When HeiligGeist DeutschChill contacted me on my Soundcloud a year ago and asked if I’d collaborate on his prayer-poem ‘Silent Holy Knowing’, I thought “Why not?”
He’d produced the music for it, and wanted me to add the vocals. We communicated mainly by email; he sent me the poem in Word text both in German and in English. I asked him to record himself reciting the poem in German and English so I could get a feel of it, which he did – he didn’t know I would use them on the track! 🙂
I didn’t know him from Adam, and although I hadn’t been to church for years and my belief systems had changed, we didn’t let our different ideas on the concept of ‘God’ get in the way of us creating something beautiful together.
I told him I believed God wasn’t just a ‘He’ or a ‘Him’ (which he used quite a lot in his poem). We debated the topic, but since it was his poem, written from his own belief system (why would a white man want to change his perception of God if it serves him, right?) I agreed to go along with it. I come in about half way through:
This collaboration taught me that it’s possible to connect with anyone around the world in spirit, and not to allow your belief systems to prevent you from working with others with different beliefs to your own.
Another example of this was at a FREE event I attended recently called ‘Meet Your Genius’ held monthly by Ryan Pinnick. We had to pair up with someone we didn’t know, and create a story together; Person A would say one paragraph, ending with “AND…” and Person B would have to pick up where person A left off. I was teamed up with a young English lady, blonde hair, blue eyes. The story we came up with (of a woman who lost her identity) was truly beautiful, and made me realize that no matter where we are in the world, no matter what our background, instrinically, we are all made up of the same stuff.
There was a time when I would stay away from white people (no, seriously!) especially after learning how they treated my ancestors, but my universe is guiding me to be more open-minded.
I’ll always be pro-Black, but am keeping an open mind as to how I work with others on a spiritual level; I believe these two instances are lessons I am learning about the Truth of who we really are as a human race.
In my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’, the main character expands her consciousness to see every body as souls living in bodies, and realizes that if we don’t work together as a human race, we will self-destruct.
I am fundraising to print the Revised Edition of my novel with my artwork in FULL COLOUR so you can benefit from the COLOUR THERAPY in them! It also includes the SEQUEL (Years 12 & 13) which are not available in e-book format! Pre-order your signed paperback HERE – I look forward to meeting you at one of my Book Signing & Discussion Events where we will discuss the topics raised in my Self-help books!
