Felicia received the message to write songs, sing and play guitar in her late 20's. Humpback whales revealed the effects of healing through sound vibration to her in dreams. While in Hawaii, she came face to face with 3 whales experiencing first hand their powerful sonar!
As these enormous beings stared into her eyes, everything within shifted. During many solo swims, Felicia experienced phenomenal journeys of joy and weightlessness while surrounded by pods of Spinner and Bottle nose dolphins. Supporting herself by selling her handmade jewelry at the local art galleries, she stayed close to the bay where these aquatic adventures occurred frequently.
The whales gave Felicia the gift of Song, and with it she recorded her first CD, "Do You Remember?".
Felicia traveled extensively, playing at the alternative music festivals and gatherings in Hawaii, California, Oregon, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado. After the reconstructive surgeries of her hips, she set off touring the world, singing her way through North, South, and Central America, Mexico, Thailand, India and Europe.
While in India the "dreams" started again with messages and songs more potent than before.
She continued touring with these songs. During a run of gigs in Amsterdam a dream came that completely changed the course of Felicia's life. At first ignoring it, she continued her journey through Spain, Austria, Italy, and Greece. While on the island of Crete, "the call" became so persistent that she at long last surrendered!It became evident that it was a Spiritual Teacher who was doing the calling. This Teacher was not in the lush jungles of Brazil or along the Ganges River in India. She was hidden away in a most unexpected place. It was in this place that Felicia became aware that the Healing Sound of the Humpback Whales was the same Sound that could transport one in meditation back to the Source! The "Audible Life Stream or Sound Current"!
Felicia left the life of a touring musician to dive deep into the teachings of Sant Mat/ Surut Shabd Yoga, with a Living Master.
Felicia Spent 12 years living with her Guru, a life of service, "seva", "bhakti yoga".
Many new songs were inspired by living on the Beloved's land in a tiny, forest meditation cabin.
Performing private concerts for her Teacher, singing at Satsangs and Meditation Retreats became the new norm.
The Release Back Into The World
Eventually Felicia was contacted to perform at a benefit concert in Maui called "The Jungle Love Festival". This benefit was to be a big financial push to help create an organic farming community for adults with Autism and special needs, the La'a Kea Foundation. During her stay in Maui she was asked to sing on 3 whale watch cruises. Her first day back, Felicia found herself submersed in the indigo blue water, arms length away from 5 Humpbacks. The ocean was a symphony of song, the sounds were reverberating through her body. During this reunion it became clear that it was time to once again "let go and move on". Upon the return to her spiritual nest, Felicia tearfully packed her musical instruments and left for points unknown.
With the raw intensity of leaving her Guru, Felicia wrote incredibly passionate songs about this painful transition, recording them in a rock/spoken word album.
At the same time the requests to lead Kirtans became overwhelming! She immediately shifted gears to melt into the bliss of the Mantras.
This led to the creation of her latest CD, "Raise the Vibration" a collection of Sanskrit, Gurmukhi, Tibetan and Hindi chants for centering and healing!
17 years later, Felicia is still making many pilgrimages each year to drink in the Divine Light of her Guru and is blessed to sing for her Satsangs!
