Music Therapy: A Quest for Spiritual & Physical Harmony

More and more scientific studies are proving that music is beneficial as long as you are listening to the right kind of notes. British Medical Journal conducted a study that showed how hard rock and heavy metal digital music can do incurable damage to the lungs. In another study
reported by Insight Magazine, physicist Dr. Harvey Bird (Fairleigh Dickinson University) and neurobiologist Dr. Gervasia Schreckenberg (Georgian Court College) experimented on the effect of music on animals. The three groups of mice used were each exposed to either voodoo music, Strauss Waltzes or plain silence. Music was played at low levels to ensure loud volume did not spoil the experiment. The mice were trained to run through a maze to find their food while listening to the music. The mice listening to voodoo music had great difficulty in finding their food, it either went bad or they were hopelessly lost. The other two groups faced no problems and found their food easily with the mice listening to Waltz music doing slightly better. All three groups were given 3-week break of silence, but the listeners of voodoo music continued to get lost while the others made their way back easily and found the food without any problems.

The experiment ended with a comparison and a check of the mice brains. The rock / voodoo group did not fair well, there was excessive branching of neuronal dentrites and significant increases in mRNA. Dr.Schreckenberg, the neurobiologist explains: "We believe that the mice were trying to compensate for this constant bombardment of disharmonic noise. They were struggling against the chaos. If more connections among the neurons had been made, it would have been a good thing. But instead there were no more connections, just wild growth of the neurons. As a result of the exposure to the disharmonic sounds, we believe there was less capacity for memory in the exposed mice."

In the words of a high school student who conducted a similar experiment: "I had to cut my project short because all the hard-rock mice killed each other. None of the classical mice did that at all. "

Tracing the roots of rock music one begins with Big Band and Jazz, acouple more steps and there is New Orleans and Haiti, and ultimately back to the voodoo beat, the drum beat of Africa. Why is the music so debilitating. Because discordant music vibrations and beats create friction as energy from sound vibrations pass through the seven chakras or energy centres of our bodies i.e. crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, soul and base of our spine. If harmonious music sound vibrational energy passes through our charkas we end up physically healthy, emotionally happy, mentally at peace and spiritually in tune with the music of the Cosmos or the spheres.

So powerful is the sound of music that even water is affected by song lyrics and musical tones. Subjecting water and water crystals to different sounds and swear words, Masaru Emoto found normal water turned to intricate crystal patterns of pure waster when prayed over or when classical music was played. Negative thoughts; swear words like Hitler and discordant music turned normal water into an unhealthy hue.

Beautiful thoughts and sounds make beautiful patterns. Many enlightened thinkers compare each soul to a crystal. We have unique patterns, colours and frequencies that make up our spiritual body. The spiritually inclined understand these principles and knew about sounds and music that help mankind connect with his divine potential and with God. Aristotle said: "Emotions of any kind are produced by melody and rhythm; therefore, by music a man becomes accustomed to feeling the right emotions; music has thus the power to form character, and the various kinds of music based on the various modes, may be distinguished by their effects on character, for example, working in the direction of melancholy, another of effeminacy; one encouraging abandonment, another self-control, another enthusiasm, and so on through the series."

Dr. Julie Trudeau, a trained therapist can help you attain physical well being and attain your spiritual goal by listening to her compilation of sound vibrations. Play a track of her digital music while you say a prayer or chant mantras, meditate to calm and attune you to the subtle vibrations of the spirit.
