Music, art for that matter has the power to heal. It is an inner voice, a reservoir of creativity that is inexhaustible. Being musical is not about the skill or having extraordinary technical abilities, it is about having an intimate relationship to that urge within everyone to create. Being artistic is a natural state of being. It is taking life itself and giving back to it - a harmony. Earth Heart Hum was born once this realization began to feed everything I created. Every art piece, every song, every poem came from this emanating instinct to create and trust that what comes is a sincere expression of what need be expressed. Art has this power to realign the mind, the inner world into an omnipotent source of creativity. Inspiration appears at first like a godsend and then it becomes a way of living. Living inspired is knowing that in this moment there is creativity available, there is the relationship to life ready at hand. This realization is readily available at all moments. It is the very essence being creative. Earth Heart Hum has helped me expand this within myself and it is my hope to share this inspiration with the world.
