I remember when I was playing gigs with a fellow musician, a gifted electric guitarist, I would relish those times when we set up our equipment, and we would practice and record songs. It was all evolving and each time there was something fresh and new that evolved from working with someone else. It was synergistic. There were clashes of intents at times though, and it was frustrating.
And eventually there was a parting of ways because there were personal issues that couldn’t be worked out between us.
We just were not on the same page on too many levels. One of those issues was, while he was astonishing in being able to follow my style and sound, he was simply too loud. Even after adjusting the sound levels, it always seemed his sound was ‘in front’ of mine. And while for the intermittent solos of his, it worked, it was not appropriate for the background instrumentation I was looking for.
It seemed he wanted to be heard, and he loved that loud rock and roll type of sound, in which he excelled.
It simply was not balanced. And that was also true of the relationship. There was a neediness that I couldn’t deal with. A type of feeding that took place. I was moving out of the nurturer, care-taking role, and found it to be too much.
I just wanted someone I could play music with. I was not interested in a relationship. But it ended up as one, and that ended up just not working.
But it was all part of the process of creating my own music in my own studio. And while there’s nothing like musicians playing together, I found that I could create my own version of studio musicians to complement my voice and my style, using a computer program.
You probably know where this is going.
A ONE-WOMAN BAND
As we move into our sovereignty, we are moving away from group think, and even from co-creating with others. We are discovering that we have a unique voice, and very few others can match and complement that voice.
We are discovering that we want to keep that voice clear, true, and pure with our own energy. After all, we are in the process of releasing even our old story that was full of toxic energies, of ancestral contaminants.
And we are beginning to co-create with the part of us, our eternal self. And that self is not into neediness, or trying to overshadow our own unique human voice. It wants to work in co-operation with it. It values and respects its human aspect.
But it also is dynamic and sensuous and loves to express. So that means at times it may seem it is taking over. But, remember it’s YOU. Not someone who doesn’t know who you are, and is trying to extract energy from you. Your eternal, expansive self adds to your human self. It provides a sparkle to everything you create.
