Can Music Have The Power To Heal?

….That song will always be one of my favourites, it just ooozes so much happiness, and you can’t help but tap your feet, whistle, and sing along…it just about instantly puts a smile on your face, the moment you start singing to it!

I just love love love LOVE music!! So much goodness comes from listening to your favourite tunes.  I am very blessed to have to the opportunity to listen to my favourite music cranked up loud all day long in my happy little office space, and Music for me, is my motivator and it not only makes me feel totally awesome…but makes me feel so happy to be alive. It takes away my emptiness and fills it with pure joy, and as I’m writing this post, I’m listening to one of my newest albums – Sky Radio Zomer Top 101 Hits 2012  – it’s jam packed with great songs, a lot of them sound Latin, but I think that there’s something kinda sexy about Latin music…it makes you just wanna groove!

Anyway I wanted to ask the question, Can music really have the power to heal?

Well I think so, to a certain degree at least. As a sufferer of depression since I was very young, and feeling very isolated, lonely and confused, always wondering why I had no friends, I always managed to be able to cheer myself up with music, no matter how crappy and unhappy I felt, I would play my favourite music all day long if I could, and dance away to it. I remember getting my very first job and saving every single penny to by my own stereo…which looking back on it, I am forever grateful to my gorgeous parents for putting up me listening to my favourite music, which was pretty much anything that put me in a good mood, and made me wanna dance! – Pitty for them, they weren’t into the same sort of music, but bless their sweet hearts, they put up with it!

I think music has the ability to take you to your own happy place…what do you think, and do you think it has the power to heal?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read….you are truly awesome….don’t ever forget it!! xx 🙂

Be a Magnet of Gratitude!

gratitude quote

I just love this quote! it pretty much sums up gratitude in nut shell! No matter where you are in life right now, at this very moment, if you aren’t feeling the magic of gratitude, stop for just a moment, and take the moment to think what it is in your life right now, that is stopping you from feeling happy. Is it your current job? is it your relationships? is it that you feel like you don’t have enough money?  – What ever it is, you CAN change it! and it’s really quite simple…just start practicing feeling grateful for every single moment, situation and thing in your life right now, no matter how bad you feel about the situation, turn it around, be thankful and grateful for what it’s taught you and the lessons you’ve learnt.

we often take for granted

The power of gratitude is incredible…once you learn to practice it every single moment, you will start to wonder why you never did before!

Image for one moment…having every single thing you could ever want…the dream home, the dream car, taking the family on countless trips away to your favourite location, being completely in control of your life!  – You can have it all! it’s the law of gratitude, – what you give out, you receive, and it’s been proven time and time again, by so many famous people. There’s even countless books on gratitude, – my favourite is “The Magic” written by Rhonda Byrne, the same author of  the very popular book, “The Secret.”

If you haven’t got the book, I urge you to get yourself a copy….it really is an awesome read, and a powerful book. If you follow her teachings and advice, you will start to see your life change almost instantly!

When you start practicing gratitude, being truly grateful for everything you have, just like a magnet you will attract great things!

It all just starts with you….how you see the world, and those around you will reflect upon your attitude and in your life. You’ve heard it said, ‘life is like a mirror, when you smile at it, it smiles back at you’ – it’s true! There is a lesson in everything that has happened to us, good or bad…it’s bought you here to where you are today, and shaped you to be the amazing person you truly are!

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading….Thank you for stopping by….you really are AMAZING! xo 🙂
