Want to sing along?

In case you’ve stumbled upon this page, that means that you’re interested in some of the songs that are more frequently sung at the Heart Centered Sound Circles. There is always going to be an opening as well as closing song to help set up the container. Sometimes when people sing, they feel vulnerable. Singing an opening as well as closing song also helps contain the energy built during this event so we can take it with us on our journeys, or gift the excess back to the community altar before we dismantle it. As always, if you have questions feel free to send an email or visit the Frequently Asked Questions.

Opening Song – Setting the Container

This song was originally sung by the wonderful Kellianna. She has many albums available for purchase, so feel free to check out her music! To fit the space of the Sound Circle, I re-wrote the lyrics to fit my personal cosmology. I am not Native American and have not been trained by them, so I didn’t want to dis-honor them by using their cosmology.

Facing east I send my prayers away, away
East sky enlighten me I pray, I pray
Air, communication, help me speak my truth
Harpy Eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for visions of peace, of peace

Facing south I send my prayers away, away
South sky for purity I pray, I pray
Fire, flame of passion, help with transformation
Golden Eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for blessings in peace, in peace

Facing west I send my prayers away, away
West sky, move with me, I pray, I pray
Water, deep emotion, restore to great flow
Now bald eagle, I welcome you
And give thanks for balance in peace, in peace

Facing north I send my prayers away, away
North sky, stability I pray, I pray
Earth, cool and dark, cradle me in your arms
Oh white eagle, I welcome you
And give thanks for healing in peace, in peace

Mother Earth, I send you my prayers
Father Sky, I send you my prayers
Oh great mystery, I feel your breath in my mouth
Oh great mystery, I welcome you
And give thanks for you,
In me
In peace
In peace
In peace

 

Closing Song – May the Circle be Open

This song is another re-written chant to adhere to the cosmology that has developed around the Sound Circle. This is an old chant that was written a long time ago. Chants evolve and grow just as the people do 🙂

May the circle be open but yet unbroken
May the love of the earth be ever in our hearts
Merry meet and merry part
And Merry meet again

May the circle be open but yet unbroken
May the love of the sky be ever in our hearts
Merry meet and merry part
And Merry meet again

May the circle be open but yet unbroken
May the love of the spirits be ever in our hearts
Merry meet and merry part
And Merry meet again
