How Music May Help You Hear Your Spirit Guides

Selfie © Lisa Rose Lodeski, 2014.

Here’s a tip on how to prepare yourself for working with your spirit guides by doing something almost all of us do daily, listen to music.

I learned this technique from my teacher, Sonia Choquette, years ago when I was training with her in Chicago.

Listening to music is a great way to relax and turn off your mind chatter. Music can move your spirit to dance, smile, and just feel good. It helps you feel your spirit, and when you’re in touch with your own spirit, it’s easier to connect to your spirit guides.

It’s also easier to connect to one spirit guide at a time, but sometimes we can’t predict how many spirit guides are going to present themselves to you for guidance when you request it. You may have a crowd! And, they may all be trying to communicate with you all at the same time! It may be difficult to figure out who is saying what! This is where listening to music helps.

Music listening, deep listening, helps to train you to differentiate between a variety of vibrations and frequencies in the form of sound.Your spirit guides are as interesting and varied as a rich piece of music.

Select a beautiful piece of classical music that you like (it’s easiest to start with classical that has a large variety of musical instruments playing in a composition) and listen to it uninterrupted with headphones or earbuds. Do this a few times and listen deeply to distinguish the different sounds created by various instruments. Also notice how you feel when you hear certain sounds that resonate with you. Sophisticated compositions use vibration and sound to communicate emotion, adventure, story-telling, and often your guides will be communicating those same ideas through vibration.

Later, when you are working with teams or councils of spirit guides, you may have several trying to communicate to you at the same time and it’s helpful to be able to distinguish one from the other vibrationally. Listening to music can get you in the habit of listening to a whole piece of sound or selecting a part of it for your focus.

Most people listen lightly to music, but when you listen deeply, you experience sounds that appears for just a moment, to make a point in the composition, and the listening experience, and it’s easy to miss. It’s the same with your spirit guides. You may miss a point if you aren’t listening deeply.

    I would hear old songs that started coming on where ever I was and several times a day…The first time I noticed this was with a song called Broken Wings by Mister, Mister…Last year it was Africa by Toto and Tiny Dancer by Elton John. It finally struck me guides or guides or angels or my higher self was perhaps trying to give me a message but I feel dense in deciphering. So how can I understand?

    Also, the past six months a song by Adele called “Hello” comes on all the time. I never liked the song as it had a depressing sound and I never ever listened to it at all. One day it came on, I went to turn it and in my mind I heard “Don’t turn it” I did anyway, and I heard “turn it back” I did and listened to it feeling something was trying to tell me something..the only remote possibility I thought was an ex of mine at some point might regret what he put me through..I would never go back with him but why would a guide put up that song? Or any of the others for that matter? Advice? Insight?

      Hello Debbie and thanks for your comments and questions. The short answer is yes, your guides are trying to communicate with you, and based on your description, using repetition of music and/or lyrics. To more clearly understand what your guides are trying to communicate to you, I suggest you begin tracking the guidance with a recording system so you may look for patterns and begin to associate meaning. The most important thing to track is what were you thinking about just before you realized your guides were communicating with you? Not at the time of realization, but before. Guidance is received more quickly than the mind can comprehend it, and so you will begin to develop a language of signs and symbols with your guides if you begin to track it, and then ask your guides for confirmation. If you aren’t sure what the meaning is, ask them to clarify it for you in a way that will be more clearly understood. If you feel called to learn more, check out my online course, Connecting with Your Spirit Guides, for training.

    Music inspires creativity by stimulating the imagination of children at an early age. As a child, when we hear a song that touches on things familiar and symbolic to everyday life such as a favorite color, animal, or food, we begin to visualize and stretch our imagination.
