What role does music play in your life and do you have a preferred beat?
Music is something that connects us all and while music is characterized as “sounds that are sung by voices or played on musical instruments” per Merriam-Webster, to me it includes the elements of nature. From the sounds of waves crashing, rain falling, thunder & lightning, the rustling of leaves in the trees on a breezy night, to birds chirping, dogs barking, and wild animals roaring, creating a natural symphony in many ways.
Many of the events in our lives have songs tied to them that can transport you back in time in an instant. The styles may vary at different stages in your life, some songs or compositions stay with you for life, others are there for a fleeting moment.
There’s magic in silence too, and silence has sounds too, from the unspoken words in dialogues to a variety of background noise of cars driving by, an owl howling in the distance, or the wind blowing adding its texture, beats, moods, and vibes to everything it touches.
When you look back at your life what would the mix of your theme song sound like?
Music communicates many different tones, textures, vibes, all in one at the same time.
There’s a reason why it’s been around for eons, whether it’s the beat of a drum or drums, the sound of voices singing, storytelling, or even the sounds of nature and its habitat, it’s something that connects us all.
Any of you that have ever played an instrument and been part of a band or orchestra are familiar with the different textures and tones each instrument and person adds.
Can you imagine a life without music?
Music is energy. You are energy.
When you combine the two it connects your heart and soul with something larger than yourself.
Have you explored different styles of music or stuck to the same styles?
When you match the music with your current mood to what you desire to step into at that moment, it’s a powerful tool for healing, upliftment, introspection, and getting pumped up for new adventures.
Music makes you feel a variety of emotions and enhances the experience of storytelling in movies and plays vs. one without.
What’s your preferred beat & vibe?
Have you ever looked at your favorite playlist to see what it evokes in you, in other words why you’re drawn to a particular song or composition?
Think about it, whether you want to be uplifted, need to chill and get in zen mode, clear frustration or anger, there’s a song for it.
Different styles lift us up and when you’re not happy, that favorite song may not appeal to you.
Sometimes silence is the space needed to create and shift your mindset.
The beat of your drum
You’re a multifaceted being and creating playlists that speak to all parts of you can be the difference between having a great day or not.
How we interpret the different vibes will vary, we’re all on our unique paths with different levels of awareness after all.
Your unique playlist is as unique as you are and sometimes when you find people that dig your playlist, magic happens.
Are you walking to the beat of your drum or someone else’s? What’s your preferred vibe and frequency – energy – music – magic?
