More Synchronicity

It's been around five or six months, but here is another synchronistic occurence that happened to me.

I was taught briefly by a past mentor how to listen for messages in music. One day, I had just learned what astral projection was on the internet. That same day, when I got into my car after work, I turned on the radio and a song I had never heard before was on the radio. It was called "Astral Plane" by The Modern Lovers. I haven't heard it since.

Tonight I'm all alone in my room
I'll go insane if you won't sleep with me
I'll still be with you
I'm gonna meet you on the astral plane
The astral plane for dark at night
The astral plane or I'll go insane

Well I don't see you and it's getting dark
Today we should have gone to Central Park
Well don't you want to see me ever again?
If not I'll meet you on the astral plane
The astral plane for late at night
The astral plane or I'd go insane

Well we've known each other from other lives
I want to see you today
But I'll prove my knowledge of what's inside
When I intercept you on the astral plane
The astral plane for late at night
The astral plane or I'll go insane
Alright

Well I don't see you and it's getting dark
I'd have a lot to say
But you're not the one that I can say it to
At least not today
Oh, well I don't remember it afterwords
I don't yet know the words!
But I know we've been together just this week
We've been together on the astral plane
The astral plane for late at night
The astral plane or I'd go insane

how captivating,
to dance through eternity
with companionship

To have a soulmate
in the higher astral plane
for the rest of time

Stacey, I think there are tons of messages in music - both in lyrical songs and instrumental.

Anytime music touches that point inside of you that makes your heart soar or gives you tingles all over, there is a message there. When that music touches you, take the time to look for the message.

One of my favorites is Sheryl Crow's Soak up the Sun:
"My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his rv
I can’t afford his gas
So I’m stuck here watching tv

I don’t have digital
I don’t have diddly squat
It’s not having what you want
It’s wanting what you’ve got

(chorus)
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ’em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun

(verse)
I’ve got a crummy job
It don’t pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love

Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do

(chorus)
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ’em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
While it’s still free
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me

(verse)
Don’t have no master suite
I’m still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I’m the one who has the key

Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

(chorus)
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ’em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up

(chorus)
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ’em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up

(end)
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock on"

To me this song says there are way more important things on earth than material possessions. Look up once in a while. There is the sun whose purpose is to shine for us. So we can have life and grow. We should follow that example and also give our lives so that others can grow.

Hi Gretchen,

I totally agree with you. I don't find a lot of pleasure in material things. I mean, I like them, but I don't actively seek them out. If they come to me, that's fine and great and all, but I don't dream of driving a sports car. I don't dream of living in a big house. The only thing I'm concerned about when it comes to money is whether or not I'll have enough money to buy food when I'm too old to work. Other than that, money is no big deal to me.
