Be Gentle — Heather Houston

This song came through right after our first big Sisters in Harmony Retreat in the Summer of 2022. I was feeling so tender and expanded and wanted to remain in that post retreat bliss bubble for longer. The “shoulds” were beginning to creep in… “I should unpack my car, I should start some laundry, I should go jump in the ocean, I should….” But all I really wanted to do was lie in the shade on my deck and feel it all, to integrate it all, to stay connected to the powerful energy of love in my heart. I imagined that some of the women from the retreat were having a similar experience. When I tuned in to the community, this song started emerging for us. “Be gentle with yourself.” Give yourself total permission to do whatever you desire… just for the rest of the day at least. 😉

Lyrics:
Be gentle with yourself
Please be gentle with yourself

Simplify — Anne Woodward

Our very own Sisters in Harmony Song Leader Training graduate Anne shares this song with us:

A medicine song for those times when we find ourselves on overwhelm. Simplify: breathe, let go, and create spaciousness.

Lyrics:

Breathe in, let go,
Embrace the flow,
Simplify.

Breathe in, let go,
Let Spirit flow,
Synchronize.

Sing my way home to love.
Sing my way home to peace.
Sing my way home to love.
Sing my way home to me.

Mother Waters — Heather Houston

Offered in utter devotion to our Mother Waters. This one poured through me as I knelt down on the banks of the Tuolumne River to express my gratitude. To be sung with reverence and devotion.

Lyrics:

Oh Mother Waters
Thank you for your healing song
Oh Mother Waters
Here I know
that I belong

You Don’t Know Till You Know — Heather Houston

How many times have we made up stories and run with them, only to find out that they were untrue? Anyone? Okay, maybe it’s just me, and oh boy have I worked myself into some agony, some anxiety, some fear, some disbelief! I get better at catching myself sooner as I grow more hairs of wisdom on my head. And this song really helps. 🙂

This is a super fun and easy quick teach!

Lyrics:

Part 1:
You don’t till you know
so don’t run and go
making up
any stories

Part 2:
No, you don’t know
till you know,
you know?

Part 3:
You don’t know
if it’s true
you know?

We Only Have Today — Heather Houston

One Sunday morning, in the midst of covid craziness, the Reverend Deborah Johnson preached: “We only have today, we only have right now.” And then this song poured out. It’s a reminder for me to be present with every precious moment in these rapidly changing times.

Lyrics:

We only have today
We only have right now
This precious moment
I surrender and allow

I Forgive Myself – Heather Houston

When we forgive ourselves and others, we set ourselves free. This song arrived in my life near Valentine’s Day and my Birthday. I always like to tune in to forgiveness as an act of self-love in February, and this year, I was blessed with a song. May it invite you to set yourself a little more free!

Lyrics:

I forgive myself
For all the things,
I did and did not do
to cause me pain.
I forgive myself
for all the times,
I did not stay true,
and was not aligned,
with my highest self,
and my greatest good,
now I’m letting go
to get free.

Soft breeze
Quiet night

Don chit dit di deet don

Dom dom dom dom
Dom dom dom dom
