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.

The Earth Holds Me – Heather Houston

For the moments we need to feel held and connected – to be able to sink in and feel resourced. I use the lyrics earth, sea, tree, sky, stars, but please use as a zipper song and invite yourself or your participants to bring their ideas in to the mix.

Lyrics:

The earth holds me
so I can hold others,
yes I can hold others,
these arms are strong.

In this version I add in:
Sea, tree, sky, stars, sun, etc…

Sisters of the Moon – Heather Houston

An affirmation of who we are as we weave the web of love across the world. May we continue to rise together! I usually teach only the melody of this song and just have fun singing it!  🙂

Lyrics:

We are sisters of the moon
And daughters of the sun
We are mothers of the world
Our voices they are one

We are lovers of the earth
And guardians of the land
We are weavers of the dream
Together we are standing

We are healers
We are teachers
We are dreamers
We are revealers
Of the TRUTH

We are sisters of the moon
And daughters of the sun
We are mothers of the world
Our voices they are one

We are lovers of the earth
And guardians of the land
We are weavers of the dream
Together we are standing

Dom dom dom dom

Wind – Heather Houston

Wind By Heather Houston

This beautiful chant swept through me one magical Spring day in my little garden paradise. The melody captivated my spirit, and before I knew it I was in the house recording what I heard and eight different harmony parts emerged. It’s a super rough cut, but I’m delighted to share. My voice, in the raw, completely spontaneous, no edits, no re-dos… just the spirit of the wind singing through me…

You are welcome to sing and share, please do not record.

Lyrics:
Wind purify me
Help me to see
the way to my freedom

Bring Me Little Water Sylvie – Lead Belly

Bring Me Little Water Sylvie
by Lead Belly

When performing this song, Lead Belly would often tell his audiences that the song was about his uncle Bob Ledbetter, who worked out on the fields plowing the soil. When he got thirsty, he would call for his wife, Sylvie, to bring him some water.

This song is in the public domain.

Lyrics:
Bring me little water Sylvie
Bring me little water now
Bring me little water Sylvie
Every little once in a while

Bring it in a bucket Sylvie
Bring it in a bucket now
Bring it in a bucket every once in a while

Silvie come a running
Bucket in my hand
I will bring a little water
Fast as I can

Bring me little water Sylvie
Bring me little water now
Bring me little water Sylvie
Every little once in a while

Can’t you see me coming
Can’t you see me now
I will bring a little water
Every once in a while
