Native American flute music is a sound of the heart, the breath, the spirit – and it’s interpretation of the moment.
Many times while teaching or performing for great audiences, my wife Terri and I tell the story of the flute as it had been taught to us by our Native elders.
The basis of this story is that all people seek a higher understanding of themselves — an understanding of what, when, and why they are here.
That may have been a question that you posed to yourself. Are you looking for answers to:
- What is my purpose?
- When will I know how to prepare for it?
- And, why is this important to filling in missing pieces of my life?
Now, you’re probably wondering…what does this have to do with Native American flute music being effective for natural stress release? Let’s just say it was the birth of a song that started the journey of the lifetime that is mine today.
Is That All There Is?
It was over 30 years ago, and I had reached the end of rope. In my eyes, I could not see an answer. It seemed like that evening the whole world had kind of come to this point.
“Is this what my life is about?” I asked myself. I was working 12 hours a day doing repairs, then going home, eating, watching TV, and getting up the next day just to start it all over again.
The despair – compounded by stress – was painfully effecting my sleep, my working habits, and my health. And I remember in the darkness of an old room, I looked for answers.
I saw none, but in the dim light I saw a flute resting on the shelf and waiting for the call of my breath.
And so, I lifted the flute to my lips, and in that moment a song was born — a song that spoke of the deep sadness of a life that felt unfulfilled, a life that could not see or feel the possibility of living in a world that always proposed freedom but instead gave pain.
It became this song, “The Calling Song” that guided me to a greater understanding of the meaning of hope.
Native American flute music is a powerful language, one that can touch your heart and soul and provide a vehicle that transcends all others. Music is the heart of a culture and a way of forging a bond that’s understood by all beings.
