The Practice--Quantum Music

Gregorian chant, Wikipedia

Quantum Music (Frequency = Attraction)

So many times I listen to online spiritual radio shows and webinars and I rarely hear a radio host or spiritual teacher make the connection between a person’s experience and their musical choices.  I understand that this is my piece of the puzzle, Gregg Braden has made this connection in his programs and I’m sure he’s not a lone wolf.

However, the usual scenario goes like this.  A person calls in or lands in the “hot seat” for the Abraham/Hicks teachings, for example, and they wax on about how they have used all of the tools offered by Esther Hicks and the Abraham spirit collective, but they keep attracting situations only to end up feeling disappointed when those situations disappear into thin air.  And yes, getting in touch with beliefs and patterns, pivoting negative to positive thoughts, and “softening resistance” are key pieces to magnetic attraction also known as the Law of Attraction.  However, there are some followers of the Abraham/Hicks teachings who upload LOA videos on YouTube along with obnoxious music.  And if those people who aren’t manifesting their dreams listen to low-frequency music, then good luck.

I also know people that refrain from watching the news, meditate, eat high-vibration foods and appear to be on a positive path.  But they scrimp on the music frequencies. There is a tendency for people to listen to music with provocative lyrics or programmed synthesized or what I like to call canned music.  With just a bit of research, someone on the path could learn the basics of sound healing and psychoacoustic research (the study of sound on the nervous system). 

With a lot more research, someone could learn about ancient musical practices, while also learning about the power of intent, purpose and frequency.  Now, how many pop musicians do we know of practice a spiritual awareness of intent and purpose with their music? Occasionally a pop song comes along that transcends the norm and creates universal harmony, but not often.

Similar to high vibration food (think super foods, organic foods, food grown and processed with loving intent), music that comes from the heart with a healing or uplifting intent possesses a higher frequency.  When we listen to music, we digest it and the sound resonates in our bones and muscles, not to mention, our minds, long after we stopped listening to that music.  And in fact, that music has found a niche somewhere inside our brain where it remains until an event triggers it and we hear the music again, even if only in our minds.

While I don’t have a background in psychology and I’m hardly a scientist, I imagine that music, like negative beliefs we stuff down into our subconscious, also causes unconscious disturbances in our daily lives without our awareness.  After all, many songs contain text and that text when repeated several times, such as in a chorus of a song can turn into a thought pattern which eventually turns into a belief.  So why would we choose to listen to lyrical content with a negative message when we know about the Law of Attraction and work on manifesting our dream lives?

The following steps will help you develop music consciousness.  Practice patience since like any consciousness practice, music awareness takes months, if not years to develop.  

Keep a music journal while taking note of the emotional and physical effects you experience while listening to a specific song or piece of music.  Also mention the mood you were in before and after listening to the music.

Read books on sound healing and psychoacoustic research

Seek out recordings that were produced by sound healers and psychoacoustic experts such as Joshua Leeds

Explore traditional and classical music from around the world with a history of musical purpose and intent

Work with a sound healer to cleanse your aura of previous low-frequency music you exposed yourself to

Eliminate sugary pop music, heavy metal, hip-hop with derogatory or inflammatory lyrics and avoid businesses (if possible) who play this type of music in the background.  (You could even suggest other musical choices to the businesses if this feels appropriate)

Watch less television (since commercials are chocked full of manipulative music)

Spend more time sitting in silence

Exercise (jog or walk) without musical devices (There is research that shows our ears growing more sensitive to sound during a workout so listening to music through a portable player while exercising could lead to hearing loss).

Take an honest look at how you use music in your life and make conscious changes when necessary

Follow these steps and you’ll soon feel comfortable listening to high-frequency music such as Mozart, Bach, Native American flute, Cuban son, etc...And you’ll also notice that you attract more positive life circumstances.  After all, music represents sound vibration, lyrics represent mantras, and if you wish to create a joyful reality, start and end with music.
