“I started giving a copy of Wishes of the Soul to everyone I do business with, and I just couldn’t believe the response I got.  Not only did I get a ton of telephone calls and thank you notes—which by the way, I never once got for the very expensive gifts I have given in the past—but, I even landed a new account I’ve been trying to get for years!”

"Allow these words and images to saturate your spirit for an interlude of reflection, Grace and peace from the pen of Alexander Berardi╔This wonderful little book helps us look deep within our soul and rediscover the parts of ourselves we thought were forever lost."

"We all seek mirrors in which we see reflected the "Wishes of the Soul". I have found such a mirror in Alexander Berardi's simple yet profound poem, expressed through accompanying beautiful visuals. As a visually oriented person, I find that the illustrations illuminate the text, revealing new meanings. The message that reverberates through "Wishes of the Soul" is immensely comforting and life affirming. It is a blueprint for living the good life, and every step is resonant with God's grace and love. I have been aware of Alexander Berardi's work for years and enjoy his almost intuitive sense of God's grace and wisdom. In this slim volume, you can savor that balm for the soul, as filtered through Berardi's sensitive and passionate words. In short: this small book can make a big difference in your life."

"Some of he most powerful words ever expressed about the most important of human values: courage, service, humor, tenacity, acceptance, friendship and peace."   

Chris Singleton—Pro baseball player and radio commentator


"What a wonderful book! It is small enough that reading it takes little effort, and yet the words are so sensitive and encouraging, I've read it more than once. It makes me think, but always in a good way. It is beautifully illustrated and soothing to look at. The CD is so calming and relaxing. However, I wouldn't suggest listening to it while driving as it can definitely put you in a different time and place where traffic and congestion just don't fit in. Seriously, the book and CD are a wonderful combination of peace, challenge and development of self! I highly recommend both of them!"

Here's what just a few World-Class Celebrities are saying about this Amazing New book...

 

 

"We all seek mirrors in which we see reflected the "Wishes of the Soul."  I have found such a mirror in Alexander Berardi's simple yet profound poem, expressed through accompanying beautiful visuals. 

 

I know from my own twenty plus years of ministry as The Painter of LightÖ, that art speaks to people in the language of inspiration and hope.  I've often noted on the faces of people who attend my events a yearning for something beyond the routine of everyday life.  I like to think that my paintings provide glimpses of that for some people.  I am certain that "Wishes of the Soul" will satisfy those yearnings for all who approach it with an open heart. 

 

"Wishes of the Soul" is, in the best sense of the word, a collaboration.  As Berardi explains, he is perhaps more properly understood as the vehicle through whom the magically powerful words were transmitted, rather than the author of the poem.  He tells us that on each reading, he is struck by "the searing power of the words," in much the same way that other readers are.  We know that the apostle Paul prayed for bits of cloth, napkins and other inanimate objects as touch points for faith, and that he would send them out as silent messengers of God's love.  Might it not be that God similarly graced Alexander Berardi's words with the transforming power of His love?

 

The collaboration extends to the human plane, as a chorus of talented artists enhanced the penetrating verbal messages with radiant art.  As a visually oriented person, I find that the illustrations illuminate the text, revealing new meanings.  The message that reverberates through "Wishes of the Soul" is immensely comforting and life affirming.  "Know yourself," we're urged.  We are further told: "Accept yourself as you are.  Discover the divine gifts hidden below your surface.  Find your life task.  Remain steadfast in your mission.  Make a difference."  It is a blueprint for living the good life, and every step is resonant with God's grace and love.

 

I have been aware of Alexander Berardi's work for years and enjoy his almost intuitive sense of God's grace and wisdom.  In this slim volume, you can savor that balm for the soul, as filtered through Berardi's sensitive and passionate words. 

 

In short: this small book can make a big difference in your life."

Could Others Be Right

 "They Laughed When I Brought Home A CD Called Wishes Of The Soul...

Until It Began To Play!"

 

Those are the words of a University of Maryland senior, talking about the reaction he got from his college roommates--a rough and tumble group of UMBC athletes--who thought their best friend had just "lost it."  But as the music filled the room, their laughter quickly turned to silence, and then each young man went on his own private emotional rollercoaster ride...

 

What is it about this amazing new Music CD that touches so many different  kinds of people in so many different kinds of ways? 

 

Won't you please tell us why...

  

"No one could have anticipated  this," says Alexander J. Berardi, creator of a new music CD entitled Wishes of the Soul.  Berardi's referring to the overwhelming number of enthusiastic testimonials for his new music release--many of which describe miracle happenings, as a result of simply listening to the music.  

 

Originally, the Wishes of the Soul Music CD was designed to be nothing more than a compliment to Berardi's new, illustrated inspirational gift book of the same name.   "It was an afterthought, really," commented Berardi at a recent press conference announcing the music project's release.  "It was just something we thought would be really cool to do."    Cool? Apparently.  An afterthought, maybe...but with unexpected and amazing consequences.  

 

"The work seems to transcend all age, racial and cultural barriers," said Berardi.  "It touches people on some deep level--to the point where they think it was written just for them."    

 

Is There a Secret, Underlying Power of Music?

 

Music has been known to have a positive effect on both mental and physical health since ancient times, when people used singing, dancing and chanting as a part of rituals to throw out the evil spirits that supposedly caused disease.   At the very least, music has the ability to alter our mood, change our emotions, inspire creativity and enhance romance.  But recent studies have shown us there's far more power in music than anyone of us could have predicted.   Let's look to the experts for some answers...

 

 

Did You Know... The Right Kind of Music Can Make You Smarter?

 

The most current research suggests, for example, that listening to Classical music, such as Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos in D major, can actually boost your IQ by eight to nine points.  This is what researchers are now calling the "Mozart Effect."    Researchers discovered that simply listening to Mozart and music like it, resulted in temporary sharpening of the subjects' spatial-temporal reasoning, as measured by the Stanford-Binet IQ test.  In short,  listening to music actually made students smarter.  

 

Can Music Really Heal Your Body, Mind And Soul?

 

The same kind of music that has proven to sharpen the intellect, may also sharpen your eyesight.  According to a recent BBC News release (June 5, 2006), listening to music like that on the Wishes of the Soul CD has shown to help improve the peripheral vision of patients with glaucoma or neurological conditions.   The article quoted research published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology.

Dateline: New Orleans, 2006 -

Music heals the soul in the aftermath of Katrina 

 

Even corporate America recognizes  the supernatural healing power found in music.  Shell Oil and AIG recently joined previous sponsors, such as Acura and Sheraton, to present this year's New Orleans Jazz Fest.  Shell Oil's slogan for the event captures it perfectly: "Bear witness to the healing power of music."

 

 

Why does music affect us the way it does? 

 

World renowned Japanese medical Researcher, Masaru Emoto, who has made a life's work out of studying music's effect on the formation of ice crystals, believes it's because humans are made up of over 90% water.  Emoto's research has shown the startling effect music can have in the formation of ice crystals-- the right kind of music rendering them well-formed and breathtakingly beautiful, the wrong kind of music creating crystals that are severely mutated and horribly ugly.  Dr. Emoto--who actually plays music to jugs of water, then  pours out samples into Petri dishes and  freezes them under strict scientific observation-- feels music also affects humans on a cellular level.  The eminent researcher also believes that patients undergoing therapy for debilitating diseases such as cancer, or chronic conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis might well benefit from being "immersed" in the type of music found on the Wishes of the Soul CD.   He's not alone.

In an article published last year in the Southern Medical Journal, researchers Dr. Kathi J. Kemper and Dr. Suzanne C. Danhauer of the Department of Pediatrics at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC, observed that music is increasingly being used to enhance well-being, reduce stress and distract patients from unpleasant symptoms.

 

 

Music Helps people with Chronic Pain

When two German researchers published results of their study examining music's effect on the chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain and polyarthritis, they noted a "significant reduction of pain intensity and pain-related disability," in patients exposed to music.  More recently, French research published in 2005 found music to be effective in controlling chronic low back pain in hospitalized patients. 

 

Music is also being used as a complement to rehabilitation care.  Recent reports show that music therapy seems to strengthen communication and physical coordination skills, as it improves the physical and mental functioning of those suffering from neurological disabilities or developmental disorders.  Those with learning, speech and hearing problems may also find listening to the right kind of music helpful.

 

 

Reduce the need for Drugs

The proper kind of music reduces the need for medication during childbirth and complements the use of anesthesia during surgery and dental work, especially when children undergo medical and surgical procedures. Music has also proven useful in newborn care of premature infants. 

 

An article published in the May 22, 2006 edition of Daily India showed that although the full benefits of music therapy are still being studied, we know quite a bit already.   According to the article, studies in mental health, for example, have shown that music therapy is effective in relieving anxiety and stress, promoting relaxation and treating depression.  Music therapy also seems to benefit people with emotional problems--making positive changes in their mood, helping them to deal with stress and anxiety and controlling anger. 

 

The healing effects of music are not limited to mental health.  Music is now widely being used to augment medical treatment  in hospitalized patients with burns, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.   Music can also ease the effects of chronic pain.

 

"I was skeptical when my wife brought home a copy of Wishes of the Soul to help me relax during my weekly chemotherapy treatments.  I don't know what it is about the music, but it's gotten me through some pretty rough periods.  Now, I also listen to it in my car as I'm driving--I just love it.  Our 3 year-old son Michael loves it too."

Music therapy also helps to enhance the well-being of the elderly, including those suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. 

 

For the last 19-years Cathy Maglaras, has taught music and band at Cockeysville Middle School, in Towson, Maryland.   Maglaras is an accomplished pianist and violinist.  These days, as often as not when she plays her music, it's not to merely entertain, but to speed the healing process of the sick or to calm and comfort the dying.

 

"I saw its power and the effect that it had on people,"  Maglaras recently told a reporter for the Towson Times.  "I just couldn't help but share it," said Maglaras, who often plays as a volunteer at assisted living centers, hospices and even occasionally at funerals.   "I have played for a lot of people who are in their last moments - we call it actively dying - and it's such an intimate moment," she said.  "I'm just humbled to be able to part of such an intimate time for people and their families."

 

 

Experts say: The Effects Of Noise Pollution Could Be Ruining Our Society and Killing Our Quality of Life--But What's The Answer? 

 

Noise pollution has impact on the behavior of both children and adults.  Research shows, we're less likely to care about one another in a noisy environment.  One study looked at how passers-by responded to a person in need in the presence of noise. While a noisy lawn mower roared nearby, a woman with a broken arm dropped some books and tried to pick them up.  No one stopped to help her.  When the lawnmower was turned off and the scene repeated, several people stopped to help her pick up her books.

 

It's no wonder then, with our noise-polluted environment, that Americans, Europeans, and half the civilized world, for that matter, have growing problems with sleeping, concentrating, dealing with stress and being civil toward one another.   Fortunately, there is more to sound than the negative effects of noise.  

 

Author and Wishes of the Soul creator, Alexander J. Berardi, explains:  "Hippocrates (c460-370 BC) taught us to treat like with like--fight poison with poison.   Just as slowing down in a rushed environment can actually have the opposite effect of helping us move ahead faster, we can reduce the harm of noise pollution by listening to an opposite form of noise."   According to Berardi: the opposite of noise is music.  "The ability of music to restore and promote health and wellbeing is, according to recent scientific findings, as powerful as noise's ability to destroy them," said Berardi.

According to the British Complementary Medicine Association and the British Osteopathic Association, stress and anxiety are known to be two of the biggest causes of illness. 

 

Music, like that found on the new Wishes of the Soul music CD can help combat stress and attack anxiety by helping slow down the heartbeat and reduce blood pressure, helping the brain move into the alpha rhythm associated with relaxed awareness.  Visualisation techniques--where we imagine ourselves in a place less trying than the one we are in presently-- also aid in relaxation.  The soothing, peaceful rhythm and powerful melody found on Wishes of the Soul helps in this manner, too.    As a result, you can expect your rate of respiration will slow, your blood pressure will fall and you will become deeply relaxed.  Listen for as little as five or ten minutes on a daily basis, and you should begin to feel the benefits. 

 

 

 

 

Nature sounds found to calm our nerves and reduce stress

Researchers say, listening to soothing music and gentle sounds like ocean waves or a human heartbeat (all of which are blended together to comprise the beautiful and peaceful musical selections that make up the hour-long Wishes of the Soul music  CD) is an effective aid to prayer, relaxation and meditation.  

 

The key to using music for healing is not to listen critically, but to allow yourself to be, as Tokyo-based researcher Dr. Emoto suggests, bathed in the sound.   Listeners of Wishes of the Soul can't help but become part of the music.  As a result they tend to experience beneficial physical and emotional effects almost immediately.   One Wishes of the Soul listener said: " I could feel the stress and pain leaving my body.  I felt my breathing ease and my muscles relax."   

 

 

Listening In You Car Might Even Keep You Safer

 

A recent survey of 1,780 drivers for the British car-insurance company Privilege Insurance found that listening to music may help reduce road rage and decrease the chance of an accident.  Most respondents with good driving records said music relaxed them when driving and aided their concentration.  Safe drivers in the survey tended to play the kind of easy listening and classical-style music found on the Wishes of the Soul music CD in their cars.   Dr. Nicola Dibben, a music psychologist from the University of Sheffield who carried out the study on behalf of Privilege, concludes: Listening while driving stimulates not only the mind but also the body which in turn produces heightened alertness and reduced fatigue.

 

 

Well, there you have it.  Experts agree: music can promote health and wellbeing, ease chronic pain, enhance creativity, make us smarter and keep our car insurance rates from going up.   It can also help bring us into the world and gently ease us out.  Science is proving, there really is amazing power in music. 

 

But there's still one question left to answer: 

 

Why this music--why Wishes of the Soul?  

What is it about the music on this particular CD that has resulted in the reports of miracles and the like?  

The answer might be found in the music's origin. 

 

Alphonse Stephenson, the music's composer--a Catholic Priest, and former Broadway music director--composed the music based on a series of ancient Gregorian chants.  When Father Alphonse Stephenson first played the music for his approval, Berardi remembers being overtaken with a sense of peacefulness followed by excitement and pure elation.  "There was a haunting quality to the music, I knew immediately there was something special about it," Berardi recalls.   Berardi's initial feelings are now being confirmed by thousands of listeners all over the world.   "Not a day goes by, that we don't receive some new account of how this work has impacted someone's life," said Berardi.   One of those people is world-famed artist Thomas Kinkade who put his comments in the most succinct and profound way:  "This little book and CD can make a BIG difference in your life."  

 

But don't take anyone else's word for it.  You really need to experience the Wishes of the Soul music CD for yourself.   But it's not available in stores.   And up until now...This special Limited Edition Release has only been available at Alexander Berardi's live presentations.  But for a limited time only, we're making it available to you now.   But we're not sure how long this offer will last, due to overwhelming popularity, supplies are critically low.  You must act immediately not to be disappointed.  No "Rain Checks" please.
