A soulful song to enjoy!

'6 years ago we started The Wanderer to bring movement. Movement in hearts and souls. With sounds and a voice as a medicine. To contribute to each his transformation and give strength on each his path.'

Felt compelled to share this beautiful song. I hope it feels you all with as much love and truth as it does me.


I happened upon this song on an album I haven't listened to in years and couldn't believe the appropriate nature of these lyrics for right NOW - a reminder + call to action indeed!

This is the music that is playing in loop for me. I often feel like a compete alien and so it reminds me of what I came here to do.

If you're feeling the understandable challenges of Lockdown at times, then know that you're not alone, and it's okay to hurt sometimes. Let's always honour our feelings. That way we can move quickly through.

Here's a masterful performance from REM to help you...

My eyes are wide open I see you clear My toes touch the floor Our world has been shaking on Oh what's your soul saying? Oh is your world changing? Your face tells me always Things your mouth often spares And I hope you know I'll do what it takes To bring joy into your day Oh what's your soul saying? Oh is your world changing?

Perfect timing Hannah - I've just been out 'shamanising' in the meadows and levels around Glastonbury and come back to this. What a blessing!

Thanks so much for sharing Heart

I came across this little story by the musician Avi Kaplan about coming through his darkness, oepning up inside and then the alchemy that came out. Felt to share it with you because it's pretty inspirational. And one of his songs below that, which I found completely outstanding. It's worth working through the density folks!...

The artist David Grey produced this music in his bedroom on a cheap mixing machine when in a financial mess. He managed to crowd fund enough to print the first 5000 copies. It sold like hot cakes and the rest is history. "Let go of your heart, let go of your head", when we have a passion and unleash it, miracles can and do happen...

Thanks Marije. I just came out of meditation also, during which I felt the impulse to play this exact same song. There was a boatload of powerful energy moving especially during the heartful Alleluia's at the end. The false father energy had attempted to... scare my soul into fragments for but after feeling through it all I let go, and I was still there, looking back at him.

Then I was deep in a coffin mummified and buried and forgotten in the earth, buried under layers and layers of density, with the awareness that there were miles and miles of collective humanity buried the same way, still asleep. The scene shifted to 4D in the outer atmosphere where I could see everyone - white, frozen and shattered. There were many of us in boats now, and the heart of our breath was bringing warmth and vitality to the white frozen soul shards, and more and more were beginning to move and feel again.

There was a strong realignment within me as well that seemed to somehow connect with our entire Openhand family, and I was wondering if the feedback loop would hit as well. Wow.voltage emoji iconHeart

I have really been enjoying this song and clip from the latest Coldplay album:

And from the same album is this sad song that seems very suitable to help with processing father issues.

Wow - thanks for sharing the Coldplay song - the first video, Everyday Life. I'd just finished a meditation, where I could feel the intervention energies around the earth like a cage. I could feel into them. Most importantly, I could feel higher dimensional energy piercing through the cage. As I finished, I wondered would I see a synchronistic reflection? And there was the clip in the video of the people in a sweat-lodge-style cage - it resonated deep, so thanks OK Hand SignPraying Emoji

It's winter here in the UK and icy cold today after the recent storm Ciara (how they come up with such beatiful names!). I came across this video by Jonna Jinton and found it mesmerising...

Beautiful selections, thank you so much. Peace peace peace. xoxooxox

Thank you Laura - love and hugs back to you. I am so sorry your dad has separated himself from you all - that must make it especially hard for everyone.


Hugs to you, Pam. My father is transitioning as well, far away from me. I send love every day. He has separated himself from everyone.

I am falling asleep here in Portland, Oregon, to my own videos tonight. Here is the beauty of beauties, "Migration" by Carlos Nakai and Peter Kater, full album with photographs by Edward Curtis

Good night and love to all, ~Laura



Thank you for posting this Open. It really resonated with me as my fiercely independent 96 year old dad had a fall a couple of weeks ago, made worse by hospital staff. I know he has no fear of moving on and I can see the conflict in him – part of him really wants to go home and part feels it has to carry on fighting to achieve the 'best' outcome the hospital staff want for him. I can see it in his moods, one day fighting back and the next wanting to leave. All I can do is watch and support him in whatever way feels right in the moment. This gave me an opportunity for a much needed emotional release as while I try to support him as he fights his 'monsters', I am grappling with my own....



Thank you for the embed lesson! I wasn't sure how I did it the first time. ::++))

In French, Arabic, and Hebrew, this is a poem by the (late) Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, put to music by the great Rodolphe Burger of France. To my ears, it is as beautiful as the Song of Songs, and I think you will love it, especially if you speak French and/or Arabic. I added it to Youtube in 2012 and it's had almost 63,000 visits and many grateful comments. I was there at its premiere at the Odéon Theatre in Paris.  A 35-minute journey into the Beloved. Enjoy.. ~Laura oxox

Can you remind me how to do this, please? I copy and pasted the embed code, but in preview, it just shows as the code. Thank you! :>>)) ~Laura

Beautiful, thank you so much, Open. I had a great healing with my mother during her final year and helped her cross over. Tears. xoxoxoxoox
