This morning I made my way over to Victoria to spend the next few days recording my original tunes for the documentary.
How you know you are doing exactly what you are meant to:
It’s easy, it flows, and while the creation effort is intentional, the expression of the effort occurs as effortless. This was my experience in the studio today. In the past recording music has been a long and somewhat tedious process filled with high amounts of self criticism, doubt, anxiety, lots of takes, long hours, depleted energy- today was completely different
Today’s Music Studio Success
Instead today I chose to utilize the power of positive intention. Before I recorded I meditated. I made a super food smoothy. I relaxed. I laughed. I enjoyed and savoured the moments leading up to the recording session.
The first take I completely messed up the song and I knew I had to find further alignment. Instead of putting pressure on myself to record a perfect take on the guitar I elevated my perspective. I tuned into the positive impact this music would have on all the people who would ever come into contact with the tune and from this place of higher, expanded awareness I went back to recording.
In this new head and heat space the music flowed through me. The takes got better and better and each one was honestly usable- which was a first in my experience of recording.
Anytime I sensed the old pattern of worry or self criticism trying to creep its way in I would draw my focus and intention back to the positive impact this song would have and the reason WHY I was doing it. The big WHY is to support the heart opening and healing of every person who listens to the song.
I chose to infuse massive amounts of intention into my work today and it paid off big time.
I recorded the guitar, vocals and background vocals in just under 3 hours- that is a miracle in and of itself an entire song completely recorded in 3 hours!
I am beyond excited to go into production with this song in the coming weeks and I am super pumped to do this all over again tomorrow and get song number 2 complete and filled with loving intention 😉
Radical Self Love to the MAX!!!
