Janie Worm

From the CD Set Me Free

CH: I wanna wake up. I wanna wake up in time to find the answers.
I wanna wake up. I wanna wake up to my heart, Soul and mind.
I wanna make the most of every moment and anything I do.
And as I wake up to myself, I wake up to you

Life, it teaches me better. It shows me where I am inside.
And life is fair no matter how it appears. And when I just don’t understand….

CH: I wanna wake up. I wanna wake up in time to find the answers.
I wanna wake up. I wanna wake up to my heart, Soul and mind.
I wanna make the most of every moment and anything I do.
And as I wake up to myself, I wake up to you

Love is always the answer no matter how things seem outside.
The best place to start is my open heart, and when I’m in over my head….

CH: I wanna wake up. I wanna wake up in time to find the answers.
I wanna wake up. I wanna wake up to my heart, Soul and mind.
I wanna make the most of every moment and anything I do.
And as I wake up to myself, I wake up to you

To awaken my heart in the now….
I sing…. HU……
I sing…. HU…….
Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

From Set Me Free, released 2017.

Insider Notes

In my personal experience, I learn a lot in my everyday interactions with the world around me. My hope is to take risks now and then; to stretch beyond my “usual” and wake up dormant areas. Recording this CD definitely woke up parts of me that I was unaware of before.

When in the studio we were hearing a keyboard in the mix of “Wake Up”. Since a lot of the tracks on this CD are DIY, I gave it a try. After a few playful takes and some skillful sound knitting by Gary, it turned out wonderfully well.

A friend just recently mentioned that we can stay in our comfort zone, or branch out… where the magic happens.  I think that speaks to the desire of continuing to reach for greater awareness while navigating daily life. When we “go for it!” magical things can happen!
