Beautiful sisters.


The voice of a SHE…

Last night was our last performance of SHE…on the tip of her tongue, and I can’t believe its over. No more practice, no more selling tickets…its kind of funny when you focus on finishing something and then its over, just like that and you wish you had more time to live it. The journey was so amazing, spending time with 10 authentic, loving, light bringing SHEs…I am so blessed to have been a part of such a powerful project. Its been awhile since I have been on stage (a few high school plays and a short debut as Robbilicious is my only experience with being in the spotlight) and its been something new, something right in line with my life lessons, my voice will be heard. My voice. SHEs speak from the heart, I have never been to a show where sharing exactly whats in your heart, for the purpose of empowering and healing the people of the world and our beautiful mother earth.  It was big, it is a movement, a movement of energy and love has been activated and we will do everything in our power to fuel the fire that we started with this project.

  I was honored to be a part of this creation, I have learned so much from our time together as sisters, so much inspiration and love was shared. Next time the journey to get to our result will be filled with love in so many new and more potent ways, the focus will be more in tune with the vibration of healing we are sending out to the universe in even more amazing ways, because we have been blessed with this experience and now we know what it is. collective love is a powerful thing! When it is handled with grace and honesty from the truest place, transformations happen. Love happens. The journey of knowing oneself is beautiful and slow. Hearing my own voice, not just hearing it but knowing the energy it can bring, knowing I am free to express my self in my own most true ways feels…big. These sisters came together and held space for each other to be free. The support is esincial…prefect and in line with all of the data points on my path, in line with the universe and the love vibration we are striving for. When we stop pushing against the current, when we let love decide our movement, the learning never stops. Your heart speaks with strength. When you are in the flow and your blessing cups are overflowing with the waters of love, inspiration happens, every being in your presence can be filled with that vibration!  love happens all the time, in every kind of relationship there is love. people explode with love and the only way to live, the only way to heal is to be in it so deep it is the only thing you live. Knowing your self is the biggest part of love. Be in love with yourself! The golden cord in the center of our selves radiates the most potent medicine for our own being. We can heal our selves with love and joy is the only thing that remains. The sacred elements have been invoked in each of us and this life is full of ancient wisdom swimming right over our heads, our crowns dipping into the cool ocean of truth, right on the tips of our tongues, waiting to pour forth in a powerful movement of love. To know the voice inside your heart is to know that wisdom. Only you can know what you know, only you can share whats in your heart. Only you can make your self whole. I give thanks for my sweet tribe family, for the space we hold for each other, the openness and love that illuminates our path to the higher self.

The Fire…

SHE has a flame at the center of her, in everything she is, every cell, every movement, every voice inside of her burns bright, untouched by the little flame. It fuels her, it dances in its little spot, so mysterious and changing, wordless and illogical, her flame burns clean, smokeless, and clear. If she holds in her sight this crystal ball which is a single piece of her being, the flame and the life water creates universes, IS LIFE. She lets that flame burn, dance and confuse her with unimaginable truth, make her mind scream with frustration at the burning love she can’t possibly understand. It is wordless. The no mind. Her dream reality is twisted and stretched beyond her personal limits. Her little flame is lost in this outlined tunnel of collective dream creations. She is so good at taking the parts that make sence and smashing them into her reality, so much smoke in the vision of now, the search for the fire is endless, hard and dull and joyless. But its burning, let the sky inside exist. The flame can light her sky, it is the background of love. Her dream reality can be open, open fully, bravely. Thats where the other universes live, the space between her lips and yours, in the moment of slow recognized empty space, between her lips and yours. That is where new galaxies are born, the threads of life and be gently, softly, repositioned, nourished. That heavy space is filled with the flame inside of her, inside of you, your own wordless flame in this life of sky, with the Pele plume pushing the burning light into every eternal space…and the smoke is rising.

 Everywhere I turn, life is speaking to me. I have opened myself to the will of love and I know it is endless. The love will never stop. So many imprints in my mind, so many worldly attachments, unnecessary arguments and skewed perspectives can be dissolved. When you are living deep in the ocean of love those things cannot exist. The hangups and the  mindfucks and the judgments can be dropped…throw them into the earth fire under our roots, deep into our mother and let them rise up as healing light, illuminating the path for our brothers and sisters. To know that you are all you have is a scary taught in the dream of society. Where we are taught to fear being open, taught to fear ourselves. The tools to find true love are all around us when we are open to ourselves. Every meeting with another life is sacred, every voice heard is a lesson, every movement of the trees is encouragement, every breath of wind is healing, every drop of rain is a blessing. Live in thanks and you live in love. Soak in your blessings and be open to letting them unfold. Be open to letting your self unfold, hear your own voice and trust it. The flow of life will caress you in all of the ways that you crave, like no other person or experience can give you. Sharing my voice with my sisters, giving thanks with them has been a heart activation, an amazing blessing that can be shared with our tribe. Give thanks.

Sharing Orb


“There is another kind of light, as inside you is another resource. Enourmous Love, she’s a sharing Orb of Water, we all call her our mother…mother.” It’s the words from a Bjork song, from a 7 EP album she released with a band called Dirty Projectors a few months ago. I’ve been livin on it. Super yummy. The words I quoted are from “Sharing Orb” and like to stick in my head when I’m crocheting, or clearing away the jungle on the land we live on. Finding the ability to know what we are capable of as humans comes from knowing the infinite source that is as much inside of us, as it is in everything around us. Love is not a joke, or an idea, or a concept, or a philosophy, it is truly the ability to accept, and in acceptance find the freedom that has been in our hands the whole time. Its simple enough for the sensitive, intuitive, passionate lovers of life that I find myself surrounded by on the Big Island, but I have to remember that it isn’t like this everywhere else. Global poverty exists and continues to exist as a small fraction of people control a large portion of the wealth. The laws that allow resources and dollars to be funneled from the people to the one’s making the laws in the first place are enacted in plain sight. Everyday there are people fighting to keep clean air and clean water a priority as big business buys more and more influence over congress. From tiny babies to outer space there is war being waged by people who already have so much. There are no machines doing this. There are only real, flesh, live people who operate the mechanisms that create these disparities. So I understand why it’s easy to just say hey, all I can do is what I can do. I’ll work, take care of the one’s I love, hopefully have some fun here and there, and be as good as I can to the people around me. I think that’s what the majority of us are trying to do, and we don’t really need to fear one another. The atrocities that are happening are happening only because we don’t choose to love one another. There will always be a very small group of clowns that try to control everything and take everything for themselves. They will always be there, and there will always be a large majority of people that only need to believe in themselves to create the kind of change that allows kindness and generosity to be the status quo rather than greed and calculated manipulation.

“There is another kind of light, as inside you is another resource. Enormous Love, She’s a sharing Orb of Water, we call call her our mother…mother” We can be there for our brothers and sisters, and we can be there for our Earth when we take the time to get to know ourselves. We have to see inside and know our potential. Start easy. Take the time to imagine energy running from the sky, right into your body through the top of your head, and right out of your stomach into whatever situation you want to send energy to. Imagine a person, a situation, whatever part of your life. Close your eyes, or keep em open, whatever is good to you. Just take the time to only imagine that. Try sending energy right out of the top of your head into the sky like a gigantic spray. Play with it. Energy is real and is in our hands to play with. There is no one way, there are only an infinite number of variations on our species that have an infinite number of ways to express their own uniqueness. We can connect everywhere to any point. There is a point of light that connects you to whatever it is you are looking for…housing, money, food, clothes, gas, car, that’s the easy stuff. When we start connecting ourselves to those points within the physical we can begin connecting ourselves to the points that bring the real healing, the real wonder, the real parts of ourselves, that, as they unfold, show the depths of our authenticity, and what a truly remarkable ride getting to know oneself can be. So I close my eyes, and I imagine myself connected to whatever it is I might be needing. Right now, I’ve been connecting myself to my little guys. I close my eyes, and I imagine an infinite number of data points, tiny points of light that are everywhere and stretching out in every direction, and one of those points is the point that connects me to my babies. So in vibing and searching eventually i’ll find the data point, I’ll know cuz it will hum, and everything will stop moving, and then I can take the time to connect the point of light from my third eye to the data point. The less internal conversation the easier it is just to focus on making that light strong. Everything is everywhere beautiful people. So lets share how we play with energy and what we’ve done with our energy so that each of us can know how truly amazing humans are. We’re gonna need to share with one another and learn a lot more  if we’re gonna take on things like global poverty and environmental threats.

And with all of our physical requirements, kids or no kids, we find it difficult at times to carry the type of enthusiasm that encourages you to play with energy in the first place. Its all around us (especially out here) and whenever we need a little motivation please, just look around. Every single leaf and tree and cloud and breeze and bird is whispering, speaking, shouting, and screaming and humming in the most sacred way. The flowers in the picture Robbie took look like dolphins to me. Love is real, lets keep on playin music, writing, performing…DON’T FORGET THIS WEEKEND IS “SHE…ON THE TIP OF HER TONGUE” a group of women who will be performing June 3rd and 4th 7pm at the Pahoa Museum, tickets are $10 and it’s going to be an amazing event. These sisters are real inspiration and have gotten me off my ass doing a lot more since I’ve met them so I can’t wait to see what they’ve put together. Robbie does the photo’s and is performing a couple of pieces. Sol, Noa, Amber Ray, Jewels, Junnifer, Kahalay, Sarah, and Iris Eve. These women are local artists who have dedicated a ton of time to putting this together while maintaining their lives as mothers, spouse’s, and friends. These types of collaborations are exactly what I’m talkin about, and I can’t wait to see and here more from the mainland about playing with energy and moving these types of collectives forward.

You can see me every wednesday at Uncle’s Ava Bar in Kalapana. All artists are welcome and encouraged to play. We like to do freestyle’s, fresh jams, keep it alive and always new. LOVE ON EVERY STATION!
