A friend of mine and I were talking and we believe we are receiving messages through music. Does anyone have any thoughts about that or any experiences related to that?

Most definitely. I'll try to keep it short...try....

I've always been deeply involved with music and it's the less predictable, more sensuous music that counts the most. But there's a big connection between dance (predominantly rhythmical, harmonically simple music) and Spirits. In fact, I often make an offering of my dance energies for them to use in their work when I know I'm going really to "let go".

But in quieter moments I spend time with that branch of "classical" music called impressionist or symbolist: Debussy, Delius; sometimes Romantic (capital R) - Berlioz, Bruckner; and one or two other genres. I'm usually drawn totally into the music (so the rest of the world is shut out - rock solid gone?!!) and I'm aware of spirits; sometimes I get flashes of insights almost telepathically - there's some kind of disturbance at a spiritual level (difficult to explain - it's sensed rather than felt bodily most times) but they translate into something meaningful eventually most times. Sometimes the message is clear and understanding is immediate. And there can be a body reaction.

Sometimes the connection is deeper and I know I'm sending back, again it's "speaking" through feelings rather than words but I have sometimes formed words inwardly. It doesn't happen every time and it's something I can control. If I want just to be drawn into a mind journey to somewhere, I don't exactly shut them out but they seem to understand.

So yes, we're on the same wavelength here!

Wow! That's really in depth! My friend and I were sort of talking it over and we somehow got on the subject of being communicated to through music which we both believe we are. I've never thought about it in the way you were describing though.

Since I was a child, whenever I listen to music that is extremely beautiful o me or touching, I can almost feel my spirit and the guardians and spirits around me stir with the music. Some,times I even get this blissful tingling sensation.

Sometimes I can close my eyes and see different worlds and stories that play like movies to my imagination. They were so deep - it was entering a trance state and the beings in these worlds may be going through something related to in the song or just living their lives in amazing places unlike ours.

I realized this was some form of creative power, and that spirits were showing me how to feel intensity and beauty and emotion when listening to music. To understand the spirit of rhythm and melodies and such.

I also relate to Lorelyen on the matter of dance and such and I too sometimes feel like spirits may be with me and moving with me when I dance.

I should dance more often and see if I feel anything. I agree with you though on the sensation when listening to music. It just makes me all giddy!

I receive all sorts of gifts, healings, and energies through music. I thought everyone did...??

I agree with everything said so far.

Its not a new idea though. In shamanic practices, they often 'ride the drums', the rhythm taking them into a trance, where they can then communicate with spirits.

Back in the 1990s 'rave culture', lots of ravers found spiritual connections. I was one. You could go to a rave all by yourself, and immediately be absorbed into a peaceful collective, and soon you were not really in the club or field, or anywhere else for that matter, you'd just be absorbing and sharing energy and feeling:smile: The older generation of the day just thought we were all daft youths on illegal drugs, but while its true that some people did take drugs, the majority didn't. We weren't the first either. The punks and the hippies and probably every 'movement' before experienced the same thing.

Oh and yes, it works when your alone too. You can still be in the 'collective' in spirit, even if you were a million miles away from the nearest other human.

Badger,

I love how you brought the fact of shamanic practices to the conversation. I had completely forgotten the obvious, yea?

Raves artistically are beautiful to me. I have no clue as to why considering to be in one scares me to death. Don't get me wrong I don't think it's a negative atmosphere. Maybe being emphatic sends waves of emotions to me that I cant thoroughly digest spiritually? Either way it makes me giddy inside hearing you say raves can be used to connect.

Agreed on the older generations. It never fails and will never fail that as we progress the music will always be perceived as "bad" to each older generation. Even in the 50's it was "devils music" to their grandparents and parents. I find it laughable but, hey, to each their own I suppose.

"Oh and yes, it works when your alone too. You can still be in the 'collective' in spirit, even if you were a million miles away from the nearest other human."

I'm not sure if I understand that correctly. Can you elaborate?

Blessings

I just mean that you don't need to be surrounded by people to get yourself into a good mental place through music. I use music to help me get a successful transcendental meditation going, and once in such, you're connected to everything really. I never (intentionally) got a transcendental meditation going on in a rave, for the purely practical reason that I didn't want to leave my barely conscious physical body lying around unsupervised in the middle of a crowd of ecstatic ravers, just in case it got accidentally broken:D Instead when you're in a rave, you stay in your body, but at the same time feel everything not just from those physically present but, I suspect, a lot more. The energy that flows is quite intense, like your whole body is just coursing with electricity. The connection is unmistakable. You can feel everyone else's mood and intentions. Perhaps this is another reason why the rave scene got a bad press. There was the mistaken belief by some that there was a lot of promiscuity at such gatherings, because it was not unusual for people to just start snogging (passionate kissing for the non-Brits among us:smile: ) each other without so much as an introduction first, so I guess it looked quite hedonistic in a way. But the thing is everyone just knew everyone else's mood and feelings, so if you just knew the girl nearby was thinking of 'contacting' with you, and you knew she knew that you were thinking the same, then either party could just walk up to the other and have a snog. 9 times out of 10 it would become immediately apparent that although there was a bond of universal friendship there, it was nothing more, so you'd just wander off also without a word, and neither party would feel any shame or embarrassment or awkwardness. The whole thing was brilliant. Very powerfully spiritual.

Yes music definitely sends messages. Different tones, rhythms and lyrics correspond to different movements in frequencies. If you properly channel yourself to the song (100% focus on the music), your body will vibrate to same frequency of the song. Therefore you will feel emotional sensations specific to that song. That is why sad song makes you feel sad and a happy song makes you feel happy.

You can do this with the lyrics of a song also. If you channel into what the message is that the artist is trying to portray, you will become part of that message frequency. When I do this, I'll listen to a song with deep emotions and story and I will become part of that story (experiencing the story and feeling the emotions correlated with it). I will literally lose all sense of my surrounding and become amerced in the story. Usually I'll get full body chills or vibrations when something strikes deeply to me and I consider these truths that have been sent to me either from A higher being or the artists

I have always loved dancing by far my favorite thing to do. I always wanted to be a dancer growing up but my mother couldn't afford putting me in dancing classes. So I just did it for fun, still do. I have to agree it takes you to another place, I usually use it to manifest because I feel like it brings your vibrations up. It's such an amazing feeling. Everyone asks me how I move so smoothly and so easy to the beats. It has always come naturally. I taught myself how to dance at the age of three. It's big in my culture...Sometimes I do feel like I'm channelling someone. I don't see anyone, I just feel so much joy from it and like I'm being guided to move the way I do. I didn't know shamans used it.. In my mothers country they play a certain type of music with drums and all different instruments and people usually dance around and spirits sometimes come through and basically give you a reading. I think it has to do with saints. I'm not sure if it's called Santeria. But they usually called on saints.

I can't say I've ever received thoughts about my own life from music, but I have received a lot of creative ideas from it.

It's also been one of the most consistent forms of what I suspect is communication from my higher self or guardian angel or what not, especially when I hear a song for the first time and I just completely lose myself in it, swept away by the feelings it gives me.

I find Celtic music, especially Adrian von Ziegler's, as well as piano pieces and Indie game music the most common culprits. And I've also found, the most I listen to a piece, the less effect it has on me.

Which makes me think that these pieces I stumble on that resonate so powerfully within my body, are sent to my by someone high above, that apply to a situation at hand. And that once they lose effect, that means the situation has passed. I just wish I could understand what they're trying to say, because a lot of the pieces are just music, there's no words.
