Hello all, I’m Glenda, the one half of Mirror Speaks The Truth. Below is a little background about who I am, and some things I believe in.

Let me start by saying, I am a woman who traveled around the world with my music.

I was one of the lucky few who lived my life as a musician, making a living with my craft. Those were precious years in the 80’s and 90’s when musicians with talent and skill could make a living if they so chose to.  It felt like we were a small select society. We were a special breed. Yes, like dogs. It took a skill set to do so, and there was pride in knowing how to sing or play your instrument. We were unique in the sense you had to have a talent and skills  to actually play, get booked, and get paid.

Now becoming famous, that was a secret society and labyrinth unto itself.

Most likely you were in LA, New York, Nashville, or some other big city venues so you might get noticed, hopefully so a manager or A&R/record label human might see you. Now, to some degree, it is much easier to get noticed, and capture an audience. You can do it all on your own with no deal, and the insider trading info is easier to get (and of course you don’t need it really). Although, even with the playing field now being as expansive and open as it is, it is still one shot in a million when it comes to being super mega famous. The good news is that one can make an amazing career, regardless of fame (or in spite of it?), but you’ll likely need to diversify, be authentic and clever all on your own. NICE… anyway…

Back to my life thing. I spend a lot of time digging for answers and actively doing things to improve my inner being, thoughts, behaviors and outlook.

During earlier parts of my life, I studied and practiced everything from Reiki to Wicca to Naturopathy, to doing courses like Landmark Education and LifeSpring. I wanted to understand what made me tick and act like I do. I wanted to be successful, free and happy! It was a path that led me down many roads of joy and sorrow. I knew one thing, that I was always growing, evolving through every experience and every amazing person I met. I was grateful at the end of the day even if I was crying. As I say above, I still spend a lot of time refining the best me that I can.

I am always an optimist with an eye to the darkness. Balance is key.

I feel we are living in a world that is full of vibrations and they all have a manifestation associated with that vibration. Sometimes it takes awhile to see one’s visions become a reality. In my experience it is all relevant. Just because I cannot use my senses to experience something, I feel it doesn’t make it true or not true. I know I just need to keep an open mind. The one constant is me, what I experience, what I interpret, and what I feel. While I have people and things around me to dance with, at the end of the day it is my journey. How I want to make it up and if I want to change it, is up to me. No one can make me feel or believe anything without my permission. The question is, what do I want to create and how I want to touch others?

My philosophy is simple. Be accountable and responsible for everything that comes from me out to the world.

To live life to the fullest with full self-expression, to use my passion and love to share with myself and others in a joyous or some deep fulling expression. To raise all vibrations to a higher place than when I walked thought the door. ;-}
