Well beautiful people, you made it. This has been a big year for so many, and for so many reasons.

On a personal level, I have never experienced so much self growth. This comes with a continued learning of the truths of the world, acknowledging that we have both good and evil in existence. I am grateful to now be aware of this evil, it has fed the fire in me to create peace on earth, to bring goodness to this world and to shine a light for love and compassion. It has also brought understanding as to why the world is so fucked up… why people are so fucked up, which has helped me on my compassion journey, understanding generational trauma and the propaganda and lies generations before us have been subject to (and that we are certainly very much subject to now every second of every day having the internet at our fingertips). 

It has been a massive year for my music. I released my debut album ‘Freedom Warrior’ and toured the songs throughout the summer around the UK at festivals, venues, sanctuaries, restaurants and other events. It has been a glorious time and I’m so grateful for all the opportunities and all the beautiful souls I’ve met along the way.

2022 has been the first year of my life I haven’t had a conventional ‘home,’ opting out of the corrupt system to a degree by living in my van ‘Freeda the Freedom Van.’ We are all slaves to a system that is rigged to make the poor poorer and the rich richer. We live under a deceitful, corrupt government, and I say NO. HELL no. We are slowly waking up and the tables will turn – we WILL see peace on earth.

I leave you with my Christmas song, a cover with a vegan twist of the beautiful classic ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.’ Why am I vegan? I dislike labels… ‘Vegan’ is another way of saying ‘lover of all animals’. Being vegan means you opt out of causing animals pain and discomfort. Which I know in my heart is something we all innately want. It’s only through conditioning, brainwashing, and propaganda that we turn away from this instinct of love and compassion. Society tells us eating ‘meat’ (dead animal flesh – funny they don’t call it what it is) is good for us. How can enslaving billions of innocent sentient beings possibly be good for us? How can that possibly be good for us on a karmic level? I have come to the realisation that whatever we put out in to the world comes back to us. If we continue to pay in to a business that thrives on oppression, exploitation and death, that is what we are bringing in to the world and for ourselves. 

Veganism isn’t some new age trendy fad. It is innately who we are, it is love and compassion, and it is the only way to win the war against the evil that is very much in existence today. Please help me combat this evil and say no to killing. Say no to slavery. Say no to hurting others when THERE IS NO EXCUSE to keep doing it. 

I send you so much love. Have a wonderful festive period and keep warm and cosy with your loved ones, non-human and human. And I look forward to sharing my music with you in 2023 – it’s going to be an epic year.
