I’d like to think at times that I am more than an ‘EB mom’, but sometimes the lines get blurred. EB is part of everything I do, even though I do not have the condition, it dominates a lot of my day and of our family’s life. Still, sometimes I crave some answers. Not exactly the ‘why me?’ kinds of answers, I just want to know what exactly is my path, what the point of it is, what is the reason for things. After all, I do feel picked on by fate, but am I really?
Of course, up to 2001, I had no idea there was a reason or a point to anything. My ‘awakening’ came in forms of books. I know there are skeptics out there, and it’s OK, but for the past several years I’ve been touched and helped greatly by my understanding there is more to life than this. It all started with books from Brian Weiss and Michael Newton and from the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. I forever longed to have some of my questions answered by a psychic, but before I was able to find a good one (…and I still want a reading from Theresa Caputo!!) I found a way for spirits to give me messages in an unique way.
I have an iPod with a ‘favorite’ playlist of songs. Mind you, I have several thousands of songs on my iPod, and I hand picked about 2,000 (still quite a bit!) for my ‘faves’ list to play on long trips in the car so there is no chance of hearing the same song twice. We go to Stanford and camp often, and those are 5-6 hour trips, so I need this. This playlist has songs of basically all genres from the most popular songs of today to hits from the 1940s and classical music, many italian songs and anything in between. One day I was inspired. Out of the blue I asked Alex to pick the next song on my ‘shuffled’ mode. To my shock and tear-filled surprise the song ‘Even Angels’ by Fantasia came on. I could not ask anymore because I was a little creeped out. On my way back home I asked again if Alex had a message for me for Christmas, and then the song ‘My Wish’ by Rascal Flats came on. Tears. Coincidence? Hmmm…
For the following years, every now and again, every time I felt ‘strong’, I would ask for a song and BAM, there it was. Either ‘Tears in Heaven’ (Eric Clapton) would pop up, or ‘One Sweet Day’ (Mariah Carey), ‘I will remember you’ (Amy Grant) and ‘the Dance’ (Garth Brooks) among many others. I no longer thought it was a coincidence. No way.
Then last year, on my trips to see the psychic in San Diego (I researched this lady endlessly to make sure she was the real deal!), Nicky was intrigued by this and started asking all kinds of people for messages. It was amazing how all songs were so appropriate, Nicky and I would look at each other in disbelief. When I asked my Nonna for a message, this italian song came on called ‘Ascolta il tuo cuore’, which means ‘Listen to your heart’. As a matter of fact, anytime we asked an Italian person a question, an Italian song would come on. The translation of the song is here (http://lyricstranslate.com/en/Ascolta-il-tuo-cuore-Ascolta-il-tuo-cuore.html) and as you will read they are amazing lyrics, I am also putting the video here below.
When I asked the psychic about it, she said YES, they can communicate that way. The power of music is not lost in spirit, it is said that music’s vibration are the perfect path of communication.
So, there you have it. I’ve always been a fan of music, dating back to my DJ days in Italy, and it’s because of music that I met my husband, who was the manager of a music store. His love of music surpasses mine though, he’s always listening to his iPod. Even around the house or everywhere we go.
Love and Light,
