This week I received an email from a young guy called Shwyn, saying that he had been inspired to write an affirmational song based on the law of attraction. Well I watched it and I was stunned. It is a beautiful song, very inspirational and it gave me goosebumps as he has such a powerful voice – here is the video, get comfortable, take 5 minutes out and just relax and enjoy it:
Also, just for your information, here is a little section of the script from the first verse – print it an pin it up 🙂
I can be what I want to be,
I can dream, have fantasies.
I’ll get there, yes I believe,
If I pursue I will achieve.
If I just realise my full potential.. I’m a powerful Individual
(Lyrics from Shwyn- Individual)
I was really eager to ask Shwyn a few questions too which he came straight back with, so here’s a little interview with the artist
Interview with Shwyn
Free Affirmations: Thanks for the video Shwyn, I love it and you’ve got an amazing natural voice! Can you give our readers just a little blurb about yourself; who you are and where you come from, a little about your background?
Shwyn: Thank you for having me. Well I was born and raised in London, Tottenham. I grew up in a loving home on a council estate, with 3 siblings and great parents who always worked hard, but yet still couldn’t seem to quite overcome the financial struggles and hardships that life had to offer. Growing up though, I was a very creative boy, and always felt I was special in some way. Not understanding how to express all this power at a young age, I was at times quite troublesome.
Free Affirmations: Is singing something which has always been part of your life?
Shwyn: Yes, well I was brought up going to church where I loved to sing, my mum loved to sing around the house too. I think I stopped singing around the age of 13, when I started secondary school here. As you tend to try and fit in at that age, where I was singing wasn’t seen to be too cool so to speak, and not very masculine. So from that age on-wards I drifted more to the technical side of music, recording, mixing, DJ’ing etc. It’s only recently I decided to work on my first solo album and started singing again, so I’m still developing my confidence again in that area. I guess I should write a few affirmations for confidence (laughs).
Free Affirmations: Tell me about writing the song – where did the inspiration come from, was it easy to write?
Shwyn: The inspiration came at a point for me when I was feeding my mind with positive material on a regular basis. I’ve always believed there is a lot more to life than what we see, and I committed my time to developing myself, reading books from authors such as Wallace D Wattles, Troward and Bob Proctor. By saturating my mind with this sort of material, my way of thinking started to change. I wanted to share this with as many people as I could, and my desire expressed itself in the most natural way to me, which was through music.
Free Affirmations: So have you always used positive affirmations yourself? Can you tell me a little about how you started and what they have help you to do?
Shwyn: I’ve been using them around 5 years now, I started because of research into how the mind works, and then I got into the law of attraction. At first I couldn’t quite see any benefit from them, but through study and developing awareness, I now understand affirmations always work and anyone can benefit from them. You could say our whole life is made up of affirmations. Affirmations can be positive or negative. Continuous repetition of a new positive idea will become fixed in the mind and replace the old. Affirmations work for me in every area of my life, and they can do the same for everyone.
Free Affirmations: What sort of response have you received from people who have listened to your song ‘Individual’?
Shwyn: Wow, the response had been incredible. I’ve had people from all over the world message me, telling me of the positive influence the song has had on their lives and how it had helped them in many ways. Such is the power of the song, I myself even like listening to it on a daily basis to keep my mind focused.
Free Affirmations: Thank you for sharing your story and this great song with us. May success always be with you.
Shwyn: Thank you very much for your support. I would just like to say to all, that you may have heard people say many times that
anything is possible, so much that it can almost become a cliche, but I have discovered it’s really true. Spend time on developing yourself, read and re-read the authors I have mentioned I sing this song on a daily basis, please share this information with your family and friends, surround yourself with it, and soon your mind will take the form of these things. If I can do it, then so can you.
