A Muse in Harmony

The music we make, creates. Medicine music for all.

I’m diving in…

Several days ago my amazing husband helped me see how much I have been allowing my own self-criticism to halt my creative process. Around the same time, Arian began pulling my song journal out from under the bed, where it’s been hiding since we moved here.
So yesterday, when my phone died during a rare opportunity of quiet, I set my judgements aside and began writing with an actual pen and paper again. I found inspiration in the sound of a squirrel munching just outside, and before I knew it, I’d written half a song.
I’ve been ignoring clear signs for a while to unplug more. It comes back to the lesson from the seagull. Making space for myself, not just in the word, but in the world within, where my divine stream of consciousness flows.
Music is Medicine Monday on Instagram and Twitter and Seattle Sound-Weavers updates will continue. Though I won’t be sharing ‘as much’ of the day to day here, you will still find me over on #snapchat from time to time @ amuseinharmony.
It’s time for me to dive right into my heART, incubate Sound-Weavers and write more songs for my first original album. Yes, that’s right, I’m claiming it right here and now. I don’t know all the hows, but one step at a time, it’s gonna happen. Best believe! ✊

So grateful to all who share this wild, wonderful life with me. I’m not disappearing, only diving to my depths to bring forth greater pearls to come. 😘

Author: A Muse in Harmony

A stage performer at age 8, a professional Nashville recording artist by 13 and a record deal on the table by 16, I was born to sing. Disenchanted with the mainstream, commercial track I was on, I set my music aside for years until the pregnancy of my firstborn reawakened my voice. Motherhood has been the greatest flint and tinder to my creative fire. Each of my kids have their own special song, intuitively revealed as I carried each of them in my womb. Sounding during the labor of my second son helped me birth his 10 lb. 13 oz. form in half the time of my first, pushing for only 30 minutes. After experiencing the power of singing during labor firsthand, a passion arose in me to help other birthing Mothers do the same. I embrace music from a holistic perspective. Singing is more than entertainment, it’s entrainment of the mind, body, spirit and world as we experience it. All of life itself is intricately composed of vibration (sound) in constant motion. As human beings, each with our own built-in creation tool, our voice, we have the opportunity to create our world anew. Music carries the listener on a journey, an experience unique to each artists’ creation perspective. Our bodies eventually fade, but music lives on and changes lives forevermore. From this understanding, the role of a musical artist carries a great power and responsibility, to be conscious of the vibrations we share with the world. I pledge to inspire, to move people (and mountains) with my voice and music, to share my whole, beautiful and sometimes messy truth each and every moment I am on this sacred Earth, and encourage others to do the same. This life is precious. Only you can be you. Show up in all your glory. Rise and shine.
