You are being given the opportunity to be the best you you can be, and to make changes in your life that reflect who you are heart and soul. Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground is a reminder of that opportunity. As the tune goes: “People keep on learnin’…Sleepers just stop sleepin’, Cause it won’t be too long, Oh no. I’m so glad that he let me try it again, Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin. I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then, Gonna keep on tryin’, Till I reach my highest ground… Whew! Till I reach my highest ground, No one’s gonna bring me down, Oh no. Till I reach my highest ground, Don’t let nobody bring you down.” A bit of back story, Higher Ground was written before Stevie Wonder was involved in a near-fatal accident in 1973 that left him in a coma. In an interview in The New York Times, he said: “something must have been telling me that something was going to happen to make me aware of a lot of things and to get myself together. This is like my second chance for life, to do something or to do more, and to value the fact that I am alive.” Higher Ground today is a reminder to do what you need to do to make changes in your life, to change your tune and create something positive and life-affirming no matter how many challenges you encounter or obstacles you face in the process of change.
Tune of the Day is a divinatory series here on this blog where I share some musical vibes. Music is a very powerful tool with numerous messages to be gleaned from a tune, whether it’s got vocals on it or it’s purely instrumentals. It also has massive healing benefits too.
Whether you have an ear for music or are simply looking for divination of a different medium altogether, music most certainly moves us and offers guidance. And just like with tarot, music will have different meanings to different readers or in this case listeners. With each Tune of the Day I provide a general overview of some of the messages I’ve got from the track, but of course you may listen to it and get different signs or symbols. Enjoy!
