Music That Saves Me

Surrender

October 29, 2010

Friday. Music That Saves Me.

Wednesday this week, goddess Lauren Hill came through Pandora’s musical umbilical cord and dropped into my heart along side thoughts of a very brave friend facing cancer. I heard the words and thought about romantical love. But that’s not exactly where my head was…

I was thinking about Love in general. The feeling of Love, in any shape, on any level. Thinking, after knowing Love, nothing really matters at all.

These days, I find myself relaxing gently, more and more, into this surrender. Reading about my friend’s journey, thinking about the Love & Light that each of us are and will continue to be… even after, nothing even matters. Love remains.

Closer To My Dreams

October 22, 2010

This Friday, I’m in touch with deep feelings of gratitude and thanks. Seriously. I’m not just saying that ‘cuz I’m a coach and optimystical.

Gratitude for a 7 week old kitten. That just mysteriously “landed” in my universe Monday, October 11th. Mewing from under a car, where I crawled and maneuvered so I could catch him and pull him out of a wheel-well. So so scared. Heart beating fast. I remember hearing his cries for mom beginning around 4 am that morning and wondering “who’s kitty has been left outside?”

No Regrets, Forest Sun

October 15, 2010

This week flew by in a blurred whoosh. I heard a few songs that captivated me. I stopped, thought and relished.

But the truth is, this song hooked me about 3 or 4 weeks ago when I first heard it on Pandora. At the time, I was reflecting about the past, about a relationship, about the various relationships I’ve had with myself.  And of course, others in my life who’ve touched me in special ways and… thinking about how the relationship itself didn’t exactly turn out the way I’d planned or hoped.

Pretty Wings

October 8, 2010

Music is such an important part of my life.

It soothes my heart when I feel broken. It inspires me. I feel strengthened and fortified somehow by music. Mostly, music articulates in a way that only music can. And I love that about it. That a song can completely captivate me… grab my heart and stop whatever else is happening.  Lyrics, rhythms, melodies and their artists. I am head over heels.

It’s Friday. And it feels like a good time to share how music moved me this week. How it showed up. What the song told me. Who I thought about while I listened. Just really anything I want to share about why this song and why now.

On my walk yesterday, this song came on Pandora on my Droid. And I listened like it was brand new, even though the song is from 2006.

In one of the various movies that often frequent my headspace, I saw a wiser, older version of myself. She was singing to the me in this now, here with you.

The words caught me first. Especially the one’s about fear.

But when I came across this beautiful homespun video, the imagery of children at play and the “i love you’s,”  I was moved to share it with you.

I’m Pregnant

June 29, 2010

We all are. In the process of giving birth. Have you felt it?

Each of us being individually activated. Living out our own personal dramas.

A Summer solstice, eclipses, the cardinal grand cross.

I personally have been experiencing my own resistance. Getting in my own way.

I know I’m doing it. I know what to do about it. But I choose to sit and stew.

Last week, I did hardly anything (that I thought I should be doing anyway). I spent a lot of time with Hulu and Netflix. Trying to escape the incessant voices in my head telling me how much work I had to do and reminding me there are people waiting for me.
