the process

I’ve added the category “composition corner” to reflect the musical experiences and offerings of my heart.

In the eye of God, I endeavored to compose a piano solo from the very heart of my heart. Allowing the meanderings of this focus to translate into sound, I maintained an attitude of curiosity and wonder. What is going to come next? How will this image, this feeling, this focus translate into sound? It was if I was watching a benevolent fountain of life-giving, living water as it bubbled and danced between the realm of the formless and the realm of form. Sometimes it appeared as a still pool. Sometimes it receded into itself and at times it bubbled up and out! It was fascinating to watch and nourishing. As the composition came to a resting point, I looked at the audio track and, behold, it made the shape of an eye! I recommend listening to this composition with an open heart and mind. Allow the tones, the rhythms and harmonies and the silence to flow within and bring you to a state of presence and ease with what is. Namaste, Katie

Sound Portrait of Valor
Intuitively lead to an organ sound – the Jazz Organ, I am drawing the parallel truth that the “organ of valor” is our own Heart – our own “jazzed up” heart! So, throwing caution to the wind, I just went for it. The sounds that came out sometimes surprised me, and yet, valor has many aspects, no? Sometimes valor means being strong in the face of something that needs “shoring up” within and sometimes it means being soft and receptive to what wants to enter in and bless us. Sometimes it means singing your own tune, even if it is “out of harmony” with the surroundings and sometimes it means blending in and becoming invisible or silent.

Sound Portrait of Angela: Guardian Angel
So I wanted to hear from my guardian angel “Angela” and also to provide an angelic message that would be a template for everyone to hear from their guardian angel. It seemed our angels had a lot to say for they began filling my mind and heart with notes and tones and a great feeling of enthusiasm. It was if, through the music, our angelic guides were cheering us on. If I could give them words, they would be “you have no idea how wondrous you are. We are so cheering you on. We are very busy on your behalf for we have so much beautiful information we want to bring you and you are letting us bring it to you now!!!! You are playing magnificent roles in the cosmic sized drama and are the human experience of Source creation! You are enabling Source, which is you, to expand infinitely in limitless directions! And you are doing marvelously. We cannot say enough about you for you are so very holy and so very beloved. Feel what we are giving to you in these moments. There is no such thing as right or wrong and “sin” does not exist. Feel this truth within the cells of your being! You cannot get it wrong! We are all here for experience and the joy of consciously knowing this!!!! Let yourself feel and know how wondrous you are and know we are always all ways here for you. We delight in being here for you and answering your every prayer and whim! Trust! Know! Be what it is you are! Live your holy truth as you know it to be~ and have fun! Joy and laughter and love are yours and we are reminders of this. Let your own childlike innocence guide you from the holy holies of your heart and be warmed by our love for you! We Love you always, your guardian angels!

Sound portrait presence of Source
In composing this piece I set the intention of opening myself as a portal for Source to speak of presence. It felt extremely simple. There is no – thing that is not source, is what I felt, and yet, being aware of this fact is what brings the shimmering quality of life to our awareness. We can never be separated from that which we are, only come into a deepening of our awareness of it: we are one, we are source and source is we.

Book Review: Divining Truth

     A new Book was birthed this summer and early fall entitled “Divining Truth, Straight Talk from Source (the story)”. The author is Toni Petrinovich and I had the rare privilege of editing this “profound book of truth” as it has been called. Indeed, as it was being written, I often shared with Toni – to our mutual delight – that the book was “editing me”!
     Entering the pages of “Divining Truth” you are escorted into the stream of consciousness of a human being who has opened her heart and mind to the Cosmic Mind in order to bring clarity to the many concepts present within earthly reality at this time. The resulting words engage the mind and speak directly to the heart.

     Through question and answer format, Toni, as spokesperson for Cosmic Consciousness, makes available to those who enter the pages within a way of seeing the world that includes an intrinsic experience of unity and oneness with the All ( Source, God, Allah or whatever name you have for the All). In the light of this heart-knowing, manufactured beliefs have an opportunity to lose their footing revealing soul-refreshing clarity.
     Each of the questions within “Divining Truth” offers to the reader an opportunity to experience the answer at ever deepening levels of truth. Without the confines of a right or wrong way to go about Divining Truth, Toni reveals the layers of confusion or misunderstanding that may be propelling the initial question and redirects the reader to the subtle voice within the heart.

Toni writes
          “Your heart, as the voice of your soul, knows only its deepest passion. Exerting subtle influence over your life in           many different ways your heart constantly urges you to experience the freedom of living as profusely as you can possibly imagine for yourself. Whether you live in a mansion or a cardboard box, the freedom of expression is seated within your heart. How you decide to experience it is the abundance of your life giving itself to life itself.” (In regards to a question about “Abundance “, page 87)
     As a result of reading “Divining Truth” you may find that, like me, you are “edited” or relieved of the burden of belief in concepts that do not serve your well-being. You are listening closely to your heart and the intuitive knowledge it contains for you. You have confidence in your ability to divine truth for yourself and the valor to align with that truth. You set your life on a course of soulful expression that mirrors your capacity to be a container for truth as you know it to be, moment to moment.
