Music Speaks to Me

Since my spiritual transformation that began last month, music has changed. I used to listen to it without paying much attention to the words. They went in one ear and out the other. The notes were pretty much all that I focused on. Now the words carry new meaning, and they feel more personal, and many times I hear things in the songs that apply to my relationships, my actions, my experiences. Now, music gives me more chills than ever. It touches me in a new place, a place that I only recently discovered. Some could perhaps say that I have become simply over emotional, and that could very well be, but I much prefer to listen to music with my newfound sense. A song now brings tears to my eyes, chills through to the bone, feelings of elation and love. It's magical how things are so different for me. For more than 28 years I was asleep! I do not know that I am awake yet, and I don't want to say that I am because that would mean I'd have spiritual pride, and I don't want to be proud. I just want to be glad and happy.

It's funny, but I just realized something. As I was typing this, I was listening to Yes on my iPod. The song "Miracle of Life" started playing.

It's true. Life is a miracle.

I have never underestimated the power of music. It transcends my Soul.

Hi Birthday Girl! :) The right kind of music can be used as a tool to help us ascend.

I tend to have a different opinion. Don't worry, it's not serious. It's the high notes that matter. And the singing of course. Who cares about poetry?
Have you listened to instrumental music lately?

I've listened to instrumental music very recently, in fact. I sometimes use non-predictive music in my meditation sessions. Also, I'm very fond of classical music, especially Beethoven. I have a Yo-Yo Ma CD here to listen to that I borrowed from the library, too. I have a nice-sized library of classical. And, I find great enjoyment in musical soundtracks.
