Positive Pause – 18th April 2016 – The Orchestra of Your Mind
Recently I spent a lovely evening with my mother and her friend at the National Concert Hall. Orchestra of your Mind
The music was by Rachmaninoff and featured his piano Concerto No 3 which is notorious for being one of the most difficult pieces of music to play in the world.
I was absolutely enthralled and absorbed not only by the music that I heard but also by the room, the musicians and in particular, the composer. He was a young man who conducted his orchestra with incredible passion, precision and love.
Think of your subconscious mind with its numerous emotions, feelings and thoughts as an orchestra and then consider for a moment that the conductor represents consciousness. By bringing conscious awareness to yourself you are, in a sense, conducting your own mind and choosing which parts of you are the best to focus on, which parts create beauty and which parts allow you to reach your optimum health and well-being.
This week make time to listen to Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No.3 and allow yourself to escape into the magic and drama of his music.
