Album Notes
This CD is a great tool to help you relax and meditate. It is advisable that you listen to the CD in a safe and comfortable place at first until, you are aware of how relaxed you may get. Once you are comfortable that you will not be too distracted, you may even want to try listening in the car. Another way in which this CD can be utilized is while running on the treadmill. Although this marketed as a relaxation tool, you can use it with headphones to gather your energy to move. Once you have finished working out you can focus on your goals and watch the obstacles dissolve in front of you.

Throughout your visual journey you will embark on an experience like no other. You will experience a refreshing and cleansing feeling of your chakras. (Chakras are also known as the energy centers of the body.)This compilation is directed towards those who are novice to expert level massage therapists. The CD also has original soothing background music by DayStar Studios.

Massage Therapists who have used this CD during their sessions have had great results and responses from their clients. Some of the rave reviews have been in regards to the resolution of chronic pain levels. With the use of massage therapy and this visualization CD, the pain can be eliminated completely. This is a versatile CD which can be easily integrated for a full session, or partial session of massage.

This CD was designed to provide mutual success for both the massage therapist and the client, in achieving their goals of pain management and relaxation. When you are able to meet your goals through the use of my CD, you will help me achieve my personal goal of seeking to better the world one person at a time, through pure happiness and relaxation.

I strongly encourage you to write a review, even if you find that this was not the type of relaxation method you were looking for. If you find for whatever reason that it did not work for you in the way you had hoped, please feel free to contact me. I may be able to assist you and make suggestions as to how you can fine tune your process. I personally use the visualization, as it is table tested and have discovered significant results with my own clients.

I am more than willing to make live appearances if you have an appropriate venue for me to do so. Until then, enjoy!

My Bio.

John Larkin has been gathering the strength for this album for over 30 years. Raised on an Iowa farm John saw the continuity of life, the seasonal changes and the persistence of life. John lives by the philosophy that "Life always finds an expression".

In John's experience through the military, John found order, but after three years, he knew that there was no room for creative expression in the military. After his time in the military, John lived in a yogic ashram for three years. During this time he focused on meditating and studying teachers such as Ram Das and Anandamurti. The balance of social responsibility and introspection has lead John to try several fields, success in some, and utter failure in others. John describes some of the failures as the biggest blessings ever.

There have been several influences on John over the years. One of these influences has been Dennis Waitley. Dennis helped John through the 80's with his Goal Mind series and the simple concept that maybe the soil, not the seed was bad and if you moved yourself into good soil, you could flourish. Hence, "life always finds an expression".

Another of John's influences has been Carolyn Myss, in her Anatomy of the Spirit. This has added giant pieces to the puzzle when she equated the Sacraments to the Chakras. Through a deeper understanding John realizes that giving way for an individual to script their life without distractions and with Divine continuity.

An influential series in John's life is the Thomas Covenant series. Through this series John was able to identify with a character who found that all actions have a reason and the Strands of Starlight series on the uses of power.

John has been a hands on healer since 1994 and uses his entire past experiences to help others. He found the imagination a powerful tool in helping others let go of the mental and emotional root of their physical pain. John also closely examines the underlying causes of the mental and emotional pain in concern for the spiritual well being of his clients. It is through this very practice and methodology of techniques that John has helped to transform many of his clients into masters of their own fate.

On a more personal note, John has been married since 1988, to the most tolerant and understanding woman on the planet. They share a home in Aurora, Colorado where they are raising 2 beautiful daughters. John's wife Sherry is a Nationally Certified Medical Massage Therapist and Reiki Master Teacher. Both of John and Sherry's daughters, Miranda and Elthia, are still seeking their own path, after all they are still children.

Now for the technical aspects: The length of the CD is 26 minutes and 13 seconds long. This CD will inspire and touch your psyche on many different levels, mentally, physically and spiritually.

Gathering Strength
I have many meditation CDs, but this one might be my favorite. Let's call this "defragging" the Chakras! Bringing our spiritual energies into clear focus and "gathering up" the bits and pieces that have fragmented. His voice is transcendental and healing in its own right. This is a MUST BUY for anyone who wants something special for guided meditation or background for healing sessions, yoga, or just a "close your eyes for a few minutes and relax and rejuvenate" break from the stress of life. Thank you, John!

absolutly fantastic, a wonderful relaxation aide
This CD has been absolutely fantastic with helping very stressed out clients relax and find a new meaning in life. I have had great results using this CD during therapy sessions. I am ready for the next one.


Unique support for personal power in daily activities.
Unlike other CD's of this type, John's CD is helpful performing daily activities more efficiently from start to finish as well as providing relaxation to allow deeper sleep. Listening while driving I stay calmer & arrive at my destination not needing to unwind from the drive! Paying bills, doing housework & performing other stressful activities I have the power to begin & complete each task faster with accuracy. It seems like I actually 'relax' while I complete formerly stressful tasks. Unbelievable. Thanks John for taking the time to give of yourself to benefit those of us looking for this incredible personal support. Are there more CD's to come? I sure hope so!
