Coming Home 3/31/92 | Revised 9/30/02 | Song #175
Have you been stumbling through frozen winter fields,
Running from the shadows of the wounds that would not heal?
Have you been like the children who live on what they steal?
Are you open to the wisdom that your pain just might reveal?
It’s been a long time that I’ve been gone
It’s been a long time that you’ve been gone
It’s been a long time that we’ve been gone
I believe we’re coming Home
I invite you to a higher trance
Where the rhythms fill your body and remind you how to dance
Where healing hands can hold you and help release the hurt
Where you can re-create yourself with your thoughts and words
You are chosen to live within the Light
And I was born to tell you that it is yours by birthright
I may be a healer, but it’s time for you to see
You are just as much a healer, a healer as me…
Commentary: this song reflects work I was doing in the late 80’s and 90’s healing my life. I was struggling on many fronts. Physically, I was exhausted and seemed to be unable to digest my food properly. Emotionally I was full of anger, sadness, fear, shame…you name it I was getting clobbered by it. I could not for the life of me seem to be able to do anything significant with my music. Couldn’t perform it or sell it or market it or anything. So I began to study Energy Healing with a woman named Mearah Marqua who was one of Barbara Brennon’s first students. I studied with her and a group of other people seeking to heal their lives one weekend a month. Slowly things began to change. First of course they fell apart even more! Eventually, step by step (always taking way longer than I wanted :o) the healing began and the thriving and joy followed. This song is dedicated to a friend of mine who found me on twitter who is recovering from a serious auto accident… please share this link with anyone you know who may need some healing support. Thanks for listening! Mark
