I've been your mother, been your daughter, been your lover, been your listener, been your Mrs, been your mistress, been your grandmother and sister... I have a right to be right You've had your day, now this is my night ~ Finally the time to breathe and unravel the knots in me Under all these roles I've been a woman who needs nurturing I've given everything until my soul was dry and withering Now I'm pouring water onto all my seeds of possibility I've walked your talk, now I'm singing my flight ~ I'm opening my heart to new kinds of love I'm following the stars and guidance from above I'm forgiving the hurts that held my captive for so long In this peace is my power All the love, I now shower Onto my garden of dreams For the world needs my flowers ~

Hurtsong 03:49
My sexuality was scruffed like a dog at the base of my spine Where my serpent hid in a basket made of fear and lies My inner child was crying in the closet of that bedroom That still haunts my dreams, and I don't know what they mean What kind of mystery is festering in my memory? What piece of my story is still affecting me as I'm just trying to be a woman? A grown woman? I swallowed the manipulation you fed me because you called it love But it didn't taste right, so I'm barfing it up And I pity the fool who lost the sense of love And I pity the person who taught you to cut the flowers while they're still buds, while they're still buds The truth will set us free, and the truth lives in you and me ~ Come to the Goddess She's waiting with an open heart She'll teach us how to love ourselves She'll heal the wounds that held us down She'll teach us about sacred sexual love energy But we must set ourselves free ~ Now I'll let my heart grow and bloom To the sky and down my rooms I'll let my love fill the air, 'til it's Everything and Everywhere

Evaporate 03:10
I've been burned at the stake I've been demolished and hated This world seemed so hot and angry I thought the ocean would save me I can evaporate I can leave, I'll pour rain of compassion Rain of understanding Rain of healing love Thunder, lightning, powerful, frightening Washing away all that vicious nipple biting I'm here to love, I'm here to heal If you won't respect me, your thirst will reveal I can evaporate I can leave, I can pour rain When I'm ready Rain dark grey clouds rolling by Rain deserves to be cherished Rain dance for me I can evaporate I can leave, I can stay Will you listen, will you appreciate? Surrender to the deep healing love ~

Your Ocean 04:01
This river is leading me to your ocean In the motion of everything Like the birds that fly as one Spirit I move with Love, I can feel it Mother Mary, I have faith my prayers Have been heard and are answered The universe is friendly, if I will befriend it My life is infinite This river is leading me to your ocean In the motion of everything Like the fish that swim as one Spirit I move with Love, I can feel it

Angel 02:47
She is an angel who flew right down to hell to see if she could help someone she loves fly out ~

Power 02:27
They tried to steal my power They tried to steal my soul They tried to steal my body But now I know This little light of mine is shining from my heart and it is bright enough to get me out of the dark Now I know my power is my own Now I know only love can touch my soul Now I know my body is my home Now I know just how much I have grown This little light of mine is shining from my heart and it is bright enough to get me out of the dark

Loving another is the best thing that I can think of doing Why does it matter who I choose, I'm choosing for me not you The Goddess comes in many forms, and though I know it's not the norm, I'm proud of loving Her ~ I love a man who loves a man, I love a man who understands that love is divine and love deserves respect. I'm proud of loving Him ~ I learned to love at a young age I learned to love in adult ways I innocently gave my body and I learned it was wrong Now I know that I am free I gave my love generously What happened then made me The strong, spiritual woman I am today ~ I'm proud of loving who I am ~ I am LOVE I am LOVE I am LOVE and you are too <3

I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth ~ February 1986, I was born into a baby girl body My mother's egg and my father's seed, but my soul is way beyond me On cloudy days, I look in the mirror I'm afraid of what I see The weight of my hips, the shape of my breasts, am I a deformity? But on sunny days, I see much clearer and I love what I see I accept this temporary blessing of a body This beautiful animal, elemental being I embody So unique and challenging, it's exactly who I came to be I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth Cellulite like a mountainside, and A womb like a volcano Nipples nourishing like summer rain Legs strong and tall like trees A yoni ocean of watery bliss Soft buddha belly with the keys of creation Thunder thighs with an elephant rhythm, and A powerful abundant bum dance I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth Sometimes I feel like a baby, with this full moon face and these soft little hands Sometimes I feel like an old lady, my breasts drip down to nourish the land Mermaid feet, and warrior shoulders Spider veins weaving the web of life Internally, a symphony of Glorious evolution Like Mother Earth, the amazing recycler I eat food and I poo out soil Yes it smells and my body does too sometimes But I realize this is divine design I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth I make peace with my Body, make peace with the Earth Peace with my Body and peace with the Earth Peace with fat, peace with hair, peace with uniqueness Peace with life

I am an old soul in a young body We are all infinite equals with unique challenges and blessings I respect and honour my feelings I respect and honour my self I believe and sing my true feelings I respect the voice of my soul I'm not here to feed your self-esteem I respect and honour you, but if you don't reciprocate I will leave I respect and honour my feelings I respect and honour my self I express and honour my feelings I expect respect in return I am here to shine my love light and be my true blue beautiful wonderful soul If my light shows you your shadows, you can resist or you can grow And if your light shows me my shadows, I will honour you and grow Judgement, jealousy, gossip, belittling energy Were only blocking us from being the best that we can be We are designed for harmony I am here to respect and honour you, while respecting and honouring me ~ It feels like flying free ~

I wanted to forgive you but how could I forgive when I'd already given myself to you? I wanted to forget but how could I forget when I was haunted every night in my bed? What could I give? When you'd already stolen the love of my body from me? How could I live? Without the loving trust and security of my family? If I can forgive you, it means that I can break the cycle of abuse. It's easy to forget you now, because I have so much better lovers in my bed, oh yes Now I rise victorious, these challenges have made me STRONGER ~ My heart is infinite and I'm always connected to all the Love in the Universe There is hope and love for us for we've become VICTORIOUS TRUE LOVERS ~

Twin Flame 04:07
This ocean heart beats to the rhythm Of dancing stars, and the love within 'em People say that I'm naive because I admit that I believe In the love so deep The love of my dreams Twin Flame ~ Soulmate ~ This love so deep ~ I feel you in me ~ All this evolving, exploring karmic lessons Healing the wounds, challenging my heart to open My heart to open, my heart to open, Ahhhhhhh Evolution's resolutions Come with great rewards As I open, my love light shines And I feel you inside Twin Flame ~ Soulmate ~ This love so deep ~ It isn't just a fairy tale ~ It's real, I feel ~ This love, this love, this love ~ I feel you in me This unity <3

Transcend 03:42
There is no you There is no me There is only unity I forgive you I forgive me With this understanding we are free Transcend ~ Mother Earth is healing So are me and you Because we are her and she is us too Where are we going Going from here? Heaven on Earth it feel so near Transcend ~ My heart is open Love is here I'm brave enough to face my fears Where there is fear, there is power Even fear is a friend Transcend ~

about

Victoria is about rising victorious from challenges ~ looking the darkness in the eye, listening to it for the lesson, and transforming with wisdom and compassion.

These songs came through me while I went through a dark night and the challenging journey of healing from sexual abuse. I learned how healing music can be, as many of these songs soothed, inspired, illuminated, and brought me back into wholeness.

Thank you for listening, may this bring you healing and connection with the divine within...

DIVINE LOVE IS VICTORIOUS!!!
