Are You Playing the Music of Your Life?
By Debbie Friedman
What we listen to is vital to the life we are creating. Many people feel overwhelmed with the negative, critical voices in their heads, people around them who are complaining or gossiping, or some particular event that has let them down. While we may not have control over all the circumstances of our lives, we can choose what we pay attention to and what we surround ourselves with. What we choose to listen to can literally make a world of difference.
Music is made for manifesting. This is, in fact, the idea of music therapy. As you hear the beginning notes of a favorite song, reminding you of a particular time in your life when you were full of love, hope, strength, accomplishment, or freedom, your mind automatically recreates a vision of that time, your body responds on a cellular level, and your emotions transform your experience in the moment. Instantaneous. Automatic. Effortless.
For fun and for free.
I've talked often about vibrations. It's important to emphasize that scientific research and studies have now documented the effects of music on our bodies, lives, and beliefs. As we raise our spirits we are literally raising our vibration. And the level we vibrate at is what we vibrate to. What we vibrate to is what we will attract into our lives. Like attracts like. This is where music therapy comes in to have a powerful, positive effect in every area of our lives.
In Power vs. Force Dr. David Hawkins explains the significance of higher and lower "attractor fields", or vibrations, and how we all can effectively raise our power to attract to us positive experiences in life. By raising our vibration, we move into a realm that allows us to use our natural powers, rather than relying on the need to try to "force life to happen. In his 29-year study, Dr. Hawkins demonstrated that the human body becomes stronger or weaker depending on a person's mental state, reflected by their vibration. As he writes, "Music is in some ways the most subtle of the arts, for it's the least concrete. However, in bypassing left-brain rationality to appeal directly to our subconscious right-brain sense of pattern, it's at the same time the most visceral and emotional. It also provides the easiest example of how attractor patterns order reality".
Dr. Masaru Emoto has spent years documenting the effect of what we think, say, and do on the crystalline structure of water molecules. Positive emotions create beautiful crystals while negative emotions create amorphous blobs that resemble polluted water. Dr. Emoto has studied the effects of music on the quality of water molecules and found that "Amazing Grace is one of the songs that create the most beautiful crystalline structures. In contrast, heavy metal and rap music creates the blobs that are associated with polluted bodies of water. (For more information on Dr. Emoto and his work, visit www.hado.net.)
Water is the "molecule of life". Considering we human beings are approximately 75% water, this research is incredibly relevant. Do you choose to have polluted water or pristine crystals running through your veins?
Craig White has created a series of CDs that are used for Music Therapy. Studied by the Mayo Clinic, his works are now being used in major healthcare chains in California because they have been shown to increase healing rates and reduce post-surgical recovery times.
In the creative realm, you have the right and the responsibility to make conscious choices that will support you in living the life of your dreams. Choose powerfully and positively to vibrate at a level that will attract to you all that is rich, loving, joyful, abundant, healthy, and fun with great ease and flow!
Give yourself the gift of music therapy to create the life you love to live!
YOU deserve it!
