Do you have a go-to Soul Songs playlist?
The Spiritual Journey of the Soul can be a little wobbly sometimes huh. I really love music and can happily spend hours listening, sourcing new artists to buy for my playlists and being by myself, soaking up the vibes. For me, music just makes things better, comforts the Soul, soothes those fragile and what-am-I-doing-with-my-life days. Do you agree?
My family and neighbours will tell you that I love to play a song, often loud and on repeat, over and over again. Yep…this is true. Or sometimes I just play them with earplugs in my mumcave.
Music helps me move the stuck energy, sometimes allowing for tears, or the rise of anger that has been suppressed and it helps me to shift it from my body as I feel and release. Too often on those not so happy, fragile feeling, emotional days a good go-to Soul Song playlist is a powerful form of healing medicine.
Let’s face it, we all have chapters in our life where we feel a bit lost, stuck, confused, perhaps in physical or emotional pain and music is like a trusted friend, our reliable Soul mate. Sure, music is awesome for super creative days when we are motivated, on fire, flying, soaring and making things happen too. I have a playlist for those times as well – I am a playlist kinda girl.
But I wanted to share a few special songs that mean a lot to me for various reasons. It may not even be the lyrics or title of the songs, merely the energy or vibe of the song, or the energetic connection to an event or time in my life, that these songs supported, moved, inspired and helped me get through.

Earthbeings you worry so much, and we feel sad when we see you worry about so many things. You often misunderstand the chaos of matters in your life and forget the calm that will follow. ALL that is unfolding for you is preparation for the next chapter.
Are you looking for simple, affordable tools to clear and maintain your home or office space. Saging is a great choice. It allows for the releasing of old, stuck or blocked energy hanging around, opening up this freshly cleared space for new to enter.
Place your left hand on your heart and close your eyes. Focus on the power of your breath just for a few minutes, and listen to the beat of your own heart. Ahh…that feels so great doesn’t it. Compassion is within you and it is rising.
