WIKU: Sun Child Returning Part 1


As you may know from my recent email, my new album WIKU (Sun Child Returning) is here!  What better time to tell you about the songs and about the meaning of "Wiku".  (As I got into writing this newsletter, it became apparent that it was getting too long so I will have to do it in two parts.)

 

It all began a few years ago in deep meditation and ceremony.  The focus of my intention was purification and a return to the innocence and light-heartedness of a child while at the same time nourishing and respecting the wisdom that life teaches and that has deepened through my journey.

 

The spirit world gave a symbol (below) and gave it a name.  "Wiku" is a Lakota word.  The original context means "sun returning". However in the context used here, it means "Sun Child Returning".  Lakota language works that way. The symbol figure is facing left.  In the symbol you see the belly "pregnant with life" and the arm extended back which means "letting go of the past".  This total surrendering of past and embracing the life before you is how one returns to innocence.  It cannot truly be done without letting go of this particular sacrifice...the past...all of it!  When this is done, you are then able to be fully present in the now.  You are free.

 

This album is recorded at 432hz frequency and the full dynamic range has been preserved.  Since these are both broad subjects I will go in to that further at another time. 

 

 


I will go through the songs and give you insight into their coming into being. But first I want to begin a little out of order because I want to share with you the story behind my new music video, "Crossing the Event Horizon".

 

Crossing the Event Horizon - A few years ago I came upon an eight hour video presentation by physicist Nassim Haramein that he had given at the Rogue Valley Metaphysical Library in Oregon.  I was absolutely captivated by his work and his findings.  I watched this presentation countless times...just couldn't get enough.  I was also deeply touched by Nassim's unassuming humility, his sense of humor and his devotion to the truth. He brings the sense of the Divine and the understanding of the importance of stillness and meditation into the work he does. 

 

I wanted to do something that would be supportive to his efforts because I can see the profound contribution to humanity that he and his colleagues are making.  So I asked the universe if it was meant to be, that I could somehow write a song that would express the ideas that had moved me so deeply in this presentation and other presentations that followed.  The intention being to help in raising awareness through music and hopefully attracting support for his foundation, The Resonance Project.  The universe responded! The song came with ease.  I was so happy about that.  It is my prayer that this song and music video will be supportive in the way it was intended.  Thank you Nassim Haramein, Dr. Elizabeth A. Rauscher, Ph.D. Dr. Michael T. Hyson, Ph.D. and all of the Resonance Project Team.

 

Sometimes the general public may not be interested in studying physics, but they may however, embrace the essence of the message when it is expressed in an art form.  I am asking that any of you who have websites, blogs or facebook pages where this video would seem appropriate, to please add it to your page and share this message with your followers and friends.  So if you haven't seen "Crossing the Event Horizon" yet, I do hope you enjoy it.  I would love to hear your feedback so send me a note if you want :-)

   



Oaya Chant - This chant was given to me in the dreamtime by the whale people.  They made me aware in a dream that they wished to sing with me.  I didn't know at all how I would do that.  I am not near an ocean and didn't have any connection to accomplish this. But they showed me the way.  It was a gift from them and I am so thankful to these my beautiful relations.

 

Their request to sing with me had to do with the unity of my voice with theirs...with their song...both together conveying a message.  I don't know what the message is in words.  I know it in vibration and I know that it is being transmited through the frequencies of "OAYA".  But it is not meant for me to say too much about it.  Otherwise my words would just get in the way.  To understand the message through your own perception and intuition, you must experience the sound...experience it in your heart chakra.  You will know what you need to know...it is done...it is so.

 


Weave a New Dream - Sometimes songs just appear.  I find myself singing and in the middle of singing realize that it is something I have never sung before.  This was such a song.  I was singing the chant part. As I have always said, my job is just "to show up".  So there I was; this song was being born.  I was dancing around the room making up the lyrics.and having a lot of fun :-)  Actually I can say I had more fun creating and recording this album than any I have ever done.  It was just pure joy!  This song is a waltz melody and when I sing it live, I just love to watch the audience swaying dreamily from side to side with the music.

 

 


All of Life Is a Circle - A similar story.  I found myself singing it.  I just love that!  The recording is simple and to me, one of the best.  I just love this song.  I have already used this one for audience participation in singing and dancing together.  Now that's what music is for :-)  Dancing in a circle and being that very life we are singing about.

 


Wiku - There are three songs on this album that relate directly to the title.  This is the first one.  Do you remember that song by Cher called "I Believe"?  That effect that was used on her vocal came to be known as the "Cher Effect".  It became very popular and honestly a bit over used.  However, I had never tried it and I just had to do that once in my life (LOL) so here it is...and yes, it was fun!

 

   

Divine Will - Now here's a song with a story...a very personal story.  Many years ago (about 12 yrs.) I had a dream.  In this dream Jesus (or Wanikiya as we call him in Lakota) was talking with me in a small village somewhere in the Middle East (I really don't recall specifics on the exact location).  He told me "You must die to the images of yourself to be who you truly are."  This was a profound message that has had many many layers of meaning over the years and brought much healing.

 

In the same dream Wanikiya sent me to a pool where he said I was to go to meet him and other ascended masters like him.  When I went to Israel last year, I was asked if there were particular places I wanted to go.  I hadn't talked a lot about this dream but I knew if it were possible that this pool was a real place then I must tell them about the dream.  I described the pool; a small enclosed pool with steps.  It was then that I learned that what I was describing is called a mikvah (sometimes spelled mikveh).  A mikvah is a pool used in Jewish tradition for spiritual cleansing and purification.  I learned that sometimes the mikvah is used to help Jewish women in healing from all kinds of abuse.  So we see here the connection to Wiku; letting go of the past and purifying to return oneself to a state of innocence.  This was very significant to me although only Jewish women can use a Mikvah and I am not Jewish. But the signifiance relating to the meaning in the dream goes beyond the restrictions of religious practices to something deeper; purification, releasing the past, returning to a state of innocence and living always in the present is how one elevates to a place of mastery.  This is true for any being willing to follow this path.

 

One of the places I visited in Israel was the Qumran Caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.  The ruins of the Essenes settlement near the caves were filled with ancient mikvahs. The Essenes were ascetics and as such paid great attention to ritual bathing and purity.  Most of these mikvahs were roped off but I did find one that I was able to go down into and just sit and meditate for a short while.  The message was clear that it was important on my return home to connect with water (more on that in a few moments).  Here are some pictures.  Just click on the image to enlarge and see the description for each:

Now before I left for Israel, I knew that only Jewish women were allowed in mikvahs.  However, I knew of an old  Native American sacred pool nearby.  It was a small secluded natural pool at the source of a warm springs.  So I decided to go there to prepare myself spiritually for my journey.  It was a beautiful experience.  Then upon my return home from Israel, on the shuttle ride back to Taos, I met a woman who lived in Israel and who was on her way to Taos.  It turns out that she lived just a few miles from the Kibbutz where I had been staying.  There were only three or four of us on that shuttle so for one of them to be someone who lived just a few minutes from where I had just been was extraordinary!  She was also trained in a special water rebirthing process.  I told her about the pool and about my experience and we really hit it off.  So we returned to the sacred pool and she took me through this very special water "ceremony". It was a very beautiful experience that I shall never forget and a perfect conclusion to my sojourn. 

 

Continuing on with the story of "Divine Will": In a Lakota ceremony a few years ago, Wanikiya came into this ceremony with another message.  That message was "Let go of the sacrifices. Stand up. Raise your spirit, and go live."  At that particular place in my life, this was another profound message.  It came in a time when I was still recovering from a serious illness.  I was so moved by this message that I later went to my piano and just quietly sat there...waiting...  While "just showing up"...(that's my job), I put my fingers on the keys and just "let them play" shall we say, not thinking it out, just being.  Then the words began to flow along with the notes.  It all just flowed.  The messages Wanikiya had given were woven into the song like a delicate tapestry and this song, "Divine Will" was born.  This will be the second featured song below. 

 

This was a deeply personal story but with the arrival of this song it seems the messages are meant for more than just myself.  Part of my sacrifice is to allow it to be bigger than me by sharing it with you.  May you be blessed by this song in whatever way is appropriate.          

 

I hope you have enjoyed learning more about this musical journey.  We will continue on in the next issue.


Much love and blessings.

 

 

 

 



This Issue Featuring:


Divine Will

From  WIKU    



This song will be available for listening until the next newsletter issue

(approx. December 1st, 2013)




DIVINE WILL

from the album "WIKU" (Sun Child Returning)


Artist Note:  Over the years, my relationship with "Wanikiya" (Lakota word used for Jesus") has transformed from the ideas of early fundamental Christian upbringing into a very real relationship with a Divine Being of Light.  Messages that have been given have been sparing of words but the words that were used have been portals into a much deeper understanding.  This song is an expression of that journey of transformation.  In its creation I have discovered that it transmits a healing energy of its own.  May you be blessed by it.  The words below in "quotes" are some of the messages that were given.  Perhaps they hold deeper meaning for you too.

 

 


“You must die to the images of yourself

To truly be who you are.”

These were the words that he spoke to me in a dream.

A message from the heart...

of *Iesvs, Iesvs, Iesvs, Iesvs.


Divine will, divine will,

“Let go of the sacrifices.”

Divine will, divine will,

“Let go of the sacrifices.”


“Stand up. Raise your spirit and go live.”

“Stand up. Raise your spirit and go live.”


Divine will, divine will,

“Let go of the sacrifices.”

Divine will, divine will,

“Let go of the sacrifices.”


Aahhh...


Divine will, divine will,

“Let go of the sacrifices.”

Divine will, divine will,

“Let go of the sacrifices.”



Divine Will...

Divine Will...
