A forum for Healers and Seekers
Hey all, Could you just share some of your experiences and associations with music? What kind of songs/music has a soothing effect on you and/or the people you know? Anything that triggers you off emotionally in a good positive way? It can be motivational, peaceful, happy song or just a simple melodious song.
Please do discuss what appeals to you the most in the songs you like, whether it's the lyrics or the music:)
Honestly Vani, you have taken one of my favorite topic, If I start writing about the songs I have heard, their impact on me, I can write a whole book with each song being one chapter and the pages of the book wouldn't get over at all, hahaha
I always write and say too that " Songs and Music is my first and never ending love of life, my love which never changed"
I tell my children, if someday I fall sick or am about to die also, in any hospital, just play my playlist and I shall be fine :) or may be die peacefully :)
No category in specific still more of Hindi Movie songs and devotional music Sanskrit or Hindi appeal the most to me, I connect with God when I hear them, I connect with Love when i hear them, I connect with my inner most being, when I hear music. Anyday if it has passed off really bad, i can just put my ear phone on and listen to my playlist all night. I used to study with songs on, I have watched many concerts of Singers and Musicians thinking that someday i can see my children becoming Singers and see them on stage, though they didn't make that choice and I am in allowance. I chose my husband only for the fact that he sings well, hahaha, he was not very good looking, not earning well at all, and not of the type of guys I would have loved too, still I married him, coz he sang well, and he still does, and I tell him, this one thing can make me love you till I live, when you sing, i forget the other things :) even today.
There was a time when I would sing all day long, loud and carefree, then I started singing lullaby's to my children, nowadays, I sing devotional songs every evening, while I light the lamp in my pooja, and I record my own songs too. Attended one Healing program called Dance on trance, I loved that workshop like madness and it healed me better than all therapies I had learned till then.
So you see, I can just go on and on and on.... Saying I am crazy about music would be a small way to express, I live Music, I sleep with music, I heal with music, Music saves my Soul from leaving me away in anger/frustration/sadness and it energizes me like none can do :)
Sharing a poem of mine here, which I wrote long back
A song on my mind, a memory unfolds,
a dream I had seen, close to my heart, I hold
Slowly I move towards it, step by step, day by day,
I know, I'll get to see it, happening, exactly my way,
"If you can See it, you can be it" - they say
I trust and believe and I have seen that....
All our dreams do come true someday :)
( today I changed one line, earlier it was - I am waiting, for I believe that all our dreams do come true someday)
So beautiful Bandana. Coming from a musical family myself, I know that music definitely has that power, so true. Which is why I thought it would be an interesting topic to discuss here. Thank u so much. Dreams do come true, someday :)
