Emergence

I emerge from my cocoon with courageous and capable wings. Where will they carry me? That’s the beauty of the journey…the excitement of mystery. Of one thing I am now certain. I trust that wherever the winds of change blow, it will follow the direction of my heart’s true yearning, and for that, I am infinitely grateful.

Sing Myself AWAKE ~ Days 10, 11 & 12

‪#‎singmyselfawake‬ for 40 days with Miranda Rondeau…

Day 10 ~ On our sunset drive to market, I sang a song of self-love…so grateful for my life.

Day 11 ~ While enjoying some early morning sharing @ my Mom’s, I felt my late Grandmother’s (Mamo’s) presence. She has always been an inspiration to me and is now one of my main spirit guides. I sang a song of love and thanks to her and all the ancestors.

Day 12 ~ Sang li’l Abner up this morning with “his” song and an extra spontaneous melody of love. Nothing like his smile!

Sing Myself AWAKE ~ Days 8 & 9

My spontaneous vocal offerings for the 2nd annual “Sing Myself AWAKE” for 40 days with Miranda Rondeau…

Day 8 ~ I sang a song of love and gratitude to a beautiful Grandmother tree while my son was playing at the park. Everywhere we walked, there were feathers. We offered thanks for nature’s gifts and brought a few home for our altars.

Day 9 ~ I sang an infusion of love and joy into the bowl of cereal I made my son. My reward: a smile, a long hug and an I love you…priceless!

Sing Myself AWAKE ~ Days 6 and 7

My spontaneous vocal offerings for Sing Myself AWAKE with Miranda Rondeau…

Day 6 ~ I shared a spontaneous song with my son. Intention: FUN! It was in a flash moment, so no video was captured.

Day 7 ~ After playing with new laptop video methods today (none of which worked out), I got out my trusty camera and created a vocal offering for the joy of manifestation for all beings…inspired by this 40 day journey.

Sing Myself AWAKE ~ Day 5

My spontaneous vocal offering for the 2nd annual “Sing Myself AWAKE” for 40 days with Miranda Rondeau…

I am a bit low-tech, without a smart phone to easily take video johnny on the spot, and making one with my camera is a bit of a production, but since this began, I have found myself with more and more spontaneous opportunities to share vocal offerings. The more I sing, the more beauty manifests in my life.

Yesterday, for DAY 5, I sang a song of peace (as invited) and gratitude (since I was singing in the space I am soon to begin my offerings). Blessings abound, and I know “Sing Myself Awake for 40 days” has been a huge catalyst. Infinite thanks and returns to you, Miranda!

Sing Myself AWAKE ~ Days 3 and 4

My spontaneous vocal offerings for the 2nd annual “Sing Myself AWAKE” for 40 days with Miranda Rondeau…

Day 3 ~ was busy and beautiful. A recording didn’t happen, but as I washed and massaged my dancing feet in the final hour of the day, I connected with Source and sang a sweet melody as the water drained away on its journey.

Day 4 ~ Once again, not captured on video, but I got the most amazing gift today after some SUP (stand up paddle board) fun…to sing and drum over three amazing women. Intentions (set by them) ~ love, meta (kindness, compassion) and courage. We each hugged afterward and after the final offering, I was given a beautiful message of encouragement, we both cried and a group hug commenced. AND I was offered a space to do my practice. What a magnificent day! I am even more on fire with passion for my path of service.

This magic morning ~

Rising Sun by Jess Bray
Rising Sun by Jess Bray

My alarm clock (which I never use, except for time reference) mysteriously went off early this morning.  I glanced out my window at the gentle glow of the rising sun, beckoning me outside.  Following my guidance, I made my way outside to the light, soaking in the day’s first rays with my gazing eyes.  I sang a song of thanks to the sun, for its precious and faithful, life giving beams.

Called to my front yard, I went through the house, grabbed a pillow for my bum and entered the sacred realm of my wild front entry.  As I settled under the sheltering canopy of bamboo, wisteria vine and what I like to call my bodhi bush, thoughtfully carved out on one side like a cavern, I listened and I watched.  Light was the sun and light was the mood.  The tiny dew drop worlds glistening on waking vegetation.  Such soft, sweet energies to behold and rejoice this day.

Centered in my heart, overflowing with love throughout my field and beyond, I began to sing ~ with the redbird I know so well, coming out of the forest to accompany me ~ with the moth, delicately gracing my skin ~ with the tiny mouse, curiously and carefully scurrying from the rock before me ~ with the turtle I discovered under the far side of the bush, who reached his head out farther once I began offering my voice his direction ~ with the two love doves stopping by on foot to say hello, flying off together with their melodious coos ~ with the ravens, on foot and in air, who came closer to greet my offering ~ and with the clever mockingbirds who call my yard home, voicing their concerns over the closeness of the ravens.  I sang a melody of thanks to Earth and to life ~ animal, vegetable, mineral.  Closing my eyes, looking within, I saw soft, gentle, white light showering from my crown, cascading down through my entire being and gracing the planet and all of existence through my deep roots.

As I sit here and place words on the magic of my morning, I hear the sounds of a small songbird, with its mighty voice calling out as if to say … keep singing, keep offering, keep sharing.  We are all bound by love as the one pure heart of existence.

Bliss~full day to you, Soul Family.

May 18, 2014: HeartSong Collective ~ Sing the Change

art by Ted Wallace

Thanks to the world of quantum physics, we are coming to know that frequency (sound) is the basis of the entire fabric of existence.  We have also come to know that our consciousness (where we place our focus and intention) really does effect matter (the seemingly physical world around us).

One cold January day I received a vision.  I saw passionate Souls gathering together in public places all over the world to lovingly and consciously co-create the change we wish to see in the world through organic, intentional singing and sounding.  I heard, “Start where you are,”  and thus, “HeartSong Collective ~ Sing the Change” is born in Music City Nashville, Tennessee.

It’s time to come together in the power of collective co-creation to raise the vibrations of Music City and beyond with our “intentional” voices and sacred instruments!

Please help to spread the word about these free events far and wide!  Together we can move mountains!  I can’t wait to see you there!

When?  Sunday, May 18th ~ noon – 1pm

Where?  Bicentennial Mall (@ the center of the bells), if you’re local.  OR  Join in where you are!

Intention?  As we sing and sound, hold the feeling and vision of personal liberation for all BEings.

 “I have always looked at God’s Creations as beautiful, but today, at 62 years old, is the first time I have understood that I am one with all of God’s Creation.  I am not above or separate from anything.”

New Year, Super New Moon, Authentically Empowered New YOU

This New Year, this Super New Moon, I’m not going to share yet another “report” from somewhere, telling you what planets are in alignment, what to expect and what it is that you should do to ring in the days, weeks and months ahead.  Instead, I want to encourage and empower YOU to allow YOURself the presence of each moment.

Within the presence of each moment, within yourself, are all the tools, gifts and wisdom you’ll ever need to prepare, enlighten and guide you in each new moment of the new year and all the new years ahead.  There’s nothing complicated or analytical about it, and there’s no need to plan ahead.  It’s really just as simple as Loving and Trusting yourself enough to be here right now, and continue being here right now through each and every moment, allowing the breath of spirit fully in (refreshing and enlivening you) and fully out (cleansing you), without attachment.

All that comes into your field of experience has been drawn to you by your energetic alignment with it.  Living fully within each moment, you’re able to sense the messages and gifts you’ve drawn into your experience, so that you may expand deeper, higher and wider than the moment before.  All the elements, animals, minerals, plants, humans, spirits and energies your highest self attracts have messages/gifts for you, helping to guide you to the next step on your true divine path.  Listen from your heart, trust your intuition, and the guidance they offer will be revealed, propelling you into the next moment of your magical journey.

Each being in all of existence carries with them the wisdom of the whole.  Each being is a unique Soul manifestation of Source, who from the non-physical perspective, chose this body/earth experience for expansion of Spirit, and to be a vehicle for Source creation.  Recognize and honor the amazing-ness of YOU.  Only YOU carry your particular perspective and song, and only YOU can create and sing in the specific way you do.  Embody, trust and BE the strength, power, gift of insight and knowing that you carry, and instead of looking to others to show you the way, look within and show yourself.

Here’s to fully embracing and BEaming YOU in each moment of the new year and beyond.  Happy 2014 Soul Family!

InJoy & Infinite Love,

Jess Bray ♥

A Story of Gratitude

Jessquote_wingsofgratitude

One evening I gazed at the setting sun, enamored with the beauty of its rays beaming through the forest behind my house. With all encompassing gratitude for the moment, I began to hear the symphony of Creation. For just a moment, clear as a bell, I could hear the song of the forest. At once my excitement and thoughts ceased the sounds. Once again, connecting to the deep feelings of gratitude and all encompassing Love at the experience, for a moment, the symphony returned.

I learned an instrumental key to unlocking the magic of Creation that day…when I am fully in my heart space, emanating nothing but pure genuine ecstatic bliss in gratitude for the beauty of existence in the moment, time-space is slowed and all is revealed.

May the Spirit of gratitude shine through us each moment for all of our days!  Happy Thanksgiving Soul Family!
