Embrace…..Song Lyrics

Standard

embrace-creativity

I woke up the other morning with this song I’d written in my mind.  I wrote it in the early 90’s, after we’d declared war on Iraq, the first time, and after just coming home from my hero’s concert, Bruce Cockburn.  One of my clients was the head of the Rape crisis program at the time and had shared with me that the US Department of Health and Human Services had traveled around the country doing research and found that more women and children died every year than had died in total in the Vietnam war.  I was living in No. CA, and the battle between loggers and environmentalists was huge, with the loggers blaming the environmentalists for lack of jobs when really, the lack was due to old growth being cut down so less and less forest to harvest, logs being shipped to Japan for milling, so again less work, plus, all the automation which further reduced jobs. But the timber industry did a great job of blaming green initiatives and environmentalist for all of it, stirring up trouble and deflecting the blame themselves.

Sadly, the words to this song and the conditions still exist.  This is all what I have fought to heal on this planet all my lifetimes.  And I say…it is time for change NOW!!!!

So here’s the song:
Verse 1

We fought a war in Iraq
I say let’s bring our people back
There’s a war going on, on our shore
It’s a war against children and the poor
Come back, come back

Chorus:

We got to get back to the truth and light
Release the war and the fight
Let’s save the love in the human race
Embrace, Embrace
Embrace, Embrace
Verse 2:

Power and greed fans the flame,
Corporate image creates the game
So jobs remain in munitions factories
Technology advances, politicians are pleased
Come back, come back

Chorus:

Verse 3:

The earth cries out her pain and woe
Species are dying, rivers run low
Timber bosses lobby for the old growth
As chain saws, bulldozers, loggers march forth
Come back, come back

Chorus then bridge then chorus

Healing Our Hearts

Standard

heart_cloud_2

For months since last Nov. I have been playing an album, called “Relaxation for the holidays” a gift that came with an order from the Gaim website.  The cello in many of the pieces filled my heart, softened my existence, and helped maintain peace. I kept it cued up in my car.  It was the only music I listened to in my car all these months.

Then, a few weeks ago, I was guided to look through the small collection of channeled CD’s  I keep next to my driver’s seat, and ran across Tom Kenyon’s Heart Chakra meditation piece.  On his website he states that it is helpful for emotional healing and to assist in integrating those shadow sides of ourselves we perhaps have judged or not owned up until now. The song piece is designed to be a meditation but I have been using it in my car for a few weeks, and it is just what my heart wanted now.

As we get closer and closer to the upcoming dark surrender and shift to the light, along with all the powerful energy infusions pouring into us and earth….not to mention all the transformation we are undergoing now, our hearts are going through massive healing as well as opening, with many downloads pushing us to reclaim our larger selves.

So I was led to post this blog post, to introduce you to Tom Kenyon, a world renown Sound healer, among many other things. Before you listen to or download his free Hathor Heart Chakra  Healing Sound meditation, please visit this page first, scroll down and click on the link for the listening agreement  http://tomkenyon.com/listening  This will lead you to a page with several various meditations you can listen to and/or download. I am recommending the Hathor Heart Chakra Healing Meditation. Tom recommends that you DON’T listen to this while needing to stay alert.  I’m a very wired person so these kinds of things just keep me tuned and don’t move me out of alertness or awareness, so I do listen while driving.  I recommend that you listen at home first and use the instructions as he lists them.

Time for some peace and soothing these days……enjoy!!!

I’m so ready for the upcoming shift and have grown weary in the waiting. It is coming folks, get ready!!!!

VAN MORRISON LYRICS
“Dweller On The Threshold”

I’m a dweller on the threshold
And I’m waiting at the door
And I’m standing in the darkness
I don’t want to wait no more

I have seen without perceiving
I have been another man
Let me pierce the realm of glamor
So I know just what I am

I’m a dweller on the threshold
And I’m waiting at the door
And I’m standing in the darkness
I don’t want to wait no more

Feel the angel of the presence
In the mighty crystal fire
Lift me up consume my darkness
Let me travel even higher

I’m a dweller on the threshold
As I cross the burning ground
Let me go down to the water
Watch the great illusion drown

I’m a dweller on the threshold
And I’m waiting at the door
And I’m standing in the darkness
I don’t want to wait no more

I’m gonna turn and face the music
The music of the spheres
Lift me up consume my darkness
When the midnight disappears

I will walk out of the darkness
And I’ll walk into the light
And I’ll sing the song of ages
And the dawn will end the night

I’m a dweller on the threshold
And I’m waiting at the door
And I’m standing in the darkness
I don’t want to wait no more

I’m a dweller on the threshold
And I cross some burning ground
And I’ll go down to the water
Let the great illusion drown

I’m a dweller on the threshold
And I’m waiting at the door
And I’m standing in the darkness
I don’t want to wait no more

I’m a dweller on the threshold
Dweller on the threshold
I’m a dweller on the threshold
I’m a dweller on the threshold

John Denver Looking for Space – YouTube.

I love this song and hadn’t heard it before. It seems to describe my path of my life, since early childhood. I saw so much beauty around me in the desert and mountains but also in my memories of past lives, the other dimensions I walked into, the music that filled my dreams all night, and the spirits I communicated with and yet I was told only the mountains and deserts were real.

I looked around me at the jealousy, dysfunction, and pain that wove itself throughout the good parts of my family, extended family and town, and wondered why we would choose to live this way. From early on I went looking for answers, leaving my parent’s church at age 8, traveling through other churches in town, and other spiritual paths from there. I spent years focusing on personal growth and healing and still do.

This focus became my path and my life, looking for truth, and yet also looking for my place in it. I’ve never felt particularly at home anywhere, except for the Navajo land where I briefly lived in the early 80’s. The community wasn’t welcoming but I remembered the land from other times. Otherwise I have mostly felt like a stranger in a strange land, trying to get back to or forward to that land, that home, the place within and without that I briefly was cocooned in during my early childhood moments.

Those moments were suspended a midst severe asthma attacks and hospital stays, family strife, and school yard rejection, but they were my heaven and it was real. And I know it will be real again and that it is THAT, that I have been attempting to help others find through my work with individuals and it is my work to share it with the world.

I truly believe that place of living in our truth, living in love, and living in our power as creators is where we are headed. We are on the cusp of stepping into the light, our light, the light of Spirit, the light of this world, releasing all the darkness so we all can shine.

All The Diamonds- Bruce at the Barrymore 5-21-2011 – YouTube.

I got introduced to Bruce in 1976 by my guitar teacher. He has been my hero, and inspiration ever since then. I own 29 or so albums of his. I grew up a severe asthmatic, in and out of hospitals and emergency rooms, and died a couple times. I never knew if I’d be alive the next day. At times I would struggle to breathe for several days at a time, sitting up, leaning against a wall. As you can imagine, it could get quite scary. Finally, I decided to put on Bruce music, and I’d close my eyes, picturing myself sitting across from him, playing my guitar and singing along with him. I was still having a hard time breathing but the visualization along with the music helped me to be more peaceful, surrender, and allow my body to heal again. Bruce became my lifesaver!

I am grateful that I no longer have attacks like that, but Bruce’s music remains my go to music for bringing myself back to center and to a place of peace.

Searching For Sugar Man Trailer – YouTube.

I just saw this wonderful documentary last night and it was exactly what I needed to see. It was a new moon yesterday and I was all stirred up; a cocktail of trust, empowerment, fear, anger and frustration. I had taken all of that into the most powerful New Moon ceremony I’ve ever had and commanded forth what I truly desire for myself and humanity.

Then I walked in to view this amazing story of a man who had a gift that wasn’t truly recognized in his home country. He did find some interest from New Zealand and Australia, but mostly he just lived a blue collar financially struggling life as a hard laborer. Then, he found out that he had a huge fan base in South Africa, that he had inspired many and was able finally to step into that recognition and honor that he so deserved, and in a way, he was welcomed home.

I feel that all of us are searching for the place of home, ready to be seen for who we truly are, and honored for that by family and friends if not more people, not out of ego but out of a sense of needing to be seen for the light we bring to the world.

Whether we are artists, musicians, a Mom, a Dad, a sister, a brother, a CEO, a laborer, or whatever, we all have special gifts to share with others. It might be our smile, our patience, our ability to listen, etc.

When I do past life regression with people, when they are viewing a lifetime, I ask them to see what their gifts and talents were in that lifetime. It might be that they were kind, knew how to bake, knew about herbs, loved their family, not just things like playing an instrument, being a leader…..And I remind them of all these gifts before I bring them back into conception into this body and life.

What are the gifts you share with others and bring to the world? Please take a moment to meditate on this and make a list. You can look at this list when you forget how wonderful you are and how much you bring to this planet. Like Sixto Rodriguez discovers, often we are influencing people and touching their lies in ways we can’t even imagine

Thanks for being you! And…go see this film!!!

Love to you, Katelon

PS..my ceremony already grew fruits and today I had an amazing harvest. So can you!

Another song by Me!

Standard

The name of this song is “Wings of Heaven“.  I wrote it in 1979 for my Mom. My Dad had recently left her and she was still reeling from it. I recorded this in Nov. 1990 when my son requested that I make a tape of all the songs he grew up hearing me play. He was at college and missed me. So, I recorded two 90 min. tapes of me singing and playing these songs.

Song by Me!

Standard

The name of this song is “Roots in the Sky” and I wrote it. This was a simple recording of me singing and playing my guitar, recorded in Nov. 1990. I first wrote this as a poem and sent it to then President Reagan and various congressmen, for Christmas 1986, asking them to quit funding the contras and the illegal war against Nicaragua. I later “got” the music in 1988 as I sat in the yoga studio in Arcata, CA, waiting for the children to arrive for the creative music and movement class I was teaching. I was just warming up and the music came through.

Bruce Cockburn, Justice, 9/11 Moments

Standard

Here is my MAIN guitar/singer-songwriter hero!!!! I have been listening to Bruce since 1982. When I used to have extreme asthma and struggle to breathe for days, I would make it through that time listening to Bruce, leaning against a wall because I couldn’t lay down, and picture myself playing guitar and singing with Bruce. I have 28 or more albums of his. His passion for spirituality, music and being an activist around the world has been my inspiration for all these years. Yay Bruce!!!!!!!
