The messages in the songs

Songs have meaning of course for those who write them.  The writers tell us through songs, something they want us to know….about a feeling, a thought, an experience, a person.

However, songs can also have meaning to those who hear them.  I can look back through my life and think of many times when I was affected by a song.  It reminded me of someone, or somplace, or some moment in time.  But never am I affected so much by song as when I am at an emotional low in my life.  My first noteable experience with songs that I believe were sent to guide me by spirit was first when my beloved grandfather was dying.  Many songs I heard, and even when I hear them to this day, take me back over 3o years ago to being that young person realizing she was going to lose someone who had meant the world to her.  I was also losing a great many other things that are so important to a kid that age.  I was facing going in to my freshman year in high school in a new school, in a new place, not knowing anyone, other than three people.  I was 14 and my life was in a complete upheaval.  I had just also realized I was truly in love for the first time with someone that I could not be with.  I was beginning to experiment with drugs and sex, and overall was just having a really rough time.  Self esteem was a stranger.

There are two songs from that time in my life that to this day when I hear them, I know now that they had a message  for me.  But at the time, I was not yet evolved enough to realize it.  I wish I had been.  When I hear the songs now, and I read the lyrics, I know what spirit was trying to tell me.  If I’d followed the message at the time, or had been able to, I might have been much better off.  Maybe not.  I think she was just trying to let me know she was there.  But even so, I remember wondering why these two songs in particular, had such an affect on me.  I wasn’t even a particularly huge fan of the artists and didn’t even particularly like the songs, nor even understand the lyrics.  Yet I could never get them out of my head then and they stirred something in me.  And when I hear them now, and read the lyrics, they bring out those very same strong emotions and take me back to being that girl again instead of the woman I am now with a daughter of her own about the same age.  Listening to them now, I realize there is much pain to heal from that time of my life during this time of my life.

The two songs are All through the Night by Cyndee Lauper and Sister Christian by Night Ranger.  All Through the Night was spirit/higher self’s first “hello” to me.  We had never “met” before, but in light of this being the first real challenge of my life, it was time she introduced herself.  And there was no turning back.  Through this song, she told me she would be with me through this difficult time, guiding me, as well through the rest of my life.  That she would be there, although I may not know right now, and that someday I would know.  That she understood my feelings and felt them with me.  But  in spite of it all, she was there, with me all through the night, going forward. In life.

Listening to it now, I still feel the sadness, but rather than just being a sad song that haunts me for some unknown reason other than it just being a low point in my life, I now know it was meant as something more.  Just as she said I would.  For 30 years that song has stirred intense emotions in me.  It still does, but now it feels like a good friend putting their arms around me and telling me everything is going to be OK.

That’s what our higher selves can be to us, if we let them.  Not everyone can or does……but if they pay attention, and if I pay attention, we will know they are there.  This line says it all:

They have forgotten what by day they lack.  Oh under those white street lamps, there is a little chance they may see.”

Ironically, when I read all the posts on You Tube under the video, there are several that speak of the Fall of 1984 being one of the lowest points of their life and how this song reminds them of that time, yet how this song now speaks of healing to them.  Interesting.

“All Through The Night”

“All through the night
I’ll be awake and I’ll be with you
All through the night
This precious time when time is new
Oh, all through the night today
Knowing that we feel the same without sayingWe have no past we won’t reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no endAll through the night
stray cat is crying so stray cat sings back
All through the night
They have forgotten what by day they lack
Oh under those white street lamps
There is a little chance they may see

We have no past we won’t reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end

Oh the sleep in your eyes is enough
Let me be there let me stay there awhile

We have no past we won’t reach back
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end
Keep with me forward all through the night
And once we start the meter clicks
And it goes running all through the night
Until it ends there is no end”

Listen……

How many time do you turn on the radio and a song is playing that literally “speaks” to you about something happening in your life at that moment. How many of us have had songs pop into our head, seemingly out of nowhere, and for days, perhaps weeks, walk around telling everyone we “just can’t get that song out of my head.”

Did it ever occur to you that these songs contain messages just for you?   Or maybe for someone you know?  Maybe the tune or the lyrics (if you know them) are simply soothing to you during a tough time, or the song causes you to remember a time and place.  As humans, we relate to music on so many levels, emotionally, spiritually and physically.  And those who guide us in spirit know this.

So then, did it ever occur to you that these songs are being “sent” to you something from beyond the physical realm of our understanding?

This blog is dedicated to this very subject and my own experiences where I have found guidance and answers through a song or songs that I heard, or even simply thought about.  It didn’t matter if it was a song from 30 years ago, or being played on a top 40 radio station.   Maybe I only knew one verse of the song, or no lyrics at all.  But the song was in my head nonetheless, and miraculously, when I read the lyrics, the song has meaning.

In looking back through my life, this has always happened to me, however, I have not been as open to it until now.   The direction to “Listen” came to me loud and clear after an earth-shattering ending to a relationship I had with someone very important to me who I believe at the very least is a strong soul connection, if not indeed, my twin flame.  Since then, the musical messages and synchronicities have been flowing in my life and I hope if not bringing me in to the arms of my friend again in this lifetime, then at least down my true spiritual path.

As I write here and share my stories, I invite others to share there experiences as well.  If you have no experience with this specific kind of synchronicity, I ask you to “Listen” as well.  Pay attention and you will begin to experience the guidance and the love of something greater than yourself.
