I have heard this question a few times in recent years: if you, or your business, had a theme song, what would it be? I was totally stumped the first time I got the question. In fact, I was terrified, because we were going around the table, with a group of authors, and the moderator wanted each of us to give forth about our theme song. She thought anyone who didn’t know their theme song was, basically, a doofus.
She had a point. Shouldn’t we be able to encapsulate our business goals and qualities briefly? But do most of us have the talent to do that in verse, then make it a song? Hey, I don’t even enjoy picking songs for weddings or other theme parties. But finally, I realized there are a couple of songs that might represent me and my practice. First, I teach people specific ways to dissolve and finish with their pain: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. I teach people how exactly to find their inner gratitude and to move into joy. I say we are in/joy/meant. Second, I teach people to develop a strong core of Peace Within, so that stressors don’t bother them. Then, I encourage people to take that into their relationships and into the World. But more on that in a moment.
Victor Hugo, the author of Les Miserables, said,
Music expresses that which cannot be said on on which it is impossible to be silent.
And actress Zooey Deschanel has said,
Everyone should have a theme song! It should make you feel like a million dollars.
Finally, one day, I was walking along, feeling great, when a song started playing in my head: “Something’s been happening to me/I can’t believe it myself/suddenly I’m up on top of the World…never thought I could feel so free/flying away on a wing and a prayer…could it be me?” This turned out to be, “Believe It or Not” by Joey Scarbury. I realized, that’s the feeling I want my clients to have: free, at choice, feeling great.
My other theme song would be about peace, for the individual, leading to peace with others and peace for the Planet. If a billion people all had Peace Within, and a desire for peaceful relationships, how could there be rioting and war? Fortunately for me, someone has already written that song: Jill Jackson and Sy Miller wrote, Let There Be Peace on Earth (And Let it Begin With Me), and Vince Gill performed it in a Christmas album of the same name, released in 1993.
Do you have a theme song? Or have you thought of developing one? I would love to hear about it. I would love to hear that you, too, are living in the state I call: Healthy Happy Loving Loving Lifesm!
