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!!!

Track Name: Singing My Flight
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 ~
Track Name: Hurtsong
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
Track Name: Evaporate
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 ~
Track Name: Your Ocean
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
Track Name: Angel
She is an angel

who flew right down to hell

to see if she could help

someone she loves fly out ~
Track Name: Power
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
Track Name: Proud of Loving
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
Track Name: Peace with my Body
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
Track Name: Respect & Honour
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 ~
Track Name: Victorious True Lovers
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 ~
Track Name: Twin Flame
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
Track Name: Transcend
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 ~
