best?” My favorite questions in a difficult or stressful situation: “What is one thing that is good about this?” or “What can I learn from this situation?”
2. Believe in yourself and others (think outside of the box).
Belief is a self-filling prophecy, and attitude is everything. Never underestimate the power of belief. People can go to wars and sacrifice themselves for a simple belief; therefore, starting with a positive belief and constructive attitude could make everything work differently. You cannot achieve or enjoy happiness with a negative attitude. If you want to be happy, choose to be happy, and believe in yourself that you can always be happier…
3. Learn to fail (or fail to learn!)
The foundation of success is failure, no shortcut! Failure is an important part of life or any successful progress, which offers unique and necessary lessons for moving closer to success. Do not be afraid of failure, and do not fail to learn from failures. It is true that failure does not feel as good as success, but we learn precious lessons from it. We may simply label ‘failure” as the successful identification of what does not work.
4. Give yourself permission to be human
It is the foundation of mental health – accept both painful and joyful experiences. Embrace your emotions, not just positive ones like joy or enthusiasm, but also emotions like anger, fear or sadness. Do not try to deny or run away from them. Expecting to be happy all the time is unrealistic and ultimately impossible – doing so will only lead to disappointment and greater unhappiness. Perfectionism does not bring happiness. Every human-being makes mistakes, and has negative motions; therefore, allowing yourself to be human implies living in reality while finding the beautiful self through both pains and joys.
5. Open up (journal and/or in person)
Expressing yourself (writing, talking to friends or therapist) will assist in feeling emotions – live a life with integrity by being real and truthful to your own values and feelings. Talking about traumatic or negative experiences offers an opportunity to heal by allowing the mind to put it in context, reframe and find benefits… Do not suppress or hide your feelings; do not close your mind and emotions. Talking to your friends or therapist if you have problem, or just writing down how you feel will channel out the feeling…
6. Being a benefit finder (express gratitude, and appreciate what we already have)
Find out what works best in all situations, including the worst situation, and actively (purposefully) find the benefits in every situation and event. Create rituals and keep a gratitude journal. Happiness rarely visits those who frequently complain and are too cynical. Yes, nobody is perfect and everything has two sides, by being a benefit finder you would live a much happier and more peaceful life. Remember that there is always someone living a worse life than you… The happiest people don’t have the best of everything; they just make the best out of everything.
7. Simplify your life (do less instead of more, time affluence)
Modern society promotes the notion more is better, or faster is better, which does not really bring happiness. Technology brings us more convenience or efficiency, but less time to enjoy life. Next time when you make a choice on anything from purchasing a cell phone to accepting an invitation to an event, simpler is probably better for your well-being and happiness. Do not live with an overwhelming sense that you are running out of time, doing so makes it impossible to enjoy or dedicate yourself fully to any activities that make you happy.
8. Cultivate relationships
A close intimate relationship is the number one predictor of our well-being; therefore, spending quality time with the important person in your life will make a big difference in your general satisfaction in life, and the feeling of happiness. Cultivating relationships also means investing time and energy for closer and positively-oriented relationships, and let go of the relationship that brings nothing but negativity to your life.
9. Remember the mind-body connection
A healthy mind is based on a healthy body, it can be more difficult to feel happy when you are physically sick, or feel sleepy and stressed. So if you want to keep your mind positive and your spirit up, start with getting an adequate amount of sleep, pay attention to your diet and get regular exercises. The common formula for a happy life includes active exercise, breathing & mindfulness practice (e.g. meditation), good sleep, and human touch (for example, hugs) – these are the key to the mind-body connection.
10. Differentiate yourself (be known)
Open up to knowing and being known, being real and truthful— really know who you are and what your life means. Live the life that matches your values. One good exercise is to write down what you like about yourself, what you value most, and what you are good at, so as to build up a positive and realistic self-esteem.
Most importantly (which becomes tip #11), introduce behavioral change NOW (today) to lead yourself for a happier life — to become a practical idealist and make a difference in your own life. “Be the change you want to see.” Happiness is not a goal in life, but a continuous process starting now. We can always expect to be happier… One of the most recommended actions by Dr. Ben-Shahar, as well as by Dr. Andrew Weil (in his new bookSpontaneous Happiness), is to start writing appreciation journal, or recall three things you enjoyed and appreciated every day before going to bed. By simply asking yourself everyday: “What am I grateful for right now?” “What do I appreciate in my life?” and allowing yourself to really feel that gratitude, you will become at least 25% happier.
For more information about positive psychology, I highly recommend the web site from University of Pennsylvania — “Authentic Happpiness” (http://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/Default.aspx)…
May this short introduction help you find your way to becoming happier!

“It is astonishing how little one feels alone when one loves.” ~John Bulwer
1. INITIATE MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS.
The first step to feeling more loved is creating close relationships, and that starts with meaningful, engaged conversations. These don’t necessarily need to be deep and spiritual in nature. They just need to be honest, authentic, and reciprocal.
You can initiate this type of exchange with anyone at almost any time simply by asking about the other person, fully listening to what they have to say, and then finding common ground. Naturally some people will stay shut down, but it’s worth the risk of feeling vulnerable to find the ones who won’t.
2. GIVE THE GIFT OF YOUR PRESENCE.
Often when we converse with people, we’re not fully listening; we’re formulating our response in our heads and waiting for our turn to talk. We’re not only doing the other person a disservice when we do this; we’re also shortchanging ourselves.
Think about the last time you really opened up to someone. It likely required you to feel a level of comfort and trust, even if you didn’t yet know that person very well. The act of opening up is itself an offering of love. It’s an invitation to let someone in.
In recognizing this and welcoming it by fully hearing other people, we are, in fact, receiving love.
3. OPEN UP YOUR LOVE VALVE.
Just like a heart valve prevents blood from flowing backwards, our love valve might block the flow of energy in our interactions. This generally happens when we get too caught up in our head, thinking, analyzing, and wanting more, instead of being present and allowing a natural give and take.
Come into the moment, take the pressure off the situation, and avoid the urge to fill silences with chatter. Instead, picture the interaction as something cyclical in nature, where there’s a balance of sharing and listening, giving and receiving.
When we clear the mental clutter and allow this type of flow, we are in essence choosing to be love.
OPEN YOUR MIND
4. CHANGE YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT THE WORLD AND LOVE.
When we tell ourselves the same things over and over again, we end up creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.
If you tell yourself that people don’t care, you’ll put that energy into the world and then easily find evidence to back it up. If you tell yourself you’ll never experience love, you’ll create mental barriers and then subconsciously repel it.
Tell yourself a different story: There’s a lot of love in the world, there’s plenty to go around, you deserve it, and it’s coming to you every day.
5. CONSIDER THAT LOVE MIGHT LOOK DIFFERENT THAN YOU VISUALIZED IT.
In telling yourself that love is coming to you every day, you’re not merely lying to yourself; you’re taking responsibility for recognizing the love around you.
It might not be from the person you want to be with romantically. It might not meet the standards and criteria you defined in your head. That doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
When a friend pushes you to reach your potential, it’s an act of love. When a family member takes the time to listen to you, helping you form insights about your life, it’s an act of love.
See and appreciate the love all around you and it will surely multiply because you’ll come to potential new relationships with a sense of wholeness instead of lack.
6. GIVE LOVE WHEN YOU’RE TEMPTED TO JUDGE.
Ultimately, this is how we all want to be loved: without judgment, pity, or condescension. Commit to giving this kind of love, both in your existing relationships and in new ones you might be tempted to avoid.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t follow your instincts when you feel like unsafe around someone. It just means you look below the surface, give people a chance, and in doing so create the potential for more meaningful, mutually supportive relationships.
Make the conscious choice to be understanding and compassionate. While getting isn’t the intention of giving, this will likely set the stage for you to receive the same consideration in return.
OPEN YOUR EYES
7. VALUE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THERE.
Sometimes we get so caught up looking for romantic love that we forget to appreciate the friends and family who are always there, offering their support. At least I did. Despite my chronic fear of being seen and judged, and my instinct to self-sabotage, I spent a long time believing that I was incomplete.
I know you might be thinking that friendships aren’t the same as romantic affection, and I understand. I felt this way too. But we don’t attract romantic love into our lives by focusing on what’s missing. We attract potential partners by radiating love.
Take an inventory of all the people who care. There are likely far more than you realize.
8. RECOGNIZE THE LOVE YOU’RE NOT GIVING.
It’s far easier to pinpoint what we’re not getting than it is to be honest with ourselves about what we’re not giving. Perhaps you want people to check in with your more frequently. Are you checking in with them? Maybe you want people to ask more about your personal life. Are you asking them about theirs?
Give the type of love you want to receive. Give praise. Notice the little things. Offer help without it being asked of you.
I’m not suggesting you should always be the one giving. If it feels like a constant one-way street, then it might be time to reevaluate that relationship. But in most healthy ones, giving more freely creates an environment of consideration and generosity.
And then of course there’s the other side of this coin: Ask for what you need! There’s one relationship in my life that’s often felt unbalanced. Recently I asked this friend if she’d call me sometimes just to talk, as opposed to calling for advice. I asked, and now she does.
9. LOOK DEEPLY AT YOUR NEEDS AND INTENTIONS.
Sometimes when we go out looking for love, we’re really trying to avoid giving ourselves what we need. There’s pain in our past we don’t want to acknowledge; or there’s an emptiness inside that we don’t want to fill on our own.
If you’re feeling a hole somewhere inside, take a close look at what might have caused it. Be strong enough to acknowledge what you need to do for you, whether it’s having a long overdue conversation with a family member, working on your self-esteem, or finding a sense of purpose in life.
We all deserve to feel loved by the people in our lives, but first need to be willing and able to love ourselves. That’s what it takes to feel deeply connected: to feel deeply connected to ourselves and confident in what we can give.
Fear paralyses our willpower. Learn to overcome it!
What is fear? Why does it overwhelm us at every stage of life?
Fear is the opposite of love. The Bible says, “Love casts away fear”. We might think that courage is the opposite of fear, but often, we can act with courage and still be fearful. When you fear something, you consider it unwelcome, challenging and a threat to your wellbeing. When you love something, you have exactly the opposite feelings. If you love doing something, it doesn’t mean that it does not require effort, talent, challenge and determination from you.
Take climbing Mt Everest. It would be fearsome for most people, but for those who take it on, somehow the love of adventure, the love of pushing themselves to the limit, and the love of triumph enables them to conquer the fear that ordinary people would have. So, fear is an emotion or response to a life situation which takes away our confidence, paralyses our willpower, and makes us feel that going forward is impossible.
The biggest fear a student has is not doing well in exams. It causes great anguish.The Board exams in the country have just begun; what’s your advice to students on fighting fear of failure?
We have set up an educational system that terrifies children, and nobody can learn in an atmosphere of fear. We have instilled in children the idea that learning is meaningless and that what is important is the result. We need a revolution to set things right.
We need to expose children to examples of real men and women from history who have faced serious challenges and overcome them — stories of inventors and scientists like Thomas Edison, Helen Keller and Marie Curie.
History is filled with examples of those who persevered against all odds and succeeded — so that children understand, from a young age that life is challenging, but that challenge is satisfying and can be met with human potential of intelligence, creativity and perseverance. But the present education system does not allow for failure; failure is considered a disaster. Children need to learn from real-life examples that failure is just an interesting step along the way to success.
The career woman, forever struggling to strike a work-life balance, fears being left behind in the professional rat race. How can she overcome this fear?
Every one of us has competing commitments. The challenge is to look at every situation and ask: what is my higher Self asking me to do? The only way to peace is to have a clear conscience and the only way to have a clear conscience is to behave righteously irrespective of what society expects or what the financial implications are.
Where there is dharma, there is always victory; right action brings positive result. But if you compromise for short-term gains, you will always be insecure; you will always be uncomfortable with your conscience, and you will set off a dissonance. Sooner or later, this dissonance will come back and upset the equilibrium of your life.
A homemaker is often plagued by relationship fears: her husband may get attracted to someone else and leave her; her children may go their own way. How can she fight such insecurity?
We must recognize that it is not circumstances that give us our security, for circumstances are forever changing. Even the most righteous of husbands can be tempted; even the most secure of economic situations can change, the most promising of children can be deflected from their goal for any number of reasons. Our security must come from our own sense of confidence to respond energetically and creatively to whatever challenges that come our way.
The problem is that a homemaker often allows her life to be defined by conditions around her. She lives through her husband, her children and the home she has, and begins to lose a sense of her own creative and intellectual potential. It is important not to allow her life to be pulled down too far into the mundane. It is great to be a selfless righteous woman, happy to facilitate the lives of her husband and children, but she must do it with creativity and intellectual awareness, without compromising on her sense of self-worth.
The biggest fear the elderly face is of dependence in old age. Is there a way out of this fear?
Old age is inevitable and with it comes some amount of physical dependence. If you are going to fear what is inevitable, there is no end to it. The only way to assuage this fear is to put our trust in God. That would be my answer to every kind of fear, but it becomes much more poignant in old age.
But there’s another side to it. If we ourselves have been generous-hearted and have enjoyed being so, why should we imagine that if other people have to be generous to us, it would be a burden on them? If we are genuinely generous that sets in motion magnetism in our life. Then, even if we become dependent, it won’t be in a fearful relationship of taking, but in a happy relationship of sharing.
Written by Nayaswami Asha
the universe is able and prepared
to bring you comfort and repair.
You are loved and your purpose is to love.
From a mind filled with infinite love
comes the power to create infinite possibilities.
We have power to think in ways
that reflect and attract
all the love in the world.
Such thinking is called enlightenment.
Enlightenment is not a process we work toward,
but a choice available to us in any instant.

All things, all reality, all experiences exist within the mind or consciousness of ‘The One’; (God, Jehovah, Elohim, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma etc.). It is illusional to think that your experiences are outside of ‘The One’ consciousness, which is Love. We have been deceived into believing that we are ‘Separate’ from ‘The One’; that there is an ‘Out there’, an ‘Outside’ of the consciousness, the Love of ‘All that IS’, ‘The One’; (God, Jehovah, Elohim, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma etc. This ‘thought’ when believed is the illusion, it deceives you into thinking of yourself as a ‘Victim’! Love thy neighbor as thyself – (Because they are ‘thyself’) – Matt.19:19. Take heed that you be not deceived – Luke 21:8. Which deceiveth the whole world – Rev.12:9. Deception originates by thought but seats itself within the consciousness. You must try to remember that your experience is by your created choice. We exist within an attraction-based construct, all created for our experience to learn – “Who I Am?”; Know ThySelf! Our emotions (energy in motion) are electrical! Our thoughts are magnetic! What you think about, you bring about! As one thinketh in the heart, so are they– Prov.23:7 There is no ‘Out there’, out there! There are no ‘Victims’! There is truly nothing “Outside” of your ‘Consciousness’! It is all like unto a dream. No-Thing can ‘Separate’ you from Love because that is ‘All that IS’!
When you creatively choose to accept that you are One with ‘All that Is’ then something very interesting will begin to happen. Something quite wonderful and magnificent will begin to manifest in your reality (Life). Every moment of every hour of every day that you contemplate this thought, you will inevitably begin to realize & believe that your very ‘Being’ exists within the mind or consciousness of ‘The One’; (God, Jehovah, Elohim, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, etc.). Because that is ‘All that IS’! And the degree to which you come to know this thought to be true, that you are really and truly One with ‘All that Is’, will be the degree to which you will no longer experience evil, which is, lack of choice. Evil does not exist within the consciousness of ‘The One’ which is Love! You can only experience evil through an illusion; by believing that you reside in a conscious state of separation or duality! Once you finally remember and accept your intrinsic Oneness to ‘All that IS’, then you cannot experience evil being done to you unless you creatively choose/allow that experience within your reality construct; nor can you contemplate doing it to another. It is only while believing in the conscious state of separation or duality that you can either experience the actions of another being as evil or indeed contemplate enacting evil upon another being.
This is only my perspective. I am sure you have your own.
By Dr. Ali
More Awakening Signs include:
-A feeling that something has changed within you
You simply feel different, you may not look any different but you know something has changed internally. Your old ways are falling by the wayside and the real you is starting to emerge.
-An increase in occurrences of coincidence
Better known as synchronicity, favourable people and beneficial circumstance start to appear with exactly what you need. Answers to questions are revealed to you through signs and messages. Synchronicity is a sign you are on the right track and that you are aware of these miracles happening around you. The more you notice and take heed, the more they appear so show appreciation for the guidance you are receiving.
Spiritual awakening raises your vibration; this involves a release of blockages which allows abundance to flow to you. Being in alignment with a higher vibration results in quicker and more beneficial manifestations to be received by you. Be aware of your thoughts so you get what you really want or better.
-Paying more attention to the details of daily life
-A desire to enroll in a classroom of “higher” learning
-Seeking new friends and groups who are interested in the Integrated life of the spirit (meaning balance in mind-body-spirit)
-Going to new places and moving outside of your comfort zone
For many of you, this is allowing yourself to ask questions in groups, to talk to “strangers” and to let go of your fears of looking uninformed in front of others.
-Sense of your own power to create with thought, words, and actions
-A feeling that you are somehow different, with new skills and gifts emerging, especially healing ones.
You realize that it is time for you to seek and speak your truth.
-A knowing sense of connectedness / Oneness
You have an abiding knowing from within of the intrinsic inter-relatedness of everything, both living and non-living. You have a sense that now your life is a living manifestation of this Truth, and that you are It — as are all people
