This album weaves together sounds of the Rainbow Serpent, ignited and guided by the force of the Orisha Yansã; Goddess of the winds, lightning, storms, death and rebirth. Her realm ranges from rainbows to thunder. She can manifest as the most gentle of breezes or as raging hurricanes.

The stories of each song, shared on this album, reveal 'Portals of Light'. Explored and encountered through my search for healing and growth. And sing the exploration through all colors of Light in our existence.

Each song sings about different aspects of the vast spectrum of divine powers & energies on earth. And aims to catch its energy. So the medicines of life may immerse with our soul, through the 'Portals of Sound'.

Haux Haux Haux!!!

Eh Eparrei Yansã, Eparrei Yansã!

And she comes to discharge
The great strength of Yansã
And she will bring direction

Track Name: Rainbow Fires
RAINBOW FIRES (Received for Zion)

Reaching out beyond the stars
Nowhere to go and nothing to show
Intertwining dark and light
Blowing the storm unleashed before

The mind gets in to change the ways
Of the One, the rising sun
Harmonies and mysteries
Frequencies from places unknown

Inside waters over seas
Winds will carry you and me
Roots in earth and heads in skies
All this splendor outside time

Shiva’s cycle once again
Surrender my child in God’s hand
All protected open doors
In rainbow fires we sing our song

For Zion...
Track Name: Sat Nam
SAT NAM (Received for Bartosz Badowski)

Life loves you beyond measurement, measurement
Life heals you beyond holiness
Life mothers you back to the womb, to the womb
Life fathers you to your True Self

Your True Self (8x)

Life takes care of you, every breath, every step
For you to discover your divinity within
Life brings you back to the source of everything
Life found you to represent her innocent True Self

Your True Self (8x)

Sat Nam (repeat)


PATH IN THE MIDDLE (Received for Bartosz Badowski)

In this spectrum of infinite possibilities
There exists only one truth
The distractions we perceive
Inside this glory
Contain the infinite grace of our Creator
Trembling we do
As we enter the highest realms

The path in the middle
Forgives each side step
The path in the middle
Opens all the doors
To infinite surprises
Twists and turns of fate
Where we bow to the Master
The King of Love remains

Forgiveness holds the key to succes
Unleashed as a dragon
In gold imperial skies
The insecurities of the heart
The small mistakes
Are considered mountains
We can't escape

As mirrors of the fountain
The value of your soul
Finds her way back home
To the One
Where two becomes one
Where opposites become conjunct
Where every laugh
Every tear
Finds the lap
Of our Divine Mother

Sat Nam
Track Name: Reino Interior
REINO INTERIOR (Received for Zeger Vandenbussche)

Dentro dos ritmos da ciência cósmica
São pedrões cheios de poderes místicos
Som que está sendo a resposta para a cura
Do mundo invísel do coração

Salve o Senhor quem está por trás de toda
Criação tecendo as correntes dos encontros
Salve a Mãe Divina que deu á luz a todos
Místerios por trás da dimensão conhecida
Da percepção e da forma cores dando
Aguarda o espírito infinito da alma

A humanidade tem a capacidade
Para transformar todas manifestações
Dentro da mandala mística e sagrada
Quando juntar as mãos e formam a ciranda

Nos podemos transcender os reinos
Terrestres de Deus e observar
Com o olho d'águia, com o olho da consciência liberada

O espelho da vida nos convida
A se render ao que vemos
Uma vez que todos nós vemos
É um reflexo do nosso Reino Interior

Reino Interior (repeat)




Within the rhythms of cosmic science
That are full of mystical powers
Sound being the answer to the healing
From the invisible world of the heart

Praise the Lord who is behind everything
Creation weaving the chains of the meetings
Praise the Divine Mother who gave birth to everything
Mysteries behind the known dimension
Of the perception and the shape giving colors
Awaits the infinite spirit of the soul

Humanity has the capacity
To transform all manifestations
Inside the mystical and sacred mandala
When joining hands and forming the circle

We can transcend the realms
(of the) Land of God and observe
With the eye of the eagle, with the eye of the liberated conscience

The mirror of life invites us
To surrender to what we see
Since all we see
Is a reflection of our Inner Kingdom

Inner Kingdom

ZUM ZUM ZUM (Received for Txai Fernando & Sigmund Kristoffer Vatvedt)

Força da natureza
Espirito do protetor
Cabocla da primavera
A criação do mutum

Força da natureza
Espirito do protetor
Cabocla da primavera
Curando as almas de um a um

Força da natureza
A casa do meu Senhor
Vem vem todos Arcanjos
Iluminando espíritos

Gabriel, Michael, Uriel, Raphael (3x)

É a força do Rapé
Abrindo portas e janelas
As forças da natureza
Do veado do mutum
O tambor do coração
Das estrelas nosso mundo
Da luz, amor e paz
Espiralando espírito

Zum, zum, zum... (repeat)




Force of nature
Guardian spirit
Feminine Indian Spirit of spring
The creation of curassow

Force of nature
Guardian spirit
Feminine Indian Spirit of spring
Healing the souls one by one

Force of nature
The house of my Lord
Come come all Archangels
Enlightening spirits

Gabriel, Michael, Uriel, Raphael

It is the strength of Rapé
Opening doors and windows
The forces of nature
Of the stag, of the curassow
The drum of the heart
Of the stars of our world
Of light, love and peace
Spiraling the spirit

Track Name: Simplicidade
SIMPLICIDADE (Received for my beloved, Shakti Grace)

Na simplicidade do coração
Tenho a resposta em cada sessão
Nos movimentos dos meus irmãos
A vida da o perdão para sempre amar

Bom dia sol, bom dia luz
Abraço forte do meu Jesus
Com o amor incondicional
Te amo sem parar e sem mal



In the simplicity of the heart
I have the answer to every session
In the movements of my brothers
Life gives forgiveness to forever love

Good morning sun, good morning light
Strong embrace of my Jesus
With unconditional love
I love you without stopping and without pain
Track Name: My Star
MY STAR (Received for my beloved, Shakti Grace)

When I see you in my dreams
I follow you my star and fully surrender
To lift my dancing arms
In geometry because i fully remember

Why we came here to be
This magic that we see, the past future present
The marriage of the heart
The dance of you & I, it's infinite splendor

Falling in love is a rising because
We can't go back to where we came from
Falling in love is a rising above
Illusion, confusion, the fusion for more

Track Name: Portals of Light
PORTALS OF LIGHT (Received for Beige Arce)

Portals of the light
Portals from beyond
Gaps behind illusion
Dissolved patterns of the mind

The deserts medicine
The toad kissed by the rain
Coming out to spread our wings
The mysteries of our blissful pain

Freedom from boredom
Freedom from pain
Blissful sadness together
In the circle of wizards to be
To be, to be, be be

Freed from chains of illusion
Freed from shadows behind mind
Freed from all that is not serving
The life, health, happy open paths

Hey ya na na, hey ya na na
Hey ya na na yeeh


Through the 'Portals of Light'
We may find the source of all creation
In the flame of eternal gratitude
The rainbow of God
Flows Her magic
Into each magical detail
Woven in this ever dancing mandala
Where you are welcomed home
Welcomed into the center
Of your Divine True Self
