Death’s Door

My partner Tim and I are From the Aether an acoustic Duo band.

This is a new recording he and I did in our Travel trailer in which we have traveled through America from New York over to California, where we are spending most of our time now.

Come and check us out:

To an Ex

With every day that passes by,
I am less drawn to the questions why –
Why we never had a chance,
Why you weren’t ready to dance.

And then I realize this dream,
Was one that only I had seen –
You weren’t ready to perceive –
That what I would always believe.

For if I try to change for you,
You’ll never see the me that’s true –
I dimmed my light –
And lost my inner fight.

I have let go –
You’re not the person I thought I’d know.
Within my world you’ve gotten smaller,
My light inside has gotten taller.

I am grateful for what you taught me,
Those heavy lessons about my destiny –
The universe has other plans –
And I will now take every chance.

I freed my soul from expectations –
Of me and you and my creations.
My heart is ready to believe –
That I am here now to receive:

A love that fulfills my wildest fantasy –
All I gotta do is let him come to me.
So that soon enough and with a beautiful balance,
My king and I will have a chance,

When in a waltz we will dance,
In passionate eternal romance,
And together embrace –
A new and beautiful phase.

If you were god/dess…

…what would you do?

How would you feel?

Being god/dess means being limitless…

If god/the universe would give you the gift
to be god/dess for a day, would you walk like a god/dess,
talk like a god/dess?

What kind of energy would you express
and bring into this world?

Now, what if I told you, you are god/dess?
What if I told you, you are able to walk,
talk and BE God/dess every day?

Does this change your attitude to your daily life?

Don’t forget, this brings a huge
responsibility into your life.
YOU ARE GOD/DESS!!!

You -and you alone – are responsible for
how you walk, talk, feel – how you (re)act
and what you project into this world…

Can you embody your inner beauty,
your higher self, your god/dess for a day –
and the next – and the next?

We are so used to giving our power away
that it can be very hard to even stay
within our god/dess power for 2 minutes…
no more making others responsible for what
we say, do, feel.

That’s tough!

But learnable and the most freeing thing in this world!!!

Phoenix – rise from the ashes…

There are times when we feel empty and cold, lost and alone – and it seems that any extra step we take could make us stumble and fall.
Numb, hardly able to breath or speak, we pull away; away from our loved ones, our dreams, from life itself.

What is there to fight for or surrender to?

These are the times right before our transformation where deepest darkness surrounds us.

The dark night of the soul.

We dive into our own darkness in order to find the source of light within.

In order to find back to our authentic selves, we have to die first.

It’s often the last step before our dreams come true.

We need to lose ourselves in order to find back to our true essence.

The essence of love and everlasting power of our souls.

But the process of dying is a painful one.
Not knowing where to go or who to turn to – until we realize there is no one to turn to other than our true selves.

Allow yourself to fall, to cry, to surrender. Allow yourself to lose control.
Control of ego is an illusion…
Shake off the demons that whisper that you are a failure into your ear and allow yourself to see your light again.

Take your power back.
Ignite your energy and burn your doubts away.

And you will rise like a phoenix from the ashes – and become your authentic self again, filled with self-sove and appreciation for life.

Glow and set your soul on fire!

It is a wild journey into the deepest fears within. But if I was able to get out of this, so can you!
