What does music mean to you?

When I think about a constant in my life I always return back to music.

Music really is life. Tones are vibrations. Our world consists of vibrations. Each song has its own unique vibrational pattern and every moment in our life does too.

When we think back to different moments and times in our lives we also think back to specific songs and sounds that we connect with them.

Sometimes we hear a song and it makes us think back to a specific moment or a specific time or event in our lives. It either makes us happy or sad. When we’re sad we can turn to sad music to embrace our feeling or we can choose to turn to happy music so that it can lift up our mood. There are also certain songs that no matter how sad we are when we hear them we can’t help but smile.

Sometimes I wake up with a song stuck in my head and I am certain that it is because that song is related to what I’ve just been dreaming about, even though I might not remember what it was.

When you remember specific lines from a song it is because your brain has just recalled a memory that is connected to those lyrics and their meaning.

Music is so powerful that when you are dealing with something and a song comes on and its lyrics match your situation it can help you overcome whatever you’ve been faced with. But even the most shallow song, no matter how unspecific and seemingly empty the lyrics, can contain a world full of meaning when connected to something meaningful in our lives.

What makes music special is not the music itself but our relationship with it. That is why everyone loves music but not everyone likes the same type of music or the same songs. The same way everyone likes colour but not everyone likes the same colours. Everyone wants to live but not everyone has the same idea of what that means.

But life without music and music without life would be an empty state of mere existence. That’s why I want to wish each one of you a life filled with music because that is a rich life. And I will continue to provide you with it here on my blog and through my playlists on Spotify.
