“Beware the Ides of March: An Idealistic Truth!”
Do you ever notice that our lives change cyclically? Our day seems to breathe as if living it’s own life. Energy does not just come from us, it comes from the ether all around us. Those of us that listen to coincidence and connect with those that make us go hmmmm, are more tuned to the magnetic frequencies that rule the world. Listen to the obvious connections that the world is throwing at you because it could be the only chance you have to find your purpose in this time period. We are all looking for our team of super heroes to fight the bad guys with!
I speak to more and more people with everyday that passes, that know we are being poisoned, they understand that our slow trek to death is orchestrated by the elite shadow and that cancer is the early selection process for immune system decay. We are being prepared for a mass extinction event that come in 5 ways: Nuclear holocaust and the subsequent winter(less likely); Disease and viral outbreaks(Most Likely); Pharmaceutical suicide(happening); A rapid shift of the planet’s polarity(Timing Only); Toxins in the Air, Water and GMO Roundup ready fruit and vegetables(CANCER). This isn’t new, it has been going on for years, eliminate breeders and consumers all while collecting hordes of resources for a few to survive. It is happening and we haven’t been able to stop it because we write it off as implausible. Those that thrive in the system say “well people can’t keep secrets so this can’t possibly be true right?” Of course people can’t keep secrets, it’s why we all know about it!
The question is my friends: If we know it is happening, Is there a BETTER way to reduce populations and bring life back into balance with nature so the elite don’t feel forced to exterminate us all? I believe in the crazy whacked out conspiracies, just as I believe in the good nature and empathy of the individual human being. If infinity exists as mathematicians have proven then EVERY SINGLE theory is accurate and dimensions are infinite too. Every possibility could happen. However, it gets harder and harder to stand against the ocean’s tide in this space and time, if you are but one drop!
Forget the wedge issues when you go to your senators. Recall Education, healthcare, taxes, economic stimulation, reducing military spending, increasing good will, improving our drug policies, discouraging incentives and commissions for DR’s to knee jerk prescribe controlled opiates, SSRI and other MMAO drugs. Encourage natural medicine and health insurance that covers eastern prevention as well as major medical. So how can we, like so many non profits, rally around a common human desire to survive? We must leave urban settings and build up the small family farm again and when we can’t we must create an urban farm where we can grow our own heirloom vegetables and fruit. We must teach our children that agriculture is the center of leading a healthy lifestyle. We must inform them of accurate nutritional requirements rather than encouraging them to eat more beef, bread and dairy than ANY person should consume in a day.
Remember your heart and your connection to all people as sacred. Hatred is part of darkness and we all have it inside us, we all do, you must quell it when choosing to LOVE over all things! These real issues are about protecting our families from mass extinction and we should be terrified of those that do not value human lives. We must remember why we have a Bill of Rights, why we need to fight against the tyranny of powerful men and why, if we continue to fear the slap back, we will fail to see the walls go up around us until we wake up one morning and our world is on fire and we just wasted our one opportunity to make change.
We must provide the world Open DATA to change the world and build a better theory of how to save the planet without the mass genocide of 92% of the population per the Georgia Guide Stones. Our media and screens detract from that connection to others, as does money and the desire to earn it. One must possess a desire to genuinely give or all you are is a consumer. I cannot honestly say you should ever vote any way but love and if you don’t see it run the other way. If you don’t find the best interest of your neighbors at heart then don’t participate in the party. If you see an overwhelming attention on money vs human life don’t vote for the candidate, it’s what they want us to do, FEAR each other, vote for security and more drones, more invasion of privacy, more, more, more. I would love to see an app this year that allows you to vote, that allows you to give back and to participate daily in your government. It’s time to end the he said she said partisan legislation and bring America into a period where all voices are heard, not just those on the extreme fringes.
Expectations of politicians:
They all begin in an altruistic place, they want to help and they want to make a difference.
They all End in a discouraged and desperate attempt to make change.
It only takes a transition from local politics to national to see where the shift in ethics happens.
Money is the driving force behind politics.
Private contributions by everyone should be outlawed.
The life of service to others should be it’s own reward at the national minimum wage.
Each candidate should have equal funding from the presidential election fund and that is it.
Social media is so simple that if people believe in you they will follow you and it doesn’t cost anything.
We are announcing our very first comic available for free to every person that pays to see any of our shows. We are currently working on digital distribution for the comic and will be working monthly on small comics for you the fans. Here is a small taste of what you can expect. Trying to relate to current events. Nordic Daughter is a viking shield maiden married to Lycan a warrior and farmer that teaches many of the children in the village how to play the guitar. The Comic will follow the Duo around the world as they help people fight against tyranny and injustice.
As we enter the new year remember that 2016 is about vibrating higher. You don’t get to a higher vibration by being rigid. You don’t get to a higher vibration by sacrificing your personal integrity. Love is our weapon, music our wings, may the joy of the constant renewal provide you with a fresh perspective on your personal plight. Do not fear the world, embrace it. Love with all you’ve got because we do not know how many days shall grace this instance of our existence. So many possibilities and each one could happen. So live in the moment. Give of yourself because you are a voice and each life you impact ripples. Do not let your fear feed the demons. Pain happens to everyone because light has a balance too. The brighter you shine the more fuel you will require to keep the doubts at bay. We choose how we fill up our soul, with laughter and joy and respect for fellow beings, or with bitterness, anger and fear? I like to think we are participating in a musical revolution. One that brings messages of truth and understanding to people ready to wake up from the old hierarchies. Creation is the ultimate power. Build something, sing something, write it down, paint it in bold symbols for future generations to enjoy. We are all creators, we are all of the stars and we will all perish in these mortal shells in time.
What is Your Life’s Journey?
I love music. It speaks louder than any other language known to man. With or without words music can bring us to our knees and draw upon the most primal, spiritual, emotional spaces of what I can only describe as a soul. There is no greater gift to offer the world than art, one’s purest form of expression and humility. Not everyone gets to deep expression within themselves in their lifetime though many an artist tries. I want that, more than anything else, to truly put the entire spirit of my being into a tangible work that can express the entire gambit of my emotion and persona in a beautiful effigy of melody and light. That is what the idealistic child inside of me would say. The realist wishes nothing more than to tunnel headfirst into business and play with puzzles and solutions to problems with the logical part of my mind. Obsessed with music and strategy, a rare combination, I erred for years on the side of society’s tangible money. I was bred to see music as Fernandez saw clay frivolous and superficial but my heart wanted to free itself in the vocal melodies. “But working in clay, with its softness and ease of manipulation, gave her the same feeling she’d had in high school of making things that were merely artificial and pretty”(Greene 153). My life demands that I give more back I always told myself.
I spent my 20’s acquiring business skills, learning different verticals like software, non-profits and financial services. Singing karaoke in smoky bars on Wednesday nights, secretly wishing to quit everything and run off to tour the big wide world. My heart is in the music while my head is in the business. I have had to, like Fernandez, find my own way and create my own persona, if you will. Understanding that my life’s task is a combination of music and business, I reinvigorated my own musical journey with vocal lessons at 30 years old and a Bachelors degree in Music Business at 33. School at that age was much more streamlined and the impatience of youth had worn off. My heart was finally healed after years of dissention among my family. This entire process was cathartic for me. On a positive note, I learned that I was more capable than I ever truly believed myself to be when I walked across that stage, (despite my ego whom seems to think I’m ten foot tall and bulletproof). Adversely, the intricate working of our psyche can often bubble to the surface including some of the ugliness that we spit out for others to trip on. I learned that I was not handling stress well at all and while I thought I was letting it go I was in fact holding on to certain things for dear life.
First of all I need to address this concept of positive and negative lessons. If we learn from something or gain perspective I believe it is always positive. Negatively, I would say that I have a tendency to be emotional with the Naïve Perspective(Greene 147), perpetual idealism. Knowing that I am empathic and sensitive I have learned that I must keep things light in conversation but focused on the details during presentations and proper preparation for rebuttals and explanations of numbers. Social intelligence is not only understanding others and how they act and react to each other but it is about how we fit into that equation in all of our quirkiness.
Negative sides of social intelligence show that people are judgmental, they judge our appearance and our demeanor; on the plus side we can combat that with a nice pair of shoes, a great classic outfit and the poise and grace of a Master. We learned in our reading that we will encounter many fools that do not see our vision fully along the way, whether they are too preoccupied with the status quo or just arrogant. Persistence and work ethic is the only way to combat this issue, along with building your own legacy when fools can’t see the forest for the trees.
The Journey I am on is one of my own self expression as both an artist and an intellect, but more than that is a dream of helping others reach their true self expression. I am being drawn to help model a business that is revolutionary and that aids the development of each artists individual business plan through the aid of management and accountability software. Not only will I be building myself a tool but musicians will have the ability to truly change their fate with a few key strokes and consistency. In order to achieve this I must use effective communication and understand the social dynamics that evaded me in my youth. Emotions and mental filter are probably the most challenging for me to Master. It’s almost thought to mouth by pass filter. This can rub people the wrong way and it is an opportunity I always have to work on because those two combined traits can mean a wicked mental right hook for the wrong by standard. That being said I have developed an acute awareness of my flaws and tend to let my work speak for itself these days.
My Viking Heritage
As I sit here formulating my first true message to the world I wonder how far back I have taken the name of this project. Heritage seems incredibly important to me though in reality I was raised removed from, all of my cousins and extended kin. I was born in Alaska, a clandestine viking burg as was my fathers hometown of Tacoma Washington. My parents met when my mother, a San Diego Native, was whisked away to the arctic tundra when my Grandfather joined the Anchorage Fire Department in April 1969 and my father followed suit in 1975 after graduation. Grandfather was a unique and wonderful man. He was always there for me and my mother despite a lack of blood. My mother may never know her real father but Ronald Burns was by far the best dad she could have ever asked for. He spent 22 years as a firefighter between the Navy and municipal service and raised my mother as his own. His Scottish honor and beauty contribute to my loving nature and bold acceptance of strangers. My other grandparents also had a bold heritage one side rooted deeply on the continent and one side that passed through Ellis Island from Norway and Sweden. Each gave me a light to carry with me and I call it LOVE.
I was born to the arctic, blending passion and curiosity into a child my parents loved so deeply. But the days there drew to a close as my parents moved to warmer climates in Southern Colorado and away from the heritage I longed for. It was a blessed upbringing for anyone. Upon my grandfathers retirement from the fire department he bought a farm just off the Southern Ute Reservation, which is why we found ourselves there. Chickens, horses, long country roads, riding for miles at 7 years old, catching snakes, climbing trees without a care in the world, these were my days until I was nine. Then I was blessed with more beauty in Durango, CO. Again walking miles to school, riding bikes across town, babysitting the neighborhood kids, and getting my first playground kiss, Awana’s and piano recitals, Odessy of the Mind and then…Off to Colorado Springs for High School. I have lived in some of the most beautiful parts of this great state and I love every inch of it. I recall my Native Alaska with a distant fondness much like the terrain of the remotest pieces of Colorado, and like Robert Service, I long to return to the Yukon once more. As long as we have protected national parks I will gladly conquer the 14ers here. I hope to find the wherewithal to buy a piece of acreage up there someday though.
So I come from the mountains and the ocean, like the mystery of fjords of my old country my ancestors brought with them a passion for exploring. My blood desires roots and constant travel, a conundrum, but unlike my ancestors I choose music and love instead of sword and shield to communicate my desires to strangers. I believe in justice more than anything else, not someones opinions of right and wrong, but justice for harm to others, not ones sensibilities. Oh, have I been wronged in my lifetime. This world is not, for the weak at heart and instead breeds many that would take rather than give, push rather than pull and wage war rather than forgive. I am not among them. My heart was built on Christian principles which quickly showed me that judgement was something everyone participated in equally. We were told that loving others was the right thing to do and when they harm you turn the other cheek. I became a splendid victim until people got to the second betrayal then my viking warrior of justice likes to rear its ugly head. I have my own vision of “GOD” however, I use the term because it is the easiest term for everyone to understand the energy we frantically try to describe throughout all of our spiritual experiences. I believe as we all do in a loving and powerful energy that flows effortlessly within us. Some call it God or Allah while others call it intuition, divine vision. In all beliefs there is duality as there is within me. The power to be light and the power to be dark. Love or Fear…Every single choice is based on one or the other.
I choose love! I choose the principles of light and leave my darkness to be examined in the silent spaces with the one I love and trust explicitly, my husband. Only he can see each part of me and truly love me unconditionally. Intimacy can also be given platonically. To understand we are all human and that our love for each other should have no exceptions or loopholes, no judgement and a genuine support for each others greatness, that is our humanity. When we all can do that for each other is when we have ascended to the next level. It could be premature to tell the world I am an Idealist, yet I would wager everyone figured that out already. I believe that we can create a world in which people are not impoverished, not dying for preventable reasons, and where each human may truly explore and discover their talents and how they can thrive on this planet and contribute to their passions. IDEALIST… The struggle is half the journey however and I understand completely the necessary heartache that must naturally lead us to acceptance and compassion for anothers plight.
My life has thus far been fairly blessed with lessons, insights, family, children, beauty, talent, intelligence, love, friendship and integrity. It has also been riddled with pain, betrayal, loss, fear, depression, rage, death, poverty and guilt. I have walked in each spectrum at each tone scale and I have come out on the other side a wiser person for it. The faces of my past are what I plan to uncover for everyone in this first album. We will take a journey into my life through the intricate dance of music and the fiery passion of a viking warrior. I hope that the heart can feel for itself how my life has molded me into this complicated and passionate creature of emotion and light. Join me this next year as we learn we are never to old to express ourselves in our genuine form and truly embrace where we come from in our efforts to be whole.
