Track Name: Heaven on Earth
Heaven on Earth by Sue Holmes

Follow the path to Shangri La,
Let the veils part to Shambhala
Sacred mountains, pure and serene,
Enchanted forests of emerald green
A world of harmony, abundance, equality & kindness
Compassion, community, awakening consciousness
Love is the pulse of life and it grows
With every loving thought, word and deed that we sow
Dive thru the sunlit waterfalls of bliss,
Savour the taste of nature’s kiss
Lay down in a soft nest, and dream this to be:
Heaven on Earth as our reality

Let’s create it, and celebrate it, come on lets make us a Heaven on Earth.
We’ll play together in this garden of Eden
Hum with the harmony, rejoice in the freedom

The soil is fertile, we grow our own veg, and eat organic food
The air is clean, the water’s clear & blessed with love n gratitude
Oooo Oooo how we gonna make this a heaven on earth
Oooo Oooo now we gonna realise heaven on earth

The oceans are crystal clear and the seas are full of fishes again
Now the animals are treated with respect and the whole worlds becoming breatharian
Smell the forests, growing in abundance, like the flowers and bees
We’ll work together, make life sweet for all, and dance as one family
Oooo Oooo how we gonna make this a heaven on earth
Oooo Oooo now we gonna realise heaven on earth

We’ll teach the children to honour nature, love one another and build their own homes
We’ll share the magic thats all around, play with the fairies, make friends with the gnomes
Lets celebrate, get drunk on berry juice, and tree sap champagne
Make love, yoni meets lingham, sex is sacred again
Oooo Oooo how we gonna make this a heaven on earth
Oooo Oooo now we gonna realise heaven on earth
Let’s create it, and celebrate it, come on lets make us Heaven on Earth
We’ll play together in this garden of Eden
Hum with the harmony, rejoice in the freedom

Paradise, this could be paradise, see the happiness in your loved ones eyes
Shambala & Shangri La, dance with the unlimited love thats inside
Rules fall away and love shows us the way, this is how we make us a heaven on earth
Imagine it, go for it, this is how we realise heaven on earth
Dream of it, dream of it, this is how we realise heaven on earth
Track Name: Hummingbird
Hummingbird - by Sue Holmes

Chorus:
HUMMINGBIRD, HUMMINGBIRD,
VIBRATING WITH JOY AND RADIATING LIGHT
SPARKLING BEAUTY OF HEAVENLY DELIGHT
OUR HEARTS FULL OF WARMTH AND SHINING BRIGHT

1. If fear has frozen the trust in our life
Those insecure kidneys are arrogant with fright
But the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows…

So now we’re moving forwards with trust in ourselves
Natural monkeys who express themselves...
And the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows….

Chorus


2. If sadness and grief are a heavy burden
Lungs full of suffering, a hopeless victim
But the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows…
So we let go and open to inspiration
Creative with an eagles intuition
And the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows….

Chorus

3. If anger and rage keep causing us pain
A liver of resentment, full of stubbornness and blame
But the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows…
So now we live our life-force spontaneously
Courageous tigers with flexibility
And the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows….

Chorus

4. If stress and worry are filling us with dread
A stomach of neurosis and stuck in our heads
But the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes, so our
sweetness and light grows…
So we drop being so serious and set ourselves free
Bears of discernment and clarity
And the hummingbird knows,
and where the hummingbird goes,
so our sweetness and light grows….

Chorus x 2
Track Name: Lose your Self
Lose your Self - by Sue Holmes

1. On a daily basis, how much joy do you repress?
Lose yourself in laughter, how much bliss can you express
Be like the fool in trust jump off, innocent as a clown
Happiness is your birthright, not a stressful frown

Chorus:
LOSE YOUR SELF IN LAU-AU-AU-AUGHTER!
LOSE YOUR SELF IN LAU-AU-AU-AUGHTER!
LOSE YOUR SELF!

2. Lose yourself in Laughter, feel it bubble from within
The fire of joy is growing, let us see your playful grin
Maitreya and Uzume can help you dance and spin
Bountiful and blooming, laughter is best medicine

Chorus

3. A funny thing about laughter is it is contagious
Once someone starts, its spreads and can become uproarious
Cracking up with belly laughs, shrieks n howls n snickers,
Rolling in the aisles, with whoops, guffaws and titters

Chorus

4. Take your stress and patterns and tie them in a bow
Blow them into cartoon shapes and have a snort and crow,
Chuckle and a giggle, don’t take them seriously,
In the end we’ll all wake up from this tragicomedy

Chorus
Track Name: Wild
Wild - by Sue Holmes

Can you feel the wonder, can you see with fresh eyes
The indescribable beauty, of our everyday skies.
See thru the eyes of beauty, so many forms of life,
All moving on instinct, we’re feeling wild tonight

We're got fur and scales and hoofs and claws,
Fins and horns and wings and paws,
And we jump and we run and we crawl and swing,
Fly and soar and glide and swim.
We're a hootin’ and a crowing and a mooing and roaring
Purring and a hissing and a snorting and a howling
And a baaring and a blowing and a barking and a braying
Growling and a buzzing and a croakin’ and a neighing

Can you feel the power of the fire deep inside
Can you sense the web threads that connect all life
Feel this body with power of our animal guides
We let our human selves go, we’re feeling wild tonight

We’re courageous and fierce and dignified and strong
To the earth, sea, sky and forest we belong
We are present & intelligent, beautiful and graceful
Psychic, telepathic, & wise and playful.
And we hunt for what we need, protect our young
Trusting in the rhythms of nature all along
And we intuitively know how to live in harmony
Belonging, connected & magical and free.

Can you hear the calling of our animal kin
Will you respond and honour their power and medicine
Will you respond and honour their power and medicine
Track Name: Make Honey with the Bees
Make Honey with the Bees - by Sue Holmes

1. Let Nature inspire,
Your creative fire,
With the light in each breath,
May your truth be refreshed.
Remember who you are,
A child of earth, sun and star,
On a spiritual journey,
From forever to infinity

Chorus:
SO LET’S DANCE WITH THE WIND
AND SING WITH THE TREES
FLY HIGH WITH THE BIRDS
MAKE HONEY WITH THE BEES

2. In the green of the forest, in an ocean of deep blue
The patterns of nature, speak a poetry so true
Let the drumbeat call you home,
May the whale song touch your soul
Feel the mountains power and grace,
And the angels feathery embrace.

Chorus

3. We’ve sat in circles before, round a fire with our tribe
Now our ancestors stand, behind us as our guides
May the embers of those fires, burn on in our hearts
As the stars in the sky, are the camp fires of those past,
Listen out for their whispers, in birdsong and breeze
In soft waters falling, and in dreams while you sleep.

Chorus X 3

Track Name: The Honey in the Sting
The Honey in the Sting - by Sue Holmes

1. Now here’s a funny thing, There’s Honey in the sting
In the heart of the wreckage, there’s treasure therein.
Spin gold from the darkness, Buds shoot from the carnage
As you are reborn, like a rose amongst the thorns

How do we feel compassion without knowing pain
How do we learn forgiveness without being betrayed
With the opportunity for the biggest shift
//So our deepest wound… becomes the greatest gift// x3

2. When our tide has gone out, our bare beach is revealed
Stripped back to the debris that needs to be healed
Breath deep into your heart, transform all in the fire
Refocus your intent upon your innermost desires

Sure without the pain, life would have been easier
But I know I would have turned out shallower
This journey has made me who I am today
//‘Get bitter or get better’… is what we say.// x3

3. As you purge your bitterness, and drop the victim lens,
Transmuting poisons in a cover all cleanse
Join your wound and desire in a symbiotic union
Conceive a juice within, fuel your dreams to begin

Reclaim your essence, its time to emerge and shine
Birth your healing, art and song, and find your tribe
Let your flowers blossom & your fruits become ripe
// Lets all share the harvest…and celebrate life // x3
Track Name: Bless this Forest
Bless this Forest - Sue Holmes

Chorus
Aho! to the spirits of the rocks and the stones
Aho! to the soil that is our ancestors bones
Aho! to the spirits of the plants and the trees
Aho! to the mermaids of the rivers and seas
Aho! to the dragons of the earth and sky
Bless this forest to grow and thrive

Heart-core, you know the score
Walking in the footsteps of bears, wolves and boar
The wildness comes from deep within
Flows in all the juices held within our skin
It's in the light that shines in every cell in our being
Divine spark of life that lights up our seeing
It's in the nectar of the flowers that exquisitely bloom
It's in the cosmic forces of the stars, sun and moon
It’s in the sap that rises up in the trees
It's the hum and song that’s carried by the breeze
The magic you see…
Is the birds and the bees…

Chorus

Heart-core, you know the score
Love is the power and there’s always more
In the fertile creation of the divine plan,
Breaths through every movement of Venus & Pan.
A force that is flowing through all things alive
Essential essence, mother nature’s sex drive
It is natural and pure, pulsating with life-force
In infinite fractals from the earth back to source
It’s in the sap that rises up in the trees
Its the hum and song that’s carried by the breeze
The magic you see…is the birds and the bees.

Chorus

Heart-core, your know the score
Its in the bugs and mushrooms on the forest floor
In the freedom of the fox to roam at night
For the gentleness of deer in a glade at first light
It’s in the play of an otter in a tumbling stream
And in our belonging to a sacred dream
Rooted and filled with heavenly spirit
And a loving heart of right relationship
It’s in the sap that rises up in the trees
Its the hum and song that’s carried by the breeze,
The magic you see….…
Is the birds and the bees.
Track Name: Ho'oponopono
Ho’oponopono - by Sue Holmes

Chorus:

//I’m sorry
Please forgive me
I love you
Thank you// x2


1. This is the Hawaiian Ho’Oponopono prayer
That lifts our guilt shame and despair
For unconscious acts that we regret
To offer our remorse for our karmic debt

Chorus

2. Feel how these words can set us free
With humble heartfelt sincerity
As we forgive so we are forgiven
Gratitude for the grace that is given

Chorus

3. We can even clear collectively
All the wounds of humanity
Since I am you and you are me
Unity in responsibility

Chorus

4. As we transform the patterns of the past
We can all be free at last
Thru repentance, forgiveness, love & gratitude
Living in the present, clear & renewed

Chorus

5. Say it with passion, sing it with mirth
Into the waters and all around the earth
Sing it to the animals, forests and seas
Write it as a prayer flag flying in the breeze

Chorus

Hawaiian Chorus:
E kala mai ia'u  
E kala mai ia’u,
Aloha au ia 'oe,
Mahalo ia ‘oe

(Phonetically):
E kala my arr oo,
E kala my arr oo.
Aloha ow ya away,
Mahalo ya away…

Chorus
