For as long as I can remember, I have loved the sound of music. I’m not talking about the movie, although the movie is quite inspirational. I really love music, any kind of music! Most of all, I love to sing. I sing and listen to music daily. I believe that my life is a song and all of God’s children have a song. The ability to sing our song is a precious gift many take for granted. Not me! No one can sing my song for me but me. So I’m singing my song for me and the glory of God.
I wake up in the morning with a song on my heart. By the time I get into the shower I’m ready to give voice to it. When I get into the car heading towards my destinations, I’m singing loud and strong. I sing because I’m happy! I sing because I’m free! I sing because God is watching over me!
Singing is one of the easiest ways to raise the vibration of your body. Through song you can heal as well as harmonize with others. Harmony produces pleasant effects. It allows us to form friendships; reach consensus and understanding; and experience fellowship. You may remember the 1971 coca cola commercial with its chorus, “I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony …” The harmony it depicted was so powerful. Although, I have only natural talent and very limited skills, I’d like to teach the world to sing. More singing is what the world needs now.
Singing is a natural anti-depressant. It lowers stress levels; improves mental alertness; and releases muscle tension. Through song we can move energy; engage both the heart and mind; and bring healing. Even if we are not conscious of this as it is taking place, we feel better after singing because of the release of the endorphins, the feel good chemicals in your brain. The human body is tuned through the musical vibrations. The seven musical notes that we use to sing our songs correspond to the seven major energy centers (chakras) in the body. Each energy center has its own sound frequency. Singing is also an aerobic activity. The breathing needed to sing draws more oxygen into the blood and causes better circulation.
I use the gift of song to heal myself daily and get me through everything in life. You can too! Sing your songs and experience healing physically, emotionally and spiritually.
