It’s hard to beat the sounds of the river. Birds, boats, the lapping of the waves coming in… Heaven! I can close my eyes, relax & go to sleep in no time 😊

I hope you found some Zen in this video… Have a great day!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I was out on a clients property the other day & he asked if I would like to see the Creek… Yes was the answer of course 😊 Even on a Hot August day the water is nice and cool 😎 Being down there by the creek was so peaceful and ‘Zen like’ … The sound of the water with the frogs & birds & cicadas is almost Hypnotic.

This is privately owned property & is the homeowners personal respite from the world. We are going to build them a custom Water Feature up by their house so they can enjoy & relax to the sound of water all the time 😊

Beautiful Creek

I hope this little video brings a little ‘Zen’ into your day. When I want to relax, I just close my eyes and listen to the waterfalls & clear my mind. Within a few minutes I relax, my heart rate slows, my blood pressure drops & I literally feel better. Try it…

We always strive to make Water Features look as natural as possible. Using native stone and  mossy accent wood really helps too. This feature was just turned on for the first time 5 minutes before I took this video… Some of the stone was sourced from a local creek as well as this old cedar stump.

I LOVE ❤️ Waterfalls! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

 

I hope this brings a little Zen to your day!

To me, nothing is more southing and hypnotic than the sounds of the frogs and crickets and Waterfalls at night. It’s like having the Tennessee River in my backyard 😊

I hope these gentle sounds bring you to a place of Zen.

 

Have a great Monday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen has gotten to be a tradition! There’s no better way to calm the mind & spirit than a flowing stream or a waterfall. This short video of a simple Pondless stream & Waterfalls says it all – beautiful, organic & natural! A pleasure to sit by in the morning or evening. The perfect way to set the stage for today 😊 Have a Great Day!

Happy Pondering 🤔

Friday Radio Report…

I know I say this every week, But, this show is just FUN! It’s always Awesome to hang out with the 180 Crew! Dan & Sea Bass Rock! PLUS – today Laura Lamun was in the house talking about organic foods, essential oils and one of the coolest things I have ever seen – Sonic Sound Therapy! Laura never ceases to amaze with her vast knowledge of herbs, oils, foods and alternative methods of health and healing! She explained a bit about WHAT Sound Healing was today!

Laura showing Dan how “Sonic Sound Therapy” feels. She tried a little on me too – 1 word… AWESOME!

Sound healing is the therapeutic use of sound frequencies on a person, with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony by balancing the physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual aspects of their being. Laura demonstrated Sound Healing on us with her tuning forks and I have to say, it was really cool!
