sound harmonics—healing or detriment?

On a group email list I belong to, someone brought up the topic of heavy rock music and rap being unhealthy. As I was reading the email, I realized that my experience of those genres of music was a bit different. I also reflected on some other teachings I have been exposed to.

I studied Sound Energy Healing a few years ago. I asked the teacher what he thought about heavy metal and rap and how it’s vibration affected us. He suggested it is what the person believes that will give them the results. Basically, we give something it’s meaning. Our experience of certain sounds, determine our reaction to them.

Since then I have reflected on this teaching and I have heard it supported in A Course in Miracles with “You give it it’s meaning”. I have heard it expressed as “energy follows thought” in Esoteric Healing class. I have heard variations of that teaching with Law of Attraction and Quantum Physics. And even Peak Potentials has a version of it: “my thoughts, equal my feelings, which lead to my actions which give me my results.”

I respect and value Dr. Emoto’s studies: What the Bleep!?: Water Crystals, Miraculous Messages of Water, and Conscious Water Crystals, The Power of Prayer with the water tests, yet I am careful to note that those tests were a direct result of his and his colleagues’ experience. His thoughts equaled his feelings, which led to his actions and his results. I also believe in peace and that prayer affects life energy, so I believe much of the findings he came to. Those are my beliefs though, which have come through my experience and reflections.

What I have found is there are times when listening to heavy rock has helped me to move energy along that I was having difficulty moving out before. I believe music helps to shift and connect to innate primitive energy just like the heavy drumbeats, dance and ceremony of indigenous cultures were used.

In my life I have seen where there is value in many different kinds of music, sound and vibrations. I have also seen how as my vibration changes I am more sensitive to others. In other words as my experiences in life change and my vibration shifts, I find I am more attracted to people and music that feeds my soul differently. This isn’t to say that I still don’t find value in heavy rock and some rap, and some of my long-time relationships even though we are different.

What about you? What kind of music fills you with harmony? What music helps to shift pent up energy and allow more harmony in your day?
