Music is a superhighway into your subconscious—the feelings, thoughts and ways of being that reside in you but only as potentials, not as lived realities.
Listening to an awesome song is like an unintentional therapy session. It’s a potent magic that connects you to a deep place without you knowing how it happens.
The only thing missing is being able to integrate the experience into who you are.
Working on your problems does the same thing but makes you conscious in a way that enables you to use what you learn in your everyday life.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, human problems aren’t pathological even though they cause pain; they’re meaningful processes designed to force you to grow at a deep level.
Listening to your favorite music is also your personal growth process trying to happen although we don’t usually think of it this way.
You’re drawn to certain music because it gives you an experience you need more of in your life.
It makes you feel things that are already within you but you don’t have access to…until your song rocks the radio!
Listen to your favorite song or imagine hearing it in your head.
Then meditate on these questions:
How does the song make you feel?
What state of mind and body does it put you into? Describe it in detail.
If you felt this way more often how would it change your life?
How can you connect with this way of being even without the song?
What stops you from doing this?
How can you work through this block?
Become the music you love—it’s your enlightenment!
