Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind… in the air… in the light. It’s all around us. All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do… is listen. ~ August Rush Music soothes the soul, it helps the mind travel, it heals the heart and it empowers the body. Music is a tool that I use daily in my life. I escape to the worlds between the notes, I breathe in the rhythm and the beat, and I soar within the flow of the song. Music carries me to the places my soul longs to visit. It is sometimes the only vehicle I can rely on to take me to these places of peace, beauty, magic and inspiration. It is often a connection between mine and other souls. It reminds me of times and energies that I cherish dearly. I open myself up to it and I listen.
I do hear the music everywhere. Sometimes it is a subtle whisper behind the activities of my day, reminding me and grounding me. Sometimes I pull it right up front and lean into it as it supports me as I face the moments where I am needed to be present, full, wide awake and on. I open myself up to it and I listen.
Each morning I wake to the song of the birds; their voices rising to greet the day. As my daily rituals take shape and form I carry the songs of my ancestors in my heart, humming melodies that are not forgotten. Moving on to my tasks and interacting with the world I hear the music that the dance of the day responds to. I open myself up to it and I listen.
Music, I hear it when I look into my husband’s eyes, when I hear my children’s laughter, when I smell the flowers blooming, when I walk in the wet grass, when I heal the wounded, when I hold your heart tenderly in mine and when I lay back to rest my body into dreams. I open myself up to it and I listen.
