Music and Spirit – Interview on Xtreme Music
Music and Spirit – the two go together like hand in glove. I wouldn’t even think about writing a melody or a lyric to a song without first tapping into that infinite wellspring of Spirit. It’s funny because when I first started writing songs in my angst-filled teenage years, I wrote about unrequited love, and all the heartbreak that love can bring. It wasn’t until I discovered my own Spirituality and started on this path, that I realized how powerful writing and singing positive life affirming messages could be, not only for my audience, but especially for me! When I sing and just allow the music to overtake me, my every-chattering mind can be put on hold and my heart can open. That’s when the bliss can move in. The chants and songs I write are all about seeing the good, affirming positive outcomes, radiant health – anything that affirms my highest good. When I open to and sing about the abundance and oneness of Spirit – all is well, and there is abundance in all forms. It’s like there is this giant stream rushing to the ocean and all we have to do is get in and literally go with the flow. That is what I do when I write songs – I just jump into that flow and let Spirit take over, surrender to the process and try to get myself out of the way.
