144 for me, is a number of massive awakening. It has always been the doorway into receiving newer codes about myself and my path forward. From this point comes revelation and comes creation. I have two songs titled 144. The first one was created not long after beginning Vanessa Worm, I recorded the parts of the song while listening to a song I found my google searching "famous harpsicord player" I chose to search this, as a psychic/healer [who inspired much of Vanessa Worm], mentioned that in a previous life I was a famous harpsicord player, and to google it. I googled it, chose a song and recorded guitar parts along to the song playing in my ear. These are the recordings which you hear on 144 [the youtube version].
For me, this song is about spirit asking the question of what is it like to be human, what is it like to come here through time and space? It was apart of me processing all the new information I had received, about incarnating on Earth, to help raise the conciousness of the planet, about the origins of my soul. At the time I knew this is what the song was calling through, but did not understand it to the level which I can grasp now.
The other song titled 144, which is the opening track to my album, Vanessa 77. Was the first song created for the album. I was really struggling with breaking through and beginning this album. Then one night out of the blue I took a couple of mushrooms with a couple of friends.. I ended up home alone that night, a blessing which I had been dying for, my senses only slightly heightened I pulled out the guitar for the first time in a long time, I played around for a bit and then hit record. I played and sung 144 in one take with no idea of what would come out. Hence the lyrics "I don't know where I am going, but it is taking me somewhere" - in this evening of creating music I felt my angelic & wise-woman self of many years of life coming through.
This was really quite a profound experience. Truly felt the aspect of me which is goddess, angel, but human, a being of such light, who was me, coming in through me and being there with me during the process of receiving revelation about the album.. about how I don't know where the f** its taking me, but that it was okay, there is no need to fight against it, to force nature, all is required is a letting go of expectation and allowing joy to lead the way.
