3 Day Juice Cleanse, 2 Songs and A Whole Lotta Love- Day 350: 365 Radical Self Love Project

Today wraps up my time in Victoria.

The past three days have been jammed full of creative expression, full on creation, cleansing and so much love.

I chose to do a gentle juice cleanse while I was recording for a few reasons.

  1. When I’m juicing I feel so much lighter and brighter. This is optimal when going into a state of creation. To feel bright and clear makes the entire process that much more enjoyable.
  2. Additionally it fills me up with raw life force energy, which is the pure energy of love. When I’m juicing I find it quite easy to dip into deep states of meditation and I am much jollier. Gratitude radiates out of me and I go with the flow so much more.
  3. I also have a stable levels of energy which is really required when doing work of this nature because it is so energetically consuming.

In this state of super high vibes I am in very clear alignment with my creativity. Which makes recording music a lot easier and enjoyable.

In all my years of writing and recording music this by far was the most incredible and enjoyable process. I just got to be in my flow and the results speak for themselves. Without the pressures of “perfection” I could relax, get into alignment and allow the musical magic to flow through.

I spent about 5 hours in total recording both songs. I recorded the guitar, main vocals and background vocals for both and to do so in such a short amount of time seriously impressed me. We spent today in post production land mixing and putting the finishing touches on both of the tunes- and I am so pumped with how they turned out.

I headed out to a meeting just as the songs were being finished and when I came back to listen to the final product I was blown away. So freaking pumped and honestly really proud of myself and the amazing job I did. Listening to the guitar I was really impressed with how good it sounds and gave myself some serious credit for how far I’ve come in my playing in the past 6 years.

All in all this trip was exactly what my soul needed. I cleansed out the body, opened up to massive amounts of creative energy and allowed love in in a major way. The time I was so blessed to spend with my family, warmed my heart and spiked my energy even higher.

As I return home today I am tired but feel so damn alive and in alignment. So very excited for the next chapter of this crazy awesome adventure called my life 😉

Radical Self Love to the MAX!!!

Major Successful Day In The Music Studio- Day 348: 365 Radical Self Love Project

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.

RecordingMicrophoneThe 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!!!
