The magic that music creates is unmistakable. We all ‘resonate’ with music in some form and there’s no denying how it can affect everything from our mood, memory, body responses to what we buy and even our energy levels. But what is it about music that is so special, that is so moving/healing? Music as a medium for communication works without need for logic, reason or intellect to be understood and is highly ‘felt’ or intuitive. Whether or not you ‘understand’ it intellectually (ie: lyrics, style, theory) music has an effect.

The real magic of music is that it can also help bring on this place of ‘non intellect’, where we connect to our inner self and even to others sharing the musical experience without needing anything else in common other than the music. In this place of connection, there is a sense of resting, heightened awareness and healing/alchemical change is possible. This can happen with peaceful as well as upbeat music and can be measured physiologically (heartbeat, breath rates begin to synchronize). No only that, the healing increases dramatically when we consciously intend to allow this connection/resting to happen. Intention heightens focus which increases the effectiveness of the healing flow of music.

So let the music play. And let yourself go in to it.
