DO YOU HEAR MUSIC IN YOUR DREAMS? Dream Info Session No. 132

    Even if you're not a musician, hearing music in a dream or meditation is a fairly common experience. But an extremely complex symbol - wouldn't you know? A lot of us wake up with a specific tune running through our head, and it matters what it is.

    Music was used by the ancients as a symbol of the intermediary between the material world and the spiritual one, a bridge between the two realities. Now think of that in terms of the different styles of music, and where those bridges might lead.

    Music represents the harmony and order of the higher planes of existence which hold the perfect blending of the Whole harmonizing with Divine Nature as it manifests into Matter. Music symbolizes the flow of life by the creation of proper harmonies, influencing and changing everything it touches. It automatically creates and destroys moods and feelings when you hear it. Quite a feat for something as ethereal as sound.

    What type of music do you listen to most often? Why? Does it change your thoughts and actions when you do? Is that different from any music you hear in your dreams? How is it different? What does that make you think of? Are there words to the music? Which ones do you remember? What kind of person would play your dream music? Who would hate it? Who would pay good money to hear it? What does it make you think of going on in your life at the time of the dream?

HEARING MUSIC - often a reminder of the Divine influences surrounding you every second - you are being reminded to listen, tune in, stay quiet enough to hear and absorb the frequencies. And hearing music or singing in a dream can be direct information about or directly from higher energies. Pay extra close attention to the style of music and especially any lyrics.

MUSICIAN - an ancient symbol for the Mind (surprise!) which is able to access and manipulate emotions, bringing them closer into harmony with the Divine Nature of the Absolute for the brief time of the song.

SACRED MUSIC - symbolic of Nature in its many and every-changing aspects. It represents the Relative in relation to the underlying Reality. Sacred music is specifically created to help the listener reach higher states of consciousness, and a very good example of the ancient phrase "The Relative is the way to the Absolute."

    So the kind of music, the instruments, who's making the music, in what setting you hear it - all of that and more determines what your dream music is telling you. How did you feel when you heard it? Was it the kind you would normally tune in to? Are you about the fall for the same ole song and dance routine? Always remember context along with the content.

    See you next week. In the meantime, pay attention to your awake interactions with music, which part of your body responds first, how it changes your behavior or thinking. And have fun with it!
