Attracting Mindi Abair

by Joe Vitale on November 19, 2014

In my quest to quickly learn how to play the saxophone, I sought out great players to listen to, model, and study.

It didn’t take long to discover sexy sax superstar Mindi Abair.

Mindi Abir and me

Mindi Abair and me

Her latest album, Wild Heart, is already topping the Billboard charts. She’s been on American Idol for two seasons. She toured with Aerosmith. She’s been on Letterman. She played with Bruce Springsteen. She’s breaking through to even wider mainstream public awareness. Her blend of rock and jazz is just the right combo to excite and inspire me.

I had a sax lesson with her via Skype that helped me with numerous sax playing issues. That was a turning point in my playing. As a result, I’ve already played sax on several albums, from Invoking Divinity and Afflatus, to a forthcoming album with twice Grammy nominated singer Ruthie Foster and my music producer Daniel Barrett.

And then I hired Mindi to perform a private acoustic concert for friends.

That’s where I became even more enthralled and inspired.

Mindi is open, generous, loving and lovable.

She spent time with each of my friends. She showed me her sax (Yamaha Custom Z alto) and answered more of my questions about playing.

And her playing stunned me.

She’s smooth, hot, sultry, jazzy, rocking, screaming, soothing, and more.

When I grow up, I want to play like her.

She put thought into which songs to play for me and my friends.

She considered my interest in positive thinking and played her song “I Can’t Lose” (off the Wild Heart album).

She heard that one of my guests loved the song “Summertime” and played her powerful version of it.

And she told stories.

Each song was introduced with a charming behind the scenes story.

It made the show intimate and unique and unforgettable.

Her guitar player was just as warm and talented.

Randy Jacobs played for Ringo and Willie and a long list of greats. He was as humble and friendly as Mindi. (And he was very impressed that drummer Joe Vitale, the “other” Joe Vitale who is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, recorded several albums with me.)

PS – Mindi Abair was kind about my sax playing, too. She called me (in a Tweet) a “killer saxophonist”! Thank you, Mindi! :)

Limits? What Limits?

November 14, 2014

People usually marvel at the speed at which I get things done -

Fifty books in a few decades.
Ten albums in three years.
Thirteen movies in seven years.

I personally don’t think it’s such a big deal. It’s simply what I do.
But I’ve noticed that when people get close to me, they also begin to get things done [...]

Bread-Free Bread

November 8, 2014

My wife Nerissa couldn’t get me to eat my vegetables so she did something creative: she disguised them as breads.
That did the trick.
I ate pizza with “bread” made out of spinach.
I ate burgers with “bread” made out of kale.
I ate desserts made out of beans.
I never knew it was just vegetables or seeds.
I never knew [...]

The Saxman Joe Miracle

November 1, 2014

You can achieve great things when someone believes in you.
I know this first hand.
Daniel Barret, my music producer, coauthor of The Remembering Process, and friend, urged me to create an album of all saxophone music before I felt ready to do so.
I even argued with him about it.
“You have a two year old son,” I [...]

Belief Clearing Secret

October 18, 2014

Whenever I’m asked what methods I personally use to clear myself of limiting beliefs, I always say three things –
1. Ho’oponopono. This simple prayer, described in the books At Zero and Zero Limits, is what I do daily (even right now, as I’m writing this).
2. Tapping. Whether you call it EFT or TFT or something [...]

Prosperity Shock Treatment

October 1, 2014

In the October, 1927 issue of Nautilus magazine, prolific Law of Attraction author Brown Landone revealed a way to give yourself a “shock treatment” to attract more money.
I’m a huge fan of Landone. He wrote more than 100 books, including The Success Process, before his death in 1945. I was deeply interested in this article [...]

LOA BS

September 28, 2014

Someone on Facebook wrote a variation of this statement…
“Napoleon Hill said, ‘Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.’ This is the biggest load of monkey poo since the Law of Attraction. Right now, I am conceiving and believing that I can walk on water. Wish me luck.”
This is a wonderful [...]

The Same Question

September 25, 2014

People have been asking the same question about the Law of Attraction since it made its public appearance in the mid 1800’s:
“Why doesn’t this stuff work for me?”
In 1926, William E. Towne addressed it in an editorial for his magazine, Nautilus:
“Many New Thought people fail to succeed in their undertaking because they expect the reading [...]

Angel Help

September 20, 2014

“Joe, did you make a deal with the devil?”
“Excuse me?”
“I heard you just recorded a track of saxophone music with Mathew Dixon and then you went and played sax on an album with Ruthie Foster and Daniel Barrett but you’ve only been playing the sax a few months.”
“And that means I made a deal with [...]

Where is God?

September 8, 2014

“Do you believe in God?”
I would get that question after people read my book, The Attractor Factor, or read (or saw the movie) The Secret.
They somehow assumed that the Law of Attraction replaced God.
They somehow assumed that people who practice the Law of Attraction are playing God.
That confused me.
“God gave you the Law of Attraction,” [...]
