Good Sounds vs. Destructive Sounds
The pristine quiet is unbeatable for helping get into a state of focus and meditation.
Have you ever sat or walked and marveled at how quiet it was. It’s so unusual NOT to have noises whirring about, that quiet places can even seem disturbing to our state of mind.
Modern noise pollution creeps up on you in subtle ways. Soon, without realizing it, you’ve turned into a noise junkie. Humming from machines, traffic rumble, planes flying overhead, people talking nearby, cellphones ringing, TVs and radios on whenever and wherever possible – what is it that we’re hearing day in and out.
It’s definitely not uplifting and relaxing.
Even listening to music is used to block out noise. Like eating food to drown your sorrows. It’s hypnotic and addictive.
Seeing people with their iPods at all times of the day drowning out their lives with sound is an interesting and recent phenomenon. Before the advent of iPods and the walkman, we had books, magazines, or shock of shocks – our thoughts - to keep us occupied. Now, sound is used to keep us from thinking clearly, reading and connecting to the world.
I use positive sound selectively. Positively charged music might be playing while I’m writing. Or driving my car. Occasionally during mealtime. And, just for pleasure, while I’m relaxing in my favorite comfy chair.
Music is a treasure. As with any treasure, it can be overused, abused and even used as a weapon. When negatively charged music turns into noise, it’s another form of pollution – invisible but just as dangerous to your peace of mind.
Be sure to make room for quiet time frequently. Especially now as we head into the busiest time of the year. You’ll maintain your emotional and mental equilibrium. And, you will feel a deep sense of happiness and gratitude.
Use music to calm your hectic days. Only positively-charged, high frequency music will do the trick. The Secret Power of Words and Music includes both music and words to soothe and uplift the soul. Make this 5 CD package your gift to yourself this season.
