Voltaire said, “The ear is the avenue to the heart.”
The right kind of music (sedative for example) has numerous and quite phenomenal benefits. It reduces chronic pain, releases endorphins and immune-boosting hormones, decreases muscle tension, brings out the dancing queen, improves childhood development and serves as a great distractor! It’s even being used in hospitals to reduce the need for meds.
It’s tempo over style, not just the sounds but the vibrations.
How do you feel when you hear traffic, people fighting, or glass breaking compared to the sounds of waves crashing, birds chirping or your favorite song? Sound healing alters consciousness.
Symphony conductors (more than any other group of people) are known to live much longer, healthier lives. They create harmonies with super rejuvenating powers on a daily basis! Those alpha-state inducing rhythms sustain inner peace. Plus, the upper body workout of conducting expands the chest and lungs and keeps the heart pumping strong.
Einstein himself says that the reason he was so smart is because he played the violin.
“Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.” -Plato
Every culture on earth has music. Even whales, bees and wolves sing! And crickets have ‘ears’ in their knees! The right kind of music can produce more milk from cows and more eggs from hens. Acid rock makes plants wither and die. But classical music helps them grow!
Listening to music while eating may actually make the food taste better, too!
Can you hear me now? Did you know there’s fluid in our ears vital for balance? When our bodies shift, it sends a message to the brain about our positioning and prevents us from falling over! Sound energy travels into our ears and through the shell-shaped cochlea, where 20,000 hair-like nerve cells transmit info, from mechanical vibrations to electrical signals, to your brain. How cool!
“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain!” -Bob Marley
