Spreading Miracles at Miracles Café
Selah's Thursday night (8-10pm) performance is a hidden treasure of
the San Diego area. This magnificent young woman inspires all who happen
upon her singing in the Moonlight on the outdoor patio of Miracles Café
in Cardiff by the Sea. After hearing her songs a few times, I have of
course developed some favorites but perhaps the first song that I began
singing along to was “Who We Is”, a soulful piece about
being true to yourself. Others include “Bless The Water”
about Tibetan Monk’s who came to bless Barton Springs (in Austin
where she last lived) as developers threaten the delicate watershed
eco-system. According to Aliah, the companion song “Luna: Tree
Of Life” was given to her by Spirit in a dream - where a Native
American Medicine Man asked her to thank Julia Butterfly Hill who lived
in a Redwood tree she named “Luna” for 2 years to help save
the 1000 year old forest. “Communication Blues” and “Dandelion
Wish” are another pair of companion songs that ironically enough
are about developing interdependent love. Another powerful song, “Bring
It On”, is a great tune that Aliah was inspired to write because
of the recent need again for peace activism that's been going strong
since the 60’s, if not way before. She introduces it with: "The
peace movement is older and wiser now and ready to take on those who
are foolish to think that anyone can win a war – I say we’re
ready, so. “Bring It On!”" She ends the song with a
chant for peace. She is full of vibrant healing energy. Her positive,
funky, rock songs are really catchy and ring true as much as her poetic
mystical ballads - layered with meaning that help us to feel calmer
about our changing world. Her music celebrates the now in all its glory…
while her message of peace and healing lingers.
