Happy Chinese New Year!

Gong Xi Fa Cai, or wishing you a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year!

Sometimes called the Spring Festival, it is one of the most important traditional Chinese holidays. It is also called the Lunar New Year, especially by people outside of China.

The festival begins on the first day of the first lunar month of the Chinese calendar, that is today, and ends with a Lantern Festival on the 15th day.

Celebrated in areas with large populations of ethnic Chinese, it is considered the most important holiday for the Chinese. It had influence on the new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors, as well as cultures with whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction.

In Malaysia, it is a 2-day holiday and the ethnic Chinese here celebrate it in a big way. There will be open houses and food and Chinese New Year cookies and other goodies will be served to relatives and friends who come avisiting.

The elders will give out red packets of money, or "ang pows" to the younger ones who are not yet married. Inmates of old folks' homes and children's homes will also receive food, "ang pows" and mandarin oranges. It is a time of great rejoicing.

Be Master of Your Thoughts

Wouldn't it be great if you were master of your thoughts, instead of a slave to them?

So, for instance, when you want to be chilled out and relaxed, you can gently stop yourself from worrying about work. Or, if you need to be super-focused on the task at hand, you can quit dreaming about the weekend and harness all your mental resources to help you.

Well, you can. Not by effort, not by willpower, not by hypnosis ... but by simply listening to a special CD.

For years scientists have understood the relationship between audio frequencies and brainwave patterns and how to induce certain states of mind by listening to certain sounds. They call these sounds 'Binaural Beats'.

Now, thanks to the new range of Binaural Beat CDs at you can use this amazing technology to create whatever state of mind you wish. So, for instance you can use the 'Digital Drug' CD to create a feeling of euphoria and 'oneness' with the world; the 'Ultra-Deep Meditation' CD to reach the same meditative states it take gurus and Tibetan monks years to master; or the 'Razor Sharp Focus CD' to make your mind as concentrated as a laser beam.

With the correct application of binaural beat technology, you can train your mind to work for you, rather than against you. Check out
