Recently having watched Florence Foster Jenkins, the ear splitting story of an awful opera singer who managed to sell out a concert at Carnegie Hall, this older blog popped up for review.
Years ago, an on-line photo of the Opera House in Paris brought to mind a humorous image. Perhaps the angels of laughter were around as I imagined my life an ongoing opera. Each family member and friend on the stage, belted out their words with great feeling and gusto.
I got a playful glimpse of my singing a soulful aria in the middle of a heated debate, enough to silence anyone.
In Practical Wisdom from Kabbalah and Edgar Cayce, Elliot Chiprut includes a helpful quote on what to do when in need of a mood lift. It can happen just by using our voice.
"Then sing a lot about the work -- in everything the body does. Hum, sing -- to self; not to be heard by others but to be heard by self." (Edgar Cayce Reading 3386-1)
Cayce also advised a client: "If there arises in the experience, then, a decision to be made, whether upon the material things, a change in residence, a change of environments of any nature or type, do so under the influence of such music." (Edgar Cayce Reading 1042-2). The music he referred to related to soft, natural sounds. Finer types of music develop our higher selves.
This morning as I was about to edit this old musical blog, my attention was drawn to a little angel with a blue bird on my desk. I found it odd to be turning her upside down to read the label:
"Sing The Prayer In Your Heart"
It set the final note. With one more light-hearted touch from the past. Enjoy the Voice of An Angel on youtube.
Enjoy your day with the Angels. Sing the prayer in your heart.
Love and joyful blessings,
