So much good, so much love, so much abundance

So much good, so much love, so much abundance

I’m so grateful for all the good that is showing up in our lives. Granted, you can find talk of all the so called “bad,” but what I’m learning is what you choose to see is what you will see.  I choose to see love, I choose to see the divine, I choose to see with the eyes of God / source, through my Father’s blessings and vision he has blessed us with.

I’m grateful to share these gifts through music, teachings and whatever other ways I’m lead and if you are so lead, I invite you to find your connection to this divine love. Let it guide and lead you to where you need to be. Let it help you see through the eyes of love versus anger, judgment and separation.

I give thanks to the spirit the Father has sent us for the ability it gives us to align with that which is here now – limitless love and light – that which we are!

If you’d like to shift your perspective and take on the natural perspective of the divine, I invite you to join The Abundance Vibration Course and explore all the free practices it shares.  You can find out more here or by clicking the banner below.

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:

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”

Pick up the album, “Limitless Love & Light,” here.

The love that we all seek is already here

The love that we all seek is already here

It has been some time since I’ve shared teachings I receive and I’m honored to share this message of love and light with you today.

The love that we all seek is already here. We are simply getting clear enough to see it. We are simply letting go of conditioned thinking skewed perception that has convinced us we are limited in some way, that we are less than perfect, that we are somehow flawed and unable to be what we came to be. this is the undoing that needs to occur in order to let go of the suffering in order to experience the bliss that is already here for you your birthright. Saying yes to your birthright saying yes to the life you came to live is the beginning of realizing who you are. Remembering who you are Saying yes to the divine , to love to god, to spirit to the all powerful, all knowing universal source is the very beginning of expanding your awareness beyond the limited , skewed perception you have been entangled in. Yes.

Enjoy this song from my new solo album, “Limitless Love & Light,” to go with the message above:

Check out “Power of Love and #blacklivesmatter” & “We Matter

Check out “Power of Love and #blacklivesmatter” & “We Matter

Did you notice any divisiveness around the use of the hashtag #blacklivesmatter not too long ago?  Perhaps that conversation is still going on.  Either way, you may appreciate the two new tracks below from my forthcoming album, “Limitless Love & Light,” that touch on it in a way I feel is loving (NOTE: play “Power of Love and #blacklivesmatter” and then “We Matter” to hear the two new songs below):

This is the first time the album versions have been released to the public for listening and the advanced CD release party on Oct. 11th in Atlanta will be your first chance to get a physical copy of the full album  (NOTE: online tickets are cheaper and selling daily, so be sure to get your tickets NOW at http://bit.ly/jstix ).

So, I completely understand people’s reactions like “All Lives Matter” when seeing the #blacklivesmatter hashtag –  I used to respond the same way.  However, I love what my friend Margaret Fuller commented when I first shared the spoken word text on Facebook:

 “It took me a while to realize it, but by saying#blacklivesmatter, we ARE saying #alllivesmatter.

Whew! Folks, my first solo CD, “Limitless Love & Light,” is finally complete!  Super producer, Rick Beato, helped complete production, mixing and mastering in record time and Ken Lanyon finished mastering the CD yesterday, so the project is now off to Disc Makers for manufacturing.

Here is a sneak peek of one of the tracks – “You Are Welcome Here,” a song I wrote about unity at the request of Penelope Williams, Creative Arts Director at Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta:

I think of “You Are Welcome Here” as a song for anyone seeking to welcome love, peace and unity in their world and I’ve adopted it as a the theme song for my online community (which you can join here).

I gotta tell you… there are so many songs I’m itching to share with you from the CD. I’m like a little kid who unwrapped his Christmas gifts, so I can’t thank you all enough for supporting the Kickstarter to help make this happen!

We’ll get the physical copies just in time for the Advanced CD Release Party in Atlanta on Sunday, 10/11 (6 PM) at Trinity Center for Spiritual Living where I’ll be joined by several dear friends on stage.  If you haven’t picked up tickets / VIP packages yet, or just want more details, get them right here.
