Is there a song, when you listen to it, you start to jam? Maybe bob your head or tap your toes? The moment that beat comes on you get a smile on your face and everything in life seems just a little bit better?
Have you ever unexpectedly heard a song that took you to a certain place and time? Depending on the song, you may have gone back years or even decades!
Have you ever heard a song and immediately wanted to turn it off or change the station? Maybe you felt uncomfortable with the beat, or lyrics. There is a chance you didn’t even know why you didn’t want to listen to it, you just wanted it off.
These are all examples of music influencing our vibration. YES! It is possible! Something as simple as turning on (or off) a certain song can change the very vibration of your body. It is powerful, and a little bit like magic.
Magic? Yes. Let me show you. But you must agree to come with me on a short journey.
It is difficult to ‘show’ you something, when in fact you can only see my words. I am going to ask you to really imagine, visualize and put yourself IN the music. If you have these tunes somewhere handy, by all means, use them to help increase the power of your experience.
Eye of the Tiger (1982). Danger Zone (Top Gun 1987). Stayin’ Alive (Saturday Night Fever 1977). Ghostbusters (1983). Footloose (1984).
Choose one of these toe tappin’ songs!! Sing the lyrics! Find the beat! Doesn’t it make you wanna get up and move around? Does it bring a smile to your face? Maybe a giggle escape? YES! Because that tune, that beat, that energy is actually changing your vibration! Do you feel it? If not – close your eyes. REALLY get that music in your head and FEEL it!!
Now….let’s change the mood.
And I’m proud to be an American
Where at least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
Those lyrics are well known in The United States. If you live elsewhere, think of your own country’s anthem, or other powerful song that stirs in you emotion. If you listen to that song, a song of loyalty and faith, one that brings you to your knees in gratitude and humility, you will feel the change I am describing. You will feel your neck tingle and maybe a tear escape. You may feel emotion gather in your chest. This response in your body IS the changing of your vibration. Isn’t that neat? I dare say…a little magical!?
Hum your favorite old time love song. Recall a tune you used to hear your mom, dad or grandma sing. What hymn do you remember as a child singing in church? Listen to the soundtrack of your favorite film. Go back in time and feel what you felt as you sang your alma mater’s fight song. What you FEEL is the power of music! What you FEEL is the vibration!
Thank you for trusting me and coming along for that short ride. The Law of Vibration is my personal favorite! I love knowing I can raise mine almost anytime without much effort at all! When we allow the power of music to carry us, penetrate us, we can and will feel a powerful change in our heart, mind and body.
My life has literally been saved by the power of lyrics and music. A few years ago, I was in a very dark place after fighting mental illness for almost 20 years. I had decided I had fought a good fight, but had lost. It had become too heavy. Too much to bear, day in and day out. I was tired of faking it so that no one would know what was really going on inside. I wanted to go to sleep and not wake up. I could not face another day….never knowing how many more days there would be. It felt like too many days and I was done. And then, something magic happened.
I was listening to a song and I really heard the lyrics. I replayed that song. I searched out the lyrics. Looked them up so I could SEE the words in print. I listened to that song over and over. Then, there was another that had a similar effect. Not just one or two, but a few songs. I found that almost every day I heard an old song, a new way.
There were lyrics in those songs that made me reconsider. I pondered on those words and their message and after many days and weeks decided that I would live. I would live because I was alive. Because the story of how those songs saved me may need to wait for a different article, I will list the songs that had the biggest impact below. If you listen closely you can probably guess which lines held the most power speaking straight to my heart.
