Paradiso And The Power Of Mind

Paradiso Had a Powerful Power Of Mind Moment

Raving in the rain reminded me how the law of attraction is REAL.

I've always believed in karmic retribution. The ol' classic "what goes around, comes around." If you pay close attention, you can see where it comes to play in your life. A lot of this is due to our minds. I'm sure of it. If you aren't aware of "the secret" or the idea of the law of attraction, I highly suggest looking into it. You don't have to be "spiritual" or "new age" to recognize it's play in your life.

Even if you see the law of attraction as prayer, it is still working.

Luckily, I was surrounded by like-minded people at Paradiso 2018. People who believe in the power of positive thinking.

Picture this: we're raving in the Gorge Amphitheater to some sick beats. BROHUG is honestly just getting started. I'm still sitting but my arms are waving in the air. A man has just slid down the hill due to some moisture. Things are rowdy, but not near 100% yet.

Then over the speakers we hear, "Everyone there are lightning strikes near by. We're going to need to evacuate the area. We love you guys, but you have to move away from the equipment. This is for your safety." And, on cue, rain began to pour.

There are two kinds of people in this scenario:

Group one's weekend is completely ruined. Everything is now "bullshit."

Group two says, "This is the Pacific Northwest! It'll pass."

So two things happened. Most people from the first group evacuated the whole festival to return to camp. This lightened the energy. People from the second group, which I was a part of, evacuated the stage areas and huddled under big tents.

This is where my rave fam met Jeff the pineapple.

We gave our offerings to Jeff (I gave him my kandi that said "plant powered"), and we raved in a circle around him. We called for the sun to come back. We whooped and hollered at the clear skies slowly crawling our way. We sang "Just A Friend" at the top of our lungs.

It was less than an hour of praying/attracting before they started letting people back through the gates. It was a huge ordeal. We yelled and made sure everybody knew that the party was back on.

It was almost like, "What do we do now?" but Pendulum came on to the Wreckage stage with the absolute best energy. He apologized for Gramatik, who had missed his set due to the weather delay, and played one of his songs in tribute.

Then he told us, "A little rain won't get us down. Take a look at the sun."

Then he fucking killed it. It was magical. Like we had controlled the weather — and we did!

    Concerts Are My Guilty Pleasure And I Am Not Sorry About It

    Sometimes my bank account doesn't like me because of it.

    There is something about the flash of the lights, the sound of the band coming out, the other excited people around you, and the intense feeling of seeing someone you like live. Concerts are such a unique medium that bring together the artists and the fans in a pretty close way. I have been going to concerts for most of my life and I have to say I don't know what it is, but there is something so special about concerts in my life.

    No matter how many things that I do in life, I do try to be careful with my money and I try not to overspend on things, but concerts are definitely one of my main guilty pleasures. I am also definitely that person who likes to try and get the VIP/ Meet and Greet Experience when I go to shows. The mindset basically comes from if I am already going to spend the money to go to this show and it is for someone that I really like then why would I not want to be able to meet them. The other part of it too is it's someone that you really love and if the opportunity arises for you to meet someone, you never know when or if you will get to meet them again so why are you going to pass up that opportunity.

    As I have grown up, I have become that person who goes to most shows/concerts alone and I am completely okay with it because it is so much fun. Yes, it is awesome to go to concerts with friends and enjoy that time, but I also like to go to shows my way and most of the ones I want to go to most people wouldn't want to go to. But none of that matter because concerts are something that I love and if it is someone that I want to see, I am going to go.

    Everybody has their own guilty pleasure and mine is concerts. No matter what yours is whether is concerts or hiking or photography, people's opinion about what you like to do should not and does not matter. You should do what you like and it doesn't matter what people think about it. It's your hobby or guilty pleasure and what people think shouldn't matter. I used to worry about what people would think about me going to concerts by myself, but then I realized how stupid it was. First off, I am probably never going to see these people again. Secondly, if it is something I want to do, I am just going to do it and go to the show, no matter what people think about it.

    Concerts/ shows are something that are so interesting to go to because not only are you seeing the people that you love and enjoy, you also get a glimpse into who they are. There may be a set designer for these shows, but the show still comes from the person who you are going to see and that's when you get to see a part of who they are. Creating a show is just that creating something that you love and you want the people who follow you to love. That's why I truly love concerts because they are this small moment of a few hours where the artist and the fans truly get to come together for a special moment.
