Music for Learning CD
From the ancient times, music is something that has put
people, in touch with their inner most feelings. Different kind of music
works upon different emotions of an individual, and releases the various
incomplete emotions leading towards a total healing of body and mind.
The mind and body are connected. The human mind is not housed in the
brain as per the conventional thought but rather; the mind is present
everywhere and therefore pervades every cell of the body. What is the
human mind? Mind is an aggregate of all life experiences be it pain,
pleasure, hurt, anger, joy, anxiety; it could be anything.
Any positive emotion causes a cell to vibrate at a higher frequency
and negative vibrations cause the cells to vibrate at lower frequency.
The negative emotion is nothing but an incompletely experienced emotion.
These emotions when stored in the cells of the body are the diseases.
What is music? According to the ancient thinkers, there
are three aspects of music: singing, playing and dancing. All three represent
rhythm, and all three represent tone in some form or other. And what
is the effect of music? The effect of music is to regulate the rhythm
of another person, and to tune a person to the music that is being performed.
What secret is there in music which attracts all those who listen to
it? It is the rhythm which is being created. It is the tone of that music
which tunes a soul and raises it above depression and despair of everyday
life in this world. And if one knew what rhythm was needed for a particular
individual in his trouble and despair, what tone was needed, and to what
pitch that person's soul should be raised, one would then be able to
heal him with music.
Often the cause of illness is within. Although, no doubt, many things
are caused outwardly. No single rule will cover everything. Undoubtedly,
as things have changed in the world and materialism has spread throughout
the world, this has influenced things, not only in the West but in the
East also. The use of music for health and healing of the soul, which
was prevalent in ancient times, is not found to the same extent now.
Music has been made a pastime, the means of forgetting instead of realizing.
And it is the use one makes of things which constitutes their fault or
The rhythm which is necessary for our
cure is brought about by bringing the circulation of the blood
into a certain rhythm and speed.
By this we learn that health is a condition
of perfect rhythm and tone. And what is music? music is rhythm
and tone. When the health is out of order, it means the music
is out of order. Therefore, when the music is not right in us
the help of harmony and rhythm is very necessary to bring us
into a state of harmony and rhythm. This way of healing can be
studied and understood by studying the music of one's own life,
by studying the rhythm of the pulse, the rhythm of the beating
of the heart and of the head. Physicians who are sensitive to
the rhythm determine the condition of the patient by examining
the rhythm of the pulse, the beating of the heart, the rhythm
of the circulation of the blood. And to find the real complaint
a physician, with all his material knowledge, must depend upon
his intuition and upon the use of his musical qualities.
