Music of the Soul

Music of the Soul

 

Another psychic creative ability in addition to automatic writing is the ability to get aural communications of music. It’s possible that you have a musical talent, even if you haven’t yet tapped into it. Perhaps you have always had a special interest in music, and you may even play or sing. Some of you may do it naturally, even if you don’t have formal music education. It’s also possible that at some time in the past, you wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument or to sing, but you got very frustrated with a particular aspect of the learning process and simply quit. If such is the case, remember that it’s not too late to incorporate music into your life in some way that will be right for you.

Natural psychic creative talent is sometimes more of a curse than a gift. There is no way to teach that which you know intuitively. When you try to work with someone who teaches in a different way, the results are usually very discouraging for both pupil and mentor. Just because you can’t learn the same way as others does not mean that you aren’t creative in music. Natural ability cannot be taught; it is something that you are born with. It is a part of your mental makeup, just as your other talents and intuitive gifts.

If you are already a musician, you can greatly benefit through automatic performance. Every single sound and note has the potential to allow Universal Energy to flow through it. It is the energy that provides natural intuitive performance. When the essence of the soul is allowed to flow through the energy, then the music comes from the Universe, and the performer is only the mechanism through which it is played. Your greatest responsibility is to keep the instrument of yourself in tune and to be prepared to amplify the music that is played through you.

Automatic Performance

This technique can apply not only to the performance of music but to anything that is creative. Before each performance, ask your internal and external guidance systems for you to be allowed to represent the Universe and perform at the best level that is possible. Always take a deep breath, exhale, and for a moment let yourself focus on your third eye and your guidance systems. Feel yourself becoming more and more in balance with the Universal Mind. Ask your Belief that you will be open to the sounds of the Universe to be played through you and that you become an amplifier for its beautiful music.

Suggest to yourself that you will let your unconscious mind open so that the musical images will flow out to be heard by those who are ready to hear the music. Let your mind, body, and soul become in tune with the universal peace and love that flows through the music. As you feel the energy begin to flow through and around your body, prepare to let yourself become totally absorbed in the music. Suggest to yourself that you are on automatic pilot, and what is coming through you is the pure music of the Universe. Now let yourself become immersed in your musical performance trance.

Spontaneous Creativity

Bob and Robin Orfant, musicians and composers, created three albums of music on the art of Maxfield Parrish. Neither one of them knew how to read music, except for guitar chords. To write the music, they took their instruments and a recorder and went to the deceased artist’s old studio, where they became one with the remaining energy of his work. The music started to flow automatically, and with the recorder capturing the moment, the material for their albums was spontaneously composed and performed at the same time.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Aug. 4

If your emotional nature appears to be unsettled this morning, join the club. Millions of your fellow terra-firma dwellers are still recovering from yesterday’s Mars-Saturn and Mercury-Neptune clashes. Keep in mind that solar and planetary alignments on one day don’t just disappear 24 hours later. They may lessen in intensity, but they still have an ability to pull the rug out from under you if you are not careful.  Adding to a potential psychic storminess right now is Venus making a contra-parallel link to distant Pluto (8:59AM PDT). Being jealous, moody or temperamental won’t win rave reviews.  On the other hand, antique hunters and collectible aficionados can have a field day in locating nautical-oriented fine-art, books and treasures from the ocean depths under watery Pisces Moon. Immerse yourself in film or literary classics later on. Try out a new recipe for chowder or a favorite seafood dish.  Love vibrations are more upsetting than nurturing this evening as Juno makes a frictional, 45-degree tie with Pluto (9:21PM PDT). Improvise with a musical instrument or dance the night away to relieve yourself of internal pressures.
