I have loved music all my life. I grew up singing. My parents used to teach us the lyrics to their favorite songs by the Beatles, John Denver, Kenny Rogers, The Mamas and the Papas, Peter, Paul and Mary and many more.
We sang in the car, everywhere we went. I look back on it and realize that they were geniuses, the singing kept us busy and cut down on fighting and boredom. It also taught me a deep love for music. I have always used music as a coping tool. There are certain songs that I fall back on when I am sad, frustrated, anxious or even bored. I sang in church, learned to play the clarinet and piano and sang as well as played the clarinet in Junior High, High School and college. I thought for a long time that I would end up in a career in music, and was a music major in my first 2 years of college. Life took me in a different direction, and even though I didn’t end up in music as a career I still use it as a way to heal myself.
Music is vibration. Our energy bodies are also vibration. We can use the vibration of music to balance our energy bodies. You probably already do it, without realizing why it is happening. Our energy bodies vibrate at a variable rate. We move up and down based on lots of factors. We have the ability to sync up to a fixed vibration. Music is a fixed vibration. When you are listening to something that vibrates differently than you, you will sync up to it. Your vibration does not affect the music, but the music does affect you. This can be a positive or negative thing. We all have different taste in music. Something that really feeds my soul may feel like nails on a chalkboard to you. I love classical music because I am a classically trained musician. Some people just can’t connect with classical music. I am not a fan of heavy metal music, but have known many people who love it and feel energized by it. It does not matter what you like, just remember to use it for your benefit.
