The Voice of an Angel...Andrea Bocelli...
my go-to place for heart connection!
Italian tenor and singer/songwriter Andrea Bocelli is a very important part of my morning ritual. I am not by nature a morning dove...rather a night blooming jasmine. But when this jasmine awakens to (very slowly) acclimate to the morning, Bocelli's music is what begins the process of my energizing.
I've been listening to and loving Bocelli for quite some time. His voice connects with my soul and though I studied a little Italian in preparation for a beautiful encounter with Firenze several years ago, the fact is I do not understand what this impressive tenor is singing.
And it makes no difference to me because it is ONLY the words I do not understand.
The FEELINGS expressed by his beautiful voice ARE the MESSAGE and they SPEAK to me. And they do MORE than that...they vibrate with the sweep of my heart.
And I am mesmerized by this vibration...it SUSTAINS me. This impulse tells me it is my HEART that is designed to direct the music of my life...not my intellect (though I dearly love to exercise it).
I believe this is true of everyone.
In some individuals the heart may be sleeping...hibernating...because of unhealed pain, protecting itself from life's countless and often unpredictable adventures. But the desire to FEEL is a human need we all share.
And the OPPORTUNITY to feel and to have the feeling RECOGNIZED is a Gift of Life.
The Divine Universe is unendingly creative in the way it sends its messages to us. Just this morning I realized I had received another tapping of this awareness a few days ago when I attended a planning meeting in Florida with David Webber, Chief Operating Officer of Practice Technology, Inc., who commented to me that he always reads his email for the FEELING of the writer, not for the words.
It is not the words of Andrea Bocelli that affect me so profoundly. It is the WAY he sings those lyrics. And it is not the words of an email that David Webber "hears"...it is the message of a heart.
Is your heart vibrating with emotion? Have you given yourself permission to feel this primal longing? And do you "hear" the HeartSounds of everyone around you?
