Triggering Stories And Feelings With Music
As part of exploring some new stories for myself, I came across an internet radio station that plays hits from the 50s and 60s, and it has been a revelation.
I was born in 1950 so this is the music I heard as a child and teenager. It has been very stimulating to listen to it again with my perspective now.
Interestingly, many of the songs I don’t consciously remember, but we immediately respond to them in a physical way, and resonate with the feelings of listening to them back then. When a song I really like comes on I can feel myself drifting into a bit of a trance state.
This turns out to be pretty big for me. Suddenly I am aware of how the currents of energy flowing through me at that time are connected to the currents of energy flowing through me now.
These old songs are all telling stories and these same stories, with similar accompanying feelings, are the ones catching my attention today. Hmmmmm…
Have I been telling myself the same stories, again and again, throughout this whole lifetime? When do we catch on to this?
And what happens when we write a new story? [or song!]
