Music, Meditation, and Tears
Music has a magical way of opening up my heart. I wonder… is this for everyone, or just me?
This morning as I was meditating, this song came on. I don’t actually know the name of it, as it’s on my meditation playlist that has hundreds of songs on it that I listen to regularly for meditation. And since I’m listening during meditation, it’s not like when I hear a song I like, I stop meditating, pick up my phone, check out the name of the song and click the like button!
So this morning, when this song came on, I could immediately feel it touch something inside me. It was like a direct connection to my heart and soul. Suddenly tears started to flow, from just a trickle to a full-on sobbing. For no apparent reason.
And it felt soooooooo good. So healing. So welcome. Something between sadness and joy. It was like a release of energy… of something I didn’t even know was in me that needed or wanted releasing or rinsing. I never figured out what it was. I didn’t spend too much time thinking about it. I just let it flow.
And then, just like that, it was over. And I got on with the meditation.
I was at peace.
And now, I’m looking forward to the next time I meet up with music that opens the door to my heart with curiosity, wonder, joy, and love.
