The red beach house was getting busy with producers, my friend who came for a visit, “A”, my mom walking in and out. All around me people offered amazing opportunities: “You will travel, do shows and sing beautiful mantras! People will admire you like a Goddess.”
5. Steady as it breathes
I didn’t take any singing lessons. It was just me aligning with my body, with my soul, with my heart. I’m telling this story because I want you to know that it’s possible for you too.
Here’s a little warning. Following your heart comes with great responsibility. From a young age we’ve learned to do things that we don’t really want to do, but do them anyway because it’s expected from us.
At 17, I had to decide what I wanted to become, for the rest of my life. How was I going to do that? I didn’t even know who I was. I wanted to become a singer, but I already knew I wasn’t the only one.
My heart was always beating loudly to the rhythms of working life and structure, an unpleasant feeling. Now, it’s MY life, nothing to hold on to; no mortgage, marriage, children, no studies, only freedom.
