Practices that Connect People

Music is a magical force. Not only does music resonate with a frequency, often in harmony with other instruments, but also it helps people to resonate together and speaks to a greater harmony with the Universe.

I teach yoga and the essence of the practice of yoga is to connect body/mind/spirit, first on the individual level and then on the Universal level. Music and yoga are both great ways of resonating with other people as we experience something larger than ourselves. 

I’ve had some profound connections with other people as we play music together. While we are playing together it feels like I can truly read their mind. You can easily feel this connection with old cats who have been playing together for decades. The same thing happens while I'm teaching a yoga class and we are all moving and breathing together. In both practices of music and yoga, it's easy to feel as a member of some larger organism. 

Universal Resonance

Everything in the Universe resonates. From colors to sounds to ideas, it's all frequency. When something is vibeing similarly to the way you are tuned, you tend to naturally vibe in tandem.

In the world of sound and physics it’s called sympathetic vibration, or resonance when something vibrates at the same frequency. Sometimes I'll practice my sax in a room or studio where there is also a guitar or piano. Even though there is nobody playing those instruments, when I play a note on my sax, that same note resonates on the strings of either the guitar or piano, even though there is nobody playing that instrument. I'll pull my sax out of my mouth and the guitar or piano will still be singing, like a ghost in the room. It's freaky cool. This happens because those strings on the guitar or piano are tuned to resonate at that same frequency of not on the sax and so when they hear their frequency, they can't help but sing along. This is sympathetic vibration.

People resonate the same way. When someone says something that resonates, when you see a movie that moves you, or when you finish your friend’s sentences, you are experiencing sympathetic vibration. 

Learning to Hear Your Song

Yoga and meditation are disciplined ways of tuning yourselves to experiencing those sympathetic vibrations so you resonate with those things that are most important in your life. In yoga and meditation, we do this by cleansing and strengthening the body, by stilling the mind, and by learning how to fiercely listen and feel with all of our faculties.

Your life is a path that is constantly revealing itself to you. And as you learn to listen, all you have to do in life is move toward whatever is singing your song.
