Sounds of Music{1}

Cars honking, planes landing and people talking on their phones. Boxes falling, garages opening and closing and shoe heels clanking across pavement.  Noise pollution can be so overwhelming.  People get affected.

But it’s not just life’s unmitigated sources that modify our moods.

I’ve just so happened to have numerous conversations lately about chatter. And not just the clamor and commotion of life passing by that can weigh on our nerves either.  It would seem the culprit is actually the inner jabbering that sends our minds to a boil.

I watched a lady yesterday yell profanities at a man in a passing car when she was the one who sped through the stop sign out of turn leaving the guy slamming on his breaks in the middle of a four way intersection. Late for work? Missing an important appointment?  Or just letting her own mind run away with her so she takes it out on the next unsuspecting individual to cross the path?

How ignorant can we be? Do we really not know yet that when you lash out someone else you might as well be looking in a mirror?  Have you not figured out a way to find your peace? You’re not still giving in to your childish reserves are you?

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or where you come from.  Music is the perfect unmedicated, uncensored answer to mood enhancement.  It effects our heart rates and our breathing.  Sound waves effect our brain functions.

Music can actually make us better people. It can change habits, thwart off uneasy feelings and help you succeed in whatever journey you are embarking on.  Music helps us meditate, keeps us focussed and it can teach us. Music helps us be creative, uplifts our spirits and helps us get over bad breakups.

It’s surprising to me, how many people aren’t aware of the magical powers of the sounds of music.  Music can enhance a mood you are already in or it can completely alter your state of mind (whatever it might be).

Music is a universal language and it is always willing to help.

You just have to press play.
