I'm looking for the IT...The IT that makes our hearts sing when we hear music (even if our vocals don't match)! The IT that transports us back to a time and place so real and familiar that it feels like yesterday. The place that transcends time and space and fills us with love and joy (and sometimes sorrow) from times gone by.
Nothing compares to music for doing just that.
I began this blog as a question to the universe. The title was the question I've been pondering all day. You've seen lyrics pop up in my writing often, and today was no exception. A dear friend commented about being surrounded by singing birds everywhere she goes and another shared that "universe" means "one song" and stated: "Alone we are one note, together we make a song."
And then in that instant, Prince's "When Doves Cry" came on the radio. I followed the trail from birds' songs to music to healing which led me to this blog.
Words, visuals, even smells don't transport us quite like music does. Music invokes feelings, and if you've followed me for any length of time, you know that feelings are our souls speaking to us. WAIT! Perhaps that's IT...Music reconnects us with our souls, and that's why it feels so perfect! We "come home" through music! Our souls realign with our thoughts and feelings, returning memories of loved ones and places we call "home." Remembering that our souls only want the very best for us- to experience peace, love and joy at every turn makes music the perfect vehicle.
I believe I've answered the very question I posed. If you have insights into the healing properties of music and song, please comment. I'm reaching out to those who can help others heal through music. Please share your wisdom! I believe there is an innate connection between nature's songs and vibrational healing and music therapy and balance for body, mind and soul...
