How The Mainstream Music You Listen To Affects The Frequency and Vibration Of Your Life’s Experiences
By: Chris Wilusz
What musical artists make you feel alive? Which ones inspire you into greatness?
For me, all I have to do is play some Bob Marley in the morning and instantly, my day is set on the highest vibration possible.
The Universe and everything in it is comprised of three main ingredients – Energy, Frequency, and Vibration. Combined, they are the building blocks to consciousness and life itself.
The level or form of consciousness you are at present is directly related to the level of each of these three ingredients.

People are often caught day dreaming. Our minds drift off to places we would rather be than here. People we would rather be with than the ones we are with now. Eating and drinking things that we desire more than what we currently have. Have we ever stopped to wonder what is greater, our reality or our dreams? The prophet -Salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam- answers this question for us in describing jannah: “In it is what no eye has seen, no ear has heard of, nor has any mind imagined.” The reality of paradise is greater than anything we can imagine or dream of in this life. Paradise is the ultimate dream. Make it your driving force and motivation. As for this life it is just a means of making your dreams a reality. You may not have everything you dream of in this life, but if you work hard enough Allah guarantees all of your dreams and fantasies to come true in the next. May Allah make us from the inhabitants of al-firdaws without any hisab. Ameen.”

“I’m afraid to have a son.”
As I stood at the place where 18-year-old Michael Brown took his last breath, shot six times by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, despite being unarmed, these were the words said by a young African-American woman.
“I’m afraid to birth a son who could possibly be a victim of police brutality.”
As she spoke, tears streamed down her face. All I could do was hug her. I couldn’t comfort her by saying that she doesn’t have to worry, because history doesn’t show that. According to a study conducted by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, an organization that promotes self-determination in our community, police officers, security guards or self-appointed vigilantes killed at least 313 African Americans in 2012.

We have been asked to address the topic of “Spirituality in Modern Civilization.” Such topics are typically chosen by professors who find such combinations of concepts catchy, flashy and even a little spicy. However, when I hear the term “modern civilization” bandied about, I often wonder what it really means. After all, did people in the past consider themselves backwards, out-of-date, ancient, or behind the times? Did they consider their time uncivilized, looking towards our era as one in which they would finally be “modern?” Was not the time of our Prophet (s) also a “modern” one for those who were blessed to live during it? I propose that “modernity” exists in every era, depending on the circumstances of the time, and thus can be applied equally to each of them as well.
