Today, MCs, break dancers, beat makers, and DJ experts participating in the Next Level program had an impromptu freestyle jam session in the State Department lobby!

24 American artist-educators and representatives from the Beat Making Lab came to Washington, DC for an orientation before they set off to Bangladesh, India, Zimbabwe, Senegal, Bosnia, and Serbia where they will implement workshops for a broad range of overseas artists and students, incorporating techniques for raising awareness of conflict resolution strategies through music and dance, as well as digital music making skills.

After the educational/training component of their program, the American artists will leave digital and sound equipment in each country, in order for local artists to continue making music. We can't wait to hear their amazing collaborations from the road!

Find What WORKS to get unstuck?

❤️Keep returning to center through whatever works for you..

-Meditation, Prayer, Healthy Food, Yoga, Exercise, Time in Nature, Sit in the Grass bathe in the Sun or the Moon, Calling a friend for support, etc.

❤️Know your Old Patterns are showing up with great ferocity right now BECAUSE you are clearly stating what you Want and so you first must FEEL the blocks of what you don't Want and then release them.

❤️Find a million and one ways of self care and to support yourself in honoring your Own Path, your Own Intuition, your Own Internal Guidance System and use those tools.

For me, I have begun tracking, every morning, what I did the day before that helps me move toward change and transformation and my heart's desires. I journal what my emotions are telling me which helps me track the origin of the feelings. Then I create lists of positive aspects for every area of my present life.

❤️Ask your Angels and Guides for help, for what you want, and FEEL what it's like to receive that help and the clearing needed to get there with ease and grace. They are eager to help and very much invested in you. You are never alone.

DRAWN TO OTHERS

I find myself drawn to certain people. It is more than just an interest in someone; my energy is attracted to that person. It is important to pay attention to these kinds of relationships. Being drawn to people is our inner guidance system or, in other words, our intuition. These people who interest us must have special messages for us. There are definitely reasons why that person has come into our lives—possibly to help us play out our destiny.

Implementation: Today take a closer look at someone your energy is drawn to. Does that person have a message for you or a reason for coming into your life?

Healing The Red Root Chakra

The ascension energies over the last year have been very intense and overwhelming. Before entering the year of the Horse, it was The Snake. During the time of Snake energy, we have been shedding our old skin, letting go of our old selves and exposing the new us. This journey has been very difficult and overwhelming, and has caused major imbalances in our lower Chakras.

Our Root Chakra is the most important Chakra in our body. It is the first Chakra to develop that helps to ground us into the physical. If our most basic needs of food, shelter and nurturing are not met, this Chakra never develops properly. We never feel loved, nurtured or safe. We never trust that our needs will be met. We live our life as the Victim, feeling helpless to create anything different.

When our Root Chakra is out of balance, we are not grounded, we have no stability. We may feel dizzy or tend to stumble and trip. We don’t feel safe. We have problems finding a job, keeping a job or attracting money. We don’t have a good relationship with our Mother or with Mother Earth. We feel that the world is out to get us and there is nothing we can do to change it.

Too many people today prefer to only focus on their Third Eye Chakra, and pay no attention at all to the lower Chakras. They want to ‘see’ and receive messages from the spirit realm. They want to float around in the etheric realm and enjoy that sensation. Because their Root Chakras are unbalanced, they have no connection to what is real, so they ‘channel’ their higher selves or dark entities thinking they are ‘channeling’ Angels or Ascended Masters. This has resulted in most of the current information available being tainted and full of misinformation.

When we have a healthy Root Chakra, we have a strong connection to Mother Earth. We ‘Mother’ ourselves, meeting all of our own needs. We generate whatever we need in our life when we need it. We have a job that we love, money and are stable. We are more psychic and receive very accurate information and guidance from the Spirit realm.

When we have a healthy Root Chakra, all of the other Chakras in our body to come into harmony with it, and we are able to release issues easier.

Where in your life are you being a Victim? You may be a victim to the housing market, or high unemployment, or a controlling Mother or the ascension energies. Be willing to face these issues openly and willingly so that you can release the energies and heal your Root.

From The Secret Daily Teachings

Giving opens up the door to receiving. You have so many opportunities to give every day.

Give kind words. Give a smile. Give appreciation and love. Give compliments.

You can give courtesy to other motorists while you are driving.

You can give a smile to the car parking attendant.

You can give a warm greeting to the newspaper stand person or the person who makes your coffee.

You can give by allowing a stranger to go ahead of you into an elevator, and you can give by asking which floor they are going to and pressing the button for them.

If someone drops something you can give a helping hand and pick it up for them.

You can give warm embraces to those you love.

And you can give appreciation and encouragement to everyone.

There are so many opportunities for you to give and thereby open the door to receiving.

May the joy be with you,

EVERYTHING

“Everything you take for granted is a blessing. Everything you fear is a friend in disguise. Everything you want is a part of you. Everything you hate you hate about yourself. Everything you own does not define you. Everything you feel is the only Truth there is to know.

Everything you wish for is already on its way to you. Everything you think creates your life. Everything you seek for you will find. Everything you resist will stick around.

Everything you let go of stays if it’s supposed to. Everything you need is right where you are.

Every time you bless another you bless yourself. Every time you blame another you lose your power. Every time you think you can, you can. Every time you fall you must get up and try again. Every time you cry you’re one tear closer to joy. Every time you ask for forgiveness, all you have to do is forgive yourself.

Everyone you see is your reflection. Everyone you know mirrors you. Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to live in joy. Everyone seeks a higher purpose. Everyone breathes the same breath. Everyone needs love to survive. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill.

Everyone’s the same as everyone else. We just get caught up in labels, names, skin color and religion. Everyone’s the same as everyone else. No one wants to feel the pain. Everyone’s the same as everyone else. Everyone is dying for love to remain.”

“Humility is recognition of truth. Your worldly accomplishments are a gift bestowed upon you by the Uni-verse, nothing is possible without the support of the invisible realm of the Infinite Mystery. When you know that you actually do nothing and are simply a channel for the Good, Abundance, Joy and Peace that already existed before your birth to be rearranged to your preference you will be in harmony with Life. The minute you buy into being the doer of anything you have taken yourself out of the flow and stepped back into Ego thinking.

All things have been created by the Joyful will of the Infinite Mystery, Life is an experience of making choices about how you want to arrange things in your life. You can choose to arrange things in a Fearful, Egoic way, or you can choose to arrange things in a Loving and Joyful way. When you choose Love and Joy you align with the greatest and highest Good and begin to express your unique creative perspective while at the same time feeling a oneness with everyone else. This will leave you with a feeling of wholeness, joy, peace and gratitude.”

12 Steps to Eliminate Your Clutter—Inside and Out
by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Clean out your clutter; in your mind, your garage, your email... and let your true spirit come out and play.

For a moment, let's imagine what it would be like to be fully alive without a physical shell or any of the stuff we need and desire for maintaining life on Earth. We'd have a mental energy that allowed us to move forward or backward, up or down, instantly creating whatever we desired. We'd be free to wallow in an exquisite existence without time or space as we know it. We'd be in a state of pure bliss, in love with everything and everyone. We'd have no duties or bills to tend to, no fear of losing anything, no one judging us, no possessions to insure, no demands on our time, and no goals to achieve.

What we're envisioning is actually the world of Spirit, which we experienced before we came here and will return to when we shed our body (or as William Butler Yeats poetically called it, our "tattered coat upon a stick").

Inspiration is a state of being here now in this material world, while at the same time reconnecting to our spiritual origins. In order to be receptive to inspiration, we need to eliminate the ego clutter that accumulates all too easily for most of us—after all, if we're preoccupied with events and activities that have nothing to do with inspiration, we're unlikely to notice its summons. So in order to achieve a reunion with our ultimate calling, we need to emulate the clear, uncomplicated world of Spirit.

This doesn't mean that we should sit around doing nothing, awaiting Spirit's arrival; instead, it means having faith that our spiritual connection flourishes in a life dedicated to joy, love, and peace. If our daily activities are so overwhelming that we don't make these things our priority, then we're disregarding the value of living a simple life.

MY 12-Step Program for Simplifying Your Life

Here are 12 very specific tools for simplifying your life. Begin using them today if you're serious about hearing that ultimate call to inspiration.

Unclutter Your Life.
You'll feel a real rush of inspiration when you clear out stuff that's no longer useful in your life:

If you haven't worn it in the past year or two, recycle it for others to use. Get rid of old files that take up space and are seldom, if ever, needed. Donate unused toys, tools, books, bicycles, and dishes to a charitable organization.

Get rid of anything that keeps you mired in acquisitions that contribute to a cluttered life. In the words of Socrates, "He is nearest to God who needs the fewest things." So the less you need to insure, protect, dust, reorganize, and move, the closer you'll be to hearing inspiration's call.

Clear your Calendar of Unwanted and Unnecessary Activities and Obligations.
If you're unavailable for Spirit, you're unlikely to know the glow of inspiration. God will indeed work with you and send you the guidance—and the people—you need, but if you're grossly overscheduled, you're going to miss these life-altering gifts. So practice saying no to excessive demands and don't feel guilty about injecting a dose of leisure time into your daily routine.

Be Sure to Keep Your Free Time Free.
Be on the lookout for invitations to functions that may keep you on top of society's pyramid, but which inhibit your access to joyful inspiration. If cocktail parties, social get-togethers, fund-raising events, or even drinking-and-gossiping gatherings with friends aren't really how you want to spend your free time, then don't. Begin declining invitations that don't activate feelings of inspiration. I find that an evening spent reading or writing letters, watching a movie with a loved one, having dinner with my children, or even exercising alone is far more inspiring than getting dressed to attend a function often filled with small talk. I've learned to be unavailable for such events without apologizing, and consequently have more inspired moments freed up.

Take Time for Meditation and Yoga.
Give yourself at least 20 minutes a day to sit quietly and make conscious contact with God. I've written an entire book on this subject called Getting in the Gap, so I won't belabor it here. I will say that I've received thousands of messages from people all over the world, who have expressed their appreciation for learning how to simplify their life by taking the time to meditate. I also encourage you to find a yoga center near you and begin a regular practice. The rewards are so powerful: You'll feel healthier, less stressed, and inspired by what you'll be able to do with and for your body in a very short time.

Return to the Simplicity of Nature.
There's nothing more awe-inspiring than nature itself. The fantasy to return to a less tumultuous life almost always involves living in the splendor of the mountains, the forests, or the tundra; on an island; near the ocean; or beside a lake. These are universal urges, since nature is created by the same Source as we are, and we're made up of the same chemicals as all of nature (we're stardust, remember?).

Your urge to simplify and feel inspired is fueled by the desire to be your natural self—that is, your nature self. So give yourself permission to get away to trek or camp in the woods; swim in a river, lake, or ocean; sit by an open fire; ride horseback through trails; or ski down a mountain slope. This doesn't have to mean long, planned vacations that are months away—no matter where you live, you're only a few hours or even moments away from a park, campground, or trail that will allow you to enjoy a feeling of being connected to the entire Universe.

Put Distance between You and Your Critics.
Choose to align yourself with people who are like-minded in their search for simplified inspiration. Give those who find fault or who are confrontational a silent blessing and remove yourself from their energy as quickly as possible. Your life is simplified enormously when you don't have to defend yourself to anyone, and when you receive support rather than criticism. You don't have to endure the criticism with anything other than a polite thank-you and a promise to consider what's been said—anything else is a state of conflict that erases the possibility of your feeling inspired. You never need to defend yourself or your desires to anyone, as those inner feelings are Spirit speaking to you. Those thoughts are sacred, so don't ever let anyone trample on them.

Take Some Time for Your Health.
Consider that the number one health problem in America seems to be obesity. How can you feel inspired and live in simplicity if you're gorging on excessive amounts of food and eliminating the exercise that the body craves? Recall that your body is a sacred temple where you reside for this lifetime, so make some time every single day for exercising it. Even if you can only manage a walk around the block, just do it. Similarly, keep the words portion control uppermost in your consciousness—your stomach is the size of your fist, not a wheelbarrow! Respect your sacred temple and simplify your life by being an exerciser and a sensible eater. I promise that you'll feel inspired if you act on this today!

Play, Play, Play!
You'll simplify your life and feel inspired if you learn to play rather than work your way through life. I love to be around kids because they inspire me with their laughter and frivolity. In fact, if I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times: "Wayne, you've never grown up—you're always playing." I take great pride in this! I play onstage when I speak, and I'm playing now as I write.

Many years ago I was given a tremendous opportunity to appear on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The man who took a chance on me, booking me even though I was an unknown at the time, was a talent coordinator named Howard Papush. It was my first big break, and I went on to appear on The Tonight Show 36 additional times. Now it's my turn to say thank you to Howard. He's written a wonderful book titled When's Recess? Playing Your Way Through the Stresses of Life, which I encourage you to read. (Howard also conducts workshops that teach people how to play and have fun in life.) In the book, Howard shares this great quote from Richard Bach: "You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self." I couldn't agree more—by all means, get back in touch with your real, playful self, and take every opportunity to play! Notice how it makes everything so sweet, and so simple.

Slow Down.
One of Gandhi's most illuminating observations reminds us that "there is more to life than increasing its speed." This is great advice for simplifying your life—in fact, slow everything way down for a few moments right here and now. Slowly read these words. Slow your breathing down so that you're aware of each inhalation and exhalation...

When you're in your car, downshift and relax. Slow down your speech, your inner thoughts, and the frantic pace of everything you do. Take more time to hear others. Notice your inclination to interrupt and get the conversation over with, and then choose to listen instead. Stop to enjoy the stars on a clear night and the cloud formations on a crisp day. Sit down in a mall and just observe how everyone seems in a hurry to get nowhere.

By slowing down, you'll simplify and rejoin the perfect pace at which creation works. Imagine trying to hurry nature up by tugging at an emerging tomato plant—you're as natural as that plant, so let yourself be at peace with the perfection of nature's plan.

Do Everything You Can to Eschew Debt.
Remember that you're attempting to simplify your life here, so you don't need to purchase more of what will complicate and clutter your life. If you can't afford it, let it go until you can. By going into debt, you'll just add layers of anxiety onto your life. That anxiety will then take you away from your peace, which is where you are when you're in-Spirit. When you have to work extra hard to pay off debts, the present moments of your life are less enjoyable; consequently, you're further away from the joy and peace that are the trademarks of inspiration. You're far better off to have less and enjoy the days of your life than to take on debt and invite stress and anxiety where peace and tranquility could have reigned. And remember that the money you have in your possession is nothing but energy—so refuse to plug in to an energy system that's not even there.

Forget about the Cash Value.
I try not to think about money too frequently because it's been my observation that people who do so tend to think about almost nothing else. So do what your heart tells you will bring you joy, rather than determining whether it will be cost-effective. If you'd really enjoy that whale-watching trip, for instance, make the decision to do so—don't deny yourself the pleasures of life because of some monetary detail. Don't base your purchases on getting a discount, and don't rob yourself of a simple joy because you didn't get a break on the price. You can afford a happy, fulfilling life, and if you're busy right now thinking that I have some nerve telling you this because of your bleak financial picture, then you have your own barrier of resistance.

Make an attempt to free yourself from placing a price tag on everything you have and do—after all, in the world of Spirit, there are no price tags. Don't make money the guiding principle for what you have or do; rather, simplify your life and return to Spirit by finding the inherent value in everything. A dollar does not determine worth, even though you live in a world that attempts to convince you otherwise.

Remember Your Spirit.
When life tends to get overly complex, too fast, too cluttered, too deadline oriented, or too type A for you, stop and remember your own spirit. You're headed for inspiration, a simple, peaceful place where you're in harmony with the perfect timing of all creation. Go there in your mind, and stop frequently to remember what you really want.

A man who personified success at the highest intellectual and social levels would hardly seem one to quote on simplifying our life, yet here's what Albert Einstein offers us on this subject: "Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury—to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind."

Wow! I'd say this is pretty good advice, wouldn't you?

MANIFESTING
If you have an intention or desire and you want to see it manifest this is the process:

1. Know What You Want as much detail as possible.

2. Plant a Seed in your imagination for your desire and plant this seed in the Higher Realms of Your Highest Good.

3. Nurture your desire with daily meditation visualizations and really getting into the feeling place of having what you want as if you already have it. Stay in this happy joyous feeling state as much as possible throughout your day.

4. Take Guided Action, not forced action towards your desires - when you get into a meditative state daily and go into the place of Your Highest Good, you will receive clearer and stronger guidance as to what actions you should be taking to make it manifest for you - quicker and easier.

5. Let Go and Let God. Surrender to Faith and Allow your Angels and Guides to help you with the manifestation of your desires!
