Standing on the edge of a cliff!

Have you ever found yourself standing on the edge of cliff, either physically or theoretically? That moment in time where you question your viability in this world. I’m not seeking to glamourize or justify the recumbent feelings of self-worth.edge of a cliff, suicide Just wanting to explore that vulnerable emotion where the ‘shutdown’ switch becomes a realistic option, and how we singularly or as a society can assist in the elimination of the sheer debilitating isolation and the dark shroud of hopeless desperation. This is typified in today’s music ‘edge of a cliff’ by The Streets The song in question is actually of kindness and wisdom. A victory for charity and compassion over the darkest of all feelings.

The edge of a cliff has a massive population

It is important to note. You will not be the first person to feel exactly as you may at some point do. Numerous life circumstances can trigger the capitulation of the human spirit. Death, Loss, Money, loneliness to name but a few. Millions of people have had suicidal thoughts at some point in their lives. Feeling suicidal is not a flaw in your character, and it doesn’t mean that you are mad, or weak, or unique. It only means that you are unable to process the amount of pain than you can individually cope with right now. The pain is to unimaginably high to scale. It is domineering and overwhelming and permanent at that juncture in your life. But with time and support, you can overcome your problems and the pain and suicidal feelings will pass. Listen to the premise of the music again here!
Taking the ‘edge of a cliff’ concept, The cliff is vast, and your location on it, is where your ability to internally manage the situation has hit the buffers. suicidal thoughts, edge of a cliffI however would state, and this with no medical qualification, that if you find yourself on that cliff physically or mentally. You have stepped beyond the realms of self management. This is the point where the wise man in the song should be sought for counsel. How do I know? well ive been on that cliff. Not the very edge! but certainly close enough to be talked down.

Music to listen to before the edge of a cliff is even an option

Music can assist to derail all manner of negative emotions, this being the most serious of all. Whilst it cant be relied upon solely, it can be used to reinforce the soul and spirit. It can give clarity and perspective. Nietzsche, edge of a cliff, suicideA song of fortitude and courage that instantly springs to mind is ‘So Strong’ by Labi Siffre. If it agitates the merest positive feeling, it can act as a catalyst for an entire new and positive outlook.

What are your songs or music of hope, compassion and fortitude. What music suppresses your doubts and negativity. Let us know here. There are many organisations for help, support and advice click here for a list.

Searching for your Redemption

Whether you can find redemption in yourself, or you turn to your faith (that’s spiritual and totally non denominational), or you nestle in the belonging of your significant other. Searching for your redemption and closure from circumstance that has detrimentally become a part of you, is an integral/essential part of moving forward.

So the inward search for your emotionally supportive crutch, to assimilate some good and fair reason to supress or compartmentalise your past, allowing you to move on is robotically built into all of us. To seek help, solace or counsel isn’t a sign of weakness. It is more a sign of fortitude. In desperation, there is hope and out of pain will subsequently surface pleasure and joy.

Redemption the Samm Henshaw way

The song in question that evokes this soul probing is Redemption by Samm Henshaw. A grassy, earthy, soul ridden rasping tune. It is a whole journey through the darkest of times. redemption, Samm henshawThe scouring of his own soul to find worth and purpose. The allaying of his battered and bruised being. The negativity of doubt, fear, and fatigue of his life and his purpose. His last words, are of submission and request for recognition and forgiveness, so that he can move on.

The feeling of belonging and acceptance in all of us. There are that those that will protest fervently that they find security in solitude, and their sole dependency is within themselves. redemption, joyBack slapping gratitude and transversely outcry and condemnation are a matter for themselves. This though in certain goal driven dynamics is admirable, but also inhuman. Us humans are pack animals, social beings. We are programmed to belong

To quote a famous speech from The Great Dictator. “You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate, only the unloved hate. The unloved and the unnatural”. So the essence of this post is that no matter how bad times are, or wrong we have endured or caused we all need someone or something to lean on. Not necessarily advice or mentoring, just a redemptive process of acknowledgement. Life is hard, that’s the cold hard facts for everyone to a scale. Don’t be afraid to seek support.

What is your song of redemption? Your song of needing support? I can think of numerous tracks that fit this theme. What is yours?

Redemption is just one emotion

Is there music that you feel a pure emotional draw to. Think of this premise….Music can and does affect everyday of your life, whether directly in to your mind by choice, or subliminally in every walk of life. Music can be used positively to direct, cajole and alter your whole state of mind. In my forthcoming book ‘You cant hear the planes, If you live on the flightpath’…. I will seek to create an altered state of consciousness in which we can all use to strive and succeed.

Scare away the dark

I love Music, in case you haven’t guessed! I listen, I envelope in myself in the whole auditorium of sound. I stand by my statement that musicians, songwriters and composers are scientific geniuses. They can manipulate emotion and states of mind. You can have an entire mood or neural dimension re-routed by one piece of music. My playlist would be reminiscent of a never-ending unravelling scroll. I love words. I love literature. My love is amplified when words are put to music, Or when music transcends words. Occasionally I come across Music that dead stops me in my tracks. This afternoon being one such occasion. A track by Passenger entitled “scare away the dark” Everyone has a life of light and shade. Unfortunately in modern life ‘shade’ is a predominant force. Us mere mortals are delicate souls, whether you choose to accept or deny that within your own psyche. But you can climb or fall. That’s the only choice we all have in reality. That’s why this song struck such an emotional chord with me. I’ve added the lyrics below, even read on there own with your own poetic licence, they should evoke a reassuring punch of resilience. For us all there are better times ahead. The destination is unmeasurable. But if you open your eyes, cast aside your darkness and broach the possible outcome, then giving this a little listen will reinforce your spirit. I assure you.

Scare away the Dark – Passenger

Well, sing, sing at the top of your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Feel, feel like you still have a choice

If we all light up we can scare away the dark
We wish our weekdays away
Spend our weekends in bed
Drink ourselves stupid
And work ourselves dead
And all just because that’s what mom and dad said we should do

maxresdefaultWe should run through the forest
We should swim in the streams
We should laugh, we should cry,
We should love, we should dream
We should stare at the stars and not just the screens
You should hear what I’m saying and know what it means

To sing, sing at the top of your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

Well, we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter,
We wish we weren’t losers and liars and quitters
We want something more not just nasty and bitter
We want something real not just hash tags and Twitter

It’s the meaning of life and it’s streamed live on YouTube
But I bet Gangnam Style will still get more views
We’re scared of drowning, flying and shooters
But we’re all slowly dying in front of fucking computers

So sing, sing at the top of your voice,
Oh, love without fear in your heart.
Can you feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

The video is basically saying there is more a 9-5 mundane, repetitive job. But I’m sure the commercial appeal has sanitised this video. The lyrics and thoughts that lie beneath the veil of the video are truly inspirational. There is light. There is life. We just all have to find where it is. If you ever lose your way and are becoming dispirited. Use this song. Reinforce the positive pathways in your mind. If your interested in the technicalities of how music can change your world you can read more here.

Nerve Jangling Music

So why does the music move you? Why does music manipulate your neural system? How do artists and composers create nerve jangling music? Music and Songs are littered with generalized positive messages, and the euphoric rising and pounding of sound, and some of my personal favourites include “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” by Michael Franti and “Change gonna come” by Sam Cooke and classically “Mars” by Gustav Holst are filled with inspirational meanings and in the classical case, rumbling resonance. music move you, dance, msicThey can grab you and drag you upwards screaming, totally uplifting your mood. The messages and emotions that are embedded in such songs. plus the euphoria that comes with belting out these tunes, in your very own unique style – can motivate you to get up , stay up, and try again. Throw a little air guitaring and finger drumming or just dancing and just multiply the effect.

Need a pocket therapist?….So if your having a mood dip, take five….play it loud, sing it proud, let the music move you and your be back in the game before you know it!

Whenever the continual life struggle has you on the ropes, listening (preferably singing) to “My Way” or “That’s life” both sung at the top of your lungs can give you the power and motivation to renew and get some fresh perspective.

Let the music move you

So why does the music move you? For centuries music has been a constituent component for movement in dances, events, ceremonies and celebrations. milk1-CustomIt makes perfect sense! Rhythm perception alone accesses multiple areas of our brain, almost all of the same areas are used to process motor movements. Think of our biological blueprint and how constant and flowing rhythm is on a day to day basis. Heartbeats, breathing, stepping and arm swinging while we walk. All of these processes are without anything external being input, so when we add music with a resonate strong beat the structure and rhythm of potential movement is only heightened. Rhythm perception is not about individual beats, but about a pattern as a whole that becomes highly predictable instantaneously. Our bodies can synchronise to the rhythm, or in other words become as one with it, which helps prime, coherse and coordinate subsequent movements. We are literally biomechanically wired for music to move us!
