Also, I’ve been in bed healing (caught something on my trip) and resting up from an amazing week last week with back to back trips to Philadelphia for a meeting, then to Orlando, FL for a conference where the BandingPeopleTogether.com team and I spoke to the amazing Bentley Mills leaders regarding performance improvement, collaboration and employee engagement, and finally ending my trip at the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE)’s Regional Discernment Retreat where I was honored to serve as Musician in Residence and share music with FTE leaders from all around the country.

I met so many special people and I can’t say enough about how awesome each experience was.  It truly showed me how surrender and trusting the divine / life / God / Source to lead and use you is a powerful and liberating way to live.

On that note, I was also recommended a wonderful book I read on my trip called “The Surrender Experiment” by Michael Singer. It’s an extremely encouraging and inspiring book that I highly recommend reading:

Also, many thanks to Rev. Ayana Pines and everyone who attended the last workshop we held in Atlanta, GA at the Shrine of the Black Madonna.  It was well received and I had a great time sharing teachings, music and spiritual practices that have helped me better align with the divine / source.

Share in the Abundance created by John’s music

Share in the Abundance created by John’s music

I’m excited to announce the new PolyPlat Records “Share in the Abundance” program I recently launched to support those who enjoy my debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light.”  As you may know, the music from “Limitless Love & Light” was designed to help you raise your consciousness,  align with the divine and clarify your purpose; while the “Share in the Abundance” program is designed to help you raise additional finances to support living that purpose.

Here’s more from the PolyPlat Records site:

“After helping independent artists for over a decade under Indiehitmaker.com (PolyPlat Records ADSD, LLC), former co-founder and partner, John Stringer, turned the reins of IHM over to co-founder, Bram Bessoff, so John could focus on his path in personal development and music. In doing so, John decided to follow his inspiration to turn the parent label, PolyPlat Records, into a platform where artists and fans could share in the abundance the artists’ music and services create.

As a result, the “Share in the Abundance” program was launched that allows anyone to invest in PolyPlat Records for a nominal fee ($22) and in exchange, earn a full 50% on all digital music sales and memberships generated from that partner’s affiliate link. In addition, Partners can earn 10% on all other referred sales for services like concerts, workshops, speaking engagements and even music sync licensing (for non-profit organizations).

Our first music offering is John Stringer’s debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light.” Partners can share this album and the other related services in the PolyPlat Records Shop by simply joining the “Share in the Abundance” program. Interested in Joining? Learn more here.

Whether you are a music lover who likes to share inspiring music, a faith-based organization or another non-profit committed to sharing more love and light, we invite you to join the “Share in the Abundance” program today .”  Click here for details.

With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.  For more, click here.

Second, I’ll be joining the amazing Victoria Canal for her debut EP release show for “In the Pull”  at Eddie’s Attic – Jan, 31st – 3PM.  The free ticketed show is SOLD OUT,  so only way you can get in is by arriving extremely early and hoping someone else doesn’t show.

How to heal emotionally +  “Accept it All” lyrics

How to heal emotionally + “Accept it All” lyrics

I’ve been going through some intense emotional healing. It’s been a journey over the last 12 years that has taught me to love myself in a way that is healing. I’ve learned to embrace emotions that have been stuffed away deep down inside. They get triggered when something happens and I interpret it as if it were similar to what happened in the past. When I felt the emotion and the pain in my body, I used to push it away. Now, I’ve learned to let the emotion arise without judgment and look deep into it to find “where have I felt this emotion before” in my past.

I go back and find all the different places in my life I’ve felt this emotion and I remember the instances as far back as I can.  I let the related thoughts arise and speak out what I’m remembering to help make the connection in my conscious mind.  These thoughts reflect hurts and questions of what I don’t understand – thoughts and questions behind the emotion.  I then ask for correcting guidance from the divine and let the divine / the spirit of love /God, or the holy spirit, speak to me and determine / discern the lesson I need to see. This is a correction in my perspective that allows me to feel relief, love and peace.   As I do this, I feel the heavy emotions release and energy of a higher vibration sooth my body, mind and soul.  There are typically tears involved, before the healing and after.

What’s interesting is I realized I learned to stuff those feelings away via well-meaning conditioning.  I’ve taught my children to do the same but I’m now teaching them how to navigate these emotions to allow them, bring forth the disconnect and invite correcting wisdom of the divine in to shift perspective. To break the blocks. To heal the wounds.

This process is part of what the song “Accept it All,” from my new album, “Limitless Light & Love,” is about. It’s a song that invites us to feel our emotions, feel whatever comes up – internal and external – in any moment… accepting it without judgment. Knowing that all is well. That sometimes we have to go through what feels like pain to birth a new way of being.

Our lives, our emotional systems.. everything is intelligently designed for our benefit. To help us shift into a place of uncertainty, fear, hurt and tension to relaxation, peace, knowing and bliss. To joy.

Here is the song, (featuring the amazing vocalist, Victoria Canal who is also releasing her debut EP at www.victoriacanal.com, and my dear friend, Ade Anefowose, on percusion)- and you can find the lyrics below:

(“Accept it All” lyrics):

“There’s a feeling we all want
Some times it seems impossible
but it’s truly what you came here for
Let me show you how to feel it more

A feeling once you learn to navigate
Accepting all you contemplate
Let go my friend and don’t resist
Relax and start to feel the bliss

It’s not hard when you choose differently
What you want ain’t always what you think so be here now
Accept it all and just Allow

Everything’s exactly how it should be
Suffering’s resisting what you don’t want to feel
Accept it all & be healed

Whatever comes up in your soul
Recognize it all and just let go
Release the labels, let it flow
Allow and know what you know

If your feelings, thoughts and stimuli
Are all a part of the divine
Then all is well and always is
Trust into that land feel the bliss

It’s not hard when you choose differently
What you want ain’t always what you think so be here now
Accept it all and just Allow

Everything’s exactly how it should be
Suffering’s resisting what you don’t want to feel
Accept it all & be healed

Before you were born, you chose this life
to remember you are love and light
understand that it’s all here for you
a plan to help you know the truth

The divine uses everything
to show you its love
Are you remembering
If there’s ONE thing that you can trust
its you can always count on love

There’s a feeling we all want
Some times it seems impossible
but it’s truly what you came here for
Let me show you how to feel it more

It’s not hard when you choose differently
What you want ain’t always what you think so be here now
Accept it all and just Allow

Everything’s exactly how it should be
Suffering’s resisting what you don’t want to feel
Accept it all & be healed”
