Divine Mystery by Heather Houston

This one flowed through for a room full of women entrepreneurs. It’s been a favorite for many ever since. A beautiful layer song.

Lyrics:

Oh I am opening up for a dance with Divine Mystery
Oh I am trusting the path that’s unfolding before me with ease

Just let go now, trust the flow,
Just let go now, then you’ll know.

Right on time now, I’ve arrived
Right on time now, I’m aligned.

Wave of Women – Heather Houston

A powerful song inspired by the 2019 Women’s march. The theme was “A Wave of Women.” After the experience of singing to a sea of women and supporters of women on that day at our local Santa Cruz march, this song flowed through that very afternoon.

Lyrics:

We are a wave of women moving across the land
We are a wave of women rising to take a stand
for our brothers and sisters,
our daughters and sons,
for the Earth and her creatures,
we’re all chosen ones.

Full Moon Chant by Heather Houston

This chant flowed through me one magical full moon night while having a soak in my outdoor bathtub. Luxurious!

Lyrics:

In the light of the full moon I am love
Offering my prayers to rise above
the thoughts and the fears that hold me down
while thriving on this earth
as she spins around.
In the light of the full moon I am peace
Offering my heart to be released
from the things that no longer serve my soul.
Knowing now that I am whole.

Rising Strong by Heather Houston

Inspired by the youth in our nation who are rising strong! Dedicated to the people who are committed to all of the powerful movements that are happening in our nation. This song flowed through shortly after the Parkland school shooting happened.

The Monday Morning Song by Heather Houston

This fun little ditty flowed through on a Monday morning (big surprise, I know) when I was pressuring myself to get the whole week’s worth of tasks completed on Monday morning. It also works well to sing “January” in the month of January. Enjoy!

I like to get everyone moving around and mixing their voices in the center.

Lyrics:

Part 1: You don’t have to get everything done on Monday morning, take a deep breath and tune in to your heart.

Part 2: Don’t take yourself so seriously, lighten the load, there’s beauty to see.

Part 3: Let it go, and learn to delegate.

Sto Mi E Milo from Macedonia

My a cappella quartet, SIRENZ, and my Yala Lati Women’s choir loves to sing this beautifully uplifting song from Macedonia! With my song circles, I will just teach the first verse. A song of hope and a vision of normalcy in a war torn part of the world. Tight harmonies and a 7/8 rhythm keep it interesting. I learned this song from Kitka, who learned it from Ethel Raim.

Translation:

Oh, how I’d like to have shop is Struga! To have a shop in Struga where I can sit at the front of the store and watch the Struga girls go by with their colorful water jugs on the way to the cold stream to meet with their friends there.

Lyrics:

Sto mi e milo, milo i drago
Vo Struga grada, mamo, Dukan da imam
Le le varai, mome, mome Kalino
Vo Struga grada, mamo, Dukan da imam

Na kepencite, mamo, da sedam,
Struskite momi, mamo, momo da gledam
Le le varai mome, mome Kalino,
Stuskite momi, mamo, momo da gledam

Koga na voda, voda mi odat
So tija stomni, mamo, Stomni sareni
Le le varai, mome, mome Kalino,
So tija stomni, mamo, stomni sareni

Na ovoj izvor, izvor studeni,
Tam da se sdruski, mamo, sdruski soberat
Le le varan, mome, mome Kalino,
Tam da se sdruski, mamo,
Sdruski soberat.
