This song was initially called "Be yourself!" As I sang it for the first time, I could hear it being sung to teenagers & children - to empower them to believe in themselves and be brave enough to shine their light!
The song joined with a couple different vocal loops and then an incantation to Ra - which represents the energy of the sun. And, in order to have life as we know it - the energy of fire must always be balanced with the energy of water - Ma. In other words, when we balance the elements, we can truly shine in alignment with our Divinity, in alignment with the Earth, in alignment with life. Only then, can our shining heal and bring peace. Alternatively, when we shine from our ego - it is the inflation of the fire element, the masculine polarity, which over time burns out. It is only in the alchemy between the two that life can be born.
So, may we be Blessed to shine in harmony with life - so that we may inspire life and so that our act of living Blesses life...
You’re Golden! You are Golden.
Chorus: Hey, why you hiding those eyes? Hey, above you are blue skies! Hey, this is no time to cry! Hey, this is your time to shine! ‘Cause you’re Golden!
You came in Grace and Peace and Light. You came to play for you are Divine. Broken are the bonds of uncertainty. You know in your Heart that you are Free!
