The Healing Power of Music

Healing MusicThey say…”music soothes the savage beast”. For me, music moves me unlike any other art. It stirs emotion in a very healing way.


How does music affect you? What kinds of music do you enjoy? Have you ever realized that we gravitate towards different music depending on our day or even our mood?


I happen to love classical music – particularly Chopin. A Chopin nocturne or sonata fills me with a passion that reaches deep into my soul. I also like the music of the 80’s which stirs happy memories. There is nothing more fun than turning the volume up and dancing away to a favorite tune – which I usually do when I am home alone!


Music can also heal. Music can quiet stressful feelings and slow down a racing heartbeat. It can create feelings of hope and love. Music is a gateway to the heart and soul.

    This is so true! Music can heal the mind most of the time. I love listening to soft Spanish guitar or easy listening music like Nora Jones. Our senses have a lot to do with our feelings and emotions. You hear something calm and peaceful, so you become calm and peaceful. Thank you, Gerri, for pointing this out!
