Why is music so important in all cultures, at any time of our life on earth, everywhere? What it is that makes it, almost, magic? Well.. music is actually a portal. To parallel universes. It is not the only portal, but it is one of the easiest one to access. Music, simply put, transforms your states. It puts you in a specific state. For example, you may feel anxious, then you listen to a certain song, and then you feel calm. You feel like your head is all over the place, then you listen to certain tunes, and you feel more composed and focused. And you may say, sure well my behavior or state can change with anything. True! But music is, itself, the actual instrument to use to purposely change a state of a person or of masses, without any movement needed so in a passive manner, continuously and deeply. The frequencies and vibrations of music alter your state even without you wanting to or without you being aware of it. They just get in your brain and body and alters it. They create, when powerful, a big wave of change. And can even put you in a trance. It is common to use music (and I include chants) in religious or spiritual ceremonies for example, or when performing a certain ritual. It puts the energy of all people present in a certain state, so that all can access a certain universe rather than another one. It is also very common for people purposely use music to be put in a certain state that make them feel certain emotions. For example, when an accountant goes to break dance classes, it is not only because he likes that particular style of dance, but most importantly because it makes him be in a state of total freedom, total expression of his being, without any care or problem in the world, even if for just 30 minutes. In a way, he gets to feel feelings like freedom or flow that he may have difficulties in accessing in his daily life. He basically comes a different person, for those 30 minutes. Unfortunately, expressing oneself or feeling flow just for 30 minutes and then getting back to a life where one feels oppressed and in a cage won’t put you in a parallel universe, it will just make you have a glimpse at it; it is up to you to take the necessary action to actually make the jump, to become the person who constantly is in that state.
So, when I say music is a portal, it is because it can purposely and on a sub-conscious level put you in a different state that will allow for you to make different actions. With training and exercise you can also change your state yourself, but that requires very high levels of awareness and comprehension that not many people reach. Music, well music is for the masses! It is the most elegant and subtitle way to change the tune, to change the frequency of a person, and therefore allowing that person to step in a parallel world, a world that is aligned with that new frequency and state of being. If your brain is sensitive enough, with music one can enter into no time and no space, into the beautiful, sweet, magnificently beautiful present moment, that is the basis for creation. So, this is music.
