If you've been following me or gone LIVE with me on Social Media, you may already know about my creative spiritual practice and how much JOY I have been initiating as a result of my Music.
I am an avid journal keeper, and one way in which I keep a journal is in my spiritual practice. I love to record Sacred Text along with insights that come to mind. I also keep a spiritual poetry journal, and as of late, I've been riffing on that poetry vibe by writing lyrics from the spiritual concepts I study, and bringing them to life with my tambourine as I find the rhythm, the melody, the tempo and the spirit in which I desire to portray what those words communicate.
This is a somewhat new experience for me in this vibe and in this JOY Filled process.
I do have some song writing experience from over 13 years ago so it feels so good to be getting back to it, only in a whole new way that truly Resonates with my Heart and Fills my soul with Gladness.
I also grew up with a musician Father and recall many times hanging out with him in his den as he played his drums and practiced his rhythm on his smaller drum that he taught me with. So the tambourine brings me great memories, in addition to times I played it in worship teams many years ago.
And now I have one of my own and I am so enJOYing playing and engaging as I sing from my heart and soul as I connect with Spirit in a deeper way.
I don't take any song for granted but see each one as a Gift; because, to me, that's exactly what it is.
Below I have shared my song, Feel the Light, and talk about my spiritual practice. EnJOY.
