In the starlit sanctum,
When silence came to kiss our faces,
And the air was dense with
Palo Santo and beeswax burning,
The Great Mother spread her scarlet wings above me.
She kissed my face again
And then entered my soul through a carnal crack
From which a ray was cast from inner light.
And as she navigated the meridians of my broken body,
The cold night rang out like stars over an open fire
That stoked the embers of this new, important chapter of my being.
We made love, and she told me
“Son, brother, know this now:
You are beautiful.
Know every being as your own,
Carry a torch of innocent inspiration,
And let no shame harm your will to love.”
And as I wretched over my utilitarian companion
That enthusiastically caught globs of morning’s breakfast
And all my wounds of yesterday,
I thanked her wholeheartedly.
And when I finished coughing out chewed veggies
And the residual temper tantrums of all my foolish ways
I was so full I might say I was bloated.
And we played a game of “I love you – no I love you.”
Her ways are more ancient than anything on this rock,
But she’s got a sweet little laugh if you treat her right.
And she is this rock.
She’s the water that nurtures the garden
The dove that flies by morning’s light.
She’s every bit of the rainforest
Fighting the good fight against our poor world’s greed and ignorance
She’s snakes, and hummingbirds, and scarlet macaws
She’s the fruit that delights your tongue with its fertile nectar
She is the Earth.
And as the distant sounds of a shamaness
Filled the air above me,
She told me:
You have a gift.
Know every being as yourself,
For every man, woman, and child,
Is just an angel disguised as someone who hasn’t realized that yet.”

Inner Harmony is an offering to the divine within everything.Awakening to the unfolding of infinite harmony inside our divine oneness with the universe. Centering the mind in the heart space. Feeling the merging of the heart and the mind as one like the flow of two music notes to create a harmonious sound with the symphony of the universe. – Olivia

Rite of Passage
A companion to the forthcoming music album by Dréa Drury, this piece is intended as a meditation for soul ignition, third eye and heart activation, through metaphysical interpretation. The music and vocals were created first as an improvisation by Dréa. Then the audio was synchronized with a visual score including motion graphics and artwork by Simon Haiduk, as well as an art cameo by David Heskin.
These artists often create with an emphasis on exploring the relationship of sound and light to activate metaphysical aspects of our being, as well as an attempt to honour and represent our connection to Earth and the energy of spirit that connects us all.
This project marks a period in my creative process where years of artistic exploration with visual and sonic arts have come together to express a synergistic vision that brings many elements together as one. Often when I paint I feel as though I am expressing sound in a visual way. Likewise, when I create music I feel very connected to a palette of colours and moods similar to visual expression. My understanding of quantum physics is also connected to these creative outlets, in that I see the material world as a more solidified version of sound and light frequencies. This piece aims to connect the viewer with a kind of primordial remembrance to metaphysical realities that are interwoven in all life. A place that we all come from, and that we are always connected to. Inanimate and animate, spirit and material. Sound creates light, and light is an object of sound or the, other way around.
The piece of music was chosen to animate with because of it’s ability to evoke this primordial and spiritual remembrance. It seemed to me as a beckoning to the heart from life beyond form to realize our connection to the all. As such, another aspect of this project is to explore how visual and sonic arts can effect or activate the energetic centres on our bodies. This piece aims specifically at the heart and pineal gland (or “third eye”), which connect us to metaphysical energies.
With an understanding of these connections, I see our physical experience as a chance to become symbiotic with all life forms and spirit so that we may live harmoniously with the Earth as a graceful expression of the divine. This project, and my art in general is a expression of this life experience.
Jake Korbin recently made a great post about Gaian Entelechy. This piece of mine has a very similar resonance and I encourage you to read his post if you haven’t yet.
