Music-A Reflection of Consciousness

Written by Mathew Naismith 

I had a couple of interesting responses in relation to my last post, Music - A Better Understanding of Consciousness, I love other people's reflections as it's all a reflection in how versatile consciousness itself really is.

A good internet friend of mine said their vibrations totally change when their dog died, once you take a tune that we are harmonious with out of our lives, our own vibrations change, the way we dance to life most often also changes, we can even become more destructive to ourselves and others. What most often occurs is the way we dance in life can also attract other people who are destructive or disruptive to our own vibrations, this is the law of attraction. Once we lose a harmonious tune within ourselves, we become a magnet by attracting disharmonious vibrations, this I feel is due to our own disharmony. It's worth being aware when losing a harmonious tune within our lives, like a pet or another partner of some kind, that we can become disharmonious and attract other disharmonious tunes (vibrations) that can indeed change the way we dance to life, how we act and react to life.

You could say  it's unwise allowing an external influence, like a pet for example, to be the main tune within our lives that keeps us balanced and happy, if we were living in a perfect world, this wouldn't occur but we don't live within a perfect world. We actually live within a disharmonious world and when we find a harmonious tune within this disharmony, we literally allow this tune to be a part of us. When you lose a pet or a partner, it's like having this harmonious tune within yourself ripped from you, it's quite devastating to say the least. I'm only speaking for myself here, I didn't mind having this tune ripped from me because it meant I was lucky enough to have such a tune within my life to start with!!     

It is wise to find happiness and harmonious tunes within yourself, this can be accomplished through, meditating, praying, chanting, singing and so on, each of these practices can give us this inner harmony and happiness without relying on external forces to do so. This however should, in my mind, not detract us away from allowing other external harmonious tunes to be a part of our lives, these practices allow us to still be in harmony after the loss of such external harmonious tunes, in other words our own tune doesn't change, our dance to life stays harmonious. This sounds easy but it's not, this is because we live within a disharmonious existence, the loss of our own internal harmonious tune automatically attracts other disharmonious tunes from around us. So what's the trick? Just be aware and understanding of what is being said here.

I also received the following response which I rambled on in reply too. The response, I took, was in relation to music taking us wherever we want to go.    

I believe that. It takes me any where I want. nice share.

My Reply

For sure, when I play heavy metal music, I'm in quite a different reality than when playing country or classic music. I think the various music we have, reflects the different consciousness's we can experience.

Why do most wealthy people play classic music? Wealthy people can be the most destructive people, I feel they need classic music to take them into a different reality, a reality that is more harmonious, in other words classic music gives them balance within their own vibrations to some extent. 

The interesting thing is, can these wealthy people resonate with poorer people? Most of the times not, I feel this has to do with the music they play and resonate within themselves. When a wealthy person resonates with heavy metal for example, they tend to resonate with poorer people better, they have a vibration that is more harmonious with poorer people. This is the same with poorer people, once they play classic music, they tend to resonate better with wealthier people. 

It's interesting how music changes the way we dance in life, how we resonate or don't resonate with other vibrations like other people, animals, scenery and so on.

It matters not if we are listening to man made music in our lives or not, we are still dancing to the music, the music of our own consciousness which reflects on the way we dance in life, the way we act and interact within our environment. Our mentality is a reflection of the music we are dancing to, if this mentality is chaotic, it's a reflection of the music we are dancing to, our mentality is our music, take away a harmonious tune within our lives, the music, our mentality, becomes more chaotic and so does our dance in life.

Brining in external vibrations within our lives, like man made music or a pet/partner, reflects the way we dance in life, the trick is to allow these external vibrations to be in harmony with our own vibrations while being aware any disharmonious vibrations (tune) can upset our balance, our own harmonious vibrations. Once you find true harmony within yourself, no amount of disharmony can reflect on you, you become immune to all disharmony even when you are in the very midst of disharmony. I can be around the most disharmonious people and they will not reflect upon me unless I allow it, at times you will need to allow this to become aware, it's a part of the process of evolving, you need to truly know and understand what you are evolving from. 

Man made music isn't here by chance, it's not something that has just evolved out of thin air, the music we are in harmony with, reflects our own inner consciousness and it also shows the various consciousness's that can be expressed. Music is to me a true expression of consciousness as a whole, when you look at the various music that's created, you realise how creative consciousness is in it's many different forms. Music is indeed a reflection of consciousness itself, now we are aware of this, we can adapt this consciousness to reflect a true harmonious existence, in all, we can reflect upon any existence we want to experience just through the music we dance to.

Music-A Better Understanding of Consciousness

Written by Mathew Naismith

It's a good idea to be aware of different perspectives of consciousness, this will allow one to become heightened or more aware within their own consciousness. This post is but one of many perspectives on consciousness that should never be taken as right or wrong, it's just another perceptive, or in this case, a new dance step.

Conscious changes are a sign that we are still evolving, in one sense it's a good thing but if you are having problems with such changes, these changes can seem like a nightmare. If you are evolving, you are going through a conscious change, in other words you are becoming more aware of consciousness itself, this awareness can be quite discomforting to us if we are not prepared. This I think is due to our vibrations, try listening to classical music after listening to heavy metal music, one's harmonious and the other quite chaotic, not everyone is going to be able to handle this, this is the same with consciousness.

We are going through a conscious change, we are coming from a chaotic heavy metal period of vibrations into a harmonious classical period of vibrations, some people are going to handle this better than some.  I can listen to classical music and straight away listen to heavy metal music, I appreciate each individual vibration for what it is, this is only because I can resonate with either vibration at any given time. My wife again is quite different to this, I don't always resonate with my wife's choice of music as she doesn't of mine, this conscious change that we are all going through is to me the same, some people will handle it better than others.

Instead of being predominantly influenced by a chaotic heavy metal music (vibration) to dance to, we will now be predominantly influenced by  classical music, our dance steps are going to be quite different for a lot of us. How easy is it at times to learn new dance steps?  If we are used to dancing to heavy metal music, any dance step that is conducive to this heavy metal music is going to be easier to learn than dancing to classical music. We are now, through this conscious change, expected to dance to classical music, of course the steps are going to be hard to learn, this is until we become aware enough of such dance steps. Being focused and aware of our new steps is going to be vitally important to us, this focused awareness allows us to dance to these new steps a lot easier, this is why I think it's important to be aware of different perspectives of consciousness, in other words different dance steps to the new classical tunes/music (consciousness).

I've noticed a lot of older people just don't want to know about this new consciousness, this is quite understandable, why at this stage in their lives should they have to learn new dance steps to new tunes?  There are also a lot of younger people who don't want to know either for one reason or another, this conscious change is going to be another matter for them, they will either learn these new dance steps or they won't. Learning new dance steps to a new tune isn't going to be easy for these people, we need to all be aware of this.  The thing is,  this conscious change is going to herald a different influence upon us all, a period predominantly  influenced by harmonious vibrations (music) that we will learn new steps to dance to. No, this isn't going to be easy for a lot of people, this is made even harder because they now have to learn to dance to a new tune as well.

Learning new dance steps is one thing, learning these new steps to a new kind of tune is something else, no conscious change is easy to go through but it's made worse when we are ill prepared through not being aware of such changes, in other words it's pointless sticking your head in the sand and hoping this new tune and it's new dance steps don't exist.  It's like being in a reality predominantly influenced by heavy metal music (chaos), it exists but we should also be aware that other kinds of music also exist. This is inline in being aware of the numerous perspectives of consciousness itself, being aware of other tunes that we can dance to.  

It is not easy being aware of other tunes/music while existing in a reality predominated by certain tunes/music, our focus is on the present tunes being played. I believe in our case it's been heavy metal music that created the chaos within such a reality. The way realities behave, I believe, are due to the music being played, this means no reality is the way it is by accident, it's created through certain vibrations being resonated, in our case it's been music that has been chaotic, this of course is going to create a chaotic existence.

So what is this heavy metal chaotic music that we have been dancing to?

This is interesting, the more motion we have the  more chaos we produce, look at how we dance to heavy metal music to classical music, heavy metal music is far more chaotic within the dance than dancing to classical music, classical music naturally produces more of a flow in the dance than just a thoughtless motion.

So what this is saying is this new consciousness is going to take more thought, it's not conducive to thoughtless dance steps like we have been experiencing. We are destroying this planet at an alarming rate, this  is conducive to the dance steps we are dancing to which is brought about by the tune/music that has predominated this reality.  We are basically dancing to tunes that are naturally going to produce  thoughtless dance steps.

You might perceive that this new conscious change is all about thinking less, in a sense it is but in another sense it's not. We are actually thinking less now within this chaotic reality at present, however, once we learn these new steps to the new conscious change, like any dance step once thoroughly learnt, we no longer think of such steps while dancing , these steps become automatic to us without thought. We must also look at the dance itself to each tune/music being played, some are naturally  conducive to flowing dances and other aren't.

Each reality is predominately influenced by a certain tune (vibration) that automatically creates certain dance steps, all we are doing in this present reality is dancing to tunes that influences us in a chaotic way. When we change the tune, we change the way we dance, in other words the way we act and react within a reality. It's not the reality that influences us, we influence the reality that in turn gives us a tune we can harmoniously dance to, we are indeed the reality we experience.
