a place to hold the darkness of the crown
Grief. We all go through it - independently and collectively. This EP is a collection of tracks that make space to lay down your burdens and mourn. This is a space for the heavy hearted, the left behind, and those at risk. We are all in this together.
This EP journeys through the five stages of grief:
1) / To Make War / - Denial
2) ~ Boiling Over ~ Anger
3) ( What If ) -Bargaining
4) _ Dark Night of the Soul _ Depression
5) - It is What it Is - Acceptance.
Incandescence: the phenomenon of light emission by a body as its temperature is raised. As we raise our vibrations we illuminate light. In this dark time we are being asked to go inside physically, emotionally, and mentally. By facing our fears, insecurities, and shortcomings we begin to love ourselves in a more holistic way, thus creating more love to radiate out to the world. In order to harness the power of the light, we must first understand the depth of our shadow.
Meanings of the crown:
1. BODY: Sahasrara or crown chakra is generally considered the seventh primary chakra, according to most tantric yoga traditions. Located at the top of the head, it gives us access to higher states of consciousness as we open to what is beyond our personal preoccupations and visions 2. ROYALTY: the crown is a symbol of the monarchs, in this context I’m referring to the corrupt moronic and narcissistic president who views himself as a king with no accountability or responsibility. 3. CORONA (Spanish: crown) - ASTRONOMY: the rarefied gaseous envelope of the sun and other stars. The sun's corona is normally visible only during a total solar eclipse, when it is seen as an irregularly shaped pearly glow surrounding the darkened disk of the moon. VIRUS: the pandemic that is currently bribing ing the world to a halt.
