YOUR LIFE A-Z:MUSIC
MUSIC is a powerful additive to change mood throughout your day. Think about Christmas MUSIC and how old favorites survive year after year. Some of the songs such as Hark the Herald the Angels Sing and Silent Night have the music re-written for better or worse from time to time, but the words remain the same. Christmas MUSIC can make you feel eager anticipation of the holiday season and all that comes with it. Or, Christmas Music can evoke sadness and fill you with a sense of dread. Not everyone loves Christmas or the music that comes with it. That is not a bad thing. It is all about personal choice. It is up to you to pay attention and change the MUSIC you are listening to if you don’t like it. MUSIC choice is important and I invite you to experiment with it for a week or two. Listen to something different than you usually do. Choose from classical, country, pop, new age and a variety of other MUSIC choices and notice how your mood shifts as you allow yourself to engage in the mystical power of MUSIC. Reflect on your early experiences with MUSIC. When did you first notice MUSIC and your likes and dislikes for certain MUSIC choices? Did someone special interest you in MUSIC? Did you discover it on your own? Or, are you still waiting to discover how MUSIC can help you heal and enjoy. MUSIC is a powerful additive, so experiment with adding it a variety of your day-to-day activities.
