I was getting it all wrong. I was taking sides and I was choosing the side of the emerging Divine Feminine. Until I realized it’s all part of one, just as the yin-yang symbol shows us how the feminine and masculine co-create the whole. I have to remember that even in this unbalanced world today the feminine and masculine create a whole. So instead of getting angry with old white men in politics and those who are searching for power, I need to find a way to heal my own vision so that it is inclusive of masculine energy. I am critical of and even angry with the unbalanced suppression that is taking place in the US. It is part of a whole that is rebalancing the feminine and masculine. There are no sides to take. There is only one energy and it embraces us all.
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I hold a vision of oneness and see the masculine and feminine finding equality and balance.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
- What is your role in helping to create balance between the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine?

Deepen Your Inner Awareness
We Are Expressions Of The Energy Of Wholeness
When I step into my inner stillness and ask for guidance, I receive clarity. Out of all the things that I love to do, teaching is very, very high on my list of what brings me happiness. Teaching lets me continue to explore so that I continue learning, and I immediately have others with which to share my excitement of discovery.
The deeper our intention, the more quickly is the manifestation. What is your intention today?
Get Answers From Spirit
This is an exercise I created many years ago and still use it often in the course of moving forward. I call it:
|How To Relax, Let It Unfold Abd Still Get Answers From Spirit|
|What I Do||How I Feel||Affirmations|
Use this format any time you wish to delve more deeply into your beliefs and feelings. In the first column write an action or choice you have made or are considering: “I want to leave this job.” In the second “How I Feel” column you might write, “I am afraid and yet I am certain this is the right step.” In the third column look for the positive aspects and make an affirmation: “I am One with the Universal Energy and am always cared for. I make a choice for the highest good of all.”
After you have completed your list, copy your affirmations to a separate sheet that you will work with on a daily basis.
This format can be used to obtain inner wisdom and guidance on actions you are taking or actions you are considering. Identify your feelings and design your affirmation to give you the confidence and reassurance you need to move forward.
Use this format to find your feelings about a choice you are considering. Remember too that although a choice is a good one for you, the timing may not yet be appropriate. Keep asking for answers from Spirit.
Take Responsibility for Healing Yourself
Are You Doing Your Self-Healing Work?
I am still reading David Gibson’s book on sound healing and I realize there is a great deal of self-healing we can do with our minds. I have edema in both legs and the wound doctor said the valves that should close to keep the blood rising up the leg are not working so I have made up a song about valves snapping shut in my legs and I picture them moving the blood up as it should do. Actually I picture the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White marching along singing “Hi Ho, Hi Ho, We snap valves shut as we go…” You know – whatever works for you…
After years of gradually bending over more and more until I can no longer stand up straight, I am practicing and picturing and imagining and doing the physical work to help me learn to stand up straight again.
How do you need to use your imagination to self-heal? And will you do the work?
You Might Want To Keep A Thanksgiving Journal
Can you list 25 things a day for which you are thankful?
Judge Thomas Troward in The Spirit of Opulence says: “We should focus on giving rather than receiving. We should cultivate the feeling that we possess all sorts of riches which we can bestow upon others and which we can bestow liberally because by this very action we open the way for still greater supplies to flow in.”
“You may give from many planes besides money, like the spiritual and intellectual planes. Begin with that and the Universal Law of Attraction will kick in and embrace all planes.”
You are prosperous to the degree that you are experiencing peace, health, and plenty in your world. This is the true definition of prosperity.
- Believe you deserve it.
- Believe it is possible
- Believe it can happen
- Allow it to happen
Explore New Potential and Possibilities
Celebrate Your Wins
When we take time to celebrate our wins, we become aware of our progress and our success. Take time to look back over your day and perhaps write down the gifts you received, the discoveries you uncovered and the progress you made.
I might look back at my physical movement practice, I might expand the new segment I wrote for my newsletter, I might write down something I learned, the people I interacted with, the problems I solved and the insights I received.
How will you take time to celebrate your wins?
A Surprise Rock
It was an activity for the senior residents and a great excuse to be outside. We were given small clay pots to decorate and plant with seeds and we were given a rock to paint. I have great respect for rocks and had no intentions of painting this smooth grey rock. I picked it up in my left hand (the receiving hand) and was blown away by the energy that it sent to my heart chakra. It was unexpected from such an ordinary smooth grey rock that fits in the palm of my hand. It now sits on my computer desk and I pick it up often for continued expansion of my heart chakra.
Look for the unexpected and joyfully receive its gifts.
Change can be challenging; change can be a gift. Change will open new paths and opportunities to explore. Change is good. Welcome it.
I have an opportunity to retrain my body to stand up straight and learn to walk better. My dry macular degeneration will give an opportunity to get creative in how I do my work. This new living environment has opened up a lot of new interactions and awareness for me.
How is change showing up for you? And how are you embracing it?

The Greater Our Expectation, The Greater The Results We Draw To Us
What you believe you deserve and what you believe is possible determines what you get. Expect the best. Do not settle for second best.
Are you expecting enough of yourself and for yourself?
With the help of physical therapy, I am raising my expectations to walk longer and stand taller.
All I need to do is do the work to get there. I use a wheelchair to go outside and they will give me a buzzer to wear so I can call someone to get me when I’m ready to come back in. That will mean some lovely alone time in nature to meditate and be in the present. I would like that.
As I write this, I realize I have some expectations to raise – like walking outside with just my walker.
How do you need to raise your expectations? The greater our expectation, the greater the results we draw to us.
=== DEEPER SONG PHILOSOPHIES ===
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
— Patanjali (c. 1st to 3rd century BC)
“’Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams;
Who looks inside, awakens.”
— Carl Jung

No One Can Walk A Road For Us
“No one can walk a road for us. Everything we do in life forms a road…. We must each walk ourselves.
“We make our own road one day at a time. As we grow older, it becomes critical to fulfill what we find important. The more we understand our goals, the more we can progressively gauge how close we are to them. That gives us a very powerful understanding. The road each of us walks is our own personal Tao. All the principles we use in following universal Tao are also applicable to our personal one. Just as there is only one great Tao, so too is there only one Tao for us – our Tao. To be true to that, to be sure of that, is never to be separated from the essence of wisdom.”
– Dang, Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao.

Expand Your Role in the Rapidly Evolving Universe
Walk The Path of Right Action
Sometimes the choices are tough but we know we have to make them and that they are the right thing to do.
I’m going to suggest that all of us look closely to make certain that we are aligned with our core values. It begins with loving others as you do yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you are sort of up a creek with no paddle. You might want to start there.
Not everyone has the same values, but we each walk the values we have chosen, whether they be positive or negative. The choice to change is always there. If you are not certain, go exploring and find other ways to achieve what you want with no harm to others. Thoughtful people need to find their voices and right action.
Are you thoughtfully participating in the governing of your country? As Light Workers we are to look within our hearts. We know we are all one energy and we must embrace the light beings whose light seems to have dimmed and help them raise their sights and join us on an inclusive path. How do you walk the path of right action?
Take This Journey With A Full Heart
We have each been given many beautiful gifts. Sometimes we need to look closely to notice and acknowledge them and other times they are a huge part of our life and everyone sees that in us.
Whatever you do, however you do it, wherever it leads you, travel with a full heart and expectations about yourself and others. You will never be disappointed.
Take your journey with passion and watch the ripples you set loose touch the lives of others.

Raise Your Sights and Your Expectations
The Role We Play
We lead by example. We lead by doing what we do and thinking what we think and seeing what we say. It all has impact and you must be aware of that impact and be sure it is how we want it to be.
I’ve been a bridge probably more times than I even recognize. I go cheerfully and enthusiastically down a path and sometimes it inspires others to follow their own path of light.
We each impact others throughout our day. Sometimes it is a large impact and sometimes it is a gentle nudge. Be aware of the role model you are and make certain it is where you want to lead others.

Intention And Healing The Planet
The key to healing the planet is in our intention.
We can work with overpopulation, climate change, environmental emissions, or we can just hold High Watch for the world – hold high intentions for the whole planet and everyone on it.
You can sing a song to the planet, you can create a ceremony for the planet, you can be an activist for the planet, you can send energy to the planet. Our high vibration intentions for the whole Universe are helping.

Explore and Interpret the Guidance and Messages of the Divine Feminine
The Divine Feminine Is Taking A Beating
As women move more strongly into our feminine power, we are currently taking active hits of repression from the old white men here in the US who are scared to death of the rise of the feminine – they are trying to take away our rights and suppress us.
It won’t work, of course, we will rise up stronger and louder and more powerfully and take our place as New World leaders. But we have to do the work. We have to run for school boards and local governments and political office and do the grass roots work and reach out and educate women about the power of the voices we actually have. We must and will outsmart the white men who want to take away our rights. How will you step forward? Run for public office? Talk to voters to make sure they are registered and will vote? We have work to do to secure our place in the world. Let’s get to it.
===REFLECTIONS OF A DEEPER SONG PODCAST===
==== DEEPER SONG EXPLORATION ===
I have only been on a low sodium diet for a couple of weeks now but the changes are very dramatic for what I can and cannot or will no longer eat. The regular food here is now way too salty for me. The main goal in this population is to keep people from malnutrition so they cook to the palate of the majority of residents.
But my palate has changed dramatically in a very short period of time. Do you need to cut back on your salt intake? My sense is that you probably do.
The last time I was in the hospital for the edema in my legs, a doctor sat down beside my bed in the admitting area and said if I would lower my sodium intake I could cure my legs. My mouth fell open. Could it really be that easy? I began my low sodium cardiac diet and it only took me four days for my pallet change.
Americans eat on average about 3,400 mg of sodium per day. However, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends adults limit sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg per day—that’s equal to about 1 teaspoon of table salt! For children under age 14, recommended limits are even lower.
I ask for steamed vegetables with no seasoning so I can add my own.
Go exploring and get creative and lower your salt intake for greater health and longer life.
