Music is a Vibration

“If Music be the Food of Love Play on” from Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare

I am sure that a lot of you are aware of the above saying and many enjoy listening to music for different reasons.

Have you ever thought about the reasons you listen to music and the affects the different styles have on you?

Music is sound and sound is energy and vibration. We are also a vibration.

Sound can hurt and sound can heal.

Think about the music you hear, depending on your mood, your frame of mind, what is going on in your life; different types of music affect you in differing ways.

For most when you are trying to relax, you prefer to listen to calming, gentle music which may include the sounds of nature, rather than more lively music such as rock or a rousing piece of classical music.

If you enjoy doing the housework to music, many will choose something lively to move along too, keep the energy up.

Then there are other pieces of music that really do not resonate with you, they feel as if they are grating on your nerves, disrupting your energy.

As a complementary therapist I play music for my clients, very occasionally someone prefers the silence, it is always what feels right for you at the time, any time.

For me personally I have a CD that I play as I go to sleep at night and a different one for when I give myself a Reiki session, others that I use for doing the housework and ironing.

I suggest choosing the music that helps lift you, whether that is to relax by or to energise you, to calm you or motivate you and whenever you can avoid the music that agitates you.

The vibration of sound affects your vibration, calming it, agitating it or energising it. Always go with what feels right for you at the point in time that you are listening to it.

Even if it is something that you have on in the background, not really taking any notice of it, it is affecting your energy. Suggestion choose the music you play to suit the way you wish to feel.

Remember all the sounds that surround you are affecting you, the right music can help to negate the more disruptive sound vibrations, keeping you more relaxed.

Just finally, I don’t know about Music being the Food of Love, but it can certainly be the Food of Life, nourishing us in so many ways.
