‘Teach me to listen to the song of the Earth’.  That is the byline on my email signature.  And listen I do.  Today I will be doing something in addition to listening.  Today I will be joining many others as we sing a sonic Valentine to our Beloved Gaia on World Sound Healing Day.

When I was a child I loved the hymn ‘This is my Father’s World’.  I still sing it today, especially when I am walking on the grounds of the Mystery School.  The first stanza of the hymn is:

‘This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears, All nature sings and round me rings the music of the spheres’.

I never gave much thought to the phrase ‘Music of the Spheres’ as a child.  After all,  there were so many phrases that didn’t make sense to me in the hymns I sang.  It’s only been in the past few years that I became curious about that phrase.  ‘Music of the Spheres’ refers to the intertwined relationship between the structures of music and those of the physical world.  It is a conscious awareness of mystical or spiritual qualities being transmitted through sound.

I invite you to join me today – and every day – in making ‘a joyful noise’, whether it be through song, laughter, japa, chanting, or the use of communication as a healing tool.

Happy Valentine’s Day Beloved Gaia!
