Music Therapy

No, the way to personal harmony must come from a very specific kind of music. Not all music relaxes, you must personally feel more relaxed, your breathing must become slower and deeper for music to have a relaxing effect on you.

According to composer and music researcher Stephen Halpern Ph.D., “Music is not all that meets the ear. If you were to have earplugs in your ears, you cold still ‘feel the music'” he explains. In the living room, right next to the bathroom, I have beautiful classical or new age music playing softly.

If you can get yourself focused on it by either sitting still or lying down and really soak it in, in order to truly enjoy the music it is best.

Music, they say, soothes the savage beast and this is so true when we consider how music in its magical way works on our body rhythms bring harmony, literally, back into the body.

It is by our body responses that we can tell if music is truly relaxing us or not.

Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him. 1 Samuel 16:23(KJV).

I realize that there are times when you just can’t do this and just listening while going about your work is better than nothing, but it will not have the same effect as actually absorbing yourself in it.

A story is told in the Bible of a King named Saul, who had an evil spirit that would torment him and make him feel terrible. It was suggested that they find someone who could play he harp and then the evil spirit would leave and King Saul would feel better. They searched and found a young shepherd boy named David and he was commissioned to play for Saul whenever the evil spirit came upon him.

Music, in my view, is the most powerful and influential therapy that you can provide yourself. It not only affects your soul, but your body and spirit.

In the living room, right next to the bathroom, I have beautiful classical or new age music playing softly. As it permeates the room, mixed with the scent of my bath and candles, I am in another world, totally relaxed without a care in the world.
