the album begins
music washes over me
soul connections fire
tingles ignite my body
feeling very groovy now
I had forgotten how much music can impact me.
I listen to music all the time, especially while driving for my courier job. But rarely do I sit and listen to an album like I did this weekend. And nowadays, I’m usually listening to stations on Pandora or Jango where the songs come from different artists, albums, feelings, and vibes. There is something about making the music the primary focus, not a background for other things, that shifts things for me. I was totally present with the music, allowing it to move me, both my body and feelings.
Certain music also stirs and feeds my soul. I forgot how nice it feels to let the music wash over me, cleansing and feeding me. Then I felt called to dance with the music in a slow purposeful way. What I sometimes call soul dancing, where my focus is very inward. Even though I’m dancing, my main focus is inward, allowing the music to open a channel to my soul. Much like what happens in nature, I come alive, feeling connected and part of something bigger.
Here is one of the two albums that fed me this weekend (Sade’s Love Deluxe). The other album is Spiritus; the Breath of Life by Lorellei, but I didn’t find it on YouTube. Sade’s voice is very soulful and evocative. Please listen and let me know what you think. Or tell me what music feeds your soul.
If not music, I hope you find what feeds your soul, and make time to listen to its beautiful music.
Let’s get groovy!
