I have another new recording for you!! One that was also sitting on the shelf (like the He Yama Ho song from my previous email). I said, 'ok it's time for you too to get finished so that others can listen! So here it is!! It also features Océane Carpentier and it holds the most beautiful message for you. It is based on the Ho'oponopono mantra from the Hawaiian tradition and it includes the meaning in French and in English:
Je suis désolé pardonne moi je t'aime merci
I'm sorry please forgive me I thank you and I love you
And I also added the mantra:
Om Namo Guru Dev Namo
This mantra from the Kundalini Yoga tradition "asks you to believe in your own internal wisdom; to trust and listen to your inner guidance. It states that you are your own best teacher and you must trust yourself and your own wisdom. Another rendition of the translation says "I bow to the Divine Wisdom within myself." (from the website Katia Yoga)
These 2 mantras I believe are amongst the most powerful we can sing to raise our vibration. The Ho'oponopono practice of forgiveness when applied with self, family and friends, and all the people we may have difficulty with, can bring so much healing and peaceful relations. And the Om Namo mantra highlights our true nature as divine sovereign beings.
To further explain the significance of this mantra I want to bring your attention to my previous email. I mentioned I would explain what singing sacred mantras mean for me now and why I took back the artist name of Ganesh. The deepest significance and probably the hidden meaning behind these mantras is that we are the gods we are singing to. We are the ones we've been searching for. All the divine aspects of the higher beings are in us. In our human infancy we externalized them and worshipped them, but now in our evolution we have awakened to our true nature and grown up.
I believe the Om Namo Guru Dev Namo mantra highlights this most. We have the divine wisdom within us. We don't have to submit ourselves to anyone or anything anymore. We have all the tools to do what is right for us, our families, and our communities. When it comes to our health and the choices to our livelihood, we must decide for ourselves. This is what it means, in my opinion, to be sovereign. Of course we seek advice and we do our research, but in the end we must be fully responsible for our own choices. No one can coerce or manipulate us against our will. No one has the right to impose their will upon us or judge us unless it can be proven we have done wrong to another and infringed upon their rights.
In the Bible we hear the assertion that we human beings have become like the "powerful ones" (Elohim) in knowing good and evil. We were created in their image. We are not an inferior or a slave race. We don't need to be told what is right or wrong, or how to live our lives, much to the chagrin of the ruling class who throughout history have subjugated us, and as we shall see more and more of today, are imposing their "new world order" or "great reset" that takes away our freedoms and dignity and gives them even more powers. But that is more of a discussion for another time. Suffice to say for now that we can choose for ourselves how to live because we have the right and we have the power. Om Namo Guru Dev Namo!!!
By chanting sacred mantras we bring attention to ourselves of our godly attributes and focus our awareness to our higher states of consciousness. We raise our vibration and lift our spirit as so many can attest to when we sing in a group at kirtans.
As for the name Ganesh, in the Hindu tradition, it symbolizes the wise, compassionate, and powerful elephant. At the time that I dropped the name a few years ago, I did so because I wanted to dissassociate from any religious ties but now after what I have learned these last couple of years, I want to re-connect with the metaphor as the "elephant in the room". What people ignore or cannot see, even though it is staring them in the face, is represented in the expression, "the elephant in the room". I want to be that elephant and remind people of what is truly important through the music that I play, through these types of emails, and through personal discussions and relationships.
So now it's time to let the music do the talking! It actually can convey more than what words can. I invite you to scroll down and listen to Ho'oponopono by clicking on the link. I added the track to my latest album, The Return. I remixed the whole album which was an EP (less than a 35 minute album) when I released it in April 2022 but I have since added 3 extra songs, I Am, He Yama Ho, and now Ho'oponopono. So it is a regular LP with 10 songs and over 50 minutes of music. I also remixed the Ascension of Ganesh album and added words to the song, Come Dance With Me, so that it reflects more the message I was trying to convey but which I coudn't articulate when I wrote the song in 2018.
You can stream or download all my music at no cost. I put everything free for you and if you want to offer a tip it is entirely up to you.
If you have any questions or comments, on anything I wrote or what you think of the music, please do let me know. Reading your replies is always welcomed and appreciated, and I invite conversations to further our understanding and deepen our connection :)
Also, before signing off, a reminder that I will be in Ontario this weekend at a yoga music festival and in Mascouche the following weekend. I invite you to read my new bio that I made for these events. Just keep scrolling further down to see.
Oh and by the way, if you want to attend the festival this weekend and have not yet purchased your tickets, I have discount codes! Just let me know and i'll be glad to share them with you. If you live a bit far away from the festival grounds in Ontario, download my music and listen to it in the car! It makes for a perfect road trip :)
Thank you for reading through. I look forward to seeing you!
With much love,
