Freedom and Spirit Signs, Jasmine Gold

With Independence Day coming up, I have been thinking about freedom. We have many freedoms that we can celebrate. What is a freedom that you are grateful for? I am grateful for the freedom I have to choose the life that I desire. This life […]


Reflections, Jasmine Gold

Over the last month I have been reflecting on the many unexpected ways my life has flowed over the years. The timing may be connected to Songbird moving upstairs right after my birthday as well as the upcoming summer solstice, astrology, and the many natural […]


Self Healing, Jesse Stark

I remember when I was a young kid my parents arguing, yelling and verbally fighting with each other. I was an only child, I didn’t know what to do or what to think. I remember just thinking and hoping they would stop. The echoes of […]

Combining Songbird & Stones Throw, Jasmine Gold

When I bought the Songbird building five years ago, I thought I was done with remodeling and moving. Then Spirit called me to open the store 3 ½ years ago and to move it 1 ½ years ago, right before a fire in the building. […]


Love, Fear & Guns, Jasmine Gold

Since the Parkland mass shooting, my Facebook feed has been filled with posts trying to convince the reader that the author’s viewpoint is clearly the right one. Almost all of these posts are one sided. They do not take the time to compassionately explore and […]


Perspectives and Assumptions, Jasmine Gold

There are many ways to view life. A child sees life differently than an adult. A millennial and a senior see things differently. Men and women look at life differently. There are optimists and pessimists, liberals and conservatives, introverts and extroverts… These broad differences tend […]


Changing Views, Jasmine Gold

How has your view of the holidays changed during your lifetime? Do you have different views of Christmas and giving? Different views of New Year’s? Just like nature, my views are always evolving. The fires have brought another shift for me, just like the field […]


The Season of Forgiveness, Natalie Doel

Repentance reaches fullness when we are brought to gratitude for our mistakes.  – Nana Veary* In November we tend to hear a lot about gratitude due to the Thanksgiving holiday.  As awareness of the power of gratitude has increased in recent years, we have begun to […]


Moving Forward from the Fires, Jasmine Gold

On the night the big fires started, there was another fire that started in a field next door to me. It could have spread like the others did, but fortunately was put out quickly. I sometimes wonder why my home was spared when others lost […]

How to discover your limiting beliefs, and why

On the path to evolution and change, one of the most challenging and rewarding discoveries, has certainly been the one about limiting beliefs and their influence on our choices. Those beliefs subtly control our everyday life running silently in the background, like an all-consuming app […]


A New World

A year ago, my 21 year old child Quinn told me that they were transgender. This year, they transferred to UC Santa Cruz and are living in transgender dorm. Using the pronoun “they” like this is foreign to me, but seems totally normal to their […]

Harvest What You Plant, So Plant Now!

Have you heard the phrase “what goes around comes around?” Yes, it can mean karma, but it also refers to getting results from your actions. For many, Fall represents when our energy begins to slow down. The leaves start to change color, and the sun […]

Louise Hay and the File Cabinet

I was trying to decide what to write about this month on the saw day Louise Hay passed away. It was all over my Facebook feed. Like many people I know, Louise Hay had an early impact on my spiritual and personal growth path. I […]

Where is Your Sacred Mountain? – by Shannon Sundberg

Sweeping Away Energy Blocks

Why is it that some people take all the “right” outward steps and are not successful, while others seem to do everything “wrong” and achieve success? This can be due to having or not having energetic blocks. I’ve found that to be true for myself. When […]


Staying Healthy through Community

Studies show that people who are part of a supportive community are healthier and live longer. At the same time, studies also show that more and more people are feeling lonely. They often feel unsupported by the medical system and do not receive the care […]

Alignment and Manifestation

I am excited that Francis Rico is returning to Songbird in June to talk about aligning with the creative energies at the core of the universe. While I frequently create in this fashion, I am also surprised at how much resistance I have to doing […]

Crazy or Wise?

We are showing the movie Crazywise at Songbird on May 2. The film explores mental health in the context of whether someone is “Crazy or Wise.” I have asked myself this same question whenever I get an intuitive hit of something to do. I asked […]

April Rockstar Report by Dana Valley: Abundance

The dictionary definition of abundance ‘a very large quantity’ but how much is that?  A scoop or two of Ice cream is awesome.  A very large quantity is gross.  A cat or two is nice.  A very large quantity of cats lands you in the […]
