Praxis your Earworms

by Bella Basura 

(Soundtrack: an inobstrusive background Music Concrete:

a gentle breeze of windchimes, trills of birdsong, soft footfalls, tinkling water, whale music etc.)

Soothing Voice:

This recording will teach you how to overcome your intrusive earworms.

This is your personal journey into the conchlea of your psyche,

Take you to the very eardrum of your mind.

Praxis your Earworms.

Get comfortable.

Lie down on your yoga mat,

Pull up your comfort blanket.

Close your eyes.

Imagine yourself in a boat on the river,

In a boat on the river,

In a boat on the river.

You’re in a boat,

On a tranquil still lake.

Relax, relax, relax,

I want you to relax.

Give into the peace.

Let yourself into the calm.

Give in to the peace.

What do you hear?

What can you hear?

What is calling you?

(suddenly loud) Praxis your earworms.

Lean into that sound,

Don’t recoil don’t pull back.

Fall into a spiral of renewal.

Embrace it,

Embrace it.

(suddenly loud) Praxis your earworms.

Don’t recoil don’t pull back.

Lean in,

Lean in,

Lean in,

And through,

In and through.

In and through.

(Soundtrack: background Music Concrete begins to fade)

(suddenly loud) Praxis your earworms.

I want you to acknowledge your earworms,

I want you to own them.

I want you to own them,

And let them go.

You are not your earworms,

You are not your earworms.

Your earworms are not the voice of god.

You are not your earworms.

Your earworms are not the voice of god.

Your earworms are passing distractions.

(suddenly loud) Praxis your earworms.

Push in through the clear light.

(loud) Praxis your earworms.

Push through into the pure sound.

(loud) Praxis your earworms.

(Soundtrack: silenced)

Push in and through,

Through and out,

And into,

Deafening silence.

Praxis your earworms.

(Soundtrack: 13 seconds of pure silence

Then an alarm goes off)
