Posts Tagged ‘Brian Wilson’

carl_20and_20al.jpg Psychic work involves picking up people’s “vibes” bad or good. When Brian Wilson wrote the song “Good Vibrations” he mentioned in a interview that many animals can pick up vibrations from humans.Our dog “Angel”  had dove into the trash for a little terrier garbage feast…she definitely picked up my vibe!

She smelled like wet lettuce and old Doritos.

It reminds me of when I do a mediumship or psychic session with an angry or depressed spirit or client. Their “stuff” can get all over me. If I am not careful this negative energy can stick around for days. Like many mediums and energy workers I do try and protect myself with prayer and light meditations. This helps but some of the basics still apply .

Water,water,water! I find that drinking good ol’ H2O really helps clear the body and rejuvenate it…try adding lemon to room temperature water drink at least 10 glasses daily. Remember that much water intake requires minerals so take em’  (I use Ultimate Minerals from http://www.greenlifesaver.net ). I also use Chandrika soap an ayurvedic soap that cleanses the spirit as well as the body ( wash with the intent of cleaning the chakras top of the head on down ). Also avoid sugar! Sugar at times has been my crack of choice and like crack  I end up like Chris Rock in the movie “New Jack City”. High amounts of sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, and brown sugar can really build yeast in your system and totally gunk your intuition receptors .

Reiki and massage.. do it. Find yourself a good Reiki practitioner and a good massage therapist. These modalities are important in reducing stress and clearing the residue from the body’s chakras . My body tends to “tense up” after a series of readings and a good massage will help put me back on track.

Now I am going to say something that might piss off a lot of people!   When you’re not feeling grounded after doing loads of energy work a glass of red wine and a steak really helps  reconnect with the body ( also eat organic meat and try an organic wine some are wonderful! )

From time to time I’ll add other pieces of info from other energy workers and place them on the blog …hope this was helpful ..if not at least maybe a chuckle.

It’s been a long, long time, my what a worldBrian_Wilson730_MainPicture
There’s trouble everywhere, I’m sure you’ve heard
This must be what they mean, love conquers everything
Tell me it’s not a dream, say it’s true
Say it’s you, say it’s love

In Hawaii there’s a place known as Waimea Bay220jan-berry-2
Where the best surfers in the world come to stay
And ride the wild surf they come to try
To conquer those waves some 30 feet high

REFRAIN
Ride ride ride the wild surf
Ride ride ride the wild surf
Ride ride ride the wild surf
Gotta take that one last ride

Surf fever brings them here to meet the test
And hanging round the beach you’ll see the best
They’re waxed up and ready just waiting for
The surf to build up on the northern shore

“Ride the Wild Surf” -Jan and Dean

This is something I’ve always wanted to see. A Jan and Dean CD box set. Evidently there are many other fans who want the same.

There is an online petition to have the powers that be to produce such a gem. Read on…

To:  EMI / Capitol

This is a petition calling for a Box Set CD Release for Jan & Dean.

From late 1950s R&B, to Surf music, and the Psychedelic era, Jan & Dean produced 26 chart singles between 1958 and 1966. Sixteen of these were national Top 40 hits on the Billboard and Cash Box charts, seven of which reached the national Top 10. Four of Jan & Dean’s albums also made the national Top 40 during that period. jan-dean2

In April 1966, Jan Berry was critically injured in an automobile accident, resulting in brain damage and partial paralysis. From 1966 onward, Jan & Dean made new music separately, and occasionally together. They hit the road again in the late 1970s, during Jan Berry’s high-profile fight to overcome the effects of traumatic brain injury. This story was told on national television in the highly rated film “Deadman’s Curve” (1978), which paved the way for “Phase II” of Jan & Dean’s road career. They toured consistently throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and into the new millennium. Following Jan Berry’s untimely death in March 2004, Dean continues to honor the music with live concert appearances.

Jan Berry has now been dead for more than three years, and it is long past time for Jan & Dean to be honored with a comprehensive Box Set CD Release. There are many options for such a package, including the superior original mono mixes, and well as various outtakes and backing tracks. There is enough of a fan base and market to warrant such a package.

As a songwriter and singer, Jan Berry had his first Top 10 hit in 1958, before Phil Spector. As an arranger and producer (signed first to Nevins-Kirshner and then to Screen Gems), Jan Berry worked with Hollywood’s elite studio musicians long before Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson did the same.

EMI now holds Jan & Dean’s Screen Gems catalog, encompassing their most famous hits and album cuts.

Artists who achieved less success than Jan & Dean during their careers have been given the Box Set treatment. It’s now time for Jan & Dean to have their own comprehensive Box Set career retrospective. This would be a popular released for EMI, or it could be farmed out to another label, such as Shout Factory.

A lotta people out there hurtin’ and it really scares me

Love and mercy that’s what you need tonight
So, love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was standin’ in a bar and watchin’ all the people there
Oh the lonliness in this world well it’s just not fair

Love and mercy that’s what you need tonight
Love and mercy tonight- “Love and Mercy”-Brian Wilson

Summer….61,

A goddess became my song,

I fell in her ocean eyes,

As endless as the skies,

Forever she’ll be my Surfer Girl.

“Forever She’ll Be My Surfer Girl”- Brian Wilson

Thought I would post the promotional trailer for “That Lucky Old Sun”. It shows that Brian still has an ear for song and is excited for this release. I know I am.
