Mind Medicine

I believe that everyone creates a path that we trudge optimistically towards our goals. Sometimes we get turned around and sometimes we might stumble and fall or almost fall. Whatever the case may be it jolts your system and you have to regroup so that you can continue on the path of your goals. Sometimes it's hard to get up or keep moving but stopping should not be an option.
Treat your life as if it's a movie with a theme song and music for each stumble and triumph. If you need some assistance in finding the music to pick you up and put you back on your path you might want to check out Soul Motivations (Mind medicine) by Dwayne Barnes. You can purchase this cd on cdbaby.com and have the disc sent to you or download the mp3 version of it for quicker gratification. You can also listen to a couple of the tracks before you purchase it. I have 3 favorites already. Onna' Move, Beautiful Life and So So Good.
I happen to know Dwayne and knew that he is an actor, producer, song writer and stylist, but he kept what feels like a secret from me. Although I'm sure it wasn't really a secret. Guess I just didn't ask the right question. He can sing as well!
Dwayne has a voice that is reminiscent of old skool soul with a neo soul current reality. In old skool soul you get your emotions of love laid out on the table that rang true for so many. Neo soul does that same thing but with a new beat to keep up with the times. This CD of Dwayne's is full of emotions but not the emotions that one has already heard about. Soul Motivations is about honoring yourself and realizing that you can do whatever it is that you need to do. You just have to believe in yourself.
So if you need some encouragement because you've lost your way a little don't fret. Listen to this mind medicine to give you the dose of what you need to achieve what at the moment might feel unachievable.
Thank you Dwayne for sharing your gift with me and to thank you I'm sharing it with others, gladly.

I previewed the cd, and it sounds great. "Free" sounds like it will be really good song, once I purchase my copy of it to hear the entire song. :)
