In previous posts for this series, I outlined what I believe to be compelling evidence that musical masters of the past continue to work after their passing by mentoring and guiding musicians here on earth. As a composer myself, I find it comforting to know that there are non-physical guides, far more musically accomplished than I could ever be, who might be willing to assist me. After all I’d received only a limited musical training, studying music to O’Level standard and learning to play the trombone.
Unlike Rosemary Brown, I am not a medium. I don’t have the gifts of clairvoyance or clairaudiance and so can’t see or hear any non-physical guides. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t connect with them or access their help when writing music.
After initially struggling to compose music, I learned to follow a discipline which has aided me enormously over the years. I’m convinced that this approach has helped to inspire me whenever I’ve needed ideas for some music. Moreover, it has given me the ability to successfully convert these ideas into a complete composition.
Preparing to compose music
Before starting on a new piece of music, I ask that to receive the right music for whatever project I am working on. This request is in the form of a thought, or a prayer and is ‘addressed’ to the guides who I believe will be waiting to work with me, as described in part three of this series. Usually a theme will then begin to appear in my thoughts which develops further over the course of several days.
When I feel ready to start writing the music down, I go to my music room. I then spend some quiet time in meditation, asking to connect with my guides and focussing upon the music that I am about to work with. After a while, sometimes no more than 10 to 15 minutes, I will end my meditation with a short Emerald Alignment exercise. This aligns my energy field and opens the intuitive channels through which guides can connect with me. I am then ready to begin composing.
After finishing for the day, I close down the equipment and spend a few moments silently thanking my guides.
Although I haven’t yet been consciously aware of the presence of any guides when writing music, I often have moments of inspiration when I’m in no doubt that they are helping me. Thanks to this help, I’ve made the journey from a music enthusiast who used to attempt to play pop-songs on the piano when winding down after a busy day, to a composer who has written orchestral music for use in film and educational DVDs.
