This is a song I wrote inspired by My friend Kim Kasperian “the Success Genie”. Kim helps people to release their “inner genie” and accomplish great things with their lives…. When she was my coach it definitely made a positive difference in my bottomline…
Haven’t heard this one in a while… and you know what? THIS SONG GOT ME FIRED UP! :o)
Can You Imagine?
Song #349 | 2/4/06 | CD: tbd
(Where does your genie live? Where does your genie live?)
Hey can you imagine…Letting go?
Letting go of the hurt? Replacing it with love
Letting go of attachment to the push and shove?
Can you imagine letting go of Doubt?
(don’t make me have to shout)
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go PUSH IT OUT!
Can you imagine letting go of “yeah but?”
and the little hut your dreams have been crammed into
And exchanging all the negativity
(and passivity and self pity and lack of integrity)
for a shining castle by the sea?
I dare you to consider the possibilities…
Hey, can you imagine letting go of fear
Imagine really being “here.” Right now. In this Moment.
Spread your feathers, never say never, untie the tethers
Make your quirks work for you Baby!
Can you imagine being who you were born to be?
Shaking off the chains of mediocrity
Can you imagine setting yourself free
From the excuses and the victim mentality
Can you imagine?
Hey, Can you imagine…Living your life with no regrets?
As if each of your problems was just a tiny little test
“This is a test of the emergency broadcast system
This is only a test! If this were a real emergency
you would not be able to feel anything…” But you do feel! Don’t you?
So as the Genie says, “get excited! You are alive.”
Now what are you going to do with it?
I said, what are you going to do with it?
I dare you to live a life of passion and power,
Movement and magic, wealth and wonder,
Curiosity and creativity, collaboration and community.
Live a life full of juice and joy, abundance and prosperity
Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!
Hey can you imagine? Living your dreams.
Up in the mountains. Or downtown in the city
Or on your own private island in a place so pretty
That it takes your breath away?
Even when you’re cleaning the garage or taking out the garbage?
Can you imagine? Bringing healing to the hurt.
Water to the desert. Prosperity to the poor.
Education to the uninformed
Selling peace and love and grooviness door to door to door?
Can you imagine floating like a golden leaf
On a warm October breeze and looking down
On your life spread out below you like the storyboard
Of the greatest movie ever made?
Can you imagine accepting yourself fully and completely
And the people in your life
And the strangers on the street
Can you imagine standing on your own two feet
On the shoulders of giants?
And one day other giants standing on your shoulders?
And one day other giants standing on the shoulders
of the giants standing on your shoulders
while you are standing on the shoulders of
giants standing on the shoulders of giants…
(Where does your genie live? Where does your genie live?
