Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday.

How about BE HUMAN everyday? Or BE KIND anyway? Or SING SING away the day.

Or my favorite….NEW MOON MONDAY (It is in fact a new moon today) – Let’s plant seeds of happy happy!

I must admit the whole shopping focus over this transition from thanksgiving to Christmas can get a little old and yet here I am another small business owner and independent musician who has services and music to offer. So, a hope you will receive this post in love, as I let you know that you can buy my CD’s right now at a discounted holiday price. Thank you for your support.

And on this new moon – a wonderful and powerful time for your own intentions – I wish you ease, grave, passion, motivation, spontaneous joy, giggles, rest, more passion, and anything else you can dream! And join me on Saturday Dec. 21 for my annual Solstice concert and love fest.

And if you missed it here is a little YOUTUBE THANK YOU LOVE I posted last week – a song from my Winds of Sinai Album.Image

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!

Well It’s April 8 and it finally feels warm. sometime last week I had a little impromptu lunch break a local beach in Dennis called Mayflower. What a gorgeous day it was. chilly, but GORGEOUS. Great time to listen to Isn’t It Amazing?

This past Thursday and Friday night I was up in Boston first at Club Passim to see Lori McKenna share her new album Massachusetts produced by Mark Erelli. It was the most rocking folk show I ever saw at Passim and I think Mark played 7 instruments. So inspiring and the album is awesome!

Isn’t it amazing what can happen in a year?
AMathewsonCD_W138_print.inddThis time last year I was in full on production mode working to get my CD 2012: Isn’t it Amazing? done in time for all the parties. March 22, 2012 was such a special night for me and all that attended. It was my intention to use that event at the Cape Cod Chat House (as well as events in NY and LA) to not only launch the new CD and celebrate but also to help birth a new vibration of love, peace, truth, right-conduct, & non-violence in myself and for all.

THANK YOU to all of you who have bought the CD, gave it away, and bought more. I have heard so many stories of people using the CD in powerful ways. If you have not yet shared your story or are willing to share it again, please do by commenting below.2012-04-13_19-44-16_498

I have now sung “May I be at Peace” in many different settings: yoga classes, coffeehouses, healing centers, school gyms, churches, next to the bed of a passing soul, at Creacon Lodge in Ireland, and for women retreats on both coasts. What a gift to be doing what I love with such generous listeners.

And I can’t wait to sing it for Yoga Reaches Out in April at Gilette Stadium and at the Wanderlust Festival in VT singing both times with Jill Abraham from Power Yoga of Cape Cod.

To celebrate this one year mark, I have lots of March happenings. Please come out and raise a glass or a voice to honor a truly AMAZING year. And if you know someone who might enjoy the CD, why not buy another copy or download it and spread the love.
amazing-66THANK YOU again for your support and love. Because of you, the songs keep expanding!!

May All Beings in All the Worlds Be Happy!!

Alicia at winebar 2013

So here we are. the first new moon of 2013.  It’s been an interesting ride hasn’t it? Dec 21, 2012 came and went and here we are. life is just about the same – or is it?

In 2013, I will be blogging consitently on the new and full moon. why? because I LOVE the moon and LOVE the cycles it has and what it teaches me about my own cycles. We are human – a part of nature – and we have cycles.

new moon

On Dec. 21, 2012 a 26,000 year old cycle ended and a new one began. This is a scientific fact, not a woo hoo spiritual prophecy. If you believe in science, you must acknowledge how much has changed for Humanity and our planet over the past 30 years and that we (whether we like or not), must change along with it.

Change: this is often a hard thing for us humans. In the Buddhist tradition, we are taught, NOTHING IS PERMANENT. Try telling that to this lingering cough I have had for almost 5 weeks. YES, perhaps like you, I have been navigating life while also having a cold. It has reminded me to rest, go slow, be kind to myself and others and TRUST, that no matter how I feel – physically or emotionally that too will pass. Thank you lingering cough for enlightening me (once again!)

If you are going through changes, experiencing loss, confusion (a lingering cough), or just find yourself feeling like you could use something new, please consider calling upon me through Sounding Still Wellness at our new location right in Barnstable Village. A Rising Star Healing Session, Voice lesson, or Meditation Class could be just what the Doctor ordered.

And as always, I hope to see you at Chat House on the Cape or in some yoga studio for some live musical love.  Happy Happy new moon! Create Love. Enjoy this song I recently posted on youtube.
