Healing Music - From Ambience to Pivotal Tool
One thing often overlooked by healers is some good healing music. One might say that there's something in common between healing work and your favorite summer blockbuster.
Hear me out here. Energy healing isn't something which is simply "done to" somebody. As healers, we help people heal themselves. To do that, we enlist their minds and spirits. Even at the simplest level, using music is a good idea.
Think about the last time you went to a movie and was really, really impressed. Unless you're an aficionado of truly silent movies, the underlying score helped create the experience. In the best made movies, you don't even realize that the music it's there; it's just woven into the experience.
Music does a couple of different things. Firstly, it presents "chewing gum" for the mind. As long as someone's mind can't escape the day-to-day grind, they'll never let go enough for the healing to work properly. You're meditating and keeping clear and calm is getting pretty easy for you, but we want to make things easy as possible for the healing recipient as well.
Along the same lines, music is best used to elicit emotion. Healing music moves us and allows us to soar to dizzying heights, to mourn and let go that which is lost, to energize and set determination for the times to come. Good healing therapy music is be used to aid the process by conveying the right messages.
Moving beyond that, some music is in itself rather healing. Commonly cited examples are often rather tonal in nature; that is to say that they are pretty even, relaxing in nature. Aums, and the sounds of singing bowls are very commonly used for their healing properties. Some also use music tailored to each major chakra when working to clear up issues of that particular chakra.
Getting started with healing music.
One general rule I'd suggest on music for healing in just about every application is this: No recognizable lyrics. Nothing in a language known to the recipient. Recognizable words will only give them something to wind up about. Remember: we want to help them relax and let go.
Aside from that one rule, you'll want to tailor the music to the situation. Often, a challenging, fast-paced beat will actually help. Basically, anything you could imagine meditating to would make a candidate.
There's no point stressing out about music. That creates its own problem. It's about the result, not the ingredients. However, if you give it a try, you may find that the right healing music can make a huge difference.
