I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who is studying to become a doctor. We have had numerous conversations about how music and frequencies affect our physiology and he has a great interest in discovering more studies and information that supports the scientific approach. He showed me an article that he had found that talked about how music was found to actually increase the white matter in certain areas of our brain.
Last issue I introduced the technology of Biophoton imaging which actually records an image of the light being emitted from our cells. I would like to explore this phenomenon in more detail in this issue. Actually, in the last 3 to 4 decades there has been a virtual explosion of understanding and application of light therapy in the medical field. Not only is light being emitted from our cells, but we are discovering multiple ways in which we can use light to help heal our cells.
I have noted in a previous article that heart function was apparently “improved” by listening to the harp music. For this month’s article, I would like to present a couple of studies that have been presented in peer reviewed publications that appear to add some scientific credibility to that observation.
I would like for us to take a little break from all the studies and knowledge that we have been considering and take a more practical hands on – or shall we say ears on - approach to the subject of the effects of calming music on our minds, bodies and spirits.
There is testimony after testimony from people using calming harp music to relieve the stresses of their days. We want to share some of these testimonies with you so that you can see how effective and wonderful this calming harp music is and how it could be used to bring calm into your home and office.
I want to spend this time with you talking about something very dear to my heart. It seems that the culture around us is so divisive these days. Political divides, family divides, cultural divides, race divides and on and on. I want to make sure you understand that I am not singling out any one group. I want to address this chaos in a more general fashion.
Rachel was beside herself. Her baby was experiencing an extreme case of eczema over her whole body and the doctors didn’t know what to do. They had tried creams and oral medications, but nothing was working. No one had thought about finding any deficiencies in her diet and giving the proper natural supplements to address it.
There are many instruments available to play music upon, but the harp holds a unique position in the musical instrument family. One of my friends calls the harp the "Queen of Instruments" and jokingly says that when the harp shows up, the other instruments must bow.
