Your Soul & Inspiration: A 90 Minute Meditation To Keep Your Head Up To

Can you believe it’s 2019? I can’t! The tides of time seem to shift and be stuck all at once, and we find ourselves with nearly a decade slipped into the rearview mirror as we launch headlong into a future. What can we count on? What can we trust?

190f1fcb06c7642e8b809c0b8608d5a0I always find grounding in music, and found myself looking for songs that seemed to answer with a sense of belonging, purpose, understanding and caring for the first mix I’ve compiled in 2019. We’re constantly carving out an existence that’s finding the rose growing up through the concrete.

With that, I used the circumstances that informed one of our Standards of the 1960’s to look at urban life and love that informs that breaking through the rigidity to grow new and healthier roots, to dream, to expand in a world that asks us to contract and conform.

I hope that you can kiss your own flesh and thank yourself for the surviving that you’ve done through what was a tumultuous year that’s capping off one helluva decade of being alive. I hope these tunes inspire you to be thankful for yourself, and what you have and not to fear asking calling in what you need to move further into the person you wish to be.

Happy New Year, 2019 y’all.
