This music is absolutely lovely, I look forward to listening to it. I got it in the mail yesterday, so far I have played it 5 times, I can't get enough of it. It make feels as if as was ice skating, turning, turning until I reach heaven.
I have made a beautiful terrarium while listening to the CD, it is enchanting and it does open up my creativity.
Please keep making more. This type of sound can heal many, many people, not only physically, but also spiritually. Alkemie is my favorite melody!! - MO
I found myself with a profound sadness for apparently no reason. After listening to reJuva, I am growing and processing. I have been ^uplifted^ with reJuva especially the last track, Rejuvenation. :) Also, my health is improving and I look forward to more abundance in all areas. Since listening to reJuva, I have found more people with like mind. --Linda
I listened to ReJuva last night; a very interesting experience. I found the sounds gradually led me into a different state of awareness, each successive section having a new effect and carrying me deeper into the sound. I physically felt the effects of the frequencies; for example, my back muscles were vibrating and twitching quite excitedly, and I could feel a sublte warmth, and other light energies, moving about my body. At one point, I resonated very strongly with an image I had seen on your website or somewhere in your literature. It depicts a person first at "normal" frequency, and then becoming equal to the frequency of the soundscapes, "becoming the sound" as you say. I felt that type of sensation first in my hands and then in my feet. It was strange and enjoyable in a new way; it felt to me as if my hands and feet were not there. An accurate way to describe it would be to say that they had dissolved. That is why I thought of that particular image; it seemed to me my hands and feet had changed frequency. Again this morning I listened to the CD while doing Tai Chi, and that was fantastic. Several times I felt a sensation of awakening, or a subtle knowing that some activations were taking place; and again many times I felt a warmth overcome me, especially at my head and neck. I have listened to ReJuva twice now, and both times I have certainly felt rejuvenated after listening. I also feel that I was guided to this particular CD first as a way of preparing for the DNA series. After thoroughly working with this one I think the DNA set will be an excellent and ready step. -- Kevin
I just had an extremely healing experience while listening to the ReJuva CD today and wanted to share it with you. I was lightly sleeping and felt my hands being drawn up towards my head in what I would describe as a prayer position. I then began having vivid dreams about my younger sister whom I've been at odds with for some years now. In my dreams she walked towards me and I opened my arms wide and asked her for her forgiveness from the depths of my heart and soul. As we hugged, I felt her release the anger she had been holding against me and hug me back. It was an incredible release. Our hearts beat as one. - J.H.
I am so in love with the latest phenomenon I really just want to be with it and do nothing else. The 6th track especially is mezmerising to me - so connected and so much letting go and no need. I feel very blessed and thankful in the cosmic sense for my world as I know it connected to the world of Shapeshifter. -- D.H.
As I once heard said, "I believe in coincidences, I've just never seen one". I'd read in the printed materials and discussed with Shapeshifter 2 the possibility that REJUVA may trigger some kind of cleansing and rejuvenating on any number of levels. It just so happens that about 2 weeks after starting to listen to REJUVA, my wife and I met and began treatments with an extremely adept and advanced colon hydrotherapist. The "cleansing and rejuvenating" are continuing now, many months later, and have turned out to be one of the most profound, empowering, and life-affirming things we've ever done for ourselves. Without a doubt, REJUVA was the catalyst. -- F.P.
Living Waters: sounds very familiar. I heard it before somewhere... a celebration of life and sound. I see a beach .. there are people dressed in white walking down the beach. I'm one of them I go in the water. A dolphin approaches me..he is taking me somewhere. We go deeper and deeper into the ocean. We reach a big cave and it is illuminated by white light in the middle. There are many whales and dolphins in a circle surrounding the light being...a gathering! Large crystals are in the cave, hanging from the ceiling. There is a light being in the center talking to us ...the dolphin seem to know her. Me too. It's a meeting of sorts....but also a concert. The whales and dolphins are enjoying the music. So are the crystals. We are all light beings. Superluminal: ancient sounds from the beginning of times...the birth of the stars...forged from sound, densified light. Long universal exhalation...then a pause...then inhalation...back to One. Integration of the 5 Elements: our friends are here surrounding Earth...we are all sending light and healing to Gaia, who reciprocates in return. A vibrant circle of light forms around Earth centered in Earth Core, then extends towards the Sun and other planets. The consicuosness of the planets and Sun unite into One in a beautiful dance of Love and Joy. Ascension into white light...completion, communion, perfection. -- AB
I have been working with the CD for a couple of weeks. I first meditated with it along with CD #2 and found that my need for meat and desire for many other processed foods has completely stopped. I no longer need these foods in my diet. I crave fresh fruits and vegies and have had a number of illnesses disappear. I no longer have HepC, alll MS, Sjorgrens and lupus symtems have disaappeared as well. I have been working on gall bladder and digestive system this last week with encourging results. I play it in my car during my hour drive to work and back about three days per week and have played it for my students. It seems to enhance their artwork and they have said that it makes them feel very calm and peacful.(I am an art teacher). Last Monday when two friends and myself meditated with ReJuva in a group session. Two of us had worked with the music before. One had not. We did a DNA activation meditation while listening. The woman who never worked with the music said she felt light come into her head travel through her into her heart and up her spine. She also traveled interdimensionally, she said it was one of the most powerful meditation experiences she has ever had. I am going to be lending it to my son tommorrow in hopes he can stop smoking cigrarettes. He's developed heart problems and high colesterol so he is now open to try it. -- KB
In my experience with ReJuva it is an amazing relaxing experience of revitalization of the mind and body. Whenever I am stressed or find it hard to think straight I can't help but sit down and listen to this wonderful cd. To feel my mind and body release that which is negative and holds me back from enjoying the day. I never once thought something so simple as music could do that for me, but we all know music has a high value in our everyday culture in all parts of the world. I was amazed at how much stress I had in my life after I realized it was all gone thanks to this cd and it's fellow companions such as DNA Activation series and Shamabala. But ReJuva is in its own area, a area of revivalization of the body and mind. DNA Activation and Shamabala do give this as well but ReJuva does this alot better. -- R, Austin, TX
After just 1 month of listening to
ReJuva, the urgency and import of my personal mission & purpose has been
amplified 10-fold. I have become increasingly aware not only of just how
much wisdom and asistance is being extended to humanity at this time,
but also of those things in my personal reality that needed to be released,
cleared away, for me to be able to fully embody & embrace the vibrational
sustenance. I have never been hesitant or questioning about taking on
my souls'endeavors -- just unclear at times as to what I needed to do
to expand into my brightest Light. ReJuva has been like having the missing
piece on my journey revealed. I have new eyes and my gratitude knows no
This soundscape has so much movement
and modulation in it that my etheric bodies are dancing in new and wonderous
ways. I've found new places where energy was stuck that have been challenged
to move forward by letting go into the pure joy of opening to new places
of Light. I am finding my OBEs and astral travels have been ramped up
and it is much easier for me to achieve lift off. --JG
After the first few times of listening
to the soundscape in a state of deep meditation, I went outside and actually
saw nature breathing in and out with me....awesome. -SC
This soundscape is compelling me to
use my voice in speaking my truth and standing in my power. My overall
energy levels have increased and my desires to youth myself by engaging
in healthful practices has expanded....I'm feeling younger and younger
each day. --GW
If I every doubted it before, I know
there is no looking back in my evolving self & I feel the inner power
and fortitude to live my life outloud. -LH
ACTUALLY WRITING THIS DURING MY 1ST LISTEN...
i found Shapeshifter years ago when googling "visionary music," as i am
an aficionado of visionary sound arts. at that time, i made a full acquisition
of their CD catalogue. a while later, 2001, Shapeshifter released the
quite excellent "Shamballa" disc which has some incredibly intense portions
that i aired on my radio show repeatedly, perhaps out of proportion because
i was enjoying them so much myself :) The earlier Shapeshifter works display
a steady increase with each release of compositional skill & complexity,
and a progression in understanding of the use of the medium. i recommend
1993's "The Odyssey" as great backsound for yogic exercise, massage and
other therapeutic activities. The 1996 4-CD set, "DNA Activation Series,"
has some spectacular moments but is overall deeply meditative, more darkly
gaseous than iridescent, and while energetically interesting and transformative,
somehow not coherent. the tryps involved were rather confused. "Shamballa,"
! now THAT was an unqualified success that i can unreservedly highly recommend
to anyone interested in channelled music. (o, did i mention? well that's
what it was basically: an atlantolemurian Aquarian trasmission. electronica
somewhere in the sethian/sirian region between angelic music and Steve
Roach. dark like soul; penetrating like psi. Light at times, but mostly
soulful. deep meditation. which brings us to the new disc which continues
this great direction set by "Shamballa." a long disc by even today's standards,
clocking in at an apparent 79:33, this is obviously well-considered narrative
electronica, surging with auric undercurrents at times, then gentle as
if handling a delicate flower. the disc begins with swirling astral waters,
has a visitation from the solar power, visits the woods, soars through
a sky of tranquility like a bird, then descends into deep meditation as
if visiting the below spaces of the Emerald Tablets, the "Halls of Amenti"
so-called (so it seems to me.) i don't expect everybody will be particularly
stoked with this part of the journey as one's energy is somewhat challenged
by a mysterious dissonance. this environment becomes deep space, filled
with all manner of cosmic interactions, radiation and astral phenomena,
where we are subjected to intense transformative forces. i experienced
healing energies at work at this point. then, the voice of a karnatic
singer and a didgeridoo shift the entire mood of the working to the long
piece, "Light of the Grail," which while still carrying the mood of an
lemurian-atlantean magickal working is able to cleverly inject a celtic
flavour and a shift to druidism, this leads to a very impressive encounter
with the Gaian earthsoul which is a mandala into which we dive ever deeper
to then be shown the Lifecodes & Essences. this is the showcase of the
entire album and really where the disc moves into clearly angelic Divine
spaces. it is also the cutting edge of Shapeshifter's work in sound therapy.
ending with a breathtaking harp solo over synth & voice, i must say it
fully vindicates this acquisition! the final movement,"Rejuvenation,"
is both visceral and grounding, seeming to seal in and affirm the work
that has been done and the changes that have been made. and promises of
future work that will occur and tranformations that will be made! fading
to a close on a very mellow groove, one comes out of it, at least i did,
feeling clarified and nourished. [and quite energized, i was up well past
my usual time for falling asleep that night] I must say on repeated listen
the recording has new gems to reveal. this may be one of those discs that
takes a number of listens for the conscious mind to start to "get it."
Suddenly, one realizes that animal sound is sculpted into the voicing.
On each listen, a new ethnic musical influence from a new region of the
world is added to the plethora. the disc seems to expand in its ramifications
with each new listen. "ReJuva" is a quantum jump for Shapeshifter, which
continues to improve with every release! in this day & age, when people
constantly ask me if i like this or that new "artist" and they mean Britney
Spears or Green Day or whoever, *THANK THE DIVINE!* i can say "who? naw,
i don't know that stuff" and go home to listen to Shapeshifter [or somesuch.]
This disc again partakes of the growing emphasis on HEALING which has
been the major motif of the Visionary releases this year. It can easily
be included as an exponent of this NEW LEVEL in the use of sound as medicine.
