Now, take the time to let yourself daydream about something relaxing.
Focus on your breath flowing in and out. When you are relaxed
and attentive, read on.
The third step to having absolute pitch is to program your mind.
This is the most exciting part!
It's highly recommended that you continue to do the exercises
from the previous two lessons. This will insure fast results.
This is the process:
You must first go to alpha level using the instructions from
lesson 2. With your instrument, while
in alpha, choose any four notes for this exercise (it's best to
choose notes that also use relative pitch in the beginning, like
a C major 7 chord, D minor 7 chord, etc.). Play each tone about
5 times in a row. In between playing each tone, imagine the tone
in your mind. Do this in as relaxed a manner as possible. Listen
deeply and easily. Don't try to listen, just relax and let the
tones come to you. In 3 sessions, you will have programmed the
entire chromatic scale. It's that simple! The important thing
is not to ask too many questions about this process. Asking questions
brings the critical mind into the picture and slows down the programming
In all of life, it's very important to be aware of the critical
mind. The critical mind is extremely important- such as when searching
for the truth about a situation. But when we want to program a
positive behavior or belief, the critical mind can negatively
influence our decision to do so.
So when directed, the critical mind can be a wonderful problem
solver. When undirected and unfocused, the critical mind can build
barriers to positive programming or even cause you to cling to
negative programming! We'll talk more about the critical mind
and how it relates to absolute pitch in lesson 5.
There you go, an extra life-lesson thrown in for free :)
Now, it must be understood that you might recognize these tones
in some situations but not in others. For instance, while practicing
or ear training, you may know what a C sounds like before you
play it but, while listening to the radio, you might not recognize
that a song is in the key of C. You will better activate this
mind programming in the next session!
