BJORK : MY NEW POWER ANIMAL
I was absolutely blown away after seeing her most recent show. That sister sure can SING!!! I love her multifaceted way with art, especially after watching her epic live concert 'BIOPHILIA' at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) last week. Her latest exploration of the elements & her apparent love affair with life on this planet is positively infectious. Along with the incredible sculpted costumes, epic hair, choir of angels, variety of instruments & percussion and songs about crystals, life, light bearers and the moon! A kindred spirit indeed! Now I am even more inspired to perform while embodying all that I am and create weird, inspiring, uplifting, unusual, activated healing music and collaborate with a variety of other musicians, dj's, artists, costume designers, visual geniuses, tech geeks & psychedelic lighting nerds to create mind blowing next level musical performance art that lifts spirits & raises our vibration simultaneously. I have been visioning this for a very long time and a few more sparkly elements are falling into place after seeing what is possible, thanks to Biophilia. Feeling super inspired!!! Thank you Bjork!
In other news, last night was the opening night of the Soul Voice Activation journey "Elemental Voices" and I am overwhelmed with the level of talent in the group. A powerful bunch of passionate singers who are already showing great signs of blowing me away with their awesomeness.
Last night we opened the shamanic medicine wheel in the direction of the East, the place of the rising sun, with the animal medicine of Eagle guiding us lovingly with clarity, vision, purpose and insight. We opened our hearts to radical self love, self acceptance, fierce compassion and self forgiveness. Opening our eyes to the essence of our soul and singing from this place of raw truth and vulnerability. It takes a lot of courage to embark upon this voyage of self discovery and radical self expression and already I am seeing the brave hearts aflame with passion and purpose.
Next week we move into the passionate energy of the North, the Fire of transformation and transmutation. The activation of PLAY and FUN! Singing from a place of JOY and INSPIRATION and calling in the laughter medicine of the Kookaburra for his encouragement to 'lighten up'.
I've asked the students to contemplate a few questions as they prepare for the element of FIRE, so that they may get the most out of each week...
These include : What's your big dream when it comes to singing? What's your vision of you singing in the world? What inspires you to sing? What do YOU want to create with the VOICE that is birthing through you and out into the world???
As we move from the open hearted awakening of AIR and into the flames of passion in FIRE, we use the opening of the HEART and the awakening of the SPIRIT to INSPIRE our dreams and SPARK our PASSIONS!!!
So good to be inspired!!! Finding inspiration everywhere!!! Thank you to the students of the Elemental Voices course for inspiring me to get writing and starting this blog, and thank you to Bjork for becoming my new power animal! Power UP!!! I LOVE to be inspired!!!
