Messages Through Music

Updated: Nov 14, 2021

A few months before my dad passed away, I asked him to send me a list of songs that I could put on a playlist to remind me of him. This is what he gave me:


Many of his song choices, looking at it now, I find so ironic. They connect to all I’ve experienced with Dad. The movie Somewhere in Time is one my dad’s favorite movies and is about a man who has adventures in consciousness in order to discover love with a woman because his intuition told him she was supposed to be a part of his life. The song “All I Ask of You,” from Phantom of the Opera, speaks so much of similar messages and sentiments that have been coming from Dad since his passing:


“Let me be your freedom, Let daylight dry your tears; I’m here, with you, beside you, To guard you and to guide you.


Let me be your shelter, Let me be your light; You’re safe, no one will find you, Your fears are far behind you.


Let me lead you from your solitude. Say you need me with you, here beside you, Anywhere you go, let me go too, that’s all I ask of you.”



“The Music of the Night,” also from Phantom of the Opera, speaks of a hidden man who is speaking of love for a woman who is out of reach as they are not in the same worlds:


“Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation.

Darkness stirs and wakes imagination.

Silently the senses abandon the defenses.


Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams.

Purge all thoughts of the life you knew before.

Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar.

And you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.


Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world.

Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before.

Let your soul take you where you long to be.

Only then can you belong to me.”


What is most beautiful is that Dad has continued to add to this playlist. Sometimes, when I wake up in the morning, there is a song in my head that I haven’t heard in ages. This never happened to me before in my life until I was connected with the greater reality. Sometimes, I ask him for a song, and he gives me a title that I can easily look up. That’s my favorite because they are often songs I either haven’t heard or are from so long ago that they simply are buried in my memory and I don’t remember them until I find them on youtube. Their lyrics always pertain exactly to what’s been on my mind lately or what I’ve been experiencing with Dad.


Two of my favorite songs that Dad has sent me are “You’ve Got a Friend,” which came on a particular tough morning, and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” during a time when I was worried that maybe I wouldn’t be able to connect with Dad like this always. I couldn’t have recited any single one of these verses expect the chorus, it’s all I remembered. But when I looked up the song and listened to the lyrics, oh did the tears flow:



“Remember the day I set you free. I told you, you could always count on me, darling. And from that day on I made a vow. I’ll be there when you want me some way, some how.”


“If you’re ever in trouble, I’ll be there on the double. Just sense for me, oh baby. My Love is alive, way down in the heart, although we are miles apart. If you ever need a helping hand, i’ll be there on the double just as fast as I can.”


“Don’t you know that there, Ain’t no mountain high enough, Ain’t no valley low enough, Ain’t no river wide enough, To keep me from getting to you, baby.”


If you’d like to listen to my ever growing Dad playlist, you can find it here.


Nature defined: The natural forces that control what happen in the world; A creative and controlling force in the universe; An inner force or the sum of such forces in an individual; The external world in its entirety.


Nature’s Way is beautiful. Read on to be inspired by the journey. The way is through the heart.

About my Nature's Way journey 

IMG-7484.jpg

On Nov 1, 2020, my dad moved from this world to the next. He was a fun-loving man who always could have a good laugh under any circumstance (he laughed his way through his final days), an avid outdoorsman and lover of nature, and he was known for his physical strength and bravery, not to mention his voice. He was my perfectly imperfect Dad. In a way, his death was a two year journey experienced together that continues. Twelve hours before my dad passed away, I experienced an inexplicable force of nature while holding his hand. 

After he passed, Dad began to use nature to open me up to a greater reality, helped me to understand my true nature, and is leading me to walk through life filled with love, joy, and peace, unafraid to speak my truth.

I like to say that Dad was led home, and me open. Open to Divine love, full presence to life, and connecting to those in the world just beyond ours. From beyond the veil, my dad has led me on a completely unexpected transformational journey to my inner Light, and I share that journey here.
