KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOVE WATER

During this Holy Day season, as we celebrate the Dead and the archetypes of Scorpio, I marvel at the timing of this songs release. I wrote Lifeguard nearly ten years ago after almost drowning in the ocean. It's incredibly difficult to keep your head above water during these massive shifts in consciousness. My intention is to keep going deeper in my healing, to use my voice, stand up for my needs, and to not feel guilty or obligated to anyone else but me. To challenge myself to face my shadows and embrace my inner child's need for nurturing and acknowledgment, this is a daily practice that will continue throughout my life.In my practice of giving what I can and taking what I need, I've had to learn how to reserve my energy and take time to recalibrate. I give a lot of energy on the road, every day. It takes a toll and in the past year I've had to find ways to protect my spirit when it is weary. I have a high standard of work for myself, but even this year with the touring and recording schedule, I have forced myself to take time at home to recalibrate. The worker bee in me says get back to work, but the Cancer Rising in me says stay home and rest, the world needs you in top shape!

FANS INTENTIONS

My intention is to stay present with that comes. No more hiding behind work, booze, all the things we use to stay asleep. I am here to learn, grow, love through compassion and understanding of myself and others.

Gloria

My intention is to speak up and share my story of surviving domestic violence so that other women know they’re not alone, and to help those women begin to thrive.

Siobhan

Washington State

My intention is to be brave. To not worry about consequences of things I wanna do and to push fear aside so it doesn’t stop me from exploring, living life to the fullest, loving people. I want to be braver overall. Realizing that life is too short to worry about repercussions or things not falling into place like I want. The only way I will know if something works or not is if I try. Be brave.

This most recent new moon I set the intention to wake up early every day (even if it’s 10 minutes early to do yoga, meditate, journal, read my oracle cards, whatever I need to do/have time to do. It’s been going very well so far!

Be still more. This world has more voices than your own, more voices than the human. And they have something to tell, something to teach. Be still. Meet. Respect. Bow. Surrender. Life wants to work with you, not against you. So stop talking. Start listening.

To remain strong despite the pain. Learn by the wolf, work hard, tend to my cub in fierceness and tenderness. Always play with my pack, dance laugh sing tell crappy jokes who cares. And finally to take time away from the pack to sing my own song to the moon.
