I picked this song to open Psychic Tapestry's new Spiritual Tune Up Show. Or rather, it picked me. That's just how it works sometimes.
I never used to be a fan of cover songs, especially where the Beatles were concerned. Part of my music snobbery, I suppose.
All that has changed since I found my path, and found so often that the message was what was important, moreso than the conveyance.
So you can like this version by Johnny Cash, the original by John Lennon and the Beatles, the one that Chantal Kreviazuk recorded for the TV show Providence, or any of the other versions (including Bette Midler and Ozzy Osbourne).
Or you can like them all.
Obviously, the song evokes the feeling of nostalgia, and I always like to say that, while there's nothing wrong with remembering your past, you don't want to unpack and live there. Everything that has happened to you, and everyone you've known, have all been a part of who you are today (and who you will be tomorrow, with all your new experiences added to the mix).
But remembering those we've known and loved is a beautiful thing. And in that, you can find hope and healing, and even strength. It's only when we get the idea that things were better and life was easier, when we wish we could go back, that it starts to weigh us down.
Be grateful for what has been. Send love to those you've known. And carry the best of it all with you.
I've posted Johnny Cash's version of the song below. There's not much to see in the video, just the album cover, but his version is so loving and so personal, I hope that you'll give it a listen. I often find listening to the music helps clarify the messages.
Spirits and Angels love music, and love to give us messages through music. This song comes from my Psychic Jukebox, which has over twenty thousand songs in it. I set it to play randomly, and ask my guides and angels to give me the song that was the message that was needed.
I also use my Psychic Jukebox in the readings on Psychic Tapestry's Love Show, heard on Blog Talk Radio every Friday at 5:00pm (Pacific) and on our new Spiritual Tune Up Show, which is on Blog Talk Radio every Wednesday at 5:00pm (Pacific). And I use it in my readings at Myztic Isle on Mondays (12:00pm to 5:00pm)! You can get directions or make an appointment by visiting Myztic Isle's website RIGHT HERE!
