In our fragmented and commercialized culture, it can be hard to know how to nurture your child’s relationship to spirit.
You may not know yourself what it means for you to be a spiritual being, someone at home with all that is unknown, unseen, or beyond your understanding.
You may not have an intact practice that feels grounded in your being.
Or if you’re fortunate enough to have a deep, consistent and rewarding relationship with spirit, you may not know how to convey this to your child.
Wherever you find yourself on this spectrum, you can always rely on music to nurture your relationship to spirit.
Not any old song will do, not any kind of music is helpful. It must be something that lifts you, that touches you, that moves you. A surprising rhythm. A sweet melody. A profound baseline. A familiar verse that comes to you when everything feels hopeless.
Fill your home with music. Start the day with a funky rhythm. Offer your child a daily dose of Bach or bluegrass, country or congas, funk or fado.
Immersed in music, she will attune to a language older than words, a powerful balm for healing disconnections.
