The Wonder of Music in Our Lives
Music can provide inspiration, relaxation and passion. Some people use music to set a mood. While others will have their favorite symphony playing while they study for exams. And let’s not forget dancing to your favorite song as a form of exercise or meditation! Yes music does inspire and provoke us to be who we are to the fullest of our abilities.
I imagine that music plays many roles in your life as it does in mine. It allows others to have a sense of who we are and what we believe. Consider the ways that music has influenced your life. Music has the power to shift our feelings from joy to sorrow in a split second. It can bring us back to memories we forgot we had or forward us to the world we have yet to create. Music has many purposes and abilities. It can be used for healing as both Don Campbell and Tom Kenyon do. They both have schools that teach ways of using one’s voice for healing. There are degrees in Music Therapy offered at many Universities. The drumbeat has been used for centuries by Native Indians to elevate shamans to other dimensions. And let us not forget the sheer entertainment that sitting at a opera or a jazz club brings us! Yes music is a very powerful source.
