Inspiring music

How come we still don't have a music thread on the web? :)

C'mon, everybody! Kidding, whoever feels like hhhh, flood this thread with what makes your soul alive, or just resonates with you, or brings an important message, or is just beautiful :D


Hi Sonia,

Welcome to Openhand! Yes, Tina Malia's music is so beautiful...I listen to her daily. I have done a lot of healing through her music. I instantly connect to my soul when I hear her angelic voice. Thanks for sharing <3


Greetings Sonia :-)

Tina Malia is an Openhand favourite indeed - her music and energy often feature in the Openhand Course Work. Here's the same song, with Trinity's awesome feelings and video set to it...

Thank you for sharing this.
When Trinity says "let go" it brings tears into my eyes.
I havent been introduced to Tina Malia or Karen Drucker by anyone, came accross them on my search for new music. It is wonderful how we are being led into the direction that resonates. I know this is how life works and i am constantly in awe. This is only the beginning for me in waking up.
I am greatful for having found Openhand. This is my first experience in connecting with a like minded virtual community.


Hi Sonia,

If you go to the Community Forum, Sharing the Journey and to Angels Place. Trinity has posted a video there titled, "You are Enough". The background music is Tina Malia, Shine. It is a lovely video that I am sure you will enjoy <3

Thank you, Kim, Maureen, and Sonia for these soft, surrendering song gems. And thanks, Open, for Trinity's "Touching the Soul" video. Beautiful. I wasn't familiar with any of these artists, so I'm delighted to make their acquaintance. I'm downloading their music to my iPod. What a lovely invite from Divine Benevolence to listen to these gems and surrender into the tightness. Much appreciated, Catherine

This morning I listened to Tina Malia's ethereal song, "Shores of Avalon." It's so hauntingly beautiful and so profoundly moving that I listened to it at least three times. Each time the tears streamed down my face as I felt the sadness of letting go of attachments in the 3rd dimension as I continue my journey to the higher world. This song has a special poignancy given that Open and Trinity established Openhand Foundation on the Isle of Avalon to shine the light forwards to the path between worlds. xxx Catherine

Thanks for posting "Shores of Avalon" Catherine. Tears have been flowing all day as my soul cries out to let go....let it all fall away. Your post reminds me that I am not alone.

Maureen <3

My tears are flowing a lot these days, too, Maureen. You're definitely not alone. Most of us have so many pent up emotions to release so we can create the space for the light of our souls to flow through. Tears are like a river of mercy that carry our pain away. Wishing you well on your journey. Much Love, Catherine

Kickass inspiration and a joy ride guaranteed. Canada's Parachute Club in Toronto before all the bells and whistles. Just fun and heart and a sweet, innocent authenticity. What's not to love? x Catherine

Feeling into this song by Travis called "Moving"

Cheers, Catherine

Catherine, that song and the video are awesome!

Thank you so much for sharing it.


So happy this song and video resonate with you, Tigger. I feel like bouncing with joy whenever I see your name on the forum! Catherine :)

This is a song I love listening to that really gets me going in the morning and can bring tears to my eyes... This is Brule a contemporary American Indian band, and the song is called The Star People: A Message for All of Humanity.

And thank you Catherine for bouncing with joy!



I so welcome this video and song right now! It's a time of deep sorrow for my country. Yesterday Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission admitted to our government's historical attempts of cultural genocide of our First Nations peoples. Many of us believed that this was indeed the case, however, I feel that this official confession heralds a new era of healing and forgiveness. When I watched the opening of this video, my tears flowed as I felt the purity of the words spoken by the native performers. And as the music unfolded and the dancers swirled around, my spirit was swept up in a gentle but powerful wind of forgiveness and loving unity with all my brothers and sisters. Totally heartmelting. Much appreciated, Tigger.

Hi Catherine,

Am so glad you were able to connect with the medicine of bear. I confess when I asked you the question of whether you carried bear medicine it was a spontaneous intuitive "hit". Sometimes I am not adept at filtering or at least waiting...the bear came so strong to me in regards to you that I just blurted it out :-)

Even this morning, as I write this, I feel bear medicine around you. It's very possible you have been carrying bear medicine for some time and just didn't realize it. The Lakota say that Crazy Horse carried bear medicine, which both gave him his visions and his courage and bravery as a warrior.

Who knows, maybe we will be calling you Catherine Walks with Bear.....:-)

With love,


This song came to me today... The words are really powerful!

By Incubus
Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I am beginning to find
That I should be the one behind the wheel
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there with open arms and open eyes
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there, I'll be there
So if I decide to waiver my chance
To be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine
And hold my own and drive?
It's driven me before
And it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around
But lately I am beginning to find
That when I drive myself my light is found
So whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there with open arms and open eyes
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there, I'll be there
Would you choose water over wine
And hold my own and drive?
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there with open arms and open eyes
Whatever tomorrow brings
I'll be there, I'll be there

Hi Jenny , synchronistically , last week , i bought second hand an album from Incubus . This absolutely well written song doesn't figure on the album but thanks for the discovery . Love the words as i was dealing with some degree of fear lately and going within it .

Who's gonna sing a song of change
If no one can imagine life outside the beaten track?
And who's gonna stop the running train
If no one cares to dwell and no one wants to look back?

Somewhere along the line you gave up asking
When it got a little too complex
But if you don't question what has been
Does it mean that you don't care what's coming next?

You've got no one to follow
And no one will follow you
Ain't that a relief
That everything and everyone must grow in opposition
To resistance and contradiction,
This ain't no time to go to sleep

This ain't no time to go to sleep

So who's gonna sing a song of faith
If no one prays for anything that can't be bought or sold?
And who's gonna tell the story straight
Does anyone believe there's still a story to be told?

Somewhere along the line you just stopped walking
When the undercurrent got too strong
Someday a lonely busker will come knocking
With a soft and long forgotten song

That you've got no one to follow
And no one will follow you
Ain't that a relief
That everything and everyone must grow in opposition
To resistance and contradiction,
This ain't no time to go to sleep

Oh, this ain't no time to go to sleep

Really inspiring feel... The lyrics are so powerful! Feel that guitar playing, coffee shop singing girl stirring inside!! Thank u!!

Love this - thanks Oliver *OK*

glad you guys like it *music2*

Oliver...very inspiring. Thanks. xo Jen you can join me in Canada where I'm taking the local cafe by storm...haha...but seriously I am singing now with a guitar player and bassist...the universe opened up!

Recently spent a few hours in a workshop with Krishna Das and want to share this amazing prayer/chant. It gets even better near the end so listen to all of it...

Hi Oliver,

Much gratitude for this song. I was feeling a longing to return home to a distant star of late. So I asked Divine Benevolence to show me if I have work still to do here. The song you posted is part of the synchronistic response I received from the Universe, so I will continue to sing a song of change with all you magnificent souls. xxx Catherine


I love this chant especially the way he incorporates Foreigner's song, "I Wanna Know What Love Is." That song has always been a favourite, and I play it often on my iPod. Thank you for this.

I'm thrilled to hear you are steppin' out and singing with a group. I so enjoyed your beautiful voice at the Victoria Openhand workshop in April. You and Pink. Up there there in lights ha! You go, girl!

Sharing "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday" by The Rolling Stones is inspired by Trinity's post today about acting on her dream and publishing her cookbook before exiting planet earth. I have been inspired by this song for a very long time.

x Catherine

"There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams and you will lose your mind
Ain't life unkind…"

Two of my favourite artists, Sarah McLachlan and Pink, singing "Angel"

x Catherine

Catherine where Do you find them? That was absolutely amazing...thanks so much. I'd like to share one I've been listening to for the last two days.

Catherine, thanks for sharing that beautiful song! Here another beautiful piece of music from Fabrizio Paterlini on the piano. I have just picked one, but he has composed many beautiful pieces.

Fiona, this is such a beautiful version. I loved the original (Elton John) but Francis Black's voice has such transcendence. I really was carried away. Thank you.

I read your posting on the Gaia meditation forum and want to thank you for the lead to Jennifer Berezan. I hadn't heard Jennifer before!

Wonderful - thankyou for sharing
I'll be playing "what's up" tonight in Florida - getting everyone to sing along.

Open *OK*
