My Date <3

My intent for sharing this story is to offer some insight on how we are all co-creating with Spirit; the most fulfilling true love reflecting in our lives.

I decided to go on a date with myself. I recently moved to FL, and coming from an inland Oysters!!!cold state to this reality has been an adventure in itself. Across from my studio is a seafood place that I’ve been looking forward to checking out. So, on this particular evening, I felt in my heart to go out and enjoy myself. I got dressed up and felt and looked good 😉

I sat at the bar in the center of the restaurant. The bartender was so friendly and accommodating, waiting on me intently. I enjoyed an internal dialogue with my higher self, and talked about how amazing the restaurant was, the decor, the friendly faces, etc. Beer was buy one get one free and my date and I giggled at that! 🙂

I ordered oysters and chowder…and amazingly oysters are in season right now! A woman and two guys walked over to my section and sat down. I smiled at them, and from reading them could instantly tell the guys were already either drunk or high on something. Or perhaps a combination of them. They asked if they could move down closer to me, as the side they were on was busy with waitresses getting drink orders. I said, sure its ok. The guy said, oh thank you so much and asked me my name. I told him, he took my hand, kissed it and said you are beautiful. (Inside I am giggling that my Spirit date told me I am beautiful!)

I laughed and said thank you, I’m on a date. He said, I can see that and told me his name was Freddie (I instantly thought freddie mercury haha!)

I continued on my date, focusing on my own heart. When the oysters arrived, I really enjoyed the fact I didn’t have to share them with anyone. The conversations with my date were fun, easy and light. The guy next to me would interject little conversation with me, and even commented that he was very close to asking me to share my oysters. To this I replied, well I’m not sharing these but you can try the chowder. His friend and him were talking about all the good chowder in the world. I took out a fork and dished some chowder up into it, and went to hand the fork to the man. His hands were shaking, and it was apparent in his state he probably would not get the chowder in his mouth. So I said, here open up…and I fed him the biteful in his mouth. LOL I would certainly do that on a date and the universe orchestrated that perfectly 🙂

We chit chatted here and there, but the woman they were with had told them NOT to talk to me and I could sense she was not too happy with them. She went to wait in the car, and the guys told me they were going to a bar across the way and I could join them…they’d give me a ride? I said I wasn’t sure if I will go, but if I do I would meet them there. They then left.

I’m true to my date…and she doesn’t really want to go out to a bar, but enjoy some music time at home. The bartender tells me that whenever I come in, he’ll make sure to take care of me and that him and the other guy is always there for whatever I need.

I go to pay, and the bartender says – oh those guys took care of it. My mouth fell open! Of course my date would pay for me!! God surely is the best date. Besides paying for my meal, Spirit offered me words of beauty, friendship, being taken care of, respect, and always being there for me. It was truly a magical experience and I can say with my full heart loving myself has been the most rewarding relationship in my life.

SO…yea…I started a record company :D

IAR HQ Studio – Just Moved In!

I said this to a friend I had just met in conversation about our life’s passions. He said, “Really do you think that’s wise?” Meaning, what the hell are you thinking starting a record company in this day and age? With the music industry in a dramatic shift, people sharing music for free, the internet changing the usual platforms, it can seem that this would be a time that the major record company players are already established and making their bid for the top sales. Yet, it seems like the perfect time for me.

My intention was simple. I’m a musician and artist, but also at the heart of me is an entrepreneur. I’m always coming up with business ideas, projects and ventures. I started a company back when I was in my ‘mommy’ period called Geeky Moms. I still run a domain with this title, but as a business it fizzled out. Why? Because my underlying passion since I was very young was music.

Even before I was in school I was singing. My parents had this amazing 8-track player which also included a record player. I would listen for hours to the little amount of music that they actually owned. I would sing along to this amazing gospel style female voices and have a wonderful time. One day, I realized the women I was singing along to were actually the Bee Gees. Men with full on beards but really tight pants. My mind was blown, but the quantum shift in my thinking was this – no matter who you are, you can portray whatever you desire. Especially when it comes from your heart.

I would dance every night to the Solid Gold dancers. When our family finally got a little tape recorder, I recorded song after song on it. I’m sure some of those tapes still exist in my mom’s garage.

In school, my music teacher Mrs. Bolin inspired me and instilled confidence in my voice. (Thank you to her and all the music teachers of the world!) When I was 6, I sang my first solo in front of the school and their families. I remember the feeling clearly of singing out and reflecting the song. I don’t even remember seeing anyone in the audience, it was just me and my song.

Everything I did was about my music career in training. I choreographed dances for school plays. I took piano lessons, learned the flute, played in the band, meanwhile dancing at home to my favorite albums.

Somewhere along the way, I began writing music on the piano. I collected all of the songs in a folder and waited for the opportunity to record them. It seemed something was always in my way of that next step. What was in the way was me.

My family believed in me, but for some reason I began to not trust the person in the mirror. I longed for love and couldn’t find it anywhere within myself. For a period, I was very religious and studied the bible like crazy. I wrote in my journal and begged for God’s relief. It was madness to look in the mirror and see someone that didn’t reflect this person who was to be a professional musician. I got all bugged up over it and ended up creating situation after situation to put this dream further and further away.

Then I found myself pregnant. With this perceived kink in the road, I gave up the dream. I decided to become a computer techie,and work at being a mom. I rediscovered music over and over again, and when I was feeling overcome in despair I’d run to it. If I was overcome in happiness I’d run to it. But my confidence was such that I decided to just turn my back on it.

There’s something amazing about your heart. When it calls over and over again, it gets louder and louder. After years of ignoring it, I couldn’t take the sound any longer. I listened to this call, and reconnected with the little girl who knew in her heart what her life purpose was.

Now is the time. By continually connecting to my heart and listening to what feels good to me, the world around me has shifted to create perfect conditions for my passions to unfold. I’m creating and producing music like never before. I’m living in my dream location on Earth – on the Space Coast, where dreams are launched. I have a home on a ranch and my home studio is on an island. The studio is ever evolving and the entire becoming into who I am has been such an adventure.

Therefore, my intention for Inspired Action Records was to create a platform for me to distribute my music. By living by my heart, I also enjoy helping and collaborating with other musicians who are passionate about their music and dreams. Now is the time for all of us to reunite to our heart’s call, and listen to the bell which rings for our ever unfolding bliss.

Cheers to what the Universe will bring next in this adventure!
