Songs of the Tree of Peace
“I have been listening to your album on repeat since last night. In my car to work, at work and at home. All day! I love all the music, but I really love ‘Child of Creation’. It is so grounding and so soft and positive. Thank you!”
Scroll down to listen to my digital album Songs of the Tree of Peace
Songs of the Tree of Peace is the first music album of Myrthe Lisanne. The album contains songs in her native language: Dutch, but also songs in English. The songs on the album are the very first songs Myrthe Lisanne has ever written and she wrote most of the songs in 2018 and 2019.
She wrote songs about her own personal development journey, like ‘Verslaafd aan de liefde’. This song is about the struggle with her severe fear of failure she once faced while studying at the conservatory and ‘Klaar’ which is about being finally ready to live the life of her dreams. Furthermore the album contains songs to sing a long like Moonchild’s dream, about her purpose in life like Child of creation and about her love for life like Heaven.
Once when she was lying in bed at the end of 2018, Myrthe had a vision of her being a tree. In this vision she discovered her soul’s purpose in this life: being like a tree. Standing firmly and rooted, and absorbing wisdom, inspiration and creativity out of her roots and making beautiful music and artwork out of this (the branches, leaves and flowers). She later discovered the meaning of her name: a (little) tree!
Songs of the Tree of Peace has been recorded, edited and released all by Myrthe Lisanne.
‘Klaar’ is a song in my mother tongue. And if you translate it, it literally means ‘ready.’
I wrote this song at the beginning of 2019 when I just finished a beautiful personal development period in which I discovered my purpose in life and my biggest dream: to be an artist, a singer, writer and creator, and to make a living out of that.
I felt so ready. So ready that I finally could feel enough self worth, and love to listen to my heart’s desire. Ready to start walking my life’s path and to fulfill my purpose. Ready to finally embrace everything that I am, to see myself as worthy as any other human being. Ready to finally say: world here I am. I am coming for you. Ready to finally just be, and live and have fun and follow my intuition.
With this song I devoted my life to being a singer- songweaver, artist and creator: spreading peace and love with my voice and singing new worlds into being.
Child of creation
Child of creation
Child of creation is one of those songs that are very dear to me. Every time that I sing this song it touches my heart.
Child of creation really feels as my soul’s song. When I wrote this song it was as if my soul spoke to me and sang to me and as if we created this song together.
It is a very soft and joyeus song, almost like a little lullaby. It feels so sweet to me, and loving and caring.
When the song came to me, I felt my purpose in life so strongly, the reason for me to be here on earth was so clear: to be a child of creation, being a creator, channeling messages and spreading peace, love and light through and with my artwork.
Verslaafd aan de liefde
Verslaafd aan de liefde
‘Verslaafd aan de liefde’ is another song in my native language (Dutch). Literally translated it means: addicted to love.
When I was 18 years old I studied at the conservatory in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Unfortunately I didn’t finish my studies there because I had such a big fear of failure that was standing in the way. I couldn’t perform the way I could without the fear and pressure, and the way the school wanted me to. Then all my joy, trust and strength to continue slipped away and I felt a little burned out, overanxious and just sad.
I quit and left Rotterdam, moved back to Leiden (my hometown), to rest a little bit after this intense period, and started studying Psychology.
For years I didn’t sing a lot, I was still anxious, and disappointed in myself.
4 years ago I started to feel restless and to feel a little bored in life. I missed being creative and dreamy and I missed singing so much. I then started a beautiful personal and spiritual journey inwards and discovered the reason I felt so anxious, and so unworthy in the presence of other people.
I discovered the low level of self love I had and the dependency I felt to the love of others and their appreciation. I discovered that I really needed to learn to give myself the worth, I thought others had to give me.
This insight was so freeing, so liberating. My heart opened, and it helped me to see how worthy my existence was, just by being alive.
I know understood that the biggest gift I could give myself was to LOVE myself fully. To love myself the most, to just fall in love with myself, so that I would finally be able to relax somewhat more when I had to sing for example, my life just didn’t depend on it anymore.
‘Verslaafd aan de liefde’ is a song that means a lot to me, because it describes this journey from being addicted and feeling unworthy, to being indepent and feeling worthy as f*ck. Yay!
“Wow, I loved it very much. Your voice touches me every single time, whether you are talking, or singing. It is so inspiring to hear how your voice stretches out to touch people gently and softly. There is no other way for me to describe it! You have a gift!”
The song ‘Heaven’ is a very light and freeing song. At first it was a poem I had written.
The words came to me when I was walking outside in nature, watching trees, and birds flying high in the sky, and I just asked myself the question: What if heaven is here? Here on earth? And we just forgot to see?
What if we don’t have to work hard, and struggle, before we get to a place where we think we are being liberated and free? What if nothing is standing in the way of just living freely and happily?
What if the biggest secret of this earth, is that there is no heaven we have to GO to, but that heaven is here on earth, reflected to us by flying birds, a gentle kiss, a laughing human being, a playful child? What if heaven is here and it is reflected to us by nature, waiting for us to home?
What if … ?
In the summer of 2019 a dance collective from the Netherlands asked me to make 2 pieces of music for their dance performance.
They asked me to make 2 little pieces of a maximum of 2 minutes, which could fit in the bigger musical piece of their dance performance.
The title of the dance performance was ‘Freedom is a state of mind’. What is freedom? Was the big question we tried to answer during this performance.
For me freedom is living my dream, following my joy, and my intuition and soul’s whisperings.
Afloat is about being a free soul, following only what brings you joy. Breaking free from everything that is blocking you from living your most beautiful life.
Afloat is about a wild soul, breaking free.
“I just listened to you. I don’t know what it is but what you are creating is so beautiful. Your voice is so touching and so authentic. Just pure beauty “
