Music - Spiritual Therapy


Music - Historically Healing
A study of the history of music is an affirmation of its power through the ages from the tumbling down of the walls of strongly built biblical city of Jericho, a city destroyed by the resounding force of blowing trumpets accompanied by shouts of a mighty army of men to legends about how the great Egyptians used sound to build and move the Great Pyramids to the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine in China, covering the curative ability of music / sound healing. The Egyptian Book of the Dead has references to Sound Healing while a Chinese proverb declares: “Music comes from the heart of the human being.” If that is the case, there are powerful de-stressing elements in the making of music or listening to music, a fact that is corroborated by memories of turning on music when the trials and travails of everyday life prove too much of a strain. “You are the music while the music lasts.” T. S. Eliot

Music - Therapeutic Overtones
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” Maya Angelou. If music has the power to shatter and destroy cities, build and move pyramids, it is but a forgone conclusion that it can heal the body, mind, emotions and the spirit. And, no one was more aware of the power of music than the ancients who used various chants, hymns and musical sounds to reduce stress, cure ailments, music therapy for physiological and psycho-social illnesses, effective therapy with sufficient research evidence that it cures.

Music is the shorthand of emotion.” Leo Tolstoy. Studies conducted by various organisations on the therapeutic value of music affirm that music therapy is extremely beneficial for pregnant women and children. The angst of adolescent years eases while patients suffering from depression experience a positive lifting of spirits simply by listening to the soothing strains of music. A release for emotions and feelings, it interacts with the mind compelling it to relax and unwind. “Who hears music feels his solitude peopled at once.” Robert Browning.

If that is what you are sorely in need of, a word of advice from
Dr. Julie Trudeau, go out and buy a CD of these divinely inspired musical chants i.e. Gregorian Chants, chants that will transport you into the throes of spiritual ecstasy!
