20131108-070131.jpgMusic inspires me. All the time, it either moves me or I move to it. Then there are songs that empower me!

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams – I play this to lift me up when I am down or if I need to elevate my happiness to umpteenth degree.

“Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities – When this plays on the radio, it’s like a message to me that “all is well.” I use this when I need to feel okay.

“Unconditional Love” by Katy Perry – It used to be a song I play to visualize a giving of unconditional love to someone. I use it now for visualizations for myself and for humanity.

“The Prayer” by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion – an “all will be well” song.

“Let Go” by Demi Lovato – To help with letting go.

“All You Need Is Love” – Glee Cast or The Beatles – Love is all that matters…

“Only Hope” by Mandy Moore – I use this for going with the flow and for hope and faith.

(For 2/21

What are your “Empower Me” songs?

20131108-070131.jpgI am very grateful to music! Music wakes up my soul and inspires me as I choreograph my life.

More so, I love it the most when my alarm goes off to my favorite radio station playing my favorite songs. This morning, it played three of them when I awoke and while I was writing this post.

I woke up to “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry, and I have an earlier post about it that you can read here. It is very inspiring. It is about loving unconditionally, which is something I continue to work on in my life.

I first heard “Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities on the 4th of July this year. It helped me get up from bed that day, eventhough I was going through a very painful exacerbation of my herniated disc. Hearing it made me feel safe and made it easier for me to navigate my day. Since then, I have been hearing it almost everyday, and when I do, I feel encouraged and know that everything will be alright.

The third song is “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake, and reminds me of someone in my life that I feel a deep connection with. It brings back nostalgic feelings and maybe… hope.

What songs inspire or empower you? The ones that get you going? The songs that touch your heart?
