12 Days of Winter Meditations: Day 9

Music: Singing

The holidays are always a time of music, concerts, singing. By now, the Christmas carols have been put away, but the echo of their spirit lingers. The power of song is the power to put emotions into form. What is the song of your soul? Listen to something new. Take time to enjoy the music. Sing, even if it's off-key. The vibrations that reverberate through your whole body will make your soul come alive.
