Serendipitously: Theology and Psychology intertwining in Song

Tonight is a music tribute as there is so much wisdom that can be gained through the creative arts of song, poetry, stories and dance. I love it when situations and thoughts just interweave together to form a beautiful tapestry, serendipitous moments that bring synchronicity.  Serendipity is an unplanned fortunate discovery. This morning I went into the shop and whilst I was waiting for my order,  I picked up an Angel card. The card was Brigid. I immediately took notice as I planned my course that starts in February to start on St Brigid’s day. The 6th of February. I took notice and this is what it read: 

Brigid is here to guide you with song and poetry. She has flowing red hair that releases and the words float around you as you are inspired to write and sing. It has been some time since you have flowed with words and song. Bridget will rise within you to intensify your creativity and passion. Ground yourself by standing with green grass under your feet. Allow your mind to wander to the edge of the Cliff, where you are safe and see the winds bringing the words and the verses to you. Your mind will fill with inspiration and awaken the imagination within you“. Lotus Oracle Book: Unfolding the Flower of Consciousness

Synchronicity according psychologist Carl Jung, is a non-casual event in the external world which coincides with things going on in the internal world, such as our thoughts, feelings and dreams. The song  “Colours of the Wind”  from Pocahontas had been playing in my mind over and over again for the last two days. So instead of writing what I thought I should write today, I am flowing with guidance from above and inviting you all to paint with the colours of the wind and then dance with me as we fulfil our dreams so we can heal and be free. The symbol from the Angel card today served as a reminder that things exist for a purpose, we need to opens our eyes wide enough to see how things are colliding and interweaving within our lives, and how they might be serving us so we learn from them.

If you see repeating numbers often or animals or flowers, they have been bought to your attention for a reason; be curious. What does this mean to you? You might want to even google what is the spiritual meaning? Jung believed that dreams also had their own language and that things we see in our dreams are not signs that represent one specific idea, but rather fluid images to which we ascribe meaning based on our individual experiences.  The images in our dreams are ultimately representations of our own unconscious. Try to remember your dreams, write them down and allow your unconscious mind to speak. The answers to our problems can also be found there.  

Enjoy listening to the songs and I have copied the parts of the lyrics that resonate with my heart today. What resonates with you?

Pocahontas | Colors of the Wind | Disney Sing-Along 

You think the only people who are people 
Are the people who look and think like you 
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger 
You’ll learn things you never knew, never knew 

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon 
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned 
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain 
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind 
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind 

Brave – Learn Me Right (with lyrics) 

We will run and scream 
You will dance with me 
We’ll fulfill our dreams and we’ll be free 
We will be who we are 
And they’ll heal our scars 
Sadness will be far away 

‘What I found were “coincidences” which were connected so meaningfully that their “chance” concurrence would represent a degree of improbability that would have to be expressed by an astronomical figure.’  Carl Jung, Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle, Page 21. 

Habakkuk 2:2-3 ESV And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. 

Daniel 8:15 ESV When I, Daniel, had seen the vision, I sought to understand it. And behold, there stood before me one having the appearance of a man.

Happy New Year: May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. (traditional gaelic blessing) This traditional Irish blessing is an ancient Celtic prayer.

“May your troubles be less and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door. A wee message to say: Happy Hogmanay. Lang May Yer Lum Reek.” Scottish B
