Yanna Wanna/Give Thanks

GivingThanks!

I would like to thank the Great Spirit and the Grandmother for sending this music through me. It is an honor and a privilege to play healing music in ceremony, and all my thanks and love to you, Alberto, for opening that door. Thanks to all the people who carry and maintain the sacred medicines, and to all of the people who support the ceremonies and the healing of the planet and themselves with their time and resources. Thanks especially to Sunny, Adam, Yarrow, Jae, Conny, Ana, Barb, Michael, Jeremy, Gayatrei, Yashpal, Robin, Chris, Mitchell, Bradley, and Tracy May for their generous donations, and to all of the other friends, ceremony participants and members of my family who believed in this project enough to pre-order a CD. You made this happen! I also want to thank my mentor Paul Kennedy, without whose support I would have perished long ago.  Thanks to my mom, Betty, for listening and hearing the message of this music despite our differences, and for agreeing to call me Harmony. Thanks to my kids, Hoku and Jorah, for your love and support, and just for being who you are :)I love you all and pray that this music helps you to feel better and to remember who you are and what is truly important.

CD recorded and engineered at Howlin’ Dog Records, Alamos, CO, by Don Richmond.

1. Lama Light
Violin, bass guitar: Don Richmond

I am a light in a dark world
Shining as bright as the sun (3x)
We are one, we are one
Shining as bright as the sun (2x)

I am the truth within in your being
Burning as bright as a flame (3x)
Remember my name, remember my name
Burning as bright as a flame (2x)
 

2. The Present Moment
Percussion: Harmony Sue Haynie
Bass guitar: Michael St. John
Mandolin: Don Richmond

Living for the future, or caught up in the past
These are both illusions, neither one can last
The past can teach us lessons and the future sure looks bright
But how we live each moment is what we must keep in sight
Chorus
Learning to appreciate the present moment
I’m learning day by day
Learning to appreciate the present moment
Don’t want to waste my life away
Learning to appreciate the present moment
And this I pray we do
Let’s stop and appreciate the present moment
The one we’re sharing, me and you

Rushing through your moments, don’t you realize whet they are
Every one’s an opportunity for being who you are
Each second of your lifetime’s more valuable than gold
So live each moment fully and watch the beauty of your life unfold
Chorus
Sit by a river, enter the silence
Enter the world of a child
Relax your being, focus your mind
Create your dream right now!
Chorus
Chorus
 

3. Surrender
Violin, bass guitar: Don Richmond

Verse
Do you believe?
If you believe, receive
If you believe, it shall be shown to you
It shall be shown
Love like you’ve never known, never known
Love like you’ve always known
Somewhere deep inside of you
All you have to do is
Chorus
(Part 1)
Surrender, surrender, surrender, surrender
(Part 2)
Surrender the story, surrender the past
Surrender you fears, they cannot last, cannot last
Surrender the story, surrender the past
Surrender your fears, they’re gone at last, gone at last
Verse
Chorus (Part 1)
Even in the darkness, I am present
Cause nothing is separate from me
You’re experience is my gift to you
Trust in it, as you love Me
Verse
Chorus (Part 1)
Surrender… it shall be shown to you
 

4. God is Breathing Me
Bass guitar: Don Richmond

In every word that I speak
Each expression I keep
Even during my sleep
God is breathing me (4x)

Every time that I think
With every sip that I drink
In between every blink
God is breathing me (4x)

Oh I remember to be grateful
Each breath it is my prayer
Embodying the Spirit
This presence that we share

With every step that I take
Each new expression I make
While from this dream I awake
God is breathing me (4x)

In a moment of time
My thoughts stop and I breathe
I connect with the Creator
Out and in, give and receive (4x)
 

Oh I remember to be grateful
Every breath it is my prayer
Embodying the Spirit
This presence that we share

In a moment of time
I am still I am being
The rhythm of creation
Powerful and freeing

A single moment of time
Is all I really have to live
My breath is a reminder
In and out, receive and give (4x)

As I go through each day
My breath it shows me the way
I am the prayer that I pray
God is breathing me (4x)

I am breathing…
God is, I am…

5. Container
Steel guitar: Don Richmond
Bass guitar, shaker: Michael St. John

Chorus
I am a vessel, a container for the Infinite
I am a vessel

I step aside and I am filled (2x)
And the more I clear the more room in here (2x)
Chorus
I step aside and I am filled (2x)
And the more I give the more light there is (2x)
Chorus
Whatever you ask Lord, I am your servant
Whatever you ask I will do thy will
I and I shall do thy will (4x)
Chorus
 

6. SafeHarbor

I’ll give you safe harbor, gently holding your soul
It’s ok, rest here awhile, just let those burdens fall
Let me sing to you as you deeply breathe
You are safe, you are loved, you are blessed
Exactly as you are, so rest…

Exactly as you are right now
Nothing to change, nothing to hide
Exactly as you are right now
For in your heart there I reside
There is nothing to fear, nothing to fear
In this safe harbor

I’ll give you safe harbor, gently holding your soul
It’s ok, rest here awhile, just let those burdens fall
Let me sing to you as you deeply breathe
You are safe, you are loved, you are free
Exactly as you are, so be…

Exactly as you are right now
Rest in the love that you deserve
Exactly as you are right now
Think of all the good your love will serve
There is only love here, only love here
In this safe harbor
 

7. Yo Puedo
Shaker: Harmony Sue Haynie

Yo puedo sentir, yo puedo respirar
Estoy agradecida para esto estoy bendicida
Yo puedo cantar, yo puedo amar
Estoy agradecida para esto estoy bendicida

Con esta cancion de amor, me entrego al Espiritu Divino
Yo accepto esta gracias, y ofresca mi alma…
Con esta cancion de amor, me entrego al Espiritu Divino
Yo accepto esta gracias, y ofresco mi alma para servir

I can feel, I can breathe
For this I am grateful
By this I am blessed
I can sing, I can love
For this I am grateful
By this I am blessed

With this heartfelt song, I surrender to the Divine Spirit
I accept this grace, and I offer my soul…
With this heartfelt song, I surrender to the Divine Spirit
I accept this grace, and I offer my soul in service
 

8. Healing Rain
Effects: Michael St. John

Clouds are rolling in across the sky
I feel the first raindrop hit my eye
And I give thanks to the water in this desert land
Well lightning flashes and thunder booms
I feel the rain when I think of you
And I give thanks to the water in this desert land
The healing rain comes again
Your love is like a rain in the desert helping me grow
I feel whole
Your love is like a rain in the desert helping me know
I am home

Healing rain poring down from the sky
Nourishing this heart that has been so dry
Dried up without hope just like this desert land
Your love comes raining down on me to help me grow again
In this healing rain

A cool breeze blows across my face
I remember your embrace
And I give thanks to the water flooding my soul
As the rain nourishes the land
I feel the touch of your sweet hand
And I give thanks for the wonder of your love my friend
The healing rain comes again

You love is like a rain in the desert helping me grow
I feel the vast potential
Your love is like a rain in the desert helping me know
I am home

Healing rain falling down from above
Nourishing this heart with your tender love
Bursting into bloom just like a desert in the spring
This love comes raining down on me and makes me want to sing
In this healing rain, in this healing rain
In this healing rain, in your healing rain
In this healing rain
 

9. Purify

Chorus
Purify, purify, purify
Deeply releasing, whoa, deeply releasing, yeah (2x)

Great Spirit I ask that you purify my passion
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my emotion
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my body
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my mind
Chorus
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my intentions
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my prayers
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my actions
Great Spirit I ask that you purify my will
Chorus
 

10. My Heart
music and lyrics by Kirtana [except as noted]

Like a field of grass on a hill so dry
That the air won’t move and the birds won’t fly
When the ruthless sun of your tender gaze
Ignites a spark that becomes a blaze
My heart, my heart, my heart, my heart

Like a lotus pod with no ground to stake
Floating freely on a silent lake
And I can’t say how or exactly when
But my guard was down and you moved in
My heart, my heart, my heart, my heart

Like a canyon call when the walls are sheer
[I hear your voice, you are right here]
Fill a different glass with the same sweet wine
And we’ll call that yours, and we’ll call this mine
My heart, your heart, my heart, our heart
 

11. Ceremony
Flute: Don Richmond

Ancient, ancient wisdom, stirs and swirls the dust
Bones of my ancestors turned to dust
Blown into my eyes, suddenly, I can see
Blown into my eyes, I can taste them
Tingling with power
I rise, I am free

Rise up from the story, the lie
A new perspective given
Spirit Eagle’s wings, beat about my head
Beat about my head, beat about my head, I’m protected
In their breeze I feel a feather blessing me
Opening to Ceremony

Ancient, ancient ceremony, speaks to me of fire
Ashes of my ancestors spiraling higher
Blown into my soul, suddenly, I understand
Blown into my soul, I can feel them
Come alive in the night
I rise, I expand

Going beyond what you and I know
A new perspective given
Ancient voices echo through my soul
Through my soul, through my soul, I’m connected
In their resonance I feel the drum beating me
Opening to Ceremony

Ceremony
Oh ancient way
Earth Magic reborn
Teach me today
Guardian of secrets that I don’t understand
Ceremony, sacred ceremony
Come take my hand

Ceremony
Oh ancient way
Earth Magic reborn
Teach me today
Guardian of secrets, I am yours to command
Ceremony, sacred ceremony
I offer my hand

I am a bridge between what has come before
and what is yet to be
Opening to Ceremony
