There is music in the air! Can you hear it? Christmas time has its own songs that bring on a sweet feeling of the season. Whether it's carolers in the street, children's concerts, seasonal shows or the selections of our many party hosts we are exposed to more music this time of year than any other. Even radio stations count down the hits and drag out the "basement tapes" for added nostalgia. This background of beautiful melody adds to the enchantment and joy of the holidays. Quite simply ... It wouldn't be Christmas without music! For me it wouldn't be life without music!
Music is an essential part of my life. I use it to change my moods, tell people my feelings and Spirit often speaks to me through song. I often wake up with a tune in my head put there by "Spirit Radio" . Yes God is my DJ, inspiring me and teaching me through lyric and melody. I especially love Him for that. It is a beautiful way to learn. He always puts the tune in my head that brings harmony and clarity to particular moments .
When you think of the "One" a divine Source that created every note, every string, every octave of every song since the universe began it’s almost too much to comprehend how beautiful and infinite that energy must be. It almost brings tears to my eyes.
There are so many beautiful scores. It would be impossible to truly hear music and not channel Spirit. Whether it’s a brilliant pounding heavy metal outlet, a soft meditation flute, an emotional Aria, stirring love song, patriotic tribute or catchy pop tune we feel it in our heart and soul. It brings us together, creates a vibe, calms us, excites us, and makes us feel raw, truthful, distracted, comfortable, powerful, weak.....but always ALIVE! There is no doubt music moves "us". That stirring is God. That space where music touches us is the place where God put his finger of love and creativity when he created us.
Sometimes I can hear Angels singing in my mind. But it's not loud. I think when we cross over it gets louder. It's too beautiful to be heard on the earth plane. Can you imagine how beautiful that must be? I often think, we have such beautiful music here on earth what must it be like in Heaven in the Spirit realm.... Wow! Something to look forward to I guess.
Maybe there is a Spirit band. With Barbara Streisand and Elvis and Kurt Cobain and John Lennon and Michael Jackson and Frank Sinatra and George Harrison and Jim Croce and Bing Crosby and Judy Garland and Jim Morrison and Louise Armstrong and Stevie Ray Vaughn and Mozart and Chopin. Perfectly inspired harmony. Too much to ponder but something I can't wait to hear!
For now I try to be content with the eclectic list on my IPod. But I never am and so the downloads grow daily. My added selections are a random mixture of whatever calls to me and stirs my blood. There is always a longing in my soul for more beats, more enchantments. The power of sound calls to take me away to wherever my mood wants to go and I cannot deny such beauty there for the taking. Especially when I tunes, you tube, I heart radio and Pandora are on every corner selling the vibrations that keep me alive..
Yes I admit it I am a music addict! I suck the life out of every song with repeated plays and use it to feed my lyrical addiction. It is my sweet drug of choice. Its heavy metal entertains my dark side while its bubbly pop soothes my light side. Each starkly different Genre takes me on a different type of high. The lilting gong of mediation chants deepen my yoga practice, the soulful slow jams of Usher and Luther awaken my earthy vibe, Motown makes me sway and “poppy” tunes from Beyonce’ and Taylor Swift and Nikki Minag get me up dancing. The powerful clear voice of Josh Groban often bring tears reminding me of childhood churches and Mom, while Eminem helps me blow off steam and Scorpion’s operatic writhing rock makes me believe “there’s no one like you” and John Legend’s piano and crisp lyrics bring me to the simplicity of loving. The journey, the list, the possibility of new harmony is endless and a siren to my passionate seeking heart!
I seek companions that share my addiction as we stay up late in the night in some divvy bars sharing the sounds of the unbelievably Spirit inspired talent. I love to learn from others who share my craving and understand my need. Those who know obscurities I've missed along the artistic road are my favorite musical teachers. They introduce me to hidden treasures I never knew, luring me to new heights. From morning to night I crave melody, meandering through my days with slow jams, angelic hymns, writhing drums, screaming guitars or inspiring waves of song. It is absolutely blood stirringly beautiful! An addiction Spirit wants us all to have.
I can't imagine life without music. I can't go long without filling my veins with a live performance either. It’s like denying my breath. I can feel the longing building in my roots, rising up slowly until it reaches my core and I have to bust out and find a band. I hunger for that chill, the suspended moment when a voice hits "the note" or an instrument makes a sound it was divinely made to play! I lust for those beautifully woven seconds when the band grooves perfectly and that suspension of time is only broken by sheer pure "magic". I can feel it through my body then. I am vibrating like one of the instruments being played riding the crescendo… completely one with the rhythm, my body is in harmony with the band, woven into the song as its notes take me rising inside the music higher and higher until it seeps into every cell and I explode in musical orgasm. I’m satisfied then, I got what I came for, pure joy, union, divine beauty, and magic! I am happy. My mind screams do it again…. I am a music addict!
Music. It’s all magic to me. It changes everything, it can make anything better. Life better. It makes the unendurable bearable. When my father was dying as he lay there restless and fighting I played Chanticleer! His body would relax and I knew he was being transported to beauty and calm. It soothed him, it soothed me, I felt less helpless. Magic. We fall in love, break up and get our asses in gear to music. For some it is a wonderful background to their life. I’m too passionate to let it play in the background; I have to hear it fill my life and my vessel. I sing loud and admittedly badly but it’s still praise for the creation of the magic.
Today I urge you to praise the magic that is music. Shut off the TV, break the silence, fill your space with music, sing, dance, and hum, move..Feel the Spirit. Play music while you work, and your toil is lighter, play music for the sick and they feel eased, play music for the sad, they grow happy. Kids are less bored with music in their life, elderly more energetic. God is a great DJ, his play list is endless. Put music into your life, turn on the magic and watch what happens!
