Om Gaia Bids You Farewell
It is with great waves of emotion, that after six years of sharing my heart and soul with you through this website, I have decided that December 31 of this year will signal the completion of this part of our journey together.
I launched this site in 2009 to announce and celebrate the release of my CD Om Gaia. Over the years it became much more than that. Many of you participated in concerts, workshops, meditation groups, online, and with me personally over the years. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity to connect with each and every one of you.
Particularly heartwarming is how many people Om Gaia has touched. Last I checked, there were people from over 50 countries regularly visiting my site. Along with the U.S., countries include the Ukraine (#1 in September!), The Russian Federation, China, Brazil, India, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Colombia, Sweden, Denmark, Australia and even the Republic of Serbia! One of my favorite reviews called Om Gaia, “A celebration of Mother Earth and all who inhabit it.” Clearly, that is the case.
As an emissary of the Earth, a large piece of my passion with this project was to remind the world of the gifts that Gaia has bestowed upon us, the children of the Earth, through her vast and loving feminine essence. Endowed with that same essence, we are her stewards, charged with spreading her love and the importance of our planet to each other and the Universe. On that count, I feel we have made great strides.
The songs of Om Gaia are simply part of my being now. With the simple act of allowing my voice to come out of hiding, I have healed myself on many levels. If I have encouraged even a single one of you to find the courage to express your own voice, then I have accomplished much.
Also, just so you know, the music of Om Gaia will still be available for download on CD Baby. www.cdbaby.com/terrililesmason
Out of the 3000 CDs I cut, I only have one box of 100 left. If you want one, they can be ordered directly from my site until December 31.
And for those of you who keep asking, “Will you make another CD?” The answer is I have no idea. I love to sing and write songs. Making it a business is another thing entirely. I can tell you that I am continuously inspired, I sing every day at home, and for now that is enough. After devoting seven very full and exciting years to Om Gaia, perhaps I will relax a bit and see where that beautiful flow takes me next.
And so, here we are.
To show my deep affection and gratitude for my Om Gaia tribe, I am offering my 21 Days of Ease and Joy online program AT NO CHARGE to everyone who signs up by November 23. I won’t be able to personally coach everyone, but for 21 days you will get a daily email from me guiding you to new levels of vibration and awareness. The program will start December 1, and end 21 days later on the Winter Solstice, my favorite day of the year. What is more perfect than an end urging the soul forward to new beginnings?
Just offering this feels so deliciously expansive to me, I hope YOU ALL sign up. To do so, just email email@example.com with the header Yes, I want 21 days of EASE and JOY! It’s that easy!
If you are not currently on my email list, be sure to join so that you can receive with ease any announcements or messages I may be inspired to bring forward in 2015.
So, my Beautiful Beings, as the song says, “As one journey ends, another begins, and it’s a journey of joy, surrounded by friends.”
I wish you all the abundant blessings of Gaia.
Om Gaia, Om Shanti, Peace
Terri, of the Glorious Planet Earth
Om Gaia Mentorship programs
With 12 years and over 2000 hours of training in esoteric studies, I have been guided to offer mentorship programs over the past year to personally guide those who are ready to take a quantum leap in consciousness.
The Om Gaia Mentorship programs are a great success. Those who participate astonish me with how quickly they grasp the material and apply it to their lives. Very rewarding!
So I am expanding my programs to include this new one.
The Components of Love
Love is the fabric of the Universe. If that is the case, then why do we so rarely feel it? Join me as we explore what love really is and learn how to clearly see how we hide the vast love that is always available to us from ourselves. This is probably the single most LOVING gift you could give yourself. And it couldn't be easier.
AND I will continue to offer my other programs below. These can be taken in any order. Simply read through them and see what calls to you. And be ready for a shift in perspective that will help you see your life in a new easier and more joyful light.
Receive With Ease: Empowering the Feminine Spirit with Passion, Prosperity and Peace
Embracing these gifts and integrating them into your daily life can have a huge effect of the ease with which your life unfolds. This is an investment in yourself that returns to you ten-fold in its soothing qualities!
Detox Your Mind, Detox Your Life
We are aware of the benefits of detoxing the body, but less so when it comes to detoxing our thoughts. Toxic thoughts are debilitating and affect every area of our lives. I have specific practices to target these thoughts and shift them to draw new and exciting things into your life.
To find out more about the program, just email me
firstname.lastname@example.org or simply click on the events page.
Om Gaia Live in Concert at OMEGA!
On June 23, I was honored to appear at Omega with Om Gaia Live in Concert. If you don't know Omega, it is the largest Adult Holistic Learning Center in the U.S.
It is dear to my heart as it was at Omega six years ago that I emerged from their ecstatic chant weekend spontaneously singing and writing song after song, which lead to my first CD, Om Gaia being released in 2009. So to be invited to share that music with the Omega community is a fulfillment of a dream for me.
21 DAYS TO EASE AND JOY
It's 2013! And the energies are ripe my friends for vibrating ease & joy! With overwhelmingly positive feedback from my last on-line program 21 Days to Ease & Joy, I would say it was a great success. In about 3 minutes per day, you can start manifesting more ease & joy in your life TODAY with this daily email support program that includes personal coaching from me! Just sign up on the store page. http://www.omgaiamusic.com/online_store.php
Consider this a gift to yourself as well as to a world who could use a little more joy these days.
Fire the Grid!
This fall, humanity is experiencing a Cosmic Event known as the 11:11:11 . From the Fall Equinox on September 23, until November 11, a great wave of cosmic love will embrace our planet, ushering in the final stage of wholeness of our journey as the Earth & her children begin to feel our connection to the ONE pulsating Universe we have long felt separated from.
My friends, the Age of Aquarius has arrived and so have we.
On 11:11:11, I will be leading a Fire the Grid meditation in CT connecting us with millions of people around the world to celebrate this long awaited event. On that day, the energetic grid of connection we have been building will be complete and we will be firing the grid with our grandest intentions for the future of the Earth.
It was a beautiful spring evening recently as I found myself performing at the incredible Kripalu Yoga Center.
The sacred space of the Main Hall was glorious, the audience full of like-minded souls and the staff superb. As a new artist, this is the ultimate honor, and a dream fulfilled.
"A celebration of Mother Earth and all who inhabit it". Reviewer Kathy Parsons comment manifests again & again.
The continued unfolding of the unknown potential that Om Gaia vibrates continues to amaze me,and I am blessed.
The Healing Journey of OM Gaia
Recently, I got an email describing the healing journey Om Gaia has taken Debbie Connery of Washington State on. When I receive such heartelt messages from my listeners, I am reminded of why I have devoted the last three years of my life spreading the music & message of Om Gaia.
I have never thought of myself as a healer, purposely shying away from that title. But I have come to believe that healing is just a matter of "releasing the pain from the very start" in the words of Om Gaia. And as we allow ourselves to do that, we finally feel the love that is always there just waiting for us to remember it. And in that moment we are healed.
So in that way, we are all healers with the ability to heal ourselves.
So thank you Debbie and the many others who have sent me such beautiful messages to remind me that sometimes we just need a little support to shift our whole perspective of life. We never know just when or in what form that reminder will come, but come it will.
And if Om Gaia does that for even one person, its reason for being is fulfilled.
So I wish you Om Gaia, Om Shanti, & PEACE to you & yours in 2011, another pivotal year on our beloved planet Earth. As the Winter Mother heals the Earth, may she bring you love & healing as well.
Love to each of you,

Om Gaia presented to the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers in NYC
On December 13, I was invited to present Om Gaia to the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers at Jivamukti Yoga in NYC. These women are from 13 tribes around the world who had a shared vision to travel the world together & share the Earth wisdom of their tribes. They have been everywhere from Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Bali and with the Dalai Llama this past year and have many more stops to make.
As everyone gathered, Om Gaia was playing throughout the building. My heart was just bursting with joy to share my music with so many people! After they spoke I was able to present Om Gaia to each of them , hold their hand & thank them for their gift with mine. Truly a magical evening as I was able to feel my native American lineage so strongly in their presence.
Om Gaia skyrockets to #4 on the World Radio Top 100 Chart!

It is my dream to have the world chanting Om Gaia, so a big thank you to the radio hosts who are supporting my dream. I am simply honored.
This review surprised me on the internet from NewAgeMusicWorld.com 's John Olson, out of Toronto,who posted this on his blog:
" Om Gaia celebrates Mother Earth by inspiring, thought filled lyrics, announced to all by the beautifully deep and rich blending of Terri's soft & sensual vocals, instilling thoughts of an ancient realm that transforms onto the present. This female New Age artist has accomplished much in bringing positive vibes into this vibrant musical journey she has just offered the world. I expect we will hear more from Terri."
Thanks, John. I certainly hope you will hear more from me! NewAgeMusicWorld.com is a terrific site for both new age musicians and artists. Check it out!
This review from Kathy Parsons. Kathy is rated as one of the top musical reviewers in the world.
"Om Gaia's ten tracks are all vocals with rhythmic, trance-like instrumental accompaniment that has a mildly exotic flavor. Mason's voice is hypnotic and earthy as she honors the magic of the sacred feminine.
"Elixir of Love" (track seven) celebrates the divine union of Gaia and her long-separated masculine self. A slow and sensual love song, this is one of my favorites. I also really like "Begin Again," which lovingly urges us to move forward into our unknown potential, remembering what brings us joy. Gentle and playful, it's a warm invitation. "Beautiful Beings" concludes the journey with joy, hope, and encouragement set to a catchy melody.
Overall, "Om Gaia" is a very upbeat and spiritual musical experience that celebrates Mother Earth and all who inhabit it.

Om Gaia Debuts at Earth Day
Om Gaia began her sojourn around the world on April 25 at Earth Day NY where I was invited to debut Om Gaia.
It was a beautiful day in the city as my dear friends and back up singers Sue Cadwell, Andrea Wappler and myself stood before the Earth Day stage. I think we were all a little awe-struck with what we were about to do.
The incredible Manhattan Samba Drum Corp opened the space for us with their trance-inducing drumming, and the next thing we knew the Om Gaia invocation was echoing through the canyons of New York City. As the sacred words Om Gaia rang out, all my anxiety disappeared as we took the stage. I soon felt myself ground into Mother Earth, found my voice and with hearts full of joy & amazement, we delivered the gift of Om Gaia to New York.
As the lyrics to Om Gaia say, "it's easy, so easy, nothing to fear!" That was so true as all three of us breezed through the performance and had a blast doing it!
What is an Om Gaia world?
It's one where Gaia, the great Mother Goddess of Earth is honored & celebrated for her vast creative abilities & gifts of service to this world. As 2012 approaches, Gaia is moving to expand to a new point of evolution. And, needless to say, as Gaia goes, so goes the world!
In an Om Gaia world, everyone is encouraged to be & express who they truly are, no holds barred. So take a deep breath and hang on because, here we go!
As recording my first cd has been the catalyst for launching this site, I will start by focusing on that miraculous, and definitive OM GAIA event. Click on my bio page to get the story about how Om Gaia came into being from someone who started singing just a few years ago.
Start the Om Gaia journey by going to the music page, listening to the sample tracks and reading the lyrics, which are transformational in & of themselves. After that, please take your time perusing what other little treasures you might find hidden away here. Like the perfect 5- minute meditation, guaranteed to get even the novice meditator breathing in the Zen zone!
Then, come to Goddess School by checking out my Goddess Messages, where I will be sharing my very personal Goddess journals from the past 8 years for the first time, as well as some fascinating info about Gaia,the supreme Goddess of this Galaxy, also known as Mother Earth.
In OM Terri, find Universal Teachings that I have learned from many different sources over the years that I have found to be life-changing, and info about my coaching services. Right now life changing is what everything is all about as the world moves through a state of unprecedented transformation.
Thankfully, Gaia is here to offer guidance on how to leave our cocoons and change into the beautiful beings that we are with as much ease and grace as we can muster! I am delighted we are journeying together through this momentous time on Earth. Check back often as I will be continuously adding new info to ease our passage.
So until then, let our mantra be "as one journey ends, another begins, and it's a journey of creation, surrounded by friends."
Om Gaia, Om Shanti, Rhade!
These are excellent sanskrit mantras to use to set your intentions.
In essence,they mean: Hail Gaia, beloved Mother of Earth, Peace, and greetings, beloved ones of the Supreme Goddess! By the way, Sanskrit is one cool language. Speaking even a few words of it can lift your spirits and start shifting your vibration! So Om away, dear friends, until next we meet.
Wishing you ease, connection & reception,
I AM Terri, of the glorious planet Earth
