Music as Messages

How many of you have woken up with a song stuck in your head? Or heard a song on the radio and the lyrics are particularly relevant to whatever situation you’re going through at that time? Or heard a song on the radio that reminds you of a deceased loved one?

Music is one of spirit’s favorite ways of relaying a message or giving us a sign. One, because music is easily linked to memory (“Oh, every time I hear this song, it reminds me of….”), and two, music raises our vibration. It makes us feel good. It makes us feel centered.

When I was little, I was very close to my paternal grandmother (Gram.) Gram, even in her 70s, had a huge crush on Rod Stewart. She even had “If You Think I’m Sexy” on vinyl. If you’re familiar with Rod Stewart’s song, “Forever Young,” you know it’s about a man expressing his unconditional love and support for his child as they grow and learn life lessons. Part of my morning ritual is turning on the radio just before I hop into the shower, and wouldn’t you know, “Forever Young” is the song that was playing this morning. That was a sign from Gram to let me know she was sending me a message and to pay attention. When the song ended, it lead straight into a song I was not familiar with, but the lyrics hold significance for me- Shania Twain’s “Life’s About to Get Good.” (The title really says it all, but it’s about finding joy and love after heartbreak.)

Damn, Gram, right in the feels.
