Music Effects Us on a Cellular Level
Why does music have the power to move us in ways that run deep into our conscious being, to ring an emotion that touches our every sensory fibre and literally strikes a chord within our inner most soul entity?
“Music is the universal language of the world, it is an expression of the universe. Its powerful vibrations, rhythms, sounds and harmonies can effect humans and other sentient beings on a molecular level, therefore changing one’s moods and emotions.”
It touches our hearts in ways that cannot be explained, it can unite people in a way that connects them on a deeper level, it can create a feeling when put together with visual images.
It can be used to associate a particular time, event, milestone or memory in one’s life – so powerful that the same emotion that was unleashed when the song was first heard, can be relived as if it is happening again.
Therefore the term MUSIC THERAPY can be used a buzzword that is over-played. Not only can it set the scene for a play, a movie or epic piece of art. But also the concept of producing, playing and singing music is therapeutic to one”s well being. One’s inner most emotion can be expressed through a piece of music, both lyrically and through a melody. Epic instrumental or classical music is more emotional than music with lyrics since it enables the listener to associate emotions, feelings and memories with a particular song – therefore making it even more personal. A bond is truly made between the creator and the listener of the piece of music. The delivery mechanism is just as powerful as the music itself in which it is played, aired, presented on stage, in person, in a studio, in a stadium or via the radio or on one’s personal sound device.
The Sony Walkman revolutionized music in a way that one could listen to it in private, as needed, in any surrounding, to past the time, to help get through a break up, to help get through exams and more. It became an instrumental part of our being, our inner soul entity that we are – and then on to CDs, MP3 players and of course the infamous iPod.
7 Notes of Music for 7 Chakras
Did you know that each of the 7 notes in music create harmonic balance to the 7 chakras (your endocrine glands and energy centres) in your body.
This means that music can literally “move” you or “change” your moods, cellular structure and overall healthy well being.
The power of music has the ability to heal people that are in distress, relieve pain to those suffering from a physical ailment and much more.
Music’s healing power over the body has also attracted attention from scientists who aim to test this ancient wisdom. A growing body of research supports the claim that music can alleviate physical pain. Studies have shown music to be an effective pain reliever, both on its own and as an addition in connection with other types of therapy.
