WISHES & WARMTH - Shine Your Light
DEEP WINTER - Look Inside



According to Numerology, 2016 adds up to a 9, which represents completion. My understanding is that collectively, we’re wiping the slate clean for a new beginning, another nine-year cycle. The good news is that we are in that precious, sacred time where we get to envision 2017 with all of its magical possibilities, regardless of what transpired this past year.

This time of year during the long, dark nights, I always make some room for some quiet reflection time - what did I love about the year? What would I have wished were different? What will the year ahead hold? How can I take the lessons from this past year and use them in the year ahead so that I’m not doomed to repeat them again? And again and again.

I can also take the most challenging parts of last year and work on my perception of them. By softening around the judgement - of myself or the situation or anyone else with whom I shared the challenge - I can actually transform the effect of its hold on me by turning it over for a fresh, new perspective. In other words, I re-frame it using Love and Light as my guides. Simple. And then, instead of repeating the litany of all that went wrong, I clear my throat and offer my voice with a new song.

Isn’t it time for a New Song for us all? Haven’t we had enough divisiveness? Can’t we begin the process of healing the polarity? Here’s my offering toward that dream…

New Song

Words & music by Sandi Kimmel

It’s time for a new song
Sung together with one voice
It’s time for a new song
All connected by one choice

Deep down, underneath the din
Love’s vibration always streaming in
Let the healing begin

It’s time for a new song
Can’t you feel there’s a fresh start?
It’s time for a new song
As we awaken to one heart

Listen closely with your inner ear
Love’s vibration louder than the fear
And the message is clear

It’s time for a new song
To uplift and empower
It’s time for a new song
We can sing by the hour

It’s time for a new song
Be the change that it’s bringing
It’s time for a new song
It’s the sound of love singing
It’s time for a new song
New song new song new song Now!

About My Blog:
Soul Feathers - wisps of wisdom and tickles of truth, observations and offerings from my heart and music for the soul. We each have a part to play in this great movie, and mine is gently but consistently toss pebbles into the lake of humanity, and watch the ripples make waves.

Soul Feathers is also the name of the album I recorded with producer Thomas Barquee. He artfully elevated the music to a high vibration of love and healing, truly music for these times. Music has the power to move and motivate, soothe and uplift, and these songs and chants support the journey as the music reflects my own journey.

By sharing my perspective, practical spirituality and positive music, it is my intention to release soul-nourishing pebbles in the sea of our emerging consciousness. By sharing this work with other like-minded and like-hearted friends, you become part of the wave.

Thank you for listening and especially for sharing!
