I offer myself to you; I’m in service of truth every utter be pure I open the shutters wide inviting the light in oh now I see it all could I dare to clamber below to meet Hades on his throne in his kingdom of fire? I’m a pilgrim on a quest, from this searching I’ll never rest only climb higher It’s not just answers I seek go knocking at all doors I’m leaving behind all that comforts me going hunting with my bow and arrow I’m willing to feel it all, demons and every gaul I have all the strength I need I muster the courage, flutter my wings, won’t hurry for in flying first I must fall freedom is my true name; I wont run any race calmly I unlace the chords I’m untying life times of lying, embrace no shying watch me dissolve it’s not just answers… dive into water, dive into water, dive into water… dive into water, trust and I’ll free fall, dive into water, there’s treasure to be found dive into water, trust and I’ll free fall, dive into water, yes I’ll be brave. it’s not just answers…

Lead I might think I am, I’m always being led the choices I think I make have already been decided so I choose to free myself that I may free all souls for every drop of water there’s a life that’s rolling on There’s an ocean inside of me and sometimes I feel I’m the sailor there’s an ocean inside of me and sometimes I feel I’m at the mercy of the tempest there’s an ocean and sometimes my sails are full I soar with the wind and I reach for the moon there’s an ocean inside that reminds me I’m in the hands of the gods I’m in the hands of the gods storms come crashing my waves and I will bow to your grace, I’d rather an ocean that roars to my soul oh great white thundering horses you’ve come to gallop with me let’s run now, the stars are calling the fog clears wild is the drum invincible, oh see how we run… There’s an ocean inside of me… I’m in the hands of the gods I’m in the hands of the gods

Only Love 05:19
Willow Tree come speak to me speak to me of your weeping I come to listen to your story oh, your dance of sorrow may your wisdom flow through me and bring me healing flowing waters, rain is pouring now I hear the ocean roaring thunder only frightens those who fear it open my wings, raw and tender now you ask me to surrender I lift up my hands; I remember how it goes from here I see my edges, fears cold fingers walls that from long ago still linger strip me naked, bare I quiver, unfurling all is welcome, come whatever no resistance, this way it’s better may my boundaries be my quest come untethered open my heart deeper, deeper ever flowing is the river at the gateway stands the keeper singing; he says ‘You’ve come this far, you need go no further I will always be your true lover for in this kingdom reigns no other, only love only love, only love, only love open my heart deeper, deeper ever flowing is the river.

Everything’s perfectly as it should be, trust me x 2 everything’s perfectly as it should be, trust me, trust me I love you just the way you are right now x 3 right here in this moment you’re perfect to me everything’s clearing and I release x 3 I let go and I’m open, I release with devotion x 4 trust and surrender, trust and surrender trust and surrender, always remember this

I call you 07:20
I call upon my ancestors as I bow to the earth I call upon my ancestors ‘Come speak to me’ I ask for the wisdom of the elders and from those who walked here before I call to the wind and the stars and the moon, ‘Come breathe through me’ I call to the buzzard and the hawk, ‘Teach me to ride on the wind’ the waves pounding at my shore teach me what surrender means spirit of the deer ‘I call you, I call upon you’ spirit of the trees ‘I call you, I call upon you’ White Buffalo Woman ‘I call you, I call upon you’ spirit of the breeze ‘I call you, I call upon you’ wind blow through me, you remind from where I came I am born from thee and Spirit is my name these rivers run through me from deep within the ground I remember this dance as the ancient drum beat sounds que me cura, que me guía , que me llena con la Vida. me cura, que me guía , poderosa medicina. me cura, en sus brazos no hay duda que me ama Mama. I call upon the spirit of the horse, with you I know freedom I ask for the guidance of my guardians that walk beside me I summon the earth, air, fire and water; to you I shall return to our mother the earth, my life is a prayer, my breath your eternal song al gran misterio, ‘te amo, a ti estoy llamando’ Tunkasila, te amo, a ti estoy llamando’ I call you, I know you hear me I feel you breathing through me… I call you, I know you hear me I feel you breathing through me…

Come Closer 05:36
The earth says, “I will hold you, just come closer” I will hold you, just come closer” tears upon my altar the morning’s cold I shiver have courage now take shelter spring is in the air is warming all is wakening arms are opening wide I turn to the earth and pray ‘may I always know what I came here for’ the forest calls, my grandmothers once walked this ancient way and I know in my bones I know this from before I’m coming home, I know in my bones I know this from before I’m coming home, I know in my bones I know this from before what a precious gift, how could I turn away? I’ll treasure all you teach me, no matter what color or whatever the shade I love this learning remind me to trust when gone is my faith for all is but fleeting the wheel keeps on turning as long grows the days I turn to the earth and pray… when the bow is pulled taught is when the arrow springs forth x 2 I love this yearning, I love how it feels do what you will with me, do what you will… do what you will with me, do what you will do what you will.

Seashore 04:14
Poetry came in search of me, I don’t know where it came from but I wrote the first line my nonsense, my wisdom, my blessing and my shadow, my courage, my fear, my confusion and my clarity as I breathe in the sea shore to ponder on my mind I surrender to my body now, my voice, you’re my tide as I breathe in the sea shore to purify my mind I find I hear your voice it’s you I adore as I whisper my goodbye and creep underneath the night I can’t ignore this voice that is calling me from her beauty I won’t turn to hide wash me up upon the tide just see me throw my arms up to her glory as I breathe in the seashore…. she calls me, she calls me, she calls to me…

All Things 04:58
Take me to the center where I’m only touched by truth take me far beyond this ocean ever moving oh, the flock of geese are heading off to warmer shores I know if I follow them, to my wildness I'll be lost I am a shape shifter of miracles I am a creator giving birth to all I am the silence that I sense within I am the preacher and the one who’s listening I am forgiveness and the forgiving I am this beating heart and all I carry within me I am the spirit of my forefathers and my children I carry a song line that’s never been forgotten I am the roots and the fruit that’s ripening I am the thunder and I am the lightening I am the hunted and the hunt that ever runs I am the moon turning its lifetime round the sun if I am all things, and all things unto me then I will breathe and speak and be only Beauty...'

Tracking 04:16
I drive away down wandering lanes by candlelight I contemplate I’ve come here to find some space oh, drink in the air to breathe out my cobwebs I’m lighting the dark of these shadows away for I’m off, off to run with the wolves to hunt what my soul needs for food I’m off tracking, to run with the wolves oh this freedom I seek is in solitude freedom and solitude is all I need what is it that you seek? for I am sure there’s a goddess inside of me time and again I know how she speaks oh, winds come to catch me now for I have no idea of these ripples around me for I’m off, off to run with the wolves to hunt what my soul needs for food I’m off tracking, to run with the wolves oh, peace I’d love to know you now silence you’re such a beautiful thing peace I know you now silence you beautiful thing, I love to know you now peace I feel you within; I feel I’ve found you now silence you beautiful thing, I love how I know you now peace I feel you within; I know I’ve found you now I’ve always known you now.
11.
You know where you’re going listen how the silence calls just follow you’re inner knowing for in the heart you’ll find it all just follow the light of your soul follow the light of your soul just follow the light of your soul Follow the light of you soul your glowing soul is a flaming fire haoe courage to dance within your flames Oh spirit never tires to whisper the sound of your name Just follow the light of your soul… Ffr you shine so bright, Holy Spirit, beautiful soul just trust in your light, you know your way, you’re coming home for you shine so bright, Holy Spirit, beautiful soul just trust in your light, you know your way, you’re coming home just follow the light….
