Hildegard von Bingen was born about 1000 years ago. She was sickly and had “visions.”

Based on her drawings and writing, a few scholars now believe she had migraines. Looks like in an environment where auras were interpreted as mystical visions, she did pretty well, becoming

These visions inspired much of what she created, including her music. I often hallucinate music that sounds very much like this during my auras.
