We Are All Vibration

Dear Cha,

It's hard for me to think about and recall your grandpa Alan (my father) all the time. It sounds a bit sad, I know.

But after someone dies and time moves on, their memory becomes more and more faint. There are however helpful techniques we can apply to help remember our loved ones and keep honouring their memory, which keeps them close to our heart.

I want to tell you a little story; your grandpa's favourite genre of music was jazz, especially Brazillian jazz. Grandpa Alan's favourite artist was Djavan, he loved Djavan's music, it was almost a religious experience for him. Music was grandpa Alan's religion.

Each year grandpa Alan travelled to St. Barths with Aza (your grandma) and friends, and a second time per year with me and Auntie Ali (my sister). This was the routine each year for many years, it was a large part of my childhood and I remember it well.

Djavan's music always blessed us well, it was the theme music of our vacations, grandpa Alan kept it on heavy rotation constantly.

Music is vibration, we are vibration, there is no separation from us and what we listen do. Music gets into our pores and our soul and it almost defines who we are. We resonate with different forms of music just like we resonate with different people. 

A few years ago in Pai I felt inspired to download the entire discography of Djavan, which as it turns out is quite large! The man has a tremendous amount of albums to his name. Where did this urge come from? I have no idea, nor do I claim to understand how these things work. Was it a message from grandpa Alan in the spirit world? Are you grandpa Alan reincarnated? We are all interconnected, but just how remains a mystery, it's part of life.

I was working my way through the albums, and I decided that I was enjoying Djavan's live concert album most. So there I was driving along, unassumingly, heading towards home on the hot spring road (I recall this memory crystal clear). Then all of a sudden Djavan's song 'Se' came on and all the hair on my arms stood up! It was like grandpa Alan was right there in the car with me, inside the car and inside my heart, the experience brought me to tears. It was one of the most genuine, heart-felt experiences I've had since my father has passed away.

The lesson I learned from it all, which was completely intuitive, is that we are all vibration. When we die, even if we reincarnate, the essence of our last life still lingers, sort of in an 'all time is happening at once' sort of way. Our essence never dies, there is no death.

We can always honour, respect and recall the love we have for our loved ones, one such way to do this is through music. So always pay attention to what the people you care about are listening to, and pay special attention to what you yourself listen to, because vibrations influence all that we do.

Big love lil man, now I leave you with the Djavan song 'Se' that touched me so deeply that day, as well as 'Oceano' which is just as amazing and ethereal.

Love runs the Universe, love is the Universe. From love we are born, to love we return. See only love.
