The Journey from God-Consciousness / God-Oneness at Infinite-Frequencies, to our physical incarnations here on Earth, and back again, is huge! Passing from the Earthly Realm / "Dropping the Body" (which I've heard referred to as Going Home,) is what I'm referencing, expressing here. A friend told me that just before a Dear elder of his passed, he said,
"My Ride Is Here." I'm dealing with Going / Being energy, like breath cycles - Loops, Trance, Depths . . . I've been around people as they transition and that unique breathing is something that I've tried to represent on this record Musically. The midwifery into and out of our incarnation in these amazing body vessels of / on Earth is a beautiful process that opens many doors. I'm connecting to the communication I have with people who have moved on from their human experience, and sharing visions. Thanks for reading this!
LOVE to All!
