Have you ever considered how music affects your soul? Like many people, I have a favorite Pandora station. I love listening to the beautiful songs of yesterday as I stand in the shower feeling the warm water run on my head, washing all my cares away.
Recently, I recognized that when an instrumental is playing my heart and soul catch the ebb and flow of the song and begin to dance with every note. I get lost in the memories the melody holds secret and in wait for me. I feel as if I can wonder here forever.
My heart skips a beat or sometimes two, when suddenly a song starts to play and the first words comes in to the air, the words are weighted and seem to pull me to them. Sometimes I sing a long, my words floating along with the words in the song.
I know that the depth the beauty is gone. I have learned that if I am struggling to get to my center, the soft gentle sway of just the perfect instrumental will lead me right where I want to be.
Now don’t get me wrong, songs with lyric can also take me to a special place, a place I love to be. I’m just suggesting that I recently, I have found that for me music is powerful, it is for pleasure, it is also to help find my quiet center.
