The magical powers of music

“While you listen to music, learn to work with it; use it to form a mental picture of all the things you wish for. You want so many things- and yet you do nothing to get them! Music gives you all possibilities and the very best conditions, for it creates an atmosphere that is like a strong wind filling your sails and driving your ship on towards a new world. Music is a powerful aid in making things come true. Instead of letting your mind wander aimlessly, fix it firmly on the most ardent  desires of your heart. If it is health you need, imagine yourself to be the picture of health: see yourself in all your activities – walking, talking or eating- radiant and glowing with health and communicating health to all around you. If it is intelligence and light that you need, if you are always getting things wrong and making a fool of yourself, use music to help you imagine that you are learning and understanding things, that light is flooding into …

Attuned to heavenly harmony

“Listening to an orchestra play or a choir sing could be an encouragement for people to reflect on the harmony that should reign between them. Unfortunately, even after a magnificent concert during which they have all resonated as one, they won’t think to do anything that would allow them to continue to live in this harmony and beauty. Disharmony is the most widespread state in the world, so widespread that even religions and spiritual movements are still full of confrontation. Not only are they opposed to one another, but within each religion and spiritual movement there are the same misunderstandings and conflicts. And the Lord scratches his head while he watches this mess going on in his name. So, from now on, why not think of the Lord as a conductor, whose role it is to make harmony reign? He is the one who possesses the true tuning fork. When humans become capable of being in tune with one another, they will be like instruments playing a wonderful symphony.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov   Daily Meditations

Divinely inspired music- Ludwig van Beethoven

“I love Chopin a lot. Paganini also. And of course Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Berlioz.  The most important thing for me is to sense a language in the music. I love music which speaks, which expresses something. Listen to Chopin, how expressive his music is! There is language there, every notes speaks to us. And, of course, he is not the only one…. Nowadays you meet fewer and fewer truly inspired artists, these true artists who first seek to elevate themselves in order to contemplate the beauty of the world above so as to reproduce it in their art. In the past, artists did not start work until they felt they had come into communication with entities and currents of the celestial regions. And they passed on rules to each other, the art of composing music or poetry, of painting or sculpture. Beethoven, for instance,  was a being whose brain, or more exactly, whose nervous centres for music were so perfected, that he heard certain melodies from the invisible world, which he then transcribed. Of …

Music is the breathing of the soul

Everything in nature sings and vibrates: all creatures emit vibrations which are diffused around them in the form of musical waves. This is why it is true to say that everything in nature is music. There is music in a rushing stream, in the murmur of a spring, in the patter of raindrops, in the roar of a cataract and the ceaseless ebb and flow of the ocean waves. There is music in the voice of the wind, in the rustling of leaves and the chirping of birdsong. And the music of nature constantly arouses and stimulates the musical element in human beings, kindling in them the desire to express themselves through the medium of a musical instrument or through song. When human beings feel the need to communicate their feelings and emotions it is to music that they turn spontaneously: when they want to express their deepest religious sentiment they turn to music; all their joys and sorrows. their love and every profound experience is expressed in music. Music is the breathing of man’s …
