Awaken Your Sacred Voice ~ Pregnancy, Birthing and Beyond

womb_connection

The song of my precious unborn began coming through me more fully yesterday morning as I awoke. As I sang the melody, I felt its significance and silently asked, “Is it you?” My confirmation was the little dance I felt inside my womb.

This Soul song connection happened intuitively during the pregnancy with my first child, and it was some time later when I discovered the tradition of the Himba tribe of Africa (most reported, but is a tradition in some other tribal cultures as well)…each child having their own unique song, discovered and taught to the village by the Mother, so that in times of celebration or dis-ease, the community could sing that Soul’s song, helping them remember their true vibration.

Whether he is not feeling well, or I am helping him ease back into the world from slumber, I have seen the way my son lights up each time I sing “his song”. I feel a great calling to help not only keep this tradition alive but thriving. What a beautiful way to deeply connect with our children, heart and Soul, and what a wonderful way to embrace true connection and support within our communities, throughout our lives.

EXPECTING PARENTS ~ Whether you wish to conceive or are already along in your pregnancy, I would love to help you connect with your own innate ability to discover and sing your child’s Soul song. It would be my honor to assist you privately or by attending and sharing Soul song ceremony at your Blessing Way.

PREGNANCY AND BIRTHING PROFESSIONALS ~ I now offer a group experience for expectant parents, “Awaken Your Sacred Voice ~ Pregnancy, Birthing and Beyond”. Together, in a safe and sacred space, we honor each other and the journey of parenthood…from discovering your child’s Soul song to the use of singing and sounding to assist in birthing and beyond.

If any of this resonates, connect with me today!

~ Jess ❤

“You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. You may feel a little warbly at the moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home.”

It is time for frame drum singers to unite in a chorus of beauty and harmony. Please come with your frame drum with the intention of singing for yourself, for community and for the Earth. 

All who are called to be a part of this resonating sound are welcome…but must get a drum and be courageous enough to sound & sing out your heart (we do have a few extra drums if you haven’t gotten one yet, but plan to). If you need some love and support in doing this…you will find this is a safe place to explore.

The intention will be to expand the frame drum singing ensemble “The Muses Of Inanna” that started last fall. We will make ourselves available for live performances and possibly recording in the days ahead. Small groups or large, we will be ready to sing when we are called into service.

I hope you are called and come!

Let me know if there are any questions. It is time to SING!

WHEN? Wednesday, April 23, 2014

WHERE? Berry Hill Community Center, 404 East Iris Drive, Nashville, TN 37204

The 12 Children of the Light: An Astrological Tale

children-of-Light_OMTimes

a divine breadcrumb trail led me here this morning. be sure to read the end as well as your sign. there is no need to be overwhelmed by the seeming enormity of what lies before us. we are not islands. that is why we have each other, why we are meant to connect, not in competition, but to help provide the piece that is ours to give and surrender to the next to carry it forth. we each carry an important task and gift. it takes great wisdom and courage to know when to act and when it is time to step back and allow the flow.
