I am delighted to say that I have reached an important milestone in my new Singing/Songwriter career path. My single, “Runaway Love” has now made it on iTunes today and I am so excited. It’s been exactly 6 months and 2 days since I wrote the song, all alone in my little cosy home in Motherwell, Scotland.
I feel I am progressing quite nicely and I am doing my first private gig this week, so all very exciting. I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone and I know I am growing by doing this – this is such a fulfilling journey!!
I started this Clarabelle blog mainly to share my poetry and it has evolved into so much more than that. The blog, I feel, has gently and graciously guided me into my Singing/Songwriting Career, for sure. I like to call my songs “Singing Poetry”, original poetic verses with a beautiful melody.
So it just goes to show that if you are passionate about something in life YOU can make it happen, you’ve just got to take that first baby step.
May each step that you take today move you closer to achieving your dreams. Thank you for being here.
At the beginning of every month I pose a question for you to think about and answer for yourself. I also provide you with my own answer to this question. Below is this month’s question.
Usually I offer you up a question that relates to moving forward with your life for e.g. making a change or a question that will help you to become more self aware. This month’s question is a little bit more simple (well, for me) 🙂 .
What is your most favourite piece of music or song, right now, in this moment and why?
I really do love lots of songs and music compilations, I have a deep respect and appreciation for music and I really do admire the musical talents of Artists.
The one song that I have been listening to recently and really does inspireme, is a song called “Try” by the Band “The Modern Hearts”. I really LOVE this song, because I can relate to the words, which uplift me, inspire me andawaken my soul inside….to me, this song is quite simply magical and captivating. When I play this song, I want to dance, I just start jumping and moving around on the living room floor like a 2 year old on Christmas Eve excitedly waiting for Santa to arrive. What an amazing impact a song can have on you.
Here is a SoundCloud link to the wonderfully inspiring song “Try” by the Band “The Modern Hearts”, right now, this song is number one in my heart and soul: https://soundcloud.com/modernheart/try
I would really love to know what is your favourite song and why and also what positive impact it has on you too?
I want to share a very beautiful classical piece of music with you today, created by the Italian Composer, Ludovico Einaudi, from his classical album “Divenire” meaning “to become”. I absolutely love this classical piece, it really does connect deeply with my heart and soul – it simply sounds quite magical to me. When I listen to this album track, I feel it takes me on a mystical journey into the deepest realms of my imagination, where faith joins hands with dreams and softly dances under the starry skies – it moves me, it soothes me and it inspires me. Thank you Ludovico
I encourage you to listen to this wonderful piece of musical art and whilst doing so think about this question:
What does “to become” mean to you?
I believe, that in order for you to have all that you want to have, you have to BE and DO first – in that order:
“To Become” my friend is your answer.
There is a star in your heart and it is twinkling at me, I can’t see it, but I can feel it, you are very special, believe that, become that.
I am a great believer that creativity and imagination are two of the key components to a happy and fulfilling life and when you combine this with truth, love, passion, inspiration and connectedness you get something that is really “explosive”, internally and externally. I am sure we have all experienced our dancing minds playing a “tug-of-war” with our heart-strings – lately I have been letting my heart win and my inner spirit is running joyously free.
Moving out of competitive mode and into creative mode has lifted my being to another level and I feel truly liberated. This transition has led me to create the beginnings of my first ever music album, entitled “Divine Harmony”, a compilation of inspirational music that talks to your soul, sings to your heart and connects with your mind in a magnetic manner. I have now produced 8 musical tracks so far, let me tell you a little bit about each one:
Track 1: “Running Free” – This musical piece tells the story of “returning to your soul”, it takes you through a journey of life experiences that have went from deep sadness and loss to letting go, breaking free and arriving at who you really are. It is ultimately upbeat and uplifting.
Track 2: “Hearts Apart” – I wrote this musical piece based on some recent news that my Sister, Brother-in-Law, Nephew and Nieces are all emigrating to Mississippi next month. This musical compilation tells of the heart-warming story of my deep love for them as they travel on their own journey of happiness and adventure.
Track 3: “Moving On” – This creative piece is ultimately about love – being, doing and having love. It is about letting go of past loves and opening your heart to new loves now and in the future. It is a very moving and touching musical story and I had someone special in mind when writing this musical piece.
Track 4: “Inspiring Hearts” – This track is a part of who I am, it shares the story of my passion and desire to inspire hearts all over the world. The music aims to connect with ones soul and deeply move them in an inspirational and motivational way.
Track 5: “Flight of the Blue Butterfly”– This musical composition tells the story of the stages of healing towards ultimate freedom of heart, soul, mind and spirit. The blue butterfly is very significant for me and you can see it pictured as part of my Clarabelle logo. This harmonious musical piece aims to move you in a peaceful and spiritual way.
Track 6: “Happiness Now” – This track is a musical compilation of what it sounds like to me to experience happiness in each and every moment. It will help you to open up your heart to the whispers of your soul and see and feel the beauty in each precious moment of life. Beauty is all around us and this track is a unique representation of that.
Track 7: “Coming Home” – This musical piece tells the story of my self-journey to being at one with oneself. It shares the realisation that the answers were always there, from within. It is a musical expression of who I am and all I ever need to be. In this artistic creation, “I have arrived”.
Track 8: “I Am”– This track is a musical celebration of the soul, the artistic expression of knowing that I always knew and trusting the feelings from within. It is an uplifting and moving musical piece that will surely touch your inner being.
