Why am I in the Church Choir? What does it mean to me?
What keeps me coming back?
Mile Hi Church has been my spiritual home since 1996. Over the course of the last two decades I have made some wonderful friendships. This past year a new client of mine and I were having coffee and we were talking about the church. She mentioned she was in the choir and my heart just opened up as I felt a sudden connection to my new singing client. I was almost giddy as I talked about my past days of singing and dancing in the swing choir, singing the national anthem for volleyball, and how I loved to sing karaoke but lacked talented partners. She mentioned they were short on strong tenors and that she would talk to the choir director and see if there was any way they could let me audition, despite the fact that auditions were months ago. I smiled and said that would be wonderful. I would do a treatment immediately. Divine spirit was with me as I was accepted into the choir with open hearts and arms. Every Thursday we rehearse in the sanctuary and every Thursday I am greeted with love. I knew that this group was my new family of friends.
It is important to be a part of a community of like minded individuals. One of the ways to improve yourself is to surround yourself with supportive, loving individuals & friends. I am a spiritual magnet who is attracting or repelling all of the time. The friends at Mile Hi Church are attracted to my energy and I love sharing it with them. My personal goal in life is to positively affect everyone’s live I touch. If I can do that through the gift of song, more power to me. In a deep meditation one of my spiritual guides told me that singing has the power to heal and activated my throat chakra. My puppy was hit by a car a few months ago and almost died. I was told to sing to her every day. So I did and now she is happy, healthy and alive. So I thought if this singing could heal my dog then it could certainly work on people. Interestingly enough, I actually have heard members of the congregation say they have felt healed after hearing the choir perform.
This was an assignment from my choir director. As a writer I decided to write a blog (AaronsAfterThoughts.com) to share it with all my friends. I am sure there are some people who are wondering why all of the sudden I am singing in the choir.
