    First song was the theme of my most intense romance. Good choices. ♥.

      Thank you, Niki! In each song, I’m actually playing this to myself, telling me to stop dragging unnecessary baggage – like self loathing, banishing the little girl I was all those years ago. Though I do recalling feeling this way about a few of my romances, not to mention the ones who never looked my way, but to whom I still gave my heart unrequitedly.

        I relate to the little girl dragging around self-loathing. I just began a powerful 60-day series by Heather Noell called The Giving Game. So far all materials have been free and I believe they all are. I’m on day 4 and feel like I’ve come across a huge distance, been given amazing tools – particularly to help that little one. The most powerful exercise so far for me has been an energy clearing meditation done through space/time all the way back to the first remembered fear/anxiety/hurt. I didn’t think I could visit that place but I did, with Heather’s lovely voice guiding through. It was only a 13-minute meditation but I already feel freer. Here’s the link if you’re interested (below). ♥ Love & light ☼

    Ok, didn’t know any of THEM either! I must have missed a lot of music in my day…

    I like the way you use music to tell a story – and the end of the Beatles track was a lovely touch. Far more thought- provoking than using All You Need is Love.

    Thank you, Jane! I’m glad you saw in The End part of the Beatles track in the same way I did. I agree. It’s been a favorite of mine for a long, long time.
