KOKOPELLI









"Kokopelli, Kokopelli
I hear your song with my soul..."

Kokopelli is a Hopi fertility symbol who carries seeds, songs, and stories in the hump on his back. As he plays his flute the earth is warmed, rains falls and seeds sprout.

Petroglyphs of Kokopelli are found from the tip of South America to Canada and bear witness to the Hopi migrations.There are some wonderful petroglyphs of Kokopelli in Albuquerque on the black basalt rocks of Petrogyph  National Park.

There has been research done to show that petroglyphs are located at echo sites. This is true of the images in pre-historic painted caves as well.

Though Kokopelli is specific to Hopi mythology he also carries the archetype of the troubadour, the musical messenger, who travels from place to place to enchant the earth and dissmenate vibrational seeds that are needed to make life fertile and juicy.

Kokopelli appeared in my dreams when I first moved to New Mexico in 1984. I dreamed that he journeyed from the  top of Sandia Crest above Albuquerque down to the Four Corners area. Flowers sprang from his footsteps as he played his flute.

In 1986 I followed Kokopelli's call, wrote a song about him and created a tape called Circle the Earth with Song. This tape was the seed of all my original work and I began to do workshops all over the world following in his footsteps as a musical messenger. I pay tribute to Kokopelli's inspiration by re-releasing the chants on the tape as a CD in the hopes that you sing along and find your own song path.

"Kokopelli, Kokopelli,
I follow in your footsteps
I follow in your footsteps..."

"Susan Elizabeth Hale has gathered a magical celebration in song that unites us as a global village! Susan helps everyone lift our voices, and truly our spirits, soar as well! I have continued to share them with kids and adults for healing, celebration and world connection!" 

Wendy Lindahl, Dance Therapist, Dreamworker, Yoga-Meditation Teacher, Sedona, AZ.

 

"I am delighted to hear "Circle the Earth with Song" is now available on CD. I have had my own "Circle the Earth with Song" tape for 20 years now and still play it!..With my children now 18,14 and 10, it is still one of our favorites to sing during road trips or in everyday singing. Just recently my 14 year old on the way back from California shouted "let's sing!" what shall we sing? How about "White Dolphin", Yes that is what we sang for the next miles or so and changed the colors to match the chakras.

This CD, a gift for the new/next generation, is a delight to share with your family, friends and neighbors of the Earth.

I believe Susan to be the new paradigm of  song as was Raffi for our children, and their children and generations to come!"

Song Path to Your Dreams

Would you like a way to energize your affirmations?

Chanting with feeling is more effective than saying an affirmation out loud.
  • Create a sentence of something you want to affirm in your life.
  • Say the sentence out loud 10 times. Listen to the natural rhythm of the words and consider whether you want to keep it the same or accentuate certain parts of the rhythm.
  • Listen inwardly for a melody. Perhaps you hear one or two tones or a simple melody that fits the natural rise and fall of your affirmation. Experiment. If you have a recorder, record the affirmation so you can remember. Even if you don't remember your melody at first, allow another to come. With repetition it will be anchored in your heart's ear.
Here is a simple ritual to use while chanting your affirmation.
  • Create an altar with images you want to affirm
  • Place a lighted candle in the center
  • Find 10 small stones or crystals. After each 10 repetitions of your chant place one in a circle around the candle.
  • End in silence and listen for guidance.
  • Write your experience in your journal.
"When your heart is in your dream
no request is too extreme."
