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.

SHINE!!!

Shine!

Leave your worries behind and allow your light to come through you!

You were meant to shine, not to stay in darkness.

Of course, without darkness you would have never found the light…

You are here for a reason – you are here because one day, many years ago, your soul wanted to come to this planet to experience contrast.

Pain, suffering, worrying – happiness, gratitude, joy – and so many other states of mind.

You wanted your heart to soar, to fly, to express itself.

See, your mind is a tool – it is not your boss, it’s not meant to rule!

The problem is that the subconscious mind picks up on so much negativity all around you that you think those thoughts are truly yours…

But once you realize that you steer your boat towards the shadows, you can take a different turn and sail towards the light.

The truth is: you can use this tool (your mind) to change your life by pouring more and more good thoughts into your consciousness.

Focus on the sun within your heart – and you will no longer be able to stay in the shadows.

Once the sun has awakened within you, all you can do is shine!

So be what you are the best, be the sun, even if the world around you is filled with shadows.

Believe in yourself – just as much as you believe that the sun shines every day, whether the clouds are in front of the sun or not.

You were born to Shine!

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!
