Internal Landscape

Leave a comment Standard

March your energy down the canals
How could you not, stand strong, stand proud?
If I plugged into my voice, would you hear me clear and loud?
Got my wisdom channeling through, you know my energy is ocean water blue
I like to keep it loose, keep it free, feel my energy move, I like to be me
I can create hip hop beats, but rock concerts are what I see
Man I’m telling ya this is gotta be the ultimate dream
What steps do I need to take?
To feel that rush, to feel like a god
Do I have what it takes?
To step towards this future 
To blow the picture of being a loser
I can see the stage with such clarity
Waves of blue ripping through the fifth with such sincerity 
And a heart open wide, I could connect with the crowd
They won’t be saying I’m quiet anymore, I’m too damn loud
The struggle of reelin in the big fish
Gotta be crazy with what is on my wish list
Some days I’m good, some days I’m pissed
But I know I’ll breakthrough, I know I will find that flow
To master the circuit inside, this internal landscape
You’ll finally hear my voice, you won’t believe what I can create

Standing in your Truth

Leave a comment Standard

Sometimes standing in your truth takes courage. People may not understand or accept what you are doing, but that is okay. Standing in your truth takes strength. The judgment and invalidation will always be there, but will you? 

“You talk too much,” “You are weird,” “You create too much,” “Sorry pal, big dreams aren’t real.” The list goes on and on. Whatever you handle, will you let it bring you down, or will you laugh it all away? You might not think you are, but you’re stronger than it. What if you stood your ground and continued on your journey? Where would you end up? Would your vision come to life? 

Standing in your truth takes commitment. The way you take care of your body with a good diet and exercise, you have to do the same with living your truth. You have to be loyal to your cause. Remaining loyal will provide a payout better than winning the lottery. Huh? How could anything be better than winning the lottery? Well, in my opinion, experiencing your dreams is worth more than any lottery payout. The peace, the fulfillment and happiness that comes with a dream are priceless. 

I often read about people giving themselves only a certain amount of time to pursue their dream and if it doesn’t work they close up shop. That doesn’t resonate with me. I’m willing to spend my entire life fulfilling my dreams. So, all the invalidation that comes my way, it doesn’t matter. What matters is my courage, my strength and my commitment. A silly judgment from the sideline doesn’t stand a chance with that kind of defense. 

I’m an unusual person, I know, but I’m willing to let things fall apart in order for my truth to sprout. I’m willing to be patient. I’m willing to be criticized. I willing to endure all the growing pains. I’m willing to fail. I’m willing to succeed. I’m willing…

Find Your Freedom,
Andrew

Souls Gone Wild

Leave a comment Standard

Poetry is clairvoyance
Poetry is clairaudience
Poetry is claircognizance 
Poetry is claircentience 
Poetry is psychic 
To see, to hear, to know, to feel
Poetry is real
Praise your favorite rapper, but poetry is gay
Don’t you realize their song is a poem that they made?
Born in a world where men use saws and hammers
But the tools I have are in my mind
The creative spirit I struggled to find
Here I am, no better or worse than the next man
I just stand here different, playing with different cards in my hand
Please don’t fault me for following my dream
Because in my heart I do believe
This is my identity, this is the real me
The walls are coming down
So will shame, could I be proud?
This is my voice, I’m going to be loud
It was inevitable I would be letting people down
But if you could feel the way I feel now
Maybe you would do the same
Feeling your power, feeling untamed 
No longer plain, no longer mild
Here we are, Souls Gone Wild

Stand Out

Leave a comment Standard

I know the more I speak, the more I will stand out

And so the world will finally see

the courage I have to build and sustain within me

So, I must move on with it, step closer to it

The spotlight my soul wants to reach

May judgment come and I will release

the chains that hold me back

I can’t hide, I can’t be discreet

In the unknown I will become known

the growing pains for the emerging soul

What purpose drives you mad?

To get up everyday, to inch closer to a dream that must be had

What makes you unique? Would you let it shine?

Do you feel the rush when you visualize?

Do you feel the dream stimulate your inner being?

This clear seeing leads me to believe 

The only thing in between me and my dream

Is me…

Could I forgive myself for the resistance?

Can I wake up every day with persistence?

the courage I have to build and sustain within me

And so the world will finally see

I know the more I speak, the more I will stand out

I stand out…

the Artist: a Loser until Success

Leave a comment Standard

When you are a young artist, people adore you. Maybe you play guitar, sing, make jokes or paint. People think it’s cool. But something happens as you get older. If you haven’t landed a record deal, wrote a best seller or acted in a major film – suddenly, you become a loser. You are just a nobody most likely working a low paying job. Prestige does not exude from your body. But if you make it as an artist early on, people love you. People are proud of you. What about the adults who are still trying to make it? Where is the love?

I remember a conversation I had with my ex girlfriends mother a long time ago. I was talking about what I wanted to major in for college. I wanted to be a writer. No not a writer or editor for a newspaper. I wanted to be a screenwriter and novelist. Disbelief filled up the room like a skunk spraying in self defense. She didn’t need to say anything. Her face spoke volumes. She did not believe in my path. I would come to realize that many others would not believe in my path. It is not safe nor it is smart. People don’t make it as Artists. Only the privileged and lucky get to do that. Sure, being privileged and lucky are probably reasons why some make it. I was not lucky nor was I privileged, but what I have is persistence. No matter how many times I fall down, I will eventually get back up and go for it again. 

A man with big dreams is not an ideal husband. The ideal husband is someone who can find a job, keep it for thirty years and make enough for the family to live comfortably. Dreams of being a rock star, an actor, a writer or an entrepreneur – go ahead and bury them and get serious. Everyone else has to do it, so do you! Over and over I often hear, “That’s just the way it is…” Sure, maybe that is the way for most people, but most people I know are not chasing their dreams. They choose to fit in and play it safe. For me I feel most safe in taking risks. Risks are stepping stones to dreams. Everyone experiences fear. It is just a matter of saying fuck it and going for it. 

I’ve had a little bit of success as a business owner, but not as an artist. I guess I am just a loser. It’s a silly thing to think of and a silly thing to write, but I am okay with it. I’m okay that nobody knows my name or that most do not believe in my dreams. I’m okay with it because I know it will change. I know that because I am determined. I’m determined to make the impossible possible. Luckily I have a wife that supports my dreams. She was programmed to marry a farmer. I am far from it. I don’t fish, I don’t hunt, I’m not a fan of manual labor, I’m no longer into sports and I don’t drink beer. I write poetry, I make videos and I build businesses. I’m smart, I’m creative and I’m a risk taker. I know my worth, but if I’m a loser in the eye of the world, then so be it. I’ll wait until I cross the finish line.

Find Your Freedom,

Andrew

Birth the Dreamer

Leave a comment Standard

To walk away from the grave

Just may be a good way to end the day

With a new beginning at my feet

And a fire in my heart

Inspires my body and soul to meet

And an old way to fall apart

May truth be the foundation in which I build upon

May the musician finally play his own song

Agony and I danced for so so long

Birth the dreamer, a new man

With a smile on his face and not a care, nor a plan

Dream On

Leave a comment Standard

Dreaming have always been a fascination of mine. There are many forms of dreams; day dreams, sleeping dreams and the dreams you want to achieve. When I look at day dreaming, it is kind of like spacing out or resting on the couch, but not falling completely to sleep. We can experience anxiety in our day dreams, but can also gain inspiration from our day dreams. Sometimes when I have a creative block, I allow myself to day dream. Images and ideas eventually come to me which I end up using in my art.

I have an affinity for sleeping. When my body is at rest, I am able to travel the astral. Most of the time I am not conscious while sleeping, but I have experienced lucid dreaming a few times. When I was younger I became aware that I was dreaming and started to control my dreams. I recall wanting to go to a music concert and just with that thought, I altered my dreams and a rock concert appeared. There was another time where I was living in Chicago and I was asleep. Again, I woke up in my dreams and found myself in the house I grew up in, which was in a completely different part of the country. I remember looking at my astral body hands and then trying to walk through walls. I didn’t make it all the way through the wall because it felt very weird and I ended up waking up from my sleep. 

I think all the different forms of dreams are all connected. What I day dream and dream at night about are usually related to the dreams I want to achieve. My dreams are filled with music, writing, comedy, teaching, energy work, etc. Sure I’ve had my fair share of nightmares. They have surfaced in my waking life, day dreams and sleeping dreams. I look at nightmares as energy, energy from someone or somewhere else that I have resisted and allowed to enter my space. I’ve learned that blaming and complaining won’t do anything. It is simply a matter of making a choice to move it out and to embrace your truth. 

When I first got into spirituality I was all about astral projection. I wanted to have these amazing out of body experiences. Over time what I have learned is that what makes me the most happy is when I am experiencing a dream in the body. What does that even mean? From my perspective, what it looks like for someone to be experiencing a dream in their waking life is when their astral body and physical body are synced up. In addition to that, a person is grounded (connected to the earth) and aligned with their higher-self (purpose). Their energy is in movement and they are present. That scenario is what I call – MAGIC. 

What do you day dream about? Have you ever had a lucid dream? What dreams do you want to achieve this life-time?

I offer a reading on the dream space which includes an astral body healing at the end. If you are looking for clarity or healing in this space, go check it out on our web site.
