Finding Your Song




“When awoman in one African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes out into thewilderness with a few friends and together they pray and meditate until theyhear the song of the child.

Theyrecognize that every soul has its own vibration that expresses its uniqueflavor and purpose.

When thewomen attune to the song, they sing it out loud. Then they return to the tribeand teach it to everyone else.  

And whenchildren are born into the village, the community gathers and sings their song,one unique melody for each unique child.  

Later, whenchildren begin their education, the village gathers and chants each child'ssong. They sing again when each child passes into the initiation of adulthood,and at the time of marriage.  

Finally,when the soul is about to pass from this world, the family and friends gatherat the bedside, as they did at birth, and they sing the person to the nextlife.   

In theAfrican tribe there is one other occasion upon which the Villagers sing to thechild: If at any time during a person's life, he or she commits a crime oraberrant social act, that individual is called to stand in the center of acircle formed by all members of the tribe.  

And onceagain the villagers chant the child's song.

The tribe recognizesthat the proper correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment, but loveand the remembrance of identity.  

When yourecognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that wouldhurt another. A friend is someone who knows your song and sings it to you whenyou have forgotten it. 

Those wholove you are not fooled by the mistakes you have made or the dark images youhold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; yourwholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and yourpurpose when you are confused.

You may nothave grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial lifetransitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune withyourself and when you are not.    

When youfeel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, itdoesn't. In the end, we shall all recognize our song, and we shall sing itwell.  

You may feela little wobbly at that moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keepsinging and you'll find your way home.”[1]  

This real-lifeAfrican Tribal practice mirrors modern discoveries from half a world away bymodern masters such as Royal Rife, Sharry Edwards and Donna Eden. These vibrationalenergy pioneers have independently detected that people have a fundamentalcolor or frequency, which can be equated to their unique song. This signature soundpersists throughout life.

We may nothave been formally given a song at birth as in African tribes, but we each radiatefrequencies. Literally, we are a collection of vibrations, a song. The bodyradiates its song – sounds that are too tiny in volume for one to notice.Others subconsciously react to these “vibes” and they have a multitude ofsubtle energy effects, such as initial impressions and “gut” feelings.

We arevibrational beings and our daily vibrational composition changes along with ourhealth and emotional states, but our fundamental song is constant: Our bodyseeks to simply play its song in harmony! This releases endorphins – a sense ofpleasure and wellbeing ensues.

Humans innatelyseek out natural sounds that reinforce and strengthen their songs.  Some prefer the sound of the pounding sea,others seek out bird songs or the wailing wind in remote locales.  Even the stars and heavens offer songs to usthat we can intuitively detect with our feelings. We sense the magic in themidnight sky, as stars radiate frequencies below our hearing range. Thesesubtle vibrations create beneficial cell-to-cell vibrations within. We are one withthe universe. Our song contributes a small part in the infinite chorus of allcreation.

In a remote,but intimately connected tradition, I once visited a desolate Indian settlementin northeastern Canada. Their Wiseman gave me a tour of the humble, evenimpoverished village. Out of the way, along the route I saw a carefully tendedfield that held perhaps 100 colorful birdhouses supported on poles, well offthe ground. I asked the Shaman what was the significance of the birdhouses? Hereplied that these houses were their Tribe's burial markers; each birdhouse honoreda grave. The remarkable part was that many wild birds made their homes in thesesmall structures - singing their characteristic songs for the memory ofdeparted souls - to the glory and beauty of nature and the nourishment of theliving.
