Starry Starry Night Blog

✨🙏🏻💞 Every once in a while a song will come to me (or through me?) in the past they usually come in my dreams but it’s happening now more than ever during my meditations now... suddenly a song will almost mystically reveal itself to me and I discover it having a very etherlc and much deeper meaning for me in that moment than I ever could have imagined or dreamed of... and it’s as if I am hearing it for the very first time... when that happens for me it feels almost as if something reaches in and touches my Soul so deeply that it will often move me to tears and I don’t have any words....so this morning when I arrived to the beach at dawn I looked up at the beautiful indigo night sky and saw all the stars before me~ as I often do~ but this time I suddenly heard the words... “starry starry night”... and the melody from the song “Vincent” by Don McLean began playing in my head.... and it continued this morning as I was watching the sunrise... and the tears began flowing down my face... when songs come to me in this way, I cannot help but feel that it is usually a gentle whisper from the Universe (or maybe even what I like to refer to as my song Angels) for me to go look up the rest of the lyrics... and when I do... more often than not... I will listen with new ears and hear them differently than I ever have before and I will usually feel something shift deep within me.... and in that Sacred moment I can feel in every cell of my being the gifts it has to offer me... and although I often don’t have words or the language to describe why a certain song will suddenly move me in a deeper way than it ever had before... I can feel the many facets and layers of metaphors and symbolism that reach in and touch something deep inside of me... and I can feel how I am changed in some way for the better... so I’ve learned to just trust and surrender to this beautiful experience and receive it as the gift it was meant to be and hold a deep and Sacred honoring for the process which I find is usually very simple... to get me to drop deeper into my heart.. and my feelings... in some soft and gentle way... and in those moments I feel so deeply blessed because it usually happens for me during times when I seem to need it the most. 💞🙏🏻✨😇

 

Vincent~ by Don McLean

Starry, starry night

Paint your palette blue and gray

Look out on a summer’s day

With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills

Sketch the trees and the daffodils

Catch the breeze and the winter chills

In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand

What you tried to say to me

And how you suffered for your sanity

And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they did not know how

Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night

Flaming flowers that brightly blaze

Swirling clouds in violet haze

Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

Colors changing hue

Morning fields of amber grain

Weathered faces lined in pain

Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

Now I understand

What you tried to say to me

And how you suffered for your sanity

And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they did not know how

Perhaps they'll listen now

For they could not love you

But still your love was true

And when no hope was left in sight

On that starry, starry night

You took your life, as lovers often do

But I could have told you, Vincent

This world was never meant for one

As beautiful as you

Starry, starry night

Portraits hung in empty halls

Frameless heads on nameless walls

With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

Like the strangers that you've met

The ragged men in the ragged clothes

The silver thorn, a bloody rose

Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now I think I know

What you tried to say to me

And how you suffered for your sanity

And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they're not listening still

Perhaps they never will
