About Lyndsey McAdams
Hello and welcome to my page. These songs and offerings are held with the full intention that there is something in you that resonates with my work. There are many gifted singers, healers, teachers, and mentors in the world and it is very important that you find the people that you feel resonate with you. Trust the synchonicities and your own intuition. In my own discernment I learned that I could trust a guide if they enlivened something beautiful inside of me and they had a presence where I felt seen, cared for, and honored.
My own human journey so far, informs everything that I bring to my work and my music. Although it has not been easy, nor will I ever be finished with learning, healing, and actualizing, I am grateful to carry the techniques, wisdom and experiences that have been cultivated. To begin with, the death of my mother when I was six year old, although tragic, imprinted an incredible awareness of the absolute time sensitive beauty and preciousness of this life. It also led me at a very young age to be fascinated with the spiritual, the unseen, and beyond life experiences. It made for a curious and quiet child, a wanderlust tearful young adult, and a sensitive but fiercely loving psychotherapist, sound healer, wife and mother. Overtime and with remarkable mentorship and synchronistic spiritual grace, I have been led through the pain and into a space where now I can settle into the love that I know is all around me. Through all the time I spent straddling the veil between the worlds attempting to stay connected to my mother, and integrating the pain I felt in this lifetime, there have been gifts. I feel that although more grounded in my body now and more integrated emotionally, I still have the experience of a part of my consciousness staying stretched into the mystery. It is simply my intention and honor to be a human companion to you and to mirror your light, while allowing for that stretched consciousness to pour in loving presence. We are all meant to be Saints (Humans expressing loving intention through embodying their love consciously). Sound is simply one very powerful expression that the human body creates and can experience as an inspirational tool. I have learned and experienced how sound is used in spiritual, indigenous, and mystical traditions, and also how this wisdom appears to be validated by modern neurobiology and consciousness studies. We truly are Instruments of love. This is my offering in the sea of beauty, where there are many others that have the highest intent for individual and collective healing, inspiration, and awakening.
My prayer: May we remember our gifts as humans in this precious life. And when we can remember this, may we use them to remind each other when our fellow companions have forgotten. May there always be someone to remind me also!
Sound is a great "Mnemonic": a reminder device. Though the mind has its strengths, it can also trick us into believing in fear, powerlessness, and shame. The wisdom of the heart always leads us back, our dreams and our purpose; that which is most true. Sound is remarkable in that it bypasses the mind and goes straight to the heart, it is the language of the soul and of the universe. Through intentional sound experiences, we can access natural altered states of consciousness that allow us to open to inspirations about our lives, our relationships, and the challenges that we face collectively.
Sound in its most powerful form, can be used as an instrument of "remembering". This is Sound Mnemonics.
Lyndsey shares the energetic signature of her travels where sound traditions are still alive. She carries with her wisdom harvested from her intentional journey of re-rooting to the lands of her own Irish and Eastern European lineages. Although informed by these experiences, Lyndsey’s music is often seeded in prophetic flow where songs are unique to the moment and are relationally inspired by the place, circumstance and people she is with, in the NOW. She believes in sound and conscious intention as a medicine we all hold, to re-awaken beauty into our world. She is runs psychotherapy practice providing online telemedicine for New Mexico residents, Sound Healing Session online and locally in Shaker Heights, and performs meditation concerts nation-wide.
"Lord make me an instrument, of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sew love. Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light, Where there is sadness, joy.
Oh divine Master, grant that I many not supersede to be consoled as to console.
To be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love." - St Francis
