Introducing “Shanti”, from the album, “In The Light of Jewels.”
The track “Shanti” opens with two voices chanting “Om Shanti Om”. The music swells and the listener feels enveloped in what feels like the dawning of a universe. As the feminine and masculine voices harmonize and echo each other we feel a peaceful calm and we are ready to embark on a healing journey. “Om” is the original sound of all life encompassing the past, present, and future. “Shanti” describes the peace one finds in the depths of the soul. The deep peace that fills our body, mind, and everything around us. This mantra was chosen to prepare us to welcome and activate the sixth chakra, Anja, or “Third Eye”. Located in the center of the forehead, the third eye is our seat of intuition and acts as our center of wisdom and consciousness. The feminine energy of the Anja chakra is embodied in Shanti, who is the goddess of peace. As the chanting fades we are led into a beautiful meditation by our guide. Her powerful and nurturing voice leads us to heal through love.
“We begin our quest on a journey through a vision
The trilogy of life
Divine love, guidance, and inspiration”
“We walk the path becoming
Into today’s vastness”
“Where love echoes in the winds today”
Our guide leaves us as she whispers in Spanish, I love you, my dear, I love you more, divine light, inviting us find each other in the nostalgic song, “Whispering Winds” of Love. This romantic song sung in Spanish features many instruments including the piano and flute. As the notes play with each other in the wind and the lyricist’s resonant voice fills our senses, we are brought on the next part of our healing journey. We learn that sometimes it is better to let go of what we are attached to. As the pain of releasing fades, we have room to experience freedom and liberation, and an opening in our hearts.
“A kiss of sun in your garden
A cold morning
“The snow falls and has to erase
Long roads where you will walk”
“I only have your silence
That whispers in the wind”
As the song closes, the voice of our guide whispers, “It’s better to let you go”, echoing the changing season’s whispering winds which caress our souls, reminding us that we have sweet memories that warm our hearts for eternity.
