Soul Song Messages

Where each post contains a song and a message from Spirit

speaking directly to your soul

to remind you who you are.

My Why & Why Now

This first entry on this blog page will be an explanation, intention, and invitation. 

Like many of you, I have always loved beautiful music and meaningful lyrics; songs where the interpretation of the lyrics is not always what it appears to be on the surface or first listen, but rather is multi-layered. While I understand that the meaning found in some song lyrics changes based on current events, world situations, or the personal experiences of the listener, I am usually looking for a deeper or underlying spiritual meaning from the lyrics.

I have been meditating, journaling, and receiving spiritual messages for over 25 years; it was no surprise that songs and specific lyrics were a part of some of the messages.  However, since late 2019, more and more my messages were infused with lyrics and music. So, during the summer of the CoVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and the protests regarding racial disparities, I began opening to the idea/vision of this blog motivated primarily by a desire to remind myself and the world about LOVE.

I have spent many years hiding my gifts and fearful of showing who I truly am. This seemed the perfect time to step forward and share my truth, in order to gain clarity and inspiration for myself and hopefully, along the way, inspire my readers as well.

Spirit Response:

“You worry so about what others think or will think if you allow yourself to be seen or known. Beloved, we would like to suggest or propose that you will be loved beyond measure for the information, the invitation, and the permission you will give to others to follow and to open up to what they have felt for all their lifetime. Step forward more fully into your becoming and be the example that so many others are desiring, at this time. You are a ‘wayshower‘; you are a communicator. You are the example of how easy it can be to acknowledge and love yourself, feeling no need to hide who you are, feeling no need to pretend to be what you think they want, feeling no need to dim your light to prevent them from being uncomfortable.

You are a star shining bright in the sky disguising yourself as a piece of charcoal. Shake off the protective outer covering/disguise and stand in your truth. You are a star – one of the many ‘Stars In The Sky‘ and this you have always known. And now you are allowing yourself to remember and you are recognizing just how many have agreed to support you in your remembering in this lifetime. They surround you; they encourage you. They make suggestions in your dreamtime; they whisper answers in your ear. This is the LOVE of the Collective Universe, the oneness of the Universe designed to support you in your goals and dreams. And, now is the time for you to remember and support yourself and step boldly into what you desired to do and bring to the world in this lifetime.

This has been a lovely sharing and we look forward to many more. Yours is a beautiful life; you have come through the difficult times, the challenges; you have and are in the process of remembering all that you are and by example you will help so many others remember who they are as well. Love is life and the more you open to it the greater the life/the living you will experience, as a result of your willingness to be who you are. We surround you in love and light and look forward to our next communication. Indeed!”

It’s time to peel back all of the layers
you’ve put between who you’re meant to be and who you are;
go be who you are!

This is your life. …

It’s time for us [you] to be for real.

You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself.
You cannot fly, until you break the shell.

You’ll be stuck on the ground until you finally break the shell.

– “Break the Shell” by India.Arie

There is no poverty of love.

About Me

Hi! I’m Cheryl (alias: CDDoula)

I’m a Writer, Teacher, Death Doula, Soul Communicator, and now Blogger.

My mantra:There is no poverty of love.” This is the truth that I need to remember and the message I want to teach to a world dying (killing themselves) because they believe their source of love is gone or is no longer available to them. People are “looking for love in all the wrong places”.

Intentions: To gain clarity and inspiration for myself and hopefully, along the way, inspire my readers as well.

My Mission/Purpose:

Remember and Awaken.

Teach Love.

Help people stop looking for love in the wrong places.

Encourage a new understanding/relationship with Death, so that one might establish a new understanding/relationship with Life.

What can you expect in each Soul Song Message blog post?

Through Soul Song messages, I am stepping forward to share the messages and thoughts I receive in connection to the songs I love. These songs touch my soul in ways that bring joy, laughter, and sometimes tears.  I am convinced that music and lyrics carry messages that are designed to awaken the sleeping soul calling us to remember who we are and why we exist. Sometimes the message is in a single line, verse, or stanza; other times it is expressed throughout song.  Often the messages are disguised and presented to the world as songs about personal (intimate) relationships wrapped around sacred words received by the writer/artist. So, join me as I share what I experience in the words of some inspiriting, invigorating, and illuminating songs that have touched my life. 

What you will find here is a friendly conversation with, and a questioning of, my Creator, Source, Higher Self/Holy Spirit/ Inner Knowing (call it what you wish, just call it). After I present my thoughts on the selected Soul Song of the day, Spirit shares a message to help me present the spiritual message that is embedded in the chosen song. So, in a sense you get to listen in on private conversations between Spirit and myself.

Logo and Imagery:

The simple logo of the vibrating heart comes from my desire for these songs and the associated messages to lift the vibration of each reader’s heart to higher frequencies and therefore a greater, closer connection to Source.

I will also be using bird images as part of the theme that will run through the pictures/images used along with the heart vibration logo. It has always been my belief that a bird’s song (like the songs and lyrics I will address) – while it may be beautiful to our human ears, speaks directly to the soul. It is a coded song asking us to remember – who we are, our connection to Spirit, our connection to the ancestral realm, and our purpose.  Birds are not only seen as inspirational/spiritual messengers from Source, but also as watchers, observers, and guides in the world of the soul. When I sense that a bird has made a special appearance just for me and is chattering away or singing, I always say “Hello” and ask what message it has for me.


Each post will begin with identifying the Soul Song number, song title, and the author’s/singer’s name and a link to listen to the song.

Each blog entry will focus on a portion, or all, of the lyrics of a specific Soul Song. I will share my thoughts, memories, views, and reflections. Then I will receive and share Spirit’s reflections and message for me and the readers.

Over time, I may try out different styles and formats to determine which has the appearance and the energy I am looking for in this blog.

I invite you, the readers, to participate by searching for the deeper meaning in the lyrics of some of your favorite songs.
