The Voice of the Dead: Connecting with Spirits through Music
Connecting with spirits through music : The Universal Language
Do you think it’s possible to connect to spirits? Could music act as a voice for the dead? Maybe in playing music from their time period or something they loved to listen to when they were alive you can open some kind of a door way. Or If we “are energy” could it be the electrical currents that the music is traveling through that gives them the perfect way to connect to us?
Many Native American traditions use music to create energy/power/magic as part of connecting with spirits. Even certain churches used to sing to draw in the Holy Spirit and some people believe you can connect to a Spirit Guide using music. Music is often even used to connect to your inner spirit to carry you to enlightenment. And has been used in paranormal experiments to connect with the dead.
The five senses are important to the physical but the ability for souls to move material items is incredible. Some people are more in tune with what they hear and see. I think not only is it possible to connect through music but I have done this myself during cremation ash infusions. While infusing cremation ashes into glass art. Music is something I use during the process to feel connected to the person I am honoring. I think it could draw them to us and I have experienced this “musical” phenomenon twice now.
Songs come on the radio that have meaning. Radios turn on by themselves. Playlists playing I never touched with songs that you know deep in your soul were like words from the departed. These things are not coincidences. Maybe music is the universal language and with it you can open some doorway.
Native American Indians believed you could squint your eyes and watch the souls leave the body. This “energy” is traveling to the spirit world. The soul is energy at it’s essence. We are all made from this. Energy never dies, it simply transforms. Energy that is here- there and everywhere. We are always in connection with this energy unknowingly. Why couldn’t it be that “energy” can connect to this world with music being the perfect conduit to speak for the dead?

Grief- Holding On & Letting Go of Cremation Ashes
Is a pile of collected Urns and Boxes what you intend on leaving as the legacy of your family when you pass away?
The grieving process seems never ending. People mourn in different ways. It takes time to be able to finally let go of the pain while also not forgetting and becoming able to celebrate the past. While many people are able to find a sense of closure after going through the funeral or memorial services or just a gathering of people reminiscing in tribute, some are not able to let go. The process of planning and contacting people, and speaking with relatives keeps the mind and schedule busy, and in a sense, keeps your loved one alive. After the services are over and what is called “normal life” resumes all around you, it can be the most difficult of times.
Letting go is something unfortunately some find they simply cannot do, especially when cremation is involved. Unless the ashes were placed in a formal memorial they often get carried around or stored away, even in a closet. Unfortunately this is common with a loved family pet as well. Leaving some of us to become “bone collectors” so to speak. If this is you, you know that letting go is part of the process of healing. Letting go is also one of the hardest things to do. As the days, weeks and years pass, your life and time ticks away and your loved ones ashes are still with you, meaning you have not really let go at all.
