Story

This song is dedicated to Anthea Francine of San Francisco.  I met Anthea at one of the very first Women of Wisdom Conferences, back when it was held at Antioch University in Seattle.  I was completely inspired by Anthea's dedication to the Goddess.  And to the clarity of her vision for women.  When I got home this song just poured out of me.

ANTHEA

A female soul journey.

 

Breathed by the winds of an Eastern sky

Born on the wings of a butterfly

Anthea …  Anthea 

Shouldered by Psyche, baptized by pain

Journey to hell and back again

Anthea …  Anthea

 

               Chorus

Woman of soul, woman of grace

Mother of the human race

She’s the earth and the sky above

Woman …  she is Love

May herspirit set us free

 

Daughter of darkness, sister of light

Amazon virgin, Amazon might   

Anthea …  Anthea  

Spinning the threads of Her web so fine

Scarlet reflection of all that is mine

Anthea …  Anthea 

               Chorus

               2nd Chorus

Woman of soul, woman of grace

Seeking Her truth, finding Her place

She’s the earth ’neath the sky above  

Woman …  she is Love  

And may our spirit set this planet free

Story

Goddess Rising was birthed in its complete form in 1999 in the middle of the night.  The lyrics and melody demanded to be  released into the world, so I got up and recorded them at 2 am.  I was honored when our Women's Summer Solstice planning team chose my song as the theme for its 1999 annual celebration and women's honoring rituals.  I gave up a tour in Europe that summer in order to share this song live with my beloved sisters in circle at Solstice.  Right there in the middle of a green meadow with no amplification.  I wanted to put it out into the world right then and there.  The agency never hired me back and that's OK because it was totally worth it.

GODDESS RISING

As we learn to acknowledge feeling and intuition we create a cultural paradigm shift toward valuing the Divine Feminine.  

  

She fashioned fire, fashioned bone

Fashioned bowls from clay

Drew some water from the earth

They tried to take it all away

               Chorus

She was the Queen, reigned supreme

Known throughout all of history

Goddess rising … now’s the hour

Stop and feel Her power

 

She planted food and healed the sick

Birthed Her sister’s child

Worshipped nature as the source

They could not tame herspirit wild

               Chorus

              2nd  Chorus

She is the Queen, reigns supreme

Still alive in herstory

Goddess rising … now’s the hour

Stop and feel Her power

 

All through the world Goddess lives today

Strong until the end

Of war and hunger and poverty

A web She needs our help to mend  

 

               2nd Chorus

Stop!  And feel Her power!
