How is your EQ? All audio engineers will tell you that you are generally working with a 31 band EQ when adjusting the frequencies of either individual instruments or the entire mix of instruments. They will also tell you that if anyone of those frequencies is off, it can jack with the entire sound of an instrument and/or a band.
Carrying this over, if you are dealing with some emotional imbalance, or said another way, your emotional frequency is off, it can and will affect your entire life.
Here’s the other thing, if a frequency is off in an audio mix, the audience won’t know what exactly is wrong, they will just know that they don’t like it. The same goes for your life. If you have something off, many won’t know what it is, but they will sense that something is off and won’t like it.

Believe me, I get. This was a large part of my music career. I just felt if I could do a good enough job selling my group and talk to enough people, I could force my band into success. But, we don't know what we don't know, right? It wasn't until I started studying other bands that were getting all the gigs that things began to clear up for me. On top of that, I became an entertainment agent buying bands for a few shopping centers. These shopping centers would redirect all their entertainment inquiries right to me. And there were hundreds calling me. Now I was on the other end of this hearing every good, bad and ugly pitch out there. Here's the interesting part.
