Exploring Music and Tapping Into Meaning
In my previous video blogs I explored a haunting tune from Bach (view HERE) and the enticing sounds of Debussy (view HERE) through drawing to their music and seeing what emerges onto my whiteboard (including the feelings that arose).
Today, I immersed myself in the blooming, fresh sounds of Antonio Lucio Vivaldi — the Venetian Baroque composer from the 18th century.
There were several keywords that came up while I was drawing to the music:
- Growth — the feeling of outward expansion and unstoppable life.
- Portals — this was a strange keyword to come up but, in hindsight, I was drawing a lot of spirals which were purported to be ancient markers for portals or star-gates/wormholes. Read more about that HERE.
- Sacred Geometry — geometric shapes and proportions found in nature believed to be the work of God. Also associated with Platonic solids and the golden means ratio (divine proportion). Related article: The Golden Ratio: Phi, 1.618
- Flower of Life — otherwise dubbed ‘the pattern of creation’.
So, you can see there is a definite theme running here. The overall feeling I got from Vivaldi’s music was a connection to the intelligent design of the universe.
What is intelligent design?
Intelligent design is a pseudoscientific theory that some aspects of the universe and living things are best explained by an intelligent source rather than an undirected form of natural selection (as preposed by Charles Darwin).
It’s a buzz word that people use to replace the outworn version of ‘God’. I quite like it and it gives some relief to scientists who’d rather not stick their neck on the chopping block by using the G word.
It’s acronym is ID, which tickles my fancy as the word ‘id’ describes the part of the mind in which innate and instinctive impulses are manifested.
Feeling Alone in the Universe?
To conclude this prequel to my video: My gut was telling me — whilst in the process of making the video below — that if you’re feeling alone, losing your faith or connection to spirit or Source, pop on some Vivaldi! Or just go look at a flower — the Creator can be found everywhere in nature if you’re still enough and allow yourself to view the magnificence of creation.
