Lyrics
___________________________________________

now's the time to
open up and let go
of the ideas and beliefs
that do not serve
your sacred self
wants out right now

are you ready to be free?
in this moment you must be
wield your power fearlessly
like the warrior's energy

you can learn to
laugh more, dance more
you can't take yourself so serious
we are only here for a short time
my friend.. dear friend...
do you feel it?

are you ready to be free?
in this moment you must be
wield your power fearlessly
like the warrior's energy

if we're ready to be free
in this moment we must be
let's wield our power fearlessly
like the warrior's energy

we are warrior energy

Song Meaning
___________________________________________

This song is a prayer.

May we all have the courage to live from our authenticity and power; the power of our beingness, the power of our gifts, the power of our life.

This song is about freedom.

It's about being discerning in your experience and letting go of that which no longer serves you; so that you may be your greatest version. It's about holding and honoring the awareness of who you really are, and what you really want.

It's also about love.. and truly enjoying one another, and the rich experience of this precious, precious, precious, human body that will someday die and return to our Mother Earth.

"For the average man, the world is weird because if he's not bored with it, he's at odds with it. For a warrior, the world is weird because it is stupendous, awesome, mysterious, unfathomable. A warrior must assume responsibility for being here, in this marvelous world, in this marvelous time." ~ Carlos Castaneda

The Story of this Recording:
___________________________________________

I wrote this song in 2012, recorded it in 2013, and then set it aside without ever releasing it. While I was recording new songs this Summer (2015), I rediscovered this this track sitting on the shelves. Like finding a long lost crystal - I felt it's power, magic, shine, radiance, and relevance. It spoke to me - and asked to be released for those who need it at this time.

I recorded this song with a very magical 12 string guitar.

Special Note
___________________________________________

Just as I have grown so much since 2013, so has my sound and the songs I'm writing and recording now.

Something really special about this recording is that I actually played all instruments (except for a couple background synths) acoustically in the studio - in real time, in real space.

I say this, because now-a-days, I'm producing my new songs with electronic elements.. which has a very different sound and a magic of it's own... and has also given me a new appreciation for the journey of what it takes to play and record acoustic instruments.
