Some of the importances of Music and the Natural Worlds is to connect with something that in itself is connected to what is real and what that will bring into you. We were designed to process that which is real and nourishing to us.
When we connect to color for example, we are connecting to one of the primary essences of the naturally created worlds. It is a vital component that covers and extends through all the overlays in the natural worlds (The Creation).
We can’t live without color. Color is vibratory force and the different colors contain various frequencies (vibrations), that have direct affects on certain parts of ourselves mentally, emotionally, physically and more. They can also be a direct link to the foundations of manifested life itself. Pretty big stuff uh?!
It’s one thing to say “connect to something when you play.” But a more complete thought is the fact that we are always connected to something when doing any action. The journey into the natural worlds is to help us see that a lot of how we go on was passed down to us through genetics, upbringing, world history, where we live, and the environment affecting our overlay system at deep levels throughout our entirety. This of course subliminally affects our behavior, thought process, ethics, beliefs and more. Part of building a relationship with music and the natural worlds is to help us have more informed decision making and being much more cognizant of the how and why we do what we do. Where do the default thought processes and concepts, words and methods originate from that govern us in warming- up (as an example)? Did we look into it and wonder about it and find our own way within it or just practice what we were given whether it works for us or not? NOT THE TEACHERS fault really. It's important to go through something for a bit and see where it leads. But It shows us we have to be responsible for our own lives and process. Many teachers pass on what works for them and that is honorable because they went on a journey and found what works for them and it is real for them. In many circumstances teachers expect or hope that the student will in the end see they have to find out what works for them. They need to own the responsibility for their own development. How could it be otherwise??
