Hi There! Its Nice to Meet You!

The Tune Up Your Mind concept was conceived by Shivanii Ray and her father Beejel Parmar, and is based on Shivanii’s experience of performing movement on stage since age 3 with her godfather, singer-songwriter Karl Anthony, singing positive music since age 4, performing on stage aged 6, speaking on stage age 8 when she first emceed an event for 2500 people, writing positive music since age 9, releasing her first album age 15.

When Shivanii was 15 she opted not to go to regular school, instead, she was chosen as one of only 3 teens to become an intern for an experiential training company that taught business skills, speaking skills and mindset through experiential game based, immersive, functional themed training. It was during this 2-year experience she learned stage anchoring, which became the forerunner of a concept/theory Shivanii calls Neuro Lyrical Anchoring (NLA), using music & certain words to trigger a mental and emotional response and related to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Following  15-17, and a year of in-depth study into emotional intelligence, conscious connection, mindset, relationships, & personality.

And despite all my experience, at that moment, my humanness, my emotions took over.

The Science of NLA

Neuro Lyrical Anchoring is the process in which you can change your state of mind or mood easily using the techniques of anchoring with and through the power of music and lyrics.


Music can have a very powerful influence on our emotions, moods and behaviour. This has been recognised through the ages. Historically, it has been used for such varied purposes as singing babies to sleep, enhancing the courtship process and accompanying rites of passage through life.

Music has the power to drag you on a roller coaster of feelings Happiness, Sadness, Nostalgia, Pumped, and every emotion in between. That’s the power of music, it can take you to any state of being.    

Like when your favourite song comes on the radio you immediately get the feeling of energy, being pumped etc.. but if a sad song pops up you may likely feel drawn down. With that in mind..

…Neuro Lyrical Anchoring uses the power of music, movement and anchoring to drive positive mindset and new beliefs that have a impactful uplifting purpose to move you towards living a life with positive beliefs and mindsets.  

Anchoring in neuro-linguistic programming is a term used for the process by which you apply a gesture, touch or sound at the peak of a state, either in oneself or someone else. The said anchored state can then be recalled or re-activated by reapplying the gesture, touch or sound.

Using similar techniques learnt from practices from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programing) we anchoring a feeling/mindset/belief using music and lyrics that change your mindset to better you and your thought processes.
