Native American Flute Songs Lift Up My Soul…

by | Jan 13, 2024

The clear origins of the Native American Flute date back several thousand millennia to flutes made of bone, to petroglyphs, and oral history. Unclear “origins” involve the Spanish Conquest insofar as the Spanish stealing the bamboo flute from Asia, and then introducing it to the Five Civilized Tribes”

Flutes are the earliest known musical instruments. A number of flutes dating to about 40,000 to 35,000 years ago have been found in the Swabian Alb region of Germany. These flutes demonstrate that a developed musical tradition existed from the earliest period of modern human presence in Europe.[1]

Many years ago, during our travels to New Mexico, we listened to the Flute music of Native Americans. I listen now too, while writing about how this ancient music connects to my soul. In so many ways it is healing to my whole being, my mind and body.

I feel the natural flow of life and nature sailing together in song as one with the Universe. The Flute is like a magical portal. It takes me to a place where everything slows down. The Flute leads a symphony, orchestrating the music of the Cosmos.

When I listen closely to the flute in silence without interruption from earthly things, I feel God’s spirit. This is when the Heavens speak to me, void of earthly distractions.

It becomes nearly impossible to hear the symphony of life unless all your senses are open to life itself, not things. I feel the Flute music touch my soul deeply. I feel the spirits too, as the Flute’s symphony of life speaks to my soul in God’s language.

God’s language is not man’s language, I believe now. Do not wait to hear God from words and things invented by man. Instead, listen to the Universe where God’s energy flows to us through the Flute’s spiritual songs.

In this moment, I’m sitting in some far off place listening to the Flute conduct a symphony deep in my soul. I feel something never felt before. It is peace and freedom at a safe distance from the things of mankind.

I know not from, or of things, but from listening to the Universe, where life begins and ends. Flute music truly sends me to the Gates of Heaven in this moment of peace.
