Hi guys,
For inspiring, emotive and fun-loving music, or just something that will make you laugh its always John Hartford for me.
He wrote Gentle On My Mind which is one of the most covered songs of all time, became really famous and then retired early to be a steam boat captain on the Mississippi river. Truly inspiring person who followed his joy to the end and never became egoistic through fame.

I find the music of Massive Attack soOoo Wink enjoyable, especially the Mezzanine Album. My Light family introduced me to them when I started my conscious journey, that might have something to do with the buzz it gives me... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCwfUX58IZw

Thanks for this awesome link and songs! Here's one called "So They Say" by a Canadian rock band, Soul Attorneys. A big hit in the 90's. It always inspires me to lead from the heart and keep going, one step at a time -- no matter what. Catherine Smile

I mean come on who ain't heard of this one? "Enigma - Return To Innocence". It's the first tune I'm gona have to share one here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk_sAHh9s08
In the first few moments of the clip, you see an old man grateful just coz he has a pear. Wow

Don't be afraid to be Weak
Don't be too proud to be Strong
Just look in to your Heart my Friend
That will be the return to Yourself
The return to Innocence

But I shared it coz people on here would relate & resonate, but I'm a young mind so I'll share something not older than myself aswell; The works known as "Hiatus & Shura - Lionesque"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfT5diWE83Y
It's a Free Download send from the Heavens to liberate those Souls that will Listen & Feel, to those few Minds that will Clearly Think and work with The Heart, and Fly off into the Night Sky amongst the Stars with the Moonlight. Angelic whispers...

But that which will wreak my train of thought and stop my heart and listen to the next pulse of the body, is the works of Burial:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N701JYnjaMs
The Atmospheres of Crackle,
The Slow Haunting Beats
That Delicate Harmony
Fly off into the Void with Me
Smile
I welcome you

Réka's picture

I'm "omnivourous" when it comes to music, but let this song be the first I share here... this song visits me from time to time, mostly when I need reminding why it is really that I'm here...

The refrain could be my "motto":
“I do believe it is my duty to remind you of your beauty / I do believe it is and I’ll never forget. / We’re all learning how to be/ Living breathing human beings / In a world full of others living too! / We’re all dancing in a spiral / Even if we think we’re falling down for a while / The only place to go from the bottom is up / So look at your cup / Cause I think it’s full / This very lifetime is our school / And we’re all learning how to be / Human Kind.”

Thank you so much for sharing. I just have to see this live!
I used to play the music to Les Mis all the time when I was in high school. LOVE It! Wanted to see the theatre production for as long as it has been around... with a bit of an aversion to London tho' so it has not yet happened.

divinespark's picture

I can imagine that London would be a daunting place to see Les Mis, Trinity, having lived there for a short time many years ago! We are so fortunate in Victoria to have a lovely little theatre in Chemainus, a charming seaside community an hour away. I love what Broadway director/singer/actor Terrence Mann says about theatre, “Movies will make you famous; television will make you rich; but theatre will make you good.” Les Mis makes me better Smile

Trinity's picture

Your area sounds so great. Wish I was able to venture over there for the tour.

I am so looking forward to going to the theatre again. We have one about an hour from Glasto - although it doesn't have everything on Smile
Theatre is just so different to the screen. A different sort of performing.

Wonderful song Catherine! You've just got to love Leonard. And he's releasing an album of new songs on September 23, two days after his 80th birthday! Here is another one - "Going Home" from his 2012 album, "Old Ideas."

"Going home
Without my sorrow
Going home
Sometime tomorrow
Going home
To where it's better
Than before
Going home
Without my burden
Going home
Behind the curtain
Going home
Without the costume
That I wore"

A few months back Open posted a tract from Terry Oldfield's whale music. I felt such a strong resonance so immediately downloaded one of his albums to my iPod. Since then I have meditated to Oldfield's sublime music almost everyday and am guided by our friends, the whales, to ever and ever greater depths. Here is profoundly beautiful song from the album, De Profundis Out of the Depths. xxx Catherine

Hi Kim,

Thanks for sharing - a powerful song!

I loved the movie too.

Love Fiona

divinespark's picture

Kim, I enjoyed the kick-ass song "Warriors" from the film "Insurgent" and the lyrics, "The time will come when you'll have to rise above the best..." Fiona, the inimitable Madonna rocks it again with "Ray of Light." "She's got herself a little piece of heaven waiting for the time when earth shall be as one."

"One Day" by Matisyahu elevates my soul when I'm feeling worn down by all the suffering in this crazy, effed up world. It inspires me to feel into the harmony and unconditional love of the higher paradigm "…where there will be no more wars and our children will play."

"Sometimes I lay
Under the moon,
And thank God I'm breathing.
Then I pray
Don't take me soon
'Cause I am here for a reason...
Sometimes in my tears I drown,
But I never let it get me down.
So when negativity surrounds,
I know some day it'll all turn around…"

Music is my language these days. As Trinity and Open journey from Glastonbury to the west coast of Canada, Annie Lennox's song "Into the West" from the film "Lord of the Rings" resonates deeply within. This attached video clip of her song features many of the beloved characters from the film trilogy: Frodo, Sam Wise, Arwen, Lady Galadriel, Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Elrond. Shining, courageous, dauntless spiritual warriors. Like us Openhanders. xxx Catherine

Here's a song from Jakob Dylan (son of Bob Dylan) and The Wallflowers "One Headlight" from the era of '90's rock. The Wallflowers also had a hit with "Heroes." Open played the version of "Heroes" by David Bowie last night at the Divine Being seminar. It's one of my very favourite songs so I loved hearing it! "One Headlight" resonates deeply within me. Perhaps it will with some of you, as well. xxx Catherine

I havent been introduced to Tina Malia or Karen Drucker by anyone, came accross them on my search for new music. It is wonderful how we are being led into the direction that resonates. I know this is how life works and i am constantly in awe. This is only the beginning for me in waking up.
I am greatful for having found Openhand. This is my first experience in connecting with a like minded virtual community.

If you go to the Community Forum, Sharing the Journey and to Angels Place. Trinity has posted a video there titled, "You are Enough". The background music is Tina Malia, Shine. It is a lovely video that I am sure you will enjoy <3

Thank you, Kim, Maureen, and Sonia for these soft, surrendering song gems. And thanks, Open, for Trinity's "Touching the Soul" video. Beautiful. I wasn't familiar with any of these artists, so I'm delighted to make their acquaintance. I'm downloading their music to my iPod. What a lovely invite from Divine Benevolence to listen to these gems and surrender into the tightness. Much appreciated, Catherine

divinespark's picture

This morning I listened to Tina Malia's ethereal song, "Shores of Avalon." It's so hauntingly beautiful and so profoundly moving that I listened to it at least three times. Each time the tears streamed down my face as I felt the sadness of letting go of attachments in the 3rd dimension as I continue my journey to the higher world. This song has a special poignancy given that Open and Trinity established Openhand Foundation on the Isle of Avalon to shine the light forwards to the path between worlds. xxx Catherine

divinespark's picture

Tigger,

I so welcome this video and song right now! It's a time of deep sorrow for my country. Yesterday Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission admitted to our government's historical attempts of cultural genocide of our First Nations peoples. Many of us believed that this was indeed the case, however, I feel that this official confession heralds a new era of healing and forgiveness. When I watched the opening of this video, my tears flowed as I felt the purity of the words spoken by the native performers. And as the music unfolded and the dancers swirled around, my spirit was swept up in a gentle but powerful wind of forgiveness and loving unity with all my brothers and sisters. Totally heartmelting. Much appreciated, Tigger.

Woah - that is so soulful Tigger. A powerful example of spirit moving through incarnated beings. Amazing!

Am so glad that Brule resonated with you Catherine and Trinity. Thank you for bringing a big smile to my face this morning Smile

Catherine, your empathy is profound and beautiful. Do you carry bear medicine?

Tigger

divinespark's picture

Hi Tigger,

Thank you for you kind works. I experienced your question, "Do I carry bear medicine?" as an invite to explore its appearance in my life through you and what the bear totem might symbolize for me. I've truly enjoyed reading about and feeling into how I embody the spirit of the bear and what its spirit can teach me. I relate to feeling the fierce mother protectress energy of the mother bear with her cubs and its extension to all life, going inwards into the bear's cave of the unconscious to shine the light there and unwind my distortions, and to the strength and warrior energy of bears. Although bears embody the warrior spirit, they know when to hibernate and rest and when to go out into the world. This is their greatest teaching for me at present since I have driven myself mercilessly in the outer world for most of my life. Denying my feelings and emotions. Denying the vulnerability of my soul. I love that bears know how to balance their warrior energy by taking time for solitude, quiet time, and rest. Given that I'm feeling burned out, it's a perfect time to invoke the energy of the bear to help me embrace my vulnerability, rest and renew my warrior spirit, and heal body, mind, and spirit. Helping to heal others as I radiate a higher way of being into the surrounding energy field. It was such a delight to feel into how mother bears enjoy playtime with their cubs and how they teach us to keep our inner cubs alive. I'm reaching for my teddy bear as we speak. Much love to you, Tigger, for giving me this precious gift of connecting to the spirit bear's healing energy. xxx Catherine

Spiritpaws's picture

Hi Catherine,

Am so glad you were able to connect with the medicine of bear. I confess when I asked you the question of whether you carried bear medicine it was a spontaneous intuitive "hit". Sometimes I am not adept at filtering or at least waiting...the bear came so strong to me in regards to you that I just blurted it out Smile

Even this morning, as I write this, I feel bear medicine around you. It's very possible you have been carrying bear medicine for some time and just didn't realize it. The Lakota say that Crazy Horse carried bear medicine, which both gave him his visions and his courage and bravery as a warrior.

Who knows, maybe we will be calling you Catherine Walks with Bear.....:-)

With love,

Tigger

Trinity's picture

I feel a real 'Mamma Bear' energy from you Catherine. When Tigger wrote that I felt a massive 'yes!'. It feels safe, protective, brave and warrior like all at the same time.

Tigger - I love that you blurted it out (which I totally didn't think of as 'blurting' by the way - ha ha) It's too easy to hold back... and sharing so often brings deeper insight.

divinespark's picture

Trinity, Thank you for sharing your feelings about my Mamma Bear energy! So lovely and much appreciated. You and Tigger are so awesome for helping me to feel into my own energy more deeply.

Tigger, Like Trinity I love that you feel free to be spontaneous without checking yourself. It's my feeling that spontaneity is where the greatest pearls lie before our intellects kick in and quash the authentic expression of our souls. It's a gift you have in spades. Thank you for inspiring me to do the same! I really had no awareness of carrying bear medicine until you posed the question that led me to connect with spirit bear. Deep gratitude. I'd be happy to be called Catherine Walks With Bear any day of the week. I felt chills when you mentioned Crazy Horse. When my son, Stephen, was a young boy, I bought him a book about the life of Crazy Horse. The book sat in a little bookcase at the head of his bed and whenever I looked at the cover photo of Crazy Horse, I could feel his courage seep into my bones. I love this quote from him:

"“A very great vision is needed, and the man who has it must follow it as the eagle seeks the deepest blue of the sky.”

Openhand has a great vision. May we follow it together and soar into the heavens as the eagle flies.

Much Love,

Catherine

Spiritpaws's picture

Thank you Trinity and Catherine Walks with Bear for making such space for spontaneity. I had a big let go when I read your words, so I can now get rid of that steamer trunk full of hesitancy, and doubt. Woohoo!

I did not know that quote from Crazy Horse. A powerful one indeed. When I read it I really connected to the "deepest blue of the sky" and I kind of vibrated for a few seconds Smile

In meditation yesterday my spirit was shown the flow: it stretched over the canyon and went to The Source. The flow was in a way invisible and yet existed. My spirit danced on the flow and then noticed a being on the edge of the canyon, hunched over, afraid to trust the flow was there. My spirit went over to the being and then realized that being was my ego. And no matter how hard my spirit tried to encourage, coax, nurture the ego to step into the flow, the ego said, "no way".

Clearly I have some work to do...hehehehe

with love, Tigger

This song came to me today... The words are really powerful!

Drive
By Incubus
Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I am beginning to find
That I should be the one behind the wheel
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there with open arms and open eyes
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there, I'll be there
So if I decide to waiver my chance
To be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine
And hold my own and drive?
It's driven me before
And it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around
But lately I am beginning to find
That when I drive myself my light is found
So whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there with open arms and open eyes
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there, I'll be there
Would you choose water over wine
And hold my own and drive?
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there with open arms and open eyes
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there, I'll be there

Who's gonna sing a song of change
If no one can imagine life outside the beaten track?
And who's gonna stop the running train
If no one cares to dwell and no one wants to look back?

Somewhere along the line you gave up asking
When it got a little too complex
But if you don't question what has been
Does it mean that you don't care what's coming next?

You've got no one to follow
And no one will follow you
Ain't that a relief
That everything and everyone must grow in opposition
To resistance and contradiction,
This ain't no time to go to sleep

This ain't no time to go to sleep

So who's gonna sing a song of faith
If no one prays for anything that can't be bought or sold?
And who's gonna tell the story straight
Does anyone believe there's still a story to be told?

Somewhere along the line you just stopped walking
When the undercurrent got too strong
Someday a lonely busker will come knocking
With a soft and long forgotten song

That you've got no one to follow
And no one will follow you
Ain't that a relief
That everything and everyone must grow in opposition
To resistance and contradiction,
This ain't no time to go to sleep

Oh, this ain't no time to go to sleep

Hi Oliver,

Much gratitude for this song. I was feeling a longing to return home to a distant star of late. So I asked Divine Benevolence to show me if I have work still to do here. The song you posted is part of the synchronistic response I received from the Universe, so I will continue to sing a song of change with all you magnificent souls. xxx Catherine

Joanne!

I love this chant especially the way he incorporates Foreigner's song, "I Wanna Know What Love Is." That song has always been a favourite, and I play it often on my iPod. Thank you for this.

I'm thrilled to hear you are steppin' out and singing with a group. I so enjoyed your beautiful voice at the Victoria Openhand workshop in April. You and Pink. Up there there in lights ha! You go, girl!

Sharing "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday" by The Rolling Stones is inspired by Trinity's post today about acting on her dream and publishing her cookbook before exiting planet earth. I have been inspired by this song for a very long time.

"There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind
Ain't life unkind…"

Trinity's picture

Oh wow!

Shortly after I woke up (back in the day!) my boyfriend at the time used to play this song and dedicated it to me. So 20 years ago, this was 'my' song. Perfect choice Catherine. Love it!

Which reminds me (since we're on the subject of Rolling Stones) about when Open and I turned up in Glastonbury with a van full of stuff (which was from my house that we'd just left). We pulled up outside the house on the road and Mick Jagger's nephew was doing some odd jobs outside for the house next door. We asked if he could give us a hand unloading the van (furniture n' boxes) and he did. Such a nice guy.

divinespark's picture

Trinity!

So cool that this was your song way back when! It was also my signature song when I was a free-spirited 18-year old and knew that I would fly the coop!

Neat story about Sir Mick's nephew helping you and Open unload your van at the start of your magical Openhand journey. He must have sensed that you are superstars!

"Don't question why she needs to be so free
She'll tell you it's the only way to be…"

That's too cool Catherine Dance 4 - we keep have lots of synchronicities actually.. obviously destined to cross paths.
You are clearly super human (ha ha ha) because I quoted those EXACT lines that you just did (but deleted them for some reason)... and you also posted Fiona's quote elsewhere (which Fi & I had JUST been talking about before you did it).
Love
x

divinespark's picture

I love hearing about these synchronicities, Trinity! They help me to attune more fully to the energy of NOW. When I felt the strong pull to post Fiona's quote --" If not now, when?" -- I was feeling like "It's now or never!" Which is another way of saying that all we ever have is the energy of Now. I've heard these words many times, and I have said them many times, but they have taken on a much deeper meaning for me.

Perhaps you deleted those specific "Ruby Tuesday" lyrics to hold the space for me to do so!

How wonderful that we were destined to cross paths! I give huge thanks for that!

Much Love,

x Catherine

Synchronistically it begins on Santa Monica beach, at an amusement park there, where after my trip to Hopi Lands back in 2013, I was being metaphorically shown the return of the "Blue Star Kochina" (represented for me in the Blue Ferris Wheel shown at the beginning of the video). The Hopi considered Blue Star Kochina to be the final sign before the "Great Purification" - the Great Realignment - begins.

This tune send me somewhere so highly beautiful, it reminded me of my childhood in the 00's.
And I splattrered all these random words out:
Of Back when I was in my native country of Bulgaria,
and where every summer I'd crusade back and forth
to my grandparents high top mountain villas.
with no light pollution,
100s of fireflies come out to dance the sometimes deadly, language of love.
Oh it was beautiful!!!
Home grown fruit blessed with grannys Love!
Naa man I got the tears out now
And I can't just stop writting now:=
coz I don't wanna conceal the thoughts about
the 00's, fuck.... alrite I'll do it,
The vibes from the 00's have gone by innit....
we are now midway past the 10's
but we are now different from then on,
now about to embrace the 20's
as we stand with a nuclear reactor brewing our oceans.
Where we our toilet tubes flush all our shit to;
100% of that excreted saucey-grade fertilizer.
Which then deprives our food from nutrients....
coz it breaks the natural recycle, over the years.
I'm telling you! Them homegrown fruit & veg were something elSe.
grown not on over utilized land, but high in the Bulgarian mountains.
They were something else.... our foods' not rig_t

Yes, I agree. I saw this happening in a guided meditation at Openhand in Glastonbury back in 2014. The meaning of this vision wasn't immediately obvious to me: there were two huge hemispheres in the 'movie' I was watching with my eyes closed. One was above and it 'turned out to be' the Sun. The other was below, this was the Earth, covered with black mud and this sludge was continously being sucked into the Sun above. When I recently shared all this with a friend, he responded to me without hesitation: 'What you described here is basically the video Black Hole Sun from Soundgarden'....

This song for me is not at all about the relationship between the woman and the man. More about the process of the union of the masculine and the feminine, wich culminates in the final phase called Rubedo or redness, in alchemy, a stage where blood (also as a metaphor for our spiritual essence) and passion enters the work. This leads us towards our Garden of Eden, the spiritual gold we've alwasy been seeking for. But in order to get there, we have to cross our Red Sea (our karma, if you will), and everything we've learnt so far on our path has to be integrated into our daily life. The colour of this sacred union is red (and also white - pls watch also the video). This, for me, is the Blood of Eden.

I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
I saw the signs of my undoing
They had been there from the start

And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord's untying
The heated and the holy
Oh they're sitting there on high
So secure with everything they're buying

In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

Severance,
The birds of leaving call to us,
Yet here we stand
Endowed with the fear of flight.

Overland
The winds of change consume the land,
While we remain
In the shadow of summers now past.

When all the leaves
Have fallen and turned to dust,
Will we remain
Entrenched within our ways.

Indifference,
The plague that moves throughout this land
Omen signs
In the shapes of things to come.
Tomorrow's child is the only child.

I really like the possible analogy in this video. Doubts, fears, judgement of what is, lack of faith in life - things that can pull you back, like a parachute on your back in a wind channel. However, you can learn to use these for your own benefit too, and the same 'parachute' can now lift you up so that you may rise...Lovely:)

"When, when the fire's at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They're whispering, "You're out of time,"
But still I rise

This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in
Think again
Don't be surprised
I will still rise

I must stay conscious
Through the madness and chaos
So I call on my angels
They say

Oh, ye of so little faith
Don't doubt it, don't doubt it
Victory is in your veins
You know it, you know it
And you will not negotiate
Just fight it, just fight it
And be transformed"

Hi Trinity,

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful song and video.

It spoke to me of how are all unique and maginificently creative beings in our own way, just like the singers here. Yet when we come together and join forces, we can create something more magical than we could as seperate individuals - Hallelujah! Wow!

I celebrate the unity of difference <3

Love Fiona

Open's picture

I completely agree with you Fiona - is how each is a unique and individual expression, fully realising their potential, yet finding an incredible harmony.

The other way it speaks to me, is of finding similar frequencies like this in ONE soul. Because each single soul is a harmony too.

Many lovely lessons there!

Trinity's picture

Indeed Fiona. Each bringing something unique to the harmony, creates something incredible when it is meant to be. A perfect example of that in the video above. I didn't even think about that until you mentioned it, just felt the energy of the vibes move the core of my being. A sort of wordless language.

Richard W's picture

I loved this video, especially as this is one of my favourite songs. The combination of Leonard Cohen's stirring lyrics and the harmony of this band really gets me going.

Another great video by the same band (Pentatonix) is this one - the Evolution of Michael Jackson. It really showcases what people have been talking about their individual creativity to one whole piece.

I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson as a kid. He has some really soul stirring songs, and if you see some of the videos of him, you can see the emotion coming through. I know there was a lot of controversy around him, but I believe only a truly beautiful soul could sing some of these songs with such feeling.

Anyone dealing with religious past lives or any sort of persecution energy, or teenage angst or perhaps anger at OC..... then I highly recommend this song to get you right into the centre of the pain and express.

Very effective especially the end. However it contains explicit language so perhaps earphones if delicate ears are nearby.

Happe processing.
With love

Also this song is simply beautiful. I was reminded of it today when I heard it playing softly in a cafe and it brought beautiful memories and feelings flooding in. Felt to share

With love

Hi Etta,
Thanks for posting the link to the Rage Against the Machine song. It really is very effective, and I'll definitely come back to it (and all that it does) soon.
And when it was through and I was still sniffling, YouTube wanted to play another song by the band, and it was called "Take the Power Back".
Isn't the Universe awesome? Wink
Lots of love,
Heike

Yesterday, I saw the heart-soaring film "Lion" based on a true story. Indeed, the lion's heart leads us home. Felt to share Sia's upbeat song "Never Give Up" from the film. Speaks to me of the power of our twin flames going the distance with us, hand-in-hand. Through thick and thin.

Thanks for reminding me (us) about that one Cathy - been meaning to see it.

Just thought to share this song with you all here. It reminds me that even though the world at large is going through so many changes, we are all still doing pretty good! That and he is a really good Bard. Especially in today's day and age when you turn on the radio and stare in bewildered disbelief as the song of the moment only has one word in it. Just one word. Maybe its just me in the aspect that I like a good story in a song.
Anyways I'll leave y'all to it, hope you enjoy!
