”I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could always have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music” George Eliot English.
I have found profound truth in those words. Out of nowhere the words to a song will reach out and touch my heart, tears will flow sometimes and other times it will be laughter. Other times inspiration comes out of the words. The music moves the soul without words.
Music relaxes me and I find I’m much more able to receive the message as the defences are removed. Inspiration comes when the walls come down.
Music has the power to affect our moods . Our bodies respond to our moods. When we’re stressed or anxious (which is almost always deep in the throes of grief) soothing music helps calm the waves and can even lull us into a restful sleep.
When we’re in need of spiritual comfort, music from the gospels we grew up with can provide just the relief we need. When we’re in need of courage, when we’re not brave but we want to be, songs about power and determination can open up a part of us we never knew was there.
Begin your own music collection or add to it and experience it’s healing powers. Whether your taste runs to rock’n roll, gospel (I listen to Elvis’ Gospel songs every morning) the blues, country, hip hop or classical, choose music with messages of survival love, courage, faith and beating the odds
Find ONE special song that makes you feel powerful and make it your theme song and listen to it every day. Music is a divine gift. Unwrap the gift and use it. I have found it so many times healed me in places I didn’t know at the time needed some attention and healing time.
ENJOY, RELAX, LET GO and HEAL.
