Atmosphere – ‘Love Life’
“Now, how many times must you prove you’re an angel
How many more demons do you have to strangle
How much longer must you remain in this dream
Before I finally figure out if you’re insane or a genius“
The signature sound of Atmosphere is a momentarily paralyzing, in perfectly structured, ‘individually wrapped’ musical packages with potent lyrics expressed through a powerful mix of precise timing, commanding composition and discernible delivery.
‘Love Life’ had me in tears within 40 seconds the first time I heard it. The awe-inspiring rapidly ruthlesss and radically empowering lyrics of Atmosphere ignited a completely unexpected cry of contentment.
There were no emotional extremes playing a catalyst in the background, though I do have a readily available daily assortment of choices in cheerful, phobic, panicked or lonely.
It was the strength in severity and sincerity within the lyrics and delivery of this impactful Little Ditty just hit that magic musical place, that I suspect lies within the solar plexus.
An overwhelming appreciation was felt for this string of immaculately formed citings, simultaneously sewing the threads of life’s unavoidable tragedies through its unexpected joys.
Wondering what the solar plexus really refers to?
The solar plexus chakra, the energetic vortex of dynamism and willpower (its animal association is the ram), is charged with assisting one in comprehending his or her emotional life, accepting one’s unique place in the life stream, clarifying the dynamics of ego, self-esteem and self-love.
On a psycho-spiritual level, this chakra is deeply involved in the mechanics of: self-sufficiency, self-image, personal power, issues of responsibility, sense of security and safety. Dysfunction of the third chakra manifests, in part, as an inability to fully acquire and adequately sustain personal power.Only when it is open and balanced can one have a deeply fulfilling emotional life wherein one can be expansive, outgoing, and sociable, have a sense of belonging and fitting in and be able to experience the sweetness of being alive.
The solar plexus chakra is also a seat of intuitive functioning – the nucleus of our sense of subtle knowing, intent of being and gut instincts. Of course, having confidence in one’s gut instincts is largely dependent upon a sufficient level of self-esteem. Self-confidence underlies effective decision-making and crisis management and the ability to take reasonable risks and so healthy operations within this chakra are crucial for the elaboration of leadership qualities and adventurousness.
