Back to the Studio

I am getting back to one of my creative branches-Recording and Singing. I have mentioned in a previous post that I am going to record a song, “Ordinary Miracles” as a fundraiser for the Bat World Sanctuary. This is a very beautiful song about beauty and gratitude in the world. Sarah McLaughlan recorded it and I think it is the perfect backdrop to the video that I am also producing with a good friend, Tana Newberry. I can get the licensing rights to cover the song through a company called limelight https://www.songclearance.com/

I plan to release the song as a single and distribute it digitally through ITunes, Amazon and CD Baby. It is so cool that there are so many avenues in recording and producing a song that it is a lot more cost effective to record and put out the finished process. My studio consists of Studio Mini XL a very powerful recording ap I have on my Ipad (It has the capability of recording 8 tracks), The IRig Midi which can connect the Keyboard or guitar and the Vocalive vocal processing mic.  I have another friend, Jim Wingfield who has agreed to play keyboards for me and I will probably add vocals later. I am working on adding acoustic guitar and the Psaltery, which I will play. I recorded a working demo so I can experiment with the other instruments. This creative process energizes me. I can feel my guides around me and allow their creative energy to merge with me in a synchronistic coupling. My voice seems to grow stronger and my range increases. Though I took 4 years of Piano lessons, it wasn’t until I started learning how to play piano by ear through a musician named Scott Houston also known as the Piano Guy That I learned how to play.  By breaking down the steps on how to apply basic chord progression and rhythm patterns. My piano playing is pretty passable. I have accompanied myself in concert or performing in church.

This project is definitely Divinely guided and I look forward to how everything comes together. Being able to combine the gifts that God gave me is such a joy and I get to do my spiritual work as a Peaceful Animal Activist at the same time.

What is Your Spiritual Calling?

Found this cute photo of Pants. She looks like she is smiling.

When you walk through the door of a new consciousness, a new awareness it is magic. However, this is a natural phenomena. We just may not know it. I meditate everyday a 40 minute session and them 5 minute meditation tune ups through out the day. I am open to all possibilities. This is a blessing because I never know where I will receive a new message on starting a new project, a new way of looking at a situation in a different way. Maybe the message will come from a phone conversation when I am talking to my brother (which is what happened the other day). Maybe Oski (my 11 year old Bombay mix) will send me a thought that helps me to understand what a certain behavior means; Maybe I will get a vision on a new art project or a new video/song project. Maybe it will be a new calling. Mediation helps me to clear out mental chatter so I will be ready to accept a new opportunity for doing my spiritual work as a Joy Guide. Be patient I am going with something here.

Recently, while I was on my Facebook page, a friend who is a fellow artist and renaissance woman, Angelique Stacy, sent me a photo of a bat holding a teddy bear. So cute. I look in the eyes and I see a consciousness. Very intriguing. I didn’t know a lot about bats, but in the Medicine Cards by Jaime Sands, Bat is the medicine of death/rebirth. I “liked” the photo, then I started receiving more photos of bats. I started seeing how sweet they can be, what a playful nature they have. Then I started finding out more and found out that they destroy the bugs that can destroy crops. other short factoids: Bats are not blind, they do not suck your blood, and their wings are actually their hands! Amazing, right?

In fact, bats are so misunderstood. I realized I was receiving a calling to help raise awareness about the way we may feel about them. I happened to join the Bat World Sanctuary and got a really sweet note from the founder, Amanda Lollar. I was so touched she went out of my way to send me a personal thank you that I shared with her an idea of recording a single and distributing on ITunes, Amazon, CD Baby and 75% of sales going back to the organization. Amanda emailed me back and agreed that it was a wonderful idea. So now I am starting on this recording project.

Besides getting the licensing rights to cover the song “Ordinary Miracle” I am also going to create a video to go with it. All these things fell in to place within a short amount of time. This is how it works, if you ask God to “use me”. Events occur very fast. So stay tuned. This is a wonderful work in progress and will be interesting to see how it evolves.

I’M Batty for Bats!

Yes, I am declaring I love these mammals. They are smart, sweet, affectionate and very expressive. They have many different vocalizations. And guess what many of the things that bats do have helped develop medications to our species. NO, they will not suck your blood dry. Amanda Lollar founder of the Bat World Sanctuary says “That is only in the movies”. I first learned about bats when my friend and fellow artist, Angelique Stacy shared a post about bats on Facebook. There was a photo of a bat named Pants cuddling with a Teddy Bear. Then I saw another photo of a bat named Lizzie and she had an expression that said she loves and knows how to have fun. That was it. I started thinking of words to write a song inspired by Lizzie titled “If Lizzie could talk what would she say”. The melody came really fast and I knew that the Universe was saying it’s time to get back to work. I don’t consider this a job, I consider this a joy! I made a donation to Bat Worlds Sanctuary and received a very nice email from Amanda. So I emailed Amanda back and told her my idea about writing a song and donating 75% of the sales back to the Bat World Sanctuary. Amanda emailed me back and said “Hi Evie, This sounds wonderful! Your music is really beautiful:)….Thank you so much!” So in the next few months, I will be writing and keeping you all posted of the evolution of this project. I wanted to leave you with a link to a video of Amanda being interviewed by David Letterman:

The Joy of Manifesting

What would you put on the inside?

What would you put on the inside?

I love the word Joy. I hear the word, I visualize the word. I breathe the word into my chakras. I can alchemically change the thoughts of fear to Joy when I breathe and meditate on that word. To feel Joy is who I am. I am a spirit living inside a human body embodying and expressing Joy. When I have manifested things into my life in a short time it is because I am feeling joy about my chosen thing and I wrap the feeling of Joy around a symbol of the thing I want to attract into my life. I do this in 5 minute increments during the day and include that in my virtual group meditation.  When there have things that didn’t manifest as quickly as I wanted (I of course are in to instant gratification) it is because I allowed a lower frequency vibration to enter my mind. If I felt fear around what I wanted to attract, it would slow down the process. Marianne Williamson says when we go to a space that is less than joyful-anger, fear, frustration-we are deactivating the connection from the Universal flow of energy. She is not saying it is gone forever, these less than Joyful thoughts are slowing down the process. So work on the reason why the thoughts you don’t want to embrace are here. Then surrender these thoughts and say ” I feel ____, but I am willing to change”. Once you surrender to this process, you will see the miracles we are all capable of creating. I call myself a Visionary Alchemist/Joy Guide because it is a process of changing one belief into another belief. And it is so much fun.

Time to do a Give-a-way!

Hello wonderful spiritual lights of the world! I am getting back to my art and focusing on 3D greeting cards. I hired my brother Gabriel to do the copywriting for my listings on Etsy and my own website, www.visions-Alchemy.com To get the energy moving and circulating I am giving away my first 3D greeting card design titled “Joyful Thoughts”. To win this card this is all you have to do:

Send me a short caption on what you think should go inside the card. I will be accepting entries until January 30th, 2013. Send your caption to visionsalchemy@gmail.com

I’m Ready for Everything!

Who knows what is going to show Up?

Who knows what is going to show Up?

Does that cover about anything that can turn up? I think yes! I really am looking forward to 2013! it is a Six year. A year of Family togetherness, high creativity vibe. Time to redecorate my home. I have a few projects I am working on. I plan on teaching a Psaltery class in the late spring; I just got an electric violin for Christmas so I am learning how to play it. It is a really cool design. It sounds wonderful when I connect it to my Ipad and use the Amptitude ap with my earphones. It is a lot easier to play than the acoustic violin I struggled with in Junior high and high school. I found a Unicorn Strings Psaltery on Ebay for a really good price. My house will be filled with music. Speaking of Music. I am working on a classical style piece to be played on the guitar and Psaltery. I will have my brother, Gabe play the Guitar and and I will probably Play Rose, my Baritone Psaltery.  With the new shift that occurred on December 21st 2012, I know there are exciting and amazing surprises coming in. I can visualize a lot of things over flowing with Joy. I will definitely keep you all posted when these things show up. My guides are ready to assist me. I happened to find an aura photo taken of me 2 years ago. I was just starting to consciously work with Archangels Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Raguel. Before the photo was taken I asked my “Angel crew” to take the photo with me. When the photo developed there was Michael standing on my right side holding his sword. You can see it very clearly. It is an amazing photo. I have to find a way to make a copy of this photo and post it. So yes, hold on to your hats, it is going to be the best Disneyland ride you have ever been on!

The shift is Here Are You Ready?

Alchemy WomanI was so excited when December 21st finally arrived.  The old tired ways of “No Pain No Gain” and thoughts that you have to be a strong “my way or the highway” leader is fading. You will see many manifestations of peace, harmony and love materializing every where. You can change your life too. Actually, anytime before the shift occurred, you can make things change. But now you will have the enhanced energy of attracting things into your lives faster. The dense energy that can filter the higher vibrations so it is more challenging to make that connection has been removed so your manifestation work will produce results much faster. That said, it is also important to be very clear what you are asking for because you will receive exactly what you are asking. When you know exactly how to word your requests you will see the positive joyous results you are seeking and visualize. If you are not sure how to do this. I can help you. I am an EFT  law of Attraction coach and can help you fine tune your manifesting skills. I have studied under the teachings of  Michael J Lossier and Esther and Jerry Hicks and Gary Craig and love doing this work. With the shift that occurred on December 21, 2012, you will see how fast things change.I have been using these techniques for over 10 years and I have built up my mental equivalent to know that what ever I am requesting comes in at the perfect time. If you want help email me at visionsAlchemy.com or leave me a message on my business line (707) 361-5864. If you live in another city or state or country, we can have a video Skype session. I wanted to leave you with a video done by Jack Canfield and Pamela Bruner that explains the work I do.
