Q: The music makes us feel a feeling. Can good music make us see colors and images as beautiful paintings do?

A: Music is a very pure language, more pure than the language of words. Words can be contaminated with lies, but how can you corrupt vibration? Sound can disturb or can calm the mind, like the sound of nature. It can make us feel aggressive, or bring us into a state of divine ecstasy. Humans have the ability to block emotions and bury them in the unconscious mind. However, if you allow the music to penetrate into your being, to surrender yourself to it, it can transport you to different levels of consciousness. If you block it you will experience very little, if anything at all. But embracing the music and allowing it enter you may indeed touch parts of the mind that stimulate your own creativity. In such a case, you may well see colours as well as images. Music may also trigger past memories as it seems to hold a magic key, and if the the right notes are played, with just the right rhythm and harmony it can to open up the heart to experience deep and profound love. This is why there have been so many love songs written, for when the lover composes music that has been touched by the sweetness of the heart it has the power to inspire and move the heart of the beloved in a most transcendental way. If one has a deep love affair with the divine, God or creation itself is the Beloved and the source of inspiration. This is why music has been used for sacred purposes as a way to commune with the divine, be it the mystical music of the Sufis, Hindu chants, Sikh shabds, Islamic prayers, Jewish siddurs, as well as tribal and shamanic rites. The devotee is so filled with the love of the divine that the heart wishes only to sing ecstatic words of praise and gratitude. All cultures have recognized that music touches the very soul and when communion has been reached visions of angels, deities, spirit-guides, and other such phenomena may be seen. This is known as divine sight, which is different than normal physical sight that can perceive only the material world.
