Music’s Amazing Power to Transform Your Life
Take a Music Bath…
“Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes
Masaru Emoto, a creative and visionary Japanese researcher, observed that water reacts positively or negatively to different external stimuli — including music. This led him and his colleagues to conduct experiments to see how such stimuli affect the molecular structure of water.
In specific experiments, he placed glass bottles containing untreated, distilled water between two speakers playing various kinds of music for several hours. He then froze the waters and photographed the molecules using a special microscopic camera. He found that the type of music the water was exposed to influenced the resulting molecular structure of the water.
Water that was exposed to classical music caused the formation of beautiful, snowflake-like crystalline structures while water exposed to music with frenetic vibrations, such as heavy metal music, resulted in distorted and randomly formed crystalline structures.
Since water comprises over 70% of the average adult human body, it was surmised that music has the ability to alter the structure of molecules in the body, thereby healing and transforming the body.
The curative power of music has given birth to a global community of registered music therapists, who utilize music to soothe, stimulate and support the development or recovery of abilities lost to illness or injury.
A research study conducted at the Cognitive Brain Research Unit of the University of Helsinki in Finland found that the recovery rate of stroke victims who listened to music for one hour a day or more was significantly faster than those who didn’t listen to music. Memories and fluency of speech improved more rapidly … music listeners appeared to have a more cheerful disposition and focused attention … their ability to control and perform mental operations and resolve conflicts improved by 17% — and verbal memory improved by 60% in music listeners.
Neuroscientists are convinced that music can help rewire a brain affected by illness or injury, but they’re still trying to uncover the scientific basis for music’s healing powers. What they do know is …
… Music Literally Moves Within Us
Music travels through the brain’s auditory cortex directly to the limbic system, the part of the brain responsible for emotional responses, hormonal secretions, motivation, pleasure, and pain.
Researchers are finding that music can be an effective remedy for those who suffer from various ailments.
* Music has been shown to unlock memories (at least temporarily) in Alzheimer’s patients who’ve lost their recollection of most details of their life.
* Music with rhythmic quality has been shown to help Parkinson’s Disease sufferers by activating the brain’s motor regions to restore the ability to walk.
* Music’s predictable beats have also been shown to initiate speech in those with speech impediments (such as stutterers) — and make their halting speech patterns disappear.
* Other afflictions that have responded to music therapy include autism, reading disabilities like dyslexia, and even impaired growth in premature babies.
One might wonder … if music has the ability to alter a molecule’s structure, unlock memories, cause disabilities to disappear, restore motor skills and improve brain functions, could it also … reduce stress and pain … banish illness … generate feelings of well-being … create the relationships you desire … accelerate your ability to achieve success and abundance … and enhance your spiritual growth?
The answer is yes!
Renowned composer Paul Hoffman and Paul Scheele of Learning Strategies, have created music called Sonic Access, which immediately transforms your brain state. Electroencephalograph (EEG) studies show that the brain waves of people who listen to the specially created audio template of Sonic Access instantly change! Beta spikes drastically diminish and alpha waves significantly increase. Brain wave patterns rich in alpha waves create the preferred state for personal development and long-lasting change.
Now, it’s possible to harness music’s amazing power to positively affect your physical, emotional, and mental well-being — and transform every area of your life!
