Finding your song

When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another.

by Jill Mattson — 

When a woman in one African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes out into the wilderness with a few friends, and together they pray and meditate until they hear the song of the child — one unique melody for each unique child. They do this in recognition that every soul has its own vibration that expresses its unique flavor and purpose.

When the women attune to the song, they sing it out loud. Then they return to the tribe and teach it to everyone else. After the children are born, the community gathers and sings their songs.

Later, when the children begin their education, the villagers gather and chant each child’s song. 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 gather at the bedside, as they did at birth, to sing the person to the next life.

In the African tribe, there is another occasion upon which the villagers sing to the person. If at any time during a person’s life, he or she commits a crime or aberrant social act, that individual is called to stand in the center of a circle and once again the villagers chant the unique song. The tribe recognizes that the proper correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment, but love and the remembrance of identity.

When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another. A friend is someone who knows your song and sings it to you when you have forgotten it. Those who love you are not fooled by the mistakes you have made or the dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly, your wholeness when you are broken, your innocence when you feel guilty, and your purpose when you are confused.

You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. If you feel good, what you do matches your song, and when you feel awful, it does not. In the end, we shall all recognize our song — and we shall sing it well. You may feel a little wobbly at that moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you will find your way home.

This African tribal practice mirrors modern discoveries from half a world away by modern masters such as Royal Rife, Sharry Edwards and Donna Eden. These vibrational energy pioneers have independently detected that people have a fundamental color or frequency, which can be equated to their song. This signature sound persists throughout life.

We may not have been formally given a song at birth as in African tribes, but we each radiate frequencies. Literally, we are a collection of vibrations — a song. The body radiates its song with sounds that are too low in volume for one to hear. But some people subconsciously react to these vibrations, which give off a multitude of subtle energy effects, including initial impressions and gut feelings.

We are vibrational beings, and although our daily vibrational composition changes along with our health and emotional states, our fundamental song stays constant. Our body seeks simply to play its song in harmony. This releases endorphins, and a sense of pleasure and well-being ensues.

Humans innately seek 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 us that we can intuitively detect with our feelings. We sense the magic in the midnight sky, as stars radiate frequencies below our hearing range. These subtle vibrations create beneficial cell-to-cell vibrations within. We are one with the universe. Our song contributes a small part to the infinite chorus of all creation.

In a remote, but intimately connected tradition, a desolate impoverished Indian settlement in northeastern Canada keeps a carefully tended field that holds perhaps 100 colorful birdhouses supported on poles situated well off the ground. These are the tribe’s burial markers — each birdhouse honors a grave. The remarkable part is that many wild birds make their homes in these small structures — singing their characteristic songs for the memory of departed souls — to the glory and beauty of nature and the nourishment of the living.
