The Story of Secret Places The benefits to be derived from meditation are several - it releases stress and worry, gives clarity of thought, and encourages physical healing and much, much more. Yet it is not easy! Most people find sitting still in silence very difficult. This album of meditation music was composed with busy people in mind. This is the kind of meditation you can do in your lunch hour, or while pursuing other activities like walking, dancing, Tai Chi, yoga or even house cleaning. People have even used this album to calm crying babies! You'll find yourself moving into a different space, losing yourself as calming words and music allow for a deeper letting go of tension, stress and worry. This calming of the mind allows for a deep state of relaxation allowing for breakthroughs and dissolving of blockages to happiness. The results have been nothing short of amazing; with reports coming in from parents to say that their children are sleeping more soundly, to people going through emotional problems telling me that when they listen they can actually feel the stress releasing, to others telling me that they are having much deeper meditative experiences when they do sit down to meditate. - Geraldine Teggelove. Meditation is the one thing you can do that will vastly improve your life starting right now, even with just 10 minutes a day. And while it can be hard to still the 'monkey mind', taking yourself off to your own Secret Place can be all the break you need in your busy life. Dr Geraldine Teggelove is a multi-talented metaphysician, inspirational speaker, meditation teacher, healer and singer songwriter. At the age of fifty-seven, her life began again in a most unexpected way. Now, with a Doctorate in Metaphysical Studies, she is fulfilling her real passion and purpose through helping people reach their full potential in life and live their dreams. Geraldine's Story... Geraldine had it all - or rather what others perceived to be 'all'. She owned several huge beautiful homes, an award winning business, had lots of spending money, went on regular overseas holidays, and more. But deep down, she was still missing that elusive 'something', that vague feeling that there was more to life. And then disaster struck. At an age when most people are thinking of retiring, or have already retired, Geraldine literally lost it all - complete and total financial meltdown. At fifty-seven, after a lifetime of achievement, she was completely broke and struggling to put food on the table. She felt totally demoralised, her sense of self worth lost. Bewildered and in shock by what had happened, she wondered how she was ever going to survive the next day, let alone the next few years and into retirement. The FLIGHT of the Phoenix - From the ashes of despair, a blazing Phoenix did arise! However, this story does have a happy ending! With the help of a metaphysical mentor, she reignited her passion for music and song writing, trained to become a Metaphysical mentor and counsellor herself, and then set about empowering others. What Others Have Said: 'Music ministers to the soul in ways that touch our deepest concerns and highest aspirations. The gift that Geraldine brings to music and meditation is profound, enabling the listener to open more fully to the Spirit within. Peacefulness, inspiration, forgiveness, empowerment ... these are but a few of the gifts Geraldine's music has brought to me, and I know that each listener will find special keys to personal growth and healing that is uniquely theirs. Listen, soar, expand and be free! Geraldine, you are truly a treasure. Thank you for the blessings you bring through your music.' - Dr. Susan Davie 'My life was becoming busier and demanding each year. I seemed to have less and less time and energy for myself, always attending to 'What had to be done.' As my family and work responsibilities grew, 'MY TIME' suffered. I desperately looked forward to long weekends away and annual holidays for MY TIME to recharge my batteries. The first week of my annual holidays would invariably result in me being sick!!. The second week would normally be taken up with sleeping; and the third week was when I would start to regenerate, re-energise and feel good, all in time to go back to work and do it all again! Something had to change. My motivation and energy was running out and I needed more, which was when I turned to relaxation and meditation. However all this takes time each day, time I didn't have, which is why Geraldine's music, meditation and relaxation techniques are so great. I can now incorporate these into my everyday life without taking specific time out of my busy day. Her music touches my soul, grounds me and reconnects me to my source of energy to recharge and re-energise my life. Thankyou Geraldine,' - John Warnock, Brighton, Victoria. 'Geraldine's music and her voice are truly inspirational and magical. The lyrics are God- inspired.' - Beverly Jones 'I loved the invitational nature of the meditation CD. Each of us have our secret places in which to find more of ourselves, or through which we re-energise. A boon! Geraldine's music is a delight! It is warm, intimate, and I feel I am being invited to listen to something special....like a personal prayer in places. Thank You, Geraldine.' - Rosemary C. Warragul, Victoria.
