Tina Malia's song 'Shores of Avalon' has captured the hearts of many in the spiritual community. Not only is it a lovely song, beautifully sung, but the lyrics can bring deep feelings up to the surface to be processed. Even when that doesn't happen it invokes states of peace.
I'm going to get a little esoteric on you guys now - bare with me. Where do these feelings come from? They can seem almost like a memory of a state of being once embraced. Many people find themselves yearning for the place describe in this song. What the song evokes (from my perspective) is distant memories, like whispers in my consciousness, so subtle yet so powerful. They are both memories of death experience - what happens in the dying process and afterwards, and also a yearning for the '5th Density'. It makes me feel melancholic remembering a state of being that once was, and now seems in some ways far away. It is not a particularly sad melancholy though as I am able to touch this place inside and can access it in daily life, if not all the time.
Before we explore the song in more depth, let me just give a brief overview of what I mean by the 5th density. We all inhabit each of the 11 densities of existence simultaneously, although we will have our centre of consciousness in one of these densities (for those interested in scientific parallels see M-Theory). The first 5 are physical, emotional, lower mind, karmic, and higher mind (5th). The 5th density is a place of co-creation in harmony with all sentient life. When we die, we are often held in the 4th density (karma) until the law of attraction causes us to reincarnate, or if we have processed enough of our karma and spending a longer period between lifetimes, we may 'hang out' in the 5th density. If we are to move through the 4th density and centre ourselves in the 5th, we need to process all of our karma. For more on the 5th density and how we can experience it in everyday life, please see Openhand's article: Path between Worlds: Ascending into the Fifth Density
Shores of Avalon: what does it mean?
So, lets look at the lyrics so that I can explain what I mean - perhaps the song will activate something in you too!
So, I have given you my interpretation. The song has done wonders for me, and she has a wonderful voice which carries you through all the feelings that might come up.
Here's the song. I wonder what your experiences are from this song. Try not to analyse, at least not to straight away. It's best to let the feelings come through first to be processed. And if no deep feelings come up right now then that's fine too. You can simply bask in the peace that comes from listening.
I'd love to hear from you - your thoughts/feelings about the song, anything that comes up for you, or your own interpretation.
