Knees up mother Brown...MUSIC HEALS
Life begins at 40 -- but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times. But living and adopting music begins now, improving the quality of life at any stage, nevertheless the apathies after forty.
Almost everyone of us at a certain time, to a certain genre has or will fall in love with music. Most of us were breast fed with music as babies and literally as adults during love adventures.
Age withers only the outside, fill your inner most with music, let your spirit rejoice and remember the dead needs no physical attributes to enjoy the love of music.
Some do rhythmically dance or exercise to music and for pretty magic moments some do relax to it.
Music is every where, music will always remain a part of us. To fulfil the sentimental powers of music will be up to us, our choice, respect and obedience to the music we prefer.
We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dream. Wandering by lone sea breakers, and sitting by desolate streams. World losers and world forsakers, for whom the pale moon gleams. Yet we are movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems
Emotionally music we choose to hear can do us a lot more good than the usual sound we bounce to.
Research has revealed that music can do a lot more, healing wise, with it's powerful emotional and sentimental properties.
Oh Mockingbird have you ever heard words that I've never heard.
The new sound-sphere is global. It ripples at great speed across languages, ideologies, frontiers and races. The economics of this musical Esperanto is staggering. Rock and pop breed concentric worlds of fashion, setting and life-style. Popular music has brought with it sociologies of private and public manner, of group solidarity. The politics of Eden come loud.
Men having biopsies for prostate cancer are known to experience far less anxiety, stress and pain whilst listening to some smooth classical music during the procedure.
Research has shown that the brain releases a feel good chemical called dopamine when it hears stirring music and it revealed that the higher the levels of dopamine the less likely we feel pain or anxiety. Dopamine is actually a monoamine neurotransmitter found in the brain and essential for the normal functioning of the central nervous system.
Meditatively music can also have a calming effect by lowering heart rate and reducing the production of stress hormones in particularly sick people. Here are some published guides to help improve our health with our love for music.
Take cancer for example:
One of the traumatic aspects of breast cancer for any woman is to have a mastectomy which is the surgical removal of a breast.
It causes intense anxiety and often undermines a person's image of her femininity. However music can make a real difference. A study showed women who underwent music therapy were considerably less stressed and worried in the days immediately after their surgery than those who did not listen to music. Playing music during chemotherapy has been essential to some cancer centres, requesting for music in conditions like wise can take your mind off the effects of the toxic drugs.
I have no pleasure in any man who despises music. It is no invention of ours: it is a gift of God. I place it next to theology. Satan hates music: he knows how it drives the evil spirit out of us.
Music is the fourth great material want, first food, then clothes, then shelter, then music.
