You Can Close Your Eyes – Trust

Hammocks at Connie’s Cottage


One of my favorite ways to receive information is through snippets of song. I’m a bit of a poet and I’m enchanted by lyrics. I’ve loved this method of communication since I was a teenager and my friend Alan Krohn and I had entire long conversations using only lyrics from our favorite songs. Music engages the right brain, so I suppose lyrics mitigate the limiting left brain affect of words. Musical knowing just feeds my spirit. I trust it.

Last night I found out about 10 pm that I had to move again. Just part of my homeopathic medicine to clear the PTSD from moving so much from my energy. So I packed up til about 1 am and then I couldn’t sleep.

I was staying in my friend Connie’s cottage, an amazing portal of a place just off the main drag behind my favorite snack shop, Fruitti’s. I entertained myself for hours watching the tiny whirling lights dance and form shapes in the portal just beyond the sky blue hammock with the Brazilian macrame fringe that I adore so much. There’s nothing quite like lying in a hammock and watching the spirits dance in front of you.

About 3 am, just before I managed to go to sleep, I was pondering trust, how we have to close our eyes to signal we are available to spirit here, and the sense of easy companionship I was beginning to feel with my discarnate crew. Of course my eyes were wide open admiring the portal dancers. And then a James Taylor song began to play on the juke box in my mind.

“Close your eyes. You can close your eyes, it’s alright. I don’t know no love songs, and I can’t sing the blues anymore. But I can sing this song. And you can sing this song, when I’m gone.

It won’t be long before another day. We’re gonna have a good time. And nobody’s gonna take that time away. You can stay as long as you like.”

I felt myself drop more deeply into relationship wtih my spirit helpers as they serenaded me inside my own mind. My eyes filled with tears of relief, that I was thinking about them and they sang me a song of confirmation. “You can close your eyes, it’s alright.”

It’s alright because that’s how it works. They will keep watch for me while my eyes are closed. They always have. Literally and figuratively. I can rest assured they have my back as I move more into their realm.

This morning I took some hammock time after my surgery before I moved to another room, feeling so grateful to Connie for her offer to shelter me in magic. I thanked the cottage, portal and the spirits for their presence and love. I could feel they wanted me to sing to them. So I sang the entire song, feeling my heart so full. I knew it was an etheric handshake. I felt myself deepen in trust.

“We’re gonna have a good time.”
