Can you experience love, anger, passion, or peacefulness through music?
Music is a vibration that makes the world go around.
Music would have a powerful punch on your emotions, especially if you shared a song with your loved one. Songs can bring old memories back, and therefore you experience some kind of nostalgia with different emotions attached to a particular song. As you listen to a happy or sad song, you will get the same response in your body. If you are in a blissful state of mind, you will resort to music that is uplifting and playful. If you want to relax or link with your body, you will listen to more calm, relaxed songs for your spirit. And when you are sad or heartbroken, you will tend to listen to…you know, the song you can connect to, to make the pain go away, and maybe shed a few tears.
But why am I writing this post? Because I want to share my experience with taught processes that are correlated to certain rhythms and lyrics. I believe that every song has a message, and I think that everyone has some type of music they just love and forget about the stress in their life. Music can be a great way to deal with tension, as it puts our focus away from the problems. When we enjoy tones, we get the release of hormones of happiness; dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. It is also shown that music can have a healing effect on the body. Binaural beats can help with sleep, increase focus and concentration, reduce anxiety, and promote creativity. It can also help with managing pain, psychical, or emotional. It is worth trying listening to binaural beats, as it is entirely free and accessible to anyone, with the power of the internet.
As I got older, my preferences changed, but I never forgot about the songs from my childhood. When I find some of the old songs I used to listen to, I can almost perceive how I felt back then. Food can have the same effect as particular tastes get stored in our brain, and when we eat something traditional to our family, we can relive those moments. Music also leaves a memory of consecutive beats and text. Myself… I always forget the lyrics, but I never forget how the song vibrates and when the pitch is higher or more profound. Dancing this way can be very fun when you don’t forget how music wobbles.
Music for fitness
Music is also a powerful tool for motivation. When you listen to a song with a persuasive tone, you can change in an instant and go from zero to a hero. Many times I have used influential and impactful music for my big lifts in the gym. It excites me up for a respectful amount of time, and when I get in the zone, all weights are moving. Even a strong man Eddie Hall, which has a world record in deadlift ( half a ton or 500kg), used psychotherapy to be able to deadlift the weight. Backstage, before the lift, he listened to motivational words to basically walk on water. This way, he created the best environment for his mind and to be 100% in tune with his body. Everybody was skeptical about human beings deadlifting half a ton, but Eddie Hall proved everyone wrong. I am not saying music takes all the credit for his deadlift, but it sure did enhance him for the crucial moment. With a combination of genes, work ethic, and mind, he was able to do so.
Vibration for everyone
The whole universe is one big DJ. It came with a big bang and left a buzz (om) inside our heads. If you sit in a quiet place, you will know what I am referring to as a buzz or an om. You can say om is a vibration of energy. Everything has a wave of vibration; therefore, everything is music. Even our body is a universe on its own, vibrating on specific frequencies. When you focus on the sound of om, you will become peaceful. At first, it can drive you crazy, but as you start being connected to the vibration, you will eventually become pleasant and restful. A great way to do this is while you practice meditation. Make yourself in tune with your body and scatter stress out of your life. The best way is that you don’t need anything—just your own body.
Make the mind work for you, not against you, and you will succeed in life.
