for we are here to alchemise lies to truth hate to love and shadows, to light, above...
This song was born, the day after a particularly difficult and sleepless night – I’d received news that brought one aspect of my reality, crumbling to pieces…
I’d felt tired all day, and picked up my guitar to energise and motivate myself to go down to play at the Tuesday night Songwriter’s night in town, that I regularly go to. As I was strumming a new tune, these words flowed out of me. I pressed the record button on my phone to capture them: as I do when I feel a new song is about to be created….
And I went down to play that night, full of energy, feeling expansive and reborn out of the ashes, ready to share magic with the world.
I want to remind you that every emotion, and every situation, may be alchemised. You have the power to shift your mindset, to shift your vibration, and choose the reality you want to create. Be mindful – where do you place your energy? Be aware of your thoughts, your actions, the people you surround yourself with. Do you allow yourself to get caught up in racing negative thought patterns? Do you allow yourself to be distracted from taking action on the things that matter to you… by procrastinating, scrolling, on instagram? How about the people you give your energy to? Healthy relationships should involve a balanced flow of giving and receiving – not be one sided and draining.
Now today is the Spring equinox. Every day, every sunrise, can be a golden moment to set new intentions, set your mindset for the day, and give thanks to the beautiful things that are present in your life right here and right now…
But today especially, I invite you to take some inward time for yourself. Time to reflect, journal, and set intentions – about where to put your energy in these coming months. Which seeds within you do you want to water, nurture, grow?
That we may rise together and blossom into the tall, sturdy, strong trees that we are. Reaching ever higher to the sky, with our grounded roots in the earth.
p.s. this song may just become a duet, watch this space. And very proud of this special soul Alex Flett of the Sun Dragon One Man Band, releasing his first album today.
