08 Pic draftTo help support the campaign and keep me focused in gratitude I have been having so much fun sharing pictures from my life that help tell the story of me and all that has helped inspired 12 Rebirth.

Today is Day 8 and it was 8 years ago that I was living in Cairo Egypt. kind of cool alignment.

This picture is from a hut I lived in for about 4 days in Nuweiba, a spot that sits right on the Aqaba Sea and looks across at Jordan. It was an extraordinary time in which I connected with nature and myself. I will never forget it.

Thanks for tuning in and for supporting the campaign. Remember, it’s not just about my music but about building the foundation for Queen City Records, a company and platform that will help educate and empower women in the fields audio and techionology.

It’s a full moon in Virgo today and I could not be more grateful for all that is unfolding. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

img_8065 2Good morning. It’s MLK day and I am grateful to be basking in the afterglow of that extraordinary full moon lunar eclipse last night. And for those in the New England area, the patriots won and I hear it was quite a game.

I went to bed early, so I missed both the end of the game and the eclipse in real time. I did see Melissa Etheridge sing the national anthem before the game, which I found kind of odd. I also noticed how incredibly cold it was. Well done Melissa. it’s no fun singing when it’s that cold.

Today, I wanted to invite you to be still. Even in our action, we can be still. Take a moment today to listen to your favorite piece of music or take a moment to walk outside, despite the cold temperatures. Take a moment to breath and reflect on who you are and how much you have come through to be right here, right now. Meditate on the words of Dr. MLK, Jr.

It is an extraordinary time to be a human and if you are hearing a call to serve and play and explore more of who you are, trust that is it REAL. This call is for ALL OF US.

If you need help moving through this time or guidance as more and more awakens for you, please reach out. There are so many teachers and healers and guides that are here to serve you. If you don’t want to reach out to me through Sounding Still Wellness, check out Vivienne Gerard or Derek O’Neill.

May All Beings in All the Worlds Be Free and may the energy of this song I wrote over 2 years ago, “Freedom is an Inside Job” awaken in all of us and all of Humanity.

What an extraordinary year it has been. As a great author once said,

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” – The Tale of Two Cities

The tale of two cities, indeed. Which city are you living in? Do you know you can choose, in any moment?

I have learned this lesson over and over again and I am grateful to still be here – ALIVE and THRIVING towards that which I know I am: Love, Sound, Joy – here to serve myself and anyone who chooses to listen. May your true voice arise within you and may you share it with love, power, grace and the wisdom that YOU are incredibly powerful and the world needs YOUR voice RIGHT NOW.

Please join me over for some events over the next couple weeks. TONIGHT for winter solstice. JAN. 5 for the new moon and JUNE 21-23 for an extraordinary experience at Creacon in Ireland.

be still. love yourself. love everyone else. sometimes it really is that simple. And when in doubt, CHANT!

IMG_5240Wow. Another full moon in August has come and gone. I don’t know about you but this past weekend on Cape Cod was just perfect. Full Moon. Hot Sun. Cool air. Beach time. Live music. Family and Friends. As Mark Erelli writes in his song August, “A fool would ask for more” (ps. check out his new upcoming release Milltowns on Sept. 9)

This time last summer I can’t say I felt as good as I do now. In fact, I had just finished 30 days of antibiotics for Lyme Disease and was not feeling very inspired in general. Isn’t it amazing how our lives go through cycles. The longer I live and practice spiritual teachings I have received, the more I allow this to happen with ease and grace.

Want to open yourself to some of these teachings, not to mention connection, community, fun, and BLISS? JOIN US this weekend at Love Yoga Fest. I will be opening the day on Saturday at 7am with a chanting of the Gayatri Mantra, among other chants and then signing again on the Main Stage at 5:00pm. I will also be at a healing table with Kristen O’toole offering the Prema Agni & Rising Star Energy Healings Systems. This energy was taught to us by Derek O’Neill, who will be in Boston on Nov. 9. Stop by, learn more, and FEEL THE LOVE.

LYF-LOGO-1This weekend, right in Aselton Park Hyannis yoga teachers from all over the Cape and New England will be offering their joy, wisdom, experience, and fun for you to play, frolic, explore, and awaken. What a gift to Cape Cod!! I remember just a couple years ago we were doing yoga on the Green and now here we are!! Thank you Love Live Local Ladies and Annika for birthing this dream I had imagined way back then. May All Beings in All the Worlds be Happy and may CAPE COD lead the way.

Om Nimah Shivaya!

This Full moon in July is called Guru Purnima and in the Hindu faith it is considered an auspicious day of honoring the guru – or great sage and teacher. Many of you know I consider Derek O’Neil a great sage and teacher of mine. He will be in Boston on Nov. 9 and I encourage anyone interested to come. It’s a lot cheaper then getting all the way to Ireland and it will be a wonderful day!

I have had many teachers in my life. My first and perhaps most deeply felt one was my mom. For many of us, this is true. Wether we feel our relationship with her was wonderful, horrible or somewhere in between, this initial relationship is one of our greatest teachers.

Next comes Dad.  I have been reflecting recently on some of my favorite (and humorous) things I have learned from my Dad. Here are the top 10 (according to me)

me dad and dennis
Me & Dad & Dennis (my big bro)

10. Ritz crackers and cheese can be a meal

9. Really, it’s not that windy, we can make it to the next port

8. Fixing stuff, no matter how broken, is much preferred to buying something new

7. Kids are far more resilient than adults think

6. Laughing at yourself, life, and everything else is a really good idea

5. Music is awesome and you should play it loudly in your house all the time and go see it live

4. Movies are also amazing and you should seek out independent and interesting films. They feed you.

3. Even when you feel you are at your worst, you are still probably better than most

2. 95% of life is showing up

1. Keep one hand for yourself and one hand for the boat

Thank you to all my teachers, especially my Dad. You can learn more about him at HIS BLOG

AND SATURDAY FULL MOON
Cape Cod Chat House 7-9

As some of you may know Jayajagatambe is a big hit with children. I am not sure what it is, but all the kids love this track. And I don’t know about you, but I trust kids. you can’t fake it with kids. If they are not feeling the music, that’s usually a sign the music doesn’t have it. You can LISTEN to Jayajagatambe anytime you want on Reverbnation and why not become a fan?  Come to the Chat House on Saturday night and hear one of my guitar students help me play JAYJAGATAMBE. I am super excited for him and super excited for me. I will also be playing lots of good tunes to kick off ths summer right for all of Cape Cod! May we all be peaceful, happy, and prosperous!
