These songs were birthed back in 2013-14 during a very intense and beautiful time.
A time where Divine Mother: (Truth in your Heart, Source, Guru, God - All one)

showed up in me, in an undeniable way.

In a playful and effortless way.

In a very strong way.

Breaking the shell, expanding, and tearing me apart very quickly.
these songs were the blossoming

of following HER instructions.

An exquisitely painful de-shackling.

I have loved and hated these healing songs like any good affair!

Such an honor stewarding them into the world.

Mine to tend, but not mine...

It took 6 years for me to fully hold them in my heart.

to fully sing them from my heart. 

And to mature in LOVE.

And now its my sweet pleasure to share them with you.
 

May surprise catch you.

As it did me.

 

1. Holy Divine Mother

Holy divine Mother
Please awaken in me
Intuition and tenderness
Invoking your grace
Invoking your grace

Jai Ma …

Holy divine Mother
You are the finale key
Whence we've come, hence we go
All souls must flow
All souls must flow

Jai Ma …

All souls must flow...


Jai Ma…

Holy divine Mother
You are love embodied
Where the circle meets itself
You are the essence of this place
You are the essence of this place

Jai Ma …

2. May I Have the Strength

May I have the strength to receive this cleansing fire...


May all my armor fall down upon the mother.

May all my armor fall down...

There is nothing left to defend

There is nothing left to fight
There is nothing left to judge

I am divine light

Om Dum Durgayei Namaha
Just let go...

Nothing left to defend, nothing left to fight, nothing left to prove,
I am divine light
Nothing left to defend, nothing left to fight, nothing left to prove,
we are Ma’s holy light
Nothing left to defend, nothing left to fight, nothing left to prove,

nothing left to hide
Nothing left to defend, nothing left to fight

Accept receive, and let go, let go to the inner shine
Let go to the inner shine
Just let go…

May all my armor fall down upon the mother
May all my armor fall down... (may i have the strength)


May I have the strength to receive your presence

Om Dum Durgayei Namaha

Just let go…

3. Cancel the Show

I've been forcing the pleasure, I've been squeezing life out


Clinging to olds ways I love and get love


Playing rage on the TV and lust on the radio


Quite convincing actors with pride directing the show



 

It's time to let this all go
Kick out the audience and  sweep the floor


Stop the ticket sales repay all the debt


Fire the actors and burn down the set



And lets live with no script


No stage lights and no false heaven


With no stage with no curtain


And let's Move beyond these shallow walls


and cancel the show

 

Give in and give up to the silence 

of empty stage of empty hall


What you hear it will delight you

pure essence, the call 


From deep within you from where sweet Guru Ji lives


The truth, the light and the love is calling you forth to begin



 

There no time to waste there’s no tomorrow anyway  


So let's tear down the theater altogether 


Crack the mortar brick by brick


And lets bring down these walls forever

 



And lets live with no script


No stage lights and no false heaven


With no stage with no curtain


And let's move beyond theses shallow walls and cancel the show
...

The only one...

The only one directing this play is the love from deep within


Yes the love from deep within yes the love from deep within


The love from deep within…



 

And let's move beyond and cancel the show… 


Let’s move beyond… 


and cancel the show
 

And the only one directing this play...

is the love from deep within

4. Oh Your Glory

Om Namo Sri Sachha Om Namo Guru Ji…

You landed in front of me, a giant stone obelisk
Unmoving unchanging and irrefutable

undeniable you were not the truth I think
You’re not mine, but mine to take note of

and for me to devote myself too

Oh your glory Truth
There is nothing else
Only surrender
And only grace
Oh your glory truth.
Touched at the center
How you moved me
and made me still

Om Namo Sri Sachha Om Namo Guru Ji…

To know you now, to know the difference
My heart unfolds and unloads and opens and uploads
Just a taste of you on my lips
and I am consumed

Oh your glory Truth
There is nothing else
Only surrender
And only grace
Oh your glory truth
Touched at the center
How you moved me,
And made me still
Made me still

Please come visit me some more
Come and dance and play with me
Dissolve my resistance in your beauty
Wash me clean in your ease
In your ease

Oh your glory Truth
There is nothing else
Only surrender
And only grace
Oh your glory Truth
Touched at the center
How you moved me
And made me still

5. Might Presence (written with David Vito Gregoli)

Your mighty presence moves thru me shaking all that is not me
Bringing me face down into the truth
Your piercing stare cuts me to my knees with overwhelming force
Cracking breaking a stubborn heart
Divine your cruelty
born of sweet compassion
                
Oh my your love…
You surround me
And protect me
And You guide me

Your tender stares send me soaring to celestial heights (celestial heights)
Paving my pathway in your golden light
To be seen in the light
To be seen divine
All this only possible in your grace 
born of sweet compassion

Om my your love…

You surround me in your Love
You protect me in your Light
And You guide me in your Truth
Glory be You guide me

Oh my your love…

You surround protect me and guide me…
Oh my Your Love…

6. Floating

What did I do to deserve this love, was it always free
Did I do something to turn the valve,
or was I just deaf dumb blind and lucky
Seems like I've been searching for eternity just to lay in your grace
Seems like I've been trolling beyond memory just to kiss your cheek

kiss your cheek

Overwhelmed by your presence

humility rises
Overwhelmed by your presence

a tidal wave of tenderness
Tenderness…



The humility that is blossoming deep in the cracks of my heart
Opens the door for gratitude to breath in the truth of God


My heart is constantly breaking praise for all flows thru


Grieving what I got is harder than it sounds 


This is living though. This is living 

 

For all that I have
For all that I have had


For all that I will have
Thank you…



 

Everything is fresh now
Everything is new


What a gift this love
Oh what a gift

what a gift

Now I pray to always be in this ocean if gratitude


And if I get out just push me back in and keep me in plenitude
May I always remember humility
May I always remember tenderness

Tenderness…
Floating…

Floating floating
Such trust
Floating floating
Such peace

Floating
Floating…

7. Your Love Heals Me

When I met you for real you challenged me
To dive thru my fear and set my heart free
To prepare the home and the vessel
give my desires to love
oh how you challenged me
As you were waiting deep inside of me
Oh Sacred Ma your loves heals me

Jay Durga
Jay Lakshmi Ma
Jay Saraswati
Jai Ma Jai Ma

And so I let go and I dove in your pure light
Truly seen and to see thru your divine eyes. Thru your loving eyes
To receive this blessing without the shame
To receive this blessing what a glorious glorious pain

Jay Durga
Jay Lakshmi Ma
Jay Saraswati
Jai Ma Jai Ma
Oh sacred Ma your love heals me

So please forgive me for throwing my rage
Forms of old revenge from ancient games of blame
Please stay with me now and live deep in my heart
Oh sacred Ma may we never part.

Jay Durga
Jay Lakshmi Ma
Jay Saraswati
Jai Ma Jai Ma

Oh sacred Ma your love heals me…

8. Everything That is Here

Everything that is here, is here to teach you about love
Everything that is here about peace
Everything that is here is here to tach me about grace
And to remind me
 
This universe, this gift, manifesting for me to see
All the beings, all places are infinite and free
Christ's full moon and the Master’s grace intimate and deep
All radiating from every cell of the one celestial being                        
One celestial being                            

What can I say that isn't already late?
What can I do? There is nothing to do
No matter what I think it's not my plan, it never was
Pride has deceived me, so let that go

and
Let go to Love, let go to Peace, let go to Grace  
That's growing everywhere along this path              

Everything that is here is love
Everything that is here is peace
Everything that is here is grace
Everything that here is Ma

She’s the universe, She’s the gift, manifesting for us to be
She’s all the beings, all places, She’s infinite and free
She is Christ's full moon, She is the Master’s grace, intimate and deep
She’s the radiance from every cell of the one celestial being                        
One celestial being                    

What can we say that isn't already late?
What can we do? There’s nothing to do
No matter we think it's not our plan, it never was        
Pride has deceived us, so let that go

and
Let go to Love, let go to Peace, let go to Grace
For She’s growing everywhere along this path

Can you feel it…

Can you feel the Love
Can you feel the Peace
Can you feel the Grace
Oh can you see...
She’s
Growing everywhere, growing everywhere,

growing everywhere, along this path…
 

Let go to Love, let go to Peace, let go to Grace
For She’s growing everywhere along this path

Everything…    Ma…   Everything Ma…
