The text below is an excerpt from the first track of the Song Magic CD. The
entire track gives you a detailed introduction to the concept of "Song" and why it is so
important to "explore and come to know your own Song."
turning of your attention to feel your own Song is the heart and basis
of all the teachings, beliefs and ceremonies of the Hetakas' tribe.
The second track is the actual ceremony for finding your own unique Song. Without a
doubt among the most powerful ceremonies in our time, it takes you to the
raw truth of
who and what you are; it takes you to the actual experience of feeling and
understanding the antiquity, the vastness and the joy of your own essence, your spirit!
Both these tracks are part of Disc 1 of The Dance Of
The Earth Fire Serpent CD.
The heart and goal of spiritual traditions around the world is to know
who you are. To know who you really are.
How do you answer this question
for yourself? Who are you? How do you identify yourself? What are you?
Where are you headed?
Everything has a Song. Everything is alive - every plant, every animal,
every rock, every grain of sand and soil. The rivers, creeks, springs.
The winds. The mountains. The stars in the sky. Every atom is alive. And
every single one has consciousness and action. Each has a center, a
heart. And each one has a Song. Its own, individual, absolutely unique
signature - its Song - that it radiates out into the universe. And each
being’s Song is its own individual, unique, piece of Creator.
this signature, has a feeling to it of intense aliveness. Curious,
wanting experience, loving life. Wanting to know. Wanting fun.
There are many paths and traditions to finding this mystery. There are
different methods used all around the world. And it doesn’t have to take
a long time. It doesn’t have to be difficult. All these different paths
work. But it will be just as difficult and take just as long as you
believe it will.

An excited feeling. The kind of feeling you get when you listen to your
most favorite music. Or doing the thing you really want to do. Maybe

mind - all the details. What was around you, the kind of light, the

signature feels like. That is who you really are.
Our beings, our spirits, have a basic quality about them. A feeling of
pleasure, delight, excitement. And when you are doing something that
generates these feelings, you are stimulating the sensations of your own
Song. You are feeling the truth about yourself. The truth of who you
All the knowledge of your gifts. Gifts that you were born with. The
true desires and will of your spirit. How you connect to all other
beings. How you connect to and are part of Creator. All this knowledge
is in the feeling of your Song.
Even that falling-in-love feeling - it
really has very little to do with the other person. Something about them
stimulates in you the sensation of your Song. We mistake it for
something else and we give all the credit away to the other person, when
in reality it is your own essence that you are experiencing. All that
beauty and excitement and love is the basic nature and sensation of your
aliveness. It is the feeling of your Song.
When you are fully feeling your Song, you’re not being controlled by
your masks. When you are busy being in the middle of your masks, you are
not in the awareness of your Song.
