Soul Spaces 116 – Sound
Sound can be a great tool for healing, centering, and uplifting our spirits.
I bet you’ve experienced the magic of music and sound many times, whether listening to your favorite pop artist, friend, choir, or sacred music. Even the scientists are getting into the music game! They’re researching and demonstrating how music can impact our mind, body, and health. Music therapy is a growing field of using sound and music to aid in the healing of patients. This Get Healthy article highlights 10 Benefits of Music like relieving stress, improving memory, and reducing pain.
Recently I’ve discovered the music of Mei-lan Maurits. Her music videos shine with love and soul. I listen to them as a tool for centering in my heart and being. They remind me to create sacred spaces in my life. Time to rest in well-being, the ultimate truth of our existence. I imagine they would be good for meditating too, but I haven’t tried that yet.
Here is one video I’ve been enjoying.
Do you have certain music that uplifts your spirit and energy?
Sometimes it’s pop music that I grew up with like the Beatles and Beach Boys. Other times, it’s music like Mei-lan’s to remind me to come back home to my center.
May you make time for your soul this week, maybe with some special music or simply the sounds of silence.
Peace out, Brad
