🌹 🎶 The Voice of Awakening 🎶🌹 On this month's episode of Vocal Revolution (video below - or listen on Apple Podcasts) I talked about the power of music and meditation to awaken us more fully to life with Michael Doiley- DJ/ Producer, Life-Coach, Speaker and author of Learn to Meditate: the Secret to Lasting Inner Peace. We'd love to hear from you: Do leave comments and share your thoughts!
1. Music is Profound If you play the right music that’s the best thing you can do for people and its something that crosses international barriers - Michael Doiley In our conversation Michael talks about how music is at the core of our existence, in the rhythms of language and our bodies. Driven by his mission to awaken the spirit and get it dancing, he shares stories of his experiences of music and of his work as an international DJ playing for a star studded list of celebrities including Kylie, Will I am, Diana Ross and Mariah Carey. He shares how he has seen the power of music transform people - from clubbers on the dance floor to young people in our local community.
2. Humanity awakening to itself We are powerful...We are more creative than we think - Michael Doiley. Immensely sad though this year has been, it has given us a chance to learn and given our planet a chance to breathe. It has forced us to adapt, innovate and create - to claim and use the freedom of our minds whilst we are outwardly restricted. It has brought oppressed voices to the fore - people protesting and breaking free of divisive socially conditioned limitations. The Black Lives Matter protests last year and the powerful uprising of women worldwide following Sarah Everard's brutal murder have highlighted many layers of social injustice. Taking to the streets is only one form of action- the greater invitation is to take a stand for life, for white supremacy, misogyny, racism, all forms of hate are anti-life, as Layla F Saad says so beautifully in her latest newsletter:
We must stand for life. We must stand for the safety, dignity, well-being, joy, and thriving of us all.
We must affirm life. Knowing that whatever affects one part of our great family of humanity affects us all.
We must protect life. Because we are all that we’ve got.
We must nurture life. Because to do the opposite is to surrender to the virus of hate that will consume us from the inside out until we are but a shell of our humanity.
3.Go for it! Don't Hold Back Just move forward with purpose, with love and anything’s possible! - Michael Doiley When we recognise and dismantle the limitations of negative beliefs and social conditioning, we create a space for transcendence- to go beyond and go for our dreams. Just by taking the deep belly breaths, we can reset and release fear. With the mighty magical tools of music and meditation we can harness our power and creativity and move forward with good intent.
🌹 🎶 Be well, be safe, breathe deep, sing loudly 🌹 🎶 Lots of love, virtual hugs and good singing vibes

Camellia From the tender heart of spring emerging Bursts the winter rose, tsubaki - Startling beauty of petalled perfection, Luscious cháhuā tea flower, Nestled in leafy treasure chests Of the world's most beloved beverage. Multi-layered floral faces trace Multi-national roots to many places - Enjoyed for centuries in the gardens And ceremonies of China, Japan, India, Clipped and traded by Western colonists, Named Camellia by a Swedish botanist After a Moravian Jesuit Botanist Whose studies of Filipino plant medicine Did not include his namesake. Swooning, self beheading, Feared by samurai, beloved by lovers, Death locks stem and flower In eternal embrace.
