EMBODIMENT awakening to essence through sound
These musical notes and movements often came to me with their corresponding energies as gentle visitors from another dimension. They have embraced me, taught me, and inspired me, and continue to do so. Their awakened consciousness has fully collaborated in the development of this music that intensely calls to be a felt experience and foster a new consciousness on the earth.
May you enjoy these musical creations. May they bless you with whatever your heart and soul are yearning for, as you actively engage with their consciousness and allow them to resonate with your unique essence at a cellular level. May we all walk together on this journey, sharing a vision for peace and love among all beings.
The listener is invited to become familiar with and experience this guided meditation prior to listening to the music in order to create an inner sacred space:
"As I enter the woods with a sense of awe and a heart overflowing, I feel warmly embraced by the essence of nature. Leaves crackling under my feet as I walk, birds singing, chipmunks scurrying about, and crickets sounding in the background all beckon my attention. As I arrive at my beloved stream, I send blessings to all the water that sustains the universe, and that sustains all of us. I climb a narrow path that leads to a boulder that has become my companion on these walks. Peering out at the trees, I experience myself as one of them, feeling my spine as a tree trunk, taking in the energy and sustenance of the glorious sun, being touched and moved by the gentle breezes. I hear an occasional twig falling in synchrony with the wind. As I relish in the pauses amongst the myriad of sounds, I become astutely aware that we are all one, cooperating in this magnificent symphony of life. I become conscious that these same elements of which I am in awe, exist also within my own body. As I feel into the connectedness between the inner and outer, my being opens wide to divine essence. I relax into this space, feeling a lightness, joy, gratitude, and love that my spirit has chosen this body at this time to be alive on earth. I luxuriate in this precious, sacred space, feeling my body as a magnet, connecting the heavens and the earth."

HOW TO USE THIS CD:
As a form of subtle activism or prayer--As this music is a co-creation with elemental beings, as you join with its awakened consciousness there is a powerful potential to “dream a new world into being.”
As background music, for listening enjoyment and/or to clear energy and bring balance to a space.
To awaken your “inner shaman,” --that sense of “beingness,” and ecstatic joy that is your birthright.
To bring balance to your nervous system, through connecting with the element that is out of balance, or connecting with the element that is needed.
Suggestions for Listening and Engaging with the Elements:
Part I: Awakening
- Essence of Creation
Focus: heart opening, breathing fully and creating space for expansion.
As you prepare to engage with the elements, please bring to each one a sense of honor, respect, openheartedness, and play.
- Essence of Earth (containment)
Focus: pelvis, sense of solidity and containing in the body, especially in the bones. What sound does it make? Sing this sound if you wish (syllables ah, om, or hum work well) and/or move in whatever way feels right, to meet the music/element.
- Essence of Fire (transformation)
Focus: heart, solar plexus, sex organs, sense of a “spark” in the body—feet and hands, fingers and toes. What sound does it make? Feel free to sing this sound (ah, om, or hum) and/or move in whatever way feels right, to meet the music/element.
- Essence of Water (absorption)
Focus: bodily fluids, sense of “flow” in the body. What sound does it make? You can sing this sound (ah, om, or hum) and/or move in whatever way feels right, to meet the music/element.
- Essence of Air (one breath)
Focus: sense of space in the body, felt especially through the breath, sense of “being breathed by the one breath”. What sound does it make? You are invited to sing this sound (ah, om, or hum) and/or move in whatever way feels right, to meet the music/element.
- Essence of Ether (co-creation)
Focus: sense of subtle energy/space in and around the body. What sound does it make? You may sing this sound (ah, om, or hum) and/or move in whatever way feels right, to meet the music/element.
Part II: ALCHEMY
7. Essences Merging
Focus: Visualize elements down to their particles merging, being held by the water in your body/the consciousness of water.
8. Essence of Magic
Focus: Solar plexus and sun’s rays; imagine solar plexus and third eye, connecting to the center of the sacred geometrical form below. Imagine light streaming down from the sun and touching the elemental particles in the water and transmuting to light.
Part III: Heaven on Earth—Focus: heart space and whole being filling with light. Let go completely, relaxing into a state of bliss

ANGEL GRATITUDE: A MUSICAL JOURNEY HOME
My musical journey began twenty three years ago in Hawaii. I was interning at the Veterans Administration in clinical psychology and working with traumatized veterans and survivors of Hurrican Iniki. In this sacred and beautiful setting, musical notes and rhythmic patterns began to come to me as though gifts from the cosmos. The process of interacting with this music awakened my soul to what I have come to know as "Joyous Presence," which I experience as that place where emotions, nature, and the spirit world dance together. Whatever my issues and feelings of the day, this became my way of opening up to a larger presence that is beyond place and time. The thirteen pieces on this CD, individually and as a whole, represent my journeys to this place of presence.
It is this presence that I encourage my clients to seek. I believe that in knowing and returning to this place, one accesses greater resources to cope with daily struggles. In this manner, the unfolding of one's potential happens in the most natural way. It is my hope that this CD will assist you in touching that place within yourself and ultimately accelerating your own healing and evolution.
